**Blog Tour** Confessions after Dark by Kahlen Aymes

Sparks Fly … Lines Blur…  Hearts Break
Alexander Avery is rich, powerful and the sexiest man Angeline Hemming has ever laid eyes on: a man like every woman dreams about.  Angel is not immune to his sensual and ruthless pursuit, and Alex is intoxicated by the beautiful doctor; overwhelmed with desire like he’s never known.
As one of Angel’s profiling cases gets more and more dangerous, Alex finds himself filled with unfamiliar panic and emotional turmoil; his need to protect her goes against Angel’s adamant insistence that she doesn’t need his help.  He isn’t a man to sit on the sidelines when the woman he’s obsessed with is threatened, so he takes control to protect her without telling her of his plans.
Angel’s fortitude is shaken when her stalker invades not only her personal life but also those close to her… even when that someone is as powerful and seemingly untouchable as Alexander Avery.  Professional ethics insist she keep the details or her work secret, even as their newfound closeness has her yearning to confide in him.   But, as Angel’s quest to protect her heart from Alex’s undeniable pull equals her need to keep him out of a dangerous situation, circumstances dictate a huge decision; which could have detrimental, and irreversible consequences for them both. 
When danger threatens and jealousy reaches the boiling point, lies will be told and secrets kept… Even with the best intentions and the most undeniable connection … the deepest of loves will be tested.

“Mmmmm… ” Alex murmured.  The sound of his voice begged her to push the door open further.  The smooth mahogany gave way beneath her trembling fingertips to reveal a lone figure sprawled face down on the bed.  
Angel’s breath left her lungs in a grateful rush as she leaned on the doorframe, hands reaching out to take her weight.  Relief washed through her.  He was here and he was alone.  God help her, that fact was just as important.  
The sheet was falling low on his waist, clinging precariously to the curve of his butt, the strong expanse of his shoulders presented to her below the dark hair.  It looked longer than she remembered, and she stood there, willing him to turn so she could see the lines of his face.  Her lips parted to call his name, but he stopped her by calling hers first.
“Angel, don’t do this.”
She gasped softly and moved to the side of the bed, crawling gently onto it to kneel beside him, her rear resting on her feet.  His scent surrounded her, a mixture of musky cologne and Alex.  The skin, molded over the strong contours of his back, fascinated her.  She wanted to touch, to feel the silken texture beneath her fingers, to run her nose down his spine, to taste the salty tang on her tongue.  
Angel was falling apart, her weakness overwhelming her.  Earlier, she’d fought ruthlessly, but now, she had no fight left.  With Alex, she wanted to surrender.  The truth of it was undeniable.
“What am I doing?” she asked softly, reaching out to smooth her hand over the back of his head and down the strong muscles of his back.  He was warm, a sharp contrast to her own skin, and the familiar electricity ran between his flesh and hers—tangible and alive.
Alex shifted, turning his head toward her.  He was still sleeping, his features soft in the dark blue glow of night.  “You deny us..." 

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.

Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!

When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.

It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.


Wendy’s 5* Review

The lovely Kahlen Aymes is a favourite author of mine, I adored The Remembrance Trilogy, but Angel After Dark and now Confessions After Dark are so different that it really shows her versatility as a writer.

Alexander Avery is rich, powerful and the sexiest man Angeline Hemming has ever laid eyes on: a man like every woman dreams about. Angel is not immune to his sensual and ruthless pursuit, and Alex is intoxicated by the beautiful doctor; overwhelmed with desire like he’s never known.

Now if that doesn't want to make you jump right in and meet these two, nothing will.

This is a story that evolves, from the playboy businessman and a friends with benefits relationship in to a passion neither of them can deny.  These believable characters made me want this to blossom in to love too, but they are both carrying doubts, can these be overcome?

It is more than just a love story though, Ms Aymes brings us mistrust, intrigue, suspicion and suspense which is done so well it will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout.

But we also can’t forget the pure sexual desire that these two have for each other and there are some super sexy moments.

I want these two to get their HEA, and I am eagerly awaiting book 3 in the hope they get it.

I wish I could tell you more, but no one wants spoilers, right?  So you’ll just have to take my word for it, that’s its fabulous and you have to buy it.

