Falling for Sarah by Cate Beauman


Falling for Sarah
by Cate Beauman

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Widow Sarah Johnson struggled to pick up the pieces after her life was ripped apart. After two years of grieving, she's found contentment in her thriving business as photographer to Hollywood's A-list and in raising her angel-faced daughter, Kylee... until bodyguard and long-time friend Ethan Cooke changes everything with a searing moonlight kiss.

Sarah's world turns upside down as she struggles with her unexpected attraction to Ethan and the guilt of betraying her husband's memory. But when blue roses and disturbing notes start appearing on her doorstep, she has no choice but to lean on Ethan as he fights to save her from a stalker that won't stop until he has what he prizes most.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPT:



He headed to the pale pink and yellow bedroom, glancing back at the bathroom door wistfully. “Come on, Sarah. Hurry up,” he muttered as Kylee turned a deep pink the harder she cried. He stared at her mouthful of smooth, toothless gums and her tiny fists curling tight as they moved about. “Okay, kid. I guess we don’t have a choice here. Let’s get you changed.” He glanced around the cheerful room at the stuffed animals piled next to a rocking chair, zeroing in on the pine changing table and the stacks of diapers and wipes lying tidy on the shelf above.

He awkwardly lay Kylee down on the soft white pad, found a package of unopened diapers, and quickly scanned the directions. As Kylee continued to cry, he pulled a diaper off the shelf. “Look at these things. My hand’s bigger than this.” He located the sides with the tape and put it down next to her, just like the picture showed, then unbuttoned her sleeper and the white onesie secured at her crotch. “How many layers are you wearing?” Blowing out a breath, he pulled the diaper tape next. “Here goes nothing.” Easing the diaper away, he swore. “Jesus, this isn’t right. It’s black and yellow. I think we need to take you back to the hospital.” He focused on the browning raisin protruding from her stomach. “And look at that thing on your belly button. It didn’t look like that yesterday.” Completely flustered now, he yanked a wad of wipes from the bin and knocked the diaper cream to the floor.

Kylee’s short gasping cries shrilled louder.

The Trouble With Misbehaving by Victoria Hanlen


The Trouble with Misbehaving
by Victoria Hanlen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Historical Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Love, Betrayal and Redemption

Calista ‘CC’ Collins is used to being the talk of the town. With her scandalous past she’s learnt the hard way that a woman needs to be strong to get what she wants in a man’s world. And what she wants is the infamous Captain Beauford Tollier—roguish son of an earl, notorious blockade-runner and all-round knave of the seas.

However, Captain Beau is not one to be cajoled—he is done with the dangerous sea life and ready to follow the life of the straight and narrow. But with many powerful forces circling around him, Beau doesn’t stand a chance…



~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt One:

Clutching her elbow, he led her across the manicured lawn into a copse of trees.

What are you do—”

He swung them behind a tree and peered out. Whatever she wanted to talk about suddenly lost importance. The villains following him were the more immediate problem.

“Tell me—”

“Shhhh.” He pressed a finger to her lips.

Two men in top hats stepped off the gravel path and picked their way across the lawn.

Beau marched C.C. deeper into the grove around trees and shrubs. Then through an archway of fragrant vines to a fountain struggling to reflect hazy moonlight. They needed to stay quiet and hidden.

“Before you drag me any further into the bushes—”

Didn’t the woman know the meaning of shhhh? She would give away their hiding place if he didn’t do something quick. He pulled her to him and covered her mouth with his. Mint and vanilla filled his senses.

Her sweet, almost maidenly response surprised him. No, she probably wasn’t a tart. Just a hasty stolen kiss, yet he couldn’t help appreciate the tantalizing fit of her supple lips under his and how her body softened against him. His heart stammered and launched into a faster beat. Lifting his head, he gazed about her bewildered, upturned countenance, breathlessly poised for a man’s kisses. Hmm, not entirely a maiden either.

