Claiming the Maverick's Heart #westernromance from guest @debraholtbooks #giveaway

“He’s back.”

Words Macy Donovan hoped to never hear.

Trace Cartwright was the maverick rodeo cowboy who broke her heart, leaving her on the steps of the church on the eve of their wedding. Now he's returned to build his home and to lay claim to her heart ... again. Macy barely survived the broken heart the first time. Does he think he can walk back into her life and take up where he left off?

Read a teaser 

All that from just a glance? It was only a swift glimpse, but Macy didn’t need more. The broad shoulders and lean hips hadn’t changed…and neither had the cocky set of the black Stetson. The man was more than a head taller than anyone around him; his straight-backed stature was a distinctive Cartwright trait, as were the green eyes inherited from his Irish mother. Macy couldn’t see his eyes from that distance, but she didn’t need to. They were forever etched in her memory. Wiping first one sweaty palm and then the other on the legs of her jeans, she increased her grip on the steering wheel while her insides continued their gymnastics.

Flashing back to #shifter erotic #PNR from @sirenbookstrand in #midweektease

From Wolf Bond book two in The Venn Pack in Love series #PNR from Siren Publishing
Liberty Venn longs for love after her alpha brother, Joshua, found it with Dani Cruz. It’s a year after the Cruz entrepreneurs have regenerated the town and saved Liberty from closing her cafe.
When a stranger arrives in town, he instantly captures lonely Liberty’s attention. Drawn to him by a deep undeniable instinct, Liberty loses her heart when Eden Farrell flirts with her.
Will he be the lover she’s begun to long for?
Eden Farrell, PI, wolf shifter, gorgeous, goes after what he wants, and now he wants Liberty. He recognizes the wolf in her long before she knows what he is. He ignites a passion in Liberty and she delights him with her response.
As a deep bond forms between them, danger follows Eden. He’s in love with Liberty, and believes nothing will keep him from her. Trouble is; danger is out to find them both. 
Read the teaser 18+
She went straight into his arms as he held them out to her.
His kiss was gentle, and he left his arm around her shoulders as they began walking along the street. “You look beautiful. You smell delicious.”
Liberty pushed her arm around his waist and gave him a squeeze. “I closed a little early to run home and change.”
Eden detoured into the garden area of the bar and led her to stand near one of the magnolia trees. He held her close and kissed her.
Liberty molded her body to his, pressing against him. She breathed in the masculine scent of his skin against her nose as she kissed him, lingering and taking more kisses. From her peaking nipples to her clenching thighs, every single part of her tingled and she sighed, yearning to push his shirt up and feel his skin under her fingers and her tongue. A huge wave of lust tore a low moan from her, and she rested her face against his chest, trying to gain control of her breathing.
Eden’s heart hammered under her palm as she ran her hand over him. He lifted her face with a gentle hand to gaze into her eyes. “Liberty, that kiss—do you know what that kiss told me?” His voice a whisper, he moved his mouth so close to hers, Liberty longed for his lips on hers. Her need for him bordered on painful. She could hardly speak. In a voice made husky with desire, she answered, “Tell me.”
“You want me. You’re longing for my naked body covering yours. You need my cock ramming into your heated, creaming pussy. Isn’t that right?”
Liberty’s stomach tightened. Her pussy throbbed and cream drenched her panties. She surged against him, pushing her arms up around his neck, clinging to him, her mouth open against his.
The hard column of his erection teased her.
He slid his tongue on hers.
She broke the kiss. “Yes, yes, you’re right.”
He lifted her, his hands under her thighs so that her dress fell back and she locked her legs around his hips.
She groaned into his lips when her heated pussy contacted the bulge in his jeans. Her panties were so wet the fabric thinned and it was bliss to press against him.
“I need you, too. I need you badly. I’m aching for you. My cock’s so hard it’s about to burst through my jeans. We could go to my apartment.”
Liberty’s heart leapt. “Yes, forget the drink, let’s go there.”
Eden took a step, holding her close, and then he smiled. “I should let you down.” He set her on her feet, but wrapped an arm around her waist, his hand resting on her ass possessively.
Liberty’s legs felt like jelly. She let him guide her, almost unaware of the street and the people, the promise of sex with Eden making her light-headed. He led her into the building and stopped at the open door where the stairs ascended to his apartment.
He ran his fingertips over her face, down her neck to hold her head. His kiss sent a throb through her clit and a fresh drench of cream in her pussy. Liberty floated in the luscious melting sensation that traveled over her entire body.
Eden lifted his face from hers. “You’re sure?”
Liberty couldn’t bear the thought of not making love with Eden. Nothing could stop her now. She wanted him more than she’d ever wanted anything in her life. “Yes.” There was nothing else to say, unless she succumbed to begging to be fucked, which was what she actually felt like doing.
Eden picked her up, his arm around her waist, and a hand under her thighs. He carried her up the stairs to his apartment.
Liberty gasped and smiled as he took the stairs easily.
At the top, he slid her down his body.
The movement brought her shift dress up around her waist.
Eden’s eyes darkened as his gaze traveled to her bare legs and up to rest on the V between her legs.
Liberty had chosen her flimsiest, most transparent lace panties to wear. She enjoyed his heated perusal. She reached out and took his hand to bring his fingertips onto her slit where her wet pussy made the lace cling.
Eden slumped a little. His breath left him in a groan and he seemed to stagger. He bent his head and leaned his forehead on hers.
“Touching you…like this…it’s sweet torture. I can’t imagine what it will be like to slide my fingers into you, to thrust my cock into you, but I know if we don’t fuck soon, hard and urgently, I’m gonna come in my pants.”
Liberty eyes closed with lust. She angled her hips so that his fingers slipped between her legs. “Do it now. Fuck me hard and fast. Suck my nipples. Ram your fingers into my pussy. I am desperate for you.”
Eden fumbled with the key in the lock.
Liberty saw his hands shake. Her whole body trembled.
He pulled her into his apartment and knocked the door closed with his foot. He grabbed her shoulders, turned her, and dragged the zipper of her dress down.
Liberty helped him push it down her hips. It pooled around her ankles.
Eden sucked on the soft part of her shoulder, sending powerful streaks of pleasure right to her nipples. He unclipped her bra.
Liberty let it slide off as she leaned back into Eden’s arms.
He ran a hand inside her panties, and stroked her cream-slicked folds as he dotted kisses down her neck, his other hand kneading one of her breasts.
Liberty moved her head trying to kiss his mouth.
He brought her to face him, his fingers trailing her juices up her stomach.
Liberty held the hem of his T-shirt and dragged it up to reveal his chest. She kissed and licked up his muscles and grazed her teeth on his nipples.
Eden’s eyes were closed as she looked up at him.
He held her hips with strong hands.
She whispered, “Take it off. Take everything off.”

