Cover Reveal ~*~ Finding Our Forever by Lan LLP

Finding Our Forever 
Forever #2 
Lan LLP 
Releasing Sept 2014

Tragedy Strikes Again

Now weaved into Carson Bradley's web of boundless wealth and pharmaceutical rivalries, Lillian Ly is altering the course of her bright academic future. She’s determined to follow the beat of her devoted heart even after a devastating loss she'd suffered as a result of a deliberate accident.  With two missing researchers whose survival is based on a drug formula that Carson is unable to deliver, he fears the kidnappers will stop at nothing to get what they want—meaning Lillian’s life is also in danger. 

Can they find their forever with all the danger that still lies ahead?

Guilt gnaws at his conscience with each passing day, but despite his shame, he still can’t let her go. She is the flame to his fire, the soul of his heart. Without her by his side, he is just a body without a warm pulse.  Desperate to obtain the missing drug components and keep Lillian safe, Carson becomes overbearing and unreasonable.  Lillian’s strong-will tears them emotionally apart, stirring thoughts of doubt for their future. She knows she loves him irrevocably, but can she survive in his volatile world?

Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen and wrote the first sentence of a fantasy that I’ve imagined ever since I was a daydreaming little girl—minus the steamy parts of course. That initial sentence was the seed that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart. If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I’ve succeeded my goal.

I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t laugh! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or Mr. Hot Billionaire in my book, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become your reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.

Review & Giveaway ~*~ From Indiana with Love by Sandra Sookoo

From Indiana with Love
By: Sandra Sookoo
Released July 2014

Being embroiled in an FBI sting isn’t exactly conducive for book research or warm fuzzies—or is it?
Samantha Arnold, prep cook and struggling romance novelist, believes adventure is right around the corner. Trouble is, nothing exciting happens in the small town of Newburg, Indiana. When a routine trip to pick up chicken results in meeting a guy too well-dressed to be a farmer, she can’t help but hope things are about to turn.

Special Agent Patton Mitchell isn’t exactly enjoying his stint in the farming community. The property he’s using as a home base adjoins that of his mark, and it also connects him with meek and mild Samantha. Her questionable Internet search history has triggered a visit from the NSA, which means him, and he’s not above a little flirting to get his answers.

Suddenly, small town life explodes into a story right out of Sam’s imagination, with intrigue, guns and betrayal to boot. What she thinks of as a madcap caper is a fight for life or death in Mitchell’s book. Between dodging bullets, chasing a would-be terrorist and dealing with drop-in relatives, there might just be a shot at romance—if the bad guys don’t get them first.

Review ~
From Indiana with Love is a funny and sweet romance that is perfect when you are looking for something a little different.

Samantha likes to write about heroes in her struggling career, but when she meets one in real life, she isn't quite sure what to make of him.  Everything seems surreal to her and while situations are life threatening to Special Agent Mitchell Samantha thinks of it as research and some crazy antics happen from there. 

I laughed several times throughout this story.  It is the perfect combination of humor, romance, an action to satisfy any reading binge you might go on.

Excerpt from Justine Elyot’s Night Swimming…

Everyone else is in bed.

You have slipped out of bed and into a floaty silk robe, leaving him asleep, exhausted by the exertions of the night before. You step out on to the balcony and note that the sky has that foreign, endless darkness so rarely seen in the city; only a sliver of moon interrupts it. The warmth of the day lingers in the air, accentuating the heavy scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. You stretch your limbs as you walk across the cool tiles, shaking out the weariness and muscle ache, but there is no escape from the telltale twinges. What would soothe where healing balms have failed?

Your eye travels downward to the moonlit pool. The faint lapping sound of the water entices you down the steps, lures you across the terrace until you are standing at the edge, looking down at the midnight ripples. Yes, this is what will ease your burning muscles.

You shrug off the gown and dip a toe in the shallows. It is not as warm as it would be by day, but the remains of the sun’s ferocity have kept the edge of cold away. You walk slowly down the gentle slope, feeling the water tickle and caress your feet, then your ankles, then your calves, then your thighs and then it is all over and around your naked body to chest height, comfortingly lukewarm.

You swish and swirl around for a minute or two, making waves and splashes, then you tilt backwards and float, relishing your weightlessness and the unusual opportunity to stare upwards without having to squint against the sun. You could not see them before, but now tiny silver puncture marks in the black silk sky glint and twinkle down at you. You drift around the pool like this, closing your eyes and letting the pleasant, heated memories of the last few days play against your eyelids until they start to merge and mutate and make no sense…you are almost asleep…

Something is making waves, threatening to capsize the vessel of your body, and you come to with a start, flapping with agitation and looking for the bottom of the pool with your feet. From behind, an arm grabs you about the waist, and a hand claps down on your mouth before you can squawk protest.

“Out for a little swim in the moonlight, are we?” murmurs a familiar voice into your ear, and your squirms lose their urgency, your screams turn to sighs. He removes his hand from your mouth and you turn your head so that your lips can meet his, kissing hungrily while he runs expert fingers over your slippery body, finally cupping your breasts and half-turning you around in the water, lifting your feet so that you are weightless. Now he and the water conspire to manipulate your body to his behest; he hoists you up so that you straddle his hips and he cradles your back loosely, encouraging you to bend over backwards so that your hair fans out like anemone fronds on the surface of the pool. He leans down over you and his tongue traces a path from the hollow of your throat, lapping at the dewy drops of water beaded on your skin, under the curve of your breasts, over the gentle bumps of your ribcage, lusciously licking around your navel while your legs thrash up wavy crests, disturbing the placidity of the surface.

