A Complete Duet – The story of Tatiana Nikolaev!
 
My husband.
His secrets.
Our tragedy.
I thought I knew him. I didn’t. I thought he was trustworthy. He wasn’t.
But nothing in this world is as it seems.
I caught the attention of the most notorious man in the underworld.
Konstantin wasn’t the type to be ignored. He commanded his criminal empire with an iron fist but he had secrets of his own.
But I was Tatiana Nikolaev. I’d never bend to a man’s will or be used as a pawn. Not again.
The moment I tempted the fates and played with fire, life spiraled out of control.
My only way of survival was to trust again.
But could I?
 
*This is a complete duet.*

Blurb:

Running seems to be the theme of my life. I ran the day my sister was abducted. I ran from the pressure of living up to her memory. I ran from being told I was wanted. I ran from everything. I continued running straight into the arms of a sexy and confident Dominant who saw my broken pieces and offered me a place to heal and grow in my submission. 

I was given a glimpse of a future I never dreamed possible, and I thought my days of running were behind me. But just as quickly as they came, my hopes and dreams shattered at my feet. While everyone around me celebrated, I suffered in silence. I was left with a single heartbeat frozen in time. Once again, I heard a familiar voice telling me to run. 

Without an explanation, I left everything behind to try to outrun the suffocating pain. But I’m so tired of running. Will I have the strength to face him, and what will happen when he finds out what I’ve been hiding?

Authors: Gwyn McNamee & Christy Anderson
Genre: Small Town Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 16, 2023
Cover Design: Bookin’ It Designs
 
Bobby Sweet is a legend in the kitchen.
Rumor is, he really knows how to handle an eggplant.
It’s the entire reason I’m here writing this article about him for the paper.
But I keep having to remind myself to stay professional.
Because things are really heating up in his kitchen.
And the rumors are true.
Bobby’s eggplant is something to behold.
Large.
Thick.
Exactly what I’ve been craving.
It makes my mouth water…
Along with other parts of me…
The only question is, will I be able to handle all of it?
I can certainly try.
A spicy spring fling with the hot chef may be just what I need…
Enjoy this stand-alone hot and dirty insta-lust romantic comedy filled with vegetable and kitchen shenanigans from USA Today Bestselling Authors Gwyn McNamee and Christy Anderson.

Gwyn McNamee is an attorney, writer, wife, and mother (to one human baby and two fur babies). Originally from the Midwest, Gwyn relocated to her husband’s home town of Las Vegas in 2015 and is enjoying her respite from the cold and snow. Gwyn has been writing down her crazy stories and ideas for years and finally decided to share them with the world. She loves to write stories with a bit of suspense and action mingled with romance and heat.

When she isn’t either writing or voraciously devouring any books she can get her hands on, Gwyn is busy adding to her tattoo collection, golfing, and stirring up trouble with her perfect mix of sweetness and sarcasm (usually while wearing heels).

Gwyn is the author of The Hawke Family series, The Slip Series, The Deadliest Sin Series, The Inland Seas Series, The Supernatural Love Stories in the Absurd (written as her alter-ego, DP Payne), and several stand-alone novels.

 

Writing with a whole lot of sarcasm and humor, mixed with a bit of Southern charm, Christy Anderson ain’t no sweet tea kinda storyteller. As an author of romance, Christy believes it doesn’t always have to be hearts and flowers; sometimes, it is dark and twisted, but romance nonetheless. She mixes terror, revenge, and a sliver of love and hope into stories about family, friends, struggles, blurred lines, and happily-ever-afters. Christy lives in the beautiful mountains of Eastern Tennessee with her husband and 152 cats (not really, but close), where she enjoys writing one twist at a time. Christy loves to hear from her readers, and here’s where you can find her:

Blurb:
Two men vie for Lady Anna, but who will she choose? The smooth politician or the down-to-earth barrister turned duke?

 

Lady Anna Ravencroft shines brightly as a much-admired organizer and hostess. In her mind it is the one thing at which she succeeds. Inwardly she is shy, retiring… a wallflower. With two failed seasons that ended in disaster she has accepted marriage might not be in her future.

 

Lord Fraser Castleton, a London barrister is shocked when he inherits a title and estate from his mother’s great aunt and becomes the 8th Duke of Willbury. He returns to Sommer-by-the-Sea to take up permanent residence. He crosses paths with his longtime friend, Lady Anna. He confides that he is the target of every mother with an unmarried daughter. She commiserates with him. Every eligible gentleman sees the Ravencroft purse rather than her. Together they decide to find a mate for each other. Anna presents him with a list of several eligible women. Castleton is receptive, but not enthusiastic. He gives her the same reaction with the subsequent two lists. Will she realize he has already found his match?

 

Reginald Younge who doesn’t always play by the rules wants to be the next Member of Parliament for his borough. His political backer will support him if Younge can finance the campaign himself. He suggests Younge find a wealthy wife to support his political plans. Marrying a Ravencroft would all but guarantee not only his backer’s continued support but provide the steady stream of money needed to claim his place amongst the gentry. He calls on Lady Anna for assistance with a campaign event and has an ulterior motive.

“Lady Anna. Lord Castleton. Welcome to the Tea Room.” Tanya took off her apron and set off a small cloud of flour as she put the pinnie down on the counter.

 

Anna glanced around the dining room. An older couple sat at the only other occupied table.

 

Castleton helped her into her chair as Tanya made her way to the front of the tearoom. He turned to her with his irresistibly devastating grin.

 

Anna busied herself by removing her gloves and putting them into her reticule, then placing it on her lap all to avoid his gaze. When she could no longer stall, she raised her head and found him sitting across from her and still staring.

 

What should she say? It was as if she didn’t know this man when they had been friends most of their lives. Well, she certainly didn’t know him as a military man, a barrister, a duke, and especially not as someone courting her. All she

knew was the boy with whom she grew up and in a moment of panic, she wanted to leave.

 

“I didn’t intend to embarrass you. I can’t help the way I look at you.” His elbow was on the table with his chin in his hand. “One glance and I find myself smiling.”

 

He removed his hand and struck a more proper attitude, opened his serviette, and draped it on his lap.

 

Was he playing his part? She glanced at the couple at the other table and concluded he was courting her for their sake. Perhaps she could play the game as well.

 

“You flatter me, Fraser,” she gracefully placed her hand to her throat. “Or should I say you flatter yourself if you think I’m embarrassed.” She sat up straighter and looked down her nose following propriety. For two Seasons she observed and

learned as girls struck that position.

 

“Oh?” He dared to struggle to hide his chuckle.

 

“Ginger biscuits, really, Fraser. I would have thought you’d had your fill as a boy and moved on to other more tempting morsels.”

 

He leaned closer toward her. His eyes were even more passionate than they had been moments before. He took her hand and her breath caught.

 

“Oh, but I am moved by a more temping… morsel. Much more tempting. Would you like me to elaborate?” With that he raised her hand to his lips.   

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.
