You #1
by
Tina Ness

Release Date: October 26th 2014

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance





*** Synopsis ***


It Will Always Be You can be read as a stand-alone


After surviving four years with a commitment-phobic boyfriend, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to settle down. Too bad the man she desires, Marshall Roderick, leaves her flustered, trembling, and unable to utter a single word when he's near.

Assuming he's the very definition of a womanizing bachelor, Elizabeth relegates him to fantasyland and makes no move to get to know him. That is, until a chance encounter along the shores of Lake Superior leads to drinks and a steamy romance.

Confident, successful, and freakishly handsome, Marshall is everything Elizabeth has been looking for. But when an unthinkable act of violence shakes them both to the core, she discovers that Marshall isn't as carefree and put-together as he led her to believe.

Now it's up to Marshall and Elizabeth to figure out if their love can heal the scars of the past and turn them into the people they've always wanted to be.

*** Excerpt ***


Marshall and I are at the street corner, waiting to cross, when I turn toward the window of the Intrigued, an upscale clothing store. The mannequin on display is wearing a flirty, low-cut silver dress with a large turquoise jeweled necklace and a pair of black high-heeled strappy sandals that I find myself in love with. The outfit is the polar opposite of my Plain Jane T-shirt and jeans.

Marshall comes alongside me and sweeps the hair from my shoulder, away from my neck, then leans in, whispering in my ear, "You would look fantastic in that."

His words make me blush, but at the same time, I'm charged with a sense of empowerment. I decide that I'm coming into town this week and buying the whole outfit, even if I never have a place to wear it. I know Marshall must be a pro at telling women just what they want to hear to get them into bed; however, I can't help but have the notion that his words are sincere.

We finish our coffees and are moments away from being back at his truck. Now I feel nervous again.

We make our way around the corner into the dimly lit parking lot. Anxiety, anticipation, and pure adrenaline are weighing my breath. He presses the key fob to unlock the doors, and the truck beeps, startling me. He opens my door, but I don't turn to get in. My hands are trembling and my heart is pounding in my ears, but I grab ahold of his arm, searching for his eyes. His hand touches the back of my neck. A fire burns deep within his eyes as he studies me. His intensity should make me pull away or, at the very least, hesitate, but instead, my grip tightens on his arm as he lifts me nearly off my toes to meet his lips.

All of my nerve endings dance wildly. His grip is so tight that if his kiss hadn't taken my breath away, his intense strength surely would. A moan rattles deep in his throat. The sound makes me even weaker. His soft tongue sweeps along inside my mouth with such longing it renders me totally breathless. We stumble back a few steps until I'm pinned between him and the truck. I feel the glory of his firm bulge press against my belly. A sigh escapes me as I lace my fingers into his thick brown hair — something I have desired to do from the first time I saw him, when Marshall had looked at me with those intense eyes, those eyes that I have felt studying me so many times.

I love this feeling, the pure, raw, and ravishing emotion of a first kiss. The intenseness of being pinned against his truck and the twisted excitement of feeling unable to escape cause an almost primal desire to tighten like a fist within my belly. His teeth lightly graze my bottom lip, making me tremble with arousal.I never want this kiss to end.

*Excerpt Reveal* Strictly Temporary Volume Two by Ella Fox @authorellafox @RSofRomance





Leaning across the bed, I grab a condom from the side table and hand it to her.

"Put this on me," I say firmly.

Her eyes snap up to mine lightning fast. "I don't know really know how. They taught us on cucumbers and bananas in sex ed during high school, but—"

I can't contain the chuckle that erupts from my throat. "Consider me your human test dummy then. We're going to talk about long-term birth control, but until then we're using condoms. You're going to want to get used to putting them on me because we're going to be spending a lot of time in bed."

I give her room to maneuver so that she can sit up. Sitting back on my haunches, I watch as she opens the foil packet. It's a struggle not to beg her to hurry when she wraps her hand around my cock just below the tip. Holding me steady, she gets the condom into place and starts rolling it down. Covering her hand with mine, I help her roll it the rest of the way.

"Was I doing it wrong?"

"No, but I'm faster and I need to be inside that tight pussy right now."

Her half gasp, half giggle is enough to make me insane. Settling her back on the bed, I spread her legs and lower myself over her. After making sure that she's ready for me, I slowly begin to slide in.

Her slick heat envelops me like the tightest silken fist I've ever encountered. I want to be inside of her without anything between us so fucking bad that I swear I'd pay any amount of money to make that happen.

We both let out sounds of pleasure as I settle in as far as I can go, and I jerk against her when she grabs my ass in her hands.

"Fuck me, please," she says with a gasp.

Shaking my head at her with a laugh, I cover her mouth with mine and kiss her senseless. All the while continuing to pump slowly in and out of the most incredible woman on this fucking planet.

She breaks the kiss to let out a moan. "Faster," she cries.

