Brady…
What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. 

Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.


I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things. 

Katherine…
When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me. 


What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love. 

I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.


Shameless is an adult contemporary romance/spinoff featuring a character from The Dearest Series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

Leighton McCall has a great job as a corporate lawyer, a terrific apartment, the perfect parents, and the best friends any woman could want. Up until now she has led a seemingly charmed life. 

Having it all though has come at a price. Her ideal job isn't so ideal. They only like to promote men. Being Senator Andrew McCall's daughter has never been easy. She has learned to live her life under her father's shadow and in the spotlight. Not to mention, the loss of her older brother has left an irreparable rip in her family. Her perfect family is really a sham, created for her father’s political aspirations. The only thing perfect in her life are her girlfriends. But even they don't know she is keeping a secret. 

She had a vacation fling with a less than perfect candidate, Owen Foster, a construction worker from "Down Under" who has left her with a slight complication. What's a girl to do when everything she worked for isn't working? And the one man who holds the key to her heart, she can never picture fitting into her world, even if he is so into her.

Excerpt

 “You understand. You’re mine. Say it.” 

“I’m yours.” 

He moved down to a spot above the swell of her breast, nipped it and then licked it. 

“More.” She rubbed herself against his thigh. His erection swelled. 

“Hold still.” 

She relaxed into the sheets and closed her eyes briefly, trying to obey him. 

“You like that, don’t you?” He squeezed her breast as his mouth latched onto her nipple and sucked. He scraped his teeth along the tip. 

“Yes. Now, shut up and do me,” she snapped back. 

It’s what he liked about her. She was spunky and smart. She never would take any guff from anyone, including him. 

“I told you. I’m in control.” 

“Sure, Aussie. You’re in control.” 

“Do you want this to end?” He clutched her ass and pressed his erection against her clit. 

“Hell no.” She sounded breathy and mutinous. 

“Then behave.” To change it up, he reached down to see how wet she was and took her other nipple into his mouth. He used his other hand to apply pressure, as he sucked on her breast. Releasing it, he continued his downward movement, licking into her belly button before descending to her center. He took a moment to admire her sweetness. “Have you ever been kissed here?” 

“Ah. No.” 

“Good. I promise you, you’re going to like it.” 

He licked through her lips and then sucked her clit. She moaned and moved her hips up to press closer to his mouth. She reached down and held his head tight between her legs. “You’re right. I like it.” 

He increased the tempo and added his fingers to increase her pleasure, first one then another. 

She was moaning and writhing in the sheets. “I’m going to come.” 

“Then come.” 

He watched as she let herself go. She was so gorgeous. He rose up to lie next to her, kissing her so she could taste herself, as he had. “Now sleep, Tex.” 

“Aren’t we going to?” She yawned sleepily.


“No, Legs. This was just for you.”

Author Bio


When Maggie Kaye was in college, she and a friend attempted to write their first romance book. They actually never reached the writing part. Mostly, they lay in the sun, brainstormed, laughed, and snacked, typical behavior for young college students with short attention spans.

Maggie went on to earn a teaching credential in special education and a career in teaching. Although they never completed that first book, the desire to tell stories remained with her. Eventually, she took out a writing pen or in her case a notebook computer her hero (husband) bought her to pursue her dreams and wrote the end.

Today, Maggie lives in the Southern California with her husband, two children, and three cats that sometimes share the keyboard with her. She enjoys writing stories with plenty of heart, humor and a bit of steaminess.

Mr. Tucker Synopsis

*Warning: This book contains strong language and graphic sex between a teacher and his consenting student. It's hot and sexy smut at its finest. Mr. Tucker is recommended for mature readers 18 and over.

A senior bet.

Almost every school has one–a tradition that's passed down from year to year. My small school in Tennessee is no different. While some seniors at schools all across the country have senior pranks or senior ditch days, our school has the senior bet. 

Lose your virginity by spring break–have proof–and you're in the running for prom queen.

Does it sound ridiculous?

