Coming Soon . . . Two Dukes & A Lady by Lorna James

Lady Lily

Coming August 7th From Entangled Publishing . . . 

Two Dukes & A Lady

Charles Ashdown, Duke of Densmore and his closest friend William Kenwood, Duke of Tennison vowed to never settle down. The rest of the ton just assumed that the wild rakehells loved gambling and womanizing too much to ever be ensnared by a debutante.  The truth was that all of the individual womanizing was fun, but more importantly, they preferred to indulge in the forbidden passion of sharing a woman. Certainly no decent wife would ever allow the debauchery they enjoyed to continue. But the only woman they’d ever loved — the one that got away — has suddenly returned to them.

Lily Drew’s husband died under suspicious circumstances and she had returned to England before those circumstances could ruin her reputation.  But the fear doesn’t go away and she only finds peace while spending time with her girlhood crushes, Charles and William.  They haven’t changed a bit, still unapologetically crass and self-centered, but she loves them both anyway.  She would have married one of them if she could have chosen between the two of them and or either one of them had ever asked.  But in the end, the decision had been taken out of her hands when her father had married her off to a wealthy American.

However, when she finds her dead husband has left behind more debts than she has ways of paying, she has no other solution than to remarry.  Tossing a coin, she proposes to one of them: Charles.  While she was prepared for his refusal, Lily was not prepared for the terms of his acceptance.  She was prepared to be a wife to one of the hellions, but wife to the other one behind closed doors as well…

FREE: Daring the Pilot by Jeannie Moon

jeannie

Keely Andersen hasn’t visited her hometown more than a handful of times in the last ten years, but when her doctoral research sends her back to Marietta for the immediate future, she can’t wait to reconnect with the community and the mountains she missed so much. Of course, nothing goes as planned, and Keely’s truck breaks down a few miles outside of town. When help arrives, she finds herself face to face with her brother’s best friend – the guy she used to call big, bad and gorgeous – Jonah Clark.

Still settling back into Marietta after a harrowing stint as an army helicopter pilot, Jonah Clark plans to spend a few days hiking the local mountains to prepare for his job as a pilot for Crawford County’s Search and Rescue team. When he stops to help a stranded driver, Jonah is shocked to find his best friend’s younger sister is the one behind the wheel. Only now, instead of the geeky teen he remembered, Keely is all grown up with curves he can’t resist.

Though the sparks of attraction ignite immediately, they’re hesitant to act because of their shared past. But when a project dear to their hearts is threatened, and a boy is lost on Copper Mountain, Keely and Jonah drop everything to fight for what matters, including each other.

Book two in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling The Wedding Pact series.

Divorce attorney Blair Hansen is convinced that marriage should be based on practicality, not passion. But as her own wedding approaches, she finds herself remembering her law school boyfriend, the only man she’s ever loved, and regretting what might have been. Then a twist of fate lands Garrett back in her life, and the man who loomed large in her past is suddenly casting a shadow over her wedding, making her question everything. To complicate matters further, the job she loves is in peril, and she can feel the ‘perfect’ life she’s fashioned for herself start to crumble under her feet. Could everything she’s believed about life and love be wrong?

Garrett Lowry is a divorce attorney who’s ready to settle down. The problem is that he can’t find a woman who suits him nearly as well as the one he loved and lost. He broke her heart by playing the field after their break up—something he’s always regretted. But after months of pining for Blair, Garrett stumbles across her in a freak coincidence—and then destiny keeps throwing them together, the coincidences becoming ever more unlikely. He’s convinced it’s a sign they should give their love a second chance, but Blair is engaged to another man—a man who is absolutely wrong for her.

Can Garrett convince Blair that a player once isn’t a player forever, and that happy endings aren’t just for dreamers?

When two young Amish men find love, will they risk losing everything?

In a world where every detail of life—down to the width of a hat brim—is dictated by God and the all-powerful rules of the community, two men dare to imagine a different way. At 18, Isaac Byler knows little outside the strict Amish settlement of Zebulon, Minnesota, where there is no rumspringa for exploration beyond the boundaries of their insular world. Isaac knows he’ll have to officially join the church and find a wife before too long, but he yearns for something else—something he can’t name.

Dark tragedy has left carpenter David Lantz alone to support his mother and sisters, and he can’t put off joining the church any longer. But when he takes on Isaac as an apprentice, their attraction grows amid the sweat and sawdust. David shares his sinful secrets, and he and Isaac struggle to reconcile their shocking desires with their commitment to faith, family and community.

Now that they’ve found each other, are they willing to lose it all?

This gay romance from Keira Andrews is the first book in a series of forbidden Amish love. It contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and two young men fighting for their happily ever after.

Book of the Day: The Taste of Broken by Lucy Torres

TTOB_Cover

Imagine going to bed tonight, not knowing the moment you close your eyes will be the last time you feel whole and healthy- ever again.

The Taste of Broken explores the painful question of whether a normal life is possible amidst the chaos of an unsuspecting and unknown illness. From the initial shock of injury, to the bittersweet discovery of romance, to the rupture of it all, this poetic journey travels through the psyche of a young woman in search of a new sense of normalcy.

The Taste of Broken is an autobiographical story about love- the love one receives in the wake of loss, but also the love one finds upon recovery: the love of life.

Hide

Excerpt:

What I want to pass on to you, should I not have children

The unseen symmetry in existence.

The shape of life may seem uneven, rutted;

All things come to a balance, however late

equilibrium settles into the cartilage of time.

My memories of what true love tastes like;

and the tartness of heartache’s dejection-

As a reminder that everything is fragile and fresh

and intricately beautiful in its transiency.

My words- the many millions of them carved

into varied sorts of paper derivatives and technological formats.

Dilapidated, mismatched, full of lament or jubilation;

The only inheritance I can leave for you

as a portrait of my modest genes and literary ribosomes.

Moralities for Life: Thoughts and Behaviors Justified by Dr. Hussam Atef Elkhatib

3d_cover

“Happiness is a form of energy and so is anger. Emotions are a form of vigor and so is love. Sadness is a form of dynamism and so is delight. What matters is how a person steers their mindset and how they direct their stance.”
Dr. Hussam Atef Elkhatib, Moralities for Life: Thoughts and Behaviors Justified

 

Book Description:

Moralities for Life are thoughts that roam through everyone’s mind at one time or another. They are concerns everyone once has had and remained with them until they became a part of what one intrinsically is. People often contemplate and wonder about ethics, friendships, society, religion, politics, relations, romance, faith, emotions, reactions, interactions, sexuality and the like. This book encompasses those concerns and much more. It projects their sensitivities in a neutral sense that is inclusive, yet bears in mind humanity as a whole. Those moralities have transpired from observations and experiences around the world, and are presented through a logical comprehensive method. The purpose is to provide joy that emerges from a selfless vision and elation that springs from a constructive attitude toward one’s own surroundings. This new outlook would be liable to aid one with a pragmatic vision that is optimistic and has a positive affirmation.

About the Author:
