Miranda Lynn

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Miranda Lynn and I’m freaking awesome! That’s my daily mantra for 2018 anyway. I hate these questions. I’m a Taurus, I enjoy my coffee in the morning, chatting with my amazing author friends, blog bitches, and readers extraordinaire. I’m an average person, mom, wife, constantly working on myself and the characters I write. I’m a procrastinator, constantly trying to find what works to keep me organized and a hater of all things having to do with cleaning.

When and Why did you start to write?

I started really focusing on writing more than a journal page about five years ago. I was inspired by a group of Indie Authors that told me to just write the story I would want to read.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

JM Walker, Sandra Neeley, Theresa Hissong, LK Shaw, Charity Parkerson, Terry Maggert, Maggie Adams, hmm maybe I should just take a picture of my bookshelf and share there are so many.

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

How tedious revisions can be and what a horrible person I am with grammer. Thank heavens for great editors!!

What are you working on now?

I just finished Sterling who comes out January 15th. I am now working on revision a short story for a box set coming in the Summer and I have picked up the third and final book in the Destiny Trilogy.

Rook (Black Mountain Pack Book 2)

Blurb

Rook heads to South America and finds his hands full with bringing the Pride out of the dark ages that Tomas had kept it in for years under his malicious ruling. He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?

Sterling (Black Mountain Pack #3)

Blurb:

Feeling the need for a change, fox-shifter, Sterling accepts a mission in Texas to help a struggling pack’s club. The situation is worse than they thought when they arrive but when Sterling meets Reana he know he’s found he’s been given a second chance to have a mate . Too bad she doesn’t want one.

Reana is one of the few in her pack not effected by the black magic affecting them. When Sterling came to town, she thought he’d be the answer to their problems with the Resistance. She wasn’t expecting a possessive mate ready to settle down just when she’s ready to take off.

Time is running out and Sterling needs Reana’s help to save the pack before they’re forever trapped in this web of magic wreaking havoc on all their lives. But Reana isn’t sure she can accept fate and her mate, just as she’s ready to leave pack life behind for a life of solitude. Will Sterling change her mind and get his second chance? Or will Reana’s strong will keep them both from the happiness they deserve?

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Total Pantser. The only thing I plot are which characters get a book, hell I don’t even have an order. I tried that last year and my characters laughed hysterically and chose their own times to be written.

#NewRelease – Princess Witch, The Reigh Witch Chronicles Author: Billie Dale

Title: Princess Witch
Series: The Reigh Witch Chronicles
Author: Billie Dale
Genre: PNR / RomCom / NA / Mystery
Release Date: January 10, 2018 

What I want: Normalcy; to go to college and leave Erigate in my rearview mirror.


What I get: Acting Queen duties and a giant mess.

Mom’s pregnant and, with some unforeseen complications, she hands the reigns of her land over to me. It’s got to be easy, right? Do what my mother needs to be done for the sake of the kingdom, wait for her to deliver the baby, and then I’m off to college. 

Wrong, so very wrong. A murdered body left by a cold-blooded killer is found, throwing an uber wrench in my plans.

Now, I have extra security in the form of a hot, brooding shifter named Phoenix Winston, plus a super sexy half-alien/half-human hybrid – the one and only Declan Moore. 

My powers are amped, two men are making me question everything and I have a killer to catch. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I’ll either figure out what I’m doing or accidentally burn it all to the ground. Either way, my life just became interesting.



A small, plump woman, appearing to be around 35 years old, stands before me with a large pink pig on a leash next to her. “Your Highness,” she says dipping her knees in a curtsy. 

Her amber eyes are sparkling with mischief and my spidey sense is tingling. 

Wait, I have never had any kind of sixth sense before. 

I’ve never been able to pick up what someone was feeling. Pride is flowing from this woman in waves, she’s exuding exoneration. Whatever she’s done, she believes was right and merited. 

“This should be good,” Brooke speculates softly.

“What may I help you with today?” I ask.

“My husband thinks a woman’s place is in the home, cooking, and cleaning. He believes I shouldn’t have an opinion or a say in any matters involving our children. He thinks I’m to be seen and not heard. He’s under the delusion, it’s proper for a man to have an affair if his wife doesn’t obey and follow his rules,” she finishes holding tightly to the leash while the pig thrashes and squeals.

A headache begins to form from the loud screeching coming from the pig, “Ma’am, why have you brought that animal into the forum?” I whimper, covering one ear to block some of the noise.

