Synopsis
For Jessica Connolly, there is no better place than her coastal hometown of Blue Moon Bay. She has a wonderful family, supportive best friends, and a successful bakery on Main Street. Unfortunately, every time she designs one of her ex-boyfriends’ wedding cakes, she’s reminded just how unlucky she is with love…and that she’s a good luck charm for men to find their happily ever after. With someone else. The minute they break up. So she’s decided to be done with love.

Dr. Mitch Jameson is more comfortable traveling the world with Doctors Without Borders than staying in one place. He just needs to survive the holidays in his small hometown before he can leave again. The beautiful, intriguing bakery owner with an aversion to dating might be just who he needs to occupy his restless heart.

From sipping hot chocolates at the local festival of lights to early morning dessert deliveries, Jessica and Mitch rediscover the spirit of the holidays. But when the 25 days of Christmas are over, will their romance be over, too?

Excerpt
December 1st…24 Days until Christmas

“Be honest, you at least spit in the frosting, right?”

Jessica Connolly placed the bride-and-groom topper on the white-and-silver, tastefully Christmas-themed, three-layer cake and stood back to admire her work. “The only joy in all of this is that they will never know.” She winked at her best friend, Whitney, as she carefully boxed up the forty-hour labor of love.

Later that day, her beautiful creation would be enjoyed at ex-boyfriend number three’s wedding. Three weddings in the same year for three guys she’d had relationships with. Unbelievable.

“No one would blame you if you did.” Sitting at the counter of Jessica’s bakery, Delicious Delicacies, her not so recently engaged friend flipped through the book of wedding cake designs that she’d looked at a dozen times already. Her beautifully manicured, candy-cane-themed nails flicked the pages so fast it was a wonder she could actually see the choices. Whitney shook her head. “I can’t believe these guys, asking you to do this.”

“To be fair, I’m the only real bakery in town. And besides, John, Cameron, and Dallas are great guys. They just weren’t the right guys for me,” Jessica said, repeating her mantra. She could put on a brave face, but this was getting exhausting.

Three brides in the last year. None of them her.

And worse, there wasn’t anyone in her small hometown of Blue Moon Bay that she wanted to date that she hadn’t already. At almost thirty, she’d been hoping to design her own wedding cake soon.

“The funny thing is,” Whitney said, “they all found ‘the one’ after they ended things with you.”

“Thanks for pointing that out, Whit.”

Her friend’s laugh was apologetic. “Sorry. I’m just saying, you’re like a good luck charm for these guys. Wasn’t there a movie like that?”

“Believe me, if this was a movie, I’d have your legs and Sarah’s butt.”

Whitney paused her page-flipping, her expression contemplative as she tilted her head to the side.

Did we have a winner? Excitedly, Jessica leaned over the counter to see which design had caught her friend’s attention. Her heart stopped. It was the three tier cascade wedding cake, white with lavender accents and sugar work doves adorning the top. Jessica’s favorite. The cake she’d always wanted for her own wedding…if/when she ever got married.

Please don’t let her select that one.

If her best friend wanted it, there was no way Jessica could deny her from having it. She held her breath, waiting…

It’s only a cake. No big deal. She could design a new one for herself. Not as pretty as this one.

A second later, Whitney resumed flipping.

Oh thank God.

Synopsis
Ambushed and left for dead, U.S. Secret Service K-9 Officer Markus York is on the mend and laying low in a safe house while his team tracks down his attacker. But Markus isn’t good at sitting still. Even with his K-9, Ghost, for company, he gets restless and decides now is the perfect time to do some repairs around the house…and inadvertently tears open his wounds.

Fresh out of a bad relationship that ended after a car accident left her with limited mobility, freelance accountant Cassidy Morgan has sworn off men. At least, that’s the plan. Until a frantically barking dog leads her to a neighbor’s house where she finds a mysterious man out cold and bleeding on the floor…and mumbling things like “no, they’ll find me” when she tries to call an ambulance.

Yeah, that’s not at all concerning.

Despite Markus’s surly attitude, Cassidy senses there’s something else at work beneath his rugged, keep-your-distance exterior. Whatever it is, it’s sexy as hell.

With someone still trying to kill him, Markus doesn’t want an innocent to get hurt, let alone take care of him.

If only his dog wasn’t crazy in love with her.

If only the chemistry between Markus and Cassidy didn’t explode whenever they were in the same room.

If only Cassidy wasn’t a target now, too.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt
He jerked his head to a table on the other side of the room. “Ghost. Water bottle.”

Ghost went to the table and grabbed a water bottle in his teeth. He brought it to them, letting the bottle slip free into Markus’s waiting hand. She expected it to be punctured in at least one place, but it wasn’t.

He handed her the bottle. “You earned this.”

“Water? I earned a lot more than this.” She held up the bottle. “Try that pepperoni pizza in the bottom of my freezer. Talk nice to me, and I’ll share it with you. Oh, wait. I forgot you’re carb-free. Well, more pizza for me. If the weeds were growing outside, I’d make you a dandelion salad.”

“Actually, Little Miss Snark,” he said, setting the clipboard on the bench behind him, “that’s not a bad idea. Dandelion leaves are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants.”

“Well, don’t botanical factoids just get your heart racing?” She stood and her leg, unaccustomed to the workout, promptly gave out from beneath her.

Markus grabbed her upper arms, steadying her. Instead of releasing her right away, he just stared at her, frowning and scowling, if that were even possible. “Yeah. They do,” he murmured.

