Rumpled Rhett by Rachel Rossano

Rumpled Rhett
Rachel Rossano
(Once Upon a Duchy, #3)
Publication date: August 31st 2021
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, Romance

Rhett is a Huntsman, skilled, secretive, and mysterious. A wanted man, he spends his life on the move. His sole retreat is the outskirts of an isolated village in the northern reaches of the duchies. Then one fall, he arrives to find his hovel burned to the ground and the village reeve offering a new arrangement.

Catherine knows her father, the village miller, only cares about what she can bring him. The latest scheme of marrying her to the Huntsman is not the millers first attempt to sell her. Cats dread wanes when she meets the Huntsman. There is something honorable about him, and he treats her with respect, unlike her father or brother. Perhaps she can escape her fathers influence forever.

Despite his suspicions, Rhett agrees to the deal and frees Cat from her fathers tyranny, at least for a time. But can he protect her when enemies from his past catch up to him?

Inspired by Rumpelstiltskin.

Ah, the nomad returns!” Duggan raised a half-filled beer mug to take a swig. A rotund man, the reeves belly sagged over his belt as he got to his feet.

The few other patrons warily quaffed the last of their drinks and made their way to the door. All of them avoided even glancing my way. I didnt care. I had business with the man before me, not them.

My house burned down.” Crossing my arms over my chest, I narrowed my gaze on Duggans flushed features.

It went up in flames one night.” Duggan huffed out a dramatic sigh before draining the last of his beer. We tried to stop the blaze, but—” He shrugged one of his plump shoulders beneath his fur-lined robe.

We had an agreement. I protect the village, and in exchange, I get land and its tending while I am away.” I let the facts and my glowering silence sink through his thick skull.

He owed me. The village owed me. My reputation as the Huntsman kept most thieves and bandits from targeting the community. Only the foolish and foolhardy occasionally attempted to harass me, but I swiftly enlightened them.

In return, I had requested only two things. I wished to live at peace for a few months every winter, and I needed someone to guard my shelter when I was gone the rest of the year.

We tried to save it,” he protested mildly.

And didnt bother to rebuild it,” I pointed out. Frost-tipped grass had peeked through the ash heaps. Months had passed since the fire by the looks of things.

We considered it.” His voice was even and calm, but he continued to avoid looking at me. But we needed the wood to expand the mill and—”

The tavern.”

We had none left to rebuild your house as well. So, we decided to work out a better situation.”

I let my silence speak for me. I had been content with my situation. It suited me well.

True, I hadnt been particularly fond of the hovel I had been allotted, but it had been enough. I valued its attributes: warmth, isolation on the edge of the village, and comfort enough for my winterly retreat from my reputation.

Come, let me show you.” He motioned toward the square outside.

No.” He had planned this for all I knew, and the villages enforcers awaited me beyond the expensive new tavern windows. First, you explain.”

Duggan pursed his mouth like a spoiled child who had just been reprimanded by his mother.


We all discussed it…asked ourselves what a man needs…decided there were a few ways to improve things…”

I cleared my throat.

So, we took it upon ourselves to—”

The point?” My voice lowered and warned of my waning patience.

We have chosen to give you land, a house, and a wife.” Duggan turned and banged his mug on the bar top. Another!” he bellowed.

A wife?” I stared at him in complete confusion. How did you come to the conclusion that I needed a wife?”

A house without a wife is empty.”

Exactly how I like it, I thought. But Duggan continued.

She can cook for you, clean for you, and fill the house with comforts that make it a home. There is nothing like coming home to a warm meal on the table, hot mulled wine in ones cup, and the pleasures of a womans company to keep one content.”

The image in my head was much less appealing—chatter, demands for expensive accouterments, expectations of me being home on time, and…children. My mind caught on the last thought. I did need children to carry on my family name and the traditions of the huntsman. Distant memories of my mothers stories impressing upon me the importance of my fathers lineage and the bloodline I carried pressed in on me. Shaking free from their hold, I grimaced. That didnt mean I had to do it now or even ever.

Dont discount it until you have tried it, Huntsman. A womans touch is what you need.”

No. I need a secure place to rest.”

Duggan shouted his approval. A house, a wife, some land, it is about time you settled down.”

I have no intention of…”

Duggan was already out the tavern door and yelling to someone across the village square. Master Billier! The Huntsman has returned. Bring your daughter to the meeting house.”

