Synopsis:

Brie Sanders’ entire life is on the brink of change. Her college graduation is just a few months away, she has no idea what to do with her life when the degree is in her hands, and is most likely going to be kicked out of her apartment when her best friend’s boyfriend moves in.

Enter One Nightstand King, Kellan Kenningston, who also happens to be a real life prince as well as a duke.

From first blinding white smile, Kellan becomes a royal pain in the butt who keeps her laughing and Brie becomes the breath of fresh air he desperately needs.

Unfortunately, for both of them, this isn’t a fairy tale with an immediate happily ever after. The media is a monster that can barely be tamed. Balls are not beautiful and bright. And more often than not, true evil is found in surprising forms.

Rayne Kilpatrick has everything. A job she’s dreamed of since she was a little girl. The perfect house. And a man she loves and is about to marry… Until he never returns from a humanitarian mission.

Gone. Disappeared. Vanished.

When footage of his gruesome murder by a Muslim extremist group is shown across the country and around the globe, she wants the person responsible for the disappearance of the man she loves to pay. She wants him to lose the one person who means the world to him, too, and she won’t stop until he does.

Alexander Burnham has everything… Finally. A job he enjoys where he can actually make a difference in the world. The perfect woman who he’s loved his entire life. And the most beautiful daughter a father could ask for…Until he walks into her bedroom one morning to find it empty.

Gone. Disappeared. Vanished.

It’s a race against the clock for Alexander to put the pieces together and find out who has taken his daughter and what they want from him. As information comes to light, he is forced to bury the guilt he feels after losing his fellow team member and focus instead on finding and saving his daughter… Before it’s too late.

StarkSteptemberebook

Synopsis

Sometimes it only takes a moment for your whole world to change. When Captain Kira Riley begins working on base at Fort Carson, she thinks she will be paying back her debt and escape her past. However just as she tries to focus on the mission at hand her path violently collides with the one man who could unearth every wall she has ever built.

Kira had struggled for years to make it to this moment. Finally a physician! But for those from meager backgrounds dreams come at a price. In order to pay for school she would have to serve in the military for 4 years. Just being on base brings back a lifetime of painful memories. Kira has to focus, pull up her big girl panties and make this work. One problem, she never anticipated meeting Owen Stark, a Special Forces sergeant who lives by a strict code. Though Kira tries to avoid any thoughts of this rugged stranger, fate has other plans. After a steamy and awkward physical exam Kira is left breathless and shaken. She has no intention of ever putting herself in a vulnerable situation again yet this soldier stirs feelings she didn’t know she had. Beyond fraternization, Kira will have to overcome; a slew of crazy exes, the grips of a BDSM subculture, and jail to find out who Owen Stark really is.

Stark is intrigued from their first encounter but his world is set. After a decade of service to avenge past tragedy, his team was all he needed, until he met her. Her determination, wit and gentle charm captivate him. Now he must choose between the existence he has built and a chance to really live again. Separated by their ranks she is the one woman he can never have. He knows being caught will end both of their careers. Aside from that if he gets too close she will learn about his life before the military or worse how he has spent his free time for the last decade. He knows he should just walk away, but one look in those innocent eyes, and the world stops spinning. Some risks are worth taking even if you lose everything.

AboutTheAuthor

CD Bradley PIC

I’m just a girl who likes to daydream. Sometimes I write them down to share. Even as a little girl teachers would tell my parents I live in a world of my own. The literary world was my safe haven. Then we grow up. I practiced medicine in the ER and urgent care for the last 15 years. I started writing again while still working in the ER but put it aside when we opened our own clinic. Until last year my husband and I owned our own practice, we had two children and lived a somewhat normal life. Then in the span of a year we sold our practice, bought a 96 acre farm in the hills of West Virginia and adopted 3 of our patients ( ages 2,3,4) bringing our kid count up to five. It has been a crazy year full of ups and downs and learning to laugh at ourselves. Being mostly brought up in the city, managing a working farm with real farm creatures and ever lurking bears has been an adventure. Not to mention adjusting to being a mom of FIVE. But when things are rough I just laugh and tell stories. Because at the end of the day sometime laughter and love is all you have. Somewhere in the midst of kids and chickens, I managed to finish my first novel and dive deeply into the second. Writing at night or early in the morning while all the littles are asleep lets me escape into another world. I hope that you will enjoy the journey of the story as much as I have writing it. Pursue your dreams as if limits to your abilities do not exist.

