Dive into the Newest Sweet with Heat Romance!






SUNSETS AT SEASIDE
Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #4
Addison Cole
Releasing Aug 23, 2017






Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Sunsets at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Sunsets by Melissa Foster.

“Come on. Come on. Come on.” Fifteen seconds. She clenched her eyes shut and squeezed the phone, as if she could will the win. It was only seven thirty in the morning, and already the sun had blazed a path through the trees. She was hot and frustrated, and after fighting with her orchestra manager for two weeks about taking a hiatus, and her mother for even longer about everything under the sun, she was ready to blow. She’d come to the Cape for a respite from playing in the Boston Symphony Orchestra, hoping to figure out if she was living her life to the fullest, or missing out on it altogether. Finding her father’s baseball autographed by Mickey Mantle was her self-imposed distraction to keep her mind off picking up the cello. She’d never imagined she’d find it a week into her vacation.

She opened her eyes and stared at the phone.

Five seconds. Four. Three.

A message flashed on the screen. You have been outbid by another bidder.

“What? No. No, no, no.” She pressed the bid icon, and nothing happened. She pressed it again, and again, her muscles tightening with each attempt. Another message flashed on the screen. Bidding for this item has ended.

No!

She stared at the phone, unable to believe she’d been seconds away from winning what she was sure was her father’s baseball and had lost it. She hated phones. She hated eBay. She hated bidding against nonexistent people in tiny little stupid phones. She hated the whole thing so much she turned and hurled the phone over the deck.

Wow.

That felt really, really good.

“Ouch! What the…” A deep male voice rose up to her.

Jessica crouched and peered between the balusters. Standing on the gravel road just a few feet from her building, in a pair of black running shorts and no shirt, was the nicest butt she’d ever seen, attached to a tanned back that was glistening with sweat and rippled with muscles. Holy moly, they didn’t make orchestra musicians with bodies like that. Not that she’d know, considering that they were always properly covered in black suits and white shirts, but could a body like that even be hidden?

He turned, one hand rubbing his unruly black hair as he looked up at the pitch pine trees.

Yeah, you won’t find the culprit there.

His eyes passed by her deck, and she cringed. At least he hadn’t seen her phone, which she spotted a few feet away, where it must have fallen after conking him on the head. His eyes dropped to the ground…and traveled directly to it.

Jessica ducked lower, watching his brows knit together, giving him a brooding, sexy look.

Please don’t see me. Please don’t see me.

He looked at the cottages to his left, then to the pool off to his right, and just as Jessica sighed with relief, he crossed the road toward the steps to her apartment. His eyes locked on her. He shaded them with his hand and looked down at the phone, then back up at her, and lifted the phone in the air.

“Is this yours?”

She debated staying there, crouched and peering between the railings like a child playing hide-and-seek, hoping he really couldn’t see her.

I’ve been seeked.

Darn it!

Excerpt:




Ember

Jackson Cane tastes like red-hot cinnamon, salt water, and sin.

When he concentrates, his long fingers twist in the back of his dark hair, right at the base of his neck, and he tugs.

Tugs… tugs…

I like to weave my fingers between his and pull.

Then ocean-blue eyes blink up to mine sending electricity humming in my veins. He smiles. I smile, and it isn’t long before our lips touch. I climb onto his lap in a straddle as I open my mouth, and his delicious tongue finds mine heating every part of my body. Our kisses are languid and deep, chasing and tasting. We sizzle like fireworks on a hot summer night…

Eventually, with a heavy sigh, I pull away, but hours later my mouth is still burning. I taste him everywhere I go.

Lying in my bed in the dark room, my heart aches, heavy and painful in my chest. Every breath is a burden. I blink slowly at the ceiling and slide my tongue against the back of my teeth thinking about hot cinnamon, tangy salt, caramel and sugar, sunshine and the best summer of my life…

The instant I hear it, I’m on my feet and tiptoeing to my open window. The low growl of an engine tells me he’s there in the darkness, out on the street in the shadows just past the streetlight.

It’s late summer, and the humidity hangs heavy in the air. Bugs scree from the limbs of the mighty oak tree outside my window. Their damp wings make them too heavy to fly, and the sadness in my chest is replaced with breathless anticipation.

I’m panting. I’ve never felt this way for anyone, and I’m desperate to hold onto it. I somehow I know I’ll never feel this way for anyone ever again.

Quiet as a mouse I scamper to my bedroom door and listen. The only sound is the hum of Mama’s oscillating fan pushing the warm air around her bedroom. I can’t hear her breathing. I can’t hear anything… except the noise of Jackson’s engine on the street below, waiting.

Red-hot cinnamon.
Salt water.
Sin.

Pressure tingles around the edges of my skull, and a bead of sweat tickles down the side of my neck, dropping past my shoulder, slipping between my breasts.

I’m at my window slowly lifting the glass, and I don’t care if she hears me. I dive through the space, out onto the cedar shake roof in my bare feet. I’ll get a splinter if I’m not careful…

So many reasons to be careful—I ignore them all.

Release Day & Review -- Extortion by J. Derek Teevan






Genre: Erotica Novella
Goodreads Link: http://bit.ly/2vVodQ6



Synopsis:

A job is just a job, right? Just because a man gets paid to do bad things, doesn't necessarily make him a bad person. At least that what he’s been telling himself these past few years.

One final job. One final conquest. One last heartbreak until he’s free of The Company and their hold over him.

Little does he know, he’s about to face the toughest job of his life. Follow Ethan on his titillating path of self-actualization and turmoil in J. Derek Teevan's debut novel eXtortion.

