Beckett Fox lives his life on the edge between danger and responsibility, and that’s all he’s ever known… until he meets Avery. Now, time at home is more appealing than the do-or-die future he’d always pictured for himself.

Fox has everything he’s ever wanted. But he knows better than anyone that life can change direction faster than the wind.

When an accident threatens to destroy his entire world, Fox will have to choose between fighting for what he loves or letting his past dictate his future.

How much strength does it take to move forward when history seems determined to knock you down? And how do you find the path to redemption when you don’t even recognize your own life?

Exclusive Excerpt

When the wind shifted, I knew this would be more than an eighteen-hour day. We all did. I went through the motions I’d been trained for, checking supplies, working the containment line, keeping up communications with air support and the ranger station. Trying not to get burned alive by the furious inferno that seemed intent on taking down all four million acres of the Oka-Wen National Forest… the usual.

No time to think about anything else, no time to dwell on the months-empty condo back in Seattle or the fact that lately everything I did seemed like a prequel to my life actually starting. This fire wanted us, and she wasn’t giving up. Mother Nature had it in her to be the worst girlfriend you’d ever had.

“Damn, Foxy,” McDaniels panted, jogging up to my side. “Is today over yet or what?”

I cracked a grin at him, feeling the blistering heat from the sun and the fire mix into one and swirl around us as I hefted my chainsaw. “Not by a landslide.”

McDaniels gave me the side-eye. “Really? You wanna joke about landslides?”

“Hey now,” Sloane popped his head out of the crew buggy where he was listening intently to the handheld radio. “None of that.”

Review

Just when I thought I couldn't fall more for Creighton, Meghan proves me wrong!

So Dirty Pleasures picks up where Dirty Billionaire leaves off. And just when Creighton happy with his business deal, he remembers his promise to Holly and how he has failed her. But he vows to get her back because he's nowhere near done with her. Maybe, just maybe, he could be falling for his wife.

Holly is back on the road and doesn't have time to think about how she left New York. Her career is important to her and she'll do what she has to at all cost. She's not entirely sure how she feels for Creighton, but she would love to have him come find her and beg for forgiveness. But is that something he know how to do?

And boy, when they do come face to face, the fireworks fly! A cold shower is needed, well, maybe a few cold showers.

But just when things start to look up for the couple. someone walks in to stir things up.

Can our couple work through the issues, admit their feelings and take a chance? Or are they over before they've even begun?

I am loving this trilogy. It's a quick, heart pumping read. The way Creighton uses your mouth, tongue, hands, and body can make any girl fall into a puddle of pure gratification. I love how is alpha, overprotective, and slightly jealous attitude takes over where Holly is concern. Their relationship is ever changing, but neither is ready to admit it. I can't wait to see how Creighton and Holly will deal with the latest turn of events.

Holly is defiantly one lucky girl. Creighton is quickly becoming one of my favorite book boyfriends!

Dirty Billionaire
Release Date 12/08/2015

I've got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That's pretty much where my bio ends.

Honestly, I don't need to say anything else. I've just sold 99% of women on going home with me.

Do I sound like an asshole to you?

That's because I am.

And guess what? It works for me just fine.

Or at least it did.

Until I met her.

Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.

Only one problem.

She wouldn't tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.

Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy–the sweetest, rarest of all pussy–and I need it again.

So what's an asshole to do?

I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.

And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

My wife.

I love saying those words.

She's mine, and if she thinks I'm going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs–with me–then she's about to be introduced to a new reality.

Because I'll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves.

There are risks to mixing business with pleasure...

If a man has an affair at work, he's a stub.

He was a royal prick.
The night we met, he ignored me.
Then Mr. Big Shot CEO grabbed my ass in a business meeting. 
My boss just loaned me out to this guy.
Now, we’re working on a major project together. 
And our chemistry is dangerous.
Combustible.
If I allow it to ignite, I’ll risk losing that promotion. 
Worse, what if I lose myself in him?

If a woman has an affair at work, she's a slut.

From the moment I saw her I knew she was trouble.
It was the combination of her fresh face, smart mouth and nipples that seemed to know my name.
This woman could satisfy my needs both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
But there was more to it than that.
I wanted her.
Really wanted her.
And I was in the position to change the course of her life.
But I’ve got secrets, secrets that could destroy her.And either make her mine or drive her away forever.


Excerpt

Slave to Love
© 2015 Julie A. Richman

Parking the Lotus, I quickly head to her side to help her out. She gives me a look and I laugh, “I’m only trying to be a gentleman.” I feign innocence.

“Mmm-hmm.” Even her mmm-hmm is dripping sarcasm.

Not commando. White lace. Oh God, she’s destroying me. I want to rip them off and lower her onto my lap. Impale her and discover what kissing does to her with my cock inside her.

Damn it. Will I be able to keep the promises I want to make?

Our waiter comes by and I order two Manhattans, smiling at Sierra.

“Craving cherries?” Her eyebrows are raised.

Oh man, she really is going to kill me tonight.

“Only if they are yours.”

“You want mine?” she asks and I can see she feels it. She feels our energy.

“More than you can imagine.”

“I would hate to deny you.”

“Good girl. Then don’t.”

The waiter places the Martini glasses in front of us and I lift mine, “Good to see you again.” And I hope she can see how sincere I am.

“Good to see you.” She takes a sip and her nose scrunches up. “This tastes different.”

“They make theirs with rye whiskey instead of bourbon.”

