Qyra plus Quarantine equals heaping helpings of nothing to do, nowhere to go, and zero dating life — until her long-lost college crush Josh shows up in the checkout lane of her hometown grocery store. When he learns she just opened her dream catering business, the hot techno whiz-slash-fitness guru offers to help her fix her nightmare of a website. Menus and meat thermometers aren’t the only things popping up when they both test negative for the nasty pandemic virus and their virtual dating turns IRL. Sizzling sex with a bulked up boytoy is great but keeping her emotions socially distanced is harder than she thought it would be. Josh could be the real deal, but between his thoughtless “flabby” jabs and his inevitable discovery of her private weight loss journey, will their dinner for two become a dine-and-dash?

Smack dab in the middle of aisle four, my shoes pound out the “I’m Losing My Friggen Patience Blues” as two possibly drunk twenty-somethings argue over condiments. The ladies don’t budge despite the insistent tap tap tap of my right sneaker. Their face masks are tucked beneath their chins, their neon pink lips pouting as they bicker about the spiciness of steak sauce. I belt out a throaty, hella unfeminine cough. They scramble to push their glitter-adorned masks back over their noses. One of them hurls a square brown bottle at their cart. Her aim is terrible, and the bottle banks off the side before cracking open on the floor. Sticky brown sauce spews over their Pepto-pink toenails and daisy white designer sandals. Thankfully, my own floral romper and white shoes stay pristine, because I am far more than the required six feet away. My glitterless, jalapeño print face mask muffles my laughter as the Lipstick Twins wave manicured fingerbirds in my direction. I try to mute my Bluetooth so my Mom can’t hear me cackle, but my finger gets caught in the mask’s elastic loop. “What’s so funny?” I relay the drama of the Sauced & Saucy as I re-lasso my ear. “Actually, it’s not funny, because now I can’t get to the damn ketchup. I wanted to make French fries tonight. How the hell am I supposed to eat fries without ketchup?” “You don’t need fries, dear. Too many carbs.” “The potatoes are already in my cart. I’ll just scallop them or something. What-fucking-ever.” I turn the corner and tip two boxes of the store-advertised cake mixes into my cart. “If you’re offended by the potatoes, you’d be super pissed at the Duncan Hines that just fell into my basket.” She tut-tuts in my ear. “Potatoes and pre-fabricated cake mix? You’re PMSing like a 13-year-old.” When I don’t answer, she placates. “Okay, fine, be a cranky, carb-y bitch. I still love you. Don’t forget the frosting!” She forgets who she’s talking to. “This carb-y bitch will at least be making the frosting from scratch. I need to keep something keto.” Read: high-fat, low-carb. Not like it matters at this point — I’m in the throes of my once-monthly, decidedly non-keto week. But I do make killer frosting. The left rear wheel of my cart turns sideways and skids before I kick it and plow past a woman with three small, unmasked children in tow. One lone, N95 masked employee wearing goggles wanders aimlessly, armed with a can of Lysol and a pack of bleach wipes. I point him up aisle four and shake my head. “Watch it, Qyra. You don’t want your Quarantine Fifteen turning into the Dirty Thirty. I don’t even know why they’re calling this a ‘quarantine.’ It’s technically incorrect –” “Who are you to judge superfluous use of the letter Q?” She harrumphs. My mother was only sixteen when I popped out. In her infinite teenage wisdom, she tried to name me “Bacon,” not only because she craved it her entire pregnancy, but because her older sister (my future Aunt Debbie) had recently introduced her to the original Footloose… and of course, the hunky lead actor. She was intent on the name, until Great Grandma Delaney, aka G-Grams, put her foot down, threatening to disown her rather than help raise a great grandbaby named after a salty pork strip. My mother relented, out of both respect and fear of being orphaned. She promised my first name would be that of the Bacon actor’s wife, Kyra. G-Grams gave her blessing. Until she saw the birth certificate application on Mom’s hospital tray. Along with the funky first name spelling, Mom had listed Bacon as my middle name. From what I understand, G-Grams pork-shamed her in front of two nurses and an orderly before ripping up the paperwork. I come from a long line of feisty.

