Empty Handed Heart (Suncoast Society 66) by Tymber Dalton

emptyc2

Aden aged out of Florida’s foster care system. He built a life, bought a house…and fell in love with Niall, a blue-eyed Irish Dom who owned his heart. When Niall got a job in California, he took Aden’s heart with him.

Niall regretted his move, but thought Aden would follow. Five years later, Niall’s back and wants to reclaim what’s his—Aden. He doesn’t expect to run into Aden while teaching erotic hypnosis at a fetish convention. He wasn’t expecting Aden to have gorgeous Etsu on his arm. He damn sure wasn’t expecting to save Etsu’s life in a malfunctioning elevator.

Etsu grew up smothered by a crazy-overprotective family and her asthma. With Aden, she can finally be herself. She can’t help fantasizing about Niall and Aden together, or how sexy it’d be writhing in pleasure between them. The question is can they make this work, or will her family succeed yet again in driving away her chance at happiness?

Wow, I can’t believe that this series is all the way up to number 66. As some of you may know, I don’t read the M/M books, (It’s just not my kink) but, I’ll read MMF books as long as the female has an equal stake. Tymber has always been fair to everyone in her books and let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to live in the Suncoast world? (Riiight?)

This one features switch Aden, who is a physical therapist with a great job and a PhD. He has a girlfriend Etsu, who he tops. But she has anxiety and severe asthma, nevermind probably the WORST helicopter family in history. But Aden is missing his old master and boyfriend, Niall.

Imagine his surprise when he runs into him at a kink convention, and he saves Etsu’s life while they are trapped in an elevator. But the Irish Dom is back for a reason, and that reason is Aden.

I’ll admit, I was a tad bit upset with both Aden and Niall for the “Elevator” and what happened after. I was even ranting to my own Sir. Not. Happy. But Tymber made it all work out in the end, as she usually does. Thus explaining why I’m still gushing over how much I love this series and Tymber as a writer after 66 of these books. Simply amazing.

STORY EXCERPT 

 

The first class was a snoozer on knife play. Well, Aden thought it was a snoozer, but Etsu, who’d seated them in the front row, seemed enraptured and asked his permission to volunteer. Since Aden knew the guy and had seen him teach before, he let her.

It was fun to watch her really getting into everything, wide-eyed at all the fetish outfits models in the vendor room had been wearing. While she was used to attending Venture and munches with him, this was her first “larger world” experience with kink.

She was absolutely fricking adorable.

He remembered when he used to feel that way about it, how he and Niall had explored—

No.

He wouldn’t let himself think about him today. And he damn sure had to remember to not call him Niall around her. He’d passed the word when he’d first started dating her to not talk about Niall around her, or if they did, to refer to him as Ren, what had been his FetLife name. After what Joel and Fen had been through, maintaining others’ privacy had definitely made sense.

He never wanted to be the reason something came back to haunt Niall professionally, or worse.

As soon as that class ended, Etsu practically dragged him to the next one, just a room over. He didn’t even have time to read the schedule posted on the door to see what the class was about.

She snagged them front-row seats for this one, too. “I’m so excited!” she whispered to him as people filtered in.

He took the convention program from her to read through it. They always had a large vendor floor at this convention. It was a mix of content producers and lifestyle people. For a moment, Niall’s voice filtered through his mind, joking about the “backpack boys” they consistently saw year after year, fans who followed the fetish models with their cameras, their backpacks of camera equipment ever-present.

The room quickly filled. He’d just found the schedule pages toward the back when he heard the room’s door swing shut and the low murmurs in the room immediately died down.

Then he thought his heart would explode.

“Right!” The man clapped his hands once, and Aden knew he was rubbing them together as he walked. “Let’s get started then, shall we?” The voice had spoken from the back of the room, but Aden didn’t have to turn his head to be aware of the man walking down the center aisle between the two sections of chairs as he headed to the front of the room.

Aden saw his boots first, but they were scuffed and dull, no luster to the black leather at all. As his gaze lifted, his cock inflated when he looked into those blue eyes for the first time in five years.

“Welcome, everyone,” Niall said. “Dr. Niall Renard, or DocHypnoDraner, as you might have seen me on FetLife. Not the kind of doctor who prescribes meds, I’m afraid. Although I do tinker with minds professionally.” The audience, including Etsu, laughed.

Aden could barely breathe.

Fuck. Me.

Niall’s last name backward.

I’m a fucking moron.

He’d skimmed the classes online before signing them up for the weekend, wanting to make sure he didn’t run into Niall here.

For this very reason.

Aden could tell his presence in the room was having just as unsettling an effect on Niall as it was on him. Spotted his nervous tells, a couple of stumbled words, and as far as Aden could tell Niall didn’t have anyone with him to act as his volunteer.

Or…with him.

