Red Phoenix has released the 15th book in the Brie’s Submission series, In Sir’s Arms, and this time around, it’s their story told from the POV of Thane Davis. We start off with Sir Davis on the plane to Dubai and the crash. We go into his memories of first meeting Brie and how he felt on that first sighting. Of course, there’s the experiences at the Training center, issues with Lilly, Anton Durov’s kidnapping, and then we circle back to Lilly and what her final punishment is.

My only question about the series is this…what about the other women? Anton obviously wants Brie so Lea should just give it up now. But Wallace, Master Anderson, and Tono Nosaka ALL have women of their own, but anytime Brie has even a hangnail, they come running to fix whatever is wrong with her, in fact all of the men do, including the married ones. It certainly doesn’t bother Thane because he likes watching Brie with other men, but I can’t think it’s very fair to all of the other women. Just an observation, I still love the series!

Double Trouble by Sierra Cartwright

DoubleT

One love. One obsession. Double the trouble.

This time, he won’t take no for an answer.

For three years, Daniel Armstrong has wanted the beautiful, fiery Bridget Kelly. But when he sees her at Houston’s premier BDSM club and realizes she has an interest in submission, his determination reignites. A charity auction provides a means for him to possess her and do good at the same time. Who could resist? Focused solely on Bridget and the decadent delights he intends for her, he outbids everyone to claim her.

Helpless, trapped by the glare of a spotlight at an auction she never agreed to participate in, Bridget is stunned when bidding for a weekend with her goes higher and higher.

She’s frantic when she realizes the gorgeous, successful Daniel Armstrong has won her. For years, she’s been attracted to the renowned heartbreaker, but she’s kept him at a distance to protect herself.

Then one night, she sees him at a BDSM club, and there’s no doubt he recognizes her submissive tendencies. Now that the devastating Dom knows her naughty desires, she’s doubly determined to avoid him.

When he claims her, she believes things can’t get worse. Then he introduces her to his identical twin, Jacob. Suddenly, she’s faced with not one, but two men determined to make her every fantasy come true and take her to the heights of submission.

Sierra Cartwright is one of my favorite authors, and she’s also an amazing person as well! Double Trouble is a book that was previously published but is all shiny and new!

Bridget gets sucked into an auction by her sister Mary for a children’s charity when someone else pulls out at the last minute. She figures no one is going to bid on her, but she’s horrified when powerful banker and known player Daniel Armstrong is the winner. It takes her weeks before she cashes in on his prize, but she’s really in for a big surprise when his twin brother decides to get in on the action.

She spends a kinky, amazing weekend with the brothers but after it’s over, she’s not quite sure if Daniel wants to continue.

This was a sexy, massively HOT read from Sierra that was even better for me this time around. Sierra’s talent shines through in her characters and spellbinding storylines.

excerpt2

“No. No. No, no, no.” Bridget glared at her younger sister. “And in case that wasn’t clear, hell, no.”

“But—”

“If you think I’m strutting out there”—she glanced out from behind the heavy velvet drapes toward the stage that had been artfully decorated and prepared for the upcoming fundraiser—“to be auctioned off like a lamb, you’ve lost your mind.” Before Mary could rush on with a million reasons why her suggestion was a brilliant one, Bridget took away the argument by saying, “I know it’s a worthy cause and all the money will support children’s education, the answer remains hell, no.” Besides, she had donated her services as a bartender for the evening, leaving her own pub shorthanded on a Saturday night. By any measure, she’d done her part.

“How long has it been since you’ve been out? With a man, I mean.”

“That’s not fair.” Bridget flinched. “I work a lot.” Even she heard the defensive high note in her voice.

“If you actually had a date, you wouldn’t need to spend all your money on batteries for your toys,” Mary pointed out, pressing her advantage.

Bridget glanced around then sighed in relief when she noticed that the other lambs were occupied talking amongst themselves. And none of them seemed as disturbed by the idea of being presented for public consumption as she was. “I’ll have you know my battery purchases are a much-needed part of the economy,” Bridget defended. “Without me, hundreds of people would be out of work. Besides, I can find my own dates, thank you very much.” She just didn’t have time for one. Or so she kept telling herself.

Mary raised one of her sculpted eyebrows.

