#WOTR18 #AuthorSpotlight #FREEbook- Attending Author Miranda Lynn @MirandaLynnBks

Miranda Lynn

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Miranda Lynn and I’m freaking awesome! That’s my daily mantra for 2018 anyway. I hate these questions. I’m a Taurus, I enjoy my coffee in the morning, chatting with my amazing author friends, blog bitches, and readers extraordinaire. I’m an average person, mom, wife, constantly working on myself and the characters I write. I’m a procrastinator, constantly trying to find what works to keep me organized and a hater of all things having to do with cleaning.

When and Why did you start to write?

I started really focusing on writing more than a journal page about five years ago. I was inspired by a group of Indie Authors that told me to just write the story I would want to read.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

JM Walker, Sandra Neeley, Theresa Hissong, LK Shaw, Charity Parkerson, Terry Maggert, Maggie Adams, hmm maybe I should just take a picture of my bookshelf and share there are so many.

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

How tedious revisions can be and what a horrible person I am with grammer. Thank heavens for great editors!!

What are you working on now?

I just finished Sterling who comes out January 15th. I am now working on revision a short story for a box set coming in the Summer and I have picked up the third and final book in the Destiny Trilogy.

Rook (Black Mountain Pack Book 2)

Blurb

Rook heads to South America and finds his hands full with bringing the Pride out of the dark ages that Tomas had kept it in for years under his malicious ruling. He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?

Sterling (Black Mountain Pack #3)

Sterling (Black Mountain Pack #3)

Blurb:

Feeling the need for a change, fox-shifter, Sterling accepts a mission in Texas to help a struggling pack’s club. The situation is worse than they thought when they arrive but when Sterling meets Reana he know he’s found he’s been given a second chance to have a mate . Too bad she doesn’t want one.

Reana is one of the few in her pack not effected by the black magic affecting them. When Sterling came to town, she thought he’d be the answer to their problems with the Resistance. She wasn’t expecting a possessive mate ready to settle down just when she’s ready to take off.

Time is running out and Sterling needs Reana’s help to save the pack before they’re forever trapped in this web of magic wreaking havoc on all their lives. But Reana isn’t sure she can accept fate and her mate, just as she’s ready to leave pack life behind for a life of solitude. Will Sterling change her mind and get his second chance? Or will Reana’s strong will keep them both from the happiness they deserve?

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Total Pantser. The only thing I plot are which characters get a book, hell I don’t even have an order. I tried that last year and my characters laughed hysterically and chose their own times to be written.

#NewRelease – Princess Witch, The Reigh Witch Chronicles Author: Billie Dale

Title: Princess Witch
Series: The Reigh Witch Chronicles
Author: Billie Dale
Genre: PNR / RomCom / NA / Mystery
Release Date: January 10, 2018 

What I want: Normalcy; to go to college and leave Erigate in my rearview mirror.


What I get: Acting Queen duties and a giant mess.

Mom’s pregnant and, with some unforeseen complications, she hands the reigns of her land over to me. It’s got to be easy, right? Do what my mother needs to be done for the sake of the kingdom, wait for her to deliver the baby, and then I’m off to college. 

Wrong, so very wrong. A murdered body left by a cold-blooded killer is found, throwing an uber wrench in my plans.

Now, I have extra security in the form of a hot, brooding shifter named Phoenix Winston, plus a super sexy half-alien/half-human hybrid – the one and only Declan Moore. 

My powers are amped, two men are making me question everything and I have a killer to catch. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I’ll either figure out what I’m doing or accidentally burn it all to the ground. Either way, my life just became interesting.



A small, plump woman, appearing to be around 35 years old, stands before me with a large pink pig on a leash next to her. “Your Highness,” she says dipping her knees in a curtsy. 

Her amber eyes are sparkling with mischief and my spidey sense is tingling. 

Wait, I have never had any kind of sixth sense before. 

