Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: January 28, 2020

Cover of FashionJungle_eBook_HighRes.jpg

Fashion Jungle, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Iconic Supermodel, now Global Business Mogul, Kathy Ireland and #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken.

Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world. 

Welcome to the Jungle. 

As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the “good girl.” The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot… only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.

The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment… with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage. 

Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.

 

And then there’s Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever. 

In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell – though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss. 

 

Strap on your stilettos, it’s about to get wild.

Based on true stories.

Blog Tour Teaser.jpg

Excerpt:

     “I think I may come here every night.”

     “Be my guest,” Dane said, looking away as if he were bored; when in reality, his heart was racing.

     Frederick would crack. His shirt was open now, his eyes closed. The habit would continue as it always did. Wouldn’t it?

     He would self-destruct.

     All men eventually did when it came to Dane.

     The ones who didn’t, well… they weren’t alive to say otherwise, now, were they?

     “Have fun.” Dane stood, patted Frederick on the back, and shared a knowing look with the woman currently straddling the man’s lap. “Make it worth his while but remember our rules.”

     Dane shoved the guilt aside as he walked off.

     The guilt of what this would do to Everlee.

     Then again, Everlee didn’t know what he did.

     She didn’t know the secrets Frederick kept.

     That he wasn’t who she thought he was.

     Then again, nobody really did.

     Only Dane.

     Because he’d collected everything he could on Frederick for a year and was less than impressed by the sort of man he was.

     “Interesting club,” Ronan said once Dane reached the bar. He was flanked by two bodyguards.

     “They aren’t necessary,” Dane said in an unemotional voice, pointing to the security. “No weapons allowed, no fighting, only pleasure.”

     “And yet, here you are, talking to me.” Ronan leveled him with a glare. “What do you want, Dane?”

     “Is that how you speak to an old friend?”

     Ronan let out a snort. “We’ve never been friends. We’ve only tolerated each other because of the girls.”

     The girls.

     It was how they all referred to Brittany, Everlee, Zoe and Danica. Pain sliced through Dane’s heart, he couldn’t even say her name in his head without feeling it everywhere, all the way down to the marrow.

     Shake it off.

     They were women now.

     Women with secrets.

     Insecurities.

     Girls who’d grown up too fast.

     Females who were still fighting their way through the jungle of New York, barefoot and bleeding with fake smiles and deadly secrets.

     “I need you to keep him in jail,” Dane said under his breath. “They say he’s getting out on good behavior.”

     Ronan muttered a curse. “Let me guess, you want me to go have a golf game with the DA?”

     “If you think that would help.” Dane tilted his head and narrowed his eyes on the politician, the man he used to trust as much as everyone else before Dane’s world came crumbling down around him by way of his sister’s death. “Then, yes.”

     “Fine. This makes us even.” Ronan tried to walk off, but Dane grabbed him by the elbow and held him there, whispering in a low voice, “I will never be done with you… tell the former first lady hello. I loved what she was wearing while shopping on Fifth Avenue yesterday, the white made her look so innocent.”

     Ronan let out a filthy curse and walked off.

     And Dane?

     Dane stared out across the club as a feeling of calmness washed over him. Chess pieces had been moved.

     Now.

     Now, he would wait.

Even if it Hurts, an emotionally charged contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author, Marni Mann.

OLIVER

When I met her, I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

We were so young and so passionate.

We studied business in the day and each other’s bodies at night.

We always knew it would end with the semester, so we loved hard with no regrets.

LANCE

When I met her, I couldn’t get her off my mind.

We were fresh out of college and ready to take on the world.

We fit each other like missing puzzle pieces.

And just when I thought my life was perfect, it got better. She became my wife.

CHLOE

I met my first love while studying abroad in London.

When I moved home, I didn’t think I’d ever fall in love again.

Until I met him. The man who became my husband.

The one I promised a lifetime to.

Then, my first love came back into my life …

And I realized that love was bigger than any one man.

Excerpt:

“What can I get you?” the bartender asked, his hands hovering, waiting to reach for one of the bottles. 

I gripped the edge of the bar top, holding the cold leather, and said, “Prosecco, please.” 

The speakeasy wasn’t too packed tonight, just a steady business crowd filling the main space and the small seating nooks that were like little dens built into the perimeter. 

