#WOTR #Spotlight – H D’Agostino @hdagostino001


Heather D'Agostino

About the Author

I’m a stay-at-home mom turned author. I live in Central NY where it is currently snowing and winter lasts as long as summer. When I’m not writing, I’m usually at the dance studio with my daughter or the soccer fields with my son. I’m a coffee addict along with anything sweet. I have no problem striking up a conversation with a total stranger, and some of my best friends were met through the internet.

When and Why did you start to write?

One day I was reading a short story and decided, “Hey, I can do this.” I was very apprehensive when I first started out. It was very intimidating having a stranger read my work, but I put the story on a fanfiction site. I got great reviews, and so I did another one. I had written 4 full length novels when one reviewer messaged me and asked if I had ever published anything. They said they’d buy the story I’d been working on if I ever decided to make it a book. I’d never considered writing for a profit. It was just a fun hobby. After thinking on it for a few days, I decided to take the plunge. I searched for a beta, and then reworked the story so it would no longer be fanfiction. I tweaked the characters, changed a few names, and Unbreak Me was born. This was published in April 2013, and I’ve been going strong ever since.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I don’t read as much as I used to, but there are a few that I one click. Lately though I’ve found a lot of new to me authors. To name a few of the always read authors… Kristen Proby, Abbi Glines, J. Sterling, M. Leighton, Shey Stahl, Skye Turner, Jillian Dodd, Heidi McLaughlin,   Michelle Lynn, Vi Keeland, K. Bromberg, and I’m sure there are others.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

When I first started writing I was so scared of running out of ideas. I was right in the middle of my second book and was thinking “what happens when I finish? Will the next story just come to me? Am I going to be a one hit wonder?” It really did worry me back then. Once I took the pressure off, the stories started coming like wildfire. Now I have more voices in my head then I do time to write them. I can’t turn it off, and while it’s nice to have that problem, it’s also a burden. Sometimes I get headaches from trying to do other things. I’ve missed family time because I’m too busy listening to my characters. It’s taken me a little over a year to find balance, and I think my kids and husband are better off now that I’ve have.

The writing part is easy. It’s the rest that’s hard. AKA the publishing and marketing part.

What are you working on now?

I just finished the first draft of the next Cook Brothers book, Trevor’s book. I’m starting edits on the next Witness book, and I’m getting ready to plan out the next Sutter family book.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I think I’m a little of both. I usually know ahead of time how I want a story to end, what the main issue between the characters will be, and how they’ll resolve it. As far as the meat that surrounds that? Well that’s the pantser part. I just let it come to me, and sometimes a character will completely throw me for a loop. Sometimes the best books come from those moments though.

#ReleaseDay #Review – Her Russian Knight by Red Phoenix

Her Russian Knight

RELEASE DATE : MARCH 27th

Rytsar Durov is a sadist—and he’s upset. He just sent Tono Nosaka packing
and is about to confront Master Brad Anderson. Bones may be broken.

The Russian Dom is a force unto himself, and he intends to take care of the threat once and for all.

No one touches radost moya. NO ONE!

Nothing fazes this sexy Russian Dom, but how will he cope when he finds out the tragedy that’s befallen his comrade—the only man he calls Brother?

Goodreads

Amazon

 

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

How long we have waited for our favorite Russia to get his book.  I think he is a Sadist that any reader will fall in love with.  To see him love Brie just as much a Thane.  To watch him protect her just as fierce as Sir, it is just so swoon worthy.

Rytsar is the character who has commanded the series from the start.  I mean I remember my thoughts about him in the first scenes with him and LOVED him….I feared him for sure and was scared outta my mind because he is a very aggressive sadist but I loved him completely.   I have been wanting him to find love and love that he has found someone to open his heart but he needs a love all for himself.

Brie is a mess and still trying to navigate life with Thane in the hospital.  She is still dealing with the Beast and her attacks on her family but mainly she is lost without her condor love.  Rytsar is the perfect person to help her with her life and living during Thanes hospitalization.  Each of Sir’s friends have been around at the right time and Rytsar’s time is now.  He made sure that no one hurts his radost moya or his moye solntse!!

I loved the story but my heart is aching because of the final scenes..I need more and I need to know what happens soon.  My Russian Knight needs me!!!

