#NewRelease ~ The White House Wedding By Seelie Kay ~ @SeelieKay

The White House Wedding 
By Seelie Kay

About The White House Wedding: 

When politics interferes with love, can love survive?

Getting married isn’t easy when your father’s the President of the United States! After reluctantly agreeing to a White House wedding, Sarah Lee Pearson, the president’s daughter, finds herself swept into a political maelstrom of unimagined proportions.

The White House staff and the first lady see the wedding as a political event, a way to sweep the president into his next term. Congress is complaining about the collateral costs. The media is delightfully rehashing every aspect of Sarah’s life, even those events that have nothing to do with the impending marriage. And the American public? Visions of an American royal wedding have swept them into a frenzy and vendors take advantage, making a quick buck off of everything from limited edition t-shirts to commemorative teacups.

Sarah and her fiancé, Sam, fight hard to ignore the craziness, but after learning a bounty has been put on their heads by an anti-government militia group, they have to decide whether a White House wedding is indeed worth it. And given all the hurtful controversy, perhaps a better solution is to not get married at all.

The White House Wedding Excerpt: 

“How does my father feel about this?” Sarah asked.

“Your father wants you to do what makes you happy.”

Jamisen Powell entered his Chief of Staff’s office and nodded coldly at Jeremiah. He added, “He would never ask you to do otherwise.”

Sarah smiled and rose to kiss her father on the cheek. “Thanks, Dad. I knew you wouldn’t ask me to be a political stool pigeon.”

Jamie Powell chuckled. “No. That job apparently falls to staff.” He smiled at Sarah. “Look, hopefully, you only get married once. Make a memory that will mean the most to you and Sam. Nothing else matters.” He shook his head, “Maybe Jeremiah will get lucky and your sister, Melissa, will hook some poor sucker before the next election. She and her mother would be overjoyed planning a White House wedding.”

Jeremiah scowled. “I am only thinking about your re-election, Mr. President. Your first term has been a bit rocky. You need a solidifying factor, something that will grab the hearts and minds of the American public and provide a clear path into the next term. Your story, a daughter lost and found after twenty-five years, especially a daughter who just happens to be a stellar human being and a successful international law attorney, won their hearts in the first election.

“Walking that same daughter down the aisle, something you had never dreamed was possible? The ratings alone will rival a royal wedding. No offense, but Melissa’s marriage—if it ever happens—could never have the same impact. People don’t view her in the same light as Sarah. Melissa is a flighty socialite. Her deep-seated sense of entitlement offends. The ratings for her wedding would be nonexistent. But Sarah? She’s the golden child. The American public loves her.”

The president’s sapphire blue eyes, which mirrored Sarah’s, flashed with annoyance. “Be that as it may, I am not about to force either of my daughters into something they don’t want. Sarah has declined your request, and as far as I am concerned, that’s the end of it. You will have to find another solidifying factor, Jer. Surely I have done something that’s re-election worthy!”

Excerpt The Burn:

His fingers slid over her hips and pulled her flush against his own body. The music thumped in his ears blocking out everything else but her. In sync they found each other and moved together. Seduction by an angel felt perfect and right. His hand slid around the nape of her neck. Her hair was damp underneath with sweet sweat. She smelled delicious. One of her legs slid in between his as she tried to get closer. The hand he placed on her hip slid around to the exposed skin of her
lower back. His fingers rubbed against the soft butter of her skin. Her hands slid up the back of his thighs, over his ass, and up his back to cup his shoulders. Her breasts pressed into his chest. Her nipples strained against her blouse. He closed his eyes on a tortuous groan.

The music slowed into a sultry, Latin rhythm. A soprano voice filled the club with a song about desire and the deep love shared between two souls. With their bodies harmonized with one another, they danced. Time seemed to pause for one brief moment. Leon held her tight against his chest and leaned over to accommodate her smaller frame. His hips cradled hers. She melted into his body as he led her in seductive control. An electrical current began to spark everywhere they
touched. His body became a living conduit for her energy as it thrust against his own.

Thrill Me
(Wanna Be Bad – Contemporary Menage - MFM)
by Tina Donahue

About Thrill Me: 

Longing to be bad…

For too many months, Shelby’s craved bad boys Ben and Dominic, cousins and celebrated chefs at the opulent Caribbean resort where she works. Their heated gazes prove they hunger for her as much as she does for them, but they’ve yet to make a move on her.

That won’t do. Yearning for their potent masculinity, killer smiles, and effortless charm, she sets into motion a decadent plan to be with them … at least for a little while. Her ideas include nude photos, a locale where anything goes 24/7, plus BDSM and other kink.

