Excerpt

“Running away?” His deep rumble chafes my skin.

I ignore him and move away, when I hear him drawl, “Didn’t take you for a coward.”

Excuse me? I pause. He’s baiting me. I know he’s trying to get a rise out of me. I should leave without paying him any attention, but my stupid pride doesn’t let me. I spin around and scowl. “What did you say?”

“You heard me.” His grin widens. “You’re leaving because you can’t face the music?”

“Music?” I tilt my head as if listening to the tune playing over the speaker. “The only music I hear is the eighties’ hit by Tina Turner—”

“Remixed by Kygo.”

“Excuse me?”

“She came out of retirement to release the single remixed by Norwegian DJ Kygo.”

I laugh. “You’re kidding, right?”

“I assure you, I am not. You can look it up if you don’t believe me.”

I shake my head. “This entire conversation is insane. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have something urgent I need to take care of.” I turn to leave.

I hear his footsteps behind me a few seconds before he plants his body in front of me with such speed that I almost bump into his wide chest. He’s so massive that he blocks out the rest of the bar behind him. And his scent, sweet baby Jesus, his scent. It’s spice and citrus and something smoky like firewood. I sniff again, fill my lungs, and my head spins. My knees turn to jelly and I stumble. Why am I turning into a klutz around him?

He grips my shoulder to steady me, and once more, pinpricks of heat bleed out from the point of contact.

I freeze; so does he. I pull away, and this time, he lets me go without protest. “Look, I didn’t mean to scare you in any way. I simply want to talk to you.” He raises his hands, palms facing toward me.

“I don’t want to talk to you.” I glance down, only so I can avoid those piercing gray eyes of his, and end up taking in his jeans. Hoo boy, does he fill out those jeans, or what? They might have been blue at one point in time, but the color is almost white now. The fabric is threadbare at his knees and at the edges of the pant legs. And his feet, OMG, his booted feet are huge. A size thirteen at least. Which means, the size of what he’s packing must be quite substantial. I raise my gaze to his crotch and almost groan at the column outlined over the left side of him.

“I believe this is when I say, my face is up here?” he drawls. I flush. Sweat beads my hairline. Is it hot in here or am I having a hot flash decades before going into menopause? I gotta get out of here before I say or do something to embarrass myself further.

“I believe this is when I excuse myself.” I duck past him, but he moves with me, so I have no choice but to pause.

“You have to stop doing this,” I say through gritted teeth.

“You’ve got to stop trying to escape me.” He chuckles.

“I’m not trying to escape you; I’m trying to leave,” I snarl.

“From where I am, it looks like you’re trying to run because you are scared of what you’re going to find out if you stay,” he retorts.

“Oh yeah?” I tip up my chin, all the way up, and then some more, so I can see his face. Gosh, he’s tall. I mean, I had a sense of his height when he was sitting down, but standing, he’s an absolute behemoth. He’s possibly the biggest brute of a man I’ve ever seen. His beaten-up leather jacket stretches across his shoulders. I can’t miss how his biceps stretch the sleeves, hinting at powerful muscles underneath. The overhead light bounces off of his longer-than-fashionable length hair, picking out hints of brown among the coal dark strands. A hint of a tattoo peeks out from under the neckline of his T-shirt. With his day-old stubble, he comes across as someone who’ll always look effortlessly sexy. A look that adds to his appeal. A look which I definitely don’t fancy. Not at all.

“And what is it I’m going to find out?” I scowl.

“That the two of us have something in common.”

“We have nothing in common.” I toss my hair over my shoulder.

“We sure do.” He bends his knees and peers into my eyes. “We want to fuck each other’s brains out.”

Without a Hitch by Avery Maxwell

Title: Without a Hitch
Author: Avery Maxwell
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 27, 2022


“A wedding is the beginning of the end.” —Lochlan Blaine
Look, I’ve seen firsthand what marriage does to a man. I’m not interested. You want to take the leap? Fine. But have the decency to elope. Leave me out of it.

And then I see her. The happily-ever-after-loving bridesmaid at the wedding I couldn’t get out of.

This flower-wielding bombshell is all wrong for me. But one night together is enough to convince me that she could be the answer to my problem. All I need is three weeks with her…

“Weddings are magic.” —Tilly Camden
I love love. And weddings. That’s how I land the best job in the world: professional bridesmaid. Brides hire me to make sure their big day goes off without a hitch…usually while dressed in taffeta.

I can’t wait until I find the one. The cranky, three-piece-suit-wearing Adonis who smirks at the idea of happily ever after is definitely not him. Lochlan Blaine has “heartbreaker” written all over him.

I should know better. But when a panty-melting one-night stand turns into an offer I can’t refuse, what’s a bridesmaid to do? It’s only three weeks. It’s just business.

I can’t possibly get my heart broken. Can I?








An American Romance Author, Avery loves wine, sexy stories, pizza, and her family.

Avery is a hot mess of a mom to four wildly sweet mini-humans and two fur babies. She spends far too much time in her pj’s and trips over herself multiple times a day. Accident-prone is probably a fair assessment.

Having grown up in small-town Vermont, Avery often jokes about being the most naïve person in the room. Luckily, she’s used that small-town charm to write character-driven contemporary romances that have you laughing one minute, and crying the next.

When she isn’t refereeing (three little boys require a lot of whistle blowing), or cuddled up with her real-life Prince Charming, you can find her tucked away with a bottle of wine (because those steamy scenes don’t write themselves!), or coaching her daughter’s basketball team.

