Excerpt: Tempest by Beverly Jenkins

Hiya, and welcome back! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of Tempest by Beverly Jenkins, the third book in her Old West series! First, here’s a bit more about the book. About the book Excerpt “Being shot tends to make a man short-tempered. . .” She held his gaze unflinchingly. Despite his doubts concerning her suitability, Colt found himself drawn to the determination she radiated. “I can cook, set a proper table, and have impeccable manners. I speak English and Spanish. I hunt, fish, swim, and ride. I’d hoped to find a husband who’d view these qualities as assets, but if you’re seeking what society considers a proper wife who’ll defer to you in all things, and spend time sitting in a rocker with an embroidery hoop in her hand, you should say so and I’ll return to Arizona.” Colt blinked. He didn’t know any woman with the pluck to toss down […]

Nic had to be about fifteen feet long, and that wasn’t including his long, powerful tail, which was tucked around him. He rose on his back legs and released his wings. The spread had to be at least double the size of his body. Nic was a dragon. She shook her head. Impossible. Nic. Was. A. Dragon. She’d had sex with a dragon. She was in love with a bloody dragon. How was this even possible? Then she remembered what Nic had told her about Dent and how the group he belonged to wanted to capture him and drink his blood. She […]

About the book Excerpt It wasn’t until the front door closed behind Ivan that the reality of her situation sank in. Dmitri was furious. He might have faked it for his friend, but he stood next to her, a pillar of stone with anger coming off him in waves. His grip on her elbow didn’t hurt, but if she’d tried to leave, he would have restrained her. She should be afraid. She should be terrified. Keira’s heartbeat picked up, adrenaline kicking in. She swung to face him with a fierce smile on her face. “You didn’t compliment me on my dress.” It was a work of fucking art. She […]

Excerpt: One and Done by Melynda Price

Excerpt: One and Done by Melynda Price

Happy release day to One and Done by Melynda Price! We have an excerpt and a giveaway to get you excited about this new holiday getaway romance! About the book Excerpt “Balen, are you homeless?” His brow arched. Autumn wasn’t sure why he looked so surprised she asked. It wasn’t a very far leap. The writing was on the wall—his friend making that crack about him being a jobless beach bum, him volunteering to spend the week with her…and now here he was, needing a place to say. She wasn’t an idiot. One plus one usually equaled two. Balen studied her until the tension in the room grew stifling. “Is my socioeconomic status an issue for you? You’ve got the spare room and I happen to be in need of one for the next week. I thought… Look, if staying with you is going to be a problem, I can leave.” […]

Happy Monday! To get the week started, here’s an excerpt from One Night by Allie Everhart. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt AMBER “So…can I come in?” Dylan laughs a little. “Oh, um, I um…” My brain still isn’t working. I can’t even form sentences. What is he doing here? The thought leaves my mouth. “What are you doing here?” I step aside to let him in. “I told you, I had to give you something.” He still has that smile as he comes into my apartment and closes the door. I hold up the envelope. “You already gave it to me.” “I could’ve just left that at your door. That’s not what I came here to give you.” “I don’t understand.” He steps up to me and his hand cups my cheek, his eyes moving over my face. “You’re even more beautiful than I remembered.” […]

Excerpt: Abroad Book Two by Liz Jacobs

Happy Friday! We’ve got another excerpt for you today, this time from Abroad Book Two by Liz Jacobs! As usual, we’ll start with some information about the book, and you’ll find a giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt A shift next to Nick, then a sigh. He froze. Had he woken Dex up after all? He waited as Dex moved behind him, and then the futon shifted. Dex was up. Nick turned over, only to see him escape quietly out of the study. Nick took advantage of it and shifted into a position he could maybe fall asleep in, provided he could shut his fucking brain up. God, sleeping next to another person was stressful as hell. He and Lena did it rarely enough that he had never managed to get used to it. Dex didn’t seem to have this problem. Again, Nick’s lack of experience made him squirm. Dex […]

Excerpt: A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North

Heya! Today, we’re giving you a little taste of A Sheikh for Christmas by Leslie North! First, here’s a bit more about the book, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end! About the book Excerpt Melody watched him walk away beneath her damp lashes. She’d never really paid much attention to Daveed before. He’d been one of Heath’s friends and always hanging around the periphery of their group, but had sort of kept to himself. Now, though, he’d come to her aid in her hour of need—or more like day of desperation—and a girl couldn’t ignore such chivalry. As the silence between them grew more awkward by the second, she got up and wandered over to the table, which was covered by papers and post-it notes. Daveed didn’t look up at her at all, so she finally pulled out a chair and sat, forcing a tremulous smile. “What are […]

Excerpt: Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis

The holidays are slowly starting to creep up on us. I know that I, for one, like to read a few holiday-themed books, especially right around Christmas. If you’re anything like me, you might be on the prowl for some new reads, and I’ve got one for you. Today, you can try a taster from Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis! First, here’s a bit more about the book. About the book Excerpt At the empathetic tone in Sean’s voice, Lotti’s heart and stomach and head all clenched in unison. “What do you mean you can’t give me what I want?” she asked. “All you have to do is walk away.” “Tried that already,” he said. “And it was the biggest mistake of my life.” He brought her hand up to his mouth and met her gaze over their entwined hands. He was looking at her like . . . well, she wasn’t sure what was […]

Guest Post & Excerpt: Mara Gan, author of Joined, on her writing routine

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Mara Gan, author of Joined! Today, Mara will be talking about her writing routine. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Mara Gan’s writing routine I have a full-time job apart from writing, so I tend to daydream a lot of my stories for a while before I get around to writing them down. But when I write, either for my job or for my life as an author, I make myself a cup of green tea, read a little bit of news on my laptop, and turn on Netflix. I often stray toward Friends or Star Trek: The Next Generation, because I know all the episodes so well that it doesn’t distract me into paying rapt attention, but I like having a little bit of conversation noise in the background. For whatever […]
