Title: One Kind Dance
Series: One Kind Deed Series
Author: Christine DePetrillo
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2022
 
 
Secrets had a way of destroying everything.
 
Trusting the wrong guy has huge consequences. Tessa Collins learned that the hard way and now there’s a black mark next to her name. She’s spent a fair amount of energy trying to outrun that stain, but it will always be there. The best she can do is throw herself into her dance career at The Nalu Resort in Hawaii. Pristine beaches, endless sunshine, and her wonderful best friend have done wonders to heal her soul. As long as she stays away from men, she’ll survive.
 
But ignoring men is hard. Especially ones that look like resort guest Detective Donovan Henley. When he plays the white-knight role to rescue her from an aggressive vacationer, she’s more than a little intrigued by his protect-and-serve attitude. Getting involved with a sexy Vermont cop who could easily find out all her secrets, however, is asking for disaster. So what if Donovan makes her feel things she’s never felt with anyone else? Tessa isn’t going to let another man disturb her rhythm.
 
Is one kind dance enough to keep two hearts in step?
 
One Kind Dance is a vacation-fling, small-town, contemporary romance that features a detective hero who protects the ones he loves and a dancing heroine with a checkered past.
 
 
 
 

 
 
“Almost there,” Donovan said. “This is my street.”

Tessa sat up a little straighter, but all she saw around them were trees, trees, and more trees. The darkness was all consuming apart from the twin beams of the truck’s headlights ahead of them.

“Does anyone else live on this street?”

Donovan chuckled. “Yes, most of the properties have long driveways though so you can’t see the houses from here.”

“Oh.” Everything around her little chunk of Kauai was right out in the open because it was a tourist area, but her family home in Maine had been like this. Neighbors spread out and everyone having their own little private world. “Do you get lonely out here?”

He shrugged. “Sometimes, but I spend a lot of time at work or in town. Mostly I just sleep here.” He navigated the truck around a large branch in the road. “I’m going to move that for the next guy. Do you mind?”

“Not at all.” She loved how he looked out for other people.

He put the truck in park and jumped out. He walked to the back of the truck and Tessa followed his path, but she couldn’t see him in the darkness. A scraping sounded as he must have slid the big branch to the side of the road. She had a moment to think she wouldn’t want to be on this road alone right now before Donovan was climbing back into the driver’s seat.

“Have you encountered animals up here?” she asked as they got moving again.

“Yup.” Donovan held up his gloved hand, counting with his fingers. “Bears, moose, deer, fox, turkeys, coyotes, raccoons, porcupines, beavers, squirrels, chipmunks, birds.” He put his hand down then brought it back up. “Oh, and spiders. Huge ones.” He walked his hand along her arm, simulating spider legs with his fingers.

She slapped his hand, stopping his motion. “Joke’s on you, Mystery Guy. I love spiders. I used to pitch a fit as a kid if my mother killed one that got into the house. I’d try to trap them peacefully in a cup and free them outside.”

“You got fifty percent more adorable with that story.” Donovan followed the road to the right where it bent, his driving cautious on the snowy road. “I try not to kill spiders and other bugs too, unless they get into the bathroom. Something about being naked around insects freaks me out.”

“Don’t want them to see your bits and pieces?”

He shook his head. “I’m selective in who gets that show.”

“I’m glad I made the cut.” So glad. Donovan’s bits and pieces had brought her so much pleasure over the past few days they’d spent together. She looked forward to making love to him in his bed as they had in hers.

“Trust me, my bits and pieces are overjoyed you made the cut.” He turned into a driveway that had almost no snow on it. “Wow, Christian must want something if he did this good of a plow job on my driveway.”

A single floodlight pierced the darkness ahead. Tessa couldn’t see much aside from the black silhouette of what she assumed was Donovan’s man cave. Her heart sped up as a garage door slowly crept up when he’d hit the remote on his visor. This was it. She was here. In Vermont. With Donovan.

 
 
 
 
 

Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees, conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil. She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the only roof over her head.

Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.
She lives in Rhode Island and occasionally Vermont with her pack–a husband, a cat, and a big, black German Shepherd who defends her fiercely from all evils.

