#WOTR18 #PreOrder – Once Upon a Twisted Time

Savannah Verte, Christine Alvarez,  and Jolanthe Aleksander

Releasing May 8, 2018

Once Upon A Twisted Time #OUATT
Drawing from a well of myth and legend, each of these 15 USA
Today and NYT Best Selling Authors, has put their own twist on a story from childhood.

Beast Underneath by Julie Morgan

An impossible spell. An unwanted lover. A dark tale in the making. Nightmares can frighten even the bravest of men, but when dreams become reality, Bella will not know whether she is asleep… or awake. When a mysterious man ventures to Paris, havoc will shake Bella to her core. All malicious activities point to her, but she has no memory of it. Her only ally is her husband, Adrian. As the spell is moments from fruition, Adrian offers to take her place. Meddling with magic, after all, always comes with a price.

 

Love Is For The Birds by Angelica Dawson

Odette’s story has been made famous by Tchaikovsky, but what if there were more to the story? What if Odette got a second chance at happiness? What if she had a friend to share all her trials and tribulations?

Anna and Vlad each stand in the shadow of their friends, but together they have a fairy tale all their own.

 

Mine Before Midnight By: Amy L Gale

Ember Gray dreams of escaping the only world she’s ever known, the Chrome Crusaders Motorcycle Club, until tragedy strikes and she’s trapped with her malicious stepmother and two stepsisters. Confined to the house every night by midnight, Ember is subjected to their constant abuse with no way out.

Cruz Jackson takes what he wants when he wants it. As president of the Nevada chapter of the Chrome Crusaders, he lives for the moment total freedom, no rules, and no regrets.

Sparks fly at an MC wedding when best man Cruz is paired with Ember, the maid of honor. Enticed by her sharp tongue and perfect body he can’t resist anything about her but before he can seal the deal, Ember takes off without warning leaving behind a studded black stiletto. Armed with one of her shoes, Cruz sets off to find the woman who captivates his soul but gets more than he bargained for when he’s thrown into chaos, conspiracy, and murder.

Will he toss his club loyalties to the wind to save Ember or does it all end at midnight?

 

Mended by Emily Cyr

Marin has spent her life inexplicably feeling like a part of her very being was tattered. As a result, she has dedicated her life to restoring antique art and has become the best in her field.

However, a life of repairing broken paintings isn’t enough to fill the void within, and Marin finds herself on her first vacation ever. This was meant to be the trip where she could finally mend the part of herself that’s missing.

Hours after repairing an ancient tapestry at a quaint bed and breakfast, she grows incomprehensibly tired, and wakes up to realize she’s not in her room, with no memory of when or how she left. The strange night isn’t what worries Marin most, though – it’s the fact that she’s woken up as something far from human and has suddenly had her eyes opened to a world she couldn’t see before, one filled with witches, bear-shifters, and hunters.

Now, Marin must choose which life she wants. She can embrace her new self and finally feel whole, but will always be hunted by someone hell-bent on revenge. Or she can go back to the comfortable life she once knew, and be the downfall of an entire race. Only Marin can make the choice, before it’s too late.

 

Keys to Her Heart by Lori King

The Prince…

Evan Blake has never wanted for anything. He’s never been hungry or made do with hand-me-downs. Born into generations of determined, successful businessmen, he’s charged with keeping his family’s legacy intact and building on it. It isn’t until his high-school crush returns to town, that he realizes he needs more…

The Pauper…

Walker Ash has scraped for everything he owns. Every day is a test of his ability to charm his way through life, because it’s the only thing he’s never had a shortage of. She was his teenage wet dream, and now she’s his adult craving…

The Challenge…

Best friends since elementary school, Walker and Evan have always been at odds over their different lifestyles, but one drunk bet will have them swapping lives for a day. The challenge has been accepted, and the prize is one worth winning. Which man will walk away with the keys to her heart?

 

Severed Hearts by Elizabeth Raven

Come. Sit down, and join me for a story. Please, forgive me if it seems a bit gory. This ghastly tale is thanks to the Brother’s Grimm. Hold on to your organs, life, and limbs! Fret not, Dear Reader. The bloody beginning does not persist, and the rest of the tale you simply can’t resist. Settle in, and cast all doubt aside, as we embark on one hell of a ride! No time for squeamishness or personal aversions, lest you risk never knowing the fate of Lily and the Three Army Surgeons.

