Elena is too young for me, not to mention she’s my boss’s daughter and my babysitter.

That’s beyond complicated. And I’m not even looking for a relationship—but I can’t deny the attraction that sizzles between us.

I need to ignore it. A single dad, all I want is to take care of my little girl, do my job, and enjoy my friends. Anything more is asking for complications I can’t afford. Asking to be hurt again.

But secrets get out, and I could lose my job and my reputation.

And I’m starting to realize she’s the one thing I’m not willing to lose.

About 1001 Dark Nights Bundle:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Alexandra Ivy & Laura Wright, Donna Grant, Lorelei James, Lauren Blakely, and introducing T. Gephart.

Five Dark Tales. Five Sensual Stories. Five Page Turners.

BLADE: A Bayou Heat Novella by Alexandra Ivy & Laura Wright
Blade was held captive by Benson Enterprises and abused for decades. When he’s finally rescued, he can’t return to the Wildlands. Not without the female he was forced to watch being impregnated. Valli just wants to run away and never look back. But with the shocking news of her pregnancy fresh in her mind, she wonders if that’s even possible. Told by her captors that one of the caged animals assaulted her, she knows she must do everything in her power to keep her unborn child safe.

DRAGON BURN: A Dark Kings Novella by Donna Grant
A promise made eons ago sends Sebastian to Italy on the hunt to find an enemy. His quarry proves difficult to locate, but there is someone who can point him in the right direction – a woman as frigid as the north. Using every seductive skill he’s acquired over his immortal life, his seduction begins. Until he discovers that the passion he stirs within her makes him burn for more… Gianna Santini has one love in her life – work. That is until a handsome Scot strolled into her life and literally swept her off her feet.

TRIPPED OUT: A Blacktop Cowboys® Novella by Lorelei James
Stirling Gradsky abandoned the corporate rat race for a more laidback lifestyle. So it’s ironic she’s stuck working with a hard-bodied, know-it-all scientist who treats her like a stoner instead of a stone cold business woman capable of running a large scale cannabis operation. Dr. Liam Argent’s doctorate isn’t in chemistry, but from the moment he meets his sexy new coworker, there’s enough heat between them to short out all the lights in the grow house. Sparks fly as their attraction blazes. But can they weed out their differences without getting burned?

STUD FINDER by Lauren Blakely
Man seeking woman: Hot, rich, smart, witty, self-made multimillionaire Internet genius seeks classy, intelligent, sexy, fun-loving woman who’s interested in settling down and sharing all the good things.
There. Best. Ad. Ever.
I will absolutely find the woman of my dreams, someone who’ll love me for me. Let me just hit the upload button right now…
* * * *
No. Just no. As a woman and a professional matchmaker, I can’t let Dylan Parker run this ad. He’s the catch of all catches. What woman in her right mind wouldn’t fall in love with Dylan?
I mean, besides me. It totally won’t be me.

#1 CRUSH by T. Gephart
Tia Monroe was smart, sassy and successful. Sure, she could get a little crazy at times, but that was part of her appeal. And while she didn’t see herself as ‘classically beautiful’, she had no shortage of options in the boyfriend department. She just hadn’t found one who held her interest. Until she laid eyes on Eric Larsson, and then it was lust at first sight. He packed the perfect mix of smoldering sexy and unapologetic cool into his blond-haired, blue-eyed, ridiculously hot six-foot-four frame. One smile from him was enough to twist her insides. But it wasn’t just his looks, he was smart and funny—charming in the most a-dork-able way. The only problem was…Tia had never actually met him.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

My review: Being from Louisiana i love the Pantera series. And this is another exciting one when a human goes missing from the labs. And Blade goes after her and his cub. I can relate to the background of this book. And Stud finder can a catchy ad be the answer to  finding the perfect women . Maybe will Dylan be the answer. Each book is a winner in this anthology. Happy reading. Lisa

About the 1001 Dark Nights Bundle Authors:

Alexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Alexandra: “I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.

Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.

Laura Wright is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Laura: “Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.”

