Laurel Young needs a plan, and fast. After her reality TV boss has a major meltdown, not-so-fun employment seems inevitable--unless she can pitch the idea of a lifetime. When she sees Flint McKay's audition tape - flannelled, handsome as hell, and building a house with his own two hands - she knows she's found her secret weapon. The women of America are going to love him, especially if she can convince him to try building without the flannel shirt.

Only problem is, Flint didn’t make that tape - and he has zero interest in trading the wilds of Western Massachusetts for the bright lights of Hollywood. But Laurel isn’t the kind of girl to take no for an answer. Soon, she's knee-deep in rustic charm, and getting plenty of hands-on experience. And it turns out, this city girl and country guy may have a few things in common after all, like crazy hot chemistry, a wild side, and a weakness for good whiskey...

But can their behind-the-scenes connection last once the world falls in love with Flint? And will this be the big break both of them need- or leave them in the dirt?

Find out in Lila Monroe’s fun, sexy new novel!

*This is a stand-alone novel with HEA. No cliff-hangers!*

Excerpt

I laid my head against the cool glass of the bus window and watched the rain slick against it. The water beaded against the glass and then slid down in little rivulets that I traced with my finger.

I wouldn’t miss the rain.

I wouldn’t miss anything about Oregon.

That place wasn’t my home. Never had been, and never would be.

With a jolt, the bus roared to life, startling me, but I relaxed a moment later when we pulled out of the station.

Freedom was so close to being mine.

I watched the people on the street as the bus pulled away. I was searching for buzzed brown hair and eerie black eyes, but he wasn’t amongst them.

He didn’t know I’d left yet.

And hopefully, by the time he did, I’d be long gone.

I adjusted my hoodie so my face was hidden from the other people on the bus and wiggled around, settling myself in for the long ride to California.

Unlike the other people on the bus, I didn’t have a cellphone to keep me company. Cellphones were traceable so I’d ditched mine. I couldn’t risk him finding me, because if he had I was certain he’d kill me. He would’ve eventually killed me if I stayed, too. My only option had been to take the risk of running away. I would have rather died on my terms than his, but if everything went according to plan, I’d be free and he’d never find me.

He called me Scarlett, but Scarlett didn’t exist.

Scarlett was a lie.


My name was Ariella, and I was reclaiming my stolen life.

Angel Falls by Tracey Sinclair PLUS Interview





It isn't easy to surprise Cassandra Bick. When you run a human-vampire dating agency, your colleague is a witch who is engaged to a shifter and your business partner is one of London's most powerful (and sexiest) vampires, there's no such thing as a normal day at the office. 

But when a mysterious Dark Dates client brings a dire warning of a new threat to the city's supernatural community, Cass and her friends realise they are up against their deadliest foe yet – and that this time, the danger is far closer to home than they could ever have imagined. 

Sexy, snarky and with more bite than a crypt full of vampires, Angel Falls is the latest in the Dark Dates: Cassandra Bick series.



Buy the book at Amazon or You can read for FREE with KU!




Whew, what a ride! Why this series is not more popular, I'll never know! Paranormal at it's finest. Action packed from start to finish. 

The gang is back and at it again. The minute they clear up one situation another is on it's heels. Cain is recovering from their last "mission", Laclos is experiencing some unwanted side effects after sampling Cain's brand of cure, and Cass is hoping for a few minutes peace. Too bad it isn't in the cards for her. Medea and Katie are also experiencing some problems. It seems our little ragtag team is falling apart at the seams. As if those aren't enough problems, there is not just one, but several sets of villains vying to take them down. How are they gonna make it out of this one? 

There is a major cliff hanger ending which has me dying for the next book! I need it NOW. If you haven't read this series, do yourself a big favor and start it right away! You will NOT be sorry! Action, snark, and sexiness what more could you want?

I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.






Interview with the author


Do you write full time? If not, what do you do to bring home the bacon?

I’m a freelance writer and editor, so I do a little of everything – writing for websites and magazines, editing copy, etc. as well as writing books and plays.

Do you have plans for more books in the future?

Yes! I’m working on the next Dark Dates book already, and have a couple of other ideas in progress.

Which of your characters would you want to date?

I think Laclos would be fun for a hot, sexy fling (and what a fling that would be!), but for a long-term relationship, it would have to be Cain.

Did anyone inspire your characters? Personal acquaintances or celebrities?

