Excerpt

Copyright @ A.M. Williams 2020

We both moaned when my center came in contact with his erection. Even through two layers of clothing, it was a heady feeling. I undulated my hips on top of him as we continued to make out, slowing working us both into a frenzy. Zeke ripped his mouth away from mine. “We need to go inside.” I nodded even though I wasn’t sure what he was saying. I was too focused on pulling his lips back to mine. “Delaney,” he said between kisses. “Let’s go in.” He gently pushed me away and stood. I pouted as I stood too. He quickly got out and wrapped his towel around his hips before helping me out and hangin me my towel. I quickly dried off and walked inside, the head of the cabin beckoning to me. Once inside, I didn’t waste any time dropping my towel and stripping out of my bathing suit, leaving me naked. I turned to face Zeke and watched as he drew the curtains. I got a great view of his face when he turned around and realized I was already naked. “Hot damn,” he muttered and tossed his own towel to the side. His finger immediately starting working the laces of his bathing suit while his gaze raked over my body. I used the opportunity to look at him as well. My heart ssped up at the thought of everything coming together right now. I’d wanted this for so long and now that it was happening, it was surreal, and I wanted to remember every part of it. Every kiss. Every caress. Every whispered word. I wanted them all. Zeke’s bathing suit dropped, and my gaze immediately zeroed in on his dick, which was pointing toward the ceiling. I whimpered as I looked at it. Moisture was beading on the tip, and it looked like the perfect dick. Especially since it was attached to the perfect man. A few minutes later, we were parked outside the cabin, and Zeke had our bags in hand while I swiped the keycard for the room. It took several tries to get the lock to open, something that annoyed me to no end. After discovering everything with the reservation, the door not working was just one more thing to add to the list of why I was upset with my life. Once the door was open, I stepped to the side and allowed Zeke to go in first before flicking the light switch by the door and letting the door fall shut behind me. I turned toward the main part of the cabin and drew up short when I noticed Zeke standing frozen with the bags still in his hands. “What’s wrong?” I asked, walking closer. “Uhh…” Zeke said, shifting his weight from side to side. “Is there supposed to be only one bed?” I cringed. I didn’t tell him what happened with the reservation while we were in the car. He deserved to know that I hadn’t changed it like I told him I would. “Well…I didn’t realize until I went to check in that I forgot to call them to let them know that the reservation needed to be changed. I couldn’t change it today because it was too late.” Silence greeted my words, and I worried my bottom lip and dropped my gaze to the floor. “I’m really sorry,” she said when Zeke continued to say nothing. “I thought I’d called, and I didn’t. I can’t believe that I forgot to do that simple thing. Don’t even get me started on the excursions we have booked because—” I jumped when Zeke pressed a finger to my chin and tilted my head up. He was grinning. “Don’t worry about it. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to sleep in the same bed as the Delaney Carrigan.” My face heated. “Oh, uh…” “Come on!” Zeke said, pulling me into a hug. “It’ll be fine. Nothing to worry your pretty little head about.” He released me and turned back to pick the bags up and stepped further into the room. With him out of the way, I could see what gave him pause. It wasn’t just the single king-size bed in the room. It was the rose petals that were littered all over the bedcovers and on the floor. They were everywhere. As I stepped closer to the bed, I cringed as I realized they were even in the shape of a heart with a small card in the center. Though I knew I shouldn’t, I picked it up. It read “Congratulations on your marriage!” I stared at it for several long moments, my mind flashing back to when Josh told me he couldn’t marry me. “Whatcha got in your hand?” Zeke asked. Before I could crumple the card, Zeke plucked it from my fingers. I watched as his expression darkened. “Fuck him.” He ripped the card in half, then ripped it again before tossing the pieces in the air. I watched them flutter toward the floor. “You’re better off without that douche-canoe. Seriously. What guy breaks up with the supposed love of his life only days before their wedding? Asswads, that’s who. Don’t waste another minute worried about him.” I nodded. What could I say to that? It wasn’t anything I didn’t already know and that Zeke and my family hadn’t already said. Josh was an asshole of the first order for what he did to me. It didn’t make it hurt any less, though. “Right, let’s get unpacked and look over what we’ve got going on this week. Maybe we can add some things to do instead of what we’ve got on there. What do you say?” I nodded and felt myself relax. “Sounds good.” Zeke turned and grabbed his bag, unzipping it while I stood there, frozen. While he’d made me feel better about the rose petals and the asshole ex-fiancĂ©, we hadn’t addressed the elephant in the room: the single bed. Yeah, Zeke joked that he’d always wanted to sleep in the same bed as me, but I knew he said that to make me feel better. How were we going to make this work?

TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Outlook For Earthlings

 

About The Outlook for Earthlings

  • Paperback: 237 pages
  • Publisher: Regal House Publishing (October 2, 2020)
The Outlook For Earthlings traces a difficult friendship across a lifetime. Melanie Taper is rule-bound, timid, self-erasing. Yet in unguarded moments she demonstrates such deadly insight into human foibles as to suggest a strength that has, for dark reasons, deliberately hidden itself lifelong. Scarlet Rand is rash, willful, abrasive—vexed by “demure” traits and “small fussing motions.” Shocked by Mel’s passivity and near-archaic saintliness, Scarlet disbelieves it. Their friendship suggests to each a final frontier, a saving sanctuary. Yet at its core each woman takes a secret, moral offense at the other’s inmost nature—and her choices. Against the deadline of the illness which is slowly destroying one of them, a reckoning must occur. The Outlook for Earthlings considers the limits of friendship—and of witnessing. It asks how we may finally measure a life—and who should do the measuring. Social Media Please use the hashtag #theoutlookforearthlings, and tag @tlcbooktours.

Review: I'm not going to say that The Outlook for Earthlings was a disappointment might be a bit harsh, but I will say it wasn't quite what I expected. I wanted something otherworldly. I knew it was women's fiction, but I thought there would be something special about this book

Sadly I couldn't find anything that I could construe as special

This story focuses on two friends, Mel and Scarlet who couldn't be more different. The main focus is on Mel, who is essentially a big ole doormat. She has such promise as the story starts. She is a wonderful actress and yet she is quiet and reserved, the opposite of her friend Scarlet.

Then she throws it all away to marry Richard. I kind of went all WTF is wrong with you, when she  married this guy. I mean this was the late 60s early 70s. Women were getting liberated then and she walked into this horrid relationship and she's a smart talented woman and she let's this jerk treat her the way he does.

This story is really Mel's more than Scarlet's. Truthfully I don't remember much about Scarlet other than she's Mel's friend who is there for her when she moves back home due to illness.

Oh and Mel moves back home to be with someone. 

And can we get another ARGH for that relationship that was more frustrating that her marriage.

Really Mel? At the beginning of the book I thought, wow, the mousey little girl is going to go somewhere and do something.

At the end of the book, Mel felt like a doormat and a wasted life.

If you take away anything from reading this book, it should be, don't be like Mel.

Forever Write PR Cover Reveal: Game Winning Goal

 

The final book in the beloved 425 Madison Ave is nearly here! Check out the amazing cover for GAME WINNING GOAL by Kay Gordon, a must-read sports romance!

Cheyenne

Life was good. I had a great job, amazing people surrounding me, season tickets to see my favorite hockey team play, and a cat that I could cuddle. Although it didn’t seem glamorous, I was happy. But when the shy, handsome, and somewhat awkward hockey player slid into my life, I realized that I could be happier. I wanted to be more than just content with life.

Kamden

I knew I wanted to be a hockey player from the moment I put on my first pair of skates. I played

hard for the Titans, proving that I belonged on the top line. But just when I finally made it, an injury took me out of the game. While feeling sorry for myself and waiting to heal, I met the bubbly, beautiful, and smart pediatrician who brought me to my knees. She made me see that there was more to life than scoring goals. A love of the game helps bring these two together and onto a path towards a different kind of love.

Cheyenne and Kamden’s road isn’t as smooth as ice, though. What happens when Kam’s recovery isn’t easy and his position on the team is threatened? Cheyenne has to figure out how to break down his defense and Kam has to realize that he might not always be the one to score the game-winning goal.

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

We are so excited to share the cover for the upcoming release, Love on the Rocks by Kim Bailey. Check out the sexy cover for Love on the Rocks, a must-read workplace romance from the upcoming Holiday Springs Resort series!

Melina Morales is a good girl.

