I’ve sworn never to get comfy on the casting couch, but when we’re snowed in together upstate, it’s looking like a pretty good place to spend the night. Soon, sparks - and my panties - are flying.

Who said Christmas only had to come once a year?

Baker's Dozen Release Blitz with ARC Review!

Title: Baker's Dozen
Series: Copper Creek #3
Author: Wendy Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2017


Owen Campbell is more than the town baker—he’s also the player out of all the Campbell boys. A tragic accident brings a secret to light that turns his world on its head and forces him to reconsider his lifestyle.

Ginny Robinson is alone, and that’s the way she likes it. While she loves teaching, the circumstances of her employment leave her thinking about leaving town. Until she meets Owen.

When Owen asks her to move in, Ginny’s afraid it’s for all the wrong reasons.

Can he work out what the right reasons are?

The third book in the Copper Creek series continues the story of the Campbell family.


A swoony, sweet, seductive romance that is fun, scrumptious, had me eager to turn the pages and had great characters and a really good storyline. Baker's Dozen was a story that had good solid heart. I loved how well put together it was and how easy it was for me to get into the book. I found myself sighing...OUT LOUD at times and nibbling my lip while flipping the pages. When I had to put the book down, it was constantly on my mind and I itched to pick it back up and read more. It made me smile and sigh and made me sniffle more than once. I just really liked it!

Owen is such a dreamy hero. I loved how sexy he was and how he was so respectful and good to Ginny he was. I found him to be a little guarded but caring none the less and Ginny was equally as kind and sweet and pretty. Their story is so sweet and kind of perfect if you asked me.

How can Harper be sweet when all she wants to do is give them a taste of her honey? She's in trouble. Big trouble. Mafia big. Harper Larson works. Hard. She's had no breaks in life, but that only drives her to put it all on the line. Nothing's going to stop her from succeeding at building her catering business. At least until she gets mixed up with the Irish mafia. There's only one, two, who will help her stay alive. Dane and Leo. One look at Harper's sweet curves and irresistible body is all it takes to make two alpha males hungry, and not for food. They know she's going to be theirs. One taste and there's no going back. And when witnessing more than she bargained for puts her life at risk, they'll do whatever it takes to protect her. Warning: Panty melting with two hot heroes and a heroine who's too sweet for her own good. This MFM is all about the woman. No M/M.


Dropping my mouth to her shoulder, I kissed my way across it to her neck, then up to settle at the sweet spot behind her ear. “She taste like sugar?” I asked, my mouth watering for a turn on my knees. Dane lifted his head, looked up at us with a glistening mouth. “Fuck, yes.”

Claiming Bailey Excerpt reveal!

Susan Stoker
Claiming Bailey
Ace Security Book 3
Release Date Dec. 05, 2017

Opposites attract in the third Ace Security novel from New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker. Bailey Hampton will do whatever it takes to keep both herself and her little brother safe from the vicious Inca Boyz gang. Hiding out in Castle Rock, Colorado, is only a temporary solution until she can earn enough money to get out of the state altogether. But when she meets handsome security nerd Nathan Anderson, she discovers a reason to stay and fight for what she wants. Ace Security’s Nathan Anderson has always been the “numbers guy,” not the man any of the firm’s clients look to when their safety is threatened. But from the first time he ran into Bailey, she never made him feel like less of a protector than his brothers. Nathan was attracted to the petite, black-haired pixie with wild tattoos from the start, and by some miracle, she seems to return his interest. But danger stalks Bailey and her brother, so it’s up to Nathan to channel his inner alpha and find a way to end the threat to their lives once and for all—and he’s not giving up Bailey without a fight.


