The Talon Pack continues with an outcast witch and a wolf who can see past the darkness.

As Heir to the Talon Pack, Ryder Brentwood carries the responsibility of not only protecting his Pack, but ensuring its future. Only no one knows that as he does this, he must also shield his people from their past. When a witch with no ties bursts into his life, he must decide if he can overcome the depravity of his secrets and trust the one person who could break the fragile hold on his control.

Grieving over the loss of her twin and on the run from the unknown, Leah Helm knows she is far more alone than she thought possible. Her coven shunned her before she was born and the wolves she sought protection with are in a war of their own. When a wolf with a whisper of secrets is forced to work with her in order to protect their people, she finds she might not be so alone after all.

The world knows more than they ever have before about those shrouded in darkness, while Ryder and Leah are thrust into the center of a conflict they never should have been part of to begin with. On their journey they must not only fight those against them, but the burning temptation that is flaring between them. Fate might have paved their path, but that doesn’t mean they have to follow.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love the Talon Pack series, each installment adds more to the complexity of the pack.

With the outing of the wolves to humans, the wolves now find they have another problem. Finding Leah wounded and her brother dead, they need to know what happened to have them on the run from the humans.

Without a coven to turn to, Leah has no choice but to accept the offer of sanctuary from the Talons. She can only hope she doesn’t further incur the wrath of the coven that shunned her.

From the moment Ryder held Leah as she grieved for her brother, he knew the women curled into him was his mate. He doesn’t have time for mating there are too many unknowns going on, regarding both the witches and humans.

A favorite scene is when he tells her he can’t mate with her after growling at his brother.

“You’re messing with me, Ryder. You can’t growl at your brother for touching me. You can’t think you own me when you told me yourself you wanted nothing to do with me.”

“I never said that.” He breathed in through his nose, his chest lifting. “I said I can’t mate with you. There’s a difference. I fucking want you, Leah. I want you beneath me, over me, around me. I want to sink into your heat and fuck you hard against the wall. I want to grip your hips while I pump into you. I want you so fucking much Leah. And I can’t have you the way my wolf wants you.”

She blinked. Shocked. “But…”

“I can’t mate with you, no matter how much I want to.”

“You need to explain that, Ryder. It’s not fair to either of us if you don’t.”
Mated in Mist (Talon Pack Book 3) (Kindle Locations 1105-1111). Kindle Edition.

Between losing her brother and confronted the coven that shunned her and then this not mating thing with Ryder, Leah is a confused bundle of emotion.

Talk about a man who refuses to accept his fate. Ryder’s secret will be revealed and their will be further growth and change for the Talon Pack.

Lots of surprises in this book, we have love, angst, dishonor, betrayal, sex that starts at a simmer and then bursts into flame, and so much more.

The Omega Team! Keeping Karen by Heather Long

Keeping Karen

Omega Team

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

IT Specialist Karen Harkness didn’t realize the depth of the conspiracy she uncovered until someone blew up her car. When the police want her in protective custody, it shoves her in the path of U.S. Marshal Ethan James—the first man she ever loved.

Ethan James has been considering a change of employment, so he isn’t adverse to the potential job offer from the Omega Team. When he’s called in on the case of Karen Harkness, however—the girl who got away—he won’t let anything stop him from keeping her safe.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

The last place Karen thought she’d run into Ethan was the Marshall’s office. She was anxious and fear radiated through her as she chats with her cat Luther through the carrier door.  She was just doing her job, perhaps a bit too thoroughly.

When Marshall Ethan James sees that Karen is truly HIS Karen, he is determined to keep her safe. So much so that he disappears right off the grid with only the Omega team knowing where they are. His first priority is to keep her safe and the fact that he still loves her makes it hard to keep everything professional.

Anyone who has a cat can appreciate these two little snippets that are favorites of mine. These come from the journey to the safe house.

His phone buzzed, and he checked the message from Grey. Two words, On it. Since the man offered him a potential job and told him about the Omega Team, he’d called in a favor and texted him about Karen’s situation. Sliding the phone away, he spared another glance for his silent passenger. Her cat in the carrier in the back seat was as silent as the woman herself. He’d checked twice, just to make sure the animal was actually in there. No cat he knew had ever been that quiet in a carrier.
“Are you sure that’s a real cat?” It wasn’t the best attempt at starting a conversation, but maybe it would distract her.

“Hmm?” She twisted in the seat and looked at the carrier in the back then at him. “Luthor’s not a social creature. Well, he is, but only on his terms. I think he’s plotting my demise, since he’s been subjected to one indignity after another.”
The Omega Team: Keeping Karen (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Kindle Locations 312-318). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

And then this:

Luthor let out the most pathetic little sound that was more ‘ow’ than ‘meow’ and she twisted to look back at him. Two minutes later, Ethan opened the back door and then nudged open the door to the carrier. He slid in a can of food and a small dish of water.

