**Blog Tour** This Time Around by C. Kaye

Book: This Time Around
Author: C. Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance


A Second Chance at Love…

Raef Alvero has been groomed his entire life to take over as CEO of Alvero & Alvero. He’s also spent his entire life trying to please his father…Even if that meant giving up the one woman he ever truly loved. Now fate has intervened. Raef is faced with handling the buyout  and closing down of a chain of hair salons…one in which Gemma works. Five years has passed since Raef decided to leave Gemma, but everything comes rushing back when he walks into the salon. All the pain, all the memories…all the love. And he knows he won’t let her go again. Not ever, no matter what else he has to give up.

Can be a dangerous thing.

Gemma Warren knew the salon franchise had been sold …but she never expected the new owner to show up at the shop –and she really never expected he would be the same 6 feet of seduction who left her heartbroken and pregnant 5 years ago. But what she’s feeling –aside from total shock – isn’t hatred. The feelings of love Raef left her with have just been buried deep in her heart ,and now that he’s back, keeping them secret from him will be as impossible as keeping their daughter a secret. With pictures of little Charlotte displayed all over the salon, Raef would know immediately he had a child. Then what…? Could he ever forgive Gemma for hiding her?
A second chance is all they need, some time to forgive, but there’s a sinister plan already set in motion—one that will threaten not only Raef and Gemma’s happiness, but the life of their little girl.

Our Review by Tara

"I sob as my heart breaks. I survived him leaving me once, but I don't know if I can survive it again. Why did I ever trust him?"

What do you do when the love of your life walks out the door?  Do you move on?  Or do what it takes to get them back?

"As I drift in and out of sleep, I know this will be another night filled with dreams of Raef. I tell myself I don’t love him anymore. My dreams tell me I do. "

Gemma and Raef were true loves,  soulmates. But one poor decision puts their relationship to an end.  Gemma held on to a secret that would have turned her relationship with Raef into something more. When Raef let Gemma go, it was all for his father. But when he runs into Gemma again, Raef can't hide the love he's kept inside all those years apart. Can these two lost loves trust each other once again, and let love lead the way. 

"We stand for a moment with inches between us as we stare into each other's eyes. I reach for him and he quickly grabs me, pulling me tightly into him. I feel the wetness of his tear against my cheek. We don't speak any words, we just hold each other. "

C. Kaye put a lot of love into this book, and it shows. Filled with emotion, and twists and turns, This Time Around has you rooting for true love!

**Cover Reveal** Jasmine: Kings of Guardian (Book 6) by Kris Michaels

Jasmine: Kings of Guardian Book 6 

by Kris Michaels 

Genre: Military Romance 


Book 6 in the series but all books can be read standalone


Jasmine King loved her chosen profession, until assigned as personal security to Chad Nelson. The sex-fueled country superstar was either a stone cold killer or the target of a deranged psychopath. Regardless, the self-absorbed bad boy was now hers to protect, and she’d be damned if she’d fail—despite the singer’s best efforts to expand her job into a more personal one.

One minute Chad’s the reigning king of country music and in the next, an FBI murder suspect—two murders, actually. As if that’s not bad enough, he’s in the cross-hairs of someone who wants him dead. The distraction of his gorgeous bodyguard couldn’t have come at a worse time.  He’s got a front row seat to the destruction of his wildly successful and carefully constructed life.

When the race to get him to safety reveals pursuit by not only Chad’s enemies but worse, Guardian’s, positions are reversed as the country star reaches back to a military past and helps free Jasmine from a bloody confrontation.  Jasmine realizes Chad is much more than his surface appearance. Perhaps he’s what she’s needed all along.

Divine Desire (The Lotus House Series)

by Audrey Carlan

Release Date: 27th December 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance
#divinedesire #audreycarlan


When veteran yoga instructor Mila Mercado was asked to attend a new class and report back to the studio, she had no idea that the over-confident, ruggedly sexy newbie Atlas Powers was going to teach more than just a very controversial and erotic form of yoga. 

New instructor Atlas Powers has two passions in life: his music career and steamy by-the-book Mila Mercado. He teaches yoga by day and works at his passion by night until the fiery woman walks into his class and gives the term desire a whole new dimension. 

In this wicked hot tale of love and lust, two struggling artists are trying to make their dreams come true. Only one thing gets in the way… until they stop fighting long enough to burn up the sheets and the yoga studio with a divine desire neither of them can avoid.

Our 5* Review

Divine Desire is HOT!!!!  I knew that Audrey could write hot, steamy books, but this book is off the charts!  The Mc's are so real and their desire for each other is undeniable! 

"I felt like a lunatic caveman, wanting to drag her out of here by her hair, while thumping any man with my homemade tree trunk club who dared to set his eyes on her."

Mia and Atlas both live by they're own rules. Their own fashion sense, their own love of the arts and their own idea of what love is. When their two worlds collide, Mia can no longer deny her feeling for Atlas, and Atlas will do whatever it takes to not let Mia escape back into her own world.  Can Mia and Atlas put their pasts behind them, and allow this new love to dazzle them?

"I loved looking at a man when he was hot for me. Nothing like it in the world. Knowing I had that power over them, to make something on their body positively strain to worship me. Beautiful."

I really enjoy Audrey's books. The use of yoga throughout the book is so fascinating.  Her knowledge and love of yoga and writing really shine through in all of her books, Divine Desire included!  I highly recommend reading Divine Desire and well, all of Audrey's books. 

"Something deeper than I’d experienced with any other woman, sexually or emotionally. I actually wanted more of her. I wanted everything she had to give. Wanted to make her mine for good."

Review by Kristie K.

Another gut-twisting instalment of the Steel Brothers Saga, Ms. Hardt has left me breathless once again…

Just when you think the story can’t get more intense, Ms. Hardt holds that carrot out just a little farther…and adds a cliff…and a few sharp rocks for good measure.  The story picks up where Possession left off, but now the focus is on Jonah Steel.  The oldest of the Steel children, Jonah (Joe) runs the beef side of the ranch, but feels the responsibility of the entire operation, as well as his siblings.  Joe has carried the guilt of his family's secret for 25 years…that fateful day a heavy weight on his heart, a weight he doesn’t feel he deserves to lose.  At his brother’s encouragement, Joe agrees to meet with Talon’s therapist, a gorgeous, leggy blonde that Jonah had met once before at a conference in Denver.  After seeing her again, though, Joe has more than just therapy on his mind.

Melanie Carmichael wonders every day if she is truly capable of helping the patients she treats everyday at her practice in Grand Junction.  With a tragedy of her own in her recent past, Melanie feels inadequate to help when Jonah Steel walks into her office for his first visit.  Ironically his deep sense of guilt resonates within her, as her own guilt eats at her from the inside out.  The attraction they feel for one another is immediate, and so palpable it is like an entity in itself each time they are together.  Though her body desperately wants Jonah, her mind keeps her from acting on it, insisting on keeping the boundaries their professional relationship requires.  When her own tragedy rears it’s head again, Melanie forgets all boundaries and runs straight into the arms of Jonah Steel.  The question is, can she forgive herself enough to let another person in, and can she help Jonah forgive himself?

Ms. Hardt has continued to weave her web in this installment, and the results are every bit as good…or perhaps better…than what we have seen so far.  With every answer, there is another question.  Every straightaway has another turn, and every bridge has a drop.  The storyline in Melt flowed freely, enveloping me in the story and making me turn another page.  The pace was quick, but steady, and the heat nearly singed the inner workings of my kindle.  The characters are every bit as relatable and easy to love as Talon and Jade from the first three books, with maybe a touch more rugged maturity.  As the pieces of their family mystery come together, other threats come to light.  Every move has a counter-move, and the resulting dance is breathtaking.  I absolutely love Joe and Melanie, and am seriously nursing a book hangover as I ponder what could possibly happen next.  The master of the cliffhanger, Ms. Hardt will keep me on edge, questions running through my mind until the next book releases.  Knowing I have to wait until February is a delicious torture…  A slow burn, indeed.
