Sometimes love can throw curve balls.

Eden’s been burned (not unlike her ex’s abandoned crap) and isn’t ready to try dating again. She lives vicariously through her co-worker’s sex life, all while veering dangerously close to being the next cat lady who has sworn off men.

When Eden stumbles (quite literally) into the life of professional baseball player, Robert “Bobby” King, more than spilled beers will get in their way.

Bobby has had a handful of one night stands and realizes he won’t find love with someone he finds leaning against the locker room door. With his focus on healing his recent knee injury and keeping his name in the game, Bobby never imagines he’d be fighting for the girl of his dreams, too.

With constant mishaps and miscommunications, and spring training around the corner, can Bobby and Eden win the game of love?

Bobby's POV excerpt:

The radio started blasting when she fired the ignition. Her cheeks turned red as she rushed to turn it down or off or to another station.

“What was that?”

“You’ve never heard of Justin Timberlake? Are you too cool for him?”

“That was not Justin Timberlake.”

“Yes, it was.”

“If you say so.” Here’s the thing, I knew it was Justin Timberlake, but it was also the other guys he was in the boy band with. It wasn’t cool and manly for me to know that, so I bit my tongue.

“It was *NSync,” she let it out in a rush, like she couldn’t contain it any more. It made me smile, especially when she kept talking. “I am not ashamed. They are the best boy band who ever lived. Don’t come at me with talk about Backstreet Boys or One Direction either. It’s nonsense. As far as I’m concerned, the only groups who come close to their level of awesomeness are The Beatles and The Jackson 5. But they were both a bit before my time.”

I smiled and waited, hoping her passionate rant would continue. The look on her face when I admitted I agreed with her would be worth it if she felt like she’d somehow earned my compliance on the issue. These were the fun conversations we were good at having.

“What? Do you have another group in mind?” Her gaze left the road for a second to turn to me, so I straightened my face. I didn’t want to let her in on my secret just yet. Plus, I wanted to see how she’d go on.

“There are plenty of groups out there. There’s New Edition, 98 Degrees, New Kids on the Block, and Boyz II Men to name a few. But none of them compare to Justin, Chris, Joey, Lance, and JC. None of them.”

A huff of air came out before I replied, “Oh yeah? What about those long-haired gods, Hanson, who played their own instruments? And who else could make a song called MmmBop popular? Now that’s talent. Or, speaking of talent, what about the Jonas Brothers? Those purity-ring wearing momma’s boys were even in some movies! Real star power with those ones.”

“You know far too much to pretend you didn’t know that was *NSync. You’re a huge fan, aren’t you?” She was laughing at my pseudo-rant.

“No! I mean, yes, but you know, it’s JT.” I laughed along with her. “Not as big as you evidently, but I do love your passion.”

“Well, I can’t hide it, so you’d better get used to it. It is what it is.” When she looked at me at the red light, I let her see my smile. The charming one I couldn’t hold back from those people I actually enjoyed being around.

“Can I hear the song you were jamming out to?”

She smiled back and hit play, letting Tearin’ Up My Heart blast.

Cover & Excerpt Reveal + #Giveaway - Hidden Paradise - by A.M. Guilliams @AM_Guilliams #contemporary #romance

Release Date: April 18, 2018
Cover Design: Annelle Willard


I’ve never been the type of woman to have a casual fling. But after a fight with my boss that ended in a forced vacation and one too many drinks in the hotel bar, I found myself enjoying the company of a man who went by the name of Thorn.

A man whose accent I couldn’t quite place and whose black eyes could command anyone to do anything he desired.

We had seven days to enjoy each other.

Seven days of no commitments, no worries of the future, and no personal details to share.

Only, I returned with more than just memories and a few stolen photographs.

Too bad we only agreed to share our first names.


“What brings you to Bora Bora?”

“A forced vacation,” I said with slight annoyance in my voice.

