What would you do if a five hundred year old witch
wanted to turn your body into her new home?
Morcant and Blake Korrigan own a little shop of
horrors, where witches congregate and people ending up dead isn’t rare. When
Karen Hiltzman joins their coven, she has no idea what she’s getting into.
Drawn in, the group convinces her to recruit her best friend, Sarah Matthews,
after discovering that she bears a very special birthmark; one that indicates
she’s the girl they’ve been waiting for.
Eager to reincarnate a witch put to death by an angry
mob five hundred years prior, Morcant unleashes a spell; a dark and sinister
curse. His ritual transforms Sarah’s body and will bring the dreaded Brenna
back to life when it’s completed. Blake wants to stop him; but will he be
strong enough to defeat his elder sibling, and if he does… will he be able to
let her go when it’s done?

Sarah felt foolish as soon as she stepped onto the bus, with the

eyes of the other passengers upon her; ‘I look like a hooker,’

she lamented. Not daring to sit down in the short skirt, lest she

give anyone a peep show, she stood and held onto the bar that

ran down the center aisle.

‘Of course, I can’t go home,’ her thoughts continue to turn. ‘I’ll

go to the bar and drink a coke. I can sit in a back corner and

hide for a couple of hours.’ She adjusted her grip nervously,

knowing it was a bad plan; ‘that’s the rule… we never go out

alone.’ It was dangerous to say the least, and images of all the

horrible ends she could come to haunted her.

Shaking off her ominous foreboding, she climbed down the

steps of the transport and listened to the click of her heels as

she strutted down the walk. Several of the men she passed

turned to watch her sway, and a devilish grin curled her lips;

‘come on, you like being bad.’ Arriving at her chosen spot, she

sauntered inside.

The club itself dimly lit, the music thumped loudly and vibrated

her organs as soon as she entered. Moving through the crowd,

she made her way to the bar, where she realized the doorman

had allowed her to pass unscathed. Having thought she would

have a coke, she heard herself mutter the word rum along with

it, and a few minutes later, she hovered next to a tall table at

the side of the dance floor, sipping the liquid through a tiny

straw.

About the time her drink needed to be refreshed, one of the

men who had been watching her sidled up and placed one

before her without saying a word. Her devious streak renewed,

she didn’t bother with the sipping, and hoisted the glass to

guzzle about half of it, before lowering it to give him a grin.

“You got a name?” she asked coyly.

“I’m not really into names,” he sneered, looking at the others

who were eyeing his target. Leaning closer so he could peer

down her cleavage, he noticed the silver amulet nestled there.

“You looking for a friend tonight?”

“Maybe,” she swirled her icy beverage, then finished it off. “Are

you a friend?” she cut her eyes up at him and blinked a few

times.

“Sure,” he took her hand, rubbing it roughly between his, “You

in the mood to dance, or find us some place outta the way?”

Giggling loudly, Sarah leaned forward, the alcohol clouding her

thoughts. When her face was within range, he met her, eagerly

exploring the inside of her mouth with his tongue. Deciding she

needed another, he pulled away, and waved at the waitress,

who produced more drinks for them while Sarah began to

wriggle around in time to the music.

“You don’t say much,” the girl screamed to be heard over the

thump of the sound system.

“I didn’t come here to talk,” he replied, putting his hand on her

hip and giving her a squeeze.

“What did you come here for?” she lay against him, placing her

words next to his ear.

Grinning, he didn’t back down, “I’m gonna take you out back

and fuck the hell out of you.”

Sarah burst into a loud laugh, “I’m not doing shit with you…

without knowing your name first.”

“Alright,” he pulled her against him, pressing his hardness

against her belly while his hand rode up the crack of her thinly

covered rear end, “I’m Chase.”

“Chase,” she repeated, feeling the bulge of him, and sliding her

hand around to right her skirt. “Stop that,” she said more softly,

and he kissed her instead, then put his fingers back where they

had been.

“Let’s go find some place a little more private,” he pulled her

along.

“I don’t know if I’m ready for that,” she snickered again.

“Oh, you’re ready,” he guided her through the crowd.

Roman Masterson makes his fortune by fixing celebrity problems for big money and by any means necessary. He is a foul-mouthed, bad-tempered, manwhore who doesn’t have the time or inclination to babysit a gullible little brat from the suburbs…until he unknowingly spots her in the middle of a crowded dance floor and decides right then and there to claim every one of her orgasms from that moment on. Little does he know that the woman he’s laid claim to is his…cousin.

Cousins Teaser 1

Excerpt

I hear a very clear and distinct set of heavy footsteps advancing towards us. Whoever it is, isn’t panicked like the rest of us. He or she (no it was definitely a he) is moving calmly and very deliberately towards our direction. I experience a brief moment of alien-like movement in my stomach warning me of something. I’m not sure what. Maybe to be on guard or perhaps to run. Suddenly I feel five very warm, strong, and calloused fingers grasp my upper left arm and pull me up on my feet.

