Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.

The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.

Share.

They shared me.

But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?

Not one single thing.

That was my boyfriend, Drew.

And that was the last time I saw him.

Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.

You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.

Never faced consequences.

Until today.

Game on.

* * *

A Harmless Little Game is the first in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

Excerpt

“I’m sorry,” he says. My ear is pressed against his broad, hard chest. I feel the words more than I hear them. The vibration and cadence make it clear he’s apologizing. Heat radiates off him like he’s the sun and I’m in his orbit.I break away. I’m not his moon.

“You should be sorry,” I snap, marching toward my destination, fighting the soft ground. I don’t want to talk to him. I don’t want to do this. Not now. Definitely not right now. I haven’t seen him for four years. Four long, painful, horrible years. More than 1,400 days of waking every morning knowing I wasn’t with him. Knowing he sat there that night and did nothing while three men raped me. Degraded me. Used and abused me and enjoyed it.

My body goes into a full-blown supernova, skin on fire at the thought. My rage cannot be contained by a mere mortal body.

I turn around. He’s right there, following me.

“Go the fuck away, Drew. I told you. I hate your guts. Leave me alone.”

At least, I think that’s what I say. My mind can’t process words and thoughts right now. I am fixated on the red door at the back entrance of the house, the sprawling mansion that is the only home I’ve ever known, aside from Daddy’s townhome in Washington D.C. If I can make it to that red door without Drew touching me, if I can make it to my bedroom and to my medications where I can take enough to fall asleep, maybe I can get my brain to work again.

And stop the flood of emotions that are making me crazy.

FREE Blitz: The Rules by Clare James

 

 

Title: The Rules
A Fun & Games Series Prequel
Author: Clare James
Genre: Steamy Rom/Com, Erotic Romance 
Release Date: January 16, 2016
Blurb
Rule #1: Never
discuss our arrangement with anyone.
When you make a deal with a stripper, there are bound to be some rules. I get
that. But this first one made me chuckle. It was like Fight Club (you know,
“the first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.”) Except in
our version, there was sex…and a few other things that I’d never heard of.

Truthfully, I never intended to befriend a stripper named Tash, or agree to her
crazy plan. But when you’re batting zero-for-a-million and there’s no relief in
sight, the situation becomes pretty damn desperate. See, I was in a terrible
dry spell—no, scratch that. I was in a freaking drought.

Tash said she could help…if I gave her seven days and followed her rules.


So what exactly did she have in mind, you ask? Read on, I’m getting to that
part…
*The Rules, a stand-alone prequel, can be read as an introduction to the
bestselling Fun and Games Series, or to learn more about this alpha hero at any
time during the series*

Author’s note: This book was previously published under the title, DIRTY.

Trailer


Excerpt

When I
arrived at the Met, it was after nine. Hundreds of people were flocking out of
the front doors. I was panting. My eyes searched the crowd in desperation for
her. I hoped I wasn’t too late. Finally, after the crowd had thinned, I spotted
her. She was wearing a drab gray wool coat and a striped knit hat along with a
new pair of eyeglasses that were almost identical to the ones she’d left at my
loft. She looked worn-out as she trudged down the steps. Fuck. Maybe something
was wrong with her. I mounted the steps two at time, hoping to meet her half
way.
“Allee,” I
shouted out to her.
Her mouth
dropped open when she saw me. She galloped down the steps, attempting to run
past me, but I caught her and held her firmly in my arms. She squirmed, trying
to break away, but she was no match for my strength. I studied her face. Her
eyes were painfully sad and her cheeks were sallow. She had lost weight.
“Get away
from me, Madewell,” she begged. There were tears in her eyes.
 I didn’t let go of her and, in fact, squeezed
her tighter. “Why haven’t you returned my calls?”
“Madewell,
please! Let go of me.” Her voice was watery and desperate.
“No, you’re
not going anywhere until you answer my question.”
“I don’t
belong with you. You’re too good for me.”
“No, baby,
you’re too good for me.” I pressed her even tighter against me.
Thunder
roared in the night sky.
“Please!
I’ve gotta go home and get ready for a massage client.”
Maybe she
had just been overworking. Fuck her client. I tugged hard at her ponytail that
hung out from under her funky hat. “You’re coming home with me.”
“I can’t.”
She blinked back tears. “You don’t understand—”
“Stop it!”
I crushed my lips against hers, hushing her, and pulled her down to a sitting
position on the step where we were sparring. She couldn’t resist my assault.
Her tongue hungrily met mine, and a hot bolt of energy surged through my
body.   
Lightening
flashed, and another loud burst of thunder followed. The sky opened up, and
torrential rain fell upon us. But it didn’t stop us. Soaked, our embrace
deepened, the warmth of it fending off the icy chill of the pounding drops. I
don’t know how long it lasted, but she was the first to pull away. Wet streaks
rolled down her cheeks… tears, not the rain.
“Why me,
Madewell?” she asked, her voice hoarse and strained.
“Because,
Allee Adair, I’m suffocating without you. You’re the air I need to breathe.”
Cradling her in my arms, I removed her rain-streaked glasses and brushed away
the shimmering rivulets dripping down her face. Just the mere touch of her
infused me with light.
She looked
deep into my eyes, hers still watering. “Oh, Madewell, I’m so afraid.”
“Afraid of
what, baby?” I held her tear-drenched face in my hands.
Her lips
quivered. “That I’ll hurt you.”
 That wasn’t possible, I thought as I swept her
into my arms and carried her down the rain-soaked steps, my lips never leaving
hers.
***
I carried
her straight into my bathroom steam room. She was shivering wet. I set her down
and rapidly peeled off her drenched layers of clothing. I removed mine just as
fast. She let me wrap my arms around her naked body and hold her close to me as
a cloud of steam warmed us. Tears were still streaming down her beautiful face,
mingling with steamy mist. I sealed my mouth over hers and kissed her deeply
and passionately. With my lips still covering hers, I lifted her up off the
water-coated tiled floor.
“Wrap your
legs around me, baby,” I breathed into her ear.
She did as
I asked, twisting her long limbs around my waist like a pretzel. I carried her
to the edge of the steamy room and pressed her against the dripping wet back
wall, just high enough so that my cock could shoot easily into her glorious
pussy. Her arms wrapped around my shoulders.
“Baby, I’ve
missed you so much.” I studied her angelic face, made dreamy in the steamy
haze. My lips latched onto to hers and pressed into another deep, tongue-driven
kiss. Her velvety breasts skimmed my chest. I groaned as my girth grew between
my legs.
“Oh, Golden
Boy,” she rasped as my mouth released hers. “Make me come.”

