Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen, #5) by Tillie Cole

Release Date: 17th April 2017

Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and very mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

“Well?” Ky asked.
Tanner ran his hand over his head. The brother hadn’t attended one of our cookouts or slutfests in weeks. Not that he ever entertained himself with sluts—still too hard for his piece of pussy down in Mexico. He’d been busy trying to track down Meister. Unlike most of the white-power shit Tanner and Tank grew up with, this Meister was untraceable and off the grid. As much of a computer whizz kid as Tanner was, Meister was proving to be one slippery fucking snake to pin down.
“Gotta be honest, I didn’t think I was anywhere close to finding anything on this prick.” Tanner nodded toward Tank. “We knew of him, of course. I knew he had dealings with my father and uncle, just never met him myself. He’s Aryan Brotherhood, but works closely with the Klan. And there’s nothing on him. No email traces, no invoices, no texts. Nothing.”
I gritted my teeth and glanced at Styx, who was listening closely. Ky wasn’t originally gonna tell the prez about the plan to get Phebe, because of his fucking wedding, but that didn’t last long. Styx knew something was up with his VP. He read him like I read Flame and Vike. So Ky fessed up, and Styx was all for the plan. He’d had to push his wedding back by a month anyhow to get the pastor Mae wanted to conduct the ceremony, so he had time to kill.
“But you found something?” Ky translated as Styx signed.
Tanner sighed, the black circles around his eyes showing how hard the brother had been working. “I got something.” He shook his head, and my blood ran cold. I knew whatever he had found wasn’t good.
Tanner opened the file in front of him and threw a photograph toward the prez. Styx looked at it, then gave it to Ky. “Some middle-of-nowhere ghost town?”
Ky passed the picture around. Vike handed it to me, and I studied it. It was an aerial shot, and the picture was grainy, but from what I could make out, it was just a huge piece of land scattered with decrepit old buildings.
I passed the picture along. “Fucker owns this?”
Tanner faced me. “Yeah, or at least his father did. He’s dead now, but the deeds are still in his father’s name. Been in the family for decades. Took me a while to trace it.” He shook his head. “Meister is notorious among the Klan. Right, Tank?”
“Yeah,” Tank agreed. “Never met him either, but we’d all heard of him. Prick has been mobilizing for years for the race war they think is coming. Real serious, Oklahoma-City-bomb shit. From what we’ve heard, the guy has a one-track mind when it comes to advancing the white race. You think Hitler was fucked up? Well, imagine if he had a kid who was one built motherfucker, with a fucking carbon copy of his psycho mind; and you’ve got Meister. Fucker ain’t even German. Just wishes he was, spouting German phrases around like he’s born and bred Berlin. Delusional asshole.”
“This ain’t gonna be easy,” Tanner finished, looking at me, Vike, Flame, Hush and Cowboy. It was the five of us who had agreed to go looking for Phebe. Hush and Cowboy nodded at me to let me know they were still in.
“So he’s in this ghost town?” Ky asked, translating Styx’s sign language again. “If so, we’ll all just go in and get him, make the fucker talk and tell us where he’s got Phebe.”
Tanner sat forward. “He ain’t just living in the ghost town or hiding out. That’s where he has his enterprise.”
“Enterprise?” Ky echoed. It was his own question this time.
Tanner nodded. “From what I can tell, it’s a fucking brothel. Members of the Aryan Brotherhood, Klan, or Klan sympathizers, can go there for a night or a few days at a time.” Tank shifted uncomfortably next to him. “Ain’t sure, but I’m thinking it ain’t just getting your dick sucked and fucked. It’ll be real fucked-up shit. If Meister’s reputation is anything to go by, we would be walking into an organized, armed hellhole.” Tanner’s eyes darkened. “I get the Klan has a reputation for being full of backward rednecks. I ain’t gonna lie—growing up, most of my father’s cronies were that way. Thick as fuck and couldn’t do shit without screwing it up. Skinheads, lower-ranked soldiers, you know?”
“But there were some members that weren’t,” Tank continued. He cast an embarrassed glance at Tanner. “We weren’t, for starters.”
Tanner nodded. “It’s not the norm, but some of us were good. Smart, strong fighters, or just outright fucking psychos. The skinheads and rednecks are the foot soldiers. The likes of us, the likes of Meister, are the fucking SS. The planners, leaders, the generals—the ones who believe in the cause so much that they’re fucking lethal with what they’ll do, what they’re capable of. Meister is true Aryan Brotherhood; he’s preparing for war. He’s the real fucking deal.”
“And now he’s in our neck of the woods to stir up shit?” I asked.
Tanner nodded. “Comes from northern Texas. Never moved our way before. But the Klan are building day by day, joining forces with other white supremacist gangs—like the Brotherhood—and with the shit that’s on the news twenty-four-seven, blacks and whites at each others throats, he’s moved to the headquarters.” The brother’s jaw clenched. “To my father and uncle, who’ll be protecting him from being found out by the feds.” He sighed and ran his hand down his face. “From what I can figure out, this ghost-town brothel of his has only existed in the last year or so. He’s looking to fund something.”
“They ain’t dealing guns?” Cowboy drawled. “I thought that’s what Rider said the contract with the cult was for?”
“Rider was sure it was guns. At least it was when he was dealing with the Klan—it was all about arms. The Klan was selling them on and taking a cut.”
“His fucking twin,” Hush spat. “He changed the arrangement, didn’t he? When Rider was locked up in cult prison?”
“Think so,” Tanner said after a few seconds of silence.
“Then what the fuck are they dealing? What was Judah giving them if not Israeli guns?”
“Women.”

