Her name is Tempest Kensington.
She’s eighteen years old.
She’s my student, and I want to know how sweet she tastes when she’s claimed for the first time.
I’m her headmaster. I’m twenty years older than her. But damn the implications. Screw the consequences. I know I’m blurring the lines, but I. Do. Not. Care.
Tempest Kensington is a grade-A brat. And she’s about to get a very thick, very firm dose of my discipline – over my knee and onhers.

Excerpt

Prologue

Niki
What happens when something you weren’t looking for comes along, and it’s more than you ever could have imagined? Making you do things you never thought you were capable of…changing you?
Dance with me.
Three simple words, demanding, challenging…tempting.
He came into my life, flipping it upside down, causing me to turn into someone I didn’t recognize. Secrets blurring lines between fantasy and reality.
Closing my eyes, clearing my thoughts, I push the demons down, ignoring the temptation that screams for me to run toward it instead of fighting against it. Those inner demons, creating a battlefield, dividing the heart.
I wasn’t always like this. There was a time when I was searching for something more. Anything that would give me a reason to care. Someone to tell me they wanted me.
Needed me.
I thought I had it but was too afraid of losing everything. Of losing the comfort of his security.
But, those three little words were all it took for me to freefall over that line. Risking it all.

**********

“Dance with me.” His gravelly voice tempts me over the pulsating beat bumping through the speakers.
No he didn’t? I swing around ready to give this guy my best “back the fuck up” glare… only it doesn’t come. Steely blue eyes meet mine, throwing me off balance.
“Now.” His hand reaches for my elbow, steadying me.
“I can’t…” I nod back to Aubrey, who looks like she doesn’t have a care in the world, but I know different. This is her first weekend without her daughter, Reece, since she and her ex-husband got a divorce.
“Yes, you can, and you will.” His hand slides from my elbow to my hand, his grip firm and strong.
Everything about this moment is more than just an invitation to dance.
Intense.
The way his eyes land on mine. The way he tugs me across the dance floor and into a dark corner.
Dangerous.
“Here.” He yanks my hand, causing my body to collide with his.
“Oh!” It slips out before I have a chance to stop it.
“Yeah. Oh.” He smirks before he pulls me in tighter, and I can feel every single ridge of muscle hidden behind his suit and tie. “Just feel it. Feel us.” He begins to rock back and forth. Too slow for the music, but it’s a rhythm that promises more.
Throwing my arms over his shoulders, I let go.
Our bodies tangle. Eyes singing the forbidden lyrics, song after song. My mouth dying to taste the unspoken words.
Raising a hand, he tucks my hair behind my ear, before leaning in, whispering, “I’m going to kiss you now.” His words are a warning, not a question.
I nod, giving him the permission he doesn’t need.
His steel eyes pin me in place as he lowers his mouth so close I can taste the scotch on his breath. Hovering. Teasing.
He is a predator and I’m his prey. I have nowhere to go, nothing to do but wait for his attack. My mouth waters; my body waits to be devoured.
“But first…” His eyes leave mine, scanning the crowd before he spins me around and slams my back against the metal wall. My back arches away from the cold and settles into the warmth of his arms as his mouth comes crashing down on mine.
Captivated.

COVER REVEAL - Fortune by Lauren K. McKellar




Title: Fortune
Author: Lauren K. McKellar
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: KILA Designs
Release Date: November 16, 2017



Blurb

Grace Storey can’t wait to escape her small-town chaos and head for the big city for three main reasons: Work. Better cell-phone service. And the prospect of meeting her very own Prince Charming. After all, when the guy you crushed on since high school turns out to be a psychopath, and the only viable alternative is Creepy Keith, you need to take drastic measures to ensure life as a crazy cat lady is not in your future.
What she doesn't need is a bad-boy musician with a penchant for getting under her skin. Sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll are the last things on her mind.

