EXCERPTS:

Escape by Helen Hardt

Emily

I stop looking over my shoulder on the fourth day.

I don’t notice this until the evening, when I sit down by myself at the bar. I’ve been at the Wolfe Island Art Colony less than a week, but until today, I’ve been watching my back.

When you’re hiding from the devil himself, you don’t let your guard down.

A second after sitting down on the wooden stool at the beachfront bar, I look behind me.

That’s when I realize it’s the first time I’ve done it today.

Whether that’s good or bad, I can’t say. I shouldn’t be getting too comfortable.

“What’ll it be, pretty girl?”

I shift my gaze toward the bartender’s deep voice—

And nearly drop my jaw onto the counter. His eyes are such a gorgeous mixture of emerald and cognac. Most would simply call them hazel. I see a swirl of Prussian Green and Olive Green with hints of Renaissance Gold.

And believe it or not, those amazing eyes pale in comparison to the rest of him.

I smile shyly. I’ve kept to myself since I arrived on the island, spending most of my time painting the scenes outside my hut. This is the first time I’ve ventured to the beach.

“You going to answer me?” Hunky bartender raises his dark brown eyebrows.

“Yeah. Sorry.” My cheeks burn. “Just some water, I guess.”

“You guess? You can do better than that, pretty girl.”

Pretty girl. The second time he’s called me that in the span of two minutes. I don’t feel pretty. On the outside, I suppose I’m okay. On the inside, a disaster.

“Cat still got your tongue?” He smiles a lazy smile, that makes him even better looking. “Trust me?”

I part my lips and lick them. Trust him? I trust no one. No one. He has no idea what kind of can of worms he’s opened.

“I’ll take that as a yes.” He reaches under the bar and pulls out a martini glass.

I hate martinis, but still I say nothing.

“Try my specialty. Virgin?”

My jaw drops. “Of course not!”

He laughs. “I mean do you want the virgin version of my specialty?”

“Oh.” God, my cheeks can’t get any hotter. I can only imagine what they look like in the light of the setting sun. “That’s what I meant. I don’t want the virgin one.”

“Got it.” He smiles.

Yeah, he doesn’t buy it, but I give him credit for letting me try to weasel out of my embarrassment.

He turns toward the back of the bar and pulls three different bottles from the myriad options.

Three bottles? Maybe I should have gone with the virgin.

He fills a stainless steel shaker with crushed ice and adds a stream of the golden, the yellow, and the hot pink. I eyed the bottle closest to me—the pink one. Crème de Noyeaux. Never heard of it.

Next he adds what appears to be orange juice and then pineapple. A Mai Tai maybe? No, he said it was his specialty. Surely he didn’t invent the Mai Tai. Or maybe he invented this particular version.

He adjusts the lid and shakes several times. Once he’s done, he slides a slice of lime around the rim of the martini glass, dips it in sugar, and then strains the contents of the shaker into the glass.

I notice the color first. It’s a lovely pinkish-orange, the shade of last night’s sunset that I tried to capture on canvas but couldn’t.

He pushes the drink toward me and sets a cocktail napkin next to it. “Tell me what you think.”

Good enough. I inhale and pick the martini glass up by its stem. I sniff. Nice fragrance. Orangey and almondy. Very tropical.

“Well?” he says. “Are you waiting for a little umbrella?”

I can’t help myself. I laugh. I laugh like I haven’t in a long time, and it feels good. Really good.

“You got one?” I ask.

“Your wish is my command.” He reaches under the counter and then pops a tiny pink umbrella into my drink.

If I had my phone, I’d shoot a pic and post this on Instagram.

I don’t have my phone, though, and I deleted all my social media accounts.

In fact, the only person who has a clue where I am is my brother, Buck, and he’s sworn to secrecy. He helped me get the invitation to the colony when I needed to leave town in a hurry. The person I’m running from can’t touch Buck.

No one can.

Exes and Ohs! by Leah Marie Brown

“What can I get ye?”

“Something strong.”

“Are ye wanting a drink or a man?”

“A drink.”

“Either way, I would recommend something Irish.” His blue eyes sparkle.

“Whiskey will be fine.”

“Grand choice.”

“Leave the bottle.”

