New Release! Emergency Attraction by Samanthe Beck

Ten years ago when Shane Maguire chose the Marines as his escape from some trouble of his own making, he only regretted one thing—leaving Sinclair Smith behind. Despite his best intentions, she ended up as the one that got away. Now he’s back, determined to reclaim everything he gave up, including Sinclair.

Sinclair is immune to Shane’s charms. She’s immune to stolen kisses behind the gym. And she’s definitely immune to that maneuver he did in the back seat of his car… Okay, maybe her hormones are susceptible, but she has absolutely no desire to risk anything on the bad boy who broke all his promises.

When a little emergency lands her at his mercy, he offers her a deal she can’t refuse. And this time, she’ll show Shane what it means to be left wanting…

New Release! Fake Engagement, Real Temptation by Joya Ryan





He hustled her direction, and it wasn’t until he got closer that he saw the massive pink suitcase she was fighting with was broken, and the fuzz in question was coming from her—as in the bottom piece of her dress, and she was next in line to drop off her bag.

“Jesus Christ,” he said, walking up to her. She looked up from the fight with her bag, blew a lock of hair out of her face, and scowled.

“What the hell are you doing here?” she asked. There was that sass. He’d take attitude over her tears any day.

“I could ask you the same thing,” he said.

She pointed at her suitcase. “Well, you’re the genius with the idea to go on my honeymoon alone, and since my arms get tired when I flap them longer than ten minutes, I have to take an airplane to Hawaii.”

He raised a brow, his blood igniting in that way that only Carrie could make it. That snarky tone made him want to spar with her. But he knew her well enough to know she was still hiding pain beneath the brazen attitude.

“I’m glad to see you found your sassy pants,” he said. “Maybe they’ll keep you warm under that dress.”

She rolled her eyes and Blake continued.
“I’m glad you’re going and I’m glad you’re having your adventure. But I was serious about needing a—”

“Spotter?” she cut in, using his term from earlier.

“Yes. Carrie, you going alone isn’t an option.”

“Well I’m a grown up and I’m not taking my brother. That’s weird and, oh right, I’m. A. Grown up!” she said slowly, like he was an idiot.

“Lane can’t make it,” he said frankly and watched her eyes go wide, the truth hitting her.

“Lane sent you,” she said with venom in her voice. “How did he even know I was here?”

“He didn’t, I did,” Blake corrected quickly. “After our talk and realizing you wouldn’t wait, I tracked you down here.”

“Oh right, the infamous tracker,” she said, and Blake wished she sounded more impressed. Not sure why that mattered. Maybe he could contemplate that if he wasn’t too busy staring down plump, tan skin, currently heaving out of the top of her dress.

My god she looked incredible.

But Carrie was clearly in a mood, and he couldn’t blame her. Last thing he should be doing is checking her out. Which he wasn’t. Because not only was she just left at the altar, but she was his best friends little sister. No way in hell was he thinking of her in any other way other than a lady to be protected.

Truth be told, he thought she’d be a crying mess of sad clown makeup but instead, she was huffing from the suitcase, making the tight, low cut of her dress dip even more, giving him yet another prime view of the most perfect cleavage he’d ever seen.

Kevin was an idiot to not show up for a woman like her.

Stop thinking that way, she’s your buddy’s sister.

“Well you found me,” she said exasperated. “So you can report back that I’m fine. Bye.”

“Sorry, little girl, can’t do that.”



About Fake Engagement, Real Temptation by Joya Ryan

fakeengagementrealtemptation_JoyaryanOh. My. God. Carrie Morgan can’t escape her cheating ex fiancé. She goes on her Hawaiian honeymoon fantasy vacation to prove she’s over him—but he’s there with his mistress in tow. Good thing Carrie’s annoyingly over-protective friend Blake came with her. How’s she going to prove to her ex she’s over him? Easy. One… Two… Three… She grabs Blake and kisses him.

Blake Harris isn’t about to let anyone take advantage of his heartbroken friend Carrie. And that includes himself, even if she’s sexy as sin in that bikini. Then she kisses him—and he’s on fire. Damage done, but he can back off. Except he sees that broken look in Carrie’s eyes. No. Hell no. New plan. He intends to show her ex just what he’s thrown away.

