#WOTR18 #AuthorSpotlight – Attending Author Sarah Grimm @SarahGrimmAuthr

Sarah Grimm

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Sarah Grimm and I write contemporary romance. I live in southwest Michigan, along the shores of Lake Michigan with my husband of 25 years, two sons and three pups. I love reading romance. But, I love writing romance even more—bringing two people together, even if it is only in my imagination. I love the stuttered heartbeats when the hero and heroine first meet—that first glance. I love the gut punch of sexual awareness, the sweetness of that first kiss, and the momentary panic over the realization they’ve fallen in love. Most of all, I love the idea how even at the worst of times, at those moments when they least expect it, two people can find love.

When and Why did you start to write?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I have notebooks filled with poems, story ideas, and partial chapters from as far back as age five. But I didn’t write more than bits and pieces of stories until my youngest son was born. He was healthy at birth, colicky, irritable even, but healthy—until he turned six weeks old and began showing symptoms of croup. I can’t tell you how many times we rushed to the hospital with a child who was turning blue, only to be told by the doctors that they didn’t know what was wrong with him. Most of them thought I was just a young, overreacting mother (I even got the condescending pat on the head from a few), but one believed there was something more going on than croup.
That man saved my child’s life. He found a birthmark in my son’s throat that obstructed eighty percent of his airway. By the time we were done, my baby had endured stomach surgery, throat surgery, and a tracheotomy with all the special care that entails. As you can imagine, all the hospital time left me desperate for a distraction, so I took pen to paper — yup, longhand — and wrote my first romance. Not just bits and pieces of a book, but the entire hero and heroine’s journey from ‘Chapter One’ to ‘The End’.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

]HelenKay Dimon, Tess Gerritsen, Kay Hooper, & Amy Lillard

What are you working on now?

A novella titled Sweet Distraction. Here’s the blurb:

He’s supposed to protect her body, not ravish it.

After injury forces him to leave his military career behind, Cole Sweet finds himself adrift, struggling against hellish memories and loss of identity. When his childhood friend, agent to rock goddess Jessie Ford, offers him a job as her bodyguard, Cole is hesitant to accept. What does he know about the glitzy world of rock and roll? He’s a warrior, not a glorified babysitter to some spoiled princess. Except Jessie is nothing like Cole imagined. Her lush curves and vivacious personality captivate him, tempting him in ways he finds impossible to resist.

Jessie Ford is at the top of her career. Her image graces the cover of Overdrive, the world’s biggest rock magazine, and her new single has debuted atop the charts, putting her on track to becoming the most downloaded female artist of the year. She has one clear objective, and nothing will stand in the way of her goal. Especially not an ex-Marine with a chip on his shoulder. Even if he does bring new meaning to the word distraction.

#Review #ARCReviewTeam – Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy #1) by Lara Adrian

Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy, #1)


Midnight Breed – Hunter Legacy Book 1

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian introduces the first novel in a thrilling new vampire romance series set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman’s laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence. Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. But when he thwarts a killing under way in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas, Asher meets a beautiful woman who draws him into a deadly game against powerful enemies—one that will test both his skills and his tarnished honor.

Naomi Fallon is used to getting out of dicey situations. Orphaned as a child after her mother’s murder, she didn’t survive twenty-six years on the street without using up most of her nine lives. But when her latest caper lands her in the Mojave against a Vegas gangster’s henchman, she’s certain her number is up.

Then he appears—immense, brutal, and far from human. Naomi’s never needed anyone’s help, least of all one of the Breed. But after one risk too many, only a man with Asher’s skills can keep her safe. Yet the solitary, seductively handsome vampire has enemies of his own, and a secret that will not only shatter her faith in him but her heart, proving what she’s feared all along—that trust is only an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.




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

So exciting to see a spin off series from one of my favorite original paranormal books/authors.  Midnight Breed was one of the first series who got me back into reading a few years ago.  I have been a huge fan and so when the spin off ARCS were available, I was so excited!!!

This story takes place 20 year after the Breed have been outted to the humans.  We, as a whole human society, are not so thrilled with our fanged neighbors but we are coexisting.  You don’t need to have read the Midnight Breed but seeing as we see characters from the original series it does make the book that much more exciting.

Asher is a Gen 1 Breed who has done more bad things in his life then he wants to remember or think about.  He just wants to live on his farm and be left alone.  Solitary life is perfect for him.  When he runs into a girl and saves her from a bunch of bad men, he is annoyed he can’t just go on his way.  Why can’t he just leave her there?  WELLL she is a rare human.  She is a Breedmate.  He is honor bound to protect her until The Order can come and take her to a safe place.  WELLLLL, Naomi is not about to let that happen.

