An attack four years ago left him disfigured and in seclusion, hiding from reactions to his appearance and in safety from those who failed to kill him the first time.
Comfortable in his penthouse, managing his billion dollar businesses, he’s resigned himself to be alone, simply called The Beast among those who’ve dealt with him in the past.
Columbia Grey is a pseudo-activist trying to save her neighbourhood from a developer intent on levelling it to build apartment towers. She goes along with a plan to confront the CEO of the company on his own turf, to force him to listen to her demands…all in a pathetic attempt to impress a man she barely likes.
Little does she know, she’s taken herself into the mouth of the beast, a man familiar with death and destruction, sex and seduction, a man used to getting exactly what he wants and a man with nothing left to lose.
She’s a beauty, but will that be enough to tame the beast and save her life?

First installment of award-winning author Kristie Cook’s bestselling Soul Savers Series
Alexis Ames has a life full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.
When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.
Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.
Going Back for Romeo
Not Without Juliet
and Collecting Isobelle
Jillian is an American lured back to the 15th century to rescue a plaid-clad Romeo and Juliet before their story can end in tragedy. The monster standing in her way, however, is a handsome Highlander who might just be her own Romeo…a Romeo she must leave behind.
Montgomery would prefer to go down in history as the heartless creature rather than betray his secrets. But when he falls in love with the prophesied faery who has come to expose him, he’ll have to learn a wee lesson from the star-crossed lovers or suffer the fate to which he once condemned them.
Juliet has a hit man, the FBI, a long-lost sister, and a handful of handsome Highlanders hunting her through time. But she’s not going back until she gets what’s hers. And her hunters won’t go back either–not without Juliet.

When Juliet and Quinn find they are meant for each other, they’ll have to maneuver around a centuries-old curse and a villain with a higher purpose of his own–or everything they want will be out of their hands forever.
If burying her alive didn’t bring her to her senses, what will?

It will be a simple thing, surely, to keep her from reaching beneath his armor…

NAUGHTY MOMS’ REVIEW
As a new blogger, I’m still getting by bearings and learning the mechanics of the blogging business. I started by signing up to do ARC reviews of a couple books and signed up with Callie Hart to review Fracture. When I received the ARC to review I learned it was in fact a follow up to Deviant (Blood and Roses). So to familiarize myself with the story line and characters, I looked into downloading Callie’s first book. Because I’m a self-confessed Kindle eBook hoarder, I found out I’d already purchased this book and it was in line to be read. *yay me*. So I immediately hopped to it.

But is it enough? Chelsie’s been hurt before and Griff isn’t sure he can trust the woman who once tried to take his niece away. What will it take for them to realize they are … perfect partners?

I’m intrigued by him.
But I can’t get close to him either.
His music strokes my soul, butchers my broken heart.
I wish he’d see me, but he only sees her. It’s been so long since I’ve had to care that I’m not sure I can do it anymore. Now, tell me, why is there a gun to my head?
Sydney Charell is … interesting.
I want to touch her, kiss her, posses her.
But I don’t understand her.
She dances on poles and can’t carry a tune to save her life.
I feel like an outsider on the in, but I have too many secrets to hide. Naomi Knox has my heart, but I think I might need it back. I want a chance to use it before it breaks. Or splatters. Blood will be spilled; I just hope it isn’t mine.
