Title: Someone Like You

Author: Alexandra Silva

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: January 31st

About Someone Like You:

Dorian Anson is my friend. She’s the only person who’s ever questioned my smiles. My jokes. The one liners that have our friends shaking their heads at me.
I’ve lived my life on those smiles. They never failed me, until her.

I wasn’t counting on her when I designed my front. I never imagined the possibility of someone like her coming into my life.

The wild hair, the kind smile and those eyes that see everything.

She was the girl with the beautiful soul, pretty face and whole heart. But hearts aren’t made to stay whole.

I watched hers break. I watched her tears fall. I watched as her world tilted on its axis and shattered at her feet.

This girl.

She sees me, all parts of me—the truths I try to hide, the secrets I bury. What’s mine and what’s not.

She sees it all, and I can only hope the truth isn’t too much. That she won’t walk away.

That she won’t leave me…alone.

We both have a past. We have ghosts. We have fears.

I’m hoping that somehow in the end, we’ll have each other too.

I’ve never needed anyone before her, and I know I’ll never want anyone else after her.

There is no one like her.

My pretty girl.

Dorian.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Google it? That’s your plan?” She marked me with a glare that wasn’t half as playful as the one she usually gave me.

“That’s the plan, pretty girl, once you’ve told me what’s wrong.” I sat her back down on one of the stools and pushed the flute of wine away. “Before you try to tell me it’s nothing, I can tell something’s up.”

“I’m tired and grouchy.” She sighed gruffly as she reached for her drink, her jaw clenching as I took it from her and put it far enough away that she couldn’t get to it.

“You need to take a break, baby. You’re running yourself into the ground.”

“I’m fine, I’m just trying to get this case done. But there’s something that I’m not seeing and it’s bugging the crap out of me.”

“What do you mean?”

“My brother is a neurosurgeon, my best friend is a cardiothoracic surgeon, you’re a plastic surgeon…do you know what you all have in common?”

“We’re fucking amazing?”

“Apart from that.” She rolled her eyes as I sat down on the stool next to her and reached for her glass. I took a small sip before I handed it to her. “None of you have a clean slate. All of you have had something go wrong.”

She looked at me apologetically, like she was picking at a healing scab.

“It’s impossible to have a clean record when it comes to surgery.”

“Exactly, that’s why I was up crazy o’clock this morning going through my paperwork, trying to figure out what I’m missing.”

“You need to rest, Dorian.”

“I can’t, it’s not that easy…my brain won’t switch off.

“I get that, but you can’t run on empty.”

“I won’t lose this case, it’s my record. My career. It’s a permanent mark…”

I got that she was driven. I got that she had ambitions. I did. But, my worry wasn’t about her career, I knew that she would manage to wipe the floor with whoever came at her. My worry was for her wellbeing. Her health was far more important than another notch on her wins tally.

“What am I missing, Jake?” she gritted as she finished her drink.

“I don’t know, Dorian, but at some point, you’re going to have to decide if it’s worth risking your sanity and wellbeing…Daniel needs you.” I cringed inside, I knew that was below the belt.

“That’s not fair.” She pushed up from her seat and wandered over to the sink. She washed her hands like they were covered in sticky, invisible dirt. Scrubbing until her skin was red and raw. “Everything I do is for my son. Everything.”

“I get that you’ve worked hard to get to where you are. I admire how dedicated you are to getting to the top. I love that about you. I love that you push and keep pushing until things go your way and you get to where you need to be.”

“But?” She spun towards me, her hands tightening around the edge of the sink on either side of her. Her knuckles so white that they were a stark contrast to the dark granite.

“But there are times when we need to pull back, so we can press on another day.” I stood from the stool I was sat on and ambled to her. Her body strained flush to mine as she looked up at me with resignation in her eyes. I fucking hated having to be the one to push for her to slow down, but on this particular occasion, it was the best thing for her.

“I’m so close to getting where I want to be, Jake. So close I swear my fingertips can graze my goal.” She sighed, her breath pushing out of her raggedly as I anchored my hands on either side of hers. Her heaving chest pressed into mine.

“Pretty girl, you are an incredible force to be reckoned with, and anyone who thinks otherwise…they just have no idea. This is one wave, there’s a whole sea of them you can ride. Don’t let this be the one that drowns you. It’s not worth it, nothing is worth more than you are.”

