Happy Sunday, lovelies!
  I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a great one! I work for an American company and today they're treating us to lunch, so I probably won't get to your snippets until later on in the week. This week, I'm sharing another snippet from  Eagle's Seduction, my story included in Evernight Publishing's anthology, Denying the Alpha
In this snippet, Kara and Kit have accidentally run into each other and Kit had just asked her if she's getting on the elevator

Have a great day!

“Scared of riding with me?”
“No, but you’re so big I don’t want to be squashed.”
Placing her hands on her hips, she glared up at him, pretending to be angry when really she felt ashamed. Could her insult be any lamer? And damn it all, she liked big and tall and muscular, and Kit had it all. Unlike her ex, the eagle shifter probably wouldn’t have a hard time fucking her standing up, back to the wall and arms pinned above her head. Her breath shortened and her cheeks burned.
Kara, keep your thoughts together.
Kit laughed. “So you’re definitely scared.”

Eagle's Seduction

Mating was supposed to be easy.
Eagle shifter Kit Jenkins always thought that when he met his soulmate they’d embrace their passion, perform the mating ritual and live happily ever after. However, when Kara George crosses his path, he hits a brick wall. The feisty owl shifter has an agenda of her own that doesn’t include him. Luckily, Kit is always up for a challenge, especially when it comes to seducing his mate.

Her priority never was to find love.
Twenty-seven year old Kara George is months away from finally achieving her lifelong ambition of moving to France. All she needs to do is pass her exams and she’ll be on the next flight to Europe. With her finals looming, she must focus on her studies, but when she meets Kit everything comes crashing down around her.
The infuriating eagle shifter expects her to fall head over heels in love with him in a matter of hours and although she can’t deny the attraction, she’s unwilling to give up her dream for him. The problem is the animal within her is craving its mate and she is forced to find a compromise. But will it be enough?

Book Spotilght on The Beast in a Suit (A Contemporary Tale) by Elena Kincaid #officeromance #fairytale

The Beast In A Suit (A Contemporary Tale)
By: Elena Kincaid

Thanks so much for hosting The Beast In A Suit (A Contemporary Tale). This story is an office romance with a modern twist on a classic tale and the first in a brand new series. The rest of the series will take on a different fairy tale and continue with the office romance theme.


She’s no damsel. He’s no prince. Can their love still be strength enough to save them both?

Twenty years later, and the hole inside Emeline’s soul only got bigger, mourning the loss of her mother and brother and what could have been. A stranger comes along with changes to a career she loves, but will it be for the better and will he end up changing her, too?

Adam has been closed off to the world for nearly two decades, existing but not living. He doesn’t even realize the shell of a man he’s become until a woman he’s slowly falling for makes him examine his own reflection.

A modern twist on a classic tale filled with desire, passion, and one dangerous obsession. 



“You’re firing me?”
“Of course not,” he replied adamantly, finally turning to face her. “I meant what I said before. You’re very valuable to this company and you’ve more than proven it. I also meant it when I told you that you would do great on your own. I don’t want you to leave.” He took her hand in his. “I want nothing more than for you stay, but I don’t want to hold you hostage. That was unfair of me. Please, forgive me.”
The truth was, she had forgotten about his threat. With the way he turned the company around along with giving her his friendship, not to mention the fact that she was in love with him, she was happy there again. She hadn’t thought about quitting or about going out on her own. The fact that he remembered and was apologizing for it and even willing to let her go without any repercussions stunned her. She had already forgiven him a while ago.
She watched a sly smile form on his lips, a devilish gleam in his eye. “No one should have to work for an asshole.”
“Good thing I no longer think of you as an asshole.” She glanced down at their joined hands. “I would like to stay.”
“You would?” He sounded surprised, hopeful even, and the look on his face confirmed it when she raised her head.
“And what about you, Adam?” she asked. “Do you intend to stay?” She knew it was a premature question, given the fact that it would be some time before he could present a tempting sale, but she felt like she needed to know if he even considered the possibility of actually keeping the company and running it himself.
He reached out and toyed with a strand of her hair. “I’d gotten so used to working with soulless corporations, people who wouldn’t hesitate to stab each other in the back. I guess you can say I’m pleasantly surprised. Publishing Enchanted is more than a company. It’s a family.”
“You’re part of it now.”
“And I don’t think I want to give that up.” He let go of her hair and brushed his knuckles down her cheek. “I have too many reasons to stay.”
They were so close now, their faces mere inches apart. Emeline couldn’t even remember how they had gotten there, but now she only wanted to be closer. “Adam,” she whispered, right before he closed the final distance between them and kissed her.
His kiss was soft, tentative at first, as if gauging her reaction, but when she wrapped her arms around him, he deepened it, moaning into her mouth as their tongues finally met and entwined. Finally, she got her wish and fisted her hand in his thick locks. His hair was soft, just as she’d imagined. Even his beard was soft against her skin. And God, he was such a great kisser, exploring her mouth thoroughly, lips and tongues feverishly connecting.
It was her turn to moan when he pulled her onto his lap and his hands began to roam down her back, her arms, and skimming down the sides of her breasts. He stopped kissing her lips long enough to move down to her jaw, her neck, and then all the way down to that deep V in the center of her cleavage, eliciting another, much louder, moan from her.
She was so lost in him, she hadn’t even realized at first that they were no longer moving, had no idea when they had stopped. Adam took notice of it, too, and paused his attentions to her. They were both panting as they stared at one another, and this time it was Emeline who leaned in and kissed him. She whispered, “Stay,” against his lips, the ache inside her for him too great to be able to part with him.
He practically growled in response and the two of them poured months of longing into their next kiss.
“I’m going to devour every single inch of you,” he said.
Yes, please!
