Featured Author: Gracen Miller


Taboo Kisses…where desires and inhibitions collide.

Dispatched to the mortal realm from Atlantis to seek the source of a brewing rebellion, Sameya is thrown for a tailspin when she discovers her fated mates. As a siren her songs entice mankind and immortals alike to their death. She’s stunned to be seduced by a taboo union with a tiger-shifter and vampyr. Mating the pair could complicate everything and threaten her freedom. Fueled by her duty to Atlantis, Sameya rejects fate’s wisdom and refutes her attraction to the men.

Taboo Kisses…when the forbidden becomes irresistible.

Gabriel and Maximus have been searching for their mate for centuries. Neither expected the siren they were hired to find would deliver more than a lucrative payday. Frustrated by Sameya’s aversion to their mating, the men anticipate an empty future if she refuses to complete their union. In a rash move Maximus seizes Sameya and holds her captive.

Taboo Kisses…when the siren is serenaded with temptation.

Trapped and at their mercy, Sameya is bombarded with pleasure. Can her mates convince her to take a gamble on their taboo union? With danger lurking in the shadows, will the choice be taken from her?

3rd Annual Bloggoversary Giveaway #4



Featured Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon


Dark-Hunters, Daimons, zombies, demons, shapeshifters— another day in the life of Nick Gautier– and those are just his friends. But now that he’s accepted the demon that lives inside him, he must learn to control it and temper the very emotions that threaten the lives of everyone he cares for. Something that’s hard to do while trying to stay off the menus of those who want his head on a platter. And no one wants him more than the dark gods who created his race. Now that they know where he is, they will stop at nothing to reclaim him. And without knowing it, Nick has just embraced the one person he should never have trusted. The one person who will hand him over to his enemies to get back the life they lost.

Nick has finally accepted his fate, now he must learn to defy his destiny, and the dark, deadly forces that will stop at nothing to destroy everyone he loves so that they can again return to the world of man and own it.


My name is Nick Gautier and this is the story of my life.

First off, get the name right. It’s pronounced Go-shay not Go-tee-ay or Goat-chay (that has an extra H in it and as my mom says we’re so poor we couldn’t afford the extra letter). I’m not some fancy French fashion designer. I’m just a regular kid… well as regular as someone with a stripper for a mother and a career felon for a father can be.

But as my mom so often says friends are what God gives us to make up for the families we’re born into. And my mother, in spite of her occupation is a lady and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. Consider this your notice. You respect Cherise Gautier or I’ll learn you better.

My kingdom is the French Quarter and here I reign as prince. Everyone knows me. From the gallery owners, artists, restaurateurs and Voodoo priestesses to the...

Review: Rebel of Copper Creek R. C. Ryan



A love worth fighting for . . .

The last thing widow Juliet Grayson needs is a man in her life. Between caring for her two young sons and maintaining her husband's ranch, her hands are more than full. Then she meets Griff Warren. With his quiet strength and his easy way with her boys, she's tempted to trust him. But if there's anything she's learned, it's that love only leads to heartbreak.

Former Marine Griff Warren never thought he'd settle down. Rebellious and proud, he's always been on his own . . . until the father he never knew he had died, leaving him with land that is his legacy and brothers to share the load. He doesn't need more than that. But Juliet touches something deep inside him-and he wants nothing more than to protect her and her sons. Now if only he can convince her to take a second chance at true love.



The Rebel of Copper Creek is the second book in the Copper Creek Cowboys series, however it stands well on its own.  However, they mystery seems to be started in Book 1.

Griff is a Marine who upon returning from Afghanistan learns that the father he never knew has died.  He is accepted into his new family and is adjusting slowly into his new family.  When he is out with his brother he runs into a fellow veteran that he met on his tour.  Jimmy tells him about a group doing riding therapy and asks Griff to come with him to check it out.  There is where Griff meets a young widow and her sons.

Juliet’s life has been full of hardship.  Her husband past away after she cared for after he became disabled.  She is left with two young boys and a ranch that is falling down around her.  She wants to offer riding therapy but the hydraulic lift she needs is broken. 

Griff meets Juliet and her boys and sees himself growing up without a father.  And finds himself drawn to them and to the lovely Juliet.   The road to love isn’t always paved with hearts and flowers, but Griff takes on the job protecting the family.  Can Juliet let go of her deceased husband and learn to love again?

R. C. Ryan’s characters are well defined and realistic.  Watching Griff and Juliet struggle with their past to find a future is wonderful!  The writing style is fluid and pulls you into the story and will keep you turning pages!