I’ve never been able to pick up what someone was feeling. Pride is flowing from this woman in waves, she’s exuding exoneration. Whatever she’s done, she believes was right and merited. 

“This should be good,” Brooke speculates softly.

“What may I help you with today?” I ask.

“My husband thinks a woman’s place is in the home, cooking, and cleaning. He believes I shouldn’t have an opinion or a say in any matters involving our children. He thinks I’m to be seen and not heard. He’s under the delusion, it’s proper for a man to have an affair if his wife doesn’t obey and follow his rules,” she finishes holding tightly to the leash while the pig thrashes and squeals.

A headache begins to form from the loud screeching coming from the pig, “Ma’am, why have you brought that animal into the forum?” I whimper, covering one ear to block some of the noise.

“He’s registering his protest, my Queen,” she replies tugging hard on the lead causing the pig to choke.

“His protest, Madame? Why does this farm animal have a protest?”

“Because this is Harold, my husband,” she boasts.

My eyes move to the pig and back to the woman. I place my hand to my mouth to hide my smile, I need a second to compose myself and listening to Brooke’s twinkling laughter in my ear isn’t helping. Straightening my features so I can look the lady in the eye without busting out chuckling, I ask, “You turned your husband into a pig?”

“It seemed quite fitting, Highness. His beliefs were archaic,” she replies, her voice confident, convinced I’ll agree with her.

“Were you aware these were his beliefs when you wed and had children?”

“We’ve been married a very long time, don’t let my youthful appearance fool you. When we wed, women were meant to be in the home but that was decades ago and views on women have changed but Harold refuses to change with them. When he began having affairs, I decided he’d be better off as bacon.”
A stay at home mother of four who loves to read, blog, and write. Billie Dale is from a small blip of a town in no where Indiana. When she doesn’t have her nose buried in a book or glued to a keyboard she can be found cuddled up with her amazing husband of 14 years, loving on her sweet, sweet grandbaby or cheering for her kids sports.

#CoverReveal – Through The Woods by Shannon Myers

Forced to run from her drug-dealing boyfriend, Neve ends up injured and alone in the middle of the Colorado wilderness. She never planned on being rescued by seven bikers and brought to their clubhouse. While the other bikers welcome a female presence, their leader, Charm, is not impressed. As Neve recuperates, she begins to see that there’s much more to this club president than she thought possible. However, while she might’ve run, she can’t stay hidden forever.

Authors Amazon Page

Shannon is a born and raised Texan. She grew up inventing clever stories, usually to get herself out of trouble. Her mother was not amused. In junior high, she began writing fractured fairy tales from the villain’s point of view and that was the moment she knew that she was going to use her powers for evil instead of good.

In 2003, she moved to Denver and met the love of her life. After some relentless stalking and a few well-timed sarcastic remarks, the man eventually gave in to her charms and wifed her so hard. They welcomed a son in 2007 that they named after their favorite Marvel superhero, Spiderman.

Sick of seeing beautiful mountains through their window every day, the three escaped back to the desolate landscape of the west Texas desert in 2009. She welcomed her second son not long after and soon realized that being surrounded by three men was nothing at all like she’d imagined in her fantasies.

After an unplanned surgery in 2014 and a long pity party, she decided to pen a novel about the worst thing that could happen to a person in order to cheer herself up. She’s twisted like that. Thus, From This Day Forward was born and the rest, as they say, is history.

Not only does Shannon enjoy stalking people, she also has a fondness for being stalked. Visit her at www.shannonshaemyers.com to keep up with her latest schemes and shenanigans.

***COMING IN 2018 FROM ELLIS LEIGH WRITING AS KRISTIN HARTE***

In Justice, Colorado, the Kennards run everything, including the only big business in the area. Their sawmill employs most of the town, and the Kennard brothers live up to a long family history of keeping their neighbors and coworkers safe—until a motorcycle club comes to town and starts causing trouble. Big trouble. The kind that ends in funerals. The kind no law enforcement can help them with.

