Honey-Queen

Promo: Honey Queen by Christina Mercer

Honey Queen by Christina Mercer

Young Adult Fantasy

Love is honey sweet, but it comes with a fatal sting . . .

Melaina Maris needs wings to fly the gap between loving Sam and her family’s ancient curse that forces carnal love and then kills the male lovers. She won’t let the same fate that killed her father befall another. She refuses to allow her goddess-created bloodline to continue. But there’s no easy way out, especially after the curse turns her into the Honey Queen—savior to honey bees—intensifying her charms.

To help her fulfill the curse’s demands in the least harmful way, her grandmother takes her to mate with terminally ill Boyd. But Boyd’s gay. And an expert in mythology. Instead of having sex, Melaina learns how she might summon the goddess who created the first ancestor bee-charmer and cursed her bloodline. Melaina’s magic—tears to save honey bees from endangerment—could be enough to persuade the goddess to end the curse. But an unexpected discovery soon changes that hope, spinning Melaina into a swarm of love, friendship and death.

Synopsis: Interior designer Carrie Newman could not have envisioned a more perfect life for herself. She had a great job doing what she loved, wonderful friends, and a close relationship with her sister and brother-in-law. Add in an amazing man who she’d hoped would soon become her husband, and her life was perfect. Until one devastating decision ruins her relationship and changes the course of her life.

Determined to make a new start, Carrie leaves Texas and heads to Palm Beach to pick up the pieces of her shattered and broken life. The last thing she expects is to find herself attracted to her first client at her new job—Brad Larson, who has proven himself time and time again to be cad.

But there’s something beneath the surface of Brad’s arrogant exterior that keeps her craving more of him—something almost sweet that Carrie can’t seem to resist.

Is Carrie ready to take another chance on romance? And will this new design of her life prove to be the right one…?

New York COVER ONLY

New Release: Love Discovered in New York by Danielle Allen

 
 
 
 
 
SYNOPSIS:
 
The
Rebel
 
Mya Washington is a rebel. Or at least,
that’s what her family has always said. As the youngest of a set of triplets,
she has always been the more rebellious of the three…even though she never
considered herself a rebel.
Outspoken? Yes.
Rule Breaker? Sometimes.
Trouble Maker? Nev—occasionally.
Growing tired of being typecast and
misunderstood, Mya moves to New York looking for a fresh start away from the
life she grew up in and out of the shadow of her older sisters.  Striking out on her own may have put a strain
on the family dynamic, but it’s the new beginning Mya was looking for.
But after the unexpected death of her
mother, she is blindsided yet again by a wedding invitation she didn’t see
coming. Her father’s upcoming marriage only cements the wall she’s put up
around her heart. Because if her father could be such an utter disappointment,
why should she even attempt to open up to any man?
Enter Colton Davis.

EXCERPT:
“What are you doing?” I asked breathily, licking my lips and
silently begging him to kiss me.
He didn’t answer at first. He looked at me predatorily before
leaning down to nibble on my neck. The feeling of his teeth lightly grazing my
skin while the threat of someone walking down the hallway and turning the
corner made me clench tightly. His fingers gripped my hips and desire washed
over me.  His hands caused goosebumps to erupt everywhere he
touched.  My body hummed from the electric currant that flowed
between us. The anticipation I felt for Colton’s kiss was almost unbearable.
“What are you doing?” I repeated, wrapping my arms around his
neck.
Leaning in so that our lips were almost touching, Colton answered
sexily, “You.”
 
AUTHOR
BIO:
I am a married event planner, life coach and instructor.  Between my awesome friends and family and my
amazing husband, I am constantly surrounded by love.  My goal at all times is to love what I’m doing
and enjoy life.  I love shopping and
football with equal fervor.  I’m an amateur
movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for
fun). I love to read, but since I’ve been writing, I don’t read as much as I
used to. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid
picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most
mediums of creative, artistic expression. But music is probably my favorite.

Book Blitz: Physical Touch by Sierra Hill

 

 
 
 
SYNOPSIS:
Fight or flight had
never been a question for feisty Boston physical therapist Rylie Hemmons, until
she met the man whose touch made her reconsider everything she’d worked so hard
to create.
 
When Rylie takes on new
patient Mitch Camden after his ski-accident, she is overwhelmed by a physical
attraction she’s never before experienced.
 
Conflicted over her
desire for Mitch and maintaining her professional oath, she works to keep the
personal boundaries, just as Mitch is equally determined to close the
distance. 
At the risk of
jeopardizing her career and reputation, Rylie is forced to make a life-altering
decision that may have her running from what she needs most.

