Author: Heather McCollum

Genre: Historical Romance

About The Highlander’s Unexpected Proposal:

A lass begging to marry him might top the list of “oddest things to happen,” but Chief Adam Macquarie is desperate. And no matter how much he hates to do it, he’s not above lying to get what he wants. Starting with the fact that he just omitted the truth about the situation back at his home—where there are no women and only a handful of other people. Because he has a secret need for a wife himself, one she won’t be too happy about when she finds out.


Lark Montgomerie is thrilled the brawny chief agrees to save her from her drunken father’s machinations of wedding her off to the first fool that agrees. He’s easy on the eyes and no one can be worse than her current options. Now a new life awaits her, on an exciting Scottish isle no less, and nothing will dampen her spirits. That is, until she arrives in her new homeland and realizes more than a few things are amiss…

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I am not… I do not woo lasses like Beck. My whole focus has been on starting our clan over, building it up, so I never learned to be clever while talking to lasses.”

“You do not need to be clever,” she said, her mouth softening as she turned toward him. “Just say what you are thinking.”

The shadows and shards of firelight played over her high cheekbones and lovely chin. Lord, how he wanted to run his finger over that soft skin. Say what he was thinking? Can I throw up your skirts right here and kiss every inch of your lush body? Then carry you into that castle and make you scream my name as you burst with pleasure?

He opened his mouth and paused. “Uh… Are ye hungry?” Bloody hell.

“No,” she said with a shake of her head.

“Do ye need to use the privy?”

She shook her head again, her lips turning up slightly.

They stared at each other for another breath, and he curled his hand around her small one. It felt fragile in his large palm and yet he knew how strong Lark was. “Can I kiss ye?”

The world around him vanished into darkness as he waited for her answer. She gave a small nod, and he inhaled. Stepping into her, his lips bent toward her, and he waited to see if she would pull away. Lark kept her head tipped up to him, her eyes open, and he pressed a gentle kiss on her soft mouth.

The heat of her body soaked into him. He wasn’t sure if he’d pulled her into him or she’d melted forward, but his arms were around her so that he could feel the softness of her curves pressed into him. Softness to mold against his hardness.

The feel of her, the delicious smell of her, mixed with the detailed memories of his dreams, erupted a firestorm within him. He stroked down her back. She trembled slightly, and Adam caught her face with one hand, guiding her against him to deepen the kiss. She was letting him touch her! Slow. Keep it slow. Do not ruck up her skirts and rut with her against the chapel wall.

His rational thoughts faded quickly to fragmented whispers. He’d been so close to her, yet she’d been untouchable, for days and uncomfortable nights. But now… now he would touch her. “Lark,” he managed to say against her lips as she spread a trail of fire with her fingers down his chest to the hardness beneath his kilt. Through the wool wrapping, she stroked over him. He inhaled swiftly, her touch robbing him of his mind.

Pent up raw want funneled through Adam as he held her to him. She fit him perfectly, and the fact that she hadn’t pulled away at the feel of him released his worry over bedding a virgin. Lark was brave and soft with a good dose of wild.

Cover Reveal – WEDDING DATE by Monica Murphy

 

Monica Murphy has revealed the cover for Wedding Date!

Releasing: December 1, 2020

Cover Designer: Hang Le

 

Kelsey Phillips is over the dating scene.


All that time and energy perfecting your profile and taking just the right picture and articulating exactly what you’re looking for, only to get the same sleazy propositions? No thanks. She’s doing just fine on her own, so there’s no point in a fruitless hunt for “the one” that doesn’t exist.


Besides, she already has the perfect man in her life. Theo is the type of friend who’s always there for a laugh, a hug, or a drink– and no propositions.



So when he somehow manages to agree to be a groomsman in his ex-fiance’s wedding to his cousin, the least Kelsey can do is be his date.



But why stop at doing the least?



Pretending to be in a relationship is easy. They already know everything about each other. And it sure isn’t hard to fake attraction to a guy as gorgeous as Theo. Soon enough, the only pretense left is that they haven’t fallen for each other for real… and the very small matter of the secret Kelsey’s been keeping. Can a fake relationship survive this real revelation?

Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three dogs.

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at belladicorte@gmail.com if you’d like to reach out.

Bella Di Corte’s Man of Honor is the beginning of her Royal Organized Crime Romance saga. After reading Machiavellian and Marauder, I couldn’t wait for anything Bella Di Corte was going to put out to read.

I enjoyed this intro to Brando Fausti and Scarlett Rose Poesy. BDC sets up her series saga with this prologue and has me ready to read and love more of Brando and Scarlett. I’m very much looking forward to seeing where their love story goes next and getting more of the Fausti family.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Would ye like assistance?” he asked without looking up.

“Go away,” she said, her words in a forceful whisper.

Adam pushed away from the tree. He would not press upon a reluctant lass, even one from a family that only produced females. His brother, Beck, would find a bride elsewhere.

“Blast,” the woman whispered. Perhaps she was too stubborn to ask for help. Stubborn determination was something Adam knew well. It was what kept people alive, kept them moving forward when all seemed lost.

The leaves shook as the woman moved in the boughs of the tree. Adam walked under the branch where bare toes reached down, flexing and pointing, as she felt around blindly. Her toes were tiny appendages, the nails neat and without dirt. The lass’s skirts billowed out as she squatted. “God’s teeth,” she murmured.

Dodging the wildly circling kick, he reached up. “I will guide your foot to the branch,” he said. Her toes flexed. Glancing up, he saw a pale face with large blue eyes tipped down toward him. A thick braid hung over one shoulder, and her lips looked soft and lush. A sprinkling of freckles sat along her high cheekbones and the bridge of her nose.

She blinked at him, her mouth closing into a tight line. “I need no help.”

“Your cursing makes me think ye lie.” Her toes dangled in the air an inch above the branch that she could not see due to the petticoats. She gasped as he caught her foot, tugging until the ball of it touched the branch, her perfectly formed, little toes curling around to help her balance.

Holding tightly above her, she stretched while staring down at him. “Move back, and I can jump down,” she said, narrowing her eyes.

She had the longest eyelashes, and some red curls had escaped her braid to slide forward along her smooth cheeks. “A leap from that high could break your ankle.” He reached for her waist.

Shuffling sideways she said, “I do not need any man to—” Her denial cut off as she lost her balance, falling forward, her hands grasping at the weak twigs with leaves, making the tree shudder. Adam caught her, his hands wrapping around her cinched waist to pull her toward him.

Her skirts caught on the branch, lifting them high as she descended. “Bloody hell.” She slapped her petticoat off the fingerlike branches that seemed intent on exposing the secrets she kept beneath.

Her lush form slid down his, and he inhaled at the contact, as if the pressure of her plucked along every muscle in his body. She smelled of some type of flower and spice, making him suck in another breath as he held her form against him. She felt as soft as he was hard. For several heartbeats they stared at one another, her face mere inches from his. What does she taste like?

Her eyes grew wide, making him wonder for a moment if he’d spoken aloud. “Put me down,” she said, shoving against his chest.

Adam lowered her and stepped back as she righted the twisted, blue gown around her trim waist, her full breasts pushing against the confines of her laced bodice. He could see why the two suitors were not taking rejection easily. Adam nodded in the direction the two swains had hurried. “They went that way. Ye should roll around in mud or go about with your hair soaked and straggly to keep them away.”

Release Blitz – THE LAST RULE OF MAKE-UPS by Nina Crespo

Today we have the release day blitz for THE LAST RULE OF MAKE-UPS by Nina Crespo! Check out the sexy new romance and grab your copy today!

Title: THE LAST RULE OF MAKE-UPS

Author: Nina Crespo

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Last Rule of Makes-ups:

Cori Ross is thanking her lucky stars. Sure, her long-time boyfriend just dumped her, but that’s a good thing. In her rush to find Mr. Right, she realizes she almost settled for Mr. Just Okay. And that’s definitely not okay. So, tonight, she’s out with her friends at the Breakup Bash—a private party for women celebrating their break-ups—and she’s actually celebrating. Still, it was too close a call. So she makes a deal with herself—no guys for six months.

