ENTICE ME


From New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner comes a sensually seductive novella starring fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild.

Includes a special preview of Anchor Me, the highly anticipated fourth full-length novel featuring Nikki & Damien as they begin the next chapter in their life together.

I didn’t understand passion until I met Damien, the man who turned my world upside down and swept me off my feet.

And though our life together feels perfect, we can’t escape our secrets--and the danger that continually threatens to surface.

But for one night, I seek a respite. A birthday wish for my husband, my lover, my friend—one absolutely perfect night.

It is my most ardent wish.

And I only hope that it will come true…

Excerpt

He bends down so that his lips graze my ear. “Dance for me, baby. Right now.”
”Is that what you want?” I ask. “To watch me dance? Because I have something else in mind.”

His brow rises. “Do you?”

“Mmm,” I say, then start humming as I pull out my phone and find my current favorite song on my workout playlist. A little fast. A little raunchy. A lot fun. I click the button to send it through our sound system, and when the music starts, I press my hand to Damien’s chest and jauntily strut forward, forcing him backward to the padded bench that is intended as a place to sit and wait for the elevator. Right now, I have a different purpose in mind.

“I’ll dance,” I say, doing a shimmy and pulling off my T-shirt in the process. “I’ll even do a stripper dance,” I add. “But I don’t do solo shows. I require full participation.”

“Do you?”

“Absolutely,” I say, turning around so that my back is to him as I shake and shimmy in time with the music and very, very slowly ease my skirt off.

When I turn around, I’m dressed only in my bra and panties, and though I should feel silly, I don’t. Maybe it’s the alcohol. Maybe it’s the lingering high from fucking him in the limo. Maybe it’s the heated way that he’s watching my every move.

Maybe it’s the simple fact that I love my husband.

Whatever the reason, I’m enjoying showing off, turning him on and getting turned on in the process. And as I think that, I slide one hand over my bra and the other down my abdomen to cup myself over my panties.

I have my eyes closed, and the music’s loud, but I still hear Damien’s sharp intake of breath. I figure that’s as good a cue as any, and I open my eyes and strut toward him, then reach out a hand to pull him up.

He complies, amused, and I do my own version of a pole dance, with Damien playing the role of my pole. Up and down, stroking and teasing, shimmying and shaking. It’s a little erotic and a little silly, and by the time I have my bra off and am about to step out of my panties, I’m both desperately wet and giggling furiously.

I bend over to untangle my panties from around my ankle, and when I do, my giggles turn to squeals as Damien scoops me up and tosses me over his shoulder. I pound uselessly on his back, then cry out when he pitches me unceremoniously onto the bed.

“What are you--?”

“Shhh.” He puts his finger over his mouth, then strips off his own clothes. And though he doesn’t add any dance moves, I can’t deny that I enjoy the show.

Slowly, he eases onto the bed and straddles me. “I liked your dance,” he says. “I like even more that you did it because I told you I wanted it.”

“Anything you want,” I whisper, my voice throaty. “You know that.”

“I want you,” he says, then brushes a kiss over my lips.

Kim's 5 Star Review

I love catching up with Damien and Nikki.  They are one of the book couples I just can’t get enough of. So when I saw that J. Kenner was coming out with another novella I had to get my hands on it.  I was a lucky one who was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

Damien’s birthday is coming and Nikki wants to do the impossible, surprise Damien with a party in his honour.  Her friends thinks she’s going to be disappointed when Damien isn’t surprised.  The problem with trying to surprise Damien is actually making it a surprise.  The bond between Damien and Nikki gives Damien the ability to read Nikki easily which is why Nikki has to put on her best poker face to pull off the surprise.

I think it’s awe-inspiring how much Damien and Nikki love each other and how they will do anything to for each other.  They have this incredible unbreakable bond that cements them to each other on every level. It’s the kind a relationship that attract amazing and loyal friends who become more like family.  Nikki knows she can count on them to help make the impossible, possible. 


In the last novella I felt J. Kenner left us with many unanswered questions and had me guessing who was did it.  Some of those questions were answered throughout this novella and it left me surprised who was behind it, who helped out and why.  I love that Nikki was the one who took charge and fixed the issue. If you ever thought Nikki would just sit back and let Damien handle things like this as if she was damsel in distress, then you thought wrong. She not only took charge but came up with the perfect plan to pull off the surprise party while taking care of the issues at hand. In my opinion Nikki handled herself with poise and elegance while making the best of the situation.  Damien and Nikki may have separate haunted pasts but they make the most of what they have together in the present and work towards a future together that leaving me anticipating the up-coming release of Anchor Me, the next chapter in Nikki’s and Damien’s life.

Tell Me A Fantasy Synopsis

Samantha Citrouille’s anxiety won’t stop her from attending London Fashion Week and collecting a lifetime industry award. After all, when iconic designer Karl Lagerfield requests your presence at an exclusive party, you have to jump on a plane. Even if you’re deathly afraid of flying.

While white-knuckling it on the turbulent flight from Florida, Samantha's seated in business class next to a handsome stranger named Colin. His low, smooth voice helps calm her nerves. But her panic reaches its peak when the plane is forced to land in Iceland due to mechanical failure. Distraught, she's horrified to discover that all hotels are booked due to a summer solstice festival. As the world’s top designer of tropical resort clothing, Samantha _ known as Sam C. to her legions of fans _ is used to luxury at her Palm Beach estate, not sleeping on airport benches with only a pashmina wrap for a blanket.

Her impossibly sexy seat-mate Colin kindly offers to share his accommodations, because a business contact owns a sleek pied-à-terre in Reykjavik. Samantha, emotionally wrung out, agrees for what she thinks is one quick night.

