Excerpt:

 

“We ate at the hotel.” Her lips twisted to the side. “Mind if I stick some stuff in my bag for later?”

A tiny wrinkle formed between Ian’s eyes, just below the long sweep of his black bangs. “There will be lots of food available later too. But…” he shrugged, leaning forward and resting his elbows on his knees “…take whatever you want.”

Jersey glanced over her shoulder at the food and the three other men in the room. She decided to wait a little while before shoving as much as possible into her bag like a free-for-all. “Thanks.” Jersey returned her attention to Ian. “So … you’re a singer. Like … are you a big deal?”

Every word she spoke seemed to feed his level of happiness. “Well …” He rubbed his chin, twisting his lips. “We play music. People like to listen to our music. But no … it’s not a big deal. We’re not saving lives or anything like that.”

She eyed him with suspicion for a few seconds. That smile of his didn’t feel worthy of complete trust. “Um … what exactly do you need me to do? What’s my job? They already took Chris. Will that big, bearded guy come for me too?” Jersey couldn’t remember his name.

“No.” Ian stood, pushing his elbows out from his shoulders, twisting side to side. “Tonight you are just going to watch the concert from backstage. Tomorrow night you’ll sell merchandise.”

“Drugs. You mean drugs, don’t you?”

Ian paused his stretching, letting his arms fall limp to his sides. “Merchandise—T-shirts, posters, keychains, phone cases, hats, guitar pics …”

“To who?”

“Fans.” Ian grinned. “Okay. I might have understated all of this to you … can you name a famous singer? Old or new. Doesn’t matter. Just a famous singer.”

“I had a foster parent who used to listen to Josh Groban.” Jersey gnashed her teeth, still feeling so much anger. Dena wasn’t just a foster parent; she was Jersey’s friend.

“Okay. Well, Josh has sold millions of records, and he’s a huge star in his genre of music. Thousands of people pack venues all over the world to see him sing live in concert. And they sell merchandise of his at those concerts.”

Jersey gazed unblinkingly at Ian as he scratched his jaw.

“Well, I sing a different genre of music, but I, too, travel the world, singing to sold-out concert venues, andI have people who sell my merchandise at these concerts.”

Jersey dropped her bag to her feet and planted her fists on her hips. “Listen, Coop. Stop talking down to me. I’m not an idiot. I know what a concert is. But earlier today you didn’t say what you did or what the job was you were offering. You bought a homeless person a hot dog and offered her a job. Of course, I’m going to think something sketchy might be involved.”

Tipping her chin up, she held her breath to puff out her chest, pretending the recent revelation of Ian Cooper being a famous singer didn’t faze her one bit. Inside, Jersey’s heart hammered into her ribcage, and her mind reeled trying to figure out the day’s events.

“Coop?” His lips twitched into a tiny grin.

“It’s short for Cooper.”

“Clearly.” Ian chuckled. “But my name is Ian. Everyone calls me Ian.”

“I busted the nose and jaw of a kid named Ian. He tried to stick his cock in my ass. I’ll call you Tom, Dick, or Harry, but I’m not calling you Ian because that makes me want to physically harm you.”

Ian’s eyebrows shot up his forehead as his head whipped back a few inches. “Coop it is.”

Trade In by AJ Alexander

TRADEIN_ECOVERAgainst all odds, first love gets a second chance at forever…
And you can read an excerpt below from Trade In by AJ Alexander … out on June 6!

BLURB:
Against all odds, first love gets a second chance at forever…

Rachael
They say you never forget your first love. They would be right, I’ve got the scars on my heart to prove it. The more time that passes, the more I convince myself I’m over him. Instead of wasting time crying, I focus on my unlikely new career choice as a motorcycle mechanic. I may not be able to repair the damage Liam left behind, but I can make a bike like new.
When he wanders back into my life, my old flame lights a brand new fire. I shouldn’t still want him… but I do.

Liam
The people I serve may be toasting to remember or sipping to forget… but I’m drowning in regret for walking away from the girl I loved.  It was for the best, or at least that’s what I keep telling myself, until I see her again. Rachael’s eyes are filled with the same sadness I’ve been carry around. I thought I was saving her from more hurt. Turns out, I was wrong.
Now that we’ve been given a second chance, I’m determined not to waste it.  I just have to swallow my pride and tell her… the truth.

Excerpt

RACHAEL
The sincerity in Liam’s eyes breaks my heart. I don’t want to believe a word he’s saying. I want to keep my heart hardened to him, but he’s still the only man I have ever loved. Maybe my Fairy God Fathers are right, that his reason for leaving wasn’t purely selfish. I take a deep breath before answering.

“Fine. I’ll give you a chance to redeem yourself, but I make no promises. Step even the slightest bit out of line and I’m back with Paul in a heartbeat,” I smile hoping to see fear pass across Liam’s face, but instead he begins to laugh.

“What the fuck are you laughing at? I can tell this is already a joke to you.”

“Oh, Roo, the things you will go through to win my heart. There is no need for games. My heart will always be yours,” he coos.