A lot of the characters were initially inspired by other books, but in a reactionary way – I was bored reading about heroines who were either completely passive or superheroines, so I created someone I thought could be more relatable, and Laclos started out as a pastiche of the kind of super sexy, super smooth vampires you read in a lot of paranormal romances, before he really grew into his own character. Of the others, Katie (Medea’s fiancĂ©e) the no-nonsense nurse, is based on a couple of women I know, one of whom is a nurse – so I get to pick her brains if I need to.

Tell us one thing about you that most people would be surprised to know.

Ah, that would be telling…

What do you do to unwind?

I live in Brighton, on the coast, so my favourite thing to do is walk by the sea.

Do you attend signings? If so which do you attend or which would you like to attend?

Well, this one is slightly sad, because I will never be able to do it now, but I would have loved to have met Terry Pratchett. He’s one of my all-time heroes. I’d love to meet Joss Whedon, but I think I’d just gibber.

This or That
Sexiest part of a male?

I have a thing for well-toned arms. Yummy!

Coffee or Tea?

Coffee. Black and plentiful.

Beach or Mountains?

Beach. I love the sea.

Sunrise or Sunset?

Sunset.

Cat or Dog?

Cat.

Favorite Color?

I’m currently a bit obsessed with anything metallic and shiny…

Favorite Desert?

Anything chocolatey.

Reading or writing?

Can’t have one without the other!

Excerpt

I take a fistful of her hair and pull her closer, wanting to lick every inch of her mouth. Her taste is intoxicating and makes me want to do sinful things to her body. My cock is already painfully hard, nudging against my pants, practically begging to be taken out and played with.

I’ve wanted this since I first laid eyes on her. It’s so fucking bad, but I can’t get enough of the way she looks at me with those innocent eyes. She’s a vixen, and she knows it. She spins us all around her little finger, and I love it.

Marcus stands behind her, grabbing her waist, only to push her closer to me. He kisses her shoulder, neck, and back as I kiss her. Between us, she smolders with heat and desire that’s impossible to ignore.

I let my hands roam freely over her body, squeezing her tits and tugging her nipples until she squirms and moans into my mouth. I smile against her lips and continue to kiss her, knowing that my touch drives her crazy. I know how to please a woman. I’ve been taught for so long, I could never forget.

But fuck me, is this something else.

We’re kissing her both, sandwiching her between us like some sex-crazed cavemen.

“Show her how much you want her,” Marcus growls, setting his teeth into her skin.

She gasps as he leaves a gentle bite mark, and I take her nipple into my mouth and suck hard, then nibble a little, setting her skin on fire.

She moans out loud, and I return to her face to capture the sound.

“Yes, make those sounds, Ava. Show us how much you want us too,” Marcus growls.

He slides his hand between her legs as I kiss her, and I can tell from the way she’s panting into my mouth that he’s flicking her clit so hard she could come right there and then. God, I’d do it just for that look of pure pleasure on her face. It’s magnificent. Something to behold. Something special I can’t place, but I feel it deep down in my heart. I need this woman. Right now.

However, I don’t get the chance to make a move because Marcus just grabbed a bottle of lube and positioned himself behind her, squirting it all over her and himself. He parts her legs, grabbed his cock, and shoved it up her ass.

She mewls out loud, her head tipping back as he grips her hair. I do the only thing I can think of. I kiss her neck, toying with her nipples as he pounds her ass again and again. Her eyes connect with mine, desperation and need seeping through until I feel nothing but the desire to satisfy her every craving. So I keep kissing her over and over until she can barely breathe.

I watch him bring his fingers back to her pussy, flicking her clit as he fucks her in the ass.

“You’re so wet, Ava. Is it because you’re kissing him?” he whispers. “Or is it because I’m fucking your tight ass?”

“Yes,” she moans, and her admission only makes me harder. “Both.”

“I bet you’d like to come all over my hand, don’t you?”

His dirty talking even has me shivering as I kiss her lips.

“Oh, God, yes,” she says, shuddering.

“Daniel wants you too, Ava … He wants to fuck your pretty little mouth while I claim your ass …”

“Yes … both of you.”

“Both of us at the same time, fucking your holes until you can no longer stand,” he groans.

She gasps. “Yes.”

Fuck me.

I thought my cock couldn’t get any harder, but apparently, it could.

