Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

Ruin wakes up on Earth knowing only one thing: to Judge and Execute.

As an Angel of Judgment with no memory of his origins and no ability to communicate, he binds molecularly with Isadore, the first human he comes into contact with.

In the fourth installment of the series, The Turning, Ruin must face his latest nightmare assignment: To judge and execute Isadore.

Waging war against Heaven and Hell, Ruin collides with a diabolical crossroad of unforseen fate, and the nightmare of good and evil that ensues sends him spiraling into a darkness that he doesn’t wish to escape.

The Ruin Series sizzles with sexual, spiritual, funny, and truly inspiring romance. The unique concept and premise of this series surpasses the tropes and norms unlike anything you’ve read before.

Bestselling Author, Lucian Bane, dominates his spin on the popular Paranormal Romance genre, quickly becoming one of the many masters that rock our beloved book world.

Excerpt 18+

“What are you doing?”

The hot need in Isadore’s raspy voice ignited the executing fire inside Ruin and he scooped her up in his arms and headed to the stairs with her. “I need… to love you.” His own desire stole his ability to think and speak as he made his way to her bed.

“Love me?” She held his face as he kissed her with more hunger than he’d ever felt.

“Yes,” he gasped, moving along her face, then jaw. “I need to love you… with all that I am. Right now.” He sucked hard on her neck and groaned when she pulled his hair and fought to get closer to him.

“Do it, yes, do it. I missed you.”

How long had they been apart? He wanted to ask but he needed to be buried inside her first, in every conceivable way. The assignment Caliber had programmed into him burned and gnawed over the left side of his chest. Or was that the agony of what he was assigned to do?

Ruin laid Isadore on the bed, gasping for air around the pressure in his being while stroking her face and yanking at her clothes. She fought with his shirt and with one desperate thought, he disintegrated it.

Their bodies came together in a hot fervor of moans and clawing, biting and sucking. With all the need inside him, he thrust into Isadore’s body, drowning her cries with his hungry mouth, growling and grinding without stop, until she screamed his name the way he craved her to– desperate, intense, mind blowing.

“I love you,” he gasped, keeping his body sealed hard and tight to hers, never wanting to let up or let go as he emptied himself into her.

She was his. He was hers. And nobody…not even God would take her from him. Caliber’s assignment to kill the woman he loved was a declaration of war.

Finding Parker Synopsis

“Life’s greatest treasures will never be held, purchased, or bartered for. They will only be felt.”

Parker Bale has is a gentlemen is all respects. After graduating college and beginning the exhausting search for a job, he’s offered employment, unlimited expenses, and a new BMW by an extremely wealthy eccentric stranger. His new job?

Finding a woman to love. Not a particular woman, but he must look in a particular place. And he must sign a contract. Eagerly, he signs the contract without reading it.

Victoria Fisker’s father died immediately after her birth. Her bed-ridden mother’s addiction to pain pills requires her to be at home every moment she isn’t working as a prep cook. She has never been in love, nor does she feel loved at home. She doesn’t particularly trust people, has no faith in the male species in general, and lives a quiet life keeping to herself.

When Parker meets Victoria, he’s immediately intrigued by her lack of interest in people and her comfort in being alone. Victoria, on the other hand, only recognizes Parker as being a male and believes therefore he can’t be trusted.

Finding Parker’s characters embark on a journey. A journey in which they soon realize they’re finding love where they least expect it. Love for friends, love for family which may not be blood related, and for that one person…

The one who gives you reason to believe for the first time love just may actually exist.

“We fear what we don’t understand, and we find serenity in what we’re incapable of understanding…”

“Having the ability to feel is the greatest gift God has ever given…”

“Ask yourself through the course of each day, if this were my last day on earth, would I do anything different?”

“Live every day as if you’re going to die at midnight…”

“The greatest rewards in life are provided to those who take the greatest risks…”

“One moment of unwelcomed silence is more disheartening than a lifetime of incessant screaming… And the silence deafens me…”

pink4.5pawstar

I was taken by the start of this book. There is a lot of mystery behind this story. Not sure where the story is going or what direction it might take. It pretty much stays this way and that make the draw to it that much more appeals to me. I did have a hang or two with the book nothing bad. It was more the way Scott was showing how Parker was in the writing, as he put it at one point Parker seemed to be like a textbook. Just the facts were given, nothing to draw you in to that moment that is taking place.

The greatest rewards in life are provided to those who take the greatest risks

 As Parker and Victoria get to know each other, Victoria pulls him out of this shell that he has been living in for the most part. She is one that takes the room by storm. You know she is perfect for parker. Kenton is very intriguing person not only being Parker boss but friend you don’t get to know much about him.  Kenton has a story but it’s going to be told a little at a time.

