Falling in love? Courtney Grayson has been there, done that. 

Men, who needs them? Love wasn’t everything she thought it would be. This time around, she’s doing things differently. She hasn’t sworn off men for good; she just isn’t interested in settling. Trusting someone with her heart again? Someday, but not today. 

Falling in love? Sorry, Clay Bradshaw is not the guy for you. 

He’s never been in love and he doesn’t see it happening. Hooking up can be fun, but more often than not, women are a distraction he doesn’t need. He’s a busy man, and doesn’t have time to date, let alone fall in love. Will someone ever change that? There’s always a chance, someday.

Life doesn’t always go as planned, and love may find them both on the other side of someday.

He takes a deep breath. “Tell me what you want, Courtney.”

I shift, pressing my legs together. “That day, in your condo.”


“I didn’t want you to stop.” I don’t even recognize my own voice.

“I didn’t want to stop.”

I flick off the light. “What would you have done if you didn’t stop?”

“Where are you?”

“In my room.”

“Are you in bed?”

I wet my lips. “Yes.”

“What are you wearing?”

“A robe.”

He groans. “Are you wearing anything under that robe?”

I gulp. “No.”

I hear the rush of air leaving his lungs. “Will you touch yourself if I tell you?”

I hurry across my room and lock my door. “Do you want me to?”

“God, yes.”

Suddenly shy, I giggle.

“You think I’m funny?”

I cover my face even though he can’t see me. “I’ve never done this before.”

“Does the thought of me touching you turn you on?”

I let out a ragged breath. “Yes.”

“Just imagine your hands are mine. Can you do that?”

“I can.”

“Remember how you were against that window?”

“I do.”

“I wanted you so bad.”

“Tell me.”

“Imagine my hands under your sweater, that innocent looking sweater. Put your hands on your breasts. God, they felt so good. Rub your nipples.”

I do as he says, imagining myself up against that window. His body is pressed up behind me, his hands caressing my breasts and teasing my nipples. I moan.

“You like that don’t you? I slide one hand down your body and stroke your clit.”

I whimper.

“Spread your legs, Courtney.” I do as he says, my middle finger teasing my clit.

“Are you wet?”

“So wet,” I gasp.

“Fuck. I slide my hand down further and dip it right into your wetness. Do you like that?”

“Oh, yes.”

“I push it deep before I pull it out and rub your wetness all over your clit.”

“Oh, my God.”

“I’m so fucking hard.”

“Are you touching yourself?” I ask.

“I am. You like that?”

“Uh hun.”

“What do you want me to do with my cock, Courtney?”

“I want you to put it in me.”

“Fuck. All right, I hitch up that sexy-ass skirt you’re wearing and slide your panties down. Your ass is so fucking hot. I pull off your sweater too.”

“Do I move my hands off the window?”


“To get my sweater off?” I pant.”

“No keep your hands on the window.”

“How do I get it off?”

“I rip it off. It’s just gone.”


“I pull your hips back to me and press you hard against the window so your breasts are pressing on the glass. I slide my cock between your legs.”

“When did you take off your clothes?”

“They melted off. Fuck. I don’t know.”

I bite back a laugh.

“Am I losing you here?” he asks.

“No, no, keep going. Your cock is between my legs.”

“Fuck. Say that again.”

His tone makes me shiver. “Your,” I draw out each word. “Cock is between my legs.”

“God, that is sexy. All right. So, I rub it back and forth across your pussy. I’m still rubbing your clit with one hand.”

“I want you in me.”

“I slide my cock into your tight, wet pussy.”

My finger circles my clit furiously, as I imagine him filling me.

“You like my cock, Courtney?”

“I do.”

“Pinch your nipples.”

I do and feel my orgasm build. “I’m so close.”

“I grab your hips and bury my cock inside you.”

I feel it crest. “Oh, God. Oh, God. Oh, God.”

“Let me hear you come, baby.”

“Yes. Oh, God. Yes.”


I pant, trying to catch my breath.

“That was so fucking hot.”

“Did you?” “All over my fucking hand.”

She never thought it would go this far. It started out so innocently, but now had taken on a life of its own. Problem is Lindsay Palmer doesn't know how to stop. Even worse, she doesn't want to stop. Her daily deceit has become both her greatest pleasure and deepest shame. Thousands of people love her, but would they if they knew the truth? 

