Lead Him Not into Temptation is an adult contemporary novel and is not intended for younger readers due to mature content.

Colorado native M.L. Steinbrunn is new to the professional literary community, but has been in love with the world of fictional characters and plot twists since she was a child. Writing short stories and reading anything she could get her hands on, it could be argued that her hobby borders on an obsession. 
She works full-time as a middle school and high school educator and coach in rural Colorado where she and her husband are raising their three young children. Through education she has enjoyed guiding others on their paths and helping students build their stories. After countless evenings of discussing story ideas, it was her husband who encouraged her to follow her own path and publish her first novel. 
She recently published her debut romance novel Forgive Us Our Trespasses, which was released in March of 2014. It is the first in a series of intertwined stand-alone novels. Book two, Lead Him Not Into Temptation will be released in August of 2014. 
In her free time M.L. enjoys travelling, Amazon one-clicking, watching movies, chauffeuring her children to their one and half million activities, and people watching. 
She would like to add a big thank you to everyone that has been overwhelmingly supportive of this incredibly scary yet exciting journey.

I’m a Happily Married, MUM of 2 very loved children. One is a teenager… so far (fingers crossed) a great one.
I LOVE Music… I should do as I am the daughter of Musicians; I was reared with a Guitar in one hand and a pen in the other.
I’m originally from London and am now living somewhere, in the Irish countryside, with cows (the four legged kind) as neighbours. We live on a small farm in a village (no I do not DO milking or anything farmy… I have nails lol).
I’ve had the big high-flying career and gave it and London. up for ‘LOVE’ (yep sucker lol) and would do it again a hundred times over to marry and have babies.
I have lived in Ireland for the last sixteen years and I love the peace and quiet that we have here, it’s a wonderful place to raise children. I do NOT own wellies (gumboots) as the city girl that is still trapped in me, won’t allow it… SO… I wear riding boots instead. I may actually be the unofficial Imelda Marcos of Ireland with the amount of shoes I own (insert Shoegasm here).
I began writing professionally in January 2013 and now I’m releasing my fourth book. I write fun, naughty, not so hearts and flowers stories. My all time favorite writing hero is Clive Cussler. I love action and suspense, which probably influences my own writing greatly; hence I’m NOT a hearts and flowers kind of girl.
I love humour and try to use it as often as I can in any situation… I think life is too short to NOT try anything new. I’m a fun, loyal person and believe in Karma, so I try to treat people how I would like to be treated… after all, it takes much more to be nasty to someone rather than just to be nice…You can contact me at Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SamanthaFontien