"No," I say firmly. "Last night was fast. This morning is for slow and steady. I don't want it to be over quickly — I want to fuck your perfect pussy for as long as possible. I want you to come on my dick again and again. It doesn't always have to be fast to be good, beautiful. Let me show you all the ways that you can come."








Strictly Temporary Volume Two

*** Synopsis ***

Just a Small Towne girl...

This Alpha male knows the second he lays eyes on her that Arden is special - now he just has to work past her defenses.

*Release Day Blitz + Excerpt + #Giveaway* Sustain by Tijan @TijansBooks @RSofRomance




Meet Bri & Luke in Sustain!!


Sustain
by
Tijan





*** Synopsis ***


I had a simple life.
I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend's home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again, but I had to be honest. It wasn't a hard sell. Playing drums was in my blood. I used to be addicted and that craving hadn't been satisfied in three long years. The only problem was their lead singer.
It was him.
The drums might not have been the only thing I was addicted to. I think I was still addicted to him too.

Bri's pov


Luke hit a jarring note on his guitar below, drawing me from the past and back to reality. Seriously. I'd been ready to take on two thugs beside a dumpster for my stupid-ass cousin, but this had ice filling my veins.

I rolled my eyes upward. What was wrong with me?

The melody was addictive. I felt it reach deep inside me and take root. My breathing wavered as he kept playing. He moved down a chord, and the sound of it seeped into me, smoothing out the haunted memories. Then he began singing. His voice was soft and low, but I could hear it as if I were in the room. He was weaving a spell. It was like he threw a spear that had a rope attached to it at me from a hundred yards away, and it embedded deep into my stomach. Then he began pulling on it. I couldn't fight because it would yank out my insides, but damn, I didn't want to go with it. This whole thing with Luke was both painful and exhilarating at the same time. I had two urges going through me at once. One was to crap my pants, and the other was to start doing cartwheels.

I was just messed up, which is why I started down the stairs. I still had no clue what to say, but I had to do something.

He was hunched over the guitar in his lap with a beer at his feet. His eyes were closed, and his head hung over the guitar as he hit another chord, his thumb beating out the base. Since he was only wearing jeans, I saw some of the scars on his back. A storm of regret, shame, and longing all swirled inside me. I wanted to go to him, run my hands over those scars, and make them disappear. I couldn’t, though. We weren't close anymore.

So many ghosts within you

So many haunts to pull you away

You look, I reach out and there's nothing to do

They take you from me again, far away

I can't, I can't, I can't take your hand

He kept singing, and my heart felt like it was splitting into two, but then he faltered. His eyes opened, and he looked up. He didn't stop playing, but he stopped singing.

I felt like he was strumming me. I couldn't look away from his gaze. His thumb stopped hitting the bass, and his fingers slowed on the guitar. "What are you doing here?"

Right. I was pretty sure I was seeing lust in his eyes. With that thought, a fever took over my blood, heating me up. "I," my tongue wet my lips, "um, I'm here to talk about you and me."

His gaze clouded over, and his eyelids lowered. He bent his head back over his guitar, but he didn't start strumming again. "There is no 'you and me.' You're in the band. That's it."

I swallowed the lump in my throat. "Luke," I started.

"No." He stood up abruptly, setting his guitar to the side. He advanced toward me, his eyes were smoldering.

When my back hit the wall, I realized I had nowhere else to go and could only watch as he closed in on me. A part of me wanted him to keep getting closer; the other part of me was still thinking about crapping my pants.

He leaned a hand against the wall beside my head, keeping a few inches between us. His eyes were hard as he said, "There is no you and me. That died long ago, remember?"








*** About the Author ***


I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

A friend just told me he saw her on Facebook.

And now I'm a keystroke away from asking her the question that's haunted me for two decades.

"Why did you leave me?"


Two decades after she broke his heart, sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore uncovers the truth and betrayal his life has been built on when he Facebook friend requests college love, Mia Silver. Determined to win Mia's love once again, Schooner embarks on a life-altering journey that could cost him everything.

But is their love really strong enough to overcome the damage of those missing 24 years or will they continue to be ripped apart by pasts that can't be changed?



MOORE THAN FOREVER - Book 3

Is the love they always dreamed of enough?

Continuing the emotional journey of love and betrayal that began on a college campus in Searching for Moore and turned their worlds upside down in Moore to Lose, handsome, California entrepreneur Schooner Moore and sharp and sassy, New York advertising agency owner Mia Silver continue to be confronted with the harsh reality of the remnants from the lives they lived apart for 24 years.

Now, Schooner Moore and Mia Silver face the ultimate challenge - were they really meant to be together or will their pasts continue to tear them apart?

On the heels of the birth of their newborn son, Nathaniel, Schooner and Mia must decide if their love and loyalty to one another is strong enough to learn to grow together as a couple or if the life they always dreamed of sharing was better left as a teenage fantasy.
