Announcement from Harper Sloan

 

JB Salsbury – Fighting For Honor

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author JB Salsbury brings her Fighting series to Harper Sloan’s Hope Town in this Kindle Worlds exclusive, Fighting for Honor.

UFL fighter Caleb hasn’t been to Hope Town since he was eighteen. His next big fight takes place in Atlanta and the serene lakefront home from his childhood is the perfect place to train without distractions.

Until he stumbles downstairs to find a woman in his house. He’s met her before, and he’s never forgotten.

Honor was raised by her grandfather, Crazy Colonel Cartwright. Ostracized at a young age she was an outcast. Combined with her awkward personality and she became the local bully’s favorite plaything.

Honor and Caleb come face-to-face and feelings from fourteen years ago come rushing back—not all of them good.

She prefers to remain unknown, but she’s seen in public with the world’s most talked about fighter and thrust into a national spotlight that catches the attention of her childhood tormentors.

And they aren’t finished with her yet.

 

Felicia Lynn: How To Breathe

I can’t go back to the man I was any more than I can forget the memories locked inside me. Few men qualified for the mission and even fewer were willing to accept the required life sentence. Counting the days, good and bad, I exist as the world keeps spinning.

There’s a price to pay for a life with a greater purpose, but the healing of time is a damn liar. I’m supposed to be a dead man, and the silence couldn’t be more deafening. Even though I could never look back, I thought I’d taken enough out of that life to carry me forward. The success of the mission was meant to give the tragedy of my life meaning, but I’ve been stuck in this wreckage of my past . . . until now.

One look into her eyes disarms me. These walls I’ve built shouldn’t break on their own, but they crumble whenever she’s near. I’ve spent years waiting for a reason to breathe again, and now that I have her within reach, I’m not sure I can keep her. Is it possible to find both the missing piece of my soul and the remedy to my healing in one set of bright green eyes?

 

 

 

 

JM Walker: For You

Brogan Tapp tries to be strong. Guilt and fear that the man she loves will fall within himself and not know how to find his way out, haunts her.

Coby Porter vows not to let the demons in his mind take over. He plans a trip to save his relationship, once and for all.

Hope Town, Georgia is the saving grace for their love, before the nightmares consume them both.

 

 

 

 

SR Watson – Deliverance

Bleu Loren

 

My life has never been my own. I’ve always been a rule follower—the obedient girl who always did what she was told. I played the part given to me and got engaged to the man my parents set me up with. He was supposed to be my Prince Charming. He promised me a happily ever after, only he delivered a nightmare instead. Now I’m on the run. No money. No plan. Just freedom. How ironic is it that my desperate escape lands me in a place called Hope Town? I lost hope a long time ago.

Beau Rivers Lair

I’m a manwhore. It’s a known fact and exactly how I like it. I make my own rules and live without expectations. Returning to Hope Town to help the woman who raised me with her restaurant meant my past was here to greet me, but I refuse to allow the mirage of possibilities to engulf me a second time around. I don’t believe in love or fairy-tale endings. There’s lust, and there’s screwing. I don’t have time for anyone or anything outside of these two principles. There is no hope for me. Accept it or not … you’ve been warned!

 

 

 

Somethin’ Bad by Cat Mason


Tequila can make a woman do somethin’ stupid.

Somethin’ bad…

After celebrating my birthday with my best friends turns into the most embarrassing night of my life, the last thing I expected was to see him walk into my bakery. The sexy smile on his face lets me know that he has no intention of letting me off the hook either. He doesn’t want an apology or an explanation.

He wants me.

The way Matt Hudson crashes into my life and bosses me around as if he has known me all my life is frustrating. What’s even worse is the power he has to bring me to my knees with the flash of one his panty-melting smiles. He steals my control without even trying.

Makes me want.

Makes me need.

Even when my life begins to unravel right before my eyes, there is a part of me hoping that the man my friends have dubbed Hunk P.D. may be something good to come out of all my heartache.

 

 

 

 

 

The entire Corps Security series is together for a limited time box set.

Years after the Marines brought them together, the men of Corps Security are together again.

These six novels follow their lives as they take a chance at love. Can love truly conquer all?

From broken souls to broken hearts, they all will find out if they’ll get their second chance at happily ever afters and that love really is worth fighting for.

**Warning**
These books are intended for a mature reading audience and aren’t suitable for younger readers. There are some mild scenes of abuse that happen outside of the relationship of the H/h in some of the books.

I’ve discovered Donovan Kincaid’s secret.

It’s dirty and filthy and rich – as dirty and filthy and rich as he is – and it haunts me as much as he ever did.

Even after knowing what I know now, I still want to talk to him, to touch him. But there’s an ocean between us, and I’m not sure it can be crossed with something as easy as a phone call or a plane ride.

