Victor Reuben.
Most sought out divorce attorney in LA.

Unless you count the mind blowing sex they had…
Once
Twice
Three times all those years ago.
The past is in the past, though. As long as they keep their hands off each other until the divorce is final, they'll be fine.

Cover Reveal - ROOKIE MOVE by Sarina Bowen

COMING SEPTEMBER 6th: A sexy new hockey 
series from Sarina Bowen. 



In high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold...

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast...

"Romantic and hilarious, Rookie Move will hook you from page one. Nobody does hockey like Sarina Bowen." --Elle Kennedy, New York Times bestselling author of the Off Campus series.

Cover Reveal - WHEN I'M WITH YOU by Harper Sloan

Coming soon from New York Times Bestselling Author Harper Sloan is the third book in the Hope Town Series

WHEN I'M WITH YOU.

  WhenImWithYoufull  
WhenImWithYou_FrontCover_LoResNate: It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by love but not understand it. My parents, my sister, and just about everyone around us has no trouble accepting that love. To give your trust to someone else and believe they would die before hurting you. I’ve witnessed it—I’ve seen the power of it—but I’ve also seen the pain. Because for me, I’ve only loved someone I could never have, and my biggest fear is that by giving her my love, all I would do is ruin her. I should have tried harder, but I’m not sure I can because I only feel complete when I’m with her.

Emberlyn: The only time I feel like I belong is when he’s near. His infectious smile warms me straight to my bones. Any insecurities I have vanish with just a wink from him. A sliver of his attention makes me feel invincible. But all it took was one drunken night of truths for me to lose everything I had begun to crave. Now, I’m not sure how to move on because I only feel complete when I’m with him.   He said I was too young. I said he was perfect. 

He said our families wouldn’t understand. I said we could weather any storm. He said he would ruin me. And he was right.

Exclusive Excerpt:

PROLOGUE

“Let them in.” King Maltrier pulled in a shuddering breath and then coughed raggedly for a minute. 

“Your Majesty, are you sure?” his longtime servant asked. He had the same relentless attitude that he always had, but he sounded more earnest than ever, as if he could will the King not to die. 

“Get them, Solmis. Now.” 

Solmis walked wearily across the darkened room. He heaved open the weathered door to the King’s bedchamber and spoke to the pair of guards standing watch, “Get the boys. The King wishes to speak with them.” 

One guard punched his right fist to the left side of his chest in a formal Byern salute and then walked into the outer chamber. A moment later, he returned with two young boys with the same dark hair and blue-gray eyes that marked them as Dremylon heirs. 

“This way, boys,” Solmis said. He was one of the few people who could get away with calling the Princes boys. 

“Thank you, Solmis,” Edric, the crown prince, said with a smile and the confidence of someone who never wanted for anything. 

The second son, Kael, pushed past them both, mimicking his brother’s stride. His face was set in a scowl. Some of his youthful exuberance had already drained out of him, and in its place was cynicism from losing a mother too young and from having a sick father, but mostly, it was from being second.

“Father,” he called out. 

“Come here, Kael,” the King said. He patted the side of the bed. “You, too, Edric.” 

Edric walked to his side and settled into a chair while Kael hoisted himself up onto the bed. 

With Edric being fifteen and Kael at thirteen, both were much too young for this kind of loss. 

The King had seen his youngest, Jesalyn, earlier that day. She had cried the entire time, understanding what was coming and knowing she could do nothing to stop it. In tears, she had run out of the room and straight into Consort Shamira’s arms. She had all but raised the child after his wife, Queen Adelaida’s unceremonious death. 

But he couldn’t waste thoughts on that now. He was tiring with every passing moment. The boys…they had to know. 

“Solmis,” the King said, regaining a shred of strength. 

His servant, his old friend, left the room, giving them the privacy they needed.

“Father,” Kael repeated impatiently. 

“I’m dying,” King Maltrier said. 

Silence followed the declaration. Kael looked aghast. Edric tried to hide the shock of what he knew would be coming next. 

“Edric will succeed me.” 

“I’m too young to be king,” Edric whispered. 

