Stephanie Salvatore

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Stephanie, I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and I am passionate about creating! If I’m not working my butt off at my full time job and writing all the words, you can find traveling, diamond painting, spending time with my bratty furr babe, Brody. We like to take car rides and sass off to the coffee baristas at Starbucks. You can also find me taking over Social Media with all things Montgomery Beauty!
Coffee and pepsi keep me going at lightening speeds, while I create the next best novel!

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

My favorite place to write is while I’m working. I plug my headphones in, get lost in the music and type away. No specific food has to present unless we’re counting a gallon of coffee.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

This will be my very first signing! Yay!

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

JM Walker

What author would you love to write with?

Chad Michael Murray

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

My favorite memory as an author thus far is completing two huge bucket list items which consisted of going to fan conventions and sharing Sausalito Nights with Chad Michael Murray [He is a huge inspiration and also a published author.] The second bucket list item was taking Sausalito Nights to Las Vegas and showing Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki that I did it! I finally published my first novel, and the pride-filled look on Jared’s face – because it was priceless!

#review – Dungari Rise (Alien Alphas of Pilathna #1) by Nikki Landis

Dungari Rise (Alien Alphas of Pilathna, #1)

Synika was his mate and he didn’t give a damn if she refused.

“You’re going to be my bride. I’ll make certain of it.” 

Synika has hidden from the dominant alien race that conquered Earth 100 years ago in search of fertile females. She’s a strong-willed and headstrong woman who knows what she wants and it isn’t belonging to some Dungari male and auctioned off at the annual Choosing. When she meets Tuvari and their worlds collide, Synika is forced to confront her prejudices and decide if the Dungari male is her friend, foe . . . or maybe more.

Tuvari helped establish the first colony on Earth and works with the Dungari Bureau of Human Affairs. He’s a soldier and a warrior with a reputation, determined to keep his race from extinction. Strong, charismatic, confident, and sexy as sin he’s used to getting his way and exactly what he wants. Until he meets Synika. Tuvari has always believed his one true mate existed but could he dare to fall for a human?

Is it love, lust, or something more that draws the two together? In a world torn apart and ravaged by lies, can Tuvari and Synika move past the betrayal of a nation and find common ground?

Dungari Rise is first in a new exciting series of alien romances with heat, Alien Alphas of Pilathna.


Goodreads


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

YIKES!!  And WOWZER!!!

Tuvari and his people came to Earth looking for females.  They weren’t the nicest or sweetest of dudes that is for dang sure.  They were a bit arrogant since they are the top of the apex now.

Synika has been hiding from this culling or Choosing Ceremony.  Her brother has done a lot to shelter her from the world that they live.  However, she is taken to be part of a harem for a prince who is not the kindest of people.  But Tuvari sees Synika and he knows he needs to tread lightly. Her sass and fiery nature put his heart all kinds of wild.    He is a brother to the Prince and starts to do everything he can to protect an save her.

The book is very open to the brutality that Synika sees and it can be a bit difficult to read but the main character is strong.  She is able to over come and forge a strong relationship with Tuvari.

This book was hard to read at times but I really enjoyed the sci-fi nature of the book along with the dystopia feel.

I have been waiting for this book. Rytsar is my favorite of all the Doms and we finally get his story. We are able to see what all has happened in Rytsar’s life that makes him the man he is today.

Rytsar had a hard life growing up that he had to overcome. As a collage student in the US he finds 2 friends who become a life line for him. They are always there for each other to help them through what ever is going on in their life. We are finally told the entire story of what happened between him and Samantha that life changing event day. All I can say is this absolutely broke me to see how She destroyed him. I loved seeing Rytsars mom she has a heart of gold here again seeing what happens to her sends Rytsar over the edge. The only one that could possibly help him is his blood brother, Thane.

I like seeing Thane, Brad and Rytsar together the bond they share is amazing. They are all alpha but have totally different ways of projecting this. Rytsar’s story made my heart blead everything that he had to endure. I enjoyed seeing him wield his cat o’ nines. I enjoyed getting glimpses into the younger years of the Dom’s but most of all it was a way to see how they came into the BDSM lifestyle and how they became the men they are today. Thank you Red Phoenix for sharing their story with us.

#NewRelease #Review #BDSM – I Will Not Beg (Mountain Masters & Dark Haven #9) by Cherise Sinclair

I Will Not Beg (Mountain Masters & Dark Haven, #9)

She signed away her freedom…

Starved for affection, young Piper Delaney surrenders her life to a Master. But there is no love—only abuse. She’s told she can’t leave; she signed the slave contract. Years later, beaten and starving, she hears an English Dom say the contract’s illegal. Unenforceable. And she runs.

She reclaims her life and rises above the nightmare that was her past.

