Natalia

My love life would be almost comical if it weren’t so depressing. Why can’t romance be like it is in the novels I love? I stupidly assume things can’t get any worse, but then I get fired from my job. Good one, universe. Now I have no choice but to work for my brother and his surly business partner, Anderson.

We can’t seem to get on the same page about anything. He’s judgmental and rude, and I can’t stand him. To make matters even more trying, he’s ridiculously hot.

Anderson

I never agreed to bring on a new marketing manager, and certainly not her. My business partner leads with his heart, and when he hires his sister, her ability to crawl under my skin is insurmountable.

So, why does she make my heart race every time she’s close? When things escalate, I lose all semblance of control, which just makes me angrier. I can’t keep my hands off her, even though she makes me crazy.

Hatred can drive a person insane, but so can love.

The Love at Work Series consists of interconnected standalones, all having to do with falling in love at work. They can be read in ANY order!

EXCERPT

I’m about to look into an up-and-coming mailing list service when Luca pops his head into my office.
“Are you on?” he hisses, pointing to his watch. I glance at my calendar.
“On what?”
His eyes widen. “The Zoom call with our Whole Foods rep. It should be on your calendar.”
I look at my schedule again. “I only have a call with Gena at two to discuss the magazine feature.”
He sighs. “Fuck. I probably forgot to add you. One second.”
He turns and leaves. I scour my emails, but I never got an invitation. Just as I’m about to get up, Anderson saunters in.
“I just sent you the link,” he says, pulling the chair from the corner and placing it next to mine. When he looks up at me, he shrugs. “Luca’s taking the meeting in his office. I figured you’d want company.”
“Sure, by all means, make yourself at home,” I mutter, clicking on the link he sent me. My screen pulls up the Zoom meeting, and I keep us on mute as I adjust the angle to show only our shoulders and faces. When I glance over at Anderson, he’s leaning back in his chair—my chair—looking down at some papers with a pen in his mouth.
Instinctively, I cross my legs under my desk as a man I’ve never met begins a presentation, sharing his screen. I keep my eyes focused on the slideshow, trying to pay attention to the numbers he’s explaining. After a minute, my eyes wander to the occupant in the seat to my right, but his eyes are narrowed in on the screen, ignoring me completely. I tamp down the blow to my ego—I’d worn my bright red skirt suit on purpose. I’m about to uncross my legs when Anderson’s hand lands on my knee, and I stiffen.
I glance at him again, and his expression gives nothing away. From our tiny square on the bottom left, it just looks as though we’re two colleagues sitting appropriately spaced apart in a nondescript office. No one could know he’s feeling me up under the desk. His jaw is hard, his eyes laser-focused on the screen, and he’s fidgeting with the pen with his free hand. He flicks his eyes to me for a second, and my office grows hot—so stiflingly hot. His eyelids are hooded, his pupils dark, as they narrow ever so slightly. As they convey exactly how he’s feeling. His hand moves up, underneath my skirt, and I clamp down on my tongue so that I don’t yelp out loud.
“Natalia actually has some interesting ideas for the logo,” Luca says, and my name coming from the speakers on my computer surprises me. I wasn’t expecting to be called out—and I sure as hell wasn’t expecting to be called out with Anderson’s hand up my skirt. Thank god it’s just a Zoom. His warm, calloused hand slides up even farther, making contact with the lace of my panties. He brushes against my slit once, and I nearly gasp as I unmute us.
“I—um—yes,” I mutter, clearing my throat. I pray to whatever gods exist that my skin isn’t blotchy right now—that my cheeks are a normal color. “In doing some market research, I’ve discovered that logos for health food companies are always nearly—um—” I breathe, shaking my head and clearing my throat, uncrossing my legs as one of Anderson’s fingers slides underneath the fabric of my underwear. “Sorry. Where was I?”
“Logos for health food companies are always nearly…” Luca finishes. His expression in the little square is one of impatience.
I swallow. Whole Foods is our biggest client. I can’t fuck this up. Not after everything Luca has done for me. I grind my teeth and steel my resolve, ignoring the way Anderson’s finger uses my own wetness as lube, sliding his thumb against my clit. I can’t think straight, and I’m sure as hell not about to push his hand away. I’ve never been so turned on.
“Right. Logos for these companies are almost always green in color, modern-looking, with wholesome graphics,” I add, clearing my throat as Anderson quickens his pace. I shake the hair off my shoulders and arch my back slightly, parting my legs. It’s so fucking hot in here that I might faint. Electric currents run from my core down every limb, and I resist the urge to move against him. “Gather’s logo is great, but eventually, I think we should tweak it.”
The man on the screen—Kelvin—cocks his head. “I like the idea of a wholesome element. It would fit in better with our branding.”
I nod, breathing heavily now. I hope no one notices the way my nostrils are flaring, the way my eyes flutter slightly as Anderson works the bundle of nerves at my opening.
“Right,” I add, nodding. “The logo we have now is fine, but if we are really trying to break out into the restaurant industry, we should probably find something that looks good on the outside of any dining area, that represents exactly what Gather—” I gasp as Anderson inserts two fingers, involuntarily spreading my legs as wide as they’ll go. I cover it with a cough. “As I was saying, we want to find a logo that represents everything Gather stands for. And since we started with juice, and that’s the current logo, I think we should be thinking more organically.”
“Like a leaf?” Anderson asks, his fingers curling and thrusting into me, delicious and slow.
I turn to face him, knowing he’ll see everything written on it—everything he’s doing to me—in a Zoom full of people. The fucking prick. He’s taunting me—again.
I nod, trying to keep my body from shaking as he inserts a third finger.
Oh, fuck.

