I have a fantastic family, great best friends, a job I love…and now I’m up for a promotion to police sergeant. I need total focus—not a flirty, dirty, irresistible, tattooed hottie riding into my town on his motorcycle. Can I arrest him for being too good-looking? When he kisses me senseless in the back of a waffle truck, it’s criminal, the things he makes me think about hot syrup and melted butter. One order of hot, fluffy hookup to go, please.

But the next time I see him, it’s not for our date with benefits. He’s the guy who just rented the room above my garage.

I need the rent to pay my bills, not a man like Derek, who I soon discover to be strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… If I’m not careful, he’ll be moving into my heart as well as my house.

***

A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town, thank you very much. I’m coming off a bad relationship, and I have zero interest in anything serious. I’ve got all the serious I need helping my sister take care of her three little kids while her husband is deployed.

Except, surprise! Perri isn’t just my future fling. Turns out she’s my sexy, sassy landlord.

A lease definitely counts as “strings attached,” and as much as I’d like to get tangled in her sheets, I can’t let myself get tangled up in a relationship.

But as soon as we put the cuffs on our escapades, I learn over late-night conversations in the kitchen, that my landlord is so much more than the sexiest woman I’ve ever met– she has a quick mind and the biggest heart.

Once I’m in, I’m all in. And to convince her that we should see where this goes, I plan on turning up the heat—and not just in the kitchen.

EXCERPT

 
~PERRI~“Hey, officer. I think you might have been walking too fast through the market.”
The hairs on my neck stand on end. That gravelly, too-sexy-for-words tone delivers a wave of sensation across my skin.

It could only be Mr. Trouble.

With an avocado in hand, I turn around, and my eyes feast. How is it possible for him to be even hotter today? Is this a trick only the handsomest men can employ? The ability to multiply their good looks?

Somehow, maybe a trick of the light, he’s exponentially sexier in those shades, his gray T-shirt showing off swirls of ink, and jeans so well-worn they cling caressingly to his legs.

Lucky jeans.

But it’s his face, most of all, that draws me in as soon as he flicks off his glasses and I get a full dose of dark, soulful brown eyes full of naughty wishes.

Oh, wait. Maybe those are my naughty wishes reflected back at me.

Because I want him.

Do I ever. I want to climb him, rope my hands through his hair, and haul him in for a wild kiss.

Whoa.

That bout of desire was brought to you today by what-happens-when-lust-slams-into-you-like-a-freight-train.

“Gee, was I speed-walking?” I toss out, mainly to keep him standing there, because I’m mesmerized next by his tattoos. Sunbursts and tribal bands curl over his sinewy arms, and I’d like to like them. I’d like to know if he’s inked elsewhere and how far, or how low, the artwork on his body descends.

To his hips? The top of his ass? The V of his abs?

A woman can dream.

With a tilt of his head and a far-too-knowing grin, he answers, “Let me guess. You either didn’t realize it, or you have someplace real important to be?”

“So important. I have to…” I trail off then make my voice as husky as can be as I set down my avocado, “…make guacamole.”

“You don’t say,” he rasps, his low baritone caressing me all over. “I could help you with that, officer.”

“Are you Mr. Avocado Farmer?”

“I’m Mr. I Can Show You How Ripe They Are.” He steps into the booth, moving next to me, getting into my space.

Closer than he needs to be.

A tremble rolls over my shoulders as he crowds me. “Let’s see.” He strokes his neat beard, and I rein in a whimper. I want my hands on that scruff.

He studies the sea of avocados, reaching for one at last and then sliding even closer, so his shoulder touches mine. It’s the match to my kindling and strikes a fire inside me.

If anyone tried to tell me a woman doesn’t have a type, I’d call that person a liar.

I have a type, and the type lights me up from sea to shining sea.

He cups the fruit in his palm, then brings it near my chest. I draw a quick breath, then flick my hair off my shoulders.

“By the way,” he says, “I like your hair up, but I fucking love it down.”

Dead.

I am dead from desire.

Before I can reply—I’m honestly not sure I can form intelligible words—he rubs his other hand over the rind. “See, you want to find the one that’s ripe and”—he pauses and turns his face to meet my gaze, his dark eyes holding mine—“ready to eat.”

A shudder hijacks my body. “Is that so?”

I don’t need a tutorial in picking avocados. Please. I know how to pick them just fine.

But I want his lesson. Want to hear his voice. Watch those hands move. Feel him slide closer.

“It’ll feel slightly soft, and it’ll yield to just the right amount of gentle pressure.”

And that pressure builds between my legs, an insistent throb. “How do you tell if it’s enough pressure?”

He pushes a thumb against the flesh of the fruit, making a husky hum low in his throat. “Just like that. See how it responds?”

“How’s it responding?”

He turns, angling his body nearer to me, his dark eyes shining with desire as he roams them over my face, my hair, my breasts. “Just the way I like it.”

This man is going to ruin me in the best possible way.

While I don’t have the time or inclination for dating, dinners, or fitting someone into my very busy schedule, I’m pretty sure I could deal with a little ruination.

