Daniel has been best friends with Rose since they were born. He's been in love with her for years. The only problem? She has no idea, and he's not about to tell her and ruin their friendship.

✿ Excerpt ✿


The night is nothing short of perfect. The air is warm, there's barely any wind, and the moon is young, so the sky is dark, laced with thousands of stars. We find our spot along the beach, well away from the other stargazers, and set down our sleeping bags, a couple of blankets, and our cooler.

Our eighties playlist is playing softly in the background while we enjoy the night. Daniel takes photos, and every so often he shows me an image he's caught on camera. I'm in awe. He really is amazing. The way he sees the world is so different from how most of us do – angles and frames and visions that capture the beauty of everything that surrounds us, including the stars. Even in the dark, I can see a twinkle in his eyes, that same look he has when he picks up his camera. Confident. In charge. Sexy.

I squeeze in between Daniel and the telescope and lean into the eyepiece. I'm instantly fascinated by what I see. The star flickers like it's dancing in the sky. There are hues of red and orange and gold, and it sparkles like a gem.

I'm equally distracted because Daniel is standing right behind me. He hasn't moved an inch. His chest presses against my back, and I tense for a moment, unsure of his intent. His scent makes its way to me, and my eyes flutter closed for an instant. I inhale and savor the way he makes me feel. My initial tense reaction gives way to a new one – one that confuses me and excites me all at the same time. Goosebumps cover my arms, and my breath hitches in my throat. I can't help but shiver from the sparks that travel through my body.

His response is not what I expect. Yet, even though I'm afraid to admit it to myself, it's quite possibly what I hoped for. He wraps his arms around me so they criss-cross just above my waist. He starts to rub my arms, warming my skin and melting the goosebumps – and my whole body. My mind is screaming, Do not cross the friendship boundary! No good can come of it. Thank goodness for my sensible brain. Too bad I don't always listen to it.

On that thought, I can't help but relax into him. His strong, lean frame envelops me, and I'm aware of the contours of his body and the heat that radiates between us. I nestle into his shoulder and look up at the stars above us. He buries his nose in my hair and inhales deeply. Here, away from the city lights, it seems as though it's just Daniel and me and our newfound closeness.

"Hey, there's a shooting star." I point to where it's trailing across the sky. "Did you see it?"

"Hope you made a wish," he whispers in my ear, and I swear his lips graze my skin. I shiver again, unable to control my reaction.

✾ Synopsis ✾


From debut author Helena Rac, a sassy, sexy comic tale of second-chance romance and the many uses of icing. Tessa loves cupcakes. They're tasty and comforting, and they've made her bakery a success. Men, on the other hand, are unreliable jerks who are bound to break her heart. Even if they're hot enough to melt her frosting. Tessa is smitten with Luke after a less than graceful encounter on the streets of Chicago, and fate keeps reuniting them. She's certain he'd be delicious in bed, but there's just one problem: Tessa's sworn off long-distance romances, and Luke lives in London. Besides, he's proven himself to be bad news. Although Tessa's sexy stranger swears to set aside his player ways after she carries out sweet revenge, she's far too smart to believe in happily-ever-afters. Luke will need to use every weapon in his arsenal - including a spatula or two - to convince Tessa they're meant to be together.

Lost Rider
Coming Home #1
by
Harper Sloan

Release Date: April 25th 2017





✾ Synopsis ✾


In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan's Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he's off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he's never taken much of a shine to, but now that it's his late father's legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick's childhood — his younger sister's best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick's life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen — and Maverick can't help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

✿ Excerpt ✿


I should tell Quinn and Clay that he's here. But one look at him and it's like the last ten years have never passed and I'm back at the bonfire, the awkward high schooler uncomfortable in her own skin. Marching away from him in the woods. It was the last time I saw him. How is it possible that he can affect me this much after all this time?

He hasn't noticed me, not with his head bowed, so I quickly turn around and focus on Pastor John as he finishes up his prayer. Him being here means nothing. I should be happy that I remember the pain from that night so well, it will make keeping my walls up around him so much easier.

