New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands brings the heat in this new Argeneau novel, as one woman is rescued by an irresistible immortal …

“Vampires…”

When Raffaele Notte pulls a barely dressed, disoriented woman from the ocean, the last thing he expects is for her to utter that word. The immortal has come to the island resort to help his cousin, but now, it seems, there are rogue vampires dining on unsuspecting tourists. And he soon realizes that not only is Jess a target, she’s also the life mate he’s been waiting for…

Vampires are real. Jess would’ve never believed it until she saw them with her own eyes. She knows she has to get off the island, and her gallant rescuer has offered to help. There’s something about Raffaele that’s unlike any man she has ever met, and his touch sends pleasure through her that is beyond all imagining. But when Jess discovers who he really is, will she risk life as she knows it for a chance of forever by his side?

Excerpt VLIHLSR.png

“It’s a woman.”

“Who is she?”

“She’s wearing a life jacket.”

“What happened?”

“How did she end up in the water?”

Raffaele shook his head at the rapid-fire questions shot at him by Zanipolo and Santo as he carried the woman out of the water. Rather than answer, he merely said, “Bring my clothes, please,” and walked past them, heading for the resort buildings.

The men had already gathered his clothes for him on the way down, so merely fell into step on either side of him as he walked.

“Is she alive?” Zanipolo asked with a frown, leaning slightly in front of Raffaele to look at the woman in his arms as they walked,.

“Yes,” Raffaele said quietly. “I think she has just fainted from her exhaustion.”

“Are you taking her to the resort clinic?” Santo asked as they reached the rows of lounge chairs at the head of the beach.

“No. I want to look her over myself first,” Raffaele said solemnly.

“Why?” Santo asked at once.

“Two reasons,” Raffaele responded as they made their way out of the rows of chairs and reached the concrete paths leading to the various resort buildings. Much to his relief the paths were pretty much deserted at this hour with most people already in bed, or situated in the bar enjoying the entertainment. There were only one or two guests making their way to their rooms and they paid them no attention.

“What is the first reason?” Santo asked as they approached the paths around the pools.

“I want to look her over for bites,” Raffaele admitted.

“Bites?” Zanipolo asked with interest. “What makes you think she might have been bitten?”

“Because when I asked her if she’d fallen off a boat or cruise ship, she said no, she jumped, and when I asked why, she said—” he glanced around to be sure no one was near enough to hear, and then lowered his voice anyway as he finished with “‘—vampires.’”

“Bingo,” Zanipolo said with grim satisfaction as they got past the pools and approached their building. “She’ll be able to tell us where the vampire nest is and how they operate. It’s got to be some kind of dinner cruise or something. Or it could be a day cruise. She could have had to swim a long way.” He frowned over that briefly as they reached their building and walked along the open hall to the stairs, and then asked, “What is the second reason you want to examine her before we take her to the resort clinic?”

“When I got to her she was beyond exhausted,” Raffaele said as they started up the stairs. “Her words were slurred and she could hardly keep her eyes open. I thought it would be easier all around if I read her mind to see what had happened, and took control of her to drag her in.”

“And?” Santo prodded as they exited the stairs at their floor and started along the hall to their room.

Raffaele was silent for a minute, having trouble accepting what he was about to say himself, but when they reached the door to their suite and Santo pulled out his key card to unlock the door, Raffaele swallowed and said in almost a whisper, “I couldn’t read her.”

Santo had got the door unlocked and started to open it before Raffaele spoke, but now he stiffened and turned sharply to peer at him with amazement. “What?”

Raffaele merely nodded.

“Score!” Zanipolo shouted gleefully. “Didn’t I tell you? I told you! Didn’t I? Hot resorts are the way to go to find our mates! I so toldyou that!”

“Yes, you did,” Raffaele admitted with amusement as Santo pushed the door open for him to carry his life mate into the room.

“And he’ll remind you of that every day for the rest of his life,” Santo said dryly as he let the door close, locked it, and then hit the light switch, turning on the overhead light.

“Sì, I will,” Zanipolo agreed gleefully, moving to Raffaele’s side to peer down at the woman he held. Eyeing her almost reverently now, he whispered, “Cugino, your life mate is very pretty.”

