Hot for You (1)


A Summerville Novel #7

Fire and Icing Book 2

Too hot to handle…

Faith Miller has faith in two things—her surrogate firehouse family, and her own two hands—and she needs a man in her life like a fish needs a bicycle. Growing up watching her mom get used and discarded by one deadbeat boyfriend after another has left Faith jaded, and determined not to fall into the same trap. But when Mick Whitehouse moves back to Summerville, Faith’s happy, single life is turned upside down. The hunky carpenter is a far cry from the little boy she used to wrestle with on the playground in elementary school. Mick’s all grown up, tempting as sugar coated sin, and determined to seduce Faith into forgetting all her rules.

One kiss under the mistletoe and Mick Whitehouse knows that he wants Faith Miller. Bad. After years of lukewarm relationships with the wrong kind of girls, Mick is powerfully drawn to Summerville’s only female firefighter, and determined not to let her push him away. Beneath Faith’s tough exterior is a heart of gold, and the chemistry between them is four-alarm hot. But just as he finally convinces Summerville’s most confirmed bachelorette to take a chance on love, an old girlfriend waltzes into town and drops a bombshell in Mick’s lap.

As Faith and Mick come to terms with the shocking news, Faith must choose: let fear of repeating her mother’s mistakes send her running, or have faith in the man she’s come to love?


 “You,” Faith said with a disgusted shake of her head, her tone inferring that finding Mick starting across the street toward her was only slightly less disgusting than discovering she’d stepped in a steaming pile of dog doo. “What are you doing here?”

“I live above the bakery now.” Mick forced a smile, refusing to take Faith’s scowl at face value. She’d acted irritated with him at the Fireman’s Ball, too, but she’d also kissed him like his mouth contained the last gasp of air in a burning building.

Things weren’t always what they seemed with Faith, which was part of the reason he found her so damned interesting.

“Great,” she said with a sigh, swinging her backpack over one shoulder. “When did that happen?”

“Last week, right after the store opened.” Mick stepped onto the sidewalk beside her. “And not long after Jake and Naomi got engaged. A lot of things have changed while you’ve been gone.”

Faith snorted in a way that Mick found inexplicably sexy. “Duh. I knew that was going to happen. I knew before anyone. I have a phantom limb that tingles when people are getting ready to get hitched, and it was tingling big time for those two.”

Mick grinned. “A phantom limb?”

“Yes,” she said, standing up straighter, her posture making it clear she wasn’t in the mood to be teased, which of course only made Mick want to tease her more.

“So, where was this limb before it became a phantom, marriage-foretelling limb?” he asked, letting his eyes roam up and down Faith’s body, disturbed to realize that he found her sexier in orange pants and an oversized jacket than he’d found Nina in her skimpy dress. “Was it a third arm, or a third leg?”

“It was a vestigial tail,” she said with a straight face. “And I know you don’t want to come on to a girl who used to have a tail, so take a step back, Whitehouse.”

“I wouldn’t care if you still had a tail, Miller,” he said, ambling closer, until their frosty breath mingled between their faces. “I’d still want to take you out.”

Faith’s eyes narrowed. “Stop it,” she said in a softer voice. “We talked about this.”

“We did not,” Mick said, deliberately playing dumb. “I don’t remember any talk about your tail. If I had, I would have asked Maddie to knit you a tail warmer instead of that horrible vest she made me for Christmas.”

Faith’s lips quirked up at the edges. It was a flicker of a smile, but enough to give Mick hope.

“Come on,” he said. “Give me a chance. Let me take you and your tail out to dinner.”

“I never had a tail, and I certainly don’t have one now,” she said, then added after a beat, “As for the other…I appreciate the offer, but I’m not interested.”

“Liar,” Mick said, knowing he was right when Faith’s eyes widened and a spark flickered in their warm brown depths.

“I think you’re interested,” he continued. “And I think if I kissed you right now, you’d kiss me back the way you did at the ball.”



