Jamie:

I drink.
I party.
I’ll let you guess what else I do the best and they never get any seconds with me. One and done.
The choices I make guarantee I’m never the one left behind.
I say and do what I want with no regrets; now I’m ordered to attend anger management to keep my job.
The problem? My failure of a one night stand is now running the group, but I’ve spent my time running and avoiding him at any cost.

Gavin:
My job, my house, my car…my life is exactly how I want it to be except in the relationship department. Jamie has a ridiculous one and done rule. I know one taste will never be enough. If she thinks this is over, she has never been more wrong.

I’m determined to prove to her that rules were made to be broken and that we are worth breaking them.

EXCERPT

A few minutes later, I’m walking toward Gavin’s bedroom. His door is open. I appreciate the open-door policy, and my anxiety lessens a little bit. A part of me is afraid to wake him up just because I’m awake and aggravated. I stand in the doorway going back and forth in my mind. As I turn away to go back to my room, Gavin faces me.

“Umm. I want…” I am feeling flustered by his gorgeous body. Gavin has the sheets down to his waist, leaving his beautiful torso exposed. His clearly defined chest and abdominal muscles have taken my breath away twice in one day.

Gavin could have asked me what I needed or wanted; instead he just did the next best thing. “Jamie, come on. You can sleep with me,” he said with a sleepy, dreamy smile.

I crawl into his bed as the thunder continues to pound outside the bedroom window. Gavin allows me to get myself into a comfortable posiiton with the pillows situated. I’m not sure if I should move to the edge of the bed, away from him. By no means do I want him to feel like he has to have me in his bed. Gavin immediately takes the choice from me by bringing the back of my body up against his hard chest. He circles his arms around me, and I feel his stubble on my neck. I love a good smelling man, and Gavin doesn’t disappoint. He has the just-got-out-of the-shower vibe going on, and I find it very distracting. I sink my body into his, grateful for the refuge it gives me.

When I climbed into his bed, I wasn’t expecting the intimacy it’s giving me. I lie in bed with Chris all the time after sex, and it doesn’t impact me either way. Lying in bed with Chris is like hanging out with your best friend with benefits. The focus is on the sex and the fun it gives us both. Orgasms are the end goal and nothing else. When it comes to sex, I like to think like a man. We both get what we want, and we go our separate ways. No expectations equals no problems. No one is tying me down. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem being tied up, just not tied down. I can come and go as I please, and fuck anyone else if they don’t like it.

My mind is racing all over the place. Intimacy and Jamie are on opposites ends of the spectrum. When Gavin holds me closer, the instinct to run is stronger than ever.

Jamie, everything is alright,” Gavin says softly in my ear. The anxiety is creeping up to a level that I am nowhere near being comfortable with.

“The storm is too much.” My brittle tone shows I’m on the verge of tears.

“The weather is temperamental here, it should pass shortly.” Gavin lightly kisses my temple. I pull myself into him even more, leaving no distance between us. He allows me this, and a feeling of calm takes over as I drift into a comfortable sleep.

Duke by Default * Alyssa Cole

Award-winning author Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series continues with a woman on a quest to be the heroine of her own story and the duke in shining armor she rescues along the way…

New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.

Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice—and his attraction to her—but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.

Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?

                                                      ********************************

         Book Excerpt :

What was he doing? With his apprentice? In the courtyard?

 

She was right to pull away from him.

 

“I’m sorry,” he said, yanking his hand back.

 

“You should be,” she said. “I have very sensitive skin.” Then she pressed up on her toes and kissed him.

 

The kiss was not what he’d imagined. Because, of course, he’d imagined kissing her, and in his mind she had been aggressive and take charge, pulling him down and wrapping her legs around him. But this kiss was hesitant, though she’d initiated it, soft and just a whisper of sensitive skin rubbing over sensitive skin, as if she was prepared to pull away and run off at any second.

 

Can’t be having that, can we?

 

Tav’s arms slipped around her waist and pulled her up flush against him.

Book Review : 

This is book 9 in this series and not a standalone book.  In book 9 it’s Coti’s ( Iron wolf enforcer) and his unclaimed mate NeNe ( human) . After tracking his unclaimed mate to the outskirt of town and saving her life is about to change. But before he can get his secrets out she’s taken and force ably changed to a bear .By rouge shifters in the area. But if that’s not enough going on there still secrets to come out and a mating to happen -but the Iron wolves are the club to handle anything that comes up. 

NeNe is a strong human and I felt bad for her when her friends cut her off  with there secrets. I am glad she got her pay back and changed into an alpha she bear. Coti has an interesting backstory and it answered why his mate is unclaimed. After his secrets came out  made a great protective  mate.And looking forward to see  how this plays out in future books. 

