Cover Design by Helen Williams with Photography by Wander Aguiar Photography

About THE KNOCKED UP PLAN:

There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and wild — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.

Right?

****

There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. After all, my job is like a coach and my latest assignment for the good of mankind is to create a fail-safe, battle-tested, proven guide of what to do or say to get a woman to fall into your bed — I mean, fall for you. So when Nicole says she’s game to work through my list in a hands-on way, I take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, anywhere, any night? Except . . . what if I do?

Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoonworthy hero you will fall madly in love with!

A Note from Lauren:

Hey there! I have exciting news to share about the book that has been known as THE WILD ONE. You guys know that I like to keep things fresh and new, and I also like to change things that aren’t quite working as well as they were in the past. That’s why THE WILD ONE is getting a new title, a new cover, AND a brand-new release date—more than TWO WEEKS earlier than originally planned! I am so excited to bring you THE KNOCKED UP PLAN on June 23 (instead of July 10). This is a brand-new standalone story!

You may be wondering WHY I’m making this change. Let me tell you—when I first picked the title more than a year ago, I had no idea the direction the story would take. But as I was writing the book a few months ago, the storyline and characters—including a hero you’ve never met before who will melt your heart and panties—surprised me. This isn’t a story about a woman taming a wild playboy.

This standalone romance is about all of the fun, hotness, and heartfelt emotions that come when a single woman asks her gorgeous, jaded, sworn-to-be-single-forever good friend to get one very particular job done. What happens next when he agrees to provide the bun for her oven are lots of hot sexy times and heartfelt moments. The original title just doesn’t suit the storyline for Nicole and Ryder.

I love THE KNOCKED UP PLAN because it says exactly what the story is about—it’s a fun, sexy and heartfelt story that’s full of hot baby-making sex and emotions that will bring a happy tear to your eye. The best news is that I will release THE KNOCKED UP PLAN two and a half weeks early! I’m even more delighted to let you know that I have listened to all of your requests and comments and will be releasing this book on a Friday!! Readers have repeatedly told me that Friday is their ideal release day, so you will get THE KNOCKED UP PLAN on Friday, June 23! If you preordered THE WILD ONE on iBooks, B&N, Kobo, Google Play or in paperback, don’t worry—you don’t need to do anything! You’ll get THE KNOCKED UP PLAN now with that preorder, and you’ll get it on June 23! THE KNOCKED UP PLAN is not yet on Kindle, but will be a few days before its release!

So get ready to dive in to THE KNOCKED UP PLAN and watch Nicole and Ryder’s story heat up—on the page and in the sheets!

HAVEN – A Rebekah Weatherspoon Review

IMG_1507.JPG

Lordy, lordy, lordy. I believe I have found a new suspense/sexy/thriller/erotic author!

Let me start off with saying that Haven’s series is titled Beards & Bondage: that’s two checks for this girl right here *raises hand and waves*. Then we’re given this jaw-droppingly sexy blurb that just says it ALL! I knew I needed to read this the moment I finished the blurb.

Now that we’ve laid the groundwork for an amazing story to be told… I love Shep Olsen. A secluded and introvert mountain man with a kink for..kink. SIGN ME UP! I love that this story starts you right in the action and drama of a killer on the loose and a woman desperate for help.

Shep and Claudia have this instant attraction that simmers just below the surface despite being thrown together in the midst of tragedy. I loved getting to see these two interact not only upon meeting one another (and Shep saving her) but also when Claudia can’t stay away and comes back to see Shep. There’s a bond between them that there isn’t a term for. And they both seem hesitant to fell to it but the trust is there and they go for it!

With the drama of the small town getting to them and each of their pasts coming to the surface… this made for just one fantastic read! I devoured it in a handful of hours and I sincerely hope that there will be more to come!


34745311.jpg A week-long getaway…

City girl Claudia Cade’s carefree life is plunged into chaos when a camping trip with her brother in the national forests of Northern California turns into a deadly dash for her survival.

A solitary world turned upside down…

Nature photographer Shepard Olsen has resigned himself to a quiet existence, with only his dog by his side, until a woman in need of his protection shows up on his doorstep and throws his universe into disarray.

