BLOG TOUR WITH EXCERPT: Starry-Eyed Love by Helena Hunting

STARRY-EYED LOVE, an all-new hilarious and heartwarming workplace romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Helena Hunting, is now available!

 

 

Charming, hilarious and emotional, Starry-Eyed Love is Helena Hunting at her very best!

 

 

Having just broken up with her boyfriend, London Spark is not in the mood to be hit on. Especially not when she’s out celebrating her single status with her sisters. So when a very attractive man pays for their drinks and then slips her his number, she passes it right back to him with a ‘thanks, but no thanks’. As the business administrator for their family’s event hotel, the Spark House, London has more important things to worry about, like bringing in new clientele.

As luck would have it, a multi-million-dollar company calls a few months later asking for a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, and London is eager to prove to her sisters, and herself, that she can land this deal. Just when she thinks she has nailed her presentation, the company’s CEO, Jackson Holt, walks in and inserts himself into the meeting. Not only that, but he also happens to be the same guy she turned down at the bar a few months ago.

As they begin to spend more time together, their working relationship blossoms into something more. It isn’t until their professional entanglements are finally over, that London and Jackson are finally ready to take the next step in their relationship. But between Jackson’s secretive past and London’s struggle with her sisters, London must question where she really stands – not just with Jackson, but with the Spark House, too.

EXCERPT:

My stomach does a flip-flop as our server moves on to another table and the hot guy slides across the bench seat and rises. He’s tall, must be over six feet, and lean. Broad shoulders that taper down to a narrow waist. I glance at his feet and notice his scuffed running shoes.

He rolls his shoulders back and crosses over to our table. He nods to my sisters, but doesn’t really look at them, his eyes on me. Now that he’s right in front of me, I notice they’re a deep mossy-green color, reminding me of a Colorado forest. “Hi.” A slow smile forms as his gaze moves over my face.

I feel it like a gentle caress and heat travels through my veins. It’s an unexpected reaction, so my own “hi” comes out rather breathily. “Thank you for the drinks and the food. You really didn’t need to do that.”

His grin widens, showing off perfectly straight, white teeth. “Well, I wanted to make a good impression, and have an excuse to come over and talk to you.”

Harley squeezes my leg under the table. I don’t risk looking at her because I’m sure she’s smiling like a loon.

“You certainly did that. Make a good impression, I mean.” Why am I so awkward right now? And why does it feel like this man is sucking all the oxygen out of the room and turning my brain cells into mush?

That gets me another smile. “I wanted to apologize if it seemed like I was staring. I hope I haven’t made you uncomfortable.”

I touch my fingers to my lips and resist the urge to play with my hair, but just barely. Why does this man make me feel like a starry-eyed high school girl? “You haven’t made me uncomfortable.”

“Good. That’s very good.” His tongue drags across his bottom lip. “I just needed to tell you that from across the room, you were beyond stunning, but up close.” He lets out a low whistle. “You are an absolute work of art.”

I fight with my eyebrows not to rise. This guy has all the lines. “Oh, really?” I lace my fingers together and set my chin on them. “The kind of art you might hang in your living room?”

“Bedroom, actually.”

I laugh. I can’t decide if this guy is too smooth for his own good. Or mine. I have to wonder how many times he’s dropped these lines on other women and they’ve ended up in his bed as a result.

“That sound is music to my ears,” he says, his white-toothed smile still in place. “I knew I’d be kicking myself if I didn’t come over here and at least say hello.” He slides a small piece of paper across the table, roughly the size of a business card. “I’m going to leave my number, and maybe if you’re interested, I can take you out for a drink, or dinner, or a hot air balloon ride.”

I can see exactly where this will go if I take that card from him. And while getting into bed with a random, attractive man might be fun, I know it’s not the right thing for me. Before I can really consider what I’m doing, or fully absorb the last part, I put a hand out to stop him. “I’m very flattered, but I have to be honest with you. I won’t call you. I have a boyfriend.” The lie tastes sour on my tongue. Although, had it been three days earlier, it would have been the truth.

