#WOTR19 #Erotica #Novella – Wild (Quick & Dirty Series #3) by Kate Roth

43680362

She’s housesitting at her aunt and uncle’s mini mansion. He’s the rich, brooding silverfox next door. She tempts him, he intrigues her and they both desperately want something wild.

*Each book in the Quick & Dirty series is a novella. They are all stand-alone, insta-loving, panty-melting, swoon-worthy stories to satisfy your craving for something quick and dirty*

Goodreads

Amazon

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

I don’t know what it is about you and your love for Silver Foxes, but DAMN Gavin has been my favorite so far.  This book is a little bit different then the other books.  Maybe it’s because Gavin stole my heart? Maybe its because he is an older man rediscovering life?  Who the hell knows but still…guuurl you write some nasty stuff and this is why I love you!!

This book is a quick and dirty novella about those May-December romances that everyone thinks wont last and yet Gavin and Lydia have so much chemistry.  They both aren’t looking for love or commitment so to literally crash into each other at the time they did, proves love knows best.

Gavin is a man who is happy to drink a beer on the patio with his dog.  Lydia is a wild child who will be jet setting with her band when they meet.  The chemistry and changes the both undergo in the novella are delicious reads.

I loved this one and am so excited for the next installment of the dirty neighbor’s series.

Published since 2012, Kate Roth is addicted to all things romance. Her passion for love stories, both traditional and unconventional, has led her to write in various sub-genres of romance. She is inspired by everything from music to the real-life romance tales she’s heard through her years as a professional hair stylist.

Kate spends her time away from the keyboard with her insta-love husband, her sweet baby boy and faithful pound puppy.

#IAE19 #AuthorSpotlight #EventHost – Avelyn Paige

Avelyn Paige

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Avelyn Paige. I am a cancer research scientist by day, and an author by night.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

My favorite place to write is wherever I can find a few second. I have written on my phone during church when a thought hit so no place is safe from writing time. I’m not really a snacker when I write, but there’s always a can of coke nearby.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The people. I am a social butterfly naturally, but getting to be in a place with so many like-minded individuals is absolutely inspiring and so, so much fun. The event itself always goes by way too fast.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Oh lord have mercy. There’s way too many. Some that would even require a time machine because they aren’t with us anymore. If I had to pick a current favorite, I’d love to pick the brain of Darynda Jones.

What author would you love to write with?

I’d honestly love to write a PNR with Darynda or Chloe Neill.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Again… so many memories. I think my favorite would have to be the first time someone recognized outside of a signing. My husband and I were at our local casino for a night out, and a reader spotted me there. It was such a fun experience, and to meet a reader so close to home was amazing.

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hope Daniels, I’m half of the writing team to the Magical Forces Series books.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

My favorite place to write is actually outside. Unfortunately, the sun makes it difficult to stay out there long and write. So, my second favorite place to write is in my bedroom with my feet up and music playing.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting the readers and introducing them to my books. My characters take on a life of their own and I tend to get animated when I talk about them. 🙂
I love the interaction between authors and getting to meet the authors that I read and review. The energy is undeniable. If you weren’t pumped before you arrived, you will be before you leave.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Nora Roberts, Larissa Ione, Lorelei James (Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one)

What author would you love to write with?

Dianna Love, Larissa Ione

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Holding my first paperback in my hands is one. The one which made me tear up is when we were at an event and a fan came to our table and said they read our book and loved it. Now they needed it in paperback.

#NewRelease #Paranormal – Air Born (The Guardian #3) by Rayanne Haines

Air Born (The Guardians Series,  #3)

Quinn Taleisin hates secrets, and shadows, and subterfuge. Which is why she still can’t believe she agreed to become a member of the Guardians, an elite force of immortals tasked with keeping the balance between good and evil in the world.

Sounds great, except, to be a guardian you must agree to live in secrecy. Quinn is a wind elemental. Being caged in by secrecy is worse than death for someone like her. She can’t imagine a worse fate—until she’s asked to work with Lachon Findel, the man she holds responsible for her mother’s death and her father’s insanity.

Lachon is the oldest living elemental in the world. Known as Lachon the Law, he’s an earth element; a man who sees the world in black and white, right and wrong. So maybe once, briefly, a hundred years ago she thought he was a good guy. She knew better now. No way would she fall for his savior of the world shtick.

When the dangers of the past catch up with them, Quinn realizes the only way either of them will make it out alive is if she can put the ghosts of the past behind her and finally trust the flesh and blood man in front of her.

#NewRelease #Cowboys #FreeKU – The Irish Cowboy by Jessica Marin

Title: The Irish Cowboy (Bear Creek Rodeo)

Author: Jessica Marin

Genre: Contemporary Western Romance

Cover Designer – EDH Graphics

Release Date: May 21st, 2019

The Irish Cowboy, a sexy, short insta-love romance, is now LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

Amazon 

Goodreads

Tessa Mandel

The catcalls and whistles get old, but cowboys are a necessary evil when you work at the Bear Creek Rodeo. While rodeo life isn’t for me, it’s the only thing supporting my secret side career. I live a double life, but I know my dream of returning to the big city is close to becoming reality. If being an orphan has taught me anything, it’s that you can’t count on anyone but yourself. Working for the rodeo brings many distractions and I can’t afford the complications that come with sliding between the sheets with a smooth talker in tight jeans and a cowboy hat. I have big plans for myself and none of them include being charmed by any of these cowboy Casanovas.

But then I meet the infamous Rhett Kearney, who makes my stomach flutter by just saying my name. One kiss from his gorgeous Irish lips turn my world upside down and my panties inside out.

My timeline doesn’t include falling for a handsome cowboy… but it might be too late for that.

Rhett Kearney

As one of the top saddle bronc riders in the world, I’m no stranger to hard work that draws out blood, sweat and tears. Every time I leave Ireland to compete, I feel the weight of my birthright square on my shoulders, but nothing compares to the roar of a crowd when I climb onto that bucking horse, riding it as hard as I can for those eight seconds. The goal has always been the same — compete in US National Rodeo Finals and make as much money as I can. It’s a race against time, as age is not your friend when you are a professional cowboy. So I don’t waste my time chasing skirts and getting tangled up with a pretty face who’s looking for her next meal ticket out of town.

But I couldn’t prepare myself for the sassy Tessa Mandel or the punch to the gut when I see her beautiful baby blue eyes flare with desire, making me want to risk it all for one more taste of her honeysuckle kisses.

I didn’t travel halfway around the world to lose. I’m taking home my grand prize… she just doesn’t know it’s her yet.  

Bear Creek Rodeo is a series of contemporary western love stories written by bestselling authors Jennifer D. Bokal, Amy L. Gale, Sara Jolene, Jessica Marin and Kirsten Osbourne.

Jessica Marin began her love affair with books at a young age from the encouragement of her

Grandma Shirley. She has always dreamed of being an author and finally made her dreams of

writing happily ever after stories a reality. She currently resides in Tennessee with her husband,

children and fur babies. When she’s not hanging out with her family, she loves watching a good

movie, going dancing with the ladies, sniffing essential oils and daydreaming of warm beaches,

winning the lotto and world peace.

#NewRelease #Fairytales – For the Guild: A Fairytale Adventure by J.E. Mueller

For the Guild: A Fairytale Adventure

A modern-day fairytale.

Being a prince is great and all, except royal expectations. Rey would much rather be online with his guild enjoying life his own way, but his parents have other plans for him: a royal ball. This attempt to help him find someone sounds like a royal pain. Too bad the invitations are out and can’t be taken back, even with magic. Things could be more fun with a little guildmate shenanigans and a cosplay theme. Can Rey make the best out of this mess with the help of his guild or will the ball be a royal flop?


Goodreads

Skyrim, Alice: Madness Returns, Splatoon, Fat Princess, Stardew Valley, and the Legend of Zelda series.

#WOTR19 #Review – Minx by Maggie Adams

MINX

A romantic comedy about friendships, flirtations, and the elusive “Fantasm!”

Hi! I’m Miranda Blake and this is my story. Well, sort of. It’s more like a twisted fairytale, if you believe in them. Except there’s no beautiful, young princess with perky breasts, perfectly coiffed hair and a sassy attitude. I’m closing in on fifty, thirty pounds overweight according to Weight Watchers, and, after nursing two kids and that bitch, gravity, doing her job, I’m lucky the ladies don’t hit my knees. The gorgeous brown mane of hair is slightly frizzy from my ridiculous attempts to recapture my youth by dyeing the hell out of it. As for sassy attitude, well, it wasn’t so long ago that I was a doormat. And the charming prince who sweeps me off my feet into the life of my dreams? I have a dog called Prince, German Shepherd, who knocks me on my ass if I’m in the way when the doorbell rings. Does that count?


Goodreads


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

OMG this book was hilarious!!!  I seriously LOVE the characters of the story.  Miranda and her crew of best friends were so awesome to read.  But the temptation tug of which brother, Reed or Ritter, was great too!  Miranda’s friends are seriously the best people around.  They lover her 110% and are going to do anything and everything to make sure she gets the HEA with a good guy this time around.

Miranda legit is told by her DB future ex its over.  They are getting ready to leave for a cruise when he drops the bomb, she is being replaced by a younger woman and she is to get outta their family home ASAP.  Miranda rallies her troops and they set to help her find herself and pick herself back up after 20 years of marriage.

What skills does an outta work housewife, stay at home mom have?  Well she has enough to charm a playboy named Ritter into hooking her up with a job at his company.  When she meets his very stuck up brother, Reed, she is confused as to how they can be so different.

As the story unfolds, we begin to see different sides to both men.  Neither is who we thought they were.  Is Ritter the good guy or a DB?  Is Reed really an uptight jackass or just a guy protecting his heart????

I seriously snickered so many times reading this book and loved, loved, loved how it all played out.

#NewRelease #MM #TriggerWarnings – It’s in My Blood: Criminal Delights- Obsession by Sean Azinsalt

It's in My Blood: Criminal Delights- Obsession

Death eventually comes for us all. But what if there’s a way for older people to regain their youth? To stay a step ahead of the grim reaper?

Turning 40 was the last straw for me. It’s practically 60 in gay years and I wasn’t ready for dentures yet, so I came to Youthology — a program that injects clients with blood transfusions from young, fit and healthy donors.

I chose Nick.

Handsome. Masculine. And more importantly, young.

I thought I hit the lottery, until my life started to change for the worst. Not even the top medical experts can explain what happened to me. From the moment Nick’s blood flooded into my veins, I stopped being me, and I became something new; something dangerous and deadly.

I became my donor.

His obsessions are mine now. His darkest desires, his dreams, his needs, and nightmares are all a part of me, and I don’t want to let them go.

I embrace them and the beautiful boy who haunts both of our dreams.

My blood pact was sealed the moment I entered Youthology.

I never thought I’d become a killer.

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.