“Yes, she is,” Raffaele agreed solemnly, his gaze sliding over her as well. Her lips were full and looked soft, her nose straight, and while they were closed now, he knew her eyes were large and lovely, and an eggshell blue. Her hair, of course, was wet, but appeared to be a dark brown.

“What is her name?” Santo asked, moving closer to look her over as well.

Raffaele stiffened at the question. “I don’t know her name,” he admitted.

“You didn’t ask her?” Santo asked with surprise.

Raffaele shook his head.

“Are you kidding me?” Zanipolo asked with disbelief. “You finally meet your mate and you did not even ask her name?”

Raffaele opened his mouth to respond, but was forestalled when the woman in his arms suddenly began to shriek and thrash wildly about.

GUILTY AS SIN – A Meghan March Review

img_1977

Sin to win; that is definitely Whitney Gable’s new mantra. With the revelations from Guilty As Sin now out in to the light, Whitney’s world comes crashing down one more like it did ten years ago. Things she believed and people she believed in have let her down once more. Enough is enough for Whitney; now her time is HERS. Whitney takes charge of making her life her own despite the town and even her own family’s opinions. But as more and more secrets come out about the infamous family feud, revelations will shake Whitney to the core.

March treats readers to even more look-backs in to Whitney and Lincoln all those years ago. We saw how they started and what initially tore them apart; but now readers will get the chance to see what Whitney’s life was after Lincoln broke her heart that first time. How a strong woman could possibly fall back into the arms of Ricky Rango and away from all the sexiness and raw power that is Lincoln Riscoff. It’s like light bulbs click on as one by one, more pieces of the puzzle are placed and the full picture comes to light. Grief; grief and loss and betrayal are all cataclysmic to Witney’s life. Lincoln is the eye of the storm, the deceptive calm; everything around them rages but those two can’t hear a thing but each other.

As more of the past is revealed, even more bombs from the present are dropped. Whitney’s been through the drama and accusations once with Lincoln and a second time with RIcky’s fans. But now as the two worlds collide, finding a safe haven is rare. I loved that Lincoln FINALLY realizes that in order to win back Whitney, he has to essentially let her go and let her make all the decisions. SHe’s never truly felt power, she’s always been hidden behind her family or his. And as she breaks through her own barriers, a whole new type of strong woman emerges. And she’ll need thick skin for the ending that March writes…and you’ll just have to read to find out about.

img_1971


Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

MUSE – A Katy Evans Review

img_1958

Its fantasy romance but in the realm of escapism. Evan’s latest romance is between two stranded artist in the heart of a New York airport. Desperate for inspiration for her characters, Becka, tries he hardest with a week in New York to find her muse. Without much luck, she’s now stuck in the airport waiting to head home with no new words springing to life on the page.She came here looking for answers to her romance novel and how to truly bring it to life. She never planned on living out a romance herself…with the last person she expected to see on the East Coast.

Noah’s done the same; he’s come to New York to find new life in his acting career. After wishing for more heartful roles but getting typecast as the “dumb but pretty” male actor, Noah’s resigned to his fate as playing a superhero and never the swoony hero. But his muse ends up taking the form of a cute and sexy writer stuck in the airport with him. Becka’s full of life and creativity and Noah’s instantly attracted to her. Spark up the 90’s romance movie scenes as these two play games, get drunk, share secrets, and find true love!

I feel like although this was a change from Evans more “alpha” heroes Noah isn’t lacking in his sex-factor in anyway. He’s charming in a cute and goofy way; the creative type meets the jock type. I loved his interactions with Becka in the beginning; the flirting, the persuading, the innuendos. It’s a whole new side of Evans’ characters that I really enjoyed. Muse is an escape from typical romances. There’s no period of dating and some dramatic reveal that tears the two apart. Its a literal 90s romance come to life: two people stuck in an airport for a few days end up falling in love. And i fell right along with them. A quick but fun and steamy read to add to the Evans! collection!


MUSE-SBPRBANNER-RB.jpg

Muse_Amazon.jpg

A brand new sizzling standalone contemporary romance by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

It was supposed to just be a quick trip to Manhattan.

