Only You cover reveal!!


Only You, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is coming March 12th!

Title: Only You
Author: Melanie Harlow
Publishing Date: March 12th
Designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs
Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry


Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I’ve seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall—a different one every time—and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I’m looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there’s no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we’re watching 007 flicks together, and I’ll admit—he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says “I’ll come back for her” and he begs me for help, I can’t turn him down.
But it’s a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there’s a chance for us.
I don’t want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.

Gentleman Nine blog tour!


Amazon | iBooks | Amazon Paperback | Nook | Kobo | AUDIO Amazon | Audible

        From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.       Growing up, the three of us were friends.   He was the nerd.   I was the playboy.   She was the beauty.       Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.   He lied.       I went off to college, and he got the girl.   Amber never knew how I felt.   They were together for years—before he broke her heart.       Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.   When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.       Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.   One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.   Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.   Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.   She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)   Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.   When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.            


What can i say? i am a HUGE Penelope Ward fan. It takes A LOT to get me on the "one click author," band wagon- but i can honestly say, since Gemini, her first book- 15 books ago, i have been hooked for her words. And while she's totally grown as an author- she always has that certain quality that most authors strive to have- uniqueness. the ability to melt your insides and also harden your heart. 

I have been head over heels in love with her second hero- Jake Green since 2013, and I haven't found a hero that has ever surpassed him. Although many heroes I read come close- none are my Jake. That said, Channing gives Jake a run for his money in this story about friends to lovers. 

Amber has just been broken up with. Rory ended things with her after a long time in a relationship- and they have been friends for a long time. It used to be the three musketeers- Amber, Rory, and Channing. But after Channing left for college, Rory swooped in and made his move- staking claim on what Channing thought was his. Rory and Channing made a pact that Amber was off limits- but little did Channing know that Rory had ulterior motives. With Rory out of the picture and Channing in need of a place to stay- he calls Amber. Never knowing what that one phone call might lead to. 

Channing was the ultimate super swoony guy, he had to fake being "Gentleman Nine," an escort service Amber signed up for, for her best interest. (and also maybe a little of his as well.) Channing was not hard to fall for, in fact it was super easy. He was very charming and totally protective. And to a fault- patient and understanding. 

Amber was albeit a bit insecure, but still she was everything and more to me as a heroine. She's compassionate and selfless towards people around her. Amber was heartbroken but I like how she wasn't the fragile type of heroine that we have all read about. 

After Channing explains that he was in fact Gentleman Nine, he also then decides he can be the one to take care of her needs, can Amber handle that, and not get attached?

Then the plot twist happens- and I started to freak out. What would Amber do, how would she proceed? I definitely teared up a few times thinking of how I thought the story would end and how Penelope was going to end it. 

You will have to read this ride of a story yourself to figure out just what i am talking about, it is SO worth it. Definitely one of my favorite Penelope books to date!

Cover reveal from Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward!!


We are thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, REBEL HEIR the first book in a new, sexy duet releasing on April 9th!

Model: Micah Truitt
Photographer: Leonardo Corredor
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.
