#WOTR18 #AuthorSpotlight – Attending Author Kelly Moran @authorkmoran

Kelly Moran

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I’m Kelly Moran, and I write contemporary and paranormal romance. I’m a chocoholic and coffee junkie who resides in Wisconsin with my hubby and 3 sons. I speak sarcasm fluently.

When and Why did you start to write?

I started making up stories in kindergarten and never really stopped. I write because I think I have to in order to stay sane.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Nora Roberts, Carla Neggers, and Heather Graham are my go-to authors. I highly suggest trying Mackenzie Crowne, AJ Nuest, and Vonnie Davis if you haven’t yet.

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

Once I let the characters take over and write the stories, my process started going a lot smoother.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a paranormal witch trilogy called “Fated” and more books in my rom-com series “Redwood Ridge.”

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I start a book being a pantser, but almost always wind up plotting to keep the tone even.

#WOTR – #Review – Rust (King’s Harlots MC #6) by JM Walker


“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

His demons are loud.
Held captive within his mind, he does everything he can to forget his life before Vice-One.
As one of the newest recruits, his main goal is to have his “brothers” trust him and he’ll do just about anything to make that happen. Until one passionate night with Creena Chan, the military was all he had.

She’s hiding from her past.
A trained professional, she keeps that part of her life to herself. The darkness weighs heavily on her chest, mixing with the beats of her heart, caused by the one man she tries to ignore. Vincent Stone is nothing like she imagined. Months of flirting lead to an explosion she never saw coming.

Only when Creena and Stone’s limits are tested, do they realize exactly what they will do to find that peace their family and friends deserve.




“Love and pain. It was a toxic combination.” I am going to miss the King’s Harlots! This is not my normal genre but it is an epic mix of awesomeness! The series has gone from really good to oh my gawd amazing! Every book seems to get better and better. It has been a non-stop love/hate relationship that most definitely keeps you wanting more. Rust is no different. Although, I must say that Creena’s and Stone’s stories may be my favorite  . One thing that this series has given us is the raw and gritty. Well folks, it absolutely raw and gritty in the best possible way. I want to talk about the story but I know I will give away spoilers so that’s gonna be a no-no this time. They are both holding secrets, like major secrets that are gonna shake the Harlot’s and Vice One’s worlds. The back story of these two is intense. When Creena and Stone crash together things explode! It’s HAWT!!! It’s ACTION packed! It’s TWISTED!! It’s OVER!! (wipes tears from face).

In an effort to not spoil the story I will give you a couple lines that were my fave!

Sex with Stone came at a price. It cost me my sanity because all I could think about was him. My thirst for him was never quenched. It only made it worse. I could drink him up, feast on his body, and never be satisfied.

We crave that darkness but even after accepting its fate, it can still haunt us for years. Maybe even the rest of our lives. Sometimes people take advantage of that. Hire us to do their dirty work because they’re scared to do it themselves.

This is an incredible series with an equally incredible ending. Bravo, JM Walker! Get it girl!





J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#WOTR18 #Review #Paranormal #Fae – Beyond the Veil of Whispered Dreams (The Veil Book #1) by Jolanthe Aleksander




Things are not always simple or what they seem.
Daria McClaren is content. She has her dance school, her cousin Celine and the man of her dreams. Literally.

Iauron is uneasy. As the High King of the Fae, his chosen Queen Verisiel is calling to him, but he cannot find her. The court insists that she has crossed over. He is not so sure that is the case. He has searched every realm looking. Every realm, but the human one.

The race is on. Beyond the veil lie truths waiting to be revealed. Which one will have the courage to look? Will they be in time?




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

I really liked the premise of this book.  The Fae King Iauron is looking for his Queen, Versisiel, who is hiding in the Human world.  He has been looking for CENTURIES and just recently found the thread to their bond.  He is stunned she goes to hide there vs any other place.

Daria is a regular girl who is having weird dreams nightly about someone saying they will find her.  When her friend asks her to come work with her for the summer she meets “Ian” AKA Iauron.  He is meeting her in the human word to help her remember who she really is and take her home.  Getting her to fall back in love is also on the agenda!!!

Dramorion, The Prince and Aislinn all have different reasons for NOT wanting the queen to be found.  He wants the throne for himself and she is the pawn he is using for the power. She thinks she will be ruling with the king when the queen is never found.  Poor Poor Aislinn gets taught a valuable lesson, don’t trust anyone and don’t go against your king.