EXCERPT:
 
 
“Sports
car. I knew it! Trying to make up for a lack of something, Pretty Boy?”
“I’ve
never heard any complaints about my lack of
anything
.”
Hmm. Whatever, Stud Muffin.
Mitch
opened up the passenger side door and held the door so Rylie could place the
bag on the seat. She leaned in and carefully set the bag on the floor. Shifting
herself up right, she turned around and came face-to-face with Mitch, who now
was just inches of her. One step closer and he would have her pinned against
the doorframe.
Her
breath caught and a warm tingle shot up her spine. He was too close. Way too
close. Totally in her personal space. She willed him to move. Instinctively,
her hand rose to place it on his chest, presumably to push him away. His hand
shot out and grabbed her wrist, yanking her toward him.
Breathe.
“I’m
glad I ran into you, IQ,” he whispered into her ear, his hand dropping her
wrist and moving to her face to brush a loose strand of hair behind her ear. “I
appreciate your assistance and hope I can reciprocate in the very near future.”
Rylie’s
hand remained on his chest. She could feel his body heat and the beating rhythm
of his heart. She meant to push him away, to maneuver around him and place
herself a safe distance from him. But her hand somehow had a mind of its own
and stayed there, enjoying the texture of his soft sweater and the marbled feel
of his chest. In fact, the other hand joined in on its own volition. His lips
quirked up, apparently showing his approval.
She
had just opened her mouth to say something and without warning, his mouth was
upon hers in lightning-fast speed. He placed his hands on the sides of her face
and tilted her head, allowing him to gain access to her lips. He gently pried
her lips open, rubbing his tongue sensually along her bottom lip. Rylie’s mind
rebelled, but her mouth betrayed her, giving in to the suppleness of his
kissable lips. Her first instinct was to push him away and knee him in the
balls, but the feeling was so intense and pleasurable, she gave in to the
feeling that she was floating.

Stormy Surrender
Sometimes the life you planned isn’t the one you get to live. Sometimes the pain of the past overshadows the future. And sometimes to start over you have to go back to where it all began. That’s how it was for Joe Masters. That’s how he ended up back in New Hope. And that’s why he was in his thirties and had nothing to show for his life. He needed a complete overhaul, just like his father’s old house. Instead of a fast track, he had slowed down and was on a ten year plan. These days that was more his speed. And as much as he tried to fight the inevitable, he was learning to accept and surrender.

Martha had weathered her fair share of storms in Vermont, was accustomed to the cold, both the chill in the air and the cold shoulder in her marriage, but after the miscarriage she felt like she would never get warm again. So she did the research from the laptop while sitting in front of the fireplace. She knew what she needed when she Googled ‘hope,’ she just never imagined that it would bring her to New Hope, South Carolina. She never imagined that her husband would trick her into leaving and never follow. She never imagined that a southern storm with all its force and fury could be so destructive. But after the storm, the land is washed clean. It’s perfect for a fresh start, a clean slate, and a new love.

Always You
I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved. 

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact. 

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…

Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school? 

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem? 

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.
About the Author

Work Like You Don’t Need The Money
Holly Hayes is a realist, if nothing else. She’s going to be Maid of Honor at her best friend, Emma’s wedding in Summer Lake. Pete Hemming, self made millionaire, powerful CEO, all around good guy, is going to be the Best Man. If they’re going to be able to get through their official duties, there’s one thing they’ll need to deal with first. Sex!

He may be out of her league socially and financially, but one thing is clear. He wants her. She wants him. What’s the harm in one night of passion? It’s inevitable they’re going to end up naked together. So it’s best to get it out of the way early, right? So they can get on with organizing the wedding.

Pete Hemming is a man with a plan. He’s lived his life by the plan, built his business by it. The plan doesn’t allow for a woman in his life, only in his bed. Trouble is, once he gets Holly into his bed, he can’t get her out of his mind. But he can’t let her into his life, can he?

The Summer Lake series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills. They have kept in touch over the years and now, in their early thirties, their lives are drawing them back to Summer Lake and to each other.
About the Author 
Hi, I’m SJ. A coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.

I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)

~*~ABOUT THE AUTHOR~*~
I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I’ve been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses – swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn’t pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).
I am the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA series, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN, CHOSEN, HEARKEN, PROVEN (2014).I love all books, but really enjoy writing young adult, paranormal romances. I’ve loved to write for as long as I can remember. My first published work was my poem RED in second grade (you guessed it – it was a poem about the color red – life altering, I know) that won me 5 gold stars and a spot in my elementary school’s poetry book. That’s when my addiction to the written word officially began. I was the only kid in fifth grade that actually enjoyed diagramming sentences. Go ahead and laugh – its okay.
When I’m not writing I’m making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband.

Romance Beach Bundle 1
by Donna Fasano
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 20, 2014

 

 

Is there anything better than lounging on a sunny beach under a colorful umbrella, soaking up the sunshine and the salty sea breeze as you indulge in your favorite pastime—reading a romance novel? In the Romance Beach Bundle 1, USA Today Bestselling author Donna Fasano brings you three romantic books that are sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face.

Nanny And The Professor Professor Joshua Kingston thought he’d found the perfect nanny for his son. But once Cassie Simmons stepped into his life, she turned it upside down! His son no longer played by the rules – and Cassie kept making up new ones. He would fire her – if he didn’t find her so utterly enticing. Cassie had a huge secret to hide, and she couldn’t afford to lose her new job. But her handsome employer wasn’t making things easy. All those silly rules. How was an eight-year-old boy supposed to have any fun? The professor definitely needed a lesson in laughter – and love!