If you are looking for a read that has a bit of it all – romance, family, hope, suspense, and mystery, thrown together with a wonderful sprinkling of humor, this one is definitely worth the time.

Featured Authors: Jennifer Bernard


For the sexy, daring, smokin' hot Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel, fighting fires is a breeze compared to falling in love.

The Night Belongs to Fireman

Daring . . . Sexy . . . Irresistible . . .
They're the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel


When fireman Fred Breen rescues a bachelorette party after a construction crane collapses onto their limo, the media labels him the "Bachelor Hero." But all Fred can think about is the petite brunette with the sexy mane of dark curls who bolted away from him faster than a wildfire after he carried her to safety. And when he discovers she's none other than Rachel Kessler, the daughter of a tech billionaire, the girl whose kidnapping riveted the nation, he intends to learn every intimate detail about this intriguing woman who sets his pulse on fire.

Rachel can't deny the lean-muscled firefighter is smokin' hot. But after having one too many drinks at the bar where she first meets him, Rachel knows she's made a fool of herself. Yet when he rescues her from the limo, she feels safe for the first time since she was held for ransom as a child.

Review: Sweet Talk Me by Kieran Kramer



HE'S SURE GOT A WAY WITH WORDS…

The last person True Maybank expected to run into while picking up her wedding gown was country music superstar Harrison Gamble. Years ago, when they were small-town teens in Biscuit Creek, South Carolina, they shared a forbidden night of passion. Now that she's about to settle down, True's love affair with the handsome crooner is a thing of the past. Or is it? In Sweet Talk Me, from the moment he says hello, she has to fight swooning like an adoring fan.


CAN SHE RESIST HIS CHARMS?

Today he's rich, famous, and on every woman's hot list. But back in the day, Harrison wasn't good enough for debutante True. Since then she's had her fair share of marital prospects, including the perfect Southern gentleman she's about to settle down with. Is Harrison the only one to realize the mistake True's about to make? Can the society girl and the sexy singer make music together--this time around?


This is the first book that I have read by Kieran Kramer and I must say I am very pleased.  I don’t read many contemporary romances but this one is above average.


True Maybeck and Harrison Gamble were friends 10 years ago, and Harrison left to pursue a music career.  True was a debutant and Harrison was beneath her station as far as her family was concerned.  On the day she is picking up her wedding dress – she runs into Harrison.  Can he make her see that she is making a horrible mistake marrying Dubose is a mistake?
Ms. Kramer’s writing is lovely, she pulls you into the small town south and made me want to sip sweet tea.  The book is about family, coming home, and listening to your heart.  If you are looking for a sweet romance, full of southern charm, then this one is a keeper.





Review: One Good Earl by Sarah MacLean



One Good Earl Deserves a Lover, the second book in New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean’s award-winning Rules of Scoundrels series, is a lively, romantic adventure, starring a lovable, sometimes bumbling heroine and a sexy, leading man who offer up plenty of steamy sexual tension.
Nearly engaged to Lord Castleton, the always proper and logical Lady Philippa “Pippa” Marbury wants to learn about London’s dark side before she happily heads off to the country and embraces married life. But it’s in London’s shadowy corners where she meets Cross, the brooding, mysterious bookkeeper of The Fallen Angel, London’s most notorious and coveted gaming hell. He’s a rogue in every sense of the word. Or is he?
The heroes of the Rule of Scoundrels books will steal the hearts of their heroines and readers alike!


One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean is a great combination of passion and humor.  It is the second installment in series The Rules of Scoundrels.  It can be read as a standalone but I wish I had read the first book, A Rogue by Any Other Name first.  The book grabbed my attention and kept me interested from the first page

Lady Phillipa Marbury is the fourth daughter of the Marquess.  She knows there is something different about her.  She would rather read then worry about balls and dressing up.  She has been betrothed and knows although they have very little in common that he is a kind man and will treat her well.  Being the studious young thing she is she decides to live life to its fullest and research the forbidden side of life.  Phillipa needs a guide to the seedy side of London and she wants it to be the Earl of Harlow – commonly known only as Cross.

Cross finds Pippa in his room and has him wondering what and how she got into his private office and points out he has made a mistake in his accounting, and then asks him to teach her what goes on between a man and woman in bed.  He turns her away until she breaks him down and he realizes he may have met his match in Pippa.

             Cross is a different type of hero but I felt he and Pippa are meant for each other.  Ms. MacLean’s research on the time period is evident and her writing takes you back in time.  The sexual tension between Pippa and Cross is evident and when they come together it is passionate but not over the top.

If you are looking for a lovely sexually charged period romance I would highly recommend this one, and I look forward to reading more of the series.