Now Available! “Billionaire Undaunted” By: J.S. Scott

 

Billionaire Undaunted – Book Nine,The Billionaire’s Obsession Series
Synopsis
My name is Ellie Winters, and I’m one of those unfortunate women you
hear about on the news—but you never think my fate will ever happen to
you. Not that I blame you for believing that. Honestly, I thought the
same thing, until I became a statistic, a missing person who was assumed
dead. Wrong place, wrong time.

Except…I’m not dead. Not yet. I was kidnapped, shackled, beaten,
and deprived of the basic necessities, and pretty much left to find a
slow, painful demise. I’m hanging on, but just barely. I’m not even
sure what I’m waiting for since there’s no hope for me, nobody waiting
for me. I had finally given up, resigned myself to my inevitable
death…when the one man who could make me want to live again finds me
more dead than alive. After so many months in captivity, I’m lost,
hopelessly damaged. Is it even possible for me to come out of the
darkness and into the light again?

Zane Colter challenges me to live again, laugh again, live my life
again. But I’m not sure if I’ll ever be the same woman I was before I
was held captive by a madman. Yet, he doesn’t give up, and I couldn’t
ignore the white-hot passion that sizzled between the two of us.

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I’ve always needed.

Tender–but stubborn.

Logical–but understanding.

Sweet–but hot, demanding and possessive.

As we fall into each other, both hungry for a passion we’ve never
known, I wonder if I can be what Zane needs when I’m struggling to find
myself again.

And when I’m finally healed, I’ll have a choice to make: Do I try
to hang onto him forever, or will letting go be my only option?…Disclaimer: This book is not suitable for children and young teens. 18+ only.

BLURB:

From USA Today bestselling author Terri Anne Browning.

With one promise her life was changed…

Saying goodbye to my mother also meant saying goodbye to my life in Virginia. After reluctantly making a promise to my mom, I was California bound with the father who I haven’t seen since I was four years old. I was miserable living under the same roof as my step-monster and the two step-bitches from hell. My only saving grace? Lucy Thornton, daughter to Demon’s Wings’ drummer, Jesse Thornton. Without her friendship—and her odd rocker family taking me in as one of their own—I was sure I would have lost my mind after the first week.

A blast from her past…

I never thought I would see Jace St. Charles again. Honestly, after the way he’d broken my heart, I would have been just fine without having to see his face for the rest of my life. With Lucy’s close friendship with Harris Cutter, owner of the hottest new club in SoCal and Jace’s new boss, I was forced to see that damn face often. Forced to see the way every girl seemed to trip over themselves to get close to him.

A second chance?

Being tossed into one situation after another with Jace made it hard to fight the fact that I wasn’t as immune to him as I wanted to be. But, damn it, I was only human and he was hell bent on winning me back.

Rocking Kin is the third book in The Lucy & Harris Novella Series.

BadBoysBoxsetMed

ILuvReading.comReviews

This is one incredible boxed set. I was pleasantly surprised by it’s contents. I was absolutely unable to put it down from the moment I picked up my e-reader.

This collection of authors have come together to create a magnificent work of art that is just to good to miss. The series consists of the following 16 books:
Alice Ward – Unraveling the Billionaire Complete Series (5 books)
Helen Grey – My Heart’s Desire Complete Series (5 books)
Alice Ward and Jessica Blake – The Billionaire Prisoner Complete Series (5 books)
Helen Grey – Burning Secrets (1 book)

Unraveling the Billionaire was a riveting series that will have you falling in love with the characters from the moment your eyes touch the page. Lauren and Asher were absolutely incredible. The storyline was impeccable and definetly sucks you in right from the beginning.

My Heart’s Desire is one of those series that is so full of mystery and intrigue that it keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading it. I was glued to my e-reader the entire time. I could not put this down at all! You feel every range of emotion in this one and Hawk’s level of protectiveness for Tracy is so endearing that it draws you in and makes you feel even closer to the characters.

The Billionaire Prisoner…what can I say about this series other than it left me breathless. Absolutely breathless. The passion was sinfully delicious, the chemistry between the two main characters was off the charts, the emotion will drive you to tears. This has to be hands down my favorite series out of all of them, it not only draws you in and keeps you with an incredible storyline but makes you feel like you are part of the story and there with them the entire time.

Burning Secrets was a heartbreaking tale about a woman who has tragically lost her husband and is taken into the Witness Protection Program and meets a US Marshall who she feels safe with. This book is all about the feels. You definitely get some emotion with this one and feel Maddie’s pain with her tragic loss.

This is one incredible series of books that you do not want to miss out on.

