BLURB

I had two rules in life:

Never fall in love.
Never have sex with a student.

As a college preceptor, you’re not supposed to fraternize with your pupils, but what happens when you get a taste of the forbidden before you know it isn’t supposed to be yours?

That night at Brian’s bachelor party was epic. We danced, I dominated, and she left. One night, no further contact, no regrets, just how I liked it—until she walked into my algebra class the next week, and I knew the two rules I had in place had to change.

Never fall in love.
Never get caught having sex with a student.

EXCERPT

There were times when Raphael and I danced together, our bodies twisting and turning as more songs continued to play. I could feel Cas watching us, but I didn’t care. I was having a good time with him. At least he wasn’t an asshole. The DJ announced she was taking a few-minute break, so I walked back over to Anna.
“Anna, where’s the bathroom?”
“It’s back there,” she said, pointing toward the back of the room.
“Thanks. I’ll be right back, Raph.”
As I went inside the room and closed the door behind me, locking it, so no one else barged in, someone pounded on the door as soon as I finished.
“Sorry, occupied.”
“Taylin, open the door right now.” The familiar voice stopped me in my tracks.
“Go away, Cas,” I said, washing my hands and looking at myself in the mirror to buy me some time.
“Open the door before I break it down!” he yelled. Is this guy for real?
I unlocked the door, not wanting him to cause a huge scene.
“What do you want?” I huffed, shocked by the audacity he had.
He pushed his way in, locking the door behind us. He cornered me and placed his hands on the walls beside me. “What are you doing here?” His eyes narrowed at me.
Having him this close did something to my body. I wasn’t afraid, but slightly turned on.
“I don’t have to tell you shit.”
“Answer me!” he demanded.
I held my ground with him, looking him in his eyes. I wanted to give him such a hard time, and make him pay for everything he had done, but something inside of me obliged. “Your boy, Jay, is dating my best friend, Anna. He invited her, and she brought me. Not that it even matters.”
He went quiet and looked me up and down. “It fucking matters. I’ve missed you,” he admitted. His head hung low.
“I don’t care. Get out!” I said, tears blurring my vision.
“No.” He tilted my chin up, staring intensely into my eyes. “I won’t. You shouldn’t be here with him.”
“Then who should I be here with, Cas?” I pushed him back, trying to create some space between us.
“Me.” What a joke.
“Well, you’ve ignored me for how many months now?”
“I had to.”
“Who told you that you had to?”
“It’s complicated, Taylin. Fuck! I just—”
I cut him off, I didn’t even want to hear whatever excuse he was getting ready to say to me. “A simple text would have sufficed, but no, you couldn’t even do that!” I yelled, tears sliding down my cheek.
“I’m sorry, but I’m gonna take back what’s mine. Tell me to stop if you don’t want it.” His eyes darkened with desire.
I couldn’t tell if it was the alcohol or me craving his touch, but I choked out, “I want it.”
Our lips crashed together as his hands roamed freely all over my body. He clasped my hands together behind my back and propped my ass up on the sink, moving my dress out of the way for easy access.
“You will never dance with another man ever again. You got it?”
“Then don’t piss me off,” I sassed with a raised brow.
He tightened his grip on my wrists behind me. “Do you understand what I said, Ms. Bradford?”
“Yes.” I nodded, completely breathless.
“Good, girl.”

Series: Ryan Brothers #1
Author: Bella Di Corte
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Qamber Designs
Release Date: June 10, 2022


BLURB

Harrison:

Life in three steps: Go to college. Get a job. Marry the girl of my dreams.

I went to college, then got a job with one of New York’s most notorious gangsters.

The girl? I lost her to a man who didn’t deserve her.

So when one of Italy’s most famous women made me a proposition to help me win her back, I couldn’t refuse her offer.

Georgina “Gigi” Dolce wasn’t the shallow Italian principessa I took her for, though—and she was out to wreck my well-laid plans.


Gigi:

Harrison Ryan thought he had me all figured out.

Because the world called me “beautiful,” he assumed I only ran skin deep. But he had no idea who I was beneath the surface.

How I craved to be loved by someone loyal and unwavering like him. How far I would go to claim that love for my own.

And when I wanted something, I considered it mine.

I wanted him.

