Abducted at gunpoint by a gorgeous woman…


Navy SEAL Cody “Cowboy” McCormick is in Las Vegas for a little R & R before his friend’s wedding when a beautiful blonde jams a gun in his side and abducts him from a casino in broad daylight. He could stop her, but he plays along because he’s intrigued—plus he’s convinced she’s in danger.

CIA agent Miranda Lockwood’s life is on the line when an undercover operation goes wrong. Little does she know when she sashays up to the biggest, baddest looking dude in the casino lobby that she’s kidnapping a Navy SEAL—or that she’ll be unable to resist his charm when he turns up the heat.

When the CIA labels her a rogue agent, Miranda’s faith in everything she believes in is shaken to the core. Cody’s the only one she can trust to help her find the traitor in the agency. But even though she’s forced to betray him, she can’t get over the SEAL who made her feel safe in his arms. Miranda will have to fight harder than she’s ever fought for anything if she wants his forgiveness—but Cody’s not in a forgiving mood in spite of the sparks that still fly when he’s forced to team up with her again.

When disaster strikes and they’re caught in the line of fire, Cody will do everything in his power to keep them both alive. Because if he doesn’t, he’ll never get to hold Miranda close again…

Excerpt
Her gaze dropped to his mouth. Those lips begged to be kissed. They were firm, smooth, and sensual. She imagined them against hers, imagined how they would feel and taste.

“Miranda.”

She snapped her attention to his eyes again. They were still blue, still clear—but now they gleamed hotly, their depths intense.

“Yes?” She tried to make the word innocent, clueless.
“I just saw you naked. I’m not likely to forget that sight anytime soon. And while I didn’t come over here to be a douche and make a move on you while you’re upset, if you keep looking at me like I’m something you’d like to saddle up and ride, I’m going to oblige your curiosity.”

New YA Release | Lead Heart (Seraph Black #3) by Jane Washington | #NEW #YA #UrbanFantasy @givemebooksblog


Title: Lead Heart
Series: Seraph Black #3
Author: Jane Washington
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy Romance
Release Date: September 23, 2016


Blurb

“The paint dripped off me like a liquid coat and I inhaled the toxic fumes, sucking the undiluted scent into my lungs. My pupils dilated as I sank into the vision of a pain so absolute, it went beyond pain. It should have rendered me unconscious, it should have affected my ability, it felt like it should have killed me. As it was, the pain distracted me so badly that I was unable to focus on any other details. I painted turquoise wounds that wept turquoise blood onto the paper floor, and when I was finished, I painted more. I painted the walls, the floor, the back of the door and the boarded-up windows. I covered the room in wounds and fumes, and then I curled up in the middle of the mess, weeping my heart into my paint-covered hands.”


The past few months have reduced Seraph Black to a permanent state of fight, and now it is all that she knows. She is fighting her friends and family to go off on a suicide mission to rescue Silas, she is fighting the fragmented memories that clamour for recognition inside her mind, and she is fighting a guilt so magnificent… it might just force her to betray the very people that have sacrificed so much to keep her safe.


She had asked for space, and it had been given to her in the most heart-rending of ways, leaving only one of the four brothers remaining by her side.


Miro Quillan is her last hope.

Without him, she may never get her pairs back.

She's dependent on the moon to write, and she's dependent on coffee so that she can spend as much time with the moon as possible. She's dependent on both writing and anti-social behaviour to each act as an excuse for the other, and she's dependent on the awkwardness of both to save her from questions.


I.e.: 'Why do you never come to parties?'

'It's a writer's thing. We hate parties.'

She has a dependency on the internet to prevent too much work from getting done on any given day, and an even bigger dependency on Disney movies, to keep the dream alive.

I find the love letters in my new dorm room, left behind by a previous occupant. 

They're meant for someone else, but the words speak to me. They slide off the page and wrap themselves around my body, touching me in places I never knew existed. 

I'm falling in love with each word, unable to stop myself. 

And I don't even know his name. 

Until they tell me. 

His name is Judson Devereux. They say he’s toxic. Falling for him will be a mistake. 

I want to believe them. I want to walk away. But the words refuse to be erased from the invisible parts of me. 

I'm hooked on the scent of his poison. It’s bad for me. It could kill me. But I’m in too deep.

Excerpt

“Let me up,” she said as calmly as she could. She felt as if he had struck her. The ease with which he so readily disregarded her feelings for him burned a path through her insides, leaving her in physical pain.


“No, not until you submit to me and admit you need my protection.”

Amira knew she didn’t have the strength to force him off her, so she did the only thing she could think of; she lifted her head from the floor and brought her lips to his. She kissed him with all of the anger, frustration, hurt feelings, and above all, the love she couldn’t help but feel. His whole body turned to stone above hers, but he didn’t pull away. He stayed very still and seemed to stop breathing.

