Feeling as though everything is finally working for him when he signs a deal that could set his ranch up for life, Joshua Kell instead finds himself totally unprepared for the changes headed his way. He celebrates his good fortune and even thinks he has found the woman of his dreams, however, what he finds is—himself alone and devastated that she left. Nursing a broken heart, he packs his bags and heads for home.

Brianna Evans is happy for her sister, but would rather be anywhere else than celebrating the upcoming wedding with a night out on the town. Instead, it turns out to be a night she can't remember, that is until she receives news, which has her memory working overtime.
However, after spending the last two years struggling to take back control of her life after a horrific trauma, can she trust again to find her happily ever? She gets the chance when a ghost from her past surfaces, leaving her no recourse but to either trust in her cowboy to keep her safe, or live a life of regret.

  "I thought the writer captured each moment perfectly, the descriptions and dialogue within the story made me feel part of it. I thought the characters were great, how can you not want a sexy cowboy.....Bri's character is hard not to love, she's shy, easily blushes but she is a strong , smart women that perseveres. Josh is a sexy cowboy that is nothing but a gentleman and extremely protective of what's his.....I really enjoyed this story and would highly recommend ."--Nanee
"I will say this was a perfect set-up for an ongoing series with all these wonderful characters.

A love so true

A Broken Forever
A Tale of Neveah 1
by Angie Merriam
a Romantic Fantasy
from Beau Coup Publishing


Shep and Lilly are best friends and neighbors. They grew up outside of city limits amongst towering Pine Trees and flowing rivers. With a shared birthday, childhood, and innocence, it’s fate when Shep and Lilly fall in love. They're soul mates. On their 18th birthday Shep proposes to a tearful Lilly who eagerly accepts. The day began with love and excitement but ended with fear and confusion when Lilly's mother goes missing. With only a cryptic note and determination to find her mother, Lilly must discover a courage and strength she's not sure she has. 

When Shep and Lilly are brought to Neveah they are stunned by its magic and magnificence. They are in a race to save their mothers while discovering secrets that threaten to tear them apart. Both must accept a fate they didn't know belonged to them while preparing to stop one man that is a danger, not only to them but to all of Neveah. The innocent love story of Shep and Lilly weaves through the tragic love of Jax and Annika. One is pure while the other is dark. One can stop the evil spreading while the other can destroy a world. 

The Levannah family rules Neveah with a firm but loving hand. Their peaceful home is a place where beauty abounds and innocence rivals Earth. It’s a world where creatures, both magnificent and terrifying, live in harmony amongst each other. When Lady Levannah has her first born, Annika, it is decided that she will marry the son of her best friend Selene Androni, making them family. They watch with pride as Jax and Annika grow up together, an obvious love forming between them. 
Jax and Annika were the best of friends. They shared a childhood but little else. Jax was a rambunctious and temperamental boy while Annika was adventurous and loving. He couldn't wait to marry her; she couldn't wait to marry another. When Annika refuses to marry Jax, as he'd been promised, it unleashes an evil Neveah has never seen.

“When did you find this place, Shep? It’s great!”
“You like it? My dad and I stumbled upon it on a hunting trip last winter. I have been waiting to show it to you ever since.”

“Why didn’t you tell me about it?”

“I wanted to show you. Here, come on! You haven’t seen the best part, come on.” Shep grabbed my hand tugging me to the rocks. Still holding my hand, he started climbing the smallest rock pulling me up with him. Once we reached the top, the picture that awaited us took my breath away. Down below us, about twenty feet, flowed the Klamath River. To the right of us, stairs made of rock and wild grass led to a small sandy flat area surrounded by wild flowers and pine trees. The river flowed lazily past the sandy beach. Tiny waves broke at the edge where the sand turned to pebbles and pebbles turned to rock.

“It’s beautiful here, Shep, so secluded, so private.”

“I thought you would like it. You should see the look on your face Lill, priceless. Seriously, you can close your mouth now,” Shep laughed, teasing me as always.

“Shut up, don’t ruin the moment,” I hissed back slapping him hard on the arm.

“Oh, you hit like a girl, Strawberry Shortcake! You really need to let me teach you how to hit.” With that, I balled my fist and socked him in the gut. He doubled over laughing. “That’s more like it,” he replied through fits of laughter.

“Ha!” Was my only reply. I was too occupied with the scenery. As always, my mind was already daydreaming about this little bit of heaven. This place would make a fantastic backdrop for a painting. I made a mental note to come back with a sketch pad and draw the scenery.

“Hey, let’s walk down to the grassy flat area, Chocolate Muffin.” I grinned at him, knowing full well he hated when I called him that.

“I have a better idea, let’s jump.” He suggested, lips curled back in that glorious smile.

“What? Are you crazy? Are you trying to get us killed?” I was horrified, but he looked completely serious and a little hurt at my reaction.

“No, I’m not crazy. I already jumped. I swam all around down below to make sure there were no rocks and the current is calm right now. The water is warm too.” He was a bit smug as he spoke to me, clearly offended I thought he would endanger me in any way.

“Really, Shep, you want me to jump? Why?” I asked puzzled but knew before I even asked that I would jump with him. I always followed Shep.

“It’s great, Lill, a huge rush! We jump together. I promise if you hate it the first time, I will not make you jump again, just try once. Please, for me?” His big, brown eyes begging me. How could I say no to those eyes? With a shrug and a sigh, I took off the dress covering my bathing suit, looked at Shep and asked, “Are we gonna do this or what?” He broke into a smile showing all his perfect teeth and hugged me tightly in thanks. He quickly stripped to his swim trunks and took my hand. “Nothing to it, Lill, just hold my hand and jump.”

