Love of a Rockstar by Nicole Simone

Marlene Parker thought she met her soul mate at eighteen but
when he left her pregnant and alone to pursue a life of rock n roll, she vowed
to never love again. Now four years later, she is being offered the dream of a
lifetime. Moving to France with her daughter to start anew. There is only one
problem. Marlene’s formative ex is back in town, and his pull is strong as
Luke Anderson has everything a man could want. Fame, fortune
and enough beautiful women to last him a lifetime. That is until a young
runaway shows him what is truly important. Family. A word in which plagues Luke
with regret. As a scared twenty two year old he ran away from the love of his
life and their unborn child. Now ready to reverse his biggest regret with only
three days to do it, Luke’s fate hangs in the balance. The question is, will he
be able to convince Marlene their love story deserves a second chance?


Luke worked his fingers into my hair and tilted my head
back. He placed small kisses down along my neck to the hollow of my throat. I
closed my eyes, savoring the feel of his mouth on my skin.
“You smell like cinnamon.” He gently nipped my shoulder.
“And you taste like vanilla. You are a God damn walking dessert.”
A small laugh turned into a moan as his thumb brushed my
nipple. Heat pooled in my lower stomach. I tugged at his shirt, desperate to
get it off him. There were too many clothes separating us.
Luke stilled my hand. “No, wait.”
I glanced up at him. Last I remembered, you didn’t wear
clothes during sex. “No?”
My head grew dizzy with the smell of pure male as his lips
grazed my ear. “I want to take things slow.” He unbuttoned my jeans and dragged
down the zipper. When he caught sight of the bright pink hearts on my thong, a
slow grin spread across his face. “There’s nothing sexier than a woman in
Capturing my mouth with his, he backed me up against the
wall. Every nerve ending in my body screamed for release. I titled my hips into
his hardness, eliciting a groan from both our lips.
“Luke, please,” I begged. “I need you inside me.”

Nicole Simone works in digital media by day and
at night, pen’s character driven romance novels that will make your mama blush.
She lives in Los Angeles, C.A with her fat bulldog named Humphrey. Love of a
Rockstar is her debut novel.

Changing Forever by Lisa DeJong


Title: Changing Forever (Rain 2, can be read as a stand alone)
Author: Lisa De Jong
Age Group: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Mae I Design


I’ve always let my past dictate my future, letting it paint a picture of exactly what I don’t want to be. Where I don’t want to end up.
Drake Chambers is as arrogant as I am stubborn. A college quarterback, a national star. I thought he was just another one of those guys … the type every girl should stay away from, but he’s carrying more than the weight of the football team on his shoulders.
He unravels the feelings and beliefs I’ve held onto for so long.
I thought we had it all figured out. Two people who’d finally found their happily ever after, but the past always has a way of sneaking into the present.
With one decision, everything changes … forever.