Flight by Montana Fyre

Title: Flight
Series: Forest Falls #2
Author: Montana Fyre
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 9, 2020


Men were the furthest thing from my mind when I arrived in Forest Falls. In my experience all they had to offer was pain, and I had enough of that in my past, I didn’t want it in my new life as well.
But when I met my new roommate, Braxton, all my carefully laid plans went out the window, and I found myself falling hard for the resident bad boy.
When the horrors of my past collide with the life I’m trying to build, can I trust Braxton with my heart and the secrets I hold close to it? 

Any illusions of Happily Ever After died the same night my high school sweetheart took her last breath. I didn’t deserve a second chance at that kind of happiness, and ever since I had lived for my three favourite things.
Hockey. Women. Alcohol.
At least until I met my Possum. Ariah took my breath away from the moment she stepped out of Charlotte’s car, and straight into my heart.
But Ariah has horrors in her past that I knew I couldn’t comprehend.
Can I be the guy she deserves? Or will I lose her just like I’ve lost everyone else I loved?



Free in Kindle Unlimited


“Keep looking at me like that, Possum, and neither of us are going to make an appearance at this party,” Braxton growled as he took in the short black dress I was wearing, until his eyes fell on the deep neckline that had my full tits looking way better than they would have normally looked. “You need to change. You can’t wear that fucking dress around me.” 
I giggled and positioned my lips into a pout. “Why not?” 
Braxton stepped close to me, his head dipping to whisper into my ear. “Because I’ve never wanted to tear an item of clothing from someone’s body as badly as I do right now. And I’m trying to take things slow to show you I can put in the work.”

Floored by Karla Sorensen

Title: Floored
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: December 9, 2020
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

If you’ve ever had a steamy one-night stand with a British football player and then find yourself pregnant with his baby, you know how Lia Ward feels.

To be fair, Lia didn’t know who Jude McAllister was when they met.

Studying abroad for her master’s program, all she knows is that she’s a little lonely and he’s very charming, even as they have an epically sexy argument about which type of football is superior.

In Jude’s mind, shagging the feisty American girl is exactly what he needs. He’s been fighting the clock of his long-standing football career and the younger players primed to take his position. Proving that he can feel like his old self again—something he’s been trying to do with everyone in his life—should be easier after blowing off steam with Lia.

But oh baby, when a plus sign pops up on Lia’s pregnancy test, that ‘one night’ becomes a whole lot more.

Now Lia and Jude have to navigate their impossible-to-ignore chemistry, and prepare for the parenting game, something neither of them know how to play.

“All the English countryside stars for this awesomeness. It’s getting one of my rare 6 stars… I’ve read over 400 books this year and have only given 8 x 6 stars so that tells you just how much I loved this book!!” – Claypot Reads
“Karla Sorensen nailed the angsty and steamy feels once again in Floored. This unique sports romance was full of intense emotions and all consuming romance goodness. She never fails to bring out the best and the worst in me with her brilliant writing.” (PP’s Bookshelf)
“Karla Sorensen delivers on all the things I love the best: the chemistry, the banter, the sweet steady burn that holds my heart in thrall and keeps my greedy little reader heart hungry for more. Floored delivered on all those things and more!” (Jennifer, Goodreads Review)

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

Too bad life can’t be that easy.

J.P. Harper never expected to find himself down on his luck.

After all, he’s always been at the top of his game, saving struggling businesses and being paid well to do it.

Can J.P. trust Violet and set aside that night to work together…or will their sparks ignite another disaster?

The Pleasure House by Kitty Thomas

The Pleasure House
Kitty Thomas
Publication date: December 2nd 2020
Genres: Adult, Dark Romance, Romance

The Pleasure House is Kitty Thomas’s COMPLETE 5 book pleasure house series. (A $25 value!), All five books from the pleasure house series are included: Guilty Pleasures, Broken Dolls, Surrender, Pretty Lies, and Twisted Fates.

“Kitty Thomas is a one-click author for me!” -Anna Zaires, NYT Bestselling author of Twist Me

Guilty Pleasures:

She was a bored housewife until she was taken and trained for the pleasure of the highest bidder.

Vivian Delaney leads a life of privilege, but behind closed doors she feels isolated and trapped in a gilded cage. Unable to achieve sexual pleasure with her husband, she finds herself in the capable hands of Anton, a massage therapist intent on awakening her to her full sexual potential. By any means necessary.

