Synopsis:

I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself. So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head.

Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club. Let me just say this…anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth. After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again.

Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself.

Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch.

Case in point…my seatmate is my new next-door neighbor.

Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl’s bikini bottoms.

And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach.

Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before.

On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun…that is until fate decides to screw with me, again.

Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met? Find out in No Pants Required—a sexy, funny, romantic stand-alone, that will have you hurrying to grab your bathing suit and rushing to the beach to check out every lifeguard on duty.

00Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

NewlyExposedAdam James is a corn-fed, Nebraska raised, piece of man meat with a chiseled body and baby face. He is in desperate need of a paycheck and will do just about anything to get one, including stripping down to his skivvies and lathering up in baby oil.

Solo Cohan is a quirky hipster with a strong work ethic,raised by two gay dads who are head over heels in love with Harrison Ford and Star Wars, hence the name, Solo. She works for Teeg Model Management, the same modeling agency that decides to book Adam as their next up and coming model. Sparks ignite between her and Adam the minute her baby oil soaked hand connects with his practically naked body.

Even though Solo can’t stop thinking about Adam during photo shoots, she quickly and awkwardly, shows Adam her distaste for male models and her inability to engage romantically with them. Adam is captivated by her nerdy talk and peculiar tendencies and sets out to make it his mission to turn the Star Wars loving hipster to the dark side, where mingling with models is widely arousing.

Synopsis:

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence, which dictates the outcome of your future.

I was once on top, I was living the life I dreamt of, I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content…until one night.

One off day.

One moment in time I wish I could take back. My biggest regret.

The once bright future I possessed vanished and in its place a dark world of self-hatred and loathing encompassed me.

People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died.

This is my story of repentance.

Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it’s also true. Clichés come from a grain of truth…like a man with a Porsche is compensating for something, or once a cheater always a cheater—you get the idea. Sorry, I digress. I’m supposed to be telling you what this book is about.

I’m Megan Walker, a lawyer at one of the hottest boutique law firms in Atlanta. I’m on the fast track to making partner and have my entire life planned out…or I did.

We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that.

Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I’ve set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I’m learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years.

Sound like a chick flick, doesn’t it?

It’s not.

R.L. Griffin published her first book in 2004. After that she focused on practicing law. A few years ago she began writing the By A Thread series, which is out now. Her goal is to keep readers on their toes, whether it’s the plot twist or the book itself, her books are outside any box. There is a little bit of grit in most of her books and a ton of cussing. Most books are enjoyed better with a glass of wine, or whiskey, whatever your poison may be.

She lives in Atlanta with her husband, kid and dogs. She loves to travel and meet readers.

The Naughty List by M.C. Cerny

 

Title: The Naughty List
Author: M.C. CERNY
Genre :Romantic Comedy
Because everyone wants to be naughty, at least once…  Carla Monroe, matchmaking momma and regular busy body is about to play cupid once again. This time she’s about to tackle her wild daughter with an unlikely match… The competition.Priscilla Monroe is brash and impulsive… A freaking pain in the ass, if you ask her brother. She hasn’t found a man yet who can keep pace with her and has designed an impossible set of requirements for Mr. Right….Rand Knights is pure alpha, with confidence and pheromones so strong, you might want to bottle that shit up for a lonely night. He thought Pris would be the perfect one night stand and dig at his competition until he got wrapped up in her killer legs. Now he’s more interested in getting to know the feisty, head strong and foul mouthed woman who makes his life impossibly perfect.

 

 

 

M.C. Cerny first fell in love with books after experiencing her first real ugly cry reading, Where The Red Fern Grows. Her debut romantic suspense novel, Flashpoint was written in a series of post-it-note ramblings that would likely make her idol Tom Clancy blush. She is a post graduate of NYU, working fulltime, and calls rural NJ home with her menagerie of human and feline fur-babies. When M.C. is not writing, you’ll find her lurking in Starbucks, running marathons, singing Disney show tunes, and searching out the perfect shade of pink nail polish.

Spicing Up Trouble by Mary Jo Burke

 

 

Please welcome a character interview from

Spicing Up Trouble

 

In
Spicing Up Trouble, Alexia Hale
planned to interview Benjamin Nance Cobb for her newspaper. Here’s the recorded
Q & A between the newly married couple.