Excerpt:


A sick excitement courses through me when Luke picks up his phone and dials the number on the contract to confirm that I’ll take the assignment. It’s almost like the first day of school nerves all over again, only this time around you’re getting paid to seduce your teacher.

If she takes the bait and sleeps with me, she’s the one who failed the test. I’m just the asshole who’s administering it. Unfortunately for her, I’ve never failed. In my time at The Company, I have a success rate of 100%. Yeah, I’m the dick who has successfully ensured that twelve women were divorced and didn’t receive a penny of their husband’s money. It took time, cultivating a relationship, dangling the carrot, or playing a cat-and-mouse game. 

Looks like Dr. Samantha Dawson is going to be lucky number thirteen.

Or unlucky, in her case.

“Okay, you’re good to go. They’ll send you the complete file by courier tomorrow, and your training day starts on Monday, Officer Hoyt. You got three days, so suit-up. Or I guess in your case, get those scrubs ready.”

Luke can never miss a chance to bring up a movie reference with that other Ethan guy. I’ve grown so used to them I’m not even sure if they register in my brain anymore. My brain stays with the subject at hand. “Wow, that was fast. We usually have more time to study the target before the meeting. What’s the deal?”

He simply shrugs and gives me an impassive stare. “Time is money, buddy, and this guy, the client, has to be pulling some serious strings for you. Your case and internship at the hospital both start Monday. Damn, talk about good timing. It’s like he was waiting for someone from The Company to graduate medical school to make this happen. Must be one miserable son-of-a-bitch.”

I run a hand over my face. Damn, I almost wonder what the good doctor has done to make her husband want to toss her to the curb. But it’s best left to remain uninvolved. It doesn’t matter what she’s done or not done. It only matters that I do my job.






Review:

"I can't help but be drawn to her. The more I'm around her, the more I want her." ~ Ethan

"Thoughts of him had wrecked my mind, it seemed that all I did anymore was think of him doing dirty, wicked things to me.
I should've been ashamed, but I wasn't." ~Samantha

HOLY DEBUT NOVEL, BATMAN!!

Just wow!
The blurb itself intrigued me, but as soon as I read the prologue, I was hooked!

I had to know Ethan!
What he does for a living is something I have never heard of before, and man, it is insane...and so unique in a storyline!!
I couldn't stop wanting to know what happened next!

Samantha was living a lonely life until Ethan comes into it.
Even though her feelings for him were wrong, she couldn't help but feel so right in his arms.
Sexual tension galore, my friends!!!

"I'm doing my best to seduce her, but at times I almost feel she is trying to seduce me."

This story was hot and sexy, but also dramatic with some suspense rolled in.
It was a page-turner and fast-paced.

I honestly couldn't get enough and didn't want it to end!!
I was cheering Ethan and Samantha on as they fought for their relationship, and for themselves.

This was a wonderful debut for J. Derek Teevan!
I can't wait for the next book within this series!!!

Very well done!!

"She's my drug, and I never want to detox." ~Ethan

"I finally feel alive and it's all because of him." ~Samantha

I laugh and find myself tempted by her hand, which sits on the metal table. After our impromptu snogging session, Jade put on a nice little sundress which has my imagination running wild and some strappy sandals. Her toes are painted a turquoise blue. I found it a little weird at first; normally I see reds or pinks on toes, but rarely a blue colour. I quite like it. I like it a lot. In fact, I’ve yet to find something about this woman I don’t like. 
“And yet, you didn’t. I came over and kissed you. You could’ve punched me, kicked me in the nuts, or groped me. I’m grateful you let me kiss you the way I did.”
She blushes again. “Why did you? I’m sure there are other, more beautiful women at the resort that would’ve been happy to oblige you.”
“But then I wouldn’t be here with my pretend wife, trying to get to know more about her.”
Her eyes don’t waver from mine as she takes a sip of her cocktail. “Do you really want to get to know me?”
“The fake you, yes. I don’t want to get cornered by one of the triplets and not know my facts.”
“Are they in fact, triplets?”
I shake my head. “I haven’t got a bloody clue, to be honest with you. Fake tits all look the same at the end of the day.”
Her mouth falls open into a sexy little O and images of other ways I can make that happen pop straight into mind. “I named them Muffy, Tuffy, and Buffy. The names seemed fitting,” she says with a shrug. 
I crack the fuck up. “Then that is what we’ll call them until they leave.”
“Do you know when that is? Or what room they’re in?”
I lean over the table and pick her hand up. “They leave after us, and no, I don’t, thank goodness. I don’t care either. I made you a promise and I always keep my promises.” I bring her hand to my lips and let them linger against her skin until a passer-by makes a comment about us being in love. 
Not love, lust though, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her to be my distraction this week. When I finally let go of her hand, she picks up her drink and finishes it. 
“Want another one?” I ask, already standing by the time she nods. I lean down and kiss the top of her head, inhaling the scent of her shampoo. The smell of grapefruit assaults my senses, making my heart race. I groan as I walk into the restaurant. I could’ve easily waited for the waitress to come back to us, but I needed to step away from Jade for a minute. She’s fucking deadly with her innocent fa├žade and I have a strong reason to believe I’m going to fall victim to her and love every minute of it. 
When I walk out, there’s a bloke talking to her as if it’s an everyday occurrence. I have never been jealous of any man until now. The pure rage I feel, watching him talk to my pretend wife almost takes over my body, yet I find the will to let it go. Who am I to stand in the way of her potential hook-ups?
