(The Cordoba Agency, #3)
Publication date: October 22nd 2021
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

The last thing he wants to do is play bodyguard to the woman who broke his heart.

As the wife of a pioneer in the field of biotechnology, Katherine Stallworth had an up-close view of the ugly underbelly of corporate espionage and the cutthroat nature of competition. When her husband is murdered and her life threatened, she turns to Raheem Miller, the one man she can trust–despite their sordid past.

Years ago, Raheem fell in love with Katherine–older, sophisticated, and way out of his league. And nothing has changed. While he’d rather avoid this assignment, he’ll never forgive himself if anything happened to her. In the middle of conducting an investigation into her husband’s death, he discovers a conspiracy that could rock the very foundation of the United States.

Now he must bring the culprits to justice while keeping Katherine alive and his desire in check. Easier said than done.

EXCERPT:

Katherine Stallworth stared in horror at the carnage before her and the foul stench of death. Nothing could have prepared her for this.

Her husband’s body lay sprawled across the duvet in the dimly lit room, his dark shirt darker from the uneven circle of blood that covered his entire chest. Dead, and so were his bodyguards.

Keith lay face down at the foot of the bed, his arm at an awkward angle, his weapon butted up against the wall as if someone had kicked it away from his hand. His suit jacket was soaked with blood, and so was the cream-colored carpet beneath him.

Ivan was on the floor, slumped with his back against the bed and his temple touching the nightstand. He would look like someone who’d fallen asleep sitting up, except half his face had been blown off and his white shirt was drenched in blood.

Blood.

Blood everywhere.

Katherine walked slowly over to the bed on shaky knees. Her husband’s pale skin was ashen and drained of life, his mouth open as if in the middle of a scream, and his sightless eyes staring up at the ceiling.

She lifted both hands to her mouth as tears filled her eyes and pain wrenched her heart. “Thurgood,” she whispered into her cupped palms. Who had done this, and why?

Then she heard a noise in the walk-in closet. Her heart jumped, and her mouth fell open in silent panic. She wasn’t alone. The killer was still there!

She backed away slowly, chest tight as she tried hard not to make a sound. When her foot breeched the entrance to the door, a shadowy figure dressed in black exited the closet, and she turned swiftly, rushing down the hall toward the staircase. Breathing accelerated, she gripped the wooden railing with a trembling hand and moved down the stairs as quickly and silently as she could on her toes.

These shoes! The pretty gold heels she’d worn with such pride to the reception she now cursed for their impracticality. Her pounding heart was so loud in her ears and her breathing so shallow, she wondered if the intruder could hear the evidence of her fear.

Her driver and the other bodyguard had already left for the night, but she had to get out of there. She had to get to the garage.

“Hey!”

Halfway down the stairs, she stopped and turned.

A man stared at her from the catwalk. He wore a black ski mask over his head, with openings for his mouth and eyes—eyes that locked with hers and reeked of venom. His menacing posture and the death she’d witnessed provoked an immediate response.

Run!

Katherine took off down the stairs.

“Stop!” he bellowed.

There was no way she was stopping.

Almost to the bottom, a gunshot shattered the wood railing she clutched. She screamed and, in her panic, missed her footing on the stairs. She twisted her ankle. Sharp pain jiggered up her leg, and she went down. Her hands flew out instinctively to protect her face, but she skidded along the edge of the last two steps, scraping her knees, shins, palms, and forearms.

She lost one shoe and landed in an ungainly heap at the foot of the stairs in the foyer with her evening gown crumpled around her upper thighs. Heavy footsteps pounded behind her. Too terrified to turn around, Katherine ignored the burn of the bruises and scrambled to her feet as another man appeared in the open doorway to her right.

“Get her!” the one on the staircase yelled.

She kicked off the other shoe and gathered her full skirt to keep from tripping over the hem. She limped away from them both as fast as possible, fueled solely by adrenaline as she raced into a second hallway and pushed open the door to Thurgood’s study. She slammed it closed and quickly turned the lock but knew her actions would not keep them out for long.

There was a loud boom as one of the men slammed his body against the door, which sent her scrambling across the room. She stubbed her little toe on a chair and cried out, wincing at the debilitating pain but didn’t dare stop, and hopped over to the bookcase beside her husband’s desk.

The master bedroom, where Thurgood was murdered, was also a safe room. But fortunately, there was a second safe room inside his study.

She yanked away two books hiding a plain-looking piece of metal in the wall and pressed her thumb to the silver disc. Right away, the entire shelf popped out, and she swung the door open.

The office door was kicked in at that very moment. The frame splintered and pieces of wood spewed through the air. Both men rushed in, but Katherine slipped between the shelf and the wall and yanked the door closed.

The last thing the Kringle siblings want to do is come home for Christmas.

But when they need to help their father turn the family business around, they have no choice. Love is crashing the holiday this year.

The Grump Who Stole Christmas by S Doyle: Kristen left her high-powered career in New York, and she’d do just fine running the family Christmas tree farm – if it wasn’t for a pesky man with a beard, an axe, a lot of flannel, and an attitude.

