Lara has always relished being a thorn in Mason’s paw. When she was chosen as pride Enforcer, it was easier than ever to get under the passionate shifter’s skin. But with the scent of humans in the air comes a threat she’s powerless to battle alone.

It’s time Lara unites with the one man she needs, the one man she’s secretly drawn to…as if by fate.

If there’s one thing Mason hates more than relinquishing control to a female, it’s the attraction he feels for the fiery lioness. Joining forces with Lara against an insidious enemy only makes their primal bond hotter—and the two of them stronger.

Now it’s up to them, side by side, to bring together three warring shifter clans, win the final fight and save Deep Creek.

Claiming His Lioness Excerpt
Copyright © 2018 Kerry Adrienne

One, two, three, four…A deep breath, and the world didn’t seem quite as red. Another breath. Don’t let him get to you.“Women have roles and men have roles.” Mason cleared his throat then narrowed his eyes. “Not better or worse. Different.”

“This isn’t the Middle Ages.” Her voice was calm. Soft but firm.

“I know. Women have babies. Men fight.”

“Wow, seriously? Women have babies and fight. You saw how much help the lionesses were at the cave. We’d have lost a lot more lions if we hadn’t been there…to fight. We weren’t there to nurse cubs.” He was getting to her. She kicked at the leaves on the ground.

Only an hour or so till dark. The faint strains of sunset were already slanting through the trees, painting an orange glow to the surroundings, and the forest sounds were shifting to nocturnal melodies.

“You helped a lot and I appreciate that. My point is, why not let the men take care of you now? We aren’t in desperate need of your help like we were at the cave, so why not let us protect you?”

He really didn’t get it. Lara started to speak but paused. What could she say to make him understand? Did he really think women had roles that were so defined, they couldn’t do other things too? Or did he feel that it was his role to make sure women were safe and secure?

Regardless, it was obnoxious. And a prime example of how tall, dark and dangerous wasn’t enough.

“It’s noble of you to want to protect the women.” She chewed the inside of her cheek, trying to maintain her calm and phrase things in a nonconfrontational way. No point in having him dismiss her thoughts because he felt intimidated. “But you don’t need to protect us unless we ask you to. We can protect ourselves. You should accept the help or you’re going to have a lot of pissed-off lionesses. Trust me, you don’t want that.”

Mason looked deeper into the forest, his shoulders bunched with tension. His back, broad and sloping to a muscular ass, filled his black T-shirt perfectly. Wrestling with him wasn’t so bad, was it? In other circumstances, it could be a lot of fun.

She might even win.

She fought the urge to run her hand over his shoulders to comfort him and satisfy her craving. Yank his T-shirt off and press herself against those muscles. They were definitely hard. She’d felt them when he lay across her on the ground.

No. She shook her head.

Mason was off-limits.

Release Blast, Giveaway and Review! Forget You – The Kingman Brothers Book 1 by Nina Crespo


In the first novel in the new Kingman Brothers series from Nina Crespo a disgruntled assistant is wrangled into staying on to help her boss when he suffers from amnesia after a plane crash…Playing this out with him was so wrong, but she didn’t want to stop.

Forget You
The Kingman Brothers Book 1

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

In this steamy and sexy first book in the Kingman Brothers series—filled with relatable moments and electrical tension—a disgruntled assistant is wrangled into staying on to help her boss when he suffers from amnesia after a plane crash.

Sophie Jordan dreams about hooking up with Nicolas “King” Kingman—the gorgeous CEO of her company—but as her boss, he’ll always remain out of reach. King knows he isn’t built for happily-ever-afters and only indulges in brief romantic encounters. But when Sophie agrees to fill in as his last-minute date to a charity gala, an unexpected discovery quickly escalates their platonic relationship to one of passion.

King is determined to ignore their attraction and, feeling betrayed, Sophie severs ties with him and the company. Everything changes, however, when he’s injured in an accident, and Sophie agrees to help until he closes a major deal. Unfortunately, he’s developed amnesia, and although he doesn’t remember their night together, desire binds them in ways they can’t resist.

Time is running out on closing the deal, as well as Sophie moving on to her new career. Will King deny love in favor of winning and lose Sophie forever?

Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogogoogle_play_logo_002_002

This book was a bit of a twist on what I consider the norm for rich boss and employee romance and I liked it.

Sophie is the best admin the Kingman brothers ever had, and never has Nic ‘King’ though about her in any way other than that. That is until he fought with his flavor of the week and had a friend dress her to attend a gala with him.

