blurb-fall-cornucopia

Hopelessly shy and utterly repressed, Katherine Hart slakes her taboo desires online, where the anonymity allows her to indulge without embarrassment. Her virtual lover, Savage, is willing to meet her every need, especially once he discovers her naughty little secret—more than anything, she craves a masterful man. Fortunately, Savage is just that. And then some.

When Adam Trillo—aka Savage—discovers the shameless, erotic woman he’s been tangling with online is actually his demure coworker, he’s determined to seduce her in real life. He longs to release the wild Kat he knows lurks just below the surface. With a relentless mix of domination and persuasive charm, he draws her into his web until she’s helpless to deny their mutual passion.

Particularly when she’s tied to his bed.

review-fall-cornucopia

Seriously, I am surprised my Kindle didn’t melt from this book.

Katherine likes a little kink but hasn’t met anyone to trust enough with that fact. She dresses conservatively at work and follows the rules meticulously after having to leave her last job because of an inter-office romance. She hears some co-workers talking about a chat site and joins. There she finds Savage who gives her exactly what she needs without having to be close.

Adam has been burned by a cheating wife and is relationship shy, so he joins a chat site that he overheard some co-workers talking about.  There he finds Wildkat who enjoys his kind of play. He likes being anonymous as he gets what he needs.

As our tale begins Katherine’s late for her nightly chat with Savage, she got caught in traffic because of the rainy weather. When he does answer her chat he is annoyed, but turns up the heat on the conversation right away. He suggests she needs to be punished for keeping him waiting.

When a big project causes late nights, Katherine cancels her chat with Savage and Adam starts to suspect that the seemingly straight-laced Katherine is his Wildkat.

I loved the way every revelation is made, the suspense was killing me to see how these two would come together. It’s a good thing there is an excerpt that I love, because I really couldn’t choose a favorite scene.

I laughed, panted some and wanted to slap some of the co-workers. Definitely one of the hottest books I’ve read this year.

5 Contented Purrs for Sabrina!

excerpt-fall-cornucopia

Her Internet Lover…

“There’s something I want you to do.” His voice was low, hard; a certain, intense timbre vibrated through him to her, thrumming over the computer connection.

“Yes,” she breathed. “Anything.”

“First, what are you wearing?”

It was all Katherine could do to hold back her laugh. “Not that again.”

“Seriously. I want an answer.”

She shrugged. “A cocktail dress. Black. With heels.”

“Put on your teddy,” he commanded, and she complied.

She slipped off her dress and bra, dropping both on a forgotten pile on the floor, and then pulled her satin teddy from her suitcase. It felt cool slipping over her skin. It caught on her hard nipples, making them grow even fatter. She moaned as she rubbed them, you know, just a little, to enhance the mood.

“Mmm. It feels good.”

“Are you wearing the teddy?”

“Yes.”

“Perfect. What do you have on under it?”

“Nothing. Well, panties.”

“Perfect. Do you still have the heels on?”

“Yes.” She did. As much as she hated them, she loved the way they looked. Besides, the heels completely changed the way she felt in the black teddy. In the full length mirror behind the door, she looked practically sexy.

“How do you look?”

“Hot.”
“I’ll bet.” The words were guttered, heavy and harsh. “I wish I could see you. Now. There’s something I want you to do.”

“What?”

“I want you to go and get two ice cubes.”

“What?” Was he insane? She’d have to walk all the way through the hotel suite to the kitchen. “In my teddy?”

“Yes.”

“Savage, he might see me.”

“What if he does? Maybe he’ll fuck you. That’s what you want. Isn’t it?”
Katherine didn’t answer.

“Isn’t it? Deep down, you want him inside you.”

Again, she didn’t respond.

“Answer me.”

“Yes. Yes.”

“Then go to the kitchen. In your teddy. And get two ice cubes. Oh. And Wildkat?”

“Yes?”

“Before you go, take off the panties.”

“What?”

“Take them off. I want you completely exposed. And I want you to know how exposed you are.”

“I can’t.”

“You can. If you don’t, I’ll have to punish you.”

“But—”

“No Kat. No questions. Just do it.”

She stood by the door for several minutes, contemplating this challenge and, most especially, how it made her feel. She was liquid inside, and quivering. She would, she decided at length, go to the kitchen and get the ice cubes wearing her teddy, but she would leave her panties in place. Utterly bare-assed was a little further than she was willing to go, especially when Adam might discover her at any moment. Besides…Savage would never know she had cheated just a little.

Slowly she turned the knob and peered out into the hallway. There was no one there. She slipped through the shadows and into the living room, heading toward the kitchen. She pushed open the swinging door and froze.

There stood Adam Trillo cracking out ice cubes at the counter. His chest was bare—a magnificent panoply of rippling muscles and scattered darkling dust. He wore only baggy gray sweatpants held up, it seemed, by the enormous bulge in the front.

“Hey there Wildkat,” he purred. “What took you so long?”

   Tristan’s Temptation
         by Sabrina York

Coming November 17th

The red-hot sequel to Adam’s Obsession.

Tristan Trillo has one steadfast rule—thou shalt not fish in the company pond. That puts his executive assistant Shannon Weiss firmly out of reach. He tells himself the secret steamy computer simulations he creates—ones featuring a seductress with more than a passing resemblance to Shannon—are enough. But watching the virtual Shannon get spanked or tied up, taken from behind or while down on her knees, just makes him want the real Shannon more.
When Shannon discovers the depth of Tristan’s desire, she vows to seduce him in real life, his rule be damned. After a blazing, illicit tryst in Tristan’s office, he insists they can never do it again. So Shannon, ever the obedient assistant, makes certain the next time she seduces him, they do something completely different.
Poor Tristan is a man trapped between his steadfast rule and a burning passion. A rock, if you will, and a very hard place.

  Making Over Maris
      by Sabrina York
Coming December 1st
When über-nerd Jack asks Sara to make him more attractive to women, she can’t say no–even though it’s an impossible task. He’s shaggy and doughy and hopelessly inappropriate. He has no style or emotional intelligence but he’s a good person. And a great friend. What Sara never expects? Beneath all that fur and geekiness is a steamy hunk just waiting to emerge.
Jack takes Sara’s regimen very seriously, working out and losing weight until he feels like a new man. He even complies with her command to shave his beard–because Jack didn’t ask Sara to make him over so he would be attractive to other women. He only wants to be attractive to her. They go on a series of fake dates, each hotter and more sinful than the last. It’s not long before Sara discovers Jack’s secret desire to be dominated and what began as an arrangement becomes something amazing–something that could be real.

Dougal scampered around them, chasing dust whorls, but Brandon’s attention was on Porsche’s face. He was loath to let her go. “So, did you and Claire come up with any brilliant ideas?” He wasn’t truly interested, but this was as good a ploy as any to keep her here. For a while longer at least.

Porsche threw back her head and laughed. Her eyes sparkled and her parted lips tantalized him. “No. We got distracted.” She leaned closer. “We often do.”

“What distracted you?”

She pinned an innocent look on her face. “Lisa was making profiteroles.”

“What the hell are profiteroles?”

“Choux à la crème,” she said with a wave of her hand.

He laughed. “Still in the dark.”

“Cream puffs.”

Now that he understood. “I should probably go visit the kitchen.”

“Good luck with that. Claire’s in there. We call her Hooverlips.”

“That is hardly kind.”

“Maybe not. But true. She does love to eat.”

Dougal spotted another dust whorl and shot off in yet another direction. The leash wound around their legs and they, perforce drew closer. And damn, he loved the feel of her pressing against his chest and groin, her smile, her laugh as she fell against him.

She gazed up into his eyes and said, “I think we’re trapped.”

“I think so too.” But he could hardly complain. Until she tried to wiggle free.