Two lives linked by tragedy…

Claudia is desperate to heal from her traumatic loss, but can’t stop thinking about her run-in with evil….or the grizzled mountain man whose quick thinking and good aim saved her life. When she shows up on Shep’s doorstep again, she finds she isn’t the only one who can’t move on.

…saved by bliss.

The two begin an intense, passionate relationship of Dominance and submission, pleasure and pain, but with dark memories haunting them and decisions about the future rapidly approaching, Claudia can’t help but wonder…how long can they be each other’s haven?

*** WARNING: This book contains a sexual relationship between a fashionista and a cranky mountain man who are dealing with physical and emotional trauma. And a very big, cuddly dog.***

LOVE ME AGAIN – A Jaci Burton Review & Excerpt

IMG_1452.JPG

Jaci Burton knows how to write the most heartfelt love stories that make you feel all the warmth inside!

Anyone who’s read the Hope Series knows that Deacon and Loretta have a past that neither are too keen to speak on. Slowly their lives have been inching closer and closer once again. Fate has a funny way of showing you when the time is just right.

Loretta has a heart of gold and wants to make all those around her happy, even if it costs her a future she always wanted with Deacon. After being gone for years and finally having the strength to leave a marriage that was tearing her down, she finds herself back in the cross-hairs of Deacon Fox: the love of her teenage years.

Deacon’s kept women at an arm’s length ever since his girl broke his heart in high school. Now that Loretta is back, he’s not sure how to feel, or how to stay away when her adorable daughter eases her way into his heart just as easily as Loretta had years ago.

Second-chance romances are one of my favorite tropes. I love any story line where the hero and heroine have history that sets the groundwork for their adult lives to finally mesh. Loretta and Deacon have an inevitable pull to one another that will have you gripping each page with giddy excitement!


31566736.jpg In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Don’t Let Go, it’s never too late for a second chance at first love…

When Loretta Simmons returns to Hope, Oklahoma, after a disastrous marriage, she’s determined to remain independent for the sake of her daughter. The only thing standing in her way is Deacon Fox—the man she loved and walked away from years ago.

Since Loretta owns the bookstore right next to his current renovation project, Deacon can’t escape the woman who broke his heart. Throw in her adorable little girl and one ridiculously oversized dog, and they’re almost a family. Only he can’t be that guy—what they had was once in a lifetime.

But love has a funny way of re-opening a door you thought was firmly closed…

phonto.jpg

Molly O’Keefe: queen of all things dark, gritty, and dangerous.

Baby Come Back (which, fun fact, I got to name!) follows in tandem with Bad Neighbor. We finally get to meet Abby, the in sister to Charlotte, who we know is on the run from bad boy Jack with quite the dilemma.

Little do we know that Jack isn’t the bad man that Bad Neighbor seemed to make him! Oh my god does he have a heart of gold! Abby knows from the moment she sets eyes of Jack that he’s a manshe can’t stay away from.

Jack knows that Abby is everything he’s wanted, and could never had. When the two spend an unforgettable weekend together it seems that that future is finally within Jack’s grasp.

But when the “mob-like” bosses that have held Jack under their thumbs for years bring Abby into a terrifying reality, all bets are off. Abby got son the run, fearing for her life while touring for the future she thought she could have had with Jack.

A Jack knows he’ll do whatever it takes, even shedding the bad boy skin he’s grown in to, to get her back. Especially when he finds out that she’s pregnant with his child and the family he’d dreamed of one day having is just beyond his fingertips.


33123121 A MAN WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE

I sold my soul a long time ago to pay my father’s debts. Now my life is a prison: no friends. No family. Nothing it would hurt to lose.

I never should’ve touched Abby. I tried not to, but she is beautiful, magnetic, sexy. Everything I want but can’t let myself have.

UNTIL HE MET HER

She seduced me not knowing who I was or what I really do in the shadows. I should have resisted her, but I wanted to be the man Abby thought I was for as long as I could.

But all debts must be paid, sooner or later. And mine are paid with blood.

Now Abby knows who I am, what I am, and she’s run from me.

I would have let her go for her own good. But when I find out she’s carrying my baby — there’s nowhere she can hide…

***************************

Baby, Come Back is a full-length contemporary romance and the sequel to Bad Neighbor.

PAYBACK – A Christina Phillips Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway!

