BECOMING WILDE, the second book in the adult contemporary romance series, Alex Wilde, by HK Jacobs is Out Now

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt
“I’m not sorry,” he said quietly, his voice calm but hard like a river stone.

She could imagine his emotions swirling around it like rapids, bubbling around its solidarity. Before she could respond, he continued.

“I’m not sorry for dragging you out of there and I would do it all over again. I will never support choices that put you in danger or hurt you or threaten you, so if that’s your expectation, I’ll never live up to it, and you should do us both a favor and walk away right now.”

At a different time in her life, Alex would have obeyed. The fear of rejection…the feeling of being unworthy of such love would have carried her out of the barn, slamming shut a physical and emotional door that she would have kept closed for an eternity. But she wasn’t the girl she once was. She was choosing to live a life that rose above her most basic fears.

Put on your phoenix wings, whispered her subconscious. She stood but didn’t make a move toward Ian, not even a gesture. Instead, she stayed perfectly still, breathing in the sweet smell of hay and elephant musk.

“I don’t always make the best…decisions. And I don’t expect you to like all of them, but there is one that I will never give up.”

“And what’s that?”

She sensed him steel himself for her answer.

“You.”

Synopsis
Magic always comes at a price…even for the Natura…

Being marked as the true bearer of the Fire element and the King of Blood isn’t enough to keep Lach Lennox from dying. Becoming a vampire can save him. But his potential sire wants something in return—her daughter’s freedom and guaranteed safety…until death do they part.

Rose Barclay has been entombed for so long she barely remembers what freedom felt like. So, now that she’s out, she’s not entirely sure what to do. Her mother would see her bound for all eternity to her royal rescuer. But no matter how attractive that option (and man) might be, Rose can’t help but wonder if she’d just be trading one prison for another.

Lach and Rose soon realize their purposes—and hearts—aren’t as far apart as they originally thought. But when Lach is forced to choose between love and duty to his people, he must face that his decision will not only doom him to an eternity of loneliness, but he’ll condemn Rose to the same fate…

Synopsis
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow returns with a steamy and electrifying standalone romance thriller where one ginormous protector goes all-in to win Miss Unlucky.

You know the drill. Big hands, big feet, humongous— Yikes. We’re not going there for the thousandth time. I’ve got small-town problems aplenty and zero time for Paxton “Alaska” Charter. Crushing on smokeshow men with caveman vibes can’t end well.

Sure, he saved my little coffee shop from total ruin once. Yes, my ovaries melt watching single dad of the century with his little boy. Of course, I’d sleep like a baby if I let him work his former SEAL hero magic on my mess. That’s not why I’m freaking out.

Nobody told me how devastatingly kind Alaska can be. Or the fact that his stubborn heart’s even more guarded than mine. If he comes barreling into my life, it’s certain doom. And it’s all thrown to the wind the day his kiss claims me.

We have to say goodbye. Right now. Before it’s too late. He can’t keep sheltering my body, stealing my heart, and igniting my soul. I won’t drag this gentle giant down my abyss of ugly secrets. But Alaska has other plans—and they scare me. Because they all involve impossible happily ever afters, no matter the cost.

Full-length small-town standalone romance heaven. The butterflies come in force when one large and in-charge single dad steps in to rescue the girl who abandoned all hope and forgot how to love.

Mood Board for NO GENTLE GIANT, a standalone adult contemporary romance, by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Nicole Snow

 —————————————————————————

Excerpt
Look, I’ve had a stressful few months. Years. Life.

I’m a little on edge, and a little emotionally raw.

But he saves me from having to fumble for words by turning a roguish smile on me, mock-squinting. “You, though. I’ve got my eye on you. I think you could be trouble.”

My laugh this time comes out weaker. “I wish that wasn’t true. I’m kind of a bad luck trap, Alaska.”

“Like an avalanche of coffee mugs?”

“Yep. Just like a mug storm.”

Another silence.

Another smile that makes my heart wobble.

Another long look from him, one that makes me wonder how he went from “coffee girl I vaguely recognize” to a sort of confidante in a matter of minutes. All over some smashed mugs and a cut on his knee.

But, hey, at least I’m not going to break down crying in front of a total stranger because he has mercy on me and changes the subject.

“So what’s the damage, lady? Give me all of it. Don’t forget the table, too.”

“We’ll forget the table. And the floor. Call it pain and injury compensation.” I smile wryly. “We’re at a cool eight hundred for the mugs, though. Manufacturer cost. I’m not charging you full retail.”

“You got it. I’d pay up now, but I’m not carrying eight hundred in cash around with me.” He cocks his head. “I’ll bring it by in the morning unless you want a check? Ladies’ choice.”

“No rush, but cash is fine.”

Too easy. Even if I’m already doubting the wisdom of keeping that much cash around here for more than a day or two, but that’s another problem I don’t want to think about right now.

So I stand, bracing my hands to my knees and levering up.

