Verity Jacobs

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 27th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Margot Duke can't keep her long-distance relationship alive any more than she can the cells that are supposed to be taking center stage in her PhD thesis. Both seem to be suffering an inexplicably long and drawn-out death, and she's spent more than enough time fretting about it, without any solution in sight.

It figures that the one day she chooses to pack it all in and stop caring is the day she meets Jonathan Young.

Jonathan swings through town with his band, just long enough to knock Margot off her feet, and leave her feeling a little giddy in his wake. The encounter proves once and for all that her inter-continental love affair is over, but can she really stomach the idea of starting another one right on its heels? And with the darling of the indie rock world at that?

✿ Excerpt ✿


Keeping it PG-13

"Hi," Jonathan said, the timbre of his voice running up and down my body like fingertips on silk. "It's nice to meet you all."

I looked over at him and felt my desire bloom inside again. His smile was suddenly open and easy, his eyes twinkling under that fabulous mess of dark hair. I felt the entire table fall under his spell with a dull thud.

"So you"re in a band?" Tek squawked skittishly.

See the alpha male go all fanboy, I thought with a grin, winking when his glance flicked to mine.

"That's cool," he added, coming over casual and scowling back at me.

"I'm in a band," Jonathan said with a nod.

"Not tonight though," he continued, looking over at me and stretching an arm across the back of my chair. "Tonight, I'm just with her."

"Her?" I repeated, getting lost in his gaze and feeling the need start to bleed through my system.

"You," he said quietly. His hand edged forward and found the bare skin where my back met my arm. I willed it to keep going and touch the side of my breast. I wanted those hands all over me again. On my breasts and in my hair and cupping the backs of my knees as he slammed himself into me.

Now it was my turn to smile awkwardly, and he recognized the shift in an instant, a smile tugging at one corner of his mouth.

"Right, we get that you two are into each other," said Tek, apparently having recovered from his momentary bout of groupiedom. "Can you keep it together long enough to be a little bit social?"

Jonathan laughed and turned back to face him. "Hey man, can you blame me?" he said. "She's so fucking beautiful that I have trouble breathing sometimes when I look at her."

I felt my heart trip over itself and then stop completely. I caught Kate's eye just long enough to see her melt all over the floor.

"And as I only get to look at her for another twelve hours," he was saying, "I think you're gonna have to suck it up and deal with our shit."

It was Tek's turn to laugh. "Yeah, alright," he said. "Just try to keep it PG-13, will you?"

I smiled and leaned into Jonathan's side, snuggling up against him and shivering when his fingers found the lace of my bra, playing out the thoughts I'd just entertained.

✾ Synopsis ✾


Kate Ramsey is at the top of her game.

She's the hot new recruit at the most prestigious research institute in Germany, and she's determined to live up to the hype — even if it means working day and night. Stress relief comes in the form of a no-nonsense affair with her neighbor, who also happens to be the director of the institute. Who says sex should be anything more than a contract between two people who have other things on their mind?

So when Tom Baker saunters into her life, Kate is understandably upset to see this well-oiled machine splutter and seize. Tom is young and smart, and far too pretty for his own good. Kate can't help but be drawn to him, even if giving in to the attraction would mean risking everything she's worked for.

✿ Excerpt ✿


The barista hands me my coffee. I stuff the receipt in my pocket walking out but stopping short when I get a better look at the dad and his daughter.

It's Eli.

Eli and his daughter.

Eli. Has. A. Kid.

I duck back into the coffee shop trying to figure out a way to get around him without being seen. I take a seat at an empty table that gives me a little view of Eli. My heart is beating so fast and I'm shaking. Holy shit, I can't believe he has a kid. How did he not tell me this? Did I miss the pictures of her in his office? How come she's never come in for a visit before opening?

All of these questions are swirling around in my head when I see a tall, beautiful brunette walk out of Victoria's Secret and right over to where Eli is with his daughter. I stop breathing and my vision blurs as she places a hand on Eli's shoulder and leans in to kiss the little girl's cheek.

