Forever linked, Forrest and Claire are an unending continuum. But sheÕs a wildflower and ForrestÕs roots run deep on the Vineyard. Can they accept home is not a place but a feeling? Tattooed Hearts is book 3 of the MarthaÕs Way series  

Excerpt

She knocked on the door and waited. Nothing. She knocked again, a little firmer this time. Still nothing. Claire reached in her purse and grabbed her phone. Damn, no freaking signal. Another perk of living on the island. Phone signals were capricious. She turned on her heels to the back of the house where she knew he kept the emergency key, then headed back to the front. The night wind penetrated the wool coat with absurd ease, making her shiver. She drew her shawl around herself more tightly to keep out the cold as she fumbled with the key. The door slowly creaked open; she stepped inside and was greeted by a muted house, which was not typical of Forrest. She headed down the hall, the click of her heels amplified with each step on the wooden floor. She entered the family room. In here, ESPN always blared in the background. Tonight, there was nothing but an eerie, hollow silence. A bad feeling slithered up the back of her neck. She dug in her purse for her phone again. One finger dragged along the screen, it lit up. Still no signal. A knot of fear twisted in her gut. ÒClaire.Ó The sound of ForrestÕs voice, infused with a question mark, caused her heart to jump and fill with joy, relief. She whipped around and faced the main reason she came back to MarthaÕs Vineyard.

Ascend (Wolf In Exile) By Amber Ella Monroe


 
Synopsis:

After Thane’s breakout from Area S2, he ascends as Alpha of the ShadowRock Pack once again. His first priority is to stop the spread of an illegal drug connected to the Silex name. Discovery of its existence could shatter a thousand-year-old blood truce between wolf shifters and an ancient race of vampires.

The attraction between Thane and Kalena continues to burn even when they are apart. Thane has made it clear that she holds a special place in his heart. But while they are learning to love each other, trouble continues to brew…

When it comes time for Kalena to expose information about Silex and the harmful drug, she’s more than prepared to do it—especially when it will help dozens of others like her. What she doesn’t realize is that her willingness to help will lead to a revelation so shocking that her union with Thane will be jeopardized.
~

Ascend (approx. 17,000 words) is Part Three of Wolf in Exile, a serialized shapeshifter paranormal romantic suspense that contains a cliffhanger at the end. Intended for Mature Audiences only.
 
I was pleasantly surprised by the latest installment in the Wolf In Exile Series. Just when I think I have it figured out the author adds another curve ball that leaves my jaw dropping.  I love that this books starts right off where the other when left off. Kalena has since been rescued after sharing a steamy love scene with Thane. Although they have a new love Thane knows shes his mate. But these two have a lot to learn about each other. When secrets are revealed how will they survive? Area S2 has nothing on the bomb that’s about to explode when all is revealed.

Things seem to be going well since the two have been reunited but Kalena has memory loss and Thane is trying to survive in a world he has been removed from. I was surprised at the turn this book had taken toward the end. And wanted to scream when the author left us on yet another cliif-hanger. All in all this was a very quick read but as a reader I wanted more. As soon as the story was getting good it ended. Hopefully the author doesn’t make her fans wait too long.

Healed( Damaged Souls Book 3) By: Twyla Turner

Synopsis:

Lexi and Sloan have narrowly escaped one of their demons, only to face another. One that neither of them could've ever expected. Their issues continue to threaten their fragile relationship. Pulling them further apart and possibly pushing them into another's arms. Will Aaron and Victoria finally get what they want? Or will it be Sloan's parents that rip them apart? Find out in Healed, the emotional conclusion to the Damaged Souls Series.  

About Twyla Turner:

I was born and raised in Joliet, IL. I wrote my first story in the 3rd grade and fell in love with creating my own world. But throughout the years I have lacked the discipline to actually sit down and write. Even with a minor in Creative Writing (which should have been my major).
I have been a avid romance novel reader since Jr. High and have read hundreds. I have lived in Chicago, Japan, California and now reside in Arizona. And I wanted nothing more than to combine my love of romance, writing and traveling and put them in a book.



This is the conclusion to Lexi & Sloan rollercoaster romance. As much as I love these two characters I am so happy to see them get their hea. This story is told in layers and this final layer was just mind-blowing. Part two left us with the craziest cliffhanger and I honestly didn’t know how the author was going to let part three play out. When I tell you that these two have went through the most things in their short time together i.e. crazy exes, ptsd, abuse just to name a few.

