My name is Maddox Stone. Or at least, it’s the name my clients call me. I’m a private male escort and for a price, I’ll be whatever you want and need me to be. I have the body, I have the looks, and I have a smile that makes any woman swoon.
But It’s just a job. A necessary evil to help fund my dreams of becoming a doctor. I’m simply a robot, performing my required tasks. Until the night I’m hired to seduce Charlotte Harvey and remind her how good a man can make her feel.
I didn’t expect her beauty to spark a desire in me long buried. I didn’t expect her smile to turn that spark into a flame. And I definitely didn’t expect her passion to ignite that flame into an inferno. I should have walked away without looking back, but she started a fire in me that I can’t seem to tame.
How do I keep my dirty little secret without burning her world to the ground?
What a story! Hot hook up with a Mr. Trey Riley for an evening turned into something neither Trey nor Charlotte could have predicted. The story pulled me in instantly and the end left me with questions about Trey and Charlie’s friends. By far I think my favorite part was the trip to the zoo, but I’ll never tell what happened. Fall in love with Trey Riley along with Charlotte just like I did in this upbeat romance.
Michelle Windsor is a wife, mom, and a writer who lives North of Boston with her family. When she isn’t writing, she’s been known to partake in good wine and good food with her family and friends.

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.
Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amid murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?
Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?
Ava Cuvay writes out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly”, without Jar-Jar Binks, and with a lot more heat.
She resides in central Indiana with a hubby who makes her laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. She enjoys the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at her own foibles (yeah, she laughs a lot).
She believes life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.
Talan wants to mark Maya—with more than his ink. The owner of a prominent tattoo shop, he’s used to being hit on by easy women. Though “easy” is not a word associated with Maya when she comes in to support her friend. Flirtation ensues, but what will it take to break the painted man.
Sooooo HAWT!!!!! This is a whirlwind of hot, sass, and tatts!!! We start by meeting our painted man, Talan. He is the owner of a tattoo shop and is constantly being hit on by easy women that he could take home at any time he wants. He is smitten by Maya, a girl who comes into the shop for support for a friend that is getting tatted. Maya is a small girl but takes no crap from anyone. She is witty and he is immediately pulled in by her and she by him. It’s sort of an insta-love type situation but with so much more! The wit and banter between all the characters is hilarious and keeps the story going. So full of angst and of course we have a crazy ex!!! While the two of them are trying to figure out exactly what they are doing “together” they are both trying to reign in their feelings. She wants to go for it and he wants to go slow. But eventually the zero to sixty happens! One of my favorite lines…. “I have no words for the madness you create inside of me.” This was a fast and intense read that made me dive right into Marking Him, the second book in the series, right away! Loving me some Talan and Bitty!!!
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.
A sightless woman.
A man who has seen everything.
A new vision of the future.
For over four centuries the Air Elemental, Nodin Osi, has protected the very air we breathe. Yet when he returns to his ancestral homelands to recruit a beautiful ally, he’s literally set adrift when someone else takes control of his gifts.
Blind since birth, Kamali Kiwidinok can only see the vibrant auras surrounding each human. She blusters into Nodin’s world armed with her special vision only to discover that Nodin is the one person she can actually see.
Quint, an insidious creature composed of dark matter, returns with strong adversaries and stolen magic, holding nothing back in his pursuit of the most powerful witch in history. Unaware the Elementals have developed a spell to banish him from this plane, he relentlessly pursues his goals.
Plunged back into darkness, Kamali must stand against her enemies before helping the Elementals in their fight against Quint. Will Nodin make the ultimate sacrifice for Kamali? Or is the future between a human and a peri-mortal lost in the wind?
With vision there is hope. With hope there is love. – Nodin Osi
I received a copy for a honest review
5 years has past since the events in the second book. During those years the Elementals and Violet have been looking for a way to end Quint when he returns and doing their duties to the earth and it’s inhabitants.
I had felt that Nodin in the past books, while not cold and standoffish, to have a guarded way about him and the book tells us the reason for that.
We get to see what made shaped this great Elemental into what he has become, a man who does his duty and while he loves his family that is all he loves, though he does feel compassion for the humans.
Jacobs shows a whole other side to Nodin by introducing him to Kamali. Kamali is a blind woman of that can see only the aura around people until she meets Nodin, him she can see fully. He has put off meeting her for all this time, though she is part of the plan to get rid of Quint, to give Violet and Flint more time together in case the plan fails.
Kamali isn’t such a strong woman, yet there is a softness, a purity even though she has been through so much.
We are introduced to some new characters: Maize, Kamali’s companion and seeing eye dog, Adler, her uncle who uses her gifts for his own gain, and Raven, her evil Aunt she never knew about until now who has gifts of her own.
I think what is conveyed in this story is that there is no escaping destiny. Whether your destined to be with a certain person, destined to die, or destined to be something more it will happen, destiny always finds a way.
Nodin and Kamali are wonderful together, she gives him what he has been missing and he gives her all the love and support she needs.
I hope Jacobs gives us one more book, Death needs his story told and I hope to see more from the Elementals and Mother Nature.

