Book Blitz: A Teaspoon of Trouble by Shirley Jump



Buy links

Type-A chef Carolyn Henderson has walked away from her job at a trendy NYC restaurant after an abrupt family tragedy. Now, as a guardian to her four-year-old niece, Emma, and a very disobedient mutt – kids and dogs are so not her skill set – moving back to Marietta, Montana seems the best temporary option. But when confronted by her parents’ declining health, Carolyn has to face reality. And she’s going to need some serious help. So who better to ask than Matthew West, a blast from her high school past… and as hunky and helpful as ever.

Vet – and very eligible, if reluctant, Bachelor – Matthew West can’t believe his luck when his high
school crush stumbles through his door. Dogs, kids, and gorgeous damsels in distress. Carolyn
needs help with the pup, and he needs help whipping up delicious concoctions for the Bachelor
Bake-Off. So she wants to make a deal: dog obedience lessons for cooking tips… but Matthew
wants to broker quite a bit more…


SNIPPETS:
1. Matt kept on looking at the dog, because every time his gaze went to Carolyn, his heart did that same skip-beat. She had let her hair grow longer, and it curled around her shoulders. She still had the same elegant features he remembered. He knew if she put her hair up, that he would be able to see the long lines of her neck, the curve of her shoulders. When they’d been together, his favorite place to kiss her was in that small divot at the base of her neck. Just thinking about that sent his mind down some southern paths.

2. Damn. He still wanted her. Maybe it was the memories whispering through his mind, or the knowledge that they were both adults now, and anything they did together would be that much better, but desire started to simmer inside him all the same.
He shifted a little closer, inches away from her. “I really didn’t do anything.”
“You did a lot,” she said, but the words were a whisper. Her gaze dropped to his mouth, then moved back to his eyes. “Are you going to kiss me?”
“Do you want me to?”
“I think it would be…” her gaze dropped to his lips again and held there for one long, hot second “…an exceedingly bad idea.”
“Because…”
“Because we broke up years ago and I’m not staying here and we have to work together and…” She shook her head and backed up, shifting into serious Carolyn as easily as changing her shirt. “And I’m not getting wrapped up in this fairy tale again. We both know that’s not real life.”
Then she called the dog to her again, snapped on his leash, and said goodbye to Matt. He watched her go, and cursed himself for getting wrapped up in her spell.
Lesson learned. Again.

Blitz: Like a F*cking Lady by Quinn


-THEO SOLOMON-

Talia Newman is a goddess who has curves any man would go crazy for. She's sassy, sexy and smart. She's also a pain my ass...

I want her to warm my bed and share my life forever—but the minx is too stubborn to bend to my will.

When my past comes back to haunt me, my integrity and our relationship are sorely tested. For once in my life, I fear that I may lose the most important thing to me.

I'll do whatever it takes to protect what's mine and punish those who threaten it…
*In order to get the full sexy experience, reading the first book is highly recommended*






Excerpt:

(subject to edit)

I unzip my trousers, my underwear and socks following after, and dump them next to my discarded shirt. After rolling my shoulders back, easing the stiffness that has started to settle, I lean down and press a kiss on her forehead. Again, I wait. She’s either going to wake up and scream profanities at me or if I try to get into bed without her realizing, she could kick me on the balls. Both of which have happened before. A twitch in my jaw reminds me of that one night she threw a right hook, which prompted me to see my dentist the next day. Talia’s eyes flutter open, and I smile at her.

“Theo,” she says in a sleepy voice.

“Hey, baby.” Only then do I slip in bed with her, sliding my hand over her soft curves and burying my nose in her hair. My whole body aches but her warmth soothes me. “Sorry I made you wait.”

She snuggles closer to me. “It’s okay. I took it out on your vintage collection.”

“I saw,” I tell her with a smile against her neck. What I really want to say is what’s mine is hers. But from early on, I’ve discovered Talia doesn’t want any talk of that kind. She continues to assert her independence, even though moving in with me makes perfect sense. Talia continues to argue otherwise.

“Is it morning?”