One night of passion followed by rejection has Sophie quitting her job, two weeks notice.

His plane going off the runway leaves him with a head injury and no recollection of their one night of passion, or the things he discovered at the gala.

Sophie makes a connection that will help her make the decision to leave King once he’s well enough to return to work. His friend Meghan who dressed her for the gala has a new clothing line coming out and she is designing and making the jewelry to compliment it.

I liked the twist of the guy having the accident and having to figure everything out again, including the way he managed to lose the girl.

A fun read with angst, family drama, sexual tension, plenty of sizzle and so much more!

He pulled into a space, threw the gear in park, and got out. Sophie’s shocked expression alone would whip him down to size. Guilt over dreaming of her naked would replace his attraction to her. That’s exactly what he needed. A heaping pile of remorse.

Signs with numbers and arrows led him through the maze of duplexes in the courtyard. In the past, he’d followed her from work after a long night to make sure she’d made it safely home, but he’d never actually gone to her apartment before. King located the right door and rapped on it. Not that he had a good reason now.

A porch light flickered on above him. He heard movement inside. What if Sophie’s roommate answered? He’d forgotten about her. Shit. What was his excuse? A lost phone number. Problems accessing the presentation from his computer.

Sophie opened the door. Devoid of makeup, hair swept back into a ponytail, and dressed in a faded green tee and jean shorts, she radiated uncomplicated beauty. “King? What are you doing here?”

He barely squashed the need to take her in his arms and went inside. “We have to talk. Is your roommate here?”

“No. Robin’s at work.” She closed the door. “Why? What’s going on?”

“When were we together?”

“Yesterday. Don’t you remember?” The genuine concern in her expression made him feel like a cross between a jerk for thinking of her sexually and a man struggling to prove his sanity.

“No. I mean yes.” He raked his hair and pulled so hard his scalp stung. “When did we sleep together?” Shock. Laughter. An emphatic denial. He braced for them.

Sophie paled. She shrugged and brushed her bangs from her forehead. Her tell. She planned to deny what happened.

No way in hell was she getting away with that. “How long ago was it? Weeks? Days? Why didn’t you tell me?”

Figure out exactly how his last assignment went to hell and almost killed him—and reconnect with the woman who might offer salvation.

Ava Monroe has streamlined her life, eliminating every source of pain—including a marriage touched by tragedy. One glimpse of her ex and those good intentions turn to bad-girl desires.

Incredible.

That was the only word in his head as the aftershocks trembled through their bodies.

Incredible.

And then he came down.

Not in a nice, slow, gentle descent, either.

Nope, he crashed like a plane plummeting from the sky to ram into a mountainside.

He’d just had sex.

With Ava.

His ex-wife. The only woman he’d ever loved. The only one he’d ever wanted to love. The one who’d broken his heart into tiny little pieces and tossed them aside.

Shit.

His body still slick with sweat, the scent of Ava wrapped around him like a second skin, Elijah wondered if she realized that while extracting her promise of no regrets, he hadn’t offered the same.
After all, Elijah knew just how pointless promises could be. Especially the ones between him and Ava.

His body spent, his mind worn, he couldn’t find anything left to offer up on the altar of past regrets, though. He wrapped his arm tighter around her shoulders. Ava responded by snuggling closer, her thigh nestled between his as she shifted her chin into the indention where his shoulder met his chest. Her breath fluttered over his throat, soft and easy in sleep.

Regret?

Oh yeah, he knew he’d regret this in the morning. Hell—he glanced out the window, gauging the time from the angle of the moon—it was nearing dawn and the regret was already winding through him. Shoving aside pleasure, easing out satisfaction.

Closing his eyes against it, he drifted into sleep with her hand entwined with his, the twisted band of her ring rubbing gently between his fingers.

And he knew it for the talisman it was, the hope that lifted him from his nightmares.

If only for tonight.

Because nobody knew better than Elijah that tonight was all they had.

Releasing Tomorrow! Ghost Wolf – Wolves of Willow Bend #12 by Heather Long


Releasing Tomorrow!!!

It’s the book you’ve been waiting for!
Don’t miss the stunning conclusion to the Guardians of the Wolves!

Ghost Wolf
Wolves of Willow Bend #12
By
USA Today Bestselling Author
Heather Long

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Most Lone Wolves have a story—a pack they left behind, a love they lost, or worse, one they buried. Some leave their packs to roam because they crave freedom, and independence. Some leave because in their hearts, they can’t bear to stay. Some leave because they see no way to go back…

Packs attacked. Humans forced to turn. Enforcers murdered.

