Hopeless Romantic

Reading is my favorite past time. I enjoy opening a book and knowing that there will always be a new experience. My genre of choice is romance.  Whether contemporary or historical, series or standalone. I love them all.

Up until two years ago, I was living large and my life’s priorities were anchored to three things – my NBA stardom, money and celebrity. 

I was also a colossal dick.

Until one night turned my world upside down and I suffered unspeakable loss. That event changed the man I was and made me a widowed-single father. 

Now I’m a desperate parent trying to raise my special needs son and find him a trustworthy live-in nanny.

Grad student Brooklyn Hayes may be the one, with her single-minded focus on caring for my son and finishing her Master’s degree. She’s the perfect fit for our needs.

Maybe too perfect…with her bright smile, nurturing kindness and gentle touch. Caleb isn’t the only one who’s fallen for her.

I don’t know when or how it happened, but she changed the game for me. Turning my losing streak into a winning second-half.





Playboy's Heart (Playboy Royal #2) by: Nana Malone

Playboy's Heart (Playboy Royal #2)  - Nana Malone



Whether by blood or by heart, there's no emotion more powerful than love. Malone manages to drive that point home with the ultimate double team. Playboy's Heart gives voice to love's power with family devotion and the temptation of romance. Xander is the heartache that I never saw coming, yet couldn't seem to put down. Two brothers could have never seemed more different, Lex was a man of action. He was in you face, before he thought things through. Xander is a quiet storm that plans ahead, before he drops the boom on you. Imani is the happy ending he never knew he wanted, until someone tried to take it away. Now all bets are off and the beast has come out to play. An intriguing romance bundled within a dangerous mystery delivers a breathtaking experience. (4.5 stars)











Very Irresistible Bachelors #2 

Release Date: April 14

Everyone associates the name Ryker Winchester with money, power plays, negotiations…it's what I'm good at. In the boardroom, I get exactly what I want. In the bedroom, there's no difference.

I was wholly unprepared for Heather.

She’s a feisty single mom, challenging me in ways no woman ever has. I can’t get enough of her. The way she gives in to me is intoxicating, but I need more than hot nights and sexy dates. 

When she introduces me to her daughter, I fall for that little girl hook, line and sinker.  

Heather’s been hurt before. She’s hanging by a thread and doesn’t trust easily, but I want more than just some fun. How can I show her that we can build something incredible together?

Court Kensington is a thorn in my side.


I’m hired to clean up his badboy image, which would’ve been easy if my life wasn’t falling apart.


First, I catch my movie star husband having an affair with his co-star. Then when I return to work, my job is at stake, because Court has gotten himself into trouble...again.

Instead of getting him back in line, I find myself falling for his charm. And into his bed. And against the wall.




And, and, and…


Except Kensington charm shouldn’t work on me. Not when I’ve sworn to never ever sleep with a client.

I had good intentions.

I really did.

But we all know the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Are you dying to get your hands on Waiting for my Queen by Georgia Cates?! You are in for a treat. We have a chapter reveal to hold you over until release day,  March 3rd!










All I’ve ever wanted was to marry for love.


But girls like me don’t have that luxury.


We are used as pawns in a game we can’t control.


The game? It’s called Mafia.


I was foolish enough to try to change the rules… and I lost.






She was promised to me years ago.


And he dared to take her from me.


Dared to touch what was mine.


I put an end to that.


I hope he’s enjoying the view from his dirt room.






My beloved’s killer placed a ruby ring on my finger and called me his queen.


But that red gem symbolizes something different for me.


It represents the blood shed by those I love most.


Hell was empty the day we wed.


Because the devil was standing before me and said “I do.”






I saw her as a possession.


A shiny toy I didn’t want other boys to play with.


But she’s so much more.


Beautiful and brave and strong and broken all at once.


She tastes like everything I’ve ever wanted.






Hidden and patient.


I wait for the perfect time to seek my revenge.


But slowly, I feel him possessing me.


His heart is full of darkness… and I still want every inch of him.