“Poor guy’s been stuck in here all day and he hasn’t made a mess yet but I figured he was hungry.” To her shock, Luthor let Ethan run a hand over his head and released a rumbling purr. He clicked the door shut again, then glanced at her.

“Do you need anything to drink?”

They were at a gas station of some kind.

“Water would be nice.”

“Okay, stay here.” He shut the door and the locks engaged. He put gas in the tank then he walked back inside. When he returned, he had a litter box, a small bag of litter, and some bottles of water. He put the first bits in the back, then finished up with refueling the car before sliding into the driver’s seat. Half-expecting him to be exhausted, she found his lack of coffee surprising. “Water.” The bottle was ice cold, and she twisted it open to gulp it down.
The Omega Team: Keeping Karen (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Kindle Locations 388-395). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

A quick and satisfying read. You can feel their frustration of an investigation going slowly and Karen’s growing compulsion to assist. The love and sexual tension coming through right to the end.

I am truly loving the Omega Team and their new recruits.

Violence.

I’m addicted to it. It’s how I feel alive. It’s the only thing that’s real any more.

And now I have to sit around and discuss it like it’s physics or calculus. I can’t do it. I can’t pretend that it’s some sterile academic topic. Violence isn’t sterile. It isn’t calm. It’s pulsing. It’s alive.

It’s my drug.

Until I met Abby, I never wanted anything beyond the next fight. Never considered that I might finally find a way back to the land of the living.

Now? Now I find myself dreaming of a woman with golden eyes.

But I can never be with her. Because I am not whole. And I never will be again.

But I cannot stay away.

And loving her might finally be what breaks me.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Another powerful read filled with things we don’t usually think about. Our soldiers who come home, not necessarily outwardly injured but injured just the same.

You never know what might trigger some memory for an ex-soldier. PTSD is alive and well, this is a story that deals with that truth and the things that can and do define it.

Josh suffers from PTSD in more than just the anger and violence, there is also anxiety and it’s effects. When he meets Amy he knows he should stay away but she soothes him, helps him focus.

Abby has had a lot of pain in her life, she doesn’t want to like Josh, she doesn’t want to need him but she does. This scene is right after their class on Violence, it is when they introduce themselves.

“What’s your name?” His voice is low and quiet. Steady now. Almost calm.

I turn, unable to avoid looking at him now.

It dawns on me that no, I don’t know his name.

I stand there for a moment, hesitant. The last time this happened, I fell too far, too fast.

This time will be different. Because I’m not going to make the same mistake twice.

It’s like standing too close to an electrical current.

The simplicity of the question is deceptively benign.

I’m drawn to him in a way that is unhealthy and dangerous. He’s already consuming my thoughts, drawing my attention away from the matter at hand and luring me down a dark corridor where only dark thoughts and whispered need twist together.

I hold up one hand, needing to break the spell or whatever is going on between us. My hand collides with his chest, and I am flush against the stark reminder of this man’s strength and power and capability to do violence.

Before the rational part of my brain kicks in, I brush my fingertips gently over the bruised and damaged skin above his eye.

He goes still beneath my touch. That full bottom lip opens a little. A tiny space, but I can feel the heat of his breath on my wrist.

His eyes are locked on mine. I’m trapped, unable to move. I’m not sure I want to. I’m furious for him but I’m frozen, burning where my fingers touch his skin.

I cannot move. Cannot look away.

“I’m Josh,” he whispers. An answer to an unasked question.

I swallow the sudden lump blocking my throat. “Abby.”

“Abby.” He repeats my name and it sounds something like a prayer, whispered in reverence and awe.
Break My Fall (Falling Book 2) (Kindle Locations 549-561). Jessica Scott. Kindle Edition.

A slow building relationship with many ups and downs, and some very hot scenes. All together a thought provoking, emotional and intense read.

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Aimee O’Brien has harbored a not-so-little crush on her school’s new first-grade teacher since the beginning of the year. Tall, muscled, with long hair and a beard, and a penchant for wearing silly ties to amuse his students…the man is too gorgeous for words. As the PE teacher, Aimee’s wardrobe consists of casual gym clothing not likely to catch anyone’s eye. So no one is more surprised than her when Tony makes his interest clear.

Tony Santoro’s time in the military directly influenced his new choice of career—and his choice in women. He’s looking for someone of substance, and Aimee has far more to offer than just her adorably disheveled look. He can’t wait to see what’s hiding under those sweatpants and tees—but he might have missed his chance. The very day he finally works up the nerve to ask Aimee out, is the day unspeakable violence explodes in the school.

Trapped in the gym, Aimee and Tony will have to work together to get out with their lives…and the lives of the dozens of students trapped with them.

