Delinquents Cover Reveal

Coming: October 23, 2014
The innocent girl with a delinquent heart has to live with her bad choices. Secret hope and hurt feel like falling while she learns how to breathe again, but there's still freedom in trouble.

The runaway with blacked-out eyes is losing his grip. Crushing two hearts in one fist, his addiction bends rules and breaks deals, but the boy born for bliss isn't going anywhere without a fight.

Love is knowing they should stay away, but love is illogical at best.

She's afraid to let go.

He won't let her.

This is how silliness and foolishness grow up.

Here, forever is a lie.

I stand silent, breathing in through my nose and out my mouth. Tonight’s argument is years of frustration stacked and hidden, too tall to push away anymore. A little trigger is all it takes, and we end up like this, saying things we don’t mean, taking our aggravation out on each other.
My heart pumps misguided love.
“This isn’t how it’s supposed to be,” it beats. “But that’s your boy—aimless and crazy for you.”
Knowing that I had a role on his spiral to the bottom kills me. As his parents continue to fail him, I should be the one that steps forward and says, “This is wrong.”
But to do so at this point in his madness would be betrayal, and I have to handle his trust with care.

Inhaling an uneven breath, I watch him under the moon’s glow washing out his already pale complexion. Icy wind blows my boy’s white tee against his slender body under his unzipped hoodie, and his hands shake at his sides.

Stepbrother Dearest Release Day Blitz

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.

It had been years since I’d seen Elec.

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+


Cinco CALIENTE smooches!

HOLY SHIIIIIIT!!! Okay, I am ready.  I am sure, like myself, you have seen the HOTTTT teasers floating around for Stepbrother Dearest for a while now.  I am a sucker for forbidden love.  The more taboo the better!  Step-siblings, YES please!  I wanted this book SO badly that I was sure it would disappoint.  I am sosososo happy to tell you that it did the exact opposite.  This book exceeded all of my expectations.  I am IN LOVE with Elec and Greta!

Elec is sent to live with his father and his new family, whom he has yet to meet, while his mother gets her shit together.  Elec and his dad have a very rocky relationship and from the start you just know there is a huge story there.  And then there is Greta(hate that name BTW!!), the hot stepsister he wishes he never had.  Elec walks around with a huge chip on his shoulder.  He is rude.. he is obnoxious, he is hot as hell and completely irresistible!

My body was an imbecile with poor judgement.  How could it want something so badly that hated it right back?

Greta is completely obsessed with her new stepbrother and the meaner he is to her the more she seems to want him.  They start off pranking one another and eventually it turns into a game.  Elec is confusing.  At times it seems he wants to be her friend and then he goes back to his asshole-ish ways.  Their relationship is hot and cold.  Greta is in a constant state of what I would call horny confusion.

I’m not going to give much away bc again I was completely surprised with the depth of Stepbrother Dearest.  While I got all of the angst I anticipated… and more.  I also got some very unexpected feels and tears!  WHAT?!?  This was supposed to be a smutty fun read, right?  See, there is the more!  And it was hilarious… like laugh out loud/ fall out of your chair funny!  

This was my first Penelope Ward book and I am SOLD!  I am going to go back and read everything she has ever written.  I loved this book SO much!  I know you all will too.  Don’t let this one pass you by girlies!  CLICK CLICK CLICK!

I leave you with the most epic line ever...

“Nothing says I’m sorry like a dick and a smile.”

5 - I wish we had more time - Smooches

"How am I different from any of those other girls you give yourself to?"
He ran both hands through his hair, messing it up then looked at me with darkened eyes.  "Actually, there's a big difference.  You're the only girl in the entire world that's forbidden and fuck me, if that doesn't make me want you more than anything."

Holy hell, y'all!  For weeks, WEEKS I tell you, I was WANTING Stepbrother Dearest!  The premise, the teasers ... I had a MAJOR hard on for this book.  As the day got closer ... the day Stepbrother Dearest would appear on my Kindle, I started to worry.  The HYPE, the ANTICIPATION ... it was too much, what if the book was disappointing?  A huge let down?  I wasn't sure I could take it.

Thank goodness!  All that worrying was for nothing!  Stepbrother Dearest was not at all what I was expecting.  Yes, it was sexy and angsty and forbidden (which I was totally expecting) but it was So. Much. More.

Greta's life is thrown for a loop when her sexy and angry stepbrother Elec comes to live with her, her mom and stepfather.  As Elec's relationship with his father unfolds and Greta better understands what is between them, she develops a soft spot for Elec despite his crappy attitude towards her.  They both find themselves fighting an attraction for each other while a unexpected kinship grows between them.

Stepbrother Dearest takes a path I wasn't expecting at all and turns into quite the little love story.  It was packed with humor I wasn't expecting either.  I really, really loved it!

Congrats & Happy Release to Julie A Richman! 

Bad Son Rising is LIVE!

Barnes & Noble:

RELEASE DATE: September 12th


People think I'm a douche.

And maybe I am.

I use most people.

It's what I know.

But if I love you,

I'd die for you.

I just don't know that I'm worth loving.

Handsome, privileged bad boy Zac Moore has always played by his own rules - at school, in business, with women. He's rewritten the rules to suit his own needs and his needs are all that matter.

Serious and focused family friend Liliana Castillo has one goal. Leave the pre-Med program at Yale to help people in developing nations.

As their paths cross and uncross, a tale of love, agony, betrayal and growth is woven, transforming two people who've hidden from relationships and love.

This is a stand-alone novel.


“I wasn’t kidding when I said that I was not going to be able to wait for next time.”

Lily’s elusive smile started at the corners of her mouth, lifting the apples of her cheeks and crinkling the outer edges of her gold-flecked eyes. “Do you seriously think you’re going to bang me against a Baobab tree?”

“I know I’m going to bang you against a Baobab tree.” He was already working on the zipper of her jeans. With his hands inside her pants, he slipped them into her underwear, tightly grasping her ass.

Lily’s gasp was audible as he kneaded a cheek with each hand.

“Are you ready for me?” he whispered.

Nodding she stepped out of her jeans and he undid his. Lifting her, she wrapped her legs around his slim hips and he lowered her onto his waiting cock. Leaning her back against the ancient tree trunk for leverage, Zac thrust his hips up burying himself deeply within Lily.

Her eyes were wide as she let out another gasp. “I’ve never fucked against a tree.”

Zac laughed, “It’s a first for me too, babe.” And after a few more strokes, “Tighten your legs around me, Lils.” Not taking his eyes off of hers, “You feel so damn good.”

“You too,” were the only words she could squeak out and finally, as a result of his deep pounding, with bated breath, “Zac.”

He nodded, “I know, babe.” His final powerful thrusts had her back molded to the tree.

He fell into her, the old Baobab holding them both up. With their heads on one another’s shoulders, they stood very still until they’d both regained their breath.

Hand-in-hand they headed back to camp.

Please don’t fall in love with me, Zac silently warned.

Please fall in love with me, Zac silently prayed.
