Another Love: Book 2

No longer willing to waste another moment on loneliness, and with life running as smoothly as it could be, neither she nor Luciana were prepared for what was to come.

One call will change everything—the potential for their lives to fall apart staring them both in the face.

Chaos and devastation will threaten to ruin everything they’ve built, but Sam and Luciana refuse to be beaten. Now seeing life from a new perspective, Luciana decides to take their future into her own hands…because hell will freeze over before she loses Sam.

Step back into the lives of Sam and Luciana in this heart-warming, heart-breaking, but ultimately perfect ending to their journey.

 

DEMANDING BOSS

by Clara Reese

Available in Kindle Unlimited

The new girl is the epitome of cute. Shy. Innocent. Blushes every time she looks at me. I know what she’s thinking. What she wants. And I know exactly how to give it to her. …But I won’t.

As my employee, she’s off-limits. No matter how much I want her, I’m not giving in. Unfortunately, I know all too well where that road goes. In fact, I went there just last week.

My ex-girlfriend was a bit of a drama queen. After our break-up, she went straight to the tabloids. Which sucked…but do you know what sucks more? The fact that she was my top author! Her steamy stories were going to launch my new hot lesbian romance line.
Now she’s with the competition, and my dreams of market domination are fizzling.

Oh hell no. This publishing line is my baby. There’s no way I’m going to lose. All I need is a new author.

Turns out new girl’s writing is just about perfect. In fact, there’s only one problem with her book. Her s*x scenes suck…because she’s never had it. All she needs is a good editor to tutor her…

F*ck. We all know where this is going.

Without a clue as to her destination, she hit the road with nothing on her mind but healing her broken heart strong enough to never fall in love again.

Maybe the silence of the wilderness will have the answer she needs to decide what to do about the baby she is carrying.

An immediate connection develops when these two broken women meet on the road that carries them away from the life they were living. But will it be enough to open their hearts to trust again? And if so, will they be strong enough to hold onto that connection when an unborn child seems to be pointing them to return back to a home where memories of trauma and a first love are still ever so present in each of their hearts?

Bishop’s Run: Book 3

by B.D. Gates

With their Happily-Ever-After firmly in place, Tess and Bishop are settling into married life in Tenley, Virginia. It’s a quiet little town–not quite off the beaten path, but enough that if you wanted trouble, you’d have to go looking for it.

Have you met Bishop?

Pop-up shops selling leather pocketbooks, purses, cases, and bags spark Bishop’s instincts to investigate, believing the goods to be counterfeit, and Tess has her hands full reining her in, reminding Bishop that her present life in the Witness Security program cuts her off from the life she left behind in Baltimore.

With a broken promise, keeping secrets, and another woman pursuing Bishop for sport, more than just the honeymoon could be over for the happy couple.

And erasing a lifetime creates big problems when Bishop’s memory holds the key.

The clock is ticking and the danger is closer than they know.

PROJECT LAUGHTER

I don’t know about you, but the world seems to be getting pretty (insert your favorite colorful word here) intense. While I like to stay informed, I also like to laugh to deal with stress. And, I need some chuckles these days.

So, I’m starting a theme on I Heart Lesfic for 2020. I’m calling it Project Laughter. At least once a week, hopefully more, I’ll post a guest blog from a lesfic author sharing an embarrassing moment in their lives.

Check out Erin Zak’s story and enter for a chance to win a copy of Beautiful Accidents. Click here to read Erin’s guest blog.
