Parker Hayes has just graduated at the top of his class from law school. He has an amazing new job and a killer new bachelor pad. Life is good! It’s damn near perfect. But something is missing. No matter how hard he tries, he hasn’t been able to get Nikki Reese off his mind. The mind-blowing, sex-filled weekend they spent together was more incredible than anything he’s ever experienced. But the brief encounter wasn’t enough, and now Parker finds himself musing over if he’ll ever see Nikki again. Just one more touch… 

Nikki Reese is Holly Spring’s beauty queen. She’s the kind of woman that can smile, taking a man’s breath away, all while flipping him the bird. Pageants are her life and she’s determined to make it to the Miss USA pageant no matter what. No. Matter. What.

He must be The Anchor.

She may feel like she’s shattered into a million little pieces, but he’s about to show her that letting him go again is not an option.

Okay, first of all, thank you B N Toler for gifting me this ARC. I love you for doing this, because I absolutely LOVE your books !!! Seriously, to anyone that reads my reviews, this lady writes some good s@&*!! Her stories come straight from the heart, and they're stories that anyone can easily relate to.
 
Also, I strongly recommend you to read the first book of this series 'The Suit'. It sets this story up since Nikki and Parker have a fling in it. This book had a great flow to it, the romance was incredibly hot, with a believable storyline. I felt so bad for Nikki's character. She was dealt a crappy hand of a childhood, having her mother walk out on she and her father when she was so young, and obviously her father couldn't get over it, so he was cold as ice to her. Hell of a way to grow up. You have 1 parent, but he shows no love or compassion towards you. And that's how Nikki became the woman she is and why she is reserved / closed off when it comes to being in a relationship. She's afraid to open herself up and be loved. ….good thing Parker is relentless... hehehe. Ooooh... Parker. I need a man like him, LOL! I fell in love with his character. He has a very sexy demeanor about him. He's extremely playful, smart, and is absolutely determined to finish what he has started with Nikki Reese.
 
As I read the book, I could just picture his facial expressions and what he'd sound like. Nikki may push his buttons to the max with her hang-ups but thankfully, Parker is all about finishing what he started. And by god if he'll let the woman he loves that is carrying his baby slip thru his fingers for a second time.
 
Nikki is touching me, using me to hold her steady until she collects herself. It's all I want – to be her rock. - Parker Hayes
 


I loved this book and can't wait to see what's in store for Joey and Maddie!!! <3 !
 

 

EXCERPT

Then it hit me.
But no . . . really? It couldn’t be.
But what other explanation could there be?
I had just taken her virginity.
Fuck me.
I walked back into the bathroom and tossed the condom. Cleaning up quickly, I ran a hand through my hair. She’d just lost her virginity on my uncle’s bedroom floor. I am such a fucking asshole. But why wouldn’t she have told me?
I didn’t know how to make this right. But I had to try. When I came back out, she was holding up her torn panties, giving me a pointed look with one brow quirked. “Sorry about that,” I laughed.
“Don’t be,” she chuckled as she bent down to grab her dress. God, her ass was the definition of perfection. To top it off, she still wore her heels and I felt my dick getting hard again.
“Why didn’t you tell me?” I asked.
She didn’t stop to look at me, but continued shaking her dress out. “Does it matter?”
Does it matter? Was she serious? Did she think I was some kind of asshole that wouldn’t have cared? That I wouldn’t have wanted to make it special for her? That pissed me off. “To me, it does,” I seethed.
“It was none of your business.”
“Are you fucking serious right now?” I asked calmly, but the edge to my voice conveyed how much I fucking hated what she’d just said. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me? I feel like an asshole right now.”
This time, she looked at me. “Because I didn’t want you to hold back.”
My anger ebbed slightly. I moved toward her and she pulled the dress to her chest, covering herself. Yanking the outfit from her, I tossed it aside. “If you’d told me, I wouldn’t have held back. A man can be gentle and rough at the same time, Nicole.” Her tongue darted out and she licked her lips as I pulled her to me and pressed our bodies together. “I know we only have tonight, but let me show you. Let me show you how walking that fine line between pain and pleasure can be fucking phenomenal.”
She stared back at me, her bright eyes filled with a curiosity that bordered lust. As I leaned down and kissed her shoulder, she whispered, “Okay.”

