Cover Reveal - SWEET LIFE by Nina Lane

 


    

SWEET LIFE
SUGAR RUSH #5
By Nina Lane
Standalone
Release Day – Dec 12, 2017



He knows if she's been bad or good. 

Amidst the sugarplums and mistletoe, fashion stylist Julia Bennett is every inch a scrooge. Known for her ice-queen ways, she's having a meltdown over a botched business deal and an upcoming milestone birthday. Add the pressure of forced holiday cheer, and she's ready to dive into the spiked eggnog and not come out until summer. 

Warren Stone, president and owner of the Sugar Rush Candy Company, is determined to make Julia slow down and enjoy the holidays. As her friend and confidante for fourteen years, he knows her better than anyone. But when decking the halls leads them to an explosive, sexy night, everything suddenly changes.

Just when Julia thinks Warren is all she wants for Christmas, an old flame comes to town and reminds her of the carefree girl she used to be. As the new year approaches, Julia is forced to decide if she wants to relive the past or embrace the future.

Blog Tour w/ Review - MAVERICK by Karina Halle

SBPRBanner-Maverick-BT.jpg

Maverick by Karina Halle 
Release Date: October 17th 
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Maverick-print-for-web.jpg

Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!


Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man - Canada's never felt so hot!

Forget playing it safe.

John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.

When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.

That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.

With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.

But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze. 


Review
5 Stars

I couldn’t wait to read Maverick’s story. He was supposed to be this sexy mountain man that the lady’s couldn’t resist. Well there is no doubt that Karina Halle kicked it up a notch in this book. I wanted to read a book not do exercise. I mean if you consider vagina clenching exercise, then yeah! Because I was doing this a lot!!!! Lol…. HOLY FUCKING HOTTNESS!!!

From the very beginning I was pulled into the story. We start off on Riley and how she ends up in North Ridge and man, what an opening to a story. I was totally devouring the pages. I instantly loved Riley’s character. She was so bold and confident sexually yet still vulnerable from the tragic events she’s endured. She was the perfect match for Maverick. And Maverick….oh Mav! Be still my clenching thighs. Mav was everything you just want to devour in a man. Sexy, tattoos, demanding and take charge and he still had that soft side that easily came out with Riley. The flirtation and sexual banter between these two was fun and entertaining. The chemistry was off the charts.

Karina Halle did an amazing job on the delivery of this story. These risk takers had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I was absolutely consumed by this book.  I completely fell in love with these characters and these stories. Fox and Del’s story is next and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Halle has in store for their journey. Loving this series and highly recommend it.

Release Blitz w/ Excerpt - RESISTING HUNTER by Rachael Orman



Title: Resisting Hunter (Love and Lust Duet, Part 1)
Author: Rachael Orman
Genre: Billionaire Erotic Romance
Publication Date: October 19, 2017




Who knew life could change so fast? I certainly didn’t.

At 25 years old, I discover that I have a twin sister who I never knew about. We’ve been raised in completely opposite worlds, but that doesn’t stop us from bonding once we learn of each other’s existence.

However, I’m not quite sure how to handle my sister's adopted brother, Hunter. He is the sexiest man I have ever seen and he is determined to get me into his bed.

If I give in, I will be putting the budding relationship with my sister at risk. 

I refuse to give in.

WARNING: Sexually explicit scenes. Intended for audiences 18+ years. 










My steps faltered when my eyes landed on the man standing in front of her. He was speaking in a tone so low I couldn’t hear what he was saying. He hadn’t yet spotted me so I let my eyes feast on him an extra second longer. Bulging muscles stretched the sleeves of the t-shirt he was wearing. Not too much, but enough to show he worked out. Broad chest. Long legs encased in jeans that showed off his thick thighs. I finally forced my eyes back to his face only to discover he was now looking directly at me.
His forehead creased, his eyebrows drawing together. Clearly, he wasn’t happy to see me. The mouthwatering arms I had just been admiring crossed over his chest as he followed each step I took that brought me closer to him. His dark hair was pushed back from his face on top and short on the sides. Thick eyebrows and dark lashes emphasized his magnificent blue eyes. Even with his lips pursed in a tight line, he was jaw-droppingly handsome.
An aura emanated from him. One that let everyone know he was powerful, demanding, controlling. He wasn’t the type of man to back down from a challenge and he always got what he wanted, no matter the cost.
He was intimidating and intense even without speaking a single word — and I wanted him. What would it be like to have a man like that? Would he hold a woman down and fuck her hard and fast? I was willing to bet he would. Thoughts of all the wicked things we could do together had my panties growing damp and my nipples pushing out, begging for attention.


















I am a happily married mother of two beautiful (and trying) little girls. We have two German Shepherd pups (2 yr old and 7 month old) that are constantly getting into trouble and keeping us on our toes.

I am currently attending ASU for my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design, but I am an avid reader when I’m not writing a book of my own. Just like I write, I prefer hot, naughty and all out dirty books, but I also enjoy Urban Fantasy, dystopian and science fiction as well (as long as there is a little romance somewhere in them). I also love to volunteer anywhere I can to help those who are in need.







