Synopsis
There’s no turning back. I can’t go home a failure–again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying.  

Randi Sawyer
It started with a shady business proposal I should’ve turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I’m not, and bonus, I’m at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC’s seedy political scene the more I realize I can’t trust anyone if I’m going to make it out alive. Until him. Secret Service agent Trey Benson is bitter, jaded, and oh so hot with his mischievous smirk and cocky attitude. He hates me, just like everyone else, but he might just be who I need to survive this mess I’ve landed myself in. 

Trey Benson
Forced onto her protection detail, I’m certain she’s just another Political Barbie in this city. I should know–I’ve dated most of them. Except she’s not. Funny, foulmouthed and crazy as hell, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, Randi Sawyer just might be the one person who can make a difference in DC–and in me. Too bad the boss says she’s off-limits, that it’s too risky for her career and mine. Good thing I’ve never been great at sticking to orders. 

Power Play is the first book in the five-book Power Play series. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

Synopsis
You win some, you lose some.

Back at home with half a college degree after the fiasco of the century sent her packing, it’s safe to say that Renee Nyobé is losing some. She’s a hot mess, and not the cute kind. No, if hot messes had categories, hers would be ‘littering the stairs of the metro station with your sweaty underwear because you were too busy rushing to the job interview you’re already late for to zip up your yoga bag.’

A job—any job—is just what she needs to get her life back on track, and it might as well be at Montreal’s most famous dive bar, Taverne Toulouse.

Dylan Trottard is winning some. As Taverne Toulouse’s new manager, he’s got one rule for himself: don’t screw up. Following that rule gets a lot harder when the woman he’s spent the past three years trying to forget starts working behind the bar.

They were never supposed to want each other, and they sure as hell aren’t supposed to want each other now. She’s the girl that got away before he even had her, and he’s the guy she didn’t think would ever give her a second glance.

Now they can’t keep their eyes off one another, and the stakes are even higher than before. There’s a lot to lose, but as the pull between them gets harder and harder to ignore, Renee and Dylan start asking how much winning is worth.

Glass Half Full is part of the Barflies series, a set of standalone romantic comedies that chronicle the lives and loves of the staff at a Montreal dive bar.

Excerpt #2
“I always wondered something,” she continues when it’s clear I can’t speak. “That night, did you…Were you…Did you want to kiss me?”

I wanted to do more than kiss her. I wanted to breathe her in. I wanted to inhale her.

“It would have been a bad idea,” I manage to get out through my clenched jaw. She’s staring up at me through those damn eyelashes, and all I can think about is her mouth, her neck, that inch of her gorgeous bare shoulders I can see before they meet with the edge of her coat.

“I’m glad you didn’t.”

Everything grinds to a halt. 

Shit, shit, shit.

“I’m glad you didn’t,” she repeats, “because I wasn’t ready for you to kiss me then, not like I am now.

Synopsis
When Ella Karman debuts on the Social Stock Exchange, she finds out life as a high profile “Influencer” isn’t what she expected. Everyone around her is consumed by their rankings, in creating the smoke and mirrors that make them the envy of the world.

But then Ella’s best friend betrays her, her rankings tank, and she loses—everything.

Leaving her old life behind, she joins Keystone, a secret school for thieves, where students are trained to seal everything analog and original because something—or someone—is changing history to suit their needs.

Partnered with the annoyingly hot—and utterly impossible—Garrett Alexander, who has plenty of his own secrets, Ella is forced to return to the Influencer world, while unraveling a conspiracy that began decades ago.

,

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
“But doesn’t being a Disconnect mean no technology? How would anyone even know about me?” I ask.

“We may live off the grid, but it’s important we’re aware of what’s going on in the world. At Keystone, we’re a special legion of Disconnects. Our mission is to steal analog history—to preserve the truth—before corporations and the government can alter the past to benefit their personal futures. We’re in danger of entering a Digital Dark Age, where the only information available is digital. Tape recordings, printed books, films, photographs—proof of history—are decaying and becoming scarce. Digital information is easy to tamper with, and there are forces at work that want current society to reflect their version of the past.” Allard sips her tea before continuing.

“Often, we’re after priceless works that are protected by the latest technology, so we have to understand tech even though we don’t use it ourselves. We have internet access in the Crypt—that’s our code-breaking library—and the TMI-feed is likely a guilty pleasure for some of the girls. They watch the Networks—they have to. For your Initiation Heist, you’ll be asked to go under cover in Influencer society, and you’ll need to know how to fit in—and how to hide in plain sight.”

“Initiation Heist?” I almost choke on my tea, the cup rattling in my trembling hands at having to reenter society.

“It’s the final test before becoming a full-fledged Keystone member with access to our top-level secrets, but don’t worry,” Allard says. “You’ll have plenty of time to learn our ways—and you’ll participate in a heist as an assistant to an Initiate—before you’re asked to lead a heist the following year.”

“Lead a heist?” My eyes bulge. “Right.”

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Link: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU | Amazon DE | Amazon IT

Synopsis
A break-up and a car accident are no way to begin your seventeenth birthday.

For Theo Montgomery, that is exactly how it began. Her bad luck turns worse when she returns home from a school dance to find her home engulfed in flames – with her parents still inside.

Theo is sent to live with her estranged aunt, Elizabeth, in Salem, Massachusetts. Salem proves to offer many new discoveries, one of those being that Theo, like her aunt, is a witch. A witch who must keep her magic in check, lest the Town’s witch hunters discover that magic has returned to the world after more than three hundred years. But how can she navigate a new school, new magical powers and avoid the witch hunters, when she finds herself enjoying the company of one?

Trystan de Lancre is a dangerous witch hunter and the only son of the Salem witch hunter clan leader, the notorious Joseph de Lancre. Despite his growing feelings for Theo, Trystan has his own reasons for getting close to her – and they are far from romantic. Yet, Trystan isn’t the only one keeping secrets. Theo knows her aunt is hiding something, something linked to the tragedy that happened in Salem long ago, and to Theo, herself.

