Can Poppy find the courage to risk triple the love—and triple the heartbreak?

Poppy Maguire is tired of being a loser. Emotionally neglected as a child, she wants to find the courage to leave her family and the job she hates. She desperately wants to make a change. Little does she realize how much of a change sexy brothers Cody, Michael, and Trevor Paraby will bring to her life when the friendly shoulders they offer turn into so much more.

Comfort turns to passion and Poppy learns what life could be like in the arms of not one, but three men who love her. But what happens when the pink line on a pregnancy test doubles and she's expecting twins, courtesy of one of the Parabys?

The brothers blow her mind by offering her the family and love she's always longed for. But do they realize what they're in for? Cody is moving a little too fast, Michael may not be in for the long haul, and Trevor is a bit self-centered. In order for Poppy to have the extraordinary love she fears she hasn't earned, everyone is going to have to do some growing. But can she break free from the bad seed of her abusive family and have the courage to bloom?

Calculated revenge, unexpected passion…

Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancée, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.

Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.

Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?

Matchmakers sometimes need a little help with their own love lives.

Coral Nixie is living her dream. Her cottage is blocks from her beloved beach and a haven for those seeking answers for their relationship problems. And so what if her own love life is non-existent? Helping others and surfing should be enough for anyone, even a virgin, slightly lonely witch.

Gage Middleton is a successful author and relationship counselor. His "factors" can indicate the success of any relationship, and he's about to propose to his own perfect match. Until Ms. Perfect dumps him and he has to go on TV and defend his theories against a ridiculous hippy witch with the most beautiful eyes he's ever seen.

On a dare from the host, the two set out to follow another couple on their first three dates. Gage and Coral have nothing in common—and neither do the man and woman they follow—but they hadn't counted on their own attraction to each other. Can they let go of their stubborn beliefs and accept that there's nothing to prove? It's Just Love.

"They don't have to," Rain replied, lowering her voice. "You just need to handle me with care."

Smiling, Griffin pressed his lips to hers. It was slow and gentle, never pushing too hard, and as their lips mated their hands explored. He stroked her back, squeezing when he reached her bottom and lifting her leg to hook over his hip. He pressed his growing hardness against her, eliciting a gasp that his tongue captured. It was intoxicating but far too gentle. Rain felt like a coiled spring, the power waiting to erupt. He'd fought to keep his dirty thoughts at bay, reminding himself that they would be gone soon. It hadn't worked.

His tongue slid into her mouth; her dress rising to expose every inch of her thighs. It was only when his fingers smoothed up to trace the elastic of her underwear that he felt the first drop of rain on his skin. She didn't seem to notice, either that or she simply didn't care. He deepened the seduction, angling his head so that he devoured her mouth, and rolled his hips against her. She pushed back, forcing the connection between his hardness and the needy flesh between her thighs. It caused Griffin to tear his mouth from hers, groaning but rocking his hips in a silent demand. The rain was beginning to pelt down harder, starting to soak through their clothes. His brain was fogged by lust, the ability to complain or to demand they go indoors lost.

"What're we doing, sugar?" he asked, cupping her face in his hands.

"We're kissing in the rain, Mr. Holt. Bet you've never done that before either."

Her thighs clenched around his hips, eliciting another grunt. She giggled, pushing at his chest and jumping up when he rolled off her. They were both drenched now; the blanket soaking up the mud of the lawn. Griffin frowned up at her as she held her arms out and began to spin, just as she'd done in the lane on his first day. He watched her, mesmerized. He adjusted the tent in his sweats, though he didn't try to hide it. She'd already felt it, so it would be futile. He blinked when she towered over him, trying to see her in between the raindrops.

"Come with me." She sighed, holding out her hand. "I want to show you something."

"Really?" He cocked a brow. "And will I like what you have to offer?"

"Get your mind out of the gutter, Holt. Though you never know what I'll expose if you're a good boy."

Griffin jumped up, taking her hand. Thoughts of the renovation were forgotten as he let her lead him away from the house.

A Time to Give Thanks

For those of us in the United States, this week we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving, where we take time to give thanks for all the good things in our lives (and eat lots of food, and for one day we don't worry about how many calories those foods contain).