His gaze dropped to her lips and he took a step closer, cupping her face with one hand. The fresh scent of whatever soap he’d used filled her lungs, along with his own brand of sexy-as-hell man-scent. As he slowly lowered his head, her lips parted and she held her breath.
Was he going to kiss her? Did she want him to? Oh. Yeah. She did, and with every inch their mouths drew closer, her stupidly hopeful heart pounded faster.

Who knew dandelions were the way to this man’s heart?

Markus released her and when he stepped back, there was no missing the flicker of regret in his eyes. “We should get that pizza in the oven,” he said in a voice so gruff it sounded as if someone had taken sandpaper to his vocal cords.

Or not.

As she watched him and Ghost go up the stairs, Cassidy breathed deeper to slow the wings of those beating butterflies in her belly. Kissing him had just leaped to the top of her Most Wanted list, but it was just as well he hadn’t gone through with it. Getting too attached to him would be in direct violation of the second item on her New Year’s resolutions list: Never, ever, get her heart broken again. Just as importantly, being kissed by him would only have given her a fleeting taste of something that wouldn’t last. Sooner or later, Markus would leave. He was part of another world, and he’d only dropped into hers temporarily.

What she ought to do was make the most of his company and his physical therapy while it lasted. Then call it good when he left.

Cassidy took a deep breath then grabbed her cane and headed for the stairs. Not that she was close to falling in love with Markus, but getting hung up on a guy like him would be stupid. It had never been in her nature to give up on love or stop hoping for it again, even if the price to be paid for love gone wrong was loss and pain, but with Markus, that pain was guaranteed.

And she wasn’t ready for more pain.

Synopsis
Family drama is something Lutéce Choate struggles to avoid. With a mother who’s an award-winning country western song writer, an aunt who’s a Country Music Hall of Famer, and a brother who’s a rock star, it hasn’t exactly been a low-key kind of life, and she’s ready for a break.

Then Lu’s younger sister, Claire, goes off and gets engaged to a prince from Malquar, bringing the dreaded spotlight back to shine on their family once again. Lu wants to go to the engagement party about as much as she wants to yodel the Star Spangled Banner at the Grand Ole Opry with her crazy relatives. Alas, not going, doesn’t appear to be an option.

Alistair George Henry Bere Hale is not the heir, but the spare. Without the weight of the Crown in his future, he’s managed to live the carefree life of a man about town. That is until his younger brother gets engaged before him and their mother starts pressuring him to settle down.

Alistair represents everything that Lutéce has come to despise–he’s a rich, playboy, partier, who’s always in the spotlight… But Alistair doesn’t feel the same about Lu. In fact, he’s quite drawn to his brother’s future sister-in-law, prickles and all.

When Lu and Alistair’s mothers witness the sparks between their children, they start to make plans of their own. Will Lu relax her prejudices long enough to get to know Alistair?

Find out in the fabulously funny fourth book in the Seven Bride’s for Seven Mothers Series.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #2
After the pilot comes over the intercom to welcome us to Malquar, we all stand to deplane. Mixed emotions flood my thoughts as the strains of music from a live band start to fill the atmosphere around us.

“They’re playing the Malquarian anthem,” Geoffrey explains. “I didn’t come home for my thirtieth birthday, as per my parents’ plan, so I can only assume there might be a bit of a circus out there.”

Stepping back into the cabin, I bend down to look out the window. Yup, there it is, the circus. There must be a fifty-piece band playing on one side of a red carpet. The other side is full of reporters and photographers.

The image of an old ringmaster, full-on with a red coat, tails, and black top hat, pops into my head. He’s holding a bullhorn to his mouth, and I can practically hear him shout, “Will everyone please turn their attention to the center ring. Our prince has returned home with his bride and her illustrious family of yodelers!” Tooty and Mom love to yodel as a means of decompressing. It’s enough to make your ears bleed if you’re not a fan of the genre.

And sometimes, even if you are a fan.

I return to our little exit line and watch while Geoffrey and Claire disembark. They stop and wave as the crowd cheers wildly. Crap, I should have brought some better clothes to change into. The jogging suit I’m currently wearing was chosen for comfort, not to meet the press.

As if reading my mind, my mom turns around and looks me up and down before saying, “Oh dear, maybe you should stay on the plane until the crowd disbands.” Ouch.

Ignoring her, I run my fingers through my auburn hair and pinch my cheeks to bring some color to them. By the time it’s my turn to get off, most of the press is on the tarmac, crowding around my sister and her intended. The rest seem to be vying for Tooty’s attention.

I scan the masses, feeling oddly separated from my body. It’s like I’m watching a scene in a movie. I’m about to step down onto the stairs when my gaze locks with a pair of dark chocolate brown eyes, penetrating eyes that cause me to stop dead in my tracks and gasp audibly. “Settle down, Lu,” I chastise myself silently for such an absurd reaction to Geoffrey’s brother. Alistair was nothing but a flirtatious annoyance at his sister’s wedding, and I’m not looking forward to more of the same. Yet, even as I try to convince myself of this, my heart beats in double time and perspiration starts to form on my palms.

Great. Not only am I dressed like a college kid returning home for break, but I’m nervously sweating. Which is super fun, as what I’m guessing is the entire national press corps is out there ready to film the scene for posterity.

About the Author
USA Today Bestselling author Whitney Dineen is a rock star in her own head. While delusional about her singing abilities, there’s been a plethora of validation that she’s a fairly decent author (AMAZING!!!). After winning many writing awards and selling nearly a kabillion books (math may not be her forte, either), she’s decided to let the voices in her head say whatever they want (sorry, Mom). She also won a fourth-place ribbon in a fifth-grade swim meet in backstroke. So, there’s that.

