Let's start off by saying this is a new author for me and I loved this story from cover to cover but, "I absolutely HATE reading books with cliffhangers !"
 
I loved this new MC romance from cover to cover as the story had wonderful characters all very complicated in their own right.Once I started reading the story I was fully enmeshed in it from the very beginning to the very end and never put it down.
 
I always pick a favorite character in the story to rave about and my choice this time around is going to be Tess.OMG! I loved her what a feisty fireball she was with a huge sense of humor,she was full of spunk,she was sexy,mouthy,had a backbone made of steel,and pure enjoyment to read about.Although Tess is all those things she is haunted by her past as well as being heartbroken and dead inside (a heart of Ice) her beliefs not mine I only saw a survivor and a strong and amazing women to be admired.I loved learning about what brought Tess to the Devil Reach MC Clubhouse.Tess's story was heart wrenching and made me want to cry when I heard it .My heart broke for her and everything she had to go through and deal in her very short life so far.I don't know how she survived it all really.Perhaps Brick helped with that he was Tess's bleak life and I am so glad that she found some kind of solace with her among her chaotic loveless life.A 18 year friendship that lasted the test of time and circumstances.I love their friendship as they were like brother and sister but, so much more.
 
Trigger OMG! I man with layers! I have to say this man frightened even me,I found him to be tall,dark,handsome,dangerous,protective,overbearing,also a killer,and also love-able at the same time."Does that make sense?"You have to get to know the broken man first but, once you see how he is with his nephew Fin and Tess you will see for yourself.There is a loving and caring man below the surface even though he thinks he is dead inside but, we see rare glimpses of the heart beating within his chest.Trigger is a character you love to hate but, he makes it impossible not to love this broken man.Circumstances made the Trigger the man we have grown to love but, at the same time I wished he would find just a sliver of happiness for just once in is horrible life."When I say horrible it's beyond anything you can imagine."I believe Tess to be his savior and he hers.Two broken souls find solace in one another.As the pages turned and the story unfolded it seemed that Tess and Trigger became lighter and less tense and perhaps were finally grasping a bit of happiness that each haven't felt in a very long time."I loved seeing how they were with one another."Awe.......I thought these two people were meant for one another perhaps, not to heal bought to offer a peace of solace for one another.
 
Trigger and Tess's chemistry was of the charts.Holy fanning! Hot Hot hotter ! Their sexual encounters were hot as hell! 
"I want some of that bad boy myself."
Holy smokes! Flip your switch for me Trigger! LOL
 
Overall we loved everything about the story.
 
We loved the characters,the drama,the mystery,suspense,danger,betrayals and of course the romance.I loved hearing Tess's and Triggers tragic stories of their upbringing lost loves my heart broken for the unfairness life dealt them both.
"It broke my heart time and time again."I loved the climatic ending even though "I hate cliffhangers!"I could not wait to dive into book two and did just that and read that story from beginning to end in one sitting yet again.Love Love Loved it!
 
Personal note: Ms Drake has gained a new fan of her works.

For Demons Book #2
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“If what becomes too much? Minnie…” I tried to grab her hand, but she veered off toward Brick. “I thought it was just an edible, as in pot.”
 
“Hello again, leather pants.” Rail appeared at my side. “I was wondering when we were going to meet you again.” 
 
Trigger rolled up on his bike. He was in a black t-shirt that hugged his biceps and chest, and dark jeans and boots. His cut seemed a bit tight, a sign he had been working out a lot. 
 
He didn’t remove his sunglasses, but his stare nearly made me trip as I walked over and took the helmet he handed me. 
 
“You look good,” he muttered. “You’ve been missing for the past week.” 
 
“Just dealing with some stuff.” 
 
“I don’t like it.”
 
“I know.” I flipped my hair back and pulled the helmet on. “Me either.” I swung my leg over the bike and rested my hands on his hips, and he pulled me so I hugged him. He flicked the engine over and backed us out. 
 
