There’s nothing worse for a writer than missing a deadline. For Griffin Montgomery, his failure to do what he loves comes at a blow. He didn’t understand how it was affecting his life until his well-meaning family intercedes. His sisters have hired him a new personal assistant and he’s outraged—that is, until he sees who it is.

Autumn Minor is light on her feet and a bare memory for most people she meets. She does her best to blend in everywhere she lives, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Making sure no one truly notices her is the only way she’s survived this long. Only when she meets Griffin and the rest of the Montgomery’s, she’s afraid she won’t be able to let go when its time to run.

Though the two begin a tentative but explosive relationship, they know it can’t last forever. Neither of them are made for the long haul when it comes to love and romance. When the demons from Autumn’s past find her and put both their lives at risk, Griffin will stop at nothing to protect her. In the end, though, he’ll be the one who needs a second chance

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.

I love this series and in this book we get a look at everyone and more. By more I mean hints at the books that are coming.

While this is about Griffin and Autumn, we learn a bit more about Jake, Maya’s friend. We are introduced briefly to Holly , Jakes girlfriend and Border Jake’s one time lover/friend? There is more of Sloane’s growly protectiveness of Hailey. Baby announcements, can you guess who? An update on Alex in rehab. News on Dad’s cancer. So much new information that makes me ache for the next book.

The Montgomery’s are known for taking care of their own. When Griffin gets behind on his deadline due to a rather intense case of writer’s block, his Mom, along with his sisters lovingly called the M & M’s (Meghan, Maya and Miranda), step in with a solution. One he is given no choice but to accept.

The beautiful and mysterious Autumn will become his personal assistant.  Hired by the women in his life, he can’t fire her, as he has with others in the past. She will organize everything around him so he can concentrate on the important things, writing.

We met Autumn at the end of Megan and Luc’s book Harder Than Words. An interesting young lady who never gets attached to any one place. Now we will find out why she runs. Will she continue to, now that she has found something she never expected?

I usually put up a passage but this from Griffin’s head really touched me.

He didn’t know why that hurt, but he pushed it aside like he had all the other times words had hurt. Words were far more powerful than most believed. That’s why he wrote them.

From the messy house to organization, this book held me in it’s tight clutches to the very end. Some inventive hot sexy scenes and so much more. Laughing and crying and just plain more please.

I can’t wait for the next in this series.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.

As the tale continues we now know of all the Outsiders. In this one the Outsiders are living in the caves of their ancestors. Marina, who lost her memory in a magical blast six months ago, feels as if she is a kidnap victim. Still no closer to regaining her memory, Drew decides to use tough love and issues a challenge to her in the chamber where their parents failed to capture the demon, leaving her surrounded by evil, to find her way out of the maze.

Since nothing is ever easy, Sebastian attacks with earthquakes and transports Marina to St Croix where Alexa awaits her. Alexa is but a shell of what she might have been, craving blood instead of food, I almost feel sorry for her.

Just as Drew is about to open himself to Sebastian in order to find her, Marina gets it all together, and by all together I mean WOW together. This is part of the conversation, when they are together with Alexa and Sebastian pops in, one of my favorite scenes.

“Sebastian.” Alexa pulled herself out of Marina’s touch. “You have to help me.

You have to tell me what to do.”

“No one has ever told you what to do in more lifetimes than I can count.” Marina spoke only to Alexa and it finally dawned on Drew what was going on. Marina had gotten her powers back and she’d really possessed them this time. Things she’d always been able to do but hadn’t worked out how to tap into yet before she lost her abilities flooded through her. Marina had never once been able to see past lives before. Every other word out of her mouth was about things the rest of them couldn’t know.

That couldn’t be normal.

“Sebastian.” Drew stepped toward the demon and stared right at him so the creature would know Drew did indeed see him. “You have no place here. Be gone with you.”

“No.” Sebastian hissed. “It’s the two of you who have no business being in this world. It belongs to me. Always has, always will. And I’ve taken steps. You’ll never even know it happened. This is my turn. Mine.”

“Oh, for the love of…” Marina snarled and waved her hand in the air. The demon’s eyes got big before he vanished from the room.

Drew cocked his head to the side. “That’s so fucking cool.”

“He was boring me.”

“You made him go poof.”

She grinned, the first real smile she’d bestowed since he arrived. “Yeah, I did.”


Once again lots of stuff going on, We find out about a scribe, the others find out about Gia, Rachel and Zane. Sebastian’s mother shows up. They all end up at a beginning and damn this book is too quick to end.

Waiting impatiently for the next installment of this series.