“Bailey! Phone!”
Clayson’s voice rang out through the garage, and Bailey’s heart started to thud in panic. No one ever called for her . . . except Joel’s school.
She grabbed for a rag to wipe her hands and hopped off the small stepladder in front of the SUV. Unlike most of the other mechanics, she needed the extra inches to reach the innards of the engine. She’d been teased, but didn’t care. Her height was what it was. She quickly strode into the small office off the bays of the garage.
Clayson was sitting at his desk holding the ancient phone receiver out to her.
The owner of the body shop met her eyes straight on, but Bailey couldn’t read anything in them. She gave him a small half smile and nervously took hold of the phone.
“Hi. Is this Bailey?”
“Yes. Who is this?” But she knew. From four words, she knew exactly who was on the other end of the line.
“Nathan Anderson. We met last night and you gave me your card.”
“Right.” Bailey wasn’t trying to be gruff or coy, but she’d had a hard night, her self-esteem was as low as it’d been in a long time, Joel was still giving her the silent treatment, and now the first man she’d been remotely interested in for way too many years was speaking in her ear, and it made goose bumps travel down both arms as if he were right there beside her, nibbling on said ear.
“I’d like to make an appointment to bring Marilyn in.”
At the reminder of the silly name he’d given his car, Bailey couldn’t stop the twitch of her lips. “You could’ve done that with Clayson. You didn’t have to talk to me personally.”
“But I wanted to.”
His voice had dropped, and Bailey shivered. As if Clayson knew exactly what was being said, he pushed the appointment book over in front of her. The older man didn’t use a computer; he still used the archaic schedule-book-and-pencil method for scheduling appointments. She swallowed hard and forced herself to sound as businesslike as possible.
“When is good for you?”
“When is your schedule open?”
“What do you mean?” Bailey asked, her brows furrowing in confusion at the question.
“I want you to work on Marilyn. Not someone else. So when do you have time in your schedule to take a look at her?”

Dance Of The Dragon Sorceress Teaser and Exclusive Excerpts! Coming December 1st!


[Siren Menage Everlasting: Erotic Contemporary Fantasy Fairy Tales Menage a Trois Paranormal Romance, M/F/M, HEA]
Basile and Rainger are sworn to defend and foster the baby dragons of the Eastern Kingdom. While searching for the heir to the dragon king's throne, they fall under the spell of a bewitching brunette. Desire takes a back seat to duty because they must find the baby dragon before it falls into the hands of the evil queen, Draconia.
Seeking shelter from a storm for herself and the odd little stray she picked up, Elaina takes refuge in the stronghold of the Knights of the Order of the Dragon. She's discovered sound asleep with the tiny dragon king curled up beside her, and mayhem ensues when the prince, the huntsman, and the seven knights learn firsthand she's not some damsel in distress.
When Draconia learns of the enchanting beauty that has stolen the hearts of the men whom she desires for herself, she sets a plan into motion that endangers Basile and Rainger's love for Elaina before it's barely begun. 



“Tell me, Elaina, are you very afraid of heights?” Basile snorted and answered for her. “Not at all! She is most entranced by the Falls of Innocentio. I was afraid she would take a dive from the painted dome and go swimming down below.” She chuckled and shrugged. “I doubt I’d ever do a swan dive through several hundred feet of space, but he’s right. Heights don’t bother me.” “You can turn into a swan?” Rouge inquired. Feeling a bit playful, she just chortled in reply and allowed them to think what they would. “Then a ride on a dragon would be nothing to you,” Indigo said with assurance in his tone. Basile chuckled quietly at the way her jaw dropped as she looked around. The large cavern had an opening at the other end that looked out onto the cloudy gray sky. Just then a shadow passed overhead. “I think he’s here. Look.” Elaina! a masculine voice suddenly said to her. Elaina stumbled and would’ve gone end over end if Basile and Rainger hadn’t caught her. She could hear them speaking to her, but she focused on the voice in her head. The tiny spark of their connection also flared to life. Is it you, Flappy? We’re coming to you right now. Are you okay? Are you still recovering? You must be exhausted from the journey. Selena said Draconia is coming— A deep chuckle rumbled across their connection. Yes, I know. But I want to hear all about you. Come outside. They reached the opening, and she recalled he’d told her once that there was a ledge jutting from the mountainside that was perfect for landing and taking off. Pausing so as not to be trampled under his feet, she looked out but didn’t see anything. From overhead, Lord Violet suddenly leaped down in front of them. “Welcome back, Lord Violet,” Basile said, sweeping the sky with his gaze and then smiling up at a spot behind her. “Welcome back, Your Highness!” She turned and nearly fell over, shouting in alarm at the massive beast clinging to the mountainside above the ledge. It tilted its head and then curled its lips upward, baring enormous fangs. Her knees buckled, and the absolutely gigantic dragon’s amber eyes widened in alarm when she hit the ground. Meemee, do not be frightened. It is me, your Flappy. He inched closer as the men helped her to stand on shaky legs. Heat emanated from the dragon as he slowly brought his head within arm’s reach and gripped the upper edge of the cavern opening with a scaly, majestic hand. He flexed his claws, and when she looked down, she spotted a slightly bedraggled flowered headband stretched around one claw.


