Steve McCoy survived a harrowing youth and a horrible tragedy and still made it as a successful attorney and businessman. And he’s managed to keep his broken, battered heart under wraps by working with short-term submissives at his popular BDSM club, Eden’s Gate.


Until Kelly Markham came along. Kelly’s history was as bad or worse than Steve’s. She lost the only man she ever loved, a faithful, loving Dom, but she never lost hope. When she’s invited to visit Eden’s Gate, she feels like she’s finally found a home. Better yet, she finds a man who’ll help her reintegrate into the community, even if his help is only offered for one month.


Unfortunately, Kelly discovers that being Steve’s submissive is not easy. Matter of fact, when she accidentally trips a trigger from Steve’s history, being his submissive could actually be dangerous, even deadly. Steve’s determined to keep her at a distance and never show her his heart, but can he hold out when he realizes his best shot at a happily ever after might not survive?

BLOG TOUR: A Girl Walks Into A Wedding by Helena S. Paige

 

Title: A GIRL WALKS
INTO A WEDDING: Your Fantasy, Your Rules
Genre: Erotica
By Helena S. Paige
Release Date:  5/27/2014
SYNOPSIS:
 
The wedding has just begun and every decision you make can
leave you satisfied… or craving more in this funny and sexy novel in which
you make the rules…
YOU are invited to a
wedding. As you try on what must be the ugliest bridesmaid dress (and that is
saying a lot) you realize so much can go wrong with this event. Your best
friend needs to know NOW if you are bringing a date. So what is a girl to do?
Do you bring the sexy guy you have only gone on one date with, or do you brave
it and go alone?

 

In this novel, you make the decisions. Will your dream date
turn out to be a dud? Will the best man find a way under your ugly dress? Will
the bachelorette party end with a bang or a fizzle? Will the wedding even
happen at all? Will your decision leave you pleasantly satisfied or
disappointed and yearning for more? All of these experiences are awaiting you
at the beautiful country estate. Now all you must do is choose…
****************************
It’s your fantasy. Your rules.
The choice is all yours. . . .
Your best friend is getting married and she’s asked you to be a
bridesmaid. You have so many decisions to make. . . .
·
Do you ask the gorgeous but mysterious man you just met to come as
your date?
·
Or do you go solo?
·
Once the wedding weekend gets under way, will you ditch your date?
Get down and dirty with the hot DJ? Dodge the disreputable best man?
·
Or perhaps the rugged pilot you meet in the bar will open up
unexpected erotic opportunities—and who knew the maid of (dis)honor had such a
sultry streak?
You also have to navigate through the bachelorette party, the
bride’s wedding jitters, the dress from hell, and more. Perhaps the most
tempting option is to flee the entire affair with a tall, dark stranger . . .
or maybe an old friend who could surprise you with a sizzling encounter.
You make the decisions—a wild ride is guaranteed.
Here’s
a brief excerpt—it’s hard to give you more, because of the interactive nature
of the text. However, there is an app available for 5 excerpts from the book
that simulate the choose your own experience. I’d love it people could post
about it, too: 
EXCERPT:
Dear
Reader,
This
isn’t a regular novel with a set beginning, middle and end. This is your story,
and you’re in charge. Of your life, your sexuality, your fantasies.
So
here’s how it works: at the end of every scene, you’ll be given a choice, with
instructions to turn to the page that corresponds with your selection. It’s
simple: YOU pick what you want to do, where you want to go, who you want to be
with. There are no right or wrong decisions. Just keep turning or clicking
through to the pages, and you’re guaranteed a wild ride that you shape and
control.
Wondering
“what if”? Want to try something different? Unlike in life, here you can press
the “reset” button. Just click or flip back the pages to the previous fork in
the road, pick something different, and head out on a new adventure.
Because
remember: it’s your fantasy, your rules.
Enjoy!
Helena
S. Paige