About T. Gephart:

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

Excerpt:

“That and taking a bullet for you is my job. I do it well. You must believe that, too, or you would have hired someone else.”
“You are one stubborn man. My grandfather’s mules could take
lessons from you. I’ll be out in ten minutes.” She whirled around and headed for her bathroom in the back, then shut the door.
Cutter couldn’t stop the smile from creeping across his face. Had
Shealyn just compared him to an ass?
He’d decided she had when she emerged in a gauzy white dress trimmed in lace that accentuated the hint of gold in her sun-kissed skin. The thin straps clung to the tips of her shoulders, as if threatening to slip down at any moment, and played peekaboo with her blond tresses. The garment stretched tight across her breasts, the three little buttons keeping the bodice shut threatening to pop if she made a too-
sudden move. The flimsy thing also ended well above her knees and, with her white cowboy boots, framed her sleek thighs.
Cutter felt his thoughts evaporate and his tongue go dry. The rest of him turned stone hard. He shouldn’t think twice about Shealyn as a woman, but so far, that seemed to be asking the impossible.
“You’re wearing that?”
She cocked her head at him. “What’s wrong with it? Or are you suggesting this dress is somehow dangerous?”
Her challenge and sass turned him on even more. Hell, everything about her did.
But he was way out of line. The dress portrayed precisely the image she’d cultivated. It was sweetly sexy. Wearing it, Shealyn looked like a gorgeous siren with western flair… and a hint of innocence. The problem—and obviously all the lust—was his alone.
“I’m making you aware that you may attract unwanted male attention in public. But I’ll handle it,” Cutter promised, meeting her gaze and doing his best to shutter the desire burning through his blood.
She stared back, a hint of a smile playing at her lips. “You think I’ll attract male attention, huh?”
Was she fishing for compliments? Her green eyes danced with something he couldn’t put his finger on. Mischief? Flirtation? No. Why would she come on to him when she was already in a high-profile relationship? Shealyn didn’t strike him as one of those women who got off on yanking a man’s chain. Then again, he didn’t know her well.
Whatever she was up to, he couldn’t rise to her bait.
“Ms. West?” He kept his voice as inflectionless and polite as possible.
“Mr. Bryant.” Another hint of playful dare rang in her tone.
“I told you, it’s Cutter.”
“All right. Cutter.” She damn near sighed his name. “You going to answer my question?”
What the hell did she want him to say? Some reckless part of him he’d sworn he didn’t possess itched to simply show her, cross the half- dozen steps between them, take that wisp of a garment in his grip, and tear it off. Once he’d exposed every inch of her body, he would love to put his hands on her, his mouth on her, so she understood what a dress like that did to him. Hell, what she did to him.
A sudden pounding on the door broke the moment between them.
“You ready yet?” Tower shouted from outside.
Despite the man’s insistence, she didn’t move to admit him or even answer. She just stared Cutter’s way. “I’m waiting.”
Cutter searched for a discreet reply. “The dress reveals more skin than it hides. It might give a man the wrong idea.”
“What idea is that?”
The kinds of ideas racing through his head with juggernaut speed and jetting blood south to his cock. “That he can touch you. That he can have you.”
“Is that what this dress makes you think?”
The flash of her eyes and the husky voice she used to ask the question torqued him up. She was definitely fishing for his reaction. Was she hoping he bit because she needed the ego stroke… or was she baiting her hook and tossing it his way because she was actually hoping to reel him in?
“What I think about the dress doesn’t matter.”
“Then why does it bother you? You saw me in less on set.”
Oh, he’d seen her damn near naked. Hour after hour of exposed skin had taunted him with all the beauty a country boy like him would never have the right to possess. But this dress appealed to his deepest fantasies. She looked wholesome yet sensual, a woman aware of her appeal. A female who knew exactly what she wanted in her man…

Santa Curse * T A Moorman

 

