SYNOPSIS

Twenty years weren’t enough for either of them to forget.

A chance encounter, a missed connection.

Two wayward stars that collided in a turbulent sky, at the right place, but at the

wrong time in both of their lives.

What happens when they meet again?  Do the same unforgettable sparks still fly?

Titan Jennings and Jesenia Van Buren may come from two different worlds but their hearts are still open to second chances.  No matter who or what may stand against them, love is what anchors their lives together.

Love may be infinite but time is not, Missed Connections is a novel about making the very best you can with what little you’ve got.

review

This book…was everything.

I went into this book not ever having read anything by either author before. Immediately, from the prologue, I was sucked in–completely enthralled by their detailed scene setting and emotional story telling. There wouldn’t be any setting the book down until I’d devoured every single word.

Titan, such a big man, with a big heart. An incredible soul.
“If I have my way–it means you and me forever, whatever that my look like.”

Jess, a flawed woman with an uncanny ability to turn her shortcomings into incredible gifts. A true gem.
“You’re talking about a man who wrote to the heavens, searching the universe for you. He’s serious about you and he’ll accept all of your flaws. That’s what lovers do for one another, Mom–they love the hell out of each other, including the tough parts.”

Together, their connection was anything but missed. It was everything. Their love was the kind of love that moved mountains. A love that transcended time and physical barriers. Together, their love anchored them when the world around them spun wildly out of control.

“I don’t register anything but her. I want to take this moment and wrap it up in a box so that I can open it over and over in the coming years and feel this same sense of awe and wonder.”

All was well….until it wasn’t. And that’s where the two authors revealed their gift of storytelling to us. The ability to not only delicately weave our hearts into their story alongside their characters, but also to slice open our chests with their words and rip out pieces of our soul until we were left with nothing but a shredded mess of emotions in the end.

This story was sweet and heartwarming. Brave and touching. And soul crushing. I haven’t read anything like it and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

“Something about you, simply put, set my soul at ease. Maybe just the cadence of your voice or the words you chose to speak. I can’t know.”

Buy this book. Read it. Give a piece of your heart to it. You won’t regret it, nor will you forget about this story for a very long time.

Bravo ladies. This book was everything.

five stars

BLURB

Sometimes, a chance meeting is just the push you need in order to break free from the darkness within…

My name is Emma, I’m 23, and I’ve never been kissed. I’m no virgin…But kissing is too intimate, too intense, and I don’t want that – not ever. I like sex, though, and most of my hook-ups don’t seem to mind the no-kissing part.

But then I meet Daniel, who’s such a geek, and definitely not the kind of guy I’d normally take an interest to. He’s the shy, quiet type, but with such a charming smile, and he makes my heart race – something I’ve never experienced before.

Daniel has his own issues to work through, and I know my hardened heart shouldn’t melt when he looks at me. I really shouldn’t be falling for him, either, but somehow, he manages to tear down my walls, and I’m scared…because once he learns my secrets, he’ll want nothing to do with me.

All I know is that Daniel makes me feel things that I have never felt before – but do I dare let down my walls and confide in him?

Will I let him be my first kiss?

This is my story, and I’ll reveal everything in my own sweet time…

Just don’t expect all the hearts-and-flowers stuff.

Life is messy, and mine is no different…

MY REVIEW

(Please post your review here)

EXCERPT

 

EMMA

His hands roam my back, trailing a whisper-soft touch down my back until they land on my butt. When he squeezes the cheeks tightly, I can’t hold back the low moan that breaks free from my mouth, but I don’t even want to. For once, I want to be free of everything . . . my past . . . my future. . . but definitely not my present.

“What are you so frightened of?” he asks me and buries his head in my hair. Hearing him inhale deeply makes my skin break out in goose bumps.

“That you’ll push me before I’m ready and I’ll end up spilling all my sordid secrets to you . . . ,” I confess on a tremor that I have no doubt he can feel. My palms sweat. My core clenches. My heartbeat quickens. Everything inside me feels as if it is being awakened from a deep sleep, allowing me to truly feel everything for the first time.

He moves slowly away from me, but not so far that I can’t feel his minty breath fanning across my lips. He hesitates for a few beats before growling, “I’m going to kiss you now, and don’t you dare pull away and run away from me. We clear?”

