Business? Meet pleasure…

The Renaldis, Book 1

Paige Stewart has committed the ultimate nanny sin—she’s fallen in love with her boss. She adores Matteo Renaldi’s sweet, precocious son. Who wouldn’t? But it’s torture going about her day-to-day tasks, catching fleeting glimpses of the boy’s enigmatic father. Chastising herself for fantasizing she’s in the Renaldi master bed…

It’s ridiculous, pointless. After all, soon little Matty won’t need her anymore and she’ll move on.

Matteo has no interest in dating. He’s consumed by work, his son…and his son’s nanny. She’s everything he’s not: young, carefree, trusting, maybe a little naïve. She deserves better than an embittered widower. Yet when she accidentally falls into his arms, he can’t resist drawing her in for a kiss that quickly spirals out of control.

As they travel to his family’s home in Italy and slowly fall in love, the whispers start. And when one particularly ugly story blows up in their faces, their reputations might escape unscathed, but their hearts may not…

Without further ado, here’s Karen . . . 
(A big thank you, Stephanie for letting me share a bit of Rhett today here at your blog!)

Poor, poor Rhett Worth. He’s trying to do what’s right. Walk the straight and narrow line, throw himself into his work and focus on the new project his brothers gave him to work on. But the pretty perfumer he’s working with distracts him and he can’t get her out of his head. What’s a man to do? Be strong or give in to temptation?

Please enjoy this exclusive, never before seen teaser of an excerpt from Worth the Challenge, the latest in the Worth It series:

She was unexpectedly sassy and hell if that little hint of attitude didn’t turn him on. He’d tried his best to ignore her on the plane, diving headfirst into work, keeping his eyes focused on the laptop screen and not her. Sitting across from him, her pretty legs crossed and giving him a flash of ankle and shin, the teasing glimpse made him sweat.

Her shin and ankle, for the love of God. He was a boob man, an ass man. The sort of man who used to ask women to flash him their tits and they would do so willingly. Flash their chests, lift their skirts, it had all been so easy.

And now that he reflected on his past, it had been so empty.

He’d done a one-eighty because he knew it was the right thing to do. And he was still tempted—even more so, since she was like the forbidden fruit. Either Gabriella Durand had been sent by the devil himself to lure him back to the dark side or it was already too late.

Rhett was going straight to hell and there was no turning back.

Misery coursing through him, he watched as she walked down to the beach, her steps careful, her hair billowing all around her with the breeze. The dress she wore exposed an inordinate amount of skin compared to what she usually wore, and all of that pretty, creamy skin was on flagrant display. Waiting for the intense sun to char it to a bright red color, which he knew would be painful.

He was obsessed with her. Couldn’t get her out of his head, couldn’t stop wondering what it might be like, to really kiss her. Take her hand and lead her to his room. Strip that dress right off her and see her naked.

Want more? Oh, you know you do!

Worth The Challenge book blurb:
Together, they’re magic. Now to capture it in a bottle…
Worth It, Book 3
For once in his errant life, Rhett Worth is ready to prove to his older brothers he’s more than good looks and a woman-melting smile. Except he’s screwed up. And it’s about to hit the fan as he prepares to tell them he’s failed to deliver the master perfumer, Michel Durand, to create Worth Luxury’s signature scent.
Then salvation walks through the boardroom door, all wrapped up in a petite, seductive package.
Gabriella Durand is prepared to beg the Worths to give her capricious father another chance. Instead, she finds the devastatingly handsome Rhett Worth offering it to her as if he’d planned it all along. And Gabriella, hungry to emerge from her father’s shadow, jumps at it.
Soon they’re in Maui to hunt for the perfect scent…and find it in the tropical breeze that washes across their entwined bodies. Now the pressure is on to capture that passion in a bottle—before they let love complicate the delicate mix. Before a whiff of betrayal threatens to destroy everything.

Romance author Karen Erickson writes what she loves to read — sexy contemporary romance and sensual historical romance. Digitally published since 2006, she currently writes for Samhain Publishing, Entangled Publishing’s Bliss Imprint, Avon Impulse and Carina Press. A native Californian, she lives in the foothills below Yosemite with her husband and three children.

Recommended Read – Worth the Risk by Karen Erickson & Giveaway

Image from Karen Erickson’s website

Worth the Risk is book two in the Worth it series. I enjoyed every moment. I hated to see it end, but I desperately wanted to know how Gracie and Hunter would find their HEA.

Gracie is independent and never wants to get close to anyone, ever. Gracie’s decisions to push Hunter away stem from her past. A few times I wanted to shake some sense into her. However, in her defense, I knew what was going on in Hunter’s mind and how he felt about her. She didn’t have that comfort so her hesitant behavior is justified. She is a vibrant character who is strong.

Hunter doesn’t understand how his brother, Alex, can settle down with one woman for the rest of his life, which makes it even better as he falls hard for Gracie. He’s the take charge type who has everything in control, but he can control nothing with Gracie. 

The chemistry between these two heats up the pages. Hunter is downright yummy. They kept me enthralled. I couldn’t put the book down. 

I love that more of Rhett, the younger brother, is shown. He’s grown in maturity from book one, Worth the Scandal. I can’t wait for his book, Worth the Challenge. The glimpse of Rhett is just enough to make you eager for his book.



I recommend this book to any reader look for a sexy, contemporary romance. Definitely worth reading. 


To celebrate the release tomorrow I’m giving away one eBook of Worth the Risk from either Kindle or Nook (winner’s choice). Enter below for your chance to win. Winner will be announced Wednesday. 

Note: I requested an ARC of this book from the author.

Blurb from Karen Erickson’s website:

How to make a strong man fall hard? Refuse him.
Hunter Worth lives life to the absolute fullest. As vicepresident and head of brand marketing for Worth Luxury Goods, he’s brought hisfamily’s business firmly into the twenty-first century. Ruthless yet charming,he’s now set his sights on the sexiest member of the marketing team. Firstthing on his agenda? Seduction.
Gracie Hayes needs her job at Worth—and she’s not about tolet the gorgeous owner and her direct boss distract her—again. Orphaned, andwith a rough childhood behind her, she’s worked too hard to compromiseeverything for a fling, no matter how tempting. Independent, strong andresourceful, she will fight off Hunter. She has to.
Flirting, stolen kisses, a few nights of scorching hotsex…Hunter has all that in mind and more with the delicious Gracie. He neverfigures he’d fall in love or that she’d deny him. How will Hunter convinceGracie he’s the one for her?