Bridget shuddered. That look had dragged her into more misadventures than she could count. Because she’d had many years to recognize the tactic, and Bridget had mastered the art of the dodge.

“Look, how could I know Carmen was going to get the flu?”

Carmen Ortiz was not only a TV news weather reporter, she was hot, as famous for her short, tight skirts as she was her personality and meteorological skills. She was used to being in front of people, accustomed to the limelight. And people wanted to date her, which meant they would bid big bucks when she stepped onto the stage.

Bridget, on the other hand, was famous for pouring a Guinness with a great head and fending off randy customers who wanted to pinch the butt she’d wiggled into a pair of tight jeans.

“I’m in a bind. Unless you help out…” Mary paused for dramatic effect while her blue eyes filled with tears. “The entire event will be a failure.”

Bridget couldn’t help herself. She laughed. “Nice try. Tonight will be a great success. You’ve done an excellent job, like you always do.”

The venue’s ballroom was filled with Houston’s elite, seated around banquet tables, dressed in clothing no doubt purchased just for the occasion. A four-piece band was playing a Frank Sinatra tune, and a couple—a man in a tuxedo and a woman in a long black gown—glided across the dance floor.

In honor of the event’s theme, Puttin’ on the Ritz, pictures of the New York City nighttime cityscape were projected on the walls. And now that the dessert dishes had been cleared, energy buzzed in the air.

A Houston news crew was positioned near the stage, in the long shadow of Lady Liberty herself. A society reporter scribbled notes and smiled like a politician angling for office. Half a dozen servers moved through the area with champagne, and the bars, where hard liquor and cocktails were offered, had people lined up in front of them.

“Someone needs to fill in for Carmen,” Mary insisted.

“I agree.”

“I knew I could count on you.”

“Oh, no.” Bridget held up her hand as a physical barrier to keep Mary’s enthusiasm from sweeping her away. “That person will not be me.” Uncomfortable because her absence was causing a burden on the other bartenders, Bridget said, “Look, I’ll write you a check. Including all my tips for a month.”

“No offense, but I can sell you off for a whole lot more than what you make in tips.”

Bridget scowled, debating whether or not her feelings were hurt. “I doubt it. For the love of God, no one wants to be with a bartender.”

Mary had the good grace to wince as she no doubt remembered that Bridget had been dumped by an ex who couldn’t put up with her profession. “Plenty of men are attracted to you. You’ll see.” Her voice contained reassurance and belief. Then she smiled and the whole damn room lit up. “Please, Bridget. This isn’t about you, but rather the good you can do in the world.”

Bridget was torn between sighing and rolling her eyes. As a child, Mary had brought home every stray dog and cat she’d found. She would cry at the store if she saw a stuffed animal that was missing a foot or an ear. The tears would only stop if their parents relented and bought it for her. All of them still indulged her tender heart and cause du jour, but enough was enough.

Unlike her sister, Bridget hated to be the center of attention. She wanted her private life kept private. Besides, she wasn’t sure she could stand the humiliation of knowing she’d fetched less money than anyone else. How could she compare to the beauty queens and cheerleaders? “The answer’s a definite, positive no.”

“But the charity…”

The lines in front of the bars grew longer.

“For the last time, I am not getting on that stage to be auctioned off.”

“How bad could it be? A guy makes a huge donation to Children First. You get a night out, he gets your company, and some deserving kid who is short on opportunity has a shot to go to college. Just think of it. A couple hours of your time and you can do so much good.”

“Find someone else.” Someone who wasn’t dressed as a service worker.

Mary pouted, an authentic, childlike pout, complete with turned-down lower lip. “If that’s your final answer…”

“You’re going to raise thousands.” Bridget squeezed Mary’s hands. “Tens of thousands. And you don’t need me to do it.”

“Fine.” Mary nodded.

Bridget danced a small jig on the way back to her position behind one of the bars. All in all, she’d gotten away unscathed. She’d expected it to cost her at least two months’ tips. Maybe Mary was softening.

“Your sister’s something else,” Joel said while she was mixing up a Long Island Iced Tea.

Not only was Joel another bartender who Mary had pressed into service, he was Bridget’s partner at Fado Irish Pub, the bar they co-owned.