Her eyes flitted from mine to my lips, the corner of her mouth quirked up as her tongue swept over her pout.

“Take a break, look after yourself. Please.” Her eyes rounded as I cupped her face.

“You’re not playing fair.”

“I will never play fair when it comes to you and Daniel. There is no line I won’t cross when it comes to keeping what’s mine safe.”

“We’re not your property.”

“Property?” I laughed at the way she thought I saw her and Daniel as belongings. She was fucking clueless even with the way her eyes drew on mine and her pout pinched. “It’s fucking biology, Dorian. You and Daniel are a part of my biology, my anatomy. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep my heart intact.”

Her eyes widened, the green so vibrant that the golden flecks didn’t blend and bleed with it.

“Alright. Fine. God, you’re impossible, you know that?” She cupped my face lightly, her nails affectionately grazing the stubble on the underside of my jaw.

“I love you, Dorian, but fuck me, you don’t make things easy.”

“Do you want easy?” she whispered into the hollow of my throat.

“I want you.” That was as simple and easy as it got. I wanted her and Daniel. That was all, and I would never let them go.

Excerpt
I’ve had
bullets rip through my flesh.
I’ve been
beaten with a piece of firewood, my skull bashed in by men who killed my mother
and father, men who kidnapped my brother.
I’ve had
shrapnel rip through my face and been so dehydrated, I saw goddesses I didn’t
know existed.
I’ve
killed, I’ve maimed, I’ve driven through fire, I’ve parachuted into active
gunfire.
No pain
I’ve ever felt before measures up to this.
She’s in bed,
so peaceful, the machines communicating for her. There’s no ventilator. This is
all about Lily’s mind and heart finding their way back to some semblance of
wholeness. The machines can tell us what’s wrong. But they cannot aid her.
Machines
are useless now. It’s Lily’s very human body that needs to do the work to bring
her back.
Me, too.
I cannot be
a robot. A robot is a machine.
I need to
be a very real, very raw human.

Title: Love and Pancakes

Author: Lacey Black

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Love and Pancakes:

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Our first time together isn’t going to be on the floor or on the table.”

“I’m not opposed to the counter,” I whisper, apparently loud enough for him to hear.

Rhenn chuckles. “I promise you, our first time is going to be better than this,” he adds, nodding toward the floor, and believe it or not, I’m disappointed by this development. “Right now, my friends are probably getting ready for our day of sailing. We’re going to head back to my boat, you’re going to throw on a swimsuit, and I’m going to enjoy the fuck out of watching you prance around my boat. And tonight? I’m going to love sliding into that shitty-ass fold out bed, and do you know why?”

“Why?” My mouth is Sahara dry.

“Because you’re going to be beside me.”

“And because you’ll get sex?” I tease with a smile.

He shakes his head. “No, no sex tonight. Not with Nick and Meghan on board. When I finally have my way with you, there’ll be no one else around to hear your moans, Angel. No one else will know how many times I’ve made you come. No one but me.”

Then he kisses me again with a hunger that feels as if it won’t ever be quenched. Like he might die if he doesn’t have another taste. I know right then and there, I’m in trouble. I’m completely over my head with this man, which is why I must keep my heart completely out of the equation. In fact, I’m leaving it here at the house. No way am I taking it with me, allowing it to catch one glimpse of the man who kisses me like I’m the very air he breathes.

“And at the end of the two weeks, we walk away.” I say the words aloud, as confirmation to him, but to me, as well. Saying them makes it true, right?

“At the end of my time here, you probably won’t hear from me again.” Even though those are the words I expected to hear, actually listening to him say them causes a little hitch in my heartbeat. See? That’s why my heart is going to be locked in the cabinet at home and not allowed anywhere near my time with Rhenn.

“Just promise me one thing,” I say, pushing aside the heavy feeling in my chest and digging deep for the girl who’s engaging in a no-strings relationship.

“Anything.”

“Promise me you won’t fall in love with me.” I mean it as a joke, as a reminder of what this really is, but I don’t anticipate the catch in my breath and the slight pang of sadness when his eyes twinkle with laughter.

“No worries there, Angel. Love isn’t my thing.”

Review

Marissa’s life is centered around her family and the Bed and Breakfast that is a family business as well. She prefers to stay in the background, and she doesn’t see herself as the sweet and sexy woman that she is. The damage left behind due to a fire has brought Rhenn into her life and although he is nice to admire, she knows that he would never be interested in someone like her.

