Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Brazen and the Beast by Sarah MacLean [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Chapter One September 1837 Mayfair In twenty-eight years and three hundred sixty-four days, Lady Henrietta Sedley liked to think that she’d learned a few things. She’d learned, for example, that if a lady could not get away with wearing trousers (an unfortunate reality for the daughter of an earl, even one who had begun life without title or fortune), then she should absolutely ensure that her skirts included pockets. A woman never knew when she might require a bit of rope, or a knife to cut it, after all. She’d also learned that any decent escape from her Mayfair home […]

Don’t want to read the excerpt?  Click to jump to the Review? “This the one, Ms. Priss?” I turned in a circle, hating how restrictive and stiff the refined suit felt. There would be no staying on the horse for eight seconds in something like this. I doubted I could even bend over and pull my boots on in this getup. I failed to see how being dressed like I was going to […]

Respect by Jay Crownover [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Respect by Jay Crownover [Excerpt + Giveaway]

~Karsen~ I was stuck to the spot, trapped by all the jagged, sharp pieces of my broken fantasies. I wanted to bolt, to run as far away as I could, but I couldn’t move. I felt like the shards would rip me to shreds any direction I turned. Even when the naked woman continued making out with the man of my dreams right in front of me, I was stuck in the same spot. The noises they were making were loud and graphic and all-encompassing. I could hear them echoing in the empty places in my chest where my heart […]

Fight for You by Nina Crespo [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Fight for You by Nina Crespo [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Delanie pulled the sheet over her head as she lay in bed. She’d take anything to get rid of Aiden—a surprise zit on her nose, the tequila hangover of death, eighteen bad hair days—it would all be worth it just to get some peace. The medicine the doctor had prescribed made her sleepy, but every time she woke up, Aiden was there, giving her water, handing her more pills, or hovering just outside the bedroom, waiting for her to come out of the bathroom and get back into bed. But even in a drugged haze, she couldn’t ignore the obvious […]

The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen [New Release + Excerpt]

The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen [New Release + Excerpt]

After the last course—chocolate mousse—the three of us go tripping back across the cold lawn in the dark, Aurora in the lead. I’m the tiniest bit tipsy and wearing heels. So naturally, I stumble on a frozen clod of snow and nearly fall. But Jake catches my hand to steady me. “Thanks,” I breathe. Curiously, his warm fingers remain curled around mine until we reached the door of Habernacker. I try not to feel ridiculously excited about it. He lets go when we all reach the third floor. When Aurora opens the door, he follows us inside until we all […]

Jock Row by Sara Ney [Excerpt]

Jock Row by Sara Ney [Excerpt]

Jesus Christ, she has a dimple in her damn cheek. I’m a sucker for those. She shoots me a tentative smile, ass parked on the stoop, back propped against the wooden siding of the house. It’s obvious that she’s blushing by the way she ducks her head, glancing down at the floor, the soft glow from the two busted lamps illuminate the crown of her head. The porch lights are busted and rusty, needing their bulbs changed, one flickering—the other just about to burn out. It makes the entire place look like a goddamn Halloween fun-house, casting a weird glow […]
