Heat Rating: Spicy

 

Synopsis:

 

– When it comes to revenge, nothing is sacred, not even Christmas.

 

DEA field agent Jarrett Brandt returns home to visit his brother's grave, not to reconnect with his first true love.

Now widowed with a son, Marissa Reinn Brandt expects nothing from the one who broke her heart—the twin brother of the man she’d married—but then her son offers him a place to stay for Christmas.

As they rekindle the flames of love that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present threaten to destroy everything they hold dear.

 

Excerpt:

 

Marissa stood up from the table, grabbed a few plates and headed toward the kitchen. She stuffed the plates in the trashcan and washed her hands under warm water in the sink. 

She didn’t want Jarrett to stay with them but how could he refuse? Her son made a compelling argument and it was damn hard to ignore his tears, especially when they weren’t crocodile tears.

Living under the same roof as Jarrett, even for just a few days, wouldn’t be easy. After their amazing night together, Marissa couldn’t fathom keeping her hands off him. His tanned, muscled body nearly made her drool. Just thinking about it doubled the saliva in her mouth. She had vowed just an hour ago to keep her distance and not sleep with him again. Now, she didn’t know how not to sleep with him. With the guestroom bordering her bedroom and Jason’s room down the hall, she could easily sneak inside Jarrett’s room and pleasure his body for hours.

A feeling of unease crept up her spine. She turned to face Jarrett as he approached from the swinging kitchen door. She sighed and turned off the faucet. She dried her hands with a soft towel and refused to meet his gaze.

“I’m sorry, Marissa. If staying here will be an inconvenience, I’ll tell Jason I can’t.”

She shook her head. “He’ll blame me.”

“No, I’ll say that I have to go back to San Francisco for work or Montana for the ski trip. He’ll understand.”

A raw laugh crawled up her throat. “He’ll understand? He’ll scream and beg you to stay. Once you leave, he’ll cry for hours.”

“Marissa, what do you want from me? I can’t stay forever. I don’t want to hurt him or you, I swear it, but I will leave. It’s only a matter of when, not if.”

She grasped the counter to keep steady. She hated how much her foolish heart hurt with those words. “I know that. I don’t expect anything different.” She swallowed hard to strengthen her voice. “I’m not your wife. Jason is not your son. We’re not good enough reasons for you to give up the life you built in California. I don’t want anything from you. I’ll understand when you leave but Jason won’t, not that it’s any of your concern. I’ll deal with his pain when the time comes.”

He clutched his fists and turned away. “You sure know how to make a man feel like shit.”

She folded her arms. “That’s not my intention.”

“It doesn’t change the facts.” He grabbed the cell phone from his pocket and checked the time. “Am I staying here or not? It’s your choice.”

She considered throwing the bastard out on his ass. If it wasn’t for Jason, she would. “You’re staying.”

“Okay.” He gripped the phone tight. “I’ll call my boss and let him know your address.”

“Fine. I assume your bike has a lot of compartments for extra clothes and travel supplies. I’ll show you to the guestroom when you’re ready.”

Jarrett nodded and headed to the swinging door, now still, but paused before passing through. “Thank you, Marissa. I do appreciate it.”

She fisted her hands. “Thank Jason.”

With that, he left the kitchen.

Harmony's Embrace by Amber Daulton , #TheWildRosePress , #Romance , #hotread



Harmony’s Embrace

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press

Release Date: November 16th, 2020

ASIN: B08L73TB9C

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Blurb 


Divorced dad Birley Haynes is too busy raising his children and running his family’s music academy to start a relationship. Then Harmony Holdich, his high school sweetheart, returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont for Christmas and falls into his bed. She brings light and fun back into his life, but he can’t brush aside the threatening incidents around his workplace.

Harmony hadn’t expected a complication like Birley, especially so soon after the death of her unfaithful husband. With her life a mess, she plans to move across the country and start over. All she can offer him is a fling, but her heart yearns for more.

When the threats rise, how will Birley keep his children safe and convince Harmony to give love another chance?


Reuniting with the man who broke her heart has never felt so right.





Excerpt (PG-13)


Dear God. His heart slammed harder. He’d died and gone to Heaven.

Harmony stretched her arms above her head and danced in the middle of the living room. Her hips pulsated with the beat of the music. Twisty locks of her hair bounced around her shoulders. She winked, then glided her hands across her breasts and stomach, daring his gaze to follow.

Birley licked his lips. The organ pressing against his zipper throbbed. Sweat slicked his nape. He dropped his scarf beside her purse, jacket, and beanie on the coffee table.

“Dance with me?”

Her husky entreaty ricocheted through him like a ping-pong ball. How could he deny her? He gripped her waist. She slid her arms around him. They swayed, their bodies a scant inch apart. She nuzzled his neck, her breath fanning his skin. His hair prickled. The air crackled around them. He shuddered and held her tighter.

“I’ve missed this.”

His chest heaved. He struggled to fill his lungs with air. “Dancing?”

“Dancing with you.” Harmony stroked his clean-shaven jaw. “I’m sorry things didn’t work out with you and Susannah, but I wouldn’t trade this moment for anything.”

