Tycoon by Katy Evans Publication Date: June 20th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Tycoon, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans is LIVE!!!

Tycoon Amazon
He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

My name is Kash Knight and I’m a fucking protector… It runs deep in me, this need to dedicate myself to a woman and make her feel secure and cared for in every single way. Not just physically, but emotionally. But when women see my hard body, all they want is for me to pleasure them and give them their ultimate fantasy. I need something more though, someone I can give my heart to. And when my eyes land on the sassy blonde that seems too busy to put her needs first, I know without a doubt that it’s her I want to take out and show what it feels like to go out with a real man. To be touched by a real man. Eden Quinn… I need a chance for her to see me as something other than just a male fucking stripper– a dirty temptation that knows how to make a whole room of women hot and wet. Slowly, I begin to work my way in and when I find out she has a son that means more to her than life itself, I want so much more than I ever could’ve fucking imagined. I want to take care of them and show Eden what it’s like to be safe and protected. I’m making her mine and nothing is going to stand in my way… not even him.

“Have you been with anyone other than your ex?” I have to ask, because it seems as if she hasn’t touched anyone other than him. I can tell by the sound of her breathing at just being so close to my dick. “No,” she answers, quickly. “He was my first… there hasn’t been anyone since.” “Fuck Eden…” I squeeze her hand in mine, just thinking about being the only other guy to be inside of her other than the father of her child. I have no idea why that turns me on even more, but fucking shit, I want to be her next. I want a chance to show her how a real man takes care of a woman and gives her everything she needs, and craves. “What?” She squeezes my thigh, causing my cock to jerk. “Does that make you want me even more? Knight never did it for me.” I nod my head and grip the steering wheel with both hands, fighting so damn hard to control myself. “You have no idea the things that makes me want to do to you. To give to you.” I place my hand over hers again and squeeze. “Especially knowing he never gave you what you deserved. A woman’s needs should always come before a man’s.” The rest of the drive to the baseball field is spent with me trying my damned hardest to keep some kind of restraint. It’s not easy, especially with her hand gripping my thigh, but I need to do it. A real man knows when a woman’s ready and when that time is right; I’ll let go of all restraint, holding nothing back. “Oh look, there’s no one here,” she says, while jumping out of my truck and shutting the door behind her. I quickly jump out after her and reach into the bed of my truck for some balls, a bat and a couple mitts. “You know…” she spins around and faces me, while walking backwards. “I’ve gotten pretty good over the months, while playing with my son. Just a warning.” I believe it. Alec is damn good at playing ball. I know because I taught him. “I guess we’ll see just how good. But I should warn you…” “Let me guess…” she says teasingly, while looking me over. “You play better in the nude.” I laugh and hand her the bat. “I do everything better in the nude. Again… a proven fact.” I arch a brow and grab a ball, tossing it up, before catching it. “But, I was gonna say I hit pretty far. Not sure it’ll be a fair game.” She keeps her eyes on me, trying her best to look intimating as she strips her light jacket off and tosses it at the fence with a cocked brow. Her confidence is pretty damn sexy right now. “Oh yeah. Let’s play a different kind of game them, Mr. Cocky. Show me how good you are when there’s a little distraction.” “Okay.” I laugh, dying inside to hear what she’s about to come up with. “Your rules. Like I said… I’ll do anything you want.” She lifts a brow and steps around the fence, up to the batter box. “Whoever hits the furthest out of three balls, gets to choose an item of clothing for the other person to take off. The first person down to their underwear, loses.” I smirk while stretching, letting her know, I’m not taking it easy on her. “You do know I strip for a living, remember? Getting me out of my clothes is pretty fucking easy.” “Yes. But a challenge is sort of fun… don’t you agree?” She’s the one looking cocky now, as if she expects she won’t have to take much off. “More than you know.” I undo the top few buttons of my shirt to give me some more wiggle room and walk over to stand at the pitcher’s mound. “Game fucking on.” Placing the bat between her legs, she holds up a finger. “One sec…” I watch as she messes around behind her back as if she’s either loosening or undoing her bra. “You’re not the only one who needs a little more wiggle room,” she admits with a grin. “Hey… I don’t have a problem with that. It’s the only thing you’re gonna have on by the time this game is through, so you might as well make sure it’s