Excerpt

Copyright © 2019 Betty Shreffler
Crowned and Claimed Series, Book 2, Twice Claimed

Ryker’s strong hand cups my chin, turning my face to his, smothering my lips with a fierce sexual tension I wasn’t prepared for. His tongue invades my mouth with delicious need, his kiss the essence of fire burning ice. I melt beneath the dominance, succumbing to the passionate force of his lips moving over mine. When he pulls back, I’m caught in a haze, my body screaming for more. We’re silent in the darkness. Eyes lingering on me, his black irises study me in the bit of light cast from the stage. I feel captured in them as if I’m drowning in dark water, unable to see the surface, and my only choice is to sink and welcome what awaits me. Thunderous drums pronounce the woman’s orgasm, and my attention returns to the stage, my entire body humming with sexual desire. Through another act, the men fight, and by the fifth act, and the plot’s thirteenth night, both men lay with the woman. My cheeks flush red, my entire body alert, my nipples pert, and my pussy soaked with arousal. I watch, entranced as the three of them act out their lovemaking, each man taking her on either side. Biting into my lip, I fist my hands in my lap as a breath escapes my parted mouth. Glancing over at Ryker, his gaze is more than his usual intensity. I see the heat in his own cheeks, the sexual tension raging just below the surface. He licks his lips in a way that’s all too inviting, and I imagine myself moving into his arms and him kicking everyone out, so he can take me on the table.

Author Bio

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she's not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.

Blog Review

Delivered is book two in the Devil’s duet and must be read for you to understand this story. This book picks up right where book one ends. Book one hooked you and left you yearning for more. Well Eva Delivered alright in this book. Just when you thought that you had all the answers, think again cause more secrets are revealed and boy did I not suspect some of those. You are on the edge of your seat hoping that JD succeeds in his plan. 
JD is well complicated for one. Some may like others may not. He is intense, but that softer side he shows makes him so much easier to fall for him. The life he lives isn’t easy, but the one thing he does is love those he cares for. Throughout the years he protected not only Gabrielle but so many others. The passion between these two are just as intense. Gabby is strong, knows when to give in to JD and when to push against his buttons. Not only do we get their intense story, we get some others as well. You may want to hold your device while reading some chapters, just a warning. People may thing your crazy when you start speaking out loud with, “What!” “NO, NO”, etc. 


This story held the right amount of suspense, chemistry and heartache that you can only hope that with these secondary characters it will lead to more books. As I said in book one, I am so glad that I picked up this duet when I didn’t know who the author was cause this was an amazing duet to read. I will say if you didn’t like JD by the end of the book you will love him. I hope. This was the first set of books I have read by this author and it won’t be the last.

Title: Boss, I Love To Hate
Author: Mia Kayla
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2019 Cover Design: Jersey Girl Designs

Dear Mr. Brisken,

How do I hate you?
Let me count the ways.
1. I hate your smug, sexy millionaire face.
2. I hate your cocky, skirt chasing, playboy ways.
3. I hate working as your secretary—but, I love the pay. It almost makes dealing with you worth it.
4. I hate how my friends call you a BILF, when really BILK (Boss I’d like to kill) is more appropriate.
5. I hate that I need you to be my date for my best friend’s wedding because my ex-boyfriend, the King of Heartbreakers, and his new busty blonde girlfriend will be in attendance.
But mostly, I hate how once the charade is over, I might not hate you at all...it was so much easier when you were the Boss I Love To Hate

Title: Should've Been Us
Author: Jess Bryant
Publisher: Blue Lemon Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 20, 2019



Blurb

It’s a destination wedding, Fate, Texas style, and the thermostat isn’t the only thing about to hit its boiling point.

Lulu Nichols has lost the love of her life.

Her best friend, Derek, proposed to someone else. He’s marrying someone else. And oblivious to her feelings, he’s asked her to play best man at his wedding. She can’t say no, not without admitting her secret and ruining everything, so she pastes on a smile and heads to Mexico to watch the man of her dreams get his happily ever after, even if it isn’t with her.

Connor Shaw is finally ready to claim the love of his life.

He wants Lulu. He’s always wanted her. Even though she’s slightly crazy and seriously delusional about her relationship with Derek. Connor is the one that brings out her fire and matches it with his own. He’s the one that drives her just as crazy as she drives him and it’s way past time for her to admit that all their fighting is really just foreplay.

Together they’re like gasoline and a match; a powder keg destined to blow, but oh how satisfying an explosion it will be.

