Title: Give it a Whirl
Author: Kayt Miller
Genre: Contemporary Romance/New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 23, 2023
Cover Design: Linda Dainty

*Slow Burn Alert**
Need a romance with a nice, slow burn? This friends-to-lovers story is the one for you! If you don’t, maybe this one will change your mind because Matilda and Alec, well, they’re perfect for each other. Perfectly opposite and perfect friends, until they’re not. Happy Reading!
 
Matilda Conklin is always a personal attendant, never a bride. Even in her favorite cousin’s wedding, she’s been relegated to errand running. No matter, Matilda is able to see the bright side of things. Not because she’s an eternal optimist, although, that helps.
 
Nope. It’s because she understands how short life is and that there’s no use whining about stupid stuff like terrible maids-of-honor or how she has to learn the waltz to please her cousin.
 
Matilda knows there’s always a silver lining. This one just happens to be a muscled, six-feet-tall plus kind of silver lining.
 
Alec Marchesani can’t dance. Nor does he want to. Ever. But, here he is, forced by his stupid brother to learn the waltz.
 
The waltz! The only bright spot in this entire sh*t show is the quirky girl next to him. She’s a bit too sunshiny for Alec––you know, too optimistic—but that’s okay. She’s funny, and if there’s one thing Alec Marchesani needs in his life, it’s some funny.
 
Maybe learning to dance the waltz won’t be so bad.

Kayt grew up in the midwest surrounded by a loving family, which included three brothers, one sister, and parents who always fostered her creative side.

She wrote her first book when she couldn’t find a story about a certain type of a woman and a specific kind of man. She called it “Game Changer,” and in couldn’t have been a more appropriate title. It changed her life in many ways.

Her author goal is to write stories that romance readers can relate to, while making readers laugh and sometime shed a tear or two. Kayt hopes her readers can escape into a fantasy, one that’s actually possible.

Sure, some of the stories are dubbed “insta-love,” but that’s okay. She fell in love with her husband pretty damn fast and with her daughter the second she saw her.

Title: Love is for Suckers
Author: Rebel Wild
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Age Gap
Release Date: January 27, 2023


Love
Nichole loved her small-town life and never thought about leaving home. Now she’s an LA sorority girl at a college that rich kids cheat to get into.
It’s been all fun and games, but Nicole is bored with college life and the boys that come with it. Valentine’s Day is approaching and the one thing she wants is to lose her V-card on V-Day.
Older guys do it better. At least that’s what her best friend Dericka says.
With that in mind, Nichole sets her sights on seducing Mr. Valentine’s Day himself, chocolatier Gredin McEwen. And with Dericka’s help, she just might get him.
Hoes before bros have always been their motto.
What can possibly get in the way of that?
Suckers
Gredin doesn’t have time for games or relationships. He’s about to launch a new company with a nonexistent signature dessert. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by her: a college girl with a tempting offer he should refuse.
But he still wants to have his cake and eat it too.
His only rule: one and done. A quick lay for Valentine’s Day. Nothing less and definitely nothing more.
He has no idea just how much more Nicole Adams will be.
Will she be worth breaking the rule?
If you like age-gap, fun romances, then you’ll love the misadventures of this pair.
Rebel Wild is a southern girl transplanted to the City of Angels. She has a passion for sensual romance. She’s best known for her sweet yet tenacious heroines and the hot brooding men who love them.
She writes poems, takes pinup pics of Nelson, her adorable cat, and she’s on a lifelong quest to find the perfect red wine/pinot noir to pair with a five-napkin cheeseburger.
Through her captivating characters, sizzling plots and intimate family dynamics, Rebel’s stories are not just love letters to the Los Angeles of her dreams. She’s created her own universe dripping with human desires and the timeless themes of love, loss and longing.
She loves her heroines smart, slightly innocent just on the edge of blooming in the women they will become, and she pairs them with strong men with dirty minds who reveal their devastating vulnerabilities over time.

Asteamy textual relationship with a mysterious man is what lies between the pages in this deliciously hilarious rom-com around a donut shop.

 

“…wonderfully written and a page-turner.” ~ Goodreads Review

Narrowing him down to two men, she sets about trying to entrap him to reveal which dude he is. Is he the sexy SEAL, code name Celebration Sprinkles, she works for, or is he Frosted Stripes, the hottie doctor who’s a regular at the bakery’s cafe?

As Farrah finds herself falling in love with the mysterious man, she wonders if she will be happy or horrified when she finally finds out which man he is.

