Genre: Romance

Crash and Burn is a novella in the Crashing Into Love book bundle.

Crash and Burn by Melissa Keir

Can Rob and Keira’s second honeymoon lead to romance, or will it crash and burn?

On the verge of a divorce, Rob and Keira Matthews book a second honeymoon at the urging of their counselor. Unable to conceive, they’ve pushed each other away in an effort to protect their hearts. Will a romantic holiday be the ticket to love or a plane crash in disaster?

SORM excerpt

Once again alone with her thoughts, she turned toward her husband. They’d been married for seven years, and his looks still caused her stomach to flutter. I love running my fingers over his buzz cut. And his rough beard left sexy marks on my neck when we made love…not that it’s happened in a while. A part of the reason we’re on this trip is because of our lack of sex, tenderness. Of course, he’d have to be home in order to touch me.
Keira crossed her legs tighter as she glanced around the cabin. Her gaze fell to the cowboy two seats in front of her and across the aisle. That rancher is hot. His jeans really showed off his best assets when he walked back to the bathroom a while ago. His blue-striped shirt hugged his shoulders and guns. Those arms would hold a girl down or up and down all the while he loved on her. I bet if he and I were married, there’d be no need for counseling. She imagined running her fingers over his shoulders and down his arms. She uncrossed her legs and ran her hands down her jeans, shifting them.

Opening the water, Keira poured herself some. She picked up the glass and held it to her face, trying to cool her flushed skin, then drank. Emptying it, she set the glass back on the tray then poured a little water into the cup. She unzipped the top of her dog’s carrier and waved the water in front of Gris’s face. “Here, baby, you can have a little. Not too much. There’s no fire hydrants on the plane.”

As she watched her fur-baby drinking, her stomach clenched. What if this is the only baby I ever have? She ran her fingers over the teacup poodle’s fuzzed head.

SORM About the Author

For my wedding in Vegas, my books and computer came with me but there wasn’t enough room for my wedding shoes. It’s all about priorities! As an avid reader, I was probably born with a book in hand. Luckily my mom was also an avid reader, so it was easy to “borrow” her books when my books were finished.

I was reading from an early age about dashing men on horseback riding to the rescue of strong willed and capable women who didn’t really need rescuing. I came to expect that women in fairy tales should have fought their own battles. When I was older, I found Margaret Atwood and realized that women could re-tell history in their own way and I experimented with changing those basic fairy tales.

Fortunately for me, my husband allows me the opportunity to be myself (spend my salary on books) and still takes care of the really important things for me like killing spiders and opening jars. As an elementary teacher, teaching children about the many worlds inside of books is a gift that I’m lucky enough to do for a living. Teaching the next generation to love reading is a lot of fun! Reading the right book can make a new world come alive!

Currently living in the suburbs of Ann Arbor, Michigan with my darling husband, way-too-grown-up children and spoiled dogs, I enjoy getting away through a book to escape the harsh winters or summer road construction.

Caleb Larson has spent the past few years coming to terms with the tragic deaths of his parents and struggling with the guilt of not being able to prevent it. His gift of premonitions should have allowed him to see their future. After Aurora returns to town, whenever he’s in her presence, he can sense that they have a deep connection of some type.

