SHANE MILLER SLEEP DIARY:

Went to bed at: Late.
How long it took to fall asleep: Forever. I have insomnia. Duh.
Number of caffeinated beverages you had consumed: Zero. Thanks for advising me to quit!


My stress level is off the charts.
I can’t sleep right on a normal day, and lately my days are filled with the best kind of chaos.
My ex-wife and husband number two are filming in Poland for three months,
so I’m turning down movie parts to focus on the most important role of my life—
impossibly charming and somewhat capable young single dad.
My son won’t stop asking questions.      
My daughter won’t brush her teeth unless I sing her showtunes.
Our regular nanny quit.
The only person I could trust to hire as a temp nanny is my best friend’s sister.

If Mary Poppins and Bill Murray had a baby it would be Willa.
Fresh out of grad school and beautifully weird.
She hates my movies, and my kids adore her.
I couldn’t sleep last night because she wasn’t here.
Turns out I can’t sleep unless she’s in my house now.
Turns out she’s what’s been missing from my life all along.
If my friend had any idea what I want to do to his gorgeous troublemaker of a sister,
he would smother me with a pillow.

The chances of us succeeding as a couple are about as good as that little indie movie
that I made being a huge hit.
But it’s a chance I’m going to take.







Author Bio

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Excerpt

Eleanor had only been in Charleston a short time when someone from Boston recognized her and began to make her life difficult. She was no witch, but as things began to heat up for her, she felt the only thing she could do was to pack up and head to another town. Before leaving Charleston, she had been warned to keep her wits about her by a fellow healer she had met on her travels throughout the colonies. It was a dangerous world, especially in the middle of a war.
She had a few shillings to her name that might get her a room at a boarding house for a night or two. Hopefully by then she could find some work and begin to rebuild her life once again. Walking along the muddied road of Ellis Square, she finally came upon a house with a sign that read, “Accepting boarders. Inquire inside.” She placed her bags on the ground for a moment to peer at the sign.
Grasping her bags, she headed toward the door of the house. As she approached, it swung open, knocking her to the ground. Almost cursing, she held her tongue and looked up…and her heart fell into her throat. A young man, one she guessed was close to her age, stood before her, his hand extended to hers.
“I’m so sorry, my lady. It never occurred to me that someone might be coming in. Are you okay? I didn’t hurt you, did I?”
Eleanor grasped his hand and as the light from the oil lamp hit his face she gasped, her heart stopping. For a moment the entire world disappeared. He was most handsome and quite appealing to her, and thoughts of a most pleasant nature crept into her mind. Sweeping them aside, she got to her feet and attempted to brush the mud from her dress, now soaked clear through to her undergarments.
“I can manage. Thank you,” she said as she grabbed for her bags.
“Let me help you with those, Mrs…”
“Mrs. Eleanor MacAllister of County Donegal, late of Boston and Charleston. I am a healer.”
“A healer, say you? I myself hale from County Donegal. Colm O’Donnell at your service, mistress. And where be your husband?”
“Well, Mr. O’Donnell, I have not yet wed. Perhaps someday.” Eleanor smiled and gathered herself as Mr. O’Donnell led her into the inn.
“Aye now, Mrs. O’Flannery, where be you? I have a young mistress that needs a room.” Colm’s voice rang throughout the inn and the patrons turned their gaze toward Eleanor and Colm.
Eleanor attempted to hide her face, but she could feel their stares on the back of her neck and it made the hairs stand on end. How she hated being the center of attention. All she wanted was a room and a place to bed down. She was so very tired and so very hungry. She had not eaten in days and it was beginning to weigh on her. As she looked around the room, an older woman appeared at the stairwell and made her way down the steps. Eleanor observed the weathered lines in the woman’s face and the frailty of her gait.
“Why, Mr. O’Donnell. Did you not just leave?” the old woman said as she passed by, patting Colm on the shoulder.
“Aye, yes, Mrs. O’Flannery, that I did. But I ran into Mistress MacAllister. She will be in need of a room and will need the privy.”
Mrs. O’Flannery walked toward Eleanor, who stood with her head still covered in her cape. “Let me help you, my child. I will get you upstairs and Mr. O’Donnell will fetch young Maggie to assist.
“Thank you, Mrs. O’Flannery.” Eleanor looked around the quaint inn and found an empty chair along the wall near the door. Colm had already returned from summoning the young maid and pulled the chair out for her.
“Maggie won’t be long. So, Mistress Eleanor, what brings you to Savannah?”
Eleanor paused for a moment; this was the one question she was hoping to avoid although she had already concocted a story. “Well now, Mr. O’Donnell, that is a most interesting story and one I fear should be made once I have a clearer head about me.”
“Ah, yes. I am quite sure you are exhausted from your travels. Perhaps tomorrow we may sit and talk,” Colm replied.
“Aye, yes, perhaps.”
“MacAllister, you say? Seems to me my father knew some MacAllisters. What part of County Donegal did you say you hailed from?”
“I didn’t,” Eleanor replied with a flirtatious grin. “Perhaps we will discuss that tomorrow.” It was then that a young woman scampered down the stairs, almost shaking the very foundation of the inn. Eleanor surmised she was not more than her own age of eighteen.
“Must you make a ruckus every time you come downstairs, Maggie?” Mrs. O’Flannery protested.
“No, Mistress. I will try to remember to be more courteous.” 
“You would do well to remember that, my dear. Now hurry and help Mistress Eleanor, and Mr. O’Donnell will be up with her bags. Get her a warm bath and help her prepare for bed. Take her to the room next to mine.”

