New Release: Sight Lines by Author Cara Carnes

Sight Lines

The Arsenal, Book 2

by Cara Carnes

Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

 

Blurb

They took her best friend.

Now she’s taking them down.

Viviana “Quillery” Chambers has one mission: find the people behind Hive’s

betrayal and take them down. She and her best friend are the most sought after

back office operatives around. She’ll stop at nothing to keep her new team and

family at The Arsenal safe. But someone’s put a six million dollar hit on her and

ghosts from the past have returned. She’s facing her toughest challenge ever.

Now she has a mysterious assassin shadowing her every move. He’s vowed to

keep her safe, but she’s part of the Quillery Edge.

They never quit. They never surrender. They never let anyone stand between

them and their quarry.

He had one rule: Don’t mess with his family.

Judson Jensen’s lived a solitary life taking down targets no one else dared

touch. The bastards he’s wasted twenty years working for took his brother. The

choice was supposed to be simple—neutralize the Quillery Edge or your brother

dies. Unfortunately for them he had another choice—take them down. All he

needs is to earn the brilliant, fiercely sassy Viviana’s trust and keep her alive.

The two must work together to do the impossible: take Judson’s employer down.

This isn’t business…it’s personal.

Excerpt

He took Viviana by the waist. “I think it’s too soon for us to be alone. Your chaperon isn’t happy.”

“She’s not my chaperon and I’d pay more attention to me and less to her if I were you,” she clipped. “I’ll make this quick. Nothing about anyone or anything remotely connected to what went down with Mary, Peter Rugers or Hive is mentioned around her. I field everything.”

Protective. Fierce. Way more than superficial sass like most women. A fire rumbled in him, a flicker of appreciation born from something more than her operative reputation. This wasn’t just Edge’s partner shoving him against a wall. This was a friend. Someone who cared about those around her and would do anything to keep them safe.

“I’m not here to stir trouble. I’m more than happy to work one-on-one with you.”

Her eyes narrowed, tiny slivers of glimmering brown. “You’d be better off sniffing around my chaperon if you’re looking for more than taking Jian down and getting your brother freed.”

“I’m only here to help, nothing else.” He grabbed her arm and settled her into a constricting hold within a couple seconds. Her eyes widened. She tugged and twisted, but he held her firm. “Just to say, if I want more than that, I think I know my taste better than you.”

“Chasing after the others will get you in a heap of trouble, Jud.”

He settled a hand on her cheek and smiled when she glared up at him. “And throwing all that sass will get you in a bigger heap of trouble.”

“Why is that?”

“Because I’ve got a sweet tooth for sass, babe, and it’s been a long time since I’ve met a woman who could satisfy it.” He released her from the hold when he sensed Addy’s approach. “I’m here to help, but that doesn’t mean I’m blind or dead.”

Blitz: Bona Fide Beauty by Landra Graf

Blurb

She’s going to lose her house.

Kathleen Baum has four months to complete the city’s required code changes to

her grandma’s home. Otherwise, she loses it. Strapped for cash, Kat’s only way

to get the funds is to bargain with her devil cousin. She agrees to an unwanted

makeover, but she’s not good at taking direction, pretend or not.

He’s going to lose his business.

Devid Esposito has worked all his life to build a successful image consulting

company, but if he doesn’t start bringing in new clients the business will be

bankrupt in three months. The board is ready to oust him when his partner, Kat’s

cousin, enters with the opportunity to get his mojo back; all he needs to do is

help Kat, with a makeover. Unfortunately, Dev doesn’t take on female clients

anymore since the last one broke his heart and used his tips against him.

When they find out they have a common enemy, his heart-breaking client is her

code-breaking-whistleblower, and the easiest way to bring the foe down is to

accept the other’s help. Losing their hearts to each other was the one thing they

didn’t plan for.

Excerpt

 

As she trudged across the parking lot and onto the trail entrance, the crisp September air hit her nostrils. The sensation triggered favorite fall memories—football, apple cider, pumpkin pie—not exercise. The Compton Garden Conference Center loomed in front of her. Once a house, it had been remodeled in honor of the doctor who’d lived there as a meeting center. Another historical piece of downtown Bentonville transformed for public use. If Pru got her hands on Kat’s house, a similar fate would occur. The idea congealed the soda pop in her stomach. Reminded of her purpose, the Herculean task she needed to undertake to save her future, she marched forward with a bit more resolve.

And the man she needed to convince to help her stood on the sidewalk in front of the building, bent over touching his toes. She stopped and watched, mesmerized, as he stretched and moved. Compared to Nick, who’d been all lanky, gangly limbs with little tone, her image consultant had enough muscle to spare. Shame Dev hid his body inside a suit all day.

