No amount of braking will stop this payback from crashing and burning.

Racecar driver Lark Stevens agrees to help a close friend prove that paybacks can be a bitch. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in lust with her mark.
Set on her mission, Lark assumes the mystery man who amps up the heat and pushes her heart into overdrive is her intended target. And once they connect, getting even is the last thing on her mind.
As the heat smolders and revs from zero to sixty in mere seconds, Lark realizes she's on a crash course of emotion that no amount of braking will stop.

Excerpt : Chapter One
Are you sure you’re okay doing this? It’s a lot to ask. You haven’t done this since college.” Lark’s best friend and business partner, Eli, sounded tense on the other end of the phone.
Annoyed, Lark sighed. She’d already agreed to his request, and they’d talked it to death. “Of course I’m sure. Everything’s great. I’ll be at your office tomorrow afternoon around three.”
You know this is for fun. Just a bit of payback for Aaron.”
Yeah, yeah. I got it.”
Lark strolled to her bedroom closet, eager to see a few of her favorite things. She slid the accordion door open, anchored her phone between her cheek and shoulder, and reached behind a wad of hanging clothes to retrieve a plastic garment bag.
As she unzipped it, she smiled at the exquisite silk and leather. She hadn’t worn the more risqué skirts and tops in her closet for a couple years. Not since her last boyfriend, who hadn’t appreciated the adventure in their sex life. But she loved wearing leather or spandex. The material slid along her skin, bolstering her confidence and sexiness. Her heart rate raced from zero to sixty in anticipation. Lark shivered, hit the speaker button on her cell phone, and then dropped it on the nightstand.
Aaron won’t know what hit him. He’ll definitely understand the meaning of payback’s a bitch when I’m through with him.” Lark laid four outfits on the bed and pondered them.
Red, blue, and two black mega-short skirts with silk, midriff-baring halter tops—but which was best for a fun prank?
Just don’t hurt him.” Eli’s gruff voice hinted at concern for his longtime friend, who was about to be punked.
Don’t worry. I’ll treat him like my Chevy Impala, and shift him gentle.”
They both laughed.
She lifted the red set. Perfect. Lark got on her knees beside the bed to look underneath and reached in as far as possible. Once she touched the tops of the matching red stiletto knee-high boots, she grinned. This outfit topped off with her vibrant red wig would be the icing on the cake. Yes. She yanked the heels free from their hiding place.
There’s nothing to worry about. You go do your business with Fairfax Motors and land us a new sponsor, and I’ll take care of your good friend,” she said.
Aaron’s mentioned financially backing us, too. That’d be great for us.”
Lark sat on the side of the bed. “Great. We won’t turn away money. But—” she frowned. “You’re not pimping me out to score some green, are you?”
What? Jesus, Lark,” Eli shouted over the line. “I’d never do that and you know it. What do you take me for? We’re business partners, for fuck’s sake, and have been friends even longer than that! Hell, you’re the top female racecar driver anywhere. I’m not biased either. Besides, I’m not a lame chump, ya know.”
She laughed. “Okay. Okay. Stop groveling, you big baby. I hear ya. Go make us some moolah. I need to get pretty for tomorrow.”
I’ll call you around five to tell you how he reacted to the prank. And thanks, babe. You’re the best. I should be finished my meeting with Fairfax by then. I’ll be miles across town or I’d ask you to dinner.” Eli chuckled. “I should have set up a videotape to see Aaron’s face.”
No freaking way, buddy.” She tossed her jeans and underwear into the hamper in the corner. “I’ll give you every delicious detail. Gotta run. Ciao.”
She ended the call, then grabbed her robe from where it hung on the bedpost and strode into the bathroom.
Lark loved this room. The white walls and floor tile sparkled in the sunlight shining from the skylight she’d had installed after moving in. It was her sanctuary—her getaway from the dust and sweat from the track, and the demands on her time—and where she did her best thinking. Plus, racing at full throttle almost every day made her shoulders tight and rigid, and she really needed to soak the tension away.
Her seventy-two-inch claw-foot bathtub had been the final nail in the coffin in her decision to buy this house. Some days she lived in her tub.
Lark set her belongings on the vanity and turned the taps to fill the deep, cast-iron oval tub. She turned and shed her favorite “Race Car Drivers Like It in Overdrive” t-shirt and sweats that Eli had bought her last year for her birthday.
She bunched her hair up and back with her fingers, tugged the long tresses into a ponytail, and then peeled off her bra and panties.
Pleased with the way the day had gone, Lark smiled. She’d accomplished the second win she needed to advance to the next round of competition. Excitement for tomorrow filled her. She and Eli always had a blast; they shared a twisted sense of humor. Pulling one over on his best friend was going to be a lot of fun: Lark was going to deliver a simple bump-and-grind lap dance that had him sweating. It’d serve Aaron right for pushing some dude on Eli six months ago, trying to prove Eli was gay. She wanted to avenge her best friend, who hadn’t yet admitted his sexuality. They’d touched on the subject a few times, but he’d adamantly refused to confirm. She’d never pushed Eli into admitting what she suspected was the truth. And the realization that Aaron had tried to force Eli into something he wasn’t ready for irked her.
Prank or not, she loved putting on her shit-kicker boots, dressing to kill, and putting on a good show.
Teaching someone a lesson or two added to the thrill of dancing sexy again and pulling off this prank. When she finished with Aaron, all he’d see was her taillights as she left him teased and confused.
Paybacks were such a bitch.