As Niall ran through his introduction to erotic hypnosis, what it was, what it could do, Aden sensed him finally settling into a rhythm. There was very little different from when he’d helped him teach the class, and he’d tucked a few more funny one-liners here and there that the audience loved.

Audiences always loved him. His blue eyes and that Irish brogue, he was fucking charming.

Asshole.

Why can’t I fucking stop loving you?

* * * *

Niall had a moment of panic when he’d turned to face the audience and spotted Aden sitting there. Not normal panic, but legit he thought he might pass out panic.

From the way the cute redhead next to Aden sat with her hand resting on his thigh, and no rings on any fingers—and no collar around her neck—he tried to summon hope even as he desperately tried not to forget anything.

When he forced himself to look elsewhere in the audience, he couldn’t help but be aware that Aden never took his eyes off him. At one point, he would have labelled Aden’s expression as shock, although he knew he’d long ago lost the right to assume he knew him at all.

He’d planned to call on a woman seated toward the back, a part-time fetish model he’d worked with at several previous conventions in California. He hadn’t prearranged it with her, but she’d always told him if she was in his class she’d be happy to volunteer.

As he drew close to the actual demonstration portion of the class, an idea so utterly horrible and perfect at the same time that it nearly made him laugh hit him.

He walked over to stand in front of the eager-looking woman seated next to Aden. “Now, for this next part, I need a volunteer. I promise, no stripping, no clucking like a chicken, no handing over your banking passwords, or anything like that.”

Her hand shot up immediately as she smiled, then belatedly looked to Aden.

He glanced her way before fixing those sweet and sultry brown eyes on Niall and nodded.

But Aden’s expression darkened slightly in a silent warning.

Don’t hurt her.

If she was with Aden, there was a better than good chance he had put her into trance before.

He hoped.

Otherwise, this could backfire on him badly, but he’d use it as an example of how some people couldn’t be put into trance and then call on the acquaintance to complete the demo.

Or perhaps even…Aden.

Niall held a hand out to her. “Your name, my dear?”

“Etsu.” She took his hand and stood to follow him forward to the chair at the front of the room.

She was ridiculously easy to induce—leading him to believe Aden had been keeping up at least some of his skills.

To be this close to the woman close to Aden, to have Aden unable to not see him as he worked with her…

Maybe I’m a masochist after all.

At least, an emotional one.

ADULT EXCERPT 

 

Etsu didn’t have time to think, much less protest.

Not that she wanted to protest.

Niall’s voice from the previous stint stuck in the elevator came back to her, his whispered promises in her ear.

“If I ever get a chance with ye, girl, I’d love to show ye a few things I taught yer Sir. Ye’d like that, wouldn’t ye?”

Fuck, between his blue eyes and that sexy-as-sin voice, she was a goner.

“I bet ye’d love to be squirming between us like a good girl, wouldn’t ye?”

Damn right, she would.

“I bet ye’re wet and eager right now, wishing to see us together…”

Hell, yeah, she was.

“I’d love to help my boy fuck yer sweet brains out…”

Receiving confirmation that Niall was Aden’s lost love only upped the ante.

“Ye’ve no idea how much I’ve missed him, and now it seems he’s sweetened the pot with yer lovely self…”

Maybe I can make a fantasy of mine come true.

They hadn’t parted enemies. Even Aden had admitted to her he still loved the man.

Niall kissed even sexier than he sounded. His hands skimmed down her back and lifted her skirt as Aden stepped in behind her.

That was definitely a hard cock in Niall’s jeans.

The world melted away as Niall kissed her and she felt Aden unzip behind her. Someone took her purse and the useless inhaler from her and she didn’t look to see who, because frankly, she didn’t care. Aden pushed her forward against Niall, who’d slid her skirt up around her waist and was holding her firmly in place with his hands on her hips.

Niall once again broke their kiss. “More, girl?”

“Yes, Sir, please!”

He sank to his knees in front of her, her hands braced on his shoulders. Then he shoved her thighs apart and no way could she have held back that moan when his lips latched on to her clit.

Wait…what am I doing?

Then Aden’s cock found its target. He thrust into her wet cunt, pushing her hard against Niall’s mouth. Niall let out a low growl that vibrated against her pussy and definitelysounded like he was enjoying himself.

She damn sure was.

“Hold it back, baby,” Aden ordered. “Don’t you dare come without permission, or I’ll let him spank you. He makes my meanest mode look like a teddy bear.”

Niall growled into her pussy again, his hands dropping lower, clamped around her thighs, apparently liking the threat of being able to spank her.

God help her, she wanted that, too.

Mean or not.

Aden cupped a hand around the front of her throat and pulled her body against his chest, her head tipped back onto his shoulder. “Maybe I should let him fuck you, too, hmm? Don’t lie to me. Tell me the truth. Do you want Niall to fuck you?”

