BLURB

There are a million reasons why I shouldn’t ask Audrey to pretend to be my fiancée. For a start:

1.    She’s my best friend’s sexy little sister.
2.    She’ll have to travel around the world with me.
3.    The paparazzi will eat her alive.
4.    So will I.

But I also have a million followers on social media who think we’re already engaged, and there are millions of dollars at stake.

So what have I got to lose?

EXCERPT #1

“Tell me, Audrey,” he murmured softly in my ear, “what’s one habit you wish you could break?”
Half a dozen things other flashed through my mind—using a fork and knife for my pizza, flossing my teeth at night while watching TV in bed, other things that irritated my ex. Maybe the biggest habit I needed to break was falling for the wrong men, but even that wasn’t a habit. Once. It happened once. I just happened to do it Olympic-style, and lost everything.
I bit my lip—another habit—before blurting out, “I wish I was more spontaneous.”
Once my life didn’t go to plan with my parents’ death, I made damn sure I planned the rest. It hadn’t worked out. Was it karma? Fate? The gods laughing at me?
“You seemed pretty… free-spirited earlier.”
Was this flirting? “Well, you know,” I laughed uneasily. “What happens in Vegas…”
My earlier show in the lobby with the champagne bottle was the craziest I’d probably acted since… well, ever. I couldn’t deny that it was liberating.
Maybe I needed to be a little wilder.
Maybe I needed to have a fling.
Maybe I needed to remind myself that one of the hottest men in the world was sitting close enough to irradiate my brain cells and make me think naughty thoughts.
The taxi wasn’t so small that we needed to sit hip-to-hip and shoulder-to-shoulder.  His breath was hot at the top of my ear, and I knew that if I just turned my head and tilted my chin…
I shook my head slightly, unable to even look him in the eye. I didn’t have the guts. Dev wasn’t an adolescent boy anymore. Now he probably dated supermodels and movie stars. And me? I had no game. Hell, I’d already lost a few turns in the Game of Life.
“What about you?” I asked him as the car stopped.
“What about me?” he replied.
He pressed closer, reminding me that I needed to get out of the car before he could. I wriggled over, trying to keep my skirt down and my shoes from slipping off.
Then I made the mistake of turning my head and meeting his gaze, like a kid who can’t help but look at the sun during an eclipse. His lips curved as he leaned his body into mine to make for the door.
My voice was needlessly breathless when I asked him, “Do you have a habit you wish you could stop?”
“Compulsive kissing.”

Release Date: March 1, 2019

BLURB

Mission: Survive my best friend’s wedding, where I must play nice with my ex and his perfect new girlfriend.
Strategy: Bring the hottest fake boyfriend on the planet.
Target: Grady Rock. Master Baker. Dimples. Muscles. The unicorn of fake boyfriends.
Complication: Wyatt Morgan. My brother’s best friend. My sworn enemy. Military man. Sexy as hell single dad. The man I let into my panties for one night of hot hate sex after my ex dumped me before my life fell apart.
And the man who just scared off that perfect fake boyfriend.
By pretending to be my real boyfriend.
I can roll with this though. What’s the harm in Flirting with the Frenemy if it helps me get the job done?
Complete my mission and move on.
Or so I thought.
Until Wyatt kisses me again and I start feeling things I shouldn’t.
The thing about weddings…nothing ever goes as planned.

Flirting with the Frenemy is a rollicking fun romantic comedy featuring a single dad military man, an irritatingly attractive blast from his past, pirates, cursing parrots, and a wedding gone wild. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

BLURB

ERICA:  

Signing up for a matchmaking service was not my idea. But when Andrew the hand model dumped me, my brother suggested I try Mr. Match. And I figured it couldn’t hurt–as it was, I’d never get away from meathead moron soccer players (since my brother plays keeper for the South Bay Sharks and I manage PR for the team.)

But Mr. Match is a moron too because he matched me with a guy I see at work every day. A guy who has a different girl on his arm at every turn. And a soccer player. Fernando Fuerte, the “Fuerte Fire,” is one guy I can assure you is NOT my match.

FERNANDO:

Getting girls is not a problem. Getting girls who care about something besides my status as the South Bay Sharks star striker, my salary, and my social status? Yeah. That’s the problem. So when my buddy Max tells me he’s actually Mr. Match–the secret proprietor of San Diego’s hottest matchmaking app, I let him convince me to try it.

