Blog Tour – Night of the Drakoryans

Night of the Drakoryans

A Reverse Harem Dragon Fantasy

from Ava Sinclair.

Buy Link ->-> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079WK6BW8/

Three dragon lords.
One reluctant maiden.
And only one long night to claim her.

Syrene does not come to Altar Rock as a willing sacrifice. Angered by her village’s eagerness to give her to the dragons, she seeks to escape. But the dragon who comes for her isn’t having it; he takes her anyway, and carries her home to share as mate with his shifter brothers.

Now the Lords of Jo’Lyn wonder if they haven’t made a mistake. Syrene is as defiant of them as she was of the village she believes rejected her. She swears she will not give herself to even one Drakoryan lord, let alone three.

But the three dominant dragon shifters will not be refused. With the survival of their bloodline hanging in the balance, they are determined to find creative ways to woo their wild mate before the sun rises once more over the empire.

He takes me to a balcony. I clutch the cape around my shoulders, for the air is chill. It is pitch dark.

“I thought you said we could see the moon from here.”

“And so you will.” He points to some clouds, smoky black against the indigo blue of the sky. They drift along, changing shape as they go. Then the shimmering moon emerges, brightening the sky.

I am amazed by the intensity of the glow. “How could something so bright hide itself?”

“Sometimes a shadow can be so heavy that we forget the brilliance behind it.” He looks down at me and the flutter I felt earlier returns. I know he is not talking about the moon now. “The best things are often hidden, Syrene of Arkney.” He reaches for my elbow and I tense as he pivots me towards him. “Will you not allow me to show you some of what your old life kept hidden? You are strong. You are smart. These are things I already sense. You are far better than the people you left behind. I think, down deep, you know this. I think you have always known this…”

“I know nothing.” I drop my eyes. Compliments are harder to accept than gifts. But the man before me persists.

“I do not believe that, Syrene. I believe you have grown comfortable with one way of being. You have allowed anger to carve a path into your soul, and you traverse that path in an endless loop. Let me guide you out of it. Let me help you carve other paths to wonder, paths to pleasure. Do
you not see that these things are your birthright?”

No one has ever spoken to me like this. No one has ever told me I deserve anything other than misery and scorn. But this man, this powerful lord who, along with his brothers, commands dragons, is telling me that happiness is my destiny, that I am worthy of all the things I believed I
would never have.

“I can’t,” I begin, but he puts a finger to my lips. “You can.” He smiles, and my heart lurches. No man in my village had such a handsome face. He pauses. “Syrene. Let me show you but a taste of what’s been hidden from you. I will not persist beyond what you allow.”

He moves his hand from my lip to the front of my cape, parting the fabric. The chill of the night moves through my gown, hardening my nipples to aching, up-thrust peaks. Then Lord Edrys brushes one through the fabric, his hand warm against the tight little nub. The contact makes it throb, and a tiny whimper of hidden need escapes from between my parted lips.

His large hand cups my breast now, squeezing firmly, and the throb I felt shifts lower, to between my thighs, like an itch, only different. It’s more like an ache that wants for something…contact, perhaps pressure. I am frustrated. I do not know what it is my body asks for as his other hand moves to the slight flare of my belly and then lower. The swelling ache in my core intensifies as his fingers descend, and when his hand reaches the top of the soft mound of my womanhood, feel a tiny ripple in my core. I cry out and leap away, pulling my cape around me.

“What was that?” I demand to know.  I can still feel the residual quivering, as if his touch is still there. “What is it you do to me?”

“That,” Lord Edrys says, “is a woman’s pleasure. Did no one ever speak to you of such things?”

Variety is the spice of life and Ava Sinclair writes a little something for everyone, from dark romance to menage to kinky AF age play. But the one thing that is consistent in her books are strong storylines, alpha males, and strong women whose hearts and bodies aren’t given up without a fight.

Ava lives in southern Virginia, where she enjoys hoarding books, hiking, running, spoiling her cats, and spending time with her Eurasian eagle owl, Lucius.

Review – Smiling So Hard For Another Regnery Hit

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smiling Irish; The Summerhaven Trio #2 (Series)
by Katy Regnery (Author)

This review is from: March 29, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

On a dark and stormy night a stranger appears at Tierney Haven’s doorstep. A stranger who was injured, needing help and speaking Irish no less. It was as if the man had jumped right from the pages of Tierney’s many books that kept her company on lonely nights. Not that she was lonely considering she preferred her solitary life, just sometimes she might be lonesome.

But back to the dark and mysterious stranger. He was covered in tattoos, injured, and Tierney was drawn to him when she probably should have been frightened. Instead she thought about all the times her brother, Ian, had disappeared during his drunken benders and who was there to take care of him. This stranger was potentially someone’s brother, son, even possibly someone’s husband. She couldn’t just turn him away. The fact he was handsome was only an added plus and she’d figure out whom he belonged to (like a wife) once he’s better.

Burr O’Leary has been working as an undercover cop for the past three years. Three years of his life doing and seeing things that would haunt him forever, but he did it for a job he loved knowing it was for a greater cause, that was until his cover was blown and his life and the life of his family is put in jeopardy. On the run, injured, and running a fever Burr ends up on Tierney’s doorstep by mistake. Fearing he may have now put her life in the same jeopardy has his own families he has to make a decision. Stay and risk the mounting feelings he has for her putting her further at risk knowing her life will never be safe or leave before emotions run too deep and hope there is never a connection made to the sweet woman who took him in.

Burr adores the sweet sass that Tierney is filled with while Tierney is enamoured with the protective, loyal man Burr is inside. By all appearances they seem like complete opposites, but together they make each other stronger.

Katy Regnery is a master at bringing two lost souls together who appear as total misfits, but when the puzzle is put together is a beautiful masterpiece. Smiling Irish will make you smile from start to finish.

Smiling Irish is the second book in the Summerhaven Trio. Fighting Irish has already been released so look for it at your favorite book retailer and Loving Irish is due to be released this summer.

They’re not at school now. These are games for grown-ups, and Ellie’s not sure of the rules

They were her heroes, her golden boys. But the two men she’s loved since they were all at school together don’t even recognise her.

A chance encounter on a train threatens to destroy Ellie’s fragile dream. Reunited with the now Duke of Erskine and his best friend, international footballer Declan Stone, she lies yet again to protect herself. But this time she doesn’t get away with it.

They want her, they always did. And there was a time she would have done anything for them. But can the quiet, studious Ellie learn to play grown-up games with two rich and powerful men? Does she dare to? What will Her Two Doms demand of her, and does she want to be sucked into their world again?

