COWBOYS NEED NOT APPLY BY ROBERT TATE MILLER

 

 

Release DateAugust 13, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

No, prima donna ballerina Jessica Carmichael isn’t interested in the rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy she met in physical therapy. In fact, she’s actively uninterested in his cocky smile, and his go-with-the-flow attitude, and how his silly little bets make her work harder than ever to fix her knee. She’d like nothing more than to strangle him, if she wasn’t so busy thinking about kissing him.

Matt Walker's best hope of getting back in the saddle is charming Jessica into teaching him ballet. He needs to get back on the bronc…even if he has to get there in tights. Only the uptight ballerina lives in a completely different world, one he wouldn't touch with a ten-foot mechanical bull. But maybe the one thing she needs more than control is to lose control for once—with him.

WILD WITH YOU (THE CONNOR FAMILY) BY LAYLA HAGEN

 

 

Release DateAugust 14, 2018

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Lori


Planning weddings is my dream job. As a single Mom, I live vicariously through my brides. From picking the dress to cutting the cake, I’m there every step of the way. 

When I meet the best man at the latest wedding, sparks fly. Graham Frazier is more than I bargained for. The charismatic soccer club owner is disillusioned with marriage after his divorce, so it’s part of my job to make sure he won’t slip any sarcastic jokes in his best man’s speech. 
It’s not part of my job to notice his washboard abs, or that he kisses like a dream. Graham’s touch is sizzling. 

Before I know it, he bosses me into accepting gifts and spending the night at his house (his excuse is good: I can’t possibly drive after working a wedding, can I?)
I say yes to both. There are no two ways about it. I have the hots for this bossy man. 

Graham

Since my divorce, weddings aren’t my favorite events. But when my best friends decide to tie the knot, I promise to throw them a party they won’t forget. 
I was counting on sitting through long hours of preparations, but I didn’t count on meeting someone like Lori Connor. 

I pursue her relentlessly, wanting those long legs wrapped around me and her smooth skin under my lips. 

Then I meet her son, and that boy charms me even faster than his mother did. Before I know it, he has me wrapped around his little finger.

But are Lori and I ready for our lives to intertwine in ways we haven’t even imagined before?

Wild With YouWild With You by Layla Hagen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

 

When life doesn't go quite how we planned, it's the bumps in the road that point us in the right direction. Graham and Lori hit a few walls before they found themselves where they needed to be. Wild with You takes a look at the road less traveled. Lori had big dreams, but her dreams veered off course when she was given her greatest blessing. Her little boy. In that instant she found the courage to begin again and create a secure life for herself and her child. When Graham comes into her life, his bruises are a lot less visible, but no less traumatic. Somehow they find the strength to take a risk on an emotion that was not kind the first time around, but could be the start of something beautiful this time. Hagen firmly ensconces a place within the heart of her readers with heartwarming tales and hard to forget characters.

Release DateAugust 14, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

A billionaire silver-screen hero finds a real-life heroine in this sizzling romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello.

 

Sage Revere follows her instincts, which have led to an oddball career as a plant psychologist. As a side project, she also helps strangers find happiness. Sage has a gift for knowing who needs her help, and the brooding hunk of a loner she meets in a coffee shop certainly fits the bill. She can feel it.

 

On-screen, Eric Westerly is the hottest superhero there is. Offscreen, he’s out of rehab; incognito in London; and reevaluating his life, his career, and his broken family ties. All he wants is to be alone. Then along comes some daft plant whisperer who gets under his skin. She’s also sweet, sexy, and irresistible. But what’ll happen when she finds out who he is—that underneath the gray spandex, he’s just a regular guy with a Batcave?

 

But Eric isn’t the only one with a few secrets. And when the masks come off, Sage and Eric are going to have to trust each other if they want a Hollywood happy ending.

REVIEWHOLLYWOOD HEIR (WESTERLY BILLIONAIRE) BY RUTH CARDELLO

 

Hollywood Heir (Westerly Billionaire Book 4)Hollywood Heir by Ruth Cardello

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Humor and heartache are an odd combination, but Cardello makes it work. Hollywood Heir is not your average poor rich man story. Eric wears the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's haunted by abandonment issues, family problems self recrimination. All as the world watches. Self destruction has landed him in a dark place. Until fate sees fit to shine some light his way. Sage is a plant psychologist. She may seem odd, is often kooky, but has a good head on her shoulders and an even more beautiful heart. She has a gift for reading people and she can see Eric's pain. Can she help him before he completely self-destructs? A broken hero, an unlikely heroine and an empathetic ear are hard to resist when they come from the imagination of Ruth Cardello. A nice warm hug for the heart.

