Author: Stacy Gail
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 18, 2020
Cover Design: Stacy Gail

Baby steps…
Mads Daniels may have landed at House Of Payne, but she sure as hell doesn’t want to be there. Her tattooist father started out with Payne, and his tales of the boss stealing artists’ work freaks her out in a big way. If Payne ever attempts to steal her art, she’ll have no choice but to unveil him as a fraud. And that could bring down House of Payne itself.

Step by step…
Sage McCormick never had a stable home until he joined House of Payne. It’s such a sweet gig he’s even willing to get involved in events like its annual charity auction. Everything is just about perfect, except for the newest recruit, Mads. She refuses to fit in, and he’s determined to find out why. Getting her sexy ass involved in the auction is only the first step in getting close to her… in more ways than one.

Leap of faith
The cocky charm Sage exudes like a pheromone bowls Mads over straight into his bed. But as Sage tries to coax her into thinking of the House as her new home, she realizes she has a decision to make—listen to the poison her father spews, or put her faith in the man she loves.

***This standalone contemporary romance contains lots of cursing from both the hero and heroine, multiple sex scenes, and a protective Alpha male who will use any trick in the book to get his chosen woman out of her shell. No cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed, along with a satisfying epilogue. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen***

“Speaking of portable,” she added, turning to hand him his promised cookies, “lemon bars and red velvet crinkles. You’re going to have to hit the gym hard to work these off.”

“You think I have something to worry about?” A smile played around his lips as he set the cookies aside and grabbed her hands. Then he pressed them, palms flat, against his stomach and slowly moved them over the taut, clearly ridged muscles of what had to be a mouth-watering six-pack. “See? I wasn’t lying. I do work out to make sure my sweet tooth doesn’t get the better of me.”

She had to take a second to make sure she wouldn’t drool when she spoke. “So it would seem.”

“So? Think I should worry about getting… soft?”

“Perish the thought.” There went her heart again, tripping over itself. Who knew that another human being could cause a freaking heart condition? “I doubt I’ve ever felt anything more perfect than you. I think I’m impressed.”

His hands left hers to pull her by the hips up against him. “You think? You mean you’re not convinced?”

“It takes a lot to impress me.” Her skin lit on fire wherever they touched, and all at once the only thing she could think about was getting more of that fire and burning herself alive with it. “You’re going to have to show me more than this. A lot more.”

“And to think I believed you were skittish,” he marveled, lowering his head. “Guess I’ve still got a lot to learn about you.”

“I’m sure you’ll find I’m a very good teacher.” 

“What I’m finding is that you like to talk when you should be kissing the hell out of me.”

“Ah.” She rolled up on her tiptoes, reveling in the friction between their bodies. “I should probably get on that.”

“Woman, I won’t be happy until you get on me.” He was still smiling when his mouth claimed hers and made her world explode.

A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

One man isn’t enough for me. I want them both.

