When Sparks Fly, an all-new sweet and sexy best friend standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

Charming, hilarious, and emotional...When Sparks Fly is Helena Hunting at her very best!

Avery Spark is living her best life. Between her friends, her sisters, and Spark House, the event hotel her family owns, she doesn’t have much time for anything else, especially relationships. She’d rather hang out with her best friend and roommate, Declan McCormick, than deal with the dating scene. But everything changes when she is in a car accident and needs someone to care for her as she heals.

Declan avoids relationships, giving him a playboy reputation that he lives up to when he puts a one-night stand ahead of a promise he made to Avery. While he may not have been the one driving the car, he feels responsible for Avery’s injuries and is determined to make it up to her by stepping into the role of caretaker.

Little did they know that the more time they spend in compromising positions, the attraction they’ve been refusing to acknowledge becomes impossible to ignore. When they finally give in to the spark between them, neither is prepared for the consequences. Their love is fragile and all it will take is a blow from the past to shatter it all.

Excerpt

Commotion from across the field catches my eye. Two of the riders seem to be at odds with each other. The hand on hip, head tip, nose-to-nose business gives me reason to believe there’s some kind of disagreement happening.
“That doesn’t look very friendly.” I nod in their direction.
“Maybe the horses need a time-out,” Harley mutters.
I give her the side-eye, and she fights a smirk.
“Uh-oh, we have hand and hobbyhorse flailing,” London says, pulling my attention back to the field. The argument seems to be heating up, not cooling down.
“You need to deal with that.” London gives my shoulder a shove. She’s amazing with finances and she’s great at connecting me with the right vendors, but dealing with conflict is not her strong suit.
“Not in the mood to mediate stuffed horses?” I drop my bag on the ground beside Harley’s feet and briskly cross the field as the argument escalates to yelling. I’m about twenty feet away when one of the men hauls off and whacks the other one with his hobbyhorse.
“Whoa! Whoa! Gentlemen! Time-out. That’s not very sportsmanlike conduct!” I call.
My admonishment goes unheeded, and the two men begin dueling with their hobbyhorses. The bigger of the two jabs the other man in the stomach and snatches his hobbyhorse when he loses his grip on it.
“Gentlemen! Please!” I shout, but it’s hard to be heard over their yelling and the newly formed crowd of hobbyhorse enthusiasts who have gathered and are now heckling the fighters.
Two other men toss their hobbyhorses to the hobbyhorse-less man with shouts of “Kick his ass!”
And here I thought this was a chill sport. Apparently I’m very, very wrong.
The hobbyhorsers face off again, each one holding a broom horse between their legs and another like . . . a sword, maybe? It reminds me of medieval jousting. Especially when they start stomping their feet, pawing at the ground, and prancing in place. I know things are about to escalate when they shake their heads back and forth, braying loudly and breathing out through their noses in a hardy snort.
Then they run toward each other, while yelling. Even if they’re beating on each other with stuffed horse heads, I’m not interested in anyone ending up with a concussion.
I jump in between them before they collide, which I realize a second too late puts me in a very perilous position. However, the man on my right swerves at the last second and ends up crashing into the trough, toppling it and at least half a dozen of the “feeding” hobbyhorses. The other man skids to a stop mere inches from me, loses his balance, and falls backwards onto the ground. It rained yesterday, so while it’s sunny and dry now, the ground is still soft and mucky. And he happens to land in a seriously squishy pile of muddy grass.
He also manages to hit himself in the family jewels with the hobbyhorse. He rolls onto his side, clutching the muddy horsehead and his junk. It’s quite the spectacle. Before it turns into absolute mayhem, I grab the megaphone from the group MC and shout, “Whoa, Nelly!” like an idiot.
However, it does the trick. Every single one of them freezes. “Rider number seventeen and twenty-three, you are disqualified from this round for roughhousing and inappropriate use of your hobbyhorse!” I’m totally making this up on the fly, but someone needs to get these guys under control, and they don’t seem to be able to manage it on their own.
The guy who nut slapped himself—number twenty-three—picks himself up off the ground and hobbles gingerly over to the bench, which is now assigned to disqualified hobbyhorsers. Number seventeen throws himself down on the other end with a huff.
I lower the megaphone and cross my arms. “This is supposed to be about team building and sharing something you’re passionate about. If you want to joust, I suggest you either join a club or interview for a position at Medieval Times.”

