Excerpt
Shock wasn't a big enough word to describe how Lily felt, looking up to find Marc staring at her in that ballroom. Anyone else. It literally could have been anyone else – her father, Mickey Mouse, Hitler, and she would've been less surprised. Marcelle De Sant wasn't real, anymore. He was a figment of her imagination, something that usually only appeared late at night, when she was alone and missing a more dangerous time in her life. Besides, wasn't he supposed to be in Brazil!? Wasn't he ... anywhere she wasn't? Wasn't he not quite this good looking!? It's unfair that such a dick can be so good looking. Dancing with her was bad enough. They'd fought, as had always been in their nature, but it wasn't the same. She hated him. He'd lied to her, and he'd manipulated her, and he'd abandoned her. Told her she wasn't good enough, then told her to go home. She loathed him. And yet, his arm was around her, and his eyes were so blue, and she'd missed him so much. Rat bastard. And of course, along with fighting, their other old friend made an appearance – bad luck. Next thing Lily had known, she was being dragged upstairs and shoved into a bedroom. There was arguing. There was kissing. So really, it was just like old times. The bedroom door swung open, but she barely registered it. Marc's hands were moving over her body, pressing down on her breasts. He moved one lower, sliding it over her hip and around to her ass, pulling her away from the wall and into himself. She ran her hands down his chest and worked them under his jacket, smoothing around to his back. She bit into his bottom lip and that earned her yet another groan, followed by his tongue filling her mouth. Acting a part, acting a part. Not enjoying this at all. Nope, nooooope. People were in the room. Someone was barking questions in Spanish. Marc ignored them, and the hand on her ass suddenly moved and grabbed her thigh, yanking her leg up to his hip. She made a big show of pulling his belt apart, all while his mouth moved down her neck, leaving sloppy wet kisses in its wake. His hands were back at her chest and buttons flew as he yanked open her blouse. One hand went down the top of her tank, and suddenly Lily didn't care that they had an audience. Marc was touching her again, that was all that mattered. “Excuse me!” a voice barked out. “You cannot be in here. You go now.” Marc's free hand began rooting around in his pocket, and he pulled out a handful of pesos. He held them out to the nearest guard. “We go in twenty minutes,” he panted, shoving the money into an open hand. “Twenty minutes? Jesus, that's disappointing,” she gave a husky laugh, then moaned when the hand on her breast squeezed. “Alright. Twenty minutes. We come back, and you leave room,” they were warned. But neither of them could answer, as their mouths met again and their tongues moved against each other. Her mind had registered the length of time since he'd left her, but her body didn't notice it at all. It recognized his touch as if they'd been together just the day before; like no time had passed. It made it all even worse. Her brain had done a good job of pretending it was over him. But her body had longed for him for six months. Had missed him. Hadn't understood why he'd left. That thought brought her to her senses, and Lily abruptly shoved him away. They were both breathing hard. Marc's pants were undone and Lily's blouse was hanging open. Her matte red lipstick was smeared across his mouth and chin. She took a deep breath and smoothed her hands over her hips. “Okay, we need to figure this out, right now,” she told him. “Alright,” he agreed, though he seemed a little dazed. She resisted the urge to smirk. “I didn't come here for you. Nothing I've done in the last six months has been for you,” she lied. “You're not a part of this. You were never a part of this, except for a couple weeks in Africa. I will not let you ruin this for me again, De Sant. When we walk out of this room, you're going to leave the house, and I'm going to finish this job.” Marc's daze wore off and he glared as he put his pants back to rights. “I've been a part of this since the moment you opened that safe, and you know it. What do you think I've been doing this whole time? Fucking vacationing? I'm not exactly getting paid for this shit.” “No one asked you to do any of this shit. You just took it upon yourself. You just ran away and decided to solve a problem that wasn't even any of your business.” He flinched and Lily smiled. “I thought you'd understand,” he grumbled, glancing in a mirror that was behind her. He yanked off his bow tie and used it to wipe at lipstick around his mouth. “Then you thought wrong.”

Review
Stylo Fantome is Amazing.. 

Out of Plans  will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is so well written. Stylo has an amazing talent of bringing her stories to life.  The book gets going right from the start and doesn't stop. It's inventive, fun, funny, unpredictable, and exhilarating. The only thing wrong with it is that it ends.  We also have a few new   characters added to the mix.  One is a particular  drug lord that I think I have developed a small crush on.  


After months of Laws training Lily is ready to finish what she started. What she doesn't expect is to run into Marc.  Sparks fly, tempers sore, but the connection these two have is undeniable.

I am hoping for more on Kingsley soon.  He really stepped up to the plate for Lily.  We get  a few bits and pieces of  his background  that leaves you craving more of the sexy suit wearing, chain smoking beast and it sure makes you want more.

The Mercenaries Series is a must read..   I Highly Recommend..

AboutTheAuthor

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ..., forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Synopsis Logo

Get ready, it's going to be one hell of a ride
They were the new ‘It’ guys. Sought after and wanted. But it was him, he was their king, a dark angel, mysterious and oh, so deliciously bad.
He grew up on the streets of Brooklyn in a time of extravagance and possibilities, a little rough around the edges with a hint of arrogance and seduction. A promise to a friend leads them down a rollercoaster ride filled with danger and suspense, from the discos, to the streets of Harlem and drug lords in Mexico. Until it all collapses. Just when he’d found the one woman who could save him from himself, and the beast inside him.
We all have that first true love, the one we never forget, the one that makes our heart hurt, even today. This is their story. It spans decades. This is his story…. All wrapped up in the decadence of the ‘80’s: Sex (lots of it). Drugs (almost as much). Discos (where it all happened). How it all crashed in the 90’s. And today, how it found her once again…

Amazon

"This book hooked me in right from the start". .. 5 Stats is not enough. 

