This weekend I was inflicted with the flu. Can’t a girl get a break? If you’ve been following my blog, then you know I’ve had sickness after sickness and now I’m just so done with not being well.

Despite everything, I have all this writing I need to do and deadlines I want to be able to meet, but I am not a super hero. I had to come to this realization as it relates to my day job and my side hustle. I can only do so much, until my body collapses.

So, this week, I’m going to try to take it easy and allow my body to heal. I’ve got my meds and my fluids and trying very hard not to become dehydrated, so wish me luck you guys. I’m going to need it.

If you want to read any of my books while you’re waiting on me to get well, and my new stuff to publish, you can find all my books here, where Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever is still FREE: LV Lewis books!

Love, Autumn by Nikki Bloom

Someone call Karma because she seriously sucks at her job. 
Leo Thompson was an absolute jerk in college and now he’s Mr. Tall and Handsome? 
What’s up with that? 
And, get this, he’s this super successful surgeon who managed to steal away my heart. 
Seriously, Karma, get your act together. 

But I guess I don’t mind all that much if he keeps giving me those bedroom eyes. 
Try as I might to remember the ridicule he’d put me through… 
The humiliation… 
I’m still drawn to that perfect smile of his… 
That oh-so-sexy V that leads to untold pleasures. 

Oh, if I could only forget about the past and fall into bed with this man. 
If only for a little while. 
I mean, if Karma doesn’t hold a grudge then why should I? 
A girl can have a little bit of fun, can’t she? 

Especially when that fun is Dr. Leo Thompson. 
The one man who can make me howl louder than any other. 
The one who knows my every weakness – my every bedtime kryptonite. 
And he uses it to his full advantage until I’m screaming so loud the whole town is bound to hear his name. 

So, someone page Dr. Thompson because I’ve got a bone to pick. 
Or better yet, he has a bone to pick with me. 
If you know what I mean. 
Let’s just hope that this doesn’t crash and burn like the last time. 
Because my heart cannot stand to be shattered a second time. 

Love, Autumn is a 40k-word sweet/heat-packed romance novella with no cheating and a HEA. Click BUY NOW to find out what happens when Autumn meets Dr. Handsome again!

Born of Sin (Book 1) by Deanna Richmond

FREE

The future can’t hold back the past.

Octavia Vail has no memory of her life before being found on a barren Connecticut road as a young child. The locals were shocked that she only spoke Latin and suspicious of the dead greenery and livestock that appeared in the wake of her arrival. Her only possession, a mysterious ring, may have something to do with it. And when the ring’s crest matches the one on a ring in a picture worn by a man who lived centuries ago, Octavia knows she must find out more about him. 

Victor Logan Marchette, a vampire who’s lived for over 600 years, is the CEO of a Philadelphia hospital that deals with blood diseases. The first 200 years of his life are a mystery to him, but he’ll soon find out the horrifying reason why. Meanwhile, Octavia begins work as a nurse in the same hospital, and the sparks with Victor begin to fly…

But Victor is betrothed to another, a vampire from a wild clan, under the orders of the vampires’ governing body, Cabalistis. And when vampires in both clans discover Octavia’s presence – and the hidden danger she represents — it’s all-out war.

Born of Sin is the first in a thrilling Gothic Romance series. In a world of darkness and strife, the light of love is all that stands against it. And even for the most hardened vampires, that light… is the true meaning of eternity.

*A re-release of Blood Thirst, An Eternal Romance, and a sneak peek of Book 2.

KISSING THE PROTECTOR
by JILLIAN RILEY

“One of them gets 24 Hour Protection and the other gets heated nights at the ranch” 

Carlos:
I certainly didn’t want to waste my time babysitting a wannabe actress. 

Especially, when in order to do my job well I would need to run everything by her stuck-up, pain in the ass cousin. 

But there was something about her cousin that struck a nerve with me.

She seemed so smart and extremely sexy.

What was the price I was going to pay for taking on the role of Falls Ranch Protector…

Sam
I hated working for my cousin. I loved her sure, but I had an education, more than one degree, and at almost thirty I should be using them for something more.