The I <3 My…Trilogy by Sabrina Lacey

The I Love My… Trilogy is the box
set of the entire “I Love My…” romance series. It’s jam-packed with “I Love My
Healed Heart” “I Love My Side of The Story” and “I Love My Fire” —three whole
novels, just shy of 200,000 words! In the intertwining erotic romance stories
of three best friends (Fashion Magazine Assistant Editor Jessica Harper,
Casting Director Amber Monroe, and Passionate Painter Nicole Henry) we fall in
love with their friendships, their quirks, and most of all, their hot as hell
men! Jessica’s been cheated on, Amber’s in a stale relationship, Nicole’s been
single for three years, and against the electric backdrop of New York City,
they battle their way to true love with the help of each other and a loyalty
you will love.
women acted this way across the globe, men would only be able to cheat with
each other because the sisterhood would be so strong.” – Amazon Review
I never thought I’d be the type of girl
to answer a sex ad. They were gross, laughed at, ridiculously disturbing even.
But then there are those posts tonight that cause my mind to question the
masses, the ones that beckon me, like: “Use me like I’m him” and “I’m free of
judgment – and in New York for only one night.” The latter one really catches
my attention.
Why am I looking? Because I am at the
height of my sexual prime and even though my heart hurts from the loser
boyfriend that just under two months ago ended our relationship without my
consent, I want it. Sex. I want a man’s body on top of mine.  I want the pressure of his chest against me –
the weight of him, the smell of him, on top of me. Behind me. Underneath me.
Next. To. Me. 
I want it.  So I answered one.
Will I tell anyone I answered the
ad?  Hell, no. 
While I’m sitting on my couch with my
glass of Pinot Grigio, watching an episode of So You Think You Can Dance, I hear it…the unmistakable sound of an
email alert on my phone. It could be more spam from my credit cards. It could
be a notice that someone liked my post on Facebook (I really need to turn those
alerts off), or it could be my ticket out of this boredom and anger. I consider
waiting for the commercial break to check it… Yeah, right. I reach for the
The email reads, “I loved what you had
to say. You’re really funny. And if those pics you sent are real, I’d love to
meet you. Where are you now?”
My heart starts
to race.
Sabrina Lacey used to shoot photography and for
a while, fashion. She was like Diego, the photographer in I Love My Healed Heart who worked the tents at Fashion Week. It
gave Sabrina all the insight she needed to create a fantastical tale about the
glamorous lives those people don’t really live. 😉 Now she lives in Los
Angeles, CA. with her dog Pippin. He
wouldn’t comment for this bio. He’s an enigma, that one. A tiny, fluffy, white
Maltese, enigma who captured her heart and ran with it. She however would like
to say that she loves you for coming
along for the ride.  Cheers and Happy

Book Six of Wicked Play

Pro hockey player Holden Hauke has kept his sexual needs buried for years. After a near miss over a picture of him bound to a spanking bench resulted in a mid-season trade, he’s kept his image clean. But with the season over, he’s ready to surrender control. And he’s found just the woman to help him—if only he can convince her to give him a chance.

Bending men to her will is nothing new for Vanessa Delcour, aka Mistress V—she’s a full-time rep for pro athletes, a part-time owner of exclusive sex club The Den, and an experienced Domme. But when Holden Hauke comes looking for a discreet partner, Vanessa’s concerned about his motives. Touching his training-toned body during a scene wouldn’t exactly be a hardship, but taking him on crosses barriers between work and play that she’s had in place for years.

From their first intense encounter in Mistress V’s playroom, Hauke knows he can’t let this chance slip away; he’s found the woman he’s always needed. Submissive or not, he’s willing to push her every limit to prove how good they can be together.