Santa’s Curse by T. A. Moorman
Published July 1, 2018 by GothicMoms Studios
Parnormal/PNR Short
Blurb:
What if Santa was a
vampire?
Jacquelyn, an enchantress with an overprotective streak,
thinks it’s up to her to protect her older sister, Jadine, an enchantress who’s
also a paranoid hypochondriac. So, whenever a male comes along trying to use
Jadine, Jackie gets rid of them, in a non-conventional way. When the last
person Jacquelyn expects, a certain vampire she’s had a not so little crush on,
seems to be creeping around on her sister, she has no choice but to get rid of
him, too. In front of witnesses. Only to find out one second too late that she
had it all wrong.
Victor, like many males, has issues expressing how he truly
feels. When he finally decides it’s time to stop running from fate and claim
his mate, he goes to her sister for advice. But, creeping in and out of
Jadine’s place like a thief in the night leads the very person he wants to win
over to draw all the wrong conclusions. Which leads to him trading in his pale
good looks for a white beard and a red velvet suit.
Now that the town knows Jacquelyn is the one behind all of
the disappearances, and thinking she’s killed all of those that are missing,
they’re out for her blood. And the only one who can save her is, well, Santa.
But will he be able to make it back to her before it’s too late?
Enjoy a brand-new tale of how Santa Clause came to be.

 

Prologue

The Yule log crackled in the fireplace, making the
room feel nice and warm. While the smells of apple, cinnamon, and other fresh
baked holiday treats permeated the air. The only sound to be heard was the
creak of the rocking chair as the children jumped onto her lap. “Listen
closely, and I’ll tell you the tale of how Santa Clause truly came to be. Once
upon a time, there was a beautiful enchantress. Her ebony locks cascaded in thick,
black waves down to the middle of her back. Her skin was the same color of the
sweetest chocolate, with curving eyelashes surrounding shimmering, golden eyes
encased in a rounded, angelic face that belied a look of innocence. She
possessed a voluptuous body that most humans would call overweight, but her
weight was in all the right places, and made most of the other supernatural
beings fall in love with her at first sight. If not love, at least lust. Her
name was Jadine Lanstross.
   She was a fun and loving free spirit, and her
powers were more than formidable, though she didn’t use them very often. Jadine
was forever afraid that if she overtaxed her powers, one day she might no
longer have them. Most thought her silly for it, thought it was a waste to let
so much magick go untapped. Jadine figured if she was going to be alive for at
least a millennium she wasn’t taking any chances of doing so without magic.
Yes, even an enchantress can be paranoid and a hypochondriac; it’s not just a
human thing.
Her sister, Jacquelyn, thought she was a waste of
magic and space. It wasn’t always that way, because Jacquelyn used to adore her
older sister. When Jacquelyn was a small child, she used to look up to Jadine. She
followed behind her like a lovesick puppy dog, wanting so much to be just like
her. But, just as human females had the tendency to turn into cold-hearted
bitches during puberty, Jadine did not, but Jacquelyn did. Unlike most human
females, Jacquelyn didn’t grow out of it. Everything became convoluted in her
mind and took on a new, much darker light. Even though their parents loved them
both equally, Jacquelyn grew tired of the way they doted on Jadine, acting as
though she was a piece of fragile glass they had to keep protected because of
how sensitive she was. Just because Jacquelyn didn’t cry at every drop of the
dime like her big sister, it didn’t mean she didn’t want to be shown the same
amount of attention. The knowledge that Jadine’s powers surpassed her own, yet
she hardly ever used them, felt like a slap in the face. Jacquelyn thought her
sister was a fucking idiot for even thinking she would run out of magic, which made
her wish she could just syphon it from her and use it for herself. They say there
is a thin line between love and hate. Jacquelyn both loved her sister, and
hated her fucking guts.
What really heated Jacquelyn’s blood was the fact that
she was model-thin, perfect latte complexion, with eyes the color of a metallic
midnight blue sea, and thick, luscious dark brown locks of hair flowing down
her back. Yet it was Jadine that all the males fawned over, competing for her
devotion as they continuously attempted to court her. If it wasn’t for fickle
human men, Jacquelyn would probably still be a virgin, and she was already
pushing one hundred years of age, which was more like twenty-five in human
years.
But, none of them meant her sister any damn good, but
Jadine was too rainbow-eyed to ever realize it. The ironic part? Jadine was in
such fear of using up her magic that she failed to notice how the males she
bedded all walked away a little more powerful. While most men adored Jadine,
her poor fool sister tended to choose all the wrong ones—the rule breakers,
heart takers, and just plain assholes. She was so busy seeing the best in
everybody that she became blind to their worst parts. Since Jacquelyn loved her
sister more than she hated her, she did away with the fucktards who hurt her
one by one.
Oh, she didn’t kill them, if that’s what you’re
thinking. Jacquelyn was far more creative than that. Since the majority of them
acted like children anyway, she cast a spell on them to look the age they acted
like, and threw in pointy ears for good measure, so they couldn’t even attempt
to mix in amongst humans. Wouldn’t do to have any of the vampires or shifters
confused for regular humans. She also cast them far away from their alcove,
that was hidden from human eyes, to the coldest, most desolate land in the
north.
She had a special dislike for vampires in general, due
to how they always teased her, saying how she didn’t have enough meat on her
bones to hold the amount of blood needed to feed even a baby vampire. So, she
tacked on an added extra to their spell; they would only feed on one night out
of the year, and only a small amount from each victim they fed from. She did
give them the ability to flash or teleport, so they could do so undetected, but
they had to leave a small gift for each human. And what better day to do that
than on the eve of the humans’ most famed holiday, Christmas?
But there was one vampire in particular that set her
blood boiling. He had been a thorn in her side since grade school. Enchantress’
were a different sect of witches—more powerful, more long-lived—and they were
practically immortal, like the vampires. Which is how many of them ended up
being together, most quite literally grew up together. This particular asshat
was the ringleader of all of the teasing, and he continued to pester her well
after their schooling was finished.
Then the tall, handsome, drool-worthy fucktard had the
audacity to start seeing Jadine in secret. He never took her sister out on a
proper date, always met with her alone. She would catch him coming in and out
of Jadine’s home with a dumbass grin on his face. Would catch them together in
various places talking, then they would quickly stop as soon as they saw her.
Honestly, who did he think he was? With his long,
thick, jet black hair that sat just past his muscular shoulders. His hard but
beautiful features looked as though he had been chiseled from stone and brought
to life. He had gunmetal grey eyes, surrounded by eyelashes so thick and long
any male or female would envy them. And his body? It was no wonder he was such
an arrogant, cold-hearted, jack—”
“Woman, are you telling that story again?”
“Of course, dear. It is their favorite Yuletide story.”
“Well, could you at least lay off on calling this
poor, misunderstood male so many cruel names?”
She laughed a little at his mock outrage, then replied
with a smile as she winked at him, “Anything for you. Now, children, where were
we?”

