'David's Selfie' by Daisy Harris


Blurb: 

When David, a single father, vows to get laid just once before the year ends, he doesn’t figure on losing his cell phone—and with it one very revealing picture. Lucky for him, his phone is found by a disarmingly handsome man who might be perfect for the kind of casual Christmas fling David is after.

Go-go dancer Craig never would have guessed that the guy with the cute cock shot would turn out to be a doctor. Or that he’d find himself lying about his night job and worrying David will find out the truth. To complicate matters, each of their hook-ups requires days of planning. Yet before he knows it, Craig has a new boyfriend, and possibly a whole new family.

David’s ready to dive head-first into something new, but if Craig’s going to commit, he’ll need to come clean about his job, his past, and—most of all—the naughty picture that drew him to David in the first place.

Warning: Call your doctor if after six hours you still can’t get the grin off your face.

Read an excerpt:
“Listen, I can’t take you to my place—” 
“Yeah, I get it. Because you have a kid.” 
“Well, if she was asleep, maybe it would be okay...” That was stretching the truth, but David didn’t want Craig feeling offended. “My sister-in-law is there and...” 
“No. I get it.” Craig’s hand fisted on top of the car, but it seemed more in frustration than anger. 
“I can give you a ride home...” God, David wished he could kiss Craig. He could get off for weeks on the memory. 
“Okay.” Craig’s answer was measured, his eyes burning. He slid into the passenger seat.
David followed, but before he could get the key into the ignition, Craig caught his wrist and dragged him closer. 
There was only a second of hesitation, the air ripe between them in the dark car, and Craig’s lips were on David’s. Firm, but softening. Savory from their dinner, and scratchy with stubble.

David palmed Craig’s arms, then his chest. Every part of him was strong and thick, smelling of menthol and musk. 
Craig cupped the base of David’s skull. “Let’s park somewhere.” 
Distracted by unbuttoning Craig’s shirt, David took a few seconds to process Craig’s words. “We are parked.” He bit his way down Craig’s neck. Knowing the name of each muscle didn’t diminish the magic of feeling strength under skin. 
Craig urged David away. “I mean, at a park or something.” 
“Where?” David twisted to get back into his seat. He’d fooled around with guys in college. Boys, really. But Craig was a man. Something he had fantasized about but never had. He couldn’t wait to feel under Craig’s clothes. 
“Arboretum? Or maybe down by the water.” Craig’s shirt was unbuttoned to reveal a chest with a smattering of finely clipped hair. 
“Yeah. Okay.” As David’s brain unscrambled, he thought of a stretch of road that would be deserted. Granted, they’d probably have to share the space with the occasional drug dealer, but David didn’t care so long as he tasted more of Craig’s skin. 
They drove in silence. David was breathing hard, and he couldn’t slow his heartbeat. For once he didn’t worry about whether he’d brought his inhaler. Lightheaded, jittery and more excited than he could remember being in ages, David drew the car to a stop and put it in park. 
“Fuck.” Craig reached across again, grabbing a fistful of David’s hair and hauling him into a kiss.

'Ghosts of Grace Cottage' by Carolyn Wren


Ghosts of Grace Cottage
by Carolyn Wren

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Eloisa Waters is creating a new life for herself. After travelling for twelve months, she comes home at Christmas, purchasing a small country cottage in a sleepy English village, despite the fact its previous owner was a recluse, the original owner was supposedly a witch, and it’s now rumored to be haunted!

On the first night in her new home, sensual erotic dreams surprise and delight her. Only these aren’t dreams. The rumors are true. Two handsome Regency ghosts inhabit the cottage, becoming corporeal at night, trapped by a curse, compelled to satisfy every desire of the new owner.

Elly begins to fall in love with Anton and Phillipe, her charming ghostly lovers. But is there more? Can the curse be broken? Or does Elly risk her own soul. As Christmas approaches, and memories surface, how will Elly choose? How can she possibly leave behind the Ghosts of Grace Cottage?

Read an excerpt:
“Est-elle blesse!”

“Peut-être s’est-elle cognée sa tête?”

Elly moaned. “I’m not hurt, and I didn’t hit my head. Can you speak more slowly and in English? My French skills deteriorate when I’m in pain.”

“Pardon…sorry, English. You frightened us.”

Her eyes snapped open. “I frightened you?” She scrambled backwards. “You...” She swallowed. “You’re…dead!”

She hadn’t imagined it. Two men knelt on the floor beside her. Two truly gorgeous men. One blond and one dark-haired, they were dressed in some sort of period costumes. Regency if she had to take a guess. It appeared as if they were standing behind a film of gossamer thin material, giving them an unusual translucent look.

“Eloisa, please….” the blond man said.

