**Release Day** Single Submissive by Marilyn Lakewood

Book: Single Submissive

Author: Marilyn Lakewood

Genre: Dominant/submissive ménage romance

Release Date: 28th February



A television dating show? What sensible woman does that?

Desperate times force drastic measures as thirty-two-year-old Sophie Baxter searches for Mr. Right Dom. But for a shy submissive, five weeks on a reality show might be a bad decision. One decision is easy, however: the Dom she chooses won’t be an actor.

Dex Hampton… successful film actor, coveted bachelor, and England’s sexiest export, but for this mysterious, reserved Dominant, fame isn’t a goal. Finding the right submissive is his top priority, and he’ll do anything to get his girl.

Jake Sinclair’s golden good looks and rakish Aussie charm fuel his flourishing acting career. He does his own stunts and tackles life full on. He’s achieved everything he’s ever wanted, except finding the right submissive. When he sees Sophie, nothing will stop him from winning her. Not even the competition of his longtime friend and fellow Dominant, Dex Hampton.

As the entire world watches, two movie superstars compete for a beautiful submissive who is ready to yield in all ways but one: she will not have an actor as a Dom.

**Blog Tour** Life (Trinity Series #4) by Audrey Carlan

Life (Trinity Series #4)

by Audrey Carlan

Release Date 28th February 

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

#Life #TrinitySeries


Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold…but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.

Elijah is the last man in the entire world Maria should be with. He’s a dark, gritty, lawless bounty hunter—the exact opposite of the man she loved and lost, the man who gave up everything for her. Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He’s used to getting what he wants and he’s set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.

Time is not on Maria and Elijah’s side. There’s a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she’d have to face again. And this time, the stakes are life and death.
Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.


5 Star Review by Kristie K

Audrey Carlan has delivered another stunning example of heart-breaking loss, heart-stopping suspense, and decadent erotic heat…

Life is the next installment in the Trinity Series, a gripping tale of soul sisters, and the men that love them.  This story belongs to Maria De La Torre, a sinfully sensual creature with a dancers body, and the heart of a lioness.  Her history is littered with struggle, loss, fear, and redemption.  Through it all, Maria has held onto her heart, and she gives it all to those she loves and trusts.  On the heels of the terrifying and tragic kidnapping of her best friend and soul sister, Maria finds herself embattled anew with her own demons from the past.  When the grim reaper himself comes calling for her, she is thrust into the arms of the last man she should ever be with.  A force in and of himself, Elijah Redding set his sights on the delectable Ms. De La Torre the minute he set eyes on her.  When her life becomes endangered, Elijah will stop at nothing to protect her.  As the danger increases, the complicated relationship between Maria and Elijah also grows.  The heat sizzles between them, even as Maria tries diligently to keep her distance.  When Elijah finally breaks down her walls, will he take her heart with him?

Holy hell, this book was HOT!!  I read it in one day, and am currently suffering the worst book hangover I’ve had in a long while.  I can honestly say there was nothing about it that I didn’t like.  Maria is a super hot, sexy, sensual latina with an inner fire and sass that inspires greatness.  The type of woman that wars are fought over, and men lose their minds for.  The best part about her is that her heart is as beautiful, or even more so, than the package it comes in.  She is a strong woman, a survivor, and she loves with her whole heart and soul.  She feels deeply, hurts deeply, and loves with all she is.  The friendship she shares with her soul sisters is everything a person could ever want, and their love and bond is the stuff legends are made of.  Elijah is beyond sexy, with his dark hair and green eyes.  A body made for sin, and a heart and soul worth dying for.  The perfect alpha male, Elijah is strong and confident, smart and completely badass.  His protective instincts scream at him to take what is his, and protect it with everything he has.  And don’t even get me started on his softer side…dayum.  The heat and chemistry between these to is combustible, and when it finally blows…there goes the neighborhood.  I adored every character, including those that didn’t take center stage in this installment.  The plot and storyline were incredibly detailed and completely on point.  Both flawlessly executed and totally intense.  Ms. Carlan is immensely talented, a true artist at her craft, and an author that I plan to follow in every single aspect of her career.  Amazing.

**Blog Tour** Reminiscent Hearts by Rachel De Lune

Book: Reminiscent Hearts

Author: Rachel De Lune

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 14th February



A second chance love story.

Lily Hill was a good girl. Sweet, innocent, hardworking, with her whole life in front of her. And completely in love with Jake Stewart.

Jake was the ultimate bad boy, who screwed around and never played by the rules. He had his own secrets and demons, and for him, Lily was the light to his dark. He knew how Lily felt about him. It was the best un-kept secret between friends. But the one good thing he did was keep his hands off Lily. She’d never survive his deepest desires.

Or so he thought.

A lot can happen in five years.

Lives change. People change. But what about love?

At that moment, my feet refused to take me home. They were glued in place. Jake’s sad eyes locked with mine and I couldn’t look away. All I saw was a little boy who wanted to be like his older brother. His idle stare gave me the impression he wasn’t surprised by the greeting. Like he was resigned to it. His eyes didn’t let me go until the car sped off, and I could only make out the red tail lights. I never saw his dad again, but I saw plenty of his brother. Jake stayed close to him around school until he left to go to university.