With all the characters this is not a standalone book as stated – but if a fan you will enjoy this next book and see what the Club is up too.    Lisa

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Yoohoo, your fairy dragon is here. Oh, now, who do I need to kill for hurting such a gorgeous girl?” Lula asked, going up to NeNe and rubbing her face over the bears head. “Ah, your fur is so soft, sweet one. Come, you and I will go and run through the fields and get right with the Goddess.”

Coti coughed, drawing the pink-haired female’s attention. “Um, Lula, a word please.”

Lula rolled her eyes, then whispered loudly into NeNe’s ear. “These alpha men are so bossy. Coming, sir.”

“Thank you for getting here so quickly. Ah, yeah, so she’s my mate. Can you tell me what’s going to happen?” Coti put his hands on his hips, the sense he was talking to a being who could wipe the ground with his hide had him deferring to her.

The tiny female leaned in. “Psst. Just so you know, I’d never use your carcass to wipe anything. And, she’s unclaimed as of right now. I sense two claims in her, which is confusing the dear bear. You and the beast who put the beast in her. She’s confused, so me and my dragon are gonna get her unconfused. We’ll be in touch. Toodles,” she waved, and then they disappeared.

Coti jerked backward, nearly falling on his ass. “Shit, she just took her. I didn’t get to say bye.”

Damien clapped him on the back. “Simmer down, she’s fine. Lula will take good care of her as will our Hearts Love. Jenna will make sure she’s well enough to come home, or—”

He glared at the man who spoke. “There is no or. NeNe is coming home to me.” His heart ached. His soul screamed worse than when he’d fought an entire pack of rogue wolves who tried to kill a farmer and his family in order to claim their land. The pack of seven grown shifter men, in their prime, had fought dirty, but he’d killed each and every one of them, sustaining injuries that nearly killed him. Yet, the pain from that battle combined with every other one, didn’t come close to what was coursing through him at the thought of never feeling NeNe’s skin under his hands. Never learning all the things that made her who and what she was.

Coti sheathed his swords with a thought, then dropped to his knees, unable to stand. “I thought nothing could kill me. I’ve tried, throughout the years you know? I’ve tested what could and couldn’t kill me. This, losing her, will kill me.” He would claw his own heart out. A man couldn’t live without his other half, the woman who was made just for him. He didn’t care if she was a bear, a sprite, or even a damn dragon. She was his.

Coti felt his two beings expand inside himself, the wolf and vampire, merging. He wasn’t like Damien and Lucas, born with the abilities of a shifter, but essentially a vampire. He was, or had been, three beings in one body, each one co-existing. Now, they merged, strengthening. His vampire half and his wolf rolled around inside his head, then forged to become the man.

“Damn, I think Grasshopper has become the teacher. Should we call dad and Ezra?” Damien asked, backing away from Coti.

Coti rolled his neck, his skin feeling too tight. “We’re on the same side, right now.”

“What the hell is going on?” Kellen growled, his claws out.

“Well, you see, this one here, is like a superhero being. Kind of like Deadpool of the vampire shifter world, I think. Only, he doesn’t look like an ugly avocado that nobody wants to have sex with. Ouch, fuck! Damien, I will beat your ass if you do that again.” Lucas pulled a knife out of his leg.

Kellen pointed the iron claws at Coti. “Alright, so you’ve got some shit to explain. However, we’re about to be converged on inside this mothereffen train car. The last thing I want is to rumble in a tin can with that,” he pointed at Coti. “I say we get the hell out of here and into an open field.”

Xan held his hand up. “I’d just like to point out, that you shouldn’t be pointing your freaky ass Freddy Krueger like knives for claws at someone and saying shit. Just saying.”

“Don’t kill him, yet. We might need him,” Turo implored.

“I can call Creed,” Lucas said.

“Who’s going to open this tin can up?” Bodhi asked, bouncing on his feet.

Coti raised his hands, but the top of the train car groaned, a hole forming within seconds as the upper half was ripped off.

“Yo, anybody home?” Creed asked, looking in through the top. “Ps. I got pants on, so you boys won’t get dick envy. No need to say thank you. Oh, and there’s like twenty freaky ass shifters heading this way.”

Coti jumped out, landing next to the large red-skinned son of Satan. “Thanks, Creed.”

Creed nodded. “No problem. We need to finish this quickly, my female wants me home, so we can watch chick flicks.”

Xan coughed, the sound of pussy made Coti wince. “Don’t kill him, he’s a good fighter.”