“Someone had to force you to come to this beautiful island. Damn, that’s a shame,” he said.

“Under normal circumstances, no. But I have too much work to do to take this impromptu vacation my boss forced me to take,” I admitted, wondering why I was telling a stranger the insanity known as my current situation.

“Ah, so you’re one of those types.”

I was about to ask him a question in response when the bartender came back with our drinks. Mine was a blue fruity concoction, I assumed based on the umbrella coming out of the top, and he had what appeared to be bourbon on the rocks in his glass.

“To fun in the sun,” he said as he brought his glass to meet mine.

“And what type would that be?” I asked after taking a sip of the delicious drink in my hand. I could taste the rum but couldn’t tell what other flavors assaulted my senses.

“All work and no play,” he replied as he moved the drink around in his glass before bringing it to his lips. I watched the liquid enter his mouth and his Adam’s apple move as he swallowed the amber liquid. His tongue moved across his full lips as he got the remnants of the alcohol off.

Damn, Lily. Get a fucking grip.

He chuckled as he sat the glass down, and I knew I’d been caught, yet again, checking him out. I needed to find a way to hide that better. And fast. Before he realized just how much he affected me and used it to his advantage.

I neither admitted nor denied his claim. No matter which answer I gave, he knew the truth. Somehow, he could sense the truth. And I loved and hated that he could.

Picking up my drink, I downed the rest of its contents and waved the bartender over to order another. The more alcohol the better in my opinion. I’d need it to gain the courage to stay in the company of the exotic stranger sitting next to me.

More questions passed with me only giving him vague answers about my line of work and life back home. I wasn’t ready to reveal any personal information. I’d likely never see him again after tonight since I didn’t plan on leaving that damn bungalow until it was time for me to go home unless it was for food. Leaving meant running into sexy strangers, and my body couldn’t handle another repeat of the man sitting next to me.

The contents of the second drink went straight to my head, and I felt dizzy the instant I went to stand to excuse myself to the restroom.

“Looks like you love falling all over me tonight,” he joked as he caught me from falling yet again.

“Seems that way,” I replied as I tried to gain my bearings.

“Want to get out of here?” he asked.

I didn’t know how to answer.

Did I want to leave with him?

Should I leave with him was the better question?

To hell with it.

This time I listened to my body and not my brain.

With liquid courage, I nodded and let him lead me out of the bar.

Once we got to the entrance, he turned and faced me.

“With one condition,” he urged, heat filling his eyes as he glared down at me.

I looked up at him the best I could without the alcohol running to my head and waited for him to tell me what the condition was.

“Your name, beautiful,” he whispered as he dropped my hand and brought his up to frame my face.

I swallowed hard at the intensity of his gaze.

One look and I was done.

Another word and I was finished.

I was putty in his hands as I leaned into him.

“Lily,” I forced out of my mouth without my gaze leaving his.

“More beautiful than any flower I’ve ever seen,” he whispered as his lips caressed my forehead. I closed my eyes and held back the whimper that wanted to escape.

I didn’t know what he was doing to me, but I couldn’t wait to find out.

Turning back toward the exit, he grabbed my hand again and headed in the direction of the unknown.

This was the craziest thing I’d ever done in my life, and no matter how hard my brain tried to intervene I didn’t let it. I let the sexy man in front of me lead me off into the unknown. Consequences be damned.

Nathan Davenport is being stalked by Isabella Ravini, the feral vampire who stole his human life over a hundred and sixty years ago. She made him her fledging, a slave for her dark, evil purposes-hunting humans.
After a few years she released him, and Nathan reluctantly learned to
accept the cursed life she'd foisted upon him.

Over time he amassed a great fortune, which today has made him famous worldwide. Isabella decides she wants to be a part of this world of fame and fortune Nathan created for himself. She's determined to

marry him, and love has nothing to do with it. His money is her primary target, and the fame and prestige attached to being the wife of one of the richest men in the world wouldn't be so bad either.

