Getaway smash

Synopsis

This unlikely getaway driver never expected to help the mayor escape…

After a six-year absence, Addison Potts is back in Charleston to stir things up. And what better place to make her villainous return than her estranged cousin’s wedding? Only, the nuptials hit a snag when the bride doesn’t show, leaving Addison to play getaway driver for the jilted groom. A groom whose heartbreaking smile and deep, southern drawl she should not be noticing… 

Elijah Montgomery Du Pont is the future mayor of Charleston. From his military career to city hall, every detail of his life has been meticulously planned. Until now. His only respite from life’s sudden upheaval is Addison, his new, improbable best friend. She makes him happy. Grounds him. And public disapproval be damned, he’s not willing to give her up. But with an election on the line and public pressure rising, Addison—and the cruel hand of fate—might not give him a choice.

About the Author

Tessa Bailey - headshot

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Synopsis
 

Peter Parker Penn.

Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.

In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.

Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.

To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.

For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do-mostly. 

And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.

Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.

Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.

One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.

Yet she won’t listen.

She’s convinced that she can save him.

Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.

Synopsis

 

Mary Persephone Hail

Mary—well-wished-for child.

Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child.  Persephone, though?  Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail?  Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.

Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask?  Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival.  Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person.  He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds.  Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life.  But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind.  Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

4 ‘Saving Hail’ Stars

Hail Mary, indeed!!!!

The most broken of Hail’s, Dante, finally gets his salvation, in the shape of an adorable little girl, and a woman, Cobie, that felt just as broken as himself. A beautiful story of friendship, support and understanding in the hardest times, and above all, HOPE. That’s the biggest lesson, as long as Hope can arise, a light can bloom even in the darkest and lowest of our lives. 

She’d been my saving grace. My hail Mary.

Dante has been living in hell, constant pain and despair since his wife and little girls were robbed of their lives. His bleak life only starts having a bit more of meaning when little Mary – his daughter, fruit of one drunken night when he was drown in grief – is brought to his life. Mary becomes his sole reason to live.

There, on the couch, with Mary sleeping next to my thigh, her tiny feet touching my hip and Cobie in my arms, her tears slowing… I found peace for the first time in years.

That is, until he fulfills his promise to Mary’s mother, on her deathbed, of him protecting and taking care of not only that adorable little girl, but also her friend, Cobie. Cobie, a cancer survivor, finds out that the disease has caught her again. She has no one to hold on to, and as broken as she feels herself, she is tired of fighting. But one talk with Dante is enough for him to plant the seed, that maybe giving up isn’t the correct choice.

And I’d survived a lot of stuff on my own. I could do this, too.

Was there anything sexier than seeing a man, holding a sick baby who had an ear infection, shirtless? 
No. I didn’t think there was, either. 
I may be under the weather, but my body wasn’t dead. 
And the things I was feeling for the man that was clearly only ever going to be my friend was quite scary.

They become friends, and I adored their slow development of feelings, meanwhile being each others support, and help. How Dante so selflessly helped her throughout her recovering, with no agenda, and was just there for her. A true friend, when she needed it the most.

Only, I wasn’t left alone at my own house. I was left alone at Dante’s house. 
Dante’s house that was covered with another woman’s life. 
There were signs of his family everywhere.

I was becoming too dependent on him. That, and I was afraid that I was falling in love with him. 
In love with a man that I knew was about as emotionally distant as a vacuum cleaner.

The problem with this proximity, was that they couldn’t help but develop deeper feelings for one another beyond friendship. And that wasn’t an easy situation, on either side. Cobie was already half in love with the man and his little girl, but she was also fully aware of the impenetrable walls  Dante had built around his heart, after his family’s death. She knew, and could see how much he was hung up on Lilly’s memory…

What I didn’t want to do was admit that I’d gone and fallen in love with the man. Why? Because the man wasn’t ever going to fall in love with me back. His heart was already promised to another, and that would just be plain dumb for me to go and do.

And this is where I normally have a bit of an issue when it comes to this trope. Dead spouses are a very testy subject when we could can clearly see how much the H loved his wife and is attached to her memory. And my heart was hurting for Cobie, when she was fighting her feelings, because of his situation. But there was no hiding how much she loved them.

I hadn’t needed anything else—or so I thought. 
But I did need something else. 
I needed someone to take care of. Someone to love me. Someone to love my Mary. 
And Cobie did… she loved us.

That is where Lani Lynn Vale excelled giving us his perspective, where we could see his internal conflict, and the struggle he was having with his feelings for Cobie, and guilt in regards of his deceased wife. Those of us you have read the whole series – and have been anxiously awaiting his story – , knew fully well the scale of his pain, and how hard it would be for him to open himself to love again. But with Mary already having cracked part of those barriers, he just needed a little friendly push (aka advised) from the amazing secondary character, specially Ruthie, Lilly’s bff.