I did find a few grammatical errors, but they weren’t enough to distract from the excitement. Mostly missing words. An example. She shoved them her pocket hoping Marina didn’t notice.

Five Contented Purrs and an editing hiss for Rebecca!

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it.

I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town.

I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I’ve been told I’m a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

I’d love to hear from you!

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.

The Phoenix (Mel/Nix) has been on the run for more than a century from the demon Levi. He killed her first host in front of Caleb, and then she lost her second host to child birth. Attached to the child she met Amelia. Melanie and Amelia were best friends and when Levi once again found and killed her host, the Phoenix attached herself to Amelia.

She is also running from her mate, Caleb, believing he betrayed her all those years ago. Consciously or unconsciously the Phoenix has been communicating with  Caleb. Her method is through her host Amelia’s dreams, very hot sexy dreams.

Levi has not only sent trackers but also Caleb to find them. Caleb has also figured out that Levi wants all of them, but mostly Mel. The question is why.

This is one of my favorite scenes is a conversation between Mel and Amelia when they run into Caleb.

The same demon from the too-hot-for-words dreams. Heart pounding, she tried to stay calm while the clerk checked her out.

Mel, this is not the time to leave me.

“Um, he’s a hellhound with shapeshifting abilities. He’s also a bounty hunter.

Fuck me. That wasn’t good. Levi sent him, didn’t he? Mel didn’t respond. Mel. What is wrong with you?

“Nothing. Let’s get out of here.

In the year they’d been together, Mel had never lied to her. But that was what the Phoenix just did. Amelia knew it. Or at least Mel was not telling her something, and that was the same thing in Amelia’s book. She bet it had something to do with the erotic dreams.

Gathering her purchases, she darted out the door and Lia Davis ran to her car. They were on the road within moments.

“Spill. What the hell is going on?”

Mel let out a sigh. “That demon is my mate.

Oh, hell no.

“You do realize he is here to either kill us or take us to Levi.”

“There is that.Mel fell silent for a moment. “We could seduce him. With a hellhound on our side, you’d be strong enough to kill Levi and whoever else comes after us.

The Phoenix had gone insane, completely lost it.

“I’m not seducing a demon.”

“We can’t fight him either. Besides, we have been seducing him for the last few months.”

“The dreams?” When the Phoenix didn’t reply, Amelia released a frustrated growl. She already knew the answer. “Damn it, Mel. Why couldn’t your mate be a nice, normal, wealthy human?”

The bird didn’t respond. Whatever. Damn it.

“I’m not on board with this until you explain to me who he is to you.”

Mel blew out a frustrated breath. “I told you, he’s my mate. Now that he has found me…us, he will track us no matter where we go. At least leading him to the farm will be away from human ears and eyes.”

There was a hint of saddens in her tone that made Amelia’s heart ache.

“He broke your heart.”

“More like broke my trust. Although, I’m not sure it was completely his fault.

“I’m so confused.” Amelia gripped the steering wheel tighter. “I’m not seducing him. I’ll talk to him, but I’m not seducing him.”

Now all three of them must come together, as mates, to either win this battle with Levi or die.

A tense battle of wills, hardheaded women and an alpha male with lots of hotness in the form of a sexy demon hellhound changeling.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review
I purchased this book with the other two after reading this series from book four hoping to become less confused over who’s who.

I still find the back and forth between POV is a bit confusing, and several times I had to go back a page or two to figure out who’s head we are in. However, the story is such that I can’t help but continue reading.

Sophie and Chase are at a turning point in their relationship celebrating their engagement, when Jack her “late” fiancé  shows up very much alive. This is quite the shock not only for Sophie but Ana (his sister)as well.

After the initial shock Sophie and Jack talk and then she leaves with Chase. Jack is devastated, Ana is fuming, and Chase is praying.

Everyone has a lot to come to terms with, especially Jack when he realizes Sophie is never leaving Chase for him.

We meet Sophie’s mother in this one, and all I can say is she is a consummate bitch. No mother should ever treat their daughter the way Grace treats Sophie. One of my favorite scenes happens during Christmas dinner, when Chase goes off on Grace.  This is a part of that conversation.

