Release Date: October 11, 2017
 

Synopsis

Scarlett St Julien likes her job well enough. Her boss? Total wanker. Even if he is sexy AF. After all, they don’t call him Bradley Walking-Sex for nothing. When Bradley asks her to show him around London, it’s another thing on Scarlett’s task list. At least until the spark between them ignites. And it is H-O-T. It turns out Bradley Walking-Sex is smart and funny, as well as — you guessed it — oh-so-sexy. But he’s still the boss. A fling with him is one thing. Falling for him? Well, that’s not an option. Is it?

About the Author

Brenda is a displaced New Yorker living in the English countryside. She’s lived in the UK long enough to gain dual citizenship, but still doesn’t understand Celsius. However, she has learned the appropriate use of the word “pants”. And how to order a proper bacon bap/barm/buttie. Because, well, bacon. Brenda writes contemporary romance to make you giggle and swoon. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hiking, running and reading. In theory, she also enjoys cooking, but it’s more that she enjoys eating and, try as she might, she can’t live on Doritos alone.

Release Day Blitz: Drawn to Him Anthology
















Drawn to Him website

http://www.drawntohimcollection.com





















There are some men who make you helpless.

You know the kind.  They steal the breath from your lungs and make your heart beat a little faster with a single look.  You can’t stop staring, but the moment they pin those gorgeous eyes on you, you’re done for.

The kind that’s too hard to resist.

This is a collection of men just like that.

Handsome, confident and all for you.


These are the other authors involved with this collection, M. Never, L.J. Shen, K. Webster, Jade West, Isabella Starling, A. Zavarelli and K.L Kreig.









Excerpt from Infatuation by Willow Winters

“You’re very handsome, Mr. Kulls.”  I finally give in to a bit of my desire, and pick up the glass of wine, holding on to it for support in this decision.

His grin widens and he leans forward just slightly to say, “Alec, Lila.  My name is Alec to you.”  He pauses for a moment, then flashes me a smirk and adds, “Unless of course you’d like to scream 'Mr. Kulls' in bed?”

My face heats instantly as he rises from his seat to attend to the beeping oven and he's quick to say, “I do believe Alec may be easier.”

The sweet wine touches my lips and the taste is delicious, but I can’t think of anything other than this man on top of me, making me scream as he thrusts inside of me repeatedly.

“I think you’ve maybe thought a little too far ahead, Mr.- Alec,” I’m quick to correct myself.  I watch as he works in the oven, turning the chicken breasts and then setting the tongs back down on the counter before coming back to his seat.

“Mmm, that could be,” he says picking up his glass, but not sitting.  I cross my ankles and turn in my seat to face him.

“This isn’t very professional,” I tell him with a serious look, or at least the most serious I can manage.  He shrugs his shoulders and then takes a sip from his glass.

“Do you want it to be?” he asks and then adds, “That’s fine if you do.  I understand the attraction may only be on my end.”

My heart thumps hard in my chest.  I don’t think this man knows how to be subtle.  He’s honest and to the point.  But I admire that.

“It’s definitely not just one-sided,” I admit, and then bite my tongue.  I'm thinking I should add that this is dangerous for me.  I could lose my job.  More than that though, this man could crush me.  I’ve never had a one-night stand because I know I don’t really do casual.  I’ve been wined and dined and then thrown away before.  It hurts too much.

I don’t recover easily, and I prefer to avoid relationships.  But it’s been so long since I’ve been touched.

Alec’s deep voice rumbles, “That’s good to know.”  I don’t think a man has ever looked at me with the same level of desire.  It’s tempting and frightening all the same.

“So, tomorrow?” he asks me, and my brow furrows with confusion.

“Tomorrow?” I repeat.

He smiles at me, and the smell of his cologne, or maybe his natural scent hits me with a powerful force that makes me lean in closer to him.

“Would you like to go out with me tomorrow?” he asks.

His gray eyes swirl with a mixture of desire and something else--a desperate need.  I nod my head slowly and say, “I’d love to.”





























Review


Drawn to Him is full of several different types of stories with one shared truth - the powerful men who draw you in and hold you in their grasp.  Each story takes you on a different adventure, from taboo, to unexpected romance, from swoony to dirty, and everything in between. There's something for everyone in this anthology.  Each story will draw you in with it's characters and keep you reading. 

In K. Webster's Malfeasanse, we are treated to a taboo tale of a young woman running from an abusive ex who just happens to be a criminal who finds her savior in a 'too-old-for-her' judge. Max isn't just any old judge though and somehow these two find a deeper connection. 