Audio Book Blog Tour: FUCKING ARTISTS, Ch 22 of Consequences by M. Jane Colette

FUCKING ARTISTS, Ch 22 of Consequences 
by M. Jane Colette 

#audiobook #excerpt #listentothis #ConAudioTour




Welcome to Stop 22 & Chapter 22 of the Consequences AudioBook BlogTour 

FUCKING ARTISTS from CONSEQUENCES (of defensive adultery) an EROTIC tragedy with a HAPPY ending by M. Jane Colette performed by Elisa Kae


18+ ADVISORY: Consequences is intended for an adult (18+) audience. It deals with mature subject matter, and contains explicit language and sexual content. Listener and reader discretion is advised.

The tour is bringing romance readers and listeners the opportunity to listen to all 48 full, unabridged chapters of Consequences well in advance of the audiobook's Christmas release.

Plus, there are fabulous prizes at every stop--including a raffle for $50 Amazon Gift Card--and 48 chances throughout the tour to enter to win a COMPLETE set of M. Jane Colette's paperbacks--so read through to the end so you don't miss out!


***


WHAT'S THIS BOOK ABOUT?


An affair. HEARTBREAK. Consequences. ABSOLUTION, redemption, and LOVE… in the most unexpected places–a steamy second chance romance unlike any you’ve ever experienced… featuring an ALPHA lover-confessor you haven’t DARED dream about.

Elizabeth did not plan to break up his marriage when she had an affair with her law school professor. But she did. Fifteen years later, she’s still coming to terms with the consequences of her youthful infatuation: a stepdaughter who hates her, an ex-wife who will never forgive the betrayal, a sister-in-law who’s determined to make Elizabeth her confidante. Compelled to reveal the "tragedy of her life" to a nameless lover, Elizabeth finds herself forced to reconsider her definition of love, commitment, and responsibility—a process that finally releases her from the shackles of her past mistakes and shows her the way to her own happily-ever-after.

A NOTE ABOUT STRUCTURE: The story unfolds over the course of one night, as the narrator Elizabeth relates the “tragedy of her life” to her current lover as they, to quote a reviewer “do lover things.” The story Elizabeth tells spans 15 years. The scenes between Elizabeth and her lover are pure dialogue, and interrupt the “story proper.” There is no “he said/I said” in the dialogue between Elizabeth and her lover… a challenge the narrator solved masterfully, but which may give the first-time listener pause. To increase your enjoyment of the story, an opportunity to read, as well as listen to, the chapter, is provided.

Release Blitz + Review + Giveaway - BANG by Kendall Grey





BANG (Book 5 in the Hard Rock Harlots Series) is now LIVE for only $2.99!!



Book 5 in the Hard Rock Harlots Series

Some people think touring with a bunch of hardcore rockers would be a dream come true.

It isn't.

Most days, life on the bus is more like a nightmare made flesh. Stressful, tense, and claustrophobic as crap.

Keeping the band members from suffocating each other with pillows has been a full-time job since we first hit the road. One day I'm playing referee between longtime friends fighting over the drummer girl. The next I'm Mean Mommy Jillian hiding liquor bottles from the guitarist who splits his time between impromptu stomach pumps at the local emergency room and unscheduled overnight accommodations in the local police station's drunk tank.

And don't even get me started on the one whose name starts with "Letty Dillinger." A hypersexual, walking special effect, she can be the best or the worst of them all, depending on which side of the bed the wet spot is on and whether she woke up on it.

I'm tired. I miss my best friend, the ex-husband who left me for a man. (It's okay. Turns out I'm a lesbian and didn't know it. Go figure.) I long for the touch of a woman who can take me away from the chaos whipping my life like an egg beater, if only for a little while. If the horny beast trapped inside this cage doesn't get out soon, my job, my band, my reputation might not survive.

I don't need love. I just need an orgasm. A really long, hard, knuckle-whitening, teeth-clenching, window-rattling, thigh-splitting climax.

Unfortunately, my employers--Letty especially--aren't going to like where I'm going to get it.
__________

Formerly published in draft form on Wattpad, BANG has been professionally edited and updated for retail sale. BANG is LGBTQ erotica that includes FF, MMF, FFF, BDSM, and may trigger sensitive readers. It is not a romance.

Review
4.5 Stars


I love this series and I'm beyond thrilled that we are not saying goodbye to these characters just quite yet. Kendall Grey does it again! She writes and delivers a story that will have you completely consumed from the very beginning. 

I love the way Kendall Grey writes. It's just so unapologetic. It's raw. It's dirty. And it's downright delectable. I absolutely love Jillian. She is independent, fierce and loyal to the band. What she's endured is both exhilarating and sad. It's exhilarating because the sex is just off the charts but sad because of the emotional turmoil she has to suffer through. The sacrifices she's made and her attitude just make her a character that no doubt you will absolutely love.

It's always great coming back to this series and seeing glimpses of the couples that I've fallen in love with and now I get to add Jillian in the mix. Kendell Grey is just an amazingly talented writer and this was a great addition to the series.