Fun-loving Dominic’s fully onboard. He’s had his eye on Shelby from the start. Ben has too, but he’s reluctant to mix business with pleasure. Since a previous work relationship screwed him big time, he doesn’t want to repeat the experience and won’t … as long as he keeps this strictly about sex, no strings or expectations.

Yeah, right. In an erotic journey that will surprise this threesome, all bets are off, resistance impossible, surrender assured.

Excerpt from Thrill Me:

Having nabbed their attention, albeit not on the subject she planned to discuss, she got to the point. “I’m guessing you’ve heard about the new island attraction Jon has planned?”

Dominic flashed a grin sexy enough to melt a celibate’s iron will.

Her heart caught and tumbled.

He put his water down. “An ‘anything goes’ island is an epic idea. Why make the guests wait for three or four weeks throughout the year when they can get it on ‘round the clock?”

Jon’s idea exactly. A year ago, he’d purchased the island next to this one for his newest project. Once publicity was ready and the various activities tested, the venture would launch.

Ben gave her a questioning look. “Did you want us to come up with something unique for the stuff that goes on there?”

Dominic bumped his shoulder. “For the kink, we can devise entrees and pastries to smear over naked bods for everyone to eat or lick off.” He spoke to her. “Right?”

If they did so to her, she’d have no complaints. However, that wasn’t what she had in mind. “Although we’d love to have you guys supply refreshments for the participating guests, that’s not why you’re here. The island isn’t ready to open yet. There are still publicity shots to take.”

Dominic’s smile wilted beneath confusion. Ben didn’t look as if he were following either.

Just say it. “We want something better than this for the brochures.” She lifted one showing Dom’s Den, the BDSM chamber here.

The pictures showed three performers in the exotic shows—specifically two males and one female—getting it on at the Saint Andrew’s Cross. Lighting accentuated the whips, crops, leather outfits, and perspiration on all three.

Dominic stared. Ben’s eyebrows inched up.

She tapped the brochure. “This is where you come in.”

Their gazes jumped to her.

“Not in Dom’s Den.” She put the piece face down on the table. “But on the island. For publicity shots. You’re both young and good-looking. The type of men who belong in an ‘anything goes’ scenario. The initial publicity shots will be with you guys wearing trunks or board shorts. Possibly both. We’ll see how it goes.” Her gaze fell to their groins. She dragged it back up. “I’ll be wearing a swimsuit or bikini, until we do shots for the European markets.” She clasped her hands to keep them from shaking. “Nudity doesn’t bother people overseas like it does those in the States. So those photos will be without suits. However, everything will be in silhouette or strategically placed lighting, our faces in shadows or blurred or whatever Chad comes up with.”

She snatched a breath. The extra air didn’t stop the room from twirling around her. “He’s the resident photographer. Once the photos are through, there’s a three-day stay on the island to do market research. Jon’s a stickler for wanting to know what will happen before opening any event to the public. He’s going to invite every staff member who wants to participate in the fun to do so.”

Ben didn’t seem to be breathing any longer.

Flushed, Dominic rocked on his cushion, his eyes bright.

She wished they’d say something. Since they didn’t, she had to. “For the three-day thing, I’ll be your guide. Meaning, I’ll be hooking up with both of you—together—at the same time—a threesome to try every activity, fetish, kink, and whatever else the island offers.”

#Review ~ Christmas on Mistletoe Lane By Annie Rains ~ @annierainsbooks @ReadForeverPub @GrandCentralPub

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane: Includes a bonus short story (Sweetwater Springs Book 1) by [Rains, Annie]My Review:

I LOVE Christmas stories! I am devouring just as many as I can and there are some great ones this year. Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains is one of those fabulous stories that I enjoyed so much. This is the first book I have had to the chance to read by Annie Rains but I certainly will not be my last. 

Kaitlyn Russo is in desperate need of a new town and a new start. She's a very talented interior designer and maybe the B&B that her grandmother left her is just the place to put those talents to work. She has to convince her co-owner that he needs to stick around and help her gets things started. It's also part of her Grandmother's will that they work together. 

Mitch Hargrove left his hometown after a tragedy when he was young. He's returned home to discover he's been left part ownership in the B&B. He wants nothing but to get out of town and get started on his new job. With a little bit of change in his upcoming plans and some encouragement from Kaitlyn, he agrees to stick around and help with the B&B. He also takes on a temporary job to help out his friend in the police department. 

I really enjoyed watching these two work together and get to know each other better. The more time they spend together the more their attraction for each other grows and feelings start to develop. Neither one is looking for love and Mitch sure isn't looking to stick around his hometown. There is a lot that these two are going to have to overcome if they are possibly going to find a happily ever after together. There is something from Mitch's past that he has to find a way to handle.  

