* Release Blast/Excerpt* BEYOND JUST US by Kimberly Kincaid

Remington’s most cynical doctor is about to get upended by two little words:

I do.

Tess Michaleson runs her ER like she runs her life—no pretenses, no exceptions.

As a single mother, she can’t afford anything less.

As a woman who’s been burned by love?

She can’t believe in anything more.  

Her son and her job are the center of her world.

That’s all Tess needs.

 Until Declan Riley falls into her arms … literally. 

His tattoos and his Irish accent are enough to melt her panties

His diagnosis? That’s enough to break her heart.

But Tess can help him get the care he needs…

All she has to do is marry him.

Declan knows he should keep Tess at arm’s length.

What they have is temporary. Necessary.

And he knows from experience just

how dangerous getting close can be.

But the longer he’s around the smart, sexy doctor and her son,

the more Declan realizes

close isn’t enough.

He wants Tess. He wants it all.

Even if he has to do the one thing he swore he never would to have her.

From USA Today best-seller Kimberly Kincaid comes an older woman/younger man marriage-of-convenience story full of sizzle and sass. This full-length romance features an Irish American Air Force veteran-turned-model and a take-no-crap attending physician finding out if fairy tales really do come true.

Excerpt:

Declan had done countless harrowing things in his life. Relocated to an entirely different continent with little more than the clothes he’d been wearing. Willingly jumped out of all manner of aircraft. Completed dozens of ops he couldn’t discuss with anyone unless he wanted a big, fat court martial for Christmas (which—spoiler alert: he didn’t). But he’d never once been charged with caring for a baby, and even though Tess had given him three full minutes’ worth of rapid-fire instructions before she’d kissed her son and run out the door, Declan was starting to think this might be just a wee bit scarier than swan-diving out of a C-17.

But he’d promised Tess he’d help rather than sit around all useless and frail, so scary or not, if babysitting was what she needed, then babysitting was what he’d do.

“Right.” He squared his shoulders and looked at Jackson, who looked back at him with an equal mix of curiosity and caution. “So, I s’pose it’s just us for a bit. We’ll make the best of it, yeah?” 

As if the lad can answer, scoffed a voice from somewhere inside his head. But anything was better than silence, and besides, Tess had spoken to the boy in much the same way when she’d kissed him goodbye. It couldn’t hurt for Declan to at least give it a go.

Jackson eyed him warily, clutching his brightly colored octopus to his chest. They were going to have to get comfortable enough with each other for Declan to pick the boy up fairly soon, but he didn’t want to rush things and fuck it all up by frightening him. Or worse yet, make him cry.

Okay. He needed to think of this like an op. Objective: lull the target into a sense of safety and security. Strategy: slow movements, distraction, earned trust. Reconnoiter at the baby’s crib by twenty-hundred with a calm and happy target, ready for bedtime. 

Game on.

four-half-stars

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle her personal life with the same zeal that she brings to her successful agency.

A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner with a bad reputation. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.

She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.

Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…

 

Too much temptation to resist! With book four in her Brooklyn Bruisers series Sarina Bowen delights with a reunion no one saw coming! The characters have major chemistry and their connection is a joy to watch. Really enjoyed!

Bess Beringer is strong, capable and easy to like. She is at the top of her game as a sports agent to rich and famous hockey stars, but as she turns thirty, she’s feeling some emptiness in her personal life.

Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz is a doll of a character. He’s picking up the pieces of shattered dreams, moving on to a team he isn’t exactly meshing with yet and in walks the one woman he never forgot.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sports romance with a lot of heart. I’m looking forward to more in the series.

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the co-workers who depend on her---she can’t handle another mess.

No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak. She’s actually taking him seriously...and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

 

Erin Nicholas may have just handed us her best hero yet! With book two of her much-loved Hot Cakes series she more than delights with Dax who had me smiling throughout the entire book. He’s sexy, he’s funny, and he’s just cocky enough to make it adorable. FORKING AROUND was a super fun read with laughter, steam and lots of heartfelt moments.

Jane Kemper is very easy to like. She is everybody’s go-to when something is going on in their life, and she takes pride in helping in any way she can … but she’s gotta admit, her plate is pretty much overflowing these days.