Author’s Note:
In this story, Aimee and Tony deal with a threat that’s all too real in today’s society; the subject matter may be too sensitive for some readers.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love the Delta Force series and while this book is only loosely related it has the same impact. These are troubled times in our country and unfortunately the subject of this book has happened more than once.

Both Aimee and Tony are ex-military. They both love their teaching jobs and she has had a crush on him since she met him. Tony on the other hand has one teacher throwing herself at him impervious to his non-interest.

Aimee rescues him by accident from an uncomfortable situation at lunchtime and in the process gets a date with him. Here is a favorite scene.

Tony was sitting at one of the tables at the back of the small space, and Marci was sitting next to him. She was leaning toward him with her hand on her chin, elbow on the table. At first glance it looked they were having an intimate conversation, but when Aimee looked closer, she could see Tony was sitting rigid in his seat and was looking down at his lunch, and not at her.
Aimee took one step into the room and saw Tony suddenly stand up and give her a chin lift. Ignoring Marci, who was now almost trying to plant herself in his lap, he called out to Aimee, “Hey, I’ve been waiting for you. I’m ready, I’ll just grab my stuff and be there in a second.”
Aimee stood paralyzed for a moment, wondering what in the heck he was talking about. She’d been known to be scatterbrained sometimes, but she knew she’d never forget making plans to be with Tony during lunch.
Never.
No way in hell.
It would’ve been tattooed on her brain.
She watched as he quickly gathered his uneaten sandwich and chips and stuffed them back into the fabric lunch bag he’d brought with him. It had Elsa from Frozen on it, and was most likely a gift from one of his first-graders. The fact that this manly-looking specimen would use it for his lunch was another punch in Aimee’s gut. He didn’t even look embarrassed to be carrying it either. Damn.
Marci pouted up at him, obviously unhappy their lunch together was being interrupted. Tony leaned down and said something to her. Marci stopped pouting and smiled prettily up at him. She put her hand on his hip, and Tony quickly took a step backward, dislodging her hand but pretending not to notice.
The other teachers in the room watched the little drama playing out, but Aimee couldn’t tell what they were thinking. Tony waved at the room in general as he came up to her.
Tony sighed in relief at Aimee’s presence. He’d been sitting next to Marci, wondering how in the hell he was going to extricate himself from her clutches, when Aimee walked in. Marci had been getting more and more aggressive in her pursuit of him, but he didn’t want anything to do with her. He’d heard the gossip; it was impossible not to hear it, as the other teachers seemed to love to talk. Apparently, Marci had a bet with another one of the fifth-grade teachers that she’d have him in her bed by the end of the school year. Tony didn’t know what the bet was for, but he didn’t want any part of the pretty-but-she-knew-it teacher.
The Omega Team: Assisting Aimee (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Delta Force Heroes Book 99) (Kindle Locations 215-236). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

When his class joins another for gym with Aimee they hear gunshots. A very tense situation and one that requires a clear head and fast action. I think this is when I started holding my breath.

I couldn’t put this book down, the waiting and the interactions will hold you entranced until the final page. The Omega Team and Ghost’s Delta team, joins with the local police to try to talk down the shooter. I did a bit of crying here. This was truly an intense story and the way the romance works its way in was perfect. I don’t know many authors who could have pulled this off as well.

Thank you, Susan.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

In this second book of the Brazilians. Leonardo is the one who is captivated. However he believes he is betrayed by the beautiful Satyanna. He couldn’t believe her audacity, she seduced him while her partner Harry stole a priceless statue. One with more sentimental value to him than monetary.

When she calls him from prison a year later, she isn’t sure what his reaction would be. All she is sure of is she wants to go home to the United States and start over. This is part of that conversation, a favorite scene.

Leonardo’s jaw tightened. She saw the muscle flicker. “He stole from me.”

She chewed on her lower lip. “He did. When he took me on this trip to Brazil, he sold me on the idea we’d spend some time together and have fun. I came along because I wanted to believe him, and I did. Even though he wasn’t the best role model, he cared for me in his way. Or so I thought.” She took a deep breath. “Will you help me get out?”

He stepped toward the bars, and she toyed with the metal. The atmosphere around her shifted, and keeping the stare proved difficult. There was a strange gleam in his eyes. Her entire body roared, her flesh a lot weaker than her resolve. There was no way in hell she would give in to that attraction again; she just had to leash her hormones.

“Under one condition. If I take you out of this place and keep you from being accused of the crime I know you committed, you are mine,” he said, his voice dropping an octave when he pronounced the last word. His rich, unforgiving Brazilian accent was like the cherry on a hot fudge sundae.

She blinked. “Yours?”

His jaw clenched. “You will help me find Harry. You will stay under my watch until I find him and get my sculpture back. If not, I guarantee you this dirty prison won’t be the worst thing that happens to you.”
Brazilian Revenge (The Brazilians) (Kindle Locations 347-357). Entangled Publishing, LLC. Kindle Edition.