I loved Kaitlyn's ideas for designing the B&B and the theme that she comes up with for each of the guest rooms. Each of the guests that arrive to stay in the newly re-designed rooms are great and certainly add to the storyline. I love small town romance stories because the town can play such a great role in the storyline. I enjoyed meeting the other citizens around town and I can't wait to see what might be next in this new series. I know I will certainly be on the look out for more books by Annie Rains. 

I was given the opportunity to read this fabulous Christmas story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane Blurb:

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane: Includes a bonus short story (Sweetwater Springs Book 1) by [Rains, Annie]
This USA Today bestselling author invites you to the delightful small town of Sweetwater Springs where the magic of Christmas brings to strangers together in this "story you won't forget" (RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author).

Christmas is coming to the North Carolina mountains, and the air is fresh and crisp and filled with promise. After the devastating loss of her job in the big city, the small town of Sweetwater Springs feels like heaven to Kaitlyn Russo. She's inherited her grandparents' charming (if a little rundown) bed and breakfast, and it's just the new lease on life she needs. Only "heaven" comes with a catch-and a handsome and completely infuriating one at that. 

After what he hopes will be a quick trip, Mitch Hargrove wants nothing more than to put his hometown in the rearview mirror. But his plans get derailed when he learns he's now half-owner of the Sweetwater B&B. The fact that he's given only two months to make the inn a success is a huge problem, but it's his pretty-and incredibly headstrong-partner who's the real challenge. With the holiday fast approaching and a grand re-opening looming, will Mitch keep running from the ghosts of Christmas past . . . or will he realize the true gift he's been given?

#Review ~ Christmas Angels by Nancy Naigle ~ @nancynaigle @SMPRomance

My Review of Christmas Angels:

I love Christmas stories and I just can't get enough small-town romance stories. When you combine these two themes together I must admit I am in my absolute glory! Christmas Angles by Nancy Naigle is one of those books that is just a perfect fit for me. I must admit I don't believe I have read a book by Ms.Naigle before but after getting a taste of her work I know I will be on the lookout for more. 

Liz Westmoreland is a brilliant creative lady that has been dreaming of buying a B&B since her Grandparents sold the B&B where she loved spending time in her childhood. This lady has her life put together and isn't known for throwing caution to the wind. I have to say I loved her courage and her excitement when she won the auction for the building that used to be her GrandParents B&B. She hasn't seen it for years but its been her dream for so long. I admired her for jumping for her dream without knowing much at all, just the memories of what used to be. 

Matt Hardy is one of the very first people that Liz meets when she gets to Antler Creek. Little does she know that Matt is partly the answer to her prayers. This guy is truly one of the good guys. He's smart, creative, sweet, and knows just how to get things done. Did I mention he is also quite handsome and Liz is captivated not only by his know-how to get the job on the B&B started but also his incredible looks? 

There is an instant spark between these two that starts out as a great friendship. They work really well together and get to know each other while fixing, renovating, and discovering hidden treasures with the B&B and the property too. The more time they spend together the more attraction and admiration grows between them. I loved watching this relationship grow and develope into so much more. 

There are a lot of unpleasant discoveries along the way and a few incidents that have Liz questioning if she has made the right decision or if she should cut her loses. I loved that so many of the people from town pitch in to either assist with the cleanup, getting things done with the cabins so that Liz can live on the property, and when they all came together for a big surprise for Liz that means so very very much to her. That is truly what I love about small towns. The citizens always seem to know just what needs to be down and are more than happy to help out a fellow neighbor or in case a business that was truly loved by the community and they are all hoping will once again be running soon. 

This is one of those fabulous stories that is written so well you can truly feel all the emotions, the fears of the unknown, the wonder if this is going to work out, the cheers when things are going well, the sweet romance between Liz and Matt, the kindness of the town coming together to make Liz feel welcome, and most of all that wonderful Christmas spirit. There just isn't anything else like the spirit of Christmas to make my heart fill with love and joy. 

As I mentioned at the beginning this is the first time I have had the pleasure of reading a book by Nancy Naigle but it will certainly not be my last. 

If you love sweet Christmas Romance stories as much as I do then you really need to grab this one. I think you will enjoy it. I know I certainly did. 

I was given the opportunity to read this fantabulous story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you. 

About Christmas Angels:

A heartwarming Christmas story filled with the magic and miracles of the holiday season by USA Today Bestselling author, Nancy Naigle.

Growing up, Liz Westmoreland dreamed of taking over her grandparents inn located in the small mountain town of Antler Creek only for it to be sold before she ever got the chance. While browsing the internet, she stumbles upon a listing for what looks to be the picturesque inn and it’s set to go to auction. Liz places a bid, and by a miracle, wins the auction. But when she gets there she finds the property in significant disrepair.

