Perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins
and Robyn Carr, this sexy yet sweet military romance reunites a headstrong
dancer and a rugged army soldier after one steamy encounter tears them apart. As a dancer who
creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of
stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from
deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After
corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and
exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory
likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few
blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be
Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person,
he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of
anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them,
Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he
is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind.
Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put
everything on the line for love.
Advance praise for All I
Need Is You
“Wendy S. Marcus has penned
a perfect romance in All I Need Is You, with a sexy dancer heroine, a hot
military hero with a sense of humor, and a story you won’t want to end.” —New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor
enjoyed this series. There is absolutely no need at all to read these in order,
however, it was fun to be slightly familiar with Neve as the book began. The
author does a great job bringing the serious effects of war into a sexy
romance. She gives the characters depth and realism by not treating them as
though they can brush off the experiences of war and jump feet first into
By a funny twist of fate, Neve and
Rory end up pen pals. They spend months getting to know each other through
letters, email, and even the occasional skype or phone call. In fact, they
become best friends. Best friends with a raging attraction. When Rory comes
home on leave, he is surprised by Neve who has arrived to bring his fantasy to
life for one night. It’s Neve who ends up with the biggest shock when another
girl from Rory’s life announces that they are engaged, after they light the
back store room of Rory’s family bar on fire with their lust, of course.
Rory eventually makes it back from
the last of his tour and heads straight for Neve, wanting to clear up the
misunderstanding and hopefully have a last fling with Neve before he moves on
with his life.
It certainly isn’t going to be an
easy task. Neve is as stubborn and strong as they come, but he also sees beyond
her exterior to the soft, sweet, and wounded woman beneath. When Neve becomes
deathly ill, Rory demands to help her on her road to recovery and Neve is too
tired to fight him on it. Their chemistry is no less potent, but due to her
sickness, Neve and Rory are given the opportunity to spend time getting to know
each other away from the bedroom.
Unfortunately, their own stubborn
ideas about life, and outside circumstances in the way, it doesn’t look like
these two are destined to be together.
Neve and Rory are really fun
characters. I enjoyed their personalities and it gave a lighter side to a story
that could have been a real downer. Neve’s stubborn attitude got on my nerves
toward the end, but Rory’s stupidity gave her a tiny bit of justification.
With Neve being sick, we spend a
good portion of the story with just Neve and Rory in Neve’s home. However, the
author does a great job keeping the readers interest and throws in enough
interaction with great secondary characters to give the story some flavor.
The story did drag just a hair for
me. I felt a little like we were going in circles until they story finally
moved beyond the “will we, won’t we” tug of war. However, it wasn’t so much as
to turn me off of the book. I very much enjoyed it.
This is a steamy, interesting story
and I think it’s worth the read!

New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff Comes a New Stand-Alone Story.
IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER...
My name is Lily Snow. I am
twenty-five years old, and despite being born with an unattractive face, I have
never doubted who I am: smart, driven, and beautiful on the inside.
Until I met Maxwell Cole.
He's handsome, excessively wealthy,
and the owner of Cole Cosmetics. It's been my dream to work for this man for as
long as I can remember. The good news is he wants to hire me. The bad news is
he wants me for all the wrong reasons. Ugly reasons.
In exchange, he's offered me my
dreams on a silver platter. The job. The title. A beautiful future. But this man
is as messed up and ugly as they come on the inside. I'm not sure anyone can
help him, and he just might take my heart down with him.
“So I just ran without a shirt for a quarter mile and would’ve gotten to go anyway?”
“Not really. But I wanted to make you feel bad. By the way, has anyone ever told you you’re completely mad?”
I laughed and turned around to unravel my tank top and slip it over my head, a huge smile on my face. “So, what time do we leave for the air—”
I suddenly felt his hot sweaty body pressed up against my back, his one hand on my bare waist, the other sweeping my long hair to one side. “No need to put that back on.”
My breath caught in my throat. “Wha-wha-what are you doing?” I whispered, feeling his hands slide up the front of my body and begin touching my breasts over my bra. He was hard. Really, really hard, and straining against my lower back.
“I think that’s fairly obvious; keeping our deal,” he said, his hot breath tickling my neck.
I was about to say something to explain how I didn’t really want him to do what he was doing, but it would’ve been a lie. The heat of his skin on my back, his hard cock pressing into me while his hands massaged my breasts felt better than anything I’d ever experienced.
His lips trailed down the side of my neck and stopped right on the little spot where my shoulder started.
How was this happening? Because wasn’t he…didn’t he have that problem with…?