Kelli A. Wilkins Promo Loving A Wild Stranger

New Release — Loving a Wild Stranger

This full-length romance is set in the Michigan Territory and blends adventure with a sensual love story.

Loving a Wild Stranger

A woman running from her past… straight into the arms of an untamed man

In a moment of desperation, Kathleen Stanton flees her pampered life in Kingston, New York and ends up stranded in a small town in the Michigan Territory. Out of money and forced to rely on her instincts, she impersonates a handsome stranger’s mail-order bride.

Committed to her deception, Kathleen calls herself Michelle and starts her new life with Luther in an isolated cabin in the wilderness. Luther can’t believe his luck when his beautiful bride arrives, but something doesn’t feel right about his new wife. Michelle has terrifying nightmares involving a man named Roger and is reluctant to talk about where she came from.

Luther’s friend, Redfeather visits and tries to convince Luther to send Michelle back east. Distrusting Michelle, he warns Luther that his bride is not what she seems. But Luther is in love with Michelle, and he is harboring a secret of his own—one that might force Michelle to reject him when she learns the truth.

Michelle falls in love with Luther and adapts to her new way of life. Together, they face off against brutal townspeople and overcome harsh living conditions. When they finally give in to their desires and agree to become a proper man and wife, a dark figure from Michelle’s past resurfaces and threatens to destroy everything.

Flynn’s new boss is so hot he can’t wait to get home to tell the chatroom how much he wants Dom’s cock down his throat. By Friday, he’s shared quite a few thoughts on what he’d like his boss to do to him. But he’s not as anonymous as he thinks, and Dom’s intent on disciplining him for breaching company policy on social networking. Dom gives him a choice of put up or shut up: he can play out the fantasy in real life, or he can walk out of the office without a word to HR as long as he never talks that way about Dom again. Flynn chooses “put up”—but he’s forgotten about one of the things he said he wouldn’t mind doing.


The new manager was really something: tall, dark, and handsome, with a superb arse that looked great in a suit. Flynn wouldn’t mind seeing what it looked like out of the suit. Unfortunately the suit was respectably cut at the front, making it impossible to tell without staring whether the guy dressed to the left or the right, let alone how big his cock was. Not the sort of thing one ought to be thinking about while listening to the big boss introduce the new manager. He barely caught the guy’s name—Dominic. “Pleasure to meet you all,” Dominic said. “I look forward to getting to know you better over the next few weeks.” Flynn looked forward to it as well. He particularly looked forward to getting to know him better in the gents, at least well enough to idly glance down and check out the cock. A pity he wasn’t likely to get to know Dominic in the gents any better than that, not in real life; but it was his own business what he did in the privacy of his own head. And in the privacy of his favourite board online that evening. No wallet names, no ID. Not even your location listed unless you wanted it out there in the hope of hooking up with someone for a night’s fuck. A safe place to talk about just how much he fancied the new boss. [New boss arrived today. Absolutely bloody gorgeous, if you like older men. Wouldn’t mind having him discipline me for poor performance.] [Better if he disciplines you for good performance] an anon said. [Oh, I think I could perform well for him.] Flynn could think of a number of ways he could perform, starting with: [Down on my knees with my mouth open.]