You have Mary, and she pulled you out of the darkness, but you have to do the rest. You have to want to live, and you can’t do that while you still cling to your dead wife. She doesn’t want you to live like this. Nobody wants you to live like this.”

Even so, it was still hard for him to come to terms with what Cobie was making him, and that was one particular scene I just wanted to kick his ass so bad – even though I understood and knew why he was reacting the way he did – with what he said to Cobie, and oh man, he made me cry even me, my heart only immediately appeased with his self loathing and regret. Instant realization and I adored that LLV, didn’t make us wait for it, and for light to shine on his feelings.

There were feelings running through me that I hadn’t even felt with my wife—which had been the real kicker in the guilt department. I wasn’t supposed to love anyone else more than I loved my wife—but I did. I loved Cobie. I loved her with my whole heart and soul… and distance wouldn’t change that.

The only anticlimactic fact was that the major grovelling he was intending to do, and I was hoping for, got cut back due to other events. Cobie deserved all that. Bit I’m so glad we got to see all the depth of his feelings for her and his regret, plus his intentions, that showed me how much he truly loved her with all his heart.

I didn’t recognize that what we have is that rare, once-in-a-lifetime, forever kind of love until you left.

But you… I can’t live without you. I don’t want to live without you.”

“I never once doubted your love for me, Dante,”

“If you hadn’t left, I wouldn’t have realized what I was missing. Without you, I wouldn’t have realized just how sad and bleak my life had become.”

OMG, it really was a beautiful story. Lani Lynn Vale’s gave us an extraordinary version of a friends to lovers, emotional and so hopeful, that I have no doubt will touch your heart, shed some tears and leave with a happy smile on your faces with Dante, Conie and their little family. A true second chance at life! <3 <3 <3 <3

Then I kissed her. I kissed her long and sweet and thorough. She tasted like second chances, salvation and starting over. I never wanted to let her go. Not ever again.

We were our second chance at life and happiness, and we weren’t wasting it.

What I don’t want to be doing is living in the past. The past is just that—the past. I’ll always be thankful for it, but it’s time for me to take a step into the future.”

Synopsis

From New York Times Bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes the second standalone book in the Everyday Heroes series. Just how hot will firefighter Grady Malone turn up the heat?

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.

By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someone else.

By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.

When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.

That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars—the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.

When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?

Excerpt

 

Preoccupied with a text on my phone from my agent, I walk into the kitchen and suck in a breath when I come face to back with Grady. He’s standing with his hand on the refrigerator door, head leaned inside, and his back fully exposed to me. It’s broad and strong and scarred immeasurably.

I stare.

I can’t help it. The marks are a dizzying array of dark and light and ridged and smooth. And they’re undeniably burns. Goosebumps chase over my skin as I imagine the pain he must have endured when he got those. I think of his habit of wearing unbuttoned shirts but never going shirtless and the hint of scars just visible above his collar that I never could have imagined led to this roadmap to hell on his back.

A part of me instinctively wants to reach out to touch them, bring some kind of comfort. It sounds ridiculous, even to me, but that doesn’t abate the urge.

“Not pretty, huh? Get a good look while you can.” His voice is gruff as his spine stiffens and body stills, emotion woven through the words.

“Thank God not all of you is pretty. I was beginning to feel majorly insecure having to live with perfection like you,” I say off the cuff, trying to make this situation less awkward. My attempt to settle the sudden tension sparking in the air around us.

“Perfection?” he asks as he turns to face me with a smile that masks the emotion swirling in his eyes.

“Yeah. You have scars. I have mermaid thighs.”

“Mermaid thighs?” He laughs. “What in the world are you talking about?”

“Thighs that touch from the top all the way to my knees.” I shrug as if it doesn’t bug me, as if I’m not highlighting one of the insults Tara threw at me. It’s a whole lot easier to make fun of myself so long as it puts him at ease.

“Do you ever give yourself a break?”

Do you?” I ask the question, sparking a silent battle of wills as we stare at each other and wonder what to say next about the other’s insecurities. Coming up empty, I shift gears. “I think there is some type of rule about how many abs are fair for a guy to have when the rest of us are just struggling to find one of them.”

His smile rings more genuine as he steps toward me, and I step back, my hips leaning against the counter now.

“Is that so?” His voice lowers as his eyes flick to my lips and then back up. “I’m sure you have some under your shirt there.”

Why does the simple action make it seem so hard to swallow?

He takes another step.

“What are you building outside?”

“A playroom.”

A nervous chuckle falls from my lips as I think of all of the versions of playrooms I’ve read about in my romance books. My cheeks stain red as I imagine Grady with a flogger in one hand standing beside a St. Andrew’s Cross.

“A playroom?”

“Yeah.” He takes a step closer so we’re breathing the same air, his voice husky enough to cause every part of my body to grow alert. “A playroom. You know . . . a pool table. Foosball. A real man cave.”