Hard as I try, I can’t escape loving this beautiful monster.






I’m waiting patiently because I already know that she’s mine.


Mine in a way that no one will ever understand.


Even if she hasn’t yet realized it.


For love, I’d do anything.


For her, I’d do everything.

Chapter 5


Luca Rossini




New York, 1978


My father’s consigliere, Arrigo, also known as his right-hand man, comes into our conference room where we’re sitting around the table. He’s one of the few people without the last name Rossini who are allowed into this room.


“The Bellini women have arrived. They’re waiting for you in the living room.”


My father goes to the wet bar and chuckles as he pours six glasses of whiskey. “They came. You know what this means, don’t you?”


“It means they have no allies willing to go to battle for them. They’re out of options,” my brother Stephan says.


“Exactly. And that means we’ve won the war. The Bellini assets are ours.”


And Emilia Bellini is finally mine.


Everyone takes a glass of whiskey, even my youngest brother Enzo who is only sixteen.


“You should be the one to lead us in this toast, Luca. This is your victory.”


I didn’t do this alone. It began with my grandfather’s foresight so many years ago. “From long ago until now, here’s to all of the decisions that led us to this place.”


“But mostly your clever decisions, son. Your bravery,” my father says.


We click our glasses together and toss back the whiskey. Enzo coughs and sputters much like I did the first time I had a shot of whiskey.


“Such a mamma’s boy.” Dante loves ragging on Enzo.


I place my hand on top of my baby brother’s head and muss up his hair. “What’s the matter? Can’t handle your liquor?”


“I can handle it. It just went down the wrong way.”


“Sure, it did, little bro.”


I was younger than Enzo when I had my first shot of whiskey. I still remember the way it burned on the way down. I also remember pretending that I could handle it although I wasn’t certain that someone hadn’t swapped the liquor out with lighter fluid.


My father slams his glass on the table. “Come on, boys. Time to collect our spoils of war.”


This moment has been a long time coming. As I walk to where the women are waiting, it suddenly doesn’t feel real to me. I’m so accustomed to delays that I find myself wondering what the next one will be. But I remind myself that we’re in charge now, and there’ll be no more excuses. Emilia is going home with me tonight.


The six Bellini women are seated when we enter the living room, and my eyes bounce back and forth between the daughters seated on each side of their mother. Both are beauties and very similar, but one is much lovelier than the other. I can’t decide which one is Emilia because it’s been too many years since I’ve seen her.


“Welcome to our home,” my mother says as she comes into the room.


Sofia smiles, but the hostility in her expression isn’t disguised. I don’t fault her for that, though. We’ve earned her hatred a hundred times over.


“Your home is as lovely as I remember it.” Her tone is ice cold.


“How long has it been since you were last here?”


“Many, many years.”


“That’s a shame. Looking back on it now, you and I should have spent more time together and raised the children to know each other. Perhaps things would have gone differently if we had.”




I focus my attention on the girl sitting to Sofia’s left. The more beautiful one. The older-looking one. The more frightened-looking one with tears pooling in her lower lids.


Dark brown hair cascading over her shoulders and down her arms, the ends nuzzling against her bare skin like a frightened child clinging to its mother. Almond-shaped deep-caramel eyes surrounded by lush dark lashes. A few scattered freckles across the bridge of her perfectly shaped nose. Plump, glossy coral lips.


In my wildest dreams, my betrothed didn’t grow up to be this beautiful. And it annoys the hell out of me because I don’t want to be attracted to her.


I want to make her suffer.


Sofia Bellini grips the hand of the girl in question. “Please, Marco. Swear to me on your honor that my daughter will be safe with you.”


My father chuckles. “Emilia is going to give us babies, heirs to the Rossini empire. There is no safer place for her than with our family. You know that.”


Sofia and the girl beside her, my Emilia, embrace one another and sob. Her grandmother and sisters cluster around her, doing the same. It’s pathetic. I would have expected less of a display from Bellinis. Certainly not this spectacle.


