BLURB:

Born and bred to rule, I embraced my place in our family with pride.

I was the leader. The boss. The king.

Fueled by my family’s need for revenge, I was on a bloody path toward vengeance. That’s when I found her—a filthy, weak, broken girl.

The mystery that surrounded her seduced me. Her secrets pulled me down to the deepest pits of hell, the demons of her past threatening to burn the empire I swore to protect.

Now the devil himself is knocking at my door, wanting his beautiful, broken girl back.

But she’s mine now. I claimed her. And anyone who dares to take her away from me will be completely, utterly, royally…

Fucked.

Untouchable by K.L. Ramsey

“Em’s craving chocolate cake and she may be in labor. I’m going to need to borrow your SUV and go check on her. I might be awhile, since we may have to head to the hospital, so she can be checked. I’ll drop you at your place first.” He motioned for Carter to follow, as he started to race out Kacey’s door.

“I should hang out here, help Kacey with her car, and maybe we could walk to the store.” Carter had them both whipping around to face him.

“Wait, what?” Kacey wasn’t sure if she liked Carter’s idea, that would mean they had to spend time together, alone. Although that was something that she always dreamed of, the possibility of it actually happening scared the shit out of her.Craving Forbidden Anthology Untouchable KL Ramsey #2

“Yeah, what? I swear to God, Carter, I don’t have time to make you repeat the bro code about little sisters. You need to keep your hands, and all of your other body parts, away from Kacey, clear?” Sam was eyeing Carter suspiciously, causing Kacey even more panic at the thought of being completely alone with him. There was a bro code? How did she miss them talking about Carter not being allowed to touch her? Did she get a vote in this or was it strictly between the two Neanderthals standing next to her?

“Yeah, yeah. We’ve talked about me not dating or touching or even thinking about your sister for years. I know the whole speech verbatim. But look at her, she’s not little any more, and we aren’t eighteen.” Sam didn’t seem happy about leaving them alone, but he had no choice. He shook his head at Carter and mouthed the words, ‘bro-code’ as he pulled Kacey in for a quick hug. He left, slamming her door on the way out. Suddenly, her little apartment felt even smaller and she was finding it hard to think, or breathe for that matter. She felt a little woozy, and thank goodness Carter seemed to notice. He wrapped his arms around her, pulling her into his side.

“Whoa, Kace, you okay?” He lifted her into his arms and carried her to the sofa, setting her down as if she were fragile. The man just lifted her up, as if she didn’t eat four donuts yesterday, and carried her across the room, and damn it, she loved every second of it.

“I haven’t had any breakfast yet, I must be hungry.” She liked the way he sat down next to her and pulled her into his body. She willingly climbed into his lap, still a little groggy from her dizzy spell.

“How about you let me make you something to eat and then I’ll take a look at your car.” Carter leaned in to kiss her temple, and the sweet gesture had her even more confused. He had never even looked in her direction, and now she was practically sitting on his lap and he was butterfly kissing her forehead.

“What the hell is going on here, Carter?” She tried to sit up from his hold, but he pulled her back down into his hard body.

“Don’t, Kace. Don’t pretend that you didn’t write a whole damn column about me. Don’t pretend that you don’t want me touching you, holding you, kissing you. I can’t believe you never told me, Kacey. Why?” She shook her head, wanting to deny everything that he just said but knowing that she had no defense—she wrote that column. Honestly, she meant every word that poured out of her last night, every damn sappy, loving word. She would forever think of Carter as the one who might have been, but now he was sitting on her sofa, touching her and kissing her, making her want more from him—so much more. Did he really understand what she wanted? Would he be willing to give her everything that she craved from him, or would he hold true to his ‘bro code’ with her brother?

About Craving author K.L. Ramsey

K.L. Ramsey was born and raised in Maryland. As a child she struggled in school, having to attend speech and reading therapy. Her teacher told her that she would never be a very good reader; that English was just not her thing. She continued to struggle until eleventh grade, when she signed up for a Creative Writing class. Her high school teacher saw her potential and submitted a short story, that K. L. had written for class, to a local literary publication. The story was not only published but won an award for best short story. Knowing that someday she wanted to become a writer, K. L. received her BA in English from Salisbury State University.

