Daddy’s Best Friend
London Hale
Publication date: May 2nd 2017
Genres: Erotica, Romance

She’s temptation personified

Nathan had always been more than just my dad’s friend. I never thought he’d see me as an adult, especially not after avoiding me for so long. But one hug, one moment feeling every inch of him against me, shattered that illusion. Consequences no longer mattered—I was eighteen, and I was willing to risk everything for my shot with him.
He’s not going to resist anymore

I never should’ve seen Eve as more than my best friend’s daughter. As a cop, I knew it was wrong. It was my job to protect her from guys like me. Chasing her could cost me my career—not to mention the only family I’d ever known—but I couldn’t hold back another second. One taste, and I wanted her. To hell with the fallout.

EXCERPT:
“What are you doing?”

What was I doing? I’d come in to check. To see if what I thought I’d seen and felt outside had been a figment of my imagination. But it hadn’t, as evidenced by the bulge he was obviously sporting, and I needed to figure out what to do with that information.
So I answered honestly. “Pushing you.”
“Pushing me to do what, exactly?”
“Whatever it is you want.”
“Why?”
“Because you look like a man who needs to be pushed.”
His eyes devoured me again, burning me from the inside out. Leaving nothing but ash where I’d once stood. “Maybe I’m the one man you shouldn’t push.”

Perfect Ruin
On the floating city of Internment,you can be anything
you dream – a novelist or a singer, a florist or a factory worker… Your life
is yours to embrace or to squander. There’s only one rule: you don’t approach
THE EDGE. If you do, it’s already over.

Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the
floating city and her home, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother,
Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. There’s too much for
her on Internment: her parents, best friend Pen, and her betrothed, Basil. Her
life is ordinary and safe, even if she sometimes does wonder about the ground
and why it’s forbidden.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers
swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from
investigating, especially once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, Judas
is being blamed for the murder, but Morgan is convinced of his innocence.
Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what
she will find—or whom she will lose. 



Burning Kingdoms
Danger descends in the second book of The Internment
Chronicles, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden
trilogy.

After escaping Internment, Morgan and her fellow
fugitives land on the ground to finally learn about the world beneath their
floating island home.

The ground is a strange place where water falls
from the sky as snow, and people watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A
place where families can have as many children as they want, their dead are
buried in vast gardens of bodies, and Internment is the feature of an amusement
park.

It is also a land at war.

Everyone who fled Internment had their own
reasons to escape their corrupt haven, but now they’re caught under the
watchful eye of another king who wants to dominate his world. They may have
made it to the ground, but have they dragged Internment with them?





Broken Crowns
War rages everywhere and Morgan is caught in the middle
in the haunting conclusion of The Internment Chronicles, from the New York
Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy.

The city is falling out of the sky…

Morgan always thought it was just a saying. A
metaphor. The words of the dying. But as they look up at the floating island
that was their home, Pen and Morgan make a horrible discovery—Internment is
sinking.

And it’s all Morgan’s fault.

Corrupted from the inside by one terrible king
and assailed from the outside for precious resources by another, Internment
could be destroyed because Morgan couldn’t keep a secret. As two wars become
one, Morgan must find a way to bring her two worlds together to stop the kings
that wage them…

Or face the furthest fall yet.

“Listen, I gather you have a
problem working with a psychic. Believe me, I don’t like working with a jackass
any better.” 


Clarity
Clarity “Clare” Fern sees
things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried
secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to
her. It’s a gift.

And a curse.

When a teenage girl is found murdered, Clare’s ex-boyfriend wants her to help
solve the case—but Clare is still furious at the cheating jerk. Then Clare’s
brother—who has supernatural gifts of his own—becomes the prime suspect, and
Clare can no longer look away. Teaming up with Gabriel, the smoldering son of
the new detective, Clare must venture into the depths of fear, revenge, and
lust in order to track the killer. But will her sight fail her just when she
needs it most? 

Perception
When you can see things
others can’t, what do you do when someone’s watching you? 

Everybody knows about Clarity “Clare” Fern. She’s the psychic girl in
school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions
from the past. 

Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back,
observing. Her gift is not a game to her. 

But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and
gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from
Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare’s pulse racing? Or from Justin,
Clare’s hopeful ex-boyfriend who’d do anything to win her back? 

One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the
messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.

are absolutely sure you can win.”
 


Queen of Someday
ONE GIRL WILL BRING AN EMPIRE TO ITS KNEES…

Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie
will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the
throne of Russia—at any cost.

Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the
heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic,
and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but
sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and
herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new
surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens
to derail her plans.

Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may
mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to
marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every
corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in
love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to
sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.