Dax Marshall is perfectly happy living an upbeat lifestyle with fun and no worries, but the moment he sets eyes on Jane, he’s floored. He immediately knows she’s going to be his … and it’s going to be a fun ride convincing her!

I highly recommend this story as well as the previous one in the series. This group of friends and business partners are hilarious and watching them fall for “the one” when she crosses their path is the bomb. Looking forward to more in the series!

Excerpt:

He was the new strawberry pie in her life. She’d had one taste of Zoe’s strawberry pie and that had been it. Nothing else would ever measure up. She would never not crave it. She would never pass up a chance to have it on her tongue. Yeah, Dax Marshall was that. And then some. He pulled back, breathing hard, staring down at her. She quickly put her hand over his mouth. “Don’t talk. Talking is the wrong choice right now.” She was going to have to deal with the boss thing soon enough. And the millionaire thing. And the he-doesn’t-live-here-and-isn’t-staying thing. And all the other crap she always had to deal with that made this impossible. But for another minute—or maybe ten—she didn’t want to think about any of that. And if he talked, that would be very difficult. He pulled in a breath, gave her a short nod that she interpreted as okay, no talking and she moved her hand. Which was the right choice, because he leaned in as he slid his hand up the side of her body, skimming over her hip, waist, the side of her breast, up and into her hair. Then he cupped the back of her head and lowered his mouth to hers again. This time he kissed her. And seriously, she’d give up strawberry pie for this. They made out like that for long, delicious minutes. When he finally took his mouth from hers, it was to slide it along her jawline, his beard causing goose bumps to trip down her arms and tighten her nipples. In her ear he said gruffly, “I have to talk now.” She laughed lightly. “I didn’t think it would last for even this long, really.” “Well, I do love using my mouth this way too.” He dragged his lips along the side of her neck. Her nipples got even tighter, begging for him to drag those lips down there. “But I can’t resist saying—” He lifted his head. “You are the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted.” She grinned. “Well… same.” A very sexy kind of surprised but superhot look crossed his face. “What about pie?” She sighed. “Pie is amazing.” “But the kissing…” he prompted. She knew she shouldn’t tell him the truth. The guy’s ego didn’t quit. Already. But she found herself nodding. “I was really hoping you’d be bad at it. Like terrible. Like no-worry-of-dirty-dreams bad,” she said. He arched an eyebrow. “And?” She sighed. “It was really good.” “Dirty-dreams-tonight good?” His voice was rumbly and low. She nodded. “Unfortunately.” He looked very pleased by her answer. His mouth curled up. “Maybe we should combine the kissing and the pie.” Her eyes widened before she could stop it. That would be… holy crap she would never recover. “I can’t even imagine that, honestly. I might die.”

This is for charity. This is for fun. You are a professional. You can do it.

Those are the words that Calloway Alvarez chants to herself as she watches all the large men gather into the small room where she’ll be doing the interviews for her employer—Hero Magazine.

Honestly, she’s convinced herself that she can’t accomplish the task at hand.

That is until she hears his voice, and her head turns to see him standing there.

Louis Spurlock. Greek god. SWAT officer. Keeper of her secrets. Ultimate fantasy. Man who will break her heart.
***
Louis Spurlock has been playing nice.

He’s been biding his time, giving Calloway the space she thinks she needs.

But then he sees her taking photos of his friends in all states of undress, talking to them all as if they’re best friends, and that little thread of control he’d been managing to hold onto unravels.

Let’s change it up, she says. And the moment the words are out of her mouth, he’s stripping to his skivvies, and throwing out a challenge while he’s at it.

Calloway won’t know what hit her when he’s through playing.

But he does know one thing for sure. When it ends, she’ll be his.

 

They say you never forget your first love! With book five in her delicious KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series Lani Lynn Vale delights her readers with Louis and Calloway’s story and it’s a knock out!

Calloway is attention grabbing from the very first page when she has her teenage heart broken by the one man she thought she could always trust. She’s never forgotten … and she’s never forgiven.

