What do you do when being with the man you love is forbidden?
You hide it.
Our relationship is secret, because he is my teacher.
For the next six months I have to pretend he is nothing more.
We sneak around like we are ashamed of how we feel.
We steal kisses or the touch of a hand when nobody is watching.
The problem is, somebody is always watching
And when things go wrong, they have the potential to ruin everything.
Lady Meredith Ann Merrick does not want to be tamed by a man.
Varian Morgan is a man no woman can resist.
Thrown together on a ship, will Varian’s charms conquer Meredith’s love of freedom?
Meredith is born at time when women have but two choices: marry or face social ruin. Determined to master her own fate when her father concocts a devious plan to force her into marriage; she takes matters into her own hands. She embarks on a foolhardy adventure to free herself from an impending marriage contract, only to find herself trapped by the mysterious and beguiling Varian Morgan.
Varian Morgan is a man of myth and legend. Known as much for his exploits with women, as for his for his piracy on the high seas; a vexing young girl, taken hostage in Cornwall, is no challenge for his prowess. When it becomes clear that she is hiding something from him, it only makes him more determined to ignore his desires and withhold from her the pleasures of his bed.
Trapped on a ship of men, the last thing Meredith anticipated was days at the mercy of a vile pirate crew and nights yearning for its captain.
When fierce arguments give way to fiery passion, is desire enough to make a girl determined to remain free of men, be willing captive in the bed of a sinister pirate, who is a master of seduction?

The picture was of a burning building in the background, with a very dirty, sweaty, and mad Sebastian standing beside a fire engine. The coat that protected his upper body from the high heat and flames was tossed down haphazardly at his feet. The bottom portion of his body was encased in the bunker gear, with the suspenders bisecting his t-shirt clad chest. His body was just covered in soot, with the sweat he was producing running freely down his chest, arms, and face. The look on his face was murderous, most likely from getting his picture snapped when he didn’t want it to be taken.
The caption underneath the photo read: Benton, Louisiana firefighter, Sebastian Mackenzie, rests after rescuing a man and his wife who lost their home to a fire late Saturday evening.
“Holy shit.” I whispered.
I didn’t know if it was the fact that Sebastian was a firefighter or the fact that I thought he was just a criminal. I’d automatically assumed he was bad when I’d seen the biker cut he’d worn each time I’d seen him. That hadn’t stopped my body from reacting to the man.
It surprised the ever-loving shit out of me that he actually had a legitimate job, instead of selling E and pot to teenagers. Of all the possibilities I’d pictured him doing, firefighting just wasn’t one of them. Who would’ve thought?
Especially how Luke carried on and on about him being a bad guy. Luke was full of shit.
“I’m going to beat him.” I declared as I started my Cutlass and headed back towards my house and my day off.
Lani Lynn Vale is a married mother of three living in the greatest state in the world, Texas. She is currently a student pursuing her bachelor’s degree in nursing.

