Publication date: May 23rd 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Ally

On the run, with no one to turn to,

I’m doing all I can to stay alive, protect myself, and my little boy.

I left everything behind, determined to start over and give my child a normal life.

I have rules. Rules I have to follow. Rules that keep me alive.

1. Keep my head down.

2. Keep life simple.

3. Trust no one.

That definitely includes retired Navy Seal Jonah Bradford. He’s completely off limits.

It doesn’t matter if he wakes up the woman inside of me.

I can’t be that woman anymore. No matter how much he makes me wish I could.

Jonah

Giving up my career to run the family business wasn’t an easy decision. Once a SEAL, always a SEAL.

Yet, I’ve adjusted. I like my life, but something is missing.

One look at the freckle-faced beauty working at the local diner and I know exactly what it is.

But, I’m alive today by following my instincts and everything about Ally is setting off alarm bells that scream she’s trouble.

I don’t care. I want her.

The problem is she won’t give me the time of day.

That’s okay. I like a challenge.

I just have to uncover all of her secrets and end the fear that keeps shining in her eyes.

Operation Ally is underway.

Blurb From Goodreads:

My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.

I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

My Review:

Still LOVE Damien and Nikki!! These little nuggets of their lives remind me why I adored their story so much. It’s so nice to visit old friends again, and I hope to be able to visit them often. This is one of those relationships that we all dream about; Damien is the ultimate book boyfriend (I call dibs lol) *dreamy sigh*.

Blurb From Goodreads:

Order. Attention to detail. Never leaving anything to chance. These are the qualities that make Riley Ness such a terrific federal agent . . . and a pain in the ass to everyone else. The only time Riley lets loose is when he’s hanging out with his closest pals. So when he’s thrown together with gorgeous, flighty Summer Sheridan, Riley’s brain tells him she’s a ticking time bomb—but his body doesn’t want to play by the rules.

Riley has to be the most irritating man Summer has ever met. The brooding hunk thinks he needs to teach her a few lessons about real life, while she’d rather show him how to enjoy it. But her BFF’s all but engaged to Riley’s best friend, and besides, their intense physical chemistry is all too real. Summer just needs Riley to try to meet her halfway and take a chance with the one thing that matters: his heart.

My Review:

I am loving the Naked Men! I can’t seem to get enough of them. Riley is a bit of a control freak, it’s based on safety but he’s wound just a bit too tight for me. Still can’t help but love him though. Summer is as carefree as the weather, spontaneous and unpredictable. I love how total opposite they are, but ultimately, it works. Still wish there was an actual blog for the guys that I could follow, but I’d probably never get anything done lol. It would be so much fun to hang out with this group of characters; they are more like a family than just friends. And the guys are just dreamy with awesome personalities. A must read for any romance lover!

Devyn’s heart pounds for Emily. But he’s determined to keep her at arm’s length. From the time she first kissed him in the Broylbury coffee shop, Emily has been the one. But she’d also been engaged to his brother Kyle. Because of his guilt over Kyle’s death, Devyn can’t be with Emily. He doesn’t deserve her.

Will Emily break through Devyn’s guilt, or will she be forced to bond with a vampire not of her own choosing in order to survive…

Emily’s heart aches with longing. Devyn is the one. Though she was engaged to his brother, Kyle, somehow Devyn reached into her soul and grabbed on hard.

My Review:

Ooooh, this was really good. Had no idea where it might go and I like that. I figured it was an HEA but at times I wasn’t sure. And I’m so glad to be back in this vampire world, I enjoyed the other books. Emily is a very strong character; she was willing to walk away from the man she’s loved for the past five years. All because he can’t get over the guilt he carries over his brother’s death. A very interesting story with the time travel, can’t wait to read more!!

Author Bio:

Author PhotoI confess I’ve had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I’ve been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King–and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire–one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire.

For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. My special vampire world, published by St. Martin’s Press, is introduced in the first book called, ASCENSION (12-28-2010). The second book, BURNING SKIES (May of 2011), opens up the world a little bit more. And even as I write this, I’m on the final draft of my third novel, WINGS OF FIRE (September of 2011). What a thrill it has been to live with my ascended vampires through the creation of this extraordinary, multi-dimensional world!

For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension.

With every hope you’ll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

Blurb From Goodreads:

A girl goes on trial for murder, but it’s the judge who committed the crime.