Another two sips and the cherry is no longer submerged. Sierra reaches into the glass and plucks it out. About ready to pop it into her mouth, she catches my eye and smiles. She’s just messing with me. Reaching out, I grasp her slender wrist and slowly pull it to me. Taking the tips of her thumb and forefinger into my mouth, I suck the cherry out from between her fingers and show it to her on my tongue before slowly chewing it, a smile firmly planted on my face.

I’m still holding her wrist and with my free hand, I signal to the waiter for two more.

“We need to talk, Hale.”

I can see she is struggling. We are in such dangerous territory and we escalate there quickly and too easily. She is clearly unnerved and I’m not sure if it’s by her own behavior, mine or what happens when we’re together. Her eyes search mine as if she is hoping to find some truth. I loosen my hold on her wrist and pick up my drink.

“Let me start by first saying something I have yet to say to you. I’m sorry, Sierra. I’m sorry I disrespected you.”

My Papai always said wine made everything better. Countless times he uttered those familiar words to me— “The Merlot will melt your problems away meu amor. With a good bottle of wine in your hand, you hold the magical key to anything you want.”

I believed my father whole heartily, until my world came crashing down on me at twenty-four years old.

It wasn’t going to take wine to help Brody and I find our way back to one another. It was going to take fighting … not only for our love—

But for my life.

Excerpt

Her eyes met mine, and I swear I’d never felt my stomach twist and turn like that. She was gorgeous. Dark brown hair pulled up neatly on her head, green eyes that danced with excitement, and skin that looked like it had been kissed by the sun. When I accidentally brushed my hand across her shoulder, my entire body caught fire.

It only took me a few minutes to get myself back under control so I could speak to her, but the jerk sitting across from her started talking to her.

“So, Brynlee, what are you getting your degree in?” he asked.

Brynlee smiled politely, but I got the feeling she didn’t want to talk to him. “Business management.”

Bingo. My cue.

“Really? Same here,” I cut in as I turned to Brynlee. “Well, chemical engineering with a minor in business.”

Brynlee turned and looked at me with the sweetest smile. I actually had to concentrate on breathing while I looked at those beautiful bee-stung lips. “Wow, that’s impressive. I wonder if we’ve had any classes together?”

Hell no. I’d remember seeing this beautiful creature.

“Must not have.”

Keeping the grin on her face, she shrugged. “Well, some of those classes were huge. You could have been in the back or something.”

I lifted my beer and took a drink as Brynlee’s eyes fell to my lips. Setting my beer back on the table, I gave her a panty-melting smile, ensuring to show my dimples. She seemed to like them. Her breath caught every time she looked at them. “I’m pretty damn sure I’d have noticed you if you were in any of my classes, Brynlee.”

New Release & Giveaway ~ December, Calendar Girl #2, by Audrey Carlan



Title: December
Series: Calendar Girl #12
Author: Audrey Carlan
Publisher: Waterhouse Press
 Release Date: December 29, 2015

Blurb

Mountains, miracles, and marriage.

I had no idea what to expect when the producers of Dr. Hoffman sent me to the pristine white mountains of Aspen, Colorado. As the town of Aspen is known for being a winter haven for uber-rich Americans, I knew this desert cactus was going to be way out of her league. The ace up my sleeve however, was a high-class movie-making surfer whose family owned a cabin in those snowy hills. With him by my side, I’d make the most out of the experience.

The job had been assigned under unusual circumstances. An anonymous mountain man paid a hefty fee to persuade the producers of my show to send me out for a segment on local artisans. Suited up in my parka and Ugg boots, I put the warmth of the California sun in the rearview mirror and headed to a winter wonderland.

With my newfound family in tow, I was prepared to celebrate the best month the year had to offer…until the one woman who drastically changed my life all those years ago appeared like a shadow out of pure, frosted air, shattering my soul all over again.

*********

In the twelfth and final book in the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is off to Aspen, Colorado to film a segment on local artists under rather unique circumstances. Prepare to be wowed and vindicated as Mia’s journey merges into the ending everyone has been waiting for.

Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

Review

The end is here and what an ending to an incredible journey it is.

Of course it won't be smooth sailing, there are a couple bumps in the road that will take Mia by surprise. But Mia isn't the same person she was back in January and she's not alone, she got someone by her side and he's not going anywhere. Their relationship has had its ups and downs, but in the end they will be dreaming big for their future.

This whole series was brilliantly written and I'm sad to see it end. I loved tagging along with Mia and meeting some very interesting people. I watching Mia grow into a stronger individual was stunning. She started this to help her father, but I think this was something Mia needed to do for herself as well.

Book Blast & Giveaway ~ Commander Henry Gallant, The Henry Gallant Saga #4, by H. Peter Alesso


Commander Henry Gallant
by H. Peter Alesso


Blurb

He thought Alaina loved him, but now she’s found someone else. A tidal wave of loss and grief swept over Henry Gallant, leaving him undecided about what to do next, or how to move forward.

Despite his sorrow, he goes on a dangerous mission to an invading aliens’ home world in the Gliese-581 star system. There he uses a neural interface to penetrate their communication network and steal a high ranking alien’s identity. Through this artifice he learns about their history and society, and discovers a way to hinder and possibly defeat them.

A side-effect of linking into the alien network—which was created for autistic savants—is that Gallant’s mind was stimulated and enhanced to the point where he begins to experience superintelligence abilities.

Upon returning from his mission, there is concern that Gallant might pose an even more serious threat than the aliens. While he struggles to fend off those who doubt his loyalty, he fights to win back Alaina.

This is the fourth book of The Henry Gallant Saga, but it can be read as a standalone story.
