SYNOPSIS:

Tiffany
Leading a nomadic life, I’ve been on the run from my rich ex-husband for years. I’ve learned every trick in the book, staying one step ahead of him and his trackers. He’s taken everything from me, and despite everything, I’ve managed to carve out a life. But he’s getting close again. It’s time to hit the road, to start over…but it looks like the universe has other plans.
Ryder
As Sargent at Arms, stalking the crazy man trying to kill my MC brothers is part of my job description. Protecting the club is what I live for. Unfortunately, today I’m the loser in our never ending game of cat and mouse. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room is staring up at the sky while bleeding out onto the cold, hard pavement. Then the pretty nurse walks in and turns my world sideways, and those soft hands know just how to handle a big, angry biker like me. With a psycho on my tail, the stakes couldn’t be higher. I know I should walk away, but self-preservation has never been much of a strong suit. As my enemy closes in, I’ve got no gun, three bullet holes, and absolutely zero patience left. The question is, who will be the one to sign my death warrant—the crazy-ass biker who’s gunning for me…or the sexy-as-sin nurse I’ve got a hard-on for?

Excerpt

“Call me Ryder.” His head was still throbbing, and his fingers were half numb, but he wanted to hear his name on her lips. Taking a deep breath, he allowed his eyes to drift from her face down to her chest, landing on her name badge. Tiffany Stone, RN. Looking up to recapture her eyes, he spoke quietly. “Miss Tiffany, if I’m going to survive, I need your help.”
“I don’t know how I can be any more help than I already have in this situation. I’m just a nurse.”
He hated seeing the fear so clearly stamped on her attractive face as she gazed up at him.
Cupping her face in his hands, he tried to communicate the urgency of his need. Meeting her eyes, his words were sincere when he told her, “I can’t be found here, electronically or physically. You are the only person I have right now. Will you help me?”
After facing off with the estranged man, Ryder could tell that his open honesty affected her, softening her to his request.
“Look, doll, you were amazing. How often do you get the chance to match wits with a killer while a man’s life hangs in the balance?”
Ignoring his attempt at humor, she replied thoughtfully, “Fine, Ryder. This is my last day at this job, so I’ll take a chance for you. Updating your information in our database shouldn’t be too difficult, since we have identity issues with our patients off and on. If I don’t modify that information, they might give him information on you if they think he’s family.
“Him coming here again is too much of a risk for you and the other patients we’re treating, so it’s a lesser of two evils kind of choice for me. In fact, we might be able to stash you in one of the empty offices in the back for the night, then on the off chance that he comes barreling back in here, he won’t find you lying helpless on your back.”
Grabbing her by the arm, he whispered, “You’re a woman after my own heart.”
Ignoring his gentle flirting, she placed a warm hand on his chest and eased him back again. “I’ll be back when things calm down, gorgeous. In an hour or so, it’ll be a ghost town out there. You’ll likely be transferred to another hospital in the morning. They won’t want to discharge you in your condition.”
“I need my…personal effects.”
Turning her sharp gaze on him, she quipped humorlessly, “I saw your personal effects, Ryder. I’m betting you’d be happy if I just brought your wallet and gun, right?”
“Don’t look at me like that, Tiff. I got a killer on my tail. Of fuckin’ course I want my one and only weapon.”
Sighing, she folded her arms across her chest. “I don’t see how that’s going to happen. The social workers log it and lock it upon arrival. I don’t even have access to it."
“I can’t protect us without a weapon. Can you bring me one in somehow?”
Her eyes got huge. “Are you seriously asking me to bring you a weapon? No, absolutely not. I don’t mind helping you stay alive, but I’m not going to end up in an orange jumpsuit over bringing a perfect stranger a weapon.”
“So, you think I’m perfect?”
Her eyes widened. “What? No. That was a figure of speech.”
Ryder smirked. “You already called me gorgeous. I think you do like the look of me.”
She glared back at him. “Don’t even think of trying to sweet talk me into breaking the law. I won’t do it. Not for you or any other hot guy.”
“So, now I’ve stepped up to hot?” For some godforsaken reason, he couldn’t stop himself from flirting with the adorably innocent nurse. Now was so not the time, but Junior was raring to go.
Rolling her eyes, she folded her arms over her chest. “Sure, you’re hot. Are you happy now?”
“Come, sit on Daddy’s lap.” Where the fuck did that come from? Ryder realized in that moment that his dick was doing all the talking.
“You’re freaking unbelievable. You don’t have time for shit like that. You’re a walking dead man, remember? Get your head together.” The woman’s face was flaming red. Whether it was from true anger or embarrassment, he couldn’t tell, but it was fucking sexy as hell.
Her harsh words felt like getting doused with cold water.
“Whatever you say, Nurse Stone.” He heard his tone of voice change as he edged into asshole mode again. Something about being brought up short by the hot nurse seriously aggravated him. She was all kinds of right about how this wasn’t the time or place, but it still pissed him off.
There would never be an appropriate time for a woman like her to sit on his lap. This was a fact he was all too aware of, and it had him feeling some kind of way.


