Craving Hearts Book 2

by Liz Durano

Genre: Contemporary Romance

He’s gorgeous, charming, and barely knows I exist… until I become his fake fiancee and for the next thirty days, he’ll do everything to prove to his father that he’s a changed man or risk getting cut off from the family fortune. But when the line between what’s real and pretend gets blurred, where do we draw the line and end the charade?

Giana
It’s not easy working for billionaire heir Bryce Holden III, not when all he ever does is party and party some more all while I make sure all his to-dos on his To Do list get done.

But when he botches an important presentation after a wild night on the town, his father issues him an ultimatum: straighten up or get cut off from the family fortune.

So he proposes we pretend to be engaged for the next 30 days while he straightens out his life and in return, he’ll take care of my grandmother’s medical expenses. It’s a win-win proposition and as long as we lay low, thirty days will go by fast.

But when his mother insists on planning the wedding of the century, where do I draw the line and put a stop to the charade?

Bryce
When my father issues his ultimatum to settle down or get cut off from the family fortune, the last thing I expect is to hear him mention my assistant’s name.

Did he really mean Giana, my plain Jane assistant who just happens to be a whiz with blueprints and LEED documentation? The same Giana who’s always made me look good while expertly disappearing in the background?

So I give my dad exactly what he wants: I get engaged to the only woman he’s ever approved of.
Sure, it’s fake, and with everyone getting what they want from the arrangement whether it’s getting my dad’s very rare seal of approval to a hotel expansion that’ll exceed every green building rating in the world, what’s the worst thing that could happen?

Liz wrote her first multi-chapter story when she was in 8th grade and it almost got her kicked out of school because of NSFW content. But the principal made her a deal. She wouldn’t tell Liz’s parents if she agreed to sign up for Poetry Club. Now Poetry Club wasn’t as cool as Drama Club but it was better than her parents finding out about her steamy writerly pursuits.

These days, Liz writes women’s fiction, romance, and erotica. At least she’s too old to get kicked out of school for that.

Charity case

Orphan

I was all those things.

Years after my parents died, I was still being bullied, and it was all led by my cousins.

They hated me for years as children, and moving into their house didn’t make them change their minds about me.

I was counting down the days until I could finally get away from every single person in this town.

Until there was one person I wasn’t so sure I wanted to leave.

Reid

My life since age 7 revolved around football and what it would take for me to get into the NFL.

I didn’t have time for girls or parties.

I had never been tempted by anything that could take my mind away from the sport.

Until I walked into my new school on my first day of senior year.

One look was enough to change every plan I’d made for my future.

It wasn’t long before we both realized that someone didn’t like that we had found each other.

Hi!

I guess you can say I have a passion for romance.

You will most often find me with a book in front of my face, whether I’m in the middle of writing one or taking a break by reading one of my favorite authors.

I love my family and my pets. I need quiet time to recharge and I’d rather be deep in the middle of woods than in the middle of a city. Yeah, I don’t people well.

I hope you enjoy my stories. I put all my heart into each of them and they are truly my book babies.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Faces of Saint by Kristi Pelton




Title: The Faces of Saint
Author: Kristi Pelton
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Sommer Stein
Release Date: June 6, 2022


BLURB

She fought to save the world until someone wanted her dead.

A well-executed, deliberate escape.
Alone for forty days on the ocean.
Calling out over the radio night after night.
Until…an unfamiliar voice answers.

Her escape was planned. Everything about her life was planned…except for him.

Jenna, a young virologist with Asperger’s, discovers a deadly secret. On the run from the biotech lab where she has built her life’s work, Jenna is forced to leave behind everyone she loves and watch as they fall, one by one, to a nameless murderer. After seeking refuge on a sailboat and hiding deep offshore, she sends her brother a series of urgent messages. When finally, a voice answers back, it’s not the one she’s been expecting. Will this man be her savior or her downfall?

She was not part of his plan.

