Five Sweet and #Sexy #Romance Short Stories!

Happy Friday, everyone! The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy for me. I've submitted a couple of manuscripts to different publishers and now begins the fun of biting my nails and waiting to hear. To keep from driving myself crazy, I've been reading some awesome books.

As much as I enjoy reading, I'm not always in the mood for a full-length book or even a novella. Short and sweet (or sexy) fits the bill exactly. Sometimes you want something you can enjoy when you're riding the bus or waiting in the doctor's office. Well, fire up those ereaders, friends! Today I want to share some short reads with you that you can get for less than two dollars. And since it's been a while since I've pimped any of my own work on the blog, I couldn't resist including a shortie of my own on the list :-).

May Day Magic by Beverly Breton  (Kindle exclusive sweet romance)

Single mother and school nurse Diane Avery is on overload, too busy caring for her children and everyone else's to consider any TLC for herself. Her back seizes in front of hunky nursery owner Marc Stafford, and he rushes to her aid. Self-sufficient Diane laughs off the attention.

After a divorce, with his son now heading to college, Marc Stafford is faced with an empty home and heart. Intrigued by the school nurse, Marc plans a May Day surprise to bring them together.

Can Diane let Marc into her world? Can Marc find the courage to step out of his role of single father and bachelor? Will a simple tradition dedicated to flowers and affection bring the two together and set them on a path to love?

Riding Rodeo by Emma Lai (Contemporary western erotic romance, with menage elements)

The last person Amanda Goodson expected to walk into her bakery was Sean Cassidy, the bareback bronc rider who rode her hard one night and left without a good-bye the next day. Since then, she'd sworn off one-night stands and cowboys, but one look at the man she called Rodeo leaves her hankering for another ride. 

A nasty injury ended Sean's career and left him with nothing but time to contemplate past sins, especially the most damning one...walking out on Amanda, the one woman he couldn't forget. Eager to right the biggest mistake of his life, he finds Amanda--and learns he has competition. Never one to back down from a challenge, he offers to fulfill her darkest fantasy--taking two cowboys for a ride. 

When the dust settles, will Sean's plan to win Amanda's trust backfire or will she risk her heart for one more shot at Riding Rodeo?

Explicitly English by Rachel Leigh (Contemporary erotic romance)

Laura Markham needs to forget. Just for awhile. Be someone else. Live as her parents would have wanted. And for Laura, that means escaping the city for the English countryside and leaving her inhibitions behind. 

British stockbroker, Stephen Cambridge knows that by going home to his country retreat two days early, he's likely to startle the new interior designer. And when he discovers she's the woman who masturbated for him on the train, Stephen will do anything to convince her to stay with him forever…

Hog Tied and Branded by Anita Philmar (Contemporary western erotic romance)

Suzi Calworth has to find the courage to face the man she loves and tell him she’s pregnant with another man’s child.

Clint Malone loves Suzi and regrets driving her away. Yet, can he tell her the truth about himself and risk losing her forever? 

Can they both find the strength to reveal their secrets and let love heal their heartache?

Irresistible Impulse by Nona Raines (Contemporary lesbian erotic romance)

Ordinarily, Tania Talcott wouldn't be caught dead at a speed dating event, but she lost a stupid bet. Checking out the slim pickings, she's convinced the evening will be a total bust--until a classy, sensual, African American woman enters the room. A woman Tania met briefly once before and never forgot. 

Latisha Hobbs is only attending this event to support her young cousin, who's ready to start dating again. Latisha's heart has been on ice for quite some time. But she finds herself immediately--and strongly--enticed by the friendly overtures of a vivacious redhead. Or are they more than friendly?

Fueled by an irresistible impulse, Tania wastes no time getting to know the beautiful mocha woman. Latisha is drawn to Tania as well, but memories of an unhappy love affair make her reluctant to act. These two opposites definitely attract, but will their differences be too much to overcome

Hope you enjoy some of these shorties when you have half an hour to spare! Happy reading and...

Have a wonderful weekend, all!