A Hint of Heaven by Nola Cross
Firefighter Jake Manley is a no-nonsense kind of guy. So when his little sister goes to see pet psychic Carrie Westfield, he lets the beautiful medium know he’s got a watchful eye on her. But somehow she does seem to know more than she should, including painful secrets from his past. When the helpful spirit of his boyhood dog shows up, things get even stranger, making him question everything he thought was true. Can Jake accept that life doesn’t end with death and let go of the guilt he’s carried all these years? More importantly, can he let Carrie Westfield into his heart?
Cupid and Cupcakes by Jacquie Underdown
In a snowy, sleepy town is a quaint cupcake shop. People travel from miles away to visit this sugar-scented store because they think it’s magical. They’re not entirely wrong. But it isn’t the shop, or the cupcakes it sells, that’s magical…it’s the owner.
Penny loves her little store, but people don’t visit Cupid and Cupcakes solely for her cakes. They have an ulterior motive—they’re seeking love. Penny is a matchmaker, a modern-day cupid, and she’s great at it. Never wrong. Unfortunately, Penny’s gift doesn’t work where her own love life is concerned. That is until Jonathon reappears in her life. He’s her best friend’s brother, utterly wrong for her, and completely off-limits. Or is he?
Psychic Set-Up by Lacey Wolfe
During a drunken night of self-wallowing over his failed love life, Parker Evans wanders into Psychic Set-Up to see what a matchmaking psychic can do for him. But once he meets the luscious psychic he’s not interested in anyone else.
Willow Webb is an aura reader who plays matchmaker for a living. While she has tremendous success matching up others, her own love life is nonexistent. Men aren’t able to handle being involved with a woman who can read their every emotion. But she finds herself drawn to her handsome new client. When it comes time to match him up, will she do her job or keep him for herself?
Something in the Water by Lisa Knight
Kindergarten teacher Jill O’Halloran does her best to disregard the visions she sees in pools of still water, having learned from a young age that it wasn’t something that happened to normal people. But when images of Darcy Albright in the throes of passion keep appearing, they prove too difficult to ignore. Jill can’t understand why she’s so drawn to Darcy. Sure he’s gorgeous, but she doesn’t do relationships.
When Darcy’s ex-wife drops a bombshell, Jill discovers that he’s all too familiar with futuristic visions. But is the prospect of learning more about the gift she’s denied for so long worth the risk of falling for him?
Indigo Stars by Stephanie Beck
Indigo’s ability to create light with her mind was always a fun parlor trick, but since her cancer diagnosis, the parlor has closed for business. On the brink of major health failure, she can’t help but wonder when her good luck ran out.
Dr. Lee Russell believes in healing by any means necessary. He uses his psychic powers in special cases when modern medicine just can’t help. Indigo’s case is special. She’s like him, yet she wastes her gift creating stars. He heals her, but doesn’t expect much, not until he gets sick himself and only Indy’s touch can ease his pain. He’s never seen himself as anything more than a healer, but to save his own life, Lee will have to mentor Indigo to reach beyond the stars and use her gift in ways she never imagined.
Taming Fury by Ellen Cummins
Holly is a mind-moving Fury who electrifies all human flesh she touches. Even her own family has sent her packing. She moves things with her mind, manipulating fire with the flick of her finger, but she burns for the one thing that has never been an option for her—love.
When she catches sight of the handsome man helping her new neighbor move in she longs to take a chance and introduce herself…to pretend to be normal just once. It could easily end in disaster, but surprisingly, when she shakes his hand, no mind-blowing electrocution follows, and she begins to hope. But it turns out that her touch has affected Jacob in a way she never imagined, and it will change his life forever.

Free To Trust by C.W. Nightly

July 8, 2015 Uncategorized 0



Genre: Erotic Romance


Some pain is felt on the surface others are felt on the soul. Kate knows the sting of deception all too well. Though she bears no physical scars-her ability to trust has been shattered. When her work has her spending time with New York’s most notorious bachelor she finds herself fighting her attraction- that is until he stops fighting fair. But Cole’s high flying lifestyle has made him some powerful enemies. Enemies that want to extract revenge on the irreverent playboy where it hurts the most. Will Kate find the pleasure that eluded her until now only to have it ripped away? Or will she face her past and allow herself the chance to be Free To Trust?

SORM excerpt

“Cole! We can’t just do this here,” she complained.

He scooped her into his arms and carried her over to the curved wall below the staircase and set her back on her feet. Grabbing her wrists that still clung to the lapels of her robe, he raised them above her head. With the belt from her robe, he quickly bound her wrists to the railing and stepped back. Her robe hung open, framing her body for him as she squirmed against the silk binding her wrists.

“Shh, Angel. If you want me to stop all you have to do is say so, and I will, but believe me, it will be your loss.” She stopped fighting.

His finger traced her skin, following the line of the robe from her collarbone, tracing her curves. “There is only one rule to sex after consenting adults, Angel. It should be good.” The rest is open for constant renegotiation. The where, when, and how is up to us. Here and now sounds good to me.” Finger-combing her hair first, he then fisted his hand at her nape, tilting her mouth up to meet his and searching her eyes before running the tip of his tongue over her lips. “What do you say, Angel. Do you want to argue?” he whispered.

“No,” she breathed. Emphatically shaking her head, she stretched herself upwards towards his lips that he held just out of reach.His hands burrowed inside the thin garment seizing her rounded ass and licking the sensitive spot at the base of her throat. Rewarded by her guttural moan he redoubled his efforts, licking a trail down to her straining nipples and savoring each one in turn.