A hardworking, ambitious, follows-all-the-rules girl. Maybe that’s why her coworkers call her the ice queen. She might care if it weren’t for the looming pile of debt and her family’s dependence on her. But with her dream job on the line, she’s determined to succeed, no matter the sacrifice.

There’s just one tiny, six-foot-something problem. . . Zane Wilder is a bad boy.

The Holiday Springs bartender is the guy everyone turns to for a good time—especially the women. Except lately he’s been unsatisfied. Maybe it’s got something to do with the drunken kiss he shared with Melina, but since he’s not interested in commitment, he figures there’ll never be a chance to find out.

When Melina agrees to one date in return for a favor, they both quickly realize there’s something between them. But it’s going to take Zane a lot more than his fun-loving ways and easy charm to convince the good girl to give him a serious shot. This time, he’ll have to risk his heart. Escape to the romantic paradise of Holiday Springs and warm up with your next happily ever after.

Excerpt

Copyright 2020 @ Mel Walker

I was right. The heat has already caused him to peel off his hoodie. I’m mesmerized at his muscles popping and straining against his tight T-shirt. He approaches quickly, too quickly. I try to hide the fact that I’ve been staring at him by slinking into the dark corner, but he rushes up and turns the corner quicker than I expected.

Our bodies collide. My green juice spatters between our chests, the cool liquid causing an instant mess. My gaze lowers to his broad, muscled chest as the liquid begins to blend into his dark T-shirt.

“Fudge,” I whisper and close my eyes, knowing my choice of an all-white outfit for a move is my latest epic fail. I have no one to blame but myself.

I feel the warm tingle of his finger as he lifts my chin slowly. I force open my eyes to meet his soft, sympathetic gaze.

“Sorry about that, Princess. I don’t know how I missed seeing you when it’s clearly the best sight here.”

I blink and try to process his words. “Poppy,” I whisper.

“Yeah, I know,” he returns.

“But you called me Princess.”

He takes a small step back as the liquid from the juice drips down my chest to my shorts and makes its way down my legs.

He whips his T-shirt off in a flash and uses the shirt like a rag, pressing it against my legs in order to stop the progress of the juice before it reaches my white Converse sneakers. “Poppy is too ordinary. You deserve to be called Princess. Princess P, it shall be.”

The insane statement is delivered like a proclamation.

Excerpt

copyright @ Marcie Shumway 2020

“No man is ever going to be good enough for my little girl,” he whispered huskily. “But Travis is pretty damn close.”

I laughed lightly and rolled my eyes to the ceiling to ward off the waterworks. With a soft kiss to my cheek, my father released my hands and moved to my side. Looping my arm through his, I used the other hand to pick up my dress, so it didn’t drag as we walked down the stairs. With a nod of satisfaction that everyone was ready, my mother ushered the girls out with the exception of Anna and led the way down the hall. My father and I followed with my cousin on my heels, making sure the train on the dress stayed off the floor.

My face hurt; my smile was so broad. Everyone around me was as well, and I felt like I was floating on a cloud. We reached the stairs, and I kept my eyes on my feet, so I didn’t trip, allowing my father to lead me. When I reached the bottom, I looked up and found Max, the best man, waiting at the back door with a look on his face that I couldn’t identify. Confusion and concern rolled through me since he should have been at the altar with Travis.

“What’s going…”

“I’m sorry, Kat,” he apologized, cutting my question off.

I gulped.

“Sorry for what?”

My stomach rolled with nausea.

“We can’t find Travis.”

“What do you mean you can’t find him?” I asked, shaking my head.

I felt Anna come to my side and felt her hands grip my elbow while my mother moved to my father’s other side. A united front as we’d been my entire life. It brought little comfort, especially when the next words came out of his mouth.

“He packed a bag and took off,” he explained, tugging gently on his tie. “He won’t answer his phone.”

“His parents?” I choked out.

“His mother left last night, and his father is here, but severely hungover. He doesn’t know where he is either.”

My knees threatened to buckle. This was a mistake. Something must have come up at the office, and he ran late coming back. He would be here. He had to be here. We were getting married.

“This was with my tux.”

The envelope, marked with the bed and breakfast logo, had my name on the front in his clear, concise handwriting. I didn’t fight the tears, I let them flow down my cheeks as I took it from him with a shaky hand. Without letting go of my father, I opened it and pulled out the small piece of paper.

I can’t go through with this. I’m sorry.
