Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I completely connected with this funny, done-with-the-rat-race book!

Wow, could I empathize with Bea!! I’ve run that wheel of a rat race, tried to impress bosses, co-workers, everyone around me for years, only to reach my stress limits just like Bea. I LOVED joining her in Credence while she veged on her bed binging shows she’s missed that everyone’s talked about, day drinking, not showering, and completely checking out of life while she just needed to recharge on life. This is something so completely relatable and I loved her for being herself.

Then the story just got better….

Bea has a major meltdown and this is the point when she meets the yummy, delicious Austin, who-yes, he’s a decade younger-you go girl!!, who is a cop in town, but even after her meltdown he still manages to knock those dirty socks off her feet!! Well…it takes a few dates, but you get my drift.

In a nutshell, Bea has a wonderful journey back to discovering herself and who she wanted to be after giving up all of those rats. This book is fun, dirty, and a little life affirming. Plus, I always love returning to the town of Credence, but this book is a complete standalone and can be read without previously sampling any of Annie’s pies.

Synopsis:
Sometimes you gotta toss your whole life into a burning dumpster to find what’s most important…

Beatrice Archer has always done everything she’s supposed to —worked her ass off, ignored her non-existent personal life, and kept her mouth shut. Now she’s over it. The rat race, respectability…the underwire bras. She’s taking her life back. Starting with moving to Nowhere, Colorado to live life on her own terms.

Now Bea gives exactly zero forks. Beer for breakfast. Sugar for everything else. Baggy sweats and soft cotton undies FTW. Then a much younger and delightfully attractive cop is called to deal with her flagrant disregard for appropriate clothing outside the local diner (some folks just don’t appreciate bunny slippers) and Bea realizes there’s something missing from her little decathlon of decadence…and he might be the guy to help her out.

When it comes to breaking rules, Officer Austin Cooper is surprisingly eager to assist. He’s charming, a little bit cowboy, and a whole lot sexy. But Bea’s about to discover that breaking the rules has consequences. And all of the cherry pies in Colorado can’t save her from what’s coming…

Cover Reveal - 2022, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Indecent Proposal by Erika Wilde

Release Date: January 19

It wasn’t every day that I was shot at by a sniper. But this was now my life, being hunted by someone my (dead) ex-fiancé had crossed. They thought I had something he’d taken, and they weren’t going to stop until they had what they wanted.

I went to the best security company around, but what I ended up with was a bodyguard who was as hot and tempting as he was grumpy and annoyingly bossy. Vaughn reluctantly took me on as a client, despite my inability to pay, and put me in his own personal safehouse with a set of rules to follow. 

But a few of those rules?  Yeah, I broke them just because I knew it would provoke him. What I didn’t anticipate was the kind of punishment he decided to dole out . . . and it wasn’t long before we went from enemies, to lovers, and an indecent proposal was struck between us.

We both swore it was all temporary, but the closer Vaughn gets to finding out who is after me and why, I realize walking away from this man might be much harder than I’d ever imagined.  

AUTHOR NOTE:  This book will only be available during the pre-order period at iBooks, Kobo, Nook, and GooglePlay (it will be available on Amazon permanently).  Once the book goes live, it will be pulled down at these other retailers and put into Kindle Unlimited, a subscription service exclusive to Amazon, so be sure to pre-order your copy!

Meet Erika Wilde
Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name? 

 

As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance.   However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with.   That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

 

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage.  The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

 

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates.  Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!

Cover Reveal – Villain Era by Luna Pierce

Release Date: December 9
He was once our enemy, but now he’s my bodyguard.

After our rival gives up the throne as my dying wish, my men trust him to keep a close watch on me and protect me from any danger that may come my way.

He keeps me safe, somehow understanding the darkness that lurks inside of me. He knows it cannot be caged, and he allows me the ability to set it free when we’re alone.

The things I’ve done don’t hold a candle to the things I will do.

I have everything I could possibly want…three sexy, attentive, mafia boyfriends. All of us are under one roof, and they spoil and provide for my every desire.

But why do I have a nagging feeling that something—or someone—is still missing from my life?

Am I selfish for being insatiable when I already have more than most?

When our true enemies, the ones we thought we eliminated, come back to finish what they started, I worry I may not be able to escape death this time around.

I end up sharing a secret with the one man I shouldn’t let in—a secret that holds the power to ruin us all.

I may have crossed a line, but whether my men like it or not, this vixen is entering her villain era.
