Perfect Kiss by Lacey Black

 




Title: Perfect Kiss
A Mason Creek Series Standalone Novel
Author: Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 29, 2021


BLURB

Malcolm

They say opposites attract, but I never understood the phrase until Leni Abbott walked into my office—or more specifically—into my office bathroom, while I was naked. Even as the pink stained her cheeks and she stuttered to speak, I was completely intrigued. She’s unlike anyone I’ve met before and, wildly enough, seems immune to my charms.

She also has a son. A young five-year-old boy, Trace, who blindsides me with his toothless grin and worms his way into my heart.

Together, they make me feel things. Things I’ve never expected. This single mom might not know it, but she could be everything I never knew I wanted.


Leni

I’ve heard all the rumors about Malcolm Wright, the playboy mayor with a trail of broken hearts left in his wake. I try to resist him, really I do, but he’s always there with those devastatingly gorgeous eyes and a sexy smile full of wicked intent. When he hires my business to clean his impressive house, I know I should stay away, yet find my resolve slipping.

Then he meets my son. I fully expect him to run for the hills, but that doesn’t happen. In fact, being near Trace only seems to draw Malcolm and I closer.

Now there are two hearts on the line as I put my trust and faith into the one man in Mason Creek who may not be able to give his own heart in return.

The Duke and the Assassin by Heather Slade

 




Title: The Duke and the Assassin
Series: Royal Agents of MI6 #1
Author: Heather Slade
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 24, 2021


BLURB

An M16 agent falling for the wrong woman.
A Russian with secrets to hide.
And the passion that defies the rules...

THE DUKE
My team. My family. My allegiance. As a duke, the boundaries and loyalties are clear. I may be the Marquess of Wells with a stoic and rigid father on his deathbed, but I have desires and needs that break those boundaries. Falling for an assassin may be an issue. But I haven’t faced a problem yet that I can’t solve—other than assembling a crib.

THE ASSASSIN
Secrets. Lies. Deception. As a Russian assassin, I’m riddled with it all. Now, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on my head, there’s no way I can get out alive. But the irresistible and incorrigible duke thinks otherwise. He wants me in his life, in his arms, and in his bed. There’s no declining the desires of a duke. And quite frankly, I have no intention of denying him anything.

While each book in the Royal Agents of MI6 series is a standalone with its own HEA, they may be more enjoyable read in order.

AUTHOR BIO

Heather Slade gave herself the gift of writing a book for her own birthday one year. Thirty-plus books later (and counting), she's hit a couple of best-seller lists and has had the time of her life. For Slade, the joy is in the writing, but nothing makes her happier than hearing from a reader who tells her that she's made her laugh or cry or gasp or hold her breath or stay up all night because she can't put one of her books down.

The women she writes are self-confident, strong, with wills of their own, and hearts as big as the Colorado sky. The men are sublimely sexy, seductive alphas who rise to the challenge of capturing the sweet soul of a woman whose heart they'll hold in the palm of their hand forever. Add in a couple of neck-snapping twists and turns, a page-turning mystery, and a swoon-worthy HEA, and you'll be holding one of Slade's books in your hands.

She loves to hear from her readers. You can contact contact her at heather@heatherslade.com

AUTHOR BIO


Hello!
I'm C.D. Gorri, Bestselling, Award-Winning, Steamy Paranormal Romance, Young Adult/Urban Fantasy Author, and Creator of the Grazi Kelly Universe.

I've always been an avid reader with a profound love for books and literature. When I'm not writing or taking care of my family I can usually be found with a book or tablet in my hand. I live in my home state of New Jersey with my husband, our children, and our dogs, Dash and Chewie.

As a busy mom of three I know finding time for the things I enjoy, like reading, is never easy! That is why I write stories that are fast-paced, yet detailed with satisfying conclusions. Now that I've started, I can't picture myself doing anything else. I simply adore writing powerful women and loyal heroes who face relatable problems in supernatural settings. I plan on adding to the Grazi Kelly Universe with each and every story I publish.

If you pick one up you can expect sassy, curvy heroines and sexy, love-driven heroes who find their HEAs between the pages of my stories. My characters include Werewolves, Bears, Dragons, Tigers, Witches, Romani, Lynxes, Foxes, Thunderbirds, Vampires, and many more Shifters and supernatural creatures. The most important thing is the mates in my universe are fated and loyal and they always get their happily-ever-afters.

Want to know how it all began? Enter the Grazi Kelly Universe with Wolf Moon: A Grazi Kelly Novel #1, my very first YA/Urban Fantasy book that sets the stage for the universe I write in. You can also start my PNR with the first book in the Macconwood Pack. Pick up Charley's Christmas Wolf today!

Author: Ivy Mason
Genre: Dark Billionaire Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2021


BLURB

She hated me… but I took her anyway. Nothing would stop me from claiming what's mine. A billionaire, captive mafia romance.

We’re the Kings
Brutal and heartless, we rule the Vegas mafia

Our dark underworld is savage and unforgiving
It takes everything from me, including the woman I love

Ten years later I come face to face with Rose
She's innocence and light, and reminds me of everything I lost

She also looks exactly like the woman I once loved

Turns out, they’re closer than I could’ve imagined

She hates me because she thinks I killed her sister
But I take her captive anyway, because I want her
In my bed and by my side

She belongs to me

And no one, not the bratva or my own brother,
will steal what's mine.

