Excerpt:

Cecelia watched with amusement as his footsteps faltered and then stuttered to a stop. The bewilderment on his face when he turned to her brought a giggle to the fore.

“Seriously? You expect me to sleep in . . . on . . . that?” With great reluctance, he turned back and gestured toward the offending item in question.

She twirled past him and hooked an arm around one of the four interwoven, antique iron posts shaped in the form of tree trunks supporting the intricate metal canopy above. She flung her other arm open to indicate her extremely feminine bedroom and whimsical bed, and breezed out, “Welcome to my boudoir.”

She sat down on the white-on-white jacquard bedspread and patted the space next to her. “Despite its fragile appearance, my bed is sturdy, very comfortable, and extra-large, so never fear, you will fit.” She flung her torso back onto the bed, arms stretched above her head, her eyes following the leafy pattern above. “I found it in a darling shop in the South of France five years ago and just had to have it.” Her laugh was light and tinkling, as whimsical as her quirky antique bed.  

Aidan’s large presence loomed over her. He supported his weight on extended arms, dipping the mattress beneath her shoulders. Her legs, dangling off the edge of the bed, were pinned between his, and his upper body hovered over hers. Her eyes, sparkling with amusement, met his oh-so-serious gaze.

“It better not find its way to Texas,” he drawled in warning.

Her grin widened. “And if it does? Whatcha gonna do, cowboy?”

“Tie you to those posts with one of the scarves you seem to favor and have my wicked way with you.”

Cecelia’s belly fluttered at the promise of his words, and her brows lifted in response. “In that case, it would behoove me to ensure it finds its way to Texas,” she replied huskily.

Aidan’s eyes widened as her meaning — and what he’d said — sank in. He’d spoken without thought. He groaned as a dull flush crept up his face, and he made a move to straighten. “You scramble my brains.”

Her arms found their way to his neck, stopping his retreat. “I rather like your brains scrambled,” she murmured. Her exploring fingers spread over the shorn hair at his nape, and she tugged him closer, her laughter fading as desire replaced amusement.

“I have many scarves,” Cecelia whispered as his lips hovered over hers, their breaths mingling.

His body lowered as his elbows bent in answer to her pull. He tugged her lower lip between his teeth, eliciting a moan from her, scattering her thoughts.

His teeth released their hold, lips moving closer to her ear. “Does bein’ tied to your bed tickle your fancy, Lily?” he whispered, his lips continuing to kiss a path across her hairline. She’d the power to unleash a racy side in him he’d never known existed.

She moaned, angling her head just so to expose more of her neck. Being a clever man, he followed her invitation, leaving her breathless in the wake of his lips. “You have no idea . . . how tickled my . . . fancy is right now, cowboy.”

He sank lower, eliminating the little space between them. He asserted extra pressure — perfect pressure — aligning all the right body parts. “I think I might’ve some idea, sweetheart,” he said hoarsely, “as I am in the same predicament.”

They both moaned. He lifted his head and repositioned his lips on hers. The tip of his tongue sought entry, and she gladly opened to him. An intimate duel ensued, fueling the fire building between them.

“Oh, Lily, I love your bed! It’s sick!” The loud shriek was vicious in its untimely interruption.

Aidan stilled. Groaning, he pushed himself upright, his movement sluggish and reluctant. His gaze embraced the gorgeous woman, still spread out on the bed, one arm flung above her head, her chest heaving in rapid movement.

She was breathless and undone. Because of him.

His plan had been to keep his physical distance from her for a while. To get to know her a bit better — build a relationship — before becoming intimate.  He raked his hand across his face. It was going to be harder than he’d anticipated.

Tearing his eyes from the alluring image, he focused on his daughter.

COVER REVEAL: Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny By Piper Rayne

COVER REVEAL: Confessions Of A Naughty Nanny By Piper Rayne

THE BAILEYS #6
Release Day: January 7

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business.

I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

COVER REVEAL: Meant For You By: Sherilee Gray

COVER REVEAL: Meant For You By: Sherilee Gray

BOOK BLURB

At twelve years old, I was torn from my family.