********************************
All
women know that bridesmaids’ dresses are a secret plot of the devil. No matter
how much your best friend, sister or cousin promises she will not dress you up
as The Bride of Frankenstein on Disco Night, odds are you’ll be walking down
the aisle swathed in the kind of fabric used to upholster sofas, in the one
color designed to make you look jaundiced.
But you’re not feeling any pre-bridesmaid’s dress fitting panic
today. Jane is your oldest friend in the world, and you know she’d never expect
you to wear a monstrosity. You’ve seen pictures of what she has in mind for you
– a tasteful slip-dress in a harmless dark-blue satin.
‘Champagne?’ a shop assistant asks, holding out a tray of glasses, the bubbles
racing to pop out of the top of each glass.
‘Yes please,’ says Cee Cee, Jane’s older sister and maid of honor, appearing
beside you and taking a glass. Cee Cee adores weddings – in fact, as a wedding
planner, she makes a living out of them. You’re a little worried she might be
infecting Jane with too much bridezilla hysteria and over-the-topness – most of
the events she presides over make the last royal wedding look like an elopement
followed by a piss-up in the local pub – but you have to admit, she’s a great
organizer.
‘Have you seen Jane’s dress?’ you ask, sinking into one of the luxurious
armchairs set in front of a wall of mirrors and a little podium, designed for
optimum dress viewing.
‘Not yet! But I can’t wait,’ Cee Cee says, settling down in the
chair next to yours, eyes shining. ‘And you will just die when Jane
tells you about my idea for the bridesmaids’ dresses!’
That sounds rather alarming. You’re about to ask for details, but
then Jane steps out of the dressing room, closely followed by a mountain of
fabric, the bridal shop proprietor fussing over the train of the dress.
‘Oh my God, Jane!’ you say.

Little does he know she’s no Southern Belle, as she gives as good as she can take. As unexpected circumstances push them closer together, heads butt, patience is tested, and flames ignite as they dance around their mutual attraction, both of them jaded from broken pasts.

RELEASE BLITZ/TOUR: Delight by Lexi Buchanan

Delight, McKenzie Brothers, Book 3

Delight 03

Blurb

Kenza nightclub owner, Ruben McKenzie can have any woman he wants, but the only woman he wants is Rosie—his sweet innocent employee, who happens to be eleven years his junior. Watching her parade her hot little body around his club, serving drinks completely unaware of the attention she attracts is driving him to distraction. But when he sees a regular getting close to her, all bets are off.

Rosie has had more than enough life experience, but when it comes to matters of the heart—the one place that Ruben wants in—she’s completely innocent. Having no family of her own, it’s a dream to be invited to a McKenzie family gathering. Rosie always wanted to belong to a family like the McKenzie’s, but she’s afraid that if she gives her heart to Ruben and things don’t work she’ll be crushed, beyond repair.

Neither one of them may be able to keep their distance for long. The trouble that has been brewing at Kenza finally comes to a head, and when Rosie finds herself caught up in it, how far will Ruben go to protect her?

~*~*~*~

In this third installment of the McKenzie Brothers series you’ll learn more about the two remaining brothers, Lucien and Ramon. New players, Hunter and Julian, will be introduced.

None of my books have cliffhangers and they can be read as standalone, but to get the full background on the rest of the family then I do suggesting reading Seduce, The Wedding and Rapture first.

Excerpt

Turning, I start walking upstairs with an added sway to my hips. Halfway up, I nearly stumble when I feel his hands on my hips, and then I do stumble and end up on my hands and knees on the stairs when he bites me on the bottom.
I can’t think, his hands are everywhere; on my breasts, my belly, my hips, and my legs before he moves under my skirt and rubs me between my thighs. Moaning, I drop forward with Ruben following me.
“You’re so wet. Have you got any idea how hot it is, knowing I make you so wet? I need to taste you.”
Ruben wraps his arms around my waist and hauls me up a few more stairs to the landing. Turning me in his arms, he lays me down and stays kneeling on the stairs between my spread legs.
My skirt is around my hips as Rubens slides his hands up my thighs to my panties, which he rips from my body. Holding them to his nose, he closes his eyes and inhales before shoving them into his pocket.
He strokes between my nether lips, coating his fingers in my wetness—driving me crazy. Losing all inhibitions, I yank my shirt over my head, following it with my bra.
“Fuck, Rosie,” Ruben hisses staring at my breasts.
Wanting to tease him, I bring my hands up and play with my nipples as I hear Ruben cussing before he inserts a finger inside me. I arch up from the floor in pleasure, not wanting him to stop.
My hands drop from my breasts when I feel Ruben’s very talented mouth on me—his tongue lapping me up before darting in and out of my channel.
Threading my fingers into his hair, he holds my quivering thighs open while he goes to town on me. I’ve never come this way before, but I feel the ball of fire gathering in my belly—the tightening in my nipples…

