When love is on the line… Texas Lawman, Cain Whitfield, discovers the wary brunette he’s had his eye on is a former mob enforcer’s girlfriend when her cabin goes up in flames and her boyfriend tries to run them both off the road. Now, he’s got to keep her alive and under wraps long enough to arrest him – then he can wipe his hands of her. Even though she knows they’re all wrong for each other, Carina Black can’t help her attraction for the proud lawman. The longer they’re together, the hotter their passion burns…


Review Spring Blog - Copy

What happens when a small town deputy meets a frightened, shy and beautiful girl on the run? You get a tale of protection and intrigue. Cain has been hurt by a woman who played the part of helpless and as such he has become very skeptical of women. Particularly those who look like they need help.

Carina is scared, running from her boyfriend who is the son of a mobster. He doesn’t like to lose and she fled. Not only did she run but she stole money from him to accomplish it.

When Cain first sees her she is in ill fitting clothes in the office of the Prickly Pear Motel. The second time they meet up is when the cabin she has rented goes up in flames. Definitely arson, but is she involved? A wild car ride avoiding a maniacal boyfriend as Cade takes Carina to town has him wondering even more about this shy young woman.

Carina needs  protection and Cain finds himself assigned to do just that. Here’s a favorite scene as they prepare to head to Cade’s home.
Cain stepped to her side. “He might be watching for her to leave the station.”

The sheriff pursed his lips. “Still got those ugly clothes you arrived in?”

Narrowing her gaze, Carina frowned. “Wouldn’t you feel like crap if they were really mine?”

The sheriff arched a brow.

Carina huffed. “I put them in the trash can. “Well, go get ’em.” The sheriff looked beyond Carina and the deputy. “Hey, Rita.”

“Ooh-wee! Do I get to be bait?” the older woman said with more than a hint of glee in her voice.

He gave her a wink. “You do, ma’am. Perez’ll give you a lift in his squad car to your house. We’ll put a blanket over your head.” He fished in his pocket and brought out keys, which he tossed at the deputy. “That’s for the old Coronado out back. Five minutes after Perez leaves, you head out with the girl.”

I’m not a girl, and I’m right here, Sheriff! Carina knew she’d have a canker sore from the number of times she’d bitten her lip to keep from commenting.

“We’ll keep you safe, Ms. Black,” the sheriff said. Then he turned to the men in the group and indicated that they follow him. They strode past her and headed down the hallway. A door closed in the distance.

“I’ll go get those clothes.” “No need,” Rita called out. “Have to change in the bathroom, anyway. I’ll fetch ’em from the trash.”

Alone with the deputy, Carina turned and glanced upward. “I’m a lot of trouble.”

“You are.”

She nearly winced at how quickly he agreed.
“Last thing you want is to babysit me. Give me back my money, and I’ll be gone.”

“Can’t do that, ma’am.” Ma’am. She couldn’t recall anyone but a high school kid at a gas station ever calling her ma’am. She liked the way it sounded in his smooth baritone. She thought she might like to hear him say more words. Ones not spit like bullets. She glanced away. “I won’t cause you any more trouble.”

“Can’t help you were born that way.”

Carina narrowed her eyes as she returned his steady stare, not sure whether he’d insulted her or was cracking a joke. Hell, she wasn’t sure which made her hotter.
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 10277-10296).Kindle Edition.

A fun read as we watch Cade try to ignore his attraction to Carina. A tense investigation with no leads as to where her mobster ex might be. With lots of steamy sex to add to the fun.

Release Day Review and Giveaway: Paige’s Warriors by Ann Mayburn


Can Tren and Rell work together and overcome Paige’s fears in an effort to save all their battered souls?


Paige’s Warriors
Bondmates #3
Ann Mayburn

Synopsis Spring Blog - Copy

After a lifetime of war, Commander Trenzent has left behind the bloody battlefields of the Bel’Tan galaxy and traveled to Earth in the hopes of finding his bondmate. He can only pray that the one woman in the universe who can save his battered soul can look past his scarred exterior to the man within. Unfortunately for Tren, his potential bride is terrified of men thanks to years of abuse at the hands of her father and won’t be easy to seduce.

Paige Grant is pretty sure she’s losing her mind obsessing about a man who doesn’t exist. Ever since the night a wormhole opened up next to Jupiter she’s had these intense dreams about a terrifying, damaged man who awakens a passion inside of her she never knew existed. Despite his grim exterior, he makes her feel safe, something she desperately needs in the real world as she fights off the advances of a man who will not take no for an answer.

