tag17Life is a collection of defining moments.
The lavish milestones.
The exciting adventures.
The grand celebrations.
The unforgettable choices that altered your path.
When you ask someone to define their life, they give you the fluffy version.
No one ever wants to hear about the grief, pain, or misfortune. Right?
Wrong.
Those cracks are what make life truly beautiful and worth living.
If you asked me about Xander Dixon five years ago, I could tell you anything you needed to know. He was my best friend, a constant presence, loyal and dependable, a highlight on each day, and a monumental landmark of my childhood.
If you asked me about him now, I would tell you he's a complete mystery. I have no idea how to define Xander because he's no longer a piece in my life puzzle. Xander removed himself without my permission but I am going to get him back.
Xander is stuck in a bleak moment that no one wants to hear about. But I do. I want to know all about his torment, heartache, and suffering. I don't want the glossy stuff. I want to know why he is trapped in the dark and cannot escape.
In order to truly save him, I need to redefine us.
That's exactly what I'm going to do.teaser
tag19A loud bang on the trunk of my car causes a high-pitched scream to rush out of my throat. I also bump my head on the window and nearly have a heart attack. What the heck? I whip around in my seat and see the reason for my panic. Xander, in all his hulking glory, is glowering at me from behind my vehicle. He’s looking at me like I’m responsible for some serious crime by just sitting here.

Am I supposed to get out? What does he expect me to do? He must have noticed me spinning out. I’m clearly not going anywhere, anytime soon. He can’t possibly expect me to walk home.

Even though I’m a bit distracted by my mental musing, I can still make out the yell from outside.

“Get in the house!” Xander growls out, accompanied by another solid pound to my trunk.

He’s literally going to let me into his place? I didn’t expect that at all. Maybe this will give us an opportunity to actually talk. Opening my door takes serious effort but I manage when I throw my whole body into the action. Of course this also causes me to tumble out into the snow. Can I get a freaking break?

I lay there for a moment, basking in my embarrassment, while waiting to see if Xander will offer me a hand. I don’t hear any movement so I tip my head back to make sure. Just as I figured. The butthead is still standing in the exact same spot with the scowl still firmly on his lips.

I make sure to groan extra loud while awkwardly rolling over, followed by ungracefully standing up. I almost want to take a bow because this whole situation is so ridiculous. Once I’m back on two feet, I make a big production of brushing all the white fluff off my clothes. Still no reaction from the big guy. I’m seriously beginning to wonder if there is something wrong with his brain functioning.

"Get in the house. I'll stay in the shack." Xander grumbles out and jerks his chin in the direction I'm assuming he plans to go. Considering the condition of the house, I was beyond concerned what shape the other building was in for him to refer to it as a shack. We might not be friends anymore but I still care about the man.

"Can't we go into your house together?" I question. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm scared to be in his home alone but I'm also worried about him holed up someplace even more rundown. His response is immediate.

"No." That's it. Just no. It would be a waste of breath arguing. I've quickly figured that out in the short time we've... conversed, if you could call it that.

Xander turns and heads toward the forest side of his property. I quickly lose sight of him due to the weather still wreaking havoc on visibility. Just in case he is still within hearing range, I decide to give him some gratitude. “Great! Thank you so very much, Xander. You have been really helpful!” I scream out into the wind. What a jerk.

RESISTING_NEW_March2017
Blurb:
He’s the ruthless lawyer with a not-so-little black book. And one simple rule as unyielding as his heart: nothing more than a month.

She’s the doctoral student helping to raise his niece. His brother’s best friend. And the valium for his soul he had no business wanting.

To be fair, she did ask him for advice—on what she could do to stop being ‘the nice girl’ for a little bit.

All he did was answer truthfully.

“Try something new that excites you.”

…Preferably him.
"A fast-paced, heartfelt, and fun read!" -- #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely

"This book has given me one of the worst (or best) book hangovers I've had in a LONG time! I absolutely LOVED it." -- Mama's Reading Break

FALLING_NEW_March2017
Blurb:
He’s her best friend. The good guy--the polar opposite of his brother Connor. The one everyone’s hell-bent on believing is her perfect match. But the thing is, that was just never an option for her with Brian.

...Until now.

