Never Settle by Kate Richards


Never Settle

By Kate Richards

 Workaholic Arabella Carmichael is achieving her career goal in a large corporation by giving up all her other dreams. Friends, family, and a love life—as well as company of her own. A surprise vacation designed to give her a break and make her even more productive on her return lands her on an island with no Internet, so no way to work. Perhaps she can have one of those vacation flings she’s heard so much about. But why is that incredibly handsome guy leaving on the plane she arrived on? Will Sanders spotted the gorgeous blonde when boarding the plane for the mainland. He cannot forget her and returns sooner than planned, only to find she’s about to hook up with a lawyer friend of his with a less than stellar reputation with women. Is he too late to catch her eye and get her to spend her vacation in his arms, or will she go ahead with her plans with Earl? He’s got to convince her he’s the right one for her before she throws herself back into a life of all work and no play. 


  “I like it here, too. You give a great massage.” “I do,” he said, closing his hand around her ankle. “Would you like to try one of my full-body specials?” Dear god. What will he think if I have an orgasm from this? She trembled, tried to still the reaction. “Oh, are you also the resort masseur? I guess everyone has more than one job here. The waitress told me she fills in when the guy in the gift shop takes divers out. Can you fit me in your schedule this week?” He shook his head slowly, skating his hand up her calf, working the knots out of each spot as he went, somehow managing to create a whole new kind of tension in her core. “I’m not a professional, sweetheart.” “No?” Breathe in. Breathe out. “I’m a talented amateur. At least I like to think I’m talented.” “Yes,” she whispered. “You’re talented. And I’d like a massage.” Will set her foot on the sand next to the other one. “Those shoes are going to wreck your feet.” “I’m short.” He rose to stand and brushed the sand off his pants. “I can think of some ways that can be a real advantage.” Oh come on. I’m only human. “I think I’d like to hear about those ways.” Will wrapped an arm around her waist and ushered her down the beach toward her place. “I can’t tell you about them.” “No?” Disappointed, and a little confused, she pouted. “Oh well. I guess I’ll never know.” His hand slid up her back to her hair. “I can’t tell you. But I can show you.” A quick yank freed her hair from its ponytail. “I’ve been wanting to do that all night.” Her scalp tingled with the release. “You need to let loose.” “I do,” she agreed. “Want to help me?” “Nothing I’d like to do more.” He bent toward her, lips a whisper away. “Want to start tonight?”

Author Bio: Kate Richards divides her time between Los Angeles and the High Sierras. She would gladly spend all her days in the mountains, but she’d miss the beach…and her very supportive husband’s commute would be three hundred miles. Wherever she is, she loves to explore all different kinds of relationships in her stories. She doesn’t believe one-size-fits-all, and whether her characters live BDSM, ménage, GLBT, spanking, or any other kind of lifestyle, it’s the love, the joy in one another, that counts.

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.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

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…
