It was just fun & games… until it got serious.
There are reasons you’re not meant to fall in love with your best friend. The big one would be watching as he introduces you to a skinny blonde. A week away to drown my misery—with lots of wine—seemed like a good idea. Well, that was until my infatuation showed up. That one steamy encounter changed everything.
There’s a reason you’re not meant to sleep with your best friend. Because once you do, nothing will ever be the same again.

Summer About the Author

Susan Child    Susan Child

When Susan was in high school, she never really liked to read, but when she was a child she did. Go figure. It wasn’t until after she graduated that she caught the reading bug. Susan had to go to a book store to sell off her text books and a particular book caught her eye. This book stood out from the other second-hand books because it had a pink cover. It was only a couple of dollars, so she thought, “Why not?” But she couldn’t quite bring herself to read her bargain book. It had a pink cover! Then, after it tormented her for three weeks, she finally picked it up and… could not put it down. Susan finished it in two days! After Google-ing the author and found that she’d written a heap of books for Harlequin Mills & Boon as well as Single Titles. So of course Susan had to buy all her other books! And when she realised that there were other Mills & Boon authors out there, she just had to search out their books, too. And she loved them! Susan got a ton of inspiration from those books. But the most important thing she realized was that she wanted to write those books, too. She wanted to be a Paranormal author! Because let’s face it, who doesn’t like things that go bump in the night?

Healer’s Fate
Paranormals of Arilase Book 1
by
Beth Caudill

SummerSm Review

As I started reading this one, I felt sorry for Corliss until Liam the Alpha’s son stepped up and mated her instead of the jerk Raymond. The consequences of this mating are many. I enjoyed watching the mating bond grow. Corliss was a surprise too as she figures out how to be the future Alpha’s mate. Evil Sorcerer, jealous alpha females and power hungry alpha males combine to make this an addictive read.

Suspenseful and Steamy, has me adding the series to my wishlist.

A Many Lives Story
by
Laxmi Hariharan

SummerSm Review

A new world risen from a Tsunami, shifters and humans. Humans in the city and shifters outside. Maya knew she was different from the rest of the pack. She hadn’t shifted like others her age. Then in anger she confronted her Mother, the Alpha of their pack. The truth she found leads her on a journey, one she isn’t sure she wants but knows she needs.

Into the city where she finds, not all is as it seems. The realization of who she is and who she needs to be is personal and heartfelt.

A surprising and heartbreaking story.

Night Falls
by
Nicole Morgan

SummerSm Review

Paul is the Alpha of the Racinitine’s half wolf, half human they interact within human laws. Now two hikers have been killed, it looks like they may have been attacked by an animal. The question is could it be one of his pack or is it the Amorkan pack thought to be a folk lore, a ghost story told to young shifters.

Kinzey is a fledgling reporter, trying to make her way up the chain via the local Gazette. She meets Paul after the initial press conference by the Sheriff, Paul is attracted but he can’t get involved with a human, it goes against pack law. After another body is found, Kinzey starts investigating the area surrounding the murders alone.

There is a lot at stake here for Paul’s pack and he and Kinzey have spent an explosive night together. Lots of intrigue, and no resolution to the murders. Fast paced and I am dying for more.

Reluctant Revenge
Under the Demon’s Skin
by
Xandra James

SummerSm Review

Nash wasn’t happy about being assigned to protect Sienna. He had vowed to kill her for acts committed by her father. Revenge for taking the life of an innocent. It would be so much easier to hate her.Sienna had no idea what was going on. She was on a date, her date disappeared, then she was running from a madman with a gun. Ending up with a man who seemed not to want her with him but was protecting her. That is until he scared her.

Nash knew had had pushed too far when she ran from him, little did he know that was about to change their lives.

I have to say staying out of trouble and safe was not something Sienna was adept at. Not when it meant Nash was taking her home to her father. I felt sorry for her and angry with her family for all the secrets they kept from her. Secrets that would change her life in ways she could not have imagined.

