Thirty-something paralegal, Hadley Beckett and charismatic, local sportscaster/daredevil, Finn Wilder, disagree about how they should share their lives together. Having been together for three years, Finn increasingly pressures Hadley to move in with him, but being unusually traditional, she wants to be married first, adhering to her moral beliefs, just as he clings to his own religious upbringing when it comes to procreating with her. Each is unwilling to negotiate or concede marriage to the other. Complicating matters is Finn’s seemingly double life, keeping his private life hidden to the point of convincing his viewers—Finnatics—and even his coworkers, he’s single, amid Hadley’s objections. Yet despite their immense disparities, they are determined to make their relationship work, even if it means Hadley has to take their future into her own hands. Then again, Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Raising my left hand, I stare at the bluish metal band on my middle finger. He can’t even promise me a future with a promise ring. I love the ring, but then again, I hate it. It’s a reminder either way. After last night and the things he told me, but I still have doubts. If he loved me as much as he says he does, wouldn’t he want to make me his wife? Instead, I’ll forever be an ambiguous girlfriend, no one of significance in his life. Hell, he won’t even tell people that I am his girlfriend. It’s a lose-lose situation for me all around. “What’s wrong?” Finn asks, standing in the bathroom doorway with a fluffy, blue towel around his waist, running his fingers through his wet hair. The water enticingly glistens over his muscles, coercing me to want to forget about damned kites. I also note that he does, indeed, have a hickey. Oops. Did he even see it? How is he going to hide it today? I guiltily drop my hand. “Nothing.” Staring at his neck, I stand and his mouth falls open. “What’s wrong?” I volley back to him and search his astonished face. “Wow.” He shifts on his feet, his hands on his hips and his eyes roaming up and down my body. I wince. “Is that a good wow or a bad wow?” “It’s a go-change wow.” I look down at my dress and then up at Finn, perplexed. “What?” He adamantly shakes his head and scoffs, “Huh-uh. You’re not wearing that dress.” “Why not?” “There are so many reasons why not.” I put my hand on my hip and argue, “Sorry, but it’s too late to change.” He walks toward me, clutching his towel. “Becks.” “Finn,” I emulate him. “There’s nothing wrong with my dress. It’s not too short, see-through, or revealing.” He stops in front of me, towering over and intently staring me down. “It’s enough. Everyone will be staring at you, including me.” I smile. “It’s a good thing if you do, isn’t it?” He doesn’t answer as he glowers. “Why would anyone else stare? There will be a lot of people there.” Unsmiling, he counters, “Exactly.” I scowl at his face. “Everyone stares at you. Why is this any different?” He clasps one of my breasts, his thumb seeking my nipple through the material, which makes my breath quicken. “Because they’ll be staring at you for all the wrong reasons.” I reach up and stop his hand. “And your Finnatics lust after you for all the right ones?” Taking his hand from his towel, he clutches my other breast, more firmly than the other this time. “I don’t dress like this.” I grin. “Now, that would be funny. You’d be so pretty.” Frowning at my remarks, he points his chin over to his dresser. “Can’t you wear jeans or sweats?” His thumbs begin to circle, clouding my concentration, and I want to rip off his towel. Grabbing onto his other hand, I plead, “Finn, stop.” I don’t know if he’ll take that as to stop about the dress or his hand. I hope he doesn’t stop touching me, even though I need him to stop. He steps against me; his freshly showered body smells so good. “Shit,” he mutters. “It’s a good thing I’ll be there.” Putting his arms around my waist, Finn pulls me into him. “Why? Are you going to be my bodyguard, my babysitter, and my chastity belt?” I retort and quirk up my lip. Without thinking, I grasp the edge of his towel, tucking my fingers into it. His left hand moves from my waist over to my hand and he pushes on it, causing the towel to fall to his feet. Oh, no. He lifts the skirt of my dress and whispers, “I’ll be all three and your overprotective boyfriend.” I clear my throat. “Yes, I’ve noticed.” How ironic. The daredevil doesn’t want me to take a risk, being even remotely audacious. Paired with my cardigan, I could wear the dress when I go to Mass with him if I ever go to church with him. Yet another place he doesn’t want me hanging around him. I close my eyes as he grinds against my bare stomach. “Finn, we’re going to be late.” Nodding, he boldly grins. “Yes, we are going to be late.” I attempt to feebly push him away, but he strongly holds me close to his chest. “We can’t do this.” Finn’s smile drops and he grates his teeth in frustration. “Becks, come on.” He looks around the room and sighs before restoring his gaze to me. “We haven’t been together a lot this weekend. Let’s take some extra time…just for us.” His fingers stroke my back and my willpower. I argue in vain, “We’ll be spending the day together.” He petulantly rolls his eyes and shakes his head, looking down at me pointedly. “That’s not what I mean.” I glance at the hickey I gave him, still wondering how he’s going to hide it since it’s bigger than I meant for it to be. “We’re already running late.” “Late for kites?” “Rod wanted to be there at 11:00 and he’s already on