The tension between Colton and Sawyer plays out in their body language. In the way they pass the salt, how they avoid each other’s gazes, that they only speak directly to me and not to each other. 
“You were amazing today,” Sawyer says. 
I smile around a mouthful of fluffy mashed potatoes. “I was just doing my job.” 
“It wasn’t your job,” Colton says, his hair still damp and spiky from the shower. “But it sounds like you’d be great at it.” 
“I wish it could be my job.” I spear a piece of carrot onto my fork, even though my stomach is plenty full. Everything is so damn good; I cannot stop eating. “I guess it could be, after college. God, when I think about going back to school, I just want to crawl under the covers and go to sleep.” 
“Maybe you shouldn’t,” Sawyer says. “Go back, I mean.” 
The thought of never having to sit through another boring lecture or write another research paper sounds like heaven. “My dad would kill me if I dropped out.” 
“Fuck him,” Sawyer says. “It’s your life. He doesn’t get to tell you how to live it.” Though he’s looking at me, I have a feeling the attitude behind the statement was intended for someone else. 
Colton sets his fork down with a clink. “I’m gonna try to catch some sleep. I’ll have to head back out to plow in a few hours.” 
I glance between these beautiful, stubborn men. Both irresistible in their own way. I don’t know why they’re fighting, but I’m happy to take the issue inside me, help them turn their frustration into something beneficial for all of us. 
“Maybe I can help you get to sleep a little faster,” I say. 
Heat and understanding flare in Colton’s gaze. “I wouldn’t turn down help from you.” 
I look to Sawyer, who frowns at his plate. 
“You guys go on,” he says. “I’ll take care of the dishes.” 
I take his hand. “We can do that later. I want to do something for you now.” 
Sawyer glances at Colton. They clearly aren’t each other’s biggest fans right now, but maybe I can fix that. Or at least put them on the path toward fixing it themselves. 
“It’s Christmas eve,” I remind Sawyer. “None of us should have to be alone.” 
Sawyer twines his fingers through mine. It’s not that I’m opposed to having sex with one man at a time. I just get the feeling that leaving Sawyer alone right now would only drive them further apart. I don’t know what’s going to happen after Christmas, but I know that I want to help them, and have them, and be held by them, for as long as I’m able to. 
I follow Colton to the master bedroom, with Sawyer on my heels. Sawyer’s hands slide up the back of my shirt as soon as we enter. 
“Lift your arms,” he says, and I do. 
He pulls my sweater off, then unhooks my bra. Colton’s mouth curves at the sight of my bare breasts and Sawyer’s hands cupping them. He reaches out to pinch my nipples gently, kissing my lips as Sawyer nips at my neck. 
“Put her on the bed,” Colton says. 
Sawyer walks me over to the mattress. Apparently, the bedroom is the one place where they’re happy to defer to each other, in the name of making me feel good. 
I lie down on my back, gazing excitedly up at my men. Well, not my men, I remind myself. Though the more time I spend on the receiving end of their mutual gaze, the harder it is to imagine being looked at by anyone else. 
Sawyer takes his shirt off and lies down beside me. Colton helps me out of my jeans and underwear. I’m completely naked between them. Naked and exposed and eager to be devoured. Sawyer kisses my breasts, swirling and flicking his tongue over my nipples. 
I whimper as Colton’s hands glide across my stomach and down my thighs before coming to rest between them. He squeezes my pussy gently, making me moan. 
“What do you need, little sister?” Sawyer rasps. 
“I need both of you inside me,” I tell him. “But first, I need to come.” 
Sawyer grins like a man who knows exactly what he’s good at. They position me on my side so that Sawyer can reach around to stroke my clit. I feel his erection against my ass, through his pants, and it makes my clit pulse to know so clearly that I’m the reason he’s hard. Colton’s erection is obscenely obvious in his gray sweatpants. I reach for his cock, running my hand up and down the shaft. 
Colton groans softly. I wedge my hand beneath his waistband, gasping as I realize he’s not wearing underwear. The skin of his cock is soft—a stark contrast to his impossible hardness. He works his sweatpants down his thighs, freeing his gorgeous dick for me to play with. He kisses my mouth, as Sawyer plants kisses all over my neck and shoulders. 
I stroke Colton’s shaft. It’s so thick I can barely get my hand around it, and the thought of him putting it inside me makes my clit throb against Sawyer’s fingers. 
“She’s so fucking wet,” Sawyer growls. “You’ve gotta feel her.” 
I can’t help but smile. Just a few minutes ago, they were barely speaking. Now they’re like kids bonding over their favorite toy. Sawyer lifts my leg so Colton can reach my pussy. His fingers glide between my lips. 
“Jesus.” He growls the word. I watch him taste his fingers, closing his eyes to savor me. He reaches back down to rub my clit. “I want you to come for us, sweetheart. Get that pussy nice and ready.” 
Sawyer’s hands vanish for a few seconds as Colton strokes me. Then I hear the purr of a zipper. The heat and stiffness of Sawyer’s bare cock against my ass is like a switch, turning my arousal up to high. He angles his length between my legs but doesn’t push inside me. Rather, he glides his cock along my folds, like a preview. 
Here’s what’s coming for you, little sister…

“So, what’s it gonna be, Prim? You gonna let me take you out?” I step closer to her, leaving only a few inches between us. With those heels, we’re almost the same height, and it takes a lot of self-control not to just grab her waist and pull her into me. Leaning just a bit closer, I let my breath fan over her ear, watching as she shivers, before whispering, “Or we don’t have to go out at all…” 
The gasp she lets out goes straight to my fuckin’ balls. When I lean back, her mouth is open in a little ‘o’, and I can’t help but picture those red lips wrapped around my cock. I don’t know why, but getting her on her knees in the fancy outfit she’s wearing… shit.
I know I come off as an asshole, but I really wouldn’t normally speak to a woman this way. There’s something about her that’s just so… enticing. I really can’t help myself. 
She’s breathing heavily and staring at my dick again. I was already painfully hard, but the way she’s examining it… fuck. When I reach out to adjust myself, she lets out another little gasp. I don’t even think she realizes she’s doing it, which somehow makes it hotter. If she turns me down, it’s going to be a long night full of cold showers. 
When I say her name, she seems to snap out of it. Her gaze quickly darts back up to my face. “Wh-what?” 
Smirking, I ask her, “Seriously, will you go out with me?” 
“Wh-why would you want to do that?” 
My brows twist in confusion. “What do you mean, why?” 
She scrapes her teeth over her plump bottom lip as she averts her gaze. “Whether or not you think you were, you were ridiculously rude when I came in here. Now you’re asking me out? You don’t even know me. I just… I don’t get it.” 
“Well, I’m pretty sure the point of going out is getting to know each other. You don’t know me either. If you got to know me, you’d know all of that was just my winning personality. I asked because I want to go out with you. Either you want to go out with me or you don’t.” 
“I… I’m not looking to get into a relationship right now.” 
“So option B? I’m down if you are,” I tell her, winking.

