SAVING SAM
SAVING SAM by Simone Beaudelaire

Sam Wallace entered the Air Force as a spoiled, rich boy. Years later, he emerges a changed and troubled man. None of this matters to Amy, his oldest friend and staunchest supporter. Perhaps the weary soldier might finally find solace from his nightmares in the arms of the girl who has always loved him.

Kristal McKerrington (kristal_mckerrington) | 11 comments Hello,

Its my pleasure to stop by to introduce a novel to you that you might not have heard of. Its called "Waking Up His Wife". Its a very different kind of romance but at the same time addictive. Here is the one line I use to introduce the story to any reader I meet.

SHE WOKE UP HIS WIFE NOW ALL HELL IS BREAKING LOSE.

•? Blurb ?•

Twenty-One-Year-Old College Student Becca Stewart has lived her life by the rules and never stepped over any lines. For once in her life she wants to be the bad girl and enjoy what she’s missing out on. She’s had a crush on the star quarterback at her university and decides to tell him how she feels. He’s all in for a night of wild sex until she confesses to being a virgin. Telling her he’d love to give her what she wants if she wasn’t innocent, she decides to fight for him.

Hiring a gigolo isn’t something Becca ever thought she’d do, but having Bryce is worth it. Taking the small nest egg her grandmother left her she hires Colton Dillard and flies out to Las Vegas to get the experience she needs. Colton owns a company that pleasures women for profit, but he’s not exactly who he claims to be! Six foot four inches of pure sensuality, he’s every woman’s dream and just the man to teach her the ways of unadulterated sex.

One trip to Sin City will change Becca’s life forever. Being seduced by a stranger paid to give her all the pleasure she’s ever craved might do more than wake up her hidden passion. It’s one whirlwind ride of ecstasy, temptation, and discovering that sometimes you don’t know what you really want until it sweeps you off your feet!

ROMANCE RELEASE
♥«´¨`•°.Love Like Ours (Sugar Lake) by Melissa Foster..°•´¨`»♥
A hot male dancer. A cool and collected teacher. Their paths didn’t cross—they collided. They both have something to lose. Now it’s time they take a chance....

"Foster shakes up the heart with sunshine, rain and the whole shebang. When sweet and naughty collide it's sin city. Derek and Talia leave hearts with a warm, crazy feeling that looks alot like love." reviews Isha Coleman @ I Love Romance

"I will tell you what... Derek Grant is one of the best male characters that Melissa Foster has ever written. Usually male characters in romance must be all together, protective etc etc and in a way he is like this, but most of all Derek is an human being just doing the best he can in a difficult situation.
He is so human and so understanding." - reviews Romance as a First Language

"LOVE LIKE OURS is a story of family and friendship; struggle and admission; perception and acceptance. The premise is heart warming and intelligent; the characters are real, charismatic and lively; the romance is provocative and flirty. LOVE LIKE OURS is a character driven and clever story; a wonderfully sweet and compelling tale focusing on real issues and struggles of everyday people." - reviews The Reading Cafe

"A heart touching, passionate and sweet romance! Full of romance and passion this story will touch your heart. It is well written and full of love, humor, steamy heat and a little heartbreak (and not in the way that you think). It is captivating and kept my attention to the very end." - reviews Between the Coverz

Book Description
Talia Dalton lives her life on cruise control. Despite her successful career as a professor, she prefers protecting her broken heart to taking chances. She’s calm, cool, collected, and steady. Until the morning she takes her eyes off that familiar road and almost runs over the sexiest man she’s ever seen. It may not be the best way to start the day, but it might be the type of shake-up she needs.

Male dancer Derek Grant has goals, and nothing is going to get in the way of achieving them. As a graduate student and the sole caretaker of his ailing father, he hasn’t much time for relationships. Then Talia crashes into his life. Sweet, pretty—and so buttoned-up that he can’t wait to help her cut loose.

For Derek, falling in love was a beautiful accident waiting to happen. And it might be exactly what Talia needs—if she’s willing to let go of the past and embrace every surprise Derek has to offer.