Hearing the sudden demand in his voice, I simply nod, slightly surprised by the change in his manner, and I wet my lips. Agonisingly slow, as if he wants to savour this moment, he draws ever nearer until, finally, his lips brush against mine in a featherlike touch. As soon as I feel them on mine, my body erupts in a powerful flame, and the tingling from before intensifies. His lips brush mine once . . . twice . . . three times, lingering a bit longer each time. When he ends the last one by sucking my lip ring into his warm mouth, allowing my lips to taste more of his, I can’t stand the gentleness any longer. Wrenching my arms free from around his neck, I stand up on my toes, and grab his face, needing to be kissed by this man so desperately. Finally, I slam my mouth onto his, close to combusting with longing for a taste.

Ho-ly . . . fuck!

Groaning, Daniel crushes me to his chest, angles his mouth to fit better to mine, and when I feel his warm tongue probing my lips, asking for permission to enter, I open my mouth on a deep sigh, allowing his tongue to find and tangle with mine. I’m not sure who first sighs in passionate relief, him or me, but all thoughts evaporate when he starts sucking on my tongue, and I’m burning up from within.

Then we become lost in each other and the pleasure, both giving and taking in equal measure. All that matters is our mouths, our tongues, our teeth, and we can’t seem to get close enough. Nothing but this immeasurable heat touches us. We’re in our own small bubble, drinking from one another, and I don’t think I want to come up for air ever again.

Daniel moves one hand from my arse, across my hip, and quickly pulls up my top until he’s touching me, skin to skin. His touch sears through me, making me tear my mouth from his on a gasp. Breathing heavily, he doesn’t stop his sensual assault but merely trails open-mouthed kisses all the way from my chin to my ear and back again. He repeats this over and over before gently sucking on my ear-lobe, causing my knees to buckle, and I grab onto his arms to hold on for dear life. In a bold move, his right hand moves from across my waist to my navel and up my ribcage until his hands brushes the underside of my breasts. Feeling my nipples harden, I lift my right leg and wrap it around his hip, causing my pussy to rub against his cock straining against his jeans. Pressing into me on a deep growl, he kisses down my neck, and I tilt my head to the side, allowing him better access. My eyes feel so heavy that I have no other choice but to let them fall shut, fully immersing myself in the pleasure coursing through my entire being at this significant moment of my life.

My first kiss . . . Yep, there’s fireworks, the angels are singing, and all that crap. Just like all the books say…

My senses are on overload. My pulse beats frantically. My pussy begs for release. Deep inside my head, I know I’m not ready to take this all the way – this is Daniel, after all, and not some random one-night-stand. I want this . . . whatever this is to be significant. To not be some quick shag only meant to satisfy a physical need for a few minutes.

With Daniel, I want . . . more. I want the fairytale . . . the happy-ever-after I have never, not once, believed in since I was ten years old . . . until now.

Excerpt

 

I take another hit of the Campari cocktail. “Have you ever gone swimming in the Mediterranean?”He smiles. “Dozens of times. The water is incredible. If we have time, I want to take you swimming.”

A frisson of anxiety curls in my gut. Not only am I afraid of swimming in the sea, but I also sure as hell don’t want Brandon to see me in a bathing suit again.

“I don’t think so. You know, I’m still afraid of the ocean.”

He laughs. “The Mediterranean isn’t an ocean. It’s a sea. And technically, the part here in Cannes is a bay. So, the water is very calm. Barely a wave.”

“B-but I didn’t bring a bathing suit.” The truth. I never even thought of bringing one since I packed so hastily.

He laughs again and unnerves me. “Don’t worry about it. I’ll buy you a bikini.”

I gulp. A bikini—the last thing I want to be caught dead in! Especially with Brandon. As I envision the worst, he continues.

“There’s probably a boutique right in the hotel.” He regards me coyly. “You may only need a bottom. Most women here sun and swim topless.”

I gulp again. The ring of Brandon’s phone saves me from responding. Thank God, because I’m at a loss for words.

My eyes stay on him as he pulls out his cell from his jeans pocket and glances down at the caller ID. His lips twist and his brows furrow. Katrina? The phone continues to ring while I anxiously circle the rim of my glass with my fingertip. To my relief, he doesn’t answer it, and, in fact, turns it off. “Fuck it,” he mumbles under his breath. His frown morphs into a smile when Antoine personally brings us our meal along with the bottle of wine.