Lots of surprises, extremely hot scenes and fast paced. With an interesting take on vampires, demons and angels. Although I don’t read a lot of books like this it captured and held my imagination and attention.

A Tiger’s Claim

Ashwood Falls Book 1

by
Lia Davis

SummerSm Review

Shay was angry at her father Keegan once again. Arguing over her having some independence had her running. This time though she ran too far from Ashwood Falls and didn’t even realize it.

Travis was following his theory on the way the onyx pack was moving. He was finding a pattern when he heard her screams. Stuck between human and wolf, the mutants killed anything in their path. He had to save the woman who was now unconscious.

Finding his true mate while she was in her first heat was both a surprise and a blessing. Perhaps he could find some peace from his tormented memories. That is if the dominant white tiger accepts him.

We learn much about Ashwood Falls, it’s history and also the history of Travis’ lost pack. We see him with his mother and daughter as they blend into their pack adding new talents and strengths. Many adjustments to a new role both as a tracker and as a mate.

Lots of hold your breath moments and steamy sex. A strong beginning for this new series. One I love a lot.

The Beta’s Mate
by
Bethany Shaw

SummerSm Review

Nina thinks she is looking forward to Logan signing the divorce papers. Convinced he has been cheating on her, with his many disappearances sometimes for days, Nina left him. Unfortunately before the papers can be signed she has to tell him she is pregnant. Once the child is born the divorce can be finalized after paternity and visitation rights are determined.

Logan is his pack’s Beta, second in command under his brother the Alpha. The many times he has tried to make things work with his wife always seem to end with a pack crisis. Since Nina is human he can’t divulge the fact he is a wolf.

This story twists and turns as a threatening pack war bleeds into Nina and Logan’s relationship. As her pregnancy becomes known so does the way the pack treats her. Confused and still in love with Logan she knows she has to make decisions.

I love shifters and how they get so tense and confused when trying to explain to human mates. I look forward to more of this pack. I think they should be able to tell their human mates the truth though. This was so hard on this couple.

Tiger Time
Alaskan Tiger Series Book 1
by
Marissa Dobson

SummerSm Review

Tabitha was a foster child, she aged out of the system and moved into a small studio apartment across from her best friend Alice. A friend with a penchant for bad boy type boyfriends.

She receives a cryptic message from someone named Ty who says he was a friend of her father’s and wants to talk to her about him. Uncertain as to whether or not to meet with him, her plans change dramatically when Alice arrives at her door beaten and bleeding after telling her boyfriend she is pregnant.

Still running a fever and feeling so tired but unable to sleep she accompanies Alice to the hospital, not leaving until the nurse assures her that all will be well and Alice will need her support more the next day.

Ty was concerned when Tabitha didn’t show to meet him and even more so when he arrived at her empty apartment to find blood on the floor.

Ty has a lot of things to explain to Tabitha not the least of which she is in the process of shifting to a tiger, the last of her line.

This story has a lot of tangles that all lead to one shifter, one who was made not born. As the story unfolds Tabitha not only has to accept she will be a tiger but Ty is her mate. All surrounded by the drama of attempted murder, treason and more.

I will definitely be following this Series.

Wounds to Bear
Heart of The Bear Book One
by
Lily Marie

SummerSm Review

Jenna has come to Pine Heart as their new vet, she is aware there are shifters here and was only a little surprised when one arrives wounded only a few minutes after she has set up her office.

What she didn’t expect was the instant attraction to him and he to her.

Roman’s past has come back to haunt him in a big way, and he knows he shouldn’t be thinking of the new vet as a romantic interest. Not when children both human and shifter are in danger.

A fast paced, gripping tale of love, revenge and forevers. This is another series I will be following.

Hannah

All my life, I’ve only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I’ve tried to please them. I’m starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I’ve scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention—and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they’re probably illegal. I can only pray I don’t scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am.

Leo

There are very few people in this world I’ve ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn’t know it but I’ve been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there’s no way she’ll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust…a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah’s absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn’t hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don’t feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She’s mine, only mine, and I’m keeping her forever.

