Lara has always relished being a thorn in Mason’s paw. When she was chosen as pride Enforcer, it was easier than ever to get under the passionate shifter’s skin. But with the scent of humans in the air comes a threat she’s powerless to battle alone.

It’s time Lara unites with the one man she needs, the one man she’s secretly drawn to…as if by fate.

If there’s one thing Mason hates more than relinquishing control to a female, it’s the attraction he feels for the fiery lioness. Joining forces with Lara against an insidious enemy only makes their primal bond hotter—and the two of them stronger.

Now it’s up to them, side by side, to bring together three warring shifter clans, win the final fight and save Deep Creek.

Claiming His Lioness Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 Kerry Adrienne

One, two, three, four…

A deep breath, and the world didn’t seem quite as red. Another breath. Don’t let him get to you.

“Women have roles and men have roles.” Mason cleared his throat then narrowed his eyes. “Not better or worse. Different.”

“This isn’t the Middle Ages.” Her voice was calm. Soft but firm.

“I know. Women have babies. Men fight.”

“Wow, seriously? Women have babies and fight. You saw how much help the lionesses were at the cave. We’d have lost a lot more lions if we hadn’t been there…to fight. We weren’t there to nurse cubs.” He was getting to her. She kicked at the leaves on the ground.

Only an hour or so till dark. The faint strains of sunset were already slanting through the trees, painting an orange glow to the surroundings, and the forest sounds were shifting to nocturnal melodies.

“You helped a lot and I appreciate that. My point is, why not let the men take care of you now? We aren’t in desperate need of your help like we were at the cave, so why not let us protect you?”

He really didn’t get it. Lara started to speak but paused. What could she say to make him understand? Did he really think women had roles that were so defined, they couldn’t do other things too? Or did he feel that it was his role to make sure women were safe and secure?

Regardless, it was obnoxious. And a prime example of how tall, dark and dangerous wasn’t enough.

“It’s noble of you to want to protect the women.” She chewed the inside of her cheek, trying to maintain her calm and phrase things in a nonconfrontational way. No point in having him dismiss her thoughts because he felt intimidated. “But you don’t need to protect us unless we ask you to. We can protect ourselves. You should accept the help or you’re going to have a lot of pissed-off lionesses. Trust me, you don’t want that.”

Mason looked deeper into the forest, his shoulders bunched with tension. His back, broad and sloping to a muscular ass, filled his black T-shirt perfectly. Wrestling with him wasn’t so bad, was it? In other circumstances, it could be a lot of fun.

She might even win.

She fought the urge to run her hand over his shoulders to comfort him and satisfy her craving. Yank his T-shirt off and press herself against those muscles. They were definitely hard. She’d felt them when he lay across her on the ground.

No. She shook her head.

Mason was off-limits.

#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease – Unseen Heart (Part One) by Elena M. Reyes

Unseen Heart (Part One)

Love sucks.

It’s an emotion that can cripple you—make you weak—something that pisses me the hell off each time I see the object of my desires.

It was never my intention to fall in love, but I did, and most of all with her.

She takes over my every waking moment and dominates my free will.

A woman whose world revolves around a man that will never see her as more than his best friend.

We are reliving the same story, yet this time, with a different protagonist.

You meet and fall into lust.

Play that dangerous game of cat and mouse that make the spoils of victory worth it. You chase and she, the coquettish viper, enthralls you with her every smile. With the sway of her enticing hips while she stupidly follows the impossible: he will never be hers.

I hate her.

I love her.

Fuck you, Ashley.

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

Fuck you Ashley…I mean that alone should make you be like DAMN what’s up with that drama? IamIright????

Now I will say, I have not read I Saw You and I would recommend you do read it so you have a better understand of why in the hell Tex hates Ashley….LOL But honestly after reading the story you get it..you know why he hates Ashley…I mean I am not saying she didn’t deserve to be hated but she prolly did!!  Look she is a straight up beeotch and uber selfish. I don’t care. I don’t like her…Come give me a cuddle Tex 😉

Ok so the review before you all think I am outta my mind which I kinda am but anyway………….