Genre: Military Romantic Suspense

BLURB

She doesn’t know who she is… or why someone’s trying to kill her.

When hardened mercenary Jared Fraser finds a woman bleeding in the snow outside his remote cabin, he takes her in and patches her up, intending to get her back to her life and out of his as quickly as possible.

But Liberty King is a special case. She shows signs of recent abuse, and she can’t remember who she is – the only hint is a necklace with a name engraved on it.

When three men track her down with hunting dogs, Jared will do whatever it takes to protect her. Then he’ll move mountains to find out what’s locked away inside her head. What he won’t do is fall for her, no matter how much her innocent eyes and sweet smile make him want more.

But when a new danger strikes, Jared realizes that some choices were never his to make…

She needs a knight in shining armor. He is one.

EXCERPT

“What’s wrong, Jared?”

He was utterly still, a look of concentration on his face. “I need you to get your shoes on. Put on the socks I gave you first. Put your jacket on, too.”

Libby’s heart raced as fear spiked. Jared strode into the bedroom he’d claimed for his own, returning with a sweatshirt that he threw at her. “Put this on over the jacket.”

He dropped a bag on the floor and unzipped it. A moment later he was yanking guns from the interior, shoving magazines into the weapons, and dropping them beside him like his own mini-arsenal. In the distance, the braying dog was joined by another one. And was that a snowmobile?

She didn’t know what was going on, but she did as Jared told her, fear a hard knot in her belly. She dragged the sweatshirt over her head, clawed it down until it draped over her hips. That was when she noticed Jared removing an assault rifle from a case.

It was wicked looking, with a long scope and a tripod that he could unfold to prop it up. The barrel had a lot of holes in it. He glanced at her, his expression grim.

“What’s going on?” she whispered, her throat too tight to speak properly.

“I don’t know, but I mean to find out.” He inserted a huge magazine into the weapon until it snapped into place with an audible click. Then he slung it around his body until it was across his back before bending to pick up the other weapons. Somehow he put several of them on his person. “Do you know how to shoot?”

Libby swallowed. “I-I don’t know.”

He took one of the weapons, dropped the magazine, and held it up. “Pull the top of the gun back toward you. Like this,” he said. He pulled and released a couple of times, then aimed at a kitchen cabinet before pulling the trigger. The gun clicked.

“Your turn.” He handed it to her. It was difficult to pull at first because the top of the gun was tight, but he showed her how to hold it so she could put more muscle behind it. When she had that trick down, she repeated the motions he’d shown her.

Jared nodded. “You just cleared the weapon and dry-fired it. Now you put this magazine in and pull back the slide when you want to fire. Release it and you’ve loaded the chamber. Then point and fire.”