the road. We have an hour and a half drive.” Finn snaps, “Damn it. He can wait.” He takes my hand and wraps my fingers around his solid arousal, keeping his hand on mine. “I can’t,” he heatedly insists. He’s past the point of no-return, but I continue to futilely object. “I promised him I’d be there.” “We will,” he replies impatiently. “You promised me you’d always love me, Becks.” He squeezes our hands around him. “Right now, I need you to love me.” “I do, Finn, it’s just—” “We cannot go when you’re wearing this dress and I’m this jacked up.” He takes his hand off mine and puts his arms around me as I continue to hold him intimately. Inclining his head, he kisses me, gently at first, but then his lips quickly engulf mine. I feel his desperation with every move of our lips. Why does he suddenly want me so much? Or is it just the sex he wants? Finn’s hold strengthens around me and he begins to twist us and walk us backward to his bed. “Finn, no,” I whisper and move my hands up to his chest. His hands are again up my dress and soon inside the top of my waistband. “Stop it.” He stops us at the edge of his bed. “Don’t you want me, baby?” he whispers back, staring ardently into my eyes as he starts to peel down my underwear. He knows I do. I put my hands on his to stop him, but he keeps pushing. Letting go of one side of my waistband, he sits on the bed, trying to pull me down to straddle him. “Finn, stop. You don’t even have a condom on.” I move my hips away and he grips me tightly. Mostly disregarding my statement, his eyes flick up to mine and he says, “You said we’d be alright, Becks.” He pulls on my hips and positions himself beneath me. My eyes widen in disbelief. “Why are you not willing for me to wear this dress in public, but you’re willing to risk getting me pregnant when that’s the last thing you want?” He yanks my underwear to the side and tries to ease into me. He closes his eyes and shakes his head. “I’m not. You said we were okay.” I almost hear the gushing of the adrenaline coursing through his veins. I think it’s like a game of Russian roulette for him. Another rush. There’s no way in hell he wants to knock me up, but he loves the thrill of it being a possibility—something else to triumph. What happens if he loses and gets me pregnant? Would he hate me? Would he leave me? I attempt to lift off him through his steel grip. “No. I said I thought we were. That’s not the same thing.” Finn immediately opens his eyes and as if I just showed him a positive pregnancy test, he scowls and pushes me back. “Then, I’ll put on a rubber.” He reaches for his nightstand drawer and I slide off his lap. I fix my dress and step away. “We have to go, Finn.” “Becks.” I look at him and his eyes fly over my face, pleading with me to reconsider. “Baby,” he says softly. He tears open the package and I watch him work the condom. He then leans back onto his elbows, offering himself up to me with vulnerability in his eyes, but a cocky-as-hell smirk on his face. Finn knows I can’t resist him, yet I think he’s afraid I will. “Finn, what’re you doing? You know we have to go,” I say quietly, but resigned to the fact that we will be late due to the irresistible sight before me. His deep voice utters, “I want to be the only one who knows the ecstasy under your dress.” I can’t help my smile. “You are. You already know quite well.” His vulnerable gaze is now confident when he resolutely states, “Remind me.” I bite my lip and as if he hypnotized me, I take off my underwear. His passionate brown eyes burn into me, as mine travel slowly over his tantalizing body, draped provocatively on his bed. My gaze locks onto his dick and he boldly reaches down and grasps it. “It’s all for you, Becks.” My mouth opens in awe from his brashness. In public, he’s so smug and self-assured about his athletic prowess and aptitudes, yet he’s reserved and so secretive when it comes to me. I see every angle of the complex design that is Finn Wilder. I still must be staring because he coaxes, “Come on, baby. You know you want me.” He gives me a come-worthy grin. Definitely…cocky. I crookedly smile at him, insolently crossing my arms. “You think you do anything for me?” He grins devilishly. “You already took off your underwear.” He’s going to be the death of me. “I can always put them back on.” He deliberately shakes his head from side to side, not taking his heated scrutiny off mine. “No, you won’t.” He licks his full lips and seductively bites his tongue. “I can always go commando to the festival.” Suddenly, he drops his hand from his erection and snarls with genuine irritation rolling over him, “Fuck no!” “Oh, I will,” I taunt. His body tenses all over. “Then we won’t be going. You’re mine, Becks! I don’t want you accidentally flashing anyone and people gawking at your naked body.” “Women fawn all over you,” I counter. “I’m never naked.” True. Sometimes the camera catches him without his shirt, though. “I’m yours. Nobody else’s.” Playfulness seeps into his eyes again. Glancing down at his erection and with a mischievous smile, his impish, dark eyes are on my face as he alluringly elicits, “Why don’t you come and get what’s rightfully yours?” “No, I can’t,” I lie, but knowing that the only thing I can’t do is refuse him. If I ever would take a risqué picture of Finn, this would be it. The way he’s leaning back on his elbows and inviting me to take advantage of what he has to offer is beyond a thousand and one words. “Walk away from me, Becks.” Burning his eyes into my wide-eyed stare, he whispers, “I dare you.”

It’s been nearly a decade since Elle Sloan last saw Luke Hutchins. Close to ten years since she broke up with him over a single phone call, providing him with little explanation. Since the end of their relationship, Elle has done everything she could do to move on, marrying, proceeding forward with her life, almost allowing herself to completely forget about Luke.

Almost.

Out of nowhere, Elle receives a phone call from Luke’s mother. Luke has been in a horrific car accident and, a month later, has just awoken from a coma. However, instead of celebrating, his family is stunned to learn that Luke is suffering from amnesia and only remembers his life as it was before his breakup with Elle. Not wanting to tell Luke that he and Elle aren’t together anymore for fear it may compromise his recovery, Elle is asked by Luke’s family to come to the hospital to see him. Their hope is that she will slowly be able to jog his memory and cushion the blow.

Guilt-ridden over how their relationship ended, Elle readily agrees, finding herself transported back in time with Luke to the life they once shared and the future they could have had together.

The early spring sun swiftly set on the horizon behind the splendor of the Allegheny Mountains, a welcome change from the relatively flat lands of southern Indiana, where a long drive was bound to put you to sleep. Seeing them in all their splendor, the remaining ghosts from my past came rushing back to haunt me, reminding me of the drives Luke and I used to take at my insistence. He’d grown up here, while I had only been in town long enough to attend—and eventually drop out of—Cogsworth University after two years. He’d chuckle to himself as I’d gazed awestruck at the emerald expanses towering around us as far as my eyes could see. Never condescending of my obviously sheltered life prior to arriving in Roanoke, he’d just smile whenever I would comment on how his growing up surrounded by such beauty must have been comparable to waking up in a fairy tale every morning.

And it was here in Roanoke where he was awaiting my arrival, completely unaware that his heart was destined to be broken by me once again.

Sara "Furlong" Burr was born and raised in Michigan and currently still lives there with her husband, two daughters, a high-strung Lab, and three judgmental cats. When she's not writing, Sara enjoys reading, camping, spending time with her family, and attempting to paint while consuming more amaretto sours than she cares to admit. She's also an advocate for melanoma awareness, having been diagnosed with stage 1b melanoma in 2017.

Blog Tour: Lady Guardians: Forgiven by Reana Malori with Excerpt and Giveaway

Today’s stop is for Reana Malori’s Lady Guardians: Forgiven. We will have info about the book and author,and a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading :) 


Geneva Powers had experienced one of the worst days of her career.

She played the corporate game every day for the past ten years and enjoyed the life she’d built. Straddling two worlds was never easy, but she’d done just that for many years. During the day, she was a mild-mannered financial guru in a world of suits. But in her free time, away from the clean-cut world of numbers, she was a Lady Guardian. Riding her bike in the open air with the hum of the engine underneath her, was the only time she felt free to be herself. Due to some underhanded dealings at her office, her two worlds were about to collide in a most glorious way.

Jamison Reed just wanted a good burger and a cold beer.

