“It’s becoming fast apparent that the only way I’m going to be able to
stay away from a certain diner waitress is if she orders me away. . . And, even
then, it’s going to be difficult to stay away.”
Hollywood heartthrob Nate Stone returns to his south Louisiana hometown
to direct a movie, but once he gets there all he can think about is the pretty
waitress at the local diner. Tori Wilson knows that the smoking hot
actor-turned-director will stop at nothing to get her into his bed, but he can
only offer her a short affair–and he’s asking for a lot more than simple sex.
Tori has never wanted anyone as badly as she wants Nate, but is she willing to
let him take control when she’s already been burned before? And if she submits
to his commands, will he dominate her heart?
“Nate Stone leaves devastation in his wake. When he walks away from me
the last time, I’ll be a different person than I was before I met him. It would
be smart of me to end it here and now, but god help me, I’m in too deep already
and the only way this will end is when he leaves me for good, crushed and alone.
I can’t stop it and I won’t, I’ll continue to fall to my doom with only the
hope that there will be something left to my heart on the other side. Even so.
. . I want everything he can give me.”

Author Bio

 

D.L. Hess read her first romance novel when she was ten years old. It was Judith McNaught’s Once and Always, and she spent that entire Saturday night hiding in the closet and reading until she was done . . . only to start again from the beginning. That book left an imprint, an imprint that she hopes to leave with you.

D.L. Hess grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and now goes between her hometown and Los Angeles, where she works as a screenwriter. Her partner-in-crime is a nine-pound Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix named Busby Berkeley who travels with her everywhere in a carrier that looks like a purse. D.L. Hess is an avid fan of Cajun cooking, traveling, and discovering new experiences. Her travel bucket list includes cruising all the major rivers in the world. So far, she has only hit two of them.

Savage by Nicole Conway #BookRelease @paranormalcravi @Month9Books

 

Savage begins the Dragonrider Legacy series, a thrilling companion to the international bestselling Dragonrider Chronicles.

Never send a hero to do a monster’s job.

Forty years have passed since Jaevid Broadfeather brought peace to Maldobar and Luntharda. But that fragile truce will be tested as darkness gathers on the horizon. The vicious armies of the Tibran Empire have crossed the far seas and are threatening to destroy Maldobar completely. Not even the dragonriders can match the Tibran war machines. And after an attempt to awaken Jaevid from his divine sleep fails, the fate of Maldobar is looking grim.

Reigh has never known what it means to be a normal human. Raised amongst the gray elves in the wild jungle of Luntharda, he’s tried everything to fit in. But the dark power within him is bursting at the seams—refusing to be silenced. And while his adoptive father, Kiran, insists this power must be kept secret, Reigh knows he’s running out of time.

As Maldobar burns, the world is desperate for a new hero. Destiny has called, and one boy will rise to answer.

Stella Hart is the hottest thing in country music. For ten
years, she’s been Nashville’s darling. She’s pure, sweet, and a positive role
model in an industry rife with scandals, sex, and sequins. Men want to own her,
women want to be her—everyone wants a piece of her, and Stella? Well, she wants
out.
As the center for the Calgary Crushers, Van Ross isn’t afraid
of the spotlight, but he doesn’t much like it either. Despite his reputation as
a player, the NHL’s bad boy lives for only two things: the game, and his
younger brother. That’s why when he comes across a country music superstar
seeking refuge at his home in the Canadian Rockies, he’s not too happy with the
media shitstorm this surprise houseguest brings.
With a nationwide manhunt, paparazzi dogging their every
move, producers of a reality TV show baying for blood, and a record label
desperate to see their “good girl” returned safely home, Van and Stella’s lives
are snowballing out of control.
While Van would like nothing more than to show the purest of
them all how well he handles his er … stick, Stella is no puck bunny. Nor is
she as innocent as she’d have the world believe.With chemistry like theirs, tension runs high on and off the
ice, but the end game is the same for both players: line up the puck, take the
shot, and score. If only their hearts understood the play.

Puck fame and fortune.
Puck right and wrong.