K.L. Ramsey currently resides in West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). She lives with hunky scientist, two now not so little people, and six fur babies. In her spare time, she likes to read romance novels, attend WVU football games and drink wine with girlfriends.

Tea or coffee? Coffee in the morning, to wake up and around three, in the afternoon. Tea (Earl Gray) when I’m sick or it is really cold out.

Paperback/Hardcover or ebook? Ebook, usually. But, I have attended a few signings and love to have authors sign their books!

Vampire or shifter? Neither- not my thing.

Cop or fireman? Sandwich- why choose?

Snow or sunny skies? Both! I am one of those rare people who love snow. How can you pass up a sunny day though?

Beach or mountain ski resort? Currently, I live in the mountains of West Virginia, but I hope to move to the beach in the next five to eight years. So, both.

Coke or Pepsi? I don’t drink any soda, or pop (depending where you are and what you call it).

HEA or a more realistic ending? Always HEA and if there is a baby born or conceived by the end of the book, I’m a happy girl!

Chick flick or action movie? Both! Chick flicks are for when my hubby is traveling for business and action movies are for date nights!

City or country? Country, but I’ve live in both. New York City was a fun place to live, but I do love the country.

More beautiful: Sunset or sunrise? Sunset because I’m a troll if I have to get up before sunrise!

Car or plane? Car, unless the plane is taking me to a beach somewhere.

iPhone or Android? Android

Mac or PC? PC

Kindle or Nook? Kindle

Listen to audiobook or read? When I edit, I listen to my book. When I read for pleasure, read on my kindle app.

Crossing Jordan by Ryan Jo Summers
 
Fifteen minutes later, Jordan stood in the produce section of Cimarron Shores’ grocery store, studying tomatoes. A salad sounded good with her dinner. Beefsteak or cherry? Selecting two ripe beefsteak, she moved on to lettuce. Romaine or iceberg? A movement two rows over caught her eye, then a smile crossed her face as her heart skipped a couple of beats and warmth pulsed through her.
Will pushed a cart slowly along the apple and pear aisle, a confused look on his face. She had to admit, it looked cute on him. So did the tight, gray ARMY t-shirt under his untucked flannel shirt and painted-on blue jeans. Umm-umm. If they used him in their recruitment posters, ladies would be flocking to enlist in the Army.
“Hey, Will,” she greeted as their carts almost bumped. “Fancy meeting you here.”
Please don’t let him be scared off by Derek too. She found she was holding her breath.
A blush touched his stubble-roughened cheeks and he waved a long list clutched in his hand. “Hi. I’m trying to help Grams and Mom with their weekly shopping. Grams gave me a detailed list.” He shook the paper again. “But she left a lot of the details out.”
Jordan couldn’t help but smile at his clear confusion. Poor guy probably didn’t shop much—at least not for a café like The White Orchid. She liked his sheepish grin, enjoying how it made her toes curl and butterflies to take off in her stomach. She sucked in a deep breath to steady herself and gripped the cart handle. Then she moved around the cart so they stood hip to hip. She breathed in his woodsy aftershave. He smelled so masculine. And sexy.
“Maybe I can help. I’m pretty good at shopping.” She eyed his cart. He didn’t have 41698815_2111926765506481_2652317290837573632_nanything in there but a loaf of bread. He extended the list, relief on his face.
“Granny Smith apples. Six pounds,” she read. “What detail did she leave out for that?”
Will shook his head. “Grams isn’t a Smith. She was a Mead before she married Gramps and became a Larkin. So who is Granny Smith and what does she have to do with apples?”
Jordan swallowed her giggle, hiding behind brushing her knuckles over her chin. “That’s a type of apple, usually used for baking because they have a tart flavor.” She waved her hand to the signs over the apple bins. The light flickered above Will’s head as he scanned the names.
“I’ll be,” he said slowly, more color flushing his cheeks. He turned back to Jordan, that sexy boyish grin playing over his lips. “You must think I’m a real dunce.”
She thought he was real cute, and a strong desire to kiss him stole over her.

A Step in the Right Direction By Melinda Valentine

Fuck, he wanted a drink.

Just one. He knew for a fact Molly wouldn’t disappoint if he took her upstairs right now. He could grab a beer and they could have their own kind of party. He could feel his mouth fill with saliva. His stomach felt tight.

He pried Molly off himself. Without a word, he bolted to the bathroom.
