No Honor Between Brothers by Deborah Tadema

Everyone has at least one weakness. Mitch Wilder’s is women. He has always been fussed over, coddled and protected by them. As a teenager he was the star football quarterback, always surrounded by girls, as he used his good looks and popularity to his advantage. By thirty-nine years of age, he hasn’t slowed down. Mitch still sneaks from bedroom to bedroom.

When his father dies in 1967 Mitch’s world starts to fray at the seams. His father’s will states that Mitch has inherited the shipping company, which Mitch has been running for eight years, ever since his father retired. But up until then the company had remained in his father’s name. While the inheritance isn’t a surprise, the stipulation that Mitch must hire his stepbrother, Tom Fleming, is. On top of this, Tom will own half the company within five years. If this doesn’t happen the company will be sold and the proceeds will go to charity. Mitch sees no choice but to hire his brother.

Other than the fact that Mitch hates Tom, he has also discovered that Tom had an affair with the woman Mitch loves, Claire Lester. He comes up with a plan: to convince Claire to marry him and keep her away from Tom.

A Date with Fate by Tracy Ellen

Book Description
Welcome to the world of Anabel Axelrod!

Hold on to your seat for the beginning of a fun ride! This is not your traditional romance wrapped up in a nice box and tied with a HEA pretty bow. A Date with Fate is the debut novel by Tracy Ellen, and the first volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series. Experience action, sex, wit, romance, mystery, mayhem, friends, family, flashbacks, fantasies, much laughter, and an “OMG!” cliffhanger–all in one roller-coaster ride of a wild weekend!

Smart and sexy bookstore owner Anabel Axelrod is happily satisfied with the routine of her life. She enjoys her work, the occasional company of good friends and family, and casual dates with men that are willing to follow her ironclad rules on dating.

Not too tall, deliciously dark, and definitely not handsome, the mysterious Luke Drake is a new man in town. When they meet, Anabel realizes Luke is the same man that she saw briefly in her bookstore months ago. They had never actually spoken, but sparks flew and worlds collided when their eyes clashed across the room that day.

It soon becomes apparent Luke has set his sights on Anabel, but he is no follower of rules and control is his middle name. Falling crazy in lust and sharing her darkest desires with an experienced man like Luke was definitely not in Anabel’s plans. She loves being single and will allow no man to control her, but Luke has persuasive ideas of his own.

But Anabel’s intense desire for Luke Drake is not her only concern. The slutty wife of a friend has gone missing, an employee at her store is attacked by an abusive ex, and the man who broke her heart years ago returns to town. Anabel’s orderly life dissolves into chaos. In A Date with Fate, the question remains–will the sassy, blonde bookseller follow her own rules to stay single, or will she understand that life is never simple and a certain mesmerizing complication may be worth the risk, even if it kills her?

The next two books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series, Courted by Karma and In Love by Design, are available for purchase at all major booksellers. Adieu to Destiny is available for preorder and will be released in November 2014.

*This series is meant for the entertainment of an adult, mature audience. Please do not buy/read my books if scenes containing strong sexual situations, moderate violence, and explicit language offend you.

The Horny Heart? by Paula Jacobsson

hony-heart-Jlook-inside-v2TopRight10_SH20Show me ONE person who doesn’t want to have an amazing and breathtaking sex life! Not that everybody considers sex to be the most important factor in life, but when we do engage in sexual activities we want to experience the stuff that rocks our world and leaves us lying in bed spent and happy with a silly grin on our faces. I know I do. But, how do we go about it? Well, as far as I have understood the majority go out to buy some new spicy underwear, a sex toy or two, watch porn together or something to that effect. In many cases that might help to put some zing back into the relationship for a short while, but the effect doesn’t last and instead of rushing back to the store for some more supplies they need to turn back inwards, towards their relationship. The media feeds us with a zillion different outfits, looks, toys and porn-inspired scenarios to make us believe that’s what’s missing. They couldn’t be more wrong because the most important factor to a fulfilling and awe-inspiring sex life is….wait for it: INTIMACY. Read that again. Intimacy. Some say you can read this word as: In-to-me-see. And that’s just it. When you relate to someone intimately, you know them deep down, you can read their eyes and gestures for an update on the mood right now, you know their dreams, innermost needs and wishes, there is absolutely no end to the possibilities and dimensions that you can experience together. This doesn’t mean that every sexual encounter need be an earth moving experience; sometimes it’s ok with the wham-bam-variety. Why doesn’t intimacy sell? Well, it takes time. There is no quick-fix and we live in an age where instant gratification is key. On the other hand many also recognize that these quick-fixes leave us with a feeling of emptiness. Porn shows us a warped version of “reality” by presenting always-ready-to-go-solutions where all the participants at all times are a hundred percent focused on sex and nothing else. Newflash! Nobody in the real world lives or functions like that. If they’re emotionally healthy that is. If you want to settle for porn, that’s your choice, but be aware that you are settling for something that can never be anything but a cheap and sadly lacking copy of the real thing. You have this extraordinary possibility of really living, right here, right now, don’t sell yourself short. So, instead of spending precious time on running around trying to find the aphrodisiac that is missing in a sex shop or on the internet, spend time together with your partner, as well as with yourself, make an effort to get to know each other better, listen attentively, tell each other about vulnerabilities, needs, sorrows, joys and dreams. In fact use every waking moment together to find out something more about your partner, look at it as an adventure, a treasure to be excavated, lovingly. The book “The Horny Heart?” is an outspoken, inspirational, easy-going but still serious reminder that we need to make conscious choices in order to have the fantastic and enriching experiences we all dream of.

