TMICH by Shanora Williams
     
The Man I Can’t Have by Shanora Williams Release Date: May 9th
 
Release Alert Signup: http://bit.ly/TMICHRelease
 
Blurb: It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…
I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.
The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.
Of course I hired him.
I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.
He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it.
Unfortunately that lucky woman can’t be me.
Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.
So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?
What can you expect?
- An Alpha Hero (who is a bit of an asshole ;) ) - Super Steamy Scenes - An Adorable Beagle Puppy - SOOO MUCH ANGST

There are many things I love:
» My Family » Writing Romance stories w/ angst » Reading » Flowers » The color pink in many shades » Meditating » Bohemian Fashion and decor » Dinosaurs (Jurassic World style, baby!) » Cooking
You will most likely catch me in a cozy corner on my sofa, or in my bed, writing a new romance story, meditating, or binging on Netflix shows or movies!

 

Fun Facts

By 19, I’d hit the New York Times & USA Today bestsellers lists. It wasn’t from being included in an anthology or co-writing, I made that list all on my own and I’m super proud of it! » I’m obsessed with animated movies. Yep, big kid at heart.

Eighty-One Nights by Georgia Cates
 
Eighty-One Nights (Beautiful Illusions Duet #1) by Georgia Cates Release Date: April 9th
 
   
Blurb: Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.
Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
It’s not.
This story begins with a contract.
And an exchange of money.
A lot of money.
An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.
A devil lounges smugly on my other.
And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.
Maxwell Hutcheson wants the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And I’m going to give it to him.
I’m not supposed to enjoy being his whore.
I’m also not supposed to fall in love with him.
But I do. Both.
When our contract expires, I will walk away.
Because I have to.
But he’ll always have a piece of me.
I’ll mask my sorrow with a smile.
I’ll hide my love with indifference
… all while it’s killing me softly.
A fairy-tale romance.
It isn’t mine to have.
And this man I’ve come to love so dearly isn’t my happily ever after.
About Eighty-One Nights:
While the characters from Eighty-One Nights are entirely new, their storyline is a combination of fresh material and carefully selected themes, scenes, and settings from The Beauty Series, The Sin Trilogy, Dear Agony, and Indulge. This is intentional. I chose some of my favorite elements from previous releases and interjected them into Hutch and Lou’s story. Let’s call it a “story fusion” between our old favorites and new material. This work was briefly released under a pen name and was titled The Girlfriend Experience.
   
About the Author: Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.
When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Enthralled by Giana Darling
 
ENTHRALLED (THE ENSLAVED DUET #1) BY GIANA DARLING Release Date: March 29, 2019
 
 
Blurb: It was the biggest day of my life.
I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their
first child. My situation was a little different.
Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold.
Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell.
He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end.
I was his tool and his weapon.
And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.

SWEET LIAR by Laurelin Paige
SWEET LIAR (Dirty Sweet #1) by Laurelin Paige Release Date: February 26th, 2019 Genre: Contemporary Romance
   
AVAILABLE NOW!! Amazon: https://amzn.to/2MOZ7rW Amazon International: mybook.to/SweetLiar Apple Books: laurl.in/sweetliarapple Kobo: laurl.in/sweetliarkobo Nook: laurl.in/sweetliarBN Google Play: laurl.in/sweetliarGP #dirtysweetduet #dirtyuniverse #duet #sexybrit #olderman #youngerwoman
   
   
Blurb: British ad exec Dylan Locke isn't looking for love. He isn't looking for fate. He's definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She's pretty, far too young, and overly romantic--in short, exhausting.
But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he'd be lying if he said he wasn't interested. In her body, in her innocence, in her philosophy. In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses. But Audrey isn't looking for love either--she's looking for lessons, and she's certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn. If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart? Of course he can. Then again, he might be lying.
 
 
Excerpt: Too bad she was that kind of girl. The kind of girl who wanted a man to love her before she lifted her skirt.
God, she was young. Younger than whatever ridiculous young age she actually was.
I’d sworn off love years ago, but not sex. Never sex. And Audrey Lind was all sorts of temptation, the kind I knew better to stay away from. She was too romantic. She was too American. She was too young. Much too young. I was definitely old enough to be her father. Probably.
Definitely.
I didn’t want to think about that.
“I’m pretty sure I can convince you kismet exists too, if you’ll just do one thing.”
“What’s that?”
“Kiss me.”
I was alone. I would always be alone.
I was a girl who felt things.
Dylan was polite, but he wasn’t nice.
I thought she’d be less dangerous in the sunlight.
I was wrong.
She was sex on heels, and I was a goner.
Audrey Lind: Part wildling, part devil, part innocent, all contradiction.
I wanted to kiss her again. Because she had perfect plump lips. Because she tasted like honey. Because she was warm and the night was cold, and I’d been in the dark for so long.
Colliding into her had been like crashing into sunshine. She made me feel warm in places that had been cold for oh, so long.
“I can’t decide if I need to shelter you, or if I should show you off.”
I stretched her and filled her and punished her pussy for being so perfect, so tight, so inexperienced
I fucked her like I’d paid for the hour.
“I’ve never watched anyone watch me like you’re watching me now.”
   
About the Author: With over 2.4 million books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. Her international success started with her very first series, the Fixed Trilogy, which, alone, has sold over 1 million copies, and earned her the coveted #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, simultaneously. This title also was named in People magazine as one of the top 10 most downloaded books of 2014. She’s also been #1 overall books at the Apple Book Store with more than one title in more than one country. She’s published both independently and with MacMillan’s St. Martin’s Press and Griffin imprints as well as many other publishers around the world including Harper Collins in Germany and Hachette/Little Brown in the U.K. With her edgy, trope-flipped stories of smart women and strong men, she’s managed to secure herself among today’s romance royalty.
Paige has a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theater and a Masters of Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis, and she credits her writing success to what she learned from both programs, though she’s also an avid learner, constantly trying to challenge her mind with new and exciting ideas and concepts. While she loves psychological thrillers and witty philosophical books and entertainment, she is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

My Review
5 Stars 
   SWEET LIAR by Laurelin Paige is the First book in the Dirty Sweet Series.  This starts the story of  Dylan Locke and Audrey Lind.  Dylan is in his early 40's and done with love....so quick emotionless encounters is what he looks for.  Audrey is young and hasn't found what she is looking for or needs in the romance department.  When she meets Dylan she is attractive to him and goes forward to act on that...giving Dylan a run for his money.  I cannot wait for the next installment in their story!   Loved their start!

Blurb: I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
This is a stand-alone novel.
 
 
Excerpt: “Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”
For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”
“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”
“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.
He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”
 
 
About the Author: USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful (not currently on sale as undergoing maintenance!), Hopeful, The Empire State Series, The Royals Series and The Nights Series (both series of standalones books each following different characters).
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films. Louise loves the rain, The West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants, and champagne. She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
 
 
My Review
5 Stars

The Wrong Gentleman by Louise Bay is the story of Skylar Anderson and Landon Wolf.
Landon is ex military who is now working on building his business and has not time for a committed relationship...nor does he want one. Skylar is working to stay focused on her career and not looking back to her terrible past life. Not trusting of most men due to her past, she doesn't focus on relationships. When she gives in to a one night stand then walks away she has no ideal that he will pop up again in her life. But Landon has taken an undercover job on the yacht that Skylar works on...now let the games begin. Really enjoyed their story...love Ms. Bay's writing.