Whitney loves to play with her kids (a.k.a. dazzle them with her amazing flossing abilities), bake stuff, eat stuff, and write books for people who “get” her. She thinks french fries are the perfect food and Mrs. Roper is her spirit animal.

Synopsis
Fail the tests and become a slave. Display defectiveness and be put to death.

Monroe Academy was built to separate the weak from the strong. Pass the biyearly leveling and be released into society upon graduation. Fail to be promoted and be stripped of rank and forced into servitude. That was a rule that applied to all but Rayah Bardeau. A student of Monroe Academy, branded as a Null because of her absence of Lighter energy.

With her mother standing as a slave in her place, Rayah was given until the age of twenty to make level six, but at nineteen-years-old and with only eight months until her twentieth birthday, she was only a mere level one. The same level she’s been since she was ten. With the stress of her upcoming test, the loss of a friend, and the constant wrongdoings towards her, Rayah could only dream of escaping from Lytonia, and escape she did. Only, when she awakened in her dorm, she couldn’t distinguish if she had only dreamt of meeting Soren, a wild and adventurous defect in the Wild Lands, or if she had somehow used her Lighter Form to get there.

But only the elite ― the most powerful of Lighters ― could tap into their Lighter Forms. Right? And what was the dark energy she used when she and Soren were attacked by Depleters? Was Rayah really as powerless as she thought? Was she a defect? And if she used dark energy, could she call herself a Lighter at all?

Bestselling author Destiny Hawkins brings you the first installment of a gripping dark fantasy where a powerless girl must survive in a society that doesn’t accept the weak…or the defective.

Content Advisory: The following book contains vivid depictions of violence and death. Reader discretion is advised.

Excerpt #3
I let my hand drop to my side and began walking but didn’t even make it a few feet before hearing twigs and leaves crunching on my left. When I turned my head to see who or what it was, I froze, and my lips parted to inhale.

Oh, no.

Psycho had also stopped walking when he spotted me, looking almost as shocked as I was. If he were any regular guy that I’d spotted in the forest, I would have blushed at his handsomeness. I couldn’t see him as well the first night that we met, but now that I was looking at him in the brightness of the day, I couldn’t stop staring. The sun rays shining down on him only made it harder for me to turn away, but when my eyes landed on the Life Stones dangling from around his neck, I frowned.

A slow and devious grin crept up Psycho’s lips. “Found you.”

Right as I started to run, white lighting blasted from Psycho’s fingertips. He didn’t expect me to slide under it, roll to my feet, and continue running. I was experienced in having others try and use their powers to keep me from escaping, so I naturally knew how to get around some things.

I heard crackles of lightning slicing through the air behind me, barely missing me by a hair each time. Splinters of wood exploded from the trees, warning me not to slow down. Psycho was probably more experienced in chasing his victims than I was in running from my attackers, so I had to consider that he was leading me in the direction that I was going.

I wanted to stop and turn but changing direction would be dangerous. I could turn right, making myself an easier target, I could go in the opposite direction, giving him a few seconds time to zap me, or I could just charge at him and catch him by surprise. He was just an elem. It was the brights that I had a hard time fighting against, since they were so fast and strong, but Psycho-

Fire roared past my face, causing me to slide to a stop. I wasn’t paying attention and had almost been burned. The heat of the flame kept me from running through it, making me think back to Artemis and his hot iron rods. I couldn’t believe that my thoughts of being burned again had hindered me from escaping. I had run through fire plenty of times before, patting off the fire patches as I got away, but this time I couldn’t move. Artemis had done something to my mind, causing me freeze in fear.

Synopsis
Harlow Shaw feels naïve for believing in happily ever afters but she craves a love that lights her up.

She thought she had it all with her boyfriend. Until his promising baseball career overshadows their relationship and he asks her a life changing question. It causes her to wonder if what they have is all she ever truly wanted.

Harlow is yearning for more than the curated life she is living.

A trip to Bali, a move to Seattle, and a “burned” cup of coffee lead her to a friendship she didn’t know she needed and a love so deep she can feel it in her bones.

Excerpt #3
I just finished up with my afternoon client and glance out my shop’s windows. I have to double-take because I realize that the girl my sister introduced me to is standing out there staring at the sign. She has the coffees I ordered— I glance at the clock on the wall— almost an hour ago in her hands. Not that I give a fuck about how long it took her to get here. I’m actually glad it took her longer because it would have gone cold while I finished up with my client. That doesn’t stop me from wanting to give her shit about it. A smile pulls at my lips as I make my way to the lobby.

I hear her talking to Riley. Well, more so, Riley talking to her, because Harlow is too busy looking around the shop with curiosity to listen to what she has to say. I enjoy the view of her. She has a willowy frame with legs for days, a nice ass. Her skin is a rich, velvety golden brown, and she has light brown kinky curly hair that is piled on top of her head in a bun, Her bright brown almond shaped eyes look like sunshine shining through a glass of whiskey. Okay, so I may have studied her a little harder than what I let onto my sister. Fucking sue me. It would be a sin to not appreciate a nice view.

She starts to respond to Riley. “Oh, no I’m—” but when she turns around to examine the rest of the shop her gaze falls on me and she stops mid-sentence.

“Late,” I finish her sentence for her.

She stands there with her lips slightly parted as if she isn’t sure what to say.

Her full lips curve into a smile and she starts looking around the shop again as she talks. “Yeah, sorry, it’s busy at the shop and I shouldn’t even be working today, but my uncle needed me so I decided to work so…” Her voice trails off and she holds out the cup holder to me.

