From USA Today bestselling author J.L. Berg comes an enemies to lovers stand-alone romance.

I was waiting for my life to start…

After forgoing college to help run the family business, I’d given up on the idea of a different life, and finally made peace with something a bit simpler.

That is, until Leilani Hart showed up.

There is nothing simple about about the hotel heiress and the minute our eyes meet, I know my carefree existence is a thing of the past. She has big ideas for our sleepy town and the motel she plans on transforming into a spa destination for the rich and famous.

She’ll have to go through me first.

From our first meeting, we’re like fire and ice and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to pin her down and melt some of those frigid layers right off.

But, my town comes first. Or, at least, that’s what I keep telling myself. Unfortunately, my heart and head don’t seem to agree and soon, I don’t know where my loyalties lie.  I’ve never believed in love, but for her, I just might be willing to risk it all.

Even if it means falling… for the enemy.

Ryan

I missed home.

I missed my crazy family.

But I needed to get away for a while.

Figure out who I was. Where I belonged.

When I packed my bags and moved to Melbourne I had no plans.

I just needed time and space.

I didn’t count on meeting that one person who could change my life.

The one person who could help me break free.

 

Alex

My family sucked ass.

Except for my brother.

He was all I had these days, at least in terms of family.

In every other part of my life though, I was killing it.

My business was booming. I had great friends who I partied Saturday nights away with.

Then Ryan stumbled into my life.

I thought I had my shit together, until he upended my world.

He changed me.

I’m just me. A clumsy, introverted, bubble bath loving, chocoholic who would rather read a book than go shopping. And god forbid if you try and make me shoe shop!

I’m one of four kids to school teacher parents. A wife to a football obsessed husband. Mother to a fur-baby who isn’t aware of how big he is. Aunt to the most crazy/adorable little girls. And sister to two very determined sisters and one easy going brother.

I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.

I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and when I do have spare time, you’ll find me in the writing cave.

Release Blitz: ‘First A Lady’ by Jade Cary

Title: First A Lady
Author: Jade Cary
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 14, 2018
Blurb

The President of the United States has been assassinated.

Grace Coolidge is now a widow.

She will never forget the horror of that day.

Or the betrayal of those who were sworn to protect the president.

But she’ll also never forget John Marin, the Secret Service agent who carried her to safety and saved her sanity.

Now she is forced to accept protection in order to fulfill her public duties, and he is the only man she can trust to protect her.

After the President was assassinated on his watch, John sold everything he owned and left town. He wants no part of that life, and is perfectly content with good rum and willing women.

But when Grace tracks him down and begs him to protect her, he finds it hard to resist the beautiful, haunted woman. He knows there is more to this than leading her through crowds with his hand on her back. She is hiding something, and he will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Whatever her past, she is a lady first, and he will protect her with his life, no matter the cost.

It was only two weeks, she said. But he knows better.

A lifetime wouldn’t be enough with this woman.

Author Bio

Jade Cary wrote elaborate fantasies in her head from the time she was a small child. The fantasies included strong men and strong, loving relationships. She discovered romance novels quite by accident, once she’d devoured everything by Stephen King and Joseph Wambaugh. Desperate for something new to read, she picked up The Other Side of Midnight by Sidney Sheldon. After that, she found Scruples, by Judith Krantz. A whole new world opened up, and she buried herself in everything these authors wrote. She was fascinated with how the stories were able to capture her and take her to another place. But, more than that, she paid attention to how the words, the writing, made her feel.

She discovered a talent for writing later in life, after careers were had and kids were moving about on their own. She falls in love on a daily basis with her characters, and hopes readers will do the same.

Her first novel, The Point of it All, is the story of two people brought together under extraordinary circumstances. An unapologetic alpha hero who will stop at nothing to keep the woman he loves safe, and a strong, intelligent heroine who finds his supercilious, high-handed ways trying at best, find each other as both fight for freedom, independence, and ultimately love.

A Southern California girl born and bred, her travels to exotic locales inspire rich storytelling, her husband inspires the romance, and her kids inspire the laughs. Jade lives in SoCal with her family.

Title: Long Hard Truckers
Series: Sugar County Boys #2
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 13, 2018

 

Blurb

Eighteen wheels, four rough hands, and two big…stick-shifts.

These two hard-driving, filthy-talking truckers are ready to ride all night.

And one sassy sorority girl is about to find out they’ve got more than just a big rig for her to ride…

The two of us? We’ve seen our share of hell. But after we left the Marines, all we wanted was our big rig truck, our own rules, and the freedom of the open road.

But when we see her – a pretty little thing in daisy dukes and cowgirl boots at the roughest truck stop around, there ain’t no way we’re not stepping in when trouble comes knocking.

Blonde, blue-eyed, and oozing innocence and temptation. Sierra McCree come’s crashing into our world with trouble on her heels. She’s more than we ever bargained for – and more than we ever thought two roughnecks like us would ever find. And once we’ve got the teasing little sorority girl on our rig, she’s gonna be in it for the longhaul.

Two big hard men like us should stay away from a flirty little tease like Sierra. Especially with the truck full of contraband we’re hauling for some very not nice people. But one teasing glimpse of her soft curves, and one taste of that bratty mouth, and we’re both addicted – obsessed, and driven to make her ours.

Cause the two of us? Well we share everything. Including her.

And out here?

Well, it’s not just the road that’s long and hard.

Jaxson Carter

My life, my rules:

  1. My business is my life and vice versa.
  2. Vulnerability is not an option.
  3. Relationships are too distracting (see rule 1 and 2.)

Hard lessons learned at an early age made me the success I am today, and I would never yield having the upper hand. Then Grace swept into my life. She’s beautiful, funny, and has a big heart that could only be broken by a guy like me. But I want her. She might be the biggest risk I’ve ever encountered, with the biggest stakes.

 

Grace Hart

My life, their rules:

  1. My business is their business.
  2. Smile – someone is always watching.
  3. Forget having a sex life. (see rule 1 and 2)

Life in a fishbowl isn’t easy, especially when it comes to dating. I attract a lot of losers simply because I’m nice. And if a better prospect comes along, there’s my dad, ready to send them running with just a look. Until Jaxson. He’s bold and sexy. But I can tell he’s withholding a piece of himself from me, and I’m an all or nothing kind of girl.

 

He wants me on his terms. I want him without terms. To get what we want, we might both have to go Against the Rules.