“He’s registering his protest, my Queen,” she replies tugging hard on the lead causing the pig to choke.

“His protest, Madame? Why does this farm animal have a protest?”

“Because this is Harold, my husband,” she boasts.

My eyes move to the pig and back to the woman. I place my hand to my mouth to hide my smile, I need a second to compose myself and listening to Brooke’s twinkling laughter in my ear isn’t helping. Straightening my features so I can look the lady in the eye without busting out chuckling, I ask, “You turned your husband into a pig?”

“It seemed quite fitting, Highness. His beliefs were archaic,” she replies, her voice confident, convinced I’ll agree with her.

“Were you aware these were his beliefs when you wed and had children?”

“We’ve been married a very long time, don’t let my youthful appearance fool you. When we wed, women were meant to be in the home but that was decades ago and views on women have changed but Harold refuses to change with them. When he began having affairs, I decided he’d be better off as bacon.”
A stay at home mother of four who loves to read, blog, and write. Billie Dale is from a small blip of a town in no where Indiana. When she doesn’t have her nose buried in a book or glued to a keyboard she can be found cuddled up with her amazing husband of 14 years, loving on her sweet, sweet grandbaby or cheering for her kids sports.

#REVIEW – Wanting My Stepsister by Alexa Riley

Libby Moore is trying to figure out what to do with her life. She has graduated high school, but there’s only one thing she’s ever truly wanted in life…the one thing she can’t have…her stepbrother, Jasper.

Jasper Lewis tried to get away from the one person he shouldn’t want. But moving only a couple of miles away was a pitiful effort, and he’s tired of resisting what he wants. He’s coming back to claim what’s been his since day one, no matter what the consequences.

This taboo love is so dirty, so wrong, and your lady business is gonna thank you!

Warning: It’s okay if you like it, because this is a judgment-free zone. But these two are about to get it on like their dad may walk in at any moment. Enjoy!!

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Every time I read an Alexa Riley book, I think that it’s my favourite one and then I pick up another and that one ends up being my favourite. So for now, as I type this review, Wanting My Stepsister, is my favourite AR book.

Jasper. Libby. Wow.

So just like the other AR books I’ve read which unfortunately isn’t many yet (I’m working my way through the list), this one is short but hot. Wow. So hot. One thing about these guys, is they sure love getting their women pregnant cause dannnnnnnnnng.

I got nothing else. Read this book.

#REVIEW – Dirty Uncle by Alexa Riley and‎ Jessa Kane

Rex spends a lot of time on king crab fishing boats. So much time that he’s never bothered to settle down . So the day he sees his step-niece for the first time, he’s not ready for what she makes him feel.

Clara is old enough to make her own decisions, and she’s decided she wants her step-uncle Rex. Everyone is telling her it’s wrong, but she can only follow her heart. She just needs to be ready for the consequences when he finally claims her.

Warning: When Jessa and Alexa team up you know it’s going to be terrible. Terribly-wonderful! This over-the-top tidal wave of love is about to sweep you under. Don’t worry, you’ll thank us!

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Wow. Well this one was fun. Short and hot. Insanely hot. And taboo of course. I’m still new to Alexa Riley and this is my first book by these ladies where they team up with Jessa again. But from what I can tell, these authors pack quite a punch in the kindle explosion department.

Rex doesn’t know who his step-niece is so when this beautiful young thing falls into his arms, literally, he takes advantage of it. But of course, it’s short lived when they get caught.

I love the Daddy/little girl dynamic in this. I haven’t read many stories with this so it was refreshing. Rex is everything Clara needs and Clara is everything that makes the big bear of a man turn into a lovable kitten. Until she misbehaves of course.

 

#REVIEW – My New Step-Dad by Alexa Riley

I shouldn’t want him, but I do.

I’ve got one week to get through until my mother’s estate clears, and then I’ll be free to go.

All I’ve got to do is keep my hands off my new step-dad, Bruce. But that’s easier said than done.

I shouldn’t want her, but I do.

I can’t remember the last time I touched a woman. Heck, I can’t remember the last time I touched myself. But ever since little Sophie showed up, I can’t think of anything but claiming her.

Forbidden love and secret obsessions will have you begging for the climax.

Warning: You can beg all you want…Bruce won’t be forced.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

Holy balls this book was hot. And dirty. And so dang inappropriate, it was wonderful. This was my first book by Alexa Riley and what a delicious treat it was.

