BLURB

The rules of the contest were simple.
Design a new logo for Morgan Financial Holdings, wow the judges with my mad skills, and bam. I get the job.
Easy, right?
Nope.
I didn’t account for the annoyingly gorgeous Easton Roman, strolling late into orientation like he’s God’s gift to women.
Puh-lease.
Acting as if already crowned champion, the jerk had the nerve to flirt with me!
<insert multiple expletives>
He may have everyone fooled, but I see him for exactly what he is.
Temptation.
Easton can do whatever he wants to steer me from my eventual victory, but two can play at that game. If I have to flirt back, I will. If he wants to kiss me, bring it on.
At some point in the game, it became real; our connection grew.
I thought when the judges selected the winner, it would end us. But what really shattered our relationship was something neither of us saw coming.

Insatiable Lover is a contemporary enemies to lovers romance inspired by Stuck-Up Suit.

Review Blitz for Not Pretending Anymore by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward




Title: Not Pretending Anymore
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021


BLURB

Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion...just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Review by Gia

Not Pretending Anymore is a sweet, slow-burn story. Molly is a sweet nice girl. Molly's looking for a roommate. She wants a female roommate but ends up sexy Declan. Declan is a sweet charming guy and definitely swoon-worthy. Both Molly and Declan have crushes and decide to pretend they are a couple to get their crushes jealous.  That works but also backfires when they have feelings for each other. This one went slow and built up but was a good read.

4 1/2 stars!!

Sometimes you have to break to become the person you're meant to be.

 
CAP:

I'm a bastard by birth.
Heartless by choice.

I have my family-by-choice. I don't need more.
Until she crept in, sank in deep, latched on, and stayed.
She's as broken as the day is long.

CHER:
I'm over men.
Destruction and pain are all they bring.
Been there. Done that. Check please.
Yet there is one--so many years later--who looks at me like I'm a goddess.
Who makes me feel like I have something to offer, that I'm exactly who he wants.
 
Can two lonely souls come together to discover the broken have more pieces to love, or will they pass on finding their forever love?

EXCERPT

Given half the chance, I could imagine what my alternate life might have been like here. I might have gone to college, maybe become a lawyer, settling down and marrying a decent man, and having children.
The American dream, right?
But it was too late.
I had lived a nightmare.
My eyes landed on the budding flowers in the small garden. My gaze narrowed on the delicate red roses that were starting to bloom. The roses and their light green stems were still wet from the earlier showers that morning. The fragrance of their aroma was inviting me to come closer. I swallowed with difficulty, and my mind drifted to places I no longer was in. My hands were itching to pluck out a rose, but I forced myself to stay still. There would be no more roses for me, and I might as well start collecting thorns now.

Release Blitz for The Love Interest by Kayley Loring




Title: The Love Interest
Author: Kayley Loring
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 16, 2021


BLURB

Dear Fiona,

I hope this letter finds you well—and by well, I mean significantly less infuriated than you were yesterday. I’ve wanted to continue our conversation from the night we met, but there are so many things I can’t say or do, now that I’m your professor.

As an anonymous letter writer, I can give you some idea of what I have planned for us, once the year is over. As an author, I can share my work in progress with you. Not for you to critique but to show you how much you mean to me.

When you’re done reading this page, destroy it—and then write me back. Don’t sign the letter. Don’t put a return address on the envelope. Mail it from a random mailbox.

Yours in problem solving,
Me

P.S. I still think you’re wasting your talent on that historical romance novel.
P.P.S. I really wanted to push you up against the door and kiss your beautiful, angry face. I will. One day.


Dear Emmett,

Your handwriting is almost as terrible as your mood swings, and it would have been my instinct to destroy that letter even if you hadn’t ordered me to.

If you show me your work in progress, I will critique it.

I am currently still too infuriated to write about all the other feelings I have for you.

Expect another letter soon.

Your problem and your solution,
Me

P.S. I still think an overpaid, overrated, overly handsome bestselling author of thrillers has no business teaching creative writing at a prestigious New York university.
P.P.S. To my great horror, I really wanted you to push me up against that door and kiss my angry face too. I understand now that your appalling way of treating me in class has been overcompensation, but I don’t forgive you for it. I’ll kiss you again anyway. One day.

In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts.

EXCERPT

Cecelia
I was out of breath and my chest was heaving. Despite the freezing cold water, my entire body felt hot.
He stood there for a minute staring at me with an almost feral expression. His Binnacle Brewing T-shirt clung to the muscles in his chest and his damp hair fell across his forehead. He looked muscular and intimidating and oh so hot. In other circumstances I would be scared by the giant wall of sexy man looking at me like I was his next meal. But my entire body was on high alert. I was hot, sweaty, and turned on. I could feel my nipples standing at attention and I had to squeeze my thighs together to stop the full body shiver running through my core. We stood there, staring, chests heaving, for what felt like an hour but was probably more like two minutes.
He dropped the hose on the ground. Next thing I knew he stalked over to me, grabbed me by the waist, and pulled me into his hard, wet chest. His mouth descended on mine, and I was completely lost to the sensation of his full, tender lips. It was messy and frantic and I held onto him for dear life. He smelled like hops and pine trees. Our hands were everywhere. He was gripping my ass as I ran my fingers through his hair. Our mouths and tongues danced desperately as if we had waited years for this moment.
This was more than a kiss. This was an epic sensory experience. His lips, his hands, his hard muscular chest. Oh my God, his intoxicating manly smell. I had never been kissed like this in my life, and it was melting my brain. His hands found my hips and picked me up as if I weighed nothing. I instinctively wrapped my legs around his waist without breaking the kiss. Suddenly I was aware of something very large and hard nudging at my core. Instead of breaking away, it made me want more.
My entire body throbbed for him. I wanted to take him home and lick every inch of his body, including what felt like a very impressive erection. I moaned into his mouth as his hand found my breast. He curled a fist into my hair and tugged my hair back, exposing my neck to his frenzied lust. I moaned when he found my sweet spot and I longed for friction, for nudity, for more. Under normal circumstances I would be freaking out that I was doing something wrong or wondering if this guy actually liked me. But somehow I didn’t want to stop or analyze. In that moment, I was overwhelmed by Liam Quinn.

