Love can be such a “coulda, woulda, shoulda” song sometimes… Lucia Mpobo-Riddell could have been a dancer like the rest of women of her family but instead she chose music. Marcus Grant could have been a doctor like the rest of his family but instead he chose music. She also could have not fallen for Marcus on her birthday but she did. And Marcus, he could have told Lucia the truth about his real reason for being in Toronto that night, but he didn’t. Now they have to deal with big reveals and consequences: Marcus almost stealing her job and being force to work on an album together. Marcus, because he couldn’t swallow his pride, leaves Toronto and goes home to London. Lucia, because she just couldn’t give up on her first amazing opportunity to produce a whole album. And to complicate the situation further, the band they’re working for is not the easiest one. Mary Gillis, Marcus’ on and off flame, still has a hold on him. Greg McMullen, Lucia’s close friend and former dance partner is back in town and has been in love with her for years. Then there’s Marcus and Lucia, in the middle of their own a professional and personal tug-of- war with each over and the rest of the world. But maybe things could still work out… All things considered, this could have been one heck of a love song!

Marcus, Greg and Lucia are back in the second part of their journey to their perfect love song... will they finally find it? This would have been their perfect love song… It has been two years since Lucia Mpobo-Riddell has made her choice between the two men in her life. She and her beloved would have been perfectly happy if it wasn’t for… the constant distractions from her past, her sister Noor’s complicated life, her own doubts and fears. Maybe there wasn’t such a thing as perfection and this was a lesson that Lucia was going to learn the hard way. Greg McMullen and Marcus Grant’s lives had been affected by Lucia’s choice that day in Glasgow two years ago. Since then one had been fighting to keep her when the other had been relentlessly trying to get her back. It soon became apparent to them that she wasn’t the Lucia they met and fell in love with anymore. Her life and priorities had completely shifted. To even consider keeping her or just getting her back, they would have to accept it or they would have to let her go. But would they ever be able to do either?

  Bird Of Prey  Teaser II    


18+ adult content This was supposed to be an easy case... Sémya Slotin had spent the last three years living in London with her best friend Polliannah Koch staying away from solving cases. After Hawaii, she was taking a break from puzzles, cases and mysteries that could potentially get her killed. Instead, she had been doing her second and third favorite things, drinking and selling expensive vintage wines and having earth-shattering sex with the mysterious, sexy, beautiful but ever so secretive Josh Heinz. Life in London was good....until her funds ran out. Too much wine drinking, not enough wine selling! When fashion designer and adoptive mother, Annika Slotin, summoned her back to Paris to hire her for what Sémya considered being the easiest case of her amateur sleuth career, all she could think of and see was money signs and a well-deserved Cuban holiday once it was solved. What Sémya didn't see was her stumbling on the fresh corpse of supermodel Johanna Cartier. She didn't think that male model turned fashion designer Julian Marais-Caldwin, who also happened to be Sémya's ex, would be suspected of brutally murdering her. Johanna was his girlfriend, his muse and he loved her. Sémya didn't see the dead bodies piling up or the conspiracy theories. Sémya was a little rusty. But then again, it was supposed to be an easy case and she was going to solve it. One vintage wine at a time... Sémya Slotin was officially back in business!

Sunday again and that means it's #SexySnippets time #shifter #bestseller @Sirenbookstrand

Sexy Snippets are seven sexy sentences taken from any work, published or WIP, join 

Today's sexy snippet comes from Siren Publishing M/F bestseller new release, 'Cafe in the Park.'

The night air brushed her sensitive nipples. A smell of spruce wafted in on the warm breeze from the huge tree nearby. She leaned back in Chris’s arms as he clasped her around the waist. His cock was hard against her soft ass. She pressed back on him. The idea she could bend, hold the balcony rail, and have him fuck her there, hard, fast, and hot, from behind, sent tremors down her lower stomach.

She turned her face for a kiss.

Saturday snippet #erotic romance from The Black Lion on .99 cents sale right now

When Melissa fleetingly meets Sascha in a nightclub, she hopes he will approach her.
Sascha has secrets and it’s a long time since there was a woman in his life.
Unknown to both of them someone watches jealously.
Will this jealousy stop the budding romance between two people who both have something to hide?
An erotic, paranormal romance, full of surprises.
Read the snippet:
She whispered. “It’s all okay. Can’t you tell from my kisses? I feel the same. When you stood in my way, in the club, I wanted to talk to you, but I didn’t know how. You’re so attractive. I felt shy. I saw your desire then, in your eyes. Not many men look at me like that. I’m glad you took me from the club. I’m not afraid, now I know what you are. Not now I’m here with you in your arms.” She kissed him between phrases as she stroked his cock, freed now to the night air.
Sascha growled long and low as he took her kisses, like gifts, on his lips, his cheek, his jaw. Very soon, he would have to fuck her. He could barely stop himself from taking her to the surface of the roof and stripping her naked. He wanted more for her than that. Who knows if someone will appear on this roof at any time?
“I can’t imagine what fool men you must have encountered that they don’t want you, Melissa. You’re driving me crazy. I want you desperately, but not here. Can I take you home or will you come home with me?” His voice little more than a whisper, he nuzzled her neck, grazed her lips with his teeth as he gasped out the words. The scent of her blood rushed in his head, but his fangs didn’t lengthen, he didn’t want to drink. He pushed the thought away. Just as he’d pushed away her words, ‘know what you are.’

Author Beverly Ovalle drops by the blog with her #coverreveal for Triple D Dude Ranch #western #eroticromance

Triple D Dude Ranch

Coming October 4 to Secret Cravings Publishing

One look ignites a smolder between Dan and Blaire, one touch sparks a wildfire that burns out of control, hotter than the Texas sun.

Blaire had gotten a freelance assignment, sending her from Chicago back home to Texas. She was taking pictures of a dude ranch for the Tribune, an up and coming vacation spot for the city slicker. Blaire couldn’t help the wildfire of desire that ran through her at the uninhibited cowboy she finds in the lens of her camera.
Dan remade his ranch, making it a go to vacation spot being featured in the vacation section in a Chicago newspaper. Expecting a freelance photographer, Dan couldn’t believe the hot and sexy urban cowgirl that arrived, camera in hand.
Texas summer is hot as hell. Not even the heat can stop the fire that blazes instantly between Blaire and Dan. Just one look, one touch, Blaire was the spark and Dan was the tinder that fed the flames, sparking a conflagration that nothing can stop.