“Yes.” I continue to explore her under the sheets and nearly lose my mind when I reach heaven on earth. And it’s bare. I stroke over her sex; she moans. “I like this,” I whisper low and gruff in her ear as I circle her clit with my thumb. I’m hard and ready. Judging by the wetness between her thighs, so is she.

“I thought you’d like it.” She nips at my lips while she lifts her back and pushes into my hand.

I spread her slick heat over her folds and devour her mouth in a deep kiss as I plunge one finger inside. I want nothing more than to fill her with my cock, but it’s been quite a while since we’ve made love and I fear that as soon as I’m balls deep in her, it will be over too soon. She bucks when I add another finger. “I missed you.”

Talia’s lips curve into a smile and her eyes light up. “Me too.” She moans again as I thrust my fingers faster.

I kiss along her neck, whispering against her smooth skin as I make my way down that I’ve missed every part of her. All of her. Her fingers curl over my shoulders, pushing me, guiding me, urging me for more. Each of my movements cause me pain and I groan, which she takes as a noise of appreciation. Any other time it would be. But I’m a man with a mission, and hell will have to freeze over before I let this moment pass us by. I must have her now, taste her on my tongue. Fuck her until she rolls her eyes back and her toes are numb from pleasure. I push the sheets aside and groan again. Except this time, it is one of blinding lust. Her pussy, pink, bare, wet waits for me.

“Have mercy,” I mutter under my breath. My dick hardens even more at the beautiful sight. I’ll take Talia any way, any how, but that bare pussy is my fucking kryptonite. Before I can delve in, her phone beeps on the table next to the bed. Talia’s knee nearly misses my face when she moves up.

“Oh sorry.”

“Don’t answer it, babe,” I beg. Everything is on pause.

“Let me just check who it is. It might be Anya waking me up. We’re supposed to meet today.”

“Talia,” I warn her, deepening my voice. My eyes narrowing at her. The minx just bites down her lip then smiles wide as she reaches for her phone. “You asked for it.” I nudge her thighs back on the bed, spreading her legs and pressing them down with my shoulders as I settle between them.

New Release
Author: Cassie-Ann L. Miller
Title: Dirty Stranger


Blurb

Isla

I'm paying alimony to my idiot ex-husband, my business hardly makes enough to keep the lights on and I'm literally holding my car together with duct tape. 

Scratch that, I'm holding my life together with duct tape. 

So I won't go on a date with the mysterious, new-in-town barista who makes my morning soy hazelnut latte just the way I like it.

He'd better stop trying to hypnotize me with those honey eyes and those bulging shoulders that stretch the jersey of his coffee shop uniform, because I have enough on my plate and the last thing I need is yet another liability.

Reuben

The cinnamon-haired yoga chick who orders the soy hazelnut latte every morning won't give me a shot. She thinks I'm just some college boy with student loans trying to get in her pants. 

Assumptions, assumptions, assumptions...

Well, she's right about one thing. From the moment she first sauntered into this coffee shop with her long legs and her sad eyes, I've wanted to toss her onto the polished wooden counter and show her just how much of a man I am. There's so much more to me than meets the eye. 

I'm just trying to make her fall for me before my secrets make it to town.

"Dirty Stranger" is book three in the "Dirty Suburbs", a series of full-length, stand-alone romantic comedies about the residents of small town Illinois.





Available Exclusively on Amazon
$0.99 or Free with KU

When I told him to go to hell, I never realized it would be a trip for two.

All I wanted was luck—the good kind. I’d lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancĂ©. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man—tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn’t want forever.

I barely remember the words he whispered under the veil of sin and seduction. I didn’t believe in Satan, God, Heaven or Hell. I thought he was kidding. A figment. A dream.

I was wrong. With one, breathless yes, my fate was sealed.

Businessman by day, demon by night, Leo Weston now owns my soul in exchange for good luck. Time is ticking as he works to secure my mother’s soul, too. Somehow, I have to take him down despite him being so damned gorgeous, glib, and devious. Will my gift of twisted luck be enough to save her and protect my heart?

Book Blitz: Cruel and Unusual by ce wilson







Malcolm Davenport is serving time.

