✾ Synopsis ✾


(Stand alone)

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

✿ My Review ✿





Liam + Megan = ❤

Liam Beckett has been drawn to Megan since he met her. He soon realizes that she is the one for him. But he has to work hard for her to let him in because Megan has been living in the darkness since her husband died and the only light in her life is her daughter Molly.
Will Megan let Liam in or will continue living in the darkness?

Bleeding Love is an amazing book with a very sweet and compeling story. It hooked me from the first page and I couldn't stop reading. Bleeding Love takes the reader in a rollercoaster ride of emotions: it has drama, laughter, angst and very hot scenes.




Liam Beckett is his father's son! He is so sweet, kind, gentle and patient, but also very protective, possessive and fierce. And also very hot!!! He is the total alpha male and you can't help but fall in love with him. All he wants is a love like his parents have and he knows Megan is the one for him. He is very persistent but he still understands why she is reluctant to let him in. Swoon! ♥
Megan has been through a rough time. She had a complicated childhood and a bad things happened to her that led her to marry her best friend. She feels guilty that she is alive and the he died and can only find happiness with her daughter. She falls for Liam but is afraid to let him. She is a very strong woman, a survivor, but also very compasionate.

Again, Harper Sloan wrote an amazing book with a captivating story and awesome characters. Her writing style is perfect and it hooks the reader from the first page. Can't wait to read the rest of the Hope Town series, especially Nate's story. Loved him!







✿ Excerpt ✿


His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, "Dig your heels in deep, baby."

I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.

Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other's probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn't an ounce of control left in his body.

He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn't match the powerful way that he's taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn't pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.

I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.

His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. "Feels like heaven,” he says softly. "Everything, darlin'. Feels like everything."








✿ The Series ✿


Unexpected Fate
Hope Town #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say... it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

Axel
Corps Security #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Fate hasn't always been friends with Isabelle West. In fact, fate has been a downright bitch.

Isabelle has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn't by your side. It can hand you dreams on silver platters, but it can snatch them right back and hand you nightmares. One thing Isabelle knew for sure fate was consistent with was taking away everything she ever loved.

For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle... her ex-husband.

When problems start causing her to fear her new life, and memories that are better left forgotten start rushing to the surface the last thing she needs is a ghost from her past to come knocking on her door.

Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn’t sure he wanted to now. He's carried his anger for so long he isn't sure he can just turn it off, but when he is faced with protecting her and an unexpected desire to have her again, life gets a little more complicated.

How will Axel and Isabelle deal when all their cards are put on the table and everything they thought was true blows up in their faces?

Cage
Corps Security #2





✾ Synopsis ✾


Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister's shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around... until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes an unexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

Beck
Corps Security #3





✾ Synopsis ✾


Dee
I've always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real me. I'm content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man.

But the truth is I'm just as broken as the rest of you. I'm terrified that all it will take is one person to make all my carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. So I guard my heart with everything I have. Determined to never let anyone get close enough to hurt me again.

All is perfect until HE walks into my life. No... he doesn't just walk. He struts his good-looking, sex-oozing self right into my space and demands that I see HIM. Making me want what I know I can't have.

So I did the only thing I know how to do.
I run.
But he just won't let me go.

Beck
The second I see her, I know she will be mine. I see past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter. I see HER. She doesn't want me to know her secrets or the past that haunts her, but I make it my mission to find out.

To make her mine.

She can run all she wants, but it will never be far enough to stop me from coming after her.
She's it for me and she knows it.
She's just too scared to admit it.

No cliffhanger, HEA, inter-connected standalones. This book is intended for a mature reading.

Will he be able to handle the stress of knowing his wife and newborn daughters are beyond his protection?

Join the Cage family as they embark on yet another one of life's journeys with a rambunctious four-year-old, pregnancy complications, and the fear of the unknown.

Cooper
Corps Security #4





✾ Synopsis ✾


Do you take me seriously? Because I don't. I use my jokes and easygoing personality to hide the pain I've felt since he took his last breath. I'm adrift without my partner in crime, my best friend…my brother. I can taste the vengeance just within my grasp.

