Destiny of a Gargoyle by Chris Redding @chrisredding #MFRWAuthor

The Bad Boy

The bad boy holds a special place in my heart. I married the antithesis of a bad boy, but for some reason they hold some appeal. Maybe because I can watch them and be friends with them without worrying about succumbing to their charms. Not that I think I ever really succumbed to anyone’s charms. I don’t trust anyone that much and you come on strong I back off.

And bad boys are fun. Admit it. You know it. I like to be friends with them because they are so much fun.

What are some of the traits of a bad boy?

He’s fun as I said before. He’s confident. He’s good in bed. (Or at least he thinks he is.) He thrives on being bad and he knows how to get you to do what he wants. He has studied women for years and knows every type and how to get past their defenses. Think about your hero. Wouldn’t he be fun to write this way? Wouldn’t it be fun to live vicariously through a guy like this? (What? You don’t sometimes imbue your characters with traits you’d like to have?)

Hollywood bad boys to keep in mind: Colin Farrell (Oh that accent) George Clooney (Could anyone else take Cary Grant’s place?), Cary Grant (Swoon). Even someone like John Mayer can be a bad boy. Think sensitive guitar player. You won’t see that one coming.

So bad boys come in all shapes and sizes. He doesn’t need to be an ex-Special Forces guy. He can be that college professor or the accountant who does your taxes.

My hero in my latest release, Destiny of a Gargoyle, is not a bad boy. His younger brother in a later book is, but that is a post for that release.

BLURB

Donal Foley was born in a time when magic ruled the Earth.

Gargoyles protected fairies from goblins. His family was a group of elite gargoyles who were assigned to protect a specific fairy. His father’s dereliction of that duty cursed his sons to become stone and wait.

Now reawakened in the twenty first century where no one believes in magic how is he going to convince his fairy that she is one and that she is in danger from a goblin?

He must do that without falling in love with her.

Out Now—Shopping for A Billionaire’s Baby (Book 13 in the Shopping series) by Julia Kent @jkentauthor #MFRWAuthor

Release date: April 24, 2018

Genre: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance

Description:

You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.

We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.

And by we I mean me.

Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than ready.

But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.

And by little, I mean stupid.

That’s right.

We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.

We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.

Harder.

McCormick men don’t just have babies.

They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.

I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s baby.

Wrong.

Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.

But it’s nothing — nothing — compared to the actual birth.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby is the newest book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series and is a 400+ page full-length novel.

Excerpt:

“This conception stuff has you thinking. Philosophically, I mean,” Andrew notes, suddenly paying close attention to me.

“Of course. It’s powerful.”

“How? It’s just sex.”

I snort. “I thought so, too. Until I had sex where I tried to get her pregnant on purpose.”

Vince, Gerald, and Andrew all take a step closer to me.

“Bareback,” Vince whispers, like the word itself is holy.

Welcome to the world of horse racing! For the next few weeks we’ll be featuring excerpts from Detour Ahead, Book Four in our Rider’s Up Series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone, and all four books are always available FREE at KU.

Danger, suspense, stunning race horses,
courageous heroines, and the
complicated men who love them!

We’re still careening down the twisty detour with Traci Steele, from Detour Ahead. Will the sunshine bring her some relief?

EXCERPT

Brilliant sunshine suddenly broke through the clouds. “Yes,” she cried—how quickly things changed here! On a rare straightaway, she scrunched her shoulders forward and rotated her head, trying to ease tension and strain in her neck muscles.

She glanced quickly up the hillside and saw countless boulders dotting the landscape, making it look like nature’s private graveyard.

Her spirits sagged. It was no use. Even here she was never far from that gaping hole. Her father’s gravestone was already up—it had been there beside her mother’s, waiting to receive him since before she could remember. That had always bothered her. She remembered the first time she’d been old enough to read the words, her tiny hand held securely in his. She’d looked from his name on the stone, up into his face, and back at the stone again. Had he known, even then, he would never remarry?

BLURB

Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R&R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.

Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.

The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?