Salem’s dark past rises to haunt Theo and the present-day witches, unraveling a shocking revelation: the true cause of the Salem Witch Trials.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #2
Trystan saw her before she saw him.

It was a happy coincidence that he had been driving through Town when he saw her inside a black Jeep and trailed her until she’d found a spot somewhere along Essex Street, not once losing sight of her.

How could he miss her? Those strikingly pale eyes shaded by dark lashes, opposing her incredibly fair skin and long, equally dark hair. She was like a walking yin-yang, conflicting shades of black and white; shadows and snowfall.

Her scent still lingered in his car, a faint smell of jasmine. It had been nearly two days, but every time Trystan entered his beloved Camaro, he was instantly inundated with the intoxicating aroma that was Theo. Some perfumes included jasmine undertones, but this was something else entirely; not a perfume-just Theo. Now that he knew she was a witch, he wondered if her persistent scent was part of some spell.

His plan was simple. He would continue to get close to her. Watch her for any signs that she could use magic, as his father had instructed. Perhaps he could charm her enough to let her guard down and divulge information about Elizabeth. After all, she barely knew her aunt: the loyalty there was still fragile.

Trystan thought if he could prove Elizabeth was responsible for murdering his mother, not only would his father spare Theo, as she played no part in that, but in addition, Theo would turn on her aunt. He might be a hunter, but he still didn’t want to see any harm come to the little witch. All he had to do was get inside her head.

The way she is already inside yours? a nasty voice inside his head hissed.

Trystan shuddered; trying to shake the memory of the dream he had the other night-if you could even call it a dream. He had been in the gym in the basement of his home, working through his frustrations, when suddenly, he found himself in the middle of the ocean. He saw Theo floating seamlessly with the gentle waves. She was radiant, as if in her element, and he couldn’t take his eyes off her.

He didn’t know why he had spoken the words he declared to her, but he knew with every ounce of his being that they were absolutely true. She was anything but ordinary. He awoke just as quickly, finding himself back in his home gym, except about an hour had passed.

As Trystan waited in his car, he spotted Theo entering the famous witch shop, Hex. He rolled his eyes. How predictable. Hex was famous. There was another shop in New Orleans.

He was just about to open the door to follow her in, when his passenger door opened, and someone climbed in the passenger’s seat.

A veil of pale hair was visible from the corner of his eye. “Grace,” he said through gritted teeth.

“Hi, handsome.” Her almond shaped black eyes searched his face. “Miss me?”

“Like a headache,” he replied. He had avoided Grace since returning from Boston. His brief experience of dating her was akin to dating the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. She was impulsive and spoiled. But most of all, she was completely insane.

She laughed. “Well, from what I remember, you enjoyed a little bit of pain,” she smiled wickedly. “So, I guess I should take that as a compliment.”

“What do you want, Grace? I’m busy,” Trystan replied, not bothering to conceal his aggravation.

“If stalking witches is the new definition for busy, then you must be overwhelmed. We could be ‘busy’ doing something else.” Grace leaned over, revealing too much skin through her low-cut shirt. Trystan rolled his eyes: Typical Grace, dressing like a prim and proper Puritan at school then dressing for attention afterward.

Her sickeningly sweet perfume filled his nostrils, causing him to shift away from her. Grace noticed and eyed him coolly, the barest hint of fury in her black eyes.

She made a sound of disgust. “So, it’s true. You are in love with that thing.” She spat the last word out as if her tongue was on fire and getting it out of her mouth would give her some relief.

“In love? I barely know her.” This time, Trystan leaned toward her, causing her to shift back. “Tell your insipid father to stop spreading rumors,” he said angrily.

Grace’s father, Dr. Brian Hopkins, was known to plant seeds of discord and make allegations against the other witch hunting families, especially considering they were hierarchal, and the de Lancre’s and the Hopkins’ continuously challenged each other for the top rank. Dr. Hopkins had probably seen Trystan with Theo and was the snitch who had told his father.

Grace’s mouth twitched; he could see the rage building in her face. She grabbed him by the collar of his shirt with a force that startled him and yanked him towards her.

“Take care of the witch, or I will,” Grace said, every single word dripping with malice. She released her grip on his shirt and smoothed one hand down her long silky blonde hair. She took a deep breath, transforming into the cool and collected girl she outwardly displayed. “And,” she began, her voice turning soft and coy like a little girl, “you know how much I love to play with my things.”

He heard the door pop open and slam shut, leaving only Grace’s threat behind.

Trystan knew Grace was referring to torture. All witch hunting families had their personal histories of brutalization, but the present-day Hopkins clan actually took pride in their techniques and revered their ancestors for their brilliancy. Trystan had learned that Matthew Hopkins, the self-proclaimed “Witchfinder General” and one of the earliest witch hunters, had resorted to unspeakable methods of horror.

At one point, obtaining a confession through torture was outlawed in England, but sleep deprivation was not considered a form of torture. Matthew Hopkins had used sleep deprivation to coax a confession out of one of his victims, keeping the poor woman awake for days. He was brilliant and sadistic, and it seemed Grace had inherited her ancestor’s penchant for causing pain and suffering.

Grace threatening to make Theo her “plaything” had awakened the sense of protectiveness Trystan had experienced last night in his father’s study. He didn’t understand why he felt the overwhelming urge to protect her. Trystan laughed as he recalled Grace mentioning that he was “in love.”

Love just wasn’t in the cards for him. His father would see to it that he married Grace, keeping the families interlocked to breed more “purebred” witch hunters. His father had married his mother out of the same arrangement. Trystan could have other lovers on the side–it was no secret that his father kept his own bed warm with the company of other women even before his mother’s death-which had been another reason for Trystan to despise him. But he knew he would never have the love he had read about in books. He could never love someone the way Edgar Allan Poe had loved Annabelle Lee.

Besides, as he’d told Grace, he barely knew Theo. He thought she was beautiful, sure, but there was a stark difference between lust and love. He was confident that whatever urge that drove him to seek her out would dissipate once he finally slept with her, as it had done with all the others.

Glancing back across the street, it was time to set his plan in motion. Taking a deep breath, he got out of the car and walked across the street into Hex.

