Excerpt from Twisted Together (MITD, #3)

Desire unfurled faster and faster in my belly.
Q frowned, impossibly making him more roguish and handsome. “Tess…? How do you
How did I feel? Amazing. Lusty. Powerful.
I stretched again, arching my back as water lapped
around my body. I wanted to moan with
how good I felt. I’d never been so warm or contended or horny.
My eyes snapped to Q’s. Him. I had to have him.
“You’re so beautiful,” I murmured.
Q froze, his eyes searching mine. Slowly, his lips
turned up into half a smile.
I pressed my thighs together. I couldn’t stop my body from overheating and needing. I’d
been cursed or charmed—some sort of potion lived inside. I had no other explanation for how
much I needed him.
I laughed, throwing myself headfirst into whatever
spell I was trapped in. My voice fell from
my mouth, tinkling and chiming like a bell. Was that truly me? I sounded magical. I sounded like
a princess straight from a storybook.
Who was I? Sleeping Beauty who’d been woken by her
My eyes locked onto Q’s. No. I was the one who’d fallen head over heels for a beast who
spoke in foreign tongues.
A flush of heat and wetness built between my legs.
I would give anything to have his tongue
on me. I wanted his head between my thighs. I wanted his fingers clawing at my hips. I wanted
to be used, bruised, adored.
Q cocked his head, chuckling under his breath. “I think Franco miscalculated the dose.”
I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make
me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart,
sending tiny orgasms exploding in my
I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed

Review: Castaway in the Caribbean by Janice Horton

Today I have the great privilege of bringing to you the newest book by Janice Horton.  It is a suspenseful and comedic at times romance set in the beautiful Caribbean.  Written in the wonderful style of Janice Horton’s you will find yourself castaway in this wonderful novel.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

25219869Book Blurb:

Vacationing on the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, Janey Sinclair is persuaded by her magazine editor boss to do a quick island hop in order to supervise an impromptu photo-shoot for the front cover. With no flights immediately available, Janey is directed to the harbour.

Captain Travis Mathews hates tourists, although he’s not above making a bit of money off a prissy and sharp tongued young British girl when she’s desperate to get to the neighbouring island of Tortola.
After striking a deal, they set off together in Travis’s weather-beaten old boat. When the vessel comes to a sudden full stop in the sea, the mismatched pair end up as castaways on an uninhabited island.
In this fast moving romantic adventure about a vacation that turns into a tropical nightmare there’s more fun than you’ll find in any travel brochure.


Janey Sinclair is surprised by her wonderful boyfriend with a trip to the Caribbean.  Once out of dreary London and on the sandy beaches she feels worlds away.  That is until her editor asks her to take a detour from her trip to check on a photo-shoot.  When Janey goes looking for a flight she finds none.  She is left with only going on a charter boat to the island of Tortola.  It is Captain Travis Matthews job to get Janey there and back.  Unfortunately, due to a mistake regarding the fuel and Janey’s over zealous need for control they are stranded and forced to stay on a nearby island.  While on this island tensions between the two become hot.  But before they do anything they would both regret they are forced to defend themselves and their boat from Pirates.  These aren’t the Jack Sparrow kind either.  Just when Travis and Janey think they are safe and nothing can go wrong that is when the worse happens and they are forced to look at their lives and question what they really want.

This was a great fun read.  Janice really wrote a great story with lots of details of the Caribbean.  Her research really paid off here.  If you have ever seen the movie 7 days and 7 nights you will see some coincidental story line similarities.  While reading this I was concerned that this was too close to the movie, but thank goodness for good twists and turns because Janice takes us on a much more suspenseful ride then the movie ever does.  The vivid back drop that is painted really becomes a character with in the story.  Janey and Travis are great but it’s that scenery that captivates the imagination and helps pull you into the danger, fun and excitement that they experience.  Overall, a very entertaining and fun read.  Another great addition to the world of fiction by Janice Horton.

After fourteen years together, starting a life of our own on this island, five deployments and countless letters I’ve written you through it all, I finally go out to the mailbox and see something I’ve always dreamed of: an envelope with your handwriting on it. For one moment, I actually thought you’d changed your mind, that all the awful things you said to me were just your way of coping after everything you’d been through. I was still here, Fisher. I was still here, holding my breath, waiting for you to come back even though you told me you never would. You always said you’d find your way back to me. Out of all the lies you’ve told me, this one hurts the most.

Enclosed you will find the signed divorce papers, as requested.
I hope you find what you’re looking for. I’m sorry it wasn’t me.

To get the ending they want, Lucy and Fisher will have to go back to the beginning. Through the good and the bad, they’ll be reminded of why they always made their way back to each other, and why this time, one way or another, it will be the last time.

Review: Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott

Today I have the awesome opportunity to review Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott.  This is a fantastic and addictive YA novel.  Its emotional and brings you right back to your high school days.  Be sure to keep reading after the book blurb to see my full review.  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

Join us in celebrating the release of WILD RECKLESS by Ginger Scott!