Heather C. Leigh is the author of the Amazon best selling Famous series. She likes to write about the 'dark' side of fame. The part that the public doesn't get to see, how difficult it is to live in a fishbowl and how that affects relationships.
Heather was born and raised in New England and currently lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 kids, and French Bulldog, Shelby.
She loves the Red Sox, the Patriots, and anything chocolate (but not white chocolate, everyone knows it's not real chocolate so it doesn't count) and has left explicit instructions in her will to have her ashes snuck into Fenway Park and sneakily sprinkled all over while her family enjoys beer, hot dogs, and a wicked good time.

Review - 5 Stars
I say it with every one of her reviews, but it’s not less
true now that it was before. I am NEVER disappointed by an Aurora Rose Reynolds
book! She is not only an automatic 1-click for me, she is a “stop what you are
doing right this minute and read” author. I love revisiting all of Aurora’s
previous characters, and moving from parents to children makes me feel like I’m
growing with the family ad becoming a part of it.
There is something so enticing about the “Boom” in the
Mayson family. And, watching them each fall victim to it makes every persons
story just a little more special. Jax was cute as a little kid, but daaaaamn,
he is a panty-melting, swoon-worthy man. The moment he meets Ellie…BOOM! Not only
do sparks fly, but his heart is forever lost to her. As is traditional, Jax
doesn’t mess about. He’s found the one and he won’t stop until she’s his
To a certain extent, Jax differs a little from the other
men in the family because he has more patience in waiting for Ellie to come
around. It takes her a bit longer and while I know he struggles with wanting
her, he holds back and doesn’t overwhelm her. Their physical relationship takes
a slightly longer course, but that kind of makes for a heck of a lot more
sexual tension. Fanning yourself, sweating, and squirming in your seat, sexual
Jax takes to Ellie’s daughter as though she was his own,
falling as much for her as he does for Ellie. He is sweet and loving,
determined to make them happy and keep them protected.
Ellie has had it rough. Her childhood and aduly life have
been riddled with pain, disappointment, and fear. I can only imagine that being
sold by her mother into human trafficking is the worst of it. But, Ellie is
resilient and determined to get somewhere in life, make the best of things for
herself and her daughter. Enter…Jax Mayson.
Ellie knows there is something between them, but she is understandably
hesitant. As Jax coaxes her to believe in him, in their future, she falls for
him, hard. However, Ellie’s a bit stubborn and from time to time, I wanted to
sit her down and tell her to stop being so obstinate and refusing to accept
what is in front of her.
She has a great personality though, and her little girl
is adorable and hilarious. Aurora’s
characters are always so engaging and Jax, Ellie, & Hope immersed me in
their story. It’s easy to forget that they only exist between the pages of my
book and when it was over, I had to go back and start reading the rest of the
Until Series books to cure my hangover.
As always, 5 fantastical stars and I eagerly await the

Excerpt: Until Jax
“Thank you again for taking
me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her
head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked
near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve
noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms
around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing
herself to stay together.
“I told you I got you,
baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but
every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out
at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It
does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.
“I know,” she whispers, and
the tears I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.
“This is the turnoff.” Her
feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller,
moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with
forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the
top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and
garbage piled up out front.
As soon as I come to a stop,
she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in
the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions
that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.
“Fucking Boom,” I mutter,
getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side,
where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so
fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile,
from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.