Warning:

This story features a rough and demanding Dom who’s completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.

Summer My Review

Right off the bat, THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR EVERYONE! This is a note from Ann at the beginning of the book. She means every single word!
Dear Beloved Reader,
If you’ve read my work before you already know that I’m a filthy, dirty bitch in the bedroom and you’re ready for the ensuing sexy times. For my first time readers, please be aware that my sex scenes do not fade to black, and my characters are not big into missionary under the sheets with the lights off for procreation while thinking of England sex. That said, Leo is a kinky, kinky bastard and even though he’s into Daddy/princess play, in no way-shape-or form does it ever become pedophile/incest role playing.
Instead, the ‘Daddy Dom’ dynamic is one of love and trust, where the Dom enjoys caring completely for his baby girl, helping her grow into a stronger person, making her happy, while giving her the discipline she both needs and desires. This is a consensual relationship between two adults, and in my opinion, Daddy/princess play is a very loving form of BDSM that is caring and full of lots of open affection. Like everything else in life it means different things to different people so what I may find kinky you may find vanilla, and vice versa.
So, get your seatbelt on and your vibrator handy, ’cause you’re in for a heck of a ride.
Ann

Ann Mayburn. ObsessionFinal (Kindle Locations 16-26). Honey Mountain Publishing. Kindle Edition.That said, I loved this book. Once I was able to get my head into the point of view of a cartel family it flowed correctly in my mind. Leo’s heart is in the right place, twisted though it is. Hannah in her own way is almost as bad, with her clingy and stalker tendencies. So it really is a match made in, umm, heaven?The picture painted is that of a loving family with a problem of trust. The opening is going to be hard for some readers to grasp, but reminding yourself this is a cartel family helps it make sense. Leo’s brother’s greedy, selfish, ex wife had her own child kidnapped. The result is not pleasant for anyone.

Leo’s mother wants to find a way to be sure that any woman her sons get involved with will never betray them, and be loving spouses and mothers.

Twisted yes, but Leo does it right. The Daddy Dom in him is perfect for Hannah. She needs love, care and trust. Leo gives her that and more.

Extremely hot sex scenes with BDSM play. Keep yourself hydrated while reading. Ann is superb at writing these. This is a dark romance and one that is definitely worth reading.

Summer Exerpt

As I scanned the dance floor, I was surprised by how many couples were dancing so close you couldn’t slip a feather between them. The sexual energy was thick, and I squeezed my legs when a pulse of blood rushed between them. My nipples tingled and I shifted on the couch, tugging my skirt again to make sure I wasn’t flashing anyone.“Hannah,” Joy said as she elbowed me in the ribs. “That guy is totally checking you out.”

“What guy?”

“That scary-looking one with the sexy hair and psycho eyes.”

“Who?”

“Heavy brow, broad forehead, square jaw, and hair that Thor would be envious over.”

I followed the direction of Joy’s pink-painted fingernail and it didn’t take me long to figure out who she was talking about.

I’d always inwardly snorted when I’d read the description of a woman being struck dumb by the sight of a man, but I wasn’t anymore—’cause I could barely breathe.

He was fascinating, and I found myself unable to look away.

Dressed in a pair of faded jeans that fit his athletic figure like a glove, his body was bigger and stronger than that of any other man around us, including the bouncers. As best I could tell in the club lighting, he had long, thick golden-brown hair that fell to his broad shoulders in messy waves, framing an unusual face that was roughly masculine, all carved cheekbones and thick jaw. Not a pretty boy by any means, or even a boy at all. No, this guy was one hundred percent confident man. His chest appeared impossibly broad and his torso tapered down to a trim waist. Everything about him seemed to reek of health and vitality.