Very Mature YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: March 17, 2015
Amazon : Google Play : iBooks
Kensington Worth had a vision for her senior year. It involved her best friends, her posh private school in downtown Chicago and time alone with her piano until her audition was perfected, a guaranteed ticket into the best music programs in the world.
Instead, a nightmare took over.
It didn’t happen all at once, but her life unraveled quickly—a tiny thread that evil somehow kept pulling until everything precious was taken from her. She was suddenly living miles away from her old life, trapped in an existence she didn’t choose—one determined to destroy her from the inside, leaving only hate and anger behind. It didn’t help that her neighbor, the one whose eyes held danger, was enjoying every second of her fall.
Owen Harper was trouble, his heart wild and his past the kind that’s spoken about in whispers. And somehow, his path was always intertwined with Kensington’s, every interaction crushing her, ruining her hope for any future better than her now. Sometimes, though, what everyone warns is trouble, is exactly what the heart needs. Owen Harper was consumed with darkness, and it held onto his soul for years. When Kensington looked at him, she saw a boy who’d gotten good at taking others down when they threatened his carefully balanced life. But the more she looked, the more she saw other things too—good things…things to admire.

Things…to love. Things that made her want to be reckless.
And those things…they were the scariest of all. 


Kensi has just been forced to move from her high school in her senior year.  A school that used to promote her talent as a piano player, but now in this much smaller school and music program she is forced to make a whole new set of friends and enemies.  It is during her first day of unpacking that Kensi has the unpleasant pleasure of meeting Owen Harper.  Her new neighbor with a bad reputation.  As much as Kensi knows that he is bad news she can’t help herself and finds herself drawn to him.  But, it isn’t until after a horrible family revelation that really pushes Owen and Kensi together.  Can both of them overcome the disappointments in their lives to grab what is in front of them or will they be forced to consider each other yet another disappointment in their lives?

From page one I was grabbed and forced to turn each emotionally charged page.  A YA novel like Wild Reckless brings us right back to high school and your first love.  Kensi and Owen really grow throughout the book.  You can almost see the characters mature in both their decisions and their emotions.  This is definitely seen in the character of Owen who is so much more than what you initially think.  I think that is one of the best parts of this book.  You almost anticipate him to let you down at any moment, but when all is said and done Owen is actually one of the best characters.  The back stories on both Kensi and Owen were very well done.  Though each had terrible things happen they both almost live parallel lives before, during and after their traumatic events.  The joining of these two through their coping was a great connecting point especially when on the surface it doesn’t appear that they would have anything in common.  Overall, the writing is terrific and the characters are memorable.  If you want to be touched and have a reminiscent journey back to high school you will definitely want to pick up Wild Reckless.

Review: Reckless Love by Kendall Ryan

Today I have a great post for you.  Reckless Love by Kendall Ryan is a hot MMA romance.  If you like the books by Katy Evans you will love Reckless Love by Kendall Ryan.  She has won a fan in me.  For my full review keep reading and keep a look out for the hot teasers in this post.


99 centsBook Blurb:

One reckless fighter.

One night of passion she can’t forget.

The battle for sex and love is fierce and unrelenting.

And love is about to knock him on his ass.

Reckless Love can be read as a standalone novel, but is a follow up to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Hard to Love.


Ian is set to be a professional MMA fighter.  All he has to do is keep focused and stay with his routine before a fight.  Unfortunately, Kenzi is a distraction he can’t escape.  Fortunately, she hates him thanks to one passionate night that went south pretty quickly.  Though Ian and Kenzie feel the pull of the attraction between them they fight it as hard as they can.  But, when it comes to passion and love you can only fight so long before it over takes you or you lose it forever.  Will Ian fight for rlteaser3 (1)his feelings for Kenzie or will he push her away forever?

I loved Ian and Kenzie.  Kenzie was spunky and full of fire.  She definitely didn’t let Ian’s muscles and sexiness melt her resolve…at least at first.  A girl can only fight that for so long.  Ian on the other hand is the quintecenssial tough guy turned teddy bear.  Well, he’s not completely a teddy bear.  Only when it comes to Kenzie.  I know that MMA stories are pretty popular now and it seems like a lot of authors are trying their hands at them, but I truly feel that Kendall Ryan managed to do a fantastic job.  She keeps the reader enthralled and excited.  Her build of sexual chemistry between Kenzie and Ian is fantastic.  It really is everything you would want in a good MMA romance.  If you are a fan of MMA romances such as those written by Katy Evans you will adore Kendall Ryan’s badass Ian and Kenzie.  Overall, an addictive read that had made me a brand new fan of Kendall Ryan.

Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 3/3/15



Purchase Stealing Rose




People say the youngest child has it easy, but
nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily,
I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get
little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and
I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.
Maybe my newfound courage has something to do
with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes.
The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some
deep, aching need inside. And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks
eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.

For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my
father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all—straight into the arms
of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for?
Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s
something else I can’t quite place—something dangerous. Maybe our “chance”
meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever
his motive, there’s no going back now.

And maybe I don’t want to.
