Those that truly know August Greenfield, will tell you that I live my life to the fullest. Work hard as part of the team at Jameson Force Security but play just as hard at The Wicked Horse Vegas. I have no regrets about my life.

Well, maybe just one.

Leighton Hale was my first love and the woman I wanted to spend my life with, but one day she was just gone. Vanished without a trace. Even my extensive contacts as part of the team at Jameson left me empty-handed in my search for answers. My single remorse is never being able to find out what happened to her, because no matter how difficult the truth may be, it can’t be as bad as never knowing at all.

Ten years later, a knock on my front door brings me face-to-face with the woman I thought I’d never see again and nothing in my life could have prepared me for the secrets she holds.

 

Emotional and decadently raw! With book eight in her much loved Wicked Horse Vegas series Sawyer Bennett continues to delight with WICKED SECRET. Fans of her Jameson Force Security series will see a bit of a cross-over here as the main character is employed there and some of the team comes into play in this book. I enjoyed it a lot and cannot wait for Declan’s story!

August Greenfield is intriguing. He’s seriously dedicated to his job, but equally enriched by his downtime. When a blast from the past reenters his life, he simply can’t believe it after all this time … and the secrets this one time love of his life spills are life changing.

Leighton Hale disappeared ten years ago without a trace and now that desperation has brought her to August’s doorstep, it’s time to share the burden of her secrets.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sexually adventurous romance with a side of intrigue and danger. The characters were easy to connect with and their story was emotional and fulfilling.

* 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.

Remember that time you accidentally woke up in Vegas married to your hot younger guy friend?

That’s basically my life right now.

Mistakes we made, okay?

He's too young for me. Twenty-three to my thirty. And he's saving himself for the right girl.

Yup. Apparently I've married the last alpha-male virgin on the planet. And my stubborn, oddly traditional, new husband doesn’t want a divorce.

He wants me.

Complicated doesn't even begin to cover it.

 

Instantly married! With the fifth book in her delightfully sexy Hot Jocks series, Kendall Ryan brings us Landon’s story in DOWN AND DIRTY and it’s super yummy!

Landon is a breath of fresh air! He’s tough and manly with the best of them as he handles the pressures of the NHL with ease, but he isn’t sleeping his way through the puck bunnies every day of the week.

Aubree is cynical, but fun. I wasn’t sure I was going to like her at first because she was being a bit standoffish, but once she let her guard down, it was easy to see why Landon was falling so hard for her.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series. All of these players and their significant others are delightful. A virgin hero isn’t easy to pull off, but Kendall Ryan made it look easy. Looking forward to more in the series!

 

 

 

 

 

Down and Dirty
By Kendall Ryan
Release Day: March 10, 2020

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel.

Whoops.

Last night in Vegas is a blur. There were drunken shenanigans … And now I’m waking up naked wrapped around Landon freaking Covington, my incredibly hot younger guy friend, with a wedding ring on my finger and a marriage certificate on the table next to me.

Like I said, whoops. I’m thirty. I should know better, but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?

Well, apparently not.

Because I’ve married the last alpha-male virgin on the planet. Yep, virgin. And my stubborn, oddly traditional new husband doesn’t want a divorce. He wants me.

Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 368 Pages
March 1st 2020 by Harlequin Heartwarming

She’ll save him a dance…

…if he follows his heart.

Dance teacher Camile Wynn has a new student. Reclusive Rhys McGrath is learning to waltz so he can take his orphaned niece to a father-daughter dance. Camile is surprised by her connection with him, but there’s a generous heart behind Rhys’s awkward exterior. When she learns Rhys could lose custody of his niece, Camile goes behind his back to help him…but will her lies end up hurting him instead?

Excerpt

Two lessons, one dance, Camile reminded herself. Get in, get out, done.

“Good! You got this. Again,” she said.

Rhys repeated the movement.

“Now, this time, don’t stop. Just keep box stepping, and I’ll do it with you.” They performed the movements together with Camile counting and snapping her fingers.

Still moving, she danced around in a half circle until she was facing him, mirroring his steps. “Excellent. And there you have it. Now you’re going to try it with me.”

He stopped in his tracks, brow lines back in full force.