Excerpt:

“We like beautiful things, too. Come here, Ellie.”

Fraze’s tone has lowered an octave or three. Declan says nothing, but he is leaning on the pole at the foot of the bed, his arms crossed. Both men allow their gazes to travel over every inch of me and make no secret of their appraisal. I start to feel like a precious artefact myself.

“Come here,” Fraze repeats. “Stand at the foot of the bed and keep still. I’ll watch while Dec undresses you.”

I swallow but obey. This is no time to be coy. I haven’t yet fathomed how this will all work, exactly, but I know it’s what I want. There are three of us in this relationship.

Declan steps forward, cups my chin in his hand, and kisses me. I part my lips and gasp as he plunges his tongue into my mouth, and lift my hands to grip his arms when he tilts my head back to deepen the kiss. My knees are ready to give way by the time he lifts his mouth from mine.

“So responsive. We’re going to have lots of fun with you, little Ellie Scott.” His voice is rich and dark, like chocolate. His words wash over me, through me, and my panties dampen.

Oh. My. God.

Slowly, deliberately, Declan circles me. He stops behind me and undoes the buttons at the back of my top. Then he tugs it from the waistband of my knee-length pencil skirt. He grasps the hem and raises it. Without being asked, I lift my arms to let him slide the garment off. He ignores my crimson bra for the time being, preferring to undo the button at my left hip and then slowly slide the zipper down to loosen my skirt. He peels the fabric down over my hips and my legs to let it fall in a heap around my ankles. I bless the impulse which took me into Ann Summers’ a few weeks ago, where I purchased a gorgeous matching set of bra and panties in a siren shade of red, and the sleek pearl-coloured stockings. Now, standing before these two beautiful men wearing just those items of lingerie, I feel every bit as beautiful as Fraze suggested.

Declan is still positioned behind me. He kisses the nape of my neck, then unclasps my bra. The cups fall forward, free, and I briefly catch them in my arms before allowing the bra to drop to the floor, too. Fraze’s lip quirks as he peruses my naked breasts, and I wait for him to say something.

His appreciative silence speaks far louder to me than words might have. His eyes darken, the green deepening to near black. My nipples swell and stiffen under his scrutiny, and I know Fraze will not have missed any of the detail of my response. I might have lifted my hands to cover myself, quite overwhelmed by the intensity of his gaze, but Declan’s hand in the middle of my shoulder blades and his murmured command to lean forward breaks the spell.

I bend at the waist and place my hands on the mattress, on either side of Fraze’s feet. I look up and meet his steady gaze as Declan peels my panties away. I step out of them when he taps my ankle.

“I like the stockings. They can stay,” announces Declan, straightening.

When I would have stood upright again also, he places his hand on my back. “No. You stay there. Here’s how this will work. You’ll look at Fraze while I spank you. Don’t look away, and don’t move. You maintain eye contact with Fraze all through your spanking. Then, after, when I put my fingers inside you, you’ll keep on looking at him. You’ll probably come around about then, but still you maintain eye contact. Fraze will watch, he’ll be there, inside your head while you lose control. He and I will be talking, but you’ll say nothing unless one of us asks you a direct question. When I fuck you, you’ll still be looking at Fraze. He’ll be in your head while I’m in your pussy.” He pauses, “Any questions?”

Yes! I have a million questions. But I shake my head. “No. I understand.”

This and That

Censorship

I feel very torn down the middle on a subject that you would think has been, for lack of a better term, stamped “done” and put on a shelf where we don’t have to worry about it ever again.

What am I talking about?

Censorship.

Yes, the big ugly C word and not any other derogatory C words that might pop into your head. Tsk, tsk.

When I read an article this morning and actually saw this statement:

“I believe putting books in Erotica is a result of the FOSTA-SESTA (Anti Sex Trafficking) bill, which recently passed. This bill has hidden items in it like censoring “adult products” which seems to include erotic romance novels.”

Why is this alarming?

Well, first of all, an author who doesn’t categorize her book as erotica, but clearly has it labeled has a contemporary romance in all of their pre-marketing campaigns, but then by a powerhouse, like say Amazon, on release day categorizes it as erotica, that now means reviews can be removed and the authors rank is stripped.

Why does this matter?

Best selling titles sell books. When you, as a buyer, see the #1 status by a name, it makes you look. It makes you want to buy a #1 bestseller vs. a book that only has three reviews. Also, the censor part of the bill now means no promotion on the book site because it is now classified as erotica. Once again, a choice the author didn’t make ahead of time. There is a difference between an author choosing to write erotica and an author who doesn’t. Is the cover too racy? Is the blurb too steamy? What is it that will now move an author’s novel into the erotic classification when, if you read the book, doesn’t even come close to that column.

So, this is alarming part #1.

Alarming part #2 of this thought process, is where I’m torn; the adults only/censorship part of this bill. I thought we were long past the days of burning books, denying people what they could and couldn’t read in this country, um…hello this country just produced a movie trilogy about Mr. Gray and his weird kinks which all started with books that years ago would have only been found perhaps in the back of a bookstore, bottom shelf, wrapped in brown paper.

I’m thrilled to be at point where I can buy what I want to read and read it in whatever format I want to read it in. Print, ebook, audible; all choices are amazing and I commend the publication world for making all of the choices available for every reader.

Where I understand that pornography is easily accessible from any device, I firmly believe that a child is more likely to click on a site and watch it vs. picking up their mommies kindle, start flipping through a book and begin reading it. However, isn’t that the choice of the parent to decide on how to monitor their child’s activity? Isn’t that why there are child protection locks, parental monitoring devices, etc…I don’t condone a child getting ahold of such information, but I also am not here to parent the world, just my own children and that is exhausting enough. When they were little, we had rules, set times, firewalls up the ying yang and most importantly they didn’t have their own smartphones until they older.

Those were our rules, they worked for us and hey, I love my kids. So far they aren’t serial killers and they are still alive so win-win.

I’m know making a lot of assumptions, but I’m also trying to make a point. I believe congress made a lot of assumptions when they included censorship in this bill. I can’t believe we’ve stepped back in time to a place that condones this sort of behavior.

I’m all for ending human trafficking, don’t get me wrong on that, but I seriously don’t make the connection on reading and people being sold into slavery? Perhaps if the world spent less time on evil deeds and more time reading this would be a happier place. It’s a thought.