“They should be hot…”

I don’t immediately take them, I just let her stand there for a few seconds holding them out to me while I continue to stare at her. She raises an eyebrow, still with a smile on her face, and I take them. Does she always smile this much?

“Is it burned?” I ask and try my best to keep the smile off of my face.

Her eyes narrow and she crosses her arms over her chest. “I don’t know, why don’t you taste it and tell me since you’re such a coffee connoisseur.”

I can’t help the smile that pulls at my lips. I look for my cup of Americano and grab it. I turn my attention towards Riley. “Can you take these back for the rest of the crew?” Riley gets up and looks between Harlow and I, clearly confused. I rarely make small talk with people. Especially someone who is delivering coffee.

Harlow’s eyes follow Riley as she leaves. Her smile is back on her face. “She’s nice.”

“That’s because I pay her to be.”

“Yeah, imagine customers having to deal with you first? Tragic.” Her voice sounds like honey laced with venom.

This time, I give her a genuine smile and she rolls her eyes.

“Well, I better get back to the shop. It’s really busy right now.”

I pique an eyebrow. “Aren’t you curious as to whether the coffee is burned or not?”

She rests her hands on her hips. “I know it isn’t, Acyn.” I’m shocked she remembered my name and that she calls me Acyn instead of Ace. Only family and a few close friends call me Acyn. To everyone else I’m Ace, the tattoo guy.

“You can call me Ace.”

She blinks at me and snorts with laughter.

“What’s so funny?” I ask.

“Nothing… Ace,” she says my nickname with a sarcastic tone and then chuckles. “I’ll call you Acyn. It sounds better anyway.”

Venom Kenner is the lead singer of Dirt Cherry, a band well known for their dirty lyrics and larger-than-life antics. With heart-stopping good looks, loving parents, and becoming famous at a young age, Venom is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it–and he wants Jenna.

Jenna Demptation’s life has been one hardship after another. When her older sister becomes the PR manager for Dirt Cherry and strong-arms Jenna to help for the summer, Jenna is happy to get away from her crappy day-to-day life. Until too-good-looking-to-be-real Venom sets his sights on Jenna and sets her nerves into overdrive. Jenna makes an art of shying away from Mr. Hot-Pants McHottie. She has been hurt way too much in the past to trust anyone, far less someone as perfect as Venom, so she’s determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry.

But Venom knows in his heart this relationship is worth a shot and he’s not going to let a little thing like hesitancy get in his way…

ROCK STEADY, the first book in the adult contemporary rock star romance series, Kenner Brothers, and the sixth book in the Rock Hard series, by M.J. Roberts is Out Now!

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt
Jenna leans against me during the twenty-minute taxi ride. When we get there, I help her out, and we stand for a few seconds in the street facing the church before I say anything. “Alright, baby. Close your eyes.” I take off her blindfold. She blinks a few times.

“It’s…it’s a church.”

“Right, kitten. I bought you a church.”

She looks at me. “Kidding. Come on.” I grab her hand and pull her until we’re standing in front of a large stone to the side of the door. The writing is so worn down it’s barely legible. Jenna bends down to stare at it.

“1583.”

“This is one of the oldest churches in Mexico. In all of the Americas actually. Spaniards used Aztec touches, so it’s a combination of both cultures.”

Jenna takes a few steps back to admire the stone work. The church isn’t big, but it’s got an ancient beauty.

“They rent it out for events, like baptisms.” Or weddings. “So I rented it for tonight.”

Her gaze whips to me.

“Come on, you’ll see.” I take her hand and we walk inside. The first vestibule is filled with thirty or forty bells hanging from the ceiling and walls lined with small red votives. Almost all the candles are lit and it casts a pink glow.

“You look beautiful in this light.”

She rolls her eyes. I pull her to me.

“Beautiful.”

“Thanks. You look good in any light, so I’ll just be happy if I’m tolerable.”

Honey, you’re a hell of a lot more than tolerable.

I pull her into the main hall. The heavy wooden pews have been pulled to the side. Behind the dais is a wall of gold writing.

“You speak Latin, kitten?”

“I can barely speak English.”

“It says ‘He who will provide dinner for his girl, will get to eat his girl for dinner.”

She snorts. “Yeah, that would have been my first guess.”

The ladies I hired to make dinner wheel a table in.

“When did you get a chance to arrange this?” Jenna asked.

“T.J. and Spider helped me pull some strings last minute, so about a minute ago.”

The oldest woman lifts up the cover on a big pot and the air saturates with Mexican spices.

“Oh my God, that smells amazing,” Jenna says. She turns in a slow circle looking at the church. She looks back at the table as the women remove silver dome covers off four more plates of traditional Mexican dishes. The older women says something in rapid-fire Spanish, and then they leave us alone.

“Venom…” Jenna says.

I pull out her chair and hold it for, but she doesn’t sit.

“Venom…” Jenna says again. I feel like she’s going to protest that it’s too much. That being in such a gorgeous building that’s almost five hundred years old is too romantic, implying things that last.

Her stomach growls.

“No pressure,” I say, gesturing to her chair. “Unless there are too many beans, then it’s abdominal pressure.”

Jenna just shakes her head at me.

“Sit, baby. Let’s eat.”

“Shame to waste it.” Jenna sits down, and I scoot her chair in for her. She takes the first few bites of food and makes a pleased moan.

I’m determined to let her lead the conversation, hoping she’ll open up more about herself, but she keeps it light. She talks about movies she’s seen, how good Kate looked in Hard Chord’s “Rising to Whole” video, what new outfits Maria has sewn for the twins.

