Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – THESE THORN KISSES by Saffron A. Kent

 
 
 

Release Date: December 7


Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Forbidden to Love by Siobhan Davis

Forbidden To Love, an all-new dark, forbidden romance set in the same world as Condemned to Love by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is coming September 30th and we have the gorgeous cover!

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

Leo risked everything for the one woman he can never have. He doesn’t regret it. It saved Natalia from a life of hell, but his actions set her on a different course.

One that doesn’t involve him.

Years have passed, and his feelings remain the same. Yet he keeps his distance, dedicating himself to his new role as underboss to Bennett Mazzone, while the love of his life is married to another man.

Until a twist of fate puts Natalia in his path again, and this time, he is powerless to resist.

Pre-order coming soon!

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

New Release – Poisoned Paradise by Lucy Smoke

𝐏𝐎𝐈𝐒𝐎𝐍𝐄𝐃 𝐏𝐀𝐑𝐀𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐄 a Forbidden, Enemies to Lovers, Taboo, Dark Romance by Lucy Smoke is LIVE!!

𝐏𝐎𝐈𝐒𝐎𝐍𝐄𝐃 𝐏𝐀𝐑𝐀𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐄 
❝𝒯𝓇𝓊𝓉𝒽 𝒾𝓈 𝒻𝒶𝓇 𝒸𝓇𝓊𝑒𝓁𝑒𝓇 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓃 𝒻𝒾𝒸𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃…❞

𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒘
Six years ago, I made a mistake. The worst mistake I could have ever possibly made. I fell in love with the wrong person and … I told him.

Ryan’s always been with me ever since I can remember. It’s been the two of us—side by side. Through every new beginning, every new ‘family’, and every failure. Is it any wonder that the love I had for him turned into something different—something deeper? Something utterly rotten? And is it any wonder that he hates me for it now?

𝑹𝒚𝒂𝒏
I’m a damaged soul, and she’s the only thing that’s ever held me together. But the one woman I want is the one woman I can never have.

She thinks I hate her for her confession, and maybe a part of me does. What I hate more, though, is that I have to push her away to keep her safe. That I have to pretend like I don’t fucking want her when she’s all I’ve been able to think about for the last six years.

We’re no fucking Romeo and Juliet. We’re much worse than that. A love like ours was doomed from the start.

Review – Poisoned Paradise by Lucy Smoke

58125579. sy475

Poisoned Paradise; Black Heart Romance presents Heaven and Hell 
(A standalone within a series; Black Heart Romance, 6 books)

Publication Date: September 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Forbidden/Bully/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Lucy Smoke

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A new taboo twist with smexy, dark themes.

Lucy Smoke leads this book with a content warning. Normally, I love jumping into a book wide-eyed and fresh, but for some reason, this particular warning caught my attention and I’m glad it did, and here’s why…

This book is labeled taboo and forbidden and while I would definitely give it a dark label and bully label, and if I had jumped into reading Poisoned Paradise without any prior notice, then I could see the first two labels sticking, but, and this is a big but, Lucy is excellent at writing this story with a lot of gray undertones that allows readers to not only want these two characters to work out in the end, but also to work out for the right reasons.

As a reader if, like me, you decide to read the content warning, understand that those reasons are important and I won’t give away what those are just in case you are normally are like me and like to dive in head first. However, since I did actually read the warning and it basically gave away THE huge reveal, I had mixed feelings throughout reading the book. On one hand I was glad I did know because otherwise those gray undertones I was talking about, weeeellllllll, they could have been a bit darker than I might have been willing to handle. On the other, since I did know…as a reader we love getting to those twists. I suppose I’ll never know because I did know, but aside from that, I REALLY enjoyed the story and I REALLY enjoyed Lucy’s writing. This will not be my last book by her, because I forgot to mention, this is the very first book by Lucy Smoke. WOW, what a story to jump into plot wise, but I am hugely impressed with how she writes and I want to return.

Willow and Ryan grow up in foster care together, but end up split up for six years not connecting again until college. Ryan is a huge bully, dark and mean. He wants nothing to do with Willow and makes it known that she needs to stay away. As much as she’d love to reconnect, she also knows better, as he never once responded over the six years he was gone from her life, however, some force seems to keep pushing them together and no matter how much Ryan keeps tormenting her, she can’t find it in herself to hate him.

