Unforgiven by Ruth Clampett
Publication Date: March 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

Excerpt

“What started all of this tonight? First I walk in on you having sex with yourself … then you grill me about having sex with Ramon … and then you suggest we have sex.” He rakes his fingers through his hair. “You’re making me crazy, dude. How much did you drink anyway?”

“Enough to loosen up and let my mind go places it normally doesn’t.”

His eyes light up. “I’ll say.”

“Hey, I’m really curious now. Will you let me fuck you? I promise I’ll follow what you want and take it slow.”

“Oh Jesus. Are you serious? So more experimenting, huh?”

“I think it’ll help me understand more about you.”

“You know when I said I needed more, this isn’t exactly what I meant. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of you fucking me is making me hard as hell, but it’ll just complicate things even more.”

“It doesn’t have to complicate things. Is it really so crazy to just want to make each other feel good?” I pause for a moment. “Come on, JJ.”

Lifting myself off the bed, I slowly approach him. As I get closer, I press my naked body into him so he’s up against the doorjamb, then I boldly rub my palm over his hard cock that’s trapped in his pajama bottoms.

I take a sharp breath because I’m shocked I’m even suggesting fucking my best friend. This is crazy, but feeling myself against him and imagining him naked under me is turning me on like a rocket with a sparking fuse.

He stands frozen, every part of him perfectly still, and then he gasps for air. “Please, Dean, please tell me you aren’t toying with me.”

I press my face into his neck. “I’m not toying with you, man. I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I have all these confusing feelings and my curiosity is through the roof. I’ve been so damn restless lately, and suddenly I have a feeling that if I turn a corner, I might find myself right where I need to be.”

Jason slides his arm along my lower back and curves his fingers around my side, then pulls me closer. “Don’t make me hope for something, and then crush me. I wouldn’t be able to take it. Our friendship means everything to me. It’s why I’m still standing and fighting for a future, when for a long time I wasn’t sure if I deserved one.”

I pull my head back so we can be face to face. It guts me to see so much pain in his eyes. Why the hell didn’t I see all of this before? He’s my best friend, dammit. I should have known he was hurting.

He shakes his head. “I can’t lose you, Dean. I can’t. Tread carefully, man.” His eyes are glazed like he’s fighting back tears.

I take his hand and guide him into my room. “You aren’t going to lose me. Maybe this whole thing of me learning your secrets happened to bring us closer.”

“I want that,” he whispers, and then more softly he murmurs, “I want you.”

Crazy Over You by Daisy Prescott ~Cover Reveal~

Release Date: March 28, 2017

Daisy Prescott released the beautiful new cover for Crazy Over You, her soon to be released romantic comedy from her new Love with Altitude series.

Can’t wait to dive into this book!

 

~Posted by Daisy Prescott’s~

A blizzard is the perfect time to reveal the beautiful, wintery cover of Crazy Over You, a new second chance Romantic Comedy set at high altitude in the small town of Aspen.

I love this amazing cover by Author S M Lumetta! She nailed the look and feeling I wanted. <3

This is the official launch of my new series, Love with Altitude. I’m branching out to a new setting, but these books will have the same banter, humor, heart, and small town setting you’ve come to know in my other series. Only at high altitude! Next to You, featuring Stan the Man Bun, is now Book One in the new series of standalone Rom Coms.

I love this new series. And a big part of that is because it was inspired by you, my dear readers.

In 2015 I asked my reader group who they’d like to see in a short story for the LOL3 anthology. You voted for Ben and Jo from We Were Here and Geoducks. The winter theme of LOL3 inspired me to set the story in Aspen. If you haven’t read it, a hot, South African man-bun sporting man named Stan flirts with Jo.

Even though he was only in the story for about 2000 words, readers loved him and asked for his book. What? Stan? The bartender/model/rugby player? The guy with the man bun?

I did another poll in my reader group about what projects people wanted next from me. Guess who won? Stan the Man Bun. Readers loved him. So I wrote Next to You.

You asked for more and I love making my readers happy. Thank you for encouraging me and inspiring me! I always say I have the best readers in the world! <3

And here we are… a whole new interconnected standalone series! Love with Altitude will have four books:

Next to You
Crazy Over You
Wild for You
Up to You

I hope you love Crazy Over You as much as I do. It’s fun, silly and full of heart. Mara Keiley and Jesse Hayes are two of my favorite characters.

BOOK BLURB:

My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.

What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream vet job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.

I never thought I’d see her again.
My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.

Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

Crazy Over You is a standalone second chance romantic comedy.