He carries the burden of protecting an entire town
Being the oldest Kennard brother, I’ve got a centuries-old promise to uphold—run the family business to give the townspeople jobs and the sort of security they can only find in Justice. When a motorcycle club blows that plan apart, I’ll do anything to make them aware that they picked the wrong town to target. As a former Green Beret, I know just how to sabotage an enemy. The only weakness in my armor is my obsession with a five-foot-nothing blonde who unknowingly holds my heart in her hands. My attraction to her could cost me my life, but I’d sacrifice it all to save hers.

She owes a debt that could cost her life
I’ve spent three years hiding out in Justice and paying off a debt to the Soul Suckers, one they’ve decided to collect whether I’m ready to pay or not. When danger lands on my doorstep, one man jumps in to help. Alder Kennard—former Special Forces soldier and current object of all my fantasies. But the Soul Suckers won’t let a debt go unpaid, and with the price on my head rising every day, it’s only a matter of time until they come back for me. Alder would put his life on the line to save mine, which is something I simply can’t afford.

Everyone has a debt to pay, and the only currency I have left is my body. So when the time comes, I’ll trade my life for his.

Goodreads

 

“I worry about you, honey.” 


My response came automatically, the lie too easy to tell. “You don’t need to.”


“I think I do. I think I can’t help myself.”


I shivered, entranced by Alder’s voice, by the look on his face, by how close he stood. The man had owned me since the first moment I met him, since that first day when he’d ordered a cup of coffee and smiled at me. He still did, and I was so sick of fighting my desire for him.


I took a deep breath and closed the gap between us, grabbing his arms as I pressed my breasts against that rock-hard chest I’d dreamed about too many times to count. Surrendering to him and praying he didn’t make me regret it. “So what are you going to do about it?”


He didn’t answer me—didn’t need to. He cupped my chin in one huge, rough hand, running his thumb over my lips as he kept his blue eyes locked on mine. Waiting. Looking for something. So I gave him the only thing I could—my approval. In the form of a kiss pressed to his thumb as it passed. His response was immediate.


Eyes gleaming, he dropped down to claim my mouth. I couldn’t call what he did a kiss. The word wasn’t big enough to encapsulate the way his entire body became involved in the act or how he dominated my lips, my tongue, my mouth. It wasn’t a kiss—it was a claiming. He plundered me. Hand on my face, one arm sliding around my waist to pin me to him, he attacked my mouth with an intensity that made me gasp. No soft pecks or easy start, no working his way up to anything—he overtook me, taking advantage of my quiet gasp to lick his way inside.


I could have died right then and there with his taste on my tongue and had no regrets. 


Heart racing, skin itching with the need to be touched by this man, I let go of all the voices telling me this could never happen, and I kissed him back. He groaned as I threaded my fingers in his hair and tugged him closer, his hands squeezing me hard enough to leave marks. Good, I wanted that. Wanted to see his claim on me. Needed the reminder that for one brief moment, I’d been his. Completely.


But Alder wasn’t satisfied with kissing, it seemed. Our tongues tangling, he turned me so my back was to the counter, then reached down to grab me by the thighs and hoist me up. My ass landed on the stainless steel, my legs spreading on instinct to give the

man room to step between them. And he did. 


And he was so damn hard.


“Give me permission,” he said, nibbling over my chin. “I won’t take from you, but if you let me…if you want me to.” He groaned, his hips jerking against mine almost of their own volition. “Give me permission, honey. Tell me I can feel you. Let me take care of you so I can watch you come.”

Kristin Harte started off as a chemistry major in college but somehow ended up writing romances featuring ex-military heroes and the women who knock them to their knees…literally and figuratively. She likes drinking in the shade, snuggling under a warm blanket on a cold evening, and researching how to blow things up. Her children know nothing of what she writes, and her husband just hopes he’s not at their Chicago-ish home the day the government shows up to confront Kristin about her Google search history.
When not writing good men doing bad things, Kristin can be found writing paranormal romance as Ellis Leigh or co-writing naughty novellas as London Hale.