Blog Tour “Unlawful Attraction Box Set” By: M.S. Parker

Unlawful Attraction BT Banner

UnlawfullAttraction_BoxSet

ILuvReading.comReviews

M.S. Parker has done it again. Unlawful Attraction is one incredible series!

Unlawful Attraction Vol.1: This was a blast from the past! M.S. Parker made my day with this one! It was absolutely incredible to have the old gang back together again.

I absolutely loved reading Dena’s story and being brought back to the world of Club Prive seeing all of the characters that we connected with originally. This series is all about Dena and her taking control of her career getting her life in control. I’m loving the fact that Dena is a switch with a Dom and a Sub. This book is full of emotion and drama that definitely will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time your reading it.

Arik…what can I say about his character other than he is one really hot incredibly amazing alpha male. Sex on a stick… Yes please!

Unlawful Attraction Vol. 2: Wow. This is shaping up to be yet another amazing series by M.S. Parker.

At the end of Vol. 1 Dena was stunned left emotional leaving Club Prive when she saw Arik entering a room with another sub. Dena is thrown so many challenges with her job working with the ADA. On top of that she can’t seem to keep her mind off of Arik no matter what she does. Arik is one of those characters we can’t seem to get enough of. Of course he is your Dom that’s a hot sexy alpha male yet, he is also quite endearing. There is something about him that draws you in.

This volume is full of mystery, intrigue, drama, action, suspense, and non-stop roller coaster ride of emotions.

Unlawful Attraction Vol. 3: M.S. Parker definitely doesn’t disappoint. I mean this is one of those series that really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Dena is really in for it in this volume when she finds out that her and Arik are on the opposite sides of the court room. The only problem the chemistry between the two of them is so magnetic it’s practically explosive. They have this pull toward one another that makes it almost impossible to stay away from each other.

This volume has some major twists and turns that are thrown our way, by the end you will be biting your nails trying to figure out where this is going. I will say M.S. Parker does a fabulous job of creating a villain out of the ADA. You will HATE her. She is an awful character!

This is one incredible series.

Unlawful Attraction Vol. 4: M.S. Parker is like a master puppeteer pulling your strings keeping you glued to your e-reader from the moment you start reading. This series continues to get better as it progresses.

Dena finally gets what she always wanted second chair. You would think everything goes perfectly and she is finally cut a break right? Yeah, not so much. Dena is pretty much put through the ringer yet again. This series continues to throw challenge after challenge her way and we see her try and over come each one time and time again. The chemistry between Arik and Dena is so magnetic that you can practically feel the pull they have through the pages as you read.

This series is so fantastic you will not be able to put it down.

Unlawful Attraction Vol. 5: M.S. Parker has done it again. This was one incredible finale to the Unlawful Attraction series.

Dena and Arik find themselves in a tough situation, and need to make some difficult decisions very quickly. This volume is full of action, drama, suspense and some amazingly hot and sexy scenes that will have you fanning yourself long after you’ve turned the page.

This was a fantastic ending to an amazing series. Your emotions will run high as you read it so be prepared to be put through the gauntlet as you read! You will have the privilege of seeing Carrie, Kristi and the rest of the gang in this book as well. This truly was a great ending to another fabulous series by M.S. Parker.

I can’t wait to see what she has worked up for us next!

Synopsis

I’m not a selfish person. I mean, I’m thrilled that my friends are doing so well with their new jobs and their love lives. I just thought I’d be joining them, at least in the job department, now that I’m working for the DA. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going like I planned.

Twenty-six year-old Dena Monroe is happy that her friends, Carrie and Krissy, have found love, but she’s starting to wonder if that’ll ever happen for her. Being a strong, willful woman, she has yet to find a man who can give her what she really needs.

Between work and romance, can Dena find what she’s looking for?

Don’t miss M.S. Parker’s new steamy series that takes us back to Club Privé.

Synopsis

The second in the fascinating series about the lives of the beautiful Beth Cunningham, her family and friends.

Britain moves ever closer to the 1745 rebellion and the impending attempt to restore the Stuarts to the British throne. With no other options available to her, Beth marries the effete and tedious social butterfly Sir Anthony Peters.

She resigns herself to a future of formal parties and dismal social gatherings, whilst accompanying a husband who is both tiresome and physically repellent to her, but consoles herself with the thought that if she is not to know love, then at least she will have a secure and comfortable life. It may be uneventful, but she will be free of her brother.

The ink on the marriage contract is hardly dry, however, when Beth makes a shocking discovery, one that turns her world upside down and throws her whole future into doubt once more.