Jingle Bell Beard by Julie Kriss: Matt is the grumpiest NHL player in the league, and nothing can make him come home – except the girl who broke up with him in high school, who needs him to beef up her PR campaign. Maybe he needs her to warm up his cold heart.

About The Book

Nolan

I’m a teacher who has only one thing missing from his life: a healthy relationship.

I have a plan in place. This should be easy.

No more toxic men. No more casual hookups.

I want something real. A love that’s equal, not lopsided.

I’m a fixer at heart, but I’m done with the hopeless and the selfish.

Rafe

I’m a dad. Pure and simple.

The only thing I want is for my daughter to be happy and healthy.

I keep my head down. I work like crazy, and I found her a great school in a new place.

I don’t have time for anything else but her.

She has my heart, leaving little for anyone else.

When this kindergarten teacher and single father come together, something has to give. Lines are crossed. Secrets are shared. Hearts shatter.

Who knows?

Maybe they can teach each other something.

Founded on Temptation by Kat Singleton




Title: Founded on Temptation
Series: Mixtape #2
Author: Kat Singleton
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: October 19, 2021


BLURB

This means nothing.

That sentence would become the biggest lie I’ve ever told myself after spending an unforgettable night with Sebastian Compton.

Because he has rules—one night, no strings attached.

It’s easier that way. He travels the world as a bodyguard for his best friend and one of the most famous pop icons alive. I’m merely a glorified coffee-runner, still trying to get noticed by my boss. It would never work between us.

It should have meant nothing.

After all, my best friend schemed to hurt the very man Sebastian was hired to protect—and I knew about it. He shouldn’t want to be near me. We shouldn’t be sneaking around, hiding our feelings from those closest to us.

I shouldn’t want him. He’s arrogant, jealous, and possessive—breaking his rules and my boundaries, claiming me for another night only to leave again.

But now, it means everything.

I never expected more than a single night with him. I didn’t foresee being thrust back together by the product of our lust. It didn’t occur to me that while fighting our feelings, we may have built something worth fighting for.

Most of all, I never thought something so perfect could grow from a relationship that had always been founded on temptation.

EXCERPT

“This is your chance to stop this, Riley.” His words contradict his touch, because as he utters that sentence, his fingers are pushing deeper into my skin.
“What If I don’t want to stop it?” I whisper, reaching out to touch him.
His head snaps back, his fingers wrapping tightly around my wrist. “I do the touching.”
My hand lays limply in his grasp. “But…”
“That’s the rule for tonight. And that’s all this is, one night… typically I don’t—”
“Typically you don’t what?”
“Typically, I don’t do random hookups. It’s just…easier that way.” His voice trails off.
I think his words through, trying to process his admission. Typically, men are the complete opposite—selfish—forgetting all about my needs.
But not with him.
“Why?” I ask.
The hand not buried in my sweatshirt reaches up to caress my cheek. “I don’t want to get into details. Just let me do the touching, okay?”
A brief flash of vulnerability in his brown gaze leaves as quickly as it came. Every curious fiber in my body wants to know why, but now isn’t the time.
The twitch of his finger against my skin pulls me back to the present.
Sebastian leans in closer, close enough to rub the bridge of his nose against my exposed neck. “The things I want to do to you, Riley,” he whispers.
“Show me,” I respond, pulling away briefly so I find his eyes once again. I drag my sweatshirt up and over my head, letting it fall over the side of the couch.
His gaze burns into my bare skin. His tongue peeks through his slightly parted lips as he examines every exposed inch of me.
I’m not wearing anything sexy by any means. My simple black t-shirt bra isn’t meant to seduce, but you’d never know it by the hungry look in his eyes.
My abs clench when he licks his lips hungrily. “Oh, we’re going to have so much fun tonight.”

It all started with a bet.
When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up.
Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property.
We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches.
You could say we got off on the wrong foot.
We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out.
He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work.
I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast.
We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it.
But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof.
Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son.
We were in over our heads in more ways than one.
Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother.
And now the inn was the least of my problems.

Knockout by Jessica Prince

Title: Knockout Series: Whiskey Dolls Author: Jessica Prince Release Date: November 15

Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance

Cover Design: Jill Sava & Jessica Prince

It wasn’t fair that the man I hated with a passion was so freaking gorgeous. Things in Layla Fox’s life were going great. She had a fantastic job, amazing friends, and a killer apartment. There was just one tiny glitch in all that perfect. Her upstairs neighbor was the very definition of tall, dark, and handsome . . . and she hated the man with every cell in her body. Jude Kingsley was the most arrogant jerk she’d ever met, making the fact that she was attracted to him more than a little inconvenient. When the two of them are forced together by Jude’s meddling grandmother, the bitter rivalry between the two feuding neighbors suddenly turns into something very different. And a raw, intense chemistry like theirs is bound to explode if they aren’t careful. **Whiskey Dolls is a series of interconnected, standalone, small town romances.**

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all. Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says. In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand. Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
