Glass Castle Prince by Nicole Williams

 

 

 

 

AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.

Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.

That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.

They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .

One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .

Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape

New Release: Should’ve Been Us by Jess Bryant

Title: Should’ve Been Us

Publisher: Blue Lemon Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 20, 2019
Blurb

It’s a destination wedding, Fate, Texas style, and the
thermostat isn’t the only thing about to hit its boiling point.
Lulu Nichols has
lost the love of her life.
Her best friend,
Derek, proposed to someone else. He’s marrying someone else. And oblivious to
her feelings, he’s asked her to play best man at his wedding. She can’t say no,
not without admitting her secret and ruining everything, so she pastes on a
smile and heads to Mexico to watch the man of her dreams get his happily ever
after, even if it isn’t with her.
Connor Shaw is finally
ready to claim the love of his life.
He wants Lulu. He’s
always wanted her. Even though she’s slightly crazy and seriously delusional
about her relationship with Derek. Connor is the one that brings out her fire
and matches it with his own. He’s the one that drives her just as crazy as she
drives him and it’s way past time for her to admit that all their fighting is
really just foreplay.
Together they’re
like gasoline and a match; a powder keg destined to blow, but oh how satisfying
an explosion it will be.
But is their spark
the kind that burns fast and then out? Is the heat going to Lulu’s head or is
there more to Connor than she’s ever realized? Could they possibly be meant for
forever or are they destined to always be a should’ve been?

Excerpt
“You should probably slow down there, dollface.” A deep
voice slid over her, down her spine and made her shudder. With revulsion, she
told herself. It was definitely revulsion. “Wouldn’t want to get drunk and
admit you’re in love with the groom, would ya?”
The taunt sent a red-hot surge of anger boiling beneath her
skin, turning her cheeks pink and the ice in her veins to lava as she spun to
face the man intruding on her pity party. She felt a little light headed when
she noticed how close he was standing but she attributed that to the alcohol in
her bloodstream. It only pissed her off more that it proved he was right. She
needed to slow down on the drinks or risk making a scene before the bridal
party even arrived.
God, she hated when he was right.
Connor Shaw was a stupid, know-it-all bastard. He always had
some smartass remark for her. Always. He’d been Derek’s sidekick since the
sandbox days but Lulu did not consider him a friend. He was more of a nuisance,
an ache in her head that never quite went away. Case in point, he was here now,
standing far too close to her, wearing some sort of cologne that invaded her
personal space and made her stomach twist, and looking smug as hell because he
knew, knew, that every woman in the room was looking at him
now that he had her attention.
She hated him. Despised him even. But she couldn’t blame the
women in the room for staring.
He looked like an angel, all golden and gorgeous and he had
an obnoxious habit of always managing to stand directly in the path of the sun.
Even now, in the low light of evening, a spotlight of glowing orange beamed
through the windows above, highlighting his dark blonde hair and making it look
as if he were wearing a halo. Sometimes it seemed like the sun literally
revolved around him.
It was annoying as hell.
So was that knowing twinkle in his dazzling blue eyes.
Because he wasn’t just ridiculously good looking, he also knew he
was ridiculously good looking which made him just about the biggest kind of asshole
on the planet in her estimation. He knew the effect he had on 99% of women and
the fact that she fell into the 1% that didn’t go ga-ga over him seemed to give
him some weird sort of enjoyment, which only made him more infuriating.
“I mean, unless that’s your plan.” He leaned an elbow
against the bar beside her, edging even closer so that she had to force herself
not to pull away, to put more space between them, because she knew he’d take
her retreat as a win in their never-ending game of dare. “Liquid courage?”
“Go away, Shaw.”
His head tilted slightly as if he’d expected a different
response, “Drowning your sorrows then? Have you finally admitted to yourself
that you and Dare were never meant to be?”
Her jaw clenched because, as per usual, his assumption hit
far too close to home. She attributed Connor knowing so much about her to the
fact that they’d grown up together. He’d always been there, on the edges of her
friendship with Derek, watching. Judging. He saw parts of her that she’d
thought were well hidden from everyone, even Derek, especially Derek, but
somehow Connor had seen her infatuation with their friend and he seemed to take
absolute joy in calling her out on the stupidity of it.
“I said, go away.” She slipped her hand around the glass in
front of her without looking at him but a big, warm, roughly masculine hand
closed over hers, stopping her short.
Her breath caught at the contact and she silently cursed
herself for the physical reaction. It had been too long since anyone touched
her. Anyone. It didn’t have anything to do with this man no matter how gorgeous
he was. It was the alcohol and the moroseness that had overtaken her at the
thought of Derek getting married.
Derek. Married. To someone else.
Her blood chilled and she pulled her hand away from Connor,
carefully, so as not to spill the liquid in her glass. She glared at him when
he frowned and his eyebrows drew together. He was looking at her strangely, in
a way she couldn’t place and she glanced away before he saw something else she
didn’t want him to see.
“Just… slow down on the drinks, okay doll?”
“Don’t call me that.” She instantly flinched.
“Tell me you’ll slow down, at least until dinner is served
and you put some food in your system and I won’t call you that again.” His blue
eyes were serious and she felt something inside of her begin to splinter.
Was he actually trying to take care of her? This man that
taunted her constantly? That set her every nerve ending on edge? Was he trying
to make nice for once? Because he knew this must be hard on her?
She nodded, “Okay.”
He gave her a small, cautious smile, “Okay.”
“Okay.” She tipped her drink at him.
“Okay.” He said again and she rolled her eyes because she
knew he’d do this all night if she let him get away with it.
“You can go now.” She shooed him away, “Go find someone else
to play your mind games with, Shaw.”
“But playing with you is so much fun.” 
She groaned, “If you stick around, I’m definitely going to
need another drink.”