Saint, an ex-Navy SEAL, has spent the last year recovering from a near-fatal injury during active duty. Unable to face a world he no longer feels part of, he has chosen a life of exile and loses himself in shame and disappointment, giving up on everything . . . until he hears an exquisite voice, crying out night after night on the radio. The longer Saint listens, the more convinced he becomes that he knows exactly who Jenna is and what he must do to help her. But once she has come back to shore, back to him, Saint’s agenda grows muddled, and his secrets begin to unravel.

Jenna must survive if there is any hope of protecting the world from the deadly secret locked within her mind. Her decision to trust a voice—to trust a Saint—will kill her or save everyone. But what she didn’t see coming, what may prove most deadly, is who stands behind it all.






AUTHOR BIO

Just the fact that someone may be reading my ‘bio’ thrills me. What does one say in an author bio? Well, I LOVE to write! Sometimes characters talk to me in my head (in a non-psychotic way) and I have to get what they are saying out on paper! So, here we are! ☺

I am recently retired and haven’t a clue what to do yet. I’m always a full-time wife, and I spend the majority of the time helping my two favorite sons navigate through life and become the best humans they can be.

I am a huge fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, the Oregon Ducks, the Chicago Cubs (I have a dog named Wrigley) and the Kansas City Chiefs.

I’m terribly addicted to music—ALLLLL kinds and driving in the car with the sunroof open and radio turned up helps the creative juices flow.

I am deliciously addicted to queso and cupcakes; but even with that…I like to slowly murder my body with CrossFit. I’m annoyingly sarcastic. For real.

Smartphones Don’t Give Hugs

 

A Guide Out of Loneliness

 

Nonfiction

Date Published: 04-22-2022

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Do you have a thousand Facebook friends and yet you feel alone?

In a world saturated by instant gratification, we have forgotten how to foster lasting human connections. Although technology allows us to keep in touch with people who live on the other side of the world, loneliness is at an all-time high. Why is that? Well, for one thing, smartphones do not give hugs.

Dr. H. David Burstein takes an in-depth look at loneliness, its modern causes, and how it may be alleviated. He has found that loneliness is inextricably woven into the fabric of our human condition. Our need for connection highlights the biological fact that we are, first and foremost, social creatures. Feelings of loneliness act as a light on an emotional fuel gauge, alerting us to our need for accessing personal or social energy.

This thorough investigation into our yearning for social connection offers many solutions that will empower us to show up more powerfully in order to fulfill this basic human need. And these solutions begin with an introspective excavation of ourselves, our emotions, and our search for purpose and meaning.

Compelling, insightful, and thought-provoking, this is a go-to guide for a more fulfilled life.

Tales from the Trail

 

Stories from the Oldest Hiker Hostel on the Appalachian Trail

 

Nonfiction / Self-Help / Spirituality

Date Published: February 14, 2022

Publisher: MindStir Media


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

During the 2020 pandemic, one thing held true: Scores of people headed out for a day hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT) as if being in the woods, immersed in beauty and mystery, immunized them against an invisible enemy. The AT became a hospital for souls locked up in quarantine, needing to breathe, stretch, and be nourished by the earth beneath their feet.

For decades, the AT has been a sanctuary for seekers, the tired and the lost; those hungry for renewal, the broken and the grieving; and those who want to face and answer questions they have lugged around with them in invisible backpacks. Questions like, what is next for me? Is there a God? Should I live or end it all? How can I liberate my life from what weighs it down? How can I forgive God?

This book pays tribute to those who dare such a grueling and soul-satisfying adventure. It tells the tales of those on a pilgrimage through insightful conversations and encounters, exploring and revealing what angels the hikers wrestle with in the wilderness who call out to name them again. This collection unveils the spirituality of any such journey in sometimes humorous, sometimes heart-wrenching portraits.

Tales from the Trail explores what it means to be human.

Cursed with a voice that can kill, Aariyaa Milan is a mermaid princess denied her song. An outcast among even the magical Mer, the only thing she desires is to be accepted, but fate has other plans. When she unexpectedly saves a human from drowning, Aariyaa soon finds herself irresistibly drawn to the handsome Jason, oblivious to the fulfillment of a curse that she has unknowingly set in motion.

Shortly removed from a broken engagement, the last thing Jason Michaels expected was meeting a real-life mermaid. Between an ex that won’t quit, and a colleague determined to steal his job, Jason has his hands full. But when his chance encounter with Aariyaa leads towards forbidden love, things go from stressful to even more complicated.

