Hold Me Now by J.H. Croix ~ Release Blitz

HOLD ME NOW
J.H. Croix
Release Date: October 19

A brand new firefighter series from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix!

He’s my new roommate.
I can’t stand him, and he can’t stand me.

Russell Dane thinks he’s all that. Maybe’s he’s so hot he should come with a too-hot-to-handle sign, but he drives me crazy. Not the good kind of crazy either.

He thinks women shouldn’t be firefighters, he’s obnoxiously overprotective, and I can’t stand him. Unfortunately, my body is not getting the memo, but I’m stronger than a few confused hormones. Right?

It wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to work together, and if he wasn’t my boss. It definitely wouldn’t be so bad if he hadn’t gone and kissed me.

Russel & Paisley’s story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, hotshot firefighters, sassy tomboy heroines, roommate romance, frenemies to lovers, hate to love, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of steam and swoon, and a broody, protective hero.

Russell is a firefighter in Alaska and lives in a house his mother owns. It’s two separate apartments that share a kitchen. Paisley is an Alaskan transplant firefighter who recently moved there. She doesn’t have luck finding much as far as living but does get referred to a place where she only has to share the kitchen with someone.

Paisley and Russell work together and for some reason, they do not get along. I still don’t understand the real reason they did not get along. Paisley finds out that Russell is her new roommate. While they don’t get along at work, they are attracted to each other and now have to live together. There is another storyline dealing with Paisley’s brother and to to be honest, I don’t know why it was included.

I couldn’t seem to connect with this story and skimmed more than once. I did not feel the spark between these two. Their sexy scenes were not steamy enough for my liking. It was just an ok romance for me.

Tease Me Once by Willow Winters ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

Declan Cross has a story… and he’d like to tell you every sordid detail of it.

Tease Me Once by Willow Winters  is now live!

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling romance author, W Winters, comes a provocative tale of a club designed for wealthy sinners.  It’s a story crafted for those of us who crave the villain.

Not everyone knows about The Club, which is by design.  The main floor entertains the elite.  There are dim lights, stolen touches and the liquor flows to ensure the guests get exactly what they want.  There are high profile clients, masks and collars, contracts and secrets in every corner. 

But it’s what lies beneath these floors, down the spiral staircase, that intrigues me the most.

There’s a man who stays in the corner of the darkest rooms.  In this world of sinful tastes, he doesn’t hide his face like the rest of them; he’s not concerned with anonymity in the least.

Declan Cross is powerful, brooding and his dark eyes speak of damage that my soul begs to unravel.  I’ve always been drawn to men who are rough around the edges, the bad guys so to speak… but he’s a kind of brutal that scares me. 
So I promised myself I’d stay away. 
I swore up and down, I would never give in to the fantasies that haunt me at night.

One night changed everything.  He knows I witnessed everything that happened.  There are no deals or negotiations with men like him. 

He made it known in no uncertain terms what he desired most… I saw something I shouldn’t have.  And now I’m his.


Tease Me Once is the beginning of a series.  Prepare for everything seductive and beautifully dark.

Declan, the youngest of the infamous and feared Cross brothers, runs their club. A place where you can go and discreetly make your deepest fantasies become a reality. A place where the booze runs like a river and the rooms downstairs are meant for a certain type of play.

“They say we’re murderers and thieves. We’re gangsters and lowlifes.”

Braelynn has just started over and finally living on her own after a messy break up dealing with a stalker asshole ex. She needs a job and her friend Scarlett offers her a position at a local upscale club. She promises the tips would be well worth it and Braelynn doesn’t hesitate. But she quickly learns the club may be more than she bargained for. The customers may want more than she is willing to give. She is on the fence about whether she can swing her new job when she meets her new boss. Things become even more complicated.

“Declan Cross is a brutal storm, unforgiving and reckless.”

The last person that Declan expects to see working in his club is Braelynn. So many things from his past come rushing into his present. He can’t seem to stay away from the beautiful, sweet girl he hasn’t seen in years. The one who was kind to him when no one else was. Braelynn goes quickly from server to Declan’s personal assistant. Most of their time together is just one smoking hot scene after the other. The chemistry between the two was off the damn charts. It was so damn hot. Declan soon discovers someone is trying to double cross him and his brothers. They will end whoever is responsible. He’s just hoping none of what they uncover points to his pet, Braelynn.

“My heart beats once, heavy and exacting. I love her. I won’t let them take her from me.”

This was a great start to a new series. It did take me a little while to get into the story but once I did…I didn’t want it to end. Declan was dark, brooding and oh so sexy. I loved how even though he was super dominant that he still sometimes showed a different side when he was with Braelynn. I loved how Braelynn was strong, independent and saw beyond Declan’s tough guy image. The chemistry between them was crazy hot and nonstop. Secrets, lies, drama and betrayals. Will the Cross brothers find out who is trying to cross them? Will Braelynn be collateral damage? That cliffhanger was insane. I can’t wait to see where the author take the next book!

