ABOUT JAX

Seven is an enigma. A motorcycle club princess. The daughter of a notorious gangster. The best friend of the deputy mayor. A coffee shop owner. The single mom of two young, adopted children. She’s colorful, in every way possible—from her attitude to her piercings and bright pink hair—and she’s a woman on a mission with the power to help broker a clean break between a powerful motorcycle club and a South American drug cartel. But not all players are ready for the game to change, including the ones she can’t see like the CIA.
Jax Michaelson has a bad attitude and a good shot. The former Navy SEAL has been on Titan’s problem list for running his mouth since the day he showed up for work, but he does a hell of a job, and they’d never let him go. Call him cocky, that’s fine, because then you’d have to admit he’s the best at anything and everything—except diplomacy.
When Titan is forced into the seedy drug world filled with cartel glitz and Harley-riding MCs, Seven and her family become an unexpected bargaining chip right after she and Jax find a way to stand each other—in bed.
Will friends become lovers? Or are they too far gone to be opposites that attract? Is Jax nothing but a bad boy who leaves her hoping for a military hero when the burden of living as Mayhem royalty backfires and her children disappear.
 
 
JAX is a standalone romantic suspense novel by New York Times bestselling author Cristin Harber. It features characters from the Titan, Delta, and Only series, but readers do not have to have read those books to enjoy this one. There's a guaranteed happily ever after and no cliffhanger! Enjoy!

Excerpt:   
Jax opened the door, and it jangled with old country-store bells. Inside, the coffee shop was filled with lively decorations and signs, mismatched chairs, and tables combined with clashing coffee cups, glasses, and absurd plates and bowls, partnering with seamless effort. He liked it.
Where was Seven sitting? He scanned the tables, and the Sunday crowd fit no set rule. A young couple with a baby sat in their Sunday best next to a guy who Jax was sure was a Mayhem gang member and his old lady. Tables were filled with every spectrum in between, but Jax didn’t see Seven.
"Hey, you.”
Jax pivoted, surprised to see her behind the counter. “I didn't expect you so fast."
He shoved his hands in his pockets. "You're working?"
Truth was, he had no idea what Seven did for a living. Why hadn't he asked that before? All he knew of her were smiles and attitude, and that had been enough for him. Maybe not enough for her, and that was why he’d gone home alone. But he would've pegged her as… well, hell.
If he'd never spoken to her before and just saw her across the room, Jax would have wagered that Seven would make a terrific art teacher. But knowing the full power of her sass and spark, he could see her as a litigator. Though she would have been fresh out of law school, and he wondered how many law firms in Iowa would hire a magenta-haired, obviously pierced new attorney. But seeing as her best friend was the deputy mayor and her affiliation with Mayhem would likely bring in many clients, maybe she would have been a hot commodity.
He was positive law school hadn't been her calling, especially as she slung a hand towel off her shoulder, mopped the counter, then meticulously folded the towel, avoiding eye contact. "The coffee and crumpets aren’t going to make themselves."
Had he embarrassed her by questioning where she worked? Damn it. “This place reminds me of you.” In addition to the décor, the coffee house smelled like sugar and caffeine. Both were intoxicating like her—vibrant and exciting. He inspected the pastries and muffins behind the glass then turned back to her at the counter. Even the cash register was colorful.
"How do you like your coffee?” She finally met his gaze when she put her hands over the hand towel, pressing it to the counter, and, maybe nervously, awaited his walk back. "It's on the house."
Coffee normally would sound great, but the flare of the hangover he would never admit to made him hesitate. "How about…" What sounded good when he would rather be asleep? Jax ran a hand over his chin, thinking something cold and with sugar would help the small headache and lack of sleep.
"Or not," she said, studying him. "What's wrong with you?"
"Nothing." That he planned on sharing, that is.
"Oh, you feel like crap, don't you?" She turned from the counter toward a blender. "I have a hangover cure."
Jax pulled his poker face on. “I didn't say I have a hangover."
"Oh, you do, Jaxxy, my dear." Playfully, she spun. "I have a killer smoothie that'll cure what ails you, whatever that is.” Seven paused, casting a quick glance over her shoulder. "But you have to trust me. The color of it alone will be enough to trigger your gag reflex."
"No, thanks."
Seven tossed an amused look over her shoulder, challenging him to say no again, but she did seem to pick up on his thanks. "You're most welcome. 'Cause I'm still making it."
Surrendering, he half-grinned. "On one condition."
"Sure." But that didn’t slow her down any as she scooped powders and poured liquids into the blender. "And what's that?"
"Never say Jaxxy again." He waggled his brows. "Deal?"
The corners of her eyes crinkled. "Deal, so long as you drink the whole thing."
He shook his head, eyeballing the green goopy mess in the blender. “Really. I’m good.”
"This is for me, Jaxxy. I don't want to hear you bitch and moan while I have to talk to you."
The corners of his lips quirked, denying his ability to negotiate. "Sounds selfish, princess."
"You bet your ass, when I have to be." She played with her tongue stud for a second, turned back around, and flipped on the blender. "Since you don't have a hangover, I'll just put this baby on high." She turned the blender on to a louder mode. "Did you say something, Jaxxy? I can't hear you."
Standing with an empty cup in her hand and a blender on high, Seven waited casually. He forced nonchalance as the blender ran out of things to crush and simply whirled and whined. Jax's head throbbed. Really, the girl knew how to torque the hell out of him. Standing there, hand on one hip, glass in the other, torturing him, she was hot as hell. Pin-up girl material. Pouty lips and a come-at-me attitude.
"I'll drink the whole thing for you, babe."