In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme?
Queen of Tomorrow
Sophie—now Catherine, Grand
Duchess of Russia—had a tough first year at Imperial Court. Married at sixteen
to Grand Duke Peter, heir to the throne, and settled in their own palace,
things are finally looking up. As a new day dawns, she thinks only of securing
her future, and the future of their country, during one of the greatest
political upheavals of her time. Fighting desperately against forces trying to
depose the Empress Elizabeth and put the young Prince Ivan on her throne,
Sophie soon finds herself in the middle of a war brewing between her beloved
Prussia, and her new empire. But even as she navigates the fragile political
landscape, she quickly realizes that she has only begun to discover the tangled
web of deceit and infidelity woven over the lavish court of Oranienbaum Palace.
When a strange and delicate
alliance forms between the young couple, she glimpses a future of happiness,
only to see it lost in a moment at the hands of those who still seek to end her
life—and prevent her reign. Out of favor with the empress and running out of
options, Sophie will have to sacrifice her own innocence on the altar of Russia
if she is to save the nation, and herself. To survive, she will have to do the
unthinkable, betray those closest to her and become something greater and more
dangerous than she ever imagined she could be… a queen.
Queen of Always
LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

If her time at court has taught Catherine anything, it’s that there is no room
for weakness in Imperial Russia. With the Empress’ health failing and rumors of
a change in the line of succession, her place in the royal line is once more in
jeopardy. Tormented by her sadistic husband and his venomous mistress,
Catherine must once more walk the fine line between pleasure and
politics—between scandal and survival.

When her young son becomes the target of those rebelling against Peter’s reign,
Catherine will have to rise up to protect herself, her child, and her nation
from his unstable and potentially catastrophic rule. This means putting herself
at odds with the most dangerous man she’s ever known, trusting those who once
proved to be her enemies, and turning a nation against its sovereign. In the
ultimate battle for the crown, new alliances will be forged, loyalties will be
tested, and blood will be shed.

Don’t miss this breathtaking conclusion to the Stolen Empire series!

Queen of Tomorrow is a YA historical fiction based on the life of young
Catherine the Great. Fans of the hit TV show REIGN will devour this scandalous
glimpse into the life of one of the most dynamic women in history.

(The Player, #4)
Publication date: April 11th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Sports

Money, power, prestige…washout. Fox Coulter is…the Player.
There is no Plan B for Fox. All he has is hockey. All he’s ever had is hockey. That and his best friend, Sasha. So when she’s up rent creek with no roommate, it’s Fox to the rescue. But, with the opportunity of a lifetime on the line will his hotter-than-sin-best friend be more of a distraction than his lucky charm?
Sasha Tenison believes everyone should have rules. Rules like:
· Don’t ogle your best friend while he works out shirtless. It doesn’t matter how many muscles or tattoos he has.

· Don’t fantasize about what he tastes like, even if it’s been years since anyone’s kissed you.

· Don’t sleep with your best friend just because he’s hot, sexy, and the only one to ever believe in you.
Breaking even one of these rules will ruin everything. But one toe curling kiss from Fox and she’s ready to change her name to Rule Breaker.

EXCERPT:
This is just a kiss. Fox’s thoughts swirled in his head. Liar.

He gently brushed his lips to hers. There was an immediate spark.
What the hell?
Instead of pulling back, Fox chased that spark. Sasha parted her lips in a gasp, his tongue sliding into the warm depth of her mouth, asking hers to play. When she stroked her tongue against his, he moaned. He couldn’t help it. He deepened the kiss while his hand slid from her jaw into her hair.
Sasha reached up, her arms winding around his neck. Her fingers teased the hair at his nape.
Oh, hell, Fox thought. This was not supposed to—
Sasha arched her back into the kiss, pressing her breasts firmly against his body, and Fox lost total control as he continued to chase the spark as if it were pulling her further and further into him. He dove headfirst into the abyss.
The two of them had just entered completely uncharted territory. It started from something silly. Now it was all too serious. He leaned her backwards, both of them shifting and sliding until she lay along the length of the couch, Fox over her, his hips nestled between her thighs. His lips never leaving hers.
His dick rested against her burning heat as he pressed against her, begging her to let him in. His mind sought any remaining shred of control, but it was long gone. Sasha, his best friend, tasted fucking incredible. He couldn’t help but gently rock his hips against her, and what do you know, Sasha widened her legs to give him more room.
He held himself slightly above her, so as to not crush her with his full weight. All the while she rocked her hips up, seeking more of him, and he couldn’t help himself. In the matter of a minute they had gone from friendly kissing to desperately pawing at each other and he slipped his hand under her tank top.
She’s so damn soft. I just want a taste of her belly button, and up along the bottom of her ribcage.
Sasha arched up as if inviting him. God, yes. He wanted to slide his hand up farther still, cupping her fullness in his palm. He wanted to see how well they fit together. The thought had been clawing at him for so long. The alarm bells blared, but the devil on his shoulder just shouted over the din. Go on. Cup her. You know you want to. She wants it too. She wants your hands on her. Your thumbs on her nipple. But somehow rationality prevailed, and he just barely managed to keep from sliding his palm up over her full curves.
It took his lips longer to get the memo though. When they finally did, they staged a small mutiny before he dragged them away from hers as gently as he could. He kissed along her jaw-line and had to force himself to sit up and back away…all the way over to the far side of the couch. Whatever the hell had happened here was very dangerous. Destructive.
He couldn’t live without Sasha, he needed her like he needed to breathe. He knew what he was like, so he wasn’t going to ruin this by taking it to a point of no return. He took her hand and tugged her into a sitting position.
“Now that’s how that dipshit should have been kissing you.” he said before settling back against the couch like she hadn’t just rocked his whole world upside down.
