Release Day: CASUAL AFFAIR By Melanie Mutton

Title: Casual Affair (Slow Seduction #1)
Author: Melanie Munton
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 24, 2017
Cover Designer: Entangled Publishing
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Bea Paxton is a free spirit. She loves her fledgling interior design business, having fun, and she loves men. But only temporarily. Rule #1 is no relationships, no love, no commitment. She likes being in charge. It’s the only way to protect herself from getting hurt again.
Zane Price is the perfect candidate for a steamy time—beautiful, built, and British. Plus, he’ll soon be moving back to England. Really perfect.
Well…except for the fact that he’s her biggest client. And he doesn’t play by her rules. Hell, no. He wants more. Much more. Which is definitely not on the agenda.
Unfortunately, his kisses are nothing short of toe-curlingly awesome. And he is distracting her—a lot—from doing her job.
She needs to stay away from him. Her livelihood depends on it.
But Zane always gets what he wants. And he wants Bea. But for right now? Or forever…?

AMAZON:  Casual Affair (Slow Seductions)

She waited for just the right moment, pushing to her feet when she saw her opening. She was zoned in on her target, gun lifting in his direction—and was suddenly flying through the air.
“Hey!”
Somebody had hold of her and they were going down. She braced herself for impact with the hard ground, but landed on a firm chest instead. A chest that smelled suspiciously like…Zane Price.
She was rolled off his body and found herself staring up at his face. He looked kind of angry. Huh. She wasn’t expecting that. She could feel his package grinding against her pelvis, so she certainly wasn’t mad about anything. A package that was quickly hardening, by the way.
“Did you just tackle me?” she asked in bewilderment.
She saw him swallow as his eyes flew over her face. “I believe I did, yes.”
Their position on the ground was far too sexual—not that she was doing anything about it. His upper body was hovering over hers so as not to crush her, but their lower bodies were in close contact.
Very close contact.
She cleared her throat. “Why?”
“Because you were about to become a casualty,” he whispered. “I saved your life.”
“My hero.” She’d meant it to sound sarcastic. But her voice came out a lot huskier than she’d intended.
He noticed.
His eyes darkened in response.
Everything below her belly clenched with need, a reaction that his own body mirrored. She felt him grow thick against her thigh, and though he didn’t say anything, she knew they were both aware of what was happening south of the border.
“And you’re still on top of me, why?”
“Because part of me is quite comfortable here,” he admitted. “And a different part of me is about to be in a world of pain once I move. I’m trying to decide which part I should listen to.”
“Do I get a say in this?”
He gave a small thrust of his hips against her, making her gasp. One quick grind that allowed her to feel the full extent of his manhood in all of its stiff glory.
She was a goner.
His eyelids lowered to half-mast as he took in her reaction. “Do you want a say in this?”

Traveler. Reader. Wino. Beach-goer. St. Louis Cardinals fan. North Carolina resident. Sarcastic. Bit of a nerd.
Author of the Slow Seductions, Cruz Brothers, Possession and Politics, and Timid Souls series, Melanie loves all things romance, comedies and suspense in particular because it’s boring to only stick to one sub-genre! From light-hearted comedies to sexy thrillers, she likes to mix it up, but loves her some strong alpha males and sassy heroines.

REVIEW: FAIR PLAY By Mia Ford (Sports Romance)

Doesn’t he look HOT? Don’t you wanna PLAY with him…

Blurb

Sean Donovan runs like the wind and parties like a hurricane. How do I get a hot stud like him to notice a simple girl like me? Easy, by pretending to be the kind of girl I know he can’t resist…

Kate Asher: Don’t tell me to play fair. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to get an interview with hard-partying football star Sean Donovan, even if it means dressing up like a hooker and playing bump-and-grind with him on the dancefloor.

Sean Donovan: On the field, I play fair, but in life, it’s anybody’s game. The second I saw her red hair and red lips I knew that I’d be making a forward pass. And when she flashed that cleavage, whew man, it was game over!

REVIEW:

Kate is a sports reporter who wants to make a name for herself with her magazine.  She wants an exclusive with Sean Donovan who is always in the news in bar fights, drunk, etc.  She goes undercover and gets more than she bargained for, she meets all the sides of Sean and gets her story.  But once he knows she lied will she get her man?  Wonderfully HOT erotic romance by a new author you won’t want to miss with lots of sex and some football thrown in.

I had saved my v- card for the right man….
I knew who it would be
He has mesmerized me with his looks,
Intoxicated me with his taste.
I know it is forbidden,
And can’t do a thing about it.
It’s so hard to fight my feelings,
And then…
He makes me pregnant!
What do I do now?
Should I tell the world and my dad, in spite of the age-difference….
In spite of the fact that he is Daddy’s Best Friend and that I am BREAKING ALL RULES to get him!

But my stepfather expects me to marry. And then there is my new fiancé.
My hot, fake fiancé.
 
Tall, handsome, mysterious.
That’s how Chase Wright is.
Unfortunately, he is not mine.
Unfortunately, too, the day I hired him, I signed an agreement.
 
When an innocent plan lands us engaged, none of us are prepared for the consequences. No one warned us that we could fall in love. Maybe The Agreement wasn’t such a good idea.
 
I should stay away from him and forget about our one night together.

Revenge Best Served Hot By Jackie Braun

REVENGE-BEST-SERVED-HOT-1600x2400Sign: Virgo

He’s all business…until he’s all hers

Brody Flynn waited years to get his revenge on Douglass Shipping for his parents’ accidental deaths. Now the company is fumbling, profits are down, and it’s the perfect time for a hostile takeover. Vengeance. But the former CEO’s daughter Kate Douglass has other plans…

 

Kate’s been waiting for her chance to take on a real role at Douglass and prove to her family that she’s not the fragile piece of glass they all think she is. There’s no way she’ll give up without a fight. All she has to do is convince the gorgeous new CEO to hire her…and not fall for him.