Kellen and the others jumped out of the train car, lining up to face the contingent of shifters coming toward them. “Damn, son, you sure do know how to piss off a man.”

Coti raised his head, sniffing. “Let’s show ‘em what fucking with the Iron Wolves will get them.”

He stood shoulder to shoulder with Damien on one side, Kellen on the other, knowing when the bodies settled, he’d have a lot of explaining to do. But first, his claws itched. “Should we offer them the chance to back off and live another day?”

Creed sighed. “Damn, there’s always one of you who has to be the fun ruiner. Hold please.”

The big man in his partial shift walked forward, eating up the space in long strides, his voice booming. “Stop, you vile beasts. If you want to live so you can go and hump your females another day, turn around, tuck your tails and run screaming to your mamas. Continue on your path now, and I’ll render you from gut to throat and feed your entrails to my pets.”

Xan put his hands up under his chin and sighed. “Goddess, I love him. He has such a way with words. If I were female, and not mated to a male as magnificent as myself, I’d totally look down and want him.”

Creed looked over his shoulder. “I knew it, you dirty bastard. You all looked down. There’s no shame in admitting it. First step in all programs is admittance. Damn, I feel them breathing. They’re continuing on the forward journey, which means they went with option B. Why do the idiots always go with option B? Do they think I have no beasts to feed their insides to?” He turned back around, swatting a couple of wolves away.

“Let’s do this,” Kellen roared.

I’m a full-time wife and mother of two who has loved to read and write since childhood. I survived cancer and decided I could do anything, setting personal goals then and there. Four years later, after meeting many wonderful writers who allowed me to beta read for them, whom I can now call friends, I decided to write a book. Several years later I’ve attained my first goal, becoming a published author.
I love to write and have all kinds of stories in my head waiting to be written. The best part about my new journey is that if I don’t like it, I can re-write it, unlike real life, so I always make sure there’s a happy ending.
I’m creating new worlds, and I hope you all enjoy them with me. I can guarantee you’ll always have a hero or two you’ll love, and a heroine you’ll want to be.

Nikki

I’m not a saint. Never claimed to be. I’ve played the game and scored my fair share—both on and off the field. This is why I should have known better than to fall for a hockey player. But I did. I fell fast and hard.

Now I’m left with the painful consequences, reminded every day of how reckless I had been by giving him my heart so easily—so willingly. Dalt broke me in the cruelest of ways, and because of him I’ll never be able to love again.

Dalt

Nikki changed me. She made me want to be a better man. My days playing off the field were over because she owned every little piece of my heart…until she left, leaving behind a gnawing ache where my heart used to be.

Now she’s back, and it’s painfully clear she hates me, ignoring me, pretending like I’m nobody to her. But that’s just too damn bad. I want answers. I want a goddamn explanation.

And most of all…I want her.

Read an Excerpt:

When you’re in college things are measured by semesters, not days or months. I fell in love fall semester of my freshman year. I was dumped spring semester of my sophomore year. I received the greatest blessing of my life in the fall of what should have been my junior year. It’s how I remember things, how I recall the seasons which changed my life forever. Now I’m back, trying to complete my junior fall semester more than a year later.

I shouldn’t be here tonight, though. I swore I was off hockey for the rest of my life. Sort of. Not the Bruins, or the Penguins, or the Stars. Okay, I swore I was off any hockey involving the Bernard University team, and one particular hockey whore.

I’m not a stupid girl. Not usually. I’ve worked hard to get to where I am and to keep checking off all the necessary boxes to get where I want to go. Get a scholarship to an Ivy League college. Check. Manage to keep my GPA over 3.5 to maintain said scholarship. Check. Become captain of the women’s soccer team and lead them to a championship win of the America East Conference during my first year as captain. Check. I’m not ashamed to admit I was doing pretty well at this thing called life, despite a few colossal obstacles along the way. Until about three years ago, when I checked off a few boxes which should not have been checked.

The special brand of stupid I began demonstrating back then and am continuing to exhibit at this very moment is spelled D-a-l-t-o-n W-a-l-k-e-r. When it comes to that irresistible specimen of whoredom, I become a mindless idiot.

About the Author:

As a lover of the northeast US, Elizabeth moved with her husband to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, she has finally found time to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing novels. The wild ride of writing books is one of the most difficult things she’s ever done in her life. But the opportunity to get her stories out of her head and down on paper and send them out into the world is also one of the most wonderful things she’s ever done. A dreamer at heart, romance is the genre she spends most of her time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. And having readers fall in love with her characters as much as she does is almost as exciting as giving birth (just not as painful!) When not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home, swimming, knitting, watching old classic movies and travelling.
