Excerpt
Kneeling in front of each other, I pull her shirt over her head and remove her bra. Her long blonde hair cascades down her bare back, picking up the orange hues from the fire, she looks like a goddess. Gathering up her hair, I wrap it in my hand and around my wrist and pull her in for a fierce kiss. I unbutton her pants with my other hand and guide my hand under her panties. She gasps and thrusts her tongue in my mouth. She reaches for the hem of my shirt and rips it off over my head. I lay her down and kiss that amazing spot that drives her wild under her ear. I kiss down her neck to the hollow of her throat. I trail kisses down the center of her stomach and pull off her pants and panties in one smooth motion. Straddling her hips, I can’t help, but look how glorious she looks with the shadows from the fire dancing on her naked skin. On my knees, I scoot down her body, she bends her knees and places her feet on the rug. Have mercy, how in the world did I end up with this beautiful woman? I kiss up her shin to her knee and then trail down the inside of her thigh. Loving this woman is a gift I could never have imagined. I hit my target and she arches her back off the floor. Any man who says they don’t love doing this is a fool. She’s so responsive, it doesn’t take long before she’s coming and whispering my name. She pulls me up to her mouth, and I love that she can taste herself on my lips and it drives me crazy. I reach between us and guide myself inside her so slowly it’s almost torture. I continue the slow pace as she runs her nails down my back sending goose bumps all over my arms. “Kyle, I love you,” she whispers in my ear. It’s torture continuing at such a slow pace, but I never want this to end. I can feel it building up, and I know I can’t hold back much longer. “Let go, Kyle,” she whispers and clenches her insides around me. It’s my undoing.

I am an “Indie” adult contemporary romance author. I am a wife and a stay at home mom. I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1996. I lovebeing a stay at home mom to our two teenage boys. We have a handful of pets, a dog named Lucy (who is in my books), a guinea pig named Flufy, (my son spells her name that way) and a cat named meow-meow, who adopted us many years ago and has never left.
I never liked reading as a kid and I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. Soon I couldn’t get enough of them. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoyed writing.
I entered my book in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest in January of 2013. Needless to say my three hundred word pitch didn’t even make it through the first round. My book never even got read. So now what do you do with a 50,000+ word book? With more encouragement by my wonderful family I decided to self- publish it. So here I am today a self- published author. It has been a lot of hard work but I wouldn’t change a single thing.
It has not been an easy road and there has been a lot of self- doubt, but I stuck with it and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve been blessed to have been put in contact with some amazing people that have supported and encouraged me every step of the way.

Cover Reveal for Runaway Love (A Brown County Novel) by Amber Nation

Runaway Love Cover
Cover was designed by Rachel Mizer with Shoutlines Design
add-to-goodreads-button31Synopsis
Maggie Walker yearns for the one thing she’s never truly felt: love. After years of rejection and abandonment, the shy and timid Nurse found that running felt right and provided her with the solitude she needed to avoid the haunting memories of her past.
Keeping to her routines and having complete control of her life, made things easier, but not more exciting. When chance steps in, it throws the unexpected in her path in the form of a handsome stranger named Charlie.
Charlie Hennings lives under the pressure of expectation. When forced to follow in his father’s footsteps as an FBI Agent, he left behind part of himself and the chance to embrace his dreams, which included settling down and starting a family.
When his latest endeavor lands him in an undercover position in Brown County, he never expects to find the one person he couldn’t live without, who also ironically ends up being directly connected to his current assignment.
Throughout their journey, Charlie makes it his personal mission to help Maggie break out of her shell and convince her that she deserves all the love in the world. But when Charlie’s lies are brought to light regarding his job, will it destroy everything they’ve been working toward?
Can Maggie overlook his deceit and let herself experience these new feelings of love or will she just runaway from it all?
**This book is intended for a mature reading audience and isn’t suitable for readers under the age of 18.**
Excerpt
Charlie trailed his fingertips lightly down my neck and over my exposed breasts all the way to my waist. He took a puckered nipple into his mouth, the warmth of his breath caused my back to arch and a groan to release from deep within the back of my throat from the heavenly sensation.
My breathing picked up, coming out in audible pants as he began alternating kissing and nipping his way down to my aching core. He ended his descent on the inside of my outstretched thighs, closely hovering over the one place I longed for him the most. The one place I so desperately needed him and would beg him relentlessly until he settled himself there.
He took a deep breath inhaling my scent, which would normally make me shy away with embarrassment but, I was so completely aroused that he could be doing this in public and I wouldn’t mutter a single solitary word against it. He licked his lips and stared at me like he was salivating over his next meal.
Finally, he inched his face closer towards my core and I was so heavy with lust from the anticipation that I was involuntarily thrashing around knowing what ultimately came next.
Somewhere in the distance, I heard a constant beeping followed by forceful nudging while someone called out, “Mag Pie.”
Jolting myself upright, I opened my eyes only to realize that I was in my room, alone in my bed, with a dressed and chipper Gio walking around my bed to shut off my alarm clock.
I had to grab my head with both hands because the sound was so excruciating leading me to believe that I was severely hung over. My heart was still racing a mile a minute and my chest was rapidly rising and falling due to my being out of breath.
Oh my wow! It was only a dream or maybe I should classify that as a nightmare because it got me all worked up and now there wasn’t a single thing I could do about it since Gio was here.
Damn.