My eyes were falling over the row of wine, studying the labels, when I felt a piece of fabric brush across the side of my arm. I turned just in time to see a dark suit jacket leaving my skin, and with it came a scent. One that was so sharp and demanding—the smell of power if it came in a bottle.

I couldn’t believe how much I liked it. 

My gaze traveled higher to the silk tie, the broad shoulders, and the full frame that was at least six-three and all suit. And I found myself holding in my breath as I took in this absolutely gorgeous man with thick black hair and a clean-shaven face, blue eyes so dark that they looked navy. 

“Have you ordered?” he asked in a rich, deep voice. 

“He’s making mine now.”

It was easy to see there was nothing raw about this man. He had a polished, educated demeanor with a richness that went well beyond the cost of his suit. 

He smiled, and I found myself sucked into it, unable to look away. “What’s your name?” 

With a stare as invasive as his, one I felt move straight through me, it seemed my name was something he should certainly know at this point.

“Chloe Kennedy.” 

He turned his body so he was now facing me, showing me details I hadn’t picked up before—a narrow, angular nose and tiny wrinkles at the sides of his eyes. His hand reached forward, and when it surrounded mine, he said, “Lance Hamilton.” 

“Here’s your Prosecco,” the bartender said, and from the corner of my eye, I saw him set down the glass. 

“Add that to my tab, and I’ll take a scotch,” Lance said with his eyes on me. 

I knew my cheeks were blushing, and it wasn’t because he was paying for the drink. “You don’t have to do that.”

“I can’t let a beautiful woman like yourself pay for her own drink.” His eyes narrowed. “Unless there’s someone else here who should be buying it?” 

“No.” I shook my head. “Only you.” 

My hand was still in his, gripped in a shake that I felt all the way up to my shoulder, across my chest, and down to my other hand that was clenching the cold glass of champagne. 

My comment seemed to make his smile grow, and he held my hand for a second longer before releasing me. 

“I was just coming to find you,” Molly said, startling me, her arm then snaking around my waist. “Looks like Lance found you instead.”

I glanced at my best friend, knowing Lance could hear us. “You know him?” 

“I work with Marshall,” Lance said before Molly could reply, and he leaned down and kissed her on the cheek. “Nice to see you, Molly.” 

She grinned at him. “You too.” 

He hadn’t been part of the group Molly and Marshall introduced me to when we first arrived, nor had I seen him at any of the parties I attended with her. If I’d met Lance before, I wouldn’t have forgotten.

“I’ll see you back at the table,” she said, her arm leaving my waist, and she gave me a look I knew well. It was one that told me she approved, and then she was gone just as the bartender handed Lance his drink.

“Thank you again,” I said as he handed the bartender his credit card. He held his glass in the air, near mine, smiling.

“To the morning and everything that happens in between.”

I laughed, clicking my Prosecco to his scotch, and it felt like a warmth had crept over me, even before I put my lips to glass and swallowed.

Cover Reveal: Ember by Emma Renshaw

Ember - CR Banner.jpg

From Emma Renshaw, author of the Vow series, comes a new small town romance about a guilt-ridden man returning home, a single mom, and the past that scars them both.

Ember is coming April 21, 2020!

Ember AMAZON.jpg

Ten years ago, I left Hawk Valley. 

I never planned to return. Not to the regrets. The bitter memories. The guilt.

My baseball career gave me both the excuse and the money I needed to start over. Then my mom called, and I found myself headed back to the one place I swore I wouldn’t step foot again.

Meeting Delilah wasn’t part of the plan. Falling in love with her adorable son was even less so. And yet, what’s brewing between us is too intense to be denied. The unexpected passion is almost enough to distract us from the crumbling of both our worlds.

But even as the sparks fly, someone is waiting in the shadows to burn it all down.

Series Announcement from Erin Nicholas

Hot Cakes Series - CR Banner


Hot Cakes, an all-new delicious, laugh-out-loud series of standalone romantic comedies from
New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is coming this spring and we have the irresistible covers! 

Sugarcoated is heating things up March 24th! 

 

Sugarcoated300.jpg

 

A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom com . . . with sugar on top! 

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s known her all his life. He’s practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point.

Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.

Now, that was a surprise.

Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no. 

To say that he didn’t handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he’s going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever. 

Right after he tells her that he’s bought the company that’s her bakery’s biggest competitor. 

Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we’re-rivals-in-business-now thing. 

So, first “I’m in love with you”, then “take off your clothes”, then “I’m now your business adversary”.

