It was hate at first sight.

Just not for Blue. He’d loved what he’d seen. Tall and thin with long blond hair and gorgeous blue eyes, Anna Hayes was absolutely beautiful.

She also wanted absolutely nothing to do with him.

As a professional hockey player, that was a rare thing for Blue Anderson. He was young, rich, good looking, and in the best shape of his life. He wouldn’t say he had to beat women off with a stick, but . . . maybe he had to brush them off with a broom. Still, bad puns aside, the truth was Blue didn’t have any trouble finding someone—or someones—to share his bed.

Except Anna.

Never beautiful Anna with the razor-sharp wit and seriously dirty mouth.

Despite his appreciation for her model good looks, Blue knew when to stay away. And his plan was to remain far far away from the woman who never failed to roast him within an inch of his life.

He wanted someone nice, not a woman who’d barbecue his balls off.

But then Blue did something stupid—something that felt incredible, but was also incredibly stupid.

He kissed prickly, gorgeous Anna Hayes.

And every one of his carefully laid plans went right out the window.

THE PRINCESS AND THE PROSPECT (Aces High MC – Charleston Book 3) by Christine Michelle




THE PRINCESS AND THE PROSPECT (Aces High MC – Charleston Book 3) by Christine Michelle

I was three weeks past my seventeenth birthday when I first saw him running like a dog, as prospects do, during a family club function. I knew he was far older than me since he’d served in the Army with my brother-in-law, Deck.
He was definitely too old for me in the eyes of everyone else.
I knew the rules, and I’d be breaking too many of them for this not to be trouble.
He was a prospect, making him off-limits.
I wasn’t even 18, making me off-limits.
I was also a club princess, daughter of the Vice President of the Aces High MC – Charleston Chapter. That, more than anything else, made me off-limits.
Still, I watched and waited for the moment when I could make myself unforgettable to him, because my heart had no limits, and it wanted Joker.

Prospecting for the MC was turning out to be a tougher gig than I had originally imagined. I wasn’t exactly known for taking blind orders well, or taking shit from anyone in my life, so undergoing prospect hazing was trying my last damn nerve. The never-ending line of patch-chasing females was sure to make the discomfort worth my wait. Then again, I wasn’t one to do easy conquests either. The shy cutie who had been staring at me all night from the corner seemed like just the challenge my worn down soul needed.
She was a challenge all right.
Nearly cost me everything in the end.
Now, I’m stuck with a liar, an old lady, and one crazy-ass impending shotgun wedding.

Loving Fox by Lynne Leslie


Title: Loving Fox

Author: Lynne Leslie

Series: Skullz Ink #5, Allie and Fox Duet #2

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Loving-Fox-Ebook Blurb

Two years ago I fell in love with a woman that wasn’t mine to fall in love with. With no other choice, I stood by watching as she lost everything, until all that was left was a shell of her former self. And I let her drag me down into the darkness with her. It’s hard to compete with a ghost, but I’m determined for her to see me as more than the friend I’ve been. So, I fight the only way I know how—down, dirty, and with the buzz of my tattoo needle. My name is Fox Beckett and this is how I won Allie’s love. Loving Fox is the conclusion of the Allie & Fox Duet.



Apple https://apple.co/2zfVJka




I stop us in the middle of the road at the first stop sign I come to. There’re no vehicles behind us so I take the time to pull the penny from the console and hand it to Allie.

She glances from the penny to me before holding her hand out. “What’s this for?”

“Our date.”

She looks down at the penny trying to figure out what it has to do with us going out on a date. When she looks back up at me, there’s confusion in her eyes.

“I take it you haven’t heard of a penny date?”

She shakes her head slowly, curiosity written on her face.

“Okay. So, I need you to choose a number between ten and twenty.”

Her Excitement builds when she realizes I actually have a plan for the penny.


“That will be how many times we flip the coin before we get to our destination. Heads, we’re gonna go right. Tails, we’re gonna go left. Are you ready?”

She bites her lip and nods her head.

“Flip the penny, Red.”

I’m not worried about running out of places to go. Kentucky is full of backroads. Sometimes they lead somewhere, sometimes they don’t. That’s going to be the fun of this date. We could end up on a date in someone’s front yard for all I know.

