TPND-KL Banner




TPND 500Book Title: The Player Next Door 
Author: Kathy Lyons 
Release Date: 7/21/15 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

About the Book:  NBA star Mike Giamaria doesn’t mix basketball with love. Ever. Then Mike meets Tori Williams, his cute, quirky new neighbor who seems hell bent on refurbishing her death trap of a house on her own. When she falls from her roof and into his arms, Mike knows he’s just caught a whole heap of trouble. 

Trouble sums up Tori's life. Despite her academic success, no one believes she can take care of herself—not her family, not her ex-boyfriend. She's determined to live her life on her own terms, and if that includes a hot summer fling with the super-sexy athlete next door, so much the better. 

But when Tori’s around, Mike can’t keep his mind on basketball. He wants…more. And to his horror, not just more time on the court. When training starts, it’s game over—ithas to be—unless Tori can convince Mike that love doesn't belong on the sidelines.

Excerpt:
  "I was wrong." "What, baby?" "I was wrong," she repeated as she slowly stretched her legs out. Mmmmm, she felt amazing. Her head dropped against the desk as she looked at him, all big and stunning even handcuffed to a chair. Pink cuffs on the right, leather cuffs on the left. Who knew that could look so sexy? "I thought I wanted to be in complete control, but..." She shook her head. "It's more fun to play together." He lifted his arms. "So uncuff me and I'll show you--" Ding dong. She looked up. So did he. "Electrician?" he asked. She shook her head. "Not until tomorrow." "Oh. Then–" Ding dong. Suddenly she remembered. "Oh shit. It's Wednesday." "It's Thursday." "I know. But he's just like me. Can't keep track of time." She snatched up the key, her mind working overtime. If she was right, he'd start banging on the door in about three seconds. Mike was already working on the leather cuff. "Who is it?" She couldn't get the damned key past the pink feathers and into the lock. He was moving too much, so she abandoned him to pull on her shorts. Bang bang bang. Yup. There he was. She fumbled zipping up her cutoffs. She glanced at Mike, her sense of the ridiculous making her giggle. At least he'd gotten one cuff off and was now scanning the floor for the other key. She tried to tell him she had it, but it was too late. She heard the front door open. Oh hell. Only one person had the other key to her house. She grabbed her tee, pulling it down. "Tori? Honey, are you here?" She straightened the shirt then fluffed out her hair. "Coming, daddy!" she called. Mike's head shot up. "Daddy?" he mouthed. She nodded, then dashed out the door, nearly tripping as she flew down the stairs. "Hi there!" she called, hugging her father tight. Then there were the usual pleasantries. The how are you, where's mom, what's going on type questions. It wasn't until they'd wandered into the kitchen together that she thought to wonder what the hell was taking Mike so long. He couldn't be hiding up there, could he? So she went to the bottom of the stairs. "Mike?" she called. "Come on down. I want you to meet my father." Silence. "Mike?" "There someone up there?" her father asked, coming to join her. "Yeah," she said. "My neighbor. You'll like him." The two of them climbed the stairs and headed for the office. Surely he’d had plenty of time to get himself together by now. "Mike?" she repeated, then they rounded the corner to see fully into the office. Which is when she realized that she still had the key to the pink fuzzy cuffs in her hand.

DON'T WAIT FOR THIS. WAIT FOR ME!

Title: Wait For Me
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 27, 2015
I’ve never been one for relationships and commitment. I get what I needed from girls but that’s where it ends. At least that was how it is supposed to be. Until that one night with Nicole changed everything. She is the only girl who has ever made me want more, and I hate it.
I have wanted more of Jason since the one night that we spent together. He has occupied my every dream and invaded my every though. He just needs to let me in and stop fighting it so much. I’m determined to show him exactly what he is missing. I’ll wait for him, but not forever.
What do you do when your whole world is turned upside down? When everything comes crumbling down around you, will you have the will to fight and break down the wall?
Wait For Me was originally Breaking Through The Wall and part of the Guarded Hearts Series. The story has been changed a bit and re-edited to make it a standalone novel.
**Wait For Me is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**
I tell Jason that he will be on his own the rest of the day. I am going to go to the mall and do some shopping.
“Can I come?”
He wants to go shopping with me? “Um…I guess, if you want to.”
We get dressed and head off to the mall. My purpose for coming today isn’t really because I need anything. However, my dad gave me a monthly credit card allowance, so I might as well put it to good use. I decide that maybe I will have some fun playing dress up for Jason today.
I take him into one of my favorite stores and have him sit on the chair outside of the dressing room. The first dress I try on is a short black one. It is strapless and looks pretty modest from the front, but when I turn around, the back of the dress dips into a V that stops just above my butt. When I turn around and look back, his face is priceless. This is definitely going to be fun.
I am trying on about my sixth dress, when the curtain to the changing room is pulled back. Jason walks in and immediately closes it back behind him. He closes the short distance between us and has me backed against the wall of the room. “J, What are you doing in here?!” I whisper at him, completely in shock that he is here. I only have the next dress halfway up my body right now, so my breasts are completely exposed.
“I can’t watch you walk out there in one more of those dresses. I need you now, I can’t wait.”
“Jason, I don’t think—” Before I can finish my sentence, he crashes his mouth against mine, and starts to slip off the remainder of the dress I had been trying on.