He finished his last stretch, released the foot in his hand, and turned to face her. “Good morning.”

“That could be left up to interpretation.” Her response garnered a raised eyebrow. She came to a stop next to him. He appeared awake and alert, and yes, she believed eight o’clock on Saturdays was too damn early for greeting the weekend. “I’m more for stumbling out of bed around ten for brunch.”

“Is this how you usually respond to people who offer you greetings?” Dev’s grumpy tone sounded as sexy as any other tonality he’d used with her.

Get a hold of yourself.

Blitz: What a Highlander’s Got to Do by Author Sabrina York

Blurb

Isobel Dounreay Lochlannach is a fierce and independent Scots lass. She has

no intention to marry—to submit to a man—especially not an Englishman.

But when she meets a devilish stable lad on the way to London, she can’t help

but sneak a kiss with the handsome stranger, sure to never see him again.

Nick Wyeth is not a stable lad. He’s Viscount Stirling, and heir to one of the most

powerful dukes in the realm. If their indiscretion is discovered, Isobel will be

forced to marry him, to succumb to a fate she has always spurned. Nick wants

nothing but to call this wild Scottish lass his own, and is determined to show her

how an English Viscount can make her swoon, and be his forever in What a

Highlander’s Got To Do by New York Times bestselling author Sabrina York.

Excerpt

With a sigh of regret, she took the reins of Lord Willouby’s stallion and mounted. Best be gone before he returned or she might be tempted to give him what he wanted.

She wanted it, too, which was stupid.

She was here for a few weeks while she waited for the various arms of her family to collect here, and then they would make the long trip down to London for a miserable Season. There was no time for a romance, and certainly not one with a farm boy. Not even one as handsome as he.

Though she had to admit, she was tempted.

She kicked the stallion into motion and began riding back the way she’d come.

What a pity.

She would have liked a kiss. Just one. She would have liked to know if he tasted as delicious as she imagined. She would have liked to have a story to tell Catriona, one that didn’t end with her plunging to her death into the River of the Broken Bridge.

She should have known he would follow.

She heard the hoofbeats behind her and urged her stallion on, bending low on his neck and whispering encouragement.

Her heart pounded.

She knew he would catch her.

He had before.

But still, she persevered.

She had no idea why she smiled. No idea why her soul sang.

No idea why, when he caught her, swooping her up into his arms and onto his lap, she laughed.

No idea why she smiled as he cupped her face with his still-damp hands and stared at her lips like a starving man.

No idea why, when his lips touched hers, fragrant and soft and oh-so-sweet, she sank into the kiss with all she had.

Or perhaps she did have an idea after all.

Excerpt
The curtain of hazy snow and steam around
them gave the sense that they were all alone in the world, a veil of cold mist
separating them from everything but one another.
Or maybe the wine was going to her head.
She felt a sweet happiness all over to be with Gabe. It was dangerous, perhaps,
to feel that way. But she’d never been with a man like him, someone strong and
noble, kind and warm hearted.
And so very sexy.
Her eyes dipped to the top of his chest
above the water as he drained his glass and set it aside, his triceps flexing
in a way that made her want to take a bite.
“I certainly didn’t expect a wedding gift.”
He shook his head, a wry smile kicking up one side of his mouth. “We’ll have to
make our own rules for this marriage since the regular conventions aren’t going
to apply.”
“Like tonight, for example.” She hadn’t
meant to say it out loud, but there it was, floating on the cold breeze before
she could take it back. Drawing a steadying breath, she explained herself. “I
don’t need to worry about your expectations because—”
“Because there are none.” He cupped her
shoulders with his hands, a warm weight that anchored her in the swirling
water. “I thought we deserved this time together to get to know each other as
more than friends, but I will be glad just to talk to you tonight. To learn how
to make you happy.”
“I know that.” She wanted to close her eyes
and concentrate on how his hands felt on her. To soak up all the sensations of
being with him. “You never made me feel like you brought me here for more than
that, but still…it’s a wedding night. I can’t deny I’ve been thinking about the
possibilities of what that means.”
His thumbs skated a slow circle over the
tops of her shoulders, a subtle touch that set the rest of her on fire.
“I’ve been doing plenty of thinking of my
own,” he admitted. “But that doesn’t mean we have to act on it.”
If he kept touching her, though, the
possibility of her launching across the hot tub to kiss him was very real.
“When I said I wasn’t all that experienced,
I didn’t mean to suggest I’ve never been with a guy. Of course I have.” Though
she had kept her virginity longer than any of her friends, haunted by her
stepmother’s taunts long after they should have lost their power to hurt her.
“I just don’t feel like I ever got high marks. You know?”
“Sex shouldn’t be a graded assignment.” He
said it with one-hundred-percent seriousness.
But she laughed anyway, because it was a
strange conversation for a wedding night. “Right. I get that.” She flipped a
damp piece of hair out of her eyes as she warmed to the discussion. “But when I
decided to lose my virginity, I think I was probably…too determined. I did some
research and felt well-prepared, but in the end—epic fail.” She shook her head,
remembering the expression on her boyfriend’s face afterward. It hadn’t been
blissful pleasure.
More like being shell-shocked, maybe.
“The thought of you researching to the
point of being over prepared is going to animate some very good dreams for me.”
He never stopped touching her. His thumbs trailed down the satin straps of her
bra in the back. Then in the front. Over and over. “It’s my turn to be
intrigued.”
“I think I was studying techniques that
were too advanced for a beginner.” She shrugged, the water around her splashing
with the movement. “But I don’t like looking foolish, and I’d waited so long to
give sex a try that I put a lot of pressure on myself not to make it obvious
that I was a first-timer.”
“What about afterward?” Gabe’s knee grazed
hers under the water and she didn’t skitter away because it felt too good.
“Didn’t things get better once the first time was out of the way?”
“I wasn’t keen to repeat the experiment at
the time.” She retrieved her wineglass and took another small sip. “But now, I
think maybe I’d like to.”

