Excerpt/Teaser:
 
After checking into the hotel, I decided to go all out for this weekend. My friends will be in tomorrow for the wedding. Tonight, I have the penthouse suite all to myself. Well, not myself. I walk toward Lennox, he was waiting in the bar area. That rugged smirk appears across his face. I approach him, “I’m on the very top floor. 1305. Let’s go.”
I grab his hand and lead him to the elevator. When we get into the elevator, I pounce on him causing him to startle back. Our lips interlock. Our tongues start dancing. My hand reaches down to his belt buckle, I start to fiddle with it. He pulls away. My teeth clench down on his bottom lip. “Fuck, woman. Anxious much?” he groans, as I release his lip. 
I purr, “You’re all my tonight. So be ready?”
“Well, okay then,” he smirks. 
The elevator door opens up and we walk down the long, dim-light hallaway. It was like a scene from a music video. While holding his hand, I lead him down the orangish-red carpet to my room at the end. It’s been too damn long since I have been with a man. Jonathon was my last. After the divorce, my focus with my children and career. Tonight is going to be different. My focus is getting fucked while fucking his brain out. All this built up tension is about to unleash on this poor pup. Jonathon might have been the last man I fucked but that doesn’t mean I’m not shy when exploring more. I’m going to make Lennox my bitch tonight. I love that he is on board. Men, they truly think with their second head. 
We make it to the door. While I fiddle with my phone to get the room barcode to open the door, he wraps his strong arm around me and squeezes me, bringing me close to his body. His breath hits my neck causing my body to shiver. Then hello lips, he nibbles my neck. Goodness, I need the code asap. Finally, the barcode appears in my wallet and I open the door. Both of us dragging our luggage, we stumble into the suite. He releases me from his hold. I turn around, pushing my luggage to the floor. He stands just a few feet from the doorway. I demand, “Close the door. But first put up the sign that says ‘Do Not Disturb’.”

About Shirley
 
What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual… I once had a raccoon as a pet.

Title: Raine: Gods of the Fifth Floor 2

Author: MV Ellis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Cover Design: Sarah Paige Opium House Creatives.

They think they’ve lost everything. But then they find each other. 
 
RAINE
I’m the clichéd “poor little rich boy”
I have everything I want, but nothing I need
I get high to escape the lows of my past
Yet there’s no escaping the monster in the mirror
I’ve always been about taking, until I took too much 
They paid the price, and it’s a debt I can never repay 
So I’m killing myself slowly 
Because I can’t bring myself to end it fast
NOA
I know what it is to have loved and lost
Now I’m slowly picking up the pieces of my life
I should put my needs first, but that’s not me
If someone’s broken I need to fix them
Even if I get hurt along the way
Nobody should feel like they want to die 
My love alone wasn’t enough before 
So this time I’m determined to be a reason to live

 

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
 
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a ‘WAG’, and her experiences inspire her writing.
 
Ellis’ love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.
 
An avid reader, Ellis always knew that she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017. She has continued to expand the Heartless Few series beyond Catching London, with releases planned through to 2020. In addition, she has launched a new four-part
 
series, Rough Ink series, set in the sexy world of a New York tattoo studio. Expect the same sexy badass guys, angst galore, witty banter, scorching bedroom scenes, and kickass sassy women; but with a whole new world, and cast of characters to get to know and love. Zed, the first book in the series launched in June 2019.

Excerpt
His eyes linger on our hands before roaming across my sleep shirt,
catching on my lips, and stilling on my gaze. “You make me want things,
Marguerite,” he whispers like regret and yearning all wrapped up in an
unfamiliar package.
The ever present want and fear when I think of a future that can never
be, war in my stomach. “Don’t. What I have could never be enough.”
“Don’t sell yourself short, Pixie.” He squeezes my hand before releasing
it and turning away. “You have more than enough of what I need.”
I linger on his impressive form as he pulls on his jeans. But when he
turns to look at me again, I turn away, disappearing behind the bathroom door
before he can witness the fall of my shoulders, and hope, slide from my face.
Regret follows me as I jump in the shower and do exactly what he asked me
not to.
I wash all evidence of him off my body.
Where he lingers, water can’t penetrate.
It can’t wipe him from my mind.
It can’t cleanse him from my soul.
And it can’t save my riotous heart from falling.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Have you ever wondered how soulmates fall in love after they meet?One touch was all it took to pierce through the hatred, the revenge, the payback that kept Reaper’s sanity in check. Unable to bear to be touched, Ginny breezed through his safeguards, stirring the flames of desire and trying to make him believe love was possible again, while his tortured soul just wanted to find the peace he had promised himself once all his enemies were there to keep him company in hell.