Another growl from down below, that one definitely an affirmative.

“Yes, Sir. Please,” she softly begged.

“Ask me nicely, and maybe I’ll let you.”

“Sir, please let Niall fuck me.”

He paused with his cock all the way inside her pussy. “Loren apologized to me about breakfast this morning. She thought you knew Niall was Ren. She knew how much I tried to protect his privacy.”

She stared up at him, not sure how she was supposed to react to that. Technically, it was Niall who’d told her yesterday, in the elevator, even if she’d chosen to take his suggestion to blank it out and let him get rid of her anxiety and fear over the darkened elevator so she could breathe.

Breathing had trumped sexytime, under the circumstances. “Yes, Sir.”

Niall’s tongue circled her clit before swiping up it, then back down and licking where Aden’s cock fucked her pussy. Up again. Deliciously hot and naughty.

“You know what happened between us in the elevator yesterday, don’t you? You can remember?”

She swallowed, the sexy sounds seared into her brain, Aden’s voice now bypassing the suggestions Niall had given to her to ignore it, to forget it, to only remember it if it made her hot and want to see it in person. Want to see more of it.

Want to be in the middle of it.

Wishing she’d been in the middle of it that time, too.

Yeah, she remembered it.

Got wet over it.

“Yes, Sir.”

“Did Niall tell you who he was yesterday in the elevator? When he was putting you into a trance?”

“Yes, Sir.”

“And he asked if what we did was okay, didn’t he?”

“Yes, Sir.”

His thumb stroked her cheek. “I’m not proud of this, but the reason it took me so long to make it back downstairs last night when I went to get my phone was because we hooked up. I never stopped loving him, baby. If you want to hate me, I underst—”

“Please shut up and fuck me so I can come, Sir.” She smiled. “Or are you going to make me wait to come until after Niall fucks me?”

She wasn’t sure how Aden would take that, until he crushed her lips under his in a vicious kiss that stole her breath in good ways and made her moan. Then he shoved her forward again, and she had to brace herself against the elevator wall to stay upright as he fucked her.

He didn’t just fuck her.

He fucked her. Possessive and deep and taking what he wanted, the way she loved it when he did it.

Niall sat back, making her moan with disappointment and still wanting his hot mouth sucking on her clit. But his fingers replaced his lips and he fisted her hair with his other hand, using it to hold her in place to bend her over and kiss her. She tasted herself on his lips as he eagerly devoured her mouth.

Using his handhold in her hair, Niall pulled her off his mouth. “On yer knees, girl,” he hoarsely rasped, sitting back. His hand disappeared from her clit. He unfastened his belt and jeans as Aden knelt, forcing her down with him, and now she knew exactly what Niall had in mind.

Vassago’s Reckoning (Demons On Wheels 6) by Ravenna Tate

Vassago

Demons on Wheels MC, 6

Jimmy Vaccaro, the Demons on Wheels MC Treasurer known as Vassago, hasn’t seen Marie Vitale for nineteen years. When she shows up unexpectedly in Creek Ridge with Digger, Vassago is hit by the thunderbolt. Marie was only 11 the last time he saw her, but she’s all grown up now, and Vassago must have her, no matter the cost. 

Digger and Vassago have plans to take care of rival Mob boss Roberto di Stefano on their own. But when the real reason Marie tagged along with Digger from Brooklyn is revealed, it throws the entire MC club into danger, and puts a major kink in Vassago’s plans.

Marie worshipped Vassago from afar when she was younger. But once he discovers the mess she left back home, she’s convinced she will never be more to him than a casual fling. And that’s if he survives the danger she brought along.

Be Warned: anal sex, public exhibition

KG Logo

Ravenna Tate’s Demon on Wheels MC series continues with the club’s secretary Vassago, a.k.a. Jimmy Vaccaro getting a visit from a blast from his past Marie Vitale. Marie is on the run from her former fiancee after helping an ex-friend hide out from her hitman lover. Vissago is torn. On the one hand, he wants Marie badly, on the other, she’s placed not only him but the entire club at risk with her actions. Will she stay or will she go?

Even though this can be read as a standalone, it’s best read in order with the rest of the series. I pretty much love anything Ravenna writes as herself or under other pen names, though this series is a bit tougher due to the MC characters. They are all a bit rough around the edges and not my kind of guys, though they are dominant and kinky, so I have to give them credit for that.

Excerpt (18 Plus for Adult Language)

Vassago had intended to fuck her pussy their first time, but her mouth captivated him. And he hadn’t been disappointed. Now if only he’d learn to keep his fucking emotions under control. But what the hell was he supposed to do when she looked at him that way?