Release Boost - Biker Babe by Audrey Carlan




Title: Biker Babe
Series: Biker Beauties #1
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2019



Blurb

From Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Calendar Girl series.

Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly, into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.

I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild, fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and ride through the night…in more ways than one.

I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands. Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old lady through thick and thin.

So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. Only problem, my father is the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new Vice President.

Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone knows the President’s daughter is off limits.

The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat, but don’t forget the sweet.

Cover Design: Julianne Burke, Heart to Cover
Cover Art: Sean Murphy
Release Date: March 24, 2020

I might as well permanently add the label "Ex" to my name. I'm an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I'm the ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor's daughter, Elaina Dyker.

And now, ten years later, I'm back, helping my siblings run my mother's bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I'm a stripper. And what's worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.

But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.

Now Hollywood's knocking again--and this time they want me and my ex, Mr. Beefcake, and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.

It could solve all my problems—except her.

I love coffee.
As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you, SEAN).
I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice (gasp!).
When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a motorcycle.
So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the throes of my imagination and am loving every minute of it. I can travel anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.
Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).
After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in ‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere in that mix, too.
I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my available books over on my Bookshelf or if you’ve already read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!

Excerpt

“Hey, Christene. Wait up!” 
I stopped mid-step, and my heart stuttered.
That voice. I’d remember that voice anywhere. Thick. Deep. Sexy. 
It’d been months since I heard him or seen him in person. I’d viewed every movie he’d made, watched every YouTube video of his interviews, and listened in on my sister’s conversations with her boyfriend just to hear what was going on in his life. 
My pulse ticked up in tempo. Tick. Tick. Tick. Like a bass drumming on the inside of my wrists. 
I froze, took a deep breath, composed myself, and turned around ever so slowly to find Jordan Ryder—the highest-paid actor in show business, Hollywood’s hotshot, America’s it guy—staring right back at me. 
He was also Cade’s adopted brother. Yep. My sister’s boyfriend’s brother. 
He blew out a breath of smoke and then flicked his cigarette to the side. A sizzle of electric energy surged between us, just like that very first day I’d met him months ago.
I took a step forward, and as though the world had suddenly tilted on its axis, I lost my footing. In slow motion, as if I were in The Matrix, my legs gave out, and I saw the ground, the gum on the concrete, the cracks in the foundation. One knee hit the concrete before I felt a pair of strong hands reach out to steady me.
My hands fell to his hips, and I thanked the heavens above that I hadn’t totally wiped out. I thought I had been saved, saved by an angel. But just when I was about to pull myself up, my other knee gave out, and I face-planted. Not on the ground, but into his crotch.
Oh. My. God.
When I tried to push myself to a standing position, pain seared through my scalp. Because, like on an episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos, I realized my perfect curls were stuck on his belt buckle.
“One second,” Jordan said.
Is he laughing?
Shit. Shit. Shit. He is.