Fabulous series from Ms Aymes, Alex and Angel are becoming firm favourites with me, looking forward to After Dark #3

What are people saying
about the book so far??

A.D Ellis was born and raised in a small farming town in
southern Indiana. An avid reader from the time she learned to read, A.D. could
often be found curled up somewhere with her nose in a book. Most of her friends
were not such book enthusiasts which earned her a few snickers when she was
constantly reading.

A.D. had always dreamed of being a teacher. She earned her
degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University in 1999 and her
Master’s Degree from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003. A.D. has been teaching in the
inner city of Indianapolis for 15 years. While she’s taught several different
grades, fourth grade is her favorite. They are learning independence by 4th
grade, but most haven’t learned the attitude yet. A.D. loves teaching
fractions, variables, probability, and graphing in Math. She loves almost all
aspects of English Language Arts. Figurative language, theme, making
predictions, drawing conclusions, inference, context clues, making writing come
to life, A.D. loves it all! Her students may not be in agreement with that

A.D. met her husband in college in 1996 and they married in
June of 2000. A.D. lives in a south side suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana with
her husband and two school-aged children. When she’s not reading or writing
with music blaring, she can be found shopping at thrift stores, reading to her
children, and running.

A.D. had always pondered the idea of writing a book, but
until recently it was a far off dream. In today’s age of independently
published authors, A.D. decided to take a chance and try her hand at writing.
She has learned so much during this journey and is having a world of fun with

**Book Blitz* The Warblers Point Series by Meghan Quinn

Beers, Hens & Irishmen

Fiona O’Leary wants nothing more than to flee away from the
small town she grew up in, her three extremely over protective brothers, and
her Irish parents. But leaving Warblers Point is not that simple, especially when
she is the bar maid at the local pub she owns with her three brothers. After a
two year relationship with local Irishman, Murphy Ryan, sharing nothing but
each other’s beds, she realizes she wants more out of a relationship besides
sex. But somehow she keeps winding up in his arms wishing she could break away
but finds the task impossible when her family is head over heels in love of the
idea of Murphy and Fiona together. 

Booker Hall, world re-known director, finds himself living an empty and
unfulfilled life. The people around him are fake, narcissistic and only care
about his money. In an act of desperation he decides to enlist his sister for
some help, give himself a makeover and go to a place where no one would
recognize him. Never did he think he was going to fall in love with an
unsuspecting bar maid with whiskey colored eyes and an over-bearing

The minute Fiona lays eyes on Booker, she knows she is sunk. His devilish grin,
movie star looks and charming heart are hard to avoid and she constantly finds
herself gravitating toward him. The only bad thing about Booker is that he is a
tourist and living in a touristy town she has learned that getting involved
with a non-local only brings heartache. Instead of giving into Booker, she
finds herself debating which relationship is safer; an empty relationship but
fulfilling sex life with Murphy or a deep and meaningful relationship with
Booker that could only bring heartache. 

Beers, Hens and Irishmen dives into the complexity of Fiona’s love life, the
crazy antics of her three brothers, as well as her two overbearing and heavily
Irish speaking parents. Fists fly, hearts are broken, beer is guzzled and
deceit is formed amongst comrades while the O’Leary’s take over Warblers Point
in the search for love and what makes them happy.

Beers, Lies & Alibis

The Warblers Point series is back and it’s not all beers and
Irish accents this time, revenge is being sought after and Murphy and Sophie
won’t give up until they’re back on top.

After the embarrassing display of Liam and Finn fighting over NOT wanting
Sophie in her front yard, the gossip vine has made her to look like the town
tramp which she isn’t and it has not only affected her social life but her
business life as well and she only has the O’Leary boys to thank for it.

Murphy Ryan, hunky Irishman of Warblers Point, can’t stand the fact that he
lost his girl to pretty boy Booker James, aka The Sheila. After Murphy lost
Fiona, he realized he wants her back in his life because he believes they
belong together. He will do whatever it takes to make sure Fiona is back in his
arms and as far away from the California boy as possible.

Watch how Murphy and Sophie take it upon themselves to not only seek revenge
but get what they want at any cost, no matter who they hurt. The lives,
relationships and sanity of the O’Leary family are tested, questioned and
pushed to the brink in the second book of the Warblers Point Series: Beers,
Lies and Alibis.


“I’m not like every other tourist that walks through this town, believe me.” He was getting so sick of her comparing him to everyone else. He was not like everyone else. If he was, he wouldn’t be in some small town in Vermont searching for happiness. Almost everyone found happiness in a sunny fantastic place like Hollywood.  

She just shrugged his comment off, even though she had a hurt look on her face, from what he didn’t know. He knew his voice sounded a little harsh, but nothing to send such pain through those bourbon-colored eyes. Sensing he wanted to lighten the mood, she scanned him up and down. “That is quite the costume.” 

He countered, “Like you have room to talk.” He gave her the once-over as well, lingering a little too long on her breasts. “I thought I felt my jaw hit the ground when I first saw you. You look fucking hot. Excuse my language, but damn.” 

His comment made her finally succumb and deliver that gorgeous smile of hers. That was more like it, he thought.  

“I could say the same about you.” She fiddled with the buttons on his shirt that were too close to his southern region. “You know, there are buttons on this thing, you don’t have to have your shirt open like that.” 

He chuckled. “You know they make costumes that cover more of your girly bits.” 

“Touché,” she giggled. “Seriously though, where did you get that outfit? It looks familiar.” 

“Your mom, she insisted I wear a costume and this is what she came up with at the last minute and I can’t disappoint Mary Margaret; she controls my bacon portions.” 

She laughed hard at that one. “Yes, don’t want her skimping out on your bacon intake, heaven forbid.”  

“I’m telling you, she makes the best bacon I’ve ever had, and I’ve had plenty of bacon. I don’t know what she does, but it’s fantastic. She has now limited me to three pieces at breakfast. She said she didn’t want to be responsible for clogging my arteries.”

When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was
consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good
book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch, besides “The
Notebook” I made time to read the heartbreaking novel.

It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year
that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books, I came
across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven’t turned back

You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening
to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and
turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with

I am currently residing in beautiful Colorado Springs where
the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every
corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five,
four-legged children.

**Blog Tour** The Price of Love by Cassandra Roop

Two short months before graduating high school, Kendall Jones’ world is ripped apart at the seams. A stranger rescues her from a near brutal attack, but is unable to save her parents from death. Eight years later, Kendall moves to New York, hoping to put her past behind her, and once again finds herself in need of rescue. 

Tristan Price saves the life of a young woman, who then haunts his dreams for eight long years. When she literally falls at his feet, Tristan decides that he will protect her, no matter what the cost. When her past comes back to threaten her, his plan to keep her close could cost his heart. 

Can Tristan save Kendall a second time, and at what cost? Can the price of love overshadow the darkness of her past? 

Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a Standalone and has a HEA.

Cassy is a work at home mom where she spends her days surrounded by children running her in-home daycare. She loves to cook, read and spend her nights and weekends being a Les Mills group fitness instructor. She has been a lover of all things romance from a very early age. She hopes and dreams that everyone can receive their happy ever after. A good ol country girl at heart, she was born and raised in Arkansas and now resides in Charlottesville, Virginia with her husband and three young children.

Tara's 4 Bare Naked Stars Review****

From the very start of this book, Cassy takes us on a roller coaster ride full of emotion.  She shows us someone overcoming tragedy and how it can affect everybody’s lives.

Kendall is a high school student, who receives the worst news possible.  There has been a tragic death.  But this is not the first tragedy that Kendall has faced.  She has a secret that she has kept all to herself.   Kendall moves to New York after college to start a new life for herself.  It is here that she meets Tristan Price.  Hot and successful, Tristan is the whole package.  But Tristan has a secret of his own…and he needs to do everything to keep his secret away from Kendall.  

If she knew the real me, the real Tristan Price, she would never even give me the satisfaction of looking in my direction ever again.”

Kendall is assigned to work closely with Tristan on a project. By spending time together, will these two lost souls find comfort in each other, or will their secrets be too much to handle?

‘ “Just promise me you won’t close yourself off to the possibility of being with someone whether it is Tristan or someone else”

I enjoyed this book.  It was a touching story filled with many different emotions.    The way Cassy wrote each characters story, really made me feel what each of them were going through.  I would recommend this book.  I also look forward to reading more from Cassy Roop soon!!
