BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Robert J. Sawyer’s SciFi Collection

Golden Fleece
by Robert J. Sawyer
Genre: SciFi Mystery
Winner of the Aurora Award for best novel of the year. Named best novel of
the year by The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

MURDER IN SPACE
Starcology Argo. A superstarship on a mission to a distant world. Controlled by
a monumental computer named JASON, the Argo proceeds flawlessly . . .
until death strikes its sleek decks with sudden and mysterious
precision.
Astrophysicist Diana Chandler is dead of radiation. Her body lies in the Argo’s
ramfield — where hydrogen ions are funneled into the engines.
Chandler’s death has been deemed suicide. But her ex-husband, Aaron
Rossman, isn’t so sure. As he probes further, he becomes certain that
Diana’s death is a matter of murder — and that the murderer is
JASON!
Now Rossman must face the unthinkable: why would an artificial
intelligence conceive and execute that most heinous of human crimes?
And if so, can a mortal mind take on a cunning computer . . . and
survive?
End of an Era
by Robert J. Sawyer
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
Paleontologist Brandon Thackeray is eager to find out what killed the dinosaurs.
With a newly developed, still-experimental timeship, he will be able
to do what no human being has ever done: stand face-to-face with a
living, breathing dinosaur. But he and his partner (and rival) Miles
“Klicks” Jordan discover that they are not the only
intelligent creatures on Earth at the end of the Cretaceous. There’s
a war going on and the dinosaurs are right in the middle of it.

Please note that this book is not part of The Quintaglio Ascension Trilogy.
It is a stand-alone novel set on Earth.
Starplex
by Robert J. Sawyer
Genre: SciFi Adventure
The only novel of its year to be nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula
Awards. Starplex won Canada’s Aurora Award for best novel of the
year.

For nearly twenty years Earth’s space exploration had exploded outward,
thanks to a series of mysterious, artificial wormholes. No one knows
who created these interstellar passages, yet they have brought the
far reaches of space immediately close. For Starplex Director Keith
Lansing, too close.
Discovery is superseding understanding. And when an unknown vessel — with no
windows, no seams, and no visible means of propulsion — arrives
through a new wormhole, an already battle-scarred Starplex could be
the starting point of a new interstellar war . . .
Frameshift
by Robert J. Sawyer
Genre: SciFi Thriller
Frameshift won Japan’s Seiun Award and was a finalist for the Hugo
Award.

Pierre Tardivel is a scientist working on the Human Genome Project with the
Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Burian Klimus. A driven man, Pierre works
with the awareness that he may not have long to live: he has a
fifty-fifty chance of dying from Huntington’s disease, an incurable
hereditary disorder of the central nervous system. While he still has
his health, Pierre and his wife decide to have a child, and they
search for a sperm donor. When Pierre informs Dr. Klimus of their
plan, Klimus makes an odd but generous offer: to be the sperm donor
as well as to pay for the expensive in vitro fertilization. Shortly
thereafter it transpires that Klimus might be hiding a grim past: he
may be Ivan Marchenko, the notorious Treblinka death-camp guard known
as Ivan the Terrible.
While digging into Klimus’s past with the help of Nazi hunter Avi Meyer,
Pierre and his wife discover that Pierre’s insurance company has been
illegally screening clients for genetic defects. The two lines of
investigation begin to coverage in a sinister manner, while they
worry about the possibility of bearing the child of an evil, sadistic
killer . . .
Factoring Humanity
by Robert J. Sawyer
Genre: SciFi
In 2007, a signal is detected coming from the Alpha Centauri system.
Mysterious, unintelligible data streams in for ten years. Heather
Davis a professor in the University of Toronto psychology department,
has devoted her career to deciphering the message. Her estranged
husband, Kyle, is working on the development of artificial
intelligence systems and new computer technology utilizing quantum
effects to produce a near-infinite number of calculations
simultaneously.

When Heather achieves a breakthrough, the message reveals a startling new
technology that rips the barriers of space and time, holding the
promise of a new stage of human evolution. In concert with Kyle’s
discoveries of the nature of consciousness, the key to limitless
exploration — or the end of the human race — appears close at
hand.
This edition includes a reading group guide.