 

Snow by Erzabet Bishop

Fairytales can bite…

To look to the future, sometimes you have to unearth the secrets of the past.

Snow longs to find a true love of her own, but when her father returns from war with a new bride, her carefully planned out life slips through her fingers. Her new stepmother, the Queen, harbors a dangerous secret. One malicious kiss sends Snow tumbling into a sinister landscape of dark desires and a new manifestation that can save her or destroy everything she’s ever held dear.

Darkness can hide the most sultry of nights.

Gideon and his men guard the king, but even they can’t protect him from his murderous new bride. When the castle falls prey to the Queen’s ire, they find themselves under the spell of the moon. Can they harness their new reality to protect the newest target of the Queen’s wrath, or will they once again be victims of her unholy power play?

 

The Huntress & The Frog by Louisa Bacio

One more job and Melody plans to retire her fighting knives. Her final mission is to protect an elitist prince until he finds his mate. But there’s more to his royal highness than meets the eye.

Victor needs to marry a princess in order to break the curse of the voodoo king of New Orleans. Instead, he gets a huntress.

In a wicked case of opposites attract, the adult version of this classic tale proves the power of pleasure.

 

Breathe Me to Life by Jolanthe Aleksander

Ailsa was biding her time when the call of the music floating on the wings of the night’s wind led her to a moonlit glen and another world.

Kellan, Prince of the Fae Court, was tired and bored with things as they were until a young woman not only sparked his interest but his desire to finally claim a mate.

Two souls find in each other a connection unlike any other.

A chance encounter brought them together. A dream created a bond. Will the jealousy of one who was scorned tear them apart? Or will love’s kiss breathe life into a sleeping beauty?

 

Red by Tara Vasser

In the aftermath of a tragic car accident, Red is resurrected by a Vampire. As repayment for her second life, she spends a decade being groomed to serve as a peace offering between enemies.

Upon arrival at the estate of her betrothed, Red soon realizes the cruelty of her husband-to-be and the sterility of his manse are more than she can bear. Seeking refuge, she flees to the woods where nothing is as it seems. There, she is drawn to a dangerous figure shrouded in secrecy. It is within the trees where Red will discover who is predator and who is prey.

 

Jess Haines

Time can change anyone’s story. Even mine.

Once upon a time, there was a forest with an enchanted lake whose waters brimmed with secrets…

There are many versions of my story. You may have heard that an evil wizard transformed a princess into a swan. Or perhaps the tale of a witch who turned a beautiful queen into a white duck to take her royal place at the side of the king. Or that a prince stole a woman’s veil to prevent her from transforming into a bird and flying away from him.

A little truth may be sprinkled in all these tales. I cannot speak for them all.

But this one is mine.

 

Twelve by Savannah Verte

Lyford Rousseau needs a son. He has thirty years to fulfill an agreement or lose his kingdom forever. Multiple wives and a dozen children later, he learns the price of deception, and of apathy. Will it cost him everything?

This version of the Twelve Dancing Princesses twists what you thought you knew from your childhood fairy tales and shows what the good king was really worried about. It wasn’t dance slippers. There’s more dirty than a dance in this twisted tale.

 

Alice Goes to Hell by: Christine Alvarez

When Alice learns that a recent murder of a stripper has an uncanny resemblance to a cold case dubbed The Wonderland Murders, she doesn’t hesitate before jumping down the rabbit hole of a mad man’s story.
Desperate to solve her mother’s murder and finally bring down the man who turned her favorite childhood fairytale into a horror story, she works to interpret the clues he’s left just for her.
But even with the help of her fiancé Tony, Alice always seems to be running late, until the mad man himself invites her to a tea party of his own making.

 

Jak the Giant Healer by Rebekah R. Ganiere

Sometimes it takes being kidnapped to figure out who you were meant to be.

Jak has spent her life as her father’s live in babysitter. But when he loses her in a card game to the man she’s refused for the last year, Jak refuses to take it lying down. Things only seem to go downhill when Jak when she’s kidnapped by the Jätte and taken to their kingdom in the sky.

Stefan is the heir to the crown of Luften. His only desire has been to heal his father and save his kingdom. But when the fiery Jak arrives from the ground kingdom of Fairelle, everything Stefan thinks he wants shifts with one look at her.

Jak needs nothing more than to find her place in the world, Stefan only needs to save his kingdom. Together they might just find a life worth living.

