Flawlessly written and breath taking!  - GR Review, Stacie

This is one of the best royal books I have read!GR Review, Jennifer

👑⭐👑 BAD REPUTATION is LIVE 👑⭐👑

Being bad never felt so good.

I fell for Ally the moment I saw her. Who doesn’t like a confident, intelligent woman with curves I could spend days exploring?

Who am I kidding?

I have.

Many times.

Our story ended abruptly when she packed her bags and left like we weren’t meant to be. We are. So I’m calling her bluff. That’s how I ended up thousands of miles from home, standing next to a man who claims to be her fiancé.

Being good has never felt so bad.

When it comes to a successful man with an incredible body and biteable jaw aka Hutton . . . let’s just say willpower is not my strong suit.

Need more?

Try bad-boy American.

You’re welcome.

Embracing my newfound good girl status, I do the right thing to start my reign. My desires no longer matter. The monarchy, the people, and my country do. There is no place for love in this new life.

But I never expected to see him again, much less standing next to my royally appointed soon-to-be fiancé. 

As if that didn’t complicate things, he’s wearing a perfectly tailored tuxedo and my favorite smirk. I straighten my crown and adjust my dress, realizing this good girl never stood a chance. I’ll take the bad reputation if I get him.

This SECOND CHANCE ROYAL STANDALONE Romance by New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, will have you feeling like the Queen of your own fairy tale. One-click this new romance and fall in love while reading.

SURPRISE! I have a new book coming out on October 26th. Until I Met You is an emotional journey and these characters spoke to my soul. I love Hazel (Taylor) and Jude (Judith) so much. I hope you give this standalone a try.

 

~ Until I Met You ~

Their love burned bright, white hot, and strikingly blue around the edges.

Some thought them careless.

Some thought them crazy.

No one approved.

Taylor Barrett was looking for answers in a universe that had abandoned him.

Jude Boehler flooded her dark world with charisma and mystery, drawing everyone into her hurricane.

It was a most captivating of love affairs.

They were shooting stars, meteors in the sky, colliding to create a spectacularly wonderful reckless romance, leaving them breathless and tethered.

Their souls were exposed to the chaos, bare and vulnerable. Can these two star-crossed lovers survive the madness that is life?

And just for fun, here's an EXCERPT:

Entering his building made her feet lighter. She was being carried on the wings of euphoria, each step easier than the last. She wasn’t walking to her future. She was running toward it. Taking a breath, she held it, and knocked on his door.

The door opened and he stood there with his lips parted and confusion furrowing his brow. “Jude?”

Throwing herself forward, she jumped up and wrapped her body around his and kissed him. Then again. He kicked the door closed and held her against it. When they parted, they remained close enough to share their panting breaths. He said, “You’re here.” When he pressed his abs against her center her head knocked hard on the wood and he kissed the exposed skin of her neck where it met her shoulder.

He was strong. He was virile. “Hey,” she said, bringing his face up to see hers.

Lowering her down until her feet touched, he said, “I thought we were meeting at the park?”

“I couldn’t wait.”

His glorious smile chose to shine on her. “I’m glad you didn’t. Do you want to go to the bedroom?”

Giggling, she replied, “Yes, so much, but I need to talk to you first.”

“Okay.” He walked to the couch and she stared gob-smacked by his allure. Jeans that hung low. No shirt. Boxers peeking out the top, but a V that directed her eyes below the waistband. He was a tease as he stood there waiting for her to join him. Sitting on the couch, he patted it. “C’mere.”

She started walking on shaky legs. As she passed the bar, she debated if she should stay there to save her clarity. That seat next to him was tempting, but she knew she’d be flat on her back within seconds. So she hurried to his side and sat down. His hands were instantly on her.

Can't wait to share their story with you.

Sneaky Peek - Next Book - Secret Project

So even though I can't give any details like name, release date, cover, synopsis - all the things that make up a book, I decided I was going to share a sneaky peek inside. WOOT! Here ya go: ©S. L. Scott 2015

“What do you do for money?”

“My profession?” He watched the peculiar girl twirl away from him. Her skirt ballooned out, brushing against his gray wool covered legs.

But she stopped and replied, “No, just in the general sense.”

One of his eyes squinted, completely confused by the nonsensical question. “I’m an architect.”