An hour later, we hit a wall of traffic and came to a complete stop. That was when I began to notice the leather cut that wrapped Trigger’s midsection was as smooth as lamb skin. As I moved my sensitive fingertips over it, I felt a ball of warmth grow in my belly. 
 
My thighs flexed as Trigger shifted his weight. I didn’t mean to ball his shirt in my hands, but fuck me, everything felt amazing. 
 
“You okay?” His raspy voice caught me off guard, and I jolted on the seat, and oh-my-God, it was amazing. “Tess?” 
 
“Please stop moving,” was all that shot out of my mouth. He flipped up his visor and turned to look at me. I shook my head and moaned as his ass rubbed my front. My jaw clenched, and I started to grind my teeth.
 
“Put your visor up.” 
 
Oh, shit, don’t get alpha on me. I may lose it right here on the freeway. 
 
I quickly shoved it up and stared into his confused eyes. 
 
“What are you on?” 
 
“Nothing.” I almost moaned when he moved again. 
 
He stared a beat longer before he snapped his visor down and turned back around. 
 
Ohhh, yes. I wanted to tap his shoulder to get him to do that again, but the traffic started to move. 
 
Sweet, horny Lucifer. I’d broken out in a light layer of sweat, and my thighs burned from the grip on the seat. Three hours on the bike, and its vibrations had built me up to a pleasure-painful level. I’d finish myself off if I weren’t surrounded by the crew. 
 
Thankfully, Trigger signaled we were stopping for a break at the next rest stop. We took the exit and rolled up at the light before the small park. 
 
When Trigger kicked his foot out to stabilize us, I grabbed the side of his leg and begged my body to let go. 
 
His hand landed on mine, and I wanted to cry. His touch, his smell, his everything made my world tilt on its axis. I didn’t know how much longer I could hold on. 
 
I was either going to kill someone or have the most mind-blowing orgasm known to woman in public.
 
The bike slowed to a stop, and he proceeded to wiggle around then slid the length of his leg across me. I tossed my helmet, and my palms dug deep into the hot leather. I felt like I was balancing on the loose rocks that lined edge of my orgasm. I had never not-wanted to come so badly in my life. 
 
My mind shifted to images of Trigger touching me. 
 
Oh, no.
 
Oh, yes.
 
Oh, please.
 
“That’s one major fuck-me face.” Rail burst my steamy moment. 
 
I glared at him, but it did nothing for my problem. “What?”
 
“Just makin’ an observation.” 
 
“Observate somewhere else.” 
 
“Yeah, you probably need to finish that off.” He wiggled his fingers and winked. 
 
I closed my eyes and managed to channel my thoughts back to being underneath Trigger. His hands on my skin, his lips on my neck, his…
 
A shadow crossed my face and blocked my warmth. “What did you take?” 
 
A deep jolt tore through me as my mind decided if it he was real or not. 
 
“Please,” I nearly panted. “Don’t talk.” I rubbed my hands down my pants. The leather was warm and sent goosebumps through me. 
 
“What?” 
 
“I’m not entirely sure, as this is the first time I ever took ecstasy, but I think I took ecstasy.” 
 
He blinked “Where did you get E?”

A refined Scottish courtier. A rugged British spy. And an affair that will change the course of history. Everything changes when the shocking deception is revealed in this seductive novel from USA Today bestselling author Sharon Cullen.
 
Ladies in waiting can’t help noticing more than they let on. After so many years at the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, Emma Howard sees quite plainly that the royal couple is anything but happy. Reeling from a failed marriage herself, Emma sympathizes with her beloved queen. But the last thing she wants is for the king to be murdered, let alone to witness the shocking act herself. With her whole world turned upside-down, Emma is saved by the quick thinking of a lowly printer . . . who, unbeknownst to her, is one of England’s most daring spies.
 
At Queen Elizabeth’s behest, Tristan has been stirring discontent against the Scottish nobility. Now that the king is dead, his mission is even more critical. There’s only one complication: the exquisite courtier who’s unexpectedly fallen under Tristan’s protection. Emma rouses his body and his soul. But after she learns that he’s a traitor, the fate of two nations hangs on her response. Tristan’s prepared to risk his life in exchange for hers. Will Emma do the same for the man she’s come to love?