Louis is such a nice guy! Watching him final get his foot back in the door with her is so rewarding, and watching him move into protection mode for his woman is sexy.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys steamy cop romance with a close-knit group of family and friends. There’s always a bit of intrigue in each story and these characters are just so easy to become addicted to. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

He’s about to find a baby on his doorstep … and his assistant in his bed.

Austin Prescott is a lot of things. Ex football player. Sports agent. And as of this morning? Father. Finding a baby on his doorstep should have been a joke but the pink sticky note and baby carrier she came in is deadly serious.

What’s an out of his depth bachelor to do? Call his tempting and beyond gorgeous executive assistant and beg her to move in.

Quinnlyn Stone agrees to help Austin until he can straighten out his messy life. It’s just another item on her very long To-Do list. It’s absolutely not because she’s attracted to her very single and extremely handsome boss.

Close quarters. A baby. Undeniable chemistry. What could possibly go wrong?

 

Temptation at it’s best! With the first book in her highly anticipated Dare Nation series, Carly Phillips kicks off a new branch of her infamous Dare family in a sports agency setting, and it’s delightful!

Austin Prescott carries his tough guy persona well, but underneath he has a heart of gold. When a baby is suddenly left on his doorstep, he doesn’t hesitate to take her in and call in reinforcements to help him care for her while figuring out what’s going on.

Quinnlyn Stone is a fun character. She’s accomplished and really good at her job, and even though attraction has flared between them since the day Austin hired her to be his assistant, they’ve done well at ignoring it … for the most part. The vision of him with a sweet baby in his arms just might do her in!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast paced joy of a read! The characters are easy to connect with, the plot is intriguing and the supporting cast is setting up a nice lead in to the next book in the series. I can’t wait!

He's vowed to protect her. No matter the cost.

Xander Holt loves working for the Royal Protectors. As one of the official bodyguards to the royal family of Limaj, he lives in a palace, makes more money than he ever has before, and works with the best of the best. The only catch— the person he’s assigned to protect hates his guts. Fine by him, it’s easier that way.

Life hasn’t always been a fairytale for Princess Elen Gustaffson. She finally has her family back after more than a decade in exile, but her new reality isn’t much better. The only thing worse than being on lockdown... having a hot bodyguard assigned to protect her around the clock.

As Xander and Elen butt heads, they find their undeniable attraction impossible to resist— even though it breaks all the rules. When an old enemy resurfaces, threatening Elen, Xander is willing to burn down the whole country to eliminate him, and save the princess. His princess.

The question is, can he do it in time?

 

Attraction that won’t be denied! With book two in her Royal Protectors series, Kat Mizera brings us Princess Elen’s story in XANDER. While still a large group of characters to keep straight, this one flowed easier than the first in the series and held my attention throughout. I really enjoyed the depth of their connection and watching them fall even as they fought it. Looking forward to more in the series!

Xander Holt wants nothing more than to play his part in protecting the royal family of Limaj as a member of the Royal Protectors security team, but his main charge is fighting him at every turn!

Elen Gustaffson might be a princess, but lately life is anything but a fairy tale as pressures of her family and job continue to press in on her and leave her only the outlet of hating on her bodyguard as a pressure release … only she soon realizes loving on him is a much more pleasant release!

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced romance filled with tension and suspense with a twist of modern day royalty mixed in.

About the Author:

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.

Kat’s been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

five-stars

There’s a reason they call me Wylde and it’s not just because it’s my last name.

I might be one of the newest players on the Arizona Vengeance team, but I’m no stranger to the celebrity that goes along with being a professional hockey player. Whether it’s a fan seeking an autograph or a puck bunny looking for more, I’ve grown used to the attention. I not only thrive on it; I use it to my advantage. Let’s just say my bed is rarely empty.

When a quirky redhead at the local bookstore stops me dead in my tracks, I decide to pop in and turn on the trusty Wylde magic. As smart and strong-willed as she is beautiful, Clarke Webber isn’t swayed by my witty banter or charming good looks. And when she realizes who I am and the fame that comes along with it, she likes me even less. Thankfully, I’m always up for a challenge. The more I get to know about her, the more I know my playboy days are behind me.

If I’m going to capture Clarke’s heart, it’s time to be a lot less Wylde, and a lot more Aaron.