A simple favor for his baby sister brings Lindsay into Luke Jamieson's life. Something about this girl keeps her on his mind hours and days after each time they meet. Now here he is, falling in love with a liar.

All he wants is for her to let him in, and maybe together he can lead her out of the cage of her own construction. Will the truth set her free or have her lies already destroyed everything?

Blog Tour: Something For the Pain by Victoria Ashley


Tempting, inked and highly addictive. Alex is all that and more… I’ve made a lot of mistakes – ones I’m not proud of, and definitely ones that have left their marks both mentally and physically. Things got lonely; I got lost in my own fucked up mind and in the end it left me fucked out of my mind and unable to fight – or at least win. That life’s over for me and I’ve moved on. Six months into tattooing at Blue’s and already I’m the most wanted and sought out tattooist. My biggest clientele consists of women. They come into the shop, end up in my bed and we both come out happy. It’s been my release since I’ve stopped fighting. It’s become part of the “new” me. But when Tripp reappears in my life, I can’t deny the fact that I would do anything for that girl. So when she asks me to move in with her and her ‘boyfriend’ – our other childhood friend – I never expected for things to get so fucked up and twisted that I would find myself only more attracted to her by each passing second or wanting to protect her from everything that isn’t me. I have worked so hard over the years to suppress my feelings for her but when I find out that her and Lucas have been having an open relationship, I have the strong urge to rip his heart straight from his chest – to destroy the very thing that keeps him breathing. What I didn’t expect was for Lucas to ask what he did. For him to ask me to do the one thing I have secretly longed for since I was old enough to know what the need was. The second thing I never expected was the look of need that I saw in Tripp’s eyes when he asked. One night of free passion could change our lives forever.  I never said that was a good thing either…



I hear my door push open, but I’m too tired to acknowledge it. It can’t be any later than seven thirty in the morning, so I just stay lying on my stomach. 

      I hear something get set down on my computer desk before I feel the bed dip down next to me. It must be Lucas saying goodbye before he has to get ready for work.     

  Groaning, I reach out and grip his upper thigh, surprised at how hard and thick it feels in my hand. I guess I never really paid his legs much attention before. “Ughhhh… my head. Why did you give me all those shots last night? I feel like hell.” I run my hand up higher, stopping just below his package. Why does he feel so good right now?    
   “You look like hell too,” Alex says playfully.  

     Shocked, I let go of his thigh and grip onto the sheet to cover my bare breasts, while maneuvering my way to my knees. I almost forgot that Alex finally moved his stuff in last night. Man, I really must’ve had a few too many shots.      

“Crap, Alex. I thought you were Lucas.” I reach up with one hand to cover my face as my head starts pounding. “I guess I drank a little too much last night.” I pull my hand away and squint from the light shining in my room. “I almost grabbed your dick, Alex. You weren’t even going to say anything?”       Grinning, Alex stands up, and I can’t help but to notice how sexy he looks, wearing only a tight pair of boxer briefs. Not only do I get him as a roommate, but now I’ll also have to see him running around in his underwear. Talk about a distraction.     

 “Just a few too many.” He runs his hand through his wet hair. “And I’m not going to stop something that feels good. I’m sure your hand was enjoying it too much. Now sit up straight.”   
    I watch as Alex walks over to my desk and grabs a plate and a glass of something. My head hurts too much to even pay attention to his words. “What’s this?” I ask as he sets the plate on my lap. “You made me breakfast?”    
   He sets the glass down on the nightstand beside me and I peek over to see that it’s orange juice. “Yeah.” Without another word, he walks into the bathroom. I almost think he’s going back to his room, until he emerges a few seconds later, holding something in his hand. He places two pills into my hand and crosses his arms over his chest. “Ibuprofen. Take those and eat your food.”     
  Not questioning him, I do as told. The first bite of food causes me to smile at its deliciousness. “Oh my goodness, Alex.” I point down at the toast before taking another bite and quickly chewing it. “This is absolutely delicious. Wow.”  

