Free Reads

Glad you could join us on our first free reads post. I'm thinking this may be a regular thing if it comes across to readers well. So if you enjoy this post be sure and leave a comment. And now to the fun part. I also wanted to thank all the authors that participated.

The Ultimate Merger
Two workaholics slow down long enough to find love when they least expect it.

Renaldo da Silva is on the verge of entering the U.S. market with the purchase of a hotel in downtown Chicago. After working hard for several days straight, he heads to a local bar and sees a woman who instantly makes him reconsider how to spend his evening.

When another one of her male counterparts unfairly becomes the lead on a project, Sabrina Porter leaves work intent on drowning her sorrows in wine and loud music at a local bar. Instead, she meets a sexy Brazilian who’s intent on showing her a different way to unwind.

The Ultimate Merger is a short story. It's the prequel to Second Chances, Book 4 of the Hot Latin Men series.

Beauty Touched The Beast
Erin cleans Mr. Morris’s house twice a week, soaking up every moment with the reclusive ex-soldier she secretly loves. Blake Morris knows he’s scarred both inside and out and is no good for the beautiful young woman who cleans his house to pay for college. But when Erin walks in on Blake touching himself and moaning her name, all bets are off.

Beauty Touched the Beast is a 6K short erotic story of lovers finding refuge with each other. Not for those under 18 years of age or those uncomfortable with the subject matter.

"Sweet, touching and erotic, Beauty Touched the Beast was wonderful.” - Sizzling Hot Book Reviews

"I love a scarred hero and Blake was perfect in every way.” - Punya’s Reviews

Evernight's Naughty Nibbles
Food and reading are two of life’s greatest pleasures. From the sweetness of chocolate on your lips to the feel of a crisp page as you flip it over...both offer a unique level of satisfaction. Taste and text have long been capable of transporting people to another time and place, and our large selection of e-books already offer our readers an erotic escape. But at Evernight Publishing, we thought, what better way than to combine the two?

We asked our authors to step away from their latest plot and send us their favorite recipes. The end result was Evernight’s Naughty Nibbles—our holiday gift to you.

From savory treats to decadent desserts, there’s a recipe in here to tempt even the fussiest of palates. We’ve also included a special selection of best loved cocktails to get you in the holiday mood! Some of our authors may not be familiar around an oven but they do know a thing or two about mixing a drink.

So go on, whip something up…Evernight style.