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Wehr Wolff Castle by B. Bentley Summers

Wehr Wolff Castle
The Wehr Wolff Chronicles Book 1
by B. Bentley Summers
Genre: Historical Horror, LGBT
During the rise of Nazi Germany, Hagen Messer joins the Royal Air Force as
an American soldier who specializes in tracking. He’s attached to
British commandos and given a seemingly simple mission—to find a
captive and destroy a dam—but everything goes awry. Hagen’s plane
crashes into Germany’s Wehr Forest and he has to use his
extrasensory abilities to track the captive to nearby Wehr Wolff
Castle, a secret Nazi base where vile experiments are being conducted.

Hagen and his surviving team members must sneak into the castle and devise
a way to destroy the experimental labs creating diabolical creatures.
Hagen is horrified to find Nazis and scientists with no scruples, and
at the most inconvenient time, he learns that he may be in love with
one of his teammates, an Irishman named Liam. In order to protect his
love and his friends, Hagen must feign nonchalance amidst pure
degeneracy and suspicion. Hagen soon discovers, though, that he is in
over his head.
What may not only redeem him, but also save his lover and friends, is a
childhood past and a darkness lurking deep inside him, just waiting
to be engaged.
Bryce is a psychologist, author, and the founder of Queer Sense
Theory.

Bryce writes popular fiction genres meant for all audiences under Bryce
Bentley Summers, and pens gay fiction under B. Bentley Summers,
although he’d argue that anyone would enjoy his gay fiction pieces.
Bryce’s full time work is at the Veteran Affairs where he has been employed
for five years. He has extensive history of working with people
diagnosed with PTSD and he used these experiences when writing Fresh Meat.
The novel, Fresh Meat, recently won Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards for
best gay fiction. This piece is more than just a book, but embraces
gay identity while deploring the hateful violence that happens in the
U.S. prison system, and across the world. The book parallels the
vicious Man-Punk prison system to the long ago abolished American
Slavery System. However, Fresh Meat is not non-fiction, but fiction,
and it’s genre is best described as Supernatural Horror.
Rotville and The Zombie Squad, are two of Bryce’s recent completions. The
Zombie Squad is a teen Post-Apocalyptic Thriller that recently
received Reader’s Favorite 5-Stars. This novel has humor and is fast
pace, that follows four teens in New Orleans who find themselves not
only chased by psycho gangsters, but in the middle of zombocalypse.
Rotville is a new adult/ adult Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic Horror that
takes place in the near future, in a city called Rotville where
people with a rot disease are quarantined. Inside this city is the
mega prison Colleseo, where inhumane experiments are carried out on
inmates. It’s also the birthplace of Dylan, a super soldier who must
fight his way out, save a couple of youths from the new deadly
mutants, and keep from being re-caught by the greedy director.
Bryce is also the author of the fiction Young Adult Dark Fantasy/ Sci-Fi
series AMEN TO ROT. The novel NYTE GOD is the conclusion to this
series. The Amen to Rot series and Nyte God pit Ace and his friends
against alien invaders who are turning humans into mutant creatures.
Bryce authors popular fiction with a style that entices readers of all
backgrounds to consume, and makes every attempt to make his
characters diverse.
As noted, Bryce does dabble in gay fiction, and pens it under B. Bentley
Summers, though in truth, these works are meant for everyone to read.
Bryce is the founder of Queer Sense, a theory that describes how
people form attitudes. The theory provides insight into how specific
components in cultural contexts shape our beliefs and values, which
ultimately form our attitudes. The nonfiction book, QUEER SENSE: How
Are Attitudes Formed? A Revolutionary Guide for Teens, Parents,
Mental Health Professionals and Anyone Interested in Queer Theory, is
due out by 2016.

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never
met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I
work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often
in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be
dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the
middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything
is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love
my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my
significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently
available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of
course, there will be many more stories to come.

Is she the answer to his dreams … or the person who will be forced to

He’s a farmer, dammit, not a bookkeeper
When Stetson Miller inherits his father’s farm in Idaho, he’s too
focused on crops and yields to pay attention to the financial side of

the bank is threatening to foreclose … and the auditor who’s come
to examine his accounts is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

altar. He’ll guard his heart – but he can’t help wanting her.
She’s checking him out … in more ways than one
Jennifer Kendall doesn’t mind a tough job, but the handsome Stetson is
trouble of a different kind. When he isn’t making her mad, he’s

A city girl who loves Christmas …
Bonnie Patterson adores Christmas, so when her best friend Jennifer invites
her to spend Christmas at the Miller farm, she jumps at the chance.

