Sweet Tricks: A Love Bites Novella by Maggie Dallen


 

I see why this is called a “love bites” novella.  At the beginning, anyway. 

Tabitha shares her Brooklyn apartment with her typical choice of bad boy, musician, fly-by-night sort of man.  He camps at her place, she provides, and then he disappears to play a gig.

This time he didn’t come back.

Time for a cocktail with the best girlfriends.  What could be better?  Maybe the bartender.  And was he!Sweet Tricks: A Love Bites Novella by Maggie Dallen

Jack couldn’t help but hear the girls’ chatter.  Although, all he was interested in was Tabitha.

Tabitha isn’t considering another boyfriend with a job as a bartender and also a musician as she finds out.  He’s probably just like all the others.  But his eyes are so…so beautiful.

Jack can’t tell Tabitha everything about himself.  She wants her to like him for himself, not his, uh, assets. 

So how does the truth come out?  The truth must be revealed to have a real relationship.  It’s a rough road to the truth with a few detours to the end. 

A sweet romance with tingling issues!

Happy reading,

Dawn

Excerpt: 
“The sunlight was intense after a half hour in that gloomy space, but I squinted hard and kept moving toward a narrow set of steps down to the parking lot. Grady walked a few paces behind me, and if he heard the crinkle of paper as I moved, he elected not to say anything.

Grady hit the remote to his truck and grabbed for the passenger side door, his hand light on my elbow as he helped me up. Paper crackled as my butt hit the seat and Grady’s eyes narrowed. Without a word, he slammed my door and went around to the driver’s side, climbing up into the cab and stabbing the keys into the ignition.

“So, I—” I hesitated as I shifted in my seat and my movement was accompanied by the distinct sound of cardboard bending.

“No,” Grady muttered, and clicked on the radio. “No talking.”

“But—”

“Shh.” Grady put a finger to his lips, his eyes still on the road. “Any minute you’re going to tell me about the felony crime you just committed. And then I’m going to have to deal with the fact that I was an accessory to a felony crime."

“Umm, yeah.” I reached around to the back of my pants and eased the file folder up from my waistband, working it out slowly so as to not lose anything as Grady headed up the hillside toward his house. As I brought it around to look at it, the red block letters damning me to years of incarceration should I get caught, a muscle ticked in Grady’s jaw.

“You stole classified documents.” He shook his head from side to side.

I looked up at Grady and then down at the mangled file with the red Top Secret heading. I took a corner of the front sheet and ripped across the width of the page, separating the words “Top Secret” from the rest of the paper.

“They’re declassified now.” I crumpled up the classification and shoved it in my pocket.

Grady sighed.

I shrugged and opened the file.”

Logan's Luck (Last Chance #4) now available for pre-order! Only $2.99

Releasing July 19th.

Logan Williams has plenty of luck. The problem is, it’s all bad.

Logan is not happy his cousin retained the services of Dr. Jenna for the Last Chance Ranch. She may be the local vet, but he’d hoped never to see her again because it had taken so long to forget her the first time.

Jenna Atkins is not afraid of Logan’s bark because any man who looks at his baby daughter the way he does, has got to have a good heart buried somewhere in there. That doesn’t mean she plans to get any closer than they already were.

But when baby Charlotte’s mother arrives and sets her sights on Logan, Jenna discovers a territorial side of herself she didn’t know she had. The question is, should she walk away and let Logan’s luck run its course or should she interfere? Knowing Logan, either way, she’s bound to get hurt.

Changes


         Change happens.
It is inevitable, like the sun rising each morning and setting each night or the pull of the moon on the ocean tides.
Sometimes, it’s a momentous change…a life event…like marrying the person of your dreams, buying the house you’ve always wanted, or the birth of a long-awaited child. It could be as exciting as starting a new job or as simple as using a different creamer in your coffee.
Sometimes, that change is unexpected and not so pleasant but we’ve all learned to deal with those bumps in the road of life. It’s what we do. It’s how we evolve and grow. And maybe even learn.
But sometimes, that not so pleasant change turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to you…or the character you’re writing about. It’s an opportunity to try something new, a chance to spread your wings and take that leap of faith. It’s the thrill, the challenge to rise above whatever life has thrown in your—or your character’s—way.
I feel this way every time I start a new story and I realize that change is the beginning of each story I write. It could be from the heroine’s side or the hero’s side, but it doesn’t matter whose side the change occurred on. It happened. It’s the inciting moment…the reason, if you will, for the hero and heroine to meet and overcome whatever obstacle has been placed before them. And isn’t that what we want for them? Isn’t that why we read romances? For that happily ever after despite the circumstances that began their journey?
Here’s hoping all the changes that occur are good ones and turn out to be the best thing that ever happened!

As always, happy reading!

Seducing Cat by Adriana Kraft and a $10 Gift Card!