A chair slides across the tile floor startling me. I grab my coffee, stand up and look around trying to figure out which way is the fastest to get outside, to get away from this train wreck. I realize there are no exits nearby, only a bathroom so that's where I head.

I take a sip of my coffee and toss the rest in the trash... not even drinking that will help ward off the headache now.

Stepping out of the coffee shop I keep my head down until I turn the corner where I'm safe, only I'm not.

Oomph. Firm hands grasping my upper arms keep me steady. My cheek rests against a hard toned chest. The aroma of a crisp sea breeze with a hint of woodsy essence invades my senses and makes my world tilt.

My heart rate picks up a beat and I try to quickly recover by taking a few steps back. "I'm sorry." I say before looking up.

The guy chuckles and it's like a bucket of cold water that washes over me. I know that sound and it's the last person I wanted to run into right now. It's the person I was running from.

"What are you doing?" He asks.

I roll my eyes while adjusting the strap on my purse. "Shopping, what else do you do at a mall, Eli?"

"By yourself?"

I huff annoyed that he would think I can't shop by myself. "Yeah."

"Where's Brian?" When his name rolls off his tongue I cringe.

"Where's your girlfriend?" Yeah, jerk, I saw her and your daughter.

Eli smirks and I want to punch him in the face. "I don't have one."

"Then who's that?" I say nodding towards the pretty girl with her daughter who looks to be about Fallon's age.

"Jealous?"

I glare, getting more and more pissed off that he's not claiming them. "Nope."

"Then why does it matter who that is?"

"It doesn't."

He smiles a cocky smile. "I'll tell you on one condition."

"What's that?"

He takes a small step towards me and leans down to whisper in my ear. "Go out to dinner with me again tonight."

I push on his hard stomach. "No."

Eli laughs. "Why not? It's just friends having dinner."

"Because." I can't think of a reason to say no but I know that I should.

Eli takes a step closer and I take a step back. "There has to be a reason, Layla." He takes another step towards me and my back hits the wall. He's got me cornered and his girlfriend and daughter are right there. This is so fucked up. "Are you afraid of what might happen?"

I swallow hard. "No."

He brings his mouth right to my ear and whispers, "Are you afraid of me or what will happen when you’re with me?"

A shiver racks my body as his warm breath hits my ear. He's so cocky but in a sexy sort of way.

Eli kisses the lobe of my ear. "Which is it, Layla?"

I can't speak. I can barely hold myself up against the wall. He bites down on my ear and I whimper. Breathing is optional at this point.

Why is he doing this? He just kissed my fucking ear, in the mall, in broad daylight, and I'm like a deer caught in headlights right now.

"I'll pick you up at seven. Wear something nice."

And then he's gone leaving me speechless and utterly breathless.


What the hell just happened?

✿ Excerpt ✿


We made out for a full quarter-hour before I noticed the tent in the living room.

"Matt!" I snickered. He'd moved the coffee table and couch to accommodate the tent. It was new, or new to me — a tall gray and orange dome.

"Aha, she finally sees it." He stalked over to the tent. Yes, it was definitely new. Matt wore his distinct "Do you like my new toy?" expression, and he circled the tent and folded his arms and studied it, signaling that I should also take a moment to admire it. I did.

"Wow... it's nice." I touched one of the poles. "So big. So..." In our living room.

"Mm. I got it at REI. Had to throw it together, make sure nothing was missing." He frowned at the mesh-and-polyester palace. "I thought we might take it for a spin this evening, but not in this weather."

On cue, thunder crackled and boomed outside.

"Oh, babe." I rubbed his back. "Lemme get into dry clothes and we'll 'take it for a spin' right here, okay?" I kissed his cheek. "Happy Fourth."

His eyes lit up like a child's.

"Perfect," he said, already halfway into the tent.

