From the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club and Silver Valley series comes an anthology of extras and never-before-released material, including a new short story featuring fan favorites Horse and Marie.

Charming Bastard: A Novella
I first met Riley Boone when I was four years old. We moved to Callup, Idaho after my dad blew out his back and had to go on disability. Boonie’s family lived next to ours. Every afternoon he’d swagger off the school bus after kindergarten like a conquering king. For the first week he ignored me, until I impressed him by climbing nearly thirty feet up in the tree behind his trailer. They had to call the fire department to get me down, but it was worth it to see the respect in his five-year-old eyes. He gave me a worm in honor of my accomplishment. I fell in love. The next day he made me eat the worm and our relationship has been complicated ever since.

(Until now, this novella has been exclusively available in the paperback edition of Silver Bastard.)

Sticky Sweet: A Short Story
Horse and Marie met for the first time in Reaper’s Property. Now experience this moment through his eyes. (Originally available on the author’s website.)

NEW Skunked: A Short Story
Marie has some BIG news to share with Horse—news that will change both their lives forever….

NEW Sugar and Spice: A Short Story
A prequel to Reaper’s Fall, this story features Painter and Melanie’s first meeting.

PLUS: Becca’s Huckleberry Pie recipe, Marie’s Bread recipe and Emergency Skunk Cleaning recipe.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I was purchased this audio book.

I was doing a reread of this series on audio and realized I hadn’t read it.  When I saw the characters are Boone and Darcy plus Marie and Horse…SOLD!!!

If you are a fan of the series, you know how in LOVE Darcy and Boone are so hearing their beginning was great.  TBH I would have loved a full story.  What we got was wonderful and heartbreaking but this greedy sweet butt wanted more.

Now as a full fledge member of #TeamHorse of course I had to read this POV from the first time he saw Marie annnnd their baby news.  These 2 short stories were the icing on my cake.  To see Horse feeling Marie so hard in the POV and not jut for a quickie but as a “his woman” vibe was delicious.  Such a great read.

#Review #AudioBook – Mother Knows Best: A Novel of Suspense by Kira Peikoff

One of POPSUGAR’s Top 15 Medical Thrillers
One of REAL SIMPLE’s 35 Chilling Psychological Thrillers

A mother’s worst nightmare, a chance at redemption, and a deadly secret that haunts a family across the generations—“the psychological thriller everyone will be talking about” (Lisa Scottaline)

There’s only room for one mother in this family.

Claire Abrams’s dreams became a nightmare when she passed on a genetic mutation that killed her little boy. Now she wants a second chance to be a mother, and finds it in Robert Nash, a maverick fertility doctor who works under the radar with Jillian Hendricks, a cunning young scientist bent on making her mark–and seducing her boss.

Claire, Robert, and Jillian work together to create the world’s first baby with three genetic parents–an unprecedented feat that could eliminate inherited disease. But when word of their illegal experiment leaks to the wrong person, Robert escapes into hiding with the now-pregnant Claire, leaving Jillian to serve out a prison sentence that destroys her future.

Ten years later, a spunky girl named Abigail begins to understand that all is not right with the reclusive man and woman she knows as her parents. But the family’s problems are only beginning. Jillian, hardened by a decade of jealousy and loss, has returned–and nothing will stop her from reuniting with the man and daughter who should have been hers.

Past, present, and future converge in this mesmerizing psychological thriller from critically acclaimed author Kira Peikoff.

Um…this book. Wow. What the heck did I just listen to??

So I went in completely blind, which I highly reccomend doing if you can and what a ride it was. I had absolutely NO idea what was going on. I was left feeling confused at times, frustrated and stressed out but man, those were amazing feelings to have while listening to this book.

So Kira Peikoff is a brand new to me author and this will definitely not be my last book of hers that I read/listen to. I enjoyed how detailed this book was. There are things in it that I’m left wondering if they can actually happen or not but I’m no doctor or scientist, so I’ll leave that up to the professionals.

Claire and Ethan have been trying for a baby for a while. They had a son, who unfortunately had a medical condition that ended up taking his life. They decided to try for a second baby but that hadn’t happened yet and they weren’t getting any younger. So a woman desperate to have that baby, would almost do anything to have one. Trust me, from someone who knows how that feels, I’ve been tempted to do some crazy things to have a kid of my own. But that’s a story for another day over lots of alcohol.