Avery does some kind of cough-choke thing, and I kick her under the table and get Harley on the back swing.

His smile falters for a moment, but he doesn’t break eye contact. “That’s disappointing, but unsurprising. I didn’t see a ring, so I’d hoped maybe luck was on my side.” He tips his head to the side. “Is it serious?”

“Pardon me?”

“You and this boyfriend, are you two serious?”

This guy is unbelievable. “And if we are?”

“Hmm.” He withdraws his hand and slips the paper in his pocket. “I’d hate for karma to pass judgment on me and get in the way of our future together, so I’m just going to hope I run into you again when you’re single. Have a lovely night, ladies.” He nods to my sisters and gives me one final lingering glance before he winks. “Thank you for existing.”

And then he walks away.

RELEASE BLITZ: Royal by Rebel Shaw

ROYAL, an angsty, steamy, forbidden romance from Rebel Shaw, is available now!

 

 

Falling for the nanny isn’t my style…but neither was becoming a single dad overnight.

 

 

Finn

Falling for the nanny isn’t my style…but neither was becoming a single dad overnight.

When my three-year-old niece, Hadley, needs a guardian, I fill the role and need a nanny. Stat. What I get instead is London Ashford—an infuriating redhead who tempts me at every turn.

The harder I push, the more she pushes back. I’m someone used to calling the shots, and her insubordination should irritate me; instead, it turns me on.

My nightclub isn’t going to run itself, so I have to harness my desire for her and let her do her job—so I can do mine.

London

Finnegan Royal is charming, gorgeous, and an insufferable asshole. Not exactly my type…not that it matters. He’s my new boss.

But watching a powerful businessman like Finn be brought to his knees by his toddler niece makes me feel all kinds of things I shouldn’t.

Named one of Chicago’s most eligible bachelors, he owns the hottest club in town and can have any woman he wants, but he has his sights set on me. The nanny.

The beautiful little girl has stolen my heart, but I have no doubt her arrogant uncle would break it if given the chance. So why can’t I stay away?

SYNOPSIS:

Finn

Falling for the nanny isn’t my style…but neither was becoming a single dad overnight.

REVIEW:

I’m a long-time reader of Lacey Black’s, and I’ve really enjoyed her collaborations with Kaylee Ryan so it was a given that I’d be reading their work under the Rebel Shaw pen name. This author duo is wonderfully matched. Their writing is seamless and crisp, full of wit, emotion and humor and their stories are romantic and full of charming, endearing characters.

Finnegan Royal is a successful club owner. He’s charismatic and as alpha as they come, but his world is turned upside when the unthinkable happens. Suddenly thrust in the role of guardian to his three year old niece, he needs help fast, and he finds it in the nanny he hires, London Ashford. London is a natural caregiver, and the perfect fit to help with Finn’s adorable little niece, Hadley. She’s also got an independent streak, and where Finn is the strong, silent type, she’s not afraid to speak her mind.

I love single dad romances, and Rebel Shaw debuted with a wonderful story featuring a twist on that trope. Royal was an unputdownable love story full of heart-tugging emotion and blistering hot chemistry wrapped up in a beautiful romance. Five smooches from me for Royal by Rebel Shaw!

REVIEW:

An enemies-to-lovers, fake date romance full of opposites-attract vibes, Renegade Roomie by Lila Monroe was a quick, devour-it-in-a-day read. Lila’s the queen of the romcom, and this light-hearted sexy romance was heavy on the comedy, high on the heat and an all-around pleasure to read.

Dash, a trust fund billionaire, needs a girlfriend fast. His grandmother, Zelda, thinks it’s high time that Dash settle down, and Dash has to convince her he’s on board with that plan. Enter Callie, who needs funding to get her cosmetics company off the ground. From their meet-rude first encounter through the bickering and squabbling filled weekend at Zelda’s, Dash and Callie’s chemistry burned off the charts. But when the fake starts feeling real, Dash and Callie need to decide if they can make it work or just walk away.