“That’s full of cheese and heavy cream, Sophia Paige,” Grace interjects, wiping the smile off my girls face. “If you’re having pie, you may want to make sure you don’t go overboard. Remember, a moment on your lips, a lifetime on your hips.”
What the fuck is wrong with this woman? “Grace!” Debbie says in shock from across the table.
“What? She wants to get married so badly,” she says in a saccharin sweet tone. “I’m sure she wants to look her best for Prince Charming here. I’m just trying to help!”
“Okay, I’m done,” I start, angry and determined to make my point no matter how childish it might be. Taking the bowl from her hand, I pile a massive portion on Sophie’s plate. Honestly, more than even I could eat, but I can’t stop. When I’ve all but emptied the serving bowl on her plate, I set it down with a thud and face my girl.
“Chase…” she starts, her eyes round from the shock of my reaction, but I can’t hold my tongue anymore.
“Sophie Ryan, I want you to listen to me. I love your hips. I don’t care if you gain five hundred pounds and I have to shove your ass in a wheel barrow and roll you down the aisle. If you don’t eat every single bite of that macaroni and cheese, so help me God I will call off this wedding myself,” I tell her seriously. Taking a bite of my ham, I look at her mother and smirk. “And she’s eating pie, too, Grace. All of it.”

Surprisingly it is not Grace who reveals the big secret but Jack. Thus creating even more anxiety for all of our leading characters.

These characters are very complex and I have come to love each of them. The relationships are totally on fire and the sex is red hot!

Alas, this is another cliffhanger and I am grateful that I can now re-read The Commitment with more knowledge of the character’s relationships.

Alexandr's Reluctant Submissive cover

Fall Tree Blog - sm - Synopsis

Note- this is part TWO of Alex and Jessica’s story. Part ONE, Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive, should be read first for the most enjoyment.


Having believed for five years that his wife and daughter are dead, Alexandr Novikov’s world changes forever when he discovers not only are they alive, but the vile person who tore his family apart was none other than his father, Jorg.Determined to make up for lost time, Alex sets about winning the hearts and trust of his wife and daughter, and healing the emotional damage done to Jessica by their forced separation. Easier said than done when jealousy rears its ugly head, and Jessica struggles to deal with all the women Alex was intimate with after her supposed death.

Jessica has prayed for a chance to reunite with Alex, to be the family they were meant to be, to reclaim and rebuild their relationship. Those prayers are finally answered, but she quickly realizes her husband still sees her as the naïve twenty-year-old girl she used to be, the one who was content to let him run the show. Jessica’s grown up during their difficult time apart, and she’s no longer content being a piece of arm candy for her powerful husband. If he’s going to bring her back into the deadly world of the Russian mafia, Alex needs to realize that she’s strong enough to be his partner in name and in truth. Only as equals will they find courage enough to face the days ahead.

Especially since Jorg isn’t done meddling with their lives…and his latest actions will have deadly consequences for generations to come.


This book contains a rather kinky Bratva lord who likes to give his woman all the pleasure she can handle, with the help of his friends. It includes anal, F/F play, spanking, domestic discipline, and a M/F/F/M/F/M/F/M scene that’ll make you squirm.

Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.

After being left hanging at the end of Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive, I absolutely couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book.

Alex and Jessica’s relationship has always been special but Jessica has done things on her own and in fear for a long time. To Alex she hasn’t changed except for aging and her hair color.

Jessica has always known he was alive and her husband so she hasn’t strayed from her wedding vows. On the other hand Alex thought she was dead, he was a widower, and had several affairs. None serious for him, but Jessica will have to come to terms with her jealousy over these women. She has also grown into a very strong woman, something Alex will have to deal with.

Alex is now a father to a four year old, and I truly loved the interactions between Tatiana and him. He will learn some truths about children really quick. *evil chuckle*

We meet up with all our favorites in this book, Ivan & Gia, Dimitri & Rya, Nico & Catrine, Krom, Maks and a surprise visit from Beach & Sarah!

Let me say now that this is the hottest of all the Submissive Wish books. There is a lot of kinky, smoldering hot scenes so make sure you have plenty to drink and maybe a fan and some ice to keep cool.

Lots of tears, lots of laughter, suspense and OMG scenes.

I can’t wait to see what Ann has in store for us in the next book in this series. I can see some possibilities but I know she will surprise us all.

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.

This book was a gift in exchange for an honest review.
Now seventeen, Rachel has taken fate into her own hands and has learned the art of explosives from her father. Now the younger Warriors are on a mission to attack first, instead of watching and waiting.
When Andon smells danger he decides to move the pack, so of course that means Jason will be leaving her again. One of my favorite scenes is Rachel’s conversation with Andon before they leave.

“First, I would like to say I know you believe I’m moving the pack as a means to punish you. That isn’t true.”

I shook my head. “I don’t require reassurances from you.”

He ignored my words. “I’m moving the pack because I sense danger, and it’s my duty as Alpha to keep us all safe. You’d be welcome to come with us.”

