Stare Him Down
by Riley Murphy



This Dom’s life is turned upside down when he agrees to enter into a modern-day marriage of
convenience with a woman who’s sassy and vanilla.

Only problem?

She’s not vanilla. And the side of sassy she comes with is sure to get them both into trouble when he finds out.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about an excerpt? Sure! Here you go:

“Before I go anywhere I thought we’d play a game.”

“Aren’t you tired?” He didn’t look up. He just stared with unseeing eyes at one of the numerous envelopes in his hand.

“No. I’d call this game Truth or Dare, but all I have is the magic lasso so we’ll call this a game of honesty to the bone. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?”

Triple goddamn fuck. Only his eyes moved as he looked at her across the table. “A game? Why?”

“It will be fun.” He knew for sure it wouldn’t. “I lasso you first.” She made a big show of tying a loop, and when she looked as if she might actually try to throw it over him, he reached forward and grabbed the coiled end out of her hands.

“I wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself.”

She gave him one of her infamous Da Vinci muse’s smiles, and said, “You have to play by the rules.”

Yes, and if the nasty devil on his shoulder stayed out of this, he would. He ran his finger over the cord that was surprisingly soft, and inclined his head. “I’m listening.”

“You have to answer the question I ask you with total, and I mean absolute truth, so help you God.”

He tried not to grin, but she was so serious he couldn’t help teasing her. “Okay, should we pinkie swear on it?”

She tugged on the end of the cord she held, forcing him to keep a firmer grip. “Listen, if you don’t answer truthfully then there’s no point to any of this.”

Interesting. Did she even realize she’d just admitted she had an agenda so this wasn’t a game per se? “Agreed. The same goes for you when I get my turn, right?”

“Sure.” This quick reply told him she wasn’t thinking about the end game, only the beginning. “I’m ready, are you?” He barely had the chance to nod when she blurted out, “Did you have thoughts today about having sex with me?”

Alrighty. To his mind there were a couple of things here that he needed to pay attention to. Some more obvious than others. First, her conviction. It was clear to him that she’d been planning to hijack him like this for quite some time. Second, she’d be a lousy bridge player because she didn’t have a strategic plan in mind. And third, just like the night in his hotel room a few years ago, she had not one drop of patience. Even now, she seemed barely able to contain herself, waiting for his answer.

And what did that mean?

He had to make his answer count. Better than that. It had to be epic. All-encompassing. Screw it. His answer was going to blow her mind.

A few of Riley’s favorite reviewer quotes:

The Trouble with Misbehaving
by Victoria Hanlen


Love, Betrayal and Redemption

Calista ‘CC’ Collins is used to being the talk of the town. With her scandalous past she’s learnt the hard way that a woman needs to be strong to get what she wants in a man’s world. And what she wants is the infamous Captain Beauford Tollier—roguish son of an earl, notorious blockade-runner and all-round knave of the seas.

However, Captain Beau is not one to be cajoled—he is done with the dangerous sea life and ready to follow the life of the straight and narrow. But with many powerful forces circling around him, Beau doesn’t stand a chance…


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about an Excerpt? Sure! Here you go: 


“Since you burned my letters we still have much to discuss.”

He squared his shoulders. “I think not. Our brief association is at an end. I do not wish to be a part of your mad games. After the night before last—”

“After the night before last?”

“It seems best to allow you your distance.”

He heard a quick intake of breath and a rustle of silk. Her voice seemed to rise in pitch, “Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone what you almost did with crazy ol’ Miss Collins. But then you have lots of secrets, do you not, Captain Tollier? What’s one more?”

“I don’t know what you mean, nor do I care.” He started walking again.

“Looking at all these…lovely portraits, I can see why people whisper you’re the family’s cuckoo.”

Lurching around, he clenched his fists in an effort to control his temper. Not only did the insult shock, it cut into one of his earliest, deepest insecurities. He lowered his voice to a dangerous calm. “You are fortunate to be a woman, madam. Were you a man, such an insult might force me to call you out.”

She stood and gave him a look so sultry it almost begged him to teach her lessons of a different sort.

“Ah yes, call me out. And what should I call you?”

He turned to leave, hoping to prevent saying or doing something he’d regret. Before he’d taken two steps, C.C. said in a voice full of authority, “Mr. Wainwright. Perhaps Captain Scott? Or would it be Cornelius Dolan?”

The hairs on his neck stood straight out.

