First Pages – Sneak a Peek

Snowflakes piled up on each other as I rocked Riley to sleep. The ground turned white as I thought of the things I kept hidden. The rings on my left hand sparkled in the glow of a candle, reminding me of the lies. I tried to convince myself that a secret is only a lie if it harms someone. For so long my secrets only harmed myself. Now, sweet Patrick introduced himself to my life and pretended to not fall in love with me. And my secrets would harm him if he got too close. So I built a wall between us to keep him from the truth. The heartbreak.

I called him my best friend. Nothing more. He accepted that. He accepted everything. Sometimes I wished he weren’t so nice. Sometimes I wished he would pry the truth out of me and set me free. But he didn’t know. No one did. My lies were so real that I grew to believe them myself.

Snowflakes pressed against the window. I placed Riley in her crib, on her side like she liked. Her eyes flickered and then closed. I longed for the kind of peace she had. Soon life would steal it from her too. A life of many painful surgeries and nights in the hospital. A life without her father.

I laid my cheek against the cold window. Inhaled.

“You can do this,” I whispered to myself.

When Samantha Ryan receives a call from her mother asking her to come home and run the family business–a real live Nevada brothel–she’s not thrilled about it, but she agrees. Realizing that her final night out with her friends will be the last for a while, Samantha takes the opportunity presented to her in the form of Chase Hanson.

Chase had his eye on the beautiful brunette all night and when she asks to go home with him, he takes her home and experiences the most mind-blowing sex of his life. The next day, they part, with Samantha saying she’ll be out of town assisting her mother for a while, but that she’ll call. He feels as if they really made a connection and desperately hopes that she’ll call. Meanwhile, he’s still forced to fulfill a prior obligation and heads out of town to a brothel to celebrate his buddy’s bachelor party.

When they find each other at the brothel, conclusions abound. Can these two work out their differences?

“First let me say, thank you, Ms. Gerow for the scorching hot cover! I fear that I’ve become a Tina Gerow junkie and Take It Off is a perfect example as to why. The chemistry between Samantha and Chase is HOT and ignites the pages. Rarely have I read love scenes that are hotter so you might want to have a bucket of ice and a dry pair of panties nearby when you read this sexy story. Not only is Take It Off hot, it’s sweet and funny. Tina Gerow’s creativity will have you laughing out loud and turning each page just to see what she’s come up with next! My only regret was that this story wasn’t longer!”

Fighting Fire (Part One): The Intern (Steamy New Adult Romance)

by Emily Stone

Claire Reynolds has had to fight for everything that she has achieved in her life. An erratic foster-care upbringing has left her determined to put in the hard work necessary to achieve her dreams and build a solid future.

Armed with her MBA and a five-year plan she has landed a prestigious internship with Bellingham Developments. If she excels, she will surely be offered a permanent job and a chance to make her mark in the industry she loves.

Enter Andrew Bellingham, heir to the Bellingham empire. Drew is most definitely not a part of any five-year plan. His playboy reputation is often the talk of the town; but Claire is surprised to find that Drew is completely the opposite of the gossip that surrounds him. Charming and intelligent, not to mention devastatingly handsome, Drew is a man who gets what he wants. And despite his father’s dismay, what he wants is Claire…

SNEAK PEEK!

“I’m going to leave you two to it,” Nora said, “but might I suggest actually speaking directly with the man?” Her eyes sparkled with humor.

“I should go with you,” I insisted. I felt like it was rude to let her leave alone.

“Take some time to sort him out and I’ll see you on Monday. Good job this week, Claire. I couldn’t have asked for a better intern.”

I seriously had the coolest boss ever, but I heard the veiled warning in her words of advice. I needed to make the drama go away so we could focus on work.

“Flavor of the month?” Drew frowned as he took Nora’s vacant seat beside me.

“I’m flattered…” Honesty, that’s what Nora had recommended.

“But?”

“How is this hard?” I blurted much to his amusement.

“You’re adorable when you’re mad.” He chuckled.

“Drew! Please try to understand…I, I come from nothing,” I stammered. “I grew up in foster care and I’ve had to claw my way here. Failure is not an option – failure is the difference between having a roof over my head or a spot on the street. This internship is everything, and I cannot risk the possibility that this could turn into a real job, on a silly flirtation. I understand you want to irritate your father and that showering your attention on a nobody like me is a good way to do that…but it’s too much of a risk for me. Can’t you understand that?”