Darcy Fortune has three things on his mind: Sex. Drugs. And rock ’n’ roll (in that order). It’s how it has to be to keep the pain from his past at bay. After all, when you’ve hurt someone you love, it’s easier to numb the pain to keep on surviving. Easier to turn off your feelings than face the cold, harsh truth.
What he doesn’t expect is the sassy journalist with so much soul in her eyes. Could this woman be the one who breaks him?

Staying in control has never been as hard as this.

Fortune is a brand new standalone romantic comedy from Lauren K. McKellar.

Excerpt

My underwear is missing.
I know it like I know how to make the perfect meringue mix in minutes. I know it like I know that the grapes on the vineyard are just starting to grow, perfect little plump circles of ripeness.
I sigh, staring up at the washing line once more.
Yep.
The pair of plain white cotton knickers are most certainly no longer there.
And it could have been anyone. It could have been a magpie picking them off the line. My sister, Eva, having a romp in the vines with her sexy fiancé, needing a pair to walk home in after hers had been ripped off in a fit of passion. My grandmother deciding they were inappropriate for public display.
But my gut tells me different.
My gut tells me that perhaps my ex-boyfriend is the one to blame for the panty-napping, and that I’ll never see those comfortable tighty-whities again.
I run my hands through my hair, staring up at the clear blue sky. Why can’t I just have one morning where I feel in control? Where things in my life happen the way I want instead of dictated by someone else?
“Grace!”
I look back toward the homestead.
Eva stands on the front porch, waving at me. “I’ve made you an appointment with my therapist for next week.”
“Pardon?” I frown. What is she talking about?
“My therapist. She’s really good,” she replies. “After everything that happened with the fire, I thought it might help.”
“I don’t need a therapist,” I reply.
“You think that now, but trust me, once you see her, you’ll love having someone to talk to.” She pauses. “Oh! Speaking of, I also signed you up for a new phone contract with Connor and me. We got a good package deal, lots of inclusions, and …” She keeps talking, but I don’t listen. She’s organising my life. Doing it again.
And I know she wants nothing but the best for me, but I’m sick of not being in control. I’m sick of being little Grace Storey, the younger sister who has to laugh off her ex-boyfriend’s borderline stalkerish behaviour, the one who does as she’s told all the damn time.
I’m sick of it all.
And sometimes in life, you need a sign. A sign that perhaps it’s time to shake things up, to move forward. To go and find your fortune.
And as I look up at the clothesline, the spot where my underwear should have been, it’s never been clearer to me in my life. It’s time I leave this small country town for the big city, and start a new life.
It’s time I take control.

RELEASE BLITZ - Last Words by Shari J. Ryan




Title: Last Words
Author: Shari J. Ryan
Genre: Literary Romance
Release Date: October 9, 2017


Blurb

Last Words, where Non-Fiction meets Fiction, and the lines in between are blurred by forbidden love.

Amelia - 1942:

The inside of my closet held the last bit of my freedom before I was torn from my home and shoved onto a dark train.

Our destination was even darker. “Women and children to the right. Men to the left,” they shouted at us.

Everything was taken from me, leaving only the smoke filled air, piercing screams, and soul-burning cries.

I was slowly starved and weakened to the bone, but there was a man—a Nazi—who brought me extra food. He called himself a prisoner too, but he scared me, and I wondered if he was the enemy I should fear the most.

Emma - Current Day:

My grandmother hid her past in an old diary under her bed. The tattered, brown leather book sat there for years until she asked me to find it and read her unspoken words. Now, her stories and secrets are consuming every moment of my life.

She’s dying ... and asking for a man no one in our family has ever heard of.

I never imagined a hand-written book could change my entire life, but it has. It opened my eyes to a new beginning, and I learned that love is not the unsaid word my grandmother has refused to speak. It’s an action—it’s longevity, taboo and sometimes forbidden. Do we fight for what’s wrong, or do we spend our lives searching for what’s right?

Last words were never spoken because love doesn’t stop until a heart is no longer beating.