But when family needs you, your wants and dreams take the back burner.

I didn’t mean to want my sexy protector, but every time he came near me something inside me flared.

He was too much. Too handsome, too intelligent, too strong, and too stubborn.

I would go to Falls Ranch. I would play the part Chandra needed me to play, but when this job was over, that’s when I would leave it all behind. Start my real career, and my real life.

The only problem? Would I be able to walk away with my heart intact?

For the past six weeks I’ve been dealing with skin irritation. If you have eczema or one of those common skin conditions, then you know exactly what I’ve been up against. My primary care physician wasn’t able to help me this time, so I’ve been referred to a dermatologist who told me this morning that I would need to have another outbreak for them to “culture” the problem to determine what it is so they can help me. This is unfortunate because now I have to go through this dreaded irritation for the 5th time in order for them to give me some permanent relief.

This seems very counterintuitive, because it means I’m going to have to let myself be sick again in order for them to try to heal me. I wish medicine was more an exact science in this case than a “let’s troubleshoot this and see what we’ve got in our arsenal to cure what ails you.”

Despite my misery, I’m still going to write a good portion of this we. What are you doing this third week of February?

Hot Featured Read!

TOff Limits by Allie Hayden


The road to love can be a dangerous journey when you’ve got two eligible bachelors fighting for your attention.

Sebastian, my mid-summer childhood muse, now a renowned lawyer, stared me down with his piercing blue eyes.
He wanted me again, I could tell. By the smirk on his face and the way he undressed me with his eyes.
“Is it hot in here? Or is it just me?” I fanned myself, trying to get the flush on my face to ease. 
“Should be illegal to be that hot,” Sebastian purred, sending my skin into a goose bumped frenzy.

And then there was Ash, you know him– the lead singer of Dreams of Compass Gods.
Drop dead gorgeous and talent like no other. 
And the cherry? Well, that was me. 
“It’s most definitely you, princess.” Ash winked.
You’d think he’d want nothing to do with a normal girl like me. 

Three’s a crowd? I was crowded-in a hot and bothered way.
What am I supposed to do when these two beautiful men want me. 
Whoever said the most evil boys were the prettiest, were so god dammed right. 

Sometimes, you just can’t say no.

Loving The Billionaire Boss by Kristen Kara

She’s never forgotten her first love.
A scholarship to an elite college was supposed to be Olivia Davidson’s ticket to success—one she never had a chance to cash. But she’s found her own path, first through the military, now as an entrepreneur. She can attend her class’s fifteen-year anniversary with her head high. Because there’s one person with whom she has unfinished business…

When I kissed a gorgeous stranger in a red-mask
I had no idea he will be my future boss…

He is the God of one night stands!
The Sexy Irresistible Billionaire.

That’s how I can describe Josh Kirk.
He will stop your heart with a glance.
That gorgeous little douchebag!

Wait.

That’s not entire him.
He has a more elusive side.
Which the world doesn’t know.
Only I do.

Yes, I am insane.
Why is he my boss?

Why would I even care that much for this AH?
Maybe because I am lonely – with an obvious hole in my heart.
Never did I want my boss to bang me.
Or maybe, I do!

100% HEA

Big. Wild. Untamable.
3 rugged over-protective alphas in this box set bring all the steam, sizzle and heart needed.
This steamy box set will have you begging for more.

Book 1 – Temptation
Large. Huge. Magnum.
I get called these names all the time.
I’ve dominated the field for years.
But the moment I saw Reesa, I knew I wanted her.
Her curves, her eyes, and that sweet voice.
She is tempting me to the next level and I might lose control.
But she has a secret and I have to know what it is.
She is mine no matter what.
I’ll protect her at all costs.

Book 2 – Addiction
They call me beast for a reason.
I win, I score, I lead on and off the field.
But when I saw Kylie, I knew she was mine.
Those sweet juicy lips and her perfect curves.
There’s something about her that makes me go wild.
I have a secret to keep but there’s no way I can resist her.
I’ll tease her, tempt her and get her addicted to me.

