Full Blurb

He rejected her. She loathes him. Now they have to fool everyone and pretend they actually like each other.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he’s sowed his last wild oat.
Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London’s sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other’s throats.
Fate and a favour conspire to put Tanner and Belle back in each other’s paths and they’re forced to do a lot more than get along to save face and their careers.
Rage turns to passion and tempers run sizzling hot when they realise they aren’t just falling for each other—they’re jumping head first. And neither have the endurance to keep their hands to themselves.

Finding Mr. WrongFinding Mr. Wrong by A.M. Madden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Who Knew Something So Wrong Could Be So Right Stars!!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill


I'm a huge fan of both these authors independently so when I heard they were teaming up to co-write a book I did a little happy dance. What a successful first venture they've produced. I freaking loved this book!!! Soren is the type of guy that has it all going on, but thanks to his best friends he finds himself in a rather odd situation which results being on a desert island with Brae for over 40 days!

At first you're thinking, this is a regurgitation of a similar TV show, but it really isn't that...it's so much better than any reality TV I've ever watched! Brae is a woman that likes to be in control at all times, so being with someone so confident and sexy kept her on her toes...and other parts of her body too!!!

This book was written brilliantly. At no point was there a delineation as to which author was writing which parts and that's one of the more difficult tasks when co-authoring with someone. Ms. Madden and Ms. Schwehm made it look seamless. The dialogue was fast moving, hilarious and sexy. I found myself having difficulty putting this one down to you know, be in the real world.

If you're looking for a swoonworthy, laugh out loud, sexy read, Finding Mr. Wrong is the one for you. I for one can't wait to see what they come up with for Kyle and Luca!!!

A Broken Soul (The Pembrooke Series Book 3)A Broken Soul by Jessica Prince
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Are We Really Broken Stars!!!
Reviewed by Franci Neill


Somehow I made it through this beautifully and emotionally told story written by Ms. Prince. Quinn and Lilly are two people that are so emotionally beat-up that the thought of finding love and keeping it for a lifetime wasn't even on their radar, both for very different reasons.

Lilly is a beautiful and talented dancer and dance instructor who has received some of the worst news possible that literally could cripple her emotionally. My heart actually bled for her and the pain she was suffering. If I could have taken it away from her I would have. Quinn on the other hand is blaming himself for an accident that had reverberating consequences that for some reason he's let take over his life. And I get why he's doing it, but to let something that really was an accident dictate the rest of your life will prove to be a very lonely and angry life....

That is until he lets Lilly in just a little bit. Once she's there though, she's embedded and he needs to become okay with that. Because having someone to mend your broken heart is not only life saving, but it can lead to an all encompassing love unlike anything either of them have experienced to date.

The strength and beauty of the words that Jessica has given us allowed me to watch what was to be a friend helping a friend relationship develop into a powerful love that there was no escape from. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of times I was ranting and raving at one or both of them, because of their stubbornness and inability to let something go, but, let it go they did. This in turn allowed the bond and draw they felt for each other to burn brighter and stronger proving that when you open your heart and soul to the person that is meant to be yours, nothing is impossible and together you can conquer not only your worst fears but the world itself!

I'm sad that this is the last book in this series, but if it's truly the last one I'm satisfied that Quinn and Lilly's story brought this series to it's conclusion. I've loved the entire series, but their story is my favorite and will resonate in my heart for years to come.

RM-FB-on-sale-5       Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Pucked Off, an all-new emotional and sexy STANDALONE from Helena Hunting is LIVE!!

Pucked Off by Helena Hunting Genre: Contemporary Romance

businessman working on laptop  in black suit

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man. He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep. I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?” He doesn’t move. Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look. I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow. Sadly, he’s still hot. He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional. I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass. I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.” poan

Synopsis
Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed. Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager. Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet. And, not to mention, sexy as hell. Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses. When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe. The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men. The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him. The man who makes her want…more. But is more possible when you're OUT OF LOVE?

Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion, #3)Nine Kinds of Naughty by Jeanette Grey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, yes, yes, another new author for me to read! Although Jeanette Grey may not be a newer author in general, she is a new author to me. I just finished Nine Kinds of Naughty and I absolutely devoured it! Wow, just wow!!!

Recently I have been super lucky to have some amazing 5 star reads on my kindle. But for some reason this past week, I have not been able to find something to capture my attention. This all changed with one Dom named Dane Huntley.

Alexis Bellamy works along with her brother Rylan at Bellamy International. As one of the head people at Bellamy International, Alexis (Lexie) is hard working and driven to the point that she doesn't really even know who she is without her job. Dane Huntley is the lucky guy who is Lexie's assistant.