In conclusion, I suppose sometimes I live under a rock, or more like in the pages of a really good book instead of living in the dredges of the real world. This bill may have been in place for quite some time or it may have come out last week, I admit to not knowing, but if you are like me and didn’t know as well and were wondering why you couldn’t find some fabulous erotic books….then you are now in the know and can feel all the feels right along with me. You’re welcome.

A Stoker Win With a Blake Assist

Rescuing Sadie; A Delta Force Heroes/Masters and Mercenaries Crossover (Series)
by Susan Stoker/Intro by Lexi Blake (Authors)

This review is from: March 28, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Sadie Jennings is the niece of Sean and Grace Taggart from Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series. Sadie is used to domineering men and the strong women who fearlessly love those men. Sadie works for her uncles at McKay-Taggart and has no trouble putting many overbearing Doms in their place back in Dallas, but the moment she literally runs into Chase Jackson she isn’t herself. The confident woman she once was doesn’t know how to act around him. He unnerves her. Not in a bad way, but in a way that makes her yearn. Her life is back in Dallas, and once they catch the crazy psycho who is after her, she has no right to want a man who is settled and comfortable in San Antonio. So why can’t she stop her feelings from evolving for the sexy Captain?

Chase Jackson knew the moment he met Sadie that she was his. He couldn’t begin to understand how he knew, he just did. The thought of her in danger unsettled him every moment of the day and he wouldn’t rest until Jonathan was caught or killed. The man had tried to kidnap and rape Sadie once, and Chase would do everything in his power to make sure that she was never harmed again. With the help of the Deltas at his back and McKay-Taggart if needed, Chase knew he basically had an army at his disposal, then once danger was officially out of the way he could make Sadie his forever.

Rescuing Sadie was everything I’d hoped for. Susan Stoker merged the two worlds of Delta Teams and Masters and Mercs together beautifully. For anyone who is a fan of either series you will find a reason to enjoy this novella.

Sweet, precocious Annie is back from the Delta Force novels and her insight into love and relationships is amazing. And someone correct me, but is Annie just a pint size Ian Taggart? It’s no wonder I love her because Ian is my favorite giant man-child in Masters and Mercs.

And if you love crossover novels check these out:

Excerpt
“Well…” I stop to clear the rasp from my voice. “If there’s no picture of us together, we should take one.”

“Good idea.” He crooks his finger at me, unwittingly sealing his fate. “Come here.”

I put my jacket on downstairs when I thought we were leaving, but I take it off now, simply letting it fall. “I want you in the mayor’s chair.”

His eyes stray to my pooled jacket, then tick to mine. “You what?”

“In the picture. I want you sitting in the chair.”

“Oh. Right.” He slides out the brown leather, high-back executive chair and drops into it. “What about you?”

My bravery slips. Whose wouldn’t? This powerful, gorgeous man sits before me, outlined by the city he’s been elected to run. His thighs are thicker than my waist, his sleeves caught up around his elbows. A strong man. A man of conviction who will not be seduced unless he really wants to be.

Or is driven out of his mind and can’t resist.

Before I can second-guess myself, I move between his outstretched thighs and ease myself onto his lap. “Addison.”

I send him an innocent look over my shoulder. “Yes, Captain?”

His chest rises and falls. Once. Twice. “Take the picture.”

The fact that I’m playing with fire stops psyching me out…and begins to excite me. Maybe it’s the gravel in his tone…or the big fists that come to rest on the desk. No…it’s definitely the way he presses his nose to my hair and inhales. As if I’m not going to notice. But I do. I do and it makes me braver. Makes me throb between my legs.

“The picture, Addison.”

“Sorry.” I lean across the desk where I set my purse, taking my time digging through to find my cell before pulling it out, searching for the camera app. All the while, his muscles bunch beneath me, harder and harder…and that’s when I feel it. His erection lifts under my backside, so thick and glorious, I bite my lip to stop from crying out. I want to, though. I want to sob at the proof that he’s physically attracted to me and at least I have that much.

My hands are shaking as I lift the camera, my instincts screaming at me to grind down. Elijah’s breath is pelting the back of my neck. Other than that he’s completely still, though. But when I flip the camera around to selfie mode and get my first look at his face, there isn’t a jury on the planet that would rule him unaffected. His eyes are closed, nostrils flared, mouth open against my hair. “You’ve got five seconds,” he says. “Take it, or—”
“Or what?” Elijah stands up and takes me with him, my ass pressed to his lap, feet dangling off the ground. As if I weigh nothing more than a child. It only lasts for a couple mind-blowing seconds, though, before he settles me on the ground behind his desk. His heat begins to leave me and I sense my chance slipping away, so I twist around to face him. Still mere inches away from me, he pauses with his head tipped forward, hands flexing at his sides. “We could be more than friends.” After easing myself backwards onto the desk, I snag his necktie and tug him closer, guiding his hips between my open thighs. “Just for tonight.”

His laugh is more like a rough expulsion of air, the scent of bourbon hitting me. “That’s not how things work,” he says, his palms scraping up my thighs, twisting in the hem of my dress. “Goddammit, Addison. You’re not supposed to tempt me like this.”

Tempted. He’s tempted. My blood cells crash together. “I don’t always do what I’m supposed to,” I murmur, leaning up to bring our mouths close, a breath separating them. “If I wasn’t your friend, would you kiss me right now?”

His eyes fasten on my mouth, seeming darker than usual. Predatory. “You felt what you did to my cock, sugar. You know the answer to that.”

Author Bio 

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of ten years and six-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

ONE captive human

TWO battle-scarred alien warriors

THREE Gornian dragons

They won her heart –

Now they’re fighting for her life

Aliya’s fellow crew members from the Luna are all happily mated to hot Tharan twins. But Aartan, the sexy mature doctor who makes her heart race, doesn’t seem interested in her. What’s more, he’s shrouded in mystery. He doesn’t have a mate and no one will tell her what happened to his twin.

When she challenges him to kiss her and then swear he’s not attracted to her, Aliya unleashes the passionate warrior hidden beneath his cool façade. After one night of pleasure more intense than she’s ever known, he tells her they can never be together and sends her away.

But when Bophe, an old enemy from the past, kidnaps Aliya and threatens to have his Gornian dragons tear her limb from limb in the Arena of Tanis Major, she discovers she has not one, but two fierce Tharan warriors who will fight any foe in the Universe to the death to win her freedom.

A note from the author:

Defending Their Mate is a standalone romance in the Tharan Menage series featuring the Luna’s medical officer Aliya Rashadaman, raised by Himalayan mystics, and a pair of battle-scarred warriors with dark secrets in their past. They’re nothing like the heroes from my other books in the series. But I promise you’ll get an unexpected surprise HEA!

