Title: Caught Up In You
Series: Indigo Royal Resort #2
Author: Claire Hastings
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 24, 2020



Blurb

Leona Filipe loves her job. As the head of housekeeping at the luxurious Indigo Royal Resort on St. Thomas, USVI, she has seen it all and has the wild stories to prove it. She works with her best friends, is close enough to see her family often, and has the perfect friends-with-benefits relationship. Life is pretty damn amazing. Except for the two weeks each year that Cullen Cruz stays at the resort. He is the only man who can get under her skin. But that is all he’s getting under. She made that mistake years ago, and it will never happen again.

Fresh off the news of his “retirement” from football, Cullen Cruz cannot wait to get to the Indigo Royal for his annual retreat before returning to England to figure out what’s next. Only this year, it’s been turned into a “working vacation” by his agent, who volunteered Cullen to run a skills camp for local kids. While that wouldn’t normally sit well, extending the trip to teach some kids how to kick a ball does mean two more weeks getting to see the woman he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about since their first, and last, encounter ten years ago.

When fate forces these two to confront what happened between them that night all those years ago, they find that there is more to each other than they realized, and that maybe they don’t annoy each other as much as they thought...

Excerpt

She stood her ground, trying to make herself taller, which really only resulted in her pushing her beautiful breasts out farther. She swallowed hard. “Stay the fuck away from me, Cruz.”
“No, Menina, I won’t,” he responded, stepping even closer, so there was almost no gap between them now. He could hear her breath catch as he did so, which made his heart speed up even more. Maybe she did still want him. “Here’s what I think. I think you want me. Under all that piss and vinegar, what you really want is another ride,” he whispered into her ear.
Her breath hitched slightly, betraying the scowl on her face. Regaining her composure just as quick as she’d let it slip, she growled, “Not a chance.” 
“Really?” he whispered again, skeptical of her answer.
“Really.”
He reached out and put his hand on her waist. Before she could pull away, he yanked her into him, hard. Her soft curves smashed into his hard chest, making them both catch their breath. He felt her body shiver in his arms and saw her eyes darken with desire, just as a bolt of lust ran through his own body. Before he could stop himself, he reached down and scooped her up by her ass. She let out a little gasp, which he quickly silenced by covering her mouth with his.
She tasted sweet, just like he remembered. Her soft lips felt like heaven against his and, in this moment, for the life of him he couldn’t remember why he hadn’t done this years ago. Her body was stiff in his arms, as if she were fighting an internal battle on whether or not to resist. She fisted her hands in his shirt, as if she couldn’t make up her mind if she wanted to push him away or pull him in closer. Helping her make the decision, he pulled her in even tighter. As much as she tried to hide it, he knew she wanted this—wanted him. He’d seen the flame of desire in her eyes.
After a moment, the initial shock wore off, and she slid her arms around his neck, returning his kiss fully. It was like something had ignited the flame inside her and she poured all her passion and anger into her efforts. Her tongue met his and it was like fireworks went off in his body. He couldn’t remember the last time something as simple as a kiss had felt this good. Maybe never. His left hand dipped to squeeze her butt cheek, causing her to whimper and moan in excitement. This only fueled him on more—kissing her harder, deeper, wanting even more of her.
When he finally pulled away, it took him a moment to open his eyes, afraid that he might see regret in hers. But it wasn’t regret that was shining back at him—it was a mix of surprise and longing. And it made him want to kiss her again.
She unhooked her arms from his neck, sliding back down his body. When her feet met the ground, she lifted her hand to her lips, slowly running her fingers across them, in disbelief at what had just happened. She looked back up at him, but only for a second before turning and running away.

Release Blitz: The Anit-Boyfriend

 




Title: The Anti-Boyfriend
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020



Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.

Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.

But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.

As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.

So, finally it was my turn.

When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.

Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.

Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.

After that night, we became friends.

He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.

But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.

Until one night we crossed the line.

Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.

I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.

I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.

He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”

Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

Cover Reveal: Ryder

 

USA Today bestselling author Prescott Lane has revealed the cover for Ryder, the highly-anticipated second, standalone book in the Merrick Brothers series!

 

 

Releasing September 24, 2020

Country music headliner, crowd pleaser, legend in the bedroom.

You know how your mother always warned you that it only takes one time. Well, I'm proof of that.

One night with country music's hottest star, Ryder Merrick, and I got knocked up.

He promised me it wasn't just a one night stand.

But I woke up alone, and a few weeks later found out I was carrying his child.

I'm sure Ryder won't want anything to do with us. After all, he's famous for not believing in love. There's a reason he's never written a love song.

Why should he change his tune now? But telling him I'm pregnant still feels like the right thing to do.

All it takes is maxing out my credit card to buy a front row seat to his concert.

And then wait for him to notice me... and my bump.

But when the moment came, it didn't happen like I had planned.

Excerpt

I navigate the bumpy gravel drive in my heels and rolling luggage until a wheel locks up. I rock the bag side to side, searching for the issue. “Where are you?”

“Let me help you with that.” I look toward the deep voice and I’m met with a smile. My heart skips a little and I’m stunned.

“Uh… I think it’s a rock.” I say without drooling.