#Review #MC – Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde

Shade's Lady (Reapers MC, #6.5)

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Goodreads

Amazon

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh boy…I loves my MC books and this series has never let me down. I was super excited to read about Shade, The National President, because if the regular presidents are alpha and brooding what the heck is the National President going to be like. He totally did not let me down!
Mandy is a down on her luck waitress at the local small town dive bar. She is currently not dating but dating a member of the Reapers MC Support club. Rebel is a total worthless POS but she is all about a good time plus not falling in love. Love is bad. Love is very bad!
Shade has watched Mandy forever and it is making him mental to see her with the dip Rebel. When he and Mandy are thrown together we find out exactly how bad of a guy Rebel is…..smh…..
The chemistry is great between Shade and Mandy. I loved watching her give him grief and not “fall in line” like all the other club girls do. She will not be just another girl. Shade is going nuts. What about her is so special? He has no idea but he can’t get her out of his head. He hates and loves this woman because she actually tells him what to do annnnnnd no one tells him what to do but the fact that he does what she says = hilarious!!!
I love the man that Shade is. He is who he is. He is outlaw but he lives and dies by his code. I love the support he gives Mandy and how he realizes early on he should tread lightly with her. I love love love the banter but man the final scene……yeah ugh……the breakfast line…….yeah it was a good one!!!

button-synopsis

Crenshaw Jacobson met the woman of his dreams…and he was determined to spend every night possible with her. But Waverlee Armstrong was leery of commitment, having been abandoned by her family at an early age. She knew that she loved Shaw…but can she learn to trust him and spend just one more night?

One More Night by Sarah O’Rourke

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

Oh ladies! I love the perfect cavemen alpha males you write!!  I swoon at each book and Shaw is no different than the others!!  He was a giant swoon worthy male.  I total imagined him as a silver fox FYI !

Shaw is a man who knows what he wants and gets it.  He has confidence and enough arrogance to get any woman but he wants Waverlee.  He wants the unconfident but sassy waitress at the bar he hangs out at.

Shaw, with the help of his best friend and wife, convince Waverlee to hang out with them for the night and see that Shaw is a good guy.  So after a long night of hanging and drinking she gives in and gives him “one night” only.  As sweet as Waverlee’s declaration sounded, Shaw was not about to let her go.  He knew this woman was his and his alone.

When an accident happens, Shaw and Waverlee make some discovers and some declaration that definitely changes the “one night” only rule!!

 

One More Night Teaser Flag Now Live

button-excerpt

Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers.

Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip.

“Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.

#WOTR #Spotlight – KL Kreig @klkreig

K.L. Kreig

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

K.L. Kreig: As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

When and Why did you start to write?

I didn’t start writing until I was in my mid-40’s and I started writing because, truthfully, I was reading a lot of less than stellar books and wondered if I could do better. I wrote 2 1/2 books before publishing my first one, Surrendering, in Dec 2014.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Pepper Winters and CD Reiss are my two go-to’s. I’ll one-click anything they write whether I’ve read the blurb or not. Other favorites include, JA Huss, Skye Warren, Lisa Renee Jones, Julie Kenner, Meghan March, Trisha Wolfe, and Callie Hart. There are so many more. I could go on for hours.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

That it’s by far the easiest part of everything book related. I didn’t fully realize when I got into this business, not only would I have to not only put out an top notch product, but that I’d have to become a marketing expert, teaser and trailer designer, swag artist, PR guru, CEO/CFO/CMO/COO and any other “chiefs” you can think of. Luckily my husband has helped me with as many of these things as he possibly can, so I can focus as much time on writing as possible.

What are you working on now?

My new Finding Me duet. Book 1, Lost In Between, releases Feb 20 and I’m currently finishing up writing the conclusion to that, called Found Underneath, which is expected to release sometime in May 2017 (date TBD). Then after that I have a couple of spin-offs from other books I’ve written planned. After that…who knows.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Haha. Writing is probably the only part of my life where I DO fly by the seat of my pants. Do I plot? Sure, but only high level. Do I outline every chapter before I start? Hell no. A) that’s too much work, and B) for me, I find I need to let my characters lead me and not the other way around. Every single book I’ve written has turned out differently than what I originally planned. Sometimes even the twists I planned don’t pan out. I thought about getting a little more structured and maybe I’ll need at some point if I think of a complex series or whatnot but so far it’s worked for me and I’m not about to fix what isn’t broken.

