BLURB:

This Dom’s life is turned upside down when he agrees to enter into a modern-day marriage of convenience with a woman who’s sassy and vanilla.

Only problem?

She’s not vanilla. And the side of sassy she comes with is sure to get them both into trouble when he finds out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

One deep breath later, she squared her shoulders and sent up a silent prayer that James was still in the front hall waiting for her so she could make a grand entrance. The more she put herself in front of him the less likely he’d be able to turn away.

Oh yeah, when she rounded the corner on the stairway landing, James was there and he certainly wasn’t looking away.

Not even a blink over his rapidly descending scowl. Which told her one thing.

She’d nailed the outfit.

*

James waited until Mickey stopped on the bottom step. They were almost eye-to-eye between the boots she was wearing and the additional inches afforded by the stair riser. “Did I misread the invitation?” He let his gaze flicker down to her snugly fit bustier. “Are costumes required?”

“Nope, just for me. Don’t you like it? The kids are going to love it.”

No he did not like it. And as for the kids? “Is this an all-boys hospital?”

She made a face that said he was being a jerk, and then tilted her head as though assessing him. “Why would you ask that? Because Wonder Woman is a babe?” She straightened her head and glared at him. “Superheroes are not to be sexually coveted.”

He crossed his arms over his chest and glared right back. “Says who?”

“Says every mother and father ever.”

That made him grin. “Oh. I suppose you went to Comic-Con and took a survey when those mother and fathers were drinking their costume-coiffed faces off, before they sexually coveted each other in their hotel rooms at the end of the evening?”

A few of Riley’s favorite reviewer quotes:

If you love intellectual mind candy, read Ms. Murphy’s work!

Creative, profound and soul searing scenes abound...

One wonders if Ms. Riley is in the sex therapy and marriage counseling business as a day job. The D/s part of this story is Fabulous.

If Riley wasn’t an author she’d be an international spy with top-level security so she could have a peek at Area 51 and decide for herself if those green guys are for real. Failing that, she’d likely go with chicken sexer.

Release Blitz w/Giveaway: Sweet Recovery by Jessie Lane

Title: Sweet Recovery
Series: Sweet #2/Ex Ops #4
Author: Jessie Lane
Genre: Romance
Release Date: May 30, 2016
He broke her heart… now he has to pick up the pieces.
Lucas Young met the woman meant for him when they were just children. He spent years pushing the sweet, innocent Ginny away for one reason or another instead of claiming what was his, breaking her heart in the process.
Five years later, he runs into Ginny, only he no longer recognizes the person she has become. The good-hearted, free-spirited girl he loved is now a shell of who she used to be, living the sort of life she never wanted. And Lucas is driven to find out why.
However, uncovering Ginny’s secrets will prove to be dangerous for them both.
Will he be able to piece back the broken woman who used to love him with every fiber of her being? Or did he push her away for good?
Warning: This is the second book (50,000+ word novel) in a three-part serial spin-off from the Ex Ops Series. Each of the three books will feature a piece of Lucas & Ginny's story and leads directly into the next installment. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS STORY ENDS ON A CLIFFHANGER. Also, be forewarned this story will make you laugh, cry, and possibly throw your e-reader at the wall... AGAIN. <- You've been warned.

As I crossed the dark, smoky room, I still couldn’t believe my luck. The chances that the very woman I had been looking for over the last five years being here at the same time I was were probably astronomical. Yet, there she was, dancing on top of a table with her eyes closed and her head tipped back as she swayed to the music, looking like sex and sin.
I was nothing but dirty, jagged pieces left raw from years at war, both on the inside and the out. And the only person who could glue me back together was less than ten feet away from me, giving the light of her smile to someone else. I had never wanted to murder someone so badly in my life.
Perhaps it was foolish to jump so blindly back in love with a man who had shredded me into almost non-existence before, but I couldn’t help myself, not when it came to Lucas Young. On one hand, he was my kryptonite. On the other, he was my Holy Grail. The last thing I should want, yet the very thing I needed. The literal, breathing contradiction of my life. The only person who could destroy me with a word and build me back up with no words at all.
Jessie Lane is a best-selling author of Paranormal and Contemporary Romance, as well as, Upper YA Paranormal Romance/Fantasy.
She lives in Kentucky with her two little Rock Chicks in-the-making and her over protective alpha husband that she’s pretty sure is a latent grizzly bear shifter. She has a passionate love for reading and writing naughty romance, cliff hanging suspense, and out-of-this-world characters that demand your attention, or threaten to slap you around until you do pay attention to them.

As a granddaughter of a WWII vet & a PROUD mother of a US National Guardman I am proud to be an American, I also know that my son may get that call & may make that ultimate sacrifice, I pay to God every night that does not happen but if that should happen I would know he gave his life for something he believed in & loved his family & country to the maximum to keep us safe & free.



So This Memorial Day if you know or see a military service man or woman please take the time to  shake their hand & thank them for their service & your freedom, you never know when they may make that ultimate sacrifice for you & our country.  Also if you know a family member of a military personnel who has made the ultimate sacrifce, or a former vet or active military thank them also for sacrificing their love ones,  take it from my experience it makes that love one know that their son/daughter, brother/sister, husband/wife is apprecitated in want they believe in & willing to fight for.


To all that gave the ulitimate sacrifice & their families THANK YOU for mine & this Country's freedom!!!

To all the Veterans & Active Military Men & Women & their families THANK YOU for your service!!!  
You All are the reason we are the Land of the Free & Home of the BRAVE!! You ARE the HEROS!!!
