Review – Miss Apprehended by Miranda Elaine and Amie Knight

54601841

Miss Apprehended; The Coletrain Twins #1 
(A novella within a series)

by: Miranda Elaine and Amie Knight

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A novella that packs a lot of steam and zany times between the pages.

Miss Apprehended is a quick read with instalove between Jake and Millie and lots of crazy antics between all of the characters. What comes across as a flighty Millie and an overbearing alpha Jake really are just two people who need each other in the grand scheme of things. While Millie could use a firm hand to calm some of her flighty ways, Jake could also use a little crazy to mix up his otherwise boring bounty hunter life.

While Miss Apprehended seems a bit over the top at times, it is just the right antidote when I’ve been reading a lot of heavy lately. So if you like a crazy, quick read then this book is right up your alley.

Synopsis:

I’ve got ninety-nine problems and all of them begin and end with the Coletrain twins.

Especially Millie Coletrain.

I don’t know whether to kiss her or spank her.

Either way, she’s mine.

Warning: This is an erotic novella with laugh-out-loud ridiculousness, insta-love, a smart-mouthed heroine, and an over-the-top alpha bail bondsman.

**Miss Apprehended and Miss Understood were previously published under the titles Jail House Rock and Wild Thing by Liberty Laine, but have been updated for re-release.

Cover Reveal – If He Only Knew by Jennifer Marie

COVER REVEAL
Title: If He Only Knew
Author: Jennifer Marie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Seven Rue
Release Date: September 16, 2020

BLURB

Luca and Finley were best friends and have been secretly in love with each other for years.

Now, on the verge of leaving, Finley is afraid to share how she feels, even though everything inside her screams that she should.

Despite being young, she has always known they were destined to belong to each other.

Luca’s sexy smirk and genuine heart are enough to brighten her days, but what she loves most is how he can speak to her with just a look.

Finley O’Brien and Luca Ferraro have been inseparable since meeting in second grade. They have secretly longed for each other for just as long but have been too afraid to cross the line that could potentially destroy everything.

With Luca’s departure looming closer, it pushes them to make a choice; finally admit their more than friendly feelings or walk away from what could be true love.

If being honest about their affections was difficult, the curve ball that is thrown their way will flip their world upside down. They say true love can conquer all, but will Finley and Luca stay true when their bond is being tested at every turn?

New Release – Black Skies Riviera by Catherine Wiltcher

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Black Skies Riviera
Author: Catherine Wiltcher
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2020
BLURB

They call this place the Billionaires’ Playground.
I, Aiden Knight, staked my claim the minute I arrived.
I crossed every line.
I painted their Rococo ceilings with blood.
Now my casino is the hottest church in town,
And vice is the only confession required.
My house.
My rules.
Until the past comes calling with an offer I can’t refuse:
One week to seduce and break her…
For the names of the men who killed my father.

Issa Dubova is the queen of cloudy diamonds:
She’s a hard truth concealed beneath a pall of lies.
I’m an Armani black suit of spades:
Determined to bury both her and my demons.
I never asked to see the shape of her heart.
I never asked for her to fill the blank spaces of mine.

But the mafia wants her secrets.
I wasn’t the first she betrayed.
And Issa? Sweet, not-so-innocent Issa?
She’s gone and left me with a debt no sinner can pay.

AUTHOR BIO

Catherine Wiltcher is a bestselling author of ten dark romance novels, a former TV producer, and a self-confessed alpha addict. Her writing is best described as sinfully sexy, and her characters always fall hard and deep for one another.

She lives in the UK with her husband and two young daughters. If she ever found herself stranded on a desert island, she’d like a large pink gin to keep her company. Cillian Murphy wouldn’t be a bad shout either…

Series: Project Arma #2
Author: Nyssa Kathryn
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 19, 2020
BLURB

She thought he’d be happy to see her…

…but all she found was anger.

Why did Eden hate her?

The memory of that day haunted her. Eden told her to stay at the safe house while his team went on their mission. Then she found out he was being setup. Shylah didn’t have a choice, she had to do something.

It was a risk.

And she paid dearly.

Eden and his team had aborted just in time. They lived to fight another day. Fourteen months later and Eden was surviving. There was only one question on his mind, who had betrayed them?

Could it have been Shylah?

In the complex world of international espionage and war, love is often a causality. What will it take for her to conquer the mistrust and win him back?

You’ll adore this military romance, because the truth can be hard to believed when all you’ve know are lies.

Get it now.

EXCERPT

“Just say it, Eden. I mean, you’ve been saying it for over a year to all your buddies, so how about now? Project Arma. You think I was part of the project. That I knowingly injected people with experimental drugs that could kill them. That I killed tons of soldiers while figuring out the perfect super soldier concoction. Getting close to you was part of my evil plan. Tonight, I must have been meeting my partner to discuss how we were going to trick you this time.” Standing, Shylah crossed her arms. “Is that correct? Did I sum up everything you believe about me, Eden?”
Pushing his chair back, Eden stood in front of Shylah, towering over her. For the first time since she arrived in Marble Falls, his size didn’t intimidate her. There was nothing this man could do to hurt her that was more painful than his low opinion.
“If you didn’t hide things from me, I wouldn’t have to guess what the hell was going on.”
Done with the conversation, Shylah marched to the door and pulled it open. “Well, you guessed wrong.”
Eden remained where he was for a moment, leading Shylah to wonder if he would leave. She knew full well that if Eden didn’t want to go, then she wouldn’t be able to force him. Then he started moving toward the door. Shylah didn’t know whether to be hurt or happy that he was leaving.
“Did it ever occur to you that the thing I’m hiding is to protect you? To protect us until I’m ready to share?”
Stopping in his tracks, Eden turned his head. Some of the anger had faded, and resignation shined through. “There is no us, Shylah. You’ve made damn sure of that.”
Then he was gone.
Shutting the door behind him, Shylah leaned against it and scrunched her eyes shut. The pain in her chest was crippling. Was that true? Had she damaged them with her secrets to the point of no return?
She had believed that they were strong enough to get through anything. Maybe they’d always been more fragile than she’d thought.