 

Alexia:
“You promised me five answered questions.”
Ben: “But
you’re not a reporter or cooking maven at the paper anymore.”
Alexia: “I
know, but this is for my information. Now, move over there.”
Ben: “But
there’s more room on the bed and
it’s more comfortable. Plus, I’ll rub your feet while you ask your questions.”
Alexia: “Okay,
but stay professional.” Kissing noises. “Ben,
not now.”
Ben: “Is
that a promise for later?”
Alexia: “Yes,
the sooner we start, the sooner we’ll finish.”
Ben: “I
love it when you talk dirty.” Bed springs
squeak and more kissing.
Alexia: “Stop,
the babies are bouncing around enough. Now first question, When did you decide
to paint?”
Ben: “I
have no practical skills. All I know how to do is draw. Luckily, I’m
disgustingly wealthy and can enjoy my life choice of being a professional couch
potato.”
Alexia: “You’re
not lazy, just devoted to your profession.”
Ben: “Thank
you, darling. Please explain that to my father.”
Alexia: “He
loves you, in his own way. Do you believe you inherited your talent from your
mom?”
Ben: “She
encouraged me. Her art is more delicate and inviting. Mine is earthier. I know
you can teach people to draw, but mine is more of a hunger. I have to do it.”
Alexia: “Your
paintings include nude women.” A slight
moan.
“No distractions, answer the question.”
Ben: “I’m
rubbing your feet to make you comfortable. I like women. Classic artists portrayed
the more splendid gender in many paintings. Speaking of which, when are you
going to pose for me again?”
Alexia: “I’m
four months pregnant and expanding daily. There isn’t a big enough canvas to
capture my girth. Why don’t you sell your work?”
Ben: “I
don’t need the money and I detest critics. I don’t paint to please anyone, but
myself.”
Alexia: “Would
you be open to speaking about painting to students?”
Ben: “Only
if I’m invited to our children’s kindergarten’s show and tell day. I don’t find
myself knowledgeable enough to add to anyone’s education.”
Alexia: “I’ll
agree to disagree with you. Now that you’re a happily married and an expectant
father, will you stop painting portraits of nude women?”
Ben: “There’s
only one muse in my life. As soon as she delivers our children, I’ll expect her
to honor her commitment to model for me as often as our overlords, I mean
children, allow. Are we done with the inquisition?”
Alexia: “Yes
and you may continue with the foot rub and please include my ankles.”
Ben: “Only
if I get to pick the third body part.”
Alexia: “Ben,
careful the babies might hear you.” Giggling.

The catch: to get it, Alexia has to pose as a nude model for Ben. What begins as an awkward assignment quickly turns into a real friendship…and possibly more. But when a photograph of Alexia is leaked to the press, their private life suddenly becomes very public. Ben’s father isn’t pleased, Alexia’s sisters are shocked, and now she’s being hounded by the press.
Dating a celebrity has its challenges and rewards. The only question is, which one will outweigh the other?