FLOW By Liz Crowe

Title: FLOW, Detroit Sports Network Book 2 Author: Liz Crowe Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance Release Date: December 18, 2020 Cover Designer: Jay Aheer, Evernight Publishing


When Emerson Tyler’s unrequited high school crush crashed into her first group meeting of the DSN’s social media department, it was strange to say the least. When she learned that her crush wasn’t as “unrequited” as she’d always believed, things got even stranger.

She’d sworn on the day Bryce Nordlinger crushed her teenaged heart–not to mention ruined her reputation in order to save his lady-killer status–that she would never trust him or any man ever again. And she had no intention of breaking that oath, no matter how much more tempting he’d become as a grown up NHL star.

Bryce had always wanted Em to be more than the smart, snarky high school girl who helped him with his terrible English essays. But he’d been busy burnishing his rep as future jock stud, and when his fellow hockey bros caught him skating with her alone in a deserted rink, he’d chosen the easiest path–one that left her hurt in a way he never thought he’d be able to heal.

His complete shock at seeing her, all grown up and more beautiful than ever in the meeting room at DSN, morphed into a steel-plated resolve. He would win her back and make up for the mess he’d made of her high school senior year, while dragging the once-proud Detroit hockey program out of the dumpster fire and back to prominence at the same time.

I rolled my eyes at him and grabbed my scarf, tying it in a neat knot beneath my chin, and grabbed my coat. I slipped it on, fastening the buttons as I walked into the living area. I worked at a coffee shop, and it was my dream to one day attend an art school. I had applied to one in Paris but I hadn’t heard back yet. I didn’t expect to if I was honest.

“Keep your knickers on,” I teased him. “Has Grinch already left?” I asked, referring to my roommate, Thomas.

He laughed at my charming nickname for him. “You know how he is. He hates Christmas. He’ll never change.” He rolled his eyes mockingly as he led me to the front door.

Thomas worked at a bar with Luke called Dominic’s. He and I had known each other since we were infants, and it had always been him and I against the world. My parents had died when I was sixteen years old, and that had been when I moved in with Thomas and his mother. She took me in and loved me like I was one of her own, and I knew how lucky I was. Without her, I probably would have gone into the system.

Luke held the door open for me and waited while I locked up. “Do you know what you’re going to get for Scrooge?” He chuckled as he exited the building, wrapping his arm around my shoulders.

“I’ve almost finished Thomas’s.” I grinned up at him cockily. “He’s the easiest person on my list to buy for. I know that man better than I know my own name.”

Luke raised his eyebrow at me with a knowing expression on his face.

“Shut up!” I dug my finger in his ribs, already knowing what he was hinting at. “Nothing is going on between us.”

“Right,” he mocked. He looked down at me before he reached down and took my hand in his. “How many times do I have to say it?”

I shook my head at him. “He doesn’t see me like that.”

I saw him like that, though.

I felt like I had been in love with Thomas since our teenage years, and I’d hoped something would happen, thinking that maybe, if I waited long enough, he would see me in a new light and want more.

It had never happened, though. No matter how long I’d waited or how many girls I’d seen him with… I had come to the conclusion that he would never see me as anything other than his stupid, book nerd best friend.

“It’ll never happen, Luke.” I shook my head at him. “So, just let it go, okay?” I looked up at him, wanting to get my point across.

“Fine.” He slung his arm back around my shoulder as we began walking down the street. “What time are you working till later?” he asked.

“I have a late one. I start at six pm and finish at nine, so it gives me a chance to get some shopping done first.” I laughed at him before I reached up and rubbed my hand on the top of his head.

Flakes fell from his hair, and I leaned up and kissed his cheek. “I’ll see you later.” I gave him a small wave and turned and walked away from him. “Tell Thomas to keep me some food.”

