Dating the Wrong Mr. Right

SYNOPSIS:

Pepper Watson has lost everything–her job, her fiancé, and the future she’d so carefully planned. Now she’s back at Wishing Bridge trying to figure out her next step. Her new plan does not include the ever-so-sexy Ben Cooper. Nope. She’s getting her life back on track, and getting out of this little town as fast as possible.

Ben Cooper is doing his best to build his business and help his parents. The last thing he needs is the distraction that is Pepper Watson. She might be prickly every time he’s in her presence, but he sees another side of her. The side that has set aside her dreams to help her sisters. And then there’s the fact that kissing her is pretty much the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

He’s putting down roots. She’s running away. It’s going to take more than a wish for these two to find their happily ever after.

EXCERPT:

She tilted her head a fraction. Was it an invitation? He leaned toward her.

“Coop, we shouldn’t,” she croaked, not moving.

“Oh, we really should,” he assured her as his mouth found hers.

Want exploded through him. Her lips were soft against his and she tasted of beer and freshness. Last time they’d kissed, it was over too soon. This time it’s on my terms. Her mouth opened to his as the beer fell from her hand. Coop discarded his own bottle and slid his hands around her back, drawing her closer.

The stars, the night sky, everything faded away.

She ran her hands down his back, turning him on more than it had the right to. He deepened the kiss before planting a trail of kisses down her neck. His fingers slid down the inside of her coat, but before he could tug her shirt from the waistband of her slacks, her cell phone beeped. It was like a siren in the night, and they both froze.

Pepper was the first to respond as she pulled away from him and a series of emotions flickered across her face.

“Um, I should check this. It could be urgent.”

“More urgent than this?” Coop tried to get his breathing under control.

She opened her mouth and then shut it again. Obviously lost for words. She stood up, carefully stepping over the beer that had spilled out onto the ground.

“I’m sorry, I’m not sure what came over me, but I should go.”

Coop bit back his disappointment with a shrug. “Sure. But you know Pepper. Kissing me once might have been an accident, but twice…”

“Twice was a mistake. It won’t happen again,” she said in a regal voice.

“You’re the boss,” he said. She turned her back and hurried toward her car and driveway.

Okay, so that had happened. 
If only I knew what the hell that was.

In DREAMING at SEASIDE…

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Setting Off Sparks (Jennifer Bernard)

Setting Off Sparks

A Jupiter Point Novel
by Jennifer Bernard
Publication Date: June 13, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks |Print

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard returns to the town readers are falling in love with…

In one fiery moment, Finn Abrams went from cocksure firefighter to scarred survivor. Now all he wants is to put his life together again, get back on a hotshot crew, and figure out exactly what happened to him during the Big Canyon burnover. He never expected to be knocked off his feet by a gorgeous, no-nonsense stranger to Jupiter Point—the one woman who seems completely immune to his famous charm.

Coolly practical, Lisa Peretti knows she won’t be in Jupiter Point for long. As an ER nurse in Houston, she helped a friend escape a dangerous situation. Now she’s hiding out in the little town, determined to keep a low profile. The last thing she needs is attention, especially in the form of the tabloid-starring, actress-dating, too-sexy-for-his-own-good Finn Abrams.

Still, Lisa can’t resist someone who needs her help. As long as she can keep her distance, working with the local hero as he recovers from his burns should be no problem, right?

Wrong. When danger follows Lisa to Jupiter Point, she’s startled to find Finn ready, willing, and more than able to come to her rescue. Add to that a meddling movie crew, some kindhearted locals, and her own unruly heart, and Lisa quickly loses any shot at keeping her feelings under cover.

Fire season in Jupiter Point is always smokin’ hot…but this time it’s going to be Setting Off Sparks.

Excerpt

“I’m insanely attracted to you, Lisa. And unless I’m crazy, you’re attracted to me too.”

She bit her lip. Too bad she was such a bad liar. If she tried to deny it, he’d know in a flash. He could already read her so well. “Yes,” she admitted. “Fine, I’m attracted to you. You’re attractive. There’s chemistry. Sparks. And of course I feel them. I’m a nurse, not a nun.”

He studied her face intently. “Then what are you afraid of? It’s not the scars. They don’t bother you. We’re not in some kind of real professional setting with rules. No one’s going to care if we kiss.”

If we kiss.

The idea set off wild sparks in every direction. Kiss Finn? Oh yes. Her body was practically throwing a party at the thought. Her nipples tightened, liquid heat spread through her lower body. She imagined his sexy mouth pressed against hers, his scruff scraping against her soft skin. Her tongue tingled. She pressed it to the roof of her mouth.

This was crazy. She shook her head to break the spell.

