DO YOU LIKE MY WIENER?: a non-expert’s no-nonsense guide to dating by Brenda Rothert just went LIVE!

Check out www.DoYouLikeMyWiener.com for exclusive details and fun extras!


BLURB: 

***With laugh-out-loud mishaps and heartfelt advice, bestselling romance author Brenda Rothert shows readers that while dating these days can be the worst, great men aren’t just fictional.***

Ladies, we’ve all been there…a good first date is wrapping up and we’re sure a second date is likely after a great goodnight kiss beside our car. He’s tall, funny and charming. FINALLY a good one. He asks to get in the car, which seems natural since it’s cold outside. And then, once inside, another kiss, and he exposes himself and asks us if we like his wiener.
Wait, what? You haven’t been there? Guess that one only happened to me. What about the guy who spends most of a first date complaining bitterly about his ex-wife? The one with the guy who cops to his criminal record over dessert?
Dating these days can leave a girl frustrated and disgusted. But fear not, I’m here to help. I’m a veteran dater, having spent a fair amount of time in the cheap-cologne scented trenches. And while I am admittedly not an expert, I can help you avoid my mistakes.
I’ll show you how to prepare yourself for dating, how to spot the red flags and how to laugh off the misadventures you will inevitably have. And hopefully, how to avoid an awkward wiener encounter of your own.

HOT SEAL Redemption

 

 

Title: HOT SEAL Redemption
A Hostile Operations Team Series Standalone
Author: Lynn Raye Harris
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: May 15, 2018

Blurb

Bailey Jones doesn’t
know jack about babies, but she knows how much it sucks to have a deadbeat
father. So when her sister drops off her newborn baby and then disappears, Bailey
is ready and willing to confront anyone, including a six-foot-two,
sexier-than-sin Navy SEAL sniper, and make him do his duty.

Alexei “Camel”
Kamarov is not the sort of man to carelessly father a kid, but as the oldest of
six, he does know a thing or two about babies. The firebrand on his doorstep
might have mistakenly tagged him as the baby daddy, but Bailey is cute, and
Alexei is more than willing to give her a hands-on class in Baby 101.
When a ruthless criminal
comes looking for the missing sister—putting Bailey and the baby in danger—the
situation escalates. Bringing them under his roof and enlisting his HOT
teammates to help find Bailey’s sister are easy. But as Alexei and Bailey draw
closer, passions erupt and feelings tangle.
That’s nothing
compared to the danger lurking in the shadows—and the test that awaits them
both. Bailey will need to give everything she’s got to redeem Alexei’s faith in
love. And he’ll have to move heaven and earth to save her—before someone takes
her away from him for good…

Excerpt
“Magic sperm, Bailey. I could father six kids before I knew
what happened to me. Hell, my luck, it’d happen all at once.”
Bailey winced. “Ouch.”
“Yeah, ouch is right.”
She grinned at him. “Well, sure, ouch for you too—but I was thinking more about
the poor woman who would have to carry six babies in her belly before popping
them all out. What a nightmare.”
“And now you know why I wrap it tight.”
Unexpected heat flared beneath her skin. Holy shit, was that a blush? Really?
But the thought of this man standing in front of her with a hard on, his hand
wrapped around it as he slid on a condom, was almost unbearably sexy. 
He cocked his head. “Are you blushing?”
Hell. So much for being cool. “A little. Maybe.” Why deny what he could clearly
see happening?
“Over birth control?”
Bailey rolled her eyes. “Not over birth control, you idiot. More or less the
thought of you putting the condom on.”
His gaze went smoky—and then it dropped over her body, slowly, before rising
again. Their eyes met. Held. Her heart pounded. No, no, no. Bad idea. So bad.
“I’d be happy to give you a personal demonstration.”

