Author: Cary Hart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2018
Who will you be when no one is watching… when the
lights go down?
I don’t know who I am anymore. It’s been so
long since I’ve been allowed to think for myself. And now that I can, all I can
think about is him. My protector. His massive build which should frighten me
but makes me feel safe. And his intense eyes that linger on me when he thinks
I’m not looking. But why would he want me? I’m broken.
I vowed never to get close to anyone again. Do
the job, get paid and survive. That’s all. Then she’s thrown into my life,
needing a place to hide. She thinks she’s damaged, but she just needs someone
to show her how strong she really is. Damn if I don’t want to be that man. But
I’ve got a past of my own, and no good deed goes unpunished.

Shapiro –
She wraps
her arms around my neck and lets her body collapse against mine. Her front
sliding down. Her legs wrapping around my waist before she hits the floor.
 “I didn’t like you locking me in here.”
“I didn’t
like locking you in here either. I didn’t know what else to do. If you would
have left and something happened to you . . .”
“I wouldn’t
have left.”
I know
she’s drunk, but this conversation has sobered up fast.
“No.” She
nods slowly. A small grin creeps up on her face.
looking at me like this has me losing all resolve. It’s all I can do to keep
from slamming her against this wall, but she deserves better.
“Why don’t
we lock up and get you to bed.”
I reach to
pull her arms off and set her down, but she resists. For being drunk she sure
does have a lot of strength.
“Don’t put
me down. I’m dizzy.”

“Drunk on
you.” She reaches up to tap my nose.
Okay so
maybe drunk Penny is kind of cute.
“Is that a
smile, Frances.”
I can’t
help it. This girl, she makes me feel things I have never wanted to feel
before. So I smile.
“There it
is.” She reaches between us to trace my lips with her finger.
I’m sure in
her head she is being soft and sensual, but in real life, she keeps jabbing her
finger against my teeth.
“Time to
lock the door.”
I walk us
over and prop her up against the wall with one knee as I free a hand to lock
“Oh!” Her
eyes go wide. “That feels so good.”
does?” I ask as I stretch up to slide the lock into place then set the alarm.
“This.” She
puts all her weight onto my leg and grinds.
Fuck Me!
You’re killing me.” I glance down and see Penny’s eyes hooded and filled
with lust. “I think it’s time I take you to bed.”
Remember that movie? Oh, what was it?” She taps my temple. I guess to help her think. “You know that one where they
sing that song about fire balls or balls of fire.”
“No clue.”
I bounce
her up to shift her weight. Wrong
move. With all her grinding I’m hard as a rock.
“Oh yes!”
she shouts as she flings her head back.
I lose
balance, and she slams it against the wall. “Ouch!”
“You okay?”
I snake my
arm up the base of her neck and into her hair. Massaging her scalp.
She leans
into my touch. Closing her eyes for a brief second before they spring open.
“Take me to
bed or lose me forever.”
I know it’s
a movie quote, but damn, don’t I want those words to mean something. Standing
there with her body wrapped around mine I would give anything to push her up
against that wall and take—
Her mouth
crushing to mine interrupts my thoughts. My mind is telling me to pull away but
my body is screaming for me to stay.
Kissing her
back? Nothing good could come from it. My guard would drop, and she would
become even more vulnerable. I can’t do that.
Penny moans my name against my lips. Begging me to kiss her back the way she is
kissing me.
I can’t. I won’t.
I try to
keep repeating those words in my head.
“Fuck,” I

know what comes over me, in that brief moment, but the tension that had been
building since I met her became unbearable. I had to let go.

while our tongues intertwine I turn her around and pin her against the wall.
Her body
stiffens, and I freeze.
“No. It’s
totally me.” She breathes out an excuse. “I just . . . I don’t know. I guess I

“Let’s go
to bed.” I swing her legs around and hold her in my arms.
“Ohh!” She

I kissed a

“Yes, you are.”
I agree as we walk into the bedroom and I lay her down gently. The mattress
barely dipping. “Here, lift up.”
Ohhhhh,” she coos staring at me with her doe eyes.
I know what
she wants, but it can’t happen. The kiss was a mistake. Maybe if it happened
another time. After this was all over with it could be more, but right now. It
just can’t be.
Yanking the
covers down, I let her get adjusted before I pull them back up.

“Night.” I
turn to leave the bedroom to get as much distance between us as possible, but
Penny? She has other thoughts.
“You didn’t

“What are
you doing to me?” I moan, rubbing my face.
I swear
this girl is going to be the death of me.
“Don’t make

Closing the
distance, I reach for the blankets and pull them up as I go. Tucking them under
her chin. Stepping back, I admire her from a distance.
Distance is safe. It’s needed.
“You sure?”
I start
from the bottom and tuck the blankets under her like she’s a burrito. “Snug as
a big in a rug,” I whisper.
Her lips
pucker and I walk out.
Tonight is
definitely a moment to remember. I’m just hoping she forgets.

