You Own Me

You Own Me

by Shiloh Walker 

It had always been her…

Ten years had passed since the doors slammed shut behind Decker Calhoun, taking away his freedom, but more importantly, locking him away from Elizabeth Waters, the only woman he’d ever loved—the woman he’d given up everything for.

The day he was sentenced, he’d looked at her and said, No regrets, Lizzie. But he lied, because he did have one. Although he’s been out of jail for three years now, he was a year too late. Lizzie never knew how he felt and just months before he was released, she found somebody else and it’s too late.

Or maybe not. It seems that Lizzie’s boyfriend wants an open relationship and two can play at that game. Now all Decker has to do is convince Lizzie that he’s the better man…and has been all along.







Shiloh Walker has been writing since she was a kid… she fell in love with vampires with the book Bunnicula and has worked her way up to the more…ah… serious vampire stories. She loves reading and writing anything paranormal, anything fantasy, but most all anything romantic. Once upon a time, she worked as a nurse, but now she writes full time and lives with her family in the Midwest. She also writes under the pen name J.C. Daniels.





In the world of contemporary romance Shiloh Walker creates some of the best book boyfriends out there. Pure Alpha tendencies tempered with a vulnerability that melts you, of course smokin’ hot with skills in the bedroom doesn’t harm either.

Decker, for me, is on a par with those Rafferty Boys in Fragile and Broken – they are favourites of mine that I thought Ms Walker would never top, however, Mr Tall Tatted & Alpha Decker has snuck in there. It’s almost a backhanded compliment to give this book 4 stars not 5, the one and only reason for that is the length. This is a short sweet and steamy read well written but just not quite long enough.

The chemistry, history and friendship between Decker and Lizzie draws you in and doesn’t let go. They are best friends whose timing was never right and life, as it does, got in the way of. We all make our choices and take the consequences, for Decker and Lizzie this has made for a heart-warming, slow burning, smoking’ hot read with humour, chemistry, romance, lust and a hero you will devour as he endeavours to make their path one they take together.


Manday Hotties ~ KA Book Heroes


Morning lovelies, hope you all had a great weekend.

Rebecca and I were in London for a couple of days to attend a Mini Rock Chick event were we met Kristen Ashley.
What a lovely lady she is – was fab getting the chance to meet & chat with her….

We had a great afternoon and it was fab to get the chance to spend some time in the English capital with my BLP partner in crime before and after the Meet & Greet!!! 😉

Given what we were up to at the weekend, I thought that today’s post should be based around our images of some KA heroes  (well, to be honest, these are mostly Bex’s)  😀

Hope you like them!!

Do these fit in with your image for KA’s heroes? Let us know what you think.

Don’t forget to head over to the other blogs taking part in Felicity’s Hop this week.


Have a great Monday peeps and we’ll catch you back here next week for more Manday hotness!!!

Marked By The Vampire (Purgatory, #2)


New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden invites readers to a dark paranormal world… 

Vampires exist. So do werewolves. The creatures that you fear in the darkness? They’re all real. And the baddest of the paranormals…those who love to hurt humans…they’re sent to Purgatory, the only paranormal prison in the U.S.

His job is to stop the monsters.

Deadly forces are at work within Purgatory. The monsters are joining together—and their plans have to be stopped. FBI Agent Shane August, a very powerful vampire with a dark past, is sent into the prison on an undercover assignment. His job is to infiltrate the vampire clan, by any means necessary.

She wants to help the prisoners.

Dr. Olivia Maddox wants to find out just why certain paranormals go bad. What pushes some vampires over the edge? Why do some werewolves turn so savage? If she can understand the monsters, then Olivia thinks she can help them. When she gets permission to enter Purgatory, Olivia believes she is being given the research opportunity of a lifetime.

Olivia doesn’t realize that she’s walking straight into hell.

To survive, they have to rely on each other.

When the prisoners break loose, there is only one person—one vampire—who can protect her, but as Olivia and Shane fight the enemies that surround them, a dark and dangerous passion stirs to life between the doctor and the vamp. Shane realizes that Olivia is a woman carrying secrets—powerful, sinful secrets. Secrets that a man would kill to possess.

And Olivia realizes that—sometimes—you can’t control the beast inside of you. No matter how hard you try. Some passions can push you to the very limits of your control…and the growing lust that she feels for her vampire…it’s sending her racing right into a deadly storm of desire.

Welcome to Purgatory…a place that’s a real hell on earth…

Cynthia Eden is an automatic not even read the blurb one click when I want an easy hot alpha read, be it her contemporary or paranormal books. While to a certain extent you know what you’re going to get her writing is such that you just don’t care.

This new Purgatory Series has the best of both worlds – vamps and shifters which as a parawhore I love. Reading is always an escape and Cynthia Eden takes you to a world you half wish existed because, as violent and harsh as it may be, these men and their stories are the stuff that fills our dreams.

The Wolf Within (Purgatory 1) and Marked by the Vampire both have fabulous alpha male leads but unfortunately in both books their female partners I found sadly lacking. A little whiney, a little weak and needing a good shake to find their backbone! Despite the awesome yumminess that is Shane, and the usual hot chemistry and sex that you know will be delivered, this was tempered down by the annoying Olivia with her ‘damsel in distress but it’s ok I know my man will rescue me’ attitude. While we know he will I like a little self-preservation and strength in my heroines.

Don`t let my annoyance with Olivia put you off though because this is still a good read, just not her best. I will read the next instalment and am interested to see what happens with Connor as I do love a tortured werewolf!