Jolie and Scoobie High School Misadventures

Jolie and Scoobie High School Misadventures
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #0.5
by Elaine Orr
Genre: Cozy Mystery
When Jolie Gentil’s parents leave her with Aunt Madge for her junior
year so they can ‘work things out’ in their marriage, she’s
angry. She knows no one at Ocean Alley High School. Some kids snub
her, but she makes friends with the irreverent Scoobie. He’s quirky
and fun, but he’s skipped school and smoked pot in the past, so
people avoid him. Jolie learns how to shoot a squirt gun from under
the boardwalk and tries not to flunk geometry. She also learns that
the family she babysits for has a secret, one that puts Jolie in
danger. You’ve met Jolie and Scoobie as crime-solving adults. Check
out their high school friendship. Same humor, different challenges.
Plus a couple of hints about why Jolie wants to get to the bottom of
murders when she’s all grown up.
Appraisal For Murder
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #1
Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge’s Jersey shore B&B, taking her
cat Jazz, and joining Madge’s pair of prune-eating dogs. It’s not a
retreat from her embezzling ex-husband, just a smart change. Jolie
rekindles friendships, dodges a low-level wise guy, and tries to
figure out her new life. She hasn’t seen her high school classmates
in ten years, and they weren’t all buds. Why care if a couple of them
are murder suspects? Because finding a dead body when you’re
appraising a house grabs your attention.
Jolie balances fear of a smart-mouth wise guy with a belief that her
friends are innocent. Her murder suspects include one accused’s
ex-wife and beneficiaries of the dead woman’s will. Jolie keeps
searching, but will someone’s plans leave her alive to find the truth?
**Only .99 cents!!**
Rekindling Motives
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #2
When Jolie Gentil gets tapped for some appraisal work at her tenth high
school reunion she does not expect to find the skeleton of Richard
Tillotson in an antique attic wardrobe in the vacant house. He
vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929.
Jolie sees a link to the Tillotson-Fisher family’s Prohibition era
business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues
from old photo albums and ledgers. The albums lead to Mary Doris
Milner, Richard’s girlfriend, who has fond memories of him and is
certain of who murdered him. But, she couldn’t prove it then and he’s
long dead, too.
The present day murder of Mary Doris tells Jolie and Scoobie they are on
the right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill
her, and will solving Mary Doris’ murder lead to a culprit in a
decades-old crime? Between running the food pantry at Christmas and
escaping a burning building, Jolie wants to figure out who the modern
killer is before someone else gets hurt.
When the Carny Comes To Town
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #3
Though she never liked the idea of sitting on the plank above the dunk tank
for the food pantry’s carnival fundraiser, Jolie never dreamed what
Scoobie saw that day would leave him battling for his life. Scoobie’s
ex-con mother shows up and there’s a murder to add to the mix. Soon
Jolie is doing more than appraising real estate. Even that is
complicated by home burglars. She grudgingly seeks help from her
nemesis, reporter George Winters, and tries to stay ahead of a
kidnapper and murderer so she can take charge of her world again. Can
she keep her friends safe? Will Scoobie recover enough to plan
another silly fundraiser?
Any Port in a Storm
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #4
Jolie Gentil and friends are putting the finishing touches on the Talk Like
a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry and trying to figure out
who’s breaking into some of the houses Jolie appraises. When she
realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids into trouble,
Jolie’s mad and lets him know it. Hayden offers to help her mind her
own business, and people at the fundraiser hear her give him what
for. A hurricane’s on the way, and when a corpse turn up under the
pirate ship the next day, Jolie’s looking like a suspect.
Trouble on the Doorstep
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #5
From Hurricane Sandy to Cozy Corner B&B repairs to Aunt Madge’s
wedding in three weeks. If Jolie can handle that surely she can deal
with a sobbing woman who shows up at midnight playing a scary message
on her phone. Pooki is frantic about her husband’s whereabouts and is
definitely ditzy. A shady deal for storm repairs at the Ocean Alley
Senior Complex seems to be at the root of Steve Oliver’s hit-and-run
death and missing business partner, Pooki’s husband, Eric. When
Eric ends up dead at the B&B, Jolie digs for clues as she burns
muffins and appraises houses. Can Jolie find the murderer and expose
fraudulent repair bids – without getting hurt?
Behind the Walls
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #6
Finalist for Chanticleer 2014 Mystery and Mayhem Award. It’s fun to buy a
house. Unless someone wants what’s hidden behind the walls and is
willing to kill for it. Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a
burglar, but the guy she’s most worried about is the one who left
an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. Suspects abound, but
they aren’t all going to live to tell their story.
Vague Images
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #7
Bad enough that Jolie ends up in the emergency room because she avoided a
deer. Worse to find a dead woman in the hospital restroom. In between
appraising houses and feeding her pet skunk, Jolie’s on the lookout
for a runaway teenager and whoever planted the dead woman in her
path. Thanks to best bud Scoobie, she’s also planning a crazy
fundraiser for the food pantry. Just when Jolie’s ready to leave
the murder investigation to the police, she gets a surprise—and
it’s not a good one. Will her need to know see her hurt—or worse?
Ground to a Halt
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #8
When Jolie Gentil goes to buy a cup of coffee, she finds Java Jolt empty.
A bigger surprise is seeing proprietor Joe Regan later, badly
injured. A potential killer thinks Jolie has something he was hiding.
Jolie needs to figure out who’s telling the truth and how far the
thugs will go to find what they want. Only solving the puzzle will
keep Jolie safe, protect a vulnerable Iraqi War vet, and make sure
she stays alive. But if Jolie keeps searching, her budding romance
with Scoobie may grind to a halt.
Holidays in Ocean Alley
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #9
Aunt Madge’s brief stay in assisted living (don’t stand on a stool to
hang garland) would be uneventful, except for the body that falls
into her apartment along with a Christmas wreath. After years of
telling Jolie not to be a busybody, Aunt Madge turns to Jolie’s
boyfriend Scoobie to help find clues. Told from Madge and Scoobie’s
points of view, with help from some feisty seniors.
The Unexpected Resolution
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mysteries #10
A midnight wedding, Army veterans who face repercussions of two
different wars, and a very startling wedding guest. A 9-1-1 call
during the wedding changes everything. Jolie has to help Scoobie
figure out what he wants to know, and determine who seems to want
someone in his family dead. Book 10 in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery
series brings together the close-knit group of friends and zany Ocean
Alley townspeople for a very special event – and a murder.

