âYouâll stay with me.â
She canât resist the rich rancher!
Emma Layton is working in Wyoming to get away from her abusive ex. But when wealthy ranch owner Carson McNeill learns of her plight, he insists she stay with him for protection. Emma agreesâeven knowing this cowboy may prove irresistible.... Proximity soon leads to passion, night after night. But when Carson learns her secret connection to his family, this ride gets a whole lot wilder!
âWow.â She glanced over at her silent driver, wondering if heâd grown immune to the beauty. âIâve never seen stars like this.â
Maybe some of her wonder seeped through his frustration, because he slowed the vehicle, then stopped altogether, the engine rumbling at idle in the creeping night. They sat on a hilltop with meadows rolling out into the distance on one side, and a shadow of rocky cliffs and trees on the other. He snapped off the headlights to give them a better view and turned off the ignition. The engine ticked for a few moments and then went silent.
âItâs amazing how much the lights of a city detract from the night sky.â Carson tipped his head back, too, his hands resting on his sprawled, denim-covered knees.
The right one hovered close to her leg, radiating a warmth she could feel. Or maybe it was the electric current of attraction that made her skin tingle that way beneath her leggings. She had been on a few dates since breaking things off with Austin but nothing serious. She definitely hadnât experienced the sizzling awareness she got from being around Carson. What a shame for her body to finally wake up again around a man she needed to impress with her professionalism.
âItâs funny,â she said, needing to break the intimate thread of silence between them, âbecause I always think I live in a quieter area of Los Angeles.â She tried not to think about his knee next to hers. His hand close to her leg. But memories of the way heâd touched her earlierâshifting her thigh on the horseâsent a fresh surge of heat through her.
âEven in Cheyenne, you canât see the stars the way you can out here. There arenât many perks to ranching, but the night sky is definitely one of them.â
Straightening in her seat, she peered over at him. The breeze turned cooler.
âYou donât like your work?â She was curious about him, this man who allowed a film production company onto his property but couldnât really relinquish control. âAfter seeing you on horseback today, I guess I just assumed you were born in a saddle.â
Heâd ridden beside her briefly before setting her loose to try the track on her own.
âAlmost.â She thought she heard a hint of a smile in his voice. Or was that wishful thinking? âBut I never imagined myself overseeing cattle at my age. Ranching is fine for my twin brother, but I thought Iâd be riding rodeo into my thirties.â
She hadnât known about the twin brother. Or the rodeo past. Still, she could relate to what he was saying. She felt him shift beside her, turning toward her. A gust of wind blew through her hair, flicking strands against her cheek.
âI never thought Iâd be recreating sword fights or high-speed chases, either. But sometimes life takes surprising turns.â
âIâll bet itâs an interesting story how you got here, Emma Layton.â Her name on his lips felt as intimate as a caress to a woman who hadnât been touched by a man in a long, long time.
The rush of heat through her veins shouldnât have caught her off guardâsheâd been feeling it all day around him. Sheâd run four miles to try to escape it. Even so, the magnetic force that seemed to pull her toward him was like nothing sheâd ever experienced. Her shoulders shifted fractionally closer. Her knee brushed his.
She drew in a sharp breath at the contact, ripples of pleasure radiating out from the point where she touched him. She forgot what they were talking about. Couldnât think of words to say even if she remembered. There was only the moment and the man. The endless starry sky enveloping them like a dream.
Maybe that was why she found herself leaning even closerâit all felt surreal. Like a time out from the worry and stress of her real life, where everything was suddenly simpler. Where kissing Carson McNeill seemed like the only thing that mattered.
Her hand landed on his chest. Warm. Strong. Inviting.
She splayed her fingers wider, wanting to feel more of him. Then she tipped her face up to his. She was close enough to see him well despite the darkness. His eyes locked on hers for an instantâlike two stars close up.
And then his lips claimed hers.

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.
During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.
Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.
Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

