My father, Samuel Darcy, wrecked everything he touched—the business, our family, my mother. I knew if I didn’t stop him he’d destroy it all. So I got down and dirty, stopped playing by the rules, and rolled in the mud right along with him. I bartered my soul, and in the end, I lost the one thing that I wanted most in this world…. my wife.
Six months ago, Annalee gave me an ultimatum. Tell her about my secrets, or move out. I can’t confess to her that I’ve done shady business dealings to ruin my own father. In the end I let her go.
But now? Now I can have her back. Taking down my dad, I learned that you don’t get what you want by following the rules. What I want now is my wife back. I want her back in my life and in my bed….I’m playing to win, and I’ll fight as dirty as I have to.

To making her mine again.
I’ve seen promises broken.
I know love makes no guarantees.

His name rushes from my mouth on a breath, and I’m off the bed, hurling myself at him top speed. Somehow my legs wrap around his waist and my arms tangle behind his neck. I couldn’t hold back and play this cool if I wanted to. Every part of me that’s been fighting to stay focused, to keep working, to be on, collapses against him. Surrenders to the feel of him in my arms and the smell of him. My fingers lace through his hair. I scatter kisses across his face, the sharp angles and taut skin warm beneath my lips.
“So I take it you’re happy to see me?” He chuckles, pressing his forehead to mine, hands squeezing my thighs.
“Happy?” I release something that’s half a sob, half a laugh, pulling back a few centimeters to let him breathe. “What gave you that idea?”
We stop grinning at the same time, laughter dissolving, our bodies exchanging sensual information. My breasts flattened to his chest. His erection growing and hardening against my core. Our breaths mingling and hearts tattooing beats through our clothes and into the other’s skin.
I move first, leaning in to capture his bottom lip between mine, sucking and pulling between my teeth. Licking into his mouth like there’s honey hidden inside. He groans into the kiss, walking backward until we reach the bed and dropping me so I bounce a little, his eyes roving over me head to toe.
“Pep, what the hell are you wearing?” Humor and desire tussle in his eyes.
I look down, laughing when I see the young Jackson brothers emblazoned across my chest, my legs ending in the footed bottoms.
“If I’d known you were coming, I could have made sexier arrangements.”
“Arrangements?” He quirks a dark brow, placing a knee on either side of my legs, hovering over me like a promise. “Lingerie would have been nice. Other rock stars have girlfriends who wear lingerie.”
“Oh, are you referring to yourself as a rock star now?” I grin up at him, feeling whole for the first time since he kissed me goodbye a week ago. “That’s not egomaniacal at all. Is there a club? You guys have rock star meetings? Does one of you take rock star minutes?”
“You are sitting in here listening to my music in the dark.” He leans forward to tug at the zipper beneath my chin. “Maybe you’re actually one of my crazed fans. Or a groupie. I might even find a Mrs. Rhyson Gray t-shirt around here somewhere. My girlfriend doesn’t like those.”
“No, she doesn’t.” I shake my head, eyes never straying from his.
A small frown jerks his brows together. He tugs again at the zipper, but it doesn’t budge.
“Pep, it’s stuck,” he says.
“Sometimes it does that,” I answer easily, enjoying the frustration spreading over his expression as he keeps pulling and it keeps staying.
He places my hand over his cock, hard and poking through his jeans.
“Well, it’s not exactly a good time for it to do that.”
I laugh, grasping my zipper and tugging. Wow, it really is stuck. These are vintage PJs, older than I am and threadbare in places. I’m surprised the zipper hasn’t rusted before now. I sit up, bringing our bodies closer as I jiggle the little hook a few times. Nothing.
“Just how attached are you to this Jackson Five onesie?” His glance burns hot across my subtle curves visible through the thin flannel, telegraphing his intentions.
“Well this is Michael’s original nose.” I release a fake exasperated sigh. “But I do have my sewing kit.”
“All I needed to hear.”
He grabs the two ends of the collar separated by the zip line and pulls until there’s a ripping sound, the panels falling back to reveal my naked breasts and my panties. A wicked grin spreads across lips.
“You naughty girl.” He runs a finger over the writing on the front of my calendar panties, carrying a current that simultaneously hitches my breath and gets me wet. “Wearing Monday panties on a Thursday. My little rebel.”

