But Sydney Robinson has other plans. A beach volleyball player who can spike better than most men, she knows how to execute a series of events that include stalking the handsome SEAL all the way to Sonoma County, capturing him in a winery and delivering his carcass to her bed for keeps. Along the way, the two of them fight a home-grown terrorist cell in a duel that might cost one of them their lives.

And now a Special Excerpt from….
BAND OF BACHELORS: ALEX
She hesitated. He was good at brushing people off. Regardless of their world-class evening and morning, he could separate that. He could walk away. Her heart fluttered slightly as she realized perhaps she could not. Or just didn’t want to.
“So what do you want to know?”
“Who are you, Sydney?”
And boy was that the right question! Not who are you dating, who do you hang around, what do you do all day? It was usually the question that came up after the second or third date, just before she was about to exit stage right.
Her answer was measured, and well practiced.
“I want more out of life than life’s given me so far, but I’m not complaining. I just want more of it. I want the juice of life, not to live life. I’m looking to get a good partner and travel the world playing volleyball until my knees ache and my back or shoulder gives out. And after volleyball? Who knows what I can do at eighty?” She gave him the smile she’d given so many other dumbstruck men over the few years since she’d been dating. It was always the same. It also usually got same reaction.
But this time, she saw something ignite inside Alex. The backdrop of lonely seagull cries, the salty gentle breeze and the sounds of metal clanging as work began late at the docks, only enhanced the excitement brewing in her belly. She was struck with the beauty and power of something maybe dangerous about this man. And also something so beautiful, her eyes watered.

Sneak Peek

Excerpt

 

He all-but dumped me in the middle of the vast king-sized bed, before falling on top on me. After deftly undoing my bra, he ducked his head to feast on my breasts.

The instant his mouth captured one throbbing nipple, I arched my back as I tried to get him to take more of me inside him.

“Yes, Brendon!”

He withdrew slightly, to glance up at me.

“Say, yes, Sir.” Hell, at this point I would have said anything, even yes, master.

“Yes, Sir.” My voice was breathy, as it always was when in the throes of passion.

He groaned loudly. “Mmm, I love hearing those words on your lips.”

As if in confirmation, he planted a wet kiss on them, before resuming where he had left off; this time, plucking my other nipple to suck and nip.

All too soon, he withdrew and I was surprised to see that somehow, without me realising it, he had undid the remaining buttons and had eased the shirt off my shoulders; all while his mouth had been occupied with my chest.

Kneeling before me, with a wicked grin, he pulled my skirt down, to leave me in just my knickers and heels. Staring up at him I noticed that, as usual, he was still fully dressed. Well, before he went any further, I wanted to begin to strip him bare.

Pushing myself up onto my elbows, I peered up into his eager face and began to unbutton his pale blue shirt. Task done, I sat up straighter to boldly press my face against his now-naked chest; my most favourite part of Brendon’s body.

Sneak Peek

Excerpt

 

He walked into the laundry area and reappeared a few moments later. I noticed he had removed his sneakers. What I didn’t notice was that he was carrying a length of rope in his right hand. My eyes pulsed and widened.

“Trust me.”

He took hold of my hands and bringing my wrists together, tied them with the rope. He leaned towards me and with one finger, tucked a loose strand of hair behind my ear. I shivered inwardly at his gentle touch, followed so soon after his dominating actions.

“Stay!” He turned his back on me and walked to the kitchen, then poured himself a glass of water. He drank it slowly as he leaned against the breakfast bar. Our eyes met, yet neither of us spoke. His movements were relaxed and unhurried. Once finished, he placed it on the sink and then slowly sauntered his way across the room. The image of a panther stalking its prey came to mind.

“How do you feel right now, one word answer?”

That was easy, in a word, “Vulnerable.”

“Better, it’s a step up from nervous. Are you feeling aroused, yes or no?”

It was hard to admit, especially with him standing over me like he was. “I don’t know….”

“Yes or no?”

After a brief pause, I confessed in a small voice, “Yes.”

“Good, come with me.” In a controlled movement he brought me to my feet. He held my bound hands in one of his and grabbed the paperwork with the other. He headed for the stairs, pulling me along behind him. He was forceful, yet took the steps at a slow pace so I didn’t stumble. It was an overwhelming experience, heightened by the fact he didn’t speak, nor once look back at me.

