Can she find the courage to defeat her inner demons, or will her fear and shame consume her?

WHEELER Teaser 1

Writing (Un)Awkward Sex Scenes: A How-To Guide
I’ve been hesitant to give Wheeler to friends and family or even tell my coworkers I wrote a novel. Why? Like my protagonist, Loren Mackenzie, I only let people see what I want them to see; I like to keep my cards close to the vest. I’m a Scorpio, it’s who I am.

But, in very unScorpio fashion, I can’t write or talk about sex without blushing and I stumble over my words. I’m a visual thinker, meaning I can see what I want to describe in my mind clearly, like a photograph. While I don’t have an eidetic memory (I wish!), I can envision what something looks like or how a person moves and fairly accurately describe it. That includes sex.

Jennie Nash wrote a great article for the HuffPost blog called, 7 Rules for Writing Sex Scenes. She says, ‘Sex scenes are very difficult to write because everything else is stripped away and all you’ve got to work with are the characters and the emotions. There’s nowhere to hide. But that’s also what makes them so powerful.’

I couldn’t agree more, Jennie.

Set the Stage for Doing Good Work. There is nowhere to hide, in your head or in the place that you write. I write in my dining room/playroom/office, between 9pm and 2am most nights. It’s often the only time I am completely alone, other than my cats. My spouse and child are asleep and I can sit quietly and focus, listening to my Pandora stations. Music can inspire, especially sappy love songs. I even have a Spotify playlist aptly named: Graham’s Mixtape.

Focus on Dialogue. Do other people talk during sex? Uh, well, I don’t, really. (Is it hot in here?) With Loren and Graham’s first time, I wrote in a little more nervous excitement for her. For Graham, he has a sensuality to him already, and perhaps I wrote him a little over-the-top romantic. But that’s okay; it works for the character’s type. He’s not your typical leading man. While he’s tall, he doesn’t have the big muscles of Chris Evans or Chris Pratt. Think Colin Firth+David Tennant+Tom Hiddleston+Patrick Stewart = Graham Atherton.

Which leads to Characters Stay in Character and Watch the Tone. Graham is an actor and actors emote. He has a love of Shakespeare and uses the bard’s words to woo the lovely Loren. Nobody would have guessed – least of all those closest to her (and possibly herself) – that she was such a romantic. Same with speaking French. Somehow it works for them and sets the tone for the characters throughout the story.

Consider the difference between the internal and external action. I’ll be honest, I thought about scenes I’ve seen in films or read in books (with some of my own experiences) and envisioned every single action and reaction. I thought I had created some viable scenes until one of my Alpha readers, Debbie, said: “The build-up was great, loved that, but then you only come at me with a sentence and expect to finish it off? I’d be disappointed.”

After I got up off the floor from laughing, I began anew with more blushing and ear burning as I rewrote every single sex scene in my novel. There aren’t many, mind you, but heaven forbid they do it the same way twice. I had to come up with different situations and positions. Should they have oral? OMG Do I really have to write that? HOW do I write that? (Shudder)

Which leads to Remember, they’re just words. I’m new to this writing thing, and I find it very hard to separate myself from the feels and step out of the scene. I get snappy when interrupted because I am left feeling raw and exposed. It sucks even more because I know I’m reacting that way but I can’t stop it.

My intention has always been to write complex characters and true-to-life situations as best I could. Real people laugh and cry, flirt and kiss, yell and argue, dance and sing. They put themselves through enormous amounts of stress. They love and they have sex. There’s no way to get around it.

Which brings me to Jennie’s last comment: Prepare for the inevitable confrontation. At some point, someone will ask about what I wrote. Can I talk about sex without wanting to run and hide? My cheeks will be bright pink and I might not be able to look the person in the eye ever again.

Author Sara Butler Zalesky

About the Author
Sara was born in the wee hours of a November night in New York City. When her family moved to a small borough in northwestern New Jersey, she had little choice but to move as well. Self-sufficiency is a tough thing for a toddler.

The dichotomy of being the middle child of three, but the only girl, was difficult, as typically no one really pays attention to a middle child. Mostly, Sara spent her time creating fanciful stories in her head when she should have been focused on other things, an issue that continues to this day.