YOU WILL WANT TO BE CORRUPTED!

Title: Corrupted
Series: Russkaya Mafiya Novel
Author: Sapphire Knight
Genre: Contemporary, Erotica, Mafia, MC, Romantic suspense
Release Date: June 28, 2015
Viktor-

I was bred for this. For Mafiya.
Instead, I relinquished my crown to my younger brother.
I’m the dirty side of the Mafiya.
I clean up the messes. The bodies. The problems.
Here in America, I’m the Russian King.
I never expected to want my mark. To crave her, to need her.
One thing about being the leader of the Bratva, I always get what I want.
I’m corrupted, I never promised to play fair.

Elaina-

Unwanted and unloved.
I lay in that hospital bed, broken.
One bad decision and I almost killed someone,
myself included.
The dark shadow coming to finish the job,
turns out to be my bright light.
I try to hold back, fighting temptation.
Who would want someone so damaged?
He doesn’t know it, but I’m good at keeping secrets.
You have to be, when you have so many.






Regardless of feeling a presence behind me, I stay bent over. It’s one of those moments where you clench your tummy tightly and lie, telling yourself nothing’s behind you when in fact you know there really is something there.

I’m startled when a strong hand grasps my bicep, pulling me up and backward. I spin, ready to fight and let loose a piece of my mind. I’m met with Viktor’s serious expression about four inches from my face and it makes me pause, forgetting every word that had been wanting to come out.

“NO. You are wrong. I have been chasing you for months. Open your eyes.” He steps closer so I can feel his warm, sweet breath whisper over my face each time he speaks. “Printsyessa,” he whispers and tenderly takes my bottom lip between his.




I open the small container carefully, placing it under Tollfree’s nose. It only takes a second for him to jerk awake, eyes wide, ready to plead.



“Save it.” I grab a rag and stuff it in his mouth.

“I want to hear you scream, not your words. Your muffled whimpers will suit me just fine.” He shakes his head rapidly at me and tries to plead through the rag.

“I told you when we met that I collect what is owed to me. You hurt someone I love, and that’s the biggest debt you can ever owe me.”

“Na! Na!” he shouts through the rag.

“No?” I question and he shakes his head. “Ah, but you are mistaken. The answer is yes. You see, I love a sweet little blonde. She reminds me of a fairy, with her long, wispy hair and short legs.” He gazes at me, confusion clouding his features.





Elaina leans back, lips red and glistening, her eyes lit up with fire. “What do you want, Viktor?” she asks me boldly and my cock strains against my boxers.


Leaning up slightly, I push them off my hips so they pool at my feet. She licks her lips and I weave my hands through her smooth, Cinderella-like locks. I push her down easily until she rests on her knees, staring up at me with her bright blue, curious irises.

I grin at her as if she’s my prey. “Kiss it,” I purr and she gulps, staring at my dick, intimidated.






Elaina whimpers softly behind me and I reach back, squeezing her hand, attempting to comfort her. The bright light glints off the Mercedes and for the first time I notice the front of the vehicle. Sergei is laid out on the hood, throat slit, covered in dark blood.

I walk toward him, noticing something on the windshield. The club door bangs as it slams closed. I jump a little, ready to protect Elaina with my life if necessary. Twisting, I find Alexei, looking at me, perplexed.

“Shit! Boss?” He moves to do an area search.

“No. Stay with Elaina.” I growl at him and remove my gun, screwing on my silencer. I’m going to kill any of them that I find still here. They have nerve, coming at me, the king of the Bratva. I will feed each one to the fish if necessary. Whoever did this deserves to hurt. They will pay; I will make sure of it.

I carefully walk around the car and scan the surroundings but I find no one. I return to the front of the vehicle, and move closer to check on Sergei. He is very much dead and across the windshield in his blood, is smeared WAR.