Hot for You takes you on a sexy road trip that you wish would never end. The chemistry between Mick and Faith is smokin hot. I love how strong Faith is and how she puts Mick in his place. He also becomes Micks hero in his time of need. What else would you expect from a sexy firewoman. Mick has to face the fact that he wants more out of his relationship with Faith. There is no way that she will become just another notch on his bedpost. But can he convince her that he is worth her risking her heart before it’s too late? I love the Fire and Ice series so far and am excited to see what Jessie has in store next.

If you like sexy and passionate romance where an alpha female firewoman can light her man’s fire, you will enjoy Hot For You.


Jessie Evans gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sassy, Southern romances she always wanted to read.

She’s married to the man of her dreams, and together they’re raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a tree house in the boonies. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she’s not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and wandering the woods, glass of wine and camera both in hand, on the lookout for Bigfoot.

A southern girl, born and bred, Jessie loves writing Southern romances with just the right amount of sizzle, and hopes you’ll enjoy her stories set in the fictional town of Summerville, Georgia.

Laura Kaye Hard As You Can Blog Tour + Review + ***Giveaway***


HardAsYouCan Cvr Final


Five dishonored soldiers.

Former Special Forces.

One last mission.

These are the men of Hard Ink.

 Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he’s shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister’s sake, Crystal can’t get too close. Until her job and Shane’s mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed.

Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation. Nor can he walk away from Crystal. The gorgeous waitress is hiding secrets she doesn’t want him to uncover. Too bad. He’s exactly the man she needs to protect her sister, her life, and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this good, you hold on as hard as you can–and never let go.


 With one last deep breath, Crystal pulled the dressing room door open. And walked right into a big, male body.

Crystal gasped. “You can’t be back here!” She grabbed Shane’s shirt with both hands and hauled him into the dressing room, then locked the door. “What the hell are you doing? You’re going to get me killed.” She’d meant the words figuratively, of course, but in point of fact, they possessed some literal truth.

His gaze was hard and lethal as steel. “I saw you run past the door.”

And?” she said, exasperation using up every bit of her patience.

I was worried.”

He was . . . worried? Even after he saw me . . . ?

Why?” she said.

He muttered under his breath, his fists clenching and unclenching. “I take it that was Bruno?”

Crystal’s gaze dropped to the floor, the one she wished would open up and swallow her. She nodded.

Well, I saw him grab you, Crystal. He might as well have mauled you—” Shane raked his fingers through his hair, messing up the neatly combed style that highlighted the blond.

Crystal grabbed his hands. “Don’t do that. You’re messing up your comb-over disguise,” she said. Using her own fingers, she straightened his hair, all the while the realization sank in that he wasn’t mad because she’d kissed Bruno, he was mad because Bruno had kissed her. Shane went still under her touch. Her face heated and, sure enough, his gaze blazed at her. She yanked her hands away. “You have to leave—”

Not yet.” A raw, aggressive masculinity poured off him, and Shane shook his head. “Not until you hear what I have to say.” He stepped closer.

But, Shane—”

No. What he did out there, that wasn’t okay with you. Jesus. I could see it in your eyes, your body, the way your fucking hands shook.” He heaved a deep breath, like he was attempting to calm himself. “And if it wasn’t okay with you, it’s sure as hell not okay with me.” Closer, yet. So close his chest brushed hers. “In point of fact, I have a major fucking problem with a male forcing a woman to do anything,” he said, his eyes burning with molten silver. “But let me be clear, Crystal. Seeing him all over you like that would do bad things to me even if you wanted his attention. So my intentions here”—he pursed his lips and shook his head—“they’re not all honorable. Because I want you. I want you so bad I can hardly breathe.”

The room spun around Crystal, and butterflies looped within her belly. “Shane,” she whispered, dumbstruck by his declaration. Nervous energy exploded within her until she thought she might burst into a thousand pieces. “Please. We can talk later,” she rushed. “You have to go.”