First up CLIFFHANGER so you have been warned. I don’t want to see any people complaining they did know because YO it’s in shouty caps for you!!  Now I loves me a cliffhanger, but a lot of people don’t like it and I get that but DANG this one is crazy as a MO!!!  SO if you are a cliffy hater then you might wanna wait til the final book releases!!

Tex and Ashley …man they need some Dr. Phil in their life.  They are all about game playing and messing with each other because they hate each other so much but is it really hate or it is love…ya know that thin line and all that jazz.

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 by 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 characters grow.

 

#NewRelease – GOOD LUCK CHARM by Helena Hunting

The Good Luck Charm

Is it love, or is she just his good luck charm? New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Helena Hunting absolutely delights with this witty and fun standalone contemporary romance.

Lilah isn’t sure what hurt worse: the day Ethan left her to focus on his hockey career, or the day he came back eight years later. He might think they can pick up just where they left off, but she’s no longer that same girl and never wants to be again.

Ethan Kane wants his glory days back. And that includes having Lilah by his side. With her, he was magic. They were magic. All he has to do is make her see that.

Just when Lilah might finally be ready to let him in, though, she finds out their reunion has nothing to do with her and everything to do with his game. But Ethan’s already lost her once, and even if it costs him his career, he’ll do anything to keep from losing her again.

#WOTR18 #Historical – Wicked Rogue of Mine Multi Authored Historical Romance Boxset

Wicked Rogue of Mine

Multi Authored Historical Romance Boxset

Release date: August 14, 2018

Seven swoon worthy historical romances in one must read collection:

Lord of Pirates by Scarlett Scott

When a dangerous-looking stranger raps on Lizzie Winstead’s door one stormy night, the peace of her humdrum life is shattered. She’s shocked to discover her visitor is Captain Edmond Grey, one of the most feared pirates of the realm and her lost love. Edmond is a wanted man throughout the Colonies, but despite his formidable reputation, he desperately needs help to nurse his wounded brother back to health. Only Lizzie can be trusted not to turn Edmond over to authorities for the price on his head. Is the love they once shared strong enough to reunite them forever and conquer the demons of Edmond’s past?

Scandalous Endeavors by Amanda Mariel

Sparks fly as the Duke of Goldstone and Lady Amelia find themselves at odds with each other and drawn to each other at the same time. Can they find a way to stop arguing long enough to explore their growing passion?

Grace Captures the Captain by Gemma Blackwood

The last thing Grace Rivers expects when she is sent to the country in disgrace is to receive a proposal from a handsome young army officer she hasn’t seen in years. Captain Charles Everly’s motive is far from romantic – his object is her inheritance: the beautiful country house that was his childhood home. As unexpected feelings develop between them, Grace’s past and Charlie’s rash actions throw everything they hold dear into peril. They must each decide which they value more: their childhood dreams, their damaged reputations, or their newfound love.

Searching for my Rogue by Dawn Brower

Alys Dewitt has always dreamed of finding her very own happily-ever-after, but she never would have envisioned the path she’d have to fall down to find him. James Kendall, the Duke of Weston returns from war to find an injured woman on his estate. She mumbles strange phrases and keeps calling him by another name. Thinking her a bit mad from her wounds, he takes her to the manor and calls for a doctor. As days goes by they are drawn to each other. If they’re brave enough they’ll discover a love that defies time.

Unmasking a Duke by Ellie St. Clair

When the life of his brother, the Duke of Elenford, is threatened, Lord Andrew Stephens must determine which of his enemies intends him harm. When Andrew takes the Duke’s place at a masquerade ball, he meets a woman who takes his breath away and haunts his dreams. Arabella Marley’s father gambled away their family’s most precious heirloom and is determined she will gain it back for him, no matter the cost. He presents her to the man believed to be the Duke at a masquerade ball, and she is shocked to find him both handsome and agreeable. She must guard herself against his charms to find her family inheritance and keep her heart intact. Can Andrew and Arabella fight the love that grows between them, or will the truth be too much to overcome?

My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen

Fleeing London, and scandal, Lady Clarissa Burton runs directly into the wife-hunting Earl of Dumfries while travelling on a rutted Scottish road. She wanted peace in Scotland, not a tall and brooding laird who makes her forget that handsome lords are nothing but trouble.

