  AUTHORS & BLURBS CIARAN (Blood & Bourbon 1.5) by Seraphina Donavan seraphina teaser.jpg Ciaran Darcy has the skills to protect Loralei Crawford from the drug dealers that want her dead. But given the epic way he screwed up their relationship, she doesn’t trust him beyond that. He just has to keep them both alive long enough to change her mind, and to show her that she can trust him not just with her life, but her heart. KIDNAPPED by Christina Tomes April teaser 1.jpg Nothing scared Rebecca Peyton. Not men. Not running a billion-dollar development company. Certainly not any kidnapping threats. When the threats become more serious, Rebecca's company hires Carolina Security and an old family friend to protect her. Lucas Hamilton has always been a shadow. First behind the Calhoun family, then behind the scenes in the military, now he's behind the only person who has ever seen him, Rebecca. Hired to protect her from kidnappers, his plans to keep her safe are made complicated when she breaks down the walls around his heart. CONTRACT MARRIAGE by Laramie Briscoe laramie teaser version2.jpg Penelope and Parker Torres are by all accounts a happily married couple. They play up to America, and they do their job in front of the camera. Behind the scenes, there is someone who wants to hurt, Penelope, but neither of them know who, where, or why. A snapshot in the life of a celebrity is just that – one moment of their life. They see what we want them too, behind the scenes it’s all contracts and legalities. But what happens when the lines blur and protection is more like love? ONE BROKEN PROMISE by Deanndra Hall teaser-1.png Bodyguard to a bullied high school girl - that’s definitely not the assignment Hayden Patterson wanted. It doesn’t take him long to figure out that the victim is really the bully, however, and Hayden’s left to deal not only with his sympathy for the real victim, but with the feelings her mother brings to the surface of his tattered heart too. When an even bigger threat looms over the quiet, lonely teen, it’s all he can do to keep her safe while trying to remember his biggest rule: Hayden Patterson only sleeps with a woman once. And he’s afraid if he’s not careful, her mom is the one woman who could make him break that rule. TANGLED VOWS by Stella Hunter TVteaser-1.png Army veteran Bailey Lennox usually enjoys her job as a bodyguard for Halvard Protection Services.

SAFE MODE: A Masters Protection Case File by Paige Morris vanessa teaser 1.jpg Willow James is a female IT specialist in a position where a woman is not wanted. Her superiors decide that hiring a man, Cyrus Masters, in her place to do a routine installation, while she poses as his secretary will fix the problem at hand. This installation, however is anything but routine. It will expose secrets that no one can hide from. In the end, Willow needs protection from more than the people who want to see her program fail.

I thought I’d left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn’t belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn’t listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.
I didn’t ask for a hero. I don’t want to be saved.
To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin’ out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I’d assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.
I didn’t want to be her hero. Some girls don’t need to be saved.
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.

A Roll In The Hay Hot Crossed Buns Love


1 Chef (equal parts sexy and carefree)

1 Pianist (equal parts uptight and endearing)
1/8 inch of drywall between their apartments
2 opinions on everything

Combine all ingredients, mix vigorously, and be prepared for an explosion of heat.

Pianist Ella Thomas is training for the competition of her life. Finally in an apartment of her own, she can practice from dawn till dusk.

Jake Matson is living his dream as Head Chef at one of the most popular restaurants in San Francisco. He's easy going, flirtatious and not looking for love. He didn't expect to be completely distracted by the girl next door, whose buttoned-up appearance hides the seductive firecracker underneath.

What happens when opposites attract? As their tension fires up, can they create a new kind of music together or will everything boil over?

Pianist Ella Thomas is training for her latest competition as she recently moved into her first apartment at twenty five.  Her piano takes up most of the space but she does not care.  She is barely surviving on Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup and her microwave to heat it up.  She suffers from panic attacks from performing and unlike her parents and sister, she rather classical music and sheet music to jazz.  

Jake Matson is head chef at a popular restaurant and dream job.  Unfortunately their first encounters do not go well as he tells her to keep the noise down at ten in the morning and then she complains about his noise in the early morning.

Things heats up between the two of their paths keep crossing.  Jake finds himself attracted to her despite himself. Will these opposite people find a way to be together?  Things will heat up in and out of the kitchen.

Good-bye, with Love. by Niquel.

Have you ever wished you could have something so bad, even though you knew it was forbidden?
Jonathan Gates was just that—forbidden. He was everything I could ever want in a man: charming, a great listener, open-minded, and funny. It also didn't hurt that he was easy on the eyes.
We'd been through a lot together: breakups, makeups, firsts, lasts, and anything else you can imagine. I was once told he was my soul mate, but I refused to believe that.
I didn't want to love him. I didn't want to fall for him because...he was my best friend!
But I did, and I fell for him hard. I was in love with my best friend, and it was time he knew how I really felt.
Age: Sixteen
Diary Entry: Broken
Dear Diary,
Here I am again, bawling my eyes out, heartbroken, and feeling so numb that I’m scaring myself. I feel like I’m being punished for wanting to love someone. Why is love such a tormenting thing for me? I wish someone could take the feeling of love away from me so I wouldn’t keep getting hurt. My heart feels like someone put their hand on my chest and dug their nails into my heart until it was a second away from stopping. 
When will it stop? The pain of rejection—that’s what this has to be. Once I fall for someone and make it clear they’re all I want, they slap me in my face and tell me with their actions that they don’t love me in the same way, whether they mean to or not. It took me a while to let him back in after the last time and now it’s happening all over again and I can’t face this hurtful truth. I never thought he’d put me through this again and now that I’m older and really understand what true love means, I didn’t think I’d be here all alone again. 
This was complete bull and the stupid note he left didn’t make things any better. How could he do this to me? And leave me a note so vague I don’t even know why he’s really leaving? Who would try to hurt his family? 
I tried so hard not to fall for him again and what does he do? He takes my heart, stomps on it, and buries it in the dirt. 
I can’t deal with this right now. Screw you Jonathan Gates. Even if it takes me years, I will get over you, and you better not try and weasel your way back into my life.
Good-bye to this chapter of my life. It’s time to grow up and enjoy the next few years.

They met when they were twelve and became best friends along the way.  He was the new kid in town who was running with him mon from an abusive father and she was about to start chemo for cancer.  They were always there for each other in good and bad times.

Along the way, they managed to fall for each other but when they finally admit their feelings something comes along the way to tear them apart as he finds somehow to leave her due to his family.   When he does return, he tries to be just friend but they are drawn back together and as soon as they attempt to be together he disappears once again.

Will the third time be the charm or are they destined to be apart?  Even first loves are full of heartache and the path is never easy but when you are meant to be it will happen.
