Blurb

I’m not a good man, and I’ve never pretended to be. I don’t believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn’t paid for in advance.
What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18.
They have words for men like me—playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser.
My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me.
Sinner.
 
***Sinner is a standalone companion to Priest about Father Bell's brother Sean. You do not have to read Priest or Midnight Mass to read Sinner.***


         

EXCERPT

“Zenny,” I mumble against her lips, some valiant part of me recognizing that this is far, far beyond the kiss she asked for, and also recognizing that I’m going to come all over the inside of my Hugo Boss suit pants if she keeps it up. Even through the clothes, I can feel her heat, her shameless rolls hinting at where she goes soft and wet between her legs.
Fuck, I want to see it. I want to see her pussy. It’s suddenly all I can think about, all I can want or crave, just one glimpse, just a peek.
“I want to see your cunt,” I say hoarsely, lifting my head.
“My…cunt?” She says the word like she’s never said it out loud before.
“Yeah.” My voice is so ragged right now, so desperate, and fuck, I’ve never felt this frantic before. Like I’ll actually combust if I don’t get this one thing, this one small sight of her secret place.
She lets out a shaky breath, her hand dropping from my lapel to her skirt, which she slowly rucks up to her waist as I devour her lips once more, as I bury my face in her neck and kiss every sliver of skin exposed above her collar. I bite at her ear, at her jaw, my hand finding hers as it pulls her skirt up, so that I’m helping her do it, that we’re doing it together, this forbidden act, this forbidden revelation.
Her forbidden body.
That word, forbidden, spikes through my mind, bringing with it equal spikes of lust and fear. Because yes, it’s fucking hot that I shouldn’t be kissing her, I shouldn’t be begging to see her most secret place, my hand shouldn’t be covering hers as it slides up her thigh—but it’s also bad. Bad even for Sean Bell.
Bad, bad, bad.

Character Interview from Gettin’ Lucky in Kentucky by Tiffany Carby
Thank you so much for joining us today! Please introduce yourself!
Tell us who you are and what you do!
Hi! My name is Beatrix Schuler and my friends call me Trixie!
What do you do for a living?
I own the tavern in Spring City called “Irish Ayes”
How old are you?
Isn’t it rude to ask a lady her age?
Tell us about your story. What is it about and what role do you play?
Well, I’m the star, of course! I’ve gotten myself into a little money trouble, or rather a little money trouble has found me. And, let’s just say I have one heck of a bad luck day…
Can you tell us about one of your most distinguishable features?
Legs for days…
Do you have any birthmarks or tattoos?
I do not have any birthmarks, and no tattoos, yet.
What would I love the most about you?
I’m very friendly and easy to talk to. My tavern customers just love me.
What would I hate the most about you?
I’m a bit materialistic, dear. I’ll just go ahead and admit that.
What is your idea of a perfect day?
A nice quiet picnic with the ravishing Deakon Cavanaugh… sigh.
What’s the best part about being in love?
Being loved in return!
What is your greatest fear?
Can I say homelessness?
Hot weather or cold?
Kentucky weather is just fine for this girl. We have all seasons and I love them all.
Dogs or cats?
Well, seeing as how a dang cat finds its way into my story, I’ll go with the felines.
Who was your first love?
Too many years ago to remember... I thought at one time I loved my latest ex-boyfriend, but you’ll see how that turned out. My last love, however, is mighty fine.
How do you take your eggs in the morning?
I generally leave them in the refrigerator, and stick with my fancy tea from The Wishing Well—Spring City’s coffee shop.
Someone is secretly in love with you. Who is it and how do you feel about that?
It better be Deakon, or we have a whole other mess on our hands…
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always aspired to be doing what I’m doing, just making less mistakes.
If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?
Deakon.
What is the one food you can’t live without?
My fancy teas.
If they turned the book into a movie, who would be cast to play you?
My friends always say I resemble Sandra Bullock.

#NowLive #Review: Dude Interrupted by Andrea Smith

 
 
¸.•´¸.•*´¨)✯ ¸.•*★ NEW RELEASE! ¸.•´¸.•*´¨)✯ ¸.•*★


"Dude, Interrupted," is NOW LIVE!


USA Today Bestselling Author, Andrea Smith, brings the next installment in the G-Man Next Generation series to life!
Bryce Slater is eighteen. He parties a bit. Smokes a little dope now and then. Likes the occasional random hook-up. So what? He's young, reckless and determined NOT to follow in his father's FBI footsteps. That's right, Slate's son is NOT a chip off the old block, much to his father's chagrin.

When a spring break party is busted in his senior year of high school, Bryce finds himself in a bit of trouble with the law. That's when his father steps in and uses his clout for damage control. Bryce is sent to work on a horse ranch right after graduation in order to pay off his debt, and to learn responsibility at the very lowest level.

Enter Avery Sinclair, the 19 year old middle daughter of Circuit Court Judge Trey Sinclair. Avery is managing the ranch over the summer, and finds herself in the position of being Bryce's boss. No easy task, and Bryce does his best to test her limits and push all the wrong buttons.

But when dealing with a bad boy, sometimes a girl's better judgment takes a snooze. And Avery Sinclair finds herself in unfamiliar emotional territory when it comes to Bryce.

Enjoy this stand-alone New Adult Romance and reacquaint yourselves with some characters you may have met before from the Baby Series and G-Man Series! 
 