Gorgon still hadn’t given his permission for her to stay beyond the point where he and Digger could take care of business. Hell. Gorgon didn’t want them going to Brooklyn at all to take out di Stefano. He was skating on thin ice here, but the Thunderbolt had hit him. He had to have this woman, and that meant finding a way to convince Gorgon to let her stay.

But for now, it was time to taste her pussy and then shove his dick into it. He’d have her asshole, too, before this morning was over. There wasn’t a spot on this woman’s body he didn’t want to possess.

“Lie back and open those pretty legs. I want to taste all that juice you got going earlier.”

“You do have a way with words, Jimmy.”

“I know what I want.” He pushed her onto the bed, and she fell on her back, laughing. Vassago moved her so that her entire body was on the mattress, and then he opened her legs and dived for her pussy.

Marie cried out as he clamped his mouth on her vulva, sucking hard on her clit and pushing two fingers inside her. “Goddamn, you taste fucking delicious.” He moved his fingers in and out in time to the rhythm of sucking and licking her clit, until tiny contractions fluttered inside her pussy.

“You’re gonna come again, aren’t you?”

“Yes.” Her eyes were all soft and her mouth slightly open. He’d never seen any woman look this fucking beautiful. There was nothing he’d deny her. She only had to ask.

“Too bad.” He turned her over and straddled her upper thighs, effectively pinning her to the bed. “You’ll have to wait a little longer.” Hoping the room was as stocked as all the others, he reached over and opened the nightstand drawer. Fucking A!

Vassago took out the box of condoms and donned one before all the blood left his brain and he forgot to use it. Not that it mattered anymore. This was the woman he wanted. But she didn’t know that yet, so he needed to tread carefully right now. There was too much at stake before he’d be free to tell her he intended to spend the rest of his life with her.

“I’m on the pill.”

“I use condoms on general principles. I’m disease-free, though.” Duh. Would have been a better conversation to have before he’d fucked her in the mouth.

“So am I.”

“Good.” Vassago slipped his hand underneath her groin and rubbed her clit. She moaned loudly, grabbing fistfuls of the blanket. With the other hand, he massaged her ass cheeks. “You have the fucking sexiest ass I’ve ever seen.” He lightly slapped the mounds of flesh, alternating sides. “God, Marie. I want to put you over my knee and spank you until you cry before I fuck you good and hard.”

“Oh my God.” Her voice didn’t suggest she’d hate that. Not at all. But his dick was ready to burst wide open again. Maybe later. After he fucked her half a dozen times today.

“Oh Marie!” Vassago slid his dick into her pussy from behind, and it was so fucking tight at this angle he could hardly stand it. Tiny contractions inside her pussy fueled his lust, as did her load moans when he massaged her clit.

“Oh shit! I’m going to come again.”

“Go for it, beautiful. I love to feel a woman come when I’m inside her.”

That luscious ass jiggled as he increased his speed, fucking her hard and as deeply as possible now. But as sexy as this was, he wanted to see her face and tits. Vassago pulled out and lay on his back. “Climb aboard, Marie.”

She straddled him and gingerly lowered her pussy over his cock, but Vassago wasn’t that patient. He grasped her hips and rammed it into her, moving her up and down so her tits bounced. “Yes! That’s what I fucking wanted to see.”

Marie threw her head back and moaned loudly, reaching up to grasp her breasts. Vassago moved her hands between her legs. “I want to watch them bounce. Play with yourself instead.”

She rubbed her clit while he fucked her as hard as he could, holding off his climax until it was impossible to do so. Those taut, dusky nipples teased him, and when he came, Vassago pulled Marie closer and sucked her tits, one after the other, until all the jizz had been milked out of his dick.

Hail Mary (Hail Raisers) by Lani Lynn Vale

Today we have the release blitz for HAIL MARY by Lani Lynn Vale. This is the next standalone installment of The Hail Raisers Series! Check it out and grab your copy today.

Title: HAIL MARY
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Series: Hail Raisers
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: February 9th
Photographer: Furiousfotog
Cover Model: Quinn Biddle

Synopsis

Mary Persephone Hail
Mary—well-wished-for child.
Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

KG Logo

Hail Mary is the newest release in Lani Lynn Vale’s Hail Raisers series. It is the story of broken brother Dante and Cobie, a woman who has given up on life. Dante has had to deal with the loss of his wife and two daughters, so he’s become a virtual hermit. But a one night stand produces a second chance at life for him.

Cobie has had a life of pain and loss. When she finds out that more heartbreak is coming her way, she decides to throw in the towel, but Dante Hail gives her a reason to live, but the two of them have to get through a few bumps in the road. One of them being bigger than they ever thought. Drake Jackson just might be more dangerous than anyone knows.