Excerpt

Prologue
Maddox

From the very first moment I spotted Snow White, she’d burned herself into my brain. Every fucking night, the image of her naked body tortured me in maddening detail.
Sometimes I woke with the remnants of her taste in my mouth, half convinced I’d actually buried my tongue in her undoubtedly pretty pussy. Fuck, I hadn’t seen an inch of that legendary body yet, much less touched her. Oh, but I would, even if it took a poisoned apple.
A guy like me would never be allowed near Snow White. I wasn’t a fuckin’loser, far from it. I was going to become the president of the Tartarus MC, following in my uncle’s footsteps, the current prez. Of course, that made me the lowest scum on earth if you asked Snow White and her fuckin’father, Luca Vitiello, the Capo of the Italian mob on the East Coast. I was a little boy, barely five years old, when the life I knew was ripped from me. As the son of the president of the New Jersey chapter of the Tartarus motorcycle club, I had watched many disturbing things at my young age. Club brothers getting it on with whores in the middle of the clubhouse in broad daylight, brutal fights, shootings…but nothing had left quite a mark like the night the Capo of the Famiglia brutally killed my father and his men.
The murderous bastard had slaughtered an entire chapter of our club—alone.
Strike that.
Not alone—with a fuckin’ax and a skinning knife. The screams of my dying club family still haunted my nights, an echo of a memory I couldn’t shake unless I drank enough booze to kill an elephant. Those images were the fuel for my hunger for revenge.
And revenge I would finally get, with the help of the spoiled princess of New York: Marcella Vitiello.

Bikers? Meh. They're a walk in the park. Me, on the other hand...they're going to wish they hadn't met me.

Tartlet by Bella Jewel is now live!

I'm no angel.
Far from it.
I'm the disappointment of the family.
The one they try to hide.
The failure.
The nuisance.
I have the rich family - you know the one. Parents dripping in gold, the perfect sister, and the loyal brother.
As far as they're concerned, I'm the accident they wish they had done something about.
A rebel.
Always causing trouble.
That's fine by me, I'm happy to be anything other than what they expect.
Until, that is, my father needs my help.
Well, okay, I practically force his hand, but it's my chance to prove I'm good for something.
He needs information on a local biker club.
He wants me to go in. To play them. To get what he needs.
A club full of hot bikers? A girl isn't going to say no.
I take on the challenge.
Go in there and destroy their little club.
Sounds like a god damned blast to me.
They won't know what hit them.
Or perhaps, I won't know what hit me...
I guess we'll find out.

Review

5* read.

One of my favourite mc authors I couldn't wait to get stuck into this book. 

Tartlet is the fourth book in this fun sexy biker series. It can be read as a standalone although I'd advise to read at least book three (Pop Goes the Biker) first to better understand this book.

This is Gabby and Remy's story and boy is it an addictive read, I couldn't put it down. Gabby really goes through so many emotions and starts to question everything. I loved the banter between her and Remy and the chemistry was hot.

Love this author, love this series and I really can't wait for the next addictive book by this author. Hopefully we don't have to wait to long as I'm already getting withdrawals.

Rule number 1 for the team owner’s daughter? Don’t date the players.
Especially not hotheaded tight ends with tattoos and impulse control problems. 
That's why Dominic Walker is completely off my radar. Sort of.
Babysitting the team troublemaker when he's forced to volunteer for the foundation where I work means I can't exactly avoid him.
I wish I had though. Because once I get to know Dominic, it's almost impossible to ignore the feelings he brings out in me. 
Pretty soon, I'm breaking all my rules. I just have to hope he doesn't break my heart in the process.  

Review

 5* read.