Excerpt:

She reached up, caressed his cheek. “I’m sorry. Will you…will you make love to me, Aartan? Please? I’ve waited so long.”

The simple gesture shredded what remained of his resolve. He drew her hand to his mouth, kissed her palm. She sighed and molded her body to his.

Aartan stroked her body, tracing her curves. Gods, she was beautiful! He’d pictured her naked over and over ever since they first met but seeing her, touching her, was far more arousing than any dream. Smooth bronze skin. Lush full breasts, their deep red nipples standing out in tight peaks.

He dipped his head, ran his tongue around one, then drew it into his mouth. Aliya gasped and arched her back. He licked her nipple, then raked his teeth lightly across it. She grabbed his head, ran her fingernails over his scalp. He fastened his mouth over the nipple, sucking hard, and she let out a muffled cry.

He moved his head lower, trailing kisses down her stomach, heading for the alluring patch of dark curls holding the scent of her arousal.

He lifted his head, met her eyes. “I have hungered to taste you since the day we met,” he confessed.

I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.

I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.

He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.

He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.

For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?

Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
Everyone…except him.

New Release – The Choice

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he’s not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he’s got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they’re vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?

Cover Reveal – Revenge of the Pirate Twins

She wants vengeance, he wants her.

Revenge of the Pirate Twins by Brandy Golden

Release Date: April 5, 2018

Twin sisters, Frankie and Kat Fontaine, are willful, undisciplined, highly skilled in weapons, and fiercely determined to find the infamous master of the black pirate ship called the Nemesis. Jacques LaSalle, the owner of that ship, is the blackguard that attacked their father’s merchant vessel, killing their father and abducting their mother. First they will find out what happened to their mother, and then they will have their revenge.

Jacques LaSalle is intrigued and amused when he hears that a beautiful raven haired woman has been scouring the Caribbean for him and intends to challenge him. No one has ever bested Jacques in a fight but he soon finds that Frankie is much more of a challenge than he thought. He intends to claim her for his own if she’ll stop trying to kill him long enough.

Morgan MacAlister is the pirate governor of the new colony, the Pirate’s Hideaway, and his gut instincts tell him that trouble is coming to his island paradise. When the mighty Aphrodite sails into his harbor carrying a set of twin sisters, the gorgeous redheaded sprite of the duo sets his senses on fire.

It’s a hot time on the high seas when the two arrogant men figure out that the twins have the power to rock their worlds. But the girl’s haughty attitude and lack of respect may well earn them several trips over a knee before it’s all said and done.

Romance Sparks Were Ignited

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sparks Fly (Standalone)
by Lauren Runow (Author)

This review is from: March 26, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥

The Island of Cambridge was still living under an age-old law where the Prince had to marry a woman from a certain bloodline by his 25th birthday or he would forfeit his birthright to be the future king. Neither Prince Sage nor Everly Stanley liked the outdated law, yet Everly was one of the girls suitable for the prince to marry. Right from the start Sage saw more to the woman hiding underneath the pomp and circumstance. The lone black painted fingernail upon her ring finger, a sign that she detested the idea of the forced marriage as much as he did, was enough to intrigue Sage the man to pursue her, but he needed to pursue Everly as himself and not under all the pretense of the Prince.

Sage was already under enough pressure to choose the right bride, but he would not make the mistake of choosing one who was only after the throne. He wanted a woman who would challenge him, be his equal, and he had a feeling if he got to know Everly without the title attached they just might be well matched. During the day Sage wore the crown for the public, but at night he ignited a spark to win over Everly’s heart.

Everly never wanted to marry royalty, it was always her mother’s dream. When Everly receives a mysterious text on a night she wants to blow off steam she doesn’t hesitate for long, unsure of how many more nights she will get now that she is in the running to be queen. Experiencing the best night of her life with a mysterious stranger it all comes to a crashing halt when she discovers she was duped by none other than Prince Sage.

How could the man who gave her the best night of her entire life also be the man who wants to take away her future?

Confused and torn she agrees to spend more time with Sage. Not the prince, but the man. The more time she spends with him, the more she grows to like him, even possibly love him, but at the end of the day he is still the prince which is a huge responsibility. What will happen when sparks fly between them?

Sparks Fly is a wonderful story of love, giving back, never giving up, and when you find your true love you never work a day in your life because you work from your heart, you work with passion, you love what you do. I loved this book for reminding me how important that is.
Whether you are a princess or a commoner you can make a difference; Be the change. I happen to have that quote pinned to my wall and tattooed upon my body, it’s one of my all time favorite quotes. To say I was exponentially moved by what Sage and Everly accomplished, I loved every moment of it and had to fight back happy-sappy tears so I could continue reading.
Thank you to every volunteer out in the world doing amazing things and continue to be the change.
Thank you Lauren for reminding me to continue to be the change I want to see in the world.

Snippets

The King’s Vice by Felicity Brandon

“Yield as you have yielded,” he tells me, his brown eyes dancing as he watches my expression. “And then, when you are certain that it is not possible, you will yield to me further.”

The Accused Wife by Jaye Peaches

When it came to lowering her drawers, she faltered.
“Caroline,” he rebuked softly from the other side of the room. “You can trust me to carried out your punishment without ruining all else that our courtship entails.”

Petticoat Tyrant by Vanessa Brooks

He clasped her chin, lifting her face to meet his eye, studying her intently.
“Do you need a spanking, Cassie?” He asked, waiting patiently for her reply, intrigued to hear her answer. She chewed her bottom lip as the silence stretched between them.
“I-I think that might be best,” she finally whispered, her face flushed with embarrassment.

A Scandalous Career by Ashe Barker

She would never forget this, never erase the memory of the utter humiliation she was about to experience in being naked before him and being forced to bend over his knee.
“I see you comprehend the futility of continuing to protest. Shall we continue, Cecily? The sooner you are naked, the sooner we may conclude this matter.”

His Impertinent Wife by Gracie Malling

He was so close to her now that he could feel the heat from her body and could make out every little tremble of her skin. “What happens to naughty wives who lie and curse, Leatitia?”

Getting Ditched Was Amazing

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ditched; A Sports Romance (Standalone)
by RC Boldt (Author)

This review is from: March 25, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Becket Jones is a quarterback for the NFL Jaguars. He’s a one of a kind man looking for his one of a kind woman. He doesn’t do one night stands or easy flings. He’s looking for the real thing, the problem is his life in the spotlight makes it hard for women to see past the fame and fortune. Becket wants a woman to see the sensitive side of him. Yeah, even his teammates give him grief when he voices it out loud. He’s a football player and shouldn’t have a sensitive side, but his mother raised him to be a gentleman. It’s why he’s still single and used his best friend, Emma Jane, for as long as he did. She was his partner for every publicity event, things were perfect, but then she had to go and get married. Oh, who was he kidding, he was happy for her. That left him back to single status and he’s only looking for love.

