PROLOGUE
COLE
Have you
ever been to a funeral where the preacher stands before the friends and loved
ones of the deceased and talks about how shitty the person was? How he fucked
around on his wife? Or spent his family’s life savings to feed his gambling
addiction? How about during his bachelor party when he snorted coke off a
hooker’s ass?
Me neither.
Why is it
that we’re fucking saints the moment we die?
You hear
the preacher say things like, “Oh, John
Smith was a lovely man who loved his wife and kids,”
when he should really
be saying, “John Smith was a worthless
piece of shit who fucked the underage babysitter every chance he fucking got
while his wife was busy working two jobs and raising his ungrateful children.”
And let’s
not forget that the deceased in that casket before you never even went to
church. Let alone knew the preacher who speaks so highly of him. All he knows
are the stories the blinded loved ones wrote down on a little card for him to
share.
He’s a fucking puppet.
I haven’t
read the Bible word for word, but I know the Lord says if we confess our sins
and ask for forgiveness, he will cleanse our souls, and we will be forgiven.
Poof. It’s like magic.
Now that
begs the question–what if you’re not sorry? What if you don’t care to be
forgiven?
No amount
of holy water could cleanse my soul, and I’m okay with that because when I
sinned, I understood that I would one day have to pay. We’re all going to die
eventually. You can be one of those people who bury your head in the sand to
avoid talking about it all you want, but it’s life!
Live or
die.
Heaven or
hell.
Angel or
devil.
It’s black
and white. There are no gray areas.
So tell me
… when you’re lying in that casket in front of your friends and family, what
are they going to think of you? Are they gonna believe that preacher who talks
bullshit, or are they gonna know you didn’t care if you were going to burn for
eternity?
I’m not a
religious person. Obviously. But I do know this. When I am damned to hell,
it’ll be because I fucking earned it.

Excerpt

The walk to his room was second nature—a quick elevator ride, take a right and go down four doors. A swift rap of my knuckles against the door, and then I waited for the overwhelming force that was Gavin Grayson.

“Hello,” he said as he opened the door. No scowl to greet me, no anger. There was a small upturn of his lips, a little more prominent on one side than the other.

A shudder rolled through me, my heart doing double time again.
“What’s wrong tonight?” I asked as I stepped into his room.
“You’re not in it,” he said.
My stomach flipped, and I felt heat flood my cheeks. How was it that in a few short weeks he had taken over my heart? I wanted, yearned for his praise. To get caught up in his eyes, loving the way they would soften and grow heavy as he looked at me.
I drew in a stuttered breath as he stepped forward and towered over me. In heels I was a decent five-feet-eight, but Gavin had to be a few inches over six feet tall—a commanding presence as he loomed over me.
“Emma?” He was so close I could feel his breath on my skin.
“Hmm?”
“I want you.”
The muscles in my thighs clenched and I stretched up toward him, almost begging him closer. “Yes.”
“To stop looking at me like that.”
The haze he covered me with suddenly cleared as I looked up at him. My stomach dropped as I tried to comprehend what happened. “What?”
He stepped away, his back turned to me. All of his muscles were tense, his fists clenching at his side.
“If that’s what you want, what do you need?” I asked.
His head fell back. “I thought I’d made that obvious.”
“I’m not sure,” I replied, more than a little surprised at how breathy my voice was. “I’ve gotten a lot of mixed messages.”
He moved back toward me. “You have me conflicted.”
“How so?”
“Because the last time I wanted a woman anywhere near this much, things didn’t end so well,” he began. “Because you’re young. Because you work for the hotel and not for me.” He reached out, his fingers caressing my clavicle before slipping up my neck. “Because nothing has ever seemed as taboo as your lips.”
My knees felt weak as he moved closer, my nipples tightening. There was no resistance as I waited with bated breath.
His lips were soft against mine, supple. A taste, a sample. It was perfect, and an electric pulse moved between us. Every ounce of want and desire sat in the small gap between our lips.
A squeak left me when he suddenly pressed forward, kissing deeper and more intensely than before. His free arm wound around my waist, pulling me closer to him while his mouth opened. I followed suit, wrapping my arms around his shoulders, pulling him closer. It was forceful and filled with more passion than I’d ever encountered, so much that it ignited an inferno inside me.
All I wanted was for him to keep touching me, to never stop.

Blurb

Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is the most sought-after back office operative around-

the creative genius pulling the ultimate bad-asses out of impossible situations.

She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important

mission ever-keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on

others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for

escape when she’s kidnapped.

She is the Edge.

The Edge never breaks.

Never quits.

Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The

Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do

whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready

to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her

back was simple. Keeping her and her “security system” HERA out of enemy

hands is another story.

Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent

torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What

they uncover could destroy them both.

Excerpt

“Bravo, Charlie has eyes on two packages. Repeat, two packages secured.” The gun lowered. Black marks ran below pasture green eyes and down across a firm, square jawline. Dark hair so brown it was almost black hung in disarray around the man’s handsome face.

Mary knew that face.

Relief washed through her. The sensation struck like a tsunami. Dizziness assailed her. Her stomach roiled, but she didn’t have the energy to puke.

Exfil.

She’d survived.

Two packages secured. The man’s words ricocheted through her.

No. No. No.

“Three.” She rasped the words.

Intense green eyes settled on her, then returned to Glenn, who’d stood.

“Get on your knees,” the man repeated to her fellow cellmate.

“It hurts,” he whined.

“Not telling you again.” The threat hung in the room, a fourth presence Mary suspected would overpower the man cowering beside her.

“Three,” she repeated. Her throat burned and throbbed with the effort she expended.

The man released his grip on the rifle. It settled against his side from the strap wrapped around thick, muscular shoulders. And arms. Mary trembled when he reached into a pocket and pulled out a water bottle.

Long legs ate the space between them until her tunneling gaze saw only thighs. He palmed her chin. “You’re safe now, Edge. We’ve got you.”

Sale Blitz: Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon by Julia Kent

Title: Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #11
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2017

Blurb
He is addicted to his phone and his new role as CEO. I’m addicted to
getting some on my own honeymoon.

One of these things is not like the other.

I am pretty sure a serial killer’s lair is the only place in the world where I
could stash my new husband so he can’t manage the acquisition of our new
company.

And that seems a little drastic.

But only a little…

All I want is one week alone with him. Hours in bed, legs tangled together in
ecstasy, room service and long walks on the beach in Hawaii.

Not vying for his kisses around a Bluetooth microphone. The Borg aren’t sexy in
real life.

So I’m taking matters into my own hands and hitting “reboot” on our honeymoon.

We’re going to a place so remote that no one can find us.

Not even my mother.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon is now a full-length book of 150+ pages,
with both Shannon and Declan’s points of view. Originally published with only
Shannon’s viewpoint, this expanded edition is a result of reader feedback.
People wanted to know what Declan was up to – so here you go. This book is
meant to be read after Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife and/or Shopping for a
CEO’s Fiancée, but if you read it out of order (or even as a standalone),
that’s fine. Shannon and Declan forgive you. 😉 An audiobook version of this
story is also available, featuring Zachary Webber as Declan and Tanya Eby as
Shannon.

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.