I was surprised to see he was leading me towards the end of the corridor, towards his bedroom. The room was huge, almost making the king-sized bed appear small. The first thought that struck me was how dark it was compared with the rest of the neutral tones of the other rooms I had seen so far. Was this an insight into his hidden personality?

He placed the pages on one of the matching black bedside cabinets and then, stopping next to the bed, turned to me. “What is your favourite fantasy?”

My mouth dropped open and I mentally shook my head. I was definitely not prepared to reveal something so intimate, so personal.  But once again he gave me a hard stare, compelling me to tell the truth. “I don’t think I’m ready for that yet.”

He nodded as though he understood. “Then tell me something you would like me to do.” He gave me a wicked grin.

How could I put into words what I wanted, what I had always wanted to try? I recalled my few past experiences with the guys who had not been able to deliver the goods. Of course there was one who had been into it, but I hadn’t been up for the challenge at that stage.

“I want you to decide.”

Book 1 The Midnight Society

Author Logan Patricks

Semblance by Logan Patrick

Synopsis

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives. 

My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely. 

And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me. 

Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies. 

Falling in love with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

Sneak Peek

Chapter 1

Chapter One: One month ago

There were some days I seriously considered stripping at the Skin Bar a couple of blocks away from the University, just so I could make enough money for a nice hot meal and to save myself from another month of eviction threats from my red-faced Serbian landlord. However the thought of my dad’s spirit, God rest his soul, scowling at me while I shoved my breasts into some pervert’s face was enough of a deterrent for me to think anymore into it. This was the life of a struggling arts student, constantly fantasizing of ways to make ends meet.

Whoever said, “Money can’t buy happiness” clearly never starved a day in their lives.

I picked up the local campus paper and flipped through the Classifieds. It was littered with jobs for servers, which I had tried my hand at before, and loathed with a passion. Consider it a character flaw, but I was far too blunt and headstrong to put up with anyone’s bullshit. Blame my dad for instilling in me a strong sense of pride and confidence from the day I was born up until the day he left this world.

Though people considered me a cheerful person, there were three sure-fire things that transformed this sweet, happy-go-lucky girl into a snarling beast that was best left imprisoned inside seven-foot thick steel walls.

The first was having my ass grabbed. Unless you were my boyfriend, which no one was at the moment, then your hands were not allowed anywhere near my rear. Any attempts were met with an unholy wave of verbal profanities in addition to having all five of my fingers rake your eyes like they were dead leaves on a lawn.

The second was being judged unfairly, which was a constant occurrence for a classical performance music student. Every time I went on stage and performed one of Chopin’s preludes on the campus’s Steinway pianos—the most beautiful sounding instrument in existence—I was at the mercy of all the critics and their biased opinions. Granted that most of them left me with constructive criticism, there were the handful of critiques that infuriated me with unfair slanders that made me want to give up this dream of mine altogether. But dad taught me never to quit and I always ended up picturing his Jedi spirit (yes I was a fan girl) and the look of joy on his face as I played. This carried me through the worst criticisms and those difficult times when I believed myself to be a failure.

Finally, the last item on my list of not-so-awesome things was hunger, which I endured a lot of lately. It was turning me into a Frankenstein-like-bitch.

I contemplated the serving job once again, almost giving into the temptation of having some pocket money, but decided that I wasn’t in the correct mindset to deal with people. Also the threat of having my ass grabbed by drunken frat boys was not worth it for minimum wage.

I felt my stomach rumble and cursed at it.

“Stop complaining,” I said to my belly. “I fed you a chocolate bar four hours ago.”

Great, I was standing in the middle of the street talking to my stomach like only psychos or pregnant women did.

Hunger had struck at my sanity once again.

Oh Aria, I thought to myself, how are you going to survive another semester?

Review – Fueled by K. Bromberg

The Driven Trilogy

by K. Bromberg

17880708[1]

Synopsis

What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

Colton stole my heart. He wasn’t supposed to, and I sure as hell didn’t want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. She’s seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she’s still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won’t let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there’s someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I’d never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I’ll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can’t be what she needs, so why can’t I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

5 romance roses!

