Free At Last Complete Box Set by Annie Stone

Mackenzie Hall loves Carter Tillmann. Carter loves Mac. When she meets Hunter, she isn’t so sure anymore, who owns her heart. Her head wants stability and safety, but her heart might not be on board with that.

Hunter can’t live with the uncertainty and follows his own dreams, but those aren’t only life-changing for him. When he leaves, Mackenzie understands that her heart is stronger than her head. But now it’s too late, Hunter is gone. Will they find each other again?

This box set includes
1.a fighting chance
2.a losing battle
3.a saving grace

The three of us avoid each other until Carter gets back. The boys go hang out with their friends or whatever—I don’t really know, because I work. And work. I’ve always been a bit of a workaholic since I can’t leave if there’s someone there who needs help. But these days, work’s turning into an obsession.
“Go home, Mac,” Shane says the day before Carter’s scheduled to come home.
I look at my watch. It’s almost eleven. “Oh, yeah. I lost track of time.” Slowly, I sort through the documents in front of me.
“What’s up?” Shane asks gently.
“What do you mean?” It’s always good to answer a question with another question, right? Sign of a quick wit, surely.
He smiles faintly and sits on the other side of my desk. Interlocking his fingers behind his head, he stretches out his legs. He looks laid-back, like he’s really comfortable. Here in my office. Here with me.
“Kid, I remember the day you walked in here for the first time. You were this timid little thing, but really angry! Incredibly angry. You stomped around here in your Chucks, not wanting anyone to tell you what to do.” He grins like he’s reveling in the memory. “You thought you started to heal when you found us. But you had this fire in you. You’ve always had it. Flames were shooting up ten feet in the air above your head. All we did was show you how to harness your power. You did all the rest yourself. Then and now.”
I sit back in my chair and stare at him.
“It was fun to watch you turn from an angry firecracker into the woman you are today. At least, the woman you were until about a week ago. Because the Mac I see today has lost her luster. It’s like you’re hiding it on purpose, like you’re standing in the shade because you’re afraid to step out into the sun.”
“I didn’t know you were such a poet, Shane,” I joke, because I don’t know what else to say. Obviously, he’s right.
He just grins. “Mock me all you want, kid. We both know something happened. You don’t have to tell me what it is. You don’t even have to acknowledge it yourself. But please make sure all your hard work was worth it.” He gets up and comes to my side of the desk to kiss me on the head. “Night, kiddo.”
I watch him go.
He’s right. I can’t let them control me like this. Not now, not ever again. I take a deep breath and hope my old strength, my old fire, will miraculously start burning again.
But when I get home, I’m happy the house is quiet. Because I’m still such a coward.

I'm a contemporary romance writer, who likes her men tattooed, her women independent and her coffee strong.

My stories are all about love, but some are of the romantic kind, some of the sad kind and others of the very steamy kind. So if you can stand drama, foul language and sex, you came to the right place.

Love, Annie

Adeline Blue - Eidolon

What if the rules weren’t what we thought they were? What if the unimaginable knocked on your door? If the future was at the expense of the present and the past never really ended, could you learn the new rules before everything you love…is gone?

Ellie is the girl next door, just out of college, in her first apartment and pursuing a career as a professional dancer. Her life is simple and the town she lives in, idyllic. But Ellie’s world is turned upside-down when a woman appears to her in a cemetery and informs her that she is the only one who can save her — not from dying, but from ceasing to have ever existed at all! 

Ellie quickly finds out that her role is not optional. Her mind is haunted by the woman’s words, the poem on the headstone and the life of the woman to which it alludes— a prominent Victorian woman whose life holds a terrifying secret and the key to Ellie’s success. Her best friend, Scotlyn, is supportive and fully on board to help. Tyler, Scotlyn’s older brother, who has always been very protective of Ellie, steps up, as well. Trent, who is Scotlyn’s boyfriend, has knowledge that will help them find their way through the labyrinth that continually unfolds before them. Each step takes them closer to understanding but deeper into a world that none of them want to be in— one which threatens everything that matters to each of them. When they discover who is behind the disastrous plot and that it is being exacted by literally bending the laws of the universe, success seems impossible. If they fail, the mystery woman will cease to have existed, an entire future will be irrevocably altered, and Ellie’s life will be destroyed.

Eidolon takes you through a journey of mind and emotion, making stops in future probabilities and past existences, considering world-altering technology and winding back around to friendship, love and the power that each of us hold in this universe. The romance is entrancing in its mix of fairytale-like idealism and cold-hard realism. The paranormal is intriguing in its detail and the premise is addictive and all-consuming in its depth and possibility. A stunningly brilliant work of imagination: creativity is unsurpassed, the ideas are mind-opening and the suspense is riveting. Soul-wrenching and heart-warming, this beautiful masterpiece questions the very fabric of the universe that we have come to know through very real characters you will fall in love with! 

When the past won’t let go and the future is fading, what wouldn’t you do in your present?

ADELINE BLUE discovered her talent for writing when she was about 10 years old, though for many years it was poetry and short stories and usually just an outlet for dealing with difficult things. Her greatest proclivity has always been for chasing shiny objects, which has led her though a variety of interests: juggling and magic, gymnastics, video production, acting, dance, sports, drawing, as well as an extensive list of projects and ventures…and all with very little coffee! But writing a book was always something she knew she would do one day. 

