After waking up in a strange home, Ian’s only companion is the woman who saved him. Undeniably drawn to her, Ian finds himself wondering if it really is possible to love again.

He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life.

All former Navy SEAL Mason Lawson craves is solitude. Unfortunately, his new neighbor won’t allow him the peace he so desperately needs. Between the traffic and the music, Mason is constantly on edge—not exactly what the doctor ordered for someone recovering from a bullet to the leg. However, when he finally has enough and confronts his neighbor, nothing can prepare him for how hot he’d get for the teacher next door.

Piano teacher, Skylar Jernigan, loves everything about the town of Jessamine—from the quaint Main Street shops to the people who own them. Unfortunately, once she’s chewed up and spit out by her sexy neighbor, Skylar begins to question her decision to move to a new town. Until, that is, she learns he’s suffering from a war wound and refuses to have anything to do with his family.

Now, Skylar is determined to help Mason recover—mentally, physically and socially—until he turns the tables and sets out to seduce Skylar right out of her meddling ways. Only seduction turns into something more and soon, Mason can’t stop looking for excuses to be with her. But when the Navy wants Mason to reenlist for a dangerous mission, will Skylar be too irresistible for him to leave?

Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from… But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can’t ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her–the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

The last man Judith Worth wants to see again is Charles Trent, the Marquess of Ashford—the man who spent summers at her family home, who kissed her one magical night…and then heartlessly ruined her father. But when a tricky business matter arises, he’s the only one she can ask for help. With any luck, he’ll engage a servant to take care of the matter, and she won’t even have to talk with him.

But Ashford has never forgotten Judith. He knows she will never forgive him for what he’s done, but when offered the chance to assist her, he arrives in person. His memory of Judith may have haunted him, but it pales in comparison to the reality of the vivacious, beautiful woman he rediscovers. Throughout his life, he has always done what is correct.

Author: Lex Martin

Release Date: April 27, 2015

Cover Design by: Krista Ritchie

What’s the worst thing about wanting a sexy NFL football player? Everyone else wants him, too.

After catching my boyfriend getting deep-throated by a skanky cage girl, I’ve learned my lesson – never date a professional athlete. Never. Besides, I have more important things to worry about, like not blowing my shot to make it as a broadcast reporter. I won’t let anything get in my way, not even the new “it boy” of the NFL and my hot-as-hell neighbor.


What’s the worst thing about getting death glares from his new neighbor? It doesn’t make him want her any less.

I’ve worked my ass off to make it to the pros. The last thing I need is the complication of a relationship, especially since my last one was a total train wreck. But I can’t stop thinking about the feisty girl next door with the smart mouth. And I’d love nothing more than to show her what to do with that mouth.


Friends with benefits might be the best idea he’s ever had. Or the worst.


Kissing Madeline is a companion novel to DEAREST CLEMENTINE and FINDING DANDELION. Each book is a stand-alone.


** Lex Martin is giving away an ARC A DAY in her fan group until Kissing Madeline releases on April 27. You can join here: http://on.fb.me/1oJN3mZ **

The Birthday Tag


Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek celebrated her 25th birthday last February 24 and she created this Birthday Tag for her post. Check out her post HERE.

It isn’t my birthday but I would like to think of this as my welcoming a new life here in Japan. Join in the tag and I hope you’ll enjoy doing this one too.


The Birthday Tag

1. What date is your Birthday?

My birthday is on October 4, 1985.


2. What is your favourite kind of Birthday cake?

I love chocolate cakes and caramel cakes. The picture below is from a very famous cake shop in Manila, Estrel’s Bakeshop.

*Photo is not mine. Credit goes to owner.



3. What is your birth-stone?

The October birthstone is Opal. 🙂 opal


4. Which celebrities/famous people share your birth date?

I do not know any celebrity with the same birthday as mine so I googled them. And color me surprised. Here are some celebrities that I share a birth date with: Anne Rice (yes, the author), Dakota Johnson (yes, of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie), Susan Sarandon, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Alicia Silverstone.


5. What would be your ideal Birthday present?

Well, aside from books? I’d probably love a free trip abroad, maybe in Europe? Gosh, that would be an ideal birthday present.


6. If you could invite anyone famous to your Birthday party, who would it be?

Tom Hiddleston! Not even a second wasted in arriving at this decision.


7. What is one of your favourite/funniest/happiest Birthday memories?

Well, I always love celebrating birthdays with friends and families so sometime when I was in college, I think, my mom told me that we will be having dinner on my birthday and I thought it will just be my immediate family. As it turned out, the whole clan was there at the restaurant to surprise me and can I just say I got a little teary-eyed.


8. If you could choose a different period in history to be born, when would it be?

I’ve always enjoyed historical romances so I would love to be born as a member of the ton during the England Regency or Victorian period. (I know this could be a little problematic because the technology plus hygiene developments leave much to be desired lol :))