The first flip lands on heads and begins the journey to our destination. It continues that way for some time. She flips, calls out what it lands on, and I turn us in that direction. The tenth flip sets us on a backroad that carries on for a while, so we settle in and enjoy the scenery. Conversation consists of mundane things, the more important things waiting for when we stop for our picnic. I’m familiar with so much about Allie, but there’s still so much more I want to learn. You’d think I’d know the simpler things, such as her favorite food or color, but I don’t. Before she went to rehab, there wasn’t time for simple. Now that we have it, I want to take it all in and not miss out on anything. Even the small things most people wouldn’t consider important.

My eyes glance from the empty road to Allie when I feel her wiggling around. She stretches out across the seats, laying her head in my lap and sticking her feet out the window. I want to scold her for being reckless, not wearing a seat belt, but as I glance down at her and the huge smile she has on her face, I can’t open my mouth to utter the words. Instead, my foot eases off the gas to lower my speed, protecting her as much as I can while still allowing her that freedom, and my fingers tangle in her hair as a small smile flirts with my lips.

She hums to the radio, her feet dancing in the air, her fingers twirling the penny in between them. The last time I saw her this happy was before tragedy struck. She was happy on some of the days we shared, but she wasn’t happy. This level of happy—I’d give anything to see this level of happy on her face for the rest of my life.

My fingers move in and out of her hair, my eyes staying glued to the road in front of me, except for the occasional glances down at her when I can’t hold out any longer. Each time the truck stops, she flips her penny, smiles up at me and tells me head or tails. Gazing down at that smile while we sit at the stop sign, I think about the words she said to me before we left her house.

I trace the smile with my finger and repeat her words back to her. “That right there is what made it so difficult.”

“Made what so difficult?” she whispers.

Not falling in love with you,” I whisper back.

A tiny hiccup from her lips fills the cab of the truck while her eyes water. “Tails,” she whispers.

I trace her lips one last time, send a wink her way, and turn left.

I pull into the field that the last penny flip leads us to. Wildflowers dance in the breeze, birds flit in and out of trees, and I realize that we couldn’t have been led to a better spot for our date.

Allie raises up to see where we came to a stop at and lets out a small gasp of delight. She turns to me with a bright, toothy smile. “It’s beautiful, Fox.”

“It is,” I reply, gazing at her instead of the view outside.

Her tinkling laugh bounces around the cab. “C’mon,” she demands opening her door and climbing out.

I smile and shake my head, glad that she’s having fun, and follow her from the truck. Before I shut the door, I grab the blanket from behind the seat.

“What do you need help with?” Allie asks as I grab stuff from the back of the truck.

“Nothing. I can get it.”

She looks at the stuff in the bed and back to me with a raised brow. “That’s a lot of stuff.”

“It’s a cooler, a hot sack, and burlap sack with our utensils and shit.”

“Fine,” she huffs. She glances at the blanket tucked under my arm. “At least let me carry the blanket.”

I hand it over without fuss because I can tell she really wants to help. I grab the cooler in one hand and the hot sack and burlap bag in the other. Allie waits for me to lead the way. Glancing around, I try to find the best spot for us. There’re two weeping willows toward the middle and I realize I couldn’t have picked a better spot.

“There,” I nod toward the spot and lead the way.

“Perfect,” she whispers as she follows behind me.

Infatuation is a dangerous thing.

It devours you. Manipulates you. Owns you.

You can try to ignore it, try to move past it. But it’s more powerful than you. It won’t let go.

The day I first saw him, infatuation dug its claws into my soul. I couldn’t stop it. Everything faded. Except him.

In the end, he will have me.

Until then…I fight.

A tear slipped down my cheek. It was amazing how he could trigger these emotions in me merely by being close. He didn’t have to say a word. He didn’t have to touch me. He simply had to stand there and breathe.
I wiped at my cheek with the back of my hand. “Granite, please leave.” My voice was louder this time, sorrow slowly building my strength.
Nothing. Not a word.
I clutched my stomach tighter, heartache spreading everywhere, filling every crack, threatening to shatter me into a million pieces. I didn’t want to break in front of him. Not again. But I couldn’t stop it. This man managed to engrave himself on my soul, penetrating every part of my being, consuming me to a point where breaking was the only way to get a little relief from constantly trying to fight it. To fight him.
“Please,” I whispered as a tear rolled over my lips and I could taste my own sadness. “It hurts too much to be close to you.”
Pain built its way through every bone in my body until it finally erupted. I shot up.
“Please leave!” My voice slammed against the walls, anger echoing from my words. I turned around, ready to lash at him, only to find he wasn’t there. He was gone.