Johanna Kozak is not unaccustomed to the harshness of living in a Supernatural world. When her best friend is brutally murdered by the judge at her trial, Johanna must find solace in being a martyr for the only cause she has ever known. Her days are marked by visits from a mysterious servant boy, and visions of the past that haunts her. Meanwhile, her trial commences among the Council, and lines are being drawn. Her judge knows Johanna did not act alone, and if her co-conspirators aren’t careful, this prison break is about to land them all belly up in the heart of the beast.
Wrought with secrets, lies, heartbreak, and betrayal, will Johanna find peace in her ruling, or do the gallows await them all?

If you love the strong friendships shown in Truthwitch and the hint of darkness behind everything Cassandra Clare, Trial by Heist will keep you up well into the night as you read about one young woman’s fight for survival in a world that would rather see her dead.

Pick up your copy of Trial by Heist now, and dive into the world of Daizlei Academy for another thrilling adventure!

Bombastic #BookBlitz: Donovan by Jillian Quinn

Donovan
Jillian Quinn
(Face-Off Series, #3)
Publication date: May 24th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

As the starting goaltender for the Philadelphia Flyers, Carter Donovan has the toughest position on the team. He’s hot as puck, a caveman in bed, and a beast on the ice. But after another season of missing the playoffs, Carter is taking the off-season harder than normal.

Just when Carter needs a change of luck, his teammate sets him up with Sydney Carroway, a famous romance author who likes to play games of her own. And after a blind date gone wrong, the dark-haired beauty has him wrapped around her finger. Sydney tortures Carter with her dirty words and pictures, thrives off the steamy conversations that give him a never-ending case of blue balls. Carter knows it. But he can’t get enough.

It might be Carter’s job to protect the net when he’s on the ice, but when it comes to Sydney, he needs more than a killer glove save to defend his heart.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

Carter Donovan has no idea I am messing with him. I bet he thinks I’m an evil witch, toying with his dick along with his emotions. Maybe I am, or at least to some extent, but damn him for shaving his beard. I’m still pissed about that. When I walked into Tyler Kane’s house last weekend, he was dressed in gym clothes and had only a tiny bit of facial hair. I was disappointed, to say the least.

I was hoping to kick things off with his face shoved between my legs and that stubble rubbing against my skin. Over the past two days, Carter has called non-stop. He even sent flowers and gifts to my apartment. To be honest, I was shocked to receive such lavish presents from him. The Chanel sunglasses were a bit overboard, but at least I know he has good taste. And that’s an important quality in a man who I am considering dating.

Flipping through a magazine on my couch, I wait for Carter to knock on the door. He’s twenty minutes early again, same as last time. I didn’t even have a chance to hop in the shower before he said he was almost here.

Part of me wants to take him into my bedroom and have my way with him. The other part of me, the side that likes experimenting with the opposite sex for research purposes, tells me I should make him wait a little while longer. After all, our relationship could make for good writing material for my next book.

As the author of all things smutty and over-the-top, I draw a lot of my inspiration from experiences. Carter just doesn’t know that yet. Poor guy. Kennedy and I did the same thing with Tyler Kane when they had first met. He fell for that shit hook, line, and sinker. Now, the two of them are living together and practically married. There’s a method to my madness.

I fix my dark curls in the mirror on the wall next to the door and double check my makeup before opening it. Drool just about runs down my chin as I take in the sight of Carter. He’s one sexy hunk of man candy. With those big, strong arms that are more suited for boxing than hockey, I want him to grip me up in them and do bad things to me.

Carter smiles so wide it reaches up to his soulful brown eyes. “Hey, baby.”

“Don’t hey, baby, me,” I shoot back, feigning interest. But this is all part of the game.

He leans in to kiss my cheek, because I promised him one kiss, his fingers grazing my bare shoulder as he touches me, fiddling with the strap of my tank top. “You look beautiful, as always, Sydney.”

My willpower almost crumbles with his lips sending shockwaves down my spine. His big hand is dangerously close to my breast as he slides it the rest of the way down my arm. If he were a character in one of my books, I would say the hell with self-control and throw myself at him, allow myself to become consumed in his manly scent and intoxicating sex appeal.

“Thanks, big guy.” I tug on his forearm in an attempt to pull him into the apartment. He’s so big I can hardly move him an inch.

After Carter shuts the door, he surprises me by shoving me up against the wall. I do my best to get away from him, but he makes it difficult with his size. Carter is used to defending the net when he’s on the ice. He sure as hell proves that right now as he blocks my entire view of the living room with his body.

