Synopsis

A grammy-winning rock star falls for a small-town girl in this all-new forbidden romance from author Carrie Elks.
Gray Hartson is coming home after years of playing to sold-out stadiums around the world. The tattooed singer is determined to build bridges with his sick father and reconnect with the family he left behind.
But then he meets her . . . the beautiful waitress with the smart mouth who makes him laugh more than he has in years.
One small problem. She’s his ex-girlfriend’s little sister. The only woman he can’t have.
Maddie Clark was an awkward teenager when Gray left. Now she slings hash in a backwater diner, her dreams of being a famous concert pianist left in tatters.
Don’t ask her why. She’ll never tell. Strong women do what it takes to keep a roof over their heads.
Until he walks through the door and complicates everything.
Their attraction is wrong.
But foolish hearts never listen to reason.
Maybe he should write a song about that.

Release Date: Feb 12, 2020
Cover Designed by: Najla Qamber

 

 

Two tiny lines that change everything…

Doctor James Tanner is gorgeous, successful and decisively single.

He’s also a widower with a broken heart.

When he meets a beautiful woman on a fateful night out, their chemistry shocks him to the core.

 

Harper Hayes is irresistible.

With her pink-tipped hair and tantalizing smile, she makes him forget all his pain.

 

One night together won’t hurt, will it?

One night to get her out of his system.

Then he’ll leave in the morning without a backward glance.

 

But actions have consequences, and this one will change their lives forever.

And when Harper sees those two little lines she knows exactly what that means.

Now she just needs to find her baby’s father.

 

What a shame she doesn’t even know his name…

 





Excerpt

“I’m sorry I walked out that night,” he said when he closed the break room door behind them. “I don’t usually do that kind of thing.”

“Walk out after a night of amazing sex?” She raised an eyebrow.

“I meant having the amazing sex in the first place. But yeah, I don’t usually walk out without a word either.” He shook his head. “It was an asshole thing to do. The least I could have done was taken you to breakfast.”

“Don’t worry. Breakfast was included with the room. And it isn’t your midnight ghosting I wanted to talk about.”

“It isn’t?”

“Nope.” She glanced at the door, as if to make extra sure it was closed. “Look, this is embarrassing and not at all how I imagined spending my day. I’d assumed I’d never see you again, and I was okay with that. Or as okay as you can be after waking up to an empty bed.” She took a deep breath. “So anyway, the thing is, I didn’t give you an STD that night, but you did give me something.”

“You think I gave you an STD?” He shook his head. “I couldn’t have.” She was the first person he’d had sex with in three years. “You’ve got the wrong guy.”

“I haven’t.” She pulled her lip between her teeth, her gaze meeting his. “It wasn’t an STD you gave me, James. It was a few extra sperm; I’m pregnant.”

Just A Kiss – Release Day Blitz!

Title: Just A Kiss
Author: Carrie Elks
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Nov 1, 2019
Cover Designed by: Najla Qamber

Beautiful, perfect and everything he needs.

Caitie Russell’s big brother is getting married. As the proud owner of Holiday Magic, Caitie is the obvious choice to organise the perfect Christmas wedding. Piece of cake, right?

If it weren’t for one gorgeous man-shaped problem…

Her brother’s best friend, Brecken Miller.

 

He was her first crush.

Her first kiss.

Her first broken heart…

 

Construction worker Brecken Miller is a modern-day Scrooge.

The confirmed bachelor would rather pull his nails out than celebrate Christmas, until he sees Caitie again.

Like a moth to a flame he’s drawn to her.

But there’s a problem with fire. It always leaves a scar.

 

**Sweet Little Lies is the fourth book in the Angel Sands series, set in a small beach town on the California coast. If you like a heartwarming holiday romance that’s low on angst and big on feels, this is the story for you!**

 




Excerpt

When the door closed behind her for a second time, Caitie bit down a smile and slowly turned to look at Breck. He was leaning on the wall, arms folded across his chest, the skin at the corner of his eyes crinkling up as he smiled at her.

“Hello,” he said, his smile widening.

“Hi.”

She felt breathless as the air around them snapped and crackled. The hairs on her neck stood up. Breck slowly pushed off the wall and walked over to the sofa where she was standing, his strides long and confident.

Caitie didn’t move. She wasn’t even sure if she could. Her muscles were tense with anticipation, her skin tingling with need. There was a half-smile on his lips as he reached out for her chin, using the pads of his fingers to tip her face up.

“Cait…” His voice caressed her ears. She loved the way her name sounded on his lips.

“Did you know you’re the only one who calls me that?” she asked breathlessly.

“Do you mind?”

She shook her head slowly, his fingers still holding her. “No. I like it.” Too much.

He took another step forward, his eyes firmly on hers. “I like it, too,” he said. “The same way I like you.”

Her chest tightened. Standing so close to him felt overwhelming. She could smell the woody scent of his cologne, feel his firm touch as his fingers caressed her jaw. Everywhere she looked, all she saw was him.

“Where were we last week?” he asked her.

The corner of her lip quirked up. “Remind me?”

He chuckled and lowered his head until his lips were a breath away from hers. She could see the thickness of his eyelashes, the strong line of his nose, the warmth of his skin where it was kissed by the California sun.

“I think it was a little like this,” he murmured, brushing his lips against hers.

Cover Designed by: Najla Qamber

He was the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. She was everybody’s princess. Ten years later, he’s back in town and this time he has something to prove.

Aiden Black never thought he’d return to the small beach town he grew up in. But as the new director of a luxury resort, he’s determined to make it a success. What he doesn’t expect is to run into an old flame, the girl that got away.

Single mom, Brooke Newton, cares about two things. Taking care of her son and helping out at the local animal shelter. Until she’s sent on a mission to save an endangered dog, and comes face to face with the only man she’s ever loved.

As soon as they meet, the attraction between them reignites. But Brooke has a secret – a big one – and she has no idea how to tell Aiden. As lies are exposed, and truths are told, they’re determined to take advantage of this second chance. It’s a shame not everyone in town has got the message…

Excerpt

Somehow, Brooke managed to pull herself together. She let out a mouthful of air and nodded at the man in front of her. “We’ve met before,” she said, her voice thin. “Hello, Aiden.”

He said nothing for a moment, but she could feel those dark eyes taking every inch of her in. There was something unfamiliar about him. It wasn’t quite foreboding but it was on the borderline. She got the impression nobody messed with Aiden Black.

A shiver snaked down her spine.

“Brooke,” he finally said, holding his hand out for her to shake as though they were mere acquaintances. “How are you?”

For a moment she considered giving him a honest answer. Shocked. Nauseous. Wondering where the hell he’d been for the past ten years. “I’m good, thank you,” she replied, holding his hand firmly in hers. It was warm, strong, and sent the biggest jolt up her arm. In spite of the heat, her skin broke out in goose bumps.

“And your parents? Are they well?” The corner of his lip curled up. Was that a sneer?

“They’re good, too.” She nodded. “And you? How have you been?”

There was a twitch in the corner of his jaw. His face was as sculpted as she remembered. Though he was freshly shaven, she could remember the way it felt as she pressed her lips against his stubbled chin, kissing her way along his jawbone.

Stop it, Brooke.She didn’t need to be thinking about this, not now, and not ever.