Then again, he did like the wiggling.

They both laughed as they became even more inextricably entwined and then, all of a sudden, Porsche froze. Her gaze, wide and welcoming, snapped to his. “Oh, kiss me now,” she gushed and his heart thumped. She wrapped her arms around his neck and went up on her tiptoes and pursed her lips.

Though he was hardly disinclined, he was surprised. What had incited this sudden and incongruous passion? He stared at her in shock as his body went on point, hummed, trilled with exhilaration and excitement.

“Hurry,” she said. “He’s watching.”

He’s watching.

Well hell. His mood plummeted. He should have realized. He should have expected as much. He was a fool for thinking she suddenly wanted to kiss him.

He was struck with an immediate anger, and at the same time, a scorching determination.

Kiss her?

He’d give her a kiss she would never forget.

He took her cheeks in his hands and tipped her head a bit to the side and stared at her. “Are you ready?” he asked in a whisper.

She blinked. “I…ah…yes.”

But still, he waited, staring at her lips, so full and lush. He’d waited so long to taste her, the anticipation itself was delicious. Slowly, he lowered his head and he brushed his mouth over hers, a tease and nothing more. Then he did it again.

Good God, she was delectable. Soft, sweet, a velvety heaven. She tasted of sugar and a hint of chocolate with an undertone of…Porsche. He wanted to sink into her. Consume her.

So he did.

He deepened the kiss, investing in it all his desire, his hope, his passion.

And God help him, she responded.

She tightened her hold and pressed against him and made little mewling sounds that set his body on fire.
He leaned into the kiss, bending her back, grasping for all he could reach.

It became a conflagration, a wild storm swirling them both in a savage whirlwind of gargantuan proportions that was—

“Ahem.”

An annoying voice came from his left. Brandon attempted to ignore it.

“Ahem!”

He lifted his head and stared down into Porsche’s eyes. He was gratified that she seemed dazed and boneless. Really gratified when she reached up for another kiss. And that, of course, set him off again as well. He couldn’t get enough.

Not ever.

“Hello? People? That’s good. You can disengage.”

Claire—for that was who it was—attempted to pull them apart.

“But Cody’s watching,” Porsche murmured, snuggling in closer.

“He’s gone.”

To Brandon’s disgruntlement, she eased back, still staring into his eyes. “He’s gone,” she whispered.

“I heard,” he said. But he couldn’t resist one more kiss. Just one.

And damn it all to hell. Why hadn’t Cody stayed just a little longer?

Elite Ghosts

For more than two years they’ve been ghosts. Nothing but names on empty tombstones. Men and women forced to fade into the background after being pulled from the rubble. Dead Marines saved from a fate worse than death, but ordered to stand down while their lives disappeared all around them.

Some knew it could happen if a mission exploded. Double crossed by more than just Red Wolf. But now is their time to be reborn from the flames of a Phoenix. No longer imprisoned in the shadows. A half-life between them and their future. To make things right coming back to life is their only option.

Loyalty is their salvation but damage is always more than skin deep.

A new hope. A new family. Elite Ghosts.

Target: Tungsten

by Heather Long

 

blurb-fall-sm

Bradley “Tungsten” Peck. Marine. Lover. Friend. He’s the man who can get anything, find anyone, and accomplish every goal. At least he was, before he lost the only woman who mattered…he won’t stop until he gets her back or she puts a bullet in him.

 

review-fall-sm

This story starts the second chapter for the Elite Warrior Series.

When the ghosts removed their masks, I think my heart stopped for a moment. When Copper locked eyes with HIM, Tungsten/Brad, I thought my heart would break. Gabriel and Sachi are so good together, I couldn’t grasp the possibility they could end because of Brad. That he had been there all along with the others, watching and protecting and never said a word. Even Merc/John didn’t trust Tungsten/Brad, and they had been friends.

Oddly enough I trusted that something good would come out of this difficult situation.

As the story unfolds with Sachi, Gabriel and Brad in an isolated cabin in Montana, and John keeping watch outside. Deep cover to protect them from someone looking diligently for Brad and possibly Sachi.

But before they can pursue a mission, Sachi either has to choose or they need another plan. This is part of one of my favorite conversations with John and Sachi while they were on a run.

“I don’t want to choose between them. She didn’t and she wouldn’t. In some ways, she’d made her choice. Gabriel allowed Brad to be a part of them, Gabriel let him in, and she embraced the choice because Gabriel saw what she needed. If she had to choose…

“I suppose this means I have to keep his sorry ass alive.” John shook his head at her. “Two men?”

“I’m a demanding woman, what can I say?”

“Greedy bitch.” But he said with a hint of a smile. “Fine. I’ll keep the jackass alive. But one fucking step out of line…”

Closing the distance between them, she gave him a hug. “Yeah, yeah. They’ll never see you coming.”

 The question is can the men share her long term? Can she accept them both for forever?

What ensues is a sizzling hot relationship, followed by a yet another difficult mission. I couldn’t stop reading, I had to know what would happen next.

Zinc’s Heart

by Rebecca Royce

blurb-fall-sm

Zinc has nothing to prove–and everything to lose.

review-fall-sm

Zinc wanted one thing from Steele when he took off his mask, the answer to a question. The question – Why did you leave me behind? Like all the other Zinc lost much when he became a Ghost. Only he didn’t have the years of freedom the others had in between.

What happens when it wasn’t answered immediately was painful for both of them. Steele with a broken face literally, that required surgery and Zinc with no relief from the physical and emotional pain.

This book takes off quickly and Zinc’s mission is to get Steele’s sister Sarah out of the clutches of one of Red Wolf’s minions. Walter David. David is, among other things, a stop on the human trafficking pathway.

Sarah a CIA agent was taken for asking the wrong kind of questions about her brother Steele and Zinc’s deaths. Questions that led her to Red Wolf.

Zinc had always been attracted to Sarah, but she was off limits because of being his best friends sister. Now she was being held a sexual captive. His mission is to get her out. A mission that rapidly goes to hell.

Forced to bail on the plane after discovering Titanium’s pilot was working with Red Wolf. Then not able to return to headquarters because of possible infiltration. Sarah and Zinc/Zach are on the run until it’s safe to go in.

Zinc has migraines and issues with wrong words after one due to his healing brain. A favorite passage is from the first stop on their journey.

“Do you know what I meant although I said the wrong thing? Probably if I try to self correct over the next few minutes I will continue to misspeak. So, I’m hoping you know what I…”

As an answer, she placed the keycard in his outstretched hand. “Don’t worry, I speak Zach.”

He laughed at her response, the reaction catching him by surprise. “Then you’d be the only one. I’m not sure I speak me anymore.”

Sarah has always fantasized about Zach, she figured she wasn’t his type.  She couldn’t have been more wrong.  These guys fall hard and fast, Zach is no exception.

The action is intense and the sex is hotter than hot. And all that’s before her brother finds out.

Lithium’s Rescue

by Sabrina York

blurb-fall-sm

He will save her…unless she saves him first.

review-fall-sm

Marilyn is an analyst for a high tech company with government contracts. When she discovers her boss is committing treason, she contacts an old family friend.

When he fails to show, she learns how far reaching her boss’ arm really is. He was watching and listening to her in her home and is sending someone to collect her.

Lithium is sent to collect an informant, and get her safely to headquarters. However, her boss has everyone one of his employees wired and tracked with some very high tech gadgets.

A favorite passage is a conversation they have while traveling to an airstrip.

“Aside from all that, I suspect you’re a perv.” This, she said in a soft, teasing tone.

“I’m not a perv.”

“You made me strip.”

“You were covered with trackers.”

“You watched.”

“I needed to make sure we got them all.”

“”Do you suppose there was one up my ass?”

“Do you want me to check?”

