Rules of Engagement ~ Mika Jolie

 

Title: Rules of Engagement
A Platonically Complicated Novel
Author: Mika Jolie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 25, 2019

 

Blurb
Rule #1: Don’t fall in
love.
As a single dad, my life revolves around my daughter. No complaints…until my ex-wife forces my hand over custody.
I needed a cover story. In steps Katharine Morello. My best friend’s sister is ready and willing to be my fake fiancée.
Overnight we’re engaged. A temporary arrangement.
No sex.
No strings attached.
No complications.
Easy, right?
Not quite.
The last few months, I’ve been doing dirty things to her in my imagination. But that’s all they’ll ever be. Fantasies.
Rule #2: Don’t give in
to temptation.
Neither of us is looking for a relationship. Been there. Done that. Even drank the Kool-Aid.
So, you see, I can resist beautiful, sexy Katharine. It doesn’t matter she’s hot as f*ck with an amazing personality to boot. All I have to do is NOT touch her.
I’ve got this.
Spoiler Alert…One night make-believe merges with reality. Sparks fly—and burn. Now I want her. All of her.
Rule #3: See rule
#1—don’t fall in love.
Man.
Hindsight’s a bitch.

Excerpt
She moves
into my space and tilts her head up, her eyes light and mischievous. “Kiss me,
Lucas.”
The breath
leaves my lungs in one gigantic swoosh. “Are you sure?”
“Let’s give
them a show.”
I’m about
to kiss Kate.
This time,
I’m prepared.
Clasping my
hands on either side of her face, I angle my head slightly. There’s a pause. A
suspended moment where our eyes meet. The swirl of emotions I see
there—apprehension, lust, desire—makes my heart trip.
We exchange
breath. And then finally, my mouth dips to hers.
I try to
remind myself we’re pretending, to stay calm, and in control.
My mouth is
firm against hers. Her lips are sugar plum sweet and silky soft. The kiss
remains gentle, slow. We hold it for a few seconds before our lips begin to
move in perfect sync, slowly, cautiously.
Curiosity
nudges for more. I move my hand from her cheek to the back of her head, my
fingers tangling in her hair, holding her lips to mine, silently asking for
permission. To my delight, a needy little moan echoes from her mouth to mine.
She wraps her arms around my neck and parts her lips in gentle invitation.
And our
tongues hungrily say hello.
A
stimulating cocktail of endorphins explodes inside me. Sparks fly in every
direction, lighting me up like fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Every
single nerve explodes with heat.
I’m fired
up. Turned on.
From
somewhere deep in the recesses of my mind, I know this is a cover, that we
aren’t real, but with Kate’s lips on mine, it’s hard to keep that thought. On a
groan, I take all she has to give and deepen the kiss, forging ahead with no
regrets. No reservations.
Many tales
have been written about the Big Apple. But there’s nothing like kissing the
woman you’ve been thinking about for what feels like forever in the middle of
Manhattan.
The chaos
from the street fades. The worries of the day evaporate like a summer shower
falling onto a hot car, all noise instantly muting. The click-clack of heels
rushes by us. We don’t hear them. People brush against us. We don’t feel them.
We are
locked in the present, kissing each other as equal partners in passion, fucking
each other with our mouths like we’re drowning and we are each other’s air, as
if our lips were created for this sole purpose.
Talk about
heaven on earth. 
This kiss
is easily the hottest, most erotic kiss of my life.
My pulse patters
faster and faster. The heat pouring into my veins as if pumped in through a
hypodermic needle has nothing to do with today’s summerlike temperature but
with desire.
I move one arm
low around her back, drawing her closer, letting her feel every inch of me, how
much she affects me. And we kiss and kiss and kiss.

Cash is a car mechanic with a secret. Head down, sleeves up, he hides from the past as much as his shattered heart, until a reluctant stumble into a Tottenham bar ends in the one night stand of his dreams.


Hunt saboteur Rae can’t believe his luck when he wakes up the next morning. Cash is gorgeous, and the hottest hook up he’s ever had. He doesn’t expect to see him again, until a twist of fate lands him on Cash’s doorstep a few months later.


United by a cause that’s broken Cash before, they are drawn together. They have more in common than they ever imagined, but with Cash haunted by the past, and Rae so tangled in the present, it’s not long before love isn’t enough to keep them alive.