Thus we embark on a tale of intrigue and murder. Topped off with sexual frustration, need and finally an explosive release. A heart rending story guaranteed to please.

Maxwell Sauvage was born into a life of privilege…and boredom. As a “security consultant” to the powerful, he enjoys pitting his wits against the most intricate of security systems for business and pleasure.

Anya Swift is a woman with high-class tastes and a high-octane need for adventure. As an operative for International Art and Antiquities Recovery she stays just on the “right” side of the law, while satisfying her desire for the finer things and her thirst for adventure.

When a high tech camera catches Anya taking The Fortunate Buddha from the French Ambassador’s vault, Max is eager to help the provocative thief for his own reasons, not the least of which being that he set the camera. But after one stunning night of passion, Anya disappears. Now Max must find Anya before the Ambassador’s men and claim the thief for his own, but they are running against a clock, danger and deception.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Anya has stolen The Fortunate Buddha to return it to the proper owners. Unfortunately she sees a camera in the vault, one she knew nothing about. Now to replace the Buddha and escape with no one being the wiser. She needed help and that came in the form of Max. He could help her, she just had to fight the strong attraction she felt for him.

“I removed the Buddha from the vault. But I need to return it.” Her smile flickered, a fraction of uncertainty echoing in her words.

“You what?” Why did the words startle him? She’s a thief. I saw her take the manuscript. She’s linked to the disappearance of so many other items. That’s why I planted the flat cam, because it was just the thing to attract her. Score in one shot.

“I’m not going to say it again.” Her sultry little laugh knocked over his objections.

“All right.” He understood. He scouted their surroundings. Despite the number of couples on the dance floor, the music shifted to a slower moody piano piece. Tugging her more firmly against him, he enjoyed the supple feel of her warm softness relaxing into him. “You don’t have to say it again. But if you want my help, I want something in return.”

For a brief moment, he wondered at his words. Why would he challenge her? Wasn’t this what he’d wanted all along? To have her come to him? To seek him out? Here she was…in his arms. And he wanted to make a deal.

“I’m listening.” Her voice, low and husky, shot him through with warmth. Their first regrettable tango in Paris ended when she walked away. He’d blamed her, blamed himself. He’d given her too much power. But this was a chance to explore the passion simmering beneath every word.
Catch Me (Love Thieves #1) (Kindle Locations 300-310). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

With simmering lust and even hotter passion this book leads us on a merry chase in more ways than one. Danger and intrigue throughout this wonderful tale.

I can’t wait to see what Heather has in store for these two.

Her Marine Prince
by
Heather Long

Small Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Princess Francesca “Frankie” Grace has no interest in scandal or pomp and circumstance. Her desire for a military career puts her on a collision course with retired Marine Hugh Dillon.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

Princess Francesca is no ordinary princess. She wants to follow in her father’s footsteps and serve in the Royal Marines. Unfortunately they don’t permit women in their ranks. Fortunately Frankie knows somewhere that does. The USMC allows women and she wants in. The only prerequisite she doesn’t meet yet is residency. Beyond that she is also going to need Prince Armand’s approval as well.

When she approaches her father, he issues a challenge to her. Complete this mock basic training camp program and he will support her all the way.

The camp is run by Hugh Dillon a former Marine and acquaintance of her father. Hugh has been told not to take it easy on Frankie. This must be a true test as to whether she can handle joining the Marines.

I love a strong woman and Frankie certainly is that. This is a favorite passage from hand to hand training.

“You four switch partners and work on choke holds. Frankie, you’re with me.”
Her heart pounded at the invitation wrapped in the order. Leaping off the fence, she strode to the center of the ring. The others headed to the separate areas and began grappling for a chokehold.
Suddenly, she was locked in Hugh’s arms and, for a split second, his arm tightened on her throat. Real panic swamped her, and she slapped his forearm before fighting to grip his fingers. Sweat on her hands and his made it almost impossible. His lips pressed close enough to her ear for her to feel his breath. “When you’re in a fight, you should pay attention to the person closest to you, not what’s happening elsewhere.”
Slamming her head back, she jammed her foot into his instep. The moment his arms loosened, she broke the hold and caught his forearm. One moment he had her, and the next she flipped him. Training had her holding his arm as he struck the ground.
Oh crap.
The last thing Hugh expected when he seized on her distraction to deliver a lesson was to find himself flat on his back with her in control of his arm. Shock rippled across her fierce expression, and her grip on him loosened. “Sorry.”
Huh. Unwilling to let her back down, he adjusted his grip and tugged her off her feet with the intention of flipping her. A fresh spark of surprise broke through and, instead of going where he sent her, she became dead weight. He had to let her go and roll, lest her knees slam into his chest.
Jumping to his feet, he pivoted to face her. Frankie hadn’t wasted any time in standing. “Nice.” He paid her the compliment. “Now defend.” How much did she know? The best way to learn was to come at her in a series of feints to see which one she would fall for. Speed was definitely on her side. Although slighter than him and definitely shorter, she moved with grace and alacrity, avoiding his more obvious feints while not leaving herself open for a real blow. Forearms up, she blocked a couple of lighter jabs and he pulled the punches enough to avoid real harm if her guard came down.
The last thing he wanted to do was explain a black eye to her father or her bodyguards. When she gave him no openings up top, he went to sweep her legs and ended up with a snap kick to his chest. The blow knocked him off balance, and he tumbled.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 666-684).  . Kindle Edition.