Pam GodwinIncentive by Pam Godwin, NY Times bestselling author

Desperate men do desperate things.

When Decker Gabrielli hits rock bottom, he accepts a job as a hired companion at Infidelity.

Surrendering a year of his life to a woman he’s never met might be the worst idea ever. But money, prestige, and sex are powerful incentives. That is, until the job becomes more than a contractual agreement.

Hard limits are breached, panties are shredded, and rules are broken.

In the end, his secret to getting ahead is…her.

TC WintersInheritance by TC Winters

Renowned artist Dante Costello’s carefree lifestyle is shattered by his father’s brutal murder.

Although his mafia family is suspect, when he confronts the person he believes is responsible, the man is executed right before his eyes.

In a bizarre twist, his younger sister is arrested for their father’s murder, and Dante is ordered to locate a priceless stolen painting to exonerate her.

During his search, Dante investigates the family business and is devastated to discover his father’s legitimate lifestyle was only an illusion.

As the hunt turns deadly, Dante must race against time to protect everyone he loves.

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

What the holy Mafia did I read!!  Man talk about an episode of The Soprano’s or Good Fellas just hit my kindle. I haven’t read a TC Winters book before but heck will I make sure to check her stuff out in the future.

Dante is just living life and enjoying his paint and brushes when he is given the news of his father’s death. The way the news was delivered wasn’t even the most of gentle ways either but when you are in the mafia I guess soft and gentle isn’t exactly the way of the world.

This books throws A LOT of names at you and not just names like Sam and Julie.  Its full of Italian, Mafia style names so a time or three I was like Wait which guy is this again???  But I was so engrossed in the story I just kept on reading and figured it out as I went.  Dante is all about revenging his father death and protecting his family.  Good thing Lennox was there from Aleatha Romig’s series!!  Nice to have some good family members near ya.

Dante is really screwed because it seems every time he thinks he might find out about is father murder he is tossed into more trouble!!  The story was great and totally had me going “ I have no frigging clue” on how it would end.  TC developed an amazing story of deceit and family…ya know the mafia life!!

Received this book from the author for an honest review.

Yes! What a story! Mafia? Check! Hot guy? Check! Action packed? Check! Forbidden love? Check!
This is my first TC Winters book but definitely won’t be the last. Right from the start you are thrown into Dante’s life. He has a mafia family but his father tried to set them on the straight and narrow. His father is brutally murdered. As the story unfolds one twist turns into two twists and then it just goes on and on. This is one I read start to finish in one sitting. When I did put it down it was only for a moment and I couldn’t wait to get back to see what was going to happen next. The author had me guessing all the way until the end. The setting was great and the characters are even better. Can’t wait to see what else TC Winters has in store for us.

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

I was drawn in from jump with this book. The suspense and drama was heart stoping. I was forever trying to figure out who was responsible for what was going on and who was leaking information. The twists and turns were thrilling. I never did figure things out OH I thought I knew but in the end I never did.

This was a fast pace keep you on your toes kind of read. As soon as you think you were going to get a clue to what was going one BAM something happened and you were no closer to finding out…well ok you may have a little clue but not what you thought you were getting.  Then the ending OH WOW….All I can say is Amazing way to end this suspenseful thrilling book.  I don’t want to say too much and give it way but this was great read.  It was my first Mafia read and I have to say it makes me want to go out and read more of them.

 

A.D. EllisDEVOTED by A.D. Ellis

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult material.**

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

AWWW Adam and Kyle. We met these two guys in Brae’s book but you dont need to read that book to follow along with theirs.  Adam and Kyle were a fun set of guys who became part of the inner circle of the series “Something about Him” so I loved reading about the wedding and honeymoon.

When you plan your wedding, and honeymoon you hope and pray nothing goes wrong.  Poor Adam and Kyle have a lot of setbacks.  They roll with the punches as best as they can.  They get help from friends and a new stranger, Lennox from Aleatha Romig’s books.  The two must deal with misfortune all while cementing their love and bonds with each other.  When they are faced with homophobic hate, they do what any couple in love would do, embrace each other harder and appreciate the love from their family of friends!!

 

Donya LynnSuspicion by Donya Lynne

My name is Max.

I’m a con man. A good one, too. One of the best.

But I’m tired of looking over my shoulder, waiting for my luck to run out. So I’m making a career change into the world of professional poker. Which is why I’m in Vegas. There’s a huge Texas Hold’em tournament at the Rio, and I’m going to win it.

My best friend and business partner, Shaun, isn’t happy with my decision to go legit. He says he brought me into the con game and that I owe him. He’s even willing to blackmail me to keep me under his thumb.

I don’t respond well to blackmail, so this isn’t going to work out the way Shaun wants.

Then there’s the girl. Disarming eyes, innocent smile, long legs. Nash came out of nowhere and filled a void in my unworthy heart I only recently realized existed. She’s trying to make a fresh start, too. Maybe together, she and I can create a new beginning and leave our crap pasts behind.

I’ll admit I’d fallen hard for this girl.

Harder than I’ve ever fallen, and probably harder than I should have.

Because I, more than anyone, should know how easy it is to fall for a con.

 

Suspicion is an Infidelity World novella about how things are always what they seem.

 

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00006]Indiscretion by DD Lorenzo

Love is dispensable; companionship is critical.

Some words of wisdom that my father imparted to me. I never gave much thought to either. My only desire was to be my father’s well-bred heir. A true Southern gentleman who took what he wanted and paved the road to success with the spoils.

Hiding behind the curtain of gentility, I perfected my role.

Until desire tore it in two and I was left with the tattered remains.

 

 

Lulu AstorIllegitimate by Lulu Astors

Meet the new boss…

Luca Costello, heir apparent to the New York Costello organized-crime family, is a man committed to sin, both professionally and personally. He takes no prisoners and expects no quarter.

Gabriella Buchanan, a beautiful and determined Chicago attorney with family ties to Brooklyn is on her way up when her path accidentally crosses with this son of a major New York crime boss. One look at the sexy, sloe-eyed Luca and she is instantly conflicted. She’s never been so attracted to any man before but they’re on different sides of a dividing line: the law.

For Luca, it’s simple. He can take what he wants and what he wants is Gabriella. In a universe of what-ifs, one thing is certain: Gabriella will prove to be either his saving grace or his fall from grace. The only question is which one it will be.

 

 

Jillian JacobsINSIDER by Jillian Jacobs

Infidelity insider Imina Lesedi is forbidden to share her employer’s secrets—and her own. Only one man understands the delicate nature of working for a company that provides companionship for the elite, but his social and financial status make him unattainable, even though Imina craves a visit to his darkroom.

Award winning photographer Aiden Maxfield views life from behind the camera. A charmer by nature, he relishes the moments he makes the elusive Imina smile—but he would much rather picture the exotic beauty on his rumpled sheets.

When the two are trapped together, the enticement proves too strong to resist. Raw passions are exposed, and their years of denial culminate in an insatiable desire for more.

But not everyone celebrates their newfound bliss. A malicious foe is threatened by Imina’s knowledge of a dark secret from their shared past. When that truth is exposed, Imina and Aiden must fight for their love before it becomes shuttered by lies, deception—and Infidelity.

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

If you haven’t read Jillian before you gotta know, her bad guys are total sociopaths and you will love reading them.  You will totally hate their guts and Kellogg is no different but she writes a great bad guy.

Imani and Aiden have total chemistry but she keeps pushing him away.  Aiden is not about to give up on this sassy, smart, beauty and a chance elevator breakdown leads to a fun and flirt adventure.  Imani lets something slip in regards to Aiden’s friends which leaves him puzzled until he hangs out with Kellogg and pieces start to fall together.

Aiden and Imani must deal with her job and secrets plus her past and contracts before there could be anything between the two of them.  However, Kellogg is not about to let this happen because their happiness will end in his down fall.  I mean if his deep dark secrets get out nothing good can or will come of it!!

