Shopping for an Heir | Julia Kent

Shopping for a Billionaire #10

Publication date: September 20th 2016

Gerald Wright works for billionaires. He never imagined he’d become one.

The former Navy Seal is a chauffeur by day, artist by night, so when hotter-than-ever ex-fiancée Suzanne Dayton interrupts his nude model sculpting class to serve him with inheritance paperwork from a man he’s never heard of, he assumes it’s a joke.

Turns out the joke’s on him. There’s just one catch. A big one.

And it might be Suzanne — in more ways than he ever dreamed.

Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series by Julia Kent.

Book Blitz: Your Sound by Katia Rose

Your Sound | Katia Rose

Sherbrooke Station #3

Publication date: December 1st 2018

Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

Molly Myers is just your average groupie next door.

Literally.

The rock star whose posters cover her bedroom wall is banging her roommate right on the other side of it. Even for Molly, reigning queen of embarrassing moments, the situation is epically awkward.

Every thump of the headboard is just one more reminder that the lead singers of famous bands don’t date bumbling shy girls too anxious to leave their own rooms.

JP Bouchard-Guindon wasn’t looking for Molly’s room when he accidentally burst through the door, but the wild-haired girl lying there in her underwear was certainly worth the detour.

As the keyboardist for Montreal’s latest indie rock sensation, JP has met his fair share of fangirls. He’s always ready to throw up some finger guns for a photo. What he’s not ready for is the way skittish, wide-eyed Molly Myers gets stuck inside his head.

A practical joker and a social recluse are the last people anyone expects a connection between. She’s silence aching for a voice, and he’s sound with a craving for quiet.

Their differences will either pull them together, or fracture their worlds when they push them apart.

Author Bio:

Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain.

She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters.

A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.

Book Blitz: Shopping for a Baby’s First Christmas by Julia Kent

Shopping for a Baby’s First Christmas | Julia Kent

Shopping #15

Publication date: December 6th 2018

Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together.

Sounds reasonable, right?

And it would be.

If it weren’t my mother.

My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.

And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.

Wait – why am I saying no again?

Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?

Those people are saner than my mother.

There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.

Wait a minute. Maybe there is.

My husband.

BLURB

Tis the season to be jolly, but romance writer Matt Darcy is feeling anything but festive. With a pile of rejection letters as high as his latest manuscript, Matt is questioning whether his career as an author will ever take off.

And while his perfect husband Cal has planned a week-long trip to a mountain chalet for Matt, Mrs. Mulroney, Mr. Banks, Tilly and Angus—so that everyone can be together and enjoy the lead-up to Christmas—Matt can only hope his feelings of worthlessness and self-doubt won’t ruin the trip.

But when a bump on the head knocks Matt out and he wakes up miles from the chalet, the journey he must undertake is not a trek through the snow, but an eye-opening insight into the lives of those he loves most if he, Matt Darcy, had never, ever existed.

Will Matt let his feelings of uselessness and self-doubt lead him forever into the Forest of Darkness… or will this Christmas open his eyes to the magical truth that it is indeed a wonderful life?

The Billionaire's Wedding Teaser 1

EXCERPT

“Hello? Are you alive in there? I can’t find you under all that damn snow. God Almighty, I think this one might really be… no… wait… I see him now. Yep, he’s alive.”

The voice felt distant at first, and was one I definitely didn’t recognize, at least not immediately. All I knew was my head was hurting like hell and when I tried to open my eyes all I could feel was the cold sting of snow, until someone with a gloved hand was wiping the snow away and trying to yank me up.

“Cal? Is that you?” I asked groggily, trying to shake my senses awake as someone pulled me out of the pile of snow I was buried under. But when my bleary eyes finally blinked into action, the person helping me to my feet was—“You?”

“I do have a name, you know.”

“Rashida, right? Rashida Jefferson?”

“You remember!” Rashida exclaimed with a big smile and an even bigger embrace. “It normally takes people a while to remember who I am. You must be good with names and faces. I’m taking you with me to my next dinner party. I am hopeless at remembering who’s who. I try to do the food association thing, you know, come up with nicknames based on who’s eating what at the dinner table, like Charlie Chicken Wings or Clam Chowder Carol, but I end up saying that name out loud and nobody is ever impressed with that.”

She released me, but all I could do was stand there staring at her in absolute, utter confusion. “Clam Chowder Carol? I don’t understand. What’s going on? What the hell are you doing here? I think I may be hallucinating.”