“Bon appetit,” says the jovial man, setting our order down.

The tantalizing, garlicky aroma of the mussels wafts up my nose. My appetite is aroused.

“Antoine makes the best mussels meuniere in all of the Riviera,” Brandon tells me.

Antoine smiles proudly. He uncorks the wine and pours Brandon a bit. Brandon takes a sip and nods approvingly. “C’est parfait.”

It’s perfect. He’s perfect. We share the big bowl of mussels and the crispy fries, sensuously feeding helpings to one another and imbibing the refreshing pink wine between bites. Moans escape my mouth. Not only are the mussels divine, but their tender meat is also charging me with sexual energy. Mussels must be some kind of aphrodisiac. But actually, everything is turning me on. The food, the wine, the setting. And most of all, the mouth-watering man sitting across from me. My eyes don’t waver from him as I feed him the last mussel. His luscious lips clamp down on the edible part and then he sucks on it.

“Mmm,” he moans, closing his eyes as he does. Every ounce of me is buzzing and there’s a wet fire inside my panties. He swallows and licks his upper lip. Another gush of wetness and a rush of hot tingles besiege me. He re-opens his eyes and meets my gaze, holding it fiercely. Before either of us can say word, a staunch, swarthy woman appears on the terrace. Holding an accordion, she heads our way. Once at our table, she stretches out the instrument and starts to serenade us.

“Inoubliable…”

Oh my God! In one word, the song is instantly recognizable. “Unforgettable.” Mama’s favorite song…sung in French. With the husky voice of a fallen angel, the songstress’s moving rendition pulls at my heartstrings. Tears flood my eyes.

“Why are you crying?” Brandon asks, tenderly brushing my unstoppable tears away.

“This was Mama’s favorite song. She sang it all the time. It reminded her of Papa.” Sniffling, I pause while the dark memory fills my head. “It was playing on the Pier when she was shot.”

“I’m sorry. It’s a beautiful song,” he says softly, cutting into the painful, unforgettable memory. His violet eyes burn right through me and his voice grows softer. “Almost as beautiful as you.”

My watering eyes blink several times while my breath hitches in my throat and my heart hammers against my chest. His words swirl around in my head like confetti. They shower my flesh with flecks of heightened sensation and my soul with explosive emotion. I begin to unravel.

And then he does something that totally turns me into vapor. Tracing my tear-soaked jaw, Brandon sings along in English, his voice pure velvet, as devastating as the man he is

“Oh, Brandon!” I weep out his name. The impact of this magical moment has reduced to me to mush.

Still singing and melting my heart, my gorgeous god of a man stands up, and rounding the table, pulls out my chair. “Dance with me, Zoey.” A soft but strong command.

On my next sniffle, I’m in his strong arms, my head resting on his beating heart, my arms draped around his shoulders, as he moves me slowly to the melody and words. Swaying me side to side, he sings into my ear while tears stream down my face and dampen his linen shirt. I lose myself in him with each slow measured step. It’s as if there is no one else in the world but the two of us. Unforgettable…as the word drifts into a hypnotic hum, he draws me closer to him, pressing his lips on my scalp. I feel the warmth of them and his taut body flush against mine. I melt into his ripples and his arousal. He owns me and I don’t have the strength or desire to break away. Physically or mentally.

I’m drunk with emotion. And one forbidden four-letter word. So intoxicated, I can’t think straight or question what I’m doing. I just cling to him. Like a song of love. Finally, I lift my head, and look up at him, my bleary eyes searching for answers. His impassioned gaze holds me captive. My already racing pulse accelerates.

