Her life began again, with a second chance at love.

Snake, the president of the Notorious Devils, understands guilt. Every time he looks at his pregnant wife, that guilt threatens to consume him.

He’s a new man now. A changed man—or at least that’s what he tells himself.

I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we’re raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

I never thought a pecker would get me in so much trouble.

I mean, sure… if you’re talking about a certain anatomical feature of mine that the ladies just love. Given my bachelor status and appreciation for all things curvy and feminine, I could absolutely see that. But a different pecker is making my life much harder than it needs to be.

My name is Ford Daniels, partner at the law firm of Knight & Payne, and my latest case has me wading through the finer points of peckers—woodpeckers that is. Specifically, the red-cockaded woodpecker. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up but that’s what the sexy-as-hell blonde chained to a tree told me this morning.

Her name is Viveka Jones and she is so much more than a pretty face. She’s got wit, charm, and razor-sharp smarts. Turns out my client is looking to bulldoze the red-cockaded woodpecker’s natural habitat in favor of a multimillion-dollar subdivision and the sexy attorney with legs for days (and days), just happens to be counsel for an animal rights group looking to put a halt to construction.

My client’s pissed, but all I can think about is getting Viveka across the table from me. And then on the table underneath me. Perhaps up against the wall. And then—

Well, let’s just say when it’s all said and done, I’m hoping the red-cockaded woodpecker isn’t the only pecker that gets some attention from Miss Viveka Jones.

Black and White Chapter 1 | Cynthia Rayne

Author’s Note: Apologies, but this hasn’t been proofread yet. Chapter One “How’ve you been, honey?” Magnus Butterfield asked. “Just fine, sugar, thanks for askin’.” Savannah Summers pasted on a smile, even though she inwardly seethed. Magnus treated her like a stripper at a bachelor party. Thankfully, she’d practiced slathering honey all over her words…

Wolves’ Gambit

 
Title: Wolves’ Gambit
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: 15/04/2018
Series: The Free Wolves, Book 3 (stand-alone)
Cover Designer: K.M. Guth
Wolf-shifter Lori Grenville was rescued from near-slavery and a brutal pack leader by the Free Wolves. To pay back the favor, she’s dedicated her life to helping others in the same situation, leading shifters to safety and a new start, risking her life in the process. She’s faced down alphas and has no qualms in undermining pack structure.
Now she’s challenged with the task of restoring an alpha to his rightful place. If she gets it right, she can stop a war from ripping apart two packs and spreading across an entire state. If she fails, she’ll be among the first to die.
There’s still the option of walking away and letting the Jaeger and Destin packs destroy each other. That means she’ll fail in her original mission of rescuing the daughter of the Jaeger alpha before the girl is forced into marriage for political gain.
Lori hasn’t failed in a mission yet. This one may be the exception.
She didn’t have time to shift. Instead, Lori threw herself to the ground and rolled. The wolf missed, but swiveled on its back paws, bunched its muscles, and prepared for a second attack. Without a weapon, she could only hold it off for a few seconds.
            So she did what any human would do. She screamed. Only she dropped the pretense and screamed with her mental voice. The sound of a rabbit’s dying scream. The shrill, high-pitched cry for help didn’t need to be aimed at only one person. It would wake everyone within range. There’d be a lot of headaches in a very short time.
            The wolf stopped in its tracks and shook its head. That was all the time Lori needed. A metal snow shovel had been left leaning against the building after the last snow months ago, and she grabbed it. She gripped it in both hands and swung.
            Her aim was true. The shovel thudded against the side of the wolf’s head and it staggered. But Lori knew of a more vulnerable spot. She adjusted the direction of the next swing. The awkward angle resulted in a less forceful blow, but still, she hit the tender nose.
The wolf snarled, its teeth glistening, and leaped.
            She whirled out the way and swung the shovel at the same time. The blade met the wolf’s front haunches. A cracking sound sent a chill down Lori’s spine. The wooden handle was breaking. She’d only get one more hit. It had to be a good one.
            The wolf heard it too. Out of reach of her makeshift weapon, it paced, tongue hanging from its mouth. Left to right, right to left. Only Lori’s eyes followed it. She watched for the telltale signs. The tightening of muscles, the focusing of the eyes, a lowering of the head. The wolf was toying with her. Her heartbeat kept pace with the wolf’s steps. Too fast.
            But where was the guard? He’d had time to come to her rescue. Was this one of Carlson’s men? She’d been a fool to trust him. He was just another pack leader. Take advantage of those less powerful and discard them when they are no longer useful.
            She wondered how sharp the edge of the blade was. Sharp enough to rip through flesh? There was no time to check. She needed to stay alert for every twitch.
            The charge happened in the blink of an eye. One second he was on the ground, the next flying towards her. She didn’t wait. With a loud cry, she held the shovel straight in front of her like a lance and ran to meet the attack.
SERIES