Sophie moves in with her step-dad who hasn’t been with a woman in quite a long time. But once he sees her, someone who he’s supposed to be taking care of for a week, he wasn’t expecting the reaction he has to her.

Sophie and Bruce go back and forth until they can’t take anymore. If you want a hot little read to keep you warm during these cold winter nights, this story is for you.

I think I’ll be binging books by Alexa for awhile.

#CoverReveal – Through The Woods by Shannon Myers

Forced to run from her drug-dealing boyfriend, Neve ends up injured and alone in the middle of the Colorado wilderness. She never planned on being rescued by seven bikers and brought to their clubhouse. While the other bikers welcome a female presence, their leader, Charm, is not impressed. As Neve recuperates, she begins to see that there’s much more to this club president than she thought possible. However, while she might’ve run, she can’t stay hidden forever.

Authors Amazon Page

Shannon is a born and raised Texan. She grew up inventing clever stories, usually to get herself out of trouble. Her mother was not amused. In junior high, she began writing fractured fairy tales from the villain’s point of view and that was the moment she knew that she was going to use her powers for evil instead of good.

In 2003, she moved to Denver and met the love of her life. After some relentless stalking and a few well-timed sarcastic remarks, the man eventually gave in to her charms and wifed her so hard. They welcomed a son in 2007 that they named after their favorite Marvel superhero, Spiderman.

Sick of seeing beautiful mountains through their window every day, the three escaped back to the desolate landscape of the west Texas desert in 2009. She welcomed her second son not long after and soon realized that being surrounded by three men was nothing at all like she’d imagined in her fantasies.

After an unplanned surgery in 2014 and a long pity party, she decided to pen a novel about the worst thing that could happen to a person in order to cheer herself up. She’s twisted like that. Thus, From This Day Forward was born and the rest, as they say, is history.

Not only does Shannon enjoy stalking people, she also has a fondness for being stalked. Visit her at www.shannonshaemyers.com to keep up with her latest schemes and shenanigans.

 

 

#Excerpt – Payback by Kristin Harte

Payback

***COMING IN 2018 FROM ELLIS LEIGH WRITING AS KRISTIN HARTE***

In Justice, Colorado, the Kennards run everything, including the only big business in the area. Their sawmill employs most of the town, and the Kennard brothers live up to a long family history of keeping their neighbors and coworkers safe—until a motorcycle club comes to town and starts causing trouble. Big trouble. The kind that ends in funerals. The kind no law enforcement can help them with.

He carries the burden of protecting an entire town
Being the oldest Kennard brother, I’ve got a centuries-old promise to uphold—run the family business to give the townspeople jobs and the sort of security they can only find in Justice. When a motorcycle club blows that plan apart, I’ll do anything to make them aware that they picked the wrong town to target. As a former Green Beret, I know just how to sabotage an enemy. The only weakness in my armor is my obsession with a five-foot-nothing blonde who unknowingly holds my heart in her hands. My attraction to her could cost me my life, but I’d sacrifice it all to save hers.

She owes a debt that could cost her life
I’ve spent three years hiding out in Justice and paying off a debt to the Soul Suckers, one they’ve decided to collect whether I’m ready to pay or not. When danger lands on my doorstep, one man jumps in to help. Alder Kennard—former Special Forces soldier and current object of all my fantasies. But the Soul Suckers won’t let a debt go unpaid, and with the price on my head rising every day, it’s only a matter of time until they come back for me. Alder would put his life on the line to save mine, which is something I simply can’t afford.

Everyone has a debt to pay, and the only currency I have left is my body. So when the time comes, I’ll trade my life for his.

Goodreads

 

“I worry about you, honey.” 


My response came automatically, the lie too easy to tell. “You don’t need to.”


“I think I do. I think I can’t help myself.”


I shivered, entranced by Alder’s voice, by the look on his face, by how close he stood. The man had owned me since the first moment I met him, since that first day when he’d ordered a cup of coffee and smiled at me. He still did, and I was so sick of fighting my desire for him.


I took a deep breath and closed the gap between us, grabbing his arms as I pressed my breasts against that rock-hard chest I’d dreamed about too many times to count. Surrendering to him and praying he didn’t make me regret it. “So what are you going to do about it?”