“Not a bother.” He slides the bottle toward me.

He looks like one of the thirst traps I follow on Instagram, all chiseled jaw and dimpled cheeks. His dark blond hair is styled in an undercut, like he just took off his flat cap and stepped off the set of Peaky Blinders. His black button-up is straining to contain his chest and bulging biceps. He winks before walking to the other end of the bar to take an order. Broad shoulders and an ass so sweet it makes me want to sink my teeth into it. Not that I’m into asses…or biting them. Don’t know where that came from.

I drain my whiskey in one swallow. I’m reaching for the bottle to pour a finger or two of the emotion- and tongue-numbing liquid into my glass when I notice a tall, slender woman hovering at the entrance. She’s wearing a J. Crew little black dress with an Exes and Ohs nametag slapped to her chest—more in the region of her shoulder than her breast. She’s clutching her purse to her stomach as if she expects to be accosted by a knife-wielding hooligan. Poor thing looks like one of those cartoon fraidy cats—eyes wide, shoulders dropped, back hunched, like she will startle at the slightest noise. She takes a deep breath and hurriedly walks to the bar, practically collapsing onto a stool near me.

She notices me watching her, slides her glasses up her nose, and offers me a tremulous smile before pulling her phone out of her purse. Classic self-conscious single woman move. I want to snatch the phone out of her hand and replace it with a bottle of vodka and a straw. Everyone knows drinking alcohol through a straw accelerates its effects, and this girl needs twenty-five ounces of liquid courage, stat.

Next Rock on the Right by EmKay Connor

Luka

“How was your trip?”

“Long. I’d like to get to the hotel…or wherever I’m staying.” She jutted a hip, planted a hand on it, and cocked her head. “Is it true you don’t have WiFi? That’s going to make it very difficult to do my job if there’s no internet here.”

I bristled at her patronizing attitude. “Grab your stuff, and I’ll show you to your thatched hut. We put up a new hammock just for you, and the women checked every inch of your mosquito netting to make sure there are no tears. We wouldn’t want you inconvenienced by something like a bug bite or no internet.”

She glared at me, and I glared back. I didn’t want to be the Care For All spokesman, and I didn’t want to deal with a spoiled city girl throwing a temper tantrum because she couldn’t check her social media. The commitment I’d made out of respect for Doc felt like rough rope binding my hands and feet and neck. It chaffed and burned and made it hard to breathe.

“Doctor Man not so good at da hospitality.” Martina popped out of the kitchen. She bustled down the hall and wedged herself between us.

Britt Connolly’s gaze dropped to read Martina’s T-shirt and then jumped to me, a pink blush tinting her cheeks.

Hah. I’d teased Martina about the slogan this morning.

Doctors Do It with Skill and Love

“You stay with Oz and Nina. They da owners of Sandcastle Bungalows. Nice place. Good food.” Martina shrugged. “Maybe technology.”

“Maybe?” Britt looked past Martina to me. She dipped her head.

“Our infrastructure is limited.” I regretted my own outburst. “A power plant built in the eighties provides enough electricity for fourteen hours of service each day. There’s no power before seven a.m. and or after nine p.m., although Oz has a generator he uses for paying guests. BrightStar Telecommunications provides satellite internet access to most of the islands in the Caribbean, but the signal isn’t reliable.”

“Thank you for explaining.” She lifted her backpack. “If you’ll give me directions to this bungalow place, I’ll check in.”

“Doctor Man, he show you da way.” Martina glowered at me, giving me no choice. She could make my life miserable if she wanted to.

It was easier to comply.

It would also give me a chance to clear the air with Miss Connolly. I resented being thrust into the role of spokesman. I disliked Big Pharma and distrusted Corporate America. Even nonprofits like Care For All made me leery. Too many rules and too many hoops meant people went without timely, affordable medical care.

Bureaucrats cared about money. I cared about people.

I’d agreed to work with CFA because Doc asked me to and because the islanders would suffer if I let pride get in the way. I could suck it up for two weeks. That fact that Britt Connolly was hot as hell might even make it fun.

I swooped down to grab the suitcase before she could add it to her load. The backpack looked like it carried bricks, the straps digging into her shoulders, pulling her blouse tight against her breasts. Tight enough reveal the lacy pattern of her bra.

