She did it! She made me love someone that I hated with a passion. Laurelin is a wicked, wicked woman! I love her for it though. Absolutely amazing series. Characters that are intense and deep. A story that is so twisted that I devoured every single word. This book was everything! Every question answered. Every speculation I had was wrong. Exactly the kind of book you need to get lost in. The entire series is that way! Do not miss this!

Grant’s Heat by Angel Payne ~ Blog Tour w/ 4 Star Review!

GH-BNW-tour-banner (1)

Grant's Heat

Grant’s Heat (Shark’s Edge Book 4)
by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue
Grant’s Heat is the beginning of a new trilogy within the Shark’s Edge series
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Is ignoring the heat a recipe for disaster?

Grant Twombley has it all—a successful career, a contacts list full of gorgeous and willing bedmates, and the ear of Los Angeles’s most prominent captain of industry.

But being Sebastian Shark’s right-hand man isn’t without its challenges. Messy ones. Unknown forces still work to take down Shark Enterprises, and Grant’s full focus is needed to protect their empire. But he’s sitting on a scandalous secret. A truth he can’t even share with his best friend. Until disaster strikes.

Rio Gibson carries dark secrets of her own. She hides them well…until her world is shattered. She holds Shark responsible, but the only person she shares her suspicions with is also the man closest to him—the giving, gorgeous man who makes her feel so many new and surprising things. Dangerous things.

But Rio’s used to handling the heat in the kitchen, and she can handle this challenge too. Getting out simply isn’t an option—no matter how bad it’ll burn in the end.

I am completely in love with this series. It’s addictive, steamy and fast paced. Grant is so oddly hot. He’s not your typical hero. He’s different and a bit quirky. I loved the change of pace. The tension and angst was killer and I couldn’t read fast enough to see how it turned out. Definitely a must read. Definitely recommend this series. So different and compelling.

Riot House BT Baner

Riot House Cover

RIOT HOUSE by Callie Hart
Release Date: April 29th



They might be richer than gods, but they’re morally bankrupt.

As far as the boys who run America’s most exclusive international academy are concerned, I’m an unwelcome interloper, an inconvenience, and they’re determined to make my life a living hell.

When Wren Jacobi sets eyes on Wolf Hall Academy’s newest inductee, all he sees is an easy mark. A reserved little girl with a target painted on her back. He knows nothing of my troubled past, though. Nothing of my mother’s suspicious death, or the horrific treatment I’ve had to endure at the hands of my psychotic father.

And he has no idea of the lengths that I, unassuming little Elodie Stillwater, will go to in order to break the savage beast who dreams of breaking me first.

There’s a wolf stalking the forests that surround my new school.
Little does he know…
There are far scarier predators lurking out there in the dark.

I. Loved. This. Book! Callie knocks another one out of the park for me. I was on the edge of my chair reading this one. So many twists. So many ups and downs. A hero you love to hate and a heroine that you can’t help but respect and admire. This book had all the great things! Definitely a must read. One of the best books I’ve read this year!

“You’ll find all the magic and darkly erotic allure in these pages. 5 stars is not enough for how much I enjoyed this wild adventure!”

~ Keri Lake, USA Today bestselling author

seaofruin cover

Genre → Dark Historical Pirate Romance, Stand-alone



Bennett Sharp is on the run.
Wanted for piracy, she fears neither God nor death nor man.
Except Priest Farrell.

The unfaithful, stormy-eyed libertine hunts her with terrifying possessiveness. Nothing will stop him from coming for her. Not his unforgivable betrayal. Not when she’s captured by the ice-cold pirate hunter, Lord Ashley Cutler.
She must escape Ashley’s prison and Priest’s deceit. But can she walk away from their twisted desires?

Two gorgeous captains stand on opposite sides of the law. When they collide in a battle to protect her, the lines blur between enemies and lovers.
Passion heats, secrets unravel, and hearts entangle until they break.
Can love prevail in the sea of ruin?


The short story, KING OF LIBERTINES, can be read before or after SEA OF RUIN.