Review

Marked for Death starts off with action and doesn't let up - pulling the reader straight into battle with Ryder.  A story full of action, danger, banter and so much more, Marked for Death will pull you in and hold you captive until the last word and then have you amped up for more. 

One thing about MC books is that you never know quite what to expect - there's always some drama going on with the MC and an enemy - but there are so many different ways to set it up and let it play out that each book has it's own surprising twists and turns.  With this story, there's just an edge more than the MC drama - because our heroine has her own issues she's bringing to the table.  

Ryder and Tiffany aren't your typical hero and heroine from a MC romance - but their story is sweet and enjoyable.  There's an air of mystery and danger - but the story also follows the connection between them and what they do with their feelings.  

Ryder and Tiffany deliver an interesting story in this quick read introducing a new series. I look forward to seeing where the series takes us and hopefully discovering more about these two with future books.

Release Blitz: Torrid Little Affair by Kendall Ryan

     

TLA Amazon


The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

Cover Reveal: Thresholds by Kate Canterbary


Snowy days, steamy nights.
The Walshes are home for the holidays.


Title: Thresholds
Series: The Walsh Series #8
Author: Kate Canterbary
Cover Design: Okay Creations
Release Date: December 14, 2017

Blurb

'Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the North End
Not a Walsh had his life together, not even his friends;

The parties were planned by the foodies with care,
In hopes that Wes and Erin would soon find their way there;

The men were stressing over last minute shopping lists and plans,
While the ladies were busy with work and nesting and finding the right paella pans;

When out in the dining room there arose such a clatter,
The Halsted dogs sprang from their beds to see what was the matter;

They whistled and shouted and called each other names,
While the secrets and announcements and surprises quickly came;

So onto another adventure they flew
With the sleigh full of Walshes, and the Commodore too—

As they continued arguing and clamoring around,
Down the road an unexpected visitor came with a bound;

But it wasn't long until couples were all nestled snug in their beds,
With new memories of steamy holiday nights dancing in their heads.

Author Bio

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

REVIEW

Wrong to Need You sucked me in from page one and delivered a powerful tale that was more than just a love story.

Jackson left town years ago, after being accused of a crime he didn't commit, now he's back and finds himself surrounded by the reasons he left in the first place -those who still blame him and those he left behind.  But he also finds something else hasn't changed - his willingness to do anything for his best friend, the girl he's loved forever, his brother's widow - Sadia.

Sadia is struggling to get her life together after the death of her husband - between the bills he left behind that she didn't know about and trying to wrangle childcare for their son while keeping their business afloat - she's burning both ends of the candle. But when her brother in law - her former best friend steps in to help - she's torn between staying mad at him and accepting the offered help.

One of my favorite parts of this story was the fact that I found a connection with both of the characters - with Sadia's desire to be a good mom, to take care of things in her life as best she could without spilling all her secrets and her care for Jackson even when she didn't want to admit it.  She was very down to earth and felt like someone I'd want to be friends with in the real world.  Jackson's feelings also struck chords with me and had me in his corner from the start.

