Hot and Sinful Nights #Giveaway Hop with an #Excerpt from Reignited!


It’s never too late to reignite an old flame.

She’s the woman he’s always wanted.

He’s the man she’s always dreamed about.

Now at their ten-year high school reunion, there’s nothing stopping Harper Webb and Mason Shaw from reigniting those feelings and having each other at last. At least until the weekend ends.

They fit together in every way. But their lives are in different places. Can they make a fantasy weekend into something more?





Excerpt: ***Warning! Steamy content ahead!***

“Harper, it’s me. Please let me in so we can talk about this.”
The carpeted floors in the rooms didn’t allow him to hear her approach, but he heard the soft click of the lock as she unlatched it. When she pulled the door open, she looked past him down the hall in one direction and then the other. Seeing they were alone, she grabbed the front of his shirt and pulled him into her room.
“What’s going on?” Mason asked as she locked the door behind them.
She turned back to him. “Just making sure Alicia isn’t around.”
“About that...” Before he could continue, Harper pushed him back, and he toppled onto the bed.
“She ambushed you,” Harper said, explaining for him. “I know.”
“You do? Then why did it seem like you were furious with me?”
She stepped toward the bed, positioning her leg between his. “Because that’s what I wanted Alicia to think. She gave me this sob story about how she loved you in high school, but you were into me. She even said you cried out my name in a moment of passion.” She laughed. “I actually believed her.”
“That’s because it’s true,” Mason confessed, feeling his cheeks warm.
Harper cocked her head. “You really did that?”
He nodded, not wanting to say it aloud again. “It’s not something I’m proud of. I know now that I never should have dated her, but at the time I figured she was looking to raise her social status and I was trying to pass the time until you and Rick split up. It seemed like a fair trade.”
Harper lowered herself on top of him. “So you were thinking of me while you were...?”
He could tell she didn’t want to finish the statement, so he nodded again. “I know it’s awful, but I was a dumb kid at the time.”
She dipped her head so her mouth was mere centimeters from his. “It is awful. But it’s also the sweetest thing in a way. I had no idea your feelings for me were so strong.”
Mason placed his hands on her hips, pulling her harder against him. “You wore watermelon lip gloss freshman year but stopped using it because Rick didn’t like the taste of it.”
Her head jerked back. “How did you know that?”
“Rick’s locker was near mine. He liked to talk. I figure most of what he said was made up, nothing but stories to make him look better. But there were a few I knew were true.”
“What else did he say?” She lowered herself to her elbows, her chest pressing down on his.
Mason wasn’t about to tell her that Rick had boasted about the number of times they’d supposedly had sex each week. Or that he’d claimed he’d had bite marks on his chest and shoulders from when she’d stifle her screams in the heat of the moment. Mason had seen the guy change for gym class. He’d never had a single bite mark on him.
“You love roses, but only when lilacs aren’t in bloom. You can’t stand the smell of rain because it reminds you of going fishing with your dad when you were little and watching him put live worms on the hook. When you’re nervous, you rub your right ear lobe and fidget with your earring. You hate milk chocolate and only eat dark. You—”
Before Mason could continue, Harper’s lips descended on his. She kissed him with such passion he couldn’t think straight. They were both breathing heavily when she pulled away and looked into his eyes.
“I never knew. If I had...”
He pressed his finger to her lips. “I know.” He removed his finger and nibbled on her lower lip. She cried out, and he soothed the spot with his tongue. Her fingers lowered and gripped his sides. He wrapped his arms around her and spun them so she was lying next to him. With one hand, he lifted the hem of her shirt, trailing his fingers ever so lightly against her stomach. She shuttered under his touch and kissed him forcefully, her tongue dancing with his. Mason’s hand moved upward to cup her breast, massaging it before pinching her nipple between his forefinger and thumb. His mouth left hers and trailed down her neck. She shifted and, in one swift movement, pulled her shirt over her head and tossed it aside. Mason smiled and locked eyes with her before claiming her hard nipple with his mouth. She gripped his head, holding him in place. He teased the nipple with his tongue and teeth before switching to the other side.
Her hand reached down, rubbing against his erection, stroking the length of it. He unbuttoned her jeans and helped her shimmy out of them, all the while still kissing her chest. His hand ran down her smooth stomach and settled between her legs. Her pelvis arched toward him as if begging him to keep going. He responded by dipping a finger inside her. Slowly. She moaned and pushed against his hand, deepening the penetration. He trailed his tongue between her breasts and up her neck while his finger moved in and out of her.
She undid his pants and used her hands and then her feet to slip them off him. Mason found it incredibly sexy how she managed to pull off the maneuver while still grinding her hips against his hand movements. He kissed her, sweeping his tongue on hers.
He waited until she was on the brink before he removed his hand and positioned himself on top of her. She gripped his sides and pressed herself against him, begging him to finish what he’d started.

