Excerpt

Copyright 2022 Mel Walker

He looks good. Too good.

I stare into Elijah’s Stevenson’s intense hazel eyes, and I’m transported back in time. His gaze has changed; it carries with it more confidence and self-assurance than the nervous tic he used to possess. His inability to maintain eye contact with me had always given me a thrill, made me feel special, gave me a sense of power. His ability to swing on an emotional pendulum was one of my most favorite things.

One second, he’d forget who I was, and we’d be just two friends, hanging out and enjoying the little moments, something other boys in my class never understood. They always looked to impress me with their over-the-top gestures. Not Elijah. Once he got over the nervousness and he relaxed enough to reveal himself, we shared some truly special moments. Moments I didn’t get to share with many other people, moments I know he didn’t share with anyone else.

And then there were moments like this.

Friends don’t greet one another this way. Yet, we were always only friends. When these greetings started, I never expected that they would last. I expected he’d want more. I waited. Waited for him to take charge, and every single time he retreated. Until that very last time.

But it’s been ten years, and I’m different. I’m a shell of the princess who ruled the hallways at Spring Hills High. The ten years were not nearly as kind to me as they’ve been to him.

He has grown into a man. A tall, dark, handsome man with designer clothes, a New York City strut, and a confidence he never possessed before. This time his gaze doesn’t falter. We lock eyes, and it’s me who looks away first.

I inhale the expensive cologne, and images of equally tall models and trust fund women on his arm invade. My feet retreat, taking with me the confidence I possessed a moment ago. I realize now that he’s in the driver’s seat and the best I can do is hold on tight and pray he leads us to the promised land.

Review: Princess and the Player by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review: Princess and the Player by Ilsa Madden-Mills

A masquerade ball brings together an NFL player and a penniless princess in this smart and sexy romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.

Level-headed Francesca Lane never thought she’d miss her own wedding. But when her fiancé betrays her, she puts on her wedding dress and ditches the altar for a masquerade ball—at a sex club.

There, she meets NFL star Tuck Avery, dressed as a prince and hiding behind a mask as he celebrates his birthday. For one night, Francesca and Tuck indulge in a wickedly incognito affair. No names. No strings. And the masks don’t come off.

Unfortunately, Francesca soon realizes her prince is the wealthy jock who lives in the penthouse of her apartment building. His hobbies include parties and supermodels—or so the tabloids say. Another shallow jerk is the last thing Francesca needs, so she vows to keep Tuck from recognizing her, not that she’s his type anyway.

But fate has a teeny-tiny trick up her sleeve… a plus sign on a pregnancy test. Can this tormented prince accept love, or will he push his princess away forever?

Princess and the Player is a complete stand-alone romance with nuanced characters and a swoony happily ever after.

MY REVIEW

Princess and the Player follows the story of Tuck and Francesca. Tuck and Francesca were two lost and broken souls who met at the most unconventional places. They end up spending one glorious night together, with no strings attached. However, fate had other plans for these two. Suddenly their paths are crossing at every possible chance and despite not wanting a relationship, Tuck and Francesca are powerless to fight the pull they feel toward one another…

Princess and the Player is a fast-paced and addictive read. I devoured this book in just a few short hours and wild horses couldn’t have made me put this book down. I was consumed by the entertaining banter and explosive chemistry. I loved the push and pull between Tuck and Francesca. Neither one of them was perfect and had their fair share of flaws, but when they set their hearts on something, they’re not afraid to fight for what they want. I loved watching these two navigate past their fears and disappointments, and thoroughly enjoyed their journey to happily ever after.

This story was everything I was hoping it would be and in the end, it left me with the biggest smile on my face. If you’re looking for an entertaining, swoon-worthy story that has just the right amount of angst, you won’t want to miss Princess and the Player.

Review: Wicked by Amo Jones

Review: Wicked by Amo Jones

I remember the day he walked through our front door, bloodied and broken with the kind of torment that breeds, but never dies. Papa had one rule for him. Stay away from his daughter.

