Excerpt:

If you trust me with your key, I’ll make the bed,” Cheryl said.

Thanks.” Nathan was so relieved, he yanked her into a big hug.

The bag of bedding dropped to the floor with a thump. Her arms clutched his waist.

It wasn’t a move on his part. He was thankful for her help. But her breasts pressed against his chest. She stared up at him, her eyes going dark.

Let go of my mom!” Josh stormed into the room. He pummeled Nathan’s leg with sharp jabs.

Hey, slugger.” Nathan let go of Cheryl and she staggered back.

Don’t hurt my mom.” Josh kicked him.

Josh, stop.” Cheryl caught his hand and pulled him away. “Nathan was thanking me for helping him.”

He touched you!”

Not in a bad way,” she insisted.

Nathan slumped onto Issy’s bed. What the hell was happening? Had someone touched Cheryl in a bad way?

Is...is everything okay?” Are we okay?

She knelt next to Josh. “Apologize to Mr. Nathan.”

He shouldn’t touch you.” Josh stuck his chin out.

It’s fine.” Nathan ran his hands through his hair. He nodded at Josh. “He was protecting you. That’s good.”

Josh glared back.

Cheryl looked at Nathan. “It’s never okay to hit someone.” She squeezed her son’s shoulder in silent communication.

Sorry.” The kid spit the word out like it was venom.

I understand.” Nathan nodded. “It’s a guy thing. We have to protect our moms, right?”

Josh didn’t answer. Thank goodness the kid didn’t have superpowers or Nathan would have been incinerated by the fire in his eyes.

Read an Excerpt

“Uh, I, uh do solemnly swear that…” He moved a bit closer. “That I understand that Dr. Maxwell Spencer Lawrence wants to screw my brains out, but that he is waiting for the opportune moment. I understand that when said moment occurs, I will be fully cognizant of that fact. I will be a willing, enthusiastic participant, and I will never say that I am not good at it again. Because Dr. Maxwell Spencer Lawrence will need medication if I get any better at it.” Suddenly, amazingly, Rebecca could barely contain her laughter. “I can’t remember all that, Dr. Lawrence,” she said with mock severity. “Then just nod your assent. I’ll remember.” Rebecca nodded and looked up at him. “I think you already need medication. And I am unsure that wearing a Mickey Mouse watch helps instill sufficient fear in me to obey you.” Max leaned back from her and narrowed his eyes. “I will have you know, madam, that The Mouse is a total badass. He manages that whack pack of characters that surround him, he can understand what the actual fuck Donald Duck says, he’s faithful to his woman, and he does all that wearing red pants with no fly. Total badass.”

book blurb

Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade, has learned it is best to exercise rigid control over his passions and emotions in all that he does. Uncaring that it makes him seem cool and aloof to most in the ton, he is content with his desire to only woo agreeable and demur females. Then unforeseen circumstances see him trapped in a closet at a house party with the last woman he would ever make his countess.

Lady Olivia Sherwood is everything he should not desire in a female—unconventional, too decisive, and utterly without decorum. But passion ignites between them and they are discovered. Honor demands they wed, and while Tobias finds himself unwillingly drawn to the bewitching beauty, he must do everything not to tempt the passion that burns in him for her, lest it leads to disastrous consequences.

I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. I especially love romance and enjoy writing about people falling in love. I live a lot in the worlds I create and I actively speak to my characters (out loud). I have a warrior way “Never give up on my dream.” When I am not writing, I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, Lucas Hood from Banshee, watching Japanese Anime and playing video games with my love—Dusean. I also have a horrible weakness for ice cream.