Blood raced to my groin, my cock engorged in seconds. I flashed back to life in the States and the casual availability of sex. Young women at nightclubs in slinky dresses or on beaches with everything hanging out. Singers and performers whose careers exploded, not because of talent, but how well they bounced their tits and ass. The infamous Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

Don’t misunderstand. Totally not judging. I love eye candy just as much as the next guy.

There aren’t many eligible women my age on this or any of the nearby islands, so my visual sweet tooth has long gone unsatisfied. Catching sight of Britt’s bra was a tease, a tiny bit of deliciousness, like the corner broken off a chocolate bar and laid on your tongue to slowly melt.

“Are you hungry, Miss Connolly?” I led her out the front door, down the short walkway, and out to the street. “Because I am suddenly ravenous.”

Her Perfect Guy by Lyz Kelley

He turned—and blinked. Devon was standing in his room, surrounded by luggage. She looked adorable, her hands fidgeting like she didn’t know whether to stand there or leave.

“Devon? How did you get into my room?” He stared at her and did his best to appear calm.

“Kayla was supposed to call you.” Devon took a step forward, even though she looked like she wanted to turn around and leave. “It turns out your uncle and aunt’s arrival was unanticipated, and the hotel is a room short.”

“And?” He crossed the room, wanting to be near her. Her sweet scent of suntan coconut oil hit first, and then the smell of her light perfume.

“Kayla thought that, since you have a suite, you wouldn’t mind sharing your room. I told her about the fake fiancée thing, and she decided this would solve her problem…and yours.”

“My problem?” He chuckled at his sister’s audacity. “You were the one who announced our engagement.” He stopped far enough away to avoid touching her or pulling her into his arms. Peeling back those layers was getting more and more tempting.

He released a breath of pent-up frustration. “This seems like a solution Kayla would come up with to please my parents and avoid my aunt’s complaints. My father’s sister is demanding, and knowing her the way I do, I guarantee she’d complain nonstop if she had the inconvenience of staying at another hotel, even though it’s her fault for not being organized enough to avoid last-minute plans.”

“Don’t blame Kayla.” Devon softened her tone. “Appeasing everyone is her way of showing she cares.”

Kayla was a pain in his ass, always badgering him to take a break, have some fun, and stop working so much. When she started sounding like a video meme on a constant rewind loop, he stopped taking her calls, but then she’d just discover fresh ways to get him to stop working, like sending him tickets to his favorite sports events and the new release of his favorite role-playing video game. He appreciated that she cared, but he wished she were more supportive of his dreams.

Personally, he didn’t blame his sister for her show of concern. They might have their differences, but he adored Kayla. Besides, she just wanted him to be happy and to stop hiding. She’d witnessed two of his very public and messy breakups after neither woman would sign his prenuptial agreement. Both had wanted his wealth and status, not him. Kayla swore there were women in the world who were not like that, but he had yet to find one.

Then again, it could be that one of those rare women was standing in front of him right now, but he’d never know, because his heart couldn’t go there. Not again.

However, the vulnerable Devon looked even more luscious than she had this morning. His head was saying don’t touch, but his heart was sending different signals.

What the hell am I doing?

He had a new product to get launched. If past relationships were any indication, women wanted his time—time he didn’t have to give. He needed to stay focused, and focusing on Devon wasn’t where he needed to spend his time right now.

“I should go. I told Kayla this wasn’t a good idea. I’ll see myself out.” Devon bent to retrieve her backpack.

“And where will you go?” he asked, just to make sure she’d thought her decision through. “You said so yourself. The hotel is fully booked. Staying with me is the only option.”

“There must be a couch or a rollaway somewhere. Like you said, I’m the one who created this problem. I’ll solve it.”

He liked the way her chin lifted a little. “I’m sure you will.”

She crossed her arms and bristled. “What is that supposed to mean?”

“Just that. You’re a problem-solver.” And he would have liked nothing better than to have her solve his problems, but his business issues would have to wait. “Don’t make me look like the bad older brother who doesn’t support his kid sister during her wedding preparations. The best solution would be for you to stay here.”

“So you want me to stay?” Her brows hitched to their highest level.