That shut her up. It was a long while before she said, “You rubbed your erection against me.”

“I did not.” His neck heated.

“You did too. Back there in the stairwell. I felt it.”

Prickles danced on his spine. “I was not rubbing my erection against you. I was trying to make you shut up.”

“Is that how you make a woman shut up? A coo. “Rub your cock against her?”

“The idea has merit.” Oh yeah. He could visualize just the thing. The perfect way to make her shut up. Probably not a good idea while he was driving.

I love Marilyn, so much spunk, and Lithium just falls into her traps. Good thing she’s not a bad guy.  Lots of heat in more ways than one. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.

Thallium’s Submission

by Anna Alexander

blurb-fall-sm
From now on the only orders he will follow are hers.

review-fall-sm

A witness against a gang helping Red Wolf by providing a safe transport from Dallas to Mexico, is due to testify, against her ex-husband, the leader of the gang. Being under protective custody, in a safe house with two Texas marshals isn’t enough. There is a contract out on her and they won’t stop looking until the threat to their passageway is eliminated.This book explodes with action practically from the first page.  The bad guys show up at the same time as the Elite crew and getting Athena out safe becomes difficult.

I mean really who do you trust when everyone around you is shooting?

After a second location is compromised, Thallium takes off with Athena and disposes of all tracking devices even his own. His only thoughts to keep her safe and off the grid until the trial. The man has some pretty cool secrets.

One of my favorite scenes is their first morning together and it begins to show Thallium’s deep need to take care of her in other ways than just protection.

“Don’t get up on my account. I can take care of myself. Besides you need rest too.”

“I want to take care of you. Why don’t you go freshen up while I start b-breakfast?

I need to do a thorough check of  our provisions anyway. Make sure we have everything we need for the next two weeks. I bought you some clothes, but…”

“But what?”

He glanced away as a bit of pink hit his cheeks. “I like the way you look wearing my t-shirt.”

Oh, yeah. She was going to enjoy their time in captivity.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” she said, and picked up the bag he had placed by the front door. “I won’t be long.”

From here on it gets really interesting. I loved the build of this relationship. It’s sweet and it’s hot and you almost forget for a moment there is danger.

Nickel’s Wounds

by Saranna DeWylde

blurb-fall-sm

Hell hath no fury like a Marine who’s lost her way. Beauty was once her currency, but for a woman who can’t feel anything but agony, she has nothing left. Except the vengeance that could destroy the one man whose love could teach her how to save herself.

review-fall-sm

Nickel’s wounds are much deeper than the external ones and not all are from her service. Her need for revenge is intense and in this offering of the series we see the characters as who they once were as well as who they are today.This passage is from Marcus’ thoughts after giving Katarina a massage to help her pain. It really brings his devotion to her and her trust in him to the forefront.

When not on a mission, he preferred to sleep naked, but he changed in to a pair of boxer briefs and slid in to the bed.

She sighed in  her sleep and turned into him, blanket wrapped tightly around herself.

They’d slept together on missions, had huddled together for warmth and safety.

But this was the first time she’d fallen asleep after her massage, in his bed, and had asked him to stay with her.

He stared out into the darkness for a long time before he slept. As close as he was to her at the moment, within a breath of touch, he’d never felt farther away.

Marcus/Tin has to go back to his roots as a gang member to secure an invitation to  Fedir Yukodvich’s Clubhouse . To attend a gathering of heavy hitters in human trafficking buying and selling. The problem, he has to go  in with Nickel/Katarina and is afraid the mission will throw them both into a place from which they will never recover.

Katarina knows this mission can change the two of them forever, but she never imagined the depth of those changes. She gets pain at touch but still uses her body in missions by turning herself off, her way of surviving. Only Marcus can touch her without that pain most times, and only because of their deep, trusting, friendship.

This book had me crying and holding my breath a good deal of the time.  Very emotional and very tense read. I loved and felt every single word.

5 Contented Purrs for Saranna!


Titanium’s Sacrifice

by Jennifer Kacey

blurb-fall-sm

Titanium. Warbucks. Commander. Brother. He is all of those things. And none of them. Giving up everything to save the men and women under his command was easy until it comes to one…last…sacrifice

review-fall-sm

Titanium’s story is perhaps the most emotional of all of the previous. In this one we learn why Titanium is so invested in bringing down Red Wolf, why he has no choice. It caused my heart to ache as I read the explanation as given to Chrome and Steele. The betrayal by one of their own, brought to light as well as the reasons behind Elite Recon being formed and how and why everyone was extracted instead of just Titanium’s team.

We meet Charles the man behind Titanium, the one who takes the weight of the world and his teams on his shoulders with only Poppy, Raine and his precious dog Annie as his support system.

We discover the secret longing Raine has for her charge and see her complete devotion to him not only as a patient but as a man. One of my favorite scenes is when the team gangs up on him and gifts him with a way to ride on a motorcycle again. Which leads to the admission of his love and lust for Raine. This is a little peek.

The crank of the engine turning over and the throaty growl bouncing around the hangar sucker punched him in the gut.

“Coming?” She asked louder than the last time to be heard over the call of the bike. “I’ve been riding for years if it makes you feel any better. No one else is here so it’s totally up to you. No one will make you feel bad if you don’t come.”

“None but those who have bets placed on whether or not I’ll pussy out.”

Her laugh sounded like sex with the purr of the engine seducing him. “Well, there is that but you can deal with them tomorrow. I can handle a big machine between my legs.” She didn’t pause for him to make some funny retort at her innuendo, not that he could have, since his mouth had gone dry. “Take a walk on the wild side, Charles. I promise to keep your virtue safe.”

He took a step forward, reaching for her, and then another.

Her palm slid along his, guiding him behind her. She was already seated and he swung a leg over the seat and sat down. Tucking up close behind her, there was no way she could miss he was hard. “And what about your virtue? Who will protect yours while we’re out?”

So many secrets are revealed on the difficult road leading all of them slowly and somewhat painfully to become a family not by blood but choice.

A story that brings tears and laughter, pain and healing. Keep the tissues close, you’ll need a lot of them.

Bravo, Jennifer! A fitting close to this installment of the Elite Warrior Series. I can’t wait to see what’s next for these amazing men and women.

Elite Metal

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.

Duty is their salvation.

A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.

The mission is to take down Valdimir Babikov AKA Red Wolf. Steele is in charge of the mission even though most of his team is on leave. A bad feeling, a missing informant and Operation Phoenix went totally FUBAR.

Forced underground by the government, the surviving members of Elite Recon are scattered. Steele lives with the pain of seeing his best friend Zane die during that mission. Zane’s dog tags are still around his neck a reminder of his vow to one day get revenge. Then he is taken by an unknown benefactor and set on a mission to bring down the one who tipped off Red Wolf on that fateful day.

Alayna was on the run for two years, labeled a traitor and in fear for her life. Then the benefactor and creator of Elite Metal brought her into the fold. Now she would be paired with Steele to bring down the bastard who blew her cover and finally have peace with what had happened.

This is a favorite scene as they prepare for their mission.

Revenge for his brothers and have this beautiful woman under his command? His arousal returned tenfold and before he thought better of it, he picked up the velvet box closest to him and lifted the lid. A shiny solitaire diamond in a silver setting winked at him in the glow of the computer monitors.

An invisible band wrapped around his chest and squeezed as he held out the ring to Alayna. “I believe this is for you,” he choked out.

Her hand trembled ever so slightly as she reached for the box, then looked up at him with eyes large and smoky with both uncertainty and longing.

His cock hardened further as she slid the ring onto her finger, and he reached for the long box. Inside lay a collar made of braided leather in black with a ruby circle in the center. On either side of the ruby were silver circles, large enough to snap the latch of a leash onto.

