Being left to lead the fae alongside an annoyingly charming partner really screws with your life.
Skylar Chen just received the promotion of an eternity. After Tristan and Aurora trade their esteemed status for mundane life, it’s now her responsibility to lead the fae.
The catch? She has to work with Nikolai Sterling. With his constant smirks and dangerous good looks, he has a way of getting under Skylar’s skin like no one else. Even still, she’d much rather be getting under him.
Sexual tension aside, they have a bigger issue to deal with. The Experiment, a human organization built on hatred toward the fae, threatens to wipe them from existence. It’s time for Skylar and Nikolai to recruit allies, bring the fae together, and prepare for battle.
Fighting to protect her people is something Skylar can manage. It’s the skeletons in her designer closet that make opening up to Nikolai where she’s suddenly out of her element.
In this finale novella, the beloved side characters from Twisted Fate and Twisted Gift take center stage to bring down the organization set on destroying them.

I’m the darling of Australian TV. A good-girl actress with a spotless record. Or at least, that’s what I let the public believe. But what I do behind closed doors would shock them all. I’m a far cry from the girl next door I play on their screens each night. 

Riley Clarke knows that better than anyone.

I loved him once, but for the past ten years, all we’ve done is f**k and fight. Some might say we’re friends with benefits, but the truth is, we aren’t even friends. All we are is explosive chemistry and screw-you-senseless sex. He makes me hot. He makes me feel. He makes me reckless. 

When scandal rocks my carefully constructed world and my secrets are exposed, it’s Riley’s arms that close around me, protecting me from the storm.

Book Two, in A Sinful Series, brings you an intense, taboo love story, and an even hotter ALPHA. Meet Luca King— broody, powerful and a man who’s never refused.

There are only two reasons a man falls to his knees: prayer and pussy.

And I sure as hell don’t pray.

But for this woman, I’d fall on my knees to worship every single, gorgeous part of her body. And claim her as mine, knowing I shouldn’t want to keep her.

Because we’re all wrong, too complicated, too explosive… too sinful.

I want what I can’t have.

But I’ll take it anyway because Gretchen Andrews has done the one thing my wife never could… she’s made me love her.

Excerpt

Luca’s hand pulls away from my chin, and he takes my glass, putting it on the table.
“How I see it is you need to stop assuming the worst and trust me to care for you, and the only way for us to do that is to make sure you get what you need, over and over, until you take it for granted.”
He’s talking about more than just sex, even though I love the “over and over” part. I didn’t trust him; I prolonged this moment as much as his stubbornness did. But I did it by way of mistrust, assuming he wouldn’t do what we both needed.
“So, you want to teach me a lesson in trust?”
The desire in my voice gives away my readiness.
He nods.
“I paid a helluva price almost losing you. What price should you pay for not trusting me? Huh?”
The tumbler he’s holding runs up my leg, and I can feel the coolness through my jeans. Luca leans close to my cheek and whispers, “Choose your fate. Do you want to be fucked or loved, Angel?”
I close my eyes, knowing they aren’t mutually exclusive, but for us, they have very specific meanings. He knows I need the connection between us, the aggression and anger we’ve both felt to play about in the sheets.
His breath is warm against my skin as he keeps whispering.
“Maybe we play your favorite game, Angel. I’ll hunt you…here.”
He brings the glass between my legs and runs it up, rolling it over where my clit is throbbing. My breath hitches.
“Do you trust me?” he asks seductively.
He sets his drink down and begins to gather my T-shirt, tugging it up.
I look around, worried about being caught.
“Luca, someone could catch us. The wall is all glass.”
The minute I say it, I know I failed my lesson. Luca doesn’t stop or change expression as he pulls my shirt up and over my head, leaving me exposed in just my bra.
“Take them off, or I will,” he directs in his deep gravel, indicating my jeans.
I’m not a submissive girl. But when he does this, gets sexually dominant, I feel understood. I’m a powerful woman, and I need a man who can handle me, break me, and make me feel devoured. Luca was made for me. He crosses his arms over his chest.
“The longer I wait, the longer you wait to come. Get ’em off,” he growls. Holy hell, I’m wet. Rough Luca is my favorite Luca.
I reach slowly for my button and pull it open, challenging his patience by lowering the zipper only a fraction.
“You know, I’m not wearing underwear,” I lie.
The thought of being fucked out here where someone could catch us makes me nervous, even if I’m supposed to trust him.
“When I pull off these jeans, everyone will see what’s yours…you sure you want to share?” My voice is a purr, and he bites his lip, gripping his bulge.
I know I’ve won. No fucking way is he willing to share me with prying eyes.
Right as I feel victorious, Luca shakes his head and says, “So fucking stubborn,” then grabs me by the waistband of my jeans and jerks me forward.
“Luca!” I yelp and laugh.
He pushes his hand down the front of my jeans, and I gasp, silenced. Grabbing my tiny lace G-string, along with the few hairs I have down below, he tugs me closer, and the sensation makes my pussy slick with need.
My back arches from being pulled forward.
“Little liar,” he whispers knowingly, and I whimper.
Pleasure grips my body as his hold tightens.
“You definitely need a lesson in trust. Maybe I’ll take it out on your ass or maybe in your ass. Here’s the game, baby: I catch you, I pick.”
His hand retreats as he takes a step away from me.
I’m breathless. My entire body is on fire. This man speaks to every filthy fucking piece of me.
“What’s the second choice? What if you don’t catch me?” I ask hungrily.
A slow smile grows on his gorgeous face. Luca takes out his phone from his pocket and presses a button, laughing to himself.
The light that glowed from inside the house begins to fade as heavy black shades roll down, and I hear a click as the door locks. He was never going to let me be seen. But now, I’m on my own.