She seemed to agree. “That makes sense.” She left this time while he watched her go, but she didn’t walk. She floated. She danced her way in red snow boots through the stiff crowd dressed in suits and evening attire. The girl wearing a chartreuse sundress with little pink flowers embroidered around the bottom in the middle of winter stood out at this party and completely captivated him.

There were plenty of people he knew and some he should talk to, but he didn’t move from where he was standing. He waited for her, confused to as why, but he did.

She returned as if they were lasting friends, as if she had no doubt he would still be there, waiting.

The young architect and the girl in the sundress stood next to each other in silence. The brownie had been eaten, and a cocktail now replaced it in her hand, which she waved flagrantly to the music not noticing—or not caring—that the liquid was spilling as she moved.

Finally speaking up, he asked, “How many drinks have you had tonight?” But he really wanted to ask if she was drunk. He had never seen someone so careless before, so carefree before. She twirled again, and he swiftly took the glass from her and set it down on the table. For the safety of the drink, of course.

“This is my first.”

.....

Hope you enjoyed. Coming Soon with more details too. hehe

It's the continuation of Dalton and Holliday's journey after The Resistance.

Synopsis:

Jack Dalton was charismatic.

Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

“This isn’t how our melody goes. This isn’t how we were supposed to play out.”

Valentine's Day - A Redemption Excerpt

Vday 5 Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Here's a bonus scene I recently wrote and wanted to share with you. Check out the note at the end of this post.

Valentine’s – The Redemption by S. L. Scott

~Rochelle~

I miss him. It’s only been two days, but I miss Dex so much. I never considered myself to be overly-dramatic, but Valentine’s Day has broken my resolve. Stupid heart-shaped candy boxes. I bought two… for myself this morning and as I look at them open on the bed in front of me, wrappers spewed everywhere, I sigh. I’m weak, damn it! To chocolate… and that man. Grabbing my phone, I touch the button and call him. Listening to the rings—One. Two. Three. Four. Voicemail. Ugh! I hang up though all I want to do is gush to him about how much I love him and pout about how much I miss him. I lay in bed bemoaning my loneliness and feeling totally sorry for myself when I realize if I’m feeling like this, maybe he is too. I immediately text Beth to see if she can spend the night and watch the boys. While I’m waiting for a response, I look up flights to Denver. The band is playing a show there tonight. Beth: My plans fell through, so I’m free, and happy to take my mind off my lack of a love life. I can pick the boys up from school too. We’ll make heart-shaped pizzas and eat lots of candy. Me: LOL. They’ll love you more than they already do. Limit the candy though. It’s a school night. I have Valentine’s gifts for them set up in their rooms as a surprise. I owe you big time for doing this. Thank you. My flight takes off at five and I’m landing in Denver before nine their time. The band should be taking the stage just about now. I wish I could make it to the concert because I still get chills when Dex launches the show with that first drumbeat. An hour later, I’m in Dex’s suite. Tommy was more than happy to arrange to leave a key at the front desk because he says Dex is a moody bastard when I’m not around. I’ve got one short night to make the most of our reunion. Standing there, it doesn’t smell like him. He hasn’t spent time here. In a way I’m disappointed there doesn’t seem to be any part of him here, but I’m also glad that a hotel room has not become his home. He belongs with me and the boys back in LA. Dex’s suitcase is open on the floor and it makes me realize I should have brought some clean clothes for him. On the desk in the corner, I spy a notepad and go and sit down. I write:

To the Man that Makes My Heart Race,

Though some days we aren’t together, you’re never alone. You’ll always be with me—even if timezones and cities separate us, I’m with you and you’re with me, in our hearts we will be.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love you always, The Woman Who Can’t Live Without You XOX