This is the second book in the Driven Series and in this one we read more about the dark, heavy baggage Colton Donavan carries with him about his secretive tortured past.  We see the lines of communication between Colton and Rylee open up in small increments even as their love and lust grows by leaps and bounds.

“She pushes me, unmans me, consumes me, scares the ever-loving shit out of me.

You clearly see the push and pull feelings Colton continues to carry for Rylee as he struggles to fight against his dark memories and hold on to the one thing that keeps him sane and hopeful of a future with her.  To him the definition of the word Love means something totally different to him and the way he was raised to believe.

8ca2b960879ac5ab446186201580c924[2]

5  hearts – couples falling hard

Rylee is still the wonderful, selfless, giving, strong and tenacious beautiful woman she was in Driven.  You have to admire the way she never gives up in her fight for Colton’s love and the future she sees with him.  The way she gives herself whole heartedly to those in need and to those she believes in and loves, this is what makes me want to be a better person.

“Fight Colton!  For you.  For us.  For me.  You don’t get to pull away from me.  You don’t get to walk away without a second thought.  I matter, Colton.  I deserve the same more than you do.  What we have is not inconsequential.

5 hot-o-licious steamy sex scene lips.

And OMG!  Let me just say the Lust Scenes in this sexy sizzling romance were of the charts panty melting, drool dripping, heart thumping, lip smacking, scorching hot.  Honestly, I licked my lips so raw I had to find my extra stash of carmex just to get through them.  Colton is so very charming and dirty.  Ha!

12ccd369b14ef1045c8810eb398556a0[1]

5 tear-em-up tears.

The most favorite and memorable parts in this story were the little boys living in the group home Rylee create for them.   You get a glimpse into their lives and pasts and really start feeling the heartache a pain each one of them lived through.  You see how Colton relates to them and soothes their suffering with words of encouragement and shows them how to handle vivid memories and horrid dreams by sharing his own way of handling these atrocious acts.

Spiderman, Bateman, Superman, Ironman.

In the end you get an overall understanding to what drives us all to succeed in our lives.  The continued fight for what is right, to stand up for others and yourself, to believe in Love, to strive to be a better person, to open up communication lines, and the tenacity to achieve your goals.

Thank you K. Bromberg, by far my most favorite of the series!

Excerpt

  Their First Meeting

The pretty, young host escorts me to a table for two near a window with panoramic water vistas. Within minutes, a server takes my order. As my café latté arrives, I can’t help but overhear a rude exchange between a man and his leggy blonde with the host that escorted me to my seat.

“Look, I reserved that exact seat yesterday,” he says.

“I apologize sir, but that seat is not available,” the host replies.

“Well, if you were doing your job in the first place, it would be available to me, wouldn’t it?”

“Sir, I’m sorry for the error, but it wasn’t written here. If you like, you can wait at the bar where I’ll be happy to serve you a complimentary beverage of your choice while you wait, or I can accommodate you at an available table now.”

I can’t help but look to see who this asshole is.

Everything about him smells of money. From the designer jeans that hug his ass, all the way to the Jaeger Reverso watch that graces his wrist. He’s hot—probably in his mid to late thirties, tall, broad shoulders, piercing grey eyes, and a head of black hair like I’ve never seen.

Ordinarily, I might have found him attractive, if only he would just shut up.

Everything he says to that poor young girl, who has tried so hard to rectify someone else’s mistake, pisses me off. He’s been nothing but rude and condescending. As I look up, my eyes land straight on his. Then I realize they’re all looking my way. I turn around to look behind me, but there is no one. Then it dawns on me that he’s arguing with the host about my seat.

My meal arrives. I mind my business, and I proceed to enjoy it. Before I know it, I see him approaching my table. I pretend not to notice and focus all my attention on my lemon ricotta pancakes before me, but within seconds, he stands beside me.

“Excuse me, my name is Jonathan Kole. Would you mind terribly if you were seated elsewhere?”

My eyes travel across my pancakes to his broad thighs, to his crotch, and to what I suspect is an extremely trimmed stomach beyond his black ribbed sweater. Then I stare into his grey eyes in silence.

