Title: Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe Author: Amelia Kingston Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Day: October 1st
About Truce? Hating Elijah Monroe:
A small town
enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy.
Harper Delaney is a newly certified elementary
school teacher with the mountain of student loan debt to prove it. Moving back
to her claustrophobically small hometown is about as tempting as two week old
sushi, but the allure of free rent and a guaranteed summer teaching job are
On the hunt for her dream job in San Francisco,
Harper just needs to survive the summer without murdering Elijah Monroe. He may
have grown into a scorchingly hot fireman, but he’s still her nemesis. Harper
gave Elijah her heart when she was sixteen, and never forgave the jerk for not
wanting it. Probably for the best, since he’s also her stepbrother.
Elijah still makes Harper’s blood boil and heart
race. And he knows it. She’ll wipe that smug smirk off his gorgeous face before
leaving town. The only question is if she wants to do it with a kiss or a slap.
I know it’s been too long since I’ve had a date when my
first thought at seeing a firetruck pull up outside the school isn’t “Oh, no.
Where’s the fire?” but “Oh, yes. Where are the firemen!” I’m practically
drooling when I see him step out of the truck. His tall frame is broad and
solid. Every inch of his more than six-foot body is carved from stone. This guy
is cut. Ripped. Hot. If I faint, will he give me mouth to mouth?
My heart drops into my stomach and a weird little squeak
leaves my throat when I realize who it is. I might legit need CPR. He was cute
as a boy, but he’s drop dead gorgeous as a man.
He’s not a man. He’s the devil. The bane of my adolescent
existence. My stepbrother.
I drag my eyes up to Elijah’s face. He looks put together
and mature in a way that I’m not prepared for. His hair is the same warm brown,
but now it’s cut short and tidy. He’s clean shaven, making those full lips pop.
Lips which are curved up into a familiar smug smirk as his bright green eyes
sparkle with devious satisfaction. He caught me checking him out and he wants
me to know it. He struts across the parking lot, shoulders back and chest
puffed up. He’s the same pompous jerk I remember from high school, breaking
hearts and causing trouble.
I look around the school yard and everyone has turned to
watch the spectacle. The kids are all ogling the firetruck. The teachers and
assistants are all ogling Elijah. I can’t control my groan. I cross my arms and
scowl at him.
He’s still a few feet away when I snap, “What are you
doing here?” I’m loud enough half the playground can hear me. My happy teacher
persona is a distant memory. I’m an angry, frustrated sixteen-year-old again,
fighting the magnetic pull drawing me to him. Was it always this strong?
Doesn’t matter. I’ll never give in to it.
“Nice to see you too, Short Stack,” he quips, crossing his
arms to match me.
“Enough with that stupid nickname already. It’s been almost
a decade. Grow up, Elijah,” I fume. “Plus, it doesn’t even make sense.”
He looks down at the ground, trying to hide his smile. He
loves winding me up. And I fell for it. Now I’m more annoyed than ever.

Amelia Kingston is many
things, the most interesting of which are probably California girl, writer,
traveler, and dog mom. She survives on chocolate, coffee, wine, and sarcasm.
Not necessarily in that order.
She’s been blessed with

30 countries across 5 continents (I’m coming for you next, Antarctica!). She’s

pouts when her dinner is 5 minutes late.
She writes about strong,
stubborn, flawed women and the men who can’t help but love them. Her irreverent
books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to
appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the
ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth

Be the fucking lion and tackle your goddamn prey.”

About ALWAYS WITH YOU by Layla Hagen – available September 10th
Ruling his LA hotel empire through determination and hard work, Reid Davenport is a mystery to many. Despite the media’s interest in him, Reid steers clear of the limelight–until his life is broadcast in the tabloids, endangering not only his privacy, but that of his parents and his little sister.
He’d do anything to protect them…except listen to the fiery and intelligent PR pro, who’s as beautiful as she is tempting. Every time she walks into his office, he fantasizes about bending her over his desk and kissing her. Every time she smiles at him, he wants to pull her closer and not let go.
Hailey Connor doesn’t take on uncooperative clients. But the second she meets Reid, she’s compelled to stay and help, even if she must fight his own broody ass to do it. He’s bossy, demanding and so sinfully alluring that she knows she’s in over her head. Reid may be infuriating, but when he talks about his family, she can’t help but melt a little.
With every kiss, they grow closer. With every touch, they fall deeper. They’re opposites…yet perfect matches. But when their different worlds collide, will it tear them apart or bring them together?