Title: #Blayde

Series: Rich City Boys
Author: Even Monroe
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2022
Cover Design: Designs by Dana

“… story with humor, witty banter, intrigue, suspense, danger, romance, and love, which leads to an entertaining read.” ~Wendy’s Book Blog

 
Control is something I exercise all day, every day, in my job and personal life.
 
My walls have been up for years, and it’s taking its toll.
 
Will I ever find someone I can be myself with?
Blayde has moved up the ranks in the police force in record time due, in part, to his dedication and focus on the job. His precision and cool head leave most in awe of him, but behind the uniform and tall walls lurks a man at war with his desires and baser instincts.
Victoria knows a lot about desire, anticipation, excitement, and seduction. Despite a disastrous first meeting, there’s definitely a spark between her and Blayde, but can she break her way through the steel fence around him?
And if she does, will she be able to cope with what she finds? Or will she be biting off way more than she can chew?
Rich City Boys – #Blayde is the fourth standalone novel in the Rich City Boys contemporary romance series. If you like sexy cops, lingerie shops, and steam right to the very last word, start reading now.
 
A happily ever after is guaranteed.
 
Smoothing a hand over my skirt and taking a deep breath, I step back and open the door wide. Light from the store hits his face, and I get my first proper look at Officer Sexy. He’s a freaking hunk, like movie-star-cop-hunk. Wow, he really is in the right profession. I bet he makes a fortune with tips and everything. He couldn’t look the part more. The uniform is perfect, the way he stands and the air about him, it’s so commanding.
 
And his face. Panty-melting good looks—dark blond hair, firm lips, and a jawline I want to run my tongue over. Finishing my appraisal of him, I meet his eyes, and that’s the end of me. I’m done.
 
This is the moment I decide. I truly know that I must have this woman. My reservations and self-preservation desert me, and I can’t think of a single reason not to pursue this woman to the ends of the earth. She pushes my buttons like nobody ever has, and when I withdrew, she fired up like a hellcat.
 
She wants this. She wants me.
 
“Take it off,” I say, motioning to her with my chin. I want her standing in the middle of my bedroom completely naked.
 
“Sorry?”
 
“You heard me. Take it off,” I growl. Even to my own ears, my voice is gruff and harsh. She moistens her lips with her tongue and swallows. There’s nowhere to hide, no room for being a bit coy or for shyness.
Author of steamy romance, right to the last word.

Title: Control Freak
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2019
Cover Design: Maria @ Steamy Designs

Total control. I need it in every aspect of my life. Some would say that makes me an asshole. A freak. But as long as everything’s exactly how I want it I’m completely flexible. 


I’m kidding.
 
Okay, I’m not kidding.
 
Lacey needs someone in her life who’s bigger and scarier than her anxieties, and she wants that man to be me. Her boss. The Viking in a suit.
 
I hope she understands what she’s getting into. This daddy isn’t going to pat her on the head and tell her she’s a good girl for nothing. Especially not when she’s spinning out of control.

 

I show her the two silver objects on my palm. Nipple clamps. I apply each one, screwing them firmly into place and giving them a small tug so I know they’re secure. I look up and wait a moment, giving her the chance to say orange or red if she needs to.
Her expression is slightly pained, but she doesn’t speak.

I’m not finished yet. I take out two small metal weights on thin silver chain, and I hook each one to the clamps. The tips of her nipples are an angry pink.

‘Do you want to say anything, Lacey?’

She shakes her head firmly, though her lower lip is caught between her teeth and her gaze is fastened on the other side of the room, as if she’s concentrating hard.

‘That’s wonderful,’ I murmur, tracing her nipples with the tip of a finger. ‘You just stay there.’

I go back to my desk and continue with my work. I don’t look at her, but I’m totally aware of her. She’s breathing more sharply than normally so it must hurt.

Good.

Her silent fortitude is like a drug for me. It’s brutish, liking sweet girls in pain, but it fucking makes my dick hard.

 

There’s nothing Brianna Hale likes more than a large, stern alpha male with a super-protective and caring streak, and when she’s not writing about them she can usually be found with a book, a cocktail, planning her next trip to a beautiful location or attending the theatre. She believes that pink and empowerment aren’t mutually exclusive, and everyday adventures are possible. Brianna lives in London.