While my gaze wandered his body, my attention was drawn to his solid right wrist, which had a black leather band wrapped around it. I found the sight of that black band incredibly sexy and wondered when the hell I’d developed a fetish for men’s wrists. My breasts grew heavy and this odd…carnal urge began to burn in my belly

The air around me thickened as our gazes met and he strode through the crowd to our table, drawing people’s attention like a magnet. He wasn’t conventionally attractive, his features too heavy, the lines going across his broad forehead too thick, and his nose broken too many times, but he was charismatic in a way I’ve never experienced. I couldn’t blame the crowd for turning to watch him as he stalked towards us. He prowled like a beast and his intense, direct stare turned me on even as his approach made me increasingly nervous.

“Bet he’s got a really thick dick,” Kayla whispered as we all silently watched him.

By the time he reached our couch, we were full-on staring at him, but it was Kayla who spoke first with a flirty little, “Hi.”

Ignoring her, he held out his hand to me and commanded in a deep voice, “Dance with me.”

It wasn’t a request, it was an order, and I felt a sense of almost relief that I didn’t have to worry about making the decision of saying yes or no. How odd. I must be drunker than I thought because I wasn’t alarmed by his domineering manner in the least. Instead, a fuzzy warmth tingled through my body as he kept all of his attention solely on me, despite Kayla’s obvious pouting at being ignored.

After a quick glance at my friends—Joy was staring at him as if he was Channing Tatum doing a full strip tease in front of us—I placed my hand in his, and then tried to jerk away as an electrical charge zapped between us.

The mysterious man gently led me out of the seating area with his hand resting lightly on my lower back, his good manners a direct contrast to his rough image.

Alcohol obliterates the filter between my mind and my mouth so I found myself blurting out, “Why do you want to dance with me?”

He drew me closer, then dipped his face down to nuzzle my ear as he said, “Because you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. What’s your name?”

I desperately wanted to believe him, but a lifetime of being told I wasn’t good enough reared its ugly head and twisted his words inside of my mind, making me hear them as a mocking insult.

“My name’s Hannah, but you don’t have to give me a line. Why did you really ask me?”

He jerked back and looked down at me with a curious expression. “You don’t believe me?”

Anger, mixed with a disconcerting desire, had me tugging away from him. “I don’t want to dance with you anymore.”

When I tried to let go of his hand, his gaze cleared and, for the first time, I felt like he looked at me, really looked at me—then he gave me an utterly charming smile that flooded my panties with desire.

“I guarantee you do.”

Holy hell, I think a small climax fluttered through my clenching sex.

Examining him closer, I was once again reminded that he was a solid man with a presence as big as his frame, drowning me in his heat. When he placed his hand gently beneath my chin and forced me to meet his gaze, I couldn’t find the strength to resist his unspoken control. We studied each other for a moment in the flashing lights of the club, desire curling low in my belly as I drank in his harsh good looks. This was a confident, powerful, intimidating man. The exact opposite of my usual type of guy. I liked smart, quiet, and nerdy. Or at least I used to. My throbbing clit assured me that my tastes in men had changed.

Big time.

Now, mature, dangerous, and built like a professional wrestler seemed to be my preference.

In a way, he did actually remind me of a professional wrestler my cousin used to watch, Triple H. Same heavy brow and deep-set eyes, along with a good dose of menace. The man holding my face as gently as could be was the kind of men others feared, but not me. I had the strangest sense that he’d protect me, if I let him.

He raised my hand to his lips and gently brushed them over my skin, then, when his tongue flicked out to taste me, my nipples became so hard they ached. “One dance. Let me show you how good things will be between us.”

“Will be?” I rolled my eyes even as my panties were wet with desire and my pulse throbbed with growing need. “You sound awfully sure about that.”

“Baby girl, one thing I can promise you is that I’ve never been as sure about anything in my life. Enough talking, I’ve waited what seems like an eternity for this moment. I need to touch you.”

A tremble of need raced through me and the thought and the thought of rubbing my drunk and horny body against his seemed to be the best idea I’d had in ages.

Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive cover

Alexander’s Cherished Submissive
7 years ago

From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.

Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.

Warning:
There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight.

