Excerpt/Teaser:

After checking into the hotel, I decided to go all out for this weekend. My friends will be in tomorrow for the wedding. Tonight, I have the penthouse suite all to myself. Well, not myself. I walk toward Lennox, he was waiting in the bar area. That rugged smirk appears across his face. I approach him, “I’m on the very top floor. 1305. Let’s go.”
I grab his hand and lead him to the elevator. When we get into the elevator, I pounce on him causing him to startle back. Our lips interlock. Our tongues start dancing. My hand reaches down to his belt buckle, I start to fiddle with it. He pulls away. My teeth clench down on his bottom lip. “Fuck, woman. Anxious much?” he groans, as I release his lip. 
I purr, “You’re all my tonight. So be ready?”
“Well, okay then,” he smirks. 
The elevator door opens up and we walk down the long, dim-light hallaway. It was like a scene from a music video. While holding his hand, I lead him down the orangish-red carpet to my room at the end. It’s been too damn long since I have been with a man. Jonathon was my last. After the divorce, my focus with my children and career. Tonight is going to be different. My focus is getting fucked while fucking his brain out. All this built up tension is about to unleash on this poor pup. Jonathon might have been the last man I fucked but that doesn’t mean I’m not shy when exploring more. I’m going to make Lennox my bitch tonight. I love that he is on board. Men, they truly think with their second head. 
We make it to the door. While I fiddle with my phone to get the room barcode to open the door, he wraps his strong arm around me and squeezes me, bringing me close to his body. His breath hits my neck causing my body to shiver. Then hello lips, he nibbles my neck. Goodness, I need the code asap. Finally, the barcode appears in my wallet and I open the door. Both of us dragging our luggage, we stumble into the suite. He releases me from his hold. I turn around, pushing my luggage to the floor. He stands just a few feet from the doorway. I demand, “Close the door. But first put up the sign that says ‘Do Not Disturb’.”

SYNOPSIS

A Steamy Curvy Younger Woman Instalove Romance

Megan
The speed dating event at the pub has been a complete disaster right from the start. Five minutes of meaningless conversation; that isn’t the recipe for romance. I’m ready to give up all hope, when instead of me finding love, trouble finds me.

The moment Dean comes to my rescue, a switch flips in me. Perhaps tonight isn’t a complete waste after all? He’s the strong, silent type, and I’m unable to read him at all. but I’m determined to break through his walls and find out if he feels the same.

Dean
All night, I’ve kept an eye on her. How could I not, when she’s the most beautiful woman in the room? Inevitably, her luscious curves turn other heads as well, and before long, a fight erupts. It feels so good to intervene; to hold her in my arms after and see the gratitude in her eyes.

But she doesn’t know who I am. She doesn’t know what I’ve done. It would be better for everyone involved if I back away now. Because the more time I spend with her, the closer I come to forgetting why I can’t give her the sort of love she deserves.

Note: this self-contained beauty and the beast themed read may end up melting not just your Kindle, but your heart as well! If you love steamy body positive romance stories featuring protective older men and a curvy younger women, this third installment in L. Moone’s Coffee Shop Girls series is going to tick all your boxes! Every book follows a different couple from the moment lightning first strikes all the way to their happily ever after. They can be read in any order, but for maximum enjoyment I suggest you start with Book 1, Fireworks.

ABOUT L. MOONE

Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.

Release Blitz/ ARC Review: Waiting For My Queen by Georgia Cates

Title: Waiting For My Queen
A Dark Mafia Romance
Author: Georgia Cates
Genre: Adult Dark Romance
Release Date: March 3, 2020
Blurb
Emilia—

All I’ve
ever wanted was to marry for love.

But girls
like me don’t have that luxury.

We are used
as pawns in a game we can’t control.

The game?
It’s called Mafia.

I was
foolish enough to try to change the rules… and I lost.

Luca—

She was
promised to me years ago.

And he
dared to take her from me.

Dared to
touch what was mine.

I put an
end to that.

I hope he’s
enjoying the view from his dirt room.

Emilia—

My
beloved’s killer placed a ruby ring on my finger and called me his queen.

But that
red gem symbolizes something different for me.

It
represents the blood shed by those I love most.

Hell was
empty the day we wed.

Because the
devil was standing before me and said “I do.”

Luca—

I saw her
as a possession.

A shiny toy
I didn’t want other boys to play with.

But she’s
so much more.

Beautiful
and brave and strong and broken all at once.

She tastes
like everything I’ve ever wanted.

Emilia—

Hidden and
patient.

I wait for
the perfect time to seek my revenge.

But slowly,
I feel him possessing me.

His heart
is full of darkness… and I still want every inch of him.

Hard as I
try, I can’t escape loving this beautiful monster.

Luca—

I’m waiting
patiently because I already know that she’s mine.

Mine in a
way that no one will ever understand.

Even if she
hasn’t yet realized it.

For love,
I’d do
anything.

For her,
I’d do
everything.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Heed the warning about Luca! I was pissed at him for a while. He somewhat grows on you so don’t worry! I absolutely loved Emilia! She just wanted to marry for love and not be in the middle of mafia life. She does what she must to survive but falls for the enemy along the way. This was a good book.

Excerpt
I focus my attention on the girl sitting to Sofia’s left. The more
beautiful one. The older-looking one. The more frightened-looking one with
tears pooling in her lower lids.

Dark brown hair cascading over her shoulders and down her arms, the ends
nuzzling against her bare skin like a frightened child clinging to its mother.
Almond-shaped deep-caramel eyes surrounded by lush dark lashes. A few scattered
freckles across the bridge of her perfectly shaped nose. Plump, glossy coral
lips.

In my wildest dreams, my betrothed didn’t grow up to be this beautiful.
And it annoys the hell out of me because I don’t want to be attracted to her.

I want to make her suffer.

Sofia Bellini grips the hand of the girl in question. “Please, Marco.
Swear to me on your honor that my daughter will be safe with you.”

My father chuckles. “Emilia is going to give us babies, heirs to the
Rossini empire. There is no safer place for her than with our family. You know
that.”

Sofia and the girl beside her, my Emilia, embrace one another and sob.
Her grandmother and sisters cluster around her doing the same. It’s pathetic. I
would have expected less of a display from Bellinis. Certainly not this
spectacle.

My betrothed has weaknesses. Those will need to be eliminated before she
influences our sons with that nonsense.

“That’s more than enough of that,” I tell them.

She lifts her chin and her eyes meet mine for the first time. Inside
those deep-caramel orbs, I see something I like very much: rage. There during
one heartbeat and gone the next, it was only a fleeting flash. But I saw it and
I don’t mistake it for what it is.

This girl is going to be so much fun to break.

“Come, Emilia. I’m ready to take you home.”

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, there was a brain. This brain enjoyed the color purple, cuddling animals, soft blankets, nap time, and drinking coffee. The brain lived in a cave, on an island, and spent all of its time reading books and avoiding people.
Then one day, the brain decided it wanted to write a book.
Lightning struck and a million ideas came to life inside of the brain. So many ideas, so many voices, the brain actually exploded, split in two pieces, never to be meshed into one again.
Several lifetimes later, Allana Kephart and Lissa Lynn Thomas are the owners of each half of the broken brain. Together, they are A.L. Shea.