“I’m ridiculously proud of her.” Mary had organized this entire event from idea to invitation, and she had a knack for squeezing money out of even the tightest of Houston’s elite.

Less than ten minutes later, the band trailed off and Mary took the stage. The spotlight hit her. Her sequined gown seemed to ignite in an explosion of color. The highlights in her blonde hair lent an angelic appeal.

At times, Bridget wondered if one of them had been adopted. She was as tall as her sister, but the resemblance ended there. Her own hair was fiery red, and her figure was a bit more…voluptuous. She preferred jeans to skirts, cowboy boots to heels. How could Mary have even suggested Bridget climb up on the same stage?

Mary thanked everyone for coming, then she introduced the emcee for the evening, Steven Benoit, one of Houston’s most popular radio disc jockeys. Tall, with shoulders like a linebacker and a baritone voice that made half of the Lone Star state think of sultry summer nights. Right now, however, he made Bridget remember how long it had been since she’d had sex.

Mary might be right—it was time for Bridget to put away the toys and start dating again. It had been at least half a year, maybe nine months since she’d had a screaming orgasm, well, one where her own hand wasn’t involved.

She finished serving the last customer and folded her arms while she watched the event.

Steven introduced the first bachelorette—a cheerleader for the Houston Texans. She was young and nubile, wearing a gown with cutouts in the sides, revealing her toned abdominal muscles.

The bidding for a date with her started at five thousand dollars and reached ten in mere seconds.

Each man—and one woman—who placed a bid received a giggle and an adorable little wave.

“Puh-leeze.”

“You say something?” Joel asked.

“If I were a man, I’d rather have a root canal than go out with her.”

“I can see the appeal.”

She rolled her eyes. Barbara or Buffy or Missy—whatever her name was—even appealed to gay men.

Bidding ended at twenty-two thousand and change. Bridget was pleased for her sister and the charity, but she thought the winning stockbroker could have made a better investment.

Next up was a Sunday afternoon car race at the stadium in Dallas, complete with pit passes, access to a hospitality tent and dinner with a driver.

One of the servers bustled over to let her know that a gentleman from a nearby table had requested a bottle of wine which cost more than Bridget made on a good day. As much as the words had stung, Mary was right. It didn’t matter if she wrote a check, Bridget’s tip money wouldn’t add much to the charity’s bottom line.

At the customer’s table, Bridget uncorked the wine and poured a small amount into a glass for him to sample. He pretended to know more about tasting than he actually did. She pretended not to notice.

“And now,” the emcee said, “for our next eligible bachelorette…” He pulled out a notecard.

Bridget’s customer nodded his approval, and she started to fill his glass.

“Whoever wins this date will be in for a treat. The owners of Northall Farm, a restored historical home, have offered a weekend retreat in the spectacular Texas countryside. Get away from the city as you enjoy seclusion and luxury with delectable meals, fabulous wines and amazing sunrises, away from any stress or worries.”

The description sounded delightful, like something she would enjoy.

“Your bachelorette is a local favorite.”

Curious, Bridget glanced up. There was no one standing next to her sister, waiting to step into the spotlight.

“Because I’m a huge fan of this young lady, I’m willing to place the opening bid myself. Two thousand dollars!” Steven called. “Gentlemen, who will raise me five hundred for an evening with Mary’s delightful sister, Bridget Kelly?”

Her mouth fell open. She met her sister’s gaze. Mary grinned and blew Bridget a kiss. Then the spotlight operator scanned the room until he found her.

She froze, humiliated, aware of hundreds of pairs of eyes staring at her.

“Close your mouth,” her customer suggested. “And give me the bottle of wine before you drop it.” He pried the bottle from her fingers.

“Twenty-five hundred,” came a voice from the back of the room.

She swung her gaze around the room, but she couldn’t see who’d placed the bid.

“Let’s get you up here, Bridget,” Steven invited, beckoning her.

Oh, no. Bridget shook her head. “No. No, no. No.”

“Don’t be shy,” he encouraged with a practiced, promotional-worthy smile.

Bridget was well-trapped. And at the end of the evening, she was going to kill her sister. And Steven, too. How had she thought for a moment that he was handsome? And if she never heard his voice again, it would be too soon. She was deleting his station from the presets on her radio.