It absolutely is, but ridiculousness won't stop me from getting my prom queen nomination. I've had plenty of opportunities to lose my V-card to one of the boys at my school, but I don't want to sleep with a high school boy. I want a man with experience. I want the man that's been starring in my wet dreams at night. I want my history teacher. I want Mr. Tucker.

Leave a Mark by Stephanie Fournet Release Blitz!

Friday, April 29, 2016 0 Comments

Title: Leave a Mark
Author: Stephanie Fournet
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing


She’s pierced, and dyed, and covered in tattoos—and she’s everything Dr. Lee Hawthorne wants.




Dyed, pierced, and covered in tattoos, Wren Blanchard is the exact opposite of everything Dr. Lee Hawthorne thought he wanted.
His residency is almost finished. With the perfect job, the beautiful house, and the polished girlfriend, he knows he should be happy, yet he isn’t.
But once Wren lands in his ER with her sharp tongue and artist’s soul, she leaves a mark on him that just won’t fade.
Wren knows the good doctor is way out of her league. To people like him, she’s a circus freak. Besides, she’s not the type to get hung up on guys, especially ones with midnight blue eyes—ones who know all about antiques, crack bad jokes, and love Joss Whedon.
No. She doesn’t need that.
After all, she has friends, a psychotic cat, and a promising career as one of the best tattoo artists in town. And it’s enough.
Really, it is.
Or it would be if Lee weren’t there every time she turned around.
One kiss seals their fate.
Their attraction is undeniable–but Wren’s past is full of ghosts. Is their bond strong enough for a solid future? Or will their new relationship crumble beneath the weight of all she carries?

Wren seethed.
A part of her had been secretly elated to see him again after their morning encounter. This wasn’t an accident. He’d come to her.
But the other part told her she’d be a fool to trust him. He might, indeed, have ended things with Marcelle, but once a cheater, always a cheater. And even if it had just been one kiss, Lee Hawthorne was bad for her. It had been so hard to walk away from him just a few hours ago. And she barely knew him. What would happen if she let him in?
“Well? What do you want?” she snapped, glad that her resentment sounded convincing.
Lee blinked, and Wren held her breath, hoping that the question would be enough to call his bluff. Nobody as buttoned-up as Lee came in and got tattooed on a whim. She crossed her arms and waited, giving him a look of supreme impatience. He’d call it off. She knew he’d call it off.
If he goes through with it, I’ll give him my number.
The moment she placed this bet with herself, Lee reached into his back pocket and drew out his wallet.
“I know what I want.” He opened the brown leather wallet and pulled out an antique brass skeleton key.
“What’s that for?” Wren asked, completely surprised.
One side of Lee’s mouth turned up, but the corners of his eyes angled down just a little. “It was my mother’s.”
She stopped her line of questions right there. The look in his eyes had the power to melt her defenses. It was so far from the cocksure grin he’d worn when he’d declared she’d kissed him back or the amused smile that sat on his lips whenever he was laughing at her. This look was innocent. This was the look of a boy.
Without a word, she held out her hand for the key, and Lee placed it on her palm. It was short, perhaps three inches long with a decorative head and a bit that was notched in the shape of a cross. The head bore three perfect circles just above the shaft with kidney-shaped loops on either side. She could only guess at its age, but it was beautiful, and she knew inherently that the piece it opened had to be beautiful, too.
Wren steeled herself. She could do this. She could let him make his play and be the professional she always was. The key was cool, and it would make a kickass tattoo. And that would give her confidence.
“You want it life-sized?” She glanced back up at him, all business.
He considered the key a moment. “Yes. Just like that.”
“Color or true black?”
Lee’s eyebrows drew together. “What do you think?”
Wren turned the key over in her hand. It was tarnished in places and buffed into a high shine in others.
“If you want it to look just like this, I could do mustard for the brass and platinum for the shadows. And a thin outline in black, of course.”
The left side of Lee’s mouth curled in a grin again, and his eyes danced. “Yeah, that’ll work.”
Wren pulled her eyes away. “Lemme make a copy of this to use as a stencil.” She turned and ducked into Rocky’s office without another word and took her time centering the key on the thermal copier’s glass and loading the feed tray with a sheet of transfer paper. Wren wasn’t about to take any chances with the perfect lines of the key’s shaft and bit. The overhead light in the office was off, and the space was a little cooler, so she drew in a slow breath to calm herself.
When she returned with key and stencil in hand, Lee had sat himself on the end of her table, and Rocky was finishing up with Dallas.
“Okay, doc, where do you want it?” she asked, sounding as detached as she could.
Lee’s eyes narrowed slightly on hers, and he drew a finger up to his chest. “Right here.” His fingertip brushed across his left pec, and Wren had to shift the weight on her feet and concentrate on keeping her expression even. She moved past him and raised the head of her table just a little.
“Okay,” she breathed. “Shirt and tie off. Lie back on the table.”
She turned away to her ink cart and felt her face heat when she heard the whir of silk on silk as he pulled open his tie. She busied herself setting up a fresh razor, her green soap, her alcohol wipes, and gauze. With her sterile scissors, she cut around the stencil and set it aside. Wren laid out two sterile grips, her liner and shader tips, and got her colors ready.
Knowing he’d be shirtless, Wren schooled a bored look on her features before she turned. She met his eyes first, and it would have helped if he’d looked back at her with that smug grin. Feeling pissy was a good defense, and his grin pissed her the hell off.
But the look he gave her was far from it. He lay back, watching her with a mix of wonder and… What was it? Hope? Whatever it was, it made her cheeks burn again.
Review:
Leave a Mark was such an amazing read!!
Everything about this book had me hooked. Wren and Lee had the perfect dynamic for a book couple. They were sassy, smart and sexy. Everything I look for in a good book was included in this one. There was sexy times as well as sweet and sincere moments that made me want to keep flipping the pages to figure out what would happen next.
I highly recommend this novel to everyone!! You will definitely no regret purchasing and reading it.
4/5 Stars!