But Trenzent isn’t the only Kadothian warrior who believes Paige is his bondmate. An old political enemy of Tren’s, Rell Thantos, also believes the sweet and shy young Earth woman holds the missing part of his soul. He will do whatever it takes to win her heart, even if it means becoming bloodbrothers with a man he hates.

The men will have to find a way to get past their anger and work together to protect Paige against an unknown enemy who is determined to keep the women of Earth out of the Bel’Tan Galaxy forever.

WarningThis story is set in the Bel’Tan galaxy where polyamorous relationships are the norm and love in all of its forms is accepted including M/M, M/M/F, M/M/M/F sexual situations. Basically if you don’t like hot dudes kissing hot dudes, this may not be the series for you.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

This installment of the Bondmates series is just as hot as the others. It never fails to amaze me the way the interactions between the human women and Kadothian warriors plays out. I find a great deal of humor in reading the initial reactions of both of them.

This book shows the beginning when the wormhole from the Bel’Tan Galaxy has just opened. We see the chaos it causes on Earth when Roxie (Casey’s sister) is called to active duty and tells her friends Kimber, Dawn and Paige to get home as fast as possible. Casey is renting a house from her uncle where all these magnificent males have taken up residence next door to her. This takes place just before she accepted the bonding with her warriors.

Paige loves fairy tales an escape of sorts having been severely abused by her father. Her initial reaction to Trenzent is a comparison to Beauty and the Beast, which does become a bit of a theme here. Although not even close to said fairy tale as this book is at least a triple x rating. Tren is scarred and he believes Paige is lying when she calls him handsome This is one of the few scenes in this book that don’t have sexual references and one of my favorites.

“I’m not lying.”

“I know females find them unpleasant to look at.”

She frowned up at him, then took her hand off his chest and put it on her hip, secretly unable to believe she was being so brave with this scary stranger. “So you’re saying your scars make you ugly and unworthy of love?”

“I…” He appeared to snap out of his melancholy, and a grin teased his lips that turned him from handsome to panty dropping hot. “No, little one, they do not.”

“Darn right they don’t.” She looked up and noted a few guys watching them closely. “Give me your hand.”

“Pardon me?”

Not waiting for him to act, she took his large hand in her own small one, a shiver of delight rasping through her at the feel of his hot skin. She should have known then what she planned to do was not a good idea, but she hated the thought of this obviously remarkable man feeling bad about himself. It must be hard for him, being surrounded by all these supermodel hot guys with his noticeable injuries. Without giving herself time to think, she slid his hand beneath the hem of her top, shivering at the feeling of his rough skin scraping over her soft belly with its hard lines of healed skin.

“I have scars. Does that mean I’m not worthy of love?”

Her voice came out in a broken whisper, and the man made a low sound of pain. “No, alyah, you are unbelievably worthy.”

She pressed her hand over his. “Then so are you.”
PaigesWarriorseARC (Kindle Locations 666-678). Kindle Edition.

Tren is called away because of Slavers having come to Earth through the wormhole and misses a date with Paige, things also become complicated since Casey has disappeared without a word to anyone.

Now he has to convince Paige to not only kiss him but trust that he had nothing to do with Casey’s disappearance.

This is a fast paced read with lots of really sizzling sex. Even more so when Lord Rell becomes involved as Tren’s blood brother. I really love the world Ann has developed here. The ongoing war with the Hive, the political structure and the future with more bondmates coming from Earth will have you begging for more. I know I can’t wait for the next installment in this series.

Ann Mayburn Ann Mayburn

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she’s weird, and that sarcasm doesn’t translate well via text.

Seeking a fresh start, she moves to Texas, but escaping her demons proves impossible when she’s too terrified to leave her own apartment. A small, accidental fire sparks a coping method she’d never expected, and brings an amazing man to her door.

Firefighter Cade “Sledge” Turner’s idyllic life ended the day his sister was kidnapped. Now he knows firsthand that tragedy can befall anyone, at any time. Meeting Elizabeth on the job was a gift. Cade can envision spending his life with this woman. He understands what she’s been through, is willing to help her heal…though even Cade is unaware of Beth’s new secret obsession.

As Beth takes steps to help herself heal, and Cade attempts to earn her trust and prove his own, they’re both about to be tested—in a way that could see everything they’ve worked for go up in flames.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love meeting the characters in this series, I am loving the Heroes and Heroines. But this one takes us even further. For those of you who have read the SEALs Of Protection Series you will remember Cade’s sister Penelope from Protecting The Future and Beth from Protecting Summer. This is Beth’s story.