     He smiles. “Tell me something I don’t know.”  
     I toss a piece of egg at his head. “Cocky much?” I laugh as he grabs my hand and takes a bite of the eggs that I was just about to eat. “Very much so.” He chews the eggs and rubs a hand over his stiff abs. “What you doing before work?”     
  “I was going to stop by and visit Tara. You want to come with?”     

  He nods his head and starts backing away to the bathroom. “Yeah. I’m sure she misses the shit out of me.”   
    I laugh, accidently spitting the mouthful of toast out. “Seriously?” I cover my mouth and smile. “It’s only been like a week. Trust me, she does not miss you.”      

He flashes me his dimples. “We’ll see about that.” He gets ready to walk out of my room, but stops and grabs onto the frame. “Oh and Lucas left for work already. He said he’ll see you around one.”       Figures he wouldn’t say bye. “Alright… thanks.” I take a sip of my orange juice. “I’ll shower after I eat and then we can go. Sound good?”   
  “Everything out of your mouth sounds good.” He attempts to catch the egg in his mouth as I throw it at him. “You have a horrible aim. I’m going to go downstairs and work out for about twenty minutes and then take a quick shower. I’ll shower downstairs so I don’t slow you down.”     
  Eyeing his body up and down, I swallow, remembering the dirty sounds coming from the downstairs shower last night. I tried so hard to block them out, but it was pretty hard to miss. I have to admit that hearing Alex fuck, both turned me on and bothered me at the same time. A part of me wanted to imagine myself taking her place, while the other part wanted to pretend that I wasn’t imagining it at all.   

   Then Lucas came up here saying dirty things to me about Alex… once again, turning me on so bad that I practically knocked him down and jumped on his dick. We had wild, meaningless sex, and then I sent him down to his room. Sleeping in the same bed as Lucas is something that I haven’t done yet. I’ve only slept next to Alex, and for some reason… I want to keep it that way for now.    
      “Sounds good. We can take your truck.” I smile while taking another bite of food.    

  “You just can’t get enough of my awesome driving, can you? You like it fast and wild.” He winks. “I like that.”   

    I point my fork at him. “Just hurry up so we can get going.”       
“Sure thing, babe.” He dodges out of my room, leaving me grinning from ear to ear. He always has a way of making me smile. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him.

SFTP teaser 

WOW! Ms. Victoria nailed it!
Something For the Pain is Alex and Tripp's story.
At first, I was pissed with Alex because of how
a man-whore he is but as the story goes, I got to love him.
He's not what I expected him to be, he's a man
who will drop everything for the people he loves.
This book is really good! It made me feel
to much emotions on the characters and story.
Ms. Victoria did a fantastic job in making
this book full of surprises and hot!
Loved it!

Release Blitz: Blackbird Anthology by Dahlia Donovan

When a group of lonely shifters came together during their service with the Royal marines, they
 never imagined the strong pack that would develop between them.  Channeling their special
 operative training, they built a security firm with two alpha wolves at the head of a motley crew
 of shifters not known for playing well-together.
They’ve lived their lives as outcasts from their own individual species of shifters choosing to 
form a family with each other instead.  Until Now.  Follow the Blackbird pack as they fall 
victim to love one by one.

      Shooting off the bed with a shuddering gasp, Ronan ran a shaking hand across his sweaty brow.  He glanced to his left to find Lorcan still soundly sleeping—thankfully. Ruddy nightmares. After all these years, it seemed the horrors of the last incident in 
Afghanistan might never completely fade away. 
      He reached down to rub the scarred tissue at the end of what remained of his leg.  Lorcan
 grumbled incoherently at the jostling and rolled over on his side.  The hare shifter would be
 angry in the morning if he discovered his mate had suffered in the night without waking him.
      Too bleeding bad.
      Nothing angered Ronan more than being treated like he was broken.  The damn blast had
 done nothing more than temporarily steal his ability to function.  With his state-of-the-art prosthetic, he’d believed himself to be as close to what he’d been in the past as ever.  
Everyone else in his life didn’t seem as convinced, Lorcan being the rare exception. 
      “Leg bothering you?” Lorcan leaned up on his elbow with a mixture of weariness and concern 
mingling in his eyes. “Another nightmare?”
      They both suffered them after the living hell Afghanistan had been.  The dreams had lessened
 over the years. Ronan wondered if they’d ever completely rid themselves of the lingering memories.
      Lorcan’s warm hand moved over to cover Ronan’s.  Twisting around on the bed, Ronan 
leaned over his shifter until their lips met.  He’d always found his mate’s lips to be remarkably 
full and soft, given nothing else about the man could even be considered soft.                                                                                                  
      Lorcan traced Ronan’s bottom lip with his tongue and reached up to catch him by the back of the neck to hold him close. “I’m on top this time.”
      “No, you’re not.” Ronan’s brogue tended to deepen and roll seductively when he was half-asleep and in the mood. He blocked Lorcan’s attempt to roll them over and caught the shifter’s 
arms in strong, calloused hands. “Easy there, fuzzy britches, you’re not going anywhere, 
got that straight?”