Book Blast ~ Wanderlust by Bernadette Marie




It's a book blast and there are prizes to be won! I'm featuring Bernadette Marie's book, Wanderlust, today! You'll want to comment. Why? Bernadette will be awarding a $20 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. How cool is that? Want more chances to win? Follow the tour here: http://goddessfishpromotions.blogspot.com/2016/05/book-blast-wanderlust-by-bernadette.html



Wanderlust

by Bernadette Marie


Gia Gallow has traveled the world. Her wanderlust landed her in Georgia where she has created a life for herself away from the petty differences of relatives and domineering ex-lovers. Having settled in America, she has a successful business and dear friends—and the attention of both Dane and Russell Walker. Due to her own family's dramas over dueling hearts, she might have to forget about her feelings for Dane to keep peace within the Walker family, but sometimes even running thousands of miles away can't keep a heart from going after what the heart wants. And Gia's heart wants Dane.


And now for an excerpt:



Dane nearly had to run after his brother he was walking so fast. "Hey!" he yelled, but Russ kept

going.



Finally, he caught up to him and with his hand on his shoulder, turned him around.



"What's up with you?"



Russ shrugged off his hand. "Don't let me bother you. You were busy. Go back and finish what

you were doing."



"What the hell are you so mad about?"



"Nothing," he said and hurried toward his truck. But Dane was right on his heels.



"Don't be an ass. What's wrong with you?"



"Remember that you don't live here, right? So waltzing in and taking the most eligible, most

beautiful woman off the market is a crappy thing to do."



"I beg your pardon?"



"You heard me. I live here. She lives here. We were getting along just fine before you came

along."



"Getting along? Are you telling me you're seeing Gia? Is that what you're saying?"



His brother looked away for a moment then back at him. "No."



"Oh, so you're just pissed I got to her first."



Russ stepped in until they were nearly chest to chest with each other. Dane didn't remember the

two inches Russ grew more than him, but now he saw them.





"Don't worry, though. I'll pick up the pieces when you break her heart and go back to your little

job."



He couldn't help it Dane shoved him against the truck. "I don't think she's a piece of property

that can be claimed with finder's keepers."



Russ shoved back and even raised his fist to him before they both realized that Gia was standing there watching with a hand over her mouth and the bag of gifts for their mother.



Russ lowered his hand, opened the door to the truck, and a moment later he sped away.



Dane scrubbed his hand over his face. "Damn it."



"You forgot these," she said holding the bag out to him.



He took the bag from her. "I'm sorry about that."





"You have to go after him. You have to fix this."



"Fix this? He will be fine. He's a grown man and he doesn't need"



She held up both her hands. "Fix it, Dane. You cannot let him go on like this. Especially when there is nothing to be upset about. The kisswellthe kiss was only"



He stepped in. "Don't tell me you're going to discredit that."



"I will not come between brothers."



"So you and him"



"No. We are just friends." "You said that to me too." "Do not turn this on me."



Out of frustration, he pulled his keys from his pocket. "I'll go after him and talk to him. Can I

see you tonight."



"Bachelorette party. You worry about Russell."



"This sucks," he groaned as he drug his fingers through his hair.



"Good bye, Dane," she said as she turned around and marched back to her store.



He watched her walk away and that amazing feeling that had been stirring inside of him when

he'd kissed her felt like lead now in his gut.



The Lord giving and his damn brother taketh away. Maybe it had been a mistake he thought as

he walked to his mother's car and opened the door. A few more days and he'd leave, returning to his miserable life, but without such distractions.

A Wedding at Meadows Shore
by Eva Charles


Meadows Shore is the childhood home of the five Clayton sisters and the six Harrington brothers, the
family seat where these irresistible characters gather regularly…or whenever they need the comfort of Portuguese home cooking and the love and wisdom of elder women.

After Sophie Clayton catches her husband in bed with a young intern, she creates a new life for herself as the executive director of a failing domestic violence agency. It’s the perfect job for a woman born to fix everything. A friend’s broken heart, a tattered agency, a flat tire—she’ll roll up her sleeves and make it as good as new. Sophie rarely encounters anything she can’t fix…until she meets the devastatingly handsome and insufferably arrogant, Max Parker. One of Boston’s most eligible bachelors, he’s never without a stunning young woman on his arm and in his bed.

When Sophie’s forced to deal with Max, sparks fly, and somewhere in the crossfire of verbal daggers and clever barbs, she discovers his darkest secret.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now for an excerpt!!