Author’s Note:
This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today.

Exquisite Trouble
Before I met Smoke I’d never been kissed, really kissed, by a man, let alone a biker sex god bent on taking my virginity and my heart. I got dragged into the deadly world of the Iron Horse MC by my crazy twin sister who is engaged to the club’s President and even crazier mom who only cares about herself. Smoke has been assigned by the club to keep me safe even though he’s everything that I should be afraid of.  He’s the kind of man who lives by his own rules and does whatever he wants whenever he wants, but he treats me like I’m something rare and precious, not a socially dysfunctional basket case who has no idea how to love, but needs him more than her next breath.  Not that my feelings matter, because if we don’t find my mother soon, the only thing I’ll have to be worried about is who is going to kill me first.
Note-
This is Part One of Two for Smoke and Swan’s story. The second book, Exquisite Danger, is out now and is the conclusion of Smoke and Swan’s story within the Iron Horse MC series.

Summer About the Author

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.

Longtime submissive, Patch Williams, never quite finds the release she seeks. When a new Dom comes to town, offering play she’s never tried before, it’s a battle to give into the pleasure he offers while keeping her wolf nature a secret.

Home from overseas service, Kennedy Laurie realizes a few things about himself—he only gets off when a little sadism is involved, and he’s terrified of going too far, getting lost in the play. Patch might be just the submissive he’s been dreaming of.

Patch recognizes the call to mate…but with an out-of-towner? Her body demands for her to submit, to tell him everything, but can her Dom tame the Wolf on a Leash?

Summer My Review

Patch is a submissive wolf who has being slipping through as many loopholes as she can without being in direct defiance of Drew and Ryker. While Ryker hasn’t told her not to go to the BDSM club, he hasn’t said she could either. She goes to the Club when she needs release from all the pressures around her and tonight is the night. Gee has a bad feeling and shows up warning her not to go.

Of course not being ordered by her Alpha means she will indeed go. So in her wolf mask and club clothes off she goes.

Kennedy is part owner of the club with his best friend Ogre. Now discharged from the military after his last deployment, he has no interest in playing. With his PTSD he is afraid he might get too lost in a scene and things would get out of hand. Then he meets Lupine (Patch’s moniker for the club) and feels an attraction he has never felt before. Here is a favorite scene where they meet.

“I’m sorry. I—” He cleared his throat. “Minotaur. You are?” No collar marred the delicate line of her throat, meaning she wasn’t owned.

He wasn’t sure why he cared, since he’d not come to play, but she wasn’t collared and it thrilled him.

Her lips turned up in a smile, almost as if she had a bit of a secret. His body reacted, an almost audible click inside him, and he lusted her at merely that slow Cheshire movement of her bright red lips. “Lupine. When I’m here, I’m Lupine.” The sound of her voice stroked him, despite the distance between them, and he suddenly hoped he’d get to touch the body that went with the voice.

“Wolfish, a reflection of your mask. Nice. Beautiful flower choice.” You’re beautiful. He didn’t say the words, though, shocked at his own turn of thought. He wasn’t the kind of man who felt the need for flattery or romantic notions, preferring his play rough and wild.

“I thought it was apt. So, Minotaur, we’ve never met before, and I’ve been coming here for years….” She left it at that, the question in her statement obvious, if unspoken. Who are you, and why are you in my club? Meaning she told the truth and was comfortable with her position in their society— something he and Ogre intended with the select membership and close nature of the members of their group.

“I’ve been out of town.” He might not have been at the club in years, but he remembered the rules. Nothing personal, nothing to disrupt the play with the uncomfortable realities of the outside world. They chose the location, the membership— all of it, really— with the intent of making a safe, private, and exclusive place where almost anything could happen.
Part of him longed to tell this girl more, though. To curl up beside her and tell her whatever she wished to hear, so long as she kept talking to him. The sheer strangeness of his response left him hesitant, and he took a step back, creating more space between them.