“Put your head down. Don’t move.” She sinks back behind her laptop, her hand covers the top of her face as though it’s some sort of camouflage that will make her unrecognizable to someone.
We might live in Manhattan, but you would be surprised how small it is. All these people and poor Lexi always runs into someone she doesn’t want to see. 
“You’re insane. I’m enjoying my breakfast.” I lift my bowl of granola, shaking it at her. Now she’s going to know what it’s like to be ignored.
“Alexandria Montgomery, isn’t this place the absolute best for breakfast.” I flash a wide smile at her. 
Her face softens.
“Alright, if that’s how you want to play it,” she smirks, sitting back in her chair. 
The panic is stripped from her face to reveal a new look of… arrogance? Looks like she has successfully avoided an awkward encounter, and I can go back to window watching. 
“It is.” I laugh at her. I’m a little disappointed she wasn’t caught in one of her situations. I could have worked that into my lack of desire to go on this date tonight.
Leaning forward over my bowl of granola to take a bite, I start to chew when a pair of black leather shoes land on the floor next to me, and my blood runs cold. My eyes slowly follow the gray suit pants up as the scent of cedar begins to flow around me causing my insides to become heated. 
I’ve never been a fan of this involuntary reaction, and I also hate when Lexi’s right. What did I do to deserve this?
Without looking up any further at the man standing next to me I sit up straight in my seat.
Maybe if I ignore him he will go away. Who am I kidding? He’s a jackass.
Inhaling a deep breath to calm myself down I begin to cough and instantly regret it since the air that now fills my lungs and floats around me is air that has been tainted by him. My eyes stay connected with Lexi’s – we stay motionless watching each other until she covers her delighted smile with her cup. 
“Hello Pet.” My stupid skin begins to prickle with excitement from his deep voice. “To what do I owe the pleasure?” he asks, making sure to put proper emphasis on the word pleasure. 
Such a Simon thing to do. 
“Nothing, I wasn’t aware you came here, Simon.” I cross my arms over my chest. 
I don’t care how good looking people think he is, I’m not looking at him.
Let me give you a little visual detail on the jackass standing next to me. Simon McAllister is not your typical wealthy bachelor. Well… that is unless your typical wealthy bachelor dresses as though he’s either on his way from a modeling shoot or some college girl’s sorority house. You see while most men, men of his stature, dress in fine suits and carry themselves in a way that commands everyone’s attention, Simon dresses as though he’s stuck somewhere between mogul and frat boy. He doesn’t command attention because he doesn’t have to, he just earns it… it’s irritating. Now don’t be mistaken, he wears suits, and they are of the finest quality, fitted perfectly, all that jazz. But under that impeccably tailored suit coat is never a finely pressed crisp white button down and tie. No, this moron keeps it simple with his cashmere sweaters and thin tie that hangs loosely around his neck in a fashion that says “you lead the way”. I don’t have to actually look at him to know this. I saw him on page six not that long ago fashioning this very look. 
I need an exit plan… and my bill. Dammit, where is a waiter when I need one
“Really? That’s strange since…” He’s cut off by Lexi.
“You know what, we have to go… big day, you understand,” Lexi interrupts him. “And Sidney here has a date tonight… a big one.” She looks up at him with a big satisfied smile on her face. 
Oh Lexi how I love you so! I take back all the mental licking of your utensils and every other mean thing I was thinking. 
“Yes I do. Also my name is Sidney, perhaps you have forgotten that? It isn’t babe, or sweetheart, and it is certainly not, nor will it ever be ‘Pet’ as you so eloquently put it. It’s Sidney.” The stress of him being next to me is causing my voice to raise higher and higher as I speak. 
He’s quiet for a second. 
Look who won that round! 
Lexi gives me a thumbs up, sitting back comfortably, drinking her coffee and continues to watch the show.
“A date? So you will be attending your parents’ charity event then?” He disregards my outburst. 
I know I just spoke out loud because Lexi heard me. Let me try again.
“No, I will not be attending any of my parents’ charity events… ever.” I look around for a waiter keeping sure not to make eye contact with him.
“Ever?” The tips of his fingers catch my chin gently, turning it toward him as he leans down. 
My heart freezes in my chest from the contact. I give my best appearance of indifference when I meet his beautiful dark blue eyes. It’s always harder to act aloof when I have to look directly at him. His lips turn up, a flicker of amusement in his eyes. He knows exactly what he’s doing, this is all just a game to him. 
I give myself exactly five seconds to glance over him and just as I suspected, there is his fine suit with his darker gray sweater under it. His ink black messy hair looks like he just came from getting laid. 
Male whore. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a gorgeous male whore, but a male whore none the less. 
Without thinking I inhale his heavy scent that seems to be circling around me again. Did I just swoon? I’m supposed to look appalled! I hope he didn’t just catch that. Okay, hate. We hate this man. Heart stop racing, and eyes don’t you dare drop to his lips. 
With a raised brow I reply. “Ever,” I deadpan. 
A quick jerk of my chin frees it from his grip. 
I’m just going to go back to eating and pretend as though he isn’t standing here making me hormonally insane. I need to hold onto the fact that he’s an asshole, and I detest him. 
“Aren’t you late for something?” I try to make it obvious that I don’t want him here without being rude as I take a bite of my granola.
“I’m never late for anything, Pet. My day is perfectly planned.” He gives a light laugh. 
Bouncing my head side to side while I continue to chew, I make a face at how perfect he is. 
“Are you eating bird seed?” He lifts the bowl from the table to inspect it just as I go to take another spoonful. 
Does he not understand that he was just dismissed?
“It’s—none of your business. I am eating and working, and you are unwelcome, so leave.” I reach out for the bowl but he pulls it out of my reach. Snatching my spoon from me he takes a bite. 
What the hell! Does this man have no boundaries?
“This is… interesting…” He taps the spoon against the side of the bowl. “Healthy…” He ponders it while taking another bite. 
My teeth clench together as I watch him mock me. 
“I’m not a fan.” He frowns and hands it back to me. 
Seriously? Who the hell asked him?
“I’m sorry but I don’t remember saying Simon, please taste this. Lex, do you remembering me asking him to try this?” I can feel my temper building. 
You are in control… You are in control. What am I saying? I’m not in control… I mean I am… I just don’t need to chant it now. He needs to leave.
With a wide smile she replies, “To be honest I wasn’t listening. I was looking out the window admiring how the spring looks.” She throws my words back at me. 
My eyes widen as hers reveal the smile she is sporting behind her coffee. I want to grab that stupid cup off her and smash it.
“You’re dead to me,” I mumble lifting my coffee. 
“You have nothing to worry about, Lexi, she won’t do anything,” he says. 
The two of them begin to laugh. 
“You know where you can go Simon?” I begin when a waiter, our waiter to be exact, finally comes over but not for us, he comes to inform Simon that his order is ready. I don’t even care that I couldn’t tell Simon where to go because he is now leaving. 
“Well this was fun, thanks for stopping by. Next time you can pretend like you don’t see me. It won’t hurt my feelings I promise.” I look up at him with a bright smile. 
“That my dear, would be rude of me.” He taps my nose with his finger. “I’m sure I will see you again soon.” He sends me a panty-dropping smirk. Panties, stay where you are. 
“Yay me…” I muse.

