Excerpt from Shotgun Wedding.

Reid was on his knee before he recognized the movement for what it was.

She did. “Reid?”

“Marry me, Zarley.”

She gave a resigned sigh. “You had a scare and I’m mad with you for not telling me.”

“Marry me, Zarley.”

“It’s a formality and we don’t need it. And note to self. Don’t ask a woman to marry you when she’s mad with you.”

“You’re mad about me and I f****** need it.”

She came around the table and stood in front of him, hands jammed on her hips. “You already own me, body, heart and soul. I don’t need anything else from you but what we’ve got.” She took his chin in her hand. “What I know we’re going to have forever.”

“It’s not enough.” He intended that to come out with force, to match the way he jerked his face from her hands and got to his feet. They stood close, body-brushing distance.

Zarley was forced to tip her head back to look him in the eye. “If you die on me, last thing I’m going to care about is a fight over your money.”

“Since we agree on that, I don’t see what the problem with some paperwork is?”

She glanced away, a mischievous look on her face. “I guess I have to admit I want to keep my options open.”

Something inside him fishtailed and slid sideways. Merciless little witch. She was playing with him. He got in her face. It was a precursor to getting inside her shorts. “Your options closed out the moment you stood in the wings of that stage and let me see you. The moment you seduced me by being fearless on your pole. You sealed your fate when you punched out an a**hole in the alley and called me on being a drunk.”

She pushed his face away. “I thought you were a drug dealer.”

“And still you picked me up when I was down and put me to bed when everyone else would’ve left me to rot.” He said that while trailing a finger up her arm, from wrist to elbow, into the divot of muscle in her bicep and up to her shoulder. They both watched his hand.

“I did more than put you to bed,” she said, as he flattened his palm over her chest, thumb to the pulse jumping in her neck.

“Your choice in the matter of us was made when you went to your knees in my shower. When you took me to bed and showed me what to do with my body to make your body feel good.”

She leaned into his hand. “I rocked your world.” She did it every time she smiled at him. Every time he went to bed with her in his arms. She’d tilted his world on a whole new axis, made it revolve around her.

“It was game over for you when you drew up that list of all the ways we could pleasure each other and when you took me places I’d never have gone alone, made me a voyeur and a man who agreed to share you.”

“You don’t share.” Said with a wicked pout, a practice kiss; the shape her lips made when they were waiting for his.

He’d shared her that once in the park in Paris. “Not unless you make me.” And she could. She could make him do anything, even give up on this need to tie her to him legally.

She was right, it was a formality. It made his will a tidier document, less open to being f***** with if one of the charities he gave to decided they didn’t like a common law girlfriend taking the bulk of his assets.

“You scared I’ll leave you?”

“Nope.” Her one true failing was loving him stupid. And he knew what to look for. How to measure her touch and her kiss and her way of being with him against her own insecurity and ambition. He was never going to let those things come between them again.

She laughed, put her hand to his stomach where his temper still roiled. “Then what is this about?”

Dev and Sarina would marry. If Owen didn’t get a ring stuck on Cara’s finger before Sarina’s belly popped, Reid would be forced to concede he was wrong about the rightness of the two of them. He was never wrong.

“What’s the problem with a man wanting a woman to be his all the ways there are?”

“No problem.” Zarley edged closer so that all along their bodies, they grazed. “What’s the problem with a woman wanting to be a man’s partner without having that partnership defined in terms religions and lawyers find acceptable?”

Fuck, he wanted her. His spine was electric with it, his throat gone tight so his voice came out low when he said, “No problem,” in a way that made her shiver.

They stared at each other. If they touched, there’d be no more debate. If they touched there’d be instructions, hers; assurances, his. There’d be breathless grunts and inarticulate groans, a language all theirs when they came together in a clarifying rush of heat and tension and freedom.

“You win.” He put his hand to her face and sealed his lips over hers. She would always win, because she never asked anything of him he wouldn’t ultimately give.

Didn’t mean he’d stop wanting.

Release Day Blitz! Girl Breaker by Harper Kincaid


About Girl Breaker by Harper Kincaid

Sometimes the best thing a good girl can do is make a bad decision.

girlbreaker_harperkincaidJessica has always been the girl with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book, only dating the “nice guys”. But when rough-around-the-edges Viking-biker-god, Mad Max, and his precocious little girl move onto her street, Jessica falls hard and fast for both of them.

Max is no stranger to women wanting to share his bed—and he’s always been more than happy to oblige them all. He’s lived wild all his life—that is, until a daughter shows up on his doorstep and he meets a redheaded angel down the block.

There’s nothing more he wants than to claim Jessica as his, to bring the gorgeous spitfire to his bed. But a man like him doesn’t get a happy ending with a woman like her. He’s got a whole other life, one he’s kept secret for good reason.

If Jessica found out what he really is, there’s no way she could love him. He should keep his hands to himself. But he’s Mad Max—he’s never done the right thing, and he’s not going to start now.