Most of these stories have never been shared, let alone completed. This all changed in the spring of 2015, when Sara was encouraged by a friend to expand upon a short story she had accidentally emailed to him. The result is ‘Wheeler’, a romantic, women’s fiction/sport novel, which combines the author’s romantic inclinations and her passion for cycling.

Sara currently resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, with her loving husband and their son. She is a paralegal for a boutique law firm in Chester County, Pa, an avid road cyclist and indoor cycling instructor at a national chain.

I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire.

Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have.

Synopsis
After finding her boyfriend cheating, Kate decides she’s had it with men. So the next night at her catering job she pretends not to be interested when Gavin, a hot guy with a great smile who attends the very exclusive Moorhurst College, asks her out. Unable to resist his charm, she agrees to have dinner with him.

On their first date, Kate’s convinced Gavin’s too good to be true. Funny, sweet, smart, and easy to talk to, he’s nothing like the losers she’s dated in the past. But maybe her luck has changed. Maybe Gavin’s the guy she’s been waiting for.

As their relationship grows, Gavin proves he really is the guy Kate’s always wanted but didn’t think existed. She’s even thinking about a future with him. But those plans come to an abrupt halt when Kate sees something she shouldn’t. Something dark and disturbing. Something that could get her killed if she ever told anyone.

Kate’s desperate to tell Gavin her secret but can’t. Even if she did, he’d never believe her. Still, she can’t keep something this big from Gavin, especially when he’s involved in it. Will she risk her life and tell him the truth? Or risk their relationship and keep this secret from the man she loves?

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #2
“Take my hands,” Gavin says as I cling to the edge of the boat.

I grab his hands and he pulls me back in. How he managed to not fall in himself, I don’t know.

“You okay?” he asks.

“Yeah.” I laugh. “I’m fine. Just soaking wet. I shouldn’t have moved like that. You warned me about the boat tipping.”

“I should’ve caught you. I tried, but it happened so fast.”

I’m still laughing. For some reason I’m finding this funny, maybe because I always laugh when I watch those videos online of people falling out of boats, and now I’ve done it myself.

Gavin’s smiling at me.

“What?” I ask. “Do I have lake junk in my hair?”

“No.”

“Then what is it?”

“I’m just amazed you’re not mad.”

“Why would I be mad?”

“Because you fell in a lake off a boat I made you go on.”

“It wasn’t your fault. I moved too fast and rocked the boat.”

“Most girls would be pissed. But instead, you’re laughing.”

“Because it’s funny.” I laugh. “Actually it’s hilarious. We’re making out, all hot and heavy and then—”

He interrupts me with a kiss, then says, “You’re fuckin’ awesome, you know that?”

 “Um, okay. Although I don’t know what’s so awesome about falling in a lake.”

“The awesome part is how you reacted. You didn’t scream at me. Throw a tantrum. Demand I buy you a new outfit, which I will by the way. Whatever you want.”

“I don’t need a new outfit. I’ll just wash this. It’ll be fine.”

“Okay, you need to stop.” He slides the wet hair off my face. “You keep going, I might just fall in love with you.”

I roll my eyes. “Because I can wash my clothes? That’s a little extreme.”

“Then can I say you’re the coolest girl I’ve ever met?”

I smile. “You can say that.”

He kisses me. “So before you went overboard, what exactly were you planning to do?”

“Have my way with you.” I bite my lip.

“What happened to waiting?”

“Why wait? What if there’s no tomorrow?”

“Shit, that’s deep,” he says all serious, but he’s grinning. “Never had anyone use philosophical reasoning to justify sex.” His lips brush over mine. “But I like it. You’re very wise, Ms. Norris.”

“Except when it comes to knowing how to keep myself in a boat.”

A gust of wind blows over my wet skin and I shiver.

“We need to get you dried off.” Gavin lets me go and grabs the oar. He sinks it into the water and starts furiously rowing back to shore.

“Gavin, I’m fine. You don’t have to go so fast.”

“You’re freezing. You need to get in dry clothes.”

When we reach the dock, he helps me from the boat and we go in the cabin. Gavin starts searching for a towel but the only thing he can find is a roll of paper towels.

He hands them to me. “Sorry. Looks like this is all we have.”