In an effort to evade her until he can figure out how to stop her, he

hides at a safe house he owns in New Orleans. One Saturday evening in
NOLA, he decides to have dinner in the city. He chooses a quiet little Italian bistro, never imagining this night will change his life forever.

Nathan's reputation as a playboy. So Nathan enchants her, feeds from
her, but his lusts for her blood and body play havoc with his thinking.

Nathan finds a way to bring her into his life as his personal chef and

quickly falls in love with her. The trouble is Mia has no idea he's a
vampire because during the enchanting episodes, Nathan blocked her
memories of those sensual encounters.

How will Nathan tell her the truth without losing her and keep Isabella

from finding him? Or worst yet, will Isabella discover how much Mia
has come to mean to him?

Release Blitz - Wet Kisses: A Zodiac Shifter Romance: Pisces - by Susan Griscom @SusanGriscom #Shifter #Romance

Title: Wet Kisses - A Zodiac Shifter Romance - Pisces
Author: Susan Griscom
Genre: Shifter Romance
Cover Designer: Raven Blackburn
Publication Date: March 20th, 2018
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR


Adrian Marlowe is a dolphin-shifter who can shift into a dragon, a new and dangerous development to his shifter abilities. Now he’s gone from wealthy CEO to man on a mission: Figure out how to tame the dragon before it destroys him.

Landing the job as the new project manager in charge of the interior design of Waterscape’s new underwater hotel is Reese Briden’s dream job come true. Until she meets the sexy CEO and escaping the sexual tension that arises between them becomes impossible. Adrian could be the perfect lover. Except for one flaw. Well, maybe it’s not really a flaw, more of an inconvenience, because he is her boss.

Reese is feisty, beautiful and confident, and she might even be Adrian’s mate, except…she doesn’t know about the dragon. Now he has to decide whether to reveal himself or risk losing both her and his corporation. However, he just might lose himself if he lets the dragon consume him.

 Award winning, bestselling author, Susan Griscom writes paranormal and contemporary romance - steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She's a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She loves those days when she gets to sit around in her yoga pants, doing nothing but day dreaming about the sexy heroes she writes about and writing emotionally charged stories about love and romance.

She lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she spends a lot of time day dreaming when she's not writing. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by and she visits them as often as possible. Together, she and her romantic husband have five great superhero kids and eight mini-superhero grand kids, so far

I almost wished the woman standing before me was about twenty years older. A woman with short, gray hair. Maybe somebody’s beloved grandmother.

I didn’t want her to be the beautiful creature I’d been thinking about for the past two days, ever since I’d steered her toward the boat she’d fallen from. Though, now that I’d found her, I couldn’t ignore the chemistry igniting between us. Yes, I felt it. Had she? The fact that I knew her, that she was in my employment should deter my desires, but it was difficult to ignore her stunning green gaze, or the slight upward curve to her heart-shaped lips that not only made her look friendly, but sexy, or the way her silky auburn curls flowed over her shoulders, dipping into the opening of the front of her turquoise blouse. I imagined the silky strands tickling the cleavage of her breasts and I was suddenly jealous of those curls. I liked that she was tall enough that her lips would meet mine easily without having to stand on her tippy toes. I sighed, remembering the vision of her standing on the edge of the boat, her hair dripping, her clothes wet and clinging to each and every voluptuous curve on her body. The sea dragon within me shifted with amusement and caused a flutter in my stomach. He wanted me to take her on the tan leather sofa to my right. He wanted to find out how good she tasted, even though I knew keeping my dick in my pants was the better choice here.

At least for the time being.

Now Available - The latest installment to the haunting Lustful Possession Series + a Cover Reveal

Still breaking all the romance rules...

When last we visited the Lustful Possession Series it had take a sudden medieval time-travel twist, in The Fall of Cairnnon Castle

Well we're back in the present now and the LP saga has taken a surprise m/m twist.