His voice took on a husky, seductive quality. “The women I date aren’t interested in my body, Sophie. What interests them is how I pleasure their bodies.”

She stared deep into his icy blue eyes and snickered.

Max never missed even the smallest of details. They were often the difference between success and getting your hat handed to you. Tonight, he noticed Sophie’s eyes betray her, even as she mocked him. Her pupils were dilated, the rich, whiskey-colored irises nearly overtaken by black. I have her attention.

Embolden by her body’s reaction, he took a step closer. He was so close that if she’d been breathing, her breath would’ve warmed his skin. “I can bring much more to your bed than my father does. So…much…more…” He drew out the words, emphasizing each in a voice that oozed sex. “And though I’m not an easy man to impress, I’m sure you’d have no trouble persuading me to finance your agency. None at all,” he drawled.

Neither of them spoke for a long moment, maybe two. The air was charged. The silence dangled between them like a ripe peach, fragrant and swollen, tempting the weakest among them to reach for it first.

“What do you think?” he asked softly, ending the silence.

While waiting for her response, a calculated kind of wait, he resisted the urge to lift his hand and run his fingers through the strands of hair that’d come loose, softly framing her face.

“I think you really are an ass.”

With that, she turned and walked away. Leaving him to gape at her magnificent back.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the Author:

Eva Charles is the author of the multi-titled Meadows Shore Series that chronicles the lives and loves of the Clayton-Harrington family. She invites you to visit their beloved Meadows Shore nestled in the charming seaside town of Fair Harbor, where you’ll enjoy love, laughter, loyalty, and an abundance of mouth-watering food, Portuguese style.

After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkeys, deer, and coyotes roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.

When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Diamond in the Rough
by Lori L. Robinett

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ranch hand Aidan Brackston has built a new life at the Diamond J, and he keeps women at arm’s
length to protect his secret . . . until he walks into the local scrapbook store on an errand for his boss. When he accidentally knocks Gina on her ass, she respond with a slap . . . and the fireworks begin.

Single mom Gina Montgomery has her hands full running a business and taking care of her little boy. The last thing she needs is a man in her life, but when a tall, dark and sexy cowboy strides into her store, she’s reminded that she’s still a young woman with hopes and desires.

Just as passion ignites between Aidan and Gina, her little boy is kidnapped by rustlers. Will the two of them be able to save her little boy . . . even if that means exposing Aidan’s secret?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about an excerpt? Sure! Here you go:

Gina pressed against the Plexiglas window of the store room again, just as the door swung towards her. The door smacked her face with a sharp POP and she fell backwards, landing on her backside with a thump.

Light silhouetted the dark figure in the doorway, radiating around him like a halo. He bent towards her, hand extended, and the halo turned into a cowboy hat. Ah, there was that good looking cowboy she was just thinking about . . .

She reached up and took his offered hand, and he pulled her up so she stood mere inches from him. She'd been right about his height. She looked straight ahead at his broad chest. His muscles filled out his plaid flannel shirt. Dark hairs curled over the shirt where his top two buttons were undone. Her eyes wandered up the curve of his neck, over the strong line of his jaw, and settled on his lips. They were parted slightly, welcoming, inviting. She looked at those amazing blue eyes . . . which were not focused on her eyes.

There was a sharp pop as she slapped his face.


~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the Author:

Lori is the author of four books, and serves as a mentor for aspiring writers. She is a
creative soul trapped in a paralegal’s body. Several years ago, she discovered (and won) National Novel Writing Month and rediscovered the joy of escaping into a world of her own creation.

She lives in rural Missouri with her husband. One very spoiled Miniature Schnauzer and Miniature Beagle allow Lori and her husband to live in their house, and the outside is patrolled by BK (short for Barn Kitty) and Patches (a sweet tom cat stray that missed his calling as a lap cat).

Her novels cover everything from romance to thrillers, but mystery is the thread that binds them all together. Her favorite authors are Tawna Fenske, Tierney James, Colleen Donnelly, Allison Merritt, Lisa Medley, Lea Waite, Susan Mallery, Hugh Howey, HP Mallory and, well, the list goes on and on.

Virtual Book Tour ~ Bound by Oath and Honour by Debbie Peterson


Let's welcome Debbie Peterson to the blog today. She's here with her book, Bound by Oath and Honour. Welcome!! She's got some great prizes up for grabs. Like...a $15 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Want more chances to win? Follow the tour here: http://goddessfishpromotions.blogspot.com/2016/03/nbtm-bound-by-oath-and-honour-by-debbie.html

Debbie sat down to do an interview with me. Read on to see what she has to say!