SHERILYN FENN AND KATIE LECLERC JOIN CAST OF CONFESS, AWESTRUCK’S FIRST SCRIPTED SERIES FOR go90™

Production Has Begun on the Series Based On the Romance Novel by New York Times Best Selling Author, Colleen Hoover


image005

Los Angeles, CA—December 7, 2016— Awestruck, the fastest growing digital entertainment brand for millennial moms, is proud to announce that production on their first ever scripted series has begun. The series for go90 is based on Colleen Hoover’s novel, Confess, which won the Goodreads® Choice Award for Best Romance Novel of 2015.

Based upon the novel from bestselling author Colleen Hoover, Confess is a modern love story about the secrets we keep to protect the ones we love. Auburn Reed, played by Katie Leclerc known for her role in Freeform’s Switched at Birth, is determined to put her challenging past behind her and get her future on track. Now in her mid-twenties and struggling to fund her custody battle for her only son, she stumbles upon the art studio of the talented and charming artist, Owen Gentry, played by Ryan Cooper, known for his role in MTV’s Eye Candy, and who will be appearing in the comedy Rock That Body with Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon, in 2017. The two wrestle with their developing romance and the secrets they’re both keeping until they realize they may risk their future if they don’t reveal their pasts to each other. Will they confess, and can their love survive the truth?

Acclaimed actress Sherilyn Fenn, known for Shameless, Ray Donovan, and her iconic role as Audrey Horne in the original Twin Peaks and the upcoming 2017 reboothas joined the cast as Lydia, a figure from Auburn’s past. Rounding out the cast is prominent DJ & influencer Amy Pham as Emory, Auburn’s best friend; Brittany Furlan, actress and notable social media influencer, as Hannah, Owen’s ex-girlfriend, and Rocky Myers, appearing in Bloodline: Now or Never in 2017, as Trey, another man vying for Auburn’s heart.

Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of eleven novels and five novellas. Hoover published her first novel, Slammed, in January 2012. Since then, all of her full-length novels have become New York Times bestsellers. This year, Colleen was awarded the Goodreads Choice Award in the romance category for the second year in a row for her novel It Ends With Us.

“I’m excited that my partners at Awestruck are transforming my novel, Confess, into a scripted series,” says author Colleen Hoover. “I’ve poured my heart and soul into the romance genre and am honored that my work will now be visually represented for readers everywhere. I can’t wait for you to experience the story of Auburn and Owen, two strangers that take a huge risk on their growing love, and find their hearts caught between truth and lies.”

“Developing Confess, our first scripted series, is the next step in the Awestruck evolution and we are thrilled to bring Colleen’s characters to life,” said Lisa Berger, Executive Producer. “Colleen is one of the most respected romance writers working today, and we are honored to partner with her and seize this opportunity to tap into this underserved market. We’re committed to making the type of content women want to watch, and there’s nothing like a good romance.”

Confess is adapted for the screen and directed by Elissa Down. Executive producers include Lauren Levine, Colleen Hoover, Amy Kim and Jamie Burke (Lifeboat Productions), Brian Robbins, Brett Bouttier, and Lisa Berger. The series will premiere in early 2017 exclusively on go90.

CONFESS

BY COLLEEN HOOVER

 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a  novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.

Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is keeping some major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin…

THE ROOM MATE by Kendall Ryan – Cover Reveal

 

New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan brings us a brand new standalone on January 24, 2017 – THE ROOM MATE! When someone is off-limits it’s hard to resit.

 

room-mate_amazon

 

 

room-mate_amazonThe last time I saw my best friend’s younger brother, he was a geek wearing braces. But when Cannon shows up to crash in my spare room, I get a swift reality check.

Now twenty-four, he’s broad shouldered and masculine, and so sinfully sexy, I want to climb him like the jungle gyms we used to enjoy. At six-foot-something with lean muscles hiding under his T-shirt, a deep sexy voice, and full lips that pull into a smirk when he studies me, he’s pure temptation.

Fresh out of a messy breakup, he doesn’t want any entanglements. But I can resist, right?

I’m holding strong until the third night of our new arrangement when we get drunk and he confesses his biggest secret of all: he’s cursed when it comes to sex. Apparently he’s a god in bed, and women instantly fall in love with him.

I’m calling bullshit. In fact, I’m going to prove him wrong, and if I rack up a few much-needed orgasms in the process, all the better.

There’s no way I’m going to fall in love with Cannon. But once we start…I realize betting against him may have been the biggest mistake of my life.