Renegade Roomie was a lot of fun, and it had its fair share of heart-string pulling moments. Plenty of endearing side characters, a sweet and sexy romance, and an amusing trope-tastic storyline, this was a cute, charming and very entertaining way to spend the day. Renegade Roomie by Lila Monroe gets four smooches from me!

EXCERPT:

She sat across from him at his breakfast table in the conservatory, the beams of the sun gilding her hair, her face aimed to the windows, watching the birds at their bath.

He was dressed, but she was wrapped in his dressing gown. It was too big for her. But it was all they had for the now as he refused to button her into a gown she’d worn just the day before. He’d sent word to Corliss to have her maid, her apparel and her toilette directed to his townhome so she could face the day fresh, preparing to do so there.

More importantly, this also meant he got to keep her longer.

“Stop watching me,” she told the window. “It’s ridiculously romantic. I’m melting in a puddle over here.”

He grinned at his coffee cup, his attention remaining on her over the rim as he took a sip.

She turned in the midst of this, watched his actions, and her gaze heated yet again.

“You’re a walking, talking, eating, drinking-coffee, sex-god hero from a romance novel,” she groused.

“I love you think that, though I’m perplexed as to why this seems to put you in a foul mood,” he noted, returning his cup to its saucer.

“I can’t jump you over the table due to your injury, that’s why,” she explained.

He raised a brow. “Did I not prove my creativity this morning?”

“The bit where you were on your knees could have torn your stitches.”

The tone of her response communicated she was now being very serious.

“Again, darling, I’m fine,” he said in the same tone.

“How worried should I be about this bordello woman you’ve angered?” she asked.

And there it was.

“You shouldn’t worry at all.”

“Loren—”

REVIEW:

I’m a huge Kristen Ashley fan, and her Fantasyland series is one of my all-time top favorite series and one that I reread often. I take any chance that I can to slip back into that world, especially on the very rare occasion when new material is offered up for a series that was complete. For us diehard KA fans, Gossamer in the Darkness, a 1001 Dark Nights novella, is a chance to head back to this fantastical world and spend time with these otherworld aristocrats. For a reader new to Kristen Ashley’s Fantasyland world, this is a chance to dip your toe in this parallel universe and get a feel for the vibe of this series and these characters. It’s a chance to test the waters before diving in to read the whole series. Something, by the way, that I wholeheartedly recommend to every romance reader.

Gossamer in the Darkness was richly suspenseful and full of quirky, interesting characters. In the midst of all of this intrigue blossomed a beautiful romance under the most unbelievable of circumstances. It was sexy and romantic, addictive and unputdownable, and for me, it was the chance to return to a favorite series through fresh characters and a new story, and I loved it. Five smooches from me for Gossamer in the Darkness by Kristen Ashley!

RELEASE BLITZ WITH EXCERPT: Rattle Some Cages by Lani Lynn Vale

RATTLE SOME CAGES, an all-new MC romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Lani Lynn Vale, is available now!

Scroll down for an excerpt!

 

 

Price Crow first saw Sabrina Proctor in the middle of a hurricane…

 

 

It’s not every day that you see a dead body at the beach. Or the woman of your dreams sitting next to that dead body.

Price Crow first saw Sabrina Proctor in the middle of a hurricane.

She’d been sitting next to her dead best friend, who’d passed away on the beach, with no way to get her back home, thanks to the world’s worst luck, and one hell of a storm.

So Price does what any decent person would do: he carries Sabrina’s dead best friend to their beach house and doesn’t leave her side until he’s forced to.

He had every intention of bridging that gap, of checking up on her and making sure she was okay, but life is funny and has a way of making a mockery of the best-laid plans.

Despite one hell of a connection, under the worst of circumstances, they go their separate ways. At least, he tries to. But he can’t stop thinking about her, and it becomes apparent, very fast, that he has a decision to make.

Choose Sabrina, or live out the rest of his life making everyone else around him happy except for himself.

EXCERPT:

 

I swallowed hard. “Do you think you can make it up those stairs?”