I exhale a shaky sigh, suddenly more than aware that he’s so close, shirtless, sweaty, and smelling like sun and soap mixed together. But it’s his eyes that make my thoughts falter. There’s an intensity to them I don’t expect from the perpetually cheerful Grady Malone.

“Ah, that kind of playroom . . .” But my words trail off as he steps even closer and braces his hands on the counter on either side of me. I can hear his intake of breath. The music floating in from outside. The pound of my pulse in my ears.

“Hey, Dyl?”

“Yes?” Our eyes hold, my lips fall lax.

“I need you to open up.”

What?” I question as his hand brushes against my hip and his fingers pull on the drawer handle I’m standing in front of.

“I need the bottle opener. You’re standing in front of the drawer it’s in.” His lips spread into a full-fledged grin as I scramble away from the counter and, of course, run smack dab into the hardness, all six foot plus of him.

And then I rebound off him again in a flustered state that has him laughing and me stuttering. “Sorry. I wasn’t—I didn’t . . .” His arms hold on to my biceps to steady me, which prompts me to look up and meet his eyes.

“We need to stop meeting like this,” he murmurs, the heat of his breath hitting my lips.

“We do.” Brilliant, Dylan. Freaking brilliant response. “I’ve gotta . . . I’ve gotta get back to . . . to writing.”

4.75 ‘Face Everything And Rise’ Stars

Holy Hot Fireman!!! This couple! Their past, their scars, their ghosts, their passion, their chemistry…. Their LOVE! Epic romance written brilliantly by K. Bromberg in the most perfect of ways.
Once again miss Bromberg gives us ALL the feels. Straight to the heart!

Dylan McCoy’s – yes, how awesome is that we get two amazing McCoy heroines in the same week? – has just been shattered to pieces by her long time boyfriend and rock star, Jett. So in attempt to heal her wounds and stay away from he source her pain, her brother gives her a refuse to a secluded location, in a small town, she just has to share a house with his friend, Grady Malone. Sounds easy enough, no?! LOL

“The heart’s blind. It’s the head that causes all the trouble.”

Not at all, because Grady Malone is a league of his own – and huge problems that haunt him – but that just makes his smoking hot package that much more difficult to resist. And honestly, who could? A drool worthy body, and a cheer up attitude that hides an enormous pain insane, but let’s you see his fragility? Yep, totally irresistible!

Perfection with a little bit of grit thrown in. 
Any woman who says a firefighter in his gear isn’t sexy is lying because damn . . . that’s the only word I can form.

And I’m left contemplating the contradiction that is Grady Malone.

I loved how much tact Grady had with Dylan, and which buttons he knew she needed pushing. The fact that even though immediately physically attracted, they established a somehow strong friendship, and Grady acknowledged her broken heart, but still pushed her to let go, was refreshing. I wished he hadn’t go to a particular moment there to try to help her, but that just show how blind men are sometimes, that it needs to basically be slapped in their face to see what was obvious to everyone else.

“Because love is rarely pretty. It’s messy. It’s complicated. It’s often ugly, but that’s how you know when it’s right. Pretty doesn’t always last. It’s the things you have to work at that make the reward that much sweeter.”

“It isn’t talking the good game you should be worrying about. It’s if a man can back it up with his actions.”

“It’s okay to forget what hurt you, but just remember to never forget what it taught you.”

His words of wisdom truly were spot on, if only he could take those very words and apply them his own situation. The dichotomy of his character just proves how talented Ms. Bromberg is. His inner conflict, his battle with his ghosts, and his upbeat charisma, shows us a complexity that just kept us hooked to this tormented man, and cheering for him, and Dylan. Because boy, did he want her!

It’s the perfect mix of sexy and sweet.

“What do you say, Dylan?” Please. Use me.

And weren’t just talking about physically and sexual want, but a soul calming craving, in which only Dylan brought him a resemblance of peace! His very own soul whisperer.

Dylan, the more she can see beyond the playful facade, and the God-like body, the more she is drawn to him, and their insane chemistry, just lights her fire to unmeasurable proportions. Yes, she’s afraid all he makes her feel, and she may have fought their magnetism, but a man like Grady, and a passion like theirs just can’t be ignored.

It takes a second for my mind to catch up to what my body is already reacting to—the onslaught of everything that is Grady Malone. 
Because this isn’t a let’s-play-house kiss. 
Oh no. 
This is a take-no-prisoners, no-holds-barred kiss.

Every touch is a splash of gasoline on a smolder. Every kiss is the match being lit. Every groan a lick of flame searing both my skin and my soul.

And it’s passion that if allowed has the power to heal them both. Two hurt souls that just might be each others salvation, they just need to let their minds feel what their hearts and bodies are trying to tell them. Combust really is a story about mutual healing through love. Epic love’s true power!

We all have scars. Some are visible. Some aren’t. In the end, they represent the fact that you’re stronger now than whatever tried to hurt you.

That night, the taste of your kiss seared into my goddamn mind, making sure no one else’s kiss could ever come close.