Book 3 – Passion
I’m a monster, a predator on and off the pitch.
Nobody can tame me.

But when I laid eyes on Krys, I knew I wanted her.
More than just a hookup.
One dance with her and I was hooked.
Her hips, soft curves, full lips sparked a fire in me.
And now, nothing can stop me from claiming her.
My passion for her is a flame that only she can put out.

I believe I shared with you earlier this month how I’ve decided to do the Keto Diet. It’s still going extremely well, despite my earlier misgivings that I wouldn’t be able to satisfy my desire for those forbidden foods. Well, let me just say I’ve discovered Keto Desserts, and just this weekend my daughter and I made the spectacular one pictured above. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m able to enjoy one of my most favorite desserts of all time on this diet: Cheesecake!

Of course, this is a mini version, and it’s made without granulated sugar, but oh is this a delicious alternative to the original! To be honest, I could eat this version even when I’m not doing Keto and enjoy it. Rather than graham crackers, the crust is made of almond meal, butter, and Swerve (and if you want to be fancy, you can add cinnamon). The filling is of course, cream cheese, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and Swerve sweetener. Yummy!

Check out the Mini Keto Cheesecakes recipe below.*

I was cooking and planning this weekend, Instead of writing. Sorry!

Mini Keto Cheescakes*

Ingredients

Crust
1/2 cup almond meal
2 tbsp butter

Cheesecake
8 oz. cream cheese
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup Swerve or  So Nourished erythritol

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. To make the crust, melt some butter until liquid and mix in your almond meal until you have some that feels like crumbly play dough.
  2. Take about a teaspoon at a time and press the dough into the bottom of a muffin tin. Tip: line your pan with cupcake liners for easy removal! Cheesecake is very soft and if hard to scoop out without causing damage! Bake these crusts for about 5 minutes. They’ll come out slightly brown and crispy.
  3. Then take your room temperature cream cheese and beat it with an electric hand mixer or standing mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract, lemon, an egg and your sugar substitute, erythritol in our case. Beat until all combined.
  4. Use an ice cream scooper to fill all the crust-bottomed muffin tin cups evenly almost to the top (the mini cheesecakes will rise while in the oven but will flatten while refrigerating). You can also line each cup with a cupcake liner to make removing the mini cheesecakes easier.
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes. The mini cheesecakes should be slightly jiggly. Let them cool in the refrigerator for ideally 24 hours. But if you’re strapped for time, try putting them in the freezer for as long as you can.
  6. Once the mini cheesecakes are done cooling, slide a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them up. Then use a fork and your hands to help them out cleanly. As a delicious bonus, slice up some strawberries and arrange them however you like on top of the mini cheesecakes.
  7. We arranged ours in a flower pattern and added a dot of coconut butter in the middle to finish them off.

As I dropped my husband off at work this morning, one of the local radio stations was playing Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech in its entirety. I sat in my car long after having reached my destination listening, because those words wouldn’t allow me to leave them unheard. Dr. King’s words have always given me chills and they did so, yet again, this morning. His words have elicited awe, inspiration and hope for many for more than seventy years.

And considering where our nation is today, I pondered whether his sacrifice had been in vain and my answer quickly became a resounding NO! We may have strayed from his vision somewhat, but I still believe that we will see that day he espoused so many years ago…that our children will judge others not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. As human beings we all have more commonalities than not, so I truly believe we will eventually get there. Peace! <3

The Billionaire’s Miracle Family by Arabelle Stevens

Audrey Edlin’s life was completely under control with a predictable routine. She had a job she loved, friends, and a lovely home on Beacon Hill in Boston she inherited from her grandmother. Life was consistent, orderly, and comfortable. Except for the man-child living next door.

Donahue Alister lived in the townhouse connected to Audrey’s. He loved loud video-games, his raucous buddies, and pizza. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, so life was one big party to him. Or so it seemed to Audrey, who was nothing but annoyed by him.

Things change when a chubby, bundle of joy is left on Don’s doorstep, forcing the two neighbors to join forces for the welfare of little Chloe.

Sparks fly when they begin to see each other a little differently and realize that things, and people, aren’t always as they appear.

Kissing The Counsel by Jillian Riley

A fake marriage. A real baby. One huge mess.

Avery Price needs quick cash to save her bridal shop. When she discovers a way to win $50,000, she jumps at the chance. The only catch is, she has to get married or at least stage a convincing wedding. Her best bet is Beach Pointe’s most eligible bachelor. But he hates everything to do with marriage.

Veterinarian Dr. Jack Maddox is a magnet for every gold-digger in town, but Avery is the only one who’s ever walked out on the chance to share his bed. When he finds her in his kitchen in only an apron, he’s shocked that she’s changed her mind, but there’s a catch (of course).

Though he’d rather poke his eye out with a fork than even pretend to get married, he can handle a little acting for this fun-sized wildcat.

But, starting a family was never part of the deal…

Love Auction
by Lindsey Hart

OMG! Did I just bid and win a date with Shane Rempel for over one thousand dollars?!

What the hell was I thinking? Was I not the one who just said I would never spend that kind of money for a date with a stranger?!

Apparently, all sane thoughts just flew right out the moment HE walked up on that stage at the auction.

I was hooked line, sinker and all.

And let me tell you, if you spend that much money for a date, you definitely go on that date. So, I went.

And guess what? It kind of ended with me starting a war with the guy on the said date. And I even did a walkout.

Yeps and after that disastrous first meeting, you definitely do not expect the guy to turn up at your workplace asking for another date!

But he did. And guess what I did…

Marketing has always been difficult for me. In the beginning I was naive enough to believe that when I posted my book on Amazon, it would miraculously sell on it’s own. That has not been the case. I have had to stop just short of selling my first born to get eyes onto my books, just as most indie writers have done. Amazon owns the algorithm that decides whose books will see the light of day, so in order for indies like myself, who don’t have massive marketing budgets, to get eyes to see their books, we have to buy advertising in numerous ways. This includes buying Facebook Ads, AMS Ads, Bookbub Ads, trying to get on the various books lists, like Bookbub, Free Booksy/Bargain Booksy, Robin Reads, etc.

Marketing for ebooks is very competitive. It is also very subjective because it doesn’t work the same for every author. Many times we are taking a big gamble when we spend our marketing dollars (well at least less prolific writers such as myself are. More popular authors can afford to spend the big dollars on testing ads to get them just right. Less popular authors operate on wings and prayers). We are well aware of the old adage that it takes money to make money, but when you don’t have any to begin with, it is almost impossible.

Recently, I have re-discovered newsletter swaps. This is a cost-free and often fairly lucrative way to market ebooks without a cash outlay. I am beginning this week to swap with some other authors, so you’ll be seeing books from various authors and genres appearing in my Newsletter because other small authors and myself are sharing each others’s books. And let me just say, todays offerings are as HOT as Hell!! Check them out!

I am also still working on getting something out for you guys to read early this year. However, as you all know, I am still working a 60-hour a week day job, and a 20-hour weekend gig, so bear with me. 🙂

In the meantime, you may check out my backlist, as per usual at:  LV LEWIS BACKLIST. <3

Hot Featured Read!

Seduction by Henley Maverick

Any publicity is good publicity, right? Unfortunately, for Alivia O’Reilly, this just isn’t true. Having developed a scheme to create a media ruckus outside of her flower shop, Blooms, to drive up business, Liv was never prepared for the maelstrom her little publicity stunt would create.

Conor, her cousin, funded her little start up business and the extra attention is exactly what he didn’t order. A loan shark tied to organized crime, he prefers to stick to the shadows – as most rats do – and now there’s a spotlight on Liv, putting a wrench in his nefarious plans.

Also watching from the shadows? Rhys Gallagher, billionaire mogul and reformed crime lord. He’s been watching Liv for years, patiently waiting to make his move on the buxom brunette. Now, nothing is going to keep him from her. Not her business, not her independence, not her pride, and certainty not Conor. Because when Gallagher plays, he plays for keeps. And the prize… is Liv’s heart.

