Spicy Romance Without The Strong Language. ETHAN'S TEMPORARY FLING on Special #99c #BeachRead

Looking for a sweet and spicy feel-good romance with clean language? Why not try ETHAN'S TEMPORARY FLING? For a limited time, you can grab a copy for 99c .


Super-hunky, weight-loss celebrity Ethan Stone brings out Dr. Karis Van de Burke’s inner bad-girl. To prove it, when Ethan accepts the challenge to persuade the sassy, love-rejected cosmetic surgeon to appear as a guest on his show, she ends up inviting him into her bed for one night of guilty pleasure instead.

Used to women throwing themselves at him boobs first, Ethan knows his way around every female erogenous zone, but the sizzling chemistry he has with Karis blindsides him. Soon he’s convincing her to extend their one-night to another ... and another ... and...

Karis can’t resist! Yet, if Ethan discovers her secret, he’ll ditch her as fast as her ex-fiancĂ© had -- but really, what could go wrong in a one-week tangle-free affair?


When he didn’t continue into the house, she angled her head
to meet his gaze. That sensation of over-intoxication hit her again.

“Um—you have my permission to go grab whatever it was you forgot.” She jerked a thumb behind her in the general direction of the sitting room. “I’ll wait here for you.”

His slow cocky grin was back, and it melted her all the way to her curled toes.

“I have your permission, do I?”

She nodded. “Sure.” She just wanted him to move it and get his tempting self out of her reach.

She glanced around again, hoping to catch sight of whatever object he left behind, but noticed nothing out of the ordinary. He did say he could see it from the doorway, so she clearly overlooked whatever it was.

When she glanced back at Ethan, the expression on his face told her she might have been looking in the wrong place.

Unruly anticipation jolted her nervous system, pushed her pulse rate into top gear. Trying to slow her over-excited heartbeat, she held his gaze. 

“What exactly did you forget, Ethan?” Her breathy whisper had his attention dropping to her mouth. Her lips burned under his heated stare, forcing her to wet them with the tip of her tongue.

“This...” One word—low and husky enough to make her knees wobble. But it was the sheer masterful way he cupped her nape, stepped close enough to imprison her in his ultra sexy force field, and covered her mouth with his that unglued her.

What some people are saying:

"LOVED this story. The chemistry between Karis and Ethan rocks!"

"If you love contemporary romance with a bit of heat, you're going to love this book."

"Author Monique DeVere gives the reader an incredibly steamy, erotic read."

"A fun, sexy, addictive read that's perfect for the beach."

Meet Smoking-Hot New Hero: Casey Lowe from Party For Two #amwriting #Romance

Meet Casey Lowe, my hero in the works. He hails from my latest story entitled "Party For Two", a super-spicy romance I'm targeting at Harlequin Blaze. 

Casey Lowe is a 34-year-old attorney in California with an eye on making partner. He wants Danielle Hampton, but only for a fling, because he doesn’t do relationships. And definitely not with his boss’s daughter. He’d made that mistake once and he doesn’t plan on doing it again, but he needs Dani’s help to land a client. This takes them to Palm Springs and some pretty steamy moments. Dani has a way of tying him in knots, making him want things he shouldn’t want, especially when sooner or later everyone he cares about leaves him. But for now, Casey is enjoying the fun. And lawyer turned pregnancy model, Dani, is a whole lot of fun!