IMG_1489.JPG

Ooooh are bad boy MC romances the dirty kind of fun.

Amelia is on a mission to take down the man who’s father murdered her own…only she didn’t count on him being so goregous, and sexy..and sweet. Gage has a rule: he doesn’t mess with the girls that work in his bar. But one look at Amelia and he knows it’s game over: she’s his.

These two are hot-hot-hot! Gage is bad boy to the core and oh does he bring that to the bedroom when it comes to Amelia. He’ll do and say anything to get her to fall for him. He should know better, that people aren’t always what they seem.

When Amelia realizes she’s been taken for a fool by one of Gage’s enemies, she’s stunned at Gage’s violent reaction to learning her truth. If she can learn to forgive Gage for his family’s past, how will he learn to forgiver her for wanting payback?

Hot hot hot read and definitely filled with edge-of-the-seat tension! I hope there will be more of these Viking bikers!


Payback500.jpg

Gage…

I don’t fuck girls who work for me, but as soon as Amelia turns those big green eyes on me I know she’s trouble. I can’t keep my hands off her, and the almost-but-not-quite-sex we share in the kitchen is the hottest thing I’ve ever had. Except she calls it quits, before we’ve even started.

Instead of moving on, she’s all I can think about and that’s bad news. I’m breaking all my rules for her, and don’t even care.

Until I find out who she is and what she really wants. She’s after payback, but there’s no way she’s going to get it. No way in hell…

EXCERPT

I trace the outline of her ear and those three irresistible hoops. She gives a little shiver but still doesn’t grab hold of me. Guess it’s time to ease her mind on things.

I move in closer, and she steps back until she’s flat against the larder door.

“What happens between us tonight doesn’t affect your job. You understand?”

“You mean if I knee your nuts, you won’t fire me?”

Instinctively, I cradle my junk. “That wasn’t my first thought.”

Her smile damn near takes my breath away. “I bet it wasn’t. I know exactly what you’re thinking.”

“Is that right?” I’m sure my package is safe so I twist a length of her hair around my finger. It’s as soft and silky as I imagined. “What’s that, then?”

“I think you’re trying to get inside my thong.”

The image of Amelia in nothing but a sexy thong fills my head. “You got a problem with that?”

“Yeah. It’s not happening.”

My gaze drops to her mouth. “Wanna bet?”

“I don’t need to bet. I’m telling you. All you get tonight is a kiss.”

Chicks don’t lay down the law to me. But then again, I’ve never been with a girl who confuses me as much as Amelia. If she wants to leave, she could easily walk away. I won’t stop her. But she stands there, like she’s daring me to take me up on her offer.

A kiss.

I give her a mocking smile. “You’ll want more than a kiss from me.”

She doesn’t answer right away, and I hide my smirk of victory as I lean in to claim her mouth. Her head tilts to the side, evading me, which is both frustrating and oddly fascinating.

“It doesn’t matter what I want. A kiss is my best offer. Take it or leave it.”

Despite the throb between my legs, I have the crazy urge to laugh. “That’s your best offer? You sure you don’t want me to go down on you?”

For a second I swear she’s about say yes, but then she hitches in a ragged breath. “Totally sure. Keep your head right where it is.”

No chick has ever refused that offer before, and the way she’s so desperately trying to hide how turned on she is makes me grin. “Okay. But I’ll only kiss you on one condition.”

“Huh?” She sounds drunk, and blinks at me like everything’s out of focus. “You have a condition?”

“It’s only fair.”

She stares at me as though I’ve lost my mind. I think I fucking have. Not that I care, since crazy as this all is, I’ve never had as much fun hooking up before.

Finally, she speaks. “What is it?”

“I can use my hands on you.” I wave my fingers in her face and she glances at them as though she has no idea what I’m talking about.

“Okay.” There’s a cautious note in her voice as though she thinks it’s some kind of trick. “But that’s all. Just your hands.”

That’s all I need.

JOY RIDE – A Lauren Blakely Review, Excerpt & Giveaway!

IMG_5FC84E7404F3-1.jpeg

OH MAN! Have I been on an enemies-to-lovers kick for a bit now. But there is no one that does romantic comedies quite like Lauren Blakely.