Alayna gasped and the rise and fall of her chest picked up as she gazed at the collar in his hands. The tip of her tongue swept across her full lips and his cock kicked in response ready for the touch of her mouth.

Fuck it all. He may have found the mission to finally kill him. But hell, what a way to go. “Can you do this, Alayna? Can you submit to me?” With the stakes this high, he was going to push her past the point of no return if it got them their man. “Do you want to continue?”

She glanced at the ring on her finger then straightened her spine as she looked him in the eye. “I do.”
Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (p. 29). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

A fast paced sexy drama, one that allows Steele to show his true Dominant nature with a very hot natural submissive. All while on a mission to get Red Wolf’s number one guy.

This is the beginning of getting the survivors of that fateful mission back together.

Chrome’s Salvation

by Jennifer Kacey

SummerSm Blurb

A former leader of Elite Recon, reduced to nothing more than an apathetic existence. Until his girl’s life hangs in the balance…now nothing will stand in the way of him coming back to life.

SummerSm Review

 

There was something about the woman with the screaming child next him on the plane. Almost like she called out to him for protection. Chrome knew it was crazy, yet he followed and watched her until she reached her car.

The next thing he knows he is drugged and waking up bound to a chair with a hood over his face. Yes, there is a theme here, a necessary one.

Chrome didn’t want to join, just like Steele in the beginning. The circumstances and the mission were enough to convince him.

Cammie, the woman from the plane, is the director of a very successful international adoption agency. One Red Wolf wants to exploit with the worst sort of human trafficking. To obtain her cooperation he kidnapped her twin siblings and sent Korovin to convince her to turn over her databases.

Cammie and Chrome meeting is a favorite scene this is a small part of it.

Her instant trust in him filled something up in him he didn’t want to admit was empty. A void he’d lived with so long it was a part of him.

A big part.

“We’ll get them back.” The words came from him. He didn’t even remember his head telling his lips to move. But they were the truth and he stuff by them.

“How can you be so sure?”

He admired that she didn’t just take him for his word. This was too important to bluster over. “These men— the ones who took your siblings— are the lowest of the low. No conscience, no remorse. It makes them cold and calculating. But money and power don’t keep you warm at night. We have reasons we’re fighting. We have reasons why we’ll win. Fate. Karma. Those ass holes are going to be meeting both. Soon. And I’m going to personally make sure they’re introduced.”

She still seemed uncertain.

Then and there he made a second promise to himself that he’d take down Korovin and Red Wolf in the process. On his fucking own. The world would be a better place without them. He palmed her cheek. “And one other reason.”

“What’s that?”

“I promise. And I never break a promise.”
Kacey, Jennifer, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 137-138). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Somehow watching Chrome fall in love is very amusing, especially as he unsuccessfully tries to fight it. The interaction between him and Cammie is heartwarming. Cammie’s devotion to her kids, her siblings is as if they had been born to her, not adopted.

Between the mission itself and the sizzling hot sex, this story steamed off the page.

Adamantium’s Roar

by Anna Alexander

SummerSm Blurb

Adamantium left Beth to what he thought was a better life, only to find she had been living in hell. Now he’ll do anything, break any vow, to claim her as his for all time.

SummerSm Review

The last person Ant expected to see in the Bare Bones Bar is Beth, especially not in the clutches of a sleazy bookmaker. He knows he has to get her away, in a backwards kind of way it’s his fault.

Beth doesn’t want to be rescued, she’s scared to death of Chesterfield. She is nothing but a possession to him, one that owes him money because of her late husband.  Two more years and she would be free of her debt. Then she can start over.
Ant didn’t waste any time finding her, this is one of my favorite scenes.

Crack! Boom!

The back door flew open in a shower of splinters and slammed into the wall with enough force to shatter the nearby window.

She sat up with a startled shout and stared in shock and awe at the vision of Adamantium standing in the doorway with a determined set to his jaw and an unwavering dominance shining in his eyes. He had strapped a gun belt around his lean waist and a Kevlar vest hugged his chest. With the sunlight streaming in behind him, he looked like an avenging angel, and he was on a mission hell-bent on salvation.

The heavy clomp of his boots on the tile echoed in her ears like bass drums as he strode toward her. His big hand reached for her and grabbed her sleeve, jerking down with a vicious twist and ripping the cloth off her arm before tossing it aside. The brush of the cool air-conditioned air on her overheated flesh broke her reverie.

“What the fuck are you doing?” she shouted.

“Kidnapping you,” he replied with all seriousness as he snagged her wrists in one hand and bound her with a plastic zip-tie he withdrew from his back pocket.

“Are you insane?”

“Nope.” He dropped her hands then swept his arm across the counter, sending the coffee maker and canisters flying in all directions. “If I make it look like you didn’t go willingly, Chesterfield has no reason to go after your daughter.”

“You don’t know that.”

“It’s all I’ve got to work with. And I’m not leaving you behind. Trust me on this, sunshine.”

“Trust you? Upfh—” He stuffed a bandanna in her mouth and tied the ends around the back of her head. “I’ll explain when we get someplace safe, but go ahead and start fighting me now. It’ll make all this look more believable.”

Sweet baby Jesus. He was insane. Did he take one too many concussive blows to the head in the military?
Alexander, Anna, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 228-229). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Then the fun really begins. Not only has he upset the apple cart but it seems Chesterfield has connections to Red Wolf. On top of that it seems his Beth has some kinky proclivities that he needs to learn to satisfy.

Some very, very hot bondage and spanking scenes. Seeing Ant as a fledgling Dom was eye opening. Most of the Doms I have read are already established, so this was really a treat!

Pure Copper

by Heather Long

SummerSm Blurb

 

Copper will do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it means seducing and betraying the one man who really sees her.

SummerSm Review

 

Copper is the only woman on the team, but don’t tell her that. Operation Phoenix took away more than just her identity and her teammates it also took her love. Brad was a member of that team that didn’t make it back. She owes Red Wolf revenge.
Merc has been her best friend since childhood and as fate threw them together on the teams, he is also her self appointed protector.

Gabriel Daniels is retired CIA, now teaching with no hope of finding the mysterious beauty that caught his eye. First in Miami and then again in Nigeria she slipped by him, but he sees her, recognizes what few can. Then she walks into his classroom, is he her next target?

This is a favorite scene that takes place shortly after their initial meeting.
“Damn, Copper. If I was so bad you’ve forgotten me in a couple of hours, why don’t you make our lunch date a dinner one instead, so I can do better?”

Amused in spite of herself, she took a sip of her coffee to keep from smiling. “I’m a big believer in first impressions counting.” And he had made a hell of a first impression.

Currently, her body was very interested in seconds.

“Funny, I agree with you. Have dinner with me.”

“No.” She took another drink.

“Fine, I’ll have dinner with you.” Easy charm rolled in those syllables, and she actually had to bite the inside of her lip to not laugh.

“Still a no,” she managed. Across the table, Merc had gone predator silent and his stare drilled into her. No way should she be having this conversation in front of him.

“Dessert?”

The woman who’d played with Gabriel in the lecture hall would have chuckled. Copper refused. “Do you have an issue with the word no?”

“Only when it conflicts with my being able to see you again.” Gabriel sighed.
Long, Heather, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 342-343). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Oh the tangled web we weave as Copper and Gabriel both struggle to have something they want, each other.

These two are explosive together, and Merc as always tries to protect her yet stay away. Totally in love with this couple and the rest of the team as well.

Sterling’s Seduction

by Sabrina York

SummerSm Blurb

When a snoopy reporter threatens the Elite Metal, Sterling will do whatever it takes to kill her story about the team. Even if it means he has to tie her to his bed.