There is certainly more than what meets the eye between these two, but will they destroy everything around them for love?

There are some great twists and the secondary characters help drive the plot as well. I really enjoyed the book overall and no matter what the taboo theme was, I was happy to take the ride.

Synopsis:

Willow

Six years ago, I made a mistake. The worst mistake I could have ever possibly made. I fell in love with the wrong person and … I told him.

Ryan’s always been with me ever since I can remember. It’s been the two of us—side by side. Through every new beginning, every new ‘family’, and every failure. Is it any wonder that the love I had for him turned into something different—something deeper? Something utterly rotten?

And is it any wonder that he hates me for it now?

Ryan

I’m a damaged soul, and she’s the only thing that’s ever held me together. But the one woman I want is the one woman I can never have.

She thinks I hate her for her confession, and maybe a part of me does. What I hate more, though, is that I have to push her away to keep her safe. That I have to pretend like I don’t fucking want her when she’s all I’ve been able to think about for the last six years.

We’re no fucking Romeo and Juliet. We’re much worse than that.

A love like ours was doomed from the start.

**NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Alright guys, I’m gonna need your trust on this one. This might seem like a crazy idea and I assure you, it is. But I’m here, on my knees now, for you―asking you to trust me. TRUST. IN. ME. It’s gonna be fine. Just get to the end and you’ll understand why I had to do this. This is a STANDALONE book.**

Review – Saint by Sierra Simone

56779244. sy475

Saint; Priest #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: September 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/MM Romance/Taboo Romance

Author: Sierra Simone

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Once again, Sierra Simone has blown me away with a deeply touching story. Saint is spiritual, it’s emotional, it’s loving, it’s family, it’s moving, it’s so many feels the goosebumps just kept coming over and over.

Elijah and Aiden were boyfriends until Aiden walked away and joined an Abbey to become a monk. What makes it hard for Elijah to understand, there wasn’t closure, there wasn’t discussion about Aiden’s decision, and there wasn’t a goodbye before Aiden left. There was nothing, just one fateful night that changed Aiden forever…that night brought tears to my eyes and still brings goosebumps running through my entire body right down to my soul everytime I think about it.

If Aiden hadn’t left and broken Elijah’s heart, Aiden might not have survived to even be there five years later for Elijah to be angry at. Yes, five years, but it was necessary and this is one story not to miss.

Aiden is no longer Aiden, he is now Brother Patrick and structure, prayers and the simple life is how he now lives his life. No more jet setting all over the world, making millions, partying, and especially no more loving Elijah. Well, he may still be working on the last one, but that is one sin he can’t seem to let go of. Aiden is lost when he arrives at the Abbey and the only way he feels he can help himself is with a strong hand in faith. He’s stepped so far off the path of his life, he needs guidance. He’s in the dark and the Abbey is his light. He didn’t leave with the intention to hurt anyone, he didn’t leave his past behind in spite. Aiden is at his lowest. Aiden is lost.

This is only the second book I’ve read by Sierra and I already know I can’t get enough. Her books make me think, they make me feel, and they touch on topics that are relevant, but also a tad taboo. Sierra is able to combine faith, hope, and love in a way that isn’t casting a shadow on any one road or path to what is right or wrong in religion. What works for someone doesn’t necessarily work for someone else, but that doesn’t make it wrong, it just doesn’t fit for that particular person. For example, there is a beautiful part where Aiden is praying while out in the field, the sun beating down on his skin, it’s just him, nature, his prayers and God. There is nothing more pure in that moment than what is between you and the god you pray to and it was a revelation to even Aiden after almost five years in the Abbey that no matter where he was that was the relationship he was seeking. That was a true awakening for him. He released he didn’t need a building, people surrounding him, etc…God was everywhere.

Through the journey, Aiden may have been working on his relationship with the man upstairs and with Elijah, but he struggled with combining the two. How could he still have feelings for Elijah and still keep his vows as a monk?

I will come back and pick up a Sierra Simone book again, for sure, as I adore and appreciate the time and research she puts into her books.  I get goosebumps over and over again with her divine like writing.