Ivy Hayes runs Ditched, a company that helps transition a smooth breakup. She doesn’t advertise, she doesn’t need to. Her business is successful by word of mouth and she has become quite good at her job. Why? She is a firm believer that relationships do not work. There is no such thing as love. When Ivy meets Becket Jones she not only doesn’t know who he is, but she is also intrigued by the intelligence of the man. Upfront she tells him she doesn’t do relationships, but Becket doesn’t take no for an answer. He sees a challenge, like a football game to be won, he strikes out to win Ivy’s heart, unfortunately Ivy plays hardball and when the score is all tied up will Becket go into overtime or will Ivy call game and leave Becket ditched?

Becket Jones – I have been anticipating his story since He Loves Me…Knox. Becket is sweet, caring, doting, the perfect book boyfriend emotionally, add on top of that and he is also ripped and rich.

Big sigh.

I’ve been crushing on him since he first appeared and can say that if Becket wasn’t fictional, I would have been stalking every social media account he owned. RC Boldt did not disappoint when she promoted Becket to his own book.

After wallowing in a Ditched hangover and trying my best to bask in the Becvy…Ivket…ok, the name melding thing totally doesn’t work for Becket and Ivy, but my point is, Ditched has it all and you will want to bask in it:

Great book boyfriend
Strong heroine
Sizzling chemistry that builds until it blazes hot
Intense plot line
Excellent secondary characters
Follow up on prior characters
Emotions that pull at your heart, funny bone, exasperation, and cheer with delight

Ditched is a total win, can’t put down, fall in love effortless read. (Although Becket may disagree with the effortless part.)

Smitten With the Royals

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cheeky Royal; Royals Undercover Duet (Series)
by Nana Malone (Author)

This review is from: March 23, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Cheeky Royal begins with Cheeky Prince, a short prequel to Cheeky Royal. A look into the royal life of Sebastian Winston, the crown prince to the Winston Isles. As a young boy Sebastian is allowed time to play, like any ordinary child, but even he knows he lives the life of no ordinary boy. Soon he is to be sent off to boarding school where he will be schooled in everything he needs to know so he can one day take over the kingdom.

In Cheeky Royal we meet a cocky prince who is more fond of sating his own needs vs. caring about those of the kingdom. We also get to meet Penny, the young girl who used to play with the crown prince as a child who is now a young woman trying to find her own way among the pressure of joining the family business; serving in the royal guard.

Penny refers to herself as Calamity Penny; she is klutzy, a screw up, and constantly making the wrong choices when it comes to protecting diplomats who visit the Island.
After a final screw up, she is basically reprimanded to desk duty, which is no better than a prison sentence to a free spirit like Penny. When the King himself asks Penny to perform a special task; bring the crown prince back home, she has little choice but to say yes (although she does have a moment of insanity where she does something very Penny-like, but I’ll let you enjoy that.)

Sebastian has been MIA for months, on his own personal mission to find his half brother and sister so they can step into his place and he can step down from duty. He longs for nothing but to be free from the obligation that the crown brings, but he can’t do that unless he can convince his long-lost, half siblings to come back and step into his place. He’s running out of time since his birthday is approaching and he is next in line to receive a place in the Regents Council. A powerful seat that is his birthright unless he can recind it.
When a sexy new neighbor moves in across the hall from him, Sebastian finds it hard to keep his sights on the prize. It’s the first time in months he’s lost his concentration. Something so familiar about the mystery neighbor calls to him, reminds him of things he cannot have, but he also can’t seem to stay away.

Penny finds the prince, that part was easier than she expected. What she didn’t count on was how hard and fast she’d fall for him. She knew he was charming, good looking, and a womanizer, but she didn’t know he was smart, kind, and a man she could actually care for. Her assignment from the king was to keep him close, but exactly how close he was meaning. The longer she spends time with Sebastian the harder she is finding it define closeness.

Cheeky Royal is charming and Calamity Penny is adorable in all her awkwardness. Penny clicks with everyone, her best friend Ariel is funny, her chemistry with Sebastian is hot, and even her conversations with her mother are adorable. Cheeky Royal does end with a cliffhanger and picks up in Cheeky King. I’m dying to know what happens with this couple as their chemistry is off the charts, so stay tuned.

Brit rockers hit the US for the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival

Sam MacAvoy’s a British rocker who has charted consistently at number one all over Europe since following in his brother, Julian’s footsteps. Now Sam’s been invited to Vegas to debut at the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival and he’s brought his red hot band, Style Strike with him.

Ashley Jacobs can’t stand musicians, or over-the-top egotistical men. Somehow she finds herself in amongst dozens of them when she agrees—against her better judgment—to take a three day summer job at the Festival.

Paul Gray, Style Strike’s bass player and the star of his own social media channel, has women falling at his feet. What he can’t quite understand is why his charm isn’t working on the attractive and curvaceous, Ashley. She’s not interested in his social media stardom, nor does she care that he could have any woman he wants at the rock festival.

Or does she?

Amazon US: http://amzn.to/2FMUvCE

 

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—unless it follows you home.

All Ashley Jacobs wants to do is forget about the Get Rocked! In Vegas Festival and get on with her life. Unfortunately, the one night she spent in the arms of

British band, Style Strike’s bad boy bass player, Paul Gray makes that simple wish impossible. She’s brought home more than memories. What should have been a fun fling before she settled into her orderly life has gone awry. To her horror, Ashley’s entire life is turned upside down when she discovers that she’s pregnant. She’s literally about to be left holding the baby.

Paul Gray’s never forgotten that night in Vegas with the woman who wanted nothing to do with a rock star. Style Strike’s US tour has gone from strength to strength and his social media star is on the rise. Paul finds himself surrounded by everything he’s worked so hard to achieve. His life is awash with women, fame and fortune—but all he can think about is the sensual woman who walked away from him that night in Vegas.

Knowing the tour’s about to hit her hometown, Ashley makes the sensible decision to contact Paul. He needs to be told about the baby, doesn’t he?