 

The story that unfolds will have you laughing, shaking your head, and sighing with approval. With sexual frustration and some very hot sex, a wonderful opening to this anthology.

Billionaire ruler of a Mediterranean principality, Prince Alexandre of Androcco took one look at Anastazia Carmichael and knew he wanted her. And he’s determined to have her. In his arms. In his bed. Any way he can get her.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

This one starts off with a major OOPS as Stazzi sends off an email meant for her best friend to the Prince. I really felt her pain as she tried to retrieve it unsuccessfully. All she could do is wait for the axe to fall. Within Prince Alexandre’s arrival is one of my favorite passages.

“I’m sure you’ll find Grant and Adrian more than sufficient—” She broke off her brisk dismissal as the prince stepped forward, totally invading her space as he lowered his head and spoke softly beside her ear.

“‘ A princely pain in the fucking ass’?”

Stazzi felt the color leech from her cheeks at hearing the prince quietly quote those words directly from her email. Even her lips felt numb, and she was pretty sure her eyes had widened guiltily as the prince moved back only slightly to look down at her in challenge, the warmth of his breath a soft caress against her jaw.

She couldn’t look away, was held totally captive by those predatory green eyes.

Intense, compelling eyes, that told her she hadn’t misunderstood him. That this man meant exactly what he’d said. He did want her. Physically. Tied to his bed or otherwise.

That realization was a little overwhelming. Flattering too, if she was honest with herself. The man was a prince, for goodness’ sake, and as rich as Croesus. What woman wouldn’t feel flattered at being told she was wanted by him?

Except it wasn’t going to happen. She was almost engaged, and even if she hadn’t been, she certainly didn’t supply those sorts of needs for the hotel guests.

Alexandre admired the light of rebellion that appeared in Anastazia’s eyes even as the color returned to her cheeks and she tilted her chin in an attempt to return his challenging gaze.

When an expected proposal turns into a break-up Stazzi decides to take a chance. A double date with her friend Lizzie and Alexandre’s friend and security advisor Asher ends with the couples heading their separate ways. Stazzi and Alexandre into a steamy hot interlude with a surprise. Lizzie and Asher well lots is insinuated but nothing confirmed.

Angel: The first time I met Gideon Black, I was a teen who hated him with a passion that kept me awake at night.

Gideon: A tease at sixteen, Angel has grown into an irresistible, kick-ass woman. I know exactly what I want to do to her—how thoroughly, and for how long.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

A troubled kingdom, a princess about to become queen and a bodyguard with more on his mind than just keeping her safe. Angel’s country couldn’t afford Blackheart security, yet the Council had hired them specifically Gideon to protect her from her Uncle’s nefarious efforts to eliminate her. One of my favorite passages is the disclosure of her problems to Gideon.

The more she talked to Gideon, the more her feelings were conflicted. She needed him, but she couldn’t afford him. She wanted him close, but she couldn’t afford to become attached to him— and there was a real danger of that if he stayed.
“I don’t know how I’m going to do it yet,” she admitted, “but in memory of my father I will restore this country to its former glory and make it safe. And I won’t waste one hot dime on myself.”
“There’s no question of payment.” Gideon’s tone suggested she had offended him. “I’m here to protect you, and that’s what I’m going to do.”
She let his words sink in, and then started fretting over the next problem.
“And I have to marry.”
“So?” Gideon probed.
Flattening her lips, she refused to say more. The last thing she wanted to share with Gideon was her opinion on marriage and sex, let alone sex with some stranger.
“You also have to provide an heir,” he said bluntly. It shocked her that he knew everything, but of course he knew everything.
Gideon would make it his business to know everything there was to know about a potential client.
“And you have to provide this heir within a year of ascending the throne,” he added. “My best guess? You can’t find the right man for the job.”
 
Her cheeks blazed red, and she retorted without thinking, “Why? Are you offering?”
“Why not?” Gideon’s powerful shoulders eased in a careless shrug. “Better the devil you know, Princess.”
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 3389-3400).  . Kindle Edition.
A very hot, twisty, up and down emotional and suspenseful read. The fire between Angel and Gideon is such that you can’t wait to see what will become of their relationship.

