From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.


Growing up, the three of us were friends.

He was the nerd.

I was the playboy.

She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.

Amber never knew how I felt.

They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

COVER REVEAL: The Pecker Briefs by @bennettbooks

The Pecker Briefs: Ford and Viveka’s Story (The Legal Affairs Series, Book #7)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: April 17, 2018

I never thought a pecker would get me in so much trouble.
I mean, sure… if you’re talking about a certain anatomical feature of mine that the ladies just love. Given my bachelor status and appreciation for all things curvy and feminine, I could absolutely see that. But a different pecker is making my life much harder than it needs to be.
My name is Ford Daniels, partner at the law firm of Knight & Payne, and my latest case has me wading through the finer points of peckers—woodpeckers that is. Specifically, the red-cockaded woodpecker. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up but that’s what the sexy-as-hell blonde chained to a tree told me this morning.
Her name is Viveka Jones and she is so much more than a pretty face. She’s got wit, charm, and razor-sharp smarts. Turns out my client is looking to bulldoze the red-cockaded woodpecker’s natural habitat in favor of a multimillion-dollar subdivision and the sexy attorney with legs for days (and days), just happens to be counsel for an animal rights group looking to put a halt to construction.
My client’s pissed, but all I can think about is getting Viveka across the table from me. And then on the table underneath me. Perhaps up against the wall. And then—
Well, let’s just say when it’s all said and done, I’m hoping the red-cockaded woodpecker isn’t the only pecker that gets some attention from Miss Viveka Jones.

Review and Release Day Launch: Rough Ride by @kristenashley68 @InkslingerPR

kristen ashley rough ride.png

This was a-freakin-mazing. I couldn’t put it down. No one makes me cry harder than Kristen Ashley can. The words jump straight outta the pages and strike deep. For some reason, I can actually “hear” the characters talking (as well as “feel” the cadence of their speech, especially when all the male heroes drop their “g’s” in present particle or gerund word forms). I could also hear the female heroines, feel their pain, get slightly ticked off when they go full-on gung-ho and require rescuin’ (yeah, I’m talking to you, Indie of Rock Chicks fame), cheer on their strength and power, and, simultaneously, fall in love with their shenanigans and their generous hearts.

“Rough Ride” is, indeed, a most-appropriate title. I didn’t remember who Rosie was until KA reminded us that she used to be Shy’s girl (and, yeah, I got pissed at him for not treating her right in his book). Then, seeing how Rosie was again treated poorly by another man in the beginning of her own book (the f*cker hit her several times and spat on her prone body!!!!), I was revved up. Super revved up!

At times, I almost (secretly) wished that Rosie didn’t get on with Snapper. She was that broken. Then, when KA paves the way for Rosie and Snap’s HEA, I changed my mind. Of course, they deserve it! That’s what I ultimately want in my romance novels. “Rough Ride” is sweet, sad, tragic, joyful, and hopeful, all at once. I loved it.5 stars

P.S. As of this post’s writing, I just read Kristen Ashley’s real-meets-reel short story “He’s Safe in My Hands.” (If you signed up for her e-newsletter, you would’ve gotten it, too.) I. ALMOST. DIED. Keyword: Rush. I need his story. Like, 2 years ago was when I wanted it. But now? Yeah, I need it. Since there’s no news on when it’s coming out yet (Snapper’s story, “Rough Ride,” comes out today, Feb. 13th), I’m semi-dying.

P.P.S. Hound’s book is expected this year, too.

P.P.P.S. I’M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THE FINALE TO THE HONEY SERIES! Out of all the pages on KA’s website, this is the one that almost always gives me and my wallet a dual heart attack (which is both a good and a bad thing). Then again, that webpage probably makes Jeff Bezos cackle with glee, as I go pre-order KA books on Amazon like I got f*ck else to do.

P.P.P.S. Because it’s kinda CHAOTIC today (all pun ecstatically intended), let me add here that an excerpt from “Rough Ride” is below.



From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Chaos series…


Rosalie Holloway put it all on the line for the Chaos Motorcycle Club.

Informing to Chaos on their rival club—her man’s club, Bounty—Rosalie knows the stakes. And she pays them when her man, who she was hoping to scare straight, finds out she’s betrayed him and he delivers her to his brothers to mete out their form of justice.

But really, Rosie has long been denying that, as she drifted away from her Bounty, she’s been falling in love with Everett “Snapper” Kavanagh, a Chaos brother. Snap is the biker-boy-next door with the snowy blue eyes, quiet confidence and sweet disposition who was supposed to keep her safe…and fell down on that job.

For Snapper, it’s always been Rosalie, from the first time he saw her at the Chaos Compound. He’s just been waiting for a clear shot. But he didn’t want to get it after his Rosie was left bleeding, beat down and broken by Bounty on a cement warehouse floor.