So now you are looking back at my review saying, "Didn't she say that Dane was a Dom?!?!" Yes, Dane is a Dom. And did you see that I also said that he was Lexie's assistant???

"How many times had he fantasized about seeing his perfectly put- together boss with her panties around her ankles and her hair a sexed- up mess?"
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Lexie's job calls her to Europe to finalize a deal. Being Lexie's asistant, Dane is required to go along. That is when the fun begins...

One hot Dom + One empty plane ride across the Atlantic = One hot ride

"You need this. Someone to take care of you. Someone who can pull you out of your goddamn head for a minute. Show you how to let go."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Dane strips Lexie down to her core and helps her become the person that she was born to be.

"You're so strong, Lexie. It's sexy as hell to watch you eviscerate a room full of businessmen. But it's okay to admit that it wears you out. It's okay to let yourself put it all down. Let somebody else carry the weight. And when you do? It means you pick it up again even stronger than you were before."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Watching Dane & Lexie discover and navigate their relationship was such a treat! This book completely filled my heart with warmth and love for these two characters.

Nine Kinds of Naughty is the third book in the Art of Passion series. Full disclosure, I did not read the first two books. The first two books feature Lexie's brother, Rylan. Although Rylan & Kate are in Nine Kinds of Naughty, you did not have to read their story to enjoy Dane & Lexie's story. I went and one clicked Seven Nights to Surrender (Art of Passion #1) & Eight Ways to Ecstasy (Art of Passion #2) right after I finished Nine Kinds of Naughty. I will be circling back to these books in the next few weeks. I can't wait!

Back to Dane & Lexie... I loved their story so much!!! I wish I could reread it for the first time again.

"Lexie might rule the boardroom, but she'd been born to be put on her knees."
~ Jeanette Grey, Nine Kinds of Naughty (Art of Passion #3)

Thank you Jeanette for allowing me to read Nine Kinds of Naughty prior to its release. Thank you also for writing these characters. This was the perfect book at the perfect time for me. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Oh, and Evan needs his own book! Please, please, pretty please!

CheckmateCheckmate by Rose Sawyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sometimes there are authors and books that you come across and you feel like you found a jewel and you want everyone to know about it. That is the case with the Stalemate series by Rose Sawyer. I have no words to tell you how much I loved this series.

Stalemate was released February 2016. I loved it! I will tell you that I originally gave it a 4 star rating. My main reason was because it had a major cliffhanger. If you have read any of my reviews, then you know that I HATE cliffies!!! I would rather wait for an entire series to come out and then binge read the series. That being side, I PM'ed the author on Facebook and let her know that I NEEDED to have Checkmate on my kindle as soon as it came out. I screamed when I saw the opportunity to read and review Checkmate!!!!! I so wish I was kidding. I needed the conclusion to Ellie & Alex's story.

Let me tell you, this series has to be one of my favorites that I have read in a very long time. Imagine Revenge (the TV show) meets a romance book.... Magic is made!

"There's a part of you that wants revenge so damn bad you're not willing to let your heart have its way."
~ Rose Sawyer, Stalemate (Stalemate, part 1)

Ellie Collins is on a mission to right the wrongs from her past. In order to do that Ellie needs to get close Alex King. While getting close to Alex, Ellie & Alex begin a relationship that Ellie has a hard time letting go of or walking away from.

"Alex ment so much more to her than anyone else ever had, and leaving him would mean leaving her heart with him."
~ Rose Sawyer, Stalemate (Stalemate, part 2)

As I said, Stalemate left us with a major cliffy....

"You were just a piece in a game I've been playing for a really long time. I needed you to get to someone else. I got to the place I needed to, and I don't need you anymore."
~ Rose Sawyer, Stalemate (Stalemate, part 2)

Again..... UGH!!!

Because it had almost been an entire year since I had spent time with Alex & Ellie, I had to do a complete re-read of Stalemate. I am so glad that I did. The flow between Stalemate & Checkmate was seamless. It flowed as one storyline. Checkmate was the perfect conclusion to Alex & Ellie's story.

One of the things that I loved about Checkmate was Alex's determination to be with Ellie.

"She had somehow needled her way into his heart, and despite the fact that she had left, he still loved her."
~ Rose Sawyer, Checkmate (Stalemate, part 2)

As Alex & Ellie renegotiate their relationship in Checkmate, you get one beautiful story. Rose Sawyer also answers the questions that you has in Stalemate in Checkmate.

"I think the tables turned and you were the one who got to say checkmate the day you and I fell in love."
~ Rose Sawyer, Checkmate (Stalemate, part 2)

Rose Sawyer is one of those authors that you MUST explore. I look forward to watching her career grow over time. This series left me wanting more. More Alex & Ellie..... Just more in general from Rose Sawyer. Take a chance and get to know an author that you may not know. You will love what you find with this series.