Julian has been juggling the conflict without a real target for months, they always seem to be just one step behind the Volchitsa and even the wolves they’ve captured can’t tell them enough. With the fate of the packs resting squarely on his shoulders, Julian, the Chief Enforcer, will swallow his pride to seek out the one wolf he knows can help them all, the one who seems to know all the players, who can think like them…if anyone can find the Volchitsa it’s the ghost he’s hunted for decades…

KindleLogo Barnes and Noble logo_150 ibooks-logo-150x150KoboLogo 

Oh what a tangled web! This book takes us on a journey through past and present. Written with glimpses of history woven into the lives of Julian and Dallas starting in 1971 and progressing to the present.

Now Julian has always been a bit mysterious, and no one really knows much about him outside his chief enforcer role. This book changes all that and more.

We’ve seen glimpses of Dallas especially where Chrystal is concerned and we’ve seen her with Julian on one memorable occasion. Now a truce needs to be formed and a solution found to the Volchitsa problem, for which it appears Dallas may hold the key.

The pressure is on and this book is one OMG after another. However it is the past that truly engages me. A young Dallas and an enforcer named Julian.

This is a favorite scene early in the book.

Dropping onto the chair next to her, he flipped open the cooler. A half dozen bottles were inside, tucked into a bed of ice. “Expecting company?”

“I expected you a week ago,” she answered, then tilted her bottle up for another drink. “What kept you?”

Amused, even though he should be livid, Julian pulled a beer out and opened it. “You relocated without notifying me.” If she had notified him, there would have been a message with the service. “You had the number you were required to call.”

A smile curved her lips, and he could imagine her throaty chuckle though she didn’t make a sound.

“But you didn’t call it,” he said, popping the cap off and tossing it into the bin just inside the door. “I check my messages daily.”

“You are so very responsible.” Dallas shrugged.

“You like having that power—where are we? What are we doing? Did we ask if we could have dessert before dinner?”

“You’re not a child, Dallas.” He lifted his bottle, then tapped hers when she met him halfway. “Don’t act like one.”

“Did I touch a nerve?” The invitation to play curled within her tone.

As delightful an offer as she was making, he couldn’t accept. “When you relocate, you call it in. Whether it’s a state, a beach, or a block away—you call. You provide the address and the date you intend to move. It’s not about control.”

“Bullshit,” she replied without an ounce of rancor. “It’s all about control. I’m alone. I answer to no one…except you, of course. I’m to answer to you, because you want to put a leash on me and snap tight to my collar.”

Laughter rumbling in his chest, Julian shook his head. “Woman, I wouldn’t dare put a leash on you. You’d chew through my arm.”

“And don’t you forget it.” She sat forward and swung around to face him. Her bare legs slid against his denim covered ones. “So can we stop pretending that you’re only checking in on me for duty?”
Heather Long. Ghost Wolf (Kindle Locations 902-917). Heather Long. Kindle Edition.

I expected this book to be hot in more ways than one and trust me it surpasses all expectations. There is shock and surprise as Julian and Dallas spar verbally and physically.

Truths beyond games, a trial, an Alpha Conclave and more send this book to the top of my all time favorites.

Most Lone Wolves have a story–a pack they left behind, a love they lost, or worse, one they buried. Some leave their packs to roam because they crave freedom, and independence. Some leave because in their hearts, they can’t bear to stay. Some leave because they see no way to go back… 

Enforcer John Nelson has pulled double duty for months, keeping an eye on the Lone Wolves who are his charges as well as those that once answered to Margo Montgomery. More of a loner than most, he doesn’t mind going months at a time without seeing another Enforcer as was his typical pattern or at least it was until the formation of the Three Rivers pack disrupted lives everywhere. Now he must divide his time between watching the upstarts and checking on his charges while working with the other Enforcers to anticipate the next move by the Russian Volchitsa. No Enforcer expected to find themselves among the hunted, but when they target the one wolf he can tolerate, John defies orders to go after her. 

Hadley Sexton is a bit of a wild card even for an Enforcer, and she loves being unpredictable. More of a mother hen than she likes to admit, she keeps an eye on her Lone Wolves, and treats them more like family than charges…but when three Enforcers are brutally murdered over the course of three weeks, Hadley discovers someone has been shadowing her trail and they aren’t alone. It is a dangerous game with a brutal enemy, one willing to kill the wolves she’s sworn to protect to draw her out. 

For Hadley, John will break every rule, but will he be in time?

