I Can Explain ~ New Release 

Title: I Can Explain

Series:  Awkward Love #2

Author: Missy Johnson

Genre: Romance

Release Date: February 15, 2018

Blurb

Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment,
wearing only my underwear?

Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.

I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym
instructor, especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed
me out onto the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door,
I jumped one apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for
a stranger to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside
the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase
Winston.

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and
risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After
a long, internal argument with myself, I choose

option two.

Here goes nothing…
**Awkward Love is a series of short, sexy, fun novels that can be read in ANY
order. Each book is COMPLETELY separate from the next, so you can read one, or

Excerpt

“Seriously, did you see the way she looked at me when she
told me not to stuff it up?” I huff, stalking back over to Peyton. “Like, God forbid
I put two sugars in his damn coffee instead of one. Hey, maybe I should slip
some laxatives in there?” I say with an evil grin. “I mean, he walks around
like he’s got something lodged up his ass, maybe all he needs is a good,
old-fashioned cleanout.”


“Lanna—”


“No. I don’t care how ridiculously sexy he is or how dreamy those blue eyes are
to stare into,” I say, cutting her off.


I was on a roll, and Peyton wasn’t going to stop me. I have two years’ worth of
frustration to vent, and it’s all coming out now, one way or another.


“He’s an asshole to everyone here but Jade, and I bet that’s only because she’s
sucking his cock. Not that I wouldn’t go there if he asked me to—”


“Lanna,” Peyton hisses, her eyes wide.


“Oh, come on, like you wouldn’t suck his cock too,” I retort, nodding knowingly
at her. “Hey, maybe we could tag team him.”


We’d had a lengthy discussion about this a few weeks ago over a bottle of
tequila, so I knew exactly what she wanted to do with that ten inches of pure
stiff muscle. And I thought I was the dirty one. I

chuckle to myself and turn around. My heart skips a beat when I spot Chase
leaning against Jade’s desk. He smirks at me and casually lifts one eyebrow.


Oh, god no.


My heart pounds as I wait for him to react. This can’t be happening. I cannot
believe I just said that. Well, I can believe it, because I say shit like that
every day, but not when he’s standing right behind me. I glare at Peyton, who
releases a snort and then flushes, bowing her head. Chase’s eyes don’t leave me
as I glance around the room, praying for an escape, but there isn’t one.


It’s like a scene from a really bad movie. With any luck, he’ll drag me outside
and throw me on the back of his bike and take me somewhere to have his way with
me. Or his office will do just fine.


“Is Jade here?” he asks, directing his question at me, his smooth, deep voice
making me shiver.


I shake my head, incapable of speaking. I think it’s worse that he’s ignoring
the obvious issue of my outburst. I’d almost prefer for him to say something
about it. Anything. Almost… He nods, and then walks over to the door,
stopping just as he reaches it. I brace myself as he turns his attention back
to me.


“Alana?” he asks.


I force myself to meet his steel blue eyes, wishing he didn’t find this so damn
amusing.


“Yes?” I whisper, feeling sick. God, I am so embarrassed.


 “While I appreciate your attentiveness to my health, I can assure you that
everything is functioning just as it should. Maybe you should focus more on
your job and less on things that don’t concern you?” he asks lightly. “Like who
is and isn’t sucking my cock.”


He walks out, briskly closing the door behind him.


I stumble over to my desk and slump down onto my chair, my eyes wide. I breathe
out, feeling dazed. My heart’s racing and I’m feeling a mixture of extreme
nausea and embarrassment over the whole situation. Every time I think about
what I just said, more or less to his face, I

want to throw up.


Peyton rushes over to me, both panicked and trying not to laugh, which under
any other circumstance would be a funny combination. I glare at her, which sets
her off.


“I’m so sorry,” she giggles, shaking her head. “I swear I’m not laughing at
you, but that just made my fucking day.”


“I’m glad I can be a source of amusement for you,” I grumble, my tone sour.


“At least he knows your name now.” she offers, her eyes twinkling.


I scowl at her. I think I preferred it when he didn’t.

Release Date: February 23, 2018

Blurb

I’m a good girl.

I live by a code
that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and
pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.

But Nikolai Kozlov
re-writes my destiny with five simple words.

You belong to me
now.

He’s Russian mafiya.
A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have
been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he
wants without a second thought.

And what he wanted
was me.

He thinks he
controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls
you have to watch out for. 