What other’s are saying about The Good Doctor:

“This story is sure to pull at your heart strings. Domestic violence is an ugly thing, but Andi Jaxon took something horrific and told a beautiful story. You can’t help but fall for Adam and everything he does for Isabel and Sophie.” –Courtney Hagel-Swinson

“I read the blurb and it intrigued me. What I didn’t expect was to be in tears right from the beginning and I knew that I was going to need comfort food because it was going to be one of those stories.” – 1-Click Addict Support Group

“A beautiful story about finding yourself and finding help, love and happily ever after in a place you weren’t even looking. This story deals with a very difficult subject. Abuse is one thing that should never be tolerated but its so hard to walk away from. I can attest to this. Waling away and starting again is the hardest thing you will ever do but it will also be the best start to the rest of your life. Watch out for triggers but so worth the read. An emotional rollercoaster that ends in an HEA.” – Teresa

“I love this book! It runs you through every emotion. And makes you realize that there are good people everywhere.” –Jennifer Miller Molstead

I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee until it’s late enough to drink too much wine and is sexually frustrated for your freedom. I never thought I would be a writer, it was never an interest of mine. But when the voices start in and won’t let you sleep, you write so they STFU and leave you alone for a while. If you see me online, I’m probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids. I’m sarcastic, love a dirty alpha male, and love to laugh.

From New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr comes a brand new powerful standalone in the Connections Series.

We each had a plan.
We knew what we were doing.
Until love got in our way.

Him:
The first time I laid eyes on Gemma Ross, she belonged to another man. He literally owned her. I hated the very thought.
I wanted her to be mine.

Even though I knew I shouldn’t, I couldn’t help but watch the way she swayed her hips when she walked in my direction, raise a brow when she pretended not to notice me, get excited over the way her skin prickled whenever she got close.
I turned her on.

Thinking about her like that wasn’t part of the plan. Getting addicted to the way she arched beneath me wasn’t part of the plan. Caring about what happened to her was definitely not part of the plan.
F*ck me.

Now my plan has to be altered. I can’t allow her to get caught in the crossfire. She has to leave, but she insists on staying. She has a secret—a reason she allows herself to belong to that obnoxious prick. She won’t tell me what she’s hiding unless I tell her why I need to know.
I can’t do that.

There’s another way to get what I want—a little game of cat and mouse. And I’m a really good hunter. Her being gone is for the best. This isn’t love. It can’t be.

Or that’s what I keep telling myself.

Her:
The first time Caleb Holt strode into the room I was certain I knew his type. A man too gorgeous for his own good, he was sexy, brooding, and so full of himself, I thought he could easily be fooled.
I was wrong.

Those brilliant green eyes followed me everywhere. I swore he could see into my soul, read my determination, uncover my secrets with just one glance.
It worried me.

I should have stayed away from him, but I couldn’t fight the searing desire that flowed through my veins and the burning passion that coated my skin.
I didn’t really want to.

Before him, I had a plan to get back what was taken from me. The cost was irrelevant. Now I’m not sure I can sell my soul to the devil because I fear it belongs to him. The problem is he has a plan of his own, and I can’t risk his plan taking priority over mine.

Not even for him.
Not even for love.
So game on.

Our passion burns hotter than a wildfire.

My life with my husband is what dreams are made of. We have a love that knows no bounds and nothing compares to being married to him.

There’s only one thing missing.

A baby.

Every month I hold that white stick in my hand and hope beyond hope it turns positive. It’s been five long years but today that tiny little plus sign finally appears. Now everything with River Wilde is perfect, and nothing can change that.

Nothing.

Life is sweeter than any fantasy.

Her lips are like sugar. Her body is my temple. Her soul belongs to me.

And now that she’s having my baby, happiness is all I see when I look at her.

That is until it isn’t.

I never imagined a short ride to the beach just hours after discovering we were pregnant would turn dark and dangerous. That the ghosts of our past had somehow wormed their way out of their bottomless black hole in order to reign down utter chaos on our lives.

With everything I hold close to my heart on the line, I’ll do whatever it takes to protect what’s mine.

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Dahlia London.

Nothing.

Blurb:

I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.

I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.

He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.

He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.

For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?

Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
Everyone…except him.

EXCERPT:

Sadie

There was a dominance in his body language I couldn’t deny.

Heeding his invitation, I stopped before him. He stood and his towering height overwhelmed me, but when he pulled the empty barstool out and grinned at me, I felt electrically charged. “Hi.”

Slowly, I climbed onto it. For some reason, I couldn’t stop my knees from wobbling. “Hi,” I tried to respond, but it sounded more like a squeak.

The way he was looking at me made me feel like I was the only person in the room. I opened my mouth to say something more but found no words. Instead, my breath hissed out as a slow leak.

What was I doing?

I should have been running in the other direction. I didn’t have time for careless flirting. I had a job to do. One I knew I would never really be able to do.

Settling myself on the luxurious white leather stool, I crossed one leg over the other. As soon as I did, his heavy stare rolled over my face and then down my body. It felt like he was surveying every inch of me.

Suddenly, I wasn’t cold anymore. Heat roared through me like a fire being doused with gasoline.

The way he was looking at me was anything but subtle.

He was anything but subtle.

I didn’t care. I didn’t want subtle. I wanted bold.

A flash of thunder cut through the window, illuminating his face. His stunning features. Hard jaw. High cheekbones. Strong forehead. Full and curved mouth. Edible lips. And those eyes, they grabbed me and wouldn’t let go—like he saw the blackness inside me and wanted to add some light.

Ridiculous, I knew.

That smug grin he was wearing spread across his lips as he sat back down. The movement caused his dark hair to flip forward over his eyes. He pushed it away, and the gesture broke the trance I was in. Thick-lashed eyes shined as brilliant as the brightest lights I’d ever seen and amusement seemed to sparkle in their dark color.

All of a sudden I felt dizzy. Lost. Reborn. Taken back in time.

He was Eros.

I was Aphrodite.

He was Cupid.

I was Venus.

I let my bag drop to my feet beside my suitcase.

He twisted in my direction. “Crazy weather,” he said in a voice that was deep, cultured, sexy.

It made me shiver.

Half a nervous laugh snuck out of me. “You’re not kidding.”

Out of nowhere, the bartender set two heavy crystal glasses of amber-colored liquid in front of stock-photo guy and myself, and it shocked me. I hadn’t ordered anything, most especially not whiskey.

“Should I add this to your tab?” the bartender directed, and not toward me.

“Please,” stock-photo guy answered.

Embarrassment washed over me. He was with someone and I had misread him completely.

Hopping to my feet, I felt unsteady in my heels. “I’m so sorry. I should have asked if this seat was taken. I’ll get out of your way.”