One look was all it took for Ginny to recognize her soulmate. Now she was determined to show him that love, mercy, and forgiveness would bring the light back into his life. Her warrior was no longer fighting alone to battle his nightmares, and this Kentucky woman wasn’t afraid of stealing his heart and making it hers.

One love that would have to be strong enough to overcome Reaper’s biggest enemy—himself. Having lost faith in love, The Last Riders, and himself, it was only when Ginny committed a desperate selfless act of love that Reaper realized that, to save her, he was going to have to put his life on the line again. This time if he lost, not only would he lose Ginny, but the Last Riders forever.

How was he supposed to know his wrath could cost him everything?

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.
 
​Taking after my mother, I’ve always loved to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.
 
For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children, my daughter is also an author, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.
 
All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Until he didn’t.

Excerpt
I meandered through
the crowd, saying hello to several people I knew, until I came to an abrupt
halt. Across the room, standing alone against a window, was the woman who
rarely left my mind. Eliza was absolutely stunning. The royal blue dress hugged
her every curve. The neckline was modest and it nearly reached her ankles, but
the color was perfect on her and only made her beautiful eyes pop with color. I
could count on one hand the number of times I’d ever seen her hair down.
Tonight, it spilled over her shoulders in soft waves. 
As though sensing my
gaze, her eyes locked on mine and my heart stuttered inside my chest at the
wide smile she sent my way. My feet led me over to her. 
“Good evening. You
look…wow.” My eyes continued to take her in. 
A bright pink dashed
across Eliza’s cheeks. “Aren’t you the flatterer.” She nervously smoothed her
dress down her stomach. “Are you sure I look okay? Ava and I went panic
shopping today, because I didn’t have anything suitable in my closet. I didn’t
want to be underdressed, but I also didn’t want to go too extravagant.” 
Catching her fingers
in my hand, I brushed my lips across her knuckles staring into her eyes.
“You’re absolutely perfect.”

#NewRelease ~ “Because of Dylan” Series: Riggins U, Book 3 by Author Erica Alexander, Genre: Contemporary Romance is Available Now! ~ @author_erica @EJBookPromos

Title: Because of Dylan
Series: Riggins U, Book 3
Author: Erica Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 30, 2020
Whoever said the truth will set you free was lying. The truth won’t set me free. The truth will destroy me.
Our relationship is forbidden. 
I should stay away.
He’s a teacher.
I’m a student.
He lives by a code of ethics and truth.
I hide behind lies and misdirection. I have good reason to.
 
My childhood was a living nightmare. 
It damaged me, hurt me, destroyed me.
No one knows what I’ve been through.
And I won’t let anyone know.
 
Especially not him.
 
Cold. Calculating. Judgmental. Professor Dylan Beckett.
But there’s something about the way he looks at me…
The way I feel when his eyes are on mine…
And I wonder what will happen if I open my heart. 
Is a happy ever after ending even possible for someone as broken as me? Or will the truth destroy everything I worked so hard for?
Some lessons can’t be learned in the classroom… 
*****
 
“Because of Dylan is a standalone, slow burn, forbidden, angsty romance featuring a heroine who is stronger than she realizes, and the cocky-on-the-outside, sweet-on-the-inside hero of her dreams. A satisfying HEA is guaranteed.”

 

“This book is not an easy, straight forward read. It is deep, full of angst and turmoil, pain and heartbreak, uncertainty and self-doubt. It will break you down, bind you up in every emotion known to man and pull you along on a tsunami of feeling, right before it builds you up again, piece by piece, filling you with hope, romance, familial love and ultimately self-love.” – Emerald Book Reviews

 

 

 

 

“I love forbidden romance novels, specially student/teacher. So, that was what grabbed my attention first on this one. But as I started reading I knew it was more than a forbidden romance. It was a lesson on how we need to let go of the past to welcome the future.” – Goodreads Review

 

Erica Alexander has been a storyteller her entire life. If she’s not writing stories, she’s daydreaming them. Which has gotten her in trouble once or twice. She has an inclination to use sarcasm and she can make anything that comes out of her mouth, sound dirty. It’s a gift.
When Erica is not writing, reading or daydreaming new stories, she enjoys baking, looking up pictures of hot guys on Pinterest (for research of course) and commiserating with friends over their mutual hatred of laundry.
Erica’s life goals are: to make sure her family is happy and healthy, bring to life all the stories in her head, visit Australia and jump off a plane. Preferably with a parachute.
Erica has degrees in Communications and Computer Science and she loves history, all things Native American, and anything that’s off the beaten path and weird.