With Rosalie a casualty of an ongoing war, Snapper has to guide her to trust him, take a shot with him, build a them…

And fold his woman firmly in the family that is Chaos.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

My dad had been a biker. He was a nomad when it came to that kind of thing (or, really, any kind of thing). He accepted being tied down by his woman and his daughter only, not anything else. Not a job. Not a mortgage. Not a membership to a club. He hung with a lot of them, including Chaos (in fact, Hammer, sadly now deceased, but one of the founding members of Chaos, had been my father’s best friend).

But he’d never hung with Bounty.

“Don’t like the feel of them,” I’d heard him mutter years ago. “If you’re an outlaw, own the outlaw. If you’re not, own that. You can’t wanna be a Gypsy Joker. You either are or you aren’t. They wanna be. But they aren’t. That shit just ain’t right and it could get dangerous.”

He’d been right.

It got dangerous.

I should have known.

I should have followed my dad.

Mom and me had done it all our lives, job to job, house to house, city to city.

Why I stopped…


I knew why I’d stopped.

I’d wanted Shy; Shy, who reminded me of Dad.

And when I couldn’t have him, I’d gone looking.

I’d wanted what my mom had.

I’d wanted that sweetness. That love.

That devotion.

I’d wanted the stability that just seeped down deep into your bones from all that no matter the job changing, the scenery changing, the amount of times you boxed up a house.

Stability had nothing to do with income and locale.

Stability was all in the heart.






About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Review: Keeping Her Warm by @_AlexaRiley

alexa riley keeping her warm.jpg

Alexa Riley is a sure thing. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again. Are you in a book slump? Read Alexa Riley. Are you bored reading a long-ass book that just does not seem to end? Read Alexa Riley. Are you looking for a quick, yet sexy and hot read? Read Alexa Riley!

“Keeping Her Warm” is written as a trademark Alexa Riley insta-love story. The writing duo’s formula is simply this: 1 strong, alpha male + meets, falls in insta-lust and love + 1 younger, vulnerable female virgin + impregnates her immediately and unashamedly + lots of quick epilogues with unexplained yet very expected HEAs = book joy. What more do you want for a weekend full of laundry and bathroom cleaning chores? Nothing, I tell ya. Nothing.5 stars

Excerpt Reveal: Heartbreaker by @annabrooksauth


Heartbreaker, an all new Alpha Male, Standalone Romance by Anna Brooks is coming February 23, 2018!



I wasn’t supposed to be in town for long. Get in, get the job done, and get out.

Easy. Simple.

She was never supposed to happen, and her baby girl sure as hell wasn’t part of my plans. I didn’t need the complication and I certainly wasn’t planning on staying.

“Mommy’s scared, Ryan. Don’t leave.”

Five words. That was all it took for my life to change forever.


Add to your TBR –




When the buzzer goes off, he glances at the score, and his brows draw together.

“That was really um…” I clear my throat. “Good,” I tell him.

“Nah. I usually do better than that.” He sets the gun down and turns facing me, a slight tilt on his lips. “You’re distracting.”

“I’m distracting?”

“Yeah, dollface, you are.” He stops inches away, and I angle my head up. “Everything about you fucks me up.”

The noise around us does this weird thing where it fades away, and the only thing I can hear is the sound of my heart beating in my chest. His eyes glued to mine make my knees weak, and I contemplate if it’d be better to collapse on the ground or fall into him. A kid runs past me, bumping into me and making the decision on my behalf. I lurch forward, my hand landing on Ryan’s hard chest to keep my balance.

He glances down, and I pull my arm away. But he grabs my wrist and puts my hand back where it was. “I like it when you touch me.”

I want to tell him I do too—I loved it the first time it happened at the restaurant—but that’d give him a reason to continue flirting. Instead, I try to take a step back.

He uses his free hand and grabs my waist, holding me in place. He doesn’t need to say anything. The flexing of his fingers and the darkening of his eyes say it all. He wants me.

And when my lips part and my own fingers dig into his chest, he knows I want him too. No matter how much I try to deny it, I’ve wanted him since the moment I saw him walking down the street. Every time I see him, I only want him more, but I know I can’t have him, and it makes every subsequent encounter harder and harder to keep my resolve.


About Anna Brooks

Dual Covers Reveal!!! My Way Back to You and Then There was You by @ClariCon

Image -0208-2018 at 9.59 AM.jpg   Image -0208-2018 at 9.54 AM.jpg 


Love and the right timing were two things I didn’t believe in.
Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her.
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn’t built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.
Love and timing.
I didn’t believe in either.
Then there was you . . .