“That’ll work.” I tear off a few sheets and start wiping down my legs. Then I turn away from Gavin and take off my wet clothes.

“I’ll go wait outside,” I hear him say from behind me. I hear the door squeak open.

“Wait. Don’t leave. I don’t want to be alone in here.”

“Why not?”

“In case something starts crawling on me. Spiders. A snake. A raccoon.”

He laughs. “If a raccoon were in here, we’d know.” He turns around and freezes when he sees me. I’m only wearing panties, nothing else. I should probably cover up but I like him looking at me like this. Looking like he wants me but is trying so hard to resist.

I pretend not to notice and continue drying off.

“You’re really testing my willpower here, Kate,” he says, his eyes taking me in.

“You seem to be doing okay,” I tease.

“Not really,” he says, glancing down at his crotch, his jeans straining to contain him.

I smile. “What are you saying?”

“I’m saying we need to get out of here before something happens. My first time with you isn’t going to be in some shitty cabin that smells like rotting fish.”

Laughing, I grab more paper towels. “Good point.”

“Here.” He reaches up and yanks his t-shirt off and brings it to me. “Put this on.”

My eyes get stuck on his chest. Just like I thought, he’s all lean muscle. When I touched him I could feel it. I just couldn’t see it. And now that I can, I pause a moment to take it in.

“Kate?”

“Yeah.” I take the shirt from him and slide it on. It’s soft, and warm from his body, covered with the light scent of his cologne. “Thanks. That’s much better.”

He grins. “I liked you the other way, but this will keep you warm.”

Synopsis
You met them in DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME. Now prepare to fall in love with THE YOUNGERS, a brand-new series from Iris Morland, full of sexy men, passionate women, and the love stories you can’t get enough of.

After witnessing his parents’ doomed love affair, serial playboy Ash Younger decided long ago that love was not meant for him. With his charm and good looks, he’s never lacked for beautiful women. He may push numbers as an accountant by day, but by night, he’s only interested in having a woman in his bed.

Yet the night he encounters a mysterious—and gorgeous—widow who doesn’t immediately fall under his seductive spell, Ash realizes he wants her more than he’s ever wanted another woman.

Following the loss of her husband two years ago, Violet Fielding wants to focus on two things: her jewelry business and beginning her life anew in the small town of Fair Haven, Washington. She doesn’t have time for men or romance, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a man who’s a well-known playboy and younger than her.

Violet already found the love of her life in her husband, and after his death, she knew she could never love anyone again.

But when Ash kisses her, all of her plans and promises are turned upside down. A passion stronger than either Ash or Violet could imagine envelops them both one night—and that night changes everything.

As old heartbreaks threaten to tear the couple apart, both must find the courage to see that, of all things, love is worth a second chance..

THEN CAME YOU Teaser 3

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #1
Ash lowered his voice, wanting to sound inviting. Tempting. “Come on. I want to show you something.”

Her blond eyebrows shot straight to her hairline. “Is that a euphemism?”

So much for tempting her. “No, it’s not.”

At this point, they’d moved toward the opening of an alleyway that afforded them some measure of privacy. The streetlights were just bright enough that Ash could make out Violet’s expression somewhat, but she was still rendered rather shadowy. The mystery of her only intrigued him more. Who was she, really? And why did he want to know so badly?

“When’s the last time you let yourself have any fun?” he asked.

His voice was a murmur, and he leaned down so he was almost touching her ear. To his delight, she was tall enough that he didn’t have to lean far. He was used to getting a crick in his neck when kissing women. The thought of avoiding that small annoyance only added fuel to the fire of his desire for her.

“I have fun all the time,” Violet countered.

“Name an example within the last week.”

“I played dominoes with my mother.” She said it with such verve that God almighty, he wanted to kiss her right then and there just so she could add some real fun to that pathetic list.

“No, I mean something fun with a person your age.” He moved closer until her soft hair tickled his cheek. “When’s the last time you let yourself have fun without worrying about the consequences?”

“I’m too old to do things like that.”

Ash laughed softly. “You act like you already have one foot in the grave, when in fact you’re a gorgeous, intelligent, young woman. Damn shame, in my opinion.”