Facing him, Camile patted her left shoulder and instructed, “Right hand here.” He complied, and she ignored how nice the heat of his hand felt as it seeped through the thin fabric of her tank top. “Left arm up.” He obeyed. Silently, she admitted there was something vaguely satisfying about barking orders at him. But this action, the press of his palm against hers, the feel of the work-roughened texture of his skin, her hand enfolded in his, was slightly more difficult to ignore. She told herself it was just the shock of it all, being here with him. Dancing.

“Ah,” he said, tilting his chin toward the floor again. “Now I see why you’re wearing heels.”

“Is that your way of insulting my height?” she joked, breaking her own rule before she could stop herself.

He brought his gaze back up and locked it on to hers, and Camile was a little taken aback by the intensity she saw there. “No. Absolutely not. Why would that be insulting? I’m sorry if you took it that way.”

“Um, it’s—it’s fine,” she stammered. “I was joking. I know I’m short. It would be difficult to forget as the only short person in a family of very tall people. You know, recessive genes or whatever.”

“That would not be the case,” he said. “Height is polygenic. And there are other variables. It’s more quantitative than that. So the term recessive doesn’t apply when it comes to height.”

Camile squinted up at him, trying to decide if he was serious. When he didn’t blink, she said, “I know. At least three genes are involved and like six alleles, right?” Genetics had been one of her favorite premed courses. “Plus, there are nutritional and environmental factors. I wasn’t being literal. I was exaggerating for effect. Making fun of the fact that I drew the short straw in my family.” She added a wink.

Gaze narrowed in on her, he shook his head a couple of times very slowly as if thinking carefully about how to respond.

Embarrassed by her lame joke, she clarified, “That was a bad pun. Sorry.”

When he spoke, his eyes traveled over her while his mouth hinted at a smile. “No, you’re wrong. It was not a bad pun. It was a very good pun. But there’s nothing inferior about your genetic fate. Quite the contrary. Height is also a very subjective preference as far as attractiveness goes. Studies have shown that shorter women with discernible curves are the most symmetrically pleasing. I happen to agree with the consensus.”

Camile stared into his earnest blue eyes and felt her lips part. What the…? Her neck went hot as she tried to wrap her brain around this moment. Obviously, the man was brilliant in a way that resulted in a unique perspective. But the part that had her speechless was the fact that he’d just given her a really lovely compliment. Like, spellbindingly good. And he seemed sincere. Granted, the delivery wasn’t the smoothest, but the meaning was there. It also caught her off guard and made her feel warm in even more surprising ways. Ways she shouldn’t feel. Not with Rhys McGrath, date absconder, social snob and possibly worse, if any of the rumors were true.

 

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Carol Ross grew up in small town America right between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains, in a place where you can go deep sea fishing in the morning and then hit the ski slopes the same afternoon. The daughter of what is now known as free range parents, she developed a love of the outdoors at a very early age. As a writer, Carol loves to breathe the life she has lived into the characters she creates, grateful for the “research material” that every questionable decision, adrenaline-charged misstep, and near-death experience has provided.

Dominik (Arizona Vengeance, Book #6)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 18, 2020

 

Synopsis:
I built myself up from nothing. A product of the foster care system, I learned early on how to fight hard to get what I want. Whether it was starting my first company in college, earning my first billion, or buying my first professional sports team, I know how to get what I want, when I want it.

Until now.

Willow Monahan is fierce, independent, and hot as hell. She also takes great pleasure in shutting down my advances. The younger sister of one of my star players, Willow intrigues me to my very core. And while she may have willingly given me her body, she is hesitant to offer up more. Now I’m on a mission to find out why.

I’ve decided to approach my desire for Willow like I’ve approached much of my life; with persistence, determination, and a whole lot of that Dominik Carlson alpha charm. Buying a hockey expansion team, building the Arizona Vengeance from the ground up, and bringing home a championship may prove to be an easier feat than winning Willow’s heart.

But I’ve never been a quitter.

Willow Monahan… I’m coming for you.

Sometimes people come into a person’s life and make their heart skip a beat.

Those people are called cops.

Well, one cop in particular.

A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific.

The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later.

When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face.

Well, screw you, too, Mr. February.

