Us (The L & J Series) ~ Emily Eck

Us (L & J #3)
by Emily Eck

Synopsis

Told from dual points of view, Elle and J must figure out how to bring down an MC, steer clear of flying bullets in Missouri and south of the border, all the while making sure Fernie is out of the line of fire. Elle’s love for J is tested, as is her belief that she will ever find “normal” with the man she loves.

J is determined to make things right so he can give Elle the “normal” life she deserves. He just has to stay alive to make it happen. With his own personal sun by his side, he knows nothing is impossible. That is, until the bullets are redirected from his head to Elle’s.

Elle: I held my hand up, showing him the ring he’d put on me. “This is us,” I told him. It was more than a ring. Well, to me it was more. “I promise to love you ‘til the day I die.”
J:”Us, baby. This is us. I’ll love you ’til the sun ceases to shine.”

About the Author

Emily is a Midwestern Gal hailing from the United States, but could be anywhere as you read this. Currently residing in Mexico, adventure feeds her soul, and offers great writing material. She loves kids and working with kids, but can only handle caring for four-legged furry friends. A crazy dog and laid back cat have trained her to be their partner in life. After coming from a snowy climate, Emily and the animals are loving the sun Mexico has to offer each and every day. Vices include Swedish Fish, ignoring chores in favor of reading, and caring too much for people in her life. She chose to write this bio in third person as she is an Aries, and found writing in first person ended up with her writing an excessively long life story. Aries like to talk about themselves. It is something Emily is working on being more mindful of. You can contact her on any of the social media platforms below and she will respond, as her mom gave her the gift of gab.

#Review ~ Under a Dom’s Care ~ Sam Crescent

Under a Dom’s Care (Extreme 2)

Jake messed up and broke the rules at club, Extreme. He’s paid the price but the punishment still stands, and he cannot touch a sub within the club. One night out with his friend and he meets the raven haired beauty of his dreams.

Isabella is a librarian and a virgin. She’s tired of her friends nagging her and so, she sets out a plan. The first man to hold her interest is the man she’s going to lose her virginity to.

Big mistake!

No matter how much chemistry was between them, losing her cherry against a brick wall was not the stuff of fairytales. There was no way she’d be giving herself to a man any time soon.

However, Jake refuses to step down. He’s got a reputation to uphold and he refuses to let her go until he shows her what it really means to be under a Dom’s care.

Diana’s Review:

5 Hearts and 4 Flames

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.   I can honestly say that I felt happy throughout this entire reading experience.

Jake is very likeable and believably wants to do the right thing.   He is very Dominant and openly honest all throughout.  In fact all of the characters in this book are refreshingly honest with themselves and each other.  Even though we are reading a book with it’s setting surrounding the BDSM club Extreme, you cannot feel offended by this book.  It is tastefully sensual and there is a wonderful HEA ending.

Bella is a somewhat mousy librarian at first.  A virgin at 23, of course, but it fits this woman better than most that I have read.  Bella doesn’t need men in her life.  Extremely enlightened in a modern world.   The fun lies in what Bella wants and what her very Dominant male, Jake, wants.  At first they do not seem to be in sync.  Bella is not naïve or unfamiliar with BDSM world, but has no real time experience.  Jake just simply put is gob smacked by Bella.

Totally recommend this read to most over 18.   5 stars on Amazon, and Goodreads and 5 hearts with 4 flames on SSLY but only because the sex could have been more scorching and edgy but that is not what this story needed.

#Review ~ Taming His Tutor ~ Natalie Anderson

Taming His TutorTaming His Tutor

by Natalie Anderson

Computer guru Abbi Hayes needs to kick her sex life into overdrive—and she’s designing the perfect App to make it happen. Thanks to all of the self-help bedroom tips she’s accumulating, she’ll be able to go from boring and passive to own-him-now vixen with a couple of swipes of a touch screen. And when former NBA basketball star Joe Fuller offers to help her test out her ‘product,’ how can she say no?

Joe can’t quite believe this temptress-in-training is his formerly shy, geeky ex-math tutor. If Abbi wants to discover her inner vamp, he’ll happily be her how-to guide. But it only takes few face-to-face lessons to realize that underneath the talk, there’s a truly passionate woman begging to be claimed by someone strong. Someone like him.

Maybe it’s time to teach his former teen fantasy a few tricks of his own…

Beverly’s Review:

4 hearts 4 flame

Taming His Tutor is a fast paced amusing love story about a high school crush that never went away. They didn’t realize it until they ran into each other again though.

Abbi knew she didn’t have what it took in high school to get Joe’s interest. Joe wanted Abbi but she never seemed interested. She was too shy and he took the easy route and the easy girls, leaving Abbi behind. Both grown and successful, Joe saves Abbi from being run over by a car. Not that she even noticed! Abbi was too interested in learning to become a vixen. It worked, until she got too tongue tied to continue. Joe was once again fascinated with the contradictions that Abbi presented.

It was hilarious watching Abbi unknowingly become the woman she wanted to be and then remember she wasn’t that person. Joe did everything he could to get Abbi to respond to him. He couldn’t help it. He had to touch her. Joe was a great guy, any woman would want him in their lives. Abbi always had. The character interactions were wonderful and the story line well written and engaging.

Taming His Tutor brought Abbi and Joe back together. A wonderful, humorous and sensual read, Taming His Tutor was definitely worth the time to read. Before I knew it, it was over!

Immortal Tempest ~ J.N. Sheats

Title: Immortal Tempest
Author: J.N. Sheats
Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance
Publication Date: August 4, 2014

 

“I would no longer be a mortal servant, a pet kept for sick entertainment. I had been chosen for initiation, to become one of the immortals…A vampire.