Violet huffed. “I didn’t ask for your opinion about my life. And what about you? What kind of a guy picks up a woman during his niece’s birthday party?”

“A man who knows what he wants.”

“Oh my God, you’re so, so—” She growled in frustration. “Annoying. Has anyone ever told you how annoying you are?”

He couldn’t stop smiling; his face hurt from it. The rarity of a woman like Violet, who loved to banter and who didn’t simper, was refreshing.

Arousing.

“I’m never annoying to anyone,” he said. “Now, you know what we’re going to go do?”

“Work on our taxes?” She said it almost hopefully.

He touched the tip of her nose. “We’re going to go have some fun and not worry about anyone else.”

She hesitated: he could feel it in the way her body tensed. “I’m not going to sleep with you,” she said in an anxious rush. “I don’t know you, it’s too soon—”

He pressed her lips together with his fingers, effectively cutting her off. “I’m not talking about sex.” At least not yet. “I’m talking good, clean, wholesome fun.”

She moved his hand away from her mouth. “With you?”

“Yes, me.” Ash stepped away and held out his hand. “Do you trust me, Violet?”

She didn’t move for a long moment. Right then, all he wanted was for her to say yes. Not just for his own enjoyment, but for hers, too.

It felt like an eternity before she said, “Yes, I trust you,” and she placed her hand in his.

THEN CAME YOU Teaser 5

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
They talked into the night, even when the woman from earlier came by to say something to Ash. Looking more closely at her, Violet realized that she must be one of his siblings. They both had the same eyes and hair color, and when the woman smiled, Violet saw Ash in that smile. It was almost eerie.

“We’re all heading out,” the woman said. “You coming?”

“No, I’m staying here for now.”

The woman glanced at Violet, glanced back at Ash, then shrugged. Addressing Violet now, she said, “Make sure he behaves himself.”

Ash rolled his eyes at her departure. “My older sister Thea. She’s a pain in the ass.”

“I just have one older sister. You’re lucky to come from such a large family.”

“That’s one way to put it,” he said wryly.

As the bar quieted somewhat, Ash moved closer to her, like a glacier slowly sliding downhill. And to Violet’s dismay, she didn’t want him to move away. He smelled so good—like wood smoke and spice—and his muscles bulged with each small movement. When he licked his lips after finishing his drink, her heart almost burst from her chest.

Danger, danger. Get out of here or you’ll do something stupid. Like kiss him.

“What time is it? Oh, I need to get home. I need to feed my—” She racked her brain for an animal to feed and finally landed on, “Clown fish. My clown fish.” Clown fish, seriously?

“Your clown fish. He needs to be fed at one sixteen a.m.?” Ash’s lips twitched.

“Yes, he’s a very particular fish. I got him when he was a baby fish and he’s very important to me.”

Violet paid for her drinks—not looking at Ash when she did it—returned her jewelry to her purse and practically sprinted out of the bar.

Ash watched as Violet jogged down the sidewalk away from him. What the hell had he said or done to freak her out like that? He knew very well she didn’t have to go feed a clown fish or whatever it was.

If she were simply uninterested in him, he’d let her be. But he’d seen the interest in her eyes, the way her pupils had dilated, the way she’d crossed her legs toward him. She’d played with her hair, she’d licked her lips. She’d had so many obvious tells that had screamed KISS ME, TAKE ME, that he’d had to restrain himself from kissing her right then and there in the bar.

“Violet, wait up,” he said as he caught up to her. “Hey, talk to me.” He touched her arm, and she stopped walking but didn’t turn to look at him. “Look, if I said something that offended you, I apologize. Let me make it up to you.”

She inhaled deeply before letting out a deep sigh. Her breath puffed white into the cold air. “You didn’t do anything. Really.” She finally looked at him. “Am I allowed to say ‘it isn’t you, it’s me’?”

“That’s almost as big of a lie as your fish.”

She gasped, then laughed. “Excuse you, Marty the fish is very real and very important to me.”

“Marty? Now I really know you’re lying.”

 —————————————————————————-

VERONA BLOOD Teaser 6

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
Avery

I need somewhere to wipe my palms; but the puffy skirt of my designer gown doesn’t seem appropriate.

“Avery Capulet, everyone!”