EXCERPT

© 2017 A.L. Jackson Books
Tension roiled between us. That tether pulled taut. Drawing us closer. I swallowed around it and
reached for the latch. He was quick to open his door, jumping out and rounding to my side before I had
time to step out of his massive truck. He helped me down, and his hand scorched where he aided me by
holding on to my elbow.
“Let me walk you to the door. Last thing I need to be worried about is you here by yourself
and some asshole taking advantage of you.”
He quirked this belly-flopping grin that pierced me like an arrow. “Unless of course that
asshole is me.”
He barely angled his head to the side. There was something so endearing and self-deprecating
about it. Everything about him right then was at odds with the surly, bear of a man I’d met weeks
ago, the man exposing himself, layer by layer.
I lifted my chin, both in strength and vulnerability, tossing all the uncertainties and questions out
into the open. “Should I be afraid?”
“Yeah, you should be.” His response was hard, but there was no missing the fact his
irritation was aimed at himself. He set his palm on the small of my back, helping me through the gravel
drive in my heels, an inch behind as we ascended the porch steps.
We crossed the planks. That tension wound higher with each step until we were nothing but needy
pants at my door. Slowly, I turned around to face him.
His presence sent a ripple of energy vibrating across the floorboards, the overwhelming sight of
him the owner of my breath.
He stood beneath the faint glow of the hurricane lamp that hung outside the door. A sculpture of
sinewy muscle and raw strength, forged through years of obvious physical labor. Every inch of him was
rugged, from those roughened, callused hands to the crinkles set deep at the edges of his eyes.
The man was a carving of pure, daunting beauty.
“What exactly am I supposed to be afraid of, Rex?” My brow twisted, and my voice
quieted with the admission. “Because when I’m around you, the last thing I feel is
afraid.”
“I fuck everything up, Rynna, and the only thing I’ve got to offer you is my mess. I
can’t do this.”
Restraint rumbled in his chest, the sound so deep I felt it shake the ground beneath my feet.
I gently cupped one side of his rugged face. “I’m not afraid.”
It was a promise.
An appeal.
“You should be,” he grated. “Warned you, my shit doesn’t ever end
well.”
“Maybe that’s a chance I’m willing to take.”
He groaned and he planted his hands high above my head. The man panted above me, torn,
desperate, his nose just brushing mine. “God damn it, Rynna. God damn it.”
I felt the moment he broke. When the thread pulled too tight and this mesmerizing man snapped.
His mouth descended on mine.
Overpowering.
Overwhelming.
Dizzying.
Lips and tongue and nips of teeth.
And those hands. They were on my face. My neck. My waist. Somehow, I managed to hold on to
him and spin away as I fumbled with the lock. He pressed against my backside, his cock against my
bottom, and his mouth leaving a trail of fire at the side of my neck. We stumbled into the darkness of
my house, breaking apart as I turned to face him.
The only light trickled down from the lamp I’d left on upstairs.
Slowly, he clicked the door shut behind him. We stood there, two feet away from each other,
staring.
Chests heaving.
Before we collided.
A tangle of tongues and bodies.
The man frantic, trying to touch me everywhere.
“What am I doing? Fuck, what am I doing?” he muttered incoherently, kissing me
deeper. Madder. Wilder.
I pushed up on my toes and tore my mouth from his so I could kiss down the strong column of his
throat. His head thudded back against the door, his entire body pressing against it as if he needed it to
keep him standing.
He grated my name, and I kept kissing at his throat while I worked free the button on his jeans,
hands shaking.
Every reservation spun out of control.
Out of reach.
It was only spurred further when the defined muscles of his abdomen jumped and twitched
beneath my touch, when he mumbled, “You’re killing me, Rynna. Fucking killing
me.”
Desire rippled from him in heady waves.
And I felt so brave and bold, my kisses brazen as I nipped at the hollow of his throat.
Before I could consider it—the ramifications and the repercussions and the distinct threat to
my heart—I dropped to my knees.
I refused to think of anything but setting him free.
Hoping he’d find a little of that freedom in me.

