With her best friend
happily married and now pregnant, Sam Matthews should be overjoyed. Instead, she

can only see what is missing in her life. Pushing her emotions aside, she retreats to a

piece of her past that she’s kept hidden, something that even her best friend knows

nothing about.

Taking a step into her
future, Sam moves to North Carolina where she once again encounters Mark Robertson.

He is persistent and hard to resist, and little by little, he uses his charms to break

through Sam’s walls.

As Sam starts to open
her heart to Mark, she convinces herself that the past should stay in the past. But when

her past creeps into the present, her secrets could cost her every hope and happiness in

her future.

Promise Me is the third book in the Trust Series.​



I received a couple of catcalls as my body moved to the music. I knew the best thing was to always ignore them as I let the music take me over. My hips swayed, and my hands went up in the air. The third song started playing, and a light gleam of sweat coated my skin. Some unwanted bodies had tried to get close to me, but I knew how to keep my distance from strangers without losing my rhythm. It was freeing. I was lost in the beat when familiar hands came around my front. I knew it was Mark.

His mouth came to my ear. “Hey. Wanna dance?”

Mark pulled me to him. Our bodies joined, and we began moving together. His head came down and kissed the exposed part of my neck, and I tilted to the side to give him full access. The crowd had thickened and was pressing in on us. The pulse of the music drove us. We moved until we were both a hot mess, and neither one of us had said a word through multiple songs of the most hip-grinding, dirty dancing I had ever done.

After nibbling on my earlobe, Mark said, “Let’s say bye to the boys, and then I’m taking you home. I think all these assholes got the picture of whose bed you belong in.”

Turning to face him, I kissed him hard as his hands stroked my back. His leg went between my legs, and we started moving again. Our hot tongues danced with each as our bodies moved as one. We were both sweaty and hot. We were about to be a sexual explosion out here if we didn’t leave soon.

Pulling back barely, our lips still touching, I responded, “Now, all the girls who were hanging around, hoping for a shot with you, know who you’re taking to bed tonight.”

He grabbed my ass, bringing me closer to him, and it only increased my sexual need for him.

Mark bit my lip and then said, “I like you a little jealous. Let’s go before I lose my remaining bit of self-control.”

About Love, Chocolate and Beer by Violet Duke:


"A new must-read series from Violet Duke." --

NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Kathleen Brooks

Romance has met its most unlikely match-up...

Luke Bradford is a chocolatier on a mission. After moving his chocolate shop, and newly

single life, to the quirky town of Cactus Creek, Luke wants nothing more than to devote

all his energy into making his business a success--by taking the romance market by

storm. But his grand plans get thrown for a loop when he locks horns with the feisty beer-
brewing beauty next door who calls his 'romantic idealism' a load of fairytale bull. Soon,

driving the woman sparking nuts becomes another wickedly fun priority he simply can't

get enough of.

In his defense, she's addictively easy to incite...and plain impossible to resist.

Beloved local brewmaster Dani Dobson is beyond riled up. It's bad enough the new shop

owner in town comes locked and loaded with both a distractingly rugged charm and sexy

flashing dimples, but the whole only-in-the-movies variety of romance he's selling--the

kind her world has been crushed by before--is really doing a number on her allergy to

unrealistic clich├ęs. What's worse, he's created an annoyingly clever ad campaign that

dubs 'beer joints' like hers as the "cave where romance goes to hibernate." The nerve of

that man.

Combustible chemistry or not, damn it, this means war. The stakes...very likely, her


About Love, Tussles and Takedowns

He's a better fighter

A fighter to the core, Hudson Reyes has collected enough battle scars now to last several

lifetimes. But after his combat injuries retire him from the life he wasn't ready to give up,

Hudson finds himself spending the carbon copy days of his new career as a Hollywood

fight scene and weapons specialist just doing what he knows best: surviving. Until he

meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again. With wounds as deep as

his own, she's a scrappy little thing--an angel-faced paradox that comes as a package deal

with an offbeat town of admirably protective, but downright nosy folks.

And a wicked roundhouse kick that's become intimately familiar with his head.

...but she has all the weapons.

An antique arms authenticator by day and a self-defense instructor by night, Liana Lin

has made a living turning the unthinkable demons of her past into the passions that fuel,

and fill, her life. So when the unjustly handsome man she's been unable to stop thinking

about literally takes her to the mat with martial arts styles unlike anything she's ever seen-

-pinning her with a molten hot stare that melts her like a marshmallow trapped between

a graham cracker and a chocolate square--Lia flips into no-holds-barred fight mode.

Because if one man could find a way to disarm her carefully-built defenses, it'd be him.

Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out...

One True Thing

Lynne Jaymes

Release Date: 
May 29, 2014



Can one true thing save a love built on lies?

“That was all before…” Jenna waves her hand

in the air, but we both know what she means. Before I touched her in the most

intimate places. Before I felt her shudder under my tongue. Before she tasted the

salt on my skin. Before I promised a lot more than I could deliver.

Ty Branch has wanted one thing his entire life—

to play professional baseball. When he gets a chance to move from San Francisco

to play at Texas powerhouse Garvin State University, he's willing to do whatever it

takes to make his dream come true, even if that means hiding his past. But when he

meets dance major Jenna Taylor, the chemistry is so strong his single-minded quest

begins to weaken. As he gets to know her quirky, small-town family, he falls more


in love, but becomes even more sure he can never

tell her the truth about his family. When a surprise visitor blows his past wide-open,

Ty is forced to come to terms with his secrets. But is the damage already done with

Jenna or can he find a way to sacrifice everything he's worked for in order to win

back the heart of a once-in-a-lifetime love?

