Private Investigator Logan Wild is relentless in his pursuit to discover the truth for his clients. He works hard, plays even harder, and always walks away unscathed and untethered. Until he meets mysterious and sexy-as-hell Stormy, who leaves him craving more than a one-night stand.

Passion ignites, secrets are shared, and their deep connection is impossible to ignore. But in order to have a future, Logan must uncover Stormy’s dark past—and when he does, he’ll hold her fate in his hands.

Overwhelmed by the heat that simmers between them, Christopher can't complete his mission. On the contrary, he'll do anything to save Millie's life—even if it means risking his own...

A dangerous passion... 

When she learns what Christopher was hired to do, Millie is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this dangerous man's arms may be her only path to safety—but giving in to her desire may be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. With both of their lives in jeopardy, Millie and Christopher must learn to trust the real feelings they're hiding—to find the true love they're looking for...

Forever Romance Cover Reveal: Remembering Everly by J.L.Berg

Lost & Found: Book #1
 J.L. Berg
Forever E-Book
December 1, 2015

She can forgive, but can she forget?

Some days, Everly still thinks she sees him. In the food court at the mall, or in a car speeding past as the light changes. It only lasts a second, but when it happens, she slips back to a time when she was ruled-and nearly ruined-by August Kincaid. And it doesn't matter that she's moved on, that she's about to marry another man. In those moments the only thing she can do to regain control is take a deep breath and remind herself that August can't hurt her-because he's in a coma. Except that he's not anymore.

August is awake. With no memories, he sets out to solve the mystery of his lost life. He unearths a photograph of a beautiful redhead named Everly and knows instinctively that she's the key. But when he finds her, the August she describes is more monster than man.

Tortured by the thought of having hurt her, August wants only to become the man Everly deserves. As the new August emerges, Everly glimpses the person she first fell in love with. But can she trust that this August is real? When the final secret of their shared past is revealed, one of them will make a choice that changes their future forever . . .

Daring Her Love - cover

This BRADEN novella features Kat Martin, Brianna Heart's best friend from HEARTS AT PLAY (The Bradens, #6) with appearances from the hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Bradens you know and love.


Kat Martin knows what she wants in a man—someone stable and adoring, definitely not the type of guy who sleeps around. After all, Kat rarely does the wrong thing—until she meets seductively enticing Eric James, and suddenly wrong has never felt so right.

When it comes to his career, race-car driver Eric James is intense, obsessive, and passionate, but when it comes to sex, there’s only one kind—daring, unbridled, and no-strings-attached.

One stormy night, a delayed flight and the dangerous allure of the unknown leads Kat to throw caution to the wind, and she indulges in a rendezvous that she vows to immediately forget—but the secret tryst stirs something possessive in Eric, and forgetting is not an option.

Audiobook: True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson

As I have been cleaning a few areas of my house, I have decided I would listen to a book instead of music. I decided to listen to Rachel Gibson's True Love and Other Disasters. So, lets meet the characters.

We have Faith Duffy, who went from stripper to bunny (Playboy) to trophy wife to widow. Which is a lot of changes to go through in her life after all she's only 30 years old. However, most people would assume she's a gold digger, I did. There is more to Faith than the bombshell beauty who capture the attention of an 80 year old man. She did care for Virgil. When she found out that she had inherited a hockey team, she couldn't believe it. She planned to sell the team to Virgil's sniveling son. It just didn't pan out for Landon. Yet, Faith's character impressed me. I personally would have looked for another buyer for the team than Virgil's a-hole of a son, but that's besides the point. She kept the team and an she was more than just a blond bombshell. She learned at a young age that she need to have a thick skin. It's not always easy.

Next we have Ty Savage, the captain of the Chinooks. He's handsome and great hockey player, plus he's worried about his team. Especially, when Mrs. Duffy decides to keep the team. Faith doesn't know much about hockey. Fortunately, she finds a manager that is willing to help her. That's not the only problem Ty has against Faith, it's all due to the fact he has a hard-on for the woman. Complicates a mess of issues.

Basically, we have Faith not sure why Ty can't stand her and is angry with her all the time. She's trying to be the best owner that she can be. We have all this sexual tension building between the two of them. Which makes a pretty good story.

Overall, True Love and Other Disasters was a pretty good listen. I enjoyed the story overall, but I was a little disappointed with the ending. Yes, they manage to have a happy ending, but I just didn't feel like they put Landon in his place. It felt like you assumed he was put in his place. Oh well. Yet, I enjoyed the growth of character Faith had endured, cause you get the feeling that she didn't know who she was at the beginning of the story and she slowly came into her own. I liked that she started to believe in herself. Ty is Ty. He kind of was struggle to like. He was so judgmental of Faith and pretty much thought her as ding bat. It wasn't until he got to know her that I started to like him.