This year I'm very thankful for the growth and success of our company. I'm thankful for our wonderful authors, who write such great stories. And I'm thankful for our staff—the editors, the cover artists, etc—who work so hard on preparing those stories for publication. But I'm most thankful for you—our readers—because without you, Beachwalk Press wouldn't exist.

I've asked some of our authors to share what they're thankful for this year…

M. A. Stacie: I'm thankful for my hubby and three amazing boys. And my life would be boring without my magnificent friends.

Tamaria Soana: I'm thankful for family and friends!

Ashlynn Monroe: I'm thankful for my family, my friends, and the fact that I'm able to do something I love (writing). There's no better feeling than knowing the thing that makes me happy gives someone else an escape from their everyday worries.

Sidda Lee Tate: I'm thankful for the wonderful support I receive from my family.

Kaylie Newell: This season, I'm thankful for so many things. Family, wonderful friends, our health. I'm also thankful for my brand new writing career—something I've dreamed of since I was knee high to a grasshopper :) I'm thankful for my publisher and amazing editor. And I'm especially thankful for new readers who decided to take a chance and pick up a book by an unknown author this year. Not just my books, but all of my fellow new authors' stories. What a gift that is, and one I'm incredibly lucky to have.

Ella Jade: I have a lot to be thankful for this year. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful, happy, and healthy children. My boys are my world, and I'm grateful to share my life with them. I'm also appreciative of the readers and friends I've picked up this year through my writing. My stories have always been a hobby. I've been getting lost in my plots and characters for years, but to finally be able to share my creations with all of you as an author is a dream come true. Thank you for taking this journey with me. I wish all of you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day.

Pepper Anthony: This year, I am particularly appreciative of my excellent health. Last year I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I went through surgery, five months of chemo, and some icky radiation treatments. While I did very well with most of the treatments, I did develop what is known as "chemo brain". My thought processes got foggy and my creative flow just kind of dried up. As an artist and writer, that was just about the most distressing part of the whole thing. I was afraid that I might be among the 40% of cancer patients who do not recover their full cognitive abilities following chemo. Happily, that has not been the case. Not only did my recent CT scans show "no evidence of disease", but my mind has fully recovered too. The human body is an amazing, resilient hunk of stuff. This Thanksgiving, celebrate your good health along with me!

Lacey Wolfe: What I'm thankful for has been on my mind a lot lately. And the one thing I keep coming back to is my husband. When we found out I was pregnant with my son (who is now 8), he agreed to let me stay home and raise our children. Both my children are now in school and instead of telling me to go get a job that brings in a steady paycheck, he still lets me stay home and write all day. He never says anything if the house is a mess or the laundry is washed but in dire need of being folded. He listens to me complain as well as gets excited about my accomplishments. I've been with my husband for 11 & 1/2 years and I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else.

Mary Wehr: Although I'm thankful for my good health and having a loving, thoughtful husband by my side for the past thirty-three years, this Thanksgiving is going to be very, very special. Beachwalk Press came into my life and my life-long dream of becoming a published author has come true. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Patricia Bates: Gosh, there's so many things I'm thankful for. My family—including my wonderful son. He's the biggest miracle in my life and a constant source of inspiration and joy. My writing—the ability to share some of my creativity with others. And the fact that I have amazing publishers. I've been truly blessed to have so many wonderful contacts in this industry and I'm extremely thankful for the chances I have.

Stephanie Beck: 2012 brought lots of challenges, but I'm more thankful than ever. This year, I'm especially grateful for:
* My nephew Noah–born five weeks early, but doing great and safe at home with his mama and daddy who love him
* Nine years with my wonderful husband
* My three beautiful, healthy, loving children
* An exciting year of writing–and ambition to make next year even better
* My home with space for my kiddos to grow
* My church family who welcome us every day and share their joys
Happy Thanksgiving!

Tabitha Rayne: I am thankful for the creativity of human beings—seeing or experiencing something that someone has made inspires, sustains, and moves me. I am even more thankful that they share it. I'm thankful for most everything—love, health, joy, and even for the hard times as they make the good times more precious. But most of all, I'm thankful for fizzy astro belts (a very special candy) and good coffee.

