Captured by Jasinda Wilder and Jack Wilder New Cover and Paperwhite Giveaway

Captured Jasinda Wilder cover

Love is never easy. It's especially difficult when you love a career Marine. I knew the risk when I said "I do", but I chose to love Thomas anyway. War took him from me, and now I'm alone. Struggling and desperate. There's no hope, no future. Just the endless cycle of day-to-day survival. But a letter returned will change all of that. Hope and companionship, and even love, often come from the last place you'd think to look, when you least expect it. * * * I was a lost, broken soul, a Marine tortured by the memories of what I'd endured. When I visited that old farmhouse in rural Texas, all I wanted to do was return the letter. Keep a promise. What I got was healing. Understanding. The chance to find a measure of peace when all I've ever known is war. We both lost everything. But in each other, we found something worth fighting for. *repost--you can still enter the … (continue reading)

Exclusive Excerpt of BEAST by Ella James with Signed Paperback Giveaway

Beast Ella James

I just finished Ella James' last erotic fairy tale, Red & Wolfe (parts 1-4, click the link for part 1--FREE) and really enjoyed it (review to come). I love how she wrote her own story, but it had some definite similarities to Little Red Riding Hood. So creative! Now we have Beast, another erotic fairytale series based on Beauty and the Beast. I have the first chapter posted here, and the excerpt below. Beast is now LIVE! FROM HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY At twenty-one years old, third-generation movie star Cal Hammond was on top of the world. He had more money than God and more women than any man could need. But when a night of debauchery ends in tragedy, he forfeits a life of luxury for a ten-year prison sentence at La Rosa, California’s most violent prison. TO A BRUTAL BEAST Eight years later, a ruthless, cunning man runs La Rosa from the inside. He is known simply as BEAST. All … (continue reading)

Book Review – Captured by Jasinda Wilder and Jack Wilder with Signed Giveaway

Captured Jasinda and Jack Wilder

Captured by Jasinda Wilder and Jack Wilder Standalone Adult Contemporary. Related to Wounded. Wow. Captured was completely not what I expected and still completely amazing. Jasinda Wilder is the Queen of Intense Lovemaking, and believe me, there was some INTENSE lovemaking. I don't mean kinky or dirty, I don't even mean fucking. The connection between the partners was just so strong and deep (hehe) you couldn't help but feel it in their lovemaking. This review will be a little different than most. I really don't want to give anything away, so despite what I do say, I give nothing away. I didn't even read the blurb before this book and loved it. But I want to tell you, this is not a "war romance" like Wounded (which I absolutely LOVED), but this is more about a woman in love with a Marine. It's about what soldiers wives go through when their men are gone, it's about what the soldiers … (continue reading)

Book Review – Earning Yancy by C.C. Wood with signed giveaway

Earning Yancy

Earning Yancy (NSFW 2) by C.C. Wood 2nd in a standalone series.  Full Length Adult Contemporary. I love CC Wood's writing style. She blends funny, snarky, realistic, sexy and fun with great groups of girlfriends. Her novellas are always just perfect and leave nothing missing. The first in the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) series, the fun In Love with Lucy, was a novella, but I think the rest of the series of connected standalones, including Earning Yancy, will be full length. This was the perfect kind of light vacation book I needed when I was away. But I picked it up a few times, and it just didn't grab me enough for a vacation read, so I put it down until I returned home. When I restarted it, I still had a little trouble with the first chapter, since this series takes place in the workplace, there was a little too much about her job up front. But after that, it just kept getting … (continue reading)