RELEASE BLITZ+BLOG TOUR: Various States of Undress by Laura Simcox




Genre: Contemporary
Romance
Release Date:  5/27/2014




PURCHASE LINKS:
AMAZON *B&N




SYNOPSIS:

What happens when the president’s daughter and her sexy
Secret Service agent find themselves snowbound? A little cabin fever, some serious
forbidden attraction, and Various States of Undress…

When Carolina Fulton, daughter of the President of the
United States, dumps her cheating fiancé, she knows she needs a break from life
in Washington. Spending some quality alone time in her family’s Wyoming cabin
seems like a perfect escape-except for the hot Secret Service agent who shadows
her every move. Miles away from civilization, Carolina quickly realizes that
ignoring the smoky eyes, carved chin, and mile-wide pair of shoulders is going to
require more than a little self-control.

Elite agent Jake Baxter knows better than to develop
feelings for his clients. After all, he’s not being paid to fantasize about
running his fingers through Carolina’s dark hair, kissing her senseless, or
waking up next to her petite, curvy body. But as a blizzard rages outside their
all-too-cozy cabin, Jake knows he has to put the freeze on this attraction,
lest his job-or his heart-is suddenly laid on the line. 








EXCERPT:


“What do we do now?” she asked, knowing it was an invitation.
And not caring. The door was locked. The alarm was on. No eyes were prying and
no cameras were flashing. Nobody was judging her, and she felt safe. Safe from
everything, except herself—but she could handle herself. Being competent was
her signature character trait.

“We shouldn’t,” he said.

She leaned forward and slid her fingers down his arms until she
clasped his warm hands. “I’m so aware of that fact, it’s painful.” She tipped
her head back. “But right now, I don’t care.” Rising up, she loosened her
fingers, wrapped her arms around his strong neck and pulled him toward her.
“Okay?”

His hands moved to splay around her ribcage. “No. It’s not
okay.” Then he lifted her up until her breasts were nestled against his chest.
And his mouth descended on hers, sending tendrils of fire racing through her
middle. As her eyes slid shut, she had the strangest feeling that she was
sinking. And she didn’t want it to stop.





AUTHOR BIO:

After spending years in professional theater as a costume
designer, Laura Simcox eased out of the hectic whirlwind of opening nights and
settled in a comfy desk chair to write romance. She believes that life is too
short not to appreciate heartwarming, quirky humor and her novels are

BOOK BLURB/SYNOPSIS
Benedict Nowak bailed on his marriage, taking his son with him but leaving behind his five year old daughter. He had his reasons. He had no idea they’d come back to haunt him.

TJ had come to terms with the mother she despised, making those small concessions that made life bearable. But her mother’s death changed everything.

Her brother, Anton, was the parent missing in TJ’s life, until he found a calling in violence, and left his sister at the mercy of shrinks and a mother with ice in her veins.

Roman Rincon was the juvie rescued by Father Marcus and placed in the care of Benedict Nowak. With his records sealed, no one knew what happened that fateful night when Roman was only fourteen. All Father Marcus knew was the boy had confessed to a crime not even the cops would talk about.

In the small coal mining town of Montville, two teens whose lives have been shattered beyond repair must find a way to cope … with school, with each other, with growing up marked as broken in a town dying under the weight of secrets and lies.

Warned off having anything to do with Roman, TJ is all too willing to agree, except for one little thing. The young man lives in the apartment above her father’s car repair business so avoiding him might be a problem.

As for Roman, he will take his secret to the grave, no matter what the cost.

