Synopsis
He’s a gangster going straight. She’s a waitress going bankrupt. Will their gamble on a marriage of convenience pay off in true love?  

Alex Wilde desperately wants to be free of the family’s mob business. But when his infamous father is murdered, the family attorney makes a suggestion he can’t ignore: find a bride before the funeral or they’ll force a wedding with a nice Russian gangster girl. When he meets a feisty cocktail waitress, he thinks he’s found his way out.  

Faye Tandy is desperately in debt and hard-pressed to find help. Alex’s offer of a phony marriage for a ton of cash couldn’t come at a better time and she’s happy to help him exit the criminal world. The fact that he’s tall, dark, and handsome is an attractive bonus. But when she discovers the Russians have a contract out on her head, she wonders if divorced and bankrupt would be a better choice than rich and dead…  

As Faye’s fake feelings for Alex turn real, she’s terrified her trip to the altar might be her last. Will Alex and Faye’s throw of the dice succeed or will they lose the lawless game of love?

Excerpt
“Is there anything else I can get you ladies right now?”

“A stripper,” said the tall blonde in the corner. I knew she was tall because even seated, her head was six inches above everyone else.

“There are a lot of all male reviews on the strip,” I offered the women sitting around the half-moon booth. They were all pretty in a silicone, filler kind of way. I wondered how many days they’d gone without food to prepare for this outing. “The Rio has Chippendales, and there’s the Magic Mike Live show.”

One woman’s eyes focused past me. “I’ll take him, on this table, in nothing but a G-string.”

I turned around to see the most magnificent specimen of male sexuality. He’d be my type if I hadn’t sworn off men. I’d reconsider my position if I had a chance with someone like him. Not that I played for the other team. I’d leave that pool of eligibles for my roommate, Trish.

She wasn’t particular about gender; she was particular about orgasms. She liked them with regularity and preferred a variety of flavors, shapes, sizes, and colors. One thing about Trish was, she was never lonely or left unsatisfied. Of that, I was envious.

I tossed the extra napkins from my tray onto the table to catch their drool. “Can’t help you there, but I can help him.” I turned and walked toward Mr. Tall, Dark and Desirable. He seemed to debate between the corner booth opposite Cinderella and her seven stepsisters and a table in the center of the room.

He looked at his watch and frowned before he decided on the booth in the far corner.

“Hello,” I called out as he took a seat. His eyes flashed to me. They were nothing short of stunning. Most people would say they were brown, but I had a thing for eyes the color of a good scotch, and his were a Glenfiddich 18. “Can I get you something?” I leaned over the table, letting the fringe of my dress skate across the gray granite surface.

His eyes narrowed as he looked around the room. “I’m waiting for a man.”

The good ones were taken. “Figures.” I looked over my shoulder. “So are they. Well, at least seven of them. The one in the center is walking down the aisle of doom in a few days.”

He let out a low, rumbling laugh. “Not a fan of marriage?”

I shrugged. “I can’t say. I’ve never been married, but with a fifty percent failure rate, it doesn’t sound like a smart bet. Until marriage can deliver a good return on investment and quality benefits, I’m not applying for the job.”

The truth was, I’d seen enough men and bad marriages to last me a lifetime. Mom was on number seven. Gail Tandy was much like my roommate, Trish. She liked variety, but she was old-fashioned and practical. She marched each of her husbands to the one-hour chapel to make it legal, but she never changed her last name. No sense in changing it to something not likely to last.

I’d been to every one of those seven weddings, and not one of them was to my father. He was the one who got away, or rather ran away and stayed away. Michael Holt didn’t have time for wives or children. He couldn’t marry a woman when he was married to his job. Though my father’s last name was Holt, I was legally a Tandy.

“Anything to drink while you’re waiting for Mr. Right?”

His head went on full tilt. “I’m not waiting for Mr. Right. I’m waiting for my attorney. We’re meeting here.” He glanced at his watch, then back at me.

A blush of embarrassment heated my cheeks. I’d never been good at reading people or situations. Always a day late and a dollar short. It’s why I wore a flapper costume and peddled watered down drinks in a speakeasy bar.

Over my shoulder, the bridal party stared this way. “The tall one in the corner said she’d like to meet you.”

“Did she?” He raised a brow of interest and peeked around me. He shook his head. “No, thanks. Not my type.”

Something about that made me smile. “What’s your type?” I knew most men had one, but I wondered what his type would be like. Tall? Rail thin? Cheap to feed?

He licked his lips and grinned a Hollywood-worthy smile. “They have to be female.” He looked at the group once more. “I don’t do high maintenance. I don’t do forever. I don’t do soon-to-be brides. My women are here tonight and gone tomorrow.”

Figures. Then again, I couldn’t fault him. Relationships were easier if the expectations were low or nonexistent. At least with a man like him, a girl knew what she was getting—most likely a night to remember. That was something I hadn’t experienced in a long time, but it was on my to-do list just after a hundred more imperative things, like paying rent.

“It’s important to know what you like. Anything to drink while you’re waiting on your man?” I gave him a sly smile and a wink.

“How about a coffee?”

“I’ll make you a fresh pot. If you’re waiting for an attorney, do you want a shot of something added? Attorneys are worse than husbands and wives. Or so I hear.”

He looked at my name tag. “I like you, Faye. You’re funny.” He pulled his phone out of his pocket and set it on the table. “No whiskey. Just coffee.”

“Suit yourself.” A shrug lifted my shoulders. “You got a name?”

He looked down at his chest like his name was written there. “My name is Alessio, but everyone calls me Alex.”

Title:
SUIT
Series: 44 Chapters #4
Author:
BB Easton
Release Date: October 18, 2018
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her bestselling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy standalone. SUIT is Ken’s book—the hilarious, heartwarming tale of how BB finally got over her bad boy phase and found happily ever after with…gasp…a guy in a tie.

“Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.” It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, “Good Guys Need Not Apply.”

Which is exactly why I had to friendzone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.

But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like, why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful? The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.

In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys…

A good challenge.

*SUIT is Book 4 in the 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN spin-off series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

THE FIGHTER OF ALDEA by Kira Weston

About the Book
Title: THE FIGHTER OF ALDEA
Author: Kira Weston
Release Date: October 15, 2018
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Links: Goodreads | Amazon

Synopsis
t’s the year 2216, and ever since Lydia Humsworth was little, she’s heard stories about electricity that used to light up skylines and planes that soared through the sky like birds. There were also stories about The Shift, which plunged the world into darkness nearly two hundred years ago and gave some people magical abilities. These people came to call themselves sorcerers.