This story really focused on the two as individuals and how they overcame their own issues. I will say that Sloan kind of annoyed me with some of the decisions he made regarding his relationship but as a reader you have to remember all the baggage these two have. And Lexi she came a long way but when times got tough she would often draw within herself and just shut down. I wanted to yell at her speak up, gain your voice. But the author really does take these two characters on a journey of growth. This story was not without the drama and old characters coming in to destroy the characters happiness. And the ending!!! Let me just say it was well deserved. One of the things I had issues with is the grammar. The content and the way the story flowed was on point. This author can tell a wonderful tale that you don’t get with most stories these days you know an actual plot. But the grammar made it hard to focus on the story at times. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.

ShutterGirl By: CD Reiss


 
Are you ready for a different kind of love story? 

Meet Michael & Laine in this Hollywood themed second chance romance by CD Reiss!

 

NOW AVAILABLE!

 



Barnes & Noble - http://bit.ly/1d3hzub


Kobo - http://bit.ly/1bBO020   

 

ShutterGirl Book Trailer:


 



Blurb

 

ONE movie star on the cusp of greatness

ONE broken girl who touched him

TEN years to forget her

A MILLION stories in Hollywood

 

 

I am not hurt.

I don’t need a second chance with him, or a life I thought I had.

While he was out forgetting me to become a movie star, I was building a career out of nothing. A career as a paparazzi, but a career. For a foster kid who bounced around every home in Los Angeles, that wasn’t easy.

This camera is all I have.

He’s nothing to me. Every time I take his picture and sell it, I remind myself that I did it all without him or his approval, his cinnamon smell or his clear green eyes. He lights up the screen like a celestial body, but he’s nothing but a paycheck to me.

He can throw my camera off a balcony, and nothing has to change. We can stay king and queen of the same city, and different worlds.

Except this is Hollywood, and here, anything can happen.




Excerpt #1

 

I stroked his hair, waist deep in peace, all worry gone for the moment, and floating in no more than an ocean of gratitude. I must have been more vulnerable than I realized, or he’d reopened some wound with his kindness, because though my sweet reverie stayed, as the minutes passed, a layer of need fitted itself on top of it.

I needed to tell him, if not the details, the outlines of who I was.

“I want you to know,” I whispered, starting somewhere small, then everything I didn’t want to say spilled out. “I have stuff. I’ve never been to jail, but you know, it’s stuff, and it’s ugly, and it scares me. Because, I mean, you’re so perfect, and I’m… I’m just a mess. I’m not whole. I’m a bunch of pieces of a person I cobbled together.” My eyes got wet when I thought of the comparisons between us and that picture in my silverware drawer. “So if you have to move on when you realize that, I’ll understand. You have an image, and if anyone understands protecting a career, it’s me. I mean, I’ll be mad, don’t get that wrong, but also.” I swallowed and blinked, shifting my head so he wouldn’t feel the tear on his forehead. “I won’t blame you.”

I waited for an answer. Anything. A change in position or a word on any subject. The weather. Sports. Something. But all he did was breathe.

I smiled so wide, tears fell into my mouth. He was sleeping.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

CD Reiss
 
 
CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Dare: A Dont Knock It Novel By: Lyla Marie Ross


Synopsis:

Charm Nixon, a sexy, independent woman, is having trouble finding a man that she'll keep longer than a one night stand. She thinks all men are flawed, but her best friend thinks Charm's standards are ridiculously high. When Eden challenges Charm to a dare which forces her date a man "beneath her station," Charm is in for the ride of her life. Beyond finding the sex explosive, will Charm find a man she actually wants to keep?

The Characters:





Meet The Author:

 I work a regular office job by day and write my "romantica" at night or at my lunch break. I started writing romance with dynamic sex scenes because I enjoy great love stories and great sex. Some people would be embarrassed to say that, but I'm not. I started the Don't Knock It series because women are often afraid to try new things. They also allow people to talk them out of who they should or shouldn't date. In Dare it was important for Charmaine to go beyond her comfort zone and in Deep, Eden went beyond her comfort zone but in a different way.



This book is unlike anything I have ever read. It is very raw and in your face. Dare is not for the fait at heart but take a chance and try something a little unconventional.,,,,,

Charm is what I like to call “that girl.” She is one who has it going on but knows she has it going on. She has high standards and an even higher sex drive. Because she can be very vain she uses sex as a weapon. No man is ever good enough. Basically what Charm wants is just too much and very unrealistic. This book and character I am sure every woman has known someone like Charm at one point in their life. Loving friend but misguided when it comes to love and life.