A Most Inconvenient Love by Jillian Eaton

Rough and common, Aiden Donovan is the exact opposite of Evie’s boring-as-lint fiance. But from the first moment they bump into one another on a crowded street, she finds herself utterly captivated by his dark roguish charm. As the day to her wedding draws closer, will Evie listen to her head? Or for the first time in her life will she risk everything to follow her heart?

First paragraph excerpt from each novella:

Lord of Pirates by Scarlett Scott

Edmond Grey knew he damn well didn’t want to be a baker. Apprenticed from the time he was but a lad, he’d grown weary of flour, of baking buns, of never leaving the tedious life of shopkeeper. He’d finally settled upon the path that would lead him far away.

Scandalous Endeavors by Amanda Mariel

Amelia stood as still as a hollowed out tree as drizzle coated her body in cool little beads. Dark clouds hung stationary overhead. Water spattered into a small, deep hole carved out of the rain-soaked ground. She surveyed the surrounding landscape speckled with memorial stones and decorated in wilted flowers. Why?

 Grace Captures the Captain by Gemma Blackwood

“Blast that scoundrel’s eyes!” cried Captain Charles Everly, rising to his feet. “I’ll call him out this instant!”

“Now, Charlie,” said his sister, affecting the most soothing tone she could manage. “That is uncalled-for, and you know it.”

Mrs Alison Henshaw, who was born Alison Everly, had only had a matter of hours to grow accustomed to the change in her brother. He had joined the army a big-hearted boy of twenty-one. This grown man who had returned from the war that morning was bearded, rash, and angry. He was no longer the sweet Charlie she thought she knew.

 Searching for my Rogue by Dawn Brower

“Aly, have you seen my shoes?”

Alys Dewitt rolled her eyes. “Did you check under the bed?” Her younger sister, Regina, was constantly losing something. They both sat in Regina’s chamber wearing their undergarments covered by a silk robe. If it wasn’t one thing, her sister would make something up so the attention would fall back to where she believed it belonged—on her.

 Unmasking a Duke by Ellie St. Clair

“I am not sure I agree with this,” Elias Stephens, the Duke of Elenford murmured with a frown. “The whole idea seems quite ridiculous.”

Lord Andrew Stephens, brother to the Duke, sighed in frustration as he attempted to convince his brother to do as he suggested. It had always been something of an impossible task, given that they were both as stubborn as mules. “Elenford, be reasonable. If there truly is someone attempting to harm you — perhaps even kill you,” he exclaimed, “then it is best you go into hiding for a time. We need to ascertain exactly where these threats are coming from.” And perhaps if you are gone for a time, without the ability to do further harm, they will stop entirely, he thought, though he didn’t voice his words aloud.

 My Enemy, My Earl by Tammy Andresen

Lord Ewan McDougal, Earl of Dumfries, took a deep breath of Scottish air as he trotted down the rutted road toward Kirkcaldy. It was so good to be back in his home country. Even with the misting rain, the fresh smell of spring flowers lifted his spirits. With any luck, he’d never step foot on soil that wasn’t Scottish again.

 A Most Inconvenient Love by Jillian Eaton
Genevieve knew she was beautiful. She knew it in the same way she knew it was raining outside and whenever Uncle Rigby came for dinner he would be half foxed and far too handsy for his own good. Her beauty was a fact, not an opinion. A fact she had been living with for her entire life.

#NewRelease – It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time by Kylie Scott

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #RH #DoubleReview – The Ties That Bind (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 4) by Mary Martel

The Ties That Bind (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 4) by [Martel, Mary]

The Ties That Bind is book 4 in the Ariel Kimber Series.
Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.
The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.
Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.
And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.

This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series.

The Ties that Bind, Ariel Kimble book 4 by Mary Martel

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

Man, this book…in a word….INTENSE!!   There is a lot that goes on this this book plus a hella-lotta of set up for the next few books.  You better buckle in friends because shit is about to get crazy!!