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve read a historical romance and I wasn’t sure this was what I was in the mood for. But omg did this story take me by surprise and give me exactly what I wanted. Bennett Sharp is a feisty tomboy, daughter of a notorious pirate and independent as hell. Priest is a sweet talking ladies’ man who’s the pirate that won Bennett’s heart and then broke it. I loved him…hated him…loved him…he’s a sexy beast…what more can I say? Their chemistry sizzled off the pages. Lord Ashley is a serious, strategic pirate hunter who’s taking on capturing as many as he can after a successful wartime career. He’s all proper and noble born. Bennett is just the woman who can poke a hole into that regal veneer and get a rise out of him. Lots of adventure, action, twists and angst with the fighting of feelings and pushing the temptation to level one hundred. Whoa…it’s steamy. Definitely kept me entertained and flipping those pages.

Wow! I’ll be the first to admit that historical romances are not my thing. But…anything Pam writes is most definitely up my alley. I devoured this book! I enjoyed the fact that it was a refreshing change of pace. I definitely didn’t predict the way the story played out. It kept me on my toes and interested the entire time. I fell in love with the characters. Their chemistry was scorching and there is nothing like some pirate pillaging…just sayin’! Whew! Pam nailed it. I can’t wait to see what kind of y’all wicked goodness she comes up with next!

Sea of Ruin Teaser


Footsteps sounded behind me, the tread of a single pair of boots approaching from the shore.

Beads of sweat trickled between my breasts and gathered beneath the stays. I knew that lazy, arrogant gait. I feared it.

Pushing back my shoulders, I girded my spine and turned to face my biggest mistake.

A few paces away, the pirate leaned against a wooden post. His thumb hooked casually in the straps of leather that wound around his trim hips. His other hand hung at his side, dangling my lost compass by the chain.

Rancor battled longing. Scorn collided with sadness, and my outrage bowed beneath the helpless, banal attraction I’d always felt for him.

His brown breeches fit him like a glove, the threads molding around powerful thighs and the sizable bulge of his groin. His loose shirt tucked into multiple belts at his waist and laced up his chest to open at the neck. A strong neck, covered in scruff and sinew.

I swallowed thickly, my entire body pulsing with an unwanted ache as my gaze rose to his.

Eyes glinting like polished steel glared down at me. Moonlight cast his prominent features in stark relief—stern forehead, defined cheekbones, perfect nose, full lips—leaving the rest of his face in shadow. The severe straight line of his mouth amplified the intensity in his expression.

He was furious. Seething with two years’ worth of blistering, unresolved ire.

My heart died a thousand deaths before I found my voice. “Priest.”

“Bennett, my love.” He spilled the endearment into the air, each syllable a vicious growl of torment. “How I’ve missed you.”

Harvest of Sighs Cover

HARVEST OF SIGHS (Thornchapel #3) by Sierra Simone
Release Date: May 1st



The genius and the sunshine girl. As children, we fought bitterly and often, bickering every chance we got.

But then we grew up.
Then we came back.

Delphine Dansey carries her heart on the outside of her body; she’s looking for love and chasing dreams. She’s spoiled and selfish, the kind of beautiful that’s made for money and fame. But somehow she’s ended up in my keeping: a pretty submissive I can’t seem to resist, a lover who obsesses and tempts me.

I thought I’d locked my heart away a long time ago, along with all my other weaknesses. But some doors won’t stay closed, no matter how hard I fight to keep them shut. She unravels me, just like our friends are unraveling, just like Thornchapel itself is unraveling.

All year long, we’ve been sowing lust and jealousy and pain, heedless of the consequences. But a harvest is inevitable, and so now we must reap our sorrows.

And our sighs.

*Harvest of Sighs is Book Three in the Thornchapel series.*

WOWZAA! Want a book that will make you scream at the end?! Well, it’s right here! I got completely sucked into the story and the epicness that is Thornchapel that I didn’t even notice I had finished the book. Addicting from beginning to end. This series is completely different. There’s so much going on that you can’t skim to get to the good parts. Guaranteed to miss something if you do. Simone nails another one and I can’t wait to see how this all ends. So many questions that I NEED answers to. So many taboo and twisted scenes that I went back and read them just to make sure I wasn’t going crazy. All the good book things!!! LOVED IT!
