This Round for LoveFirst, I really wanted to have This Round for Love (Champion Hearts Book 2) done this month for release, but life got a bit in the way. So, I did the next best thing. This Round for Love is available for pre-order on all Amazon stores.

Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA  | Amazon AU and all Amazon stores.

The scheduled release date is April 10….but you never know – I could be done earlier.

Take a peek at the blurb and except below.

Will Ford’s obsession with victory ruin his chances with Darcy?

When Darcy Winthrop travels to Miami to organize a mixed martial arts event, she imagines sunshine, sand and maybe even a holiday fling if she stumbles across the right guy.

What she finds is a hot brawler with something to prove.

Ford Cooper’s a man on a mission. MMA made him a star, but a major injury put him in the “has-been” category. He’s determined to fight his way back to the top one punch at a time and love is a distraction he doesn’t want.

Now Darcy’s in for a fight—a fight to keep Ford in the ring without breaking her heart.

Excerpt:

Ford looked into my eyes. “Darcy, do you want me to kiss you?”

The question surprised me, but I guess it shouldn’t have. It was what I’d been angling for and Ford seemed about as straightforward as they come. “Yes, I think I do. Is that unprofessional?”

“No. I want to kiss you, too.”

Ford leaned in and my eyes fluttered shut. I swayed as his lips met mine, barely touching. Warm mobile lips nibbled my mouth and then his arms were around me, pulling me into his chest.

Hot, tingling flashes of arousal spiked through me. I wiggled against him and he deepened the kiss, sliding his tongue to the corner of my lips and pressing inside. I gasped as his tongue met mine.

Ford’s hand gripped my rear, lifting me up. My fingers dug into his shoulders and I shook. This is what I’d been wanting for so long—the sudden whiplash of desire and the promise of more to come.

The door clanked and we broke apart. I looked up the aisle and saw Greta striding in. When she got close, she raised her hand. “I got a call. They’ll be an initial crew here in a few hours. I wanted to let you know the good news.” Greta’s gaze darted between us with speculation.

My lips were swollen and my cheeks felt hot. “That’s great.”

Ford nodded. “I’m expected at a local gym. There’s a guy I want to train with. I’ll leave you to it.” He turned away and walked up the aisle, his stride eating up the distance to the door.

I hid my disappointment, swallowing the words on my lips. I wanted to say “Will I see you later” or “Let’s have dinner,” but not in front of Greta.

Greta continued to talk but her words weren’t registering in my brain. My brain was mush. My whole body was mush—or rather it was a bundle of tingling pleasure. Ford put more into a kiss than I’d ever experienced before with such a simple touch.

Yeah, kissing Ford was anything but simple and I couldn’t wait to do it again.

But Zane doesn’t want to remain a stranger. He pursues Jo until she can’t say no, but neither can she say yes. She’s had her fill of men who take risks for a living, and Zane is a mixed martial arts fighter at the top of his sport. Can Jo love not only the man but the fighter as well?

Top Five Ways to Kindle an Autumn Romance #FridayFive

© R. L. Wolverton | Dreamstime Stock Photos

No matter where you are (in the northern hemisphere anyway), it is fall. Though the weather is pretty much the same year round where I am, that doesn’t prevent me from getting into the spirit of some wonderful fall activities.

Here are some suggestions that you might enjoy with a significant other.

1.  Fall Fantasy Foliage Hike with Passionate Picnic

In certain geographic areas, fall is truly a beautiful time of year. The summer heat has faded away but jeans and a sweater are still adequate protection against the elements. The trees fire up a spectacular display of color as they go dormant, exiting for the season in blazing glory. Take your sweetie and enjoy a last outdoor hoorah before the chill of winter sets in. Now is a great time for hiking and biking. The weather is cool and the scenery plentiful. Fill a picnic basket with hearty fare and head out! Just remember to pick a private spot when you spread out that picnic blanket.

2.  Sexy Snuggling on the Hearth

Is there anything more enticing than a roaring fire on a chilly day? Yes! How about snuggling with your honey in front of said fire? The warmth from the flames will keep your skin toasty until you create your own heat! A hot toddy wouldn’t hurt either.

3.  Hot Harvest Hayride

The quintessential hayride has all the romantic elements – low lighting, soft cushiony space (hopefully), close quarters and layered clothing to hide your forays into the intimate space of a companion. Such naughty flirting is bound to build the anticipation for an intimate encounter…later!