Piece of cake.

Dream With Me by Kristen Proby

Release Date: January 21, 2020

Dream With Me FOR WEB.jpg

Dream With Me, an all-new standalone contemporary romance in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby.

Kane O’Callaghan knows what it is to have his work shown all over the world. His pieces are on display in palaces and museums, including the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass just outside of his beloved hometown of Seattle. Kane is a bit of a recluse, spending time on his farm alone and committed to his art. His life is full.

Until the day he meets her.

Wandering through museums is Anastasia Montgomery’s favorite way to spend her time. Not only does art feed her soul, but it inspires her own art of designing wedding cakes. When her muse seems to be gone, she finds her again among the beauty in the museums of Seattle, and the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass is her favorite. She’s never met the artist, but he must be absolutely brilliant, if he can make such beautiful things out of glass.

Bumping into a grumpy stranger at the museum wasn’t in Anastasia’s plan. And then discovering it was Kane himself was absolutely humiliating.

But when she sees him again at a charity fundraiser, and ends up spending an incredible, unforgettable night with the mysterious glass smith, Anastasia finds herself thinking of Kane and little else, even her precious work. Will this relationship bloom into the romance of a lifetime, or will their dreams of success get in the way of true love?

Copy of Dream With Me Teaser BT.jpg

Excerpt:

     Okay, so the man has moves. It shouldn’t surprise me that someone who creates such amazing works of art can also lead a girl around the dance floor. With one palm firmly planted on my lower back, and the other clutching my hand, Kane keeps his eyes on mine.

     “You’re a good dancer,” I murmur.

     “You’re nervous,” he replies softly. “There’s no need to be. It’s just a dance.”

     I take a deep breath and offer him a smile. He’s right. It’s just a dance.

     The fact that he’s maybe the hottest man I’ve ever seen is a huge bonus.

     And if he can move like this, with all of our clothes on, I can only imagine what it could be like if we were naked.

     Mercy.

     “I never got your name,” he says and guides me closer to him so we can talk into each other’s ears. I glance around the room, seeing my sister and the other girls smiling at us, watching us dance.

     “Anastasia,” I say and turn my head, not quite planting my nose against his neck. The smell of this man is going to kill me.

     And not because it triggers my asthma.

     Because it’s too sexy.

     I watch the pulse in his neck and enjoy the feeling of his strong arms holding me.

     “That’s a lovely name.” The accent is thicker in his voice now. Irish? I’m not good with accents, but I’d bet he’s Irish.

     His last name might be an indicator.

     “Thank you.”

     The song ends and flows into another ballad. Adele sings about finding another lover, as Kane moves against me, with me.

     I wonder if it looks as sexy as it feels.

     “You said yesterday,” he whispers against my ear, “that you’d be using your sketch for something else. What will that something be?”

     “A cake.”

     He pulls back far enough to smile down at me in surprise. “A cake, is it?”

     I nod, more comfortable talking about what I do for a living than just dancing in silence.

     “I design and build wedding cakes for a living. I can do them for other occasions, as well, but wedding cakes are what I’m known for.”

     “Interesting.”

     “I have a client who came into my shop about a month ago to hire me. They didn’t give me any direction at all. No colors, no requests. It just has to feed about two hundred guests.” I shake my head in disgust. “Not that I want them to tell me to copy a photo. I won’t do that, but usually, they have colors they like or flowers in mind. Something. Not these two. When I need inspiration, I like to look at what others have created. Or have conversations with people I enjoy.”

     “That makes sense,” he says and leans in to kiss my forehead, which sends a shiver right down my spine to my lady parts—which had already sat up and taken notice of Kane.

     “What was that for?” I ask.

     “An apology,” he replies. “For being difficult yesterday.”

     “Apology accepted.”

     His lips quirk into that half-smile, his green eyes shining. The song is almost over, and I know I should thank him for the dance and find Lia and the others.

     “Thanks for the dance.”

     The last note plays, and I pull back, immediately wishing I was back in his arms.

     He’s a stranger, and it’s crazy, but it’s true.

     “Do you belong to a man, Anastasia?” Kane brushes his knuckles down the side of my cheek.

     I frown. “I’ll never belong to anyone.”

     “You know what I mean. Are you taken?”

     “I’m single if that’s what you’re asking.”

     “Good.” He kisses the back of my hand.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years. 

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series. 

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
