Happy Release Day, @pixierants Author Katherine McIntyre! #newrelease #summergiveaway #beachreads #takingroot






Blurb:
I’ve been burned by my ex-fiancée and sentenced myself to long shifts at the hospital ever since. There’s no way I’d give anyone else the opportunity to break my heart again.

Until chance brings me face to face with the girl from my past.

Danielle is still as beautiful as ever, and seeing her reminds me of how I felt about her—how I still feel about her.

But she’s changed. I can see it when I look into her eyes. It’s like she’s no longer living, but merely existing. An enigma laden with secrets from her past—secrets that are forcing her to run from me. Only this time, I won’t let her get away so easily.

I’m determined to peel away every layer of secrets she carries around her, and to protect her from whatever it is that’s causing her to run.

Danielle Reynolds will not slip through my fingers again.

This time…she stays.





Excerpt I

The last thing Adrian Dukas wanted to do after a twelve-hour shift was head to the Gin Mill. However, Lex had asked him to pick up her last paycheck from Mitch, and he needed the guaranteed bait in order for his sister to show to the next family dinner.
She’d been avoiding all of them since she got out from her six months of jail time following a protest that had gotten way too Mad Max to be contained. The tipping point in her case was assault on an officer, since they’d obtained visual proof of Lex screaming like a banshee as she slung the first punch. Typical. Cal offered to pick up her check even though the last time they’d talked, she called Cal an unprincipled shit. However, Adrian was the oldest—if anyone could deal with Alexis, he could. 
He sure as hell hadn’t expected to walk into the middle of a standoff between a big bruiser and a short redhead who prepared to slurp the guy’s spine through a straw.
And when she’d punched the big bruiser square in the jaw?
Well, he just might’ve fallen in love.



Excerpt II
Danny’s throat tightened, and she reached over to weave her fingers through his, leaving her pumps discarded on the sand.
She brought him forward, and together, they took their first stumbling steps into the shivering cold waters that nipped at her toes. The foam slithered around her ankles before receding.
“It’s been such a long time since I had any control over my life that I sometimes forget what stable feels like,” Danny murmured, needing to share some part of her. Even if she couldn’t tell him the facts or fill in the blanks of her story, he still could know her, deep down. She was no better than the shells by her feet, tumbling this way and that at the beck and call of the waves. Whether her cover got compromised or her dad moved cities, something always pulled her away every time she tried to settle into an area.
Adrian squeezed her hand tight. And then he kicked a spray of water in her direction.
Danny spluttered as the ice-cold drops imprinted on her dress and splashed against her face, the surprise smacking into her. For a second, she stood there gaping at him as a hesitant smile curled his lips.
The bubble in her chest expanded and burst as laughs exploded from her. “You fucker,” she shouted, kicking a spray of water back at him.

The Wolf & The Empath


Book One


Blurb:


Mira didn’t need a man, she didn’t need anyone to love and hold her. She didn’t need anyone to protect her, “She was a woman hear her roar.” That’s what she told herself when she was alone with no one to talk to. So why did the man sitting on the bar stool in her club, with all the yummy muscles make her remember why she needed a man?

Tristan was an alien who was going to ground. He didn’t need a female, they rejected him his whole life. What would make him think now would be any different? He knew better than to watch the female with the voluptuous shape as she made love to the pole on stage. His eyes wouldn’t leave her. If he could have one thing before he said goodbye to his new planet, it would be a night with her.

They thought they didn’t need each other until a chance encounter showed them they were wrong. As they find their way to loving each other, they’ll have to deal with an enemy that doesn’t care that Tristan’s a wolf, or that Mira’s an empath.

This new enemy is determined to kill Tristan and take Mira. Is the threat localized or will the world pay if they fail?

Some days falling in love is harder than others.

Excerpt:


Turning she walked into the cemetery, just wandering until she felt a note of incredible sadness and intense longing. Her feet turned and took her towards the well of despair she could feel surrounding her like a wool blanket.

Standing in the doorway of an open crypt was the male from earlier.

“What a strange place to meet up suga. I mean we could have just gone to your place.”

“What are you doing here?” Tristan looked at her as if he knew she was there before he heard her voice.

Her breath caught in her throat. When he was seated at the bar with his head down, she couldn’t really see him. Now that he was standing he was tall with beautiful green eyes. His shoulders were broad, but his waist was trim, and everything in-between looked like solid muscle.

“You a warrior suga?”

“A healer.”

Damn if any of her doctors looked that good, she’d never miss an appointment.

“Bet you’re the richest doctor on the planet.”

He laughed. It was rusty, but it was a laugh.

“So why are you out here?”

He froze her out as he turned to face the crypt again.

“Go home, it's not safe out here.”

“No.”

He turned around his green eyes were wide. Obviously, he wasn’t familiar with the word no.

“What did you say?”

“No, it’s that little word that kids learn to say early in life. The one that says I don’t care what the hell you said, I’m not doing it.”

“I can make you leave.” His eyes were flashing, something dark and dangerous moved behind them.

A smarter woman would back off. But she left smarter a long time ago. When you lived in a world where other people’s emotions were as real as your own. You had to learn to take risks.

“Then make me.” She moved closer to him so that she was in his intimate sphere. He could touch her, hurt her, all she could count on was the very core of him to take the correct action.

“You’re dangerous, to yourself and others,” He growled at her.

She let out the breath she didn’t know she was holding. Being this close made her realize that there was an edge to his emotions. A foreignness she never dealt with before. He made her think of a wild animal, but nothing on earth could compare to what was coming from him.

Looking up she gave him a silly smile edged with relief. “Yeah, I’ve been looking for someone who could handle me for years. Unfortunately, it looks like I’m meant to be alone.”

“So that’s it? You accept that fates a fickle bitch and keep walking?” His voice held a question in it.

Excerpt
Trevor stood on the stoop staring at the dark blue painted front door. The house was a modest two-story, the yard well-maintained, the landscaping professionally done. The paved driveway was empty, and he only hoped that the two-car garage held Damon’s car as he knocked on the door.

After the other night at the bar, it had taken every bit of strength and determination he had to show up at the man’s home. But he couldn’t give up so easily. He understood Damon’s anger. In fact, Trevor embraced it.

Simply because he deserved every drop of it.

But he couldn’t move forward unless Damon forgave him. Even if his former lover wouldn’t accept him back, wouldn’t give him a second chance, his soul might settle a little with forgiveness.

Even so, Damon didn’t owe him anything.

What Trevor did was wrong. Awful, in fact. To hurt the one person in the whole world that loved you completely was...

Unforgiveable.

Trevor closed his eyes and pressed his fists to the sides of his thighs.

He should leave. But seeing Damon the other night had wrecked him. Especially when he saw that this “Mac” Damon had a date with was a woman.

Truthfully, it probably would have bothered him just as much if Mac had been another man.

He hadn’t pushed it, he let Damon leave with his date without another incident. Instead, Trevor had sat at the bar and did something he normally didn’t do anymore, drank until some of the sharp edges of the pain had dulled.

Then he went home.

Or back to his apartment, more like it. He had only moved in a few weeks ago so it still didn’t feel like home.

Truthfully, nothing felt like home since the day he left Damon all those years ago.

It had taken too long to realize Damon was “home” to him. Not being with him made Trevor homeless.

No matter what, he couldn’t keep standing in front of Damon’s home pitying himself.

But he struggled to pull himself from that darkness caused by missing a man so deeply that it was crippling. Damon had always been his light that kept that restlessness at bay, until Trevor had done something stupid and extinguished it.

As he lifted his hand to knock again, a car pulling into the driveway had him turning his head. The garage door lifted as the black Lexus sedan with tinted windows remained in the driveway, even after the door was open.

Trevor waited. The car waited.

Trevor’s heart thumped heavily in his chest, but he couldn’t make himself unfreeze his feet from the concrete stoop.

Then the engine revved slightly as the car pulled into the garage. Before Trevor could force himself to move, the garage door closed.

He remained at the front door, willing it to open.

Fifteen minutes later, he nodded, whispered, “I’m sorry,” turned on his heels and went back to his car.

Damon wasn’t ready to forgive him.

Quite possibly, he might never be.

#NewRelease Dancing with the Single Dad is LIVE #singledadromance #singledadsofseattle #giveaway #NSFW #KU

Title: Dancing With the Single Dad
Series: The Single Dads of Seattle
Author: Whitley Cox
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance/Single Dad
Release Date: July 5, 2019
Hanging up your dance shoes isn't so easy when you can't let go of your former dance partner.

Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other's backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again.
This is Adam's story ...
Single Dad of Seattle, Adam Eastwood, knows that dance school is just the thing for his precocious daughter, Mira. She already spends most days twirling around the house in a tutu and tiara, why not pay a professional to teach her how to do it properly? Only Adam didn't account for that professional to be the Violet Benson from a very famous New York ballet company. Not only is Violet a natural beauty who floats more than she dances, but she's the kind of woman Adam's been searching for all his life.
Grieving the loss of her dance partner and boyfriend, Violet is done with performing on stage. How can she go on when the love of her life is no longer there to catch her? Deciding a change is best, she moves back home to Seattle, determined to fulfill their dream of opening up a dance school. It's not until she's asked to dance for Art in the Park that she realizes maybe she's not quite ready to hang up her dance shoes. Would it be wrong to take the stage one last time? It must be wrong to feel what she feels when she's dancing with Mira's handsome father.
Adam's wounds are still fresh from his divorce, and Violet's dealing with a loss of her own, but somehow they keep winding up in each other's arms with neither of them willing to let go. But it's never easy to conquer the past.
Will Violet let fear and grief keep her from her dreams? Or will Adam convince her that the show must go on and dancing with the single dad might just be the way for her to find her happily ever after?
**Note: This book can be read as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, and of course as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. If you like single dads who take charge, this book is for you.

He’d only known Violet for a week, but there was something special about her. She had a softness to her, a calmness and class that he was missing in his life.

“You’re a really great dance partner,” she whispered, her fingers tightening on his shoulder.
“Helps when the woman you’re dancing with knows the steps. Knows how to move.”
He hadn’t removed his hand from her cheek. She didn’t seem to mind. In fact, she leaned into his touch, her eyelids dropped to half-mast, and a small smile drifted across her mouth. “Thank you for everything tonight. It’s been a nice birthday. I needed something like this.”
He brought their clasped hands down to their sides and instead wrapped his arm around her waist, his hand falling to the small of her back, fingers splaying against her slender frame. “You deserve a happy birthday,” he said softly, his gaze sliding to her plump, red lips. Her tongue darted out and ran along the seam, moistening them and making them shine. Adam had to push down the groan inside him that wanted to break free.
Her lips parted. Was it an invitation?
He wanted it to be an invitation.
He wanted her to welcome his lips, his kiss, his body. Welcome him to wrap his arms around her and absorb the hurt, give her nothing but happiness. She deserved happiness. They all did.
“Adam … ” she whispered. Their faces were close enough now he could feel small, warm puffs of air from her breath on his chin. She lifted her gaze to his. Her bright eyes, the color of hanging moss, were warm and curious.
He dipped his head low and tightened his hold on her cheek and back. She didn’t resist him. Instead she melted into his arms, her body seeming to find comfort in his strength, in his closeness. At least, that’s what he hoped. Gently, he tilted her head up to give him better access to her mouth. Again, she didn’t resist. Her eyes fluttered shut and her lips parted. He took his opening and brushed his lips against hers.
Her pulse raced wildly under his thumb where it rested against her neck, and when a soft moan slid up her throat, the vibration of it ran right through him, landing firmly between his legs. Her chest expanded rapidly against his. But again, she didn’t pull away. No, she wrapped her arms around his neck and deepened the kiss, opening for him, allowing him to slip his tongue inside to explore and taste. She met his demands with her own, sucking on his tongue and nibbling on his bottom lip. The woman could kiss.
Adam’s hand slipped down from her cheek to wrap more tightly around her back, supporting her as he bent her low, taking what she offered. She went with him, clinging to him with an almost frantic desperation.
They fed off each other, their tongues tangling, their breath mingled. She whimpered into his mouth, and he took the kiss deeper. Her legs parted slightly when he dipped her, and he wedged a knee between them, feeling the heat of her against his thigh. He pressed against the V of her legs, and she ground up against him. He pressed again. She bucked up harder. He was hard as granite, and she knew it. She also didn’t seem to mind.

A Canadian West Coast baby born and raised, Whitley is married to her high school sweetheart, and together they have two beautiful daughters and a fluffy dog. She spends her days making food that gets thrown on the floor, vacuuming Cheerios out from under the couch and making sure that the dog food doesn't end up in the air conditioner. But when nap time comes, and it's not quite wine o'clock, Whitley sits down, avoids the pile of laundry on the couch, and writes.
A lover of all things decadent; wine, cheese, chocolate and spicy erotic romance, Whitley brings the humorous side of sex, the ridiculous side of relationships and the suspense of everyday life into her stories. With single dads, firefighters, Navy SEALs, mommy wars, body issues, threesomes, bondage and role-playing, these books have everything we need to satisfy the curious kink in all of us.