Now, in the small village of Aldea, sixteen-year-old Lydia is training to be a Fighter in hopes of one day protecting her village. Her best friend, Daniel, spends his days working long hard hours on the farm. Humans and sorcerers have always seemed to coincide peacefully, but when Leonardo Kinch–a deranged sorcerer who blames humans for the death of his family–starts a war against humans, nothing is as they believed.

When war rages across the country, Lydia and Daniel must do everything they can to stop the war and stay alive, or risk the human race falling into extinction.

THE FIGHTER OF ALDEA Teaser 1

 —————————————————————————-

Lydia
I jump up and before I’m even back on the ground, I swing out at his face. I nearly get a tap, but Joshua manages to duck away. He groans angrily and jabs at my stomach. I suck it in and jump backward, but I’m closer to the edge than I’d thought and my back slams into the rope.

Joshua smirks. He knows he’s got the upper-hand.

He goes for my stomach again, but I slip out of the way, dive into a roll that takes me behind him, and spin around to face him.

He whirls around and slices his stick down toward the top of my head. I grab my stick with both hands and hold it above me. Block.

I realize he’s holding his vertically like a sword, as opposed to holding it horizontally above his head. Bad form. I push my stick against his, forcing it toward his body. A look of confusion crosses Joshua’s face. Then I give his stick a good shove with my own, thrusting him backward enough that he loses his balance and falls down onto the mat, flat on his back.

While he’s down, I jab my stick toward his neck and tap his throat. The fight is over.

Joshua looks up at me with wide eyes, probably realizing what the result of a full force hit like that would be, and I suddenly become very aware of the fact that I’m glaring down at him. Had I wanted to fight again for revenge? What if I had lost my cool? Then I wouldn’t have been any better than he was.

Except, I didn’t hit him, whether a part of me wanted to or not. And I certainly didn’t cheat. That’s not who I am, or ever want to be.

Finally, the blood from my scratches runs all the way down my face, and just as a single drop of blood falls onto the mat, I hear the whistle.

“Winner! Lydia Humsworth!”

The crowd cheers. I’m brought back to reality. During the fight, it was as if everything and everyone had melted away and become silent. Nothing existed but me, my opponent, and the ring. I look up at the crowd who’s roaring for me. Daniel, Lucas, and my mom are cheering louder than anyone else. It hits me: I won.

I put my stick down and look up at the audience, letting my victory sink in before turning back to help Joshua up. I hold out my hand, but he shoves it away and gets up on his own.

We bow. He looks mad again. So many remarks run through my head. I told you so. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Apologies for deflating your ego… But I leave it alone. He’s probably punishing himself enough.

Instead, I bow my head and say, “Good fight, Joshua.”

He seems a little surprised at my humility, but he doesn’t return it. All he does is sneer and bow his head in return. Then we separate to have quick words with our instructors before the final winners are announced.

“Well done, Lydia,” Mr. Neil tells me, handing me a towel to wipe my face with. “You had the upper hand for most of the fight and you did some quick thinking with that final move. It was different, unexpected, and intelligent.”

“Thank you, sir,” I say politely. I’m surprised by his kind words, but I can also tell that he’s holding something back. I sigh. “What is it?”

He shifts his eyes to the side, then looks back at me. “You’re still too slow.” I purse my lips. Of course…

Excerpt #2
“What’s on your mind, baby?” Wes asks me as I towel off my body. My skin is still bright pink from the hot water of my shower.

“It was just a long day.”

“I thought it was a good day?” he asks me as he wraps his arms around me pulling me in close as he rests his chin on top of my head. I love when he does this. I’m fairly tall for a woman so the fact that he is tall enough to make me feel small and delicate is kind of nice.

“It was,” I begin to explain. “We found out Anna prepaid for all of the dresses right before she died. That was tough on us both.”

“Did you pick out a dress?”

“Yeah,” I say softly knowing that there is a wistful quality to my voice.

“Is it pretty?” he asks me. His voice is quiet in the still evening of our bathroom.

“Yeah,” I sigh. “And kind of sexy too.”

“Sexy?” Wes asks me. “Tell me about it.”

“Unh uh,” I decline.

“No?” I can hear the smile in his voice.

“No. I want you to be surprised.”

“Okay, honey,” he says toying with a lock of my wet hair. “I’ll be surprised.”

“Okay.”

“Anything else bothering you?” he asks me.

“I can’t stop thinking about Rodriguez,” I admit.

“Yeah,” he agrees. “Me too.”

“Any new information?” I ask grasping at anything Wes might be willing to give me. I have to know what happened. I have this driving need inside of me to find the answer and solve the puzzle.

Wes studies me for a moment before letting out a heavy sigh. I know in that instant that he is about to give me the truth, whatever that might be.

“We have nothing,” he says and the vein at his temple pulses. I can tell how angry that makes him. It makes me angry too. “There are no tapes, no notes, no faces. We have nothing.”

“I hate this,” I whisper.

“Me too, honey.”

Wes pulls the towel from around my body and places it on the bathroom counter before rolling up one of his t-shirts and dropping it over my head. I push my arms through the armholes as he lets the faded fabric drop around my thighs.

“Let’s go to bed,” he tells me holding out his hand for me to take it and I do without hesitation.

Wes walks me towards our bed and drops my hand only to pull the bedding back so that we can climb in. Wes pulls me into the safety of his arms after pulling the blankets back over us. I feel warm, and safe, and sleepy so I let myself drift off.

It wouldn’t be until days later that I would realize that I was never safe.

Synopsis
I was a self-appointed bachelor and happy to have the title. Everyone thought it was time for me to settle down and find a nice girl. Well, no thank you. This cowboy wanted to stay clear of relationships. I wanted the freedom that came with no strings. 

But what did I know? Nothing apparently. 

Everything changed when I looked into her green eyes; my world tilted when she smiled at me. 

What was this feeling? 

Whatever was happening had me losing my damn mind. I fumbled with my words. My body wasn’t my own. I wanted her … desperately. 

Was I ready to give up my bachelor days, or was this Irish girl simply an itch I needed scratched? 

This Love is book 6 in the Cowboys and Angels series

THIS LOVE Teaser 1

Excerpt
“Do you like kissing women and getting them all hot and bothered and then walking away? Does that get you off?”

Cord walked around his desk and headed toward the door of his office. Where in the hell did he think he was going?

He shut the door and turned back to face me. When he walked toward me, I stepped back until me legs hit his desk.

“You were hot and bothered by our kiss?”

The way his blue eyes searched me face had me panting. It was getting harder to breathe, especially with him nearly pressed against me body…again.

“No,” I lied.

“That’s not what you just said, Maebh.”

I stood up straighter and squared me shoulders. “By your own admission, and on more than one occasion, Mr. Parker, you don’t always understand what I say.”

He laughed, and I moaned internally. God, I loved his laugh. And his smile. And the way he ran his fingers through his hair.

