#NewRelease “Spring Break Baby Burrito (Spring Breakers)” by Frankie Love

~~~

Bayleigh has sun-kissed skin with lots of curves and her tiny bikini has me wanting more than her drink order.
I’m filling in as a bartender at the Cancun Paradise Resort — and my shift is just ending.
She’s looking at me like she knows I’ll deliver the cocktail she’s dreaming about.
When I pull her to my lap, we both know this night is just getting started.

Dear Reader,
Short. Sweet. Sun-drenched.
I didn’t have any spring-breaks-gone-wild myself, so this April I’m living vicariously through Bayleigh and Brody!
He’s more than an alpha with a six pack … this hottie is about to become a daddy!
xo, frankie

“Cupid’s Schemes: A Collection of Sweet Romances” by Kelli A. Wilkins

By Kelli A. Wilkins

Cupid's Schemes cover

Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to announce the release of my contemporary romance anthology, Cupid’s Schemes. In these 16 flash fiction vignettes, Cupid’s arrow hits the mark and ignites a spark between two strangers—whether or not they’re looking for romance. Their unusual meetings lead to new beginnings and new chances at love.

Sweet stories of couples falling under Cupid’s spell include:

* a Medieval knight courting a pretty lady
* two neighbors discover that romance can happen when you least expect it
* a dehydrated mermaid rescued by a handsome stranger

These lighthearted mini-romances are perfect reads for a quick lunchtime escape or an after-work indulgence.

Here’s an excerpt from Skating Sweethearts, the first story in this collection:

Skating Sweethearts

 

“Turn! No, Jules! Not that way,” Cheryl cried out.

Julie yelped as she whisked along on the ice, barreling out of control and barely keeping her balance. Her ice skates seemed to have a mind of their own.

What should she do? If she tried to stop, she might trip and go flying head over heels. If she turned, she’d probably fall onto her side. Either way, she was doomed. God only knew what she’d break if she landed on the cold, unforgiving ice.

This was a bad idea. A very bad idea. Why did she let Cheryl talk her into coming here today? How is this supposed to be fun? She zoomed along, praying she wouldn’t crash into anyone. Thankfully, the outdoor rink wasn’t very crowded.

“Watch out,” she warned as she skidded past a teenaged couple holding hands. All of a sudden she spotted a man in a red ski coat right in front of her. Uh-oh.

Before she could stop herself, she plowed into the back of the tall man. To her surprise, he whirled around, caught her, and twirled them in a circle.

She closed her eyes as the world spun. Then, everything stopped.

“I’ve got you. Are you okay?” the man asked.

Julie relaxed in his grip. It took a second to realize that his strong arm was coiled around her midsection. Her gloved hand rested on his shoulder. Strong, stable, nice.

A blast of cold air blew a lock of blonde curls in front of her face and she brushed it away. She glanced up to see who this powerhouse was. She gazed into her rescuer’s cocoa-brown eyes. “I’m sorry I crashed into you.”

“You’re not hurt are you?”

“No, but my pride is wounded. I made a complete fool of myself in front of everyone. I have no idea what I’m doing.”

She licked her lips and realized the handsome guy still held her around the waist. He seemed to be in no hurry to let her go—and that was fine with her.

Julie studied his high cheekbones, Roman nose, and stubbled jawline. Dark hair peeked out from under his red knit cap. He appeared to be in his early thirties, like her.

She inhaled deep as the wind blew a whiff of his musky cologne in her direction. Whoever this guy was, he smelled wonderful.

“Thanks for rescuing me. I’m Julie.”

“Allan.” He gave her a gentle squeeze. “Feel free to need rescuing anytime.” He winked. “Let me guess, this is your first time skating?”

“It shows, doesn’t it?” She looked back over her shoulder. Cheryl stood at the far end of the rink, waving. “My sister gave me a push in this direction and… Oh.”

Now she understood exactly what Cheryl had done—sent her skating right into this hunk on ice. Cheryl had an annoying habit of always trying to hook her up with strangers. It was a nice idea, and she meant well, but how many times had she flirted like crazy only to discover the man wasn’t interested—or worse—have his wife or significant other appear out of nowhere? It was embarrassing.

“Reparation (Vigilante Justice Book 4)” by Kristin Harte

Reparation

Reparation: A Small Town Romantic Suspense Novella (Vigilante Justice Book 4)

by Kristin Harte

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Military/Short Story

2.99 at time of posting!

Book four in the Vigilante Justice series takes us back to the beginning…and finishes something left undone.

Everyone left threads untied in their lives. Mine just happened to be the kind that could make you stumble, could make you fall flat on your face. Could leave a trip line handy for the enemies who would use it against you.

My girl needed safety and security, and I hadn’t given that to her. Not really. Not yet, at least.

To secure her future, I needed to put mine in jeopardy.

I needed to do some killing.