I am so excited to answer Wendi’s questions today as we continue our Bound by Oath and Honour book tour! So without further adieu…

Describe yourself in three words.

Now that isn’t as easy as it sounds, but let’s go with: Curious, Introspective, and Optimistic.

Cast your book. Tell us who would play the main characters in a movie and why.

This question is always a difficult one for me because the characters I’ve created while writing the
story never resemble anyone famous. Nonetheless, because Wendi asked, we shall do the best we can!

For Micah Berrington I would cast Eduardo Verástegui, because he could be described exactly the way Tala describes her guardian. Handsome. Dark. Mysterious.

For Tala? How about Doutzen Kroes. As far as I am concerned, she has both the “Tala” look and the demeanor I see in the heroine of the story. (Thanks my peeps, for helping me find the perfect couple!)

What’s your favorite love scene from a movie?

The end scene in Princess Bride. The way Westley looks at Buttercup and the kiss to end all kisses, was nothing short of magic!

What’s your wildest fantasy?

Owning a castle in Scotland that’s haunted by a bevy of brawny medieval knights. Of course they would also have to welcome this mortal with open arms. That, my friends, would make for some good writing fodder.

If you were to lose one of your senses, which would you rather lose and why?

Alas, my sense of taste must go because I just can’t imagine life without being able to see the beauty of this earth or hear the song of birds and happy kids. I think it would be tragic to never again know how something feels. Finally, I would be devastated if I couldn’t smell the flowers or what’s cooking—or baking—in the kitchen.

What is the naughtiest thing you did as a kid?

Naughty? Me? I was the most perfect child that ever existed, just ask my mom ;D

So, let’s see… I’m thinking of the line from The Princess Bride (can you tell it’s one of my favorite movies?) when Westley, speaking to Buttercup says, “What hideous sin have you committed lately?” I guess in response I would have to say, “Well Westley, on more than one occasion, I took books out of the library—when I exceeded my limit—without checking them out first.” Don’t worry; I always returned them.

Thanks so much Wendi, for inviting me to share your blog today, it’s been a lot fun. Some of the questions weren’t as easy to answer as one might think, so thank you for the challenge!


Bound by Oath and Honour
by Debbie Peterson

Fresh from her photo shoot in Northern England, wildlife photographer Tala Westbrook makes a promised stop at the family manor in Staffordshire, desperately in need of renovation. Though she didn’t plan to stay longer than it took to find a contractor, she is caught up in an ancient paranormal war. Despite the danger all around, she finds herself falling for the handsome, enigmatic man assigned to protect her.

Micah Berrington, elite guardian from the realm of the Bewitan Fierd, is used to protecting men of strength in the greatest of peril, not a female looking for someone to repair her home. Yet the assignment is far more than it seems and so is the beautiful woman destined to capture his heart, regardless of the cost.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about An Excerpt? Here you go!

After he chambered a round in his rifle, he placed a finger against the trigger. He faced Tala
with lifted hand and palm out. “Wait here while I check out the second floor.”

She gazed at him for several moments as if he had quite lost his mind. “I think not. In case you have forgotten, this house belongs to my family, Micah, not yours.”

“I will not debate the issue with you right now. Either you can wait here as directed, or I will throw you over my shoulder and carry you back to the cottage. I’ll then lock you inside for the remainder of the night. The choice is yours.”

She sucked in a breath while her mouth dropped another notch. “You wouldn’t—”

“Oh, but I would,” he whispered as he leaned in close to her face.

In evidence of his staunch determination, she gritted her teeth. She turned her head to the side. Once again, she refused to meet his gaze. “Fine.”

The dreaded “fine” escaped her lips for the second time in less than ten minutes. This one had a bit more oomph and resentment behind it than did the first. He ignored it. Instead, Micah turned his attention away from her little snit fit and focused on the task ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About the Author:

Debbie is an author of paranormal and fantasy romance because she has a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, making an impossible love possible, and happily ever after endings. She loves animals of every persuasion, music, art, beautiful sunrises, sunsets, the smell of rain, and thunder storms.

When she is not busy conjuring her latest novel, Debbie spends time with the members of her very large family in the lovely, arid deserts of southern Nevada, where some of those spectacular sunsets occur. She also pursues her interests in genealogy—which she also teaches—mythology, and history.