Of course, I forget not just how small my office is, but how much space Alaska occupies.

As I straighten and lift my head, I find myself practically eye to eye with him, and only because sitting on my desk knocked off like a foot from his titanic height.

I lock up, my heart crawling up my throat as I stare, barely an inch away from our noses touching.

This jittery little fantasy.

It’s not quite insta-love, but it’s bad.

If he didn’t still look so calm and unfazed, I’d probably dissolve into a stammering mess. But it’s like his inner chill stabilizes me, and I’m able to skitter back without tripping, clearing my throat and finding another smile in me.

Somewhere.

“Should we check on Eli?” I tilt my head toward the door. “Either he’s cleaned the whole shop by now or bailed.”

Alaska snorts. “He knows better, but yeah. He’s probably getting a little anxious out there.”

I sweep a mock-bow, pulling the door open for him. “Polar bears first.”

He throws back an evil eye over his shoulder.

“I’m gonna regret telling you that,” he grumbles.

“Oh my. Be still my heart.”
“Laugh out loud of epic proportions.”
“Loved it. Still laughing.”

Ruth “Ruthless” Harper is on the verge of becoming managing partner at her all-male consulting firm and she won’t let anything stand in her way. That includes men, relationships, and that dreaded F word, FEELINGS—distractions she eliminated long ago.

After the worst day ever (a near-death experience and a public wedgie, for starters), Ruth realizes she doesn’t want to live and die alone. She puts together a business plan to find the perfect man and dives head first into the murky online dating pool. All she wants is a high-powered executive who understands how important her career is. If only it were that easy.

Problem is most men are intimidated by Ruth’s confidence and shocked by her bluntness. The exception being her landscape designer, Nick, whose cool demeanor and unsolicited dating advice are driving her nuts. He’s the antithesis of the business-oriented man Ruth envisions for herself, so why do all signs keep pointing back to him?

A romantic comedy novel for the ages. Order now. Don’t delay. Operators are standing by.

Excerpt
RUTH

I have orchestrated multi-million dollar business deals and have butted heads with Fortune 500 CEOs and some of the biggest corporate lawyers in the country, but my biggest challenge by far was trying to remove a monster wedgie during my spinning class without the gorgeous guy behind me noticing.

Casually turning my head to the right, I checked my periphery, confident I looked like some halfwit who was thinking of changing lanes on a stationary bike.

I couldn’t tell if the man had his eyes focused on me or on the instructor in front of the class, but it didn’t matter at this point. I had real-world issues here and needed to solve the dilemma before my butt sucked all my clothes inside my body and turned me inside out.

With every revolution of my bike’s spinning wheel, the wedgie seemed determined to go deeper, like a burrowing squirrel who hadn’t found a suitable place for habitation.

I got up at five in the morning for this torture?

To make matters worse, the instructor—Manson, Mussolini, or whatever his name was—appeared to be on a mission to send us all into cardiac arrest. And don’t even get me started on the chafing from a bike seat that was obviously manufactured with materials excavated from the surface of Mars.

I needed a distraction for the extraction.

Glancing down at my water bottle in the drink holder, I came up with the perfect plan. I would wait for the instructor to get us up off our seats again for the next sprint, then drop my water bottle on the floor to create a ruckus.

If the man behind me was a gentleman—no wagers, please—he would get off his bike and get the water bottle for me, thus taking any attention away from my derrière long enough for me to perform the embarrassing and delicate wedgie-removing procedure without him seeing.

Ironically, the song changed to “Shake Your Booty” by KC and the Sunshine Band.

“Off your butts!” the instructor barked out like a psychotic sea lion with Tourette’s. “Take it up to level five for a sprint. Thirty seconds. Go! Go! Go!”

Perfect timing.

I slammed my water bottle to the floor behind me for the distraction.

It crashed against the back wall with a loud BOOM.

Never let it be said I did anything half-assed.

No pun intended.

I checked my periphery again to see if the guy fell for the trap.

Bingo.

He slowed his pedaling and glanced behind him at my bottle on the floor.

After he made a move to get off his bike, I lifted my butt off the seat, leaned forward on the handlebars, shifted all my body weight over to my left hand, and used my right hand to reach behind me and remove the mother of all wedgies.

Oh, no.

Completing the task was proving to be difficult since it was almost impossible to pedal while standing up on the bike with only one hand gripping the handlebars.

I used one finger, then two, then three, but still couldn’t dig out the wedgie that must have been halfway to China by now.

Losing confidence with every second that passed, I wobbled back and forth like the Elvis bobblehead doll on the dashboard of my dad’s 1977 Cadillac Coupe deVille.Things were heading south in a hurry.

There was a sharp pain in my left wrist.

My elbow buckled.

Timber!

The fall to the floor was not graceful.

I banged my shoulder on the handlebars on the way down, slid off the bike sideways, and hooked my foot on top of the pedal. My other leg flew over my head and got wedged in between the bike seat and the drink holder.