Yes, I could definitely do with getting ruined.

BITTER RIVAL by J. Sterling is LIVE!

BR - RB Banner.jpg

James Russo is enemy #1.

Hating him is in my blood.

Today we are delighted to be sharing New York Times bestselling author J. Sterling’s all-new forbidden romance, BITTER RIVAL

 

BitterRival_FrontCover_LoRes.jpg

Our families have been at war for generations; a bitter rivalry with no end in sight. All I’ve ever wanted to do was make wine, but one night with James will cost me everything.

I shouldn’t be attracted to him… but I am.

I definitely shouldn’t want to sleep with him… but I do.

Is following my heart worth the risk of losing my vineyard and my legacy?

Because in my family, there could be no greater betrayal than sleeping with the enemy.

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse at KFF

I’m so glad I’ve popped my J. Sterling cherry! And to top the lot, the topic she’d chosen was really easy to relate to as I do appreciate a good glass or three of vino! I live in wine country and have visited many bodegas, so her descriptive narrative not only helped me connect to her protagonists, but also gave me the feeling of being in their backyard…oops, vineyard.

This low-on-angst-light-hearted love story is addictive reading and before I even knew it, I’d finished the book. The story behind a family feud really intrigued me, but it’s wearing one member’s patience thin in particular. So, why has it been going on for such a long time you may ask. And for different reasons, why is it affecting the younger generation of viticulturists to the point that they can’t be seen together? Firstly, as it’s not made clear what happened until nearly the ending, my imagination ran away with me and what I thought was the cause for such animosity was way off the mark. Secondly, James and Julia’s fathers’ refusal to speak about it doesn’t help matters and a no fraternizing with the neighbours rule aggravates the whole situation even more.

Enemies, James and Julia definitely are, but hate is a word too strong to describe their self-same feelings. Problem is you’ve got to be able to see which way the wind blows in more ways than one before you can get your bearings, and that’s exactly what was done. Well, there’s no denying the attraction was there, but past events in their childhood made one of them apprehensive.

James is a lovely guy with a great sense of humour. Hard-working and like Julia, dedicated to the family business, a selfless act on his part makes her realise she could have been fighting a losing battle. A real tease, he also takes great pleasure in rubbing her up the wrong way. She always seemed to me to be on the defensive which only adds fuel to the fire.

More detail about how their wines reached perfection would have been nice but all in all, it’s a well-written story with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Steaminess abounds ladies, so get your fans ready, too! Want an easy-to-read standalone with great character development, then Bitter Rival is for you. Bravo Sterling!

About J. Sterling

My goal is to write books that you can get lost in and stories that will leave you with a smile and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real-life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relatable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and spending time with the love of my life, my very own second chance romance, who inspires me daily.

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.

GLASS CASTLE PRINCE by Nicole Williams is LIVE!


Today we are thrilled to be sharing Nicole Williams’ all-new contemporary romance,
GLASS CASTLE PRINCE

One-click your copy for the special release week price of ONLY $2.99!

 

A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.

Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.

That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.

They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .

One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .

Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape.

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

Just when you think the first book in this duet was tumultuous, along comes the second and blows Depraved out of the water. Delivered has a trigger warning for a reason. This author does not beat around the bush when it comes to hard topics. Pain and misery seep from the pages as if the very fibre of the book is bleeding with the characters.

We start back where Depraved finished and the stakes cannot be any higher for JD and Gabrielle. Destruction and loss are not just physical, they are physiological.
I cannot remember the last time I became so invested in characters at such an early stage of the book.

“It was all this. You trying to repair my soul.” 

The way this author spun the tale, I found my own morality was called into question. Topics that I wouldn’t consider before were up for grabs because of something I read and how it affected the protagonists and me. For long moments, I questioned the devil’s work. One character was so purely evil I’m sure he bled black, not red. It was this particular person who had me wondering if murder was an option and could you escape prosecution from it. I know I wouldn’t look good in an orange jumpsuit, that’s for sure.

Gabrielle discovers so many revelations. Some so hard to bear they nearly knocked the breath out of me! Through it all, she has JD by her side. Even when she’s in so much pain, she can’t bear to have any human kindness. JD never backs off he’s beyond persistent and I love that about him.

‘Oh, JD. You are so complicated, and yet so predictable. Your concern for me, your love, often emerges in twisted misshapen forms, shrouded by darkness, but it is always light at the centre. It’s what has always drawn me to you. Like a moth to a flame.’ 

I have one more point to make. Smith. That man is a danger to any human with ovaries, and it looks like he’s getting a book real soon. Eeek!

About Eva

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

Today we are so excited to be sharing Piper Rayne’s all-new contemporary romance,
ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE

 

What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.

How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…

Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.

Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.

Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.

Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.

Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.

If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

First impressions count, right? Poor Wyatt never stood a chance. Words do hurt more than stones, just ask Wyatt’s head. Last we saw Brooklyn Bailey, she was being left at the altar by her dirtbag fiancé. Douchey move for anyone to make but he did it in such a fashion that even I wanted to smack him. Lord help him if the Bailey brothers ever got hands on him, the authorities would never find the body!

