UP - BT banner


Unforgotten Passion, an all-new sexy second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Erika Wilde, is out now!


UNFORGOTTEN PASSION_EBOOK

UNFORGOTTEN PASSION is a modern, sinfully seductive take on Rapunzel.

As a famous pop star, Raevynn Walsh has lived most of her life surrounded by fame and fortune while her every choice or decision is controlled by others. Each day she dreams of breaking free from her star-studded castle. She may be living a fantasy, but it’s not her own.

Collin Donovan can’t resist an opportunity to attend the Wilder Way Fairy Tale Ball and catch a glimpse of the sensual songstress he’d once adored but had been forced to let go. When the familiar chemistry burns bright, Raevynn turns to Collin to rescue her from her chaotic life and glamorous prison, even if only for a short while.

After escaping the guards, the two lovers unravel the lies around them and rekindle the passions they’d thought were forgotten. With their time coming quickly to an end, can they save the princess from her gilded tower or is she doomed to stay caged in the spotlight forever?

Excerpt:
When Raevynn met Collin's gaze again, she realized he was staring at her features intently, making her feel suddenly self-conscious since it had been a long time since a man had seen her without an ounce of makeup on.  “Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked softly.

In bare feet, he slowly closed the short distance between them, and she remained right where she was, barely able to breath when he stopped a few inches from her. She had to tip her head back to meet his striking green eyes that were filled with the sweetest, most honest affection.

“Because this is the Raevynn I remember,” he murmured, brushing the backs of his fingers along her cheek, causing her breath to hitch in her throat at that gentle but sensual caress.  “Fresh-faced. A natural beauty who doesn’t need anything to enhance this perfect, flawless skin. Lush lips that are so naturally soft and pink . . .”

His words trailed off, as if he realized he was starting to travel into intimate territory.  Instead, his hand moved to the hair she’d plaited, the long, intertwined strands that came over her shoulder and hung down past her left breast.  As if mesmerized, his fingers slowly, gradually traced the woven pattern all the way down to the hairband she’d found in the bathroom and had used to secure the end.

“And this braid . . .”  He gave it a gentle tug that was probably meant to be playful, but the suddenly deep, sensual tone of his voice vibrated its way up her spine and resonated inside her body.  “Remember all the times I pulled it when we were kids running around my parents’ backyard playing tag?”

She swallowed hard and nodded.  “Yeah.” At that young age, yanking on her hair had been a way to antagonize her, and it worked.  “You’d make me so damn mad.”

He chuckled, the sound like warm honey sliding down her skin, seeping inside her.  “And then years later, when I’d come over to your house at night and call up to your bedroom—”

“Rapunzel, let down your hair,” they said in unison and laughed.  Unlike the fairy tale, he’d climbed up the tree next to the house and had managed to make his way inside her window.

“I want to cut it so badly,” she said.

He blinked at her in surprise.  “Your hair?”

She nodded.  “Yes. It’s just so . . . cumbersome.”

His hand fell away from the end of her braid.  “Then why don’t you?”

“Because all this hair is part of my image and my mother and advisors would have a heart attack if I cut it as short as I’d like.”

“If it’s what you really want, then you should do it,” he said with a casual shrug.  “It’s your hair, not theirs. Besides, what are they going to do once it’s gone?”

He made it all sound so easy and simple, but it was always the fear of her mother’s wrath and any related consequences of her actions that stopped her from walking into an unknown salon, where her personal stylist did not work, and ask for someone to chop it off to her shoulders.  Unfortunately, she’d never had the guts to follow through on that particular inclination.

Liza's Review:

I love a second chance romance story, and Erika Wilde totally knocked it out of the ballpark with Unforgotten Passion. As with each of the stories in the Dirty Sexy Fairy Tale series, Unforgotten Passion is a modern day telling of a fairy tale, and it happens to be Rapunzel, which is one of my favorites

Raevynn Walsh and Collin Donovan grew up next door to each other and even dated for a while before Raevynn left and became a super star pop star. I absolutely adored Rae and Collin's second chance romance. While both had dated others in the 7 years they were apart, neither had ever really forgotten the other. Rae has spent her life pretty much being controlled by her mother. When she leaves the Wilder Way Fairy Tale Ball with Collin, she gets to make decisions for herself for the first time in years. 

I loved seeing Rae come into her own once she is away with Collin. It's like she needed the push of seeing the one man she loved to take back her life finally. Yes she was happy with her music, but until she left with Collin, it was easier to live her status quo. I loved Collin let Rae just be herself and be there for her. Even after 7 years apart, they still had amazing chemistry and I had all the happy sighs the more time they were together. I loved they understood each other completely even after so many years apart. I loved that being with Collin again seemed to give Rae the courage to take control of her life so she could live it to the fullest.

I loved each and every moment of this story and can't wait to re-read it and fall in love with it all over again. I've loved each story in the Dirty Sexy Fairy Tale series so far, and can't wait to see where Ms. Wilde takes us with future stories.

SEXY LOVE (A SEXY SERIES NOVELLA)

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a new story in her Sexy series… 

Learning curves have never been so off-limits. 