"On behalf of the Davis family, I want to thank everyone for coming today. At this time, the family has asked for some time alone as they say their good-byes. They wanted me to remind everyone that the PieHole will be opening up for a few hours tonight starting at five for anyone that wishes to join them."

I keep my arm around Quinn, not looking back to where I saw Maverick. I can hear the church slowly emptying and I feel a frown pull at my lips. I had hoped that when everyone started to leave that he would have come up front to be with his family, but so far, the pew we're in is still empty save for the three of us. We sit and wait for everyone to leave, something that Clay had asked Pastor John to make arrangements for in place of the customary recessional, knowing that no one in this town would really mean a word of it anyway. Plus, I know Quinn is having a hard time. Regardless of the fact that she wasn't the closest with her father, she was really counting on this — Maverick home. She's still shaking in my arms, but when I look over at Clay I realize his silence isn’t because of the heaviness of Buford's death, but instead anger over his brother's absence that has started to build to a boil. I fear that he's seconds away from tipping over the edge.

I stand when Clay and Quinn do, but hang back at the edge of the row we had been sitting in as they meet Pastor John and gather their father's ashes. I can't wait to get out of these heels. If it would have been acceptable to wear my boots, I would have, but Quinn would have killed me. As it is, I feel like I can't take a deep breath with how tight my dress is against my chest. I never wear tight shirts. I haven't since my boobs became beasts of their own right. I'm too busy fiddling with the straps of my dress, trying desperately to get some of the pressure against my chest to ease up so I could take a deep breath, when I heard Quinn gasp.

"Mav!" Next thing I know she's running past where I'm standing, her black hair streaming in the air behind her as she speeds forward right into her brother's arms. Clay moves to stand next to me and I look up to meet his green eyes, the questions he isn't vocalizing dancing in their emerald depths. He’s not stupid and I'm doing a crappy job at hiding the memories haunting me right now. He gives me a small smile, shifting his hold on the urn to wrap his free arm around me and pulls me into a strong hold.

"You're shakin',” he says against my temple and I just nod.

"I'm good, Clay. Go see your brother."

"I'm fine right where I am, sugar."

I keep my eyes to the ground, focusing on his worn boots instead of looking up, hating myself for making this moment about me when I should be focused on them. Like it or not, I can't fight the feelings that being near him bring me. I'm that stupid, naive sixteen-year-old all over again. "Let's get out of here," he says after a few silent seconds. I look up and give him a smile, hoping that it looks a hell of a lot braver than I feel. Inside I feel like I might puke.

"You think I could have a second with my family?"

My head shoots up at the coldness I hadn't anticipated in Maverick's voice. He's not focused on me, though, instead looking at his brother with a hard expression and one brow raised upward.

"Mav!" Quinn gasps and he moves his attention from his brother to her.

"Sorry, Quinn, but I'm thinkin' that Clay's lady friend would understand that this should be a moment for our family and give us time alone."

"I'll just—"

"Don't you dare finish that sentence, sugar," Clay all but spits through clenched teeth and drops his arm to take a step forward. "You've got something to say, Mav, then say it."

"Nothing to say, Clayton, I just think it would be nice for your girlfriend to give us some space."

"My girlfriend," he parrots sarcastically, his deep voice vibrating in anger.

"Mav." Quinn attempts to butt in, but stops when Maverick leaves her side and turns to stalk out of the church. I should find it comical that he obviously didn't recognize me, or hell, maybe he did and he's just picking up where he left off ten years ago in the middle of the dark woods. I take a deep breath. "It's okay. He's right. Y'all need some time as a family. I'll head over to the PieHole and start settin' up for tonight."

Quinn brushes a tear from her cheek and just shakes her head. I look at Clay to see him staring in the direction that his brother just left.

"You're family," he finally says, not looking in my direction.

"Clay, really, it's okay. It's been a long time since y'all were back together and I don't need to be there for that reunion. It sucks that it takes all of this to finally bring him home, but he's here and y'all need to make up for a lot of time lost."

"Shut up, Leighton."

"Don't, Clay."

"Don't what? You've got every right to be here. You're just as much a part of our family as he is. Hell, maybe even more so than he is at this point. So just shut up, come with us, and ignore him."