Beth suffers from agoraphobia, the fear of leaving the safety of her apartment. While not a total inability for her to leave, there are only certain conditions under which it is possible. When she inadvertently starts a grease fire in her kitchen she calls 911.

Cade Turner is one of the firefighters responding to the call and recognizes her panic attack as another firefighter tries to lead her outside; away from the smoke and to the medics waiting outside. He is the one to help her calm and when his sister Penelope shows up they are both in for a surprise. Penelope met Beth at their therapy group and she often helps Beth by taking her shopping for the things she can’t get online.

Cade is interested in Beth but dismissed those feelings until his sister showed up. Now he is more interested than ever.

One of my favorite scenes is after a shopping trip that is started by Penelope and finished by Cade. An unexpected event happens on the way back to Beth’s apartment and leads to him spending the night. This is the morning after.

He felt her smile and opened his eyes and pulled back. He wanted to see it for himself. Yup, it was small and tentative, but it was there. “Thank you, sweetheart. That’ll keep me going until I can see you again.”

Beth pushed a lock of her hair behind her other ear and he could tell it took some effort, but she said, “I’m looking forward to it.”

Cade leaned down, brushed a quick kiss over her now swollen lips and stepped back. He wanted more, but he was patient. She needed to know that he wasn’t going to rush her into anything she might not be ready for. The last thing he wanted to do was scare her. “I’ll message you later. I have three days on and two days off this week, so I won’t have a lot of free time to see you, but I’ll touch base electronically…all right?”

“Yeah. That sounds good.”

“If you need anything, though, let me know and I’ll take care of it.”

“I’ll be fine.”

“I know you will. Do me a favor?”

“What’s that?”

“Try not to hack into the President’s email until I can get you on the FBI’s payroll, okay? Courting you while you’re in prison would cramp my style.”

Beth laughed, as he’d meant her to. “Can’t promise, but I’ll see what I can do.”

“I’d appreciate that. Have a good day, sweetheart. I’ll be in touch soon.”

“Bye, Cade.”

Susan Stoker. Shelter for Elizabeth (Kindle Locations 921-929).

A complex series of events and a desire for normalcy leads Beth to a compulsion that could cause the end of her and Cade’s relationship.

Cade’s unfailing devotion and love gets tainted by accusations instead of rational discussion.

I know this couldn’t have been easy to write, what with panic attacks described very realistically.  Cade’s patience as he courts Beth, was both humorous and sweet. At least until they hit the sheets, then it became sizzling (pun intended).

I laughed, I cried both happy and sad tears during the journey this book takes us on.  I also loved seeing so many characters from the previous books.

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy


Kyle Yeun didn’t start out bad and he doesn’t intend to end his life while on the wrong side of the law, either. His testimony to his former employer’s environmental misdeeds has earned him a protection detail compliments of the US government. But due to a dark international conspiracy Kyle was unaware of, his former employers have made ending his life a top priority. Realizing he needs more protection than the US Marshals can provide, he turns to Safeguard after seeing the beautiful, deadly Lizzy Scott in action.

One look at Kyle, and sniper Lizzy Scott knows this isn’t going to be an easy protection job. He’s arrogant, irritating and almost irresistible. Instead of being put off by her hardened attitude, Kyle seems to thrive off the challenge. And she’s slowly giving in to his charms.

After narrowly escaping the latest assassination attempt, Lizzy starts taking dangerous risks to keep him safe. But the last thing Kyle wants is another life ruined because of his actions. He found his redemption in Lizzy’s arms and he’ll risk everything to make sure they both make it out alive. As will she, even if it means walking away from him to keep him safe.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love strong women and Isabelle proves herself to be one from the very first pages.

Kyle is in protective custody until he finishes testifying again his former employers. When Isabelle quickly dispenses of some goons sent after him. After doing some research he hires her as personal protection on top of the Marshall and local police already assigned to him.

The attacks on his life and the creative ways Isabelle gets them to safety had me smiling and holding my breath.

As they get to know each other as much as can be expected in the situation they are in, the attraction grows. The excerpt below holds one of my favorite scenes.

I have been to Seattle and I actually stayed in the hotel that provides the goldfish, visited Pikes Place Market and walked many of the streets described. I felt like I was back there as images popped into my brain as I read.

