#ReleaseBlitz | #ExcerptReveal | DARE TO EMBRACE by S B Alexander @SBALEX_AUTHOR (November 18th 2019) @ArdentPRose






































I have a decision to make—family or my career. The problem is I want both, and I don’t know how to choose.



Lacey



I promised Kade we would start a family when my baseball contract is up. But now a Triple-A ball club is interested in me. If I sign with them, getting pregnant is not an option.



The last thing I want to do is disappoint my husband, but moving up in the major leagues is vital to me.



I can’t give up what I worked so hard to achieve. But I can’t live without the man who is my everything, and if I do this, I know I risk losing him forever.



Kade



I hardly see Lacey during baseball season, but with the All-Star break in full swing, I have four blissful days to spend with my beautiful wife.



I have plans that will keep us locked away with no distractions. It will be her and me, our king size bed, and a chance to make up for lost time.



But when her agent calls, the four days turn into a shit storm.



Now, our future plans are in jeopardy.



And our marriage is on the line.

I would never forget that day. The bright lights in that high school parking lot had hit his face just perfectly. His copper eyes had sparkled. His long lashes had fluttered, and I remembered wondering how it would feel to have his long lashes skimming over my face or anywhere on my body.

Butterfly kisses.

He traced circles on my bare leg, eliciting a string of goose bumps. “Penny for your thoughts.” His voice was husky and downright panty-melting.

I captured his lips, pushing my tongue through until we were in a heated kiss. All that tension fell away, and before I knew what was happening, I was straddling him while his hands were on the move over my body—my waist, my breasts, my ass, everywhere.

The pounding of the rain became our music as the drops pinged off the glass top of the sunroom.

He threaded his fingers through my hair, tugging my head back before he began kissing my neck.

“Mr. Steel is growing,” I said through a moan.

“I need to be inside you.” His voice was raspy.

He didn’t have to say another word. In a flash, I was naked, standing before him.

He raked his gaze up then down, slow and sure. I felt like he was kissing every part of my body.

He tore off his shirt. “You’re more beautiful than the day we met.”

I licked my lips as I admired my gorgeous husband. The man was all muscle with dips and valleys on his upper torso. But the one area that always got me right where it counted were the hearts tattooed on his chest—five of them. Four of the hearts represented his siblings. The one that sat above them had my name inked inside, and that was the reason happy tears burned my eyes.

“You know we have a problem.”

One of his eyebrows went up. “Oh?”

“I’m naked, and you’re not.”

He remedied that in two seconds flat. As we both stood naked and facing each other with the rain pouring down, all the tension, problems, life, and anything or anyone who could get in our way didn’t matter.

He erased the short distance between us, bowed his head, pinched one of my nipples, and leaned into my ear. “I’m going to fuck you until the sun comes up.”

I shivered in delight. “I love when you talk dirty. But first, you have to catch me.” I ran out of the sunroom, giggling like I was a teenager again.

He let out a belly laugh. “You know I’m faster than you.”

It was my turn to laugh as I banked a corner in the hallway that led upstairs. “Maybe. But can you find me?” Of course he could. My dad’s house wasn’t as big as our new home. The game wasn’t about whether Kade could find me or not. It was more about letting go of our problems and having fun for one night.

My bare feet slapped on the steps. I knew he could hear me.

“I always find you,” he said as his voice drew closer.






























I’m Susan Alexander, and you’ll find my books under S.B. Alexander. A little about me. I’ve been writing since 2012 and started with writing all about vampires. After the second vampire book, I began to branch out in New Adult Romance. I love to read mostly all genres, and I’m always game to try something new. So I tested my hand at writing romantic suspense and just loved it. So you’ll find I write in several different sub-genres of romance.

In between writing, I spend time with my soul mate of 20 years who got a bad deal in life. Three years ago he was diagnosed with ALS. It’s a horrible disease, but we both have been making the best of life, laughing, smiling, and doing what we can together.

But writing is a great outlet for me to take my mind to another place. Plus, I have a great network of family, friends, fans, and so much more. I truly have an angel on my shoulder. My mantra is make the best of life because it’s too darn short.

