Everything in moderation. Including virtue.

I step off the plane in Madrid and meet his warm eyes. His crooked smile. His devastating charm.
Worse, he’s courteous. Honorable. Sensuous. Impossibly attractive.

Tavo awakens my desires—my body—without even touching it.
I don’t want to be attracted to him. I’ve made my promises.
My future has already been determined. I’m wearing a ring.

But I can’t control this pull to him.
He wants to explore my shadows.
I want to get out of the light.

I shouldn’t feel this way…
Problem is, I can’t restrain my heart.

EXCERPT:

Prologue

 

From the shadows, he emerges. The small pool of olive oil on his hands glistens in the candlelight and drips on the tile floor through his fingers.

Decadent.

Hedonistic.

Dark.

I glimpse his face as he approaches the bed, and he’s grinning wickedly, his hair messy and wild. Bare feet on a cold floor. Shirt off. Jeans unbuttoned, with a thatch of groomed pubic hair peeking out, his root showing.

My body tingles and gooseflesh erupts on my arms and legs.

His appraising eyes slowly, languidly, take in my form.

And I love it. I absolutely love the way he looks at me, like he’s appreciating every freckle, every hair follicle, every curve. My painted toes. My voluptuous calves. My ample thighs. And on up.

Another drip of olive oil plops on the floor. Part of me thinks it’s a waste. The other part of me loves this game.

The wait, the watching, makes me pant, and I breathe faster and faster as he comes closer. My skin’s glowing in his dim room.

What surprise does he have for me this time?

The mystery. I love the mystery and anticipation. I don’t know what’s coming next. I don’t know the plan.

I have no idea what pleasures are in store for me tonight, but I’m sure they’re coming.

He knows what he does to me. He knows I’m resisting writhing on the crisp, rough sheets, which are crackly from drying on a line out back in the cold, wintry Andalusian sun. We’ll soften them soon enough when our bodies join together, but right now they’re almost like brittle sandpaper, chafing my skin.

With a bite of his lip, trying to control his smile, he rubs his hands together, making a suction sound from the lubrication. The oil smells fruity, green—if you could smell a color—and bitter.

I’ve licked it on his skin enough times to know its taste. The complexity of the flavors. How just a drop on the tongue can make me want so much.

I love it.

Even though I shouldn’t.

My eyes stay on his hands. I’m obsessed with them, especially his callouses. Over time, they’ve built up on the pads of his palms, right next to where his fingers begin. The telltale sign of a life lived working outside, although it’s not what he wants. Sometimes his rough patches crack and bleed, a hazard of using a rake to beat the olives out of the trees.

A hazard of using his hands.

Those hands, those scratchy callouses now skim down my naked body, half-lit in the dark room, leaving a trail of oil. My hair splays across the pillow. His light touch makes my nipples point up. My pulse pound. My body ache. I arch up into his fingers, wanting more. Needing more.

Needing him.

We shouldn’t be doing this. This isn’t how my life is supposed to be.

But nothing can stop our desire.

What do I believe? I’m not going to fall in love with Boone.
Definitely not . . .

