The Belshaw brothers are back in Balkissoch...
Bridie Porter is wearing her Vera Wang gown and veil in the back of her wedding limo when she receives a compromising text about her hotelier groom. Panicked, she tells the driver to keep going and she flees from Melbourne to the small town of Balkissoch in the Adelaide Hills.
It’s the perfect pit-stop to hide from her ex and the press and to earn enough cash to stay out of sight. Unfortunately, the admin job she gets is for a wedding photography business and she’s had her fill of weddings lately. But it’s slim pickings on the work front in a town so teeny. And her new boss is strangely compelling...
After the rush and adrenaline of his job as an LA paparazzo, the last place Cody Belshaw wants to be is back in the small town where he grew up. But thanks to a clause in his father’s will that amounts to blackmail, Cody and his two brothers are stuck running a wedding business for at least a month. If there’s one thing that he’s learned in LA, however, it's to keep business and pleasure very, very separate. Which makes his new admin employee the definition of temptation.
Bridie is desperate to stay anonymous. Cody seeks out secrets for a living. As they delve into the world of brides, boutonnières and dogs-as-best-men, both Cody and Bridie will have to decide if this is a fling...or forever.

Kingdom (Avenues Ink Series #2) by A.M. Johnson
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Mary Ruth - The Reading Ruth
Cover Model: Steve Gehrke
Release Date: May 25, 2017
Kelly Kavanagh was Liam’s happily ever after, his loyal princess. A lifeline to something better than any high school dropout could ever hope for…until the day she left to pursue a dream that didn’t include him and slowly his kingdom crumbled to the ground.
Liam O’Connell was the sun to Kelly’s everlasting moon, her painted prince. A strong and devoted soul to fight the war she was slowly losing against herself…until his promises had become lies and her dream was the only way she would ever survive.
They have more than just miles and time between them now. The twin fortresses they’ve built around their hearts are next to impossible to scale. But, when two parallel fates collide in life and in death, will the impact be powerful enough to break down their self-imposed walls?
Every love story starts with Once Upon a Time, but in real life there are no fairytale endings, and the prince who rescues you...will never wear a crown.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley:
Where have I been that Kingdom is my first book by A.M. Johnson? SERIOUSLY!! I absolutely devoured Kelly and Liam's angsty story. My chest ached through most of this book but I wouldn't change a moment of it.
Liam and Kelly's past was dictating their present but they wanted a new future for themselves. They thought they had found their answer in each other. But life happened. It changed them. Changed their wants and dreams. They both thought they had moved on, even believed it for a while. And then life happened again- there was no hiding anymore.
What a whirlwind. I liked that this book spanned a good amount of time. It really let me feel everything Liam and Kelly were. Gah! There was so much hurt and pain and resentment that I wasn't quite sure how they would dig their way out of it. But somehow, someway, they channeled their pain. Turned it into purpose and passion. Used it to make new plans and chase new dreams.
There was SO much good in this book. Light. Dark. Dreams. Loss. Fear. Duty. Family. Loyalty. Hope. Sacrifice. Redemption. Love. A.M. Johnson tore me to shreds and built me back up ten fold. Kelly and Liam's journey was real, and painful and uniquely theirs. I am so going back and reading the first book in this series and will be waiting (maybe not so patiently) for the next.

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and international bestselling author Tia Louise…
The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.
But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.
Sex in his office…
Sex in the on-set kitchen…
Sex in the supply closet…
She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge…ego.
He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.
Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.
It’s just a hook-up, she says.
When can we do it again? he says.
With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.
THE LAST GUY is the first white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC COMEDY from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise. It features Fireball-fueled hookups, Doritos Locos Tacos, attack monkeys, toddlers in tiaras, and one fabulous drag queen. Prepare for frantic clicking (or page flipping!) and smoking-hot sexytimes all the way to the out-of-this-world happily-ever-after.

My best friend is married.
Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me.
I like my life the way it is. Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.
Of course I say yes.
What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone.
Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.
Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.
He always has to be the life of the party.
He’s also arrogant.
And a playboy.
I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.
Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.
Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice.
Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.
But after two weeks what I didn’t expect is that I’d been wrong about him.
That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.
That his arrogance is actually confidence.
And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.
So yes, I’ve misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although there are times I still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.
And I want more of him.
The question is--does he want more of me?
Will be available on Kindle Unlimited!