“Brandon—” I don’t know what words will spill out of my mouth next, if any at all. It doesn’t matter. Because on my next heartbeat, he fists my hair and tugs back my head. Before I can take another breath, his lips come crashing down on mine like a meteor. Still humming, he sucks and gnaws my hungry mouth. White-hot balls of passion explode inside me, showering me with fireworks from my head to my toes. I moan into his mouth and then I part my lips, allowing his tongue to find mine. Entwined, our tongues dance sensuously, swirling and twirling to the music and lyrics. Oh my God. This kiss! This incredible kiss! I cup his strong, stubbled jaw, deepening, and extending it, as he draws me closer, one hand gripping my ass. The song drifts into my ears like a magic carpet. The sparks now blind me. I squeeze my eyes shut. Yet, he’s all I see. Never before has anyone been so unforgettable in every way. After what seems like an eternity, the timeless song ends, and he gently breaks his lips away. My heavy eyelids rise like theater curtains, and our glazed eyes lock in a passionate exchange. Shouts of “bravo” from patrons and bystanders reverberate in my ears. I feel myself flush with embarrassment, but Brandon’s dimpled smile fills me with a rush of lust and desire as he holds me tight in his arms.

Tears flow from my eyes. Everything’s been so perfect. The setting. The meal. Our dance. Our kiss. But something is so wrong with this picture. A blaring ambulance races by. The sound of the siren startles me back to my senses, out of my drunken stupor. Brandon’s name burns on my heart. Remorse singes my brain. I want to rip that dazzling smile off his face. What the hell is he doing? What the hell am I doing? He belongs to another. As reality sets in, so does a bitter mix of panic and regret.

 Oblivious, Brandon kisses my tears away and then breathes against my neck. “Baby, let’s make this night unforgettable.”

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

A new danger lurks in the storm…

All I wanted was the perfect quiet Christmas in our new home with my growing family. A huge tree, cookies, carols, you know… some basic frickin’ Yuletide cheer. Of course, because we’re Liz and Bryan “The Blizzard” Marsh, nothing can go to plan.

First, we agree to take in Bryan’s cousin Dani for the winter. In the cult of moody teenagers, she is their Queen. I’d hoped we could connect, but to say we haven’t gotten along would be the understatement of the century.

Then there’s the Market Price Pyro, a local arsonist who is torching buildings all over town. Cops can’t stop him and no one knows what to do. I don’t care what Bryan says. Even though we haven’t been directly targeted, I know we’re linked in some way.

And to top it all off, Mother Nature has veered the storm of the century right to our front door. With a three-day blizzard barreling down on Tellure Hollow, we’re forced to evacuate everyone in town to the Powder Mountain lodge. As the resort caretakers, Bryan and I try to make Christmas as comfortable as we can.

Once we settle into the lodge to wait out the storm, strange things start to happen. It’s only when we’re completely snowed in I start to wonder… Maybe by trying to keep everyone safe from the storm, we’ve put them at even greater danger.

Trapped with the Blizzard is a standalone romantic thriller that takes place after Devoted to the Blizzard. The books in the Tellure Hollow series can be read individually, but are best read in order. This book is a great combination of contemporary and new adult romance featuring two main couples of different age ranges.  This novel contains adult language, sexual situations, and violence. It’s intended for adults.

 EXCERPT ONE

Liz

December 21st

“Another fire has turned deadly. A 19-year-old woman has been found dead after a nighttime blaze in Tellure Hollow started late last night. Jen Wachowicz is live at the scene but first, a look at the weather. Dan?”

The broadcast flipped to a middle-aged man with a middle-American accent. “Thank you, Hillary. As you can see, this storm is a monster and still hasn’t finished growing yet. We’ve been keeping an eye on it and the system seems to have shifted slightly. The jet stream is dipping down from the north a lot further than we originally expected while this swirl of moisture from the south is going to sit and rotate. This could mean one of two things.” The TV flashed with a graphic depicting two possible paths the storm could take. One showed the storm system shearing off to the north, missing us by hundreds of miles. The second, less likely track put the storm almost dead center on Tellure Hollow.

“The storm has the potential to dump two to three feet of snow in some locations,” the weatherman continued. “Other spots, mainly in the mountains, may see twice as much. There are a lot of variables at work with this storm, so there’s plenty of opportunity for this track to change. Anyone in this area,” he said, gesturing to a broad swath of the Rocky Mountains, “should keep an eye on this evolving situation.”

“Dan, what’s the timing of this storm?” Hillary asked.

“Well, Bing Crosby would be happy,” he said with a fake smile. “Timing for this storm in our area should mean we’ll have a very white Christmas. Back to you.”

“Thank you, Dan. As we reported at the top of the hour, the small mountain town of Tellure Hollow is rocked by yet another fire, this time, with deadly consequences. We now go live to Jen at the scene. Jen?”