Just when she thinks she’s forgotten Riff, she’s forced to see him again when her best friend, Lanie, ropes her into being a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding to Black Falcon front man, Noel. 
Sparks fly instantly between Aubrey and Riff when they’re forced to reunite, and suddenly she finds herself caught between the man that’s good for her and the one who completely rocks her in every way.

Fall by Rachel Van Dyken
If you look up British in the dictionary…A-list celebrity Jamie Jaymeson’s name would be next to it. Along with charming, witty, man-whore, and a lot of other adjectives that he wouldn’t appreciate being attached to his name. 
He has everything in the world going for him. 
Until fate decides his number’s finally up. 
Caught in a compromising position that really wasn’t his fault to begin with (really it wasn’t)—Jaymeson’s been told by his agent to lay low in the one town he swore he’d never return to—the seventh circle of hell, known by its residents as Seaside, Oregon. 
Two months? He can do anything for two months. Especially if it means getting a part in the new book-to-movie series that has girls all over the world swooning. 
Play nice? Keep it in his pants? Please. He played an alien once—he was going to totally rock it. 
Until a certain someone who he may or may not have publicly humiliated—rejected, then humiliated again, suddenly pops up next door. 
Self control has a way of flying out the window when the one girl you can’t have—is suddenly dangled right in front of you. 
But Priscilla isn’t just off limits—she’s a pastor’s daughter and barely legal to boot. So Jaymeson does the one thing he swore he’d never do—he tries to be friends. With a woman. 
Only, it’s exactly what he needs. 
Until suddenly, he craves more. 
He wants to date her. 
She wants to date someone else. 
He wants to kiss her. 
She asks him to give her lessons for her new boyfriend. 
When opposites attract, sometimes the only option you have is to leap—and trust the fact that when you fall—that special someone falls too.

- Cover Reveal – Reviving Haven by Cory Cyr

Releasing July 31, 2014
The only man Haven Wells ever loved left her broken, feeling emotionally battered and imperfect. Seven years later she’s found solace in the bookstore she owns, finding love between the pages of the books she reads. Haven has adapted to a life without love or men, living vicariously through her best friend and roommate.
He’s Perfect. Just ask him. Latch McKay is gorgeous, rich and successful. A famous graphic designer, he’s well known for the video games he creates. However, he’s also known for the trail of women he leaves behind. Latch is the walking, talking definition of wanton sex.
When Latch sees Haven at a party it’s lust at first sight. A night of intoxicated passion leaves him wanting her so much he’s almost willing to give up his man-whore crown. Haven has no idea why this gorgeous and much younger man wants her. After two weeks of Latch stalking her…his version of wooing — Haven has tried everything to make him go away.
But, Latch doesn’t give up, and Haven finally agrees to one date. If Latch can break through Haven’s walls, he just might have a chance to keep her. Unfortunately Latch has a secret of his own. As Haven’s walls begin to crumble, Latch’s dark secret begins to emerge.