The kisses? For show. The heat? Part of the performance. The private practice sessions? Uh-oh. Those are starting to feel a bit too real…

About Playing It Cool by Amy Andrews

Score one for the curvy girls.

Harper Nugent might have a little extra junk in her trunk, but her stepbrother calling playingitcool_amyandrews_entangledpublishingher out on it is the last straw… When rugby hottie, Dexter Blake, witnesses the insult, he surprises Harper by asking her out. In front of her dumbass brother. Score! Of course, she knows it’s not for reals, but Dex won’t take no for an answer.

Dexter Blake’s life revolves around rugby with one hard and fast rule: no women. Sure, his left hand is getting a workout, but he’s focused on his career for now. Then he overhears an asshat reporter belittle the curvy chick he’d been secretly ogling. What’s a guy to do but ask her out? It’s just a little revenge against a poser, and then he’ll get his head back in the game.

But the date is better than either expected. So is the next one. And the next. And the heat between them…sizzles their clothes right off.

Suddenly, this fake relationship is feeling all too real…

Q&A With Author Amy Andrews!

Today’s feature post is my Q&A with author Amy Andrews, as part of the blog tour for Amy’s latest release Playing By Her Rules, book one of Amy’s newest series, SydneyAmyAndrews Smoke Rugby. Welcome to Talking Books Blog Amy!


What was your inspiration for wanting to write the Sydney Smoke Rugby series?

I was approached by my editor at Entangled, Liz Pelletier, about doing the rugby series. I’d pitched her a medical idea but they already had a couple of those in the pipeline and she really wanted a rugby series which is quite popular with US audiences even though it’s not a game that’s really played there.  I think hot guys in tight shorts resonates with all female audiences though and the whole no body armour thing sets it apart from Gridiron. Also things like the All Blacks haka routines and the publicity surrounding Jarrod Hayne has helped to up rugby’s profile even though Jarrod (up to that point anyway) didn’t actually play rugby union…


What was your favorite quote from the book?

Oooh, so many 🙂  Hmmm. This is one of them – “I tackle guys three times your size for a living. I can handle whatever you throw at me.”


Who was the most challenging character to write from the story?

Probably for me it was Tanner. Because not only is he a guy – obviously as a chick this is always challenging to get right – but he’s a footballer and not being an aficionado on anything sporty, I had to dig deep on that one. But, as always, I try and channel my husband and other witty guys I know who are real men and speak/talk/act like them. My husband always says that not much else than food and boobs is going on inside his head at any given time so I try and keep that uppermost when I write guys 🙂


What can readers look forward to in the next instalment in the series?

The next book in the series is Dexter Blake’s story.  He’s Tanner’s best friend and right hand man on the team and falls hard for curvy, arty chick, Harper.  I like writing their story. As a woman who has to shop in plus size stores, I understood Harper and her insecurities really well. And I loved, loved, loved how into her Dex was 🙂


What other projects are you currently working on?

There are 8 books in the Sydney Smoke rugby series so it’s pretty much going to take up my time for the next 18 months! But I’m also sneaking in an Aussie fire fighter and US Professional Bull rider book for Tule and around October I’m self-pubbing a naughty little Xmas novella called Hanky Spanky Christmas 🙂


About Playing By Her Rules by Amy Andrews

His game, her rules.

In this grudge match, the first to score…

When style columnist Matilda Kent accidentally lets slip that she was once involved with PlayingByHerRules_AmyAndrews_BookCover_EntangledBrazenthe captain of the Sydney Smoke rugby team, she suddenly finds herself elevated to the position she’s always wanted – feature writer. The catch? She’s stuck doing a six-part series on her ex. Still, there’s no way she can turn down a promotion…or the chance to dish the dirt on the guy who so callously broke her heart.

…could win it all!

Tanner Stone wants to be involved in a feature series about as much as he wants to snap an Achilles. But the thought of seeing Tilly again is a bonus—and has him more worked up than he wants to admit. Only he’s not prepared for how different she is – all cool and professional. His Tilly is still in there, though…and he still wants her, now more than ever. All he has to do is charm her into giving him a rematch. And this time, winner takes all!