“Stand up,” the deep voice orders with a rumble. His lips just inches away from my ear. His breath smells of peppermint, chocolate and cognac. A yummy mixture. It’s familiar. Reminds me of Christmas.

His distinctive voice reverberates throughout my body, from the top of my head to the tips of my toes, and then settles in as if making a home in between my legs. I’m shocked at my body’s reaction and frankly embarrassed. Typically I would never blindly follow the commands of a stranger, but this isn’t a usual circumstance I find myself in. So for once I decide not to over think things (like he may be a serial killer) and instead just follow his lead.

With his hand still firmly clasping my upper arm, he notices that my feet are unsteady and quickly adjusts himself to place his other hand loosely around my middle to balance me as I stand. His massive hand almost spans the entire length of my torso and although my clothing serves as a barrier, to me it feels like I have nothing on. His thumb nearly grazes my breast, which sends my nipples into a hard alert, while his pinky finger comes dangerously close to the waistband of my panties. I am so overwhelmed by all the sensations of him touching me, that my body probably feels heavy to him, as I inadvertently sway slightly forward and allow him to bear more of my weight. My heaviness doesn’t seem to be an issue though, as he effortlessly guides me upwards onto my feet with one sweeping movement.

“Easy.” He murmurs softly by my ear.

Even with all hell breaking loose in the club, that one word, the stranger’s raspy voice, and his unforgettable hands are all I can concentrate on. His touch feels personal, careful, and intimate, as if we already know each other or as if we are definitely about to. As he continues to direct me, his commands all of a sudden turn somewhat clipped, almost like he is annoyed with me for some unknown reason.

“She with you?”

“Yes.”

“Grab her hand too.”

“Wait I-” I start to protest. His terse tone throwing me off.

“Grab her.” He orders again.

As he continues to hold onto me, to help me keep my balance, I reach down to grab Sloan’s arms and lift her up with me. “Come on Sloan.”

“Walk.” Is all the stranger says next.

And we do.

I step outside the box again to enjoy a new author. Lisa Blakeney is a great writer. I was very pleased with her new read Cousins. You’re taken into a story of two people that are only related due to family members getting married.

Elizabeth is dealing and overcoming an attack in her apartment. Then she is left heartbroken after her boyfriend ups and leaves. Roman on the other hand is the one night stand guy, never giving more than one night of fun. He has grown up from when Elizabeth met him back when she was six years old and he play a very mean trick on her. Elizabeth is very strong willed, not taking crap for the most part from most people. Roman all alpha male, moody, knows what he wants and will get it one way or another.

Elizabeth and Roman light the pages up. You are going to be laughing at the banter that is exchanged between the two of them. They are ready to rip each other’s throats out one minute, and then they are ripping each other’s cloths of then next.  

It did take me a little time to get in to the story and really enjoy it. I am glad it gave it the few extra chapters because when this one takes off it takes off. Great story and the cliffhanger is the best! Looking forward to the next book in this series!!!

gunny-blog-tour-initial
gunnyecover
Shattered following a devastating betrayal that results in the death of his friends, Lane Robinson finds himself in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a world away from his previous life as a Marine. Robinson is trying to forget the past, but healing from the deadly deceit that cut blood deep is hard, and memories of that treachery taint every interaction in his life. He misses the comradery and bond he had with his brothers in arms, and now can’t help but view everyone around him with mistrust and suspicion.
Robinson meets a member of the Rebel Wayfarers motorcycle club, and with an introduction into the biker’s circle of friends, he finds that elusive sense of home that has been missing from his life for too long. Initiated into the club and now called Gunny, Robinson buries himself in his new life as a Rebel member.
 
Secure within his newfound family, Gunny fills his days with solitary work and finds he possesses a gift for motorcycle restoration, forming a career out of this exacting passion. Trying to leave behind the man he was before the club, unfortunately his feelings of cynicism aren’t so easy to set aside. Even within the club, surrounded by members he readily calls brother, he grants his trust to only a few. One of those is Davis Mason, national president, and a man he is proud to call friend.
Into this meticulously constructed life dances Sharon Elkins, the one woman who seems to possess the ability to tear down the walls he has spent so long building. She is the first person who sees beyond his surface façade, the first he’s let get close in so long…can he trust the emotions she stirs in his soul?
As she becomes an ever more important part of his world, darkness from their former lives collides in a dangerous cascade of conspiracy and schemes. Can he protect the woman he has come to love, and will they be able to fight their way clear of the chaos that threatens to entrap them?