Corrupted by the Prince

On the heels of his worse scandal yet, Prince Kostas of Mykorini decides to keep a low profile at his American beach home in the Hamptons. Taking a lover isn’t part of his plan until he meets Eva. Evelynn Fairchild knows she should be wary of the bad boy prince, especially when she’s considered the levelheaded one in her high profile family. But one earth shattering kiss makes her wonder if she should ditch her virginity status in what surely will be a one-night stand.

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

Prince Kostas didn’t expect to be intrigued by a beauty merely reading on the beach, but he was. In an attempt to possibly run into her again he accepted an invitation to a costume ball. He didn’t have a costume so he made do with the clothes he had on hand, a business suit.

Evelynn never attended these events, but this time it was her parents hosting. She promised her sister she would at least come and make the rounds. She never expected to see the Prince there, let alone before she ever made it to the party. This is one of my favorite scenes.

“Are you, Eva?” His voice dropped an octave, becoming low and gravely. “Just waiting for the right person?”

He couldn’t have known she was a virgin. Couldn’t have known she would take his guess and twist it to suit her own needs, but suddenly and selfishly, she did. No, she wasn’t waiting for the ‘right person’ to turn on her naughty side, but she had been waiting for the right person to make her feel a hot awareness and desire like this. To make her feel something.

Somehow, this man— this bad boy prince of a small island outside of Greece— had been the one to wake that dormant part of her life. And she couldn’t make herself walk away from this moment, no matter how completely foolish it seemed.

“You know what? Maybe I am.” It hardly seemed like her own voice. Confident and husky.

She didn’t hide her eyes from him, and was thankful as she watched his gaze darken.

The only warning she had of his next move was the slight flaring of his nostrils, before his head swooped low. There was no asking permission, no gentle coaxing, just the sudden, intoxicating firmness of his mouth claiming hers.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 4570-4578). . Kindle Edition.

An explosion turns the Prince’s world upside down and Eva’s too as her sister leaks information to the press.

A delightful, hot read with twists and turns to keep you on your toes.

Sir Antony Richarden is determined to win the King’s Favor, a prize which will save his family estate and secure his nieces’ future. His only obstacle? Princess Estelle of Dirksbee, the woman he left at the altar is going to make this competition more than difficult. Never mind the fact he still has feelings for Estelle…

Small Review Spring Blog - Copy

What can one say about a man who’s brother dies right before his wedding, and he has to postpone it? That he is awesome and takes on custody of his nieces, triplets who have already lost their mother. He is struggling to keep the girls in their home that is falling apart, one of the many things necessary is a new roof. On top of that Miss Crumb from the Royal Children’s Bureau keeps showing up to make their lives miserable. Trying to prove him unfit to care for them. A way out for him is to win the King’s Favor, a treasure hunt of sorts with a nice monetary prize as well as a renewal of his honor. Honor he somehow managed to lose when his brother died and his wedding called off.

Antony also has the ire of Princess Estelle for not contacting her after the postponement of the wedding. He had tried repeatedly and been turned away by her father’s secretary Boris and advised to stay away.

Both of them have been suffering and now the King’s Favor is the one thing that will elevate one of them back to the top of their game. Tony needs this to keep his nieces with him in their home. Estelle needs this to regain her reputation, tarnished by being left almost at the alter

They love each other still and by a cruel twist of fate the King has made them partners in this quest. This is just part of the conversation in the car. One of my favorite scenes .
If only she had known then that the man was her doom.

Her drug. Unfortunately, she was still as addicted as ever. “Don’t think I’m going to make this easy on you.”

“I wouldn’t expect it, Princess. Nothing about you was ever easy.”

She leaned forward. “You cost me my reputation.”

“That was not my intention.”

“You didn’t even have the decency to call. Not a single frickin’ call.”

He squinted, but said nothing. He folded his arms and slouched back, looking all masculine and cocky.

She laughed. “You think you’re going to win this thing, don’t you?”

“I don’t think, Princess. I know.”

“You should drop out. Leave now while you still have some shred of a reputation left.”

“I’m not a quitter, Estelle. You of all people should know that about me. I don’t give up. When I put my mind to something I follow through. Every time.”

“Except where I was concerned.”

He gave her a poignant stare, but refrained from speaking. He spent the rest of the short ride staring out the window, avoiding looking her way as if she were some kind of plague.

She was going to beat Tony. Show him exactly what type of tough stuff she was made of, what he lost by leaving her.
Royals & Rogues (Kindle Locations 5900-5910). Kindle Edition.