***

Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer.

She was a mousy girl who dressed like a twelve-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didn’t leave much of an impression.

Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention.

Too bad that happens when he’s trying to save her from what’s sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan who’s convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars.

When he tries to save her, she tells him she’d rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him.

Challenge. Accepted.

 

Forbidden desire at it’s best! FRIES BEFORE GUYS is book two in Lani Lynn Vale’s delicious KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series and center around the chief of police’s son Derek and the teen photographer we saw in a previous book Avery. The story line has so much happening that you can’t take your eyes off it for a minute. Lots of sass, loads of sexual tension and so much heart you just can’t stand it. Really enjoyed them!

Avery is a character that makes you want to take her under your wing and be her family. She’s lost both of her parents in recent years and is struggling to just get by and finish school. Her photography business is keeping her busy and it’s at a photo shoot for the police force calendar where she meets the man she can’t stop thinking about .. only problem is, he treats her like someone else’s kid sister.

Derek takes charge of the scene as soon as he walks in. He’s self-assured, always aware and lusting after someone he can’t have. What’s a guy to do? When situation after situation keeps popping up around her, he decides he’s going to be there for her no matter what … and when he decides to be all in, the chemistry is off the charts!

I highly recommend this book and the series as a whole to anyone who enjoys a sassy writing style with a boatload of heart, steamy scenes, and a surrounding cast of close friends and family. You can’t go wrong with Kilgore Police Department! Looking forward to more in the series.

Easton:

Hockey isn’t forever.

The money, excitement, and glory of being a professional hockey player meant more to me than a family, a home, and a forever. Another man has my forever, and I have hockey. I thought making the big bucks and playing against the best in the world would feel better than this. Instead I’m empty and hollow, like a big piece of my heart was hacked off. There's something missing. Something big. Something I can never get back.

Caroline:

I loved him, but he wasn’t the love of my life.

My husband died too young, too suddenly, too tragically. I was unprepared with no education, no job skills, and no future plans. When a DNA test reveals my twins' true parentage, I have no choice but to do the right thing. I turn to the one man who’d turned his back on me all those years ago.

I'd been shutout from his life, and I'd shut him out from mine. Can two strangers make a family? Do we have what it takes to forgive and move on?

 

Complex characters, boatloads of sexual chemistry and a revelation that’s about to blow their lives out of the water! With the first book in her highly anticipated The Scoring Series, Jami Davenport does not disappoint as she takes us back into her Seattle Sockeyes world with a new round of rookies in SHUTOUT. The tension is throbbing, the stakes are high and emotions are on edge.

Easton is an easy to like character. He should be on top of the world. He just made it into the NHL with the on fire Seattle Sockeyes! So why does it feel like a let down? He’ll soon be realizing that there’s a lot more to life than the game he’s been living and breathing for years.

Caroline on the other hand is more complex. She needs us to believe she’s a bit dimwitted to not find her at fault at all in this story line … and even if we can get past that portion, she’s just so wrong in her approach of keeping him away.

I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good hockey romance with tons of drama, emotional depth and heart pulling chemistry. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series already!

About the Book

Hello, rock?
Meet hard place.

Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.

But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.

We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.

She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.

He’s the bad boy her mother warned her about.

The guy who makes her crave all the naughty things a good girl shouldn’t want.

Tanner Grayson is a man outrunning the demons of his past and has the rap sheet to prove it. The only thing keeping old anger in check and him on the straight and narrow are the men he calls brothers and the club he calls home. He has no business taking the sexy woman doing shots in his club upstairs to his bed.

They never should have crossed paths. But when Assistant District Attorney Scarlett Davis lays eyes on the hot as sin club owner, she decides he’s the birthday present she wants to unwrap at the end of the evening.

He tells himself it’s one night. She convinces herself she deserves a short break from her latest case. But one night isn’t enough and soon these two opposites are in deeper than they ever planned.

When Scarlett’s case collides with Tanner’s past, she sees the dangerous man he’s hidden beneath the cool veneer he presents to the world. Can she accept him for who he is? Or will she run from the bad boy who makes her feel so good?