“Why are you so interested in if I’ve fucked someone in here?”

“I’m not,” I stated, me hands going to me hips.

He leaned closer, a whisper away. “You’re lying. I can tell because your cheeks are turning a beautiful shade of pink. I wonder how vibrant that pink gets when you come?”

Me mouth opened in utter shock, and I stared at him.

“I bet they turn vibrant.”

Cord stepped closer.

“I’ve never found the right woman to bring into my private space and make love to, but there’s always a first time…”

Me tongue bathed me dry lips. Cord’s eyes followed, and he let out a soft growl from the back of his throat.

“You… You…”

Christ, what are you trying to say?

“May I ask you something, Maebh?”

The way he said my name made me knees knock together. The room was spinning.

“Y-yes.”

“Did you like the kiss we shared? Did you like my hands under your dress? My cock pressed against you?”

I wanted to say yes, but I couldn’t forget how he’d made me feel when he walked away and then pretended it had never happened.

“I might have enjoyed it more if you hadn’t walked away from me like an arse.”

His smile instantly disappeared.

“Maebh, I didn’t mean to…”

My hands went to his chest to push him back, but I jerked them away when I felt the zap of energy rushing between us.

What in the world did this man do to me? He was dangerous. Very dangerous.

“I need to get back to Aisling. Have a nice one, Cord.”

He stepped out of my way, and I was relieved I wouldn’t have to argue with him.

Me eyes burned, and I couldn’t figure out why I let this man get me so worked up. I headed for the door, but before I could open it, Cord took me arm and spun me around. He pushed me against the office door. I was having a déjà vu moment.

“You didn’t enjoy any of that night, Maebh?”

A sexy smile moved over Cord’s face. “Answer me.”

Me eyes bounced all over his face as I fought to remember how in the hell to speak.

“What are you doing to me?” I whispered.

His forehead leaned against mine, and I noticed his chest heaving.

“I could say the same thing to you, agra.”

Everything stopped, and I inhaled a sharp breath.

“Where did you hear that?” I asked.

Cord moved away and pushed his hands into his pockets.

“Answer me,” I demanded. “Where did you hear that name?”

He shrugged. “You better get going, the restaurant opens in a few hours, and you’ll need to be ready.”

My mouth hung open. He was going to call me sweetheart and not even tell me how he knew that word.

“You confuse me, Cord Parker. One minute you make me think you want me, the next I’m like a bug you have to squash.”

He stood there, not saying a word.

“Do you?”

His eyes jerked up to meet mine. “Do I what?”

“Want me?”

It was the boldest question I’d ever asked a man, and me neck and cheeks felt like they were on fire. But I had to know. I needed to know how he felt.

When he didn’t reply and dropped his gaze, I had me answer.

“I didn’t think so,” I said, with a nervous laugh. “Stupid fool am I.”

“Maebh—”

“It’s okay. I see the women who throw themselves at you. I won’t compete with the likes of that.”

A look of horror moved over his face.

“I know I’m not as pretty or as…experienced…” I needed to leave before I kept spewing words.

“What are you talking about? Maebh, you’re…”

Cutting him off, I tried to act peppy as I plastered on a fake smile. “Have a good one.”

And like that, I was rushing down the hallway from Cord Parker. I’d just humiliated meself, and I would never forgive meself for being so damn weak.

It was a silly crush on a handsome boy who would never be happy with a girl like me.

 —————————————————————————-

Prologue
Ava

We met in a bar, of all places, a dingy hole-in-the-wall favored by military members from the nearby Navy base in San Diego. I went with a friend from school who was interested in one of the military guys. Before that night, Id never been there, and Ive never been back. John was celebrating the promotion of one of his buddies. He crashed into me as I left the ladiesroom and kept me from falling by grabbing my arms to steady me.

Just like in the movies, our eyes met, and my spine tingled with the kind of instantaneous awareness Id only read about but never experienced personally.

Im so sorry,he said, gorgeous and fierce in his fatigues.

I noticed gold on his collar, a hint of late-day scruff on his jaw and the name WEST in bold black letters on his chest. Intense electric-blue eyes made it impossible for me to look away, even when I was safely back on my feet.

Are you all right?he asked.

Realizing Id been staring at him, I blinked and reluctantly broke the connection. IYes, Im fine. Thank you for the save.

And then he smiled, and the tingling began anew.

Im John.

I shook his outstretched hand. Ava.

Keeping his hold on my hand, he tipped his head. You come here often?

Never,I said, laughing. Im a first-timer.

What do you think so far?

I wasnt impressed until about thirty seconds ago.

As if he had all the time in the world to give me, he leaned against the wall. Is that right? What happened thirty seconds ago?

I thought about taking back my hand but didnt. I was saved from certain disaster by a man in uniform.

The guy in the uniform is the reason you needed saving in the first place, because he wasnt watching where he was going. Least he can do is buy you a drink.

I wouldnt say no to that.I was proud of my witty responses and got the feeling he could more than hold his own in the wittiness department. Across the crowded room, I noticed my friend talking to the guy shed come to see, and her brows lifted in interest when she saw me with John. He guided me to the bar, placing a proprietary hand on my lower back, and told one of the guys to give me his stool.

Yes, sir.The younger man bowed gallantly to me as he took his beer and moved along.

Do people always do what you say?

If they know whats good for them.His teasing grin kept the comment from being overly cocky. What can I get you?

Deciding to live dangerously for once, I asked for a cosmopolitan.

Go big or go home,he said with admiration.

Thats my motto.I was so full of shit. I wondered if he could tell I was all talk or what hed think of me if he knew I usually err much closer to the side of caution than the wild side. I wondered if he could tell I was just barely old enough to drink. Id turned twenty-one only six months earlier.

When my cosmo and his Budweiser had been delivered, he offered a toast. To new friends.

I touched my glass to his bottle. To new friends.

So, wherere you from, Ava?

New York.

I thought I heard New Yawk in your voice.

I batted my eyelashes at him. So four years at the University of California San Diego didnt scrub the New York out of me?

Laughing, he said, Hardly. I know some guys from New York. One of them is from Staten Island, which is about as New York as it gets. I know New York when I hear it.

Im from Purchase, upstate from the city. What about you?

Im from all over. My old man is a retired general. You name it, Ive lived there.

Wheres home?

Right here.He turned that intense gaze on me, and I went stupid in the head. I couldnt see anything but him. We might as well have been alone in the crowded bar for all I knew. Unlike my friend, who loved men in uniform, I was never turned on by the uniform. Until then. Until John. You want to get out of here?

I swallowed hard. It wasnt like me to leave a bar with a man Id just met. And go where?

Somewhere we can talk.

What do you want to talk about?