Meet Willow


I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing.  I couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful career.

Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

Indigo Ridge by Devney Perry is now live!

Winslow Covington believes in life, liberty and the letter of the law. As Quincy, Montana’s new chief of police, she’s determined to prove herself to the community and show them she didn’t earn her position because her grandfather is the mayor.

According to her pops, all she has to do is earn favor with the Edens. But winning over the town’s founding family might have been easier if not for her one-night stand with their oldest son. In her defense, it was her first night in town and she didn’t realize that the rugged and charming man who wooed her into bed was Quincy royalty.

Sleeping with Griffin Eden was a huge mistake, one she’s trying to forget. He’s insufferable, arrogant and keeps reminding everyone that she’s an outsider. Winslow does her best to avoid Griffin, but when a woman is found dead on Eden property, the two of them have no choice but to cross paths.

As clues to the murderer lead to one of Quincy’s own, Griffin realizes Winslow is more than he gave her credit for. Beautiful and intelligent, she proves hard to resist. For him. And the killer.

I don’t know what it is about these small town romances but they have me swooning and sighing all over the place. Both Winslow and Griffin were very likable characters. I love a strong heroine and Winslow didn’t let me down with her steady gut instincts, high morale character and low drama attitude. I simply was very impressed with a great no-nonsense heroine that I could firmly side with. Griffin was an unfaltering family guy…protective, trustworthy and not afraid to go after what he wanted. A steady, stable guy…who Winslow could spend time with…or not. She didn’t need him to do her job or live her life. BUT the chemistry between the two…thank you. SO GOOD! The entire story was such a pleasure to read and felt like a warm, comfy embrace. The twists in the investigation were great and kept you guessing. Perfect start to a new small town series that I know I’ll fall in love with.

Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling is now live!

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.

I belong to him.

If you are anything like me, you read a lot of different books at different times. I, for one, can’t remember everything about a book I read months ago, and unfortunately not all the books come out at one time. This had me worried about reading this story. I am familiar with the characters that this story has in it…the Constantines and the Morellis. But I can’t remember who is who so when I started reading this, I was worried and felt a bit lost. Once I got into the story, it all started coming back to me. Don’t let that scare you from reading this. You will regret missing out on reading this book.

Bianca Belcante has had a difficult life. Her father died when she was younger. She was left to help her mother raise her brother. Her mother didn’t do much to help since she was busy dating new men all of the time. Bianca meets one of the new boyfriends and has a strange reaction to him. She isn’t sure if it is dislike or like but soon after her mother passes away. She has no one else to call so she calls him. Tiernan Morelli.

Tiernan knows a lot of secrets about Bianca and her brother. He decides to take them in and become their guardian. The problem is Tiernan also has a lot of secrets about himself. The heat between Bianca and Tiernan is STEAMING. I have never rooted for two characters more than I have these two. I can’t wait to see how this all works out.

The second book in the Breed series picks up right where the first one left off…in complete and total chaos. Siren flees OM but not before making the decision to free Michael from the cage he never should have been in. Her mission is to make it to Kingdom B. First, she must escape the reptiles who are chasing her that are intent on catching and devouring her. To Siren, survival is everything. She must complete the mission she was sent to Earth for. Survival trumps everything.

“Remember your breed. Remember your ancestors. Remember why you continue on. Never forget what matters more than anything…Survival.”

Kingdom B was the Kingdom her people told her was her mission from the beginning. The kingdom that welcomed all breeds with open arms. Make it to Kingdom B no matter what the cost. Even if you must betray those closest to you. One thing she didn’t expect to see was the Praetor of OM, Aedan.

“I have found the idea of Kingdom B is far more noble than the Kingdom itself.”

So much happens in this book and the pace is nonstop. Siren and the others quickly learn that the place they thought would offer sanctuary is not all it seems. Secrets, lies and betrayals hide in the shadows and all the breeds may not survive the battle that is sure to come.

“We were creatures who had no reverence for life. How could we ever succeed?”

I didn’t think there was any way possible that this book would be as good as the first. Breed was one the best books I’ve read. While I hoped this one would be good, I didn’t expect it to blow the first one out of the water. Shadow was brilliant. Siren and Aedan’s characters are some of my favorites. I loved them even more in this book. The author pulls us into this intricately detailed dystopian world that kept me captivated from beginning to that jaw dropping cliffhanger at the end. The characters, the breeds, the kingdoms…everything about this series so far has been phenomenal. The author doesn’t hold back, and I am one hundred percent here for it all. The cliffhanger shocked the hell out of me, and I cannot wait until the next book. Shadow was one hell of an amazing follow up to Breed. This series is a must read!

“We will not live in this world. We will fight for something new.”