I could listen to her voice for a long time. Like rocking chairs on our porch in our nineties long time. I prop my chin in my hand and rest my elbow on the table.

“What?” She rubs the sides of her mouth. “Do I have something on my face?”

“No, I’m just enjoying this.” I gesture around the church hall. “Just the two of us, alone, having a nice dinner in a really interesting place. I’m grateful and appreciating it, is all. If I didn’t have Dirt Cherry I wouldn’t be here in Mexico, staring at you. If Kate hadn’t worked for Hard

Chord and gotten with Jase, you wouldn’t be here. Maybe I never would have met you. But it all worked out.”

She sighs wistfully. “Yeah, it’s been great.”

It sounds totally innocent at first, but when I replay it in my mind that past tense sounds final.

“My plane leaves Monday at three,” she says. “I’m going to have to concentrate on my studies.”

“I know.”

The older woman comes and puts a plate of honeyed dessert in front of us.

This, what we have between us, is too good to just drop. But I don’t say anything. I don’t want to get up to bat and strike out amidst all this beauty. Long game. Don’t come on too strong. As Jenna might put it, wait for the right moment before you swing.

“We’ll enjoy tonight,” I say.

She takes a bite of the dessert and licks her fingers. “Absolutely.”

Synopsis
They’ve been hired to remodel a mansion. Will they end up getting a room?

Marisa Sanchez has grand designs for her future. After taking over her grandfather’s construction firm, the successful vlogger and civil engineer is about to take the next step with a new show on the Home Design Network. But she’s not pleased to find out she can only have the lucrative gig if she agrees to work with a handsome rival.

Levi Chance takes the responsibility of providing for his brothers seriously. So when his biggest client asks him to come into the spotlight to co-host a new program, he reluctantly accepts. But he fears the pretty, camera-loving partner he’s been assigned might bring his top-notch reputation tumbling down if she can’t deliver the goods.

Discovering her teammate is quite capable, Marisa battles her attraction to him as she ambitiously turns the project upside down. And the more Levi works with the smart Latina, the more he worries he’s about to push the “no sex” morality clause in their contract into forbidden territory.

Will Marisa and Levi’s fixer-upper turn into a happily together forever?

Renovated is the charming first book in the moving Chance Brothers contemporary romance series. If you like sparkling attractions, comedic moments, and steamy action, then you’ll love Nikki Kiley’s well-built romp.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt
“I recognize this is out of left field, but an opportunity came up. One of our power couple shows just announced their divorce—something to do with an au pair, and believe me, the situation has gotten hideous.”

I looked at Marisa. Her shoulders went rigid, her eyes turning sharp and assessing, hands fisted in her lap. Neither of us uttered a word, letting Rebecca have the stage.

“Marisa, I’ve been hitting a wall with pitching the show we originally spoke about. They didn’t think the target market would watch TV and become viewers, but if we made it another couple show with a twist __” her head tilted to us as if it was apparent what she meant.

Marisa’s back went ramrod straight where she perched on the chair.

She stammered in bewilderment. “Wait . . . you want us to partner up?” Her face filled with disbelief—and was that disgust I was seeing? “That was not the deal you gave me when you got in touch with me. What do I need Mr. Chance for?”

Rebecca responded like a parent explaining to a child why they can’t have dessert before eating their veggies. “The network always partners up with a construction company. The Chance Brothers have done most of the projects in this area for us. The decision to make this a show about two people working toward a common goal comes from above. It is a straightforward decision. It’s a yes or no situation. I’m hoping you both will take it since I see the potential, but it’s not just up to me.”

Working with a drama queen wasn’t on my wish list either, but I wasn’t getting into a pissing contest here. I was interested in seeing where this would go. Rebecca’s mother gave me my first break in the business when I did a gut job on their estate home on Star Island. Mrs. Walton monitored that project just like she ran the Home Network, ensuring I came in on budget and on time.

This time I directed myself to the Latin bombshell in front of me. “Ms. Sánchez, I am here to listen to what is on the table just as much as you. Besides writing about design and posting online about it, what have you done?”

Given her intake of breath, I knew I had hit a sore spot.

Synopsis
They say you should never make a deal with the devil, but what about with the Prince of the Underworld?

Fresh off a breakup and an eviction, I started my day like any other: a book in one hand, a coffee in the other, and faking that can-do attitude inspirational memes are made of. I was ready to take on the world—and I did.

Unfortunately, it was the Underworld.

One freak accident later, I’m standing face to face with the sexy-as-sin and dangerously powerful Prince of the Underworld. He has a few burning questions for me—like how a mere human unlocked the door to the Underworld’s prison and released its prisoners.

I’d sure as hell like to know, too, because I have no freaking clue.

Now, instead of a forgettable bookstore clerk, I’m newly famous for doing the impossible. The wrong people want to thank me, and the rest want me dead. Spoiler alert: The Dark Prince definitely doesn’t want to thank me.

I’ll do anything to get my life back to normal and he’ll do anything to recapture the escapees. We make a deal: He’ll keep my enemies at bay, and I’ll find a way to return the prisoners.

Excerpt
“I’ve been pulled into something that I definitely don’t want to be in, dealing with people I hope to never encounter again. I want it to be over. I want to have nothing to do with this situation or you dreadful people.” I lifted my hand, presenting the markings. “If working with you is the only way, then I’m in. If we are working together, no more threats. I don’t care how thinly veiled they are. You will not bully me. Are we clear?”