“You see, my girlfriend and I met right here at this table a year ago, and I wanted to propose to her.

Here. Today.”

“Actually, Jonathan, I do mind. Seeing that I’m enjoying my meal, surely you wouldn’t mind waiting until I’m done. Or perhaps you can let that polite host, who has done everything possible to accommodate you, have you seated elsewhere.”

“Do you have any idea who I am?” he asks.

Asshole! Your name might sound familiar but who cares…

“No. You could be the king of England and I wouldn’t give a damn.”

“Who the hell do you think you are?”

“You really want to know?” I ask quietly.

He lowers his head slightly, as if he’s seriously interested.

“I am a woman who walked in on her fiancé screwing her best friend one week before her wedding, so forgive me if I’m not in a sentimental mood.”

His mouth drops open at my response.

“Now, if you’ll excuse me, Mr. Kole, I’d really like to enjoy my brunch.”

His piercing grey eyes are glaring into mine. I know he’s angry. His temple pulsates as he stares at me. He walks away completely flushed.

I don’t care. Perhaps if he had been nicer to that host I would have considered his request. However, because he comes from money doesn’t give him the right to speak to people any which way he wishes.

I continue to enjoy my meal and notice him walking hand in hand to the bar with Malibu Barbie. Half an hour later, I ask for the check then purposely make him wait an additional five minutes before I leave.

On the way out, the host looks at me bright-eyed. “No one ever speaks to Mr. Kole that way, Miss McLean.”

“Well, it’s time someone taught him some manners,” I reply. I hand her a healthy tip, and I’m on my way.

About the Book

Contemporary romance author AJ Harmon is going to do it
again with her new Sky Romance Novels series. Book 1, San Diego – love comes in
many forms, is the beginning of this heartwarming and inspirational new series.
Building on the success of her First Class Novels series,
one of Amazon’s bestselling authors, AJ Harmon is going to answer the question
we all ask ourselves when waiting in the airport for a flight. “I wonder where
they’re going…and why?”
In “San Diego – love comes in many forms” we will follow
three passengers and one member of the crew as they explore, discover and
embrace love, passion, loyalty and selflessness to fulfill their desire to love
and be loved in return.
Flight attendant Jill Delaney has a surprise waiting for her
at her destination in San Diego and a life altering decision to make.
William Nestor, an esteemed New York Oncologist, flies west
after decades of living on the opposite coast to bury his father, where he
recognizes an unexpected opportunity to conquer his fear and claim a love that
was lost. Will he finally be bold enough to claim what should have been his
twenty-five years ago? Or will he once again retreat from his desires?
Annie and Evan Wilder, the perfect couple, travel to San
Diego to discover the true meaning of unselfish love and the missing piece to
their perfect life, only to be blessed with two miracles instead of just the
one they’d spent the past ten years praying for.
The heartwarming and inspirational stories you’ll follow in
“San Diego – love comes in many forms” will brighten your day as you laugh, cry
and celebrate love and family with these loveable and relatable characters that
AJ Harmon has brought to life.

About the Author
AJ Harmon was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia.
She currently resides in Oregon, USA, with her husband Brad. They have two
grown children, her pride and joy, and a dog named Max.
An avid reader of the Romance genre, the books in her
personal library range from historical to erotica and everything in between. “I
love reading a sweet romance set in the English Regency period where men were
gentlemen and the women pretended to be naïve. But sometimes you just need a
hot sexy romance to cap off a long week,” she smiled. The bookshelves in her
home are filled with a variety of authors and she is humbled to now be among
their ranks. 
AJ is a new author, finding her passion in writing after her
children had left home, leaving her and her husband empty-nesters. She says the
‘First Class’ series has been a pleasure for her to write and has been
absolutely delightful that readers have received them with such a warm embrace.
“It will be hard to say goodbye to the
Lathems,” she said. “They have become a huge part of my life and I consider
them my family.” The series has nine volumes in total and AJ considers it to be
one of her greatest achievements. “This series has changed my life and the
readers have brought me more love and joy than I ever hoped for. My life is a
fairytale.”
AJ is excited to be working on her new contemporary romance
series, Sky Romance Novels, with the first book in the series coming in
February, 2014.