You promise? Because I’m not done here. Not by a long shot.”

My Review

4 Stars

Hard As You Can is filled with action, intrigue, and suspense.  I could not stop turning the pages to see what would happen next.  This story tackles some very sensitive issues and is not for the faint of heart.

Shane McCallan is a smoking hot Military Alpha Hero.  When he busts into Confessions to save a friends brother he never expected to run right into the most delicate and beautiful woman he had ever seen.  Crystal freaked when she accidentally ran directly into Shane.  Shane saw a sexy, scared, and skittish little beauty and was shocked when Crystal asked that he hit her.  From that moment Shane knew that he would never forget Crystal and would do anything to get her out of there.

“There was a call.  They’ll be coming”, she whispered… “I have to scream now, and you have to hit me.”


“If you don’t. they’ll know that I helped you.  And I can’t…” What am I doing?  Jesus, what am I doing?  “You have to.  Please.”

The reason I say that this story is not for the faint of heart is because it deals with sexual abuse, torture, and sex trafficking.  Eventually it is revealed that Crystal has been tortured and raped in order to pay off her fathers debt and to protect her sister Jenna.  Bruno Ashe, the man that saved Crystal from the beatings is a monster himself.  He is rough and uses her like she is nothing but a rag doll.

“What? What’s the matter?”

“He hit you.  Again.”

Damn.  The mark was so much lighter this morning.  Crystal had hoped Jenna wouldn’t notice..

Can Shane rescue Crystal and Jenna or is Crystal in way too deep?  This suspenseful and dark romance will have you sitting on the edge of your seat hoping and praying that Shane and his team are successful.  I fell in love with Shane  McCallan with his need to protect Crystal and keep her safe.  The only reason I gave this read a 4 star instead of 5 star review is that the ending was really abrupt.  I would have liked to have seen a little bit more closure.  I am very excited about Hard to Hold On To.  Jenna needs a happily ever after.

Edgy, sexy, and full of suspense! A great read from a great new author!”

 “I’m going to let Mark take me out.”

His jaw ticked. “Don’t be stupid, Reese.”


He cut her off with his mouth. He cupped her face in his big palm and brushed his lips across hers. He was warm and gentle.

And from the first brush of his lips, she wanted more.

Maybe tomorrow she’d blame the tequila or maybe she’d blame the lingerie shopping or the dirty stories she’d been logging into her notebook. Maybe she’d blame their tragic beginnings and her endless months of waiting for him to want her, but right now she didn’t even need an excuse. She moaned against him, loving the feel of his mouth, the light scratch of his scruff. Ben was so painfully male. A hot and delicious, long-denied craving.

Ben slanted his mouth over hers and slipped his tongue inside. He tasted like beer. Like male. Like something wicked and addictive. He wasn’t one of those rushed and sloppy kissers. He kissed like it was making love. Like he had all the time in the world. Like his most important task was kissing her. It was a kiss she’d known once and had never forgotten.

He slid his hands under her jaw and into her hair.

Reese grabbed a fistful of his shirt in her hand and pulled him closer, thinking of his eyes on her in the dressing room, thinking of the only other night they’d kissed.

He slid a hand behind her ass and lifted her, pressing her between the wall and his body and nestling his hard-on right between her legs. She gave a moan of approval and rubbed her tongue against his, exploring his mouth for all she was worth. She reached around his neck and slipped her fingers into his hair, tugging gently. Groaning, he pressed himself even closer to her. She cursed the day denim was invented. She wanted closer, closer even as part of her brain told her this was a mistake, told her to end this before they ruined everything.

He tore his mouth from hers and latched onto her neck. Sucking, nibbling, tasting until her eyes closed and she arched into him.

His teeth grazed the shell of her ear. His breath was hot as he whispered, “I’ll be damned if I’m going to let my brother help you with the best parts of this program.”

