McKenzie McCormick moved back home for one reason only, and falling for a soldier isn’t it…

Fort Stewart is only a few miles away, which means her hometown has its fair share of soldiers. But Kenzie chooses to steer clear of them, as she still struggles to cope with the grief of losing her father to war. All she wants to do is help her aunt take care of her ill grandmother—until a gorgeous green-eyed Army Captain moves back into town.

The last thing Captain Remington Bennett expects to find is a pretty brunette while out on his morning run…

Intrigued by the woman he passes almost every morning, Remy is determined to get to know the brown-eyed beauty. Kenzie is reluctant to get too close, but his persistence in pursuing her slowly breaks down her defenses, turning what started out as nothing more than a nod and a shy smile into something neither of them could have predicted.

War has already taken too much from her, and Kenzie can’t afford to lose her heart to a soldier…

Even though the mutual attraction becomes too strong to ignore, Kenzie keeps fighting her feelings for the handsome Captain. But when Remy is called out on a mission and she’s faced with the possibility he might not come back, Kenzie realizes she may have let her only chance at love slip through her fingers.

Now that Kenzie is finally ready to embrace love with the kind of man she has spent her entire life avoiding, it might just be too late…

 

 

 

| About the Author | 

 

 

Alison has been writing for over a year now. Her debut book Finding Love (October 2015) was published by Siren Publishing. Her following books Needing Your Love (November 2015), Found My Love (December 2015), and Fighting for Love (January 2016) were also published with Siren to finish the Learning to Love series.

Her desire to see her books on shelves led to her next work Chasing Dreams (April 2015) She submitted it for publication with Limitless Publishing and was thrilled that it was quickly accepted. Excited to reach that goal, she moved on to the next series she had in mind and wrote Saved By a Soldier (June 2016), My Broken Soldier (July 2016), Forever My Soldier (August 2016), and A Soldier for Bella (September 2016).

Alison enjoyed reading as a child and found her passion for it again in 2011 when E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey was released. Her love of reading was re-ignited and she continued reading other books in the same genre. In the summer of 2015, she decided to give writing a try and two weeks later Finding Love was born. As soon as she finished the first book, she began writing the second book in the series. Her third book was finished by the time Finding Love had been accepted for publication. Alison discovered she has a passion for writing and has spent the last year meeting new readers and sharing the love she has for writing.

Married to her own real life hero, Alison lives with her amazing family in Massachusetts where she was born and raised. She loves having her own personal inspiration right at home and when she’s not writing she enjoys playing soccer, basketball, and football with her son.

SAVED BY A SOLDIER by Alison Mello, @alisonmelloauth @limitlessbooks

Saved By a Soldier

by Alison Mello

 

Saved By A Soldier_jacket (2)

Release Date: June 14, 2016

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

 


Synopsis

Patricia Ann Fitzgerald is no man’s arm candy…

Refusing to entertain her mother’s ridiculous notion that she should become the perfect little housewife for her ex-boyfriend Ben, Patty escapes to her father’s lake house to focus on what matters most to her. She has to break through her writer’s block and start her next book.

Medically discharged from the service and suffering from PTSD, Carter Montgomery is still trying to get his life back in order…

When Carter’s father Jackson suggests a week at the lake, it’s not only so he can gain a little clarity about his future. Jackson has other plans for his recovering son, intending for him to watch over his best friend’s daughter while she’s on a solo writing retreat—an idea that doesn’t please Carter at all.

Patty finds it hard to get any work done when her attention keeps diverting to the handsome stranger next door…

Patty is persuaded to attend a charity event, despite knowing her ex will be in attendance. When Ben rudely interrupts Patty’s dance with her father and drags her off the floor, Carter is quick to intervene. He’s tired of admiring Patty from afar, and refuses to see her treated that way. Ready to ditch the stuffy event, Patty escapes with her savior someplace where they can finally talk.

Ben always gets what he wants, and he isn’t willing to let Patty slip away…

Patty fights to preserve her blooming relationship with Carter from the critical eyes of her mother and the scheming ways of her ex. Will Carter manage to get his life back in order in time to save Patty from the life she never wanted?