Before I begin, I gotta say I LOVED seeing Ariel spend time with Dash *Blushing* I dunno what it is about him but he is just *Sigh* so sweet.  I also loved Ariel starting to date the other guys she hasn’t bonded with.  We see the bonds she has with Her Salt & Pepper Twins, Uncle Panty Thief, Tyson, and even Dash but Her date with Damien…seriously put him on my radar!!!  Then her time with Julian even if it was brief…..Yeah I loved it!!

You guys so much happens in this book…like for real…so much.  Rain makes an appearance and I am still not sure if he is the wonderful Father Ariel is hoping for OR a Sociopath…like I am on the fence and you will be too when you read this book.  We see more of the Council, Chucky and even *GASP* Annabelle appears in this book. *Grumbles under my breath about that skank*.

But the biggest reveal comes when we find out about Ariel and her Biological Witch Family….WHOOOOOOO that is some heavy stuff!!!  But I think learning more and more about the Council gives me the chills because Ariel is gonna have some serious problems if they find out her true nature as are her seven coven boyfriends!

I cannot wait for more because this series is getting just so much better and more complex with each story!!

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

Oh Nellie this was jammed pack.  Ariel discovered her real father was out there.  Between her and her boys having to deal with the Council and dealing with the past this was an unforgettable read.

There is so much in this book I/m not sure my review will do it justice. The council is having Ariel do blood magic to find her father. This doesn’t make Quinton happy.  Not only this but the council brought back Chucky and Annabelle back into their lives and ugh that is all I’m going to say about that.  Then we do get to meet Rain, Ariel’s father, to be honest I am not sure what to think of him.

I loved to see Ariel and the guy’s relationship grow. Even though they all have trust issues after being hurt in their past we are learning more about each of them.  I like how we are learning about the guys along with Ariel.  Each of them has a different personality and Ariel reacts to them all differently.  I have to say my heart is opening more toward Damien.  Tyson made me sad when he asked Ariel to keep secrets from others.

This book kept my attention and was hard to set down. I am intrigued to see what will happen next.

A few of my favorites

The girl has a serious mouth that she had no problem popping off whenever the mood struck her (and it stuck her often enough), but being mouthy and unafraid to speak your mind were a whole lot different.

I don’t think you know how to just be. Be in the moment. Be happy. To just breathe and not have to be fighting for something or fighting off someone.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Instead of going right, I veered left into the depths of a world unknown.

 

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

I was a HUGE fan of Stay.  If you haven’t read it, you need to stop and read that story first.  You have to read it in order to understand what is going on in the series.

This book takes placed right after *sniff* Giano’s death.  I am still so sad about that yet Chelsea still says it had to happen….sigh…anyway, Angelina is a mess.  She is guilt and hurt and sad and lonely and just A MESS!!  She misses Giano with everything she is.  She has Uncle ZoZo there to help her pick up the pieces but its just not enough.

After his death, she packs up and goes to college to try and move on with her life.  She meets and falls in love with Shawn who also has ties to “The Families.”  No matter, we see her thriving and mostly learning to love and trust……However, Angelina soon learns that the “PAST” Giano tried to shelter her from is not gone. Her past is going to come back to haunt her and her new love.

I am so excited to see the final installment. Fallyn returns to kick some ass.  Angelina is the sweet face to our girl but when Fallyn comes out to play, ya’ll better be ready.  She is not happy and she is going to be leaving a trail of blood in her wake!!!

Bullet by Jade C. Jamison

synopsis

Find out why readers have dubbed Jade C. Jamison the “Queen of Rock Romance” with the complete Bullet series, described as “gritty,” “raw,” and “real.” Real rock stars, real angst and heartache in this true-to-life glimpse of sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

BULLET (Book 1)
An Epic Rock Star Novel

What if you discover the man you want is toxic?

She tasted a little bit of heaven with him, and now they’ve gone through hell and back, but can their relationship take anymore?

Valerie Quinn is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan Richards. He’s an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man, but he’s captured her heart. She doesn’t give up on him and eventually his walls crumble down. By the time Valerie has given herself to him completely, she discovers he’s damaged and may be beyond help. Can she save Ethan and their relationship before he implodes, or will he self-destruct and take her with him?