It was amazing to get even more of Grant and Emerson HEA here, and the rest of the Malone gang – including their parents – as well as all the awesome secondary characters. Like all the women in the story, I could imagine the droolfest that comes with these three men at one place. These Malones… WOW, they really are a league of their own. Full package material: smoking hot looks, loyal to the core and with capacity to love a woman, their soulmate, in a way that she becomes the center of his universe.

We’re Malones. This is who we are. We are public servants, and risk comes with the territory. We don’t have a choice in the matter. We were born to do this, but that doesn’t mean we should miss out on our lives because of it.”

Combust really blew all my expectations, and considering how much I loved the first installment, that’s saying something. These profoundly developed characters, intricate and complex plot lines that unveil themselves organically, makes the experience K. Bromberg is gifting us with her talented writing, that much more gratifying! How could I not, when she snags my attention from the very beginning to end?! Pure Contemporary Romance GOLD! Can’t wait to see what she has reserved for us with the remaining Malone and delicious single parent, Medevac pilot, Grayson!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I’m not asking to be your whole world, Dylan, I just want to be a part of it. I want to be the part that revolves around you. I want to be the one who grounds you so we’re forced to come home to each other, even when we’re mad. I want to provide the arms that hug you and the hands that hold yours through whatever adventure awaits us. I want you and whatever the two of us decide we want for our future.”

I want the good, the bad, the ugly in life . . . and I want it with you.”

We let our scars fall in love. 
We let our hearts heal each other’s.

Indecent Exposure Cover

Synopsis

Is there a problem, Officer? 

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

Header Indecent Exposure

5 ‘Soothe, fix, heal, love’ Stars

Sweet. Baby. Jesus… Not just five starts, but ALL THE STARS!!!

Indecent Exposure, this Tessa Bailey’s masterpiece, managed to shred my heart to pieces and put it back together, making it whole and glow with Jack and Katie’s story! 

Everyone that follows me, knows that manwhores – even if reformed –  are one of my least favorite tropes, so I have to confess I was a bit wary going into this one. I know, I know, I should have know that our Queen of Dirty Talkers would never let me down.

But the alcohol makes it a shit ton easier to say yes. Yes to the girl, yes to what my body wants right now, but will regret later.

Well, I’m the first to admit and cajole myself for my own mistake, because ladies and gentleman,  Jack Garret is EVERYTHING!!! 

There was do denying his physical – PERFECT COVER REPRESENTATION, BTW! – and charismatic, irresistible attributes, but he couldn’t be any different than what I expect. Tessa Bailey gave in this male character, such a complex, endearing and realistic persona, that I can honestly say Jack Garrett stole my heart, right along with Katie’s.

It seems an awful gluttony of five-star qualities on a single person. God should have spread them around His other creations a bit.

As soon as this completely unrealistic, possibly CGI creature stops trying to knock me into a coma with his physical charms, I’ll be off to the races.

Due to events of her past and her upbringing – I’ll try to do this as spoiler free as possible – , Katie McCoy has lived a secluded lifestyle, so this international police exchange to NYC is just the first step of true freedom she has in a very long time, if not ever. What she hadn’t anticipated was Jack, in all his pirate smiling glory, crossing paths with her!

Every day of my life has been scheduled and executed without fail. 
This man is not on my agenda.

If I’m not mistaken, Jack is the Big Bad Wolf and I’m Little Red Riding Hood.

The attraction is instant, and knocks them both of balance, but it’s Katie resistance to his charms, and his reaction to her as whole that intrigues Jack, and he finds himself following her and wanting even more of the ‘sexy and cute-as-a-button’ redhead. So much more.

“One kiss.” He takes a step forwards, his big chest rising and falling. “I know I’m pushing it, Snaps. But I’m dying over here.”

“See, this is no big deal to you. Because you’re the Big Bad Wolf.” 
“I’m what?” His laugh is full and aching. “
Ah, Katie. Is that just because I want to eat you so bad?”

And so it starts this epic TB and one that will be forever one my favorite ‘best book boyfriend’. 

I . . . love claiming Katie. Or being claimed by her. I’m not sure which is better.

Jack is such a tormented soul hiding behind a cocky, oversexualized persona, with a life full of sex and alcohol, his only coping mechanism to deal with the pain and hurt ever present in his days. Again, I’m not revealing more, because you need to discover all that is this man as you go along the story, so that you enjoy all the magnificence and beauty  of Tessa Bailey’s perfectly weaved background. 

I’m not broken with Katie. When we’re together, I’m grounded in the moment.

There’s something special inside this man. I feel it all over. He needs to feel it, too.

Dear Lord, they really clenched my heart with their interactions, and their unveilings. Not only Jack was beyond amazing, but Katie was just as brilliantly written. He was all that Jack wouldn’t even dare to hope for or dream. I loved that the main conflict was set earlier than usual in the book, since it just made me believe and react even more to whole scene, that had me literally sobbing and suffering with the both of them. They were just so Perfectly Imperfect and REAL!!! 

