Book Release of Only for the Moment by Ella Sheridan, Book 3 in the If Only Series







He can tie up all her objections, but what about her heart?
Kennedy O’Connell’s life is perfect—a great job, plenty of friends, a brother who loves her. The chaos that ruled her childhood is gone, and she couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, her mischievous streak tends to get her in trouble, and when she walks into her favorite spa to find a sexy Australian rock star taking her place, she can’t resist a little fun.
Isaac Anschau has spent five years chasing his dream. His rock royalty status can’t be denied, but his demons are catching up with him—he’s burned out, his creativity decimated. Until a redheaded vixen decides she wants to play, and he discovers a way to leave his nightmares behind. There’s just one problem: Kennedy is dead-set against submitting, despite the way she melts when his Dom side comes out.
They’ve got nothing to lose by walking away, and everything to gain if they give in to the raging hunger between them. Baring their bodies would take only a moment. Baring their souls could take a lifetime.

Only for the Weekend, Book 1

Writing has been my passion since childhood, but like many writers, life got in the way. After earning a BA in English Literature, I married and started a family. But the worlds and characters that swirled through my mind just wouldn’t go away, and at a particularly difficult time in my life, I picked up pen and paper (or laptop) and tried to release some of that difficulty onto the page. I’ve been writing ever since. Now I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, run an accountability blog to help writers reach their goals, and am pursuing publication with the same passion I feel for writing. Nothing pleases me more than sharing the stories of my heart with you, the reader, and I hope, in some small way, these stories will touch your heart too.

Mother's day special by Lynelle Clark 8-13 May 2018


FOR A FEW DAYS ONLY ALL 3
 MY BOOKS WILL BE FREE ON SMASHWORDS. 
PLEASE SHARE FAR AND WIDE. 


Two roads. One choice.

Anabella Anthony found she was alone in the world at eighteen. Early on, she made a choice; to live an ordinary life away from the lifestyle her parents preferred. However, they had plans for her; they wanted her to become a part of their choices.

All she wanted was a regular household, with normal day to day issues like her peers, parents she could respect, and who above anything else would accept her for the person she is. Torn between dreams that filled her mind with alluring effects and uncomfortable events which tried to sway her, she had to come to a resolution―find peace and stay true to her convictions.

Through it all, she excelled in her sport; a dedicated student who falls in love with a much older man. Will she give in to her body's desires, or will she remain steadfast in her own choices? Can she find the courage to stand amidst the turmoil wanting to drag her down? And most importantly, will she ever forgive those who meant to harm her?

Aldrich Hagin―a lawyer―is ready to settle down. After a tragic loss, he experienced right after university he is now, more than ever, ready to move on and start a family. And then he meets a young, energetic, lively woman who turns his life and heart around. Will he be willing to sacrifice his own desires and wait? Can he help her and be the anchor she so desperately needs? Confronted with his own decisions, the choice is his as to whether he’ll stay or leave. What will he decide?

A love story filled with decisions both have to make; to stand against all odds and remain true to oneself.
 



Tanya’s life was turned upside down when her son, Steve was attacked by renegades and she had to dig deep facing her worst fear to save them both. 
It is the year 2048, 30 years after a devastating quake had changed Gauteng’s geographic features. The effects of the acid water, that covered most of the area, was visible to everyone but the government. The silent death crawling closer leaving devastation in its path. Nothing is excluded from the terror. 
Tanya and Steve’s path of survival meet up with the rebels in their search for clean water and she had to face much more than just acid water to stay alive. 
A thrilling story of courage and survival. 



Growing up sheltered, Rosa Lee Almaida lived a carefree life after both she and her mother experienced a horrific ordeal on the seas, and in the middle of Africa, when she was only four years. Meeting her adoptive father was the only joyful and good experience as a result thereof; the man honoured by all sailors on land and sea for his bravery and unconditional love. He was her hero and a model for her future husband-to-be. Now, twenty years later, she is forced to return to the seas that claimed the lives of many, including her birth father.

Abducted from her parents’ castle in Portugal, Rosa Lee became the Falcon’s ransom―a brutal pirate king on the island of Madagascar―in exchange for her younger brother Pedro’s life. It was here she met the Falcon’s son, Roberto de Ville, a man equally fierce, albeit with a hidden agenda. Reliving her past during the voyage, she found herself admiring the pirate for his leadership and skills, but would she be able to look past his exterior to see the man for who he really was? 