I’m a dangerous man.

I live by a code.
The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To
destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.

She’s a dancer. A
beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia
princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply
collateral.

It’s a shame to
destroy precious things.

But this is what bad
men do.

Excerpt

The first thing I always notice about a person is their
posture. I was raised to believe that good posture conveys good manners, as
well as respect for those around you. Nikolai carries his posture like a casual
‘f#ck you’ to everyone around him. There is no decorum in his leather jacket,
jeans, or his haphazardly laced motorcycle boots. Everything he wears is black,
but the small glimpse of skin beneath is a riot of colors. Tattoos cover every
inch of his exposed skin, including his throat.

I’m not sure which is more offensive- the ink or the faux
hawk atop his head. This is not the way you attend a ballet, nor is he the type
of man I expect my father to keep company with.

“Tanaka.” He reaches for my hand and kisses it in a way that
few men would ever dare to do in my father’s presence. “You dance beautifully.”

The words are unmistakably accented. Russian. And I’m
struggling to maintain my composure while making sense of this situation. My
father has always been protective of me. His own men know better than to speak
to me or look at me, but for this stranger, somehow, it’s okay. 

My manners, at least, are still intact, so I reply as I should. “You’ve seen me
dance?”


Nikolai flashes a boyish smile in contrast to the deepness
of his blue-green eyes. “I like to invest my time in the arts.”

Cover Reveal ~ Craft

Title: Craft

Series: The Gibson Boys #2

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Kari March Designs

Release Date: March 7, 2018

Blurb

They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends.
More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.

               

Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely
crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of
her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the
history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a
coincidence. All sixteen times.

Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin
too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and
seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the
best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and
he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.

These two don’t hate each other. They don’t
really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have
to start somewhere, right?

Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.

Will be available in Kindle Unlimited.

Eight days was all we
had.

How can my heart beat
so differently for a man I knew only for eight days?

He let me go. Sure, I
could have stuck around to fight for him.

I should have. Hell,
I wanted to.

Excerpt

I can’t say
he looks surprised that I’m standing motionless on his front porch. It’s funny,
in the ten days I had been here, I’ve never once used this entrance. My
expression is blank but his is
certainly not. With a small smile covering the scruff that has sprung up since
I left, he extends his hand for me to shake it. All I want to do is deck him,
but I can’t, not until I hear him out.

“I had a
feeling I would see you again,” he says, putting down his hand, as it’s
apparent I won’t be shaking it, not yet. Stepping out of the way, he motions me
in. “You better come on in. This may take a while, Jake,” he plainly states,
knowing what I need.

I look over
my right shoulder and see a fucking iguana. I had hoped the next time I was
here it would be with Sasha by my side. This time I need only one room, instead
of two like we had a few days ago. Shit, how my life has imploded in two days.

I have
never been in the front part of his house before and it’s still adorned with
Christmas decorations. Leading me to the back of the house that looks out to
the veranda and the pool I have fond memories of, I turn to him. “You wanted to
tell me, didn’t you, Mack?”

Shoving his
hands into the pockets of his faded blue jeans, he shrugs. “After the two of
you got back from the Grand Caymans last week, when I met you down at the pool,
I had it in my mind I would tell you. Then you told me you wanted more with
her. I couldn’t take a chance telling you. If you were on the cusp of revealing
your true feelings to her and what you wanted, it would ruin any future the two
of you had.”

“So, you
just let Sylvie manipulate you, with no regard for me?”

He looks
away and I know I’ve hit a cord. “What does she have on you, Mack?” Looking
away again, this is all I need to understand, she has used him. “What the fuck
could be more important than using an innocent woman like Sasha against me,
making me fall for her, just to do Sylvie’s bidding?” I’m now yelling and he
still has not faced me. He avoids looking at me eye to eye, man to man.

Out of
nowhere, the door opens and I hear the familiar voice of Mack’s better half,
“Me, Jake. She has me, that’s what she’s using against Mack.” Turning, I see
the long and lean figure of Mack’s wife, Anna, sobbing as she continues to
explain.

Ten days.

The Cayman Islands.

A holiday trip to forget the woman I lost.

Suddenly, I’m face to face with the sassiest
and hardest of women, who may be able to make me forget all I left behind.

And I want her!

This vacation is about moving on.

The saucy little ginger flaunting her perfect curvy
body in her next to nothing bikinis can be the distraction I need to forget it
all.