Katie knew. She sees me. She’s inside me, under me, around me. And it’s still not enough. 
I want inside of her, too. So deep she can’t dig me out.

Jack’s love and devotion – I would even say, worshipping – for Katie was so otherworldly perfect and dreamy, that translated in the most incredible quotes and thoughts. Seriously, it was almost impossible to choose (and you can see by the generous shortened amount I added to this, lol) from all heart touching moments and words of adoration.   

Of course, like every TB hero, Jack Garret not only made me constantly swoon and sigh, cry and sob, but also the man was a silver tongue devil with a deliciusly filthy mouth that was created to combust panties everywhere. Tessa Bailey really is unparalleled in the dirty talking department! 

“I seem to recall you were the one begging,” she says breathily. 
My balls squeeze like they’re in a vise. “If you like begging, I’ll give it to you, honey,” I rasp. “I’ll wear out the knees on every pair of jeans in my closet . . . begging.”

Speaking of holy Sundays, I’m pretty sure Katie’s ass up in the air is what heaven looks like. Her trembling thighs are the pearly gates and I’m just a sinner, begging Saint Peter to get inside.

Tessa Bailey indeed knocked it out of the park with Indecent Exposure! I have now a new TB fav in this book, and a new TB fav H, best book boyfriend in Jack Garrett – sorry, Will, I still adore you, but I just can’t resist a broken hero. Amazing and enthralling story writing, brilliant and complex characters, and a dynamic plot that just keeps you hooked from the very first line. Now, with all the teasing from this two first books, I can’t wait to see how it will all go down with Danika and Lieutenant ‘ColdHearted’ Burns! Tessa Bailey really is a Queen. Not only of Dirty Talkers, but a overall Queen of Romance! All the Stars to ALL the feels! 

“Thank you, mouth.” “You’re thanking my mouth?” She breathes, her eyes glazed over, head falling back. 
I hum low in my throat, leaning forwards to lick a path up the side of her neck. “Your lips open so you can breathe, right? I’m thanking them for helping my girl breathe.”

“Whenever I picture you, I think of the day we met. You’re walking away, telling me it’s going to take a long time to forget my eyes.” 
My heart wrenches sideways. “It would have taken a long time after five minutes, Katie,” I rasp. “Now it would take forever. Maybe longer.”

About the Author

Tessa Bailey - headshot

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Synopsis

Mackenzie Reed has officially been stood up. Not only has she wasted two years on Mr. So Not Interested but now she doesn’t even have pizza and the Mets to keep her company. Then he walks into her life—more than six feet of rugged, hot stranger. Maybe, just for tonight, Mac can pretend to be a girl she’s not. After all, she deserves a little no-strings fun…

As far as Wesley Porter is concerned, one night with Mackenzie isn’t nearly enough. She’s a mystery he wants to solve—if he can keep her from running for the door every time they touch. There’s obviously some serious chemistry between them, so why is she fighting it?

As one sexy hookup turns into another (and another), Wesley is determined to prove they were made for each other. But Mac has been hurt before, and she refuses to fall for this sexy, ridiculously perfect guy. In fact, she has every intention of fighting it…unless he can convince her otherwise.

Awww… Stumbling Into Love was such a sweet, funny and sexy story!
Aurora Rose Reynolds never fails in giving me a book that leaves me feeling happy and warm and fuzzy, and this Fluke My Life series takes the sweetness and hilarious moments straight to the RomCom level. I love it!

I know without a doubt she was made just for me. Now I just need to convince her that I was made for her, too.

Wesley was all that is characteristic of ARR heroes, Alpha, possessive, protective and super loyal to Mac from first sighting. And Mac is a sweet and funny – much like her sisters -, one of the guys woman with an independent streak that just drives Wes nuts, and I loved that! She makes him work for it and when he has some ‘typically stupid Y chromosome moments’ where I wanted to slap him upside his head, she definitely puts her foot down until he realizes the error of his ways.

“Thank you, gorgeous.” 
“For what?” She pulls her eyes from our boy to look at me. 
“For everything. For bringing me back to life and giving me something to fight for.”

This was such an amazing story with a beautiful Epilogue, that just makes me crave that much more Libby’s (and I’m hoping, Antonio) book! Can’t wait! <3 <3 <3 <3

“Who would have thought being stood up and stumbling into you would turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to me?”

From New York Times Bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes the second standalone book in the Everyday Heroes series. Just how hot will firefighter Grady Malone turn up the heat?

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.

By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someone else.

Excerpt

 

Preoccupied with a text on my phone from my agent, I walk into the kitchen and suck in a breath when I come face to back with Grady. He’s standing with his hand on the refrigerator door, head leaned inside, and his back fully exposed to me. It’s broad and strong and scarred immeasurably.

I stare.