Love is... Beck Robertson and contest

Love is ...The magic love equation

Love is a funny old concept. What is love exactly? Most of us are unsure what precisely it is, though if pressed to answer that question we could be cornered into saying things like...

Love is when you feel like you’ve found someone who always has your back.”


Love is when you feel that spark, that certain something.”

Or even

Love is when you know you’ve found your soulmate.”

But what is love really? The problem with the above answers is, though all of them touch on love, none of can really explain for everyone, and in understandable terms, what love actually is.

So I’m going to try.

A lofty goal you might say but the question of what love is exactly played on my mind a lot while I was writing my paranormal romantic suspense Blood Hunger. My main protagonist Lola is super scared of opening up because she’s been hurt before. She’s so scared in fact, she keeps the fact she’s a vampire secret from the man she’s falling in love with.

Why is love so powerful?

Why does it have the capability to hold us all in its thrall? Why would someone be so scared of being hurt by someone they love, that they might keep a really big secret from that person, all to avoid being rejected by that person?

Love is so elusive scientists haven’t even been able to define what love is yet. But I think love is a combination of several things.

I call this the magic love equation.

One of the components of this equation is values. It’s when you meet a person who embodies everything that is most important to you. And embodies all those things much more strongly than anyone else you’ve ever met. They don’t have to possess the same qualities as you yourself. They just have to possess qualities you feel are important, your highest values if you will.

What do I mean by that exactly?

Well say principled, intelligent, eco warriors with impressive physiques are the values you most admire. Imagine one night you’re sitting in a bar, drinking, and along comes this guy.

He’s good looking, and well muscled ( sounds good right?) but even better, when you get talking to him you find out that he’s got a Master’s in Marine Biology and he’s currently working on a way to reduce global warming by inventing eco-friendly washing machines.

Impressive right? You’d probably at least find him attractive?

But you likely wouldn’t fall in love with him right away.


Because another important part of the magic love equation is familiarity. Even in fiction, it’s rarely a good story if the two main characters fall for one another right off the bat. Sure the potential is there, there’s that “spark” I mentioned earlier but the love process still takes time.

In my book, Lola doesn’t fall for Dillon, the object of her affections overnight. She meets him and finds him highly attractive but she doesn’t love him straight away.

He embodies the values she holds in highest esteem; chivalry, braveness, and a kind heart. He’s charming and adorable and there’s definitely intrigue and attraction between the two of them, but still, she doesn’t know him. She can’t feel bonded to him, not just yet.

What does make her begin to fall for him is intimacy. Proximity. And closeness. Lots and lots of yummy closeness.

This is another vitally important part of the love equation. When we first meet someone, it can be hard to feel truly close to them right away. Certain things speed up the process considerably though.

Like having shared interests to talk about, or bonding over laughter. Oh and of course, sex. Never underestimate the power of bedroom bonding. But sex is not as important for the reasons you might at first think.

You don’t fall for someone because they’re great in the sack, unless being stellar in bed is one of your highest values. After all you can find someone attractive, sleep with them, but still not fall madly in love.

What kickstarts the love process, is when you find someone who embodies your highest values, and then, through a process of intimacy (talking, laughing, bumping naughty bits) you bond with them. This is what makes you feel uniquely connected to them, and what makes you crave more of them.

As Lola spends more time with Dillon, as he slowly seduces her with his protective dominance, she feels more connected to him. She craves him more and more, and some of her hard, spiny, outer shell starts to fall away. She becomes vulnerable.

Which brings me to the final part of the love formula. Vulnerability.

To truly love someone, you have to be willing to be vulnerable. But being vulnerable is a terrifying prospect to many of us, especially if we’ve been hurt before.

