Meet the Author

Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in one-room school house in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

Handle with Care by Helena Hunting

NOTE: This is an unedited excerpt and is subject to change.

I’m startled out of my thoughts when my brother jumps up and shouts a
bunch of profane nonsense, hands flailing like he’s trying to swim on land, or
approximate the chicken dance while on an LSD trip.
“You can’t do this! It’s absolute bullshit!” Armstrong yells.
I look around the table, trying to piece together what I missed.
“I’m sorry, Armstrong. I know this is a shock, but we feel it’s in the company’s
best interest to put Lincoln at the helm during this transitional stage,” G-mom says
firmly.
At the helm? I look to G-mom who’s busy not looking at me.
Armstrong jabs at finger at himself. “But I’m the one who’s put in all the time
here! I deserve to run the company! Lincoln doesn’t know the first thing about
Moorehead. All he knows how to do is dig wells and forage for food in the
wilderness. How are those valuable assets here?” He turns his attention to our
mother. “Did you know about this? How can you let this happen? Look at him. How
can that be the face of our company? He looks like he crawled out of a gutter and
mugged a twenty-year-old college kid on a bender. How is this better for our bottom
line?”
My mother clasps her hands in front of her. “I’m sorry, Armstrong, but this
decision wasn’t mine to make. I know this is hard for you, but your grandmother
and fath—”

Armstrong stomps his foot, exactly as a toddler would. “The company is
mine! Lincoln can’t have it!”
I raise a hand, half to quiet my brother and also to find out what the freaking
deal is. “Whoa, let’s back this bus up. Can someone explain what’s going on?”
“You’ve been appointed as the CEO of Moorehead Media, according to the
will,” Christophe—no R, because that would make it far too pedestrian a name—my
father’s lawyer says.
I’m working on trying to remain calm as I address my grandmother. “You
didn’t say anything about me being CEO. You said you needed my help.”
“Running the company, yes,” she says through a practiced, stiff smile.
It’s her warning face, but seriously, when she said she needed my help for a
few months I figured it meant I’d be keeping Armstrong in line while she sorted out
who was going to take over the company, which I realize now was a stupid
assumption.
“I didn’t think that meant CEO. How am I going to run a company with this
dickhead on staff?” I motion to my brother.
“The name calling is unnecessary,” G-mom replies.
“Lincoln’s not even part of this family! He hasn’t attended one event in the
past five years except for Dad’s funeral. He didn’t bother coming to my wedding and
now he’s going to run the company? How is that fair?”
I snort. “Your wedding was an expensive joke.”
He crosses his arms over his chest. “I was set up. Amalie had cold feet and
made me out to look like the bad guy.”

The woman beside him shoots him a disgusted look.
Armstrong clears his throat and tugs at his collar. “My wedding is not the real issue. The point is that you’ve never involved yourself in any part of this family and now you think you can come in and take over. I will not stand by and let this happen!” He keeps jabbing his finger at me as if he’s engaged in a finger sword fight.
I lean back in my chair and lace my fingers behind my neck. Armstrong has always been reactive. And self-absorbed. For a while, it seemed like he finally had it together—back when he was engaged. But ever since that fiasco of a wedding he seems to have come completely unglued. Again. But worse this time. “Someone needs a timeout.”

New Year and so many astounding tales

It’s only the fourth of January and already read some of the most amazing books have been released or soon to be released by some of the best authors.

Let’s start with Jessica Hawkins new release from December 28th, Right Where I Want You is an enemy to lovers, forbidden office romance giving us the light-hearted banter, some of the most laugh out loud scenes, (elevator) and the hottest love story since Lake and Manning. You are going to fall in love with Sebastian & Georgina, their story, their friends, and the dogs!