Until she barges into my life. Promising me happiness and a peace I've been craving for years. She is the sun to my darkness, the happy to my despair.

But she holds secrets. Just like I do. She holds hers close, where I just pray mine don't rock the walls we're trying to build.

Now I'm stuck at a crossroads between my desire for revenge and my craving for her and the life we could have together — and I have no idea which road I should travel.

All I know with crystal clear certainty is that the past has the power to destroy it all.

No cliffhanger. This book is not suitable for younger readers. There is strong language, adult situations, and some violence.

Locke
Corps Security #5





✾ Synopsis ✾


Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.

I tried to keep others at arm's length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone.

If I hadn't been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn't have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin — refusing to let go. Making me want things I don't deserve.

She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she's near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I'm convinced I'll destroy if I ever let her close.

I'm a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn't stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.

Jaded Hearts
Loaded Replay #1

Release Date: September/October 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Signing with Brighthouse Records was supposed to be everything we ever wanted — our better life. Our chance at everything we never had but always wanted. All our dreams would finally come true and we were on top of the world. It was our chance at the happiness we never had in life.

Our every desire was at our fingertips and the power of that feeling was all consuming. But then it took every dream we thought would come true and it slapped us in the face with the cold hard reality.

Dreams were just that... something that floated on the cusp of untouchable, taunting you with every graze of your fingertips before slipping even further away.

Happiness... that feeling is a joke.

In the end it became painfully obvious that each of us would always have each other, but we would forever be alone.









✿ The Author ✿

Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero - the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

A Taste of Summer
by
Beverly Preston

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Release Date: July 21st 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Most people know Hollywood heartthrob, Ryan Summer, as Ryan, no last name required. But once upon a time, he was just Summer to Carrie Ann — before a decade of blockbuster hits skyrocketed his success into superstardom.

Summer was smart, gorgeous, and cocky as hell. Nothing was out of his reach. Not even Carrie Ann Lowell. He was the love of her life — until he shattered her heart. Their breakup left more than a profound rift in her soul. It crushed her.

When Carrie Ann's college flame forces his way back into her life, his dirty-talking, bold self-assurance re-ignites a passion she thought had long since been extinguished. Carrie Ann didn't believe in second chances.

Not even for him.

No matter how deliciously tempting.

With sparks flying and hidden truths unraveling, will Carrie Anne be able to deny her desires to save herself from another heart break?

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Summer, are you awake?" Scoffing at her own ridiculous question, she eased a hip onto the edge of his mattress so she could reach him.

He stirred restlessly, rearranging the arm above his head.

Carrie Ann extended an arm, the flat of her hand hovered above his chiseled physique, deciding where to touch him. The outline of muscular thigh bent to the side beneath the silky fabric. Temptation, powerful in its force, pulled at her hand like a magnet.

A shiver ran through her.

Warily, she touched her icy fingers his warm shoulder. "Summer?"

His eyes jarred wide with alarm. Summer lunged upright, swiftly grasping onto her upper arm. "Carrie Ann?"

"Yeah, it's me," she croaked. A fine layer of perspiration spread across her skin, dampening the thin material of her cotton tank top.

Mere inches separated their faces. He looked bewildered, blinking repeatedly to see if she was real. His hands wandered to the underside of her jaw, cupping her face. The confusion in his eyes replaced with lust. His fingers delved into her thick mane, gently clasping the base of her skull. The pressure felt divinely good.

"You came to me?" Hope clouded his whisper. His moist breath, rough and strained, drifting across her cheek on a billowy cloud.

Unable to make a coherent sentence, she sat silent, panting and quaking from head to toe. Her hands came to his arms, securing to his wrists, uncertain if she wanted to hold them there or pull them away. Aspen scampered from her lap taking ownership of his pillow.