 

Sister Phebe has been a recurring character in the previous novels. She has always been a devout follower of The Order of David, and her actions have directly lead to the detriment of our previous Heroines. It’s fair to say I struggled to hold any affection for her until the previous novel. Her moment of clarity came after the horrifying acts against her sister, Lilah.

Although not a “Cursed women of Eve” Phebe had a role to play in the Order. As a “Sacred Sister” she had been groomed at a young age to ensnare men to the cause, for the cause. When the Hades Hangmen obliterate her word as she knows it, she is delivered from the clutches of The Order into the hands of another evil, Meister.

Since the day they tore down The Order, “AK” has not been able the woman with the red hair and incredible eyes out of his mind. The Order may be abolished but in its place rises a new threat, with a new sadistic leader. The same leader that is holding Phebe captive. With a new plan in place AK had no idea that in freeing Phebe, he will also free himself.

I knew that level of pain he displayed. And I knew how it could rob you of joy. 

I’ll let you into a secret, as eager as I am to get my hands on the next books in this series, I’m equally anxious about how gut wrenching it will be. As a follower of the series, my past experiences are evidence enough of Tillie’s ability to make me ugly cry. In fact, she really excelled herself this time as I could not hold the tears back, even whilst in public. You’d think being armed with the backstory would be enough to prepare me for how emotional of a read this would be, but tell that to my sniffling wreck of a self.

I was incredible grateful for the moments of love and levity that shone through this dark read. It’s the romance that keeps me going, and Phebe and AK’s story literally brought happy tears to my eyes.

“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at. “

Anchor Me teaser 7

I stand there for a moment, enjoy the view and letting my imagination fill in the blanks. But I want more than imagination, and so I peel off the nightgown and let it drop onto the floor. I don’t usually sleep in one unless there are guests in the house, but I’d been wearing it on the couch last night, and Damien hadn’t undressed me when he put me to bed.

Now, I stand naked and watch the shape of him move in the steam. I’d been aroused even before I entered this room, simply from the thought of him. But now, seeing him in this wet heat, my body is on overdrive. My nipples are hard, my sex clenching with need. I want his touch—and I damn well intend to have it.

