    Synopsis

    Erotic Historical Romance ~
    Courtesan/Non-virginal Heroine
    Poised to become Mayfair’s
    most expensive and exclusive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise
    inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her ducal
    father and determined to attain everything that life has denied her due to an
    accident of birth, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.
    Adrian Sutherland, the Earl
    of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a heartless, predatory courtesan. He
    has no time or patience for such exotic, expensive ladybirds. He’s far too busy
    restoring his family’s wealth and reputation whilst doing what he can to
    protect his friends from the clutches of all the scheming courtesans of London.
    Then a moment of compassion
    turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two strong-willed,
    fiercely proud people are compelled to indulge in a brief affair. Each is
    convinced that they can satisfy their craving for the other without emotional
    risk.
    But neither realizes that a
    little dalliance can be a dangerous thing.

    erotic historical romance and it contains frank sexual language and period
    appropriate sexual slang, frequent sexual scenes and descriptions and general
    bedchamber naughtiness. The characters discuss abuse issues from their

    Code of Honor (Code #2) by J.R. Bryce‏

    Title: Code of Honor
    Series: Code #2
    Author: J.R. Bryce
    Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance/Former Military
    Published: November 30, 2015
    Mark Williams is a former Marine who needs a temporary, just for show bodyguard simply to ease his father’s mind. He hires Julie Jameson, a beautiful young woman who looks nothing like a bodyguard even though her resume indicates she’s tough as nails. She’s the perfect candidate. but he’s got a few demands of his own. First on that list: he can take his own damn bullets.

    Julie doesn’t like being told she was hired because of her looks, or that she isn’t allowed to do her job. She is not just an overpriced escort with a gun, she’s good at what she does. Except as things heat up and it becomes obvious to both of them that the threat is real, Mark treats her more like part of the team despite his obvious desire to protect her. And he never treats her as an escort, despite the fact that she really starts regretting that particular clause in the contract.

    Together they face explosions, flying bullets, injuries and judgement, all the while dealing with a safehouse full of her brothers, multiple government agencies trying to work together, old friends and older secrets.

    The only thing either of them is sure about is that if they both survive, they aren’t letting go. All they have to do is make sure that happens.

    JR Bryce (that’s me) has been writing since I could read, with varying levels of success.

    Some of those early stories were not the bestsellers I hoped for at age six,

    but I’ve gotten better over time. Really. I promise.

    I live in my office corner with a man-eating Chihuahua draped across my lap, my real live Evil Muse mind-controlling me via electronic communication, and writing like a crazy person while my all-too-precocious spawnlings plot each other’s murders and my husband runs away in a vain attempt to save his sanity. Fortunately, the beautiful Oregon Coast has lots of things to distract him so I can get the words on paper.

    Stars In Her Eyes by Kennedy Kelly

    Title: Stars In Her Eyes 
    Author : Kennedy Kelly 
    Genre : Romance

    Red carpet and one look was all it took to ignite the spark between Sachi Waters and mega-star Drayke Sloan. With a proposition that is typically left in the movies, the two find themselves consuming each other in a whirl wind weekend. 
    But when Sunday night rolls around, Sachi finds she didn’t just give Drayke her body, but her heart, too. He promised to stay in touch. But after months without a word, she gave up hope. 
    Until life threw them together again. The spotlight, the fans, their past all working together to keep these two apart. Can their love over come it all? 
    This book has mature content and is only suitable for those 18 and over.
    I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO where I grew up with four older brothers. I now reside in Overland Park, Kansas. I’d always loved to write as a child. My teachers would call home not because I was in trouble but because I had a creative imagination and they wanted my parents to know about the crazy stories I was writing. I’ve always been a hard worker. I started working with my family’s company when I was 15 and still haven’t stopped. I am a wife, mother of two, hold down a full time job and am now trying to be a indie author. I have a passion for reading and before I started writing I could be found with a Kindle in my hand morning, noon and night. I’m a picky reader so it’s hard to please me but I feel like I have a keen eye for a good book.
    I hope you all will join me on my new journey as I release my first book Fearless Love. It can be very scary but with my passion for the written word I hope it will be well worth it.

    Excerpt

    I saw his arm raised from the corner of my eye. I leaned forward to get out of the way of his flailing hand. I glanced back at him.
    “Sorry,” he mumbled. I was rendered mute.
    First thing I saw was his shirt riding up over his hips, revealing his perfectly toned skin. I leaned forward and craned my neck down, trying to catch a glimpse of his abs, when a low rumble emitted from his mouth, making me whip fully around. My face lit up on fire.
    “You like what you see, Sunshine?” His voice took me off guard. The low rumble sounded like he had just woken up from a night of heavy sleeping. It was sexy and daring and dark.
    “Not really,” I said, trying to mask my instant attraction to him. His eyes captured me when I looked up at him. They were deep gray, almost like a storm cloud rolling with the wind. His light brownish-blond hair complimented his tanned skin, making his appearance even more appealing.
    At the tip of his hoodie, black lines curved along his collar bone, hinting at a larger tattoo somewhere beneath his shirt. I tried to focus elsewhere, but this guy was fucking perfection. His thick bottom lip, his nose that was a little crooked at the bridge. He had a fucking dimple! 
    “Luke,” he said. He smirked, showing off his dimple as if daring me to lick it. Strangely enough, he had on khaki pants, tailored so well they looked professional. The khaki and hoodie combo was bizarre, and the difference in top and bottom was not lost on me.
    “Excuse me?” I asked back, remembering that he spoke, the fog dissipating, replaced with confusion. 
    “My name is Luke.” His voice was light, not condescending or rude like I would’ve thought it to be. I frowned, glared, and then turned around in my seat without uttering a single word. He was being nice?

    What Others Are Saying About Taylor Lavati

    “One for readers at the older end of the ‘young adult’ spectrum, The Thousand Year Curse is clearly the work of a gifted young writer. The plot and the basic premise have already been spelled out by other reviewers but what struck me most about the book was the deft and surprisingly mature touch of the author.” Jay G

    “I fell in love with Taylor’s writing when I read the first book in her Curse Books. When I opened this book I wasn’t positive what would be waiting on the other side for me, but I was certain it would be a reading adventure. Taylor didn’t disappoint.” Bestselling author Jesse Kimmel-Freeman