Synopsis:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

Excerpt

I watched her as she slept. The rise and fall of her naked chest was so fucking peaceful. A large part of me wanted to just take her and disappear to some island in the Caribbean where no one would know us or care.

But I knew neither of our lives were that simple.

What the fuck was I doing?

What the fuck was I even thinking? And of course, the little princess had to be a virgin. I’d been way off the mark with her. She was so goddamn sure of herself when she talked and the way she acted around me that time in her bedroom.

Fuck.

I was so fucking fucked it wasn’t even funny.

Everything.

All of it.

Five years of work.

Five years of risk.

For a bit of untouched pussy.

But maybe my dick knew better than my head. Because Madelyn was so much more than just a good lay. What she’d said to me nearly broke me when she’d said it.

It spoke to me in a way that it shouldn’t have.

Someone like her, from her upbringing, with her wealth, shouldn’t have been able to connect with my fucked up life so easily.

With the notion of wanting something for yourself. Of wanting to make sure no one else had control over you. Of not wanting to be reliant on others.

The girl was more gangster than most of the kids working for Johnny.

“Fuck,” I breathed out.

She moved in the bed and turned to look at me. It was around dusk and the suite was dark, but even still, her blue eyes shined, giving off “You’re so fucking screwed” signals to my brain.

“Hey,” she said groggily. “You okay?”

I nodded, not sure what to say. What did you even say to a girl after you took her virginity? Well, after she gave it to you. This was new territory for me. Most of the girls I’d hooked up with were experienced and the majority were professionals.

She was silent for a beat before she finally spoke. “So, what happens now?”

I winced. It was the question I’d been dreading because it was one I didn’t have the answer to. Was I just supposed to hand her over to Johnny, knowing who Johnny was and how he treated his laundry list of wives?

But, if I didn’t, I might as well flush the last five years of risk and my chance at revenge down the drain because there was no coming back if I ever got found out.

Shit.

“I don’t know,” I replied honestly.

She sat up in bed and pulled the sheet toward her. She looked down to play with the fabric a bit as she spoke. “I knew what this was when I initiated, Max. I’m not looking for you to hide me out or something.”

“Good,” I let slip past my lips. She didn’t say anything, but even I knew what I’d said stung. I turned around to face her, not letting myself touch her even though that’s all I wanted to do.

She gave me a sad smile and I could feel it in my soul. She looked right through me the way no one in my life ever had. As if she knew what made me tick and that it wasn’t my heart.

“Why are you with Johnny, Max? You don’t belong there. Something else is going on.”

I gave her a lazy smile, trying desperately not to crack under her bright blue eyes.

“Whattya mean?”

She gave me a knowing look. “I mean, you’re obviously not from Boston since you haven’t dropped one ‘r’ the entire time I’ve known you. And,” she looked down briefly and shrugged. “I dunno. I just have a feeling about you. About the real you. So who are you really?” She looked back up at me with those baby blues and fuck if they didn’t break me.

I was no pussy.

I’d been to war.

I’d seen combat.

I’d lost people.

I’d taken people.

I meant what I said to her when I said I wasn’t some white knight.

I’d been tortured, beaten and broken and I’d never cracked under the pressure.

But, when the fucking princess asked me that question and looked at me that way, my lips started moving, spilling secrets I’d sworn I’d take to my grave all over the fucking room.

Review:
The Sinner tapped into all of my pleasure centers and allowed my fantasy freak flag to fly. Emma, girrrrlllll, this book was perfect!

Loving this book hardly begins to describe the immense joy I felt over jumping into this otherworldly story. I’m a huge nut for fantasy, paranormal, afterlife, futuristic, sci-fi, or anything else you want to lump in here under this genre, and The Sinner nestled right into this genre world that was written spectacularly.

Lucy Dennings stumbles upon a body in her parking lot and soon finds out that said body is attached to a 4000 year old demon. When she should walk away and leave him to his own devices, she decides to help him, finding herself more and more attached with each passing day . His request is to help him seek redemption in the next eleven days and he will help her gain the attention of the man she has been crushing on for the past two years. It seems reasonable, what is there to lose? After all why not trust a demon?