Claire ends up going to this fertility doctor and it all becomes crazy from there.

A woman desperate to have another baby.

A scientist desperate to make her way in a world that for the most part, is run by men.

A man who thinks this fertility doctor’s ways are unethical.

And more.

Wow. Just wow. I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this book. I was left yelling at my phone, demanding to know what was going on and I was trying to urge the narrators on to talk faster. I needed to know!

The book is written in 3 different POVs (point of views) and I enjoyed them all but the one, actually got on my nerves part way through the book. If you listen to the audio book of this, you’ll understand why.

Thank you, Kira, for an amazing story and for making me feel things as a reader that doesn’t normally happen.

Oh and if you like a little romance with your suspense, this book has that too.

#WOTR22 #attendingauthor #spotlight – Molly McLain

Molly McLain

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Molly McLain. I’m from Wisconsin, am married, and a mom to three kiddos. I write steamy small town romance with blue collar heroes and spunky heroines.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

They’re all hard! The first book has to be just right to grab readers’ attention. Then the next books have to be similar, but different, too. Personally, I think I like first books better, because they set the premise for a new world and everything is fresh and new, but it’s also really fun to write cameos of previous in characters in subsequent books, too!

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Don’t compare your author journey to others. Set goals that work for you and measure your success by those accomplishments, not what you see other authors doing.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

I spend about two hours a day writing romance. I also write for my day job, too, so some days it’s really hard to spend any more time in front of my laptop.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

This is like asking a mom to choose her favorite child! They’re all special for different reasons.

#audio #reread #MC – Devil’s Game, Reapers MC book 3 by JoAnna Wylde, narration by Tatiana Sokolov and Todd Haberkorn

Devil's Game: Reapers Motorcycle Club, Book 3

Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies-the Reapers-using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger-a man who isn’t afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn’t afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.


Review by Twinsie Angie

Audio Review

I purchased this audio book.

I loved the voices Tatiana and Todd gave to the characters.  They made the characters come to life for me when I was listening. 

Original book Review May 2014

I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

WOW and YUM!! This book totally blew me away. I mean I was sooo curious about Em and Hunter/Liam in Ruger’s book. I was THRILLED to see everything happened during the kidnapping and beyond PLUS see Hunter “watching” Em for his club in their book.

Poor Em is the Clubs “Little Girl” and no one will even APPROACH her for date. Painter strings her along but is to worried about club pres Picnic to follow his desire….DB!! SOOOO Em meets Liam on line and strikes out a friendship with him only to find out he is in a rival MC ANND not just any rival but THE rival. Now Hunter is trying to make peace between the clubs but kidnapping Em isn’t a great plan. The two share ALOT during the kidnapping but they realize its not meant for them……Romeo and Juliet kinda thing.

Well Em’s sister decides to take matters into her hands and starts communication between the two love sick kids. My fav line is when Hunter says ” I let you go to have your space but you came back Em and I will not let you go.”….DREAMY ALPHA SIGH!!!

Now do the clubs really like this Romeo and Juliet dynamic …ahhhh…no but they are willing to accept it for the member they love. They are going to make it work for their benefit so to speak. So while the MC’s are TRYING to keep the peace someone is causing drama between the clubs which causes trouble with Em and Hunter…..dramatic sad sigh………can’t everyone just love one another????

My favorite scene was Hunter and Picnic duking it out over Em. I dont want to give anything away but the RESPECT that they BOTH get for each other after is amazing!! I can’t wait for more from this series.

#Review #AudioBook – One Little Mistake: A Novella by Lucinda Berry (An Audible Original)

From the best-selling author of The Secrets of Us and The Best of Friends comes a novella of deceit, desperation, and how one little mistake can unravel a life.
When overwhelmed stay-at-home mom Alexis finds herself at odds with her husband after she’s charged with a DUI, she is given one chance to get her family back: complete AA and admit her faults. The problem is, she’s never had a drinking problem and has no idea what caused the blackout that led to her arrest. Still, she’s committed to working through the program, if that’s what it takes to be reunited with her two young children. But when she connects with a new friend, Farrah – a confident, successful powerhouse of a woman Alexis can’t help but idolize – she’s empowered to take a closer look at her husband’s role in her downfall. What she finds shocks her to her core, quickly spiraling into something more sinister than she ever imagined. 