He handed her the loaded magazine and she pushed it into the grip with shaking hands until it clicked.

“Don’t point it at anything you don’t intend to kill. And don’t do it unless you have no other choice.”

She felt like her eyes were huge. “What does that mean exactly?”

“It means that if anything happens and we’re separated, you use that on anyone who tries to hurt you.”

The dogs and snowmobiles were growing louder. She was cold, but sweat popped up between her breasts anyway. “Who’s going to hurt me?”

“Maybe no one. But I prefer to be prepared.”

Libby sucked in a breath. “I’m scared.” Maybe she shouldn’t admit it, but it was too huge a thing to ignore. She didn’t know who she was, other than a name and occupation, but she was pretty sure she didn’t encounter dangerous situations very often. She wasn’t a warrior.

Jared wrapped an arm around her and tugged her against his side. It was unexpected, but welcome. When he dropped a kiss on her forehead, she couldn’t help the shiver of delight that tripped down her spine.

Stupid time to be pleased, Libby.

“I know,” he said softly. “But this is what I do. It’s like winning the lottery, Libby. You happened upon the right guy at the right time. There’s a lot in this world I can’t do, but this is something I’m trained for and highly skilled at. No one’s getting to you without going through me. And that’s not an easy thing to do, I promise you.”

Grace

It doesn’t have to be a best seller.
It doesn’t have to be something no one has ever read!
So why am I making this so damn difficult?

I need to focus.
To push past the writer’s block, the fear, the taunting rejection that they’ll all think this new book of mine sucks a big dick!

Am I allowed to say that?
Screw it, because I just did, and it totally does, at least in my mind.

I don’t need distractions!
Especially mouth-watering, panty-dropping, dirty talking, self-gratifying distractions.
Distractions that cause my breath to catch, my thighs to clench, my center to quickly dampen, and my brain to scream only two self-gratifying words.

Yes fucking please!

OK, that was three!

Never mind the fact that he’s my new boss.
Forget the idea that he corners me into a fake engagement – the first day we meet!
Ignore the obvious evidence that I can’t, for the life of me, stay away from Brettly Beckett!
And what’s more, I don’t want to!
And he doesn’t make it easy!
No, my lucky readers, he’s not backing down without putting in some very hard-to-resist, self-pleasure seeking efforts.

Gifting me with the nickname Peaches, he makes it known he’s dead set on claiming my peach the first chance he gets, and the sooner the better.

But I quickly learn that’s a development that could prove too self-destructive if we let it.
After all, it’s like they say, not everything in life can be as sweet as a peach.

“What’s your real name?”
“Wouldn’t you like to know!”
“Watch it, or…”
“Well, it damn sure ain’t Peaches!”
His grin finally grows as he leans back against the desk in front of me and crosses one leg over the other at the ankles.
“I think I liked you better when I thought you were sweet.”
“That’s a shame,” I taunt. “Hasn’t anyone ever told you, Mr Beckett,” I hiss, enunciating every single syllable I can in his last name. “The only way to ever really enjoy anything sweet in life, is to first indulge in the sour.”
“Hmmm,” he sighs, as he bites his bottom lip and dangerously devours me with his eyes across the room. My lower stomach flips as my breathing quickens.
Oh hell, stop acting like a preteen that’s never been touched before, Grace!
His arms are still crossed over his chest, feet still crossed at the ankles as he leisurely rests against the top of the desk, and God help me, I’ve never seen anything more beautiful.
He’s beautiful!
From the top of his breathtaking egotistical head to the tips of his expensive Italian leather loafers.
Sigh. I hate him!
“Sweet yet perfectly tangy is my favorite combination, Peaches,” his voice rasps out as he wets his lips for emphasis and I feel my core simultaneously dampen in response. “But the matter here is business, not pleasure!”

Destiny Can’t Be Denied.

Some might call Bennett Brady a hero, but he was only doing his job. Fighting fires and rescuing people was dangerous, but that’s what he did and what he took pride in. He never failed to save the day, until the day he failed Marin Landry, and he failed her, huge. Her boyfriend died in a fire Ben was called to, and he was unable to save him; his unit arrived too late to make a difference. His head reasoned that there wasn’t anything anyone could have done differently; the place lit up like a Roman candle.

