SOR - On The Rocks by Elizabeth Morgan


 
 
 
The Edge Series

 

On the Rocks is the hottest club on South Padre Island, and Meghan’s new workplace.


If the warped mermaid uniform isn’t enough, the fact that she can’t stop thinking about the club’s singer, Zenzie, is. Everything about the female gets Meghan hot, but when she finally gets her shot with the temptress, it turns out Zenzie isn’t as perfect, or as human, as Meghan thought. 

 
 

Excerpt:

 

Her warm breath skated down my neck causing a shiver to curl around my spine. She straightened then slid her hands through my hair. My eyelids fluttered at the feel of her fingertips stroking over my temples and along my hairline.


“I saw you watching us.”


I stared at her. “Excuse me?”


“Do you like watching?” She retrieved a few items from the vanity table, twisted two sections of my hair, and pushed the hair clips into place. “It’s all right. You can tell me, Meghan.”


My body tightened at the husky way she said my name. The knot between my legs pulsed under her piercing stare. I had no idea how, or even why she managed to get under my skin, but God, I wanted her.

“I’m not a pervert or anything.”


“I know you’re not.” She slid a chain of small red flowers into the black mass of my hair.


“I just heard a noise. I guess my curiosity got the best of me.” I shifted on my seat. “I’m sorry—”


“Don’t be. I liked you watching.”


My nails dug into my knees as her hands moved down my throat. Her skin like satin—her touch, soft. She ran her fingertips over the top of my breasts.


“I would have asked you to join us, if you hadn’t run.” Her gaze caught mine again while she slid her hand inside my skin-tone bra. “Will you run now, or will you do what we both know you want to do?”

Slowly over the following three years, she was writing more and more, channeling her imagination into more detailed manuscripts...

LBAS - Stolen Valentine Kiss by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku #Giveaway


Stolen Valentine Kiss by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
Publication Date: Feb 1st 2014
ISBN/EAN 13: 1495237931/9781495237935 (Paperback)
Genre / Categories: Fiction/Romance/Contemporary/Interracial/Multicultural



One broken heart. Two grieving minds.

To Lorna Ibe, Departmental Manager with one of London's multi-channel retailers, Valentine's Day lost its romantic flavour years ago. An unplanned holiday to New Jersey is her perfect getaway from the stress and emotional turmoil locked in her heart, just what she needs to take her mind off her troubles. That's until she runs into Logan.

Magazine publisher, Logan Blake has had his fair share of stress in the past few years. When his sister asks him to drop off old clothes to charity, he has a minor accident in front of the charity shop where Lorna volunteers. When he sets eyes on her bare midriff as she wipes the display window, he clears his busy schedule to volunteer his time. Two burdened hearts afraid to get entwined.

One Stolen Valentine Kiss. Will Valentine season bring them romance or will their fears keep them apart?


The brush flew out of her unsteady hands for the third time in a row.
Swallowing hard, she eyeballed her reflection in the silver scalloped round dressing table mirror. Bending over, she snatched the brush from the carpet.

''Stay still,'' she spat through gritted teeth. Why is she doing everything to please her Aunt? You know the answer to that, her conscience whispered.
In truth, she enjoyed her five hours treatment at the beauty spa today. She flicked her wrist. Five minutes more. Her pulsed raced and her teeth chattered.
Dragging in air, she swept a handful of black curls to the right side of her face.

The door bell clanged. She heard the door open. Stumbling to her feet, she rushed forward and placed her ears behind the door, straining to listen to his conversation with her Aunt. Her knees juddered. ''Only because I haven't been out on a date for so long,'' she muttered.
The knock on her door sent her stumbling backwards, landing slapdash on the bed. Her Aunt walked in, a bemused smile on her face.
''So...so...so, Logan is even more manly...more striking than you let on. Wow! You look gorgeous in that red dress.'' Breathing easier, she stood up.
''Do you think this dress flatters me?''
Logan Blake


♡♡

Hands behind her back, she walked in to the room, her eyes widening broadly.
In a black suit, black shirt without tie and black shoes, Logan looked like a movie star. As she walked closer, his fragrance left her dazed. Out is his roguish look. His well styled hair, facial beard and moustache gave him a wicked edge. She couldn't stop staring open mouthed.

Her heart pounded in her ears and her throat ran out of saliva. His now deepening blue eyes slowly raked her from her upturned bouncy hair with a few tendrils sashaying round her neck to her red, A-line halter, Rhinestone, sleeveless, mini chiffon cocktail dress. Her silver sandal dolled up feet swayed precariously as both hands clutched her purse in steel like grip behind her back.

Clearing his throat, Logan pulled the lapels of his jacket. Is he nervous too? She held her breath. ''I'm speechless, Lorna.'' He blinked rapidly. Her chest soared, her eyes held his for a long moment. ''You're devastatingly beautiful! That red dress is superbly hot. You're a breath of fresh air in Jersey City,” his voice caught. Her heart danced and wheeled. Taking in deep breaths, she swallowed. ''Thank you, Logan. Glad you like the look. I must say you look gorgeous in black.'' Talk less, listen more. Her aunt's word floated in her ears.