#Excerpt Reveal | HOLDING ON TO FOREVER by Siobhan Davis and S B Alexander @SIOBHANDAVIS @SBALEX_AUTHOR (September 15TH 2019 @ARDENTPROSE )













































Secretly dating Coach Parker’s daughter was never part of the plan. Neither was becoming her dealer…




ADAM

Returning to my drug-dealing past wasn’t on the agenda when I accepted the full ride to play ball at Cypress U. But Mom lost her job. And my sister’s medical bills are mounting. So, I’ve no choice but to change the playbook.




When Emily walks into my life, like a fallen goddess with the ultimate power to destroy me, I know I’m screwed. I should steer clear, but I’m the one supplying her poison of choice. Falling for her is a complication I don’t need, but the more she’s around, the harder it gets to walk away. She needs me, and I crave her more than the sport I love.




Now, it’s all on the line. Including the NFL career that’s tantalizingly close.




The stakes are high, but family means everything, so I’ll take my chances.




EMILY

It’s only a problem if it’s out of control. And I have it in hand.




Except a certain a-hole discovers I’m using again, and he threatens to rat me out to my folks. Mom’s president of Cypress U, and Dad’s the illustrious football coach. Appearances mean everything to them, and I’m a continuous disappointment. They told me I’d be out on my ass if I fell off the wagon, so keeping it a secret is my number one priority.




Until the super-hot all-star QB takes more than a passing interest in me. Adam gets me, in a way no guy ever has, filling my head with ideas of forever—and now, I want more.




Dating my dealer is a recipe for disaster, especially when it’s forbidden, but I can’t help myself.




Because I’ve fallen too deep.




And the hole is too large to crawl out of.

“Emily.” Adam clicks his fingers, peering into my face with concern in his eyes. “You still with me?”

“Sorry. My mind wandered.” I clench my hands in my lap, swallowing back bile as my body trembles all over.

“You’re shaking.” He pulls me to his chest, and I rest my cheek against his shoulder, allowing him to comfort me. He smooths a hand up and down my back, and it’s such a tender gesture it brings tears to my eyes again.

Adam is one of the good guys. Last night and this morning have proven that. If I was a normal girl, I’d be ass over tits crazy for him.

But I’m not, and I can’t afford to be.

I shuck out of his hold. “Thanks for looking after me last night.” I stand. “I should go.”

“Emily, wait.” He stands, threading his fingers in mine. “I know you’re scared. I can see it in your eyes. And I want to help.”

“Why me?” I tip my chin up, peering deep into his eyes.

He takes a big breath. “Because I like you and I don’t want to see you hurt.”

“Is that the only reason?”

He blows air out of his mouth, looking undecided for a few minutes. “I know all the reasons why you and I shouldn’t hang out,” he says, and my heart splutters in my chest. “But there are more reasons why we should.” My heart grows wings and soars.

“You want to hang out with me?” I blurt.

He rests his forehead on mine. “I want to do so much with you, Emily,” he whispers, and his warm breath fans across my face, igniting new flames. “But why don’t we start with being friends?”

“I don’t have many friends,” I admit in a hushed voice.

“Then it’s settled.” He hugs me to him, and I don’t protest this time, wrapping my arms around his solid body, and clinging to him like he’s my only lifeline. He tilts my chin up with the tip of one finger. “Now, tell me what’s really going on with Wes.”

He’s a football god.

She’s the daughter of a Texas senator.

Their chemistry is like oil and water.



My name is Ryker James. I hate when people tell me what to do. I’m cocky, ornery, and I take things when I want them. Caring isn’t in my vocabulary unless it’s related to football or my family, and I just lost my entire family in a blink of an eye. Now all I have is football.



The problem is the misery, the drinking, and the parties have more appeal to me. But Lakemont University wants that championship. Fans want to see wins on the scoreboard, and my teammates salivate to crush our opponents every game. The only pass I might be throwing is at the auburn-haired girl who waltzes into my life. She’s fire. I’m ice. A combination that doesn’t work. So let the games begin.





My name is Haven Hale, and I’d been tucked away in a boarding school most of my life. Now I’m a big-time college girl, and all I see is freedom in front of me. But first, I have to agree to my father’s demands—no media attention and no sororities. If I can follow those two edicts, then college life should be a breeze.