Marin was lucky to be alive, but the loss left her broken, and something deep inside Ben yearned to save her. He wanted to take her pain away, to know her, to get closer; but she was too damaged. She was beautiful, sure, but this was much more than mere attraction.

From the moment he laid eyes on the injured young woman in the back of that ambulance, his fate was sealed. Her soul called out to his; her tear-filled eyes and the ache in her voice said she needed him, and he was moved to the core. This would not be a casual fling and that was the last thing Ben wanted it to be.

As he peeled back the layers and discovered the ugly truth, he wondered why Marin couldn’t seem to leave her past behind and embrace the new and better life he so desperately wanted to give her. A terrible tragedy may have thrown them together, but Ben is unable to walk away from Marin; even when she begs him to.

Whatever it takes, he won’t rest until convinces her she belongs in his arms. Forever.

“I want you more than any woman I’ve ever seen, but more than that… I want to take care of you.” The words dragged out of him. “When I walked into that hallway and saw you with Apollo, I saw red. I didn’t even know if it was him for sure, and it didn’t matter. I wanted to fucking kill him. I know it’s too soon to expect that you’d—”
The sound of his voice was like magic and I felt myself giving in, my body was craving his and my heart began to race. It wasn’t as if I hadn’t wanted him, too. It wasn’t as if I didn’t lie in bed at night fantasizing about him. I knew he was too weak to make love, but maybe…
“Ben,” I sighed, my chin lifting in silent beckoning for him to put me out of my misery and kiss me. Somehow, I ended up in his arms and my hands rested against the sides of his waist. The bandage reminded me of his wound, but Ben didn’t seem to notice.
He hauled me closer in the dim light, turning me around until my back was up against the wall in the hallway; his hard body pressing blissfully into mine leaving no doubt to his desire, as his mouth hovered over mine. God, it was blissful torture. “I’m sorry. I can’t help… this.”
“Ben,” I whispered again, my voice aching. My lower lip nudged his upper one, eliciting a guttural groan from deep in his chest.
His hand flattened on the wall beside my head, and he lifted me enough to part my legs and press his hips hard into the cradle of mine. It was bliss.

EXCERPT

“What do you think you’re doing?”
I swallow against a dry mouth. “Leo, I should go.”
“The fuck you should. What are you talking about?”
“I know it seems bad.” My words tumble out on top of one another, and once again, I’m the girl with her back against the wall, facing off with the Beast of Bishop’s Landing. Only now I know he can be hurt. He can be wounded. “It is bad. But I have to talk to Aunt Caroline. I have to try and make her see reason.”
Leo stares at me like I’m a stranger. Like he’s never seen me before. Like I didn’t hold him in my arms and beg for him to live. “There’s no talking to that bitch.”
Tears well up in my eyes. Damn it. I wasn’t going to cry, but it’s all so close to the surface. “I know it was Caroline who hurt you. She’s the one who made those scars on your back.” I gulp down a sob and stifle it. Suffocate it. I’m not doing that. I won’t. “You told me yourself that you almost died. And now she tried to kill you again.”
The horror in Leo’s eyes transforms. It sharpens until it could cut me and bursts into flame. He stalks toward me and the hairs on the back of my neck rise. My body stills. There are three options in the face of a deadly predator. Flee. Fight. Freeze. I couldn’t run for the door if I wanted to. I don’t know how I ever did it before.
Leo stops with inches to spare. I’m not afraid of him, I’m not, but I’m trembling under my pink coat. Okay. I am afraid. But not of him. Not only of him. Of the way I feel right now, shaky and lightheaded and on the verge of tears from a love that feels completely out of control.
He waits, and I stand there like a fool, staring at the front of his shirt. There is a bandage underneath. A bullet wound. From putting his own body between me and a gun. A tear slips down my cheek and falls to the carpet. I’m too hot in the coat, too hot standing this close to him. Now that there’s a closed door between us and the rest of the world, I’m torn between bravery and the urge to fall apart and let him catch me.
My own fallen angel takes my chin in his hand and tips my face up, his grip hard and possessive. “Look at me.”
“I am looking at you.”
But I’m not. My eyes are still caught on his shirt—on the fabric concealing where he was shot. Leo gives my chin a terse shake. “Okay,” I whisper, meeting his eyes. Gold-streaked darkness waits for me, clear as the night sky. His gaze is sharp as a shot. Pain glimmers there, hidden behind the fiery beauty of those eyes. It’s not concealed behind a haze of painkillers. My pulse races at the contact. The heat of his fingers on my face is second only to the burn where his eyes meet mine.
“You,” he says, his tone deliberate, “are not going anywhere.”