About the Author
Hello! I’m Nicole Rubino, author of Something Wicked, the first in a four-book series about witches, witch hunters, and everything in between!

I fondly remember Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach as the first book that took me on an adventure, and so, I fell in love with reading and writing fantasy. Another one of my favorite books by Dahl should come as no surprise: The Witches.

My equal love for history propelled me to dive further into the witch hunts throughout Europe and the witch hunts in Salem, which is where I got the idea for my debut novel.

Authors I love and whom inspire me are Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black, Sarah J. Maas, Jay Kristoff and Pierce Brown.

Synopsis
A painfully awkward love story.

Incomprehensibly awkward Elizabeth Wilde is desperate for love. Connection. Intimacy. After a lifetime of romantic failures, the twenty-one-year-old gamer realizes she needs help. Professional help. She needs…

A sex tutor.

The devastatingly hot jock Austin Jacobs is just the man for the job. As the reigning campus sex god, he has the playboy act down pat. But underneath those six-pack abs beats a broken heart. He doesn’t trust people and he sure as hell doesn’t believe in love.

The odd couple strike a deal. Four weeks of ‘tutoring’ for five thousand dollars.

When Austin coaxes Elizabeth out from behind her computer screen, the attraction they feel is undeniable. They’re both a little broken, but somehow their jagged edges fit. And when their world comes tumbling down on top of them, they each have to decide if this weird thing called love is worth fighting for.

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
I change the subject, asking, “What’s your major?”

“Pre-med.” Her eyes practically sparkle with her response.

“You want to be a doctor?” I can’t keep the surprise out of my voice, unable to picture her bedside manner.

“Technically, I guess. But I am really looking at going into medical research.” She answers my question without me having to ask it.

“Why medical research?”

She balks at the question, picking imaginary lint off her T-shirt instead of answering me. I sit quietly and stare at her until she finally answers with, “I’ve just always thought biology was interesting.” I give her a go-on gesture and she meekly continues. “Humans are basically insanely complex machines that took hundreds of thousands of years of evolution to create. We’re just starting to understand that even though we are these complicated and sophisticated organisms, we’re all still so fragile and flawed.” She stares as her hands in her lap, embarrassed by her own enthusiasm. 

“That’s almost poetic.”

She shifts in her seat and says, “It’s really lame, I know. I’m such a nerd, right?

“Don’t do that.” Her eyes snap to mine at the reprimand. “Don’t belittle yourself or what you care about. The world is going to beat you down enough, you don’t need to help it out. If you believe something, own it. Fuck everybody else.” She blinks several times, like she’s holding back tears, gazing at me like I saved a litter of puppies from a burning building. Now it’s my turn to shift awkwardly in my seat. I’m no one’s hero. I change the subject, “I just want to make money. Lots of it.” 

“There’s a lot more to life than money.”

“Spoken like someone who has a lot of it,” I scoff. “Exactly how rich are you, anyway?”

“I’m not rich.” She sounds almost offended. “I mean, my father has money, but—”

I interrupt her. “Same difference. You have lots of brothers and sisters?” 

“No. It’s just me.” Her face goes squishy, eyebrows pinched together, lips scrunched to one side. Her eyes dart up and left, like she’s trying to see inside her own mind. She’s working out what I’m getting at. It’s hideously captivating. 

“You’re the only child of a rich man. I bet if you decided tomorrow you never wanted to work another day in your life you wouldn’t have to.” She seems lost in thought. I can’t help but wonder if she’s actually adding up her net worth in her head.

“It never occurred to me not to work. That’s just what people do. But I guess you’re right. If I didn’t want to, I wouldn’t have to work.” She isn’t bragging. If anything, she seems a bit self-conscious about being wealthy, like she thinks it will make me see her differently. I’m surprised by her honesty.

“Yep, hate to break it to you, sweetheart. But you’re rich,” I confirm with a laugh.

“I’ve never really thought about it,” she says softly, almost to herself. It sounds like it’s a revelation to her. 

She’s so naïve. She’s never really experienced life, the good or the bad. She lives a sheltered beige existence, never knowing the brilliant shine of intense pleasure or the dark grunge of true suffering. She’s only tasted a fraction of what the world has to offer. Her unassuming innocence is intriguing.

“About money? People who have lots of it rarely do.” I don’t mean it to be an accusation, but that’s how she takes it.

“It’s not like I’m taking my private jet to our family’s island in the Bahamas.” Her definition of being rich is enough to make me laugh. She’s rich because she’ll never have to work to eat. 

“Maybe not. But you had five thousand dollars you seemed to be able to part with quite easily.” It comes out harsher than I meant it to be. I’m frustrated she doesn’t understand what it’s like for people with nothing. 

People like me.

Her irreverent books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth chasing.

Synopsis
She has everything money can buy, but her bodyguard is all she wants—and together they’re exactly what each other needs in this heart-racing romance by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of Call Her Mine.

Actress Remi Divine is sick of bodyguards, sick of stalkers, and sick of feeling like she is always under a microscope. But this movie star isn’t helpless by any means. She’s got a rebellious streak, and she knows how to use it. First order of business: getting rid of the overbearing bodyguards who are sticking to her like glue.

Mason Swift has made protecting others his life, and when Remi ditches his two best men, he takes over and gives it everything he has. Having grown up in the foster-care system, and as a former special operative, he knows all the tricks. Nothing gets by him, especially not gorgeous, sneaky Remi.

He thinks she’s a diva. She thinks he’s arrogant. But when sparks turn to flames and their walls come down, their true hearts are revealed, and their connection is unstoppable. And when tragedy strikes, Remi realizes that being protected isn’t the worst thing in the world—but losing Mason just might be.

Excerpt
“You have to eat, Remi. You can’t exist on an apple when you work as hard as you do.”

She looked at his large hands gripping the steering wheel, deep-set eyes focused on the road, biceps twitching, and her insides got hot. Now, those were sparks.

He glanced over, and his lips quirked into an almost smile. She really liked his almost smile. It was mysterious, like him, and it was real, unlike most of the smiles she saw on people’s faces.

“What’ll it be?” he asked. “Burger? Eggs? We can hit the grocery store.”