Demon Mine
Demons Series Book 1
by Marina Simcoe

They are big, strong and silent. Their faces are hidden behind masks and
their bodies are enclosed in armor suits. They took me from my home
in the middle of the night and have been holding me in isolation for
months. I don’t fully understand the purpose of my captivity. No one
explains anything to me. No one even talks to me.
Nearly driven to madness with no more hope for freedom,
I no longer care if I live or die.
And then he speaks to me. Just a few words . . . He throws me a lifeline
and helps me find my way back to sanity. He becomes my only
companion. My light in the darkness.
I suspect they may not be entirely human.
What’s worse is that he may be one of them.
New Edition, 2018

Still, when I get a chance to run, I take it.
A rebel and a convicted criminal, he has spent most of his existence
suspended between two worlds, in a state his kind call Deep Sleep.
Nearly forgotten by all.
Until I disturb his slumber.
The touch of a demon awaken is always dangerous.
And for me, it turns out treacherous in more ways than one.
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.
LET THE SLEEPING DEMONS LIE.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from Parker International (& the arrogant, condescending CEO) effective two weeks from today.

This was a VERY EASY decision to make, as the past two years have been utterly miserable. I wish his next executive assistant all the luck in the world (she’ll need it) and if my boss should need me to do anything over the next two weeks, kindly tell him that he can do it [his] goddamn self…

Sincerely (Not Really),
Tara Lauren

That’s the version of my two weeks’ notice I should’ve sent to my boss, because the more professional version–the one where I said I was “grateful for all the opportunities,” and “honored by all the rewarding experiences” over the years?

That letter was rejected with his sexy, trademark smirk and an “I highly suggest you read the fine print of your contract…”

So, I did.

And now I’ve realized that unless I fake my death, poison him, or find a way to renegotiate my impossible contract, I’m stuck working under one of the cockiest and most ruthless bosses in New York.

Then again, I thought that was the case until he called me late last night with an emergency proposition…

**This is a standalone contemporary romance.**

We vowed forever. What we got was two years.
But now I’m back to take back what was stolen from me.
She’s mine to have, and mine to hold.
Again.

A filthy oil-rig roughneck like me had no business with a wife like her. She was the pretty little flower I never should have put my dirty hands on. But Leanna was my everything. My heart. My obsession. And one year ago, they told me another man took her away from me.

…I just found out that was bullshit. And now, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Her family never thought I was good enough for her. The wrong side of the tracks, and too rough and savage for their sweet, innocence Leanna. They lied to keep me from her, and her from me. But now that I know the truth?

Well, now I’m coming back for what’s mine.

I’m twice the man I was before—harder, fiercer, and even more obsessed. For richer or for poorer? Well, she had me poor and loved every second of my rough hands pinning her to our marriage bed. I’ve made my fortune since, but I’m ready to throw it all away to get her back in my arms where she belongs.

The bastards that took her from me think they can keep us apart.

…They’re dead fucking wrong.

A year ago, I thought I lost her. Two days ago, I learned the truth. And tonight, I’m taking back my bride.

And I’ll burn the whole world down to get her if I have to.

Looking for a ridiculously over the top alpha hero completely obsessed with claiming his one and only? You’re in the right place! This one’s equal parts sweeter than sugar and hotter than sin, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to eat it right up ;).

As with all my books, this standalone is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

From me to you

Sooo late! I had to work today. I don’t usually work on Saturday, but someone else wanted the day off and I covered for her. So I’m a bit late. Okay, a lot late.

I started my day having to shovel snow. Ack! I only do that at work, and very unwillingly. So no one else was available so I shoveled snow. I hate snow. Too bad I live in Wisconsin!

I’ll be able to write more tomorrow. I have an editor lined up for Finding Faith. So I have a deadline to finish it before the end of February. I’m hoping to have it done by my birthday. Have a couple of beta readers go over it. So if there is any interest in beta reading, let me know! Just leave a comment below.

I have a cover that needs just a little tweeking and if I’m lucky, Finding Faith will be out at the latest by May 4th.

I’m trying for April but editing, ugh. Why can’t my writing be perfect?

Have a good rest of the weekend and I’ll be back tomorrow with my normal Sunday Sales!
