EXCERPT:

“This is a surprise,” he said, nuzzling his nose over her neck.

“I’ll say. A bid for Congress, who knew?” Phoenix said.

“We only started putting the team together. Do you think it’s a bad idea?”

“No, I think you’d be brilliant at it. Just surprised. You haven’t mentioned it since that night.” She let the part about him being a complete asshole be implied. To his credit, he didn’t back down.

“I always meant to get into politics eventually.”

Robin raised his head to meet her eyes, she saw heat and desire, and just the barest hint of vulnerability. She wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him in for a light kiss on the lips. “It makes sense.” And it did, only Phoenix dreaded what it would mean when he was living on the East Coast and she was back to living in L.A. most of the time.

But maybe she was thinking too far ahead. The election wouldn’t be for another year. It was anybody’s guess what would happen between then and now. And Phoenix hadn’t even told him about the baby yet. She’d had half a mind to do it now, to ply him with roast beef and spicy pickles and tell him he was going to be a father and that despite all the bullshit they were wading through now, she was excited—ecstatic even. Their nursery theme was going to be gender neutral. Whales, she’d already decided, but she would let him suggest names if he wanted.

Instead, Robin pressed Phoenix into the door with his body as his lips brushed over her jaw. “Did you have urgent business or . . .?” he asked, and she could hear the plea in his voice that told her he just needed a break. Which was fine. They had plenty of time to talk about the baby.

“I missed you, but I can probably come up with something if you’d like to work.”

“I’d rather not,” Robin’s voice was gruff, hard.

“Good, because I’ve always wanted to go down on you in your office.” Then she pulled him in for a hard kiss.

Robin sighed against her lips, brushing his tongue out to meet hers as his hands landed on her hips and squeezed. Phoenix managed to shove him out of his jacket. Then, with a rub of her cheek over his bearded chin, she grasped his tie and pulled him around his desk and pushed him back into his leather desk chair.

He grinned as she leaned over him. “Are you feeling bossy today?”

“I’m feeling bossy every day, Birch.” She kissed him once more, then concentrated her attention on his fly. His suit was a light gray today, made out of a breathable fabric that was soft and cool beneath Phoenix’s fingertips as she traced the ridge behind his zipper.

The Cowboy's Secret Baby~ Release Blitz

Book 3, Colorado Dreamin’ Series

Western Contemporary Romance

Date Published: August 15, 2020

Publisher: Sand Dune Books


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png  

 

The long-requested sequel to Maddie James' first published novel, Roses & Rawhide is now available!

 

Readers wanted to know...

What happened to Jillie and Mack's relationship at the end of Roses & Rawhide?

Why did Jillie go back to Kentucky?

Will they get back together? What's their story?

 

While Kim Martin and Thad Winchester find their happily-ever-after in Roses & Rawhide, their best friends, Jillie Abernathy and Mack Montgomery, end their sleeping bag sharing relationship during the rugged, two-week pack trip into the Colorado San Juan mountains.

But when Kim and Thad host their wedding at Thad's Colorado ranch a few months later, Mack and Jillie must come face-to-face with reality--and with each other. She's the maid of honor. He's the best man. Both are harboring secrets that could break a potential future relationship if they both keep avoiding telling the truth.

Can they reveal those secrets to each other? And if so, can they get past the withheld truths to plan a future together?

 

Excerpt

Jillie glanced up from the pot of chili and froze. The back door softly closed, and Mack pushed into the mudroom. She watched as he parked his hat on the bench beside the back door and hung his coat next to hers in the closet, then strolled into the kitchen.

This feels a little too cozy. “What the hell?” she said. “I thought you’d gone.”

He tossed her a sarcastic grin as he approached the kitchen island. “Nope. I’m here. At least for the night. Guess we both need to get used to it.”

“Why?”

“Weather and other stuff.”

“Is it that bad?”

He ignored her. “Did you get a nap?”

“Yes.”

“Good. By the way, I’m still on babysitting duty,” he added.

“Oh my God, Mack, I can manage.” Jillie bristled and narrowed her gaze. “I don’t need a sitter.”

“I’m still here anyway.”

“Well that’s ridiculous.” She turned back to the chili. But the smirky smile he gave her right before she did—one that half crossed over into dangerous sexy waters—unnerved her a bit. Flustered, Jillie dropped the ladle into the chili. The hot soup splashed onto the back of her hand and she jerked away. “Crap. Ouch!”