Synopsis
From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

Lies Love Regrets

#KU #GAY

This book will get your pulse rate racing.

Lies Love Regrets – B.J. Smyth takes you on a journey into a world of hot m/m erotica and deceit.

Andrew opened the door and let me in. All he was wearing was a towel around his waist.
‘Hello, gorgeous.’ As he closes the door, he pushes me against the wall. His hands grab the sides of my face as he kisses me passionately. I can feel his cock is hard as he pushes it against me, his tongue exploring my mouth as he lightly bites my lower lip. My cock stiffens as he continues to kiss and grind against me.
‘I want you, gorgeous.’ He said in a breathless voice in between kisses. His hands slide down the back of my trunks and grab my arse cheeks. I slide my hands down his back, grab the towel and pull it away from his body, leaving him naked against me.
He moves from my mouth and softly bites down the side of my neck, his tongue licking my skin after each bite. Slowly, he works his way down my chest, biting my right nipple as he slides my trunks down, releasing my hard cock, continuing down my body, kissing my stomach as he gets to his knees. I close my eyes and moan as each bite gets closer to my throbbing cock.

His Honey

Title: His Honey
Series: Wounded Souls Series, Book Two
Author: Leah Sharelle
Genre: MC/Former Soldier Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2018

 

I love you so much, Stella Hogan. You are the best part of my day.

 

BOOTH
Vincent Booth’s whole life has been one of responsibility, – from his years in the military leading his men through battle to being president of the his club, the Wounded Souls. But with responsibility comes guilt. The Danger to the club and death haunts him. To keep his family safe, he has to stay strong, but the club’s beautiful cook could derail him.
STELLA
Stella Hogan has her own terrible secrets. The biggest is being in love with the president of the Wounded Soul’s motorcycle club. Booth frustrates her but is able to command her with just one look from his grey eyes. The handsome former commando’s inner struggles break her heart, and his fierce loyalty puts it back together.
Stella has the power to bring Booth to his knees. He can’t let her, can he? Will Booths deepest secret be his ultimate failure? Or can he trust her to be the light in his darkness?
Can Stella trust him enough to give him her heart? Will the danger that surrounds the club destroy them? Or will a shattering discovery end it all before it has even begun?



I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn’t happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don’t do angst, in fact it drives me crazy. 


I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.

I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.

I love Pina Colada’s and getting caught in the rain….. there’s that weird humor.

Capturing her heart may save them both.


Heroes aren’t born. They’re made through hard work, discipline and the love of their country.


Brenton “Trigger” O’Connor, has seen many things in his years as a Marine sniper. He’s seen the destinations of war – the heartache of losing a friend. The last thing he was looking for while back home was finding love.


Avery’s world has been one battle after another. If it’s not her alcoholic father, it’s the ex from hell trying to ruin her. Brent coming back home changes everything. The bad may outweigh the good, but with the big man with her, things may be looking up.


When danger strikes and Avery’s life is on the line, it’s Brent who will have to save the woman who has stolen his heart before it’s too late.