A freak volcano eruption forces Samantha and Colin to stay in the Icelandic capitol for a long weekend, and the two have nothing better to do than share cocktails, bare their past sins in conversation, and indulge in each other under the midnight sun. 


But things become complicated after their idyllic fantasy weekend together. Colin, a self-described modern-day rake, is sure he’s finally found the woman of his dreams. But Samantha, who has her own fears and ghosts of the past, isn’t so certain. She'd rather fly around the world, twice, than have her heart broken again.

Excerpt

“And did you just call me arrogant, Samantha?”

I smirked and looked at a few more tank tops in the drawer. “I did call you arrogant. Because it’s true. I get the distinct impression that you think my business is frivolous. Especially compared to yours.”

Colin unzipped his sleek, black suitcase, which reminded me of my own lost luggage.

“I think fashion is frivolous. I don’t think your business is frivolous. Big difference.”

With a mirthful grin, he walked toward me. My heartbeat rose as he came closer. He held a change of clothes in his hand, and I reached to flip the waistband of the pants in his hand so I could look at the tag. As I suspected. Designer loungewear.

“Then perhaps you know nothing about fashion. But by the looks of your suit and these $200 track pants made out of a cashmere and virgin fleece-wool blend, you do have excellent taste.”

“They’re not track pants. They’re sweatpants. Manly sweatpants.”

I rolled my eyes dramatically. “Call them what you want. I know all about the loungewear line because the designer’s a friend. And I had the women’s version in white. In my stupid, lost suitcase that’s on another continent.”

Colin studied my face with an amused smile, and I felt a flood of heat, starting in my face, traveling down my neck, across my chest and into points below.

“Well, at least we can agree on one thing.” He tossed the pants on the bed.

“What’s that?”

We stood at the foot of the bed and stared at each other, the current between us crackling and popping.

“My excellent taste.”

“You’re a bit insufferable, you know that?” I took a tiny step to the side, closer to the bed.

“I’ve heard that before.” He stepped forward a few inches, and the cocksure smile on his face remained.

I didn’t move, because I didn’t want to. “I’m sure you have.” I was certain he’d heard many platitudes and promises and problems from a lot of women. I wondered who’d picked out his clothes. The way he’d said the word taste reverberated in my mind and made my entire body feel flush.

“So let’s get back to that evening entertainment idea. I’d love to hear your thoughts on that,” he murmured. His eyes scanned my face and landed on my mouth.

Release Blitz for Badd Ass by Jasinda Wilder

baddass-e-book

I was a Sixty-Eight Whiskey—a combat medic. So when I hear someone shout “MEDIC!” training just kicks in. It’s automatic, immediate. I don’t think I even saw the guy whose leg I tended to, not really. All I saw was him. Zane Badd. His tuxedo fit him like he’d been sewn into it, and his eyes reflected the fury and the hardness of a combat veteran, but when he looked at me, he just…softened. By the time I had his brother patched, Zane and I were both covered in blood, and I knew I had to have him.

The trouble with Zane isn’t getting him, it’s keeping him. And the trouble with me is, even if I could hold onto a man like Zane, I wouldn’t know what to do with him. It’s not in my nature, and if life has taught me anything, it’s to not trust anyone, least of all men like Zane. He’s a warrior through and through, hard, muscular, gorgeous, tenacious, and yet oddly tender toward me. Experience and instincts are telling me to run from Zane Badd as fast as possible, but my heart and my body are telling me to stay, to hold on and not let go. Yeah, it’s a conflict as old as humanity itself, but it’s brand new for me.

  * * *

Life as Navy SEAL doesn’t exactly prepare you for normality. Yeah, I can tend bar and goof off with my seven crazy brothers, but what do I do when the woman of my dreams—dreams I didn’t know I’d had until I saw her—explodes into my life like a frag grenade? I’m trained to attack, to win, to survive at any costs, and figuring out what to do about a woman like Amarantha Quinn will take every scrap of tenacity and courage I possess. Combat is easy, it turns out, in comparison to facing your own fears and scars. And then sometimes, just when you think you’ve got it finally figured out, fate throws you a screwball and sends everything FUBAR.

Cover Reveal for Dear Agony by Georgia Cates

Cover Reveal Banner _1


  Dear Agony eBook Cover
DEAR AGONY: A NOVEL
By: Georgia Cates
Release Day: March 1, 2017


Dear Agony,

You've been my shadow, following me through childhood—filling my days and nights with terror and uncertainty. You cleverly disguised yourself as some form of pain or suffering as I grew into a young woman. We were unwavering companions … until I severed our ties.

I traded homelessness on the streets of New Orleans for a luxurious bed covered by the finest linens.
I traded dumpster diving for dinner in the finest restaurants.
I traded myself to a stranger—Bastien Pascal.

I have a good life within my platonic and mutually beneficial companionship with Bash.
He’s my friend. My mentor. My roommate.
Until everything changes.

I’m not supposed to get goosebumps when his hand brushes my skin.
I’m not supposed to be eager for his soothing touch following one of my nightmares.
I’m not supposed to think about what might happen if I reached out to him in the darkness.

Falling in love with him? Preposterous . . . unavoidable.

Agony, why are you back with a vengeance to rob me of this life I’ve come to love so dearly?

I’m finally happy. Don’t ruin this for me.

Always yours,
Rose


In this epic love story, Dear Agony forges a connection between an unlikely pair—a beautiful rose entwined in barbed wire and a shipwreck sinking into the darkest depths of the ocean. This agonizing romantic novel poses some gut-wrenching questions: What does a woman do when the man she loves is planning his own demise? And how far will she go to give him something to live for?