Unfortunately, just as she’s leaving the club, she runs into her old boyfriend, Grey Latham—the guy she’d always wanted to be Mr. Right. Great. What a time to swear off guys. Maybe she needs to change the deal—no relationships for six months. There’s no reason why she can’t have a fling, right? Because Grey still holds the title of the best sex she’s ever had.

There’s no way this could go wrong. Grey is on his way to international DJ fame—he’s only in town for a short time, and then he’ll be gone again. No harm in burning up the sheets while it lasts.

Too bad neither expected what happened next…

The First Rule of Hook-Ups

Rules of a Rebound

Exclusive Excerpt:

Grey backed her up against the rack on the left wall and gripped the edge of the shelf near the sides of her head. He leaned in, and his hard chest brushed against the sensitive tips of her breasts.

He pressed a kiss near her ear. “I’m not playing with you.”

Desire shallowed her breathing as she reached for the tucked edges of the towel. “No games here.”

The doorbell rang, and the front door lock disengaged.

Her hands froze, and Grey’s head snapped up.

The security system chimed with the opening of the door.

“Cori,” her mother called out. “It’s me.”

Panic blazed through Cori. In a matter of seconds, her mom would walk into the kitchen and see… She glanced down at Grey’s erection jutting out from the towel. Shit! Pushing past him, she whispered, “Stay here.”

“Wait—”

Cori rushed out, just closing the door behind her when Adina Ross came down the hallway.

“There you are.” Her petite mom, neat and comfortable looking in beige capri pants, a loose navy shirt, and matching flats, stuffed her keys in a navy shoulder bag as she walked into the kitchen. “Sorry for barging in and not waiting for you to answer the door, but I made the mistake of asking your favorite neighbor how she was doing.” Her mom’s light brown face was free of makeup. Soft creases formed at the corners of her eyes as she chuckled and gave Cori a brief hug. “That woman talked for ten minutes straight about her root canal. She was about to go into the neighborhood drama report before I finally got away from her.”

“But it’s Saturday. Don’t you have a standing hair appointment this afternoon?”

Her mom smoothed a hand over her ebony hair that was pulled back into a ponytail. “I’m on my way there, but I needed to talk to you first. What were you so busy doing that you couldn’t call me back?”

“I ran into a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. We were out late catching up.”

“And this morning?”

Images from earlier flashed in Cori’s mind of her and Grey on the couch…and of him standing in her pantry closet wearing nothing but a towel and a hard-on. Well, he probably didn’t have the hard-on anymore.

About the Author:

Loverboy by Sarina Bowen

The Company #2

Release Day: December 1, 2020

 

BLURB

Secrets, desires, and exquisite pie. It’s all in a day’s work at The Company.

Growing up, I was the rough guy from the wrong neighborhood who couldn’t catch a break. Posy was the pampered girl I tried to impress. But I managed to steal only a single kiss before I had to skip town.

Now I’m back, and the tables are turned. Posy runs a struggling pie shop. I’m the VP of a secretive billion-dollar security company.

Not that I can tell her.

There’s a murderer on the loose in New York, and he seems to spend a lot of time at Posy’s shop. I can’t let on that I’m here to bring him down before he can harm a hair on her pretty head.

Going undercover as Posy’s new barista wasn’t my idea. I don’t even drink coffee. But now I have to call her “boss,” and do everything the curvy perfectionist asks of me. I’d forgotten how much we infuriate each other, and that she somehow fills me with both irritation and desire in the same breath.

There’s nobody more skilled at stealth ops than me. I can bring this killer down. Right after I take a cold shower. And just as soon as I figure out how to make a skinny peppermint latte with milk poured in the shape of a kitten…

“Stop what you’re doing and read Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken RIGHT NOW! It’s action packed with plenty of secrets and full of smoldering romance! If you love mafia romance, you will LOVE this book!” – New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. –Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I’d be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn’t know it was me.

She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don’t sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out–I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I’ll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me–over her perfect life.

“I broke you,” I confessed.

“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.

Eli Bennett.

Quarterback at our biggest rival high school.