“Who wouldn’t want a weekend away with one of Houston’s best bartenders? Do you like to be shaken, gentlemen? Or perhaps stirred?”

A fresh wave of chuckles ran through the room.

Steven waved his notecard. “Three thousand dollars.”

She gasped. Then her stomach dropped when she realized it was yet another pity bid from him. Bridget would bet Mary had put him up to it. She was relentless in her quest to raise money.

“Ladies and gentleman, let’s show Ms. Kelly some encouragement.”

All around her, people began to clap and chant her name.

“Go on, Bridget!”

Across the room, she recognized Joel’s voice. Cripes. Was he part of the conspiracy, as well?

One of the good-natured guys at the table gave her a slight shove toward the stage.

Helpless, she was swept across the ballroom floor. When she reached the stage, an usher offered her a hand up the stairs.

Steven planted a kiss on her cheek. “You’re a good sport,” he whispered.

“No. I’m not.” She stood there, blinded in the spotlight. She was aware of her too-tight pants, the tuxedo shirt that strained across her bosom and the bow tie that angled askew. Strands of her hair had escaped from the confines of their clips and caused a riotous disarray around her face. All the other eligible bachelors and bachelorettes were dressed to kill. And she was dressed to serve overpriced drinks.

Mary was going to die. Tonight.

“We’re at three thousand dollars for a weekend date with Bridget. Who’ll give me thirty-five hundred?”

“Thirty-five!”

She strained to see who was calling out the bid, but the glare of the lights was blinding. And she couldn’t tell whether it was the same man who’d placed the earlier bid.

“Four thousand.”

“Thank you,” Steven said to a second bidder. “Forty-five, anyone?”

This was insane. She hadn’t had a date in months, hadn’t slept with anyone in even longer, and she’d go out for the cost of a meal.

Steven dropped out at seven thousand, leaving two men, neither of whom she could see, competing against each other.

Unbelievably, the bidding ended at nine thousand dollars.

She couldn’t breathe. Nine thousand dollars for a weekend with her? Who would be willing to lay out so much cash for a date with a bartender?

The man in question stood. The spotlight hit him.

Bridget grabbed onto Steven’s arm for support.

The evening had gone from bad to terrible to a living nightmare.

Time to heal.

Somehow, though, he never found the enthusiasm. Or maybe that was just an excuse. Another way of punishing himself for walking away from the woman he loved in favor of the woman he’d owed.

And since he’d never have either of them again, he needed to kick his own ass, pick up the pieces of his life, and start building something real. After all, there wasn’t a tech gadget he couldn’t design, build, or repair. So why was he so clueless when it came to his own damn life?

It was time, and it would be easy. Painless even, because God knew Evie embodied everything he admired in a woman. Strength. Intelligence. Ambition. Humor. Beauty. She was as desirable as Lyle had promised and obviously enthusiastic.

In other words, he was all out of excuses.

He stood up, intending to tell her to lead the way. But the words that came out of his mouth shocked them both. “I’m sorry, Evie,” he said. “You’ve been wonderful, but I have an early meeting, and I should probably get home.”

“Oh.” He’d surprised her as she was rising, and now she teetered awkwardly on her heels, as if his unexpected words would physically topple her.

He reached out a hand to steady her, and for the briefest moment, he considered pulling her close and fighting his way past his hesitation. She was everything he should want in a woman—with the unfortunately insurmountable problem that she wasn’t what he wanted at all. Or, rather, she wasn’t who he wanted.

Goddamn him.

Goddamn his stupid, unrealistic fantasies.

And while he was at it, goddamn Kiki, too.

He was being an idiot and unfair, and he knew it. An idiot, because he’d made his choice to walk away from Kiki long ago, and he knew damn well that he’d shattered her in the process. Even if he could have seen his way clear to look her up after all these years, he’d forfeited his right to come crawling back.

Unfair, because not ten minutes ago he’d been ready to take the plunge with Evie, and yet here he was, dodging and shifting like a damn coward, trying to swim up out of the deep black ocean of loss and pain. A familiar pain that wrapped him like a blanket, so cloying it was almost comfortable. And he knew damn well that there was only one way to fight it—he needed to take the girl to her room and try to fuck the darkness out of him.