Heaven isn’t the dream. It’s the nightmare stalking your every move.

 

Delilah ‘Dee’ Brewer lived her life in the shadow of her sister. As one-half of the famous identical Brewer twins, she was dubbed the Defective Spare. A title bestowed upon her due to circumstances beyond her control.

When she dared to reach for more, it was ripped away from her in the blink of an eye, sending her back into the shadows — existing on the cusp of death.

Until she met him.

Harris Brinkmann. A man who slowly brings Delilah back into the light. A man who, like her, harbors dangerous secrets. A man with an unhealthy, borderline stalkerish obsession with her — and he’s not the only one.

Because he already has a partner, Marc Sotelo, who quickly comes to share Harris’s fascination with her.

They see her. The real her. The version of her that exists outside of shadows. What’s even more baffling is they both want her — all of her.

Together, they are everything they have each ever wanted but shouldn’t have. Together, they feel like heaven — but they all know the truth. Heaven is a cruel mistress that rips pieces from your soul, a waking nightmare that clings to you like a shadow.

Together, they are a special brand of damaged.

And they all know there can’t be a future for them. There will be no happily ever after. There is only the now.

Or is there…?

 

Note: This book can be read as a STANDALONE in the Sin and Sinuosity series.

Whoever said out of sight, out of mind must be crazy.
There wasn’t a day since I left that I didn’t think about her.
As much as I wanted to stay with her in Boulder City, it was never an option.
Caroline had big dreams of becoming a chef, and I’d just signed my rookie contract.
It was the chance of a lifetime for both of us.
After years of no contact, I’d assumed I’d lost her for good, but when I injured my pitching arm, I was given a second chance to right the wrongs from the past.
This is my last chance and the biggest payoff pitch of my life.

Kaylee Rose is a mother, sports fan, and contemporary romance author looking to stretch her creative muscles and explore other genres.
Inspired by her husband’s law enforcement career and her passion for the written word, Kaylee began to pen her novels as an escape from the rigors of everyday life. She admits that teaching herself the craft of writing has been a challenging but wonderful journey and is just the creative outlet she needs. Writing time is her time, and she protects the hard-won moments fiercely.
Kaylee’s award-winning series, The Weight of the Badge, was written after she attended required law enforcement classes with her husband. The seminars focused on the stress a first responder faces daily, how it affects their lives both on and off the job and the continually growing number of law enforcement suicides. With her books and experience married to a law enforcement officer, Kaylee found herself armed with the perfect platform to use her voice and subtly spread the statistics others may not know. Kaylee Rose is passionate about sharing sexy stories with an important message mixed in.
As a mom of four boys and a competitive streak of her own, Kaylee spent over twenty years coaching youth sports.
Kaylee’s husband is her biggest supporter, believing in her even when she can not, and writing love stories comes naturally to her after falling in love with him at first sight.
Kaylee has teamed up with best-selling author Zane Michaelson for her first extra-steamy co-write, Hot in the City.
Keep your eyes out for future collaborations from this writing duo.

Kristina
My accidental solo vacation takes a turn for the less-depressing after a drink that leads to a date with a brawny, bedroom-eyed firefighter. I’m 42, divorced, with two daughters at home. I thought romance was in my rearview mirror until the mysteriously intense Leo makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the Florida Keys.
I know better than to get attached. But between midnight kisses and dirty talk under starry skies, our connection feels so real. So right.
I can’t give up my entire life for a fling. Not even for a man that reminds me I’m not defined by a failed marriage and a car pool calendar. And especially not one who has no interest in a family of his own, let alone a package deal like me.
Leo
We were supposed to be temporary. Just like everything else in my life. So why can’t I get Kristina out of my head? I’m the master of no strings, no attachments. But our time together haunts me after she leaves.
I’m not cut out to make a life with a woman. A woman with two kids? Forget it.
At least, that’s what I thought until fate brings us together again. It turns out the move I made to be closer to family brings me to Kristina’s hometown—and right in her path.
I can’t still explain the overpowering pull between us, but I’m sure of who she is.
Mine.
And I’m not letting her go this time.
Stephanie Rose is a badass New Yorker, a wife, a mother, and lover of all things chocolate. Most days you’ll find her trying to avoid standing on discarded LEGO or deciding which book to read next. Her debut novel, Always You, released in 2015, and since then she’s written several more—some of which will never see completion—and has ideas for hundreds to come.