Yet I’m willing to try.

He doesn’t know this yet, but this time I’m the one with the power. And maybe – just maybe – if the air were cleared and all our secrets bared, there could still be a chance for us.

And this dirty, filthy thing between us might end up being love after all.

Excerpt
Jameson Following
Rico up the steps, we jog up to the top level, and sprint toward the concession
stands. With the Sixers getting their asses handed to them, the halls are
starting to crowd. People shuffle about, knocking into us as we pass. Once we
reach the counter, I shake my head, disappointed, because the concession stand
has closed for the night.

“I don’t
think they have any more nachos, kiddo. Would you settle for soda and another
hot dog?”
Rico folds
his arm over his chest and pouts. “But I want nachos.”
“They’re
all out.” I clamp my hand down on his shoulder and move him in front of me so
he can get a better look at what they have left. “You can have a hot dog,
pretzel, or ice cream. Which one do you want?”
“I think I
can help you out,” a woman says from behind me.
At first, I
don’t realize she’s talking to me. Not until she strokes my arm with her
fingers, commanding my attention. Her touch sends a chill through me. She
smells sweet, like honey, and good enough to eat.
I spin
around, holding onto Rico. The girl smiles so wide that it reaches up to her
bright, blue eyes. Tucking a strand of blonde hair behind her ear, she moves
closer to me. She has a girl next-door look about her, but she’s also sporty,
like Charlie, and is in full basketball gear, looking as though she just
stepped off the court.
A girl that
reminds me of Charlie is never a bad thing. She’s the coolest girl I have ever
known. Despite being subpar at most sports, I’ve always loved them and continue
to coach youth basketball with Charlie.
Beautiful
beyond words, I have trouble coming up with anything decent to say as I take
her in, thinking of all the dirty things I’d like to do with her mouth. As her
lips part, her breath hitches. She’s about to say something when Rico breaks
the silence.
“Nachos!”
Rico demands.
I laugh, as
does the girl in front of me. Her laughter is soft and feminine and like music
to my ears.
“I can help
you out with your nacho problem.” She holds out her hand for me to shake. And I
do, mostly because I want an excuse to touch her. “I’m Regan, and you are…” She
waits for me to stop acting like a moron and get my shit together.
“Jameson
O’Connor. Jamie. My friends call me Jamie.” Wow! Real smooth, dude.
“I like
Jameson better,” she says, grinning. “The name suits you.”
“Thanks, I
guess.” I stuff my hands into my jean pockets. “Regan isn’t a name you hear
often either.”
“That’s my
dad for you.” She chuckles to herself as if there’s a private joke behind her
name. “How about you two handsome guys follow me, and I’ll get you those
nachos.”
“Yay! Thank
you!” Rico latches onto her by wrapping his arms around her stomach.
“Cute kid
you have here,” she says, staring at me while patting Rico on the back.
“I don’t
know about all that,” I deadpan. “Rico is a pain. You can keep him if you’d
like.”
“Hey!” Rico
finally unhooks himself from Regan to give me the stink eye. “Take it back.”
Hooking my
arm around Rico, I walk down the long hallway next to Regan. “I’m kidding. I’d
never give my buddy away.”
“Rico,” she
says as if thinking to herself and staring down at him to get another glance at
his face. “You don’t hear that name often either. Have we met before?”
“No, I
don’t think so. You have the kind of face I wouldn’t forget.”
She laughs,
blush spreading across her cheeks. But she doesn’t respond to my stupid comment
that sounded like a pickup line, even though it wasn’t intended as one.
The crowds
are getting heavier as we pass, and the buzzer still hasn’t sounded, which
means we have time to get back to our seats. I hope. But I’m also unsure if I
want to go back now that I have Regan’s company. After we loop around the
corner, she stops in front of a different concession stand.
“Hey, Joe.”
Regan waves to a balding man behind the counter. “Can I get two nachos and two
Cokes for my new friends?” She winks at me as she says this.
She has a
certain ease about her that reminds me of Charlie. You can be yourself around
girls like them. Except, for some reason, she makes me nervous. I think of
asking her out as we wait for Joe to fill the plastic containers with cheese.
What if she shoots me down? Not that it would matter. It’s not like we will see
each other again. What do I have to lose?
Joe hands
the nachos to Rico first, and then, the other set to me. Regan takes a chip
from my tray, dunks it in cheese, and shoves it into her mouth with her eyes
trained on me. We share a moment. With me focusing on her mouth as she chews,
it takes me a second before I realize Joe is trying to get my attention to hand
me a cup of soda.
“Thank
you.” I lift the drink from the counter and hold it up in acknowledgment. Then,
I turn to Regan, who has stolen another chip from me. “How is it that you have
the hook up around here?”
“I know a
guy who knows a guy,” she deadpans, laughing to herself.
“What are
you doing this weekend?”
I’m usually