While trying to figure out what the hell the Russian Volchitsa is really up to, Julian has ordered his enforcers to gather up their lone wolfs. This is for their own protection, Hadley took that opportunity to purchase an old resort, where all her charges are now ensconced. While some are enjoying the camaraderie, others not so much.

Now with an Enforcer tortured and killed, and another missing and presumed dead, Julian is weighing the possibility of having all lone wolves within pack territories until the threat is eliminated.

Having lost contact with Hadley, John wants to go after her, unfortunately Julian wants him in Willow Bend. Mason has other ideas and sends John on his way with supplies and his request to find her safe. Hadley’s one of his.

This is a favorite scene when John catches up with her.

The Russian witch tracked her in moments, then lunged toward her with a fierce snarl on her face. Hadley met her, and they struck tooth and claw. The woman jerked her hair and tried to flip her, but Hadley was an Enforcer. She’d trained for moments like these. She raked the wolf’s face and drew blood.

A shadow fell over them, and the wolf was hauled off of her. The audible sound of the wolf’s back cracking, followed by the snap of her neck, infuriated Hadley. Just like that, her potential prisoner was dead and thrown to impact against the side of a tree.

Hadley snarled and came to her knees, then met John’s intemperate gaze.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

He frowned, then blinked. “I was saving your life.”

Dammit.
Heather Long. Thunder Wolf (Kindle Locations 1768-1774).

Boy was Hadley pissed. And that was just the beginning.

There is a lot going on in this one. The Volchitsa is getting more aggressive and there is no pattern. It seems they are always one step ahead.

John and Hadley have their own ideas and there are lots of sexy surprises for both them and us in the midst of all this.

The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team’s finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…

“No man left behind” is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego’s honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger’s path.

Winter Blog Review

When a Poseidon mission goes FUBAR and they lose a team member and can’t recover the body. The team is suddenly under suspicion and to keep his team lead out of the investigation focus Captain Nick Savino sets him on a mission to help clear not only the team but himself.

As the team leader Diego is the one who had the most to lose, everything he had worked so hard for could be taken away. His assignment is to get information on the family of the deceased team member. It is proving difficult since the woman in question works from home and is extremely protective of her son.

His opportunity came in the form of her son, Nathan, with a broken bicycle chain he didn’t want his Mom to know about. Diego was able to fix it and get some chatter about his Mom and the frequent deliveries she gets. Part of that scene is in the excerpt below and is one of my favorite scenes.

Harper has raised Nathan alone, his father wanted nothing to do with her pregnancy and had in fact ordered her to get an abortion. She took the money for it but took off and had her son, working hard to provide for him.

When Diego had moved in next door it hadn’t raised any questions since the owner frequently rented it out to business people in need of a residence for a few months or weeks. On the other hand, it didn’t take much for Harper to notice how attractive her new neighbor was or recognize her own libido awakening in his presence.

The last thing Diego expected was to fall for the woman he was investigating for clues. Clearing his name and his team’s reputation was his first priority anything personal had to take second place.

Lots of frustration at dead ends and more questions without answers as these two fall hard for each other. Suspense, drama and plenty of sizzling scenes, combined with the love for a little boy who deserves only the best, make this a must read.

Winter Blog excerpt

“You’re the best, mister.” The kid had to get his smile from his mother, Diego decided. Because not once could Diego remember Ramsey’s smile making him want to offer one in return.

“Diego,” he said after a second, figuring talking was better than standing here on the sidewalk, grinning like an idiot. “You can call me Diego.”

“Cool. I’m Nathan. I’m seven. I’m gonna be a stunt¬man when I grow up. Or a veterinarian. I’d rather be a Jedi warrior, but Mom says we’ll see about that one. She says that about a lot of stuff. We’ll see. What are you?”

Huh? Was that a question? The kid’s expression said it was, so Diego did a mental replay.

“I’m in security,” he said, using the cover Savino had decided on.

“Bet you’re good at it.” Grabbing the bike by the han¬dles, the kid gave it a good shake, then grinned when the chain stayed in place. “You’re good at fixing things, too. Maybe you could teach me to fix some things?”

Diego didn’t have much experience with kids—hell, he didn’t have any experience. Despite that, he had to figure this one was something special.

Before he could answer him, a delivery truck rumbled its way to a stop in front of the kid’s house. Some thing he’d noticed was a regular occurrence. At least once, sometimes twice a day.

“You sure get a lot of deliveries,” he observed, watching a guy in shorts carry a stack of boxes toward the door.

“Yeah. Mom gets tons of stuff. She decorates for people’s houses. She orders pillows and bowls and things like that. Sometimes she gets material and things to help her decide colors.”

