When You Touch Me

Marilyn Baxter

Amazon

Family woes bring Jillian Logan home to Mimosa Key, but she faces more trouble in her new job as a massage therapist at the Casa Blanca Resort in Barefoot Bay.  Right away she’s given a special assignment:  a wounded soldier who is a good-looking player with sex appeal and who threatens to throw her delicately balanced life off-kilter.  Sam Hartman, AKA Hart Throb, views the beach as just another sandbox all too reminiscent of the hellhole where he was injured.  And the alternative therapies that Jillian offers him?  He considers them pure voodoo.  He would rather move their relationship off the massage table and into his bed, but as much as he wants her touch, it forces him to face the demons that still haunt him.  Can the heat of their unlikely connection heal them both?

Both apply to PERFECT MATCH, a TV reality show advertising cutting edge technology to pair up ideal mates. Matches so perfect, the show guarantees a wedding before the weekend is over.

Hot, rich, and powerful meets his match at a destination wedding in Barefoot Bay.

Jack Martinez has the world at his feet. Heir apparent to Florida’s most lucrative personal injury law firm, women love him and insurance companies quake at the mention of his name. But Jack harbors a secret wish. He wants to start a small practice of his own, away from the limelight, and he’s counting on his younger brother to finish law school and take his place at their parents’ firm.

Felicity Reed wants to save her family’s dying PR company. Landing a big client like Jack would be a dream come true, but she’s made a pitch and he’s already shot her down. Which makes it awkward when her baby sister and Jack’s younger brother decide to do a destination wedding at the Casa Blanca Resort in Mimosa Key.

When the soon-to-be newlyweds announce that they’re deferring law school, Jack offers Felicity a deal; help him convince the young couple to stick to their original plan and he’ll give her PR firm a slice of his business. Which seems easy enough until Felicity finds herself actually falling for the arrogant ambulance chaser. Now she’s going to have to make a choice between family loyalty or a chance on a forever love.

Wild on the Rocks

Kiersten Hallie Krum

Amazon

Wild on the Road

Driven by wanderlust and an insatiable curiosity, Quinn Forrester views every new gig for her travelling mixologist business as another chance for wild adventure. Until the night curiosity leads her down the wrong hallway to witness a mob murder. After a week on the run, Quinn lands in Barefoot Bay, Florida and takes a job bartending for the swanky Casa Blanca resort where she hopes no wise guys show up to make her sleep with the fishes. But nothing whacks a low-profile like having your Navy SEAL ex-husband walk through the door—especially when he’s the love of your life you left behind…

Wild on the Beach

Finding his restless ex-wife at Casa Blanca—and still going by his name—is enough to drive Lieutenant Commander Jasper McQueen wild. When she ran out on their marriage, Quinn left Jasper a broken man. Now with his career in jeopardy and his sexy ex-wife at hand, Jasper is ready to chuck responsibility and submerse himself in a hedonistic affair—all sex, zero emotions—with the woman he won’t forgive and can never forget. And this time, when he’s done, it’ll be Jasper who does the leaving.

Wild on the Rocks

But when a mob enforcer follows Quinn to Barefoot Bay, Jasper becomes her only chance at living through the night…if they don’t kill each other first.

PROTECTING CAROLINE 
by Susan Stoker 
Book 1, SEAL of Protection Series

Matthew “Wolf” Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn’t have to do it very often. He’d been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.

When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she’d ever seen. She also never expected he’d be so easy to talk to. She knew he’d never be interested in talking to her if he hadn’t been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.

Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she’d see, or need, Wolf, she’d be sorely mistaken.

Excerpt-Banner

From ALOHA TEXAS by Chris Keniston

Holy shit. Nick backed away from the bed until he bumped the wall behind him, his gaze steady on the frail, unconscious woman he’d once loved with everything in him. She wouldn’t have done that to him. It was one thing to walk away, but to take his son? Son.

“No,” he mumbled. “No.” Pushed by a silent force, he turned on his heel and bolted out the door. In the hall, his gaze darted from side to side. He needed answers. Now. Just ahead he spotted the sign for the waiting room. The lawyer. She’d know.

With every step his pace quickened until he was practically running down the last strip of hallway. Gripping the frame with one hand, he flung himself through the door and skidded to a stop. A woman, maybe fiftyish with salt-and-pepper hair, wearing a dark suit, sat with her hands folded in her lap. Beside her, Kara read to a little boy.

Nick studied the child with as much neutrality as he could muster. He didn’t have a whole lot of experience with little boys. Well, make that any experience, but still if he had to guess, he’d say the kid was maybe four or five years old. Five. If the boy were his, he’d be five. From where Nick stood, he saw a cute little kid with a mop of curly dark hair enjoying the story. The scene could have been any mother and son. Only he’d bet the Kona Queen this wasn’t Kara’s son. He was Patty Ann’s. And maybe his.

As questions of how and why circled in his head, he forced himself to remain silent, to wait for the end of the story, for the small child to raise his face so Nick could see. And then what? If paternity could be pegged at a glance, there’d be no need for DNA. Finally, Kara said the waited words, the end, and the little boy gleefully looked up at the woman and asked, “Now can I see Mommy?”

Five words and Nick felt the vise around his heart tighten another notch. Patty Ann had been his lover, his friend, his heartbreak, but she was this little boy’s mommy.

He took a step forward, and all eyes in the room turned to him. Someone might as well have sucker punched him in the solar plexis. Crystal blue eyes stared up at him. The same eyes he looked at every day in the mirror.

“My God,” he breathed.

There’d be no need for DNA. Anyone who had ever seen a photograph of Nick as a small child would swear in a court of law that this was the same boy.

A native New Yorker, Chris Keniston was on her way to Australia when she fell in love with North Texas. Little did she know the balmy seventy-degree October days would turn into fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk heat in August!

Twenty years later, she started scribbling short stories about her favorite TV shows, giving them lives more to her liking – and the elusive happy ending. Not long after, a dear friend dragged her to a local writers’ meeting. After winning multiple writing contests and making the finals in the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart contest, she now spends her days, and nights, writing contemporary romantic fiction with lots of emotion, plenty of surprises, and, of course, the happily ever after.

Chris lives in suburban Dallas with her husband, two human children, and two canine children. Though she loves her puppies equally, she admits being especially attached to her German Shepherd rescue named Gunny. After all, even dogs deserve a happily ever after.

New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She’s married to a retired Army man who now gets to follow her around the country.

She debuted her first series in 2014 and quickly followed that up with the SEAL of Protection Series, which solidified her love of writing and creating stories readers can get lost in.
