SYNOPSIS

Marie’s first standalone title in five years!
He’s good for one thing and one thing only—and she wants it bad.
Honey Carmichael has never had a decent orgasm, and she’s out to change that with the one man in town known for his superior skill between the sheets.
Blake Dempsey is happy to help Honey with her “problem” as long as she knows he’s only interested in sex. His heart was broken when his high school girlfriend was killed in the car he was driving, and he has nothing to offer other than more orgasms than Honey can handle.
Which is just fine with her—until fantastic orgasms aren’t enough anymore for either of them and unexpected feelings turn hot sex into messy entanglement—and that most definitely wasn’t in the plans.
But you know what they say about plans…
A sexy, dirty stand-alone romance intended for MATURE audiences. If you can’t take the heat in Blake’s bedroom, stay out or you might get burned. You’ve been warned!

REVIEW

What can I say? Marie Force knocked it out of the park with this stand-alone story. The story jumps in from the very first words of the book. Blake and Honey are both characters you will fall in love with. Blake is so broken and thinks he has nothing to offer anyone other than sex. Honey thinks sex is all she needs from him. When the two get together it is explosive. What neither are prepared for is the emotion.

This is one hot book! It is also one very moving book. It is five stars all the way!

Book: Jared: Kings of Guardian Book 5
Book 5 in the Kings of Guardians series but all the books do stand alone.
Author: Kris Michaels
Genre: Military Erotic Romance#JaredCover

Synopsis:

Jared King had endured more than the normal amount of danger in his life.  He’d jumped from planes into hot landing zones, been shot at, almost blown up—twice, damn near killed more times than he cared to remember. Yet, nothing in his past compared to the danger of admitting his feelings for Christian Koehler. When Jared pushed Christian away too hard, once too often, the young man finally left and took Jared’s heart with him.
Once upon a time, Christian Koehler had idolized Jared King. But after two years of the arrogant man’s hot and cold mind games, Christian avoided the sexy Guardian like the plague. The jagged line between love and hate was paper thin and razor sharp, and Jared had pushed Christian across that line, with prejudice.
When Christian discovers what he believes is a common thread in several disappearances of the homeless and at-risk teens in his area, he immediately tells his superiors.  But neither his employer nor the D.C. cops believe the missing children are connected. Desperate to find out the truth, Christian swallows his pride and returns to the Kings and Guardian for help.
Jared seizes the opportunity to investigate the missing children and the unexpected chance to once again be part of Christian’s life. What he finds leads to a tempest of deceit, danger and intrigue that pulls Christian back into Jared’s world. This time, Jared vows to fight to keep Christian with him forever—no matter the cost.

Title: Visibly Broken
Authors: Chelsea Camaron & MJ Fields
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 20, 2016
Publisher: Loveswept
In a powerful, smoldering novel from the bestselling authors of the Caldwell Brothers series (“Bad boy heroes to die for!”—Tracy Wolff), two tortured souls team up to overcome the past, finding the courage to heal . . . and to love.

Jason “Cobra” Stanley was born to fight. With a father like his, he had to toughen up just to survive. Now Cobra tries to take out all of his frustration, all of his anger, and all of his pain in the MMA cage. But after he receives one too many hits to the head during a match with Jagger Caldwell, the cycle of violence comes to a screeching halt. Cobra wakes up in the hospital, under the care of a nurse whose blond hair shines like a halo—and whose pure heart touches him on the deepest level.

Lorraine Bosch is a fighter too. Having escaped from her own controlling father, she prides herself on remaining professional, despite the chaos of the ER. But Cobra is the ultimate distraction. Lorraine knows she should run away screaming from his rippling muscles and shattered psyche. And yet how can she deny this broken man a second chance—especially since she knows exactly what he’s been through? Lorraine’s used to playing guardian angel. Now it’s her turn to find heaven in Cobra’s arms.

REVIEW

This is a very emotional story about two people who are broken by their pasts. Together they are explosively hot and fiercely protective. Can their love beak through what they have experienced in their past?

This book is full of twists that catch you off guard. It is really hot and really emotional. It will keep your own your toes and pulling for these two to be released from their own tragedy’s.

These two authors write so well together. I love their stories! I was thrilled to read this one as an extension from the Caldwell series! You don’t have to read that series to read this book, but if you like this one, grab that series!

“When I go into a book hating the hero, and then by the end of the book love him, I know I have found an exceptional read. Visibly Broken is that read.”—Ryan Michele, author of the Ravage MC & Vipers Creed MC Series 

“Can you be the light to someone’s dark? Can a new start help kill the demons of the past? Chelsea Camaron and M.J. Fields deliver a TKO with this book. Cobra takes my breath away.” —S.M. Donaldson, author of the Marco’s MMA Boys Series

USA Today bestselling author Chelsea Camaron is a small town Carolina girl with a big imagination. She’s a wife and mom, chasing her dreams. She writes contemporary romance, erotic suspense, and psychological thrillers. She loves to write about blue-collar men who have real problems with a fictional twist. From mechanics to bikers to oil riggers to smokejumpers, bar owners, and beyond she loves a strong hero who works hard and plays harder.

USA Today bestselling author M.J. Field’s love of writing was in full swing by age eight. Together with her cousins, she wrote a newsletter and sold it for ten cents to family members. 