My lip curled of its own accord. Billier was the town miller, and fat, thanks to his position running the only mill for miles around. That didnt stop the man from being despicable. I avoided him when I could and wrestled my temper and conscience every time I couldnt. I wanted nothing to do with any scheme in which he was involved. Last year he had claimed that his daughter could spin straw into gold in an effort to sell her off to a traveling nobleman. I wouldnt entrust any living thing into his care, not even a cat, and I cherished no love for the furry creatures, thanks to their effect on my eyes and nose.

Duggan beckoned from outside. Come, Huntsman. Billier fetches his daughter to the meeting house. Shes as fair and biddable a lass as any other.”

A woman was far less deserving of Billiers care than a cat. I decided to allow the farce to continue a bit longer, the better to understand their intentions. Surreptitiously checking my access to my weapons, I followed the reeve in the direction of the dark meeting hall.

As Duggan rushed about lighting a fire in the hearth and a few of the lanterns against the walls, I staked out the corner farthest from the door. The reeve had only lit the corner nearest the door before it opened to admit the greasy-haired miller and his daughter.

She was small. Petite and barely a handful of feet high, she could fit beneath one of my arms, and I could carry her off without much effort. Not that I would. However, there was a dignity, a solidness to her tiny frame that made her father keep his distance despite his evident eagerness to sell her assets.

She cooks, cleans, and keeps house well enough for a girl. Has a fair enough figure, so I am told. Come on, girl, show off your wares.” Billier shoved his daughter forward so that she stumbled.

Only a brief glare in her fathers direction betrayed her anger. Still, she obeyed. Back straight and shoulders tight, she walked with confidence despite a slight limp. Perhaps she had an injured hip, knee…no. I watched for a few more steps. Something was wrong with her foot, and walking on it pained her, causing a slight hitch in her breathing. Her betrayal of the weakness was so minute that I had almost missed it.

My attention swung to her father. Had he injured her? It would fit his malicious personality. What he could not bully, he humiliated. One look at his daughters tightly wound body, and it was easy to imagine him pressuring her to do something solely for his benefit. But what was he getting out of her marrying me?

Leave,” I demanded.

What? If she doesnt please you—” Billier sputtered.

You two.” I jerked my chin at the two men. Leave.”

Come.” Duggan caught Billiers arm. Best let him talk to her.”

Billiers glare at his daughter intensified as the reeve guided him toward the door outside. You mess this up, girl, and—” Whatever he intended went unsaid as Duggan closed the door behind the two of them with a sharp tug.

The girl relaxed infinitesimally. However, she also eyed me warily and oriented herself to duck behind a table should I become more clearly dangerous.

What is your name?” I asked. I hadnt seen her about the village before, but then I rarely spent any time in the village.

Catherine, but everyone calls me Cat.”

I laughed. It came out as a rusty sound, as though I didnt do it often, which I didnt.

Her eyes narrowed. My name isnt funny.”

No, but the irony is.” Then I realized by her blank expression that I would need to explain. Cats make me sick, the four-legged variety that is.”

She didnt smile. Instead, she simply nodded. Then it is good I am not that kind of cat.”

It is.”

Silence descended between us. Faintly through the door behind her, we could hear her father raging. My concern for Cats safety grew. I didnt think Billier was capable of murder, but one never could tell by looking at a person. Also, accidental murders happened, like beating someone to death in a fit of rage.

Goodreads / Amazon


At least an hour must have passed when she came across a flowing stream and saw a doe and her fawn getting a drink. It was such a calming sight, she paused at the edge of the trees so as not to startle them. The last tension eased from her tight muscles as she listened to the rush of water, birds trilling, and squirrels and who knew what other critters scampering among the trees. Once the deer left, she found a grassy spot, sat down, removed her shoes, and rolled up her pant legs.

Holy crap!” Skye exclaimed the moment she stuck her feet in the water, never expecting it to be so cold. To amuse herself, she lifted them out then dipped back in, over and over until her lower legs and feet were pink and shed grown accustomed to the chill. With the last rays of the descending sun beating down on her shoulders, she set about splashing like a kid, hard enough for drops of cool water to hit her face, replacing the damp sheen of perspiration her long trek had produced.

Skye was having so much fun acting silly, giggling like a teenage girl, she didnt hear the approach of a horse until an amused voice interrupted her reprieve.