Five hundred pairs of eyes look my way as I sashay down the middle of the glass-ceilinged ballroom my father has decked out with nauseating arrays of flowers, of twinkling fairy lights and enough champagne to fill the San Francisco Bay that shimmers beyond the heights of our palatial hotel.

Really, that’s what it’s called: The Palatial Hotel. Because it’s like a damn palace built on the edge of the financial district, full of Austrian crystal chandeliers and Calacatta marble floors.

It’s unseasonably hot in San Francisco this year, especially since we’re in the middle of a heat wave. People in Southern California would probably laugh at us as they roast through their regular hundred-plus summer days, but in the North we’re a little more used to clouds and fog. 

I could blame my sweaty palms on the heat wave, but it’s crisp and cold inside the hotel’s grand glass enclosure. Cold like a refrigerator. Like a morgue.

You’re daydreaming again, Avery.

I take a deep breath and focus on my father’s booming voice, forgetting about the crowd of family and my father’s friends. I feel like a head of cattle being marched through a market to fetch the highest bidder. Because although this is merely my twenty-fifth birthday and not an auction, almost everybody is here for one reason.

Money.

My money.

The money that, according to the antiquated rules of our family’s trust, cannot be accessed by women heirs until they marry.

Which is complete fucking bullshit. We’re living in the age of equality, yet, according to the Capulet decree, all women born bearing the Capulet name would be penniless unless they marry a man of their father’s choosing.

Arranged marriage in the twenty-first century? In America?

I almost wish somebody in the crowd would shoot me, put me out of my misery.  

“Think of all that money,” I hear somebody whisper as I walk through the middle of a parted crowd. I look in the direction of the voice, finding a guilty face staring straight back at me. Jacob Goldstein. Preppy guy, Ivy League, all that crap that people spend their lives and their fortunes making sure they’ve got. I went to high school with Jacob, the most exclusive prep school on the West Coast of the United States. He’s been trying to get into my pants since his voice broke and I grew out of my sports bra. Sorry, buddy, you were never on my shortlist.

Yes, I am the only child of the most powerful man in California. Daddy has enough collective money and assets to rival anyone on the Forbes rich list, but he prefers to be discreet with his fortune. If for no other reason than the fact that his wealth isn’t entirely honest. The Capulet family is the Rothschild family of the criminal underworld. Instead of owning and controlling banks, we own and control other things. Diamonds. Guns. Drugs. People. The crisp Benjamins in our vaults might be legal tender, but they likely weren’t obtained through legal channels.

And yes, we own hotels. Lots and lots of hotels. After all, you have to launder the money somewhere, right?

My family has so much money, you could never spend it all. It’s not in any one account, or controlled by any one person, but we have enough money to burn piles of the stuff as tall as this building, and not miss it at all.

Many of the men eyeing me off in the crowd find that staggering wealth extremely attractive.

Me, I learned a long time ago that money doesn’t mean much. Beyond granting you food, and shelter, and warmth, money doesn’t do much at all. It doesn’t hold you at night when your father is still working, always working. It doesn’t help you trust anybody who might be a romantic possibility.

Money doesn’t bring your mother back from the dead after she dies giving birth to your stillborn brother when you’re twelve years old. It doesn’t help you understand why your older sister drowned in your backyard when she was about to be married off, leaving you to inherit the burden of everything she was better equipped to handle than you will ever be.

Money: I’m about to have more of it than any of these greedy fucks could imagine.

And I don’t want it.

Not a nickel. Not a penny. Not a dirty dollar bill.

But for my father, I will take it. I will assume the throne of the Capulet family. It’s my destiny, whether I want it or not.

Synopsis
You met them in DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME. Now prepare to fall in love with THE YOUNGERS, a brand-new series from Iris Morland, full of sexy men, passionate women, and the love stories you can’t get enough of.

After witnessing his parents’ doomed love affair, serial playboy Ash Younger decided long ago that love was not meant for him. With his charm and good looks, he’s never lacked for beautiful women. He may push numbers as an accountant by day, but by night, he’s only interested in having a woman in his bed.

Yet the night he encounters a mysterious—and gorgeous—widow who doesn’t immediately fall under his seductive spell, Ash realizes he wants her more than he’s ever wanted another woman.