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the so-called sensible sister and the one man she never should have fallen for.
For Thea Montgomery, baking isn’t only therapeutic, it’s also her dream job. She’s worked countless hours keeping her bakery afloat, and now that it’s where she wants it to be, she’s ready to expand and take the next step. When it comes to work and her family, she’s on top of her game. Her personal life, however, is a different story.
When Dimitri Carr isn’t teaching and hiding his ink under long sleeves to keep the bosses happy, he’s trying to be the best brother and friend he can be. After his divorce, he’d thought he would lose Thea from his life forever because she’s his ex-wife’s best friend. But now that he’s free, and the two of them realize they want to keep their friendship. Then he finally sees what he’s been missing all this time.
But there are more problems than the fact that Dimitri is Thea’s best friend’s ex. And when accidental touches and flirtations aren’t enough for either of them, and they’re finally ready to take the next step, they’ll find out exactly what that cost is for crossing that line. And will need to find the strength to face it.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.
I don’t know how many times I’ve said it, but I love this family!!!!!!
Thea Montgomery is the head baker and owner of Colorado Icing and loves it.
In her sister Addi’s book we learned that Thea’s best friend Molly and her husband Dimitri were divorcing.
Thea was having a hard time because she was friends with both before they even got married and was finding it hard to stay that way after the divorce.
Dimitri Carra divorced tatted teacher and lets not forget he’s a HOTTIE!!!Oh and he loves dogs too!!! Lol.
After seeing each other after again after her date from hell Thea has thoughts about him that she’s never thought before.
In typical Montgomery fashion we have scenes that involve the Colorado Springs siblings.I absolutely love these, they show just how close this family is.
Thea and Dimitri are so good that I don’t know why he even married Molly!!These guys should have been together before now, but maybe they weren’t ready to see how much more than friends they could be.
As with a lot of Ryan’s books in the middle of couples falling in love there is also a lot going on in their lives else where.
Thea’s in the middle of trying to finalize things in the next step for her bakery, Dimitri has the normal troubles that go along with being a teacher, and there is the drama that may or may not be coming from Molly Dimitri’s ex.
Ryan never disappoints and always leaves you wanting the next story.The next Montgomery is going to be a doozy, but it will as always be well worth the wait.

I owe him, and all I have to repay the ruthless crime boss…is me. I tell myself it’s not pity that burns in his eyes when I dance for him, that my walls are so high he can’t see how broken I am inside.
Now danger stalks me again, and Tomas swoops in, only this time he shows me a different side of himself. Fierce protectiveness. Raw hunger. A tenderness that could sear through the barriers I raised to safeguard my heart and soul.
My past taught me not to trust. But this glorious sinner might be the one man I need to learn to love again.

I was staring at my laptop, trying and failing to work, when a light knock hit my office door. I knew who it was, and when she pushed open the door and walked in, I knew why she was seeking me out, what she wanted.
What she needed.
Even if she didn’t.
She was wearing that same robe I’d seen her in earlier. It was hanging open, shorts and what looked like a tank on underneath.
“You’re still up,” she said, walking in.
I sat back in my chair, not even trying to hide how hard I was, fucking hoping she’d see it, realize how on edge I was, and run the other way. “What’s going on, Steph?”
She shrugged. “I couldn’t sleep.” She looked around the office as she moved to the other side of the desk. “I thought I’d see if you were still awake. If you wanted to maybe watch a movie?”
I should humor her, pretend just like she was, but that was impossible, especially tonight. I’d been gentle with her for twelve months, given her space. Maybe that was the problem. Maybe I’d given her too much space. So I shook my head. “That’s not why you’re here.”
She stilled, biting down on her lip, eyes getting wider. “What?”
“Watching a movie isn’t what you want, Angel. That’s not why you’re in my office.”
“No…I…” She trailed off because she knew I was right and she couldn’t lie to herself or me about that fact now that I’d called her out.
She was hot and needy, she wanted what she knew I could give her, and she was scared of it at the same time. Ryan had fucked her up in ways I could never understand, but I wasn’t going to let him take this from her, from us.
“Come here, Stephanie.”
She blinked, frozen like a deer in headlights.
I held her gaze. “You trust me?”
I sat there waiting for her to make her decision. She stared back at me for the longest time, then finally, fucking finally, she started toward me. When she reached my side, I took her hand, bringing it to my lips, pressing a kiss to her trembling fingers then the inside of her wrist. “When was the last time you had an orgasm, Angel?”
Sherilee Gray is a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful New Zealand with her husband and their two children.

