What do a single rose in a crystal vase, a box of tomatoes, a knitting needle, a basketball, and a tingling earlobe have in common? They are all signals to Dr. Laura Murillo to live life to the fullest every day. A high-energy, results-focused change agent in the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) space, her undeniable passion for life stands as the foundation for her personal and professional brand.
As President and CEO of the award-winning Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, she has the uncanny ability to see a situation, not for what it is, but for what it can be. In Lead in Life, People. Passion. Persistence: Succeed in the New Era of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Murillo guides readers through the incredible, sometimes devastating, and victorious experiences that comprise her success—from earning a doctorate while pregnant, parenting a toddler, managing a parent’s illness, and working full time, to hosting multiple TV and radio shows in English and Spanish concurrently, and being appointed to the Washington, DC Federal Reserve Board’s Community Advisory Council, and more.
She uses her lived experiences as the daughter of immigrants, a woman, an executive, a media producer and host to inform her perspectives and insights as an authority on DEI, guiding corporations, organizations, and institutions to adopt a genuine culture of DEI. In this new era of DEI, corporations must make a solid, lasting commitment to full representation, fairness, and inclusion of all voices in every decision, at every level of a corporation, all the time.
Lead in Life illustrates why everyone in a corporation has value and a voice that must be heard.

Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Reaching for my hand, he pulls me up to his side. Bending down to nibble on my collarbone, he trails sweet, warm kisses up to my ear. “Please say you’ll stay with me tonight. I’ve missed you. I want to wake up with you in my arms in the morning.”
I feel bad for thinking it, but it’d feel odd to sleep with him in his marital bed. I know there is no love loss for Sophia. It’s just my silly mind games holding me back. I can see he senses my hesitation and pulls back in question. “I feel really silly, Nick. Is there anything of Sophia’s in your room? I feel a little weird about─”
“Baby, there’s nothing left of her here. She took all of the bedroom furniture. I moved the guest room furniture in my room once the other stuff was gone.”
“Will you… uh, will you tell me what happened between the two of you one day?” I ask a bit fearfully, remembering how upset he was the last time I brought this up.
“Yes. I’ll tell you the whole sordid mess. But I’m not ruining our first date with that horror story. Now, I’m anxious to get to bed. You coming?”
Nick, I don’t know if I can do that again.” I cringe. “I’m honestly a little sore.”
“No!” I blurt. “I hope you’ll do that again.” I grin. “I just couldn’t handle it again tonight.”
“It’s okay, Kat. I just want to hold you.” He lets out a small laugh, and I look at him with curiosity. “I was worried I blew my dick off after that romp in the study.” He chuckles. “Will you take a shower with me? Then we can get some sleep. I know you’ve had a long day, and I’ve got to be up early for work tomorrow.”
I follow him up the stairs of his massive abode and admit I feel a bit out of place here. My whole house could practically fit in his garage. I’m not sure how I feel about his moving to a place near me. I love him and want him close. Yet, if he moves into a new place, we may find ourselves stuck in an unending cycle of sleepovers. He may never want to live together. Heck, did I miss my chance? Maybe I should’ve let him stay with me.
Reaching his bedroom, I walk in and notice the furnishings are grand. This was in a guest room? I cannot contemplate the money he must make to afford this. Over-the-top opulence isn’t my style. My mother would be in heaven, though. My thoughts are swiftly placed on the back burner as he reaches for the hem of my dress and begins to pull it overhead.
“Wait.” I grab his hand and notice he looks alarmed. “It’s a wrap dress,” I say, placing his hand on the tie at my waist and encouraging him to give it a little tug.
A megawatt smile spreads across his face as he pulls, and the garment falls open to reveal only my sheer, demi-cup bra as I’m now devoid of the tiny panties. Dropping to his knees, he slowly places tender kisses down my legs. He glides his tongue from the inside of my knees down to the black pumps I’m wearing, and I recall his fascination with my wearing shoes and nothing else. He sits up placing open-mouthed kisses all over my thighs, my hips, and my belly.
“Come on, Dr. Barnes. The shower’s calling,” I tease.
“Yeah, yeah. But only if I get to walk behind you in those shoes.”
