 About THE KNOCKED UP PLAN:

There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and wild — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.

Right?

****

There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. After all, my job is like a coach and my latest assignment for the good of mankind is to create a fail-safe, battle-tested, proven guide of what to do or say to get a woman to fall into your bed — I mean, fall for you. So when Nicole says she’s game to work through my list in a hands-on way, I take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, anywhere, any night? Except . . . what if I do?

Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoonworthy hero you will fall madly in love with!

A Note from Lauren:

 Hey there! I have exciting news to share about the book that has been known as THE WILD ONE. You guys know that I like to keep things fresh and new, and I also like to change things that aren’t quite working as well as they were in the past. That’s why THE WILD ONE is getting a new title, a new cover, AND a brand-new release date—more than TWO WEEKS earlier than originally planned! I am so excited to bring you THE KNOCKED UP PLAN on June 23 (instead of July 10). This is a brand-new standalone story!

You may be wondering WHY I’m making this change. Let me tell you—when I first picked the title more than a year ago, I had no idea the direction the story would take. But as I was writing the book a few months ago, the storyline and characters—including a hero you’ve never met before who will melt your heart and panties—surprised me. This isn’t a story about a woman taming a wild playboy.

This standalone romance is about all of the fun, hotness, and heartfelt emotions that come when a single woman asks her gorgeous, jaded, sworn-to-be-single-forever good friend to get one very particular job done. What happens next when he agrees to provide the bun for her oven are lots of hot sexy times and heartfelt moments. The original title just doesn’t suit the storyline for Nicole and Ryder.

 I love THE KNOCKED UP PLAN because it says exactly what the story is about—it’s a fun, sexy and heartfelt story that’s full of hot baby-making sex and emotions that will bring a happy tear to your eye. The best news is that I will release THE KNOCKED UP PLAN two and a half weeks early! I’m even more delighted to let you know that I have listened to all of your requests and comments and will be releasing this book on a Friday!! Readers have repeatedly told me that Friday is their ideal release day, so you will get THE KNOCKED UP PLAN on Friday, June 23! If you preordered THE WILD ONE on iBooks, B&N, Kobo, Google Play or in paperback, don’t worry—you don’t need to do anything! You’ll get THE KNOCKED UP PLAN now with that preorder, and you’ll get it on June 23! THE KNOCKED UP PLAN is not yet on Kindle, but will be a few days before its release!

 So get ready to dive in to THE KNOCKED UP PLAN and watch Nicole and Ryder’s story heat up—on the page and in the sheets!

So let’s get this straight.
This is a story about romance.
Well, it’s not a story. I mean, it’s not something somebody made up. It’s about me. And yeah, in case you’re wondering, I’m a guy.
Surprised? Sure you are. You figure those words just don’t go together. Romance, with a capital R. Guy, with a capital G. You’re probably sitting there and smirking. What could a dude possibly know about romance? You figure we’re big on sex. But romance?
You’re right.
Romance is not a male thing.
And that’s exactly my problem.
The bottom line is that whatever you think you know about men and romance is pretty much correct. You figure we’re big on the F-word as long as it stands for Fuck and not Forever.

Don’t miss this dirty-talking quarterback hero, and check out this fantastic cover created by Helen Williams.

The first rule of football–don’t screw with a streak.

My career is finally looking up, and I’m leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I’ve ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.

But it’s not. And now I can’t get her out of my mind. Even when I’m playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life.

And it turns out, she’s not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team.

***

I only have one goal this season–do my part as the team’s lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There’s no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he’s the quarterback.

Forbidden love is hell…

Confident and quirky, Jo Sanford thinks her boss is God’s gift to women–and she couldn’t be further from the truth. Devilishly handsome, Luc DeVille will stop at nothing to lure his administrative assistant right into his arms–and bed.

Over Rafe Goodman’s dead body…

Rafe, Jo’s best friend, refuses to sit by and watch as Luc tries to win the heart of the woman he’s always protected. After all, Rafe is her guardian angel. Suddenly, Jo’s caught in the middle of a battle between good and evil. But the closer she gets to the fire, the hotter it burns. Now, Jo’s going to learn that when love battles lust, Heaven and Hell collide.

FullSpreadCover-Draft

Excerpt

To my surprise, Mr. DeVille scratches Atticus behind the ears instead of pushing him away. “Since we’re stuck here, what should we do?” Finished with his sandwich, he wipes his mouth with his thumb. I’d have been more than willing to lick it clean for him.

A pounding on the door interrupts us. Dadgumit, just when things are about to get interesting with Mr., er, Luc. I scurry to the door, intent on getting rid of whoever it is. I find Rafe holding a bag of food and two cups of coffee.

“Hey, I figured your power was still out, so I brought you some coffee and breakfast.” His eyes scan my small apartment, narrowing when he spies Luc.

Mr. DeVille smirks. “What impeccable timing. Goodman, is it?” He casually swings his legs over the side of the bed and steps into his pants.

“Yes, sir.” Although polite, Rafe’s voice has an edge to it. The tension in the air snaps like an impending storm. “The roads are clear, although Mrs. Cabot called and said not to come to work today since schools are still closed and the power remains off for much of the area. Here included, I see.”

“How astute of you to notice. No wonder I pay you the big bucks. Of course Mrs. Cabot said to stay home. It isn’t her losing money, is it?”

Mr. DeVille pulls off my sweatshirt, revealing those cut abs. I stare unabashedly, and Rafe snaps his fingers in front of my face. Luc buttons his shirt, glaring at Rafe the entire time.