SummerSm Review

Veronica Banks is researching something she shouldn’t. Posing as a waitress at Bone Daddy’s, she is gathering information about a possible elite military group north of Deep Ellum, Texas. What she didn’t expect was to be recognized for what she really is, a reporter.

Sterling couldn’t believe it when he saw her. This reporter had outed a star while he was working in California, her being here was dangerous to them and her. First he has to prove he is right and fight his attraction to her at the same time. Unfortunately
for both of them he found that proof within minutes after seducing her. Here is a favorite scene.

He knew he might not be able to save her from inciting her own destruction— she was far too stubborn and outspoken and fierce for that— but he could try. He had to.

True to form, she took in every detail as they passed the airfield, the living quarters and the man house, which held the rec room, communal kitchen and boy toys. He didn’t care, because this was the skin of the operation and as innocuous as it could get. The meat of the operation was all hidden beneath the surface.

He parked her car inside the hangar so it couldn’t be spotted from the air, and got out, coming around to take her arm. Her glare made it clear she neither wanted nor needed his help.

But it was more than help and they both knew it.

Though she couldn’t escape— not now that he had her here— she might try. He tightened his grip as a warning to belay any such thoughts.

“Where are you taking me?” she asked as he pushed the button for the elevator down to the command center.

He shot her a dark look. “Where you wanted to go.” He herded her onto the elevator and fitted his key into the slot, then pushed the button marked CC. As the doors closed she pulled away from his hold and crossed her arms. A classic defensive pose. A pointless one too. Crossed arms could not protect her. Not from this.

She blew out a breath as the elevator descended. “I can’t believe you actually kidnapped me.”

“Really, Roni?” He shot her a look. “What did you expect? That I would roll over and tell you everything you wanted to know? Just because you’re phenomenal in bed?”

Her features softened, but only a smidgen. “Do you really think I’m phenomenal in bed?”

He didn’t answer. And not just because he knew they were being watched. Not because he knew every word was being recorded. But because her expression, that flicker of hope and the slash of regret he felt as a result of it, clogged his throat.

When she sidled up next to him and purred, “You were phenomenal too,” he took it for what it was. A ploy. He responded with a disbelieving grunt. Her lashes fluttered. “Well, you were. I just… I just wanted you to know that.”

“Thanks.” Only a hint of sarcasm.

She put out a lip. “You should know, I’d decided not to follow up on the story.”
York, Sabrina, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 448-449). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

From here it gets even more complicated as the team learns of her motives and Sterling tries to find a way they can stay together.

Finding love is never easy, and love of a family member can cause anyone to do things they wouldn’t otherwise. I thoroughly enjoyed this story with all its emotional ups and downs and sizzling hot sex.

Platinum’s Choice

by Rebecca Royce

SummerSm Blurb

 

Platinum left the life he had with Rose in New York to rejoin his team and silence the nightmares from Operation Phoenix. But when Rose is forced to go on the run with Platinum’s hidden son, he will have no choice but to return to his old life and reclaim what he has ached for every day since. Red Wolf’s sniper wants to nudge Plat’s underbelly and they’re going to find out quickly how deadly he can be.

SummerSm Review

 

This one tugged at my heartstrings in so many ways. We do some now and then with this one giving insight to the thoughts and feelings of both Platinum and Rose.

Platinum has a son no one on the team knows about. He has been supporting him anonymously since he learned of his existence.
He accidentally met his teacher while watching his class in the playground from a bench across the way. Rose was everything he wanted in a partner. Then he was torn away from that life, back to his team and the quest to find and destroy Red Wolf.

Rose was angry, he vanished without a word. Now she’s afraid for Kent, his grandmother killed and the two of them being shot at. She took him to the safest place she could think of, her parents cabin. This is a favorite scene.

“Ms. Rose.”

She jumped at the sound of his voice. So intent on listening for noises outside, she hadn’t noticed Kent awakened.

“Sweetheart. Come here.” She extended her arms and he walked into them. He needed to stay close where she could grab him if necessary. If he moved around too much or she was out of range and something happened, she’d never forgive herself.

“It happened, really? My Maw Maw, she’s dead.” He hadn’t quite gotten rid of the lisp sound when he made his s sounds, although it was much better than when he’d been in her class. The act left the impression of his being much younger than his actual age.

She saw children two years younger than him every day. Still, Kent seemed very small to her.

“It did.”

“The woman police officer, she came through the door. Shot my Maw Maw and then she wanted me. I ran. I hid. And then you came.”

Exactly the way he told the story earlier. Starts and stops, not much detail to hold onto. His Maw Maw started medicating him earlier in the year to help with his focus, which would have to be wearing off soon. The fact he’d slept at all surprised her. Trauma could trump anything going on in the body, it seemed. She’d never needed him to take medication when he’d been in her class. Since he was older, and the work was more taxing, the teachers complained more. Who was she to judge? She liked Kent focused or inattentive. Either way, he was a great kid.

“We’re going to be okay.” Lying to him seemed the kindest thing she could do.

“You always told us not to fib.”

She squeezed his arm. “Smarty-pants. Don’t you think I can figure out what to do?”

He was silent for a while and when he spoke again, his words surprised her. “Maybe we can call my dad.”

“Your dad?” The day must really be taxing him. “Kent, your father died before you were born. In Afghanistan. He was a marine and he didn’t come back home. You’ve never met him.”

“They were lying when they told me those stories. I’ve always believed my daddy’s alive.”

“I don’t think they were.” Nothing could be more heartbreaking than a child’s wishful thinking such as the father he’d never known swooping in and saving the day. Why not expect Prince Charming to show up and do it on his white horse? Or Elijah Jones to suddenly appear on her doorstep begging forgiveness with a completely acceptable reason for disappearing the day. Why not expect Prince Charming to show up and do it on his white horse? Or Elijah Jones to suddenly appear on her doorstep begging forgiveness with a completely acceptable reason for disappearing without a trace?

“I can always tell when someone is fibbing. Their voice sounds funny. I can’t focus on some things, like. History. Social studies. Blah. Only details make sense to me. I can hear things. See them. My Maw Maw used to sound different in the way she talked about my dad. She thought the money must be coming from somewhere. I heard her on the phone. She tried to find out. Recently she hired someone to find out.”

These were questions Rose couldn’t deal with. If there were answers, she’d have to find them later.
Royce, Rebecca, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 522-523). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

The past hurtles into the present, the sniper’s thoughts, the heartbreak, and more. There is much to explain and so much to lose. I loved every word and every tear I shed.

Mercury’s Poison

by Saranna DeWylde

SummerSm Blurb

A scarred, mad genius more monster than man must protect the beauty he’s become obsessed with from a beast more terrible than himself.

SummerSm Review

Ah Merc, so damaged yet so lovable. Just not willing to let folks in. Only Copper can see beyond the façade into his soul. At least that is truth until Hazel, Dr Hazel Brewer does emergency medicine but she also does work with the homeless and underprivledged with a Medical van out of the hospital she works at.

Since Merc has discovered her in not so safe areas, he keeps watch at a distance. Attracted without knowing why, other than a need to keep her safe. We first see them together early in this book, she has taken the van out alone. After taking care of business he heads out to her. Not meaning to engage in any sort of contact but to send her on her way. Unfortunately he had some injuries so it wasn’t going to go quite as he planned. This is a favorite scene.

Hazel found she believed him. “Then how about you let me stitch up your cheek? If you can’t feel it, then you must not know the skin is gaping just a bit.”

“I can stitch myself.”

“The same as I can look out for myself?” She cocked her head to the side. “I can look out for myself, but you do a much better job doing it for me. So how about give me the same credit, eh?”

He opened his mouth, but then snapped it shut.

“Where do you want me?”

Everywhere? On top of me, pushing me down, pulling my hair… She crushed that thought out of her head. God, what was wrong with her? This was a creature in pain and all she could think about was putting her hands on him in a way that wasn’t at all about healing.