His back is to me when I open the door, his face in the pounding water. I’ve let a wash of cool air in, though, and he turns to face me. As he does, I see the heat flare in his eyes. More interesting, though, is the way his cock hardens, the immediacy of his reaction making absolutely clear that Damien has no objections to my joining him here this morning.

He opens his mouth to say something, but I press a finger over his lips, then step closer. He’s almost finished his shower, so his body is no longer slick with soap. I consider that a good thing, because as I kiss his chest, he tastes fresh and clean.

I move slowly down, licking his skin, teasing the light smattering of hair on his chest. I flick my tongue over his nipple and am rewarded by the way he grabs my hair, his body stiffening beneath my hands that are sliding down his body, too, keeping time with the progress of my kisses.

I go lower, dropping to my knees as I reach his navel. His abs are rock hard and the muscles quiver under my lips. I can tell I’m driving him crazy, and he tightens his grip on my hair even as his other hand reaches for the side of the stall to steady himself.

Lower and lower, my lips teasing his skin, tracing that magical line of hair that leads from just below his navel all the way down to his cock. And when I reach it, thick and wet, I draw my tongue along the velvet steel as Damien moans under my ministrations.

With purposeful slowness, I lick around the head, then flick the end of my tongue over the tip, tasting the pre-come. Then I draw him in, and as I do, the hand that Damien has twined in my hair shifts to the back of my head. At first he just holds me steady, but as I suck in long, deep strokes, he groans with satisfaction and longing, and tightens his grip.

Right now, I’m the one in control, but I can feel that control slipping from me. No, not slipping. Damien is grabbing it by grabbing me—by holding tight to my hair and keeping me in place as he fucks my mouth, totally turning the tables on me.

But I don’t care. I’m too turned on to care, and as his cock fills my mouth and water pounds down over us, I slip my hand between my legs and touch myself, then whimper softly. I’m slick and swollen and so turned on it’s painful, and as I suck my husband’s cock, I tease myself, seeking release.

I’m close, too, so close I can feel electricity filling my body like an approaching thunderstorm. I can feel the tension building in Damien, too, and I know the explosion is coming.

Doesn’t matter. He pulls back, leaving my mouth open in surprise. Then he pulls me to my feet and turns me around, his hands gliding over my wet skin as he spins me. “Hands on the wall,” he demands, and I comply eagerly as his fingers slide over my ass to find my core. And then his cock is there, and he’s pounding inside of me, his hands tight on my breasts as he orders me to “finish what you started, baby. Touch yourself. I want to feel you come with me.”

I don’t hesitate, and as Damien’s wet body slaps against mine—as he thrusts deeper and deeper inside me—I tease my clit, feeling the shockwaves gather inside me, readying for an explosion.

And when Damien’s body goes rigid—when he thrusts hard that one final time—when he releases completely inside me, that’s when I finally go over, my deep cry of satisfaction ringing out in harmony with his as our bodies shake and quiver together from the force of our simultaneous release.

When the shockwaves have faded, he turns me gently in his arms, then rinses me off before shutting off the stream of warm water. He opens the door, and steam curls into the rest of the bathroom.

He leads me out onto the fluffy bathmat, then uses a thick, cotton towel to dry me off.

Only then do I lean my head back, smile, and speak to him for the first time. “Good morning, Mr. Stark.”

“Yes,” he says, matching my grin. “It is.”

Anchor Me teaser 3


★ 4 STARS★

I welcome any opportunity dive headlong into the world of The Starks. I’ve been addicted to their brand of love from the moment I first met them. Although extremely fortunate, it has not always been an easy road for Nikki and Damien. Through it all they have weathered the storm and look to each other as one another’s anchor.

Their horizon is blighted by some emotionally devastating events that are enough to drag any couple to the lowest ebb. What sets them apart is the ferocity of their love and the strength of conviction they have in it.

J. Kenner’s Stark series never fails to seduce with its luxurious writing and enthralling ability to sweep readers of their feet. Once again I found myself charmed by a spell I hope will never wear off.