There was a long pause and then, “No.”

I felt my heart sink.

I wasn’t super strong.

As in, there was no way I was getting Faye up those stairs on my own.

“I need to call someone for help,” I told her softly. “I won’t be able to do it on my own.”

She mumbled something I couldn’t quite hear, and that’s when I knew that this was going to be worse than I thought.

Like, so much worse.

I started looking around, knowing what I would find.

No one.

It was the peak season. There should be people everywhere, but the hurricane had scared off most renters this week. They were suggesting evacuation, but Faye wanted to see the beach and I was determined to make it happen.

Looking around, I saw no one. There literally wasn’t anyone dumb enough to be there at that moment in time.

Yet, there I was.

I spotted a beach chair leaning against the bottom of the house, along with some sand toys, as well as fishing poles.

“I can get you to a beach chair underneath the house,” I said confidently. “Stay right here. I’ll go get it set up.”

She had no choice.

She practically lay along the stairs, her head resting on the one I’d nearly hit my face on, and lifted two fingers.

She didn’t say a word, though, which scared me even more.

Swallowing past the lump that seemed permanently lodged in my throat, I hurried down the length of the walkway that headed around the house.

There, I spotted more chairs, which included a long lounge chair—one of those zero-gravity chairs—that I knew would work well for Faye.

Getting it set up so that she could see the beach from where I stuck her—where she probably wouldn’t be moving for a while until I could find someone to help me get her up the stairs—I ran back for Faye.

I found her in the same spot, unmoving, staring at the beach through the risers of the stairs.

I had to admit, the place I chose had a beautiful view.

“Ready?” I asked carefully.

Her eyes, dull and lifeless, moved to me.

“I want to feel the sand between my toes,” she whispered.

I felt the tears start to come then. “I’ll get you out there, boo.”

Faye, at hearing my term of endearment for her, smiled.

“Thanks, boo.” She coughed.

I struggled to get her down the length of the house and into the chair that was covered by the floor above. Once she was where I thought best for her, I grabbed a bucket from the kids’ play toys that were lined along the house and walked out to the beach and filled it with sand.

I’d been to the beach before.

It’d always been my favorite place to come.

And knowing that Faye had never been broke my heart.

It broke it even more that she was here and couldn’t enjoy it.

Gathering my bucket of sand, I headed back toward the house, sweating my balls off the entire way.

I did see one lone figure off in the distance while I was out there, though.

Once I had my girl’s toes in the sand, I would be walking down there and seeing if the man was physically fit enough to help me get Faye inside.

Once I had the bucket where I needed it, I twisted both of Faye’s cute little feet off the side of the chair, and then sank them into the sand, covering them up well.

“What do you think?” I asked her.

There was a small smile on her face, but she didn’t open her eyes.

“The best,” she whispered.

I swallowed hard. “Do you think I should contact the hospice here now? Your doctor and my dad seemed to think that it would be best to do it ASAP.”

“I can hear the ocean,” she whispered, ignoring my question. “It sounds spectacular.”

It did.

The waves were roaring today.

There was a rather large disturbance in the gulf that was well on its way to becoming a hurricane. I wasn’t sure when it was going to start becoming typical hurricane weather, but I was bringing Faye to the beach regardless.

They expected it to hit tomorrow. But ahead of it was a lot of wind and a lot of rain.

Which sucked for Faye because that meant that she’d be stuck inside unless she wanted to get wet.

Which I didn’t think was such a good idea.

“I don’t want to call them,” she whispered. “I just want to die, right here, without being poked or prodded.”

The damn tears started again.

“Pull up a chair.” She paused. “Or better yet, pull me out there.”

She opened her eyes for that comment, letting me know with a single look that she was serious.

I groaned. “You know I’m a wimp. How am I supposed to get you out there on my own?”

She just smiled, the smile nowhere near reaching her eyes.

“I don’t want you to go,” I whispered, thinking she couldn’t hear.

But she did. “I don’t want to leave you but… I want to go.”
