Love returns to Louisiana’s Butterfly Bayou in a new small-town contemporary romance sure to charm hearts, from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake.

Sylvie Martine was prepared to take Washington D.C. by storm, but she put that dream on hold when her beloved hometown of Papillon, Louisiana, needed her most. Now Sylvie’s the mayor of the tiny town on the bayou that holds her heart. But for Sylvie, this can only be a pit stop on the way to bigger and better things. The last thing she needs is an old love to resurface and threaten her goals.

Rene Darois’s whole life has been about serving his family—no matter how much it hurts. He’s used to sacrificing for his large extended family and the company his grandfather created.

Sylvie is everything he wants in a wife—smart, funny, and caring—and he planned to woo her anyway.

Now he just has to convince Sylvie that their love is worth it all, or he and the bayou will lose her forever.

Cover Reveal

Then You Saw Me by Carrie Aarons



Carrie Aarons has revealed the cover for Then You Saw Me!



Releasing August 12, 2021

You know what's guaranteed to send your heart into your throat? Opening the front door of your off-campus house to find the boy you had a crush on all through high school telling you he's the new subletter.
 
Of course, he barely knew I existed back then, and still doesn't even though we attend the same university. But in a house of six college kids, it should be easy to remain invisible while carrying a torch for him. After all, I'm skilled at being overlooked and playing second fiddle.
 
Except Austin Van Hewitt, my hometown's golden boy, doesn't get the memo. After we throw our first party of the year, I'm on his radar and somehow my lips miraculously end up on his. The budding romance is one I've always dreamt about. As he shows more and more interest, I push aside the plaguing insecurity of never being good enough.
 
But then a letter shows up in our mailbox. A time capsule I wrote to myself when I was fifteen. You know, the kind where a teacher sends it to you years later? Guess who opens it by mistake and reads all about how I plan on marrying him and having his babies one day? Did I mention I signed it using his last name?
 
Mortifying would be an understatement. After he starts pulling away, I'm once again the girl in the background hoping that someone will understand me enough to pay me all of their attention.
 
The old me, the one conditioned to settle for what she's given, would back down. This time, though, if I want everything I almost held in my hands, I'll have to speak up. I'll have to admit exactly how I feel, fight for the love that was blossoming. And I'm not sure what's scarier; voicing my inner thoughts or facing his ultimate rejection.

Excerpt

In so many ways, Lydia should have known. From the moment Daniel Joseph had appeared in her office doorway, there had been something about him.

But she hadn’t expected . . . this.

“Unless you tell me to go,” he said in a husky voice,

“I’m going to kiss you.”

As Lydia stared up into his face, they both knew

what she wanted. What she needed. Still, she kept them on the edge for a heartbeat or two.

“I don’t want you to leave.”

“Good,” he growled.

When he lowered his head, there was a rumble of satisfaction in his chest—and then she wasn’t hear- ing anything. Thinking anything. Worried about any- thing.

As big and strong as he was, his lips were soft against her own. Gentle, too, as if he knew she wanted to be handled with care—not because she didn’t want him, but because she did. Too much. And God, there were more reasons to pull away than get close to him, except there was no denying the chemistry. The connection. The heat.

And the experience was even better than the anticipation.

Aware that she was going to stop this sooner than she wanted, but much later than she should, Lydia lifted her arms and put them on his shoulders. His heavy body was rock-hard under his windbreaker, the muscles roping up to his neck—and that was where her hands went.

She just wanted to see if his hair was as thick and lush as it looked—

It was.

As she dug into the waves, he purred in response, like he was a great cat and she had found his favorite stroking place. And that was when he wrapped an arm around her waist. She did not feel trapped, though. She had the sense, as he continued to stroke her lips softly, that he would let her go immediately.

Not that she was going anywhere anytime the hell soon.

Inch by inch, their bodies came into full contact, her breasts against his chest, the front of her thighs meeting his, their hips brushing. And then the kiss deepened, his tongue licking into her—

Letting out another moan, she tightened her hold on his nape, in his hair, a sense of desperation making her rougher than she should have been—she was holding him to her now, grabbing on to him. But he was going with it. One of his hands traveled from her shoulder to her waist, to her hip, and she moved against his palm, imagining what it would be like to be naked with him touching her.

With those workman hands.

Daniel eased back and stroked her hair away from her face. “You’re a good kisser, you know that?”

“Am I?” She smiled like an idiot. “I could have sworn it was you.”

“I guess it’s us.” His eyes roamed her face. And then one side of his lips tilted up. “I’m going to go now.”

Lydia exhaled in surprise—but like she was going to sleep with him here on the mauve kitchen floor?

Not a bad idea, actually, she thought as she glanced down.

“Okay,” she said. “I understand. We do work together—”

“That’s not why I’m leaving.”

“So why are you?”