He didn’t answer me—didn’t need to. He cupped my chin in one huge, rough hand, running his thumb over my lips as he kept his blue eyes locked on mine. Waiting. Looking for something. So I gave him the only thing I could—my approval. In the form of a kiss pressed to his thumb as it passed. His response was immediate.


Eyes gleaming, he dropped down to claim my mouth. I couldn’t call what he did a kiss. The word wasn’t big enough to encapsulate the way his entire body became involved in the act or how he dominated my lips, my tongue, my mouth. It wasn’t a kiss—it was a claiming. He plundered me. Hand on my face, one arm sliding around my waist to pin me to him, he attacked my mouth with an intensity that made me gasp. No soft pecks or easy start, no working his way up to anything—he overtook me, taking advantage of my quiet gasp to lick his way inside.


I could have died right then and there with his taste on my tongue and had no regrets. 


Heart racing, skin itching with the need to be touched by this man, I let go of all the voices telling me this could never happen, and I kissed him back. He groaned as I threaded my fingers in his hair and tugged him closer, his hands squeezing me hard enough to leave marks. Good, I wanted that. Wanted to see his claim on me. Needed the reminder that for one brief moment, I’d been his. Completely.


But Alder wasn’t satisfied with kissing, it seemed. Our tongues tangling, he turned me so my back was to the counter, then reached down to grab me by the thighs and hoist me up. My ass landed on the stainless steel, my legs spreading on instinct to give the

man room to step between them. And he did. 


And he was so damn hard.


“Give me permission,” he said, nibbling over my chin. “I won’t take from you, but if you let me…if you want me to.” He groaned, his hips jerking against mine almost of their own volition. “Give me permission, honey. Tell me I can feel you. Let me take care of you so I can watch you come.”

Kristin Harte started off as a chemistry major in college but somehow ended up writing romances featuring ex-military heroes and the women who knock them to their knees…literally and figuratively. She likes drinking in the shade, snuggling under a warm blanket on a cold evening, and researching how to blow things up. Her children know nothing of what she writes, and her husband just hopes he’s not at their Chicago-ish home the day the government shows up to confront Kristin about her Google search history.
When not writing good men doing bad things, Kristin can be found writing paranormal romance as Ellis Leigh or co-writing naughty novellas as London Hale.

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

I love this series and of course Others of Edenton. Brandy has a way of capturing me and taking me away with her characters.  She has strong willed women and protective males.

In the previous book Amelia was turned into a vampire and now the Council needs her help to solve a case. This puts Brent and Amelia together to work closely on this case. The draw that keeps pulling these two together is unavoidable. Brent is cautious when it comes to Amelia and them binding he only wants it to happen if that is what she really wants and not because of an assignment. Not only does this assignment bring her and Brent closer but Amalia is faced with Eamon who tries to get her to be with him by helping to unlock her past.

The twist and turns kept me wondering what was going to happen. Loved Amelia and Brent together and to see their story unfold was incredible. I was so enthralled when both Amelia and Brent’s back story came to light. The thing that was most amazing was what Brent and Amelia has to be able to pull off for this assignment to work. I have to say it the one think I love about this series and Others of Edenton Series is how well Brandy entwines the characters from both series. I cannot wait for her next book she has a way of telling a brilliant story not matter if it is her paranormal or her contemporary.

#REVIEW – Trapped with Twins for Christmas: A Holiday MFM Quickie by Kat Crimson

Nancy is having a bad week! Car troubles, money troubles, work troubles… you name it. When showing up late to a meeting gets her put on holiday decorating detail, her problems go from bad to worse. With her job on the line, Nancy’s last minute Christmas tree shopping expedition turns into a dangerously snowy adventure, as she gets Trapped with Twins for Christmas!

Warning: the temperatures outside may be extremely low, but this quickie is oh so hot! If you’re looking for a sizzling holiday romance novella featuring two alpha male lumberjack twins for Christmas, this is it!

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I haven’t read a lot of Holiday stories. I didn’t even watch a lot of Holiday movies over Christmas. But this little story caught my attention and it’s free. Can’t beat that.

Kat always delivers in her sexy hot stories. This one is short but it definitely makes some heat.

Nancy is having a crappy week. During the holidays of course. She needs to find a Christmas tree and ends up shacked up with twins while she waits for the winter storm to pass by. Well they kill some time and definitely warm each other up.

Read this little hottie to find out if Nancy did in fact get her tree. 😉
