Find Mr. Right in 30 days? Challenge accepted.

But when Rose discovers she must marry before her twenty-first birthday to claim the money, she has no choice but to push herself out into the world in search of a man she can love and trust. Unfortunately, those are the very things that have been used as weapons against her.

With only a month to go, can she find true love? Or will her past hold her back, leaving her penniless and alone?

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes The Boyfriend Collector Book 2.

My name is Dr. Bex Hughes, and like many men, I am in love with Rose Marie Hale. Her fire and beauty leave us speechless and dropping to her feet wherever she goes. Truly, she is the perfect woman in every way. Except one.

Rose was once a real-life Cinderella, but now she’s wealthy, single, and free. Only, she’s not. Free, that is. Rose is convinced that love is used to hurt people, family tries to murder you for money, and no one can be trusted. It’s all she’s ever known.

I can help Rose find her way to real happiness, but to do it, I am bending every rule I’ve ever lived by and seeing her as my patient. A taboo in the eyes of the world. A professional sin in mine.

The question is, how much longer can I stand listening to the details of Rose’s romances with other men? My jealously is getting the best of me, and I can’t afford to lose our fragile connection.

EXCERPT

He walked closer to the slide, waving to Jason, who sat at the top. Jason waved back, but then his focus seemed to shift and he hesitated for a couple of seconds at the top. When he let go of the handholds and slid to the bottom, he ran toward Mike, but then passed him. Mike spun around and saw a golden retriever straining on the end of a long leash. He smiled to himself. He got it. That dog was much more interesting than Dad.

His gaze followed Jason coming to an abrupt stop a few feet from the dog. He glanced at the woman holding the leash who was coming through the bridge and smiling at Jason. His stomach flipped as he froze in place.

Ruby. Ruby was on the other end of the leash. She leaned over to pat the dog’s side. Red-haired, brown-eyed, smiling Ruby.

Mike’s jaw slackened as the present moment gave way to flashes from the past. Seventeen-year-old Ruby running through the bridge and leaping into his arms, a college acceptance letter in her hand. Ruby in a purple dress lacing her fingers around his neck as they danced under the dim lights at their prom. A vision of them skipping stones at the riverbank flashed and morphed into the two of them in sweatshirts and jeans rowing under a full moon on a warm fall night.

He stared at Ruby, who stood twenty, maybe thirty feet away. Then she looked away from the dog and Jason, and saw him. Motionless, expressionless, she stared back across the patchy grass. Barely able to breathe, he forced himself to close the distance between them.

“Ruby…I’m, I don’t seem to…”

“I know,” she said in a faint voice. “What are you doing here?”

“I, uh, moved back.” He pointed to the ground. “I live here now.”

Ruby opened her mouth as if to speak, but no words came out. Instead, he heard a choking sob come from deep in her throat and her mouth disappeared behind her hand.

Excerpt from Loved by the Beast (Alcyran Chronicles #3) by Anya Summers w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @anyabsummers #PNR #paranormalromance

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Anya Summers will be awarding a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Anna has plans for her life. This fall, she will be heading off to medical school, well on her way to becoming a doctor. But first, she and her besties head to Ireland to celebrate.

Nowhere did her future plans even include serious dating, let alone becoming mated to a man who can turn into a freaking beast with wings. Nor did she reckon with being sucked through a portal onto another planet while on her way home from a great night out.

Yet from the very first time her new mate touches her, Anna wonders if this could be the real deal – as in: the big L. The only problem is, her mate says his kind do not love; they protect, they pleasure, and they provide. Can Anna really kiss goodbye to all her plans for the future, and agree to spend the rest of her existence without love?

Publisher’s Note: This steamy paranormal romance, while the third in the Alcyran Chronicles series, can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

Read an Excerpt

D’Vorak launched himself off the rooftop, took to the air, and sniffed the wind. He soared like a ghostly specter, blending in with the night. On the streets below, the people never glanced up as he glided above. Perhaps that was why they didn’t know their world was dying. They were too involved with what was right in front of them to view the larger picture.

Working with Rhiannon was risky. He understood the perils of trusting the Clovis wench. However, she had promised that if he succeeded in this task, she would sever his people’s ties with the Clovis. That must happen before the truth of the Gūla was discovered—the truth they had kept hidden, the weapons they had forged.

All he had to do was find the three women and take them to his planet. Three particular women whom Rhiannon indicated were descended from the original line of Clovis. Earth had been the home world for the Clovis before they discovered the wormhole to Destruna, another realm, another world where they weren’t persecuted and fled this one. The ancient lore of the Gūla described the first arrival of the Clovis on Destruna. At that time, the tribes had been primitive, living in thatch huts. It was the Clovis who taught them to build, to write, to read.

It was during that time, the true wealth of the Gūla was discovered. Warlords seized the mines filled with lunar crystals. When put together, they glowed, and were a power source unlike anything else on Destruna.

And from that power source they had created weapons capable of bringing down a Dráo, and protecting their realm. But the weapons created were too potent if they fell into the wrong hands. He shuddered at the thought of the Clovis with them. Queen Mona was already a power hungry wench with immense resources; she didn’t need more at her disposal.

His nose caught a whiff of sweetness on the breeze. The potency and flavor reminded him of dragonsbane wine. Being surrounded by the foreign stench, his beast wanted to roll around in the familiar scent.

Dang, this book is hot.  Seriously.  But just understand that it needs to be for Anna and D’Vorak to work its important.  I know, normally I don’t read the really hot stuff that much anymore but Ms. Summers is fast becoming a go-to author for me when I want it hot, emotional and having a wonderful, but hard-fought HEA.  Did I mention this book is hot?  It has BDSM elements in it so be forewarned.  I enjoyed getting to know Anna and D’Vorak.

No one writes a true Alpha hero like Ms. Summers.  At least for me.  There were times that I really wanted to hit him for his heavy-handedness with Anna but at the same time, it worked for me.  Anna was no slouch in the giving department but again, Ms. Summers can have D’Vorak do something that was really sweet and it redeemed it for me.  I also liked that D’Vorak was a gargoyle-like creature.  I love that creature in paranormal and not too many authors try to tackle it in their writing.  Plus, the dragons in this one are not nice.  Did I also mention that there are witches, spells, and an alien aspect to the book, too?  This book had a lot going on but it kept my interest from the beginning page and I didn’t want it to end.

Anna has no clue what is happening when she is pulled into the portal but I liked her spunk to her situation.  She did not want to fall in love with D’Vorak at all.  This is NOT a love at first sight.  These two had a lot to work out between them, even if the sex is hot.  Anna has forgiveness in heart, willing to compromise and refuses to settle.  She won’t hand over her friends to anyone.  At times, I really thought that it wouldn’t work out between them but Ms. Summers knows just how much to torture her readers and then pulls them back in.  Did I mention that I love Ms. Summers writing?

The book is full of wonderful world-building, an exciting plot, and breathtaking pacing.  It is full of adventure, thrills and fascinating characters.  I didn’t read the first two books in the series and I was never lost.  Ms. Summers does a great job of letting the reader know what is going on.  There were still a few things that I didn’t quite feel where finished so I hope that there is another book in the series.

Again, I really, really loved this book and Ms. Summers.  You will, too, if you give it a chance.