Ink Inspired and Ink Reunited by Carrie Ann Ryan Blog Tour + Review



From the streets of New Orleans and the heat of Midnight Ink, comes the happy ever after for a character whose story was begged to be told.

Sassy Bordeaux is the Midnight Ink receptionist, honorary godmother, best friend to many, and matchmaker expert. In the past two months, she’s watched eight couples fall in love, make mistakes, and find their happy endings. Though she might have had hand in each of those, she’s yet to find the peace she’s desired. When the men from her past come into Midnight Ink, she’s forced to face what she left behind and what could happen if she lets go of her pain and finds a future she deserves.

Rafe Chavez and Ian Steele remember their time with Sassy like it was yesterday, yet have worked hard to move on. Or at least try to. Now they’re both back in New Orleans for the woman they loved and for the connection they shared with each other. It will take more than the usual groveling, pleading and begging for these three to overcome their history, but once they take that step, the streets of New Orleans will never be the same.



Smokin Hot!!!  These two boys know what they want and will do anything to get Sassy back.  Sassy lives up to her namesake and then some.  She is vibrant, beautiful, and lovable.  I will warn you that this novella is MMF & MFM.  Sassy gets quite turned on when she finds her men together.  Carrie Ann Ryan is a master at menage.  If you are a Carrie Ann Ryan virgin then this novella would be a great first time read.  Ink Reunited is spicy and sexy as hell.  I have a feeling this will not be the last we see of Sassy.

Shepard Montgomery loves the feel of a needle in his hands, the ink that he lays on another, and the thrill he gets when his art is finished, appreciated, and loved. At least that’s the way it used to be. Now he’s struggling to figure out why he’s a tattoo artist at all as he wades through the college frat boys and tourists who just want a thrill, not a permanent reminder of their trip. Once he sees the Ice Princess walk through Midnight Ink’s doors though, he knows he might just have found the inspiration he needs.

Shea Little has spent her life listening to her family’s desires. She went to the best schools, participated in the most proper of social events, and almost married the man her family wanted for her. When she ran from that and found a job she actually likes, she thought she’d rebelled enough. Now though, she wants one more thing—only Shepard stands in the way. She’ll not only have to let him learn more about her in order to get inked, but find out what it means to be truly free.

This is the prequel to the Montgomery Ink series. It is also found in the Midnight Ink Bundle.

My Review


Sweet and Sexy.  The chemistry between Shep and Shea ignites a passion in Shep like he has never felt before.  Shea is a spicy little sprite that has him spinning on his heels.  She is also in  need of rescuing and Shep is just the man for the job.  I adored this novella and cannot wait for Montgomery Ink.  Carrie does a masterful job with her character development and she had me falling in love with Shep and Shea from the very beginning.  Ink Inspired will have your heart racing and your panties on fire.

Last Call, #1

Adult Contemporary Romance

Releasing February 17th, 2014

Amazon | Barnes and Noble


He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.

Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.

What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.

Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.



Holy hotness Hunter Markham…He knows what he wants and he takes it!!!  Gabby might still be upset about how things went with their first kiss but she will just have to get over that.  I mean seriously, how can she turn down a smokin hot pro-surfer that just happens to really care about her.

I love the characters in this story.  Sawyer is a master at character development.  If you have read the Off Series you know this.  Gabby is a contractor.  I love it!  A woman in a man’s field doing a hell of job all while being sexy.  A woman after my own heart.  And what guy would not drool over a naked woman in nothing but a tool belt and some fuck me heels.  Not that Sawyer was thinking that, or anything like that, when she wrote this.  The other thing that I absolutely loved about this story is Brody.  I am dying to know more about Brody and what happened to him. I seriously can’t wait until his story comes out.

Gabby and Hunter are combustible.  She is a spitfire and he is like a moth to a flame.  The more she sasses him the more he wants her.  This story was just the pick me up that I needed after finishing a few emotional roller coasters.  It was light and refreshing and made me feel all warm and fuzzy.  Gabby is a sexy minx and is the perfect yin to Hunters yang.