Let me repeat again this book is very gritty and high on the sex aspect but once you dig a little deeper in the story you will realize that sex just masks the deeper issues and Charm like many characters are flawed.

Now on to Zander. The chapter introducing Zander I won’t ruin it for readers but all I can say is wow!!!!! Zander like Charm have been hurt by love once in life and has never overcome or even faced the issues. He is a man that loves them well sex them and leave them. You see Zander has some shortcomings that fact that he is short but well-endowed is his weapon. At one point I wanted to yell at both characters and tell them to get over themselves. When these two meet it’s like a hurricane meeting a volcano. What do you do when you meet another version of yourself? Do you run or face the fact that love has found you?

This book was well edited and the characters were well developed. The author has talent but I wished there was more of the characters interaction then just sex. Some scenes were a bit repetitive. But all in all this was a well told story I hope that in the next story we get more on Eden and deeper in the story then just sex. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.

Knocked Up By The Bad Boy By: Vanessa Waltz


Synopsis:
The last thing I need is a wife and kid.

The only settling down I do is at night, when I take a girl home to f*ck. I get laid to unwind from the chaos in my life. I live to hear them scream my name, but one night is all they get.

One night was all I needed.

Until I knocked up Maya.

It was supposed to be one night. But one wild night made me want another, and another. I’m addicted to every inch of her body. Now that I have her, I can’t let her go. I thought I never wanted a family, but now I can’t imagine life without one.

Only, there’s a problem.

Her father wants me dead.

I didn’t know she was his daughter.
I don’t give a damn.
She’s mine. Our child is mine. I protect what's mine.
Even if it means war.
 
 
Maya grew up in a prison of a home. Her father is the President of the local MC and has all these rules for how his family should live which is basically not at all. Maya is a wild spirit she knows there is much more to the world then the limited view her father has shown her. Family is everything and outside of family all are considered enemies. What happens when Maya sleeps with public enemy number 1? What’s a girl to do when you never have been loved so good but your family is all you ever known?

Johnny if you remember him from the first book is a bit of jerk. Not that he isn’t in this book but readers get to see more of Johnny as the man instead of the mob boss. He has been married twice and never felt anything for the other women as he has for Maya. He introduces her to a world of freedom sexually and emotionally. Just when he has everything he thought was denied enemies attack and they come in the form of family.

I understand Maya has been sheltered in a sense but when will she stand up for herself? Her father is abusive and her mother just watches and justifies his behavior. When she finally gets free she puts herself back in danger. I really wanted her to get a backbone at some point. She had all this courage with Johnny but nothing when it came to her father who put her through hell. Johnny being the bad boy he is will not tolerate disrespect from anyone and I loved that he stood up for Maya and made her face some harsh truths. The ending felt a bit rushed and the timeline was a little up in the air. One minute she was pregnant then the next scene the kid was 2 years old. I wish as a reader we got to see more of Johnny and Maya as a couple instead of sex scenes after a while they were redundant. This wasn’t my favorite story. I just felt as though it could have been more fleshed out because there was good material it was just glossed over with sex scenes. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.

Ironic By Harper Miller Blog Tour

Please choose one of the top banners you want to use then delete the other :) 






TITLE: IRONIC

AUTHOR: HARPER MILLER 

Genre: Contemporary Erotica, Interracial/Multicultural Erotica, BDSM Erotica

(due to light bondage) Content is for a mature audience

Amazon Release Date: April 29, 2015 Official Release Date: May 1, 2015








I’ve got a funny story for you. A funny story I need to get off my chest. I can’t share it with any of my friends, so I’m sharing it on a kinky message board full of strangers. Well, it is the Internet.... Although the Internet provides a sense of anonymity, names have been changed to protect the innocent (and not so innocent). Job-related details have been distorted to protect my identity, but despite the ambiguous details, this is a true story. A story very worthy of the acronym FML. *Disclaimer* This is a short erotic comedy. Not a novelette, novella, or novel, but a short story. Ironic is the first installment in The Kinky Connect Chronicles. The Kinky Connect Chronicles are short erotic stories all wrapped up in a neat little bow. No cliffhangers in the lot!