Sweat beads at my brow as the breath whooshes out of me. Iâm bent over, arms dangling down. Beneath me, the most delicious, hardest length Iâve ever felt presses into my mound. I want to rock against it.
I canât move.
He wonât let me.
He keeps me like this, draped over his lap, immobile.
The sound of a strike reverberates throughout the room, but silence remains. No noise. It isnât allowed.
Moisture drips from my every pore, and yet, Iâm focused on this one drop as it gathers at the center of my forehead. Becomes bigger.
Everythingâs out of control.
Hyper-awareness consumes my every breath.
I count to ten and it falls to the ground.
A small splat no one will ever hear. And yet, I do. The sound as it hits the floor causes my breathing to stutter and skin to prickle with goose bumps.
âThe last ten, love,â Noah whispers, his hand massaging the heated flesh beneath his fingertips. It hurts, but the pain is replaced by a yearning so strong that I whimper in his lap.
Like a bitch in heat I arch and ask for more.
To make this burning within my veins stop.
With one hand he gathers the hair at my nape and forces my head back. A harsh tugâIâm in his controlâforces my eyes to his. Hooded dark blue eyes look at me with concern, but behind their depths I see another emotion burning.
His want mirrors my own. This perversion is awakening something darker from within. It growsâchokes us, because behind it all we were meant to end up like this. My body at his hands. In his control.
Those hungry eyes look at me. Silent communication. Are you okay?
I blink back a please and the asshole smirks. Aware of what I need even as my mind fights the sins I have laid bare to his eyes.
My release is so close. A fresh round of arousal drips from my core and onto his boxers.
Iâm positioned over his lap, ass up, and the very tip of his cock is against my hip. Heâs hard. Jerks against me when I gyrate against his length.
âPlease,â I beg aloud this time and his hold on my hair tightens. The hand kneading my ass cheek spreads me open to look at my depravity. At what his own hands have caused.
That thong, that minuscule piece of fabric, canât hide what this game is doing to me. The evidence, slick and inviting, is on his lap.
I shift against his cock and he hisses. âBe still!â
A crackle follows his command and we both shiver. Each time it appears, things change, become more.
âVery good my pets, but the audience wants more. Lose the panties, but without her standing up. Be creative, and there will be a reward.â
I exhale shakily. âDo it.â
âAre you sure?â As the word leave his lips, those same fingers that a minute ago exposed me to his eyes, now hold my panties in his grip. He doesnât wait for a reply. A tug follows his question, the sound of fabric stretching meets my ears, and I nod.
Another pull and I feel every welt that forms on my skin from the rough treatment. The sole sounds in the room are his harsh breathing and mine. Loud exertion, but at the same time desperate for more.
What else could I say? No. Please donât?
It wouldâve been a bullshit lie and we both know it. The voice commands and we follow. It asks and we accept our fate.
Thereâs a sick part of me that relishes in this madness. Craves him. My Noah.
We have been dealt our cards; there is no escape. We must accept our fate.
Either we fuck each other, or we die.

CEO Aiden Kelley’s life of billionaire extravagance is flipped upside down when his ex shows up with a ten-year-old she claims is his. Totally out of his element and losing the control so integral to his success, he needs help. To top it all off, the only constant woman in his life, his executive assistant, has given notice just when he needs her help to survive his newfound fatherhood.
Chelsea Houston is an executive assistant, not a nanny. The only person more clueless about kids is her boss. Helping him on a daddy-daughter road trip is her last task before he’ll accept her two weeks’ notice and she can be free of the infuriating man she’s had a crush on for longer than she’d admit.
Aiden’s carefully ordered life has never been so disorganized, and he’s suddenly tempted by the things he thought he could never have. Things like love and family. Who knew chaos could be so damn fun?
This close, he could smell her. He could see the way her pupils dilated when he touched her. He could hear the quick intake of breath as she otherwise went very, very still.
“I can’t begin to thank you enough for your quick thinking and willingness to help make all of these bumps in the road smooth for Waverley,” he said.
But what he was thinking was that kissing her might not be such a bad idea after all. He was thinking of how her lips might taste and how she’d fit into his arms. “Glermpfh,” she answered, turning away.
Just a little. Not something he even would’ve noticed if he hadn’t been so intently studying her. “We should get a room,” he said.
She abruptly yanked the nozzle out of the car, but didn’t stop squeezing the handle, sloshing gas all over the side of the car and onto his legs and shoes. Her scent vanished, washed away in the noxious fumes of fuel.

