Vaughn by Ella Fox & Rochelle Paige




Title: Vaughn

Series: Love Under the Lights #2
Authors: Ella Fox & Rochelle Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 16, 2019





Blurb


Gorgeous, charming, and funny, Vaughn Corbett rose far above
his less than optimal beginning to become a household name. Known for being a
dynamic and unflappable interviewer, no one was more surprised than he when he
got tongue-tied over a gorgeous blonde in the middle of a live interview.

Allie Henderson was so focused on her career that she rarely
thought about men or dating. That all changed when she came across a
silver-tongued devil on the red carpet. The moment his deep blue eyes met hers,
something inside her shifted.

Allie was there to support her best friend. Vaughn was just
doing his job. Neither of them expected the instant, magnetic attraction that
couldn’t be denied.

Would a surprise that neither of them planned on end things
before they really began?

Excerpt

The second I saw the
sexy as fuck blonde in the green dress, everything shifted. When our eyes met,
I was poleaxed. An intensely possessive feeling roared to life inside me. The
need to touch and claim her was so extreme that I struggled not to drop my mic
and go right to her. 
I was known for
being a dynamic and unflappable interviewer, yet for the first time in my
career, I fumbled for words and struggled for coherence. This was due to the
fact that the only thing I cared about was her. Only when I realized that my
segment producer had been frantically waving at me from his spot next to the
stationary camera did I remember that I had a job to do. 
Forcing myself into
host mode, I somehow went about interviewing the group of people the girl in
the green dress was walking with. I knew who each one of them was, but her name
was a mystery because she stood off to the side, and it wasn’t like I could
call her over. 
The rules on the red
carpet were simple and definitive. Talk to the talent and keep it moving.
Assistants, friends, and family members didn’t get a lot of play, even if they
were as sexy as the goddess in the green dress. It frustrated me not to know
her name, but I comforted myself with the knowledge that it would only be a
matter of time before I solved that mystery.
After I wrapped up
my pre-show hosting duties, something that took far longer than one would
imagine, I headed into the Dolby Theatre. I was seated with one of my good
friends, Liam Hall. He wasn’t nominated but was presenting, so he was in a
chill mood. Typically, we’d have shot the shit and pressed the flesh with the
people around us, but I was so busy staring at the girl in the green dress that
I didn’t have it in me to do much more than phone it in. I was smart enough to
train my eyes mostly on the stage when the cameras were rolling, but every time
the host threw to commercial, my attention went right back to her. I hated that
she was seated so damn far away in another section.
Oscar ceremonies
were known for being ridiculously long and what was scheduled as a three-hour
broadcast always went over. Sometimes by seventeen minutes, and sometimes by
eighty. I’d never hated the length more than I did then. I silently willed the
damn show to come in on time for once, but naturally, that didn’t happen. The fucking
thing dragged on longer than War and Peace.
During one of the
commercial breaks, Liam leaned over and muttered, “What’s the deal with the
sexy chick in the green dress you’re busy eye-stalking?” 
While it was true
that I was ogling her—clearly not as covertly as I’d hoped—hearing Liam refer
to her as sexy set my teeth on edge. That I had any kind of reaction to his
question was unusual. I’d had a similar response when I’d seen Dane Garrison
take her arm earlier. The only thing that calmed me down about that was the
certainty that Dane wasn’t dating her. I knew this because Dane and I were
tight. The only girls in his life on the regular were his mom, Gloria Garrison,
and his daughter, Maggie. Thank fuck I’d remembered that before I made a fool
of myself by telling him to get his goddamn hands off the blonde. I’d never
felt territorial about anyone before, but there was no denying that I
wanted—needed—her to be mine. That brought me back to Liam, who needed to know
that the goddess in green was majorly off-limits.
“Call her sexy
again, and we’re going to have a problem,” I grumbled, speaking low enough so
only he could hear me.
Sitting back, Liam
raised his brows and gave me an “are you serious” look. I dipped my head to
acknowledge that yeah, I sure as fuck was. Unbothered by his obvious amusement
about what was going on with me, I turned my attention back to the woman in
green.

The False Series by Meli Raine





Title: False Memory
Series: The False Series #1
Author: Meli Raine
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Narrators: Andi Arndt & Sebastian York
Release Date: August 15, 2019





Blurb


It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.

Not the best way to wake up, right? I work in a flower shop. I know a
funeral arrangement when I see one.

I know a killer when I see one, too. And one is standing in my hospital
room right now, straight behind the man who saved my life.

I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really
die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory.

I fake my amnesia.

Pretending not to remember a brutal attempted murder has its perks. The
killer is backing down, spending less time around me, loosening the noose.

The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me
“remember.” I hate lying to him.

But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.

Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.

In more ways than one.