And Erica Johnson is not actually a bad match–only she doesn’t seem to agree. And then there’s the small matter of her being in the middle of trying to save the team (and me) when the owner’s ex brings to light some, ahem, unsavory accusations about me… and then there’s her enormous and disapproving twin brother…and there’s something about cheese, too.

But if I have my way? Erica will definitely be my match.

Everbound (The Kindred #3) by Donna Grant

The Hunters, The Coven, and The Varroki all want a piece of Helena!

Helena is still hiding out from the Coven, shying away from using her magic when she can to avoid giving away her location. But when a Varroki stumbles upon her, she has to stand her ground and take down the Coven once and for all.

There twists and turns, red herrings and more than one WTF moments I’ll admit! I got a lost a few times and had to backtrack to make sure that I had kept everything straight in the old noggin. There are more new characters added and I’m sure that there must be an off-shoot series to accommodate all my what-about-this threads!

Helena is a strong character, she has had to be with the life she has led. Jarin for his part is also emotionally and physically strong but with a contemplative outlook that belies his warrior rank.

No cliffies as such but I really want to know what happens next!

Chasing Fire (Colorado High Country #7) by Pamela Clare

Book 1 in the Men of the Secret Service series from Tule Publishing

Secret Service Agent Griffin Keller always gets his man. And, his woman. In pursuit of an international counterfeiter known only as “The Artist”, Griffin stumbles across paintings that have been unknowingly stolen from the White House and swapped with forgeries. His only clue to the thief’s identity, a dish towel from the White House kitchen.

White House pastry chef Marin Chevalier desperately needs a date to her cousin’s society wedding. Unfortunately, her busy schedule and lackluster social life leave her little opportunity to meet eligible men. When a sexy Secret Service agent shows up in her kitchen—and just about everywhere else she goes—Marin believes she’s finally met the perfect date. But as a series of frightening accidents and near misses begin to occur around her, Marin finds herself relying on Griffin as more than just her “plus-one”.

The more dead bodies that pile up around Marin, the more Griffin is convinced she is the link to The Artist. Too bad he can’t convince his libido. The curvy chef has gotten under his skin like no other woman. When the clues finally fall into place and Griffin realizes Marin is not the suspect, but instead the target, he’ll risk everything in his arsenal to keep her safe. Even his heart.

Covert Games (Redemption Harbor #6) by Katie Reus

Leighton and Luciana are hot enough to melt your kindle.

We leave redemption Harbor for New Orleans as Leighton goes on the hunt for Kuznetsov. They have a lead in the shape of his niece. She appears outwardly on the up and up but can someone that close to the heart of the beast really be that innocent?

Luciana, Lucy to her friends, enjoys her job managing a hotel for her uncle. He took her in after her parents died and he and her cousin are the only family she has left. But when she becomes aware of a sex ring working within her hotel, she is no longer sure who to trust. Especially when she realises that Leighton has been lying to her.

Lucy and Leighton are seriously hot together. I loved the way Lucy kinda rolled with the punches, even in the face of a traitor she did not see coming! Her protectiveness towards her young cousin is so sweet and endearing. She may wibble a bit on her feelings for Leighton but she knows her cousin needs her. Roll on book 7!!!

Fighting for Keeps (Agents of TRAIT #3) by Seleste deLaney

Jodi has locked herself away in the garage of TRAIT, becoming its own version of Q! She now doubts herself, after all her last partner died because he wouldn’t take her seriously. But after TRAIT gets hacked she has nowhere to hide anymore. She needs a partner, someone who is a bit more instinctual. But does it have to be Finn? He’s arrogant, foolhardy and a very strong contender for a$$hole of the year!

Finn, former soldier, former cop, current pain in Jodi’s ass! But together they have been tasked with keeping a senators daughter safe. But if you’re going to give them an assignment – maybe give them all the details especially of the paranormal, telekinesis type! Add in the fact that someone has Jodi in their sight and they don’t seem to be too particular how they get her.

I loved Jodi’s idea of team building – leave him in a room with booby traps and train in peace – LOL. But they do set the sheets alight. Jodi and Finn both have their own doubts about their pasts, they just need to believe in each other. Now to go back and buy the rest of the series.