He traced her cheek. Then her jawline. “If I stay, I’m not going to let you get any sleep at all.” He stepped back. “You know where to find me, if you need me. And I’ll see you after we’re allowed to wake up at four-oh-one a.m.”

She nodded. “Good night, Daniel.”

Turning away, he lifted a hand over his shoulder. When he got to the door, he said, “Don’t forget to lock up.”

And then he was gone.

New Release

HACKING MR. CEO by Anna Hackett

Release Date: July 27

To save the only mother I’ve ever known, all I have to do is hack a tech billionaire.

My foster mother is sick. The woman who gave me a home, love, a life. I’ll do anything to find the money for her surgery, including using my skills as a hacker.

My name’s Remi, also known as Rogue Angel, and usually I work for a security company testing clients’ systems. But now a shadowy bad guy has tracked me down and given me an ultimatum.

I have to hack Rivera Tech—the biggest technology company in the world, owned by billionaire CEO, Maverick Rivera. If I do, I get paid and I can help my foster mother. If I don’t, my family are in danger.

Hacking Rivera is no walk in the park, and soon I find myself in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse with big, grumpy, and way-too-sexy Maverick. What I never, ever expected was for him to make me feel safe, or to threaten my closely-guarded heart, or to ignite every single part of me. 

I can’t drag him into my mess.

But Maverick has other ideas, and he isn’t a man who takes no for an answer.

BELL
I grew up in a cult, one that kept me completely sheltered from the real life. They even forced me to marry at the age of fourteen.

I was trapped, and life was utter hell until I was offered a way out. I spent months healing and finally being happy for the first time ever.

Then he came into my life.

Maverick rooted himself deep inside my heart from the second I met him. From his cocky grin to his alpha male attitude, I was in love with him.

More importantly, he kept me safe when I needed him most.

MAVERICK
The second I laid eyes on her, I knew she was the one I had waited for my whole life. All I saw was her.

But everything came to a head when her past resurfaced.

The second I saw the fear in her eyes, something inside me snapped. It became my life’s mission to find every single person who hurt her.

After all, I am a Grim Sinner for a reason.
It’s time to Reap.

It’s been six years since I escaped the horror I called life.

I was raised in a cult that had forced me to marry a sadistic and evil man. It was absolute hell, but I was finally given a second chance.

I’ve had time to heal and finally find myself, but the last thing I ever wanted or expected was to fall in love. I figured it wasn’t in the cards for me and you can’t miss something you’ve never had or experienced.

But the second I met Konrad, he owned my heart.

It was as if I learned to breathe for the very first time. He came into my life, pushed my barriers, and made it known that I was his. With him, I found my home, my everything.

Until my ex-husband decided that he wanted me back.

Burned

HOT NEW RELEASE

BURNED by SE Rose and Sierra Hill is LIVE!

#1ClickHere

https://bit.ly/Burned-FanningtheFlames

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire…

Callie

Becoming a firefighter has been my life’s goal.

I’ve overcome every obstacle and I’ve finally made it to the top of the ladder: to the role of Rivers Crossing first ever female Fire Chief.

But there’s a teeny, tiny (okay…big) problem. And it comes in the form of a very hot firefighter in my crew.

Tyler Holmes. The man I slept with ten years ago.

Apparently, the fire that began between us back then still burns scorching hot and his charm still fans the flames.

But as his new boss, I must treat him just like everyone else under my command.

Even if my traitorous body remembers exactly what happened when I was under his commands in bed.

My options are limited.

I either ignore this attraction and douse it with cold water or let it burn my career down to ash.

Tyler

Ten years and I’m still thinking about her. Ten years of comparing every woman against her.

And now she’s here, standing in front of me…as my boss.

Callie’s even more gorgeous than I remember.

But as Chief Bartholomew she’s all business.

She doesn’t want to admit that what we had was more than a spark, it was an inferno.

And if she’d just get past her stubbornness, she’d see the attraction between us is still scorching hot.

Only now she’s in charge and I don’t know if I can accept her as my chief.

I don’t even know if I can accept that I still want her?

Because if I admit there’s still something between us, I might have to leave the job I love in order to keep the woman that I still burn for.

Their dance video–and their love–is about to go viral…
Dalton Cunningham has always been the comic relief in his family. And he’s worried they may never see him as anything else, and that they might be right. It might be too late for his father to see Dalton prove himself as an adult capable of helping build the family business, but it’s not too late to show his brothers and his mom.
His tool of choice? Social media. He’s got the marketing down pat, and when he pulls in a classical dancer to build his brand, things really take off.
The problem? That dancer is Rae Trask, and she doesn’t appreciate some goofy hot wine guy stealing her dance videos and making a mockery of them. She’s busy trying to save her studio and her dream. Even though no one else seems to believe a dream is something to build a life around.
When Rae and Dalton combine forces, they set the app on fire, and find a little heat erupting between the two of them.
Can they work together to accomplish their goals? And will their spark burn into something much hotter?
