    His secret will shatter her world.

    Katherine Colby’s life splintered ten years ago when her lover suddenly vanished, leaving her with more than a broken heart. But when Kal unexpectedly makes an appearance, her safe, dependable existence is shattered once more. Drawn into Kal’s deadly world of vampires and demons, she must now put aside her hurt and anger and learn to trust him. Can she forgive past deceptions and find the courage to love again? Or will she turn away the one man who owns her heart and soul?

    Her secret will change his life.

    Powerful, and lethal, Kal is a vampire warrior, sworn to protect humans from demons. Loving Katherine too much to pull her into his dangerous world, Kal deserted her, believing his decision was best for them both. But not even time could assuage his yearning for the woman who has captured his heart. As fate tosses them together once again, Kal must fight to win Katherine’s trust and forgiveness before evil separates them forever. But is he ready to become the man she needs him to be? Or will he lose the one woman he can’t live without?

     
    My Teaser
    His taste, his scent, the feel of his hard body pressed against hers, tossed her around on the sea of desire. And she welcomed it. Ten years was far too long to abstain from sex. And she sorely needed more than the empty orgasms she gave herself.

    Brenda Dyer writes sexy-as-hell love scenes, so if you enjoyed that teaser, be sure to check out The Prophecy Series.

    An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

    Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.

    The Rosie Project is a moving and hilarious novel for anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of overwhelming challenges.

     

    My Teaser
       "The city lights. The view's amazing."
       "Unfortunately it's static. Once you've examined it, there's no reason to look again. Like paintings."
       "But it changes all the time. What about in the early morning? Or when it rains? What about coming up here just to sit?"
       I had no answer that was likely to satisfy her. I had seen the view when I bought the apartment. It did not change much in different conditions. And the only times I just sat were when I was waiting for an appointment or if I was reflecting on a problem, in which case interesting surroundings would be a distraction.
     

    This novel is unlike anything I've ever read before. Imagine a book in the point-of-view of Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. That's what it's like reading this. And I loved every minute of it.

    Georgia McKnight would do anything for her daughter Eden, but the one thing she's failed to do is to provide her daughter with a model of a good marriage. To remedy that, she's set her sights on converting her friendship with Daniel, the divorced father of Eden's best friend, into a romance. Unfortunately, she has to leave Dallas for the summer to help her parents in Hero Creek, where her ex-husband waits, scheming to win her back.

    Sol McKnight has three passions in his life: riding bulls, his daughter, and the woman he married right out of high school. He's pulled some underhanded tricks over the years in order to keep his ex-wife single. He doesn't regret a single one of them because, well, they worked. But now, she's come home and he has a chance to win her back for good. If he's smart about it, maybe he can make her see that she belongs with him.

    My Teaser
       Georgia threw up her hands. Sol was a one-note song. "I don't believe it. You really think every man in the world is dying to sleep with me."
       "Nope. Only the sane, heterosexual ones."
       She rolled her eyes.
       "Really Georgia? You don't get that?" His voice was soft but full of some emotion she couldn't interpret. "You don't get that when a  man looks at you, he can't help wanting you?"

    The rest of the scene just keeps getting better and sweeter and hotter. If you haven't read a McKnight book, you're missing out on some hot Texas cowboys.

    Summer's Temptation Release Day!

    Title: Summer’s Temptation

    Series: Vandeveer University, #1

    Author: Ashley Lynn Willis

    Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

    Blurb:
    If there are only three truths in life, they are these. Women will always try to change a man. Men will always say anything to get a girl in bed. Tyler Mason will always have a long line of girls trying to domesticate him, and none will succeed. If one of these ceases to be true, the world will cease to exist.

    These are the rules as college student Cassie Faye knows them, so when she gives up on dating in favor of a man who can satisfy her without tempting her heart, her next-door neighbor Tyler tops the list. Tyler isn’t the type of boy Cassie would fall for, but he’s the perfect guy to teach her how to claim her sexual independence without losing her heart in the process. Too late, Cassie finds out that under his womanizing exterior is an attentive, considerate lover who brings out passions in her that she'd barely glimpsed before.

    What if she’s wrong about the third truth? What if the world as she knows it is about to cease to exist?

    It’s time.

    Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

    The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

    In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.


    My Teaser
    My resistance only seemed to turn him on, and he chuckled again. His hand blessedly eased off my throat, only to start wandering down my body. I was about to bite his arm and stomp his foot when he spoke again.
    "You smell so much better than the last time I saw you. If you weren't a disgusting little Neph, I'd take you right now."

    Yeah, this isn't your typical YA paranormal romance. It's way sexier than most. If you haven't checked out Wendy Higgins, Sweet Evil Series, I highly recommend it.
