One damn kiss.
A kiss that not only destroyed our future but ended my ability to believe, to trust, to love.
That kiss was supposed to be the start of our forever. Instead, it marked the beginning of our end.
He was my best friend. We should have known better.
Three years kept us apart. Now, Ryan’s coming home. I’m older, wiser, and no longer the starry-eyed girl who followed his every command. Yet an invisible rope continues to tug at us like no time has passed at all.
He almost destroyed me last time. I won’t give him a chance to do it again.
I can’t. I won’t. Will I?

Set in Victorian England, this erotic BDSM novel features a courtship between a young woman and a dashing rake.
Gabriel, Earl of Cranborne, is in need of a wife--preferably a sweet, submissive, well-trained wife who could run his household during the day and obey him in the bedroom at night. When he meets Miss Vivian Stafford at a friend's wedding, he finds himself drawn in by the exact traits he was looking for in his own wife and immediately moves to make her his own. Once the betrothal papers are signed, he arranges for her to attend Mrs. Cunningham's Finishing School. This very special school will prepare her to be the wife of an Earl . . . and also prepare for her the very specific demands and discipline she'll receive from her new husband at night.

Title: Man Seeking Woman
Author: Leah Holt
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2019
Man seeking woman; the job description was vague, but money was all I really needed.
On the verge of losing everything, I decided to take a chance and respond to the ad.
Turned out the man on the other end of the phone was August Burke, New York City's hottest bachelor.
Tall, muscular, dripping in sex appeal, his voice made your thighs tremble and your heart race. Most women would kill for one night with this man.
Except, what he wanted from me was way more than any man should ever ask for, and I'm not that desperate.
But, he won't take no for an answer. He decided he wanted something, and that something was me.
His offer could fix all my problems, it could erase the weight I'm carrying on my shoulders.
Only, I'm not the type of girl who will do anything for money...
Growing up in a small town, Leah Holt's imagination was able to run wild. She loves to write romance that is full of broken heroes you can't help but fall in love with. Having three children of her own, life is filled with far too many cartoons and not enough bad boys. Writing has become an outlet for her to let out all of the dirty, forbidden thoughts inside her head. When she's not typing to the point her fingers hurt, you can find her downing coffee and trying to keep track of reality. Which is never easy when she'd rather have her nose in a book or creating stories that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

When Maddox crashes back into Cole Matthews' life, he wants to fight back. He wants to hate her. But the crisis is too strong to ignore, and soon the two former lovers find themselves working side-by-side in a breakneck race to stop a world-class killer with a secret that could end everything.

3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
HOLY WILD RIDE! Every Last Breath might be Juno Rushdan's first step into romantic suspense but it did not show at all. This spy games romance was dangerous and never took its foot off the gas. The opening alone gave me the big eyes and had me questioning exactly what I had gotten myself into.
There was something about Maddox that made me root for her. Maybe it was her being a woman in a mans world. Maybe it was the way she wore her bravery on her sleeve. Maybe it was her broken heart that still beat for Cole. And when it turns out Cole isn't dead, just hiding in plain sight, and very much a vital part of stopping a disaster, it was Maddox who was called upon to get his help.
These two had a lot of issues to work through. The fallout of their relationship being the biggest one (besides Cole being alive). With tensions high and the threat of catastrophe looming, they had to put their feelings on the back burner to get the job done. Except it wasn't that easy for the old lovers. Because despite the betrayal, lies and deception, that flame still burned bright. And when Maddox is put in the cross hairs of a madman, it was Cole who couldn't keep a level head.
I found the mystery and danger of Every Last Breath spot on. The romance, however, was a bit lacking. It was obvious they cared for each other, even if a lot of it was animosity at first. I just wanted to feel more of the emotional connection between Maddox and Cole because their sexual chemistry was off the charts.
I will say that Juno Rushdan did a good job of setting up this series. The cast of characters that surround Maddox were pretty great and only added to the depth of the story. And that ending- holy smokes! I have my guess, but honestly no clue and am looking forward to see that part of the story continue in the series.

