For just a few, brief days on the Pacific Crest Trail, Matt Murphy fell in love and came to understand what was really important in life – until the woman he fell in love with died.
Where that left him, Matt couldn’t know. His only recourse would be to meet the man who had first married his love and understand what that love had meant to him.
The results of which could change Matt’s life forever…
Excerpt
Matt was so hungry he didn’t consider if his phone was ready. He was ready to face the music at La Blithesome Listhe if it also meant facing breakfast.
He wasn’t inside for two minutes before he noticed people looking at him, giving those sideward glances that people give when they don’t want to be seen looking. They were probably already talking about him in the kitchen. The waitress who sat them at a table did not appear to recognize Matt and he didn’t recognize her, either. Truth be told, he didn’t recognize too many people. He wasn’t particularly good with faces.
But as he perused the menu, a face he recognized very well came strolling in his direction from the farthest end of the restaurant. Annias Listhe, Diva’s old boss and owner of La Blithesome Listhe. Still dressing like she’s a burlesque dancer, Matt thought, although the days when she could pull it off were far behind her.
When Annias flashed Matt a smile, Matt smiled back at her. After all, despite her many quirks, Annias had always been good to Diva and, by extension, to Matt as well. “Mister Diva Murphy,” Annias announced, which was so typical of her Matt barely batted an eye. “How wonderful to see you back in these four walls.”
Hardly four walls, Matt thought as he said, “I’m sorry it has been so long, Annias. I just – ”
“No. No,” Annias told him. “No need for explanation. You’ve had a difficult year, Matthew. I understand. It’s just wonderful to see you again. We miss your Diva, our Diva, so very much.”
Her graciousness left Matt feeling a little like a schmuck. He stood up so they could embrace – he did his best not to breathe in her perfume bath – and Matt offered, “She made the best scones in the world. I only hope you found someone as good.”
“Well,” Annias replied, stepping out of their embrace, “our Baxwell is no Diva but he does have his charms.”
“I’m sorry. Did you say Maxwell?”
“Baxwell,” Annias corrected.
“Bax?”
“Baxwell.”
“Baxwell,” Eric repeated from his seat, speaking as though Matt was the jerk. Little did he realize that Matt was about to say “Back sweat.”
“Exactly so,” Annias complemented. “Who is your friend, Matthew?”
“Name’s Eric,” Eric offered, his hand outstretched.
Annias took it. “Charmed,” she told him. “Now, you two boys order whatever you like and don’t worry about anything. You’re like family, Matthew. You should know that.”
“Thanks, Annias,” Matt said, and he meant it. He felt like an idiot showing up after all this time but Annias was the perfect host. After she walked away, Matt sat down at the table. “That woman has always given me the creeps,” he said to Eric, leaning forward so he could speak softly. “She’s nice enough but I don’t think she’d recognize an authentic moment if it choked on her perfume.”
“She’s okay,” Eric chided. “Besides, she did offer to pick up breakfast. Let’s see what kind of damage we can do.”
Matt lifted an eyebrow as Eric dived into the menu, waiting for the moment that he was sure would come when… Wait. There it was. Eric’s face went from pleased to perplexed to downright embarrassed.
“What is all this?” Eric asked.
“High class food,” Matt confided. “Don’t worry. I’ve got this.” He called the waitress over and said, “Can we get two coffees – just coffee – with cream and sugar. Some orange juice. A couple croissant. Some melon, whatever you have that’s in season. And a couple of danishes, if you have them?”
As the waitress walked away, Matt saw the disappointment on Eric’s face. “What?” he asked. “It’s called a continental breakfast. We’ll pick you up a McMuffin later on.”
“Okay,” Eric said. “But only if you promise.”

Fool Me Daddy by Rayanna Jamison and Allysa Hart – Release Blitz

Fool Me Daddy banner

 I fell in love with my best friend. The only problem?  She thinks I am gay!

Fool Me Daddy by Allysa Hart and Rayanna Jamison – OUT NOW!

Fool Me Daddy cover

Get it ONLY on Amazon!!
Or read for #FREE in KindleUnlimited!!!

BLURB:

Gusband: A gay friend that a woman is as close to as a husband.Eli Van Horn has been my best friend since I was in pigtails and Mary Janes, and I’ve been in love with him for almost as long.

He’s the peanut butter to my jelly, the meat balls to my spaghetti, and the whipped cream on top of my hot fudge sundae.

He’s also 100% gay.

I’m sure of it. He has better fashion sense than me, had a poster of Justin Timberlake on his wall when we were teens, and lord, can that boy shop.

The only problem, he’s never actually come out to me. That’s weird, right?