Excerpt
Getting
caught reading Fifty Shades of Grey in the parking lot at work wasn’t the best
way to meet her boss. A boss she didn’t know she had. A boss who now had the
job she had been waiting to apply for (and win) for the past year. 
So Lydia
Charles was having a very bad day. And it was only 7:32 a.m.
Tap tap
tap. She looked up, startled, to find a pair of bright green eyes, shaded by a
hand, peering in the window of her little red car. He caught the book cover and
smirked.  
Oh, screw
off, she thought, shoving her car key in the ignition and turning it on so she
could roll down the window. As if it weren’t bad enough being caught reading
Mommy Porn (and she wasn’t even a mom), her last few minutes of freedom before
enslavement as a corporate drone were being bothered by some anonymous
guy. 
Light brown
hair with a nice wave to it and those crazy-green eyes. A perfect nose. Broad
shoulders set off by one hand on his forehead, one on his hip, making his
forearms pop a bit, the muscles from neck to shoulder joint stretching like an
athlete’s. It was like looking at one of those guys on television, an actor in
a show you watch not for the plot, but for the eye candy with a spark of smarts
and wit.
If he told
her he was a firefighter or a detective, she’d believe him. He had the look of
a man who takes care of himself because he has to in order to function well at
his hands-on job.
He works
out, she surmised as the window scrolled down. Boring business-casual uniform
of Dockers and a button-down shirt. Couldn’t see his shoes but she guessed
something from Land’s End. 
Middle
management.
Which was
one step above her. Gritting her teeth, she wondered what this was about.

Author: Meli Raine

Release Date: July 28, 2015
Blurb

On a dark, rainy night I drove my overstuffed junker car back to a town I never expected to see again.

And when I needed a rescue by the side of the road, a six-foot tall piece of hot, unfinished business named Mark was what the universe sent me.

Three years earlier I’d fled town (and Mark) to follow my wrongly-convicted father to his federal prison, working crappy jobs to stay afloat and visit him every second I could.

But now Dad’s dead and I’m mysteriously offered the best job of my life at the college where his life blew up when he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Someone wants me here. Desperately.

I’m hoping it’s Mark.

Because if it’s not, I’m in more danger than I ever imagined.

And if it is?

Mark may be the most dangerous choice of all.

Excerpt

Life is
divided into two parts now: Before and After.
As I
literally peel my wet clothes off, my fingers touch my arms where Mark’s hands
have just been. I close my eyes and imagine him standing before me. My t-shirt sticks
to my breasts and I edge my fingers over the v-neck. The slide of wet cloth
against my nipples reminds me of his mouth. We’d gone nice and slow, four years
ago, when we started dating. His mouth only roamed from mine in the last
intimate moment we’d had before he… 
Before.
A long,
slow sigh fills me. I forget to exhale. My jeans put up a battle in my
undressing, catching at the ankles. I fall and grab the tub’s edge. My butt
tumbles onto the thick little bathroom area rug. The color is a princess pink
that reminds me of my old bedroom. When I was little, living with Dad and when
my mother was still alive.
That’s like
double Before.
Frustration
fills me as the feel of Mark’s arms around me on the wet side of the road
twists in my mind. My body is on fire now, even when it’s wet and cold.
He had to
be the first person I saw, didn’t he? Why? I don’t believe in fate. I don’t
believe in destiny. I don’t believe in soulmates.
Pain? That
I can believe in. Betrayal and deception and lies are real, too. 
Fate is
just another lie.