“Didn’t anyone ever teach you that when a woman says no, it means no?”

That earned a rough laugh that skated beneath her skin. “Princess, the word no hasn’t come out of your mouth, and you have to eat something. You expended thousands of calories today, and you can’t weigh more than a buck ten soaking wet. You’ll wear yourself out at this rate.”

She stared out the window and said, “Spoken like a man who has probably never been told what to do.”

“I spent years in the military. If you think I haven’t been told what to do, you’re sorely mistaken. How about a protein shake? You don’t even have to chew.”

“No, thank you.”

He stopped at a red light on the corner and pointed to Chapter One, Aurelia’s bookstore. “Doesn’t your friend own that place? She sells baked goods from your other friend’s bakery. How about a cupcake?”

Shocked, she said, “How do you know about Aurelia and Willow?”

He glanced at her out of the corner of his eye and said, “It’s my job to know who you’re in contact with. I’d rather have you put some meat in that smart mouth of yours instead of sugar, but at this point I’d be thrilled to get anything inside you.”

Her mind went straight to the gutter, and the way his eyes locked on the road and he white-knuckled the steering wheel, she had a feeling he was thinking the same thing.

“I’m fine,” she said quickly. “Let’s just get home, please.” Before the images your comment conjured get me even hotter.

When they got home, Mason checked the house while Remi waited by the door, which seemed ridiculous to her, but whatever . . .

She needed to get him out of her head, and the farther away he was, the better. The man sucked the oxygen right out of her lungs when they were alone.

“All clear,” he said as he came down the stairs. “Why don’t I whip up one of those boxed meals you’ve got in the fridge?”

The image of Mason wearing nothing but a pair of leather briefs and carrying a whip slammed into her. Holy crap. She was definitely losing her mind.

She pushed past him, heading up the stairs, and said, “I don’t need you to whip anything, thank you. I’m going to change and relax in the hot tub. You can eat my box if you want.” It wasn’t until she reached the landing that she realized what she’d said. Mortified, she spun around and said, “The meal! I meant the boxed meal!”

He chuckled.

Damn him for having that effect on her!

Synopsis
“Captivating, fun, and totally swoon-worthy! This is the kind of story my reader heart craves.” ―Rachel Harris, New York Times bestselling author of Eyes on Me

Available in print for the first time, and with exclusive bonus content only found in the print version! Fall in love with Sally and Becks all over again.

Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.

Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.

Her solution: She needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.

Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal―even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.

The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life―and he’s completely clueless.

This book features two best friends, one special-edition Yoda Snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses, and begs the question:

Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?

 —————————————————————————-

ADORKABLE Teaser

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
“You’re not seriously going to listen to them,” I said flatly.

“What else can I do?”

“Becks, beware the dark side.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“It’s a Yoda-ism,” I said, “and you know exactly what it means.  Becks, have you no shame?”

“Nope,” he said, lifting the jersey over his head in one swift pull, causing a mixture of applause, screaming and appreciative sighs.

I shook my head, struggling to keep my eyes north of his jaw line.

“What can I say, Sal?” he said, backing away.  “It’s like that line from that show Oklahoma.  I’m just a guy who can’t say no.”  Flicking his jersey at one of the cheerleaders, he hot footed it out to center field, grinning all the while.  He gave a frowning Coach Crenshaw a swat to the backside, and then the team got down to business.

I wrote down Becks’s quote, making a side note to include it in my next article, while the girl who’d caught Becks’s jersey gripped the shirt to her heart and pretended to faint.

At least, I hoped it was pretend.

About the Book
Title: THE PRINCESS PLAN
Series: A Royal Wedding #1
Author: Julia London
Publisher: Harlequin
Release Date: November 19, 2019
Genre:
 Adult Contemporary Romance
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AUAmazon DE | Amazon FR | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | GooglePlay

Synopsis
Princes have pomp and glory—not murdered secretaries and crushes on commoners.

Nothing gets the tongues of London’s high society wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it’s all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefited from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater interest in Eliza. 

With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, there’s nothing more salacious than a prince dallying with a commoner. Sebastian finds Eliza’s contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but they’ll have to work together if they’re going to catch the culprit. And when things heat up behind closed doors, it’s the prince who’ll have to decide what comes first—his country or his heart. 

Advanced Praise for The Princess Plan

“It completely charmed me… the chemistry is so delicious. I simply didn’t want to put it down.” —Nicola Cornick, USA TODAY bestselling author

“Charming, witty and warm. This is perfect historical romance.” —Sarah Morgan, USA TODAY bestselling author

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
When one lived as simply as Eliza Tricklebank, one did not expect to gain an invitation to a ball, much less meet a prince. And yet, she had somehow managed to put herself in the receiving line to be introduced to a prince, without the slightest bit of assistance other than a wee bit of rum punch.

She couldn’t even say which prince she was waiting to meet, or how many of them there were in total. She’d heard there were at least two of them presently in England, but for all she knew, there could be scores of them roaming about.

It seemed amusing now to think that this evening, and this moment, and the idea that Eliza might make the acquaintance of an actual prince, had all begun only days ago when Caroline had called at Bedford Square where Eliza lived with her father.

Caroline had news about the ball, gleaned from the revered Mrs. Cubison, the modiste from whom she’d commissioned masks for the three of them. “Mrs. Cubison offered that she’d been retained a month ago to provide masks for the Alucians, and that she and her ladies had worked for days to fulfill their wishes.” She’d spoken quickly, with much excitement, even as she lazed on Eliza’s bed.

Hollis had gasped and reached for paper. “Not another word until I have my pencil—”

“You won’t believe what I tell you,” Caroline had said.

“I will.”

“The truth will be known soon enough, I suppose—”

“Caro, by all that is holy, if you don’t tell us, I will squeeze it from you with my bare hands,” Hollis had warned.

Caroline had laughed gaily. She enjoyed provoking Hollis, which Eliza had pointed out to her sister more than once. Hollis stubbornly refused to accept it.

“All right, here it is. Every single mask is black and identical.”

