Cover Reveal: Royally Endowed by Emma Chase

     

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go. *** Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

When Rachel tries to help Jarred reunite with his parents, it's an unexpected blessing..with one complication.

Excerpt:

That sudden acknowledgment hit her with such a strong emotional ferocity, she wasn’t sure what to say. I will miss him. I’ve grown accustomed to his soft, kind voice. And I feel such a bond with Jarred, like I’ve never had with anyone. What will I do without him?

As if sensing her thoughts, Jarred stepped closer. “Rachel, thanks for lending me your ear. There can never be a happy ending for what happened. But I want you to know something. Even when Cinnamon’s well, I want to keep in touch.”

His statement prompted a sudden sigh of relief. “Of course.”

As Jarred stepped out of the barn, Rachel yearned for him to stay. To tell him everything she was feeling. So many emotions flitted inside her heart-frustration, compassion, gratefulness, sadness, and others she didn’t recognize-as he stepped into his truck and started the engine.


He wanted to keep in touch. The words came as a relief because she never wanted to be without him.

Excerpt:

“My sister?” She repeated, her beautiful face turning quite the unflattering shade of red.
God, she looked so much the same. It was hard to imagine a day had passed, let alone ten years.
“I’ve been trying to protect my brother from Miss Katherine Marks since the day I met her. I almost beat him senseless after I learned of their first little rendezvous.”
Rendezvous? First?”
He narrowed his gaze. She’d been rendered a parrot by the shock of it all.
George removed a silver holder from his desk drawer and took out a cigar. “Henry met your sister at Hyde just a couple weeks ago. I was with him when it happened. I saw him staring at her, walking down the path with her companion. She stumbled when she walked past us. Henry, ever the gentleman, held out his arms and caught her, saving both her pride and her pretty gown. She’s a beautiful girl and immediately, I knew he was smitten.”
Willie stood there silently, taking it all in, her lips slightly parted.
Those full, pink lips, perfect for kissing…
“I recognized the signs immediately,” he continued. “But pretty girls are a common enough sight in London this time of year, and Henry’s attentions have always been fleeting at best, so I believed he’d forgotten about her. Until I’d learned that the two had met again.”
“But how? I’m always almost with her. On the few occasions I’ve allowed her to take a stroll around the park, I made certain she took her maid along. There’s not a single moment she’s left alone. Her safety has always been my upmost priority.”
He smirked. Willie was never one to remain speechless for too long. “No. But everyone has a price. I suppose her maid’s silence was quite easily purchased, my coachman not so much. Fortunately, he knows where his bread comes from and made me aware of the situation as soon as possible. If it’s any consolation to you, I was told they were quite discreet about it all, my carriage and her maid having been their only real accomplices.”

SYNOPSIS:

It has only been a few months since humanity has found out about the shifters that live in their midst. When the New Alliance leadership asks Eric King to join Alpha Squad, a joint taskforce supposed to promote cooperation between the shifters and human authorities, his loyalty to the cause doesn’t give him any choice but to agree. But is the squad actually supposed to be relevant, or is it just an eyewash, set up by the new Secretary for Shifter Affairs to make himself look good? And how is he going to concentrate on his training, when his inner bear is insisting that the squad leader is his true mate?
Major Janine Williams is not at all pleased when she is ordered to set up Alpha Squad. The initiative is just a gimmick, meant to pacify the shifter community, plus none of her male colleagues had wanted the job. But when she starts getting to know her team, especially tough East London bear shifter, Eric, she starts to wonder if perhaps it will be possible to make this task force a success, so long as everyone works together. And so long as she can manage to keep her relationship with Eric strictly professional.

Blurb: 

Fresh out of the Marine Corps, Braden Kendall has settled into a comfortable routine in SoCal with his 3-legged dog and a handful of good friends.

After becoming pregnant in her teens, Katie Walker dedicated her life to raising her two sons, putting any romantic notions aside until they flew the nest. Now that she’s on her own and free to date, she struggles with putting her needs first.

Though Katie and Braden aren’t related by blood, their families are intertwined by marriage, making a relationship seem forbidden. Katie always found the cocky Marine attractive, but their considerable age difference made him off limits. Little does she know, Braden has been crushing on her for years and can’t get enough of her quirky personality. When they meet up in Vegas for a family celebration, Braden offers to show her a good time unmatched by anything she’s experienced. Once Katie decides she wants more of what he’s offering, can she survive a judgmental society, her insecurities, and the scrutiny of those closest to her?

Excerpt:

Though it’s been over twelve hours since I grabbed a breakfast sandwich in the Newark airport and my angry stomach sounds downright demonic, I’m too tired to go through the motions of ordering a meal. I simply want to soak in the suite’s giant corner tub and pass out in the king bed. I’ll be amazed if I have enough energy to either throw on pajamas, or even pull back the luxurious bedding.

But the moment I round the corner to my hallway, I’ve never felt more awake.

Braden’s here.

Waiting outside my room.

I almost trip over my feet as I continue toward where he sits on the floor, head tipped back against the wall, eyes closed, thick arms slung over his knees. He’s not wearing anything special—a worn AC/DC t-shirt, faded blue jeans, and canvas flip-flops—but he’s so beautiful that I briefly wonder if I’m hallucinating from lack of sleep and starvation. With the sight of his protruding Adam’s apple and the dark scruff lining his thick jaw, the temptation to lick his neck becomes wicked strong. A bolt of desire strikes between my legs.

Keep your thoughts PG, Katie.

Gently nudging his calf with my bare foot, I call his name. He rouses slowly, wiping a hand over his face before his russet eyes focus on me. A brilliant smile spreads over his soft lips. The same lips that reminded me how it felt to truly be alive.

“Hey, beautiful.”

Face turning hot with his compliment, I fold my arms over my stomach. “What are you doing here? How’d you know I was in California?”

“Ev called a couple of hours ago, said you could probably use some company after what would likely be a hellacious day.” He pushes off his hands to stand. “No offense, but it looks like she was right. Have you grabbed supper yet?”

I nearly roll my eyes with the term supper. He sounds just like his sister. “No, I figured it’s too late. Between work and the long flight, I’m exhausted.”

“There’s a place around the corner that has killer fish tacos. I could grab some while you’re taking a bath.”

His hands disappear in his jean pockets and his chest strains against the cotton of his shirt. How I stop myself from running my hands across the valley of muscles is a mystery more complex than the Bermuda triangle. And when I picture myself naked in the tub with him in the next room, moisture pools between my legs. My body still wants him regardless of whatever my overactive imagination thinks.

Horrible idea.

“I guess I could stay up long enough for tacos,” I decide with a soft sigh. “But I’d rather eat at the restaurant. If I take a bath right now, I’ll be done for the night.”

His adorable dimples pop into place when his smile grows. “You won’t regret it. They’re legendary out here.”

But he’s dead wrong. I’m already regretting any decision that doesn’t involve sending him home and locking myself in the room.