She snagged Mack’s gaze as he stepped forward. His intense glare unnerved her so much that she didn’t see him reaching for her hand.

 “You lost the spoon,” Mack said. His fingers were still cold from working outside. He lightly touched a knuckle. “You okay? Those knuckles look red already.”

And they stung. She pulled back sharply, but not completely out of his grasp. “Um. Yeah. I’m fine.”

“No, you’re not.” He tugged her closer, his blue eyes dancing. She locked into his gaze and he held her there for a few seconds, while her heart did a little flip-flop. Leaning in, he lifted her hand to his lips, and licked off the chili spatter off.

One. Knuckle. At. A. Time.

Mesmerized by the action, all Jillie could do was stand there and let him. His tongue dragging over her skin sent a revolving skitter of desire through her body and jump-started the months-buried yearning for him in her heart—and elsewhere. Every delicate nerve ending connected to her hands tingled with anticipation. Where else might he lick?

Her lips?

Neck?

Um…?

Stunned at the heat of his touch, Jillie attempted to stifle the shiver racing up her spine and keep her hand from shaking. She wasn’t successful. After what seemed a suspended moment in time, he stopped, and his gaze drifted up to meet hers.

Those blue eyes twinkled back. She trembled a little inside while her tongue made a quick swipe over her suddenly parched lower lip. Mack’s gaze immediately dropped to her mouth, and she willed down the flipping butterflies in her stomach.

She stepped back and jerked her hand away.

She is also an author with a host of books on the New York Times bestsellers list. She is a mother of three and has a wonderful husband named Harold. Life is great for them on the outside looking in, but Kim had more than a few secrets.
Shawn is a handsome and successful businessman and best-selling author. Being co-owner of one of the top urban publishing companies in the country gave him a six-figure salary.

Shawn and Kim not only shared a company together, but they also shared a son, a house, and a life. When their son is kidnapped, Shawn and Kim worked together to find him. Little did they know, they were much closer to the kidnappers than they thought. With the fear of never seeing their son again, Shawn and Kim wake up sleeping beasts that no one was ready for.

She began writing short stories in notebooks, that she would pass on to her classmates for reviews.

Even though Kyiris Ashley’s first novel is in the urban fiction genre; she has written other works in different genres under pennames. She prefers not to place herself in a box, and stunt her creative growth by limiting herself to one genre. Kyiris Ashley is currently working on turning her book into a scripted series and movie. While also preparing for the release of the second installment of the Blended Families trilogy entitled; Blended Families 2: Retribution. 


💙💙💙💙💙

What can I say about this book?
First off let me sip my hot tea! I love this read because it kept my attention from chapter one. I love how the author had each of the main characters in their own chapter so we as readers can get their viewpoints. I know it got to be hard for Shawn to play the best husband and father while hiding each woman from each other. He did and always had a good excuse as to why he got to go "work" to be with Kim. lol. This was a great story with all the secrets and the twist and turn. If there is a part two I would love to read it.

Keeping Secrets ~ Book Review



About The Book:
Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?
That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding; he who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet, he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.
Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed, and is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of.
She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them. However, would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is?

💙💙💙

This book just had too many unanswered questions. The fact that the main character had a remarkable recovery from a six-week coma. Flex made a full recovery, except for a bit of temporary amnesia.  They both agree that the marriage is a business exchange and Ebony was perfectly fine with it; because she just got dump by the man she was supposed to marry. This was all supposed to pretend in front of the media, I get that part they got married for convenience purpose. The part I don’t get or made sense to me if you have amnesia and don’t remember your wife or even getting married then why go along and believing she is your wife?  

I really couldn’t understand why add the amnesia if now Ebony want to be close to Flex, and didn’t tell him the truth about the marriage even if she had also agreed to do this just to help him out. This book was painful to read., Ebony is tortured by the secrets she hides from Felix, which he will find out from his close staff or if his amnesia kicks in. Flex hates secrets and lies, but the author would have done better if Flex was trying to find out who and why did they got married instead of having a lot of sex.
It pains me to see that Ebony didn't talk to Felix about their little setup, unless she really did want to be with him in the first place. What was her plan? It made no sense for her to try to hide anything.

I wanted to love this book if the author would have played more into the amnesia.

