Excerpt: 
The Blond Hottie’s hand dropped down to the small of Rae’s back and pressed, tilting her pelvis in toward his. She let him. 
She let him. She was just letting things happen again. Just like falling into her major and flunking out of school, she was drifting instead of making decisions. 
Being seduced was letting things happen to her, not doing things. 
The Blond Hottie nodded toward the couple, who were leaning on the wall, spent. He whispered, “Would you ever do something like that?” 
Rae was going back to dust-choked Pirtleville in three and half weeks. 
Three and half stupid weeks. 
Screwing The Blond Hottie against a wall would be doing something. 
“Yeah,” she said, “but not out here.” She had seen couples slip through a door and then emerge later, disheveled, but hadn’t really made the connection. “Back there.” 
The Blond Hottie smiled again, and this time, the toothiness verged on wolfiness. “You want to be against a wall?” 
“No.” Rae tossed her head and looked straight into his deep blue, hungry eyes. “You’re going to be the one against the wall.”


Tyson Ellison vs.  Jeremiah St. Clair

Tyson Ellison
Leaving his last foster home, Tyson Ellison signed his name on the dotted line and checked out entirely, looking for something he felt missing. Four tours of service over-seas, too much death, too much violence, brought him back stateside. He was tired, drained, and still empty with nothing left to give. He hopped on his Ducati and headed northwest from his base in Georgia, the only place he’d ever called home. Fate ran him out of gas in the tiny town of Renlend, Kansas with nothing but his Army-issued duffle holding a few meager belongings.
For two years Dianna’s father has made sure something around their family-owned Bed and Breakfast needed attention. Tyson’s attention. His handy-man skills put them in each other’s space on a regular basis, her dad pointing out the vet’s attributes regularly. She isn’t oblivious, she’d memorized each one. Tyson’s body was made for the movies, and so he kind of flirted with and smiled at her. Always managed to speak to her when he is there working. 
But in what lifetime would a ripped, tanned, tattooed Army veteran want with the shyest girl in town? Especially someone as plain Jane as her.

From Tyson Ellison
“God, Dianna, I’ve needed you for so long, love. I didn’t mean to come in here and well…I truly was just going to ease you away from the window before Drew said something to embarrass me. But, hell, I don’t know. Seeing you in this strappy sundress and cowboy boots—” He ran his fingers through her hair, down to the strap of the dress, leaving his forefinger beneath the skinny piece of material resting on her skin. “I. Geez, the good gentleman part of me knows I need to apologize, but the rest of me won’t let the words form. I need you to know how I feel, and honestly, I really want to know if you feel the same way. Drew says I’m stalking you. I didn’t tell the jerk he was right, but you’re all I think about.”

Dianna felt his warm breath against her ear, and then as he started to speak, her heart jumped to her throat.
“You’re mine now,” Tyson whispered.

“First off, Dianna Lane, I will go to drastic measures to change your attitude.” Her eyes widened, not exactly sure how to take his threat. The second one in less than five minutes. His face twisted, not hiding the smoldering heat building in his eyes. “Now, secondly, I am pretty damn sure you’re wrong. As a matter of fact, picturing you—” He let out a long wolfish breath of air through his teeth, close to a whistle. “Oh, yeah. Even better than lingerie—you very much naked with the only things on you being my eyes, my hands, my mouth—need I go on?”

“You’re a naughty man, Mr. Ellison.”  (Dianna Lane)
“Oh, love, I told you I wasn’t innocent. And I plan to make sure you know how not innocent, how not perfect, how not nice I am—over and over and over. I want to hear you. I want my name falling from your lips. But not tonight. I promised.”

Excerpt:
#1:
“Don’t.” Her words were a whisper, but still loud in the back of the limo.
            “Don’t, what?”
            Finally she looked at him, her deep brown eyes molten in the darkness. “Don’t be my brother’s best friend tonight. Don’t be my cheerleader. Just…” Her hand trembled against his on the cool leather seat. “I’m not America’s favorite sixteen-year-old any longer. I don’t need to pretend I’m still sixteen, and the magazines are already burning me at Trey’s sacrificial altar, so why not send that old image up in flames all the way?”
            She leaned across the seat, brushed her sweet lips across his cheek, and Nate nearly lost it. He was holding on by a thread. This was Lily.
            The same girl he’d grown up with. The Lily who’d brought him home after school because she noticed he hadn’t eaten lunch for three days. The Lily who cheered for him at the high school talent show. The Lily who couldn’t really want him, because if she did…he would ruin her.
            Nate groaned when her lips brushed against his. A bit of her hair had come loose from the sleek updo and brushed against his neck, fanning that trickle of flame even hotter.
            Her hand traced the line of his jaw, and Nate’s resistance burned to the ground. He pushed her back into the corner and dug his hands into her hair. “You don’t know what you’re asking for.”
            She panted. “I know exactly what I want, Nate Lansford, and what I want is you.”
            Nate lowered his lips to hers, tasting the sweetness of her lips for the first time. Her tongue tangled with his, pushing him further, asking him for more. And Nate gave it.
            When Lily arched her back, Nate reached for her breast, feeling her nipple pucker beneath the fine silk of her dress. She moaned, a tiny sound, but it was enough to pull him back into the present.
            What was he doing? This was Lily. The girl who made him want to be more than the kid from the wrong side of Malibu’s tracks. His friend.
            He couldn’t mess that up.
            Nate pushed away from her, fisting his hands in his hair as he tried to put a few more inches between them. The back of the limo was too tight. He was too close to Lily. He needed air. Space.
            Distance.
            “I’m sorry.” His voice was rough. “That shouldn’t have happened.”

