The untimely death of EJ Hampton’s father kills her dream of practicing law with him in her hometown of Wylder. Heartbroken, she now has two weeks to organize the practice for sale. When she meets her father’s millionaire client Dylan Addison, he is demanding and entitled—yet his charisma captivates her.
Dylan is under pressure to renovate the Wylder Hotel before his father pulls the plug on his project. He needs EJ’s expertise, but she is bent on returning to her life in San Francisco despite the fireworks between them.
EJ walks a tightrope trying to balance Dylan’s needs against her own, but doing so is far more complicated when emotions get in the way.

EXCERPT:

He took the wine from my hand and set both glasses on the counter. “Thank you for tonight.” He placed his warm hands on my face, intense cerulean eyes keying into my soul. His lips were kissing close. All I had to do was lean in.
So I did.
The press of my lips against his started out chaste and tentative but within seconds turned hot and passionate. His tongue mated with mine, sending me swirling into an eddy of pleasure. His palms seared my waist as he pulled me from sitting to standing, our bodies aligning in a tactile embrace. I moved my hands up his solid chest, feeling the soft flannel of his shirt, the tensing of his muscles beneath. He deepened the kiss, taking my breath away. My fingers drifted up his shoulders, and I wrapped my arms around his neck, seeking the strength of his body to touch every part of me from mouth to torso to legs to toes. His sultry scent sparked my libido, arousing every cell and atom in my being.
My subconscious niggled at me to stop the freefall, but I couldn’t. Didn’t want to. This feeling sent me to the heavens, and no one in their right mind would want to leave.

Book Blast for Pride of Lyon’s by Jenna Jaxon (GIVEAWAY)……


While running from trouble a woman finds herself in even bigger trouble, stuck in a surprise marriage to a man determined to wed only for love.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Pride of Lyon’s by Jenna Jaxon, then learn even more about this book by visiting the other sites hosting this tour.  In honor of this historical romance set in the world of The Lyon's Den fill out the form below for the chance to win a $20 bookstore GC too!

Enter the world of the most notorious gambling den in London, where matches are made...unusually. Welcome to the world of THE LYON'S DEN: The Black Widow of Whitehall Connected World, where the underground of Regency London thrives...and loves.
What’s a young lady to do when a powerful lord tries to abscond with her and make her his mistress?
When you’re Miss Honoria Quinn, you leap from his carriage and run like the wind to find some place to hide. Trouble is, Honoria mistakenly chooses The Lyon’s Den, a disreputable gambling house as her sanctuary, a move that ends up with her having to make another choice at the hands of the Den’s match-making proprietor Mrs. Dove-Lyons: wed a complete stranger or become the lord’s mistress.
No good deed goes unpunished...
Thomas, Lord Braeton agrees to attend a wager at The Lyon’s Den only to keep his brother-in-law out of trouble. What he doesn’t count on is becoming embroiled in one of Mrs. Dove-Lyons’s schemes to marry him off. But when he tries to come to the aid of another peer, Thomas finds the only honorable thing he can do to save Miss Quinn’s reputation is put aside his hopes for a love match for himself and instead offer to marry her.
As Thomas and Honoria set out on a wary journey to matrimony, can they learn to live together and hope love will grow between them? Or are they doomed to a loveless marriage of convenience from which one or both will want to escape?

EXCERPT:

His light amber eyes had turned dark again. Was it a trick of the light in this corridor that did that? It made him look so...hungry.
A shiver raced down her back.
“As today is our wedding day, Honoria...”
Every muscle in her body tensed. Would he go back on his word not to press her so soon? Her heart raced and her body heated. Did she want him to press her?
“Yes?” The single word was barely a breath. “I wondered if you would allow me...”
She held her breath. Allow him...what?
“A kiss?”
Gasping, Honoria didn’t know whether to laugh or scowl at him. Thomas could be a rascal it seemed. “I believe that would be in order.” They had not even kissed after the ceremony. Papa had always frowned upon such public displays. “It is, as you say, our wedding day.”
“Yes, it is.” Suddenly he loomed so close to her all the air seemed to have been sucked out of the corridor. Gently, he raised her chin and lowered his head until her mouth was mere inches from his.
Unable to stare into those darkening eyes any longer, Honoria closed hers and waited breathlessly.
Suddenly his lips pressed against her, soft and warm. Everything about the man made her feel warm. He held her head in both hands and turned it ever so slightly, until their mouths seemed to merge into one. With that small change came an overawing feeling of rightness, as though this was the way a kiss was meant to be.
She shifted just a little toward him, drawn ever closer to his masculine presence. In response, he pressed his lips against her harder, more insistent.
A thrill of longing shot through her. As though she wanted more of that.

Book Blast for Loving Summer Rain by Megan Slayer (GIVEAWAY)…….


Two apparent opposites find a connection in this charming and steamy m/m romance set in a small town.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Loving Summer Rain by Megan Slayer, then learn even more about this book by visiting the other sites hosting this tour.  In honor of this first installment in the Love Me Do series fill out the form below for the chance to win a necklace and bracelet handcrafted by Ms. Slayer too!

A match made in heaven? More like a match made in Norville and made to last.
Arthur Burton wants a lover and partner, but no man seems to want to be with the local insurance agent. He’s not the bland two-dimensional man on the billboards, but he hasn’t been given the chance to show his colors.
Summer Rain Davis embodies the bohemian lifestyle. He loves his arts and crafts. He’s always had a thing for the buttoned-up professional types and when he’s set up with Arthur, sparks fly.
Love is possible in a small town if Arthur and Summer Rain are willing to give their romance a try.
Can these two men, seemingly total opposites, find common ground and love to last a lifetime? Or will their differences keep them apart?

EXCERPT:

James turned him around to face the mirror. “So, what are we doing?”
“A trim and polish. Just neaten me up.” His heart sank. He was too buttoned-up already and not getting out of his comfort zone wasn’t helping much.
James stared at him through the reflection in the mirror. “May I try something? It won’t be too drastic, but I want to try a slightly different look for you.”
James had the ability to style individuals to make their uniqueness shine. If he had an idea for Arthur, who was he to argue? “Okay.”
“Yeah?” James grinned. The piercing in his bottom lip sparkled. “You’re sure?”
“I am.” He needed something. This could be the small change required.
“Good.” James combed Arthur’s wet hair. “Why do you look so lonely and sad, doll? Not because of that review? Talk to me.”
He kept so much bottled up. If he couldn’t tell his stylist, who could he tell? “Because I am lonely.”
"Why? You’re handsome, have your own business, are smart...” James parted Arthur’s hair, then began trimming. “What’s not to like about you?”
“I don’t know, but I don’t give myself the chance to look for guys, that’s one thing.” He cringed. “That sounds doofy.”
“No, you sound scared and like you need a little help.” James continued cutting. “You need a matchmaker.”
“I do.” He shouldn’t have admitted that out loud, but oh well.
“What do you want in a guy?” James asked.
He sighed, buying himself some time to think. “I want a man who is kind, considerate, who will work with me and make me better. A partner. I want a guy who isn’t afraid to date an insurance agent. Someone who sees beyond the shell and won’t let me get complacent.”
“And looks?” James stared at their reflection. He narrowed his eyes, then resumed cutting. “You must have a type.”
“Not really. I like guys based on their attitude and ability to empathize. It’s about being drawn to the man,” Arthur said. “You know? If there’s a spark when we’re talking, then that’s the thing. If there isn’t, then I don’t bother.”
“I do.” James finished cutting, then combed Arthur’s hair. “Sometimes, you just know the guy is right.”
