About Bonding Games:

Former Navy SEAL Josh Steele gets tasked with a babysitting mission—watch over his boss’s daughter—a job he can only describe as hell. But when his assignment takes him to a tropical island, and he begins to see another side of Holly Fairfax, attraction sizzles between them—but he knows better than to risk his job for it.

 

Holly can’t believe that underneath those baggy clothes tech-guru Josh Steele is all ripped abs and sexy hotness. Ignoring said hotness is tough, especially since she has to work with him on the team-building exercises her boss has assigned if she wants a coveted promotion. It’s even harder when she discovers being around Josh brings out her naughty side – one she didn’t know she had.

 

But if she cracks the code on his cover, everything they’ve built could come crashing down.

About the Emergency Attraction

Ten years ago when Shane Maguire chose the Marines as his escape from some trouble of his own making, he only regretted one thing—leaving Sinclair Smith behind. Despite his best intentions, she ended up as the one that got away. Now he’s back, determined to reclaim everything he gave up, including Sinclair.

Sinclair is immune to Shane’s charms. She’s immune to stolen kisses behind the gym. And she’s definitely immune to that maneuver he did in the back seat of his car… Okay, maybe her hormones are susceptible, but she has absolutely no desire to risk anything on the bad boy who broke all his promises.

When a little emergency lands her at his mercy, he offers her a deal she can’t refuse. And this time, she’ll show Shane what it means to be left wanting…

Excerpt

“Not a mark on the car.”

Shane turned and walked back to where Sinclair stood with her skirt caught in the car door. “Or you?”

Her chin came up as he drew near. “That goes without saying.”

“Does it?” He dropped his gaze, and took a slow tour of some territory he’d once been intimately familiar with, starting at her bare shoulders and continuing to where satiny skin disappeared beneath blue silk. “I remember finding some extremely creative places to leave marks.” He ran his finger along the neckline of her dress. “So you wouldn’t get in trouble. You didn’t need to be as cautious with me.”

“I”—she broke off and swallowed—“I don’t remember…”

Oh, yeah. She remembered. He took the gift bag out of her hand and set it on the roof of the Mercedes. “I’ll let you in on a little secret, Sinclair.”

“What?” The word barely qualified as a whisper.

“I’m still extremely creative.” With that, he dropped to his knee, and peered behind her.

Her hand smacked his shoulder. “What are you doing?”

“Seeing if I can find a creative solution to your little predicament.” The position gave him an up-close look at the tangle of her skirt in the car door, the torn seam that rendered the dress un-wearable—he turned his head slightly—aaand the tiny, lacy, black panties that left mouthwatering portions of her ass bare to his view. Without doing any sort of motive check, he let his cheek brush the smooth flesh.

Muscles quivered in response. The hand on his shoulder switched to the top of his head, but she didn’t push him away. He trailed his lips across her thigh, automatically following the line of her panties where it hugged her hip and arrowed around front.

Her shuddery exhale triggered his inhale. Her scent stormed his senses, achingly familiar, and dangerously arousing. The molecules infiltrated his brain, coated the back of his throat, and left him dizzy from need. Balancing before her on both knees, taking a hip in each hand, he slowly closed in on the sheer triangle covering the prize.

“Shane…”

He took another hungry inhale. The tip of his nose skimmed the lace. “Yes?”

Those slim fingers slid down until her palm cupped the back of his head. Her thighs parted.

“Ye—”

A car alarm shattered the silence and broke the spell lust and memories had woven around them. She jerked away, shoved her skirt down, and glared at him. “That’s not part of our deal.”

He stood, intentionally taking up the space she’d tried to carve out for herself. “Don’t kid yourself, Sinclair. That’s always been part of our deal.”

Cirque: Act II

by Ashleigh Giannoccaro
Cirque
Publication Date: January 20, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

cirque act 2 cover

Without my box I can’t be me
Kidnapped by a clown close to the sea
He’s torn inside where one equals two
One I hate, the other I love true

Secrets and lies become alibis
Sivan is damaged, it’s in his eyes
Riddles unravel when you know who masters
Now Imogene’s only home is Masters

An eye playing spy held me together
When I broke, he broke, two ends of frayed tether
We’re joined by the past like twin souls in hell
Innocent angels molested, and fell

I escaped it, but need to go back.
To love the man with his face painted black.
The circus is known for its eternal magic
Our tent of freedom is simply tragic.

Once a little girl fell, then she fell for me
I’m a fool, and she’s a fool for me
There’s a clown inside us all; a purpose
But this life, it’s all just a circus.

cirque act 1 cover

A boy looked in a window, to see a naughty show
Through the pane of pain, the master clown did blow
The circus is a holy tent, the keeper of my rhyme
Where I forged my chains, creating this pantomime
Pretending to be normal, I wait until after dark
Then I paint the frown on, get a whore from the park
At the bottom of that bed was a darling in a chest
She watched with big eyes, horror hooking her from rest
She dances for the maniac, twirling on her strings
I will make her mine, sharing damaged things
I will be her riddle, she will help me grin
So why does she run away, she has to let me in
No one loves the clown, not even the midget
We’ve gone too far, she will know my secret
Love can break the hardest mask, I know this to be true
Nightmares have hearts too, I only needed you

EXCERPT

That night around eleven fifteen, as I poured myself a drink from the minibar, I heard a knock on my hotel room door. When I opened it, I found Alex on the other side. She stepped backward in the hallway and sucked in a deep breath.

