Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
"What would you give for a second chance with your first love?"
Cindy has loved Sean O'Rourke for as long as she can remember...
When Cindy Cavanaugh got pregnant at fifteen, she wasn't worried. After all, she knew Sean would always be there for her and their baby. Now twenty years have gone by, and she's Cindy Sullivan, stuck in a loveless marriage to Patrick, an ethically corrupt lawyer who controls her every move... And the daughter she shares with Sean is getting married.
Sean has never gotten over his first love, and seeing her again is almost more than he can bear...
When Sean arrives at his daughter's wedding rehearsal, it isn't the bride who takes his breath away. Cindy is just as smart and funny, but she not only is she married—Sean is in an unhappy relationship of his own. It seems their love is nothing more than a fond memory.
A moment of passion leads to unexpected complications...
After a few stolen moments during the reception, Sean is determined to be with Cindy again. As for Cindy, the only thing keeping her married is her controlling husband's ironclad prenuptial agreement—until she learns that her tryst with Sean led to more than just passion. Seeing this as her long awaited second chance, Cindy leaves her husband and runs back to Sean, but Patrick is prepared to use any means necessary—legal or otherwise—to keep Cindy by his side.
As Cindy and Sean struggle to build a new life together, will they succeed in Changing Fate?

Jennifer writes books about faeries, orcs and elves. Zombies too. She grew up in the wilds of Western Massachusetts and had read every book in the local library by age twelve. (It was a small library). An early love of mythology and folklore led to her epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Parthalan, and her day job as a cubicle monkey helped shape her urban fantasy, Copper Girl. When she's not writing about things that go bump in the night (and sometimes during the day) she's working on her MFA in Creative Nonfiction.

Seducing Her by Houston Havens @HoustonHavens #RLFblog #romance

Seducing Her
The brilliant, multi-layered, bestselling author, Houston Havens thrills your senses with this 282-page teaser book. It includes only the first 4 chapters of each of the first 4 books in this series. This is not a full book - it's meant to provide a sample, and it's free on Kindle Unlimited.

From the Series

4860 AD Earth. Humans had been warned yet refused to believe doomsday was at hand until it was too late to find sanctuary.
Since the beginning of humanity, an unseen presence guided human beliefs, actions, and lives. The Secret Blood Doctrine is the law the Dirt Dwellers Elites live by. They have their own goals and reasons for controlling the Earth. The humans were a means for accomplishing their goals, and a way to cover operating costs by culling them at the end of each cycle. At the arranged times, the Dirt Dwellers Elites withdrew to the Underworld with a few chosen ones to await the renewal.
Book 1: Sinful Surrender
Top psychic spy Fay Avalon suspects what she's remote viewed in her mind-travels and what her post-catastrophic dystopian government of the Underworld is stating as fact is a lie. In search of the truth, she escapes the Underworld, only to land in the arms of her enemy; the Airborne. Will she get the chance to uncover the secrets the Underworld is hiding before those on the surface, Logan and his brothers, discover who she is? Will they make her their wife or execute her as a spy?
Book 2: Phantom Desire
The search for truth continues with Fay's friend Chandra Lamar, but from a past she can't remember. A psychic vision pushes her to recall her purpose for being, but it's a ghost that awakens her desires for a life she fears she'll never have. Does Chandra find true love in the arms of the Nodin men or does her Phantom Desire forever own her heart? Will uncovering her true past expose the Underworld's deception?
Book 3: Exposed Ecstasy
Tessla Reto escapes the Underworld after finding the two men sent to help her dead. She's rescued by a handsome stranger…or is she? Faerydae's search for truth abruptly ends when a woman who stirs everything he's spent a lifetime denying falls into his life. Will Shomar be able to win the woman of his dreams or will a fairy always have her heart? Can the Underworld's long reach find Tessla, daughter of the ruler of the Dirt Dwellers, on the space station or will they find a way to draw her back to the surface?
Book 4: Intimate Betrayal
Kindise Wyatt is in search of her lover and escapes her Star Rider capture with the help of an Old World Mole. What she doesn't know is, his sexy but mysterious friend, Jaden Valenti is a Dirt Dweller with orders to assassinate her. Will betrayal crush Kindise's inner strength to help the Freedom Fighters defeat the Dirt Dweller Elites?