His expression changed but it was still indecipherable. Understanding? I don’t think that was it. Amusement? Definitely. Portentous? It better not be.

His lips curled slightly into a small, tight, mirthless smile. He looked over his shoulder at Anand who flashed a grin. “I’ve been commanded to behave,” Dominic said to him. The laughter in his voice made its way to his eyes.

“Little Luna.”

“It’s just Luna,” I shot back.

“Luna. You are correct. I want to find the person behind this, especially if it is a Dark Caster. I know their history and the chaos and destruction they enjoy. It needs to be stopped. And to do so, we will have to work together.”

I’d been abducted and attacked by a vampire, sniffed by a lion, interrogated by a witch, and nearly devoured—or whatever his intentions were—by a wolf. I had every right to be overly cautious and I didn’t like the subtle undertones in his response. A limited alliance.

Excerpt
Then the game starts. It’s three times more exciting watching from these seats than any other game I’ve ever seen. There’s a longer than usual break during the inning change, and I hear a chant of “Besar a la chica. Beso. Beso. Beso!” What? I look up at the huge screen on the side of the stadium and it’s displaying a close-up of me and Venom, larger than life, in a cartoon heart with the word ‘Beso’ at the bottom.

“Oh my God, we’re on a kiss cam?!!”

I look at Venom and he smiles.

“Argh! You planned this, didn’t you?”

Venom shakes his head.

“They zeroed in on you because you’re famous. Gaah! It’s you’re fault they’re all watching us.”

Venom slides his hand around the back of my neck and leans forward a little, and it’s all I can do not to back up.

“You gonna embarrass me in front of seventeen thousand people?”

“Maybe,” I whisper.

“Please don’t,” he whispers back. He applies gentle pressure to the back of my neck, pulling me to him. He looks down at my lips and swallows hard, his Adam’s apple bobbing. We lean closer to each other and a spike of nerves makes me jittery.

Then he kisses me.

The crowd roars.

Everything fades away as his warm lips slant over mine. I expect him to be bold and forceful but he’s gentle, almost timid as his lips press softly over mine. I groan into his mouth and he ups the intensity, but never tries to push. My heart leaps into my throat, and then it’s over.

Venom pulls back. We’re still on the big screen. I look stunned, well-fucked instead of fantastically-kissed. Venom smiles at the camera and waves sheepishly. Then the camera focuses on the field.

“You planned that! You freakin’ planned that.”

Venom shakes his head. “It would have been a great idea, but no. I didn’t even know they had that here.”

“They have that everywhere!” I whisper shout.

He shrugs again. Annoying.

The nice lady next to me puts her hand on my shoulder and gushes about how cute we are. When she’s finishes cooing she mumbles, “Such pretty man, you two will make such pretty babies.”

I feel sick.

Concentrate on the game. Go Toros. Hot Mexican guys in tight pants. Do not look at Venom.

Venom puts his arm over the back of my seat and I squint at him, blasting him with my ‘not interested’ look.

He smiles bigger. Could this guy be any more annoying?

I ignore him. This is easy to do because the game is exciting. Much faster than American games.

The lady next to us buys her whole family sodas and insists on buying us some too because we are ‘so adorable’.

I suck on an ice cube and try to calm down. The warmth from Venom’s arm is burning a hole in my upper back. He smells like churros, soap, a light cologne or deodorant that smells like a combination of Hugo Boss and cut grass. Under all that he’s some chemical bomb of musky male hotness. It’s unfair. I’m immune.

This isn’t a date. Dates lead to other things. Sexy things. Rock stars throwing you out like a disposable diaper, things. That would never work.

Excerpt #1
“I’ll tell you in exchange for something,” I bargain.

Rue squints at me warily.

“What?”

“I’ll tell you where we’re going and what we’re doing, if you give me a kiss.”

I hear Rue’s heartbeat speed up at these words. She might say she wants the omega as her mate, but her body is finely tuned to mine. Her tongue darts out to wet her lips, and I nearly groan at the sight. Her eyes are heavy-lidded, and she’s sending out all the right signals. She just needs to turn off her brain. I see her body war with her mind, and I know the moment her flesh wins. Her lithe frame becomes soft, and she leans in towards me.

“One kiss—that’s all.”

“One kiss,” I promise, leaning over.

“Well, not now!” Rue shrieks. “You’re driving!”

I chuckle at her outrage.

“Okay, when we get there, then.”

Exactly thirty seconds later, I stop the car.

“What are you doing?” she demands.

“We’re here—and I want my kiss.”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa! Backup, buddy! You’re not getting that smooch for free. You tell me where we are right now.”

Rue peers out her window into the night. She hasn’t admitted it, but I know she can’t see anything. I wish she would tell me more about why she’s not like a normal wolf, but trust will come with time. If I want her to confide in me, I need to respect Rue’s boundaries.

“We’re at my grandma’s house,” I finally confess, making her gasp.

“Your grandma’s house?!”

“I told you I was going to feed you homemade tortillas and margaritas. What better place than at my grandma’s where you can meet my family, too.”

“But—but—but—” she splutters, “we could’ve done this back at the mansion!”

“Nah. I only make tortillas and margaritas at my abuela’s. Do you not want to meet them?”

“It’s not that—it’s just this is like tenth date shit, ya know?”

“I’m working with only three and a half days, so I’m speeding things up,” I remind with a wink.

Rue snorts.

“I’d say. Well, don’t think you can just skip all the bases and go to home plate, mister!” she admonishes severely.

“I know that’s a sports analogy, but I don’t get it,” I admit.