I really love the emotion Ms Vail brings out of the reader in her books, and I think out of all of the books in the series, this one might pack quite the punch. Granted, I am not a huge fan of characters getting pregnant from one night stands, before marriage, and birth control “failure”, and there seems to be a whole lot of it going on in this book, probably to catch an emotional response from the reader. Not so much from me after Mary. Still, a great read.

Our Gravity (Suncoast Society #63)

Gravity

At thirty-one, Bryce is a damned good attorney, but it feels like that’s all he’s got going for him right now. He’s just about given up on finding a boyfriend, much less a submissive, and his dreams of being a father look increasingly slim. Then mutual friends in the Suncoast Society take over.

Dustin is relatively new to the area. The realtor thinks his friends are wasting their time fixing him up, especially since Bryce is fifteen years younger than him. No younger guy has ever wanted him before. Except this feels like forever in a scary-fast way. Bryce is not only okay with Dustin not wanting kids, he’s also the Dom of Dustin’s dreams.

Enter Kira, Bryce’s lifelong best friend. She’s about to make Bryce’s dreams come true with a devastating price. Dustin knows he owns Bryce’s heart, but can he accept the guy he loves marrying a woman whose last wish is that Bryce be by her side?

KG Logo

A word of warning. You’ll need lots and lots of boxes of tissues for this one. I sure did. Bryce and Dustin end up meeting through mutual friends during a Suncoast brunch, and despite the 15 year age difference, they end up getting along great. 30-year-old Bryce is a dom and 45-year-old Dustin is a sub. Despite what both have gone through, they end up in a D/s, loving relationship.

Enter Bryce’s best friend Kira, she brings devastating news with her and a decision that could break up Bryce and Dustin’s relationship. What follows is an emotional rollercoaster that only Tymber Dalton could pull off. Not since her earlier book in the series “The Reluctant Dom” have I cried so much. Even the cat Archer had me getting teary-eyed. I don’t usually read M/M books, but this was just an incredible read. 5 Stars just aren’t enough for this.

The Hail You Say (Hail Raisers Book 5) by Lani Lynn Vail

Title: THE HAIL YOU SAY
Series: Hail Raisers

Release Day: January 11th

About THE HAIL YOU SAY

Get out!
He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He’s always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy.
It’s been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her.
He couldn’t be more wrong.
The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants.
Maybe he should’ve gone into the auto-recovery business after all.
I hate you.
Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything.
Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her—morning, noon, and night.
Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she’s breaking a little more inside every single day.
Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she’s constantly reminded of exactly what she’s missing—the other half of her soul.
Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she’s sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she’s lost all over again.
Don’t ever let me go.
Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too…not.
One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he’s missing—literally and figuratively—and suddenly he’s back at square one.
The only problem with being back at square one? He won’t be able to leave her a second time.
Especially since the first time around he didn’t have a child with her to consider.

KG Logo

Lani Lynn Vail’s amazing Hail Raisers continues with Reed Hail’s book in The Hail You Say. I have to admit that so far, this is my favorite book in the series, and I didn’t think it would be. (Though imagining cover model Stuart Reardon as Reed the whole time helped a whole lot too!)

Reed and Kresney are high school sweethearts, but a horrific tragedy ends up tearing them apart. 12 years later, Reed is an Ob-Gyn and Kresney is stationed overseas in Germany when she goes for her scheduled appointment. Reed turns out to be her doctor, and Kresney has the most x rated appointment ever! (so good!)

But Kresney ends up seeing Reed again four months later when she shows up at his office with symptoms, and it turns out she’s pregnant! Reed tries his best to stay away from Kresney, but fails. And she’s determined to do the same. But someone doesn’t want them together at all, and may just succeed at separating them permanently.

I really enjoyed this book. Despite the fact, there was a pregnancy in it, and I usually don’t like reading baby themed books, I loved this one, and I’m really looking forward to Dante’s book!

