Gaurded Heart, By C. A. Harms


He continued to look at me as he lowered his gaze to my lips causing him to lick his lower lip. For God sakes just kiss me already. I felt like yelling it out. Forget it, damn it; I’ll do it. I pushed off the counter and brought my hands to his face and met his lips with mine. He responded immediately as he placed his hands on my hips and pulled me closer. “Is that a yes to getting to know each other?” he whispered against my lips and I smiled in return. “Yes, I would love to spend more time with you. You have to know though I am going to be horribly insecure, jealous and clingy. I have a terrible view of relationships and I am trying to look passed it all. You just have to know it may not be easy. If that’s too much…I understand.” He kissed me again, this time his tongue brushed my lower lip and then he pulled away entirely too soon causing me to pout. A sexy grin spread across his face again, “Don’t worry about it; I think I can handle you.” He winked and then he guided me back outside to join the party.


Samantha was less than a week from her wedding. She had it all or so she thought. Her world was turned upside down in the blink of an eye. Had the last four years of her life been a complete lie? We she ever be able to open up and let love in?

5 of 5 stars

I was asked to review this book by the author so here we go! This is a story about a girl Sam who gets done wrong by a man! But her two best friends Mitch and Allison who are there for her throughout everything want her to try and move on! Although it is very hard she is introduced to a guy by her 2 best friends the attraction is undeniable they have a instant chemistry that is cosmic! But it’s not easy and there is many different bumps or should I say hills in the road! LOL It is a very good read I couldn’t put it down! C.A. Harms out did herself. I have to say in the short time I’ve been reviewing her books she has quickly became one of my favorite authors.

Book Insiration— I love to write about real life and things that happen everyday. I myself have not experienced this type of loss but someone very near and dear to me has and I was the Allison in the story. I was the one that held the head of my loved one and stood by there side through it all. I felt her hurt and dried her tears and in the end she met her Wes…not the same way of course but now she is happily married and going strong.

Forget Me Not, By Sarah Daltry

Product Details

Lily had a crush on her brother’s best friend, Derek for years – which led to their steamy night ten months ago in her bedroom. Now, Lily is going off to college and she and Derek are still going strong. However, when school starts, she realizes it’s hard to maintain a relationship while also trying to live her own life. She and Derek find themselves falling apart and Lily has no idea where to turn.

Enter Jack. Everything about him is wrong for Lily and she knows it, but she can’t stop herself from being attracted to him. When things implode with Derek, it’s Jack who is there to pick up the pieces – and show Lily an entirely new set of experiences she didn’t know she was missing.

Of course, Jack has his own problems and once Lily gets to know him better, she starts to wonder if she can handle all of Jack. When Derek reappears on the scene, Lily is forced to decide between two guys and herself. Can she find herself without losing the people who matter in the process?

This is a work intended for readers 18+ as it features explicit sex between people in college. See where it began in the short story, “Her Brother’s Best Friend.”

He gathers his things and sits next to me on the bed. I am being a brat, but I’m angry and frustrated and I have no control over any of it. He pulls me toward his chest and runs his hands through my hair.

“I love you Lily. The first semester is tough. I missed you so much last year, you know, but then I came home for your birthday and the distraction got me through the rest of the semester. Let me be your distraction, okay? Call me if you need anything. If I am in class or whatever, I will call back as soon as I can.”


“I love you. You know that?”

“Yeah. I love you too,” I say, because it is true and, this miserable moment aside, I can’t deny that I do.

“Skype tonight, okay?”


“You wanna come with me to the car or-”

“It’ll be easier just to say bye now,” I say. And so we do. He is gone and I wait, foolishly thinking that maybe he will turn around, come back, and decide that he wants to stay longer. When he texts me an hour later, saying he made it back okay, I collapse onto my bed, crying. I have never felt so alone. In my mind, he’s in the middle of some drunken orgy with three girls right now, even though he is texting me and that makes no sense.

Inspiration: I wrote “Her Brother’s Best Friend” some time ago. It was just supposed to be a short story, but I loved the idea of finally getting to be with that guy you dreamed about for years and the story sold really well. I thought about where I wanted the story of Lily and Derek to go and started with a draft of something. It wasn’t working, though. Eventually I decided to make it a novella instead and it started to pick up. Once I got going and once I met the characters, I ended up with almost 55k words and it just all made sense. It’s not the story I thought it would be, but I like the one that it is.

K.R. Haynes and her latest, The Fire in Her Eyes


Since the first night Officer Mick Huon met Mary J Sinclair down at the Convict Inn, fiery sparks of passion have flown between the two of them. After stealing one kiss from her, Mick decides it’s best if he keeps his distance from Mary J, mainly due to his steadily rising affection for her that was stirred up from one brief tender moment they shared. What Mick hadn’t counted on was for Mary J to seduce him. The woman has a fire within her that sets him ablaze with primal lust. To tame a stubborn redhead like Mary J, Mick will have to pull out all the stops if he’s planning on enticing her into his bed.

But when Mary J’s dark past collides with the present, it stirs up more trouble than they were both prepared for. Can Mick conquer Mary J’s past in time or will he end up losing her forever?

What Inspired you to write the book :

I have always wanted to write but wasn’t entirely sure what genre I wanted to write for. Then I happen to stumble upon Erotic Romance novels one day a few years back and became addicted to them. So a couple of years I sat down and began writing my own novels and haven’t looked back. The best thing I like about the Erotic Romance genre isn’t just the explosive sex scenes, it’s more the deep emotional connection you form with your characters whether your writing about them or reading about them, and that connection is what’s important to me. I want my readers to feel what the Hero and Heroine are feeling and laugh when they laugh and cry when they cry. That’s what I aim for every time I put pen to paper and begin writing a new novel.

Story excerpt :

“Do you regret what happened between us that night in the chapel? Is that why you flaunted your date in front me the other night?” Mary J asked him quietly.

“Now wait just a damn minute there, sweetness, before you go accusing me of doing wrong by you. For one thing, I never intentionally flaunted my date in front of you and I’ve just apologised for it, so far as I’m concerned it’s history. Secondly, I don’t regret a damn thing when it comes to you or even when I’m with you.” Oh shit did he just say that out loud? A quick glance at Mary J and Mick knew he had. The shocked look on her face was clearly evident from hearing his untimely omission. He would be the first to admit that he had just screwed this whole evening up by having a slip-of-the-tongue moment. Fuck.

Scrubbing a hand roughly through his hair, Mick raised his gaze to hers and forced the words that he needed to say to her out of his damnable mouth. “I’m going about this all the wrong way. Look, Mary J, I just came here tonight to apologise to you for the way I acted the other night. That’s all.”

Disappointment flashed in her eyes for a moment and Mick wanted to kick his own ass for putting it there. He real did suck at apologising to her and his efforts at trying to woo her sucked even more. Christ, he was going to need to do some serious grovelling to fix the mistakes he had made with her so they could both move past this and move on to more pleasurable activities he had in mind for them.

But seeing Mary J cross her arms over her chest as she moved from behind her desk to stand in front of him only increased his need to see her submit to him. Christ, even his dick was getting onboard at seeing her little act of defiance. His cock was throbbing like a son of a bitch, all because it wanted out of his jeans so it could dive straight into her luscious heat.

Right then, Mick could hardly wait for the day when he could strip her naked and tie her spread eagle to his bed so he could give her so much damn pleasure she would be begging him for release time and time again. However, instead of acting on those erotic urges of his, he settled for something more romantic by tucking an errant curl behind her ear. Her eyes were simmering with heated lust when she gazed up at him through lowered lashes. Slowly and tenderly, Mick brushed the back of his knuckles down her cheek and smiled to himself at hearing her soft intake of breath.

Review : This review is for the first novel in the In Her Eyes series :