Targeted Audience: From 21 and upwards

SUNRISE FROM AN ICY HEART: A MEMOIR by Claudette Alexander

SFAIH-2-WEB-smallFour years of daily passionate loving, near the ocean, in the car, during moonlight days and sunset horizons, coupled with glasses of rum punch, came to a halt when thick lipped, Linus Hyacinth, emigrated from St. Lucia to Canada in October 1972 in search of greener pastures.

In the midst of trying to adjust to the extreme changes in climate, he searches for work as an architectural draftsman. Miserable and missing his lover, he worries about her loyalty amidst a sea of man-peckers. He writes her weekly professing his love and his desire for her to join him.

Nine months later, June 1973, the naive Claudette Alexander, sets off on her journey in pursuit of love and prosperity. In Canada, love takes on a different direction as she tries to adjust to Linus’ broken promises, culture shock, racism and single parenting.

As she embarks on the sea of love, she encounters stormy weather and her heart gets as frigid as the North American winters. It will take a special man to crack through her icy heart.

After four failed relationships, she meets Malcolm James. He is quiet, patient and soft spoken and has loved her when he first met her as a teenager. He has yearned and longed for her. Crossed the ocean, and had his fair share of failed relationships.

But Malcolm needs to break down these walls and bore through her icy heart to rescue her from herself and get to the sunrise as she battles kidney failure.

Targeted Audience: Ages 21 – 70

Author Bio:
Claudette Alexander is obsessed with love and romance. As a teenager growing up in St.Lucia she was fascinated with the Mills and Boon series and always envisioned some Prince coming down some mountain to rescue her heart.
Her other passion is fighting for the rights of the underdog. She did a good bit of fighting as a union president. These days she is fighting to empower people with knowledge on how to live happily with chronic conditions.
Her first novel SUNRISE FROM AN ICY HEART: A MEMOIR is about her journey to find the right man to love her and the joys and headaches of raising loving sons.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always been an avid reader of books and had the desire to write children’s books. I also wanted to write about the love I shared with the fathers of my son so they could know the love that preceded their existence.

Raising loving sons is such an uphill battle with tears and joys and I wanted to motivate single parents to smash through the fence of fear and fly.

As someone on dialysis for ten years I also wanted to offer hope to people living with a chronic condition and inspire them to live happily while managing the card they have been dealt with.

Pleasure-High-ResolutionHe’s trying to kill me.
He’s going to kill me.
And there’s nothing I can do to stop him.

On the day Damon is served with divorce papers by Sasha’s hunky, ginger-haired lawyer Gideon O’Shea, Sasha knows better than to let Damon inside her house, but he sounds so desperate and broken, sobbing outside her door like a neglected child. In a moment of forgiveness, she unbolts the door, letting him in.

Author Bio:
Most people think I’m an introvert, the quiet girl, the one lurking in the corner of a high-end coffee shop, sipping my chai tea, glancing at them, glancing at you. I certainly look the part. To see me, you’d think I belonged in the forest, running free with a group of sweet-faced fairies, instead of sitting in front of my laptop, feverishly penning my next racy scene.

Maybe I am introverted. Or maybe, just maybe, I’m a proper girl sometimes, and an entirely different girl other times. Read my books. Tell me what you think.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Each part in my five-part series has a message about believing in yourself, standing up for what you believe in, etc. I wanted to write stories about empowering women.
