#WOTR22 #TwinsieForTheDayPam – My Road Trip Romance by Jennifer Daniels

Author, Cassidy Nixon hides in her stories. It’s much easier than feeling anything real for anyone other than her family.

Interested in attending the Harvest Pick and Read writer’s convention, Cassidy, her brother Darren, and his wife Sam set out on the long drive to the event.

The first stop starts off with a bang, when Cassidy runs headfirst into a handsome stranger. And for the first time in a long while, Cassidy is taken with this hardheaded stranger that she will never see again. Or will she?

She runs into this handsome man a second time and thinks its just coincidence.

When he shows up at the same event in the room next door, Cassidy thinks he’s a stalker. But he convinces her he isn’t.

All Cassidy had to worry about was the safety of her raccoons while she was gone.

Now will she have to worry about her heart?

4 **** Jennifer Daniels

Such a cute story. I would have liked a bit more details, but I really enjoyed this short story. Cassidy is an author on a road trip to a book event. She is with her brother and SIL. They keep running into Jack on the way. It is a very amusing tale. I really loved the raccoons. Since I go to several book events a year, I was intrigued by this book. I may be watching others to look for more romance now…. Pam James

#WOTR22 #TwinsieforthedayJulia #WOTRMommaJulia #Review – Jordan’s Trials by Anna Hague

Jordan's Trials (Love Strictly Tested Book 3) by [Anna Hague]

A grisly murder…a Dom with plenty to lose. My name is Jordan Caldera, and that’s me, the Dom with everything to lose. Yes, I hated the woman who threatened to expose the passionate BDSM lifestyle I share with my wife, Angel. But contrary to what the evidence implies, I didn’t kill her and my alibi is solid. Unfortunately, I was indulging a few powerful clients, administering to their dark desires, and they would sooner see me imprisoned than to publicly reveal their misunderstood cravings. My choices are simple-put my life and high-profile career at risk by exposing the truth or go to jail for a crime I didn’t commit.

Oh what a way to end this series! Jordan has secrets he’s keeping from his Angel. But he’s doing it out of misguided love. When the news breaks that the wanna be journalist, is not only writing their story but plans to out them, is murdered, Jordan has reason to worry. Will he and Angel be torn a part? Luckily Jordan finds support in unlikely places, from unlikely people. But can’t count on the people he was protecting. The entire series is spectacular, the final story ties it all together perfectly!

For 25 years, I’ve worked as a sports writer. I decided now was the time to pursue romance fiction as an author. I found a great group of RWA author friends who have helped me tremendously.
I get great support from my husband, and although they don’t know it, my three parrots and dog give me a huge boost everyday.

They’ve known each other forever, and there seems to have always been a spark, which both deny. But Hyacinth has found out there will be a Prince in attendance at a Ball she’s being made to attend, and has decided she will be a Princess! Rhys works for the government and is assigned to follow the Prince. But Hyacinth and Rhys seem to keep crossing paths, and with each encounter, some to realize that they don’t actually hate each other. When the Prince’s nefarious plans are discovered, will Rhys save the day? I found this to be a quick, witty and endearing story!

Steel Mc: Montana Charter Book 8 is a sign of the current times. It’s heartbreaking and redeeming. Sarah “Topaz” Cardell moved to the Montana Chapter 10 years ago as one of the HOEZ. She is a Manager of the Bar/Restaurant and sometimes stripper. She sleeps with whatever man wants her, but she’s sunk to new lows and now wants something different for her life. But she can never go home again. Dallas “Onyx”King an ex-cop who was injured, moved to Montana with his best friend, where he found acceptance and welcome, which he never expected as a Black Man. Since he arrived Topaz has avoided him, and when she couldn’t, she was rude and nasty to him. After a year of this Onyx finally pulled her outside to have it out, where they were abducted. Onyx was beaten and Topaz was drugged, coming to in a cabin. Neither knowing why they were there, until their captors returned. Seems they were from a white supremacist group. Even the children on the ranch weren’t safe. But when things escalated for Onyx, Topaz shuts down. What Onyx perceived as prejudice, was so much more. These two had to work their way through a lot of doubts and events. I really, really loved this story!

Tanner-
She was beautiful.
Loved.
Strong.
After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.
Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.
She was warm where I was frigid.
She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.
I did things to survive.
I battled the evils of the world to live.
I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.
As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.
Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.
~
-Bee-
He was lonely.
Intense.
Brave.
Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.
There was something about him that I craved.
His touch. His words. His need to survive.
But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.
He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.
I refused to let him go.
After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.
He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.
I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.
Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.
My family.

While the story is a stand alone, I loved how it tied up loose ends for another couple, Tanner had a horrible past, that he finally had someone he could trust enough to share with, no judgement, not pity. just there for him! A must read story, by a must read Author J.M Walker!

Davis has always had an interest in Lauren, but as the most difficult Sub at the club, she’s hard to pin down. They both have their play partners, but no one that is theirs. No one can claim Lauren, until she needs help. Davis will help her but on his terms, and she has to do what he tells her, or all bets are off. Pretty tall order for Hurricane Lauren who doesn’t follow rules! But she does need Davis’s protection, And in the process, they also save another. I loved this story, and would recommend the whole series that get’s you to this point!

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

Review by WOTR Momma Julia with permission from her daughter Madi.

