Release Blitz: Fire in the blood by Lily Freeman


Title : Fire In The Blood 


Author : Lily Freeman


Genre: Contemporary Erotic, BDSM novel.







Eight weeks ago, Polly Jayne Lester vanished.
With no explanation, no goodbyes; she walked away from one life, to start another.
Now based in London, she has a home: new friends, a new dog and – a Master. Luke Monroe is everything she never knew she wanted: dominant, sexy, passionate, and a sadist.
As their relationship develops, with her giving a little and him taking a lot, PJ is forced to explore the side of Luke she’s always found disconcerting, all under the watchful eyes of her neighbors Mika and Elliot, the other two men who have come to mean so much to her.

But at what price? 

When tensions mount between the three unquestionably alpha males, PJ’s caught in the middle. With Luke’s demands intensifying, Elliot’s possessive behaviour becoming more and more evident, and Mika, always her soft place to fall, claiming a little more of her heart each day, she’s torn. She’s already learnt the hard way that love can hurt, and she thought she knew how much, but nothing could have prepared her for this.



‘Fire in the Blood’ is the second book in ‘The Red Series.’ It is not a stand-alone novel, and I would highly recommend that if you intend to read it, you read ‘A Little Band of Red’ first.

Although both are part of a larger series, the first three novels have been written as a complete trilogy, concluding with ‘To Catch a Flame’, due out in December 2016.

With that in mind, not all of your questions will be answered or all hearts mended. But I promise, in the end they will.

Warning: ‘Fire in the Blood’ includes m/f, m/m and m/m/f scenes as well as a darker event containing violence and elements of non-consent.






Twenty minutes later PJ was a wreck, actually shaking as she walked back down the hall, this time to let Luke in. With sweaty palms she opened the door. Her breathtakingly gorgeous boyfriend was standing right there under the security light, looking like an avenging angel with his sandy brown hair slightly dishevelled and beautiful eyes sparkling. He smiled at her, but straight away PJ could see the tension in Luke’s face, and when she took him in from head to toe, his body too. 
“Hello, Darling. Did you miss me?” 
She nodded, words refusing to come, her mouth suddenly so dry. With one step, Luke had her wrapped in his arms. Dropping his head, he sucked in a breath, right by her ear before he kissed her. 
“Say it.” 
    “I missed you, Luke.” 
“Good.” 
    Somehow they made it back to her apartment, though all PJ could remember was his kiss. Her lips still tingled while she stood debating whether she should ask him what was wrong. With a finger he tilted her chin before moving lower, still only one little touch, down her neck, over her sternum. The buttons on her coat popped, one, two, three, before her coat fell, leaving her standing in nothing but her tiny excuse of a dress. 
    Taking his time, Luke prowled around her. Her pulse surged, her arms fidgeted at her sides, but it was the quietness which surrounded them that made her apprehensive. 
“I think we need to talk.” 
They did but PJ had absolutely no idea how to start the conversation which had been spinning around her head all day. “We do.” 
He took her hands, bringing her fingertips up to his lips then he kissed each one, all the while his eyes never left her face. 
“Are you scared of me, PJ? Not of what I’ve done, but of who I am?” 
All she could see as she glanced up at him were his soft blue eyes. He looked so sad, so lost and hurt, yet she wouldn’t lie to him. 
“I’m scared of … what you could do.” 
“I promised you, I’d never give you more than you can handle and I haven’t. I know I’ve taken you close, very close, but I’ve kept you safe. So why don’t you trust me?” 
He looked away, his broad shoulders heaving as he fought to remain calm and PJ looked away too. She felt like she was at a crossroads. If she turned left, she’d break Luke’s heart and end it all. If she turned right, and gave him what he wanted, she honestly didn’t know what the outcome would be. What she did know was there was only one way to find out.













I didn’t discover writing like most authors do. There was no childhood dream, no undeniable urge to put pen to paper. My story started off with an unexpected life changing event : a sizeable tax refund and a water-taxi ride caught from the wrong side of the Thames. I’ve always been an avid reader and a daydreamer, so when an idea for a novel was born from those three seemingly unrelated events, I ran with it.
That idea became an obsession and also a passion. My characters are big and bold, the men are dominant to a fault and the women are strong and sassy. I’m fascinated by the concept of fate. One decision causing another and another, all of them having consequences which ultimately draw my characters together only to tear them apart. There will always be a happy ending, because there’s no denying, I’m a romantic at heart – but a little pain woven amongst all that pleasure makes for a very explosive plot.
When I’m not writing or meticulously plotting my next novel, I am a wife and a mother. I have a healthy appetite for physically challenging sports and I love coffee. If all else fails you’ll find me reading a book which was how my journey began and will no doubt be how it will end.

Release Boost: Stadium of Lights by Tia Lewis 


Title : Stadium of Lights 
Author : Tia Lewis 
Genre : Steamy Sports Romance 






He
can’t help claiming her. But can he love her?


Max Anderson
enjoys all the perks of being a star NFL quarterback―including the
women. He has no intention of changing his carefree, hard-loving
lifestyle … until a twist of fate reunites him with the girl he
knew growing up.
Abby Morrison has worked hard to become a
physical therapist. She knows she needs to keep things professional
with Max — but the truth is, she’s always loved him. Back then,
she hid it. Now, it’s not so easy.
As they rekindle their
friendship, the heat between them is impossible to ignore. Soon it
flares out of control, and the fallout threatens to ruin everything.
Can they salvage a future together … or will the consequences wreck
their lives?







The time came around nine o’clock when we’d all stuffed ourselves. Abby stood up from the table, a little wobbly. I swooped in, waiting for her to decide it was time to go.