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

I love this series and of course Others of Edenton. Brandy has a way of capturing me and taking me away with her characters.  She has strong willed women and protective males.

In the previous book Amelia was turned into a vampire and now the Council needs her help to solve a case. This puts Brent and Amelia together to work closely on this case. The draw that keeps pulling these two together is unavoidable. Brent is cautious when it comes to Amelia and them binding he only wants it to happen if that is what she really wants and not because of an assignment. Not only does this assignment bring her and Brent closer but Amalia is faced with Eamon who tries to get her to be with him by helping to unlock her past.

The twist and turns kept me wondering what was going to happen. Loved Amelia and Brent together and to see their story unfold was incredible. I was so enthralled when both Amelia and Brent’s back story came to light. The thing that was most amazing was what Brent and Amelia has to be able to pull off for this assignment to work. I have to say it the one think I love about this series and Others of Edenton Series is how well Brandy entwines the characters from both series. I cannot wait for her next book she has a way of telling a brilliant story not matter if it is her paranormal or her contemporary.

#review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan #FreeBook – Too Easy by Willow Winters

Too Easy

WHORE, SLUT, AN EASY LAY… I’VE BEEN CALLED A LOT OF THINGS.

It turns me on most when a man says it while he’s taking me from behind.

People say there’s a reason I am the way I am.
And sure, some stuff happened to me.
Some messed up sh*t I’d never wish on anyone.
But I’ve been like this long before that night.

That’s not what this story’s about, though.
You think you know? You don’t know a thing.
Let’s start from the beginning, all about how I asked for it.

From USA Today and Wallstreet Journal best selling author Willow Winters comes an emotional dark romance.
Too Easy is a 7,500 word prologue to the standalone, She Asked for It.

Goodreads

Amazon

Review by Jordan

Great prequel. Looks like it could become a great book or series even. Clean cut girl has the desires of being naughty. This could become great and I really enjoyed the sneak peek of She Asked for It. I can’t wait to see where things go.

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!

 

#WOTR18 #TwinsieForTheDayJordan #Review – Hell by Elena M. Reyes

Hell

How do I dominate and enamor the woman who’s in charge of signing my paycheck?

That’s the one question Joshua Timbers has been asking himself since he first stepped foot into his own personal Hell. JT, or Yoshi—as his tormentor likes to call him—has lived a life of hardship and loss since an early age. Being the product of a single-parent home, he’s accustomed to hard work and lonely nights.

Seeing the strong man that raised him suffer after the loss of his mother made JT’s own heart harden. All that mattered was seeking instant gratification to curb his enormous appetite.

Until the blessed day he met his fallen angel, Janelle.

Beautiful, and with balls bigger than her entire crew, Janelle is accustomed to the leering looks of men, even though she’s their boss—the owner of Walker Construction, alongside her brother.

Her beauty is untouchable to everyone, but how far will Joshua go to bend his hellion to his will and make her his?

Review by Jordan

When Joshua decides to move across the country and start over with a new construction company, he had no clue his life would change in the best and worst ways. First day at a new job and he already wants change everything he’s ever thought about relationships. Janelle will be a daily reminder that life could be different. But they both need to get past their stubbornness to make this thing work. I was instantly drawn in by the tension these two created. This story was cute and funny, as well as tense and sexy. I loved it!

Elena M. Reyes was born and raised in Miami Florida. She is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued with all forms of art—whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her first taste of writing came to her during her fifth grade year when her class was prompted to participate in the D. A. R. E. Program and write an essay on what they’d learned.
Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world. She now resides in Central Florida with her husband and son, spending all her down time letting her creativity flow and letting her characters grow.

My review of these 10 awesome authors

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I need to get my motor running.
Literally.
All I want is to learn how to build engines,
Cars, motorcycles–anything.
You name it; I want to feel it rev in my hands.
Fabricate it into something mine,
Bend it to my will,
Create what hasn’t been built before.