Broken Dolls:

Mina Calloway always finds herself in the hands of the wrong master: Gentle at first, then brutally sadistic and abusive. She no longer believes it’s possible to find a man who will be gentle with her. After seeing a kink-friendly therapist for months, the doctor makes her an illicit offer she isn’t yet smart enough to refuse: “Let me find you a good master.”

Brian Sloan is a borderline sociopath with a dark and brutal past. Only taking his sadistic urges out on the women at a submissive training house allows him to sleep through the night. When Brian sees Mina, she should be ripe for the picking, but her damage is too similar to his own. Can he fight past his demons to protect the one person he considers worth saving?


Julie wants Gabe Griffin like fish want water, but what she wants is sweet domestic bliss and a white picket fence. What Gabe wants is to put a collar around Julie’s throat and train her in the finer points of being his slave.

At first too innocent, then too broken, can Julie ever surrender to the man intent on claiming her?

Pretty Lies:

“She told pretty lies to the wrong man and now she must give herself to him to save her sister’s life”

As a phone sex operator, Annette Waincott knows how to tease to get what she wants. That is, until she teases the wrong man at a club, claiming kinky fantasies she doesn’t really have. It must have been too much vodka and his tantalizing Russian accent. Too bad he believes her.

When the Russian accidentally kidnaps her twin sister as part of an ill-fated sex game, things quickly get real. In a desperate bid to free her twin, Annette offers herself to him in trade. He both terrifies and excites her, but she knows she can never trust him. The things he wants will push her to her limits and beyond. And this time, she can’t tell pretty lies and run away.

Twisted Fates:

When Lindsay Smith brought her to the house, it was to train and sell her. They both knew it. She’d agreed to this arrangement. She wanted to belong to someone. But Lindsay wanted her to be his.

Three days into her stay at the pleasure house, Shannon Foster’s life is forever destroyed by a sociopathic monster. Lindsay saved her life that day, but the scars bind her to the house without a future.

Now, eight years later, Lindsay saves her once again, only this time he’s playing for keeps.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play


Brian had scarred her flesh. Lindsay could scar her soul. She couldn’t let him. She couldn’t let herself… want him. Not again. She’d had the stupidest crush on him when she’d first come to his office.

He backed her up against the leather table. Nowhere to run. Her heart pounded so hard in her chest she could hear it. She couldn’t think straight. She hated him. No… he was scaring her. No… God, why did he smell so fucking good? And the lack of a shirt… it was doing things to her.

He usually wore a suit. Business attire. Professional Shrink Wear. It covered up the physique he’d obviously worked hard for. She’d seen him in the gym on days off, or late in the evenings. Brian had the reputation for being the fitness buff, but Lindsay put in the time quietly without drawing much attention.

As recently as that morning, the doctor had just “been there”. Someone she despised, but otherwise nothing special. She hadn’t seen him this way since before the house. Shannon wanted to keep the more confusing hatred. This… yearning was more than she could stand.

“Why can’t you do this with me?” he asked with that professional practiced interest he was so skilled at.

“Because I fucking hate you.”

His hand moved to the back of her neck, threading through her hair, cradling her. He pulled her to him, his mouth covering hers in a kiss far more gentle than the danger in his eyes.

Against every normal instinct, she sighed and sort of… melted… against him. She missed this, so much. It had been so long since she’d been kissed like this—by anyone. It had been long before the house even. The last man who’d kissed her this way had been her last master. And he’d tossed her aside without a thought in the end.

You couldn’t trust a kiss like this. It was a lie to lower your defenses. A trap. It could never mean all the things it promised. But she wanted to believe it. She wanted to fall into it and pretend and believe just for a little while. Would that be so wrong?

Shannon pulled away from him, and then, as if to put extra punctuation on it, she put her hands on his chest and pushed him away. “This isn’t real. I don’t want your pity.”

He gripped her chin and forced her to look up at him. He was so tall. Had he always been this tall?

“Hear me. I want you. So get this pity nonsense out of your head. I want you. I’ve always wanted you. From the first moment you walked into my office. Now disrobe and get on the table like I told you to.”
