Five years ago Guy Wiley decided to help Lucia’s family anonymously by setting up a charity called the Farm Help Society. It was a brilliant idea. He got to save the girl he loved from a life of poverty, all while masquerading as a poor farmer. He wanted her to choose him for who he was and not his wealth.

The plan would have worked flawlessly, except that Ace Jackson was also interested in Lucia.

Ace was serious competition. He was a handsome doctor who liked Lucia and was not going to let Farmer Guy stand in the way of him having the beautiful girl of his dreams.

Now, Guy was in a quandary. Should he blow his cover so that he could level the playing field, or should he let Lucia decide who she wants to spend the rest of her life with, the poor farmer or the wealthy doctor?

Who would be the perfect guy for Lucia?

Noah (5th Street Book 1)

by Elizabeth Reyes

Genre: Adult Contemporary/Sports/Hispanic-American

FREE at time of posting!

Veronica Cruz has been through hell and back. After disconnecting with the world two years ago to be at the side of her dying mother, she’s left alone, unemployed, overweight, and feeling a decade older than her twenty-eight years. When her best friend coaxes her into joining the local gym to ditch her depression and rejuvenate her life, she meets Noah. Assigned to help Veronica lose weight, Noah is everything she expected a young trainer to be—perfectly chiseled, supportive and motivating. Add to that, he’s incredibly sexy. He’s everything she’s ever looked for in a man. What she least expected was for him to fall for her, but he has. There’s just one glaring problem: Noah is eight years younger.

Noah Quintanilla has his eye on a boxing title—someday. Down for a few months with an injury, his maintenance-boy pay at 5th Street Gym won’t cut it. He’s finally given the opportunity to train. The catch? His trainee is an out-of-shape woman with a free week pass. Taking on the challenge, Noah stumbles into one of the closest friendships he’s ever known, and before he knows it, he’s in love. But Veronica’s not having it—the age difference is too much. Their platonic relationship means having to watch her date other men—something that would make him crazy. Believing he’s the man for her, Noah sets out to prove that age is but an illusion, and there’s more to him than just a number.

Excerpt #1

Charmaine shifted in her seat and uncrossed her legs. “Excuse me, I need to go to the restroom,” she said to the group.

“I need to use the restroom myself. I’ll show you where it’s located.” Malcolm rose from his chair and pulled hers out. He knew from past experience that the restrooms were in a secluded corner of the restaurant and were easy to miss if you weren’t paying attention.

As they walked toward the restrooms, Malcolm’s hand grazed her lower back, close to the curve of her bottom. Charmaine’s back stiffened for a moment before her body melted into his touch. Once out of sight of the other diners, Malcolm let his hand drift to her bottom and squeezed. Still as juicy and firm as he remembered.

Charmaine’s low moan reached his ears and she stopped in the middle of the secluded hallway. Standing behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist, he ground his erection against her derriere, both of them gasping at the friction.

Malcolm guided Charmaine by the hips, steering them toward the alcove tucked past the restrooms. On his first visit to this restaurant, he had come by the alcove by accident while looking for the men’s room. He leaned down and nuzzled the curve of her neck, inhaling her scent, before placing a soft kiss there. When she moaned, he grinned and licked a path from beneath her ear to the curve of her neck. Once they got to the alcove he spun her around, plastered his front on hers, and braced her back against the wall.

Looking down into her dark brown almond-shaped eyes, all of those old feelings hit him. Not just the lust—although that still was his predominant thought—but all the small things that he used to love about her. Like her inability to hide her emotions from him and how she reacted to his touch.

“Mal…mmm…Malcolm, what are we…what are we doing?” Charmaine gasped.

He moved closer, pressing light butterfly kisses against her neck. She felt so good against him, and he loved the way she arched into his touch and wrapped her arms around his neck, pressing her body closer to his.

He almost didn’t respond to her question, but when she gasped his name and repeated her words, he pulled back, breathing harshly. Her skin was just as smooth as ever and he was dangerously close to being lost in her. His eyes met her dilated ones, and it took every bit of self-control he had not to devour her on the spot. Instead, he let the back of his hand caress the side of her face as he stared into her eyes.

“This is a proper greeting, not that sanitized one you gave me earlier,” he murmured.

“Proper greeting? Sanitized?” Charmaine choked out, her body slightly arching away from his embrace and arms loosening from around his neck.

“Yes, did you really think a simple ‘hi’ would be enough for me?” he asked.

“I thought saying hi after not seeing each other for years was an acceptable greeting. What did you expect?” she asked, head tilted to the side, body still leaning slightly away in his embrace.

“A hug to start off,” Malcolm murmured, drawing her back to his body as he focused his attention on nuzzling her neck.

“Well, you’re taking a lot more than a hug now,” she said, shivering.

He smiled against her neck and closed both eyes, squeezing her body a bit more tightly to his.

#CoverReveal “Maribel’s Decadent Miniatures” by Theresa Sederholt

 

Maribel’s Decadent Miniatures
By Theresa Sederholt
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: 30th October

 

Cover model: Rachel Ayres
Photographer: Wendy Dorman
Cover Designer: Just Write Creations and Services

 Synopsis

 
He is determined to save his business; she is determined to protect her heart.
My name is Rayden Cornell and I have been drifting through life, trying to find that magical passion that helps life make sense. Until recently, life meant living in my parent’s basement. A chance to go to culinary college led me to where I am today—on my way to becoming a very successful businessman. I want to emphasize the phrase “on my way” because everything was going great until I opened the mail one faithful day.
I’m Dani Bernard, medium and counselor to young girls who have the same talent as I do. Living in Mescalero, New Mexico is the perfect place for me as I try to heal my shattered soul. I thought I was doing pretty well until I saw the image of my sister being used as the face for some guy’s pastry business. In a moment of despair, I reacted. I probably should have thought twice about sending the letter, but it was already on its way before I could take it back. The one thing I never expected was that the letter would change my life the way it did.
Success and tragedy meet and two hearts will have to decide what the future will hold for them.

 

Author Bio

Theresa Sederholt was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. She is a graduate of Campbell University in North Carolina, with a degree in Criminal Justice.
Theresa now calls Florida home, with her husband, a professional chef, and her two dogs.
Experiencing life first hand is what she does best. Believing she can do anything has put her in many crazy situations. Whether it’s babysitting a pig farm or cutting the top off of a mini truck; nothing is ever out of reach. Her list is endless,
A to Z.
As a flight attendant (there’s that list again), she would make up stories about all of her passengers as they came and went. It seemed only natural to put pen to paper and see where these characters led her. What started out as a single woman, having a cup of coffee—trying to make it through life—grew into a complex story of romance, mystery, and murder. The Unraveled Trilogy was born.
Theresa’s beliefs are pretty simple. There isn’t a luggage rack on the hearse, and give a girl Nutella and espresso and she can change the world.
Theresa enjoys connecting with her fans. She can always be reached through her email at : ttnewyork007@gmail.com