She stood, apparently not noticing his need for distance. As she moved toward him, he stiffened. However, she stopped little more than a foot away. Not crowding him, but still closer than he preferred her to come. “Nice to meet you.” Her small offered hand only proved she was close enough to touch. Close enough to taste. Close enough to smell.

The ripe scent of her— something musky and floral and female all in one sweet breath— stiffened his body further. He desired the little wolf, more than he’d craved another woman in longer than he cared to remember.

Which meant he was dangerous to her. Some of the things he’d imagined in dreams…. He pinched his eyes closed, almost as if he could escape the dark twisting paths of his own mind. Instead of answering, he turned away from her, heading to the door.

Her hand on his arm ground him to a halt, and he breathed through his mouth to resist smelling the mesmerizing blend of her aroma. “Wait, I’m sorry. I was being too forward. I’m sorry….”

She tapered off, running out of words and withdrawing her hand.

“You have a master?” The lack of collar spoke volumes, but he needed to be certain.

“No. I play, sure, but, well, I’m not anyone’s property or anything, if that is what you’re asking. I only take part in scenes, or, well….”
“Would you be interested in negotiating play, little wolf?” Even as he damned himself for making the offer, part of him surged up, ready to take her— right then if he could.

She froze at his words, looking startled. Quickly regaining her composure, however, she nodded. As she licked her full lips, further hardening his already rock-hard cock with the tempting peek of pink, she considered his body before she answered. “I would, yes.

Now when a dominant finds his/her mate they can usually formulate a reasonable plan for making this fact known. But Patch is a submissive both in human form and wolf. This man she believes is her mate, while human is a Dom. So dominant in fact that he fullfills her every dream of a Dom. But how does she stand up to her Alpha and Enforcer in wanting a human and how does she divulge that she is a wolf to the man of her dreams.

A very hot, sexy read. One I couldn’t put down and one that showed how powerful a submissive really is.

Summer About the Author

Virginia Nelson Virginia Nelson

Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself.

When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects.

Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue.

Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.

Bringing Down Romeo
Black Hills Wolves #53

Summer Blurb

Hide your girlfriends, hide your daughters.

Tad Dawson, confirmed bachelor and runway model, has come back to the Black Hills for his brother’s wedding. Also known as Romeo for his love them and leave them attitude, Tad has a reputation to lose and a woman to win. However, he won’t be able to do it on his own, since the woman he wants would rather assault him with nail guns, power saws and rocks. Not what he expected when he turned on the charm.

Megan could use a good dose of anger management, along with a shot from Cupid’s bow, and lord knows she has a lot to be mad about when it comes to Romeo. Tad left her five years before after she declared they were mates. Not only did she have to deal with a crazy Alpha, who got off on tossing her to the wolves, she’s heard rumors Tad’s appetite for anything with a skirt has grown since he left. Not that she could confirm it. He’s hasn’t called or written once.

For Tad to win the love of his life, he’s going to need some help, and the four pack matchmakers have decided they are just the Wolves to assist, whether he wants their help or not. No tactic is too dirty or underhanded. Bringing down Romeo is going to take every trick in their match-maker’s bag.

Bagging the girl, well, that could be a bit trickier.

Will the four matchmakers beat the nearly impossible odds, or will their tactics unravel at the seams?

Before the wedding is over, someone is going down, and if the matrons have any say, it’s going to be hard.

Summer My Review

Well the matrons are at it again, but this time it’s a little different.Tad aka Romeo left the Black Hills when Magnum was threatening to have him fixed because of his sleeping around with the she wolves. On the day he left Magnum had decided on a mate for Megan, she was only eighteen and had run to avoid the mating. Now she had to accept her fate or her family and friends would pay. She knew even then Tad was her mate, she had wanted a kiss from him so he would know too. It didn’t happen.

Now five years later he is back for his brother’s wedding, to a human no less. Something unheard of when Magnum was Alpha. He was scared that he would find Megan mated with pups and happy. Instead this was his reception from her.