Today we have the blog tour for

Christi Barth’s Bad For You!

I am so excited to share this new romance with you! Check it out and grab your copy today!

 

 

Title: Bad For You

Author: Christi Barth

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 3rd

Bad For Her Synopsis:

USA Today bestselling author Christi Barth launches a sexy new series about three bad-boy brothers in Witness Protection who are about to learn that going good is harder than they thought… Doctor Mollie Vickers loves the tight-knit community of her tiny Oregon town. But she’s not a fan of the limited dating options. Sleep with a guy who tried to copy off her in junior high? Pass. Mollie’s sex life is flatlining… until a deliciously handsome man she’s never seen before stops to help her fix a flat tire.   As an ex-mobster, Rafe Maguire’s no saint. But he’s trying to turn over a new leaf. Although he probably shouldn’t kiss the hot doctor on the side of the highway. Or suggest a no-strings fling with a woman he has no business pursuing. Rafe’s life is too complicated for love—his new WITSEC-provided identity doesn’t fit him at all and there’s a U.S. Marshal watching his every move. He can’t tell Mollie the truth… but their chemistry is scorching and being good doesn’t mean he can’t be a little bad.   Mollie can’t resist the guy who looks rough, talks tough, and is loyal to the bone. But it’s obvious Rafe is keeping secrets. When the truth comes out, Mollie must decide if she could ever love an ex-mobster… or if this bad boy has truly gone good.

                                Excerpt: 
“Let’s be clear—when we have sex, it’ll take a while. Because I plan to take my time. Drawing a connecting line with my tongue between each of your freckles. Giving you ample opportunity to decide if you prefer clockwise or counterclockwise circles on your nipples. Discovering what pushes you over the line from panting to moaning. It’ll be a whole-night deal. One that’ll probably pick up again before the sun breaches the horizon.” He pushed back the starched lapels of her lab coat.
“Is that so?” Mollie never knew she liked dirty talk. Now she knew. For sure. Or, at least, she knew that when Rafe did it, every nerve in her body came to attention and waved, frantically, in a silent plea for him to continue. Count that as her self-actualization for the day.
Rafe didn’t answer. He couldn’t. His mouth was full, clamped on to her breast over her scrub top. Using only his teeth, he bit down on her nipple just hard enough to make her toes tighten. At the same time, he used his hand to squeeze the other breast. The combination of the hard pinch and the firm but soft pressure rolled her eyes back in her head. Fully clothed goodness. Oh-so-goodness.
Ten minutes. Ten little minutes. Technically, just long enough to run to the bathroom, grab another jelly donut, and gulp down a coffee. Not an exorbitant or irresponsible amount of time at all. Plus, she’d finished with Olivia in record time. That ought to give her at least seven extra minutes? To balance being a good doctor against resolving too many months of sexual frustration?
Damn it, she’d rationalize—or not—later. Because right now, Rafe was untying the knot holding her pants up.
“I like the way you move against me. I’ll like it even more when we’re naked.”
“Agreed.” Although Mollie hadn’t even noticed the undulation of her hips until Rafe pointed it out. The motion had been an unconscious reflex. Cause and effect from his burning, knowing touch.
He curved his fingers into a claw shape and lightly raked them down her satin panties. This time, Mollie was very conscious of rocking her hips forward to meet him. To get more pressure to relieve the skyrocketing ache between her legs.
Instead, Rafe scraped lightly again. Which was teasing and wonderful and utterly insufficient. Mollie threaded her fingers through his thick hair, trying to pull him closer. All it did was pull a chuckle out of him. “Trust me, babe. I’ll get you there.”
“Oh, I do. I most definitely do.” She might not know . . . well, much of anything about the dark-haired man with his hands down her pants. But Mollie did, one hundred percent trust that Rafe knew his way around a woman’s body. That he knew it as libidinously as she knew it anatomically.

Blurb:

When their business partner and friend Scott dies, brothers Austin and Ezra retreat from the world, to regroup, to write a book, to grieve. They return to Lightpointe, a tiny village where Scott grew up, and take up residence in an abandoned lighthouse.