Her fire and brimstone attitude leaves me in
constant arousal.

And she proposes a holiday affair, one I gladly
accept knowing this is a hell of a risk to my already floundering heart.

But in the end, will I be able to say goodbye?

The Holiday Package Excerpt

Now, we sit
in silence as I continue to feel her observation fall upon me, over and over again,
while she doesn’t hide the fact she’s looking at me up and down like I am a
mannequin.

Finally,
being direct, I say, “Um, is there something I can help you with?”

Taking a
sip of my coffee, I’m expecting her to sidestep but no, I should understand her
candidness at this point, as she says, “I was just thinking what it would be
like to fuck you.” My coffee makes its way out of my mouth. It would get all
tens if this were a spitting contest.

“Oh, I
shocked you?” she asks, almost timidly but with the little cocky smirk that is
both behind her mouth, and moving up to those caramel-amber eyes of hers, she’s
not attempting to be shy, not in the least.

“So, tell
me,” I begin. “What have you come up with?” I ask.

Pursing her
lips together, Sasha finally answers. “Um, let me really imagine this in my
mind as I describe it. First, you have a long dick, like super long. It is
thick and will fill me up just fine.” Instantaneously, my super long dick she’s
describing aches. “Next, I would say you love pussy. However, mine is
incredibly delectable.” Fuck, I try not to moan. “Next, I imagine you holding
yourself up with one hand while you’re over me, licking my pussy, bringing me
to a really good orgasm, all while you jerk yourself off. And by the way, if I
had to guess, you’re really good with your tongue.”

I smile
because I’ve been told this on many occasions but at the same time, my balls
ache. She doesn’t say anything and I realize she’s finished. I respond, “I
think that is a possible scenario.”

Standing
up, she gives me a throaty little laugh. “Who knows, this may just be a long
ten days.” She winks then leaves me aching in pain when she retreats to her
bedroom.

Ah, fuck!
This woman might be the death of me.

A Shameless Little Con ~ New Release 

Title: A Shameless Little Con

Series: The Shameless Series #1

Author: Meli Raine

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: January 30, 2018

Blurb

I didn’t do
it.

I never
betrayed my friend.

Last year,
I was kidnapped along with presidential candidate’s daughter Lindsay Bosworth,
forced to help her assailants, my mother implicated in one of the biggest
political scandals in American history.

I’ve been
cleared of any wrongdoing, but that doesn’t matter. Once you’re tried by the media,
you’re guilty as sin. The truth doesn’t get the public’s attention.

But shame?
Shame sells.

And
everyone assumes you’re tainted.

Now I have
my own personal security team, courtesy of the United States government. Not
the one you learned about in civics class, though.

I’m being
tracked by the deep state. The shadow government. They’ve assigned Silas
Gentian to be with me twenty-four seven. He thinks he knows everything about me
– all of it bad — and he does.

On paper.

Like
everyone else, he assumes I’m a traitor. A backstabber. A betrayer. Someone who
helped a group of violent psychopaths, puppets of powerful men in Washington
who made me into a tool.

Yet I see
how he looks at me. True desire can’t be faked.

Or hidden.

And that
goes both ways.

He assumes
I’m trying to fool him.

And he
might be right.

But not for
the reasons he thinks.

A Shameless Little Con is the first book in the Shameless
trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

Excerpt

“Has it
ever occurred to you that maybe, just maybe, if you thought it through, there
might be a completely different angle on every part of this mess? That maybe
I’m telling the truth?” I taunt him. That’s how this feels–like nothing but a
nasty game. The push-pull of wanting him to treat me like a human being and
wanting to lash out and hurt him is infuriating, but it is better than sitting
here and taking his negativity like a passive little doormat.

“Of course
I have.”

“And you’ve
rejected that. Completely.”

“Yes.”

“Then
you’re really bad at your job, Silas,” I say, letting all the bitterness and
contempt come through my voice.

“You’ve
wounded me, Jane.” Turns out he can do contempt, too. Better than I can.

“I mean it.
Anyone whose job is to protect people can’t be such an absolutist. It makes you
weak. Gives other people an easy shot at you.”

“‘Other
people’? Do you mean people like you?”

“No. I mean
people like the ones who attacked Lindsay.”

“Right.
People like you.”

I shake my
head slowly, the waves of panic flowing through me, giving in to them. Letting
them come because what choice do I have?

And guess
what?