Casziel is a mystery thorough much of the story, which makes the pages turn. What is he hiding? Why did he with Lucy, a shy introvert? Plus the demon is 4000 years old! He is a wealth of knowledge, but he’s also a total grump. While Lucy wants to know everything, because…hello, I’d also want to know everything…he’s lived through so much, but Cas is an open book only up to a point, which is when Lucy start to get personal. Hello demon. However, as much as Cas’ demon personality should turn Lucy off, she never gives up on him.

As a lover of books that contain other worlds, fantastic creatures, immortal lives, and what would seem unrealistic goals…The Sinner is perfection in how it wove together from start to finish. History blended with fiction along with tall tales and spoken truths. There is no right or wrong in fantasy romance, probably why I love it so much. Everyone has a place and I love that no matter what your beliefs, it fits within this kind of tale.

Lucy and Casziel will pull you into their world and bring a feeling of comfort that is sort of hard to describe, but certainly one that is hard to leave.  The entire journey made my heart happy and Emma Scott has solidified a spot in my wheelhouse as a fantasy romance writer and I really look forward to returning and seeing what else she will create that I’m sure will be out of this world.

Synopsis:

Shy, introverted Lucy Dennings lives a quiet little life in New York City, working for a nonprofit and keeping to herself. Every afternoon, she goes home to her empty apartment and Edgar, her houseplant, and every night, she loses herself in the pages of her beloved romance novels. Her lonely heart seeks solace in tales of passionate, enduring, all-consuming love, but more and more, Lucy feels she’s not just reading for pleasure but searching for her a lost piece of herself in the pages. As if she once touched something beautiful but it’s been ripped away.

Until one day Lucy discovers a dead body in the alley behind her apartment. Even if it’s too late, her first instinct is to help.

Her second is to run.

Because the dead body isn’t so very dead, and suddenly, her little world isn’t so little but one in which dreams feel like memories, “inner demons” actually lurk in dark alleys, and a beautiful creature of darkness with amber eyes and wings like night might hold the key to what her heart has been aching for…if she doesn’t fall down the path of eternal damnation first.

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Emma Scott, comes an emotional paranormal love story of passion, sacrifice, and the soul-deep love of a lifetime…more than one.

Review – My Fiancé’s Bodyguard by Ivy Wild

58235545. sy475

My Fiance’s Bodyguard 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: August 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Forbidden/Opposites Attract/Mafia Romance

Author: Ivy Wild

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A different take on the forbidden romance, with a grumpy hero that is easy to fall in love with and a sassy heroine with a ton of spirit.

Max and Madelyn are a slow to burn romance wrapped up in a mafia story that is unlike any other I’ve read before. Madelyn has basically been locked away for most of her life and her father has been unsuccessfully been trying to marry her off, that is until the big mafia boss asks for her hand and this time her greedy father doesn’t say no. The age difference is probably grandfather to granddaughter spread, but it’s what he does, his personality, etc…along with his age that has Maddie disgruntled with the decision and nothing will  stop her from halting the marriage, if it’s the last thing she ever does.

Max has worked for Johnny Maldonado for the past five years. He’s worked his way up in the organization garnering any information he can and he won’t let a wealthy princess get in his way of what he’s after.

Max was super grumpy about his job and Maddie was extremely oblivious about the world she grew up in…was this intentional? Knowing the beautiful style Ivy Wild typically writes, I’m going to say yes.

There were so many hints dropped along the way that there was a lot more depth to these characters than the shallowness they give off at first, it was certainly what kept me reading because I had to know what secrets Max was holding on to and I just knew Maddie was full of more than the princess cover she portrayed. I’ll just drop that yes, both characters grew in depth and the story was twisty and gave exactly what I was expecting from an Ivy Wild book.

These two, once they let their guards down, discovered they had more in common then they ever would have thought; a wealthy girl that Max calls Princess and a mafia thug with more than meets the eye. Perhaps with the same end goal, they could help one another, if they don’t get caught and end up dead in the process.

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

Review – Scoring With Him by Lauren Blakely

57825462. sy475

Scoring With Him; Men of Summer #1 
(#1 of a duet)

Publication Date: July 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Forbidden/Sports/MM Romance

Author: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Scoring With Him is filled with Blakely’s signature style, but completely leveled up with all the angst. We are talking a hot, sports romance with ALL the feels and a huge cliffy!!

