BLURB
I'm a world famous tattoo artist with a six month waiting list. Everybody's begging me to put my ink on them. I'm the hottest shit in L.A., and can get any girl I want. So the last thing I expect is for Ash Carter to walk into my shop and blow me off.
I've spent the last seven years screwing half the women in the northern hemisphere, but nobody could come close to the girl I left behind. Ash was my world. But in order to protect her, I had to let her go. It was the biggest mistake of my life. And now I'll do anything to get her back.
It's been seven years since we last spoke. Seven long years of trying to ignore the memory of her skin, her eyes, her incredible confidence. She is everything I remember. Still stubborn and feisty and sexy as hell. They say you should forgive and forget. But Ash can never forget what I did. And I can never forgive myself.
She's left a permanent mark on my heart.
But even if she takes me back, will we be able to overcome the past? Will we be able to move forward towards our future?

Tempt Me by Carly Phillips

Genre: Contemporary Romance Publication Date: January 16th

The single dad & the nanny ...
Burned by an ex with a wandering eye, Austin Rhodes has sworn off women. His sole focus is his young daughter - and despite his good intentions, the little girl's live-in nanny. He hired Mia Atwood to care for his child but he finds himself lusting after her instead. Keeping his distance isn’t easy but he’s determined to be a gentleman. Until Mia's past comes back to haunt her and she’s in need of Austin’s brand of protection. Suddenly she’s his in every sense of the word — and he’ll do whatever it takes to shield the woman who tempts him beyond reason.


Tempt Me is book two in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series by Carly Phillips. OMG These bodyguards that work for Alpha Security are only getting sexier and falling for woman that keep them on their toes. 

Austin Rhodes is a single dad that has had a marriage go terribly wrong. He will do anything to protect his daughter, even if that means keeping her away from her mother. The one thing he knows he did right was hire a nanny that has the strength to stand up for what's right. There are so many reason that he needs to stop looking at the nanny like she is dessert, but watching the way she takes care of his daughter is making it hard to stay away from her. When her past and his problematic ex-wife become an issue, will he be able to do whatever it takes to protect everyone he loves.

Mia Atwood wanted a safe place and a good job, after leaving behind the nightmare of her last job she believed she had found it as a nanny. The hardest part was the walking temptation of a man she worked for. Caring and falling in love with his little girl is easy, it's keep a distance from her father that makes it difficult. Will she be able to resist temptation when she realizes he is feeling the same way about her? Will Mia be strong enough to protect the man she is falling for and his daughter when her past comes looking for her?

Tempt Me is a sizzling taboo read, single father falling for young hot nanny. If you don't mind that little tidbit than this book is definitely for you. I love the way Carly Phillips brings the friendships of  the Alpha Security guards together, it leaves you wanting and caring for these characters. The passion and suspense kept me on the edge and I can't wait for more from these hot bodyguards.
5 Stars!

Excerpt:

“So what’s your end game?” ”She paused, lowering the cup from her lips. “You’ll laugh. Or at the very least you won’t think it’s overly ambitious.” He ignored his coffee, more interested in the fascinating woman sitting beside him. “Try me.” “Someday I’d like a family of my own. A lot of kids not all mine. Kids who’ve been in foster care too long and never adopted because everyone wants babies.”She rubbed her cup between her palms, not meeting his gaze. “See? Nothing all that enterprising, like becoming a teacher or succeeding in business.” He couldn’t stop staring, enthralled not just by her beauty but by her heart. “I think it’s inspiring, what you want to do.”And the man by her side when she fulfilled her dreams would be one lucky SOB. “Not for me, because been there, done that…the family and marriage thing, but I’m sure it can work for the right couple.”He shrugged, realizing he’d admitted way too much. “I hope you find what you’re looking for,”he said, meaning it. She glanced down, her gaze sweeping over her watch on her wrist. “Oh! It’s time to pick up Bailey.”She crumbled the napkin beside her and picked up her cup as she rose to her feet. He stood, joining her as they tossed their half-finished drinks in the trash. They headed to the car and he beat her there, opening the passenger door before she could grab the handle herself. He turned back and she stopped short. He caught her before she bumped into him, grasping her around the waist and pulling her close. She sucked in a surprised breath but didn’t back away, her face inches from his. Her mouth so damned close. He knew better, he really did but he was tired of denying himself what he wanted and his body was definitely on board. He waited for a sign she wasn’t right there with him. If she pulled back or jerked away, he’d apologize and they’d move forward from there. Instead she swayed toward him, sealing her fate. He grasped her waist, anchoring himself by touching her, the soft sweater doing little to hide her slender body or delicate curves. He tipped his head, sliding his tongue across her lips and with a soft moan, she parted her mouth and let him inside. She tasted of vanilla and coffee, a sweet flavor that was all Mia. Their tongues touched, tangled, and his body came alive with a hunger he hadn’t known before. She raised her arms, hands coming to his biceps, holding on for a brief second before she gave in and wrapped her arms around him, pulling him close, giving him all the excuse he needed to deepen the kiss. He tilted his head and consumed her, swirling his tongue around the further recesses of her mouth. He had no wall, no car door to push her against, which was a good thing because he wouldn’t have been able to control himself if he crushed his body against hers.