The young reporter had her finger in her ear, the bright lights washing out the layers of makeup plastered on her face. Wide-eyed, she jumped at the introduction. “Yes, thank you, Hillary. Residents are shocked by the latest development in the ‘Market Price Pyro’ arson spree. The charred remains of the building you see behind me is all that is left of a vacation rental. 19-year-old Rachel Swank, a Denver native, was staying in the cabin with five others. The teenage friends had minutes to escape when the fire broke out in the early morning hours.”

The TV cut to a prerecorded scene. A distressed young woman with tears streaking her face stood wrapped in a rough blanket. She stared at the cabin in disbelief as she spoke into the microphone. “My boyfriend smelled the smoke first. We were able to crawl out on the deck. By the time we realized Rachel wasn’t with us, it was… there was no way.”

The camera returned to Jen’s somber face. “Firemen have confirmed the smoke detectors were stripped of batteries prior to the fire. Because of the incendiary materials used to start the blaze, and the letter found pinned to a tree at the scene, police are pinning this fire on the same arsonist who has plagued the area for weeks. Residents are asked to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behavior.”

I turned off the TV, set the remote on the table with a trembling hand, and spoke without looking at Bryan. I was afraid if I did, the tiny hold over my emotions might crumble.

“You recognized the cabin, right?”

He sighed and leaned forward to put a hand on my back. “It doesn’t mean anything.”

I rolled my eyes. “How many times have we gotten ourselves into trouble by ignoring the obvious? There’s a connection here. I can feel it.”

“Maybe there is, but that doesn’t mean we have anything to do with it. Other things can happen in Tellure Hollow that don’t involve us, you know?” he quipped. “The world doesn’t revolve around us.”

I didn’t completely believe that, but I snorted despite myself. “Of course it does. We’re the most important people in this town,” I chuckled quietly.

“Come on,” Bryan comforted, sliding an arm around my waist. “Don’t borrow trouble. Let’s get Jack fed, start dinner, and enjoy a quiet night.”

“A quiet night?” I scoffed. “With Miss Moody stomping around upstairs? What if she brings the cloud down with her?” Still, sitting so close to him was giving me all sorts of ideas.

“We’ll put on America’s Got Talent or something equally lame to scare her back to her bedroom,” Bryan added.

“Well, aren’t you full of solutions?” I bumped his shoulder with mine, still trying to shake the sinking feeling in my gut.

“That’s me, solving the world’s problems, one compromise at a time.”

Q&A with Adele Huxley

  1. What is the worst job you have had prior to becoming a writer?

This is really funny considering my Tellure Hollow series, but my worst job was working at a ski resort! I was hired in lift ticket sales, so I was the smiling face at the ticket window. My top half was freezing cold and my bottom half was burning up from the space heater at my knees. It was great in the mornings during the rush, but when it was quiet they wouldn’t even let you read or listen to music. So basically six hours in a tiny cubicle, freezing/sweating, with nothing to do… I wanted the job because we could ski for free but I could never bring myself to at the end of the day. I will say, in the world of crappy jobs, these were very first world problems! I’ve lucked out.

  1. Who has been your favorite character to write? Why?

Mason from Chaos was a lot of fun to get into. I got to write from a male perspective, which is always fun. Since he’s English, I had fun working in a lot of slang and unique sayings I picked up from living in the UK. And his special time shifting abilities were a blast to think about.

  1. Who is your favorite book boyfriend from your own books?

Landon DeWitt from the Playing with Power series. He’s not an alpha male, he’s not some domineering jerk. He’s my feminist dream but still sexy as hell. Landon respects Lauren, supports her but doesn’t try to control her in any way, but is totally full of passion.

  1. What is your favorite genre to read?

While I love reading romance, I try to limit it in my TBR list. I’m always afraid I’ll end up copying someone’s idea or mimicking their style without realizing. I enjoy suspense and horror, but I’ve been on a real kick of reading classics like Wuthering Heights.

  1. Where do you get your story inspirations?

I don’t know where they come from, but I wish they’d stop long enough for me to catch up! I have a list at least twenty ideas long, each a new series or standalone novel.  Here’s my artist side coming out…

As a writer, I want to soak up every single thing I can. From things like how light bounces off the water on a murky pond to the physical pain of heartbreak. I never know where I’ll use the experience. The desert heat I felt when I landed in Qatar helped me describe Mecca, though I’ve never been.