 

She’s sugar and he’s spice! TWICE AS SEXY is the second book in the delectable Sexy Series by Carly Phillips and I could not have loved it more! Yummy characters, an attention grabbing plot and steaming hot chemistry held my attention page after page.

Tanner was an endearing character to get to know. He saw himself as flawed and bad, but I adored him. Yes, he had a past … but he was so kind and sincere. I really enjoyed seeing him fall hard and fast.

Scarlett is a do-getter, and once we learn her story we really understand what pushes her to conquer the world. She doesn’t know Tanner’s past when she starts falling for him, and watching her have to come to terms with it in the end is emotional.

I highly recommend this book as well as the first in the series. It’s fast paced and full of heart with characters that are super easy to connect with. I’m really enjoying the guys of Club TEN29 and I can’t wait for Landon to meet his match!

Excerpt:

Scarlett didn’t know where her sudden burst of courage came from, but she wasn’t about to turn away now. Not when she had the sexiest man she’d ever laid eyes on ready to take her to bed. Her body trembled with desire and an awareness that something special was about to happen between them. Especially with the way Tanner’s eyes darkened at her bold, certain words of reassurance.

Grasping her hand, he led her back into the main room and to the elevator he’d walked out of earlier. He hit a button and the doors slid open. No sooner were they enclosed in the small area than she found herself surrounded by the sensual scent of his masculine cologne and by the man himself.

He hit the floor number, then backed her against the wall and braced his hips against hers. The hardness of his erection pressed into her sex, and she moaned at the anticipation of what was to come, her underwear growing damp with arousal.

“Make no mistake. You might have been the one to convince me but I’m taking control now.”

No man in her past ever spoke to her in such a self-assured, dominant way. To her surprise, she liked it. Hell, her perky nipples were proof of that, and he was looking down at the evidence with dilated pupils. Before she could respond, the elevator dinged and the doors slid open.

Holding her hand once more, he led her down a short hall and unlocked the sole door. She stepped into the apartment, which was smaller than she’d anticipated, realizing immediately he didn’t live here. There were no personal effects anywhere on the shelves, and the steel and white décor gave a sterile feeling to the place.

The door shut behind them.

“We share the apartment, my partners and I,” he said, as if reading her mind. “Whoever has the night shift uses it if they don’t feel like going home late. Although since Jason got married, it’s just me and Landon.”

She looked around once more. “It’s beautiful. Just very empty,” she murmured.

He shrugged, sliding his jacket off his broad shoulders. “It serves a purpose.”

“Do you bring many women up here?” he asked, unable to withhold her curiosity. After all, he was a hot guy with easy access to a bed above where he worked.

His sharp gaze slid to hers. “None. At least not anymore.” He hesitated before going on. “I admit when we first opened the club, the women throwing themselves at me were a novelty that I indulged, but after a while, they all seemed to have an agenda.”

“Such as?” she asked.

“They assumed because I owned the club I had money, and they wanted to be the woman on my arm permanently.”

His voice turned bitter and she didn’t blame him. “You don’t have to worry about that with me. My job and my life are too full to want anything more than one night.”

A sinful smile curved his lips. “So I’m your birthday present?”

She nodded. “And I can’t wait to unwrap you.”

* Release Blitz * CODE NAME: HEIST by Sawyer Bennett


Code Name: Heist (Jameson Force Security, Book #3)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: January 7, 2020

 

Synopsis:
I am a world-class thief. Or I was, before I got pinched and landed in prison. After I served my time, I decided to get on the right side of the law, or as much as my job at Jameson Force Security allows. The lines sometimes blur, which suits me just fine. My name might be Saint, but I’m a devil to most.

My plan to go legitimate is going as anticipated, until my past and present collide in a big way. While in Paris preparing to take down a ring of highly specialized thieves, I come face-to-face with my biggest threat—and my most dangerous temptation.

Sindaria “Sin” Westin was the love of my life, until her betrayal landed me behind bars. Now I’ve got to find a way to trust her again, at least long enough to pull off this job. When it becomes clear the price for this heist will be our lives, I realize I need to do whatever it takes to keep Sin safe, even if it means trading my life for hers. Because no matter the lies I’ve told myself, Sin’s greatest theft was the day she stole my heart.

About the Author:
Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