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Cover Reveal - The Widow by Colette L. Saucier !!



 

 





Synopsis

When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up everything with it.” – Émile Zola, J’accuse




In this thrilling romantic noir suspense, DEA agent David Alvarez invested four years in deep undercover infiltrating the ruthless Sonora Drug Cartel only to have his primary target gunned down by a rival gang. Now his only hope in salvaging the operation and bringing the largest drug trafficker in the world to justice lies with the man’s beautiful, young widow Catherine, whom he cannot bring himself to trust.

Catherine would do anything to break free from the clutches of the cartel, but despite her desperate efforts, she can never escape the mistakes of her past that continue to haunt her.

Even though he cannot deny their mystical, mutual attraction, David must carry out his orders – from both the DEA and the Cartel – catching Catherine in a spider web of duplicity and deceit.  How far will David go to bring down the cartel? If he succeeds in winning the widow’s trust, would he be willing to risk her life – or his heart?

 

 

About the Author 

 Colette has been writing poems, short stories, and novellas since grade school and experienced early success in having several of her poems published in her junior high school newspaper.  Her interest in literature led her to marry her college English professor, but eventually a love of history encouraged her to trade up to a British historian.

 

Technical writing has dominated Colette’s career for the past twenty years; but finding little room for creativity in that genre, she dedicated fifteen months traveling to Europe and Britain, researching Regency England and vampire lore and literature, to complete her first full-length novel, Pulse and Prejudice (Austenprose Readers’ Choice: Top 5 Books of 2012) - the bestselling paranormal adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, which tells the story of Mr. Darcy, Vampire. Pulse and Prejudice was also selected the 2013 1st Place Winner in Category: Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction.

Colette was named “Debut Author of 2012″ by Austenprose and selected a 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist for her novel The Proud and the Prejudiced (abriged as All My Tomorrows), which was also selected the 2013 “Favorite Modern Adaptation” by Austenesque Reviews and voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2012″ (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Colette’s latest release, the romantic thriller Alicia’s Possession, was the publisher’s #1 Bestselling Romantic Suspense for 4 straight weeks following its debut in June of 2013 and then again in January, 2014, after being voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2013″ (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Her next release is the romantic noir thriller, The Widow, and she is currently researching and writing a sequel to Pulse and Prejudice entitled Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, which follows the newlywed Vampire Darcy and his bride Elizabeth from Britain to Antebellum New Orleans.

Colette lives in South Louisiana with her historian husband and their two dogs.

Sexy Scribblers: Scandalous (Episode 6) by C.A. Szarek



Scandalous
Episode 6 by C.A. Szarek
Website: http://www.caszarek.com/

“Can I ask you something?” Abby shivered as Reed rounded the desk and took a seat, those fabulous green eyes intent on the mini-lab instead of her.
She ignored the disappointment that crashed over her. Things had been hot. What was with the cooling off? Was he really going to play scientist, instead of trying to ravish her?
He finally looked up, and cocked his dark head to one side, then nodded. “Sure.”
“You’re a vampire, right?”
Again, he nodded. “Not a secret, the whole town kinda is.”
“Why do you have a limp?”
“The bullet was silver, and we didn’t get it out fast enough.” He shrugged as if it was nothing, but something darted across his handsome face and had Abby muttering an apology.
She jumped when he stroked her cheek and one corner of his mouth shot up. Abby hadn’t seen him move—again. She had to order herself not to lean into his touch.
“It was a long time ago, I assure you my skills aren’t lacking.”
“I wouldn’t have come to you if I thought they were.”
“Right. Well, let’s get started.” Reed rubbed his hands together, as if in anticipation and took his previous seat.
“Get started?” That was the second time he’d said that.
“Yes.” He hit some buttons on a machine. Red lights shone, and a whirring sound filled the room.
“I thought you were going to help me.” Abby winced at the desperation in her tone. Her heart sped up, and she fought the urge to look around. She was safe here—despite the fact she was with the most powerful vampire in town. Reed wouldn’t let anything happen to her, would he?
“No, I won’t.”
“You read minds, too?” Shit, she’d have to guard her thoughts.
He chuckled, and the warmth of it was like a caress.
Abby squirmed in the chair and squeezed her thighs tight. Desire settled low. She wanted him. A stranger. A vampire. Hoped like hell he couldn’t tell.
Reed’s smirk, and the flare of his nostrils said otherwise.
Her cheeks warmed, and he the fact that he’d not answered was palpable.
“You and I should work out just fine,” he murmured. His voice dropped. It was thicker, more appealing somehow.
“What’d you mean?” she whispered.
“I don’t want your money.”
She straightened, her longing shooting to anger, and Abby popped to her stilettoed feet. “You said you’d help.”
A slow, sexy grin bloomed across Reed’s delicious mouth. Fangs peeked out.
Abby’s heartbeat kicked up. She was in so much trouble.
“I will.”
“So what the hell do you want for payment? I’m not a sex slave. It’s not going to be like that, I don’t care who the hell you think you are.” Her voice rose with each demand, and Abby bristled when Reed came to her side and cupped her face.
He dipped down as if he was going to kiss her.
She stiffened, and cursed her disappointment to hell when his mouth stopped millimeters above hers.
“No worries, little seer, you’ll sleep with me.”
His confidence flared her anger, but Abby couldn’t pull from his hold. He wasn’t hurting her, despite the firm grip. “I will not. And you’re still being obtuse.”
Reed laughed. His green eyes twinkled.
Abby glared.



