Cover Reveal: CONVICTION by Lesley Jones

Conviction Cover

 

Synopsis: She was mine. Our love unquestioned. Our futures planned. But she didn’t show. All that we had, all that we meant, and after all that was said, she just didn’t show. That one act by her changed everything, but it especially changed me and from that moment on, there was no going back. No words of love, no whispered promises, just sex and drugs and rock and roll. No one gets a piece of Reed, but what they will get is the night of their life, the chance to let go, break their own rules and enjoy the best, the
dirtiest, filthiest sex ever… Along with the other four people in my bed.

I thought he loved me, I believed everything he said, every promise that he made but then, when I needed him more than I’d needed anyone in my life, when I was at my most vulnerable, he let me down. He chose to take a different path and leave me to pick up the pieces of my now broken life. I was changed forever and chose the easy option, letting others take charge of my destiny, until once again,

I’m let down in the cruelest of ways.

Dirty filthy sex.

Love.

Heartbreak.

Betrayal.

High emotion.

And a bit more sex.

About Lesley Jones

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne, Australia. It’s a whole new way of life for us down here, we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.

As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football…The round ball version. I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work. I am also rather partial to a glass… or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.

Book Review: Someone Like Her by Sandra Owens

 

 

Known to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan has yet to meet a woman he didn’t like. There is one though who sets his heart to racing in a way the others don’t. She is off-limits, however, and his boss—her brother—has made that crystal clear.

Troubled by a childhood that still haunts her, Maria Kincaid goes searching for a father she’s never met—and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake.

Jake, a man who believes he isn’t capable of committing to one woman, knows he should stay as far away from Maria as possible. She’s in trouble though and he’ll just lend a hand, then return to his life as Romeo.

As Jake soon learns, some things are easier said than done.

 

I loved Crazy For Her so when I got the chance to read Someone Like Her I jumped on it.What I enjoyed the most about this book was Maria’s take charge attitude. She gets in the middle of things to get things done. It’s nice to have a heroine that doesn’t like to just sit back and let things happen.What girl wouldn’t love an ex-Navy Seal following her around? I know I sure wouldn’t mind (said the happily married woman!). Jake is a sexy hero with commitment issues. The guy has gotten a bad rap for being known as a “player” but sometimes the right girl needs to come along to stop those ways. Who cares that she’s the boss’ sister. :)If  you’re looking for a book with a great characters, great plot, suspense with hot steamy scenes; this is the book for you.

Book Review: Julie’s Butterfly by Greta Milán

Synopsis: When beautiful Julietta meets aloof, handsome photographer Bastian, she immediately feels butterflies in her stomach.

But Bastian has a secret: Since birth, he has suffered from a very rare skin disorder that makes him exceptionally prone to injury. His life is riddled with pain and rejection; his thoughts are dominated by self-doubt and mistrust.

Julie wants to help him shake loose his inhibitions and open up to her, but can she reach deep enough to truly understand his suffering?

JB

My Thoughts: This book consumed me. It made me stop and think. It’s not a typical romance but something so much more. This story is about a man, Bastian trying to live his life without having the stares and comments affect him. He is barely existing until he meets the vibrant Julietta. She wants to help Bastian by using her love for him but years of self doubt and mistrust makes their relationship anything but easy. Add some controlling parents and spunky best friend and you have a great read.

I had never heard of the skin disease Epidermolysis bullosa and the descriptions in the book give a clear picture of how living with this disease could be very difficult. To learn more about the butterfly children click here.

Cover Reveal: FORBIDDEN NIGHTS by Lauren Blakely

It’s here! The cover for Lauren Blakely’s next title in her Seductive Nights Series, FORBIDDEN NIGHTS, is here and it’s a beauty! We are thrilled to get to share it with you today. But first, we want to share just a little bit about Lauren Blakely and a taste of FORBIDDEN NIGHTS with you.

Lauren Blakely is well known for writing sexy, heartfelt and humorous contemporary romance as well as deeply emotional new adult stories — one commonality in all her books is the scorching hot sexy times. And this book is absolutely no different! Nate Harper and Casey Sullivan have some thrilling moments together.

And… we have a surprise for you!

FORBIDDEN NIGHTS will release on February 17th!

That’s a full month earlier than originally planned!  So you will get to experience Nate and Casey and all of their sexy and heartfelt moments together even sooner! Still dying to get your hands on this smoking couple? Here’s a little taste for you from Lauren Blakely:

“Just relax and let me lead,” he said, whispering in her ear, a waft of her citrus scent drifting by his nostrils. She shivered briefly against him, and that nearly did him in. He stayed strong, swaying gently, guiding her in slow, sensuous moves. “I’ll show you how to let go, but you have to trust me. And that’s where it starts. I can show you how good it will feel when you give up control.”

She breathed in sharply, like she was acclimating to new air on a distant planet. “Why do men like a woman to give up a control? What is it about the lack of control that men like so much?”