Seducing Cat
Meghan's Playhouse
by Adriana Kraft
Adriana will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC, to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Please use the RaffleCopter below to enter. Remember you may increase your chances of winning by visiting the other tour stops. You may find those locations here

~*~*~*~*~*~
Guest Post From Adriana Kraft:
   That first kiss with the person who turns out to be the love of your life. Do you remember yours? I sure do, but my personal history contains nothing resembling the sniping that’s been going on between English professor Cat Shanahan and carpenter Kurt Davis for the first two thirds of our newest release, Seducing Cat. They’ve been spitting bullets at each other.
   They’re an unlikely pair: She’s 34, newly tenured at the college in the small town of Burntside Wisconsin, and author and director of plays at the community theater in town. Kurt’s 24, a high school graduate who teamed up with a buddy to create a construction company and is doing very well. He volunteers as a set designer at the theater, and Cat’s hired him to restore the century-old foursquare home she recently purchased.
   That age difference quite possibly qualifies the novella as a Cougar Story, but it’s so much more than that. To seize the love affair of their life, both Cat and Kurt have some deep-seated prejudice to overcome: upper class disdain for people who work with their hands, and working-class mistrust of the highly educated. Since our own extended families are filled with both academics and blue-collar workers, we’re familiar with this scenario—and we know that the deep divide can sometimes be overcome in real life, as well as on the pages of fiction.
   This five book series was originally released in 2009 by a different e-publisher. It’s been unavailable for over four years, and we’re thrilled Extasy Books has contracted to re-release it, completely revised and re-edited. In the meantime, Meg insisted we write one more adventure. The six books will release approximately every ten weeks. Watch for Book Two: A Woman for Zachary in early August!
   By the time the excerpt below occurs, Meg and Cat are already lovers. Kurt knows this, but he’s made clear he wants no part of whatever crazy scheme Meg is up to.

~*~*~*~*~*~
BLURB: Level headed English Professor Caitlin Shanahan has finally earned tenure and purchased the century-old two-story house of her dreams in the college town of Burntside, Wisconsin—at thirty-four, she'd better face facts: her future is teaching college and writing plays, not falling in love. So why is she so drawn to foxy little hometown actress Meghan Keenan, who's rented her upstairs apartment, or worse, to the girl's gorgeous hunk of a lover Kurt Davis, a carpenter who's never even been to college? Twenty-year-old Meg has a plan. First she'll seduce the reluctant professor, then she'll share her sexual delights with both Cat and her brawny carpenter, and when she's successfully brought them together, she can make her escape and explore what's beyond the only town she's ever lived in. Kurt can't stand the up-tight professor who's hired him to build a gazebo and refurbish her old house—the house he wanted for himself. Even if Meg’s scheme succeeds, he knows Caitlin would never look at him twice. No need to go there in his fantasies…

~*~*~*~*~*~ Excerpt:  
Wringing clammy hands, Cat stood in the small production booth behind the opening night audience. Openings inevitably made her anxious. There seemed no way to prevent it. This was her favorite place to watch the show, because from here it looked as if the cast performed only for her. Besides, no one bothered her when she was in the booth. The first act had been superb. Meg had the crowd in the palm of her hand, hanging on every word and responding to every gesture, and yet she had a way of not stealing the show. The cast performed well together. During intermission, Cat had visited briefly with cast members, giving them words of support before returning to the safety of her booth. Successful opening nights were so exhilarating, and this was one of those. She startled when the door to the booth opened and closed quickly. “Thought I’d find you here,” Kurt said softly, squeezing into the tight space to stand behind her. “She’s good, isn’t she?” Cat could barely make out his outline in the dark and quickly returned her gaze toward the stage. His physical presence took up so much of the tiny booth she feared suffocating. “She’s superb. Meg should be in New York. Look at her work the crowd, and they don’t even know it.” “She has a way about her, all right.” “She’s a blend of mystery, innocence and eroticism.” She wanted to take back her words as soon as she heard them. “Ah.” Kurt’s breath heated her bare neck. “She’s all of that, all right.” “Do you suppose she’ll ever take the next step?” “Maybe. If she’s supported enough. She’s more insecure about her acting than she lets on.” “I know. I’ve been trying to help her with those insecurities.” “I’ve heard. And I gather she’s helping you with some of yours.” Cat’s heart skipped a beat. She should bite his head off for that comment. But she was suddenly in a joyous mood as the crowd gave the cast a standing ovation. She squealed, “Yes! They loved it.” “Did you think they wouldn’t?” “I never know what to think until it’s over. I better get out there.” She turned around quickly and slammed against Kurt’s solid chest. She caught herself on his shoulders, then suddenly felt his arms holding her steady. In the dark, she couldn’t tell if he was smiling or scowling. And then he brushed his lips across hers. Her breathing stopped.

Now FREE until June 15th - CRUISE INTO EDEN by Lexi Post


Cruise into Eden will remain FREE until June 15th. If you like a little hot "social Sci-fi romance" then you will enjoy the Eden Series. 

After eleven years of forced abstinence, Sci-fi television employee and IT geek Erin Danielson, boards a nude cruise in the hopes of finally getting lucky. It seems her luck has changed when two handsome men with ripped bodies, enticing accents, and hearts of gold invite her into their stateroom. But if this erotic ménage seems too good to be true, then…

Nassic Wild and Wareson Night hail from the planet Eden, where women are scarce, and their mission is simple—meet the woman they’ve been waiting for for the last eleven years, bond with her and take her home. At first all goes according to plan as they pleasure her with their bodies and their special abilities. But when their best intentions lead to the worst results they lose her, along with their hearts.

Now they must find a way to woo her back or return to Eden with no hope for the future.