Moving fast, he rose to his full height. He was close. So close. Floored by over six feet of hotness, his scent hit me immediately. Something manly, with a hint of the ocean. I took a moment to breathe it in and tried not to wince when the pain in my ribs struck.

His strong hands steadied my hips. “No, don’t leave. The drink is for you.”

And I felt. Felt his touch race down my hips, knot in my stomach, and make my toes curl.

If he was Cupid, I’d been struck by his arrow.

My gaze darted up, up, up, and when our eyes locked, my pulse started to race. “I can’t. I’m waiting for a flight,” I stupidly said.

He was a bad idea.

Staying was a bad idea.

This whole thing was a bad idea—and yet it already felt so good.

He dipped his head, those dark eyes going liquid with a heat I felt between my thighs. “In case you haven’t looked at the monitors, no one is going anywhere right now. All the planes are grounded until morning.”

I laughed, and it wasn’t an act. “I know that,” I replied. “What I meant was that drinking is a bad idea when I have such a long night ahead of me.”

His eyes flickered to my lips before returning to mine. “Exactly. It’s going to be a very long night, which is why drinking seems like a really good idea.”

No alarm bells rang. Instead, I smiled. I couldn’t stop smiling.

“Sit,” he said, moving back to his stool.

For a moment I forgot everything and allowed myself to get lost in the darkest, bluest eyes I’d ever seen. Without thinking anything through, I sat back down. “Maybe just one.”

The look he gave me screamed sinful bad boy.

“Reading Hotlanta?” I asked, pointing to his bag.

With a shake of his head, he blew my comment off. “More like reading crap.”

Okay, I had no response to that, and luckily I didn’t need one.

He lifted his glass. “To passing time,” he toasted.

The way he looked at me when he spoke made my pulse jump and nipples pop. Ignoring my body’s reaction to him, I lifted my own. “To passing time,” I repeated, clinking his glass.

I didn’t really have time.

I had a job to do.

I couldn’t stay with him.

Could I?

I was stranded at the airport, after all.

I lowered my glass and sighed.

“Tough day?” he asked after taking more like a gulp of his whiskey.

“Yes,” I responded truthfully.

He took another long sip of his drink and let his eyes linger on my thighs. “Want to talk about it?” he asked.

In that moment I was no longer Sarah, the lonely rich wife or the wandering mistress or the high-priced call girl I had been sent here to be. I wasn’t acting. I didn’t want to. I was just being me. Albeit, a well dressed-up version of myself, but still me.

Following his lead, I practically guzzled the potent liquor. Once I’d drained it, I figured why not talk. Setting my empty glass down, I told him, “I had to make a decision today and I have no idea if I made the right one.”

In truth, I already knew it was the wrong one.

Being here was wrong.

Being with him was wrong.

And yet, talking to him felt right.

I shouldn’t have come here to steal what wasn’t mine, no matter the reason. It wasn’t me. I didn’t earn what these men had. And I hated myself for even thinking about taking from them.

It was then I looked into his eyes and saw that very familiar feeling of loathing. Those dark eyes I thought had been filled with mirth were actually brooding.

What did he hate himself for?

I wanted to know.

Was I a way for him to forget? If so, did it matter? Either way, I wanted to be the one to ease his pain.

And I had no idea why.

He downed the rest of his glass and signaled the bartender. “You know,” he said, “sometimes I think the only way to get by in this world is to step off for a while.”

I glanced at his bags on the floor. “Is that what you’re doing? Stepping off for a while?”

The bartender placed the entire bottle of Macallan Rare Cask in front of us, and hot photo-guy picked it up right away. “Something like that,” he answered as he poured. “My ex-fiancée got married yesterday, and I was there.”

“Ouch,” I said.

He nodded and finished pouring. “Yeah, hence the heavy drinking. So what’s your story?”

It felt wrong to lie, so I didn’t. I just didn’t tell the whole truth. “I was recently fired.”

“Ouch,” he offered back with a wicked grin and set the bottle down to hold out his hand. That strong, confident, dominant hand. “I’m Sundance.”

I raised a brow. “As in Butch Cassidy?”

“The very same. It’s a nickname, actually.”

Sundance.

Hot name.

I liked it.

I took his offered hand, and the electric current that ran up my arm was stronger than the alcohol flowing through my veins. “Sarah.” The lie slipped out, and I couldn’t take it back. Then again, I didn’t think it really mattered. “And stepping off for a while sounds like a really good idea.”

He leaned closer and lifted his glass. “So, Sarah, what are we going to do to make that happen?”

My brow lifted curiously. “I’m open to suggestions,” I said, the alcohol taking over where reason should have stepped in.

He drained his drink. “Are you?”

The way those two words came out sounded like an invitation. I was in the middle of downing my glass when I lowered it. “Yes, I am. I mean, within reason, of course.”

“Good to know.” He tossed me a panty-melting grin and poured a little more into his glass.

“Why? What do you have in mind?” Ignoring my one-drink rule, I drank a little more, knowing exactly what he had in mind. It was written all over his face—in the way his eyes seemed to have turned the darkest shade of blue, the way his sinful mouth curved ever-so-much, and the way he leaned in even closer to me.

When he was a breath away, he raised the sexiest brow in answer. “We could take this somewhere a little more private.”

I smiled back. A silent, “Yes, I’m interested.”

“One rule,” he cautioned.

Now I raised the brow. “Rules already? I don’t even know you,” I joked.

“And that’s the way I like it,” he deadpanned.

In that moment I knew what he wanted.

To be anonymous.

To be free.

And to get fucked.

I wanted all of those things, too.

He went on. “We don’t talk about our lives,” he murmured, kissing behind my ear.

I allowed my head to lull back, silently agreeing to his rule because even though he couldn’t possibly know it was the only way I could be with him, it was.

His teeth nipped at the sensitive skin of my throat, and I knew that somehow I had gone from the one doing the preying to the one being preyed on.

And I was okay with that.

Maybe stepping off for a while was exactly what I needed.

New Release – Long Shot

Title: Long Shot
Author: Kennedy Ryan
Genre: Basketball Romance
Release Date: March 22, 2018

Read the ENTIRE first chapter here → http://bit.ly/LongShotChapterRev

A FORBIDDEN LOVE SET IN THE EXPLOSIVE WORLD OF THE NBA…Think you know what it’s like being a baller’s girl?
You don’t.
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love – fool’s gold.
Now there’s a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA’s brightest stars.
Fine. Forbidden.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won’t let me go.