Psychic Readings Done Here
by Tanille Edwards

Three young girls go to a psychic after pooling their allowance money together. It’s been thirteen years and none of the prediction have come true until today. They face turbulent times in their lives that will make them stronger and bring them back together. The power of true, unceasing friendship and love conquers all. And the help of a psychic along the way doesn’t hurt.

The predictions a psychic made thirteen years ago bring three young women at the height of the most critical moments in their lives back together. Through their friendship, these young women learn about love, life, and cherishing what matters most.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now for an excerpt!

Vanessa is sitting in a restaurant with Melanie, a woman in her early twenties with curly, dark hair.

“So anyway,” Melanie says. She is wearing chic business attire and diamond-studded hoop earrings. “He stopped by my cubicle this morning and asked me if I wanted to go with him to a party on Thursday. I told him, calmly, that I have to check my schedule.”

“Oh yeah,” Vanessa says. “That was a good response.”

“So what’s going on in married land?”

“Nothing much.”

“Are you sure? You’re kind of quiet,” Melanie says.

“Well, something strange happened last night,” Vanessa says.

“Like what?”

“When I was putting away the clothes, I saw a note on Peter's tablet. There was a woman's name and phone number on it. And today's date was in tiny print in the corner.”

“Did you ask him about it?” Melanie asks.

“No, I mean, I figured it could belong to a classmate or something.”

“Girl, you should’ve asked about it,” Melanie says.

“Then I woke up in the middle of the night and he was gone. And so was his cell phone.”

“And you didn't ask him about that either?”

Vanessa clasps her wedding rings. “Well, we're married, and I trust him.”

“Who are you trying to convince? Me or yourself? I think...”

“What really bothered me was that we had plans for dinner tonight. And when I reminded him this morning, he said he had a study group meeting tonight.”

“What?” Melanie says. “Did he just pull a study group out of his pocket? Since when does he have a ‘study group’?”

“That's what I said. Sort of. I asked what the study group was for.”

“And?”

“He said it was for some big legal case study for one of his classes,” Vanessa says.

“Did he mention this case before?”

“No! I know you don't really care for Peter, but I need some advice. I'm starting to get suspicious. I mean, I do trust him. But something isn't adding up.”

“All right,” Melanie says. “I have a suggestion. Please just listen to it. I think that you should follow him tonight. See...”

Vanessa yells. “Whaaat! Are you serious? I need real advice, not advice on how to spy on my husband.”

Several restaurant patrons turn around to look at them.

Melanie whispers under her breath. “If he’s cheating, then?”

“He’s not cheating,” Vanessa whispers back.

“Then what are you suspicious of?”

“I don’t know.”

“Girl, if you want the truth you have to find it out firsthand.”

“What do you mean?” She stops for a moment. “You know what, this is absurd,” Vanessa says.

“Peter is not going to tell you the real deal. If he's at a study group, fine. But if he's not, you need to know.”

“I feel so wrong. How dare I follow my husband?”

“I hope we are wrong. I’ll tell you this: You better start wondering how he dare hold a phone conversation in the middle of the night, in your apartment, running up your cell phone bill.”

“I don’t know.”

The waiter comes over.

“You don’t share the bills, Vanessa.”

“How is everything, ladies?”

“Fine. Can we get the check, please?” Melanie asks.

“Yes,” the waiter responds.

How about an Excerpt? Here you go!

From The Inlaw:

They both jumped and froze at the distant shout of, ‘Mom?’

With a nervous giggle, Carla grabbed her prosthetic leg and stood up as she shoved her stump into the socket. It clicked like some kind of deranged cricket as she ratcheted the pin into the lock. Clicked and locked, she cast a panicked glance around until she located her dress, crumpled on the far side of the desk. With a nervous giggle, Carla lunged for it and pulled it hurriedly over her head.

A quick look at John showed that he’d managed to pull on his boxers, but only had one foot in the top of his jeans. Not quick enough by a long shot. Only one thing for it. She headed for the door, to stop her daughter before she could burst into the office and find them like this. Before she pulled it open, she caught John’s eye. He grinned and winked and mouthed, ‘Later.’ Carla smoothed her hair down, swallowed, and took a fortifying breath before venturing into the hallway. She had to suck her cheeks in hard to wipe the silly grin from her face.

Emma watched her from the kitchen doorway, eyes narrowed in suspicion. ‘Where did you get to? I thought you were going for drinks.’

Carla moved toward her, so the young woman had to back up and edge into the kitchen. ‘Sorry. A call came in, and then things … got on top of me.’
