#CaptivatingNightsRelease

With New Year’s Eve and her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, best-selling author Calista Grant has a hard time envisioning actually doing something for herself. At the urging of her closest friends, she books herself a once in lifetime vacation, trading the chaos of Boston for the serene tranquility of the Caribbean. Once in paradise, she makes the decision to drop her guard and finally let loose.
Enter two bachelors, with demons of their own to vanquish. Zane Rhodes, a successful architect, is on a path of self-destruction after a tragic loss. In denial regarding his own issues, resort owner, Xavier Rivera, invites his best friend to spend the holiday with him in paradise. Once there, they both meet Calista and are immediately captivated.
Used to sharing everything, including women, they set out to seduce the innocent brunette and fulfill her deepest fantasies. Neither is prepared for what happens next, though, as the two Dominants find themselves not only battling each other, but their own demons as well. Will they be able to save their friendship before the reality of the three ends the fantasy forever?


Soft lips moved across the back of her neck, making her whimper. That spot was such a turn-on to her. As his mouth trailed along the line of her neck, her pulse beat wildly. His teeth grazed the throbbing pulse point in her neck before he sank them down into it. Another moan escaped her lips, but this time he swallowed the sounds of it as he turned her head, fusing his mouth to hers.
      Xavier was a fantastic kisser, and if that particular skill was any indication of others he possessed, he’d have to be phenomenal in bed. Cali leaned further back against his chest, wrapping what part of her arms she could around his neck to keep herself upright. His hands snaked around her body, palming her breasts and kneading her aching flesh. 
“A perfect fit,” he rasped, nipping her earlobe. She had no time to react before his hands traveled higher so he could slip his fingers beneath the thin spaghetti straps on her dress. Dropping her arms to her sides allowed Xavier to slide the material down her limbs. With her dress now resting just above her hips, Cali brought her hands back up to where they had been and closed her eyes.
      He returned to kissing her leisurely, as if he had all the time in the world to strip her naked and fuck her. Just when she thought he would continue with this excruciatingly slow pace all night, he captured one of her exposed nipples between his teeth. Moaning against his lips, her eyes flew open to find Xavier still kissing her. How could that be? If his mouth was on hers then who was currently suckling on her nipple? The man was good, but not that good.
      Tensing, she immediately pulled her mouth away, looking down her body to find a pair of arctic blue eyes staring directly up at her. It was the man she’d seen from her balcony. What the hell is he doing here?
      Releasing her nipple from his mouth with a wet pop, he straightened, raising himself to full height. She began to feel surrounded and dwarfed by these two men. There was just so much male in the room. Her first instinct was to cover her breasts, which she quickly did, earning a scowl from the blond stranger.
      “Calista, I’d like you to meet Zane. Z for short.”
      Cali looked back and forth at both men, taking a few steps sideways to collect her thoughts. She had no idea what was going on, but the night took on an alarming note. Fighting back a small panic attack, she gauged the distance to the door.
      Xavier stepped toward her, tipping her chin up with his long fingers. “Don’t go, belleza.” His eyes were completely mesmerizing, as was his voice. She felt her body’s reaction to him in every pulse of her clit.
      “I-I don’t understand. I…” she stammered, her voice drifting off. The two of them acted as if they did this little routine together often. As if encroaching on the other man’s territory, however temporary, was the most natural thing in the world. She was aware there were men who liked to share women. Granted, she’d never met anyone like that, but she’d heard enough about them from friends like Emily.
      Already, she could imagine her best friend’s response to this situation. If Emily even believed her to begin with. Cali was having a difficult time taking it all in.
      “Have you ever been with two men at the same time?”
      Cali’s head spun around as Zane spoke. His voice was as heavily accented as his counterpart, though he didn’t sound or look Spanish. Her eyes were drawn to his chest and she couldn't help but stare at the impressive expanse of muscle. To meet one perfect male was luck, but two was unbelievable. It was even more unbelievable that they both wanted her.
       Unable to speak, she merely shook her head in response.
      “Together we can bring you a great deal of pleasure, Calista.”
      While he spoke, his hand reached out to gently stroke her arm. His touch was a direct contradiction to the heated intentions she could see in his gaze. She didn’t have a lot of experience in this area, but Cali could recognize desire when she saw it.
      Remembering back to the night before, she recalled being drawn to Zane. From the moment she’d caught him staring at her, there had been a pull toward him. Her dreams last night had been filled with those visions. She’d even entertained fantasies about him all afternoon. That was until she had met Xavier.
      Turning toward Xavier, she knew he could sense her confusion, but he seemed content to let her make up her own mind. He obviously didn’t want to pressure her into making a decision.
      “Calista?”
      The sensation of Zane’s thumb brushing over her knuckles jolted her mind back to the lingering question. No, she’d never been with two men at the same time. Could she really do something like that now? When hoping to find someone to pass some time with, never did she imagine it would include two men.
      The few sexual encounters Cali had had before could never be considered wanton. In fact, they were more instructional in nature. She would touch her partners where they wanted her to touch, and they would do the same to her in return. Both parties would find satisfaction and the man would then promise to call. Cali would walk away knowing that her phone would never ring, but it was okay. She had a feeling that tonight would indeed qualify as wanton and she would more than likely regret it for the rest of her life if she chose to leave.
      “We will make you feel all the things you’ve ever read about or dreamed,” Zane said, bringing her hand to his lips and placing a kiss in her palm. “All you have to do is trust us. We won’t hurt you…” He paused and then chuckled. “Unless you beg us nicely to do so.”
      Her eyes widened at the last part and she worried her bottom lip with her teeth. She couldn't believe she was even considering what was being offered. Zane continued.
      “We’ll worship every inch of your gorgeous body and not a single freckle will be left untouched. By the time we’re finished, you will…”
      He stopped, and Cali fought to make her tongue work. “I will what?”
      Xavier chose that moment to step behind her until she was sandwiched once more between the two irresistible men. He then finished his friend’s sentence for him. “By the time we’re finished, you’ll know what it feels like to be fucked, utterly and completely.”

