Highland Honor

 

Willfully stubborn, innocently courageous, Callie Whitcomb braves a journey through the treacherous highlands to the Macpherson castle. Callie flees from an unwanted marriage as well as her ruthless half brother. Naively she believes Colin MacPherson, the head of the clan, is loyal to her father and will give her sanctuary, protecting her from the vile plans that have been made for her.

As hard and as unyielding as the winter storms that sweep through the countryside, Colin is irresistibly drawn to the impetuous beauty who has magically appeared on his doorsteps. Despite his vows of revenge against her father, she stirs his passion as well as his sense of justice…but to love her would violate all his vows of revenge.

Highland Song

 

With her white-gold hair and azure eyes, Lainie MacPherson is as wild and untamed as the rugged Scottish Highlands where she was raised. Lainie vowed to avenge a crime against her. Recklessly, she defies English laws and the man who raped her puts a bounty on her head. The man who is sent to bring her to Edinburgh sets a dangerous trap. With nothing left to live for the beautiful Scottish spy steals the sealed documents the English soldier has tempted her with.

When the exquisite temptress takes the bait and runs off with not only the forged documents but the purses of the men in the tavern, Aaron Slade vows to hunt her down and bring her to justice, never dreaming she will tame his jaded soul. When Aaron discovers the truth about the tempestuous woman who stirs his passion to the point of madness, he dares not love her, but desires her with all his soul.

SYNOPSIS

T.J. Alton is shy and reticent, living alone with a rescue cat after his parents’ death a year earlier. He rarely strays from his usual daily routine of work and home and back again.

Then he meets Devon Ryder, an outgoing, colorful, and ruggedly handsome man, with his own long list of emotional baggage. After a month of chatting online, the two men decide to meet in real life, and their first date is at a local Great Escape theme park in upstate New York.

As they discover more about each other through conversation and food, a connection is made. But will T.J.’s fears of large crowds and intimacy drive him back to isolation, away from the social circle of life, and the idea of starting a new relationship with someone special?

EXCERPT:

“I need to get over my fears,” I told Devon.

“I think that’s been accomplished tonight.” He took his hand away from my damp neck.

His palms were sticky from the humidity and melting snow cone.

“I’m glad you came,” he said.

“Given that we’ve only been chatting online for a month.”

“I thought it was time. Didn’t you?”

The lump in my throat returned. Anxiety was setting in. I bit my bottom lip, my molars grinding in the back of my mouth. “I’m glad you took me out of my comfort zone.”

“Which is where?” he asked.

“In a condo twenty miles from here. Watching TV. Cooking. Not straying too far outside.”

“Our late chats and your online profile yielded little about yourself. All I know is how much you like eighties detective shows, cats, and long walks in the night.”

“I also buy my own groceries,” I said.

More laughter.

“I do leave my apartment once in a while,” I said.

“Are you agoraphobic?”

I shrugged. “Part of me, maybe.”

“That’s worrisome.”

“My skeletal Facebook profile should’ve raised some red flags.”

“What are you scared of?”

“People. Crowded places. Terrorism. Violence.”

“Why did you choose to meet here, at an amusement park?”

“Because you wanted to.”

He laughed. “No. Really. Why?”

“To face my fears, I guess. I can’t live in isolation the rest of my life.”

He slid his sinewy, hairy arm around my slumped shoulder, the hot, drifting scent of his masculinity blasting my senses. “You’re different than other guys,” he said.

“A lot, I’m sure. Most guys are social.”

“That’s not what I mean.”

“I was being facetious.”

He hugged me, tugging me closer to him in the already tight space. “There’s something special that sets you off from other guys. Your colorful personality, it’s refreshing.”

I stared into his earnest eyes and burst out laughing. “That’s the worst pick up line I’ve heard.”

“I sound like a big weirdo, right?” he said.

“You’re on the verge.”

“I’ll be quiet now.” He turned to me and smiled broadly, a web of fine laugh lines crinkling the corners of his eyes.

