~~BOOK #11 - HOW YOU REMIND ME~~

A super-sexy BONUS short by New York Times & USA Today best-selling author,

JULIE LETO

Sexy guitarist Shaw Tyler knows lawyer Kate Schaffer’s personal fantasies. Trouble is, she doesn’t remember why. He spent one night in her bed, but since then, Kate acts like their liaison never happened. Kate used to live a wild and crazy life. After a scary black-out, she cleaned up her act. She longs for a passionate liaison with Shaw, but is she willing to take the chance at reliving past mistakes?


~~PRAISE FOR JULIE LETO~~


“Julie Elizabeth Leto always delivers sizzling, snappy, edgy stories!”--New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips.

“Blazing hot! A story so seductive you can’t stop reading!”--New York Times bestselling author Virginia Henley

“Steamy sensuality and passion keep the reader swiftly turning pages.”--Rendezvous

What are Amazon readers saying?

“Leto expertly turns every "oh-no" twist of her plot into an "oh-yes", taking the readers for a racy, romantic rollercoaster ride.”

“This book was a moment in time where two people found out about one another and about themselves. And there are some steamy scenes to boot!”

“How You Remind Me was filled with romance, deceit, forgiveness and hot, hot sex; it certainly packed quite a punch!”


~~EXCERPT~~

“What’s wrong?” he asked, sliding across the corner of the stage so he could stand beside her.

She jumped back, startled, and then pushed at the frames of her glasses and straightened her shoulders. “Why would you assume something was wrong?”

His gaze dropped to his arm where she’d made contact. “You touched me.”

“I—,” she faltered. “I needed to get your attention.”

And she’d gotten more than she’d bargained for. That brief moment of her skin against his had evoked a myriad of sensations that had nearly knocked her off her feet. Or maybe it was just the swiftness with which he moved or the strong, spiced scent of him, a heady mix of sweat and soap and man.

He grinned again, taking a jab at the durability of her knees.

“Katie-gate, not a moment goes by when you don’t have my full and undivided attention.”

She narrowed her eyes, trying to spot a hint of disingenuousness. She didn’t spot any, but that didn’t mean he wasn’t simply a master of concealing his true intentions. She trusted that Shaw was, at his core, a good guy. But he was also a musician and in her extensive experience, they weren’t entirely trustworthy when it came to sex.

Though, if he went along with what she had in mind, he wouldn’t need to be trustworthy. Just ready, willing and able to entertain a brief affair during the off-hours of her very busy weekend.

But first she had to see if he was really interested and hadn’t just fallen into a comfortable pattern of flirting with her with total certainty that she would once again turn him down.

“Why do you do that?” she asked.

“Do what?”

“Flirt with me. All the time. You never stop.”

The lack of exasperation in her voice stunned her. She wasn’t frustrated like usual...she was simply asking a question.

He gave a quick glance at Erica, as if checking to see if he had time to pursue this conversation with her before his next performance. Kate, of course, knew they had at least ten minutes. She’d written the speech herself.

His hand shot toward her elbow, but out of instinct, she sidestepped his touch.

Why did she keep doing that? What was she so afraid of?

It didn’t take a psychologist or even a close girlfriend to figure it out. Shaw represented her past—her wild, reckless past—a lifestyle that she was glad to have moved on from. Except that when she really opened her eyes, he was more than that. He was good-looking and talented, but he was also a long-time friend of Erica’s and a persistent flirt. 

And if his flirtations were for real, she might have a shot at having some fun for the first time in a long, long time.

~~BOOK #10 - WILD IRISH RIDE~~

Given a second chance at forbidden love, Alexi plunges headlong into the passion Jesse ignites. To Jesse, love is an overrated word for getting ones needs met. There is no Primrose Lane in his book, but he’ll take Alexi on the ride of her life. Maybe then, he can get her out of his head.

"From start to finish , it's hot and steamy sex with a twist. Good story line. Now I want to read his brothers story."


~~EXCERPT~~

Where she was going?

He knew what it was like to be shark bait and Alexi was sailing through the water with her head held high, but even through the light rain he could see she was bleeding inside as she drew abreast of him. Tears streamed down her face and her full lips trembled. She stumbled and reached for something to break her fall, but only grasped air.

Shit. He rushed forward and caught her arm before she hit the ground, his instinct towards her stronger than his will.

"Oh!" She turned and surprise washed over her face. She breathed his name, as if he were an answer to a prayer. “Jesse.”

Hell, she still looked too damn innocent and vulnerable for his good. Twelve years and she still had the power to get under his skin even though he knew how deadly she could be. Maybe it was time to turn the tables, collect on what he missed and wipe her from his mind.  She couldn’t be as good as he remembered her being.