New Release from Lexi Ryan! Giveaway and Excerpt for Going Under




Title: Going Under
Series: The Blackhawk Boys #3 
Author: Lexi Ryan
Genre: New Adult
 Release Date: December 6, 2016



If I met Alexandra DeLuca for the first time today, I would only need one word to describe her:

MINE.
 


She's everything she was when we said goodbye. Beautiful, stubborn, sweet...and off-limits. 

After two years leading separate lives, our worlds have collided. Now that she's back home working and taking classes beside me, she's bound to make me lose my mind.

She's all I've ever wanted, all I've ever dreamed of, and the one thing I can never have. 

Not because she's my best friend's sister.
Not because all four DeLuca brothers would come at me with fists swinging if I hurt her.
Not even because she's way better than I will ever deserve.
 


I keep my distance because we didn't meet for the first time today. We met five years ago when I was a different person. When my demons ruled me. Even though I've changed--even though I've gotten my life together and become a better man--I can't change the past. And the secrets that haunt me would destroy her. 

But I'm not the only one with secrets, and when the truth comes out, I don't know where to turn. What do you do when your world washes away beneath your feet and you feel like you're drowning? What do you do when the woman you promised yourself you'd never touch is the only thing that can keep you from going under?

GOING UNDER is a standalone novel and the third set in the world of The Blackhawk Boys series.
 


Football. Secrets. Lies. Passion. These boys don’t play fair. Which Blackhawk Boy will steal your heart?

“I don’t want you to think you need to do this now that I’m back.”

He steps forward, close enough that I can feel his heat. “Do what?”

“Spend time with me. Come to my rescue. Make sure I make it home safely.” I wave a hand. “All of it. You don’t owe me anything.”

“You think I’m here out of a sense of obligation?” He laughs. “Fuck, that’s insane.”

“Is it? Can we just talk about the elephant in the room?” I ask him.

He’s staring at me, and it takes a few beats for him to process that I’ve spoken. I’d laugh if seeing him drunk didn’t also unsettle something deep inside me, some old part of me that still wants Sebastian to be my rock. But I’m not the girl recovering in the hospital anymore. I’m not the girl crying at her sister’s grave. Those experiences are part of who I am now, but I’m more, too. I’m stronger. I don’t need Sebastian’s strength to hold me steady. Or I shouldn’t.

I tuck my hands into my pockets. “Two years ago, the night before I left for Colorado…” He goes still, and I can’t make myself finish the sentence.

“I crossed a line,” he says.

I snort. God, the problem isn’t that he crossed a line—it’s that he didn’t. “Are you serious right now?”

He cuts his eyes to me again, the muscle ticking in his jaw. “It was a mistake, and you’re obviously still angry with me about it.”

