If you like good guy geek heroes who look hot in kilts, strong,
intelligent heroines, and poignant romance, then you’ll love Almost Elinor,

As a cyber war threatens cosplayer, geek, app designer, and cyber security

own. Her English ex-boyfriend wants her back and will stop at nothing to
reclaim her heart and separate her from Austin.
When things get tough, what does every good Highlander do? Take his
English lass to a good old-fashioned Scottish gathering in the suburbs of
Seattle, of course. But this gathering presents another set of problems…

Excerpt
I put my
hand on his arm. “I’m serious, Austin. You gave me an opening the day we
met, a shot at something between us. I shut you down then, afraid it was too
soon.
“When
our eyes met at the party, I realized my mistake. Maybe I didn’t have all the
time left I thought I did. Maybe I didn’t have any at all. And if that were the
case, what would I regret?” My pulse raced almost as frantically as it had
at the party. “When I looked in your eyes, I was almost knocked off my
feet with the connection between us. I can’t explain it. But there’s something between us.”
He didn’t
say anything for a moment, just stared into his glass, head down, ignoring his
phone. I couldn’t read his face or his thoughts. I supposed I deserved that.
It’s amazing the scenarios the mind can run through in the breadth of seconds.
I braced myself for rejection. Well, it was my turn, wasn’t it?
Finally, he
finished his drink, set it next to him, and leaned forward with his elbows on
his thighs. He looked over at me. “You felt it, too? I thought you
did.” He grinned, sweetly tentative. “What are you thinking?”
I put my
hand on his knee. “I think we deserve to explore it.”
“I
thought that’s what we’re doing.” His voice was soft with emotion. “I
thought that’s the game we were playing.”
I felt
convicted. I hadn’t meant to lead him on. Had he seen through me? Had he
realized before I did that on the surface we were pretending for the public,
but beneath it, the relationship was real.
“I
don’t want to play games, anymore.” I held his gaze.
“So
you’re saying?”
“We
make this real.” I felt the urgency to get the words out before I lost my
nerve. “That we do more than pretend. We date for real. And…see what happens.”
My mouth went dry. I wished I hadn’t polished off my drink so cavalierly.

The Unrequited by Saffron A. Kent

 

Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017


Blurb
Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from
unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive
calling.
What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps
seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry
professor—the married poetry professor.
Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and
broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry,
but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade,
Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.
Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in
the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he
kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you
again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget
all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.
NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive
topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt
I’m hit by
a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body,
and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the
blame for it later.
I break the
rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss
of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t
enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time
on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there
touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly,
he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not
for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark,
raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you
trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift
ponytail.
He couldn’t
tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign.
Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches
closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely
closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God,
does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my
heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I
ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y
voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a
second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever
this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in
the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”

 

Author Bio
Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian
Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book
world.
I’m a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the
butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind
of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally
ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by
the end of it, you’ll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love,
no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