Thunder roared through the black sky in a long drawn-out rumble, delivering a strike of lightning beyond his window. Her clammy fingers tugged at the dusting of dark hair covering his wrists as she squeezed, digging her nails into the flesh.

Summer dropped his forehead against hers. All the air pushed from his lungs in a deep, disillusioned sound of sympathy.

"Christ. It's the lightning?" He drew her into his chest, arms closed around her, stroking her hair and back. "Come here, Red."

She nodded weakly and went limp against him. Gripped by fear, her arms quaked violently, curling around his shoulders. Carrie Ann shimmied to get closer. Summer held her safe and secure, offering constant reassurance. "It's okay. I'm right here. I got you, Red."

Over the years, she'd tried cognitive behavioral techniques to calm her fear: soothing massages, visualization exercises, talking herself through the panic, but nothing calmed her nerves like the feeling of Summer's embrace.

Clutching her shoulders, he coaxed her a few inches from his body. "You want to climb in here with me?"

Glimpsing downward at the sheet pooled around his very naked hips, she shook her head hotly. Her breathing slowly began to regulate, anxiously waiting for the next strike. She trembled from head to toe, peeling her nails from the muscles flanking his spine. "W... will you come sit with me in the living room?"

"Sure."

Fisting the covers, he moved around her and stepped out of bed. Naked. Staring straight ahead, her lips parted releasing a small gasp, completely mesmerized by the sight of him, semi erect getting harder before her eyes. A shiver tingled up her spine, feeling the ghost of his hand slipping firmly into the mass of hair at her nape. She knew she should look away, but loneliness left her yearning for comfort.

Taking notice of her fascination, he paused. A quirk ticked the corner of his mouth. Summer caressed the side of her face, pinching her chin between his finger and thumb. Her mouth willingly opened a little wider.

"It's not like you haven't seen it before," Summer repeated her words.

His voice slipped over her like the comfort of a favorite blanket, pulling a faint groan from her throat. Begrudgingly, she flicked her eyes upward finding his, but only for a moment. Her gaze dropped to the thick, jutting column protruding from a perfectly trimmed nest of dark hair. Twinges of need stabbed at her core, her chest needled with warning, and her mouth watered.

A flash of lightning weaved across the sky, slamming to the ground. The thunder ricocheted throughout her body. Summer pulled her to her feet and into his arms. The hot, solid length of him, rested against her abdomen with only a thin barrier of cotton between them.

"Your choice, Red. Would you like me to get dressed? Or if you'd prefer I can undress you. We can lay wherever you'd like. In front of the fire, my bed, your bed, the couch, the kitchen table... Hmm? It's your call."

The double question struck low in her abdomen, wickedly fingering a pleasure cord as if plucking pizzicato on a cello. The internal vibration wracked her head and heart in confusion. She'd built a barricade around her heart, safeguarding her raw emotions. Being near him the last few days chipped away at the armor. She didn't know what she wanted. That's a lie, Carrie Ann Lowell. You know exactly where you want him. As she instinctually licked her lips, she could feel the look of torment etching over her face. Her heart felt as if it were sitting on the stump outside waiting to be chopped in two, but her fucking vagina was ready to give the acceptance speech of a lifetime. I'd like to accept this penis...

He spoke into the curve of her scalp. "Let me throw some pants on and we'll go lay on the couch. Okay?"

She nodded hotly, staying right beside him as he stepped into his walk-in closet.








✿ Teaser Quotes ✿


"I don't want to be your friend, Carrie Ann." She heard him murmur. He raised to his feet, playing with her fingers before letting them loose, dropping his hand at his side. "I want to be your everything."

**********

"You own my heart. You always have. Everything else has just been white noise filling in the blank spaces."

**********

"Fuck, I've missed you," he growled, burying his face in the crook of her neck. His mouth wandered hungrily over her throat as he filled her. "The way you say my name... Christ, Red, I have waited so long to hear the sounds you make when I'm inside you."

**********

"Everything I've been through has made me a better man…and you deserve the best version of me that I can possibly give you, Red."