EXCERPT
ADULT CONTENT

"Your turn now Bryce," I murmured against his lips. "I want to see every part of what I've been feeling these past few weeks."
I closed my eyes and heard his soft chuckle as he pulled away from me. I allowed my other senses to take over.
The sounds of him removing his boots; lowering the zipper on his jeans, and pulling his black tee shirt up and over his head.
The scent of his aftershave as his face was once again mere inches from mine.
The feel of his warm breath caressing my cheek; the touch of his lips moving against my skin with his softly spoken words. "I've waited so long for this, Avery. I want to love every inch of you."
My eyes fluttered open and collided with his deep blue ones. He was intense. His eyes flickered over every part of me, and my fingers traced the bulging muscles of his triceps and shoulders. I could feel his hardness against me, and every part of me burned in anticipation of what we would no longer deny ourselves.

Review
 
Let's get real, being a teenager is not an easy thing to go through. All the changes, physical and mental, are sometimes overwhelming, add to that your parents moving you from what you know and are familiar with to another city and you have more things to worry about and another environment to get used to.

That's exactly what happened to Bryce Slater and for better or worse, he didn't fit well where his parents moved to. The pressures of not fitting in and following in his dad's footsteps send him in a spiral of something that looked a bit like self-destruction. But his parents quick thinking send him somewhere where he could very well find his salvation. Avery Sinclair is the manager for her family's horses' farm, a good girl with a good head on her shoulders and who perhaps is the only one to get Bryce to go back to his usual self before the move.

I'm a big fan of the G-Man series and I love to see their children all grown up and living their own lives. Bryce and Avery are simply perfect for each other, while he's a little wild she's the girl that brings stability and order to his life. I appreciate that the author made their relationship a slow burn and that they were friends before they became lovers. The twist the author wrote into the story gave it the perfect push to make it even more interesting.

This is a quick, fun read with a bit of suspense mixed into it, it will have its audience rooting for Bryce and Avery. Well done!

#ReleaseBlitz: Craft by Adriana Locke




Title: Craft
Series: The Gibson Boys #2
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 14, 2018



Blurb

They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends. More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.
               
Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a coincidence. All sixteen times.

Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.

These two don’t hate each other. They don’t really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have to start somewhere, right?

Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.

#TeaserThursday: The Scars We Bear by J.L. Berg

 
Blurb
 
Every scar tells a story...
Some are etched on the skin, for the whole world to see.
Others are buried deep, so deep, only the heart can truly find them.

Dean Sutherland was the quintessential guy next door. Strong and dependable, with a heart of gold, he knew exactly where his life was headed. Until one fateful night at sea ripped away everything. Now he’s adrift, a man without a purpose.

Cora Carpenter thought she had the perfect life. A successful career, an affectionate husband and a daughter who adores her. But soon that perfect world is crashing down around her, and she’s in need of a fresh start. Moving to a remote town on the coast of North Carolina seems like the perfect plan. That is until she finds herself face to face with a kindred soul from her past.

Dean and Cora have more in common than either are willing to admit. Both deeply rooted in their pain, they can’t help but find hope in each other’s eyes and passion entwined with every touch. But can two broken hearts make a whole?

Will the scars they’ve bared to one another poison their happily ever after, or can love truly heal all?

Weston King knows how to play.

The crazy idea? Marry the competitor.
Elizabeth Dyson, the bride-to-be in question, is on board with the plan. She wants access to her trust fund and can only get it once she marries. Each has something the other wants - all they have to do is pretend to like each other well enough to tie the knot.

But a lover boy like Wes can only stand an empty bed for so long...and even the best of players has to put down his cards eventually.

Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement. I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire. Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

#BlogTour #Review: Charming Hannah

SBPR-Banner-CharmingHannah-BT-1.jpg


Charming Hannah by Kristen Proby 
   Publication Date: February 27th, 2018


CharmingHanna_Amazon_WEB


 Blurb

From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!
Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.
As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.
She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?

Excerpt

Someone is ringing my fucking doorbell. I was at the hospital until the wee hours, I was finally in a deep, lovely sleep, and someone is ringing the bell.
All I know for sure is, this had better not be the damn door-to-door people trying to sell me a vacuum. Or a magazine. Or Jesus.
I wrap my robe around me, stumbling toward the door. I pull it open and am surprised to find an excited Sadie and a ridiculously sexy Brad standing at my door.
“Is that coffee?” I ask.
“For you,” he confirms and holds it out to me.
“Come to mama,” I mutter and take it from his hand, taking a grateful sip. Sadie brushes past my leg, into the house, and curls up on my couch.
“She’s not supposed to be on the furniture,” Brad says.
“My house, my rules,” I reply and take another sip of the one thing in this world I’m addicted to, and give him a once over from head to toe. “You look like you got about as much sleep as I did.”
“Rough night?” he asks without confirming or denying.
“Babies,” I reply with a shrug. “You?”
He just shrugs. “Are you going to ask me in?”
“Sure.” I back up and gesture him into the room. “Sorry, I was sleeping pretty good. My energy level is about equal to a sloth on Xanax.”
“I can leave and let you go back to bed.”
His eyes roam up and down my body, reminding me that I’m just in a robe and nothing else. His green eyes are hot, and every muscle in his body is tight.
Even sleep deprived, I can tell when a man is in the mood.
“You’ve brought me coffee. I’ll never kick you out when you’ve done that.”
“I’ll remember that,” he says with a chuckle.
“Besides, I have plenty of room.” I turn and walk into my bedroom, glancing behind me to see that he’s following me. He makes a hand gesture at Sadie, which I assume means stay. “We can take a nap,” I suggest.
His lips twitch, but he doesn’t say anything when he joins me next to the bed. He takes my coffee and sets both of our cups on the bedside table.
“Is that what you want, Hannah?” he murmurs and skims his fingertips down my arms.
“Eventually.”


Meet Kristen

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