“When the time comes, Liv, you’ll make me an offer I can’t refuse.”

Other Steamy Recommendations!

 

Andrew
Three years ago, I broke the heart of the woman I loved.
I was too stupid to realize what I had.
Now, years later, I have it all.
Money. Power. Prestige.
It all meant nothing.
Until I met her again.
She was beautiful and tragic, and I wanted her again.
And she hated me.
But I would change that.
This time I would do right by Georgia.
There would be no more secrets.
This time, I wouldn’t give up.
Now that she is back in my life, I’m not going to let her go a second time.

Georgia
I swore I would never trust Andrew Bryant.
I had loved him, and he threw me away like garbage.
His secrets had torn us apart.
Three years later, I haven’t found any peace.
Now, suddenly, he’s back in my life.
He’s handsome. Sexy.
His smile sends shivers down my spine.
And I don’t want him back.
With my troublesome ex on my back, I have enough to deal with.
But he just won’t leave me alone.
There is nothing in this world that could make me give him another chance.
But why can’t I walk away?
Why does part of me want him to stay?

 

In a town full of secrets, everyone knows my story
My husband left me for another woman
And I vowed never again.
I threw myself into building my life back up from the rubble it had become.
I made a name for myself with the diner my grandfather left me.
I was strong. I was independent. I needed no one.
Then he came to town.
Exotic and calm, I was drawn to him from the beginning.
He pulled me in and made me feel things I didn’t think were possible.
But can I trust him? Does he feel what I feel?
How can I let him break down the walls I spent so much time building?

After my wife died, I was lost and alone.
I liked it that way.
Relationships only led to pain and I couldn’t live through that again.
But then I met her.
Flaming hair and blue eyes trapped me in her net.
But guilt and grief are hard to let go.
How can I let her in, when I don’t deserve the happiness she offers?
Can the love of Thanksgiving and the magic of Springvale bring us together and banish the ghosts of the past for good?

LV’s Monday Meanderings… January 7, 2019!

Happy Monday Meanderers! Here’s this week’s installment of the regular newsletter I created to keep me engaged with you. This will provide a way for you to know what’s going on with me even though I’m not camping out on Social Media anymore. As usual, I have some great books to share with you, including a still FREE copy of my classic, Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever!

Writing, Writing, Writing

(Among Other Things!)

Writing for me is catharsis, but it is also a double-edged sword. Why? Because writing requires me to spend hours with my “butt in a chair, hands on keyboard” (or BICHOK, for those of you who are catchphrase savvy). Over time, my weight creeped up in epic proportions and my health has suffered, but the writing is just one part of the equation. There are many other stressors in my life that contribute to the equation that has gotten me to where I am now. But that’s neither here nor there, because I don’t care to elaborate on every single non-positive thing in my life right now. We’ll just concentrate on weight for starters.

Back in December, I had a minor medical issue which required a procedure be done in urgent care. I got on the scale and it scared the crap out of me! I had somehow allowed myself to get to a weight that I’d rather not share with you at this time. (Oh vanity!) So, I said to myself, “Self, you’ve got to do something about this pronto.” Well, pronto became New Year Resolution, and New Year Resolution became Diet, and Diet chosen became Ketogenic.

Beginning January 2nd I jumped on the bandwagon of a lot of Hollywood A-Listers and Diet Aficionados who have sworn by the Ketogenic Diet and, so far, I’m seeing promising results. As an April baby, I tend to be prone to not finishing things unless it’s a passion or something I love so much it never occurs to me to leave it incomplete. I am hoping that by telling you all about this new thing, you will keep me accountable. Also, I hope you will tell me if you’ve been successful with a diet or lifestyle plan that you’d like to share with me. I love hearing inspirational success stories, or new beginnings, so email me at lv.lewis148@gmail.com and tell me what you’ve done lately to make yourself healthier.