SYNOPSIS
 
Fantasies – we all have them.
For some it’s their dream job; others want the wedding, the 2.5 kids, the white picket fence.
My fantasies are a bit more…depraved.
Dark and sinful, they have destroyed relationships and my livelihood, yet I still submit to them like a slave.
Sex.
For most, it’s a natural expression of love, caring, or lust.
But there are those of us who can’t stop once we’ve had a taste.
Those of us who don’t want to.
And the shame of that never-ending cycle will eat us alive…
My name is Evan James, and I am a sex addict.
Rondareviewpink
pink4pawstar

Evan is very intense. He has a need and craves sex like an alcoholic craves and needs alcohol. One night he meets his match so to say that one that he just can’t get out of his system. He craves her so much that he can’t get any relief from anyone but her. He has always been a one night kind of guy.

 

This was one book that I went in to not really knowing what it was about. I didn’t read the synopsis just seen the cover and thought it looked like a good one. I felt that there wasn’t enough story that was told of Evan it was focus a little too much on sex addiction for me. I prefer to have more background given in bits and pieces, like what lead him down this path, was there some event in his life that caused it; I don’t want all the info but just enough to keep me wanting to find out more.  Other than that I complete enjoy the story and the plot. The book is well written and has a great easy flow to it. I would recommend this book to someone that likes lots of sex action you’re going to get that with this book. I’m looking forward to reading they next book in the series.

EXCERPT
“Come here.”
Evan James crooked his finger at the blonde currently shimmying back into her minuscule, tight, black dress. The same one she’d worn last night that had called like a siren’s song to his cock in the middle of the dimly lit club.
She looked over at him with heavy-lidded eyes and held the barely there fabric still around her waist. His eyes zoomed in on the impressive breasts overflowing out of her sheer, black bra. Covered, but not enough.
His mouth watered, and he wanted to drag her back to the bed and take hold of her ripe nipple before pulling the fabric down and out of his way to take her fully into his mouth again.
After having had her so many times in the last few hours, she’d no doubt taste of him on every inch of her soft skin. He liked that. Before, she’d tasted faintly of vanilla musk—a fragrance he wasn’t overly fond of. He’d made quick, dirty work of her though, marking and leaving his scent on her with his lips, his sex, his come, and he figured one last go-round before sending her on her way would suppress his craving for at least a couple of days.
He hoped. His appetite was voracious.
“Can’t get enough, can you?” She leaned down over the edge of the bed and placed her hands there, giving him an ample view of what he wanted. Now.
He narrowed his eyes. “Don’t play with me.”
Blondie tsked and put her knees on the mattress, crawling on all fours toward him. “Oh, baby, I told you you’d never want me to leave once you got inside.”
She was right about that much. If he could live in pussy, he would. It was his weakness, his addiction, the one thing he’d give up anything and everything for. And he nearly had.

FAST TALK WITH ELLA AND BROOKE

1. 3 things you never leave home without?

Ella: Phone, wallet, keys

Brooke: A bottle of water, chapstick/lip gloss, and some form of communication

2. Name the last 3 books you have purchased.

Brooke: The King by Tiffany Reisz, Made by J.M. Darhower, and a signed copy of The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

Ella: A King Undone by Cooper Davis, Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead, and Sempre by J.M. Darhower

3. Your biggest pet peeve?

Ella: Being told to talk in a quieter voice. I get loud when excited. It takes away the fun when interrupted and told to speak softly. ~pouts~

Brooke: Most of mine have to do with people being glued to phones in public, whether it’s during a movie or live theatre, at dinner with friends, or while trying to have a one on one conversation. No one’s in the moment anymore.

4. Favorite male body part?

Brooke: Eyes, always. Can height be a body part too? Because I hate being taller than the guy all the time.

Ella: Nice, broad shoulders.

5. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Ella: No. I think you can find someone extremely attractive, but to love a person, I believe you need to know them.

Brooke: No way. To love someone, you need to love all of them, even the ugly parts they don’t want you to see. And at first sight, they definitely aren’t showing off those flaws.

6. Sex on the first date?

Brooke: For my friends? Absofuckinglutely. I love hearing about it afterward. 😉 But for me, probably not. I’m much shyer than I let on.

Ella: No. And not because I’m a prude, I just never have.

7. If you can be any fictional character for a day, who would you want to be?

Ella: Elizabeth Bennett on her wedding day (and night) to Mr. Darcy.

Brooke: Ohhh, good one, Ella. I’m gonna go total potternerd and say any character in Harry Potter. For the butter beer and magic spells, of course.

8. Write a short letter to Santa Claus and show us how it would like.

Brooke: Dear Santa, I’ve been really good for the last twenty minutes that I’ve been writing these answers, so let’s just focus on that, shall we? Ps – I’ll leave you dark chocolate bacon cupcakes instead of stale cookies this year if you put our book in everyone’s stockings.

