contractsigned_cover

Blurb

Triggerman, Inc., Book 1

Three assassins and a baby?
How many assassins does it take to change a diaper?
Three assassins have met their match and it wears diapers.

Noel “Ice” Cavanaugh’s method is foolproof. Get in, do the job, get out, melt away without a trace. Chill out until his next mark is assigned. Neat. Tidy. No mistakes.

This time, though, something isn’t right. Two somethings. First a random attack that feels not-so-random. Then he discovers someone’s left a baby on his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. And the sexy neighbor who found the boy first has too many questions in her eyes to ignore.

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for “help” with his bundle of joy? By date’s end, she’s convinced NOel’s just as distant as he seems until a scorching goodnight kiss ends with sex against the nearest wall, the heat between them burning away all thoughts of careful.

Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit more time with Addy into his no-room-for-error schedule and keeping both of them safe from the danger he’s increasingly sure has followed him home.

Warning: Beware a killer with a heart of gold, a baby who needs constant changing, and unrequited love that’s actually quite requited.

He sighed. “I would have talked to you sooner but I’ve had my hands full. I’d like to go out again.”

She hugged Noel Jr.—as she liked to think of him—tighter. He grabbed her hair and cooed, no longer upset while she rocked him against her. “By go out, you mean…?”

To her delight, Noel flushed and shoved his hands in his pockets. He wore a dark green sweater and jeans that looked as if they’d been pressed. She had never, in the two years she’d known him, seen him in anything resembling slovenly attire.

“I mean you and I could go out to dinner again or see a movie. Maybe take a hike.”

“Oh.” She was disappointed and shouldn’t have been. But God, just thinking about how amazing he’d been woke her ovaries from their hibernation.

“I mean, sure, we could sex it up in a bed next time, but I thought you’d like to get to know me better first. You know, so that you feel better about being with such a cold, unemotional man,” he delivered in a remote voice.

“Ha ha.” At least, she thought he was joking.

The gleam in his dark brown eyes and slight quirk of his lips showed he was. “Or are you a fan of wall sex instead?”

She covered the baby’s ears. “Shh. He’s too little for this talk.”

Noel snorted. “Trust me, that kid’s no innocent. He’s shoved all sorts of things into his mouth all day. Including one of my favorite silk ties. He’s been pooping and crying all day long.”

For all Noel’s harsh words, he stroked the baby’s head with a tenderness that should have surprised her but didn’t. She noticed the calluses on his fingers, in particular on his middle and forefinger and thumb. From lifting weights, maybe?

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I’ve been a reader and fan of Marie Harte’s books for a long time now and I was delighted when the lady herself announced another new series was being released…

Contract Signed was a great start to the Triggerman, Inc. series!
3 badass assassins, an unexpected baby, a sexy neighbour, intrigue, mystery, action and secret & spies, along with a series of things that keep getting in the way of our main couple getting it together all lead to a really great, engaging story!

Noel Cavanaugh was nothing like Adeline Rose expected – not that she knew much about her sexy neighbour, even though she’s been lusting over him for the last couple of years.
Noel comes across as cold and uninterested whenever Addy has come into contact with him in the past… turns out there’s more to the man than meets the eye. He had been keeping tabs on his nosey little neighbour for a while and was more interested in her than she’s ever imagine! I really liked him. He was protective of Addy, as well as the baby (whether it’s his or not) and would do anything to keep her safe.

Addy was funny and likable. Outgoing and openly friendly, she was the complete opposite of the well named ‘Ice’, but they were great together!

Add in Jolene, who is Addy’s best friend, and Deacon and Hammer, who are 2 assosiates/friends of Noel, and you have some craziness and laugh out loud moments as well as a nice introduction to the second book in this series!

There was the expected elements of humour, heat and romance that I’ve come to expect (and look forward to) in Marie’s books. I loved this read and I can’t wait to find out what happens next with the sexy assassins….

I’ve giving Contract Signed 5 well deserved stars.

in the Cowboy Cocktail series by Mia Hopkins…


 

About COWBOY RESURRECTION

Marketing hotshot Monica Kaur has put her big-city life on hold to help bail out her brother’s failing business. Now she’s got three months to plan and promote a rodeo, the first her tiny hometown has ever seen.

To ensure the rodeo’s success, Monica enlists a local hero, a rancher’s son who’s made a name for himself on the bull-riding circuit. Problem? She can’t stop daydreaming about the cocky bastard—and all the things she longs to do to him out behind the chutes.

Professional bullfighter Dean MacKinnon is home helping his family while his father fights cancer. Haunted by bad memories, jaded by love, Dean finds escape in a no-strings-attached go-round with brainy, sexy Monica, whose close-knit Sikh-American family would sooner run him out of town than see her with a notorious rodeo Romeo.
In private, Monica and Dean play as hard as they work. But as the rodeo draws near, that clean break they promised each other is getting more and more hung up in the rigging.

Warning: Contains rope play, motel nooners, a blue-eyed charmer with a taste for kink, and a brown-eyed princess with a taste for cowboys.

