Congratulations Erica!

     
Know your enemy if you want to survive…
The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal. Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow.

The sight of him against the stone sparks a memory that makes my hands still. I laugh. “You know, it’s several moon cycles late, but we’re finally exactly where the entire city thought we were when we kept sneaking off.”

“I’m glad they’re finally right.” He runs his free hand up my bare thigh, his touch and his voice shaky, but it’s the wide-eyed disbelief on his face that makes my heart skip a beat. “I hoped, but I wasn’t sure it’d ever happen.”

I sit up straighter, flattening my palm against the center of his chest and watching him. “The way you’re looking at me, it seems like you’re still not sure it’s happening.”

“The good moments have been rare recently.” His hand slides over my hip and presses against the center of my lower back, drawing me down until his lips brush against mine before he whispers, “And this is unbelievably good.”

Book Review ~ I Knocked Him Out (Love at First Crime #2) by Jessica Frances




I Knocked Him Out
(Love at First Crime #2)
by Jessica Frances
Genre: Romantic Suspense

She knocked him out, so he knocked down her walls…

He has irritated me ever since we were kids.
He is overprotective.
Controlling.
A complete jerk.
So, I knocked him out.
It was an accident.
I felt terrible … mostly.
It changed things between us.
Life for us both got more complicated.
Add in a stalker who has decided to take an interest in me,
And suddenly our worlds are turned upside-down.
Can things really change between us so fast?
Or are we just making a bigger mess than what we started with?
I think that hit to the head might have knocked things loose for both of us.
Because, from the moment I knocked him out, we saw each other differently.
As some people say, there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.


Click HERE to add to Goodreads

I Knocked Him Out, the second book in the Love at First Crime series, was everything I expected plus so much more.  With the perfect combination of romance and suspense, this installment kept my interest throughout and was very difficult to put down for even a second.

I absolutely loved everything about this story, but I especially adored the main characters, Sasha and Declan.  They were just too cute with their back and forth banter and their denial for their feelings for one another was simply priceless.
“I know I’m not perfect, and I know this is mad, but a big part of me is wondering if I’ve been blind to what has been right in front of me all along.  And I know I’ll kick myself if I never get the chance to see.”

“When you knocked me out last week, I can’t say it changed how I felt, but I think it forced me to see you in a different light.  Strong, powerful, capable, and with one hell of a right hook.”

I Knocked Him Out can totally be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend checking out the first book, I Stole His Car, not only because it was awesome, but just so that you can get to know the background of the other characters in this book.

Jessica Frances is an amazing writer and her words seem to flow effortlessly across the pages.  With a well-written story, likeable characters, and a mixture of romance and suspense, you simply can’t go wrong by giving this book a try – and while you’re at it, pick up the whole series.  You will not regret it!

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway ~ THE BACHELOR CONTRACT (The Bachelors of Arizona Book 3) by Rachel Van Dyken




THE BACHELOR CONTRACT
The Bachelors of Arizona Book 3
by Rachel Van Dyken
(November 28, 2017; Forever Mass Market; $7.99)

A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The BetMatchmaker and Elite series!

She's everywhere.

Ex-wife.

Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.

And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things:

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.

He really was losing his F-ing mind.

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

It was Brant.
Always Brant.
Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.
God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.
The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.
It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.
It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.
Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.
Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.
Damn hope. Stupid hope.
 “He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.

by Rebecca Zanetti
Part of the BLOOD BROTHERS series.
November 14, 2017 | Trade paperback: $14.99 | eBook: $5.99 | ISBN: 978145559431

"TOP PICK! 4 1/2 stars! Zanetti proves that when it
comes to RS, she is in a class by herself!" RT Book Reviews
One year ago, Denver Jones blew up his life and left everything behind. To stay alive, he had no other choice. But now, when video footage of the woman he could never forget goes viral, begging for his help, he has no choice but to go to her. Her niece has been kidnapped and Denver and his blood brothers are the only people she can trust. 

