Sales Blitz: Driven to Temptation by Melia Alexander & Tempting Mr. Wrong by Kerri Carpenter

Driven to Temptation
Driven to Love #1
By: Melia Alexander
Released June 13, 2016
Entangled Lovestruck

She’s a gorgeous distraction he can’t afford…or ignore.
Aidan Ross might be an engineering genius, but people skills? Not this soldier’s forte. Thankfully, a trusted friend is accompanying him to a make-or-break tradeshow…but then a bubbly redhead hops into his truck, claiming to be his new road trip buddy. She’s a gorgeous distraction he can’t afford. Or ignore.
Delaney Harper comes from a family of engineers—maleengineers. With several impressive projects under her belt, she’s on a mission to prove she can hang with the big boys, too. But cracking the sexy, closed-off CEO is tougher than she expects…and hotter than she could have imagined.
With the tempting woman disrupting his carefully planned schedule, Aidan can’t focus on the road, much less their upcoming presentation. The future of his company is riding on this trip, and if they’re to land a huge account, he has to keep his head—and his heart—in the game…

Melia Alexander is the author of sassy, sexy, fun contemporary romances, but is also fortunate to spend her week days at The Male Observation Lab (a.k.a. her job at a construction company) where she gets to observe guys in their natural habitat. Though they often behave like typical alpha males, in many instances she's seen through their personas to the heart of who they really are - the heroes of their own stories.
A native of Guam, Melia traded in warm, tropical breezes for the rainy Pacific Northwest. She's an avid reader who also loves romantic comedies - preferably with a glass of CabSauv and a box of chocolates nearby. In her free time, she's busy conquering her CrossFit fears: ring dips, muscle snatches, and the dreaded 800 meter run. Her family appreciates her attempts at cooking and cleaning, although she spends it mostly daydreaming about her characters, which sometimes results in a burnt meal and a half-cleaned house.

A little temptation never hurt anyone…
Lance Townsend craves freedom after years living a structured existence in the Army. But just as he’s about to start on his bucket list, Lance receives an unexpected request: check in on his goddaughter. The problem? The adorable little girl’s aunt is the one woman he’s never been able to forget.
Carly Quigley can’t believe her brother’s best friend, the man who jilted her years ago, is at her door. He claims her brother asked him to check in on her niece and their fixer-upper, but all either of them can focus on is their undeniable attraction. Carly knows Lance is counting down the hours to leave, which makes him the wrong man for her. Unfortunately, the wrong man has become oh-so-tempting.

Each book in the Wrong Man series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother's kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times.

Once she turned to romance novels, she couldn't get enough of books with happy endings, so she started writing her own. Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.

People keep dying around Harper MacLain. Try as she might, she can’t stop bad things from happening to those she loves. When her closely guarded secret lands her in the middle of her ex-boyfriend’s investigation, she’s in over her head. She hates that Detective Lucas Sullivan is in her life again, tempting her to fall back into bad habits…and his bed.

When Harper left him, Lucas tried not to care, burying himself in his job instead. Then Harper became the job. Now they’re on the run, and all he can think about is keeping her safe…and his hands off her. Lucas knows she’s the key to solving his case, if he can keep them alive long enough to do it. And that’s the trick…because falling in love can kill you.

 “Lucas, they killed him. I don’t know what to do.”
You’re going to move on,” he said. “Put this behind you.” It was the only thing that worked. The first time was the worst, because you didn’t know if you could move past it. It never got easy, but the first time was definitely the worst.
Without another word, he squeezed peach shampoo on her head and lathered it up. Before long, Harper was helping him, scrubbing with a frenzy, and then she couldn’t take her clothes off quickly enough. The sopping jeans were the hardest, and then she was ripping at her bloodstained bra and panties, scrubbing Joe’s blood off her skin. He helped her clean up, keeping his touch impersonal, and by the time he was done, he was shaken by the effort to control his reaction.
Then she was holding him, eyes closed, rubbing her wet body against his, her lips open on his chest, her tongue tasting the water on his skin. He told himself she was confused, traumatized. She needed care, not passion. So Lucas struggled past the jolts of his thwarted desire and forced himself to breathe. If he delayed stilling her hands as they caressed his body, he told himself he didn’t want to upset her. If he kept his arms around her, pressing her against him with more force than necessity, he told himself the tub was slippery. When her caresses and kisses brought him to the point of forgetting the danger they were in, he stilled her hands with a gasp. She didn’t know what she was doing, and he did. He stepped back, trying to do the right thing, but unable to stop himself from drinking in the sight of her; her delicate instep, long legs, slender hips, and the heaviness of her breasts. He wanted to look at her all day and through the night, but instead he turned the water off. It was hard to ignore his arousal, her questioning gaze, but he did. Then he grabbed a large, fluffy towel, and wrapped her in it before stepping out of the tub.
Everything will be okay.” Lifting her out, he cradled her in his arms.
Harper buried her face in his neck, and the sensation gave him tingles, to the point where he had to take a moment to let them run their course. It had always been that way with them. One touch, and he lost his mind.