Saved by the Wolf by Marie Mason

June 17, 2015 Uncategorized 0

SOR Saved by the Wolf VBT BannerGenre: Paranormal 

Logan McCall had always wanted to be a family man—in spite of—his playboy reputation. Find his mate, have a few pups and settle down into a long, loving relationship sounded good, real good to him.

During a storm that rocked Chicago for three days, Logan found fate had a wicked sense of humor when it sent nurse Katie Wilson tumbling into his life. She was here for a weekend of loving with a man alright, just not with Logan.

How can he convince a woman that his reputation as Chicago’s hottest bachelor is all smoke and mirrors and that what he truly longs for is a mate and a family he can love and cherish.

Driving along a snow covered highway in the middle of a blizzard, Katie swore off men. It was a man who had put her in this dangerous situation. Well, a man and her stubborn pride.  She’d been unwilling to waste the romantic getaway that had already been paid for at a secluded mountain cabin just outside the city. So she decided to enjoy the weekend all by herself—if you didn’t count the adult toys she had packed in her suitcase and the multiple pints of ice cream she planned to buy on her way out of the city.

The last thing she’d been expecting on her binge-eating, binge-crying weekend was being Saved by the Wolf.

SORM excerpt

For an instant, her hands fluttered helplessly as she tried to figure out where to touch him. Then she

remembered. She could touch him anywhere. He was hard as a rock—all over. She’d felt the proof of that not moments before. Katie’s hands explored his body, the corded muscles of his shoulders, the light mat of curling hair on his chest and the taut planes of his abdomen. He truly had a spectacular physique.

Powerful arms roped with muscles, layers of strength making his chest and shoulders wider than any

other man she’d ever been around.

He was strong and powerful. And hers? Somehow it just felt right to think that. Like the growl of a wolf she’d heard in her head last night, the image of one flashed through mind and she had no doubt she was seeing Logan in his animal form.

Autumn Leaves by Barbara Winkes

May 23, 2015 Uncategorized 1

SOR Autumn Leaves VBT Banner (1)Genre: F/F Romance

With one revelation, her world will shift forever.

Rebecca has everything she ever dreamed of in life: a family, a beautiful home and good friends. When Callie moves into the house across the street, Rebecca is quick to welcome the young writer into the tightly-knit community of Autumn Leaves. She has no idea that Callie will confront her with a truth about herself she might not be ready to face.

All Callie wanted was to flee the big city and finish her latest book in peace, but life in the small town comes with unexpected temptation and danger.

 

 

SORM excerpt

“Let’s see, you bring me food and booze. You’ve known me for five minutes and still haven’t said I talk too much, and you’re fixing my faucet? You’re already my favorite neighbor.”

You could be mine, Rebecca thought, pleased. She set down her cup and got up. “All right, I need to get Maggie from practice in a little while, so I better get started.” She discarded the cardigan and hung it over a chair, stepped out of her pumps and put them underneath. The black T-shirt she wore and the slacks were fine for this kind of work. She could come up with a verdict quickly. “I think it’s just the mounting nut under the sink that needs to be tightened.”

“Um…” Callie didn’t seem to know what to make of that piece of information. “Whatever you say.”

“Don’t worry, it’s nothing serious. Cole’s prices are outrageous anyway. So what do you do?” Rebecca asked, still half-buried under the sink.

“I write,” Callie said.

“What kind of things?”

“Lesbian erotica.”“Ow!” Getting upright, Rebecca promptly hit her head. Callie had some kind of humor. A good thing Betty wasn’t here or the story would have easily topped the no-name-Hollywood-actress one.

“You want me to work on your pipes and not mess up the job, don’t say things like that.” “Why? It’s true.”

Rebecca came out from under her temporary workplace to look at her neighbor skeptically. “There’s a market for that? Really?”

“I can afford to keep this house, if that’s what you meant.” Callie’s tone was somewhat guarded now.

“Sure. Whatever.” There was an indiscreet question on the tip of her tongue, and Rebecca thought she’d better finish here before it slipped out.

“I write all kinds of things.” Callie sighed. “This is just one section, you know. If you want to ask, just ask me already.”

“None of my business. The faucet should be okay now.”