Excerpt:

“So,” he whispered against her lips. “What do you want?”
“I don’t know.” Her voice was barely audible, a ghost of air carried away by the wind.
“I think you know.” He kissed her again, and before she knew what was happening, he’d pulled her down to the ground with him. The dry grass and soft blanket of flowers crinkled like hot paper beneath them. He sat down and she straddled him, her knees crushing petals that looked like orange fire in the desert.
Dean took off his hat, placed it on the ground, and traced a trail of hot kisses down the side of her neck. Pleasure ran a circuit through her body, firing her nerve endings as her lust rose to high tide.
She dug her hands through his dark hair. It was silky, long enough to curl. When he began to lay hot, open-mouthed kisses on her throat, she grabbed his hair in her fingers and tugged at it gently. A low moan rumbled in his chest.
His lips found hers again. They quickly established a rhythm of breath and tongues that pulled all consciousness from her brain. She was flying, far too high on Dean to realize she was riding him, rubbing herself against the hardening bulge in his jeans.
He broke their kiss and rested his forehead against hers. He let go of her waist and dragged his fingers through her hair, clasping it and gently pulling it back until her lips parted with a gasp.
“Tell me what you want.” His deep voice sent shivers up her spine.
She was silent, paralyzed with pleasure.
“Tell me what you want, Monica,” he said again. His firm tone made her insides clench. Already she could feel how wet she was, how ready.
“You need it. Same as I do.” He touched her face and skimmed his fingertips down her throat. “Don’t you?”
“I do.” She was still. “But no one can know about this.”
“I understand.”
“Dean, I’m serious. Not a soul. Promise me.”
He nodded. “I promise.”


See what people are saying about COWBOY RESURRECTION:

“Wow, wow, and wow…The love that blossoms between [the hero and heroine] is unrushed, genuine, true. *sigh* I loved this book from start to finish and highly recommend it, and not just for fans of western romance.”
Goodreads review, 5/5 stars

“The writing is excellent, the emotions leap off the page, and the sex is downright earthy…This is a feel-good romance with a strong, career-minded heroine, a swoon-worthy working class hero, a great setting and lots of lovingly detailed sex.”
Jill Sorenson, RITA-nominated author of romantic suspense


BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy 

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the books in the Cowboy Cocktailseries that I’ve read so far and Cowboy Resurrection was no exception.

Monica and Dean came from very different background but had to work together when he agreed to help her plan a rodeo in their small town.

They were attracted to each other from the get go but due to her overbearing, protective and honour conscious family they couldn’t be open about their fling. Monica’s family expected more of her than to settle with a cowboy regardless of how she felt about things.

They were hot and passionate together and it broke my heart a little when she had to bow to pressure from her family, return home to the city and leave her heart behind.
Having been hurt in the past by his ex, would Dean pull up his cowboy pants and fight for his girl or would he move on, get back to his old life and forget her?

A great cast of characters, catching up with Dean’s brothers and his folks was fun and let us find out more about them.

I can’t wait for more of this great series by Mia Hopkins


Check out the first book in The Cowboy Cocktail series, COWBOY VALENTINE!

Forget chocolate and flowers. This homegrown honey is all the sweetness he craves.

Small-town life is nothing but a waiting room for eighteen-year-old honor student Corazón Gomez. Work and school leave little time for love, but with a full-ride Ivy League scholarship and a one-way ticket out of the boondocks, who needs it?

The answer appears on Valentine’s Day when her old cowboy crush ambles into the ice cream parlor where she works, inviting her to go on a late-night ride in his truck. For the first time she wavers between staying on the straight and narrow, and going off-road with the handsome heartbreaker.

After four years working on ranches all over the country, Caleb MacKinnon is back on the family farm helping out his mom and brothers while his father fights cancer. The one bright spot: smart, funny, and wickedly sexy Cora.

From the start, they both know this blazing-hot love affair can’t last. But when autumn comes and Cora has to leave for the East Coast, Caleb must find a solution to keep himself—and his heart—from falling apart.

Warning: Contains hard, cherry-poppin’ sex in a pickup truck and a cowboy charmer who talks dirty in two languages.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ – Fevered Hearts by Em Petrova

 

 

Title: Fevered Hearts
Author: Em Petrova
Publisher: Samhain
 Release Date: March 31, 2015

 


 

Synopsis

When faced with a challenge, it’s best to pool your resources.

Liam Mattson used to play his wife’s body like a fine violin. Until a logging accident dampened his fine motor skills and rendered his legs—and the most important part of his below-the-waist playground—useless.

If only Liam would throw himself into therapy with the same vigor he used to throw her into bed, Ivy is sure he’d fully recover. But lately she’s felt adrift, while he’s stuck in self-pity and pre-occupation with a serious threat to his logging business.

When Ward Bose returns from the backwoods, Liam isn’t blind to the heated, guilty glances between his best friend and his wife. And he takes a step he never could have taken if his legs were working—ask Ward to service Ivy in bed.

The moment the three come together, Ward’s heartstrings are tied in knots, and Liam holds them in his fist. But secrets they’re each keeping could tear them all apart…unless they can find a way to share their burdens as easily as they share their love.

Product Warnings: Men who wield big saws know how to care of business—in bed and out.