“I’m glad it was you at the bar tonight Ty,” Jenna

says, looking up at me.

I glance down at the worn, grey carpet. “I’m

glad it was you too. I’ve wanted to talk to you all year.” What am I doing here? I

should tell her goodnight and walk away instead of standing here sounding like a

teenager at the prom.

“Really?” She looks like she’s trying decide if

that’s just a line. “Why didn’t you?”

I look back down and Jenna bites her bottom

lip just slightly in a way that’s both innocent and undeniably sexy.

“I just…” I can’t look at her anymore, so I

pull my eyes away and stare down the empty hallway. Why haven’t I spoken to

her in almost seven months? Because I’ve spent that time becoming someone new

and I can’t wreck all of that hard work. Because I’d have to tell her about all of the

things that I’ve kept hidden from everyone if we got involved. Because I’d have to be

honest with her—and right now I can’t be honest with anyone. “It’s complicated.”</ span>

“Oh,” she says vaguely and I know she doesn’t

understand. How could she? Jenna puts the key in her door. “Do you want to come in

for a minute? I’ve got a couple of beers in the fridge.”

I glance at my own front door down the hall.

The one I should be walking through right about now. “I should go…”

There’s no denying the disappointment in her

eyes when she looks at me and it’s painful to know what I could have if I just take

that one step forward.

“Okay,” Jenna says. She stands up on tiptoes

and bends toward me, her lips grazing my cheek. My head is filled with the soft,

powdery scent of her mixed with something deeper and sexier. “Thanks for the

ride.” She lifts one finger and draws it down my neck slowly and that’s all it takes for

me to lose every ounce of my resolve.

Before I can think about what I’m doing, I

bend down and kiss her so hard that I feel the breath leave my body as I press her

up against the door and lace her fingers through my own. I’m starting to get lost in

the kiss when the reality of what I’m doing hits me.

“I’m sorry,” I say, taking a step back from her.

The taste of her is still on my lips and I want more, so much more, but I can’t. It’s not


“Don’t be,” she says, grabbing my hand and

pulling me closer.

But I resist, glancing away because I know if

I look into her eyes I’ll lose every ounce of willpower I’m trying to summon. I can’t

believe I’m about to undo everything I’ve put together these past few months. But

Jenna is right here in front of me and she deserves to know the truth. “Listen…there

are some things you don’t know about me…”

She looks into my eyes and I’m caught. “An

STD?” she says boldly.

I wince. “No.”

“A felony? A girlfriend? A baby?”

I can’t help but laugh. In light of her guesses,

maybe it’s not such a big deal. “No. Nothing like that.”

She grabs both of my hands and pulls me to

her and every shred of resolve melts away. “Then I don’t care.”

Wicked Innocence
Publication Date: June 27, 2014


Don’t let my petite and innocent appearance fool you, because I’m one person you don’t want to cross. I’m Micah, the youngest member of Resurrection…If only they knew how young. My fake ID says I’m twenty-one.
And I will be…in four years. What can I say? I blossomed early. Home sucked, so I left, determined to do something with my life. Landing the gig as lead vocalist in the band was a dream come true. I’ve worked hard to make something of myself and nothing is going to ruin that for me. Then He showed up. He’s hot as hell and so into me. But he’s also twenty-five. I don’t want to lie to him, but if the truth comes out I’ll lose everything, including him.  
About the Author: Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).
When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.




Both have what she wants … but only one

has what she needs.

Working with professional athletes and

helping them recover from their injuries has always been Kate Townsend’s dream,

but after an accident left her scarred and heartbroken years ago she refuses to

let what happened in her past happen again. Staying focused is the key, as well

as not letting her feelings interfere with her job … no matter the

circumstances. All of that is easier said than done when not only one, but two

men crave her healing touch, igniting every single desire she’s denied herself

for so long.

Cooper Davis, NFL’s star quarterback

and most eligible bachelor, packs up and leaves his home to move across the

states to the East Coast after an injury results in the embarrassing trade to

another team. Bitter from the pain, he deals with his problems through drugs

and alcohol—almost ruining his football career—until he meets the one woman who

makes him want to feel; the same

woman who refuses to give up on him no matter how many times he screws up. He

has to have her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Especially

now that someone else threatens to take her away.

Motocross champion and local bad boy

Luke Collins never takes no for an answer. For the past four months he’s used

his charms to get what he wants, and now he’s so close to getting the girl of

his dreams … if she’ll give in just once. One time is all he needs, and he’s

never been known to fail, but he’s also never had to fight for a woman’s

affections. Only one man will win their way into Kate’s heart, but which one

will intercept the other and take what they want? Which one will she choose?

We pulled into the parking lot of the practice field and I shut off my car, the
tension in the air crackling like fire. When I turned to look at her, it was
like her stormy gray gaze could see right through me. There were a shit ton of
things I wanted, but nothing as much as leaning forward to kiss those lips of hers.

With her breaths coming fast and low, she licked her dry lips and shook her head.

“Cooper, we can’t.”

Bending over the center console, I glanced down at her lips and murmured low, “Yes we
can, Kate, and I’m going to make sure we do.”
