SHE’S NOT A PARTY GIRL ANYMORE…

Sophie Dean has worked long and hard to shed the rock-n-roll bad girl reputation she earned at college. With her rebellious days behind her, Sophie now uses the prestige of the Dean family name and money to bankroll humanitarian aid. The only part of her past she can’t leave behind is the major crush she has on Finn Jenkins. When danger from an unknown quarter threatens Sophie’s latest undertaking and she needs protection, fate steps in and delivers a second chance with Finn.

HE’S FOUGHT HIS FEELINGS FOR TOO LONG…
When Finn returns home after two tours of duty as a Navy SEAL, it doesn’t take long to realize he still has feelings for Sophie, who is no longer the irresponsible young woman he walked away from all those years ago. An assignment to escort Sophie and an orphaned Pakistani boy to the Pacific Northwest should have been an easy mission—and it’s the perfect opportunity to get re-acquainted with Sophie and finally confess how he feels. But when someone threatens the orphan in their care, Sophie and Finn must set aside their feelings to save the child’s life…and their own.

TOGETHER, THEY’LL HAVE TO RISK IT ALL.


Sophie, wedged in between the seats, squirmed to get out. She had taken the brunt of the impact. Finn lifted her into his arms and Sophie fell against his chest. He didn’t care, he wrapped her tightly in his arms, squeezing her against his pounding heart. “Finn,” her voice barely audible. Her lips constricted into a pale line. “I thought they were going to take me again.”
Still holding her in the air, Finn brushed her hair away from her eyes. He had to see her eyes, to make it all better. Her pupils dilated wide like saucers, her shattered face cold and colorless. He never wanted evil to touch her again.
“I’ll die before I’ll let anyone hurt you.” And he kissed her, pouring all his desperate feelings and emotions into the kiss. His mouth crushed down on her cold lifeless lips. He kissed her like he owned her soul and would accept nothing less. She was everything. All he had ever dreamed. All the adrenaline of the chase poured into this kiss, his desperate hunger for this woman. Finn couldn’t stop. Didn’t care. Her body tightened in shock before her softness melted against him, her body clinging to his.
Nick shouted, “Finn, stop mauling Sophie.”
Finn dropped his hands away as if she was an IED about to detonate. Finn, mighty Navy SEAL, lost his focus, his ability to compartmentalize. He pulled back waiting for Sophie to smack him across the face. She gaped at him, her crystalline blue eyes wide, her lips red and swollen from his demanding kiss which gave him territorial satisfaction. She touched her finger to her lips. And, though never lost for words, a shocked Sophie just stared at Finn.
Finn wanted to pull her back into his arms. This was not the place or time though. It was a selfish move on his part to kiss her, to claim her, but it was the one time he’d lost his highly trained control. Only one time after all the endless dreary years. Engaging with the Honchoes brought up all his suppressed fears of losing Sophie, his soulmate, his missing rib—only when you find the woman of your life will you no longer feel the lingering ache in your heart. Finn no longer felt the lingering ache.
“We need to make tracks back to HQ,” Finn said to Nick who was bent over the SUV, checking the tires.
A lone state overweight trooper, looking not too happy as he climbed out of his car, put his hat on his head and with his hand on his holstered gun on his hip, marched toward the troublemakers Finn and Nick. Finn gave Drew the high sign to handle the trooper. Drew, a big, mean, ex-Army Ranger, stepped in front of the trooper. The poor trooper didn’t stand a chance.

 “We need to take the other SUV,” Finn said to Nick, ignoring the biggest and best mistake he had ever made.

Two households, both
alike in dignity… hit a serious snag in their ongoing prank war last
semester.
The Blossoms of #246
and the Dudes of #247 each lost a member to flippin’ Love. (Insert eye-roll
here.)
The
lovebirds/turncoats now plan to move out of their houses and in with each
other. But true prankster talents like Kitty are few and far between, so the
remaining Blossoms are going to make damn sure there’s no shacking up before
Kitty has the perfect replacement for herself.
The Blossoms and the
Dudes agree on very little, but everyone agrees on this: there can be no more
pranks-turned-lovers between the two arch-fratenemy houses.
Yep, everyone
agrees.
Almost everyone.