“What witchery is this?” the man dressed in dark blue leather muttered. Diverting her attention to him, she realized he was digging in the pockets of her backpack.

“Hey! You’ll wish you hadn’t done that when I’m done with you, asshole. Stop!” she cried out in genuine alarm when he pulled her pink-rhinestone-encrusted pepper spray from the side pocket.
“I will not be ordered about by you,” the man growled. “It’s my possessions, my sacred space you befouled with your evil magic, you—” He depressed the button at the top and screamed like a sissy girl.
“I told you!” she shouted as her eyes began watering and she coughed. “Ack!”
The russet-haired man escorted her off to one side, wincing and eyes watering, observing her. With a crooked grin, he held out his elbow in a universal gesture of gentlemanly conduct. She took it, and he said, “You tried to stop him. Bleu is not known for his listening skills.”
The men near him doubled over and put their hands to their faces. And blue-leather-dude gagged before howling, “I’m blind! I can’t see!”
The others made similar claims, and as they moved away from the noxious cloud, she looked up at the man and said, “It’s pepper spray. It doesn’t do permanent damage, just stings like hell. It will disperse eventually, but it would help if they moved away from it until then.”
“Sent from the devil!” blue-leather-dude shouted as he rubbed his eyes and yowled in pain.
“Let them suffer for scaring you, at least a little bit,” he replied with a twinkle in his green eyes. “I am Rainger Galterrium. The one who grabbed you is Basile. He and I spotted you in the forest earlier. We thought you were a witch.”
“A witch?” “You were chanting. We didn’t realize you had a companion.” “Chanting? I was singing for Flappy.” “Flappy? Is that what you call him?” Amusement filled his tone. “Well, yes. We only just met in the cave.” “Cave? I know of no caves near here.”
“A fae enchantress,” the silver-haired man said before turning aside to cough.
“Well, there is because that’s how I got here, although I don’t know how to get back, and it closed up behind me…or something.” He drew back and looked at her. “A cave that closed up behind you? Have you ever met a woman named Selena? An enchantress?” “A what?” “Fae?” Elaina replied, turning to him so suddenly Flappy squeaked.
“Just Elaina White. It’s my last name. My family name.”
“Yes, Mistress. A fae. A rather devious fae if memory serves me correctly,” he added in a wry tone. “Cave portals are her specialty.” “Cave portals? That’s a thing?” “Of course, Mistress Elaina.” Elaina shook her head. “I’m just Elaina White, no title. And nope, I’d remember if I’d ever met a fae enchantress.” “Elaina the White. So you are a witch?” Rainger asked.
Flappy jerked his head and then murmured to her. “Nurk-nurk?’
“A family of white witches. This could be a good sign,” he replied to Rainger. “We could use all the help we can get.” “No. I’m not a witch. No woo-woo stuff.” Sheesh! Get it through your heads! “But the…” He pointed at the pepper spray canister. “That is a device for self-protection.” “I see. A witch who says she’s not a witch.” The silver-haired man bowed over her hand and then said, “I’m Lord Violet, the leader of this motley crew.”
“That was his bed I was using? Dang. I tidied the covers back up and everything, too. What’s his problem?”
“I don’t think he means that Motley Crüe, Flapster. Less head-banging and more ass-kicking would be my guess. And I’m really not a witch.” Rainger chuckled as he and Lord Violet drew her out of the chamber, leaving the others to recover, but not before she snagged her backpack and her pepper spray from blue-leather-dude who was in peril of pepper spraying himself again. “We will leave them to recover and for Bleu to repair the disarray you left his bed in.” “He’s very particular about his personal belongings,” Lord Violet said. “Wait. His name is Blue?”
“The what? What the—what? What the fuck? Dragon? That’s symbolic, right?” Even to her own ears her giggling sounded hysterical. This is some sort of breakdown. Did I eat mushrooms in the forest?
“Bleu,” Lord Violet enunciated, drawing out the ‘oo’. “And you’re Veeyolay—you’re Violet! Violet. What the heck?” “No, Violet,” he replied, looking askance at her American English pronunciation of his name. She flicked a thumb back toward the sleeping chamber. The other dude. He’s Blue.” “Bloo. Bloo. Oh, never mind. Yes. He is.” “This is awesome. But you’re Rainger. Why aren’t you named after a color?” Rainger stood looking at her as if she had two heads. “I am not a member of the Order of the Dragon.” “I think she’s trying to cast a spell,” Lord Violet muttered as he stared at her.
Flappy sneezed, and she said, “Oooh! You poor baby! I hope you’re not coming down with a cold, Flapster.”
“She sounds amused.” Rainger watched her closely. “At one point, she seemed like she was having some sort of fit back in the forest. Perhaps this is the same.” “Oh, how rude! I was showing Flappy how to bang his head.” Rainger nodded, remembering that expression. “Dancing! I was dancing! Gah! Doesn’t anyone here ever dance? Never mind. A bunch of guys named after Skittles colors, you’ve probably never heard of dancing.” “The abbey of the Order of the Dragon is certainly no place for frivolity, Mistress,” Lord Violet said, keeping his eyes on Flappy as the little guy stretched his neck out to look around. “He’s not coming down with a cold,” Rainger said as he watched Flappy rather carefully.
“We should’ve sat her down before telling her she’s bonded with a dragon.”
She waved a hand to clear the dust from the air as she hacked. “Ack! I think he must’ve gotten into some dust while I slept. It seems to make him sneeze.” “That’s not sneezing,” Violet said as his scarred eyebrow arched. “And that’s not dust,” Rainger added, a smile forming on his face as he sidled close to her. “It’s ash.” “Ash? There was no ash in the fireplace. I checked, and it was clean.” “It’s ash, because he’s a baby dragon.” “Huh? The fuck you say?” she asked in a perfectly reasonable tone. Well, what else could one say when faced with the impossible? Nothing intelligent, certainly. Turns out it was a good thing Rainger had sidled close. He caught her up under her knees just as the roaring in her ears overtook her other senses.
The last thing she heard was Flappy crying out, “Meemee!”




