Title: Birthday Girl

Author: Lily Kate

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Birthday Girl:

Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot birthday suits.

Bad boy Cohen James has screwed up yet again. Star forward of Minnesota’s pro hockey team, Cohen’s made a name for himself—and not in a good way. So, at the insistence of his agent, he’s stuck volunteering at the local YMCA teaching introductory adult swim lessons for ten weeks. Ten weeks of torture.

What he doesn’t expect is her.

Annie Plymouth, star pupil.

Her ruffled green bathing suit might be the most ridiculous thing he’s ever seen, but after a few heated breaststroke lessons and some intense mouth to mouth, Cohen’s ready to get her out of the water and into her birthday suit… except she has a different game plan.

Is the pair destined to sink… or can they swim?

I step under the steam of the shower and let the water cascade down my back. The goose bumps wash away, as does the rush of adrenaline. Eventually, the nightmarish memories wash down the drain, too—at least for now.
Surprisingly, the only thing that doesn’t fade is the memory of Cohen’s hands around my waist. His fingers just a little too low, a little too close to my core. When he held me it was nice; it was strong, protective even, as if he’d never let me get hurt. This makes me even more annoyed because it’s the last thing I should be thinking about right now.
I stay under the water until another woman enters and decides it’s her time to shine in the karaoke spotlight that is the women’s locker room. She begins belting out a little ditty from Night at the Roxbury, and I decide it’s time for me to leave before my eardrums turn in their resignation letters.
I towel off, change, and return to watch my grandmother’s synchronized swimming class once I’ve calmed down. If I didn’t absolutely have to stay, I’d already be gone. Unfortunately, Gran’s my ride home. Well, my mother is, technically, and she won’t let me leave Gran here, so I have no choice but to wait.
As I enter the pool area, the last thing I expect to see is Cohen James, asshole extraordinaire, holding a baby. And looking sexy as hell doing it. 
Before my ovaries combust, I turn away from where he’s teaching something that looks like a toddler swim class and face a bunch of women in their eighties attempting handstands and dance moves in the water. The change in scenery from Cohen James to retired synchronized swimming is not ideal, but it’ll have to work.
Because the way Cohen’s gaze met mine just now, across the open pool, a look of apology waiting specifically for me—the whole thing nearly wiped away my entire grudge against him. His eyes have an almost magnetic pull to them, as if begging me to run across the deck and jump into his arms.
That’s out of the question, however, since I’m still pissed at him.
Maybe, someday, I’ll forgive him. 
Then, maybe, I’ll let him kiss me.

After many years of starting books and never finishing, she took to Word in April 2015 determined to write and finish her first novel. Nights that turned into mornings and a whole lot of unruly characters, she finished Hearts Aligned. Residing in sunny Southwest Florida, she lives with family, five dogs, a cat, a tank full of fish, and a bearded dragon named Toad.


Kris Johnston is the best-selling author of paranormal fan favorites; The R.I.P. Series and This Beautiful Curse. She is a single mother of six, a native of Southern California, and loves all things indie. Her obsession with writing began at the age of 8 with poetry and grew over the years.

Angie Brocker has been writing since the 3rd grade, and over the years, her passion for the written word continues to grow. She obtained her BA in English Literature with a Creative Writing emphasis and discovered a love of editing. Years later, she has been published on 101 Words, Eskimopie and has been a featured writer on Spillwords. Currently, she is also writing vows for weddings as an ordained minister.

Married with four grown children, Angie enjoys spending as much time with her family as possible. She also loves her dogs and cat, being a manager for a Paranormal Investigating team and compulsively watching The Walking Dead.


Trinity lives with her husband and children in Virginia. She grew up overseas in Turkey and Japan, where her love of reading developed due to a lack of English-speaking television. As her need for written works grew, so did her desire to create worlds for others to enjoy. By the time she was in middle school she had started writing short stories. She endeavors to break the mold where modern stereo-types are concerned and create engaging characters.

When she's not writing or working, Trinity still enjoys settling down to read a book or doing graphic art in her spare time.


Voted 2016 Spillwords Author of the Year, Alyssa Brocker began writing during her freshman year of college. With the creative efforts of her theatre troupe, they produced an original play written in prose. After that experience, writing was all she wanted to do.

The series is written only from post-it notes, along with honest photography. She lives with her puppy, Dobby, who is always her first reader.

Whether in a book or on screen, she’s a sucker for an epic love story. She lives with her husband and two young children in Central Massachusetts.



Brianna West lives in beautiful Northern California with her wonderful husband and four adorable children. She writes funny, real stories that are accompanied by humor and supernatural elements. First published in October 2015, Brianna has gone on to add several books to her main series and spin-off series since then. 

Her stories feature sassy, strong heroines; hunky, supernatural heroes; a sordid amount of action; enough humor to leave you laughing all the way through; and a world that will fill you with an overwhelming desire to be a part of it.