Hollis and Eliza had stared at their best friend, who very calmly pillowed her hands behind her head and crossed her feet at the ankles.

“Why?” Eliza had asked, only slightly curious about this mask detail.

“So you can’t tell the crown prince from the others!” Caroline had cried triumphantly.

Looking around her now, Eliza thought that was very forward thinking by the Alucians because it had worked—she could hardly tell one Alucian from the other. There were scores of tall men dressed in black and identical plain black masks—just like the one she’d encountered in that narrow passageway a quarter of an hour ago.

What a strange encounter that had been. Gentlemen were such odd creatures to her, now that she was at a remove from them by a spinster’s arm length. They could be so presumptuous. She realized now she wouldn’t be able to pick out that man in this crowd of identically dressed men even if she wanted to encounter him again. Which she did not.

Synopsis
What girl doesn’t want to wear a tiara? Me. The one who lives in yoga pants and knows she’s not special enough to be a princess.

One minute I’m starting my dream life in NYC, and the next, a man too hot for his own good is banging on my door, telling me that I’m a long lost princess of a country on the other side of the Atlantic.

Not exactly your typical Friday night in the Big Apple.

Suddenly, all of my plans for the future are yanked away. I’m trapped in a life filled with social obligations—and stilettos!—and an uptight royal family I didn’t know existed. They, and the whole rest of the freaking country, have lofty expectations I’m not sure I can meet.

At least the aforementioned sexalicious man, Elias, is my constant shadow, protecting me with his life. The whole situation is overwhelming. So I’ve secretly put him in charge of my happiness, too…and he’s taking my orders very, very seriously.

So seriously, I’m falling for him even harder than the new country I’m coming to…maybe…love.

And that’s a major problem, because he’s crazy about me, too. I may not know all the zillion rules about being royal, but I know one for sure: No way can a princess date her bodyguard…

Each book in the Unexpectedly Royal series is STANDALONE:
* The Princess Problem
* Ruling the Princess

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
“Damn it, Kelsey, don’t do that. Don’t close down on me.” He grabbed her chin and tilted it up. She looked into blue eyes sparking with…anger? Frustration?

“We were kidding ourselves, Elias, pretending for one night that nothing’s changed doesn’t make it so. Just like pretending we can be together doesn’t make it so.”

His hands slipped down to cup her shoulders. As if he was worried she was about to run out the door. “Maybe I went about this all wrong. I’m sorry for trying to make you feel like you were Kelsey Wishner again, excited Manhattanite. I simply wanted to put a smile on your face.”

“I smile every time I think of you. You’re outrageously handsome, you know. And when I talk, you make me feel like there’s nothing else you’d rather be doing, nowhere else you’d rather be. You make me feel like I matter. Plain old Kelsey Wishner.”

“Extraordinary Kelsey Wishner,” he corrected softly. He looked over her shoulder and cursed. “Stay here.” Then he disappeared through an arched doorway into the…kitchen? She only glimpsed the curve of a small, round wooden table, set with wineglasses and a fat candle in the middle. But there were heady smells coming from the room, a sort of rich tomato sauce with spices she couldn’t identify.

When Elias came back, his jacket and holster were gone. “I’ve turned it all off. Dinner’s on hold. Indefinitely.”

Oh, no. She’d screwed everything up by freaking out about his gun. “You’re going to take me back to my suite now?”

“What? Of course not. Kelsey, what your life has spun into is a new normal, for sure. But one with not a few perks that I promise are worth it.”

Not getting dinner sure didn’t come off as a perk. “Such as?”

“Sex with me.” His cocky grin and ‘you want a piece of this’ pose with one leg outstretched in front and both arms up was pure, absurd male ego on parade. Apparently, Elias knew it, too, because he only held the pose for a few seconds before laughing. “I’m taking a page from the American dating handbook. We’re skipping straight to the sex, because that’s the one thing I know will get your mind to stop spinning about all the changes in your life.”

She could get on board with that. “Consider it my gift to your country.”

Elias gripped her upper arms tightly, and his voice was so deep it rumbled. “You’re a gift to my country, alright. But the only thing that matters right now is what a gift you are to me. Let me show you.”

Before Kelsey could pick up her dropped jaw and reply, Elias moved in. He shuffled her backward a few steps until she was pressed between him and the wall. Pressed tight enough to feel the steel wall of his pecs against her already hard nipples, massive thighs caging in her legs, and the gratifyingly hard and long bulge against her belly. 

Oh, and while they took those few steps, his mouth devoured hers. Heat and speed, yes, but mixed with a thoroughness that left her lips a little bruised and a lot electrified. There was no doubting the depth of his desire.

There was no denying the depth of hers.

Kelsey gave back as good as she got. Her fingers raked across the top of his skull, delighting in the soft brush of his super-short hair. Her tongue danced and tasted and licked. 

It wasn’t nearly enough.

She wanted her bodyguard to stop guarding her body, and start using it.

Kelsey took a deep breath, reminded herself she excelled at graphic design. That her clients called her intuitive. That her boss called her easy to work with. That she’d been voted most likely to make friends in a dystopian society in her high school yearbook. Prince Christian should be the one nervous about meeting her

Except…He probably was. Because of that whole, sticky layer of he and his family actively searching for her. For more than two decades. He wanted his sister back. 

Kelsey didn’t want anything. Aside from not humiliating herself. “Let’s do this.” 

Elias led the way out of the plane and down the stairs. Kelsey kept her eyes glued to each step, refusing to give the universe any shot at mocking her by sending her tumbling in a heap at her brother’s feet. But when she hit the purple carpet runner on the ground, she looked up.

‘Private’ wasn’t exactly the best descriptor of how she’d meet her brother. There were three black SUVs, two police cars, four bodyguard-types, and one man by himself at the base of the stairs with his hands tucked behind his back, feet braced wide. 

Christian was…well, gorgeous. Tall and broad-shouldered in a bright blue suit. Thick, blonde hair topped off high cheekbones and a wide mouth. This man looked like a stand-in for at least four Disney princes. 

Most noticeably, the unusual shade of his violet eyes was an exact match for her own.