comfortable. Ready?” “I love your confidence,” she says with a grin. It’s cute on you.” She nods and gets into a batter stance. “I’m ready.” I grin and hold a finger up. “Wait… I’m not quite ready yet.” Placing the ball under my arm, I slowly undo my shirt and pull it open, making sure she gets a nice view of my chest and abs. “You play dirty, I see.” She shakes her head and puts on a serious face. “Show me what you got, big guy.” “You sure you want me to?” I lift a brow and reach down to unbutton my jeans. “That’s not what I meant!” she yells. “Oh.” I smile. “Just checking…” I catch her gaze zone in on my chest, watching it flex as I prepare to pitch the ball. “Hey!” I yell. “Eye on the ball.” “Just throw it,” she demands, while looking up and pretending she wasn’t just staring at my body. “I’m ready.” Keeping my gaze on her, I throw the ball and smile when she misses. “That was my warm up swing,” she says with a small smile. “Don’t judge me just yet.” “I wasn’t going to blame it on my body or anything...” I reach up and catch the ball as she tosses it back. “I swear.” “Good. Because you’d be wrong anyway.” She smiles and gets back into position, clearing her throat a few times and fighting to keep her eyes off me. It has my confidence spiking. After Eden takes all her swings, only hitting one out of three balls, I take a swing, hitting the first ball so far that we just let it go. “I believe that means I’m the winner of round one…” I nod down at her feet. “I’ll start out easy so you’re not naked within the first two rounds. Lose the sandals.” Surprising me, Eden strips her shirt off with a confidence that has my cock jumping. “I’m not worried, Kash. I won’t be naked within two rounds. So don’t take it easy on me.” Apparently, she’s going to play by her own rules, just not the ones she set for the game. Holy fuck… I have no doubt she’s doing this as more of a distraction than anything. A way to get back at me for screwing up her first three swings. And seeing as I can’t seem to take my eyes away from her perfect breasts; it might just help her at least get my shirt the rest of the way off. “I’ve mastered multitasking pretty damn well. I’ll prove it in more ways than one, Eden.” I say next to her ear as we pass each other to switch places. You can tell my words have worked her up a bit, because she doesn’t seem quite as confident as she prepares for the second round. She shakes her head. “No talking… cheater.” I laugh at her calling me a cheater. “You’re the one standing across from me topless, when all you had to lose were your shoes. You want to play… so I’m playing.” And apparently, my dick wants to play too, because it’s standing at full attention as I take her in, standing across from me in that red, lacy bra. “Any day now,” she taunts. “Who’s distracted now?” I pitch her three easy balls to hit this time, wanting to make sure this game doesn’t end too fast. I’m enjoying myself with her way too damn much to let this game be over soon. I’m actually surprised when she hits the third ball far enough to just let the ball go and use a new one. It’s pretty fucking hot. Especially the way her breasts bounced as she swung. Shit… how can I play this off? Fuck it. I won’t. I let myself be distracted as I take my swings, not hitting them far for shit. Truthfully, I want out of these damn clothes anyway. I want us both naked, our bodies pressed together as I give up my restraint and take her. I want to feel her warm skin against mine, our sweaty bodies rubbing together as I bury myself deep and make her forget about Knight all together and how shitty he was to her. I want to erase her memory with any other man, only allowing her to think about me. Setting my gaze on hers, I pull my shirt off and toss it, before unzipping my jeans and yanking them off too. This has her pulling her eyes away from mine to scan over my entire body. “Your turn,” I say, not giving her a chance to ask me why I took off two items of clothing instead of one. She’ll find out soon enough…

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW ~ BAD PENNY by Staci Hart

SBPRBanner-BADPENNY-RB.jpg

"Witty, sexy as all hell, and addictive like no other, Staci Hart BRINGS IT with Bad Penny."

-T.M. Frazier, USA Today Bestselling Author

  

Bad Penny, an all-new romantic comedy standalone from Staci Hart is now LIVE!

cover-wrap-penny copy 4.57.20 PM

Synopsis

Nothing good comes after the third date.
See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.
Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.
So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.
Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ AT HIS MERCY by Shelly Bell





















Angel in his arms . . . Devil at her heels

One last, no-strings night of indulgence. That's all Tristan wants before he begins a much-needed new chapter in his life. Instead he finds an innocent angel in pink who brings him to his knees.

Isabella is done hiding from the world . . . and her haunting memories. Discovering courage in the arms of a perfect stranger, she finally lets go and sheds her inhibitions.