“I needed your blood because it’s how you’re going to pay me. You’re going to bond with me.”

Episode 5 by Luanna Stewart

Abby watched Reed’s eyes darken, and at the same time heard the door lock click into place.
Holy shit, batman. She'd heard stories about vampires being able to control stuff with thoughts, but she'd never witnessed it. The other vampires she'd met over the years had been too eager to stay under the radar, keep their secret powers secret.
"Um...what do you think you're doing?" She had a pretty good idea, but there was no way in hell she was going to be this guy's breakfast. Even if he was drop dead gorgeous. Damn, poor choice of words.
"Oh, I think you know exactly what I have in mind." He crossed to a wall cabinet and took out a metal tray holding medical equipment. "But first we need to take care of preliminary screening." He snapped on a pair of blue surgical gloves.
She tried to laugh. This wasn't really happening, was it? "Shouldn't we just ask each other about our sexual history or something?"
He grinned. "Oh we'll get to that too. Now be a good girl and roll up your sleeve."
She was used to weird shit, given the weirdoes she hung around with, and the even weirder weirdoes she encountered as Sitara. She rolled up the sleeve of her blouse and turned her head away.
"This won't hurt a bit." He chuckled as he tied a strip of rubber around her arm. "Well, this part won't hurt. And I've yet to hear complaints from my other...lovers."
"I'm not hiring you to be my—" She jumped as the needle pierced her flesh. So much for not hurting. She dared a glance at her arm and was surprised to see him filling a third vial. "What the hell do you need all that blood for?"
He deftly finished and sat again behind the desk. Seeming to ignore her question, he divided the blood from one tube into other tubes and added drops of various liquids. Then, he pulled off his gloves.
"Now, we have time to chat. When was your last sexual encounter, and with whom?"
"Look, I want you as a bodyguard, not a gigolo." Not that she would kick him out of her bed, but he was taking all the romance out of it.
Without seeming to move, he appeared at her side, clasped her arms and pulled her from the chair. His nostrils flared as he leaned closer. Close enough for her to feel the cold heat from his body. Whoa, that didn't make any sense. How was heat cold?
"I don't smell a man on you."
All she could do was shake her head. She looked into his eyes, dark and mysterious, and couldn't look away. A feeling of peace, contentment, comfort filled her mind, and body. Hell, she felt fabulous, like she was floating on a warm cloud of massaging brilliance. He lowered his head toward her neck, and she tensed. Shit, this was really happening, and she didn’t care. She wanted to stay on the cloud. But, all she felt was the soft brush of his lips.
"Relax, my sweet. You will know when it's time." He gently bit her earlobe and released her arms, letting her settle in the chair. She wanted to cry.
He glanced at the small laboratory atop his desk and smiled. "Yes, very good. Let's get started."
