Love Notes by Heather Gunter

"He straightens himself up and tilts his head to the side and leans forward. My heart is pounding so hard and I know I’m going to meet him half way. Right before our lips touch he whispers, “I love you, my Charlie.” I catch the “my” but don’t get a chance to respond because his lips are already on mine. He starts ever so gently and places one of his hands on the back of my neck. He kneads my neck with his hand and it feels so amazing. We start out slow, tasting and playfully teasing each others lips. However, the teasing stops abruptly and we start to increase the pressure. I pull him forward and place my hands around his neck. I let my fingers glide through his hair at the nape of his neck. I love his hair. I hear a slight groan escape his lips and it just makes me want him more. How is it that a kiss can say so much? Saying I love you is huge but to kiss someone who has told you that, a kiss speaks the truth and I know. I know in his kisses that he has meant every single word."

Broken Series
By: Amanda Bennett

Beautifully Broken (Broken Series #1):
“STOP BOTH OF YOU!” I screamed as loud as my lungs would allow. I put a hand on each of their chests trying to separate them. “Raylon you need to back off. You don’t understand enough to get in the middle of this.” I looked up at him with a sympathetic look in my eyes, hoping he would see that I was sorry that I had to choose. “As for you,” I pushed Gray towards the front door, “you don’t get to come up in here with another girl around your arm, and then try to protect me. It doesn’t work that way Gray. You can’t want all of me one minute and then only some of me another. It’s not fair.” I looked into his eyes and I could see that my words were breaking his heart.

  Breaking Beautiful (Broken Series #2):
He was driving me wild and my need for him surged through my body. The only problem was the doctor had told us no sex for at least 48 hours. These next two days were going to be PURE HELL. I squeezed his hands in mine before turning around in his arms. His eyes smoldered as they fell upon mine. I knew that look, and I was going to have a hard time resisting him. I lightly pressed my lips against his before pulling back to walk away. His strong hands wrapped around the back of my neck crashing his lips against mine. I could feel the urgency in his kiss, mainly because I was feeling the exact same way. Our kissing slowed to a more natural pace before he released me. I was breathless. There was no better way to describe how Gray made me feel.

Mikalo's Flame

By: Syndra K Shaw


Book Blurb:
Ronan Grace and her Greek god in grey wool Mikalo Delis.  Still happy, still in love, and now living together in New York.  

Despite it all.

Despite the lingering secrets of Mikalo's past and his complicated life.  Despite Ronan's own doubts and worries, the strength of her love for him both shocking and frightening.  Despite the jealousy and spite threatening her once successful career.  And despite the unexpected emergence of a drunk, drug-addled viciously vindictive blast from Mikalo's past.  

Will Ronan and Mikalo stumble under the weight of all these challenges and doubts and confusion as they move toward creating a life together?  Or will they fight, giving their love what it needs to survive.

Despite it all.


Excerpt  (18+):

I slipped out from underneath him and kneeled, facing him.
He watched me, silhouetted in the orange and red of the fire, the flames in the fireplace having quieted to a glow.
Peeling the shirt over my head, I ran my hands over my breasts, my pace slow, my fingers calm, unhurried.  
I avoided his gaze as I traced my own sensitive circles of flesh, the pink eager and willing.  Hungry for a touch.  A kiss.  The twin nubs yearning for the grazing of teeth.
I knew he was watching.  I knew this excited him.  And I knew the more I did and the slower I did it, the more desperate his need for me became.
Grabbing a nipple, I pinched.  Hard.
I closed my eyes, losing myself to the gentle pain.
He sighed, the unexpected breath thick with emotion.  With need.  Desire.
And then he cleared his throat, softly, as he swallowed, his tongue shooting forward to quickly lick his lips.
I glanced at him from beneath the curtain of my dark bangs.
His eyes were on my flesh, my fingers caressing my breasts, my stomach.  The small pink mountains of flesh he so loved to suck and lick and bite.
Standing, I undid the first button of my jeans.
He raised his head, watching me.
Moving near him, I lifted a foot, placing it in his lap.
He took it, slowly peeling the thin sock free and wrapping his large hands around my slender heel.
Taking it from him, I offered him the second.
Again, the resilient cotton came clear, the foot briefly held and caressed.
I snapped the second button open.
The jeans slid from my waist, the remaining buttons preventing the denim from drifting further.
Shirtless, hungry, horny, Mikalo waited, his frustration growing as his hand flirted with the hardness still hidden in his pants.  The fingers first gripping his width and then moving away, denying himself the necessary luxury of that squeeze, before moving back, his need for release growing as I undid a third button.
I stepped away from him and turned, my back now to him.
My hands reached to my breasts again, feeling the generous, smooth flesh, the pink once more teased and pinched.
A fourth button snapped free, my gaze quickly catching his as I looked over my shoulder.
His hands were now rubbing the flesh of his own chest and torso, the fingers toying with his own dark nipples, his mouth slightly open as his breathing grew ragged, the tongue sneaking out again to run themselves over his lips.
I slid the denim down and stepped free.
Behind me, he moaned.
"My Grace," came the whisper.
My ass was nice.  This much I knew.  As were my legs.  Slender but strong, the calves sculpted from years of navigating the city's streets and climbing its many stairs in an almost endless variety of heels.
My fingers hooked into the only thing separating me from nakedness, the fine layer of silk hugging my hips.
I turned, toying with the thin fabric covering the growing damp.
"Now you," I said, holding his gaze as he watched me.
He stood, shirtless, barefoot, and ready, the length of his desire stretching the denim down his thigh.

Broken by Christa Cervone 

coming out 2/28/2013

According to Webster’s Dictionary the definition of the word Broken is violently separated into parts. SHATTERED.

Yup, that pretty much sums me up. How do I handle things? I find my answers at the bottom of a bottle of Tequila and sleep with random men.

How did I get this way? Well, four years ago I made a decision that cost me the love of my life. I can't undo what I did to drive Garrett out of my life. I haven't seen or heard from him in four long years. But he still haunts me in my dreams or should I call them nightmares at this point? No matter how much booze I drink and how many men I sleep with, nothing fills the void. I feel like I am existing but I’m not really living.

I’m trying to get my life back on track. Well that was until. . . . Garrett walked back into my life. His reappearance threw me into another tailspin.
How do I put the pieces of our broken hearts back together? All before he walks out of my life again... this time for good. Or am I simply destined to just be Broken?

Excerpt from Chapter Six
When I arrive at Cora’s house at five minutes past three, I only have to knock once before the lock turns and the door creaks open. Adam is standing before me wearing a soft smile and I know he’s probably been here all day.
“Come on in,” he says, holding the door wide open for me.
I walk inside and Cora is sitting in her recliner in front of the television with Bigfoot in her lap. The apartment is clean and the usual sharp litter box smell is gone. Cora looks up and smiles so big I can see the gap where she’s missing her two back molars.
“Hello, honey. Have you met Adam Parker? He’s your new neighbor,” she says in a voice that makes me feel a little like a preschooler being introduced to a classmate. “I think you two should get to know each other.”
She obviously doesn’t know about our date yet.
Adam takes a seat on the sofa, on the side closest to the recliner, and pats the cushion next to him. “Yeah, come sit down, Claire. Let’s get to know each other.”
I take a seat on the sofa, making sure to put at least a foot of space between Adam and I, then I turn to Cora. “What did you do today? Where’s Tina?”
“Adam’s been taking care of me today. He gave her the day off,” she says, and her eyes crinkle with delight.
I narrow my eyes at him and he grabs Cora’s hand as he turns back to her. “It was my pleasure. I didn’t have anything to do today since the only other person I know in this town was working.”
“You work too much, Claire,” Cora chimes in, as she continues to stroke Bigfoot with her free hand.
Geez. It’s like these two have spent the past six hours rehearsing a routine to get Adam and me together. First he switches my schedule without my knowledge and now he’s using Cora to get on my good side. He is a master conspirator.
I stand up and do a quick check around the kitchen just to satisfy my curiosity. As expected, he did everything I asked. He even stocked her cupboard with plenty of hot cereal packets and her refrigerator with lots of fresh fruit.
“Well, it looks like you’re all taken care of so I’m gonna head home,” I say, as I plant a kiss on Cora’s forehead and rub Bigfoot’s head. “I need to shower and get to bed early. I have the early shift tomorrow.”
“Walk her home, Adam,” she says sweetly and he immediately pops up off the sofa.
“See you later, Cora. We’ll have to watch that movie another time.”
“See you later, sonny,” she says, and I know what’s coming next. “But just because I call you sonny, doesn’t mean you’re bright.”
He laughs and points at her. “I can’t keep up with you, C.”
Adam follows me out of the apartment and uses his own key, which Cora must have given him, to lock her deadbolt.
I take a few steps and turn when I reach my door. “C? Did you spend the whole day with her?”
“I ran a few errands for her, but other than that, yes, I spent the day with Cora. She’s funny and we were about to watch a movie before you interrupted us.”
“Oh, well, don’t let me interrupt your date with Cora. Please go right back in.”
He steps forward and my back hits my front door as I take a step back. He leans against my door with his hands on either side of my head, effectively caging me in.
“Are you jealous of my relationship with Cora?”
His breath is hot against my nose and warmth rushes through me, lighting up my core.
“I just don’t want her to get so used to having you around. She’s had a lot of people bail on her and I….” His face is getting closer with every word I speak. “I don’t want her to get hurt.”
“Are you sure we’re talking about Cora?” he whispers against my lips, lingering for a moment before he pushes away from the door. “I work all week, but I’ll be by your house at nine a.m. on Saturday. Wear a bathing suit under your clothes.”
I let out a deep sigh and scramble into my apartment, slamming the door behind me. I take a few calming breaths then try to ignore the ache pulsating between my legs as I make my way to my bedroom to meditate.