KISS ME NOT by Emma Hart


What do you do when you’re the reigning kissing booth champion but the only person you want to kiss is your best friend’s brother?

Kiss Me Not, an all-new hilarious brother’s best friend romance from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available now!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00027]

Let me make this clear right here, right now: I, Halley Dawson, do not care that Preston Wright is kissing other women.

Not a lick. Not at all. Nuh-uh-freakin’-uh.

I do care that he’s doing it six feet away from me behind a gaudy velvet curtain—making him my competition in this year’s kissing contest.

Why do I care, you ask? Because I’ve had an unfortunate crush on the insufferable idiot since I was sixteen years old, but I also know it’s never going to happen.

He’s the Creek Falls bachelor to die for, and I’m the Creek Falls racoon lady who puts peanut butter sandwiches out for them every night.

I’m not going to let him break my four-year-long reign—no matter how many times he breaks the rules and slides the curtain across to do the one thing he’s not allowed to:

Kiss me.

“I never answered your question.” “What question?” I darted my eyes to the side. “Just now. You asked me if I wanted to kiss you.” I did, didn’t I? Right. “Oh,” was all I said. Slowly, he moved his hand to my chin and gently lifted it. Still, I didn’t look at him, keeping my eyes firmly trained on the front of the tent, even though I was facing him. “Halley.” “Yeah?” “I want to kiss you.” My eyes darted to his. “I thought that’d do it.” His lips twitched, and he lowered his head until I had to fight the urge to close my eyes in anticipation of the kiss that was coming. I swallowed, my lips parting. Preston moved closer. And he kissed my cheek. I jerked out of whatever trance I’d just been in. “What the hell?” He jumped off the stage, grinning. “I guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to break the stalemate, won’t we?” “Oh, hell no!” I jumped off, stalking him to his side of the stage. “You just stood there in front of me and told me you want to kiss me, then kiss my cheek? The hell was that?” His eyebrows shot up, amusement flashing in his eyes. “If I didn’t know better, I’d think you wanted to kiss me, too.” “Irrelevant,” I shot back. “But you’re a special kind of asshole to tell a girl you wanna kiss her and then not do it.” I turned around, then stopped. “You know what? When I beat you tomorrow, you can kiss my ass.” “You’re way too mad about this.” “I’m not mad!” My voice raised a few octaves. “I couldn’t care if you want to kiss me or not. I most certainly don’t want to kiss you.” “Why are you shouting at me?” “I’m not—” I was shouting at him. “Whatever,” I said in a normal voice. “Make sure you take that money to the bank. Tell Tish I sent you.” I left him on his side of the curtain and went to get my purse. He could get fucked. After all that where I think I was so damn nervous I broke a sweat, he didn’t even kiss me. I wasn’t lying with what I said. He could kiss my ass. I’d even wear my good panties and bend over for him.

Savannah, Georgia
Present Day

Katie opened the door of the small corner Book Store Gone are the Pages the smell of old books and paper resonated throughout the store, and Katie smiled as she walked in. Scanning the small shop books as far back as she could see and all carefully stacked to the ceiling. She had dreamed of coming to this shop since she had first heard about it from her friend Jessica Littleton who had visited while on vacation in Savannah, Georgia. 

Katie had made a special trip to Savannah to go to this book store; she had finally gotten some leave and would make the best of it. She had quickly gotten through her last surgery before leave started so that she could make the drive and spend the week in the oldest hotel in Savannah. It wasn’t a long trip, but she wanted to have some time to be able to flip through some of the old books Jessica had told her about. The hotel she was staying at was dated back from before the war and stood still; she loved the south and everything that came with it. Katie often planned to make her life the old Savannah, but life and the Army had instead made plans for her. What made this trip even better was that The Lee House, rumored as haunted. 

Katie had looked forward to this trip for some time. She had recently gone through a bitter breakup after returning from her last deployment so two weeks away from the hospital and everyone she knew was just what she needed. She could be Katie and not Major Butler.
She was standing just inside the shop still mesmerized by the stacks of books both new as well as very old. Her excitement overwhelmed her thoughts; she wanted to pick up and open every one of the books. Her trance, finally broken when a voice behind a tall stack of old books sounded and an older woman of advanced years popped her head to the side of the pile. 

“May I help you, my child?” the woman asked as she scuffled along the wood floor from behind the stack. Her southern twang made Katie smile. 

“Oh no, ma’am I am just browsing. My friend Jessica visited here last year and told me if I made it to Savannah, this was the one place I needed to stop.”