It’s about to burst out of my pants, so I throw all my restraint out the window and tear down my pants, allowing my cock to spring free from its constraints.

And good God … the way she looks down at it, blinking rapidly, licking the top of her lips … it makes me want to bend her over and fuck her next.

“See how hard he is for you? It’s all for you, Ava.”

“But Master …” She swallows, gazing at my length and then back up at my eyes. “Are you sure this is okay?”

“Ava … you both belong to me.” His eyes glint with thirst as he licks her skin like an animal. “Now … Bend over.”

Paradise Fought: Abel by L.B. Dunbar




Title: Paradise Fought: Abel
Series: Paradise #1
Author: L.B. Dunbar
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance/MMA
 Release Date: January 25, 2016



Blurb

I'm not a fighter.
I was born into a fighting family. As the middle child, I was overlooked in favor of my older brother.
He took the negative attention, too. In comparison, there's nothing special about me.
I’m not as big as Cobra. I’m not as strong as Cobra. He's the alpha.
I'm a beta.
The second son.
The lesser one.
The one never encouraged to fight, never encouraged to do anything, but stay out of my father’s way.

I'm not a lover either - but I wished to be – that’s why I needed her.
I met a girl in the pouring rain.
Sounds cliché, but it's true. It changed everything.
Because of love, I learned to fight.

Betas come second, but in this fight, my story is first.

Excerpt

If I thought I was going to make a speedy getaway, I was wrong. My savior caught up to me, half way down the walk, outside the finance building. He was quick and a large hand wrapped around my upper arm.

“Whoa, sister,” he said, slightly out of breath. “You almost got away from me again.”

“What?” I questioned. I had no idea what he meant: again.

“Never mind,” he muttered, his hand still on me. I looked down at it and he immediately released me. My eyes pinched as I realized I didn’t mind his hand on my skin. There was something nonthreatening about him. He seemed rather innocent, studious, actually. His shirt was buttoned almost to the top and tucked into his pants. The sleeves secure at the cuffs. His jeans were snug and hugged him well. He wore dark rimmed glasses that screamed smart. Brown boots looked too new on his large feet. It was like he had the right parts but the wrong combination.

His blue eyes were soft and easy to look into. They practically spoke to me, but I had no idea what he was saying. His dark hair was disheveled, a bit shaggy, but cool looking. He kind of looked like a pop star, which was a little too sugar sweet for me. His form was questionable. It was hard to tell what kind of body he had under those clothes. He looked rather preppy, like half the guys at this university. I didn’t want to think about it. I’d just sold my soul for another semester.

“So when do you want to do this?” I asked. His blank stare told me he had no idea what I meant.

“Us,” I said, pointing between him and me.

“I…” His voice trailed off as he gawked at me. His expression changed from confusion to shock.

“I didn’t buy you to sleep with you,” he said, a touch of disbelief in his voice. His face turned crimson, then fell. “Why, have you done that before?” It was my turn to be surprised and offended.

I turned on my heels and began stomping away from him. He was too quick and he caught me again. His hand on my arm halted me. This time he didn’t release me when I peered down at his fingers wrapped around my bicep.

“Look. I need help,” he blurted. His face pinked a little, and it was sweet. “I don’t need help with sex. I need help with before.” His tone dropped, and he looked side to side to see if anyone would hear him. I took his meaning.

“You don’t know how to do foreplay?” I questioned in a loud whisper, trying to hide my astonishment. How could anyone have sex and not know a touch of foreplay?

His face pinked again.

“Not that,” he said, sounding like a child. “The flirting. The dating. The…other stuff.”

I was stunned. I stared at him, taking in his features again. He was kind of cute, leaning toward the potential for good looking. He couldn’t possibly need help with this request. The confusion on my face made him speak.

“I don’t know how to flirt.” The words swirled between us.

“I don’t understand.” I didn’t. I didn’t know what he wanted from me.

“I need lessons how to be…cool: with girls. Call it a tutoring session. I need to learn how to be…seen.” His voice took on a touch of sadness. He couldn’t possibly be serious. I continued to stare at him. My mouth might have actually dropped open a bit, and I noticed he was watching my lips. It was a little exciting the way he stared at them. I licked them and his pupils dilated, filling in more black over the blue. His expression changed. Knowingly, he blinked when he realized I was teasing him. His lip quirked up and a dimple showed in his cheek.

“I need to date you,” he blurted. “To learn how to do, what you just did to me.”
