For Nicky by A.D. Ellis

Due out April 30, 2014

Elizabeth Decker views herself as shy,

totally average, and pretty much insignificant. She’s nothing special, at least

not compared to her little sister, Audrey. Elizabeth is content with her plain

and lonely future; she’s too insecure to contemplate a relationship thanks to

her sister. Audrey is a bombshell and uses this to get what she wants. She’s a

girl who will stop at nothing to control anyone and everything around her. She

craves power and doesn’t care if she has to hurt Elizabeth to get it.

Nathaniel Morgan has spent his

whole life fighting for his twin brother, Nicholas. Somewhere along the way, he

lost himself. Now he’s just getting by. He’s devoted to his family, but

emotionally detached from the women he burns through like wildfire. He has no

plans of getting into something as complicated and committed as a


Nicholas Morgan has placed the new

librarian, Miss Elizabeth, on a pedestal and is begging her to meet his twin brother,

Nathaniel. Elizabeth and Nathaniel agree to meet, for Nicky. Both are caught

off-guard when unexpected sparks fly between them. This was not in their plans.

Will Nathaniel and Elizabeth be able to escape a past that still plagues them?

Or, will the past, suspicions, and insecurities come between them one too many

What are people saying
about the book so far??

A.D Ellis was born and raised in a small farming town in

southern Indiana. An avid reader from the time she learned to read, A.D. could

often be found curled up somewhere with her nose in a book. Most of her friends

were not such book enthusiasts which earned her a few snickers when she was

constantly reading.

A.D. had always dreamed of being a teacher. She earned her

degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University in 1999 and her

Master’s Degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003. A.D. has been teaching in the

inner city of Indianapolis for 15 years. While she’s taught several different

grades, fourth grade is her favorite. They are learning independence by 4th

grade, but most haven’t learned the attitude yet. A.D. loves teaching

fractions, variables, probability, and graphing in Math. She loves almost all

aspects of English Language Arts. Figurative language, theme, making

predictions, drawing conclusions, inference, context clues, making writing come

to life, A.D. loves it all! Her students may not be in agreement with that


A.D. met her husband in college in 1996 and they married in

June of 2000. A.D. lives in a south side suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana with

her husband and two school-aged children. When she’s not reading or writing

with music blaring, she can be found shopping at thrift stores, reading to her

children, and running.

A.D. had always pondered the idea of writing a book, but

until recently it was a far off dream. In today’s age of independently

published authors, A.D. decided to take a chance and try her hand at writing.

She has learned so much during this journey and is having a world of fun with

"I have a proposition for you." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. It's been years since Kacey's seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they're engaged for her sake—so be it.

But Kacey wasn't counting on Jake's older brother Travis still being there. She calls him "Satan" for a reason: she's never forgotten the way he teased and taunted her. Yet when they meet again, Travis's gorgeous smile is a direct hit to her heart . . . and Kacey's more confused than ever. As the days pass, only one thing starts to become alarmingly clear-she never should have accepted Jake's deal . . .

“Kace!” Travis strolled into the room, absolutely shirtless and wearing nothing but pajama pants. Was her tongue hanging out of her mouth? Oh God, she was beginning to sweat.

Geez, at least turn the air on in this place.

Averting her eyes, she managed an awkward laugh. “What’s up?”

“Movie night.” He threw a pillow at her and went to the DVDs.

“Um, is it naked movie night? I’m not sure I got that memo.”

She looked him up and down when he turned around.

“I’m sorry. Does my masculinity frighten your prudish nature?”

She snorted. “Please. I just don’t want to get last night’s skank on me. I hear diseases travel through too much skin contact.”

He rolled his eyes. “I’ll put on a shirt if you take off yours.”

How tempting that was . . . “Take off my shirt? So you can finally see my boobs? Oh

gosh, Travis. Let me think. Give you the fantasy you’ve been dreaming of for years or keep my pride? Yeah, I think I’ll keep my pride.”

He shrugged. “Suit yourself, but it really isn’t a slumber party if you’re not naked.”

“What the hell kind of slumber parties were you subjected to as a child?” Kacey asked.

Travis grinned shamelessly. “Only the good ones. Now seriously, go change into sweats. I’ll wait.”

“Fine.” She hopped off, her heart beating erratically out of her chest. This witty banter had to stop. For crying out loud, they were adults! Not teenagers! She grabbed some short Victoria’s Secret shorts and a black tank and put on her slippers to make it look less . . . seductive. Not that she was seducing him. Her stupid skin betrayed her in the mirror as it turned a very nice crimson color.