“Enough of that,” his voice vibrates over your stomach before he rises up to his full height again, flipping you over so quickly that you almost swallow a mouthful of your aqueous surroundings. His hands hold firm on your haunches, thumbs spreading the insides of your thighs while your arms flounder, working to keep your head above water. Tiny wavelets of tepidity tickle at your open sex, then they are joined by a warm, flexible pressure and you half cry out, shuddering in delightful recognition of his tongue. It mixes with the water, lapping and drinking your diluted essence while his hands continue to hold you and open you further. You drown in the sensation, and almost drown for real when the intensity temporarily makes you forget to keep your face out of the water. Your hands splash at the water and your gargle out a blissful orgasm, undulating like a mermaid caught in the overwhelming current of his undivertable intent.

Cover Reveal ~*~ King Tomb by Scarlett Dawn

*Just a note, I adore this series and am waiting impatiently for King Tomb ~ if you haven't started it yet, I highly recommend picking up King Hall and King Cave*

From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the bestselling first Forever Evermore trilogy.

Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability.

When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller’s private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment.

They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can’t control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.

Guest Post & Giveaway ~*~ Sinful Rewards by Cynthia Sax

Sinful Rewards 1
By: Cynthia Sax
Releasing July 15th, 2014

Billionaires and Bikers
Cynthia Sax

When I told writing buddies that I had a serial subtitled Billionaires and Bikers, they laughed their fool heads off. Both types of heroes are trendy and I don’t write trendy anything. I try…sometimes but then my characters do what they like and what they like to do isn’t the usual biker or billionaire type of things.

Hawke, one of the heroes in Sinful Rewards, certainly isn’t the biker hero many of my fellow writers are crafting. He doesn’t break laws. He might bend them a little (he lives in Chicago so he doesn’t have to wear a helmet) but this former Marine, like almost every biker I know in real life, fought to uphold the American way, not destroy it.

Hawke doesn’t belong to a motorcycle club. He works with former veterans, supplying security services to the wealthy, and he hangs out at The Road Gator, a Chicago biker bar. He and his brothers-in-arms might not know a lot about women (that’s for sure - eye roll) but they respect and protect the fairer sex. He’s seen first hand how short life can be. He doesn’t waste a moment of it taking or dealing drugs.

I couldn’t convince him to ride the expected black Harley either. Hawke insists on riding a customized blue chopper. If anyone has a problem with that, they can talk to his fists. He’s secure in his manliness and rides whatever the heck he wants. 

Hawke has tattoos and often wears a black leather jacket. There aren’t any patches on his jacket. Patches are too personal. He works security and prefers to blend into the background. His tattoos are concealed by clothing when he’s on assignment. His customized bike (and his girl) doesn’t venture anywhere near possible hostiles. 

Hawke is his own man. He isn’t a type. Nicolas, my billionaire hero, is the same way. His kink of choice is exhibitionism and voyeurism. He has very different dark secrets than any billionaire I’ve met in Romanceland. Sometimes he’ll wear a gray tie (just to mess with heads - grins) but Nicolas is an individual, as different as you and I are.

What types of bikers and billionaires do you like reading about? Which heroes would you like to see more of?   

Belinda “Bee” Carter is a good girl; at least, that’s what she tells herself. And a good girl deserves a nice guy—just like the gorgeous and moody billionaire Nicolas Rainer. He is everything she wants in a man.

Or so she thinks, until she takes a look through her telescope and sees a naked, tattooed man on the balcony across the courtyard. Hawke is mysterious, the bad boy she knows will bring only heartbreak. He has been watching her, and that makes him all the more enticing.

But when a mysterious and anonymous text message dares her to do something bad, she must decide if she is really the good girl she has always claimed to be, or if she’s willing to risk everything for her secret fantasy of being watched.

Is her mystery man the reclusive billionaire with a wild side or the darkly dangerous bad boy?

Review ~*~ Desired by Stacey Kennedy

Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey are sure to love Desired, USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy’s latest seductive, electrifying novel of Club Sin, where fantasy becomes reality.

Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life. Beautiful, inhibited, and innocent in the ways of submission and domination, Ella is the new blood he’s been lusting after. Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control.

After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves?

Desired is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Review ~

I was so excited to get the latest installment in Stacey Kennedy's Club Sin series! And I wasn't disappointed - the most important thing right? LOL Stacey Kennedy once again creates real characters that worm their way into your heart.

Kyler and Ella are an interesting pair.  I adored Ella and her attitude to just try everything.  Some times I think she might go overboard and if she were my friend, I'd really worry about her. But once she meets Kyler, well that worry would dissipate.  He is determined to take good care of her and help her heal from her past issues.

Stacey Kennedy gives us a strong story with good plot and lots of heat!  It's a nice mix to create a story you won't want to put down! I do recommend reading the other Club Sin stories, but it is not necessary to enjoy Desired.