Dead set on keeping his personal vow, Rylan’s determined to handle Lars on his own, but Eris knows where this will end.

Errant Spark

Errant Spark
Elemental Trials Book 1
by Ronelle Antoinette
Genre: Fantasy Romance
How can you afford to risk it all for love when your life
is not your own?

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but In

Egalion’s Imperial court, you can’t tell one from the

other…especially when they change at the flip of a coin. Behind the

luxury and splendor lies a realm of treachery where cloak-and-dagger

political maneuvering threatens to destroy the peace of two thousand


Twenty-five-year-old Battlemage Jex Xander has a mouth that frequently
gets him into trouble, while in contrast, Enari Namelum speaks not at all.

When Jex becomes the target of a faceless curse-slinger, Enari, the girl he

has protected since the day they met, must now protect him. A string

of ritual human sacrifices coupled with Jex’s growing inability to

keep his feelings (and hands) to himself only serve to complicate

matters. Amidst the mounting chaos, passion and romance should be the

last thing on their minds, but life and the Goddess seem to have

other ideas.

In a world as enticing as it is perilous, love, danger, and magic will

collide, leaving lives irrevocably changed. The events of a single

summer stand to change the course of more than just the kingdom of

Egalion and the ones dismissed as pawns may yet prove to be the most

important players.

Errant Spark” is the hush before the storm, the last deep breath before

the plunge. The flint has been struck and it’s possible the whole

world might go up in flames…because love in the Imperial court is

as dangerous a thing as backroom politics and jealousy can be as much

a driving force as silver and gold.


Fantasy? Action? Romance? Yes! This romantic fantasy novel by Ronelle

Antoinette is a broad, epic, sweeping fantasy with more twists and

turns and ups and downs than a wild roller-coaster! The first

installment of the Elemental Trials series is one of those books that

really is so much more than what the blurb can convey. Described as

“surprisingly complex and visionary” by one reviewer, “Errant

Spark” will leave you mesmerized from the first page to the last.

Hailed by Amazing Stories Magazine’s Ricky L Brown as “a simple story

about interesting characters with just enough romance and magic to

make it work. […] Errant Spark is as complex as George RR Martin,

with a world that is well-suited for conniving and cavorting. Rest

assured, there is plenty of sex and violence, but not as raw and

stabby as the aforementioned works. It’s more like a big kid’s

version of a fairy tale.

Recommended for:
Mature teens and up
Fans of epic fantasy and romance
Those looking for characters they want to eat…
or take home and enjoy
Readers who can appreciate a gorgeous tapestry of

magic, myth,

and mayhem

Connoisseurs of fine love stories that complement the plot
and that ‘slow burn’
Lovers of surprises, twists-and-turns, and well-placed,
necessary supernatural elements
Anyone looking for sex, magic, love, fantasy, and a story
that will sweep you away
Those who don’t mind staying up all night so they can
turn that final page

Scandal will shake foundations.

A night of careless passion leaves Battlemage Jex Xander and Adept

Enari Alycon in a precarious position. Long-time lovers they might

be, but the Imperial ambassador and the daughter of Egalion’s High

Mage have rather public roles in the court—whether they wish it or

not—and scandal couldn’t come at a worse time.

Treachery will tip balances.

When a hostile kingdom reluctantly agrees to parley, the fate of

two-thousand years of peace is on the line. In the midst of

negotiations, Enari becomes the target of one of the Greater

Maelstrom. She and Jex must race against time to save her life and

that of her unborn child. What happens when an earth-shattering

secret, a demon bent on destruction, and a kingdom teetering on the

brink of war collide is anyone’s guess.

Choices will have consequences.

The decisions of a few will determine the fate of many, and who or what

will remain standing in the end is still uncertain. Hearts and lives

are on the cusp of irrevocable change…and not necessarily for the


And secrets? Those will change everything.

Ronelle Antoinette lives in western Colorado with her husband, two cats, and

one dog-who-believes-he’s-a-person. While she is a mother of none,

she’s an auntie to what should qualify as a small army. She is an

admitted caffeine addict, chocoholic, and hopeless romantic who has

carried on a passionate affair with the genre of fantasy since she

was old enough to read ‘chapter books’.

Ronelle dabbled in creative writing for many years before making it a career.

(She even considered it as a major in college, though she ended up

getting a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology.) She published