Guest Post: Harper Kincaid authour of Girl Breaker



Exclusive Excerpt from Harper Kincaid's 
Girl Breaker


Then his mouth came down, and I immediately opened for him, making him growl. His kisses started off hungry, insistent. It was as if he had been starved and needed feeding. He strengthened his grip on my hair, maneuvering to accommodate wherever his mouth wanted to explore: my lips, my long neck, the underside of my jaw.
“I can’t get enough of you.” His lips and tongue dragged across my skin, making their way down the deep V of my dress’s neckline as he rubbed the tip of his nose in my cleavage. “Jesus Christ, you smell like heaven.” He lifted his torso from mine to lower my dress straps. I lay there, topless, my small breasts heaving up and down under his penetrating gaze. I moved my hands to cover myself, thinking my body must look like a joke compared to the voluptuous women he’d had in his bed. But he read what I was doing and moved my hands away, pinning them under his.
“You’re beautiful. Don’t hide from me, baby.” He swallowed hard, his words sounding like they were getting stuck in his throat. And just like that, I let go of any lingering insecurities that haunted me.
He was like my own fallen angel, one who’d weathered a few storms along the way, with his perfectly mussed, dirty-blond hair and slightly scarred features. I shivered as his rough and calloused fingertips dragged across my skin, from the apple of my cheek on down to the hollow of my throat. He lingered at that spot for a beat, caressing the indentation, his gaze so intense I felt it burn.
“In this bed and from now on, we don’t hide. You got it?”
I nodded, hearing every word he said, but I was just trying to remember to breathe. No matter how much air I took into my lungs, it seemed the oxygen wasn’t getting to my brain because, even lying down, I felt like I was falling. He must have noticed because he placed his palm right in the center of my sternum, and gently pressed down. My heart was pounding like a jackhammer, so insistent and loud that I could see his hand pulsating from its rhythm. I let out a laugh at a higher pitch than I’d like, and he gave a beautiful smile in return.
“I guess I’m a little nervous,” I whispered, and he let out an easy laugh of his own..”
He leaned his weight, chest to chest, resting on his elbows. The pads of his thumbs naturally found their way to my temples, slowly stroking back and forth as he lovingly gazed into my eyes, still with a smile on his face.
“Nothing to be nervous about,” he answered. “It’s just me.”
“But you’re everything,” I blurted out.
He stilled and I immediately panicked. “What I mean is—”
“You meant it. Don’t take it back,” he said. Then, his mouth was on mine and if I had any resistance, his touch melted it away. The way he kissed, it was like he couldn’t get enough of the way I tasted and felt; the feeling made me even more lightheaded than before.
He lifted off me just enough to tear my dress down and away from my body and then strip off his own clothes. When his skin touched mine again…when I felt the weight of him settled on top of me, my anchored and lonely heart shed its barnacles and debris. And as he entered my body, some floating, wandering piece from deep inside finally clicked into place.
I was home. I was home. I was home.

Sometimes the best thing a good girl can do is make a bad decision.

Jessica has always been the girl with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book, only dating the "nice guys". But when rough-around-the-edges Viking-biker-god, Mad Max, and his precocious little girl move onto her street, Jessica falls hard and fast for both of them. Max is no stranger to women wanting to share his bed—and he's always been more than happy to oblige them all. He's lived wild all his life—that is, until a daughter shows up on his doorstep and he meets a redheaded angel down the block.

There's nothing more he wants than to claim Jessica as his, to bring the gorgeous spitfire to his bed. But a man like him doesn't get a happy ending with a woman like her. He's got a whole other life, one he's kept secret for good reason. If Jessica found out what he really is, there's no way she could love him. He should keep his hands to himself. But he's Mad Max—he's never done the right thing, and he's not going to start now.

Warning: Contains a dominating alpha male who's a lot more than he seems, and a good girl with a swirl of flavors under her vanilla

Melody
How did my life get so complicated? Going to my ex-boyfriend’s party seemed like a good idea to prove I moved on. And that’s where I saw him –the stranger with the perfect amount of cocksure promises. So I took everything he offered, every delicious inch. It’s just that I wasn’t completely aware of the entire package.

Kellan
How did my life get so perfect? Sure, I’m a complete package and I know how to use my assets. I’m never lonely and the ladies drop to their knees for a night with me. I know what you’re thinking –I’m a manwhore, well, you’re right, but I’m always honest with my one night stands - there’s never an encore But now I must get my game on because there's much more at stake than I could have imagined.

