#CoverReveal – BREAK THE DAY by Lara Adrian

Lara Adrian’s New York Times and #1 international bestselling Midnight Breed vampire romance series continues with Break the Day, an adrenaline-laced, passionate new novel of paranormal adventure.

After a shocking betrayal nearly killed him and the people he cares about the most, what Breed warrior Rafe wants more than anything is revenge against the insidious brotherhood called Opus Nostrum. But to achieve that goal, he must turn his back on the Order and infiltrate a dangerous gang with ties to Opus. Risking everything to redeem himself and carry out his deep-cover mission, Rafe will let nothing stand in his way–least of all his desire for one of the loyalists he should despise, a mysterious, dark-haired beauty named Devony Winters.

But Devony has secrets of her own to protect, as well as a personal duty she will do anything to fulfill. And as a daywalker passing herself off as human to the gang she’s been embedded with for months, the last thing she needs is a dangerous former member of the Order unraveling all her hard work. Her plans depend on keeping Rafe at arm’s length, but if she surrenders to the dark need he stirs within her, it will be her heart that pays the ultimate price.

Finding Faith by Beverly Ovalle

A Dragon’s Fated Heart Book 2
On Sale Now for 99 cents until May 31st

The apocalypse had been and gone. Those left banded together for survival, creating safety from the chaos. They succeeded. Faith wanted more, she wanted to live, to love, fly free. More than survival, Faith craved adventure. Leaving home, seeking a new life, all that ceased when she witnessed her sister being abducted-by dragons, creatures shrouded in myth. Determined to rescue her, Faith begins an adventure she never wants to end. Dragon shifter Crag follows his heart, hunting for his fated mate. Once he finds her, Crag is determined to keep her safe, from all threats. Admitting he is a dragon shifter and involved in her sister’s kidnapping may be the end of them. Until the interference of a race of dragons desperate for survival grasps their only chance, stealing Faith and drawing Crag along to save her.

Crag leaned over, snagging a little piece of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he lifted it to his nose, the scent assaulting his nostrils. Inhaling, the spiciness pervaded his lungs, curling inside of him, clenching his gut. Snapping his eyes open, Crag breathed in the scent in again, savoring it. His dick twitched. Lowering his hand, he gazed at the delicate panties. The scent assuring him they belonged to his mate. Lifting them again to his nose, he took another deep sniff, enjoying the spicy bouquet and imprinting the scent of his mate forever onto his soul. He turned at the gasp behind him. Hope, his brother’s mate looked at him in disgust. “Is that necessary?” His lips twitched. “Her scent is strongest in what she wore closest to her body.” He raised his brow, daring her to argue with him. “Hmpf.” Hope shook her head and gestured for him to leave the room. “Just find my sister.” Crag shoved the pink panties in his pocket. He didn’t need them, but he wanted them. Pleased with having something of his mate’s, he quirked a grin at Hope. Patting Hope on the head he turned and left. The growl from her was just a bit of icing on the cake. Crag shook his head passing Hope’s grandmother. The twitch of his lips the only sign of his amusement.

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back. Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF. An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them. A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life, meeting and marrying her husband of twenty five years along the way for her own romance. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

#NewRelease #Review – Smitten by the Brit (Sometimes in Love #2) by Melonie Johnson

Smitten by the Brit (Sometimes in Love, #2)

DEFINITELY, MAYBE…OR LOVE, ACTUALLY? 

English professor Bonnie Blythe expects her life to play out like her favorite novels, especially now that her long-term boyfriend has finally proposed. So when a shocking discovery leads Bonnie to end her engagement, she decides to close the book on love. But the plot thickens when a brand-new character enters the scene—and quickens Bonnie’s heart.

With his brilliant blue eyes, sexy accent, and irresistible charm, Theo Wharton is like a romantic hero straight out of a Jane Austen novel. When fate places Bonnie in England for a summer—conveniently close to Theo—she realizes a hot friends-with-benefits fling is exactly what she needs to start a fresh chapter. Just as Bonnie begins to believe she’s falling in love, an eye-opening revelation into Theo’s life makes Bonnie feel like she’s wandered into one of her favorite books. Will Bonnie have the courage to risk her heart and turn the page with the dashing Brit to find her true happy ending after all?

Goodreads

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

OH THEO!!!  YES!!  I was so ready for you after the first book!!  He is totally my Mr. Darcy with his manners and polite charm….sigh right ladies!!!

Bonnie was a great character who has been through some hard times.  When your DB fiancée won’t marry you and cheats on you instead…yeah broken hearted was Bonnie.  She won’t let it stop her.  We see her and Theo giving eyes and flirting like crazy in book 1.  I was so excited to see them as the next book because I need these people to get together already!!  Theo also has his own issues because he needs to marry a certain kind of woman to please the family.  Being a Duke does have its perks and downfalls!!

This book was amazing!!  I enjoyed the first book and getting to know all the characters but this book because we KNEW everything it seemed to flow smoother.  Theo and Bonnie are such a great couple and I will definitely see myself rereading because their story was full of humor and sweetness.

Today, they live happily ever after in the magical land midway between Chicago and Milwaukee with their two redhead daughters, a dog that’s more like a small horse, and a pair of hermit crabs.

Wyatt by Miranda Lynn

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

GAH!!!  Wyatt has totally been someone I was lookin’ forward to reading since we were introduced to him.  I mean HELLO DRAGON SHIFTER!!!  Yes please!!!

The one thing I want anyone to know about this book is the FEELINGS you will get while reading.  Wyatt is so afraid to HOPE for a mate.  He is beyond numb to the Goddess giving him a mate since he is the LAST Pure Blood Dragon shifter in the world.  He has just thrown himself into helping his friends and packs.  He is over wanting and wishing and just realized he will be alone until his dragon loses his mind, at which point, he will be “put down”.   You can FEEL his loneliness in the story. 