Fool Me Daddy is Book 2 in a hot new Rom-Com series about a group of friends, bonded over their love of dirty books with drool-worthy heroes, who eventually get their own hot, hilarious, happily-ever-afters.

Fool Me Daddy teaser 1

EXCERPT:

“Has he ever actually admitted to being gay?” Suzy questioned.
I shook my head. It was the same conversation we had every time Elias Van Horn came home to visit. I could almost quote it verbatim at this point. “You guys are ridiculous. All you have to do is have one conversation with the guy and you would know I’m right. But you’ve never talked to him. Most of you have never even met him. I don’t understand why y’all are so dead-set on arguing over his sexuality with me every time his name comes up.”
“It’s because you are obviously in love with him,” Anna announced.
“And because your gaydar is notoriously off,” Delia added.
“Right,” Tammy agreed. “It’s bad. It’s so bad. Remember Fred from HR? That boy was flaming like a bag of Cheetos and you still asked him out on a date.”
I blushed at the horrifying memory. “Leave Fred out of this. That has nothing to do with the situation at hand. I didn’t really know Fred, anyway. But, I know Eli almost better than I know myself. Trust me, he’s gay.”
I could already tell they weren’t anywhere close to dropping it when Staci spoke up. “But if you thought a gay man was straight, how big of a stretch is it really for you to think a straight man is gay? You could be wrong. I think you’re wrong.”

About the Authors

Allysa Hart
I am a full-time mom to a sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girl. Okay, so she is all me. I am on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over eight years. Like most couples, we have our ups and downs, but I could not imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind, most days.
I have recently rediscovered my love of words and decided to become a writer. My first story is my heart and soul, and it reaches into the depths of all that is me. I also create covers, promos, and logos for authors. I have met some amazing friends on this journey that I now happily call family. Without my family members, whether biological or chosen, I would not be half the person I am today. Their constant love and support keep me afloat.

COLE by Tory Richards – Release Blitz

Cole Tour Graphic
A New MC Romance by Amazon Bestselling Author Tory Richards
Cole cover
Series: Desert Rebels MC Series # 1
Genre: MC Romance, Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: May 1, 2019
His job is to protect his MC but he can’t resist her, she can’t refuse him, and deception will test the strength of their attraction to one another.
He can’t resist her.
She can’t refuse him.
Lies will rip them apart.
As enforcer of the Desert Rebels Cole’s job is to protect his MC. A favor for a friend has them taking in a young woman they think is trying to get away from a crazy ex. Turns out she’s lying. When the truth comes out, so does trouble to the club. Cole wants Raven, but will their insane attraction to one another be enough to overcome the deception and give them a chance at happiness?

Excerpt

Heart pounding, I panted breathlessly, “Cole! I’m-I’m not who you th-think I am!” I scraped his scalp with my nails, bowing sharply beneath his mouth. Oh, sweet Jesus, he was going to kill me with pleasure!
Breathing hard, he pulled his mouth off my nipple and looked up at me with surprising clarity in his eyes, his dark expression stamped with raw arousal. “I know exactly who you are,” he grated hoarsely. “I’ve known since I pulled you beneath me.”
What? I took a second to process what he’d said, or to at least try. I was so turned on that it felt as if I were on some life-altering drug, and I was, in a way–I was high on Cole. “We-We can’t do this,” I whispered, while at the same time asking myself why it was that we couldn’t.
His grin was pure sex. “Looks like we are.”
“But . . . you thought I was someone else,” I reminded him. “What about her?”
He released a frustrated breath. “Can we talk about this later? I’m right in the middle of something.”
I was not going to be a convenient fill-in for another woman, no matter how turned on I was. No matter how hot Cole was. “Listen, jerk, when a man makes love to me, I’d at least like to know that he knows it’s me he�s making love to.”
His body vibrated with laughter against me. “I don’t make love, baby. I fuck.”
I felt a surge of anger in response to his flippant attitude. “Well, then find someone else to fuck,” I hissed, trying to wiggle out from beneath him. Cole was a big man, and he was heavy. Bumping my hips to try to force him to move proved to be a dumb move, because all it managed to do was reveal how fucking huge and hard his cock was.
Cole grunted in response and dropped his head back onto my breasts. I began to wiggle wildly, afraid of where this was going.
Afraid of myself.
“Get off!”
“Jesus, wait a fucking minute, will you?” he growled as if he were in pain, pressing my body down to hold me still.
I stilled. “I’ll give you ten seconds.”
His mouth was against my breast, and the feel of his smile on my flesh caused a shiver to ripple through my body.

