FIRE ON THE MOON Excerpt:

Francesca has escaped from her uncle’s killers and the fire they set in his house. Now she’s running down the beach, trying to get away.

“Wait, I saw what happened. I want to help you.”
Saw what? The fire? The gun? The dog? Still afraid to trust anyone, she looked toward the houses that ran along the shoreline, wondering if she could slip between them and get away. The movement slowed her and the man who had called out put a hand on her shoulder.
“Stop running.”
The hand sent a zing of reaction through her, but she simply couldn’t give in to it, not after everything that had happened. When she tried to wrench herself away, she stumbled. She would have landed in the sand, but the man caught her, pulling her against his body. He felt solid and well built, well muscled without being a weight lifter type, and his arms around her were reassuring in a way she couldn’t articulate. He could have easily locked her in his grasp, but he wasn’t holding her tightly. The knowledge that she was free to step away from him kept her standing in his embrace, comforted by the sturdy feel of him.
As his hands soothed over her shoulders and down her arms, she struggled to stop trembling.

“It’s okay. I can help,” Zane said again, hearing the thick quality of his voice. His natural impulse had been to help a victim. Yet as he cradled this woman in his arms, he was feeling a lot more than the need to offer aid.
She didn’t answer, and he understood why she couldn’t rely on him, or anybody else right now. She’d escaped from a burning building, only to see two men try to capture her. They’d been taken down by what looked like a large dog that had appeared out of nowhere. She didn’t know the dog was a wolf, and the wolf was him. And he couldn’t tell her he was the one who had rescued her. He wouldn’t give away that information to anyone he didn’t trust implicitly.
He’d left the men rolling on the ground, bleeding and nursing major bites. And he’d made sure some of those bites were in their hands so that firing a gun would have been almost impossible. As a wolf, that had been the best he could do to disable the thugs without killing them. Then he’d found his running shorts, shirt and shoes where he’d left them in the bushes and changed back to human form, pushing through the transformation before taking off after the woman.
She raised her head, looking dazed, and maybe that gave him his best chance.
“Let me help you.”
She focused on his face, and he knew she was trying to get a sense of him beyond the superficial exterior of a lean, fit guy in his early thirties who had come dashing down the sand after her when nobody else had turned away from the fire.
He tried to project honesty and calm.
“Who are you?” she asked in a shaky voice.
Your life mate. The answer leaped into his mind, stunning him. Yet he pushed the crazy notion down into the depths of his soul as soon as it had surfaced.
She spoke while he was still feeling dizzy with the possibility of truth.
“Why would you help me? What’s this to you?” Her question only reinforced the emotions clanging through him.
By an effort of will, he kept his gaze steady. He couldn’t deal with the life-changing idea that had slapped him in the face, but he knew he had to cope with the immediate situation.
“It’s my job. My name is Zane Marshall. I’m a private detective. I work for an agency called Decorah Security.”

As MVP tight end for the Rough Riders, I’m used to getting what I want. When I want. 

If my sexy as sin looks don’t seal the deal, my larger than life bankroll does.

Plus, once women see what I’m packing below the belt, they always come back for more. And I’m happy to oblige, before sending them on their satisfied way.

None of that matters now. My sights are set on a Super Bowl ring—kicking ass on the field and staying focused are my only options, getting distracted is not.

Then Shannon Hale shows up and suddenly I’m fumbling like a rookie over the quarterback’s sassy little sister.

She’s not like other women. Wants nothing to do with me… NFL’s resident playboy. The harder she pulls, the more I push.

Now the only game I want to win involves getting her in my bed, but I still have one little problem. She’s very much off limits.

Good thing I’ve learned when you’re playing for keeps, sometimes you have to play dirty.

Dirty, Reckless Love by Lexi Ryan

.99 cents

From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman torn between two men from her past, searching for missing memories that could hold the key to her future.

I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .

Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away. 

I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him. 

Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.

I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.

I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. It may be the very thing that could destroy us.

My rule: Never let an old flame burn you twice.

Other people gave second chances—I didn’t. My modus operandi was to move on to the next girl in line and forget the previous one.

So when Tawnee Milano said she needed her space, I let her go.  Then I left our mutual employer for a new job with the CIA and didn’t look back.

But a coded distress message from her sends me right back to where I was when we first split up. The possibility of losing her forever forces me to relax my rigid stance. With her life in danger, I’m finally facing my true feelings for her.

Mottos are all fine and good in theory. Not so much in practice.

Now my hard line policy is to get her back—and keep her this time.

It can’t get much worse than finding your fiancé banging his secretary over the back of your couch, right?

Wrong.

Try discovering your unforgettable, dirty talking, arrogant as f*ck one-night stand is your new boss. The same man that you hate with a fiery passion but your traitorous body refuses to read the memo.

