Excerpt:

The minute he looked up at her, and his eyes landed on hers, she saw in them how she felt. Desire, yearning for something more, but neither of them wanting to say it. Waiting for him to make the move, she scooted back against the wall as she kept her eyes on his. The thoughts… she needed to keep this friends only. She had no intention of doing anything that her thoughts were suggesting.

“You should really be going,” she said, stammering over each word. “I have to be up early and I have so much I have to do before I can even call it a night.”

A smile tugged at his lips as his eyes focused on her lips. “You’re rambling again, Janelle.”

Crossing her legs in front of her, she squirmed at the affect he had on her. His eyes, his lips, everything about him at this exact moment was her undoing. She shook her head in an attempt to stop the overwhelming, ridiculous sexy thoughts she was having.

“Really, you should go,” she said again, a failed attempt on her part to make him leave. Her mind and her heart were playing a fierce game of tug of war. One part wanted him to leave before anything could happen they’d later regret, but the other part, the part of her that longed to be loved and desired, wanted him to stay.

Placing his hands on either side of her on the bench, he pulled himself up. Leaning over her, he whispered into her ear, “I don’t think that’s what you really want me to do.”

His words rasped against her ear, sending chills down her spine, causing her to arch into his chest. She released a heavy breath as she fought back the urge to unleash her inner desires. Feeling a sensation she hadn’t felt in a long time, she shifted against the heated bench. Restless and craving what he had to offer, her brain fought against her desire with logical reasoning. This man had once been her enemy, a man she had not wanted anything to do with, only a few short months ago.

“Tell me what you really want, Janelle,” he whispered breathless against her ear.

For the love of God if he didn’t stop with that whispering, she was going to…

Scooping her up into his arms, he shifted her against his waist, allowing her legs to wrap around him. He allowed her a split second to resist, and when she didn’t, he carried her to the couch and set her gently underneath him as he placed his firm, but soft, lips against hers.

She pressed into the kiss, allowing his tongue to wander into her mouth. Shutting off her thoughts, she wrapped her arms around his neck and gripped her hands in his hair. He had given her plenty of chances to stop what was happening, but she wouldn’t allow him to pull away.

“Are you sure you want to do this?” he asked, breathless as he unbuttoned his checkered shirt.

Did he really want her to think this through? It was a bit too late for that, wasn’t it? She had long ago shut her mind off. She wasn’t allowing any negative thoughts to ruin whatever this was between them. Her friends had always told her she hadn’t taken enough risks in life. If this wasn’t the biggest risk she was about to take, she didn’t know what was.

She needed to tell him something, but debated not to. She didn’t want to ruin whatever this was, whether it was a one night stand or friends with benefits or possibly something more, she didn’t care. The desire and the heat they shared between them tonight was something…

“I’m not staying in Seattle,” she said, barely able to get the words out between his fierce kissing.

“Let’s not talk about that right now,” he said, pulling off his shirt. His eyes fell on hers as he sat up. “Are you sure you want to do this?

Blurb: 

Kenzie
I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie — the yes girl! In every area of my life but one —Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love — to Kane — to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw?
Kane
Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugarcoat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your sh*t, and hope they love you anyway.

The Terms by Ruby Rowe

23 Mar

 Title: The Terms: Part One
Series: The Terms Duet
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genres: Romantic Suspense, Erotica Romance, BDSM
Cover Model: Alfie Gabriel
Cover Design: Jo-Anna at Just write. Creations
Release Date: April 27, 2017

I wanted to hate her. For three years, Camilla withheld the fact that my brother had a son, Liam.

Then, Tony died without ever knowing his kid, and I was going to make sure Ms. Rose paid a price for her deceit. I also wanted Liam to be raised as a Burke. Our family’s legacy was one to carry on, so the terms were straightforward.

Live in my home.

Allow me to help raise Liam.

Oh, and agree to be my submissive.

In return, I agreed not to rip Camilla’s child away from her. I also offered them both financial security and a life of luxury. It seemed generous to me. It might’ve been simple, too, had she not reminded me of the lady in red. The one who haunted my dreams at night. Camilla’s hazel eyes were a mirror image, her sweetness more than an acquaintance to my subconscious.

