Ready the Pickles, Keane Morgan is finally here!

Meet Keane in this STANDALONE romantic comedy!
(No Prior reading required)



Keane Morgan wouldn’t return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn’t want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin’ choice in the matter--at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax’s coveted parking spot at UCLA.

Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated. And, honestly, what kind of guy uses the phrase “baby doll” with a straight face? Oh, that’s right: the kind of guy who’s a male stripper.

Yup, the cocky jerk turned out to be Seattle’s answer to Magic Mike, a stripper known as “Ball Peen Hammer”--which meant Keane Morgan was emphatically not the kind of guy I’d ever fall for.

Not. At. All.

No freakin’ way.

Well, until Keane convinced me to fall for him, that is.

Which I did.


As they exchange information, I make my way to the end of my aisle and loop into theirs, not taking my eyes off Baby Face the whole time. Shit. This dude’s hunting Maddy so hard, it’s making my blood boil. Jesus, he’s going full-throttle rifle on Maddy’s ass right now, completely foregoing his crossbow altogether.
When I reach the two of them in the middle of their aisle, I shuffle past the dude and stand next to Maddy, shoulder to shoulder, and then, on a sudden impulse, put my arm around her shoulders and squeeze her tight, making her wobble in place at the unexpected jolt to her balance. “Hey, sis,” I say, squeezing her like a rag doll. “You totally fell down on your candy-acquiring duties.”
“I know. I’m sorry.” She subtly wiggles out of my grasp. “Brian and I got into this hilarious argument about the best candy bar of all- time, and—”
“And I’m totally right,” Brian says, cutting her off, and they both chuckle at some inside joke.
“No, I’m totally right,” Maddy corrects.
Brian smiles at her. “I’ll actually be down in L.A. in a month. How ’bout I call you then?”
“Nice to meet you, man,” Brian says, looking at me. He nods but doesn’t put out his hand.
I nod back.
Brian strolls away, buys a Snickers bar and a can of Red Bull, and leaves with a little wave to Maddy.
The minute he’s out the door, Maddy takes a giant step away from me, her face etched with annoyance. “What was that?” she asks.
“That weird thing you just did?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Maddy puts on an exaggerated scowl, like she’s Hulk Hogan eying an opponent. “’Hey, Brian,’” she says in a low voice, clearly intending to imitate me but sounding more like Arnold Schwarzenegger imitating Maddy imitating me. “’I’m Maddy Milliken’s bodyguard and I’m going to beat you the hell up now,’” she adds.
“What are you talking about?” I say, chuckling.
Maddy pauses, assessing me, and finally shrugs. “Nothing. I guess I imagined it.”
“Imaged what?”
“Your weird... I dunno... vibe.”
“Oh, well, yeah. I was worried about you.”
“Worried about me? I was standing in a minimart, buying candy. Pretty low-risk activity, I’d say.”
“Uh, you absolutely were not standing in a minimart, buying candy—you totally fell down on that job, dude. You were standing in a minimart, getting picked up by a douche. And second of all—”
Shit. What the fuck am I doing? I’ve got to stop this shit right now. “Don’t get riled up, baby doll,” I say in my most soothing voice. “All I’m saying is you took so damned long in here, I started thinking maybe the store was getting robbed or you’d fallen into the toilet or something.”
Maddy twists her mouth. “Brian didn’t seem the least bit douchey to me.”
I shrug.“What gave you the impression he’s a douche?”
“Just a figure of speech. So are you gonna do the job I hired you to do or not?” I motion to the candy rack. “‘Cause based on your performance thus far, you’re totally fired.”
“And I wasn’t getting ‘picked up,’” Maddy says, her tone full of indignation. “Brian’s brother goes to UCLA. Can’t I talk to a helpful, nice guy without it being some sort of a sleazy pick-up?”
“Sure you can. However, in this instance, you were talking to a helpful, nice guy who was picking you up so he can bone the living fuck outta ya.”
Keane.” Maddy’s cheeks burst with color. “Don’t say that. Oh my god. You’re insane. Brian was just being helpful, that’s all.”
“Yeah, so he can bone the living fuck outta ya.”
“Stop saying that. Please. It’s offensive and absolutely not true. This topic of conversation is officially over.”