The whit and tension between Henley and Max is absolutely dripping on every page. Of course these two are hot..and mechanics…but put them in a room together with some hot cars and *BOOM!* combustion!

I love how well Blakely write the male POV with her romances. It’s quite a refreshing style from typical romances. Her teases in between each chapter for Henley’s “To Do” lists were hysterical!!

Not only do these two seem to have a healthy banter between them but seeing how Max slowly begins to realize that he always was seeing Henley in a (let’s say romantic) romantic light was a trip. He’s always known that she’s whip smart and would one day be a killer mechanic and builder. Watching their relationship grow alongside their professional one was so damn cute!

I have no more words except that if you are looking for some great fun, hard laughs, and sexy scenes then go for the ride of your LIFE and order your copy NOW!

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood…for the best joy ride of your life.

I’m at your service. Ready to go all night long.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can’t quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.

“If I was going to place a bet on an author to consistently deliver a FANTASTIC romance time and time again, I would put all my money on Lauren Blakely. She always writes amazing comedic romances—they are sexy, entertaining and always original. Consider me a fangirl.”

~Mary, Harlequin Junkie


 EXCERPT:

Henley Rose and a hot car go together like peaches and cream, like fine Scotch and a long, dirty night. Which means working with her was like walking into the Garden of Eden every single day. It was a test of willpower because the woman could craft a car as if it were an erotic dance. 

Not a striptease. 

Not an in-your-face pelvis thrust. 

But a beautiful fucking ballet of a woman seducing machine. Those hands, the way she wielded tools, the intensity in her focus—it was sensual, and it was sinful, and it was this man’s fantasy made flesh. 

Imagine what it was like working with her for one, hard-on year. 

I mean, hard year. 

I survived the challenge because she had talent to spare. And I never treated her differently because she was a woman, or because I thought about her naked an obscene amount of the time. I treated her like anyone else—specifically, all the people I work with who I never ever imagine in anything less than full-on Siberian winter garb, complete with the thermals and Michelin Man coat. 

“Black heart still intact.” I tap my sternum. “Same model as before.”

“I’d have thought you’d get an upgrade by now. Faulty parts and all.”

“No recall needed on the ticker. It works just fine in this cruel bastard.” I say, reminding her of the words she’d uttered the day she stormed out.

She arches a brow. “Shame. You should have let me replace it. I’m good at making all sorts of clunkers run better.”

Jesus Christ. She still takes no prisoners. “I’ve no doubt you have all the tools to fix anything, and if you couldn’t find the right one, you’d use a blowtorch.”

She adopts an expression of indignation. “There’s nothing wrong with using a blowtorch,” she says, taking extra time on the first syllable.

How the hell did I ever last with this woman? Before I can even fashion a comeback, she taps her toe against the tire on Wagner’s car. “I see you still like to make your cars with big, manly wheels.”

I roll my eyes then make a give it to me now motion with my hands. “All right, Henley. Deliver the punchline.”

She bats her lashes. “What punchline?”

“Big? Manly? You’re going to say it’s some sort of compensation thing going on. That’s what you always said about the guys who wanted the biggest cars with the biggest wheels.”

She smirks. “Was I wrong in my assessment?”

I laugh. “I don’t know. I didn’t check to see how that added up for them.”

“Nor did I. My focus was always on the work.”

 “As well it should have been.”

“That’s what you taught me.”

“I’m glad you learned that lesson.”

 “I learned so many lessons from you.”


carparts_availablenow.png

“At some points during my read, I would have to remind myself to breathe. I was so utterly consumed with what I was reading, with the compelling chemistry between Henley and Max . . . The S. E. X. Was. Soooooo HOTT. I’d argue it was Blakely’s best writing by far.”

~Jess at joandisalovebooks


 

 

“The dynamic between Max and Henley is addictive, and the story line in Joy Ride was down right juicy! I can’t wait for you to read it.”

WICKED ABYSS – A Kresley Cole Review

Kresley Cole is the true queen of all this supernatural!

Wicked Abyss is her latest in the Immortals after Dark series. We’ve spent years watching as Nix weaves the future and past together preparing for The Ascension. In this tale we see into the mind of the treacherous King of Hell, Abyssian. Little do we know that Nix has another secret up her sleeve: a story of a fairy princess and wicked temptress.