Tara Mills: I love Thanksgiving. That’s when my three boys come home for a visit. My husband makes the turkey (a buttery champagne basted, croissant stuffed bird to die for), and I have an excuse to pop the first cork early and make mimosas for breakfast too. We crank the tunes and dance around as soon as there are signs of life from the bedrooms. After two pots of coffee are polished off, someone will suggest playing a game; it could be darts, ping pong, or a lively board game. Later, we'll take a hike through the woods with the three dogs. This year we'll have our new grandson coming up too. He's just four months old now. There's always time for lounging in the living room with your nose in a book or your Nook. We're a family of readers. Or my daughter-in-law will start a crossword puzzle and call out to everyone for help. Finishing becomes a group effort. But our boys have to earn their delicious dinner, and the alcohol that follows, by splitting and stacking firewood first. I love their ruddy cheeks when they come back inside, carrying the fresh clean smell of autumn with them.

And now, we want to know what YOU are thankful for. Everyone who leaves a comment will have their name placed in a drawing. On November 30th we will randomly draw four names, and those people will win a Beachwalk Press eBook of their choice. So don’t be shy—tell us what you’re thankful for!

Author Spotlight – M. A. Stacie

1) What is your writing schedule like?
I try to write every day, even if it's only a hundred words. I'm not one of those authors that can spill out thousands of words a day—my biggest would be about 3k. It's probably down to my need to procrastinate.

2) Where is your favorite place to write?
I always write in my living room in front of the TV. My kids are usually around while I write so I have to be accessible. The interruptions can make concentration difficult at times, but I really wouldn't have it any other way. The kids see me working and writing and get as excited as I do when a manuscript is accepted.

3) What type of environment do you prefer when you write? (ie complete silence, background music, etc)
My kids and the TV/music are always filling the silence when I write.

4) Are you plotter or a panser?
I'm a plotter, but then I am an organized person by nature. There have been a few occasions where my plot has altered slightly from my framework, though that's normally for the better. I have tried to write without a basic plot (just having a few random ideas) but it didn't go so well.

5) What is the most difficult or challenging thing for you as a writer?
The hardest pill to swallow will always be harsh criticism—those reviews that outright hate your book/writing. At first they really, truly upset me, though now I have learned it simply isn't possible to please everyone that reads my work. It still smarts when I stumble across them, and I doubt that will ever change.

6) Is there a genre you enjoy reading, but would not write?
I adore reading paranormal romance, namely vampire or dragon shifter books. I have tried to write a paranormal book, but the WIP keeps stalling. So much so that I now think I'm more suited to contemporary or erotic romance. I revisit it often, but in comparison to the works I read, mine seems 'paranormal light'.

7) What advice would you give to a new writer?
To just WRITE. So many people focus on certain rules—like publishers not liking prologues, etc. They get bogged down in what they're told people want, instead of writing the best story they can. There are plenty of authors that 'break the rules' each and every day. If you write what you want, rather than what others tell you, you keep your story true and publishers will see that.

8 ) Who are some of your favorite authors?
I read a lot, anyone following me on Twitter or Facebook will attest to that, so I have many favorite authors. My top three would be Sherrilyn Kenyon (The Dark Hunter Series), Christine Feehan (Carpathian Series), and Nora Roberts when she writes as JD Robb (In Death Series).

9) What are you reading at the moment?
I've been reading a lot of dragon shifter books, recently discovering the wonderful Thea Harrison's Elder Races, and Coreene Callahan's Dragonfury series. But I'm always partial to a rugged cowboy or a broken man (like in Sweet as Sin by Inez Kelley).

10) What's your favorite way to procrastinate?
Reading. Seriously, my laptop is virtually always on my knee but more than half of the time I'll be reading and playing on Twitter/Facebook rather than writing. I like to think of it as research rather than procrastinating, though. LOL!

11) Are you a collector of anything?
My husband would tell you I collect shoes, handbags, and books as I have each of them in every room of our house.

12) What's your biggest pet peeve?
Far too many to mention! I live with four males, so I have a lot of 'moments'.

13) Give us some links where we can find you, please.