#2:
Nate smiled at her. “Still putting on a show?”
            She could only shake her head.
            “Because I’m about through watching it.”
            Her belly twisted at the innuendo. “Sometimes you have to be part of the sh—”
            He put his index finger over her lips. “No quippity-quips. Not now, Lil. Let’s just dance, okay?”
            Her lips burned under his finger, but she nodded and slid into his arms as the DJ switched from bass-thumping fun to guitar-sensitive slow.
            Nate slid his hands beneath her coat and reached under the camisole to play with the sensitive skin at the small of her back. And she melted into him. Lily rested her head below his shoulder and twined her fingers with his. She sighed at the rightness of being in his arms, even in the middle of a crowd and fully clothed.
            He played his fingers along her sides like a piano and then worked his way around to the small of her back again, burning her from the outside in. Lily swallowed. She might want Nate, but she wasn’t ready for him.
            Wasn’t ready for whatever this was building between them.
            A small part of her still wanted the Nate she remembered—the boy who stood up to school-yard bullies for her, who smiled at her and only her while he performed before the rest of the student body in talent shows. The boy she shared her lunch with, the boy who took her to the senior prom when Bailey Yeardley stood her up at the last minute. She had so many memories with Nate, and almost all of them also involved her brother. What if whatever this was messed up not only her friendship with Nate, but also Chase’s?
            Her waking up a year ago and realizing the boy she’d grown up with had become a heart-stoppingly attractive man didn’t mean a thing . He was still her brother's best friend. He might be the guy who would give the reporter's something to talk about besides her show being cancelled, but that wasn't a good enough reason to act. Not if they couldn’t salvage their friendship when this lust train arrived at the next station.

Jake North

6’2
175 Lbs
Brown hair, military cut
Brown eyes
22 years old
Grew up wealthy on his family’s ranch and oil fields, but wanted to make his own way.
Army Special Forces Soldier
Years of tours in Iraq and Afghanistan has left a deep scar on Jake’s soul and he returns home damaged and without hope.
He is tempermental, moody, and pensive.
He struggles with internal guilt and pride, while desperately trying to fit back into his family and Livie’s life.
Jake has always loved Livie, but doesn’t know if she still loves him back and if she could ever forgive him.



"When you're lost... True North" The North brothers were hell on wheels-adrenaline-junky bad boys. You’d think they had a death wish – every one of them – but they didn’t really, they just got off on the thrill of pushing every limit, that gravity or any other force told them they couldn’t conquer. What they weren't prepared for were the women that would steal their hearts.
Livie Morrisey is dreading seeing Jake after his heroic homecoming from Afghanistan. She's been in love with Jake North since she was a little girl, but he's three-and-a-half years older than her and her big brother’s best friend. She was always nothing but the off-limits little sister – until the night before Jake left for the Army, when he'd given her her first kiss. They'd kept in touch for a year, but once Jake was deployed to Afghanistan, he'd cut off contact suddenly and she'd never heard from him again.
For the past three years Livie has kept herself distracted with homework and her university studies, but now Jake's going to be up close and personal. And Livie can’t decide if tonight's finally the night to prove to Jake she’s all grown up or the night she should let him go forever.