Rue’s tinkling laugh dances around us, and I can sense her irritation at my date plan fading away.

“Not a human saying you know, huh? It means that first base is kissing, second base is er, feeling one another up… third base is—shit. You know what? I don’t even know what the bases really are anymore except for first and home. Everyone changes them, but first is always kissing and home plate is when you finally bump uglies. You know—”

“Yes, I know,” I cut in. “Humans make sports analogies for sex?”

“Yep.”

“Strange. If I promise not to shoot it in your hoop before you dribble my balls, can we just try a kiss?”

Rue clutches her stomach as she bends, giggling hysterically.

“That’s not a saying!” she wheezes.

“Well, how am I supposed to know which sports analogies work and don’t work?”

I get out of the car and walk over to her side. Smoothly, I open her door and pull her out to me.

“Now, about that kiss.”

Synopsis
What’s a girl to do when death is the worst and best thing that can happen to her?

Lily cares for three things above all else: nature, her father, and her best friend, Caiden.

Caiden isn’t the typical hot guy, but his eyes glow—sometimes literally—with a confidence and charm that make Lily’s heart flutter wildly.

When she kisses him for the first time, he disappears into a swirl of gold and silver that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Three months later, Caiden reappears to explain what happened and who he really is, but Lily is too angry to hear it.

She needs time to figure out her feelings, time she doesn’t have because she’s being hunted by death—Death Sentries who know the truth about her lineage and want her for gifts she doesn’t know she possesses. Those gifts in Death’s hands can shift the balance between life and death on Earth and cause mass destruction.

Now, Lily must protect herself against manipulative Sentries sent to capture her, decide if she can trust Caiden, and resist or give into the explosive attraction between them.

But when she learns the truth about Caiden and his original intent toward her, Lily’s head and heart go to war. Before long, she’s left to question if her life is worth protecting or if her father and the world are safer without her in it.

*For mature young adult readers and all ages above.

Excerpt #2
Thirty minutes had passed, and I hadn’t moved since Raysa left. I couldn’t stop thinking about Caiden and Bianca. I hated the jealousy brewing inside me over her being with him at the manor, while I was here, imprisoned. I couldn’t even go outside to relax.

I pulled off my robe to change but ended up scrutinizing my figure instead. I still wore the white lacy bra and panty set Raysa insisted I put on under the dress. They were pretty and, though I was no Victoria’s Secret model, the pieces did make me look almost curvy.

I glanced at my petite physique in the mirror and couldn’t believe my eyes. I moved closer to my reflection and zeroed in on my lips. They were fuchsia, but I didn’t have on lipstick. I grabbed a tissue and tried to wipe away the color, but it didn’t work. This close to my reflection, my eyes looked more lilac than blue, and my dark lashes had doubled in length. Assuming it was a goddess thing, but still a little freaked out, I dashed to the kitchen. My phone was on the counter and I wanted to ask Raysa what she thought.

When I passed through the family room, the front door swung open. I froze.

A dark figure entered the foyer and continued in my direction. Immediately, I thought of Dagan.

My heart raced as I ran for the stairs and my bedroom. I’d barely made it five steps when hands snagged me around the waist.

“No!” I tried to pry his fingers from my skin.

“It’s all right, Lily. It’s me.” Caiden pulled me against his chest.

I let out a breath and rested for a moment before I remembered that I was still in my bra and panties. “Close your eyes,” I ordered. “I’m not dressed.”

He chuckled. “You’re joking, right?”

“I’m not moving until you close your eyes.” At least, sandwiched against him, he couldn’t see my body. Not unless he craned his neck and blatantly stared down at me.

“Lily, it’s nothing I haven’t seen before. Remember?” His tone was silky and low.

“Remember that you peek? How could I forget? I won’t make that mistake ever again.” The feel of his warm hands flat against my stomach had me tight as a knot.

“Ever?” he whispered in my ear.

Shivers ran over my skin.

I jumped away and faced him. “Why are you here?”

His glittering eyes roamed my body, and a ray of gold flashed from his head to his feet. With his chin low, he peered up through dark lashes and inched toward me.

“What are you doing? Are you…losing it?” I backed up until I bumped into the wall.

He stopped in front of me. “Stay still.” He brushed my hair behind my shoulder and bent down to nuzzle his face in the crook of my neck. After a few deep breaths, he seemed to relax.

My body, however, did the opposite. My muscles coiled like springs. He was so warm and smelled so good. Unsure of what he was doing, but aware it wasn’t an attack, I closed my eyes and rested my head against the wall.

“I had to see you,” he breathed on my neck, his fingers lightly trailing up my arm. “Everything is right when you’re near.”

When Graham wakes up the next morning, everything has changed, and he’s the one who’s been dating Sarah for the past two years, not his best friend. Graham assumes the wish would have only come true if he and Sarah were meant to be together, but as it becomes clear that he and Sarah bring out the worst in each other, not the best, and as he starts to fall for the new girl in town, Graham wonders if some wishes come true in order to show us what’s not meant to be.

Synopsis
Welcome to Caldon, a land of mages and magic, where the noblesse possess massive political and magical power and destroy anyone who threatens the noblesse way of life—especially the commoners.

Rill Larkin, the son of a commoner blacksmith, has high ambitions. To be a mage, join the exalted ranks of the ruling noblesse, and establish his own noblesse family. Defying both the system and his family, Rill becomes the apprentice of Deuth Estati, a powerful archmage. But appearances deceive. As training progresses, Rill learns of decades-long secrets and manipulations that threaten his dream. And Deuth might not be as benevolent as Rill thought.