From here between the quest and the people working behind the scenes to destroy him, decisions are made. Love takes the fore and the sex is spectacular.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Desiree Holt is in my opinion the best of all romance writers. I have never been disappointed in any of her books. This book was no exception and I love the fact that it is a stepping stone to an exciting new Series that will be contributed to by many wonderful authors.

In this first book of the series, Grey is fulfilling a promise to a fallen comrade in arms.

When he breaks into a senator’s home to get the evidence he needs to take him down he is surprised by Athena. 

Athena is a cop who is tired of seeing her bosses be paid off and thumbing their noses at justice.

Disabling her and getting her to his home is a challenge, even more so as they try to figure out each other’s motives. Once they come to an understanding they realize they need sleep and Grey is fighting his attraction to her. This is a favorite scene as he is attempting to get bedding for her.

“I mean it about the couch, Grey. I’ve slept in worse places. Forget chivalry, okay?”

Maybe that was for the best. He could lock himself in his room until morning.

“Let me give you some blankets and stuff.”

She followed him to the linen closet in the short hallway where he rooted around for bedding. When he turned to hand it to her, she was right there, so close to him in that narrow hallway he could almost count her eyelashes.

What the hell. Dropping the bedding and dragging her up against his body. He had one fleeting moment to notice how well they fit together before winding her thick tresses around his hand to hold her head in place and bringing his mouth down on hers.
 Raw Edge of Danger (The Omega Team Series Book 1) (Kindle Locations 551-557).

From here everything gets interesting as they both try to get answers and find the correct person to take the whole thing down.

When they come together it is an explosion of emotion and some of the hottest sex you will ever read.

Love, Love, Love this beginning!

On the outside, Meagan Hollister appears to have it all—including a successful career. On the inside, a fifteen-year-old secret torments her, and the horrors she faced as a child are about to come back to haunt her.

Parker Darwin has been pursuing Meagan since the day they met. Though they’ve shared several steamy encounters, when he pushes for commitment—and submission in the bedroom—she runs cold.

Meagan’s past catches up fast and, terrified, she goes into hiding, feeding Parker only the vaguest of details. He has fallen hard. Even her reluctance to give herself over to him doesn’t hide her naturally submissive tendencies. But she holds her secrets close.

When all hell breaks loose, she insists on handling her problems alone. She can’t imagine a life that includes Parker—not permanently anyway. The hurdles are too high. The damage to her psyche is too extensive.

But will Parker accept Meagan’s insistent denial? Or will he breach her walls and show her another possibility?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This book was a gift in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Once again I have started a series somewhere in the middle instead of the beginning. That said, know I have already acquired the first two.

This book just jumps right in with a scene so hot I thought my kindle was going to melt. Trust me when I say this book will not cool off anytime soon. Well it does but not for very long.

The secret Meagan is keeping hidden should never have been. Even with her therapy she hasn’t dealt with everything. Her attraction to Parker, her undeniable submissive tendencies could bring her happiness with him as her Dom. If she would only let him all the way in.

Parker is patient but knows there is something she keeps hidden. When all hell breaks loose, Meagan continues to deny him what he desires most. Her submission, to him, forever. While he asks her often in this book this is one of my favorites.

A few seconds ticked by, unnerving me while his gaze penetrated my body. I couldn’t see him, and he had full view of me.
“When was the last time you had a serious relationship?”
“Never.”
“Never,” he repeated. “I see.”
Did he?
He set his hands on both sides of my head and leaned forward. His lips hit mine, softening me with their touch. And then he spoke against my mouth. “Submit to me. No one will know. I promise. We’ll keep it to ourselves for as long as you desire. You can trust me.”
The Prize (Kindle Locations 399-404). Becca Jameson. Kindle Edition.

 

I was really angry at many people in this book especially her parents and therapist. They should never have let her get away with the things she did. In spite of her physical age, her mentality dealing with the situation was that of a scared 10 year old. I kept waiting for her to wake up and smell the coffee. A quick satisfying read, one with suspense, sizzling hot sex, submission and a red hot Dom.