I am working on getting something out for you guys to read early this year. As per usual, I am working a 60-hour a week day job, and a 20-hour weekend gig, so bear with me. 🙂

I discovered Jewel E. Ann’s books just last year when I read her Epoch Series, and Oh My God! Her books have become my balm in gilead, my piece de resistance, my reason d’etre, and so many other superlatives, I can’t. I just can’t without one-clicking… Every. Single. One. (of her books!) I have said before I’ve wanted to be other authors when I grow up, but I’ve just got to say, I really, really want to be Jewel E. Ann when I grow up because she nails all those crafty things I tend to have major issues with, and she does is with such ease and flair, I just want to give every one of her books a standing ovation, because she hits every single emotion so perfectly, and her plots are so on point, I am enamored by her.

And with her newest offering, A Place Without You, I am equally as enamored as I have been with her other books (or maybe moreso). Jewel writes love triangles that absolutely do not get on your nerves, if anything, she’s able to show how these can come to be, and how they can be resolved despite someone having to be hurt. Henna, is a free spirit, born of parents who come from the artistic world. Bodhi is her contemporary cowboy whom she meets on the way, and several times during Coachella. And I just want to say, Jewel E. Ann had me at Coachella. I absolutely love that she set this in the beginning here. Henna and Bodhi connect in a huge way at Coachella, but then they separate without a goodbye and Henna returns to her life which takes a different turn when she believes Bodhi is lost to her.

A Place Without You packs a wallop of forbidden fruit, emotion, and all the feels one would expect from a novel from Jewel E. Ann. I won’t elaborate further on the plot, but you can certainly get a few more hints from her book blurb on Amazon. Grab your copy of A Place Without You while you’re there. You will most definitely not be disappointed!

Title: European Tour

by L.V. LEWIS

FREE

Broken. Guilt-ridden. Ready to start over.

Brody Kent walked away from the pinnacle of rock superstardom and never looked back. Financially, he never has to work again, but takes jobs as a personal assistant to keep his mind—and other things—busy. The women he works for always want something, and he’s more than willing to help. But when he’s sent to work for a pop princess, Brody will do anything to make her happy—even if it means admitting the ugly truth about his past.

Smothered. Talented. Ready to start her life.

Successful pop star, Skylar Samuelson is about to embark upon the turning point of her career—a summer tour in Europe. Her manager mother has promised to pull back and allow her full reign of the overseas tour. When Brody Kent becomes her new assistant, Skylar can’t deny the attraction. He’s perfect. Everything she’s ever wanted. But Brody’s hiding something and the truth may break her. If someone else doesn’t break her first…

Lies. Betrayal. And the truth that could ruin them all.

 

This is book one of the Rocking the Pop Star Series, book two (World Tour) is also available for a nominal price.

Title: World Tour

by L.V. LEWIS

$2.99 or FREE for Kindle Unlimited Subscribers!

Brody Kent retired from music after the death of his girlfriend during the heyday of his rock band, The Savages. Now, he’s persuaded to take his alter-ego Savage Saban back into the limelight in front of a different audience.

Brody’s new girlfriend, pop icon Skylar Samuelson is preparing for the domestic part of her World Tour, where together they hope to merge their fan bases.

Grappling with the fame that his notoriety brings once again, Brody reluctantly takes the stage. On his first night performing he returns to his dressing room to find a message written in red lipstick on his mirror.

Could Kimberly Heart, his dead ex-girlfriend, really have written it?

Blotting out the possibility, Brody continues with the tour, but his relationship with Sky begins to suffer as his old band members turn up at the fourth concert and criticize him for selling out.

And then he receives another, chilling message.

As Brody’s life and relationship with Sky begins to implode, he finds himself pushed to the very brink by someone he never expected. He now stands to lose everything he holds dear.

Is there any way back for Brody and Sky?

LV’s Monday Meanderings… December 17, 2018!

Happy Monday Meanderers! Here’s this week’s installment of the regular newsletter I created to keep me engaged with you. This will provide a way for you to know what’s going on with me even though I’m not camping out on Social Media anymore. As usual, I have some great books to share with you, including a FREE copy of my own classic, Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever! This FREE Promotion will run until December 21, 2018, so get it while it’s available!