I began writing music and poetry at an early age. My love of music became my sole focus, and I spent quite a few years as the lead singer for many local rock bands. In high school, I was fascinated with the macabre and started writing science fiction and horror stories so dark they earned me the nickname “Gory Cory.”
After years of writing dark tales, I never thought in a million years my first two finished manuscripts would be Adult Romance.
I am a devout vegan as well as an animal lover. I collect antique weapons and crosses(I still have that dark-side).
My books are ALL ADULT 18+ Bite & Release(My 1st book) was published 5/31/14

Turning around to go back inside my laughter stops. I don’t feel the crystal dish slip from my fingers. I just stand here… frozen.
There’s yelling and noise but it’s all muffled… like that night. 
I close my eyes. 
Breathe… Breathe… 
My heartbeat pounding through me the muffled sounds become clear and I hear Morgan screaming at me.
“Jesus, Sidney! Do you want Mom to kill you?” 
Blinking feverishly I look down to see she caught it just as it was about to smash. I can’t bring myself to worry about that right now. I look back up and watch as Simon, the boy I was so in love with just moments ago pulls away from a girl that up until this point was my best friend. A girl I thought I was going away to college with, a girl who knew how I felt about him. 
This is not happening… at my party no less…
“Breathe… You’re in control…” Molly whispers, her hand connecting with my back startles me. 
You know when you witness something and you know you should look away but you can’t because it’s one of those moments, those damn life changing moments that your brain makes sure to take notes on so that nothing is missed, no detail is overlooked, and nothing is ever forgotten. It’s one of those moments in life that you know instantly will repeat itself over and over in your head until it eventually causes you to change. It will break you and from those pieces in that moment will rebuild you. I thought that night was my moment, but I guess that was just a giant stepping-stone to this. Maybe I was wrong about fate… maybe it forgot about me.
My pulse continues to beat through my body in a deep throbbing rhythm, the darkness of a black out building up. He steps back from her, slightly turning his head in my direction and I know he knows I’m standing here, he just refuses to turn and look at me. I’m so dumb, I should have seen this coming. I mean did I really think I was so different from any of my predecessors? Women, real women, who have actually given themselves to him completely only to find out the next morning they’re just one in a crowd of many. Nothing special and forgotten about as soon as he received whatever it was he wanted from them. 
I did… because he told me I was. We had a plan…


Emersyn Vallis is a first time author with Adjournment being the first book in the Fated Series. Currently residing on the east coast with her husband and three children she is typically mistaken for being quiet and reserved her friends often describe her as a spastic spider monkey and always the first to be there with her quick wit to pull you back up when you’re feeling down. After reading as a hobby for most of her life it wasn’t until she had discovered R. L. Mathewson’s ‘Neighbor from Hell Series’ and Tara Sivec’s ‘Playing with Fire Series’ that she came up with the idea to fuse comedy and suspense together and her passion for writing was born.

