NEW RELEASE – Savage Hunger (Savage Trilogy #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Rick Savage, but they call him Savage and for a reason. He can make you laugh and then rip your heart out. No one knows that more than me, Candace Marks, the woman he left bleeding from the heart. I loved him. Lord help me, I’ve never stopped loving him.

Now, I’m engaged to another man, a brutal man I’m trapped into marrying, when to my shock, Savage returns home. Savage who I haven’t heard from in years. I want to hate him. I have ever reason to hate him, but I can’t. I still love him and I fear he will save me just to leave me bleeding one last time. He stirs my desires, a dark, delicious, and dangerous man destined to hurt me and leave me. This time I’m not sure I’ll survive.

“Why are you here alone, Rick Savage?”
He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”
The rain explodes around us again, an eternal roughening of the windows that only Texas does with such force. Thunder erupts with it, lightning in the distance, and I don’t know who moves first. Him or me. Suddenly though we’re in the middle of the seat and his fingers are tangling all rough and wonderfully in my hair, his mouth lowering to mine. “I’m going to kiss you now unless you object,” he says.
“Kiss me already, Savage.”
“Rick. Call me Rick.” And then his lips collide with my lips, his tongue a deep stroke of pure heat that has me moaning with the rush of sensation that assaults my body in the best of ways.
My arms slide around his muscular back, body pressing against his body, the hard lines of this incredible man absorbing more than the softer part of me. That need to be touched explodes inside me, demanding satisfaction. He pulls back and stares down at me. “Do you want to get out of here? Together.”
I tell myself this is crazy, insane, wildly out of my character. “I don’t do things like this. Ever.”
He kisses me again and leaves me breathless. “Make me the first.”



BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I’ve been waiting for Savage’s story (aka Rick to no-one but his lost love!!) since we first me him in the Walker Security books, so much so that I binge read Savage Hunger in less than a day!!

I’ve said it before and I’m positive I’m likely to say it again in the near future but Lisa Renee Jones kills me with these cliff-hangers….. ultimately in the best way, even if I do want to toss my kindle at a wall in frustration until I’ve calmed down!! :-/

This first book in the trilogy was a bit of a deep dive into Savage and Candace’s history, their present day connection to Rick’s current ‘job’ and an insight into just how good this pair can/could be together.

LRJ does dislikable characters well, take for example Candace’s fiancé who I want to hit – or even better, I want Savage to hit… and never stop…. – but of course, that wouldn’t help anyone and the douche will therefore have a stay of execution until we can figure out WTF he’s up to and involved in…. (sorry, got a little red mist in my eyes there…) and who all the players are and, most importantly, what the endgame is!?!

This book was packed with action, suspense, twists, anticipation, heat and steam, just what you’d expect from one of my favourite, go-to authors…..

I’m (not so) patiently waiting for Savage Burn, book two in the series, to find out what the hell is happening….

5 savagely deserved stars for this gripping read.

Arrow’s Edge MC Series, #1

Author: Freya Barker

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Brotherhood and beer meets single mom and apple pie.

I am a riding contradiction.

A scholar, a cynic, a brother, and a biker.

My name is Trunk.

I’m smart enough to recognize the chip on my shoulder, and cautious enough to keep it right where it is.

I am a misguided romantic.

A mom, a daughter, an agent, and a survivor

My name is Jaimie.

I’m strong enough to look after my family alone, and too stubborn to accept I don’t have to.

Together.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

LOVED this first book in the new series!!

Now, I know I pretty much say that about most books of Ms B’s that I read but the lady has a talent: she draws me in, makes her characters relatable (yeah, even when they are big, gruff, chip on their shoulder, bike riding blokes!!)
Her stories have heart, emotion, action and suspense as well as a whole shed load of heat and sexiness.

Edge of Reason was no different in this regard. Characters that we had met previously, so knew a little of their back story/history – which helped move the book along a little and get to the heart of their connection.
Trunk and Jaimie’s story was loaded with goings on that started in the third book in the On Call series by Freya (which was Trunk’ sister’s story!) though you don’t have to have read that series to make sense of this book.