Alyse Dejune despises magic, even if she does belong to one of the oldest and most powerful noblesse families in Caldon. The deceits and treacheries of noblesse life and the loveless marriage alliances among the noblesse families disgust her. Her family however has high expectations: that she fulfill her role as a noblesse girl by marrying Troy Estati, an arrogant, selfish noblesse boy she does not love. And Alyse harbors a secret—the potential to become one of the most powerful mages in generations and wield forbidden magic—that, if revealed, could mean her death.

In this deadly game of ever-shifting alliances, where the state wages perpetual war against an ancient enemy, Rill and Alyse are thrown together in a land where magic is failing. And as greedy noblesse families raid surrounding family compounds for powerful charms, Rill and Alyse are left standing at a terrible crossroads.

Excerpt #2
Chapter 14
Charm Raid

A deafening explosion shook the back courtyard.

Alyse jerked into a sitting position in bed, her heart frozen and her mind whirling in confusion.

Kate’s connecting door with Alyse’s burst open. The meager flame from the finger lamp Kate held illuminated the sword and dagger buckled over her white cotton nightshift. “Get up! We’ve been attacked.”

Alyse scrambled out of bed, fear billowing up her throat, expanding with air until she almost choked.

Wild shouts, clangs of swords clashing, and voices crying in pain attacked her ears through the partially open window shutters. Alyse’s mind turned as blank as a parchment sheet. She strained to recall where she had put her dress. No! There wasn’t time to grab the dress because the cardinal rule had been drummed into her head since childhood. If the compound is attacked, go to the safe shelter immediately because even a moment’s delay could end with her death if the raiders quickly overwhelmed the family’s defenders.

Kate eased the door open and peeked into the family area.

Her heart hammering in her ears, Alyse peered over Kate’s shoulder.

Servants were racing through the family area lighting torches set in sconces along the walls to provide light for the defenders if the raiders should make it into the house. Backwatchers were sprinting toward the adults’ bedrooms on the side opposite Alyse’s to escort the other family members to the safe shelter.

The ring of sword against sword and ear-piercing cracks of spells and shouts of attackers and defenders moved into the peristyle garden just outside the family area.
Another blast shook the front courtyard.

“Come on!” Kate said.

They ran toward the dining room. Before they’d covered two spear lengths, the door to the garden burst inward with a deafening roar that made Alyse’s ears ring. A huge wood splinter whizzed by Alyse’s head as attackers charged into the family area.

“Back!” Kate cried. “Into the bedroom.”

They dashed inside. While Kate locked the door, Alyse closed and bolted the window shutters, then took the dagger from her dresser drawer and unsheathed the blade.

A sharp burst, followed by something crashing onto the floor. Booted feet pounded and swords clashed.

“Jade! Oh, Goddess—no! Help! Somebody, help!”

Alyse’s breath caught in her throat as she imagined her sister being hacked to pieces by the raiders. “Mora!” She charged toward the door.

Kate yanked her arm so fiercely that Alyse almost lost her footing. “We have to help ourselves.”

Shouting raiders raced past their door toward the receiving hall.

“Listen,” Kate said, her voice tight with urgency. “We don’t need to worry about the mages. They have to see their targets to cast spells. As for the bladeswomen, the door’s only wide enough to let in one or two at a time.”

Alyse’s nerves twitched as if they were being pricked by dozens of sharp-pointed pins. She gulped a deep breath that reached the bottom of her lungs, and nodded. She wouldn’t get out of this if she panicked.

Kate stoked the hearth to create a low flame, then drew her sword. “If they come in, let me do the fighting. Use your dagger only to defend yourself, and don’t hesitate to strike. Understand?”

Alyse’s fingers tightened around the dagger’s leather-wrapped grip. The weapon, puny though it was, gave her strength. “Yes.”

Kate extinguished the finger lamp. Alyse waited tensely in the shadows near the hearth while the sounds in Mora’s room subsided.

“The other’s in here.”

An earsplitting blast blew the door off its hinges.

A woman wielding a sword rushed over the shattered wood.

Kate cut her down.

A man and a woman leaped over the body. Kate met them face on, parrying their blades with both sword and dagger. The fight took them toward the sleeping alcove. Alyse beat down the urge to attack the raiders while their backs were to her.

A mage stepped over the body sprawled by the door. “Give me a clear cast!” he shouted.\

The two attackers split apart, exposing Kate to full view.

The mage pointed his staff at her.

Horror sealed off Alyse’s throat, threatening to choke her. Don’t hesitate. Kate’s injunction sliced through her brain like a knife cutting through bonds.

Alyse screamed and charged the mage.

Whirling, he swung the staff at her head.

Alyse ducked and plunged the dagger into his chest.

The mage dropped the staff and staggered backward.

Alyse scooped up the staff and smashed his skull with the orb.

He fell to the floor, dead.

Breathing hard, Alyse retrieved her dagger and turned toward the three shadowy figures battling. Part of her mind was mesmerized by Kate’s deadly skill—the first time she had ever seen her cousin fighting for real. The other part was terrified one of the raiders’ swords might slip through Kate’s guard because Kate was maneuvering to keep the attackers away from her.

A murky figure in the doorway blocked the torchlight from the family area. A bladeswoman holding a bloodstained sword.

Sage, when her dark side appears, describing her feeding: From his wanting mouth, I began to inhale his essence, his spirit. It was exhilarating and decadent. I was filled with what was flowing and still, energetic and peaceful, awe-inspiring and banal. The dichotomies fit like two puzzle pieces. There was not one without the other. This was the only moment that existed. It was completeness.