For one night, we surrendered to our desires and it was sublime. But then our worlds unexpectedly collided once again. What are the odds?



EXCERPT

“Wait… I don’t even know your name,” I panted.
He gave me a lopsided grin before licking his bottom lip in a hypnotizing way. Finally, he rewarded me with an answer: “My name depends on who you are.”
“What does that mean?”
“Women generally call me God,” he started before adding fake woman moan, “Oh God, please let me come. Oh God, yes… right there.”
I tried to stop my laugh, rolling my eyes instead, “What about men? What do they call you?”
“Bastard, asshole… you name it,” he shrugged.
“You’re confusing me,” I started, smiling at him to let him know I was teasing. “What should I call you if I agree to go with you?” I added.
“When you agree to leave this club with me you can call me ‘stranger’ till I become your God,” he whispered into my ear before peppering kisses on the sensitive skin under my ear.
I nodded my head, letting him guide me toward the exit.

Release Blitz: Every Night Without You by Violet Duke

Title: Every Night Without You (Caine & Addison, Bk 2 of 2)
Series: Unfinished Love
Author: Violet Duke
Publication Date: January 17, 2017
 
Blurb
Seven years. Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive...whether she'd spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive. Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his. Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she's back. With even more reasons to run than she'd had then. Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight. Regardless of how noble her reasons may be. “Violet Duke is my go-to read when I just want to immerse myself in a captivating romance.” – NYT bestselling author J.S. Cooper EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2) takes place seven years after BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2), and is the conclusion of Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run―and chase―when their past threatens their future.    
Excerpt
Copyright (c) 2017 Violet Duke
“Stop reading my mind,” she whispered. “No.” The softly growled word was the only warning she got before his arms snaked around her waist and pulled her to him. “There hasn’t been a single night since you left that I haven’t thought about the way you felt in my arms the first time I’d slept longer than a few hours in years.” She gasped. His eyes flared. “That right there—that’s why I’m never going to stop reading your thoughts, baby. No matter how well Alec taught you to hide, knowing that even now, after all this time, you still can’t hide all your feelings from me completely? That’s the one thing that’ll help me sleep tonight. It still won’t be for longer than an hour or two, but at least in that short time, I’ll have something to hold onto again.” Tidal waves of emotion slammed into her, one after another, crashing through every last barrier she’d built around herself, stripping away every protective layer she’d hid behind for the last seven years. Until all that was left was her. A low, harsh sound broke free from Caine. Feelings and thoughts, fears and hopes—she bared it all to him. For so long, she’d kept everything from everyone, herself included. Now, disarmed and defenseless, anyone with eyes could plainly see the one unmistakably distinguishable part of her that she’d had to work the hardest to hide. Her heart. Which was still irrevocably tethered to the man standing before her. “Go inside, Addison. Right now. While I’m still able to let you.” Every cell in her body rebelled against the command. “Please, honey. Don’t do that. Don’t flash that look at me. That stubborn rebel-in-stilettos sass will have you under me in your bed in two seconds flat.” He groaned at whatever her eyes were telling him next. To be fair, he started it with that panty-melting threat. “Baby, you’re killing me.” Right back at you. He pushed open the door the rest of the way for her, one hand holding the top of the frame as if physically stopping himself from doing anything else. For a while, the internal battles they each faced with themselves kept them both cemented where they stood. But eventually, the growing torment and tension racking his entire frame made her back up a single step and clear the doorway. “Lock the deadbolt.” These overprotective demands just shouldn’t be this sexy. She shut the door and laid her palm against it. Knowing he was still out there, she confessed quietly to the wooden barricade between them, “That memory stayed with me, too. Even now, the only way I’m able to eventually fall asleep is to imagine your arms around me. Holding me. Keeping me safe.” Loving me. It was a full minute before she finally heard his heavy tactical boots walk away.