I peeled off my wet clothes and changed into my Shell Belle Couture chemise, an expensive little gift from Matt. I never bought such nice things for myself. The champagne silk complemented my pale skin and felt luxurious. The lace cups, well... I resisted the urge to grab a robe as I felt my nipples hardening. Matt liked the lace cups best of all.

In the bathroom, I untangled my hair with Moroccan oil and washed my face. On my skin, I left the scent of rainwater.

I returned to a living room devoid of pillows.

The tent flap was shut.

"Knock knock?" I said.

With a swift zinging sound, Matt unzipped the door from inside.

"Why, come in." He was laughing. The tent was tall, but taller Matt stood stooped beneath the dome. All our pillows lay around his feet.

"Don't mind if I do." I took his hand and stepped inside.

He stared openly at my chest.

"Oh," he said.

His expression grew somber. I wanted to burst out laughing.

God, his cuteness...

"Very swanky in here." I sat cross-legged on a pillow and looked around. The tent was cozy, the inner flaps a vibrant orange, and adorable Matt had stocked a wall pouch with snacks and drinks: two cans of Coke and a bag of goldfish. In another flap, two books and a flashlight.

"I was just testing those pouches," he mumbled, gesturing to the snacks. "Hi." He shucked off his shirt — yum — and crawled to me. "Hi..."

"Hi," I said, giggling. "Hello. Did I ruin storytime with lingerie?" I slid my fingers up his arms. Whisper of skin on skin. My hands curled over his shoulders.

"No." He closed in on me, his body pressing mine back and down. He went for my neck with his teeth, like an animal. Bit the column of my throat. Licked away the hurt.

"Ah," I gasped, arching under him. I pawed at his abs and pulled at the band of his lounge pants.

An electrical pop sounded in the condo and the room went dark.

Matt and I froze.

We laughed in unison, sitting up and holding one another.

Pure darkness. I clung to his torso.

"Well, this is a first," I said. "Our first power outage."

"Always be prepared." Matt groped around until he found the flashlight. He turned it on and hung it from the top of the tent. A cone of light shone over us.

His erection tented the front of his pants. I reached for it, my hand drawn to it. I gripped his head through the fabric. God, I loved seeing him turned on.

"I'm glad that happened." He flexed into my hand. "Slowed me down."

"Baby, you don't have to slow down."

"I know. I want to." He caressed the undersides of my breasts and my nipples. The intricate lace of the cups scratched gently at my skin. I twitched and moaned.

He reached up and turned off the flashlight.

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Why, Jared Hoffman, do you not want this?" I tease, slowly unbuttoning his shirt.

He smiles, his hands bracing themselves on the bed at either side of my head. "I didn't say that... it's just I don't want to rush anything."

Jared's shirt falls open when I finally reach the last button. His perfect abs are shadowed and defined by the moonlight. My eyes start up his chest. "Rush?" I whisper softly as my hands graze their way up his biceps that frame my face. "Jare... this has been seven long years in the making. I think we've waited long enough."

He pauses for a second. I hear his breath hitch in his throat as his dark eyes study my face. For some reason, I'm surprised when I feel Jared's lips on mine. The passion between us is renewed at my admission. It's my turn to moan against his lips. My legs automatically slide up and down his, causing my dress to hike up slightly before my legs wrap themselves around his waist. His hands make their way up my side slowly as if ingraining into memory the curve of my body. My hands have automatically found their way to his belt. I slip my fingers through it and release the hook, swinging it open. Before I know it, I’m unbuttoning his jeans. That’s when I feel his hands squeeze me tight. His lips leave mine for the first time since I spoke, and I feel them slowly trace their way down my neck. My fists clench against the skin on his waist.

"Oh, Jared," I groan.

His body freezes above me for a fraction of a second. His head lifts out of the crook of my neck to meet my eyes again.

"Do you know how long I've waited to hear you call my name like that?" he whispers.

My hands find their way to his face and mingle with his hair. "There's more where that came from." I shoot him a sexy smirk before pulling his lips back to mine.