On The Rocks is an escape to the beach filled with sexy and flirty banter by day followed by lusciously sexy and passionate nights.

Discovering that her boyfriend is storing enough drugs to supply a small country, she looks for an escape route. He’s standing in the doorway – standing in the way of her freedom.
Mystic has nothing left – no family, no friends, no one she can rely on. She is all alone and frightened. Managing to get past her ex, she flees, running to the other side of the country, landing in Seattle, she changes her appearance, her name, her life.

After a year, she begins to feel safe. Her ex won’t find her. She’s beginning to pick up the pieces of her once shattered existence and carve out a new world for herself.

That is, until a tall, well-dressed man shows up at her job and tells her they need to talk – and he knows her real name. Fleeing to get away from him, she rushes to the back room and grabs her Taser. When she hits him with it, she thinks she’s home free.

She’s not.

All Mystic has done is really tick off Bryson Winchester, and all he’s trying to do is help her by getting her scum of an ex off the streets.

Mystic has a choice to make. Is this a man she can believe in? Is any man worthy of her precious trust? She’ll find the answers, though they may not be what she expects or wants – her entire world is about to be turned upside down, because not only will she find there are some men out there worth trusting – she will find out the secret of her birth – the reality of who she really is.

Some things should stay in the past – and others… Other things will come back with a vengeance.


“It took a long time to find you, Ms. Elton.”

        Oh, no. Oh, no. Misty looked up into the steady gray gaze of the giant of a man standing in front of her. No! She was safe. It had been a year — a full year. It was only a few months ago that she had let down her guard, had decided it was safe to live again, had gone back to her natural hair color.

        Jesse had moved on, surely. He wouldn’t have stayed single this long. He had to have a woman to boss around — to beat up on, by now. He would still hate her, still want her dead, but he wouldn’t still be searching for her. There was just no possible way.

        “I…uh…I don’t know who you’re referring to,” she stuttered, and she crept toward the door to the back room. She was working a crappy job at a fast-food joint. It was nondescript, possibly even considered a bit seedy, and they hadn’t blinked when she’d given them her false name, her poorly done fake ID. She sure as heck wouldn’t eat the food there, not with their lax views on hygiene. They hadn’t even made her get a food handlers card. But, the job was working for her for now, allowing her to save up for her next move – though she wasn’t saving much.

        If she could just get through the door, get to her locker, then she’d be able to grab her Taser. She’d started leaving it in her purse just a few months ago. Up until that point, she’d carried it on her, keeping the small, but hopefully effective, device in her pocket, just in reach of her shaking fingers.

        This was what happened when you grew lax. This would be what killed her.

        “Please don’t be afraid. I’m here to help you.”

        “I don’t need help. You have the wrong person,” she said, her voice more steady. He was watching her move toward the door, but he wasn’t taking a menacing step toward her — wasn’t reaching for the gun she knew he had to have on him.

        She was close, so close. Inching a bit closer to the door, she kept her eyes on his hands. Those would tell her his next move. She’d become an expert at reading Jesse through his hands. The second they clenched she had known she was in trouble.

        This man’s hands were sitting idly at his hips, just kind of hanging there. “Can I please sit down with you for a few minutes of your time? I won’t ask you to go anywhere alone with me.” His voice, she was sure, was supposed to convey trust.

        That only made her more suspicious.

        “Sorry. I have to get something from the back room.” She took her chances and darted through the door, not looking back as she made her way to her locker. Thankfully, it was open, since it was only her and one other kid on shift, who she actually trusted. She quickly reached into her purse.

        When her fingers clasped around the small Taser, she felt her fear dwindling. It wasn’t as deadly as a gun, but it would knock a large man down long enough for her to get away.

        “Ms. Elton, please–”

        He’d followed her. And he was grabbing her arm.

        Misty didn’t hesitate. She turned back to face him and pushed the button on her weapon. His eyes widened with shock followed by a shot of pain as thousands of volts of electricity traveled through his skin into his stomach.