*Author’s Note: There are aspects of this story that may be sensitive for some readers.

“This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It’s a must read. It’s a STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don’t hold your breath, this story will steal it from you.” – J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”
            I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.
            “Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.
I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.
And I do.
I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.
He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.
Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.

Teaser/Excerpt – Six of the Best Anthology; His Reluctant Bride

His Reluctant Bride by Katie Douglas.

only found in Six of the Best Anthology

RELEASE DATE: MARCH 24

Excerpt:

“What are you doing? How dare you?” she squeaked, as he peeled back layer after layer of underskirts, until finally he had exposed her knickers. She tried to wriggle free, but it was impossible.

“I have given you every opportunity to do the right thing without needing to be corrected like a wayward schoolgirl. You have taken every opportunity to manipulate me and lie to me, to preserve your ignorance of something you might well enjoy. As your husband, do you think I would deceive you or harm you? Do you really believe that is the character of the man you married?” He pressed the back of the hairbrush against the crest of her bottom and she gasped in horror, suddenly afraid that he might spank her.

“Answer me!” He brought the hairbrush down hard on her sit-spot and she squealed, more from shock than pain.

“N-no, sir,” she replied, trying to keep up with the evening’s new developments. He landed the hairbrush again, and its sting resonated through her rear.

“You have not given me one single chance to prove to you that I will be a good husband. You pre-empt everything I do and manipulate me at every turn. This ends, now.” He brought the hairbrush down again and again, peppering her bottom with very hard swats at a rapid pace, until every inch of her derriere felt as though it burned and stung at the same time.

“Please, I can’t take this!” she replied breathlessly, shaking her head as she felt tears threatening her eyes.

“There you go again, second-guessing your husband’s judgement. Have a care,” he replied, not relenting on the spanking until he’d given her at least another dozen swats. When he finally stopped, she began to cry, from the shame of being spanked by her husband, the humiliation of him finding out her secret tricks, and the pain of the hairbrush landing on her bottom so many times. He left her over his knee, gently rubbing her back as she cried.

“Please,” she sniffled at length, “I’m sorry. I want to do better. I am so afraid of it, though.”

“And who is supposed to eradicate your fears?” Andrew asked gently.

“You.”

“Can I do that if you lie to me instead of telling me your true feelings?”

“No.”

He placed his hand on her bottom and she inhaled sharply. The residual tingles in her bottom were re-ignited by his warm hand, and now the after-effect of the spanking seemed to awaken something within her.

Excerpt:

I see something in her eyes now, something encouraging. It is the first glint of curiosity.

“Syrene, my beautiful Syrene. Let me show you.” As I speak, I reach for the hem of her gown and pull it up. I can feel her tremble. I can feel her tense. I hold my breath, fearing that she will bolt. But she stands still. I put my hand on the curve of her hip, and my cock bobs at the feel of her soft, bare skin. I slide it down to the front of her thigh, then to the inside, higher and higher until my hand meets tight, downy curls. I slip one finger into the seam of her pussy, dragging it upward until I find the fleshy hood at the apex of her cleft. I slide my other arm around her waist as I touch the hard knot of her clit, moving my finger in slow, circular motions.

Syrene’s eyes open wide. She rises on her tiptoes, emitting a little “oh” of surprise. I tighten my grip as she begins to wriggle.

“Oh,” she says again.

“Let yourself feel,” I say. “Let me take care of you. Let me give you the pleasure that is your birthright as a woman.”

She is panting in my grasp and moves her hands up to my chest as if to push me away. Her pupils are dilated in excitement, her full lips parted. But she is on the cusp of resisting, and I know this is because she has been conditioned to deny her own needs. I must take control, and I do. I begin to move my finger back and forth, manipulating, teasing. I am rewarded by a surge of wetness, the sweet dew of her first arousal. I sink down to my knees, grasping her hips. I cannot stop myself now, and I sense if I do, she would flee. I must take her over the edge.

I hold her tightly as my tongue dances through the seam of her pussy, lapping velvety petals blooming with arousal. I lathe her aggressively, hungrily, and she cries out. Her hands, which had been pulling my hair, now grasp it, and to my sudden surprise I feel her not pushing me away but pulling me to her. I find the little nub of her pleasure, fully emerged now, and seize it in a gentle sucking bite.

Syrene’s moan becomes a wild scream of pleasure. I grab her round ass, squeezing as I lick and suck and feast on her sweet pussy. I feel her tense and shudder with the force of her first orgasm, but I keep my face pressed tightly against her until the shudder slows to a gentle spasm. Her knees buckle as I stand, and I catch her in my arms and lay her on the bed.

I slide my body over hers.

“What was that?” she asks.

“That was pleasure’s peak.” I smile down at her. “And it was my distinct honor to guide you there.” I smooth her hair away from her face. “Did you like it?”

“Can you do it again?”

I almost laugh from happiness.

“I can do it as many times as you would like me to.”

Synopsis

Everly wasn’t excited over her impending meeting with the enigmatic Prince Sage. Being one of only four women from whom the Prince gets to choose in marriage was never something she valued. Her goal was to politely and elegantly remove herself from a forced wedding due to long standing traditions. Handsome Prince or not, she won’t marry for anything but love.

Once Sage proceeds to the next candidate, Everly finally feels she can move forward with her life. On her own terms. That is, until she receives a mysterious request, asking her to solve a riddle, taking her on a night she’ll never forget.

A fervent adventure ensues, and attraction builds as the excitement of the night unfolds. Sparks fly in more ways than one just as she finds out who’s stealing her heart.

New Release – Protecting Bobbi

Protecting Bobbi by Kat Mizera is AVAILABLE NOW!
Part of the Susan Stoker Kindle World, this crossover novella is now live!
Amazon ➤ http://amzn.to/2GwIdeS
FREE with #KindleUnlimited

After the unexpected death of his sister, Ron Marshall is wholly unprepared to take custody of his two-year-old niece. Between his classified position as a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Force Recon unit and his role as a single father, he hasn’t thought about women or sex in the six months since he got custody. However, his niece’s new pre-school teacher breaks down all of his defenses, especially since they have a history.

Single mom Bobbi Granger has struggled since the death of her husband, but when her high school crush walks in with his niece, things may be changing for the better. She’s not particularly thrilled about dating another Marine—especially one who goes deep undercover at a moment’s notice—but she can’t deny the pull she feels for him.

When Ron is called away for an unexpectedly long mission and trouble finds Bobbi, will he get back in time to help or will he lose his second chance with the woman he’s been thinking about since high school?

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
