Title: Tell Them Lies
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2015

Liz Peters hasn’t exactly gotten the happily-ever-after she’s read about in her Jane Austen books. ‘Always a bridesmaid’ is more fitting to the way life has been passing this good girl by. About to go postal from loneliness, she meets a man who doesn’t seem to fit any of her requirements for a book-worthy hero.
Kieran Carter would do just about anything to put a smile on his terminally ill mother’s face. When he meets a woman in the ice cream aisle at the grocery store, Kieran finally has opportunity to do just that. If he needs to lie in order to give his mom a little hope? Not a freakin problem.

It all seems so neat and tidy. An arrangement is struck that benefits them both, but when lines get blurry and the guilt of lying to everyone they love becomes too much, neither Liz or Kieran can tell what’s real and what’s for show. And somewhere in the middle is the last person they ever expected to fall in love with.

"Besides," she continued, completely oblivious to him doing a running checklist of how much he sucked, "it's not like you're busy with a girl, are you?"

Good Lord. He wanted to dig that spoon into his eye so that he didn't need to see that hopeful, searching look in her eye. For years, she'd been dropping hints about grandchildren for shits sake. He hadn't even had a girlfriend, not a real one, for five years. Just, you know, scratching the itch when necessary. And here she was, slowly withering away in front of him, wanting something, anything for him so badly. 

"I am," he said before he could think twice about it.

"Really?" Oh God, forgive him. She looked so happy. 

"Uh huh. I, uh, didn't want to say anything until I knew she was on the same page as me."

And yeah, Blondie from the grocery store had not been on the same page as him. Not the same page, or the same book. Probably not the same bookstore even. And as soon as he'd blurted out those two words that would condemn him to lying to his dear, beloved, sick with cancer mother, it was her face that he saw. Those pale blue eyes that had damn near stabbed into his brain. 

"Oh, honey. Where you did you two meet?"

The eyes that had been clouded with exhaustion about five minutes earlier were bright. Fricken' sparkling. Like diamonds or sapphires or some shit.  

"The grocery store. She, uhh, she was standing in front of the ice cream, kinda spaced out, you know? And we just got to talking."

Lie. Lie, lie, liar, liar, pants on fire. He was going to hell. For sure. He just bought his VIP ticket.

"What's she like?"

It would have been manly to keep a stoic face and list some random generic traits. But instead, he smiled like a dumbass and just started rambling. 

"Beautiful. Like, angel-level beautiful. I wasn't even sure she was real when I first saw her standing there. But she's, uhh, she's smart. It was obvious right away. And she gave me shit within like five minutes of meeting her. Which made me act like an ever bigger ass than I normally would."

She chuckled. She chuckled and Kieran felt his heart damn near skip. It was one of the best sounds he'd heard in a while.
About The Author 
Well, let's see. I'm a wife and a mother. I'm a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I'm almost exclusively a romance reader, which means I will never truly be considered a literary snob. I think that if I could meet one historical figure, it would probably be Jane Austen. I majored in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. And I hate twitter. I do it, but I hate it.

Madison Collins

Self Published

A standalone taboo romance. No cliffhanger. 18+

On the way to our parents wedding in the mountains, the mother of all snow storms attacks, leaving me stranded in a remote cabin with my new stepbrother. 

My hot as hell, I-need-to-change-my-panties because-they’re-soaked, cocky asshole of a stepbrother, Bentley McAllister.

The kicker of it all?

The only items he's packed are liquor and condoms, and he’s looking at me like he wants to put both to good use.

My name is Sierra, and my libido can only take so much.

Send help!




“Listen, princess.” I lift her chin toward mine, meeting this gorgeous big blue eyes.  “I’m not sure if you noticed, but we’re stranded together in the middle of fucking nowhere, with only each other to count on.  You can fight me all you want, but there’s one thing you need to understand.  I’m going to protect you.  I’m going to take care of you.  And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m six-foot-four, and probably have a hundred pounds on you.  My body is going to produce a lot more heat than yours.  Now calm the fuck down, and let me get you warm.  Got it, sweetheart?”  Her fighting stops immediately.
She nods, coyly, blinking those baby blues at me, all of her fight disappearing.  “Got it.” Her voice is small, and I suddenly feel like a dick.
“Good. Glad we’re on the same page.” I tug her body closer so we’re pressed tightly together, and I hold her to my chest, wrapping her in my arms. A contented little sigh escapes her lips. The top of her head doesn’t even reach my chin. She packs a lot of sass for such a small thing.  I inhale, and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. The smell of vanilla and lavender fill my nose.  Damn, who knew that combination could be so perfect?  It’s intoxicating and I can feel my body slowly start to react to the smell and the images my mind starts to produce.  The way her slight curves mold to my body serves to warm me up pretty damn quick.

When I moved to New York, I never
dreamed that I would end up as a Top Twelve finalist for America's Favorite
Dancer. I knew the competition would be a great opportunity for my career, but
I had no idea it would turn out to be the best summer of my life. My golden
ticket onto the show led to new friendships and hot steamy romances. 

However, behind the cool, confidence that I showed the world was a broken heart
that had never completely healed. Dance was my ongoing therapy, and I vowed to
never let a man get close enough to hurt me ever again. 

Instead, I kept my relationships the same way I liked to dance....fast and
unbinding. Was I a heartbreaker? Maybe. But mostly just protecting my own

Now, if I could only forget the love of my life, I would be okay, but until
then I would continue to Just Dance. 
Just Dance is a companion novella in the Dancer's Desire series, which can be
read alone, but is better as Book 2.5 in the series. It is a short story with a
little bit of romance and a whole lot of fun.