Most of my ideas start with asking myself a question. “What would happen if…” “If this happened, then what would happen next?”

  1. What is the most surreal moment you have had as an author so far?

Literally any moment a reader messages me to say they loved my book blows my mind. Actually, even if someone tells me they hated it, I’m still in awe. I’ve always written, even as a kid, so to have my words out there in the world is still the most amazing thing. I even had a lovely woman message to say the Tellure Hollow series rekindled her love for reading! After I got over the initial, “Okay, which one of my friends is pranking me here,” moment, I got teary!

  1. What are you working on right now?

I’m currently writing A Wicked Decision, which is the second book in the Kael Family series. I feel like I’m taking a bit of a chance with these books, even though my readers loved the first one, A Wicked Desire. It’s more erotic romance than my other books and paranormal romance is pretty much nothing but shifters and vampires anymore.

Once I thought about an incubus (a demon who feeds on sexual energy) walking among us like vampires in Twilight, I couldn’t stop myself!

  1. What would be the first level you would visit in the club in A Wicked Desire?

Hahaha! Well… I’d like to think I’m brave enough for Level 5, Anonymous Sex.  I mean, if you’re going to a sex club, you’re all about the pleasure, right? So to do that without knowing who the other person is seems hot as well.

In reality, I’d probably never venture further than Level 3, Voyeurism. I’d be the creeper in the shadows watching! Here’s a link to the club levels! http://www.adelehuxley.com/inside-club-allure/

  1. If you had a super power (like your characters in Chaos) what would you want it to be?

The whole concept for Chaos came from my desire to have that rewinding ability! I daydream about doing ridiculous things in public just to see what people’s reactions would be. Go dance with that old lady, steal the baguette out that guy’s bag and take a big bite… just silly stuff that would probably get me in serious trouble. But if I could shift time back, I could do whatever I wanted without any consequence!

That makes me sound crazy, doesn’t it? Ummm, flying, then. Yeah, definitely flying…

  1. You have written in several genres. Do you enjoy one more than any other?

Probably romantic suspense. To be fair, if you asked me tomorrow, I’d probably have a different answer!

Genre is a different word for focus.

  1. If you could collaborate with one other author, who would it be and why?

Tarryn Fischer, hands down. The lyricism in her writing is so beautiful and I’m attracted to darker stories that deal with gritty topics.

  1. The Blizzard series has such a wide range of characters in it. Who was your favorite “villain” to write in that series?

Noah. There are scenes in Caught by the Blizzard and Saved by the Blizzard that make my skin crawl, even now. He is such an entitled sociopath and so different from anyone I’ve ever met (thank God), I enjoyed getting in his head a little!

AUTHOR BIO  

Adele Huxley is many things. A coffee addict, bad at math, oh… and an author. Her college degree proves several professors believed she is capable of stringing multiple sentences together. Her college debt proves she’s bad at math. Adele also doesn’t like writing in the third person, so she’s decided to finish the rest of this bio like a human being.

If I had two fictional best friends they’d be Luna Lovegood and Wednesday Addams. In fact, I wish with all my heart I was the love child of both.

I’m married to my very own hunky Englishman, love to travel, and enjoy creating new elaborate swear words. I have three cats and move so often I don’t bother unpacking anymore. Seriously. In the past six years I’ve lived in 5 different states, 3 different countries, and, for a short time, out of my suitcase!

The best part of this job is meeting and talking with people who love words as much as I do. Come say hi! All contact info can be found on http://www.adelehuxley.com

The Cornerstone by Kate Canterbary

Title: The Cornerstone

Series: The Walsh Series #4

Author: Kate Canterbary

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Release Date: December 9, 2015

 

Blurb

 

A tough-as-nails businesswoman. An arrogant Navy SEAL. A power struggle with no end in sight.

Some people hook-up at weddings. Others break a hotel room bed (and a table, and a desk, and some complimentary bathrobe belts) and discover they’ve been surviving on bargain basement orgasms their entire lives.

The last one? Yeah. That’s all me.

She’s driven and demanding…

I wasn’t always a bitch. There’s a dirty little trick to succeeding in business: the sweet and innocent rarely survive. I fought my way up from nothing, and I don’t bend for anyone.