★BLOG TOUR & REVIEW★ TWIST (DIVE BAR, #2) BY KYLIE SCOTT

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Published by St. Martin's Press

Dive-Bar-banner-with-Chaser

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AUS | Amazon CA | iBooksB&N | Kobo | Google Play

twistFrom New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott comes the second sizzling stand-alone novel in the Dive Bar series!

When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot bearded bartender Joe Collins only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, fascinating, and pretty much everything he’s been looking for in a woman—except that she lives across the country. Soon they’re emailing up a storm and telling each other their deepest, darkest secrets…except the one that really matters.

When Alex pays Joe a surprise visit, however, they both discover that when it comes to love, it’s always better with a twist.

★4.5 STARS★

It’s not very often you read a romance which involves a heroine with a phobia of intimacy. In many respects Alex Parks goes against the grain with what to expect from a leading lady. She can count her friends (one of them being a squirrel) on one hand, and she’s in her element locked away at home with no human contact for days on end.

It’s taken a huge amount of bravery on her part to turn up unannounced to her online love interests birthday party, unfortunately for Alex, the surprise is on her.

Joe Collins has some explaining to do. His intention of shutting down his brother’s online dating profile went awry the moment he began chatting with Alex. Before he knew it, he’d come to enjoy and depend on Alex’s friendship. He had intended to come clean; he just never thought he’d have to do it face to face.

Understandably Alex is upset, furious even, but I’d be a damn liar if I said I didn’t eat up every minute of it. Rather than be upset with Joe, I wanted to protect the glorious blond mountain man. He instantly enamoured himself to me with his vulnerability that was so at odds with his towering frame.

As closed off as Alex is, she’s a feisty thing (and don’t tell her I said this, but utterly adorable), much to my enjoyment she has no hesitations in telling Joe what she thinks of him. His pleads for a second chance fall on deaf ears until an act of fate steps in.

Twist once again marks the wonderful return of Kylie and her fantastic characters. Much like her Stage Dive series, it really was a group effort when it comes to my overall enjoyment of the novel. Scott serves up the perfect mix of banter, friendship and romance with a dirty twist that’s sure to leave you with a raging book hangover.

★BLOG TOUR, EXCERPT & REVIEW★ I DON’T BY ELLA FOX

Buy Links: Amazon USAmazon CAAmazon UKAmazon AU |

Title: I Don’t
Author: Ella Fox
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: April 3, 2017

Done.
Finished.
Kaput.

Whatever you want to call it, the bride-to-be won’t be at the church on time.

Walking away from her fiancé was the hardest thing Ava has ever done. After all, the sexy and charming Mateo is everything she’s ever wanted—and more. But she needs to protect herself—and her heart—before it’s shattered once and for all.

Mateo has no choice but to let her go. His woman needs space, and he loves her enough to give it to her—no matter how much he hates it. The only thing keeping him sane is the certainty that their separation will be short-lived.

Ava thinks it’s over, but she’s about to find out that Mateo will stop at nothing to turn her “I Don’t” into an “I Do.”

★3.5 STARS★

Most brides can’t wait to make the trip down the aisle, but such is not the case for Avelina Saez. In fact she has expressed her need for space from her would-be husband. After what he deems a reasonable amount of time, Mateo Cruz is back to collect his bride, and he’s not taking I Don’t for an answer.

There was much intrigue to be had with this less than harmonious couple. Mateo’s devotion to Ava is both unwavering and unquestionable, which is why I was completely intrigued by her resounding opposition to their union. She’s adamant the man before her has deceived her and will not allow herself to give in to his charms.

I, for one, always enjoy the sight of an alpha weak in the knees for his lady and Mateo certainly delivered. As the story unfolds its apparent there is memory loss on Ava’s part, which I suppose unfairly on my part, made her hard work at times. Mateo on the other hand had the patience of a saint and the body of Spanish god. Yum.