Now the narration: I struggled at the beginning of the book. I felt that the narrater was a bit breathy most of the times. It felt a little over dramatic. When it feels like she's pausing too often and taking too long. There was a couple of times there were accents I felt didn't fit the character or I wanted her to pick. When Faith got nervous it sounded like she had a southern accent, which is not possible because she's from Nevada. However, her breathy reading did provide great sex scenes. Overall, she did an okay job.

Tasty Book Tours Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: The Spinster's Guide to Scandalous Behavior by Jennifer McQuiston

The Spinster's Guide to Scandalous Behavior
Seduction Diaries #2
By: Jennifer McQuiston
Releasing November 24, 2015

When her eccentric aunt suddenly dies and bequeaths her the key to a falling-down cottage in Cornwall, Lucy Westmore is surprised. After all, she scarcely knows her aunt, and her memories of Heathmore are murky, at best. But even more surprising is the part of Lucy’s inheritance that doesn’t come with a key: an old leather journal that provides the details of her mysterious aunt’s life and-for better or worse-gives Lucy all the instructions she needs to live the life of a scandalous spinster.

Lord Thomas Branston has spent the last five years in Cornwall, hiding from his painful past. Nothing has been tempting enough to lure him back to London…until now. He alone knows the real value of the property, and he’s determined to buy Heathmore before Miss Westmore ruins everything and sells it off to the highest bidder.

Emboldened by the guidance in her aunt’s diary, Lucy refuses to sell the property, not even when Lord Branston’s offers escalate, or when the house turns out to be truly uninhabitable. Lucy has no intention of giving up her one chance for independence. And Thomas has no intention of abandoning his suit.

But is it the property or the spitfire of a spinster that’s got his heart all tied up? And what is he willing to offer for both?

Forever Romance Blitz + Q&A + Excerpt + Giveaway: Duke Are Forever by Anna Harrington

1. ­ What would readers be surprised to find out about you?
I have a pilot’s license. I took flying lessons at Chicago Midway and eventually earned both my private license and instrument rating in Chicago Center and my complex/high-performance sign-off at Gary Regional Airport. (And I deeply apologize to Southwest Airlines and to the tower controllers for any problems I might have caused.)

2.     Tell us about your writing process. Do you start with an idea or a character? Do you know what’s going to happen from the beginning or do you figure it out as you write?
I usually start with a problem and work out from there, creating the characters, places, and conflicts that radiate from that central problem. For DUKES ARE FOREVER, the problem was simple: what if a new duke was forced to take a ward who wasn’t a child but a full-grown woman? Then, the ideas just ripple out from that like circles in a pond. The first thing I do is sketch out the external and internal conflicts, then I write out the basic plot and backgrounds for the two main characters, which is usually about 2 – 3 pages long. I then start filling in details. When I’m finished, I’ll have what I consider the “outline draft”—about 20 single-spaced pages. Then, I start writing. And 95K words later, I’m finished and dive into a big bowl of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!

3.     Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?
Dr. John Stratton, my college writing instructor, who told us repeatedly, “Writing isn’t about you. You’re just the author. What matters is the reader. If you’re not giving the reader what he or she wants, then you’re not writing.”

Now he’s back in her life, as her new undercover partner, and the tension between them is hotter than ever.

Just one assignment away from joining the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, John isn’t going to let anything throw him off his game—not even the stunning, self-assured blonde who once showed him up at Quantico. He’ll work with Jessica to take down a corrupt politician, even if pretending to be business partners staying at a beachfront resort means they have to get a little too close for comfort. It’s all part of the charade, until the heat of the moment tempts them both into letting down their guard…

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn't help that she can't keep her eyes off of her sexy boss – the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast.

The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal by Victoria James (Review)

 I was giving a chance to read The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal, which featured Allison Barrington (Allie) and Ethan Dane. If you guys have read The Billionaire's Christmas Baby you would remember that Ethan and Allie were best friends to Jack and Hannah. If you haven't you will survive, and you can always go back and see where Allie and Ethan first met.

Allie, is an internal optimist even after her world starts to crumble she still hopes for the best. Lets outline what is going wrong in her life before we continue: 1) Her building is pretty much burned down. 2) Her job is in jeopardy, because the landlord would like to sell the property. 3) Her mother is a piece of crap (that's being nice). 4) If it couldn't get any worse it happens during the Christmas season. Now a pessimist or a realist would be like well life just sucks or could things get any worst, not Allie. Fortunately, Allie has a good friend who takes her and her sister into his home. Oh yeah, she's taking care of her 16 year old sister (refer to three).

