Book Spotlight: #sale A Spell in Provence by Marie Laval



Passion and mystery in the hills of Provence when an ancient spell weaves its dark magic.


After losing her job in England, Amy Carter uses her redundancy payment to start a new life in France, turning Bellefontaine, an overgrown Provençal farmhouse, into a successful hotel. Though she has big plans for her new home, none of them involves falling in love — least of all with Fabien Coste, the handsome but arrogant owner of the nearby château. 

As romance blossoms in the beautiful Provençal countryside, disturbing events at the farmhouse hint at a dark mystery — a destructive, centuries-old attachment between the ladies of Bellefontaine and the ducs de Coste. As Amy struggles to unravel the mystery, she begins to wonder if it may not just be her heart at risk, but her life too.

Excerpt

Shivering in the cold breeze despite her shawl, Amy joined the guests lining up to be greeted by Fabien, who in true lord of the manor style, stood tall and imposing at the top of the steps, with torches burning on either side of him.
            He might wear a black dining suit and a crisp white shirt instead of a suit of armour, but there was something untamed, fundamentally uncivilized and proprietary about the way he surveyed the crowd – as if he truly owned everything and everyone, like Frédéric had said, and Amy was seized by an irresistible, irrational and overwhelming urge to flee. She didn’t want to speak to Fabien Coste, didn’t want to put up with his arrogant ways. He could keep his fancy chateau, his contacts and glamorous guests, she didn’t need him. She would walk home. It wasn’t that far.
            She was about to step aside when he looked down and their gaze met. Shadows danced on his face. The torches hissed in the breeze, their flames shooting high in the air and reflecting in his green eyes, giving them a deep, dangerous glow. For the space of a heartbeat, the noise of conversations around her became distant and fuzzy, and all she could see was him.
            He walked down, took her hand and lifted it to his lips. Even though his mouth barely touched her skin, a flash of heat reverberated through her body.
            ‘Mademoiselle Carter – Amy, you’re here at last.’
            It was the first time he’d spoken her first name. He made it sound French, sensual and incredibly romantic. Aimée. Beloved.
            ‘Shall I escort you inside and introduce you to a few people?’
            Panic made her heart flutter and turned her brain to mush.
            ‘Well, it’s just that …’
            He arched a dark eyebrow, looked down, and smiled as if he knew exactly what she was feeling.
            ‘You’re here now. You might as well make the most of it.’

Book Spotlight: 40/20: A Stepbrother Romance by Darlene Jacobs



40/20 Rule in rugby: The ball must bounce within the field of play at least once before finding the touch line.

I was the touchline. 

My stepbrother, Jake, a rugby player, plays by all the rules... except when it comes to me. He saved my life... literally. I had planned to slip under the ocean's waves. But Jake was there to rescue me from myself.

At first I thought I hated Jake. He was the typical alpha male that gets whatever he wants when he wants it. The pride of our newly blended family; he's on the Dean's list, a star rugby player and the apple of both our parent's eyes. I've only known him for three months, but I had already formed a jealous, negative opinion.

However, my attitude would flipflop drastically about Jake the day he drove me up to his college campus to stay a few days, party, and watch rugby practice. The ride there was so hot and sexy, I couldn't possibly believe that experience could be topped.

Or could it? 

Unfortunately, Jake neglected to tell me that someone was waiting for him on campus... a barbie that had a hold on him. While Jake figures out what he really wants; I don't wait around. His rugby teammate, 'The Spence,' has his eye (and hands) all over me.

What will it be, Jake?

Excerpt

I go into the dorm's bathroom and shut the door. But the door doesn't stay closed and slowly inches open just a tiny bit.  I try to get it to close and stay closed. Same issue. So I leave it be.

I remove my clothing and stand in front of the medicine cabinet. I catch Anthony, with his back facing the bathroom, using a mirror to catch a glimpse of my body through the crack in the door.

Yes, most would consider him a creep. But I feel kind of sorry for the guy.  He's relegated to getting his thrills cheaply. And it wasn't so long ago... yesterday, actually, that I was considered the same lonely loser. 

I know the type because I am the type.

Almost, dying has drastically changed me. I'm freer, less concerned about the mundane. 


So I go through the medicine cabinet, just to be nosy... and also to give Anthony a few more moments.
