EVERY LOVE STORY WANTS A FOREVER AFTER.

Alonzo “Zo” Taylor was the number one worldwide hip-hop artist when a sex scandal destroyed it all. Now five years later, he’s become an angry recluse, preferring solitude and loneliness to the full life he once enjoyed. Until he encounters a teen who reminds him of his past. And a woman that makes him believe in a future.

Sage Parker, a single mother and bartender in Las Vegas is inexplicably drawn to the handsome stranger who frequents her lounge utterly alone. Decidedly celibate and too busy keeping her wayward teenager on the right side of the law to think about love, she resists the gravitational pull of Alonzo. After an unexpected incident forces them into close quarters, Sage and Alonzo decide to take a chance on forever.

Inspired to create and perform again, Alonzo wants the fiercely independent Sage by his side as he faces the family and the world he left behind. As challenges confront them, Alonzo worries Sage may be unable to embrace all it means to be with him. Blindsided by the magnitude of his star power, Sage is thrust into a spotlight and a life she never wanted. And Sage begins to doubt their love story will end in the forever after they both so desire.

“Hot Vegas Nights” Week 3 Releases

Series: Hot Vegas Nights Collaboration
Authors: C.L. Collier, Sabrina Wagner, Amanda Shelley
Genre: Steamy Protector Romance
Collection Hosted by: S.L. Sterling




A trip to Vegas to celebrate my best friend’s wedding?
Yes, please!
I’m ready for warm weather, a little gambling, an epic bachelorette party, and, of course, being a bridesmaid for one of my oldest and best friends.
What I’m not ready for is how hot her younger brother has become. The last time I saw Corey, he was a shy, scrawny kid in high school. Now, he’s neither shy nor scrawny, he’s a successful business owner, and he’s mastered the art of flirting … mainly with me!
Don’t get me wrong––I like having a good time and I’m not opposed to having a weekend fling. But this is my best friend’s brother, not a stranger I’ll never see again. Should I give into temptation, or play it cool while we’re in Vegas?







When your one-night stand is your new boss…


Gia
I wasn’t much of a gambler, but on my first night in Vegas I rolled the dice with a sexy stranger. What did I have to lose? Everyone knows what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I lived out an erotic fantasy most women only dreamed about. It was a souvenir you couldn’t buy in any gift shop. My own dirty little secret.
It was a harmless one-night affair until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome wasn’t so anonymous anymore. He was my new boss. Outside of the bedroom he was a complete jerk and determined to see me fail. I desperately needed this job and so I pretended I didn’t know about the tattoos on his arms or the monster hiding in his pants. Professional was the name of the game, but… the man was hot as hell and dangerous as the devil himself.

♥♣♦♠

Trent
My self-control was marginal at best, and beautiful women were my weakness. So, when my father threatened to fire me if I had one more office fling, I committed to keeping my libido at bay. Vegas was full of lovely ladies who didn’t work at Mystique. I wasn’t about to throw away my destiny of becoming CEO of one of the biggest hotels in Vegas.
My resolve was firm until she walked into my office. I never thought I’d see the fiery redhead again, but there she was looking all tempting and desirable in her pencil skirt and silk blouse. I knew what was hiding under those clothes and it set my blood on fire. The memory of our night together played over and over like a movie I couldn’t hit pause on. There was only one solution… she had to go.







This pitch could make or break my career.

Not only will it set a personal record for the biggest account I’ve ever landed, but it could set my newfound company three years ahead of schedule for expansion.
Thank god I’ve got Nate Bellinger on my team.
Even though I had my reservations hiring the sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on – he more than meets my expectations with his hard work and determination. Together, we’ve formed a solid team and play off each other perfectly.
As we wait for the final verdict, I begrudgingly take Nate up on his offer for a night on the town. After all, this is Vegas and I need to let the chips fall where they may.
Imagine my surprise when I wake up the next morning to find we’ve not only won the campaign, but I’m apparently married to the man I’ve only ever let myself fantasize about.
The kicker of it all – he has no intentions of letting me go.
But what will it mean once we leave Vegas?