Rhenn is an electrician who has had his heart broke in the past and he is not about to go down that road again. He is quite content living the single life and the longest relationship he is looking for is one night.

From the moment that he meets Marissa the sparks fly. He knows that she is not one night stand material, but when she suggests a friends with benefits relationship how can he say no. They both know their arrangement has an expiry date but what happens when it is time for him to leave?

This is a great start to a new series as we get to meet some of the characters we already love as well as get introduced to some new ones. Hot chemistry and humorous banter as two people find what they didn’t know they were looking for.

 

Benson Bayou Beauregard is the president of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC, and the grandson of the Sergeant at Arms for the Dixie Wardens MC. He’s a mountain of a man and the warden of a prison, and there’s only one thing that can scare him—being told that he’s the father of a three-year-old little girl.

A three-year-old little girl that has no clue who he is. Hell, he only finds out about the little cherub when a woman from child protective services comes by and rocks his world before leaving the girl in his shocked arms.

Every single thing he thinks he knows goes up in a cloud of smoke.

To make matters worse, the woman that he’s been trying to convince to give him a chance takes one look at the little girl and tells him that he’s just not in the right place to handle both of them.

But Bayou was never one to back down from a challenge.

He can handle a three-year-old girl that acts exactly like him, and he can more than take on the fiery red-head that sets flame to his blood while he’s at it.

 Release Date: January 15, 2019

Blurb

 

The world’s sexiest firefighter is about to get a
second chance with the virgin next door…
He’s bossy, arrogant, and so ridiculously hot he should come
with a warning label and a pair of flame retardant coveralls.
He’s also the boy who broke my heart when we were in high
school.
I want to move in next door to Ryan O’Dell the way I want to
be the virgin gamer geek suddenly in charge of running my sister’s sex toy
factory. Too bad both are written in my stars.
Yeah, I’m the world’s oldest virgin code-writing nerd. 
And he’s the world’s hottest firefighter. 
And even though he intimidates the heck out of me, I can’t
seem to control my libido when he’s around.
Where is my dignity? My self-respect? My panties?
Seriously…. Have you seen them? Anyone?
Maybe they’re hiding in his bedroom. With my heart.
Yeah, I know. I’m hosed.  
So hosed.
Hosed is a steamy, fun romantic comedy between a
firefighter and the virgin nerd next door, complete with a pet raccoon,

Review

Cassie left her hometown Happy Cat to pursue her dreams in San Francisco. When her sister needed to get away Cassie returned home to ensure her sister’s business, Sunshine Sex Toys factory, would still be there when she returned. She is a self described virgin code-writing nerd so the last thing she needs is to be living across the street from high school crush who never knew how she felt.

Ryan is enjoying his life. He loves his job as a firefighter, is close to his family and has a pet raccoon. When he comes face to face with Cassie under the most unlikely of circumstances, he knows she is what he has been missing.

Humorous banter, zany townspeople, five alarm chemistry and two people who have found their other half make this a story you don’t want to miss. I hope that these authors team up again in the future.

Love isn’t an emotion—it’s a chemical reaction.

Eventually, the fire burns out.

That’s what I’ve always believed.

Is there?

“A sexy, heartfelt rocker romance that packs an unforgettable emotional punch.”— Mary, USA Today

A star on the rise

Logan Cage, lead singer for the hottest band out of Austin, has a dark past. And a secret that he can’t outrun. For years he’s been trying to find redemption in the spotlight. But on the eve of what could be his biggest break, it almost slips away.

Rock music’s shattered princess

Tori Grayson had it all. Money. Fame. And an adoring husband to share the spotlight. But tragedy struck and took it all away. Six years later and she’s reinvented herself, founding a record label to keep the memory of those she lost alive.

Neither of them was looking for love.

But sometimes fate has other plans.

Every story deserves a soundtrack. And theirs is epic.

 

About the Author:
I grew up in California with a dream of moving to Seattle to become a rock star.

But when the grunge thing didn’t work out (I never even made it to the Washington border) I set my sights on Austin, Texas.

After quickly becoming immersed in the Sixth Street Music scene…and discovering I couldn’t actually sing, I decided to do the next best thing—write kick ass romances about hot rockstars and the women that steal their hearts.
