Royal Affair, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is available now!!!

A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.
Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?
As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.

Princess Charlotte is the sensible, responsible Sinclair sibling.  As the “spare” twin, she’s used to be out of the spotlight and on the shadow of the future queen, her sister Imogen and as the youngest girl, her oldest brothers and sister always make decisions around her.
When Brooks Walker crashes her brother’s charity ball and they meet, she can’t stop herself from flirting with the man she stalks on social media, the same one who exposed her family’s exile.  She knows he’s dangerous and not suitable for her, but desperate to feel some semblance of freedom, she’ll start an affair that could end in disaster for her as well as her family.
This second installment of the series is as good, if not better than the first one.  Charlotte and Brooks make a great couple and their story is super sexy and romantic.  While she’s permanently conflicted by her duty to her family, he’s hell bent on her living and fulfilling her own wishes.
The book is very nicely written, fast paced and still bears more secrets pertaining to the Sinclairs.  I keep wondering what else can this family have in store!
I was totally engaged by it and it was definitely a fast developed and fun read.  Romance with a punch!

Excerpt:

“I see.” He kisses me again, tenderly. Sweetly. It’s so confusing that I turn my face away from his. “What do you see?” “That you’ve been neglected more than I thought.” “I don’t want your pity.” He nuzzles the side of my neck, his mouth going lower and lower. “The last thing I feel for you is pity. Show me how you feel, Princess. Take my cock and put it where you want it the most—your hands, your pussy, your mouth … your ass.” “You are so naughty,” I gasp, and he laughs. “I came prepared for that, too,” he says in a low voice. “Up to you, though. Everything we do tonight is up to you.” “Then I want to do this.” Guiding the head of his cock into me, I pause and say, “You’re very big.” “All the better to fuck you with,” he says, but for some reason, he pulls out. “A real cock is a million times better than a magic wand.” He winks at me, and I want to sink into the mattress. Leaning over, he grabs something above my head before looking at me again. “What?” I scowl harder at him, even though I’m very pleased he remembered protection when I didn’t. Gosh, Charlotte, could you be any more idiotic? “Don’t quote fairy tales to me.” He drops his head beside my ear and whispers, “You love fairy tales, sweetheart.” “But you did some creative talking and added a vibrator to it!” “I can always go home.” After tearing open the package, he rolls the condom down his hard length. He strokes himself, his big hand wrapped around his large cock. My core pulses and throbs in anticipation. Mesmerized, I lick my lips. “No.” RoyalAffair-AN

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…
