Tricked into a bank robbery gone wrong, Braxton Gamble finds himself shot and unconscious in Priscilla’s bed. Can they survive long enough to find a love more precious than gold?

 

Read an Excerpt

She loosened her grip on the cookie and it landed in her lap. “You’re planning to get married? Yet you were kissing me in front of everyone only moments ago?”

“Only because you’re who I plan to marry.” He grinned.

She retrieved her cookie, left it on the table and returned the plate to the pantry.

“Hey,” he said, “I wasn’t through with those.”

“Too bad.” Hands firmly planted on her hips, she glared at him. “I have no intention of remarrying, and if I did, what makes you think it would be to you?”

Braxton got to his feet. “I’m crazy about you, Pris, and I think you care for me too.”

“Well, you’re wrong. Get out.”

Moving around the table toward her, he said, “Okay, Pris. Don’t get your dander up.”

Relieved that he was going to leave quietly, she relaxed, but as soon as she did, he reached out and hauled her into his arms. Before she could voice a complaint, he kissed her. Again. She tensed and tried to break free.

Oh, but it felt so good. While cursing herself for not fighting harder, she kissed him back. A tingling began below her abdomen and she felt flushed and hungry for something she couldn’t name, except that she wanted more of what Braxton offered. Her hands slipped behind his head and she pressed closer, noticing he was ready for her.

“Lord, but I could go on kissing you forever,” he murmured.

“Shut up and just do it,” she whispered back.

She felt him smile against her lips, but not for long. He slid his tongue along the seam of her lips until she opened to him, then slipped it inside. He tasted like oatmeal and coffee. Sweet, heady, and strong.

He pressed his aroused body closer to her, and she couldn’t help wriggling. Her heart pounded, her blood on fire.

The next thing she knew, he’d picked her up and was heading for the stairs. Priscilla knew what he planned and opened her mouth to object.

A knock came on the door. “Braxton, are you in there?” Etta hollered. “Irish and Logan have been sighted riding toward the Lucky Lady. You coming with me?”

“Aw, hell,” he muttered, letting Priscilla’s feet touch the floor. “I gotta go. I’m sorry, Pris, darlin’.”

“It doesn’t matter. What we were doing was insane anyway.”

He glowered at her. “You still going to claim you don’t want me?”

“I don’t want to marry.”

“That’s fine with me. We’ll just live together.”

“Ha! Get out of here.”

“I’m going.” He stalked to the door and slammed it behind him.

His Girl by Megan Slayer Book Tour

Today is my stop of the virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions for Megan Slayer and her book ‘His Girl’. Megan will be awarding a prize pack featuring a necklace made by the author to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour. There is a link to the giveaway at the end of this post.

Mary Allen’s never been a guy magnet. Most men are put off by her confidence in the workplace. Not Sebastian. He kindles a passion she thought was long dead. After one scene, she’s ready to jump back into the lifestyle. But can a workplace romance really work?

Sebastian Paul came back to the Underground after time away to figure out what he wanted from his life. He can’t escape the desire or the need for the scene, but he hasn’t found his perfect sub—until he spots Mary. He never expected to see her at the club. She works with him, and although she oozes confidence, he notes her desire to submit. He wants Mary as his girl. No question. But will she want him in return?

When passion ignites, love will find a way.

 

Enjoy an Excerpt

“If by it, you mean the fumbling, confusing start of something with Seb, then yes. Don’t sell yourself short. Give him a chance, too. He’s not like the other guys,” Andi said.

“You sound like a motivational poster.”

“Sorry.” Andi giggled. “Just trying to help.”

“You are.” She sighed. “I need to go. I’m working a six-to-two tomorrow and need to get some sleep.” She’d never be able to settle down, but still.

“Blech. That’s too early.” Andi stood. She left the room with Mary. “Good luck.”

“Thanks.” She hugged Andi. “I know you’re not a morning person, but you’re awesome. I’m going to lean on you.”

“I expect it.” Andi waved. “See you.”

Mary waved and left. She headed to her car. Her brain buzzed from her session with Sebastian and the pep talk from Andi. She liked being on display, and Sebastian knew how to make her feel alive while giving her release. Many other Doms had given her orgasms and played to her needs, but they hadn’t scratched the exact itch within her.

She drove home and sang along with the radio. Once at her apartment, she unpacked her bag, downed a glass of water, then brushed her teeth. She noticed her reflection in the mirror. She gasped. Damn. Her hair was a mess and her makeup smudged. She hadn’t checked her look before she played with Sebastian. He probably thought she didn’t care about her appearance.