Book Blitz: Master Me, Please by BJ Wane

Title: Master Me, Please
Series: Miami Masters #2
Author: BJ Wane
Publisher: Blushing Books
Genre: Erotic/BDSM Romance
Release Date: November 10, 2017
Blurb
Krista Matthews thought nothing could be harder than losing her husband
and Master to suicide until the man he’d entrusted her care to left her
also.  By the time Dr. Dax Hayes returned
from an overseas, volunteer medical tour, she thought she was over his
deflection and ready to re-immerse herself in the BDSM world she needed and
missed so much without his help.  One
scene proved how wrong she was and after Master Dax’s timely rescue, she agrees
to let him tutor her back into the lifestyle. 
She hadn’t counted on her growing feelings for the strict Dom or his
refusal to take her over completely, like she craved.
Dr. Dax Hayes fell for Krista Matthews the minute he looked into her
blue eyes and saw the sated, content look she shared with her husband, Dr. Kurt
Matthews.  He managed to keep his
feelings and lust under control until his friend and colleague asked him to
join him in gifting Krista with a menage for her birthday.  Knowing it was a mistake, but unable to
resist, Dax succumbs to the temptation of this one-time scene, never realizing
where it would lead.  A year later, after
sealing his fate with a questionable act, he flees on a guilt trip only to
return and discover nothing had changed-he still wanted Krista Matthews with an
ache that wouldn’t be assuaged by anyone else. 
Unable to resist stepping in when she gets herself in trouble, Dax
again gives in to temptation and aids the one woman he can never have back into
the lifestyle her submissive nature needed. 
When Krista learns the truth, will her feelings be strong enough to
forgive him, or did he gamble everything only to lose it all in the end?
DISCLAIMER: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements
of power exchange, BDSM, including explicit sexual scenes and anal play. If any
of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

Excerpt
“Why didn’t
you stop?” Dax growled at the other man, each of them positioned at Krista’s
sides and reaching to undo the cuffs.
“I didn’t
hear her,” he snapped in defense, his posture as rigid and unapologetic as his
icy tone.  “She should’ve spoken up
louder.”
Dax snapped
his mouth shut and turned his attention to Krista’s shaken, perspiration damp
body as she collapsed into his arms. 
Regardless of the less than favorable circumstances and his guilt, it
felt damn good to feel the press of her soft, lush curves again.  Lust joined his rage, the two volatile
emotions a bad combination when they revolved around her.  Wrapping one arm around her slender
shoulders, he allowed her to bury her face in his shoulder for now as he
reached for the clothes the Dom handed out. 
“My
apologies.”
Nodding,
Dax watched the man stalk off without a backward glance and gritted his teeth
against the urge to snap at him again. 
His indifference to Krista’s struggles proved what an asinine Dom he
was, but nothing else.  He sure as hell
didn’t intend to call him back to fulfill his duties and take care of his
sub.  That job just landed in his arms,
and he wouldn’t turn away from it this time like he had after Kurt’s death.  Temporarily, for good or bad, she’d just
become his to see to, at least for now.     
“Get
dressed.  We’re leaving.”