The way he’d done with countless other women.

The way that never worked like it should. That only dulled the sharp edges of his pain, but added no light to the darkness.

That wasn’t what he wanted. Not anymore. One of the reasons he’d moved to Austin was to heal, after all. To heal, and to break bad habits.

Still, it was tempting, and it took more strength than he expected to shake his head again and say very gently, “I really am sorry. I’m not … ready.” She’d been polite enough not to mention the tragedy in his past, but he was certain that Lyle must have at least told her that he’d lost his wife and daughter. Hopefully, that softened the blow of rejection.

She’d regained her footing, and now she stepped back, her forehead creased as her eyes flicked over him, expertly assessing him as she would a witness. “It’s been almost nine years, I’m told.” The sharp edge of her voice sliced his heart. So much for softening the blow. “If you don’t get ready soon, I can’t help but think you’re going to end up sad and alone.”

With a thin, sympathetic smile, she turned and walked away, leaving him to watch her go and wonder at her perceptiveness. Because she was right.

He was going to end up sad and alone.

Hell, he already was.

Bad by LP Lovell and Stevie J Cole

 

BLURB

True power is never held by good men, only the most
perfect of villains.
 And
she and I are both villains…
I stole her, and she’s so very angry. The cartel princess doesn’t like being a
pretty little pawn. She fights me when she should fear me. But oh, how her
defiance excites me.

She would kill me if she could, and I’d ruin her if I had an ounce less
control. What a twisted game we play with sweet threats and cruel promises. I
crave her madness in the most depraved ways because I know she’ll be so
beautiful when she bleeds.

A queen who could set the world on fire and a king who would call it rain. Two
very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.

Some love stories have no heroes.

KG Logo

I’m a big fan of these two writers, and both separately and together they write some awesome books. Bad is the story of Bratva boss Ronan and cartel boss Camilla. Ronan is a man who gets what he wants, and after starting a war between two cartels, he kidnaps who he thinks is the sister of the Juarez cartel boss Gabriel. Camilla is spitting mad and doesn’t make things easy for Ronan, including throwing a knife at his head.

Now, I like when women are spirited, but when they go on a killing spree by stabbing a guy in the jugular, shooting a bunch of them, then lighting a guard house on fire and burning men inside alive while enjoying their screams? Yeah, I have to say I found her completely deplorable. Ronan was no prince either, he takes the kink of knife play to a new extreme. So, I just didn’t love these two. The writing was good, the couple. Bad.

SYNOPSIS

Law student Beth Dreymon is out of money and struggling hard. If she wants to finish her degree, she’s going to have to earn some money and fast. When she learns of an exciting opportunity—playing chess with New York’s most elusive billionaire—the offer sounds too good to be true. Reassured the offer is legit, Beth gets her game face on and prepares to geek out…

 

Only, when she steps foot into Raphael North’s luxurious penthouse, the rulebook goes flying out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. North is beautiful and damaged—a terrible temptation—and he has his sights set on winning Beth over. He’s just a job, though. A job Beth needs in order to make ends meet. If she plans on making her life in New York work, she needs to keep her eye on the prize. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, however, and it isn’t long before Beth finds herself entangled in Raphael’s world of dark desire.

 

Captor.

Curator.

Lover.

Enigma.

 

Beth should run from the devastatingly attractive blue-eyed devil, but Mr North has other ideas…and he’s about to make his next move.

 