 

Puck love.

 

Excerpt

I creep
into the room, wincing when my foot hits a creaky floorboard. I still, just
inches from the bed, paralyzed by fear. When he doesn’t move, I slowly pull
back the covers and slip beneath them, easing my head onto the pillow beside
his. Van’s arm automatically wraps around me and pulls me closer. I don’t know
if he’s still asleep, and I don’t much care because . . . cuddles.
It’s toasty and warm in his embrace, and I snuggle in.
Van takes a
deep breath in through his nose. “There she is.”
“This
doesn’t mean anything.”
“Sure it
doesn’t,” he mumbles, in possibly the sexiest sleep-roughened voice I’ve ever
heard.
“My fire’s
gone out. That’s the only reason I’m here right now.”
“Do you
want me to come light it again?”
I pause for
entirely too long. “No. You’re way hotter.”
He
chuckles. “Than fire?”
“Shut up.
You know what I mean.”
“I’m not
really sure I do. I think I’m going to need you to spell it out for me, snuggle
bunny,” he murmurs, his warm breath ruffling my hair. Oh, I’ll spell it out,
alright. I stretch my toes back and poke him with them. He jerks away, and I
plant both of my feet on his warm legs and chortle as he shrieks like a little
girl.
I snuggle
closer, my body spooned by his much larger one, and a beat passes in silence.
“Still doesn’t mean anything.”
“If I say
it doesn’t mean anything, will you shut up?”
“Yes.”
“If I say
it doesn’t mean anything, will you blow me?”
“Oh my god,
Van.” I attempt to squirm out of his grasp, but he pulls me closer and buries
his nose in my hair. He sighs loudly.
“Relax, I’m
just kidding. Sort of.”
“Go to
sleep, hockey hero.”

Excerpt
Austin pulled me to him and slid the hair off my neck and
over my shoulder. “You’re wearing my favorite dress from that shopping
trip you dragged me on for this vacation.”
“Am I?”
He nodded and gently traced my neck with the back of his
fingers just the way I liked. But then, I liked nearly every way he touched
me.
He lifted the silver luckenbooth brooch I’d pinned to my
dress and examined it with a wry grin on his face. “And you’re wearing my
brooch.” He looked up at me from beneath long, thick lashes. “I
sneaked this brooch on you without telling you the significance and let you take
it, hoping it would mean something more to you later. Do you know the meaning
of the luckenbooth?”
“Oh, aye.” I nodded solemnly. “The tealeaf
reader told me. She recognized it immediately.”
“And yet you’re still wearing it?”
“I kept it near even when I couldn’t remember you
specifically.”
“Me, specifically?” His small smile grew until it
lit his whole face. “You remembered me in general, then?”
I grinned back at him. How was it he always made me smile?
“The brooch made me happy. So yes, smart aleck, I remembered you in
general.”
Even given the craziness of the conversation, he seemed to
like my answer. “Now that you remember, you might recall we were talking
about getting married.”
I nodded. My heart raced. “I do. Are you
proposing?” He shook his head. “No. When I propose, there will be no
doubt in your mind you’re being proposed to.”
Still holding the brooch with one hand, he caught my wrist with
the other without breaking his gaze. “I’m serious, Blair. Women plan their
weddings from the time they’re little girls. Guys go carelessly through life,
not thinking too hard on it until it becomes obvious we have to think of a
special way to pop the question.”
“What are you asking?” I shook my hand free of his
grip and grabbed him by the shoulders, amused, touched, and sorry I was giving
him so much trouble. He was clearly insecure and wondering where we stood.
“Are you wondering if it’s still worth the trouble? If I’ve changed my
mind?”
He nodded. “I guess I am.” He paused. “You’ve
been in an accident. Had a nasty bump on the head. You could have come to your
senses and changed your mind. If you need more time—”
“I don’t need any more time to know my mind.” I
stroked his hair and his soft red curls. “I haven’t forgotten I love you.
The accident did me a favor—it showed me what my life would be like if I’d
never met you. I don’t want that life. Not at all.”