I can’t help it. The marks are a dizzying array of dark and light and ridged and smooth. And they’re undeniably burns. Goosebumps chase over my skin as I imagine the pain he must have endured when he got those. I think of his habit of wearing unbuttoned shirts but never going shirtless and the hint of scars just visible above his collar that I never could have imagined led to this roadmap to hell on his back.

A part of me instinctively wants to reach out to touch them, bring some kind of comfort. It sounds ridiculous, even to me, but that doesn’t abate the urge.

“Not pretty, huh? Get a good look while you can.” His voice is gruff as his spine stiffens and body stills, emotion woven through the words.

“Thank God not all of you is pretty. I was beginning to feel majorly insecure having to live with perfection like you,” I say off the cuff, trying to make this situation less awkward. My attempt to settle the sudden tension sparking in the air around us.

“Perfection?” he asks as he turns to face me with a smile that masks the emotion swirling in his eyes.

“Yeah. You have scars. I have mermaid thighs.”

“Mermaid thighs?” He laughs. “What in the world are you talking about?”

“Thighs that touch from the top all the way to my knees.” I shrug as if it doesn’t bug me, as if I’m not highlighting one of the insults Tara threw at me. It’s a whole lot easier to make fun of myself so long as it puts him at ease.

“Do you ever give yourself a break?”

Do you?” I ask the question, sparking a silent battle of wills as we stare at each other and wonder what to say next about the other’s insecurities. Coming up empty, I shift gears. “I think there is some type of rule about how many abs are fair for a guy to have when the rest of us are just struggling to find one of them.”

His smile rings more genuine as he steps toward me, and I step back, my hips leaning against the counter now.

“Is that so?” His voice lowers as his eyes flick to my lips and then back up. “I’m sure you have some under your shirt there.”

Why does the simple action make it seem so hard to swallow?

He takes another step.

“What are you building outside?”

“A playroom.”

A nervous chuckle falls from my lips as I think of all of the versions of playrooms I’ve read about in my romance books. My cheeks stain red as I imagine Grady with a flogger in one hand standing beside a St. Andrew’s Cross.

“A playroom?”

“Yeah.” He takes a step closer so we’re breathing the same air, his voice husky enough to cause every part of my body to grow alert. “A playroom. You know . . . a pool table. Foosball. A real man cave.”

I exhale a shaky sigh, suddenly more than aware that he’s so close, shirtless, sweaty, and smelling like sun and soap mixed together. But it’s his eyes that make my thoughts falter. There’s an intensity to them I don’t expect from the perpetually cheerful Grady Malone.

“Ah, that kind of playroom . . .” But my words trail off as he steps even closer and braces his hands on the counter on either side of me. I can hear his intake of breath. The music floating in from outside. The pound of my pulse in my ears.

“Hey, Dyl?”

“Yes?” Our eyes hold, my lips fall lax.

“I need you to open up.”

What?” I question as his hand brushes against my hip and his fingers pull on the drawer handle I’m standing in front of.

“I need the bottle opener. You’re standing in front of the drawer it’s in.” His lips spread into a full-fledged grin as I scramble away from the counter and, of course, run smack dab into the hardness, all six foot plus of him.

And then I rebound off him again in a flustered state that has him laughing and me stuttering. “Sorry. I wasn’t—I didn’t . . .” His arms hold on to my biceps to steady me, which prompts me to look up and meet his eyes.

“We need to stop meeting like this,” he murmurs, the heat of his breath hitting my lips.

“We do.” Brilliant, Dylan. Freaking brilliant response. “I’ve gotta . . . I’ve gotta get back to . . . to writing.”

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there… 
Alec Rourke wasn’t going to waste a night out on the Strip, not even if his friends skipped their own co-ed bachelor-and-ette party. But he never expected to find a plus-one for their wedding—his new wife. 

And sometimes you find yourself married to a stranger… 
Alessia Valenti was having the worst day ever. Fired from her job. An eviction notice on her door. Her friends dragged her out to blow off some much-needed steam. Only she hadn’t planned on a stop at a wedding chapel with a hot hockey player. 

Married Into Love can be read as a standalone. Each book in the Bachelorette Party series features a different couple.

Excerpt

 

“I still can’t believe how fast all you guys fell for your women. You. Andrew. Jason.” I took a shot of vodka, and poured us both another one. “Not a single one of you were into the whole relationship thing at all, and then bam! You’ve got eyes for only one woman and a possessive streak a mile wide when it comes to her.”

Ryan took the vodka from me and gulped it down, shrugging his shoulders. “When you meet the one, you’ll know. Just don’t make the same mistake that I did with Tamara and let her get away from you.”