Excerpt

Routine. Just routine.
Yeah, right.
I knew this was going to be bad. I knew that I was about to do one of the stupidest things in the world.
Yet, that didn’t stop me from entering the infirmary.
Every year we were required to see the doctor for an annual health evaluation. Mine was due two months ago, and I’d purposefully gotten out of it.
I’d tried to get out of this one, too. However, my superior looked at me, grinned that evil grin of hers, and told me in no uncertain terms if I didn’t do it, I’d be relegated to desk duty for the foreseeable future.
She knew I hated desk duty.
Talking to people wasn’t my forte.
And now I was here.
Going into the one place that I knew I shouldn’t be going.
The clinic in town was normally off limits.
The clinic near the base had an older than dirt male doctor that I was fairly sure was a pervert who kept working because he didn’t get to see pussy that young anymore.
However, knowing that the old doc was off on the weekends, and Reed volunteered there for all the ladies that didn’t want to risk it with the pervert doc, led me to where I was today.
Where I knew he was.
Shit. Damn. Fuck.
I’d gone to Germany to get away from him. He’d been assigned to the same base within a month of my arrival.
It might’ve been a coincidence, but I knew it probably wasn’t.
He did it on purpose. Just to watch me squirm.
I swung open the glass door, waved at the secretary who I knew but whose name I couldn’t remember, and signed in.
“He’s running about thirty minutes behind,” the secretary said as she took my information. “I’ll tell the ladies that you’re here, though. You can go on back. The nurse will put you in a room.”
Of course he was, because the motherfucker liked to talk.
Fucker.
Asshole.
I walked back, met the nurse, and she guided me into a room.
“Here’s the paper gown. You can go ahead and change here behind the screen.” The nurse smiled. “The part goes in the front.”
I refrained from flipping her off.
I knew which fucking part went in the front. I wasn’t a dumbass.
“Thanks,” I muttered.
I waited until she was completely out of the room before I changed, making sure the screen was completely covering every square inch of my body before I stripped my shirt off.
My pants went next, then my bra, and my underwear.
After slipping on the stupid gown—part in front—I folded the clothes precisely in on themselves, making sure that my underwear and bra were neatly tucked into my shirt before rolling my pants around the shirt.
I did not want him to see my underthings.
No sir-ree.
He was already going to see my breasts and vagina today. I didn’t want him to see that I wore the sexy underthings for some stupid reason.
Growling to myself, I picked up my phone and blasted off a text to my best friend.
She was probably asleep, but she’d answer when she woke up.
Somebody needed to be witness to this train wreck.
Might as well be Hennessy.

Mikhail: A Royal Dragon Romance (Brothers of Ash and Fire #2) by Lauren Smith

 

 

Title: Mikhail: A Royal Dragon Romance
Series: Brothers of Ash and Fire #2
Author: Lauren Smith
Genre: Paranormal Romance Dragon Shifter
Release Date: January 10, 2018
Blurb
A
dragon never leaves his hoard unguarded.  His heart is another matter.
The second eldest in an ancient line of Russian dragon shifters, Mikhail
Barinov had one job: protect one of the family hoard of jewels. Distracted by
the English virgin queen Elizabeth, who was as dazzling as she was devious; he
lost everything. Five centuries of exile later, news that a construction crew
has unearthed a massive trove of gold and jewels sends him racing to London,
determined to steal back his family’s treasure…and his honor.
Professional gemologist Piper Linwood can’t wait to bury herself in her
newest project, evaluating a hoard of Elizabethan-era treasure. But both her
life and career are threatened when a mysterious, brooding man with a dangerous
smile—and an even more dangerous kiss—snatches the lot.
Unwillingly swept along for the ride, Piper discovers Mikhail is no mere
thief. And the dragon on his back is more than a tattoo. It’s a living,
breathing extension of a bad boy she’s finding harder and harder to resist. But
his heart is a treasure she can never own…because to save her career, she’ll
have to betray his trust.

Sometimes you find a book that just draws you in and completely grabs you. It starts from the first sentence and grips your attention all the way until it’s unwanted ending. You smile, you laugh, gasp, most definitely wish your own mate was handy, and at times reach for the box of Kleenex. Mikhail surpassed my expectations and just blew me away!

Mikhail is a 2000 year old dragon shifter who lives in Cornwall, England, having been exiled by his father over 500 years ago for losing a horde of jewels. Even worse, they were taken from him by the woman who was supposed to be his one true mate. He has lived with his dragon mourning the loss of his mate, angered at losing the jewels and missing his brothers whom he hasn’t seen in 200 years.

But now the jewels have resurfaced, and Mikhail plans to get them back. And he plans on enlisting American Piper Linwood, a gemologist, to help him. Piper is in London to examine and help valuate the jewels for sale at auction. When she meets Mikhail, she’s instantly attracted to him. When Mikhail and Piper kiss, Mikhail realizes she’s his mate!

I’ll let you read the rest of the story, and believe me, you want to. There’s a bad dragon out to steal the jewels, a secret organization, some sizzling hot sex scenes that you’ll need a fan for, and a definitely 4 hanky cry scene. I can’t wait until the next book!