Until one close encounter with Ryker James, and Father Dearest has changed the game. Stay away from the big, bad quarterback, or face my father’s wrath. There’s only one problem. I can’t help who I’m attracted to, and Ryker James is a magnet, built to attract any female, constructed to make any girl’s heart sputter, and my heart is beating off the charts. But it’s time to choose between the devil I know and the one I don’t.

I can’t help who I’m attracted to, and Ryker James is a magnet, built to attract any female, constructed to make any girl’s heart sputter, and my heart is beating off the charts. But it’s time to choose between the devil I know and the one I don’t.

The doorbell kept ringing as though someone were holding the buzzer down. I was going to kill that person unless it was Coach Chapman. He would turn his hammer on me.

I chuckled out loud. Coach Chapman reminded me of Thor. At least his fists did when he rammed them down hard on a table, trying to elicit my attention or the team’s.

“I need you to leave.” My boner was completely gone now. I walked out of my room without another glance at Blondie.

I navigated the stairs, not in the mood to deal with whoever was standing on my porch. I knew one thing was certain—it couldn’t be the cops. I didn’t have any other close family members who could be dead. However, my aunt Kari was due in from England for the funeral. She’d been calling me nonstop to give me updates about her arrival, which wasn’t for… Hell, I didn’t even know. I’d lost track of days.

As I descended the last step and walked into the foyer, my blood gelled as I scrambled to think whether I’d missed football practice. Maybe that was the reason Lucas wasn’t around. I discarded that thought. For sure, Lucas would’ve dragged my ass out of bed early that morning.

I opened the door swiftly, and a red-haired pixie fell backward onto my bare feet. She was definitely not my aunt Kari.

Red scrambled to stand then swiped her hands down her jean shorts. At the same time, I was blatantly allowing my gaze to roam up and down her petite frame. Her tits were round and perfect. Her tanned legs were toned. Her lips were plump. Mmm. I liked plump lips. But she had no meat on her body.

“May I help you?” I asked. Maybe I can help you get your lips around my dick. At that thought, he jerked in my sweats.

She brushed her fingers through her hair, her eyes going straight to my crotch. “You can start by not sizing me up like I’m your breakfast.”

Tell me not to do something, and I’ll do it.

So once again, my gaze took a road trip over her body, slow and sure. “I haven’t eaten yet. Are you hungry?” I waggled my eyebrows, hoping she would get my underlying meaning.

She pushed past me and stomped into my house like she owned it. “We need to talk.”

The air around her filtered into my nose—lilacs. As if her scent was all I needed, bits and pieces of the night before registered in my murky brain.

Heaven.

“Talk or fuck? Because you were checking me out too,” I said, not that my erection wasn’t evident.

She gave me a cheeky smile. “I don’t do one-night stands.”

I grinned. “It’s daylight. How about a one-day stand?”

The sun poured in through the open door and the windows in the living room and dining room on either side of us as we stood in the foyer.

She shoved her middle finger in the air. “How many fingers do I have up?”

I closed the door and stalked toward her until she was pinned up against the banister. “Be careful, dollface. That gesture means something completely different to me.”

She rolled her green eyes as her chest rose and fell. “You’re an ass. And I’m not dollface.”

I lowered my head until our lips were a half-inch apart. “What would you like to be called, then?”

“Ew, your breath is disgusting.” She flattened her small hands against my bare chest and froze, staring at my pecs.

Not caring about my morning breath, I inhaled her lilac scent, which was doing crazy things to my body.

She worried her bottom lip. “Um. Can you step away?”

“Are you sure you want me to?” Because I want to fuck your brains out.

I didn’t know what in the hot Texas sun was happening. More memories of her on my lap bombarded me. This chick had some kind of juju that jumped off her and into me.

She finally ducked under my arm. “I need you to focus.” She wound her way down the hall and into the kitchen as though she owned the house. “You need a maid and a monstrous fan to blow out the stench in here.”

The only aroma I had in my nostrils was her.

I followed her as a door upstairs opened and closed. “I need a blow job.”

She snorted. “Ask one of the many women you sleep with.”

I didn’t recall her being so feisty when she was sitting on me. But I wasn’t complaining. I dug strong women. I also loved a challenge, and Red was throwing out challenge after challenge.