Alexi blinked as heat invaded the chill that had stolen through her since she’d seen the pictures of Roger. She tingled as she looked at the rugged face and chiseled chest of the man who'd just saved her from falling. Half a day’s dark stubble covered his rough jaw; and his deep sea-blue eyes, crinkled at the corners from the sun, warily assessed her then stared at her mouth. Tension oozed from him. She had no trouble connecting the man to the wild devil who'd led her astray years ago then broke her heart.

Small towns had their good side and bad side of the tracks, and the wild Weldon boys had been known a time or two to paint their side a bit blacker. Jesse’s reputation had been the worst. She hadn’t believed that until he'd used her to steal from her family. Over the years, she’d heard from Jesse's mother Emma, who worked at the hospital, about Jesse’s stellar military career and security business in Washington D.C. Knowing he’d turned his life around made her glad, but didn’t ease the hurt he’d left behind. 

“Still a virgin on the run after all these years, Lexi?” he drawled. His voice, as steamy and seductive as Southern summer day, challenged her on an elemental level, a sensual one.
"Almost," Alexi said, letting the last illicit picture she had of Roger fall from her grasp to the ground. She'd only ever been with Roger and he didn't count. Not anymore. She sucked in air, latching onto Jesse’s appeal. The reporters encircled them. Jesse lifted his hot gaze to her eyes and smiled.

"Almost?" Slow and sexual, his grin spread awareness through her. "Sounds frustrating. Interested in changing that?" He ran his finger under her chin and she caught her breath.
Yes, some part deep inside her shouted. Yes, she wanted to change that. Here was one situation her grandmother couldn’t smooth over with a lie. With the cameras rolling, Roger and her grandmother would get a clear picture that Alexi meant it when she said she wasn’t marrying Roger ever.

“Yes,” Alexi said to Jesse, stepping closer to him. Waves of his sex appeal washed over her. Waves she had no trouble remembering, though she'd only been seventeen when she'd last dipped into them. His nearness and touch sparked something inside of her that wanted to rebel against everything that had just happened to her. “Kiss me,” she demanded, loudly.
Jesse arched his brow and asked softly, "What’s your game Lexi?” He slid an arm around her and pulled her flush to his bare chest, her breasts to his smooth, hard muscle. Then his mouth covered hers. She gasped at the desire shooting through her as his demanding tongue entered her mouth and his gaze dared her to respond.

She wound her arms around his neck, pressed closer to him, and met his tongue with hers. Surprise that she’d taken him up on his challenge filled his eyes and he hesitated, but only for a moment before he delivered a four-alarm kiss. He bent her back over his arm, inserted his leg between hers and had one hand cupping her bottom, no doubt knocking the socks off the gossip hounds surrounding them. In one kiss Jesse thoroughly ravished her from the inside out and she burned for more. By trying to deliver a message to her grandmother, Alexi wondered what message had she delivered to herself instead.

Jesse ended the kiss, but kept her captive in his embrace as he stared into her eyes. She ran her fingers into the silk of his hair and then surprised herself by kissing him again. His heat chased away the chill Roger had left inside her and she couldn’t seem to get enough of it. He groaned then and deepened the kiss. Her hands clung to his broad shoulders, feeling the heat of his bare skin and the strength of his muscled torso. The cameras continued to flash and the world swirled crazily around her as her heart pounded hard at the line she crossed by embracing a half-naked Jesse so intimately in public. 

He smelled faintly of aftershave and some indefinable, but intriguing scent. His body, strong and sure, eased around hers, a balm to her chaffed emotions. Yet before she could lose herself in him completely, he eased back and stared hard at her. Emotion and desire collided in her heart, springing tears to her eyes. "Get me out of here, please," she whispered.
Cool cynicism descended into the heat of his gaze. "So that's your angle. You need a hero, even if it's a Weldon." Glancing up at the reporters around them, he cursed. "Well, your highness, these days I charge for services rendered, and I expect to get paid." He scooped her into his arms and rammed through the reporters. “I’ll be your hero for a price.”
"What do you mean by that?" she asked, struggling in his arms as he headed to the parking lot. Reporters followed.

Jesse stopped a moment to meet her gaze. A sensual promise curved his lips. “We’ll take care of the details later. The choice is yours, Lexi. Me or the sharks following us?" 

"You," she said, wondering if she'd just made a deal with the devil in Georgia.

#Excerpt ~ Book 9 HTSF Romance boxed set ~ Amber Rules


Heroes To Swoon For Boxed Set
11 Sizzling Contemporary Romances

Multi-author boxed set
Genre: Contemporary Romance Anthology
Release Date: December 8, 2014

New Release Sale Price: $0.99 Limited Time. Purchased separately, the books in this set would cost over $30. Nine Full-Length Novels, 1 Novella, and 1 Short Story from NY Times, USA Today, National and International Bestselling Authors.