Great.

Now, I had two wedgies.

Before I had a chance to untangle and upright myself, two hands gripped me from under my armpits and lifted me to my feet in one swift motion.

I looked up, dazed, confused, blinking a few times.

It was the guy who had been on the bike behind me. “Are you okay?”

There was genuine concern in his voice, but I was a big girl and could take care of myself.

Flustered, I said the first thing I could think of. “I do that all the time.”

A smile tugged at the corner of his lips. “Of course.”

Synopsis
If you’ve gotta be stuck in a curse with monsters—they might as well be sexy monsters.

When I answered an ad for a caretaker at Saint Mark’s Sanctuary I thought I’d be dusting chandeliers and polishing floors. I didn’t expect to be tricked into a curse, going in debt to a monster, and being forced to take a self-paced “Let’s Learn Magic” course so I can fix a two-thousand-year-old problem.

And that monster? Not your ordinary, everyday beast. He has hooves, and horns, and fur on his legs. But ya know where he doesn’t have fur? Yeah. There. Which is fine. Except he doesn’t wear pants.

Nothing at Saint Mark’s is exactly what it seems. The entire inside is magic, the hallways upstairs are nothing but parties from the past, and the super-hot guy who lives in the dungeon? Yeah. Not human.

My name is Pie and all I want is to be a normal girl with an average life. I refuse to get stuck in this curse. I refuse to learn magic to break it. And there is no way in hell I will fall in love with a monster.

Famous. Last. Words.

One engagement can save two reputations… if they can keep their hands off each other.

Skylar’s father (her boss) invites her to spend Thanksgiving weekend with his entire family in Vermont, and he won’t take no for an answer. She has no clue how she will get through four days under the same roof with the sexy, arrogant Skylar. Then she discovers they expect her to share a room with her fiancé. Now what?

With her job on the line, will she also be willing to risk her heart?

Excerpt #2
Another problem with the proposed charade hit her. “Wait a second.” They both stopped pacing and faced each other. “No one is going to believe we’re in love. Lack of chemistry. You can’t fake attraction.”

His eyes slowly narrowed. “How do you know we don’t have chemistry? We haven’t given it a shot.”

“What do you mean?”

“In three years we’ve barely looked at each other and haven’t exchanged more than ten words. Before we abort the mission, perhaps we should test it out.”

The butterflies in her stomach grew into vultures. “T-test it how?”

He lightly pinched her chin between his thumb and finger, lifting her face until their eyes met and held. His intent became obvious. Skylar Griffin was about to kiss her. Although she had fantasized about being in his arms at least a dozen times, she didn’t want to go through with it. Reality was never as good as the fantasy. What if he was a bad kisser? Maybe he used too much tongue or opened his mouth too wide or slobbered.

Silently, she began to count all the reasons not to fake an engagement.

They didn’t know each other well enough to make it convincing; she didn’t want to spend time with him; he was the son of a senior partner; she’d lose her job if they got caught in the lie.

He stared deep into her eyes, forcing her to do the same, and she was instantly lost in his beautiful baby blues. Her mind went blank. What had she been thinking about? She was sure it had been important, but she couldn’t remember a thing.

Her eyes drifted shut as he lowered his head.

His lips brushed over hers briefly, just enough to make her want more. A taste of sunshine and a warm ocean breeze swept through her. She could practically feel the sand between her toes. His hands slid beneath her hair to cup her head before kissing her again. The second kiss lasted longer. She melted against him as he grew bolder.

With her arms flat beside her on the first kiss, each one following urged her to touch him. Her hands moved up to rest on his solid chest of their own accord. Passion ignited and she lost control. His lips teased hers without mercy. He deepened the kiss, taking her to new heights. His arms wrapped around her waist as she wound hers around his neck.

The elevator moved.

It took a moment for them to realize what was happening. The truth dawned on them at the same time, and they simultaneously moved apart, both gasping for breath. Any second the door would slide open, revealing what appeared to be two lovers caught in a passionate clinch at work. Another button on her blouse had come undone. She fixed it while gesturing to his shirt. Her cheeks flamed hot as he tucked the shirt back into his pants. During their kissing frenzy, she had pulled the hem free, tugging on his clothes without giving it a thought.

The elevator shuddered to a stop on their floor.

He grinned at her. “Don’t worry about them believing us. You should see yourself. Lips puffy and smudged, hair messy, wrinkled clothing, they’d have to be blind to miss the signs. You look like a woman who has been in her lover’s arms.”

Blushing furiously, she knew he was right. Her hand went to her hair to fix it, but he caught her fingers in his. The door slid open. He refused to release her hand. Instead, he lifted it to his mouth and placed a kiss on the inside of her wrist.

She looked at the hallway nervously, sure there would be witnesses. No one was there. He had wasted the affectionate gesture. Her heart fluttered, and the reasons for not going along with his plan returned. Before she could voice her objections he was pulling her in the direction of the conference room.