A gilded cage is still a cage.
From the womb, she was owned. Shula Kelley was signed away before her first breath, just like everyone else in secessionist Texas. She was called beautiful like it meant something important. Like it would get her a kind husband, or one less cruel. She hoped Jared Agnesson was kind.
And the devil you know is still the devil.
As punishment for his son’s rebellion, the patriarch of the Agnesson clan claimed Shula for his own. And she saw only one way out. Shula had a plan, but she didn’t realize it would require a savior.
Suffer not the sins of the father.
First acts of rebellion open doors that are best left closed. Until Jared walked through it. Her savior. But how can she truly love when she only knows obedience?
“I‒” She removed her hand from her knickers.
“Don’t do that, my love. Pretend I’m not here if you must, but I’m going to watch you, and you will continue.” His need was just at the surface, but he found he wanted to hold on to it, just a bit, no matter how unsettling it was to him. He was quite spoiled by his bride, and she tended to his every desire, whether she realized it or not.
But this was different. This was unexplored territory. He hadn’t realized desire could be on a spectrum and that revelation made him want to feel everything all at once. Do everything all at once. The thought of untapped desire was distressing. Intoxicating.
Oh God. He wanted to watch her? She couldn’t. She just couldn’t. She arranged her night dress and sat up, deeply ashamed, but found herself quickly on her back with her husband over her, palm pressing the center of her chest. “No, Shula. I said you will continue.” He barely recognized his voice. He grabbed her right hand and pressed it to her damp panties. His zipper rubbed against the back of her hand, and she could feel he was hard.
He was going to make her. He’d never made her do anything she hadn’t wanted before, so why was he making her now? To punish her? Surely not. “I don’t think I can, Jared. I don’t want to displease you, but I’m terribly embarrassed, and I don’t want you to think‒” That you’re not enough, she thought miserably to herself.
“Think what, Shula? Tell me.” Her panties were moved to the side and his thumb a centimeter from her clitoris. It was maddeningly still. His mouth spoke into hers after a thorough kiss. “Tell me, and I might help you out.”
Shula was relieved. Not for the help, but because she hadn’t wanted him angry. “I’ve just done this since I was young, and I don’t know. I just enjoy it.”
“Well, then. Let me make it better for you.”
“You do‒Oh!” His face was between her legs, lapping fully at her labia. “Now. I want to watch very closely.” He circled her clitoris with his tongue before moving back out. “Do it.”
And she did. Her fingers moved rapidly, while his tongue and mouth tasted and explored everything else. His tongue would work its way in beside her fingers and she would buck against his face. He didn’t bother dissuading her.
He felt slight tremors against his face and decided he wanted to draw this out a bit more. “Stop.”
It took her a few seconds to comprehend it, but she did. She removed her hand and clutched it to her chest. She didn’t know what she was doing wrong. She was afraid she would cry if she spoke.
Jared saw. He saw how he scared her, and it was intolerable. “Shula, love. Slow down. That’s all.” He kissed the skin of her thigh closest to his mouth. “Slow, slow, slow,” he begged. He kissed her fingers once they found their way back.
He watched her. He saw how her body adapted to a slower pace. He saw how she would quicken, then slow again as she was getting closer.
He could watch this for hours.
Arden Aoide lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and three cats. Turn ons include men who cry during sex, long walks on the beach, and talking about herself in the third person. Turn offs include mean people and trying to figure out how to write an interesting author bio.
She doesn’t write about the typical men you normally read about in erotic romance novels. She likes her men brainy and just this side of manic.
She’s an introvert, she loves coffee, Internet, British television, and pot stickers. And pie. She loves pie.

Excellent – a must-read!

The pasta’s boiling over, and she can’t get the jar of sauce open to save her life. Getting dinner done by the time her husband walks in the door is something she prefers, so they can relax together and talk about their day.
He comes home and has no idea how her day went. He only knows how his own has gone and it wasn’t the greatest. Stopping on the threshold of the kitchen, he sees pots boiling over, timers going off and his wife standing with her back to him, crying and cursing the jar in her hands.

