Hundreds by Pepper Winters 

“I’m done hurting her. She’s been hurt enough. It’s time I set her free…” Once upon a time, I wished to go home and forget.
Now, I’m strong and ready to fight.
Seduced and claimed, Elder no longer just demands my voice, he commands me to be a thief like him.
I refuse.
But he offers me things I shouldn’t want, favours I should run from.
In return for his protection, I’m ordered to steal enough pennies and dollars to buy back my freedom.
Only, we both aren’t prepared for how he changes me, evolves me.
It’s my turn to learn about him.
It’s his wish to teach me how to be normal.
Until something goes wrong.
And our life together comes to an end.

I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her. No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun. I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea. Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything. Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us. The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

The Thing About Love by Julie James 

FBI agents Jessica Harlow and John Shepherd have a past. The former lawyer and cocky Army Ranger clashed during their training at Quantico and gladly went their separate ways after graduating from the Academy. Six years later, the last thing either of them expects is to be assigned to work as partners in a high-profile undercover sting. For both of them, being paired with an old rival couldn’t come at a worse time. Recently divorced from a Hollywood producer and looking for a fresh start, Jessica is eager to prove herself at her new field office. And John is just one case away from his dream assignment to the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team. In order to nail a corrupt Florida politician, they’ll have to find a way to work together—a task that becomes even trickier when they’re forced to hole up at a romantic beachfront resort as part of the investigation. Suddenly, the heat behind their nonstop sparring threatens to make the job a lot more complicated…

Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster 

Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends. Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive, and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his. The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotionally charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew.

Andy Grammer and a Coachella party.

Greetings from Palm Springs!

I’m out in the California desert at a conference with my husband. I’ve been spending most of my time under a pool umbrella with my computer editing a book called, Girl Off The Grid. I haven’t told you much about this book yet because it’s a project I’ve been working on with my daughter, Kenzie Harp, and since it’s our first time co-writing, I wasn’t sure how long it would all take. But . . . yay! It goes off to the editor on Monday, which means it should release sometime this summer, just in time to be a fun vacation read. Also, if you are following the YA paranormal Earth Angel series by B.C. Burgess, book four, The Lie,releases today. If you haven’t started this series, it’s for ages 15 and up so good!!

If you’ve yet to get book #4 in the Hollywood Love series (name redacted so it doesn’t send this to your spam folder, but it starts with a S and ends with EX) you can find it on all vendors here. You can also preorder LOVE, which releases November 21st, here.

Last week, I shared with you boards for K & A’s house as well as the one Tyler bought. This week, I want to share my vision for Dawson’s girls’ rooms that Vanessa had redone for them. This was a really fun scene for me to write. The former mean girl from The Keatyn Chronicles has definitely grown up to be an awesome, confident woman, but both she and Dawson are a little broken due to things happening prior to them meeting again. It’s been really satisfying for me as a writer to allow these two a second chance at love. Having Dawson and his girls move in with her is a big step for both their relationship and in Vanessa’s personal growth. Home is always an important theme in my books. Feeling like you’re home. Having friends and family to your space. The comfort our homes give us. I describe the change in Vanessa’s home from grand and opulent to casual and relaxed in detail, but it was the girls’ rooms that I had to design out in order to write about them. I hope you enjoy seeing what they look like and if they are how you envisioned based on the book. You’ll find a design board for Harlow’s equestrian princess room, Ava’s ultimate teen sleepover room, and her private bedroom. Hope you enjoy them!

Can you imagine it?

Hey, everyone! 

I just wanted to thank you for buying my new release last week. It debuted #1 on iBooks in the US, Australia, and New Zealand. And it’s all because of you! I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful reviews. I was super excited to hear that you loved the crazy proposal! 

If you’ve yet to get book #4 in the Hollywood Love series, Sex, you can find it on all vendors here. You can also preorder LOVE, which releases November 21st, here.

Those of you who are familiar with the Keatyn Chronicles know that I love choosing outfits for my characters. What you may not know is that I also shop online for their homes as well. This week, I thought I would share my inspiration for the house Aiden purchased in the book. It’s in the Chelsea neighborhood of London and was on the market while I was writing the book. It’s freaking gorgeous. (And I may have asked my Uber driver to take me by it when I was in London!) The other board is the awesome condo in L.A. that Riley’s assistant Tyler purchases in the book. “It’s within walking distance of Rodeo Drive!”