At fourteen I met her: my reason to draw breath.

One look into Everly Williams’s big brown eyes and I knew I’d do anything to protect her. And for eight years I did. She was my world. My best friend.

But afraid I’d lose her, I held on too tight. Became a dark cloud blocking her sun. So I did what I needed to, and walked away. I hurt us both.

Now I’m home, and need Everly back in my life. Only everything is different. We’re different. My body burns for her when she’s near. And after one explosive kiss, I know she feels it too. I’ll do whatever it takes to earn her trust again.

Because I don’t want what we had before. I want it all…for a lifetime.

EXCERPT

We ate dinner, and I hung around for about an hour. 

But all I could think about was Everly. So damn close.

I needed to leave before I did something I promised Cal I wouldn’t

I said my goodbyes and was at my bike when Everly walked right out of the barn, like I’d summoned her through the sheer force of my desperation to see her. I couldn’t take my eyes of her. Fuck, how I’d missed her. I’d missed my best friend.

Her auburn hair was down and wild, like it often was. She was wearing cut off denim shorts and a red tank top, both of which hugged her curves, curves she hadn’t had quite so much of before I moved away.

Everly was short, the top of her head fitting under my chin perfectly. She was kind of petite, and now she was also built. A small curvy package. 

I clenched my teeth. Don’t go after her. Don’t do it.

I cleared my throat, because my vocal cords were suddenly tight as hell, and because I was a glutton for punishment. Goddammit, I wanted her to look at me. 

She spun around, and as soon as her eyes hit me, they widened.

I lifted my hand, like I was preparing to approach a wild horse, my mouth opening, to say something, anything—

Everly took off, running,in the opposite direction.Fucking running

I’d tried, Jesus, I’d tried to leave her alone, to give her time, but I couldn’t deal with this, the way it made me feel, the way she had to be feeling to fucking flee from me like I was a goddamn axe murderer.

It was like a gazelle running from a lion, instincts kicked in and there was no holding back. My feet were already moving, pounding across the field after her. “Stop, Everly.”

She veered left shooting down the side of the barn and I followed, chasing her around the barn like a damned fool until we ended up back where we started. She shoved the door open to the ranch hands quarters as I came flying around the corner. 

“Eves wait…”

She lifted her hand, saluted me with her middle finger, and slammed the door in my face—then locked it.

I stood there braced against the doorframe, breathing heavily, heart racing, but not from the impromptu run, not entirely, but from my desperation to talk to her, from being so close to her.

Being barred from her.

“Let me in, Eves. We need to talk…you know we do.” 

There was nothing but silence from inside.

I’d been without her for a year and a half, and it had sucked, a lot. More than I could even put into words. I wanted her back. I wanted what we had back.

How the fuck was I going to make this right?

COVER REVEAL: Demise Of A Self-Centered Playboy By Piper Rayne

You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.

The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.

Demise Sign #1 – You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.

Demise Sign #2 – Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.

Demise Sign #3 – Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.

Demise Sign #4 – Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.

Demise Sign #5 – You start thinking of other people before yourself.

Demise Sign #6 – You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent.

Demise Complete.

HARLOW

I thought I knew the truth, but I didn’t.=

Secrets surround me, every aspect of my life was a lie.

The Bishop brothers are the only beacon of light in my dark world. They’re the only ones that can protect me, the only ones that truly care.

Finally I have the leverage I need to escape my father’s clutches, to fight back, but when the truth comes out, and the puzzle pieces of our pasts start to come together…

I’m left wondering if there will ever be a future for the Bishop’s and me?

BANKS

We couldn’t watch her marry a man she doesn’t love.

We had to do something, even if it was drastic and completely reckless.

Loving a Lockwood is forbidden, taboo, wrong in so many ways, but we don’t care about what our father or anyone else thinks.

All we care about is Harlow.

She belongs with us and we’ll do everything in our power to keep her safe… everything to free her from the hold her family has on her.

To us she’s not just a Lockwood, and we’re not Bishops stuck in the same vicious cycle of hate and love.