I, Cassandra Straight, have loved Reed Shamrock to distraction since I was a teenager. I even watched him fall in love with someone else and almost get married.
A year ago, when he walked into his house and found his fiancée’s face in his best friend’s crotch, his life changed forever and it hasn’t been the same since.
On his first night out since the horrible incident, we run into the ex-skank. Seeing the devastation in his eyes, I made a promise that I would help him get over her. I told him that a pretend relationship between us would work. It would help him move on.
I didn’t count on my heart or his getting in the way. And I sure as hell didn’t count on not being able to tell when pretend turned to reality. When it all implodes, the only thing left is the truth.
Sometimes though, the truth? It hides and we have to dig deep to find it. To make it come to the surface, we have to give it a little talking to. We have to give it a little Sass.
Included in the back of Sass is an exclusive sneak peak of “Renegade” – the first book in a new series for 2017!

Title: Delicate Love
Author: Josephine Brierley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 5 February
Life has dealt some heavy blows to Mackenzie Tillar. Bullied as a child, and no one to turn to, the one person, who was meant to protect her, to raise her, and surround her with unconditional love, had let her down. Kenzie learnt to deal with life in her own promiscuous way. Until that one fateful night when she met Sam, now she was contemplating breaking the very rules she had instigated.
For Samuel Edwards, being orphaned at a very young age meant that he found his own way in life. He lives it as he pleases, no room for relationships, no belief in love. It was never a part of his life. He’d never craved it, and never missed it. Until one night when he meets his match with Kenzie, she has the same rules, same fears.
They are both void of love, both not even searching for anything else. Fate brings them together, and thirty-six questions ignite a spark in them both. Could thirty-six questions lead to love? It was an experiment worth exploring.
Now they are playing a game, a game that suggests more, but is it more than they have bargained for?
** This book is Part 1 in a series, but is a stand-alone. There is no cliffhanger.
**This book contains some sexual content and disturbing situations. Over 18 years
Can you want ‘more’ from someone when you’re not sure what that more is?
We meet Samuel and MacKenzie in Delicate Love – two broken souls living in the moment, for the moment…until they meet each other. A random one night hook-up, which includes questions from The Thirty-Six Questions That Lead To Love…and more passion than they’ve both ever experienced…leaves them each questioning their personal choices about love and relationships. However, it’s not enough to keep Mackenzie from doing what she does best…run. Sam is disappointed when he wakes up the next morning alone in bed. He wanted to know more about the sexy, mysterious woman…he wanted to spend more time with her, and those are things he’s never wanted before.
Though the one night they shared together seems to be on constant replay in each of their minds, Sam and Kenzie move on and move forward, becoming involved with others, and unbeknownst to them – living in the same town. A chance meeting at a house warming months later brings back memories of their night together, and much awkwardness. So begins the dance of dysfunctional friendship…and the continuation of The Thirty-Six questions.
Traumatic childhoods have shaped the personalities of this non-couple. They don’t do relationships and they definitely don’t do love. But still, there is something there that draws them together, something neither of them has felt before.
Terrified of his feelings for Kenzie – and in a generic relationship with a distracted blond, Sam battles an internal war. He knows his current relationship is not for him. He knows he wants Kenzie, but can he really do forever? Kenzie’s demons are just as bad, but for all her independence and words of wisdom from her late mother, she got on my last good nerve. By no means, am I discounting or downplaying the hard knocks life has given her, but…dayum. At what point do you take ownership and responsibility of your own life…and by responsibility I don’t mean running away every time you ‘feel’ something.
Kenzie had times when she seemed so focused and positive, but five minutes inside her own head quickly changed that. She was reactive instead of proactive, making horrible decisions…one which nearly ended her life. Meh.
Much respect for Lily, Rebekah, cousin Zoe and Aunt Sophie. They stuck by and supported Kenzie…maybe even a little too much. They each gave her sound, honest advice – and she took it to heart and became proactive…for a New York minute. Afterwards she’d do the ‘Kenzie Over-Think’ and Run. Away. Meh.
It’s Sam’s persistence that melts your heart. He isn’t any less damaged than Kenzie, but he is willing to take a risk…and the thirty-six questions help him keep the door open. They also give him much insight into Kenzie…and himself.
This is not a cozy, feel-good read. It is a journey of two people broken as children, who try to move beyond the burdens of their pasts, to make decisions in the present that will affect their future. 1-click it today.
Josephine (Jo) is that person that watches the world turn, studying the characters that exist in life each day, finding different personalities, traits and attributes that can be worked into the stories that flow into her head.
She loves the escapism of writing, finding the time to create new characters whenever she can. With the support and encouragement of her husband, Jo has completed her second novel.
Delicate Love is an adult contemporary romance, with just a touch of anguish. Its real life, mixed with angst and romance. The story revolves around 36 questions that were originally written as an experiment by Arthur Aron, 41 years ago. His aim at the time was to have a couple fall in love within his laboratory, to prove that intimacy could be encouraged. The laboratory part sounds romantic doesn’t it?
Chasing Butterflies was Jo’s debut novel, and is a story she decided she wanted to tell after her own experience with breast cancer. In July 2012, Jo decided that a Bilateral Mastectomy was the best option for her after being diagnosed. Thankfully she was given the all clear after her surgery. It is a story based loosely on her own breast cancer journey, a story of a young woman who faces decisions that no one should have to and finds love along the way.
Jo lives on the Gold Coast, Australia, with her husband Rob, and pet dog Paris. Together they love entertaining, good times with friends and enjoying life.

