Title: Allure (Brooklet Dreams)
Author: CA Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
The next generation of the Southern Boys returns in a new spin-off series, Brooklet Dreams…

 


 

She was supposed to be my forever…


I’ll never forget the first time I saw her. She wore overalls two sizes too big and a pair of gloves that were also too large for her little hands. But that didn’t faze her one bit, and we clicked instantly.
By the age of twelve, we had become best friends, and by the time we turned sixteen, we were more. I had eyes for only one girl. My girl.
But then life changed, and different paths led to broken promises. When she left town, I was forced to let go of our dreams.
I spent my days existing. Baseball, classes, and working at the family farm became my life. I didn’t care about anything else. Until I met Allison Jo.
AJ was the quiet girl I never expected. She brought me to my knees with that beautiful smile. She made me laugh and slowly brought the old me back to life. I found myself wanting more with her.
I became her world, and she was my everything.

 

But when my past returns, my world is turned upside down. 

 

 

I’m not sure I was prepared for what was about to happen.

blog_review

Allure by C.A. Harms stole my heart almost instantly. I started the book thinking it was going to go one way and ended up so happy with the direction it took. I absolutely love the characters, Rhett and AJ (Allison Jo) and their surrounding friends and family. Their story is beautiful although there are a few pitfalls along the way, but the HEA will have you smiling and dabbing your eyes simultaneously. This will be a definite reread for me when I need to smile or when I just need a good romantic pickmeup. There’s nothing I didn’t like about the story and the cover, well, that’s just a work of art. Congratulations, C.A. Harms, on a fantastic book. I can’t wait for Mike and Raven’s story. I give Allure 5+ stars and highly recommend it to everyone!

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

Outcasts (Badlands #3) by Natalie Bennett

Title: Outcasts
Series: Badlands #3
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark Erotic Thriller
Release Date: May 12, 2018

 

*Grimm*

Pariah.
Dark Messiah.
Harbinger of death.
My reputation has always preceded me.
I’m a brother to the queen of the Badlands.
I’m one of the few confidants to her fiancé–the devil himself.
And those whispered rumors that I’m a silent killer, a true harvester of souls? 
They’re true.
People never see me coming. I don’t discriminate, I show no mercy, and I feel no remorse. 
My only loyalty is to my family and when someone important to them goes missing, I vow to do whatever is necessary to track her down and bring her back.
But the person I find is not the same woman who was stolen away.
Something’s different about her.
Something I find myself drawn to as we fight our way back to hell.


*Arlen*

Stubborn.
Reckless.
Original family disappointment.
My reputation has never preceded me.
I’m supposed to be this spoiled, rich b*tch who does everything her daddy tells her.
I was forbidden to even think about the Badlands.
But money means nothin to me and my paradise was a pretty cage I refused to be trapped in.
I fought my way out, I found a new family, and even though sh*t got tough sometimes it all worked out in the end.
And then I got kidnapped.
I thought it was over for me. 
I almost broke. 
I should have known he would never let that happen.
And I should have realized something inside me had shifted.
Maybe then I’d have seen the signs that I was falling for an irredeemable man.
A man who taught me that there was power in taking away a life. 
A man who showed me just how beautiful hell truly was.
It’s only fair I warn you that this is not a story about a rescued damsel in distress.
This is a story about what happens when a man who collects souls finally meets his match.

*Outcasts is the 3rd book in the Badlands series. This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend starting Savages & Deviants first.*

Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.

When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.

You can find Natalie on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Rating: 4 stars

Amazon review link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R6GLZNB6QURSW/

SYNOPSIS:

Emma Hibbert will never again trust a good-looking man. They offer nothing but heartbreak and humiliation. But her conscience won’t let her abandon a sinfully handsome stranger needing help—even if he ignites an unwelcome passion in her. She soon realizes she should have left him in the mud where she found him, for he has the power to ruin everything…

Viscount Tidworth is anything but grateful for being rescued after a tumble from his horse. His pretty savior may be well-meaning, but forcing him to delay his journey completely wrecks his engagement plans. And Tidworth cannot let that stand. But when he discovers Emma’s true identity, he must choose between his desire for revenge…and his baffling attraction to her.

ABOUT ELIZABETH KEYSIAN

Elizabeth Keysian felt destined to write historical romance due to her Cornish descent, and an ancestral connection to the Norse god Odin. Being an only child gave her plenty of time to read, create imaginary worlds, produce her own comics, and write sketches and a deplorably bad musical for an amateur dramatics group.

Three decades spent working in museums and archaeology fired Elizabeth’s urge to write, as did living on a Knights Templar estate, with a garage full of skeletons, a resident ghost and a moat teeming with newts.

Elizabeth lives near Bath in England with her partner and cats.