I tuck the note into his case, under a T-shirt, feeling so happy I came here. When I stand up, I smile, excited to start our night. I grab the lingerie out of my case and lay it out on the bed, and then hurry into the bathroom to shower off the day from traveling. After getting cleaned up, I spend some time applying my makeup much heavier than usual and styling my hair to be as much of a sex kitten as I can. I want to blow Dex’s mind when he sees me. No yoga pants or jeans for me tonight. After ordering champagne, beer, and a decadent dessert from room service, I glance at the time. Twenty minutes until the concert will be over and Tommy promised to deliver Dex right afterwards. Room Service comes and I usher him out as quickly as I can. As soon as the door shuts, I drop the robe and slip on the black lace one piece. It’s high on the hips and low in the cleavage, but it’s flattering and makes me feel sexy. I pop open the champagne and fill two glasses. The anticipation of seeing him again, surprising him on this sweetest of days, has me feeling giddy inside. I start to hurry to make sure everything is in order and how I want it before slipping on totally inappropriate, but too hot to pass up fuck-me heels. I know he’ll love them. I move to the bed and start positioning myself, but I roll my eyes, kind of starting to feel ridiculous in this unnaturally pose. But then I hear the key in the card reader of the door and freeze. I’m as still as I can be, my heart in my throat, as I watch the entranceway. I suck in a staggered breath, then hold it along with my sexy pose.The door slams closed and I hear him sigh as if relieved to be back. Right when he turns the corner, he stops in his tracks… or the surprise of me stops him in his tracks. Surprise morphs instantly as his gaze slides over my body. Dex leans against the wall with his hotel key still in hand and the smile that I traveled a thousand miles to see slides across his face. “What a coincidence meeting you here.” It’s so good to see him, so good that all I want to do is run to him, jump on him and kiss him until we fall onto the bed for more. But I hold the pin-up girl pose a moment longer, hoping to tempt him to me. “It’s not a coincidence at all,” I say, holding the eye contact. He tosses the key on the dresser and comes over. Dropping his jacket to the ground, he crawls up the bed until I’m forced to lay flat on my back. He’s above me, looking down and says, “This is the best Valentine’s present I’ve ever gotten.” I stretch my arms above my head, wigging and wanting his hands all over me, and say, “I was lonely and today is made for lovers, so love on me, big boy.” “Oh, Sweetheart, I’ll love on you alright.” Our lips meet and my body relents under his touch. As his finger rocks back and forth under my strap, he adds, “You’re so fucking sexy, but I want this off.” Shifting, I lift up onto my knees and say, “Then take it off.” The action is slow, and though I know he would love to look down and enjoy the show, he holds our gaze instead. The gesture is intimate and defining, the love he has for me shining through. His hand cups my breast when it’s exposed, then the other. As we come together, our fervor elevates, our movements pick up, a frenzy building between us. Within minutes, my love is inside me, his breath covering my bare chest as our bodies rock together. The room is heated by our passion and we become slick with shared emotions until we lose control in each other’s arms while still connected. We fall into a heap, but turn to look into other’s eyes. He whispers, “You’re here.” I can hear the affection in his words. “I miss the way you look at me and your scent. I miss your tattoos and running my fingers over your biceps, your laugh and your smile. I miss all of you, Dex. All of you and I just don’t like missing my heart.” His hand touches my cheek, his fingers rough and wonderful just like I remember. “I miss my heart too. It’s never easy leaving you, but seeing you makes me forget all that. Seeing you completes me.” He shakes his head while closing his eyes. “I hate that I just said that. Such a bad fucking line.” “Dex,” I say, trying to pry his hands away from covering his face. “No. It’s out there. It’s horrifying and out there forever. God, you’ll never look at me the same now.” “You’re right. I’ll look at you entirely different from this moment on.” He lowers his hands and looks my way, and I continue, “You’re the man who opened his heart to me and showed me how deeply one person can love. You taught me love has no boundaries, nor limits, just the capacity for openness.” “Now you’re just trying to humor me,” he says, chuckling. “If it takes away you being embarrassed over something that made my heart melt, then I’ll humor you.” He slides his arm around my neck and brings me closer, kissing me on the forehead in the meantime. “Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweetheart.” “Happy Valentine’s Day.” With our heads bumped together on the same pillow, he asks, “How long can you stay?” “You’ve got me for seven more hours.” Maneuvering on top of me, he spreads my legs and rests his body on mine. With his face just inches away and his eyes on my lips, he says, “Let’s not waste a minute.” Sitting on my bed back home the next day, I open the large heart-shaped box of candy that was delivered this morning before I arrived home. But there’s not chocolate in this box. I find three boxes inside instead. I take the first one out and lift the lid. There’s a necklace with a heart-shaped diamond too large to be forgiven. He’s going to be punished so good for spending this much on such a commercial holiday. But I love it just like I love him and can’t stop smiling as I put it around my neck. The note reads—You have my Heart. I look down and hold the pendant, admiring it, then kiss it before reaching for the second box. When I lift the lid, I see a silver charm bracelet with a miniature drum dangling from it. I fasten it around my wrist before reading the note that came with it. You have my Soul. Tapping the drum and watching it swing, my heart swoons from his thoughtfulness. I reach for the third box and lift the lid, knowing it’s going to be hard to top the amazing gifts he’s given me so far. He manages to do just that though. When I lift the lid, I see a note, only a note. I unfold it and tears flood the corners of my eyes. Dex voices the words as my eyes read them, “You have all of me.” I look up and see him standing there. “You’re not the only one who can surprise someone, ya know.” With a huge smile on my face, I jump up and run to him. Landing against his chest, he’s pushed back from the impact as his hands go under me to hold me to him. I let my tears of happiness dry, then look at him. He holds up a little package of Ferraro-Rochers and smirks. It’s arrogant in all corners and oh so sexy. I repeat my thought from the day before. “I’m weak, damn it! To chocolate and most definitely to you. How much time do we have?” I snatch the chocolates and kiss him hard. “Forever.” “I love the sound of that.”

