#ReleaseBlitz – Glorious Sinner, A Lawless King Novellla by Sherilee Gray

Title: Glorious Sinner: A Lawless Kings Novella
Series: Lawless Kings
Author: Sherilee Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 17, 2018

 

People say Tomas Mendoza is dangerous. 
 
They’re right.
 
But he saved my life. 
 
I owe him, and all I have to repay the ruthless crime boss…is me. I tell myself it’s not pity that burns in his eyes when I dance for him, that my walls are so high he can’t see how broken I am inside. 
 
Now danger stalks me again, and Tomas swoops in, only this time he shows me a different side of himself. Fierce protectiveness. Raw hunger. A tenderness that could sear through the barriers I raised to safeguard my heart and soul.
 
My past taught me not to trust. But this glorious sinner might be the one man I need to learn to love again.
 
Glorious Sinner is a 44,000 word novella and the fifth book in the Lawless Kings series. Each of these sexy, gritty contemporary romances can be enjoyed as a standalone.

I was staring at my laptop, trying and failing to work, when a light knock hit my office door. I knew who it was, and when she pushed open the door and walked in, I knew why she was seeking me out, what she wanted.
What she needed.
Even if she didn’t.
She was wearing that same robe I’d seen her in earlier. It was hanging open, shorts and what looked like a tank on underneath.
“You’re still up,” she said, walking in.
I sat back in my chair, not even trying to hide how hard I was, fucking hoping she’d see it, realize how on edge I was, and run the other way. “What’s going on, Steph?”
She shrugged. “I couldn’t sleep.” She looked around the office as she moved to the other side of the desk. “I thought I’d see if you were still awake. If you wanted to maybe watch a movie?”
I should humor her, pretend just like she was, but that was impossible, especially tonight. I’d been gentle with her for twelve months, given her space. Maybe that was the problem. Maybe I’d given her too much space. So I shook my head. “That’s not why you’re here.”
She stilled, biting down on her lip, eyes getting wider. “What?”
“Watching a movie isn’t what you want, Angel. That’s not why you’re in my office.”
“No…I…” She trailed off because she knew I was right and she couldn’t lie to herself or me about that fact now that I’d called her out.
She was hot and needy, she wanted what she knew I could give her, and she was scared of it at the same time. Ryan had fucked her up in ways I could never understand, but I wasn’t going to let him take this from her, from us.
“Come here, Stephanie.”
She blinked, frozen like a deer in headlights.
I held her gaze. “You trust me?”
She nodded.

 

I sat there waiting for her to make her decision. She stared back at me for the longest time, then finally, fucking finally, she started toward me. When she reached my side, I took her hand, bringing it to my lips, pressing a kiss to her trembling fingers then the inside of her wrist. “When was the last time you had an orgasm, Angel?”

#NewRelease – Reckless Youth By Sierra Hill

 

Title: Reckless Youth (Part 1)
Series: Reckless – The Smoky Mountain Trio (a 3-book MFM/MMF serial)
Author: Sierra Hill
Genre: Contemporary Erotic MFM Romance
Release Date: Tuesday September 18, 2018

Reckless Youth by Sierra Hill

Conventional wisdom says you can’t love two people, but I’ve proved that wrong. Because I did.

I’ve loved two boys in my lifetime. Two boys I grew up with; boys I laughed with and cried with and eventually fell in love with.

Our love morphed into an overwhelming devotion eventually opening our eyes, bodies and hearts to a very different type of love.

A Forbidden Love.

A Lustful Love.

A Doomed Love.

They say that the heart isn’t meant for that kind of duplicity, but my stupid stubborn heart never listened.

Loving them was a necessity, something akin to breathing.

Nothing could keep us apart.

Until that fateful night – the night that tore my heart into two equal, broken parts.

Reckless Youth is Part One of a three-part, epic, MFM love story that spans the course of 25 years. It has drama, love, betrayal, sacrifice and of course, lots of steamy MFM action.