My betrothed has weaknesses. Those will need to be eliminated before she influences our sons with that nonsense.


“That’s more than enough of that,” I tell them.


She lifts her chin, and her eyes meet mine for the first time. Inside those deep-caramel orbs, I see something I like very much: rage. There during one heartbeat and gone the next, it was only a fleeting flash. But I saw it and I don’t mistake it for what it is.


This girl is going to be so much fun to break.


“Come, Emilia. I’m ready to take you home.”


“She won’t be living here?” the grandmother asks.


“I have my own home. She’ll live there with me.”


“You didn’t mention anything about her living outside of the Rossini compound.”


“I don’t think we’re obligated to tell you anything more than we wish to tell you, Sofia. In case you’ve forgotten, we have full control,” my father says.


Soft murmurs pass back and forth between Emilia and her mother, and I’m unable to decipher what they’re saying. And it pisses me off.


Reaching for her upper arm, I tug. “That’ll be all of that.”


When she’s on her feet, I realize just how small she is. A dainty little princess to break. That’ll be fun.


“Where’s your suitcase?”


“The foyer.”


“We’ll pick it up on the way out.”


There’s an overlapping of goodbyes and I-love-yous as Emilia and I leave, but her mother’s voice bleeds through the noise. “When will I see her again?”


It’s never been my intention to keep Emilia from her family. I see no value in separating them, but that’s something I’ll keep to myself for now.


Continuing to walk forward, I don’t look back. “You’ll see her when I decide I want you to see her.”


I’m pleased when I manage to get her into the back seat of my car without a bunch of carrying on.


“Where to?” Sal asks.




“Yes, sir.”


During the drive to my house, I don’t say a word to Emilia. I want her fear to escalate to the highest level possible. And I believe I’m successful as I listen to the sound of her rapid, unsteady breath filtering through the silence.


She takes a final deep breath and blows it out slowly through pursed lips when Sal parks the car inside the garage. I’d love to know what’s going through that mind of hers right now.


“Welcome home, Emilia.”


No response from her.


No surprise from me.


I fetch her suitcase from the trunk, and she follows me through the house as I lead her upstairs to the bedroom. Our bedroom. “You’ll get the full tour tomorrow. Right now, you and I have some loose ends to tie up.”


“What kind of loose ends?”


“You’ll see.”


I place her suitcase on the bench at the foot of the bed and point at the door to our left. “That’s the bathroom. There’s a pregnancy test waiting for you on the vanity. When you’ve finished, show me the results.”


“I don’t know how to take a pregnancy test.”


“You can read, can’t you?”


“Of course, I can.”


“Follow the directions on the box.”


“Why are you making me do this?”


“I have to be certain that you aren’t pregnant with Moretti’s bastard.”


“I’m not pregnant.”


“Then take the test and prove it.”




There it is again. That flash of anger in her eyes.


That’s it. Come out, angry princess. I want to play with you.


She marches into the bathroom and shuts the door with a firm thud. A brave little princess she is to do that under my roof.


Several minutes tick by and she emerges from the bathroom. “The directions say it takes two hours for the results to appear.”


“I’m aware.”


Two hours. What shall we do while we wait?


She crosses her arms, looking around my bedroom. Avoiding my eyes.


“Come and sit next to me. I won’t bite… unless you’re into that kind of thing.”


“I’m fine where I am.”


“I’m not asking.” I pat the bed. “Sit beside me.”


She does as I tell her, but the scowl on her face lets me know that she isn’t pleased about it. “Happy?”




“You’ve gotten everything you wanted. What do you have to be unhappy about?”


“Our union should have been a joyous occasion. A beautiful wedding where our friends and families came together to celebrate our marriage.”


“A marriage between us was never going to be a joyous occasion.”


“It could have been, but you chose to make things difficult and unpleasant. That means I was forced to do things I would have preferred to avoid.”


“I know the specifics of how you murdered Nic. You took pleasure in what you did to him.”