While Austin is drawn into the eccentric seaside village they live on the outskirts of, Ezra loses himself in the pain of his best friend’s death. He wanders the beach and their lighthouse, stuck in his grief and the life he left behind, until a handsome stranger on the beach intrigues him. He strikes up a friendship with the eccentric Milo, a quiet distraction as his brother begins dating again.

Both Austin and Ezra are falling in love. But as Austin learns more about the village, it becomes clear that Milo is hiding things about his past.

And losing someone else might destroy Ezra.

 


Excerpt:  
The days take on a kind of rhythm. I wake too early and spend an hour on the beach, drinking coffee and watching the waves, wishing like hell my best friend was at my side. Then I stumble back in, cold and windblown, and Austin will coax me out for breakfast. Then we’ll go our separate ways, like we can’t be around each other too long before we have to break apart, the weight of our dead friend driving us into different circles.
                I try to not think too hard about where Austin is going, about what he’s doing to cope with the grief that should be getting easier to bear, except it’s not. The kid has a good head on his shoulders, and I’m pretty sure whatever he’
s doing, it
’s more geeky than it is dangerous.
                At least he isn’t turning into a closet alcoholic, anyway. He’s ahead of me in the game if that's the case.
                The truth is I am trying. There are days where I can't breathe for the pain, the crushing loss. There are days when Austin can’t pull me out of my nest on the couch, and I feel bad about it every time it happens, but I also can’t make it stop.
                Austin sits close and quiet, until the pain recedes enough for me to emerge from the blankets and then he retreats, not bothering to acknowledge the awkward thanks I nod at him.
                But for the most part, I function. Gingerly. There are missteps and setbacks, but I function.
                Slowly.
                Painfully.
               
I live.

From Rebecca Barber comes Taking Charge, Book 1 from her brand new series Meet The McIntyres



BLURB


Beau McIntyre knew the party had to end sometime – he just didn’t realise it would end so soon. After receiving a frantic phone call from his younger brother, Beau is forced to face his responsibilities and return to the small country town and the farm he grew up on.

After finding her fiancé in bed with another woman, Payton packs up her life and her livelihood and escapes her personal torment by fleeing to the country. Settling in a small town, she works her butt off to establish her bakery and turn her dream into everything she ever wanted. 


The moment Beau meets the voluptuous Payton, there's an instant spark and he quickly decides that despite the drama facing his family, Payton could be the one good thing in his life. The only problem is that Payton clearly has no interest in anything more than a night or two of uninhibited passion.


Will Beau be able to convince Payton to give him a chance of something more, by letting go of her painful past?

Excerpt: 
David practically flew across the lounge to get to Lauren. The sound of her head hitting the edge of the black lacquered piano was horrific, his entire being immediately going into protection mode. He couldn’t get to her fast enough. Miles was already by her side kneeling next to her as several patrons crowded around with looks of concern.
David pulled her into his lap. “Is she bleeding, Miles? Is she breathing?”
“I don’t see any blood. She’s knocked out cold.” Miles’ face was ghostly white.
David lifted her into his arms and hurriedly carried her across the room. He was taken aback by how light she was, realizing she must have lost a lot of weight. A security guard had arrived by this time letting him know that the paramedics were on their way. Tim, the bartender ushered them into a small office out of the public eye. David gently set her on a worn, leather chair and knelt in front of her, stroking her cheek.
“Lauren? Lauren, darling please wake up!” He turned to Tim. “Can you please get me some ice for her head?” Tim nodded and quickly exited.
Miles looked on and ran his hand through his jet black hair. His bow tie had been loosened and hung limply around his neck. “One minute she was singing and the next, she flubbed the intro of our last song and was on the floor. She had a weird expression. I knew something was wrong.”
David kept stroking his fingers across her cheeks staring at her face, willing her to open her eyes. He felt guilty for startling her during the last song. He had wanted to wait till the show was over and the crowd had thinned out before he approached her. But hearing her lovely voice echo down the hallway of the hotel made him desperate to see her, to lay eyes on her after being away for so long. The anticipation of seeing her again had him muddled from the time he had arrived in the states—he could hardly concentrate on anything else. Now she was unconscious, lying helpless before him, making his heart heavy with worry. If anything were to happen to her….
A small moan escaped her pink lips, and she shifted in the seat.
“Lauren, open your eyes. Please, open your eyes,” he pleaded.
Her eyes fluttered open and immediately pooled with tears staring back at him. “You’re here,” she whispered. He pulled her gently into an embrace as she started to cry, clutching the back of his neck. He rocked her silently, his own eyes filling with tears.
“There, there, love. It’s all right. Thank God, you’re all right.” He couldn’t let go of her and did his best to try to maintain his composure. “I missed you so much. You have to know that,” he whispered into her ear. She nodded, her grip tightening around him.