© Harper Miller 2015
There’s no reason for a single, thirty-five-year-old woman with intellect, a sense of humor, her own apartment, and a body to die for—such as myself—to not be getting laid on the regular. Well, aside from the fact that I haven’t had much time to date.
I do happy hours, and I go out with my girlfriends when I can spare the time, but still, a steady guy hasn’t happened. What Jason and I have is nice, but he’s not the long-term guy. And as appealing as the opposites-attract ideology is, in an election year, we’d likely want to kill each other. I’ve been told I’m too picky. Why is that always the case? Why do women always get called out for having standards? Like we’re just supposed to fall for any guy who gives us the time of day? Whatever.
My philosophy? Why the heck shouldn’t I be picky? Picking a new man is like selecting a new purse. When you have the means to acquire top quality, you don’t go for bargain-basement brands. Aim high, ladies, aim high. If you can afford the cream of the crop, why not indulge?
I know my worth, so I hold out. One day I just might get lucky, but I’m a realist. There’s no breath-holding over here. True love is overrated. Until a suitable prospect comes along, emergency dick will do just fine.
The closer it gets to one in the morning, the antsier I become. I try to forge ahead with my Good Wife marathon, but I find my attention span isn’t what it was a few hours earlier. Julianna will understand; we can reconvene at a later date.
When I get up for a glass of water, the smooth cashmere moving over my naked flesh makes every step toward the kitchen agonizing. My clit pulsates as the material caresses my nipples. The water quenches my thirst, but I need something stronger. I’m naked, single, and horny in the wee hours of the morning. Bad, bad, bad.

Summer 2011

 

No more than thirteen years old, a girl in hand-me downs and ill-fitting shoes stomped down the sidewalk. Everywhere her plain brown eyes landed was brokenness.

            The row houses that made up her run-down neighborhood were broken.

            The few cars parked along the curb belonging to people who used the vehicles as temporary shelters when they couldn’t afford the rent were broken.

            And the neighbors … The neighbors were the worst. Their entire beings were broken. Their minds crumbled by choices they were pushed by life to make. Their physical bodies aged before their time by lack of access to quality food choices. Their psyches irreparably damaged by parents who were stuck in a generational cycle they didn’t have the tools to break through.

            Broken.

            Everyone who lived in this part of town was broken.

            And what did brokenness lead to?

            Without a backward glance, she ran from the home where just weeks prior she had found her parents with their mouths agape, forearms corded off, and needles sticking from their veins.

            She ran from her brokenness.

            The teen rounded a corner and slowed her pace to a cool, unaffected gait before she approached the men who were huddled together. This was the place, the corner, in Lower Manhattan to get the best drugs, everybody knew that—addict or not.

            The teen gripped the crumbled money in her pocket, a gift from the police officer who felt the need to check on what was left of her family from time to time. With a kind smile that reached his violet eyes, he’d told her to buy something just for her. Maybe he thought she’d treat herself to some earrings or her favorite ice cream—little kid stuff—but she had lost her childhood a long, long time ago.

            Around her, men and women with sunken, scabbed-over cheeks became the norm. The little girl stuck out like a sore thumb but had no intention of remaining an ‘other’ any longer. The euphoric smile on the faces of her neighbors, her deceased parents, and sibling—she wanted that, even for just a little while.  

            “You got anything?” she muttered to no one in particular.

            “You lost, kid?” the young man in the center of the group asked, snickering to his companions.

            “I’m not a kid,” she said with defiance. Her face rose higher in the air and she squared her thin shoulders. Even with a mature body, the freckles that littered the bridge of her nose and spread to the apples of her baby face said otherwise.

To amuse her he said, “Okay. So you’re no kid.” He peered at her closer. “But hand to God, I swear I’ve seen your face before.”

            He probably had.    

            Before their deaths, images of the girl’s parents’ faces hung in neighborhood stores identifying them as regular shoplifters. They had been arrested so many times they were on a first-name basis with their arresting officers.

            With her face blazing in embarrassment, the little girl toed the cracked pavement. “I want your best.” Her words came out low and stammering. She wasn’t a kid, and she planned to prove it. “I want the best you have,” she repeated louder then shoved the formerly crisp bills into his face.

            Greed alighted his eyes.

            “Yo, man, she’s only a ki—”

            “Shut the fuck up,” he yelled at the sole dissenter. “If it’s green, we take it.” He pocketed the money then looked around.

            “Hey,” she shouted, taking a step toward him. If he thought he would stiff her, he had another thing coming.

            “Relax, kid,” he said with a canny smile. “I wouldn’t do you dirty when your folks were my biggest customers.” His evil laugh chilled her though the air was balmy. “Take a walk with my friend over there.”

