Beautifully Decadent by L.A. Fiore 

Contemporary Romance 

Released: June 28, 2016


Avery Collins has just landed her dream job, pastry chef for the posh-Manhattan restaurant, Clover. Her new boss, Trace Montgomery, even helped with securing her an affordable place to live: a beautifully restored carriage house owned by his friend, Rafe McKenzie—a man that makes her catch her breath and stirs her imagination. Trouble is, he's involved with someone, his father is being released after 25 years in prison and Avery is just his tenant. Exploring the attraction that sizzles whenever they're together would be the icing on the cake, but Avery knows all too well that you can't have everything. Of course, what's cake without icing?

 Rafe McKenzie's world shattered at nine when his father Liam—the only parent he knew—was arrested and convicted for armed robbery. Growing up in the system, Rafe managed to survive his childhood and now has a job he enjoys, a house he's restoring and a tight circle of friends. He's even working on reconciling with his dad, both eager to put the past in the past.

 Happy for the income a tenant would bring, Rafe agrees to rent his carriage house to Clover's new pastry chef. When Avery Collins pulls up his drive, she's not at all what he's expecting. Funny, sexy and as sweet as her desserts, it doesn't take long for things between them to heat up. Just when it seems as if they'll have their cake and eat it too, the past comes back with deadly intent leaving Rafe to figure out who's pulling the strings before his world shatters again.

Preview: Teaser for STROKED by Meghan Quinn

We're so excited about the upcoming release of STROKED by Meghan Quinn! 
Check out this amazing teaser! 

STROKED by Meghan Quinn
Scheduled to release: July 20, 2016
NA Romantic Comedy

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.

His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.

On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.

I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.

There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.

What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

Help us celebrate by participating in the release events!

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Publication: June 21, 2016

The tables are turned with a vengeance in this tour de force love story. Nearly a year has gone by and now it’s Dorothy who is fragmented and lost, while Joey keeps the promise he had made her to better himself —even though she’s gone. Joey talks about what is happening in the present while Dorothy describes what happened before— in the moments and hours after the Glock dropped. This time the stakes are even higher, as Joey forces himself to move forward while Dorothy is frozen in place. But when he learns of a devastating decision, Joey races to find her before it is too late. Truth, consequence, repercussion and modern medicine collide as pieces converge in this psychological, thrilling story which begs the question: Can love really conquer all?

Excerpt from Signs of Life

Joey — Now I get to the church, and low and behold there’s a new message on its sign. The messages outside this church make my soul shudder. I try not to look at it, but then I always do. It’s like an accident on the side of the road. A really bad accident, where there’s nothing you can do to help—and there you are, staring. Helpless. I think of this sign like an especially bad therapy session. Like it’s a shrink bringing up shit—no, topics—you don’t want to think about. But this sign is even worse, because it’s not just about me. It’s about all of us—and there ain’t a thing I can do about it. I don’t know what’s up with this church always making people feel bad before they walk in—or maybe they’re trying to guilt you to come in and pray, to try and do something to ease the pain. Maybe religion’s just another drug. Tonight the sign says, “No good deed goes unpunished.” I said that once myself, to Doll. I didn’t even know where it came from, it just blurted out without my even thinking about it. It was like the words were divinely delivered into my throat for me to say. When it was too late to do anything about them. Typical God. Makes you wonder what's up with him, causing all this grief. Maybe he’s toying with us. But I still go to meetings and I still surrender. What else can I do? And anyway, I don’t have the the strength to fight anymore. Never thought I’d see that day. I salute ol’ Jesus still nailed up on that cross and head inside. Poor Jesus. If he had no chance, what’s gonna happen to the rest of us? 
Dorothy – Then The more we kissed the dreamier I felt, like that first time. At the museum, by the Monet paintings. When we floated among the water lilies. We just drifted right in with them. Now we were floating in the water below us, going with the current, carried by the tide. Nature, we could trust. But could we trust human nature? We were still holding hands, he was clutching me, so tight, but then he let go of one hand and touched my hair. It made me feel like when his dad touched me, and my entire body shook. I pushed him off of me and gasped, sucking in huge breaths and yet still unable to breathe. “Doll …” he tried to touch me again and I recoiled. I fell to my knees on the sidewalk, but I felt no physical pain. It occurred to me to pray but the last time I did that I got screwed. “What is it?” he asked. He was bent down beside me, but giving me distance too. I couldn’t answer, but it really didn’t matter because I didn’t know the answer. “Do you need me to get help?” My eyes were closed now as I concentrated on calming myself. Who needed God anyway? Joey had been right about him. Maybe I was my own God, maybe we were each our own gods, and that thought made me laugh. Then I was laughing and breathing, and I was okay. Which proved my thesis, right? I opened my eyes and looked at Joey, who was not getting the joke. “What the hell?” He looked like he was about to fit me for a straight jacket. “I guess … I guess I have a little PTSD. When you touched my hair, I flashed back to your dad touching me …” “I’m sorry. Okay, I’ll keep out of your hair.” He gave me a crooked grin. I smiled back. “For now.” “But … what was so funny?” “I surrendered to a higher power that turned out to be me.” He stared at me for a few beats. Then he said, “Whatever works for you.”

A long time ago, on a playground far, far away, an awkward boy with two mothers and a penchant for pink shirts shook a tough girl’s hand over the rattled frame of a deposed playground bully. Tamsyn promised to be Rodrigo’s bodyguard if he’d draw her pictures of girls wearing superhero capes. Rodrigo promised to be Tamsyn’s buddy if she’d let him braid her hair.  
A deal, struck. A partnership, forged. And the timid gay boy and the fearless straight girl became inseparable. Now college graduation looms, and Rodrigo questions his place in the world. He has no boyfriend. No job. And a sudden—arousing—fascination with the female body. 

Correction: with Tamsyn’s body. Then one night, a golden ticket from a broken piƱata introduces him to the man he’s wanted for years. Now he’s torn between pursuing these strange feelings for Tamsyn or following the guy of his dreams. 

Best friends forever. 

 If love doesn’t break them up first.

Seven wrote seven other books as someone else you may have heard of, but don’t let that distract you. It’s totally irrelevant. Seven’s favorite number is eight.