        He released her arm, and Misty took a step, planning on getting the hell away — far away from him and this place. It was time to find a new city. She’d stayed too long, far longer than she had originally planned, but her car had died, and she hadn’t saved enough to move again yet. Almost but not quite. The heck with it now, though. She’d take a bus, and live in a shelter for a while.

        She wouldn’t be returned to Jesse, not ever again.

        When the man’s hand snaked out and grabbed her leg, tripping her, Misty gasped. She got ready to use the stun gun again, longer this time.

        “I don’t think so,” he growled between clenched teeth. He smacked the gun from her hand and pinned her beneath him.

Lauren Blakely’s Caught Up In Love Series *Cover Reveal*

We are so excited to bring to you Lauren Blakely’s new covers for CAUGHT UP IN US and PRETENDING HE’S MINE today! Lauren gave us a special message to share with you about why the covers are changing.

Message from Lauren:

Caught Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine are my first two books, and while I have great affection for the original covers and the way readers responded to those two romances, I wanted the covers to better match the look of the rest of my books. I began working with the Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations starting with Trophy Husband and she went on to also design Playing With Her Heart’s cover as well as my No Regrets series. I love the work she did on those books, and while she was busy creating the cover for my next novel, Night After Night (releasing in May!), I asked Helen Williams at All Booked Out to do a cover makeover for Caught Up in Us and Pretending He’s Mine so that those could match Playing With Her Heart’s look. Helen does amazing work and has done many graphics for me and other book covers, so I knew she would be able to do a brilliant redo — she also redid the covers in only one weekend!! It was a fast turnaround and I am thrilled with the new looks, and especially how well all the books play together now. And to celebrate the redesign as well as the one-year anniversary of Pretending He’s Mine this month, I will be offering Pretending He’s Mine for free on iBooks starting today and through the weekend! (It’s possible Amazon might price match the free offering, but I can’t guarantee what Amazon will do so if you want to read it for free, snag it on iBooks!)

Aren’t they gorgeous? See below for individual pictures of each new cover and all of the information on each, as well as where you can find Lauren and stalk-we mean follow-her!

A second
chance at first love…
Five years ago, Kat Harper fell into a dizzying summer romance with her brother’s best friend Bryan. It was a mad, crazy love full of kisses all through the night — but he broke her heart and she had to move on. Five years later, Kat is finishing her graduate
degree and building her business as a jewelry designer, when Bryan, head of his
own successful company, walks back into her life. Bryan has been assigned to
Kat as her new business mentor and the rules are clear. No hanky panky
permitted. Kat can handle that because she’s totally over him… right? Except,
he still makes her laugh, and he remembers all the things she likes. Not to
mention that he’s even more handsome now than he was then. Then there’s the
spark between them — the simply undeniable chemistry, and the tender ways he
shows he still cares for her. Can they resist each other the second time around
or will first love trump all? 
for 17+ due to sexual content.
Caught Up In Us is the first book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Caught Up In Love series, that includes Pretending He’s Mine, Playing With Her Heart and Trophy Husband. (While each book can be read as a standalone, you’ll likely

“The one you like best. That’s my favorite position. My favorite thing is making you
feel good.” 

Reeve Larkin needs a job. Sure, the actor is talented and gorgeous in that
dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But he lost out on a
part in a big movie, and now his day job hours have been slashed too.
What’s a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the
fake fiancé of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner,
who must appear temporarily attached if she’s to land a coveted gig casting a
red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her
fiance until she closes the deal. The trouble is – she’s sexy-as-hell and damn
near irresistible to him. And he’s not only a great guy, but also the best
dirty talker she’s ever met. It doesn’t take long for their pretend love affair
to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the
Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York
Public Library. 
A red-hot love affair. An intense connection. But as the lines between make-believe
and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting
fake it til they make it?
for 17+ due to sexual content.
