Welcome to Creekwood…
Angela
Head down, eyes peeled for any opportunity to get off the
dead-end course my mother carelessly paved for me years ago.
My plan takes a sharp turn landing me directly across the
hall from Creekwood’s resident bad boys. The three streetbike riding misfits
are as stubborn as they are sexy. And they. Are. Sexy. Especially the one with
the mocha swirl eyes watching my every move.
But even the six-foot hallway separating us can’t keep the
overbearing trio from constantly getting in my way.
When my past threatens to catch up with me, I quickly learn
not every detour promises an easier route, no matter how tempting my new
neighbors might make it look.  
Coty
Head up, eyes locked on anything threatening to throw me off
the carefully constructed path I have mapped out.
I live my life the same way I ride my bike, never once
regretting the roads I’ve chosen.
Lately though, after years of the same scenery, everything’s
starting to blur together. It’s only when our elusive neighbor girl comes out
of nowhere that I realize what’s been missing.
And now that I have, I don’t think I can let her pass by so
quickly. At least not without proving the lengths I’ll go for her first.

I hated to trick her…
But I knew she would never go for the real me.
She was beautiful, smart and funny—everything I
could want. 
And I was… well. Me. 
Tattooed, foul mouthed, bad boy. 
I told one little white lie hoping to meet someone
different. And I did. 
Danniella Abbot.
She wasn’t who I was expecting, and I guess she
could say the same, because Danni made it very clear she wasn’t interested in
me or my reasons for lying. 
The fact that she was my best friend’s little
sister only complicated an already impossible situation. 
I didn’t intend on tricking her. I just wanted her
to give me a chance, to discover who I am underneath the ink.
She can fight me all she likes because we both know
that I’m exactly her type. She just doesn’t know it yet. 
What happens when you wake up married to the woman
you tricked into a date?
You kiss the bride and prove her wrong.

“Do Not Disturb” by Author Kristine Dugger, Genre: Contemporary Romance, is Available Now! ~ @KrisFoley55 @EJBookPromos #NewRelease


Title: Do Not Disturb
Author: Kristine Dugger
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 14, 2020
Cover Designer: Dani Julian
Cover Model: Shane MacKinnon
Photographer: Wander Aguiar Photography
One look. One drink. A friendly conversation between two strangers.
A divorced mother of two. A younger man married to his job.
A chance meeting at the airport.
What are the odds of them sharing a plane together?
Quite slim.
Fate had another plan for them.
All it took was one more look and their lives were changed without them knowing about it.
A weekend of fun turns into something more than just…
Leave a sign on the door, DO NOT DISTURB.


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’.”

Dalton
 
The thing about love…
 
It’s kind & beautiful, soft & hard, forgiving & emotional, but love can also be blind. Love can twist and turn you into someone unrecognizable.
 
That’s the way it was for Josie and me. She became my everything. I fell heart over mind, allowing her to take the only thing that I could call my own. The life I envisioned for us was blurred by secrets, hard to overcome. She made me question whether what we had was based on truth or a lie.
 
 
Joselyn
 
Dalton was an obstacle in the way of what I’d always shied away from, and the only way to reach my end was through him. So, I made a choice to get close to him, even when I shouldn’t have. We were never meant to be what we became. I didn’t intend for something forced to turn into something real. In the end, Dalton was so much more than just a means to an end. He held the key to everything, including my heart. It was his to have, to hold, to break, and to mend.
 
That’s the thing about love…
 
It can’t be forced. It just happens, and once it’s in motion, it’s impossible to stop.

Dark waters of my past are rising.

A steamy new standalone romance full of tender impulse and aching hunger. Author SC Daiko brings readers another emotion-packed novel filled with sexiness, danger, and love. 

“I was truly blown away,” Debra P, Amazon Reviewer

“An epically good read,” Aunt G. Top 500 Amazon Vine Voice Reviewer

“…unique and emotional,” MissPetiteBrunette, Amazon Reviewer

“…an awesome book,” Christine Campbell, Amazon Reviewer

I trod water in the deep end of the pool, enjoying the sight of Hayley as she made her way across the decking, her tits almost bouncing out of the top of her tankini. 
I’d give anything to cup them and suck them and fucking bite them.
Whoa, mate. Not gonna happen. She’s not the kinda girl who’d be up for a one-night stand and you’re not the kinda bloke who’d offer more than that…
My dick had stiffened and I dove down into the depths, where I quickly adjusted myself. A ripple in the water, and I opened my eyes. A pint-sized body was swimming toward me, but the chlorine had started stinging, so I shot upward to resurface and shake the droplets from my long hair. Usually tied back except when I was on stage, it hung annoyingly heavy and wet down the sides of my face.
Yankee Girl popped up like a cork from a bottle. She swam to the shallow end and I joined her. “How are you feeling?” she asked.
“Like I’ve been run over by a steamroller, to be honest. And the fucking meds have turned me into a zombie.” 
I made a face at her like I was one of the walking dead, and she laughed. “You gotta let things take their course. The nurse explained that we need to reduce the pills slowly until you can manage without.” 
“Thought I was gonna die on the plane home.” I grimaced. “I’ve never experienced pain like that. I hope I never have to again.”
She shot me a concerned look. “You’re doing great. Let’s just take this one day at a time.”
“Can’t wait to get back to normal,” I huffed.
Except, what would my new normal be? Sober and clean would be a whole new ball game and I didn’t know if I could hack it.
“Axel and Phoenix are looking forward to hanging out with you, now you’re so much better.” Hayley’s mouth curved into a warm smile.
I stuck out my bottom lip. “Yeah. Whatever.”
Having mates ’round without enjoying booze was about as appealing as an audience with the Pope. 
Golden sparks flashed in Yankee Girl’s amber irises. “They care about you.”
“I know,” I said, but still I wallowed in self-pity. “It will be like partying during prohibition.”
“You don’t need alcohol to have a good time,” she responded. 
“Wine, women and song, the adage goes,” I shrugged. “At least I can still fuck and make music.” 
Her heart-shaped face flushed. “Don’t you have any hobbies or play any sports?”

 

“I’m a musician. Playing music and rehearsing is my life. I exercise in the gym. Never had time for anything else.” I paused, shot her a look. “How about you?”
