Aspire to Love by Allyson Young

NEAR PERFECTION
Haley Snider thought Warren Chalmers was the perfect Dom, so she transformed herself into the perfect sub. A woman in love is truly blind, because Warren can be such an ass.
Warren doesn’t really know what he wants, and questions the very perfection he apparently sought. Haley leaves Warren before he can reject her, unveiling a surprising temper and steely determination. He is both intrigued and forced to look at himself. He doesn’t much care for what he finds, and is determined to change, to seek Haley out and really get to know her.
Realizing that her obsession with Warren has kept her from being true to herself and him, Haley decides to embrace life differently. Upon reconnecting with her, Warren discovers his best friend Gordon Sinclair has a different idea in mind for them all, and that life can be filled with both friendship and love. And hot sex.
TRUE PERFECTION
Haley Snider left her selfish Dom and sought solace with her best friend. Gordon Sinclair facilitated Haley and Warren Chalmers’s reunion—with a twist. He proposes a ménage relationship. But Haley isn’t so sure. She’s afraid of getting hurt again and also wants to pursue her career and live her life outside of the bedroom, something Warren hadn’t accepted before. She resists their attempts at building a relationship and then tragedy strikes.
She blames herself, believing she has been selfish and her desperate, guilty feelings cloud her thinking. She won’t walk away this time but will wait for Gordon and Warren to realize she’s brought them too much trouble and tell her to leave. In the meantime, she will try to make amends, reverting back to pretense.
It takes considerable effort on her men’s part to help Haley face reality and accept what she truly needs and deserves.
ABSOLUTE PERFECTION
Georgios Andreas’s wife, Jane, left him and died under mysterious circumstances. Afterward, he avoided relationships outside of club play.
At a ceremonial claiming, he meets the sister of the submissive, there to bear witness to her sister’s claiming. Iris Snider draws him, initially because she looks like Jane, but he quickly realizes she is so much more. He is powerless against the attraction.
Georgios sweeps her off her feet, insisting she too is submissive. Iris, for the first time in her life, leaps before she looks. She falls in love and submits to Georgios, hoping for more than a D/s relationship, and he, too, dares hope for more.
Iris then sees a picture of Jane and is devastated by her resemblance to Georgios’s dead wife. She refuses to take the leavings of a ghost. Georgios gives her space, inadvertently putting her in danger. Jane’s killer is still out there, and he, too, has seen the resemblance. And he hates George.

Blade's Ghost 500 by 750Emmaline Force has dedicated her life to using her gift of seeing and hearing ghosts to help the living understand the spirit world.

Tender, loving moments are interspersed with nightmares of a malevolent spirit murdering his wife and unborn child. Once Emmaline sets foot on his ranch, the pieces begin to fall into place, and he recognizes the woman of his dreams. He finds himself torn between this timeless love and the ghost who threatens to take Emmaline’s life—again.

Kissing Bandits Welcomes Jo Grafford

Jo Grafford: The Interview

13KB: Welcome to Kissing Bandits Blog! Tell us a little bit about yourself!
 
Jo: Hello, and thank you for having me here on the Kissing Bandits, Michele! I write romance across the genres. The common theme is the high stakes you’ll find in all my novels. Heroes who are willing to risk it all for the brilliant, sassy women they love. 🙂
KB: Tell us a little bit about your most recent release.
 
Jo: DESIGNED FOR YOU (For You Series book #1) released this week. It’s pure, heart-pounding suspense about an interior design entrepreneur named Jillian Lang who is targeted and harassed by a cyber stalker sending the same creepy message over and over: “I know who you are.”
KB: Pick out one of the best lines in your novel. What do you love about it?
 
Jo: I love writing about characters who are real. Flawed. Relatable. Here’s a snippet of conversation between Jillian and her P.I. friend, Cam Bradford (You’ll be seeing a lot more of this yummy guy in book #2):
 
“I can’t survive on beer and brots.”
“Not true. I’ve survived just fine on beer and brots for years.”
“Then it’s far past time to add a few healthier options to your diet.”
He made a sound of disgust. “I get to push the cart.”
“That’s so childish.”
“No. Jumping on the lower rack and riding the cart across the parking lot is childish,” he corrected. “I intend to do that, too.”
 
Cover_DesignedForYou_3000X4800KB: What got you started as a writer?
 
Jo: Great question! All I know is I’ve been writing and creating stories since I could hold my first crayon (according to my parents who loved my show of creativity while privately lamenting the occasional wall mural).
 
KB: What are your top three guilty pleasures?
 
Jo: Chocolate, wine, and reading way past my bedtime!