Elly scrambled backward a few more feet. “How do you know my name?”

“You talk to yourself,” he replied with an elegant, one-shouldered shrug.

“Oh, right, yes I do, but that doesn’t excuse the fact you’re dead.”

The dark haired man, who was drop-dead gorgeous, no pun intended, raised his hands in a gesture of surrender. “Eloisa, yes, you are correct. We mean you no harm. We are always here. You are seeing us now because you needed to.”

Having the dead theory confirmed, snapped Elly out of her shock. “Ghosts don’t exist.”

A hint of a smile tilted the blond man’s mouth. “I thought that too until I became one.”

“What do you mean I’m only seeing you now because I need to? What do you mean you’re here for me?” Am I repeating myself?

“It is the curse.”

“I’m cursed?” Her words came out as a high pitched squeak.

“No, we are.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was born in England. My parents loved to travel as my dad spent many years in the navy. By the time I reached the age of 12 we had traveled pretty much around the world on cruise ships.

This sounds fun and exciting unless like me you can get sea sick sitting in a bathtub. Lets just say boats do not feature highly in my books.

I still love to travel, but I use planes. All of my life I have written stories in my head. I would rewrite and add characters to TV shows, edit and change novels I was reading, invent scenarios and scenes to amuse myself on long journeys. But strangely I never wrote any of them down. About three years ago I woke up with a scene so clear in my head I knew I had to put it down on paper. Now, what should I do with this one page of prose? I know, I will email it to some friends. The friends approved, in fact they asked what book it was from. I shyly admitted it was my own work and the reaction was immediate...please write the next bit! I did and I have not stopped writing since.

'What Might Be: A Summer Tale' by Augusta Hill



Blurb: 

“You’re a breath of joy, Nell. That’s the most tempting thing in the world.”

Nell desperately needs to write a hit, or her romance career will be even deader than her love life. Her grandfather's quirky cabin is the perfect writer's retreat, but it turns out life in the woods isn't as distraction-free as she'd hoped. How can she concentrate on writing with Alik the local park ranger's sweet and sexy ways finding a place in her heart, no matter how hard she tries to focus?

What she doesn't realize is that his easygoing friendship comes with a difficult choice. He has a dark secret tied to the moon, and when fame and fortune come calling for Nell, she'll have to decide between the glitzy life she knew, and the man she's come to love.

This is the first of the Volkov series, however this paranormal romance novel can be read as a stand alone. It is a self-contained HEA.

'The Other Side of Sin: Memoirs of London Call-Girls' by Maria Cowen


Blurb:

Enter a world of extravagance, glitter, and excess as four upscale call-girls seek success by way of the world’s oldest profession. Follow Tina, Maxine, Bella, and Elaine to some of the world’s most exotic locations and richest cities in a whirlwind adventure that ranges from the glamour and riches of the jet set crowd to unthinkable depths of despair and hardship.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tina, Elaine, Bella, and Maxine are four beautiful women struggling to gain money, success, fame, and love. They meet in central London at the Mayfair Nightclub, where they get to know the spectrum of politicians and celebrities to drug dealers, pimps, and gangsters. While they are taken around the world and living lavish lives, they are unsatisfied with their roles as playthings destined only to give pleasure. To reach the top, they continually risk their health, mental integrity, and their lives. The Other Side of Sin follows each woman as they try to break out of their soulless lives.

TINA tries to escape her call-girl life and gets a position in a top Vegas casino. Tragedy strikes on her wedding day, when she and her new husband Nick Santini are shot on the steps of the church. After recovering, Tina tries to flee, but has in her possession some compromising documents that threaten her safety...

ELAINE has just purchased an apartment when she meets Eddie Brown, an aspiring singer and a very ambitious man, but also penniless. He starts manipulating Elaine to get money, and she, blinded by her love and adoration for him, seems oblivious to the danger he puts her in, until she is caught at the Bangkok Airport…

BELLA’s stunning looks make life easy for her. Her company is sought by many, including princes of blood. Whatever she desires is given to her, except one thing: her six-year-old son. His Greek tycoon father keeps him away from his mother because after their marriage she double-crossed him and lost everything. She is determined to reclaim her little boy, so she comes up with a plan to kidnap him--can she manage to get her son back?

MAXIME always seems to fall in love with the wrong man: Paco, the Brazilian football player, almost killed her in a car accident outside Rio. She then meets Tymur, the Iranian prince on the run from the Khomeini regime with only a suitcase of diamonds to his name and a hefty prize on his head. Maxine suddenly finds herself on the run with him, trying to escape terrorists, but can they escape death?

The Other Side of Sin is the ultimate adventure full of passion and intrigue, sacrifice and betrayal, love and death.