We meet again, sweetheart.”

With a startled gasp and annoying return of tension, she jumped up and spun around, staring at the man sitting astride a beautiful tan mare, leaning forward on one corded forearm braced on the pommel. A brown Stetson shielded his eyes but not his dark-shadowed jawline, a sexy contrast to the sandy blond hair curling around his tanned neck.

So we do. Im not your sweetheart,” she answered tartly, finding the generic endearment as irksome as the interruption of her first relaxing moments since rousing to a dead man and memory loss.

His heart-tripping grin widened and did something to her insides despite her annoyance. I call all the girls sweetheart.”

That flippant reply grated as much as his intrusion on her fun. Gritting her teeth, Skye narrowed her eyes. Im not a girl.”

He straightened and nudged his hat up, revealing his slow, nipple-tingling, pussy-dampening bright blue scan up and down her body as he drawled, I have to disagree there, sweetheart.”

Glitter & Greed by Melanie Munton

Glitter & Greed
Melanie Munton
(Brooklyn Brothers, #4)
Publication date: August 31st 2021
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

We are the Rossettis.

The exiled sixth family” of the New York mafia. Were the good guys.

People dont fear us…much. They respect us.

The five of us? Were the Brooklyn Brothers.

And we protect whats ours.

Dont ask me what made this girl different, what made her stand out. Im not proud of it, but it wasnt exactly my first ever lap dance. The last thing I expect is for the same woman Ive been obsessing over for two months to waltz right into my gym.

Catalina Cat” Vasquez is the most alluring, sensual woman Ive ever met. She has secrets, and I want all of them. Its the only way I can protect her. Because it seems Im not the only one whos been looking for her.

Just my luck that I would fall for a woman who has connections with the Mexican cartel. Who would have thought her stalker would be the same man whos about to wage an all-out war on my turf?

Im a fighter by nature.

I fight for whats mine.

And Im not about to lose to someone who wants to steal Cat away from me.

If he thinks his guns will save him from my fists, he came to the wrong city.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo


Cat hadnt seen me sitting at the bar yet, and I had no clue what to expect when she eventually did. I had no say in anything she did with her life, so shed have every right to have my ass kicked out of that club. There had only ever been one outcome by showing up there.

That Id be one step closer to insanity.

An arm belonging to one of the rowdy drunks near the stage suddenly shot out and wrapped around Cats middle. She had to quickly balance her tray of empty glasses when he roughly yanked her onto his suited lap.

I immediately looked toward the security guys standing near the entrance, but the two bouncers were trying to break up a heated altercation between two customers and were distracted by their shouting to pay attention to her. There was a no touching rule at this club, even if it wasnt always strictly enforced. If they threw out every single guy that patted one of the girls on the ass, they wouldnt have any customers left.

This was a whole lot of goddamn touching.

Cat tried to push to her feet, but he pulled her right back down. It was the first time Id ever seen her smile waver with uncertainty. She normally wore a mask of indifference—or numbness—when she worked at Rumors. It was like nothing got to her. Nothing made her wobble.

This motherfucker was bothering her.

You could see it stamped all over her face. The way her mouth tightened, her shoulders stiffened. She was gripping her tray like she was seconds away from whacking him over the head with it.

Id had enough. The dumbass was lucky Id restrained this much and hadnt already dropped him.

Downing the rest of my beer in two gulps, I slammed the glass onto the bar and moved in their direction. Even the nearly obliterated guys who were a few sips away from passing out on the floor got out of my way. They knew by the look on my face not to fuck with me. I was still several feet away when Cats head jerked in my direction, as if she sensed my presence.

Her eyes widened in fear.

The action irritated me. The last thing I wanted was for her to be afraid of me. But then I realized…

She was afraid for him.

Shed already seen me in action. She knew what kind of damage I could inflict.

I came to a stop right next to the son of a bitch in the rumpled suit. His four buddies around the table were just as sloshed as he was but all shrank back in their seats at the sight of me. His hand still had a firm grasp on Cats waist as his glazed eyes slowly ticked up to me.

The next dance is mine,” I grated in a menacingly low voice.

He glared through half-lidded eyes. Oh, yeah? You already pay for it?”

He reached into his pocket and threw down a one-hundred-dollar bill.

I snorted in both disbelief and fury.