 

How the mighty do fall! With the delectable latest in her Arizona Vengeance series Sawyer Bennett brings us WYLDE, and it’s delicious! While fairly light on the hockey standpoint because it’s taking place in the off-season, this emotional story does not fail to please. And don’t despair, we still see a ton of the teammates … maybe even more than when games are taking place.

Aaron Wylde is the epitome of a player. He’s self-assured, laid back and out for a good time. A woman rarely warms his bed for more than a night and he delights in moving on to the next. Until he arbitrarily runs by a bookstore and a flash of gorgeous red hair catches his eye … and he’s a goner!

Clarke Webber is a breath of fresh air. She doesn’t do players, and most importantly not famous ones. She puts up roadblock after roadblock to offset Aaron coming in full strength ahead, but she doesn’t seem to be able to stop her heart from falling … hard.

I adored them together and highly recommend this book as well as the rest of the series to anyone who enjoys watching tough hockey guys fall hard and redeem themselves for their lady love. Looking forward to more in the series!

And when she realizes who I am and the fame that comes along with it, she likes me even less. Thankfully, I’m always up for a challenge. The more I get to know about her, the more I know my playboy days are behind me. If I’m going to capture Clarke’s heart, it’s time to be a lot less Wylde, and a lot more Aaron.

She loves him—but does she want to get married?

She’s finally getting married—

Or not?

When Brynne Taylor breaks off her engagement to Paul Capriati, she knows her life is going to change. But when two women who claim to be triplets to her show up in her small Utah town, it’s a lot more change than she ever expected. Now she’s digging up long-buried family secrets and navigating her relationship with her ex-fiancé. Does she actually want to get married? And what’s this introverted only child going to do with two brand-new sisters?

 

A life re-imagined! With the third book in her The Taylor Triplets series, Lynne Marshall takes us on the final leg of rediscovery as the third sister is found and reconnected in THE RELUCTANT FIANCEE. It’s emotional and heartwarming all rolled in together.

Brynne Taylor was a difficult character for me. I liked her on a whole in the situation with her family, but man, she treated Paul so badly. I just could never quite fully redeem her.

Paul on the other hand is delightful. He’s kind, he’s loving and all he wants in life is to share it with Brynne.

I highly recommend this book and this series as a whole to anyone who enjoys an emotional journey to love, family and happily ever after.

I command the keyboard,

but the only woman to command my heart is back…

bigger, badder, and more beautiful than ever.

Ozzy Page has it all—fame, fans, and a fortune too massive to spend. As keyboard player for renowned rock group Licks of Leather, he’s on top of the charts—and the world. But living his dream cost him the only woman he ever loved. His secret fling with Mia Harris was consuming and intense—and crushing when she used him to springboard her career. Seven years after their devastating breakup, watching her rise up the charts—on her new rock star lover’s back—has nearly destroyed his heart all over again.

Mia Harris didn’t curl up and die when Ozzy Page chose his career over their love. Like her namesake, she rose from the ashes and reinvented herself as Phoenix, the sultry-voiced siren taking the male-dominated rock scene by storm. But when her personal life goes to hell, their mutual agent blindsides Mia with the news that she and Ozzy will be touring together for six long, close-quarter months.

Will they finally learn to understand and forgive each other…or will their unforgettable longing end in flames?

 

A rock star reunion! With book three in her Licks of Leather series Jenna Jacobs brings us the secrets behind Ozzy’s angst in ROCK ME SLOWER. I’m loving getting to know the guys of this band and Ozzy has always been intriguing, so hearing about the past that won’t let him go is attention grabbing from the start. The ending was a bit abrupt, but I enjoyed their story a lot.

Ozzy Page grabs a reader’s heart quickly when we realize the pain he’s been holding near and dear to his heart for the years since he walked away from his one true love. He might be living a rock stars dream, but his heart hasn’t forgotten what it once had.

Mia Harris is hard to pin down at first. We sort of like her, but we don’t think much of her attitude in how it all ended with Ozzy, but then we start to learn some of her background and she starts to redeem herself somewhat.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys watching a low key rock n roll band overlook their stardom to accept love with open arms when it crosses their path. These characters are endearing and I’m looking forward to more to come.