Excerpt:


“When did you get back into town?” Her voice sent a shiver through me. It had been a few years since I’d seen her and I’d almost forgotten what she sounded like. I ran my eyes up and down her body, unabashedly. She looked good, damn good.
“A few days ago. I figured someone would have mentioned it,” I said, giving Randilyn a pointed look. She put her hands on her hips and glared at me. Jeez!
“I ain’t your message center. I have a life, ya know.” The shop phone rang, saving me from having to get her riled up. She stalked over to the phone and I moved closer to Avery.
“You sure you’re okay? I have a good ear if you need it.” I meant it, too. Whatever it was, I’d listen, and then track down the person or persons that had caused those tears and tear them apart, limb from limb. No big deal.
“I’m okay. Just had a moment.” She smiled and leaned back against the monster of a truck Randilyn had been working on. I couldn’t help but look her over again. Needless to say, she was a lot more filled out now than she was the last time I saw her. I could appreciate that very much. Avery had curves in all the right places. She had always been beautiful as a teenager, but to see her now – well, let’s just say that it had me reciting the alphabet backwards and trying to think of anything other than her sexy little body.
“Hey, what brings you here, anyway?” Avery asked, pulling me from my thoughts and halting my perusal of her body. I smiled and gave Randilyn a side glance before I leaned in and lowered my voice a little.
“I need the crazy one to look at my Jeep. I busted a headlight and bent the corner of my bumper last night while I was out riding on the beach.”
“Holy crap! You were in an accident?” Avery stands to her full height, eyes wide. I held up my hands and sighed. I took a few steps closer to where she was so her excited words wouldn’t catch Randilyn’s attention.
“It’s not a big deal. I had a run in with a sand dune and a ditch-”
“You what? Oh My God! Are you sure you’re okay?” Her voice rose as she moved to check me over. I won’t lie, her warm hands on my forearms had energy coursing through me. I shook my head and moved to take her hands.
“I’m fine, seriously. Nothing was hurt but my Jeep, and maybe my pride. I promise.”
“What did you do to the Jeep? Damn you, Brent! I’ve kept that old thing moving and in one piece for the last three years. Men.” She scowled. “You haven’t had it back for a week and already fuc-”
“Randilyn!” Avery scolded. I had to bite back a laugh as they scowled at each other. It was good to see that nothing really changed while I was gone. “Watch your language. Jesus, you’d give a sailor on a three day pass a run for his money with that mouth.”
“Ooh… right, like your snarky ass can’t lay out the words.” She paused for a moment, a strange look coming over her. “A sailor, you say. I could think of many ways to give one of them a run for their money. Especially with my mouth.” She waggled her brows and laughed. I’m sure it was a victory laugh.
I’m pretty sure the look of abject horror was written all over my face, cause I threw up a little in my mouth. Eww. I didn’t need to know that or hear it. Could I bleach my ears now? Would that make it so I couldn’t hear such things?
“Ugh, you nasty thing.” The laugh that bubbled out of Avery made me smile. She gave me a look before bringing her attention back to Randilyn’s crazy ass. “Go check Brent’s Jeep before I put a sock in your mouth,” Avery told her, shooing her away with her hands.
I laughed at Avery’s comment. Randilyn scowled and muttered to herself about putting a sock of her own somewhere as she went out the bay door. I shook my head. I took Avery’s hand and was about to thank her for saving me from Satan’s wrath when I heard a slew of curses filter in from outside. I snorted and rocked back on my feet.
“She’s gonna kill me… I’m going to escape out the back door. Tell her I’m borrowing her truck-”
“Do you have a death wish?” Avery cut me off, her brow raised. Damn, she was so cute when she did that. I shook my head and dangled the keys I pulled from my pocket.
“Nope, I have a key, I’ve used it before. She’ll be fine. I need to get back home, I do have a few things to do there. I’ll need a vehicle to do the rest… maybe I’ll borrow Dad’s truck.”
“Yeah, that’s a good idea.” Avery stopped and tilted her head. Randilyn was muttering something that I was having trouble making out. “She just threatened you with bodily harm from out there. Did you miss that?” she laughed as she took my hand and led me towards the front of the bay. On the other side of that door was a rabid pitbull ready to rip into me. I didn’t want to go out there, but I wasn’t going to not go with her.
“Are you leading me to my slaughter?” I asked, only half joking as we made it outside. Avery giggled and shook her head. Damn, she was cute. I’d forgotten just what that smile of hers did to me.
“Of course not.” She turned to look over her shoulder and did a fake whisper that had me chuckling. “I won’t let the big bad mechanic hurt you.”
“Good to know, darlin’.” I watched as Randilyn bent down and tugged on my Jeep’s bumper. I heard a crack and her curses drowned out everything else.

~Meet Barb Shuler~


I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth… so I have a Texas-sized temper. Living and working in both states I’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.
As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby – a passion, really. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one’s mind. That is what got me to start writing as a kid. If I had paper…or a wall… I was writing. Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?
During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or I am fighting with the voices in my head. (They can be stubborn at times.) It’s a way to cope and make the troubles of the day disappear, if only for a few hours. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. For that which is my creation, may become someone else’s treasure.
Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible.