Dahlia Donovan started out working in the insurance world. After ten years, she morphed her
 love of investigating accidents and studying people into writing about them. She's a bit of a 
hermit and despises being in front of a camera. Her life wouldn't be complete without her
 husband and her massive collection of books and video games.

Her Immortal Viking - Book Cover 



Viking Warrior. Immortal Slave. Freed by Love.
An original contemporary fairy tale inspired by Norse mythology
Penny pleads for divine intervention from overwork and mountainous debt one desperate, lonely night. She sings songs of praise, chants like a yogi, and rubs her belly like Buddha until the crystal charm on her navel shimmers, hoping to draw the attention of someone up there.
From the place between heaven and earth, in the west beyond the seas, an immortal hears Penny’s cries. Once a fearless Viking warrior, Gunnar has been cast into eternal servitude by an angry god and made a Light Elf. While Penny sleeps, he comes to earth from Alfheim for a single night to complete her tasks. When she awakens and confronts him, the handsome immortal kisses her, sparking a night of forbidden passion. By dawn, the couple has fallen in love.
Dark forces target Penny, seeking revenge for Gunnar’s earthly misdeeds. To protect his mortal lover, Gunnar takes up his sword to defend her. Though his strength and courage are unmatched, it might be the power of Gunnar and Penny’s love that saves them both.



He smoothed her hair and rubbed a thick tendril between his thumb and forefinger. “I am Gunnar.” He pronounced the name Goo-nar.
An emblem of the sun, surrounded by a circle, had been branded on the back of his powerful hand. Penny touched the scar while he held a length of her hair, recognizing Freyr’s sacred insignia from her textbooks. “The pain must have been excruciating.” Without thinking, she lifted the old wound to her mouth and laid kisses along its perimeter before pressing a kiss to the icon inside.
Tremors vibrated across her lips when they touched the ancient symbol and her body tingled with the contact. The brand grew warm and then hot against her mouth, though it did not burn. She ran her tongue over the thick scars to erase the heat, and then licked the center, finishing with a tiny swirl.
Gunnar’s gasp of surprise was the last thing she expected when she lifted her head. He released her hair and drew away.
“I’m sorry. I don’t know what got into me. Have I offended you?” She’d always been popular with men, and comfortable around them, but her behavior with Gunnar was bold, even for her. She sat up. “Am I under some kind of spell?”
Gunnar shook his head. “I used my powers to heal you, but your free will remains intact.”
She searched his face for clues about what to do next, because desire shone behind the wary expression in his eyes. Something else shone there, too. Gratitude. Penny waited for Gunnar’s reply without letting go of his disfigured hand.
He said, “Kindness isn’t something I’m used to finding. Perhaps you’d be less inclined toward compassion if you knew what I’d done to deserve this brand of servitude.”
She reached out and draped an arm around his neck to bring him closer. Their gazes locked and held. Gunnar’s eyes were like pools of ice blue water that pulled her in and down.
Her breathing slowed while the sound of her heartbeat rushed blood through her ears. “I am Penelope. And if you’re from Alfheim, I know who and what you are. I just don’t understand why you’re here.” How could she deserve his rare, benevolent gifts? She was just an ordinary woman from an ordinary town, barely scraping by.
His warm breath grazed her cheek in shallow rushes, lifting goose bumps across her skin. His wide, firm mouth smelled of sweet ground parsley and fresh-picked mint. “Sometimes we get what we need, simply because we ask. That’s the beauty and power of the unexpected.”