Much Ado About BachelorsWindy City Bachelors by Caitlyn Blue
Publication Date: May 25, 2017
Drama teacher Sarah Callahan has been falling for Harrison Academyâs hot, new chemistry teacher since the first day of school. Unfortunately, this sexy nerd has a policy against dating coworkers after his relationship with a teacher at his former school crashed and burned. So what do you do when youâre hot for teacher? Pretend to be drunk so heâll take advantage of you of course.
Reed Barron has done a great job resisting the beautiful, quirky Sarah. Then comes the night she parties a little too hard and begs him to kiss her. Howâs a guy supposed to hold out againstâ¦begging? Chemistry like theirs doesnât happen every day, but Reed isnât going to give their romance a chance. Heâs learned that when things get too intense, itâs safer to retreat.
Armed with Shakespearean quotes and a Goldendoodle puppy, Sarah is determined to teach Reed how to open his heart. But when heâs offered the opportunity of a lifetime to teach abroad, it looks like she might lose himâand their shot at loveâforever.
Excerpt:Sarah is a monsoon, earthquake, and climate change all rolled into one adorable package. When she comes out of the locker room, wearing a blue-and-white-patterned bikini, my pulse actually stops. Then, it lurches forward at twice its normal pace when she smiles at me. The strain from keeping my attraction hidden makes the muscles in my face feel as if theyâve turned to stone, but I canât release my grip on the indifferent mask that has served me so well.
After last nightâs daring halter dress, I knew she had an outstanding body, but bared by a bikini, Iâm hard-pressed not to appreciate each and every one of her assets, from her perky breasts to her tiny waist and flat stomach. Her hips flare enticingly, almost begging my fingers to grip them while I slide into her.
Fuck, Iâm dying.
âDo you like my bathing suit?â she asks, misinterpreting my interest.
I blink and redirect my attention to the bikini and away from the delectable body beneath it. For several seconds, my brain refuses to process what Iâm seeing, and then it all falls into place.
âAdorable,â I echo.
Iâm spellbound as Sarah lifts onto her toes and strikes a pose with one hand on her hip and the other saluting me, like a pinup girl from the forties.
My mouth goes dry at her cheeky sex appeal. And then, when I think I canât take any more, she spins, presenting her back to me.
Stretched across her tight, round ass is R2-D2âs round dome and the words Beep Boop.
âBrynn bought it for me.â
Sheâs slowly killing me, and my strangled voice reflects my torment. âShe obviously knows what you like.â
A smug grin dispels the flirty vixen from a moment earlier, and sheâs back to being my Sarah. Upbeat, happy, a natural charmer. I actually find myself grinning back at her, half in relief. Sexy Sarah is impossible to resist, but I can almost keep my wits around fun-loving Sarah.
While I concentrate on getting my libido back under control, Sarahâs attention has ventured toward the broad turquoise rectangle of the gym pool. On Saturday nights, itâs open swim, and the staff takes down the ropes that mark the lanes. Several families have brought their young children, and the atmosphere is noisy and exuberant.
âI guess we should do this.â Sarahâs lively expression dims as she asks, âWhere do you want me?â
In my arms. Beneath me in bed. Up against a wall. In the shower. Bent over my dining room table. In front of the fireplace. My gaze strays toward the large hot tub, and I picture her bare breasts floating just above the surface while hundreds of bubbles caress our skin.
I need to get myself under control, or I wonât be any help to her.
I clear my throat. âThe water is three and a half feet deep in this pool. Iâll meet you by the stairs.â I point to where she should go, and then I do what all the signs forbid and dive in.