Amira knew it might be her only chance to ever kiss him, so she decided she would allow herself to savor it for the moment. She opened her mouth and caressed his closed lips with her tongue invitingly. At his low growl, she did it again, only this time he opened his mouth in acceptance and began to kiss her back, his whole body relaxing into the kiss. She brought her hand up and ran her fingers through his long hair like she’d always wanted to. She had planned the kiss only to be a distraction, but it turned out to be something far more.


Before she was completely lost, she reminded herself of her original purpose. Easing back, she brushed her lips against his and whispered, “I’m sorry.”

She brought her right knee up quickly and made contact with the sensitive juncture between his legs. Using all of her strength to push him off, she rolled out from beneath him, made it to her feet, and stood over him.

“You taught me that because I’m smaller, I need to use any means necessary. I’m sorry, but that was necessary. If you don’t need me in return, then I won’t allow myself to need you.”

Happy Reading!


He turned and saw Zac talking to Mason, then two guys from the road crew standing nearby stepped aside and that's when Fizzbo saw him standing by himself over by the coffee and food table. It seemed to happen in slow motion, as if the gathered crowd had purposefully parted and an overhead spotlight suddenly began to shine down like a ray of sunshine from heaven to illuminate the man.

Kensey.

Fizzbo's breath caught in his throat when Kensy's eyes collided with his. The beautiful golden man-child with the striking facial features and lean muscled body who had stolen Fizzbo's sanity and occupied almost all his head space while in Europe was once again standing in the same room as him. Kensey was the only one Fizzbo hadn't been able to connect with since the fire. It seemed once their names were splashed all over the news as being survivors of the Berlin fire, Kensey had fallen off the face of the earth. Seeing the gorgeous man standing here now, Fizzbo wasn't sure if he should be more relieved to see him or annoyed Kensey had ignored his phone messages.

It took several seconds, but finally Fizzbo managed to get his feet moving forward. His eyes never left Kensey and with each step that brought them closer, his heart rate increased tenfold. Finally Fizzbo stood in front of Kensey. His eyes hungrily canvassed every inch of Kensey's face and neck . . . and those luscious lips. Jesus, how he ached for a taste of that mouth. Fizzbo's eyes finally lifted to Kensey's. He looked the same – but different. Older perhaps, if that was even possible, since it'd only been a month. Or maybe it was worry and stress that seemed to crease Kensey's face. And then one detail sliced through his brain.

“You cut your hair,” Fizzbo said in a rush of air.

Kensey's long fingers quickly went to his shorter style. It was almost buzzed on the sides of his head and longer on the top with hair product in it to keep it tame and voluminous. “I kinda had to cut it after the fire,” Kensey's soft voice said. “Don't you remember? It was all singed on the ends from the fire. The only way to fix that mess was to have it cut off. It'll grow back soon enough.”

“I like it short,” Fizzbo said, and damn if his fingers didn't itch to touch the new, shorter length. “Your face is too . . . perfect, to keep it hidden behind long hair.” Kensey blushed from the compliment and that made Fizzbo smile.

“I thought you were about to call me pretty,” Kensey's smooth voice was like a caress.

“Well, if the shoe fits . . . ”

“Don't say it,” Kensey grinned.

“No?” Fizzbo countered. “Definitely not.”

Fizzbo liked knowing he could get the color to rise in Kensey's face. He wondered if he'd be able to get other things to rise on Kensey, but tamped down that thought when he felt his own body begin to react to the very same thought. All these weeks after they'd met in Europe during the tour and Fizzbo was still walking around with a major hard-on for the guy. If the fire hadn't happened when it did, he'd planned on asking Kensey out for a drink after one of their shows, but life has a way of changing plans like that. Now Fizzbo felt like he was starting all over again with trying to get to know this majestic man.

Zac's Mulligan

ZAC BOOK 1

Zac Mulligan is a former Marine now providing personal security for the infamous rock band, Black Ice. Seeing all the guys around him in committed relationships reminds him of his childhood best friend . . . the only person Zac has never managed to get out of his head or his heart.

Ben Holland is an artist. Falling deeply in love with his best friend in his teens, Ben is left alone when Zac leaves him for the military. Ben heads off to college and lives his life “out and proud” as a gay man and creates a brand name for himself with his artwork. Throughout all the years that pass, Ben never forgets his childhood friend, Zac, or the feelings they once shared.

Zac realizes a decade is too long for Ben not to have a presence in his life and finds Ben living on Cape Cod where they spent their summers as kids. Meeting each other as adults stirs up a lot of memories for both of them.

Zac is looking for a mulligan, a “do over,” with his childhood best friend. The question is: Can Ben find a way to put aside his old hurts and fully open his heart to Zac for a second time? Or maybe the past is something better left buried on the beach where it all began.