Convenient. Or it would be if Ramsey were running drugs or stolen goods—that’d be a solid cover. But unless he’d shipped himself home in an ash can, it probably wasn’t pertinent. Lansky would claim otherwise, though, so Diego made a note to mention it in his next report.

He caught a flash of something out of the corner of his eye. All it took was a casual glance toward the house to send him rocking back on his heels.

Damn.

Not even signing for a slew of packages and fending off the flirtations of the delivery guy were enough to keep Harper Maclean from sending her son a protective frown.

So far his glimpses of her had been at a longer distance than the twenty feet currently separating them. Her photos didn’t do her justice. He’d known she was a looker, but no way he’d have thought fully dressed in person could trump that bikini shot, even if that bikini shot had been kind of blurry.

He’d have been wrong.

Until he meets the quiet and beautiful Desiree, and the walls around his heart start to crumble. When she calls him for help, broken and scared, he can’t deny her, and the urge to claim her for his own becomes an overwhelming need.

Trapped in the Underworld as the war between witches and demons escalates, Lex and Desiree must face their pasts and their fears—and open their hearts—if they are to find a way out. Meanwhile, the Divinities in the natural world prepare for a battle that is no longer just dark versus light. If lost, it could mean the end of life as they know it.

Winter Blog Review

This final episode begins right where Dark Divine ends. With the rescue of Teddy and Bear, Hecate’s hell hounds and keepers of the sinew, from Hell. Unfortunately Samoan has managed to created a dark sinew, forcing the gods to close the portals to the human world. Lex and Desiree now have to find a way out of hell, and join the others in stopping the coming apocalypse.

This is a favorite scene right after the portals close.

Stuck in Hell with a Death Demon without the earth her Divinity half craved… The magic in the Underworld was heavy and dark. She needed to get home.

Folding her arms, she glared at Lex while trying to tamp down the rush of desire his presence caused. “I hope you know of a way to get back home.”

He grunted and pushed past her as if ending the conversation.

Oh no, he doesn’t. She whirled around and followed him through the living room to the study across from his bedroom. “There is another way out, right?”

Another grunt was her answer.

She pursed her lips and studied him as he pulled several books from the shelves. “What are you looking for?”

“A way out.”

Well, didn’t that answer her questions? She rolled her eyes and left the room. Fine. If he weren’t going to talk to her, she’d search for her own way home. Pushing out the back door, she scowled at the gloom of the Underworld. The air held hints of rosemary and sulfur. Reminded her of Samoan’s scent, only not as sweet.

Breathing deeply, she closed her eyes and called her Porter half to the surface, beseeching the lost souls she felt in every shadow of the Underworld to aid her in crossing to the natural realm. Instead of helping her, they attacked. Rushed around her, through her, raging like angry beams of light.

What the fuck? There were too many of them tearing at her. They called her a witch and thought she was responsible for trapping them there. Many even screamed in her mind. She curled into a ball on the ground, her arms wrapped protectively around her head.

Pain rocketed through her, and she screamed out as she blasted the spirits with everything she had stored up and hadn’t gotten to use at the castle. Instantly, they vanished.

Uncurling and pushing to her feet, she met the green eyes of a hellhound. He watched her with eyes much too humanlike. Then a shudder went through its body as it…shifted?

A moment later, Mathew stood in front of her. My son. Her heart lurched in her chest and tears filled her eyes. “Matty,” she breathed, making the kid narrow his eyes in curiosity.

“No one calls me that. Who are you?”

Chest tightening, she knew he wouldn’t remember her. Yet, she had to try. Tears filled her eyes. “I’m your mother.”

When she stepped forward, he backed up, shaking his head. “My mother’s dead.”

Anger rose up then. Samoan would die when Desiree found the bitch. “Samoan lied to you like she lied to me.”

Just then, darkness settled around them, making the gloomy realm almost lightless. The air grew heavier with black magic. It was as if something had changed the Underworld.

Matty looked at the sky and scowled. “It has begun.” Then he took off into the forest.

What ensues from here is a race against the clock. The Divinities need to kill Samoan and get the dark sinew. Then deal with Kahn.

Things become tense in the human realm, as the divinities attempt to raise an army strong enough to beat whatever Samoan and Khan throw at them.

Never a dull moment in this one. As Matthew figures out that Samoan was indeed lying about his mother, he also chooses the Divinities’ side. All while keeping the extent of his powers a secret.

Lots of secrets revealed and an explosive conclusion.

You won’t be able to put this one down.