Kelsey wasn’t sure what to feel about that, except to catalogue it as more proof that Elias had, indeed, not made the whole thing up.

Synopsis
When Ashley Miller sees a Craigslist ad for an all-expense paid vacation to Scotland with a handsome Highland “escort”, she’s all over it. Worn out from working two jobs to pay off the debts her scam artist ex-husband left her with, she just needs a friggin’ break already. Rolling, misty mountains of the Scottish Highlands, here she comes!

But one minute she’s sipping a latte and the next she’s zapped to the 2nd century and promptly informed she’s managed to wed her handsome Highlander without even an “I do.” Oh, hell no.

After a devastating tragedy, Connall’s tribe is left with few marriageable women. When his Druid priest suggests a place filled with bonnie lasses, he of course agrees to go fetch one for himself. But nothing prepared Connall for his sassy new wife, nor his tribe for a woman determined to see equal rights for all women.

Now the men are threatening revolt if he can’t rein his young wife in, but it might be too late. The women are demanding the men get “woke”—which of course makes no sense because they already woke that morn—and give women “the vote,” whatever the bloody hell that is. Despite all that, Connall can’t stop wanting to convince his wife to get naked, and he’s starting to wonder if he’s been bewitched.

Only the more he gets to know her, the more he starts to think she’s just what they needed. If only he survives her next demand…

SOME LIKE IT PLAID Teaser

 —————————————————————————

Excerpt
“Head out? Where are we?” That trickle of unease bloomed in her heart, her breath catching. Because his words were different. Somehow, he was speaking in a lilting but foreign language, and she’d not only understood every single word, but had answered in the same language. 

To distract herself and, well, because her stomach chose that moment to growl, as if it knew she’d just been handed food and was all, Gimme, woman, she took a bite of bread. 

The yeasty flavor burst on her tongue, along with the taste and crunch of oodles of grains. No dream she’d ever had was this vivid. The details were sharp, down to her being cold. And to the odd taste and texture of the bread. And her hunger. 

The taste, though—a fuzzy memory poked. She took another bite, trying to chase it. Whatever it was, it had been buried so far in her past she couldn’t form it. Except for a fleeting, wonderful feeling of being cherished. 

“Aye, we need to break camp and head to my tribe’s stronghold. And we’re in a land called Scotland.” 

That last word was not in the same language—instead it was in her own—and he said it as if it were a strange word to him. 

“What happened? How did we get here?” She’d asked this last night, but maybe he’d change his answer. 

He strode toward her and knelt. She appreciated he would no doubt repeat himself but took the time to listen to her and patiently explain. “Mungan, our spellcaster, weaved strong magic. Brought me to your land, and then brought us both back here.” He held up a round stone incised with two parallel deep grooves around its center. As if that explained everything. 

The hell it does. Some dude, even in a dream, was just whisking her about? 

He waved to the two horses. “They left us mounts to ease our journey.” 

She swallowed, trying to work moisture into her parched throat. “How long will it take to get to your…stronghold?” 

“Only part of the morning.” 

“How many hours?” 

“Hours?” 

“Yeah, how long? How many hours?” Was her Star Trek Universal Translator on the fritz already? The word “hours” had come out in English. 

He shook his head and frowned. Then he pointed to the sun just barely visible as a pale glow behind morning clouds. “As long as it takes the sun to travel from there”—he slid his finger just a few inches away—“to there.” 

She pulled in a deep breath. Oookay. 

He marched over to a shaggy brown horse, grabbed the saddle, and swung himself up into it with one swift motion, like she’d seen in old cowboy movies. 

Wow, that was hot. 

She’d ridden her share of horses growing up in Nebraska but had never perfected that technique. She stepped up to her horse and stroked its mane, pulling in the musky scent of the beast, letting him smell her, adjust to her. The animal’s fur was thick and curly, its coarse hairs springing through her stroking fingers. 

Is this real? 

She stared at the imposing but gentle Highlander, and then at the horse she was supposed to ride. If she did as he asked, she’d no longer be “playing along” with her dream. She’d have to face what she hadn’t wanted to admit yet— hopping onto this horse would be accepting this wasn’t a dream. This step, this moment, felt real. Tangible.

Synopsis
Running the family B&B has always been Cassidy Ryan’s dream. But first, she has to save it from neglect.

Closing the doors to the Silver Bell Inn for the holiday seasons seems like the perfect plan to give the B&B some much needed love and care. Or at least it would be if the inn didn’t need a lot more work than Cassidy can handle on her own. She needs help. But asking it is the last thing she wants to do.

Getting stuck in Silver Bell Falls was not part of Beckham Allen’s plans. Neither was this cross-country road trip, for that matter. He was supposed to be focusing on himself and on healing after the loss of his father. But nothing, not even his rescue dog Mazie, seems to be able to break him out of his funk.

Or so he thought until he met the sweet innkeeper who takes him in.

After an awkward start, Cassidy and Beckham discover the perks of being snowed in together. And with Christmas drawing closer, they find they may have just been given the greatest gift of all.

Synopsis
A sexy runningback who needs a nanny for his little boy.  A waitress trying to run from her past. Could she be the one to trust with his most precious possession? Could he be the man who makes her believe in love again? Only if they can take down walls with the same ease that they take off clothes. But when this single dad finds out the truth, their sexy slow ride might come to a crashing halt.

ELLIOT
My priorities are pretty clear. Take care of my five-year-old son and run that damn ball. But I can’t find a nice, qualified nanny to look after him during the season. So when I help out a dazzling blond with her flat tire and she connects with my kid, hiring her to watch Asher seems like a brilliant move. 

It’s purely coincidental that Jessica Randall happens to be smoking hot, tons of fun, and every time she puts Asher to bed, I want her to get in mine. But that’s off the table, because Asher adores her, and she’s the first person to bring my boy out of his shell. 

Sleeping with Jessica would be a huge mistake, and falling in love is an even bigger risk. But that just might be a risk worth taking. 

JESSICA
Elliot Danes is an NFL star dripping with all the wealth and flash I ran away from when I was a teenager. Since then, I’ve lived a simple life, as far away from that world as possible. But a simple life means money problems, and a job as a rich guy’s nanny would solve all of mine. 