I see now that I was late to the bandwagon on the Lauren Rowe train. This book left me speechless, the characters, banter, and the all around dialogue will leave you laughing out loud throughout the entire book. Mattie is the kind of heroine that every women is tired of being, you know the one who is always classified as a friend and treated as one of the guys. What I found totally adorbs about her is that she comes off sweet an caring but rile her up and the sassy spitfire that she truly is is unleashed. Keane "Peenie" Morgan is Ball Peen Hammer stripper extraordinaire who believes that that there isn't a woman around that he can't have. Doing a favor for his brother leads to Mattie and Keane on a road trip where conflicting emotions and chemistry that won't quit come into play. I love a romance where friends become lovers and it develops into a love of a lifetime. I'm definitely a fan Lauren Rowe and can't wait to see where she takes me next.

But after all this time, can a guy from the wrong side of the tracks find his forever with the sweet and sexy polka-dot-pantied girl next door?

The final book in The Sentinel Demon series by New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author J.S. Scott.

Please NOTE: The Sentinel Demon books don't stand alone well. Although each Sentinel gets a HEA in their book, there is so much of the overlying story arch that would be missed if you haven't read the other three books.

Kristoff Agares, King of the Sentinels, is trapped in the realm of the Evils, so close to death. unstable and powerless from the demon's physical and mental torture that he's barely hanging onto his sanity.

Until he gets a telepathic message from a mystery woman who makes him want to survive, no matter what it takes.

After being rescued by an elite group of Sentinels, Kristoff can't ignore his powerful longing to claim his mate, who also happens to be his savior's voice in the demon realm. His chosen one was captured as a child, and had been a captive of the Evils for over two centuries, until the Sentinels set her free.

With the World in chaos, and the balance tipping almost irrevocably in the Evils favor, the last thing Kristoff thinks he needs is a radiant, a human female mate who will lighten his soul. Or so he thinks...

As Kristoff fights an internal battle, a war between his wants and what's good for his mate, he knows he has to make some difficult choices. Will he be able to tell his mate about his past? And if he does, will his radiant be willing to accept him after she learns the whole truth?

(July 29 - Aug 2nd)

 The first book In The Sentinel Demon Series, a paranormal romance by NY Times and USA Today bestselling author J.S. Scott.

27 year old Kat Larson is haunted by demons. Literally. And how was she to know that there was more than one type of demon? The Evils want to destroy her soul, while billionaire Sentinel demon, Zachary Winston, claims that he wants to protect her. Kat opts for Zach’s protection…but it doesn’t come without a price. It requires a demon bargain…and what he suggests surprises poor Kat almost as much as the fact that demons really do exist. Why would the handsome billionaire want to make such an agreement with a curvy, plain redheaded woman like her?

Billionaire Zachary Winston has a mission and it’s one that he vows to complete. As a Sentinel demon, his task is to protect Kat from the Evils that will corrupt her soul. His only problem is that she is his “radiant,” the one woman who can lighten the darkness of his demon existence and be his eternal mate. Zach has to fight an internal war between man and demon as he protects Kat, not quite sure which one will win. He’s one part demon, one part man, but they both yearn for Kat’s lush, full figured body and kind, compassionate heart. As Zach becomes more and more enchanted with Kat, he’s hoping she can learn to love a lonely man/demon that’s only slightly wicked.

This paranormal romance contains graphic language, steamy love scenes, and lovable alpha males that also happen to be mythological demons.