BLURB

Three years ago my life was turned upside down. I felt like I was left barely breathing.
But four months ago, everything changed.

Radley Cooper walked into my life
and taught me how to breathe again.
She had scars of her own, bruises that I was determined would fade away if I just loved her enough.

But all it took was a moment.
Secrets unraveled, our bits of broken that we thought we could survive, wedged their way in between us and refused to stay hidden.

We were stronger than any secret.
Radley was my fate, permanently imprinted on my soul. There wasn’t a length she could run that I wasn’t willing to travel to bring her back to me. There was no way I’d do anything less than fight for her.

Trigger Warning: Please be warned,
this duet includes scenes of sexual assault
and sensitive subject matter.

TRAILER

EXCERPT

“… Violet, all I see when I look at you is light. You blind me with all those pieces that you think are battered, broken and useless. You’re not useless or unwanted, Radley. I know you use your words as weapons, and I know you try to push me away because you’re afraid I’ll eventually give up on you. I can see past it all, Violet. Hurt recognizes hurt.” ⠀

“You’re hurt?” she asked with beautiful curiosity. ⠀

“Yeah, Violet, I’m hurt. But aren’t we all?”
I want all your hurt. “Tell me a truth, Radley. Tell me something that’s all yours.”

I knew it was pushing it, but I could see a part of her that wanted to let something go, she just didn’t know how. ⠀

“So much was stolen from me, Meekai. I could never tell you to your face what that was, but just let me get away with that being enough. Can you do that?”

I reached out for her hand and drew lazy slow circles across the top of her soft skin. I smiled with nothing less than an I’d say yes to anything that helped make you feel safe.

“Yeah, Violet, I can do that. I want you to know something, though.” ⠀

She raised a brow that asked me what that could possibly be. What did I want her to know? ⠀

“You’re enough, Boo Radley Cooper. You’re enough.”

AUTHOR BIO

Annie Emerson is an Australian author who started writing poetry at the age of fourteen. Poetry turned into lyrics, lyrics turned into music, and music crossed over into novels. The words became too big to contain, and she finally gave into her biggest dream to become a professional writer.

Thirteen Hours To You is Annie’s debut novel and book one in the ‘Sometimes Goodbye is a Second Chance Duet.’

Annie writes with a poetic lilt, and loves to create characters that are relatable, perfectly imperfect, and a little bit lost. She only believes in writing happily ever afters, because real life doesn’t write enough of its own. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be less than a whole lot bumpy as the characters she writes find their way.

Jamie

Jake White is our king.

A king with a crown of thorns, a heart of stone, and evil in his soul. He hides it well though, under a beautiful smile and eyes that ravage your heart.
But Stoneview Prep’s golden boy has always had a dark aura around him. Like a well-guarded secret. A blackness that he never lets anyone see.

“Curiosity killed the cat, Jamie.” My mom always tells me.

She never said it would get me in more trouble than I could handle. She never said it would throw me into the dark world of Jake White. And when I not-so-accidentally find out part of Jake’s past, I finally learn the consequences of mischievous nosiness.

Curiosity doesn’t kill this cat. It turns it into a mouse to be played with.

At least that’s what Jake decided.

Jake

Three years. That’s how much my twin and I got of freedom before our past caught up with us.

We were doing well, we were being good, we were keeping out of trouble. Most of all, I was in control.
But trouble always finds a reason to make its way back to us. And when it does, Jamie Williams is here to witness it.
In the morning I learned of her existence, in the afternoon she was spying on me like a fangirl.

This girl is desperate to find out what’s behind the golden boy’s facade I was kind enough to put on.

So be it.

I have time on my hands, darkness on my mind, and a hundred ways to make Jamie Williams bend to my will.
