JP’s childhood was the definition of dysfunctional, but he has a sweet set up as an adult. He bounces around, working at his siblings’ businesses, steers clear of relationships, and plans to stay child-free for life. Few commitments and even fewer responsibilities; just how he likes it. He cruises along with no shortage of women to warm his bed and fun times to be had until the universe drops a seven-month, fifteen-pound bomb in his lap.
Hannah doesn’t have a rebellious bone in her body, which is why she’s stunned to find herself traveling to Vermont to spy on her infant niece’s father. After the recent passing of her sister, Hannah’s parents are struggling and failing to deal with their new reality. They beg her to help them get custody of their grandchild in any way possible, no matter how unsavory.
When Hannah arrives in Vermont, she doesn’t find a neglectful, degenerate father as her parents predicted. Instead, she encounters JP, a man whose world was rocked to its core. Before long, Hannah is suffocating under a mountain of lies and falling hard for a man her family despises.
JP has so much to learn, but with Hannah’s help, he’s finding responsibility isn’t the dirty word he made it out to be. Instead, the more time he spends with her, the more he wonders what else he’s misjudged, like relationships.
Hannah is thrilled to help JP muddle his way through single parenthood and explore their developing feelings. But with so many secrets and challenges between them, how can this end in anything but heartbreak?

Author: Shyla Colt
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Dreams2Media
Publication Date: Jan. 21st, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

I’ve suspected my engagement has been broken for a while, and no amount of nails can hold it together.

I’ve had a secret dream for a long time, and now it’s time to DIY it and start fresh. After I kick my unsupportive fiancé to the curb, I quit my corporate gig and purchase my first house—a fixer-upper that looks better on paper than it does down to the bones.

Suddenly this all feels a little too real.

To make matters worse, my new neighbor is the cocky quarterback I spent four years tutoring, Bennett Cromwell. Our love/hate relationship is still heavy on the hate, which is the last thing I need after sawing away the man who stood in the way of my happiness.

Now, I have the sexy tattoo artist doling out unsolicited advice, annoyingly helpful assistance, and sinful dreams. If I can’t keep him and his adorable puppy off my property, I may forget why I loathe him.

There’s a thin line between love and hate, and our fights leave me nailed in more ways than one.

USA Today Bestselling author Shyla Colt is a chaos wrangler, chronic crafter, and imaginary friend collector. The mom of two and a wife road trips with her weird brood when she’s not taking on a new hobby or bingeing on spooky podcasts and documentaries.

Abigails AngelAbigail’s Angel

This book covers a topic that will be a trigger for some. As asurvivor of domestic violence, I feel it’s a story that needs to be told. If you think it will trigger you, I don’t recommend this book for you.

Our wedding day
The happiest day of my life
And the day my life changed.
I married the most incredible man
How did I miss the signs?

I thought he loved me
That he adored me.
I was wrong
I was merely a toy.
A thing for him to control
And to hurt.
This was hell
My husband the demon.
I longed for death
Then I would be free.
Until an angel came
To save me.

Abigails Reawakening

Abigail’s Awakening

This is the conclusion to Abigail’s Angel. It is important that it not be read until you’ve read Abigail’s Angel first.

Abigail
It was two years since the event.
When an angel had come to save me.
Not all angels have wings.
Some were school teachers. . .
Like Drew.
In those two years we’d stayed in contact via email.
Jackson Primary needed a new school counsellor.
And that was me.
I wanted to surprise him because Drew didn’t know.
What I hadn’t counted on, was my reaction to him.

Drew
Jackson Primary was getting a new school counsellor.
I couldn’t believe it. It was her. Abigail.
Two years on and the haunted look was gone.
She looked healthy. Happy. So beautiful.
I wanted to be there to protect her.
To slay those dragons for her.
But she was so much stronger now.
The line between protecting her and smothering her, was a fine one.
I had to be careful I didn’t cross it.
Abigail deserved to fly free and live her life.
I just wanted to be there to catch her if she fell.

I am an Australian author so I have used mostly Australian spelling and grammar.

I’d been in love with Grayson for three years,
But to him, I was just a work colleague.
While he shared his bed with beautiful women I shared mine with my two feline friends.
All my life, I’d battled health problems.
What better place to work than with three doctors.
The problem was Dr Grayson Ryker.
Every day was a challenge to not let him see how I felt.
Then I got sick and he came to my rescue.
A knight saving the damsel in distress.
Everything changed from that moment.
Dr Grayson had the best bedside manner.
I saw a side of him I’d never seen before.
Maybe there was more to this gorgeous man after all?