“Oh wait, I won’t even have to use a needle. I’ve got some tissue adhesive.” She smiled.

“Save the adhesive for someone who’s worried about looking pretty. I’ll take the needle.”

“I have plenty and it’s cheap. Sit down, big guy. I can’t reach.” She could, if she had to. But she wanted to make sure she did a good job and she wanted the opportunity to study him further.

He sat down on the back of the truck, the rear of the vehicle depressing with his weight.

She fumbled in her pocket and came out with the small tube. “See?” Hazel grabbed a few alcohol wipes. “This might sting, but I have to clean it up.” She was gentle as she wiped away the blood, cleared the gore from his skin. That was when she realized it wasn’t all his, but that wasn’t a surprise.

“What’s your name?” she asked as she worked. She always spoke with patients while she administered to them, but this was one she’d always remember, she was sure.

“John,” he answered, quiet.

“John Doe?” she teased. Hazel should’ve expected that one. Of course he wasn’t going to give her his real name. A lot of them didn’t. Especially the ones she gave Methadone to.

“No, John Thrace.” He said this as if it cost him something to confess.

She found herself wanting to reassure him. Wanting to make sure he was safe. But that was a screwed up way to think, she was sure. He was probably the safest man on the planet. But so far, her intuition hadn’t led her astray. “I’ll keep your secrets, John Thrace. I swear.”

“You should be afraid of me.”

“Why?” She lined the wound with the pharmaceutical grade sealant and closed his wound.

“Because I kill people.”

Hazel stopped what she was doing and stared at him hard. In those beautiful eyes were pools of pain. They were so deep she knew she could drown there, and in turn, if he held all of that inside of him, he was drowning too. But maybe he didn’t even know it.
DeWylde, Saranna, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 591-592). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Hazel sees so much of him, yet she can’t seem to break through all his layers. Yet he gave her his name, his real one. I found myself rooting for her even as he pushed her away. I even wished I could smack some sense into his hard head. I even fell more in love with Gabriel and Copper in this one, since Merc’s interactions with Copper are so imbued in his nature.

The circumstances that keep Merc and Hazel in close proximity is a page turner with nail-biting intensity. I hung onto every word and nuance. I laughed and cried and needed some hydration reading this one.

Forged in Silver

by Roxie Rivera

SummerSm Blurb

Rebel. Nomad. Troublemaker.

SummerSm Review

The last member of this team to be acquired isn’t one who is welcome. He broke the rules, went rogue and used his abilities to steal and profit. Now he has a chance to redeem himself. Chrome doesn’t want him but Steele has asked for him. Warbucks gave the order and now he was in. Well sort of, he has to prove himself before he can join them at headquarters.

Poppy has detailed the conditions and sent him on his way. One of my favorite scenes is as Warbucks and Poppy watch him ride away.

Heart still racing from her brief encounter with Silver, Poppy peered through the binoculars to see how he would react to finding his motorcycle waiting for him. When the orders had hit her desk to take him down and bring him in, nothing had been said about his bike, but after reading through his file, she had suspected he might be more amenable to this new arrangement if she located and serviced it for him. Judging by the way he caressed the seat, she had been right.

Watching him run his hands over his favorite possession sent a warm shiver of something dark and needful right down to her core. She had no problem imaging him running those big, strong hands over a woman’s body. He moved like a sculptor working his clay into something beautiful, his swiping motions smooth and easy.

Never in her life had a man affected her like this! One sinful smile from him, and a low, throbbing heat had rolled through her lower belly. The photos attached to his file hadn’t prepared her for the devilishly handsome and incredibly charismatic man she had met.

He made me laugh.

It was such a simple thing, laughter, but it had thrown her for a loop. Men didn’t make her laugh. Men didn’t make her smile. More often than not, they made her frown. Silver had frustrated her, but he’d also teased and unsettled her.

He’s dangerous.

She didn’t mean dangerous in the usual sense. Oh, he was a highly-skilled and deadly operator, all right. But he was more dangerous to her in a way that had nothing to do with covert ops.

He’s tempting.

“I think he’ll be easier to control once we figure out what he wants.” Lowering her binoculars, Poppy glanced away from the shrinking image of Silver tearing down the road on his bike. “Every person you’ve asked to join the team has wanted something— a home, a family, a purpose, revenge. We just have to figure out what Silver craves above all things.”

Warbucks stared in her direction in that cool, penetrating way she had learned to read at such an early age. Even though his sight had been destroyed, he still managed to unsettle her with one look of silent warning. “And what happens if the one thing he craves is the one thing we can’t buy or provide?”

Poppy shot her longtime mentor and the only man she had ever trusted a disbelieving look. “We’ve yet to find one thing we couldn’t acquire.”

“There’s a first time for everything, kid.” Warbucks leaned back in his seat. With a little wince, he stretched out his legs. The trim fitting chinos he wore deftly camouflaged the prosthetics that had been painstakingly measured and altered and designed to provide him with near-perfect mobility.

A warm feeling invaded her chest. She smiled at the man who had been her guardian and protector since childhood. “It’s been a long time since you’ve called me kid.”
Rivera, Roxie, Elite Metal: Eight-Novel Cohesive Military Romance Boxed Set (Elite Warriors Book 1) (pp. 675-676). Never Settle Publishing. Kindle Edition.

The monthly status reports had me giggling, lots of flirting by Silver with lots of rejection from Poppy. Silver couldn’t get her out of his mind and Poppy appears to have the same problem.

I honestly have to say I felt sorry for Silver. Sure he needed to prove himself, but keeping him away for so long, I thought was wrong.

When Poppy goes off into a situation not sanctioned by Warbucks and definitely unknown to the teams. It falls to Silver to aid her or get her out. These two are an explosion waiting to happen.

So many things come to light and a true, OMG, did that just happen?

So off you must go and get the next book Elite Ghosts.

The last thing officer Charlie Dunham expects when he returns to his hometown is to tangle with his high school crush, Claire Silver, right off the bat. He’d planned to ignore her entirely— the way she’d always ignored him. But when a mysterious threat puts her in danger, he must step in and save her. It doesn’t take long for him to realize that he’s been lying to himself about his feelings for Claire. He wants her… no matter the cost.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Gosh I love the prequels to this new series. Hot sexy cowboys, on a ranch, doing your bidding. *Deep Sigh*

More than that, is the attraction that hasn’t faded over the years. If only Dustin could get over the fact that Claire would never be his. A favorite scene is the night after Charlie gave her a ticket his first day on the job. Right after Dustin steps in it.

Claire tipped up her chin and stared at the star-studded sky and unleashed a primal scream. It bounced off the buildings and annoyed several dogs in the opened her mouth and asked, “So do you have a girlfriend?”

Her heart stuttered when he stopped and turned to face her, set his hands on her shoulders and stared into her eyes.

“If I did, would I rescue maidens in distress?”

“I was hardly in distress. But yes. You probably would. You’re a war hero.”

“Am I?” “That’s what Cade says.” “Not dying doesn’t make you a hero, but you’re right. I suppose I would still rescue damsels if I had a girlfriend. But you know what I wouldn’t do?”

“What?” He was so close. His breath skated over her face. His heat reached out to enfold her like a blanket. “What wouldn’t you do?”

“I wouldn’t do this.”

To her shock and delight, he bent his head and he kissed her.
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Locations 16174-16187).Kindle Edition.

I didn’t expect a lot of this and I certainly didn’t expect the who. Lots of tension, hot sex and even hotter cowboys.

