Treasure by CJ Matthew

Sea Dragon shifter Liam Rudraige was up to his eyeballs managing Muirdris’s shipping business at the Port of Dublin, plus the Port of Cork expansion, and all the while dodging stalker salesmen.

Until the boss called…and Liam was forced to swim the fastest undersea route to the Druid’s magical island sanctuary.

NY public relations guru, Heather Daniels, despises belligerent sales reps. Seriously, what could be worse?

Transferring to Ireland to discover she’s expected to clean up after her stalker-zilla predecessor. The aggressive jerk left a real mess. And the first executive listed on her make-amends-inventory, Liam Rudraige, has disappeared.

Excerpt

Heather rose to her feet, straightening the stack of slick Wells & Hancock PR folders on the conference table in front of her. “No,” she said in her quiet, firm voice. “That’s unacceptable. I can’t believe you want me to follow in my predecessor’s footsteps. I was told fixing Lester’s mess is the reason you brought me on. Moved me all the way here to Cork from New York.”

“You come highly recommended,” her new supervisor, Jeff, murmured.

“Not as a sledgehammer. My specialty is building long-term relationships with our clients. The shipping company executives you’ve been targeting are disgusted by Lester’s take-no-prisoners-attitude and his pitbull behavior. You have to understand each shipping executive sees their role in developing the port in Cork differently. They do want to participate, but at varying levels. Most of them already have ongoing obligations to their ancillary businesses in Dublin.”

“What makes you such an expert?” Jeff asked. When he raised his chin like that, he looked just like his namesake uncle and half owner of the Manhattan based firm, Mr. Jeffrey Wells. She’d also carefully considered that complication before accepting this assignment.

“You’ve only been here a few days,” Jeff pointed out the obvious.

I did all my homework before I accepted this promotion,” she said. “We need to—”

“Your first assignment,” Jeff-the-jerk spoke over her, “is to figure out which contracts with W&H are missing signatures and follow up immediately on those.”

She stayed calm. “There wasn’t much in Lester’s desk and his office PC was wiped clean. Do you have his business phone, or a diary or any of his call records?”

“No. But as I just said, we need to identify the unsigned contracts to know who to go after.”

The nephew was a nightmare. Instead of listening, he was mansplaining her job priorities to her? “Before we go after anyone, we need to figure out how badly Lester harassed these people already.”

“It doesn’t matter,” Jeff insisted. “Most of the contracts are coming up on their due dates. The one that jumps out is with Muirdris Shipping.” Jeff waved a sheaf of legal-length papers in the air. ” Nothing has been signed by Mr. Rudraige and several are about to expire. You need to track him down. Get his signature now. Today.”

Not without a current assessment of Mr. Rudraige’s attitude toward W&H. “Do you know how the Muirdris manager feels—”

“Mr. Liam Rudraige doesn’t have feelings.” The way Jeff said the word made it sound dirty. “He’s a Director of Muirdris Shipping. And one of the very first and most vocal supporters of the Port of Cork expansion. Unless he recently had a complete change of heart, he should have signed all of these contracts with our company a year ago and be ready and willing to renew today.”

Trying to reason with Jeff was futile. The man wasn’t listening. His default response was to argue with her. Better appear to go along until she could figure out Rudraige’s state of mind toward their PR firm on her own. “I’ll do my best to contact the Muirdris director today and—”

“Your best? Like hell, just get his damn signature,” Jeff finished her sentence on his own terms.

Excerpt (PG)

“Why don’t you just give in, Baby?”

“I don’t know what you mean.”

“You want me and I want you. There’s nothing else to figure out.”“Life isn’t just about sex. We also have a war to fight and jobs to do. How is it going at the training complex?” She asked.

“It’s going fine. They’ll be breaking ground in a week.”

“That’s good. The sooner the better.”

“That’s what I say too about more than the training center.”

“Give it a rest Cam. There are other things to deal with.”

“Runaway and hide, my mate. I’ll let you go for now, but tomorrow is a new day.”

She saw he was hurt by her answer, but she rushed away just glad to escape for now. In her room she readied for bed needing the sleep and hoping to wake feeling rested. Yes, tomorrow was indeed another day and she hoped it was a better one than today had been.

Bewitched Dragon Mates by Melissa Thomas

Witch BJ MacClamity signed on to bake enchanted cupcakes, only to wind up stranded on an alien world with her skunk familiar. Born under the Capricorn sign, this curvy woman is an overachiever with a control complex a mile wide. Things can’t get any whackier… or can they? Horny dragon-shifters are fighting over her. These misguided males must be nuts!