Excerpt

The Internet offered few details about Benjamin Nance Cobb’s work. I needed to visit Chicago’s Art Institute to do some research.
In the morning, out in front of the museum, I rubbed the paw of one of the lions. “Wish me luck,” I whispered to the stoic predator and hurried up the stairs.
Once inside, I cheated and asked a docent to direct me to the Contemporary Art section. He pointed at a tour group, and I followed them. We entered a
large foyer. The guide began to speak, and I saw my chance to escape.
Farther down the hall and to the left, two canvases took up an entire wall. First, a nude woman reclined on her back. Her lush black hair splayed on the pillow beneath her, her right hand laid in the tangles—eyes half closed, her lush lips pursed, her left hand limp
against her side, her knees pulled together and slightly bent. Her whole body
sated. She just had great sex. The plaque beside it read, “Satisfied by Benjamin Nance Cobb.”
No doubt.
Next, a woman sitting on a bed, her back positioned toward the artist, the sway of her hip revealed the top of her butt, her arms and legs crossed in front of her, a hint of right breast showed, her face in profile, her eyes glanced over her shoulder, and her blonde hair
mussed. I read the plaque, “Anticipation by Benjamin Nance Cobb.”
How about Striptease for Benjamin Nance Cobb?
The paintings carried the same message: goddesses with an attitude. Power radiated from them. They owned the men who sought to possess them. Confident in their appearance and sexuality, the viewer of the portrait felt like an intruder, stumbling into the intimate setting. The discomfort was for the outsider looking in. I imagined being free
not to care about others’ opinions, living by one’s own rules. Easier said than
done.
A small blurb about the artist hung on the wall. I didn’t get much passed his age, thirty-five, because next to it a photograph almost stopped my heart. The man himself glared at the camera. Not a posed shot, one stolen on the street by paparazzi. Black hair, ice blue eyes, nose and chin chiseled like a bust of a Roman god.
I stumbled away a little shaken by the portrait of the reaper of women.
Would I be released by my editor from this assignment? No. Would I gain the self-confidence required for public nudity in two days? Double no. Would my sisters ever let me forget I chickened out? Triple-dog no.
Not only my likeness would be captured, Cobb might prove capable of reaching down and finding my true self, ready to be exposed. Could this opportunity remake me into one of those women proudly displaying their attributes to the world? Was I willing to risk all for a taste of confidence like my sisters wore every day?
The new expressive me lay trapped inside the old mousy me. Where there was a will, there was a way, but no graceful way out.
I dodged my sisters’ phone calls and focused all good karma on Wednesday. I arrived early for my exhibition; I mean appointment to a nondescript building with no sign or address, no names on the mailboxes. Subtle message, if you weren’t invited, you shouldn’t be here. I pressed the doorbell, heard footsteps coming to the door, and prayed I wouldn’t faint.
The imposing oak door swung in, and the grail of my quest stood before me. The men of my dreams were book boyfriends. Men conjured up from another woman’s imagination who yielded to her will. All were tall, muscular, ruggedly handsome, and smelled wonderful. Like them, this guy was all those myths come to life. Now I’d add a few revisions to include sparkling blue eyes enticing me to jump into those pools for a slow
swim, full lips, and thighs like tree trunks. Forget breeders’ hips, the sight of Benjamin Nance Cobb made my ovaries explode. He assessed me up and down then smiled. A slight dimple formed on his unshaven cheek. A kiss would fit perfectly on that indentation.
“I’m,” he hesitated andstared at me.
He knew I was a fraud. Who would believe I was a model?
 “I’m sorry, I’m Ben Cobb,” he said, pushing the door all the way open to the wall. “You must be from the agency.”
“Yes, I’m the model.”
Of what, I didn’t know.
“You look familiar. Have you posed for print ads?” His cordial tone sounded as if he had just parked my car.
“No.”
What if he asked to see some credentials or my portfolio? I should have taken Eleanor’s crazy advice about head shots or shots to the head. Right now, I was a bit confused as my fear and flight impulses beat against my brain. As a result, I stayed put and proceeded in. I didn’t dare speak again, my voice hid under the covers, waiting for me to
come to my senses.
“The changing room is to the right, I mean your left. There’s a robe in there on the wall. On a hook on the wall. No, it’s on the door,” he said as he scratched the back of his head. “I apologize. I’m sure you’re a professional and can figure it out.”
Professional fraud at the moment.
“No problem, I’ll find it.” I strolled down a hallway.
Was he upset or nervous? Did I scare him? He probably thought, “How am I supposed to work with her?” Should I apologize in advance?
 I found an open pink door. It was more of a renovated closet with a full-length mirror, an embroidered chair, and an ornate hook on the back of the door with a flimsy yellow robe attached.
I bit my lower lip as I began to undress. I tried to focus on why I put myself in this situation: a career boost and a chance to get in good with the new bosses. I forgot about impressing my sisters, they would be questioning my sanity about now.
Getting him to talk presented the ultimate challenge.
“So why do you paint nudes?”
“Do you pay them or do they pay you?”
“I’m a fan of your mom’s work.”
Helen Nance Cobb’s books were special to me. They reminded me of my childhood before my parents died. Adele’s Armoire, Benjamin’s Bike, Celeste’s Closet, and Daniel’s Dugout were the first four books I could read by myself. Prose and illustrations
represented all twenty-six letters.
A soft knock at the door brought me back to the present. I gripped the back of the chair.
“Is everything all right in there?” he asked.
“I’m coming.”
If I shook anymore, I could make a smoothie. Yesterday I waxed, exfoliated, moisturized, and steamed myself. I wished I could pump up my courage too. Exhaling slowly, I opened the door to meet my new outlook on life or die trying.
The floor creaked as I ambled toward the easel where he stood, cleaning brushes.
“Where do you want me?” I asked as my fist clutched the robe shut.
He stared at me again. I must be the most hideous specimen to ever pose for him.
“When you’re ready, take off the robe, and lay on your stomach on the pillows,” he said, offering a slight smile.
I cautiously strolled over and sat on the floor with my back to the wall.
If a guy jumped out with a camera and yelled “Smile,” I wouldn’t be surprised. Being caught at the most embarrassing moment of my life made perfect sense right now.
 “How long have you been a model, Miss?” he asked, shifting the canvas on the easel.
“I’m Alexia Hale. I’ve been modeling for two years.”
Did it sound believable? Should I have used a fake name?
“Only with Perkins?”
“Yes.”
Who or what was Perkins?
“I’m surprised they didn’t send you earlier. I’ve asked for a variety of women, especially without endowments. Sorry, I mean a woman with natural beauty.”
“My works takes me out of the country.”
My nose was about to go Pinocchio on me, and he noticed my breasts. My nipples hardened up and rubbed against the polyester blend. Traitors.
“Where?” he asked.
“Paris, Vienna, Stockholm, and Hawaii.”
All the places I would love to visit.
“Busy girl. Photography or painting?”
“Both.”
This one didn’t count as a lie. I liked taking pictures, and I finger painted in kindergarten.
“Are you ready to start?” he asked.
I let the robe slide off of me and flopped on the pillows. He didn’t flinch or move for three full minutes. He absorbed me into those piercing blue eyes.
“Excuse me,” he said as he hurried away.
The sight of the nude me made him vomit. I stood, wrapped the robe around my shoulders, and sprinted toward the dressing room. I’d grab my clothes and dress on the sidewalk. He must be calling the agency to complain, and they would out me as a fraud.
He rounded the corner and almost  knocked me to the floor. The robe swirled around my legs and landed in a puddle at my feet. My right arm went across my chest and my left hand fanned over my womanhood.
“Beautiful,” he said under his breath as he swept my hair back behind my ear.
Me? I shivered from his touch. This was why the women looked enraptured in his paintings. They had sex with him before they posed. That would blow the wind in my sails, definitely a step out of character for me.
“Excuse me, I’m being totally unprofessional,” he said as he leaned down, retrieved my robe, and handed it to me. “If you’re uncomfortable staying and want to leave, I’ll
understand.”
“No, I’m fine,” I said as I fumbled with the robe, trying to put it on.
“Okay, let’s get started.”
I followed him back to the studio and pretended he didn’t stir me up. I couldn’t comment on my effect on him as I resettled by the pillows. The robe melted off me this time because I wanted him to see me.
“Please support yourself on your elbows,” he said.
I stopped trembling, pushed up, and glanced at him.
“Like this, Mr. Cobb?” My voice squeaked.
“I’m Ben. Mr. Cobb is my worthless father,” he swallowed hard, grabbed the back of his neck, and pressed down.
I touched a raw nerve.
“Look at me.” he said. I only shifted my eyeballs, afraid to move anything else. “I’m going to tell you when to change your facial expressions like be happy, pensive, sleepy, or sad, understand?”
“Yes.”
“Please follow my directions, and don’t speak or move.”
The artist had arrived and was all business. Time for me to do the same.

