Blurb


Six years
ago, Harold Dalton framed me for theft and sent me to jail to steal my diamond
discovery. He gave his daughter to Jack Clarke in exchange for the excavation
rights. Today, I’m free, and I’m coming for him with a vengeance. Six years of
cruelty make beasts out of men. I’m going to take back what he stole from me,
and more. I’m not interested in his properties or shares. I don’t want his
small change. I want his biggest asset. Beautiful, mentally unstable, Angelina
Dalton-Clarke.

Worth
billions, she’s the wealthiest widow in the country, and also the craziest. Her
self-harming tendencies had Jack declare her incompetent before he put a gun to
his head and blew out his brains. Lina isn’t allowed to touch a cent of her
riches. Her father manages her finances. He has all the signing power. As her
husband, that chore will fall to me. But if she thinks I only want her for her
money, she’s sadly mistaken.

she’s worked so hard to separate inevitably collide.

Excerpt

Rest, Liam told me.
He’s right
about a lot of things. Maybe he’s right about this. I climb onto the cool pink
sheets, hoping that a nap will suddenly make me content with this quiet little
life.
Even though
I know it won’t.
Besides,
I’m too wired to actually sleep. The white lace coverlet is both delicate and
comfy. It’s actually what I would have picked out for myself, except I didn’t
pick it out. I’ve been incapable of picking anything, of choosing anything, of
deciding anything as part of some deep-seated fear that I’ll be abandoned.
The
coverlet, like everything else in my life, simply appeared.
And the
person responsible for its appearance? Liam North.
I climb
under the blanket and stare at the ceiling. My body feels overly warm, but it
still feels good to be tucked into the blankets. The blankets he picked
out for me.
It’s really
so wrong to think of him in a sexual way. He’s my guardian, literally. Legally.
And he has never done anything to make me think he sees me in a sexual
way.
This is it.
This is the answer.
I don’t
need to go skinny dipping in the lake down the hill. Thinking about Liam North
in a sexual way is my fast car. My parachute out of a plane.
My eyes
squeeze shut.
That’s all
it takes to see Liam’s stern expression, those fathomless green eyes and the
glint of dark blond whiskers that are always there by late afternoon. And then
there’s the way he touched me. My forehead, sure, but it’s more than he’s done
before. That broad palm on my sensitive skin.
My thighs
press together. They want something between them, and I give them a pillow.
Even the way I masturbate is small and timid, never making a sound, barely
moving at all, but I can’t change it now. I can’t moan or throw back my head
even for the sake of rebellion.
But I can
push my hips against the pillow, rocking my whole body as I imagine Liam doing
more than touching my forehead. He would trail his hand down my cheek, my neck,
my shoulder.
Repressed.
I’m so repressed it’s hard to imagine more than that.
I make
myself do it, make myself trail my hand down between my breasts, where it’s
warm and velvety soft, where I imagine Liam would know exactly how to touch me.
You’re
so beautiful,
he
would say. Your breasts are perfect.
Because
Imaginary Liam wouldn’t care about big breasts. He would like them small and
soft with pale nipples. That would be the absolute perfect pair of breasts for
him.
And he
would probably do something obscene and rude. Like lick them.
My hips
press against the pillow, almost pushing it down to the mattress, rocking and rocking.
There’s not anything sexy or graceful about what I’m doing. It’s pure instinct.
Pure need.
The
beginning of a climax wraps itself around me. Claws sink into my skin. There’s
almost certain death, and I’m fighting, fighting, fighting for it with the
pillow clenched hard.
“Oh fuck.”
The words
come soft enough someone else might not hear them. They’re more exhalation of
breath, the consonants a faint break in the sound. I have excellent hearing.
Ridiculous, crazy good hearing that had me tuning instruments before I could
ride a bike.
My eyes
snap open, and there’s Liam, standing there, frozen. Those green eyes locked on
mine. His body clenched tight only three feet away from me. He doesn’t come
closer, but he doesn’t leave.
Orgasm
breaks me apart, and I cry out in surprise and denial and relief. “Liam.
It goes on
and on, the terrible pleasure of it. The wrenching embarrassment of coming
while looking into the eyes of the man who raised me for the past six years.