Excerpt

Mom rushes into the room, moving the man aside, her face coming so close,
my eyes losing focus. I want to look at her. Want to beg her to make him leave.
Want to yell and scream and claw my way out of this bed to get away.
“Lily! Lily! It’s Mommy. I’m here, sweetie. I’m here.” Her hand goes to
mine, clasping it like she has a million times before.
This time, I squeeze. I will it. I close my eyes and send the full force
of the universe’s sense of mercy into one impulse, one set of muscle fibers,
one aching, desperate movement.
“TOM!” Mom gasps. “She squeezed my hand! Lily, did you squeeze my hand on
purpose? Do it once for yes, twice for no!”
I squeeze once.
“Oh, Lord, thank you!” Mom babbles, tears rolling down her face,
splattering on my cheek, stinging where the tape pulls my skin. “Squeeze twice
if you want to see Daddy!”
Squeeze squeeze.
“She’s awake ! She’s coming out of it! My Lily is waking up!” Mom shouts.
“We have to tell everyone! We have to keep her awake. Tom! Doctor! Help!”
I look behind her. A crew of white lab coats has appeared, jabbering. And
next to them, the man in dark clothes. I know I can squeeze.
I know it is light. I know it is.
I know something else, too.
I know who that man is.
Because that is the man who shot me in the head.
The man who wants me dead.
And his eyes are staring right into my soul.
Blink.

Blurb

She thinks she’s fooled me. But I’ve known all along.

Almost.

Lily is hiding something, a secret so big, she came out of a year-long
coma and her first instinct was to lie.

Who does that? Someone who is afraid. No—not afraid.

Terrified. And it’s my job to take that fear away.

My partner and I have spent countless man-hours hunting down the
cold-blooded killer who did this to her. Meanwhile, Lily’s spent her waking
hours recovering. Getting stronger. Getting smarter.

Staying beautiful.

Never get involved emotionally. That’s my dictate. Never get attached.

When you realize you’re caught in a triangle, it turns out there is no
exit.

Crossing a line is easy. Holding a line takes strength.

Lily’s shooter knows that she’s my weakness.

And he’s about to exploit that by breaking a line and escaping, claiming
a hostage in the process.

One I have to get back.

No matter what it takes.

False Hope is book 2 in the False trilogy by USA Today bestselling author
Meli Raine.

Excerpt

If unicorns had a flavor, it would taste like kissing Lily.
Her essence is still on the tip of my tongue as I watch the layered
response Lily has mastered. Observe her as that beautiful mind works to line
all the pieces up and execute the subterfuge, living in two selves, one ever
vigilant, one struggling to stay quiet.
For months now, I’ve felt it. Sensed it.
Now I can taste it, too. Lies have a flavor.
And God help me, I want more of the deliciousness of Lily.
But those lies come with an aftertaste, a bitter acrimony that has an
overriding power.
My own words ring in the air like a gong as I wait: When were you
going to tell me you've been faking the amnesia, Lily? Before or after I sleep
with you?
“Sleep with me?” she squeaks, the words catching me off guard. I assumed
she’d deny the lying.
Not talk about my fantasies.
“You want to talk about that?” I choke out, amused and
sickened. “You’ve been lying to me for close to a year and all you want to talk
about is sleeping with me?”
“You brought it up!”
She’s got me there.
“How about this fake amnesia bullshit, Lily? How about we talk about that before
we discuss getting sweet between the sheets?”
She blushes.
I get hard.
This—this is why I should have recused myself from this
damned assignment long ago. I knew this day would come. I knew I’d have to call
her on the lying.
Worse than that—I knew I wouldn’t be able to help myself.

This isn't how my life is supposed to end.

Then again, a case of mistaken identity got me here. No one is ever who
we think they are. Especially my kidnapper, a man whose entire life is designed
to deceive.

Powerful people want my rescuer to die. I'm just a lure. A pawn. An
object.

But objects hold meaning. Emotions attach themselves without logic.

Like love.

I now know that Duff will do everything to protect me.

If he gets here in time. And if I can hold on long enough.

Because my body can only handle so much. Pushed to the limits, it's
finally giving out. Giving way.

Giving up.

I know Duff, though.

He never will.

Blink.

Read the stunning conclusion to USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine’s
False series, told from both Lily and Duff’s points of view.

Excerpt

Being
locked in a room with a dead body is not on my bucket list.
Being
locked in a room with a faceless corpse, the dim light making his exposed,
bloody skull bones gleam like rubies, is definitely not on my wish list.
The scream
that wants to come out turns inward, helplessness stopping it somewhere in my
chest, comforted by my heart, which only wants it to go quiet. Screaming won't
fix this. I can't find an escape by making noise.
Reality has
a way of dominating.
I look down
at the dead man.
Who is
very, very real.
I move
gently on the chaise, taking the deepest breath I can, holding it for too long.
Suspending myself in time and space feels like the only out. I can't actually leave.
Second best is closing off my air supply, shutting my eyelids, not moving.
Freezing in place gives me an illusion to grasp, the fleeting seconds
important.
My hand
slides under a throw pillow. The cool haven of hidden fabric makes me shiver.
A black
spider, all too familiar, comes off the pillow my hand is under.
That makes
me shiver even more.
I jump up,
shocked by the intrusion of another living being.
The door
calls out to me.
The spider
crawls down one leg of the chaise, then makes its way dispassionately along the
tip of the dead guy's shoe.
In order to
get to the door, I have to go around the dead body. In order to move, I have to
feel the sensation of his blood on my skin. When I bend my arm, the dried blood
on my shoulders and neck crackles. It puckers, like child's glue spread over
skin and allowed to dry for fun. For amusement.
This is
anything but amusing.