Writing, Writing, Writing!

So, just before I began the FREE Promotion for the Jungle Fever books, I commissioned someone to do a new cover, but they were late delivering (story of my life!) so I had to take matters into my own hands. Yes, the covers which were displayed during the sale were done by yours truly. My skills with removing subjects and putting them into other backgrounds was severely tested. The Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever cover was kind of jacked, but I did pretty good with the Exit Strategy Cover.

Today, I’m sharing with you the covers which were done by the “professional,” who only maybe did a fraction of a bit better than the covers I created. I hired a different cover creator for The Venture Capitalist, and she did a bang up job! Therefore, in 2019, I’ll probably hire the cover professional who created the Venture Capitalist cover to do all the Jungle Fever books.

Anyway, today I’m sharing, as usual, some books featured by my author colleagues, which I hope you’ll check out, together with grabbing your FREE copy of my Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever, and your $0.99 (or FREE for KU Subscribers) copy of Exit Strategy, and your $3.99 or FREE from KU copy of The Venture Capitalist. And if you’ve already got your free copy of the books, the Audiobooks are a steal if you’ve already purchased the books! I’m off to write now!

Featured Novels This Week!

 

Title: The Protector’s Promise

by Ryli Jordan

FREE

Sara

I shouldn’t have come home.

Six years ago I put hundreds of miles between myself and the man of my dreams; Ryker Calisto. But everything crumbled and I limped home, tail tucked between my legs.

Of course, I would bump into him right away. That’s how fate works, right? Somehow he’s more mouthwatering than ever. His real estate family business owns nearly half of the condos in Oregon and the West Coast.

He’s the strong silent type, my alpha male protector.

I shouldn’t have come home.

I’m NOT ready for this — or am I?

Ryker

Sara ran away the same night I was going to propose to her six years ago. The same night I declared my love for her, she told me it was over. And she left.

Was I bitter? You bet!

Now here is our second chance at love. I’m not going to run her off again. I love her and I want to make everything right, but first I need to find out why she left.

I don’t want to lose her again.

But I’ve also got secrets that might keep us apart for good.

This stand-alone novella contains adult-content, but no cheating, no cliffhangers and a happy ending for sure!

 

New Neighbor

by M.L. Sapphire

$0.99 of FREE for KU Subscribers

Description

LILY

An environmental studies major, I’d always been passionate about saving our planet. So you can imagine how I felt when Dean Foster, the CEO of the biggest polluter in Boston, moved to our street. I hated him – or, at least, I wanted to. But between Dean’s charm, wit, and rugged good looks, he didn’t make it very easy.

When Dean asked me to show him around the area, I wanted to say no. But that wouldn’t have been the neighborly thing to do. So, I reluctantly agreed, making it clear that I was going as a friend, nothing more. Sure, he was extremely successful with a chiseled body, a sharp wit, and a sense of humor almost as sarcastic as mine. But Dean’s company was responsible for more pollution than any other business in Boston. I could never let myself fall for someone like that.

DEAN

I bought a house near the ocean to get away from the city. It was supposed to be a place where I could be alone, just me and my dog. But when I met Lily, a gorgeous young woman who lived down the street, my desire to be alone disappeared.

Lily was a college senior, several years younger than me. When we met, I was blown away by her wit and passion for the environment. Well, that and the way her butt, breasts, and ocean-blue eyes popped in the matching dress she was wearing.

When I asked Lily to show me around my new town, I was already interested in her. As I got to know her better, especially when I found out she was still a virgin, that mild interest turned into a burning desire to make Lily mine. The only problem was that she hated my company and was even involved in planning a protest against us. But I didn’t get to where I was by letting problems stop me from getting what I wanted.

Every problem has a solution.

*** New Neighbor is a 65,000-word steamy standalone romance novel with lots of dirty goodness, no cheating, and a guaranteed Happily Ever After! ***
