#CoverReveal #Historical #MM – Anthony, Earl of Crofton by Rebecca Cohen

A tale set in Stuart England, where the king’s life depends on his most loyal of subjects.

Anthony Redbourn, Earl of Crofton, delights in his reputation as a charming rogue. Life is never quiet at the court of King James I, especially with his good friend and secret lover, Sebastian Hewel, by his side. As an actor with the celebrated King’s Men, Sebastian has his own admirers, but neither man has eyes for anyone else.
When a plot against His Majesty is uncovered it threatens Anthony and Sebastian’s charmed lives, and they are dragged into the political intrigue and the race to save the king from danger. Fear that a traitor is linked to the King’s Men leaves Sebastian and Anthony with no choice but to stage a very public dissolution of their friendship, so Anthony can be free to be the patron of a new rising actor, and Sebastian can be the prodigy of another noble.
It is a dangerous game they are playing to expose the plotters and still find a way to meet in secret, as Anthony is adamant that they will not sacrifice the love they have fought so hard to win. They will do whatever it takes to protect the king’s life, and their commitment to each other.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Insure This by Shyla Colt

 

Insure This

 

Overworked, unappreciated, and disenchanted, insurance agent Pepper Miller is stuck in a rut. When her manager offers her a challenging claim, an alien abduction case she needs to disprove in order to gain her dream job—complete with an office and a management title—she’s eager to rise to the occasion. Booking her trip to the tiny, southern town, she expects an easy win. What she finds is anything but that.
Lost time, handsome book shop owners, and the car rental from hell push her to reexamine her life. Alien abduction victim Orson Bussey is everything she could have wanted in a man. Too bad he’s off limits. As the universe itself pushes them together in a number of hilarious and cringe-worthy events, she’s forced to decide what’s truly important in life.

 

Goodreads

 

Fun, sassy, and quick read! Pepper is an insurance adjuster and she has just been told she needs to go to investigate an alien abduction claim. What the hell?! She thinks this is a hoax and believes she will be able to sweep this under the rug and get back home to a promotion. What she doesn’t expect is to find that her mark is the handsome bookstore owner, Orson. She is befriended by his grandfather, who has been abducted before too. She is invited to a meeting to discuss other “strange” happenings that could be alien related. As she spends more time in this small town and continues to run into Orson she can’t deny the pull between the two. This is such a funky, quick and quirky read that kept me smiling throughout the entire story. This is one that will keep you shaking your head with a wonderful HEA! Cute and Fun!!!

#NewRelease, #Review, Breaking Without You (Fractured Connections Book 1) by Carrie Ann Ryan



From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

I love starting a new series, especially one by a favorite author. Why you ask, because it’s like coming into a new group of friends, but of people that you already know but now you get to really know them and come to love them.

In Breaking Without You we have Violet Knight and we meet Cameron Connolly.  Violet we have briefly met before as she is Mace’s sister from Fallen Ink: Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs Book 1.

This story is a heartbreaker for sure, what Violet and her tribe are going through is one of the toughest things a group of friends can go through.  Suicide is something that is very prevalent in the world today and when it happens it is awful and when it is someone that is close to you it’s even more devastating.

That is what brings Violet and Cameron into each other’s life’s…….. again.

See not only is this a love story, it’s a second chance love story and those are always good.

The chemistry between them is off the charts, but that was never the problem for them when they were together in college.  No the problem was when Cameron just left without a word or reason.

I love that Ryan always gives us true life in her stories.  From how Violet and her friends are coping with their grief, to Cameron and his brothers trying to come together again after years apart, to the why of Cameron leaving.  All of it is vey real life things that could happen to and does happen to every day people.  

Also, what I love about her writing is that if you haven’t read the series that a new series has spun off of it doesn’t matter, you won’t be lost because you can read them as stand alones. A warning though, you won’t want too if you are anything think me you gotta know everything and everyone so like Pokèmon you gotta get them all. Lol

I can’t wait to see more of this series, it’s gonna be a good one.

Excerpt

Jealousy is a relatively new emotion for me, filling my heart with a million sharp shards of glass. It scratches me raw so easily, until my heart was torn and bleeding. Feeling it for the first time, find myself inferior in a whole new way, I sob into my pillows helplessly.
Dryas comes into the bedroom a while later on quiet feet. I am glad he didn’t see the fit of tears that chased me out of the kitchen. Still, my eyes are red and puffy, my nose still stuffed up. As he approaches the bed, I can’t help but wonder if he compares me to her.
That thought, dark and vicious, seems to gnaw at my soul. 
When he sits down beside me, I release a long-suffering sigh. Looking up at him, I’m embarrassed to even be having these emotions, yet incapable of feeling differently. He pins me with that chartreuse gaze, those dark brows drawn low.
“I am sorry,” he begins, surprising me. “I should have told you about Aurelia from the start.”
I push myself upright, sniffling. “I mean, I’m not your girlfriend. This isn’t a relationship we are in, technically. You don’t owe me any explanations.”
 He looks a little surprised. “No? What would you call it, then?”
My face heats up, my cheeks growing as red as cherries. I hesitate. “I… I don’t know. We never talked about it. It just sort of… happened. One time turned into two, two times to four…”
I splay my hand on the comforter, picking at a loose thread. Dryas sighs and shifts closer to me.
“Do I mean nothing to you, then?”
He takes my hand, pulling it against his torso. I glance up at him, my heart racing at his words. 
“No. Of course not,” I reply, my words soft.
His lips lift in the gentlest smile. He’s devastatingly handsome in that moment, looking down at me with his brilliant yellow-green eyes.“Good. You mean something to me, too.”
He leans across and drops the perfect kiss against my bee-stung lips, gentle but firm, tender yet passionate. I open my mouth to him, my fingers clutching at the sweatshirt covering his chest. God, how I love this man.