“No. No. I’m just trying to understand what brought us here,” I said.

“The Internet.”

“I mean –”

He nudged me. “I’m kidding. I know what you mean. I think it was karma.”

kamikze

Kamikaze White Noise is a collection of three books by Nicole I. Nesca, The Sexual Repression CollectionKink and Canned. Though not a formal trilogy, the books were written as companion pieces and follow the themes of sexual freedom, emotional frankness and street-carnival logic, all written with Nicole Nesca’s usual free-flowing sardonic wit. Kamikaze White Noise is prose and poetry that assaults the senses, liberates the mind and celebrates life on the edge like a perfect quarter-mile drag race.

LIES, LOVE & REDEMPTION, #Historical #Western #Romance @KWilkinsauthor #AltRead #SSMedia


blogger-image-keli

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing a look at my newest historical western romance, LIES, LOVE & REDEMPTION. This full-length novel is set on the Nebraska prairie in 1877 and blends a steamy romance with mystery, and danger.

Read a spotlight about the book here:

Here’s the summary:

Lies, Love & Redemption

Shot and left for dead, Sam Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into the arms of Cassie Wilcox.

Cassie’s world is turned upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no matter what the cost.

As Sam recovers from his injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature but quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a mysterious stranger. Will he accept her once he knows about her troubled past?

Cassie resists Sam’s advances and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store but find their efforts are thwarted—and their lives endangered—by the locals.

Sam’s secret returns to haunt him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she learns the truth? Cassie has everything invested in the store—can she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?
Excerpt:

Cassie removed the sling and uncovered Sam’s shoulder. She bent forward, resting her hand on the center of Sam’s chest. His skin was warm, and she felt his muscles ripple beneath his skin. Her heart beat faster, and she closed her eyes. She shouldn’t be in here. It wasn’t proper, and yet . . . It took all her willpower not to peek at his lower half again.

“How is it?”

She opened her eyes and checked the wound. “It looks fine to me.” A lock of hair came loose from her bun and brushed across Sam’s chest. He reached up with his good hand and tucked it behind her ear.

Before she could protest, he leaned in close and kissed her.

Oh, Lord.

Sam’s lips moved against hers, slow and tender, as if he expected her to pull away or slap him. She didn’t. Instead, she closed her eyes and gave in.

Sam clutched her tighter, pulling her down to him. Her fingertips splayed against his bare chest, and she moaned. God, it felt good to be kissed and held by a strong man again.

A warm pulsing sensation flooded between her legs as Sam slipped his tongue into her mouth. She lost herself in his embrace and everything faded away. After what seemed like forever, Sam broke the kiss.

“Stay with me,” he whispered.

She gazed into his blue eyes. “I can’t. I should—”

“Yes, you can. I’ll treat you right. We’ll only do as much as you want. Kissing and cuddling, that’s all,” he said, then kissed her again.

That’s all? That wouldn’t be enough for her. Once they got down to serious kissing and touching, she wouldn’t want to stop. And she wouldn’t let Sam stop—even if he wanted to. Cassie melted in his arms. Their tongues entwined, probing and exploring each other’s mouths. Sam’s kisses stripped her of all reason and left her with a raging desire that needed to be sated.

It would be so easy to give in, to say yes, stay here all afternoon and . . . Was Sam healthy enough to make love? He must be if his prick was stiff. How would he be able to get on top of her without hurting himself?

Lord almighty, what was she thinking? She knew better. After all she’d been through, she knew she should resist him, but . . .

“Cassie? You here?” Luke bellowed from downstairs.

She yanked herself from Sam’s arms. “Shit.”

“Don’t answer him.”

“I have to. If I don’t, he’ll come up here.” She stood and adjusted the covers over Sam’s chest. “Be down in a minute,” she hollered.

“Get rid of him and come back. I think I’m on my way to a speedy recovery,” Sam said, grinning.