He leaned in so his lips were close to my ear. Everything. I want to know every single thing there is to know about you.

Thats how we started. We were intense from the first second we met until the last time I saw him five years ago today. I cant believe its been five years since I looked into those incredible blue eyes or woke to him on the pillow next to me or heard his voice in my ear, whispering words thatre permanently carved into my heart as he made love to me.

The worst part is I have no idea where he is. I dont know if hes alive or dead, being held captive or if hes living his life somewhere else with someone else. I dont know, and the not knowing is the hardest thing Ive ever dealt with.

I love him as much today as I ever did. No amount of time could ever change that simple fact of my life. We had two beautiful, magnificent years together, caught up in our own little bubble. He never met my family. I never met his. We didnt make couple friends. We didnt talk about the future. We didnt need to. Our future was decided that first night, and it would take care of itself in due time. I honestly and naïvely believed that.

Now, with hindsight, I realize the bubble was strategic on his part. He gave me everything he had to give, including no promise of tomorrow.

Five years ago today, we watched the horror unfold on live television. A US-based cruise ship blown up by suicide bombers. Four thousand lives extinguished in a heartbeat. Our world permanently changed once again, our country declaring yet another war on terrorists. After 9/11 we thought wed seen everything. We were wrong.

I have to go,he said, grabbing the duffel that stood ready in the front hall closet. He called it his go bag.Id thought nothing of it.

Wherere you going?

I dont know.

When will you be back?

I dont know that either.He held my face in his hands and gazed at me, seemingly trying to memorize my every feature. I love you. Ill always love you.Then he kissed me as passionately as he ever had and was gone, out the door in a flash of camouflage.

I never saw him again.

Im not his wife or even his fiancée, so no one notified me of his whereabouts. And three months after he left, when I found a way onto the base in a desperate quest for information, no one there could tell me anything either. I tried to locate his parents and other people he mentioned, but it was like they didnt exist. I could find no record of a retired general named West in the Marine Corps, Army or Air Force.

Furthermore, an exhaustive search for information on the John West I had known led nowhere. No high school, no college, no military service, no nothing.

Sometimes I wonder if I dreamed the two years we spent together, doing mundane things like grocery shopping, cooking, watching TV and sleeping together after long days at work. But then Id remember the blissful passion, the scorching pleasure, the desire that ruled us from the beginning, and Id know I didnt dream him. I didnt dream us. We were real, and he was everything to me.

Sitting on the floor in our apartment, surrounded by boxes, I take a few minutes before the movers arrive to memorize every detail of the place where we lived together. Ive packed his things along with mine, and Im moving home to New York. Today was my deadline. I gave it five years, and I simply cant do it anymore. I cant sit in our home among our things, waiting for something thats never going to happen.

Its over. Its time for me to move on. Its probably long past time, if Im being honest with myself. And though I know its the right move at the right time, that doesnt mean my heart isnt shattering all over again as I dismantle the place where we were us.

My sister is getting married next month. I promised her Id be home in time to hold her hand through the festivities. Other than occasional trips home for holidays and other occasions, Ive been gone more than ten years. I bear no resemblance whatsoever to the girl who left home at eighteen seeking independence from her overbearing family at a faraway college out West.

I accomplished all my goals, finishing college, landing a decent job and falling in love with the man of my dreams. I found out what happens when dreams come true and how painful it is when they blow up in your face.

Its time now to set new goals, to start over, to begin a life that doesnt have John at the center of it the way it did here. Itll be nice to be back with people who love me and care about me, even if they tend toward smothering at times. Thats looking rather good to me after years of loneliness and grief.

The intercom sounds to let me know the movers are here. I pick myself up off the floor and steel my heart for the day ahead. I can do this. Ive been through worse, and Ill survive this the same way Ive survived everything else. Despite my resolve, my eyes fill with tears as I press the button that opens the door downstairs to the movers.

It doesnt take them long to pack my belongings into their truck. I keep with me the things that cant be replacedprecious photos, gifts he gave me, the clothing he left behind. After taking a final look around the apartment, I pack those boxes into my car, turn my apartment keys into the leasing office and head east, feeling as if Im leaving behind everything that ever mattered to me.

Its like Im losing him all over again. I cry all the way through the desert of Southern California and well into Arizona. I relive every minute I can remember, every conversation, every special moment. I think about what it was like to make love with him and wonder how Ill ever to do that with anyone but him. Maybe I wont. Maybe that part of my life ended with him, and even though Im only twenty-eight now, Im okay with that possibility. Once youve experienced perfection, its hard to imagine settling for anything less.

The tears finally dry up somewhere in northern Arizona, but the ache insideI take that with me all the way to New York, where I will try my very best to pick up the pieces of my shattered life and put them back together into some new version of myself.

After all, what choice do I have?

Chapter 1
Ava

My sister, Camille, doesnt do anything halfway, including get married. Shes one of those girls Id love to hate if she werent my beloved sister. Three years behind me in high school, she was class president, captain of the cheerleading squad, valedictorian and homecoming queen. Im sure the teachers who had me first wondered how the same genes couldve produced two such different sisters. Why do you think I moved so far from home to go to college and stayed there afterward? At least in San Diego, no one ever compared me to my rock star little sister.

A few weeks ago, she graduated from Yale Law School, at the top of her class, of course, and made Law Review, had offers from every big firm in the country and sported a three-carat diamond on her finger from the son of the New York governor.

Like I said, she doesnt do anything halfway. So here I am at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, standing beside my sister as she marries Robert James Tilden III in a lavish ceremony. Did I mention shes also freaking gorgeous? Well, she is, and never more so than today. Shes glowing with happiness and excitement and unfettered joy that serves as a bitter reminder of everything Ive lost.

Pass the champagne.

If ever there was a time to get rip-roaring drunk, this is it. Rob arranged for hotel rooms for every member of the wedding party, so no one has to drive or even function after the reception. I plan to take full advantage of my new brother-in-laws generosity up to and including room service breakfast.

Camille grasps my arm as we make our way from the rooftop where the happy couple exchanged vows to the ballroom where the reception will be held. Help me pee,she whispers.

I follow her to the restroom, where an attendant greets us and congratulates the bride.

Thank you so much,Camille says with a gracious smile for the woman.

Use the handicapped stall,the attendant says. Theres more room.

Good call,I say as we enter the roomy stall where Camille teaches me how to bustle her dress. I get it pinned up as best I can and then hold it out of harms way while she hovers over the toilet to take care of business.

This wasnt in my maid-of-honor job description.

She laughs. Sorry, but this is what sisters are for. And Im so glad youre here.

Me, too.And I mean that sincerely. I love seeing you so happy.