About the Hot SEALs Kindle World

With years of dedication to the Navy, SEAL Jon Rudnick and his teammates have confirmed one thing – they are not afraid to risk life and limb for their country. But when navigating military red tape begins to present more challenges than the enemy, this band of combat-hardened veterans is divided. While some remain actively serving, others take their drive, skills, and expertise to the private sector, where they form GAPS (Guardian Angel Protection Services). In these roles, will the SEALs fight for the women they love with the same vigor they use to seek out enemy threats? Which battlefield will you have them face next?

Interview

Please join me in welcoming

Maryann Jordan   Maryann Jordan

She graciously answered some questions for me about her writing.

What attracted you to writing about SEALs?

My last series was about a Special Forces team that retired from the Army and began a security firm. It may seem like an overdone theme, but there are so many readers that love this genre. My husband had been in Army Intelligence and I wanted to create a team of brothers that continued their service after retiring.

What’s a typical day of writing for you? Are you a planner or do you wing it?

I am a complete planner! I have to have everything plotted out. I start out with an idea, develop it, begin making notes about it. Create an outline, storyboards and then begin writing. The story may go in different directions after I begin writing and the characters talk to me, but I have to have a plan to begin.

How do you decide where your book will take place?

All of my books take place in Virginia (I’m a 30 year resident of VA and love it!) I create fictional cities, but many people familiar with Virginia will recognize the locations.

What is your favorite part of writing? What is your least favorite part?

Favorite part is the creative juices that bring fictional characters to life. Readers tell me that my characters appear to be people they would like to know. I do a lot of editing to make the writing as good as it can be and that can seem vary tedious. I get so nervous when I first send it to beta readers until I hear back that they like it!

What genres do you enjoy reading? Do you have any favorite authors?

My favorite genre is the one I like to write in – Romantic Suspense. Although, I began reading historical romances way back in the 1970’s and they hold a special place in my heart.
My all time favorite author would be the amazing Kristen Ashley. She writes with abandon…not following anyone’s rules of writing. I find it fresh, exciting, and completely captivating.
Amy Harmon’s Making Faces was an amazing contemporary romance and moved me to tears, which is hard to do!

Do you think that social media is important for an author to be involved in?

Extremely important, especially for indie authors. I need to connect with readers and have gained many new readers just by interacting with them on social media. I have readers who have read my books and write to tell me how they meant something to them, or a shared experience. I love this!

If you could be a character in a book, which one would it be, and what part would you play? (Romantic lead, sidekick, etc)

When I was a child and read (voraciously), I always put myself into the book during my playtime (or even daydreams). My Barbies became Nancy Drew (and her friends, George and Bess).
As an adult, I would love to be the romantic lead (never the sidekick). If I were to choose one of my books, it would have to be the first one I wrote, Emma’s Home. I could easily see myself as Emma, search for a place to put down roots…and meeting Jake would be the bonus!!

Revealing Love
Hot Seals/Saints Protection and Investigation
By

Blurb Spring Blog - Copy

A private investigation business, pulling together men from the CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, Border Patrol, SEALs, and police, devoted to the missions that no one else wanted or could solve.

Jude Stedson was a SEAL…at least until an injury while on a mission left him with an honorable medical discharge and no direction. He even relegated his girlfriend to friend only status until he could decide what he wanted to do with a life that had been dedicated to the SEALS.

Sabrina Taggart loved the man…not the career title. But until she could prove that their love would continue, she took the role of friend…just to stay close.

When a con artist set his sights on her family, Jude steps in, willing to work with her cousin, a member of the Saints P&I. Keeping Sabrina safe gave him a new mission. Discovering that mission gave him purpose. When her life was threatened, Jude knew that nothing would stop him from saving her…or admitting his love for her.

Can he prove that he has what it takes to be a Saint?

Review Spring Blog - Copy

I love books with strong women and Sabrina takes strong to a whole new level. Having been in a committed relationship with Jude before his injury she hasn’t wavered in her feelings for him at all. Even when he repeatedly pushed her away and was cruel she stood by him. Finally accepting the position of friend in order to stay close even though her love was stronger than ever.

Forced out of the SEALs by his injury, Jude is sailing a desk at Norfolk. Unhappy in his career and doubting his self-worth he is trying to find something that will make him worthy of Sabrina, the woman he loves beyond all reason.

Sabrina’s grandmother Amelia throws a party and Jude meets some interesting characters. Bart, Sabrina’s cousin who works for Saints Protection and Investigations introduces him to Jack his boss. They give him interesting alternatives to the boring job he is doing now. Former team members from all different branches working together as a cohesive unit to solve problems on and off the grid.

A con-artist using the premise of being able to contact their late husbands for investment advice, targets Amelia and some of her elderly friends. After consulting with Bart, Jude decides to do a bit of investigating of this Nastelli guy and see what the angle is. Better to bring him down before he ruins these lovely ladies. Sabrina, however, almost beats him to it. He spots her just before she does something incredibly dumb. This is a favorite scene that takes place the morning after he catches her.

“I just thought since you want to consider doing investigations as a possible job, then maybe you should get Bart or his boss, Jack, involved in how we should proceed with this mess.”

“We? Babe, there is no we in this.”

“You know what Jack said. If Nastelli gets a hint you’re checking him out then he’ll leave town. I thought you all wanted to stop him from doing this to other vulnerable women.”

“I know, but maybe I can convince him that I want to use his services.” Shaking her head, she said, “Look, Jude. I’ve been thinking about this. Nonnie has already talked to Mr. Nastelli about me and my trust. Maybe I could meet with him, convince him that I’m interested and see what that gets us.”

“Hell, no!” he shouted, sitting up in the bed. “I don’t want you near this guy!”

Arguing for several more minutes, Sabrina flopped back down on the bed in frustration. “Fine. Then talk to Jack. See what he thinks.”

Reluctantly agreeing, he called Bart later that morning, after she went to work, and within a few minutes had Jack on the line. Much to his chagrin, Jack agreed with Sabrina.

“Look, Jude. Do your research first when planning a mission. No con artist that is as good as this guy is, will ever talk to you. He’s smart and his self-preservation is at an all-time high. Tell you what, we’ll do a phone conference with you and my group when you get a little more information to see what the next course of action should be.”

Jude agreed, then called Sabrina back. “I’m going to work with Jack’s group on this and if, and only if, they think we have no other choice, then you can help.”

After getting her agreement to not act independently, he disconnected the call and leaned back on the sofa, running his hands through his hair once more. Jesus, Bart makes this sound so easy. Hell, so do Zane and Rick. If this is going to be my new career and keep Sabrina in my life… I’ve got to figure out how to make this work.
Hot SEALs: Revealing Love (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Saints Protections & Investigations Book 3) (Kindle Locations 753-772). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

A fast paced read, with lots of tense situations and plenty of hot sex. Plus the sexy men from two of my favorite agencies. A definite must read.

My SEAL Bodyguard by Paige Tyler

She writes about danger for a living and now she find herself in it. Only a Navy SEAL can save her.

When someone breaks into romance author Peyton Matthews’ Virginia Beach home to steal her newest manuscript, her publisher hires Noah Chase, a former Navy SEAL and the newest member of GAPS to be her bodyguard.

Peyton thinks the idea of needing a bodyguard is ridiculous, but she can’t help appreciating how gorgeous Noah is. And while she thought that having a stranger hanging around 24/7 would mess with her creativity, the Navy SEAL definitely comes in handy when she’s choreographing fight scenes.

All that hand-to-hand action and rolling around on the floor with him gets her pulse racing, but while Noah is falling for Peyton too, he doesn’t act on it. He needs to keep his head in the game and focus on the job or he could end up getting her killed. She might not think she’s in danger, but his gut tells him differently.

The threat to Peyton is closer to home than she realizes however, and it will take all of Noah’s SEAL training to save her life.