“Claiming His Prize (Feral Breed Followings #2)” by Ellis Leigh
Released: March 15, 2016
“Claiming His Prize” IS a Prize!
Each time I read an Ellis Leigh ‘Feral Breed’ book, I proclaim it the best ever and my brand new favorite. No reason to change the routine this late in the game! “Claiming His Prize”…this book…this book is EVERYTHING!
A grumpy dragon shifter and a determined doc engage in a battle of wills, and a battle for survival. But this isn’t your typical “fated mates eventually” tale.
MMA fighter Piers/Tidal is interested, but Doc Jane is off limits. If for no other reason than the terms of her “employment.” The infatuated couple have a moment or two, but to keep her father safe, Jane knows she has no future with Piers. She has no future at all, except for keeping fighters patched up and in the ring for slimy wolf shifter and club owner, Mick. He’s really a hard to character to take. To have been good friends with Jane’s father for so many years, only to end up being a parasitic douche bag with control over Jane’s life.
However, Jane comes face to face with an evil darker than she’d ever imagined, and it claims her as its mate. While Jane may have resigned herself to a life in service to Mick, she would rather die than be claimed by a deranged shifter. As her time grows short, Jane is desperate to get away.
She ends up “partially” confiding in Piers, and this leads to, IMHO, one of the best scenes of the book. This one short scene has open communication, compassion, TRUST and vulnerability! Even though she’s unable to tell him why she needs to know, Piers lowers his guard and gives Jane the information she requested. It is something no shifter, especially a dragon, would ever voice to anyone – his weakness. This is very telling of the level of trust Piers has in Jane. There is no commitment or bond between them, and she could very well use the information against him. It also shows how deeply he has come to care for Jane. He can tell something is wrong, and if he can’t keep her safe, he will give her the means to protect herself. Excellent!
This author is one of a handful I’ve read who delivers female characters of substance. She doesn’t tell us who they are, she shows us. In Jane, we have a heroine who actually deserves the title. She is witty and smart…and she has strength! She’s accepted her lot in life to keep her father safe, but that does not make her a pushover. When backed into a corner, she pushes back. Even against opponents she has no chance of besting, Jane fights. Piers wants to protect her, and she knows he will come for her if he can, but Jane does not wait for him. If she has to die, she will do it fighting. There is a scene where Jane grabs an acetylene torch that I just had to stop reading and cheer! Go, Jane!
This is a short read that is long on details. The author’s world building is on point as myths and truths of dragon lore are brought to light. Characters are well developed and extremely likable, except for the villains, who will make even the kindest heart wish bad curses upon them.
I LOVE my Feral Breed wolf shifters – but Piers is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Team him up with Jane…and you just don’t stand a chance.
