A lovestruck lady charms the duke of her dreams during an expedition on the high seas in this sexy, swashbuckling novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans.
Alexander Sylvester Bracken, Duke of Bedford, has a mission: sail to the Mediterranean and track down Lady Hestia Cary’s missing father. It is a straightforward task, but for two rather vexing complications. First, the sea holds painful memories; second, for her own safety, Hestia is to accompany him. As Alex battles the demons of his past, he must also resist Hestia’s surprisingly skillful attempts at seduction. After all, Alex has sworn to leave her untouched, and he intends to honor that vow—until he can properly ask the Earl’s blessing.
Ever since His Grace rescued Hestia from the arms of a Turkish pirate six long years ago, her heart has belonged to Alex. So when he agrees to help find her father, Hestia is thrilled. Although Alex tries to hide it, there’s passion in his eyes—and a frisson of desire in the air—whenever they meet. On board ship, miles from home, Alex won’t be able to deny her any longer. But with scoundrels lying in wait, she may not live to tell the tale of her conquest.

Taming a Jackaroo
TAMING A JACKAROO
Sidney Valentine
Genre: Western Romance
Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing
Publication Date: June 10, 2017
City girl and serial non-dater, Affrica Clarke travels to Boulia, Australia, to investigate the environmental impacts of the local mining company. Unless she proves herself and wins that promotion, she’ll lose so much more than a pay rise. Yet everything goes wrong the moment she lands in the outback. With no research equipment, only skimpy clothes packed by her best friend to help her score a date, and a tight deadline to submit her report, she’s screwed. So when a sexy cowboy offers to play chauffeur, she’s all over it. But she’s there to shut down the mining activities, not fawn over the guy who’s supporting them, no matter how sizzling the attraction between them.
Billionaire jackaroo, Sam Preston tempts fate as an adrenaline junkie, living each day as if it were his last. Angry and wounded, he’s in town to sell his cattle ranch to the local mining company and be done with his past–until he meets hapless city-chick Affrica, who has no clue about surviving in the desert. Sam doesn’t know how to stop being a daredevil even though Affrica reminds him of the happiness he once had.
Can Sam let go of the past before he loses the one person who’s finally breathed new life into him, or is it not possible to truly tame a jackaroo?
Sidney Valentine’s TAMING A JACKAROO is a tale about finding love in the most unexpected places when it was the last thing one was even considering. Want some push – me – pull- me romance? Love the battle of the sexes? Pack some rugged clothes, and discover love, the Sidney Valentine way!

An Excerpt from the Book

The young man’s chin stuck out. His back stiffened, his gaze glued to Sam. “You? You’re just a rodeo washout.”
Sam stood his ground. The young man’s narrowed eyes screamed for someone to kick some sense into him, and Sam wanted to be that person. Since he recognised Sam, he was probably a local. Didn’t mean he could act like a jackass.
Affrica ran a hand along his arm, distracting him from his thoughts. “Let’s just go,” she said.
Walking away wasn’t Sam’s style, and he held the guy’s stare, challenging him to make the first move. Please do.
The guy looked away first and leapt into the crowd with his mates. Smart move.
With Sam’s arm still tight around Affrica, they wove past the herd, closing in on a staircase that vanished behind a wall.
Halfway up the steps, he stopped in the shadows, giving them complete isolation. She stood by his side, green eyes dominating her pale face. Behind the wall, the music reverberated, but at that moment, the two of them were all that mattered.
“You all right? Did that jerk hurt you?” His fingers pressed into the soft flesh of her arm and the sensation of her skin against his sent fire blazing through him. He’d intended to simply ask her if she was okay, but his pulse was raging, and being close to Affrica in that moment felt right.
She shook her head. “Yeah, I’m fine. You don’t need to get into fights on my behalf, but thanks.”
Her skin burned beneath his fingertips, messing with his head. It had been a long time since he had been compelled to protect anyone. Yet something about Affrica made him want to guard her. To cover her in cotton wool and keep her safe.
Sam pitched a hand against the wall above her shoulder and inhaled her honeyed fragrance mixed with hints of crisp citrus. What had she done to him? They hadn’t even ordered dinner and already he was contemplating kissing her. Tone it back, man.
The rise and fall of Affrica’s chest quickened, and the fire inside him dove south.
An abrupt cacophony of giggles erupted from farther down the staircase. Sam didn’t glance at the strangers; he couldn’t pull his gaze from Affrica’s parted, glossy lips. He wondered if they tasted as sweet as they looked.
Affrica’s attention was drawn to the people who stomped up the stairs as they passed, a frown capturing her brow. She slipped out from under his arm. “Let’s get going.”
He battled the fumes in his head and stared at the way the fabric of her dress rode up the backs of her thighs, dancing across her butt, teasing him. Girls had always vied for his attention, but he’d never wanted any of them the way he did Affrica. Was it because she wasn’t jumping all over him but playing hard to get? He adjusted his belt buckle and strode up after her, taking two steps at a time.