About the Author
Kasi Blake learned that writing was her superpower when she was in the third grade. The teacher asked the students to write a short (one-page) story about a pet monster for Halloween. She heard the other kids all saying they were doing vampires and werewolves, so she chose to write about a pet mummy. Her story made the entire classroom erupt with laughter. That’s when she realized words had power. Then when she was in high school she had to write a short story for a class and put it off until the last minute. While talking to friends that morning, she scribbled it out and handed it in. The teacher thought she’d plagiarized it. That’s how good he thought it was, but her friends backed her up. Later in college, her writing ability saved her from a bad grade in history. It was a writing-intensive course.

What’s your superpower?

Magic always comes at a price…even for the Natura…

Being marked as the true bearer of the Fire element and the King of Blood isn’t enough to keep Lach Lennox from dying. Becoming a vampire can save him. But his potential sire wants something in return—her daughter’s freedom and guaranteed safety…until death do they part.

Rose Barclay has been entombed for so long she barely remembers what freedom felt like. So, now that she’s out, she’s not entirely sure what to do. Her mother would see her bound for all eternity to her royal rescuer. But no matter how attractive that option (and man) might be, Rose can’t help but wonder if she’d just be trading one prison for another.

Lach and Rose soon realize their purposes—and hearts—aren’t as far apart as they originally thought. But when Lach is forced to choose between love and duty to his people, he must face that his decision will not only doom him to an eternity of loneliness, but he’ll condemn Rose to the same fate…

Excerpt #3
“You’ve come a long way from that run-down apartment, Tyson Rainier.” I beamed, proud of him as we walked through the grand entryway into the open-plan living/dining/kitchen revealing a wall of glass overlooking the entire city skyline including the landmark we had spent the evening in. “Wow, just wow!”

“I guess so.” Ty seemed a little reserved about the house. “Are you thirsty? I don’t drink anymore, but I probably have some wine somewhere.”

“No, I’d rather have some tea if you have it.” I sat at a stool at the expansive granite island in his pristine chef’s kitchen, and my stomach growled embarrassingly loud.

“What’s a singer without tea?” He laughed and put the kettle on. “You’re hungry. I’ll cook something for us.”

“No, I’m fine.” My stomach protested with another growl and Ty arched a brow.

“Let me put my line cook skills to the test, I can make us grilled cheese sandwiches.” Ty opened the double-sized fridge and took out some cheese and pulled a loaf of bread out of a drawer.

“I guess my belly can’t say no to a hot guy cooking.” I nervously tried to cover up my anxiousness with sass.

“I’ll just be a minute. Please go sit down and make yourself comfortable, that couch is fucking amazing and the view is something I never get tired of.” Ty busied himself with the sandwiches as he waved me over to the living area.

I crossed over to the living room, taking in the dark hardwood floors, plush, oversized gray couch, and the gold and platinum records decorating the walls. Sinking into the cushions, I looked out at the city, my mouth watering at the smell of melting cheese. God, was I really here alone with Ty at his house? My heart had been beating fast all night with adrenaline, and now it was in overdrive. Despite how incredibly comfortable the couch was, I couldn’t stop fidgeting and ended up sitting on the edge of the cushion watching Ty cook.

“Here you go.” Ty walked over and handed me my tea and grilled cheese, then went back to the kitchen to retrieve his and plopped down next to me, blowing on his own cup. “So, you’re here.”

“I am.” I blew on my tea too, looking up at him over the cup.

“I’m so fucking nervous.” His cheeks reddened adorably.

“Me too.” I blew out a breath that I didn’t realize I’d been holding.

“Should we talk?” he asked.

“I guess we should.”

“Eat first?” He motioned to the sandwich.

“Yum.” I took the plate and nibbled at the sandwich, licking the dripping cheese from my lips.

Ty stared at my tongue flicking against my lips, his mouth curved into a grin and then expanded into a bigger smile. I couldn’t help but let out a burst of anxious laughter. He let out a guffaw, and we just laughed for a few minutes, which broke the tension completely.

When our chuckling subsided, Ty’s expression changed, like he was hungry for something more than a sandwich. I swallowed and licked my lips again; his eyes followed my tongue, almost enraptured. The sexual tension was crackling between us and I put down the sandwich on the coffee table.

Ty set his empty plate down and sank back into the cushions. His arm skimmed the top of the couch. Resting his head on one hand, he reached over to trace my lips with his finger then caressed my cheek with his whole palm.

“You’re still the sweetest and most beautiful woman in the world, Zoey. I’m not proud of how I behaved over the years, I haven’t been a good man. An honorable man. I’m not sure what to say to you, other than you were right to leave me back then,” Ty said solemnly. “I would’ve been such a disappointment.”