 “She had his protection, but she wanted his love.”

About the author

Alison Mello is a wife and stay at home mom to a wonderful little boy. She lives with her amazing family in Massachusetts. She loves playing soccer, basketball and football with her son.
After having her son, Alison started reading again and fell in love with Contemporary Romance. Reading made her happy and gave her something to do when she had downtime. As she started to read more, she started to notice things she really enjoyed in a book and things she didn’t. She began to have ideas for writing one of her own. One day she literally woke up and started writing. She realized that if there was ever a time for her to write, it was now. She had a part time job to give her something to do. The hours at work were slow and she was bored with what she was doing, so while her son was off enjoying his friends over summer vacation she got started.
Alison finished the first book in two weeks and decided that she really enjoyed writing, so she kept going. She already had ideas in mind for books two and three, so she kept writing. That is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the line, one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael, a character from Finding Love, needed his own story. That is when Alison added the fourth and final book. Alison hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.

Thank you for choosing to read my book. I am a wife and stay at home mom to two wonderful children. My family is my world and one of the reasons I started writing was so I could be home for them. I was born in raised in Massachusetts where I still live today with my amazing family.
As a child and young adult I was never a big reader and I think it was because I never found a genre or a series I really enjoyed. After having my son fell in love with Contemporary Romance and I have built up quite the collection since then. As I started to read more, I started to notice things I really enjoyed in a book and things I didn’t and realizing what I didn’t enjoy really made me want to write more.
I literally woke up one morning and started writing. I was bored and unhappy with what I was doing in life and since I had an idea in mind for the start of a book, I sat down and went for it. I realized that if there was ever a time for me to do it, it was now, because my hours at work were slow and the kids were off enjoying their friends for summer vacation.
I finished the first book in two weeks and decided that I really enjoyed writing, so I kept going. I already had an idea in mind for a book two and three, so I kept writing and that is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the lines one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael needed a story to so I added the fourth and final book. I hope you enjoy my books as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
I am so glad I started this writing journey and I hope you will stay with me for the ride. I will definitely be writing more in the future. Chasing Dreams is one of my favorites and is my first stand alone, but stay tuned for the next book to come!

Fighting For Love – Learning to Love 4

Available now at www.bookstrand.com/book/fighting-for-love

[Siren Classic: Erotic Contemporary Romance, HEA]

Sylvia Knox is a well-known family court lawyer who is being threatened by the husband of one of her clients. Michael Larson is one of the top security guards at S&C Security and is sent to protect Sylvia after his detail at Seth’s house is over.

Sylvia and Michael want each other from the start but when the threats towards Sylvia start to get serious will Michael be able to keep her safe? Time is of the essence and they need to quickly figure out who it is and how he is getting information. He already knows she has security and makes sure to inform her that he could care less and isn’t giving up on getting what he wants.

On top of this, how will Sylvia react when Michael brings home a seventeen year old foster child, Chandler? Will she send Michael and Chandler packing or will she agree to help? Can their relationship survive the obstacles constantly getting in their way?

 


 

Adult Excerpt

“Are you sure you want to do this?”

She nods. “Michael, I have never been more sure of anything.” Thank God I carry a condom in my wallet at all times. I give her a huge smile before I kiss her again hard and rough.

She pulls away and says to me, “we don’t have long before Courtney gets in.”

“Well, I guess I better give you what you want then.” I kiss her one more time before I spin her around and bend her over the arm of her couch. I smack her ass. “If we are doing this, I’m in charge, not you, do you agree?” She nods and I slap her again. “Say it!” She’s panting and I love it.

“I agree!”

