Holidays conjure up many thoughts- long, chilly nights, snuggled up by the fire, bare feet tucked under the one you love. Some are hallmarks of summer when skin is warmed by more than the sun. There is the after Thanksgiving dinner nightcap, as the smooth, sultry burn of whiskey warms your chest, rendering your limbs heavy or include lazy kisses and wandering hands beneath your best dress on a romantic Valentine’s Day date.
But sometimes, Grandma gets boozed up and passes out at the table, your brother gets caught rubbing one out under the fireworks, your kids catch mommy kissing Santa (and not on the lips), your special new toy winds up in the wrong gift bag, a goat steals and wears your sexy new thong and watching the ball drop takes on a whole new meaning.
In other words, the holidays can be magical, but sometimes, they’re also just f*cking awkward.

claims he’s a Manang; a half-man, half-angel being who lives in a
world called Urian. Side note: he may or may not be insane.

to a mansion in the middle of a grassy field surrounded by forest,
and partnered with a black-haired, blue-eyed man with a surly nature
who makes her heart spin, Taryn trains. For what, she doesn’t know.
She’s told she’s someone special; a Charmed, and the key to winning

I looked in the
direction of the door. “Go away.”
The door swung
open, and Luke marched for the bed. Even in the gray cast morning I
could see his lips pressed together, and that his eyes were promising
all kinds of retribution. It was a small consolation that he smelled
sweet, with a dash of bitter. From what I’d encountered so far,
that basically summed up Luke. Or maybe it was bitter, with a dash of

hair off my face and glared back. “What do you want?”
What did I
tell you yesterday?”
I don’t
know and I don’t care.” It was too early for this. “I’m going
back to bed. Leave.”
I flopped to my
side and pulled the thick blanket up to my chin, closing my eyes with
a contented smile on my lips. The blanket was immediately torn from
me, along with all the warmth it provided. “Hey!”
Training for

It’s in
the middle of the night,” I cried, grabbing for the blanket.
Luke kept it
out of my reach by putting a hand to my forehead. “It’s six in
the morning. It’s time to get up. I’ll be back in five minutes.
If you’re not ready and—” He leaned forward until our faces
were inches apart. “—positively cheerful, you won’t like what I
do next.”
Oh, yeah?”
I taunted as he strode from the room. “We’ll see about that, you

for some training. I even gave him a smart salute. I caught his smirk

The perfect job, a dream guy, and one chance to screw it up…

 Title: Do Not Disturb
Series: Resort Romances #1

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 15th, 2106
When a luxury beachfront hotel in the OC conducts a mass hire, Katie Flanagan’s ninth in line.
Is it her dream job? Possibly.
Will it help her escape living with her parents for the rest of her life? Hopefully.
Add in two hot new hires: one who is her type in all the wrong ways and one who has her questioning what she really wants and needs. Either way, she has a choice to make.
When Katie discovers a secret document aimed at downsizing the staff, she finds her voice and pens a press release that places the hotel, and her, at the center of national coverage. When the corporate line is drawn in the sand, the question becomes – will she cross it?
Havoc, heat, and hotel madness… welcome to the back hallways at the Waterfront Point Resort.

Carmen chuckled and then signaled for the server. “Listen, Katie, the night is still young.” She tilted her head toward the bar where Keebler Boy and Crabby Sandy stood side by side. “What about Chris?”
“The Keebler Elf? There’s not enough beer or bourbon to ever make that right.”
Carmen slapped the table with her hand. The echo caught their attention. Chris and Sandy turned toward us, but so did another Huntington Hopeful, Bogart. I hadn’t even noticed he’d left our table.
“Oh, Katie, you’re hilarious.”
“I’m glad the truth is so amusing because that little man up there….” I shuddered. “No thank you.”
“I concur.” Carmen’s accent was thick with certain words. “But I wasn’t talking about that Chris.”
“Oh, Bogart?” I shrugged. “He’s… I….”
A blonde with razor-cut hair and a tan that she wore as well as her faded 501s, black tank, and Converse set a fresh IPA in front of each of us. “This is from the gentleman at the bar.”
She didn’t turn, but I knew it had to be Bogart.
Carmen put two fingers in her mouth and gave a sharp whistle. It felt like the entire bar looked over at us. “Gracias!” She raised her pint toward Bogart.
De nada!” He raised a pint in return.
I smiled.
The server pulled out her electronic keypad. “So it looks like you ladies are set for drinks. How about some appetizers or dessert?”
“Actually, speaking of dessert,” Carmen said. “My friend here is having a difficult time choosing between two guys.”
The blonde leaned in. “Which two men are we choosing between?”
“We’re not having this discussion,” I said.
“The guy playing pool,” Carmen said without taking her eyes off the server, who gave a nod in TJ’s direction, clearly knowing who we were referring to. “And the guy at the bar. Not the albino. The one with the great ass who just bought us this round.”
The server didn’t even turn around, but I did look over her toward Bogart. The heel of his boot was propped on the foot rail that wrapped around the bar, and his hands gripped the edge of the bar’s granite countertop. His jeans did cup his ass, but it wasn’t just his ass I noticed. The sleeves of his shirt were rolled up and he held on to the bar like he was about to do a push-up. His shirt stretched across his back, revealing muscle tone and definition. He had a perfect V-shaped torso, with a narrow waist that broadened to wide, powerful, ready-to-be-clawed-into shoulders.

Fault by Nicola Hudson
Release Date: October 21st
Series: Define
Genre: Contemporary Romance

ebook (3).jpg


Nobody’s perfect.

We all have our faults.