#ReleaseBlitz – Covet by Ella James



Title: Covet
Collection: Sinful Secrets #3
Author: Ella James
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2019



Blurb

Homer Carnegie. Admit it—you know my name. Your kid’s got my e-trading card. Your husband sits up straighter when I stroll onto the TV screen. He knows I’m going to crack the bat and save the day. Even your grandma’s jonesing for my autograph. But women my age? They’re the worst. Or would that be the best?

It’s not my fault they line up at the door. They catch my balls all right, two at a time sometimes, or even three. Believe me, everybody wins.

At least they did—until the video. I heard TMZ paid a million for a bird’s eye view of Homer on his A-game. The only folks who didn’t watch with eager eyes? Red Sox management. They want me benched, or worse, shipped off to rehab.

It’s a long story, what happens next. How I end up on a boat, bound for the world’s most remote island: Tristan da Cunha. Just a speck of dust in the Atlantic.

Except my heart is there.
I don’t know that when I step onto the boat.
I don’t know a lot of things.
What I’ll covet…
What I’ll lose…

*Covet is the third standalone in the Sinful Secrets collection, where each book is inspired by a sin and centered around a secret.

#BRMondays – Snatched by Cathleen Ross

Published September 17th, 2018
Print Length: 188 pages
Genre: Contemporary Military Romance

AMAZON / GOODREADS

My Review

My first book by Cathleen Ross and I would want to read more of her work just to make sure my first impression is not the only thing I have for the future. Don’t get me wrong, the book was well done and I enjoy reading it but… I think this author has potential at some level.

The characters were interesting, mostly because I loved the premise of the story: my sister for your sister. It sounds kind of simple but it wasn’t I liked that.

My problem with the characters is that I felt the biker act a little crazy at times. It fits with his mean guy kind of look but it did not click with me. At least he admitted he was an a$$hole.

The female protagonist was strong but weak. Nobody is perfect but I liked her the most between them because he was just so close to being too much at times that I just couldn’t side with him.

I have my doubts when it came to the first encounter between them but I don’t feel, deep down, that it wasn’t consensual. It could be seen like that so, I wouldn’t be surprised is someone was offended by that encounter.

My favorite parts where when the President of the MC and his wife were in the scene. OMG, that was just so funny and cute to watch, at least for me.

Writing wise I think the author did a great job. I did not find any grammar errors or anything like that, and the vocabulary was simple enough that it was easy to follow. The flow of the story was good and it wasn’t cut, for me, at any point during the book.

The twist of the sister left me with interest in the next book. I’m very interested in seeing how this works out.

I would recommend this book to those that love biker romances, just a reminder that this is fiction and that some roughing around might ensue.

About the Author

There are many ways an aspiring writer can make it into print and I believe every writing credit helps build a career. Be game. Be creative. Be brave.