His kid’s a doll, the job’s a breeze, and the income is going to help the only person I love. But the sweet and sexy single dad is one big temptation that I can’t resist. So when steamy sex turns into something serious, I’ve got real problems…

I’m falling in love with Elliot, and I’m crazy about his son, but the truth about my past could break both their hearts.

Synopsis
Izzy Kavanagh’s life falls apart when her mother dies. She is forced to move to the US and live with her absent father, who thinks money is the answer to every problem, and her twin brother Ethan, who she has barely spoken to in years.

She hates everything about the move. She hates that she’s forced to finish high school even though she’s already completed it in the UK. She hates that her father is controlling her and threatening to take away her inheritance if she doesn’t do as he says, even though he’s barely there and couldn’t care less about her. She hates that everybody already has an opinion on her based on her family name.

But what she hates above all else is having to see her brother every day in his perfect life where everybody worships him, because he chose this life over her and her mum.

And for that, she’ll never forgive him.

 

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
“Hello, Izzy.”

I look up from my locker and see Benson Montgomery there.

“Hi?” I reply, looking at the guy who randomly asked me out on a date when I’d just moved here. I don’t really have an opinion on Benson either way. He just sort of swans around the school with his preppy crew, looking down on anyone who doesn’t drive a car that costs over twenty thousand dollars and looking around to see who notices him. On principal, I should despise him, but I don’t care enough to do that. If you ask me, he cares too much about how other people perceive him and this image he’s trying to portray in order for me to dislike him too much. Anyone who cares so deeply about what others think about them is seriously lacking in self-confidence.

“I was wondering if you’re planning on attending the Rosemary Gala this weekend?”

Rosemary Gala? Why does this ring a bell?

He must read my blank expression. “Your grandmother organised it? It’s to raise money for the children’s hospital.”

That’s right. “No.”

He looks surprised. “No you’re not going?”

“No, I’m not going.”

“But my mother assured me you were. She spoke to your grandmother last week.”

That would explain all the emails and messages I’ve been getting from her. I haven’t even bothered to read them. “Well my grandmother is delusional if she thinks I’m going to voluntarily spend time with her.”

His jaw falls open. Clearly he wasn’t expecting that. “Well that’s a shame…I was going to offer to escort you as your date…” He lets the sentence linger as though his offer might change my mind.

“Still not going.”

He looks insulted. “You know, Izzy, I’m actually willing to overlook your recent transgressions and take you on a date.”

What the hell? “My recent transgressions?”

“Yes,” he says irritably. “That business with Craig McGarretty—I don’t know how someone like you would even consider going there. And honestly? It sounds like you’re rather lacking in friendships of any kind at the moment, so I would seriously reconsider my offer if I were you.”

What an absolute dick.

“You know what, Benson?” He straightens up and steps slightly closer to me. I think the stupid idiot actually thinks I’m going to agree with him. “Even if every single person on the face of this earth stopped talking to me, I still wouldn’t be caught dead on a date with you. Now leave. Me. Alone.”

He blinks in total astonishment, but I don’t wait to see if he has anything else to say to me because I see Paul in the distance. I slam my locker and hurry to catch up with him.

“Hey,” he says as I fall into step at his side.

“Do you know Benson Montgomery?” I ask.

“Yeah,” he hesitates. “I mean I know who he is. I’ve never spoken to him.”

“Well he’s a weirdo,” I tell him. “Stay away.”

He grins back at me, and we exit through the main hallway and walk down the stairs before heading to the junior parking lot.

“How was your day?” Paul asks.

“Eventful,” I tell him, and he smiles broadly back at me. Something tells me he already knows what went down between me and Evie, and I’m guessing he’ll be pretty pleased about it. He’s incredibly loyal, and Rachel is one of his friends. He won’t like what Evie did.

I open the passenger door to Paul’s car and swing my bag in.

“Um, Izzy?”

I look over at Paul, and he’s looking at something in the distance. I turn my head to see what it is and immediately want to scream. 

What the hell? Apparently today is about to get even more eventful.

“What are they doing here?”

Craig McGarretty is parked up across the street from the student parking lots, not on school property (he’s made sure of that) but wearing his letterman jacket, as are all the buddies he brought along with him.

My head turns back towards the school just as Ethan, Finn, and several of their teammates stroll out of the main entrance. They’re laughing at something and standing around chatting. They haven’t noticed them yet.

“Wait here,” I tell Paul, already striding towards Craig.

Cole Stevens thought he was finally given a second chance in life. With the woman he always loved now by his side, an adopted son who felt like his own since the day he met him, and a baby on the way, Cole could finally see his forever. And then his past showed up on his doorstep, threatening to take it all away.

Now forced to relive painful memories and bring dark secrets to light, Cole begins a downward spiral that leads him back to the place he spent years trying to escape. As the pain of his past collides with the present, he finds himself lost again, fighting for his family’s future. How can he find the way back in time for his forever to be saved?

 

 

 

 

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt:
“Footsteps approach. I feel a light touch, and then hands gently finding their way around my waist. Camryn lays her head on my shoulder and squeezes. Gavin stands up next to me on the other side of the bench and links his arms around my neck.

“Daddy, are you mad at me?” he asks.

I lift my head, pull Gavin onto my lap, and tilt his chin toward my face. “You listen now. I could never be mad at you for talking about the baby. You will be the best big brother anyone could ask for. So, you talk about the baby all you want.” I lift my thumb. “Thumbs up to the best big brother in the world.”

He touches his thumb to mine. “Thumbs up to the best daddy in the world.”

As the pain melts away, Camryn squeezes my waist and kisses my shoulder. “Are you ready to go, best-daddy-in-the-world?”

I gently kiss her lips and assure her, “With you, I’m ready for anything.” The meaning of my words run deeper than the family dinner awaiting us at home.

She stands up from the bench and turns toward me. “Let’s start small then[…]”

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
I dive one hand straight into the hair at the back of her neck and pull her forward, smashing my lips to hers. Her surprised gasp only fuels me on further. I want her to know, no, I need her to know how much she means to me right at this exact moment. I don’t know why, but I feel an urgency to smash some of the walls she has up around her heart, despite my vow to wait for her to open up to me.

