THE MEN OF LONDON
From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.

SEEING THROUGH…
28-year-old Draven Samuels has a tragic past, but as an investigator with a high-profile London company he now gets what he wants. Tough, sarcastic, and sceptical, he has no patience for lies and even less for people who waste his time. Even if they’re as beautiful as the wild and dark-haired Taylor Abelard. Especially when they’re talking over the body of a murder victim.

THE DARKNESS
Psychic Taylor Abelard is used to people calling him a freak. He can see past events and feel the ghostly vibrations of people close to him who’ve passed on. It’s why he doesn’t get too close to the living. But this time, against his better judgment, despite Draven’s mocking rejoinders, Taylor will get closer than ever before. The mystery surrounding a dead friend will lead the two men down a dark and seedy trail of blackmail and lies. Add in the heartbreak of a family tragedy, and events lead them straight into each other’s arms. By the end of this night, all their demons will have risen—and been banished with the dawn.

LYS Mac Nicol Trademark

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason.
She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

approach to collections, where all the stories intertwine! Our heroes are ex-military secretive operatives,
who all belong to a kickass motorcycle club.
Sound yummy? I know!
Follow  us on Facebook for release updates!
 
Elite Metal – Book One in the Elite Warriors Series
For decades the US Marines funded a top-secret unit known as
Elite Recon. A deadly group of men and women sent to infiltrate dozens of
countries completely undetected. Mission objectives so extreme casualties were
not only probable, but expected.
The current batch of operatives had returned from hundreds
of assignments unscathed…until one mission went horribly wrong. Several men
lost their lives and the group disbanded. The remaining leathernecks were scattered
in the wind with new identities. They were told to blend in. Be normal. Or face
being forever silenced just like their fallen brothers.
Now, two years later, each living member of the group is kidnapped
and given a chance to make things right. But this time they’re no longer under
the thumb of Uncle Sam. A mysterious private backer who knows about their past
has brought them back together. No longer are they forced to turn a blind eye
to the lost and forsaken.
A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.
Scorching romance from Anna Alexander and Jennifer Kacey, Heather Long, Sabrina

Sterling’s Seduction
By Sabrina York
When Sterling spots a reporter masquerading as a waitress in
a dingy bar in Deep Ellum, he suspects she’s investigating the team. And that’s
something he just cannot allow to happen. Too many lives are at stake. He will
do everything in his power to learn the truth—even seduce her. And to stop her
story from coming out? He might even tie her to the bed.
Nothing is off the table when it comes to keeping his
brothers safe. Nothing. It’s a damn shame she’s everything he’s ever wanted.
It’s a damn shame her touch warms his cold, dead heart.
READ AN EXCERPT
As she rounded the corner, her steps stalled.
Because there he was, leaning against his bike. Waiting for
her.
Well, she hoped he was waiting for her. When he saw her, he
unfolded his long legs and stood.
“Did you change your mind?” she asked, trying for a flippant
tone.
His beautiful eyebrow arched. “About what?”
“Taking me home?” Might as well be brash.
He gestured to his bike. “My alternator is shot. I’m waiting
for a ride.”
“Ah.” Why disappointment flooded her was a mystery. Or not.
“Was there…an offer on the table?” His voice was a low melody
that danced on the skeins of air. It was annoying. And not.
“Hey. I’m not the one who walked away.” She tried not to let
her petulance show.
He stepped closer and searched her face. She let him. Not
hiding at all. Or not hiding everything. She let her interest show.
“Let’s get one thing straight, Pigtails—”
“Pigtails?”
“Yeah. Pigtails.” He flicked her hair, reminding her how
she’d pulled it up. She’d been going for backwoods innocent, but it might have
backfired on her. With a harsh movement, she yanked out the rubber bands and
her hair fell around her face. His lashes flickered. Something that looked like
hunger washed over his features.
“What do you want to get straight?”
His jaw clenched. “I don’t like questions. Pure and simple.
Understood?”
The way he said the word, with a thread of dominance in his
tone, sent a shiver through her. She lowered her eyes and nodded. “Understood.
So…do you? Want to come home with me? No questions asked?”
“Maybe.” He checked his watch. “Looks like my ride isn’t
going to show, anyway.”
Hardly the flood of interest she would have preferred.
Irritation rippled. “Or I can give you a lift home.” And when his cheek
bunched, “Or call you a cab.”
“I’d rather go home with you.” He stepped closer, too close,
and pulled her against him. His fingers were harsh on her flesh, his insistence
alluring. Yes, this was what she wanted. Something rough. Something ruthless.
Something demanding.
Hunger rose in her, swamping her desire to finish this story
and get back home. Hell, she could probe him with questions later. After. This
need was far more pressing.
When he lowered his head, she caught a whiff of his
aftershave and her knees locked. He was tall, muscled and rough around the
edges. Just the kind of guy she’d always craved.
His lips touched hers and she nearly collapsed. It was a
wild rush, a tumult of sensation. For a starved woman, as she was, it was
irresistible. She couldn’t help but kiss him back, a manic frenzy. Her passion
seemed to spur his on, and he wrapped himself around her, tipped his head and
deepened the kiss. His hands roved over her back, her hips, her ass. Nothing
tentative. Nothing tender.
When he lifted his head, she was a bowl of Jell-O. Ready and
willing.
“So do you want to?” Her voice caught on the invitation.
“Yeah.” He yanked her tighter and his cock gouged into her
belly, hard and needy. “Yeah. I want to. Just no more questions.”
No more questions.
Right.