Oh well. She didn’t have time to think about her ridiculous hair and makeup. She’d probably mussed herself during her shower. That had to be the case.

She finished brushing her teeth, then washed her face before falling into bed. She needed sleep or she’d be crap at work.

Mary prided herself at being at the top of her game at the air traffic control center. Lives depended on her doing her job. To do the best she could, she needed to settle down.

Within a few minutes and white noise playing in the background, she managed to fall asleep. For the first time in a long while, she didn’t dream and managed to relax.

Seeking Fate by Brenda Drake Blog Tour

Tour Date:

September 3-7, 2018

Today is my stop of the blog tour for Brenda Drake and her third book of the Fate Series. There is a wonderful guest post from the author, a fabulous giveaway and links to all books in this magical paranormal romance!

 

Seeking Fate (The Fated #3) by Brenda Drake
Publication Date:  September 3, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crave

Fate changer Daisy Layne is nervous about searching Europe for a firstborn son doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday. But she’s the only one who can save him. No pressure or anything. She needs the help of guide Andrei Vasile, who she’s been talking to online for two years. Still, meeting him in person…that’s a whole different story.

Andrei is determined to keep Daisy safe, even if touching her could kill him. At least, that’s what his family has told him about fate changers like Daisy. She’s strong and beautiful, and it’s his job to keep her alive. Unfortunately, what she doesn’t know could kill her.

Save a life. End a curse. And never, ever get too close…

Touching Fate (Fated) Book 1

Aster Layne believes in physics, not psychics. A tarot card reading on the Ocean City Boardwalk should have been a ridiculous, just-for-fun thing. It wasn’t. Aster discovers she has a very unscientific gift-with a simple touch of the cards, she can change a person’s fate.

Reese Van Buren is cursed. Like the kind of old-school, centuries-old curse that runs in royal families. Every firstborn son is doomed to die on his eighteenth birthday-and Reese’s is coming up fast. Bummer. He tries to distract himself from his inevitable death…only to find the one person who can save him.

Aster doesn’t know that the hot Dutch guy she’s just met needs her help-or that he’s about to die.
But worst of all…she doesn’t know that her new gift comes with dark, dark consequences that can harm everyone she loves.

Cursing Fate (Fated) Book 2

There’s something strange about the Layne sisters, and Wade Diaz wants nothing to do with them. Especially the one who ripped his heart out and set it on fire before tossing it in the garbage several months ago. Iris. He can’t even think her name without unconsciously rubbing the spot in his chest where she left a gaping hole. But now her sisters are claiming some evil spirit is after his soul, and Iris is the only one who can save him. Well, at least his heart would stop hurting, right? Didn’t sound so bad.

Iris Layne has always been the sweet sister. She’s kind to everyone, including her best friend Wade… Until she makes a horrible mistake and breaks his heart. All she wants is to go back to before ‘the dumping’. Of course, Wade would rather see her in hell first. But then Iris touches her sister’s tarot cards and unleashes an evil curse intent on playing a deadly game where no one Iris loves is safe, especially Wade.

How do you convince someone they need your help when you’re the one who hurt them most?

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Brenda Drake grew up the youngest of three children, an Air Force brat, and the continual new kid at school. Her fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. With kids of all ages populating Brenda’s world, it was only fitting that she would choose to write stories with a bend toward the fantastical for both younger readers and the young at heart. And because she married her prince charming, there’s always a romance warming the pages. Her favorite books are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, Kings Row by Henry Bellamann, and Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. When she’s not writing, she hosts workshops and contests for writers such as Pitch Wars and Pitch Madness on her blog, and holds Twitter pitch parties on the hashtag, #PitMad. In her free time, Brenda enjoys hanging out with her family, haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops, or just reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

Guest Post by Brenda Drake

If I Knew Then What I Know Now About Writing…

Starting out as a new writer so many years ago, I would just write and see where the story took me, creating characters and worlds as I went. Sometimes it worked out, sometimes I’d get stuck not knowing how to finish the story. Now that I work on deadlines most of the time, plotting out a story has really helped me to stay on track and get the book done on time. I don’t do a really detailed plot. It’s more or less a graph; a road map. I still like letting the story lead me to places I couldn’t imagine going before I got into the characters and their world, but the overall plot remains the same. If I knew back then, when I was just starting that plotting was fun and made writing easier, some of those cool ideas I had wouldn’t have ended up in my unfinished work folder on my computer.

How do you write? Are you a plotter or a pantser?