I really liked this novella. I don’t usually listen to audio books but my reading has been limited lately, so thought I’d give it a shot. And what better way to do that then by listening to one of my favourite authors? AND it’s an audible original too, which is even cooler.

Alexis is having a hard time of it. She has a young daughter and just gave birth to a son a few months ago. Her husband is no help at all. Which let me tell you, was highly infuriating to read.

Unfortunately for Alexis, she decides to have a glass of wine one day, a little earlier than normal for her, and the next thing she knows, she’s waking up in the drunk tank. Buuut after only having a couple glasses, maybe only 2, she doesn’t remember anything at all. Even though she’s a light weight when it comes to alcohol, she knows that there is no way that she could have blacked out.

The one twist in this book wasn’t overly surprising but the 2nd one, yeah, I couldn’t predict it at all.

It just shows that there are a lot of people out there who take advantage when someone is down on their luck. And poor Alexis fell victim to it.

The book, although short, was a fun afternoon listen. It was entertaining and I can’t wait for more.

Also, as with most novellas, I do wish this one was longer but that’s just me.

This is my first audiobook review and I really liked the narrator. She did a fantastic job and coming from someone who is only starting to get into audiobooks, she held my interest and I wasn’t bored.

#Audio #MC #reread – Reapers Legacy, Reapers MC Book 2 by Joanna Wylde, Narration by Tatiana Sokolov and Todd Haberkorn

Reaper's Legacy: Reaper's MC, Book 2

Reaper’s Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde’s Reapers Motorcycle Club series.

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I read this book in 2013 and just picked up the audio to do a reread. I forgotten how much I loved this group of guys and their Old Ladies. Tatiana Sokolov and Todd Haberkorn did a fabulous job bringing life to these characters and reminding of the story of Ruger and Sophie.

Original review written 2013

I received an autographed copy from the author so I am giving an honest review.

I fell in LOVE with Marie and Horse in the first book. I mean Alpha hottie on a bike with a whole MC of brothers to explore and I was sold on the series. I was really excited to read Ruger’s book when the blurb was sent out. I mean LOVE TRIANGLE and who doesnt love those??

SO poor poor Sophie gets preggo by loser Zach (Ruger’s brother) and ditches everyone to raise her son someplace else…we just dont know why? Anyway Ruger is the Man-Slut of the century and he is bending over backwards for Sophie but we dont know why? Is it just for his nephew or more??? Is Sophie lusting over Ruger for real or just because he is a guy who doesn’t let her down?

The two are forced to co-habitate together and things between them get blurry very very very very quick. Ruger thinks if he nails her he will be able to move on. Sophie knows if she sleeps with him she will be ruined. The two dance around and then BOOM they finally give in. BUT Ruger refused monogomy soooo again Sophie leaves. She even moves out but Ruger insists they are still together. She says ‘Monogomy?” annnnd he says no…I so wanted to punch him in the face. So Sophie again says “over”…the two need to just sit and talk it out already!!

Anyway, Sophie gets friendly with club old ladies and goes out with Em to meet a guy. The two are kidnapped. Ruger goes outta his mind and realized she is it for him. When they find the girls he promised monogomy buut it is way way way to late……can they get together? Can they find some common ground???

The epilogue was awesome for sure and I can’t wait to read Em’s book as soon as i finish this review!!

#WOTR22 #attendingauthor #spotlight – Renee George

Renee George

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Renee George, USA Today Bestselling author of cozy paranormal mysteries, paranormal women’s fiction mysteries, and paranormal romance/ mysteries.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

They are all hard. LOL.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I am a pantser who writes mysteries, so I set up the suspects and the crime, then I work through it, investigating along with my heroine. I like to put in a lot of red herrings and make things twisty at the end, but usually, about the time that reader knows who-done-it in the story is about the same time that I knew when I was writing it.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Writing like any creative pursuit is one of those jobs you have to love enough to do it even when you hate it. The best tip I can give an aspiring writer is don’t compare the way you approach writing to the way other authors approach writing. Every one is different. Your process is your process. Comparing yourself to other writers is a great way to stay frustrated all the time. Honestly, it’s just one word after another until “The End,” however you get there.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

Writing is more than just getting the words down. It involves a lot of planning and thinking, so I count that as writing time. Which means, all the waking hours in the day are typically spent writing. Hah!