This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.



Let's start off my saying 
that its been sometime since  I have read anything by this author so I was so glad to come across this title and reacquaint myself with her stories.I love reading historical romances but, as of late I have been trying out other gene's and authors but historical romances with always be a favorite of mine.
 
I have to say that I really enjoyed the story as it was a really a sweet romance that developed between Tristan and Emma and I am glad their unlikely paths crossed  for a reason.This couple were super sweet and cute together and I love how their new love developed slowly but, as it turned out really ended up being a healing bond for both of them.
 
I love Emma as she was sweet,kind,charming,caring clever,smart and for a noble not at all haughty or vain but down to earth.For all that Emma has gone through in her short life she has for the most part remained and innocent although not oblivious to the danger that surrounded her.
"I loved this about her. "
 
Tristan was a sweetheart and kind,compassionate, a bit lonely and one who had a few of his own past regrets that weighed him down.Tristan's compassionate nature helped heal Emma mentally and physically and it gave her a new lease on life and in turned healed his own battered heart just by loving him.
 
The story flowed nicely and it was nice to see a couple fall for one another in the mist of the chaos surrounding them as both of them had  loyalties to two different queens yet were perfect for one another.I loved the lengths Emma was willing to go to save the one she loved with no thought of the ramifications to her own safety and future.
 
I love when you can connect with the characters that you read about and I did just that.I loved Tristan and Emma from the onset of the story as you could not help it as they both were both loving and kind.
 
Overall I enjoyed the story and plot and the character's themselves.My only complaint is I personally don't like a story that doesn't tie up loose ends.I didn't like just how the story ended.Where was the Epilogue?For me there were so many unanswered questions left  like ...
 
Was Queen Mary involved in the plot to kill her husband?
 
Was Lord Bothwell part of a plot to murder Darnley or did he do the deed himself ?
 
And so forth.....
 
We can come to our own conclusions of what happened  but, the stories plot left more questions than answers and I do not like that.
 
This ended up to be the third book in this series and I will most definitely reading book one and two to get caught up. 
 
A nice historical romance to pass the time.

At the age of nine my lifelong ambition was to own a horse and write a book. I've published 19 books but have yet to own a horse. Three kids, one dog and one husband are enough for me right now.

My dream is to retire to St. Maarten, or some equivalent place with white sand and turquoise water. Hopefully that dream won't go the way of the horse.

ki·net·ic en·er·gy
 
noun:
energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion.
 
 
Possession. Ines was meant to be mine. I’ve known since the moment I laid eyes on her.
 
Virtue. She makes me long for more. I want everything with her. Except, I know what we’re doing is wrong.
 
The lies I tell could break her—and yet, what exists between us has already been set into motion. 
 
I can’t stop it. My body. My heart. My god-forsaken soul—I’m hers.
 
***This is a standalone. It is a may-December, older man/younger woman... Taboo/forbidden Student-Teacher romance.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I will say that a story like this is challenging for me as the heart wars with my common sense and self preservation.Thomas risked so much for a girl he barely new and had me asking myself "Is he mad?" time and time again.The heart wants what the heart wants so the risks to them are nothing compared to what they will gain in the long run.True love prevails...
 
This is one of the hottest books I have read to date by this author.This author has become one of my auto buy and go to authors ever since I read her her Notorious Devils MC series as I loved each and everyone of them.
 
I always pick a favorite character but, this time around it just can't.I would have picked Thomas as I found him to be sweet kind,loving,affectionate but, with not being up front about his situation at home with Ines after he new he was in for the long haul with her he turned me right off . I was liking and disliking him all in the same breath.With Thomas and his secrets I never doubted he had genuine love and affection for Ines and that it truly was love at first sight for him.
 
For me this is the kind of story that you can't help but love as the character's just draw you in and make you love them and it makes it even more endearing because of all the hardships that a couple like this needs to overcome just to be together and the sacrifices one is willing to make to be with the one you love. 
 