“Oh, Ty, that’s not true. You made it against all of the odds. But, as I’ve said before, how I handled things will always be the biggest regret of my life.” I looked down at the cushion, unable to look him in the eye. “I’m so, so sorry.”

“Zoey.” Ty had other ideas and tipped his finger under my chin to make me look at him.

“Don’t you think we could have made it?” I asked the question I’d asked myself every day for eight years.

Excerpt #2
Then Nikolai felt it: the air pulling tight, like the bowstring of an arrow drawn back, about to be let loose. Nikolai clenched the wooden arms of his chair. This was magic capable of much worse than a 6.5 earthquake and one injury. He braced himself in the case of a quake, scanning down the rows in front of him for any sign of a magician at work.

There were too many people, and all of them could be crushed to death if the building collapsed. This was exactly what he wanted to avoid. If he stopped the magician before the magic spiraled out of control, he could limit the amount of casualties.

Then the lights went out. Everyone was plunged into a deep darkness. There was a pause for a beat before a worried murmur took over the class. Cell phone lights flashed around the room. Nikolai knew this was the moment he could strike; his aim with the knife would be deadly. If only he had a target.

Almost as soon as the pressure in the air started, it faded away. Nikolai felt the charged air around the room recoil and disappear, vanishing like mist. The lights flickered back on. Immediately he tried to identify the source, but it was impossible with everyone looking around, talking in hushed voices while their spineless professor tried to calm the students. The class began to settle once more, though a lot of students quickly packed their belongings to leave. Maybe they could feel it, the unsettling shift in the air. Or smell the burnt ozone.

It was strange, though. He never experienced anything quite like this. When magic was built up to that strength and caliber, it typically rampaged into mass destruction. This was something else. This magician was nothing like the others he’d taken down in the past.

Synopsis
Penny is an ugly princess born to a family known for its beautiful offspring. To protect the royal bloodline’s reputation, the king proclaims her dead since birth and locks her away in the castle cellar.

But unbeknown to most, including herself, Penny has a gift: she can see the darkness within one’s mind through touch.

Everett is a dragon prince whose land is plagued by a deadly sickness in the form of black mist, capable of turning any fairy being it touches into stone. He comes to Penny’s kingdom seeking the one princess foretold to end the darkness.

The choice is clear, it’s either Penny’s cynical eldest sister, Tatiana, or her kind elder sister, Sarah, because Penny does not exist, not officially. But a twist of fate and Penny’s gift bring her to Everett’s attention, and she takes on a secret identity to aid him to trace the origin of the black mist.

What follows is a journey into a dark magical world within the minds of the corrupt, ruled by demons that plague on the dark aspects of the human psyche.

With the clock fast ticking, the prince must discover who the chosen one is in order to defeat the black mist before it turns him to stone and spreads to the rest of the world. But there are those who will do anything to keep Penny’s identity hidden.

Excerpt #2
The noises of the tavern drained away, and a gloom fell over the place. It reminded her of what happened at Marvin’s store. She was back in the Eternal, though, this time, she was at the tavern. All the people around her had frozen. She walked across the still crowd and saw Everett protecting Sarah from several Brutes. The other dragon warriors were busy keeping any hostiles from getting near Tatiana, who was lying on the ground. She had one eye slightly open to peek at her surroundings. It was pretty obvious she was faking unconsciousness.

When all seemed still and quiet, she caught sight of something stirring in the darkness of the tavern’s interior. Black mist! It was dripping from the ceiling, rising from the floor. Mist from different spots rushed to the center of the tavern and merged. Something grotesque was forming from it. Penny quickly hid behind the tavern counter and observed the transformation. A wolf took shape, only this time it was nearly thrice as large as the previous one.

Was this new mist form a manifestation of the head Brute’s anger? If it was, it was a clear indication of how much it had grown. Could this huge wolf be the cause of the mist, and defeating it would destroy the mist altogether? There was only one way to find out.

Penny readied herself. She checked her feet and saw the shiny red shoes were back. She peered out from the side of the counter, but the wolf was no longer at where it had stood. Carefully, she emerged and took cover under a table. Bit by bit, she advanced closer and closer. She needed to be close enough to open the portal and bring it to reality.

“Penny, you can do this!” As she moved to the next table, the wolf turned wildly with its eyes fixed on Penny.

She put out her hand and a fireball shot out, hitting the back of the wolf. Its bellow shook the tavern. More fireballs hit the body of the wolf, but they only made the demon angrier. It leaped and crashed down on the tables before Penny.

It sank its terrifying misty black fangs into the table, concealing Penny and crushing it into debris. Penny ducked away in time. She was then lying on the floor as the wolf turned toward its attacker. Penny willed her mind and conjured as much power as she could, igniting blast after blast. The wolf roared as the fiery magic engulfed its front body.