Review of Kairos by KJ Coakley


 

Kairos

Book one of the Enmortals Series

Publisher: K. J. Coakley (June 12, 2014)

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

Blurb:

What if the enticing man who has just seized your every sense enlightens you to realms beyond our dimension? Can that spark of love withstand a war to protect mankind? Kairos: An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley is the spellbinding novel that reveals that the deepest love need not be confined to the trappings of one world.

The first in a series of adult paranormal romances, Kairos swirls in mankind, magic, and mythology as it chronicles the first blush of yearning between Sulwen Macgregor, a shy and sheltered college senior, and Logan Thatcher, a mesmerizing former playboy with arresting good looks, an offbeat sense of humor, and an ironclad moral code. When the two meet, Sulwen has no inkling that she soon will embark on an odyssey that not only exposes Logan as other than mortal, but uncovers astonishing aspects of her own being as well.

As Logan saves Sulwen from fast-approaching peril, the two must discover if their love is truly without bounds and strong enough to fend off adversaries far more craven than they ever could fathom. With wild imagination, otherworldly passion, and heart-pumping action, Kairos goes where no human being has dared, all in the name of love.

My Review:

As you all know I love romance so adding a paranormal note to it just gives it more spice.

Sulwen Macgregor has only one more semester of classes left before graduation.  She is looking forward to a summer off, a lighter work schedule and maybe a nice vacation.

Then she meets Logan Thatcher, first at the store where she works, then as a blind date arranged by her roommate, Tonya. Tonya ran into Logan and his friend Thad at the local coffee shop and somehow ended up with dates.

The sexual tension is high between Logan and Sulwen but there are undercurrents of something else from the moment they meet.

Their second date was a bit disturbing to me, because it became a weekend.  They hardly know one another. But that’s also where I found a favorite scene.

The huge exit signs on the interstate and his elated smile were what gave it away. We’re going to Busch Gardens. I haven’t been to a theme park since I was a little girl, and a small, childlike thrill runs through me. I’m going to ride every roller coaster they have. I can see them in the distance as we pull up into the massive parking lot.

Logan pulls the SUV into a marked space. While he’s rolling up the windows and locking up the car, I step out and around for a better view of the park. It’s so big I can’t fathom seeing it all in one day, but I want to try.

Logan steps up beside me and slides his hand in mine. I squeeze and grin up at him. He tugs me, and we walk toward the trolley stop.

At the front entrance, I’m overwhelmed with the smells and sounds and all of the people milling about. This place is amazing. I spin around in a small circle, taking it all in. Logan leans down and kisses my cheek. His lips are warm, and the touch of them is like a burst of sunshine upon me. God, I love his touch. He’s so open with me that I fall into an easy familiarity when I’m with him. It’s like I’ve known him forever, and I can finally be myself without holding back.

I don’t have to try to be what he wants me to be because it’s the real me that he wants. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and it’s all because of Logan. I’ve known him for such a short time, but there’s something more between us than I’ve ever had before.

“You said you’ve never traveled, so I found the perfect place to take you a little bit of everywhere.” His smile spreads to his eyes, and he looks so happy in that moment. I tiptoe up to his mouth, kiss him soundly on the lips, and then abruptly pull away.

I’m grinning from ear to ear. This is going to be a spectacular day. I can feel him chuckle when he hugs me. We pull apart, and he grabs my hand and leads me toward England.

Best. Day. Ever.

Nearly twelve hours later, I awake when Logan lifts me from the car. I snuggle into his chest and wrap my arms around his neck. He smells like funnel cake and corn dogs. I smile and relax into him. He’s so strong that he carries me with effortless ease. His heart pounds a lulling beat beneath my cheek and ear, and before I know it, my eyes are heavy again, and I drift back off to sleep.

No question the sex is steamy and downright sizzles.  As soon as these two get close to each other it’s only a matter of time before they are going at it like rabbits.

As the whole truth comes out about why they met and Sulwen understands what her name has to do with his purpose in finding her, the inevitable trip to Scotland becomes reality.

Sulwen trains to fight things she cannot even imagine. When things heat up and Sulwen ends up kidnapped and Logan injured, a whole new aspect of the Barrier arises.

I really wish Sulwen had more of feelings of being different/more earlier in the book.   For me, everything seemed to happen too quickly without enough explanation.  Another thing that bothered me was all the loose ends, and the epilogue adds more questions instead of answering them.

I need to read the second book for answers I hope I get.

I give this book 3 out of 5 purrs.