BLP REVIEW ~ REBECCA
I am, unusually for me, torn while writing the review for this one.
There was so much that I liked but one niggle that spoilt my enjoyment.
You’re The Lights…
Sebastian had one rule.
No women on the back of his bike. Period.
The one time he broke that rule, he killed the woman that was carrying his child.
Then comes Baylee Roberts. She makes Sebastian want to break every single rule he’d ever implemented. Hell, but she even makes him consider that dreaded H word. A helmet.
Baylee Roberts innocently walked into her bathroom never expecting that she’d find a man in there. It is her bathroom after all, and she lives alone.
From the instant he placed his hat on her head to protect her from the sun, Baylee’s mind becomes filled with thoughts of a certain biker.
She really shouldn’t go there. There’s no telling what kind of dangerous things he does for The Dixie Wardens MC.
Nothing is ever as easy as it should be. Their relationship’s one of them.
Baylee’s brother is a cop. Baylee’s father is a cop. Which inevitably means that Baylee’s going to have certain hang-ups about being with a man like himself.
Sebastian has a lot on his plate with his busy job as a firefighter, a single father, and the vice president of The Dixie Wardens MC.
Not enough, though, to keep him away from Baylee.
When a series of arsons rattle their hometown and puts Sebastian’s life on the line, Baylee finally realizes the only fire Sebastian can’t put out is the one inside her heart.
This is not a gritty, angst ridden MC book. For me it’s a funny romance where the incredibly hot alpha male just happens to be in an MC (oh, and a firefighter as well, swoon!) but that’s its charm. Never having read Lani Lynn Vale before I have to say she writes funny, sassy heroines but with a real quality that makes them endearing. Baylee holds her own and gives as good as she gets but her clumsy factor makes her the ‘real girl’ who you could know, not just a character. Sebastian is just yummy, an alpha through and through, handsome, hot, single dad, firefighter, VP in his MC club – did I mention Swoon??!!??
The book is written from dual POV and I loved the little quotes at the start of each chapter.
Don’t fall in love with men and their devil penis magic. – Note to self.
This isn’t a bakery. I don’t sugarcoat shit. – Why Sebastian pisses Baylee off.
You flipped the bitch switch, so buckle up and enjoy the ride, asshole! – Text from Baylee to Sebastian
It’s better to lose a lover than to love a loser, asshole, bastard, lying, son of a cock whore. – Life lesson.
The inventive swearing and the humour made this a quick, easy romp of a book – add in the hotness factor and it’s a good coffee time book.
The author does have a way with a story and I enjoyed it but my niggle is the editing and that drove me demented. The tenses change on a regular basis and while I can let typos go, especially in an ARC, this spoilt it for me. Many will read and not notice, many will read and be able to overlook but I struggled with this.
Is it a good story? Yes
It’s funny and sweet and hot but it loses a star for the editing ~ I can’t be honest in my thoughts and not comment on that……

SYNOPSISAshlyn Murphy was not living the dream.
Twenty-seven years old, college educated, up to her eyeballs in debt and yet
she’d been relegated to pouring beers at a local bar. She desperately needed an

Well, almost anything.Dan Evans, Rock Star was NOT one of those things. In fact she
despised him. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.
Dan Evans, bass player of international rock band Power Station had it all.
He was rich, travelled the world, played to millions of adoring fans and had no shortage of
beautiful women willing to share his bed. He didn’t need a moody redheaded
knockout with a superiority complex complicating his life. Or did he?
When two people who couldn’t be more opposite cross paths, it’s bound to be explosive;
sometimes all you can do is sit back and enjoy the show.
BLP REVIEW ~ Rebecca
Nothing else to say.
HOW the hell did I not read T Gephart before?????
I’m lying of course because, as usual, I have something to say! But I am scratching my head this morning wondering how on earth I missed her. I started this yesterday but stayed up until the early hours of this morning to finish it. One hit, I could not put it down. I’ve been a little bored and jaded lately when reading rockers, bikers and billionaires because the whole bloody market is so over saturated, quantity of choice but not always so much quality so to come across not only a book that was such addictive reading when I had no expectations at all was a surprise, for it to be a rocker book just shows its calibre, this is going to be a favourite without doubt. The book and the author.
So what’s it all about?
Ashlyn Murphy was not living the dream. Twenty-seven years old, college educated, up to her eyeballs in debt and yet she’d been relegated to pouring beers at a local bar. She desperately needed an out and was willing to do anything to get back into the corporate world. Well, almost anything. Dan Evans, Rock Star was NOT one of those things. In fact she despised him. Apparently he didn’t get the memo.
Dan Evans, bass player of international rock band Power Station had it all. He was rich, travelled the world, played to millions of adoring fans and had no shortage of beautiful women willing to share his bed. He didn’t need a moody redheaded knockout with a superiority complex complicating his life. Or did he?
When two people who couldn’t be more opposite cross paths, it’s bound to be explosive; sometimes all you can do is sit back and enjoy the show.
And what a show it is.
Ashlyn is just bloody fabulous. Sassy smartass who takes no shit off Dan from their very first meeting. She’s the type of female lead I love reading but don’t always find. A clever girl with a life plan mapped out that includes a career on Wall Street but not a rude crude rock god with a huge ego (amongst other things!). Ash is a redhead with the temperament to match and I adored her.
Dan, well where the fuck do you start with Dan? Actually probably with just that, a fuck, he’s a total unapologetic manwhore who loves life, women and music not necessarily in that order! He lives his life his way, full on and enjoying every second of it. His dirty mouth is a joy to behold, whether he’s being a suggestive git with the innuendos and dirty talk or whether he’s in bed and using it for other things!
From the moment they meet the pull and push between them is fascinating, funny and frustrating (from Dan`s point of view anyway!).
“I hate you.”
I leaned in and whispered, “No, you don’t. You’re just mad ‘cause I make your panties wet.”
“You disgust me!” She pushed against my chest.
“And yet, you still want to sleep with me, don’t you?”
“What? No. Are you insane? I don’t want to sleep with you. Not every woman wants to sleep with you.”
“Maybe that’s true, but you do.”
“You…you…ugh!” She opened her mouth and shut it, wordless.
“It’s okay, sweetheart, don’t fight it. I promise it will be good for you.”
Dan goes after whatever he wants whenever he wants it but Ashlyn is a far more controlled person who has worked too hard to go off plan and lose focus for a fling with a rock star, yet the more she sees and spends time with him the harder it is to keep sight of that plan.
It was the ultimate tease pic: no face, just sculptured, masculine skin. It was raw and unfiltered, just like him.
Life isn’t about the perfect plan. It’s about the perfect storm that engulfs you when you’re busy living it.
When these two people and worlds collide it makes for a story that I devoured because the author spins it that well, it made a tired genre come alive for me again in a way only Olivia Cunning or Samantha Towle usually do. If you are an avid reader then you know the feeling, “I’ll just finish that next chapter, I must go to bed but maybe just a little more, oh fuck it I need to finish and know what happens, who needs sleep”. This is a little gem that I enjoyed, gorged on in one hit. ……..
And having checked on Amazon I discover this is a spin off from her other books, epic fail on my part.
And well done to #RARE14 Edinburgh because that book signing introduced me to the names T Gephart and Lesley Jones and both are bloody amazing.
The Lexi Series –
While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US.