Forced into a betrothal with a neighboring Prince, Aariyaa now has her grandmother’s prophecies of doom, to deal with as well. With time running out, Aariyaa is forced to leave her watery world in search of the one human that might be able to help her break the curse and her engagement…Jason. But between Jason’s amnesia and the unholy alliance of his colleague and ex determined to separate Aariyaa and Jason, breaking a curse might be the lesser of two evils.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

There, less than a hundred yards away waited the reason for his heart rate to suddenly increase.

There she was.

His mermaid.

Lying near the water’s edge, her sparkling reddish-orange tail rested in the water. His eyes traveled upwards to her flat belly and then to her full, lush breasts. His mouth involuntarily started to water a bit as he stared at the chocolate-tipped mounds. She was breathtaking. With dark, wavy hair spread out around her on the sand, and the sound coming from her rosebud-shaped mouth, Jason seemed lost. Not a song, but a soulful sweet hum came from her lips drawing him in closer. Sad, but beautiful.

Jason inched forward again, and then the sound stopped.

Abruptly she sat up, her ebony hair whipping around as her attention focused on him. Her wide amethyst eyes pinned him in place as if the weight of the world held him there. They were at a standstill, of sorts. Him watching her, marveling at the wonder she was and her watching him as if he were the wonder between them. As if she were seeing him for the first time. Jason took a step towards her, but she moved faster. Crawling back into the water and away from him.

She was trying to get away from him.

“Please.”

Barely a whisper, but if she heard it, she didn’t slow her escape. Using her upper body, she propelled herself into the water, becoming one with the sea. If she left now, he was certain that he’d never see her again.

And that he wasn’t ready for.

Without another thought, Jason ran towards the water and dove in after her. His vision wasn’t the best without his glasses, but it didn’t matter. He had to go after her, or at least try. The waters enveloped him, as he prepared to dive down after her like he, too, was a creature of the sea. She was ahead of him, almost out of his eyesight if not for the shimmering of her tail that, like a beacon, drew him to her. He swam as fast and as hard as he could, but it didn’t matter. She was too fast for him to catch up.

And then an ocean current had him, pulling him out deeper to sea.

EXCERPT:

“Briony?”

Cass’s voice yanked her out of her melancholy state. She loved the way he said her name, the syllables rolling off his tongue in an exotic accent.

“Sorry.” She gave him a quick smile. “It was fine.”

Most people accepted that answer, didn’t press for more out of courtesy or disinterest. But Cass stared at her, eyes probing. Her smile slipped as she shifted on her feet.

“What?”

“You’re an open book.”

She frowned. “Oh?”

He leaned across the bar. The scarred countertop still separated them. All she had to do was lean back to keep space between them.

But she didn’t. No, she just stood there as he laid a finger on her rapidly beating pulse at the base of her throat. Amazing how much fire one graze of a fingertip could ignite, she thought desperately past the swirling rush of blood roaring in her ears. The first time he’d ever touched her, a mere tap of his finger, and she could barely stop from swooning like a teenager with her first crush.

“The pulse in your throat. Your tongue darting out to touch your lips.” Despite the uptick in volume as the band transitioned into a raucous rendition of the latest country song, his words wound around her, a seductive spell. His eyes dropped down to her mouth. A wild temptation seized her, made her sway forward before common sense yanked her back. Had she truly almost kissed a customer? A most likely very wealthy, very handsome customer who would be leaving any day now?

Author Bio:

Emmy’s interest in romance can be traced back to her love of Nancy Drew books, when she tried to solve the mysteries of her favorite detective while rereading the romantic chapters with Ned Nickerson. Fast-forward a few years when she discovered a worn copy of “A Rose in Winter” by Kathleen Woodiwiss on her mother’s bookshelf, and she was hooked. Over 20 years later, Harlequin Presents made her dream come true by offering her a contract for her first book.

When Emmy isn’t writing or reading, she’s chasing around her baby boy, feeding her menagerie of fur babies or carving out a little time on her front porch with her firefighter hubby.