Through the inscriptions her parents left in their diaries, she made a choice to save her life. But in an unexpected turn of events, she had to trust him unconditionally, believing that her life would be spared when she gave herself over to the love and intimacy for the man she craved.

Taking Rosa Lee from Portugal, Roberto takes her to the Falcon on the Isle of St. Mary. From stories recounted by her brother, he came to one conclusion; she would be his. Throughout their time together, he came to admire Rosa Lee for her bravery during a daring escape, which reinforced his belief that she was the woman he’d waited for all his life. Roberto was more than willing to set his life as a pirate aside, but first, a plan had to be set in motion―one that would change his life forever. However, he could trust only one man, Pierre, his second in command, to assist him in seeing his plan to the end.

Ultimately, the end result shocked Rosa Lee, and an important lesson was learned: Never judge a book by its cover.

Author’s note: A Pirate’s Wife contains love scenes and foul language, due to its portrayal of both real events and people. Parental guidance of 16 is advised.

There are three things in life that matter to Westin Smith.
Money.
Sex.
And his company.

At least that was the case before Sasha Monroe charged into his life with her long legs and smart-as-hell mouth. Since the moment he laid eyes on her, she’s consumed him, making the three things he cares about . . . wash away.

From the moment Sasha meets Westin on a flight to The Infidelity Corporation, she can tell he is every woman’s greatest desire and worst nightmare wrapped up in a finely tailored six-piece suit. Yes, she might find herself daydreaming about him, but those fantasies are all wrong and will never come true. She’s on this trip for business, and that’s it.
Besides, she’ll never see him again.
Or so that’s what she thought.

A twist of events puts the two closer than ever.
Forced to align with Westin, does she have the power to say no to him?

Cover reveal: More than Crave you by Shayla Black





Release Date: April 19, 2018
Designer: Rachel Connolly
Photographer: Sara Eirew


   

I'm Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I'm not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate. After an unexpectedly hot night together, I'm ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she's far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was far too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined that she could consume me until I more than crave her. But she's harbouring a secret that could tear us apart—just as I'm finally putting myself together.

About the Book
The Grim Reaper has visited Echo Charles so often he might as well have his mail forwarded to her address. Echo never quite recovered from the loss of her parents to a tragic accident on her twenty-first birthday. Now fourteen years later, she mourns their death of her career, her social life, and if the reaper has his way, the death of her best friend’s lover. The only ray of light in all this darkness is Dr. Brandon Hall, who has had run-ins with the reaper himself—especially when his ex-wife put a choke hold on his bank account along with his belief in love. Dr. Daniel Ellington’s touch provided the electricity that pumped Telia Arthur’s heart, and a life without his smile was unthinkable. However, an unfortunate accident spared the lives of their children and left his hanging in the balance. Now Telia must deal with a challenge only a few people know about, in addition to Dan’s mother who has descended on Telia intent on securing control of Daniel’s wealth as well as his heirs, all while her son is fighting for his life. Telia and Echo began a friendship in elementary school that has blossomed into sisterhood. But their emotions are being dragged over concrete. Will love conquer all or become another victim of the reaper? Genre: Suspense Amazon

A baby for the Viking Wolf by Gwen Knight - Now available.




 

 


With great passion comes great responsibility...
Lucy Tullet's entire world has imploded, thanks to the two soft pink lines staring back at her. As a professional party-girl, she never considered settling down and having kids. Until she meets the blood wolf—a renowned Viking vampire hunter with a mysterious past—and spends the night in his arms. Now, thanks to him, everything has changed. Not only are there vampires running amok in town, hunting Lucy and her unborn child, but the blood wolf has staked his claim, determined to both protect her and take her as his mate.