#NewRelease #MM – Wrong Way Home – Criminal Delights: Taken by K.A. Merikan

Wrong Way Home - Criminal Delights: Taken

— One wrong turn. One right man. —

Colin. Rule-follower. Future doctor. Witness to murder. Captive.
Taron. Survivalist. Mute. Murderer. Captor.

Like every other weekend, Colin is on his way home from university, but he’s taunted by the notion that he never takes risks in life and always follows the beaten path. On impulse, he decides to take a different route. Just this one time. What he doesn’t realize is that it’s the last time he has a choice.

He ends up taking a detour into the darkest pit of horror, abducted by a silent, imposing man with a blood-stained axe. But what seems like his worst nightmare might just prove to be a path to the kind of freedom Colin never knew existed.

Taron has lived alone for years. His land, his rules. He’d given up on company long ago. After all, attachment is a liability. He deals with his problems on his own, but the night he needs to dispose of an enemy, he ends up with a witness to his crime.

The last thing Taron needs is a nuisance of a captive. Colin doesn’t deserve death for setting foot on Taron’s land, but keeping him isn’t optimal either. It’s only when he finds out the city boy is gay that an altogether different option arises. One that isn’t right, yet tempts him every time Colin’s pretty eyes glare at him from the cage.

*

“When Taron looped the heavy metal collar around the slender neck and closed the padlock, his body throbbed with the excitement of knowing he owned this boy.
Was it wrong? Yes, yes it was.
Was it so, so good? Definitely.”

*

#Review – Bless His Cursed Soul (The Righteous #2) by Meg Collett

Bless His Cursed Soul (The Righteous, #2)

 

Dale Rose-Jinks has a pill problem, and the man trapped in her mirror isn’t helping.

When she learns the mirror man is real, her quest to free him from his prison lands her dead center in a fight between a monster and her best friend, whose actions threaten the broken, beautiful man Dale is falling in love with.

The fallout from their fight with the Skinned Man has left Loey and Jeronimo clutching at the Seam’s tatters. Loey is trapped in the middle of a nightmare where she can trust no one, not even her best friend or the man she could love.

Dale and Loey must uncover the truth about what happened one night in 1956, when an innocent woman was murdered and an explosion blasted two brothers into separate worlds. As they get closer to uncovering the Skinned Man’s identity, the threads of their world and friendship begin to fray.
And when a flesh and blood monster from their past returns, the tatters in their very souls could rip beyond repair.

 

Goodreads

 

Thrilling and twisted sequel in the Righteous series!

 

“I’ll be fine.” Those three last words had become a mantra, if matras were lies people told themselves to feel better.

 

Everyone has those “I’ll be fine” moments but it is so true in this installment. This starts off in Dale’s point of view when she was supposed to go to rehab but instead ends up uncovering information about the “man in the mirror”. Dale is on a mission. This man she is falling in love with and now she must save him. Dale finds out that Loey is keeping him trapped in there and has to confront her best friend about same. As Dale’s and Loey’s friendship is truly tested so is the relationship between the two brothers that they are falling in love with, Barty and Jeronimo. The story continues as they try and find out who the Skinned Man is and exactly what happened to Frankie.

 

This story is full of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages because we all must know exactly what happened. Just when I thought I might have it figured out a new twist is thrown in the mix. Righteous really is full of dark secrets and crazy pasts. As the truth continues to unfold more questions need answered. The past and present are coming together and then the crazy really begins. The world building is phenomenal and will keep you immersed in the thrills.

 

“The price of having a best friend who was closer than a sister was the type of pain she could inflict. They knew all the secrets. Knew where all the bodies were buried. They knew all your weakest spots because they’d held you at your weakest. That information, turned around and pointed back at your heart — well, it could cut like a razor blade.”

 

Above is the perfect quote for Dale and Loey. This is an amazing story of friendship and betrayal. I cannot wait to find out what happens next. Keep the crazy coming in Righteous!!!

Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KY7EAG4/ref=rdr_kindle_ext_tmb

This book was down right hilarious when Leigh makes a decision that on summer break from her teaching job she was going to write a book after her favorite author kills off her beloved book boyfriend she decided to take it into her own hands and figures it can’t be that hard to write a book, so she needed to get her a writing desk small enough to fit in her tiny apartment.Seeing a local ad about a desk that is FREE Leigh jumped all over it and went straight to the address listed to pick up her new desk,but little does she know that it’s more then a desk.  But this very desk has a history of its own and will send what she believes are just stories that she made up and bring them to her real life, so when her family and friends get involved she can’t help but try to help them out,  but then things get turned upside down pretty quickly.