Instead of a peaceful holiday in the country, Bonnie gets stranded at the

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: A Wicked Treat by Crimson Syn

A Wicked Treat
Sinful Holiday Series Book 1
by Crimson Syn
Genre: New Adult Romance
A WICKED HALLOWEEN ROMANCE
Anthony Reed has me primed and ready for so much more.
More of his mouth, more of his touch, more of his deliciously dirty words.
The man seduced me from the first moment I saw him,
And I can’t seem to stop myself from getting lost in him.
But my job is at stake, and so is my heart.
Yet I can’t help but fall for his devilish ways.
I have never yearned for a woman like I do Miss Ana Collins.
She’s beautiful, smart and unbelievably tempting.
She’s also my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher.
I should stay away from her, protect her, but I can’t do that.
My angel means everything to me.
Even if I have to fight my torrid past, I will have her.
She’s the only one who can mend my broken heart.

 

***This Halloween, an angel will fall in the hands of a very horny
devil.***
Mature audiences only: 18+
Explicit sexual scenes and language.

My name is Crimson Syn,
not really, but what fun is it to use my real name. Instead I’ll
use my inner goddess’ name, it’s much more fun that way. I
grew up in New York City where I had a wonderful education, loving
parents and awesome friends. What more could a girl ask for?
I started writing at the age of sixteen. The first romance I read was
Stephanie Laurens’ Devil’s Bride. Since then I have been
influenced by dozens of flourishing romance authors and even more
dashing and daring rogues. I must say it, but Fifty Shades was not my
first erotic romance, nor did it influence me to start writing them.
If you’ve never read Mary Balogh, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas,
Bertrice Small or A.N. Roquelaure’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy, then
you’re missing out. Those were my sweet introductions to erotic
romance, and boy were they hot.
So here I am, after reading so many wonderful stories, I have too many
sinful tales of my own not to share. I like my alphas rough and
possessive, and I have no shame in saying it or writing it. I had
delightfully wicked teachers growing up, their books took me to new
worlds and brought me new loves. So, I want to do the same for you. I
want to indulge my readers in those steamy reads that will send them
into the arms of dangerous alphas and deliciously sexy rogues,
without leaving the confines of their nice warm bed. If I am able to
entice your inner goddesses, then I have done my job and I am
satisfied.

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Loves of Times Past

DESPERATE BRIDE
by A.S. Fenichel
Genre: Historical Romance
Pub Date: 9/26/2017

An unexpected promise . . . an everlasting passion.
An accomplished musician, Dorothea Flammel has refused more proposals
than any London debutante; her only true love is her music. Dory’s
shimmering talent and beauty have long been adored from afar by
Thomas Wheel, an untitled gentleman who can only dream of asking for
the hand of a nobleman’s daughter. But when her father, the
insolvent Lord Flammel, arranges for Dory to marry a lecherous Earl
in order to pay off a debt, she runs to Thomas—and proposes
marriage to him.
Eloping to Scotland saves Dory from a disastrous fate, but what is for her a
mere marriage of convenience proves more passionate—and more
complex—than either imagined as rumors, scandal, and buried
emotions come to light. And when a vengeful challenge from a drunken
and embittered Lord Flammel puts Thomas’s life on the line, will
the fragile trust between husband and wife be enough to save them
both?

A.S. Fenichel adores writing stories filled with love, passion, desire, magic and
maybe a little mayhem tossed in for good measure. Books have always been her
perfect escape and she still relishes diving into one and staying up
all night to finish a good story. Originally from New York, she grew
up in New Jersey. She now lives in the southwest with her real life
hero, her wonderful husband. When she is not reading or writing she
enjoys cooking, travel, history and puttering in her garden.

THE REUNION

Lady Emmaline Shaw’s reputation was irreparably damaged when her fiancé,
John Brantwood, disappeared immediately after their engagement four
years ago. Since then, she’s grown from a shy, uncertain girl to a
woman who knows her own mind. And what she knows is that London
society holds nothing for her.
Rumor has it that John ran off to war and died in battle. Now, as the new
Duke of Worley, his shocking resurrection throws the ton into a tizzy
and makes him one of England’s most sought after bachelors—except
that he’s already engaged.
John needs a wife capable of smoothing his beloved sister’s introduction
into society. But though Emma happily grants him his freedom, her
fiery beauty and resilient spirit hold him captive. In fact, John has
no intention of letting her go. Her fate is now in his hands, but
will her heart be safe there as well?

Sara Portman is an award winning author of historical and contemporary romance. In

1920s . . .
Olga Novikov is a princess without a throne. Her fiancé and her family
slain in the revolution, she flees Russia and finds herself working
as the head of housekeeping at London’s luxurious Grand Russe
Hotel. It’s a far cry from the glamour of her former life, but
she’s grateful for the job—until a guest forces her to question
where her loyalty lies. The charming nobleman challenges her at every
turn—and arouses dreams of romance she thought she’d abandoned
forever . . .
Douglas “Glass” Childers is living a double life. On the surface, he’s
the indolent Viscount Walling, but in truth he’s an intelligence
agent searching for a Bolshevik weapons master. The coolly beautiful
and headstrong housekeeper is a distraction he doesn’t need—unless
she’s the key piece in the puzzle he must solve. Trusting her could
be dangerous—but loving her is an undeniable temptation . . .

Heather Hiestand was born in Illinois but her family migrated west before she
started school. Since then she has claimed Washington State as home,
except for a few years in California. She wrote her first story at
age seven and went on to major in creative writing at the University
of Washington. Her first published fiction was a mystery short story,
but since then it has been all about the many flavors of romance.
Heather’s first published romance short story was set in the
Victorian period and she continues to return, fascinated by the rapid
changes of the nineteenth century. The author of many novels,
novellas and short stories, she makes her home in a small town with
her husband and son and supposedly works out of her tiny office,
though she mostly writes in her easy chair in the living room.

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Jerry Bader

Organized Crime Queens:
The Secret World of Female Gangsters
by Jerry Bader
Genre: Biography
From the bizarre world of female Japanese motorcycle gangs to the historic
rise and fall of London’s Forty Elephants, the history of female
organized crime is both fascinating and strange. These are the
stories, both true and legendary of the female crime bosses that
broke the mould of feminine gentility. This is The Secret World of
Female Gangsters.
Most of society thinks of women as the gentler sex, the sex with more
compassion and empathy, not prone to violence. The truth is history,
and current events, are littered with stories of violent women who do
whatever it takes to get what they want; women who either revel in,
or accept as needed, whatever acts of torture, murder and depravity
that are required to achieve their goals. We’re not talking about
mundane psychopaths that kill their children and their husbands; or
homicidal maniacs that kill randomly without purpose, other than for
some sexual or psychological gratification. We’re talking about
female organized crime bosses, leaders of highly structured, often
successful criminal organizations.
Most everyone knows about the high profile male mobsters; people like
Lucky Luciano, Myer Lansky, Bugsy Segal, Arnold Rothstein, and Al
Capone: men who became legends, rightly or wrongly, due to the
public’s insatiable appetite for literature, movies, and television
stories based on their lives. But what about their female
counterparts, they definitely existed and still exist. Their stories
are both fascinating and cautionary. Their histories provide an
alternative perspective on the equality of the sexes; everything has
a price. We are talking about smart, capable, talented, ruthless
women who under other circumstances might have become leaders in
either business or politics; women who demanded respect, loyalty and
a big payday; or else.
What’s Your Poison?:
How Cocktails Got Their Names
by Jerry Bader
Why do we call mixed alcohol drinks “cocktails”? How do they get
their exotic names: names like the Singapore Sling, Screw Driver, the
Alamagoozlum, the Angel’s Kiss, the Hanky Panky, the Harvey
Wallbanger, Sex On The Beach, the Monkey Gland, the Brass Monkey, the
Margarita, the Japalac, the Lion’s Tail, and many, many more? Who
makes up these names, where are they invented, why, and how do you
make them? These questions will be answered in “What’s Your
Poison?” by exploring the incidents, people, and places that
prompted the creation of these exotic concoctions.