Hailey
The warm evening sun beats down on my shoulders as I chat with Ashley and her group of girlfriends. My brain is on overdrive as I take in their varying sizes of baby bumps. Do not drink the water. I set down the plastic bottle and grab a glass of champagne instead. Much safer.
Ashley frowns. “That’s rude.”
“Please.” I smirk. “You wouldn’t know rude if it smacked you in the face. You realize you’ve been talking non-stop about sex for twenty minutes, and I haven’t gotten any in over nine months.”
“Oh, honey.” Veronica pats my arm. “That sucks. I should know. Before Devin and I got together, I was celibate for almost three years and pregnant for nine of those months.”
“Three years,” I choke and raise the glass to my lips. There’s no way in hell I can last three years. My spiel to Austin was total bullshit. I miss sex. I miss rough, calloused hands sliding along my skin. Firm thighs slamming against the backs of my legs. And a mouth and tongue devouring my sex. I convulse. I miss it more since I met Austin.
I’m about to come unglued between his endless string of memes and movie quotes and my vibrator going on the fritz. Two days shipping has always been my friend. Until the light stopped glowing on my rabbit, and now two days seems like a never-ending chemistry class. I’m about to drive up to the warehouse myself and collect my order.
Buzz. Buzz. My cellphone vibrates in my hand. And just like a crack addict that can’t be away from my fix for ten seconds, I swipe the screen.
Austin: Just how I pictured you.
Heat floods my body. Is he here? Why didn’t he tell me he was coming?
Coming. I convulse as my clit throbs with desire. It’s stupid, but I can’t stop thinking about him.
Me: Standing with a bunch of pregnant women praying I don’t get water instead of champagne?
I study the girls out of the corner of my eye as they talk about the upcoming football training camp.
Buzz. I couldn’t stop the adrenaline racing through me if I wanted to. And I don’t want to. He might be a bad decision, but I’ve made worse. Hell, I met him when I was on a date with a drug dealer at a sex party. You can’t get much worse than that.
Austin: Absolutely. Except, I was talking about the bikini, and those fuck-me shoes.
Fuck me. He said fuck me. Oh, my God. I feel like a fourteen-year-old girl being teased by the hottest jock in school.
Me: Just how did you imagine the fuck-me shoes?
Austin: Digging into my back.

EXCERPT

Peter wanted to spill all the things the woman had done to his family, but he restrained himself. Now wasn’t the time.
“I’m exhausted. Do you mind if we call it a night? I arranged to go to work a little late in the morning, but I still don’t have much time to sleep.”
Carrie nodded her agreement, but Peter could see the disappointment in her eyes. Was she hoping to pick up where they had left off? Peter felt like a bastard for not thinking of it sooner, but right now he just wanted to sleep and put all of this out of his mind. Seeing her again had stirred up some of his more bitter feelings, and he didn’t trust himself to hold them in around Carrie.
But then she stood and put her arms around him. “You seem tense. Maybe I could help you with that?” She took his hand and led him to the guest room, then backed him against the door, where she dropped to her knees and started to unzip his pants.
“Is this OK?”
How could he say no to that? But he needed to warn her of how he was feeling, or it wouldn’t be fair.
“I’m angry right now, Carrie. I don’t want to hurt you, but…”
She pulled his zipper the rest of the way down. “But you really want to ram your cock down my throat and take it out on me?” She gave a little one-shouldered shrug and jerked his slacks down. “Fine by me. I know how to get you to stop if you take it too far.”
Fuck. Could she be any more perfect?
She wanted to push him, so he was going to push right back.
“Then why isn’t my cock in your mouth yet?”

From USA Today bestselling author Adriane Leigh comes a novel woven with madness, revenge, tragedy, and the everlasting spirit of love.

She never expected to find herself embroiled in a cold case that has kept a tiny seaside village on edge for years.

When another woman vanishes into thin air, Fable begins to wonder if there is more to the dark legends that cling to the island like a cold ocean mist. And if her brooding, devastatingly handsome new neighbor, Alder, is the only one that holds the key to her family's tragic past.

LEGENDS AND LOVERS is a collection of dark legends and star-crossed love stories from twenty bestselling authors. Woven with mystery and magic, love and lore, romance and suspense, this multi-author collaboration promises to make your heart pound and keep you reading late into the night.

EXCERPT

I feel her before I see her.
I can’t explain this thing between us, why I keep showing up when she needs it most, but it’s real and I’m a slave to follow the instinct.
The instinct that always leads me to her.
I’ve been trying my best to keep our unusual connection low-key, but she never makes it easy. She seems to find herself in the most unlikely places at the most unfavorable times.
Like right now.
I groan as she picks her way along the edge of the seaside cliff. The mist clings to her pale nightdress; the soft fabric is almost sheer as the silver moonbeams cut across her form. My heart is so rattled by her presence, it takes everything in me to resist going to her. My instincts tell me to wrap her in my arms, lock her in the keep of Leith Hall and throw away the key if that’s what it takes to keep her safe, but I know that won’t work. Not this time. Fable is headstrong; it’s what landed her in the loch without breath in her lungs. It’s what brought me to her the first time, and it’s what brings me to her now.
She’s determined to find the truth; I’ll give her that. I imagine she’s just spent the night reading more of the books Keats recommended, the ones I insisted she start with if she has any hope of solving Skye’s oldest cold case. Fable’s great-aunt’s disappearance is famous around here, but they all are. The girls who vanish from this island are all of a type—young, na├»ve, headstrong, and heart-stopping in their beauty.
Fable fits the mold perfectly, and it terrifies me.
Spending time with Harris won’t end well. I can already see the epic crash and burn in my mind’s eye. She doesn’t know it, but I can sense it coming from a thousand years away. Fable, on the other hand, seems unable to sense anything. Her senses are dulled to the force this island has on people, the way the mist bends the perspective and twists the thoughts. Humans aren’t meant to be so isolated, and Fable is already suffering the effects. Leith is a rambling, imposing monster of cobbled-together ruins and dark, damp corridors. It’s no place for a woman as soft and sweet as she is, but then, there’s nothing I can say that will convince her of that.
Only that I’ll take care of her if she can’t do it herself.
She must hate me for being so abrasive, but I can’t think of another way to make her understand that she’s playing with fire when she asks for the truth.