Title: The Virgin Romance Novelist

Author: Meghan Quinn

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Cover Designer: Meghan Quinn

Release Date: April 21st, 2015

VirginRNSynopsis:

Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch…

Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.

I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.

My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.

But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Synopsis

The “Friends” are back in book six, the next chapter in the Friends With Benefits series.

When newlyweds Jim and Victoria return from their Vegas wedding, Victoria dives full swing back into her sex therapy practice. With the addition of a new, let’s call him, unique client, along with a couple of old surprise visitors, there is never a dull moment in the naughty professional’s home office.

While Brian and Jillian are in full expectant parent mode, and with twins no less, Jillian’s movie opens to great success. Just when the famous author thinks she’s gotten Amanda Joseph out of her, and more importantly her husband’s hair, the A-list actress returns and in a big way. With the continuation of Jillian’s series of novels heading to the small screen, she’s looking forward to the promise of a huge financial windfall, but will the price tag be too much to bear.

Will Jim and Victoria survive her new clients? Will Brian and Jillian have boys or girls or one of each? And will Jillian’s movie’s box office triumph be the end of her career or her marriage or both. Find out in Friends With Multiple Benefits.

Featuring expanded Ian Dalton scenes, this book is also the continuation of the steamier Victoria Wilde version of the series. The optional “Ian” scenes are easily skipable by readers who prefer the Luke Young variety.
