Author Bio
Cecelia Mecca is the author of the bestselling Border
Series medieval romance.
A former English teacher, Cecelia combines two of her
passions, romance novels and the middle ages, transporting readers to an
admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles. Her first series, set
along the Anglo-Scottish border in 13th century Northumbria, turned Cecelia
from educator to full-time author. Readers love the Border Series for its focus
on well-developed characters and their steamy relationships leading to
satisfying happily ever afters.
Cecelia lives in Northeast, Pennsylvania with her husband
and two young children where she can be found either planning a Disney trip,
watching period dramas or convincing her children to watch Star Wars. She is
firmly House Stark and Gryffindor.

Simmer

Title: Simmer
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2018
Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development

My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without.

I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn’t want anyone’s pity. I didn’t need it. Pity wouldn’t put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me.

Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice—with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own.

Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn’t let myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming—and relentless. He sees beyond the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I don’t recognize.

It doesn’t matter how I melt in his presence when the heat between us threatens to boil over.

That’s the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets burned.

Especially when they’re foolish enough to fall in love.

“Hey, Kostas!” A voice called out behind us. “Still coming here at the butt crack of dawn?” Chase ambled over to us. He was a grad student, too, but I only knew him through a friend of mine. “And you’ve got a pretty running partner now.”

I didn’t like or dislike him, but his presence now made me bristle with irritation. I suspected it had something to do with how he brazenly eye fucked Sara as she leaned back on the bench.

 

“I don’t think we’ve met. I’m Chase. Nice to meet you.” He extended a hand to Sara with a huge, shit-eating grin. I gripped the edge of the metal bench to fight the urge to ball my hands into fists and pummel them right in his face.

 

“Sara.” She gripped his hand, and he didn’t let go as easily as he should have, or at least as easily as I thought he should have. He settled next to her, again too close for my comfort, and blood boiled in my veins. He was always on the creepy side, but I never wanted to kick the shit out of him for it before.

 

“Are you one of Drew’s friends?” She squinted as she looked between us.

 

“We were in a few classes last year.” I shrugged before standing. “And we were just on our way to breakfast, so if you’ll excuse us.” I grabbed her hand and yanked her off the bench harder than I’d meant to. Something inside me snapped and needed to get her away from this asshole as soon as possible.

 

Maybe I didn’t accept being just friends with Sara as much as I let on. Maybe I hated that I had no claim or right to tell Chase or guys like him who approached her to back off. Maybe I wanted her to be mine—now. Not maybe at some unsure point in the unforeseeable future.

 

“Are you all right?” Sara stilled and yanked back.

 

“Fine,” I clipped, still irritated as fuck, and doing a shit job of hiding it. Her brows pinched in confusion, and I didn’t blame her. Sometimes, I wondered what the hell was wrong with me, too.

 

We were supposed to be only friends, but I hadn’t so much as glanced in another woman’s direction since Sara stumbled into the lab that night. I’d go to the bar with the guys and the girls either wouldn’t be pretty enough or smart enough or something else enough. The problem, or my problem was, they weren’t Sara enough.

 

Silence fell over us as we made our way to the diner on campus. It was only when I reached for the door that I realized I still held her hand in mine. I’d never dropped it, and she never pulled away. Now I was even more pissed at myself for wanting to make that simple gesture mean something between us.

 

The waitress brought our menus over right after we were seated. The usual playfulness between us wasn’t there. The air that surrounded us was thick and uncomfortable. Shaking off what happened with Chase was harder than it should’ve been. He only shook her hand … and leered at her. I raked my hand through my hair as the thought pissed me off all over again. What would I do if a guy tried more than that? I’d end up in jail if I didn’t reel myself in.

 

“Why do you waste your time, Drew?” Sara’s voice was small.

 

I lifted my head to meet her pained stare. Her chocolate brown eyes bore into mine, half questioning, half exposed. I’d never seen her this vulnerable before.

 


“Waste my time?”


“You could spend time with anyone.Be with anyone … without issues and a ton of baggage. Someone your age. Someone who could keep up with you.” She put her head down and laughed.