“Two things and then I will leave you to your evening,” he said softly and I could see the anger flashing in his eyes. “First, I had no idea how much this job means to you and I didn’t realize my attention could be such a negative thing. I promise I will not bother you at work. I would hate to think I could jeopardize your future. Second, I am not trying to piss my father off by…what was it? â??Showering my attention on a nobody like you’. I resent that you would even think of yourself in that light. I find I’m incredibly intrigued by you, Claire. I happen to think you are beautiful, funny, charming, completely refreshing and the more I get to know you the more I like you. I admire your drive and dedication and now that I know something of your background, I think I am in complete awe of you. I won’t interfere with your internship, but I would like to make you aware right now that I absolutely intend to pursue your attention outside of work.”

I was completely overwhelmed by his words as well as his anger. Anger that I didn’t see myself the way he saw me. I was still reeling when his lips brushed mine in a tentative kiss that sent my heart racing in my chest.

“Good evening Claire,” he whispered as he stood to leave me.

Twilight Tiffanies (A Short Gem)

by Linda Shelnutt

How would it feel to re-join a soul mate on Earth in 1985 if you’d been apart since the beginning of Time, a mate who didn’t recall who you were and might not accept you in that lifetime?

How would it feel if you had knowledge which might help individuals avoid unnecessary suffering, but you would have to pull that knowledge through little at a time, and would doubt yourself and that knowledge due to the density of the mental atmosphere on Earth.

The most entertaining part of this saga as it continues in The Rose and the Pyramid and the Books of Gem, is experiencing the feelings developing between these two star crossed individuals.

This is not a simple love story, though. The fabric of reality itself is at stake within the machinations of this personal poetic exchange.

Be ready to feel deeply and dreamily.

This short story [worked from chapters 7 & 8] can stand alone or serve as an appetizer for The Rose and the Pyramid and the Books of Gem.

A second Short Gem based on chapters [2,3,4] from The Rose and the Pyramid is also available:

by Joyce Nwanokwai

EXCERPT:

WHERE IS THE PROMISE?

Never would have said I loved you,

Long have I kept my secrets,

Until you came and told me you loved me, too;

I felt with those words could win my battles.

Even when my body became weak,

My heart didn’t give up on you,

And when you promised to be always there for me,

I told myself you are my life.

But now that I need you,

And you are nowhere to be found,

What happens to me?

ANOTHER EXCERPT:

NOT RIPE YET

They met at a junction,

He asked her of her passion,

But while on the motion,

She discovered his intention,

Then she echoed in a notion:

“I am still growing!”

“I am still growing!”

SPIRIT OF A CONQUEROR contains 50 collections of poems in multiple genres that are exhilarating, deeply emotional, profoundly relating, or just outright funny! With this second release following her first book WINGS OF A POET, Joyce Nwanokwai is already gaining a traction among poetry lovers. Feel poetry in all its different, romantic expressions.

Cash For Christmas

by Alice Addy

CASH FOR CHRISTMAS

Alexandra Thorne found it difficult to keep the family farm going while raising her two small children, alone. Ever since the untimely death of her husband, there always seemed to be a shortageâ??a shortage of food, a shortage of warm clothing, never enough money, and a shortage of time. Gone were the days when she could play leisurely with her daughter. No longer was there sufficient time to teach her son all the things he needed to know as he grew into a man. Up long before dawn, and always the last one to turn in, Alexandra feared she was fighting a hopeless battle, with no victory in sight. If she only had a bit of luck, she might be able to turn things around.

From out of the snowy blackness, a monster reared up on its enormous hind legs and came crashing down, striking the man with a near fatal blow. It would be weeks before he would be able to care for himself. If it weren’t for the tender mercies shown by the beautiful woman, with the fiery red hair, he probably would have died. At least that is what he told himself.

Sam could have left, but where would he go? Having no memory of who he was or from whence he came, he figured there was no real hurry. Besides, he’d taken quite a shine to the lovely widow and her two children; not to mention, they clearly needed the help he could provide. For weeks they managed to get along quite well, until Alexandra sneaked behind his back and did something they might all regret. Her hasty actions could bring about a sudden end to their relationship. Hopelessly in love with her, he didn’t know whether to kiss her sweet lips or wring her lovely neck.

However, this is the Christmas season, and it has a way of bringing out the very best in people. Alex and Sam are no exceptions. As the long-awaited day approaches, they learn a few things about themselves and clear up old misunderstandings. They discover many wondrous things to celebrate.

Christmas is always special, but some are more memorable than others. No one will ever be the same after this year, for it is a true blessing to have Cash for Christmas.