But Denver isn't the only one watching that video. The deadly forces from his past see it too-and they'll use anything--and anyone--they can to lure Denver out of hiding to exact their revenge.

Twisted Truths, the third and final installment of the Blood Brothers Series, was everything I expected plus so much more. Ms. Zanetti totally hit it out of the park with this one and is by far my favorite of this outstanding trilogy.  I have been waiting it seems like forever for Denver and Noni’s story, and I must say that it was well worth the wait!  What an amazing book – in every way possible!  The story was absolutely compelling and from the very first sentence to the very last, it easily captivated my attention through its vivid and eloquently written details.

With its deliciously smoking hot sex scenes and enough twists and turns to make me dizzy, Twisted Truths had me turning each page in a frenzied pace needing to know how this story would turn out.  Ms. Zanetti definitely knows how to create some strong, seriously HOT alpha male characters that will have your heart racing a million miles an hour and swooning from all the sexiness that lies between these pages.  Along with all the hotness, there is some serious intense action that had me hanging on for dear life. 

If you are looking for a fast-paced, romantic suspense that totally engages your right from the start and is difficult to put down because you must find out what happens, then I highly recommend Twisted Truths.  Ms. Zanetti has produced an edge of your seat story that is beyond amazing and one that you will want to check out.  Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

5 stars

Slowly, numbly, she shrugged.  “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered.  But a killer?   Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it.  This guy was all edge—no romance.  “Am I in danger?”  Her voice quivered, but she had to know.
“Yes.”  He didn’t move.  Didn’t even seem to breathe.
She blinked.  Rapidly.  “From you?”
His eyes darkened.  “No.  The only thing I’m capable of breaking is your heart.”
Cold swam through her.  The arrogance.  “You think you broke my heart?”
His lip twisted.  “I know I did.”  His tone was low with what seemed like self-hatred.  Dark and raw.  “I’m sorry.”
Those words.  She’d needed those words and hadn’t realized how badly.  “Thank you,” she said, going on instinct.  “Then how am I in danger?”
“I’m in danger, and anybody close to me is free game for an enemy who will keep coming until I’m dead.  Until everything I care about, everything I dream about, is taken away and I want death.”  He looked back down at the computer, intensity pouring from him.
Whoa. Okay.  Denver didn’t have one bit of hysteria in him.  His words scared her, but curiosity still rose up.  “Who?”
“Irrelevant.  As soon as we get Talia back, you have to forget me.  Now.  Back to Richie.”
She could live forever, and she’d never forget him.  Not for one second had she been able to pretend he didn’t exist.  But he was right.  They had to find Talia, but he still needed to explain more.  She had a right to know everything.  “I have files on everything.”  She threw her pack at Denver, and he easily caught it before it smashed him in the face. 
He didn’t so much as frown.  “Thank you.”
She swallowed.  They were in the same room.  After a year of hurting for him, he was right there in solid form.  More than solid.  She hadn’t imagined his hard body or intense charisma.  He owned every room he walked into with no effort.  She’d never met anybody like him, and here he was.  Her body tingled, her heart ached, and her mind spun.  Yeah.  Denver was definitely there.  “What now?” she asked, her eyes gritty and her throat scratchy.
“I’ll do some research.”  Slowly, numbly, she shrugged.  “I knew you were dangerous and relentless in pursuing somebody,” she whispered.  But a killer?   Her search for him had held a romantic element, and she knew it.  This guy was all edge—no romance.  “Am I in danger?”  Her voice quivered, but she had to know.
“Yes.”  He didn’t move.  Didn’t even seem to breathe.

Cover Reveal: Right Kiss. Wrong Guy. by Natalie Decker

   
Welcome to the Cover Reveal for
Right Kiss. Wrong Guy. 
(Offsides #2) 
by Natalie Decker
presented by Swoon Romance!
Be on the lookout for this upcoming title!
 
What do you think of the cover?
     
 
You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.
But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.
A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."
Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.
Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed.
Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla's sister.
Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?
Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face. Juliet won't play his game.
Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.
Right Kiss. Wrong Guy.