I shake my head, the fight instantly leaving my sails, knowing I would be arguing until the end of time if I pressed this issue.

"I can't believe he doesn't even recognize you," Quinn whispers.

Kiss My Boots
Coming Home #2
by
Harper Sloan

Release Date: Summer 2017





✾ Synopsis ✾


In this second of the sultry, Western-set Coming Home series from New York Times bestselling author Harper Sloan, Quinn Davis might finally have a shot at her own happily-ever-after — but will she let love in, or will she tell it to go ahead and kiss her boots?

Quinn Davis prefers to live her life quietly. She's the stereotypical tomboy with two overprotective big brothers who have always been there to protect her, especially from devilishly handsome cowboys with silver tongues. That is, until Tate Montgomery comes riding into town. Their first meeting, however, is far from something out of a fairy tale and only further convinces Quinn that men aren't worth her time.

The only place Tate Montgomery ever truly felt at home growing up was during the long, sweltering summer months he spent at his Gram and Paw's farm in Pine Oak, Texas. Now, Tate has returned to his childhood sanctuary seeking a fresh start — but if he's being entirely honest, he's not just back for the wranglers and Stetsons. During those summers, Quinn was a friend-turned-young-love who Tate lost when life threw him a curveball and he cut all ties to his past; but all it takes is one glance at the raven-haired beauty he did his best to forget for him to realize just how much he's been missing...

✿ Excerpt ✿


My phone chirped with an incoming text. I smiled at Pete, Officer Daniels, and held up the phone. "I'll just be a minute. It's probably Billy."

Pete let go of the restaurant door he'd been holding open for me. "He still mad you didn't let him come for graduation?" After spending the summer with Pete's family, I'd decided to stay for my senior year, a decision my father didn't understand and still wasn't happy about.

"I think he's coming around," I said. Billy had wanted to attend to my high-school graduation. But the thought of my famous father in small town Beaverton, Oregon near all my friends figuratively made me break out in hives.

Pete nodded. "All right, but don't take too long. We're excited to celebrate with you."

"Got it." I smiled brightly. My gown fluttered in the early summer wind, I'd left my cap in the car. "Tell Gabe to save me a seat next to him." Pete and Mel's son Gabe had graduated with me and was set for a full-ride football scholarship to OSU. As for me, I'd be off to New York in a few weeks to attend college. Strolling the sidewalk, I peeked at my phone. It wasn't my father.

Mystery number: Hi.
Me: Hi. Who's this?
Mystery number: Warren Price. Remember me?

If it's possible for your heart to fall straight out of your chest, mine did.

Me: Yeah. How'd you get my number?
Warren: I know people who know people.
Me: Huh?
Warren: It's the digital age, babe. Not hard to find someone's phone number. The right YouTube video and I could give myself a vasectomy.
Me: Would you really do that?
Warren: What?
Me: Give yourself a vasectomy?
Warren: Hell, no. But I could.
Warren: You still there?
Me: It's been a long time.
Warren: Sorry about that. Been thinking about you, though.
Me: Yeah?
Me: I don't think this is a good idea, you and me talking. Billy doesn't want us to be friends.
Warren: I disagree. I think this is the best idea I've ever had. Besides, last time I checked we were a little more than friends. What you been up to?
Me: In a nutshell? Billy sent me away to live in BFE. Since then... Went to school dances. Drank my first bottle of peach schnapps. Saw Twilight four times.
Warren: Damn. That's a lot of living for a small town.
Me: I know. Mind blown, right? How about you, what have you been up to?
Warren: Got booted from Billy's celestial limelight just like you, working the dive bar circuit again.
Me: Ouch. Sorry.
Warren: Not your fault.
Warren: Shit. Got to go. About to the take the stage at a honkey-tonk in Nashville. This should be interesting. We don't play country.
Me: All right.
Warren: Okay if I text you again?
Me: Thumbs up.
Warren: Did you just text me the words: thumbs up?
Me: Yep. My emoji button is broken. Sad face.
Warren: Okay then.
Me: Okay.