On a remote island in Alaska, Malcolm is part of Project Isolation, where he must reflect on the crime that cost him the only thing he ever loved. He spends his days and nights alone, with his thoughts and his art—drawing the woman he lost.



But his isolation comes to a strange and abrupt halt when a miniature winged woman with pink hair and striking blue eyes comes literally crashing through his cell and his life.



Is Verity Nine a fairy? A sophisticated spy drone? She’s says she’s a human, and she just might be the answer to the pardon he’s so desperately wanted. But at what cost? The closer Malcolm gets to Verity, the less he sees a fantastical creature or a robot—what he sees is a woman for whom he might be willing to sacrifice it all.

Snippets:



“A man knocked me to the floor, kicking me. I was threatened—ordered to leave Camilla,” Jared added. “This craziness has to stop.”

“But—” Camilla argued.

“No buts.” Jared folded his arms on his chest.

“Steven said to me that I hadn’t set a date. I think that’s why he’s kept on pressing. He didn’t believe I was serious, truly serious about Jared. I’ve made my intentions public. I think he’ll shrink away now.”

“You set a date—to marry me—to convince an idiot to leave you alone?” Jared faced her. A storm roiled in his eyes. She’d never witnessed anger from him before. “So, I’m what…your excuse?”

“No. It’s not like that,” Camilla wailed.





#2

Once the groceries were stored in their rightful places, Camilla handed him napkins and silverware. “Will you put them on the table? Then grab the salads from the fridge.”

As instructed, he moved to the dining room. “Nice flowers on the table. Who sent them?” Jared called out.

“Let’s share a bottle of red wine tonight,” she hollered from the kitchen. “Pick your favorite from the rack. And you know where to find the glasses.”

Obviously, she hadn’t heard him.

“Wine is open,” he called out a few minutes later.

When she appeared in the doorway to the dining room, he poured dark liquid into both glasses and offered her one. They clinked their glasses together.

She sipped. “Hmmm, that’s nice. Dry and fruity.”

Taking the glass from her, he deposited it on the table. “About these flowers,” he said. “There’s a card here.”

“Are you fishing for a compliment? You know who sent them.”

“Know?” Jared asked. She wanted to play a guessing game?

“Okay, I understand.” She stopped and made a slight bow. “Thank you, darlin’, for the flowers. I should’ve said that the minute I saw you, but you…sort of distracted me. They’re lovely, and I adore you.” After blowing a kiss in his direction, she went to the stove where she placed sliced bread on a plate with a small dish of butter. “Take this, please. I’ll ladle up the gumbo.”

“Honey, I love you bunches, but I didn’t send the flowers. I bought you a gift, but it’s still in my truck.”

Camilla froze.

Mary was known as the determined and single-minded sister who always had her sights set on a career in New York City. That’s how her family knew her. That’s what they expected. Funny thing about expectations…

Never in her life had Mary Gold met such a perplexing and utterly mouthwatering man.
Stranded in the blazing hot sun of Able, Texas, the swoon worthy cowboy rode up on his golden steed and rescued her from becoming a puddle on the deserted road. The man of her dreams then turned into an insulting jerk at any and every opportunity! If her very existence irritated him, why did he keep coming around? And why did her day seem a little brighter when he did?

Ethan knew her type all too well–high maintenance and with an agenda that would end up costing him dearly. Been there, done that, and had the scars of betrayal to prove it.
His little daffodil represented everything he detested yet he found her gorgeous and adorable and she smelled as good as all those silly flower names he called her. He should have dropped her off in town and never looked back, but he couldn’t seem to stay away.

No matter how hard he tried, avoiding her wasn't working. There was only one thing to do; send her back where she came from, and take temptation far, far away!

The fly in the ointment ... appearances can be deceiving.



