Blurb: 

My body’s made of iron. 

My muscles are sculpted by God himself.

And my green eyes have been described as ‘lady magnets’ by the Vegas Tribune. 

The Trifecta sensation is only the dirtiest male revue show Vegas has ever seen. We’ve been blazing the stage for a while and have gained quite the fan base. Women travel from across the country just to catch a glimpse of us. 

I’ll let you in on a little secret…I hate every second of it. 

It’s just not me.

I despise being viewed as a piece of meat.

When my new neighbor, Emma moves in next door, I hate that she sees me the same way. 

But, when her and her daughter are in danger, a possessive need to protect her takes over. 

The more I get to know Emma, the more I realize she’s more like me than I realize. And I won’t let her past stand in the way of our future.

Crowne Rules by CD Reiss Release Blitz

“Dante is a Dominant male hero who steals your breath in all the right ways.” —Joey W. Hill 

Crowne Rules, an all-new deliciously  decadent forced proximity standalone from New York Times bestselling author C.D. Reiss is available now!

What happens when fire and ice are forced into close proximity?

With the paparazzi hot on her heels, Mandy Bettencourt is desperate for somewhere to hide, and her best friend has just the place.

It’s perfect. No Internet. No phone. A deep bathtub she’s soaking in when HE shows up.

Her best friend’s brother, Dante Crowne. Rich as a cardinal sin and handsome enough to piss off the devil. A man with a reputation for unforgettable bedroom games. 

Mandy got an early taste of them in high school–for seven minutes in a closet. She can tell you, the rumors are all true.

Dante knows he’s got a reputation for a lot of things, including a love of solitude.

But there’s a beautiful socialite in his bathtub, and the memory of those seven minutes isn’t inspiring him to kick her out.

So he offers her a deal.

If she wants to stay, she has to work.

If she makes a mistake, she’s corrected with pink hand marks on her backside.

That’s the deal. 

Beg for it or leave it.

He’s surprised when she gets on her knees, and he’s even more surprised when she likes the punishment.

The most shocking thing, though, is how much he’s starting to like her.

They can’t stay in paradise forever. 

Los Angeles awaits.

But an old nemesis sets his sights on tearing them apart, and Dante may be the one left begging.

**Crowne Rules is a complete STANDALONE. You don’t have to read any of the Crowne Brothers books to pick this up, but you might want to once you’re done with Dante.**

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

New Review: Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Hot New Review!

Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Release Date: September 20th

About the Book:

I treat eating pancakes on patios like it’s a personality trait.

Brunch is my jam. I like the beach, shopping, carbs, and reading naughty books on the train during my commute. I wear pink. Lots of it. If Tinder were an Olympic sport, I’d take home the gold. I can rock stilettos like they’re a pair of Nike joggers. I’m basically basic.

I’m in the prime of my life. I’ve got my dream job as the head of marketing, and I’ve been steadily dating myself for the better half of the last decade. I’m thirty, flirty, and thriving.

Or at least I was, until some jerk had the audacity to turn me into a vampire.

I don’t do blood and doom and gloom. I sure as hell don’t like sleeping in a coffin, avoiding garlic bread, and these ridiculous vamp politics. And don’t get me started on Diego. He’s vampire royalty and a pain in my butt. A very sexy pain in the butt. When he’s not driving me crazy with all his rules, he’s turning my panties into Niagara falls.

I absolutely refuse to live the rest of my immortal life in some wannabe nineties grunge music video.

This SUCKS!

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2020

Well This Sucks is one of the wittiest vampire romances I have ever read, complete with the sassiest heroine I have come across in a really long time!

The unstoppable duo of CoraLee June and Carrie Gray have taken the vampire trope and turned it on its head. It isn’t the same story all of us have read before. It’s smart, sexy and full of fantastic characters.

Here’s a little background. Drew is probably the unluckiest person when it comes to dating. As the story opens, it seems her streak is continuing in dating losers. However, our girl is talented in running off losers. Her night looks like it is looking up with a hook-up in the alley with her sexy waiter. Imagine her surprise, when she ends up being a midnight snack for said waiter’s grandma. Luck is on her side, depending on how you look at it, that she doesn’t die and instead becomes one of the undead. 

Drew catches the eye of the king of vampires, Diego. He is drawn to her for some reason as she is to him. Who wouldn’t be? The man exudes sex appeal. Our sassy heroine doesn’t care how sexy he is. She has always played by her rules, and she is determined to continue doing so. She doesn’t care about vampire rules or politics. 

