Cover Reveal: The Billionaire & the Barfly by Adrianne James

Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.
Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar.
After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?

Can't Shake You by Molly McLain

Can't Shake You (River Bend, #1)Can't Shake You by Molly McLain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lovers to friends to lovers…could it get any more complicated?

One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always get her in trouble. Still, she’s gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson—the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago. 

Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don’t look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple—or it would, if he wasn’t harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can’t get out of his head. 

When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh’s integrity—both personal and professional—won’t let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?

Warning: This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, smokin’ hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush. For readers 18+.

About this author

Like many novelists, especially romance writers, my infatuation with a good love story began early. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I’ll admit that Barbie and Ken acted more than a couple of the story lines I had in my head (sorry, Mom, but, no, not all of them were kid-appropriate). The obsession continued to grow as I got older and, whenever I left home, I always had a wire-bound notebook and a blue ballpoint pen in hand. In fact, every August, I still get that goofy, schoolgirl itch to buy up oodles of pens and paper, because, while I love my laptop, nothing compares to writing long-hand. If the house is quiet and there’s a thunderstorm rumbling outside, even better.

Not that I have the slightest a clue what a quiet house is anymore. Having three rambunctious (but awesome) kids, a zippy dog and a pesky cat has completely blurred my memory of peace and quiet. Oh, and I have a husband too–I call him the FisherGuy–and he’s probably louder and crazier than all the rest. I think I’ll keep him though. After all, he keeps me in fresh fish year-round (yum!) and he’s good hero material. Did I mention he’s also a firefighter?

We live in Northern Wisconsin and, let me tell ya, living here has provided lots of small-town fodder for this writer’s overactive imagination. Of course, I know no one who’s lived anything close to the steamy experiences I write about (not that I’d tell ya if I did *wink*). There’s something inherently sexy about not knowing what goes on behind closed doors…or even better, letting my imagination run free, concocting all kinds of stories and scenarios and putting them down on paper. Or my laptop.

2014 is going to be a big year for me, as I debut my first novel early in the spring and the majority of the remaining series as the year goes on. I’ll also be releasing at least one, hopefully two, books in a second series. Both are set in small towns and both will feature smart, spunky heroines and sexy, smokin’ hot heroes. Oh, and romance…sometimes sweet and sometimes sizzling.

My Review

A sweet romance with a hint of humour.
Once you get started with this book you find that you are unable to put it down.
If you believe in second chances then this is the book for you

The Mackenzie Duncan Series by Adrianne James

The Tempering

The Mythology department at prestigious Harvard University is tiny—and Mackenzie Duncan has just been selected as one of the lucky few. Her love for myths and legends is deep, but she never thought any of it could be real.
After being attacked by a large wolf while walking home alone, Mackenzie realizes something is not right. She heals quickly, has suddenly become super strong, and is experiencing mood swings that can't possibly be normal. The myths she's studying aren't myths at all. Werewolves are real, and she's one of them. Fear of what she is, and who she might hurt sends Mackenzie running from the life she’s worked hard to build–and straight into the arms of a handsome Were named Geoff and into the home of his pack. Living with her new pack takes the edge off her confusion and self-loathing, but the arrival of new pack members changes the dynamic, and tests Geoff and Mackenzie’s growing relationship.
The hardest part of being a werewolf is to have no control and no memory of her time as a bloodthirsty beast. When a moon cycle passes, and she is actually able to remember bits and pieces of the night, she starts to ask questions, and the more questions she asks, the more she realizes she doesn’t like the answers. Can she set aside her own sense of morals to belong to a pack that is like a family or will she leave everything behind yet again in search of a life she can be proud of?

The Enlightening

Mackenzie Duncan found out that pack life wasn’t for her. Now she is running for the second time in the six months since she was bitten and turned into a Werewolf. But this time, she isn’t alone. This time, she has Geoff and Liam with her, two very hot Werewolves vying for her heart.
But her companions aren't her focus. The only thing she can focus on is getting far from her old pack and their murderous ways. Only, she doesn’t just want to run. She wants to warn every pack she can that their lives are in danger too. No one should be turned against their will like she was and no other pack should have to surrender to the ideas of a centuries old, power hungry woman.
Not only does Mackenzie have to deal with her crazy ex-pack leader sending people out to kill her, she has to keep both men at arm’s length (and that proves to be much more difficult than she thought), but she finds out more about her own life and heritage than she ever thought imaginable.
And suddenly, everything makes sense...