I love discovering a new author that has slipped through my fingers. This is actually my first book by this author and after reading this I can't wait to go back and buy some of her other books to get hooked on aswell.

This is Dominic and Faith's story. Dominic is your typical bad boy that you can't help but want. The banter between these two made this book the 5 stars for me. Mixed in with the added angst and sexual tension you couldn't help but be hooked to their story. They both go on such a rollercoaster of emotions and because your so invested in their story you feel every emotion to. I enjoyed seeing all the supporting characters and seeing how they interacted in their story.

Loved this book and will definatly be going back to read more from this author.

I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. 


If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. 


I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

The Junior by Monica Murphy is now live!

 

Caleb Burke.

Charming. Funny. Sexy.

Major player - both on the field and with the ladies.

I hate him.

Well, not really. I resist his so-called charms because I recognize them. We're a lot alike, Caleb and I. He's afraid of commitment? Me too. A giant flirt? Same here. He knows how to party? I am the absolute queen of the party.

Until I realize it's time for me to grow up and become a responsible adult. I'll be student teaching next year, so to save money, I move in with my two new roommates -- Eli Bennett and Caleb. Then I find a summer job -- where Caleb works. Soon, I'm spending almost every single day with the guy.

He's growing on me too. We've always had this unspoken chemistry brewing between us. When we finally give in to it, it's just as spectacular as I secretly predicted. The sex, and everything else, keeps getting better and better between us too.

But can I really take this guy seriously? Or am I only setting myself up to fail?

Review

4.5* read.
This is the third book in the College Years series. This book is
Caleb and Gracie’s story and my favourite in this series.

In past books I wasn't sure I was going to like Caleb's story, just by the way he was acting, he made it easy to hate him. I couldn't have been more wrong though. Caleb's and Gracie's connection was pure fire. It was steamy and you could feel the sexual chemistry coming off the pages. This really felt like a coming of age story for Caleb an Gracie, and I loved every last page.

The series is turning out to be some of this author's best work and I'm really looking forward to reading her next work.

Review

5* read.
I have to admit when I realised this was Jessa's book I wasn't looking forward to it. I know I know don't judge a book by it's cover but even after what happened to Jessa in the past books, I just couldn't see myself connecting to her story like the rest of the series. I didn't think I'd be able to ignore or forget what a bit** she was to Winter. Boy how wrong was I and actually this book is my favourite of this series now and that's why I love this author. She's taken an unlikeable character that I had no connection with, and made me fall in love with her and invest in her story to the point of being obsessed. I couldn't put it down.
Cassius and Jessa have so much chemistry and passion between them it sizzles off the page. Together they are perfect and I can't put into words how much I loved the interactions between these two. I also loved seeing the interactions between all the characters and how they took to Jessa especially.
I just loved it, one of my favourite books of this year. I'm so jealous of everyone who gets to read this for the first time, you won't be disappointed. I'm really excited for more from this author.

“Shantel takes us back to the gritty, addictive world of the Dark Kings and it’s as steamy, twisted, and captivating as the first two books in this amazing series.”--Siobhan Davis. USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author

Cross, an all-new dark standalone romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier, is available now!

CROSS

Have you ever stood next to a fire and felt the heat of it on your skin? Stared into the flames and thought how amazing it would be to be that free? It changes directions with the wind, destroying everything in its wake.

That's what she felt like.

Alexa was a wildfire that torched everything she touched, and I couldn't wait to be consumed by her.

She was off-limits. Even though I promised to stay away, I couldn't resist. She was the spark I had been missing in my life. The fire I craved.

I knew from an early age I was destined to burn in hell, but she was born to walk through fire.

ALEXA

I was single-minded, focused, and independent. Just how my mother raised me. I didn't have time for anything other than myself and work.

Funny how everything can change in an instant when you least expect it.

A King entered my life. What was supposed to be one night ended up being too many to count.

He was afraid that I'd see his darkness, but I couldn't get enough of him.

After all, a fire burns the brightest in the dark of night. And it only takes one match to cause total devastation.