“Fifteen is not too young.” The King thought that was questionable, but he would not dispute it with his son. Edric had to be strong. He had to rule. “You have the Consort and my High Order to help and guide you.” 

Edric swallowed and nodded. “Yes, Father.” 

“Trust in yourself, and all will go as planned. I have formed an alliance with Aurum for Jesalyn to be queen and another with Tiek, who has offered you their young Princess Kaliana. Honor these matches to keep our people safe. A strong king is one with an heir.” 

The King leaned over and coughed into a handkerchief for several minutes. His throat was raw, and his lungs ached. He didn’t know how much more he could take, but he had to pass on their legacy. 

But could he put that burden on them? 

He had to decide now. 

No. He would tell only one. He would pass it on to the boy most like himself—the one who could handle the knowledge, the one destined to rule. 

The King turned to one of his sons and said, “I need to speak with your brother alone for a moment.” 

His eyebrows knit together as hurt and confusion clouded his features. “But, Father—” 

“Go,” King Maltrier commanded. 

He clenched his jaw, stood, and left without another word. 

It was the last time the King would ever see his son. 

The door closed roughly behind him. 

King Maltrier turned to his other son. “You know the story of our ancestor Viktor Dremylon.” 

He nodded, but the King continued anyway. 

“Viktor struck down the evil Doma court that subjugated our people. Then he claimed the throne for himself with the sole purpose of ruling in a fair and just system.” 

“Yes, Father.” 

“History is told by the winners.” 

“What do you mean?” He tilted his head and looked concerned. 

Perhaps he thought the King had already lost his mind. 

“Viktor did destroy the Doma court, and he ushered in a new era of Dremylon rule that has persisted two thousand years up until you today. But what is not in the stories is that the Doma court had ruled because they had powerful…abilities.” 

His son laughed like his father was telling a fairy tale. 

“Listen!” the King snapped. That sent him into another fit, and his son helped him sit up, so he could cough into his handkerchief. 

When King Maltrier leaned back again, the King saw blood had coated the white silk. 

“Father, you should rest.”

Release Day - WE WERE HERE by Daisy Prescott + Thank You - Lori's Review

We Were Here by Daisy Prescott is LIVE!!!



In the 90s …
texting involved paper and a pen …

… our selfies were Polaroids ...

… our favorite music was on mix tapes.

Sex was dangerous, music was raw, and falling in love felt nostalgic.

We were friends and lovers.

We thought we knew everything. 

We knew nothing.

We were here.

Set in the early 1990s, a time before the internet, social media, and smart phones, We Were Here is the prequel to Geoducks Are For Lovers. This book can be read as a standalone. 

"This story has it all! Just like a mixed tape; we get a dose of steamy romance, angsty ballads and sweet love songs woven together in a compelling, heartwarming and sometimes heart-wrenching journey of self-exploration." Helena Hunting, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author





About Daisy Prescott:

USA Today Bestselling Author Daisy Prescott writes romantic comedies with heart. 

Her Modern Love Stories feature characters in their thirties and forties finding and rediscovering love in unexpected and humorous ways. Her Wingmen books star regular guys who often have beards, drive trucks, and love deeply once they fall.

Born and raised in San Diego, Daisy currently lives in a real life Stars Hollow in the Boston suburbs with her husband and an imaginary house goat. When not writing about herself in the third person, Daisy can be found traveling, gardening, baking, or lost in a good book.

To learn more about Daisy and her writing, sign up for her mailing list here (copy and paste this link): eepurl.com/xhXb5. Send her an email at: daisyauthor@gmail.com Or chat with her on Twitter (@daisy_prescott) and Facebook: /daisyprescottauthorpage, and follow her on Instagram: /daisyprescott




WE WERE HERE is absolutely the best of all things. 

First of all, it's set in the 90's and makes me miss all of the wonders of college and the first tastes of freedom and adulthood. Set in the middle of grunge territory, it this story speaks to my Pearl Jam loving heart like no other.