Excerpt Spring Blog - Copy

“Parker… Oh. My. God.”
That was all I managed to say before he threw his hand over my mouth.
I moaned into his palm in the near darkness, letting my head fall back against the wall so he could nibble a path up toward my ear. Lights wouldn’t have done me any good anyway since my vision was currently completely blurred. The dim light from under the closed door was enough.
His lips hit my ear. “I’m certain…” He thrust into me harder. “You don’t want…” And again, deeper. “Anyone to…” He pulled almost out. “Hear us…” He released my mouth and stroked his fingers down to cup my breast. The lace of my bra rubbed against my nipple, making me arch into his touch.
I grabbed his biceps and tugged his muscular body closer. “Do. Not. Stop.” My voice didn’t sound like me at all, but Jesus, I needed to come.
Again.
I’d had the first orgasm within moments of shutting the door to the janitor’s closet. What I wanted now was a mind-blowing vaginal orgasm. A slice of pure heaven. And something I’d only ever experienced under Parker Darwin’s control. Two times so far. I intended to make it three.
He chuckled. “Honey, I’m not in the habit of taking orders from my women.”
I gripped him harder while he held himself at my entrance, not thrusting back into me like my body craved. I released his arms to slide my hands up to his face, cupping his cheeks. “Please.” I tried to at least sound contrite. At that point I was willing to do almost anything to reach my goal.
Parker slammed back into me, pressing my back against the wall.
I released his face to wrap my fingers around the narrow counter under my ass for balance. My dress was bunched up around my waist, but it didn’t hinder my clit from rubbing against the base of Parker’s cock with every thrust.
So close…
“Come for me, Meagan.”
With his words, I shattered, my pussy grasping at his cock. My clit pulsed with raw need. A squeal escaped my lips, but Parker covered my mouth again and held his hand firmly against my lips.
“That’s it, honey. You’re so fucking gorgeous when you come.”
I groaned around his palm as he continued to thrust into me until he stopped abruptly, buried to the hilt, and let his own release fill the condom.
When he was spent, he heaved for air, his forehead leaning against mine. His hands smoothed up the bodice of my dress and over my shoulders until he threaded them into my hair.
I was going to have to do some serious surgery on my curls before I would be presentable enough to return to the reception.
“Submit to me,” he whispered against my mouth.
“Never,” I responded, giving him a brief kiss.
Even his lips were perfect. Soft. Sure. Maddening. He smiled against me.
The first time we’d had sex—two weeks ago after the bachelor and bachelorette parties of our respective best friends—he’d used those lips alone to make me come. And then he’d used his thick length to drive his point home.
He was right. The chemistry between us was intense.
I had assumed the secret, middle-of-the-night booty call had been a one-time event. We had both been a little tipsy, and the air was charged around us. We were staying at Cade and Amy’s house where Cade was fucking his fiancée, and our other two friends, Cheyenne and Riley, were engaged in not-so-subtle sex themselves. Both sets of friends right under our noses.
Who could blame us? No one was ever the wiser.
Until last night, we hadn’t spoken or seen each other since that night two weeks ago.
The rehearsal dinner.
I began fidgeting under his intense scrutiny the moment we arrived. I bit my bottom lip between my teeth a dozen times to keep from being obvious. But it wasn’t easy. Parker lit a fire in me I never knew existed. He was tall with broad shoulders and thick, dark chocolate hair that begged me to run my fingers through it. When he smiled, it reached from ear to ear, bringing out a dimple on both cheeks.
After the rehearsal dinner, we fucked in the back seat of his limo, heedless of the driver in the front seat.
What the hell was wrong with me?
I’d never had sex this good. And worse, I probably never would again.
I was perfectly willing to keep the liaison going as long as we were both on the same page.
Was I interested in submitting to him and his lifestyle?
Fuck no.
If he wanted to fuck me in a closet until my brain rattled, I was game. Bring it on.
Parker pulled out slowly and removed the condom, wrapping it in a tissue. “You’re so loud.”
I smiled and shrugged while I hopped down from the perfectly positioned narrow counter and reached for my panties on the ground. “You managed to muffle me okay.”
“You think anyone missed us?”
I tugged my dress over my hips, grateful Amy had chosen black, fitted evening gowns for her formal wedding. The silky material fell back into place around my legs, reaching my ankles. The long slit up the side had totally worked in my favor. Parker had ogled my bare leg at least a dozen times during the wedding, pictures, and dinner. And he flipped on the light and did so again now.
I squinted at the brightness while adjusting the bodice around my boobs. They weren’t the largest set, but they were ample for my narrow frame, and I had to admit they looked incredible in this dress. Thin straps over my shoulders held the dress up, but the low V and the way the silk gathered under my breasts made them seem quite prominent.
Parker’s gaze skated up from my exposed leg to my chest. “Woman…” He reached between my breasts, pinched the fabric of my dress and bra with two fingers, and pulled both layers down until my nipple popped free.
“Parker…” My voice was breathy. How could he make me so horny again after two fantastic orgasms? My nipple puckered.
He lowered his head and sucked the sensitive tip into his mouth.
Hard.
I rose onto my tiptoes and grabbed his waist. He needed to stop this madness, or we really would be missed. As it was, we were safe. We’d only been gone a few minutes, and the reception was now well underway with the lights dim and the dancing in full swing.
He lifted his gaze to meet mine. “Submit to me,” he murmured again.
I smiled broader, fighting the effect he had on me. My nipple stood at attention, the cool air of the room wafting over the tip to tease me. “Not in this lifetime.”
He smirked. “I’ll wear you down.”
I lifted my brows. “Don’t count on it.”