The banter and chemistry between these two is both funny and electric. My favorite part of the book is the nuances tucked between the pages…like the wonderful power and strength of women which is perfectly embodied in Drew. When you add the spunky Betty, the grandma vampire, she shows us that age really is just a number.

This talented duo of writers continues to amaze me. I have read so many different genres from them this year, and each one is brilliant. They continue to prove to their readers that they can’t be boxed into just one genre. So, ladies, continue conquering the writing world…y’all rock!!!!

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

Hopeful Hearts at Glendale Hall (Glendale Hall #3) by Victoria Walters

Hopeful Hearts at Glendale Hall

by Victoria Walters

About the Book

What happens when love takes you to unexpected places?

Heather Douglas appears to have it all. But living on a farm in the Scottish Highlands with her partner, Rory Fraser, all while bringing up their adorable toddler, Harry, isn’t easy. As a former librarian, Heather is worried that she’ll never fully fit into life on Fraser Farm. And after the death of her beloved mum five years ago, Heather feels lost, as well as guilty for holding back accepting Rory’s marriage proposal because she can’t imagine her wedding without her mother.

So when ex-boyfriend, Stewart, appears in the village of Glendale, it’s a shock to the system. The man who broke her heart years ago now has big plans for the neighbouring farm and wants Heather to be part of the development. Knowing that she’s living a very different life to the one they had planned at university leaves Heather wondering if she has made the right choices since she and Stewart broke up. Especially when things start to go very wrong on the farm …

This Christmas, Heather will need to face her fears and let go of the past or risk losing everything. She will need love, faith, and a whole lot of hope!

Return to the beautiful Highlands village of Glendale with the latest book in the bestselling Glendale series – the perfect cosy, uplifting, romantic read for fans of Heidi Swain, Milly Johnson and Holly Martin.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

What a charming and emotional read!

Heather seems to have a life most women would be envious of. She has a doting boyfriend, Rory, and a beautiful baby boy, Harry. She lives on a picturesque farm, working with Rory. However, Heather is also struggling. She always worries about not ever fitting in on the farm, especially since this life is completely out of her comfort zone. She has always struggled with anxiety, but losing her mother years ago seems to have made it harder to manage. When her ex shows up in Glendale, it only complicates things for her, making her question every decision she has ever made.

I loved the characters, even the secondary ones! Heather stole my heart because I live with anxiety as well. Like her, you do feel like you are alone in your emotions at times. I admired her strength and determination. Rory had a way of calming her and steadying her when she needed him. He was the perfect match for her, even if she sometimes felt she didn’t belong with him.

While this is a romance, it was so much more! I liked that the couple was together from the beginning. That is something quite different than a lot of others in the genre. I liked seeing what happens after the couple get together! In addition, it was also a story about a woman finding her place in the world. A book can’t get much better than that!!!!!

Jess is planning the party of the decade and with the champagne and cocktails flowing, sparks are going to fly…and not just from the fireworks display!

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

What a delightful, charming little book! It’s filled with all the things I love….romance, emotion, and friendship!

Poor Milla has had a terrible time of it lately. She has lost her fiance to her friend and business partner. To top it off, her so-called friend has just given birth to a baby with her ex. She definitely needs some time away, so she returns home to recharge. She has no clue how that one decision will change the direction of her life, both professionally and personally.

Not only is this a romance, but the theme of friendship and support is seen throughout. Milla’s tribe, including Nic have helped her heal and learn to love herself. Even though she feels like she hasn’t helped Nic’s tortured soul, she really has. Is that enough for them to find their HEA? I sure did enjoy watching them fall for each other even if they didn’t realize it at the time.

I have read a couple of other books in the series, but you don’t have to read the others to understand what is happening in this one. I love the way Linfoot writes. She puts you right in the story she is telling, and I felt like I was a part of the group. The setting is so beautiful and descriptive. I could see the charming town and even smell the salt in the air. It is a great little book to take you away from reality for a while!

I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines, and lots of heart. Writing is fab, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a cottage up a mountain road in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

Make her all mine.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

No one does dark romance, chemistry, and emotion quite like Rina Kent! The series is “hands down” one of my very favorites!!!!

I knew Cole was going to be a surprise, and I was right. Kent didn’t disappoint. Behind his quiet facade is a much darker boy than I imagined, but man is he irresistible and infuriating. I could see exactly why Silver hated him. He lived to torment her, but as I read their story, I realized it wasn’t for the reasons I thought it was.