Hot new release #PNR from @JJKing_Author and @evernightpub Read a #teaser

The scent of his woman ~ Northern Wild ~ by JJ King

The first Romance on the go in a series of three called Northern Wild. It’s a cougar shifter series that is all heat and mystery.

Kennedy Cole doesn’t know who she really is. Orphaned as a child, she was adopted by an amazing family who raised her as their own. So, when she begins to act strange, withdrawing from friends and family, they arrange a family vacation that’ll bring them all closer together. Even though she fights it at first, the northern wilderness seems to sooth something deep inside her, that is, until she smells him and everything in her world shifts… including her.

Reclusive cougar shifter, Trace Grady, hates humans almost as much as he hates his own kind. As far as he’s concerned, a quiet life in the northern forests of Canada is the only thing he desires, until she crosses his path and ignites a burning desire to mate so intense that it takes every ounce of willpower to stop himself from pouncing on her delectable body.

Walking away isn’t an option when all you can think about it your mate, but what if it’s for her own protection?


“You’re so beautiful.” Trace’s rumbling voice made the butterflies in her stomach come alive again. They were alone, with nothing between them but the air they breathed. No people, no animals, no shift, and no hesitation. Kennedy dropped her hands to the hem of her shirt and pulled it over her head, revealing her bare breasts. She smiled slowly and walked forward into his waiting arms.

He lifted her so easily, his strong arms settling at her waist and then wrapping around her as she twined her legs around his hips. Instantly, he settled her lower, so his thick erection pressed against her most intimate space. The pressure made her moan and throw her head back, exposing her throat and breasts to Trace’s waiting lips.

He took her invitation, bowing over to touch his lips to her neck. He feasted, trailing his tongue over her skin, lapping at her jawline and collarbone until she couldn’t draw a breath. Kennedy bucked her hips, riding the exquisite hardness that was bringing her closer to the edge.

Trace moved one hand from her back and lifted it to her left breast, cupping it in his hand. His mouth shifted from her throat, capturing her mouth, just as his rough fingers closed around her nipple. Kennedy gasped into his mouth, shocked at her own reactions. Never before had she enjoyed having her breasts touched, never before had she gasped and moaned and rode a man to…

Kennedy screamed as an orgasm hit her like a locomotive, slamming into her too fast to see it coming. She squeezed her legs around Trace as waves of pleasure washed over her, sending spasms through her entire body. As they ebbed, Kennedy felt her legs give way and she slid, utterly spent, down his body while Trace’s hands held her.

Best Worst Ever @LDBlakeley #MMRomance #ContemporaryRomance rerelease #teaser

Thanks for having me on today to tell you about Best Worst Ever. This story was my very first to be published so it will always hold a special place in my heart. I recently had my rights reverted, and knew I didn't want this novella to simply fade away. So I decided to give my boys a bit of a spruce-up. I redid the cover art, revised and edited the story and made it available once more. I hope you enjoy. :-)

Best Worst Ever By L.D. Blakeley
Erotic Romance, MM, Friends-to-Lovers
Available: April 13, 2017
Published: LDB Books

Carey English spends his days planning extravagant parties and lavish weddings and generally making people’s lives brighter. He spends his nights wishing for a man he doesn’t have to share and who won’t try to drag him back into the closet. It doesn’t help that the man he wants most doesn’t need a closet to begin with — his straight best friend, Sky.

Skyler Wood has been dumped — again — just days before the holiday season, leaving him with an ex-fiancée, a nonrefundable New Year’s Eve getaway rental, and nothing to ring in the New Year but a broken heart. For Carey, rushing off to offer Sky a shoulder will either be the best decision he’s ever made—or it will lead to the worst heartbreak he’s ever experienced.

✽This is an edited & revised version of a previously published story. It has been expanded by approximately 1,400 words.✽


Barnes & Noble

Coming soon to:
✽ GooglePlay


BEST WORST EVER - L.D. BLAKELEYIf there was one thing he knew about Sky, it was that he was as frugal as the day was long. And, judging by the other places he’d passed along the way, he was guessing the impressive exterior of this place matched a rather swanky, if not romantic, interior. Of course, idiot. Sky had rented the place thinking he’d be with his fiancée. Not his best friend.

He parked next to his friend’s SUV and stubbornly grabbed more than he could carry at once. Why make two trips when you can do it in one? Necessity might be the mother of invention, but laziness was definitely its big, bad daddy. Laden down with a suitcase and far too many bags of food and liquor, Carey used the toe of his boot to gently knock at the front door. “Sky? You in there? My hands are full, man, come open the door.” When there was no response, he tried again with the tip of his boot. “Mr. Darcy, are—”

His sentence was cut short as the door flew open. “Jesus! Hold your horses, Logan. I couldn’t hear you with the water running. I was just in the…”

Shower. He’d been in the shower. Carey knew this, not because he suddenly had the ability to read minds. Oh, no. He knew this because there, in front of him, stood all six foot four inches of Darcy Skyler Wood… dripping wet with nothing but a towel slung low around his hips. Shit.

Don’t stare. Don’t stare at that solitary drop of water as it slowly slides its way between the hard, flat planes of those perfect pecs. And for the love of all that’s holy, do not stare at anything even remotely near the edge of that towel! But Carey never was any good at taking orders.


L.D. Blakeley is a pragmatist with a romantic soul & a dirty mind. She loves horror movies, hot sex, and happily ever afters. She’s easily distracted by shiny things, and is a slightly neurotic, highly ambitious dreamer who enjoys dabbling in photography & pretending she can carry a tune.

In another life, L.D. was a newspaper reporter, an entertainment & music writer, travel writer, website content editor, and a marketing shill. Now she prefers to spend her time writing hot, steamy fiction (with a healthy dose of romance) about intriguing, sexy men. Although she dreams of living some place isolated with an endless supply of wine and an infinite number of titles on her eReader, she currently lives in downtown Toronto with her husband and their rock star cat.

Visiting the blog today @YesItsNicolaC with new release #PNR #shifter #romance

Hello, and thanks so much for having me on today! Shifter Woods: Howl is the first entry in my new paranormal shifter romance series Esposito County Shifters. Howl, which is the story of coyote shifter Laurie Rivera and her (very) unexpected mate Sheriff Caleb Lynch, was originally supposed to be submitted to an anthology. Real Life™ promptly intervened, as it does, and I blew the deadline. I decided to go ahead and expand the story past the antho guidelines and Howl surprised me by turning into a 23,000 word novella. Go figure. The second entry, Shifter Woods: Roar, which runs concurrently with Howl and follows the story of Laurie’s cameraman Gavin and bear shifter Mike Ivanov, will be out in mid-May.

Also, may I just say that I am SO glad I was finally able to use this particular male model on a cover? I’ve been faunching after him since Empress of Storms, and I finally got the right book for him – yay!