My other hand finds her waist, slowly sliding around to her back, grasping her sexy red shirt, pulling her closer to me. My tongue searching for hers as she opens her lips willingly, her hands gripping my shirt at my waist becoming just as eager. I kiss her deeper, a moan escaping her mouth making me ache for much more than just a kiss. We are yet to take it further than that, me wanting her to take the next step when she’s ready, but if our kisses keep heating up more each time our lips lock, I’m going to have to become accustomed to cold showers every time we part.

Against my bodies want, I slow the kiss down, pulling back slightly, nibbling at the side of her mouth as the sound of her rapid breathing almost breaks my restraint. I go to sit back, but her tight grip on my shirt won’t allow me. I place a finger under her chin and lift her gaze from my chest to my eyes. And damn. The heat and want swirling through her eyes has her looking more like sexy as sin, than sweet as sunshine. I can’t move an inch, I can barely take a breath as I let her control what happens next.

Her tongue darts out to moisten her lips and I just about pop the button of my slacks as my control in the groin area, completely gives out. Her hooded eyes look down to my lips, to my eyes then back to my lips. She leans in ever so slowly. I’m not exactly sure what she’s about to do, but the way her chest is rising rapidly, she seems to have no intention of calming the situation down anytime soon.

She lays her lips on the corner of my mouth then pulls back slightly. Her eyes raise to mine under the shadow of her long lashes and with our gaze still locked, she leans in and glides her tongue across the seam of my lips. Holy fuck. Has my girl suddenly came out of her shell? My mind and my body wants me to grab her and throw her down on the back seat and worship every inch of her entire body, but I know this is a big deal for her to be so brazen, so I continue to hold back and let her take her time.

Excerpt
“You know I really did consider tonight a date, right?” I say, as we stand outside waiting for the valet to come and deliver my car for us. 

We skipped dessert and if she were her usual Margot self, she’d have called me out on that. Dragged me down the street to all the famous pastry shops here on Hanover Street and demanded a cannoli or some gelato that we would have shared. She didn’t, and I have to wonder if it’s because she’s desperate to be rid of me. She finally twists to face me, maybe surprised by the sound of my voice after so much silence. Her eyes peek up at me from beneath her lashes. Then she frowns. Too goddamn bad. 

“That night I came to your house and nearly kissed you on your couch, without the provocation of pissing off your ex, was the night everything sort of fell into place for me.”

“I’d appreciate it if you’d shut the fuck up now.”

I grab her by her upper arm, practically lifting her up and off the ground as I drag her over to an alleyway alongside the restaurant. Her lips part, a startled gasp strangles in the back of her throat as I press her body against the rough bricks and slam my mouth down on hers. 

Why? I have no clue. I don’t even know how I got here. There was no thought behind it. No, I have to kiss Margot, or I want to really mess up everything I was just trying to not so cautiously build. It just happened and now I’m here. With my lips on Margot’s. I can taste the earthy sweetness of the wine and the fiery bite of her spicy dinner. Feel the heat of her enraged body against mine as she hate kisses me back.

It’s absolutely perfect. 

She licks my lips, and I don’t waste time over-thinking, or even thinking at all. I dive in as her mouth opens wider, inviting me in to ruin her for good. My tongue sweeps against hers, gliding and pressing and commanding. 

Last time, I only got a tease. A gentle brush of her sweet mouth. Not this time. This time I plunder the depths of her, my tongue dancing with hers. Taking. Coaxing. Fighting. Our mouths move together with such passion you’d think we’ve been doing this together forever. Our lips move, sliding together, perfect counterparts in a play we’ve already mastered. She bites my bottom lip angrily, and I bite hers back, sucking it into my mouth to ease the sting before I follow that move up with her tongue. Her fingers rake through my hair hungrily, angrily, tugging painfully on the ends, and I growl into her, getting the most perfect whimper in return. 

We’re ripping and tearing and pulling and biting.

I’ve never hate kissed a woman. It’s hotter than I expected it would be. Or maybe it’s just her. Maybe it’s her bitterness and desire and brutal rage driving me forward. Matching my own.

My hand sweeps down her back, stopping on the crest just above her ass and I tug her in deeper, harder, into my cock that’s straining against my worn locker room jeans. The move says, ‘Feel that? It’s all for you.’  This shirt she had under her scrub top today is thin and small and gave me the most sinful cast of her full tits every time I looked. And now? Now her pebbled nipples scrape my chest, needy, hungry, begging for my mouth to bite and tug on them until she cries out for me. I growl again, wanting to rip off her shirt and take each one in my mouth in turn. 

This would be the moment to pull back. To stop this.

But I don’t. 

I can’t

I want, no I need, so much more. Whatever I was just thinking about lines and friends and space is gone. I can’t find it anywhere and I’m searching for it. I swear to God, I am. I know this is insane. I know it’s stupid and reckless. I know I’m playing with the most dangerous and explosive fire on the planet. I. Know. This. But I also know a kiss has never made me feel this alive in my entire life. 

Margot’s arms cling to my shoulders as she raises up to her tiptoes for a better angle. It’s not enough. She’s short and I’m tall, so I lift her up, her feet dangling above the pavement and mercifully, she doesn’t wrap her legs around me. Because if she did, I’d likely fuck her right here and now in this alley for all passersby to witness. 

A car horn blares and something about the sound snaps me back to reality with a cold hard slap. Only, that really happened. I set Margot down, my eyes opening wide as I step back. 

“Shit,” she cries out, her eyes flaring and stunned before they narrow in on me. “What the hell was that?” The heat and sting of her smacking my face crawls up my skin. 

“You slapped me?” I’m incredulous. Or really, I’m just feigning incredulous because I don’t have an answer for her. 

“I slapped you.”

“You could have just pushed me away or asked me to stop. You kissed me back.”

She ignores that. “What’s with all the kissing?”

I shake my head. “I don’t know. I told you. I want more. I want you.”
