Synopsis

A Second Chance at Love…
Raef Alvero has been groomed his entire life to take over as CEO of Alvero & Alvero. He’s also spent his entire life trying to please his father…Even if that meant giving up the one woman he ever truly loved. Now fate has intervened. Raef is faced with handling the buyout  and closing down of a chain of hair salons…one in which Gemma works. Five years has passed since Raef decided to leave Gemma, but everything comes rushing back when he walks into the salon. All the pain, all the memories…all the love. And he knows he won’t let her go again. Not ever, no matter what else he has to give up.
Can be a dangerous thing.
Gemma Warren knew the salon franchise had been sold …but she never expected the new owner to show up at the shop –and she really never expected he would be the same 6 feet of seduction who left her heartbroken and pregnant 5 years ago. But what she’s feeling –aside from total shock – isn’t hatred. The feelings of love Raef left her with have just been buried deep in her heart ,and now that he’s back, keeping them secret from him will be as impossible as keeping their daughter a secret. With pictures of little Charlotte displayed all over the salon, Raef would know immediately he had a child. Then what…? Could he ever forgive Gemma for hiding her?
A second chance is all they need, some time to forgive, but there’s a sinister plan already set in motion—one that will threaten not only Raef and Gemma’s happiness, but the life of their little girl.

Author Bio

Growing up in rural Louisiana, I dreamed of one day being a writer. Although it took many years to achieve that dream, life has been fulfilling along the way. Being a wife and a mother are the things I consider my biggest accomplishments. My family is number one in my eyes.
By day, I work in a public school finance. At night and on weekends, I become a writer. Outside of work and writing, I enjoy reading, photography and traveling. I am obsessed with all things Disney and Thirty Seconds to Mars. In addition to my husband and son, my three favorite men are Mickey Mouse, Jared Leto and Shannon Leto.
I can’t forget to mention my two babies, Beaux–our half Yorkie, half Labrador doggie–and Kat–who is actually a cat.  They complete our little family and have helped with our empty-nest since our children have become adults. They are very spoiled and have a hard time understanding why they can’t be in my lap when I am writing.

Offensive Rebound: Holding Court

Blurb

TRAE
It’s a call that changes my life–and my little girl’s. Years ago, playing for the NBA was the dream, but the Seattle Stallions suck. Worse than that, my old teammate is now the star center–not to mention my number one rival. There has to be a catch, some sort of agenda. Before I was injured, I was the best. Now? There’s no way they want me.

But when I see the roster and salaries, it all comes together. It’s a chance to get on the court again and change our lives. And I just can’t wait for the opportunity to finally take him down. What I never counted on is Courtney Cohen being the game changer.

COURTNEY
I inherited the Bad News Bears of the NBA. When I discovered the star center, my ex fiancé, cheating on me, all I want is to jump ship before the whole thing sinks. But with revenge on my mind, I exact a plan. Take down the dirty player and save my father’s dream.

Suddenly twelve minutes is too little time, and a season is not long enough.

EXCERPT

“You still afraid of me?” Courtney asks. I push her hair out of her face. “No.” “I’m afraid of you.” “No beer muscles tonight?” I ask, glancing at her empty glasses. She shakes her head. I scoot in closer to her. “Tell me what you’re afraid of.” “Liking you too much,” she says then takes a drink. I turn her in her seat so she’s facing me. “You’re gonna like me even more when I’m inside you.” Her body grows taut. “You can’t say stuff like that. It makes me uncomfortable.” “Well, now I’m going to have to do it more often to get you used to it; make you crave it, beg for it.”

#TheGrizzlysTaleRelease
Synopsis

Are they strong enough to be her men?
Cunning. Everyone uses the word to describe Katy. In Quarterz, the virtual reality world where men and women compete as hunter or prey, Katy has never been captured. At least, not until the bear clan arrived in the game. Powerful, smart, and straight out of her fantasies, Katy can’t always outmaneuver the tests they create.
When the clan challenges her to take their team on in a real game of hunters and prey, she can’t resist the lure.
Is she strong enough to be their woman?
Grizz, Oso, and Kodie are Pantherian bear shifters, born into a culture where men have learned to share and protect their species’ most limited resource—females. They’ve accepted they will never have a Pantherian female as their shared mate.  But can a human female handle a Pantherian, mating trio. If so, will she still want them when she knows what they are?
Are any of them strong enough to outsmart fate?
When the game puts hearts and lives on the line, taking a loss is the only way to win.



Nara lives on a small farm in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains. When she’s not writing, she loves to run, hike, bike, and kayak. Every story she tells incorporates her love of animals, nature, and adventure.

Jasmine: Kings of Guardian Book 6
by Kris Michaels
Genre: Military Romance
#jasminekingsofguardian
Book 6 in the series but all books can be read standalone

Synopsis

Jasmine King loved her chosen profession, until assigned as personal security to Chad Nelson. The sex-fueled country superstar was either a stone cold killer or the target of a deranged psychopath. Regardless, the self-absorbed bad boy was now hers to protect, and she’d be damned if she’d fail—despite the singer’s best efforts to expand her job into a more personal one.
One minute Chad’s the reigning king of country music and in the next, an FBI murder suspect—two murders, actually. As if that’s not bad enough, he’s in the cross-hairs of someone who wants him dead. The distraction of his gorgeous bodyguard couldn’t have come at a worse time.  He’s got a front row seat to the destruction of his wildly successful and carefully constructed life.
When the race to get him to safety reveals pursuit by not only Chad’s enemies but worse, Guardian’s, positions are reversed as the country star reaches back to a military past and helps free Jasmine from a bloody confrontation.  Jasmine realizes Chad is much more than his surface appearance. Perhaps he’s what she’s needed all along.

Excerpt:

He looks devilishly handsome.

His hair is combed back and oh, how I love every chiseled inch of his face. He’s the first to move, prying his hands from his pockets, eyes flaring, inhaling visibly—his inhale stretching the fabric of that black tux.

Disbelief and a punch of longing to have all of this man, his love and his name and his babies, hits me as he approaches. I’m gazing at him walk to me down the hall of the White House residence, both of us ready to attend a social dinner. My first public event with him.

I need a moment, or a thousand moments, to adjust to this new role.

Matt continues advancing—with every step his eyes drinking me in, his lips curling in a seductive, appreciative smile.

“You ready?” He stretches out his hand.

I nod and look at that hand—the hand I’ve held so many times, and that held me. I slide my fingers down the length of his, and he grips them and leads me down the staircase with him.