Romance Impossible by Melanie Marchande

Romance ImpossibleRomance Impossible by Melanie Marchande
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One man. One woman. One restaurant. A stormy temper, and a grudge that’s been years in the making. It’s the perfect recipe for Romance: Impossible.

But add a little heat, and anything can happen...

Jillian Brown needs a job. Chef Maxwell Dylan needs an employee who can put up with him. And for some reason, the notorious celebrity chef has his sights set on her. It’s a match made in the deepest fires of hell, but Jillian’s desperate, and righteous indignation doesn’t pay the bills.

Chef Dylan doesn’t seem to remember their chance encounter years ago, when he embarrassed Jillian in front of a restaurant full of customers. And Jillian - well, she’s willing to put the memory behind her, in the name of a steady paycheck.

But things get complicated. Tempers flare, verbal sparring soon gives way to a grudging mutual respect - and feelings that the once-bitten, twice-shy Jillian isn’t ready for. Especially not with a man like Chef Dylan. But with flames licking higher, can Jillian resist the temptation? More importantly, does she really want to?

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy bigger than anyone ever expected. One by one, they will find their mates from the immortal vampyric Valendite breeds and secure their place in history. Each sister embodies one of the seven deadly sins only to be cast aside once claimed. But claiming comes at the price of separation, causing a weakening of their combined powers, which none want to happen... until Layla, holding the sin of lust within her body, locks eyes with Madden.

Madden is one of the strongest of the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men originating from the Italian Wars in the 1500s. Today, the Valendite Breed serve as the Terrorist Elimination Unit, an invisible arm of the CIA. Their only weakness is their need for a mate to carry on the Breed. So now that Madden has found Layla, he will never let her go.

With forces mounting up against the Breed, Madden and Layla will need to rely on both of their powers to get them to their Pronouncement.

Breathless by Cerys du Lys

Breathless (Soulless, #1-3)Breathless by Cerys du Lys
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From USA Today Bestselling Author Cerys du Lys ~ 

Sadie and Evan live in entirely different worlds. Brought together by fate, and held there by hope, can they bridge the gap dividing humanity, or will long held fears and prejudice force them apart forever? 

(A Cerys du Lys paranormal romance novel) 

Sadie is a normal girl. Or, she used to be. 

When catastrophe strikes, a military experiment meant to advance society sends the world into chaos and disarray instead. Those affected become lost and confused, cold and alone. Many give in to their new vicious urges, striking out against humanity for forcing them into this unwanted existence. 

Sadie is one of them, but she refuses to hurt people like they do. She won't. Life is hard now, but there must be more, right? She can cope, she can... 

Does she even have a reason for living anymore, or is she just fooling herself? 

Evan is a normal guy. He was one, and he still is. 

While everyone acts as if this is the end of the world, he refuses to believe it. There's always hope, always answers, and he's determined to find them. Everyone says it's pointless, that he's risking too much, but even if he can help just one person... 

The world isn't over, it needs guidance towards a new beginning, and Evan's going to help it get there. 

When Sadie and Evan meet in this soulless, heartless, hopeless world, their lives are inadvertently and inextricably bound together by fate. He can't actually like her, can he? She's so much different. There's no way for him to help her, is there? He doesn't know where to start. They can't stay together. They can't... 

But what if they're both willing to ignore their differences and just... try? 

Unfortunately, life isn't so simple. Amidst danger and disaster, deceit, treachery, and hate, it seems like the entire world is against them. Trapped, lost, alone, cold and isolated, betrayed and Breathless, can they overcome all obstacles and rescue not just themselves, but each other? 

Sweet, sensual, and alluring. This paranormal story of attraction and desire, suspense, danger, and fighting against the odds will captivate you, fascinate you, and leave you feeling spellbound.

Desperados MC by Sienna Valentine

Desperados MCDesperados MC by Sienna Valentine
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Her friends warned her that she shouldn't take the job bartending at that "biker bar", but Madison knew exactly what she was getting into. At least, she thought she did. She'd grown up in a sheltered household, but she'd watched SoA on TV, she was sure she knew what she was getting into. But when it came down to two tough members of the Desperado biker gang calling her bluff and leading her to the back room of the bar, she started having second thoughts.