Excerpt

 

Don’t follow him. Piper ignored her inner voice and slipped
after him through the crowds. Perhaps she should have heeded the voice in her
head, but that voice had kept her living a lonely, bored life. Boring meant not
getting her heart broken. Boring was safe. It was long past time she did
something dangerous.
She found
Mikhail in a small drawing room next to the reception hall. He stood before a
fireplace in the dark as if he belonged there. His lean, strong figure and the
dark navy-blue suit were lit by flames. The door clicked shut behind her, the
sound far too loud in the soft silence of the darkened room. Piper sucked in a
breath, watching the shadows play on his dark hair as he turned to her.
“Piper.”
The word was a silken caress that was straight out of her darkest fantasies.
Even though there was a good distance between them, she could hear him clearly,
his voice seeming to come at her from all sides thanks to the acoustics of the
room.
“Mr.
Barinov,” she whispered so softly there was no way he could hear it. But she
swore she saw his lips twitch in the dim, shifting, gold-vermilion light.
“Straying
off the map into unknown territory, are we?” He chuckled as though it was some
private joke. “Here there be dragons.”
Piper
stared at him. “I followed because…” Why had she followed him? Because he was
like the damn Pied Piper for women who had tall, dark, sexy stranger fantasies.
“You
followed because you can’t stop thinking about it.” That voice poured over her
like molasses, and she could feel a delicious burn grow in her belly.
“Thinking
about what?” She didn’t move, remaining by the door. But he did.
Mikhail
walked toward her with a grace that seemed more panther than human. Her pulse
spiked when he stopped mere inches from her. The firelight made the blue of his
suit appear to be a dark, rich brown as he placed a hand on the closed door
behind her and leaned in. The minty smell of his breath, warm and fresh, fanned
her face, and his eyes, although out of view of the fire, seemed to burn with
light—gold light.
“You are
thinking about…” He moved closer, his lips a hair’s breadth from her now. “This.”
Her heart
exploded as he slanted his mouth over hers. Waves of electric, pulsing pleasure
at that exquisite kiss sent her head spinning. It was like crawling up by the
fire on a cold winter’s night and putting a glass of warm brandy to her lips,
with a slow burn followed by a powerful rush seconds later.
Piper
moaned against him as he slipped his tongue between her lips to stroke hers.
She was already curling her arms around his neck, dragging him closer. Mikhail
pressed his body flush to hers against the door. He was so tall, a daunting
wall of muscles, frightening and exciting all at once. He was a man who could
take her without asking. The thought, as forbidden as it was, only made her
hotter and wetter than she’d ever been before. She should have been ashamed of
such thoughts, but in that moment she couldn’t be. There was too much pleasure
in this kiss, too much exhilaration in her surrender to it. She didn’t want it
to end, didn’t want the distant sounds of the party to intrude upon this perfect
unplanned adventure. It would likely never happen again.
He deepened
the kiss, his mouth consuming hers with a fire that left her giddy. And then
something happened—strange flickers of images flashed across her closed
eyelids. Not her imagination, which had been fixed on Mikhail’s animalistic
appetite. This was something else.
Men in
doublets approaching a throne, a queen with a pale face and red hair, pearls
glistening on the bodice of her gown. Then the images changed, a roaring sea
beneath her, icy water crashing against a distant shore, a deep loneliness that
seemed only to grow until…
She saw
herself at the exhibit. Saw herself through his
eyes, a beacon of color and life drawing him toward her like a moth to the
flame of a candle. She could feel his heart jolt, his body hum to life as he
zeroed in on her. It felt as though he would never look away from her ever
again. It was seductive, powerful, frightening, and yet she embraced the rush
of emotions that came from him.
What…how…?
He broke
the kiss to nip at her throat, and she tilted her head back to let his
exploration continue. “It’s as though you were made just for me, moya sud’ba.”
The way he
said the words made her shiver. “What’s moya
sud’ba
?” she asked.
“My
destiny,” he growled, his eyes bright. “I should have known the moment we first
met.” He inhaled again. “Even the way you smell, sweet and wild like Fire Hill
flowers.”
“Fire Hill
flowers?” she said in a haze. His clothes were still warm from the fire, and
even his skin was hot to the touch.
“The
wildflowers from my home. The Fire Hills of Russia. They are soft and sweet,
not too much, just…” He kissed behind her ear. “Right.”
She
blushed, unable to stop smiling. “I smell like wildflowers?”
He made a
deep-throated purr against the column of her throat, and she dug her nails into
his shoulders. “And your taste,” he continued in a husky whisper as he kissed
her again.
This was
madness to be kissing a stranger in a darkened room lit only by firelight. What
else could you call it? But she was tired of being boring old predictable
Piper. Mikhail made her feel wild and reckless, alive in ways she’d never
dreamed. She didn’t want to stop, didn’t want to go back to being responsible.
She wanted to live in this moment forever.
“What about
my taste?” she asked, her voice trembling with desire.
Mikhail stared down at her and slid his hand into her hair at the nape
of her neck, his fingers coiling the strands tight.
A slight pinch of near pain shot sparks into
her womb. Piper gasped.
“It’s like
the sweetest of Georgian wines. It lingers upon my tongue until I ache to
become drunk on it.” He nuzzled her cheek, his breath echoing hers in quick
pants.
All they
were doing was kissing, yet it felt like a wildfire had burst to life inside
her, and there was no stopping the coming inferno.
“You are to
be my ruination.” He nipped her bottom lip, and she whimpered.
Maybe this
was all some fantastical dream. If it was, she didn’t want to wake up anytime
soon. She was kissing a man who made her see things, impossible things, and she
felt…wild. She felt strong, as though
the woman she’d always wanted to be was suddenly within her reach, as if he’d
unlocked something deep within her. She wouldn’t be able to go back to the
cool, collected woman she once was. He’d breathed fire
into her body, and she wanted the blaze to keep burning bright into the night.