Oh, God. He kissed her and swept his tongue past her parting lips. Delicious. The taste of chocolate and wine clung to her breath. He nibbled and licked the smooth slope of her neck.

“Birley, yes.” She ducked her head and claimed his mouth with hers. Then she feathered kisses across his face. “I need your hands, your mouth, your scent all over me. Take me, Birley. Hard, soft, I don’t care.”

Fuck. Her breathy plea wrapped around his heart and shot blood to his groin. She eased back, drawing him with her. The wall halted her retreat, and he trapped her between it and his body. Their tongues dueled and teeth clanked. Heat sizzled through his veins and pulsed through every organ. Her body writhed against his. Was she trying to drive him mad? He snapped open the fasteners of her pants and slid his finger beneath the waistband of her insulated leggings. Silk brushed his skin, then he slipped into her warmth.

#Murder, Marriage and a Country Doctor Find all in this #Historical #EroticMystery by @AnitaPhilmar #KindleUnlimited



 
Free on Kindle Unlimited

The 6th book in the Naked Bluff, Texas series, western, historical erotica set in 1860s.

Hell breaks loose while resting in the back of a wagon. Shots fire, her new friend falls off the front bench on top of her.


Dixy never expected this. After all, she is on her way out of Texas. As the daughter of a doctor, she has decided to head back to Georgia to help with the war efforts. The only problem is she has to depend on the help of others to get there.

Now, she is rushing to Naked Bluff to find a doctor to help Tobias. Only to have him die and make her the number one suspect. Unable to leave town, she is forced to stay with the town doctor.

Doctor Nathaniel Murphy claims she's everything he wants in a woman.
Can she believe him?
Or should she worry more about the killer?
After all, she's the only one who can identify him.

Excerpt:

“God, Nathaniel, you have to stop,” she groaned and dropped her head to his shoulder. 
“Not until you agree to marry me.” He massaged her backside, rocking his hard length against her abdomen.
Darn, but she’d never felt like this before, so hot and needy with every caress compelling her to shed her clothes and have skin to skin contact.
Shocked by her thoughts, she tightened her hands on his shoulders and fought to control her basic urges. “Just because I desire you, doesn’t mean we have to get married.”
He grinned. “Has a man ever fucked you?”
Stunned by his words, she shoved at his chest, disturbed by his bold manner. “Of course not.”
Without releasing her, his focus narrowed, and he glared. “Good, because from now on you’re mine. Do us both a favor and say yes.”

“To what?” She argued, not willing to give into his claim that he’d have a voice in what she did or didn’t do.

Injured Parole Officer Jeremiah “Jim” Borden never expected Calista Barlow, the sassy blonde waitress he’s craved for months, to ring his doorbell. She slips into his heart—and his bed—but he’s obsessed with a gangland investigation that threatens his career and maybe even his life.

Calista doesn’t trust easily, not with a daughter to protect and the stalker who keeps calling her. After her violent ex-boyfriend returns, she finds solace in Jim’s arms.

Jim may have to forego his need for answers to protect the ready-made family he adores, but how will he and Calista escape an unseen enemy that is always one step ahead of them?

 

When threats escalate, will Jim and Calista succumb, or fight for a love they can’t deny?

 

Excerpt 

 

“It’s complicated.”

“What’s so complicated, Calista? We can rent a delivery truck to move your furniture, clothes, dishes, and everything else here. If you don’t like the way I decorate, or my lack of d├ęcor, fine. I’ll donate whatever you don’t want. This will be your home. Truth be told, I prefer your place to mine. It’s warm and inviting there. I want you to bring that hominess here.”

“You don’t understand.”

“Damn right, I don’t.” He tossed the clothes back down. “What about Lacey? You really gonna separate her from Niko? She loves the cat.” Air hitched in his throat as tears welled in Calista’s eyes. He kicked the wall and pressed the heel of his palm to his forehead.

“You have secrets, Jeremiah. I’ve finally shared everything with you, and I mean everything, even though it humiliated me. But you won’t do the same. You don’t trust me enough. That’s the main reason why I won’t stay.” Calista grabbed her blouse and forced it over her head. “I’m not a kept woman, by the way. It’s time I look for another job. I refuse to rely on you for everything I have. I’ve been alone for too long to fall under a man’s thumb.”

“What the hell? When have I ever tried to control you?” He would do anything to get off the subject of secrets. “You’re independent, and I respect your work ethic. I will, however, act like a first-rate dick if you apply for a job at another crappy diner. You shouldn’t have to deal with bad managers and perverts all day. Besides, you’re a chef. You should open a bakery. That’s what you want, right?”

She slid on her panties. “Yeah, it is, but I won’t deplete Lacey’s college fund or possibly go into debt with a business loan to fulfill my dream.”

Jim cupped her flushed cheek. A small, barely noticeable blemish remained on her skin, and he brushed his lips across it.

“You promised me time, Jeremiah. Don’t push me into something I’m not ready for. When or if I choose to rent a truck, I’ll let you know. Until then, don’t mention it to me again.”

Jim rested his forehead on hers, biting back his confession. I love you. If I don’t have you, I’ll live the rest of my life incomplete. He needed a promise of marriage, but he just had to wait.