You can find Reignited in the Hot & Sinful Nights boxed set, available for preorder for only $.99!

Joint Venture

Hot and Sinful Graphic AA6
From the box set, we're featuring today: JOINT VENTURE By: Kristen Luciani

About Joint Venture....
Notorious celebrity playboy A.J. Morgan has more emotional baggage than notches on his well-used bedpost, but three-ways with fake-boobed blondes and gallons of whiskey ease the pain. Live to indulge, indulge to fill the voids. Those are his rules, until he meets cunning club singer Lisa Embry, whose heart is surrounded by more barbed wire than a high-security prison. Rules? What rules? One lust-filled romp turns A.J. into an addict in need of his next fix and he’ll pay any price for another hit. Until he finds out Lisa has her own rules, ones that can never be broken.

A Taste of Joint Venture....
She smoothed the front of her skirt and twisted in a slow circle. Jessica would be back any second, ready to gnaw off her arm if she took a minute longer to pay for the shoes.

“Excuse me, would you like—”

Startled, she pitched forward. “Ow! What the hell--?” Something hard smacked into her bare shoulder, making her stumble in the sky-high heels. A loud clanging sound followed by shattering glass greeted her as she spun into the salesgirl who had been carrying a platter of champagne flutes, a platter that was now sitting in a large puddle of liquid and smashed crystal. Cold liquid dripped down her arms, pooling on the floor in front of her brand-new and not-yet-paid-for suede shoes. One of the things she loved best about this place was the very thing that could make her cry in that instant.

With a gasp, Lisa quickly tiptoed away from the champagne to avoid collateral damage, but one of the fabric soles didn’t cooperate. Her leg slid out, arms flailing as she skidded to gain the slightest bit of traction. Argh! Can’t fall, can’t ruin the suede!

After one final spin, she stumbled, landing cleanly in the muscular arms of a delectable specimen of a man who had eyes resembling swirls of melted brown chocolate with flecks of gold dancing around in the depths.

Oh.My.God.

Her mouth dropped open, mind paralyzed. Words eluded her… not that there were enough expletives on earth to satisfactorily convey her disgust. But those eyes sent her floating off into the abyss with no recollection of how she’d ended up there in the first place and no immediate desire to return.

Telling him to go fuck himself would be so gratifying, if only her lips would cooperate. Her skin tingled under the pads of his fingertips. Ugh, wasn’t it just like her body to completely betray her like that?

“If you’re about to have another heart attack, I’m ready and willing to stop it again.”
Lisa shook her head, opening her mouth but still no words emerged. Her pulse raced like a thoroughbred; that sparkling white smile had rendered her mute, until… “In your dreams,” she finally squeaked.

Really? Her mouth decides to kick it into gear and that’s what comes out?

Egomaniacal Asswad’s grin deepened, that damned dimple making her heart quake. A heady scent swirled in the air. If he hadn’t had such a tight grip on her, she’d have ended up on her ass since her limbs refused to operate under his intoxicating spell. Her fingers itched to crawl through his thick dark hair despite the animosity bubbling in her veins.

“Well, if this were a dream, we’d be on that very cushy couch right about now.”

Argh! He may have the face of a Greek god, but damn, he was arrogant as all hell. “You are such a jackass. I wouldn’t go to the hospital with you if I was wandering around barefoot on hot coals, bleeding out my eyes, and you were the only person on earth with a car.” But despite the caustic tone, the fluttering in her belly persisted. What was that all about? It was new, an unfamiliar sensation, one she’d never experienced.