I Don’t is a sweet, fiery romance with enough passion to throw a bouquet at.


“It’s Mr. Gretchen isn’t it?”
“Um, no,” Ben answered, “This is most definitely not Mr. Gretchen.”
“Okayyy,” I drawled. “You’re acting weird, so I have to assume it’s someone unusual. Is it the President? George Clooney? Oh, wait. I know. It’s Channing Tatum. If I’ve told him once, I’ve told him a dozen times not to call me at work—”
“Not even close. This man—he says he’s your fiancé.”
My heart stopped beating for several seconds. When it started up again, I assured myself I was asleep. Yep, that had to be it. I was having a nightmare. With my free hand, I pinched my thigh, wincing at the twinge of pain. Dammit, I was awake.
No, no, no, I chanted inwardly as I started to panic. I was nowhere near ready to deal with him. Surely he wouldn’t have tracked me down at work. With me gone, he should be living the bachelor life to the fullest, so busy dealing with his social calendar that thinking of me was impossible. I prayed that there was some kind of mistake or that whoever was on the phone wasn’t him. Maybe it was someone calling for another Ava. That could happen, right?
“His voice,” I whispered. “Does he sound—”
“Spanish?” Ben supplied. “Yeah.”
I’d been about to ask if he sounded like a stubborn son-of-a-bitch, but Spanish told me what I needed to know.

★BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY★ LEGALLY CHARMING BY LAUREN SMITH

Genres: Contemporary Romance, New Adult

Available at:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play

Title: Legally Charming by Lauren Smith

Release Date: 13th March 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

THE RIGHT DRESS CAN CATCH THE EYE OF PRINCE CHARMING…

Felicity Hart has one goal: Completing her masters in art. Falling in love isn’t part of the plan. She reluctantly agrees to attend a Halloween party with her best friend. After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen. Eyes that belong to the one man who could turn her well organized world upside down. When he flashes that wicked, panty-melting smile at her the vow to not fall in love seems impossible…

EVERY PRINCE IS LOOKING FOR HIS SLEEPING BEAUTY TO KISS…

Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy.

WHEN MIDNIGHT STRIKES AND COACHES TURN TO PUMPKINS…

Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been?

Available NOW:  

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | Google Play


Twenty four year old Felicity Hart’s humble beginnings are the driving force behind her need to succeed. On course to completing her Art History degree, she covets a lucrative position in Los Angeles Museum of Art. On the rare occasion she does let her hair down; she attends a fancy dress party held by her best friend’s boyfriend. As much as she tries to have fun, it really isn’t her scene and she escapes the solitude of his brother’s unused room for the night.

For thirty year old Associate attorney Jared Redmond, progressing in his career is his main and only priority. He works long gruelling hours and (even if he wanted one), does not have time for relationships or distractions. His version of celebrating his latest success involves crashing for the night, but his plans take an unexpected turn when he finds his bed occupied by a sleeping Princess.

The synopsis to Legally Charming promised a sweet romance, and that that is exactly what Lauren Smith delivered. It’s an easy going romance, low in angst and fairy-tale like nature. It is guilty of being somewhat predictable, but what’s not to love about a romance where the heroine gets swept of her feet.

Eilish Cassidy has always been a sensible girl. She isn’t the sort to have her head turned by boys or celebrity, after all, her cousin is ruby star Sean Cassidy.

It’s on the evening of her cousin’s wedding that she meets a player she has secretly admired from afar, Bryan Leech. He’s more than she could ever have expected and Eilish can’t help but think she’s found her Prince Charming.

When the sun rises, in place of our prince is an intoxicated frog. It’s horrifying for Eilish to discover he was drunk the whole time. She’s hurt and embarrassed, but the consequences of that night mean it will be one she will never forget.

Five years later, she’s making a way for herself and her son, Patrick. Coming face to face with Bryan is a hazard of her role of the ruby teams physiotherapist. With the shame of not even being remembered by him is the guilt and fear of the secret she is keeping mum about.