PRAISE FOR Reckless Youth:

“I started this book and next thing I knew it was 11pm and I was 90% through it! Now I find myself shaking and counting down the days until I can get my hands on Reckless Abandon! 💜” – Kelly, Goodreads reviewer

“Be ready to question your own beliefs on relationships and to fall in love with this trio (MFM) as they fall in love with each other.” – Jennifer, Goodreads reviewer

“Being a serial, you can expect a cliffhanger of course, but let me tell you, I absolutely, truly wasn’t expecting anything like *that*!” – Nina, blogger

The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.

We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.

Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.

Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.

Review by Becky

I received a copy of the book for my honest review.

Holy hay bales!!!!  You rocked again Pam.  Lorne and Raina’s story is beautifully told.  The heartaches both suffered at the hands of others and their shear personal strengths to survive is told so well that you can feel the heartache they each felt.  They are so much alike yet different.  Raina’s Native American heritage gives her the insight to see and hear Lorne and his pain.  She knows he is a good man and loved hard by Jake, Conor, and Jarret. She uses her knowledge to slowly bring Lorne to life and back to living the life he deserves. Lorne has shut himself off and down.  That’s the only way he could survive in prison.  He is finally released from prison his sentence to find Raina in his bed.  Lorne is torn by the sight of abused Raina in his bed.  He feels the draw to her.  He sees and hears Raina and her pain.  The desire Lorne and Raina have to help each other overcome their painful past draws them closer together.  Raina tells Lorne her story.  He is fit to be tied.  Lorne and Raina get their resolution and are able to put their demons to rest.  Their love grows.  Raina gets the family she has been missing.  Lorne regains his as well – opening his heart back to them and all that was missed while imprisoned.

Lorne and Raina’s relationship is beautiful.  Their connection allowed them to truly see and hear each other – without words or touch.  I can’t say it enough.  I absolutely LOVE your writing.  Who wouldn’t love a hot, rockin’ cowboy?!!

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview #PNR #Review – Bearly Safe by Anya Breton

Bearly Safe (Texan Bears Book 1)

Attending a co-worker’s Halloween party dressed as a sexy fairy was the worst decision Shelby Maxwell made all week. That is until she lets her temper get the best of her in front of Dallas’s finest and ends up in the back of a police cruiser. Too bad the gorgeous jerk responsible for her bad behavior didn’t have the sense to avoid the police, himself.

When someone shoots up the party, the gorgeous jerk, Nick Kang, sprouts fur, explodes out of the police cruiser, and saves the day. Nick’s jerk streak continues as he leaves Shelby to explain what happened.

After her name is released to the press, a penitent Nick arrives to protect Shelby from the killer’s mafia associates. Close quarter guarding leads to close quarter groping and a little more intimacy than Shelby is prepared for. But it may be time to put her past behind her and accept far more than the safety Nick offers.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

So I have to admit the blurb made me giggle and that it why I asked Anya for the book.  Because I figure if I giggled reading it, I would be giggling through the whole book annnnnd  I was right.  Also side note, If you have talked with Anya or know Anya then you might think like me…she is Shelby.  Every time she said something sarcastic or let her loudmouth face talk, I heard Anya’s voice!!  LOL

Shelby is so over DB’s but that seems to be her lot in life.  While at a party another DB strolls up to her annnnd gets her arrested!  LOL  Sucks right!!  Well the DB actually did her a solid by ya know, saving her life when the bad guys start shooting up the squad car she and he are in.

SO now Shelby has to deal with what happened in the car annnnd lemme tell ya A LOT more happened in the car plus she is a suspect in several police officer’s murders.  Bad day gone worse right???  When she has a double date and the DB guy…ok his name is Nick, is her date…..stunned doesn’t even begin to cut it.

The banter is hilarious between these two.  Nick is really draw to Shelby.  She hates to admit it but she too is drawn to him.  When things begin to happen all around them, Nick had to involve his Alpha and other pack members to help his woman……..but will she be his woman????  Is she his woman?  Can he get her to allow him to claim her with a bite and all????

The couple both need to stop and talk about what is happened because a miscommunication between them causes some difficulties in a possible future together.

I really am not sure whose book I want next more…do I want fun loving Matty or extra broody Kreigh??  Me thinks Kreigh!!!