Until Will Halsted ties me to a headboard and makes me his…for now.

One wild, filthy night turns into another, and then…we can’t stop. Each time we’re together is more addictive than the last, but it’s nothing more than a sexy escape from reality.

Or is it?

He’s never walked away from a challenge…

I wasn’t always a warrior but now it’s in my bones and blood. That’s what years spent in the Special Forces does to a man. My entire life is classified: where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, what I’ve done, and there’s no mission too dangerous.

Until I realize that falling for Shannon Walsh is like trying to swim against a riptide. She’s going to tear me up and toss me to the shore, and I’ll love every minute of it.

Every time I’m down range, I want her counting the hours until I’m back. Waiting for me. She’s done it before; she’ll do it again.

Or will she?

They’re wrong for each other in every possible way…

Or are they?

Excerpt

 

Her pale brows drew together in a vicious scowl, and I recognized I was wrong about Shannon. She wasn’t a socialite, not at all. She was a fighter, and a scrappy one at that.

“In other words,” she said, “I run this town and I don’t need any help doing it.”

She shrugged and now that shoulder was all the way exposed. A wild splash of freckles ran across her skin, and I was too tired, too fed up with this conversation, too tightly wound to do anything but imagine tasting her right there. I pushed off from the counter and stared at the sea, all while searching for enough discipline to make it back to my room without doing something unbelievably stupid.

But instead of leaving the bar right then, I stopped beside Shannon and studied those freckles. “Like the tail of a comet,” I murmured.

I reached out and traced a line from the ball of her shoulder across her collarbone. Then my gaze shifted to her mouth and those defiant, sinful lips, and my other hand was sliding up her neck and into her hair.

I didn’t know why I did it. Maybe it had been too long since I touched a woman. Maybe I couldn’t handle the post-deployment horny as well as I used to. Or maybe…maybe I wanted to get into a power struggle with Shortcake.

My forehead rested against Shannon’s as I moved into her space, crowding her and feeling all five-foot-nothing of her pressed against me.

“What are you doing?” she whispered.

Author Bio

 

 

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people–be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane–ever since. Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Forbid Me by M. Robinson

★★BLOG TOUR★★

TITLE: FORBID ME (The Good Ol’ Boys 2)

(Standalone within a series)

AUTHOR: M. ROBINSON

COVER MODEL Kevin Lajeunesse

COVER DESIGN The Final Wrap

<br />

<br />

It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.

I never thought it would come to this…

I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but

eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back

and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be

hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take the

burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend’s sister.

If there is one person I’d willingly go to hell and back for

it was…

Lillian Ryder

Standalone within a series. New Adult Contemporary Romance:

Strong language and sexual content, not intended for readers under 18. This is

a Full Length Novel

<br />

★FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED★

<br />

I took a moment when I was fully inside of her, leaning back

to take a good look at her, wanting to remember her just this way, always. Her

long silky brown hair spread all over my sheets, the way her cheeks were

slightly flushed and how the blush crept down to her neck, how her lips were

swollen from my touch and her serene eyes glazed over.

So beautiful.

So fucking beautiful.

So fucking mine.

I placed a soft kiss on the pulse on her neck, loving the

feel of it beating against my lips. Her dark brown eyes watched me adoringly as

I took what I needed. What she gave. I peered up at her and she shyly smiled

while I kissed my way down to her breasts, taking her perfect round nipple into

my mouth, making her moan. I fucking loved it when she moaned.

It made my cock twitch inside her.

“Jacob, come up here. I want to feel all your weight on me.”

I placed my body completely on hers, like I knew she loved,

caging her in with my arms around her head so that my hands could caress her

face. My torso touching her chest and my legs firmly locked beside hers. Every

time I thrust in she could feel the mass of my body movement, inclining her a

little higher each time. I softly kissed her, taking my time with each stroke

of my tongue as it weaved with hers. Savoring the velvety feel of my mouth

claiming hers, thrusting in and out of her tight wet core a few times before I

pulled away needing to look into her eyes again. I loved seeing every emotion I

felt through her gaze. It mirrored every feeling that was displayed inside of

me, to a degree I never quite understood, but I didn’t care because it was

there. It was for me.

Just. For. Me.