He didn’t.

Years later, he crashes back into my life and tears down all of the walls I built up around myself. We’re both hiding secrets, but when the mafia world collides with the MC world, the shrapnel could destroy everyone around us.

Now the president of the Chicago chapter, not even I was prepared for his return. He’s going to see that I’m no longer the precious princess of the Cosa Nostra, and I won’t play his games anymore.

He’ll play mine.

This is a story about two souls destined to be together, but who are trapped in bodies that hate each other. It’s what happens when you both let love kill you.

MY REVIEW

“She stared at me from across the room. It was the exact reason why I loved her. She was reckless with her need for me. She didn’t give a fuck who was watching. I felt it, she sure as fuck felt it, and I’m one thousand percent everyone in this goddamn room felt it.”

“Love was a distraction to destruction. Nothing more, and nothing less.”

“Because with Wicked, he needs to own you. All of you. Every animalistic tendency that man has comes out to play with you when he’s fucking you. He fucks to own you, not sleep with you.”

After weeks of teasing, Wicked is finally here! And let me tell you, this book is twisted and boundary-pushing. It makes you question everything and leaves you on the edge of your seat wanting more…

One thing I can count on with an Amo Jones book is that she’s going to pull out all the stops and test every single one of my boundaries and Wicked is no exception. Wicked is intense from the very first page and will keep you captivated the entire time. This story hits the ground running and had my head spinning, not knowing which way was up or which was down. The romance, web of lies, betrayal, and twists kept me on my toes the entire time. And just when I thought I knew the direction this story was going to take, the carpet was pulled out from under me, and I fell further into the rabbit hole.

Wicked is probably one of Amo Jones’ darkest books yet and isn’t for the faint of hearts. Wicked is brilliantly written and completely consuming. This is the kind of book that you’re going to hate one minute and love the very next. The chemistry between Wicked and Ruby is explosive and will leave you all twisted up in knots. If you’re looking for a hearts and flowers type of read, Wicked is not for you. But, if you love dark and twisted tales, go into this story blind. Heed the warnings. Trust the process, and enjoy because you are about to be taken on a crazy, wild ride.

“The love story itself is stirring and emotional, and Emily and Bobby’s second chance feels well-earned.”—Publishers Weekly review for Escape Girl

Blurb

Sometimes, the real story isn’t the beautiful city girl returning to her small town to save Christmas—it’s the townie chick who never left.

Jane Zielinski has her hands full this December, working three jobs and directing a homemade reality dating web series, Single Bells, as a stunt to keep her small town competitive with the ritzy resort towns luring tourists. Then the gorgeous Bella Bradley, Jane’s childhood BFF who had no qualms about skipping town when times got tough, returns with handfuls of cash and her smoking-hot business partner Nate Wright on her arm.

Jane can’t believe she’s being upstaged again, especially when Bella uses the Single Bells activities to rekindle a romance with her high school boyfriend—the man Jane had envisioned her future with. So if a little competition could convince Bella to leave town—again—Jane is ready to take the mittens off. And she’s not above sabotage, cheating, or flirting with Nate to win. Let the reindeer games begin…

Excerpt

Copyright 2022 Michelle Dayton

The stranger had a British accent, dark hair, funky glasses, and wore both an expensive cashmere sweater and a bored expression. He couldn’t have looked less local if he’d tattooed “I’m from away” on his forehead. “Do you know the Wi-Fi password, by any chance?”

Of course I did; I’d installed it. “Nope.”

OK, that was unnecessary. Don’t piss off the tourists, Jane. Jim’s pub couldn’t handle a one-star Yelp review from some asshole.

He threw up his hands. “No sign posted with the Wi-Fi info. Nobody pouring drinks.” He let out an exasperated huff. “No wonder this place is a dying shithole, right? The bar, the whole town.”

Strong words, stranger. Maybe I agreed, but I was allowed to think so because I lived here. He, however, could take his opinion and shove it straight up his ass.