Release Day Review of His Guarded Heart by Lia Davis with Giveaway


His Guarded Heart Cover vFinal 72dpi

His Guarded Heart
By Lia Davis

February 3, 2015
Genre: MM Military Romance
Length: novella (15K words)

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

Blurb:

Senator Beau Beckett refuses to lay low because of a few death threats on postcards. His new bodyguard isn’t going to convince him otherwise. At least not until the threat becomes real and his four year old daughter’s safety is jeopardized. He has no choice but to work with his cocky and sexy Agent Wolfe to stay alive.

Federal Security Protection agent, Judd Wolfe doesn’t play by the rules. His out-of-the-box way of getting things done lands him a babysitting job. But being Senator Beckett’s bodyguard while staying out of his bed becomes his biggest challenge as passion ignites between the men.

Buy Link:

Amazon

My Review:

It always amazes me how totally immersed in a story I get.  From the very beginning I was sucked into the suspense, missing files all leading back to Senator Beau Beckett.  A man named Smith threatening assassination and a bomb in a warehouse.  Even with all of this the Senator is not taking it seriously. At least not until Judd Wolfe a Federal Security Protection agent comes on the scene and the threats go up a notch to include the Senator’s daughter, Angel.

With Angel and Beau safe at home, the realization of the amount of knowledge the assassin has makes the normal path of protection less than ideal.  Judd is determined to keep them safe and do his best to keep his hands off the Senator.

As arrangements are made from transport to secure locations, Beau gives Judd his personal journal with notes about the gifts from when his wife was alive and everything leading up to the current events.

When their hands connect over the thumb drive, Beau and Judd both feel a deeper connection, and Beau takes the initiative. This is one of my favorite scenes in the book.

Passion darkened the agent’s chocolate brown eyes, luring Beau closer. His gaze dropped to Judd’s lips and Beau wondered how the other man would taste. Was he gentle under the hard exterior?

Without a conscious thought, Beau leaned forward and pressed his lips to Judd’s. Every muscle trembled as Judd returned the kiss, thrusting his tongue through the seam of Beau’s lips.

Beau opened and swirled his tongue around the other man’s. His impossibly hard cock pressed painfully against the zipper of his slacks.

Judd’s hand glided over Beau’s thigh then up to cup him. Gripping his wrist, Beau broke the kiss and held the agent’s desire-drunk stare. “Wait.”

“I can’t. I’ve wanted you from the first moment I saw you in that courtroom all those years ago.”

Fuck.

Beau stood, linked his fingers with Judd’s and yanked him to a stand. “My room is behind you to the right off the kitchen. I’m going to check on Angel and lock up the house.”

One dark brow rose at the same time the corners of Judd’s sensual lips did. “I’ll lock up while you check on Angel.”

The temperature goes up from here.  The passion and intensity combined with the urgency to draw out and eliminate the assassin, makes this a page turner not to be missed. You might want to have a fan and a couple of cold drinks handy as well.

I give this book 5 Contented PURRS!

Bravo Lia! What is next on your wicked little agenda?  I just can’t wait.

Excerpt:

“I don’t need a bodyguard.” Beau fisted his hands atop his desk.

“It’s not your choice. The orders came from—”

Beau slammed a palm against the wood, silencing his chief of staff, then took some deep, slow breaths. Notes on postcards weren’t reason enough to call in a Federal Protective Service agent to cover his personal security. “I know where the orders came from.”

FPS didn’t usually play babysitter unless the orders came from the President, which told Beau they had made a threat assessment and the results must be grave. Yet, no one would explain to him how serious. With a sigh, he sat back in his chair and tapped his fingers against the desktop. “It was two separate incidents, both of them accidents.”

Jaw tightening, Greta folded her arms and stared at him. No doubt his chief of staff wanted to choose her words carefully. If she’d known about the notes, she wouldn’t have waited this long to escalate the security issue. “I have to disagree, sir. Those so-called accidents were avoidable, and happened in public places.”

She pointed to the file she placed on his desk upon entering his office. “The file has everything you need to know about your new security detail.”

Exhaling a heavy, growl-like breath, Beau opened the file and scanned over the details.

“Would you like me to cancel your dinner reservations?”

Beau raised a brow and returned his attention to Greta. “No. I’ll just take my babysitter with me.”

She pursed her lips. “Judd Wolfe is not a babysitter. He’s a highly trained operative.”

“I can read. Thank you, Greta. That is all.”

When she didn’t move, he raised his gaze to meet hers and lifted a brow. With a huff, she pivoted on her heels and left. Beau returned his attention to the file. Wolfe had served in the Air Force from the time he turned eighteen until three years ago. The records in front of Beau said it was an honorable discharge due to an injury in the field, but gave no details. Figures. Military documents listed only the most basic information.

Nothing else.

A heavy knock on the door drew his attention. It swung inward, revealing a tall man with lean muscles that filled out his white button down and black slacks well. Even the briefcase in his hand didn’t take away from his attractiveness. Beau studied him from his shaved head to the strong, clean-shaven, yet familiar face before he locked onto the agent’s stern stare. The dark brown depths told him nothing of the man’s emotions. Cold and uninviting. The memory of a younger version of the man before him flashed across Beau’s mind. Then it dawned on him. Beau had represented Judd Wolfe a couple of times during his time as a JAG.

“I see the Air Force didn’t make you less of an ass.” Beau watched one dark brow rise.