Meet Calliope, princess of the fey land of Sylvan. All she’s dreamed of is protecting her people and having the family she’s always dreamed of. But when he betrothed, the king of Sylvan, and the Ever-Knowing Valkyrie put together a plot to take down Sylvan’s true enemy, the demonic King Sian, Calliope truly has no idea what she’s bargained for.

Trapped in Hell with the brutish warlord, secrets of Calliope and Abyssian’s pasts come to light.

Cole did such an amazing job weaving together Nix’s story with Calliope’s past life and her future one. This truly is the perfect mixture of Beauty and the Beast meets Hades and Persephone. Abbysian is one of the sexiest demons ever… and good gods do I love that man! I’ve loved the IAD series from the start and Cole seems to get better with each step closer to the Ascension! Can’t wait for the next tale!


 

29760149.jpg This fairy tale doesn’t end with a kiss… A spellbinding Immortals After Dark tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole!

The terrifying king of hell…

As a boy, Abyssian “Sian” Infernas had his heart shattered by a treacherous fey beauty who died before he could exact vengeance. Millennia later, a curse has transformed him into a demonic monster—just as she’s been reincarnated. Sian captures the delicate but bold female, forcing her back to hell.

Meets his match.

Princess Calliope “Lila” Barbot’s people have hated and feared Abyssian and his alliance of monsters for aeons. When the beastly demon imprisons her in his mystical castle, vowing revenge for betrayals she can’t remember, Lila makes her own vow: to bring down the wicked beast for good.

Can two adversaries share one happily-ever-after?

As Calliope turns hell inside out, the all-powerful Sian finds himself defenseless against his feelings for her. In turn, Lila reluctantly responds to the beast’s cleverness and gruff vulnerability. But when truths from a far distant past are revealed, can their tenuous bond withstand ages of deceit, a curse, and a looming supernatural war?

About Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, 4/25/17)

Maverick Rylan won’t apologize for who he is—the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he’ll move heaven and earth to save her.

Alexa Harmon thought she had it all—the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she’s fallen for a façade she can’t escape—until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.

Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance—one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn’t going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.

RIDE ROUGH - Teaser 3

EXCERPT FROM RIDE ROUGH:

“I want you. Feels like I’ve been wanting you my whole life.” Alexa peered up at him, her eyes so vibrant they were nearly green.

Maverick pulled back, her words hitting him in all kinds of places, some comfortable, some even healing, but some less so. “You can’t toy with me, Alexa. Not when I’ve wanted you for so long. Not when I never wanted to let you go in the first place. This . . . this can just be fucking. But don’t you dare say anything you don’t mean.”

She stroked his hair. “Truth?”

He gave a tight nod and prepared for the worst, even as he hoped for a shot.

“Truth is, I don’t know what this means. Yet. I am so messed up right now. I’m not even going to hide that. But . . .” She tilted her head, and her expression was filled with something Mav didn’t want to name, but it sure as hell looked like affection. “But I know I want this. I want you, Maverick. Right now. And wanting you feels like one of the smartest decisions I’ve made in forever. Everything else be damned.” Her voice was shaky and breathy and her words were so full of dangerous, dangerous hope that Maverick didn’t dare move.

His muscles nearly shook with the force of his restraint, because his body was literally screaming at him. Screaming at him to just let go. “Fuck, Alexa.”

“I don’t want to hurt you. I never wanted to hurt you. But I want you. I want you inside me right now more than I want my next breath.”

Even though his mind was rolling out a list of all the reasons why this was a no good what the fuck are you thinking very bad idea, Maverick’s body grabbed the reins. On a groan, he went in for a kiss, rougher than he intended, but the moan she unleashed when his mouth crashed down on hers told him she didn’t mind. They fumbled with clothes. Her boxers. His jeans. Until they were both naked and pressed tight, all hot skin on skin, and his cock ground against her soft folds until she was mewling and writhing and silently pleading with the rough, desperate grip of her hands on his shoulders, his back, his ass.

A big part of Maverick wanted to pick Alexa up and carry her to his bed—where his heart said she belonged—but this wasn’t about that. At least not yet, and he wasn’t giving either of them any more time to think than he already had.

He needed her too damn bad. Just this once. In case that’s all it was.
