An Enemies to Lovers Holiday Tale

Author: Cora Brent
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Blurb
Maybe there’s one of us in every family.  
The guy who scorns all the rules.  
The guy who shuns expectations.  
The guy most commonly known as the ultimate villain in a
cultish self help movement.
On the other hand, perhaps we’re not as common as I
thought.  
But so what if I’m never anyone’s hero? 
At least I’m a good brother. That is the one thing I manage
to get right.  So when my big sister is abandoned by her prick of a
husband, leaving her and her four kids alone a week before Christmas, I don’t
hesitate to head home.  
To my surprise, I’m not the only one who shows
up.  
Katrina has always been my sister’s best
friend.  She’s headstrong and hot. She’s neurotic and
sexy.  She belts out old power ballads with horrible, tuneless
abandon and her hair always smells like vanilla cookie batter. 
We have a long history of being at odds and she’s never
appreciated my natural talent for getting under her skin.  
And then there was the time when we accidentally got naked
together…
There might have been some post-wedding horniness
involved.  
Combined with antique furniture abuse.  
Along with a creative application of lemon
buttercream. 
It’s kind of a forbidden topic.  
Now, nearly a decade later, it’s possible I’m still using
that memory to get off once or twice or twelve times a
month.     
Katrina never knew that back in the day she was the one girl
who really got to me.  
In the spirit of the holidays I’ve decided it’s time to
settle the score.   
She already thinks I’m not one of the good guys.  
She also realizes I’ve got something she wants for
Christmas.  
All she has to do is swallow her high maintenance pride and
ask nicely.  
I can guarantee she’ll get more than she ever bargained
for…  
  
*SYLER MCKNIGHT is a complete stand alone with:
·       Small town
quirkiness
·       Enemies to Lovers
(with majorly hot hate sex)
·       A sarcastic
flannel-shirt-wearing anti-hero

Excerpt
“So you want to live in my hometown. Your family obviously has money.” I
waved my hand around the cabin as proof. “You like kissing me. Explain to me
again why we can’t get to know each other.”
“Because it can lead to more. And that would be a violation of trust.
Your dad trusted me with you.”
“Technically, it was Jennifer.”
“It’s all the same.”
Always the marine. I pulled my hands away from his. I had to stop doing
that with him. Even if he liked me, he still had a job to do. “Fine. So as soon
as we land, we can go get Ben from his hiding place, get him to make me a
proper heiress, and live happily ever after with our shiny new jobs.”
That got a chuckle out of him. “That’s more or less the gist of it.
Though you skipped several steps.”
I rose and made my way to the galley to pour myself a wine. When I
stepped back to pull out a cart, I bumped into Matt. The adrenaline shock was
immediate, followed by an electric current when his lips touched my shoulder.
“It pains me when you make that face.”
“What face?” I turned around, keeping my hands on his so he wouldn’t let
go.
“It’s not that I don’t want you.”
I got that we were on a mission here. But Matt felt like home, and I’d
been away from family for too long. He worried about me. He cared whether or
not I lived, which was something I knew for a fact was not a concern my parents
had about me. Mom certainly never sent someone to ask me to call her and go see
her. Dad didn’t even think to pretend to send me to Paris because Mom wanted to
see me. He wanted me gone. Period.
I slipped my fingers into Matt’s dark hair and made a fist. His breath
puffed out against my face, cool from the ice water he’d been drinking. I
sighed and pressed my lips to him. If he wanted me to stay away, he would be on
the other side of the plane. As it happened before, kissing him was like waking
a sleeping titan. He embraced me, all hard muscle, hot skin, and soft lips. I
ran my nails against the grain of his stubble. When he parted his lips,
yielding to me, I touched the tip of my tongue to his bottom lip, then went
deeper. He tasted like mint.
“You’re so smooth,” he said when I pulled back to catch my breath. He ran
a hand up my arm and down my neck. “So beautiful.”
I kissed him again. I didn’t need words. I needed him. Unlike before, he
didn’t yield to me. Instead, he cupped my face and let his smooth tongue do the
exploring. Jesus, this guy was a thousand turn-ons, but what did it for me was
the desperation in his breathing, ragged and for once, out of control. If he
hadn’t been holding me, I would have melted off the plane.

New Release: Sleeper by Kayley Loring is Available Now!














SHANE MILLER SLEEP DIARY:
Went to bed at: Late.
How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.
Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!
My stress level is off the charts.
I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.
My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months,
so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life—
impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad.
My son won’t stop asking questions.​
My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.
Our regular nanny quit.
The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister.
If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.
Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.
She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.
I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.
Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.
Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.
If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister,
he would smother me with a pillow.
The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie
that I made being a huge hit.
But it’s a chance I’m going to take.

























Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Coming home
for the holidays after eight long years to say goodbye, I found myself saying
hello.
Melissa—or
Missy as I remembered her—had had a crush on me. But being a typical
eighteen-year-old, I didn’t pay much attention to the blushing twelve-year-old.
I walked
away without so much as a backwards glance. But now? Now I can’t tear my eyes
away.
Gone was
the girl with braces and pigtails…in her place was a woman who took my breath
away.
I just had
to prove to her I wasn’t the same guy I was back then. I prayed for a Christmas
miracle, but I never expected this.
Her.
Us.

Author Bio
I’m a feisty redheaded Canadian/American who fell in love
with romance novels when my friend Phil bought me a Kindle that hasn’t left my
side since.
My favorite books to read are anything taboo and super sick
and twisted. I’m not sure I will ever write anything dark, but I would love to
give it a shot one day.
I live in South Florida with my high school sweetheart and
three kids.
I grew up in Burlington, ON, Canada but made the move to
South Florida in 2013 and definitely don’t miss the snow.
I’m not sure where this writing journey will take me but
either way, I know it will be a fun new adventure, and I’m super excited about
it.