NOOK
(Excerpt)
His gaze was too intense, and I looked out over the lake. Wild Canada Geese were flying overhead—my favorite birds.
“Are you going to fly away, Liv?” His voice was deep and thick again.
When I brought my eyes back to him, he was looking at the geese too.
I offered him back the brew. “No.”
He thoughtfully ran his thumb over the lip of the bottle, and I wondered desperately what he was thinking about.
“Are you?” I tried.
“I’m tired of flying,” he said flatly.
I thought for a minute. “Well, this is a good place to land.”
“Thanks for forgiving me for last night. You really kicked my ass. I wasn’t expecting it,” he confessed. “Not an excuse for me being an asshole. I’m not sure exactly what came over me, really.”
I nodded and watched him drain the bottle.
He switched the empty with the full and continued, “That’s not entirely true.” He popped the top and offered it to me first. I took it in my hand and listened intently so I didn’t miss a word. “They were all looking at you like you were good enough to eat, and I wanted to kill the lot of them. I’m not accustomed to jealousy, and it hit me hard.”
Jealousy’s good, right??? I guessed that sometimes it could mean being possessive in a bad way … but I was pretty sure that wasn’t Jake.
Since we’d gotten on the bike the darkness had left him, but now I was seeing those shadows descend over him again and tried to divert the conversation.
“This was a beautiful place to come. I haven’t been here in a while,” I said.
“I have a lot of amends to make, Olivia, but I don’t know how to do it. Or if it can even be done.”
I didn’t know what to say. I wondered what he needed from me most. What the boys said back at the house was haunting—did Jake have a deep wound we couldn’t see? If I stayed open and listened, would that be the right thing? Could I put my own hurt feelings from the past three years aside?
He gently pulled the bottle from my hand and drank and then stared at it. “You don’t owe me anything, Liv, and I definitely don’t deserve any favors from you …” His expression became pained, but he recovered quickly and masked it. “I want to ask you for one anyway.”
“You want a favor … from me?” I had no idea what I could possibly have to give or what I could do for him. “I can do that.”
He looked up into my face with limited hope. “Pretend I never left.”

 Excerpt
“Are you telling me you are a best selling erotic romance writer?” It was obviously sinking in.
“Yeah.”
“But the books … they’re about us, and we’ve never … so how did you write the sex scenes?” He thought then croaked, “You’d need practical experience!”
This was more than humiliating. “Experience isn’t required.”
He was quiet again before he began, “Who have you—”
Oh my God, this just kept getting worse! “Haven’t,” I said simply.
“You’re a virgin?” He said it like he wasn’t sure he believed me.
At the moment I couldn’t decide which was more mortifying, being one or not being one. “Yes, I’m a virgin. A virgin with a highly active imagination.”
I waited for him to say something, anything, but he didn’t.
“And, I mean, I’d read a lot of those types of books, so it’s not like I didn’t have anything to go on.”
More silence.
“You can just take me home,” I groaned miserably.
“Take you home?” he answered, incredulous. “Take. You. Home?” He paced across the small kitchen floor. “The woman I love writes erotic stories about me and you think I’m going to take you homeAre you kidding?! Remember when I said I wanted to do to you all of the things that were written in this book? Holy fuck! Now to find out you’re the one who wrote them … you’re not going anywhere!” He took a step to the side and leaned on the counter. “And, oh my good God, you’re still a virgin? Breathe, Nate, just breathe.”

She writes brave but "human" characters, imaginative plots and complex worlds; from high octane action to exploring the deepest emotions.
Check out Allie's music soundtracks for the True North Novels on Amazon and YouTube!

She can always be found writing, playing in puddles with her children, hiking with her husband, or adventuring somewhere in the world. Her favorite place to write on warm days is outdoors, but when the weather gets too cold, she'll be inside at her desk inspired by the mountain view from her home office in Montana where she lives with her loving husband, children, and golden retriever.
She loves to travel and lived for three years in her RV with her family while visiting the national parks and forests of the U.S. and a couple Canadian provinces. She is excited to add all of Canada and Alaska in the near future!
She also writes children's stories.

Miles
I lost it all…

My hope, my happiness, and my will to live. My heart was tattered and torn from the promise of real love. 

Until him…

His profound love for living, fortune cookies and collection of rusty matchbox cars made me smile again. It is a simple love story. I found my rainbow, my pot of gold, my piece of beautiful all in one simple man. Miles.

Not every happy ending is perfect...

A hidden secret forces me to reveal my hand and choose between my Prince Charming and my family. 

My choice. My consequences. My story. My Mistake.

Excerpt Blaise POV
Once Ember finally releases her, Leah grabs Ember and leads her down the hall.  I’m hoping Brent goes as well so I can be alone with her for even just a few seconds.
Lady luck is on my side.  I smile as Brent follows Leah and my sister to start loading Tatum’s things.  I reach out and grab her hand.  This girl…I’ve never been like this before, needing to touch someone, needing the connection.  I lace our fingers together.  I’ve missed her.  I know it makes no sense, but it is what it is.
Tatum is looking down at our entwined fingers.  She doesn’t retreat, so I take that as a good sign.  Lifting her chin I say, “Hey you.”
She replies with a croaked hi.  The crack in her voice calms me.  She feels this, too.  She has to.  This can’t be one-sided.  “Let’s get you moved,” I whisper.  To my surprise as much as hers, I kiss her forehead.  I lead her down the hall to join the others.  I don’t trust myself to be alone with her.  I gently squeeze her hand and let go before placing it on the small of her back.  I’m not ready to not have that connection with her.


Good luck to all of your boyfriends! We are excited to do this and wish you all the best of luck.