The need for caffeine was real. I stood, put my palms on the bar, and boosted myself over it.

The stranger put his phone on the bar with an angry slap. “Are you kidding? Are you the bartender? You’ve just been sitting there ignoring me the whole time I’ve been here?”

I almost wanted to say yes. Because that haughty, entitled tone in his prettily accented voice made his face a prime candidate for a fist.

“I don’t work here,” I said flatly, although I did pick up shifts in the summers sometimes. “I just know the owner.”

The stranger cocked his head and considered me. Changed tactics. “Do you know him well enough to grab me a beer?” He smiled, and it changed his whole damn face. He went from haughty and bored to…zing! There was a teasing tone in his wry voice now, complimented by curved lips and a flash of white teeth. A knowing, flirtatious glint in his dark eyes.

Hmm. This was a person used to getting everything he wanted.

Too bad for him that I hated people like that.

Maybe I didn’t want a soda after all. Maybe I wanted something else. I slowly took a pint glass from the shelf and pulled a draft of Spotted Cow, all while making extreme eye contact with the stranger’s amused gaze.

But instead of sliding the beer over the bar, I walked around it, grabbed my laptop, and strolled slowly to the back office, enjoying an enormous gulp of the beer on my walk. I ignored his “what the hell” and called over my shoulder, “Enjoy your stay in our shithole town.”

About Michelle Dayton

There are only three things Michelle Dayton loves more than sexy and suspenseful novels: her family, the city of Chicago, and Mr. Darcy. Michelle dreams of a year of world travel – as long as the trip would include weeks and weeks of beach time. As a bourbon lover and unabashed wine snob, Michelle thinks heaven is discussing a good book over an adult beverage.

A Love Like That

Jeanna Hartley

Release Date: December 2nd

After my wife died, I never expected to fall in love again, let alone with her much younger sister.

Elle’s too young for me, though.

Too vibrant and cheerful to be saddled with a grumpy widower and two little kids.

Besides, she’s only here for a few months before she moves on to follow her dreams.

And there’s no way we could be together even if she were staying.

It doesn’t seem to matter how often I remind myself of all the reasons why we can’t, or shouldn’t be together, my body won’t listen.

Ever since Elle moved in, all I can think about is her. All I want is her.

She restored order to my home. She got my kids to smile and laugh again. Even I’m smiling more.

For the first time since my wife’s death, I feel alive, hopeful.

I already said goodbye to my childhood sweetheart, my wife, and the mother of my children.

And I know I have to let Elle go; I’m just not sure if I can.

Releasing: May 2, 2023

Cover Designer: Hang Le

Photographer: Regina Wamba

It’s been a long time since Walker Ironside left behind Scotland and the memories that haunt him. Yet after years of traveling the world as a bodyguard, Walker misses his homeland enough to return. To a village in the Scottish Highlands that plays host to an exclusive members-only club, Ardnoch Estate. If not happy, Walker is content working with the elite security at the club and maintaining his bachelor lifestyle. What he doesn’t need is distraction in the form of the enticing but too-young newcomer, single mother Sloane Harrow.

Sloane never imagined she’d get pregnant at sixteen. Or that a decade later she’d escape from California with her daughter, Callie, to start over in the Scottish Highlands. Hidden and safe from Callie’s dangerous father, Sloane is satisfied with their new lives. Her daughter is happy. Sloane has a stable job, a quaint cottage, a passion for baking that might just be turning into a business, and a huge crush on brooding security guard Walker Ironside. Unfortunately, the grumpy Scot seems immune to Sloane’s charm, but she can’t help but try to seduce him with cupcakes and baked treats whenever the opportunity arises.

However, when someone arrives in Ardnoch intent on destroying Sloane’s life, Walker is the first to step forward to protect her and Callie. Even if it means giving into temptation and awakening his own demons. Because in doing so, Walker faces failing not only to shield Sloane from her past, but to safeguard her against his own.