My brother’s worst enemy.

So why can’t I stop thinking about him?

For one, he’s totally gorgeous and boy, does he know it. He’s an arrogant trash talker who brings drama wherever he goes.

And for some reason, he’s set his sights on me.

The more I get to know him, the more I realize he’s actually kind of…sweet. Deep down, he’s broken. Hurting. He’s dealing with a lot, but he also puts on a major front so no one can tell. I want to be there for him. I want to be with him. But because everyone in my life hates Eli, we have to keep our relationship a secret.

The problem with secrets is they never stay secret for long…

Excerpt

“Your team is looking strong this season,” Eli says.

“That’s because we are strong.” It’s my turn to wear the cocky smile as I sit on a nearby

barstool. “Be prepared for us to kick your ass during our homecoming.”

He makes a dismissive noise. “Good luck with that. We’ve been working on taking your

team down for years. This is going to be the game where we finally make it happen.”

“You really believe that?” I raise a brow.

He rounds the kitchen island so he’s across from me, resting his elbows on the marble

countertop before he leans in. His face comes closer and closer to mine, until he’s right there.

Directly in front of me. “I believe in my team, just as strongly as you believe in yours.”

I realize our mouths are perfectly aligned. He’s definitely within kissing distance, and I

remember what it was like. Kissing Eli. Touching Eli. Feeling his hands on me. My breaths

become shorter and my heart thumps wildly. Maybe I should tell him to back off. Or maybe I

should back away myself. But I don’t move.

Neither does he.

“It’s weird having you here in my kitchen on a Friday night.” He reaches out, tugging

gently on the end of my ponytail. “Wearing your Badger gear.”

“Right.” I release a shuddery breath, hoping he doesn’t realize how much he’s affecting

me. “Like I told you earlier, I need to change.”

“You can change in my room,” he offers, raising his brows.

“I’m not going to your room tonight Eli,” I tell him sternly. I have to have some sort of

boundaries, or I won’t respect myself in the morning.

And neither will he.

“Want to go for a swim?” he asks, still not changing his position.

Still directly in my face.

“I didn’t bring a swimsuit,” I answer, my voice soft.

“That’s okay. We don’t need swimsuits.” His eyes are dancing, looking more than a little

pleased with himself.

“I’m not skinny dipping with you.”

“That’s a damn shame. I was hoping I could catch a glimpse of naked Ava.”

Ha. He wishes. “In your dreams.”

“You are so right,” he says with a sigh. “You don’t even know.”

I don’t want to know.

Well, I sort of do. Not that I’d tell him that.

“I can wear my sports bra and briefs,” I tell him, and when he frowns, I continue, “To

swim in.”

His frown disappears, replaced by a hopeful expression. “You’ll really swim with me?”

“Yeah. Sure. But you can’t get too handsy.” Now I lean in even closer, our mouths only

inches apart. “I’m not that kind of girl.”

He chuckles, and the sound is warm, wrapping all around me. “You give as good as you

get, don’t you?”

“Even better, if you’re lucky,” I say, breathing deeply as I slowly pull away from him. I

don’t even know where I’m coming up with this stuff. Swear he brings it out of me. “But I don’t

think you’re ever going to get lucky with me, Bennett.”

“You can’t challenge me like that. Game fucking on.” He holds his hand out for a bro

shake and I take it, ready for him to do some elaborate handshake ritual, but he tricks me at the

last minute.

Instead, he brings my hand to his mouth, his gaze never leaving mine, as he oh so slowly

kisses my knuckles. “I’m going to make you mine someday, Ava. Watch me.”

Oh God.

I am in so much trouble.

Monica Murphy’s latest, Addicted to Him is the third in her Callahans series. My first Monica Murphy read was Drew and Fable’s story and I was excited that she was writing stories for their children. I couldn’t wait to read more.

Addicted to Him is Ava Callahan’s story…at least the first part of her story. I wasn’t sure what to expect given the match up with Eli Bennett. Their story doesn’t disappoint. Ava, Eli, and all the drama and angst you could want. I’m on pins waiting for the conclusion and October can’t get here fast enough.