(Available on Kindle Unlimited)




"Lucy," he repeated as he studied my face. "A lovely name for a lovely woman."I cleared my throat and stepped back, putting space between us. "Are you here as a bachelor then?"Bemusement tugged on his mouth. "I'm flattered. But no." "So, if you aren't here as a bachelor, and you're not part of the European pack…" I let my sentence dangle with the hope that he'd answer my unspoken question. What other reason could there be for his presence? Unless…understanding dawned. "Are you here to bid on one of the bachelors?" Surprise widened his dark eyes, and he choked back a laugh. "Uh, no. While I'm sure they're fine men, they're not the one I'm interested in." Heat spread through my cheeks. "Um. We'll just…be elsewhere," Bailey said. "Like, over there. Yeah, over there works." "What?" Evelyn asked. "Come on, dummy." Bailey grabbed Evelyn's arm and wrenched her toward the bar. The blush spread down the back of my neck. Within five minutes, the entire pack would hear about this. Those two women were the absolute worse sort. Gossip was like air to them. "So." I shot him another look, my tongue suddenly heavy in my mouth. This was ridiculous. I wasn't the sort who gummed up in front of a man. I was the sort who took initiative, who dragged them out onto the dance floor for a good time, who used them, then ditched them the next morning. Yet, here I stood, nervously fiddling with my glass, my mouth drier than the desert. All because Mr. Europe was hotter than hell itself. I cleared my throat and tried again. "What are you here for then?" His brows furrowed. "I came to see someone. But they didn't show." A woman someone? I wanted to ask. Except, the words died in my throat. "And you're really not part of the European pack?" "No." He chuckled, the expression lighting up his face. I loved the sound of it, deep but gentle, as though he laughed a lot. "In fact, I only arrived in America this afternoon." My lips parted. "Wow. You even managed to score a sweet tux, too. Impressive." He bowed his head. "I aim to please." "Did you come to America to meet this friend of yours?" "I did. Guess that won't be happening tonight, though." "And this friend…" Just ask! "A female friend?" His smile broadened, flashing a pair of dimples. "No. Just an old friend. But he's not here, and you are. So, I call that a win." I ducked my head, the bunnies in my stomach launching into full-blown butterflies. Damn it, stop playing coy! Reagan often called me a man-eater. Time to put up or shut up. "Well then." I handed my empty glass to the next server who strode by and grabbed two fresh drinks, handing him one. "If you're not from the European pack, then I offer you my sincerest apology for the way I spoke to you earlier." "That so?" His mouth ticked upward. "I'm honored. I get the impression you don't apologize often." "I'm not often wrong," I said with a playful wink. "Ah, beauty and brains, then?" Before I could respond, he plowed onward. "I take it you're here to bid on one of these fine gentlemen tonight?" "Yup." Not that I wanted to anymore. The only devilishly handsome werewolf I wanted to play with was the one standing in front of me. "You sure you're not supposed to be up there?" "Do you want me to be?" Most definitely. I'd bid every last cent on him. Problem was, from the many hungry glances sliding his way, I wasn't the only one interested. And I wasn't known for sharing. After a moment's consideration, I shook my head. "No, you don't belong up there." He clutched at his chest. "You wound me, madam!" "It's for your protection, and everyone else's too. I wouldn't want to have to kill everyone who bid on you just to get what I want." He stepped closer, his scent overwhelming my senses. "I'm intrigued. What is it you want?" "You tell me," I murmured, my voice taking on a husky note. His fingers brushed against mine, teasing, taunting…playing the game. I gave a slow blink and lifted my gaze to his, my mouth curling into a sensuous smile. "I know what I want," he said. "Do tell." Without warning, he cupped the back of my head and brushed his lips against mine. Slowly at first, tasting what I had to offer. Teasing me with the promise of something more. I'd expected him to ravish my mouth, but instead, he took the time to seduce me. Heat spread through my body, and my damn knees buckled. His touch feathered against my bare back, eliciting a shiver unlike anything I'd ever experienced. My whole body attuned to his, and he'd done little more than offer a chaste brush of our lips. We parted, my chest heaving beneath my dress. His gaze dipped to my plunging neckline, his eyes sparkling at the sight of my flushed skin. "I have a room upstairs," he rasped. Hallelujah. Because we sure as hell wouldn't make it back to my place. "Only if you're interested." I laughed. "You damn well know I'm interested." "Now?" Screw the auction. Gabriel had sent me to smooth over the press, and to donate money to a good cause. Neither of which I'd done. But I'd already won the night as far as I was concerned, without spending a single cent. I could easily donate the money without bidding. I licked my lips, excitement dancing in my stomach. "Now," I murmured. "Right fucking now." He flashed me a grin. "A woman after my own heart."