My best friend was heartbroken. She needed support, and I needed inspiration.

I hoped to love the city. Bustling. Crazy. Inspiring New York.

But I ended up at the airport, heading home in the same condition that I arrived.

In a rut.

Add to all that, missing my flight and losing my laptop—the laptop, where the Best Love Story Ever sat on my hard drive.

Enter Noah Steele. Eerily familiar. Movie star. Heartthrob. Sultry romeo with bedroom eyes.

(But we’re not going there.)

He missed his flight too.

Noah is so smoldering, lip-bitingly hot, he’s not taken seriously as an actor, and is struggling to launch his career in New York.

He’s only ever had superficial girlfriends, so he’s having trouble showing true passion in his acting—the same challenge I’m having with this book.

When we met, we didn’t know that our connection would bring us the change we’d been craving.

That we’d be the very thing the other needed and didn’t know.

Each other’s muse.

*This book is a complete standalone and no previous reading is necessary to enjoy.

These warriors are heating up every page! Shay is thankful for the chance to make it on her own. Though her big brother is helping her out by letting her stay with his buddy, Billy. Former Army Ranger, sexy as sin and brooding as hell. He’s not the ideal roommate due to her intense attraction to him, but he’s kind and charming in his quiet ways. But when their roommate-ship turns in to a romance, things start to really heat up between the two of them. And Shay has more to fight than just her own insecurities; Billy’s wounds go deeper then the scarred skin on his body.

Billy’s used to quiet and solitude in his life. So coming home to his buddy’s little sister in his shower….not exactly boring and definitely exciting. But its in all the ways it shouldn’t be. Billy can’t cross those lines with Shay and she deserves someone more than an angry vet. But the more time he spends with Shay, the more he find himself opening up for the first time. And bringing her in to the Warrior Fight Club world opens the deepest secrets he has and ones he hasn’t shared with anyone. His scars run deeper than even he knows and Fight Club is the one of the only things caging his anger.

There’s a connection with Shay and Billy that sparks the minute the two characters come together. Shay is outspoken and creative in her field as a journalistic photographer. And Billy is her opposite in his stoic and strong ways. Together they compliment and blend like no other. I loved Shay’s tough attitude and her ability to accept Billy’s every layer. Billy’s relief comes from fighting but when he experiences bliss with Shay…fight Club holds a new meaning to him and Shay becomes his beacon in the night. Kaye impresses with her ability to once again combine sexy heroes with rough pasts and even tougher walls to break through. Sexy, with a surprise twist you won’t see coming. add this new romance to your TBR!


What has a sexy, bad-ass veteran hero…
A feisty and independent heroine who won’t hesitate to stand up for herself…
A forbidden, best friend’s younger sister conflict…
And a forced-proximity roommates-to-lovers situation that creates all kinds of sexual tension?

FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS—the second standalone title in New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye’s Warrior Fight Club series! FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS is now available! Grab your copy and join the Warrior Fight Club world today!

This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…

Resisting her only makes him want her more…

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, she’s grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can’t wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she’s there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can’t have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what’s his.

Excerpt FFWHLK

Shayna saw Billy through the windows to the gym with the fighting rings where his club met. He was on his knees facing another fighter—a woman with a long black braid—while a bigger group knelt around the two of them. Shay had just enough time to appreciate that the club included women veterans before the woman attacked him.

For a long moment, they grappled with each other until Billy managed to flip the woman and pin her to the ground.

Three visceral reactions rocked through Shayna.

An almost animalistic appreciation of Billy’s brute strength.

Arousal at the memory of Billy pinning her against the wall.

And jealousy that another woman was experiencing the feeling of the weight of his body instead of her.

Shayna’s heart tripped into a sprint as she stood there, slack-jawed and wanting…

Suddenly, Billy sprang into a kneeling position again as the woman got up and moved to the outer ring of people, and it was clear that some sort of trash-talk being thrown between them from the looks on their faces and the way the others were laughing and clapping.