Guess who the next book is about?
Excerpt
VISIT TO THE IOTA FRAT MANSION
K-Pop opens
the door, candy eyes as bright as ever and flawless features drawn up in a
mischievous smile. He’s wearing rabbit ears, but I know better than to ask.
They’re of the kind that are stuck to a hood so that his whole head is covered
in fake grey fur. The ears are long and soft-looking with pink centers. I want
to pet him.
“My, my,
my,” he mimics every Dude ever opening the door for a Blossom. “What have we
here? Picasso come here and see what we have here. It’s the Blossom who wants
to suck you off!”
“How about
you shut your face?” I ask sweetly. The last time I was here, I magically
avoided the Pirate Punch. The Dude Den’s most infamous concoction consists of
every type of alcohol available. That and jam. Any jam. Unfortunately, even
though I avoided it, I was still lit by the time I ended up in his room.
“Saki is
here to lick your prick!” K-Pop hollers.
“Oh my God,
you’re so stupid,” I say. “Where is he?”
One thing
never fails in 247: every Dude that’s not the one you ask for will appear in
the doorway. Guns is wearing a Viking helmet. Lucian pokes his head out behind
him with wet hair and a comb sticking straight up from it. “Hey, Blossom.
What’s up?”
“She’s here
to—”
“Long Dick,
if you don’t shut your trap, I’ll pour all this paint down your throat.” I hold
up the goddamn ochre. “You know what? I’m too busy for this. I’m going to just
leave the paint here and get going.”
“That
wasn’t the deal, I believe.”
I scrunch
my eyes shut and open them slowly at the melodious, too intimate voice. Finding
a pair of stunning grey eyes above me, I straighten and give Picasso the
stare-down he deserves.
“I’m not as
anal as you, so sorry for forgetting the exact manner in which I am to return
the ochre. Let’s see.” I pucker my mouth like I’m thinking. I’m not gonna lie
and say I don’t enjoy it when his gaze sinks to watch my lips. “Nope, I’ve got
nothing. Unless you wanted me to pour it right on your precious painting
myself?”
He lets out
a small snort and hooks his finger for me to follow him. I’m not too chicken to
obey. And up the stairs of the Dude mansion we go… sober.

Excerpt
I link my fingers
behind Sam’s neck. “He cares about you, Sam.” 
“I’m tryin’ to move
forward, get somewhere, be somebody. I just feel like he’s holding me back.”
I look down at our
feet and back up to meet his frown. “You seem to be moving ahead just fine to
me.” 
“I’m no ballroom
dancer.”
I press my lips
against his. I delight in a long-lasting kiss until Sam moans in the back of
his throat. Reluctantly, I pull back. “Then lucky for the both of us, because I
don’t want a dancer. I want you.”
The song finishes,
but we continue to sway, locked tight in each other’s arms. The young girl nods
to Shaun and walks offstage as a lady with wild ginger hair in a ruffled denim
dress and cowgirl boots takes her place. The woman, who looks to be in her
forties, adjusts the microphone to her height, and then plucks the strings of a
mandolin. Her voice crackles as she sings about writing a song, and her tears.
Sam’s arms stiffen
around me. “Of all the frickin’ songs, she picks this one by Willie Nelson?”
The lady continues
on about sad songs and waltzes. It’s kind of depressing. Ironic, really. I
shift my arms around Sam’s waist. 
“I hate country
music,” he growls in my ear. 
“The song’s not that
bad,” I lie. 
Sam’s mouth moves to
my ear. The heat of his breath sends a flood of warmth to my lower belly. “I
just wanted this one moment. She’s killin’ me.” 
I tighten my hold
around him. “Forget about her.”
Sam grinds his
teeth. “How can I? It’s all I can hear.” 
“Then listen to me
instead.” I press one hand to the centre of his chest. “We made it, Sam. We
made it here to this very spot.”
A lazy smile curls
at his mouth. “Now’s not the time to make me weak at the knees, Janie.”

Series: Wanted Trilogy #2
Author: Dee Palmer
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 10, 2019

Blurb
Not every Prince is charming… 
How long does it take to fall in love?
For my best friend Finn her fairytale took a little time:
Now she lives out her HEA with her 4 ‘husbands’ on the ranch where all the
magic happened. 
For me, it’s more complicated: 
When it comes to romance, I have a fixed and final to-don’t list.
Don’t do fairy tales
Don’t do love
Don’t do happy ever after’s
I’m a party girl. 
Sex is my favourite pastime, work is my passion
And finalising this deal with Jorgen is my mission.
Jorgen Jensen is Danish royalty. 
Rude, rich and secretive.
He’s also too hot for my own good and has a mission all his
own in mind.
One month with him in paradise.
One month to play. 
One month to change my mind. 
When I find myself on Finn’s doorstep I’m a little dazed and
confused and a lot desperate to forget. 
I need my friend, I need a distraction 
And I need to keep my mouth shut about my mistake.
That shouldn’t be too hard?
I love just three things, my best friend Finn, my mum
and my life. 
I’ve busted my butt growing the business my mum started when
I was a kid and it’s about to pay off, big time.  Securing a multi-million
pound investment with an elusive sex-god CEO is just step one . Unfortunately,
that step is one giant leap I’m not remotely ready for. 
Business man and Danish ‘royalty’ Jorgen Jensen is a threat
to my senses and sanity. He’s also a threat to my rules and is way too easy on
the eye. Although he’s not ‘technically’ my boss, he’s the money and that makes
him off limits. 
Rule one: ‘don’t shit where you eat’. 
I’ve worked too hard to mess this up with sex, even
phenomenal sex isn’t worth it and just looking at him I know that’s all this
would ever be… phenomenal sex.
However, when circumstances change, I’m tempted and agree to
accept the challenge of a lifetime. After all, it’s only one month, with a
Nordic god, in paradise.  There are worse ways to prove there’s no such
thing as love and a happily ever after for someone like me.
Who knew being right would hurt so much?
Landing on Finn’s doorstep, too ashamed to tell the truth
and with my to don’t list in tatters, I really need a place to hide, to forget
and to move on and where better than over the pond at my best friends
Californian ranch with her four husbands.