Stripped From You by Marissa Carmel

You know how it ends, now see how it all began… 
“It doesn’t matter how many women touch this body, only one woman has ever touched this soul.”
Ryan Pierce doesn’t come from much, doesn’t ask for much, and doesn’t expect much. And he’s come to accept that, until, Alana Remington. Alana is the girl who struck the match that lit his world on fire. She’s the girl who opened his eyes to more. Who made him believe that just because you have nothing, doesn’t mean you are nothing. And he loves her fiercely for it. But, just because you come together, doesn’t mean you stay together. One fateful decision rips Ryan and Alana apart and neither of them are ever the same again. 
For five years he’s regretted that decision, but the deep seeded anger, shame and resentment has kept him from reaching out. And over those five years, a series of moments have spun Ryan’s world in a direction he never saw coming. A world ruled by endless nights, infinite women and the name Jack the Stripper. A world, unbeknownst to him, that may just let two severed hearts collide. 
(Stripped From You is a Prequel to Strip Me Bare)
Note- Stripped From You can be read as a stand-alone novel, but the author
suggests reading Strip Me Bare first. 
“Do you trust me?”
“Of course not, I just met you.”
“Then how about giving me the benefit of the doubt?”
She raises an eyebrow at me, and before I give her a chance to
respond I slam the shot then pull her face to mine. And as my mouth covers
hers, heat rapidly spreads through my body. 
She’s momentarily stunned. Her body
is rigid against me, but then she relaxes, parts her lips and lets the tart
liquid slide into her mouth.
can’t believe I just did that.
can’t believe she just let me.
After she swallows, she lets her lips linger, sucking up the taste of
the sweet shot, causing my nervous system to shift into hyper-drive. We break
apart slowly, but I refuse to let go of the nape of her neck. She just stares
up at me with these enthralling eyes I know I’ll never be able to resist.
“Do you always break the rules?” she asks.
“No, not usually, but you seem to make me want to do crazy things.”
“Was that crazy?”
“Let’s do it again and find out.”
I lick my lower lip, tasting the sweet remnants of her lip gloss
before I drop another shot. I pause for just a beat before lean down and press
my mouth back to hers and let the alcohol flow between us. I flick my tongue
against her teeth right before I pull away. I shouldn’t like this so much, but
I do. I like the way she looks, the way she feels, they way she smells. 
something about her, something ventilating; like she oxygenates the atmosphere.
I catch the cool beats to a song I recognize pumping though the air.
“Do you want to dance?” I ask her.
“You can dance?”
“There’s only one thing I can do better.” I smirk.
Alana cocks her eye brow suggestively.
“Draw.” I fire back. “The only thing I can do better is draw. Dirty
girl.” I tease as I grab her hand and lead her out to the dance floor knowing
Mac will look after our drinks.
Once we find a comfortable spot, I start to move to the smooth
rhythm, leaving a little room between us so it doesn’t feel like I’m forcing
myself on her. Drake sings coolly about hot love and affection as we move in
sync to the beat, our bodies brushing and grazing as the music plays on, then
finally coming together in a comfortable unison. I wrap one hand around her
waist as I roll my hips into hers, pressing our bodies as close as they can possibly
get. Alana runs her hands up my chest and hooks her arms lightly around my neck
keeping tempo with the music. She moves lithely against me, inducing my heart,
thoughts, and pulse to race. 
Fuck, I’m
drowning in want for this girl.
I slide my hands up under her shirt and
caress the smooth, soft skin of her lower back as she nuzzles her face into my
neck, her warm breath skating across my collarbone, making me instantly hard.
She lifts her head and meets my stare, which I know is filled with
lust and unrepentantly wanton. She bites her lower lip, our bodies still jiving
to the slow seductive music. In a brazen move, I slip my hand up the back of
her bare thigh and cup her ass cheek under the hem of her short shorts. She
gasps as I work my fingers against her, massaging the fleshy part of her
bottom. I’m absolutely aching being this close to her, touching her, stroking
her, grinding against her.
“Are you sure drawing is the only thing you can do better?” she pants
in my ear.