The first year I joined Romance Writers, a new publisher came to the conference and asked writers for erotic stories for their anthologies. Fired with enthusiasm, although I had never written a sex scene, I sent in my first erotic story Sweet Vengeance. The editor bought it and asked for more, so I sent Astral Ecstasy and the editor bought that too. I don’t know why I had to be good at writing about sex but it’s not something I’m going to complain about, not with so many publishers looking for hot stories.

This unusual success propelled me to write an erotic partial for Black Lace, Virgin Publishing, London, which was then the largest publisher of women’s erotic fiction in the world. They took on three new authors that year and I was one of them. The editor contracted me on a partial and I quickly had to write an eighty thousand word novel full of sex and make it interesting. My book Man Hunt became the best selling erotic book on the Virgin Publishing website in 2006. It is currently selling in England, Australia and America. The more I tell people that they might be offended by the explicit and unusual sex scenes, the faster they go out and buy the book.

I love reading women’s magazines and always fantasized about writing for them. I started by sending in pitches to the magazines I loved but none of them sold, but I didn’t give up. That’s the main lesson a writer has to learn. Never give up.

I’ve found if a writer scratches the surface, people are always doing amazing things that make good stories. I often hear about funny confessional style sex stories from my friends, so I wrote some up and sold them to various magazines. Mind you, I did change details to protect the guilty!

I found that once a writer gets something accepted by an editor it is easier to sell more work.

This success led to editors ringing me and asking would I write stories for products. For example, I was asked to write a story about a new cream that gives women continuous orgasms. Naturally, I rang the manufacturer and asked for a sample. It is important when writing to do ones research. I couldn’t write about a product like that without trying it. Well that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

I also think it is easier to get published if you are prepared to try to write for the new publishing lines where the editors are actively seeking authors. It helps to go to conferences, meet editors and introduce yourself.

One publishing credit often leads to another, but it is important to get used to rejections to. Learn to get over it and to keep trying. Not everything sells, but for me, there is nothing more exciting than when you get that call from an editor.

Mind you, I haven’t got my hands on that new cream yet.

#BRMondays – Give Me Fever by Jasmine & Arielle Lockhart

Published January 15th, 2019
Print Length: 206 pages
Genre: Contemporary Romance

four-half-star

AMAZON / GOODREADS

My Review

This is the story of Jessa and Jackson. They got married young and in love, but Jackson’s huge drive to get a better life for him and his wife, along with the lack of good understanding between them, broke them apart.

Jessa went back to their old town and bought the home plantation from under her ex during the divorce. Now Jackson wants to sell it but the man that bought it refuse to listen to reason. So he flew to his old town to talk to the guy and Jessa’s lie was up, but that wasn’t the only thing they discover when they got brought together by destiny.

I believe the Lockhart sisters did a fantastic job with their debut novel. Working as a team in writing doesn’t sound easy but there was no difference, in my opinion, in the writing style. So they did great at mixing their writing together while telling a story.

When I saw what happened with their divorce, which was pre-talked about on the blurb, I was jumping with joy because I love me a good marriage that loves each other get a second chance so they can live happily together.

The plot was interesting and so precious. I do have to say that Jessa annoyed me a little bit with how easy she blamed Jackson for things without looking at herself too. Good thing she noticed and did the right thing later or I would have been really mad.

I would recommend this book to those that love second chance romances.

Disclaimer: I got an ARC copy from the authors. Thanks Lockhart Sisters!

About the Author

Jasmine and Arielle Lockhart were born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, in a house overflowing with books, art, and poetry scrawled on scraps of paper by the hands of their father and mother. The sisters spent their childhood summers setting crawdad traps and picking peaches from the three-hundred-year-old tree on their family’s plantation. On stormy nights when the power would go out in the Antebellum home, Arielle would distract her younger sister by telling her stories. It never took long before Jasmine’s fear of the dark was forgotten and she was butting in with her own ideas of how the story should go.

In 2017, over mint julep’s on the plantation’s ivy-laden porch, Jasmine and Arielle came up with the crazy idea to co-write a romance novel. A year and many heated debates later, the first book in the Fever series was complete.

When she’s not nagging her sister to add more kissing scenes to their books, Jasmine is a world-traveler, living between New Orleans and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.

Arielle currently resides on the plantation, where she spends her days writing and convincing Grammy Dee that Annabelle, the housekeeper she hired three years ago, is not the reincarnation of the young woman who hung herself in the peach tree after her fiancé failed to return from war.