Ian and Daria do fall in love along with have some more surprises happen for them.  The king learned of the betrayal and starts to make a plan to get his queen home safe and also help her remember everything.

Like I said before, I did like this story but I felt it was a little bit slow in parts and the end of the story seemed a bit too rushed.  I will continue to read because I am curious about Daria/Verisiel.


Jolanthe Aleksander

Jolanthe is a Marine Corps Brat and proud of it. The nomadic life of the military helped develop her love of reading and books became her friend.

A dancer, Jolanthe appeared in several productions in high school and later in the area theatres. She gave up her role of dancer/actress for her greatest role to date, that of Mother to a son who reminds her every day to find joy in the simplest of things and to use her imagination.

Missing the stage, and at the prompting of some on-line friends, Jolanthe gave rp-ing with an internet group a try. There she found and developed her skill as a writer.
When not working, writing, or keeping up with her son, Jolanthe can be found scouring antique shops, used bookstores, and of course, reading.

#NewRelease #Review – Paradise Found by Sarah O’Rourke

Paradise Found

Samantha “The Body” Dixon had once been a famous runway model who’d walked every catwalk from Paris to Milan and back again, but when her career abruptly comes to a screeching halt, she’s out to prove she’s got a whole lot more to offer than just a pretty face and killer rack.
Benjamin Atkins might have once been the most in demand photographer in the fashion industry, but times have changed and he’d learned the hard way to value substance over style. Now, he’s built a new life doing what he loves in the beautiful town of Paradise, TN.
When these two ex-lovers reconnect after a bitter break-up, can their broken hearts find a way back to their own personal paradise found?



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

AHHH These ladies!!  I love their books.  Reading their stories, its so easy to just open and read the whole story in one sitting!  I also love how each of the stories we get to see old characters from their other books.  We keep getting glimpses of everyone we have read about so it’s a constant updating of our couples!

Ben and Sami had the love of a life time.  They were so happy and are ready to begin their life together.  They are planning the wedding and then family for their future.  When Sami breaks things off with Ben he is lost and upset.  Fast forward 3 years and both are still miserable and lonely.  Ben is still blind sided by Sami’s betrayal.  Sami is still miserable for sacrificing Ben’s heart to give him his HEA with someone else.

The couple are thrown together with the help of 2 traitorous friends who know why Sami did what she did for Ben.  This causes Ben to take matters into his hands to make his Vixen remember he is hers and she is his.  DREAMY SIGH Ben is super alpha and super sweet.

I loved how patient ….ok kidnapping her was a bit much but still he was patient with her but at times I wanted to throttle Sami because she wouldn’t take the gift of a 2nd chance with Ben and run with it.  When Ben forced her to open her eyes and listen to her heart the story was amazing……

Passion in Paradise order (all books are standalone and can be read in any order you want!)
Cain’s Salvation (Faith & Cain)
Hard as Stone (Harmony & Jake)
Ready, Willing and Abel (Patience & Abel)
The Homespun Holiday (Millie & Mack)

#Review – PowerChain, Power House Book #1 by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

PowerHouse (Power Chain Book 1)

No one denies me. Especially her.

She dismissed me.
That was her first mistake.
She thought I was a nice guy.
That was her second.
She had hope.
That was the final straw.
I am Onyx Blake.
I’m a powerhouse in an ugly underworld only found in her nightmares.
She’s going to learn quickly, I’m not the man to let anything go …
Including her.

Authors Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele team up to push beyond the boundaries, crossing a line into a deep, dangerous, and forbidden world. One where no one escapes, even if they beg to.

This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.
Series reading order:
Power Chain
Power Player


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

Talk about a powerhouse team that is Ryan and Chelsea. I was blown away with this one. The plot twists were some of the best I have seen in a while.  I never saw any of them coming and just WOW great job ladies.

What is a girl to do when day goes from bad to the unthinkable?  Torryn thought losing her job was the worst thing that was going to happen to her that day until she barges into her sister’s home and finds things just got a whole lot worse. Torryn learns real fast what happens when you dismiss Onyx Blake.

Onyx is the boss who has three others at his side. They are fierce and unforgiving. They may push each other but together they are a chain that no one can break. Onyx stakes his claim to Torryn after her mistake of dismissing him. Torryn is not one to back down and will stand her ground. Only down side is that Onyx is boss and what he says goes no matter what. Torryn has a few things to learn one of which is Onyx is in charge at all times, all must listen and listen closely to him or there are consequences.