When Matt Hardy narrowly lost the inn and property that butted his land, he just hoped it wasn't another city slicker coming to make matters worse after the previous owners gutted the place for an art gallery. But the minute he recognized the sweet, freckle-faced girl from his childhood and heard her plans to reopen the inn, he jumps at the chance to help his childhood crush restore a place where he made so many fond memories.

While working on repairs, Liz and Matt discover her grandmother’s collection of angels in one of the cabins. When the angels start mysteriously showing up all over the inn, she begins to look at them as reassurance—that restoring the inn is what she's meant to do. But when an accident leaves Liz feeling like she made a mistake, will Matt—and the residents of Antler Creek—be able to show Liz that she's found a home? And possibly true love as well?

Excerpt from One Woman Only:

"May I have this dance?"

Kelly turned at the sound of Jonah's voice behind her. Dinner had ended. All three of the boys had given best man speeches and Eve had even given a very creditable matron of honor speech, considering she had only known Marilyn and Caleb a short time. Lots of toasts had been raised and finally the live band had struck up the music. Caleb led his bride onto the floor for a foxtrot—a dance more than half of the guests had no idea how to do, including her.

Facing Jonah she sighed inwardly at how scrumptious he looked. Sure, his face was pretty much displayed on his brothers' heads, too, but there was something different about Jonah. His nose was just a little crooked from when Bobby Hendricks had broken it in ninth grade and his eyes held an especially bright sparkle when he smiled. Maybe… Well, she didn't know what caused the difference between Jonah and his brothers. Whatever it was, she had never been fooled by the so-called identical nature of the identical triplets. She'd wanted to be his girl since elementary school. Thought she would be in high school. And then she’d forced every last thought of him from her mind from senior year on.

Until now.

"I don't know how to foxtrot."

He shrugged. "Who does except those over fifty?" He glanced at his folks, still alone on the dancefloor, although a few couples were wandering out to join them now. "We can pretend."

She mentally compared standing on the sidelines alone now that Mama Rio left the party, or being held in Jonah's arms. Smiling, Kelly held out her hands. "Just don't step on my toes, Jonah Goodman, or there'll be hell to pay."

"Yes, ma'am." Together they walked onto the dancefloor. He took her right hand in his left and placed his right hand on her waist. Fortunately for them, the music changed to a slow tempo. Kelly laid her head on Jonah's shoulder, and he tugged her closer as they swayed to the music.

"This is nice," he murmured.

"Yes it is," she replied. So very nice. He smelled good. Beneath the light citrus fragrance of his aftershave was a slight whiff of pure man with maybe a twinge of motor oil or something so Jonah it brought tears to her eyes.

He rubbed a path up to her shoulder blades and gave a squeeze. "You fit me perfectly, Kelly."

"I do?"

"You sure do. I think our hearts can feel each other beat."

Kelly chuckled. "Smooth talker. Face to face like this our hearts are on opposite sides."

"Hey! I'm trying to be romantic here."

She sighed. "Keep on. It's appreciated."

"You smell…good."

She felt his smile. Raising her head she gave him a mock glare. "Watch it with those pregnant pauses, buster."

He used his hand to press her head back to his shoulder. "You do smell good, though. This isn't the same perfume you wore in high school. That was—"

"Lilac," they said at the same time. Once more she raised her head to look at him. "How did you remember that?"

"I remember much more than you might think." He turned her and moved her closer to the door onto the patio. "Each spring when lilacs are in bloom memories come flooding back. Does that surprise you?"

"More like shocks me," she said, grinning. And then she laid her head on his shoulder once more, finding she liked it more and more there in his arms. She stepped slightly closer and his arm tightened about her.

"Well, after a while I thought lilac seemed too girlish. I like the vintage scents, so in college I wore Wind Song. Then Shalimar was the scent Brad liked me to wear." She felt Jonah stiffen when she mentioned her ex, and really she didn't blame him. "But when I grew up enough finally to take charge of my own life, I started wearing Chanel No 5. A complex fragrance for what I hope is a complex woman."

"It suits you. Complex and beautiful." He kissed her temple. "Want to step outside for a minute?"

"Sure. It is a little warm in here."

On the patio, they could hear the sounds of the people from the television networks packing up equipment, chatting and laughing. Stars shone brightly in the clear night sky. Wood smoke from someone's fireplace wafted through the air and static electricity fairly crackled in the crispness of the autumn air.

"This is my favorite time of year," Kelly said. "The heat of summer is gone and winter nights curled up with a hot drink and blazing fire are ahead."

"Not me. I'm a summer boy all the way."

"A hothead you mean?" she teased.

"Oh, I'm hot all right." He waggled his brows at her. Kelly laughed.

"I do seem to remember that about you."

"You used to be pretty hot yourself. Still are." He leaned in. His eyes flicked down to her lips. Kelly sucked in a breath. She should stop him, she really should.
