Cuffed by K. Bromberg

Ruth West - Wednesday, November 01, 2017

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Forget playing it safe.

John "Maverick" Nelson is the first member of the search-and-rescue team to ascend into danger, no matter the risk. Ice, avalanche, treacherous mountain paths? Bring it on.

But when it comes to women, he remains as untouchable as the North Ridge mountains. Every woman in British Columbia knows that the cocky, rugged sex god would rather fall down a crevasse than be tied to a woman.

And then he meets his new employee-- Riley Clarke.

His desire for her could scale the next peak, but he has to put the team ahead of his feelings. Of course, the adrenaline-soaked situations they're in lead to scorching hot sex in no time.
They need to keep their hands off each other, keep it professional. But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.

Ruth West - Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Bell Harbor is a one-million copy bestselling series.

If Sadie Turner is good at anything, it’s putting stuff in order. So when she finds her “perfect” life in disarray, she hopes a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house will help her piece it back together. She wants to relax, reboot, and heal the wounds left by her cheating ex-husband. And that requires time away from men. All men.

Or so she thinks.

With two slobbering dogs and two cousins living there—one a flamboyant decorator intent on making over Sadie—it’s hard to get a moment’s peace at eccentric Aunt Dody’s house, especially with everyone so determined to set her up with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor.

Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. Tall, tanned, muscular…and to top it off, he’s great with her kids. But he must have a flaw—he’s a man—so Sadie vows to keep her distance.

As summer blazes on, the life Sadie is trying so hard to simplify only becomes more complicated—a new career presents itself, her evil ex haunts her, and Aunt Dody reveals a tragic secret—but maybe a little chaos is just what Sadie needs to get her life back in order.

Dear Bridget I Want You by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

Ruth West - Thursday, September 21, 2017

From the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Dear Bridget,
I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I'm even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don't believe it's one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we're joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what's the purpose of this note? I guess it's a reminder that we're adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it's to let you know that I'm leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you'd like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don't.
Whatever you choose.
It's doubtful I'll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
--Simon

When Cougar Dates Manwhore by Jewel Quinlan

Ruth West - Monday, September 11, 2017

Meet Jewel Quinlan, author of When Cougar Dates Manwhore (The Cougar Journals Book 4). Today she goes in-depth about her first kiss, her most adventurous experience, how she handles negative reviews, and more! 


Do you have any hobbies?

Many! I love to explore life. Currently, I am still in possession of a pair of roller skates, which I break out once in a while. It’s the one childhood hobby I still haven’t let go of even at the ripe age of fourty-four. I am an advanced snow boarder and I also do yoga. In the past, I show-jumped horses for many years. Aside from reading and movies (of course) I also have been learning German for several years. I speak and read it at an advanced intermediate level now and I love it! A couple of summers ago, I also had some kite-boarding lessons, which were awesome! I’m hoping to get a few more lessons in before this summer is over and even purchase my own gear soon. Gosh, there’s so many possibilities. Life is great!


Tell us about your most adventurous experience.

I am one of those crazy people who often goes on vacation by themselves. The funny thing is that, when I do, I am never alone. I seem to meet the most interesting people right away and get invited to go along with them to do fun things. So now, I almost prefer to go on vacation by myself. LOL. It’s like telling the universe “bring me what I should have.” A few years ago, I decided to go on a week-long ski vacation in Austria (from Christmas to New Year’s). There at my hotel I got to know six other guests (most of them were traveling in pairs), and we had the greatest time skiing together, having dinner together, hanging out in the spa together. I am still friends with several of them to this day. We stay connected via Facebook and Whats App. And, while I was in Germany recently on another vacation I was able to meet up and have dinner with some of them. It’s times like these that make me feel that life really is magical and blessed.


What was your first kiss like?

It was pretty amazing. I’m not going to lie. One year, while I was in high school, my parents decided to host the son of one of my father’s French business associates for the summer. I was initially unhappy about having some stranger in the house at the time. Being that he was my age, I would no doubt get caught having to entertain him, I thought. And then … he arrived. And, oh man, was he gorgeous! Tall, with rich brown hair, green eyes, and a hot accent. Thankfully, he liked me, too. Needless to say, we shyly bonded that summer and experienced our first kiss together. Imagine that, my first French kiss from a real live French boy! I still remember the song that happened to be playing in the background, Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard. LOL. Oh well, not everything has to be perfect. Now, every time I hear that song I remember him and all the wonderful love letters he wrote me after he went back home. I don’t think my first kiss could have gone much better than that.


Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

I was born an introvert. This has been confirmed over the years as the industry I work in during the day likes to have us take personality quizzes. In fact, my latest boss just sent us another one to do. But, yes, I am an introvert and happy to be that way. What it really means to me is acknowledging where I get my energy from. Introverts need alone time. We need to sit with ourselves, tap into the mystic energy, and sort out life’s questions in silence away from the chatter of others. It also makes us well suited for jobs (like writing) where we spend a lot of time working independently on cerebral tasks. We can sit quite happily doing things on our own for a while. Not that we don’t like people. We do love others and can get lonely. But after we get caught up and have had some fun together, we need to go off on our own again.

I also have developed my extrovert side because I work a sales job during the day. But even though I am good at sales (introverts do a good job of listening and asking the right questions), having to go out and connect with various people every day has always felt like wearing a shoe that is one size too small. Even after ten years, it still feels that way because it’s not natural to me. But it has been good to learn to distinguish the difference because now I can tell for sure when I am functioning in my inherent strengths. When I write, I often slip into that zone where time and even the computer screen disappear from in front of me. I get caught up in the flow of creation. And when I finish, I feel fabulous!


How do you handle negative reviews?

I think negative reviews are a just a part of life. I have learned to accept that my books are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. And, even more importantly, I respect that readers have the right to hold whatever opinion they would like. Does it mean that every negative opinion is true or correct? Not necessarily. But they often hold seeds of constructive criticism that I find useful as an author. It’s just one of those life lessons that not everyone is going to like you, and I accept that. And, at the end of the day, I know that I give 100% effort to writing each and every story I put out, and my best is all I can do.