And then Mo moved into the center with Billy. As big as Billy was, Mo…Mo was like a mountain. His ready smile and deep laugh had earlier put Shayna at ease and allayed any concerns she’d had that she might be invading a space where she wasn’t wanted. But now Mo looked nothing short of intimidating as he stared Billy down.

The men seemed to lunge at the same time. They slammed into each other and worked to pull each other flat to the ground, and then finally they both went down. Shayna couldn’t see who had the advantage around those cheering the two men on, and she realized that she was straining and moving to the side to get a better view.

Whatever was going on, it was much longer before the fighters traded out, and this time it was Billy coming out of the center to join those on the side. A few of his teammates shook his hand before he moved outside of the group to grab his water bottle. And then he tilted his head way back to take a long drink.

And, holy mother of sweaty hot men, Billy Parrish was freaking gorgeous.

Muscles glistening. Shorts hanging dangerously low on his lean hips. Dark blond hair made even darker from sweat. Even the fingerless black gloves he wore were sexy as fuck. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he drank.

Shayna swallowed hard herself.

He wiped his mouth on the back of his glove and capped the bottle again, and then he did a double take as he noticed her standing in the window.

Heat absolutely roared over Shayna at having been caught so blatantly ogling him. And there was a smugness to the almost-smile he wore. But he gave her a little wave and nodded his head as if to invite her inside.

The gesture should not have made any part of her feel gooey, but it seemed her crush on her brother’s best friend had resurrected enough to indeed cause gooeyness. Whether she wanted that to happen or not.

img_1922

Her being a charming boss babe and breaking down his personal walls. What she doesn’t know? He’s been sent by an old rival to find out her secrets. Joe has to follow her every move in order to get his sister out of a blackmail. His attraction to her is throwing every plan he’s had out the window. Now he has to figure out a way to get the girl, save his sister, and navigate his way out of a blackmail scheme.

Lana is intrigued buy her star barista turned office aficionado. He can charm anyone and always has a smile on his face. But when it comes to Lana, he seems to switch moods faster than coffee filters at one of her locations. One minute he’s joking, the next he’s kissing her and the next day he acts as if she isn’t worth her time. She can’t explain the pull she has to him, but she’s determined to figure him out. Peeling back layer after layer, Lana discovers more about Joe than she ever could have imagined. The endearing barista has darker secrets behind that dazzling smile. And one of them may just destroy everything she’s built.

I loved following his journey despite its rocky start. You know Joe is going in with the wrong intentions at the beginning but even readers will be swept away buy his charm. Lana shows what can happen when a business woman, stuck in a rut, can find the one thing to break her out of it and find her passion again. Whether that’s passion for a man or passion for her career, Joe is the answer to both. Secrets come out as Joe and Lana have to decide what’s worth more; their careers or a HEA.

ONCE UPON A REAL GOOD TIME – A Lauren Blakely Review & Excerpt Reveal

img_1930

Whoo! Get ready for one hot, sexy rom-com from the Queen herself! A whiz at trivia, Mackenzie normally isn’t distracted by the hot rocker on stage on their local bar. But he’s making eyes back at her and she can’t help but wonder if one night of wild might be worth it. A whirlwind one night stand turns into a few and Mackenzie is left in a dreamy state with her rocker. There’s just one slight hitch…he’s her son’s new music teacher and a prodigy. She’s not willing to sacrifice her son’s future for her own happiness. So they strike a deal to keep it civil….but can they keep their hands off each other?

Campbell’s seen thousands of beautiful women, a side effect of being a rockstar in your prime. But the cutie with a brain sitting in his local dive bar is driving him wild with hope. And he wants to turn one night into forever the more he talks and touches her. But when she puts on the brakes due to their new…shared interest…Campbell can’t push it. Weeks of friendship leads to stolen moments and steamy kisses. Now these two have to decide if their future is worth the risk.

I feel like Blakely did a reversed Cinderella story here! Campbell is playing in a band under a false name in the evenings and music teacher by day. Mackenzie comes in a presents a future he didn’t think he would get. A loving woman and mother and someone he has intense chemistry with. And there is chemistry in abundance; not only sexual but in their friendship and banter. Blakely has an uncanny ability to write conversations that flow and develop so fantastically between all of her characters no matter the situation. This whole romance is a case of will they or won’t they and Blakely reigns readers in and strings them along just long enough with little tastes to keep you guessing. Some more fun and almost care-free romance from Lauren is just the next read you need!