Cross is the third standalone in The Dark Kings Series. You are introduced to the Kings in Code of Silence: A Dark Mafia Romance.

Review

5* read.

This is the third book but the first book I've read in this series (though I have previously read this author's other books). I was going to read the others first but I didn't have much time to read and review this one so I will have to do it out of order and go back to them. That being said this can be read as a standalone and I didn't feel like I was massively missing anything. I really liked the supporting characters so I'm looking forward to going back and reading some of their stories.

I'm obsessed with Cross. He's a dark gritty character that isn't for the faint hearted. Cross's past is heartbreaking and you're hit with it straight away in the prologue. Alexa has her own past problems and is being stalked by an ex-boyfriend. Together these two are fire. The chemistry is hot and Alexa was the perfect match to Cross. At first she was quite naive to everything, but she soon got her eyes wide open.

So much happens in this book with not just Cross but the supporting characters too. Lots of twists and turns and a perfect dark romance to feed my dark side.

Excerpt

She slides in, and I make my way to the driver’s side. Starting it up, I look over at her. “Where to?” I meant it more as a “where do you live?” but what I wanted to say and the words that actually came out were two very different things. 

She looks over at me. “Wherever you want to go.”

That’s an open invitation if I’ve ever heard one. Obviously, she doesn’t want me at her house, or she would have suggested that. “Kingdom?”I question, unable to keep my eyes from dropping to her legs as she runs her hands over her jeans. Her nails are kept short and painted black. She wears a silver banded ring on her right hand. It’s plain yet dainty at the same time. 

“I don’t gamble,” she states. 

My eyes meet hers. “Neither do I.”

What I have planned for her is much more intimate. I mean, if she’s into a crowd watching, then that’s fine too. I’m not shy. 

She laughs, leaning her head back against the headrest, and smiles softly at me. Her green eyes drop to my jeans, and I refrain from groaning at the thoughts that run through my mind. My hand in her hair while she’s bent over the center console with her lips wrapped around my cock …“Kingdom it is.” Not wanting to waste another second, I take off, getting the hell out of here. 

We don’t say much during the twenty-minute drive back to the Strip. I keep checking on her to make sure she hasn’t passed out, and every time, she’s looking out the window. 

I pull up around the back of tower one, where the Kings and I have a private entrance. Parking the car, I help her out and up the fifteen stairs that lead to a set of black doors. 

Her drunk eyes take in the white marble floor and black circle with the gold K in the middle when we enter the building. Lifting her head, she notices the mirrored ceiling and chandelier hanging in the entrance. 

Nigel stands behind his black marble desk in the corner. Nigel is our right-hand man. He’s more of a father to us than our actual fathers ever were. Guess it didn’t take him and Titan very long to bury Kenneth. He looks up and smiles at us. “Good evening, Cross. Alexa. It’s good to see you again.” I’m not sure how he knows her other than maybe he met her at Titan’s wedding. 

“You too, Nigel,” she tells him as I scan my key card for our private elevator. Only a King has access to it. Other than him, of course. It opens immediately, and we step inside. I have to refrain from ripping her clothes off right here and now. Just a few more minutes and she’s all mine. 

It comes to a stop on the Royal level to the suite that the Kings share. But no one will be here tonight. Titan hasn’t stayed one night here since he married Emilee. Grave stays at his house with April, and Bones rarely sleeps. I’m sure he’s at Glass—one of the many businesses he owns that we all pretend we don’t know about. 

Stepping into our suite, I turn to face her. “Would you like a drink?”

She places her hands on my chest, gripping my shirt. “I think I’ve had enough.”

My hands go to her hips, and I yank her to me. The thought crosses my mind that this is a mistake. That she’s off-limits to me. I try to think of my best friend and how it would affect him. “I made a promise not to touch you,” I rush out, hoping she pushes me away. 

She surprises me by smiling, and it’s anything but innocent. Her pretty green eyes drop to my lips before returning to mine. “I can keep a secret.” Then her lips are on mine.