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.
Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.
The first female friend I ever had.
And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.
When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.
The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.
She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.
She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.
What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.
She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.
*International Player is a complete standalone contemporary romance
Excerpt:In, two, three, out, two. Shit. I tried again. In, two, three, out, two, three. It wasn’t helping. My heart was hammering against my chest, my palms were sweaty, and images of hundreds and hundreds of faces staring at me flashed into my head.
I ignored the knock on my office door. I was too concerned about what was happening to me. Was it possible to have a heart attack at twenty-eight?
“Truly,” a familiar, male voice called.
I couldn’t look up. Couldn’t even open my eyes.
Warm hands covered my knees and body heat radiated in front of me.
“Are you okay? Take a breath.” What was Noah doing here?
I nodded, still counting my breath. As if he was familiar with the technique, he began counting along with me. “Out, two, three. In, two, three. Out, two, three.”
His voice was calming. The counting hadn’t worked when I’d done it alone, but hearing him counting too helped me settle into a rhythm.
Eventually, his hands slid from my knees, and I sat up and opened my eyes, right into his.
“Are you okay?” he asked, his brow
I was such an idiot. A mess. And this was why Noah and I had only ever been friends. He was used to seeing me in no makeup with a smear of kung pao chicken on my face. And now I was panicking about a meeting that he would think nothing of. Yes, Noah only ever saw me at my absolute worst.
“What are you doing here?” I asked. I didn’t want him to see me like this.
“Do you want some water?” He stood and poured me a glass of sparkling water from the bottle on my desk.
“Thanks.” I took a sip and sat back in my chair.
“I came to talk to you. Apologize if I seemed harsh last night. I’m sorry if I made this worse, Truly.”
I cleared my throat. “I’m fine. Just a little . . .” I watched as he slid into the chair opposite my desk, his long legs unfurling in front of him. “I just have a lot to do.”
He nodded, steepling his fingers. “And I’m here to help.”

Taming the Bad Boy
“The shirt sailed toward the table. I dreaded it touching the alcohol that had spilled on the wood. Real silk wouldn’t survive it. So I stood and caught it in mid-air. I was rewarded with a broad wink. I pulled the shirt to my chest, and I couldn’t help noticing the heady scent that rose from it. Nari glared at me. After sending a brief apology to the dry cleaner who was going to have to fix it, I balled the shirt up and pushed it deep into my lap.
Lyrics got suggestive. The tight ribbed black tank Rafe was wearing close to his skin, came off as well. I didn’t try to grab for it this time. I was already in for a stiff lecture.
Bumping and grinding, Rafe was butt down on the platform undulating to the beat, the tight leather pants obscuring nothing. The names of movie and sports stars blasted from the speakers. The top two buttons of his pants came undone. Hollywood’s female icons thumped with the bass. The zipper came down.
I knew what was coming. How could I not? I couldn’t look away. I could look all day. Looking was okay. Like the black and white video of the song, lights pulsed, throwing the club into black and white relief.
A quick black out, and the pants were gone. I must have missed the shoes and socks, because Rafe was gyrating on the platform almost as naked as the day he was born, save for some black boxer briefs shot through with silver threads.
Those threads were only on the front center, and back of the shorts, highlighting what was underneath. Before I knew it, he was letting his body go with the flow. It was a nice flow. His skin was golden, and bathed in a sheen of sweat. The lights cast blue, red, and ended in gold on him. Silence. A single beat. And it went dark again.
I didn’t care if Nari thought I was crazy. I clapped and hooted as loudly as his friends and those around me. The lights and music started again, but Rafe was gone.”
Can this skeptical player let down his guard long enough to let love into his life, or is this forbidden romance a train wreck in the making?

It’s a truth he learned early in life. A truth he carried with him into adulthood. He broke his golden rule one time, but Myndi trampled all over his heart, cementing his belief that love is a lie and not worth the effort.
Now he’s returned to his cynical views and promiscuous lifestyle, racking up more notches on his bedpost than he can count.
Until Summer Petersen comes crashing into his world, threatening to knock down his walls with her tempting body and sunny, sweet personality.
Summer is determined to lose her V-card before she starts freshman year of college, and the hot, older guy with the cute dimples, dazzling smile, and rippling biceps is just the man for the job. Ryan doesn’t take much persuading, and he rocks her world, giving her a night to remember.
When they walk away, there’s an unspoken agreement it was a one-time thing. Ryan doesn’t do feelings, and Summer doesn’t want to be tied down at eighteen.

Ryan can’t believe he slept with Austin’s baby sister, and if he finds out, he’ll literally kill him. Keeping their hook up a secret is nonnegotiable.