Blakely has written an MM sports romance where the fictional world is inclusive and gay sports players are living out and proud. I love this suspension of disbelief, it brings a brighter feeling to the overall book and shuffles past a lot of the problems we currently live in. However, she also drops in very real issues that would still arise such as the only two gay men hanging out and a fellow team member noticing. Even if they were only hanging out as friends, that inner feeling of “do they think we are a couple, just because we are gay?”. It was a perfect blend of fiction meeting the real world that gave this book the right amount of angst.

Due to the fact that Declan and Grant play for the same team, there are very distinct issues that normal couples would never come across. These men play a sport at a very high level that a very low percentage of people would never achieve or even think about. With the salaries they are paid Declan and Grant are expected to always perform at their best. Messing up on the field or not having their head in the game and creating conflict within their own team just isn’t something that can happen, ever. But how do you tell that to your heart when the man of your dreams is literally right in front of you?

Declan is the seasoned player and Grant is the incoming rookie. Both men are known to be highly dedicated and neither have been in a relationship during a baseball season. However, they have an instant connection, a friendship that blossoms first, before their chemistry cannot be contained, but given how dedicated they are, rules are put into place and an end date is given, but will they be able to stick to it when it finally comes?

There is a big cliffhanger that will pick up in the next book and with years separating the storylines, but with this tale, Scoring With Him is full of emotions, heat, and our favorite American pastime – baseball.

Synopsis:

An emotional, sexy, forbidden romance! Scoring with Him is the first novel in the utterly addictive Men of Summer Series!

Falling for the rookie wasn’t part of the plan.
As a pro athlete, I have one unbreakable rule when it comes to men — Don’t date another baseball player.
Good thing I haven’t been tempted once in four years in the majors.
Until the day a rising star walks into my locker room. Outgoing, affable, and sexy-as-sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles. He seems to get me too, maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars — ones we’ll both fight to protect.
But, I’ve got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present.
All the more reason to resist the kind of dirty deeds his lips and eyes promise.
Even after I plant a scorching, hot kiss on the rookie one night after a game.
Even after he sends me the world’s sexiest selfie.
But when Grant reveals his biggest secret, I’m so damn ready to rip up the rulebook.
Turns out he’s a virgin and he wants me to help him get around all the bases.
The only rule? Don’t fall in love with him as we go.

Scoring with Him is book one in the utterly addictive Men of Summer series. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years and continues in Winning With Him.

Blog Tour – Good Intentions by Ella Frank

Gabriel Romero made me hungry for things I’d never wanted,
and starved of the things I didn’t think I’d ever need.
Until now…
Until him…

Good Intentions, the all-new, seriously hot age-gap romance and the conclusion to the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

Bold and sexy, with a face that could melt through the iciest of exteriors, Gabriel Romero is the one factor I never saw coming. There are so many reasons we shouldn’t work—my age, his, our career goals in life—and yet we are drawn together by a passion for music, and each other, that neither of us can deny.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions Duet.

Excerpt:

Tinsley in her glittery gold gown had been a jaw-dropping sight to behold. But

Tinsley now? Standing before me in nothing but milky white skin?

God help me.

“You’re more exquisite than I ever imagined.”

She strained toward my raspy whisper, lifting on toes, fingers stretching

across my shoulders.

I was a bastard, making her wait for that compliment. I wasn’t one to readily

offer praise, but with her, I would spill the verities of my soul.

“My boobs are, uh…” She stared down at her chest and laughed at herself,

her eyes dancing with mirth. “There’s a committee for what they are.”

“They’re elegant.” I rested my palms on her ribs, just beneath her perky little

tits. “Beautifully proportioned.” Heat rushed to my groin as I swept my thumbs

over flawless skin and dainty nipples. “Soft as satin, tipped with immaculate

beauty.”

“Magnus.” Her breath shivered.

The tiny buds hardened beneath my touch, stiffening my cock.

God, forgive me.

I lowered to my knees and caressed my lips along the divine shape of her

figure. She was a fantasy of flexible limbs and graceful curves. Angelic. Malleable.