Stay tuned until the end of this post for the Cover Reveal of the 5th book in the LP Series, Dark Seed...

Rising From the Darkness 
warning: Part 4 has an m/m pairing

This book was previously published. It has been re-edited, re-formatted, and re-released.

When mired in the darkness, seek the light…

Against his mother’s wishes, Mishel Hewes decides to accompany his uncle Arnie Rollison on his yearly sabbatical to Ireland. It’s not a pleasure trip by any means, but a journey to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the day that Cairnnon Castle fell.

Once in Ireland, the pair find that Castle Cairnnon is being resurrected at an alarming rate, by some unknown benefactor. And Arnie’s first concern is for the body of his young intern who was buried when the Castle toppled a quarter of a century before.

Hoping to provide some solace for his adoptive uncle, Mish gets himself hired on the construction crew, which isn’t a hardship with all the ripped workmen around. However, once inside the creepy stronghold, Mish is plagued by the same strange phenomenon that had once threatened his father, on the ill-fated trip many years before. Sick and suffering from the horrible effects of Cairnnon’s infamous elemental, Mish falls to his knees convinced he is at death’s door. What he finds instead can only be described as a miracle. Or perhaps one blessing is just another curse.

Warning: This collection of short stories contains m/f and m/m couplings and cliff-hangers. Installments must be read in order.


Joel snorted. “We’ll see.” He took a large swallow of his beer, then picked up one of the shot glasses. “Startin’ now.” Joel poured the whiskey on top of the creamy liqueur and then dropped the entire jigger into his pint. Without pause, he picked it up, gave a silent salute, then chugged the contents. He wiped his mouth with the back of his hand as he slammed the glass onto the tabletop. With an evil grin, he challenged, “Your turn.” 

Mish mixed the whiskey and Irish Cream, then sank it to the bottom of the beer. He picked it up and stared at the concoction. 

“Ya’d better get after it before it curdles. Tha’s no’ wha’ 
you want,” Joel advised, his Irish dialect coming out stronger. It was damn sexy, too. 

Inhaling deep first, Mish then downed the blend, beyond his better judgment. With a trembling hand he set the glass on the table. 

“Yeow!” he exclaimed when he could breathe again. 

Joel chuckled, and the sound went straight through Mish. “Now, in about three minutes you’ll be more relaxed, and we can get to know each other better.” Joel signaled to Quin at the bar. 

Mish cleared his throat. “Do you like working at the Cairnnon site?” He was already feeling warmth spreading throughout his body from the alcoholic concoction. 

“Yeah, I guess. It’s work.” 

“So who is it you work for? I heard the place was bought by some unknown buyer.” 

“You know, if I didn’t know better, I would think you were some kinda reporter or somethin’.” Mish recoiled. 

“A reporter?” 

“Yeah, you show up 'ere in Ireland, seekin’ short term work, and askin’ way too many questions.” 

For some reason, Mish felt guilty. He scrambled for something to say while Quin dropped off another pint each. 

As soon as the bartender was out of earshot, Joel turned in Mish’s direction, even bringing one leg up onto the bench seat between them. He took Mish by the shoulders and peered deep into his eyes. “Why would I bring you onto my work site? What are ya up ta, Mishel Hewes?” 

Without thought, Mishel poured out the entire story, and when he was finished he wondered what the fuck had compelled him to do such a thing. 

But to his delight the other man’s features softened, and Mish was lost in his gaze. He wanted nothing more than to taste the other man’s lips and to intensify the situation. 

Unexpectedly, Joel smoothed his thumb over Mish’s mouth. 

“Hmmm, me, too.” Joel grinned as if he could hear Mish’s thoughts. Joel picked up his beer. “Now, was that so hard?” 

No, but something else is uncomfortably firm. 

Joel snorted. 

Mishel shook his head. He actually had to fist his hands under the table. He was on the verge of doing something crazy.