Secondly, Daisy did a superb job of going back and filling in a lot of background for us without actually making this story feel like it was written later. It truly does feel like it came years before Geoducks Are For Lovers and that takes a special kind of skill.

I'll let you read the summary above to find out what the story is about, but I will take a few moments to tell you why you need it in your life. In We Were Here, we get the story from each person's point of view and while sometimes that may seem overwhelming, especially when you are talking more than two or three characters, Daisy handles it perfectly and has each character reveal exactly what is necessary with little to no overlap with other characters or books. This story simply wouldn't be all that it is if it were just from one perspective.

Daisy has a unique ability to write stories that appeal to me as a grown woman. While I enjoy a great first young love story as much as the next person, it's great to read stories of women and men who have lived a bit more life and who find great love no matter what their age. I will never not read one of her books.

You do not HAVE to read the other books in the Modern Love Story series to enjoy We Were Here, but I STRONGLY recommend you at least read Geoducks Are For Lovers first or immediately after you finish We Were Here. You'll figure out why this is important.

THE POWER by Jennifer L. Armentrou - First 15 Pages Released

We are so excited!!


Jennifer L. Armentrout and Spencer Hill Press have now released the first 15 pages of the book for readers to enjoy for free! Take a peek by clicking the link below. 

Pre-Order THE POWER Website


With any great change, there is always strife, and the Covenant University has become the frontline between pure-bloods who want the Breed Order reinstated and the half-bloods who want the right to control their own destinies.
Fate has other plans.

The violence is escalating and war between the races seems inevitable, and it couldn’t come at a worse time. Hyperion may be out of commission, but Josie and Seth know they have only earned a reprieve. Seth must get Josie fully prepared, which means controlling her newfound abilities, and they need to find the other demigods before the Titans do.
But the gods are sensing a greater threat.

Only one thing is more dangerous than a bunch of starved Titans, and that’s an out-of-control Apollyon. The aether in Josie is drawing Seth in deeper, and when lust mixes with love and gives way to power, he knows being close to her is not only dangerous to her, but to everyone around them, but letting her go requires a level of selflessness that just isn’t Seth’s style.

The paths taken in the past are becoming the roads of the future.

Just as chaos breaks out, familiar faces from the past return, complicating the already strained bond between Josie and Seth, and when the danger from the Titans erupts with devastating consequences, the dark allure of power calls to Seth again, but this time Josie might not be able to pull him back.

And when the struggle between power and love becomes the deadliest battleground, there may be no salvation.

About YOU’RE STILL THE ONE: 

Love is one dare neither of them can take… 

Arabella Stone, Nashville’s darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her ” summer bucket list” is the way to do it. First up: kiss the man she’s crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker. 

For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn’t out of the norm–but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label’s CEO, he knows he’s in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she’s also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought. 

Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them…knowing that once it’s all over, so is their time together.

Tour brought to you by: 


I absolutely adored Arabella and Charlie.

I can always count on Rachel Harris to satisfy my inner swoon-lover. She tells a great story and has the ability to stretch the UST and make me crave more. Her characters are complex and sometimes broken, but her stories all have an overwhelming feeling of hopefulness that I just cannot help but fall in love with.

Arabella and Charlie's story combines a lot of my favorite tropes and storylines. Charlie is a successful musician and Arabella is the daughter of the CEO of the record company that Charlie works for, basically she's the boss's daughter. While Arabella has been 'in love' with Charlie for many years, to him she is just the young awkward daughter of the man who signs Charlie's paychecks. It's been a few years since Charlie has even seen Arabella, so when she makes the decision to approach him, he has no idea who has him turned completely upside down.

After the band's warning to stay on the boss's good side, and Charlie and Arabella's stolen moments at an industry dinner, Charlie and Arabella find themselves working in close quarters for the summer. They forge a tentative friendship, attempting to ignore the chemistry building between them. They both are keeping secrets, but some lies have the potential to the future for both of them.

I know you can read the summary for yourself, so what I'm here to say is that Rachel Harris delivers a sexy, fun, romance complete with smoking hot chemistry and fun flirtation. Put Arabella and Charlie on your TBR list. You won't be disappointed.