I will probably try another Kiru Taye in the future, but this book didn’t do it for me.

Tantalize Me~ Book Tour Giveaway


Tantalize Me 
Wanna Be Bad Book 3 
by Tina Donahue 
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Menage – MFM 


When it comes to lust and love, sometimes you have to break the rules… 

Not believing in forever after with any guy, Olivia indulges her carnal needs at the hedonistic resort where she works while pursuing her dream to design jewelry. 

Brothers Ethan and Gabe have had women chasing them forever, their good looks and their family’s billions a major draw. Just what they don’t need or want, predatory females. Stuck at the resort on a project neither care to do, they meet Olivia who’s everything a woman should be: bright, fun, and totally unimpressed by their wealth. Hooking up with her during the ‘anything goes’ week—when nudity rules and every sexual activity is celebrated—proves easy. Resisting anything deeper is impossible for them and her despite how hard they try. 

Because sometimes you just gotta break the rules. 

Especially during an erotic journey where insatiable desire and an unbreakable bond leads to a future none could have imagined. 

At Encounters, a lush and hedonistic Caribbean resort, it's nothing except fun and pleasure during the 'anything goes' weeks, where nudity rules, threesomes and more rock, and kink in every flavor sates the most carnal appetite. 





Thrill Me 
Wanna Be Bad Book 2 
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Menage – MFM


Longing to be bad…
For too many months, Shelby’s craved bad boys Ben and Dominic, cousins and celebrated chefs at the opulent Caribbean resort where she works. Their heated gazes prove they hunger for her as much as she does for them, but they’ve yet to make a move on her.

That won’t do. Yearning for their potent masculinity, killer smiles, and effortless charm, she sets into motion a decadent plan to be with them … at least for a little while. Her ideas include nude photos, a locale where anything goes 24/7, plus BDSM and another kink.

Fun-loving Dominic’s fully onboard. He’s had his eye on Shelby from the start. Ben has too, but he’s reluctant to mix business with pleasure. Since a previous work relationship screwed him big time, he doesn’t want to repeat the experience and won’t … as long as he keeps this strictly about sex, no strings or expectations.

Yeah, right. In an erotic journey that will surprise this threesome, all bets are off, resistance impossible, surrender assured.




Indulge Me 
Wanna Be Bad Book 1 
Genre: Erotic Contemporary – MF

Nothing forbidden…nothing held back. 
Lissa prefers reading to cutting loose, but is willing to do whatever it takes to get the juiciest assignments for her job at a major travel magazine. Her chance finally arrives. She’s set to experience a posh Caribbean resort, a dream article and review except for one huge problem. It’s the anything goes theme week where nudity is expected and lusty hook-ups make threesomes look downright tame. Holy Hell. What has she gotten herself into?

Precisely what resort owner Jon Thorne thinks. Tall, dark, and luscious, he fears the randy male guests will eat her alive, resulting in a lousy review. His only option is to serve as her guide for every decadent delight from nude body painting to Dom’s Den where submission and punishment rule. Unless she wants to call the whole thing off…

And lose her chance with him, plus give up this gig? Dream on. Tempted beyond anything she’s known, she matches his passion and then some, surprising him during a sexy adventure like no other.

The Baron Regrets~Book Tour


The Baron Regrets 
by D.S. Dehel 
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Cozy Mystery 


Regret nothing. 

Tessa Winthrop, an art restoration specialist, is hoping for the job of a lifetime—one which would cement her reputation in a field dominated by her male colleagues. 

Working for Baron Lucien Stanhope—or Leo as he prefers—challenges Tess’s talent, intellect, and emotions. Leo is charming, handsome, and way out of her league. It doesn’t matter, though, because she only is there for her art and the mystery surrounding master painter Giovanni Remini. 

When a night of passion leads to consequences that could mean the end of her career, Tess fears that the baron regrets having ever met her. 

But fate has more in store for them, and sometimes regrets are the beginning of better things. 






D. S. Dehel is a lover of literature, good food, and the Oxford comma. When she is not immersed in a book, she is mom to her kids and spoiling her rather coddled feline, Mr. Darcy or her equally pampered puppy, Jameson. Having finally retired, she spends her days dreaming up new plotlines. She adores literary allusions, writing sex scenes, and British men. Actually, make that hot men in general. Her devoted husband is still convinced she writes children’s books. Please don’t enlighten him.