For over a decade, through his high school sweetheart’s illness and eventual passing, Abby had been his pal, his rock. A second mother to his young daughter. His heart simply wasn’t free to love her then.
But it is now.
Now that Connor’s left her with a shattered heart to put back together on her own, Brian has exactly one chance to speak up or forever hold his peace.

CHOOSING_NEW_March2017
Blurb:
The one she never thought she could keep.

FINDING_NEW_March2017
Blurb:
Being a single dad who’s loved and lost twice in his life, all Brian’s looking for now is something casual for a change. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously unique and button-pushing Tessa for a crash course.

There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?
Tessa has no idea why she told Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know how to begin flinging a guy like him. Not only does the man have as many demons as she does, but he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped hoping for years ago.

A happily ever after.
“Emotionally charged with wonderful characters, Violet Duke made me laugh and cry in this incredible romance. One of the best I’ve read this year.” -- NYT Bestselling Author J.S. Scott

"I love the way Violet weaves real life into her fictional characters, and I applaud her for tackling issues most authors wouldn't think of using in a romance book." -- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

"Refreshing, engaging, sweet, and spunky all at the same time. This book tugs at your heartstrings in those oh-so-sweet ways...definitely a keeper!" -- The Naughty Vixen Blog

❥ Summer Trouble by Ruby Rowe



 Title: Summer Trouble
Series: A Ruby Romp Novella
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genre: Erotica Romance
Cover Design: Jo-Anna at Just write. Creations
Release Date: March 9, 2017
 

COLTON
I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.
She was the forbidden fruit.
The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.
The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.
But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER
I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.
Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.
 
 
        
 
 
 
Excerpt from Summer Trouble
© Ruby Rowe 2017


“Why are you doing this? You’ve never liked Zane in that way.”
“I can’t tell you.”
“Why not? Is he forcing you into this?” His protective nature unveils itself through a furrowed brow and clenched jaw. “Is he holding something over your head? What is it? Because I’ll drag him out of that house this instant and kick his ass.” Releasing my chin, he closes his hands into fists.
“Calm down, geez. I want experience, OK?” Averting my gaze to the grass, I pick at the hem of my shorts. “I thought maybe if I wasn’t so innocent, you wouldn’t feel guilty for touching me.”
Seconds pass, and I’m feeling foolish. He turns to walk away, so I cover my face with my palms.
Groaning, he mutters, “Fuck it,” and my hands are jerked down next. “Are you that determined to get with me?”
Biting on my lip, I nod. “I’ve had a crush on you for years, and I’ve been waiting for you to notice me.”
Sighing, he scrubs his face.
“Seriously? Summer, there’s nothin’ harder to do than to not notice you.”
Grabbing one of my hands, he drags me behind him. My feet start to slide as we travel down a small hill, getting closer to my brother with each step. About thirty feet away, he turns to me.
“If you’re so hell-bent on losing your V-card tonight, then you’re losing it to me, but don’t forget for a second that you asked for this. Now, giggle or something. Act like the other drunk fucks around here so your brother will let me drive you home.”
“But we can’t go to my house.”
“We’re not. We’re going to mine.”

About Ruby Rowe

She’s also author Scarlet Wolfe.

She LOVES Pinterest and spends hours on there, scouting inspiration for her stories.

She had never written anything in her life other than school papers when she started her first manuscript.

She loves bacon, and she posts about it so much that her readers send her bacon items. One even sent her bacon-flavored lip balm.

She had never read a romance novel before Fifty Shades of Grey, and it’s what inspired her to write her first novel.

She daydreams so much she often ends up in the men’s room at stores and restaurants.

She’s into BDSM.

She loves the ocean and dreams of living near it.

She was blessed to raise two amazing boys.

She has only read and written HEAs up to this point. She’s a sucker for a fairytale romance.
  
 
Ruby Rowe’s debut novella releases March 9, 2017; however, this is not her first book. She began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe, releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica romance and fell in love with the genre.
The pen name Ruby Rowe came about this year when she decided it best to keep her racier books separate from her young adult romances. She also has plans to branch out and release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be difficult not to include it in every story.
When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon, coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. ;) She hopes her writing will allow her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their fantasies.