 

Anya writes stories with romantic slants. Sometimes they’re extra naughty and sometimes they’re sickeningly sweet.

She reviews books on a different, secret profile.

 

#Review #Paranormal #Wolves – See Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 1) by M. Jayne / Melanie Jayne

See Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 1) by [Jayne, M.]

Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret.  I am a paranormal whore.  I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me.  So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly.  Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read.  With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!!  Like WTF!!  It blew me outta the damn water.  I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning.  I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read.  FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!!  Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!

I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created.  I loved her mythology.  I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him.  Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!!  Theo is thrust into this NEW world.  She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open.  When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be.   Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her.  They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.

The story was so wonderfully written.  I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!!  Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling.  I thought the flow of the story was amazing.  You were always wondering what would happen next.  I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing.  When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger.  The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!

I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!!  #TeamNovus  #TeamLore  #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review – BUT FIRST COFFEE by Sarah Darlington

 

Title: But First, Coffee

Author: Sarah Darlington
Release Date: September 10th
Series: Love & Coffee, Book 1
BLURB:
She’s the boss.
I’m only a barista in her company.I really don’t give a f**k about her one way or the other.

And then there’s Doug Maddox, a man with a lot of power over me. He’s blackmailing me. Making me spy on her. I’m supposed to find her weaknesses and destroy her. But the closer I get, the more the lines between us start to blur.

She’s sweet. She’s kind. She’s sexy as hell.
Why am I the only man who see’s this?

So now I’m stuck—between keeping my sister safe against Doug, because that’s what’s really at stake here, and these feelings I can’t deny for a woman who shouldn’t mean anything to me.

I know what I have to do. I’ll destroy her.
It doesn’t matter if I have to destroy my own heart in the process.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I love Sarah’s books and sign up to review them when I get the forms.  Something about the way she writes and her kinda but not really insta-love….dude its romance and I like it.

So Joe and Lana……ok when I read the blurb of the book I thought it was gonna be like the movie You got mail.  Remember that movie in the 90’s with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks…I mean Joe is watching Lana to undermine her and all that jazz…..so I was all in with the book.

But I think I got so much more in the book.  There is a lot of chemistry, lust and ANGST people.  Sarah is the queen of angst.  Have you read her other series??? OMG so good!!  The story was a great book with blackmail to save our sister but falling for your target.  We soon discover many layers of Joe and Lana plus the other characters, Kitty and Doug.  We see the main couple falling in love while trying to figure out what to do and also looking ahead to Kitty’s book.  Maybe the spoiled brat will soon learn a thing or two about love.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

Q & A with M. Jayne

Hello to My Friends at Twinsie Talk,

Thank you for inviting me to share…and chat…and ramble.

I’m M. Jayne/Melanie Jayne. As M. Jayne I am releasing my first paranormal romance and as Melanie Jayne I have three contemporary romance series featuring characters over the age of thirty-five.

See Me is the first book in the Novus Pack Series and it took over five years to write. The first two attempts were terrible, but on my third try I found my rhythm. In my Lycan world, a human woman is dumped on the Novus Pack’s land. She is saved when they discover she carries the mark of their goddess. See Me tells how Theodora acclimates to this new world and her feelings for the enigmatic leader, Raider Black.

Are you a pantser or a plotter?

Plotter. The first outline for this book was over sixty pages with character descriptions, snippets of dialogue, songs, and fashion ideas. Over time things were added and deleted (so much deleting), but the basic story stayed the same. I knew this world and the main storyline from the start.

Who is another author you always recommend to readers?

I can’t name just one! That is impossible. I cut it down to SIX.  I can do Six.  **These are my picks for today and in no particular order

  • Skye Warren for those with a taste for Dark. Prisoner written with Annika Martin is haunting.
  • Damon Suede’s Hothead is a fantastic, hot, sexy romance. Whether you read m/m or not, read this book for the story!
  • Penny Reid. I love, love, love the Winston Brothers Series. Funny, sweet, and at times I did ugly cry.
  • Kristen Ashley. The Rock Chick Series. I am a Rock Chick, like the author I was raised in central Indiana. I re-read this series every year and I still play my music loud.
  • H. Cosway. I never know what to expect from this author. Each book is original and very interesting. Different characters and outcomes…she makes me think.
  • Patricia Briggs. The Alpha and Omega Series. Huge impact on my writing. I think that Charles is one of the sexiest men in fiction. Anna is growing and changing which I applaud because I know how difficult it is to allow a character to grow over the course of a series.