You can
feel all of that panic, let the anxiety overwhelm you, nearly black out from
the incongruity of being shamed, driving toward an unknown destination where
you have no control–

–and still
stand up for yourself.

“I have
nothing left to lose, Silas. My mom is dead, my reputation’s beyond
salvageable, I don’t have a job or a place to live, and everywhere I go
someone’s trying to kill me. Even my online world is nothing but garbage and
threats from shitlords. So, as a simple thought exercise, can you try? You’re
protecting me. Someone assigned you to me. Give me the courtesy of doing your
job completely. If I’m stuck with you–and I know I am–I, at least, want you to
do your best.”

BIG ROCK Excerpt:

I do my best work in the bedroom. This is completely my domain. So it should be no big deal that she asked me to wait here. But something about being in Charlotte’s bedroom is wigging me out.

            Mostly because there’s nearby nudity transpiring mere feet away.

            She’s taking a shower, and no matter how you slice them, New York apartments are approximately thimble size. Let me spell this out—wet, naked, hot woman in a ten-foot radius.

            Got it? Okay. Moving on.

            I pick up a picture frame on her sky blue bureau of the dog her parents have. A fluffy brown summa dog—some of this, some of that. I’m going to focus on this mutt. Zero in on him. Look at his tail. Check out his ears. Yup, this picture is doing the trick. It is helping me not to linger on the naked woman and how well she kisses.

            Or how much I liked it.

            Why the fuck did I like it so much?

            Of course you liked it, idiot. A pretty woman kisses you, and you’re straight—you’d be stupid not to like it. End of story. Doesn’t mean anything. Stop analyzing.

            Especially since she just turned off the shower.

            Maybe she forgot a towel. Maybe she’ll open the door a crack, and ask me to grab one for her.        

            I smack my forehead. Get it together, Holiday.

            I set down the picture, draw a deep inhale and straighten my shoulders. The door creaks open. She steps out of the bathroom wearing only a white fluffy towel wrapped above her breasts.           

            “You might be wondering why I asked you to wait in my bedroom instead of the living room,” she says, in the most matter-of-fact tone.

            I have no clue how she can be talking like we’re having a business transaction when droplets of water slide down her bare legs. But I’m a strong man. I can handle this. I’m not tempted at all by my best friend. Though my dick begs to differ, the traitorous prick.

            “The thought crossed my mind,” I say, as I lean against the bureau, striking a casual pose.

            “Because if you’re my fiancé, you need to be comfortable with me being naked,” she says with a crisp nod.

            Shit, she’s going to do it. She’s going to drop the towel. She’s going to make us practice fucking. I am the luckiest man on the face of the earth.

            Wait. No. I can’t fuck my best friend. I absolutely, positively, can’t screw Charlotte. Even if she tosses the towel on the floor and begs me to.

            I lace my fingers together behind my back, linking these twitchy hands.

            “Okay, so you’re getting naked,” I say, doing my best to imitate her cool-as-a-cucumber tone that is throwing me off big time.

            “No. It’s the idea of me naked,” she corrects.

            I give her a pointed look. “Seems to me it’s both the idea and the reality.”

            “Fine, fine. They’re one and the same, and it’s part of the debrief.”         

            “Is this the exam portion?”

            She walks past me, her arm brushing against mine before she yanks open the top drawer of the bureau. “Yes. This is the practical portion.”

            “And this is because you somehow think we’re going to be required to be naked together in front of Mr. Offerman in order to pull this off? This isn’t like some feats-of-strength style fake engagement where we have to pass certain skill sets in an obstacle course. You know that, right?”

            She nods, as she hunts around in the drawer. “I’m aware of that. I see this as more like the Newlywed game.”

            “And in this version of the game we’re quizzed on how I get used to the idea of you naked and vice versa?”

            Her breath hitches when I say that—vice versa.

            I don’t know what to make of that small gasp, or if it means something about the idea of me au naturel.

            She spins around, and holds up two pairs of panties, one in each hand. “Quick. Do you prefer it when your fiancée wears the black lace thong?” She waggles a scrap of silky-looking fabric that is so hot my face might be engulfed in flames right now because Charlotte owns that? “Or do you prefer her in the white side-string bikini?” She waves the white pair before my eyes, and all I can see is a tiny triangular patch of fabric that’s the slightest bit see-through.

            Forget the flames. I am a fucking inferno right now knowing she owns this too. White panties that reveal pretty much everything.