Slender shoulders. Narrow hips. Porcelain complexion. Not a freckle or blemish to

be found.

While I learned her body, her hands traveled north along the back of my

neck, exploring, teasing.

“I’ve wanted to feel your hair for so long.” She tangled her fingers in the

strands.

Her flat stomach quivered beneath my mouth as I nipped and licked lower,

lower, my pants growing tighter, tighter.

She shouldn’t be here. I needed to stop, but my hands and lips kept moving

until I arrived at the ultimate forbidden destination.

The apex of her legs, the golden hairs neatly trimmed, the scent of her

painfully enticing, crippling, robbing my brain cells. I raked my fingers through the

soft curls and edged toward her clit.

She gasped, held still. Then she canted her hips into my touch, seeking

friction, demanding. Sexy. So damn naughty.

I snatched my hand away, letting her know it wasn’t her decision.

Her pouty bottom lip pushed out. A gleam lit her eyes. Then she slid her

fingers down her abs and sank them between her legs.

My cock ached to be where her hand was, encased in her heat, submerged in

her wetness. I gripped her arm and moved it to her side.

Blurb:

There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done.

But I found a way to control my impulses.

I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student.

Until Tinsley Constantine.

The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her.

One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life.

As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.

When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.

Review – Lessons in Sin by Pam Godwin

57985189. sy475

Lessons in Sin; Midnight Dynasty 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Forbidden/Age-Gap/Dark Romance

Author: Pam Godwin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Powerful, addicting, and down right sinful!! The very definition of taboo romance – I was sucked in and couldn’t put this book down!

Lessons in Sin is sinful and smart, while also being witty and playful, the very essence of the story captured both Magnus and Tinsley’s personalities perfectly. The darkness, the curiosity, the overwhelming need and desire was all well written between the pages – this taboo story was like nothing I’ve ever read and I couldn’t get enough!

Tinsley is fierce, intelligent and a pure force for Father Magnus, a man who for the past nine years since dedicating his life to God, hasn’t strayed once. However, when Tinsley’s angelic face tempts his demons, right along with her sarcastic retorts and bratty attitude, Magnus isn’t able to keep a lock and key on the celibacy that he chained up years ago. The more she taunts him the more his monster is clamoring to break free. Nothing may be able to stop the rip tide of what is to come, but that is usually what happens in the presence of a Constantine.

Tinsley is everything I could have hoped she would be. Certainly a Constantine in every sense of the strong, independent, and fierce woman she needs to be for the world her last name requires of her, but she’s also intelligent, has a heart, and is fiercely loyal when it is justified. The more I got to know her the more I really enjoyed her character and knew she was perfect for Magnus along with being worthy of her last name.

Magnus was a bit of a mystery when the story began, but that aloof hands off man, helps keep him a shroud of in his darkness to start with. He’s dominate, in an almost scary way, yet he does things that let you know he still has a sense of compassion. He’s such a force unto himself that it’s easy to see why Tinsley gravitates to him, but know it is a slow pull and burn that will burn so hot…holy sinfulness!!

Lessons in Sin also fit perfectly within the Constantine world. It completely upped my need to read more of this family and within this world. I need to find out all of their hidden secrets and make sure they all find their dark and twisted HEA’s.

Synopsis:

There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done.
But I found a way to control my impulses.
I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student.

Until Tinsley Constantine.

The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her.

One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life.

As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.

New Release – Ache by Marley Valentine

Marley Valentine has revealed the cover for Ache!From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, friends-to lovers gay romance standalone.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is ecCLQPi4pkSHQBjRqzYQJFvkPj9zVRD8DIUE17qfXlsnOmb3RLncyHLd8BdNt2icP2WoODnHSr0g15Fhp2ccL2pgu2iTnpDuD--LdCBRwpVMdseFF1NhBMGZaGvRnvNHYmZI_8et



I couldn’t tell you when I fell in love with Gael Herrera,
but I wish I knew how to make it stop.

Falling in love with a straight man is a rookie mistake. But falling in love with my soon-to-be-married-to-a-woman best friend is nothing but heartache.