To peel back the many layers of protection we construct to guard our fragile little hearts, someone, the right someone needs to make us feel safe. Once you meet someone you find attractive, someone who embodies your highest values, a person you have bonded with and who makes you feel safe, the deal is sealed and the magic love formula is complete!

As Dillon shows Lola he will protect her, demonstrates that he will be the one who will never let her down, gradually all her walls come crashing down. Lola may be a vampire but fiction often mirrors truth, no matter how fantastical the story setting.

Need a new read? If you love steamy, dark paranormal romance, with lashings of vampire lore and the vicarious thrills of a forbidden romance, you might want to get Blood Hunger for your Kindle.

Love is.. .PG Forte and Contest

Love is optimistic. People say that love is blind, but I think that misses the point. Yes, love expects the best from everyone, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t see the flaws, it just accepts them. Love is happy to give second chances. It believes in new beginnings. Love is hopeful and trusting, which might look foolish on the surface, but it’s what gives love its strength and resiliency, its ability to—if I may paraphrase Shakespeare—look on tempests and be unshaken.
Love is necessary. It’s something everyone needs. And in years like 2016 when so many of us seem to have suffered so much loss, and when the news has been filled with fear and anger, intolerance and heartbreak, I think we need it more than ever.
GIVEAWAY: Comment below and let me know one thing you’d love to see or get or have happen in 2017. I’ll be giving away a $15. gift certificate (Amazon or Barnes & Noble) to one lucky commenter, chosen at random, on January 1st. I wish you all good luck and Happy Holidays and a joyous and love-filled 2017.
PG Forte inhabits a world only slightly less strange than the ones she creates. Filled with serendipity, coincidence, love at first sight and dreams come true.
She wrote her first serialized story when she was still in her teens. The sexy, ongoing adventure tales were very popular at her oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes...even if her teachers didn't always think so.
Originally a Jersey girl, PG now resides with her family on the extreme left coast where she writes contemporary and paranormal romance in a variety of sub-genres.

Love is...Sabrina York and Contest

Love Is…Remembering it’s not all about me!!!!
Love is many things at difference times, but when I sit down and really think about it, it’s about putting other people first.
Okay. I will admit it boldly. I am self-absorbed, selfish and obsessed with my own personal pleasures.
For a good portion of my life, that was how I lived. I thought about what I wanted and how to get it most of the time. Even though I worked in a service industry, I didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about OTHER people (unless they annoyed me).
The epiphany began to unfold for me when I was first published and discovered the crushing humility of this new career—my dream career in fact. I have NO IDEA it would be this hard. And by that, I mean, I had no idea how much being a published author would batter my ego. Oh, I was pounded from stem to stern by reviewers who (for some reason) didn’t think I was a genius, editors who had the audacity to tell me I had dangled a modifier and the general vagaries of a brutal landscape where you never know what kind of terrible thing will happen next to ruin your dreams.
It was a frightening time for me. I often wondered if I should just give up.
The thought nearly killed me, because I love writing and I love everything else about being an author (with the exception of what it does to my shattered ego)…but then I had an eye opening thought.
What if I did the unthinkable and REMOVED MY EGO from the equation?
What if I didn’t write for glory and accolades?
What if I wrote for the pure joy of it?
What if I wrote…for others?
Once the thought occurred, I knew at once it was the answer to my misery.
It also FELT RIGHT. Like, deep in my soul.
With this small shift in my mindset, I became able to overlook personal annoyances and grudges and minor disappointments, because my eyes were set on the big picture, the brass ring. Making the world a better place for one reader at a time. Giving back where and when I could. Using my God given talents for other people rather than for my own glory.
Not that I ever had a lot of actual glory, per se, but you get the point.
And that point is this: I am happier when I focus on making other people happy.
In some ironic cosmic plot twist, this is somehow always the case.
And when we are happy and fulfilled and GRATEFUL for what we have and can do for others, our hearts swell with this glorious warmth…which I have defined as love in its purest form.

The Giveaway:
One of the ways I love to give back to my readership is by giving away tiaras (because I believe ALL my readers on the planet should have one).
Want to win a tiara from me?