I was a hacker by trade, and the internet was my best friend, sharing with me every secret I wished to unearth. I believed that until an unfathomable truth revealed itself in a different way.

Some secrets are never whispered, only sensed by the heart, and all along, my soul held the truth. It hid even from me the most important secret of them all.

The Terms ends in a cliffhanger. It contains explicit language and graphic sex, including aspects of BDSM. The second novel in the duet, The Terms: Part Two, will release June 1st.

 

  

 

 

Excerpt from The Terms: Part One (The Terms Duet)
© Ruby Rowe 2017
Pulling on my arm, he signals for me to stand. I’m wobbly until I feel his tongue roll over my nipple. My hands find his shoulders, and I use them to brace myself as he sucks the stiff pebble inside his mouth.“Yes,” I say breathlessly. His fingers thrust inside me, and my legs open to give him room. I’m loving every sensation, from his heated mouth to his thick fingers stretching my walls. “Oh, please don’t stop.” As I pant for air, and dig my nails into his shoulders, his fingers slip from me.

No!

“Stand still.” He moves around me, stirring up a breeze, and it sounds like he’s fastening his pants. Shortly after, he removes the blindfold. My hand shields my eyes as they snap shut from the intrusive light. “Let this serve as a lesson not to lie to me. Open your eyes.” I do, and I’m confronted with his penetrating gaze. He’s fully clothed, holding my blouse in his hand. “You can make our years together easy, or you can make them hard. It’s up to you.”

Grabbing my shirt from him, I hold it over my exposed breasts. “Years…? Do you even hear yourself? You’re a handsome and wealthy man who could have as many women in your bed as you choose, probably at once even, yet you’re trying to play house with me in some twisted way.”

“I’ve already had a plethora of women, and like we’ve discussed repeatedly, I want you and Liam here so he can be raised as a Burke.”

“Now, you’re lying. You didn’t bring us here so you could get close to Liam. You brought us here because of your desire to use me. You said you were pissed I withheld from Tony that he had a son, but I think you’re doing this to feel like you own what was once his, and it’s all because you hated him as much as he hated you.”

Turning beet red with anger, he points his finger in my face. “I have never felt hatred toward my brother, and you’re lying to yourself if you think Tony gave a damn about you. Not once did he breathe your fucking name to me.”

Tears come, but I hold them at bay. I don’t know why his words sting. I learned years ago that Tony didn’t give two shits for me, and Christopher confirmed he didn’t care about Liam, either.

“You’re evil, and although my body may betray me and desire your touch, my heart holds only contempt for you. Get out so I can dress and care for my son.”

“It’s your last night, Camilla. Tomorrow, I’m turning your ass scarlet.”

The Terms: Part Two (The Terms Duet, #2) 

 

COLTON

I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.

She was the forbidden fruit.

The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.

The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.

But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER

I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.

Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.

 

  

Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe,

releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica

romance and fell in love with the genre.

The pen name Ruby Rowe came about in 2017 when she decided it best to keep her

racier books separate from her young adult romances. She’d like to branch out and

release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be

difficult not to include romance in every story.

When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has

an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon,

coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. 😉 She hopes her writing will allow

her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their

fantasies.

Review

wp-1469455449693.jpg

It’s a retelling of classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. I think that the author has done justice to the original story, its well-written and captures characters of both ‘Beauty’ and ‘Beast’ wonderfully. I enjoyed reading it and I think anyone who likes fairy tales will love this new version of an old tale. Personally, I’ve always loved Beauty and the Beast. Story has so much depth and it tells us insights about human mind ans soul. On one hand, there is Beast, an outwardly ugly man with a pure heart. On the other hand, there is Raphael, a handsome man who is rotten to the core. Choice is simple, how can Isabella not love the Beast?
Adam has lived in isolation for so long that he has forgotten how to interact with people. You can say that his mannerism is beastly. But as soon as he sees Isabella something changes. He wants to make her comfortable and happy. Soon he starts to love her but fears that she will never love someone like him. Little does he know that Isabella has such a kind and beautiful heart that she can see beyond his outer looks. She knows that Adam is the man for her. May be she will finally find her happiness.

“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Definitely a great read. I believe that story has stayed close to the classic version but still there are enough surprises to keep readers on their toes. I’d recommend it to my fellow readers.