I had already fallen in love with this series and this latest addition just shows it will continue to grab your attention, draw you in and not let you go until the finish.

Excerpt Spring Blog - Copy

She stepped forward inside his guard and put her left foot behind his right. Seeing her coming forward, he instinctively tried to step back and get his guard back up. Nope.

She caught his ankle in an ashi harai, driving him backward and down toward where he expected his foot to be bracing his back-step. Tall as he was, he relied on his solid stance to keep his footing too much.

Instead, she threw her right arm up between the two of them and quickly swung it around in an exterior loop to place his still-retracting arm into an under armpit lock. He lost his balance and toppled, taking her with him. Which was fine.She landed heavily on top of him, forcing grunts out of the both of them. Somehow, she wasn’t even going to mind the bruises. This was more fun than she’d had in a while.

“Minx.” He was breathless now and still a little stunned.

The clothes around her throat tightened as his left hand took hold, and he pivoted his hips under her. Throwing his left leg up, she found herself in the beginning of a triangle hold.


She got her feet under her and heaved herself—and him—up until she was half-standing and slammed him back on the ground. He loosened his hold. Pivoting to her right, she released his right arm so she could get into position to secure an arm bar on his left.

Before she could manage it, he rotated on top of her. “No you don’t.”

She half snarled, half giggled. “Yes, I do.”

And she blocked his right knee with her leg, raising her hips, placing the ball of her right foot on the ground near his other knee and pushing with her right. As he came off the floor, she pulled him to the left to continue the momentum of the roll…

…and landed on top of him.

He chuckled and repeated the move right back on her, rolling them even farther until they both hit the wall, laughing.

She buried her fingers into his hair and his hands gripped the back of her neck.
They met in a kiss, hard and hot and so incredibly good. If she’d been breathing hard before, she lost everything in that kiss.

Suddenly, she didn’t care about anything but his body against hers. He wasn’t her client anymore and she wasn’t on contract. This was between them, person to person. They were safe enough for an indulgence, here and now, later they might not be. They twisted and rolled, and he was under her again as she straddled him. His hands roamed over her as she had her way with his mouth.

She let him up for air for a second as she decided whether she wanted to lick his pulse or nip at his collarbone.
Kyle’s voice rolled over her, husky and dark, sending delicious shivers down her spine. “Let’s get rid of the pants.”

Arc Review: The Last Installment of Dante’s Circle – Prowled Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan

Coming May 10th


Prowled Darkness

Dante’s Circle Book 7

Carrie Ann Ryan


Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

Eliana Sawyer’s life was rocked from its foundation twice in as many years. She risked her heart and had it shattered into a thousand pieces when Malik left her with no warning. While she’d normally raise her chin and ignore the pain, she can’t forget what he gave her before he disappeared from her life.

Malik Ward is a prince amongst the lion shifters and knows that one day he will have to take a mate. Only, his people can never mate with humans. Under the mistaken impression that Eliana was only human, he forced himself to leave before they’d crossed a line and he broke his vow to his people. Now that he knows the truth about Eliana, however, it will take more than groveling to win back the one woman fated to be his.

While Eliana and Malik embark on a new sensuous path that might lead to disaster, the realms aren’t ready to allow the final lightning-struck human to be enveloped into their fold. The couple will have to combat those plotting against them, as well as the broken promises and heated emotions they share.

Warning: Contains a Leo with a bite that’s worse than his roar, a woman with one last chance at the life she’s always dreamt of, a flame that could extinguish with the wrong sacrifice, and the final journey in the bestselling Dante’s Circle series

Review Spring Blog - Copy

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

I love the Dante’s Circle series and while I am sorry to see it end there were only the seven of them that were lightening struck.

In An Immortals Song we saw Eliana be rejected by Malik before she was able to tell him she was pregnant. Now we get to see the whole story. As the book opens Eliana is out with all of the lightening struck and their mates. Very pregnant and scared she finds out that Malik isn’t human, like she thought, they all thought. When Malik shows up things get very interesting. This is one of my favorite scenes.

He hadn’t known that the one woman he’d thought he could love— the one woman, if he let himself believe, he did love— was lightning-struck.

He’d kicked Eliana out of his bed, out of his life, and had shut the door so tightly on that connection that he’d missed out on what could have been his future.

Holy. Hell. Eliana was pregnant. With his child. His cub.

His mouth went dry and his brain fogged, much like it had when he’d first heard about what Eliana could be.