Fixed Infatuation by Stacy Borel

Title: Fixed Infatuation
Author: Stacy Borel
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 26, 2018


 



Natalie Kirkland – “loved it”

Melodyslove4books – “5 stars!”

North & South Book Blog – “I loved this story and can safely say Stacy is back to her best! Looking forward to more in the future!”



Molly Hartford was a writer with big dreams, and even bigger aspirations. She had no idea how far out of her depth she was about to be, when she bought a dilapidated house in the Washington Peninsula. It was in desperate need of some help, but she was fully convinced that she could do majority of the work herself. A few self-help videos, and maybe a class at a hardware store — she’d have this in the bag.

Easy peasy. 

Before she even signed the papers, she noticed her sexy neighbor, Blake Whitmore. He was a general contractor with his own business and an eye for detail. Painting walls, repairing cabinets and caulking bathtubs were among his many specialties. Blake was dead set on showing her she had no business remodeling a home. 

Playful flirting, sexual innuendos, and physical attraction are all part of the job… right?

Except they both may find out that things aren’t all fun and games when walls come down, and layers are scraped away. Relationships are built on solid ground, but not when foundations are full of cracks and there’s so much more hiding underneath.

Something So Unscripted by Natasha Madison

Title: Something So Unscripted
Author: Natasha Madison
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: April 2, 2018
Cover Design: Melissa Gill at MGBookCovers
Zack

Finding my teammate in bed with my wife made the decision I had been fighting with for years easier.

It’s time to move on. 

A fresh start and a new NHL team in a big city. Most importantly, it’s my son Jack’s best shot. 

It would be both of our best shots. 


Denise

After a bad childhood, I made sure I would succeed, so I lived for my job. 

The problem is I die a little with each patient I lose. It’s part of my career at Hudson Children’s Oncology Hospital, but it doesn’t make the sting of loss any easier. 

Seeking anything other than a life saved isn’t on my agenda until a NHL player walks into my hospital with his son. 

We’re officially off script the moment we meet. 

If this love is anything, it’s unscripted.

“Zack.” I hear her voice and just look at my wife. The woman who said she would love me in good times and in bad yet is currently holding a sheet to cover her naked body. The four-carat engagement with matching eternity wedding ring glistens in the light. “It’s just …” she starts to say, and I look over at the man in bed next to her. In our bed. 

“It’s over.” I say the two words I swore I wouldn’t say no matter how hard it got. No matter how much I saw her push me away, no matter that I always suspected she was cheating on me. Then I look over at the man who I called a brother, the man who stood by my side on and off the ice. “You’re scum.”

“It just happened,” Colton says, getting out of the bed. At least he’s wearing boxers. His knee is still wrapped from the operation he had last month, which is why he wasn’t on the road with us, which is how I surprised them.

We were on the road for the whole week and due back tomorrow, but I hightailed it out of there to get home to my family and my son. “It just so happened you walked into my house and slept with my wife?” I ask him, and I have to wonder why I’m not more pissed, why I’m not more angry with them. “You come here and sleep with my wife with my son under the same roof.”

“Zack,” my wife says, and I look over at her again. Tears are rolling down her cheeks, her perfectly made up face now streaked with the black mascara she always wears. “Please let’s …”

I shake my head, putting my hands in my pockets. “Let’s what? Let’s talk about this?” I throw my head back and laugh. “Let’s talk about the fact that our son is in his room dying. Let’s talk about the fact that instead of helping him, you’re just helping yourself. Let’s talk about the fucking fact that instead of being there by his side with me, you chose to escape the fucking reality that our son won’t make it to six years old.”

“No.” She shakes her head, and I know that I’ve about had it.

“I’ll give you an hour,” I tell them both. “One hour and I want you packed and at the door when I come back.”

“But—” she says.

“But nothing, Chantal. You did what you had to do for you, and now I’m doing what I need to do for our son.”

I turn and walk out of our bedroom, then down the winding staircase that leads to the big brass front doors. Once outside in the warm Arizona air, I take my phone out of my pocket and call the only person I know who has my back no matter what. My agent and best friend, Jamie.

He answers after one ring, and it doesn’t surprise me he sleeps with his phone in his hand. “What’s up?” he says, his voice sleepy since it’s four a.m. in New York.

“I want out of Arizona, make the trade. Call the powers that be; I want out,” I tell him, getting into my Range Rover.

“You can’t just demand that,” he says, and I hear sheets rustle.

“Just walked in on Colton fucking my wife, so you can bet your ass I can. Make it happen. Call New York because it’s the only place I’ll go. I don’t care if I take a pay cut.”

“That fucking scumbag,” he says. “I’ll call them now.”

“Jamie, there is a top-notch doctor who specializes in cancer in New York. Max Horton’s sister,” I tell him quietly and slowly drive out of my gate.