CAUTION! SPOILERS follow in the remaining book descriptions!!!

ROCK BOTTOM (Book 2)
Rock star Ethan Richards has fought depression and a host of other demons all his adult life, and it’s caused him to lose everything–his wife, his son, his friends, and he almost loses the one thing that means the most to him–his band. He hits rock bottom and believes there is no way out.

Enter Jenna McCormick, a feisty drug and alcohol counselor, a woman with her own share of troubles. She finds Ethan intriguing but keeps him at a distance while trying to help him face life without crutches. She feels a spark but denies it, knowing that a relationship with unstable Ethan could be dangerous for both of them.

Ethan knows what he wants, though, and isn’t used to being told no. Jenna isn’t willing to risk Ethan losing his tenuous grip on sobriety, however, and is prepared to deny her deeper feelings to help Ethan climb out of his hole, but he learns how to let go of his pain when he finds that someone is prepared to walk with him through the shadows. Can he convince Jenna that they should take a chance on love or will they forever deny their feelings in an effort to keep Ethan on the straight and narrow?

FEVERISH (Book 3)
…To be loved by the good guy
…To be f**ked by the bad boy
He’ll make you FEVERISH either way…

Clayton “Jet” Smith has enjoyed acting the part of rock star god / incorrigible bad boy since his breakup with rock goddess Valerie Quinn. He’s racking up quite a score playing the field, and he has no plans to settle down anytime soon. His biggest problem these days is meeting his obligations. He’s so busy having fun, he forgets the important things.

To help him out, he hires recent graduate Emily Brinkman to be his personal assistant, and he quickly finds a fire burning in his belly for her. There are two problems, however. The first is that Emily is engaged to be married, a fact that leaves Jet unfazed. The second problem isn’t so easy to surmount, though: Emily is disgusted and unimpressed by both sides of the man.

Will Clay find a way to persuade Emily to try him out, not just for one night, but for all time?

angies review

Bullet, Book 1 Review –

I received this book for an honest review from the author and honest you shall get!!!

I am sitting here at my computer sobbing, literally sobbing over this book. I went through a box of tissues and a packet of tums. IN-FREAKING-TENSE was this book.

I am a fan of really emotional, gut wrenching, tear your heart out and stomp on it while it lays on the floor kinda books!! This book sooooooo qualifies.

Val is such an amazing person who is so giving and loving but seems to be stuck in the ever emotional toxic love of Ethan. Ethan is just a true measure of addiction and doesn’t appreciate Val for all she is worth. His idea of “chasing her” is screwing everything else that has a skirt on or getting so high he cant even function. This is pretty much their relationship but the addiction continues to get worse and worse as does his behavior and attitude toward her. I think the author did a great job showing the true relationship of a couple when addiction is involved. It is heart wrenching that Ethan has had emotional and physically abusive relationships but he is so self involved he has no idea he is doing the same thing to Val.

There were a few scenes where I broke for Val when she was confronted by Ethan’s wondering ways. I feared for her because she knows in her heart he is not a “good person” but the party scene absolutely crushed me along with her. I think, like Val, i wanted him to have some redeeming qualities…..but the party killed me. I broke for her and me at that point. Then I broke for the man I wanted to see Val with. The man who loved her, supported and cared for her even though she was stuck in this web of Ethan lies and betrayal.

Well along the way Val does develop some emotionally sustaining and loving relationships. SOME of the “relationships” I was like “you go girl!!” I loved the men who helped her through tough times with Ethan. However no matter what, she would always return to Ethan. This dance goes on for a few years.

I am not going to talk specifics because I will totally end up giving away the whole story BUT if you love rocker books and you love emotionally raw “real” books then this is the book for you. seriously. i cannot wait to read the books for the other band members!!!!

about the author

Jade C. Jamison was born and raised in Colorado and has decided she likes it enough to stay forever. Jade’s day job is teaching Creative Writing, but teaching doesn’t stop her from doing a little writing herself.

Unfortunately, there’s no one genre that quite fits her writing. Her work has been labeled romance, erotica, suspense, and women’s fiction, and the latter is probably the safest and closest description. But you’ll see that her writing doesn’t quite fit any of those genres.