“Don’t patronize me, asshole. If your heart was mine, you never would have left me!” I shout before I slide back from the table. “If you’ll excuse me for a minute.” I don’t even wait for his response before I push back from the chair and head toward the bathroom.

“I knew this was a bad fucking idea. Being around him is nothing but trouble. He makes my brain short-circuit or something,” I mumble to myself as I push the bathroom door open and pull my cell out of my pocket. I hit the speed dial button for Michael and listen to it ring.

“Bitch! You promised you would answer the phone if I called.” Hanging up the phone, I dial Paul.

“What can we do for you?” Paul answers the phone on the first ring

“Where the fuck is Michael?” I shout in the phone.

“Dorothy what’s wrong. He’s right here. He just missed you call, you called me before he could call you back.”

I mutter hoping that no one is in any of the surrounding stalls. “I’m freaking the fuck out. I can’t do this. He has already kissed me once and is spouting off how much he loves me and shit. I’m now hiding out in the damn bathroom!”

“Hold on honey, I’m putting you on speaker.” I tap my foot on the bathroom tiles as I wait for Michael to chime in. “Okay, go. Make it quick we don’t want to keep lover boy waiting.”

I take a deep breath and give them a condensed recount of what has happened since I arrived a short time ago. “I want to leave. This was a bad idea, I’m just going to tell him this isn’t going to work and be done with it. I don’t care about the truth. I just got my shit together, I’m not ready to be broken again.”

“Listen up sweet cheeks, you still have the hots for Liam. Here is what you’ll do. You’re going to fix your makeup, go back out there, and show him what a badass you are.”

“Yeah, the badass that got upset and ran to the bathroom.”

“Bitch, please. Do you know how many women have to give themselves a pep talk? You’re not that special,” Michael says.

“Just tell your inner bitch to come out and let him have it. She will take the reins and give him a run for his money, don’t you worry.”

“Thank you, Paul. Time to put on my big girl panties and handle business.”

Cover Reveal -Undeniable by Melanie Harlow

 

Undeniable, an all-new stand-alone sexy second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is coming May 20th and we have the gorgeous cover!

 

When we were eleven, Oliver Ford Pemberton dared me to jump off a barn roof. He said you couldn’t break a leg from a 12-foot-jump.

 

He lied.

 

(You can also break a collarbone, which served him right as far as I was concerned.)

 

I wish I could say it was the last dare I ever took from him, the last bet I ever made with him, the last time I ever trusted Oliver Ford Pemberton.

 

But it wasn’t.

 

Because he had the nerve to grow up gorgeous, charming, and sexy. And as we got older, the dares only got dirtier—and the betting stakes higher—until finally, he left me in pieces. I swore I’d never talk to him again.

 

But twenty years after I took that flying leap, he’s back in my life, daring me to risk everything for him: my job, my self-worth, and my heart.

 

How many chances does true love deserve?

TheIrishCowboy_Standard

Blurb​:

The Kearney Brothers from Ireland are riding into Bear Creek … and into your heart!

 

Tessa Mandel

The catcalls and whistles get old, but cowboys are a necessary evil when you work at the Bear Creek Rodeo. While rodeo life isn’t for me, it’s the only thing supporting my secret side career. I live a double life, but I know my dream of returning to the big city is close to becoming reality. If being an orphan has taught me anything, it’s that you can’t count on anyone but yourself. Working for the rodeo brings many distractions and I can’t afford the complications that come with sliding between the sheets with a smooth talker in tight jeans and a cowboy hat. I have big plans for myself and none of them include being charmed by any of these cowboy Casanovas.

 

But then I meet the infamous Rhett Kearney, who makes my stomach flutter by just saying my name. One kiss from his gorgeous Irish lips turn my world upside down and my panties inside out.

My timeline doesn’t include falling for a handsome cowboy… but it might be too late for that.

Rhett Kearney

As one of the top bronc riders in the world, I’m no stranger to hard work that draws out blood, sweat and tears. Every time I leave Ireland to compete, I feel the weight of my birthright square on my shoulders, but nothing compares to the roar of a crowd when I climb onto that bucking horse, riding it as hard as I can for those eight seconds. The goal has always been the same — compete in US National Rodeo Finals and make as much money as I can. It’s a race against time, as age is not your friend when you are a professional cowboy. So I don’t waste my time chasing skirts and getting tangled up with a pretty face who’s looking for her next meal ticket out of town.

But I couldn’t prepare myself for the sassy Tessa Mandel or the punch to the gut when I see her beautiful baby blue eyes flare with desire, making me want to risk it all for one more taste of her honeysuckle kisses.

 

I didn’t travel halfway around the world to lose. I’m taking home my grand prize… she just doesn’t know it’s her yet.   

 

Bear Creek Rodeo is a series of contemporary love stories written by bestselling authors Jennifer D. Bokal, Amy L. Gale, Sara Jolene, Jessica Marin and Kirsten Osbourne.