He headed for the family Hummer he’d borrowed from the business in Hot Springs, since his car wouldn’t make the logging roads in—not without dropping the muffler.

Bang, bang, bang.

Tad turned toward the source of the noise and froze in his tracks. Not three buildings over, a slender woman in jeans and a green tank top held a pneumatic nail gun. She moved around, working on the deck of a partially framed building.

“Meg?”

She stopped and looked up, flipping her dark hair over one shoulder.
Tad changed course and headed for the new construction. “Hey.”

She turned and moved away to another section of the building.

Tad followed her around the side. “Megan? Is that you?”

She spun around, lifted her hand to shield her eyes from the sun, and stared at him. “Dawson?”

“Yeah. Don’t you recognize me, Meg?”

Pthunk, pthunk, pthunk, pthunk. Meg fired a series of nails.
Tad dove out of the way and rolled behind a shed. “Hey! Is that any way to say hello?”

Pthunk, pthunk, pthunk. They struck the side of his hiding place.

“Leave.”

“Whoa, what the hell did I do?” He sniffed. Yeah, that shower he’d skipped out on. Not good. Had she caught a whiff of the women who were hanging on him before he left? Could explain her hostility.

“You really have to ask?”

“Yes.”

“Go. Leave me alone, Tad Dawson. I don’t want you here.”

“You are such a liar, Meg.” He stepped out from behind the shed. “The last time we talked, you wanted me to kiss you, to prove I’m your mate—or has that tidbit slipped your memory?”

She picked up a cordless saw and started toward him. “Oh, I remember quite clearly.”

Tad eyed the shiny blade. “What do you think you’re going to do with that?”

She smiled. “Use your imagination.” She fired it up. The whirling blade screamed.

Tad backed away. “I’ll come back when you cool down.”

“I wouldn’t recommend it.” She glared at him.

Tad stalked to his truck. Why did everyone threaten to take his nuts off? He jumped in and slammed the door, watching the woman on the deck with the evil tool in her hands. She didn’t mean it. Did she?

Megan flipped him the bird.

Good probability. His wolf chuckled.

Who asked you?
Jackson, D.L.. Bringing Down Romeo (Black Hills Wolves #53) (Kindle Locations 303-324). Decadent Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Not exactly the best way to start a relationship. But don’t worry the Matrons have a plan. Besides his brother’s wedding, Tad pursues his mate. I laughed and cried and well I just love weddings.

Royally Deep
Excerpt

Virna DePaul

SummerSm Blurb

A sexy quarterback and an adventurous princess turn some serious sexual tension into the romance of a lifetime.

SummerSm Review

Who doesn’t love a football star and a Princess story? I am a big football fan and have been for most of my life. As such I had some problems with the scoring as described. First there was reference to a one point field goal lead. Field goals are 3 points. As the game is described there were 2 touchdowns for the Knights. If both include good extra point kicks that would be 14 points. A single point lead with that would either be a 2 point conversion on one of the touchdowns instead of the kick for 1, or a safety.

My next issue was the quarterback getting credit for the touchdowns. A Quarterback gets the win and credit for completed passes, not the touchdowns themselves unless the receiver is in the end zone or a quarterback sneak or he runs it in himself.

The Bootleggers won with a score of 23, and had 3 touchdowns. That’s 21 with all the extra point kicks. So either they did two 2 point conversions or they missed the extra point on one and got a field goal to make that score.

You are probably wondering why I bring this up when it’s a romance novel. That’s simple really, it threw me out of the story trying to figure out the logic of the scoring.

Since Bella is a major football fan and Kyle is a first string Quarterback, I would expect the story to reflect accurate information.

As much as I like the concept, it isn’t for me unless things are more accurately depicted.

Shifting Hearts
Wiccan Haus Book 1
By
Dominique Eastwick

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Summer Blurb

The last of his kind…
Rekkus is the last of the great Black Tiger weres, and he’s happy to stay that way. Working as security for the Wiccan Haus, a magical spa for inner healing, he has enough danger to keep him busy. Unfortunately, the Fates are not content with him being comfortable.