“Come on. I’ll take you home,” I murmured, taking her by the elbow. She looked up at me.

“No,” she murmured.

“What?”

“No. I don’t want you to take me home. Now will you move?”

“Wait. Slow down.”

“I want somebody else, Max. Now move.”

“Who?”

“Anybody. It doesn’t matter. Just not you.” She shook me off—thank God we’d both been whispering, or practically, because it didn’t seem like anybody else noticed. I followed her out the door to the restaurant’s entrance.

“You can’t drive in this condition,” I warned her.

“Then I’ll get a cab. You can leave now.” She glared at me, her cheeks flushed.

“What?”

“You ruined it. You always ruin it.”

“How the hell did I ruin anything?”

She looked back into the restaurant, frowning. “I was having fun. People were talking to me, seeing me, liking me. And you had to take over like you always do.”

My car pulled up in front of us, and I took the keys from the valet. “Come on. I’ll drive you home, and we can talk about it on the way.” I practically threw her into the car before she could curse me out, then got in myself. Once I locked the doors from my side, she couldn’t open them.

“What the fuck Max!” She slapped the dashboard, then sank into her seat with a groan. “I was having fun. I was about to get laid, damn it!”

I bit my tongue until I calmed down. “By whom?”

“I don’t know! What did it matter? I was gonna get some for me, for once. And you won’t let me. I have to always be there for you, but you can never be there for me. You couldn’t just let me enjoy myself. No, you probably wanted to tell me all about your stupid fucking cheerleader girlfriend and ask me what you should do about her!” There was so much venom in her voice. She hated me.

I pulled over to the shoulder of the road. “What are you doing?” she asked. I unbuckled my belt without saying a word, then turned to her.

“You wanna know why I wanted to take you home?” I reached out, grabbing her by the shoulders. I pulled her to me before she could push me away and crushed my mouth against hers.

She only fought me for a split second before giving in. She sighed, relaxing, and I wrapped my arms around her. Her lips were so sweet, soft and yielding. When I slid my tongue between them, they opened to give me better access. I tasted the inside of her mouth, taking my time. This girl who had been my friend for so long, and she was right—I’d used her in a way. This girl who was always there for me without asking anything in return. This sexy, incredible girl.

The kiss deepened, with her tongue dancing alongside mine. She wrapped her arms around my neck, almost growling. Sounding hungry, desperate. I ran one of my hands over her body, listening to the way the breath caught in her throat. She whined a little, pressing against me, and when I made contact with her tits she moaned into my mouth.

By the time the kiss ended, we were both breathless. Her eyes were wide, stunned.

“That’s why,” I whispered, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.

WTMO Author Bio Banner Final.jpg
samantha.jpg
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

Review: Defying Dorian by Sloan Storm

31568164

Blurb:

HATING HIM WAS EASY… UNTIL LOVING HIM MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE.

TEMPEST

B*stard. Hunk. Billionaire. My life was just fine before he swept me up – hauling me away in those thick, strong, tattooed arms and dragging me off to God knows where.

Now, it’s do what he says, when he says, or else.

I’d run as far my legs would carry me, if only I could. Under the guise of protecting me, he’s locked me away at his opulent estate complete with everything a girl could want – except my freedom. I mean, sure, it’s almost impossible to resist his bad boy attitude, insane good looks and rock hard… muscles. Even so, I’m determined not to fall under his spell.

Unfortunately, my melting panties seem to have ideas of their own.

He’s the most dangerous man I’ve ever met. How could I ever trust someone like him to protect me from anyone – especially himself?

DORIAN

It was supposed to be simple. Just do a favor for a friend – hell, a brother.

Everything went to plan. Well, almost. Once I got my arms around Tempest, nothing would ever be simple again.

Now she’s in danger and there’s no one who can, who could, protect her like me. She talked tough but had a lot to learn about life’s harder edges. The problem is that unless you know what you’re doing, those edges can cut and sometimes, much worse.

Normally, women like her don’t exist in my reality – except for one reason. But keeping her with me has nothing to do with getting her in bed. Combing my hair is harder than finding a warm body to fill that role.

Or at least, that’s how it started…

Now unless I can hear her scream my name for the rest of my life, I’ll never be satisfied.

I won’t settle for anything less.

“Defying Dorian” is a standalone billionaire romance complete with twists, turns and scorching hot love. There are no cliffhangers and an ending guaranteed to leave you happy, ever after

Review:

Copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The book had me in a state of a shock from the beginning. I really enjoyed this type of rich man and a woman story. It was different than the usual ones where they meet and she works for him as his pretending girlfriend or she is his secretary.

The beginning of the story is quite frustrating to be honest. With him being all secretive and she full of hatred. But once the action really sets it gets really interesting and worth reading.

4 stars from me.

Cole by Tijan
Release Date: February 13th, 2017

COLEEBOOKCOVER.jpg

 

Synopsis:

I shouldn’t have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Cole Mauricio.

ARC review: El Diablo (The Devil #1) by M Robinson

6e7a6-eldiablo_titlesmokeblack-2

Review:

OMG. Amazing book! I love the Ol’ bhttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30201299-el-diablooys series and I thought complicate me was the best. But this one is so different than the others that it makes it the best.

The twists Ms Robinson introduced here had my jaw hitting the floor and thinking: This is bloody brilliant!

I really wanted to hate the devil but instead I was swooning over him harder and harder. Alejandro is devilishly bad, smart, intelligent and oh so wrong to love. But every devil has a good side, right?

After Crave me you just wanted to know who he is, what his story is. What makes him The Devil.

And the answers? Are so Amezaballs that everyone will be satisfied.

5 freaking stars.