Taking Love in Stride Track coach Andrea O’Connor is fuming at the audacity of Ian Powers, the very attractive father of one of her students. He offers to buy school equipment only if Andrea agrees to train him for a half-marathon. Well, train him, she will. And not just in running. As a widower with a high-powered job, Ian needs some instruction in being a father to an active teenage daughter. Yet as this overbearing man opens up, Andrea finds herself learning lessons—in loving. Ian knows that Andrea, with her assertive attitude and her penchant for stilettos, is some woman! But her vulnerable heart is on the run, so he’ll have to prove that his love, unlike his running, has limitless endurance—and once he catches this swift beauty, he’ll never let her go.

Mountain Laurel So what if Laurel Morgan hadn’t had a date since the senior prom? If all it would take to convince her teenage sister to consider college was to go on a few dates and have some fun, it was a bet she could beat. And before she could change her mind, sexy forest ranger Michael Walker agreed to play the part of her ardent admirer! Laurel never expected Michael’s acting abilities to be quite so convincing. Whenever her sister was watching, Laurel found herself wrapped in a heady embrace with a passionate kiss on the way. Her captivating cohort promised a performance that would win her the wager, but when the curtain closed, would she lose the only man she would ever love?

Synopsis

 

I’m sick and tired of my boss, DeVon Ricci, screwing with me. He signed the guy I was seeing just so I couldn’t date him, and now he fired an employee who’d insulted me.
If he wasn’t expecting me to flirt with every top Hollywood executive to help him close deals, I might have thought he felt something for me.

The problem is, as angry as he makes me, I can’t stop thinking about him. There is only one way I know to get him out of my mind. I have to f**k him.

The CEO of Mirage Talent, DeVon Ricci needs to be in control, but ever since Krissy Jensen walked into his company, he’s found his control slipping. He knows what he needs to do to get it back again, but the more time he spends with her, the less he’s sure he’ll be able to follow through.

When two passionate, headstrong people finally crash together, they can’t help but ignite. The question is, will either of them be able to walk away unburned?

“I liked the way she felt in my arms and that she wanted me, but it wasn’t the way I liked it with other women.  It wasn’t about the power I had over them.  She made me feel like I was something special, and it had been a long time since a women had made me feel that way.”

While I am still having a hard time liking DeVon, I must admit that this man sounds as slick as an oil executive, and better looking than Adonis.  And fortunately, his icy black heart seems to be thawing, though he is still very much a cruel bastard.  I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to continue reading this series after I had finished Part 1, as I had found DeVon to be utterly contemptible… but hot damn!  I do believe I am coming around as I am now totally impatient for Part 3.  The sex scenes are sizzling hot and deliciously steamy now that our two main characters are falling for each other.  However, I know I am really not suited to read book series, I worry I am going to forget too many of the salient details by the time the next book comes along.  Luckily, this series is memorable as well as brief, so I could easily go back and reread them to refresh my memory.  But the wait in between releases – now that I am invested in the story – torturous!  M.S. Parker is a naughty tease!

Cover Reveal, Giveaway: Persuading Tomorrow by J. Laslie

Book: Persuading Tomorrow
Author: J Laslie
Genre: New Adult
Releasing September
When the unimaginable happens and Jordan loses her best friend on the night she had planned to tell him her feelings, it leaves her to wonder if she’s the guilty party, but her memories of that night are fuzzy. In an attempt to leave her past and the hateful stares of her peers behind, she moves across the country to live with her mother in Esterwilde, Pennsylvania. It’s a small close-knit town, but there no one should know about her past, or so she thought.
When Zyler runs into the new girl in town he can’t help but feel a connection, but he also knows her past harbors a horrible secret. He’s heard the rumors, but doesn’t believe them. Seeing Jordan in pain kills him and all he wants to do is take it away.
Jordan soon realizes that no matter what she does she’s not going to be able to outrun her past. Can Zyler show her that despite the hate and ignorance in the world that life is still worth living? Will she ever figure out the truth about the night that took away her best friend?
“You gotta stop saying things like that.”

“Why?” I see him push off the counter and step around to face me. He brings a hand up to run his thumb across my cheek and my breath hitches at the intimate contact. His touch still seems to shoot electricity through me. My skin is on high alert when he’s around and I can feel the pace of my heart pick up into a full gallop by the close proximity of him.

“Be.. because I said so?” It shouldn’t have come out as a question and it lacked the conviction that I was feeling inside.

“I don’t think you mean that. I think you like it when I say nice things about you. You just don’t know how to handle them. Jordan, you are a beautiful person no matter what people may have said to you in the past. I know you hide behind that shy exterior, but you need to push that aside and not let people put you down. You have the most amazing wavy, red hair. I didn’t even know it came in that shade naturally. Your eyes are the most brilliant green I’ve ever seen.”