Life’s greatest treasures will never be held, purchased or bartered for. They will only be felt

Well written, the writing really pulls you in and gives you the feel of the characters.  This not being my typical choice of a book it was a very enjoyable read.

bc Excerpt Banner

She looked at him over her
shoulder. His blue eyes seared her with heat.
The intensity of his stare made
her shiver. Lifting one hand, he laid his
fingers against the blush of her cheek. Then he wrapped his arms around her from behind. He buried his
nose in her hair and let his wolf rumble in satisfaction. “I’m ready to show
you off at Julia’s whenever you are.”

“Let
me check my face and hair. It’ll only take a minute.” She returned a few
minutes later looking amazing.

Her
hair was pulled back in a fashionable messy bun. A single strand was left loose
to fall down the side of her face to the tip of her breast. He longed to follow
that strand to its destination, scrape his teeth against her nipple and inhale
her precious scent.

She
was without a doubt the most beautiful creature he’d ever seen in his life. Rose
placed her arms around his neck, and he relished how her warmth seeped into his
body.

“I
may have to change my mind, you look too good, and I’ll be forced to kill some
idiot who tries to dance with you.”

She
rolled her eyes at him and grabbed her purse. “Come on, Romeo, I’m ready for a
boat ride and a turn around the dance floor.”

Simon
held her hand as she got into the boat then jumped in and revved the motor.
“I’ll go slow so I don’t mess up your gorgeous hair.” He winked.

She
blew him a kiss and fluffed her hair dramatically.

Even
going slow it only took twenty minutes to reach the pier serving the bar. He
already heard the music and boisterous patrons. He cut the motor and helped her
exit safely; boats weren’t designed for high heels.

Rose
looked up and down the line of boat slips and shoreline. “Where’s her sign?”

“She
doesn’t have one. We’d rather random humans didn’t wonder in. Mates are more
than welcome, but the occasional human to happen upon the bar isn’t very well
received.”

He
led her to an open table. “I’ll get us drinks, would you like wine or a whiskey
Coke?”

“A
whiskey Coke sounds great.” Her eyes were bright with excitement as she checked
out the crowd.

He
squeezed into an open spot at the bar and waved over his cousin. “Julia! How
are you, cher?”

“Oh,
mon dieu! Simon, it’s so good to see you. I heard you found your mate.”

“I
did.” He gestured to their table. “Rose is seated right there, stop over if you
get a break.”

“Oh,
elle est de toute beauté. You’re a lucky man, cuz.”

“Don’t
I know it.” He grinned. “Can I get a Whiskey Coke and a beer?”

“Oui.”

He
turned his back to the bar to check on Rose. Simon’s breath caught as she
unconsciously moistened her lip with the tip of her pink tongue. That mouth was
made for sin, with its plush lower lip. He imagined her mouth doing wicked
things to a certain part of his anatomy. Blood thrummed in his veins.  Simon turned to inconspicuously adjust
himself, his faded jeans were suddenly way too tight. Her intoxicating scent of
coffee and cinnamon rolls licked at his groin even from across the room. He
wanted to rub himself all over her, saturating her with his scent whenever they
were in public. His wolf wouldn’t be satisfied until they were mated.

Gazing
at her across the room his blood surged, he imagined her naked on his bed, her
thighs parted in invitation. He lowered his head and tasted her passion. Loving
her long into the night, her excited cries entwining with his hoarse groans as
they made the bed shudder and shake. He shook his head. He really needed to get
control of his randy thoughts. This was date night and he would show her a good
time away from his bed for once. Down boy,
he snarled at his wolf. When he glanced at her again she was snickering and
shaking her head at him. He must be imagining loudly.

“Here
you go, no charge, and congratulations, Simon.” Julia rapped her knuckles on
the bar top before she turned her attention to making another customer’s drink.
She was very busy, so he left her to it. He’d barely taken his seat when the
band took the stage for another set. He stood and held his hand out to Rose.
“May I have this dance?”

“Why,
yes, you may,” she said playing along.

Simon
held her close enough to see the sparkles in her blue eyes. He loved the way
her gaze lit up when she was happy. But his wolf itched to see her eyes dazed
with passion as he made love to her, and then sated and sleepy afterwards. For
now holding her on the dance floor would do. Rose’s intoxicating fragrance
surrounded him, teasing his senses. He was in heaven.

He
cupped her cheek with a large, warm palm. “I’m so happy you moved into our
house, Rose. Having you in my arms makes me the luckiest man in the world.” The
moment she agreed to move to his house he’d called it their home. His glowing blue eyes regarded her with a tenderness
that made her breath hitch.

She
tightened her arms around his neck, urging his face closer to hers. “I didn’t
want to go back to Anna’s, to an empty bed anymore,” she told him. “If you
really plan to have me as your mate, it only made sense.”

“Just
say the word and I’m yours completely. Forever.” He smiled, then dipped his
head, kissed her deeply and nuzzled her.