Thin Ice Release with ARC Review!

Thin Ice
Sleeper SEALs Book 7
Release Date Nov. 28, 2017

The Sleeper SEALs, are former U.S. Navy SEALs recruited by a new CIA counter-terror division to handle solo dark ops missions to combat terrorism on U.S. soil. Logan (Preacher) Bishop, retired Navy SEAL, flew tourists on helicopter rides over the mountains of Montana and occasionally rescued skiers from snowy slopes. With the threat of terrorists developing means of biological warfare, he jumped at the chance to run a mission in Alaska, monitoring the activities of a newly established ISIS cell. Vivian Sanders, a biologist with the Department of Homeland Security, was tasked with finding out what the terrorists were creating. Assigned to work with an agent on a cell in Alaska, she was stunned to find she was being paired with a security specialist and he knew nothing about their cover—living next door to the terrorists and pretending to be married. Precise in his planning and executions of missions, the impulsive Viv drove Logan to distraction and of all his missions, he was certain this one would fail. Learning to work together, Logan and Viv discover opposites do attract. But the secret Logan carries—how he is to finish the mission—is one he is afraid she won’t be able to accept. When the chemicals created by the terrorists next door threatened to be tested on a small town in Alaska, they fight to survive…both hoping their love survives the battle as well. ** Logan Bishop was first introduced in the Saints Protection & Investigation Series (Surviving Love). This book is in the "Sleeper SEAL" connected series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings. Each book in this multi-author branded series is a standalone novel, and the series does not have to be read in order. ****Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature and language that some consider crude, please be warned - for 18+ only! If you do not like alphas with heart who fall in love with strong female characters while dealing with real life issues...again be warned!!*****


A brand new explosively exciting Sleeper SEAL novel from Maryann Jordan! Thin Ice is full of heart thumping action, amazing chemistry, fantastic characters and a great storyline. Logan is the definition of a good hero: He is gorgeous, all alpha, knows how to take charge of a dangerous situation and can make you swoon and sigh and want to jump his bones all within a few heartbeats while Viv is tough as nails, beautiful, smart as hell, and can bring this sexy retired SEAL to his knees. Viv and Logan have some sizzling chemistry. The sex between them is hot and heavy and the amazing action in between their budding feelings kept me on my toes and made me feel alive and bold. 

I really liked how this story comes together. From start to finish this was a roller coaster ride of epic proportions with swoony romance and suspense. I have a heck of a time resisting SEALS stories and Thin Ice is one that is IMPOSSIBLE to resist! I devoured this book!

Thin Ice gets a ADRENALINE SURGING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If you like your stories that are sexy and exciting you will love this one!

Engaging The Billionaire Release with Excerpt!