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

Raphael North stands on the other side of the abnormally thick glass. He’s dressed in a plain dark blue t-shirt, and a pair of washed out blue jeans. His feet are completely bare. His hair is even darker than it was in his picture, if that’s at all possible. Almost curly, too. It’s then that I realize it’s wet—he must have just gotten out of the shower. There are small dark patches on his t-shirt where water has obviously soaked through the material.
He turns those startling vivid green eyes on me and I’m breathless all over again. It feels like I’m tumbling over some steep cliff face, a weightless sensation turning my stomach over as I fall. Inside, I’m back to wanting to flee the building. Externally, I’m praying to deities of faiths and religions all over the world that I don’t look like I’m about to slump in an unconscious mess on the floor right in front of him. My top lip begins to twitch—something that only happens when I’m really, really anxious. Without thinking, I press my fingertips to my mouth, as if I can put a halt to the twitching by touch alone. A strange look passes over Raphael’s face. A slight movement at the corner of his mouth. I can’t decide if it’s displeasure or amusement. Either way, the reaction is fleeting, barely noticeable at all, and then his face is a blank mask again. He places his hand on a curved silver handle on the other side of the door, and then pulls it toward him, opening it. There are no barriers now. Nothing standing between myself and a man whispered and gossiped about by an entire city. Screw that, an entire nation. I’m in an enviable position right now, but I’d gladly thank the universe if the ground opened up and swallowed me whole.
The first words Raphael North speaks to me will haunt me until the day I die. He angles his head ever so slightly to one side, then says, “Your toenail polish is chipped, Ms. Dreymon.”
Lord have mercy. His voice is deep but soft. It has no hard edges, but at the same time his tone is overflowing with self-confidence and command.
“I’m sorry, I…wasn’t aware of your no-shoe policy.”

Master Me, Please Tour Graphic
MASTER ME, PLEASE
BJ Wane
Series: Miami Masters Book 2
Genre:�Erotic Romance, Suspense
Publisher: Blushing Books
Publication Date: November 10, 2017
He gambles everything to help the one woman he should stay away from. When the truth comes out, will her feelings be strong enough to forgive him, or did he gamble everything only to lose it all in the end?
Master Me, Please
Krista Matthews thought nothing could be harder than losing her husband and Master to suicide until the man he’d entrusted her care to left her also. By the time Dr. Dax Hayes returned from an overseas, volunteer medical tour, she thought she was over his deflection and ready to re-immerse herself in the BDSM world she needed and missed so much without his help. One scene proved how wrong she was and after Master Dax’s timely rescue, she agrees to let him tutor her back into the lifestyle. She hadn’t counted on her growing feelings for the strict Dom or his refusal to take her over completely, like she craved.
Dr. Dax Hayes fell for Krista Matthews the minute he looked into her blue eyes and saw the sated, content look she shared with her husband, Dr. Kurt Matthews. He managed to keep his feelings and lust under control until his friend and colleague asked him to join him in gifting Krista with a menage for her birthday. Knowing it was a mistake, but unable to resist, Dax succumbs to the temptation of this one-time scene, never realizing where it would lead. A year later, after sealing his fate with a questionable act, he flees on a guilt trip only to return and discover nothing had changed-he still wanted Krista Matthews with an ache that wouldn’t be assuaged by anyone else.
Unable to resist stepping in when she gets herself in trouble, Dax again gives in to temptation and aids the one woman he can never have back into the lifestyle her submissive nature needed. When Krista learns the truth, will her feelings be strong enough to forgive him, or did he gamble everything only to lose it all in the end?
DISCLAIMER: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements of power exchange, BDSM, including explicit sexual scenes and anal play. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Master Me, Please. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
Why didn’t you stop?” Dax growled at the other man, each of them positioned at Krista’s sides and reaching to undo the cuffs.
”I didn’t hear her,” he snapped in defense, his posture as rigid and unapologetic as his icy tone. “She should’ve spoken up louder.”
Dax snapped his mouth shut and turned his attention to Krista’s shaken, perspiration damp body as she collapsed into his arms. Regardless of the less than favorable circumstances and his guilt, it felt damn good to feel the press of her soft, lush curves again. Lust joined his rage, the two volatile emotions a bad combination when they revolved around her. Wrapping one arm around her slender shoulders, he allowed her to bury her face in his shoulder for now as he reached for the clothes the Dom handed out.
”My apologies.”
Nodding, Dax watched the man stalk off without a backward glance and gritted his teeth against the urge to snap at him again. His indifference to Krista’s struggles proved what an asinine Dom he was, but nothing else. He sure as hell didn’t intend to call him back to fulfill his duties and take care of his sub. That job just landed in his arms, and he wouldn’t turn away from it this time like he had after Kurt’s death. Temporarily, for good or bad, she’d just become his to see to, at least for now.
”Get dressed. We’re leaving.”

Blurb
Dear Captor,You show me you care, but then something changes. The brightness in your eyes
shines through on your good days, but when you come to me on your dark days,
the blackness has taken over.