Perhaps another quick kiss would clarify matters?

The Silicon Beach Trilogy by Jill Blake

Falling for Heroes Box Set by Eryn LaPlant


Falling for Heroes Box Set
by Eryn LaPlant

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Falling for Shock

Oliver Hannel, England’s sexiest new star, has finally moved from the television screen to the silver screen, playing comic book hero The Shock in Hollywood’s upcoming blockbuster. While filming one summer night in the midwestern town of Greenfield, Indiana, Oliver finds himself witnessing a crime in progress. Will he embrace his inner superhero and save the day? Or will he remember he isn’t invincible and call for help?

Layla Brooks is a small town girl with a big spirited heart, especially when it comes to her twin sister, Lucy. She’ll rest at nothing to protect her from a casino mogul’s henchman bent on collecting a debt… even if that includes taking her sister’s punishment. But a strange suited man out from the shadows isn’t about to let that happen.

Oliver and Layla’s opposite worlds collide with a Bam! But are either of them ready for the lies, truth and lust that comes along with a relationship born of shock? Or will their love come and go as fast as a bolt of lightning?


Falling for Freedom

FBI Special Agent Cara Giosino is ballsy and relentless when it comes to justice. When she finds herself in London in furious pursuit of the notorious casino mogul and crime lord Feng Khai, she must give up her solo act and rely upon the fearless Interpol agent who caught Khai the first time.

Edward Hannel is not the man he once was. Tragedy has struck him down, leaving him a shell of his former self. He wants nothing to do with Interpol or the sexy Agent Giosino and her plan to take down the criminal who extorted his brother two years prior. That is until he discovers the madman’s vengeance is still focused on his family.

As they race to capture Khai and protect Edward’s family, neither Cara nor Edward realizes the depth to which this case will take them or how fast their partnership will bloom. And they certainly don’t expect to find such bliss in each other's arms when they finally give in to letting go and being free.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Excerpt:

Falling for Shock

CHAPTER
ONE

“CUT!” the director called.

Oliver breathed a sigh of relief. He was in dire need of finding a bathroom; the straps of his flying harness were cutting into his full bladder. On the street below, the crew wasted no time disassembling set dressings and props. The cameramen turned off their equipment and congratulated themselves on a good day, while the dolly grips trudged the cameras down aluminum tracks. A twinge tightened in his groin and Oliver shifted, trying to redistribute the pressure. It was no use.

“Come on guys,” he grumbled, but he was thirty-feet in the air, who could hear him?

The more hustle and bustle beneath his booted feet, the more he was convinced they’d forgotten their superhero…again. With his thumb and forefinger in his mouth, he blew a shrill whistle. “Hey! Will someone get me down?”

Dean Clemens, the movie director, lifted his head to the sky. “Sorry, pal! Mike, let Ollie down.”

“Thank you!” Oliver called out and the rigging creaked and groaned as he slowly descended.

Grand Prize and Take You Away Tour

Wanderlust by Bernadette Marie


Wanderlust
by Bernadette Marie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Gia Gallow has traveled the world. Her wanderlust landed her in Georgia where she has created a life for herself away from the petty differences of relatives and domineering ex-lovers. Having settled in America, she has a successful business and dear friends—and the attention of both Dane and Russell Walker. Due to her own family's dramas over dueling hearts, she might have to forget about her feelings for Dane to keep peace within the Walker family, but sometimes even running thousands of miles away can't keep a heart from going after what the heart wants. And Gia's heart wants Dane.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

Dane nearly had to run after his brother he was walking so fast. "Hey!" he yelled, but Russ kept going.

Finally, he caught up to him and with his hand on his shoulder, turned him around.

"What's up with you?"

Russ shrugged off his hand. "Don't let me bother you. You were busy. Go back and finish what
you were doing."

"What the hell are you so mad about?"

"Nothing," he said and hurried toward his truck. But Dane was right on his heels.

"Don't be an ass. What's wrong with you?"