“Yeah. I do.” He walked to the door and closed it.

For Vacation Only by Mila Nicks

Title: For Vacation Only
Author: Mila Nicks
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 11, 2021


When blue-blooded Blake Mulligan gets jilted at the altar, he breaks free of his ‘predictable’ reputation by going on the honeymoon cruise anyway—without his snobby, socialite fiancée. For the next fourteen days he hopes to escape reality and pretend he hasn’t suffered the humiliation of a lifetime. The last thing he expects is to meet beautiful songstress Jubilee Collazo with her honey-sweet voice.

Jubilee is talented and passionate and doesn’t just march to the beat of her own drum—she dances to it. While she longs to do more than croon cover songs from a cruise ship stage, she enjoys seeing the world. Her love of travel makes her the perfect person to show Blake around each exotic stop of the Mediterranean cruise.

What starts out as a simple tour guide arrangement, quickly grows into something more. Despite their different backgrounds, Blake and Jubilee discover an incredible connection they never imagined possible. But as their final destination approaches, so does reality. Like points on a compass, their lives seem to be charted in opposite directions—his to the Hamptons and high-society, and hers back out across the rolling seas. Can anything short of a perfect storm keep these two lovebirds together?






Goodreads Review – “I already told you, I loved this book very much, it was such a cute fun read, it left me with a smile on my face and knowing that I’ll miss Blake and Jubilee very much, they were amazing characters to read.”
Nick (the infinite limits of love) – “I had a lot of fun reading For Vacation Only. It was exactly the kind of feel-good vacation romance I was craving.”
Anna Reads Here – You NEED this because it has:
» A vacation romance, duh
» A beautiful, talented, strong and passionate heroine of colour
» A charming, awkward and Clark Kent-esque hero
» Two weeks on a cruise ship
» Sightseeing in beautiful parts of the Mediterranean
» A delicious and sexy slow burn
» ALL THE SWOON


The lines leading to the gangway stretched the length of the deck. Jubilee got in the back of the line, AirPods playing music in her ears, and waited it out. It was always nice to get off the ship and sightsee like a regular traveler. Though being on the luxurious ship was great too, nothing compared to perusing historic villas and digging your toes into exotic sands.

Ma thought her job as a cruise ship singer was a dead-end job, but she couldn’t have been more wrong. Working with Seven Seas allowed her to travel abroad and see the world. While it may not have been her exact dream of performing her own music, it was still miles ahead of the shitty waitress jobs she’d had back in Brooklyn.

The line eventually shortened as more and more passengers shuffled down the gangway and onto dry land. The first rays of sunlight touched her skin, bathing her with its invigorating warmth. Her smile was immediate.

Beauty surrounded her. From the glorious blue sky to the hillside town sandwiched between the mountains and the sparkling sea, it was almost too much to take in. She joined dozens of others as they wandered from the gigantic cruise ship and set off to explore.

At first choosing a path was difficult. Jubilee allowed herself to be jostled along by the crowd, wandering onto the cobblestone streets of Kotor’s old town. She pulled out her phone and snapped photos of the medieval buildings and looming mountainside.

Soon she separated from the pack, breathing in the briny sea air, eyes roving over the historic architecture. Each step felt like walking through history as she wended down narrow passages and admired the fine detail of every stone.

Though it wasn’t her first time in Kotor, the majestic town revealed something new to her upon each visit.

She wound up in the main square, where shops and restaurants abounded. Other tourists curiously perused the area with pockets full of euros. She dug into her own pocket for enough change to buy a kebab from one of the street vendors.

“Damn it,” Jubilee cussed as two coins slipped through her fingers. She knelt to pick them up, but another, larger hand got to them first.

Blake scooped the coins into his palm, rising alongside her and holding them out for her to take. She half smiled and took her coins back.

“Thanks,” she said. “I guess I should’ve expected to run into you here.”

“I was just grabbing some bottled water and saw you—I’m not sure if you realize how much you stick out.”

Jubilee’s eyes rolled upward as if trying to see her lavender hair. “Sticking out’s not so bad. Besides, I’m the younger, underachieving child. If I didn’t pierce my belly button and dye my hair crazy colors, what would I even have? I was always going to be in second place, why not at least have some fun?”