He hadn’t known she was pregnant when he left. Hadn’t known when he found out that Eliana could be his. He hadn’t known until he’d walked in and almost fell to his knees. There was no doubt this was his child. Not with the timing or the way the others— and Eliana— glared at him as though he were the worst kind of person. He couldn’t blame them, but he couldn’t care about their opinions yet either.

Not until he spoke to Eliana and figured out what the hell they were going to do.

“You have a hell of a lot of nerve showing up here,” a woman with dark hair and blunt bangs said. She stood up, and Malik scented pixie on her.

Well, that made sense since pixies were some of the most cutthroat paranormals out there.

“Faith, sit down,” Eliana said, her voice strong. A hell of a lot stronger than he felt right then.

“You can’t expect me to sit down while this asshole shows up after being missing for months.” Faith waved her hand at him, and if she’d been in her full pixie form, he had a feeling her wings would have been red with anger right then.

The numerous others at the table began to speak at once. Even the babies cried or babbled in that baby language Malik had never been able to understand. His pulse pounded at his temple but he only had eyes for Eliana. He needed to speak to her, needed to explain, needed to find a way to breathe because he couldn’t quite get enough air.

“Eliana,” he whispered.

Eliana pressed her lips together and put her hands over her stomach, over their baby. He hadn’t been here, didn’t know until it was almost too late about the pregnancy, but the fact that she was carrying his cub changed everything.

The others became louder, even standing up to walk toward him. He stayed frozen to his spot, afraid to move closer and lose Eliana forever. Though, really, did he have her at all? He’d fucked up but it wasn’t his fault. He’d done what he had to do with the evidence he’d held at the time.

“Stop it,” Eliana said softly, though her voice was firm. “All of you. Sit down and take care of your babies. I need to speak with Malik. Alone.”

She made a move to stand up, and he took a step toward her, needing to help, but stopped as a tall and slender man made it to her first. The other man glared over his shoulder at Malik as he put his hands on Eliana’s arms.

“Thank you, Seth,” Eliana whispered.

Seth. This was Tristan’s mate, or at least one of them. That meant Malik didn’t have to rip the man’s arms off for daring to touch Eliana. He tried to keep his temper in check, fisting his hands at his sides and breathing through his nose. He had no right to feel this way, no right to fuck everything up once more. But it seemed the predator in him was ready to claim the woman in front of him. Hell, he’d been ready when he’d thought Eliana was human.

As lions couldn’t mate with humans, he’d walked away.

Hopefully, Eliana would listen to him, would forgive him.

But he wouldn’t grovel. He would one day be Leo and a Leo didn’t beg.

No matter what might be needed.

“Eliana, let us go with you at least,” Faith said.

“Let them be alone,” Tristan put in, his eyes on Malik. This was his friend, or at least had been at one time. They weren’t brothers, weren’t warriors together, but they had once been closer than they were now. Endless time and responsibilities had separated them, but at least the man stood for him now. “For now,” Tristan added, his eyes narrowing. “They should speak alone for now as they need to get the facts straight. But know this, Malik, if you hurt her again, you won’t just have a pixie on your heels but also the rest of us.”

“And we won’t hold back for long,” the large dragon said from the side.
Of course, Eliana was friends with a dragon. Why wouldn’t she be?

Malik had never been so wrong in his life, and now he had to make sure he didn’t lose her again. Because if he messed up, he had a feeling it would be the women at the table tearing him limb from limb, not the dragon or the fae in front of him.

Eliana pushed Seth’s hands away and picked up her bag. “Let’s talk then, Malik,” she snapped. Fire slid into her eyes and he wanted to take a step back. He’d seen lionesses in a rage before, but he had a feeling they had nothing on a pregnant Eliana right then.

She moved past him, keeping her distance, and he let out a breath before following her. He didn’t miss the glares sent his way, or the fact that the bear shifter at the table was casually sharpening his claws even in human form.

Dear goddess, this crew fought for their own like no other.
Carrie Ann Ryan. Prowled Darkness (Kindle Locations 303-350).

Malik has some explaining to do and I think some groveling would be in order no matter what he thinks. I absolutely love the way everyone stood with Eliana.

We find out why Malik left and of course we find out what Eliana becomes.

None of these matings have been easy and this one is no exception. A lively and tempestuous story. One that will have you laughing, crying, panting and more.

A perfect ending to a wonderful series! Thank you for the journey Carrie Ann.

Carrie Ann Ryan Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her.
When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born. Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