I kept having to remind myself that this is a fictional story because the age gap was a big deal for me and I kept thinking what the heck were you thinking Thomas to pursue and 18 year old innocent.If Ines had been 20 to his forty it probably shouldn't have bothered me so much but, this is just my upbringing showing through and Thomas and Ine's relationship really was all about love, caring,affection and were truly in love and if it wasn't and issue between them " who am I to judge?"You could not help but love them as it seemed they were just what the other needed.
 
I will say that the story kept me on edge the whole entire time as I was waiting for the shoe to drop the whole entire time.Holy hotness ! their sexual romps were super steamy and hot the kind that has a girl fanning herself.
Omg ! Hot Hot Hot !Their hot interludes in the professors office although hot tempted fate each and every time and had your heart pounding thinking is this it for them?Fanning and swoon worthy encounters!
 
Omg! What was up with Thomas's wife? She went from a totally uncaring wife to evil bitch in a blink of and eye and she is the character you live to hate lol.
 
Overall I loved it! I just love this authors style of writing as she draws you in with love-able characters and she writes super hot sexy books that we love each and every time not only that I love her as she takes the time to interact with her fans as much as she can and that makes me love her even more...
 
5 stars from us

Title: Mountain Manhattan
A Mountain Man in the Big City Novel
Author: Frankie Love
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 26, 2018


Blurb

❤️MOUNTAIN MANHATTAN❤️
 
❤️THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED, FULL-LENGTH, FRANKIE LOVE ROMANCE❤️
 
I work with my hands in the Colorado Rockies, forging metal into massive sculptures. I'm no Renaissance man--I'm simple--all I need is fresh air, solitude, and an honest day's work.

When I'm commissioned to install a piece of art in Central Park, I know the gig is too good to pass up. But the moment I arrive in Manhattan, where skyscrapers ruin the view, I'm longing for my cabin on the mountain.
 
Then I meet Mia and the Big Apple changes before my very eyes. This city girl is working the front desk of the Mid-Manhattan Hotel when I check in and I can't help but check her out. Dark hair, a laugh that fills the room, and curves that wind their way straight to my heart.
 
It starts as a whirlwind romance--but it quickly grinds to a halt. Mia's been given notice at her job and since she's raising her siblings in the hotel's basement--they need a place to live, too. Her life is complicated. And I don't do complicated.
 
I could survive in the wilderness for a long ass time--but I'm not lost in the woods. Right now, I'm trying to find my way out of this concrete jungle. Only trouble is, Mia is the detour I didn't see coming.
 
But she just might be the road that leads me home.

Series: Ancient Ink

Format: Digital eBook / Print

Digital ISBN: B076ZQP3MR

Synopsis:

 

Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.

 

Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.

 

Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions, and with his body.

 

Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.

Warmth blossomed beneath Katy’s skin, the all-too-vivid memory of how Priest’s muscles had felt beneath her palms and how his presence had enveloped her in a protective cocoon lifting to the height of her awareness.

And his scent. She pressed her knees together under the table and fought back a groan. She could still smell him on her. A mix of summer storm, leather and the deepest woods. Her voice came out softer, when she answered. Deep and husky. “That’s just attraction. A chemical response in the body.”

Jade grinned. “Is it?”

She’s mine.

The remembered words sluiced through her in the most exotic caress. Possessive at a level she both craved and railed against. She cleared her throat and laced her fingers together on the table, forcing a detached expression. “Priest said I was his before we left. What did he mean by that?”

Jade looked to Tate, a request for guidance without a word spoken.

Tate shook his head. “I can’t know for sure.”

“But you think you know.”

He hesitated, glanced at Alek as if gauging how well his temper was holding, then shifted his compassionate amber gaze back to Katy. “It’s not up to me to share. Priest will tell you.”

“But the way he acted…how he lost control,” Katy pressed. “Surely, you can see why I want answers.”