  THE DEEP END - Excerpt Reveal Teaser     EXCERPT: She turned back to him. “You seem to have a good deal of stamina.” “Amelie…Mistress, I don’t think you’re getting’ that I seriously find you not hard on the eyes.” She bent closer, as intended for this part of their session, some of her fair falling on his chest in another caress. She did this letting her amusement show, if not all of the emotion she felt at his compliment. “I wonder, monchou, if you think you can butter me up with compliments.” “I don’t know. Maybe. Though not sure why I’d bother since I didn’t give you one and you just made me shoot a huge-ass load the like that have never come from my cock.” “And he gives another compliment,” she said through a smile. “You earn it, I’ll say it, he replied, his lips twitching. “That is, if I’m physically capable of speech.” She was still smiling when she reached out a hand and delicately traced circles around his nipple. His eyes darkened. Her good humor increased. “You’re of course aware I should do something about you being so audaciously cheeky.” Another darkness crossed his face. “What?” “I shouldn’t allow you to be cheeky with me.” “Cheeky?” “Impudent,” she explained. The look fled. “You mean, in uppity, hot-chick speak, a wise-ass.” Amelie couldn’t help it, she laughed softly. “She’s got a pretty laugh, too, to go with that pretty accent,” he murmured and she saw his eyes on her lips. I could get lost in this one, she thought. Lost and never found.       Kristin Ashley - headshotAbout Kristen Ashley: Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning. Nothing's changed. Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

DARE TO DREAM by CA Harms
SERIES: A Carolina Beach Novel GENRE: Contemporary Romance
AVAILABLE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED RELEASE DATE: February 14th 2017
After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.
Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.
When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.
But it is, of course, only a dream.
She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.
But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.
Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.
Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.
Darren’s POV 
“Are they both asleep?” Greer asked as I stepped out onto the deck and handed her a glass of wine. 
“Yes,” I said. “They both slowly gave in after they talked about you for at least ten minutes.” 
She smiled as she lifted the glass to her mouth. I couldn’t help but watch closely as it came in contact with her plump, full lips, distracting me from my thoughts. The way she tipped the glass and the way her throat bobbed when she swallowed was so sexy. 
“I had a great time; they’re both amazing,” she assured me as she lowered her glass and brought it to rest on the deck railing. 
I was lost for a moment watching her profile as she looked out toward the water in the distance. She appeared so at peace, so settled. It was a feeling I wasn’t familiar with. Instead I found myself wanting to do whatever it took to keep her. 
I stepped closer and my movements caused her to look up. Without any further delay, fearing if I didn’t do it now, I wouldn’t make the move, I lifted my hand and skimmed my palm over her cheek as I slid it farther into her hair. 
“I don’t think I told you that you’re amazing,” I whispered as I moved my body even closer to hers, feeling her chest pressed firmly to mine. 
“You did, but I sort of like hearing it,” she confessed as her eyes shifted from mine to my mouth, then back again to meet my gaze. 
There was a silent pause just before I moved in, finally closing that last amount of distance between us. Her lips pressed to mine, and I hooked my arm around her waist and held her as close as I possibly could. A gentle brush of my tongue caused her lips to part, and I moved in, taking full advantage. That was the kind of guy I was, demanding, greedy. I just hadn’t been him for so long. But Greer ignited a need inside me that had been hidden someplace down deep. 
It felt extraordinary to be a man with needs and wants and to act on them again. It was freeing and natural, and I knew in that moment that had I allowed my desires to go as far as my mind was screaming for them to go, I would have had her backed up against the house and panting my name in seconds. 
But I had to move slowly, not only for her but for me. Because Greer, I could already tell, could be very addicting. 
I pulled back from the kiss and rested my forehead against hers, and for a moment we both just remained connected, breathing as evenly as possible. My pulse raced and my body hummed from just one kiss. My lips tingled, begging for more. 
She slid her hand beneath the back of my shirt, and the connection ignited my need again as I took her mouth once more. This time, I devoured her lips. The desire to stop was now long gone, replaced by deep hunger. 
“Darren,” she panted against my mouth as she dug her fingers into my back. 
“I know,” I said, though I wasn’t sure why. Maybe I was telling her I felt it too, or maybe I was agreeing that this was just too much. 
I was torn between stopping this before it went further and taking what I needed. 
“Daddy.” 
My daughter’s voice broke us apart, and I backed away from Greer as if an ice-cold glass of water had been dumped over me. 
Greer fumbled to right herself and knocked her wineglass onto the floor in the process. The look on her face gave me all the confirmation I needed that the moment we’d shared was now over.
A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.