“But that someone wouldn’t be you.” Her eyes brightened right before they squeezed shut. I still wouldn’t push, but I was done lying to myself or her.


“Drew, you’re a good guy. I’m holding you back, I can tell. I love hanging out with you, but I can’t ask you—”’


“You never asked me to do anything. I love hanging out with you, too. I don’t know who convinced you that you were some kind of unwanted burden, but you’re not. Never. So, you’re not blowing me off, Caldwell. Nice try.” I let my lips curve up, hoping to draw out a smile.


“You wanted to punch Chase, didn’t you?” The corners of her mouth twitched.


“Maybe.” I shrugged, pretending to peruse the menu I’d seen a hundred times.


She let out a heavy sigh as she opened the menu. “You’re a foolish man, Kostas.”


Maybe I was a fool, but she was worth it. Sooner or later, I’d get her to believe that.

 

Stephanie Rose grew up loving words and making up stories. Being able to share them with readers is her dream come true. This lifelong Bronx girl loves Starbucks, wine and 80s rock. Her voice often gets mistaken for a Mob Wives trailer. 

She married her prom date and has a LEGO obsessed son. She believes there is nothing sexier than a good guy who loves with all his heart and has made it her mission to bring as many as she can to the page.

What was I doing with Dev? Why couldn’t I keep my hands off him?

Because he’s turned you into a nymphomaniac who only craves his cock.

I shook the thought from my head as the aroma of freshly brewed coffee hit my senses.

Time to get moving.

I quickly showered and dressed in a light summer maxi dress before heading to the kitchen.

As I passed through the archway, I noticed Dev scanning a group of documents on the counter with a frown on his face. He always had that look when he was trying to solve some puzzle.

He wore a fitted T-shirt and loose cotton pants, a strikingly relaxed contrast to his always put-together look. When he dressed like this, every contour of his body was visible.

The very body I shouldn’t have played with earlier.

There was no way I was going to be able to resist him. I’d just have to set the boundaries before anything happened.

Who was I kidding? I was fucked.

I had to tell him before we went any further. Then I’d know if there was a solid chance to fix our relationship.

“What are you looking at?”

He lifted his gaze and gave me his “better start talking now” glare that usually scared anyone he had on the stand. Too bad it didn’t have any effect on me.

“Were you going to tell me?”

“Tell you what?”

“And why is Representative Jones calling you?”

I walked up behind him, noticing the phone with five missed calls and the Senate candidacy papers I’d forgotten to put away, and cringed.

“This isn’t how I wanted to tell you. For the record, I haven’t filed anything with the Secretary of the Senate. And it wasn’t until after Jacinta’s last visit that I decided to officially throw my hat into the ring and challenge Sanders.”

“So, what you’re telling me is that my sister knew you were considering a bid for US Senate and I didn’t.”

I cocked a hand on my hip. “First of all, we’ve barely been in the same room for the last few months, much less had time to discuss my plans for the future. And second, Jaci is my best friend.”

“I’m your husband.” He towered over me. “What about Tracy Jones?”

“She’s my adviser. She has experience with situations like mine.”

Tracy used the notoriety she’d gained after she represented a well-known movie star in a murder trial to run for the US House of Representatives. She’d become famous more for her looks and attitude than the case itself. She was the perfect person to navigate me through the waters I was about to enter.

“Don’t make Jacinta’s or Mrs. Jones’s political aspirations yours.”

“Listen up, buster.” I poked a finger into his chest. “You do not get to tell me what I do with my career. Did you consult me when you put your hat into the ring for the judgeship? You made a unilateral decision that kept me in the shadows.”

“I’ll admit it was one of my stupider decisions. But this is different. You’re about to jump in with the big dogs. You’re too nice. They’ll eat you alive.”

“Have you seen the people I represent? Most of them are politicians. I’ve handled the worst of them. Give me some credit.” I fixed him with an annoyed glare. “Men have such double standards.”

“Sami.”

“Don’t Sami me. I haven’t even had a cup of coffee yet, and you’re on my ass.”

I pushed past Dev and grabbed the French press, pouring myself a giant mug of coffee.