Her writing has changed a bit. Instead of updating the ‘Fields’ family, she writes highly emotional and … steamy romance novels. Her stories are full of authentic, raw, and gritty alpha male characters and the women they fall for. There always seems to be humor and a strong focus on family intertwined. 

She self-published her first contemporary romance in January 2013. Today she has completed eight self-published series, The Love Series, The Wrapped Series, The Burning Souls Series, The Men of Steel Series, Ties of Steel Series, The Norfolk series and The Rockers of Steel series. 
MJ is a hybrid author who publishes an Indie book almost every month, and is signed with a traditional publisher, Loveswept, Penguin Random House, for her co-written series The Caldwell Brothers. Hendrix and, Morrison, and Jagger are available.

MJ lives in central New York, surrounded by family and friends. Her house is full of pets, friends, and noise ninety percent of the time, and she would have it no other way.

Synopsis

Forty-year-old, hard bitten, foul-mouthed, homicide detective, Hiro Santos, suspects the owner of the art studio committed the gory killing. Too bad. There are other things he’d like to do to the gorgeous young man than book him for murder. Worse, his sexy suspect is certifiable. The nutcase claims he’s some kind of high wizard from an alternate reality and needs Hiro’s help to save their worlds.

While the striking Sable Campion appears a youthful twenty-five, he’s endured over two-hundred lonely years as guardian of the portal between Everlight and Elysium. None of those centuries offered him any experience finding a vicious killer. That’s where Hiro Santos comes in; but convincing the virile detective to trust Sable will take all his persuasive skills…and perhaps a bit of magic.
The magic they find in each other’s arms will rock each of their realities.

Excerpt
“You’ve made your point. You’re a legend; everyone knows your name. Now stop. You don’t have to be this person anymore.”
“Stop? What difference would it make? The damage is done. This is who I am,” he growled, pounding his fist to his chest.
“This is not who you are; this is what you want everyone to believe. But I know the truth, you’re just like your father. Underneath all that hostility and rage, is a good man. And it would make a huge difference to me if you’d try to change,” I said, giving him my irresistible big eyes.
He answered with a sigh.
“All I’m asking is for you to try.”
“Why?”
“Because…I want to learn how to love you.”

Sins That Haunt by Lucy Farago

Release Blitz: 13th September

Part of the ‘Women of Vegas’ Series and CAN be read standalone.

 

Genre: Romantic Suspense


Goodreads


Synopsis


The glitz and glamour of Las Vegas hide a multitude of sins. And in Lucy Farago’s show-stopping series, a lawyer and an FBI agent take a walk on the seedy side, where greed breeds a deadly desperation…
Civil attorney Shannon Joyce walks the line of law and order, but she learned from day one how to put up a good front—thanks to her con man father. Thirteen years ago, she left the east coast and her life of crime behind. Her high school sweetheart, Noah, was collateral damage, but some things can’t be helped. But now there’s no escape when her past comes roaring down the Strip—in the oh-so-tempting form of the man she left behind…

 

Special Agent Noah Monroe has Shannon exactly where he wants her—in the back of his car in handcuffs. Her grifter father has been murdered, and the FBI needs Shannon to keep one of his scams in play to bag the big bad guy who was financing him. Once again a pawn in someone’s else game, Shannon will have to trust her instincts to survive both the peril threatening her—and the passion Noah reignites…

 

“Lucy Farago has an eye for detail, a heart for romance, and a voice as layered as her plot and characters!”–Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Meet The Author:

 

I didn’t set out to be a writer.

I went to university thinking I’d come out with a degree that would allow me to help people. And for a short time it did. But then I got married and had two children and 12-hour shifts were no longer an option. So I took a job as an office administrator and learned book keeping. When I had my third child, I chose to work from home and kept the books for my husband’s restaurants.

 

I’d been artsy all my life.

I wrote poetry and short stories in high school but never really considered it writing. It was just a way to express myself.

 

When the kids came along, I spent hours decorating their rooms, finding ways to incorporate whatever theme I’d come up with. I didn’t consider myself creative. I was just having fun.

 

Then we moved to a lovely village outside the city limits, and I found myself at home with a new baby and nothing to do. I was proficient at my bookkeeping and it took up little of my time. So I baked. Again, being creative never crossed my mind. I’d found something I enjoyed doing and I didn’t gain an ounce by sharing with my friends—letting them worry about the calories. Creative? Hey, I needed to stay busy.

 

No stranger to a gym, I learned I could get paid to workout. I became a fitness instructor. I’m known for the inventive ways I torture my members week after week. No creativity here. I’m just a sadist at heart.

 

I then rediscovered romance novels.

Karen Marie Moning became one of my favorite authors. On her website, she gave advice on how to become a writer, as did another of my favorites, Sherrilyn Kenyon. Me, a writer? Didn’t you have to go to school? Sure you did. I had friends who’d done just that. But I figured what the heck, and tinkered with a story. Getting published never crossed my mind. Again, this was just for fun, because I wasn’t trained to be a writer.

 

It was my husband who pointed out all the things I didn’t do to be creative. He encouraged me to go for it, to be a writer. I had my own hero and didn’t even realize it.

 

I joined the Romance Writer’s of America in 2007 and my local Canadian chapter shortly after that. In the summer of 2014, one year after I met my editor at the RWA conference in Atlanta, Kensington Publishing offered to publish my Women of Vegas series, and I signed with The Knight Agency. It may have taken me a little while to figure it out, but I am proud and happy to say I am a romance writer.