To Isabella's shock, she soon learns that Tristan is more than her mystery man-he's her professor. But Tristan isn't the only person who's found Isabella on campus. A dark figure from her past has come back for her. Now Tristan will risk anything to protect Isabella . . . even if it costs him his life.


“Good morning, everyone.”


Bent over, she froze. Her body broke out in goosebumps and her heart thumped erratically.
It wasn’t possible. Her mind must be playing tricks on her. There was no way that the man who had dominated her last week could be there right now, twelve hours north of the city where they’d met. She racked her brain, trying to remember if he’d mentioned anything about his personal life, but she came up completely empty. There had been plenty of innuendo and dirty talk during that night, but he’d never revealed anything about himself other than his first name.

How could he be a professor at his age? Weren’t they supposed to be…old?

But as the man behind the voice passed her on his way to the front of the room, she caught his scent, a scent she’d fantasized about for days, and sat up tall. Her gaze latched onto the back of him, raking over his lean form, and her chest tightened as though all the oxygen had been sucked out of the room.

Just a few days ago, that form had been between her thighs.

When he reached the podium at the front of the room, he turned to the class. “I’m Professor Kelley, and I’ll be teaching Intro to Business this semester in Professor Crawford’s place.”

Her fingers curled around the arm of the chair, gripping it as if it could save her from the horror of the situation.

She couldn’t move.

Couldn’t breathe.

Memories of that night swirled through her mind, lighting her on fire. Him caging her against the wall as they negotiated underneath the stars. Him biting her breasts and sucking her nipples until she writhed in ecstasy. Him intertwining their hands and looking into her eyes as he slowly brought her to an explosive climax. Him waking her up twice more that night, one time with his mouth between her legs.

Oh my God.

It was him.

Tristan.

She had fucked her professor.

Properly.

Hell, the bruises from that night still marred her skin. Whenever she changed her clothes, she’d made a point of checking to see if they were still there. They were reminders of how easily he’d commanded her body and the ways he’d brought her pleasure through pain.

She thought she’d never see him again, but now he was here, standing in front of her wearing a white button-down shirt with his sleeves rolled up, showing off those muscular forearms of his, and all she could think about was how he’d used those muscles to hold himself over her as he thrust inside her.

“What happened to Professor Crawford?” a girl asked from the back.

Right. Professor Crawford. The man she was supposed to assist all year for her work-study. The one who held the future of her college education in his hands.

Tristan—no—Professor Kelley directed his attention to the girl sitting only a few rows behind Isabella, causing her heart to go from a gallop to a full-on sprint. Would he recognize her when he saw her? Or was she already forgotten as just one more interchangeable girl in a long line of submissives he’d fucked? She didn’t know which was worse.

“Unfortunately, Professor Crawford had a stroke a couple of weeks ago,” he said, only a handful of feet away from her. Why did she have to sit in the front row? “Dean Lancaster has asked me to take over his classes for the year.”

For a second, she lost the ability to breathe. Professor Crawford didn’t hold the future of her college education in his hands…

Professor Kelley did.

She was at his mercy.




A sucker for a happy ending, Shelly Bell writes erotic suspense and action-filled erotic thrillers with high-emotional stakes for her alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines.

She began writing upon the insistence of her husband who dragged her to the store and bought her a laptop. When she’s not working her day job, taking care of her family, or writing, you’ll find her reading the latest smutty romance.

COVER REVEAL ~ WHISPERED PRAYERS OF A GIRL by Alex Grayson


3...2...1....

COVER REVEAL!




Her whispered prayers break her...

At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart wrenching pleas to bring her father back. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Catalina’s Valley is to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.

Scars mar his body. Pain has darkened his life…

Three years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and the uttered rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, not meant to happen, but I wonder if maybe it was.

A tortured soul meets a damaged heart…

A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt of the past keep them apart?








Alex Grayson is originally from the south, but has recently moved to Northern Ohio.

Her and her husband bought a house on two acres of land and live there with their daughter, son, one dogs, two cats, eight ducks, and three chickens. She hopes to eventually get a couple of goats to add to their country way of living. Besides her family and home, her next best passion is reading. She is often found with her nose obsessively stuck in a book, much to the frustration of her husband and daughter. On more than one occasion Alex found herself wanting a book to go a certain way, but it didn’t. With these thoughts in mind, she decided to start writing stories according to her own visions. Although this is a new endeavor for her, she hopes that readers find her concepts on romance intriguing and captivating. Alex welcomes and encourages feedback, of any kind.