Through all the years, and all the men I’ve fooled around with, he’s always been at the back of my mind. An unrequited crush I wish I could shake. A dream that was never going to come true.

When I whisk him off to a surprise bachelor party weekend in Vegas, I surrender to the idea that this is an opportunity for me to finally let go of my feelings for him and say goodbye.

But after a heated exchange and an even hotter kiss, everything I thought I knew about our friendship changed.

Maybe I had it wrong. Maybe, after all this time, we were more than best friends. Maybe, just maybe, he felt it too.

New Release – Good Intentions by Ella Frank

Gabriel Romero made me hungry for things I’d never wanted,
and starved of the things I didn’t think I’d ever need.
Until now…
Until him…

Good Intentions, the all-new, seriously hot age-gap romance and the conclusion to the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

Bold and sexy, with a face that could melt through the iciest of exteriors, Gabriel Romero is the one factor I never saw coming. There are so many reasons we shouldn’t work—my age, his, our career goals in life—and yet we are drawn together by a passion for music, and each other, that neither of us can deny.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions Duet.

Blurb:

An epic mafia romance trilogy that sets a new bar for just how dark a hero can get, from NY Times Bestselling author CD Reiss.

Some girls dream of marrying a prince, but I never imagined I’d be sold to a king.

Santino DiLustro.

The king.

The monster.

The keeper of secrets.

When he forced me to marry him, I cried for love I’d never know.

When he locked me away, I cried for the freedom I lost forever.

Every other tear I’ve shed is for my soul, because I’m falling for the devil himself.

About the Author:

CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.

Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.

She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.

Review – Good Intentions by Ella Frank

57828718. sy475

Good Intentions; Intentions #2
(#2 of a Duet)

Publication Date: June 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Forbidden/Age-Gap/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Finished Good Intentions with a HUGE smile on my face!! It was hawt, adorable, it was hawdorable and so freakin smexy. Gabe and Marcus are going down as two of my favorite characters that Ella Frank has ever written!

The cover models are completely spot on…it was so easy…so, so easy to picture the smexy characters in my head throughout the entire duet. The hawdorable couple was charming every moment throughout every chapter, I was lost in Ella’s world and never wanted to return, hence the huge smile on my face by the very end. Speaking of which, the ending was everything but cliche, it was absolute perfection!

Ella Frank has fast become a one click MM author for me. She captures all the emotions, the super steamy times and flushes out the character development to perfection. It makes each book enjoyable from cover to cover.

Gabe and Marcus’ story is one I know I will remember for lots of reasons. First and foremost though will be Gabe’s fun and flirty personality that melts Marcus’ icy demeanor. Much like Beauty and Beast, but infused with a forbidden theme, this duet is about a man who thought at age forty-two his life would only ever be about work and would never involve love, but found his life was better when he met his soulmate, his other half, in Gabe, a man with an old soul, but also half his age.

These two will bring a smile to your face, heat your heart, along with other parts of your body, and live long in your soul. A must read!

Synopsis:
I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Book 1, Bad Intentions, needs to be read first for the best enjoyment, so check out Intentions Duet Series and know that it’s best to read them in order:

Strict Confidence; Rochester Trilogy #2
(#2 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: June 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Forbidden/Boss-Employee/Age-Gap/Suspense Romance

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Emotions are high, feelings are tense, and suspicions are abound in the second book of this suspenseful trilogy.

We pick right up after the fire that destroyed Coach House and untangling the mystery of what happened the night Beau, Jane, and Paige almost died. Who or what possibly started the fire? Could someone be after Beau for nefarious reasons or could it be Jane that brought danger to the Rochester doorstep?There seem to be more questions than answers as the days pass, but on top of solving the case keeping Paige emotionally stable is both of their top priorities. She’s already lost both of her parents and now her home and everything she ever knew is destroyed on top of what she already lost. How much else can a little girl suffer? These are the moments that will break you in two.

Added to this already tumultuous storyline, Jane and Beau also dance around their feelings once again. Beau is torn between giving in, when he feels his feelings might have caused the danger to begin with and Jane struggles to come to terms with feeling like the help and being Beau’s lover now that Beau wants to put the breaks on. Uncertainty is written all over what they share which doesn’t help in facing a future together. How do you put the lid on pandora’s box when everything is already pouring out of it? Their feelings are raw and hurtful, but make the story that much better.