Protecting Julie by Susan Stoker

Susan StokerJulie Lytle is working hard to turn her life around. Being kidnapped by sex traffickers changed her drastically, but having grown up the spoiled daughter of a senator, Julie wishes she could’ve changed just a little sooner. Shamed by her behavior toward the woman rescued alongside her, and further embarrassed and guilt-racked over the way she treated the SEALs who risked their lives on her behalf, Julie is desperate to make amends.

With help from Missy Greenwood, a D.C. acquaintance who’d endured her own harrowing experience, Julie connects with Patrick Hurt, Commander of the SEALs who’d saved her life. If she can prove she’s not the same person who mistreated his team, he’ll grant her request to meet them—but not before the protective, sexy man makes a surprising request of his own.

**Protecting Julie is a Kindle World crossover novella with the SEAL of Protection Series and Cat Johnson’s Hot SEALs Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but we recommended reading the other books in the SEAL of Protection Series in order to get maximum enjoyment.

claimed-by-a-seal-mockup3Three years ago, Stacie Vandercoy was stuck undercover in Iraq for six months with Jeff “Rock Star” Lennon, the arrogant SEAL who thought he was God’s gift to women.

Jeff Lennon had been forced to do things he didn’t like as a Navy SEAL, and now as an agent for the terrorist division of Homeland Security’s Border Patrol. For years, his only real regret has been what he couldn’t to do to Stacie back in Iraq. He’s been given another chance to claim her heart, body and soul. In the meantime, they have to stop a terrorist attack somewhere in the Norfolk area, during Fleet Week.

Even the agency’s psychologist isn’t sure Stacie can pull off pretending to be Jeff’s wife. What lengths will Stacie and Jeff go to assure the mission’s success? And what will they both lose in the process?

Darwin’s Evolution by Siobhan Muir

12512524_523354934510697_938212629905457935_nSometimes retirement is a helluva lot of work…

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Sadie Hawkins is ready for a quiet life with her mother in northern Arizona. No more recon, no more shots fired. Hell, she might even give romance a try if she finds the right guy. Like the one asleep on her shoulder on the train.

Cyrus “Darwin” Finch retired from the Navy SEALs and now runs Ultimate Recon, a security, surveillance, and rescue company employing retired members of the four branches of the U.S. military. He’s on “forced” vacation and is supposed to relaxing, dammit. Until he meets Sadie.

When they discover a foreign enemy setting up a domestic retreat in Sadie’s backyard, romance and vacations take a backseat. There are no calm seas or clear skies with bullets flying, and no time for a Happy Ever After. But SEALs never give up and Marines never surrender.

I have always been an avid reader. I joke that I “cut my romance teeth” on the old bodice ripper romance books. Last year I started a blog to showcase wonderful writers. In 2014, I finally gave in to the characters in my head pleading for their story to be told. Thus, Emma’s Home was created.

I work as a counselor in a high school and have been involved in education for the past 30 years. I have been married to a wonderfully patient man for 32 years and have 2 adult, very supportive daughters. When writing, my dog or one of my cats will usually be found in my lap!

Donna Michaels

It’s all my mother’s fault. She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues that fed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. I’m a NY Times, USA Today, and Amazon Bestselling Award winning author. Phew, that was a mouthful! Multi-published in e-book and print with several publishers, I certainly have a ton of voices in my head.

I’m happily married to a military man for 28 years. We have four children and several rescued cats. Michael’s been in the Army National Guard since before he graduated. The Guard has been a part of our lives right from the start. It was only natural for the military to spill into my writing. God bless the military and their families. Thank you all for your sacrifices.

You already know my mom inspired my love of reading, but it was my dad who got me hooked on movies. Even now, if I had the time, I could happily go from one movie to another all day long. They are the reason I love mixed genre and why I can’t just stick to just one in my writing, although, as you can tell, I have a soft spot for cowboys and the military.

Well, that’s about it. Thanks for getting to know me a little better. Remember, keep reading to your children. The journey you’re igniting is precious. And the next time you’re at the movies, turn around. I just might be the person sitting behind you. No, not the one throwing popcorn (it’s too expensive to waste). I’m the one already imagining the sequel. Have a great day and thanks for reading!

KaLyn Cooper

Born and raised in a small town in New York close to the Pennsylvania line, we water skied in the summer months on the lake and snow skied all winter. One a cold January night while clomping through the lodge I literally ran smack into the man I’d eventually marry. His high school was ninety-six miles from mine but we made the long-distance relationship work.

While I was at Penn State, he went to the United States Naval Academy and chose the Marines upon graduation. I followed him throughout his military career living on Army, Air Force and Marine Corps bases, making sixteen moves and meeting some of the most wonderful people in the world.

Working in Public Relations all over the country and in Japan, I’ve written for international, regional and local corporations, non-profits and was a ghost writer. I won national awards for travel and tourism books and ghost written several self-help books but I hadn’t written fiction since college.

When we moved to East Tennessee for the second time, we built our house-and I mean we, my husband, our son and I-built this house from the studs in. As I hung insulation, painted, tiled and planted, I plugged into audio books and discovered I really enjoyed romantic suspense. In the evenings I read romance novels. By the time the house was ready for occupancy, I’d read over 300 books, mostly in the romance genre and suspense.

One night while my husband was working out of the country, I sat at the computer and started writing a book. I entered it in several writing contests and learned a lot from the critiques. I met romance writer Deborah Grace Staley who helped me tremendously. She told me my 125,000-word tome wasn’t one book but three and none were the first in what has become The Black Swan series.

I attended many conferences and craft workshops over the next year while pitching every chance I got. The Black Swan series garnered interest and notice enough to convince Emily Kim, owner of Prospect Agency, to become my agent. When I’d finished Explosive Combination, it had gained a life of its own in the Romantic Suspense genre. Emily and I separated it from the Black Swan series, which is in the Contemporary Romance category, and I sold Explosive Combination to Liquid Silver Books in November 2013. The first of the Black Swan Series should come out in 2016.

In December 2014, Christmas In Cancun was published by Liquid Silver, the first of a new series of Romantic Suspense books based in Cancun, Mexico. In April 2015 I self-published Conquered in Cancun followed by Captivated in Cancun in January 2016. I was honored to be invited to write in Cat Johnson’s Hot SEAL Kindle World and wrote Claimed by a SEAL – Cancun Crossover novella 2.5 released January 2016.

I have been married to the same man for over thirty-seven years. Our two children are grown but our son lives with us. Our daughter and her husband blessed us with a granddaughter a few years ago.

I still read over 100 books a year, mostly audio books, and write every day.

Winter Blog Review

I love that this story involves an “older” woman and a younger man. So often it is the other way around and that’s so unfair, at least in my eyes.

Catherine Hightower and her niece Paige run Flytower, the multimillion-dollar business created by her and her late sister Marla. Marla died in a mysterious accident, an accident Catherine believes was caused by her brother-in-law Steve. Her instincts tell her he would do anything to inherit the business, but she can’t prove it. Needing to be in Hong Kong for meetings, she hires a contingent of bodyguards for herself and Paige. All of them former SEALs provided by Guardian Angel Protection Services.

They are efficient and nice but one of them really gets under her skin, there is an attraction she only notices when he is close to her. Almost as if his eyes were on her and not the surroundings. In some ways she wishes it too, but she is so much older than him and that bothers her.

Lots going on in this one. Right off the bat we have one of the bodyguards hurt and in the hospital. Catherine in denial that it was an attempt on her life and the fun just begins. To quote Garrett  “Honestly, sometimes keeping track of her was like herding cats.”

The markets of Hong Kong play a big part in this. Catherine likes to visit them and they are a security nightmare. More attempts on her life, an orphan purse snatcher and Garrett who won’t give up on her. Not personally, not professionally.

So many tugs at the heartstrings and lots that turns up the heat.