"Remember that you don't live here, right? So waltzing in and taking the most eligible, most
beautiful woman off the market is a crappy thing to do."

"I beg your pardon?"

"You heard me. I live here. She lives here. We were getting along just fine before you came
along."

"Getting along? Are you telling me you're seeing Gia? Is that what you're saying?"

His brother looked away for a moment then back at him. "No."

"Oh, so you're just pissed I got to her first."

Russ stepped in until they were nearly chest to chest with each other. Dane didn't remember the
two inches Russ grew more than him, but now he saw them.


"Don't worry, though. I'll pick up the pieces when you break her heart and go back to your little
job."

He couldn't help it Dane shoved him against the truck. "I don't think she's a piece of property
that can be claimed with finder's keepers."

Russ shoved back and even raised his fist to him before they both realized that Gia was standing there watching with a hand over her mouth and the bag of gifts for their mother.

Russ lowered his hand, opened the door to the truck, and a moment later he sped away.

Dane scrubbed his hand over his face. "Damn it."

"You forgot these," she said holding the bag out to him.

He took the bag from her. "I'm sorry about that."


"You have to go after him. You have to fix this."

"Fix this? He will be fine. He's a grown man and he doesn't need"

She held up both her hands. "Fix it, Dane. You cannot let him go on like this. Especially when there is nothing to be upset about. The kisswellthe kiss was only"

He stepped in. "Don't tell me you're going to discredit that."

"I will not come between brothers."

"So you and him"

"No. We are just friends." "You said that to me too." "Do not turn this on me."

Out of frustration, he pulled his keys from his pocket. "I'll go after him and talk to him. Can I
see you tonight."

"Bachelorette party. You worry about Russell."

"This sucks," he groaned as he drug his fingers through his hair.

"Good bye, Dane," she said as she turned around and marched back to her store.

He watched her walk away and that amazing feeling that had been stirring inside of him when
he'd kissed her felt like lead now in his gut.

The Lord giving and his damn brother taketh away. Maybe it had been a mistake he thought as
he walked to his mother's car and opened the door. A few more days and he'd leave, returning to his miserable life, but without such distractions.

A Beautiful Sin by Terri E. Lane and A.M. Hargrove


Title: A Beautiful Sin
Author: A.M. Hargrove & Terri E. Laine
Cover Reveal Date: 05/19
Release Date: 06/23

EXCLUSIVE iBOOK 
PRE-ORDER 

iBooks: http://apple.co/1NuwCho


ABOUT THE BOOK

Since I was a boy, my desire was to marry the church. To give my vows and life over to God despite the corruption in my soul. 

I am a sinner, the embodiment of temptation, or so I’ve been told.

Yet, I’ve never touched, never kissed, never sought the company of another until her.

She is my weakness, my salvation, my downfall and my freedom. Our sins are bound tighter than fate.

My name is Canaan. I am an ordained Roman Catholic priest, forever and always. 

Her name is Haven. She may be my destiny, my destruction.

This is not a love story, but rather a confession of all my sins.

**Warning – A Beautiful Sin is a forbidden romance that blurs the lines between passion and religious faith. 

Please be warned, the subject matter may be offensive to some readers**

ABOUT THE AUTHORS


One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had super quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss, and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her husband and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was still beating).

Other than loving writing about romance, she loves chocolate, ice cream, and coffee and swears they should be added as part of the USDA food groups



I am the co-author of USA Today bestseller, Cruel and Beautiful. I write romance with heart and heat. Wife and mother of three, I’ve always been an avid reader. In my early years, my best friend and I would tell each other stories over the phone when we were bored. We called them our “soap operas” and generally revolved around whatever boy we liked at the time.


Over five years ago, I got this crazy idea to write a novel and try to publish it. And the rest is history. This journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. I look forward to many more memories to come.


I write under several pen names with over a dozen titles under my various names. I have a few more up my sleeves to be revealed soon.