From neighbours to lovers; a trope that I have struggled with for the longest time, this author knocked it out of the park and gave me one heck of an experience. Rayne is typically known for comedy and heat. This release does not disappoint in either of these two.

Tension and passion weave through the pages winding together Wyatt and Brooklyn, neither wanting to get into something serious. Frustration was a trusted companion through some of this one. Will they? Won’t they? Arrggh! Throw in meddling relatives and a father with a stick so firmly planted up high, you’ll catch my drift. Why oh why must people do what they do for other people and never themselves!

‘He doesn’t make it hard to enjoy the way he worships my body. His kisses are little morsels of admiration for my naked self. His groans are a self-confidence boost that assures me I’m what he wants.’ 

The Bailey clan have my heart, such a down to earth rabble family. I love them all. They all have such varying different characteristics and issues. Some authors fail at character building, these two do not.

‘“I’d love it if some chick came to tell me something while I was in the shower and she just pushed past the curtain and my back was turned as her hands slid around me and her wet body pressed to mine as her hands continued until they—OUCH!”
“Children,” Grandma says, looking around. “Not to mention, you can’t talk like in front of me, it’s disrespectful.”’
 

And who can forget the ending to this little gem? Those poor twins, I cannot wait for the next installment of The Buzzwheel.

Welcome back to Winston Isles, one and all. An island like no other that I know. Full of intrigue, mystery and conspiracies around every corner.

When last we saw Ariel, her life was going off script in a way she had never imagined.
New goals and new purposes were needed and her friends/family knew how to aid her. Off she went to rebuild her path. Meeting new people recommended for special reasons.
One of these people was Jax Reynolds who had once been on the same path as Ariel. Only he reversed course for very different reasons. A man of honour and respect, Jax is the kind of person anybody would want at their back.

Ariel has held a secret for so long I had given up hope of ever finding out what it was.
This secret; however, is not secret come the end of this book. Her cards are out and on full display. I am left pondering if Ariel will ever get her own book? I sure hope so.

If you haven’t read Teasing the Princess, what’s wrong with you? If you did, you would know how Ariel got to where she is. With a new business to run and clients banging down the door, help is a little short to find. Jax comes on board and is thrust into the role of Bodyguard/Manny. Why the role of both? Read the book and find out!

The client is a headstrong woman by the name of Neela. Her life was pretty uneventful before her longtime best friend dropped a bombshell basket in her lap, a basket that even a stalk would have trouble with. Neela tiptoes through her new pathway trying to adjust to all the changes, never expecting that her life would end up in danger.

Due to the way these characters inherently are, the build-up between them takes longer than most by this author. The end is in sight when they finally do the deed.

‘His lips were shocking soft. I don’t know what I had expected. Maybe that he’d be brutal, harsh. He was big, and he looked like he knew his way around a kiss. Like he knew his way around sex. He practically oozed it.’ 

Can they overcome the turbulence that is their newfound discoveries? Will Neela ever be safe? What did Willa hide and why leave it all to Neela?

I adore this author’s ability to stick to a method when it comes to creating a new book and characters. She never fails to draw in the readers and make it oh so worth the turmoil and pain.

 

#2 Tempting the Heiress – Release Date: April 9, 2019

One error in judgment. That is all it took.

They say don’t mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I’ve lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I’ll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don’t, it could cost both of us everything.

This is my first book by this author and I decided to jump in blind. I did not read the blurb because I wanted to be surprised and I definitely was.

Ezra is the local high school football and baseball coach, the town’s most eligible bachelor, he is quite the catch. He might be cocky but he has a heart of gold. His rapport with his pupils is top notch and he treats them equally. The day he knocked Raleigh off her feet and made her nose bleed will definitely change his life.

Raleigh is one of the new teachers in her local high school. She is a walking disaster, the queen of klutz and a frequent visitor in the ER. To say that she is clumsy is an understatement. She has had a long-standing crush on Ezra since they went to the same school but he never even knew she existed. She always felt invisible blending in the shadows but when she fell over and got a black eye and a nose bleed, she finally got Ezra’s attention.

Told in dual points of view, this contemporary romance is set in a small town where everybody knows everyone’s business. Raleigh’s mishaps and accidents were so legendary that I sometimes felt it was a borderline slapstick comedy. But the tender moments and steamy escapades between Ezra and Raleigh are swoon-worthy and although this romantic tale is meant to be light-hearted, there are some serious issues that were actually tackled in this book.

I am glad that Raleigh was able to connect and help out a bullied student. The way that Raleigh and Ezra addressed the bullying is inspiring and quite apt with what is happening in our schools today. The secondary characters especially Moira, Ezra’s little niece provided the comic relief; her innocent quips were hilarious it gave me some laugh-out-loud moments. Ezra and Raleigh’s romance does not only entertain, but is also inspiring and heart-warming. I am glad I got to read this book, Lani Lynn Vale is my new favourite and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.
