One-on-one instruction never felt so right—or so wrong.

There's nothing unusual about Mia Page's attraction to the young science teacher at the middle school. After all, she's not the only one who finds him enticing. But when he pulls her son aside to ask for her phone number, she knows she's in serious trouble. Since her divorce four years earlier, she's been out of circulation, choosing to focus on parenting instead, and she's not entirely sure she can handle an entanglement with the sexy Mr. Walden.

There are also other reasons why getting involved with Curt would be a bad idea. He's two years shy of thirty, and she's on the downside of that unmentionable number. He's adamant about never having kids, and she has a son. Even the guy's romantic gifts are suspect. Energy saving light bulbs? He has to be kidding.

On the other hand, he's fun, sweet, and smart. He stimulates her intellectually, emotionally, and Lord help her, physically, opening her eyes to life outside her comfortable world. Yet their differences quietly gnaw at Mia even while she succumbs to their undeniable chemistry.

As their romance deepens, so do Mia's fears that Curt will eventually hurt her. On edge, all it takes is an innocent comment to provoke her into drawing first blood. Mia recklessly wounds Curt, learning only too late that this blade cuts both ways. Frantic to make amends, she fears it might be too late to admit the feelings she's tried so hard to suppress.

And don't forget to check out Tara's newest book, Sexual Politics, releasing on May 19, 2014.

Sexual Politics

Is the scandal worth it? Only she can answer that.

For two years Justine Hubbard has played the supportive wife role for her husband in public…and nowhere else. Senator Gary Hubbard's philandering ended her love for him. But sometimes there are reasons people decide to maintain the illusion of a happy marriage when the relationship is over.

Living a lie until after the election wasn't an issue—until she met Sean O'Donnell. She can't fool the perceptive photographer. He understands her. He wants her. After feeling invisible to her husband, that's an intoxicating discovery. But having condemned her husband for his hushed affairs, it would be hypocritical to give in to her desire for Sean.

All it would take is a whisper of scandal for her husband's political enemies to bring him down. She wouldn't dream of sacrificing Gary's career, their causes, and her own good name. But how can she stay away from Sean now that she's fallen for him?

When kink and reality collide, compromise and love keep everyone satisfied.

After living a BDSM lifestyle for ten years, Polly is devastated when her husband and Dom dies. Although she is capable of supporting her daughters and maintaining her home, she aches for the companionship of a partner and the dominance of a sexual master.

A decade has passed since David lost Polly to his best friend. Even after all those years, the angel who got away still holds his heart. The death of Polly's husband brings them back together, but leftover feelings throw their hearts back to where they first began—young and in love.

Caution: Filling is Hot by Tara Mills
Genre(s): Contemporary Romance
Length: Novel
Price: $5.50

Some men should come with a warning.

Here's a recipe to share with friends. Take one prickly demonstration cook, handle carefully. Add one lonely widower, slightly beaten. Mix gently. Fold in two six-year-olds, one at a time to temper the batter and avoid scrambling. Then finally, add the mother with an agenda—but just a dash, because she's spicy. Whip into stiff peaks then spread over an ungreased sheet for best results. Method of cooking can vary, however—Caution: Filling is Hot.

Piper Frost is taking a break from men when contractor Chad Thomas crashes her cooking class and turns on the charm. His persistence annoys her but she's already melting, even without his sneaky mother and conspiring twins in the mix. But just when things are really starting to sizzle, disaster strikes. Can Piper save her recipe for happily ever after or is it already ruined? Grab your oven mitts and find out.

Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love?

Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school.

Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He's signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don't mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason.

While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after?

Craves the Angst gives:
4 stars to The First Night
"…a smokin’ hot, lusty little read that definitely draws you in and holds you hostage as these two characters find their way to each other."
4 stars to Hijacked
"I think this author has changed my stance on short stories because if they were all like this series, I’d read them all the time!"

Book Freak says:
The First Night: "Theirs was a rollercoaster ride fueled by a pent-up longing and intense desire. It might be short, but these two would have you a little bit crazed – wondering if they’ll ever get around and finally admit that they’re perfect for each other. The First Night – it was short, sizzling, sexy and uber-hot."
Hijacked: "Just like the first book – this was oozing with sexiness, heat and a lot of heart. I love that this was a short read, and you can just finished this in one sitting. You will squirm, blush and feel the heat with every page."

Words of Wisdom from The Scarf Princess says:
The First Night: "This was an entertaining start to a sexy series of short reads that are a decadent delight and have me looking forward to more."
Hijacked: "…I'm left looking forward to the next installment in this sexy contemporary series."

Romance Bookworm says:
The First Night: "This was a beautiful reconnect story. I found it heartwarming."
Hijacked: "Sometimes you just know that the person you are looking at is the love of a lifetime. I always say that there are ‘forever’ guys out there. When you find one you hold on to him forever. I married mine and Sharon found hers when she least expected it."

Crazy Four Books says: "I thoroughly enjoyed them both and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."

Romancing the Readers says: "These are both great books, and a wonderful start to a series and I look forward to what the author has next."