EXCERPT

“I have an idea.” Oliver is the first to break the silence. 

“Well, what is it?” Banks asks impatiently. 

“We could bring you to our father…” His voice trails off, and I wonder if he’s being serious or not. 

“Your father would let you bring me to your house?” I ask, trying to hide the surprise from my voice. 

Sullivan shrugs, “What’s the worst he could do? Tell us to leave? We can’t let you near your father right now, so the next best thing would be our father.” 

“Maybe he can piece the missing pieces of your puzzle together?” Oliver adds. 

“Or he could be a huge prick and make things ten times worse,” Banks mutters under his breath. Oliver and Sullivan look at him, their features hardening. 

“You aren’t helping.” 

Banks lifts his hands as if to say he’s innocent. “Look I’m not trying to be a negative nelly here. I want Harlow to get all the answers she needs just as much as you both do, but dad isn’t going to take well to us bringing a Lockwood home.” Our gazes meet as he says the next words, “Last names don’t mean shit to us, but dad still sees her as the enemy and I don’t want her caught in his crosshairs.” 

To many I might be weak, but I am mighty, and if I want answers I may have to cross bridges that shouldn’t be crossed. I may have to do things that I shouldn’t do, but I’ll do what I need to do. No one is going to dictate what happens in my life anymore. 

“Let’s do it.” 

“Seriously?” Banks runs a hand through his hair as if he’s agitated. Was he not expecting me to go along with this? 

“Yes, I want answers. Your dad has some. Let’s do it. What’s the worst that could happen?” 

“Kay, I’ll make arrangements and tomorrow we’ll visit our parents,” Oliver announces as if it’s final to his brothers. 

Banks leaves the room a moment later and Sullivan walks over to the bed and crawls into the vacant spot left beside me. 

“Is he going to be okay? I ask. I kind of want to chase after him but know he needs the space. 

“He’ll be fine. He’s just worried what our dad will say or try to do to you.” 

I nod, understanding completely. 

“Our father won’t touch you. Not if he wants to live.” Oliver’s words have a cold edge to them, and I shiver wondering if he really means that. Would he, and his brothers go against their parents for me? Would they risk it all for me? 

I guess we’ll find out.

REVIEW: Make Me Fall By Ember Leigh

REVIEW: Make Me Fall By Ember Leigh

SYNOPSIS

There’s one rule in my family.

Stay away from the Daly brothers.

We were raised to know them as users. Manipulators. But I only ever saw Connor as the enigmatic senior hottie who dropped into fifth period to teach us about the perils of drunk driving.

When my first big girl job out of college ends up with us working at the same company, it’s heart throb city all over again. Except he’s way ahead of the game. Successful, talented, put together. I’m just a frumpy twenty-something in a quarter life crisis who doesn’t know a glue stick from a makeup highlighter.

He would never want me, even though he’s all I ever wanted in secret. So when we cross paths one night at the bar and one drink leads to another, he slaps me with an offer I can’t refuse.

Accompany him back to Bayshore, flight included.

Only stipulation? Pose as his girlfriend.

Our families will flip, but I’m not strong enough to say no to those baby blues, especially if it means I’ll have a chance to go on vacation with my adolescent heart throb.

We’ve got two weeks to prove we’re head over heels for each other.

Which is just enough time to make me fall.

MY REVIEW

* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *

The Humor in this book gets me, and Kinsley and her unrequited crush just does my heart in. Conner is a guy who needed a reality check and got one.

How Kinsley talks herself into still believing this is all but a ruse to get under his families skin, and how she carries herself in the face of their frosty reception of her shows how amazing she is as a person.

Connor his character bothered me, in many ways. Mainly because I grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone’s business, who you dates, who slept with who and who was on what drugs…. AHH Small Town living, such a great time.

In some ways it was like Connor never really left high school, where as Kinsley’s issues were fresh and more raw, Connor needed someone to take him out of that popular kid, high school mentality and Kins seemed to be that person. Whether she knows it or not, that is a completely different story.

This is my very first Ember Leigh book and I fell that I will be coming back for more.