Alone and discouraged…
Dana has walked away from everything—her fiancé, family, job, and apartment. A stay at the Wiccan Haus may be the only way she can move on. But what she finds isn’t what she expects, nor is it what she thought she’d been seeking.

If they can open themselves up they might discover that being together can be better than being alone and learn that passion can burn in those who least expect it.
Meet the unusual residents of the Wiccan Haus.

The staff can get a little hairy, and not all of the guests eat what’s served in the dining hall. But the Rowan siblings do what they can to make the resort a place of healing and peace, using all of their years of practice. At the Haus, where humans and paranormals reside side by side, everyone in need of the services are welcome. If some happens to fall in love then all the better.

Welcome to the Wiccan Haus.

Summer My Review

So let me tell you a little story. One of my favorite authors has a release coming out in this series. It’s not her first one for this series, but it’s the first one from her since I started reading her books. As I pre-ordered I realized I should probably read the entire series to appreciate the book more. One thing lead to another in this Facebook conversation and the amazing Dominique Eastwick sent me her book, the first in this series. I read this book in a single sitting because I couldn’t put it down.

Shifting Hearts introduces Wiccan Haus, a healing spa run by four siblings, the Rowans. The spa caters to both paranormal beings and humans and during a stay they can and do interact somewhat.

Rekkus is the Spa’s head of security and bodyguard to the Rowan siblings.

As the story begins Dana and her friend Jessie arrive on the ferry. Dana walked away from her wedding and her family has now disowned her. Here she hopes to rejuvenate and formulate some plan for her future. She has nothing left at home, not even a home to return to.

Rekkus finds a watch on the path from the ferry dock and with the help of Cyrus one of the Rowans. He finds the owner and proceeds to her room to return it. This is a favorite scene.

Arriving at the room at the end of the hall, he knocked gently. If she slept, he would leave the piece of jewelry on the doorknob. About to give up when there was no answer, he started to place the jewelry on the knob when the door cracked a bit to reveal a bleary-eyed, disheveled woman, whose skin had to be the softest he had ever seen and called to him to touch it. His inner animal roared to life, and Rekkus reared back like he’d been hit square in the solar plexus. She seemed small compared to his six foot five frame. And every inch of him wanted to take her curvaceous body hard and fast and make her his.

“Can I help you?” She lifted a hand to stifle a yawn.

Centering himself to control his beast, he focused on the item he held. “Sorry to disturb you, Ms. Stone, but I found your watch on the path coming from the ferry. I wanted to return it to you.”

She stared at it, confused, taking it from him. Her fingers barely grazed his hand, but the contact burned. “Thank you. I don’t know how I could have lost it.”

Unable to say anything after her brief touch, Rekkus nodded in what had to make him appear a complete moron.

For a moment, her dark-chocolate colored eyes met his, and his breath hitched.

“Thank you. My grandmother willed this to me, and it’s very special. I don’t know how I can repay you.”

Fuck me. Focusing on her lips, he wondered if they were as soft as they seemed and how they would feel on his body.

“Excuse me?” Clearly offended at what he’d evidently muttered aloud and not waiting for him to say anything more, she closed the door, leaving him standing and staring at the brass seven room number.

“‘ Fuck me?’” He groaned. “Rekkus, you are a right idiot.”

Not only had he said the words aloud, but had a sneaking suspicion he hadn’t come across that watch by accident. He also suspected it wasn’t simply what it appeared. He couldn’t put his finger on it, but something in the timepiece hummed with magic. And he’d long ago stopped believing in happenstance.

Walking down the hall, he let out a growl loud enough to shake the pictures on the beautifully decorated walls.

Damn the Fates.
Dominique Eastwick. Shifting Hearts (Kindle Locations 232-250). Decadent Publishing.

Realization that Dana is his mate makes him determined to avoid her. Alas the fates will have none of that. Not only does she find him well lets say it gets hotter and hotter from here.