She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.
Book Four in the Reaper’s MC Series
As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese “Picnic” Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he’d never love another woman. And with two daughters to raise and a club to manage, that was just fine with him. These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy—he definitely doesn’t want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong.
Too bad he’s completely obsessed with her.
Besides running her own business, London’s got her junkie cousin’s daughter to look after—a more reckless than average eighteen-year-old. Sure she’s attracted to the Reapers’ president, but she’s not stupid. Reese Hayes is a criminal and a thug. But when her young cousin gets caught up with a ruthless drug cartel, Reese might be the only man who can help her. Now London has to make the hardest decision of her life—how far will she go to save her family?
I shuddered, and shook my head, burying my face in his shoulder as he started working my clit harder. My hips twisted over his, grinding his cock down hard as the tension built inside me.
“Ladies first,” he whispered, then used his hand on my ass to lift me just enough for him to shove three fingers down deep inside. Holy crap. I don’t know how he pulled it off logistically and I didn’t care. All that mattered was the way he filled me up and ground down on my clit at the same time. My heart was beating too fast and I felt dizzy with need and desire and pleasure that wound so tight I thought I might explode. Oh, God… please explode! Then it hit and I bit his shoulder so I wouldn’t scream, waves of ecstasy shattering me. My body went limp over his, and he pulled the hand that’d tortured me free. Then it was at my mouth, pushing inside until I tasted myself all over him as he gripped my jaw in a soft but firm hold.
“You ready to suck my cock?”
I nodded so fast it made me dizzy. Then I slithered down his body, ripping at his jeans and pulling his belt free. He lifted his hips to help me, his erection springing free to slap up against his belly. I’d seen it before, of course, but never quite this close and personal. We hadn’t had a normal courtship, and I realized with a shock that we’d only had sex three times, total. Wow. Felt like so much more than that.
A little frission of excitement raced up my spine – there was so much more about him I couldn’t wait to learn. I giggled, giddy and he grinned down at me, wrapping his fingers tight into my hair.
“I feel like a kid when I’m with you.”
“I do, too,” I whispered back.