L.J. Shen offers up a bit of taboo herself with Dr. Dreamy, a tale of the  (almost) new woman caught between a soon to be ex couple who continue to duke it out daily in their joint office building.  With a complicated divorce on the agenda, Dr. Rhys Matthews isn't planning on starting a new relationship - that is until he meets Savannah and is drawn to her in unexpected ways.  It doesn't help that she's around daily working in his office, and he's got it in him to take what he wants.  

K.L Kreig's offering, One Night, brings us the surprising revelation for one woman on just who she left behind when she snuck out of the hotel room following a one night stand. Animosty between two people quickly becomes more when they finally communicate with each other and realize what they found in each other in the past and what they could have for the future.

EXCERPT
Power Struggle by Mari Carr




“That sounds—” Her cell phone rang before she could finish her response. She forced herself to stand, then rummaged through the purse she’d set on his desk after they’d arrived in his office. She pulled it out, her fingers clumsy, and she almost dropped it.
He started to tell her to ignore it, but something in her expression as she looked at the screen alarmed him.
“Bree?” he started, but she shook her head as she clicked to answer.
“Hello?”
Carter listened with growing concern as Bree’s demeanor changed. Whatever exhaustion she’d been suffering appeared to have vanished. She began picking up her clothes in sudden panic.
“How? When? I thought—” she said to the person on the other end. “I don’t know. I haven’t spoken to him since the sentencing.”
Carter frowned and rose as well, dressing as she listened, then responded, “Donovan’s Bar. West Forty-fifth.”
Finally, she said, “I understand. I will,” and hung up.
“What’s going on, Bree?” he asked.
“Ronnie.”
“Your stepfather?”
She nodded, looking shell-shocked.
“What is it? What happened?”
“He escaped from prison.”
Carter went on instant alert as Bree kept rambling, her terror growing with each passing second. “They don’t know where he is. He was being transferred from one facility to another due to overcrowding. The bus transporting him crashed. He got out, got away from the guards.”
“When was the accident? Where?” Carter didn’t like how pale she’d gone.
“Upstate. This morning.”
“And they’re only just now calling to let you know?” He hadn’t meant to raise his voice, especially when she jumped. “Jesus, Bree.” He reached out and pulled her toward him, holding her tight in his embrace.
“They wanted to know if I thought he’d come here. If he’d come after me.”
Carter knew the answer to that question, but he didn’t share his opinion. Bree already appeared to be in the early stages of shock.

BLURB:
The last thing a newly hired dean should be doing is one of his students… Dirty flirting with the unbelievably hot barista at Bundt & Grind cafĂ© is not how Elliott Goodridge should be spending his time. Temperance Falls College hired him to counteract a scandal—not burn through his paychecks on overpriced coffee with a side of impure thoughts. For the amount of time college student Samantha Monroe spends fantasizing about the new guy in town, she should know more than just his name. But despite putting out all kinds of signs that she's down for, well, putting out, Elliott hasn't made a move. Yet. By the time the truth is revealed, it's too late to stop the charge between them. Sparks fly, but so do rumors. For Elliott, a day without his hands on Sam is too long—and two orgasm-free weeks until graduation is flat-out impossible. London Hale novellas may be read in any order and enjoyed as standalones. Looking for something quick, filthy, and taboo? The couples of Temperance Falls deliver.

Review

Seducing his Student, as with all London Hale books, sucked me in right away. It's loaded with sexual tension, an element of taboo, and fun, feisty characters.  


When Dean Elliott Goodridge flirts with the barista at Bundt and Grind he's got no idea who she is and how their flirting could harm his career. But something about the woman draws him in and won't let him let go, even when he knows he's risking a whole lot and should do the right thing. 

Samantha is shocked when the hottie "Dean" she's been seeing at the coffee shop turns out to be none other than the new DEAN of her school. If that wasn't bad enough, the discovery comes on the heels of what was supposed to be their first official 'date'.  But when Elliott wants to keep things between them professional so as not to risk either of them personally - Samantha isn't down with the plan.  She knows the risks of having a realationship with Elliott and is more than willing to take them, but does she fully understand them? 

Seducing His Student is a quick but steamy read, with all the dirty talk one would expect from a London Hale book but also some heart.  Samantha and Elliott's interactions are great and pull you in to the story seeing something more between them than an instant lust that pulls them under, making them willing to risk it all for a chance to be together. 




  About London Hale: London Hale is the combined pen name of writing besties Ellis Leigh and Brighton Walsh. Between them, they’ve published more than thirty books in the contemporary romance, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense genres.

Release Blast: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

   

AVAILABLE NOW

Amazon | iBooks | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | Amazon paperback

 


Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

--Simon