Her practical side took over. Kissing Finn would be just like kissing anyone else. Anti-climactic. After all, kissing was tricky. It was so easy to overdo it. To be honest, kissing had never lived up to her expectations. Not once. In her opinion, it was an extremely overrated activity.

Yes, that was it! The answer came like a flashing neon sign. If she kissed Finn, she could shake this silly attraction-slash-crush she was developing. If he was at all slobbery or over-eager or clumsy with his kiss, she’d be over him—just like that.

And really, the chances were good that she’d find something to object to. The last time she’d kissed someone—a doctor she’d dated briefly—all kinds of thoughts had wandered through her head. I don’t like how his teeth feel. Did I get Mrs. Carter her meds yet? What’s the world record for longest kiss? What about shortest? Can we go for that?

Kissing Finn was the perfect solution.

“What’s going on in that brain of yours?” Finn asked, amusement curving his lips. She took in the scruff around his mouth. It would probably scrape her skin and break the mood. He still looked tired from his red-eye flight. This was the perfect moment; the kiss would suck, and she could forget about Finn.

“I was just…thinking…” Instead of finishing her sentence, she drew in a long breath and dove in. Bad kiss coming up.

Her lips met his. His breath is so sweet. That was her first thought. And then, Sweet mercy, that feels good.

And then, oh crap. Big miscalculation.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Wild (Ashley Bostock)

Wild

A Love in Lone Star Novel
by Ashley Bostock
Publication Date: May 2, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon

Ever since my divorce became final, I decided to start putting myself first. The problem is when I think of putting myself first, I think of my son’s biological father, Thatcher Patterson. The man that wanted nothing to do with me when he found out I was pregnant.
When he left me, he took my heart with him and I’ve never gotten it back.

Suddenly my son and I are forced to live with Thatcher indefinitely and it’s difficult to remember all the reasons why I don’t trust him. The way he looks at me, the way he is with our son and the way he makes me feel are all the reasons I’m running toward him instead of away from him.

But if I run toward him, how long will it take for him to up and run the other way from us, much like he did before?

~~

I’ve never stopped loving Abigail Murphy or wishing I could be the perfect dad to my son. So, when a stipulation in my late grandfather’s will states that I must have an heir to claim my inheritance, it’s the push I need to get them in my life.

Because I need them as much as I need that money. With my business in the red, I have no other option. As the deadline creeps closer, I never counted on the guilt I would feel at trying to get a two for one deal. When the two of them move in with me, I’m reminded of all the wonderful things this woman has to offer and all the emotions she makes me feel.

She makes me feel worthy. Wanted. Loved. She makes me feel like I could be the man she needs and just maybe I could be the father my son deserves – the father I’ve been so afraid to be.

 

Exclusive Excerpt

Which is why I shouldn’t be talking about her. Because talking led to thinking and thinking led me to places I shouldn’t be remembering. The way she tasted when we were five years younger and how hungry she used to be for me. I’d never experienced a hunger like that. The way she would cling to me like I was her last breath of air. Exploring every piece of my body with her mouth, her fingers. For not the first time, I wished she wasn’t that way with Adrian but in my heart of hearts I knew she was. That side of her wasn’t something one practiced. It was just who she was. Built into her the way the flight was built into a bird. It just was.
And it made me sick every time I thought about it.
“Thatch? Snap out of it, man.”
“Fuck off.”
“Why didn’t you stay with Abby when you got her pregnant? Are you ever gonna tell me?”
I shook my head to silence Cap. No. I wasn’t going to tell him. I wasn’t ready to tell anyone what had me so graciously call in a favor from Adrian when I’d gotten the one woman I truly loved, pregnant. I didn’t need to relive the past any more than I needed to think about Abby.
“Speaking of sealed lips though, can I bounce something off you?”
“Bounce away.”
“I got a letter from the trustees of my grandfather’s will yesterday. Further instructions on how I can obtain the rest of my inheritance.”
“The rest of it?” he cocked his brow at me.
“Four-hundred and fifty thousand dollars to be exact.”
“Go get that shit, man.”
“I need proper documentation that I’m in custody of a child.”
I watched the words sink in, just as they’d done with me. I knew the gears were turning in his head. In the silence, I could hear a dog barking in the distance. Cap and I stared at each other for a good minute before he finally spoke.
“Go get a fucking letter or something from her.”
“It’s not that simple, Cap. I have to have custody. Which means I can ask nicely and watch her laugh at me or take her to court.”
“It’s four-hundred and fifty thousand dollars, Thatch.”
“With the Deer Creek store in the red, I’ve got to go to court.”
“She’s going to fucking hate you more than she ever has.”