Was she willing to do as they expected once they got back there, or was she going to chicken out?

This is a rough and wild motorcycle tale involving explicit sex, including MMF action between two bikers and a young woman who is crazy enough to get mixed up with them. It is intended for adults only.

A slightly overweight and sweaty man rushed over from the other side of the bar, wiping his head with a cloth to clear the sweat before it dripped into his eyes. "Yeah, Dax?"

"Madison here is going on break," he said. "And we need to use your back room."

Jimmy, the manager of the Drunken Skull, simply nodded his head in agreement, handing over a key to the biker's outstretched hand. "Sure, anything you need. Take as long as you want."

Madison's eyes widened as she realized her manager just agreed to let these two bikers take her into the private back room for however long they wanted to do whatever they wanted. She realized she had been inviting their attention, but now that reality was facing her she was having second thoughts.

Let's go." Dax said, as he jerked his head towards the hallway leading to the back of the bar. Madison paused for a moment, unsure what to do. Jimmy just averted his eyes and went back to serving customers, about as far away from them as he could get. He was obviously uninterested in getting involved in the affairs of the bikers that frequented his bar, even at the expense of one of his employees.

Troy looked at her, reading the indecision in her face immediately. He led out a sharp laugh. "Which one of us is all talk?" Madison's heart was pounding in her chest and her mouth felt dry. Dax had continued to walk, as if he didn't care whether she followed or not...

My Thoughts

This is another biker mc book, but it's nothing like the rest. It's not up there with the great Mc romances , I found it to be too short & it had a cliffhanger ending.

Salvation by Noelle Adams

SalvationSalvation by Noelle Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You get to the point where you can just say it. There was never anything special about me, except my father is rich and important. That's why it happened.

It was just a normal Tuesday afternoon. I was twenty-three and thinking about my new designer boots. They kidnapped me for ransom. They raped me before I was rescued. My therapist says that talking about it means I'm starting to heal.

I don't really think I am.

It's even harder to talk about Gideon. He couldn’t save me when it really mattered, so he keeps trying to save me now. He refuses to give up on me, and I can’t make him understand. There are some things you just can’t be saved from.

Warning: Salvation is a love story that follows a difficult path of healing after sexual assault. It is a true contemporary romance, but it addresses very hard issues, including rape and attempted suicide. Please consider whether this book is for you.(less)

Noelle Adams

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn't stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.
She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

My Thoughts

This was a heart rendering story, about two people caught in a situation together and brought salvation to each other.

This is a very hard subject to read but I found that it was well written and you were brought in to the story

Socialite Kasie Bosa is spitting fire at men. Her long-term boyfriend has asked for a break via text message of all things. Fuming, she’s told him to go take a dive off the nearest bridge. So the next man who crosses her path is at risk of being shredded with her spa manicured nails.

Bad news for Michael who has chosen her as the object of his challenge. But neither of them can deny the sizzling chemistry between them nor control their responses, it seems. It’s the season of love. Will they escape unscathed?

At age 4, Lauren Chisholm declared she had the 'most gorgeoustist, sparkly, friend in all the worlds, whose voice sounds like singing'. Her parents thought about taking her to a psychiatrist, in the hopes that Lauren would forget all about her 'favouritemost friend'. But they knew who she was talking about... and what she was talking about: an angel. Their only course of action was to tell Lauren that some things were pretend and most definitely... not real. They knew it was wrong, but they were unsure of how else to help her. Lauren was an earthbound human, and to fantasise about a world she would not be allowed to enter was just not acceptable to them. Now, pandemonium is about to erupt. Up in The Heavens, Ambriel, the angel of communications, is worried. He has discovered an anomaly in his Book of Mistdreamers; the Chisholm family had managed to slip through without registering years ago and are now in great danger. There is a Traitor at work. Meanwhile, Forcas, the angel of invisibility and a member of The Infidelibus, (a band of angels sworn to protect Mistdreamers), has been chosen to make contact with Lauren to help her realise her Mistdreaming potential. Join her as she ventures into Mistdreaming, and explores the realms between Heaven and Hell. Laugh at her antics. Fear for her life, when she encounters the Traitor. And share in her joy at finding her one, true love... The Park Family: Lauren - The Awakening is a spellbinding novel that will appeal to fantasy readers.

