NEW RELEASE EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: Indecent Exposure (The Academy Series) by Tessa Bailey

Is there a problem, Officer?

Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .

Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.

Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

Excerpt

“One kiss.”

He takes a step forward, his big chest rising and falling. “I know I’m pushing it, Snaps. But I’m dying over here.”

I’m dying, too. No denying it. This attraction is very bad for my mental and physical health. He probably won’t even show up tomorrow night. His romantic comedy costar will distract him with an invitation to eat grapes on a sun- drenched rooftop somewhere and I . . . I could never get another chance to kiss this outrageously beautiful man. This trip to New York isn’t only a career opportunity, it’s a chance to shake off my comfort zone.

Do it, Katie. Don’t regret it. Don’t be a coward. What’s the worst that could happen?

“Just one, then,” I whisper.

His green eyes go molten as he takes two big strides and swoops in. I hear my backpack hit the ground and then nothing, nothing, but Jack’s mouth has any part of my focus.

What’s the worst that could happen?

About Tessa Bailey

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

NEW RELEASE EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: The Trouble With True Love by Laura Lee Guhrke

Dear Lady Truelove, I am a girl of noble family, but I am painfully shy, especially in my encounters with those of the opposite sex . . .

For Clara Deverill, standing in for the real Lady Truelove means dispensing advice on problems she herself has never managed to overcome. There’s nothing for it but to retreat to a tearoom and hope inspiration strikes between scones. It doesn’t—until Clara overhears a rake waxing eloquent on the art of “honorable” jilting. The cad may look like an Adonis, but he’s about to find himself on the wrong side of Lady Truelove.

Rex Galbraith is an heir with no plans to produce a spare. He flirts with the minimum number of eligible young ladies to humor his matchmaking aunt, but Clara is the first to ever catch his roving eye. When he realizes that Clara—as Lady Truelove—has used his advice as newspaper fodder, he’s infuriated. But when he’s forced into a secret alliance with her, he realizes he’s got a much bigger problem—because Clara is upending everything Rex thought he knew about women—and about himself. . .

Excerpt

“Well, well,” he murmured, “with every look and every word, the little lamb with the big brown eyes

proves she’s not as defenseless as she first appears.” Clara felt a spark of frustration at his

descrip- tion. She might be plain and possess a shy, quiet disposition, but she was not some

helpless, dependent creature.

“Is that what I am?” she asked as they turned in a circle, moving in the steps of the dance. “A

little lamb?” She opened her eyes deliberately wide. “And I’m lost in the woods, I suppose, and

you’ll come save me?”

“Save you? I doubt it.” His gaze lowered, paus- ing at her lips. “Ravish you would be a sight more

likely.”

Clara’s heart gave a panicked thud, slamming into her ribs with such force that it broke her con-

centration. She trod on his foot, lost her balance, and would have stumbled, but he caught her,

letting go of her hand to wrap his arm around her back. “Careful,” he murmured. “Dance with me much

longer and you’ll be in danger.”

“You warn me, Lord Galbraith, but I cannot help wondering why.”

“You’re in my arms.” He pulled her a fraction closer. “Make no mistake, my lamb. You are in very

great danger.”

Lucien de Vincent – the wildest, most unpredictable brother – is having a bad week. His father has been found dead in the most suspicious circumstances. His older brother is bribing the police to avoid a scandal. And the more he spends time with, Julia the new nurse taking care of his troubled sister, the more he can’t imagine being without her.

Excerpt

“I want to know about you,” he spoke before she could, and then shifted closer, his knee

pressed into her thigh once more. “I have questions. I’m made of them.”

She gave a little laugh as she shook her head. “There’s nothing more to know about me than

what you already know.”

“There’s literally everything to know about you,” he insisted. “Where did you go to school?

What really made you take a job like this one where you leave everything behind?”

“I went to Shippensburg University. You’ve probably never heard of it.” Like she’d ever

answer that last question. Finishing off her tea, she smiled faintly. “It’s really late and I do need

to get to sleep. Thank you for the tea. I think it will work.”

“But I haven’t asked you the most important question.”

Slipping off the stool, she let her hair fall forward, past her breasts. “And what is that?”

“How can you be here and be the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen?”

Julia’s head swung to his so fast she thought her it would fall right off her shoulders.

Everything about the tone of his voice and the slightly wide eyes of his said he was being

genuine, but he couldn’t be serious.

Her gaze sharpened. Was he drinking something harder than chamomile? Because there was

no way in the world that he truly believed that she was the most beautiful creature he’d ever

seen.

The question burned to the tip of her tongue. If he thought she was so beautiful then why did

he walk away from her that night in her apartment? She swallowed the question so she didn’t

have to swallow her pride.