 

MEET LORI
by P.J. MacLayne
Lori Grenville, the main character of Wolves’ Gambit, sprang from a very minor character in Wolves’ Pawn, the first book of the Free Wolves series. In fact, she existed for only about two pages. But those two pages were enough for me to see that she had potential for so much more. Turns out, she gets a whole book.
At first I’d envisioned her as some sort of super spy. While that was a fun idea, it was wrong. Turns out she’s a woman with a mission, and she’ll do what it takes to get the job done. She sees herself as being on the side of good even if sometimes she needs to resort to actions that might be considered unethical. Or downright illegal.
She’s run rescues successfully many times. But this time she may be in over her head.
Born and raised among the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania, P.J. MacLayne still finds inspiration for her books in that landscape. She is a computer geek by day and a writer by night who currently lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. When she’s not in front of a computer screen, she might be found exploring the back roads of the nearby national forests and parks. In addition to the Free Wolves’ stories, she is also the author of the Oak Grove series.

And a Giveaway! In celebration of the release of Wolves’ Gambit, one or more lucky people will win an e-book version of Wolves’ Pawn, the first book of the series. You can enter here:

Keep From Falling

Title: Keep From Falling
Series: Misfits Book 1
Author: Amy Vanessa Miller
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Release Date: April 13, 2018
At the beginning of her senior year, Bree Porter had everything figured out. She knew who she was, what she wanted, and where she was going.
The only thing she didn’t know was how to tell the world that her childhood bestie, Skylar Hale, was also her secret girlfriend.

But only months before Bree and Skylar are set to start their lives together away from the narrowed minds of Markson Grove, Bree meets Evan Daniels and everything changes.
One glance. That’s all it takes for Bree to begin questioning everything she thought she knew about herself.
Skylar Hale has been running from her past for years. She won’t speak about it to Bree— she won’t acknowledge it at all— because it’s dark and scary and connected to a name that makes her tremble to her core.
Now the perfect life she created with Bree is on the verge of collapse, leaving her haunted by a past she’s desperate to forget and back to a world she never thought she’d see again.

*This book contains violence, coarse language, sexually explicit scenes, drug abuse, and illegal situations. Intended for mature reading audiences only.*

I look to the ground. “What are you doing, Evan?” I ask uneasily.
He sighs. “I don’t know,” he says. “I don’t know what you want. This is really weird for me. Because I know what I want, and I know that you know what it is.”
“What is it you want?” I ask, even though he’s right, I already know the answer.
“To be with you, to kiss you, to touch you. All the time.”
I stand there in silence for a long while, knowing what I want to say but knowing that if I say it, everything will change and I won’t be able to take it back.
“I think I want those things too,” I whisper softly, still looking to the ground.
He takes a deep breath. My words have surprised him and it seems like he’s trying to decide something now. I peer into his eyes, attempting to read him, and the moment that they make contact, his lips are on mine in a breathtaking kiss.
He lets go of my hand in order to place his hands on either side of my face. His lips are hot and moist, and so soft. The minute he opens them slightly, I begin to kiss him back, slowly at first, and then with an urgency I can’t begin to describe.
Evan’s body responds to this urgency right away, and he picks me up off of the ground and sits me on the hood of his car. I wrap my legs around him and I can feel him pressed up against me in a way that makes everything down there tingle. He begins to kiss my neck while caressing my breasts; I throw my head back and let out a gasp.
And then I think of Skylar.
“We can’t do this,” I say as I break the connection and I push him off of me gently.

 

He’s breathing heavily and his cheeks are red. “I know,” he says. “I’m so sorry.”

The Silent Scream

Title: The Silent Scream
Author: Nancy George
Genre: Non-Fiction Short Story
Release Date: April 11, 2018


Sitting in front of my computer at my desk attempting to write this factual story is incredibly difficult.

 


I’m used to writing romance novels about love. It’s all fiction, make-believe, and everything in the end always turns out well. A recipe for success—a happy ever after.

However, this story is my story—it’s real, and it’s raw.

I’m scared and afraid.

I know there are many other people out there like me who are caring for a loved one with a terminal illness.

Some of you are about to make the same journey I’ve been on.

If you are about to read this book, then you’re about to travel on the same journey I’ve just been on, or perhaps you’ve already travelled this road.
I didn’t know what was in front of me when all of this began. 
If you’re in the same situation I was, I hope this book gives you an understanding of what you’re about to go through. I hope it gives you the strength to carry on. 
Your story won’t be exactly the same as mine—no one’s story is ever the same—but the fears, anguish, and emotions will be similar.
I hope you find comfort and strength in my journey, and I hope I can help make your journey a little easier. With knowledge comes power.

God bless you all.