I’m looking forward to more in the Arrow’s Edge MC and the On Call series from Freya as we’ve got a few characters that we’ve met so far who I just know are gonna make for interesting reading!!!

*****


Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and their own slice of happy.
A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!



 

BLOG TOUR – KERMODE: Legends #2 by Maggie Adams


LEGENDS: KERMODE
AUTHOR: MAGGIE ADAMS

COVER DESIGNER: MARIA VICKERS AND NIA FARRELL
RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 17, 2019

Poor Piper Sweet! She owns Sweetie Pie’s Bakery and Cafe. The curvaceous woman thinks she’s going out of her mind! She’s having weird dreams of soft fur and slashing claws, deep growls of lust, and cream puffs! She fears a break-in when she finds muddy prints on her bakery floor, but bear prints?? She’s afraid to tell a soul but needs to confide in someone when she finds herself naked in the woods on a frosty morning.

Noah is on a mission to eradicate the rogue shifters that have set up camp in the small town of Grafton, Illinois. His methods are a bit unorthodox, and his personality is on the wild side, but none of that matters when he walks into Sweetie Pie’s on the hunt for a shifter giving off the scent of power. One look at the curvy blonde and he’s in love – that is to say, he immediately imprints Piper as his soulmate. Trouble is, she’s the one giving off the power, and she doesn’t even know it.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I love shifter books – doesn’t matter what kinda shifter they are, they all intrigue me, but there’s something about bear shifters that just wins out IMHO!!

I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed the Tempered Steel series that introduced us to the Coalson family, some of who we catch up with in Kermode which is the second book in the Legends series from Maggie Adams

A shifter who doesn’t know what she truly is, a big gruff bear shifter who senses his mate, stumbles upon her and imprints on her pretty much as soon as he does, add to that the sense of threat around her bakery that he can feel and you’ve got one fun, hot and interesting story.

The story was engaging, with suspense and action and it had a supporting cast of great characters – some of who we’ve already met in previous books and a few whose own tales I can’t wait to read.

A solid 4* read for me and a definite recommend if you’re a PNR lover like me…


Maggie Adams is an Amazon Best Selling contemporary romance author. Her first book in the Tempered Steel Series, Whistlin’ Dixie, debuted in Amazon’s Top 100 for Women’s Fiction, humor, on November, 2014 and then again at #61 in 2016.

Her series has launched the tiny town of Grafton, Illinois, into International recognition with sales in Mexico, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and the UK.

RECENT RELEASE – Humbugged by Pippa Grant & Lili Valente

Title: Humbugged
Authors: Pippa Grant & Lili Valente
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 10, 2019
Blurb
He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season. 
So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with benefits?Someone must have spiked my eggnog.

I don’t do Marines.

Or Santas.

I learned my lesson about both the hard way.

But when Clint steps in to rescue me—from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery—I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends.

If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for…or if all the magic will disappear with the season.

Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world’s most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

COVER REVEAL ~ Just One Year by Penelope Ward

JUST ONE YEAR

(A standalone)

Release date: 2/24/2020

 

A Contemporary Romance Novel

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward

SYNOPSIS

The beginning of my sophomore year in college was off to a rough start.

On the first day of orientation, I had an altercation with an infuriating British dude.

(In the men’s room. Don’t ask.)

I got home later that night and realized that the foreign student we were expecting

to rent a room in my parents’ house was allergic to our cat.

So, the spare room went to someone else: Caleb—the British guy from the men’s

room.

And so it began…my love-hate story with Caleb Yates. Or was it hate-love in that

order?

The guy knew how to push every one of my buttons.

Sometimes I’d email him to express my aggravation and disdain.

He’d actually rewrite my own words and send them back to me.

That was the type of infuriating person Caleb was.

So frustrating.

And…

Sometimes incredibly funny and endearingly sweet.

And hot.

He eventually grew on me, and Caleb soon became one of my best friends that year.

Too bad he was headed back to England soon, so nothing could happen between

us—for so many reasons.

I definitely couldn’t fall in love with him, especially since all we had was just one

year.