“You’re not exactly running away.”

“I can’t run in heels this high, but trust me, I’d love nothing more than to put as much distance between us as humanly possible.” She settled her stiletto-clad foot on the still-slippery tile and lifted herself out of his firm grasp. Who the hell did he think he was? She’d rather her ass land in that bubbly puddle than remain in his sleazy clutches a second longer.

“That’s too bad, although the view from behind would be worth it.”

She furrowed her brow, steam practically blasting from her ears as she cocked her head in mock confusion. “Sorry? I didn’t quite get that. But then again, I don’t speak scumbag.” With a swing of her hips, she nearly collided with a brunette saleswoman rushing toward Tall, Dark and Delicious-But-Still-A-Total-Dickhead. Smooth, real smooth.

The woman handed him a large shopping bag and flashed a bright smile. “Here they are! Please give Kayla my best.”


Lisa stifled a snort as she hurried back to the register. Kayla. What a total sleaze, propositioning her while he was picking up shoes for another woman. She spotted Jessica glowering at her. “Don’t be mad, Jessie. I had a little altercation with some champagne glasses, but I’m ready to go.” Cocky bastard didn’t even warrant a mention. She grabbed the empty shoebox and handed it to the salesgirl along with her credit card. Her gaze wandered toward the front of the boutique. Empty, save for the cleaning guy who was mopping up the alcohol-soaked mess. So why the heck was her heart still pounding like a block of cement in a dryer?

AUTHOR BIO:
Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didn’t stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stine’s Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative fiction. Kelly’s also a sucker for first love, which is why she writes romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she’s not writing, Kelly works as an editor, and also as Mom, which she believes is a job title that deserves to be capitalized.

Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library Cover Reveal!

I'm so excited to share this cover with you because my daughter and I loved the first book in this series and can't wait to read this one. Check out Fairday Morrow and the Talking Library!

Eleven-year-old Fairday Morrow had no clue that moving from Manhattan to the small town of Ashpot, Connecticut, would lead to an unsolved mystery. Her parents’ dream of renovating a crumbling Victorian, called the Begonia House, into a bed and breakfast had seemed like treachery at the time. But Fairday found out that her new house kept secrets, and once inside its twisted front gates, anything was possible.

When mysterious notes start showing up warning that a librarian is in trouble and a bookworm is eating words, Fairday thinks the Begonia House has more skeletons in its closets. She notices a passage in her favorite book has been changed, and she’s certain something is dreadfully wrong. What happens to stories when their words get eaten?

The Detective Mystery Squad is ready to investigate! Fairday, Lizzy, and Marcus take off on a sticky trail and tumble into Nowhere. Like Alice in Wonderland, Fairday finds herself in a world where nothing makes sense and the lines of reality are blurred.

The three sleuths discover amazing things about themselves as they unravel more secrets within the walls of the Begonia House. Follow along with Fairday and friends as they open the next case in the DMS files to unlock the mystery of the Talking Library.

~ ONE ~
Strange Notes

Fairday Morrow woke to a loud crack of thunder. As she bolted upright in bed, her gray eyes flew open. Rain pelted against the window. Electricity charged the air. Lightning flashed, and she saw the old willow tree in her backyard lurching wildly. A whip-like branch smashed the glass and the storm raged into her room. BOOM! The sky lit up. The wind blew in like a tornado, tossing wet leaves and sticks around. Fairday shrieked and ducked under the covers.
“Fairday! Are you okay?” her dad shouted from the hallway.
Auntie Em, the family pug, was barking her head off.
“Yeah, I’m alright,” Fairday answered in a shaky voice. She peeked out from the blankets as a burst of light split the dark. For an instant, glass shards twinkled like stars across the tattered lion-and-unicorn carpet; the heavy drapes flapped, twisting in the wind. On the next lightning strike, Fairday saw a paper blow in through the broken window. But the second she glimpsed it, thunder boomed, the house shook, and everything blacked out.