We’ve been sort-of friends ever since. I never ask him about his family, and he never volunteers any information. It’s as if the evening never happened, yet it’s etched into my mind so deeply I always think about it when I see the harsher side to Jake. Those few moments had tied me to Jake, and although the tenuous threads may have frayed, they always make me go easy on him when I really should give up and never speak to him again.

“Have you got your essay finished?” I change the subject, wanting to get back to surer ground.
“Essay?” he asks, again looking for me to explain.

“You know, the one assigned last week comparing the multi-store model of memory and the working memory model?”

“Looks like I’ve got a piss-poor memory, huh.” He wiggles his eyebrows humorously, and I’m right back to loving him again.

I turn away and bury my head in my hands and try to balance out my own mood towards Jake. The lesson is over with no other wisecracks from Jake, and I head over to the other side of the school for my last lesson of the day.

“Hey, Lil, wait up,” Jake calls after me, and I freeze. He waits for the steady stream of students to thin around us before going any further. It’s my turn to look expectantly at him.

“So, you have a better offer for the weekend than what’s-her-name’s party?”

“No, I just don’t think it’s my thing.” I pull my books into my chest and inch my feet towards my next class. As much as I want to keep talking to Jake, I don’t want to be late. I keep my eyes away from his, not wanting to get trapped in them. It’s a constant hazard I’m susceptible to. I’m sure he can see everything I feel if he will only look a little harder at me. As no other guy in school has ever shown me any attention, I’m under no illusion the first one will be Jake Stewart. My feet start toward the science block. Jake walks beside me a little way. Sometimes, on the occasions when Jake was close to acting like a normal friend, I felt as if he was waiting to tell me something. It never transpired though and like all the other times, he peels away and turns back in the opposite direction. No ‘bye’ or ‘see you later’, but then, that isn’t Jake’s style.

Tammy's 5 ***** Bare Naked Stars Review 

Just Wow!!  Reminiscent Hearts stole my heart and soul.  It was such an amazing story.  I couldn’t put it down.  It was filled with love, lost, tragedy, second chances and so much more.
“My heart pounds a few times against my chest as Jake walks straight past me to speak to one of his friends.  “Hmm” I exhale quietly in disappointment.  Of course he walks past me. I never warrant a publilc display of friendship in front of his peers.”
Jake and Lily were friends from high school.  But the real kicker was they both really liked each other but would never admit it.  Jake was so afraid of hurting her or bringing her in his messed up world (as he saw it).  He never felt like he was good enough for her and hurt her on multiple occassions to protect her for falling for him.  Even though she fell hard and fast for him in high school.
“It’s always the same after I see Lily. I can’t get her out of my fucking head, and that does wonders for my piss-poor mood.”
Lily had the perfect little family.  Her life in high school was as perfect as it could be besides the guy she was madly in love with her never showed her any attention.  She always felt like she was never good enough for him.
After graduation they both went there separate ways but Lily kept trying to keep the friendship alive.  Eventually they lost contact and didn’t see each other for many years.
“My heart breaks for Jake, but I’ll make certain he doesn’t feel like he is missing anything from his life.”
Sometimes you think you have found the perfect love and things don’t go as planned..  I loved the twists and turns we saw unfold.  They will totally keep you on the edge of your seat and take you on a whirlwind ride that won’t let you stop reading the story till the very last page.
Lily has to be one of the strongest female characters I’ve read in a long time. She might have went down a dark path but she found her way again.  She showed her strength and found what she desired most out of life when it mattered most.
I absolutely loved the author telling it in past and present and dual points of views.  I think it totally made the story.  I loved hearing Jake’s point of view. 
The only thing I wish was that it didn’t end here.  But don’t we always want to read more and more?  I guess all great stories have to come to an end eventually. 

Rachel De Lune is an amazing author.  I’ve read several of her books and have loved them all.  Looking forward to reading many more of her books.

(Stay tuned for my review on book 2)

"These two men look like wolves, waiting, preying...and although my stomach is unsettled, the allure swarming around them is nearly undeniable. They are like the forbidden fruit. One bite may kill you, but how will you ever know until you taste it?"

Coming Up.... Book #2

**Cover Reveal** Incident of Magic by Patricia A. Knight and Kris Michaels

Book: Incident of Magic

Authors: Patricia A. Knight and Kris Micheals

Genre: M/M Crime Romance - Alternate Reality

Release Day: 1st March



Sold at the age of twelve to support his mother’s drug habit and rescued from a life on the streets by a cop, thirty-two-year old Tony Locke had had a brutal start in life. He’d risen to the position of homicide detective in the Everlight Police Department—a testament to his intelligence and driving ambition to help other victims of Everlight's prolific industry in sex and drugs. With his promotion to the hush-hush Interdimensional Task Force, he could broaden his reach—if he could just get along with his a-hole of a partner.

Leo Fortan labored under a soul-crushing burden of sacrifice, trapped in a lonely and rigid existence. Hand-picked from that existence and assigned to the Interdimensional Task Force, he thought his life had taken a turn for the better—until he met his partner, Tony Locke. Leo thought it probable they would kill each other.

For a man who thought love didn’t exist and a man who’d sacrificed everything for it, finding common ground may require more than an incident of magic.