 

But Brody was never supposed to feel attracted to the daughter of his enemy. He was never supposed to want her as hard as he does. And the only thing stronger than his hunger for revenge is his hunger for her

Excerpt 2

She walked with him to the front entrance, telling herself it was half a glass of chardonnay on an empty stomach that left her feeling so off balance. Just as she wanted to believe that, earlier, it had been responsible for that near miss that surely would have been a kiss had he not backed away. Kate certainly hadn’t been going anywhere. She’d been waiting. Wondering. All but holding her damn breath in anticipation.

“I’ll see you tomorrow,” he told her. One hand was on the doorknob, but instead of opening it, he turned. His expression was oddly fierce, his poker face having gone the way of the dodo. “For the record, this won’t happen again.”

She thought he meant coming in for a glass of wine, but he shot the assumption all to hell when he reached for her arms and tugged her closer. His mouth pressed against hers an instant before their bodies bumped together. His was unyielding, a solid wall of hard muscle and bone that her softer flesh was forced to mold against. His lips, however, were surprisingly gentle as they skimmed hers before his tongue sought entry into her mouth.

As her practical side screamed for her to push him away, Kate’s hands went to his shoulders. Then she slipped them between their bodies, opening up a small gap. But she didn’t push. Beneath her palms, she could feel his heart beating fast, its unsteady rhythm still managing to be in sync with her own. She grabbed a couple handfuls of his dress shirt, and then she simply hung on for dear life as the room tilted and her head spun.

God, the man knew how to kiss!

Lussuria – L’amore – Lucca’s Lust
Dark. It’s all dark. Darker than you could ever possibly imagine. Not even acandle can flicker an incandescent light in front of me. Even now, years after I escaped,I’m still living in darkness. I’m still running.
I’ve spent my entire life gazing at the stars, wondering if I’ll ever get to live in the light. It must be dazzling and wonderful.
You’ve read about tortured souls, but you’ve never read about mine.I was taken before I was even born. It was my destiny and written in my stars.
My soul’s not just tortured, it’s unrepairable and hollow. I left part of it back in Hell, and I can’t go back. I won’t go back. Not ever.
You think you’ve read it all?
You haven’t.
And sadly … it’s all true. It happened to me. And I hate that it’s my life.

I shouldn’t be alive.Life was never my own. Nothing was given to me and everything was taken from me.I ran. I fought. I stayed alive. Well, my body survived, my mind didn’t.
I’m damaged beyond repair.I live on my nerves.I feel emotions bigger than myself, and I am many things.
Vulnerable
Anxious.
.
Paranoid.
Guarded.
.
Ashamed.
Dirty.
Exposed.
And I feel alone.

I pray that one day I will be free. But that means placing trust and letting someone in.
Would they make me brighter? Would they make me believe? Would I make them dark?
I’ve never wanted to feel for someone else because I’m far too broken and deep. It scares me. I don’t trust easily. I’m curious, but I’m nervous.
I’ve never felt lust, or love, or light.

Until now.

I feel Lucca Caruso, and everything he symbolises.
He desires me. He wants me. He worships me. He loves me. He protects me. He makes me feel alive. He sets my body on fire. He melts my heart. He gives me him. All of him.
He is lust.
He is love.
He is light.
I trust him.
I want him.
I need him.

He is everything I have fought my entire life to avoid.He makes me feel.
He is taking me places I never imagined could be possible. He is giving me new life. He is keeping me in his light. He is giving me his heart, body, mind, and soul. I love it … I love him.And there is no other place I want to be other than in his arms.
With Lucca … I feel like I can breathe.I’m alive. I need him to keep me here.
I’m Lexi and this is my story about a world of darkness and a journey towards the light.

Meet the Author

sj molloy

SJ Molloy, British Author of ‘The Luminara Series’ was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. As a young child, her family moved and raised her in Lanarkshire, Scotland where she currently resides with her husband, two daughters and her energetic, hyperactive loving gun dog who is utterly spoiled.

SJ is a qualified Fitness Instructor and Health & Fitness Motivator of various fitness styles and disciplines. Music and dance aerobics have always been a pleasure and passion for her. SJ will sporadically make up dance style routines at any hour of the day when a move comes to her or piece of music moves or inspires her. Currently not teaching classes, she is focusing her time into nurturing her yearning passion for creative writing, exchanging one visualisation for another.

As a child, SJ loved to write in journals and make up short stories and has a flare for all things creative. With an overactive imagination at times, SJ adores to make notes, visualise scenes and settings to create characterisations.

While on holiday with her family one summer reading book after book, she had a flash of inspiration and has had various ideas whirling around in her mind ever since. It was not until she pulled back on teaching classes that she found the courage, time and insight into actually bringing these ideas to life.

In February 2013 she decided to bring that imagination to light by beginning her writing journey with ‘Lussuria’ the first instalment in ‘The Luminara Series’. ‘Lussuria’ was first published late November 2013, then re-published in April 2014. ‘L’amore’ the second instalment was published in June 2014.

Being a self-confessed book junkie, she loves nothing better than to get lost in an emotional and moving book. A true romantic at heart, her guilty pleasure is reading heart-warming, passionate stories and falling in love with her favourite fictional characters.

With nine books already mapped out in ‘The Luminara Series’, SJ’s busy creative mind has already planned two more fictitious novels, both stand-alone romance books and very different in their own right.

When she is not writing or reading, spending time with family and friends or exercising and walking her dog, SJ loves all things practical and creative. Dancing, music, cooking, travelling, good food and wine and painting are her favourite past times along with laughter, lots and lots of laughter.