Title : Four : A Menage Erotic Romance
Author : S. C. Daiko 
Genre : Erotic Romance 

It's been a year since Max and I overcame our commitment fears and chased away our demons, a year in a blissful poly relationship with Steve. And now we’re all set to become four.
It should be the best time of my life, of our lives; trying for a baby with the two hot men who keep me warm at night. 
But when Steve’s friend James arrives from London, an over-the-top-theatrical scene player with his own agenda, and a whole lotta history just waiting to reignite, Steve suddenly doesn’t seem like the guy we fell in love with. He’s changing, morphing into a different man before our eyes.
I’m beginning to think the four Steve has in mind doesn’t necessarily include our baby.


Lauren Price is happy living with the two men she loves and life couldn’t be any sweeter. What started as just a little fun a year ago – a girl, two guys, and a whole lot of sex – has become a deep three-way love she hopes will last forever. 
They want to be a four – Max, Lauren, Steve and their unborn baby. That’s what they said, that’s what they planned. 
But life in love doesn’t follow the rules, and soon four doesn’t look quite like the three-plus-one Lauren intended it to be.


Although a sequel to “Three”, S. C. Daiko’s first Erotic Menage Romance, “Four” is a standalone story and, like its predecessor, contains vivid erotica and scenes involving MF, MFM, MMF, MM and some BDSM. All consensual. Most definitely 18+ only.

S. C. Daiko is an erotic romance author. When she isn’t bringing her fantasies alive on the page, she enjoys the sweet life of the Veneto in northern Italy – where she lives with her husband and two cats.

She writes historical fiction under the name Siobhan Daiko.

Cockpit final color boost

She's the one who got away. But I live for the chase…

I'm a thrill seeker. I fly the fastest jets in the world, and ride my motorcycle when I'm on the ground. The only thing that matters to me is speed. Why would I ever think about settling down? Jenny Reeds, that's why. One look in those hazel eyes and I found a thrill no dogfight could match. For one wild, unforgettable night, she was mine. I wanted to keep her close but she disappeared without even telling me her last name. I did my tour and flew combat missions in desert skies. But I never forgot her. Now they have me pushing papers and training new pilots. I thought I'd be bored to tears. Guess who I run into my first night back? It's her, my wild-eyed, fiery-haired beauty. Turns out she's the General's daughter. But that won't stop me. I'm persistent and it doesn't take too long before she's back in my arms. Only one problem. She's kept one hell of a secret from me. She had a baby while I was overseas. My baby. Now I want them both under my roof. Permanently. I've never failed a mission yet and I don't intend to start now. Cockpit is a standalone novel with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating. This edition includes bonus materials and will end before 100%!
I sat back and waited for her shift to end, enjoying the memory of the way her luscious body had melted against me. It was getting close to time when she asked me if I wanted anything else. I took my time, staring up and down her body. "Oh yeah honey, I can think of a lot of things." "I'm not a piece of meat, Jagger!" "No, you're definitely not a piece of meat. But you do look tender." She threw my check at me and turned tail to see to her other tables. I made my last beer count, sipping it slow as molasses until I was the last guy in the place. She started mopping up. She 'accidentally' mopped over my boots. I smiled and stood up, throwing a fifty dollar tip on the table. Her eyes widened. She stared at me as I walked out of the bar. 'Course I was waiting out front for her when she came out fifteen minutes later. She stared at me. I stared at her. Then she walked up to me and tossed that fifty dollar bill in my face. "I'm not for sale, you sonofabitch!" I looked right at her. She was angry. But she had mistaken my meaning. "I didn't say you were." "Then what are you doing tipping like that?" "I took up a seat in your section all night. Seemed fair." She stared at me belligerently. "Well, I'm not taking it." "How about a twenty?" "What are you, a cash machine?" She huffed, crossing her arms over her chest. Her glorious, perfect, mind bending chest. I pulled out a ten and a five. "Fifteen?" She yanked the money out of my hand so fast I got rug burn. Then she stomped off. The woman had a pair of legs on her. And she made good use of them. I was whistling as I followed her home.