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Currently, Nora Black from my Nora Black Midlife Psychic Mysteries is my favorite. She’s my age, has been through some of the things that I have been through, and she still kicks butt. I love having a heroine who represents a woman over 50 who is still young enough to live her life. I mean, I’m not dead, yet. Right?

If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?

In the Nora Black series, I’d have Kate Blanchett playing my heroine. She’s over 50 and still got it. Henry Cavill would play Ezra. Sandra Bullock would play her best friend Gilly.

What is your definition of success?

I write books and I get paid for them. It was always my dream, and that dream has come true. That’s success.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Ahh im so glad Lee and Allison’s story was continued i loved their connection in rumors goin round. Allison and Lee went to high school together and always had that crush on each other but never took it anywhere. One-night at the local bar they decided why not and give into their feelings but Lee was a one night stand kinda guy didnt want to catch feelings and Allison was just fine with that until she starts actually catching feelings in their friends with benefits situation. Will she be able to keep her feelings to herself without her heart getting hurt or is this bachelor one that never gets off the market.

Twinsie Tenise’s Top 5 from July-December #MMRomance #BDSM #NewAdult #PsychologicalThrillers

Twinsie Tenise’s Top 5 

Wow! I read so many amazing books in 2021. Now comes the hard part. Picking a top 5 from everything I’ve read since July. As any reader knows, narrowing down your top favorites is a rather difficult task. 
These 5 stood out to me. They all had me engaged from start to finish. They are all books that I have and will continue to recommend to others. In no particular order, I give you my Top 5 reads from July-December 2021.

Both men had pretty much given up on finding their forever, but fate was just waiting for the right time.
Charlie moves to small-town Briarton with plans to live his quiet life as a writer. He’s resigned himself to being alone and isn’t expecting anything different from his new home. But a coffee mix-up brings him face-to-face with a man Charlie had decided didn’t really exist.
Nixon is grateful for a new job in a new town. He’s ready to leave the past in the past and settle down. He’s not actively looking for a relationship—that’s never worked out for him before—but he can’t deny the instant connection he has with his newest patient’s nephew.
Is it too late for Charlie and Nix to find their happily ever after? Or will they accept fate’s gift and allow themselves a love they thought they’d never find?
**Perfect Timing is a steamy, M/M romance with an introverted, demisexual writer and a big, soft teddy bear of a nurse trying to navigate a love they’ve always dreamed of but most definitely weren’t expecting.**

Warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. If you deal with triggers, please read this book with caution.
Material consists of adult content and BDSM.

I was sent away for protection.
Pulled from a world and forced into another, I lost myself on the way.
No emotion. Only walls to hide feelings that were now masked behind a barrier.
Matteo Santos opened my eyes. He helped me see through the darkness that consumed my soul. He breathed life into my lungs, gripping my heart until it beat again.
With a darkness of his own, it haunted him, turning him into a beautiful Master of seduction and pain.
Through trust and love, we would battle our pasts together.
Before they took control…completely.

“Not everything is as it seems.” ~ Beautiful Pain

She needed peace, not murder. He wanted love but found danger. Will a talented pair of investigators live to see their romance bloom?

Forensic photographer Faith Day can’t forget her tortured past. And returning to her hometown to help care for her nephew means rebuilding all she’s lost. But her brave plans shatter when her best friend is suspected of her own husband’s brutal slaying…

FBI Special Agent Luke Justice never rests until the culprits are caught. But when a violent case touches the life of the woman he loves, he can’t help but make it personal. And with a second investigation into a vicious prison gang diverting all his attention, he fears he’ll struggle to protect her from the killer’s disturbing taunts.

Discovering an ominous photo of herself at the crime scene, Faith is terrified the murderer is someone she knows. And when Luke uncovers a sinister connection to Faith, he suspects they’re all being lured into a lethal trap.

Can Luke and Faith stop the slaughter before they join the body count?

Secret is in the Bones is the beguiling third tale in the Paynes Creek Thriller romantic suspense series. If you like deadly twists, devious psychopaths, and against-all-odds chemistry, then you’ll adore Heather Sunseri’s fast-paced story.

Buy Secret is in the Bones to free the innocent today!

Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim’s parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself.

With only two short months separating her from the future she’s built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah’s plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan.

Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface.