 

“Sorry to bother you and Kathryn,” she said as her cheeks grew pink. “But we need to chat.”

 

“That’s fine. You’re not bothering us. Besides, she’s already asleep in the other room,” I said, and glanced over my shoulder down the length of the suite. Kathryn’s door remained closed. Good. I turned back to Alex. “And I never go to bed this early.”

 

“Well, I was thinking about something on the agenda for tomorrow, and I didn’t think it should wait until the morning.”

“No problem,” I said, taking in the sight of her. “In fact, you’re just in time for a nightcap.” I held up the mini bottle of Maker’s Mark. “What do you say to a drink while we talk it over?”

 

She hesitated, then shrugged. “All right.”

 

“You like bourbon, don’t you?”

 

“Sure do,” she said as she glided into the room, still wearing the black skirt and white oxford shirt from earlier. I shut the door behind us and focused on her round, tight ass as she walked to the couch on the far end of my suite.

 

Damn.

 

“How you do like it?” she said as she sat down. “Straight up or on the rocks?”

 

“Straight up.” I grinned, took another bottle from the minibar, handed it to her and took a seat in the burgundy armchair across from the sofa. “Bottoms up.” I raised the bottle and she tipped her back to me. She downed the alcohol in a smooth shot, and I followed her lead.

 

“Whew,” she said. “Not bad.”

 

“You seem like you have some experience with this kind of thing.”

 

She sank further into the couch. “You don’t get out of Tulane without learning how to drink.”

 

“Of course, I remember now. You told me about Tulane that night at Old Ebbit.” I paused. “I’m trying to think what I know about that school. Hmm. The students named the mascot Pecker, didn’t they?”

 

“Guilty as charged. Of course, they wouldn’t let us keep that name.” She sighed. “But Riptide the Pelican just doesn’t have the same…ring.”

EXCERPT

“Is the water cold—” Val asked before screaming when I pulled her in. She came up coughing and spluttering a grin on her gorgeous face, “Jesus, Flynn that wasn’t fair; you need to stop dunking me in pools.”

“Sure it was. You’re in now. You’d have stood there procrastinating about getting in here for a million years before you dipped your toes in the water then complained it was too cold. Am I right?” I asked sliding my arm around her and pulling her close to me.

“Oh. My. God. It’s Flynn Docherty. Remember me?” a blonde girl shrieked as she swam close to me. Valerie stiffened in my arms, and I rubbed her back slowly in reassurance.  I had no clue who the girl was. “We were in the same English Lit class at college. We met at Parker Sloan’s 4th of July party, remember?”

As soon as she said that I knew I’d fucked her. She was one of the many. Straight away I felt embarrassed for Valerie and knew that if I didn’t handle the scene correctly, she’d have my balls removed not so nicely and fed to Buster. I had no desire to shame the girl either. Glancing at Valerie, and then at the girl, I knew it was a no-brainer. She had been the one to approach me, and I knew Valerie was holding her breath because of the last time I’d inadvertently bumped into a girl we had both knew how that had ended.

“I’m sorry, I guess I don’t, I’ve probably met tens if not a hundred thousand people since then—”

“Hi, I’m Valerie, Flynn’s partner, nice to meet you,” Valerie said as she cut into the conversation.

The blonde looked blankly at Valerie then turned back to me, “So are you in town for long?” she asked, completely ignoring Val’s introduction and attempt to control the situation.

“My girl just greeted you, and you ignored her, that’s rude.”

“I wasn’t talking to her, I was talking to you, Flynn,” she said and smirked in Valerie’s direction.

Her response pissed me off and I felt Valerie’s arms slacken as her legs dropped from around my waist. She’d been trying to pull away from me, no doubt angered by the intrusion and the ignorant way the girl had dismissed her. I pulled her back tight to me and repositioned her legs, all the while staring the girl out and waiting for her to shake her head and clarify what she said in a less offensive way. When that didn’t happen, I went for her jugular vein.

“Okay, I had no wish to be rude, but since that seems to be your approach after muscling in on my private family time, I’ll answer the question you probably want to know. Were you a memorable fuck? If I fucked you, I don’t remember. I have no recollection of you whatsoever. You were one of very many girls I had back in college. I’ve no wish to hurt your feelings, but since you and I have different ideas about protecting my girl’s feelings, I’d just like to say our conversation here is done. Now if you’d excuse me, I’m spending precious time with my beautiful woman.”