“That’s another thing all three of you have in common.” I chuckled and shook my head. “I’m not the kind of guy to fall head over heels for a woman at first sight like you guys did. But if hell froze over”—I paused to glare at Ryan as he burst into a fit of laughter—“and I get all riled up over some chick I barely know, I won’t make the same mistake you all did. No walking away from her, even if I think she belongs to someone else like Andrew did with Josie. No letting her run from me because she thinks I’m a douchebag who hits on a woman all night long, only to get up close and personal with some other chick while she’s in the bathroom, like what happened with Jason and Cee-Cee. And I sure as shit won’t let her sneak out on me the morning after like you did with Tamara. I’ll exhaust the hell out of her so leaving me is the last thing on her mind.”

We reversed roles, and it was Ryan who was glaring at my reminder of how he’d fucked up with Tamara and lost contact with her for months. Then he narrowed his eyes at me, and a smug grin tilted his lips. I shifted in my seat, uncomfortable with how pleased he suddenly looked.

“What?” I asked sharply, and the limo got quiet as Jason’s childhood friends stopped talking and turned to look at Ryan and me.

“Nothing.” His grin turned into a full-fledged, shit-eating grin.

“Bullshit, dude. What the fuck’s up with you? You went from being totally pissed at me to grinning like you know something I don’t. Don’t be a douche. Fill me in on the secret.”

“Karma, man. She’s a bitch,” he chuckled.

“You’re gonna have to do better than that,” I growled.

“That’s the second time I’ve heard you say that hell would have to freeze over for you to fall for a woman. And now you’ve paired it with bragging about how you’d handle it better than we all did.”

“Dude,” one of Jason’s friends drawled. “Talk about tempting fate. You’ve got to have brass balls to put shit like that out in the universe and think it’s not gonna come back to bite you in the ass.”

Hockey players tended to be a superstitious lot, but I hadn’t expected the wealthy, preppy guys Jason grew up with to believe in stuff like karma. Not that I grew up poor—my parents did very well for themselves, but they weren’t in the same league as Jason’s family and their closest friends.

“It is,” Ryan agreed. “And I’m going to enjoy every second of watching you squirm when it happens.”

Header Married Into Love

Oh My… Alec Rourke really was a white shining Alpha knight!

Rochelle Paige did it again! Bachelorette Party is without a doubt one of my fav series of hers, and it keeps getting better and better with each installment, always with some refreshing take on the sweet and sexy insta-love premisse, that Rochelle does so well, and I love.

“But in my defense, I wasn’t thinking clearly at the moment.”
“Because you’d been drinking too?”
He lowered his head and whispered against my lips, “No, because my reaction to you threw me for a loop.”

Alessia was having the very worse of days – really rock bottom – but with a little push from her sister, a outing to cheer her up, and boom! Talk about running into fate. One in the shape of deliciously sexy and alpha Alec.

“Kissing you on the mouth doesn’t make me less of a gentleman, beautiful.” I nibbled my way down her jawline and along her neck. “But there are other places I can kiss you that’d be downright filthy.”

Alec Rourke has seen it happened with his friends and his own brother, first they met and fell for their soul mate, but then they screw up in some way or another and let them get away, well, he’s decided that won’t happen to him, if and when he meets his one – that he’s secretly been missing – because he’ll do anything and everything to hold on to her. Well, it seems Fate, with a little (ok, a LOT) help from Alessia’s matchmaking sister, Ariana,  found the perfect Vegas way to solve this huge insta attraction that happened upon their meeting. A Vegas style wedding, the very night they meet, and while happily drunk! Now Alec got his permanent attachment, he just had to show Alessia all they were meant to be! And show her he did! All hearts and flowers, and über steamy times! I loved just how true charming knight he was. Swoon-worthy!

Rochelle gave us in this slightly longer than a novella story all the sweet and sexy moments I could have hoped for, and amazing main secondary characters that left me wishing to know even more about them. And that little teasing in the Epilogue – which I’d hoped was slightly longer, lol – about Ariana… Argh… I need her own tale, stat! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Alec Rourke.

My white knight.

The man I’d married on a drunken whim.

The best darn decision I’d ever made.”

Synopsis

Kensey Lyons has never had ‘normal’. Instead, she has a mother who lives in her head, a stepfather who’s on death row, and the stigma that comes with being the child of an extramarital affair. Writing has always been her escape. Knowing the reception her books receive will be tainted by her personal life, Kensey secretly writes under a penname when she’s not working part-time at her godmother’s bar. Her world might not be exciting, but she likes it exactly as it is.

When she meets alarmingly compelling businessman Blake Mercier, the snap of attraction is instant. She doesn’t like it. Doesn’t want to be drawn to this man who is blatantly dangerous, carries dark secrets, and lives life by his own rules. Neither of them make a great first impression on the other, so she’s more than surprised when he begins to pursue her with a single-minded focus that is unsettling, thrilling, and infuriating. Her gut tells her to keep her distance, but Blake won’t let her run. Won’t give her space.

There’s another person who won’t give her space. Someone who has discovered the secret of her penname and who seems intent on taunting her. And as Kensey struggles to identify her persecutor, Blake is by her side, determined to keep her safe … because Blake Mercier always holds tight to what’s his. Always.