I smile. “Good, for now I’m going to give it to you hard and fast because we do not have a lot of time, but later I will take better care of you I promise. I slip her thong down her legs and she steps out of them. As I stand, I gently rub my fingers up the inside of her leg until I get to her inner thigh. She shivers with anticipation. I slowly rub my fingers through her folds. “Fuck you are so wet for me.” I slam two fingers deep inside her and she whimpers. I finger fuck her hard while I unbutton my pants with my other hand and once they are undone I remove my wallet and pull the condom out with my teeth. Sylvia is panting and moaning on the couch with her hips riding my fingers. “Lay still woman.”

I pull my fingers out of her to slip the condom on and I watch as she lays completely still waiting to feel my cock enter her and fuck her until she explodes around me. I slip the tip in and pull it back out.

“Michael, don’t be a tease.”

I slap her again and leave a beautiful pink mark on her ass. “Who is in charge?” I groan.

She pants. “You! Please Michael it has been so long, I need this.”

I slam my cock into her without warning and she screams out.

“Yes!”

I pause leaving my cock buried deep inside her. After a minute, I start pounding her so hard I’m shifting the couch and I don’t give a fuck. I squeeze her hips hard, slamming her against me so she’s meeting each thrust.

“Michael, I’m going to come!” I know she’s asking for permission so I continue pumping in and out of her.

“Let it go!” I growl and she responds beautifully. I feel her pussy tighten around my dick as she starts milking me for my seed, so I empty my load in response. I lean over the couch and kiss her beautiful back right between her shoulder blades before I pull out.

I grab the end of the condom as I pull out of her so I can slip it off and tie the end. She stands taking a deep breath as she tells me there is a trash can in her attached bathroom. I smile as I adjust my pants and then walk over to dispose of it. On my way back she meets me outside the bathroom door.

“That was pretty amazing.”

I kiss her and say, “You have seen nothing yet, but trust me I plan on showing you plenty more. First, I have to get you another security guard before I get fired.”

She grins at me and says, “Make the call because I want much more of this.” She rubs my dick through my pants.

I grab her hand. “Courtney is probably already here, behave yourself and I will take care of you later.” I kiss her hand and walk out of her office feeling like a new man.

Adult Excerpt
“I’m not going to fuck you tonight T. Not until I know you are ready, but I will take care of you.”
He kisses and bites at my hips and then moves back to my belly and up to my breasts, while his hand roams down into my panties. His fingers slide between my folds and he groans, “My god woman you are so wet for me.” He takes my juices and rubs them over my hardened nub. I swear I am going to combust. It is sensory overload, his lips on my body, his hands now buried deep inside me and his rock hard cock pressed into my hip. My hips are grinding into his hand and it feels so good, but I don’t know how to tell him I can’t come that way. I have never had a vaginal orgasm.
“Chase,” I moan, “stop a minute.”
“What’s wrong baby,” he looks at me full of concern.
“I don’t know how to say this,” I pause as my cheeks heat from embarrassment.
“What baby. No more hiding remember.” he says gently. “It’s just that I have never been able to, you know, come this way.”
He smiles at me and says “you have no need to be embarrassed baby. I will work on it with you, ok?” He winks at me, “I don’t want you to stress it ok?”
I nod as I bite my lip and he moves his hand back to my nub, I instantly start to feel the build of excitement as he rolls it around with his finger. I grind my hips and moan out in pleasure. He is nibbling my earlobe and whispers, “let it go baby!” After a few more moments he pinches it slightly and it sends me over.
“Oh Chase, that feels so good.” my legs have clamped shut on his hand as my entire body shakes. I must be louder than I realize because he covers my mouth with his to muffle the noise. He pulls away from kissing me removes his soaked fingers from my panties and sucks them clean.
I look at him wide eyed as he says, “you taste mighty fine, T.”

Will Seth stick around and protect Abbey and Brian or will he run when he realizes just how crazy Abbey’s ex really is?

Review: Elizabeth Neal **4.5 out of 5 Hearts from Cariad Books.**

Finding Love is Alison’s debut novel. I really enjoyed the story. I admit that at first, I didn’t feel like I was fully “into it.” I was wrong. (Yes, I mentally said that in my Ron White voice. LOL) I had to put the book down so I could adult for awhile & realized I couldn’t stop thinking about the characters. I wanted to get back to it so I could see what happened next. I’d become fully invested in Seth, Abbey, & Brian. Maybe it’s just me, but I think sometimes the best stories are the ones that sneak up on you. They burrow inside your bookworm heart & stay with you until you’ve seen the story through.