“See? I told you that.” Jason looked as if he’d been given the best gift on the planet.

“Thanks for the invitation, but as I’m sure you’re aware, I have no interest in being in your presence.”

“If you and Jason are to stay together, we must find a way to get along.”

“I see what you’re doing.” Part of me wanted to poke him in the chest with my index finger. The other part wanted to run away. So I stood still. “You’re being so kind, so easygoing, and I end up looking like the difficult one. You needn’t bother. Jason  already thinks the sun rises and sets on you, whereas he sees all my flaws. And points them out too.”

Jason thought me goodness and light, which was part of the problem, since he tended to be confused when I acted in a not-so-nice way. He took a step toward me, but I took a step away. I didn’t want him near me right then.

Andon snarled. “I am not your enemy.”

“Yes, you are.” Tears streamed down my face because I knew I had to say what was on my mind. It might tear Jason and me apart for good if I spoke my thoughts, but it was past time. “And you always will be. No matter how much other people wish it was different.

Silence swept around us on the cool breeze that threatened to become frigid as the sun set on our evening. No one spoke. If I had to guess, it was because I’d shocked Jason and because Andon was plotting his next move.

Jason leaves, again, this time with Rachel’s blessing. Then attacks take on a more brutal force. Andon had initiated things that can’t be taken back.

This book has the most profound plot twists I’ve ever read. It left me guessing as to the truth in anything from the previous books.

I can’t wait for the next one in this series, Redemption!

Amazon eBook**Amazon Paperback

I’m thrilled to be here celebrating the release of my 21st book, HARD AS STEEL! After a midnight break-in at her apartment, close friends and Hard Ink Tattoo co-workers Ike Young and Jessica Jakes are forced into hiding—and forced to confront the feelings they’ve always denied for one another. I have always adored friends-to-lovers and forced proximity stories, and HARD AS STEEL delivers that and more, including a taste of both my award-winning and best-selling Hard Ink and upcoming Raven Riders series!

Fall Tree Blog - sm - excerpt

They stared at each for a long moment. Jess went from feeling amused to awkward to observed…and that made her hot. Especially as she was standing there in nothing but a towel. As if he could hear her thoughts, Ike’s gaze slowly ran down her neck to her chest. She wiped at something there and the wetness on the fingers told her it had been a droplet of water from her hair. Ike watched the movement of her hand openly, hungrily, and his desire made her bold, daring, hungry in return.

Without giving herself time to second guess the idea, she reached out and lightly dragged her wet fingers against his bottom lip.

And it was like she’d unleashed a beast.

Ike grabbed her wrist and hauled her to him. He was on her everywhere. His hands in her hair, on her back, grabbing her ass and lifting her up. His tongue licked the exact route that water droplet had taken, from chest to neck to ear. And then he was kissing her, fucking her mouth with his tongue, absolutely devouring her.

Jess held on like her life depended on it, and at some point she became aware of the breeze on her bare skin. She’d dropped the towel, which meant she was totally buck-ass naked in Ike’s big arms, and she couldn’t have cared less.

Ike licked her mouth, sucked her tongue, nipped at her lips. He turned and made for the stairs, and Jess thought she might die from sheer joy and anticipation. He tasted like strength and sin and sex, and she tightened her legs around his hips as he carried her to the loft, eager to see if all of him tasted so good—or even better.

When they reached the second floor, Ike growled low in his throat and his grip tightened on her on her ass, his fingers digging in. She moaned and—

Cool air from the ceiling fan washed over Jess as Ike dropped her onto the bed—and promptly turned around to leave. Jess was so stunned she couldn’t speak. Just as he hit the top of the steps, he said, “Don’t fucking tease me, Jessica. I’m trying to do right by you, but I’m still just a goddamned man.”


Fall Tree Blog - sm - My review

As this series works its way to a close, we are gifted with this awesome crossover novella. Jess and Ike are really perfect for each other.  She has loved him since the day they met, and every time we see them in the previous books the sparks are flying as are the snarky comments.

With things coming to a head with the rest of the Hard Ink gang, tension and security is high. Jess has to go into hiding with Ike as her protection and of all places he takes her to his on the property of the Raven MC.

This book had me laughing, crying and swearing. These two are quite the pair and when they hook up well there’s more than just sparks flying. Have plenty to drink handy to avoid dehydration cause this is sizzling hot.

I can’t wait for the first book in the Raven Riders Series!

Hard As Steel - RDL Teaser 1

After identifying her employer’s dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn’t make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him—and always has.

Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he’s ever known, one he’s purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike’s not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself—or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.
