($139.00 Value)

No touching allowed …

After serving her country, Georgia Trulane craves adventure—and sex. She's set her sights on her brother's best friend—now her boss, since she took a temporary job as his nephew's live-in nanny. Only problem? Eric refuses to touch her. That doesn't stop Georgia from seducing him. But an earth-shattering encounter leaves her fully exposed, body and soul.

Eric has a long list of reasons to steer clear of the woman he has wanted for as long as he can remember. For one, he refuses to be her next thrill ride. When he claims her, it will be for good. But the attraction is undeniable, and the more they fight it, the stronger it pulls. But will it be enough to conquer their obstacles?

Adventure, especially with one particular woman even though he has a list of reasons to steer clear of her.  Success—Eric has worked hard to transform his father’s company into the largest operation in the Pacific Northwest.  Playing toy trains with his nephew.  Wild games of truth or dare on the beach.  Georgia.
Breaking the rules—he’s a do-the-right-thing kind of guy.  Ryan Gosling movies. When Georgia calls him “straightlaced.”  When it comes to her, he is anything but straightlaced.

My good intentions always led to disaster. The cold hard truth is that I was never meant to be a father to Lily. Staying in Treepoint, Kentucky for a few weeks to get to know my daughter was meant to be a time of discovery, instead I find out that she’s married to a killer and living in a sex club. I’m going to find out how to destroy The Last Riders and give Lily the future she deserves.


He thinks I’m a whore; he doesn’t know me. I’m nobody’s fool, but he thinks he’s going to use me to find The Last Riders only weakness. That’s his biggest mistake of all. There’s more to me than meets the eye. King thinks he’s too good for me, that I’m less than dirt in his eyes. What the King of Queen City is going to find out too late is that I’m his judge, and I hold his life in my hands.

Name: King
Age: 43
Occupation: Strip Club Owner
Physical Description: Tall, muscular, black hair, violet eyes.
Likes: Money, women, and being in control of Queen City.
Dislikes: Shade
Relationship Status: Single
Typical Friday Night: Watching over his club.
Drink of Choice: Expensive whiskey
Favorite Food: Steak
Favorite Song: I've Got The World On A String by Frank Sinatra
Choice of Transportation: Limousine
Boxers or Briefs: Boxer-briefs.
Best Memory to Date: Evie pole-dancing
Words to live by: What’s Stopping You

OK...Jamie Begley DOES IT AGAIN...She makes me fall in love with another guy that is not my husband.  I tell ya, I am planning to become a member of The Last Riders in another life! Maybe Jamie will want to write a New member named Lisa...hummmm.... girls are gonna LOVE King!! He was a bad ass but when it came to Evie, there was just something about her that got into his heart, and made a comfy home there..."Shit just won't go away".  (What movie is that from...hummmm)  

I found that I love Evie even more after reading KING...she is truly amazing...and I am so happy that Jamie gives us her under belly for a change!! We get to see what her back story was, and how she came about to become a Last Rider (be ready with some kleenex).

And I got to see my that just made my year...and of course we get to see all our friends in Treepoint, and visit our friends in Queens City (which is in Texas, but as I am from NY, I kept thinking they were in Queens...haha).

One of the best parts was a scene between Razor and Beth...will just melt your heart, especially if you were on #TeamBeth while reading RAZOR'S RIDE.  

If you are a fan of the Last Riders Series, then this is a Must Read, if you haven't read any of the series yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Scroll down to the Amazon Widget and BUY the series NOW!!

I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduate this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing four series of books- The Last Riders, The Dark Souls, The VIP Room, and Biker Bitches series. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother, and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be this summer. Right now I am typing away on my next story and looking forward to traveling this summer!”

$50.00 Ebook Retailer Gift Card (Winner's Choice) and Loveswept Tote

As her sizzling new series continues, Jennifer Chance sparks some serious combustion between a sexy biker and a corporate go-getter who’s ready to let her hair down. 

New grad Anna Richardson works hard—so hard that she’s given up having a romantic life. Anna has even convinced her friends that she’s dating an amazing guy—who they’ve simply never met. But now Anna has a wedding to attend and needs to produce the hottie she’s been lying about for the past six months. Enter Jake Flynn, her infuriating, motorcycle-riding, jaw-droppingly gorgeous neighbor, who’s more than willing to fake it for a weekend. In fact, Jake won’t be satisfied until things get real.

Though Jake is only playing the role of adoring boyfriend, he’s starting to feel the heat, and judging by Anna’s sweet blush, so is she. Letting chemistry this intense go to waste would be a real shame. Soon, though, the thin line between fantasy and reality fades. Jake may not be what every buttoned-up fast-tracker wants, but he’s sure as hell what Anna needs. And if she takes a ride with him, their adventure never has to end.

Also in the Rule Breakers series: ROCK IT by Jennifer Chance!

Jennifer Chance shares a heartwarming tale about finding the middle ground between living and "LIVING" and Jake Flynn was the guy who showed Anna how to LIVE!!  Just that bathroom scene alone...ok...and maybe while she was on a call...almost hung up on Todd, the douche...oops...Jake you sneaky devil!