This story is one of those. These characters grabbed onto me. I wanted to hug Abbey & throat punch her ex, Chris, for everything he put her & their son, Brian, through. Abbey suffered emotionally & mentally due to her ex-husband’s callousness & my heart broke for her. Thankfully, her son is a sweet young man & takes after his Mom. He adores her & detests what his Dad did to her, to them. (Yes, I changed it to just say HER son, because in all honesty, she raised him. She nurtured him, took care of him, taught him how to love, how to be a good kid, & how to treat others. His father was never around, he never took the time to be a Dad. In all honesty, they were better off without him & life was about to get a whole lot better for them.)

Enter Seth. Seth & Abbey lock eyes while she’s out shopping with a friend. Abbey has finally decided, with some urging from her friend, Sarah, that she needs to find herself again. She lost her way due to the actions of her ex & needs to start living. Neither Seth nor Abbey act on their obvious connection, but fate steps in & says, “Wait a minute here. You two are not following my plan for you. I will not be thwarted.” Later in the week, they’re both out with their respective friends & see each other again. This time fate gives Seth the push he needs to introduce himself and so it begins. *I can just picture the Foreigner song, “I’ve been waiting for a girl like you,” running through Seth’s head. Yes, I’ve aged myself with this song shout out, but I don’t care. 😉 It’s a classic and so perfectly fits the situation.* Seth has also been unlucky in love & was deeply hurt in the past. Abbey is exactly who he needs & so is Brian. He needs them, just as they need him.

Seth runs a security company with his friend, Chase. Seth is a great guy. I have to say, I kept waiting for some flaw to appear like a bad pimple or there to be a huge misunderstanding that would separate them. There wasn’t & I was pleasantly surprised by that. The book didn’t need it. There was plenty going on with Seth & Abbey each finding a way to work through their own personal baggage, decide that they’re starting something special, make sure Brian was okay with the status change, & yeah, keep that jerk, Chris, away from them. It sounds like all this would be overwhelming, making the reader feel like too much is going on, but I never felt that way. In my opinion, everything flowed together nicely. The ending…it about killed me though. While it’s not a cliffhanger, per se, there is one big issue left unresolved. I actually breathed a huge sigh of relief because once I finished the book, I immediately did a search on the author, & then did a happy dance upon seeing that book two, Needing Your Love, will be released on November 5th. I have to know what happens with Sean (Seth’s friend) & Tracey (Abbey’s friend), because they got together in this book, but by the end, things weren’t all rainbows and sunshine with them anymore. Sean wanted more and Tracey feels unable to give it, regardless of how much she likes him. I will be jumping on that story as soon as it’s released. I have to know what happens next.

I’m eager to see Alison grow as an author, to find her voice, her style, and embrace it. I definitely plan on being along for the ride & hope to see you there. I have a feeling it’s going to be a fun journey.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

Sean agrees to her arrangement until he discovers he really likes her and wants more than the benefits she is offering. Sean finally convinces her to give them a try when she discovers she has an ex-fling who has been watching her and wants her back.
Will her crazy ex win her back or will Sean protect her and show her what a real relationship is like? Her ex could just end up proving her point of why she felt a relationship was not a good idea in the first place.
This book is not stand-alone. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Review-5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling – and smoking hot!
ByLady Phoenixon December 6, 2015

Wow! Where to start?! Alison’s books are insanely addictive. I got both books today and read straight through them like my life depended on it. This author has mastered the ability to grab her readers’ attention and keep them guessing what will happen next. I’m thoroughly addicted and I can’t wait to see more of her work. The characters are relatable and there’s plenty of humor/playful banter and intense action mixed in with smoking hot sex. These have me begging for more. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!!! These books are great by themselves or as a series.