Okay, so this may be the most unusual playlist ever assembled. This is largely due to the fact that Dr. Lee Hawthorne has both a jukebox and a sense of humor, so why can’t we mix Simon and Garfunkel with a little Pitbull? The Wurlitzer, naturally, only holds 45s, so most of the songs that come up in the novel are much older than Lee and Wren, but I can see Wren punching “Under Pressure” and Lee following with the confidence of Sam and Dave and whimsy of The Police. Lee and Wren both love antiques, after all, so why wouldn’t they share a love of old music? And with as many self-doubts as Wren carries, who else but Hozier would she have on her playlist? The list ends with Diana Krall’s version of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” for obvious reasons. (Make sure you read the Epilogue.)

Beautiful Boy by Leddy Harper captivated me from the very beginning. 
Novah and Nolan were two characters you can't help but fall in love with. They had a connection that was undeniable and incredibly realistic.

Excerpt

Kelleigh swayed as she walked toward the door of her room. She’d had four schooners of beer and was feeling buzzed from the effects of the alcohol. Troy’s enchanting eyes had held her captivated during drinks, even though his attempts at flirting were poor. But hey, she wouldn’t have done any better. She was happy he was talking to her and not running off screaming in the other direction, thinking she was a raving lunatic after her episode yesterday.


She glanced over her shoulder and caught sight of his smoldering sapphire gaze. The way he looked at her made butterflies take flight in her stomach. She tried to recall if this was how Jamie looked at Fran? In reality it was probably the alcohol making her feel this way, but it was nice to think otherwise for a moment. 

She paused at her door and admired Troy’s blond hair, sun-kissed skin and naturally well-muscled physique. Completely opposite to Rodrigo’s dark complexion, protein-powder induced muscles and moisturized baby-soft skin. Completely different to Rodrigo’s not-a-hair-out-of-place appearance. She lowered her eyes; her confidence wavered. Could she do this? Should she be doing this a month after Rodrigo had left? Why not? This was one night. She needed this. Something reckless. Something fun. Something to make her feel like a woman again. One small step toward gaining control back of her life.