At least I know what I’m in for . . . pain.

You’ve managed to crawl under my skin in the most excruciating yet sensual way,
my darkest secrets are now yours, and the emotions I feel for you are something
I’ve never felt before. This sensation is strange, yet exhilarating.

Do you feel the same?

If you do love me, please . . . let me go.

Forever yours,

Elenore

KG Logo

At Last! We finally find out who Captor is! It’s the Third and final installment, and I know I’ve been waiting rather impatiently to find out all of the unanswered questions from this series.While I’m not going to mention who Eleanor’s captor is, (You are just going to have to read this spellbinding series) I will say I was a bit surprised.

He was supposed to have let her run, then killed her. But he’s kept her. When we last left her, she’d been attacked by another masked man who was teaching captor a lesson. I had figured out who one of the players in this sordid tale was, and Eleanor knew her captor was someone familiar. After the attack, the answers all come to light, and we find out just why she got to live. Trust me, this is one series you don’t want to miss!

Justice For Erin (Badges of Honor:Texas Heroes 9)

Susan Stoker

Justice for Erin

Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes

Release Date Nov. 14, 2017



Blurb:

Part-time bartender Erin Gardner is friendly to everyone who bellies up to her bar, including the local law enforcement and firefighters who keep her city safe. That’s where she meets game warden Conor Paxton, a regular who asks to join a canoeing trip she’s leading for her university day job. When the trip leads to something more, Erin couldn’t be happier.

Conor adores Erin, more than enough to help her continue to get over lingering self-esteem issues from her childhood. He’s thrilled he’s found someone who enjoys spending time in nature as much as he does.

Just when the couple thinks they’re on their way to a happily ever after, Erin finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. But there’s no way she’ll just lay down and die. She’s woman enough to save herself―and lead her man to her when she’s done.

Justice for Erin is the 9th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

KG Logo

Susan Stoker has come out with yet again another amazing addition to her Badge of Honor Series. I love her books because her heroines are always so relatable with real life problems and issues that all of us go through in our everyday lives. Plus, she’s not afraid to put her heroines in dangerous situations., have them actually get hurt, then show their strength through it all. (Most books, it’s the hero getting hurt while protecting his woman)

Our heroine is Erin, bartender at the Sloppy Cow.(what a name!) She’s gone through a lot in her life, including massive weight loss and surgery. Conor Paxton is a game warden who is attracted to Erin. He goes on a canoeing trip with her and a couple of her university students, then after having a wonderful weekend, asks her out. But her love of the outdoors gets her into a dangerous situation, and Conor and his friends get together to try and save her. But Erin works at keeping herself safe while Conor works at saving her life!

Again, Susan Stoker has penned a truly wonderful tale with strong characters, a spellbinding, pageturner storyline, and she once again proves why she’s the tops in military romantic suspense!

Seducing The Defendant by Chantal Fernando

 

 

Title: Seducing the Defendant
Series: The Conflict of Interest Series #2
Author: Chantal Fernando
Publisher: Gallery
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 14, 2017
Blurb
New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns to her latest, steamy Conflict of Interest series with this electrifying tale of murder, justice, and intense attraction.Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He’s been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it’s an open and shut case.

But when he meets his client, he can’t help but feel that she’s innocent and that there’s more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett’s case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn’t help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett’s innocence or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?

KG Logo

Chantal Fernando is a new author to me, and upon reading the blurb to this series, it immediately caught my interest as a must-read! I’m glad that I followed my instincts and decided to read this. The characters jumped off of the pages for me with Jaxon as a sexy alpha lawyer and Scarlett a survivor who gets a second chance through Jaxon and a cast that grabs on and comes alive.

Scarlett is accused of her cop husband’s murder when his body appears from the water 2 years after he went missing. The evidence against her makes her look as though she’s definitely guilty, but she hires Jaxon Bently, a brilliant criminal defence lawyer. Jaxon learns that Darren, her husband, was an abusive, bad man, and he goes about trying to clear Scarlett’s name as he falls for her. But Darren had bad friends as well, and Scarlett may be in danger.

Loved this book and I’m looking forward to continuing books in the series! Especially with the Wind Dragon MC group!