“Just relax, honey. You’re in a little bit of shock. You just got whomped by an avalanche of ice. Cal was right, that awning was totally a disaster waiting to happen.”

I looked around, suddenly concerned that I didn’t see my husband anywhere. “Cal? Where is he? Is he all right?” I called out to him. “Cal! Cal, where are you?”

“He’s not here.”

“Where is he?” I looked around, and suddenly realized I didn’t know where I was either. I was expecting to see the chalet, the awning, our four-wheel-drive parked a short distance away. But there was nothing but snow and trees and stars glittering in the night sky. “Oh fuck? Where is everyone? Where are we?”

“It’s okay,” Rashida said. “I told you, just relax. Everything’s okay. Deep breaths.”

“I don’t wanna take deep breaths. I wanna know where I am. Did I sleepwalk here? Oh God, I’ve been sleepwalking through the woods. I’m lost, aren’t I?”

“You could say that.”

“But what the fuck are you doing out here?”

“Well, in a nutshell, I’m here to rescue you.”

“But how did you know I was out here? Did you follow us to the chalet? Who are you? Oh my God, none of this is making sense. I need to find my way back to the chalet.”

Love Undercover #2

Published by: Entangled: Lovestruck

Publication date: November 13th 2017

Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance, Christmas romance

She’s the exception to his every rule…

FBI agent Max Carter lives his life by a strict set of rules—rules that don’t allow for distraction, deviation…or a relationship.

But tell that to his matchmaking mama. To avoid yet another set-up, he announces he has a girlfriend. And now has to produce said girlfriend at Christmas dinner. Maybe Santa has a suitable actress in that red bag of his…

Gina Castillo is about to break her building’s iron-clad “no pets” policy to give her little brother the perfect Christmas gift—a dog.

Too bad Max, the most inconveniently sexy tenant in the building, catches her red handed. Gina expects to be evicted, but instead finds herself blackmailed into playing the role of his girlfriend.

Two lies plus one dog should equal a hot mess of a holiday, but attraction and Christmas magic might just defy the rules…

The Billionaire's Wedding Teaser 1

EXCERPT

Every day since we had moved into the lavish apartment building on Fifth Avenue I had taken the stairs. I would forever be grateful that I was on hand to help deliver Camilla’s baby the day we looked at the place and got stuck in the elevator, but what if next time the elevator stalled between floors it wasn’t a pregnant woman trapped with me?

What if I was stuck in there with a serial killer or an asylum escapee or Roseanne Barr? It was a chance I was not willing to take. On the upside, the forced exercise was keeping me fit.

On the downside, I have no idea where all my endorphins were going. Everybody says that exercise releases the same chemicals as the ones that bring you joy and happiness, like letting them loose to have some massive street party in your brain. Evidently my endorphins were all sitting in the library reading Sylvia Plath.

As I reached our floor and slid my keys into the lock, I could clearly hear two people whispering on the other side of the door.

“I think he’s coming,” one voice said.

“Take your position,” another voice dramatically replied. “The enemy approaches.”

“You got enough ammo?” said the first voice.

“Enough to send him back to hell in a handbasket.”

The not-so-secret conversation was followed by the not-so-quiet shuffling of feet on the floor, and I could only assume Angus and Mr Banks were hiding behind the hall stand and the cloakroom door, ready to ambush me.

I gave a sigh of resignation, braced myself, then swung the apartment door open.

The second I set foot inside the apartment, a war cry rang out as a barrage of white socks—each pair folded up in a ball—came flying through the air at me with surprising force, thumping into my face, chest, stomach and crotch.

I jolted and staggered backward. “Jesus! Ow! What the fuck?”

“Aim for his nuts,” shouted Angus. “That’s his weak spot!”

“No prisoners!” cried Mr Banks as though he were Lawrence of Arabia himself. “No prisoners!”

“Guys! Stop! Quit it now!” I shouted back, doing my best to shield my face and my balls at the same time. “What are you doing upstairs, anyway? We have rules.”

As their ammunition dwindled and my attackers ran out of socks to throw, Angus and Mr Banks came out from their posts. “We told Paulina we wanted to greet you when you got home so we let ourselves up here,” Angus said.

“You call that a greeting?”

“Actually, it was more like practice for the snow fights we’re planning for the next week. If you think socks hurt, wait until you get hit in the nutsack by a snowball.”