Adeline loves a fairy-tale romance and that happily-ever-after, but she also likes to explore the extremes and subtleties of human emotion through her characters. She is intrigued by sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal and quantum physics. Forever imagining stories and creating worlds in her mind, she finally found a way to sit still long enough to pen The Entanglement Series: Eidolon, Twice Be and Entangled.

A life-long resident of New Jersey, Adeline is working on her next books, when she isn’t seeking out ice cream or falling down the rabbit hole of her imagination.

Release Day Blitz - Baby Maker (A Real Man #17) by Jenika Snow 100%


There was only one woman I wanted, and I’d been secretly lusting after her for years.
My sister’s friend.

That first time I saw Calissa was like a right hook to the face, taking me down until there was nothing left. She was my world.

She’s too young for me, too innocent, but that won’t stop me from making her mine. There’s no stopping it, no controlling this possessive, primal need to claim her.

I’d have Calissa no matter what, as my woman, my wife ... with my baby inside of her.


It was a forbidden desire to want your best friend’s older brother, but it was my reality. Tex was big and strong and a successful owner of a security company. He was definitely all man.

I’d thought he’d never see me as anything more than his sister’s friend. How wrong I was.

No more longing gazes or fantasies we were together.
He knew what he wanted out of life and apparently that was me ... pregnant with his child.

Warning: This hero really knows what he wants and that's the heroine and getting her knocked up! But no worries, this story is still sweet--even if it is filthy--and you still get that Happily Ever After.

She’s real. This is fucking real.
“Are we really doing this?” she asked softly. “Is this really happening?”
Oh. Fuck. Yeah.
“It should have happened a while ago, Calissa. I should have made you mine when I first realized that’s what I wanted.” I took a step closer. “It was at the eighteenth birthday party. You’d been standing there in a white sundress, your hair piled high on your head, those little pearl earrings catching my eye.” I looked into her eyes. “You remember that night?”
She nodded slowly.
“I wanted you right then and there. I wanted to take you to an empty room, pull your dress up over your ass, and slide my cock deep into that tight little pussy of yours.” I reached out and touched her cheek, her skin warm, smooth. “I wanted to claim that tight little cunt of yours, and the way you looked at me, I know you wanted that, too, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” she said breathlessly.
I moved closer until I could reach out and touch her. I had my hand on her cheek and stroked my thumb along her jawline. I was glad Megs caught us. I was glad she gave her blessing, so to speak. That would have been a hurdle we had to cross later on, but now it was done, sealed. I’d left Megs’ with Calissa in hand, telling her I wanted us to talk, to really understand what was going on. If sex happened tonight than it was meant to, but if not … well I was a fucking patient man. Especially when it came to Calissa.
“How does this feel?” she asked, her voice a whisper.
“It feels pretty fucking incredible. It feels perfect.”
I didn’t stop touching her jawline. I wanted to touch more of her … all of her. She slipped her tongue out and ran it along the swell of her bottom lip. And I lost all semblance of the self-control I’d been holding onto. I lowered my head, moved slightly toward her, and knew if I allowed myself to kiss her, I wouldn’t be able to stop.

Jenika Snow, a USA Today bestselling author, lives in the northeast with her husband and their two daughters. She prefers gloomy days, eats the topping off of her pizza first, and prefers to wear socks year round.

Mara Justine Should Have Been The Next American Idol

I was going to let this go, but since I can't stop thinking about it, I decided to blog.  Mara Justine had the most talent of any contestant I saw on American Idol, and when they cut her it shocked me to the core.  I was rooting for this little superstar to make it and to be honest, it was the only reason I watched the show.  I won't be watching again, but I WILL be keeping any eye out for Mary Justine's first CD because I think she is already a superstar.  I can only think that Idol needs to get out of the talent showcase business because they obviously have no idea what talent is.

In case you haven't figure it out, I'm ANGRY.  As in, I can't stop thinking how Perry, Richie, and Bryan should be hanging their heads in shame after not giving this girl their vote back in.  Maybe it was professional jealousy because Mara could outsing and outperform any of them.  America being idiotic is one thing, but people in the music industry that can't see that they had the brightest star of all the contestants right in front of them and still cut her?  That's insanity.

I hope a great record label picks her up and maybe she'll be more gracious than I am because I can no longer watch American Idol after this stupidity.  My kids will be happy to not have me blasting the television to hear these performers again, so there is a positive in there.  If you haven't had the honor of hearing this little angel sing, make the time.  She is the star of 2018 and someone you'll be hearing from.

No, I don't personally know Mara, and to be honest, it's probably a good thing I don't because I'd be even angrier about the lack of respect (and common sense) American Idol showed by voting her off.  As a matter of fact, I'm going to be her biggest cheerleader as she blooms into the superstar she deserves to be.  That's my rant, and sorry it's not about romance, but I had to get that off my chest before my head exploded.  American Idol?  You suck.  Rant over!

Our attraction was poison and pleasure.

They say the devil recognizes his own, but I never saw Avery coming.

I didn’t stand a chance.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby - Julia Kent

Title: Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby
Series: Shopping for a Billionaire #13
Author: Julia Kent
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 24, 2018


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.


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.


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.

“Just because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a well-oiled machine, babies included.”

Andrew snorts. “You really believe that.”

“A baby is like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep them in their swim lanes.”

I’m getting major raised eyebrows here.

“Optimization protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”

“You sound like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”

“This baby will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon, how could we go wrong?” Mother. Calling Shannon a mother does something to my gut. A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.
