He’s the king of his domain. She’s the queen of nap time. Can they learn to rule with their hearts?
Esmeralda Pickett reigns over the subjects in her kindergarten class. She’s probably the last adult who still believes in fairy tales because all the stories do for her young charges is put the kids to sleep. Esme dreams of being swept off her feet by a charming prince, so when she’s saved from the dangers of texting while walking by a real live king, she’s certain her storybook romance is set to begin. Though sparks fly between the king and the kindergarten teacher, the pages get stuck when Esme learns that the monarch can only marry a woman of royal blood. And while she’s a true blue New Yorker, her blood is as red as it comes.
King Leonidas’s first wife was selected for him at birth. Now a widower, Leo has the right to choose his second wife, but it won’t be the love match he’s secretly dreamed of making. The small country of Cordoba is facing an economic crisis, and marrying a rich duchess would secure his people’s future. But can his heart afford another loveless marriage?
As Esme and Leo get to know one another, it’s clear there’s a thing between them. But another thing— her lack of royal blood—is keeping them apart. As the clock ticks closer to midnight, will Esme get her storybook ending? Or will this fairytale turn grim?
Find out if love will reign in this light-hearted, sweet romance of royal engagements. The King and the Kindergarten Teacher is the first in a series of royal romances that are beyond the common tale!

And by the way, the E elongates the A. So it’s pronounced Shan-aaaaaaaa. Perfect for a hero to call out across the moors, or up to a balcony, or to blare outside her window on a boombox. If you hear him calling her name, please send him her way!

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Jade West 

A filthy proposition.
Too much money to say no. 
One dirty night in a stranger’s bed.

While my husband watches.

It should’ve been a dream. A new life on the coast, running a beautiful country hotel with my husband. 
It should have been everything I’d ever wanted. Worth every scrap of investment. 
A hotel business we’d sunken every single penny we owned into, only to find out there was a big chain rival opening just a stone’s throw away. 

Slowly, day by day, the dream became a nightmare. Bills. So many bills. Sleepless nights, tossing and turning. No way out in sight.

Until there was him. 
The man at the bar. 
The man with a proposition we should never have considered in a thousand years…

Me. Him. One long night where I’m subject to his every fantasy.
While my husband watches.

A full length contemporary romance novel.




Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. She lives in the Powys countryside with a couple of hounds. She has a zebra print living room, and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

“What? Do I
look that bad?” he asks.
“No, you
look fine. Fine. Yes. Nope, you’re good. Good, good…I was just…” I scramble for
some reasonable excuse to be staring at him. “I—It’s just that I couldn’t help
but notice your tattoo.”
Yes! Brilliant save, Jameson!
“Oh, you
know, I forget it’s even there sometimes,” he says, bringing his smooth, broad
chest closer to me so I can get a better look at him. It. At it. The tattoo…
pointing to the image on his right pectoral muscle, a vibrant orange skull
intricately decorated. It has a bright array of red and pink flowers and small
jewels adorning it.
“They call
this a sugar skull.”
Before I
can help myself, I reach out to touch the colorful picture that takes up a
large section of that side of his chest. I pull away before my fingers make
okay,” he assures me, taking my hand and pulling it to his chest. “You can
touch it.”
I keep my
hand there for a beat longer than I should before reluctantly extricating
myself. “Well, I…uh…I think it’s beautiful.” I glance down at my watch.
“Oh! I’ve got to get the chicken in the oven.”
I start to
turn toward the other naked flesh in the room.
“Of course!
Sorry, yes, I, uh, I think I saw a sex pack—sorry, six pack. There’s a six
pack of toothbrushes in the hall closet.”
Holy hell!
What was that? I try to appear
composed, even as I feel the two hot, red spots that are forming on my cheeks.
He chivalrously turns to leave before I’m in full-on beet mode, but not before
I catch a little color on his face, too.

Title: Quint Essential ( The Kingsbrier Quintuplets 1-3 )
Author: Jody Kaye 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Welcome to the family…

This collection includes the first three complete novels in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets contemporary romance series — Eric, Brier, and Daveigh— as well as previews of the full first chapters of Miss Cavanaugh, Cavanaugh, and Adam.

Eric is the only quint who has life figured out. College. Work his way up the ladder in the family construction business. Marry Ginny, the girl with the heart of gold.

But for as much as Ginny’s told Eric she loves him, she hasn’t confided a secret that will throw a wrench in Eric’s plans.

When Ginny admits the lengths she’s gone to keep Eric, will her deceit tear them apart?

Brier’s defiant streak kept that hurt at bay. She left Kingsbrier unwilling to let the man she loved stop her from pursuing her dreams. Now, despite a fulfilling career, Brier knows something is missing from her life. When circumstances bring her back home, Brier confronts the one person she’s avoided for years.

Drew Newhouse has never backed down from a challenge. He’s let his childhood sweetheart push him away because he knows they have always been meant to be. This time, he’s playing for keeps.