Excerpt
His wide, warm palm
grazed her lower back as they wove their way through the tables to the exit.
They crossed over the water garden in silence, slowing as they reached a fork
in the path. 
“Which way?” Deacon
asked. “I’ll walk you back.” 
“That’s sweet, but
you really don’t have to. It’s a five-star resort, not downtown Los Angeles.”
Deacon kept
walking. “True. But you know, I took you to dinner and all.” 
She arched a brow
at him. “It’s also an all-inclusive resort. Maybe I took you.” 
“Maybe you
did.” 
He flashed her that
slightly lopsided grin that hit her right in the chest. She conceded to the
walk, and together, they followed the brick path. The resort was dark, but
lights along the sidewalk lit the path and shined up the skinny gray trunks of
the swaying palms. It was quiet, and when they didn’t pass even one other
person, she was glad he was walking her back. 
She slowed as they
came to the breezeway leading to her building and pointed up the steps to the
second floor. “I’m up there, so…”
Deacon started up
the steps. “I’ll walk you to the door. I’m funny like that.” 
She probably should
have said no, insisted that she could make it to her door on her own. Because
of course she could. But she didn’t insist, just followed enormously glad she’d
removed the HONEYMOON banner from her door. 
They reached her
room, and she turned to face him. Just the two of them now, up here, alone at
her door. She felt a slight buzzing in her head that had nothing to do with
alcohol.
“Well, Clare of the
here and now.”
She rolled her eyes
at the reminder of her earlier word-vomit ramble. “It was nice to meet you.”
She stuck out her hand, hoping it wasn’t sweaty. 
“It was nice to
meet you, too.” 
It didn’t feel like
a simple handshake as he wrapped his fingers around hers. “I had fun tonight.
You turned what might have been a horrible night into something surprisingly
nice.” 
“I’m glad.” 
“Thank you for
catching me and saving my top and for dinner and talking and…” And maybe she
could stoptalking. 
“You’re welcome.”
A frog gave a low
croak, and another answered, but she figured the pounding of her heart was
louder. 
The buzzing in her
head grew louder, and she felt dizzy from looking into his eyes and staring at
his lips because she wanted him to kiss her. She wanted to feel those smooth,
firm lips on hers, to taste him and feel his arms around her.I’m losing my
mind.
“You’re beautiful,”
he said. “I’ve been wanting to say that all night.” He lifted his hand and
lightly brushed his thumb over her cheek.
Then he leaned in,
and she moved. Just…moved. In and up, her fingers twisting in the front of his
shirt. She was just falling into the taste of him, just getting that warm,
tingling flood of a first kiss when her brain fully registered that he’d been
leaning in to kiss her cheek
“I’m sorry.” She
swallowed hard, felt a stinging heat flooding into her cheeks, and wished desperately
to disappear. Deacon was staring at her in complete confusion. That made two of
them. “I’m… really sorry.” 
She spun to her
door. A stiff wind sang through the open-air hallway, slapping her hair across
her eyes. How she got her key in the lock, she had no idea. Mumbling one more
apology over her shoulder, she opened the door and closed it behind her. She
stood, heart pounding in mortification, her lips buzzing. 
The champagne
glasses and fruit and cheese tray had been cleared. The bed had been turned
back, and the damn swans were back, nestled in the center of the bed and
kissing right on their terrycloth lips.

RELEASE BLITZ – Co-Ed by Rachel Van Dyken


Title: Co-Ed
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: April 24, 2018

Blurb
Four guys. 

Constant moaning. 

And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my
first name is Shawn. 

They don’t discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants)
all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I’m
wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door. 

My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies. 

But the rest of the college campus? 

They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship
service that makes big promises. 

Breakup? They’ll glue you back together again. 

Depressed? They have the magic pill. 

Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you’ll forget all
about it. 

And broken hearts? Well, that’s their specialty. They’ll fix you.

For a price…

I swore I wouldn’t get involved. 

But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn’t put up with their
BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull. 

They. All. Charged. 

But one holds my attention above the rest. 

Knox Turner looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more
appealing by the day. Though he’s hiding something — all of them are. And the
closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.

You’ve read reverse harem books before — but you’ve never read one like this.
It’s not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…

Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren’t patient men. 

Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You’re welcome.

Excerpt
I would regret it later – my heart knew it – but I was a
caretaker by nature, so when I grabbed his hand and gave it a tug toward the
bed, I was surprised he followed.
Even more surprised that when he joined me in his bed, he didn’t try to pull me
into his embrace; he didn’t even touch me, just laid there and stared up at the
ceiling like the monsters were going to come back.
“You need to sleep,” I whispered, turning on my side and facing him.
“Or you’ll be even grumpier in the morning.”
He smiled at that. “Am I really that grumpy?”
“Scale of one to ten?” I shrugged. “You flirt with an eight or
nine on a good day.”
“Shit.” He took a deep breath. “For the record, I’m sorry.”
“For?”
“Being myself.” He didn’t offer any more explanation. Instead, he
turned away from me, tucked a pillow under his head, and slept.
We were strangers.
And still, when I woke up with the bed empty…
I realized.
It was the first time I’d slept through the night since transferring, and it
would happen to occur in my enemy’s bed.

5 Star Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

I loved this story so very much! I’m new to Sarah Castille, but this is probably one of my favorite stories this year. I think it’s because I feel like I love this story. Chris and Lilly are everything you could want in a couple that has lost their way. I understand that feeling. Trying to get back to a better place, Chris reaches out for help.

I’m not saying much more about this story! It’s super short, but worth the time to read. I loved this story because again I can relate. It’s hard to get back to basics once you are lost. But there is always hope. Amazing job Sarah Castille!
