EXCLUSIVE

(15 YEARS OLD)  
“Do you ever think about kissing me, Dane James?”
I asked the question impulsively, and the instant the words were out, I could’ve just crawled into a hole to die. I was the stepdaughter of one of the wealthiest and most influential men in town, I was friend to all the most popular people in school, yet I felt as insecure as I’d ever been a day in my life. And all because I was asking a worker’s son if he ever thought about kissing me.
Maybe it was because I knew he was better than me.
He was better than all of us.
His answer was soft, but it hit me hard. “All the time.”
“Then where have you been these last three years?”
“Right here.  Where I’ve always been. Where I always will be.”
“Always will be? I thought you had dreams bigger than this town.”
“They’re just dreams, Brinkley. Reality is a whole different story.”
“You could leave, you know.  When you graduate high school.”
“I could,” he agreed noncommittally.
“But you won’t.”  
He shrugged again. This time that shrug made me feel sad.  “I can try.”
“Dane,” I said and then stopped.
I didn’t have anything to say.  At least nothing that I was brave enough to say.  I had no more questions that had pat answers, no more observations that I could make.  I had nothing but the desire that danced through my veins.  
I wanted him to look at me.  And I wanted to look at him. Just for a little while.
When I didn’t continue, Dane James turned to face me, his autumn eyes flashing onyx in the dark.  At night they were different. He was different.  We were different.  And so was the world.
“If we do this, it won’t change anything.” Rational, mature words from a rational, mature guy.  
I knew it.
He knew it.  
But it still made my chest ache to acknowledge it.
I nodded.  “I know.  So why did you come to my window?”
His chin rested on his deltoid, his eyes still glued to mine. “I couldn’t not come.”

    COMING SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 





Dane James worked my stepfather’s fields. He was the boy next door.  


Strong.  
Hardworking.  
Forbidden.


From the moment we met, we were star-crossed lovers—always wanting, never having. We loved each other for most of our lives, but right from the beginning destiny had other plans.  She knew we would fall in love.  She knew we would fall apart.  Over and over again, like the curse of a recurring nightmare.  Or the hope of a familiar dream.   


Our past was tumultuous.  Our future was bleak.  But the one thing we always had was the beautiful now.

Until that was taken from us, too.


Bio:  New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a rarely ever comfortable speaking about herself in the third person, but here goes. Michelle is a former nurse who has always harbored a passion for the written word, a weakness for alpha males, and a profound love of all things romantic. Never in her wildest dreams did this Yankee-turned-Southerner imagine her life as it is today. She has the best job in the world, a husband who treats her like a princess, and a dog that's so smart she may one day write a novel, too. You can often find Michelle hidden away in her cave, crafting a new story, or out in the sunshine enjoying some quiet time with her man. Movies, wine, and good food are frequently thrown into the mix, and exercise on days that start with Q. She loves laughter, chocolate, the color red, and you can find out more about her at www.mleightonbooks.com.

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Publishing Date: September 29th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

Blood doesn’t make you family, loyalty does.  

Marcel “Teller” Whelan, Treasurer of the Lost Kings MC, has always been two things—honest and responsible. At ten years old, he was already taking care of his baby sister. At eighteen, he patched into the Lost Kings MC and took a major role in shaping the club’s future.  

Three years ago, he thought he’d met the perfect woman, only to have her reject everything he is—a Lost King.  

One bullet is a lifetime supply.  

Now, after an accident that left a girl dead and Teller almost crippled, he’s struggling through the darkest time in his life. His niece, sister, and Lost Kings MC family are the only things holding him together, but his reckless actions are bound to drive everyone away.  

Then, in the most unlikely place, he crosses paths with her again. The woman he once thought might be his perfect match.  

Love soothes our inner demons.

  Sparks fly for both of them. She’s the ride-or-die woman he needs, able to calm his many demons, and bring the light back into his life. But she has a secret—one that forces him to lie to his brothers.  

In chaos we trust.  

When Teller’s brothers find out who he’s falling in love with, it will create a storm of chaos for the Lost Kings MC. But if there’s one thing Teller’s turbulent life has taught him, it’s that sometimes love is worth the chaos.  

Beyond Reckless is the 8th book in the popular Lost Kings MC series. It can be read as a standalone.