Cole and Silver are pretty perfect for one another. They were always in competition with one another. If they weren’t competing for first place, they were constantly arguing or insulting one another. Yet, their story was filled with love and emotion.

Both Cole and Silver had their issues. I won’t delve too deep into them because I will not reveal any spoilers because there are plenty of twists and surprises in store for you. I will tell you Silver puts on the mask of coldness and popularity, but it is her way of having control. As she says, “It means I get to keep all my pieces together.”

Cole likes control as well, but he expresses it in a very different way. He uses it to control other people. When these two come together, it’s like a burning inferno. They have a past, and I liked that Kent included flashbacks to really help understand their complicated relationship.

As with all her other books, there is darkness, but she always gives her characters light. Her writing is beautiful, almost poetic at times. That is what makes Rina Kent so special!!!!

LEO by Jay McLean is live!! Don’t miss the third book in the New Adult/Coming of Age Series, The Preston Brothers!!

BLURB

One single summer changed them forever, and one moment of devastating silence destroyed it all. 

Growing up with six siblings, Leo Preston has always struggled to find his voice.

While his brothers are loud, greedy, and somewhat obnoxious, Leo is forever the quiet one.

The thinker. 

The listener. 

He watches his life pass by as an outsider in his own world, absent and alone. 

Lost.

Until he finds her. 

For Leo, Mia Kovács is like a prize, a gift wrapped in passion and devotion.

And she’s his—his very own secret he doesn’t have to share. 

Together, they can overcome anything…

heartache and destruction, guilt and regret. 

Mia gives Leo everything he didn’t know he needed, 

including her fragile heart. 

The only thing she doesn’t give him… 

are secrets of her own. 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

“I used to think of you as my sunrise, but in that moment, I realized you were the sun, the stars, the moon, the sky, the ground, and everything in between.” ~Leo~

Leo is one of my top 10 reads of 2020 and an all-time favorite read!!!!

How do you review a book that is beyond words? How do you give it the accolades it so richly deserves? I’m going to do my best, and I’m sure I will fall short!

One summer changes everything for Leo and Mia. Both have their own issues, and they find in each other, someone who sees them for who they are deep down in their souls. They are really just children entering puberty. This is just the very beginning of their journey to discovering themselves as individuals and as a couple. McLean doesn’t rush that journey; that is what makes this book so incredibly special. The book takes place over many years, and I LOVED that!!!

Leo is so completely different from his brothers. While they are loud and can be obnoxious, Leo is the quiet one, always watching and listening. There are times he doesn’t know where he fits in with his family. Mia struggles with abandonment and rejection.These things will impact their future. However, when life throws them curveballs, and boy does it throw them curveballs, they always seem to find their way back to one another.

McLean is a born storyteller. All the ingredients of romance and emotion come together perfectly. She knows how to make you cry tears of sadness and tears of absolute joy. If that wasn’t enough, she threw in some twists I was NOT expecting!!! In addition, she writes so beautifully. If you look carefully, you will see the deeper parts of her writing…the symbolism she uses to tell her readers the story of these two very special characters.

Leo and Mia’s story is one that consumed me…heart and soul! It is one of those rare, rare books that you want to take your time and devour it because the only regret you will have is when you read the very last page!

Excerpt

Harry found himself standing in the doorway of the church reception hall. There were a bunch of people milling about, most with red cups in their hands. “For a crazy old lady she drew quite a crowd.”

“Oh, everyone comes out for funerals in these parts,” Cal admitted as he made his way to the big crystal punch bowl and got himself a cup. “There’s not a lot else to do so weddings and funerals are big social events.” He took a long drink. “And, damn, but Zep’s got a heavy hand with the rum. There’s way more rum than punch. The Guidrys might be trash, but trash around here usually knows how to party.”

He wasn’t sure he liked his cousin referring to anyone as trash, but he didn’t know the family well. He did know he’d heard the name Guidry from his aunt’s mouth and it was obvious she didn’t think much of them. “I think I’ll try the lemonade.”

“Suit yourself.” Cal refilled and looked around the crowd. “Introduce yourself around. I’m going to see what Josette has going on. Now there’s a woman I could spend some time with. Some fun time.”

His cousin winked and walked off toward a slender blonde.

He was rapidly discovering his cousin was a bit of a douchebag.

“You’re the new guy.”