From: HRHKit@PrimrosePalace.org.uk
SUBJECT: ENGAGEMENT CONTRACT (Marked Confidential)

FROM THE DESK OF HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE CHRISTOPHER

Emily—Thank you for joining me for dinner tonight. And for agreeing to my proposal, as ludicrous as it is. Desperate times call for fake engagements. At least in my family.

I am attaching the contract we discussed. Our lawyers asked that I highlight the following clauses:

  • The engagement shall last ninety days
  • Both parties are to appear genuinely in love at all royal appearances
  • Beyond required public displays of affection, there shall be no contact of any kind between the parties

The first half of your payment will be deposited into your account upon the signing of this contract. Be sure to note your ring size. We would like to make prompt delivery of the family emerald. The Queen and I thank you in advance for your discretion.

Cheers,
Kit

P.S.—Sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ex sounds like a proper knob head.

P.P.S.—You looked stunning tonight.

Azalea Barnes has hated Drake Collins since the day he broke her teenaged heart.
Fast forward almost seven years later and her libido still hasn't gotten the memo.
Now they're frenemies... with benefits.
Which suits Azalea just fine. She gets what her body craves while keeping her heart safe. Kind of.
Mostly.

Drake has loved Azalea since the day they met. He knows that she's his forever. Too bad she only sees him as a good time. He wants more. Needs more.
If only he could convince her that it's real this time. He's more determined than ever to prove to Azalea that chemistry like theirs doesn't exist only in the bedroom.

The odds may be against Drake, but he's prepared for an uphill battle.

Excerpt

“Drake Collins, I don’t see you on our appointment book today,” Seraphine says, wagging her finger at me with a twinkle in her dark brown eyes.
“That’s because I’m not. Does Azalea have time to fit me in?”
“Hmmm. Magnolia could fit you in quicker than—”
“Nah, I don’t mind the wait. How long’s it gonna be?”
“About twenty minutes.”
I turn, and make myself comfy in one of the waiting room chairs, “That’ll be just fine, Seraphine.”
She rolls her eyes at me, “I’ll let her know you’re here.”
“Totally unnecessary. It’s a surprise visit.”
Seraphine shakes her head at me, but goes back to whatever she was doing at the computer, thank God. Because I’m counting on the element of surprise to work in my favor here. If she knows I’m here, she’ll start working on getting her walls up, but if I catch her off guard, I might just catch her unguarded, if you know what I mean.
To pass the time, I play around on my phone, checking social media and shooting the shit with Simon and Cash in group text. I impress myself by only checking the time every five minutes, but my God, it really does feel like an eternity waiting on her.
I perk up when I hear the sound her sweet voice coming closer. “You have a wonderful day Mrs. Jones, and be sure to tell Seraphine to book extra time at your next appointment so that we can do those lowlights.”
She doesn’t walk far enough into the room to see me, so I stand and follow behind her to her station. She grabs the broom and starts sweeping, but jumps and throws it down when she sees me. “Holy guacamole, you scared the ba-jeezus outta me!”
I cover my smile with my fist, “I can see that.”
“What’re you doing here?”
“Need a haircut,” I tell her, claiming her chair.
She scowls her trademark scowl at me, her eyes drilling into me like lasers. “So, make an appointment.” She turns of walk away, but I reach out and snag her wrist.
“Don’t need one,” I tell her, knowing it will make her that much more irritated. I know these games are stupid, but her mad gets me so hot.
“You most certainly do,” Azalea replies, her cheeks red with anger.
“Pretty sure there’s a sign in the window that reads ‘Walk-in’s welcome’. You’re certainly not making me feel very welcome. Not at all. Which, as the owner of this establishment, you should know is bad for business.” I tsk, wagging my finger at her.
 “Drake Ulysses Collins, you get your ass up right now!” Azalea hisses through clenched teeth. Her eyes are so big, they look like they might pop right on out of her head.
“Nah, don’t think so. You get your cute ass over here, and buzz my hair down.”
“No!”
“Now.” It’s a battle of wills and I’m playing to win. We remain frozen, staring one another down, until she rolls her eyes and stomps back over to me, like I knew she would. Drake, 1. Azalea, 0.
With a snap of her wrists, she has the cape draped around me. She shoots me an evil gleam, before pulling it as tight as it will go, damn near choking me. “Take it easy, Bit,” I croak, only to be whopped upside the back of my head with her comb. “What the hell?” I yell at her, but she just smiles and pops the guard she knows I like onto her clippers.
With one hand planted on the top of my head, she uses the other to move the clippers through my hair, buzzing it down in fluid movements. Azalea takes her time, dragging out my simple buzzcut because she thinks it’ll annoy me. She couldn’t be more wrong. Hell, for half the haircut, her perky C cups are all up in my face, and for the rest of it… her hands are on me, and there’s not a single thing annoying about any of that. No, I fucking love it.
“There, all done assface.”
“Assface, huh? That an invitation?”
“God! You’re so gross!”
Grasping the front of the cape with both hands, I pull until it unsnaps. Rising from the chair, I take two steps toward Azalea, effectively backing her into her station. “Gross? You think I’m gross?”  I gently run my nose up her neck, lingering just below her ear. “Naw, you don’t mean that, do you?” My voice is hoarse and low, the sound of it causes Azalea’s skin to break out in goosebumps.
“Sure do,” she fires back, but her tone—all soft with want— betrays her words.
I take a step closer, leaving not even an inch between us, “We both know you’re lying through your teeth, but that’s okay Bit. Best be glad we’re in your place of business, or I’d call your bluff.” I cover her lips with mine and tunnel my fingers into her long, blonde hair. “Or maybe I still will,” I speak the words against her lips, delighting in the feel of her rapid breaths. “Right here. Right now.” I punctuate the words with a kiss, hard and rough, before stepping back.
Azalea stands there, bracing herself against her station, almost as if she’d crumple to the floor without its support, and damn if that doesn’t make me feel like the king of the world. “Thanks for the haircut. You have a nice day, and when I call you later… answer.”