I am happy, but Ill be even happier tomorrow. Im so ready for a vacation after planning a wedding during the last year of law school. If that doesnt kill me, nothing will. Two weeks of sand, sun, sex and booze. Bring it on.

My heart aches with envy, making me feel small and petty. What I wouldnt give for two weeks in the tropics with John. What I wouldnt give to simply know hes alive. I shake off those thoughts. This isnt the time to wallow in the past. Today is about Camille and Rob, and Im determined to keep my focus on her.

She stands and hurls herself into my arms. I love you so much, Ava. Im so glad youre back home where you belong.

Blinking back tears, I return her embrace. Love you, too.Its good to be home. Whether Im back where I belong is questionable. I have no idea anymore where I belong, but Im going to figure that out. I wouldnt want to be anywhere else but with you today.That much is certainly true.

After she washes her hands at the sink inside the stall, she hooks her arm through mine to lead me out of the restroom as the attendant looks on with amusement. Lets get this party started.

We line up outside the ballroom, and Im paired with the best man, Robs brother, Eric. My sister has married into a rather fantastic gene pool. Not only are the Tildens wealthy and successful, theyre incredibly good-looking, too. Rob is a triplet, having shared the womb with Eric and their sister Amelia, whom they call Amy. They make a striking trioRob and Amy resemble their father, with dark hair and eyes, while Eric favors their blonde, hazel-eyed mother. Despite their different coloring, theres a definite resemblance among the three of them as well as their younger sister, Julianne, a blonde spitfire whos kept us laughing all weekend.

I instantly love the Tildens and can see why my sister is gone over Rob, who dotes on her to the point of nausea for the rest of us. Ill give them a pass since its their wedding weekend, but the words get a room have frequently come to mind during the festivities.

For Christs sake,Eric mutters while we wait to be introduced. Save it for the honeymoon.

I glance over my shoulder to see Rob and Camille engaged in yet another passionate lip-lock and laugh at the look of disgust on Erics handsome face. They cant help themselves.

I need a drink. The wedding party is allowed to drink, right?

God, I hope so.

Youre up,the wedding coordinator, a peppy woman named Mimi, says after Julianne and Robs cousin Nate are introduced.

Ready?Eric asks, extending his arm to me.

I tuck my hand into the crook of his elbow. Ready.

Please join me in welcoming our best man, the brother of the groom, Eric Tilden, and our maid of honor, the sister of the bride, Ava Lucas.The DJ draws out every syllable of my name, making me Avaaaaaa Luuuuucasssss.

We walk in to thunderous applause from the nearly five hundred guests in the ballroom. Ill admit to being intimidated by the crowd and the noise, both of which have me hanging on to Eric a little more tightly.

As if he can feel my tension, Eric covers my hand on his arm with his free hand, and the gesture comforts me.

We stand on the side of the huge dance floor with the rest of the wedding party.

And now, please welcome our bride and groom, Rob and Camille Tilden!

The applause is deafening as the happy couple makes their way into the room, stopping for hugs and kisses from friends and family. Theyve been deliriously happy for two years now, ever since they met at a fundraiser for Robs dad when Camille was finishing her first year of law school. Rob managed his fathers campaign and runs his New York City office.

Can we drink yet?Eric speaks close to my ear so only I will hear him.

Counting the minutes.I glance up at him and realize hes focused on me, not the bride and groom. The subtle, rich scent of his cologne surrounds me, making me want to lean in closer to him. This is, I realize in a moment of despair, the closest Ive been to any man since the day John kissed me goodbye and disappeared from my life.

I shiver even though the room isnt cold. If anything, its overly warm.

Are you okay?Eric asks.

I nod, but my heart aches. What I wouldnt give to have the man I love with me today, to celebrate my sisters marriage, to meet my family, to dance the night away. Even in the midst of so much happiness and joy, grief overwhelms me.

Its kind of disgusting, isnt it?Eric asks as he twirls me around on the dance floor after the wedding party is invited to join the bride and groom as they dance to The Best Is Yet to Comeby Frank Sinatra.

What is?

How perfect they are.He points his chin toward Rob and Camille, who are so caught up in each other, the hundreds of other people in the room might not exist for all they care.

Its not disgusting. Theyre perfect for each other.

He pulls back ever so slightly to look down at me with an impish twinkle in his eyes. You dont think its the tiniest bit disgusting that any two people can be that gorgeous and that successful?

Ill never admit to having had a few of those thoughts myself. No, of course not. Shes my sister. Im very proud of herand happy for her.

Uh-huh. Okay. If you say so.

Why is he trying to bait me? I say so.

You dont think its the tiniest bit unfair that they got it alllooks, smarts, true love, great jobs and a fab apartment? How much you want to bet theyre going to have ugly kids?

Its such an outrageous statement that I cant contain the gurgle of nervous laughter that erupts from my chest.

Ah-ha! I knew it! You totally think their kids will be ugly.

I do not! Dont say that. Hes your brother. Youre supposed to love him.

I do love him, but sometimes I want to punch his lights out. Everything comes so easily to him. Hes never had to really work for anything in his life.

And you have?

Ive worked hard for everything I have. Still do.

What do you do?

I spend years researching a single company for the fund I work for, only to be shot down when I bring it to the acquisitions team. Then I have to find another company, spend years working on that proposal and hope it doesnt get shot down, too. Im one-for-four over three years.

That sounds rather…”

Depressing?

Is it?

It can be. Its a major bummer to invest all that time and effort only to be shot down at committee.He leans in a little closer, again closer than any man has been to me since John left. Ill let you in on a little secret. Those companies I spend all that time researching?

I nod, intrigued by his secret.

Ive invested personally in every one of them, and theyve yielded spectacular results.

Then the time wasnt wasted.

Not at all.He gazes down at me, seeming to take a visual inventory of my features in a way that reminds me of John doing the same thing the night we metand again on the day he walked out of my life. The memory hits me like a punch to the gut, stealing the breath from my lungs. Youre very pretty, but of course you know that.

The most beautiful girl I ever met. Johns husky, sexy voice pops into my head, and Im transported right back to the bedroom we painted a light gray, the bed we chose together, the sheets tangled around our bodies as he made fierce love to me, whispering sweet words Ive never forgotten.

Ava? Are you okay?

Erics voice startles me, sucking me out of memories I wish I could wallow in. They come less frequently than they used to, and I live in fear of losing them forever at some point.

Ava?

I glance up at him, embarrassed to realize hes stopped moving and is looking at me with concern.

IIm sorry.

I didnt mean to upset you.

You didnt.

The rest of the wedding party, including the bride and groom, are looking at us, wondering why we arent dancing the way were supposed to.

Lets get a drink,Eric says.

But the dance…”

Screw the dance.He takes me by the hand and leads me to one of five bars strategically positioned around the massive ballroom. Whats your pleasure?