Avery now lives in North Carolina where she brings life, love, and a happily ever after to every character she writes.

Summer of Chloe by Cata Ree

Title: Summer of Chloe
Series: Summers in Seaside Collection #7
Author: Cata Ree
Genre: Enemies to Lovers/Young Adult
Release Date: July 27, 2022


I’m finally finished with High School and most of the people in it. I have a few friends but I’m sick of being called names and feeling like an outcast.

Ok.. so.. I’m good at school, so..I work in a bookstore, so.. I love to read, and sure.. I can talk about books all day long, especially while helping someone find just the right book to read next.

Since when is being passionate a bad thing? Well, Clay Connelly sure seems to find fault in everything I do. To him I’m just “Nerd Girl”.

Since the day my mom and I moved here to Seaside, Oregon he seems to have made it his life’s mission to harass me and try getting under my skin. I am so done with that!

Despite my best efforts and against my own better judgement, my heart still pounds when he is near and I can’t seem to help wanting to kiss him and slap him at the same time. If that wasn’t confusing enough, his penetrating grey eyes dive straight into my soul. I can’t help but wonder what he sees there and why he wants to look in the first place.

After a bold and probably foolish move on my part, Clay is determined to haunt me and make this summer unforgettable.

Little did we both know, but this summer would indeed be unforgettable in every meaning of the word. Just not the way he had planned!

She grabs the worn copy from me and hands me a newer looking one, “You can borrow this one, if you’d like to read it. This is a classic and will always be my

favourite one. Until the day I find my own Mr. Darcy, everyone must live up to him.”

 

“Mr. Darcy, huh?” I say turning towards her, promises made to her mom fast forgotten, I take a step to close the gap between us. Changing our positions, I push her back to her bookshelf and place both my hands on each side of her head. My insides burn with need to get another taste of this delicious

creature in front of me.

 

Lifting one hand off it’s resting place, I run a finger down her cheek all the way to where her collarbone meets her neck, “Can Mr. Darcy do this?” I taunt, her pupils enlarge in response. 

 

Tilting my head, I decide to replace my finger with the tip of my tongue, “Does Mr. Darcy feel like this?” I tease, her breath hitches, chest rising and falling up against mine in a rapid speed. 

 

I place an open mouth kiss to her collarbone “Can Mr. Darcy make you shake with need?” I growl in her ear, earning myself a needy moan.

 

Her hands tangle in my hair, as she pulls me to herself making us one, “Mr. Darcy has nothing on the way you make me feel, Clay,” she says in a breathy way and crushes her lips to mine.

Acts of Commitment by NT Anderson

Title: Acts of Commitment
Series: The Act Series #3
Author: NT Anderson
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 15, 2022
Cover Design: Marlena Mozgawa



“… a sweeping love story of epic proportions. Nat and J are more than relationship goals; they are relationship gods. Anderson hit it out of the park. This is her best work yet.” ~ 5 Star Amazon Review

What if endings really are…new beginnings?

It all started with a simple need. A desire to seek closure on a passionate crush that burned within me for decades. Incendiary memories drove me to the doorstep of the sexy and mysterious Jack Perry.

That fateful night led to another, exactly one year later, where the backdrop to a dreamlike romance was exposed…and confessions were made.

But that is all in the past. A closed book, complete with an ending and an understanding from both of us that we had our moment. Cherished and full of love…but over.

However, fate has intervened, bringing all that came before sharply into focus. Now I must decide…should I dwell on the past or embrace the future? Fear threatens to hold me back from the man who is the sentry at the doorway to my every fantasy. Will I let it keep me from a love more passionate than I could ever have imagined?

Acts of Commitment, the epic conclusion to the fateful Acts series, is coming soon! PreOrder it today!




 


NT Anderson has lived in multiple countries and states and is currently hunkered down in the Endless Mountain Region of the Northeast US. Her chosen professional path was restaurant management and hospitality services until 2009 when she turned her passion for writing into a career as a content creator. In 2019, she took it several steps farther by diving into the world of fiction.

Nikki can usually be found keeping odd hours, spending time with family and friends, talking to the characters in her head via candlelight, and plotting her next adventure. Several furbabies keep her on her toes, including two spoiled dogs, a pudgy cat, and a feisty horse.

She fancies herself to be a pirate, especially on Saturday nights when she breaks out the rum.

Fourth Wheel by Abby Millsaps




Title: Fourth Wheel
Author: Abby Millsaps
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: July 21, 2022


BLURB

Maddie

I’ll admit it: I knew exactly who he was when I walked into The Oak that night.

I probably should have just left him alone. But I was bored. And he’s gorgeous, just like his brother. How was I supposed to resist?

The kiss we shared was scorching hot. But it was nothing compared to the intensity of his anger when he realized who I was, and who I’m related to.

His hostility fuels me. His resistance makes me push harder. He made this into a game I’m determined to win.

Whether he likes it or not, I’ve officially set my sights on Dempsey Haas.

Dempsey

He called her Fourth Wheel. There was a familiarity between them that should have told me she was off limits. But there was just something about that girl.

Something familiar.

Something forbidden.

Something so damn tempting.

Her timing is impeccable. I’ve never felt more lonely or listless in my life.

I’m not looking for a relationship, or even a fling. Especially not with someone seven years younger who happens to be related to the two people my brother hates most.

But the way my entire body responded to her when she pushed me against that clock tower and kissed me? That’s a moment that’ll stay with me forever.

I had my fun. Now I have to lock it down.