Excerpt Reveal for Bounty by Pavan Kaur & K.L. Humphreys

Title: Bounty
Authors: Pavan Kaur & K.L. Humphreys
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: February 1
LUCY
This isn't your typical love story.
My life was great, I was happy until I heard something I shouldn't have.
Now I'm running and there's only one man that can save me.
He's also the one man I shouldn't trust.
Will the bounty be too high for him?

CASH
It was meant to be an easy job, Probably the easiest I've ever had.
But something about her threw me.
The Bounty on her head is tempting.
But then again, so is she.
The question is, can I save her?



Gasping for breath, I quickly fumble around looking for the light. Once I find it, light fills the room. A cold breeze hits my skin. I sit up in bed and look over at my window and I’m one hundred percent certain that I shut the window before I fell asleep. My body starts to shake. I could have sworn I felt someone in here. I take a few deep breaths to calm my shaking body. Getting out of bed, my feet hit the cold floor as I walk over to the window. As I close it I quickly glance out and see a car drive off. So many thoughts start running through my mind and not one of them are good.
Ruby keeps saying I’m paranoid and it’s in my head, but I’m not. I know that someone is watching me; I can feel eyes on me. I didn’t just wake up because I felt the breeze coming into the room, I woke up feeling that someone was in my room. Am I going crazy? I have a strong feeling that I am. I mean, I’ve been so scared to come home; along with the fact that Henry has been acting really weird around me, so much so Mom picked up on it this morning. Henry has been questioning me about every detail of my day from what I’ve done at school to what are my plans with Ruby.
Henry took Mom away for the day which I thought was nice; she needed some time with him without all the fighting. But I’ve felt like someone has been in the house with me. I’ve been looking over my shoulder every five seconds.
Walking back over to my bed, I turn the clock toward me. Midnight, great. I won’t be able to go back to sleep now, I’m worried that whoever it was in my room might come back. Jumping out of bed, I run over to the main light. I’m so paranoid, I want to make sure that there’s nothing in my room. That everything is where it should be. Has Henry been spying on me? Could there be a camera in my room? I start searching, starting at one side of the room. I search everywhere, I lift everything up, making sure that there’s nothing hidden underneath them.
My bag. I rush to it and tip the contents out onto my bed, I search through everything to make sure that there’s nothing there. I don’t know why, but it’s like he knows. He knows that I heard something at his sick meeting, that he knows that I heard about the girls. I haven’t been able to get that tattoo out of my head; I’ve drawn it multiple times, hell I’ve even Googled it to see if there was any meaning behind it or if it was affiliated with a gang or organization, but nothing, I couldn’t find anything.
Looking over at the lamp, I rush over and start to feel around, seeing if I come in contact with something that shouldn’t be here. Moving my hand around, my fingers hit something. My hands begin to sweat, my breathing starts to become labored. I start to panic. Please let it be a dead fly, anything but a mic. Trying to get a grip on it so I don’t drop it, I pull it out, and my eyes widen at the sight. I throw the mic back in. Henry's been listening to me. How long?
I start pacing the room, replaying all the conversations I’ve had in my room with Ruby. I’ve spoken to Dad but nothing about what I heard, but I told Ruby. What did we talk about yesterday? Did I mention the conversation? I've been paranoid that they have been standing outside my door, so I'm sure I never said anything. I need to tell Ruby about this and tell her to be careful too.
After three hours of tossing and turning, not able to go to sleep with the fear and all the thoughts running through my head, I open my bedroom door and start walking toward Henry’s office. I’m not even conscious of my actions; my mind is still in turmoil as my body moves. This is the only time that I will be able to look through his office, knowing that he won’t be home. I stop outside his office. This isn’t me. What the hell am I doing? I'm second guessing myself, which is only telling me to walk away from this. The hole I'm standing in is already big enough, I don't need to dig it further down. My body has different ideas when I open the door.

It should have been easy.
I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.
I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.
The worst part is that I should have known better.
Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.
“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”
Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.
Guess what? I didn’t listen.
I signed the contract.
World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.
My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.
Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.
Then he took my heart.
Then he took my all.