Entering the magnificent marble bathroom, I stand by the sink as he readies the shower and finds clean towels for our departure. Kicking off my heels, I walk into the hot stream and tilt my head back to allow the water to coat my hair and back. Nick is suddenly behind me, lathering my skin and washing my hair. I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven. This man is so adoring. It’s awful that in this blissful state, I can’t help but wonder why on earth Sophia would’ve left him.
I turn toward Nick and rub body wash over his pecs and abs, my fingertips reveling in the ridges as they slide up and down his hard body. He may have been protesting too much about our earlier exploits and the concern for the health of his penis, as it appears to be functioning just fine at the moment. I’m dying to reach down and stroke him, but I know this man too well. He’ll turn the tables and make this all about pleasing me, and I don’t think my tender girl parts could handle that at the moment. I calculate the best way to enact my plan and wrap my arms around his neck, pushing my wet body into his.
“God, you feel good,” he moans into my ear.
“I’m getting tired, Nick,” I lie.
“Okay, kitten. Let me make sure I’ve gotten all of the soap off.” He drops one more pass of his hands down my back and cups my ass before another groan escapes him. He reaches over and turns off the water before darting out of the shower to grab a towel for me. Before toweling himself off, he grabs the other towel and begins wrapping my long hair with it. Is this man for real?
I follow him into the bedroom and watch as he finishes drying off just before dropping the towel to the ground, pulling back the covers, and climbing inside. He rolls toward me, holding out his arm in invitation. Repeating his earlier performance, I drop the towel on the floor and climb in beside him. He pulls me into his warm body, and I can’t keep my hands to myself any longer.
Reaching down, I grab ahold of his thick erection and stroke the velvety soft skin that sheaths the steel surface beneath. He’s so masculine. His cock is veiny and thick, and I decide I have him just where I want him to bestow my thankfulness for this amazing evening.
Blame It On The Eggnog by Jami Davenport releases on November 9th!
Get It on All Platforms
I’m a single father, and I’ve had all the change I can handle: Retirement from the sport I love, a crazy ex-wife in prison, and five kids who need me more than ever. I don’t have time for a relationship, let alone one with the interfering mother of the best player on the hockey team I’m coaching. She’s annoying as hell, but she’s also equally on my mind.
I’m a hockey mom and proud of it. I’m also the over-protective mother of a talented daughter hell-bent on playing with the boys. I’m determined that my daughter gets a shot at her dream despite her gender, even if it means butting heads with the team’s rigid and hot AF coach. I have no intention in falling for this brooding man with a houseful of children, but sometimes life doesn’t stick to the plan.
We wanted to blame it on the eggnog, but there’s no denying our chemistry. Can two single parents find love and healing in the magic of a Garland Grove Christmas, or will our complicated lives ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to us?
Garland Grove is the creation of four friends and USA Today bestsellers: Jami Davenport, Kat Mizera, Kelly Jamieson, and Tess Thompson. Journey with us to the quaint town of Garland Grove set in the mountains of British Columbia as our characters find true love when they’re least expecting it.

She has no time for romance.
He’s not looking for love.
Neither sees the slap shot life sends their way.
Shannon Mackenna’s life revolves around her family, with her 4 year old daughter at the center. She knows first hand how life can change in an instant. Her parents’ unexpected death taught her never to take things for granted.
She lives with no regrets—not even the one-night-stand with a minor league hockey player that resulted in a surprise pregnancy. When she tried to contact him, he denied even recognizing her and Shannon vowed to raise her daughter on her own.
Cliff “Cam” Camden embraced the bad-boy-athlete persona the moment he was drafted. He enjoyed all of the perks and has long stopped counting notches on his hockey stick.
Now, Cam wants more than off-ice conquests. It’s time to put his career first. He’s not looking for distractions—until he meets the beautiful, sassy owner of Shamrock Fitness. Intrigued by the elusive, private woman, Cam hopes for the chance of something more.
Shannon fears her past has collided with her carefully scripted life but she finds it difficult to resist Cam’s devilish smile and brilliant silver-blue eyes. His thoughtfulness outshines his obvious sex appeal, and every time she sees him, her heart skips a beat—and not just because of the way his touch lights up her whole body.
Neither denies the mutual attraction, but Shannon must protect her secret at all costs—even if it means walking away from her happily ever after.
**Timely Assist is a standalone book in the Tampa Suns Hockey series. This sweet and spicy full-length novel can be read on its own—no cliffhanger, no cheating and a guaranteed Happily Ever After.