BLURB

The dark and deadly Vandar raider who was exiled to our planet refuses to help me. Not without a price.

Corvak is nothing like the men on my planet. He's violent and brooding and wants nothing to do with a human female like me. But he's the only one who knows how to fight. And I refuse to be helpless when the empire comes after our planet--and it's only a matter of time until they do.

I've heard the rumors about the Vandar. They travel in invisible hordes of terrifying warbirds and their menacing raiders terrorize the empire and any ship that gets in their way. I don't care. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to become a warrior, even if that means convincing Corvak that I'm worthy of his attention. Even if it means sneaking into his quarters and begging.

But am I willing to take the deal he finally offers me? He wants off the planet that I so desperately want to save. If he teaches me how to be a warrior, I have to help him escape. As much as the dominant Vandar gets under my skin, will I be able to let him go?

Punished is a full-length sci-fi romance novel with a HEA and no cheating. It features steamy scenes on an alien planet, alien space battles, and some serious enemies-to-lovers, forbidden love, secret relationship heat.

EXCERPT

Corvak

I peered down at the female standing in front of me with her arms folded over her chest and her eyes flashing. It took all my restraint not to curl my tail around her again and feel the warmth of her body. “What kind of proposal? I have no intention of taking you as a mate.”
She scowled at me. “Don’t flatter yourself, tough guy.”
I almost laughed. I was used to people cowering from me, but this female did not seem scared of me at all. Was I losing my touch? I growled, curling my lip in an attempt to intimidate her. “Do I need to remind you that you have no leverage with me, female?”
She lifted her chin. “Sure I do, you just don’t know it yet.”
I raked a hand through my hair. This female was nothing but an irritation I didn’t need and a distraction I could not afford. Although I now understood the attraction one could feel towards human females, they were still nothing but trouble for a Vandar. “What is your proposal? Tell me, before I grow weary and throw you out the door.”
Her gaze flickered to the arched door then back to me. “Fine. My proposal is that you teach me how to fight.” She held up a hand before I could interrupt. “Privately.”
I stared at her. “You mean secretly.”
“Well, yeah. Obviously, no one could know.”
Now that we were no longer in the dim hallway and stood in my small living area, my gaze was drawn to her hair. It was still pulled up into a tight knot on her head, but it was the most fascinating shade of golden brown, with strands of red and gold glinting in the flickering light.
“Well?” Her sharp question made me pull my gaze away from her hair and my urge to unknot it and watch it fall loose.
I mimicked her crossed arms with my own. I had no intention of granting her proposal, but I was curious to hear her reasoning. “How exactly do you envision I could train you secretly? My quarters aren’t large enough, and I doubt yours are either.”
She shook her head. “We’d have to do it outside the village and at night.”
“At night?” Now I was intrigued. “You wish us to sneak away from the village at night? Don’t you think someone will notice us creeping around?”
She gave me a pointed look. “We wouldn’t leave the village together obviously. We’d have to time it right, but most villagers are in their dwellings after the evening meal. I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but this planet is pretty dull, especially after the suns go down. Most families play games in their dwellings and occasionally there’s a performance in the amphitheater, but people aren’t usually out after dark.”
I returned her look. “And your sister and father? Won’t they notice you missing at night? You don’t play games?”
Her expression darkened. “We aren’t one of those types of families. My father won’t notice, and my sister will cover for me.”
“You’ve thought this through.” I leaned forward so that she had to tip her head back to continue to meet my gaze. “But you haven’t told me yet what’s in it for me.”
She opened and closed her mouth. “What do you mean?”
“You’ve told me why this is important for you and how you think the logistics can work, even though I’m not sure if you’ve thought through every contingency, but you’ve yet to explain why I’d give up my evenings and risk my good standing in the community to sneak around with you.”
Color suffused her cheeks. “You wouldn’t be sneaking around with me. You’d be teaching me and helping the planet defend itself.”
I shrugged one shoulder, enjoying watching her outrage grow. “I’m already doing that during my training during the day. It’s a pretty big ask to want me to conduct another entire training session for one person.”
Her hazel eyes narrowed. “I didn’t know it would be too taxing for a big, tough Vandar like you but if you don’t have the stamina…”
I huffed out a laugh, and let my gaze drift down her body. “You are worried about my stamina, female?”
She swallowed and the pink in her cheeks became blotchy patches of red. “No. I don’t care anything about your stamina. I thought you might want to teach me out of the goodness of your heart.”
“I’m an exiled Vandar battle chief,” I growled. “There is no goodness in my heart.”
“I don’t believe that.” Her voice trembled as she spoke.
“Believe what you wish, female.” I wrapped my tail around the back of her legs. “But do so at your own risk.”