I enjoyed watching as secrets and hidden truths came out throughout this story - they added an extra layer to the characters and their story and pulled me in further, leaving me rooting for these two to find happiness together.  The story moved at a steady pace which felt right and real for these characters and their love story.  I also enjoyed the small town aspects of the story - they added a little extra drama but also showed credit to the past.

REVIEW

Noah is an emotional and heartfelt read.  It delivers the story of a man - a Navy Seal - who leaves the service to take on his 5 year old niece when she loses her mother.  But more than that it's the story of a man who comes home and finds more than he bargained for.

With the help of Teagan and her son Will, Noah dives right in to parenting and finds himself learning with Bella as he does.  As she helps Noah learn the ropes of parenting, Teagan and he become close and eventually that friendship grows into more.  I really enjoyed the path these two took together - they really grew close and were good friends before allowing their other feelings to take over.

This book tugs on the heart strings in many ways, but it also filled me with a hopeful feeling as I read.  I laughed, I wanted to cry, I worried, and I fell in love.  It's strongly written as all of Cristin Harber's books are, and I really enjoyed the world created and each of the characters within.

Review Tour: The Brightest Embers by Jeanienne Frost

Title: The Brightest Embers
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Harlequin
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb: You can run from your destiny, but you can't hide…
Ivy thought that she and Adrian had conquered their fates. Yet with thousands of innocents still trapped in the demon realms, she's determined to locate the final hallowed weapon and harness its unparalleled power to free them. But the last relic nearly put Ivy in the grave—there's probably no coming back from this one.
Adrian's dark lineage has made him the most powerful of his kind, yet even his incredible abilities might not be enough now. Instead, the treacherous fate he has fought so hard to escape might be the only way he can save Ivy. Their scintillating bond has been tested before, but never with so much on the line. Now fate will come head-to-head against true love, and nothing they've endured can prepare Ivy and Adrian for the unthinkable choices they'll face…
Don't miss the earth-shattering conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series.

REVIEW



The Brightest Embers is teh final book in the Broken Destiny series and it gives us the last part of Ivy and Adrian's story. 

This book finishes the adventure we started with the first of the series and gives us an action filled ending that pulls us in deeper and leaves us guessing. Though Ivy and Adrian's story concludes - I felt there were a few things I'd have liked to see more resolution from.  

Ivy is one of my favorite heroines - because she's so different, she's independent and yet those she works with and calls friend or family - she loves wholely.  I love how she's intent on her mission - but she's not so wrapped up in it that she doesn't think things through - she worries for others over herself.  

The way Frost blends the romance between Ivy and Adrian with everything else that is going on around them - this war between the realms builds up the story in a very compelling way.  Along with that is the very real experiences these two face as they work together and discover new things about themselves and their abilities/powers.  

If you love a touch of the supernatural, action, adventure, and surprising turns plus a swoon-worthy romance - you should start this series today and dive into the Broken Destiny world Frost has created. You won't be disappointed with what you find between the pages.



Jeaniene Frost is the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling author of the Night Huntress series, the Night Prince series, the Broken Destiny series, and the upcoming Night Rebel series.

BOOK BLURB:

Once upon a time there was a wingman named Tom who had the reputation of being catnip for women.

Now the Tom Cat’s been domesticated and about to become a dad for the first time. If he can survive Hailey’s pregnancy, Baby 101 classes, and the holidays with his family.

Let’s hope the stork has his own wingmen. Because Tom’s not the only one of the guys to catch baby fever. In fact, the whole island seems to have it.

This is one Christmas on Whidbey no one will ever forget.

 


REVIEW

Wingmen Babypalooza is a fun, quick read that delivers a special Holiday gift to the Wingmen and their ladies (along with us readers). 

As with the Wingmen books, this novella will pull you straight into their world and leave you laughing, swooning, and falling in love all over again.  

From Tom and Hailey and their first baby, to John and Diane who have been there before, to Ros and Dan, each character is present in this novella, making me miss this world of characters and happy to dive back in, if only for a little while.  

Daisy Prescott delivers this novella about our favorite couple's future in the same way she gave us their original stories - comedic gold, close friends and family, and a touch of their own specialness (Read Tom's crazy humor!).