Surviving Sebastian

Surviving Sebastian

Sebastian

I had a reputation for being hard and controlling.

Ruthless in the boardroom and the bedroom.

When you’re on the Forbes rich list the gold diggers always circle, like greedy sharks.I wasn’t going to make the same mistakes as my father.

I like my mistresses cold and compliant.

They were little more than business deals to me.

While I was cold and indifferent, my younger brother was wild and reckless.

His stupidity sent me on a flight across the country to save him from himself.

That’s when I first saw her.

Beautiful.

Passionate.

Fiery.

Dangerous.

She was the flight attendant.

It was unlikely we’d cross paths again, until a freak accident forced us together, and it became a race for survival.

I hated how much I wanted her. I hated her.

Indigo

As a flight attendant, I worked a lot of private charters.

Catering to the needs of the rich.

Sebastian Colton Montgomery the 2nd was not what I’d expected.

Gorgeous.

Arrogant.

Cold as ice.

It was supposed to be a simple job.

Take care of him and his mistress on the flight across the country.

Engine trouble changed everything, and we were forced together in the midst of extreme circumstances.

Surviving a plane crash was nothing compared to being stranded alone with someone like Sebastian Montgomery.

He could turn my body to ice or set my skin on fire with a flash of those silvery eyes.

I thought life would return to normal once we were rescued.

He wanted me but he hated me.

I had no interest in his mind games.

I’d survived a plane crash but surviving Sebastian without being burned, was going to be the bigger challenge.

Please Note: This book contains a mix of Australian and American English.

Being Me

Being Me

Ben
For over a decade I’d been living a lie
They say the truth will set you free
They lied…
The TRUTH resulted in my wife’s death
Now I am free from my lie
But I’d never be free of my guilt
Until I met HIM
Suddenly crunching numbers had lost their appeal
He counted more…
More than I realised
He makes me feel alive
But I’m scared too….

Cam
I didn’t believe in love
I’d spent my life avoiding relationships
NOT for me
There was no such thing as: The One…
He was only meant to balance my books
Not rock my world
For the first time I wanted more
With HIM
I was in charge, in control always
I felt needy, yet alive
More alive than ever before
That was a first…

It Started With You

It Started With You – COMING SOON TO KU

Kane Marshall.
It all began with a cow.
Okay, this is one of those chicken and egg moments.
First there was the ogling. Then came the cow. One huge cow.
I was only trying to save her. The woman. Not the cow.
That ended in disaster. For me. Not her.Who knew this could all get SO embarrassing?

Angelica Hart.
It all began with a bull. He’ll tell you it was a cow.
He thinks he was saving me from it. But someone should have saved it from him.
We met under strange circumstances.
Circumstances that ended up shattered on the ground: literally.
I swear you can’t make this stuff up. I wanted to forget him, but fate, or maybe it was concussion intervened. Who knew this could get SO complicated? THIS is our story.

This is a love story, full of those cringe-worthy moments. Moments you might be able to relate to. If you don’t want to read about very real, very human situations, OR, you don’t believe that love can strike quickly and when you least expect it, then perhaps this book isn’t for you. If however, you do love to laugh. I’m talking plenty of those laugh out loud moments, then this book IS for you.

My brother told me I was lucky to be alive.
The car accident I’d been in should have killed me. It didn’t.
We’d always been close and he was right, life was too short.
We were going to live the dream until it all became a nightmare when my brother took his own life.
Nothing was the same any more. My seachange became a life of self imposed isolation until her….

Sinfully Sweet

Sinfully Sweet

Tabitha…
By day I was a successful blogger although to look at me, you’d never guess.
My best friend Manny called me hot. A hot mess that is.
By night, I was a peeping Tom, listening in on my neighbour getting it on.
It was like porn without the picture. Shame about that.
Who was this stud on the other side of my bedroom wall?
I was boring in comparison. The only man sharing my bed was my black cat.
I needed to even the score. Show him I could have a good time too.
I just needed to enlist the help of Manny for my master plan.

Leon….
By day, baking cakes was my passion. Creating things of beauty to eat.
By night, my passion centred around the beautiful women who warmed my bed.
Hearing my neighbour getting it on roused more than just my curiosity.
I wanted to meet the sexy siren who lived next door.
Wow, did she turn out to be nothing like I expected.
Swap sexy siren for tiny, crazy fireball with big hair.
She kept me on my toes. She had me wanting more.
Could we make this work? You know what they say about the best laid plans….