Smoking Hot series starter for Miranda Lynn will not disappoint! Kat has been hiding with Mack and Casey’s pack for a year, she’s safe here. Helping other pack mates heal and be productive. When Leo shows up, who is going to help her. Both have their lions locked in cages, for different reasons, but still locked up, to keep them safe, hidden. Kat is in hiding from a horrible childhood, and a bad deal, from her father. Leo is protecting a brother, who is alpha of his pack, because he really had no interest. These two learn to trust each other to become true mates. I haven’t read a paranormal story in awhile, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Looking forward to the next one!

Escaping reality one book at a time has been Miranda’s motto since she learned to read. As an only child raised on a dairy farm her creative imagination brought words to life. She devoured more books growing up than her little town bookmobile could handle. It was inevitable that she would turn from reading them to writing them. This is her way to help not only herself but others escape the day to day drudge. Her books may take you on a journey through time, give you a look inside a fantasy realm, or delve into the magic of almost anything paranormal. Threading in heart stopping romance and dropping an occasional super sexy scene just to keep you on your toes.
Miranda’s stories are focused around strong female leads and sexy males who appreciate them. She strives to encourage her readers that they can have it all in real life too.
You can find her most days either subbing at the local high school or tucked away in her office working on the next story with a cup of java in her hand. She loves connecting with her readers online as well as in real life so make sure to find her on Facebook and check out where she will be signing throughout the year on her website.

Eli's Little Easter : Holidays at Rawhide Ranch Book 7 by [Dakota  Trace , Rawhide  Authors, AllyCat’s  Creations]

The youngest son of the Atheron family, Elias has been a huge disappointment to his overbearing parents, particularly his mother. He’s done everything right, including relocating to another state to head up the office in the newest addition to the family party business, but it still never seems enough. She now wants him to come home for Easter, to reunite with an old flame, which he refuses to do. This Easter he has the chance to make Little Delights, his own party planning service for Littles, into the premier party planning service for the age-play community. Derek Hawkins has hired him to plan an Easter Jamboree for his Little girl and the rest of the Littles who call the Rawhide Ranch their home.

Willem William is the past the age of playing. As the financial adviser for the Rawhide Ranch, he spends his days studying spreadsheets, trends, and making suggestions to secure the future of the Hawkins family. Nearing his golden birthday, he assumes his dream of having his own Little is just that. Which is why he never expects the boy to walk into his life under the guise of an accident-prone party planner. But once he catches a glimpse of the Little boy Eli tries to hide, he’s smitten. Now all he has to do is convince Eli that what he needs is a good old-fashioned daddy for Easter.

Publisher Note: this is a slow burn where a determined Daddy meets the shy Little meant to be his. If age play, moonlight trips to the park and spanking/discipline are not your thing, please don’t buy this book.

To the outside world Ryen Cardona is a confident, intelligent acquisitions agent for the European Arts Council, traveling between Europe’s most famous museums, collecting pieces, and planning fundraisers, but at the end of the day that life is a ruse. Ryen Cardona is a witch, quite possibly the most powerful witch the world has seen, but most people don’t even know that witches, real witches, with powers, exist. But Ryen isn’t just any witch.

Cash dreams of owning night clubs around the world to where not only the unknowing human patrons flock, but also where his vampire clientele can drink discreetly and safely.
Fate interferes with the plans they have for their lives when Cash and Ryen’s paths cross. Both of their lives are turned upside down as beauty and chaos unfold

Goodreads

Review by Polly

Just a little note – this book does end in a cliffhanger, so it’s a good thing book two is out!

The genre of Fantasy is not my usual go-to and wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book. Holy cow was I in for a ride! The story of Ryen Cardona (a witch) and Cash Di Marco (a vampire) had me sitting on the edge of my seat!

I absolutely love Ryen and Cash and the fact that fate has decided that these two characters need to be soul mates. But, can they?

Ryen Cardona is a witch and just not a witch, she is the Maiden of the Universal Coven and she hates vampires! A relationship is not something that is on her radar at the moment. She has a busy schedule being an acquisitions agent by day, most powerful witch by night!

Cash Di Marco is a night club mogul/playboy trying not get caught up in his family fortune and duties. Witches are not really his thing…except to maybe grab a “bite” from.

The book is packed with intrigue and romance, witches and vampires! Love, love, love the push and pull between Ryen and Cash! Their story is full of passion and pain, love and hate!

And the ending! Please….you cannot leave us hanging like that! Good thing book two is out or I would be in a total book hangover!

Growing up in rural Central Iowa, where the closest neighbor was at least 1/2 a mile down the gravel road and her brothers being 7 & 10 years older, gave Kristine plenty of opportunities to use and hone her imagination. From acting out stories with her Barbies, to pretending she was being held captive and guarded by vicious dogs (aka puppies her dad raised), she found ways to entertain herself.
Now she is living in the sprawling metropolis of Cedar Rapids, spending her days teaching high school Spanish and her nights being a wife and mother to a son and furry children. Somewhere she finds a little time here and there to write. Much to her husband’s irritation, her imagination still steals her away to daydreaming about her characters and future stories.
Kristine LOVES reading. She has been reading supernatural/paranormal genres since second grade. Her friends force her to read other genres from time to time, but she prefers a little darkness in her stories. Some of her favorite authors include L.J. Smith, Jeaniene Frost & I.T. Lucas.