Dragon-shifters Jael and Asher have been without their fated mate too long. For centuries these warriors yearned for the queen who will complete their trinity… a dragon rider in the truest sense. Discovering a voluptuous goddess alone in the woods is a dream come true. They combat an ancient rival to claim her for themselves.

Between dodging lightning bolts and tripping off cliffs, who has time to tutor a pair of kilt-clad virgins in the finer points of the art de l’amour?

Life is so very hard… and so are they.

Sexy escapades won’t get her home… and she’s not even sure she wants to go. When Asher sustains injuries that place him on the threshold of death, BJ must find some way for her cupcake magic to save the day.

Excerpt – Spicy

BJ tilted her head back, gazing up. Less than a foot separated them. He loomed over her, a fierce predator. Half his face fell in light, the other shadow. He studied her with an intent, unwavering stare and his voice was a dark seduction.

“When first ah saw ye, ah thought ah must be dreaming. Asher agreed. He said ye were too perfect to be real.”

“Thank you.” BJ blushed all the way to her toes. Even though she knew better than to put any stock in such excessive flattery, Jael had a way of making her believe. With a nervous laugh, she said, “You’re too sweet, but you’d better be careful or my head will inflate to bigger than a beach ball.”

“Why do ye act like ye dinnae deserve to be praised?”

“Because I don’t.” BJ cringed at the basic insecurity her answer betrayed. Her mouth turned down at the corners. This was a huge mistake. She started to withdraw, releasing the ledge.

“On no ye don’t.” His eyes betrayed his intent but she wasn’t ready. He captured both her wrists, preventing her escape. Their mouths met with velvet-soft pressure. Jael kissed her with the air of a man savoring every bite of a fine meal. Not tentative; definitely appreciative. In contrast to the balmy atmosphere, his lips were cool and refreshing, like a cold drink. He tasted like old bourbon, smooth and rich, burning on the way down.

BJ clenched her fists, arching into the kiss. A groan built in the back of her throat and she opened willingly for him when he acted as the aggressor. He thrust past her lips, stroking the smoothness of her teeth. His whisky-heat set her senses on fire. She craved his touch like a drug. Her overactive imagination had already conjured the fantasy of the rapture to be had in his arms.

She suspected both Asher and Jael were virgins, though neither of them had confessed. A small part of her worried he was too inexperienced a lover to actually satisfy her. She feared not only winding up dissatisfied, but disappointing or hurting him. The man oozed sex appeal. On earth, women would’ve been throwing themselves at him right and left. The only reason he lacked expertise was because of the severe dearth of women on his native world. BJ didn’t want to judge him, however; she hoped to teach him… And, of course, she stood to benefit, too. She wasn’t such a hypocrite that she pretended otherwise even for a moment.

Their embrace lasted forever, evolving from that initial sweetness to smoky seduction. Jael kissed her gently and thoroughly, with no sense of urgency. It seemed to her that he savored the sweetness of slow discovery. Although winded, she managed to breathe through her nose. BJ adored his devotion to the art of kissing, but she swiftly grew impatient. Luckily, being lip-locked presented no barriers to telepathic communication.

More. I want more.

Excerpt (Sexy)

Naveen pulled away from Slone and looked down at her destroyed shirt. Part of her should care…but then again, she just wanted him. We want him because he’s our mate, her beast pitched in but Naveen shoved her back. He’d already mentioned not wanting a mate, but here and now she could show him what it would be like to be with her. To feel him thrusting into her body and letting go of all their stress with mind-blowing orgasms. Later, she’d worry about convincing him being mates would be a good thing.

His hot mouth covered her right nipple and her back arched, giving him more of herself. Before she second-guessed anything, she yanked off his jacket and pulled open his shirt. A knotted tattoo covered most of his left pectoral and shoulder. Her fingers rolled over the ink and he shivered under her touch.

“Do they mean anything to you?” She met his gaze while still tracing through the knots.

“I get a new one when I complete a job.” He shoved the remaining bits of cotton from her body and then did the same for his shirt.

“Later, you’re going to tell me what you’re searching for.” She wanted to know everything about the man who’d helped her earlier. But she needed something more than answers; she needed to feel him inside.

“We’ll save that for later. For now, I want to taste every inch of your body.” Slone unfastened the button on her jeans with wicked speed then hooked his thumbs onto the sides. Heat pooled in her belly as her panties followed her jeans to the floor. “Tell me where your bed is, or I’ll take you on the wee couch.”