When Naomi wakes up to be told she is a special vampire baby making human, ok Asher did not say that but she has it in her head he did…LOL she runs for the hills.  She has vengeance plans to make happen.  She will make her mothers murdered pay and she will not fail in her plan.

Naomi and Asher are the perfect pair to be fated together.  They both have horrors in their past and demons in their present to fight to make the HEA happen.  They both are so interested in the other but they will not fail the “duties” they both have even if that pesky chemistry still gets in the way!!  LOL

I can’t wait for another book!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #review #FindingTheGreenRoom #RyanAndJess #TheSutterFamily #SurferRomance #FriendsToLovers #PreorderNow #OneClick – Finding the Green Room, The Sutter Family Book 3 by H.D’Agostino

I’ve always known what I was meant to do… surf. I’ve spent practically every day in the water since I was six searching for the green room. This is where I met my best friend, Ryan. We’ve been inseparable for the better part of our lives. He has always ‘just a friend’, and I am ok with that.

As time passed, our friendship evolved into what I thought could be love, only to be tested. A chance to go pro, to find the green room, was right within my grasp. I had a choice to make… Ryan or the future I’d only dreamt about?


Amazon UK:
Amazon AU:

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

I have been so ready to read this book.  The story of Jess and Ryan has been in the Sutter series since Catching Raindrops, book 1.

Jess and Ryan are soulmates, but Ryan lets jealousy get in the way of his heart.  Jess lets fear and anger push her away from the person she knows will make her happy.

As far as we can remember it was Jess and Ryan.  They were discovering surfing together along with human sexuality *wiggles eyes* Ryan always wants more, and Jess always pulls back.  She knows she loves Ryan and he her, but they are only kids.

When competition gets in the way and the two break up, Ryan turns into a jerk.  He only cares for what makes him happy and for what can hurt Jess.

Jess tried to leave the beach and memories of Ryan but when she comes back to Ems wedding she is forced to deal with her past and Ryan’s new future.

I loved that Em’s wedding was the wake up call Ryan needed to go and chase his dream….Jess.  He knows this is who he needs to be with and will do anything he can to be with her.  We all know how those Sutter men are when they get a plan in their head….unstoppable.

Jess is done with everything, but she makes Ryan work and work hard at gaining her trust and affections again.  She will not be just another one of many for Ryan’s girls.

When the conflict of the story happens and our couple are put into some trouble, we see then pushing toward and away from each other.  WE see Ryan unwavering in his devotion to Jess while Jess falls apart.  Can Jess finally open he eyes and see that Ryan is the man she needs and will Ryan prove to Jess that she is enough for him???

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review #ReverseHarem – Blood Magic (Ariel Kimber #3) by Mary Martel

Blood Magic (Ariel Kimber #3)

Blood Magic is book 3 in the Ariel Kimber Series.

Ariel Kimber isn’t your average seventeen-year-old girl. She’s recently discovered she’s a witch with magic and is looking to find her place in a brand-new world. Her place in this new world is in a coven with seven guys.

After all of the horrible things she’s been forced to endure, Ariel was looking forward to building her new life with the family she’s found herself a part of and focusing on healing with Dash after what Chucky did to the both of them. After the blood that had been spilled, they all struggle to put those memories and the incident behind them. It’s easier said than done, though.

Quinton is plagued with guilt and the rest of them struggle with the fact that they almost lost one of their brothers and Ariel is left with a permanent reminder of the incident.

New bonds are forged, and just as things are starting to settle down again for Ariel and her coven, the Council of Elders makes it’s first appearance in Ariel’s life. And they don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon.



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

Each book blows me away.  Each book gives me answers but then leaves me with even more questions.  Each book we see Ariel bonding with the 7 guys and each book I am dying seeing all the love and affection to grow.  We find out more secrets about ANNABELL….GROWL….we learn about how she took advantage of our guys.  We also see the damage she caused is still a thing on the present.

This book has so much stuff happening and so many secrets spilling yet leaving us wondering CRAP what is Tyson’s dream all about and bigger CRAP what do the council want with our girl.  Side note: Dude the council are some creepy old mo foes. I wanted to say “Put your dicks away because she will not be taking a ride on that saggy thing.  Have you SEEN her 7 guys??  EXACTLY!!”

So this book takes place right after the show down with crazy in love Chucky.  Dash and Ariel are healing, and Quinton is a mess.  He feels so much guilt because he caused the crazy Chucky issue to happen in the first place.  This book I LOVED getting to know Julian and Damien.  Jules is the pensive yet scares the hell outta me guy.  Damien is the hottie who is so outta your reach but seeing him flustered over Ariel was so sweet.