“Yes. I rather enjoyed it.”


“Only someone evil could admit that.”


I expected her to bring up Moretti sooner or later, but hearing his name on her lips pisses me off more than I anticipated.


“Would you like to know what his last words were?”


She looks at me a moment before answering. “No.”


“You really don’t want to know what your beloved boy said to me while he was lying there in a pool of his own blood dying?”


“I doubt anything you tell me would be the truth. And I know what Nic’s last words were to me. Those are the ones that I’ll always hold dear inside my heart.”


There’s my confirmation. Marrying Moretti wasn’t about not marrying me. She truly loved him.


“Suit yourself. If you can live without knowing what he said about you, then I can live without telling you.”


“I can live with it. The question is how do you live with yourself after brutally taking the life of an innocent man?”


“Moretti wasn’t innocent. He tried to take what belonged to me.”


“Contrary to what you may believe, I have never belonged to you.”


“We were promised to each other by our grandfathers. Betrothed. I was told my entire life that you were to be my wife.”


“It’s 1978. A betrothal between us when we were children should never have happened.”


“But it did happen. And you will always belong to me whether you like it or not.”


One of her brows lifts. “Unless that pregnancy test proves that I’m carrying Nic’s baby? You won’t have me then, will you?”


I had hoped that Emilia’s Catholic faith, or maybe Nicolò’s fear of Alessandro, had persuaded them to not have sex. I see now that any hope I had was in vain.


The thought of Moretti putting his filthy, inferior hands on my betrothed enrages me. But what’s even worse is that she let him. She wanted him to touch her and he did. Now, she could be pregnant.


I can’t handle it.


I’m so pissed off that I don’t trust myself to be in the same room with her right now.


I get up with the intentions of leaving, but I stop when I hear Emilia’s low chuckle. Moving to stand in front of her, I lean down until we’re so close that I have to blink a few times to focus on her eyes.


She doesn’t blink.


She doesn’t cower.


She stares right back at me.


“I’m going to do you a kindness, which is very out of character for me, and I’m going to leave this room. While I’m gone, I’d suggest that you get on those little Catholic knees of yours and pray very hard that the pregnancy test you just took is negative. Or we’re going to have a huge problem on our hands.”

He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve-year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.

Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.

First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.

Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)

Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)

Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.

And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married...in a month.

Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.

Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.

And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.

So what’s a girl like me to do?



I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.

Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I'm crushing hard.)

She’s really cute. Like seriously.

And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)

I can see why Henry loves her.

I can see why everyone loves her.

I can see why I’m falling for her.

I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.

Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Chicago and away from the happy couple.

Author: Sara Whitney


Genre: Contemporary Romance






About Tempting Taste:

Can a grumpy baker and a brash marketing wiz blend perfectly? Or are they a recipe for disaster?

Take one taciturn baker

After a chaotic childhood, all Erik Andersson wants is peace and stability. What a shock, then, to find himself quitting on the spot after a tornado of a woman storms his workplace and exposes the toxicity of his boss. Although Erik should be focused on locking down his next gig, he instead agrees to a wild business proposal from the beautiful chaos agent intent on upending his life.

Add one talkative redhead

Josie Ryan spent years chasing her mother's approval and now fills that void by wowing clients with her buzzy PR events. So when the brooding baker with the gorgeous cakes ends up jobless, Josie leaps at the chance to prove her worth by turning his talent into an empire--assuming she can work alongside a reserved hunk who charms her with every grumble.

Apply heat and watch them sizzle

Keep it professional. That's the first rule of a good partnership. Soon enough, though, Josie and Erik have dropped their defensive walls to explore the potential of their sweet-and-salty relationship. But as the business grows, their clashing definitions of success threaten their happy equilibrium. Can they resolve their differences to form the perfect fusion, or will the heat force one of them out of the kitchen?


Tempting Taste is book 2 in Tempt Me, Sara Whitney's hot and humorous contemporary romance series. It's a standalone novel with no cliffhangers, so grab your favorite pastry and get reading!