“Thanks.”

“You’re welcome.” Rebecca let the water run for a moment, then turned it off, satisfied that there was no more noisy dripping. “I’m sorry,” she said after a moment of hesitation. “It’s your life. I didn’t mean to judge.”

“Well,” Callie said somberly, “sometimes, when people say I talk too much, I suppose they’re right.”

“No, they’re not. I asked. If you want some advice, though, don’t tell everybody. News travels fast in a small community.” Realizing what she’d just said Rebecca shook her head. “Now listen to me. You’ve been here for a day and I’m already scaring you off. I’m sorry.”

“No harm done. I appreciate the warning. Besides, I write children’s books too. Oh, and, Rebecca…?” Her hand already on the door handle, Rebecca turned around. “Feel free to come over whenever you like. I’ll be here most of the time, writing, and I love distractions.”

Rebecca felt ridiculously relieved that Callie didn’t begrudge her the earlier misunderstanding. “I’ll remember that,” she said. “Don’t forget to call off the plumber.”

Cover Reveal: Breathe Deep by Trisha Haddad

May 9, 2015 Uncategorized 1

SOR Breathe Deep Cover Reveal VBT 2 Banner

Genre: Young Adult

Sequel to Deep Green

Breathe Deep_TrishaHaddad_Cover_150dpi (1)When you’re recalled to life, the first thing to do is breathe…Leah is alive, which is saying a lot after the last few months. She’s faced terrorists, starvation, wild animals, and an assault. Not to mention being marooned for months on an island. Being alive right now is a big deal. Who knew that reentering civilization would be such a struggle?
Her attacker stalks Leah’s nightmares. Paparazzi stalk her waking hours. The goals she worked years toward have unraveled in the months she’s been gone. Her parents look at her like she’s a zombie, risen from the dead (and sometimes she feels that way). She should be able to relate to the other survivors, but one has become a media darling and the other is having even more trouble than Leah acclimating.
Can the castaways rebuild their lives in a world that assumed they were dead? Can romance move forward when the only thing they have in common is the past? Will Leah settle for the distractions of modern life? Or will she find a purpose and a voice?

Praise for Deep Green:

“The author addresses prejudice, abuse, and relationships with men in a way that makes it easy for the target audience to relate to… Leah’s courage and spirit are uplifting. This is a beautiful story and is well written. As a teacher of middle grade students, I would encourage teenage girls to read this adventure.” – Once Upon A YA Book

“Deep intrigue and intense plot are carefully weaved throughout the story…I see similar qualities to the Life of Pi, as Haddad adds intellectual reflection and discussion from her main characters, and is why I would recommend this book to an audience beyond YA.” – A Little Something to Chew On

Seduced by His Desire by Dilys J. Carnie

May 3, 2015 Uncategorized 0

SOR Seduced by his Desire VBT BannerGenre: Contemporary Romance

Series: The Lost Sisters Trilogy, Book 3

Saving her is going to be one of the toughest jobs of his life, because instead of his mind ruling his heart, his heart is ruling his mind.

Security expert and ex-Navy Seal Kent Lloyd steps onto British soil wishing he was anywhere else. But when Jasmine Owen refuses to visit her sisters in Washington, giving them one lame excuse after another, even Kent knows something is seriously wrong.

The last person Jasmine expects or wants to see at her door is the super sexy man who walked away from her bed after one wild night. But when her sisters suspect something is wrong, they send Kent to check on her. Jasmine hasn’t told her family about the stalker who’s making her life a living hell and has her in a constant state of fear, but it looks like she might not be able to keep the truth from them any longer.

Both Kent and Jasmine agree on one thing—they want him to leave England and return to the US as soon as possible. However, he refuses to leave until she’s safe, which means he has to track down her stalker first, and Jasmine has no clue who it is or why the person is obsessed with her.

As Kent struggles to solve the mystery, he also struggles to keep Jasmine at a distance, which is proving to be difficult. The woman stirs his toughened soul, and if he has to spend too much time around her she just may squeeze her way into his heart.

Content Warning: contains adult language and explicit sex


SORM excerpt

The security at the apartment complex was laughable. Kent had found it very easy to enter the building. The front desk where the security guard was supposed to be was vacant. As he walked toward the elevator and waited for the doors to open no one stopped him or asked who he was. It took him to the top floor, and he walked to Jasmine’s apartment.

