Blurb for Caught up in Capricorn by Sadira Stone

When a confident, control-freak Capricorn is forced to partner with a prickly, seductive Scorpio, their business and their hearts will never be the same.

Owner Ryan Lee keeps a sharp eye on every detail of Salty Dog Brewery. His brewer’s sudden departure leaves just one replacement, Lilo Eisinger, the brewer’s stunning, sharp-tongued daughter. Though smart and talented, Lilo’s weird, niche beers are the last thing Salty Dog needs. Ryan burns for her, but he must protect his business.

Master brewer Lilo reluctantly puts her plans on hold to help Ryan, the smug, handsome jerk she’s loathed since middle school. But Ryan’s been good to her dad, and maybe she can turn this obstacle into a medal-winning opportunity for both of them, if only she can pry his grip loose from their beer menu.

Working side by side lowers their defenses and ignites long-simmering desire. But a high-stakes craft beer contest triggers their fierce competitive nature. Can their budding love survive this battle of wills?


Lilo leaned back in her chair and crossed her arms. “You’re pretty transparent with your phony smile and your bedroom eyes. You and I are stuck together professionally. Let’s make the best of it and not muddy the waters with flirtation.”

There’s that Scorpio sting Gemma warned me about.”

Gemma warned you about me?” Judging by Lilo’s sour expression, Gemma was due for a talking to.

She and Jesse stopped by yesterday. She says Scorpios are like coconuts. Hard, scratchy exterior, soft and juicy interior. According to her, Capricorn and Scorpio have a lot in common. She says, with my practicality and your intuition, we’d make a great team.”

Lilo’s eyes narrowed. “Just what kind of team do you have in mind?”

I’m talking about work, of course. Although—” He stroked his chin, weighing his chances. “I wouldn’t object to getting to know you better. You know, on a personal level.”

Her eyebrows rose, then scrunched. She licked her lips, then clamped them tight. What the hell was going on in that hard head of hers?

Finally, she set down her fork and folded her hands on the table. “I’m gonna be straight with you, Ryan. I’m attracted to you.”

Yesss! “Is that so?”

But I’m not the casual hookup type. I have to at least like a guy before getting intimate. And I’m not sure I like you.”

His jaw fell. “What the hell did I do?”

She gave a slow, feline blink. “Besides being a schmoozer who doesn’t have faith in my skills as a brewer?”

I never said—"

Your actions say otherwise, always watching me to make sure I don’t screw up.”

Did it ever occur to you I just like looking at you?”

Blurb for Tangled in Taurus by Sadira Stone

Headstrong, homebody Taurus plus passionate, freedom-loving Aquarius equals the worst match ever, but their blazing chemistry is unstoppable.

Jesse Del Toro struggles to keep his organic farm afloat, hard enough without the delicious, dangerous distraction of Gemma Moore’s return to Trappers Cove. The bewitching vagabond will never settle down in their quirky beach town. But once ignited, their fiery attraction sets them on a collision course that could wreck him.

Shaken by a breakup, Gemma flees to the soothing serenity of Trappers Cove. Helping in Aunt Zora’s metaphysical shop will calm her stormy emotions. But from the moment Jesse walks in, calm is a lost cause. The hunky herb farmer is frustrating, stubborn, and oh so tempting. One hot night reveals his hidden side—sweet, sensual, and determined to make her his.

When a harmless secret backfires, Gemma discovers just how deeply she’s wounded the beautiful bull man, and how desperately she wants to keep him.


He bit his lip, a distractingly sexy gesture. “I’ve been reading up on Aquarius people. You don’t really like talking about your feelings, and—”

Hold up. Mr. I-Don’t-Believe-In-Woo-Woo-Stuff has been reading up on astrology?”

He shrugged. “You believe in it, and so does Zora, so I figured it couldn’t hurt to learn more about where you’re coming from.”

Gemma didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “I can’t believe it. I’ve been sitting here alone, worrying that you’ve lost interest, and you’ve been doing research? Can’t we just cut to the chase?”

With a low laugh, Jesse glanced over his shoulder, then placed his lips a hair’s breadth from her ear. “Get naked, you mean? Is that what you want, Gemma?”

She hooked her fingers into his hip pockets and tugged him against her. “Yes, please. Ever since that night by the fire, I can’t stop thinking about your touch, your voice, your…”

Gemma.” He took her chin between his thumb and forefinger, his expression serious. “You’re vulnerable right now. I didn’t want to take advantage. If you want to be with me, you need to understand I’m not a casual hookup kind of guy. I have feelings for you, which is kind of scary, considering you’re all set to bolt from Trappers Cove as soon as Zora is well.”

Gemma sighed. “I haven’t decided what I’ll do when she’s well.”

That admission was all it took to rekindle his smile. “Look, I’m not proposing. I’m not asking you to move in. But before I do all the things I want to do to you, I need to know I’m more than just a way to pass the time until you leave.” His fingers skimmed down her throat, then over her collar bones—and just like that, she discovered her new favorite erogenous zone.

What do you say, Gemma? You ready to take a leap of faith?” He pressed a kiss to her temple and murmured, “Because when you’re ready, I’ll love you with my hands, my tongue, my cock. I’ll fuck you so good you won’t want to leave me.”

Dizzy, she clutched his shirt to keep from tumbling to the floor.

He nibbled her earlobe, his breath hot against her skin. “You’re not there yet, Gemma. And I won’t give you what we both want until you let your guard down.” His hand slid down to squeeze her hip. “What do you say, Gemma? Are you ready to be real with me?”