Ivy Layne
Engaging the Billionaire
Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires Book 8
Release Date Nov. 28, 2017

If we can’t outrun the past, we won’t have a future. The rock on her hand is real, but our engagement is a fake. Once upon a time, I dreamed of buying her a ring, until everything blew up in my face. That was the past, and this is business. At least, it is until I kiss her. It's supposed to be part of the act — and it is — right until my lips touch hers. I forget where we are. I forget why I'm kissing her. I just want more. More of her taste, more of the tug of her fingers in my hair as she pulls me closer. More of her tongue stroking mine, more of her breath in my lungs. Just more. I want everything. Annalise is more than a client. More than my ex. She could be my future. If I can’t keep her safe, I won’t lose her to the past, I’ll lose her forever. Engaging the Billionaire is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It’s the eighth book in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series and reveals more about the notorious Winters family. You can read it on its own, everything you need to know is explained, but once you get a taste you'll want to read the others ;}


Breakfast at Winters House was a lot more entertaining than I remembered. Sophie and Aunt Amelia bickered through the meal, Amelia trying to get Sophie to give her a muffin and Sophie reminding her that muffins weren’t on her low sugar diet.
Gage leaned toward me and whispered, “They do this every morning. Amelia refuses to give up on the muffin.”
“How would you know?” Amelia cut in. She might be in her eighties, but she was sharp as a tack. “You’re usually at the office by the time we eatbreakfast.”
“I know everything,” Gage answered smoothly.
Sophie smothered a giggle as Amelia harrumphed in response. “He’s spending too much time with Aiden. Thinks he’s king of the universe.”
Gage slanted Sophie a look that had her flushing a deep pink. She bit her lower lip and looked away, much to Amelia’s amusement.
Amelia winked at me and said, “They haven’t even gotten married, and already they’re acting like newlyweds.”
Mrs. Williamson came in, carrying a platter of fresh fruit, her hair in its customary twist, her dress neatly starched. Mrs. W had come to Winters House at eighteen, not long after my parents had died, and she’d been keeping us in line ever since. With our parents gone, she was the closest thing to a mother any of us had left.
She set the fruit tray down in front of Amelia, distracting my great-aunt from her quest for a muffin, and stopped beside me. In an uncharacteristic gesture of affection, she gave my shoulder a hard squeeze and leaned down to place a quick kiss on my temple. Tears flooded my eyes at the kiss, so unlike her, as she whispered, "It's good to have you home."
Blinking quickly to chase the moisture from my eyes, I reached up to squeeze her hand before she could step away and, in an effort to lighten the moment, said, "Have you had enough of weddings yet? Two over the holidays and another in a few weeks—if you ever leave us you could make a career as an event planner."
Mrs. W smiled and shook her head. "I'll never have enough of weddings in this house. With all you children moved out and Aidan working so much it was far too quiet around here. Now, all we need is for Gage and Sophie to give us some babies. You don't remember Winters House filled with babies. This house needs children."
With a wink at Aunt Amelia, Mrs. W picked up the empty carafe of coffee and left. Gage and Sophie watched her go, their jaws dropped and eyes wide.
Amelia sat back, picked up her coffee, and said, "Mrs. W is getting saucy."
"I think it's Abel's influence," Sophie said, quietly. Able was the cook. He'd been with us since I was in high school, but I'd never had any hint there might be something going on between him and Mrs. W.
I leaned forward and looked across the table at Sophie. "What do you know?" I asked, my voice low. Mrs. W had eyes in the back of her head and ears like a hawk.

Soon, I’m knee-deep in the English mud - and on-set drama. But all our fake-smoldering is getting my very real panties in a twist. It turns out, Jax is so much more than just a reckless playboy. He makes me want to forget our ‘arrangement’.. and break all the rules. 

Can our pretend romance turn to something real? Or will scheming actresses, control-freak PR crews, and a pesky little thing called love ruin the best (fake) relationship of my life?

I just freaking ADORED Jax..his accent and the way he was described had my heart instantly flip-flopping inside my chest. I wanted to reach within the book and snuggle him and climb him like a tree! And Penny, well I can absolutely relate to her. She doesn't think she is anything special or beautiful but I thought she was stunning and just perfect and the way she and Jax had such a good friendship and when he seeks her help through the ruse of a fake girlfriend, I could feel the chemistry and the love that blossomed from simple friendship. This story is completely romantic, charming and most assuredly enchanting! Its a wonderful story that I can't wait to read again!