When he knocked, there was no answer, so he thumped louder. A crash came from inside, but still there was no response at the door. He called out Jasmine’s name, but it was silent. His gut was telling him something wasn’t right, and he pounded his fist against the door again, the wood rattling in its frame. Without hesitation, he shouldered the door, and it crashed open.

There was a slight whooshing noise to his left, which sent him into combat mode. He used reactions that had been sharpened during his school days when he’d had to protect himself from a bully who used to wait on every corner. Until he’d beat the guy up, giving him a taste of his own medicine. Needless to say, he hadn’t bother Kent again. During his time in the Navy SEALS Kent had perfected those skills.

Swinging toward the noise, he lifted his arm to block the blow that was heading his way. He grabbed the unplugged lamp before it connected with his head and had the person in a headlock before he realized it was Jasmine.

He tossed aside the lamp and spun her around to face him. Her long red hair was covering her face. “Jeesus, what in hell’s name do you think you’re doing?” he asked.

She shook the hair from her face and large peridot green eyes stared back at him, the fear all too obvious as her breath came in pants and her body trembled so hard that he felt it right through to his bones.

“Why didn’t you answer the door?”

She stared back at him, her eyes filling with tears.

“Jas, honey, speak.” He shook her gently and a tear slipped down her cheek, filling him with something that stabbed at his heart. “Damn it.” He wrapped his arms around her, pulling her close to him.

He’d scared the living daylights out of her. He should have realized that before he knocked her door in. Her whole body shook against him, and he felt like a jerk.

“I’m sorry, honey. I didn’t mean to scare you.”

Jas dug her hands beneath his jacket and wrapped both arms around him. Her fingers gripped at his back, holding onto the material of his shirt tightly. Her face lay on his chest as she burrowed in close to him.

“Kent?” It was the first word that had come from her since he’d made his entrance.

“Uh-huh.”

“What are you doing here?”

“You haven’t been to see your sisters. You missed Emily coming into the world, and you told Daisy you weren’t going to be coming for Thanksgiving either.”

Jasmine shivered. “I couldn’t go. I explained that to her. I’m getting over another cold, and I’ve got no one to look after the shop.”

Her usually perfectly spoken voice was strained, and he frowned. There was something very off with her. This was not the Jas he knew. He brushed his hand up and down her back, comforting her, until he felt her relax and release the tight hold she had on his shirt.

He kept whispering to her in a soft, comforting voice, assuring her that he would take care of her and everything was going to be okay. When her trembling had almost stopped he stepped back to look at her, and he was shocked at what he saw.

Her usually beautifully coifed hair was untidy, her skin was so pale it was almost alabaster, and the dark circles beneath her eyes told him something was going on, and he wasn’t moving until he got to the bottom of it.

“What’s going on, Jas?”

“Nothing. Everything is fine.” She turned around to go further into the room, but he stopped her by placing his hands on her shoulders and whirling her around so that she faced him. Her chin was dropped to her chest and he raised it with his fingers.

“Honey, you’re lying.”

She shook her head and smiled, but it didn’t reach her eyes. “Trust me, Kent, you don’t want to know.”

“Why not?”

“Because it has nothing to do with you.”

“Get your stuff together. The jet is on standby, and I’m taking you to Washington. On the way there you can tell me why it is you look so awful.”

“No.” She twisted away from him and walked toward the window.

SORM About the Author

My home is on the beautiful island of Anglesey on the west coast of North Wales. Anglesey has been my home since the age of eleven after moving here with my mum and dad and three sisters from Scotland.

I’m the proud mother of two grown children. My daughter Emma is a primary school teacher, and my son Christopher is part of the family business.

I’m a health freak and a vegetarian. Pilates class combined with visiting the gym at least four times a week keeps me fit. I love clothes, makeup, and having my nails and hair done. I’m just a girl’s girl.
If I’m not in my office pounding the keys I’m sitting in my favorite chair reading books and discovering new authors on my Kindle.

As a young child I loved to write. I always carried a notebook and pen around with me and wrote about everything. I never thought for one moment I would ever be able to pick up a book with my name on it and say “I wrote that”. It was a dream come true when I signed with a publisher for my first book in November 2012. So, dare I say at the young age of fifty I think it’s time for me to see if those dreams are everything that I hope they will be.