I step away from him and wrap my hands around the porch rail. If I let myself look at him, I’ll overanalyze every expression that crosses his face. I realize I’m holding my breath and exhale. “It was a shitty thing for you to do.”

He’s silent for several heavy beats of my heart. When I can’t stand the silence anymore, I release the railing and turn to face him. “Let me make sure I understand,” he says. “Since I almost kissed you two years ago, I can’t walk you home anymore?”

“I don’t want…” I take a breath as I search for the words to explain how this makes me feel. “I don’t want a pity friendship.”

“What the fuck is a pity friendship?”

“It’s when you spend time with someone because you don’t want them to be alone.”

“You’re an expert on what I want now?”

“I think you made it perfectly clear what you do and don’t want from me two years ago.”

He takes half a step forward, and his gaze drops to my mouth. Can you feel someone looking at your lips? Because his gaze is so intense on my mouth right now that I’m sure I could close my eyes and still feel it as distinctly as a touch. “Dammit, Alex, if I’d have known you’d hold such a grudge for thirty seconds of weakness, I would have kissed you that night. Fuck my better judgment. At least then I’d know how you taste.”

I swallow hard and tell my pounding heart not to make more of this than it is. “You’re drunk, Sebastian.”

Stepping back, he drags a hand over his face. “Yeah.” He takes another step back. “Good night, Alex.”

I unlock the door and go inside, shutting it behind me without looking at him again. Slowly, I take the stairs up to my old room, close the door behind me, and lean against it. Only then do I allow myself to squeeze my eyes shut and take a long, deep breath to calm my racing heart.

His words replay in my head, making the muscles in my stomach grow tight. Just once I’d like Sebastian Crowe to make good on one of the fantasies he inspires. Just once I’d like him to follow me into this room and lock the door before pushing me against it and lowering his mouth to mine. I’d like to feel those rough hands slide under my shirt to unbutton my jeans…

I pull out my phone and text Bailey, letting her know I made it home okay. Then, without washing my face or changing my clothes, I fall into bed, close my eyes, and break a promise to myself by fantasizing about Sebastian Crowe.

“At least then I’d know how you taste.”

New YA author alert!! If You Wish from Cassandra Sage Briskman Now Available!

if-you-wish-blast-banner



Title:   If You Wish
Author:   Cassandra Sage Briskman
Published:  September 14th, 2016
Publisher:  Waterside Productions
Genre: Young Adult
Recommended Age:  12+
:
Ella Jackson is an ordinary teenage girl whose father just happens to be a rich and famous film director. Her life must be awesome, right? Not exactly. Her father is always working and her stepmother and two step sisters basically live to make Ella miserable. Life sucks, until Ella meets Julian. But, instead of falling in love with him, she finds herself falling in love with the hottest boy at school…her step sister’s boyfriend. In a remarkable coming of age story written by a real teenager, If You Wish confronts bullying, drug abuse, and LGBT rights in a story that is anything but a fairy tale.


Usually fairy tales start off once upon a time, blah, blah, blah. I guess I could start off my story that way, but then the story wouldn’t be right. The truth is, I’m not a princess. And this really isn’t a fairy tale. There is no magic fairy godmother who goes around turning poor girls into princesses and pumpkins into carriages. So if you want that kind of story I suggest you read something else. This story is going to be about me, Ella. Just plain old boring me. I’m just a normal 16-year-old girl. I’m not special or different in any way at all. That is, I never thought I was special, until I met Julian. But he comes in later. You’ll have to start from the beginning. So go on. If you wish…




Cassandra Sage Briskman is a 16 year old YA author, who splits her time between Los Angeles, California and Brooklyn, NY. If You Wish is her debut novel.

His hand slides down my body to the waistband of my pants. He pauses.

The pressure of his hand is a reminder of what I want. Of what I desire. Pushing my body firmly into his, I let him know what I need.

I need is his hands on me. His fingers in me.

He finds the button and undoes it. Wedges his hand between the thin material and my skin.

The pads of his fingertips slowly work themselves further downward. Each inch they travel sends a wave of chills to flow through my body; each nerve ending is pricked alive.

He pushes his hand lower and lower until I feel him trace the lace covering my most intimate spot. A whisper against my sensitive flesh.

“Please,” I moan, rotating my hips to help alleviate the hunger growing inside me. The flimsy material that covers me moves aside and his fingers trace down the seam of my skin. The movements are so slow, every part of my body quivers with anticipation.

“Dr. Montgomery, your next patient is here.” The receptionist’s voice slams through our lust filled haze.