“I’ll make it happen,” he says softly. “I’ll let you know what they say.”

“Jamie, I’m leaving here in a week regardless of what they say,” I tell him and disconnect the call. 

“One week,” I say to myself. “One fucking week.”

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Death Dealers MC Series by Alana Sapphire

Title: Forbidden ~ Tempted ~ Claimed ~ Deception
Series: Death Dealers MC Series
Author: Alana Sapphire
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: Available Now
Cover Design: Clarise Tan @ CT Cover Creations


***Raven***

 

I should stay away from Gage “Reaper” Hunter. The Death Dealers MC president is everything I don’t want. That’s what I have to tell myself when he’s close. The more I try to distance myself from him, the stronger my attraction grows. He wants to protect me, but who’s going to protect me from him?

 

Will I be able to resist The Reaper when he comes calling?

 

***Gage***

 

I want Raven Alvarez in my bed. She’s smart, sexy, and sassy, infuriating and arousing me in equal measure. However, I can’t have her yet. The more time I spend with her, the more I want her… the more I want… more. I’m all wrong for her, but nothing has ever felt so right.

 

Forbidden fruit is the sweetest, and I’m dying for a taste.

 








***Raven***

Attraction
Temptation
Danger

Gage Hunter is a temptation no woman should have to fight. He’s sexy as sin and more appealing than the apple in The Garden. I’ve tried resisting him, but ended up running right back into his arms every time. He says he’ll wait for me, but with danger lurking around every corner, I may not make it to my birthday. Do I trust him to protect me or do I play it safe, knowing losing him would be another kind of death?

***Gage***
I’m not a good man.
My life is complicated, and even though being with me puts Raven in constant danger, I can’t stay away from her. I will protect her at all costs. She will be mine.
This fight with temptation is one I don’t mind losing.









***Raven***

I’m damaged goods. Broken beyond repair. He’ll never claim me now. Why would he still want me? Why would anyone? I’m not the girl he met, and I’ll never be her again. He’s all I have. What will I do when he leaves me just like everybody else has?

***Gage***
“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
I’ll need more than that. I promised to protect her and I failed. I wouldn’t blame her if she ran fast and far from me, but I won’t let that happen.
Raven is mine.
I won’t lose her.
I can’t.
Vengeance is mine. They’ll pay for what they did to her.








***Gage***

I’m happy.
For the first time in a long time, I’m truly happy. My old lady is everything I’ve ever wanted. There’s only one thing I need to make my life complete, and I know it will happen soon. After all we’ve been through, Raven and I deserve this.
Now that she’s truly mine, I’m never letting her go.


***Raven***
I have a secret.
Hiding it from Gage is getting increasingly difficult. Lying to him is killing me, but he’d be devastated if he finds out.
He’d leave me.
Will my deception cost me my relationship?

Tattered (A Tattered Heart Duet #2) by Brooke O’Brien

Title: Tattered
Series: A Tattered Heart Duet #2
Author: Brooke O’Brien
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 30, 2018

 

Maverick Night is bad news. He made me want things I knew I shouldn’t but did.
Now my brother’s best friend is back, but we are both different people. Time changed us.
I crave the way my heart beat when he used to look at me, how it felt to be in his arms. Nothing good will come from opening myself up to him.
I just hope my tattered heart can take it if he walks away again.
TORN and TATTERED are companion novellas to the Heart’s Compass series. You do NOT need to read the Heart’s Compass books in order to enjoy the Tattered Heart duet, however, it is highly recommended that you read Torn first.

 

 

 

“With the ending to the last book, Brooke tore my heart out. With this one, she put it back together. Her words flowed together seamlessly in a perfect ending (or beginning) for Ryan and Maverick.” – Kacie, Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty

“I loved this second chance romance and how both Ryan and Maverick have grown! Amazing duet and I can’t wait for more from this group of friends!” – Patricia, Words We Love By Blog

“What I really loved about this duet is that love does endure. Love does fight. And the heart, no matter how torn and tattered it was left, will be mended by the one that it calls for.” – Suzanne, Goodreads Reviewer

 


Brooke O’Brien is the author of the Heart’s Compass series. She recently released the second book of the Heart’s Compass series, Lost Before You.

Growing up Brooke always had a love of writing; she started out writing poetry when she was young and began journaling her thoughts as she grew older. Diving headfirst into a good book has always been therapeutic for her. Now her two passions have collided.

She believes you can cure any bad day with chocolate. Brooke enjoys going on long drives with no destination in mind. She’s found that’s when her characters talk to her the most! If she’s not reading or writing, you’ll probably find her spending time with her family, watching NBA basketball, going to the movies, or collecting signed paperbacks.