Did he really think that was all she was worth? A measly hundred bucks? As padded as my bank account had gotten over the last year, Id never possess enough money for what she was worth. Her value went beyond money anyway. To reduce her to a dollar sign was fucking insulting.

I pulled out my entire money clip and threw it on top of his bill. It was thick and heavy, and all you could see were hundreds.

His eyes widened. He swallowed nervously.

Yeah, motherfucker. And Ill keep going.

Hell, Id bankrupt the asshole before I let him think he could ever have a moment of Cats time. In fact, he had approximately three more seconds to get his fucking hands off. And that was me being generous.

Luka Rossetti was not fucking generous.

$2.99 for a limited time!



It pained him to hear the roughness of her voice. A solid reminder that he’d almost lost her. The battle that had waged inside him since meeting her had amped back up to full scale.
When the nurse was gone, Ben tried again to explain himself. “I was engaged once, you know.”
“Nope. I had no idea,” Layla answered without looking up from her drink. Her apparent indifference hit him right in the heart. “You haven’t said much about yourself.”
“Her name was Lauren. According to her, I’m not fit for a serious adult relationship.”
“Just because it didn’t work out with her you consider yourself unable to care about anyone else?”
Man, she isn’t making this easy on me. “It goes much deeper than that, Layla. I’ve seen things, done things.”
“We all have regrets, believe me.” She sounded sad and a little wistful. Like she had some serious secrets of her own.
“I was in the Air Force. Special forces. My job… well, things happened. Things I could never get over. Lauren knew it, and now, after messing things up with her so badly, so do I.”
Layla set her cup down on the bedside table. “So, because things didn’t work out with one relationship, you left your home, your family, and a job I think you loved to come live on a mountain, sentencing yourself to a lifetime of loneliness and self-pity?”
He exhaled slowly. “You don’t know what it’s like to live in my head. Besides, didn’t you basically do the same thing?”
“This isn’t about me!”
He leaned forward, looking her in the eyes. “Are you saying you don’t have any secrets of your own? Secrets that sent you to the same isolated mountain as me? Secrets that seem to want to see you suffer, maybe even die?”
Layla threw her hands in the air, knocking her cup over. Thankfully it was empty. “I’m not the one saying I want to kiss you but I can’t because of my messed up past.”
“Maybe not. You certainly haven’t shared all the details though, have you?”
“I never kissed you.”
“What does that have to do with anything?”
“It has everything to do with it.” Layla yawned and pulled her blanket up to her chin. “I think we’re done discussing whose life is more messed up. I’m pretty sleepy now anyway.”
He jumped up and paced the room, unwilling to accept her dismissal without making her understand. “You just don’t get it. I’m broken, Layla, and I’m no good for you. Even if I wish I were with every fiber of my being.”
She pounded a fist against the bed beside her. “Don’t you think I should get a say in this? I mean, maybe I’m broken too? Maybe we would help each other? You kissed me. Not just once. I know you felt what I did. Are you willing to give up what you might have because of what you once lost?”
“I’ve lost so much more than you know.” He sat down again then leaned forward resting his elbows on his knees and holding his head in his hands. “It’s better for you if you don’t get involved with me, believe me.”
“Well, it seems you’ve made up my mind for me, so there’s really nothing else to talk about. Have a good night, Ben. What’s left of it anyway.” She rolled away from him.

PETTY RAGE by Thandie



PETTY RAGE by Thandie is LIVE! 



Amazon Universal:

No half measures. No in-betweens. Just two angry extremes with disaster in our very near future.

She’s hellishly smart.
And overly pathetic.
One lingering look and I wanted her. A single laugh at her quirky, smart-mouth and I was done for.
But just underneath her unimpressed gaze as she looked at me, was a calculating deviant that I failed to notice until it was too late.
So now, after a forever of hating her from a distance, I now have a pretty good opening to make her pay in kind and finally knock her out the damn game.
After all, at some point, even ‘good’ guys turn into rugged, devilish beasts.
A beast of her own making.

He’s everyone’s favorite beautiful, reckless, daredevil.
But no one really knows him. Not as well as I do.
They don’t see the rage simmering just behind every smile or the pain engraved in every joke he tells.
So how then will anyone see that he’s no longer the sweet guy I met but is now the devil with a wicked smirk?
Strike one, I lied to him.
Strike two, I fell for him.
But strike three? I believed he was still the same as before.
He wasn’t.
The blue fairy now grants dark nightmares.