Just ice water, please.

He orders my water along with bourbon for himself. Lets get some air.

We take our drinks to a balcony where the warm June breeze is a welcome relief after the stifling ballroom.

Did I screw up by saying youre pretty?

No, of course not.Im mortified by the episode. Right when I think Im regaining my footing, a memory of John appears to show me otherwise. Sometimes I think Im no further along on this journey than I was the day he left.

Well, just for the record, you are very pretty. More than that, really. Gorgeous is a far better word. That was my first thought when I met you at the rehearsal.

Thank you.Hes flirting with me, and Im so out of practice, I have no idea how to respond.

Youre sure youre okay?

Im better now. It was hot in there.

Yes, it was. Camille said you just moved back to New York from San Diego. Whatd you do out there?

Fell in love with the most extraordinary man who disappeared from my life five years ago. II worked in PR.

Is that right? Julianne is in PR. She knows everyone. I bet she can help you find a new job. If youre looking, that is.

I am, and thatd be great. I have feelers out all over the city, but I have a feeling its more about who you know than what you know here.My goal is to live and work in the city so I can get out of my parentshouse in Purchase as soon as possible. After one month at home, I already know Ive been gone too long to go back to living at home long-term. My parents are lovely, and they mean well, but they dote on me like Im twelve rather than twenty-eight, and Im wounded enough that it would be easy to let them take care of me indefinitely.

Well set you up.

He says that with the easy confidence of a man with connections. As the son of the governor, hes probably fat with connections, and Im not above taking advantage of who his family knows to jumpstart my life in New York City.

After a few minutes outside, we rejoin the party. Were seated together at the head table, where we enjoy a delicious meal of tenderloin and shrimp. Eric entertains me with hilarious stories about growing up Tilden and how their parents had to ban practical jokes between the siblings out of fear of them burning the house down.

Despite the crowded room and the revelry all around us, in some ways I feel like were on a date by ourselves. He gives me his full attention, except when someone comes up to say hello to him. Then he introduces me as Camilles sister, Ava, and includes me in the conversation. Hes charming and fun and funny and handsome, and Im not sure if its him or the champagne that has me slightly dazzled, but whatever it is, Im having more fun than Ive had in years.

Mimi, the wedding planner, shows up after dinner with a cordless microphone that she hands to Eric. Youre on.

Oh crap,he says to me. I forgot I have to make a speech. What should I say?

Seriously?

Nah,he says, chuckling at my horrified expression. I got this.

He stands and loudly clears his throat into the microphone. If I could have your attention, please.When the room goes quiet, he says, This is the part of the program where the best man is supposed to humiliate the groom with embarrassing stories that make the bride wonder what the hell she was thinking marrying such a jerk.

Laughter ripples through the big room as Rob glares at him.

Sadly for me and the rest of you, Rob doesnt do embarrassing things. I knowIts not fair and sort of wrong that someone could live to be thirty-two without a truly embarrassing story to his name. But thats our Rob. Focused, brilliant and, despite a startling lack of flaws, fun to be around. And from all accounts, hes found in Camille someone whos just like him.Sobering, he says, Rob, weve been together a long time.

More laughter follows that statement.

And even though youre only five minutes older than me, youve been an awesome big brother and best friend. I love you, and on behalf of everyone here, I wish you and Camille the best of everything. Congratulations.

Rob stands to hug his brother while everyone else applauds.

Watching them together makes me feel emotional, which is odd because Id never met either of them before two days ago. Still, their obvious affection for each otherand the multiple glasses of champagne Ive consumedmade it a sweet moment to witness.

Your turn,Eric says, handing me the mic.

Taking the mic from him, I stand and wobble ever so slightly, cursing the champagne.

Erics hand on my back steadies me. I give him a grateful smile. Unlike Rob,I say into the mic, Camille had an awkward stage.

My sister groans, laughs and drops her face into her hands as her husband puts his arm around her.

She got a big idea to cut her hair super short right before middle school started. That was an unfortunate decision. She was also the girl whod come out of the restroom in a restaurant with a trail of toilet paper attached to her foot.

No!Camille cried. You did not just mention the toilet paper on my wedding day!

Thats all Ive got,I reply. Like your husband, youre too freaking perfect and obviously perfectly matched to each other. We can only hope that the six children youre sure to have will be high achievers like their parents.

Aint nobody having six kids,Camille says, cracking everyone up.

I just want to say that youre a wonderful little sister and friend. I love you, and I wish you and Rob a lifetime of the kind of joy and happiness youre feeling today.

Hear, hear.Eric raises his glass to the bride and groom, whore indulging in yet another passionate kiss.

And,I say, before surrendering the mic, on behalf of the entire wedding party, Id like to add one more thingGet a room. Please, get a room.

The comment, fueled by champagne, is met with wild applause from the rest of the wedding party.

Got one,Rob says with a dirty grin when the ruckus dies down. Gonna use the hell out of it later.

Shut up, Rob!Camille cries, punching his chest.

That leads to more kissing.

Booze,Eric says, standing. We need more booze.

Take me with you. Please, take me with you.

You got it.

 —————————————————————————-

KISS ME GOODNIGHT Teaser 1

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
There is a marching band pounding away in my brain.

I must have had too much to drink at the rehearsal dinner last night. I think. I have to get my ass ready for today—my wedding day—because if I don’t, my bestie, Emma, will have my ass.

I pry my eyes open, only then do I realize that I am not in our hotel room on the coast. I’m not in the luxury king sized bed full of fluffy euro pillows and down comforters near a window looking out at the Atlantic Ocean. I’m not where I should be. It takes my brain a minute, still feeling as fuzzy as it is, to realize that I’m not . . . safe.

The light shines through the wooden slats of the closet doors just the way that it is in my dreams.

I’m here. Right back where I started. Where I thought I would die when I was so small. Just a baby really. Where I once escaped and had naively thought I would never be back. I scoot back on the worn, torn carpet floor of the closet that I was locked in once before, until my back hits the wall. I try to make myself as small as possible hoping against all hope that he won’t see me. But as I hear the footsteps growing louder and louder, I know that there is no hope to be found. No hope at all.

The closet door swings open and I realize how stupid I have been. All this time that I struggled, that I suffered from those terrible nightmares and prayed that they would either end or I would finally remember who had tried to harm me when I was just six years old. All those times I thought I was safe, that I was free, were really nothing but lies because looking down at me with a sinister smile on his face in this little house of horrors from my haunted past is the last person I ever would have thought would be capable of this kind of thing.

I was never free, I was living under the watchful eye of a monster, a wolf in sheep’s clothing just waiting for their chance to pounce. His smile broadens and his eyes glimmer with excitement in the knowledge that he’s won. It’s finally over. This game of cat and mouse that we have been silently engaged in for twenty-four years is ending.