Almost immediately she must make a decision. Will she opt for the safe but dreary life her husband wishes her to lead, or will she fight for a life of passion, adventure and excitement, knowing that in doing so, she risks not only her own life, but the lives of those she loves?

Join the rebellion of one woman and her fight for freedom in…

Excerpt

When Beth descended on the evening of her first ball Sir Anthony was waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs, resplendent in sapphire-blue satin, his coat and waistcoat heavily embroidered with silver. She was already in a bad humour; her stays were too tight, her skirt was so wide as to be a danger to anyone who came within four feet of her, and her shoes were hurting her. She had not yet put on her social face, and scowled blackly at him as she reached the hall.
“My dear Miss Cunningham, how absolutely exquisite you look!” he twittered, holding his arm out to her and smiling sweetly. “I thought you might like to enter the room on the arm of someone with whom you are already acquainted, but if you think I am being too bold, please, do tell me.”
She put her hand on his arm and leaned on it while she struggled to bend down and take off her shoe, which had something sharp in it.
“Oh, this is ridiculous!” she said after a few moments of futile battling against the restrictions of her clothing. “How can it be sensible to wear clothing which render it impossible to take off one’s own shoe!”
“Allow me, my dear,” he said, kneeling in front of her and managing to take off the offending item of footwear without touching her at all. He shook it, and a small stone fell out. “There!” he said, replacing the shoe onto her outstretched foot. He stood up and offered her his arm again. “Now I would suggest, dear lady, that you also take the sharpness out of your face and replace it with a smile, however painful that may be. Although you will no doubt be besieged by young men eager to make your acquaintance, regardless of your facial expression. Money always wears a smile.”
She looked up at him.
“Does everybody know about my dowry then?” she asked.
“Of course, my dear. What do you think your cousin and your brother have been doing for the last days? Now, let us go in. I am so delighted that you chose to wear blue, and a shade which complements my own outfit so well! We will be the talk of the room.”
“Why?”
“Well, as we are already acquainted, people will assume we have dressed in the same colour deliberately, as a way of stating that we are…sympathetic to one another, shall we say?” he beamed down at her, displaying a set of perfect white teeth.
She looked at him with horror, and his smile faded slightly.
“If you wish, you can announce that it is mere coincidence, but you may prefer to use the assumption to your advantage.”
“What possible advantage could there be to me if people think we are sympathetic, as you put it, to one another?” she asked tactlessly.
“Well, when you find the constant attention and compliments a little overpowering, just signal to me, and I shall rescue you immediately. I promise not to say anything complimentary to you at all, and to pay you very little attention,” he suggested, undismayed by her obvious abhorrence of him.
She smiled, in spite of her apprehension.
“Ah, that is better. You look so beautiful when you smile…but I have promised. No more compliments. You will have a surfeit soon enough.”
“You are exaggerating, Sir Anthony,” Beth said, determined that once she was in the room she would not go anywhere near him for the rest of the evening.
“We will see,” came the reply.

AboutTheAuthor

Julia has been a voracious reader since childhood, using books to escape the miseries of a turbulent adolescence. After leaving university with a degree in English Language and Literature, she spent her twenties trying to be a sensible and responsible person, even going so far as to work for the Civil Service. The book escape came in very useful there too.

And then she gave up trying to conform and resolved to spend the rest of her life living as she wanted to, not as others would like her to. She has since had a variety of jobs, including telesales, teaching and gilding and is currently a transcriber, copy editor and proofreader. In her spare time she is still a voracious reader, and enjoys keeping fit and travelling the world. Life hasn’t always been good, but it has rarely been boring. She lives in rural Wales with her cat Constantine, and her wonderful partner sensibly lives four miles away in the next village.

Now she has decided that rather than just escape into other people’s books, she would actually quite like to create some of her own, in the hopes that people will enjoy reading them as much as she does writing them.

NEW PROGRESS cover only (3)

Synopsis

Jesse

I admit, I didn’t think much of Charlie at first. She was rounder than the girls who usually caught my eye. Not my type. But when I saw her sitting in that booth alone, for the first time something in my mind or my instincts or my heart told me to join her.

She defied me.

She challenged me.

She gave me hope.

Before I knew it, moving forward was my only option.

Charlie

I couldn’t tell you when it happened, but it had to have been a gradual change; I never moved too quickly.

If someone would have told me earlier that year what I was going to go through, I wouldn’t have believed them.

Jesse was so different from anyone I’d met before. And everyone I’ve met since. He sucked all the life out of me, in the best—and worst—ways.