Dylan Cross is the type of man that enjoys everything female, and enjoy it he does, but always on his terms. However, his terms are pushed to their limit when Natalie Parker proposes an offer; teach her and her delectable little body, all about sex and desire.

There is one catch. He has to play the part of Natalie's madly in love boyfriend for her dying mother. Dylan signs on, and finds that separating the two is harder than he thought. Natalie's days of shyness and lack of confidence come to a quick close as she learns what her body craves and demands in the bedroom. 

Soon, Dylan becomes the student as Natalie teaches him things he didn't even know he wanted. Will Hamden's notorious playboy, bachelor be able to keep calling the shots, or will he find that, he, himself, is just another player at the card game of life, as we all are?





Our Review



Oh how I loved this book, a continuation of "The Hamden Series" by author Wendy Ferraro. I was given this book for an honest review - so here we go.


Dylan Cross what can you say about him? Deliciously gorgeous, devilishly handsome, down right sexy and a lady's man. Known for his womanizing ways and no plans of every settling down.

Natalie Parker, teacher, caretaker, beautiful but unaware. One really messed up family or should I say screwed up, self absorbed, no good, slime ball brothers.

Natalie is taking care of her dying mother Gloria, who is worried her daughter will be all alone when she passes so decides to give something a try forcing Natalie into desperate measures. Nothing like a good ole' fashioned proposition only normally it is the guy propositioning the girl. But not in Three of Spades. Nope Natalie offers a deal to Dylan that he justifies in his mind is the right thing to do because with him she can't be taken advantage of or hurt.

Talk about whirl wind relationship, it doesn't take long for Dylan to get Natalie right where he likes all women, but Dylan doesn't see it coming, he doesn't see Natalie stealing his heart. Not until something happens of course. But that is usually how it is with those male type. LOL.

The relationship that Dylan and Natalie have is explosive and dynamic and so fun to read. Their banter, the absolutely AMAZING sex scenes - phew talk about a lot of cold showers reading this book. I loved it. Wendy sure has a way with drawing you in like you are sitting there watching every scene unfold.



………"Feel that, Natalie? That is what you do to me. That is the reaction your innocent ways and naive little oral activities cause. So, you ask why I call us in a relationship, because what you feel against you right now, cannot be faked. I'm going to pop that cherry of yours and I'll make sure you love every minute, before, during, and after. So, we are in a relationship from this moment on. Get used to it, Babe."………





HELLO - um can I be in a relationship with you Dylan? I am single? Available? And oh you can talk to me like that any time - LOL.

Oh I do so love the parking lot fight scene coming I can't believe Dylan waited that long to kick this guys butt but oh when he does he does it with flair. LOL

The banter between Dylan and his best friends Seth (Married to Mae in book 1 - Three of Hearts) and Wes (who you can read about in book 3 - Three of Diamonds) is great, they know how to get each other riled up yet are always there for each other. Seth and Mae have no shame flaunting their amazing relationship and marriage in front of their family and friends. The guy guys always know how to give Seth a good ribbing.



………'Mae bid the men adieu. Seth watched as her heart shaped ass Swisher in harmony with her signature flowing ponytail as she walked out of his office. "Yes your wife has a fine ass indeed, by t can you not state at it if we can't," Dylan said, as he playfully threw a pillow at his business partner. "Keep your roaming eyes off my where's attributes, Cross" Seth warned, as he chuckled at the original description regarding Mae's physique.'………





And I absolutely loved all the sports watching and especially the way Dylan used baseball to explain necking to Natalie.



………' "Necking is like baseball they each have bases. First base is kissing. Second is where my hands get to roam over your top half. Third would be where we both get to explore each other's lower halves and a Home run is exactly that," Dylan purred.' ………





I could share so much more but best you go get this book and read it to find out yourself how great this book really is.