My transition continued on far longer than any other, filling my body with a pain that was beyond the natural senses. After four days of writhing in the burning change I blacked out, and what woke in my place was not a vampire. It was in a word…Chaos.”

No longer an average mortal and far from a vampire, Serenity is an unnatural force that rivals anything found in the planes of the Underworld. An advantage that her master uses in his quest to conquer the mortal world, while luring her into his bed with seductive promises. A flawless venture until they reach the city of Tentusa.

Now three centuries of loyalty between master and servant are shaken by a deep connection to land they wish to conquer. Serenity’s disobedience grows stronger with each passing hour, fueling her master’s impatient need to tame the wild creature that lives within her.

Lightening steals the coming darkness, thunder echoes against the rolling hills as the war inside Serenity starts to stir. Which is stronger… the person, the desire, or the creature?

A creative mind trapped in a world of reality Jackie Sheats expresses herself in anyway that she can. From illustrating and writing to dancing like a mental patient while preparing dinner. Living in Maryland with her logic driven husband, their six cats, the dog, and a tank full of fish, Jackie spends her free time doing the backlog of housework and studying for her Masters in Illustration. A movie junkie, video game addict, and secret ninja in training she lives life under the idea that “if you don’t know how to do something, go learn it!”

From Me to You Friday ~ Beverly

Awesome News

I’ve been trumpeting my news all over!

I’ve had a wonderful couple of weeks in my writing world. I got an acceptance letter for my short erotic western from Secret Cravings Publishing. It’s heading for their Weekend Getaway Line!

So, in October, look for

Triple D Dude Ranch.

I had a ball writing it. I will be finishing the second round of edits this weekend. My first attempt at a western. It has a horse! That counts, right?

LOL

AND

on Thursday I spoke with the owner of Assent Publishing and came home to a contract for

Stealing Hope.

My dragon shifter novel. And I mean novel! My first full length offering and it is due out in 2015.

In ebook and print!

Awesome Sauce!

This weekend, this long 3 day weekend, I plan on editing and writing. I’m trying to finish A Dragon’s Treasure. I already told my editor I’m working on it and he was happy to hear it. So I need to finish it before I have my upcoming classes. I’m taking a photo shop class and I signed up for another one with RWA (Romance Writers of America). Time Management. So needed!

I’m itching to get back to Her Savior in Camouflage. I think I lost my way and had to take a step back.  I have to re read it and fix it so I can go forward. Jandro and Annabel need to hit a better level of intimacy to properly make this story go forward. Like I said, I need to fix it to continue!

Hopefully you’ll like the my newest tales when they come out!

A Dragon’s Treasure is the next story after Dragons’ Mate.

Dragons Mate_finalcover

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

Hopefully I’ve gotten better and addressed the items that some readers didn’t care for in Dragons’ Mate. You will find more out about Annie, Tine and Brand while meeting the woman that Drake has been searching the world for.

His Treasure.

Her Savior in Camouflage is the story of Alejandro Santiago ‘Saint’s’  cousin in A Saint’s Salvation.

Another man in the Stubborn Santiago line!

Heroes who serve *sigh* I love a man in uniform!

While you wait for me to finish Her Savior in Camouflage do catch A Saint’s Salvation. Meet Jandro and let me know what you think of him!

ASaintsSalvation_MED

Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he knows was meant to be his.

Petty Officer Angelina Jones’ life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. Knowing Saint received a ‘Dear John’ letter, Angelina has no intention of being his rebound romance. She needs to be loved for herself. She needs to forget about the one man she knows was meant to be hers.

They each try to find someone to help them forget.

But what does fate have planned for them?

#Review ~ Viking Fire ~ Andrea R. Cooper

roses2

Viking Fire

by Andrea R. Cooper

856 CE, Ireland is a land of myth, magic, and blood. Viking raiders have fought the Irish for over half a century. Rival Irish clans promise only betrayal and carnage.

Kaireen, daughter of Laird Liannon, is suddenly forced into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, a Viking. She refuses to submit. With no mention of love, only land and the protection of her clan, she endeavors to get her betrothed banished from her country. Will love find its way around her stubborn heart?

Bram, the Viking, finds himself without future or inheritance as a younger son in his family. A marriage to the Laird’s daughter would grant him land if he swears fidelity and if his men will fight along with the Liannons against any foe—Irish or Viking. However, the Laird’s feisty daughter only holds animosity for him and his kind. Is marriage worth the battle scars of such a relentless opponent?

With the blame for a rival laird’s death treacherously set against the Liannons, Kaireen and Bram must find a way to lay aside their differences as an unforeseen darkness sends death snapping at their heels.

Beverly’s Review:

4 Hearts 2 Flame

An entertaining novel, fast paced and enjoyable. I enjoyed Kaireen’s antics in trying to get rid of her betrothed. Her red headed temper and straight forward actions left no doubt as to what her mind wanted. Too bad her body betrayed her every time she got wrapped up in Bram’s arms.

Bram was a man of the times, a warrior who went after what he wanted and when he saw Kaireen, he knew he wanted her. He admired her beauty and even more her spirit, picturing the children they would have and the fun they would have making them.

Events conspired to bring danger into their lives and brought home to Keireen how dear Bram had become. NOT that she would give in gracefully!

The only issue I had was that for some reason I thought Bram was from Ireland and Keireen somewhere else! From the names of the neighbors, I assumed Scotland! It could be that Bram was referred to by a clan name rather than Viking most of the time, though that was mentioned. It was probably just me!  Definitely worth the read, especially if you like medieval tales, treachery and love. Viking Fire had some cool facts mixed in about that time also that made it that much more fun!
