Before, I was cold inside. Dead. I detached myself from the kill even as each one ate at my soul. Before.
Then she appeared. My target. Thankfully, she wasn’t targeted for death because it would have marked the only time I’ve ever failed my brothers. No way could I harm her. I knew it from the first moment I saw her there would be no harming her. What I didn’t expect was to be so captivated with her I started to realize there would be no life without her.
One way or another, I will have her. I will do what need to be done, but she…is…mine!

She visits Henry since he’s just lost his fiancee, and she’s surprised when Henry offers to help her when she can’t work.

What will happen when they’re together, with nothing stopping them from going after what they both want? The moment Henry touches her, April knows he’s the love of her life. Something so good, couldn’t be wrong, could it?

This is a previously published work. It has been expanded and edited for Evernight Publishing.

Excerpt ~

He stared at her, and something snapped.
Reaching out, he grabbed her wrist tugging her close. She tripped and fell against him. He sank his hands into her hair, gripping the length in his fist.
Henry took what he wanted for a damn change. When he slammed his lips down on hers, April tensed in his arms. He waited for her to push him away, but she simply stayed frozen.
Sliding his tongue along her bottom lip he coaxed her lips open moaning as her tongue touched his.
Time passed. He didn’t know how long it took for her to respond, and he didn’t care. Something changed within April. She wrapped her hands around his body, holding onto his shoulders. He pushed her up against the nearest wall, consuming her lips as she wrapped her arms around him.
This was what he’d been craving all those months but kept secret. April filled his thoughts, forcing him to want something he didn’t think he was allowed to have.
“No, stop talking,” he said, kissing down her neck, sucking on her pulse. He needed to taste her, to devour every inch of her.
“We can’t do this. Julia—”
“Yeah, we’re doing this, and she doesn’t matter. It was over with Julia.” He tugged on the hem of her shirt drawing it up over her body. He revealed her full, brown tits with a darker shade to her nipples. Her body was beautiful. Henry went to his knees before her, sucking one of her nipples into his mouth. She cried out. Glancing up, he saw her head thrown back against the wall.
She gripped his arms arching up against his touch.
He glided his hands down her full curves, memorizing them. Releasing her nipple, Henry pulled her sweatpants off, revealing her sweet pussy to view. Her mound was covered in pubic hair. He opened her thighs, sliding his fingers up to the lips of her sex.
“What are you doing?” she asked.
Henry didn’t say a word. He held her sex open and sucked her clit into his mouth. The taste of her exploded on his tongue, taking him by surprise. She tasted sweet and musky.
Moaning, he caressed down her slit to plunge into her tiny cunt. She was soaking wet. Her cum slid into his mouth, and he swallowed every drop, loving the taste of her.
When tasting her wasn’t enough, he pushed his sweatpants down, gripped his cock, and started to work his shaft.

The face of baby food, the darling of surfing commercials, and the exotic stunner who walked away with the Miss California title at eighteen, Mary Phillips has heard “you’re so beautiful” from childhood on. Tired of being her mother’s personal Barbie, she traded in her tiara and a lucrative modeling contract for combat boots and life as a Marine.

Excerpt Monday – Scot Appeal by Melissa Blue


Blurb ~

Marcus Baird has been called a lot of things: Scottish bastard, heartless, ruthless, but thanks to his new neighbor, he could add ginger buff guy. The ruthless part is true, at least. His current occupation as a handyman is a front to fuel a bidding war between his former employer and the next private equity firm in his sights—an undertaking that should have all his attention, but Ivy makes him an offer he cannot refuse.
When Ivy Stewart imagined losing her virginity, she was at least a decade younger, a yes away from marriage, and her perfect man would make sweet, slow love to her. Waiting for that dream to unfold has kept her watching life from the sidelines. She’s done biding her time. It’s foolhardy to choose Marcus. He’s a man with secrets and an ugly past, but he’s honest about what their relationship will be, charming and…he’s very good with his hands.
Since Marcus took Ivy into his bed, he’s lived a lie. He could be the man she needs. He isn’t a workaholic and he doesn’t really have a heart of stone. But it’s only a matter of time before Ivy finds out the truth, and once again he’s nothing but a Scottish bastard.

Excerpt ~

Surprised at the abrupt end to their conversation, he raised a brow. “I’m dismissed?”
She shifted, not looking at him. “What more is there?”
Touching her, kissing her, fucking her. “Lie or the truth?”
“Truth.” She didn’t even hesitate.
He cupped her cheek and then ran his thumb over her delicate chin. Her lids lowered. Aye. More of that. He wanted to jolt her, make her blush. It’s why he’d decided to flirt with her explicitly. Marcus wanted to see how she’d react and she hadn’t missed a step.
Fuck me.
“If you’d let me, I’d show you a world of pleasure. Teach you all the ways you like to be touched.”
The sound of her gasp tightened his insides. He dragged his thumb down, over the slender column of her neck, her collar bone and stopped at the rise of her breasts. She didn’t try to break the gentle contact.
“I wouldn’t just take your virginity. I’d do every filthy thing my imagination offered.” He drew a lazy sweeping circle over the swell of her breasts. “I’d make sure to ruin you for any other man. Makes me a dobber. I should feel bad about it.”
Her nipples pressed against her dress. He scraped his nails over one and watched her gaze darken. “So you’re right to be wary.”
“Marcus.” The condemnation got tangled up with her moan. She arched her back. Her body pleaded with him to do more. So much more.
He balled his hand to keep from sliding his fingers down her torso, and up her skirt to confirm just how wet his words had made her. “If left up to me, I won’t make the right or kind decision. You’ve waited this long. You should have someone who will make your first time matter. You’ll like everything I’d do to you, but there won’t be romance. The choice is yours, lass.”
Her breathing was unsteady. “I’m wondering if this is what the serpent said to Eve.”
“And you’ve already taken a bite of me.”

Excerpt Monday ~ A heart Not Easily Broken by M.J. Kane

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge.

When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

Excerpt ~

The song ended, and I opened my eyes to cheer with the rest of the crowd. I was noticed all right. Various men in my immediate vicinity threw out catcalls and whistles, which were flattering, but the drummer paid me no attention. In fact, no one in the band seemed to notice me, except for one man.
One of the guitar players watched me intently. Astonished, I nearly stumbled in my heels. He was attractive but… he was white, not what I was aiming for. My lips tilted in a small smile before I moved out of his line of sight, placing myself in front of dancers who’d moved closer to the stage blocking my view of the drummer.
The next song played, and again, I tried to get lost in the music. My eyes closed, it was impossible to find my groove again without feeling stalked. The hair on the back of my neck stood up, drawing my attention down the length of the stage and to the guitar player, who once again, watched me with a predatory gleam in his eye. When the song ended, I worked my way back to the bar.
Neither Yasmine nor Kaitlyn were there. They must have gone to the bathroom.
“What can I get you, miss?” the bartender asked, interrupting my thoughts.
Music from the loud speakers blasted again, after the MC announced the band was taking a brief intermission.
“Margarita, extra shot of tequila, please.” The bartender nodded and went to fill my order.
“Did you get a load of the blond guitar player? He’s hot!”
My attention turned to a busty brunette who’d taken up temporary residence in the empty seat next to me. I recognized her as being one of the women who’d been dancing next to me. She adjusted her boobs, primping while talking to her friend.
“He doesn’t know it yet, but I’m going home with him tonight,” she continued. Her friend giggled.
Good luck. She had a better chance than I did of finding a man tonight.
“Here you go.” The bartender placed a napkin in front of me with my drink.
“I’ve got this,” a deep voice said close to my ear, making me jump. It was incredibly sexy despite the fact it scared me. It also sent a warm tingle down my spine. Intrigued, I turned and found myself face-to-face with the guitar player. The same one my barstool neighbor wanted to go home with.