Rubbing his palms together, Logan's eyes returned to her long legs. She walked towards him, careful not to topple over in her four inch pencil heel. Of course, she can walk in the accessorized high shoes. It is his gaze...which sends her feet in different directions, lighting up the ashes in her heart.



I am Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku, a fun loving mother of two, married to my very own gorgeous alpha male. I recently 'retired' from an eighteen stint working as a Quality Assurance Manager. Writing romance novels is an exciting adventure.

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels. There are six contemporary romance novels in the kitty, varying from sweet & sensual to spicy hot & steamy - LOITERING SHADOWS, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, THE GARDNER'S ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN and HUSBAND to RENT. STOLEN VALENTINE KISS is my first series and my first Novella.

On my writing desk at the moment, my first historical romance, a trilogy is taking shape. A daunting challenge I must confess, but I love the characters and their journey so far. In my leisure time, I go swimming, read romance novels, go to Cinema, and watch TV.

SOR - The Convict & the Cattleman by Allison Merritt


The Convict & the Cattleman

 


 

His love is the key to her release.

 

Sentenced to seven years of servitude in the penal colony of New South Wales, Bridgit Madden is thrust into a world unlike anything she's known, dangers she never imagined and enemies with their own interests at heart. Certain that the conviction has ruined her chances of ever having a real family, she is fearful of her future.

 

Despite his reluctance to take in a convict, Jonah Andrus, a grazier and pioneer cattleman, needs a servant to care for his orphaned niece. When presented with Bridgit, who is far too beautiful and distracting, he initially tries to refuse. However, with a busy cattle station to oversee, he needs help right away.

 

Upon her first meeting with Jonah's niece, Bridgit immediately falls in love with the girl and becomes entwined the mystery surrounding her birth. As she gets to know her employer better, Bridgit makes it her mission to remind him that family is priceless. When it seems as though she might have found the place she truly belongs, their love is threatened by lies and deceit, and both of them might lose everything they hold dear for a second time.

 

 

Excerpt:

 

“There, there. Bridgit will be along any second. She knows how to take care of  you. Uncle Jonah will drop you. You’re too small.”

 

Surprised by his own admission, he stared helplessly at Olivia. When was the last time he’d paid her any attention? She’d grown and he hadn’t noticed. Babies did; he knew well enough from watching his calves during the summer. The baby he remembered was tiny, wrinkled and didn’t look like anyone. Charlotte, exhausted, but elated, had smiled proudly.

 

“Isn’t she beautiful, Jonah?”

 

Recalling her voice made his heart pound. The silly girl didn’t have a sense of shame. She’d been nervous when she admitted her tryst and the subsequent pregnancy, but she had defended her child. Not unlike one of his cows. They protected their young fiercely.

 

He hadn’t found the words to answer her question. All he saw was Rob Langnecker’s face. The desire to kill him had blotted out everything else. Langnecker had ruined his sister, left her alone with a bastard child and went off chasing other skirts. She’d died in the room where Bridgit slept, believing he’d come back for them.

 

If I ever catch him.

 

Jonah ran his hand down his face.

“Is something wrong?”

 

Bridgit’s warm hand closed around his. Pity shined in her eyes.

 

“The chores are waiting.” Clammy sweat dampened his shirt.

 

She tugged his hand. “You need to stay. You’ll regret it if you don’t. Go sit down.”

 

He didn’t understand why he obeyed, but he sat in the rocking chair by the window. His father had crafted it for his mother years before Jonah was born.

 

Bridgit lifted Olivia, nestling her into his arms. The cries eased to a whimper.

 

“Hold your arms like this. You’ve got to support her head.”

 

“I know.” Charlotte had insisted he hold Olivia hours after her birth. He remembered it clear as day. Accepting the chubby baby, he was surprised at her weight.

 

She’d been so small. “She’s healthy.”

 

It was more a question than a statement. Olivia gazed at him, eyes wide. Her fingers toyed with one of his buttons.

 

“Aye. Growing like a weed. She’s learning to roll over.” At his confused look, she explained, “That’s good. She’ll be crawling before long. She talks to me and follow things with her eyes. Everything she’s supposed to do.”

 

“Good. Charlotte would be glad.” His voice sounded choked and he cleared his throat, hoping Bridgit hadn’t noticed.

 

She lifted the bottle. “Here. Feed her. Tip it up, so the air gets in the bottle.”

 

He let her show him what to do, surprised again when Olivia grasped the bottle with her tiny hands. Her features were clearer now. Charlotte’s nose and chin. Those couldn’t be his ears, could they? Dark blue eyes stared up at him, then drifted shut as she suckled greedily. Her eyes were the only resemblance he could find to her father.

 

Bridgit kneeled beside the rocking chair and swept dark locks from the baby’s face. Her hand settled on his knee. “There. She’s happy now.” A wistful smile played across her face.

 

A jolt ran through him. With Olivia snuggled against his chest and Bridgit beside him, the moment belonged to a family man.