Cover Reveal - February 18th, 2014
Series (Y/N) - Yes, first book in series.  Second will be out April 20th, 2014.

When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.

Reality is much worse:

A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.

I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:


Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:

Resist and die.

Or submit, and sign my life away

I’m Scarlett Edwards. I wrote my first book as a college sophomore. After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.

That was at the start of 2013. I’ve written more books since then. You can find them all here.

It’s funny how quickly life changes. I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.” Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.

Cover Reveal. Guarding Angel by S. L. Saboviec (Fallen Redemption #1) Publication date: April 28th 2014


Guarding Angel by S. L. Saboviec 
(Fallen Redemption #1) 
Publication date: April 28th 2014 
Genres: Adult, Fantasy

Guardian angel Enael can’t seem to keep her human Wards in check. They’re the ones who choose their paths before reincarnating—-she’s just there to help make sure they stay on track. But it’s not as easy as it might look.

When she meets and falls in love with charismatic Kaspen, a fellow Guardian, Enael’s feelings about Heaven, Hell, demons, and the life she’s known are turned upside down. Worse still, angel-turned-demon Yasva, Kaspen’s former love, still holds him in her clutches. Even as Yasva works toward obtaining complete control of Earth, she taunts and haunts Kaspen’s and Enael’s lives.

Now Enael is forced to face her past (which is centuries long and bursting with secrets), her present (which is terribly unfulfilling and full of questions), and her future (which becomes more uncertain as time passes).

Cover Reveal Picking up the pieces

Picking Up the Pieces Synopsis:

After a myriad of mistakes and a devastating breakup, Lily Hamilton is no longer the impulsive, selfish person she had once been. Now, she longs for the chance to make it up to the one person she knows holds the key to her happiness. But can he get beyond who she was and love her for who she is now? Or is history destined to repeat itself?

Adam Carter has gone through his own metamorphosis. His days of serial monogamy are long gone, and he's been burying his hurt by dating women he has no intention of committing to. But when he sees Lily for the first time in months, he's reminded of the man he used to be; the man he wants to try and be again--for her.

Max Samson is on the downward spiral from hell. Drinking and meaningless sex have taken over his life once again, causing him to revert back to the man he'd been before Lily fell into his life. But when his mother invites Lily back into his world, he suddenly remembers how good it felt to have her there. Even if he might not get to keep her.

Find out how Lily gets her happily ever after in this final installment of her story.  This book is recommended for mature audiences due to language and unbelievably awesome sexual content.