Warning: Contains a dominating alpha male who’s a lot more than he seems, and a good girl with a swirl of flavors under her vanilla.

About The Author

A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF…

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I’ve moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I’ve worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm…I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it’s slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh ’til they snort. I’m a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil’ town, Vienna, Virginia.

Book Blitz Spotlight Post! Deputy Laney Briggs Series by Jodi Linton


Get ready to lasso a cowboy…

“Author Jodi Linton creates characters that are challenging, strong, imperfect yet adorably sweet and alluring to readers. An entertaining series with characters that are laugh-out-loud hilarious throughout.” ~Talking Books Blog



prettyreckless500Folks say I’m reckless. I suppose loading a Texas Ranger in the ass with buckshot in my fit of jealousy earned me more scrutiny than the preacher’s wife at a Sunday potluck.

Now I work as a deputy, and the pistol on my hip is registered. I’m finally moving past all the tongue wagging about my youthful escapades. That is until Gunner Wilson, the object of said target practice,struts his cowboy boots back into town. Now he keeps showing up everywhere with that sexy grin of his.

All I want to do is solve this latest case then kick the cocky, tattooed lawman to the curb. But Gunner has gotten under my skin. And hell, that’s a problem, because I’ve made a new life in Pistol Rock, one that doesn’t include my hotter than hell ex-boyfriend. Except now I need his help…and asking a favor from Gunner might cost me more than just a pair of panties…

Pretty Reckless, 99¢ for a limited time!

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads


whatchagonnadowithacowboy500There’s something about a cowboy, right? Exhibit A: Gunner Wilson–Pistol Rock’s resident gunslinger. He’s broad-chested, inked, with a devilish swagger that could make a nun to recant.

He moved back into my life quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas. I should be concerned since Mr. Sexy Texas Ranger has put me in hot water more times than I can count. Yet we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Folks in town say he’s bad news. I beg to differ. He’s changed. They think I should give him the boot. Rid my life of more trouble. But what they don’t know is–

I’m the one welcoming trouble into our small town. And sometimes a reformed bad boy is the only thing standing between a girl and some-not-so-very-good men.

Whatcha Gonna Do with a Cowboy, 99¢ novella!

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads


talkdirtytomecowboy500Give me tight Wranglers. Stetsons. And a grin that would make the devil green with envy.

Give me Gunner Wilson. I’m his. And he’s mine. We’ve been given a second chance, and I have every intention of showing my cowboy how much he means to me.

Tonight, he has my kisses, my desire, and my focus. It’s date night, and I’m bringing the big guns–

My red cowboy boots.

Talk Dirty to Me, Cowboy, FREE novella!

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads



prettyshameless500The second I ran into Gunner Wilson and his outrageously cocky attitude at my cousin’s shooting range, I considered us a team. Then he played dumb about a duffel bag full of money, my cousin’s whereabouts, and the freaking case he’d been working.

Now,I’d bet my britches (and everything else I’m wearing) that my sexy, hot-assed Texas Ranger is lying about my cousin’s real involvement in the local gun smuggling ring.

I know just how damned distracting Gunner can be. Trust me. The pure,unadulterated want between us has never been stronger–and it seems Gunner is pulling all the punches to drive me crazy. He’s good, I’ll hand him that.

But as they say–“You can’t pick your family”–and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let one of them take heat for a crime they didn’t commit.

This case means war.

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Goodreads


Happily ever afters are for wimps. At least that’s what I tell myself. Although, when you expect a proposal from your longtime boyfriend and instead watch him arrest your best
friend–diamond size becomes a moot point.

This time not even that sinfully delicious swagger will be enough to save Gunner Wilson from my shit list.

Yep,Laney’s gonna have my hide. Especially when she finds out how much I’ve been keeping from her.

Mafia?Check. Corrupt cops. Check. Fake arrests. Check. Check.

It looks bad. I know.

But I love my girl. I’ve made some mistakes. Damn right, I have. But everything I’ve done was to protect her.

I’ll break every rule in the book to prove to Laney I’m the best man for the job.

Release Day Blast! Worth The Wait by A.J. Pine


About Worth The Wait by A.J. Pine

worththewait_ajpine_entangledpub_bookcoverI like to think of myself as a man of pleasure…

I enjoy a good pint of ale, being in the arms of a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I’ve got a three-year success rate to prove it.

I wasn’t planning on Grace—the beautiful, funny, totally off-limits massage therapist who keeps popping up in my life. She’s on a six-month mission to rid her life of toxins. No alcohol. No red meat. And, yeah, no men. I’m talking full-on man cleanse.

I know I should walk away, but I can’t…and the only way to keep her in my life is to live by her rules. I’ll need to prove to a woman who’s lost all trust in men that I’m worthy of her love. And do it all without so much as a single kiss.

The only problem? If I win, I’ll lose the one thing I swore I’d never give up. My heart.