I loved Imani.  She is strong and closed off but for a very good reason.  The way Aiden treats her and makes her feel is scary as heck especially given his relationship with Kellogg but nothing can stop Aiden from getting his woman!!

Aiden I thought was a great guy because he wasn’t the typical rich guy like his friends.  He was charming and compassionate plus no dummy either.  The guy pulled some serious “invisible” punches!

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

Talk about a steamy sexy read. The Elevator scene alone was one to write home to your BFF. The passion and fire Aiden and Imina have is explosive but did need a little fan of the flame to get the fire going between these two. Imina held back hanging on to secrets of her past and wouldn’t let Aiden in.

Where Imina was determined to keep Aiden at arm’s length Aiden was determined to fight for Imina. But would Imina’s past catch up to her and threaten what they could have?

Jilllian has a way of making you love the good guys and hate the bad guys. She knows how to make the bad guys the epitome of evil and the good guys the ones you want as your own.

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

The anguish, the pain, the passion…..This story is full of pain and love. Another story from the Infidelity World and it is crazy! Imina is Karen’s assistant with Infidelity and holds more secrets than she knows what to do with. Aiden is brought in to this world to do photography work and the passion is just simmering under the surface. Finally walls are brought down but we are introduced to a crazy psychopathic bad guy. Jillian Jacobs writes an incredible bad guy but with the same token the main characters are amazing. The best way to sum this book up is HAWT and CRAZY! The chemistry between Imina and Aiden is so beautiful and these characters definitely bring out the best in each other. Both are badasses! Kellogg is our resident bad guy and is on a different level of crazy. Secrets are shared and then the sh*t hits the fan! Boom! The twists will keep you on your toes. A must read!

Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

#WOTR #Spotlights- Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Ava Cuvay here! I write out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. I was at a impressionable age when the first Star Wars movie came out (and by “first,” I mean “#4”), and have been a Sci-Fi lover ever since. So it only makes sense I would write about love in a Sci-Fi setting!

I live in central Indiana with a hubby who makes me laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. I have a passion for the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at my own foibles (which keep me pretty well-entertained!).

When and Why did you start to write?

I’ve always been writing… but it wasn’t until I turned *cough!*cough!*-something that I considered writing my own novel. With my previous writing experience, and the skill with which I can craft a truly gripping business email (e.g. “Your TPS reports are due.”), I thought being an author would be soooooooo easy! (refer to comment about laughing at my own foibles 😉

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I love supporting my friends, so I read the works of my fellow writer-peeps, many of whom are attending WOTR. To name a few: Jillian Jacobs, Anya Breton, TC Winters, Lisa Caviness, AD Ellis, Aly Grady, LaNora Mangano, Teresa Kieffer, Shyla Colt, Donya Lynne… Oh, crud, whose name did I forget and whose name did I misspell?!?

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

Writing a good book is way more than being able to put complete sentences together, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Being an Author means I need to be knowledgeable and active in ALL aspects of my writerly business, from the finances to the marketing. It’s a challenge like none I’ve ever undertaken before. Which means it’s also both the most heart-wrenching and soul-satisfying challenge I’ve ever undertaken.

What are you working on now?

Book three of The Heart Nebula Series, currently titled “Blood King.” Ask yourself: What if Count Dracula was really a low-level lord from an alien race of blood suckers? Would you want to meet the King?

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Panster. I love learning about my characters as I write them. Oooooh, she’s a snarky hair stylist… Who knew?

#WOTR #ReleaseDay #BDSM – Resisting My Submissionby Jenna Jacob

Synopsis

 

They say first impressions mean everything. Either Maximus “Max” Gunn didn’t get the memo or he didn’t care. The gorgeous, muscle-bound Dominant’s assumption that I, Mistress Sammie, was a submissive set my blood boiling. I wanted to drive the toe of my coveted Louis Vuitton stilettos between his legs—and bring him to his knees.

But anger wasn’t the only burning emotion Max ignited inside me. The potent sexual attraction we share threatened to burn me alive, too. Unwilling to cede our Dominance, the battle for control raged like a third world war, both in and out of the dungeon. It would take a coup d’état for love to conquer our drive to command.

But when Max learns the secrets of my past, and attempts to heal my scars, I don’t know if I’ll be able to still the battle…or fall willingly to my knees.