Title: A Model Fiancé
Author: Nikky Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creation

 Release Date: March 14, 2019





Blurb


There are a million reasons why I shouldn’t ask Audrey to pretend to be
my fiancée. For a start:

1.    She’s my best friend’s sexy little sister.
2.    She’ll have to travel around the world with me.
3.    The paparazzi will eat her alive.
4.    So will I. 

But I also have a million followers on social media who think we’re
already engaged, and there are millions of dollars at stake. 

So what have I got to lose?





I sighed
heavily as I freed my toes from the death trap heels. “Men have it so easy. You
don’t have to put up with this kind of torture. No hair, no make-up to do.”
Dev
shrugged. “What can I say? I roll out of bed looking like this.”
My mouth
went dry as I pictured him rolling out of bed. In my imagination, he was
wearing a lot less than he was now.
By the time
we reached the door to my room, I realized I was running out of time to
proposition him. I dropped my shoes to rummage through my purse for the key
card. Didn’t I just have it, to show the
guard at the elevator bank? Yeesh.
Dev waited
patiently beside me. He even bent down to pick up my shoes for me. The movement
of his head near my waist made me pause. Gah.
Trying to ignore the tingling feeling in my stomach, I kept searching. Blindly
I felt a few things, but funnily enough I couldn’t find my card—or my courage.
Oh wait, there it was. It was in the side
pocket, along with a ton of sexual tension.
I cleared
my throat and tried to sound casual. “Uh, do you want to come in? We could
catch up… or something?”
“Audrey.”
Something
in his voice made me look up from the depths of my bag. His eyes were like
obsidian in the light lining the never-ending corridor. When he stepped closer,
my back went up against my door.
“Forget I
asked,” I murmured.
He ran his
thumb over my jaw, and I reflexively tilted my head up to him. He said my name
again, his voice even rougher and deeper than before. My bare toes curled
against the carpet.
Still
buried in my bag, my hand closed around my key. I was running out of time.
Without really thinking about it, I popped up on my tiptoes and pressed a kiss
to the beard-roughened space between the corner of his mouth and his jaw.
“Thanks for
the escort.”
Somehow he
moved even closer, because as I went back down on my heels, I found myself flat
against the door and his body pressed against mine. It was hot and hard and… oh!
“Audrey?”
“Hmmm?” Was
this like Beetlejuice? If he said my
name three times in a row, would I come?
I looked up
to see him lick his lips. He didn’t need his body to pin me to the door—his
gaze did the job well enough.
“Give me
your damn key,” he growled.

Title: Scoring the Keeper's Sister

Series: Mr. Match #1
Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Sexy Sport Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 14, 2019





Blurb


ERICA:  

Signing up for a matchmaking
service was not my idea. But when Andrew the hand model dumped me, my brother
suggested I try Mr. Match. And I figured it couldn’t hurt–as it was, I’d never
get away from meathead moron soccer players (since my brother plays keeper for
the South Bay Sharks and I manage PR for the team.) 

But Mr. Match is a
moron too because he matched me with a guy I see at work every day. A guy who
has a different girl on his arm at every turn. And a soccer player. Fernando
Fuerte, the “Fuerte Fire,” is one guy I can assure you is NOT my match. 

FERNANDO:

Getting girls is
not a problem. Getting girls who care about something besides my status as the
South Bay Sharks star striker, my salary, and my social status? Yeah. That’s
the problem. So when my buddy Max tells me he’s actually Mr. Match–the secret
proprietor of San Diego’s hottest matchmaking app, I let him convince me to try
it. 

And Erica Johnson
is not actually a bad match–only she doesn’t seem to agree. And then there’s
the small matter of her being in the middle of trying to save the team (and me)
when the owner’s ex brings to light some, ahem, unsavory accusations about me…
and then there’s her enormous and disapproving twin brother…and there’s
something about cheese, too. 

But if I have my
way? Erica will definitely be my match.