not so forward with women. My question surprises me just as much as Regan. I
like to check women out, make sure they’re not crazy or up to Charlie’s
standards before I ask them out on a date. But I feel comfortable around Regan.
Plus, she didn’t even know me and went out of her way to get Rico food. The
least I can do is return the favor and buy her a decent meal that doesn’t
consist of processed cheese and corn chips.
“Umm…nothing
much. Are you asking me out, Jameson O’Connor?” She inches closer to me and the
tension between us is burning like a lit match.
“Yeah, I
suppose I am asking you out. So, what do you say? Do you want to have dinner
with me on Saturday night?”
She holds
her finger up to her lip, pretending to think it over. The wait is killing me. Say
yes already.
Before she
can respond, I hear Alex call out, “There’s the man-of-honor. We’ve been
looking for you everywhere.”
I was so
caught up in Regan and getting Rico his nachos that I’d forgotten about the
game. How is it I didn’t even notice the buzzer go off, only the people tearing
through the halls in a rush to get out of the building?
“I’m right
here,” I say, annoyed.
Our entire
wedding party follows behind Alex, including Charlie, who has a strange look on
her face. She seems confused, but I have no idea why.
Coming up
next to me, Charlie does something I least expect when she locks onto Regan.
She hugs her as if they have known each other for years.
“How are
you?” Charlie asks, taking a step back from Regan to stand next to me. “It’s
been a while. Is your dad keeping you busy?”
Regan
shrugs. “You know my dad.”
Alex
glances at me, confused, and then, back to Regan. “What are you doing out here
with Jamie? How do you guys know each other?”
“We don’t,”
I interject before she can respond. “They were out of nachos at the concession
by our seats, and Regan helped us out.”
“Mind your
own business, Parker.” Regan’s tone is playful. She speaks to him as if she’s
good friends with Alex.
Who is
this chick?
“Oh, shit,”
Tyler says, stealing the show with his dominance, as he moves through the crowd
to get to Regan. “Are you gonna tell your dad we’re up to no good again?”
Regan
blushes, looking away from him and to me. She holds my gaze for a few seconds
before rolling her eyes at Tyler. “Will you ever let me live that down, Kane? I
was a teenager back then.”
“You’re not
a kid anymore,” he jokes, and that earns him an elbow to the biceps from Regan.
“Shut it,
Kane, before I shut it for you.”
After
Carter exchanges pleasantries with Regan, I start to feel left out of this
conversation. Everyone seems to know Regan except for me. And she never had the
chance to answer my question.
“So, you’re
with Coach,” Regan says to me. “I had no idea.”
“Why? Would
you have treated me differently if I you had known?”
She nods.
“Yes, actually, I would have.”
“Meaning?”
I ask, hoping she will elaborate.
“I was
about to say yes, but now…” Her voice trails off, leaving me even more confused
by the conversation.
What has
changed since Charlie and the gang had to show up and ruin everything?
“I don’t
mix business with pleasure. Sorry.” She gives my arm a pity stroke that sets my
skin on fire.
Why is
she sorry?
Regan
flashes a tiny small before saying her goodbye’s to everyone in our group,
including me. “It was nice meeting you, Jameson.”
“Wait.” I
grab her forearm as she walks away. “You never answered my question.”
A sullen
expression crosses her face. “Under different circumstances, I would’ve said
yes to you in a heartbeat.”
“What
circumstances?” I ask, bewildered.
“I can’t
get mixed up in my father’s business. I’m sorry. It’s just not a good idea. But
I’m glad we met. Come by and see me sometime. I’ll make sure you have nachos
for the next game.”
Without
giving me time to interject, she waves over her shoulder at me, falling in line
with the rest of the crowd, as she strolls down the hall.
Charlie leans
close and whispers into my ear. “Did you ask Regan out?”
I frown.
“Yeah, but she shot me down.”
“She
doesn’t date athletes.”
“But I’m
not an athlete,” I counter, “not even close.”
Charlie
shrugs. “Yeah, but I bet she thinks you are one just by association with me.”
“Why would
she think I’m one of your players?” I stare down at my clothes. I’m built, but
nowhere near the kind of conditioning that screams professional athlete.
“You’re in
much better shape that you realize, Jamie.” She acts nonchalant. “It’s probably
for the best. If things didn’t work out for you, it would mess up my
relationship with her father, and I can’t have that.”
“Who is her
father?” The question of the hour.
“Mike
Turner.”
It takes me
a minute to recognize the name. “Her dad is the Mike Turner?”
“The one
and only,” Charlotte says.
I scratch
the stubble on my chin, trying to process the news. Mike Turner is the general
manager for the Flyers, a hall of famer, and one of the most legendary hockey
players to step onto the ice. “I guess that makes her like hockey royalty.”
Charlie
nods. “Yup, which also makes her off-limits to you.”
A
challenge. Knowing that Charlie wants me to stay away only makes me want to
pursue Regan even more. I also want to change her mind and make Regan see that
I am not like my friends.

