Desire for Touch by Adira August

Has it ever been like this for you? Hands and heat and need become the world? … Have you ever been loved like this?

Avienne Rivers hadn’t. The investigative reporter focused on work, family and friends. If she needed a man, well, that was easy enough. There were always willing men. For a night or a week.

Now, Avia was on her way to interview a sex-toy manufacturer. What was she supposed to write about? The benefits of a pink sparkle dildo?

But Benedict Hart turned out to be a charming, funny, accomplished man who made Avia warm in a cool mountain breeze with a dimpled smile, a direct gaze and an aura of passion for life. And, he made clear, for her.

But this Alpha female wasn’t about to turn into a compliant mass of quivering nerve-endings at the crook of an elegant finger. Still. That finger was attached to a strong, warm hand and a beautiful man. And there was definite quiverage going on in certain parts of her body.

Besides, you just flashed on him throwing you down here in broad daylight on his terrace. He seems like a good guy and he wants to give you great sex. It’s not Of Human Bondage, it’s just experimenting with something different. And it’ll provide depth to the story.

And then Ben touched her. And she was lost.

Author Bio:
ROMANCE WITHOUT SEX IS LIKE DISNEYLAND WITHOUT RIDES.

I don't write smut, I write Romance. I write about people passionate for life, for work, for each other. And that makes the sex electric and intimate, classic erotica. Unashamed and unapologetic.

I've chased down bad guys, climbed mountains, searched for dinosaurs and had rather a large number of lovers, though I'm not giving a specific number.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My whole foray into erotic Romance came about when I discovered that 97 out of every 100 women didn’t know what their own clitoris looks like. Most doctors don’t, either. True! Hardly any men do. It a beautiful thing that spreads its wings inside us and caresses our vaginas.

I got tired of books about things sensual or sexual being called “dirty” or “smut.” Some are, I guess, but I love my characters. I want women, and men, to love and embrace and find joy in sex.I want them to feel okay about the things they want, the fantasies they have. Lotsa fun sex! Hey, it’s great for your health!

Her Billionaires Box Set by Julia Kent

hbcoll_625x1000FROM NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIA KENT–all FOUR episodes of the bestselling series in ONE boxed set!

COULD SHE REALLY FIND THE RIGHT GUY ON THE INTERNET?

“Hot, luscious woman who can suck a golf ball through forty feet of garden hose seeks rippling-ab’d firefighter who has a tongue that thrums like a hummingbird and enjoys painting my toenails and eating Ben & Jerry’s out of the carton while watching Orange is the New Black.”

Curvy business analyst Laura Michaels stared at the online dating site’s registration screen and frowned. That’s what she really wanted to write. By the time her best friend, Josie, edited and clicked “Send,” her personals ad was more fantasy than reality.

OR WOULD SHE GET MORE THAN SHE BARGAINED FOR?

When two different guys — Dylan Stanwyck and Mike Pine — replied within two days, she seemed doubly blessed. After a first date with model-turned-firefighter Dylan that ended in bed — and with a huge misunderstanding — Laura came home from her Walk of Shame to an invitation for a hike with ski instructor Mike. The Great Outdoors became the setting for so much more…

Caught between two men — literally — who turned out to be roommates and secret billionaires, Laura makes a startling discovery about her own capacity for passion.

And, maybe, long-term love in an unconventional romance with two men that pushes every boundary.

Including her own.

This 122,000 word/450 page boxed set includes all four parts of the Her Billionaires series (Her First Billionaire, Her Second Billionaire, Her Two Billionaires, Her Two Billionaires and a Baby).

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Fiancee by Julia Kent

SFABFAll of our best dates end up in the emergency room….

I planned the perfect proposal. Plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and–her favorite–tiramisu. The perfect setting. The perfect woman.

The perfect everything.

Dad gave me my late mother’s engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn’t care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, and that will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the internet.

I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses.

And it was perfect.

Until Shannon swallowed the ring.

Fall Again: Beginnings by Donna Figueroa

FALL-AGAIN-Beginnings-8What if you were to meet the perfect person – your best friend, soul mate and the great love of your life – but at the wrong time?
That question is at the heart of Fall Again, a contemporary romantic series about two working actors, Marc Guiro and Lauren Phillips set against the backdrop of New York, Los Angeles and points in-between over two decades.
In the first book, Beginnings you’ll meet Marc & Lauren and their closest friends in the optimistic New York City of the late 1980’s.
Marc Guiro is from Montreal Canada and is pursuing acting against the wishes of his family. Marc’s serious approach to life rarely allows others to get close.
Lauren Phillips is confident, positive and has been fixated on moving to New York and becoming an actor since she was a child growing up in the Midwest. Since her graduation from college Lauren’s sole focus becomes her career.
Marc and Lauren meet when they are very young and focused on building their careers as professional actors in New York City. Despite an obvious attraction, decorum dictates that their relationship remain platonic.
One major complication is Miriam, Marc’s longtime girlfriend and the daughter of his father’s business partner. Miriam hates everything about his life in New York and has her mind set on marriage.
Over time Marc and Lauren find themselves struggling to maintain the façade of being just friends to those around them, as well as to each other. But regardless of their best efforts to remain friends, Marc and Lauren fall in love.
The Fall Again series not only follows the lives of Marc and Lauren, but also provides a realistic look into the lives of working actors.

Targeted Audience: Women 21+

I earned my BA in Acting and speech from Emerson College in Boston MA.

Last year I introduced fiction into our repertoire, and our quarterly Fiction Showcases have featured established published authors as well as those new to the fiction genre.

My passions are shopping, fashion, traveling, classic Hollywood and the city of San Francisco.

My husband writer comedian Tony Figueroa and I live in Los Angeles with our three adorable and neurotic cats.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Fall Again: Beginnings is the first book in the Fall Again Series. My original plan had been to write a short story before I decided to write a stand alone novel. The novel eventually grew into a series.

My story is set in the world of working actors. I naturally drew from my own experiences in the industry (I began working professionally as an actor while still in college) and from the experiences of other working actors. We work in a profession that is often misunderstood. I wanted to present a realistic glimpse into the lives of hard working artists as opposed to glamorous celebrities.

But this is also a Romantic novel. Shortly before I began writing I went to a girls night where the conversation turned to the subjects of first loves and the one who got away. Several women on this night wondered what would have happened if they had met someone from their pasts at a different time in their lives.

Not long after this girls night, I began writing to the theme: what if you met the perfect person- your best friend, your soul-mate and the great love of your life…but at the wrong time?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A conversation with Bella Andre, who noted that my publishing journey seemed a little unfocused, and gave me advice based on her own success. She told me to consider writing a series. Write them well, but write them quickly, she said. Don’t sacrifice quality, but the key is to write them, and keep writing them. Her exact words? “Write the books. Write the books. Write all of the books.” I will always – alwaysalwaysalways- be grateful to Bella Andre for that advice, and she will always live epic and beloved in my mind for taking an hour out of her exceptionally busy life to mentor a newer author.