What I love best is the mystery surrounding this story, the unknown of exactly who the bad guy could be. I also love the tenacity of Paige and how resilient she is given everything she has gone through, but I’m always a sucker for children.

With a killer still on the loose, I’m excited to see how everything plays out and how it all comes together. What’s going to happen? Will everyone survive?

Read Kay’s Review: Tragic Lies

Blurb:
Peyton Myers has always been the life of the party.
But behind her smile and sass is a girl lost and alone, searching for her place in the world.
Xander Chase has always been on the outside looking in.
But behind his cool indifference and hard exterior is a guy afraid to open his heart to anyone.
When he saves Peyton from a tragic accident, their lives are entwined forever. But Xander’s not the hero of her story… no matter how much she wants him to be.
She’s a girl with her whole life ahead of her.
He’s a guy who is drifting through life.
And although these two lost souls might be able to heal each other, there’s one glaring problem.
She’s still in high school…
And completely forbidden.

About the Author:
Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.
Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

EXCERPT
Ashley bites her lip to try and stifle a whimper. My teeth click together under the pressure of my jaw. “You should be embarrassed,” I hiss at her. “Riding my fingers while you cry about your daddy.”

Tears run silent down her face, and she whimpers again. It’s half-moan now, but Ashley swallows hard and lifts her chin. “I can miss him,” she manages, “and want you.”

“Don’t,” I growl into her face, thrusting my fingers with more force, unable to stop. “Don’t pretend it’s me you want. Don’t lie to yourself.”

I press a thumb to her clit and Ashley shudders.

“I’m the only one who’s being honest.” Her breath hitches with every word. “You’re the liar. You say you’re an evil villain, and you’re not. You say you’re only keeping me here because you want—you want—” I’m coaxing a mean orgasm out of her and it’s working. Ashley isn’t doing a fucking thing to stop me. She’s only getting hotter and wetter. “Because you want money, and you want to see me cry. But it’s not true.”

“It’s all true. And you get off on it. Princesses like you always do. You’re filthy little things who leave before sunrise at the next port.”

Hurt flashes in her eyes and echoes through me, but I’m too far gone to take it back, to tell her the truth—that in all the ports I’ve visited around the world, there’s been no one like her. That I give Nicholas such unholy shit for his girl back home because I don’t have one. It’s been years since I brought a woman on board with me. There was no one before Ashley. And after she’s gone—

“You don’t know anything about women like me.” Ashely sets her jaw and tilts her hips to get more pressure on her clit.

She’s wrong. I don’t know anything about anything. Right now I’m a hurricane that’s about to make landfall. I’m a twisting spiral of wind and rain and screaming steel. “I don’t care about women like you.”

Her chin lifts, and I’ve never seen anything so hot in my whole fucking life. Defiance, while her hips work and her pussy clenches around my fingers. “I want this.”

“No, you don’t. You’re taking what’s available—”

With a frustrated groan she arches in my grip, getting just enough leverage to find more points of contact. Ashley’s lips meet mine in a bite hard enough to break skin. “You said to decide after this is over,” she says, tightening around my fingers. “It’s never—it’s never going to be over.” She can hardly breathe for how she’s panting. The poor little rich girl does like it rough. “I don’t care what you say. I don’t care how mean you are. I’m not changing my mind.”

Blurb:

What is a pirate without his ship? Without the sea?
I sacrificed everything to save Ashley. Now we’re hiding out while I build a new ship, a new life for myself. It’s paradise here on the island. Sparkling water and lush greenery. A beautiful woman by my side. But the threat of danger grows closer. The net tightens. We’re at risk every second we stay here, but there’s nowhere to run. Even the ocean won’t save us now.
Devil May Care is the third book in the Devil trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Amelia Wilde. The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and A Deal with the Devil must be read first.

About the Author:

Amelia Wilde is a USA TODAY bestselling author of steamy contemporary romance and loves it a little too much. She lives in Michigan with her husband and daughters. She spends most of her time typing furiously on an iPad and appreciating the natural splendor of her home state from where she likes it best: inside.
