SJ McCoy has been a client of mine for several years, and I admire all things SJ. She has a knack for creating a world with people who are loyal to and love their families–where romance is always brewing and wrongs are righted. The perfect escape, if you ask me.
Here’s a bit from her bio. If you’re already one of her readers, that’s awesome; If you’re not, it’s my hope that you’ll become a fan too. Check out all of her books here:https://amzn.to/2M19XNx
Hi, I’m SJ–a coffee addict, lover of chocolate, and drinker of good, red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee.
I grew up loving romance novels; my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of nonfiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago, and I returned to romance to find my escape.
I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because there’s enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships, and happily ever afters–just like the ones I write.
These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I’m not reading or writing, you’ll find me just down the road in the park–Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles, and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way.

Published by: HarperTeen

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
A princess with two futures. A destiny all her own.
Between her cruel family and the contempt she faces at court, Princess Alyrra has always longed to escape the confines of her royal life. But when she’s betrothed to the powerful prince Kestrin, Alyrra embarks on a journey to his land with little hope for a better future.
When a mysterious and terrifying sorceress robs Alyrra of both her identity and her role as princess, Alyrra seizes the opportunity to start a new life for herself as a goose girl.
But Alyrra soon finds that Kestrin is not what she expected. The more Alyrra learns of this new kingdom, the pain and suffering its people endure, as well as the danger facing Kestrin from the sorceress herself, the more she knows she can’t remain the goose girl forever.
With the fate of the kingdom at stake, Alyrra is caught between two worlds and ultimately must decide who she is, and what she stands for.
I lead the king down to the back entrance to the gardens, and we walk along between plots of dill, thyme, and chives. I wait, knowing he will speak when he is ready.
“How much does your mother confide in you?” he asks as we near the middle of the gardens.
I slide a look at him from the corner of my eye. “Enough. My lord.”
His lips quirk, the first true smile I have seen from him. “Is that honest?”
I pause beside a bed of borage. “How much do I need to know, my lord? You are here seeking a wife for your son.”
“I am,” he agrees. “How often do you participate in the discussions between your mother and the council?”
“I don’t, my lord. You should know I am not . . .” I hesitate, aware that I have no place telling this king what he should or should not know. Or jeopardizing such an alliance for my land.
I struggle to find an appropriate way to finish. “Not—it is not thought my place to attend such meetings.”
“You would never inherit the throne?”
I could inherit, it is true, but I doubt the council would allow it given my history—and certainly not now that I might marry into another royal family, one that would be happy to add our lands to their own. Either way, should my brother die, the council would certainly pass over me in favor of our nearest cousin. “It is unlikely,” I say finally.
“I doubt that,” the king says. “It has been my experience that even young men die. What you mean to say is your council would not accept you should your brother die without issue and you were yet unwed. Why?”
If he knows all the answers, why is he asking? I look him in the eye and quip, “Perhaps I am too honest, my lord.”
He laughs. “And too straightforward. You will have to learn to play with your words more.” He reaches out, his fingertips brushing my arm where my brother held me. I flinch back reflexively, as if the bruises have already darkened—as if he could see them through my sleeve. He watches me, his eyes glinting in the sunlight. “Once you are Menaiya’s,” he says, “your brother will never hurt you again.”
