Blurb
My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her
house and wake up on Christmas morning together. 
Sounds reasonable, right?
And it would be.
If it weren’t my mother.
My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly
intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my
childhood bed.
And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me
whimper when I have to say no.
Wait – why am I saying no again?
Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth
look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know
those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and
use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf
homes?
Those people are saner than my mother.
There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile —
than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.
Wait a minute. Maybe there is.
My husband.

Excerpt

“Here,” I
say, shaking the shirt free of cat hair. “Sounds like someone’s getting ready
for carols.” A few piano notes drift up the stairs.
“Carol’s
already here,” Dec replies as he sets Ellie down on hands and knees. She
promptly crawls over to the trash can, which is, thankfully, empty.
“Not Carol.
Carols. Christmas carols.”
He freezes,
arms up in the sleeves, about to pull the shirt over his head. Ah, what a pose.
The fire downstairs isn’t the only thing heating up in this house right now.
“We have to
sing?”
“Of course!
It’s tradition!”
Ellie
knocks the trash can over and claps for herself, looking at us as if to say, See what I did? Give me my gold medal.
Flesh show
over, Declan finishes pulling on his shirt. I burst into laughter at the vision
of my husband in horizontal green and white stripes, green piping around the
neck and cuffs of his pjs. I’m in red and white, and so is Ellie, with a big
white snowflake on her butt.
“What’s so
funny?”
“You look
like a piece of hard candy.”
He grabs my
hand and puts it on his crotch. “I could give you something to lick.”
“DEC! Not
in front of the baby!”

Release Blitz: Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby by Julia Kent

Title: Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #13
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 24, 2018

Blurb
You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.
We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor
books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.
And by we I mean me.
Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than
ready.
But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little
obsession with competition.
And by little, I mean stupid.
That’s right.
We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.
We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.
Harder.
McCormick men don’t just have babies.
They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.
I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with
my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s
baby.
Wrong.
Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through
a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law
determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my
pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.
But it’s nothing — nothing
compared to the actual birth.
Shopping for a
Billionaire’s Baby
is the newest book in Julia Kent’s New York Times
bestselling romantic comedy series and is a 400+ page full-length novel.

Excerpt


“Just
because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we
can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a
well-oiled machine, babies included.”
Andrew
snorts. “You really believe that.”
“A baby is
like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight
months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices
and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep
them in their swim lanes.”
I’m getting
major raised eyebrows here.
“Optimization
protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it
takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at
what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”
“You sound
like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”
“This baby
will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon,
how could we go wrong?” Mother. Calling Shannon a mother does something
to my gut. A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.

Excerpt

I realize
we’re still shaking hands, and his eyes are taking me in. “Uh, Shannon. Shannon
Jacoby. Nice to meet you.” I find my voice.
He looks
around the room and bursts out laughing, a flash of straight white teeth and a
jaw I want to nuzzle making me inhale sharply. That laugh is the sound of
extraordinary want entering my body, taking up residence low in my belly, and
now waiting for a chance to pick china patterns and paint colors to really
consider itself at home.
Go away,
want. I’ve banished you.
Want
ignores me and settles in, cleaning out the cobwebs that have taken up
residence where I used to allow desire and hope and arousal to live.
Squatter.
“Shannon,
this has to be the strangest way I’ve ever met a woman.” One corner of his
mouth curls up in a sexy little smile, like we’re on a beach drinking alcohol
out of coconuts carved by Cupid and not in a ratty old bathroom with a
fluorescent tube light that starts buzzing like a nest of mosquitoes at an
outdoor blood bank.
“You don’t
get around much, then,” I say. My toes start to curl as my body fights to contain
the wellspring of attraction that is unfurling inside me. No. Just…no. I
can’t let myself feel this. You spend enough time trying not to feel something
and all that work gets thrown away with one single flush.
He does
that polite laugh thing, eyes narrowing. I decide to just stare openly and
catalog him right back. Brown hair, clipped close, in a style that can only
come at the hands of the owner of a very expensive salon. The bluish-gray suit,
textured and smooth at the same time, shimmering and flat as well under the
twitchy light. Skin kissed by the sun but also a bit too light, as if he used
to spend a lot of time outdoors but hasn’t recently.
A body like
a tall tennis player’s, or a golfer’s, and not my dad with his pot-bellied
buddies getting in a round of nine holes at 4 p.m. just so they can have an
excuse to drink their dinner. Declan is tall and sleek, confident and
self-possessed. He moves like a lion, knowing the territory and owning it.
Always
aware of any movement that interests him.
I’m 5’ 9”
and he’s taller than me by at least half a foot. Tall girls always do a mental
check: could I wear high heels with him? Steve hated when I
wore high heels, because it put me eye-to-eye with him.
“What are
you doing in the men’s room?” he asks, smirking at me.

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.

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.
