THIS WEEK’S BEST SELLING AUTHOR…

SHANNON MAYER!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was born into a family of Star Wars nuts. I have a lot of siblings (somewhere I lost count but I think there was more than could be numbered on one hand) and being one of the young padawans I was subjected to Star Wars marathons, on a regular basis. If you’ve read any of my books you’ll see there is often a reference to said movies as a small homage to my upbringing. May the force be with you and all that jazz.

I started writing when I realized I didn’t want to grow up not believing in magic, or not believing in creatures everyone else said didn’t exist. That being said, I have never seen a fairy, unicorn or dragon. I had a neighbour who swore they fed the leprechauns in their garden, but I never caught the little buggers no matter how long I lay in wait. (And consequently had to help the neighbours plant new flowers to replace those I killed waiting for the leprechauns to show their faces.)

Along the way, I found my husband who is the rock that keeps me from floating away into my dreams, and we have a little boy who is the centre of our world. Living on a farm keeps us busy (as if the writing wasn’t enough) and I have more than my share of stories about wrestling with cows, helping birth calves and ending up in the creek during the process, falling in the mud (we’ll call it mud but we all know that on a farm, mud is rarely mud) and chasing escaped livestock in the hopes the four legged convicts don’t make it to the highway.

I’ve taken up archery, and the goal is to move into horseback archery in time (you know, when I can hit the target on a consistent basis) and when no one is looking, I love to bake (this doesn’t happen often as it’s hard to keep the sweet treats in stock with two boys in the house.)

As to what’s coming next for me? More stories (since those never stop inside my head, I might as well share them with all of you!) and more adventures. Pretty much, when the fancy strikes, I’ll jump on it. Leap before you look I’m sure that motto was created for me.

Or was that . . . think big and dream bigger, ready, set, pull the trigger . . . yeah. That one is a good one too. But only if you have a gun. And are hunting elephants. Which is not cool because of so many reasons. Let’s stick with the first one with an addendum.

Leap before you look and let your dreams carry you on their wings. And that, my friends, is me in a nutshell.

Drunk Dial * Coming Soon

We are excited to bring you the upcoming standalone from New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Penelope Ward.

DRUNK DIAL will release on AUGUST 21!

 

 

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Vadim Ivanov
Cover Photography: Kevin Roldan

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

Title:
HEARTS AT SEASIDE (Sweet with Heat:
Seaside Summers Book 3)

Author: Addison Cole

Publisher: World Literary Press

Pages: 280

Genre: Sweet with Heat Romance

 

Sweet with
Heat:
Seaside Summers features
a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their
Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so
easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends! 
Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New
York Times
 bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance
novel Seaside Hearts.
 The
stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect
between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh
language. 

In HEARTS at

SEASIDE 

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and
confident–except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier,
strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to
get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar
lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter–and is ready to explore other men. 
As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic
father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and
has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend
Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally
entertains and confuses him. 

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction
worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the
desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he
appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can
Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux–the most alpha male she’s ever seen–or
will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had
without tearing apart his family?

There should
be an unwritten rule about drooling over construction workers, but Jenna Ward
was sure glad there wasn’t. She sat on the porch of the Bookstore Restaurant,
soaking up the deliciousness of the three bronzed males clad in nothing more
than jeans and glistening muscles that flexed and bulged like an offering to
the gods as they forced thick, sticky tar into submission. Their jeans hung low
on strong hips, gripping their powerful thighs like second skins and ending in
scuffed and tarred work boots. What red-blooded woman didn’t get worked up over
a gorgeous shirtless man in work boots?
Heaven help
her, because she needed this distraction to take away her desire for Peter
Lacroux, which went hand in hand with summers on the
Cape and consumed
her in the nine months they were apart. She zeroed in on one particularly
handsome blond construction worker. His hair was nearly white, his jaw square
and manly. She wanted to march right out to the middle of the road that split
the earth between the restaurant and the beach and be manhandled into
submission. Right there on the tar. Wrestled and groped until all thoughts of
Pete evaporated.
“Wipe the
drool from your chin, chica.” Amy Maples handed Jenna a margarita
and, pointedly, a fresh napkin, as she settled into the chair across from her.
“Goodness, woman. What’s up with you this summer? I swear you’re in heat. I can
practically smell your pheromones from over here.”
Jenna gulped
her drink and righted her red bikini top, which was trying its hardest to relieve
itself of her enormous breasts. Even her bikini top was ready for a man.
real man. A man who craved her as much as she craved him.
Jenna
reluctantly turned away from
Testosterone
Road
and faced her best friends. The women she
had spent her summers with here in
Wellfleet, Massachusetts, for as long
as she could remember and the women she hoped would help her through her most
important summer ever.