To Lie in the Sun: A Kat Kelly Mystery

A Kat Kelly Mystery, Book 3

by Tess Rafferty

~~~~

“We were racking up murders like they were airline miles.”

Kat Kelly and her husband, Mike, are back in Italy, this time on the lush island of Ischia. It’s their first vacation since the COVID pandemic and Kat intends to make up for lost time with endless swims in the turquoise sea, long lunches of the local pastas, and bottomless bottles of crisp Campanian whites. And it can all be had at Torre del Mare, a cliffside hotel run by the glamorous actress turned hotelier, Gabriella Marcello. It’s a much-needed get away…with murder.

The hotel caters to an international clientele ranging from a German cinematographer in town for a film festival; a British couple who jet off to Dubrovnik just to eat dinner; a French mother and daughter who speak little English – and almost never to each other; a Black American photographer in her seventies who is never without a martini and a biting remark; and the wealthy and mercurial Gianni family. They make for an entertaining group of fellow travelers – and an even better pool of suspects. Because soon enough Kat finds one of them dead – and the murderer must be someone staying among them.

Asira is a member of a high-ranking family of Alchemists who exert control over the libraries that store magical texts. She never believed her acceptance into the coveted position was in doubt. Yet, when she becomes the apprentice of a gargoyle shifter Alchemist who insists on keeping his pet bird with him, she has her doubts that he was the right choice for her final class.

Jaydon is from a shifter group known as the Gigun. As an unconventional but powerful teacher of transmutation at the university, he could have his pick of mentees. It isn’t hard to tell that the last thing he wants to do is mentor a student from a powerful family.

Asira finds Jaydon frustrating but too fascinating for her own good. But she needs his knowledge and guidance when she becomes the target of a classmate’s deception. With Jaydon’s assistance, the two of them uncover a conspiracy that threatens the well-regulated order of the Floating World.

As their feelings for each other intensify, Jaydon must make a life-altering decision which will either bind them together… or permanently force them apart.

EXCERPT

His deep voice had a slight rasp, and a warmth that made his words much more interesting than they should’ve been. It was as though he was sharing his personal thoughts with her, not reading from a dry alchemy text.

“Would you like me to show you more?” he asked, as he absently flipped through the pages.

“Yes, please.”

He looked up at her and smiled, pleased at her enthusiasm. “Well, let’s look at this chapter. I think this will explain what elements are important to…”

What was happening to her? She’d never had to struggle to focus on alchemy theories before. And none of her previous instructors had had this type of effect on her. Maybe if she’d had more of a social life over all the years of study, she wouldn’t be feeling this way.

“And this element is essential in…”

There had to be a way to ignore the slight aroma of spice if she worked at it. Anise and Bergamot and was that citrus? Maybe it was from the soap he used. That had to be it.

“Now in this chapter, I want you to pay attention to…”

Each time he glanced at her, she smiled and nodded even though she had no idea what he was talking about. It had to be the spices, that was it. She’d read about how they could be combined to induce pleasurable thoughts. This was right out of her Olfactory Alchemy Formulas textbook.

The magister who had written it had been the topic of endless gossip and speculation for years afterwards. In fact, Varen had made one of the elixirs from the text on a whim. He’d never been as popular with faculty and students as he had been that summer.

“Asira?” Jaydon was staring at her. “Are you all right? I was asking if you understood these symbols.”

“Um, yes, of course,” she said, wondering why she was so warm all of a sudden. “I was distracted.” She rubbed her sweaty palms together, though it didn’t help.

“Oh?” He held her gaze as he continued to point to the page. “Are you sure there’s nothing wrong?”

Was he sweating? No, that light sheen on his skin had to be…she had no idea what it had to be. Under the desk, their knees were touching and for some reason she was reluctant to move away.

ATFT banner

~~~~

One woman must learn to love again with the help of her supper club friends and the man next door in this delightful enemies-to-lovers small-town romance.

The best meals. The perfect company. And just enough sparks to make it complicated . . .

Serenity Wheeler’s Supper Club is all about getting together with great friends, incredible food, and a whole lot of dishing—not for hooking up. Still, Serenity knows inviting her friend’s brother to one of her dinners is just good manners, but the ultra-fine, hazel-eyed Gabriel Cunningham has a gift for saying the wrong thing at the really wrong time. Especially when it comes to her cooking.

Gabriel isn’t quite sure how they got off on the wrong foot, but something about Serenity makes him nervous. Maybe it’s because he’s new to the small-town vibe. Maybe it’s because the woman is so gorgeous that he can’t think straight. Or maybe it’s because there’s an attraction between them he can’t seem to shake.

Though refreshments and camaraderie may be the supper club’s mantra, Serenity and Gabriel know there’s more between them than just sharing delicious meals. But she can’t let herself fall for Gabriel. Because while cooking with love is one thing, trusting it is quite another…