Cover Reveal For Finding You by Kelly Harper

Finding You
add-to-goodreads-button31
Synopsis
How far would you go?
When Sarah moved away from her hometown to go to college she thought she was doing it to be with her boyfriend Huck. But when she discovers he’s a cheater out to get whatever he wants, she finds herself alone in a new city. Armed with only a few people she can trust, Sarah sets out to carve her place in the world.
Jeremy’s life came to a stand still two years ago, but now he’s trying to make something of himself. He heads off to college to put his past behind him and start something new. When he meets Sarah he knows he’s in for a roller coaster ride. He hasn’t felt this way about someone in a long time–he never felt like he’d feel this way, again.
As Sarah and Jeremy get to know each other, she realizes there’s something special about him. Something she has never felt before. But there’s something he’s holding back from her, something he’s keeping hidden. Can Sarah find a way to trust someone again, or will Jeremy’s past reveal itself? And will she be able to handle it if it does?
Finding You is book 3 of The By You Series but can be read as a standalone novel.
Excerpt
“Jeremy,” Sarah stammered, brushing a handful of her blonde hair out of her face. “You startled me.”
She could kick herself. Of course she had to be in such a hurry to get home that she didn’t even realize someone was trying to talk to her. Her day didn’t look like it was going to be getting better any time soon.
“I was starting to think you were ignoring me,” he said, grinning.
His crystal blue eyes locked onto hers in a way that made her forget what she was thinking. He had a backpack slung over one shoulder, and the muscles in his forearm twitched as he shifted its weight around.
“Sorry, I guess I wasn’t paying attention. It’s been a rough morning so far.”
His mouth curled in a half-smile, though she couldn’t figure out for the life of her what he was always smiling about.
“That’s not what I was talking about,” he said, with a quick shake of his head. “It’s been weeks and you never called. I was starting to think you got abducted or something.”
Sarah let out a small laugh while her stomach twisted into nervous knots.
“Oh, God no. No abductions for me, thank you.” She shook her head. “I was going to–it’s just that everything’s been so crazy, lately. Classes are keeping me busier than I thought they would.”
It was a lie, but she hoped that he couldn’t tell. She hadn’t lost his number or anything, she’d just been focusing on herself for the past few weeks. After everything that had happened, she wasn’t very interested in making friends with the opposite sex anytime soon.
Jeremy clutched a hand to his chest and winced.
“I thought we had a good thing going,” he said, his face twisted in mock pain.
Sarah let out another laugh. “Stop it, you know it’s not like that.”
The smile returned to Jeremy’s face and she couldn’t help but notice how his eyes looked her up and down. But the smile didn’t last long before fading away.
“Don’t worry, there’s no hard feelings. I know you have a boyfriend and all, I was just hoping you were still interested in being friends.”
Anger flared up in her at the mention of her boyfriend, but she reeled it in, quickly. She should just tell Jeremy the truth–that she and Huck were done–but she didn’t want him getting the wrong idea. He’d already made it clear that he was interested in her, and he might think that he had a shot now that she was single.
But he was right. They had only seen each other a few times since they’d met, but they’d had fun. He was easy to talk to, and he had a way of listening to her like he actually cared about what she had to say. Maybe making a new friend wouldn’t be the worst thing that could happen?
“It’s not like that–I promise.”
Jeremy studied her, his eyes narrowing with consideration. His cheek twitched as his lips pinched together, and he nodded as though he’d come to some conclusion.
“Fine, you’re forgiven for blowing me off.” The playful grin returned to his face and he took a step closer to her, leaning down to whisper something. “But, you’re going to have to make it up to me.”
Sarah’s eyes widened as unwanted thoughts and images flashed in her head. Jeremy leaned away again and she hoped he didn’t see the burning in her cheeks.
“Make it up to you?” she said.
“That’s right. But don’t worry, I’m a pretty fair guy, even when my ego has been trampled…”
“I didn’t trample anything–”
He held up a hand, cutting her off. “Coffee, at three.” He gave her another grin, and even winked, before adding, “Just as friends, of course. Don’t be late–my ego can’t handle being trampled twice by the same girl.”
Without warning, he turned and started walking away from her. Sarah stared after him for a second, speechless.
“Hey, wait,” she yelled. “Where are we meeting?”
Jeremy turned but kept walking backwards. He tilted his chin toward her. “You have my phone number still, right? Text me and I’ll let you know.”
He flashed her one more grin before turning away and picking up his pace. Sarah watched him until he disappeared between a couple buildings, flustered and confused by everything that had just happened.
Did she really just agree to go on a coffee date with him? She muttered and cursed at herself while she walked back to her dorm. She wasn’t sure if she was more upset at herself for agreeing to meet up with him or because she didn’t tell him that she was single. Either way, the day didn’t look like it was going to be getting better any time soon.
MeetTheAuthor
Like for many, life for Kelly didn’t really begin until her 30th birthday. That was when she decided she was done with the corporate ladder and was going to start publishing some of her stories to see if people liked them. Fast forward a couple of years, and she’s still amazed that she’s able to spend her time doing something she’s loved doing since she was a little kid.
Most of her free time is spent working in front of the computer at various coffee shops around Houston. But when she’s not working on her next book, she’s probably sitting in front of the TV with her eyes glued to whatever Netflix show she happens to be obsessed with at the time. Do we really have to wait this long for the next season of Orange Is The New Black?!