When the Goddess grants Wyatt his mate you can actually feel his anger and frustration at this gift of a mate.  He is so scared because any mate of his will be a target.  You can feel his fear and watch him push away this precious gift!!

Natalie, friends, she is AWESOME!!  I mean she is sweet but strong.  She is kind but fierce.  She will NOT be just a wallflower anymore to her friends.  She is starting to realize after being told she is fated to mate a dragon; she needs to be strong and confident.  A dragon needs a strong mate not a weak woman.

Again, friends….the anxiety of these two was so heavy!!  GAH the push and pull and the almost kisses were driving me CRAZY!! I was like JUST FREAKING KISS AND CLAIM HER WYATT!!!!!!

I can’t say enough about the story because it was probably my favorite story so far in the series and that is saying a lot because I am pretty sure Mack, my baby daddy, is not going to like hearing this news!!!

Seriously, if you enjoy angst, heart, more angst and just all out amazing chemistry, THIS IS A GREAT story for you.  Its also a great introduction to the amazing world Miranda has built with the Black Mountain Pack.

Side note: If Stephen doesn’t get a book next, I will cry.  His character was so much fun to read!!!



 


Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

#WOTR19 #Erotica #Novella – Wild (Quick & Dirty Series #3) by Kate Roth

43680362

She’s housesitting at her aunt and uncle’s mini mansion. He’s the rich, brooding silverfox next door. She tempts him, he intrigues her and they both desperately want something wild.

*Each book in the Quick & Dirty series is a novella. They are all stand-alone, insta-loving, panty-melting, swoon-worthy stories to satisfy your craving for something quick and dirty*

Goodreads

Amazon

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

I don’t know what it is about you and your love for Silver Foxes, but DAMN Gavin has been my favorite so far.  This book is a little bit different then the other books.  Maybe it’s because Gavin stole my heart? Maybe its because he is an older man rediscovering life?  Who the hell knows but still…guuurl you write some nasty stuff and this is why I love you!!

This book is a quick and dirty novella about those May-December romances that everyone thinks wont last and yet Gavin and Lydia have so much chemistry.  They both aren’t looking for love or commitment so to literally crash into each other at the time they did, proves love knows best.

Gavin is a man who is happy to drink a beer on the patio with his dog.  Lydia is a wild child who will be jet setting with her band when they meet.  The chemistry and changes the both undergo in the novella are delicious reads.

I loved this one and am so excited for the next installment of the dirty neighbor’s series.

Published since 2012, Kate Roth is addicted to all things romance. Her passion for love stories, both traditional and unconventional, has led her to write in various sub-genres of romance. She is inspired by everything from music to the real-life romance tales she’s heard through her years as a professional hair stylist.

Avelyn Paige

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Avelyn Paige. I am a cancer research scientist by day, and an author by night.

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

My favorite place to write is wherever I can find a few second. I have written on my phone during church when a thought hit so no place is safe from writing time. I’m not really a snacker when I write, but there’s always a can of coke nearby.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

The people. I am a social butterfly naturally, but getting to be in a place with so many like-minded individuals is absolutely inspiring and so, so much fun. The event itself always goes by way too fast.

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

Oh lord have mercy. There’s way too many. Some that would even require a time machine because they aren’t with us anymore. If I had to pick a current favorite, I’d love to pick the brain of Darynda Jones.

What author would you love to write with?

I’d honestly love to write a PNR with Darynda or Chloe Neill.

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Again… so many memories. I think my favorite would have to be the first time someone recognized outside of a signing. My husband and I were at our local casino for a night out, and a reader spotted me there. It was such a fun experience, and to meet a reader so close to home was amazing.

Hope Daniels, I’m half of the writing team to the Magical Forces Series books.

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

My favorite place to write is actually outside. Unfortunately, the sun makes it difficult to stay out there long and write. So, my second favorite place to write is in my bedroom with my feet up and music playing.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting the readers and introducing them to my books. My characters take on a life of their own and I tend to get animated when I talk about them. 🙂
I love the interaction between authors and getting to meet the authors that I read and review. The energy is undeniable. If you weren’t pumped before you arrived, you will be before you leave.

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

Nora Roberts, Larissa Ione, Lorelei James (Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one)

What author would you love to write with?

Dianna Love, Larissa Ione

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

Holding my first paperback in my hands is one. The one which made me tear up is when we were at an event and a fan came to our table and said they read our book and loved it. Now they needed it in paperback.

#NewRelease #Paranormal – Air Born (The Guardian #3) by Rayanne Haines

Air Born (The Guardians Series,  #3)

Quinn Taleisin hates secrets, and shadows, and subterfuge. Which is why she still can’t believe she agreed to become a member of the Guardians, an elite force of immortals tasked with keeping the balance between good and evil in the world.

Sounds great, except, to be a guardian you must agree to live in secrecy. Quinn is a wind elemental. Being caged in by secrecy is worse than death for someone like her. She can’t imagine a worse fate—until she’s asked to work with Lachon Findel, the man she holds responsible for her mother’s death and her father’s insanity.

Lachon is the oldest living elemental in the world. Known as Lachon the Law, he’s an earth element; a man who sees the world in black and white, right and wrong. So maybe once, briefly, a hundred years ago she thought he was a good guy. She knew better now. No way would she fall for his savior of the world shtick.

When the dangers of the past catch up with them, Quinn realizes the only way either of them will make it out alive is if she can put the ghosts of the past behind her and finally trust the flesh and blood man in front of her.