Seeing Quinton and Tyson with our girl so open with affection toward Ariel is awesome.  Seeing Ariel admit to how she is feeling for her guys was so awesome.  She has come a long way to accepting this life she is choosing with our guys.  But my favorite…sigh….the Twin sandwich….sigh.  I have missed my Salt and Pepper storyline so YEAH to getting to hang with them for a bit in the book.

I could totally sit here and just list everything about this book but you need to read it.  I think this book does a great job moving our girl and her boys developing love along.  It also is setting up finding Ariel’s father and the council is up to noooooo good.  Blood magic is being used and I think this will be a very big big big problem for our family in the future.

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.

#NewRelease #Review #KindleWorlds – Until Sunrise (Kindle Worlds: Happily Ever Alpha) by Sarah O’Rourke

Until Sunrise

You met Michelle and Luka in Until Ashlyn.
Get ready to read their wild and crazy backstory in Until Sunrise!
(Releasing on April 3, 2018 as part of the Happily Ever Alpha Kindle World with Aurora Rose Reynolds.)



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

Oh ladies!!  I so love your characters and your world.  I have not read the world that this story is from, but I am in love with these characters they have created.  Luka and Michelle were so amazing to read.

Luka and his over the top alpha mentality and his inability to accept NO form Michelle = Heart happiness!  Michelle is sassy and feisty, so she fights this attraction from the jump even though the chemistry of the two is insanely hot.

Michelle is so afraid of love and Luka is all about claiming her as his.  He is uber uber alpha but he is totally committed to Michelle and what she needs to make everything better.  Who doesn’t love a man who is bossy and loving in the same breath??  LOL

This is another book of the duo that will sit with me for a long time.  I just love the stories they build and then men who they write about.

Sarah O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who have taken their passion for romantic fiction and erotica to the publishing world. Born and raised in the southern United States, one lives near Louisville, KY, while the other resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Neither is ever very far from a tall glass of sweet iced tea, their dog-eared copies of Gone With the Wind, or their Steel Magnolias DVDs!

Formerly an accountant and a chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children, their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible!


#WOTR18 #AuthorSpotlight – Attending Author Traci Douglass @Traci_Douglass

Traci Douglass

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Traci Douglass

Traci is a USA Today Bestselling Author of Contemporary and Paranormal Romance. Her stories feature sizzling heroes full of dark humor, quick wits and major attitudes and heroines who are smart, tenacious, and always give as good as they get. She holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and she loves animals, chocolate, coffee, hot British actors, and sarcasm—not necessarily in that order.

When and Why did you start to write?

I wrote my first book in 2011 after I had a dream that just wouldn’t go away until I put it down on paper. That became my first published novel, Seal of Destiny, which released from Crimson Romance in 2013.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I have wide ranging tastes when it comes to books. Some of my favorite go-to authors are Kristan Higgins, Gena Showalter, Sarah MacLean, KJ Charles, Josh Lanyon, Dan Brown, Joe Hill, and Ernest Cline.

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

Just how long everything takes in traditional publishing. No one really tells you that when you go into it. From submission to an actual book in your hands, the world of publishing definitely works on its own time table.

What are you working on now?

]Well, I just recently signed new contracts with both Harlequin/Mills & Book Medical Romance and also Entangled Bliss. So I’m currently working on the proposal for Book Two on my Harlequin contract and writing my first sweet romance for Bliss. My first book with Harlequin is heading to copy edits now and should release in either late 2018 or early 2019. No firm release dates yet for the Entangled Bliss books. I’ll keep you posted on on those. 🙂

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

A bit of both. I like to start a project with at least my main plot points mapped out, so I know where I’m going. Things like inciting incident, plot points 1 & 2, the black moment, climax, HEA, etc. Then I kind of pants the journey in between, from point to point. That’s where the magic happens. 😉

#WOTR18 #CoverReveal #Giveaway – Stolen Kisses by Elena M. Reyes

Title: Stolen Kisses
Author: Elena M. Reyes
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Erotica
Release Date: April 27, 2018
Cover Artist: Decadent Designs by Dee


Four years of celibacy have turned Hunter Miles into a predator—a dangerous man. He’s horny. Hard. And coming home from college, he never expected to find Bailey Jones so tempting.

It’s an instant infatuation.

She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want—his little sister’s best friend. The last time he saw her she was a knobby-kneed little girl, but what welcomed him home was all woman—her decadent curves and a flirtatious smile tossed at him each time they are within arm’s reach.

She’s tempting.


Offering up her body to a man hanging by a very thin thread.

Fuck the consequences. He wanted her, and she was going to be in his bed by the end of the week.

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 letting characters grow.

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.

It isn’t until his high-school crush returns to town, that he realizes he needs more…

The Pauper…

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

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.