She really needed to start dating more.

Taking the stairs two at a time, she went back down to the living room and saw Travis opening a bottle of wine; thankfully he had put a shirt on. She wasn’t sure she could handle any more of his glistening muscles that evening. “Thought you could use this, even though it’s not good for the baby.” He winked.

“I would drink that whole bottle if I knew it wouldn’t get me completely drunk. I miss wine.”

“Um, you haven’t had it for one night, and you miss it?”

“Clearly, you underestimate my relationship with wine and what I do on the weekends when I’m by myself reading.”

“You wild thing, you.” Travis nudged her and filled her glass to the brim. He should be sainted, immediately.

Their fingers brushed slightly as he handed the wine over. His eyes flickered to her shorts, and he cleared his throat. “Those are nice.”

“Thanks.” She inwardly smiled.

“Are they shorts or underwear?”

Was he being serious? “Shorts, you ass. Now, what movie are we watching?”


“Not in the mood, not near enough wine in my system for me to embark on such a strenuous activity.”

“Ah, pregnancy brain, it does it to ya; it really does.” Travis got up and turned off the lights, then pressed Play. “I thought you might want to watch a horror movie.”

“Horror movie?”

A cartoon popped up on the screen. Kacey blinked as the music came on, then nearly fell out of her seat. “Oh my gosh, we can’t watch this, Travis. I can’t watch this. It’s been forever

and . . .”

“Conquer your fears, Kace.”

Kacey scooted a little closer to him, just in case some of the cartoons did in fact decide to pop out and devour her.

He pressed Pause and laughed. “Kace, really? I thought you’d be over this fear by now.”

“It’s not a fear.” Kacey drank her wine faster. “It’s a scary movie!”

“It’s Alice in Wonderland.”

Kacey shook her head a few times and drank some more wine.

“Damn that Cheshire cat.”

Travis held up his wine. “To conquering old fears?”

Something shifted between them then. His eyes, though it was dark, seemed to be hiding something, as if he were talking about more than her stupid phobia. She leaned in, now completely relaxed from downing half her wine already, and whispered, “To conquering old fears.”

Always You

Missy Johnson

Student Teacher Romance

Release Date:
December 19, 2013



I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the
world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved. 

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…


Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school?

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem?

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.

Buy the Book for only 99¢

I laughed. “Trust me, they do. I’m the niece of the headmistress and I don’t

come from a family of big money. Add to that all the ‘special’ attention I used

to get from teachers who were just trying to look out for me, and what’s to

not like?” I joked. I shrugged. “Not that I care. With the exception of Kass,

I’d prefer not to know any of my peers. I focus on my schoolwork and grades.

That’s it. Two more months and I’m free. Less than two months. Six weeks.

Thank God for extra credit and early graduation.”

He was silent for a moment. “Anyone who chooses not to get to know you is

missing out. Not you. You’re unlike anyone I’ve met.” He looked up and met

my gaze; those incredible blue eyes were staring right into my soul. It gave me

goose bumps. This guy made me feel like I wanted to live. Really live, not just go

through the motions of day to day life.

Release Date: 
May 8, 2014


My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.
Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made
me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play. 

He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's
awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for
thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it. &
I'm in love with her.

Late Call by Emma Hart 
(Call #1)
Publication date:  
May 1st 2014
 Adult, Erotica, Romance

She’s a high class call girl. He’s taking over his father’s business.
Seven years ago, they fell in love in Paris.

They walked away at the end of the summer, never imagining they’d meet again.
Now he’s her client.
We fell in love the way you jump from a cliff. Hard and fast with a reckless sense of abandon. The six weeks we spent together changed my life, but at seventeen, I was naive. I was a dreamer. A believer.

Now I’m twenty-four and cynical. I don’t believe in love. There’s no place for such emotions as a high class escort. The only things I’m allowed to feel are physical – and that’s why it’s so damn hard when the client of a last minute job turns out to be the man I left in France seven years ago. When he buys me for six weeks at triple my rate, my agent makes it clear I have no choice but to take the job despite our previous relationship. And my heart makes it very clear I have to stay firmly on top of the cliff this time.

Because for six weeks, I once again belong to Aaron Stone.

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies - usually wine - and writes books.
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