Synopsis:

For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.

Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.

For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.

As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

The Hunting Grounds Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

Vic thought he was prepared. He wasn’t the type of man to spend too much effort worrying about what could possibly happen—it made more sense to deal with what did happen. He knew seeing Maggie again after all this time would be a shock, but they’d been partners for twelve months at best. There was no reason to think he couldn’t roll with this development the same way he rolled with every other.

Then he arrived at Goat Haunt ranger station. He followed Wyatt out of the chopper, using a hand to shield his face from the wind the blades created. The ranger station was set against Upper Waterton Lake, and with the mountains in the background, it could have been a scene out of a painting.

All of that paled in comparison to Maggie.

She looked good. Better than good. During her time as his partner, she’d been too thin, running on too little sleep and too much coffee, and her health had suffered as a result. Obviously being a park ranger agreed with her. The unfortunate uniform did nothing to hide how her curves had filled out, her body honed from the many hours of hauling around a pack similar to the one he now carried. Her hair was longer, too, the dark locks pulled back into a braid that hit just past her shoulders.

But she was still Maggie.

Even in the bright sunlight, he could see the way her dark eyes flashed as her shock wore off. And her nose, the only feature of hers that could never be termed pretty, was the same—long and slightly crooked from where it’d been broken in the FBI academy.

Maggie shook off her paralysis faster than he did. She frowned. “What are you doing here, Vic?”

“Agent Sutherland’s here for the murder.” Wyatt stepped forward, breaking what remained of the spell cast between them.

Rationally, Vic knew it had lasted seconds at most, but it felt like a small eternity. He struggled to put the past in the appropriate box to deal with when they weren’t on a case. When we aren’t on a case, I’ll leave . . . He shut the thought down. He had a duty to the victims, and letting himself get distracted by Maggie wasn’t going to find the unsub.

Even if Maggie was a bright, shining star in the midst of darkness.

He moved closer and slid off his pack. “Where’s the best place to talk?”

For a second, it looked like Maggie would pepper him with more questions, but she finally nodded. “This way.”

Praise for The Hidden Sins Series

“…a captivating read, made all the more rewarding when good triumphs.” —Washington Post

“Robert shows off her impressive versatility in this fast-paced and inventive new Hidden Sins series. The small-town setting is a masterful blend of quaint and oppressive, which ratchets the menace and thrill factor. The protagonists carry the full weight of their pasts with them, making their growing relationship as compelling as the mystery element in The Devil’s Daughter. With plenty of twists and betrayals, this is a book that is sure to earn Robert a wealth of new fans.” RT Book Reviews

JORDAN RECLAIMED Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Scarlett Cole

 

“I think it would be fair to say that I haven’t had a welcome home like that before either,” Jordan said. He pressed his lips to her forehead and wrapped his arms around her shoulders.

A part of her knew she should be embarrassed by the way Jordan manhandled her on the street. Lord knew that if her father had seen it, he would be in a state of apoplexy. But she didn’t have it in her to care. It was the most perfect reunion. She’d worn her favorite cream wool dress, cinched with a brown leather belt, but underneath it she was wearing new underwear from Victoria’s Secret in the hope that he might take her back to his place later. It was forward, she knew, but the last nine days of talking to the deeply thoughtful, and unintentionally sullen, man who currently had his body pressed up against hers had her all wound up.

Jordan’s brow furrowed as he studied her, like he was checking her over for injury.

“Do you ever really smile?” she asked. “Because I think I saw the glimmer of a smile when we went on our first date.”

“I do occasionally,” he replied gruffly

“If I kiss you again, will you smile for me?”

Jordan leaned forward and placed his lips right next to her ear. “If you kiss me again, I might just end up taking you standing up against this pillar. So I strongly suggest you take that pretty little ass of yours inside before I change my mind and do it anyway.”

Lexi shivered as his breath whispered across her skin and his words made her ache in the places that longed for his touch.

He reached for her hand and carefully peeled off her glove. Silently, he folded it and tucked it into her pocket. Then he repeated the process with her other hand.

She swallowed as he took her hand, scrambling to regain her control. They needed small talk, something less . . . flammable. “Are you looking forward to going inside?” she asked. It had been years since she’d visited the AGO, and when he’d asked her where she’d like to go, it was the first place she’d thought of.

“Yeah, I am,” he said, leading her in through the double doors. He leaned his head toward her again. “I’m really hoping that looking at stuffy old paintings and relics will help kill the boner you just gave me.”

 

Praise for JORDAN RECLAIMED

About Scarlett Cole

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I’m getting the chance to follow that dream.