Following the loss of her husband two years ago, Violet Fielding wants to focus on two things: her jewelry business and beginning her life anew in the small town of Fair Haven, Washington. She doesn’t have time for men or romance, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a man who’s a well-known playboy and younger than her.

Violet already found the love of her life in her husband, and after his death, she knew she could never love anyone again.

But when Ash kisses her, all of her plans and promises are turned upside down. A passion stronger than either Ash or Violet could imagine envelops them both one night—and that night changes everything.

As old heartbreaks threaten to tear the couple apart, both must find the courage to see that, of all things, love is worth a second chance..

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
They talked into the night, even when the woman from earlier came by to say something to Ash. Looking more closely at her, Violet realized that she must be one of his siblings. They both had the same eyes and hair color, and when the woman smiled, Violet saw Ash in that smile. It was almost eerie.

“We’re all heading out,” the woman said. “You coming?”

“No, I’m staying here for now.”

The woman glanced at Violet, glanced back at Ash, then shrugged. Addressing Violet now, she said, “Make sure he behaves himself.”

Ash rolled his eyes at her departure. “My older sister Thea. She’s a pain in the ass.”

“I just have one older sister. You’re lucky to come from such a large family.”

“That’s one way to put it,” he said wryly.

As the bar quieted somewhat, Ash moved closer to her, like a glacier slowly sliding downhill. And to Violet’s dismay, she didn’t want him to move away. He smelled so good—like wood smoke and spice—and his muscles bulged with each small movement. When he licked his lips after finishing his drink, her heart almost burst from her chest.

Danger, danger. Get out of here or you’ll do something stupid. Like kiss him.

“What time is it? Oh, I need to get home. I need to feed my—” She racked her brain for an animal to feed and finally landed on, “Clown fish. My clown fish.” Clown fish, seriously?

“Your clown fish. He needs to be fed at one sixteen a.m.?” Ash’s lips twitched.

“Yes, he’s a very particular fish. I got him when he was a baby fish and he’s very important to me.”

Violet paid for her drinks—not looking at Ash when she did it—returned her jewelry to her purse and practically sprinted out of the bar.

~

Ash watched as Violet jogged down the sidewalk away from him. What the hell had he said or done to freak her out like that? He knew very well she didn’t have to go feed a clown fish or whatever it was.

If she were simply uninterested in him, he’d let her be. But he’d seen the interest in her eyes, the way her pupils had dilated, the way she’d crossed her legs toward him. She’d played with her hair, she’d licked her lips. She’d had so many obvious tells that had screamed KISS ME, TAKE ME, that he’d had to restrain himself from kissing her right then and there in the bar.

“Violet, wait up,” he said as he caught up to her. “Hey, talk to me.” He touched her arm, and she stopped walking but didn’t turn to look at him. “Look, if I said something that offended you, I apologize. Let me make it up to you.”

She inhaled deeply before letting out a deep sigh. Her breath puffed white into the cold air. “You didn’t do anything. Really.” She finally looked at him. “Am I allowed to say ‘it isn’t you, it’s me’?”

“That’s almost as big of a lie as your fish.”

She gasped, then laughed. “Excuse you, Marty the fish is very real and very important to me.”

“Marty? Now I really know you’re lying.”

Lauren patted my hand. Yeah. That would help.

SAVING GRACE Teaser 1

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt #4
Grace takes a seat directly across from me, revving up my annoyance level to a ten.

When her beautiful face and demure laughter, Nate’s ribbing, Mama’s constant oohing, and Rachel’s aahing over her become unbearable, I make my exit. Not even Mama Ada’s homemade key lime pie could make me stay. I kiss Mama good-bye and give a one-fingered salute to everyone while purposely avoiding a certain someone’s haunting greens.

Fishing for my cell in my pocket, I throw Tanya a quick text that I’m coming over. It only takes her a few seconds to respond back with a very eager,

I’M WAITING!

I rev my car and focus on Tanya’s naked body, excited to pound into her from here to kingdom come.

She’s warm.

Inviting.

Committed to giving me the pleasure I seek.