There are a few times I really wanted to choke the main character, but at the same time, I totally understood where she was coming from.

 

Adult Excerpt:
He leans in and gently kisses me on the lips. I instantly melt because I love how his lips feel pressed against mine. His tongue pokes out to lick my lips, begging for entry, so I open to him and he tastes of Sean and beer and I absolutely love it. I climb over his lap to straddle him as I deepen the kiss. He pulls away and starts kissing my neck and nibbling on my ear as I grind into his cock. I can feel him growing hard as his hands rub my legs to my ass where they stay while I am grinding into him.
“Babe, if you keep rubbing on me like that I am going to have a mess,” he says as I am moaning at the feel of his hands running up my back under my shirt. He unclips my bra and rubs his hands up and down my back as we continue to kiss each other hard. He pulls my shirt over my head. “Fuck I love your tits, baby.” I put my hands behind me on his knees and arch my back so my large breasts are in his face. He leans forward grabbing one and putting my nipple in his mouth, he sucks on it biting it gently and I can’t help the moan that escapes me. He switches and plays with the other nipple until that one is hard as pebbles too. He starts kissing my cleavage as his hands glide up my back pulling me towards him, kissing his way up my neck and back to my mouth.
He pulls away panting and hard as a rock.
“Tracey, I have no control with you. I am sorry, do you want to slow down?”
“Sean, please just take me to bed, I don’t know if I can slow down either.”
“Are you sure?” he says with concern in his voice
I climb off his lap and try to pull him off the couch but he doesn’t budge. “Sean, I am so wet for you, please don’t make a girl beg.”
He smiles and stands up to follow me to bed. As soon as we are in my room, he closes the door and asks me, “Who’s in charge?”
I smile and bite my lip. “You are.”
“Damn straight!” he reminds me with his raspy authoritative tone.
He tells me he wants me naked by the time he has his boots off. Luckily that is easy because I only have leggings and a thong on, so I quickly peel them off and stand waiting for him.
He pushes me onto my bed and tells me to lay on my back, so I do. He climbs up on top of me and tells me he is going to eat my pussy until I come hard and then he is going to spank me and fuck me. I am so excited I smile and nod.
He starts at my breasts again and works his way down my stomach slowly kissing and biting as he goes. I start to squirm and he tells me if I don’t stay still he will tie me down and start all over again, so I instantly lay still, because I know he is dead serious. I have been waiting for this moment since our first night together. He continues down to my pussy to start teasing me. He licks my folds then moves his tongue to my clit licking it hard, after a moment he starts kissing my legs then going back to my clit again, I swear it is to torture me. “Please, Sean!”
“Please what, Tracey?”
“Please make me come.”
“Should I lick you like this?” He starts licking my clit hard and fast and I am so hot for him I am already on the verge of an orgasm and he knows it.
“Or should I finger fuck you like this?” He slams two fingers deep inside me and my god I want to explode, but again as my orgasm is about to tear through me he stops.
“I definitely enjoy licking your clit so I think I will go back to that and fuck you with my tongue until you explode all over it.”
He starts licking me hard and fast and all of a sudden his tongue is inside me and he fucks me with it. “My god, Sean, I am going to explode.” I can feel him smile against my pussy as he starts to lick my clit again and that is my undoing. My orgasm is tearing through me as my legs shake uncontrollably and then stiffen around his head. Once my orgasm has settled, he starts kissing his way back up my body to look me dead in the eyes. “That is mine, do you understand me?”
“Yes.”
“Good now roll over.”

About the author

 

I am a wife and stay at home mom to two wonderful children. My family is my world and one of the reasons I started writing was so I could be home for them. I was born in raised in Massachusetts where I still live today with my amazing family.

After having my son fell in love with reading Contemporary Romance. As I started to read more, I started to notice things I really enjoyed in a book and things I didn’t and realizing what I didn’t enjoy really made me want to write more, so I literally woke up one morning and started writing.

I am so glad I started this writing journey and I hope you will stay with me for the ride. I will definitely be writing more in the future.