But her enslavement left scars. She longs for love, but the only men who truly attract her also terrify her–Dominants. Hoping to conquer her fears, she visits Dark Haven, but the sounds of the club are too much.

When a submissive panics, Sir Ethan steps in.

The powerful English Dom recognizes the shivering submissive in his lap. Years before, he’d corrected her Master’s deceit about a contract. She’s come a long way since then. Cynical at being pursued for his wealth, he finds Piper’s honesty compelling. She’s intelligent, brave…and she needs him. What Dom could resist?

He’s the Dom she’d dreamed about—perceptive, firm, and utterly self-confident.

His voice pulls her from panic attacks. His arms enclose her in safety. He treats her like a person, not something to mistreat. As he helps Piper overcome her fears, she starts to fall in love.

Then her past finds her and destroys…everything.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author.

I fell like its been FOREVER since I have gotten to visit the Dark Haven.  Seeing all these names like Xavier, Stan and even *shivers* DeVeries (Lindsey girl….you are brave to take that one on!!) made my heart so happy.  But meeting and falling for Sir Ethan was such a great ride.

There is so much emotion in this story.  We are dealing with Piper and all the abuse she endures at “He We Shall NOT Title a Master”.  We see the damage she has endured but when she finally breaks her silence and we find out ALL she endured…..sigh…what a spirit to not be broken.  What amazing courage to break free and then face her trauma!!!

Ethan has little knowledge that he helped Piper escape her prison and daily abuse when he meets her years later. He just knows she is a skittish yet tempting women he would like to get to know better.

As the couple work on helping her overcome her fear of the D/s world, we see more feeling develop between the two.  I was so excited when things went “further” because the faith she has in him but the faith he shows I her after all he has lived through in the past with loving a woman.

These two are such complex characters and I loved each of their flaws.  I loved how they both were so reactive and yet reflective later.  They both need the other to complete them and are so scared to admit it.  When they finally realize their love and devotion to the other is when everything comes crashing down.

I absolutely loved the story but kinda wish we got to see Jerry get his ass handed to him just one more time!!  LOL

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, she’s renowned for writing heart-wrenching romances with laugh-out-loud dialogue, alpha males, and absolutely sizzling sex.

I met my dearheart when vacationing in the Caribbean. Now I won’t say it was love at first sight. Actually since he stood over me, enjoying the view down my swimsuit top, I might have been a tad peeved—as well as attracted. But although we were together less than two days and lived on opposite sides of the country, love can’t be corralled by time or space.

We’ve now been married for many, many years. (And he still looks down my swimsuit tops.)

Nowadays, I live in the west with this obnoxious, beloved husband and a seventy-pound lap-puppy. I’m a gardener, and I love nurturing small plants until they’re big and healthy and productive…and ripping defenseless weeds out by the roots when I’m angry. I enjoy thunderstorms, collecting eggs from the chickens, and visiting the local brewery for the darkest, maltiest beer on tap. My favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch next to the master of my heart, watching the fire, reading, and…well…if you’re reading my books, you obviously know what else happens in front of fires.

Oh my, I do not even know were to begin. I has all kinds of emotions going on here so lets see it started off where I was crying within the first few chapters, then I cried a little more, which turned in to my blood boiling and had the need for revenge, but I have to say there was feel goods here too the love and understanding was amazing. I love all of these shifters Raid has my heart once again, Conal well let’s just say he is not so high on my list this time. So, Let’s talk about Lore for a second yep he just made my heart beat overtime for him. I truly think I have found my favorite.

Raid loves Theo and knows she is his true mate, but he made an agreement long before Theo came into his life. He is so dedicated to the Novus Pack and an honorable man that he would never go back on his word.  When the time came to honor the agreement, Theo knew she could not stay it would be the death of her. She asked to be sold to another pack and although Raid didn’t want to, he let her go.

Theo finally found a place that she loved, people that she loved and felt the same in return and now her world began to fall apart. She lost the one she loved and went to the new pack. From the moment she arrived she knew things would be different and she would be in trouble.

When things went from bad to worse for Theo. When Raid found out how bad things were for Theo there was no stopping him from helping her. The love of a family surrounded her loved her, but it just wasn’t enough. Theo was changed forever, and it was unknown if she would ever make her way back.

Raid was amazing in this one he was an Alpha first and foremost but the compassion, patients and tenderness he showed Theo brought tears to my eyes.  The love that was shown to Theo from everyone in the pack was incredible. My heart broke for everything Theo went through and overcame. She is a very strong survivor. What a gut-wrenching story. It hurt so much to see Raid and Theo give up the one thing that meant the most to them for the betterment of the family.

I’m going to switch gears and yes talk about Lore again.  I loved that we see a lot of him in this book and let me tell you I am so intrigued by him I need to know more; I need to know his story.  I am a sucker for the dark mysterious ones and there is something dark about Lore.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for us next but what ever it is I know it will be one turbulent ride.