What is your favorite part of creating a new book/series?

My stories come to me complete, either in a dream, while I’m mowing, or driving. So once I have the idea, I think about the visuals:  The clothes, the office or homes, the colors. In High School I was told that I was a “visual thinker” and that has proved to be true. I “see” the scenes.

The most fulfilling part of creating for me is when I’m writing and the pieces fall together. When the motivations or psychology of my character makes sense without a long explanation or I have to create a scene where it is explained. The backstory usually grows as the story comes to life on the page so I start with a feeling and the rest fills itself in as I type.

WHEN OLD DECEPTIONS LEAD TO NEW DESIRES
Ross Carlisle, Earl of Spalding, has dedicated his life to serving his country. When he discovers secrets that could endanger England, he’s forced into an impossible situation—commit treason and race to London to clear his name before the crown turns against him. He’s prepared to abandon everything he possesses in order to protect England, including his life…until he crosses paths with a woman who’s keeping her own secrets.

Ten years ago, Grace Alden fled the only life she’d ever known in order to protect her son, only to come face-to-face with that past when Ross collapses on her doorstep. They strike a deal—she’ll help him travel to London if he helps her reclaim her son’s inheritance. But as old deceptions turn into new desires, will they be willing to sacrifice everything they hold dear in order to protect the people they love?

Q&A with Anna Harrington

(HOW THE EARL ENTICES)

 ◦How would you describe your books to new readers?

I write Regency era romances with a progressive and modern feel to them. My characters talk in rhythms of modern American English, which I think makes the books more enjoyable for readers who are used to that same internal voice in their heads when they read, and the conflicts they face are those which people might encounter during any time period—guilt over a parent’s death, fear of falling in love, a willingness to do anything to protect a child. My heroes are alpha but wounded, and my heroines are strong, independent, and outgoing women who all have the Regency era equivalent to careers and interests outside of society events and capturing a husband. But while my books are progressive, they are still firmly grounded in history, with all the wonderful facets of the era that make historicals so much fun to write and read.

◦Who are some of your favorite Go-To authors?

Anna Bradley, Kelly Bowen, Lisa Kleypas, Suzanne Enoch…too many to list! But I also love discovering new authors.

◦Pantser or Plotter?

Definitely more plotter than pantser! I always start with a 20 page outline of the plot so that I don’t write myself into a corner with the conflict, run out of conflict after 50 pages, or write 95K words, only to be nowhere near the resolution. But each scene is pantsed, which keeps that feeling of spontaneity. Sometimes the characters will decide to take the plot into a completely new direction. When that happens, I let them, but then I also go back and update my long outline so that at least one of us knows where the story is headed! LOL!

◦What are some must-have foods or drinks you need on hand when you are finishing up your books?

Coffee!! My books are written by Starbucks and Folgers. ☺ But once I get near the end, I often switch to a glass of wine. Sipping wine from a glass forces me to slow down and not rush the last scene. It also makes for a pleasant way to celebrate when the first draft is finally done.

◦What are you working on next?

I’m currently finishing edits for book 5 in the Capturing the Carlisles series, WHAT A LORD WANTS. Evelyn Winslow finally gets her own romance—and her marquess. The book is about the double life being led by Dominick Mercer, Marquess of Ellsworth, who is England’s most respected peer by day and notorious Italian painter Domenico Vincenzo by night. When Evelyn accidentally stumbles into his studio and is mistaken for his new model, the adventure is simply too great for her to deny herself. But soon she’s discovered, and the only man who can save her reputation is the same one who ruined it. Its release is scheduled for March.

I fell in love with historical romances—and all those dashing Regency heroes!—while living in London, where I studied literature and theatre. I love to travel, fly airplanes, and hike, and when I’m not busy writing, I can usually be found in my garden, tending to my roses.