Synopsis

Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen?

How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota?

Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair.

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful.


Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that’s who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left behind: stylish, cosmopolitan, and a massive pain in the butt. He wouldn’t trade a single day in his quirky little corner of the woods for all the high-maintenance beauties the city can offer.

Too bad this beauty has been deemed a health hazard and quarantined in his house. Damn his doomsday-prepper neighbors and their paranoid emergency protocols. Now  he has to keep Sky in and the pandemic squad out until the roads are clear. The question is, will that happen before or after Sky realizes she’s under house arrest?

Ah, the best-laid plans…

Excerpt

Logan addressed the pandemic squad up on the platform. “Sorry to break it to you. This is a free country. You can’t go quarantining people at will.”
“Wrong. Exactly because this is a free country, we can.”
There were some mumbles of agreement from the crowd, “That’s right” and “You got it” and “Try to stop us.”
“We live in a democracy. Let’s take a vote,” Carol suggested. “All in favor of quarantining Patient Zero, please raise your hands.”
Everyone, including a smirking Ty, raised their hands.
“Oh, come on,” Logan grumbled. “Really? You serious?”
“Motion accepted,” Carol said, wrestling the gavel from the mayor and banging it on the podium. “Besides, Patient Zero doesn’t have to know she’s been quarantined. Just keep her indoors by any means necessary until she gets better.”
“Or she kicks the bucket,” somebody chimed in.
Nuts. The whole bunch of them. Down to the very last one.
“She’s not Patient Zero, people. Her name is Sky and she’s got the flu, damn it. Not Ebola. Just a common, garden-variety flu.”
“By our calculations, Patient Zero has been here almost twenty-four hours. We’re late on containment,” Carol said.
Logan shook his head in dismay. Man, like talking to a wall.
“You had her hidden away for a whole day?” Ty asked impishly.
“She was just sleeping on my sofa.” Logan realized his mistake right away and turned to Carol and the rest. “You are not burning my sofa. Are we clear?”
Whether it was clear or not, Logan didn’t know, because Carol ignored his words. “And we’ll be monitoring you,” she added while the rest nodded. “At the slightest indication you’re sick—”
“Yeah, yeah, you’ll quarantine me too, and if I don’t get better fast enough, you’ll shoot me and cremate my remains.” Along with the damn couch, of course.
Carol rolled her eyes. “Don’t be silly.”
“Yeah, don’t be silly,” someone interjected. “We’ll autopsy you before that. Dissect you into tiny pieces.”
Jesus fucking Christ. Why couldn’t his neighbors have been the gearheads prepping for solar flares that would fry the grid? More kumbaya. Less ready to dissect.
“This is all your fault, Megan,” he said to his sister, who was sitting two rows behind him. “Couldn’t you have moved somewhere else? A normal fucking place?”
She just laughed. “You heard the lady. Keep Patient Zero indoors—by any means necessary.”
“Ha. Ha.”
“What? Skills too rusty to keep a woman indoors?” she asked.
“I can help,” Ty added. “Is she pretty?”
Gorgeous, actually. Big, dark eyes. Olive-colored skin. Delicate features. But that was beside the point too.
“Fuck off, both of you,” Logan muttered. Raising his voice, he addressed the crowd again. “You’re certifiable. All of you.”
“I totally agree,” Carol said. “We give you far too much leeway. Look at how flexible we’ve been about your toxic contaminants.”

Sky, a true city-girl, like myself, ends up in the middle of No Name – that’s no typo, you guys – and nothing in the world could have prepared her for her rescuer, the very definition of mountain man, Logan. Even less when she realizes all post-apocalyptic OTT preparation going on around her! IT WAS HILARIOUS!

“If I’m going to risk getting bitten, I hope it’s for a good cause.” 
She kissed him softly again. “So you know, I’m not a good cause, Alchemist. I’m a fantastic one.”

He could play games all he wanted, but at the end of the day, she was the one with all the power. The one fucking his heart into mush.

Sky’s The Limit really is a RomCom masterpiece! With PLENTY of sexy times and enough emotional and deep moments to touch our hearts, I couldn’t have asked for a better start for Elle Aycart’s brand new and SO promising series. I can’t wait to hear even more about this crazy gang! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Made for him: dressed-to-kill, stuck-up bitch on the outside, funny and caring on the inside.

“Jesus Christ. You’ve been infected.” 
“What do you mean?” 
“I’ve seen it many times. When a sane person starts dealing with preppers, either they run away screaming, or they get infected.”

 

“I love you, Alchemist.” 
“I love you, Butterfly.” 
A loud bark came from outside. Arnie. “Yeah, yeah,” Logan said. “We love you too.”

Ps. You need to One Click this baby STAT! You’ll thank me as soon as this preppers hits your kindle, believe me! Specially the not-really-prepper-but-still-reclusive hot bearded Logan!

About the Author

4994153

After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.

Elle loves to hear from readers!