Now Ethan has been crushing on Allie since Jack and Hannah's wedding. The guy has asked Allie out like three times already, but he still holding out hope. Now that Allie needs his help, he sees his golden opportunity. However, there is a catch. He might be the cause of her losing her job, because he has been give a lucrative opportunity to get into the good graces of his father. Yay for getting back in his father good graces, ooh might lose the girl. Ethan has to make a choice and it's not an easy one, so he's trying to figure out a way to do both.

Love The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal, because we have two people who are highly attracted to one another. Yet, Allie is too afraid to go out of with Ethan, because important people in her life let her down. We don't find this out until we started to breakdown the characters. At the same time, Ethan is afraid to truly let people in due to health issues. Again, we don't find this out until we get to know each of the characters. A lot of the fun moments actually come from the interaction of Allie's snarky teenage sister. Actually, she puts things into perspective for Allie and Ethan, but you don't realize this. Overall, The Billionaire's Christmas Proposal is a great holiday read, because it helps us to remember what the holidays are truly meant to be.

Sassy Savvy Fabulous PR Release Day Blitz + Excerpt + Giveaway: My Soul to Keep by Kennedy Ryan

release day banner copy


It seems the things worth keeping are often the hardest to hold...


I had two things in life that mattered. My mother and my music. Mama was taken from me too soon, and now music is all I have left. It’s the thing that’s pushed me right out of backwoods Georgia into Los Angeles, where the line between fantasy and reality shimmers and blurs. I’m finally making my way, making my mark. I can’t afford to fall for one of music's brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.


I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can't get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything - I will. And once she's mine, I won't let go.

Tasty Book Tours Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: Blindsided by Jami Davenport

Game On in Seattle #6
By: Jami Davenport  
Released October 11, 2015
Sedona Enterprises

USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport introduces the Seattle Steelheads football team with this sixth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series.

The daughter of one-time rock legends, Emma Maxwell is the good girl of the family, the dutiful sister, the doting aunt, and a dedicated employee in the family party-crashing business. Every Wednesday night at Karaoke, she indulges in her secret fantasy of being a singer. Yet the thrill of being on stage doesn't rival the thrill of a spontaneous liaison with the delectable, yet downtrodden, quarterback of the Seattle Steelheads, Tanner Wolfe, Emma’s long-time crush.

Tanner didn't see it coming--not any of it. He was blindsided--by his dysfunctional family, his plummeting career, and the one thing he least expected--by love. After photos with Emma go viral, Tanner is caught in a lie and tells a bigger one to get out of it. Now he’s shoulder-pads deep in a temporary marriage while struggling to resurrect his disastrous career and reunite his broken family. As time passes, Tanner begins to wonder if temporary is good enough, but he’s made a promise to Emma, one which has nothing to do with marriage vows and everything to do with her Nashville singing career and the end of their relationship.

Will Tanner and Emma take the ball and drive for the win, or will they be permanently relegated to the sidelines as the clock runs out on their temporary marriage?

Lusting for Covers (97): An Indecent Invitation by Laura Trentham

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.

This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

This Weeks Selection:

An Indecent Invitation by Laura Trentham
Publisher: Samhain (Aug. 2015)
Series: Spies and Lovers, 1
Genre: Historical


Keeping her safe is difficult, keeping a proper distance from her is downright impossible.

Lady Lily Drummond understands only too well the danger of spy work. Her father, a preeminent master spy, has been missing for months, and her brother barely survived his final mission for the Crown. Lily is still determined to help find her father, no matter how hard her brother and his best friend try to keep her in the dark.

Busy trying to untangle the web of deceit surrounding the Earl of Windor’s disappearance, Crown spy Gray Masterson also has to ensure Lily Drummond, the gangly, awkward child who was his constant shadow growing up, doesn’t get herself ruined at her London debut. But the girl with scraped knees and elbows has evolved into a lush, sensual beauty surrounded by a bevy of suitors.

Realizing Lily is going to investigate on her own if he doesn’t let her join the hunt for her missing father, Gray assumes he can give Lily a few minor tasks to pacify her, but he quickly learns she is a valuable asset. Moreover, she fairly crackles with life and warmth—things he craves after his dark years in service.

Warning: This book contains spies, scandals, naughty liaisons in houses of ill repute, men who think they know everything and women who know they do not.

When I first saw this cover months ago, I fell in love with the dress and the pose. It's beautiful. Plus, I like the font. However, when it comes to the historical romance Samhain has some pretty covers too, and I always love their tag lines. There you go. What do you guys think of my pick of the week?