The Author has done a wonderful job entwining the many characters of this story, creating a beautifully written masterpiece. While the story main focus is on Michael and Natalie and the struggles and heartache they have faced together and alone. We also get a look at the charm, charisma, and yes the dragon's of the men who make up The Rooster Club. It shows true struggles that people fight with in every day which made this story seem more real. It's really easy to read and follow along with. The story transitions smoothly from present to past. I felt myself being stuck into the story just from reading the Introduction alone. There is just something that completely fascinates me about these people and their lives. It is so different than anything I have ever read.


N.M Catalano has truly outdone herself. I loved every minute of it. 
I am completely blown away.

Megan Fields Bio

  Hmmmmm a bio... What to say? I live in the UK with my family, which comprises of 2 little monkeys (aka the kids) and the other half (aka the big kid). I've always read books and leaned towards the romance novels from my late teens, but it wasn't until I read books like The Crossfire Series and J Kenner's Stark Trilogy that I truly found the genre I liked ;-) Some of my fave authors are Sylvia Day, Jasinda Wilder, Kate Perry, Melissa Foster, K.F. Breene and Lucia Jordan to name but a few. There are definitely some upcoming authors that I have my eye on though, e.g. A.M. Willard, Louise Bay, AJ Summer, Victoria Ashley and A.M. Guilliams. I started writing my first book Lost & Found in September 2013, so it's been a year in the making, but I didn't seriously start dedicating time to it until the beginning of the year when I posted a thread on Good Reads asking for beta readers.

Publsihed: December 21, 2015
Published by: Crimson Romance
Kyle Davis doesn’t do Christmas – not after he lost his whole family in the Boxing Day Tsunami. His idea of celebrating the festive season is going to his Margaret River property where his only companion is what’s residing in his liquor cabinet. Finding winemaker, Jordan Hastings in his shower is the last thing he expects or needs. No matter how attractive she is or how his body responds to her, a relationship is not on his Christmas wish list.

After being betrayed by the man she thought loved her Jordan has taken over her father’s caretaker position at a Margaret River property. Trying to get her career on track by bringing the neglected vines on the property back to life becomes her only focus. When property owner Kyle turns up and demands she leaves she stands her ground and convinces him to let her continue her work on the vines. Falling for a man who controls her employment is something she has no plans on doing again. Only resisting Kyle proves impossible when she learns of the tragedy he has suffered.

Time spent together has each of them evaluating their goals and finding that taking another risk on living and loving could be the best Christmas gift after all.


Tangled Vines Excerpt © Nicole Flockton 2015

Jordan Hastings washed the shampoo out of her hair while listing all the things she needed to do that day. There was nothing more invigorating than getting up as the sun rose out of the sky to begin a brand new day.
She needed to check and make sure the new shoots were growing straight, obtaining maximum sunshine on the budding fruit stock. She also needed to make sure there was no sign of mildew on the vines. After being neglected for so long, she wasn’t expecting much from this year’s harvest. With the grapes she did manage to grow and harvest, she hoped to experiment and come up with new blends, new flavors infused into the wines.
Jordan couldn’t wait for her dad to recover from his broken leg so he could help her when it came to harvesting the grapes. Good thing she happened to be visiting him when he had his accident. She tried not to think his fall was caused by hearing about her broken engagement. Or how her former fiancĂ© had won the Golden Wine award for “Most Innovative Wine” for the wine she’d created. She tried to convince herself none of those things was the reason her father lost his balance on the ladder, fell and broke his leg. But she couldn’t help but feel responsible.
Jordan forcefully shut off the water. She wasn’t going to think about her loser ex. The only important male person in her life was her father, and she planned to keep it that way for a long time. She wasn’t going to be fooled by a handsome face again.
She shoved the shower curtain aside and screamed.
“Who the hell are you and what the hell are you doing in my house?”
“Who are you?” Jordan screeched back as she grabbed a towel and wrapped it around herself. But she didn’t need to ask the question. She knew the bare-chested man standing in front of her.
Kyle Davis in the flesh.
She never expected the first time she met him she would be standing naked in the shower. She hated surprises and her temporary boss standing in the bathroom was one hell of a surprise.
“I asked you first.” He crossed his arms over his impressively muscled chest and widened his stance.
Jordan bristled at his aggressiveness. It was either that or step forward and lay her head on his chest.
Stop it.
Could she be any more hormonal? He’d scared the crap out of her and she wanted to feel his arms around her? Was she asking for trouble? His good looks weren’t going to keep her from doing what she wanted. No man was going to stop her from pursuing her dreams anymore.
His annoyance she could deal with. If she was truthful, she supposed he had a reason for it. It was his house after all. But it wasn’t like she was trespassing. She’d cleared it with Shey to stay in the main house instead of her dad’s apartment for the time being. However, having a conversation while wearing a towel, with him looking like he wanted to explode wasn’t a priority on her current to-do list.
“What is this? High school?” she fired back, cringing at how juvenile she sounded. She couldn’t help it. The whole situation was making her uncomfortable.
He took a couple of steps toward her, blocking her exit route out of the bathroom.
“No, this is my house and instead of finding it empty, I find you.” Kyle leaned forward fractionally. Her hand reached behind her for the tiled wall to steady herself against the fire sparking out from his eyes. “So I ask again. Who are you? And what are you doing in my house?”
At least this time he asked his questions a bit more politely.
“Do you think we can have this conversation when I’m dressed?”
A small smile broke out on Kyle’s face as his eyes lazily roamed over her towel- clad form. “Now why would I do that? Seems to me this is the perfect time for a chat.”
Great, just remind the sexiest guy you’ve seen in a long time you’re naked. Way to go, Jordan.
Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.