GRACE DAWSON is desperate. Her father is dead and her mum is in prison for killing the man who attacked her. She is about to turn eighteen and homeless. Her options are limited. Life is bleak.

NOAH CARTER is twenty-four, a writer, and burdened by his family responsibilities. Forced to live in the same small town he grew up in, he knows it would be wrong to wish for a different life.

When Noah offers Grace a place to stay, it is an act of generosity that she has little choice but to accept. As they spend time together, their feelings grow beyond friendship and they become increasingly important parts of each other’s lives. But it’s not just their lives they have to think about and the challenges they face threaten to overwhelm their relationship. Both make mistakes but can they overcome their own faults to forgive each other’s?

FAULT is a story about love, loss, family and forgiveness. It’s a story about life.


noun [folt]

  1. A flaw or defect which prohibits perfection.
  2. A weakness or defect in character.
  3. Responsibility for a mistake or wrongdoing.
  4. (verb) To find error in; to blame.

Fault is the third novel in Nicola Hudson’s Define series but can be read as a standalone from Curve and Heart, although it does contain spoilers if read out of sequence.



I tried to scream but my brain was stuck on registering details: the cold kitchen counter under my cheek, the painful pressure of a drawer handle sticking into my hipbone, the stale alcohol on his breath as he groaned in my ear.

“It’s been a long time since I had a redhead. I bet you’re already all fired up, aren’t you?” He pulled at my leggings, the weight of his upper body keeping me pinned in place. The material refused to cooperate, stretching outward rather than moving down, generating a grunt of frustration.

“Please, don’t,” I cried as his hand ferreted between my legs, my clenched thighs unable to offer enough resistance. “Please. Please. Please.” My begging fell on deaf ears as he tugged again at my waistband. I knew what was going to happen and couldn’t believe that this was my fate. Vague memories of my brother Jake’s attempt at teaching me self-defence skirted at the edge of my consciousness, but I couldn’t move enough to stamp on his instep or hit his windpipe.

I knew I couldn’t give in.

Not yet.

I squirmed and shifted, fighting harder than I had ever needed to before.

“Stop it, you little bitch,” he spat before grabbing my hair and slamming my head against the counter. “Do you like it rough? Is that what you’re after?” Bile burnt my throat at the sound of his zipper. I heard the rip as the material of my leggings started to give way in his hands, my life and soul leaching out of me at what it meant.

I stopped moving.

I stopped breathing.

I stopped hoping.

And then there was noise, the cry of an animal in agony, and the dead weight of his body slumped on mine. I couldn’t work out what was happening. His guttural moaning had nothing to do with pleasure, and he repeatedly pushed into my back, but made no contact anywhere else. I took advantage of his loosened grip on my hair to twist my head.

And saw Mum stood next to us.

Holding a knife.

Dripping blood.

As she lunged for him again, I managed to pull myself away from the counter and felt the weight of him slide off me. Pain shot through my arm as the knife caressed my skin, leaving a red line in its wake.


Silent waves of rage rolled off her, rendering her oblivious to my cries. She launched at him again, even though he was slumped, unmoving, in a growing pool of red. The sound of knife plundering flesh made me retch and I tugged at her, causing us both to slip in the blood. As we fell to the floor, I managed to knock the knife out of her hand and pull her to me.

“Mum, what have you done?” I tried to make eye contact with her, but she was like a wild animal, unable to make a connection. Even on her darkest days after Dad died, or her most hung-over days, I had always managed to get through to the hidden her. But not in that moment. She was beyond me, lost in a world I didn’t know how to get to.

A gurgling sound brought the realisation that the monster may not have been slain. The dilemma of what to do next was overwhelming. Who needed me the most? Mum still appeared unaware of my presence, staring into the abyss of her mind.

That left him.

I moved across the floor on my knees, warm blood soaking into my clothes, and turned him over. His front was covered in congealing blood and his eyes were glassy, staring into the same space Mum was inhabiting. I couldn’t hear or see any signs of breathing so I felt around his wrist, not knowing how or where to find a pulse but compelled to do something.

“Nine, nine, nine” was the whispered instruction from behind me. I looked at her, but her eyes were still elsewhere. Running to the hall, I picked up the phone, dialling as I returned to the carnage.

Looking back, I wish I’d sat there with her for longer before making that call. I wish I’d had the chance to try and find her, my mum, one final time. I wish I’d thought about how to protect Josh from it all. I wish I’d thought about whether I had the strength to deal with the ensuing chaos.

About the author:

Nicola Hudson is a British writer who discovered what was becoming known as New Adult fiction the same week she downloaded the Kindle app; within a week she was hooked into a one-clicking frenzy. After reading Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and Easy by Tammara Webber, the urge to write her own novel, but with a British slant, was overwhelming.

Her first novel, Curve, was published in 2013 and her second novel, Heart, was published a year later. Although romance is an important part of Curve and Heart, readers will know that Nicola also writes about serious, some may say dark, issues and their impact on young women. This theme continues in the final book of the Define series, Fault. She works full-time with teenagers and so it seemed like a natural step to write about them as well.

Nicola lives close to Birmingham, England with her husband and cat. When not writing, she is reading. When not reading, she is probably reading about reading, flicking between social media sites and Goodreads. Probably with a bar of chocolate at hand.

Her ‘behind-the-scenes’ exposure to the music world and her love of rock music is the inspiration for her erotic rock star romances.

Paradise. Axel did a number on my credit and my heart. It took five years just to make a dent in the amount. I made bad choices before I met Jordan. I had
to end our relationship because I knew where it would lead. I was attracted to guys that were bad for me but good in bed. It was the story of my life… “