Beating the System
by Jerry Bader
It’s been said that gambling is a tax on the dumb; that may be overly
harsh, but the fact is, most gambling venues are designed to
guarantee you lose. It doesn’t matter if it’s horseracing,
lotteries, casinos, or the annual state fair. As soon as you plunk
down your dollar you’re a loser. Those milk bottles at the bottom
of the pyramid you’re trying to knock down are filled with lead,
and that basketball net that looks so close you can’t miss, is
actually oval not round, and barely big enough for a ball to pass
through.

Most people like to take a chance every once in a while; maybe they’ll
get lucky. It’s a kick, a lark: an afternoon’s entertainment.
They know when to walk away… others don’t… some can’t. For
them it’s a drug, a search for an unattainable high. Deep down they
don’t even want to win. It’s sad. It’s pathetic is what it is.
You see these sorry souls at the track, at the casinos, or anywhere
there’s a game of chance. They’ll bet on horses, dogs, camels’…
even killer roosters. It’s nuts I know, but their addicts, they’ll
bet on people, and that’s the worst bet of all. Gambling is for
suckers; that’s why gamblers don’t gamble, they fix the game, and
even then, it doesn’t always work.
Horse racing is advertised as the sport of kings. Sure, if that’s what
you want to believe. I was a jockey, it was my job, but I made my
living as a fixer. You want to know what really goes on behind the
scenes. You want to know what horse racing is really all about. Then
come a little closer, cause I got a story for you.
Jerry Bader is author, publisher, and Senior Partner in MRPwebmedia.com. He

BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY: The Halfling by Melissa H. North

The Halfling
by Melissa H. North
Genre: Fantasy
“There are three things I know are
certain in my life. Firstly, I am a cursed halfling—part faerie,
part human. Another thing I know is I hate faeries. They are
deceitful, evil, and conniving.
The third thing I know—and it is
a certainty—nothing is guaranteed in this life, including your
sanity, your family, and your world as you know it.” –
Eliana
Eliana finds herself propelled into a world she longs
to stay away from; a world where nothing is what it seems. In a race
against minds, she must master her magic and fight an unimaginable
darkness, stretching throughout the realm of Grandelione. The same
darkness that cursed her mother and, now, her half-brother is laying
dormant in her too.
It grows stronger with each passing day.
Left with two options, she must choose to fight and bring
peace back to Grandelione or plunge into a world of darkness and
murder.
Can she learn to harness her magic and bring
peace back to Grandelione and her family?
Or will the
darkness within consume her?
Pursued by her brothers from the Faerie
realm of Grandelione, Eliana Ariarose flees through the streets of
New York City.
Her brothers are sworn enemies, with
the youngest, Caelian, having battled to earn his title of Crown
Prince from Aemon – a royal who vows bloodshed in order to have his
claim to the throne restored.
As Eliana flees, she makes startling
discoveries about herself and her real identity, as well as the truth
about her upbringing.
Eliana meets many beings from the
Faerie world. Some would die to keep her safe, while others would
happily steal her immense and unusual powers, right before destroying
her heart and soul.
Writing has always
been a hobby and cathartic experience for me. Turning my passion into
a fulfilling career as an Author has been one of my greatest dreams.
I write because creating something that didn’t exist before is as
close to magic as I’ll ever get. All you need is imagination.
I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the
influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I
love engaging with the projects I work on, diving headfirst into the
research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are worth
writing about. I am a curious and proactive Author, interested in
preserving the foundations set by classical literature by adapting
them to modern themes and trends.