She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they’re both drawn to sad things. Which means they’re drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn’t realize is that a rip current is coming, and it’s about to drag her heart out to sea.

Seeing isn’t always believing.
Trapped by her past trauma, Macy McCall worked with a variety of therapists and medications- most yielding minimal results. Her newest doctor, Daniel Yates, helps bring forth her biggest breakthroughs and she believes she can see the light at the end of a very dark and scary tunnel. With a boyfriend and a good job, she enjoys her blooming independence.
Then she sees her.
The woman that looks exactly like her.
This mirror image plagues her life in a way that she would never have expected. And when it all unravels, she won’t be the only one left wondering what is real and what is imagined.

Trigger Warning: This book deals with the topic of mental illness & trauma with mentions of abuse and self-harm/suicide.

Reviews by Twinsie Tenise

Perfect Timing by: A.D. Ellis

Charlie moves to Briarton to write. He has deadlines to meet and the small town is the perfect place for peace and quiet. Charlie is single and not looking to mingle. He is caring for his elderly uncle and writing and is content with that.

Nixon just bought a house in Briarton. He is working as a nurse for the local Dr’s office. Just like Charlie, he’s not exactly looking for a relationship.

You know the saying- The One for you will show up when you least expect it?
Well let’s just say both of these men are blindsided by the instant connection they feel for one another and they aren’t sure how to deal with this revelation.

I read the first book in this series, thinking it was a standalone. I will just say I’m so happy it wasn’t. I love the little town of Briarton and these 2 men were great additions. And don’t even get me started on Charlie’s Uncle Otto. That man and his meddling added the perfect amount of humor to the story.

Beautiful Pain by: JM Walker

Normally, when reading a book from an Authors backlist, I would be mad at myself for not reading said book sooner. Not this time. I’m not going to feel bad, because experiencing this book for the first time is something special. I’m just glad to experience it now. Better late than never.
It took me about a week to read Beautiful Pain. It did not take so long because I wasn’t into the book– actually its the complete opposite– I wanted to take my time with this one. Slowly savoring all of the delicious words. Trying to make the book last just a little bit longer because I wasn’t ready to let them go.
I’m so in love with this book, the plot, the characters. I just wanted to reach into the book and squeeze both of the main characters and be there for them to vent their problems. To tell them that everything will be alright. Matteo and Mae both had lots of deep seated issues. Two severely broken people who needed one another to breathe. To live. To heal. My heart is so full of love for this book. I can honestly say, without a doubt, it is THE BEST book I’ve read this year and will be hard for any book to top it.

Secret in the Bones (Paynes Creek book 3) by: Heather Sunsuri

Bad things are happening in Paynes Creek and half the town seems to be blaming one person. But things aren’t always as they seem and they are pointing fingers in the wrong direction.

Luke has felt something for Faith since the first time he laid eyes on her. But will those feelings ever be reciprocated?

Faith left town a year ago but something horrible has brought her back to Paynes Creek and to Luke. Will Faith give Luke a chance this time? Or will she leave and never look back?

Just like with all of the other books in this series, the author kept me guessing. Secret is in the Bones was a fast paced, page turner that had me engaged from the very first page. It is a love story wrapped in a murder mystery and I loved every minute of it. This is book 3 in the series and it’s very important you start with book 1, Death is in the Details, or you will not understand what is going on in this book.

Heart Bones by: Colleen Hoover

A story about true love and soul mates that is both beautiful and ugly. I really felt like I connected with Beyah. I felt her pain.


From a young age, Beyah refuses to become a victim of circumstance. She is only 19 years old and brave af! I loved everything about her character.

Samson was quite the conundrum. Just when I thought I had him figured out. BAM! Another layer.
I could not get enough of the 2 of them together. They may be opposites on the surface but Beyah and Samson’s attraction was immediate and only intensified as the days of summer passed. A summer both of them wish would never end. The end of summer means goodbye and neither of them are quite ready to utter that word.

I loved every single page of this book. I wanted to read fast, yet I never wanted the book to end. It was absolutely flipping phenomenal!

I had to take a second to collect my thoughts after finishing Neurosis before trying to compose a review. I have been on a major psychological thriller kick lately so when I was given a copy of this book, I started it immediately and finished it quickly.  And let me tell you– it’s definitely in my top 3 for psychological thrillers and I’ve read a TON of them lately.