She got back on her feet and backed away, but the wolf clawed at her, slashing her shoulder. Penny suddenly felt drained, wincing at the searing pain in her shoulder. That voice, she heard it before. It was the most familiar voice; it was hers. Immense rage came flooding through her all of a sudden. Thoughts of her staring into the mirror at her ugly reflection and trapped inside a cell rushed into her mind.

The wolf closed in as she crawled away and hid beneath another table. The wolf clawed under the table, barely missing her as she moved out of range. She tried to conjure magic, but every blow she delivered hit the wrong places and missed its target.

“What’s going on?” It was like her magic was malfunctioning. It must have something to do with her getting slashed by the wolf’s claw. She was going to die if she didn’t find a way out.

The wolf smashed the table to pieces. She had nowhere to go, nowhere to hide. The wolf’s snout was before her. Anytime now it’s going to devour her.

She struggled and gathered her thoughts, focusing instead on the happiest memory buried within her. She closed her eyes. The wolf’s mouth closed in, ready to consume its helpless prey.

Synopsis
Megan is nerdier than all of the characters on The Big Bang Theory combined. But it’s a fabulous form of revenge that the same traits she was tormented for in high school have helped her land her dream job as a science journalist in New York and her dream apartment with fellow nerd, Josh, who is potentially her dream guy. The only problem is Josh’s brother, Brandon, is constantly around blocking any attempts to create a romantic atmosphere. Megan nurses an oversized grudge against jocks due to a past traumatic experience. The fact that Brandon’s a professional football player whose new favorite sport is mocking her only increases her fantasies of feeding him to a giant carnivorous plant.

Brandon’s life might look perfect, but he’s got a massive hang-up about his intelligence, a hang-up which is aggravated by all the verbal sparring with Josh’s new roommate. Even worse, it appears Science Barbie is falling for his deeply closeted brother. Why does he care so much about preventing the impending disaster? But the more time he spends with Megan, the more he realizes the sparks between them have the potential to ignite into something amazing.

Excerpt #2
“Come on.” I get to my feet and reach down, offering her my hand.

She looks suspiciously at it, like it’s a viper about to make a quick dinner of her flesh. “Where do you want to go?” she asks.

“Come dance with me.”

“I suck at dancing.”

“So what? I’m good enough for both of us.”

She rolls her eyes.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so grateful to see an eye roll in my life. “And you don’t know anyone here. Who cares if you look stupid?” I continue.

“I kind of care,” she says quietly. But she takes my hand, and I pull her to her feet. Her hand is soft in mine. She withdraws it quickly, but obediently follows me across the lawn and up the porch steps.

Inside, I find us an empty space on the edge of the dance floor. The band is playing a decent version of Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl, so I find my groove quickly.

Megan finds her groove too, but it’s not a smoothly worn one—more a rough stutter. She was right. She’s a terrible dancer. She shuffles her feet from side to side in what is a spot-on imitation of awkward middle-school boys.

“You need to loosen up,” I say.

Megan starts flopping her arms and legs around like they have no bones. “Is this loose enough?”

“Almost.”

“I never know what to do with my arms,” she confesses as she pulls them rigidly by her side.

“When in doubt, go for a set move.”

She eyes me skeptically. “Like what?”\

“Like the swimmer.” I start doing breaststroke actions.

Megan’s face folds into a smile.

Spurred on, I continue, “If you need to vary it up a bit you can always go for the snorkel move.”

I put my hand on my nose and shimmy down in a perfect snorkel.

“So that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years. I haven’t been getting my dance tips from The Little Mermaid,” she says, straight-faced.

“It’s a serious mistake. The Little Mermaid musical numbers rock,” I deadpan back.

Which leads us to a whole new game of trying to come up with under-the-sea dance moves.

Megan invents the Octopus, which involves wildly flailing limbs. I almost double over, I’m laughing so hard.

I reply with the shark, holding my palms pressed together on top of my head, humming the theme song to Jaws. Dum-dum. Dum-dum.

Megan shakes her head at me. “How do you still manage to look coordinated when you’re doing something so stupid? You just can’t do uncoordinated, can you?”

“It’s a curse I have to bear,” I say.

A slow song comes on. Ed Sheeran’s singing about loving someone until they’re seventy. Megan stops dancing and looks suspiciously at me.

“Come here.” I grab her hand and pull her toward me.

“What’s this move called?” She takes a reluctant step, putting one hand tentatively on my shoulder and the other on my waist.
“This is called the limpet,” I say as I tug her closer.
I feel her laugh vibrating against my chest.
We shuffle around the dance floor as Ed croons about how people fall in love in mysterious ways. And I discover having Megan’s feet so close to mine is actually hazardous.
“Sorry,” she mutters when she treads on my toes.
“That’s okay, I didn’t need that foot. I have a spare one.”
She pulls back to look at me, her lips quirking in a smile. “Um, you’re a professional athlete. I’m pretty sure you need both your feet.”
“Let’s not start arguing about the merits of professional sport right now, okay?”
I’m expecting her to argue, but instead she just shrugs. “Okay.”
She rests her head back against my chest, and I catch a whiff of her perfume. I’m right, it’s vanilla, but there is something else floral in there as well, along with a sharply sweet smell of hairspray. Suddenly I’m concerned about what she’s hearing in my chest, because I’m fairly sure my heart is thudding like I’ve got a killer whale bearing down on me.
Shit. As long as the action doesn’t spread to my groin we’re all good.
But I’m quickly aware there are no guarantees. Because there’s something about holding Megan this close that is stirring stuff throughout my body. My fingers are lightly touching her at the curve of her waist, and I can feel the heat of her skin through her dress.
Having her in my arms like this, something clicks perfectly into place. The closest I’ve ever felt to this has come on the football field, when I’ve thrown the perfect pass, the type that cuts through the air like a blade and lands with a satisfying thud in the hands of the receiver.
I look down at her. My gaze snags on the little patch of bare skin behind her ear. I have a sudden urge to press my lips to it.
My breath catches in my throat.
She pulls back and raises her eyes to mine, a half smile on her face. Whatever she sees on my face causes her smile to fade.
She stares at me, her blue eyes impossibly wide, her lips partially open. Her bottom lip is pink and full and inviting.
It would be so easy to lower my mouth to hers, to kiss her.
I take a deep breath. She’s vulnerable. She’s just had whatever hopes she had about my little brother dashed tonight. I can’t kiss her now. It would potentially be taking advantage of her emotional state and I never, ever want to be that guy.
But damn, there’s no denying I want to kiss her.
I release her and step back, running my hands through my hair. I immediately feel the absence of her body pressed up against me. It’s like stepping from a warm room into a cold freezer.
“Uh, I should call it a night.”
Megan stands there blinking like she’s woken up from a dream.
“Um…yeah. You do need your beauty sleep,” she says finally.
For a moment we stare at each other. Her brow is furrowed, like she’s trying to make sense of what just happened.
“Goodnight.” I do a pivot my coach would be proud of, stalking away through the table and chairs. I need to get as far away as possible, so I’m not tempted to go back.

Synopsis
People say I’m smart.

Probably because I have a PhD in astrophysics and am on the cusp of publishing a theory that just might change our perception of the known universe.

The verdict, however, is still out for me.

After all, I fell for a colleague who broke my heart and then stole the grant money from the Camella Franklin Foundation that had been funding my research. Did I mention he’s also engaged to Camella Franklin?

Then the gorgeous and charming billionaire Colin Fitzgerald came to me with a proposal that might just change my life.

A marriage in name only in return for the grant money needed to fund my research.

Marrying a hot billionaire wouldn’t be so bad, right?

Except that from the moment I laid eyes on the guy, it felt like the stars had aligned and I had actually met my destiny. He, on the other hand, had been totally in love with my best friend.

But, as people say, I’m smart. I wouldn’t do anything so foolish as to fall in love with my fake husband.

Like I said…the verdict is still out.

Excerpt
“Are you having a party?” he asked, sounding equally stunned and impressed.

“I felt that it was a shame for Holly to miss out on her bachelorette party, so I threw this together,” Katrina said.

“Without my knowledge,” I added in case he was getting the impression I was something of a party girl.

“I’m sure it was,” he said. “Ladies, I’m deeply grateful that you’ve given my beautiful new bride a much deserved soiree.”

“Aww,” a few echoed as they stood smiling at the two of us, almost as if waiting for something more.

Colin was a bit quicker as he came to my side, wrapping an arm around my waist. He flipped the feathers of my boa and smiled at me. “I like this look. You definitely should wear it more.”

He couldn’t look at me like that, all warm and happy to see me. It was making my stomach twist into all kinds of knots.

Especially as everyone was still staring at us.

“Oh, go on, you two. Kiss each other already. You know you want to. Probably as much as we want to see it,” Katrina added gleefully.

Why was I friends with Katrina again?

“Come on. Don’t disappoint us,” Julia followed.

“Kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss,” became the new drunken rallying cry as my former friends chanted, pumping their hands in unison.

“It seems to be the consensus of the room that we kiss,” he said low enough that only I could hear him.

“We probably should get it over with,” I whispered back, glancing nervously over my shoulders at the chanters.

“As you wish,” he said, and highly aware of our audience’s attention, he tightened his hold on my waist and brought me soundly against him before pressing those beautiful lips against mine.

All the air in my lungs escaped me while I reeled from the feeling of his mouth on mine, from the taste of him, so dangerously dark and masculine, from his heady scent of leather and spice that wrapped around me as tightly as his arm. My eyes fluttered shut, permanently branding this moment forever on my brain.

I was so caught up in the feeling of this magical kiss that I almost managed to block out the hollers and screams of the women, who were sounding quite pleased with our performance. But the sound of a doorbell ringing, and then ringing again, was too much to ignore, and I reluctantly opened my eyes to find Colin staring intently at me, his usual smile gone.