SYNOPSIS

 

Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.

Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.

But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.

Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.

Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

Outrageous by Marie Force

 

 

OUTRAGEOUS (QUANTUM) BY MARIE FORCE

 

 

Release Date: August 14, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

She drives him crazy… In more ways than one. 

Every time Leah Holt encounters Quantum Production’s chief counsel, Emmett Burke, the only thing she can think of is how much she wants to lick him. Everywhere. She’s never had that kind of reaction to a man, and the fact that he’s a much-older colleague makes her out-of-control attraction to him far more complicated than it should be. Every day, she brings a new legal question to Emmett, hoping to catch his attention and make him see her as a grown woman who wants him desperately. She walks a fine line in trying to remain professional as the assistant to superstar Marlowe Sloane while lusting after Marlowe’s sexy attorney. 

To Emmett, Leah is a fly buzzing around his head who can’t be swatted away. She’s always there, looking at him, asking him legal questions that have nothing to do with his specialty in entertainment law and generally driving him mad with her overt sexiness and sassy mouth. He wants to toss her over his desk and run the sass right out of her, which is hardly the way a professional who loves his job should behave in the office—especially with a young, fresh, sexy colleague. As the author of the company’s policy on inter-office dating, he’s painfully aware of all the reasons he should stay far, far away from her and the tantalizing temptation she represents. 

Then Leah gets her chance to step up for Emmett, to help him through an unfortunate “accident” and to show him she’s much more than just a smart mouth and a sexy body. When she realizes she has genuine feelings for him—and that those feelings are returned—she wonders if he will take a chance on her or continue to hold her at arm’s length. Slowly but surely, she chips away at his resistance, and he begins to crave more of her. But Emmett knows if he’s going to let her in, he has to let her all the way in. What will she think when he introduces her to his BDSM lifestyle? Will she still want him the way she does now or will she run away in horror? And what will he do if she runs away? 

When Leah confronts a dangerous threat from her past, Emmett is forced to acknowledge that his “annoying little fly” has worked her way firmly into his heart—and his bed. 

Also, join the entire Quantum team at the company’s vineyard in Napa for Hayden and Addie’s wedding! 

Contains the full TAME edition in the back for those who want all the romance with a less scorching heat level!

REVIEWOUTRAGEOUS (QUANTUM) BY MARIE FORCE

 

Outrageous (Quantum, #7)Outrageous by Marie Force

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


They have no use for forever. Happy endings are not in the plan. What began as a fiery attraction is beginning to burn out of hand. Outrageous is a battle between seduction and emotion. Emmett and Leah are a force of nature that is hard to contain. Marie Force brings on the heat, with heart and humor coming along for the ride. Larger than life, hard to resist and ready to take the fall. Stylishly sexy with a hint of over the top. Getting caught up is easy when Force is at the wheel.

UNDER HIS COMMAND (DECADENCE L.A.) BY MADDIE TAYLOR

 

 

Release DateAugust 16, 2018

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Navy SEAL Commander Flynn Dalton is looking forward to the next chapter in his life. After two decades of active duty, he's home and ready to put down roots. Though his days are spent training new recruits at Coronado Island, his nights finally belong to him. And there's only one thing the commander wants to do: search for his perfect submissive. Too bad the woman he wants to claim is too young, too shy, and too damn vanilla.

Systems analyst Cassie Hardwick should have a very busy social life. After all, she works on a naval base surrounded by gorgeous men in uniform. But she's not interested in any of the potential perks of her job because she only has eyes for one man: a powerful, gritty, and unbelievably sexy officer. Unfortunately, Flynn sees her as nothing more than a sweet kid.

When her best friend suggests a masquerade party at an exclusive out of town club, Cassie doesn't expect to run into any of her co-workers, let alone the one she's gone there to forget. When the masks come off at midnight, Flynn is more than surprised to discover what he's been searching for-- is definitely not too young or too vanilla--and has been right in front of him all along.

This is book two in the Decadence L.A. series but can be enjoyed as a standalone.

Publisher's NoteThis steamy, adult only romance contains elements of power exchange and sensual scenes. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.