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.

93,000 Words

***This standalone, mildly erotic contemporary romance contains a woman with an oral fixation and a man who’s happy to encourage it. There are multiple sex scenes that include oral sex. No cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen***

So many hotties all in one awesome Anthology and for a great cause!!!

Devoted to Wicked by Shayla Black
Shayla Black has given us a returning glimpse into her Wicked Loves world with Karis and Cage, making me one happy lady!!
Stuck in Mexico after her passport is stolen Karis just wants to get a new one and go home. Cage is sent to help her, he also plans to find out why she has been ignoring him since their time together at New Years.
Both of them felt something they’ve never felt before and all it took was not communicating to almost screw up a future together. Karis has been walled up tighter then Fort Knox after thinking she saw Cage with another woman, but when they actually talk about it she finds out that he was actually being there for a friend.
I love how fast these two figure out they belong together after they talk about New Years!! I also love how Cage is a yummy knight in shining armor saving her from a stalker she picked up in Mexico.

Countdown by Lexi Blake
Omg, omg!!!!!!! I’m dead, totally dead!!! Now that I’ve said that, let me tell you about Ben and the girl he calls Maggie. Set in a not to distance future, Ben is a Agent for Canadian Intelligence and Maggie is his American counterpart. At times they’ve worked together and at times Maggie has been against him, but now they are working together again to stop a mad man that has developed a new anthrax formula.
Ben has always been attracted to Maggie but he’s never done anything about it, until now. Maggie has been waiting for Ben to let her know how he feels no now this is their last chance. When breaching the mad man’s compound triggers a bomb that only gives them a hour to live, they decided to spend that hour wisely. How you may ask, why by doing what they should have been doing since they met!!! The explosion at the end is something that you do not wanna miss!!!
What Lexi Blake has done, has just blown my mind and now I need more!!! GET BACK TO WRITING MISSY!!! LOL!!!

Power Struggle By Mari Carr

#ReleaseDay #Review #Anthology Once Upon a Valentine Anthology: Love, Honor, and Ink (Montgomery Ink 6.6) Carrie Ann Ryan

 100% of earned royalties go directly to the American Society of Autism to help fund programs that support families with children on the spectrum. Help us educate and make a difference one dollar at a time.
BRAND NEW BOOKS from some of your favorite paranormal and contemporary romance authors!

In a bonus Montgomery Ink novella, it seems that falling for your best friend isn’t as easy as fiction says and friends of the Montgomerys might finally find their happy ever after.

Wedding planner Arianna King had everything planned out down to the last detail until her father’s ultimatum changed everything. Being in love with your best friend isn’t always easy as Harper Rosso knows.

Sparks fly between the two of them once they finally take their relationship to the next level. Only the burning temptation than fills them might not be enough in the face of what they left behind and what threatens their future.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

This lovely little Montgomery Ink nugget is in the Valentine’s Day anthology Once Upon a Valentine.
Arianna King is the granddaughter of a woman who started a wedding planning business which turned into a company ran by her father called King’s Weddings.
She has been the woman behind the man for so long and now that her father is stepping down she can run the business her way, her father however does not have the same plan. The business is to be sold to their rivals Honor Designs and she is gone or Ari can marry douche canoe Justin Rosso and become president and owner of the company. She’s always known her father didn’t love her, but she never in a million years expected this, to make her choose between the company or herself!! She does the only things she sees she can do and quits!!!
Harper Rosso is the douche canoe’s brother but he is nothing like him and is Ari’s best friend and neighbor. He also works for Storm and Wes at Montgomery Inc. I have come to the conclusion that is a prerequisite that any man that is any way associated with Montgomery Ink or Montgomery Inc must be H.O.T. They grow them yummy in Denver!!!!
Ari and Harper have been best friends since they were young and Harper has been in love with her for a very long time, he’s just never told her how he feels. He has always done what is best for her, helped her when she needs it, and this time is no different.
He gets her to believe in herself and her dream of small and intimate weddings, believe so strong that she starts her own business Just for Them.
Along the way of starting her business and planning her first weddings, she starts to realize that her feelings for Harper aren’t just a best friends feelings but those of a woman and a man, something that he gladly helps her with.
It’s always great when best friends fall in love. To me it’s a strong bond only made stronger with that love. Harper and Ari seem made for each other and that is the way it should be. I love this series and I can’t wait for more.
If all of the stories in this anthology are this good then it will be awesome!!!

Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

Year of the Scorpio: Part One by Stacy Gail

***TRIGGER WARNING: This is a DARK 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***
They call me Dash.

Sixteen years ago my brother and I were kidnapped. The Scorpeones believed our father, boss of the Vitaliev Bratva, could be pressured into relinquishing his hold on Chicago’s underworld.

They were dead wrong.

Ultimately the Scorpeones made the youngest of their family pay for their sins. I tried not to care. Marco Polo Scorpeone, the hostage whose life was forfeit if his family moved on the Vitalievs, was the enemy. Why should I care if he was tortured worse than a prisoner of war?

Except I did care.

For sixteen years I’ve cared, more than I can say.
They call me Scorpio.

There was no light in my world. Then I saw Dash smile.

No voice could pierce my darkness. Then I heard Dash speak.

I’ve killed to survive. Killed to please my handler. Hell, I’ve killed to please myself. Killing is what I do.

I know I’m not good enough for Dash, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that she’s mine, from now until the end of time. But that time might be nearer than I think, because someone deadlier than me is closing in…

Author’s Note: This is the first half of a two-part story arc. YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART ONE ends on a cliffhanger, which will be concluded in YEAR OF THE SCORPIO: PART TWO. You have been warned.

She wants out.
Her world fell apart when King’s Harlots no longer trusted her, but she continues to fight to gain back their respect.
All she wants is to help those wronged by the evil that has put a shadow on everyone she knows.

Love Restored: A Gallagher Brothers Novel by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the first of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a broken man uncovers the truth of what it means to take a second chance with the most unexpected woman…

Graham Gallagher has seen it all. And when tragedy struck, lost it all. He’s been the backbone of his brothers, the one they all rely on in their lives and business. And when it comes to falling in love and creating a life, he knows what it’s like to have it all and watch it crumble. He’s done with looking for another person to warm his bed, but apparently he didn’t learn his lesson because the new piercer at Montgomery Ink tempts him like no other.

Blake Brennen may have been born a trust fund baby, but she’s created a whole new life for herself in the world of ink, piercings, and freedom. Only the ties she’d thought she’d cut long ago aren’t as severed as she’d believed. When she finds Graham constantly in her path, she knows from first glance that he’s the wrong kind of guy for her. Except that Blake excels at making the wrong choice and Graham might be the ultimate temptation for the bad girl she’d thought long buried.

Received a copy for a honest review

Ok, so this is Mrs. Teresa Gabelman’s contribution to the Taming the Vampire box set, one of 25 books by some fabulous authors, out just in time for Halloween.

This book is about Maverick, a vampire and Becky, a human. Once upon a time Maverick was human and they were in love, but Maverick was turned and pushed her away to keep her safe.
First let me say that Maverick being a Vamp doesn’t change the fact that he’s a dude and dudes think they know what’s best when it comes to the safety of the women they love.
Second, hello another group of sexy vamps from one of queens of sexy vampires.
Maverick, once human now vampire, is a part of the Enforcers. If Gabelman’s vampires were law enforcement the VC Warriors would be the Feds and the Enforcers the local law enforcement. They are after a certain group of vamps and Becky just happens to be caught in the middle.
The action starts right off the bat, I love the reactions that Becky and Maverick have to each other after the time they’ve been apart. The way they feel about each, like in real life, hasn’t changed due to time and circumstance.
The new vampires are funny as heck, they protect the good guys, and love hard. I for one have my fingers crossed for more of the Enforcers, whether they are on their own or intergraded in with the Protectors, hint hint!! . Oh, and Becky by the way kicks ass, literally!!! Love a strong woman who knows what and who she wants.
When men, be they human or vampire, realize that no matter what happens to you a woman who loves you will always love you, magic happens.

The Enforcer by Teresa Gabelman

 

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

Oh Teresa you and your vampires….I mean you know I love me some VC Warrior Jared in The Protectors series but these new guys…Can I get a hells YES to them!!  OMG!!  I am thinking ol’ Dusty may be my new baby daddy in this series too!!!

SO this is a new series by one of my favorite paranormal writers.  If you love her other series, you are going to need to jump into this series as well.  The Enforcers are tough, big and uber alpha plus super funny. Maverick has loved Becky forever but he disappeared due to being changed.  When he sees her with the bad guy he and his Enforcer friends have to figure out her connection to James.

Becky is still not over Maverick.  He left her and she has no clue why.  When she is forced to spend time with him to protect her from some bad people, she has to deal with her heart falling all over him again and the devastation she will feel when he leaves.

This story is a GREAT into the new vampire series.  I can’t wait for more!!

Melinda's Review

Teresa Gabelman – The Enforcer

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

I love Teresa Gabelman’s Protector’s and even her Lee County Wolves but there Enforcers are going to be some competition. Although Maverick was great I’m thinking Dusty is going to the top of my list.

This is about Maverick who was absolutely in love with Becky. Until one night his life changes and he disappears from Becky’s life. She is heartbroken for months. You see Maverick was changed in to a vampire and he decided his life was too dangerous for his Becky. He though the only way to protect her from him and his new life was to leave her. Until one night she is tossed into his world and planted right in front of him. Now he has no choice but to protect her and keep her safe.

Becky will have to endure his presents and deal with the heart break all over again when he leaves her again because she knows it will be coming.

What a great series I loved Becky’s sass, stubbornness, and fight. She is a strong female that can stand on her own feet and stand up to big bad vampires. The vampires are wonderful too and I cannot wait to get to know then better.

Received a copy for a honest review

Oh my God!! 6 awesome stories set around one Hotel in Vegas. Someone please tell me this place and staff are real because as Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon would say “I want to go to there!”. The Nyte Resort is all about making your fantasies realized and boy do they!!
The stories all blend together into one amazing book. Before I start discussing the books make sure you have these 3 things handy; A fan, a cold drink, and a towel. Why you ask, because these stories are HOT!!!

Winner Takes All by Mari Carr
Carr continues with the Lewis family from her Big Easy series with Noah Lewis. Noah is a chef who is competing in a on air cooking competition and is one of the finalist along with Hollie Mills. It’s great how you can tell that Noah and Hollie are friends along with competitors and how they both during the course of the show fell for each other.
Having been put up in the same hotel room, unbeknownst to them, for having the same fantasy the decide to go with it and see it where it takes them. Where it takes them is into some HOT BDSM.
Who wins the show? Well they decide they need more than just one night? Ya gotta read to find out!!! Now, by my count we have one Lewis family member left, fingers crossed that Carr continues her Big Easy series!!

Stud Poker by Red Phoenix
Master Anderson, Boy just saying his name makes me hot!!
On his way to L.A. Be the new Headmaster at the Submissive training center, he stops for the night in Vegas at Nyte for what he is hoping a relaxing evening of no women.
He meets Shey Allen when his male masseuse is called away for the evening.
Who knew a card game could turn out so fun, Instead of money they bet questions or wants.
By the end of the story I’m wanting Shey to leave her job and family in Vegas to go with Master Anderson it L.A., that’s how awesome these two are from the start. They have such chemistry and Shey has absolute trust that he will give her what she needs for the night.
Master Anderson was always one of my favorite characters in Red’s Brie series and I so glad we get a taste of him here.
I’m saying taste because Red is naughty as always leaving me wanting MORE!!
Wild Card by Angel Payne
Wild Card is part of a Series that I have never read called The Wild Boys of Special Forces. That being said I wasn’t lost or anything.
Jen Thorne is at Nyte for her BFF’s wedding and who happens to be there but her hunky Scottish crush Sam Mackenna. Helloooooooooooo, did you hear me I said Scottish. I’m swooning before I even started because I know there’s gonna be two things: a sexy kilt scene and a even sexy accent!!
They decide on one night of fantasy together and boy do fantasies come true, for me that is be yep KILT SCENE!!!
These two are great and I love that we get to see them in their own environment after their one night.

Hard Hand by Sierra Cartwright
Avery Fisher is a shy sub who had never been brave enough to approach the Dom of her dreams Cole Stewart, but being at Nyte for her Aunt’s masquerade birthday party she feels brave behind her mask. What Avery do sent know is Cole would know who was mask or no mask.
Cole and Avery scene together for one night and boy is it a awesome night. He does everything in hopes that she’ll reveal herself to him.
With this story we also get to see more of the characters after their night at Nyte and it’s great.
Does Avery finally reveal her identity? You gotta read to find out!!!

Sin City Submission by Jenna Jacob
This story is part of one of my favorite series Doms of Genesis.
With Quinn and Ava we have a established relationship both business and pleasure.
The whole idea of their time at Nyte is to push their boundaries as they have become complacent in their roles as Master and submissive.
You can tell that these two love each other a great deal and it’s good to see even fictional characters have to work on their relationships they all aren’t happily ever after.

No Lucky Number by Victoria Blue
This is part of another series I’ve never read called The Secrets of Stone. Once again not having read the series doesn’t lessen the greatness of the story.
Here we have 3 business partners Talia, Drake, and Fletcher. They are at Nyte for a convention for work. Drake and Fletcher are yummy and they are good little boys you like to share. Talia is attracted to both men but she keeps hearing her mother in her head telling her that it’s wrong so she’s fighting it. She also has been hurt in the past and is afraid to trust her heart.
What she doesn’t know is that Drake and Fletcher don’t just wanna have a fun time in Vegas they want a real relationship with Talia, whom they’ve come to adore while working together.
Does Talia give in and start trusting her heart again or does she listen to her head? Ya gotta read to find out.

There is only a few things left to say after reading this anthology: I have found two new authors to add to my TBR list and someone PLEASE write a story about the mysterious Mr. Nyte!!! Please I’m begging I gotta know more about him and the staff at this awesome resort.

Winner Takes All by Mari Carr

Noah enters Food Fight, a new cooking competition show airing on the Food Network. When he makes it to the finals, he scores a trip to Vegas to compete. Problem is fellow finalist Hollie has captured his attention—in and out of the kitchen.

As the competition heats up, so does the sexual tension between Hollie and Noah. One night in Vegas, their simmering need explodes into full boil. But in this contest, winner takes all. Will they choose fame over forever? Or will they claim an even bigger prize?

angies review

I received this book from an honest review.

AHHH WOW DID I JUST READ ALL OF THAT!!  Uhm Yes, Yes I did!!

This book introduced me to two new authors (Mari and Sierra) but let me enjoy authors (Red, Angel, Jenna and Victoria) whose books make my erotica loving heart super happy!!

I can’t even begin to break this down except to say that each story is uniquely different.  Each story you read is so amazing and the only thing they have in common is the hotel.

Jenna’s story made me crazy (In a good way) because the couple has hurdles to overcome to get their HEA.

Red’s story touches on one of my FAVORITE side characters in her very popular series.  I am so hoping to see this character and his fantasy female again.

Angel’s story made me giggle because her characters are always just so funny!!  I mean the woman brings the humor to her stories.

 Victoria’s story made my heart beat because the female was so confused by feeling the way she did over the 2 alpha males who were very blatant in perusing the main character.  These ladies know their craft and do it very well.  Any small glimpse in to their writing and you will be sold and asking “what do I read first?”

Since I am a newbie to Sierra and Mari that is what I am saying, What next?  Sierra’s story was so AMAZING!!  I loved Cole and was like “WAIT ITS OVER”…NOOOOO !!  Mari’s novella I reacted the very same way…With a shake of my head and a quick look through the library to add another story of hers to read!!!

You can’t go wrong with the series of stories and if you haven’t loved these ladies before I can promise you will after reading the anthology.

Angel Payne

USA Today bestselling romance author Angel Payne has been reading and writing her entire life, though her love for romances began in junior high, when writing with friends on “swap stories” they’d trade between classes. Needless to say, those stories involved lots of angst, groping, drama, and gooey kissing.

She began getting a paycheck for her writing in her twenties, writing record reviews for a Beverly Hills-based dance music magazine. Some years, various entertainment industry gigs, and a number of years in the hospitality industry later, Angel returned to the thing she loves the most: creating character-based romantic fiction. Along the way, she also graduated with two degrees from Chapman University in Southern California, taking departmental honors for English, before writing five historical romances for Kensington and Bantam/Doubleday/Dell.

Angel found a true home in writing contemporary-based romances that feature high heat and high concepts, focusing on memorable alpha men and the women who tame them. She has numerous book series to her credit, including the Kinky Truth series, the Secrets of Stone series (with Victoria Blue), the W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, and the acclaimedCimarron series. Temptation Court, a new series being launched through the Dark Nights Discovery project, debuts in 2016.

Angel still lives in Southern California, where she is married to her soul mate and lives on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with their awesome daughter and Lady Claire, the dog with impeccable manners. When not writing, she enjoys reading, pop culture, alt rock, cute shoes, enjoying the outdoors, and being a gym rat.