“Well, my dear if you need anything, I will be over here in the rare book section give me a yell- I am Edith by the way, Edith Baxter. I own Gone with the Pages, so I have a keen knowledge of every single book in this shop.”
Katie’s eyes grew round as saucers when she heard Edith mention Rare Books. “May I see your rare books? Katie moved closer to the older woman; her excitement must have been apparent because Edith quickly agreed, and they headed off towards the back of the store near an old fireplace that still smelled of burnt wood and soot. 

“Right this way, my dear, and when you find something you like, there are chairs right near the fireplace that you can sit and browse your choices. I will be just over here doing some binding repairs.” 

Katie thanked Edith then headed right to the aisles of rare first edition books past the pile of books that appeared needed lots of love. These looked to be the pile of books Edith was pulling from to repair bindings. 

Running her fingers along the binding of the books all stacked neatly in their shelves Katie found one that interested her a rare first edition of Jane Austin’s Sense and Sensibility Katie’s heart skipped, and she felt she might pass out. I must be dreaming! Carefully she pulled the book out from between the other two rare books. She held the book in both her hands and gingerly walked to the stuffed chair by the fireplace and sat down. Her heart pounding as she opened the hardcover to reveal the beautiful yellowing of the pages and 
the smell of old paper enveloped her senses. 

Settling into the chair, she flipped through the brittle pages as carefully as she could. The condition of the book is pristine and would go great with my first edition of GWTW. I could spend hours, no days in this shop and never go through all these books. Jess was right; this is a gold mine of book finds. I could die right now and would die with a smile. 

Katie continued to thumb through the pages when the sound of an old coo-coo clock sounded. Looking down at her watch, she realized it was getting close to closing time. She had noticed on the glass on the front door that closing time at five o’clock, and it was five now. 
Katie got up, approached a small counter in the middle of the store where Edith was still working on the binding of some of the books. Placing the book on the table, “I would like to get this one ma’am how much is it?”

Edith looked up from her work and picked up the book. “Oh, this is one of my favorites, my dear. Are you a lover of romance books?”

“Oh yes, ma’am. But I do love all the classics, and when I saw this one, it spoke to me.”

“Well then my dear, you must see more of our collection. I have many many rare books. This one, for you dear, I will make you a deal. If you promise to come back tomorrow and let me show you more of my collection, you may have the book for two-hundred dollars.”

Katie’s eyes grew round, and the shriek she had been holding in since she had walked through the glass door finally overwhelmed her, and she let out a howl of excitement. 

“Its a deal. I will be here first thing in the morning.” 

“Perfect, I will have some of my better finds ready for you to gander through.” Edith wrapped the book in brown paper and placed it in a bag for Katie to carry back to her room. 

Grabbing the bag, Katie couldn’t help but be excited, but as she opened the door to leave her stomach growled and told her it was time to eat. As she walked out, she gave Edith a wave and stepped out into the fresh Savannah evening air. It was April in Savannah.

When a Stranger Comes…

When a Stranger Comes…
by Karen S. Bell
Genre: Psychological Thriller
2018 Readers’ Favorite Bronze Medal Winner!
“RIVETING”–Kirkus Reviews
What price would you pay for success?
A lightning bolt out-of the blue, on an otherwise sunny afternoon, transports author Alexa Wainwright to an alternate universe where the characters from her novels are given the breadth of life. Having just made a vow that she would do whatever it took to once again achieve the international acclaim of her debut novel, Alexa doesn’t realize how ominously that vow would be tested. In this altered reality, she’s introduced to media mogul King Blakemore who offers her an extremely lucrative book contract with guarantees that her work will become a best-selling blockbuster. Given his appearance, odd mannerisms, and aura of evil Alexa wonders if King Blakemore might be the Devil himself.
At first, she shrugs off her doubts about this peculiar publisher and very lucrative book deal offer because the temptation of riches and refound fame is too strong. Suddenly, the contract’s been signed. Now what can she do? Alexa realizes she’s trapped in an underworld of evil from which she desperately wants to escape. Her iron-clad book contract changes its wording whenever she thinks of a loophole and King always seems one step ahead of her. Desperate to get her life back, she devises schemes to untether herself from this hellish existence to no avail. She laments the old adage, Be careful what you wish for.
Buy this book if you’re a reader who loves a page-turning, heart-stopping, psychological thriller with some magical realism thrown in.
I get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind. Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It’s a mystery this business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.