Professor Shane Warden is on the verge of getting tenure. He never thought he'd see the day, after a false accusation from a student years ago that nearly destroyed his career, and decimated his ability to trust. But the moment he walks into class and lays eyes on the seductive blonde with legs that go on forever and lips he immediately wants to kiss, he knows he’s in trouble. 

This time for real. 

Single mom Amber Davis is finally living her dream of going back to college. In the ten years since she dropped out to have a baby--and recover from his father's death--it's been the goal that always felt just out of reach. Until now. But one look at her hot, sexy professor, and Amber is head over heels in lust. It doesn’t take long before their attraction blazes out of control. 

Neither of them can afford a forbidden affair. 
Yet it's the one thing they are powerless to stop. 

It will only take one hint of a rumor to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve... and in this case the rumors are true. 

**For fans of Carly’s Sexy Series, Sexy Love is book four in that series.** 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Liza's Review:

With Sexy Love, readers get the story of Levi Bennett's girlfriend Amber Davis, who had discovered she was pregnant after Levi had died in the hazing incident. I loved this novella length story in the Sexy Series from Carly Phillips.

I had always wonder what happened to Levi's girlfriend and son following his death, and I absolutely loved Amber was going back to school to have a better life for herself and LJ. I adored the meet cute between Amber and Shane and honestly loved them from the very beginning. They had a real-world issue of a professor not getting into a relationship with a student and I loved how it was handled. I never had an issue with them together, especially as Amber was an older student, and I loved the connection between them from the moment they met.

As Sexy Love was a novella length story, everything moved really fast, and it worked perfectly for me. I loved Shane and Amber got one another from the beginning and worked around the restraints of professor/student relationship to a romantic relationship. Carly Phillips once again gave her readers a beautiful and emotional story and I can't wait for her next story.

Synopsis

I do.

She can’t believe in anything more.  
Her son and her job are the center of her world.
That’s all Tess needs.

Until Declan Riley falls into her arms…
literally.

His tattoos and his Irish accent are enough to melt her panties
His diagnosis? That’s enough to break her heart.
But Tess can help him get the care he needs…

All she has to do is marry him.

Declan knows he should keep Tess at arm’s length.
What they have is temporary. Necessary.
And he knows from experience just
how dangerous getting close can be.

Excerpt 
“Ah, I do love wedding duty,” the judge said, not batting so much as a single lash at the fact that both Tess and Declan were clad in jeans and T-shirts or that one of their “witnesses” was still in diapers. “I’m Judge Esposito, and I’ll be presiding today. Shall we get started?”
“Yes, please,” Tess said. They went through a couple of legalities to establish that she and Declan were both who they claimed to be and that they had witnesses who were who they claimed to be.
Then Judge Esposito threw out a whammy. “Tess. Declan. You may join hands as you recite your vows.”
Oh, hell. She had just watched Charlie and Parker get (re) married. How had she forgotten this part?
Thankfully, Declan covered her hesitation by smoothly scooping up both of her hands. His fingers closed around hers with the perfect amount of pressure to let her know he was there, steady, but not so much that he overpowered her. It put her oddly at ease, and before Tess knew it, Judge Esposito was on to the ceremony. The words were boilerplate, and Tess had, of course, heard them before at her own failed wedding, not to mention a dozen more for family and friends. They got through the intention part easily enough, needing only to say “I do” when called upon. Tess even managed to repeat the judge’s words about richer or poorer and sickness and health, then slide the ring Connor had given her onto Declan’s finger, without much fanfare from her heart. She was a doctor. Sickness and health were the whole point. 
But then it was Declan’s turn, and her heart delivered a completely unexpected bitch-slap before galloping through her chest.
“I, Declan, take you, Tess, to be my wife. To have and to hold”—he slid his right hand from her left to cup her chin in illustration, and making Charlie and Harlow and Tess’s traitorous lady bits sigh in unison. This is an act to make things look genuine. The words don’t really apply to you, she reminded herself sternly, meeting his gaze head-on as he continued with the script—“in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer”—Declan’s thumb swept over her cheek. God, he was really selling it—“and I promise my love to you. With this ring, I thee wed.”
He slipped the ring he’d chosen onto her finger, gathering her hands in his again as Judge Esposito took the lead.
“Love is the reason you’re here today, and it should be the core of your marriage.”
Tess’s pulse sped up. Speaking of words that didn’t apply. Still, this had to look legit, so she kept her expression steady, and—whew—Declan did the same.
“But it also will take trust,” Judge Esposito continued. “To know in your hearts you want the best for each other. It will take dedication, to stay open to one another; to learn and to grow together even when it’s not always so easy to do.”
The thump of her heartbeat pressed faster against her ears. “It will take faith, to be willing to go forward to tomorrow, never really knowing what tomorrow will bring. In addition, it will take commitment, to hold true to the journey you both now pledge to share together. Tess and Declan.” The judge smiled so warmly that for a tiny, split second, Tess felt a ribbon of warmth uncurl in her chest, too.
“In so much as the two of you have agreed to live together in matrimony, have promised your love for each other by these vows, I now declare you to be husband and wife.” Judge Esposito’s smile grew even bigger as he added,
“You may now kiss the bride.”