But is their spark the kind that burns fast and then out? Is the heat going to Lulu’s head or is there more to Connor than she’s ever realized? Could they possibly be meant for forever or are they destined to always be a should’ve been?

Excerpt

“You should probably slow down there, dollface.” A deep voice slid over her, down her spine and made her shudder. With revulsion, she told herself. It was definitely revulsion. “Wouldn’t want to get drunk and admit you’re in love with the groom, would ya?”
The taunt sent a red-hot surge of anger boiling beneath her skin, turning her cheeks pink and the ice in her veins to lava as she spun to face the man intruding on her pity party. She felt a little light headed when she noticed how close he was standing but she attributed that to the alcohol in her bloodstream. It only pissed her off more that it proved he was right. She needed to slow down on the drinks or risk making a scene before the bridal party even arrived.
God, she hated when he was right.
Connor Shaw was a stupid, know-it-all bastard. He always had some smartass remark for her. Always. He’d been Derek’s sidekick since the sandbox days but Lulu did not consider him a friend. He was more of a nuisance, an ache in her head that never quite went away. Case in point, he was here now, standing far too close to her, wearing some sort of cologne that invaded her personal space and made her stomach twist, and looking smug as hell because he knew, knew, that every woman in the room was looking at him now that he had her attention.
She hated him. Despised him even. But she couldn’t blame the women in the room for staring.
He looked like an angel, all golden and gorgeous and he had an obnoxious habit of always managing to stand directly in the path of the sun. Even now, in the low light of evening, a spotlight of glowing orange beamed through the windows above, highlighting his dark blonde hair and making it look as if he were wearing a halo. Sometimes it seemed like the sun literally revolved around him.
It was annoying as hell.
So was that knowing twinkle in his dazzling blue eyes. Because he wasn’t just ridiculously good looking, he also knew he was ridiculously good looking which made him just about the biggest kind of asshole on the planet in her estimation. He knew the effect he had on 99% of women and the fact that she fell into the 1% that didn’t go ga-ga over him seemed to give him some weird sort of enjoyment, which only made him more infuriating.
“I mean, unless that’s your plan.” He leaned an elbow against the bar beside her, edging even closer so that she had to force herself not to pull away, to put more space between them, because she knew he’d take her retreat as a win in their never-ending game of dare. “Liquid courage?”
“Go away, Shaw.”
His head tilted slightly as if he’d expected a different response, “Drowning your sorrows then? Have you finally admitted to yourself that you and Dare were never meant to be?”
Her jaw clenched because, as per usual, his assumption hit far too close to home. She attributed Connor knowing so much about her to the fact that they’d grown up together. He’d always been there, on the edges of her friendship with Derek, watching. Judging. He saw parts of her that she’d thought were well hidden from everyone, even Derek, especially Derek, but somehow Connor had seen her infatuation with their friend and he seemed to take absolute joy in calling her out on the stupidity of it.
“I said, go away.” She slipped her hand around the glass in front of her without looking at him but a big, warm, roughly masculine hand closed over hers, stopping her short.
Her breath caught at the contact and she silently cursed herself for the physical reaction. It had been too long since anyone touched her. Anyone. It didn’t have anything to do with this man no matter how gorgeous he was. It was the alcohol and the moroseness that had overtaken her at the thought of Derek getting married.
Derek. Married. To someone else.
Her blood chilled and she pulled her hand away from Connor, carefully, so as not to spill the liquid in her glass. She glared at him when he frowned and his eyebrows drew together. He was looking at her strangely, in a way she couldn’t place and she glanced away before he saw something else she didn’t want him to see.
“Just… slow down on the drinks, okay doll?”
“Don’t call me that.” She instantly flinched.
“Tell me you’ll slow down, at least until dinner is served and you put some food in your system and I won’t call you that again.” His blue eyes were serious and she felt something inside of her begin to splinter.
Was he actually trying to take care of her? This man that taunted her constantly? That set her every nerve ending on edge? Was he trying to make nice for once? Because he knew this must be hard on her?
She nodded, “Okay.”
He gave her a small, cautious smile, “Okay.”
“Okay.” She tipped her drink at him.
“Okay.” He said again and she rolled her eyes because she knew he’d do this all night if she let him get away with it.
“You can go now.” She shooed him away, “Go find someone else to play your mind games with, Shaw.”
“But playing with you is so much fun.” 
She groaned, “If you stick around, I’m definitely going to need another drink.”