EXCERPT:

“Ethan?”
Ethan cringed when he heard the small and delicate voice. “What?”
“Would you please bring me my carryon?”
Slowly through gritted teeth he asked, “what do you want out of it?”
“Just some stuff, if you wouldn’t mind, could you bring it in here?”
Ethan rolled his eyes, what was he now, a lady’s maid? “Ms. Gold, what do you want out of it?” Yeah, he could have taken the entire suitcase into the bathroom but then he wouldn’t have had the entertainment of messing with her.
She called out impatiently, “Mary. My name is Mary.”
He could almost see her stamping her foot in irritation. “You’re kidding, right?” He laughed. “Who names their kid, Mary Gold?”
“Archibald and Jessamine Gold, my mother and father gave me that name!”
Ethan laughed, it figured. “Your family has serious naming issues. I bet you were ripe for the pickings in school.”
“Mr….”
“Montgomery,” he supplied calmly, keeping the amusement from his voice.
“Mr. Montgomery, would you please bring my pajamas and the small zippered cosmetic bag from my carryon?”
Ethan unzipped her case and found several sets of what could be considered pajamas, and smiled wickedly, “Hey Flower,” he yelled through the bathroom door to. “Do you want the blue ones with the kitties or the pink ones with the hearts?” He asked in all seriousness before breaking out in a sly grin.
There was a pause before she answered and Ethan just knew she probably counted to ten.
“Mary. My name is Mary and the pink will be fine,” she answered primly.
He couldn’t help it, he had to, “Do you need any panties? I think the purple flowered ones would go well with the hearts. Of course, the white thongs could go with either.”
She screeched and yelled back, “are you touching my underwear?”
“How else do you expect me to bring it to you?” He waited for her comeback when she said nothing he picked up the zippered bag and of course, unzipped it. Poked around with his finger and found absolutely nothing of interest, just women’s cosmetic, a razor, deodorant, a small bottle of aspirin, toothbrush and toothpaste, dental floss and…yikes! He yanked his hand back and dropped the bag spilling the feminine products and everything else on the bed. He wiped his suddenly sweaty hands on his denims before stuffing the spilled items back into the bag and re-zipping it.
“What’s taking you so long?” She called.
He gathered her things and found her sitting on the edge of the tub instead of where he’d placed her. “Doc Henry left some salve for me to put on you when you’re finished.” He quickly put her things down and turned to leave the room.
“Wait.”
Ethan turned back, he’d been so close. Her next words almost sent him over the edge.
“Would you unzip my skirt and unbutton my shirt.”
Ethan looked to the heavens. Had this woman been sent to be a thorn in his side? How could he undress her and not devour her? No. Think Solange. His hand shook as he reached for the small zipper at the back of her skirt and eased it down between perfectly formed globes. His hands shook with need to touch, caress, lick… No! Think Solange! Sweat beads formed on his forehead as he fought to keep his hands from reaching to take a perfectly rounded cheek in each hand. With her zipper lowered, he turned his attention to the six small buttons on the front of her shirt. The entire time he pushed the small buttons through the holes he made himself remember the last time he’d seen his cheating ex-girlfriend, Solange. She’d been buttoning her shirt when he’d kicked her out. With his mission completed, he raised his hands in victory just like at a calf roping competition before he turned to leave the room.
“Wait.” She took a deep breath before whispering, “my bra.”
Ethan closed his eyes and turned back to her and without thinking about it unsnapped her bra with one hand, a feat he had perfected by the age of fifteen. He turned and escaped before she could come up with any additional tortures for him. He didn’t care if she needed help taking the garments off, he could not help her.

Cover Reveal: Proper Irish by Zeia Jameson





Pre-order: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAYG0IS

Title: Proper Irish
Blurb: Stella Rosencourt is the premier event coordinator of Savannah’s elite. With her biggest event of the year ahead - the Mayor's St. Patrick's Day ball - she has little time for distractions. But the mysterious Padraig MacNamara and his lush Irish accent are definitely proving to be a distraction.

Padraig MacNamara is an inked enigma. A man of few words who crashes in the back room of the Jaded Lily tattoo parlor and associates with questionable people around town. Stella is convinced he has a vendetta against her but over what, she doesn’t know. Her instincts are warning her to stay away. Her curiosity is begging her to figure him out.

What happens when you’re wickedly attracted to the person you hate the most?