Bending down to my height, he breathes against my neck and ignites a fire beneath my skin. Heat rushes from my cheeks to my toes as he presses his lips to my neck. I move my head to the side to give him better access, my inhibitions lowering along with my guard. The walls I have built up to protect myself come crumbling down in an instant.

Bombastic #BookBlitz: The Tempest by Brit Constantine

The Tempest
Brit Constantine
Publication date: May 26th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

They call him “The Tempest.”

England’s most feared heavyweight-boxing champion.

He despises the fame and glory, but it’s nothing compared to the hate he inflicts on himself. All he wants is to be left alone to live on his boat in misery.

When I line up for his autograph, it’s instant fireworks. But not the beautiful stars-shine-bright kind. He’s rude. Heartless. A ticking time bomb of rage.

Luckily, I’m not afraid to put a lit match to his fuse.

I upload a private video of him to my one-million-subscribers channel. The video goes viral.

The ex-Royal Marine nearly breaks down my studio door to flag me inappropriate…

…while I’m in the middle of a live streaming event.

I don’t tell him. I don’t switch off the camera. I keep recording, secretly playing to my audience. He should have checked if the camera was rolling, right?

It should be a shipwreck from the moment the storm hits.

It is.

And then … it isn’t.

Our attraction is painful, undeniable, and it’s like I am Eve and his lips are the apple, and damn if his tongue isn’t the snake.

I am the only girl who can put this broken man back together again.

But he knows the secret he is keeping will tear us apart. He knows it’ll force my hand to break ties with the only family I have left in the world.

But once The Tempest, the man with the iron heart, falls in love … he’ll crush anyone who dares to take me away from him.

I have no choice but to go down with his ship.

Hook, line, and goddamned sinker.

The Tempest is a contemporary romance story of love, comedy and treachery.

No cheating. No OW/OM. Standalone. HEA. 18+

EXCERPT:

“I’m in love with you, Felicity. I love you with every ounce of my fucked up heart.” I feel every word get a strangle hold on my heart as he gently cups his hand on the side of my face, his thumb lovingly stroking my chin, caressing all that he holds. How can the best moment of my life also be the worst? “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t in love with you.” He looks at me in a way that only seems to get deeper and darker. “And I’ll keep on loving you. I won’t let a single damn thing change that.”

I am silent, so silent and so … fixedly terrified of what I already know. I know this is love. Because only love can drive us both this crazy. Only love can be this much of a mindfuck. Only love can hurt this much.

As messed up as it is, I will never get away from the fact that I love him. I tried denying it plenty of times to myself. I’ve never admitted it out loud to Lenic, not even in those moments when we were inseparable and it was like a drug to be touched by calloused fingers, and it was the only time I felt anything real, and that meant everything in the fucked up history that is my life. And I hate Lenic from the deepest part of my soul for making me love him. And I hate myself more for falling in love with a man that things will never be simple with.

It is as if the air gets thick, or disappears altogether, and it feels like I have to work to breathe. But Lenic does something more painful than the bliss of death and blackness. I feel lips, warm and chapped against my own.

Burying his hands in my hair, his lips press against mine, his tongue roving my mouth desperately, like he is trying to get some reaction, some tiny assurance that he hasn’t lost me yet, that there is something here worth saving.

I freeze completely under his searching kiss. I can’t meet those lips, can’t let myself feel, or damn if that dam won’t break and I would be bereft in an ocean of sorrow I don’t think I can hold back any longer. And I tremble under his force. I find my hands clinging to his body with a desperation that surprises me. And then, I finally give myself over to him.

My heart, my undeniable emotions, sear through me like a hot knife tearing at every piece of me, twisting my gut in agony. The guilt gnaws away inside, but I would rather fester in torment than reject his touch.

His kiss quickly becomes more aggressive and I fall into it, unable to fight it, unable to deny it. He tilts his head in the other direction and deepens the kiss again, like trying to get all that he can, here and now, and I start to wonder if this is a kiss goodbye.

“You’re the only thing that matters to me … don’t go,” he whispers, his voice barely audible. It is pleading, something like a prayer. “You’re everything.”

The feeling of desolation and hopelessness slams through me, and it is more than I can bear. I feel like I am on death row.

The intensity of his gaze is unlike it has ever been any other time. His eyes scream, ‘Don’t hurt me. Don’t break my heart.’

“No matter what…” He presses his lips to mine for a long moment before pulling away ever so slightly. “…I don’t want to lose you too.” His hand strokes my cheek lovingly, and I clench my teeth together hard, fighting that touch with every damn piece of me I have to fight with. “I can’t give you up, Felicity. I’m not capable of giving you up.”