I’ll admit, Liam Maxwell’s cockiness is not unwarranted—in the bedroom or the boardroom—but I’m a professional. I refuse to let an inconvenient attraction affect my career. I’ll just have to do what I do best: manage the situation objectively.

Why do I get the feeling that’s going to be much easier said than done?

She was promised to the mysterious mountain men in order to have their baby. Now they’re ready to collect their reward.

Twenty-one-year-old Soraya has lived almost her whole life under the shadow of being promised to the mysterious men in the mountain – a deal struck in return for saving her father’s life. Now the time to present herself at their door has arrived.

For Soraya, this means going from the sheltered, friendless, cruel and unloving care of her grandmother to an equally daunting and strange situation in the eerie mansion hidden deep in the dark mountain. There are rumored to be hideous monsters gracing the dilapidated castle-like house, but nothing prepares Soraya for when she meets the three men determined to extract their repayment in full.

For the sake of her father, she’ll pay the debt, then she’ll start living the life she was meant to live…

…until their bold, immodest examinations and hot intimate discipline leave her quivering and questioning everything.

Shrouded in the darkness is a devastating secret that will leave her entirely undone.

Publisher’s Note: This steamy, contemporary reverse harem romance contains elements of mystery, ménage, and power exchange.

I only wanted a cup of coffee. Alone.

It was a simple request, right? Just stroll into the coffee shop on the corner, grab my usual cup of liquid nitrogen, and walk back out.

All while minding my own business.

But I had to walk in at that exact moment. Not ten minutes earlier. Not ten minutes later. Precisely when Savannah Fields needed someone to help her. When no one except me had the courage to stand up for her.

After the incident, she looked at me like I was her hero.
But I’m no hero.
I don’t even know who or what I am anymore.
Who is Nick Tucker? A DEA agent? A criminal? Both? Neither?
The lines I crossed while undercover blurred my staunch sense of morality.

Then the auburn-haired beauty showed up at my apartment, begging for my help. I couldn’t turn her away.

The more I lost myself in her, the more I found myself again.
Or so I thought.
Even a broken clock gets to be right twice a day.
There’s a fine line between right and wrong, love and hate, heaven and hell.

Dreams tug, tease, and sometimes retreat into a subtle promise of a different tomorrow. A tomorrow Elio Delacruz never expected. Not after a lifetime of chasing a single goal.

Alongside his closest friends, Elio lives and loves his passion—his art. His existence depends on the whimsical, on the intangible, on the constant motion of a traveling busker.

When a tumultuous shadow from his past forces him to return to the suffocating island of Key West, his every instinct tells him to run. To flee from the scars of his youth.

And then he meets Vianella Manco. She’s only supposed to be a temporary distraction until he can break free of the island. His heart is never supposed to beat for her. And she’s never supposed to wish for anything beyond the easy moments they steal from one another.

But, sometimes, purposes change and the truths you believed turn out to be nothing more than pretty lies.

A jaded biker on a mission.
A strong woman who hates bikers.

When these two lost souls collide, all bets are off. 

Neil “Ax” Barron walked away from the Black Thorns MC two years ago. Now he’s back as Vice President for one reason. To take out the President of ruthless rival club, the Devil’s Mavericks. A sadistic, soulless man who is also his father. Ax has his orders to carry out his mission covertly so Black Thorns isn’t thrust into open war. But when he meets his contact–a ball-busting, smart-mouthed woman–he quickly realizes he’s got his work cut out for him.

Roxana James hates bikers and a relationship is the last thing she wants. Settling down is her worst nightmare. No man will tame her! She’s content on her own and she’s done well for herself. Until a rough, dirty-talking biker turns her world upside down. He challenges everything she’s ever known.

Together, they break down one another’s walls. Two opposites really do attract. The fiery connection between them quickly evolves into much more, despite resistance from them both.

But, with so many forces aligned against them, and Rox determined not to become part of Ax’s club life, is there really a place for their love? Or, will the sacrifices needed for them to be together, come at too high a price?

Gumshoe ~ Laura Hawks

 

Blurb:

Mia Thomas just turned 15. On her special day, her teacher needs to speak with her parents, her father gets arrested and a stray cat starts talking to her. So much for a Happy Birthday!

With the help from her new familiar, Gumshoe, Mia sets out to clear her family’s name and save them from financial ruin.

Will her snooping cause her own death or will her coffee-drinking, wise-cracking, booze-desiring familiar come to her rescue?

 

Excerpt: Unsure of what else to do, Mia grabbed some tuna fish and a plate and headed out to the back. She set the plate down, then moved across the alleyway to sit on the stoop of the opposite building.

“Poisonous mushrooms?” Mia talked to herself in disbelief. “I made the soup. I cut up the mushrooms and put them in the soup. Somehow this is my fault. I served them. What have I done?”