“It’s not that they like a lack of control. They want a woman who wants to give herself to him. He wants a woman to melt into his arms, to get aroused from a kiss on the back of her neck,” he said, and traced a fingertip gently under her hair, watching her reaction as she drew in a breath. “It’s the hand on her arm,” he said, now trailing his fingers down her bare skin to her elbow as he leaned in to whisper. “Or warm breath near her ear.” She gasped, and he kept going. “He wants a woman who’s so turned on, she’ll nearly beg for it. He wants her abandon. He wants to be the only one to make her feel that way.”

She parted her lips to speak, but he shushed her with his fingertip against her lips. God, he was so tempted to let her suck on his finger right now, to watch her simulate a blow job, to let her show him what she could do. But that would come later. He needed to kiss her first.

That is, after he teased her…

Are you as excited as we are about this book?!

And now, here’s the fabulous cover for FORBIDDEN NIGHTS!

FORBIDDEN NIGHTS by Lauren Blakely for cover revealCover created by Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations

ABOUT FORBIDDEN NIGHTS:

A smoldering and sensual standalone romance novel in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Seductive Nights Series by Lauren Blakely…

Sinfully sexy hotel CEO Nate Harper knows exactly how to please a woman. He’s equally skilled in keeping his heart safe from the kind of hurt his ex inflicted on him years ago. But one thing he’s not so good at what-so-ever is getting his mind and all his dirty thoughts off the gorgeous, outgoing, and absolutely captivating Casey Sullivan, the new head of the Joy Delivered company.

They’ve been friends for years now, and Casey trusts Nate completely. So it makes perfect sense to her to ask him for hands-on guidance when she finds herself in need of some of his romantic expertise.

The trouble is, his heart may be signing up for more than it bargained for when he agrees to help her learn to abandon her need for control in the bedroom. Because as she experiences what it means to let go, he’ll start to experience what it means to feel again…

But what happens when all those forbidden nights turn into a deeper connection that’s much more than either bargained for?

*FORBIDDEN NIGHTS is a standalone full-length novel in the bestselling SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS series following the love affair of Nate and Casey. You can read it on its own, but you would likely enjoy the other books too.*

SOMEONE LIKE HER by Sandra Owens Release Day Blitz

 

Someone Like Her
by Sandra Owens
Series: K2 Team, #2
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 6, 2015

 

 

Known to the K2 Special Services team as Romeo, ex-Navy SEAL Jake Buchanan has yet to meet a woman he didn’t like. There is one though who sets his heart to racing in a way the others don’t. She is off-limits, however, and his boss—her brother—has made that crystal clear.

Troubled by a childhood that still haunts her, Maria Kincaid goes searching for a father she’s never met—and stumbles into a nightmarish experience. With her life in grave danger, she reaches out to Jake.

Jake, a man who believes he isn’t capable of committing to one woman, knows he should stay as far away from Maria as possible. She’s in trouble though and he’ll just lend a hand, then return to his life as Romeo.

As Jake soon learns, some things are easier said than done.

 

Middle-of-the-night phone calls weren’t unusual. Long accustomed to awakening at odd hours to all sorts of noises, Jake alertly reached for the receiver at the same time he eyed the clock. Had the operation gone wrong?

“Buchanan here.”

“Jake?”

Maria’s voice was the last one he expected. Just hearing it sent his heart into overdrive. He sat up, as if by doing so he could get closer to her. “What’s wrong?”

She laughed. “Why do you immediately assume something’s wrong?”

One hundred and ninety-three miles between them did nothing to conceal the brittle note of her laughter. “It’s two in the morning for one thing. You should be sleeping. Don’t you have an early class?”

Silence.

“Dammit, talk to me.”

“I’m in trouble, Jake.” Her voice cracked on his name.

For her, he would step in front of a bullet, but she wasn’t his to protect. She was so far off limits he might as well be wanting the moon.

He forced the words through his teeth that had to be said. “Then you should be calling your brother, not me.”

“I . . . I can’t talk to Logan right now. I just can’t. Please, you have to come.” The words were punctuated by a sob.

Jackson Kennedy Buchanan, in an attempt to be as honorable as his namesakes, opened his mouth to say no, not happening. “Are you home?” He pulled the phone from his ear and glared as if it were responsible for the decidedly inadvisable question. She’d probably had a fight with a boyfriend and needed a shoulder to cry on.

Maria Kincaid—top-of-her-class law student and weeks from graduating—didn’t get in trouble. Maria Kincaid, the woman her brother had put off limits by threat of death. The boss didn’t want his sister anywhere near a man known as Romeo to his SEAL buddies.

Hello 2015! What are you reading this year?

Happy 2015, Readers!

Let’s talk about our reading goals this year. What is your reading goal? How did you come up with your goal? What are you planning to read this year?

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 5.32.38 PM

My goal is to not have a goal this year. Say what!? I have decided to not have a reading goal. Last year I found myself at times not enjoying what I was reading due to a goal; so, I am opting out this year. I plan to read books for the joy of just reading them. If that means I only reading 50 books instead of a 100, then so be it

Happy 2015 and Happy Reading!