Laurie wants a news story. Caleb just wants to be left alone. But when the coyote shifters’ paths cross in New Mexico’s Sandia Mountains, Fate steps in and gives them something they never expected—each other.
Reporter Laurie Rivera is on the trail of a white slavery ring when she’s forced to run for her life in the foothills near Sandia Crest. Widowed sheriff and Alpha coyote shifter Caleb Lynch comes across the exhausted reporter and discovers to his shock that Laurie’s also a coyote shifter—and his new heart’s mate.
But Caleb never expected to have another chance at love, and Laurie has a good reason to fear being claimed, especially by an Alpha. As a snowstorm traps them in the sheriff’s cabin, Caleb must find a way around the barriers surrounding Laurie’s heart, and Laurie has to confront her past—and the humans who want her dead—if she wants a chance at her very own “happily ever after.”

Caleb Lynch slammed the cabin door closed with his foot, depositing the woman in his arms on the couch. Her eyes were still closed, her full lips turning a faint shade of blue, and her heartbeat was worryingly slow. That and the fact that she wasn’t shivering meant she was well into hypothermia.

At least he knew how to handle that. He stepped to the hallway closet and grabbed a bundle of blankets and the heavy old quilt his grandmother had made. Dumping them next to the sofa, he started stripping the cold, wet clothes off his guest.

Peeling off the waterlogged cloth revealed sleek limbs, smooth tan skin and some mouthwatering curves that made his palms tingle with the urge to touch. Worse, each new inch of exposed skin let more of her heavenly scent come to his nose. He’d thought he’d made a mistake out near the creek, that it had been some sort of olfactory hallucination, but this close it was impossible to miss. He struggled not to throw his head back and howl.

No. You have a responsibility, dammit. Get her warm and dry first.

When she was down to her underwear he opened one of the blankets and covered her with it, then reached under to strip off the damp scraps of nylon and cotton. She moaned in complaint and he bit his lip, trying to come into contact with as little skin as possible. What he did touch, however, was silken.

He pulled the bra and panties free, tossing them on top of the rest of her clothing, then set to piling more blankets on her, topped with the heavy quilt. She’d get warmer faster if you slid in there with her, part of his brain suggested. Just strip down, crawl in, take her in your arms and—

He cut that thought off. He had never laid a finger on an unwilling female in his life, and he damn well wasn’t about to start now. Even if she did look like sun and sin in one gorgeous package and smelled like—

Mine. She smells like mine.

Damn it all. It was getting harder to tear his mind away from that thought. Gritting his teeth, he sat back on his haunches and considered. Wet clothes removed and dry blankets applied, check. Next was warmth.

Along with the blankets he’d grabbed a bunch of chemical hand warmer packets. He cracked a few, shook them up to get the exothermic reaction going, then tucked them under the blanket by her feet. She shifted, toes automatically stretching towards the heat.

Her eyes fluttered open, revealing irises the color of a rich sherry. “Wha’ happened?”

“You tell me, honey.” Caleb swallowed a smile, wanting to stroke the tangled black silk away from her face. “I found you in Bollan Creek. I’m guessing you fell in?”

“Creek?” One slender hand emerged from the blankets, pushing her hair back. “Yeah. Fell down a hill—” She blinked, her gaze sharpening as she took in the blankets covering her. Her other hand groped under the blankets, confirming her sartorial status. “Where are my clothes?”

He expected confusion, even anger, but the strength of the fear pouring off her made him feel both guilty and a little annoyed. “They’re right here,” he said, nodded at the pile of wet cloth. “I’m sorry, but you were going into hypothermia. They had to come off.”

She clutched the blanket closer as she peered over the edge of the sofa at her clothes. A flush spread across her cheekbones, and the fear scent kicked up a notch. “Who took them off?”

He sighed. “I did. And to answer your next question, I covered you with a blanket first,” he tapped a drape of the quilt, “and I didn’t take any liberties.”

Not that he hadn’t wanted to. “Now, I’d appreciate some answers to my questions,” he said, allowing a hint of sternness to show through. “What are you doing in Big Rock territory without my permission?”

She stared at him, biting her lower lip. “I didn’t mean to, Alpha, I swear. I’m here on business.”

“What kind of business?”

“I’m a reporter with the Albuquerque Sun—”

The growing lust generated by her scent evaporated. “You’re a reporter?”

Just what he needed, one of those snoopy bastards poking around Esposito County. Except she’s a shifter, too. What the hell is she doing in a city, anyway?

About the author
Nicola Cameron is a married woman of a certain age who really likes writing about science fiction, fantasy, and sex. When not writing about those things, she likes to make Stuff™. And she may be rather fond of absinthe.
While possessing a healthy interest in sex since puberty, it wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to write about it. The skills picked up during her SF writing career transferred quite nicely to speculative romance. Her To Be Written work queue currently stands at around nineteen books, and her mojito-sodden Muse swans in from Bali every so often to add to the list, cackling to herself all the while.
Nicola plans to continue writing until she drops dead over her keyboard or makes enough money to buy a private island and hire Rory McCann as her personal trainer/masseur, whichever comes first.