To catch a thief…or fall for one?
All Nick Norton wants is to stay on the straight and narrow…and never get caught stealing again. Then he lays eyes on her: Stella Peretti—100 percent sexy and absolutely irresistible. Especially when he sees her smooth moves lifting a two-karat diamond. Nick realizes he’s found the sparkling woman of his dreams—one so perfect for him it’s almost criminal.
The Shimmy Shimmy Bangs are master jewel thieves who are planning the heist of the century. And Shimmy leader, Stella, isn’t about to let anyone—even if he is a hunky, tatted-up studmuffin—get in her way. But when two of her girls are put out of commission, Stella realizes that Nick isn’t just a red-hot distraction. He might be the answer to her pilfering prayers.
Now, Nick and Stella are putting everything on the line for one last job. But when two thieves have this much chemistry, it’s only a matter of time before somebody’s heart gets stolen.
EXCERPT“Niiiiiiick!” came her voice, more of a growl that an actual word. “Get me out of here. My legs are going numb!”
To the bathroom I went, where I was met not only with Stella’s pinch-worthy ass in the window, but also an explosion of towels and makeup, shampoos and lotions, on every flat surface, and all over the floor. Dozens of makeup brushes poked out of an old coffee can by the sink, which was encrusted with jewels like Stella’s phone.
Stella had managed to tangle her legs up with toilet paper like the back end of a sloppily wrapped mummy, so I pulled that off her first. She’d also gotten her belt loop hooked over the lock on the window, so I unhooked that too.
But I didn’t pull her out quite yet, because her ass was just too hot to ignore. She was still in the same jeans she’d been wearing last night, and I took the chance to run my hand up the back of one thigh. I leaned down, and gave her a kiss on the small of her back. Her body went limp in the window, and she let out a moan. Once I’d had my fix, I hooked my arm underneath her hips and gave her a tug. I absolutely loved the way her skin felt next to mine, especially like this, when she was way too out of her element to feel self-conscious. The muscles of her stomach weren’t flexed, and I felt the soft curves and lines like she hadn’t let me feel them before. The narrow strip of skin where her T-shirt had ridden up made all those cliché terms make sense.
Soft as silk.
Sweet as cream.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ
BY M. Robinson
Cover Model: Stephen James
Cover Design: The Final Wrap
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ New Adult
In a world where I had no say, violence became my refuge, and nothing else mattered.
Not even my own life.
It all started the first time I heard that voice. Giving me hope for tomorrow. My first love was everything all at once.
Except, I never imagined there were secrets that needed to be shared. Lies that needed to be confessed. Truths that needed to be told.
Demons that needed to be buried.
Once I realized the depth, the longing, the sadness and sorrow in her eyes mirrored mine, it was too late. Love didn't come to me as heartbreak, it came as everything I've ever wanted. Walking away wasn't an option, but it was the only choice I had.
I finally found the price of love and it cost me...
My back hit the concrete wall with a thud.
âYou got what you wanted, so you can go now. Because I canât stand fucking looking at you any longer!â
I reached for her on pure impulse. âSkylerââ As soon as she felt my strong armâs wrap around her waist, she kneed me in the balls.
âWeâre even now, because I hate you too.â
I groaned in pain, and in her fuck-me heels, she took off running toward the exit. Breathing through the dis-comfort for a moment, I hauled ass after her. My boots pounding the wet pavement, chasing her in the pouring rain. Catching up with her outside the back of the dark building.
I gripped her arm and roughly turned her toward me, never expecting what happened next.
âNo!â she shouted bloody murder, once again shoving me as hard as she could. She didnât falter, losing her fucking shit on me. âI loved you!â She ignored the sting I knew her hand must have felt every time it connected with my face and body. Hitting me anywhere she could.
I tried blocking each and every blow, driving her further to push and hit me harder. Taking out every malicious word Iâd said to her, and years of pent-up anger with herself, on me.
âI fucking loved you!â
âCutie, calm the fuck down,â I ordered, trying to grip onto her wrists.
âFuck you!â she yelled, punching and shoving me more, the closer I came toward her. âYou donât know anything! Nothing!â
Raising her hand up to slap me across the face, I gripped onto her wrist and spun her around before she could react. She lost her footing which only made it easier for me to carry her up into my arms. Striding over to the nearest car that appeared abandoned in a secluded corner of the alley.
âStop it,â I warned, controlling her body from thrashing around. Pissing her off even more.
âYou stop it! Put me down!â
And I did, slamming her ass on the hood. Taking ahold of both her wrists with my hand and placing them above her head. I pinned her down, and still she fought with every ounce of courage she had left in her.
âFor fucks sake, stop!â
âWell then, Iâm just gonna havta fuck the fight right out of ya.â
âDonât you darââ
My lips crashed onto hers, slipping my tongue into her mouth. Demanding complete and utter control. She weakly thrashed around, and I held her tighter against my chest, kissing her fucking senseless.
Groaning against her lips, âFuckâ¦ I missed youâ¦â

Closer, the stunning conclusion to the Taint Duet from USA Today bestselling author Carmen Jenner is LIVE!
Levi Quinn has it all—money, groupies, a panty-melting smile, and a really big d*ck.
At least, he had it all. Until an angry redhead joined the Taint world tour and turned his life upside-down. Levi fell in love with her. His bandmate did too. It did not end well.
Brielle Kagawa doesn’t keep company with rock stars, but when this gifted cellist finds herself kicked out of the Orchestre de Parisan all-expenses-paid gig in the south of France seems too good to be true.
Because it is.
The man footing the bill might be a disorderly drunk, but he has an offer she can’t refuse—stay in his chateau and play for the month. No strings attached.
The truth about rock stars is that they’re awfully good players, but Levi isn’t the only one who knows how to master a set of strings.
She doesn’t have a heart to break.
