Cowboy Games by Audrey Randall

Cowboy Games is a STANDALONE HEA! Will Lana save a joystick and ride a cowboy? Let the first chapter lasso you in!

Lana

“Frack! This can’t be right!” Lana tapped on the GPS screen on her fun little rental car. Pulling to the side of the deserted Montana road, Lana couldn’t help but take a look at the natural beauty outside. It would have seemed more awe-inspiring if she hadn’t felt so lost. A hundred miles from the nearest hint of civilization recognized by Google Maps was not the place to be lost. Lana’s over active mind began to imagine the animals waiting to eat her, out in the forest or other worse fates that she had seen on the news back home in Berkeley. Pulling out her phone, she noticed that she had no bars.

“Frackity frack frack frack! For the love of Zelda!” Opening the car door, she stepped out to see whether she could get any bars at all. A part of her knew that it wouldn’t make any difference, but it didn’t stop her from trying. No more bars appeared, which led Lana to make the conclusion that she would have to trust the GPS. It was that or turn back. And since she knew there was nothing but a run-down gas station fifty miles behind her, she figured that her bladder would rather she try to move forward.

She knew that she had been taking a risk traveling out here to meet her longtime online friend, Solar Cowboy. Even now, she couldn’t believe that she had trekked out to the middle of nowhere to meet this person. Who did that? She berated herself for the tenth time in the last hour.

Lana had met a lot of people through The Celestial Prophesy, but few she had connected with like Solar Cowboy. Not in the romantic sense, but as a kindred friend. She had never met him before, but, but it really didn’t matter. When she had told him of her and her best friend/ teammate, Steph’s plan to make a camp for underprivileged girls to learn coding and experience life, he had suggested that she consider his Montana ranch. He had played up how the girls could learn to ride horses, lasso, and code all in one week. When Lana had mentioned it to Steph, she had loved the idea. So, here she was in the middle of nowhere to scope out this ranch.

“Great idea, Lana. World-class idea to come out to the middle of nowhere to meet a guy you really don’t know. What if he’s an ax murderer?” Looking over her shoulder at the road traveled, her bladder insisted that she move forward toward hopefully, a bathroom. If she didn’t find civilization soon, she’d be squatting for sure.

Getting back in the car, she huffed as she resigned herself to trusting the car GPS that she hoped had been upgraded in the last year. “Should have downloaded the directions on your phone before you left, dummy!” She pounded the steering wheel with her palm before she pulled the mustang back onto the desolate highway.

Jesse

“What the fuck are you doing, Cody?” Jesse couldn’t help but laugh as he watched his seventeen-year-old brother race around the house throwing things this way and that. “Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the cleaning, but why now? What’s your rush?”

“She’s coming!” Cody let out almost a boyish squeal as he loaded up his arms with clothes and other random junk that had been lying around.

Jesse followed his brother’s mad dash into their bachelor-pad like kitchen. Jesse rarely understood his younger brother. Cody had always been geeky. Preferring to spend time on his computer rather than riding the range with Jesse. Often Jesse felt bad for Cody. He had been born in the wrong place. He would have been much better suited in the Silicon Valley rather than Somewhere Valley, Montana. After the sudden death of their parents when Cody was fourteen, Jesse had hoped that he could find a way to bridge their gap of personalities, but no such luck.

“Fuck! She’s almost here and it looks like this?” Cody whined.

If you like smokin’ hot cowboys, then this one is for you! All the sexy cowboy without the cow smell! For 18+.

Author Bio:
I'm just a girl who loves romance with heat in my books. From a young age, I used to sneak romance novels to read in the middle of the night. The more smut the better! When I'm not picturing men in kilts, or preferably nothing at all, I like to read, watch movies, and eat as much ice cream as possible!

Feel free to contact me! I love to hear from my readers! 🙂

What to Kill For by Hitomi Farrell

A single woman whose biological clock is ticking hunts for a husband in the “Land of Mr. Wrongs” also known as Los Angeles. “Fortunately,” she gets kidnapped by a Mexican mobster.

*****
Shannon is just another single woman in Los Angeles who is desperate to find “The One.” She is a pretty, decently-educated Episcopalian princess, and—it appears—there is absolutely nothing wrong with her. What appears to be wrong is that her Prince Charming is ten years overdue, and more than fashionably late in making his appearance.

Meanwhile, Shannon gets kidnapped by a Mexican mobster from one of the most notorious crime syndicates in Mexico. It is payback for her boss’s corruption and wrongdoing in secret, criminal transactions. Shannon’s hope for her release is slim since she knows her boss couldn’t care less about her life. She must escape on her own and return to her everyday agenda of searching for her future husband. She has to hurry, too, because she’s running out of time!

What will happen to Shannon’s life now?

Edge of Glory by Magan Vernon

“Welcome to Conti’s. I’m Lia and I’ll nguhhhhhhhhhhhhh.”

I froze. Directly facing me was Olympic swimmer, Jay Morningstar…and I just made an idiot of myself.

The rest of the table looked up to see me standing there with my mouth practically gaping. His coach, who I recognized from TV interviews, and even two other swimmers from the Olympic team. They didn’t say anything, they didn’t even blink.

“Uh…I mean…”

I couldn’t even put together my words and Jay Morningstar was just staring at me with that Wheaties box smile and those icy blue eyes.

What was I supposed to say? Sorry I just made a weird noise, it’s just that I have a poster of you on my wall where you are wearing nothing more than your gold medals, a smile, and a pair of man panties?

Targeted Audience: young adults 21-35

Husband Sit (Husband Series Book 1) by Louise Cusack

Jill is desperate for money to save her kid sister from a Bangkok jail so she starts Husband Sitting: being paid by rich wives to keep an eye on their cheating husbands. It’s weird, but do-able until Finn comes along, jealous and determined to win Jill for himself. Can her girlfriends help her out of this mess?

Targeted Audience: Romance Readers

Author Bio:
Louise Cusack lives in Australia, in a tiny fishing village on the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef where kangaroos are regular visitors in her yard. She's a long-time vegetarian and caffeine addict who spends her spare time on Facebook and Netflix. Louise has been published by Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins and Pan Macmillan.

Her novels are about curious women who get themselves into unlikely situations – whether that's an everyday woman from our world falling through a portal into a sepia kingdom, an amorous mermaid who gets herself stranded on dry land, or more recently, a perfectly ordinary house-sitter who finds herself husband sitting instead!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was house-sitting and a client told me about her friend Catherine, whose husband had cheated while Catherine went on holiday. Even worse, when she came home, the 'other woman' was installed as the new lady of the house and he wanted a divorce. That would upset Catherine's life, her status and her future.

My client laughingly said, "If Catherine had had a husband sitter, that might never have happened!" and while we laughed about the idea of a house sitter that 'sat' husbands, I couldn't help thinking "There's a book in this…"

I was right!