~~BOOK #9 - Amber Rules~~

For years, Amber was the main attraction in her father's self-help infomercials. Now that Dooley’s gone, all Amber has to do to earn her inheritance is improve the mental game of the biggest bad-ass in the N.B.A., Evan Oliver. Too bad Amber knows nothing about basketball or life coaching. Too bad Even Oliver is determined to do things his own way, especially when it comes to teaching Amber a new set of rules.



~~EXCERPT~~

“Where are we going?”

“Someplace more private.” Evan passed the stairs, stopped beneath the landing where it was even darker and studied Amber one more time as if considering his next move carefully.

If he’d nearly pushed her buttons on the dance floor, what would Evan do in a more discreet location? How far would Amber let him go? Her body trembled with anticipation and three years of pent up need as she waited for Evan to decide what to do with her, praying he wouldn’t have second thoughts, determined not to have any herself for at least another five minutes.

Tangling his fingers in Amber’s hair, Evan dragged her to him for a feverish kiss that demanded more than lips became involved. He crushed Amber against his hard, unyielding body, using his long arms and big hands to bind them together as if they were physically joined. It took only moments for it to seem natural for Amber’s pelvis to strain against each thrust of his hips, as if they were naked and he were inside of her. It was decadently thrilling and dangerously hot. It was bittersweet relief when Evan drew back enough to slip a hand inside the bodice of Amber’s dress to cup one lace cocooned breast, to squeeze her nipple until she ached for release. 

Amber gasped for breath, burning for a more intimate touch. For sex. Full body pounding, nakedly urgent sex. But not here. Not where they might be discovered. Amber only wanted one more kiss. One more steamy stroke…

Evan’s hand wound its way inside Amber’s panties and then he thrust a finger inside her. She moaned tremulously against his mouth as she peaked, her heat spilling around him. Restless energy made her limbs shake. And then Evan withdrew and Amber would have sunk to the floor if he hadn’t held her close. 

This is what deprivation did to a woman.

It made her greedy and wanton.

Can Drew solve the case before Mack loses her control completely?



~~EXCERPT~~

I stood in the communications center chatting with one of the dispatchers while I sipped my coffee, when the sound of strong, solid, confident steps reached my ears. I leaned back from where I stood to get a better angle down the hall. 

Holy hell, Greek gods really did exist. I had never believed it before, but today, I saw one in the living, breathing flesh. Even the harsh flickering yellow fluorescent lights that lit the industrial-looking hallway did nothing to distract from this masterpiece. His black dress shoes reflected the light as they rapped out a cadence on the plain white floor covering. His black dress pants held the perfect crease as they slithered up his legs. With each step forward, the muscles bunched as they pushed against the polished cotton. A simple silver buckle on his dress belt winked at me, taunting me.

I locked my jaw to contain my drool. His tan dress shirt with thin black stripes, top button undone, and sleeves rolled up set off his physique to perfection, as if tailored for him. 

His chin was down as he stared at the floor. Could he feel my gaze stripping him naked? Was that why he slowly lifted his chin? Immediate recognition lit his face, and something flickered in his bright blue eyes. The grin that spread over his full lips dipped ever-so-slightly on the right. Holy hell was right! This man could make an angel fall from grace with just a smile. 

“There she is,” his words bounced off the plain beige walls. 

A shiver threatened my spine; I pulled my shoulders back and stopped it. I moved to approach him, forcing myself to act normal and not like a bitch in heat. How many heads had this man turned without his noticing?

“Good morning, kid,” I joked and forced my heartbeat back to normal. 

“How are you this morning, Mack?” His smile grew wider as I stopped a foot in front of him. He leaned forward slightly and tipped his head to the right, something I noticed he did when he was comfortable. His shoulders were more relaxed than the straight-backed position he used when around unfamiliar people. 

I had also noticed that he normally wore a soft smile on his lips that would quickly widen, and he always looked people in the eye when he spoke.

How rare for a man to not only listen when you spoke, but actually focus on you and appear to contemplate the words you were saying. Although in our job, men were better than most at making that eye-to-eye contact. They were always looking for clues that people were giving out, watching the body language to get the full meaning of their words.

“I’m fine, thank you.” Body language, I shook my head as I walked past him to enter the unit and set about trying to clear my mind from the ogling I had just done. What I wouldn’t do to let my body talk to his. Our light banter continued as he waited for his coffee, it was only when he was pouring his cup that I turned back to face him. 

He looked so young, and maybe that’s why I chided myself when I found my gaze running down his backside and noticing how snugly his slacks fit over it. 

It’s been said that women in their forties are in the prime of their lives. They know what they want and generally they go after it. Yeah, not this time, I thought to myself sadly.