For the longest time, Tate merely studied her, consideration and concern marking his handsome features. “I do. It’s still something he should talk to you about, but I will tell you this.” He paused as though carefully considering his words, not just for her but for her brother who’d drawn scarily motionless beside her. “Of all the people who walk this Earth, there is no one safer than you.”

Dominion by Julie Hall Blitz & Giveaway



Dominion 
Julie Hall
(Life After, #3)
Publication date: March 19th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

After defeating the red dragon’s legion of bloodthirsty demons, Audrey can finally settle into the afterlife with the knowledge her family is safe. But her quest for a perfect existence shatters the moment Logan is kidnapped in an attempt to bend her to Satan’s will.
Audrey must now travel to the one place no hunter has ever ventured to save the man she loves . . . Hell.
Savage demons, desiccated corpses, life sucking zombie trees, and a land of death and rot await Audrey and her friends as they battle through the fiery realm.
But Logan’s freedom comes with a price . . . the destruction of Audrey’s happily ever after.
As Satan schemes for dominion over all the realms, Audrey learns that some acts may be beyond redemption.
EXCERPT:
We sat on his bed, tucked up against the headboard, Logan sitting with one knee bent and an outstretched leg, and me curled into a ball against his chest, practically cuddled on his lap.
When my tears were spent, I let out a shaky breath of air.
“Audrey, I can’t—” Logan’s voice caught on something. His head rested on top of mine. When he continued, his voice dropped an octave, thickened with emotion. “I can’t imagine what you went through down there. I’m so very sorry. I should never have bonded with you.”
I savored the warm thud of his heartbeat on my cheek for several seconds before what he’d said sunk in. The leakage from my eyes along with a bad case of the feels must have dulled my reactions.
I jerked to a sitting position to stare at him in disbelief—and anger. My face was crusted with the salt of dried tears. There was no doubt I was a hot mess and a half. But that was nothing compared to the mess he’d just spewed.
He reached for me again, but I put a hand up to ward off his movements and curled my upper lip.
Where to even start?
“What I went through? Are you insane?” His gaze jumped around my face as if he couldn’t decide on a safe place to land. “Logan, I actually felt an echo of what you went through. I even experienced some of it in a dream or a weird out of body experience where I was you. What I went through was nothing.”
He opened his mouth to speak, but I slashed a hand through the air to stop him. “Nothing compared to what had been done to you. You were torn to shreds. Literally, in some spots.”
His face paled. I shouldn’t have gone there and instantly regretted bringing it up—but I couldn’t handle his concern for me when he had been tortured. We’d get to the “should never have bonded with you” comment next.
“You experienced some of . . . of what I went through?” he asked.
Shoot, I gave him another reason to beat himself up. Rookie mistake. “Never mind about that. And what’s this business about regretting bonding with me? Frankly, that’s kind of—hey!”
He grabbed my upper arms and held me still as I tried to push away even farther. His blue eyes flashed, and his face was hard as stone. “If bonding with you caused you to feel even a second of what I endured in that place, then yes, it’s something I deeply regret and would do anything to take back.”
Buried under the caveman response was something sweet, but I wasn’t feeling it.
“Argh. You . . .” I pointed a finger at his face. “You just . . .”
As I sputtered to find the right words, the corners of Logan’s lips just barely tipped up. I stopped talking when I spotted his involuntary reaction. Of course I’d find a guy who thought it was cute when I got mad. Actually, that was probably pretty lucky considering I did tend to have a short fuse.
I pressed my lips together and narrowed my eyelids before performing another visual sweep of his body.
Yep, he looked to be relatively healthy.
I launched myself at him and grabbed the sides of his face, and then I planted my lips right over his. Just like the first time I’d surprised him with a kiss, he was momentarily stunned.
I gently but firmly bit down on his full bottom lip in a silent demand for him to get with the program. Then I pulled back a fraction, just far enough that my lips grazed his when I spoke. “Less talking, more kissing.”
I’d gone to Hell and back for this guy. I wanted to collect my reward . . . with interest.