He pulls his leather belt free from his pants and loops it around my neck. I look up into his warm eyes, ones that I had always trusted as he tightens the leather around my neck.

“It’s you. It was always you,” I say as suddenly every memory finally clicks into place. Anna would be so proud.

I gasp as the air is squeezed out of my lungs. I struggle to pull more in even though in my brain I know that it isn’t possible. Maybe this is how it was always supposed to be. Maybe this is how my story was always supposed to end. My name is Detective Claire Goodnite and I’m about to die.

You know what they say, every story has its ending, I just wish I was prepared for this one.

I can already tell that this one’s gonna sting . . .

When he meets a feisty cocktail waitress, he thinks he’s found his way out.  

Faye Tandy is desperately in debt and hard-pressed to find help. Alex’s offer of a phony marriage for a ton of cash couldn’t come at a better time and she’s happy to help him exit the criminal world. The fact that he’s tall, dark, and handsome is an attractive bonus. But when she discovers the Russians have a contract out on her head, she wonders if divorced and bankrupt would be a better choice than rich and dead…  

As Faye’s fake feelings for Alex turn real, she’s terrified her trip to the altar might be her last. Will Alex and Faye’s throw of the dice succeed or will they lose the lawless game of love?

FINDING MY FIGHT by R.G. Corr (Full Cover)

 —————————————————————————-

Excerpt
He can’t be back. It’s impossible.

My breaths come thick and fast as I run frantically down the road. Peering around the edge of my hood, I check over my shoulder. I can’t see him. But just because I don’t see him, doesn’t mean he isn’t there… biding his time.

Hopelessness shrouds me as reminders of him continue to attack my mind. Blake… he can’t be here. He can’t be back. It’s impossible.  The rushed pounding of my boots landing on the concrete causes my panic to surge. I want to cry out but what if he hears me?

Stumbling the last step to the house, I drop my keys and shopping bag to the ground below, the contents spilling over the path around my feet. A sob catches in my throat as I desperately pick up the key. I have to get inside, away from him. Raising my right hand, I try to steady the trembling with my left. When the key slides into the lock and the click sounds, I push on the door with all my weight, almost falling inside.

Leaving the shopping splayed outside, I spin around and slam the door closed. The echo reverberates around the small hallway, but I don’t pause for a second. I twist the lock and jerk the chain across. Only then, as I lean back against the door, do I fight to take control of my breaths.

How can this be happening? How can he be here?

My head judders from side to side in a state of shock and disbelief. The first tear forms before more follow, falling to my cheek.

The freedom I’ve had a taste of is now at an end. He warned me it would always be us, no matter what. He won’t let me go twice, and I know I won’t be able to survive. Not again.

Hesitantly, I tread into the kitchen. The room appears uncharacteristically dark, but I don’t put on a light. I don’t want to be seen. My focus flitters from corner to corner, door to door, searching for anything that is out of place—but everything appears to be how I left it.

I move towards the window, standing back as far out of sight as I can. Gently, my fingers slide in between the blinds so I can peer outside.

Dark clouds make their way across the sky, droplets of rain are starting to fall again, and the trees sway with the impending storm that’s been predicted. I scan over the few people that are walking down the path on the opposite side of the road.

When I don’t see him, I look beyond, to the open fields.

“Where are you?” I say out loud. “You’re dead. You’re supposed to be dead!”

Withdrawing my fingers from the blinds, I move quickly to the cutlery drawer and take out a sharp knife.

“Dead!” I whisper in desperation. The fear encroaches as I think of the unimaginable and the possibility that somehow my husband is still alive.

I retreat until my back hits the wall. Like I did months ago when I knew he was near. When I knew it was time.

I tighten my grip on the cold metal of the knife knowing that this time, I have no choice but to be ready for him.

My mouth feels dry, and I lick my lips reliving what fear feels like. The hairs on the back of my neck now stand on end and my heart thumps louder, taking over the silence.

My legs slowly start to give way, and I slide down the wall as a broken sob rips from my chest.

I thought the nightmare had ended, but as I sit, gulping back my cries in an attempt to remain quiet, I fear it’s only just beginning.

My husband is back, and there’s only one reason he’s here. For me.

When a voice calls out, my body jolts against the wall. The letterbox rattles as he calls my name through the opening.

My fingers tighten around the knife in my palm. He won’t hurt me. Not again.

Synopsis
Meghan
Five days in Paris sounded like a great idea for three friends. Especially when amazing wine was in play. It didn’t matter that our rented “apartment” only had one bed, and barely enough space to breathe, we were in Paris and our motto was c’est la vie. Nothing would faze us, not even the rude waiter at the first restaurant we went to, or the insanely hot manger who was insulted when a bottle of wine was returned.

Nothing could bring me down or knock me off my path to the best vacation of my life.

Alex
I had six days in Paris and then I’d go back to  my wine vineyard. It was smooth sailing, until three “americans” came into the restaurant and returned my newest full bodied, savory creation. I ignored her until she stormed out of the restaurant looking for a taxi at one in the morning.  I couldn’t leave her wandering around the streets of Paris, could I?

I’d give her a ride, make sure she was safe, and my duty would be done. Except, was it? Something about her pulled me. This could be a vacation fling. After all, there is no real reason for her to know my interesting secret.

I’m France’s most eligible bachelor.

This faux pair is almost a faux pas…

FAUX PAS Teaser 1

Excerpt
He makes his way through the tables, straight to ours. “quel est le problème?” What is the problem, his voice comes out gruff, the smell of his musk hitting my nose.

“Le vin n’est pas bon,” The wine isn’t good, I start saying, and I look at his eyes that look almost black. I’m not sure if it’s his natural color, or if the restaurant is dimmer now than before, or maybe it’s just his form blocking the lights. “il a un goût de vinaigre.” It tastes like vinegar, and I’m not sure it was the right thing to say or not. He stares at me, not saying a word. “Taste it.” I give up on my French and switch to English. “You’ll see.”

I’m waiting for him to say something back, but he doesn’t. Instead, he turns around and walks away from the table, going into the back. “What the fuck just happened?” Diana says in a whisper. We all turn to see where he went, checking to see if he is going to storm back in. 

“She insulted his wine,” Kate says, leaning in and speaking softly. 

I throw my hands in the air. “It was shit,” I say louder than I wanted to. “You guys said it yourself.” Looking around, I see that a couple of the tables are looking at us, but the majority of the tables are deep in their own conversations and not paying attention.