Sexy: Luke & Elise’s First Night (Book #1.25)

Exclusive Excerpt:

Piper and Jordan had moved to the area in January the previous year, and when they had first moved, it had been all about getting situated. Jordan had settled into his new job while Piper had to search for her own. Then, before she had known it, it had been May, and she was a widow.

After that had come his funeral and sorting out all the paperwork after someone passed, all while trying to deal with grief. For a while, the only people Piper had seen outside of work were her mom and Nate. She had just wanted to be left alone. Socializing took too much energy.

But she’d slowly started coming back to life a few months ago, and that was when Nate had really started bringing his friends around. She knew he’d been afraid that she’d be lonely with no family in the area. She felt like she was almost back to normal. Well, her new normal because she was never going to be the same person she had been before Jordan passed away.

And, now, she was grateful that Nate had introduced her to Elise. The two of them got along great, and while Nate was her best friend, sometimes, a lady just needed some girl time. They still didn’t know each other that well, but Piper hoped that could change.

Nate and Luke burst through the front door, shirtless, sweaty, and laughing. They went straight to the food without a word to either of the women and dug in like they hadn’t eaten for a week. Neither of them bothered to sit either; both stood on the other side of the counter.

“I apologize for my husband’s table manners—or lack thereof,” Elise said.

Luke looked up from stuffing his face. “Wha—” he said around a mouthful of food, his brown eyes gleaming with humor.

“You’re a pig,” Elise said.

Nate nestled in the corner of the counter and laughed.

Luke swallowed and smiled. “But I’m your pig.”

Elise shook her head and rolled her eyes, but Piper saw she was hiding a smile.

“Apologies, Piper,” Luke said. “I’m hungry.”

Elise turned to Piper. “Do you care if I get a glass of water?”

Piper jumped from the stool, feeling like a terrible hostess. “Oh my God, I’m sorry.”

“No, you don’t have to get up,” Elise protested, also rising from her seat.

“Yes, I do. My mother would pass out from shame if I didn’t take care of my company.”

Elise sat back down and laughed. “I understand.”