Next up is A Place Without You by Jewel E. Ann published on January 1th a little earlier than expected which is always welcomed. The Law of Henna and Bodhi: When love breaks, fall inward, fall together, and fall hard. Then let time pick up the pieces. Everything feels temporary when you’ve experienced tragedy—until Henna Lane meets Bodhi at a music festival. Young and spontaneous, they have a lust for seizing the moment, falling hard and fast. When Bodhi is forced to leave without a goodbye, Henna thinks she’ll never get over him. But then she meets Mr. Malone, her sexy, new guidance counselor. They are reckless. They are forbidden. When their secret is discovered, Henna has to choose between finishing school—banned from seeing Mr. Malone—or dropping out to follow her nomad dreams. Henna chooses her dreams. Over time, she learns that life is not a destination or a journey, some things are more than temporary, and the forbidden can never be ignored. But if she returns for him, will he still be hers? A Place Without You is an emotional story of young love, shattered dreams, and impossible decisions.
Wow, this was not was I was expecting and it’s just so much more. There is no other way to explain this story, it’s more than love at first sight, it’s more than forbidden love, it hits every emotional button and then some, “well it’s like a white T-shirt with french fries and ketchup. It’s messy but worth the risk”. I hope you add this to your TBR pile.

On January 8th two long awaited books will be released.

Promises by Aleatha Romig is the final book of the Web of Sins trilogy. As the title implies Aleatha gives us all the answers we were waiting for from Secrets and Lies and she delivers like no other Author can. She can spin the yarn with the best of the best! So, if you haven’t read Secrets or Lies, (book 1 & 2) in this trilogy now is the time to catch up.

Untied by Lydia Michaels is the second book in the Mastermind series, it’s
Elliot’s story.

Elliot Garnet has never been popular. His aptitude and single-minded focus on success has earned him a fortune but has led to a solitary existence and a desire to keep his private life private. Romance holds little temptation, but there’s one woman who never fails to unravel his composure. Except, she’s so far out of his league they only ever speak in his fantasies, until fortune—or fate—causes their paths to cross again. 

Revolving door of attractive men entering and exiting Nadia’s life, she’s yet to find Mr. Right. And after a disastrous date with yet another Mr. Wrong, she’s doubtful she’ll ever find true love, until an unexpected hero comes to her rescue. Elliot’s reserved, quiet nature lures her in, but the moment she gets too close he pulls back, tempting her all the more. 

She’s an impulsive romantic and he’s a methodical realist. Their volatile chemistry ties him in knots, and despite his efforts to hide his painful past, Nadia slowly unravels his secrets and Elliot becomes unhinged, uncensored … untied.

Finally, we have The Kiss Thief by LJ Shen which releases on January 9th.

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.  

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

The Kiss Thief is an original story of love, life, and possibilities. The Kiss Theif stole more than just a kiss, he took her dreams, her predestine life with another man, and her innocence. However, Francesca is a powerful sheep that brings the Wolfe down to his knees in this unlikely twisted fairytale.

Right Where I Want You

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018
BLURB
There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office.

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller.

But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

EXCERPT 

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
“Hamptons?”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”

Misadventures with a Professor by Sierra Simone

Zandy Lynch never planned on going to grad school a virgin. So when her professor father finds her a job abroad as a research assistant the summer before she starts her master’s program, she sees her chance. She’s got one night in London to lose her V-card to a Mr. Darcy lookalike before she has to join some ancient professor in the country.
Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he’s trying to work, but he owes her father the favor, and besides, his office is an untidy mess of uncatalogued research. He needs the help. Still, he decides to take the edge off his frustration while visiting a colleague in London, and winds up having the sexiest, sweetest night of his life with a stranger, who vanishes in the morning without a trace…

To Zandy’s shock when she arrives at Professor Graeme’s house a day later, the door isn’t opened by a fussy old scholar, but by the wild, passionate man she met in London. Cold and reserved by day, Oliver is ferociously greedy with her at night, and it’s not long before Zandy finds herself falling for both versions of him—the aloof professor and the generous, rough lover. The trouble is that summer only lasts so long, and Zandy already has a plane ticket waiting to take her home…

Quick, Fun, dirty novella written by the connoisseur of kink. One night stands are never better than one written by the queen of carnal fornication Sierra Simone.  Although is one is a novella it’s huge on the things that matter the most.