Holly
freaks out when she and her date show up at the same restaurant as her

The River Runs
The
Riverview Series, Book 1
Publisher:
Y&R Publishing
Some
call this river a taker of souls, a reaper. Sanguine is the Spanish word for
blood and God knows plenty has been spilled in its murky depths. As Tina floats
on her back, she couldn’t help but feel its more of an artery, giving life to
its limbs.
Not
everyone would agree.
Tough
as nails, Tina Foster, doesn’t have time for a relationship. She’s far too busy
running her family construction company. Tina’s take charge attitude may
intimidate some, but to others, she’s a rock, a woman with a plan. Taming a
heart this strong will take a man up for a challenge, and so far, there haven’t
been too many contenders worthy of her time.
Bo
Galloway is returning to Riverview after a rough few years. He’s home to take
care of his grandmother and prays for a chance at redemption and a fresh start.
Untrusting of most women, he doesn’t know what to think of his new boss. He
definitely didn’t expect to admire Tina Foster. Bo’s only shot at getting Tina
to notice him is to be as strong as she is.
Just
like the waters of the Sanguine, Bo and Tina must find their flow. Will the
waters sweep away their only chance at true love, or nourish a relationship as
steady as the river itself?
 
Excerpt
Four
years ago, down by the river.
Holly’s
stomach turned cartwheels as she faced Justin Meyers and held his hands.
The
minister cleared his throat and smiled. “Repeat after me. I, Holly Grace
Combs…”
“I,
Holly Grace Combs…” Thank God he said her name. She might’ve forgotten it, as
nervous as she was.
“Take
you, Justin Alexander Meyers…”
“Take
you, Justin Alexander Meyers…”
“As
my lawfully wedded husband.”
Husband.
Holy hell. Justin would be her husband; to have and to hold until death they
did part. She said the words, meant them with all her heart. Justin had been
the great love of her life since they were kids playing house together. College
had pulled them apart the last couple years, but as he repeated his vows back
to her, she knew this was the right thing to do.
The
Sanguine River flowed behind them as the preacher pronounced them man and wife
and Holly kissed her best friend since childhood in the presence of her brother
and his flavor of the week.
“Now,
y’all don’t get me wrong,” said the preacher with a wide smile that shined as
bright as the moon on the river. “I don’t mind performin’ this ceremony ‘cause
I’ve known it was comin’ since you was both runnin’ ‘round the playground at
church. But y’all might wanna tell your parents b’fore you file the actual paperwork.
I usually don’t do this without the license. But you got your witnesses present
and it’s better than you kids livin’ in sin, I guess. You’re married in God’s
eyes; that’s what counts.” He slapped Justin on the back and left with Hunter
and his girlfriend.
Holly
and Justin stayed hand-in-hand, staring at each other with matching grins, the
water flowing gently behind them. She loved his smile. She loved that special
spark in his eyes when he smiled at her. No one else saw it. Only Holly.
“We’re
married,” he whispered.
“Yeah,
seems that way.” Holly met his dark hazel eyes and bit her bottom lip.
Justin
ran his fingers over her cheek and through her hair. “I love you, Honeycomb.
Always have, always will.”
“I
love you too.” His hand cupped her cheek and she kissed his palm. “Our parents
are going to freak out.”
“I’m
not worried about it.”
She
let out a huff of air. “You never worry about anything.” Which was why she
worried about everything.
They
laughed and kissed until excitement turned into desire. Justin rented a hotel
room down the river and they didn’t come up for air until the next afternoon.
Holly
lay naked in the bed, her legs intertwined with Justin’s. “We have to get back
to reality.”
Justin
propped his head up on his elbow and frowned. “Yeah. We should tell our
parents, and our friends…and you should make sure Lance isn’t going to be an
issue.”
Chills
vanquished all the elation from the last twenty-four hours. It was time to face
her ex-boyfriend once and for all.

BLURB:
All she wanted was a quiet life…
Ria is a magnet for trouble. She’s on the run, living a secret life. She’s being blackmailed by an asshole.
And she’s pretty certain the newest Dom at Club Indulgence is a thief, a private investigator or a cop.
She’s not sure which is worse. And that is exactly why she should stay away from him. Too bad he’s an irresistible blend of geeky and alpha, gentle and stern, hot and hotter.
Yep, trouble just follows her around.He was the perfect undercover operative…
Everyone overlooked or underestimated him. This should be a simple op. Go in, find who was stealing money from Club Indulgence and leave.
Easy, right?
Well, it might have been if not for a secretive sexy little sub with way too much attitude and eyes that had seen far too much.
She roused his protective instincts, she pulled at the Dominant inside him and her past was enough to make most men run.
But she’d do well to remember not to underestimate him.