Hard Landing

Deep Six Security Book 6

Release Date Dec. 26, 2017



When Maddie Carter comes back from the grave, will Hawk have a fresh start with the one who got away?

Deep Six pilot, former Army Nightstalker, Rhett Hawkins, knew the day would come, but he had hoped it wouldn’t be until after he was gone. Maddie Carter was destined to die young, because that is just how she lived. She flew by the seat of her pants and flying as all she cared about. He’d learned that the hard way, when he asked her to marry him and she shot him down.

But after her memorial service, Hawk just couldn’t get past the feeling that something was wrong with the recounting of the events that led to the crash and her supposed death. Neither the helo or her body had been found. It drove him insane until he decided to do some investigation of his own. After getting conflicting stories from two surviving special operators, he knew he had to go the full distance to settle his mind.

Once in Central America, Hawk realizes there is much more going on than the Army knows. Not only is the now blacked-out military helicopter back in service, Maddie is behind the stick making drug runs for a brutal cartel.

When he has to convince her she needs to be rescued, Hawk sees she is not the same. Captain Maddie Carter is scarred, hardened and has no memory of him or her former life at all.

Back home, when her memory starts to return and secrets are revealed, could it mean he’d only rescued her to lose her again? Would those secrets change his own life forever too?

KG Logo

Hard Landing is Becky McGraw’s 6th book in her Deep Six Security series. Rhett Hawkins, also known as Hawk, always knew that the love of his life Maddie Carter would die young, but he had no idea she would go before him. Maddie becomes one of the few women helicopter special ops pilots in the prestigious Nightstalkers combat flight team, and she breaks up with Hawk prior to heading off to training and El Salvador.

But when a mission goes wrong and Maddie’s helicopter crashes, the government declares her dead. Hawk finds himself not only grieving, but angry at her for trying to compete for her father’s love and live up to her brother’s high rank and accomplishments. 6 months later, he’s convinced that she’s alive, and he takes her brother and some of the Deep Six Security Team to search for Maddie.

Meanwhile, Maddie has been living a life of hell in the jungle, forced to run drugs for the cartel, injured. Hawk is in for a big surprise when he finds Maddie, and they are both are in for a long struggle to get back to normal, no thanks to her father.

This was one of those books that once you pick it up, you just can’t put it down. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the rest of this awesome series yet, but you can bet I’ll be buying the rest and reading them as soon as I can! I just loved it!

Saved4

He saved her life…she saved his soul.

Garrett Hawkins is the most valuable asset to his Special Forces unit, because, frankly, the guy doesn’t care if he lives or dies anymore. Since the love of his life, Sage Weston, was kidnapped and killed with her medical unit a year ago, Garrett has turned the shell of his soul into the armor of a finely tuned fighting machine. Being the first tapped for the unit’s craziest missions is just fine by him. The less time for memories and the agony they carve into his soul, the better.

It’s a plan that works, until Garrett’s world is upended one night in the jungles of Thailand. Memories become reality when the unit is called to rescue a group of kidnapped aid workers, and they discover Sage and her teammate among the retrieved women. Now that Sage is back in his arms, Garrett doesn’t know what to do. He has changed in dramatic ways, especially in the darker tastes of his passion. If he touches Sage again, he’ll want to claim her, restrain her…dominate her.

Is Sage’s love strong enough to let Garrett back in, not only as her fiancé but her Dominant? Can she trust that visiting the new shadows of his life will lead her to ecstasy and not ruin? Or can Garrett’s discipline be exactly what her soul needs to find its way back to life—and love—again?

The WILD boys of special forces are back! Angel Payne’s has brought back her WILD Boys and given them new life and new covers. There are also rumored to be new stories coming to the series, which has now been renamed Honor Bound.

Book one is the story of Garrett and Sage. Garrett has been in mourning for the past year thinking Sage is dead, and he gets the surprise of his life when he finds out that Sage is alive when he is one of the woman he rescues in Thailand on a mission. Garrett brings Sage home, but there are a couple of problems. One, Garrett denies his dominant nature, even though Sage wants him to control her in the bedroom. And her kidnapper isn’t quite shut down like she thinks he is.

This was just as great a read the second time around as it was the first time around! I loved all of the characters, and I’m totally looking forward to reading the rest of this series again!