There we were; Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Muffin, side by side, in complete contrast of each other, yet somehow connected, soulmates.

“On the count of three. Ready?” Shep asked.


“One, two, three!” Shep announced and on three, we were hurtling toward the water. I felt

weightless. For those few seconds, I felt like I could fly. It was so liberating. Our hands broke apart just before we broke the water’s surface. I shot through the water like a bullet sinking lower and lower until I gathered my bearings and started to kick up to the surface. Shep was the first thing I saw once my head reached the surface, grinning wide at me. He began swimming to shore glancing back every now and then to make sure I was behind him. Once we reached the shoreline, he pulled me out of the water into his arms. I was shivering from excitement. “Well? Did you love it?” I waited, looked up at him, and smiled before confirming that of course I loved it, he knew me too well. We both laughed. We jumped three more times before we collapsed on the beach, totally exhausted and happy. Time could have gone on like this forever, but not everything goes according to my opinion.

He's skilled at building sexual tension


Beaux RĂªve Coven, Book 1
by Delilah Devlin
an Erotic Paranormal Romance
from Samhain Publishing

When testing an enemy for weaknesses, prepare for things to get hard.

Bryn Cavanaugh and her coven like that the community they live in is isolated thanks to a storm that destroyed the bridge between them and the outside world. Now the state wants the bridge rebuilt. When the construction crew checks into the inn, Bryn begins to suspect something about the crew’s boss isn’t quite…human.

Bridges are Ethan Thorne’s thing—after all, he’s a troll—so building a simple span over a remote canal in backwater Louisiana shouldn’t be this much of a problem. When he follows the pretty little innkeeper to a midnight rendezvous, he discovers why his crew keeps running in to trouble. Bryn and her coven are casting spells in the moonlight.

As a troll, Ethan feels the sting of his low place in demon hierarchy. But finding an unprotected coven of witches in the middle of the bayou could lead to all sorts of adventure. And it’s better to keep your enemies close…

Warning: Contains a handsome troll (Hey, it can happen!) who’s skilled at building sexual tension with his hands—and several other body parts, as well—and a witch who’s determined to protect her home, but forgets to shield her heart.




“Let me do this my way.”

His way meant she would be on hands and knees. His callused palms urged her downward, arranging her knees, sinking the center of her back to tilt her bottom upward.

She didn’t mind that he treated her like a doll, that he took charge, his body blanketing her as he set the width of her hands just so. He was warm and hard and surrounding her. His cock glided on the backs of her thighs, nudged her buttocks and slid along her wet folds.

And his cock was huge. A blunt instrument. Rock solid as the rest of him.

When he was satisfied, he moved away. Her head bowed toward the floor. She hoped he’d take her. Sink his many inches inside her. However, the first flick of his tongue against her folds sent an electrical charge through her.

She must have been wound too tight. Nearly on the verge of orgasm for it to affect her so. She steeled herself against the pleasure, not wanting to disappoint him by leaving him in the dust. He teased her with more flicks to her outer folds. Then he suckled there, drawing her inside his mouth for gentle nibbles. His whiskers raked her sex and inner thighs.

Not that she minded the abrasion. He could scour her skin off so long as he found her center.  Which he did, dipping his tongue inside her and swirling. A deep groan vibrated against her sex.
When he pulled away again, she whimpered. She didn’t need foreplay, she needed the main event. But the nips he gave her fleshy ass made her jerk, escalating her sensitivity to his every touch.

Fingers parted her then swirled around her entrance. They eased her open, stretched her, one finger added at a time until she was beyond full. He spent so much time preparing her for his girth, she began to wonder if she’d underestimated just as how large he was.

The moment he prodded her with the blunt knob of his cock, she knew. He spread her folds and pressed against her, apparently gripping himself to circle her entrance and ease himself inside with precision and insistent pressure.

She’d dreamed about the way it would feel. Now pleasure was edged with worry that he wouldn’t fit. But she was wet, and more liquid seeped from inside her to coat his heavy cock. At last, he breached her entrance.

She sagged, her arms already shaking. Her body was too tight, too excited for her to slow her heart or reactions. “Ethan,” she whimpered.

The pressure relented. He held still. “Am I hurting you?” His voice sounded as though he were grinding rocks between his teeth.

“Yes,” she hissed, but she didn’t want him to stop. She wanted the pressure and the pain. “More, please.”

His laugh was choked. He gripped the notches of her hips to hold her immobile and worked himself inside in shallow, pulsing waves, in and out, deeper and deeper—until Goddess, he was touching her womb.

She felt a pinch deep inside her. A quiver of core-deep delight. This could be the moment. If only he didn’t realize he’d taken her unprotected and pulled free at the last.

Bryn sank her chest against the cushions and reached far beneath her, past his cock, to his balls. She gripped them, massaging them, sending out a flash of witch’s heat.

“Fuck, Bryn. Don’t…” He dug his fingers hard into her fleshy hips, pulled back and then slammed forward.

She released his balls, certain he wouldn’t stop until she’d achieved her goal. She’d unleashed his passion.

His hips moved faster, his cock cramming deeply, whipping back and shoving forward again. The sheer fullness made her want to shout. Her back arched and she pushed backward, trying to break his hold, but he began to move her, bringing her back as he thrust, pushing her away as he withdrew. He hammered her. Jostled her. Roughly, so deliciously, she was on the verge of exploding.

And then he began to move his hands on her skin. He reached up one hand to grab her hair and force her back to arch more, gliding another on her skin, raising gooseflesh. Her hair was lifting and prickling on the back of her neck. Static charged the air, and her eyes widened. She knew at last why he’d been so attractive, why she’d been inexorably drawn to him. Why she’d craved this union.