4.  Frisky Football Game

When there is a snap in the air, sports fans turn to the snap of the football. Mix it up one weekend. Instead of the couch snuggle during the game, take a blanket and some hot drinks to the stadium. No one will ever guess what’s going on underneath the covers!

5.  Alluring Apple Bobbing

Don’t leave the apple bobbing to the kiddies. Instead of the traditional bobbing in the water, hang the apple from a string and go at it on opposite sides with your chosen target. This activity presents many opportunities for intimate contact J

What do you find romantic this time of year?

Malia Mallory Presents Five Tips for the Perfect Romantic Gesture #FridayFive

Young happy couple with rose, outdoorRomantic gestures are things you do to show your partner that you are thinking about him/her and also a way to show affection. The great thing is that a little goes a long way toward keeping that special connection alive. Thoughtful gestures can even stoke the fire into flames.

1. Touch. It’s easy sometimes to let distance come between us. Make a special effort to hold hands while walking. Give a kiss – a real kiss, not just a peck on the cheek, when saying hello or goodbye. Wake up a few minutes early and engage in a nice morning snuggle.

2. Communicate. Tell your partner how you feel and not just in intimate moments. Write down a heartfelt sentiment. Slip it into a place where it is sure to be found. This can be a post-it on the bathroom mirror or a card in a briefcase. How about sending an intimate text or leaving a suggestive voicemail?

3. Do Something Special. A special or unexpected action can be lovely. You know your significant other’s preferences. Make a special trip to the bakery for that well-loved pie. Cook a favorite meal. Indulge in an activity that your partner enjoys, but maybe you don’t. Do a little pampering by giving a massage.

4. Surprise. There’s nothing like the element of surprise to create a spark. Plan a romantic weekend getaway. Present your partner with a thoughtful gift like a cd of a favorite artist or tickets to a show. Have a picnic.

5. Celebrate. Don’t wait for a holiday or a big promotion. Celebrate today. Make plans to meet for lunch during the week. Break out that special bottle of wine. Make a reservation at a nice restaurant.

I think the theme of these tips is not to settle into a rut. Be mindful. Be considerate. Let your partner know how much you appreciate having him or her in your life in small ways every day.

What’s your favorite romantic gesture?

Five Tips for Creating a Romantic Staycation

Need_200x300You’d like to get away for a long weekend – away from the job, the kids and the stress. You’d also like to spend some quality time with your honey, but, if you’re like me, perhaps there’s no one to watch the little one or money is in short supply.

So what can you do?

The concept of a staycation has been with us for a few years. Forego the plane tickets and hotel rooms and save some money. Bypass the time and hassle of traveling and help your local economy. These are great concepts, but I want to offer a particular staycation idea. These suggestions are designed to foster quality time with your significant other – giving you the opportunity to reconnect. We know what that leads to right?

1.  Commit to no work – really. No emails, no cell phone, no texts, no checking in with the office. It’s possible that you have the kind of job where this just isn’t possible, but for most of us, putting away the phone and turning off the computer are a choice. Turn on the answering machine and don’t tell people you are vacationing at home.

2. Create Ambience. It might sound cheesy, but candles and music really do work. They relax you and set a mood. You might also consider some very comfy lounging pajamas…no reason not to be comfortable right?

3.  Do Activities Together. Read a book to one another. It could be some favorite poetry or even something naughty. Snuggle up on the couch and have a movie marathon. Break out the cards and games. Ever try strip cribbage? If you need to get the blood moving, take a walk around the neighborhood or hike in a nearby park. Break out the bicycles. Take a swim. If the pool is yours, try skinning dipping!

4. Pamper Each Other. This is the time for back massages and foot rubs. Maybe try jumping in the tub or shower together. Make a special effort to make some of the foods your significant other enjoys. Remember – little gestures go a long way.

5. Have a Night on the Town. At some point during your staycation, have a date night out. This might be dinner at a favorite restaurant followed by a show or maybe some dancing and a late night coffee at a bistro. What are the activities you used to enjoy together? Sitting in the back of the movie theatre? Parking in the car over a picturesque view? This is the night to tap into what brought you together.

What activities reconnect you with your partner?