New Release: Jules (Reed Security Series) by Giulia Lagomarsino

Title: Jules
Series: Reed Security Series
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Contemporary/Security Romance
Release Date: March 18, 2019
Julian swore he would always love her. He said he would never leave her. He’s about to break that promise. If only she would listen. If only she would trust him. But how much crap can one man take? It’s time to move on.

Ivy wants Julian more than anything, but she’s won’t trust anyone with her secrets. Now it’s too late. He doesn’t want her, but she needs him more than ever. If only she could make him understand. If only she had told him sooner how she felt, but that train has left the station and her life is going to hell. She should have told him she loved him when she had the chance.
“You really are f@&king stupid,” Ice sneered. “Why don’t you just kick her puppy while you’re at it.”
“She doesn’t have a puppy.”
“That was sarcasm, a$$hole. Getting your brain scrambled has made you a real dumb f@&ker.”
“What was wrong with what I said?”
“You just reminded her that you still don’t remember her after you kissed her.”
“Yeah, it’s true. That’s why I said it.”
“Well, f@&k. There’s your first problem,” Ice grumbled. “You never tell the truth.”
“I thought honesty was always best.”
“Nooo. No, no, no.” Chris agreed with him, which I found a little odd, which meant it was probably the right answer. “How’s dinner?”
“Fantastic,” Ice said. “Never had a better steak.”
“Honey, did you put that bill in the mail?”
“Of course, honey. I know that bill was important,” Ice smirked.
“Was it good for you?”
“Best head of my life.”
“That’s an important one,” Chris said urgently. “Never forget that one. She wants to know that she’s the absolute best and you’re never thinking about any other woman going down on you.”
“You lie to her about sex?” I asked incredulously.
“They do it too,” Ice shrugged. “You’re the best I’ve ever had. You made me come so hard. Your dick doesn’t fit. All of those are lies they tell us to make us feel ten feet tall. You know for a fact that they still think of past f@&ks because we do it too. And then there’s that lie about coming so hard when you know they were faking it. And come on, we all know that a dick can only be so big and it’s definitely going to fit because they can squeeze a baby out of their vaginas.”
“Lies are a healthy part of any good relationship,” Chris agreed. “They’re for your benefit and hers, so use them, but use them wisely.”

“Well, I’m glad that you gave me this advice now, after I already f@&ked things up. What the hell do I do now?”
    
   
  

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