After adding the perfect amount of sugar and milk, I brought the cup to my lips and chugged.

Yes, finally my morning sustenance. The bittersweet concoction ignited my cylinders and prepared me for the man growling at me.

I set the empty coffee cup on the counter.

“Now that I can function, I’ll listen to your tantrum about my potential bid for US Senate.”

“If you run, is the ticket going to say Kumar or Camden?”

I turned with a frown. “Of all the things to worry about, you’re concerned about my name.”

“Answer the question.”

I lifted my chin. “Aren’t there enough Senator Camdens in the world? Hell, Jacinta is positioning herself to run in Texas.”

He stepped in front of me and pressed me back against the quartz island with the front of his hard, sculpted body.

The contact made my nipples harden, and there was no way to hide my reaction since I wasn’t wearing a bra with the stupid dress I’d put on.

“What I want to know is are you running as the married Mrs. Camden or the single, celebrity attorney Ms. Kumar?”

His erection molded itself into my stomach and all I could do was lick my lips.

“I want to know if I’m going to be a senator’s husband or in the shadows.”

I scowled as my arousal cooled. “Like you did to me?”

“Yes, like the asshole I was and did to you.”

♡Today’s love doesn’t always have to look like yesterday’s love ♡

Falling in love with your best friend is so cliché and old as time.
I’m just a southern girl in New York.
I never imagined I’d meet my soulmate.

And not a big deal like Noah Fierro. He’s the classic type A personality with a side order of brusqueness. Far too handsome and a magnetism I was swept up in.

And … we’re both into guys.

Curve ball, right? Tell me about it. I was crushed.
But he’s my person. My bestie.

And I need to ditch my enormous crush for good.

What if a friendship is so consuming it supersedes conventionality?
We have love. But will my heart be broken?

I’m Sena Black and is he … Straight-for-You // Friends-to-Lovers.

I bow to no man.



The words are tattooed on my skin, just as they’re branded on my heart.



But I never planned for Sergeant Lincoln Asher, a man as deceptive as he is
cold. His dominance sets my teeth on edge . . . and my body on fire. He won’t
stop until I’m his, but I’m not his to take.



My secrets bind me—and blind me.



I live in the shadows of New Orleans. Hidden and protected in the underworld I
call home. I know who I am.



I vow never to kneel before a man…



Save one.



And he will be my downfall.

Excerpt
“Read me.”

“Excuse me?”

“My cards.” I lifted my gaze to her face. Shock resided in those hazel eyes of hers, as did distrust. She was right not to trust me—that was a fact. I cleared my throat. “Read my cards.”

“Absolutely not.”
Lifting a brow, I murmured, “Scared?”
“Of you?” Disbelief coated her tone like thick honey.
“You see anyone else standing here?” At her silence, I folded my arms over my chest. “Read my cards . . . unless maybe you are, just a little bit.”
Her teeth worked her bottom lip, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she broke the skin. “You don’t scare me.”
“Don’t I?” I tested her words, taking a step toward her and into her space. But she surprised me—for all the lip nibbling, she didn’t budge and she sure as hell didn’t retreat. Defiance radiated from every inch of her.
“No one scares me.”
Another lie, but I wouldn’t press her on it.
I only studied her, allowing my silence to bait her into giving in. Patience, man, have patience.
“Fine.” With a hard glare, she slipped the cards from their carton and shuffled them with sharp motions. “Two cards. Your past and your future.”
“What about my present?”
The shuffling slowed, then stalled completely. “It doesn’t matter. In a moment, this will be your past too.”
I wanted to tell her that she looked too damn young to be spouting out that sort of wisdom. But was she really that young? It was too dark to tell, and she didn’t give me the opportunity to give it another thought.
She cut the deck, wrists moving fluidly. Selected a card from the middle and held it up, allowing the sparse moonlight to reveal the image. I fought the urge to snag it from her grasp and look myself.
“Ruin.”
My chin jerked back. “Excuse me?”
“Ruin,” she reiterated, voice soft but unyielding, “it’s the Ten of Swords.”
“I have no idea what that means.”
Her teeth audibly clacked together. “I’m aware, sergeant. Ruin; it’s a card in the Minor Arcana.” She flicked her nail on the card, and then turned it toward me. In the slight shadows, all I saw was the color red and what looked to be a sword with a myriad of other, smaller swords piercing the largest one. “It represents a period of endless fighting, a struggle that you can’t win.”
This was a bad idea.
Maybe she was a fraud—in that moment, I hoped that to be true. I hoped that she’d lied to every single person who had ever sat at her table here in Jackson Square because I refused to believe that everything I had worked toward in the last thirty-six years had been for nothing.
My fingers sank into my dark hair, and I pulled at the strands fruitlessly.
Hazel eyes met mine. “With no hope, your past has led to your destruction.”
I opened my mouth to speak. Or maybe I only thought that I did.
There were no words—only blood. The blood I had spilled and the blood that I had given. Not for the first time in my life, I felt dirty, rotten all the way to my soul. And hopeless, like there was no end to the struggle and to the pain and to the goddamn detachment I forced upon myself so that I could do what I needed to do and not consider the consequences of my actions.
“Interested in your future?” she asked, already swiping another card from the deck.
No, I wanted to yell at her. If Ruin was my past, then it would only make sense that—
“Death.” She turned the card around to show me. “Your future is Death.”
And as I stood there woodenly, my fucking brain trying to wrap around the reality of my existence, she gathered her belongings and swept into the night.
Leaving me alone.
As I’d always been.