The End.

A Few of My Favorite Things 2014

Every year I get asked what I want for Christmas. Most years, I struggle to find stuff for a list. Over time I've started to embrace the thought that holiday gifts and birthday gifts should be things you really want, not necessarily stuff you need. When was the last time you got excited after opening a pair of cooking tongs? When was the last time you got excited after opening earrings? For me, I'm much more excited about the earrings. So if you're looking for something new, fun, and/or great product to add to your list, for the second year, I've put together a list of items I LOVE. They are tested, tried, and true. They make me happy when I use them and I would put these items on my own list if I need a new one.

In no particular order:

1. Michael Kors Roller Ball Perfume and Lipgloss - I love Michael Kors perfumes and have for years. But these are fantastic. I own both the regular Michael Kors eau de parfum and the Very Hollywood rollerball. There are more scents with complementing lipgloss. One end is the perfume and the other is a lipgloss. I love carrying these on trips because they save space in my toiletries bag and I take these out with me at night because of the 2 for 1 of having perfume and lipgloss in one.  $25 retail

Michael Kors 1

 

 

 

 

2. PopSugar Box. You guys have seen me talk about this and squeal in excitement online. My husband bought this gift for me last Christmas and every month is like a birthday when I receive this box. I've gotten to not only try really high-end, quality beauty products, but gotten hardback books/cookbooks, scarves, hair accessories, and my latest obsession - a new crossbody sapphire blue purse. I used it the night I got it last week. The food is mostly good, but overall, I love this box. When it's good, it's REALLY good. There is usually a $10 off coupon online you can find to use on your first box too, so look for that before ordering. $39.95 retail per month Order Here

Popsugar box 1

 

 

 

 

3. Coffee Giftcards - Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf or Starbucks. I have both near me. I prefer Coffee Bean, but love the seasonal flavors at Starbucks. I like getting giftcards for these places because it feels like a treat. These also make great stock stuffers for my family. You can spend as little or as much as you want when loading these.

Giftcards 1

 

 

 

 

4. Kindle Paperwhite. I love this ereader. I love that it's backlit and easy to use as well as has so many options on it. Why I choose the Paperwhite after extensive and months long research is that it's not a tablet and I can't check social networks. lol Sounds strange but I'm on my laptop for an average of 12 hours a day or more. When I'm reading, I want to read and not be tempted to check or play online. haha Sold on Amazon HERE

Paperwhite 1

 

 

 

 

5. Kendra Scott Earrings and Necklaces. This Austin jewelry designer has expanded across the U.S. this past year and I love her earrings and necklaces. Our Austin Crew got together for my birthday at one of her stores for Ladies night which included wine, cupcakes, and discounts. I have 3 pairs of earrings - black, slate, and the iridescent. And I wear my earrings all the time now. It was so much fun. During your birthday month, you also receive 50% off of one item. They run weekly specials online and get some bonus discounts. I'm sure they will be having a Black Friday sale, so check their site for details. Average prices $55 - 150 retail. Shop Here

Kendra Scott 1

 

 

 

 

6. Books, E-Books, Amazon Giftcards. These are a MUST for the book lover in your life or yourself. I love getting Amazon giftcards because I can treat myself to whatever I want to read or some item I've been wanting. They come in any amount. Buy Here

I hope you're inspired to splurge on your holiday list this year and that you're pampered in glamour and spoiled in the best of ways.