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?

Turns out he’s my son’s new music teacher. Oops.

But I didn’t know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.

My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.

That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.

Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.

***

I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.

After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.

Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.

All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.

It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.

Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

Mackenzie

I’m not checking him out.

I am solely focused on answering the next trivia question. The game emcee spouts it out for the four teams vying for the prize at The Grouchy Owl bar. The prize being bragging rights.

The hostess clears her throat, brings the mic to her mouth, and asks the question: “Which Las Vegas hotel did the bachelor party stay at—”

I’m perched forward in the chair whispering the answer to my teammate—Caesars, Caesars, Caesars—so we can write it on the answer slip before the hostess even finishes.

“—in the 2009 moving The Hangover?”

“So easy,” I say to Roxy as she smacks my palm and mouths ringer while filling in the answer.

I’m not a ringer.

I was simply fed a steady diet of Trivial Pursuit, trivia books, and endless facts about the world as a kid.

That’s all.

Also, I love trivia. Trivia helped me through some tough times as an adult, and by tough, I mean anxiety-ridden, sleepless, and stressful. That kind of tough.

As the hostess flips her cards to the next question, the guy on stage—the one I’m not at all checking out—adjusts the amp for his guitar. The Grouchy Owl has a little bit of everything—from darts, to pub quizzes, to pool, to live music from local bands. It’s like a Vegas hotel right here in the West Village. Big Ike doesn’t want patrons to leave, so she makes sure the entertainment options are plentiful.

And if that handsome hottie stays on the stage, I won’t want to head home for a long, long time. Except that I’ll have to. I’m Cinderella, and I turn into a pumpkin in minutes.

But for now…Hello, nice view.

As the guy turns the knob on the amp, his brown hair flops over his eyes. He flicks it off his forehead with a quick snap then runs his fingers down the strings on his guitar. Those fingers fly.

I bet they’d fly other places too.

MORE OF YOU – An A.L. Jackson Review & Giveaway

img_1928

If you’re looking for an intense and provoking second-chance romance, look no further. Jackson impresses again with her captivating tale of teenage romance turned heartbreak. Faith is trying to move on with what’s left of her life after her husband’s brutal murder. In her dream home with her little daughter she hopes to find peace but can only sense that someone is watching. And that someone has begun to leave threatening notes and she’s not sure where she can turn for help. The turn she didn’t expect? Jace Jacobs. He broke her heart years ago and now he wants back in and to protect her.

Jace knows he doesn’t deserve Faith or her time; but he can’t help himself when their lives are in danger from her now dead husband, Jace’s own cousin. He can’t deny the pull he has towards her. The dreams he had of her that were crushed by his unfortunate past circumstances. But he’ll do whatever it takes to keep both girls safe. And as more threats come, Jace fears that his own dangerous past is coming back to haunt not only him but the woman and future he lost. She may never forgive him a second time.

I love Jackson’s ability to write deep, tough characters despite light and romantic circumstances. Not only are her heroes handsome and sexy but they’re flawed and damaged in ways they don’t believe they deserve redemption. Jace is no different, and his current story, along with his and Faith’s past story written side-by-side, makes for some dramatic tension. Faith is one tough mama and i loved her resolve throughout the entire story. Her stubborn (good stubborn) ways alongside her daughters innocence and sweetness matched perfectly with Jace’s defeatist attitude toward himself. Mix their tumbling romance with reconciling their past and a threat you will NOT see coming (no spoilers here!) and you’ve got another amazing romance read!


A second-chance, small town, stand-alone romance in A.L. Jackson’s Confessions of the Heart Series.

“I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Jace and Faith’s story. Seriously, the BEST story! 5++++ Stars!”

~Lys, I Love Story Time

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . .

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.
A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.
My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.
I fell hard and fast.
He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.
Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.
Sexier than he’s ever been.
Provocative and commanding.
Successful and powerful.
The man I always knew he would become.
But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.
Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.
Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.
Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance
