The Harvest by Merci L McKinley

They Say 
By Merci L. McKinley 

They say this and that, but it is muffled
I continue to seek the need to speak
Their words are not piercing it is mumbled
Yet what I say, encourages others to seek

They say plenty of things that is not making sense
Trying to be loud and seen but still not heard
Speaking meaningless things in certain pretense
Little do they know what they say is most certainly absurd

They say this and that but it’s worth a penny with a hole in it
I continue to seek the need to speak
Their words slowly fading for it is pure nonsense
Yet what I say continues to nourish the weak. (c)

Innocent Eyes by Hard De Lune

Innocent Eyes by Charlotte E Hart and Rachel De Lune Release Date: 19th February Genre: Dark. Erotic Romance   #InnocentEyesTour Add to your Goodreads TBR Synopsis: "If he's gross, I'm bailing."  That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?  He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.  But Jenny didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.  “A debt needs to be paid.” The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes.  Still, the debt will be paid either way. She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirt…

Well Played by JS Scott and Ruth Cardello


Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?


Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made…