But nobody takes me seriously,
And I’m no damsel in distress.
I can and will get my hands dirty,
Very dirty.

And now, I have that chance,
Working with Jesse Valentine,
Top motorcycle and hot rod fabricator.
But he’s got a reputation for more,
Much more.

After all, he’s nothing but a cocky,
Overinflated jerk,
And I’m just interested in mechanics,
Cold, hard, machines.
I was born to bend, build, create,
And I won’t change for anyone,
Not even him.

 

My 5 star Review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

 

My 5 star review

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He doesn’t remember.
In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.
The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.
Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.
Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.
When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

 

My review of this WOTR Author

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a MAFIA romance. In addition to several scenes with strong sexual content, there are also scenes involving violence, death, gun play, mention of sexual abuse, and adult language. Due to the nature of this book, it is intended for 18+ audiences only***

My name is Dash.

The Vitaliev Bratva had always been a part of my life, but I was never a part of it. My father built it from the ground up, and while he never hid what the family business was, he never wanted my life to be tainted by it.

But my father forgot one thing.

I’m also a Vitaliev.

Everything I hold dear has been targeted since my father’s death—my business, my friends, and the peaceful world I’ve built for myself. But it wasn’t until the love of my life, Polo Scorpeone, was struck down by a sniper’s bullet that I realized being a Vitaliev isn’t a curse. It’s a strength.

I will face my hidden enemy with the Vitaliev fire of old, and I’ll do it with the most powerful lethal weapon Chicago’s underworld has ever known by my side.

Come to find out, the legendary Scorpio is hard to kill.

The riotously funny debut from the drinking star with a YouTube problem.

Since launching her YouTube channel “You Deserve a Drink” in 2011, comedian Mamrie Hart has built an intensely devoted following of more than half a million viewers. Like her bawdy and bacchanalian show, Hart’s eponymous debut pays tribute to her boozy misadventures with an original cocktail recipe accompanying each hilarious tale. From the “Leaves of Three Martini,” commemorating the hookup to whom she accidentally gave poison ivy, to the “Bizzargarita,” in honor of the time she and a friend were approached by two uber-Republican couples who wanted to “swing” while on vacation in Mexico, You Deserve a Drink is as useful as it is entertaining.

The Montgomery Ink series by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues when the final Denver Montgomery sibling refuses to fall for his brother’s former flame—the company’s new plumber.

Wes Montgomery watched his entire family fall in love, and now finds himself ready to settle down. Except the one person he seems to find chemistry with is not only his twin’s ex, she also works for Montgomery Inc. But when the two find themselves in one compromising situation after another, Wes realizes he’s having second thoughts about the dynamic woman who’s burst her way into his life. Sure she sets off his temper, but she also makes him hot in every other way possible.

Jillian Reid never loved her best friend like everyone thought she should, so she pushed him away so he could have his future. Now, despite fighting it, she finds herself attracted to the one man she shouldn’t. When her father’s health takes a turn for the worse, and a danger no one saw coming show its face, she’s forced to turn to Wes for help. The two of them have fought off their attraction long enough, and each cave to the desire. But this enemies-to-lovers tale might have an ending no one ever dreamed of.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains flashbacks of violence and drug abuse, and the impact of these factors on family members. If you have issues with these elements, this book is not for you.

Chicago’s premiere tattoo studio, House Of Payne, is across the street from the Mad Cow diner, but it might as well be on another planet as far as waitress Paradise Simone is concerned. She’s a good girl from Waukegan with a past she’d rather forget, and a future that goes only as far as the next day. What does she know about superstars and paparazzi?

But Pari does know danger when she sees it, and tattooist Max Kulagin has it written all over him. A proper Waukegan girl should know to steer well clear, but she can’t resist Max when he leaves beautiful, intimate art sketched out on cheap diner napkins.

Beautiful, intimate art…of her.

Max knows ugliness. He was born in it. Raised in it. Had it shoved down his throat every goddamn day. So when he stumbles across true beauty, he worships it. There’s a deep sensuality in the waitress who likes to suck on her pen whenever he’s around, and he’s just the man to bring that beauty out in her. She might be a lady in the street, but one look at Pari tells him she’s going to be a freak in the bed.

And in the shower.

And while he’s driving with her head going to town in his lap.

The life Max leads might be in the spotlight, but it’s Pari who gets caught in the glare. When her past catches up to her, it’s her life that holds all the excitement, and not in a good way. But there’s no force on earth that can take Max’s beautiful Paradise away now that he’s finally found it.

#review #NewRelease #Historical #Regency – THE MADAME CATCHES HER DUKE by Christina McKnight

 

Title: The Madame Catches Her Duke

Series: Craven House

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency

Release Date: January 4, 2018

THERE’S A FINE LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.

Despite being thrown from her home and stripped of her place in society at a young age, Madame Marce Davenport is proud of what she’s accomplished with her family and the notoriously scandalous Craven House. Except it’s all built on a lie. When an arrogant duke strode into her home years ago, offering her a way to keep the brothel open, she agreed to his game of deception. But now that her siblings have found their happiness, Marce can finally live the life she’s always wanted: one that embraces the truth. And that means severing ties with the man who has claimed too many of her days—both in reality, and fantasy.

Rowan Delconti, the Duke of Harwich, has been angry for so long: at his father, at the woman who broke apart his parents’ marriage, and at the children who won is father’s love. He’s determined his mother won’t be unhappy again—even if it means pretending to be married to Marce, so that his mother will think he’s found love in his life. But the beautiful madame fuels his fire like no other, and the charade starts to feel all too real.

When Marce and Rowan’s secrets finally come to light, their passion may not be enough to staunch the hurt of the past. Can two people who were so wrong for each other, realize they’ve been right all along?

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

I have been waiting for this book since we first met Marce!  I was so excited to finally get this book in my hands, so I could sit, and binge read it during a snowy day and evening.  This book was everything and then more then I could have hoped for.

Marce is the big sister who will do anything to make sure he siblings are well taken care of and provided for.  While doing this she is also keeping a huge secret from them regarding their mother and her past as the Madame of Craven House.  We know Marce has been seeing a dashing looking man and even warned her sisters away from this man but to finally get to know him….eeeeppppp so excited!!

However, once we got to KNOW the man was to not like the man.  His hate and need for revenge was crazy so I was wondering how in the heck Christina could make him likeable and even redeemable.  However, she does it and I felt my heart slowly melting for the Duke AKA Rowan AKA the blackmailer douche bag!!

Rowan lives his life by a black and white code.  EVERYTHING is in black and white so to see the Grey fringes that Marce lives in is not even thinkable.  Rowan has a lot of growing in this book as a person and as a man.  Marce has a lot of learning as well.  She learns that not all is what it seems and even the most confident man can be and will be broken at times.

I was so excited with how everything flowed with this book.  I loved Tobias and I especially loved Rowan’s mom.

Christina McKnight is a book lover turned writer. From a young age, her mother encouraged her to tell her own stories. She’s been writing ever since.

Christina enjoys a quiet life in Northern California with her family, her wine, and lots of coffee. Oh, and her books…don’t forget her books! Most days she can be found writing, reading, or traveling the great state of California.

Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.

But if we’re talking technicalities, he wasn’t supposed to be cheating on her every other weekend, either.

The day I met Mira York, I knew she was off-limits. But after months of stealing side-glances while he ruined the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen, I realized there wasn’t a rule in the world I wouldn’t break to make her mine.

She chose him anyway.

I wasn’t sure how I’d ever move on, but bitterness turned into fuel for my fire.

Without Mira, I thrived.

Until seventeen years later, when she showed back up, begging for protection from the very same man she’d left me for all those years earlier.

Now, it was my turn to choose.

And she wasn’t going to like my answer.

THRIVE takes place seventeen years AFTER a love triangle.