At the end of the day, she knew who Lucian was.

He was the kind of guy who couldn’t go a weekend without getting laid. They existed. She’d

met a few while in college and when she did her stint at the hospital. They weren’t exactly

particular when it came to who’d they be with. Pretty much came down to whoever was

available at the time.

Which meant she wasn’t going to be impressed with stray compliments that were tossed out

as often as the trash was.

Lucian leaned and then spoke in a low voice, “There is another reason why I didn’t tell you

who I was.”

The change of subject rattled her and she whispered back. “Why?”

He tilted his head so his mouth was directly above her ear. “Because I knew the moment

you’d figured out who I was, you wouldn’t have let me come back to your apartment.”

Exhaling roughly, Julia knew she needed to pull away and stop this conversation. That was

the professional and mature thing to do, but she didn’t move. She was frozen on her stool, her

heart thumping in her chest.

He wasn’t done yet. “I knew that if you realized who I was, you would’ve never let me get

my hand between those pretty thighs of yours and I would’ve never known how soft and slick

you felt against my fingers.”

A bolt of red-hot lust blasted through her veins as heat poured into her very core. Those

words created a storm inside her. A tremble rocked her body.

“So, yeah, that’s another reason why I didn’t say who I was.” His lips brushed the lobe of her

ear, sending an illicit shiver across her skin.

Pulse pounding, she drew back. She felt unsteady as Lucian straightened on his chair, and she

felt so close—too close to do something irrevocably reckless. Like hopping off her stool and into

his lap.

“You’re not supposed to bring that up,” she reminded him. “You promised.”

He tilted his head to the side. “I didn’t promise that.”

She opened her mouth.

“I didn’t,” he insisted, and when she dragged the conversation back through her thoughts, she

realized he was right. He hadn’t.

Her eyes narrowed. “Even so, it would be the appropriate thing for you to do.”

“And I think you already know how I feel about doing the appropriate thing.”

She shook her head. It was way past time to end this conversation. “Thank you for the tea,

Lucian, but—” A gasp cut her off.

Lucian rose and was in front of her so quickly that she was startled. “Say it again.”

Confusion swamped her. “Say what?”

“My name.”

They were close, and he towered over her by a good foot. Julia reached out, gripping the

edge of the island. “Why?”

“Because I asked?” he offered, his lips curving up at the corners. “And because I like the way

it sounds coming from your lips.”

Her heart did a weird little jump. She had no idea how to respond to that request. None

whatsoever.

But then he moved. He reached into the small place between them, catching the piece of her

hair that had fallen across her cheek. Before she could move away, the back of his hand dragged

across her cheek as he tucked the hair behind her ear. Her stupid, stupid body immediately

responded once more.

NEW RELEASE EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: Tempest by Beverly Jenkins

From USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion . . .

What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichael—an independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses. Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error, but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man she’s never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the unmistakable desire in his gaze.

Regan’s far from the docile bride Colton was expecting. Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his life—and in his arms—begins to inspire a new dream. And despite his family’s disapproval and an unseen enemy, he’ll risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.

Excerpt

“Being shot tends to make a man short-tempered. . .”

She held his gaze unflinchingly. Despite his doubts concerning her suitability, Colt found himself drawn to the determination she radiated.

“I can cook, set a proper table, and have impeccable manners. I speak English and Spanish. I hunt, fish, swim, and ride. I’d hoped to find a husband who’d view these qualities as assets, but if you’re seeking what society considers a proper wife who’ll defer to you in all things, and spend time sitting in a rocker with an embroidery hoop in her hand, you should say so and I’ll return to Arizona.”

Colt blinked. He didn’t know any woman with the pluck to toss down a gauntlet so effortlessly. Life with her would be neither easy nor boring.

Excerpt

“What kind of a kiss?” he asked. She was momentarily bewildered. “I don’t know. It was a kiss. A normal kiss. A nice kiss.” She cocked her head at him. “How many kinds of kisses are there?”

He just looked at her for a long moment before coming toward her. He backed her to the wall and pressed his big hands on either side of her head. “There are many kinds of kisses,” he said.

Her breath had backed up in her throat,

where her heart had lodged, pounding wildly.

“S-s-such as?”

“Such as this one.” And then he leaned in and covered her mouth with his.

Only when he’d thoroughly plundered and pillaged and left her boneless did he lift his head and look into her eyes.

“Wow,” she whispered, fully aware she was still holding on to him like he was a lifeline, but the bones in her legs had liquefied. “I mean . . .” She shook her head. “Wow.”

He nodded. “Yeah. So to be clear, that wasn’t ‘a normal kiss’ or even ‘a nice kiss.’ It was a ‘wow’ kiss. Any questions?”