With the help of the other quints, will Drew win Brier’s trust? Can Brier put her heart on the line and give Drew the chance they both deserve?

Cris Sanchez prefers to admire Daveigh Cavanaugh from afar. He’s a widower with a young son. She’s the boss’s daughter. The eight years that separate their age—and time that Daveigh has been away for college and vet school—should have sealed their fate.

Instead, Cris’s dedication to the family business and Daveigh’s love of animals draws them close. Now the pair must contend with the impending loss of a confidant they’ve shared for close
to a decade.

Daveigh returns to Kingsbrier harboring a secret, but none that cuts as deep as the one Cris has held onto. After allowing herself time to heal, will Daveigh find strength in their friendship to return to her studies? Or will she settle for half her dreams for the chance to be with the man she’s always loved? After admitting to his responsibility in his wife’s death, can Cris relinquish the past that haunts him? Or will he and Daveigh continue down separate paths?

Novels in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series are interconnected standalones, each with an HEA. Additional books are essential pieces of the overall story arcs as ongoing storylines develop throughout the series. Reading them in order is not necessary, but recommended by fans.

Jody’s husband asked what she’d been doing all day. After five years she finally confessed, “When no one is around, I write.”

Okay, It was more like trying to get out of saying a thing. Jody’s a writer. You want it pretty. Let’s compromise.

“Just finish one,” he said, challenging her to complete a story and share it. Little did he know that those words of encouragement meant they’d return from a family vacation with a wild and defiant set of quintuplets stumbling their way into adulthood. Wasn’t raising their three sons enough?

A native of nowhere, Jody settled in New England for 17 years before agreeing to uproot her brood of boys and move to North Carolina. She spends most of her time reading, writing, and hoping that her ravenous children haven’t managed to eat all the ingredients before she cooks dinner.

Title: A Cowboy For Alyssa 
Author: Shirley Penick 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Series: Burlap and Barbed Wire




Looks can be deceiving, and a cowboy only gets one chance to make a good impression.

Alyssa Jefferson is ready to start her veterinary internship at the Rockin’ K ranch, in the beautiful Colorado Rockies, where she will be assisting with the births of over three hundred pregnant cows. It’s a dream come true, and she’s so excited the joy is oozing from her. As icing on the cake, it appears the brothers that own the ranch are sexy as can be. A few months with some eye candy, is just what the doctor ordered.

Beau Kipling sees the sweet young thing coming for her riding lesson, and feels a kick to his gut. What is this hot young woman doing dating a man old enough to be her father? He’s so ticked off, he can’t stop himself from being an ass to her. He’s never, in his whole life, felt the instant attraction he feels for this female, and she’s some old guys arm candy.

When the truth is revealed, that Alyssa is his intern for the spring, and not the sheriff’s new girlfriend, Beau knows he’s blown it. And he can’t even explain why he was so mean. No woman wants to hear a guy thought she was a gold digger. Now they must work together all spring. Can he convince her to give him a second chance?








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.

Join with me as I tell my stories, weaving real tidbits from my life in with imaginary ones. You’ll have to guess which is which. It will be a hoot!

Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.

The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.


They shared me.

But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?

Not one single thing.

That was my boyfriend, Drew.

And that was the last time I saw him.

Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.

You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.

Never faced consequences.

Until today.

Game on.

“I’m sorry,” he says. My ear is pressed against his broad, hard chest. I feel the words more than I hear them. The vibration and cadence make it clear he’s apologizing. Heat radiates off him like he’s the sun and I’m in his orbit.I break away. I’m not his moon.

“You should be sorry,” I snap, marching toward my destination, fighting the soft ground. I don’t want to talk to him. I don’t want to do this. Not now. Definitely not right now. I haven’t seen him for four years. Four long, painful, horrible years. More than 1,400 days of waking every morning knowing I wasn’t with him. Knowing he sat there that night and did nothing while three men raped me. Degraded me. Used and abused me and enjoyed it.

My body goes into a full-blown supernova, skin on fire at the thought. My rage cannot be contained by a mere mortal body.

I turn around. He’s right there, following me.

“Go the fuck away, Drew. I told you. I hate your guts. Leave me alone.”

At least, I think that’s what I say. My mind can’t process words and thoughts right now. I am fixated on the red door at the back entrance of the house, the sprawling mansion that is the only home I’ve ever known, aside from Daddy’s townhome in Washington D.C. If I can make it to that red door without Drew touching me, if I can make it to my bedroom and to my medications where I can take enough to fall asleep, maybe I can get my brain to work again.

And stop the flood of emotions that are making me crazy.

alternative to prison. I’d much rather punish you myself.”
Kayla Sutton faces a question no mother wants to face: what would you do to
save your daughter? Broke and desperate, she siphons thousands from her
employer to pay for her daughter’s treatment, but when Gage Channing
discovers her theft, she is shocked to learn that her boss has no intention of
