About FIGHTING FOR YOU

Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he's working on changing the last one. There's more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces' and nephews' favorite uncle.

The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach's gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team's new sponsorship manager, keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible.

Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn't hired due to her personal connections. She's determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn't the place to make friends.

But a certain smoking hot--and bossy--soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable.
For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can't have. But Jace doesn't let that deter him. He's determined to fight for her. And he will.

Blurb

Snagging a date? Not a problem. But one that meets my special requirements?

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos,” she needs to be A-Plus in reliability. Fortunately, I have a brilliant solution in asking my best friend’s sister to go on my arm. Truly is my good friend, too, and I trust her completely.

Just look how discreet she’s been about the time we spent the night together. But, it was only once, and it was months ago. We’ve been the souls of restraint ever since. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo. Probably.

Plus, she needs my help with a business proposal. A little I’ll-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine doesn’t have to lead to the bedroom, right?

Good thing we know our way around the friend zone. The treacherous, torturous all-too-easy to slide out of friend zone…


Instant Gratification is told from the hero's POV, so if you loved Big Rock, Mister O, or Full Package, you’ll devour this new standalone rom-com!

Author: Shannyn Schroeder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: O’Leary’s, Book 6

About Hold Me Close

Taming a spirited, fun-loving O'Leary may be harder than he realized...    

After more than a year in Ireland, Maggie O'Leary is finally coming back to Chicago with a plan for her future. Confronting the tragedy that destroyed her is her first step. But to do that, she needs to work in her family's bar--something her family doesn't want. Luckily, her best friend, Shane Callahan, is her biggest support--and lovable in a way she doesn’t remember. 

Determined to protect Maggie, Shane refuses to leave the bar when she's working late. And when Maggie boldly tells him that she wants him to help her conquer her final fear—sex—Shane knows a single night together won't be possible. The idea of a spirited Maggie in his bed is everything, but will she believe he wants her heart too?

Excerpt

Maggie didn’t say anything, but her eyes widened. This was it, the moment he’d wanted for a long time. His fingers wrapped around the back of her neck and her pulse throbbed against his palm. Only her rapid heartbeat let him know she wanted this, because the rest of her was stock-still. Her eyes told him she wasn’t afraid.

“Relax,” he whispered against her lips.

And she did. She closed her eyes and her lips softened. He brushed against them, her breath quickening. He tried to follow his own advice, but there was no turning back now. This was no friendly kiss meant to comfort. This one conveyed his lust.  He’d wanted this for so long, he almost couldn’t control himself.

She was everything he imagined. Soft and warm, gentle and open.

His heart crashed against his ribs and his blood thundered through his system, urging for more. But this was Maggie, his friend and soon-to-be-lover. She deserved better, so he kept the kiss soft and slow, as slow as he could bear.

*****

This was it. Shane Callahan was kissing her and oh my freaking God was it good. A giggle bubbled up but was squashed by how good the kiss was. She tried to focus to remember what it was like to be kissed like this, but she couldn’t concentrate.  His tongue ran along her lip and eased into her mouth. Shane was gentle and slow, but he controlled every move, every shift, every second of pleasure.

She grabbed his shirt and held on, needing to pull him closer, to feel his body touching hers. She felt the tingle of excitement and wanted to hold that feeling. Shane deepened the kiss, his tongue swirling around hers. While his hands stayed near her face, touching her jaw, her neck, her hair, hers roamed down his chest.

Time ceased to exist. The only air was the breath they shared.

By the time he pulled away, she was pliant and beyond relaxed, yet her nerves still thrummed with excitement. Maggie opened her eyes.

Shane’s thumb stroked her cheek. “You okay?”

“More than.” She leaned forward, wanting more.

Shane took the hint and shifted closer, angling his head and capturing her mouth again. Part of her wanted to feel silly. This was Shane, her buddy. She never knew he could do this. She imagined an awkward fumbling between them. Not this kind of simple magic.

Her heart raced and then her blood weighed heavy in her veins as lust took over. His fingers threaded into her hair and pushed it aside. His lips left hers and he kissed a trail across her jaw to her ear and down her neck. His hands finally—finally!—began to move over her body. He skimmed down her sides, barely brushing the sides of her boobs.

She gripped his head as he continued to lick and suck at her neck, his hands spanning her rib cage before they moved up and pressed against her breasts. Her nipples were hard points, sticking out, begging for attention. Using his whole hand, Shane kneaded one breast and then the other while he returned to her mouth just in time to swallow a moan.

Her entire body hummed and thrummed. If she had never vibrated with need before, she knew exactly what it meant at this moment. She tugged at his T-shirt and pulled it up to reveal his tight muscles and line of hair leading below his waistband. Desire pooled low in her belly and she welcomed it.

She trusted Shane to make this happen. She shoved at his pants, barely getting past his hipbones before he shot away from her.

“Whoa. Slow down, there.”

“What? No!” She reached for him, but he pulled his hips away.

He grabbed her hands and held them. “Maggie.” His voice was strangled. Inhaling deeply, he leaned his forehead against hers. “Slow, Mags. I’m not stripping you on the couch.”

“We can go to my bed. It’s not that far.” The bulge in his pants made her mouth water.

He sighed, then kissed her cheek. “Good night, Maggie.”

He stood.

Wait. What? He was walking away? She jumped off the couch to follow him. “Shane Callahan.” He looked over his shoulder. “Get your butt back over here and finish what you started.”

Cover Reveal for The Bratva’s Bride by Jane Henry








Bratva life is simple:



You steal from the brotherhood, you pay with your life.

But the thief is a woman, and she’s too beautiful to die.




My wedding band will be her collar.

Our vows will be her shackles.




She will be my captive bride.

USA Today Bestselling author Jane has been writing since her early teens, dabbling in short stories and poetry. When she married and began having children, her pen was laid to rest for several years, until the National Novel Writing Challenge (NaNoWriMo) in 2010 awakened in her the desire to write again. That year, she wrote her first novel, and has been writing ever since. With a houseful of children, she finds time to write in the early hours of the morning, squirreled away with a laptop, blanket, and cup of hot coffee. Years ago, she heard the wise advice, “Write the book you want to read,” and has taken it to heart. She sincerely hopes you also enjoy the books she likes to read.