Picking Up the Pieces Excerpt:
Excerpt from Chapter 4: Adam

The drive to school took even longer than expected as Eva told me repeatedly to slow down and be careful going over any speedbumps for fear of ruining her makeup.  “Where’d you learn how to do that anyway?” I asked, nodding toward some powder thing she had in her hand.
“Brittany’s mom.  She taught a bunch of us at a sleepover.”  Her voice seemed more chipper than it had before we'd left the house.  Only ten minutes earlier she’d been ready to give me a third degree burn with that hair contraption, and now she acted like it never happened.  Teenagers.
Brittany’s mom?” I raised an eyebrow and looked over at her hoping that she’d pick up on the reason for my question without having to spell it out for her.  Brittany’s mom was not the female influence I wanted for Eva. Her skin stayed perpetually tan, even during the winter thanks to baby oil and tanning salons.  And to my knowledge, she didn’t own one article of clothing that did not cling to her body like plastic wrap. I wasn’t sure what she did for a living, but some of the other fathers and I had speculated on more than one occasion.
Eva flipped the mirrored visor up roughly, letting it slap against the roof.  “Yeah, Brittany’s mom.  Gosh, what’s your problem today?”  
There’s the Eva I remember so vividly from this morning.  “Sorry,” I replied with a slight shrug of my shoulders and a smirk.
“Just drop me off over there,” she said pointing to a side entrance of the building that was about thirty yards away from the main doors.  “I don’t want people to see me getting out of your car.”  
As ridiculous as I thought that was, she was still a thirteen-year-old girl, and I didn’t want to embarrass her.  I rolled my eyes, but began to veer down the driveway toward the entrance Eva had requested.  
Until I saw her.  Lily. Walking up the sidewalk toward the school. My mind scolded itself for thinking her name. And as if by reflex, I slammed on my breaks and threw the car into reverse.  
“What are you doing, Dad?  I said up there.”
“Uh, I’m gonna drop you at the edge of the parking lot.” I searched for an excuse that would seem believable.  Somehow telling Eva that I didn’t want to run into her teacher from last year (you know, the one I’d been screwing) didn’t seem like an appropriate response.  “The buses are pulling up.  It’ll be easier to turn around.  And it's not cool to be seen with me, remember?"  I quickly added hoping that would strengthen my argument.
Eva seemed to accept the excuse without question, and I sighed internally with relief.  But Eva had always been observant: able to read people better than most.  “What are you looking at?” she asked as her eyes shifted toward the school.
Shit, shit, shit.  Had I been that obvious?  I was surprised at how easily I recognized her from twenty-five yards away. Her wavy brown hair had grown longer, almost reaching the middle of her back.  And her skin was bronzed from the summer.  But as much as I didn't want to think about her, didn't want to see her, I couldn't stop my eyes as they made their way up her bare legs to imagine the soft curve of her ass under that tight skirt.  And as I ogled her, my mind reminded me how difficult these last five months had been.  I'd had nothing but time to think about what had happened between us. And the simple truth was that, as painful as the summer had been, my life was easier without her. She had been disloyal.  And selfish.  And these were transgressions I didn’t think I could forgive. So, I had made a valid attempt at moving on.  I’d even seen a few women, though nothing too serious.
But even though I didn’t want to think about her, my dick had other plans.  It twitched at the sight of her confident stride as she made her way toward the building.  With no luck, I willed myself to look away, to shut my eyes.  I tried to think of anything but grabbing her by the waist and pulling her against me.   Anything to rid myself of my sex-filled visions.  But to no avail.  
For once, I was thankful for Eva’s short attention span.  She had already gathered her things and exited the car, seemingly forgetting about her question.  Thank God.
But as she shut the door, I realized that forgetting the subject completely had been too good to be true. “Oh, that’s Ms. Hamilton,” Eva said excitedly as she popped her head in the window one last time.  “I loved her."
As Eva made her way toward the building, my eyes remained on Lily, penetrating her with my gaze.  "Me too," I whispered.
I waited until she entered the building before I reached down to adjust myself through my pants. This is gonna be a long fucking day.

About the authors:
Elizabeth Hayley is actually "Elizabeth" and "Hayley," two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin). They are currently getting ready to release Sex Snob, a novel centered around Lily’s roommate Amanda, and have also begun writing the sequel to Pieces of Perfect.

"Elizabeth" lives with her husband, one and a half year old daughter and nutjob of a dog. “Hayley” lives with her husband and her own crazy dog. They are about to adopt a newborn soon. Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: "I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind."

Reaper's Legacy by Joanna Wylde

Reaper's Legacy (Reapers MC, #2)Reaper's Legacy by Joanna Wylde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reaper's Legacy is a raw and intensely erotic tale in Joanna Wylde's Reapers Motorcycle Club series.

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart-and her virginity-to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious-her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands-with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club-to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn't Sophie's plan for her son, but Ruger isn't giving her a choice. He'll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she'll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way.

“When a man takes a woman as his property, it’s not about owning her,” he continued, eyes searching my face. “It’s about trusting her. This is my life I’m handing you, Sophie. Not just my life—my brothers’ lives, too. It means I’m responsible for everything you do. You fuck up, I’ll pay. You need help, we’re there. You’re the only woman I’ve ever met that I’d consider giving that kind of power to. Hell, I’m not just considering it, I’m desperate for you to take it.”

“Well I don't care how other people live" I said. "If they want to let their men sleep around, that's their business. But I'll be damned if I'll put up with it. Not good enough for me, and no way I want Noah growing up thinking that's how you treat a woman. Ruger can take his offer, stick it on a fork, and shove it up his ass. Now I need to find a job and somewhere to live, because I'm sure as hell not living with him any longer.”