“Well, Friday. Thank you for the hospitality. I’m sure since Goodman flew here on the icy roads to check on you, I’ll have no problems getting home. I suggest you take today to study for your classes, and remember I’ll be more than happy to help with your homework assignments.” His eyes flash with desire, and my cheeks heat.

Rafe snarls, looking positively feral.

“A-Are you sure the roads are okay? Would you like a cup of this coffee before you go?”

“I only brought two cups,” Rafe protests.

Shocked by his rudeness—and to our boss, no less—I quickly offer, “Mr. DeVille can have my cup.” What has gotten into him?

Ignoring Rafe, Mr. DeVille turns to me as he shrugs into his coat. “That’s quite all right. Thank you, Friday.” He gives me a conspiratorial wink and a smile.

Rafe, in comparison, receives a cool nod. The hair on my arms stands on end when Mr. DeVille stops and turns to face my friend. I must be having some sort of low blood sugar event because I swear it looks like the rims of his blue eyes have turned the color of a hot stove eye. I blink and find him glaring at Rafe, and the look is returned in kind. Good thing we aren’t living in a century past. If we were, I’m quite certain there would be a duel at fifty paces. He leaves without saying another word.

Rafe slams the door with a muttered, “Good riddance.”

I cross my arms in front of my chest. “Thanks a lot.”

“You’re welcome.” He ignores my sarcasm.

I sigh and gratefully accept the warm to-go cup. I can’t stay mad at him for long; he’s my best friend.

And he has coffee.

Lis’ Review

In Tempting Jo, Nancee Cain takes us back to a world where guardian angels come to earth to guide us mortals through life’s difficulties. We meet Rafael who becomes Rafe Goodman (all puns intended), best friend to Jolene Loretta Sanford and her guardian angel who takes his job seriously. Jo is a small town Alabama girl who goes to the big city to try and “better herself” by taking a job as an Administrative Assistant to Lucius DeVille. She falls madly in lust with her boss. Luc is suave, handsome, and rather pompous, and Jolene’s convinced she can be the seductive type to win him over if she just tries hard enough, studies her word-a-day calendar then actually uses the words, and is the efficient assistant Luc can’t live without. As it turns out, Luc is planning Jo’s seduction for reasons well beyond giving her a chance to “live a little.” His efforts are thwarted by Rafe who is there to watch over her and protect her, but emotions soon get in the way for him too. And then what’s Jo to do? Both men are attractive, and attracted to her; she’s stuck in the middle of a battle over which one will ultimately claim her.

 

This story is a classic good versus evil, right versus wrong, temptation versus choosing the right path. But what makes it special is Ms. Cain’s way of portraying the quirky characters so that you love them and cheer for them right from the start. Jolene’s so Southern, her mama named her Jolene Loretta because she liked country music. Jo tries to lose her accent, but as they say in South Alabama, that apple didn’t fall far from the tree. When she talks she says things like, “As my mother would say, sugar wouldn’t melt in my mouth. She has all kinds of cliché sayings like this. She dishes them out like fried chicken at a Baptist funeral.” Jo accuses Rafe of doing the “clam jam” when he walks in on her and Luc as they are kissing and starting to move “toward second base.” And when she gets mad at Luc, who insists on going out in the pouring rain, she tells him “Fine, but don’t whine to me if you die of pneumonia, sir.” Needless to say, both Rafe and Luc are charmed and think she’ll be easy to convince to their way of thinking, but Ms Cain shows us that no matter her background or life circumstances, when the going get tough, that steel backbone will guide her through.

 

The battle over Jo grows more heated and intense as the story progresses. Ms. Cain’s characters never do the predictable, which is part of what makes this story another winner for the author. She treats us to all their quirks and mannerisms and by doing so we come face to face with people we would love to meet in real life. Madge and Gabe make another appearance in this book and I really hope their stories are coming in future books. And God has a true sense of humor. I highly recommend Tempting Jo, an devilishly fun read with a heavenly ending.

Blurb:
2015 was a turbulent time…
As the world anxiously watched, Scotland voted for political freedom from England.
With the vote, frumpy Amelia MacRory became Scotland’s only hope. As the last direct descendant of Mary Queen of Scots, fire ran in Amelia’s blood. Only she could defend the rights of the people. After being kidnapped from her American home in the dead of night—and almost killed in the process—she was forced to become Queen of Scotland. And as a killer closes in, the Royal Scottish Guards must step in and protect her — whether she likes it or not.
Can she survive a world of intrigue, subterfuge, and assassins that have been designed to bring down the newly independent country? Or will she lose it all—including the man she loves…?
Excerpt:
A glint in the trees off to the left of her house proved his worst fears realized… They were not the only ones hunting Amelia. They had to move quickly.
“Shooter in the woods! Go! Go! Go!”
Jacob swung his door open and took off towards the assassin. He had to get there first. They could not let the shooter make it to the house. It would throw their plan into chaos. The future would be lost.
Jacob stealthily ran across the road. The shooter would know that they were there soon. Will and Darren were not far behind him. The shooter was moving towards the house. However; something caught his eye. Bringing him to a momentary halt. There was another glint in a tree…
Two shooters!
He turned slightly and motioned Will to the house. His brother would see to the woman. He and Darren would take care of the shooters.
Holding the gun in front of him he aimed towards the shooter in the tree. A light came on in the upstairs of the house. The shooter was aiming towards the bedroom. Towards the woman, Amelia.
Jacob fired.