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.

Lord.  I finished this book last night and I am still having a hard time trying to figure out how to word my review.  This book is absolutely everything a person who loves paranormal will want and need to read.  The emotional build of this story is so overwhelming I was in tears by 7% of the story and again I was bawling by 30%.  There is so much that happens to Theo and Raider.  SO much happens to the Novus Pack plus all the friends of the couple in this story.  It is impossible to read the story and leave it without being utterly stunned by the genius writing and flow.

I KNEW going in this book would have hard and difficult content.  Melanie kept apologizing to me for what I was about to read.  But the journey the couple takes IS needed for them both to realize they need the other to complete themselves.

Raider is so selfless in worrying for his people first he does the hardest thing he has ever done by letting Theo go.  Theo knows Raider and the Pack will not be ok unless she leaves so she makes the decision to leave for another Pack.  These two make the ultimate sacrifice, putting aside their love and desire for the other for everyone one else so Raider can keep his promise to another Pack.  When that sacrifice ends up costing Theo, she pays the highest price a women can pay, Raider and the pack come to aide THEIR Seer.

The couple deal with A LOT.  They deal with the guilt they both have.  They deal with the inability to express themselves for fear of what the other might be thinking or wanting.  They deal with miscommunication over everything they have been through.

This book is absolutely about love and the price people pay. It’s about commitment and how you don’t turn your back on those you love when times get hard.  It’s about loving people even when they don’t love themselves.  It’s about FAMILY and how even when you fight, you never really turn your back on those you love.

The emotions run deep in this story.  The laughs are hard to come by at times, but the bonds of love and family are throughout the story.   I will say seeing the set up for Lore’s mate……my heart was going pitter patter.  That mass murdering wolf, personal guard and tutor of Theo’s has a special place in my heart.  Also seeing Tex will be having a story later on down the road too made me happy.

I cannot wait for another book in the series.  I cannot wait for more from this pack and the characters.  It makes me so happy to be privileged to get early copies even if life sucks and I have to wait 2 weeks to read it.

OMG!!! These short stories are amazing and I love them. It is so nice to sit down when you just a little time and read these hot and steamy stories.

Gavin is chilling in back yard when he hears music and someone singing. Not used to the neighbors being loud and hearing that voice he had to investigate.  Tring to see over the top of the fence couldn’t quite see what he wanted to when a beauty popped up over the fence.

Lydia was watching her aunt and uncles house while they were away. When she finds herself in a bind only one she can thing to call on is the HOT silver fox next door.  Oh man does those sparks fly when this Wild girl hooks up with the hot old man.

This series is quick, dirty, insta-love and so much fun to read. So ready for the next one in this series.

Before my plans fall into place to court the woman who is destined to be my mate, one of my pride is taken and held for ransom.
That ransom is me.
I will do anything for my pride, but my little human mate puts herself in my place. When I find out that she has been taken, along with a young girl from my pride, I vow to bring them both home. My Guardians and I hunt to find my mate, save my pride, and deal out justice for those my enemy has harmed.
That is…if I’m not too late to save them both.

Goodreads

Amazon

Where has this series been or I must have been under a rock. I saw the cover of this box set and thought oh that looks like it would be good. Then I read the blurb. OH yes I need this one I mean really its panthers how can one resist a panther shifter. This one was wonderful.

Talon is the alpha of his pride. His pride has been outed to the world. Now he has to protect his pride along with appease the humans. There are those who are accepting of them those who are not and some that are down right pissed that he is talking about the shifter world. Lets face it the humans were to never know.

Liberty has lost a lot in last few years but she still has her sister and family bar. When it is made known there are panther shifters in their town she is not fazed by it. They are customers just like anyone else and no one will treat them any different in her bar. Anyone is welcome and will be treated as such. She has to emphasize this when one man threatens the panthers. Man do I love her take charge side. While protecting the panthers Talyon’s panther realizes this feisty woman is his mate. But how can that be he cannot be matted to a human.

Liberty if falling for Talon when one of their girls are kidnapped. Liberty decides to help the girl when she realizes they really want Talon. Liberty knows Talons pride cannot loose him so she decides to sacrifice herself to save him. Talon is in a tail spin when he realizes what Liberty has done and is on a war path to get his mate and the girl back. Will he make it in time to save them or will he be too late?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The way he agreed to woo her instead of claiming her as his panther demanded was heart warming.  He truly wanted to make her happy and if dating and getting to know her is what she wanted that is what he would do. His guardians were just as intriguing as Talon. I want to see them all find their true mates. I loved Talons younger brother Kye. He is going to be a fierce Alpha. I will have to wait to see if Kye gets his mate just like he has to. Oh my Winter is next and I cannot wait to read his story. I should be a good one.