He was a war veteran, a businessman, and a biker all rolled into one. The night he caught sight of the beautiful woman walking into his favorite bar, all those labels fell to the side. At that moment, he was simply a man. A man who wanted to claim the woman who had a body made for loving. It was only supposed to be one night. Just enough to get her out of his system. That small taste of her wasn’t enough and now he wants more. When danger comes to her doorstep, he knows there’s no one else better to protect Geneva. His need to protect her was too great and he would let nothing come between him and his woman.

Hey sweetheart,” he returned, stepping through her doorframe. At six feet four inches and wearing his black riding boots, he towered over her five feet seven-inch frame. He grabbed the door, closing and locking it behind him before he turned to her again. “It’s good to see you,” he said, just before leaning his head down to capture her lips in a soft kiss. The squeak in her voice as she returned his greeting was so embarrassing. She was thirty-one for God’s sake. “Have a seat. Make yourself comfortable. I was about to pull something out for brunch, but I didn’t know what you wanted. Are you hungry?” “I’m always hungry.” Dropping his black leather bag on the floor, he removed his cut and laid it on the back of her couch. “That third door on the left has a few hangers in there. You can hang it up there if you want.” Eyeing him hungrily, she licked her lips as she watched him maneuver around her large living room. When she’d purchased this home, her mind had been focused on having enough space for parties with her friends and when her family came to visit. Now that Reed was in the space, she felt that she’d known a man like him would enter her world. He was a large man and someone like him needed space to maneuver. “Keep looking at me like that and brunch won’t be the only thing I’ll be eating this morning.” His low drawl met her ears and snapped her out of her musings over how well he fit in her home. Glancing at him, she gave up any pretense that she didn’t want to be underneath him again. At the thought of having his cock inside her again, or his mouth nibbling on her wet pussy, she gave him a seductive smile. “And what if I don’t.” “You’re playing with fire baby. Don’t start something you’re not willing to finish.”

Reana's stories focus on multicultural / interracial romance. A firm believer that LOVE in all its forms should be celebrated, her goal is to weave a story that pulls the reader into her world and share in her universe, even if only for a short time. She currently lives in Virginia with her husband, and has two very handsome sons. You can most often find her enjoying a good book, as she is first and foremost a reader. And she loves a good romance.

“Sweets, you want me to stay with you, don’t you?” I give her the most pitiful look I can muster. Amber immediately starts to giggle, bringing Avery back to the door. Once she notices the look on my face, she’s laughing as well. I can’t hold it any longer, I laugh right along with my girls.
“Alright, Casanova. You win, you can come in and watch a movie with us. No funny business.”
“Are you kidding me? I’m not even going to get a blowy?” I say as I follow both of them into the living room, grabbing a seat on the couch.
Amber looks at me with a straight face and says, “Only sluts give head on a first date. Everyone knows that.”
The look on Avery’s face is priceless, I manage to muffle my laughter with a cough. Her cheeks pink, eyes become wide in surprise.
“Well then, I guess you two are mine, cause we sure as hell did more than talk the night we met. Let’s call tonight the first date of many.”
I can see the desire in both girl's eyes as they remember that night, I even have to reach down and adjust myself just thinking about all the fun we had.
Stretching out in the back seat, there’s a knock on my window, and the most beautiful creature I’ve ever laid eyes on pokes her head in.
“Well, what do we have here?” A wicked smile plastered across her face.
“Can I help you?”
“You sure can,” she responds as she pulls her phone to her ear. “Babes, you have to come see what Kit-Kat left for us.” I hear a muffled response before she hangs up the phone.
I watch as she opens the door and climbs into my jeep, straddling my legs. She groans as she slides her fingers into my hair pulling my face to hers. Forcing my mouth open with her tongue, we battle for control. I grip her hips, grinding her pussy into my rock hard cock.
“Bitch, you started without me,” a second beauty snarks from the door as she climbs in.
“Sorry, not sorry. He was just too delicious to resist.”
These two women are my wet dreams in the flesh, curves in all the right places. Long brown hair, perfect for wrapping around my hand and pulling.
“Are you twins?” I can’t hide the excitement in my voice, as I nibble on the neck of the beauty in my lap. 
“Close enough. I’m Avery, this is Amber. If you’re a good little sailor, maybe we’ll rock your world. You game?”
There’s a twinkle in both their eyes that I can’t explain, these two are ready to play. Who am I to deny them?
“Both of you strip. Arms on the seat and put those gorgeous asses in the air.”
They both purr with anticipation as they follow my command. I slip my fingers into both of their pussies, both moan for me. I decided to have a little fun with Amber and put pressure on her tight hole, she groans deep in her chest, arching her back to give me better access.
“Get Avery off, or you don’t get yours.”
Avery looks at me, her blue eyes dark with lust, as she climbs above Amber so she can lick her folds. I finger Amber’s ass in time with each lick.
“Oh, shit… oh, shit… fuck!” Avery moans.
“Ride those fingers, baby.”
As Amber continues to lick Avery, I’m pumping my fingers into Amber’s ass.
“Oh God! I’m going to cum again!” she yells, bucking against us.
Her body sings to me as if we’re in tune, Amber switches to finger Avery’s pussy, biting on her clit.
“FUCK!” Avery screams her release.
A lazy smile crossed her lips. “You just may be our new favorite toy,” she whispers in my ear before giving it a bite.
Slowly but steadily, I push past the tight ring of muscles of Amber’s hole until I’m sheathed inside, both of us moaning from the sensation.
“Fuck me,” she says.
“With pleasure.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Raised all over the country, I'm a interesting mix of East Coast meets West Coast with a little bit of Southern thrown in, just for good measure. I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee until it's late enough to drink too much wine and am sexually frustrated for your freedom. If you see me online, I'm probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids.