“I probably should go get the door,” I said and pulled away from him, already missing the warmth of his body. His mouth. His everything.

“No. Wait,” Katrina said, heading me off as I was almost at the front door. “It’s probably just my final present for you. Go ahead and take a seat.”

The front door was blocked off from our view as we trailed into the living room and waited as Katrina greeted our late arrivals.

Two police officers in dark clothing came around the corner and my stomach dropped in fear. “Sorry, but we had a noise complaint from one of your neighbors,” the shorter of the two said.

Colin stepped forward. “We’re terribly sorry, officers. We’d be happy to—”

But two things happened at the same time that stopped him mid-sentence.

One, the Beyoncé song that had been playing before was replaced with a darker, more overtly sexy song that I immediately recognized as “Candy Shop,” a song that Katrina played constantly in the car and knew pretty much every word to.

Second—and more alarming—was the sight of both cops unbuttoning their shirts.

My mouth dropped open. No. Freaking. Way.

The drunken catcalls from my usually austere and quiet coworkers were immediate as they retrieved dollars from their jackets and purses, obviously in on the surprise.

But the attention of one cop in particular was on me—no thanks to the bright pink tiara and boa proclaiming me the bride—and he slowly grinded his way over, and before I could blink, he whipped his pants off, dressed now in the tiniest black G-string that didn’t leave anything to the imagination.

Flames of embarrassment torched my face as I fought the urge to hide under a couch cushion.

Katrina was dead meat.

“And with that, I believe I’ll retire for the night and leave you all to your fun,” Colin said, stepping away. “Good night, ladies. Good night, Holly,” he added before winking at me, then left the room.

Correct that. Katrina was not just dead meat. She was roadkill that I ran over and backed up and hit two more times before skinning her and feeding her to the wolves dead meat.

I might never be able to face my husband again.

Excerpt
At about 2:19 a.m. I finally fall asleep. At around 3:30 there’s a soft knock on my door. I’m fully awake in an instant. Remembering how Lexi needed me when water was dripping on her head, I jump up, run to the door and throw it open.

“Lexi, what’s wrong!” I put my hands on the side of her face. I search her expression, which seems, I don’t know, slightly scared, worried. Which makes me worried.

“Lexi, what is it?” I ask.

But she doesn’t say anything. She just stares up at me. She’s wearing a short, silk burgundy-colored robe I’ve never seen before.

“Lexi, what is it?” I ask again. “What do you need?”

“You,” she says.

I blink. I stare down at her, and my brain refuses to understand. My tongue plasters to the roof of my mouth. Lexi reaches up and touches my biceps, and the spell that has me frozen is temporarily broken.

“Ryder? Ryder, say something.”

I blink again.

“Lexi. I’m not sure what you mean. I’m right here.”

Her voice is soft. So soft I have to bend down a little to hear her. I’ve been playing drums long enough that I have a bit of hearing loss.

“I can’t sleep without you. I haven’t been able to sleep since Detroit.”

I straighten up. “Sure you have,” I say like an idiot. “You don’t toss and turn. You don’t get up.” I think of myself, the hours I spend staring at the ceiling of my own bunk.

“But I don’t really sleep, not well. Not deep sleep. Not like I slept when I was with you.”

Lexi takes a step closer, and the smell of bursting orange blossoms wafts up.

“Ryder…” she says softly.

She opens the sash of her robe, and it reveals a mostly see-through, burgundy-tinted babydoll nightgown that barely reaches the top of her thighs.

Fuuuuuuck.

I groan.

“Lexi, we can’t.”

She closes that last inch between us and plants a tiny kiss on my chest. The barest of touches.

And I snap.

I grab her, haul her up my body, and smash our lips together. In two giants steps I’ve got her pressed against the wall, her legs wrapped around me, all the pent-up need and want I’ve been so good at keeping caged in, tethered, is pulsing out into her. I fist her hair, tilt her head, and plunder her mouth.

Fuck. God. She tastes so good. Incredible. God. Fuck.

“Lex…” I say as I break away.

“More,” she breathes.

“We shouldn’t,” I manage.

“Right,” she says, but then she kisses me again, and fuck, I don’t give a damn, because, yes, this is Lexi, and all I can think about is tasting her again, more, yes. How soft her tongue is and how out of control I am. I carry her to the bed and part of me tries to reel it in, take it slow, but I don’t want to. Not even a little.

I want to devour her. Every single inch.

Lexi. My Lexi.

Yes.

Then I’m on top of her and nothing has ever felt more right in the whole world. The blood is pounding in my ears, and I kiss down her neck and then my hands are on her breasts, God, her breasts. I can’t think, everything becomes a haze of pure lust, heat, a throbbing sound of need, the contrast between hard and soft, and the perfection of our rhythm together.

I manage to break for a second. “Lex, are you sure?”

“So sure.”