He turned to find his own pretty blonde staring up at him. She was petite, barely coming up to his shoulders, and he would bet half her weight was in that hair. It flowed past her shoulders almost to her waist, and there was so much of it. Thick, honey-colored silk. Sky blue eyes found his own and held him there. Her arms were crossed over her chest and he noted that she was drinking the lemonade.

“How do you know that? Maybe I’ve been here all along and no one’s noticed me.”

Her nose wrinkled sweetly. “Oh, they all notice you. That’s how I know you’re the new guy. Welcome to Papillon. I came over to give you fair warning. I think single people need to stick together in an effort to stay single despite the societal pressure to give in to the patriarchy. If my mother tries to convince you to let me show you around, she’s really trying to find me a husband.”

Oh, but he might not mind her showing him the town. Beyond being gorgeous, he liked the sass she was throwing his way. He was self-aware enough to admit that women had come easy to him. He wasn’t hard on the eyes, but finding one who got him was a different story. “That seems to be a theme. The church secretary already tried to have her granddaughter show me around.”

A single brow rose over those heavenly eyes of hers. “Debra? Yeah, you have to be careful with her.”

“I’ve heard she’s handsy.” He nodded. “And she talks a lot.”

“Yeah, she also drinks a lot more than Helena will admit, and she’s started a couple of spectacular bar fights. She likes to pit her suitors against each other and make them fight for her.”

“Good to know.” He glanced around and sure enough, every eye was on him. “Well, I don’t suppose you would show me around. Maybe if you showed me around, people would stop offering up their daughters. I noticed no one has asked me if their sons could show me the town. Do the men of Papillon not know their way around?”

“Well, you could say that about a lot of them. But no, it’s because there aren’t many available men and when a new one comes to town it’s like a medieval parade of who has the best dowry. You need to remember that whatever my momma tells you, I’ve got no dowry whatsoever. I come with a lot of baggage. Tons of baggage.” She gasped as though she’d just had a thought. “Unless you would rather have a nice man show you around our town. I hadn’t considered that and it was awfully backward thinking of me. I know a great guy. His name is Michael Hendricks and he’s such a doll. You would get along so well.”

Whoa. That had taken a turn. She was smiling, and that smile took her from beautiful to gorgeous. That smile kind of lit up his world, but she was working under a big misconception. “I’m comfortable with women showing me the sights. Did you get excited about setting me up with your friend?”

A hand cupped her hip, and the sass factor went sky high. “Is there a reason you wouldn’t like my friend?”

He had to chuckle. This one was obviously a fierce warrior. “I’m sure I would like him but I would only like him, not like like him because I like women. Like like them.”

The cutest frown came over her face. “You’re a confusing man.”

“So I’ve been told.” Oh, he liked her. A lot. She would be a ton of fun, and not in the way Cal meant it. He would very much enjoy getting to know this woman. “How about tomorrow? It’s Sunday. I can take the afternoon off.”

Her eyes widened. “Are you hitting on me at my great-aunt’s funeral?”

He had probably gone a nice shade of red. He hadn’t thought this through, and he definitely hadn’t realized she was related to the deceased. He thought she was one of those people who’d come for the gumbo. “Well, that would be rude of me so no, I am not.”

She looked him up and down. “It would be rude, and I was only coming over to warn you that my mom will likely try to trick you into dating me. Don’t fall for it.”

She turned on her heels and started to walk away.

“Hey, you didn’t even tell me your name. How will I know who to avoid if you don’t tell me your name?”

She glanced back, that blonde hair swaying. “Seraphina Guidry. Remember it so we don’t have to go through all of this again. Welcome to Papillon, Mr. Jefferys. I hope you enjoy your stay.”

Excerpt

“Please, Bren,” Jordan whispered.

I sagged, hearing his plea.

If I didn’t stop, he’d start. I had to stop. I had to stop for him.

“We have to go. It’s done.” That was Cross, but he was the leader speaking now. “Get her in the truck.”

Jordan carried me over. Zellman hopped up and Jordan lifted me to him. I could’ve climbed up myself, but there was something about my crew doing this for me. Handling me. They needed to do this, and a part of me needed to let them.

I glanced back as Jordan was climbing up, coming behind us.

Cross was bent over the guy. He was talking to him. A second later, he pulled his phone out, punching some numbers. Then the phone was back in his pocket, and he was coming for the truck. His eyes held mine for a brief moment before he got behind the wheel.

Cross drove us back as Zellman and Jordan huddled on both sides of me.

My hands were still bleeding, but no one moved to cover them.

That felt fitting, for some reason.

Just let me bleed.