Beauty and the Beefcake

 

 

Title: Beauty and the Beefcake
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy

 Release Date: May 17, 2018

Blurb
There are two kinds of women in the world – those I can bang, and those
I can’t.

My teammate’s sister?

She’s a can’t.

I moved in with her to protect her from a nasty ex, not to be the next guy in
line.

She’s the brains.

I’m the brawn.

She’s the fruit.

I’m the sausage.

She talks too much.

I don’t talk at all, if I don’t have to.

Should be easy to resist her.

But every minute I spend with Felicity is another minute she gets under my
skin. She makes me feel like something more than a dumb puckhead with a big
Zamboni pony. And it’s getting harder to remember why I need to keep my hands
to myself. 

Beauty and the Beefcake is a vegan-friendly standalone romantic comedy
featuring a hockey player whose vocabulary is the only thing smaller than a
hockey puck, a book smart but aimless ventriloquist with too many voices in her
head, a dilapidated old house that may or may not be haunted, and no cheating
or cliffhangers.

I Should Have Been a Rock Star

I Should Have Been a Rock Star
by John Kaniecki
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
“What happens when Don ‘Hypo’ Colandri mysteriously disappears from
Edward’s University on his way to a Statics exam? Why his three
roommates lie outright claiming he was kidnapped by a Satanic cult,
all to get money and score with chicks. Don, however, has been
mysteriously transported into outer space where he becomes a pawn of
one Nellie Watt against the Time Lords in a cosmic game being run by
God. Unfortunately for Myron, Slick and Psycho, (Don’s three former
roommates) they have dived into a realm where fools tread. Hilda
Thethia, a practicing Satanist, learns of the ruse and quickly begins
to blackmail the trio. Sadly Myron, Slick and Psycho realize that the
followers of Satan are more wide spread than they could have ever
imagined and none are too happy at having the name of their Dark Lord
besmirched. Meanwhile poor Don is learning the ropes of outer space
in a very hard way. Every mystery he solves only brings more
questions. Will Nellie Watt succeed in her contest against the Time
Lords and go to the Twinkling of Twilights to press the Reset Button?
Will Myron, Slick and Psycho manage to escape from the miserable maze
they created? And most important of all, Why didn’t YOU become a
rock star?
John Kaniecki was born in Brooklyn, New York. Though having no memories of
life there, John is proud to be called a Native New Yorker. John was
raised in Pequanock Township, New Jersey. At age twenty John was
baptized and became a member of the Church of Christ. Presently John
resides in Montclair, NJ and lives with his wife of over twelve years
Sylvia. The happy couple attend the Church of Christ at Chancellor
Avenue in Newark, NJ. John is very active in outreach and teaching as
part of the leadership of the congregation.