Intisar Khanani grew up a nomad and world traveler. She has lived in five different states as well as in Jeddah on the coast of the Red Sea. Until recently, Intisar wrote grants and developed projects to address community health with the Cincinnati Health Department, which was as close as she could get to saving the world. Now she focuses her time on her two passions: raising her family and writing fantasy. She is the author of The Sunbolt Chronicles and Thorn (HarperTeen 2020).
A dissatisfied housewife. A gun for hire. He’s not looking to fall for his client…then again, he never had much choice. Wife. Daughter. Murderer?
He was supposed to be my knight in shining armor. He was supposed to be my deliverance. But now he’s just in my way. I need him gone, but despite my best efforts, he’s still here and I’m out of ideas. It’s time to call in a professional. I just wasn’t expecting it to be him.
I’ve been in the business of killing for as long as I can remember. And business is booming. But I’m ready to leave this life behind, get a fresh start. After one last job. It should be easy, quick, in and out. But nothing is ever that simple, and I wasn’t banking on her. How am I supposed to pull this off when it means breaking my number one rule: never fall in love?
I strip out of my clothes and step into the tub, taking my time because the water is hot enough to burn. My toes protest, as does the rest of my skin as I sink in inch by slow inch. Once I’m totally submerged, I ease back and rest my head on the edge of the tub and close my eyes.
The house is quiet. A perfect silence that is only shattered by the occasional cars or emergency sirens on the neighboring main street.
That’s something else a life spent seaside would eliminate. The idea of it only grows more appealing the longer I have to imagine it. Glenn’s death is a freedom I’ve never known or known to want. Now, I crave it.
Cal. As much as I don’t want to have to rely on another person, especially another man, I’m glad I found him. From the moment we started talking, I trusted him. He’s a consummate professional, which is evident by the way he carries himself and his no-nonsense approach. He’s direct without being rude. The confidence is more than appealing.
Thoughts of Glenn’s death take a back seat as I recall Cal’s tall, lean, sexy form. Dark, curly hair shadowing carved features and eyes so deeply onyx as to be endless.
A girl could get lost in eyes like that.
I didn’t intend to do any such thing though. Once I am through with this dead-end marriage, I don’t plan to make the same mistake again. Between living with my mother throughout childhood and jumping straight into a controlling marriage, I’m going to stay happily single and in complete control of my own life.
But that doesn’t mean I won’t entertain a fantasy or two.
Cal’s handsome face doesn’t leave my mind’s eye as my hand slips beneath the water and finds its way down my body to the apex of my thighs. I’ve never had an orgasm that I didn’t bring about by myself, so the process isn’t foreign. Glenn just doesn’t know how to take care of a woman. He’s a one-trick pony, and this girl requires more than a lackadaisical wham bam thank you, ma’am.
J.C. Valentine is the USA Today and International bestselling author of the Night Calls and Wayward Fighters Series and the Forbidden Trilogy. Her vivid imagination and love of words and romance had her penning her own romance stories from an early age, which, despite being poorly edited and written longhand, she forced friends and family members to read. No, she isn’t sorry.
Living in the Northwest, she has three amazing children and far too many pets. Among the many hats she wears, J.C. is an entrepreneur. Having graduated with honors, she holds a Bachelor’s in English and when she isn’t writing, you can find her editing for fellow authors.