Like I said, I knew that man better than I knew myself. He’d probably order Chinese food for himself and whatever female he’d chosen to hang out with tonight. Sometimes I believed Thomas lived in his own little bubble. He could be blunt and harsh a lot of the time and often didn’t have a filter between his brain and mouth, but he had a good heart. Sometimes, though, I wished he could see me for what I was—look at me and really see me: just a lovesick girl in love with the perfect guy. Instead, I had a friend who had a revolving door to his bedroom with a different girl accessing it each week.

I rolled my eyes at myself. Today wasn’t the day for pity parties: today was a day for Christmas shopping in the city I loved. There was no point in wishing for things that were never going to happen.

Goodreads / Amazon


She’s not your wife?

As they continued into the hotel, Rose trailed close behind. He peered back at her as she dragged her bags along. She deserves a good night’s sleep by herself.

While he’d relish the company, they’d both needed sleep, and he didn’t want to risk her seeing him hallucinate in case that happened again.

He ran a finger through his hair, mentally calculating how much of his savings he had left. The extra room would cost him, but she deserved some goodwill after everything she’d been through. With a sigh, he pushed open the heavy, wooden doors that led into the hotel lobby.

Sparkling chandeliers hung from the ceiling, the dim light of the candles, and a few stray bulbs illuminated the spacious room. A large spiral staircase descended into the center of the room, and vivid emerald green walls complemented the dark wooden floors. Scatterings of tables and chairs sat near the staircase.

A woman with mussed, brown hair awaited them at a dark wooden desk in the room’s corner. With a perky smile plastered on her face, she chirped out, “Welcome,” as they entered the building.

Gabriel walked over to the desk with Rose in tow and said, “I’d like to book two rooms for tonight.”

The woman gave him a blank look. “You won’t be rooming with your wife?”

Rose coughed beside him, and she clutched his arm in a vice grip as she got nose to nose with the woman. “His what? Surely you must be joking?”

She’s definitely awake after that comment, he thought. Gabriel chuckled at Rose’s shock. As his hand came to his mouth to cover his laughter, he saw the glint of his old, silver wedding band on his finger and slipped it in his pants pocket.

He must have put it on at some point absentmindedly. With a wave of his hand he said, “This lovely woman isn’t my wife, but she’s an excellent travel companion.” He winked at Rose and relished the blush that colored her face.

The woman’s brows knit together. “But you were just wearing a-”

He cut her off, holding up the hand without the ring. “I think you were mistaken, although she is rather stunning.”

The woman blinked at his now bare ring finger. “Sorry. I must have been mistaken.” She handed separate keys to Rose and Gabriel in a daze.

Rose’s eyes widened. “Are you sure?” Gabriel waved her off with a smile.

“We leave early in the morning and you’re…unpleasant when you haven’t slept enough. You can thank me by getting a good night’s rest.”

She shoved his shoulder. “See. She’s quite capable of stunning when angry.”

Rose huffed and headed up the stairs just ahead of him. He thought that was the end of their conversation for the night, but once they were out of the innkeeper’s prying gaze, she pulled him close. She planted a brief kiss on his lips and whispered “Thank you,” before they went to their rooms.

The unexpected peck made his face flush.

Christmas at Roosevelt Ranch by Elise Faber

Christmas at Roosevelt Ranch by Elise Faber is now live!

Amazon —
Universal —
Apple —
Nook —
Kobo —
Google —

Ah. Christmas.

The most miserable time of the year.

Elizabeth hated it. She had too much work to do to stop and hang lights or wrap presents or waste time beneath the mistletoe.

Or maybe she hated it—and especially the mistletoe—because she didn’t have anyone to kiss.

Yeah, maybe that, too.

Either way, she didn’t have the time or energy to dawdle at a Christmas party at Roosevelt Ranch. Unfortunately, the business demanded it, and because her life was the business, she’d gone in with the intention to get in, get out, and get back to work.

Except that plan was derailed by a flat tire, a broken doorknob, and . . . an extremely handsome mechanic.

But perhaps the best laid plans were made to be broken, especially when this Christmas might prove to warm even her Scroogey heart.

About the Author:

USA Today bestselling author, Elise Faber, loves chocolate, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and hockey (the order depending on the day and how well her team—the Sharks!—are playing). She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise changes her hair color more often than some people change their socks, loves sparkly things, and is the mom to two exuberant boys.

She lives in Northern California. Connect with her in her Facebook group, the Fabinators or email her at