We don’t say anything else when we see the waiter come back with a new bottle in one hand and a new wine glass in the other. He uncorks the wine, then pours a touch in and waits for me to taste it. I don’t say anything to him; I just nod my head, and he puts the bottle in the middle of the table. “I guess I will pour the wine,” Kate says, picking up the bottle and pouring it in everyone’s glass. I pick up the glass of wine and bring it to my lips. The cold glass is resting on my lips when I feel someone staring at me. I look down and take a sip, then look around, and I guess it’s just me because no one is looking in my direction.

By the time we finish dinner, we’ve drunk two more bottles. and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The food was amazing. “We need a taxi,” I say. Getting up, I grab my jacket, shrugging it on. 

“I think we can walk to the corner that way,” Diana says, pointing at the sky, “and flag one down.” 

“If we go that way,” Kate says, pointing at the sky, “we need to call NASA.” We all laugh out loud while the waiter comes to take the bill from us. 

“Merci.” We smile at him as he walks away, still not saying a word. 

“Yes, thank you for my glass of ice cubes that you only brought me one of even though I asked for seven,” Kate says, laughing while trying to whisper. “And thank you for pouring our wine.” 

“Okay, let’s go,” I say, walking to the front door. 

“I’m going to ask him for a taxi,” Kate says, going to the waiter who stands at the hostess counter and asking him for a cab. 

I watch from the front door as Diana stands behind her while I look in my bag and pull out my lip gloss. 

“Pardon.” I hear Kate say loudly, and I look up. 

“Vous pensez qu’après tout ce que vous avez fait ce soir vous méritez que je vous appelle un taxi ?” I stand here with my mouth open in shock when he answered her. Do you think after everything you did to me tonight that you deserve that I call you a taxi? 

Kate starts. “What did I do? Expect you to do your job?” she says, and Diana grabs her arm, pulling her to the front door. 

“Did he just say …?” I ask her when we are standing outside in front of the restaurant, the wind blowing my hair in front of my face. I turn my head, making it fly back the other way. 

“So it’s safe to say,” Diana starts with a laugh, “we aren’t coming back to this restaurant.” 

“Take a picture of it, and tomorrow we can go on Yelp and leave a bad review,” Kate says, grabbing her phone from her pocket. 

“Let’s just go,” I say, and the three of us look around at the desolate street. 

“What time is it?” I ask and take out my phone. “Shit, it’s one a.m.” 

“Yeah,” Diana says. We look right down the dark street and see some traffic coming from up ahead. “We should walk to that street and flag down a taxi.” 

We all nod and start walking with Kate in the middle. “He was such an ass,” Kate says, “and the boss or manager was an even bigger ass.”

“Seriously,” I say, turning to them. “It’s like it was my fault his wine was shit,” I say, and then we all stop when a white four-door Audi stops next to us, surprising us. 

“Get in.” The voice sounds familiar, but the street is so dark it doesn’t help. I lean in a bit to see his face, and I’m shocked when I see it’s the manager from the restaurant.

A chance for a sweet future, or a recipe for disaster? 

Kaitlynn
My dream was to cook my way to fame and fortune, not run myself ragged keeping my late parents’ quaint Savannah restaurant afloat. My sister is useless, I’m chronically short-staffed, and even Gertie, my antiquated oven, hates me.

Then in charges Oliver, like a Golden Knight. He’s hunky and charming and makes others feel at ease. He’s earnest and kind, optimistic and extroverted. My best friend. My sister’s ex. Picking up the slack like he never left all those years ago. Making my body shiver with the lightest touch, the slightest smile. It would be so easy to let him be my knight in shining armor. But I can’t let him, even though he makes Gertie purr like a kitten.

Oliver
I practically grew up waiting tables alongside KitKat. She’s a brilliant chef, but it’s clear she’s no manager. I’ve noticed other changes in her since her letters stopped coming to me in Iraq. There’s fire burning in her green eyes—and pain.

The kiss was meant to comfort. But it explodes into searing passion so white-hot, not even the tallest, iciest sweet tea can quench it. I shouldn’t try. She doesn’t want help, especially not mine. But a kiss like that is the beginning of a promise. A promise that won’t stop until I help her find her dream.

Excerpt #5
Abby

I processed a lot of things just now, but one thing is for sure: Tyler’s right. I’ll never be able to move forward if I keep thinking of the past. I don’t want to live in the past. I want to live in the now and keep improving. To start, I’m sticking to my word and being the person he needs me to be. After all, being someone that people can trust is who I want to be.

“Yes,” I say with a deep breath.

“Okay,” he says, and I can’t help but mirror his grin.

“Mr. Maron.” A tall, gray-haired man who reminds me of on an older Pierce Brosnan approaches us with a blonde woman who looks half his age on his arm. “I was beginning to think I wouldn’t find you in this crowd,” the man goes on.

Tyler chuckles, and my heart immediately warms. It’s his real laugh and not a fake one to impress his boss. I wasn’t sure what to expect once he was around his coworkers, but it looks like the real Tyler is still here.

“Mr. Jinks, I presume?” I speak up. The man places his hand in mine with a nod. “I’ve heard wonderful things about your company.”

“Thank you. I was beginning to think you were going to say about me, and I was growing curious as to what Tyler could have said,” he replies with a chuckle. “This is my wife, Bristle. I’m sorry, I didn’t catch your name.”

“It’s Abby, Abby James.”

“Soon be Abby Maron, of course,” Tyler cuts in. His soft lips press gently against my temple and places me in a trance that slowly closes my eyes. I know I’m smiling like an idiot. The worst part? I’m not faking how much I’m enjoying the embrace.

“Engaged. I had no idea,” Mr. Jinks says loudly enough to draw attention from neighboring booths.

“Oh, please, can I see the ring?” Bristle asks.

My heart sinks, and Tyler’s eyes find mine.

Shit.

“It’s being resized,” he says quickly and tightens his hold on my hand.

I nod. “Yes. That darn thing just kept sliding off. Still,” I hold up my left hand. “I feel naked without it already.”

“Next time, I suppose,” Bristle says.

“Of course.”

“These town picnics are always a bore. I don’t even know why I come anymore,” a voice says behind Tyler’s boss, and every hair on my body raises.

Mr. Jinks sighs and steps aside, just as the face that matches the voice comes into view.

Shit. Shit. Shit.

“Tyler, Abby, I’d like you meet my son, Kurt.”

I swallow and force a smile as Kurt crosses his arms and widens his stance. If he weren’t Tyler’s boss’s son, I’d slap that smug grin right off his face.

His attention never leaves mine, not even when Tyler says hello and sparks a new subject of conversation. In all honesty, I can’t concentrate on this new topic either. It’s impossible to focus when the man responsible for sending your mother over the edge is standing right in front of you.

Synopsis
Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.

What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.

Nope, not Linc.

At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone. In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms. She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’ She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.

Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water. There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.

But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.

A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.

Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.