At Your Back and Call Cover
“So, what other services do you offer, Hallen?”
How many times had I been asked that question? How many times had I answered it?
She laid her hand on my knee, her gaze sharp, questioning, lustful—and ashamed.
The light was not kind to her, emphasizing hard lines around her mouth, the overly tight skin of her forehead.
She should have chosen a bar with softer lighting. Candlelight hides a multitude of sins. Except my sins are all on the inside.
When I’d arrived at the designated restaurant earlier in the evening, she’d been careful to conceal her age. Maybe she thought I’d care. I didn’t. I gave my name to the hostess and asked her to let Ms. Mandelsohn know that I had arrived.
It was always interesting meeting a new client—a challenge, too—getting to know her, putting her at ease, helping her to feel comfortable, working out what she wanted from a date. She needed to feel safe with me, like I’d take care of her in all senses of the words. And talking is underrated as a method of foreplay. Clients often said they felt like they’d known me for years. Well, they knew the part I showed them, which wasn’t the same thing at all. But it was enough to let me fuck them.
They didn’t always want sex—or they said they didn’t. Once they’d met me, they often changed their minds.
She joined me at the window, a large glass of Cognac in each hand. I accepted one and clinked it against hers.
She smiled and took a sip, her eyes thirsty and impatient.
“What are you thinking?” she asked, quietly.
“That it’s a long way down.”
She laughed, tension seeping around the edges of the sound. “I hope you’re not thinking of jumping to get away from me.”
I turned to look at her, deliberately running my eyes up and down her body. “No, I’m not thinking that.”
Her lips parted in a small gasp.
I took the glass out of her hand and placed it on the table with mine.
Belinda. Her name was Belinda.
“What do you like, Belinda?”
“Um, I…”
“You can tell me,” I said, as if we were sharing a secret. “Do you want me to touch you slowly?” I drifted my fingers down her arm, stroking her skin. “Or do you want me to take you hard?” I gripped her wrist in one hand and tipped her chin up with the other, so she was forced to look at me.
I saw her moisten her lips and swallow.
“Hard,” she whispered.
Yeah, that’s what I’d guessed. You learned to read people—women—in this job.
She licked her lips again and tottered forward, her balance becoming uneven with an alchemy of alcohol and lust.
“Do you want me to take you at the window, baby? Press your beautiful breasts against the cold glass while I fuck you. Anyone looking up would know what a bad, bad girl you are. Anyone could see.”
She choked on a laugh and I could tell she was considering it. My guess was she’d go for the bed. Older women usually did.
Have you ever wondered what money smells like? I mean real money. Not just a lot of money, but vats of money, swimming pools of money, whole oceans of money. It smells of sweat and sex, wrapped in silk.
That’s the scent that filled my lungs walking into the Casino de Monte Carlo.
The building was bathed in bright yellow lights, turning the white stucco into a shimmering facade. A marble fountain seemed to pour molten gold into the piscina at its base.
And the women. My God, the women. Birds of Paradise in gowns of every color, shade, texture and tone. You noticed the dresses first—the faces above were all the same—rich, privileged, aware.
“By the way, Emma, what’s it for?”
“The fundraiser. Which charity is it for?”
“Christ! I don’t know!” she said, distracted by a blonde woman in skyscraper Laboutins. “Whales or tuna or goldfish or something! Who cares?”
I kept my mouth shut.
At the door, we were greeted by a well dressed staff member who knew both our names, and handed us each a $50,000 casino chip.
Fifty-thousand dollars!
Emma smiled, watching with vulpine amusement as I tried to cover up my astonished reaction.
“Enjoy!” she said, stroking my ass. “If you’re a good boy, there’ll be more where that came from.”
It must have been obvious who and what I was. I wouldn’t say I was oblivious to the barely hidden contempt from those who saw us together, but I’d learned to ignore it. The burn was a little less.
She opened the door and hesitated, her eyes alight with humor, lust and something darker.
“I want two orgasms,” she stated, matter of fact, “or I want my money back. And I have to tell you—I am not multi-orgasmic.”
She folded her arms.
“You sure about that?”
I leaned against the doorpost. “Guess I’m going home then.”
Her face fell, and I couldn’t help smiling.
“You are such a tease!” she snorted.
I closed the door behind me. “That’s the idea.”
“You have one hour,” she insisted.
“Are you timing me?” I joked.
“Um, no, it’s all I can afford,” she muttered, fiddling with her purse.
I immediately felt like shit, and she must have seen it because she shrugged apologetically.
“One hour,” I said. “Time me.”
At that point I didn’t really care whether she got her money back or not. I’d already earned half of $1600 for the evening so I had nothing to lose. And she’d issued a challenge.
I shrugged out of my jacket, draping it over the back of a chair. Slowly, I bent down to untie my shoes and pull off my socks. I caught her eye as I glanced up.
“Did you want me to leave my socks on?”
“Um, no!” Then she realized I was teasing her again. “Hallen!”
“Anything else I should know about your preferences? You know, apart from your sock fetish?”
Her laugh turned into a breathy sigh as I walked toward her.
“That’s a pretty dress, Audrey. I think it should come off—it would be a shame to spoil it.”

I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!
My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.
My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.
Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.