She looked around to the two guys. “Water okay with you guys, too?” she asked as she walked around to Nate and Luke’s side.

“I can get my own, you know,” Nate said.

It was true. He wasn’t really a guest in her home anymore. He raided her fridge whenever he was hungry and helped himself to whatever he needed without asking anymore.

“That’s okay,” she said as she opened the cupboard and reached up for the glasses.

But Nate went for them at the same time she did. As he reached from behind her, she felt his naked chest against her back. A tingle went down her spine, straight to her belly, and she dropped her hands to the counter as she tried to fight a slight tremor.

Apparently, her libido hadn’t died with Jordan. It had just gone dormant. And she didn’t know what to do with it if it was coming back.

 

About R.L. Kenderson:

R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name.

Renae has always loved reading, and in third grade, she wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then, she knew she wanted to write her own.

When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own.

One lives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and the other in the Kansas City area where they’re a sonographer/stay-at-home mom/wife and pharmacist/mother by day, and together they’re a sexy author by night. They communicate through phone, email, and whole lot of messaging.

Going for the Hole

 

Title: Going for the Hole
Standalone
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 25, 2018

 

Blurb

Grip it softly.

Stroke it smooth.
And you’ll sink right into the hole. That’s my motto both on
and off the golf course. The women come in full supply everywhere I go and
there are no complaints. Maybe it’s the size of my driver that gets them going.
I’m Lucas “Ace” Montgomery, professional golfer and world
record holder for the longest drive in golf history. The PGA Tour has been my
life, but it’s time for a break. A few relaxing weeks of drinking and golf with
friends in Myrtle Beach is what I need. However, when a bright pink ball knocks
me out on the course, and a blonde beauty comes to my aid, I expect to see a
gallery girl, a.k.a a member of the Party Groupie Association. Trust me, those
girls know how to have fun. Although, to my surprise, it’s not what I get at
all.
Dr. Ashley Locke is beautiful and everything I’d want if I
was ever to get serious about someone. Unfortunately, she has no interest in me
whatsoever which only makes me want her more. All she wants is to get through
her friend’s bachelorette weekend and go back to her life, but after injuring
me on the course, I’m not letting her run away so easily. When I want
something, I get it.
I’m not competing for money this time. All I want is to win
her heart.

Excerpt

“When can I see you again?”
I shook my head. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“I took a needle in the ass for you. Surely, that deserves
more of your attention?”
Why did he always have to give me that devilish smile of
his? As much as I wanted to hate it, I couldn’t.“Why are you doing this? Can’t
you find someone else?”
“Of course I can, but I want you. We can have secret
meetings in here if you’re still embarrassed to be seen in public with me.”
I rolled my eyes. “I’m not embarrassed. You’re you, and
I’m a respectable member of society.”
He burst out laughing. “Okay, I see how it is.”
“I just don’t want the publicity,” I added. “You can
understand that, right? You of all people should know what it’s like not to
have privacy.”
His smile faded. “You’re right, I do, but it’s my life. I
can’t change who I am.” My body shivered with the intensity of his stare. “For
once, I thought I’d found someone who wanted me for me and not my money or
fame.”
Guilt racked my body and I sighed. “Okay, I give in. I can
see you tomorrow, after I get out of the spa. Maybe we can order in room
service.”
Eyes twinkling, he went over to the door and opened it. “Now
that’s a plan I can get behind.”
Before I could walk out, he stood in
my way, body close to mine. “I’m going to break through that ice wall of yours,
sunshine. One way or another.”
I batted my eyelashes in an innocent matter. “Good luck with
that.”

Bold and brash, Eva MacAteer has spent her life working in her
blue-collar family’s construction business. In doing so, she’s had to fight for
her own place away from her overbearing father, as well as for her own identity
as a woman. Struggling between her loyalty to her brothers and her desire to
strike out to be her own person, Eva knows one thing for certain: getting
involved with a womanizer, no matter how hot he may be, is not the path for
her. 

Stud is not one to be tied down to any woman. Fiercely loyal to the
club and his single ways, the last thing he expects is to become fascinated by
the fiery Eva. He sees his own life reflected in hers and is not quite sure how
to handle the connection.
Can two mismatched people find enough common ground to overcome their
fears and allow love to grow?