Bryan was a villain for all of five minutes. It’s clear his vast transformation is genuine and I became his cheerleader almost straight away. Although he does not remember Eilish then, he’s certainly enamoured with her now.

“I want you, Eilish. I want you with every breath I take.”

Cosway and Reid go together like all the great the combinations you can think of. It’s always a quirky, refreshing experience reading their perfectly imperfect, lovable characters.

About Penny Reid:

pennyreidauthorpic

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

★BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY★ MASTERING HER SENSES BY LAURA KAYE

Genres: BDSM, Erotic Romance

MASTERING HER SENSES - Review Tour banner

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

 

12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life.
Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

MASTERING HER SENSES - Cover

 MASTERING HER SENSES (Blasphemy #2) by Laura Kaye

Buy Links: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks

 

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

MasteringHerSenses_AvailableNow

There seems to be no stopping Laura Kaye and this sensual, emotionally gripping series.

With each Master comes a new fantasy and a new story to unfold. Of all the Masters, it’s Quinton Ross that had intrigued me the most. He appeared to be the most aloof and domineering and I had a feeling his story was going to be a special one.

Cassia Locke is a submissive who seeks the guidance from Q after an accident leaves her paralysed with fear when triggered. Not only is Q a specialist in sensory deprivation, he’s also the Dom whom she had a brief dalliance before it was prematurely cut short.

It’s been two years ago since Q has seen the little Sub who stood him up. She’s back and in desperate need for his help. As a Dom it’s his duty to guide her. His Domly concern soon gives way to genuine feelings, and what unfolds are lessons neither one of them could have imagined.

It was a surprisingly sweeter read than I had imagined, and although an enjoyable one, I must say of all the novels, it took me slightly longer to warm up.

★BLOG TOUR & REVIEW★ ROYALLY MATCHED BY EMMA CHASE

Genres: Contemporary Romance

RM-FB-on-sale-5

Buy Links: Kindle | Amazon Paperback | iBooks | Nook | B&N Paperback | Kobo | BAM | IndieBound

Title: Royally Matched by Emma Chase

Series: (Royally #2)

Release Date: 21st February 2017

Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook is an incorrigible flirt, and an accomplished ladies’ man.  He also happens to be next in line to the throne and the future King of Wessco. Admittedly the reluctant Royal is having a hard time adjusting to his role and the responsibility placed upon him. Under the watchful eye of his Grandmother, Queen Lenora, Henry must make the transition from Prince to King, and become a man worthy to lead his people.

The Charming Prince he is, Henry persuades the Queen to let him do things his way. Unbeknownst to her, his way includes a film crew, a tawdry reality show and host of society’s most noble woman vying to become his Queen. It isn’t one of Henry’s brightest ideas, but for my own selfish reasons, it happens to be the best.

Enter Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, or rather her sister Penelope. As a condition of her sister Penny being allowed to appear on the show, Sarah must accompany her to ensure she toes the line. There are a great many things Sarah would rather do with her time, but the added incentive of being excused from a daunting work engagement mean she too will be part of the Royally Matched experience, albeit from the side-lines.

Emma’s male POV has always been a delight to read and I’ll never tire of hearing it, on this occasion we also treated to POV of our Heroine, Sarah. I can’t tell you how much I adored Sarah; she’s a darling of a character and a real gem in the crown of this story. She’s shy and introspective, but is also bold and exudes a charm that catches the eye of our Prince.

Henry’s transformation was admirable and a pleasure to witness. Although he has many missteps along the way, he eventually finds his footing and his Queen.

Reading Royally Matched was a like a fairy-tale within a fairy-tale, I always have no end of fun when it comes to an Emma Chase novel. I am without a doubt chomping at the bit for Royally Endowed and see no end to Emma Chases reign as one of my favourite authors.