You’ll have to discover Jade’s writing for yourself to decide if you like it.

WHUT!!  Jade is writing a RH.  When did this happen and how did I NOT KNOW? Those were my first questions when she asked me to read this book for her.  I LOVE RH.  I know they aren’t for everyone but hey that’s cool.  I am a HUGE fan and was totally stoked to jump right in.

So raise your hand if you like The Bachelor or the Bachelorette? Well them this my friends will be something you will also love to read.  Claire is an actress who agreed to be on this kinda dating show.  She will be living with 5 men for 4 weeks and at the end, hopefully she will have a hubby, dream house and career in Hollywood.

We get to meet all the guys right away when they have dinner in the house.  Lemme say, I have my favorite already and ones I can’t stand already…..#TeamGrayson alllllll day long!!  #TeamCutSpencer allllll day long.  We are jumping right into challenges to win time with our single lady Claire.  When the winner is crowned she still gets alone time with the other guys but in a much shorter time span.  We see all the guys and love each one for a different reason…ok I didn’t love them all but yeah that is just me.

Right when we THINK we know what is going to happen we are given news that the “winning” guys gets cash?  HRMMMMM???  But the biggest WTF moment was when we learn Claire doesn’t get to “give a rose” to the dudes she wants to keep…no my friends the studio audience picks! GASP!  So crazy!!  But I will add I have serious concerns about our TV Host Cat.  I see Shady town written alllllll over her face!!!

I can’t wait for the next installment of the series!!  I have my fingers crossed that the studio audience hears my cried of #CutTheDB about Spencer.

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging than Dirty Dancing, she–like Baby–won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance–and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

When chance brings them back together can she find it in her heart to forgive him and save his friends?

Review by Becky

I received this book for my honest review.

Again, Anna, you hit a home run. I knew that Zain and Izzy would end up together and it would not be without comflict. Zain just couldn’t move on without Izzy. Trying to substitute honey sandwiches for his hunny, Izzy, didn’t work. His honey sandwich appetite just grew.

For Izzy to finally share with Zain that she knew he was a shifter even before he left her, showed Zain all he needed to know. Izzy was his. Anna weaves a beautiful story working through how so many people judge others by their differences. They fear those differences and instead of welcoming the opportunity to learn and grow together, distrust and dislike run a muck.

Without giving any spoilers….. Iceland and the events. HOLY MOLY!!! I can’t wait until Nuka gets what’s coming to him. Kas’s pack will be successful and will show that family is not always blood.

Ok, this is the bit where I have to sell myself. Why is it so much easier to write about sexy blokes! Anyway.

I am a British author, from the depths of the rural countryside near London. In a previous life, I was an Accountant from the age of twenty-one. I still do that on occasions, but most of my life is now spent intermingling writing while looking after my husband, two children and two cats (probably in the inverse order to the one listed!). When I have some spare time I can also be found writing poetry, baking cakes (and eating them), or behind a camera snapping like a mad paparazzi.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It was also around this time that I became one of the founding members of a dramatic/erotic/dark roleplaying group on Twitter. It was wildly popular with both English and American followers. The writing helped me to overcome my depression by giving me an outlet to channel my thoughts into and not sit around worrying all day about things that would never happen. I took over responsibility for management of the group and responsibility for the development of our storylines. As well as playing at least ten different characters in the group ranging from an innocent virgin, bloodthirsty assassin and even a male lover. The success of the role-play spurred me on to writing novels.

I have a love of travelling and like to bring this to my stories to give them the air of reality. Surrendered Control, my first book released in November 2016, combines two of my favourite travel destinations. India is where I lived for eighteen months with my husband and two children. My young son was only six months old when we travelled there. It was a fabulous time for us all and they learnt so much about the differing cultures, as well as, much to my husband’s chagrin, spending lots of money in the silk shops. The Control series will feature lots of international travel.

I have always been an avid reader. Mainly murder mystery in the past but with Beautiful Bastard I discovered a whole new set of novels and I haven’t looked back since. I like my heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. My heroines demure but with spunk. And my books in a kick arse series.