Ella: Dear Santa, Just because my name made it to the top of the naughty list does not mean I participated in any kind of shenanigans. I was a good girl, I promise… well okay, maybe not promise, how about…I think? Love & kisses, Ella

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
About Brooke
You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
Her first solo novel, a romantic comedy, is due out in early 2015, but first, she thought she’d write a raunchy story with her best friend that would scar her conservative southern family for life.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.

Blood.

That’s the only memory he carries from a childhood he does not remember. And now it is all he knows. Blood is his life.

Knox Bishop has done a lot of horrible things, all at the command of the man who holds his leash. It’s a matter of loyalty for him. Allegiance to the man who saved his life when he was a child. So he goes where he is needed and does what he is told. He tortures. He kills. He kills. He tortures. It is an unrelenting cycle that he constantly craves and can never quite satisfy.

Until her.

Eighteen year old Lacey Barnes distributes her assets to fund her dreams. Medical school is the end game and she is determined to get there by any means necessary. But a family member’s careless mistake derails her plans and now she must pay a price in order to save him.

She goes to Knox willingly offering him the only valuable thing she has. Herself. In doing so he allows her into his world, a world filled with darkness but rather than being scared it intrigues her. It lures her, calls to something in her that she hadn’t known existed until he awakened it.

Every bit of his flaws is reflected in her and Knox will do anything to keep her in the darkness with him.

Review-hs

pink4pawstar

This is a story of a girl trying to pull herself up by her bootstraps. She takes a road most will never know and few would ever think to go.  Lacey is strong but weak. She is strong in the fact that she fights to survive and willing to put her all in it. She is weak do to the fact that she lets her family pull her in their downfalls. Knox, wow where to start other than to say he is dark very dark. He comes from a very rough life and even a rougher adulthood. Knox life is anything but normal. He keeps everyone away never letting anyone in or caring about anyone for that fact. Lacey and Knox cross paths and are drawn to each other. Neither of them knows what is really causing the connection; they just know something is there. 

This is a dark romance and not for the faint at heart. You need to go in to this one knowing this is not the normal light romance read. It took me a while to get in to the story. I don’t normal read dark romances but this one for some reason caught my eye. I’m happy I gave it a shot. It a good read. At first the telling of the two different people involved was a little confusing but ones they cross paths you understand why it was told the way it was and gives you a better understanding of what is making them tick.

Excerpt

Knox

I’m not what you would call normal. The word has no meaning to me. But I’ve been pretending to act normal. It’s something I’ve been practicing since I’ve been aware of the thrum and its significance in my life. I was seven when I first heard the lullaby. Second grade, just before recess. It happened in a squall. Nothing and then all at once. I remember everything about that day. The bell rang and the other children went to play. Not me. Never me. I always stayed behind, mostly by choice, but never contested because the other children thought I was weird. I think maybe they unconsciously knew that I was lacking something fundamental. Something they all had and I didn’t, and maybe even never had at all. Whatever it was, I was alienated, excluded from their games. But I couldn’t say it bothered me. I was indifferent to it. Katia would sometimes play with me. Yuri’s youngest daughter, my adoptive sister, kept me company when she wasn’t with her own friends. But she’d been home sick that day.

In the small classroom with its oversized, rainbow-colored letters hanging over the chalkboard and tiled number blocks littering the carpeted floor, I sat in the beanbag chair staring fixatedly at the class pet. Sweet Ms. Devon always stayed with me but she’d left for a moment. A moment to heat her lunch. A moment to speak to a fellow staff member in the teachers’ lounge. But it’d been a moment too long for me. The noise in my head had been too loud. The urge too strong. The pink-eyed little rabbit, Mr. Apples, and the yellow pair of scissors sitting blades down in Ms. Devon’s “Best Teacher” mug had been too much of a temptation for me to resist.

The pounding of my heart. The lullaby and the thrum. The latch had given way beneath my shaking fingers, soaked with apprehension and anticipation. The struggle. The frantic movement of something living, something warm, with the same accelerated heartbeat as mine grappling for life. Desperate for freedom even while knowing the inevitable hand of death loomed was intoxicating. The thrill, the excitement, the sweet seductive power. I swam in it. Like too much candy on Halloween. Too much ice cream in the summer. It had been a quick death for Mr. Apples. It had been crude. Amateurish. But ever so effective in quieting the discord of my mind.

Poor, sweet Ms. Devon came to find me on the floor of the overly-bright classroom. Huddled on the floor, covered in Mr. Apples. She’d been one to smile a lot. But I stole her smile that day and replaced it with horror instead. Her pretty features contorted like a Kabuki mask.