Sexy, Sweet and Just Plain Old Fun...FAKE IT rocked!!

And awesome enough, I get to share an excerpt from one of my favorite scenes in the book.

“Okay, then.” Anna’s fantasy was already taking place in her head as she closed her eyes even more tightly, focusing hard. She could almost smell the guy’s heady, masculine scent drifting around her—not cologne, not aftershave, just the pure, perfect scent of manly guy bathed in heat and spice and sunshine. And she would look over at him, smile seductively, and purr the perfect line.

“C’mon,” she murmured, trying it out. “A weekend at the beach, all the sun and surf you can handle, it’s yours for the taking. And so am I.” She sighed a little, liking the sound of the words as they rolled off her tongue. “Wanna run away for the weekend?”

“Well, hell. Why don’t we make it a year?”

Anna jolted upright, nearly falling off the bar stool. She caught herself the moment before she crashed into the man—the grinning, square-jawed, leather-jacketed, hunk of man—who had most assuredly not been there thirty seconds ago. A man she sort of knew, dammit, and who Erin had to have seen heading her way.

“Oh!” She did an excellent job of looking at the guy without actually looking at him, which was the only reason she could string whole words together. “Um, hi there. I’m so sorry—I didn’t hear you come up.”

“Which appears to be in my favor. I’m Jake, by the way. Jake Flynn. I live down the street from you, I think.”

“I know. I mean, I’ve seen you. In your garage, I mean.” Now, even as she babbled, Anna couldn’t stop staring at Jake’s mouth. She felt her stomach flip the way it always did when she caught sight of any part of the guy’s uncovered anatomy, even the innocuous bits. Steeling herself, she looked up, immediately transfixed by deep-brown eyes that studied her from under a shock of black hair. Pull it together, she ordered herself. This man rode motorcycles, for heaven’s sake, and was probably engaged in illegal activities, going by the action at the brownstone at the end of their lane that he’d apparently commandeered.

But now this motorcycle-criminal, sex-god hottie was looking at her with definite interest, and ... all she could do was stare?

“Well, then we’re practically best friends, it seems. And you are?” Anna’s heart skipped as Jake’s smile etched intriguing creases into skin already weathered from years of wind and sun. “If we’re going to run off to the beach together, I think I should know your name.”

“Anna Richardson.” Anna fought and lost the battle against blushing. “And I’m so sorry about that, again. I was just—practicing. I guess.”

“Glad to meet you, Anna Richardson,” Jake said, his words so smooth that she felt like every inch of her skin had been caressed, standing the fine hairs on end. With a creak of leather, Jake angled his athletic body toward her. He was now within arm’s reach, a smile again teasing the edges of his lips until they pulled taut and held, full and suggestive. “Practicing for what?”

Anna blinked, her mind slewing a little sideways. Jake’s hair was tousled, his eyes heavy and warm, his smile easy. Tiny laugh lines radiated from the outer corners of his eyes, pale streaks in the bronzed skin. He was ... amazing.

He was also waiting for an answer, Anna realized. Which meant she needed to drag herself back to reality, now.

“You wouldn’t understand.” She shook her head again, so assertively that her neck throbbed in protest. “And it’s kind of hard to explain. I need to ask someone out on a date. I mean, it’s a wedding. And I’m in it.”

Jennifer Chance is the award-winning author of the new adult Rule Breakers series. A lover of books, romance, and happily-ever-afters, she lives and writes in Ohio.

The new you could be someone unexpected…

Stunned by a life-changing secret and an unexpected inheritance, Cady Morrow leaves her responsible London life behind and hits the California flash mob trail. With her wild twin sister Shelby in tow, she’s determined to make every day of her new start count. So when they’re invited to travel on the flash mob team’s luxury tour bus—in close company with Reid, a man who sets her dangerously, deliciously off-kilter—Cady grabs the chance to be a different version of herself.

But she soon discovers that not everyone she encounters is who they seem to be. A complicated new family, unwelcome surprises, and secrets past and present test her faith in her reinvented self, as well as in those around her. And when Shelby goes missing, Cady has to rely on the enigmatic Reid for help, even as she doubts his motives—and her resistance to his teasing charm.

With the flash mob facing disaster, her sister in jeopardy, and things with Reid heating up, Cady realizes that what started as ‘fake it ’til you make it’ has become her reality. And when she finds herself in a life-threatening confrontation, she learns just how different she can really be…and exactly what she’ll do for the sake of a new start.

Serena Clarke grew up in a family of itchy-footed readers and dreamers—not concentrating, reading the atlas and Narnia books, and planning to escape somewhere magical as soon as she could. When she was 16, she left New Zealand to live in Sweden for a year. It was the beginning of many travels and adventures—and quite a few disasters! 

She didn’t know it at the time, but eventually she’d be grateful for all the downs as well as the ups. As writers say in the face of adversity: “I can use that.” She’s now back in New Zealand, where she writes stories reflecting her determined belief in magic, possibility, second chances, and happy endings.