King’s Reach as the village’s Constable. He thought it would be
the perfect place to rest, relax, and die in peace. He was wrong. In
an unexpected complication, the slave with her neck on the block
seems to possess the same magic Royce has hidden all his life.
Paying off Tiadaria’s bond, Royce takes possession the slave. Now he must
teach her to trust him, teach her to fight, and teach her about her
unique abilities before they both run out of time. An ancient menace,
the Xarundi, have returned. They are the most dangerous enemy
humanity has ever faced, and they have a thousand years of
bloodthirsty vengeance to exact.
The Darkest Hour
Magic of Solendrea Book 2
When an agent from the Imperium Intelligence Service shows up on
Tiadaria’s doorstep, he leaves her with unwelcome news. Recovering
from their brutal defeat at Dragonfell, the Xarundi are seeking out
an ancient and incredibly powerful relic buried in the snow and ice
of the Frozen Frontier.
Tiadaria travels to the city of Ethergate to seek out an apprentice skilled in
magical research. Even with his reluctant help, unearthing
information on the relic proves to be almost impossible until a
savage turn of events puts them on the right path.
Now it’s a race against time through some of the most unforgiving
territory on Solendrea to beat the Xarundi to the relic and stop them
from unleashing its devastating power on the unsuspecting masses.
The Pegasus’s Lament
Magic of Solendrea Book 3
A desecrated tomb, a missing relic, and cold-blooded murder. The
streets of Dragonfell are awash in blood and the King has called on
Tiadaria, the last swordmage, and Wynn, her quintessentialist
companion, to uncover the nature of the darkness.
What they find is more dangerous than they could ever imagine and from a
source they’d have never expected. Now Tiadaria must defeat an
enemy that knows her almost as well as she knows herself.
The survival of the Human Imperium is on the line and time is running out
for the last swordmage and everyone she holds dear.
Volinette’s Song
Magic of Solendrea Book 4
Volinette Terris has everything most girls could want: a famous family, plenty
of money, and a career as a talented musician. No one would expect
her to risk losing it all to try and become a mage, but when the
School of Sorcery opens for the Trial of Admission, that’s exactly
what she does.
If only she’d known that winning a place in the Academy of Arcane Arts
and Sciences would be the least of her problems. Now she finds
herself accused of murder, tormented by her fellow students, and
implicated in the theft of a mystical artifact that could bring about
the end of the world.
And that’s just the first semester!

Pirates of the Siren’s Sea
Magic of Solendrea Book 6

What do you do when the people you trust the most betray you?

Tiadaria, the last Swordmage, was once one of the King’s most trusted advisers.
Now she’s fallen out of favour and has been cast out of the realm she
helped save from demons and dragons. When pirates start sinking ships
off the coast of Dragonfell, Tiadaria offers her services to the
realm, but the pride of Kings is not easily put aside.
Unwilling to let the Imperium fall, Tiadaria approaches the King’s only
daughter, a reclusive Princess unseen by the people for almost two
decades. What happens next is a race against time as Tiadaria and her
allies commit an act of treason to stop a corrupt sorceress from
endangering the fate of the world.
Only a Swordmage can turn an act of sedition into salvation for the
Imperium in this rousing fantasy tale of swords and sorcery.

About BURN FOR YOU (Slow Burn #1)

Available October 17th

The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real… Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.

The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.

As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?

Read an excerpt from BURN FOR YOU

This time it was me who froze in shock when our lips came together. It took him several long moments of gentle coercion with his tongue before I finally opened my mouth. When I did, it was on a soft groan that he stole when he inhaled.

He was so big, and warm, and hard everywhere, except for his mouth, which was like cotton candy. I melted into it. He slid his thumb under my ear, and I shivered. His fingers pressed into my scalp. When he sank his teeth gently into my lower lip, lightning flashed through me.

I fisted my hand into the scruff of his neck and pulled him closer.

Suck, slide, nip, repeat, feel your pulse in all the hidden places in your body. This kiss was cashmere. It was luxuriant. It was decadent, unhurried, sweetly delicious, like stretching out on warm sand and drinking a mai tai. His scent was in my nose: pine and musk and something earthy and fresh, the way the woods smell after it rains.

He made that masculine sound deep in his throat that I found weirdly thrilling and pressed his hand into the small of my back. It brought our lower bodies together and provided me with impressive evidence that Jackson Boudreaux was anything but nonsexual.

“Oh,” I breathed.

His laugh was soft and dark. “Yes, oh. Stop talking.”

I couldn’t catch my breath, but it didn’t matter because his lips were on mine again. Little puffs of air through my nose would have to sustain me.

His hand in the small of my back became the iron band of his arm around my waist. My nipples tightened. His heartbeat crashed against my chest. The kiss turned from slow and sweet to hard and hot, first melting me and then lighting me on fire.

He tangled his hand into my hair, pulled the clip loose that held it all in place, and let it fall to the floor. He made that sexy, manly noise again when my hair spilled into his fingers. I fought the urge to press my hips against his, then softly moaned in relief when he did it for me, one big paw cupped under my bottom. Yes, yes, yes, thrummed my heart, aching for more.

He broke away, breathing heavily. My eyes drifted open. He stared down at me with a look like he might devour me.

Good thing I was in the mood to be devoured.