As soon as I turn the ignition off, my dick becomes even harder, knowing heaven is just a few steps away. I quickly make my way to her front door, and like magic, it opens, revealing Tanya’s naked body. Her light-brown hair is pulled back, away from her face, and nestled messily on top of her head. She walks sexily backward while I slam the door shut with my foot.

She glances sideways, toward the dining area, while I stalk her, unzipping my pants.

She’s hungry for me; I can see it in her eyes. Me? I’m hungry to cum, to expel the negative thoughts plaguing my brain.

I lean in and spear her mouth with my tongue.

I don’t kiss her again or whisper sweet nothings in her ears. Instead, I grip her hips hard, holding her steady. Her eyes search mine for something I don’t give a rat’s ass to figure out. I slam into her, harder than the last, driving into her to gain what I want.

What I think I deserve to have.

Her warm body writhes in ecstasy as her moans of pleasure only serve as fuel for me to vigorously keep at it. I give her body a good pounding, relishing in that tingling sensation that takes my mind off everything that hurts. I depend on these few seconds of peace that only the body of a woman could ever give me.

Synopsis
For the woman who’s his perfect match, he’s willing to break the rules…

The moment Brand Berry meets beautiful, driven Sahara Silver, the connection between them is electric. It’s also something he can’t pursue. Sahara wants him, sure—to join Body Armor, where his MMA skills, size, and cocky attitude make him perfect for her elite crew of bodyguards. For Sahara, the agency always comes first, and Brand needs more. Yet when she’s kidnapped by men searching for her missing brother, he doesn’t hesitate.

Somewhere along the way, flirting with Brand for the sake of business turned very personal. Despite his refusal to join Body Armor, it’s Brand who steps up when she needs him most. Now there’s no more time for games, and no point denying the hunger they both feel. They’ll escape together or not at all. But if they survive, can Sahara finally surrender control to claim this blazing passion?

Before She Can Put the Past Away…There’s Hell to Pay.

Hannah Taylor—the bright, bubbly publicity director of Silicon Valley’s celebrated startup Paragon Laboratories—was kidnapped and beaten. Her bodyguard-boyfriend, Wesley Eden, was shot right in front of her. The responsible party? None other than Chinese mogul Li Na Zhao, who’ll stop at nothing to steal Paragon’s blockbuster biotechnology from Hannah’s CEO sister Lauren.

Now, Wesley and Hannah are back home and on the mend. Their relationship is tested as Wesley struggles to recover, and Hannah, fueled by the injustice of Li Na’s actions, is out for retribution while refusing to acknowledge the PTSD she’s grappling with from her kidnapping. Convinced that Hannah is hiding the truth about her captivity, Wes is determined to find out what really happened while Li Na had Hannah.

Out to protect her loved ones, Hannah is hell-bent on finally taking Li Na down, especially after she discovers that Paragon isn’t the only Silicon Valley company in Li Na’s crosshairs. Naturally, the ethically challenged Chinese CEO likes her position on top and refuses to give up without a fight…

But Li Na hasn’t grappled with Hannah Taylor when she’s bent on revenge.

Synopsis
You met them in DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME. Now prepare to fall in love with THE YOUNGERS, a brand-new series from Iris Morland, full of sexy men, passionate women, and the love stories you can’t get enough of.

After witnessing his parents’ doomed love affair, serial playboy Ash Younger decided long ago that love was not meant for him. With his charm and good looks, he’s never lacked for beautiful women. He may push numbers as an accountant by day, but by night, he’s only interested in having a woman in his bed.

Yet the night he encounters a mysterious—and gorgeous—widow who doesn’t immediately fall under his seductive spell, Ash realizes he wants her more than he’s ever wanted another woman.

Following the loss of her husband two years ago, Violet Fielding wants to focus on two things: her jewelry business and beginning her life anew in the small town of Fair Haven, Washington. She doesn’t have time for men or romance, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a man who’s a well-known playboy and younger than her.

Violet already found the love of her life in her husband, and after his death, she knew she could never love anyone again.

But when Ash kisses her, all of her plans and promises are turned upside down. A passion stronger than either Ash or Violet could imagine envelops them both one night—and that night changes everything.

As old heartbreaks threaten to tear the couple apart, both must find the courage to see that, of all things, love is worth a second chance..