"This book had me hooked from the first page all the way through to the end. I loved every moment of this very emotional, heart-wrenching, heart-stopping, panty-melting story!" - Reading Cafe

In WICKED WHISKEY LOVE…
After escaping abusive parents and, later, an abusive relationship, Sarah Beckley has spent a lifetime watching snakes shed their skin. With two small children to care for and another on the way, she’s finally found a home in Peaceful Harbor with the brother she hasn’t seen in more than a decade. She’s still searching for her sister, but life is good. If only she could stop thinking about the sinfully sexy doctor/biker who has taken to her children like a loving uncle—and to her like a hungry man.

Trust doesn’t come easily for Sarah, but Bones Whiskey is patient and protective, amazing with her children, and he looks at her like she is the only woman he could ever want–and more. With two little ones underfoot, Sarah expects him to move on quickly, yet with every tender kiss and each trying moment with the children, Bones surprises her. But will the fiercely loyal biker stick around when Sarah’s worst secret is revealed, or will he shed his skin, too?

Melissa Foster (melissa_foster) | 111 comments 💝 A delicious new visual experience for Sugar Lake romance lovers! 💝
Cast your eyes on FINDING MY GIRL, the captivating companion graphic image booklet to LOVE LIKE OURS, take the visual romance journey with Derek & Talia!
Please read the description carefully, as this is not a novel. 💕This booklet contains heartfelt messages and images from Derek to Talia that tell a story of their own, and it reads like a love letter.

💕FINDING MY GIRL is the companion booklet to the contemporary romance novel, LOVE LIKE OURS (Sugar Lake series).

*Please note that "Finding My Girl / Loving Talia" is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, "Love Like Ours" featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In "Love Like Ours" one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. "Finding My Girl / Loving Talia" is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel. As a bonus, I have included the first chapter of "Love Like Ours" in the back of the booklet.

I hope you enjoy this quick, visual adaptation of Derek and Talia's journey into coupledom. To read their full-length love story, please buy "Love Like Ours", a Sugar Lake novel (available in digital, paperback, and audio formats).

International superstar, Sean Lindsey, finds himself in a tangled web of lies, lust and love, in this scintillating conclusion to the Let Me In series from Jessica Marin.

I have loved Cora Gregory since the first time I laid eyes on her.
Problem is, I’m not the one she wants.
My best friend is.
She is pure poison, whose venom I can't seem to flush out of my system.

The only antidote comes in the form of Isla Jones, a longtime family friend, that I used to view as a little sister.
While I have been gone conquering Hollywood, little Izzy has grown up into a beautiful woman, with a sinful mouth and curves that ignite my desire for her.

A war has started between my head and my heart, confusing me as to who I should make mine.
The woman who has tormented my heart since I was fifteen?
Or the woman who has started to haunt my dreams?

One thing is undeniable.
I’m teetering on the edge of desire, determined not to fall...instead I’m going to jump.

This is book three of the Let Me In series, but all novels in the Let Me In series are stand alone novels with no cliffhangers and HEA endings.

"The tension and chemistry between these two is fire! They each needed a cold shower in this book - I NEEDED a cold shower too while I was devouring this book...it was everything I wanted and more!" - USA Today bestselling author Willow Winters

Being the princess of the Dark Knights motorcycle club doesn’t come with a white knight or a fairy-tale castle, and that’s okay, because Dixie Whiskey has never needed a man to slay her dragons or make her whole. Even so, after watching each of her brothers fall in love, she’d sure like a shot at her own happily ever after. But with the Dark Knights watching over her and the only man she’s ever wanted out of reach, she’s not holding her breath.

As the launch of Silver-Stone Cycles’ biggest line approaches, Jace Stone is left needing a favor from the one woman who holds the power to take him to his knees. He knows when it comes to sinfully gorgeous and sharp-tongued Dixie Whiskey, he must stay on his toes and keep his walls firmly in place. But Jace needs her for his business—and Jace Stone always gets what he wants.

When the tall, gruff, and darkly handsome biker presents an opportunity that any other woman might see as the chance of a lifetime, Dixie turns him down flat. But Jace is determined, and he pulls out all the stops—sending Dixie’s overprotective brothers up in arms. Rebellious Dixie takes a stand—going after the freedom, and the man, she’s always wanted.

One scorching kiss leads to an undeniable connection, but Jace isn’t looking to be tied down, and Dixie refuses to play second fiddle. Can two untamable hearts find forever love in each other’s arms?

When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.

Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?