“You didn’t do anything. You didn’t pick them out, so this isn’t your fault.”

The voice rang in her head, her ears heard faint meows. She looked up and around, trying to see who was talking to her. The only thing she saw was the Siamese cat she’d been feeding the past week. She shook her head to clear it of cobwebs she was sure were there.

She watched the feline move towards the food she’d left for him. He sniffed it, but then skirted around it to go behind the dumpster. Odd, she thought at his bypassing the food.

She watched the cat move around, almost searching for something, though she couldn’t imagine what. “Meow. Meow. Mew. Meep. Eep. Meoooow.” The Siamese sat regally on top of the dumpster, staring at her.

However, she heard something more than just the sounds made from a feline creature. Wonderful. I turn fifteen and I get to go bonkers. I swear I heard him in my head and it actually made sense. I’m hallucinating, or so lit I’ve lost it.

“Darn it. I forgot you can’t understand me.” The cat seemed to grumble and jump off the dumpster, wandering down the alleyway.

Mia rubbed her forehead. “This just can’t be possible. Cats don’t speak English.”

The Siamese stopped and stared at her. “Meow, meep?”

Mia heard, “Do you understand me, kitten?”

She gasped, standing quickly and taking a step back only to trip on the stoop and fall back down on her rump. The cat moved cautiously closer to her. “Mew?” {How?}

Mia shrugged in answer to the question, but covered her mouth to stop herself from screaming at the same time. She had no clue what was going on, but if she wasn’t totally crazy, she was understanding what this cat said to her. Great. Now I’m Doctor Doolittle, she thought to herself. “Zoe’s right. I’ve gone off the deep end and am Cray-Cray with a capital C.”

The Siamese tilted his head, watching her with large, blue, unblinking eyes. “Meow, meow, mew, mew, meow, mew.” {If you really understand me, look behind the dumpster.}

“I’m insane. I’m really in looneyland. I’m talking to myself and being answered by a cat that I can understand. This is so wrong on so many levels.” Breathlessly, cautiously, Mia stood and skirted around the small cat as if he would attack, even though part of her was sure he wouldn’t. She didn’t know why she was following his instructions, she just knew she had to. Using all the strength she had, she pulled the heavy dumpster away from the brick wall to look behind it. On the ground was a partially bloodied glove. At first, she didn’t know why it mattered, but then she noticed there was something rotting and mushy on the outside. Whatever it was seemed stuck on the plastic glove, and they had handled it after they had cut themselves. Could it be the remnants of a mushroom? Mia was sure she was the only one who handled the mushrooms after they got back from the farmers’ market. Then she remembered she had Henry clean and dry them.

She went inside and called for the remaining officer who was standing in the kitchen like some sentinel. Grudgingly, he followed her after he told the rest to remain where they were. Once outside, Kevin looked around. “What’d’ya want to show me?”

“Behind the dumpster. I’m not sure if it’s anything, but to me it looks like one of our gloves with a touch of blood inside and what looks like a rotten mushroom outside. I thought it might be evidence.”

Giving her a doubting look, he peered behind the heavy metal container and spotted what she was referring to. “Did you touch it?”

“No.”

“Don’t. I’ll get an evidence bag from the car and be right back.” He quickly hastened down the alleyway towards the street.

Mia turned to the cat and stared. She felt like she was going insane. Or maybe she just imagined it all. Moments later, Officer Easton returned with a plastic bag marked evidence in bright red letters across it. Using the inside of the bag, he picked up the discarded glove, turned the bag back and sealed it. “Good work,” he mumbled, then headed back into the kitchen.

The cat moved over to sit beside Mia. Without a word, she stared at him in confusion.

“Meow, meow?” {You can really hear me?}

“Yes. I don’t know how, but I can. How can you even be talking to me so that I understand what you’re saying? I’m dreaming, right? I’ve turned fifteen and am now having a nervous breakdown. Or those cupcakes got me lit on something higher than chocolate.”

Eve walked out then. “Mia? Who are you talking to?” The older woman moved to sit next to her daughter.

“No one, Mom. Just flipping my lid is all.”

“What do you mean? And who is your cute little friend?”

Mia shrugged. “I don’t know. He’s been coming around since opening night and I have been giving him some scraps of food.” She didn’t want to tell her mom why she suddenly felt the need to see a shrink and get some happy pills. Maybe she was on some TV show, like Punk’d or Impractical Jokers, and wondered when the hidden cameras were going to pop up.

“Were you talking to him?”

Mia gave her a puzzled look. “Sure. Why not? I was talking to the cat.”

Eve tilted her head slightly as she looked the animal over. “And is he talking to you?”

“What?”

“Is the cat talking to you?” Eve was dead serious, but Mia felt like she entered the Twilight Zone.