EXCERPT
Forced into making decisions no young girl should ever make, TJ must deal with her conflicted feelings for a mother who cared only for her career and a father who turned his back on his responsibilities. When TJ’s mother dies, the teen must go live with a father who is a stranger, in a town dying under the weight of poverty and ethnic divisions.
TJ’s father, Benedict Nowak, has given Roman Rincon sanctuary. Fresh out of three years in juvie, the only friend Roman has is Father Marcus. The priest convinced the court to remand the troubled teen to Benedict’s supervision. Roman has to keep his head down and his nose clean.

This excerpt is the scene when TJ finally gets to meet the elusive teen.

*****

“Come on in, Roman. I want you to meet…” Ben waved in her direction, “…my daughter, TJ.”

The teen stared, eyes a flat obsidian, framed by impossibly long lashes, the thick brownish black brows creased into a single, disapproving line. Deepset, those eyes were all she could focus on, commanding her undivided attention.

Ben rattled on, “TJ stands for Theresa Jane…”

Throat dry, TJ mouthed a ‘hi’ but it died before her lips could form the word. To her surprise her father wasn’t filling in the blanks like she might have expected, spilling all her particulars.

No … her mother just passed. I’m all she has. Well, Tony also. But Tony’s gone, back to his unit. She’ll be going to the high school. We’ll see the prin—

Instead he’d turned back to his task, shoulders rigid with tension. TJ wondered why.

But then she looked closer at the man hiding behind a boy’s lean and lanky frame, at the sharp planes of his high cheekbones, the cruel set to lips just on the edge of full, a hint of a dimple offset by the tilt of his head that spoke to defiance and self-sufficiency.

The hoodie masked all but his face. Short sideburns shadowed by the fleece suggested raven dark hair. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he wore it long, perhaps in a tail. He wasn’t as tall as her father or Tony, maybe five eleven, but she’d thought him bigger the way he commanded a room, like he’d emptied it of air and filled it with his presence, something physical … and something not. That something seemed to hover in the air currents, leaving her feeling like cannon fodder in a bad horror movie.

She felt the catch in her lungs, the sensation of menace, but refused to look away. She knew all about turf wars from her mother: the legal kind with briefs and a quick wit, the other with self-actualization on each side of a tennis court, the advantage always Eleanore. Mostly she knew about negotiating. About trade-offs. Being bought. Staying out of the way. Rigging the balance sheet so losses looked less like failure and more like incremental skirmishes.

Eleanore cooked the legal ledgers to get what she wanted. TJ leaned toward a slightly different interpretation but both had understood a zero sum game.

Roman had that very special knowledge also. But one thing about him was different: he needed no one, he feared nothing. Of that she was one hundred percent sure.

When he turned away and left without a word, she and Ben breathed a sigh of relief.

 

MY REVIEW 

I was intrigued by the synopsis for this story as I’m a big fan of the Paranormal genre, be it television, movies and now books; however, it pains me to say that I wasn’t able to get into this story as I had hoped. The book started off too past faced leaving me confused. Characters were introduced so quickly and I was losing track of who was who at first. Internal monologues threw me off. I couldn’t tell if the characters were remembering past conversations or just pondering to themselves. I also had a difficulty relating to the characters; which made it difficult for me to follow along with the story and feel for these characters. I neither liked nor disliked TJ and Roman, I just didn’t feel an instant connection with them as I have with past reads. I had high hopes for this read and it’s possibly just me but I wasn’t a fan. Everyone has their preferences and I know this book received many 5 star reviews but based on my experience with this story, I’m only able to give it 3.5. It pains me to do so as this is my first 3.5 review.

AUTHOR BIO
Kennedy Streath writes with gritty realism, exploring that intersect where the paranormal and the suspension of disbelief take a back seat to the power of the spirit and the raw edges of conflicted souls. He moves to the backbeat that’s a heartbeat, blending action, suspense and intensely sensual romance.

Kennedy lives in the country with horses to ground that spectre of disquiet that haunts us all and holds to a belief in the promise of the young and young at heart.