Cats and cheap rent?
It sounded too good to be true. And it was
It wasn’t the house or the cats
The problem was my landlord
Italian. Gorgeous. Should have a marble statue carved in his image
Until I got to know him
Sure he was a good guy when it came to animals
Raising millions….But inside?
He was broken. Tormented by his past
Angry. Hurting
He wanted me to leave him alone. I couldn’t
He didn’t want my help, but I had to try

Life was never the same again the day I saw a golden vision out jogging
Beautiful. Sexy. Hang on a minute….THAT’S skin!
She’s naked? We don’t do naked in my country town.
Naked jogging… Is that a thing?
I should have guessed she would be trouble
Tempting and teasing me. Until the bungee rope incident
We don’t talk about that. So don’t ask. Please.
This golden temptress brings me to my knees
That’s why I call it……The Willow Effect

Willow
WOAH! Now THAT’S a mountain man
That’s what I thought when I first saw Noah.
A huge beast of a man
Sexy as hell, even under all that hair
He’s not a fan of bungee jumping. It’s a private joke.
Did I mention he screams like a girl?
He’s seriously uptight. He needs to live a little.
Life was too short. I knew that better than anyone
Time to show this shy, awkward giant how to live a little.

Title: Things We Never Got Over
Author: Lucy Score
Genre: Romance
Release Date: January 13, 2022
 
Knox is a badass, bar-owning barber who prefers to live his life the way he takes his coffee: Alone. Well, except for his basset hound, Waylon. He doesn’t tolerate drama (Knox, not Waylon. Waylon loves drama.). Especially not when it comes in the form of a stranded runaway bride.
Naomi answered her estranged–some would say evil–twin’s call for help, arriving in rural and rough-around-the-edges Knockemout, Virginia, ready to be the good sister as usual.
Too bad her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The 11-year-old niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Dun dun dunnnn!
There are reasons why Knox doesn’t do family drama or high-maintenance women who actually believe in all the bullshit trappings of romance. But since her life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help Naomi out of her jam. Even if the uptight good girl is a gigantic pain in his ass. As soon as she stops getting herself into new trouble, he can stop dragging her into his bed and go back to his peaceful, solitary life.
At least, that’s the plan until the trouble turns to real danger.

Title: Risky Little Affair
Series: Lake State University Series #3
Author: Rachael Brownell
Genre: One-Night Stand Romance
Release Date: January 13, 2022
 
 
A one-night stand.
That’s all I wanted. All I could handle.
I had enough on my plate. Getting involved with a notorious playboy was not on my agenda. Which is why he was perfect. He didn’t do relationships and I didn’t have time for one.
He’d been stoking my fire all weekend. Whispering dirty promises in my ear. Weaseling his way under my skin. And I was ready to combust.
He agreed to my terms. Probably because I was naked, he was caught off guard, and judging by the tent in his shorts, thinking with the wrong head.
I should have known better than to take him at his word.
Two days. That’s all he lasted before he showed up at my door begging for more.
More than I had to give. More than I was willing to part with.
My time. My body.
Most importantly, my heart.
And when I said no, he persisted until I caved. Not that he had to work very hard to wear me down. He was too tempting to ignore, and I craved another taste.
The only way to protect myself from getting hurt… rules. Some to keep him at a distance, others to keep him close.
Like rule number eight… no other sexual partners. The only dorm room I wanted him sneaking in and out of was mine.
I knew I was in over my head. That what we were doing was going to blow up in our faces as soon as our friends found out. But in the moment, I couldn’t bring myself to care about any of it.
Consequences be damned.

Blurb:

It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.

A driven career woman who has no time for love. A professional baseball player who has no desire for commitment. But when they come together for their friends’ island wedding, the mesmerizing beach breezes have them wanting to find time for each other—if only for one steamy weekend.

Raine

I haven’t spent much time with Sophie since we were kids. When we started high school, we headed in different directions and never looked back. She invited me to her wedding this weekend. I don’t want to go because despite all our years apart, I know one thing hasn’t changed: her mission to find me the perfect man. I’ve told her I don’t have time for dating, but she never listens. I’m guessing she’s going to be pushing some guy at me the minute I get off the plane.

Alex

My teammate Seb’s getting married this weekend. I’m happy for him, but I can’t relate to it at all. He wants to spend the rest of his life with Sophie. I don’t even want to spend the rest of the night with the women who end up in my bed. I’m fine with that, but for some reason, Sophie’s not. Even with my best efforts to stop it, she’s been trying to find me love since the day we met. She told me one of her childhood friends is coming to the wedding, so I’m guessing that’s who I’ll be hiding from all weekend.

Let the games begin.