Author: Sierra Hill
Genre: Contemporary Erotic MFM Romance
Release Date: TuesdaySeptember 18, 2018
Reckless Youth by Sierra Hill
Conventional wisdom says you can’t love two people, but I’ve proved that wrong. Because I did.
I’ve loved two boys in my lifetime. Two boys I grew up with; boys I laughed with and cried with and eventually fell in love with.
Our love morphed into an overwhelming devotion eventually opening our eyes, bodies and hearts to a very different type of love.
A Forbidden Love.
A Lustful Love.
A Doomed Love.
They say that the heart isn’t meant for that kind of duplicity, but my stupid stubborn heart never listened.
Loving them was a necessity, something akin to breathing.
Nothing could keep us apart.
Until that fateful night – the night that tore my heart into two equal, broken parts.
Reckless Youth is Part One of a three-part, epic, MFM love story that spans the course of 25 years. It has drama, love, betrayal, sacrifice and of course, lots of steamy MFM action.
PRAISE FOR Reckless Youth:
“I started this book and next thing I knew it was 11pm and I was 90% through it! Now I find myself shaking and counting down the days until I can get my hands on Reckless Abandon! 💜” – Kelly, Goodreads reviewer
“Be ready to question your own beliefs on relationships and to fall in love with this trio (MFM) as they fall in love with each other.” – Jennifer, Goodreads reviewer
“Being a serial, you can expect a cliffhanger of course, but let me tell you, I absolutely, truly wasn’t expecting anything like *that*!” – Nina, blogger
I received a copy of the book for my honest review.
Holy hay bales!!!! You rocked again Pam. Lorne and Raina’s story is beautifully told. The heartaches both suffered at the hands of others and their shear personal strengths to survive is told so well that you can feel the heartache they each felt. They are so much alike yet different. Raina’s Native American heritage gives her the insight to see and hear Lorne and his pain. She knows he is a good man and loved hard by Jake, Conor, and Jarret. She uses her knowledge to slowly bring Lorne to life and back to living the life he deserves. Lorne has shut himself off and down. That’s the only way he could survive in prison. He is finally released from prison his sentence to find Raina in his bed. Lorne is torn by the sight of abused Raina in his bed. He feels the draw to her. He sees and hears Raina and her pain. The desire Lorne and Raina have to help each other overcome their painful past draws them closer together. Raina tells Lorne her story. He is fit to be tied. Lorne and Raina get their resolution and are able to put their demons to rest. Their love grows. Raina gets the family she has been missing. Lorne regains his as well – opening his heart back to them and all that was missed while imprisoned.
Lorne and Raina’s relationship is beautiful. Their connection allowed them to truly see and hear each other – without words or touch. I can’t say it enough. I absolutely LOVE your writing. Who wouldn’t love a hot, rockin’ cowboy?!!
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
Attending a co-worker’s Halloween party dressed as a sexy fairy was the worst decision Shelby Maxwell made all week. That is until she lets her temper get the best of her in front of Dallas’s finest and ends up in the back of a police cruiser. Too bad the gorgeous jerk responsible for her bad behavior didn’t have the sense to avoid the police, himself.
When someone shoots up the party, the gorgeous jerk, Nick Kang, sprouts fur, explodes out of the police cruiser, and saves the day. Nick’s jerk streak continues as he leaves Shelby to explain what happened.
After her name is released to the press, a penitent Nick arrives to protect Shelby from the killer’s mafia associates. Close quarter guarding leads to close quarter groping and a little more intimacy than Shelby is prepared for. But it may be time to put her past behind her and accept far more than the safety Nick offers.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
So I have to admit the blurb made me giggle and that it why I asked Anya for the book. Because I figure if I giggled reading it, I would be giggling through the whole book annnnnd I was right. Also side note, If you have talked with Anya or know Anya then you might think like me…she is Shelby. Every time she said something sarcastic or let her loudmouth face talk, I heard Anya’s voice!! LOL
Shelby is so over DB’s but that seems to be her lot in life. While at a party another DB strolls up to her annnnd gets her arrested! LOL Sucks right!! Well the DB actually did her a solid by ya know, saving her life when the bad guys start shooting up the squad car she and he are in.
SO now Shelby has to deal with what happened in the car annnnd lemme tell ya A LOT more happened in the car plus she is a suspect in several police officer’s murders. Bad day gone worse right??? When she has a double date and the DB guy…ok his name is Nick, is her date…..stunned doesn’t even begin to cut it.
The banter is hilarious between these two. Nick is really draw to Shelby. She hates to admit it but she too is drawn to him. When things begin to happen all around them, Nick had to involve his Alpha and other pack members to help his woman……..but will she be his woman???? Is she his woman? Can he get her to allow him to claim her with a bite and all????
The couple both need to stop and talk about what is happened because a miscommunication between them causes some difficulties in a possible future together.
I really am not sure whose book I want next more…do I want fun loving Matty or extra broody Kreigh?? Me thinks Kreigh!!!
Anya writes stories with romantic slants. Sometimes they’re extra naughty and sometimes they’re sickeningly sweet.
Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.
To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.
Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret. I am a paranormal whore. I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me. So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly. Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read. With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!! Like WTF!! It blew me outta the damn water. I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning. I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read. FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!! Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!
I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created. I loved her mythology. I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him. Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!! Theo is thrust into this NEW world. She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open. When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be. Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her. They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.
The story was so wonderfully written. I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!! Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling. I thought the flow of the story was amazing. You were always wondering what would happen next. I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing. When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger. The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!
I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!! #TeamNovus #TeamLore #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes
