She’s everything I shouldn’t want, but exactly what I crave.

She bleeds innocence the way I radiate darkness. The moment she walked into my club, she was mine. She just didn’t know it. I’ll be the one to ruin her, and she will love every second.

Innocence lost can’t be regained.

My life seems rather simple from the outside. I’m the devoted daughter to a former rodeo champion. I never wanted to follow my mother’s footsteps into the arena. My boots are firmly planted in the dirt on our family farm, but an accident changed everything.Now I spend my nights on a stage, and my days in the barn. Dancing has paid the bills for the past two years, but no one knows my secret. Or so I thought.

Amusement is the darkly sweet duel POV stalker romance you didn’t know you needed

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh my i can’t even put into word how amazing this book was. So Lucy is the sole provider for her family after her mom was in a car accident and couldn’t work so at 18 he did what she had to do she just didn’t know it would be working at a strip club, but the rule was they could look but couldn’t not touch her. She was doing whatever she could to make sure she could pay the bills to keep her family ranch. One day at the store she ran into Rafe and he was determined to get to know her to get her to be his. Little did Lucy know that he already knew way more about her then she knew and he was stalking her to make sure no one else would have her.

https://amzn.to/3C1fFFN

“Hey Frankie, we need ya.”

One phone call, five words, and I’m back in the town I swore I’d never return to.

Hill Crest Library smelled bad, and it wasn’t just the corpse in front of me causing it. The once beautiful building had fallen into disrepair over the past few years.

Belinda the new librarian was doing her best to clean it up, but a dead body wasn’t helping matters.

Dad needs help to solve the murder, so that’s what I’m here to do, then get out of town before anyone even knows I’m back

The case should be easy for an MBI agent, even a newly minted one like me, but before I can check into the hotel my three reasons for leaving, corner in the lobby.

My life just got a lot more complicated.

Homecoming Homicide is a Cozy style Slow Burn RH with an adorkable Heroine and Three not so normal Fellas thrown into the mix.

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

Life is good for MBI agent Frances Bishop, she’s an important member of the bureau. Then she got a phone call from her dad saying he needs her for a case back home, so she return home after she said she never to return. When the case gets crazy with a guys head basically exploded and magic lingering around but not able to pinpoint from where. Frances also has to worry about the 3 guys she ran from in the first place. This case goes from a normal mystery to the ultimate mystery. Sexual tension through the roof and 3 hot witches trying to keep their girl. Wow this book was amazing not gonna lie the title is what drew me in because I love a good mystery and homicide is right up my ally, I completely loved Frances and her fellas and I’m so ready for the next book.

Creeping It Real (Magical Bureau of Investigation 2) by Albany Walker 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/58825480-creeping-it-real

https://amzn.to/3mNeP9A

Do dead men tell tales?

Before the ink is dry on my last case, I get pulled onto another, and away from what could be a new beginning with the guys.

The murder of a high-profile coven leader is being kept a secret, only his inner circle knows. Problem is, they just may be the reason he ended up with a femur through his heart. Add some necromancy into the mix and things are getting down right intriguing dangerous.

On top of the case, there’s also my very tricky love life that has a little too much in common with the dead man for my liking. I just hope our story doesn’t end with a bloody, broken heart like his did.

Bones are piling up, just like suspects. We need to solve this case before the death magic can target anyone else.

Creeping it Real is the second book in the Magical Bureau of Investigation series. This is a slow burn RH or whychoose novel with adult situations.

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

Wow one again Albany hits it outta the park. Frankie was sent on a case to figure out who killed a huge coven leader and then while she was there another similar scene in a cemetery and it just goes crazy from there. Once arriving at the hotel she calls her guys to let them know where she was, and that she didn’t know when she was going to be home due to the case. When they show up at the hotel Frankie can’t believe it but also she loves that they came to her. Percy once again is the best sidekick and the star of the book lol. But with the guys there and this case getting more and more crazy will Frankie be able to focus on what she needs to and get them all back home. Which when they get home and it don’t low down more drama is waiting for them right around the corner. This book is amazing I’m so ready for the third book Albany does an amazing job and I’m obsessed with her books.

#WOTR22 #attendingauthor #Spotlight – Kate Hawthorne

Kate Hawthorne

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hi! My name is Kate and I’m your friendly neighborhood LGBT romance author. I was born and raised in California and lived there over three decades before relocating to Louisville (for my other job). We’ve (me, my husband, daughter, and dog) have been in KY for two years now, and while I miss the food and weather in CA, I love it here. Speaking of food. I love it. I’m a super food motivated person and the way to my heart is with books, wine, and good snacks.

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

I definitely think the subsequent books in a series are harder, but the first book comes with its own kinds of pressure. In the first book, you’re really tasked with setting up a world that’s interesting enough to keep readers coming back for the rest of the books ON TOP of the relationship story you’re trying to tell. But then the follow up books rely so much on the characters, you can’t really fall back on the world like you could in the first one. So, I guess they’re hard in different ways.

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

I like to keep things fresh by turning reader expectations on their heads. I think it’s a lot of fun to keep at least one character a little secretive and drop hints about him. Readers will start to form ideas and opinions about who his love interest will be or what his back story is, and then I get to write him completely differently if I want to! I think as an author it’s really important to listen to your characters and what they’re telling you, and being in tune with them and their stories keeps me on my toes, too!

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

Place value on your time. Being an author is a job, even if it’s something that you’re doing in your spare time/on the side. Your time is valuable, and you need to be responsible with it. Know what your priorities are, make schedules, and be respectful of your own time.

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

A handful of hours. Since I have another full time job (that pays much more), my time is split. I write at least an hour in the morning while I have my coffee, and then I write over lunch, and then again at the end of the day.

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

I think it would be impossible to choose. So many of my characters are important to me for different reasons. The one that is standing out to me right now is a character in my book Unfettered. His name is Heath, and I put a lot of my own history into his character development, so he has a special place in my heart, for sure.

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?

This is so hard to choose!!! If I could turn my FIRST book, His Kind of Love, into a movie I would totally cast Oscar Isaac as Gabriel and Freddy Carter as Joel.

What is your definition of success?

I think success varies widely from person to person, and it even varies for me from day to day. I don’t think all success should be financial. For me, being happy with the work I’m doing is success. Being recognized by my peers for being good at what I do is success. Touching readers lives…also success.

#WOTR21 #audiobook #MM #SeriesStarter #KU – His Kind of Love (Lonely Hearts #1) by Kate Hawthorne

His Kind of Love (Lonely Hearts #1)

Joel Reading was lonely.

Nineteen years old, estranged from his family and seemingly unable to ever get a second date, he’s surrounded himself with the things he loved most: old books and old music.

When one date got out of hand before it even began, Joel found himself displaced from a flooded apartment and on the doorstep of a handsome and older stranger, more than willing to take Joel in for the night.

Gabriel Hunter had waited years for the right man.

When a distressed Joel showed up at his door needing a place to stay, it was more perfect than Gabriel could ever have hoped for. He quickly found himself falling for the complex and beautiful boy he welcomed into his house, and started to believe in a future with the young man he adoringly called, Little Red.

Unfortunately, Gabriel was a man of many secrets, and they threatened to unravel the delicate relationship he was building with Joel.

Would Joel be able to see beyond Gabriel’s deliberate omissions and give their love a chance, or would Gabriel’s kind of love prove to be more than Joel could handle?