About The Boys of Summer

It seemed only natural to nickname them the ‘Onslow Boys’. Every time they swaggered in the front door of the Onslow Hotel after a hard week’s work, their laughter was loud and genuine as they settled onto their bar stools. I peeked through the restaurant partition, a flimsy divider between my world and theirs. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw them, saw him … Toby Morrison.

Quiet seventeen-year-old Tess doesn’t relish the thought of a summertime job. She wants nothing more than to forget the past haunts of high school and have fun with her best friends before the dreaded Year Twelve begins.

To Tess, summer is when everything happens: riding bikes down to the lake, watching the fireworks at the Onslow Show and water bomb fights at the sweltering Sunday markets.

How did she let her friends talk her into working?

After first-shift disasters, rude, wealthy tourists and a taunting ex-boyfriend, Tess is convinced nothing good can come of working her summer away. However, Tess finds unlikely allies in a group of locals dubbed ‘The Onslow Boys’, who are old enough to drive cars, drink beer and not worry about curfews. Tess’s summer of working expands her world with a series of first times with new friends, forbidden love and heartbreaking chaos.

All with the one boy she has never been able to forget.

It will be a summer she will always remember.

Warning: sexual references, and occasional coarse language

 Complimentary Copy

Talk To Me, was a book that I was on the fence about. It was well written. What I had the problem with in my head was how much I like or didn’t like the book being written at more of an interview then a story being told. I get why the author wrote it this way it is supposed to be an interview with Finn, other than that I loved the book. I love the batter between Finn and Casey. Finn challenged Casey and would not let up. I’m looking forward to reading Just Listen. I love the story plot and Loved the cliffhanger!!!

Just a warning  there is a cliffhanger in Talk To Me, so if you don’t like them make sure you have Just Listen waiting in the wings to pick up and start reading.

Synopsisblue

*Caution: This story contains explicit sex scenes with an alpha hockey player … who gives an entirely new meaning to the term Body Checking. *

Finn Daley took the world by storm two years ago when he was drafted by the NHL. The young, handsome, high-scoring player quickly became a fan favorite. He had everything going for him: fame, fortune, a promising career, and his pick of women. But when he made an abrupt exit from the NHL last spring, everything changed and he’s been in hiding ever since.

Casey Scott plans to find out why.

After interning for free all summer at the top television station in the Twin Cities, Casey lands an on-air gig. Trouble is, the new role is Sports Girl—which means reporting from local bars and tailgating parties to create excitement for the hometown heroes. All while wearing tiny team jerseys that are so tight they leave little to the imagination.

But she has a plan. Uncover the biggest sports mystery of the decade, and she’ll be on her way. Question is, how far will she go to get the story?

Excerpt 

 

Casey

My eyes instantly zoomed in on his scar. It was the first thing I noticed.  A jagged line that began at the middle of his forehead and disappeared into his dark eyebrow.

It was him. There was no doubt. But he was in disguise.

Yes, he could hide everything else. His tight athletic body under ill-fitting sweats. His piercing gray eyes under a pair of dark sunglasses. His sculpted face (which, incidentally, should’ve belonged to a classic movie star rather than a hockey player) covered under a week’s worth of scruff.

His scar, however, was not meant to be hidden.

Finn Daley got that badge of honor in his first NHL game. It made a bloody mess of the ice, not to mention his beautiful mug. Somehow, on him, the scar worked.  A flaw to show he really was human.

Review To Come, due to publishing issues it was not released soon enough for the arc to be read and review written.

Synopsisblue

*Caution: Just Listen contains explicit sex scenes between an alpha hockey player trying to begin a new life and an ambitious reporter who will do just about anything to get her story … Conflict of Interest doesn’t even begin to describe the trouble these two get into.*


Aspiring reporter Casey Scott knows it was unethical to get involved with retired hockey star, Finn Daley, but she did it anyway. Happily. She also knows that she should tell him about her assignment, but she can’t seem to do it. No matter how many times she tries. With Finn, Casey experiences intimacy, pleasure, pain, comfort, and a strange sort of stability. Things she’s not yet willing to give up.

But when she finally uncovers his secret, the decision she has to make is harder than she ever imagined.

For Finn, his past, present, and future are colliding. And when he discovers the truth about the woman he’s grown to love, and the one he let get away, his world comes shattering down around him. With everything on the line, there’s only one person who can help. But is it too late?

Just Listen is the gripping conclusion of Finn and Casey’s story that began in Talk to Me.

Excerpt 

Finn

Casey’s face dropped the second the words left my lips. I hurt her.

Clare James is the author of steamy contemporary romance and new adult novels: BEFORE YOU GO, MORE and DIRTY LITTLE LIES. A former dancer, Clare still loves to get her groove on—mostly to work off her beloved cupcakes and red wine.

A fan of spunky women, gorgeous guys, and super-hot romance, Clare spends most of her time lost in books. She lives in Minneapolis with her two leading men—her husband and young son—and loves to hear from her fans.