16 Hot Reads for Summer

 

It’s officially summer!

You know what that means!! Lake days, beach days, days in the sun. And what better companion than a new beach read? I love grabbing my swim suit, some sunscreen, and my current read and heading out to the lake, seeing as I live in Colorado and there is no ocean around, and simply laying and soaking up the sun and a great romance. Therefore, I have compiled a list of books that I think would be perfect choices.

 

Untitled design (3)

 

33515663There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.
Right?

****
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. Besides, I’ve got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?

Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoonworthy hero you will fall madly in love with.

351095771Nothing good comes after the third date.

Date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he’ll get weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked or that he can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

I’ve always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.

And then I finally had her for one night.

A night I don’t remember.

I figured I’d blown my shot.

But now she’s walked back into my life, and this time, I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.

Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?

32798939Photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. All he needs is one perfect model to be the centerpiece of his sexy, controversial show. Find her, and Wyatt is sure to have a winner.

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well why their relationship ended all those years ago.

Determined to break free from her good girl persona, Kelsey wants spice. Adventure. And she’s certain that Wyatt is just the man to help.

But when Wyatt agrees to give her the job only if he has complete control—on camera and in his bed—Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Because how can a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

31159214Students are begging to be held after class…

Andie Lincoln is madly in love with Terrence Knight–her childhood friend-turned-Hollywood’s newest golden boy. But he’s a Dominant and wants her trained as a submissive before he’ll consider a relationship with her. He enrolls her at the RACK Academy with strict instructions for her teachers: Do whatever you need to, but don’t take her virginity.

Fulton Matthews, the director of incoming students, is enthralled by Andie. Though he questioned her enrollment at first, watching her discover her submissive nature is hotter than his most intense fantasy. Under his control, her sexual awakening brings him to his knees.

Yet they can go only so far. Andie belongs to another, and Fulton is bound by a contract that strictly forbids relationships between teachers and students. But when Terrence comes to collect his prize, Fulton discovers it’s not easy to let Andie go. . .

32620304All’s fair in love and work. The first standalone romance by New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard) is a sexy, compulsively readable romantic comedy that dives headlong into the thrill and doubt of modern love.

Despite the odds against them from an embarrassing meet-awkward at a mutual friend’s Halloween party, Carter and Evie immediately hit it off. Even the realization that they’re both high-powered agents at competing firms in Hollywood isn’t enough to squash the fire.

But when their two agencies merge—causing the pair to vie for the same position—all bets are off. What could have been a beautiful, blossoming romance turns into an all-out war of sabotage. Carter and Evie are both thirtysomething professionals—so why can’t they act like it?

Can Carter stop trying to please everyone and see how their mutual boss is really playing the game? Can Evie put aside her competitive nature long enough to figure out what she really wants in life? Can their actor clients just be something close to human? Whether these two Hollywood love/hatebirds get the storybook Hollywood ending or just a dramedy of epic proportions, you will get to enjoy Christina Lauren’s heartfelt, raucous, and hilarious romance style at its finest.

The trouble is I can’t quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

35004715When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

Damien Fox lived up to his name.
Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.
Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.
And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.
I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.
He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.
Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.
Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.
One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox…

No matter how cruel it’s been in the past, I’ve never been able to flip fate the bird. I’m a romantic at heart. So when fate drops a leather-bound journal at my feet, I know I should walk away.

I don’t. I pick her up, bend her spine, spread her pages. From the first word, I’m a goner. The owner didn’t give me access to her most intimate desires, but I devour them anyway. Her private darkness, her candid, explicit poetry—it all goes down like warm milk. And from that point forward, I drink, eat, and sleep her.

Halston
I went to his apartment and let him take my picture. Just once, to see how it would feel. I’m not his to look at, to inspire, to touch, but when he watches me through his lens, it gives me a high I don’t want to come down from…

My journal is the one place I can be myself—as long as I can tie it up and put it away when I’m finished. But when Finn undoes the bow, he pulls strings that could unravel each of us.

34211669You have the right to remain sexy.

Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed.

You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm.

If you have trouble…don’t worry, I’m a bit of an expert in that department.

There’s nothing ‘thin’ about my blue line, if you catch my drift, and trust me, I know how to put those handcuffs to good use.

Seeing his role in Ruby’s dilemma, Bane offers her a permanent job as his live-in pet sitter until she can get back on her feet.

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They’re right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister’s ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.

Dean

They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.

He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.

And she’s stranded with him for an entire week.

He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her. She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.

Buckle up.

31748067What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?