★BLOG TOUR & REVIEW★ A THOUSAND LETTERS BY STACI HART

Genres: Contemporary Romance

“Lyrical, heartbreaking, and emotionally intense, A THOUSAND LETTERS is a beautiful portrait of an undying love that deserves a second chance.”

Melanie Harlow, USA Today Bestselling Author

A Thousand Letters, an all-new emotional standalone by Staci Hart is LIVE!!!

cover-wrap-atl

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

I was drawn to the synopsis of A Thousand Letters from the moment I read it. I was struck by what promised to be a torturously emotional read, and intrigued as to what could have been the cause of the dissolution of a love that seemed so great. Essentially it’s a second chance romance and a story of self discovery. It’s a gentle novel but it’s emotional impact is a huge one.  

As well as living with a decision that directly shaped the course of her future, Elliot comes face to face with her past through a tragic circumstance. She loved and lost her soulmate before they were able to have the life they had planned for. Now with his return, in less jubilant circumstances, old wounds must be reopened before there can be any chance to heal.

The writing is poetic and easily drew on my emotions. I felt the deep yearning and the sadness of a love that was lost. The pain and fear conveyed were almost tangible, and I felt the author wonderfully navigated through the angst that circled throughout the novel. Admittedly I did become slightly distracted by the villainesque nature of Elliot’s family, but overall I enjoyed my first experience of Staci Hart’s wonderful writing.

★BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY★ THE RAKEHELL’S SEDUCTION BY LAUREN SMITH

Genres: Historical Romance

The Rakehell’s Seduction by Lauren Smith

Genre: Historical Romance

Available at:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo  | Google Play

HE’S MADE A DANGEROUS WAGER

Ambrose Worthing is no gentleman. He’s a proud cold-hearted rake who’s determined to stay a bachelor forever. He enjoys bedding a different woman every night without the risk of falling in love. When he hears about a wager over the seduction and ruination of the daughter of his father’s best friend, he knows he must intervene. Committing himself to the bet, he agrees to seduce Lady Alexandra Rockford—for her own good. He never expected the lady in question to be a beautiful, fiery creature who has passions of her own that call to his guarded heart.

SHE’S VOWED NEVER TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

Alexandra Rockford has sworn off men, her heart still broken from the false promises of a childhood sweetheart who left her to marry an heiress. When she stumbles into Ambrose outside of a country ball, she knows the rake is trouble. His smile, his touch, his forbidden kiss are all too tempting but being with him would ruin her. Determined to enjoy herself without falling in love, Alex can’t help but let her defenses down with the too charming rake. But when she discovers Ambrose is seducing her to win a bet, it will take everything Ambrose has to prove to her that he is worthy to love her.

Available at:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo  | Google Play

★4 of 5 stars

Ambrose Worthing is a rake if ever there was one. A confirmed bachelor, he scoffs at the mere notion of monogamy, and makes no bones about enjoying the trappings of his freedoms. A cad though he is, he refuses to sit idly by when he learns of the intended ruination of a family friend for the purpose of handsome wager.

If you thought he intended to inform the injured party, you’d be wrong. He’s a cad remember? He intends to win the wager by seducing the Lady and in doing so, save her from the unsavoury characters that also wish to pursue her.

The Lady in question is, Lady Alexandra Rockford. She’s an immediately likeable character, completely at odds with the stuffy sensibilities of society. She’s opinionated, free spirited, and needs not the security of a marriage to acknowledge her self worth.

Although unaware of the wager, she’s more than aware of Ambrose’s reputation. Suspicion and intrigue circle with his new found interest in her. It’s a delicious game of cat and mouse, and one they soon have far too much fun playing. Alex’s tricks brought much humour, and believe it or not, Ambrose proved to be quite the charming character.

The Rakehell’s Seduction was a delightful, sultry read and wonderful addition to a series that’s fast becoming a favourite. I’ve throughly enjoyed my foray into Lauren Smiths world of rakes, and I look forward to being ravaged by the next.