“You’re not in second place.”

“Oh, yes, I am. When it comes to our family dynamics, it’s Adele this. Adele that. Which is cool. I’m used to it. I don’t mind being the off-the-wall weirdo.”

“What other off-the-wall colors have you dyed your hair?”

“You name it, I’ve dyed it. Fire engine red. Midnight blue. Neon green. My mom hated the neon green,” Jubilee said with a reminiscent laugh. “She wouldn’t even look at me. Don’t even get me started on how she feels about tattoos. She says no quality men would ever want a wife who has them.”

A strange look passed over Blake’s face; one she couldn’t place. “I don’t know, I bet plenty of men are into you.”

EXCERPT

“What’s your name?” I ask.
She turns and scans my body.
That’s right. You want me. “Well?”
Slowly, she puts her cocktail glass down. “That depends on who’s asking.”
Jesus.
Her voice is a sucker punch to the gut. Soft, clear, almost gentle. But there’s an edge to it I like. She’s going to sound gorgeous screaming my name.
I get up all in her business. There’s no time for bullshit games. Either she wants my cock or doesn’t. “A name, gorgeous.”
She inhales. “Eden.”
Green light. Grabbing her chin and brushing my mouth against hers, I murmur, “Say yes, Eden.”
“What am I saying yes to?”
“Me. This moment. This moment only. I’ll make you feel better than you’ve ever felt before.”
“You’re very full of yourself.”
I shrug. “I’ll make you come hard. Fact.”
She tries to hide her shocked smile by looking past me. “You mean, here? Now?”
“Make a decision, gorgeous. I don’t have all night.”
Eden bites her bottom lip, and fuck if I don’t want to do it for her.
Releasing it, she murmurs, “Okay. But—”
Cupping her nape, I angle her head how I like it and kiss the fuck out of her.
Holy. Motherfucking. Fuck.
Eden tastes like candied apples and hot sex.
Wrapping her arms around my neck, she presses her tits into my chest and kisses me back. It’s cute she thinks she can control the pace.
Shoving her against the balcony, I devour her mouth.
She moans.
“That’s right, gorgeous. Make some noise for me.”

BLURB

She’s been burned by men. He’s supposed to be keeping his distance. Will his cover be blown by true love?

Denise “Neesa” Longfellow is staring down being single at thirty. And her history of always trusting the wrong guy makes her wary of letting anyone else into her affections. But when her friends coax her into a girls’ night out, she surprises herself by giving a business card to a ruggedly handsome stranger…

PI Reuben “Ben” Murray is a career bachelor. And watching a pretty girl from afar for a job is nothing unusual for this former LA cop. But as soon as he meets this one up close and personal, her allure threatens to overwhelm his usual practice of not touching the merchandise.

Despite her concerns that he’s harboring secrets, Neesa can’t help but fall hard for the charming man. But as Ben discovers the facts behind his client’s obsession with her, he fears the truth may take the life of the only woman he’s ever truly loved.

Can Neesa and Ben survive a deadly surprise that could claim more than their hearts?

Chasing Neesa, previously released as Neesa, is the pulse-pounding first novel in The Reality Book contemporary romance series. If you like intense connections, unique story concepts, with a few steamy scenes, then you’ll adore Dina Haynes’s suspenseful tale.

EXCERPT

All of a sudden, his legs took over and walked him across the room. He stood behind Denise, with his mind a blank. He finished off his beer and wiped a thumb across his brow. This close to her felt like standing too close to a bonfire. Was he setting himself up to get burned?
“You’re pretty good at that,” he said.
His voice was steadier than he thought he could pull off. That is until she spun around to face him. She caressed a hand over her backside as though she sixth-sensed the R-rated thoughts from his head.
“Neesa…” The purple-haired one sidled up to Denise and nudged her. With a hand cupped over her mouth, she said, “Pick your jaw up off the floor and invite the guy to play a game.”
“No.” She turned to Reuben and gave a weak smile. “I mean, I thought we were having a girl’s night. You wouldn’t want to interfere with a few girls catching up.”
The backdrop of the bar fell away, leaving them the only two people in the room as far as he was concerned. What he heard Denise say was, “We are having a night. Want to interfere?”