“I may have had more lovers than you, and I may take my
clothes off for countless women, but you are the only one who can strip me
Do you ever stop loving someone just because
they’re gone? Five years ago Ryan Pierce disappeared from Alana Remington’s
life without leaving so much as a post-it note behind. He was the one she gave
her heart to, her soul to, and her virginity to.  So imagine her surprise when she finds him
dancing at one of NYC’s hottest male revues as Jack the Stripper.
Ryan never stopped loving Alana, and now that she
serendipitously dropped back into his life, he’s vowed never to lose her
again.  But being together has its costs,
and challenges Alana isn’t sure she can handle.
She finally has Ryan back; but how in the world is
she supposed to share the love of her life with half of the women in New York
We stop in front of some hanging crystals. They
clink as Ryan pushes them aside, “after you.”
I walk under an orange spotlight, into a small space with a white
leather couch deep enough to lie on and walls a warm golden yellow.  
Ryan steps in behind me and presses his body flush
against mine. My mind races. 
Is he really going to do this? 
Am I really going to let him?
Can I even handle this? Five minutes ago he was
with another woman. Quite possibly in this same room doing God only knows
“Why do you do this Ryan?” I expel. I know he
explained it in words, but I need to experience it to truly understand. 
He ambles around me so close; the only thing
separating us is a whisper of air. 
“I told you, the money,” he says as he unbuttons
his shirt.
“You said women too,” I watch him cautiously, my
gaze jumping between his eyes and his chest.
“That was before you walked back into my life.
You’re the only woman I want to touch now. The others, like you saw before,
it’s just an act. A business transaction. It’s what I have to do to get what I
“Doesn’t it make them feel used?” I flick my eyes
up at him.
“It mustn’t. They always come back.”  
“You like it. I saw your face. That wasn’t an
Ryan stands right in front of me, his shirt
unbuttoned and dangling open. “I won’t lie to you Alana, I’ll never lie to
you,” his tone is hard, but seductive. “I do like the attention. But it’s not
real. It’s my job to sell attractiveness and fantasy, and I do it well. But
that’s all it is, fantasy and I know it. When I’m with you, that’s my real.”
My breath catches when he says the word real. I
can’t help but find the irony in his words; I’m exactly to him what he is to
me. Two people one and the same, both living a double life to get what they
want; a future and each other. 
And that is what I want. A future, with Ryan.  
I go to put my hands on his chest, but he steps
away shaking his head no. “In this room, it’s all about you,” he walks around,
stopping right behind me. “You have to tell me what you want Alana,” he
whispers in my ear and I almost go limp, the sound of his voice is erotic as
I swallow hard, but can’t utter a single word,
because truth be told, I have no freakin’ idea what I want. At least, not in
this scenario. 
Ryan starts to rub my shoulders. I think he can
feel my hesitation. 
“Why are you so tense? This is supposed to be
Fun? The word rattles around in my head. Fun – a
time or feeling of enjoyment or amusement.
Okay, let’s have some fun.

Crossing the Line by Nicola Marsh


Crossing the Line by Nicola Marsh
(World Apart #1)
Publication date: May 8th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Laying it all on the line for love…

Mia Cresswell is tired of being good.
Achieving geek status at college doesn’t equate with fun. So when she heads home to her dad’s tennis academy in Santa Monica on spring break, she’s determined to be bad. And hot Aussie tennis star Kye Sheldon is just the guy to help her do it.

However, Kye’s troubled past continues to dog him and attending the Cresswell Tennis Academy is his last chance at the big time. He can’t afford to screw up…by screwing the boss’s daughter.
But Mia and Kye’s relationship is much more than a vacation fling.
Will it be game, set, match, when the truth is revealed?
Or will Mia and Kye have a real shot at love all?







I turned toward the girl’s voice as she stepped out of the shadows, not sure what annoyed me most. The intrusion or the way she sauntered toward me, all long legs and cocky smile.

She was just my type: tall, sexy brunette with enough hip sway to make a guy wonder what made her so confident, and bedroom eyes that hinted at sin.

Sadly, this devil had just landed in the City of Angels and sin was the last thing on my agenda.

“I’m not in the mood for company,” I said, expecting her to head back inside.

She didn’t falter as she strode toward me. “Too bad, because I needed some air and this terrace is big enough for the both of us.”

I could’ve left but there was something in the way she was staring at me that had me intrigued: like she wanted me but wouldn’t have a clue what to do if she got me.

“Mia.” She stuck out her hand. “Pleased to meet you.”

“Kye.” I reluctantly shook her hand. “Wish I could say the same.”

“You don’t like girls?” She slid her hand out of mine, the insolent quirk of her lips making me want to do something I shouldn’t. Like kiss the smirk off her smart mouth.

“Love women.” I took a step back, staring at her feet and slowly sweeping upward in a deliberate perusal meant to make a point. I wanted to make her squirm. It backfired, as I noted red nail polish matching her towering shoes, slim ankles, long legs, tight black dress that ended mid-thigh and hugged her lean bod, and pert tits. The frigging dress had a front zipper that just begged to be undone. Beyond hot.

By the time I reached her face, she was blushing.

“So which am I?” She leaned forward, giving me a generous glimpse of cleavage. “Girl or woman?”