            The young thug had at least a hundred pounds on her and towered over her by maybe a foot and half. She tucked her chin into her shirt and kept her gaze low, following the boy’s sneakered feet to a nearby abandoned house.

            “Stay here.” He looked up and down the street to ensure they weren’t followed before disappearing behind a door that was falling off its hinges. Before the girl had a chance to worry, he was back and shoving a small opaque rectangle in her hand.

            Almost too beautiful, the deep purple petal and green stalk painted on the waxy paper dominated the small expanse. She giggled at the ornate flower.

            “Take Over. Best shit on the market,” he said before walking away.

            Holding the pretty bag against her heart, she turned and walked in the opposite direction.

Avi has a checkered past she doesn’t trust many with her secrets let alone her heart. Through her best friend well only friend Anna she crosses paths with the King of New York Noah Adams. Not used to running in the same circles Avi dismisses him. I mean really who is he except a gorgeous Adonis who oozes confidences and makes her heart flutter? But Avi is much more than meets the eye she has secrets of her own and has issues with abandonment. Noah is more than confident he can break down those walls Avi has put up brick by brick if that’s what it would take to have her.

Noah doesn’t like the word no. He doesn’t take it from his enemies and he won’t put up with it from his woman. Noah is an alpha male in the true sense of the word the only thing is like many dominant characters he has some darkness that rules his life. He is in urban terms a street pharmacist/drug dealer. It’s the only life he knows and because of this life it has made him the ruthless man he is today. Seemingly from two different worlds Avi and Noah have more in common than meets the eye. I will say that I love the fact that Avi made him work for her affection. Although at times she was a little annoying with the cat and mouse game. I just wanted to tell her, “go to him, let him help you.” This book has some very “deep” elements to it. It’s more than just a romance it’s a mystery. You see there is some drug hitting the street a lethal drug, enemies are working behind the scenes and little Avi is right in the enemies sights. Will Noah and Avi new found love conquer their enemies of will Avi run like she has been known to do?

What I loved about this story is that the characters were multidementional and as readers we get to see the characters grow within their relationship. Each character has a connection and when you find out what it is whoa!!! Stay tuned for book 2. If you are looking for a mystery, mixed with some good old fashioned romance this is the book for you. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.

Ironic By: Harper Miller

Synopsis:

I’ve got a funny story for you. A funny story I need to get off my chest. I can’t share it with any of my friends, so I’m sharing it on a kinky message board full of strangers. Well, it is the Internet. . . .

Although the Internet provides a sense of anonymity, names have been changed to protect the innocent (and not so innocent). Job-related details have been distorted to protect my identity, but despite the ambiguous details, this is a true story. A story very worthy of the acronym FML.



You know how you read something and you just can see someone you know in the story? You just think to yourself that’s so and so because it so funny and spot on? If you know anyone who has tried internet dating and just a single girl going through dating woes this story is laugh out loud funny. I felt like this story was a mix of the shows: Sex and the City, Girlfriends and Catfish.

Mimi is a lawyer who is powerful in her own right but every now and then she gets an itch that needs to be scratched that doesn’t include b.o.b. (battery operated boyfriend). With a fetish for kink it’s hard in her profession to keep her anonymity so she does what many women do online date. Now I have tried online dating and let me tell you Mimi is something else. When she sees something she likes she doesn’t hold back. I know some readers are turned off by the whole sub/dom relationship let me just say although Mimi is a sub she is no one’s pushover. This girl is what my grandmother would call fast or being manish. But really who can blame her when the man looking back at you on the computer screen is anything less than a dream.

Aden talk about a wet dream!!! He is a man who doesn’t beat around the bush. He meets Mimi on this online website and instantly they both are attracted to each other. The banter between the two is epic. I honestly could see a lot of my friends talking like this. What’s so great about this story is that it’s so real and honest. But this isn’t a sappy love story these two enjoy some kink and pushing each other buttons. This was supposed to be a one night stand fake names were added but what happens when it’s just so good you want more?

One of the issues I had with this story is that it was short. And I know it’s a disclaimer that this is a short read but I would like to petition the author to make this a full length novel. Some of the acronyms for the bdsm lifestyle I had to look-up I would have liked for a definition of terms to be added in the book. I had very few issues with this book and would suggest if you are looking for a short read to pass the time that is enjoyable and well edited then one-click this book. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.