The push and pull between Onyx and Torryn is something else. The heat between these two is like an inferno. I absolutely loathed Onyx for who he was and the way he treated Torryn but by the end I my heart softened toward him. Torryn’s spunk, stubbornness and defiance won me over. I also enjoyed Dane, Pax and Garrett and cannot wait to hear their stories.  I usually am drawn to the quiet brooding guys but Pax tugs at my heart. Then ending Oh Baby I cannot wait for the next one. This book was dive in and never look up I mean really who needs food and potty breaks.


USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.


Ryan Michele found her passion in bringing fictional characters to life. She loves being in an imaginative world where anything is possible, and she has a knack for special twists readers don’t see coming.

She writes MC, Contemporary, Erotic, Paranormal, New Adult, Inspirational, and other romance-based genres. Whether it’s bikers, wolf-shifters, mafia, etc., Ryan spends her time making sure her heroes are strong and her heroines match them at every turn.

When she isn’t writing, Ryan is a mom and wife living in rural Illinois and reading by her pond in the warm sun.

#WOTR18 #Historical #Regency – Earl of Sunderland (Wicked Earls’ Club #4) by Aubrey Wynne

Earl of Sunderland (Wicked Earls' Club, #4)

Christopher Roker, the Earl of Sunderland, has been surrounded by title-hunting chits all of his life. It is a point of pride to be the oldest member of the Wicked Earls’ Club. But if he has to beget an heir, perhaps he could find a simple country chit to keep tucked away…

Grace Beaumont has seen what love can do to a woman. Her mother died, producing a coveted son late in life. A devastated father and newborn brother forces Grace to take on the role of Lady Beaumont and all of its responsibilities. But Grace finds she enjoys the freedom and power of her new status—minus the husband.

Kit travels to northern England with a friend, who has inherited some property. When the neighboring beauty arrives with her tales of murder and hauntings, he’s intrigued. As they search the castle for its secrets, the earl realizes Grace is much more captivating than the legend.


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

I am a historical LOVER!!  I love the Ton.  I love Regency.  I love the corsets.  I love the rules.  I love the gossip.  I love the sneaking away to steal a moment with your loved one.  I. Just. Love. It!!

So this book didn’t disappoint me.  I opened it and devoured it in no time.  I was so drawn to the characters and their situations that placed the two of them together.  I loved how open minded Kit was about a woman.  He was raised by a strong woman and so he in turn wants a strong wife.

Grace has been the Lady of her family’s lands since her mother died at the young age of 15.  She became the woman of the house raising her brother, taking care of the ground, the staff and her father.  She wants to live her life her way and isn’t looking for a husband.  They will pin her down and she loves her independence.

Grace and Kit meet when her cousin/bestie marries Kit’s twin brother.  They hit it off but time was not right for them.  He had to return to the military to fight Napoleon while she must continue to raise her brother.

When they meet back up the sparks pick up right where they were at the wedding.  Neither are looking for an HEA.  They just want to pass the time over the summer with a friendly face and some silly flirting.  Little do they know, the silly fun turns serious very quickly.  Then both are worried about how the other will react to the news the other is in love with them.

I loved the scene when Kit comes to see her at her family home and we learn of all that he has planned and all he declares to our girl.  I also love the side characters in the story.  They are all there and offer the right guidance to the characters when they need it.  I would love to see Grace’s dad marry again along with Eliza!

by Maggie Adams –  HERE

#WOTR18 #Review #Novella #Erotica – On a Whim by JM Walker


I’m in hiding.

As a bestselling BDSM author, I know all too well the danger of letting people get too close.

I’ve spent my entire life keeping people at arm’s length, until her. Kiki Smith is simply supposed to be my new cover designer, but before I know it, she starts breaking down the walls I’ve worked so hard to erect.

She’s unlike any woman I’ve ever met and before I’m even aware of what’s happening, she consumes me from the inside out.

There’s just one problem… I have a secret, and I’m afraid that once she finds out what I’m hiding, my barriers will once again slam back into place.



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

Hot little read from one of my favorite erotica authors.  JM can do a “quickie” very well.  *snickers* She gets you hot and bothered plus actually deliver a fun story to go along.

Kiki is a mother and book cover designer.  She is lonely and thanks to her bestie, Chaz, she is going to put herself out there again after her ex fiancée left her at the altar.

Bo is a model but also a romance author hiding from Kiki.  He is enthralled by her good girl persona and wants to see if she is the real deal before telling her his real identity.

The couple have a hot and steamy romance with lots of naughty fun to read…I mean come on it’s a JM book so OF COURSE the naughty fun is in abundance!!

The flirting was funny and sweet in the beginning but soon emotions (and fluid are swapped…LOL) but what will Kiki do when she learns of Bo’s deceit????  How will it all go down and what the heck was Parker Reed doing making a nice little cameo???

J.M. Walker is an Amazon bestselling author who loves all things books, pigs and lip gloss. She is happily married to the man who inspires all of her Heroes and continues to make her weak in the knees every single day.

#Review – Taken By Rebecca Brooke

Title: Taken
Series: Traded Series (Stand alone)
Author: Rebecca Brooke
Genre:  Contemporary/Suspense Romance

Release Date: February 22, 2018

Kill her or don’t kill her
One job. I had one damn job: Eliminate Marcello, leave no witnesses.

I should kill her, but I can’t. Except letting her live may cost me my life.

Only one choice left. Lock her in my basement until I figure out what to do. I’ve never questioned myself before.

Until her.

She’s been Taken

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

I enjoyed House Rules and Traded but I think I liked taken even better. I have been waiting for Brock because I have a soft spot for the quite brooding ones.

Brock had one job go in take care of it and leave no loose ends. One problem he didn’t count on was her. He now has a choice to make be loyal to his family and take care of loose ends or protect her and lose everything even his life.

Isobel is known for her evil ways. However, she is a survivor and a strong willed woman. She will not back down to anyone. Isobel is one you hate then you find out why she is the way she is.

The back story on both Brock and Isobel are rough ones. The chemistry these two have is explosive. Watching Isobel and Brock show a different side was amazing to see Brock go from brooding and almost cold hearted to sweet and caring then to see Isobel’s strong willed spirt and fierceness come to the surface to take back her life and what is hers was amazing.

This was action packed and fast paced that had me sucked in needing to find out what was going to happen next. What I enjoyed was the twist I never saw coming had me on the edge. I truly cannot get enough of these men.


Rebecca Brooke grew up in the shore towns of South Jersey. Writing has always been a love for her, as well as reading. She loves to hit the beach, but always with her kindle on hand. She is married to the most wonderful man, who puts up with all of her craziness. Together they have two beautiful children who keep her on her toes. Rebecca is the author of contemporary, new adult, and paranormal romance.


#Review #MC #TwinsieForTheDay -Ryker (Hell’s Renegades #1) by Dawn Robertson

Ryker (Hell's Renegades, #1)

Our lives aren’t beautiful or glamorous.They’re dirty and fucked up.
We live the nightmares people live in fear of.
We live on the edge of the law wondering when it will finally catch up with us or who will bury us before that happens.
But its the outlaw life we chose. It was a choice we all made, and I wouldn’t fuckin’ take it back. Not ever.
Until she walked into my life and made me second guess everything, I have ever known.
She is an angel, and I am tainted in darkness.
She is pure perfection, and I am stained and bloodied.
I want her, but I know I will never have her.

I just hope that I can come to terms with the fact that she belongs to someone else, and there is nothing I can ever do about it.

My name is Ryker, and this is my story.


Review by Jordan

I received this book for an honest review.

I’ve been waiting for this story for ages it seems, and I wasn’t disappointed! Ryker is the bad boy every girl lusts after but is unattainable because he doesn’t want to settle down. Lyric is a good girl experiencing life for what feels like the first time. The two are opposites that can’t seem to distract themselves from wanting the other. An agreement for one night no strings what should have gotten the other out of their systems turns into an insatiable hunger. This explosive relationship is bound to be one for the books with their undeniable need for one another. I love the explosive nature that these two have when together.

Three times best selling author Dawn Robertson was born and raised in Connecticut before relocating to Florida in 2013. The same year first novel, Hers debuted as an Amazon Best Seller. Replicating that success with two additional novels in the following years.

The Indie publishing world has grown to love her raw writing style depicting strong
women in real life situations, topping the charts in erotica, romance, and romance-suspense. Robertson has even insinuated that the female characters in her book mirror her real life. But, that I’ll leave to speculation.

When Dawn Robertson is not writing she is a full-time Real Estate professional in Florida, and mother of three amazing children.