He picks up the sixty-pound bag without issue, moving it to the sidewalk. I open my mouth to thank him when I see all eyes on us. I nervously chuckle.

“I’ll take it from here. I don’t want you to lose your place in line.”

“I’m already seated. I saw you struggling and thought I’d lend a hand.”

“Is that so?”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“Ma’am?” I laugh and he stammers a little. “I’m much to young to be addressed as ma’am, don’t you think?”

“It’s how my mother raised me.” He flashes a trillion-dollar smile that’s derives straight from the steamy depths of hell because it’s downright sinful. The man is a work of art.

Powerful jaw. Broad shoulders. Beneath that shirt is a chiseled body, I’m sure. I swallow around the stone in my throat as he hunkers closer and examines the wheels on my bag.

“Here’s the issue.”

I blink, and his face is close. Super close. I’m finding it hard to breathe and when I do, I inhale a long drag of temptation.

Can a man smell yummy? Yes.

Better than the scent of homemade southern food lingering in the air? Absolutely.

God, yes.

“Everything all right?” A crease of concern bunches between his dark brown eyes.

“Uh…”

My lungs empty as I take a quick inventory of the man in front of me. A man rendering me speechless in the right way. This moment is going down in the books. But in my defense, I’m delusional and sleep deprived. That’s what it is. I lay a hand over my galloping heart, fighting to string together a response.

I inhale and… oh hell, that damn delicious scent tickles my nose, and the sensation travels through my body, awakening a whisper of attraction. I groan.

Stop breathing, Jayda. Just stop breathing. I chastise myself the moment I lock eyes with him.

“Yeah, I…” I shake to quiet the voices in my head. “Long morning of travel.”

I can’t look away, and neither does he. I came to Southern Soul to meet my best friend, Catrina. I figured staying with her for the week would makeup for Brett ditching me.

Damn, Texas has some fine ass men. The masterpiece before me has a beard and full eyebrows. He’s groomed, but all man. His golden peanut butter complexion reminds me of my Reesie Piecie. And with that thought comes the thorn in my side, Brett.

“Huh, thanks. I got it. I appreciate your help.” I stand and he moves with me until he’s towering over me.

And he’s tall. I almost groan again, but I hold it in. It’s time for me to find Catrina. Unlike my boyfriend, I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a cheater. The moment I want someone more than what I have, I’m out. At least, that was before I had Reese. Now, I stay because… staying’s the right thing to do.

“My pleasure. Name’s Kamal Montgomery. And you are?” He extends a hand.

“Jayda Dallas.” I take his hand and immediately regret it. A trail of heat flows from him to me in a timeless extension of energy, paralyzing me. “Huh, someone’s waiting for me. Thanks again.”

I retract my hand, but not before he flips it over. The perfect thick brow of his arches in an unspoken question. I slip my hand from the warmth of his. But the heat of his touch lingers.

I rub my hand along my skirt, trying to erase the memory as I reclaim the handle of my bag and start rolling towards the front of the line.

“Hey, Jayda!” Catrina sings, wrapping me in a sisterfriend hug as we squeal like kids. When we finally step back, she takes possession of my bag. Then she stares at the man now standing beside us. “Kamal.”

Kamal nods, “Enjoy your meal, Jayda.” Then he disappears.

Releasing October 8, 2020

She's the hurricane I didn't see coming.

I knew from the moment we met that I had to have her.
Too bad she belonged to someone else.
Or so I thought.
She dropped the man hanging on her arm with one well-placed kick.
Unfortunately, I witnessed the assault and had no choice except to arrest her.
I practically heard her entire life story during the hour I had her in the back of my cruiser.
Avery James doesn't belong to anyone.
She doesn't back down.
She doesn't walk away.
Even when she should.
Chaos might as well be her middle name.
From one disaster to the next, she's a magnet for mayhem.
She's too stubborn for her own good.
Blindly charging head-first into a world she doesn't belong in.
My world.
Law, order, and everything in its place.
But Avery?
She makes me want to bend every rule I have.
Even if I break under the strain.

Cover Reveal: My Darling Arrow

 




Title: My Darling Arrow
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: New Adult Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber
Model: Jon Herrmann
Release Date: September 17, 2020



Blurb

Darling Arrow,

I shouldn’t be writing this. 
It’s not as if I’m ever going to send you this letter, and there are a million reasons why.
First of all, I was sent to this reform school as a punishment for a petty, totally inconsequential crime. Not to ogle the principal’s hot son around the campus.
Second of all, you’re a giant jerk. You’re arrogant and moody and so cold. Sometimes I think I shouldn’t even like you.
But strangely your coldness sets me on fire. 
The way your athletic body moves on the soccer field, and the way your powerful thighs sprawl across that motorcycle of yours, make me go inappropriately breathless. 
But that’s not the worst part. 
The worst part is that you, Arrow Carlisle, are not only the principal’s hot son. 
You also happen to be the love of my sister’s life. 
And I really shouldn’t be thinking about my sister’s boyfriend, or rather fiancĂ© (I overheard a conversation about the ring that I shouldn’t have).
Now if I can only stop writing you these meaningless letters that I’ll never send and you’ll never read…

Never yours,
Salem

NOTE: This book is a standalone and DOES NOT contain cheating.