Fluent in sarcasm, Supernatural, and song lyrics, I like talking to people and finding what makes them tick, though that probably has to do with the Psychology degree. I’m up before the sun because my kids don’t sleep, chugging tea and coffee to keep my eyes open and my brain semi functional. Being married to a man in uniform means I’ve lived a lot of places, survived seeing my husband for half the amount of time I’ve been married, and spent a lot of time raising my kids alone.  I love to write messed up psychos with lots of angst, happily ever afters that have to be worked for. Women with sass and backbone, men with a twisted hero complex and the need to control are my favorite to read as well as write.

I wake in the dark. I’m lying on my back. My body is sore and resists my commands to move. The air around me is dense, causing beads of moisture to form on my feverish skin. There is little relief in the atmosphere, for it feels as hot as the skin I lie in. My parched tongue makes a futile attempt to lick the water droplets from my lips.

I realize I need to get up. With no concept of where I am or what is going on, I’m a sitting duck. I also need water. Desperately.

Some deeply rooted instinct stops me from groaning in protest as I push myself up. Every muscle screams its displeasure. I can feel the unyielding ground scrape against my bare skin. Some part of me knows I'm dreaming, but this all feels so real.

My eyes sweep the area around me. There isn't much to see as night embraces the land. I am becoming accustomed to the darkness and soon make out lush vegetation and the outlines of rocks; I’m in a forest. As if someone has turned the volume up, sound evolves around me. Insects chirp and chatter and seem not to heed me at all. That doesn't mean there aren't other things out there that will.

I begin to make my way east, or toward what I think is east. My entire body is singing with tension. Every footfall I make is carefully placed. Giant leaves brush past my bare skin. I suddenly realize I'm naked but find myself not caring. This is how humans were meant to live. Before Eve ate the apple. Stupid bitch. I continue to walk until I notice the moon has risen, casting an eerie glow around the forest. Through the din of insects and nocturnal life, I hear the faint trickling of water. I begin to hurry forward, becoming more aware of my thirst as I draw closer to the sound. Elation fills me, for the dense flora is thinning. In a moment, I find myself at the bank of a stream. I crouch down and use my hand to scoop the icy cold water to my mouth. I've never tasted anything so good. I sit for a time, leaning against the smooth trunk of a tree while I contemplate this reality. It cannot be real. I feel myself dozing only to be jolted awake by an unnatural silence. Abruptly, the noises around me vanish. It is as if the creatures around me have taken a collective breath and held it. The silence is a warning, something is coming.

MJ Vieira resides in Southern Maine with her husband, Alan, son, AJ, and their St. Bernard, Roxy. As a child, she traveled around the state with her parents, seeing the vast history the New England state had to offer as well as touring the nation while showing her American Quarter Horse. While traveling, she read many of the great authors of the time including JRR Tolkien, Stephen King, CS Lewis and Ann Rice. It is these writers combined with power of music, mainly hard rock and folk, MJ draws her inspiration.

In between writing, MJ enjoys reading, collecting music and attending concerts. Lux is the first installment in the Veritas series which is MJ's first published work.