EXCERPT

I decided to humor her. "I'll give you one question. Any question. Ask it and I'll answer you honestly."
"Two."
I chuckled. "Greedy little lamb, aren't we?"… "I'll answer one question. Pick one. Then, in exchange for the other answer, I'll give you something else instead."
She huffed, blowing air through her luscious lips that made the wisps of her hair move. "What could you even give me? My freedom?" Her voice was mocking.
“Yes."
My answer surprised her, and she stared at me with disbelief and suspicion. "You're lying."
I shook my head. "If you take me up on my offer, the reward, if you win, will be an unlocked door, and twenty four hours to escape."
And what if I lose?”
I smirked. “Which you will.”
“You wish.”
“If you lose, you have to give me a favor. Willingly do something I ask for.”
“Tell me first what your favor will be.”
“That’s not part of the bargain. You’ll have to trust me on this.”
“Trust you,” she scoffed.
“Yes, trust me.”
“Because you’re so trustworthy.” She rolled her eyes.
"Yes, I love Bourbon." I picked the question for her, I needed her to move past her mistrust.
I'd picked that one because, the truth was, I didn't have the answer to the other question. I didn't know who I would pick if it came down to choosing between her and him.
"And what do I need to do to gain my freedom?" Even though she tried not to show it, I could sense the desperation in her voice. She wanted out of here.
I stepped closer, so close her head was all the way backwards because she wouldn't break eye contact with me.
Even though it was uncomfortable for her, and I was an ass for lording myself over her like an intimidating prick, she would do anything to prove to me that she was strong.
I grinned, letting the excitement I was feeling inside show through for the first time since I'd taken her. "I'm going to make you come."

EXCERPT

The twisted little smile on Isa’s face took my breath away, watching with rapt attention as she moved her pieces with clear focus and determination. Her eyes gleamed and she bit her lip every time she studied the board to choose her next move. I moved my knight, taking the pawn she’d unknowingly put into my path and waiting for the moment she realized I was three moves from taking her Queen. She moved one of her pawns, sitting back in the chair like the Queen she was and it was her throne.
“Checkmate,” she said, holding my eyes as I furrowed my brow, then I glanced down at the board again. She cocked her head to the side, smirking at me so arrogantly that I could feel it as I realized what she’d done. With my King pinned behind in all directions but the diagonal where she’d trapped me with her Queen, I couldn’t move to escape her play.
The game hadn’t been short, a group of pieces set to either side of the board as we’d conquered one another. But she’d won.
I couldn’t remember the last time I’d lost at chess, but I hadn’t even seen her spring the trap. Let alone maneuver me into it. I tipped over my King, giving her the acknowledgement she deserved.
The King had fallen to the Queen.
The look on her face communicated just how intent she had been as she unbuckled her seat belt and slowly stood. She stepped out from behind the table, approaching me in my seat until she touched firm hands to the back of the seat and swiveled it to face the aisle. It was so similar to what I’d done on our journey to Chicago, so intense a reversal of our roles that my heart beat faster inside my chest, my body thrumming with need.
I’d thought my unending obsession with Isa couldn’t get any more severe. That there were no corners of my being that didn’t belong to her, but as she stared down at me with fire burning behind her arresting eyes, I knew that hadn’t been true.
I had owned Isa, but mi reina would possess me in truth.

Flawless
Ivy Nelson
(A Diamond Doms Novel, #8)
Publication date: July 27th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Matthew Bruce has a lot of secrets. He’s legally married to royalty, he’s in love with his wife’s little sister, and he’s not really dead like everyone thinks. To top it all off, it turns out his recently deceased grandfather was part of the international underground organization his friends at Club Solitaire have been tracking down.

Faking his death hadn’t been part of the plan, and having Kendall Livingston, his wife’s sister, track him down most definitely wasn’t in the plans.

Now he has to keep them both safe and keep Kendall out of his bed.

Author Bio:

Ivy Nelson is an emerging contemporary romance author, hopeful romantic, and passionate advocate who is versed in all things steamy, sultry, and sensual. It all started back when she read her first steamy romance novel at the age of fourteen. From that point forward, it became her favorite genre--one she wanted to write in herself someday. Sylvia Day's writing style cemented that passion, and gave her just the inspiration she needed to be an author herself. In December of 2018, Ivy published her debut novel, Power Desired at the age of 32.

Most recently, Ivy completed the "D.C. Power Games" series and the prequel to her forthcoming "Diamond Doms series" titled "Hard" (currently available for pre-order). In a not-so-distant past, she was a student affairs professional at a university and earned her political science degree, which explains her politically-driven romance debut.

When she isn't penning steamy scenes or attending writing conferences, you can find this contest-winning karaoke singer and bookworm passionately supporting human rights or growing her Sims 4 empire. She is also a wine aficionado and certified whiskey taster (no really, she has the certificate to prove it). All that aside, Ivy loves spending quality time with her amazing son and husband of three years at their home in Houston, TX.