“What if the person who stole your heart wasn’t who you thought they were? When my parents passed away, I grew up fast. Learning to stand on my own two feet has been a challenge, but I’m making it…my way. I make no apologies for the path I’ve chosen. My choices have served me well, but no one knows the real me. Except one man. He’s a mystery to me. He’s controlling, demanding, and he has me wrapped around his little finger. Anything he wants, I’ll give it to him. The hours we share together aren’t about love. It’s just sex. Hot, dirty, passionate sex. It was never supposed to be anything more than that. Until everything changed. Now, I’m more confused than ever. The more I learn about him, the less I seem to understand. What I do know is that I’m falling, and I have the feeling when I land, it’s going to hurt…” https://apple.co/2MCRg4p

Titles: Always You ~ Only You ~ After You ~ Always Us
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: 2nd Chance Romance
Release Date: Available Now Kindle Unlimited
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Lucas was all I ever wanted, but he was the man I could never have.
All we had was friendship and my silly hope for more.
When he left and took all of that with him, I moved on. Settled. I figured that happiness wasn’t in the cards for me. Until, one night of drinks with an old “friend” gives me a hope I never expected, but don’t know what to do with.
This time, I have the chance I always dreamed about—but I’m not free to take it.
Ten years ago, Samantha was only a friend, a sweet girl I never wanted to hurt.
Now, she’s everything I want and nothing I can have.
She belongs with me, even if she’s not really mine, and I can’t settle for anything less than all of her. Now that I’ve got a second chance, I’m grabbing it with both hands.
Why did it take so long to realize that it was Always You?
I spent my life searching for love, but Evan was right there all along.
As gorgeous on the inside as he was on the outside, I never had to wonder if he loved me. He showed me with every glance, every sweet touch, every scorching kiss.
I wanted nothing more than to give him my forever—until I found out I may not have one.
Paige was the girl of my dreams.
So beautiful in every way; no one would ever compare. I feared she would never be mine, and then she became my everything. I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life.
I wanted her to be my forever. But love may not be enough.
Why do I have to say good-bye to the love of my life? How can I let you go—when it’s always been only you?
I had the happily ever after . . . until it was gone.
Three became two. And I was alone.
Our time—my time—was over. Alone was the right way to be. The only way. Life was me, my son, and my memories. Until the day I met someone who turned my lonely existence upside down.
This man made me smile, made me laugh, made me ache for his touch.
But I couldn’t.
He shouldn’t awaken feelings I resolved to bury with my husband. But he did.
I couldn’t let his presence make my heart race. I couldn’t let him into our little world, where he fit so perfectly. I couldn’t want Nick.
But I did.
I rescued people.
My family relied on me to lend a hand. Everyone thought of me as the fixer, but no one had the first clue how to fix me. Until Ellie.
The freckled beauty’s sorrow was like a well-worn shirt—easy and familiar, difficult to part with—and she wore it comfortably. And though I was hers from the moment our eyes first met, she’d never be mine. I loved her in the here and now, but how did I compete with a ghost?
How can there ever be anyone After You?
After seven years of marriage, Lucas and Samantha are still crazy, head over heels in love. But happily ever after is now overrun by a teenager in a hurry to grow up, and a toddler demanding everyone’s full attention.
With their children pulling them in every direction this holiday season, life is hectic and time alone together is at a premium. Lucas and Samantha’s only Christmas wish this year is to prove they’re still Always Us.

One of my favorite paranormal reverse harem books is FREE right now!! If you haven’t read Claimed by Gods by Eva Chase yet, then now is the perfect time! I love mythology and this is an awesome twist on the Norse mythology featuring two of my favorite gods–Loki and Thor. The addition of Hod and Baldur is great, too. I didn’t know as much about them, but of course, I had to do some research after reading this book 😉
Eva Chase is an incredible storyteller and this is one of the most unique and addictive books I’ve ever read. So far, I’ve only made it through half of the second book–due to my many amazing ARCs that had to take priority–but I can’t wait to finish and continue the series. Seriously, if you’re a fan of paranormal romance and/or mythology, you need to read this book!
The gods walk among us. And they just might steal your soul… or your heart.
I thought I’d survived everything life could throw at me. All I wanted was to keep my distance from the criminals I work for and get my little brother out of the hell that is our mother’s house.
Then I died and woke up to four stunningly hot gods telling me I’m now a valkyrie.
Sly, sharp Loki. Jovial but ferocious Thor. Dreamily compassionate Baldur. Grim and secretive Hod. They all have something to teach me. And around them, my walls start to crack.
But the gods didn’t summon me just for kicks. Their king is missing, and they need me to find him. The first three valkyries they sent on the job never made it back.
More power is awakening in me than I could ever have imagined—and the gods’ enemies are more devious than even they knew. It’s going to take every trick in the book for me to save myself, my brother, and these divine men who’re getting under my skin in the most alluring way.
I’m Aria Watson, and Valhalla ain’t seen nothing yet.
*Claimed by Gods is the first full-length novel in a medium-burn reverse harem urban fantasy series. This action-packed, heart-wrenching ride gives you a kickass heroine, four irresistible gods, and Norse mythology like you’ve never seen it before.*
Other books in the series:
Eva Chase lives in Canada with her family. She loves stories both swoony and supernatural, and strong women and the men who appreciate them. You can visit her online at www.evachase.com.
My lilapetal is dying…and I can’t save her.
The woman who brought me back to life may not live long enough to see me truly happy.
All the tests, the experiments have failed me…and I have failed her.
If I don’t devise a cure to save my alien, I’ll spend the rest of my existence on Mortuus alone.
The others believe my mate isn’t strong enough to survive. That she can’t breed and should be put back into cryosleep until she’s healed.
But I won’t allow it.
I will defy the only family I’ve ever known to save her.
Even if it means vanishing into the unknown.
She is all that matters and no amount of her protests will keep me from doing what I must to keep her safe.