Audiobook Review: Heavy Weather

Author: Normandie Fischer

Narrator: Laura Jennings

Length: 11 hours 7 minutes

Publisher: Normandie Fischer⎮2017

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

add-to-goodreads-button

Death, life, family, domestic abuse–Heavy Weather explores all these themes in a memorable and compelling narrative. When Annie Mac’s life explodes like a storm at sea, she is helpless to fight back. Left for dead, her two children targeted by her abuser, her life appears to be over. The people who help her show her how to weather a storm that she cannot control.

It takes a town to save a child. That town is Beaufort, North Carolina.

Annie Mac’s estranged husband vows that nothing will stop him from getting his baby girl. Not Annie Mac and certainly not that boy of hers.

Only four blocks away, Hannah Morgan lives in comfort with her husband and dog, making pottery and waiting for her best friend to come home. When she discovers the two children cowering in the bushes and their mama left for dead, it doesn’t take her long to set her coterie of do-gooders to some extra-strength do-gooding. Add in Clay, a lonely police lieutenant yanked out of his comfort zone and into the heart of this small family, and who knows what will happen?

From the author of Becalmed comes this latest tale of the Carolina coast, introducing some new characters to love–and to loathe.

This audiobook shocked me from the first chapter. It took me straight in the middle of the action and I was so surprised, I even thought I didn’t start from the beginning. I loved every second of it. I loved all the problems that the author has included in the story and I also loved the narration!

Each character has something to fight for. And they do it in their own manner – some do it the right way, fir the right reasons, others do it the wrong way, but also for the right reasons.  Some characters are to blame, some are worthy of respect. This book has it all! There is so much emotion in each chapter that is coming hard for me to make a coherent review, especially since I’ve just finished it.

Two children can rattle so many people. Our main characters will come to understand that they have to treat them with extra care, since they were part of an abusive environment. Hannah’s husband will have to adapt on sharing his wife’s attention. Annie must learn to fight for her kids. The entire town will be united around the boy and the girl, doing their best to keep them safe. Roy, the girl’s father, is a character very (and I mean VERY) worthy of hate. But somewhere deep inside, he has a soft spot. He has another woman who he claims to love, he has his daughter and he seems to have some twisted form of paternal feelings. I am not trying to understand him of anything, just to pint out the complex way in which he, as well as the other characters, was built.

Themes. Oh my! There are a lot of those, and I think the blurb summarize them very well. These are difficult subjects and probably one of the most important messages this book carries is that we should not pretend abuse does not exist. Especially if there is a child involved. I appreciate this book from so many points and I am so happy I have the privilege of writing a few words.

The narration was fabulous as well. I could feel the emotions in Laura Jennings’ voice.  I could feel the insecurities, the fears and the affection. Her calm and easy interpretation is a plus!

Suffice to say this is a audiobook not to miss! There are books one loves, and there are books one feels compelled to thank the author and narrator for sharing them. So thank you! I’ve said it all.

Excerpt

She took her clothes off. Slowly. He threw them into the shower. She wouldn’t wear them again. He could throw them away.

She stood in her bra and panties before him. “You should leave.”

“I’m not leaving you alone.”

“But?”

“I’m not leaving.” His eyes had turned dark.

If she was honest with herself, though, she didn’t want him to go. She undid the clasp of her bra and dropped it to the floor. He averted his eyes, but she knew he could sense every movement she made by the way he gripped the sink. She reached for the waistband of her pants and pulled them down.

“Can you get in the shower alright?”

“Yes, I can.”

He turned the water on when she got in. Warmth washed away the filth of what could have killed her. She scrubbed her skin while tears fell. She slathered herself in the soap that he handed her. She’d nearly died. She’d really, really come close to dying.

Oh God. Her mum. Owen. Guilt washed over her as she cried and cried. The entire time Callum stood outside the shower. He no longer averted his eyes. He watched as she sobbed and sobbed. She didn’t want him to look away. She wanted him to watch. He needed to be close. She wished he could be in the shower with her; inside her. He could take away the pain of her life but she couldn’t. She had to be strong.

When she finally got out of the shower, he wrapped a towel around her and rubbed her until she was dry.

“I don’t have a change of clothes for you. But.” He took off his jacket, tie, waistcoat and shirt. “Take my shirt, it will cover you. My coat will keep you warm.” He put the waistcoat back on.

“You don’t have a girdle.” She wasn’t sure where those words had come from. All she knew was that she had looked at his muscular torso and that was what had popped into her mind. She let out a little giggle.

He took a step closer to her and wrapped the shirt around her. She dropped the towel to the floor, and he did the buttons up. He stopped after a few and rested his forehead against hers. “I’m so sorry. I’ve never hated having to do anything as much as I hated putting you in that position. It was the only thing we could think of. Signore Corvi had hidden things too well.”

“It’s ok. Everything worked out.”

“Mr North will be very pleased with you.” Callum hesitated on the words.

“And with you.”

He brought his lips down, so they hovered just above hers. “Marie, may I kiss you?”

She swallowed. “Yes. Yes, please. Kiss me.”

Just a check-in

Hey guys,

I have not been keeping up with my tours lately, mostly because my job kept me busy (or at least made me tired enough to not be able to read as much as I would). So for the next period, I’ll not be involved in as many blog tours as I would like, mostly because in the last two weeks I was not able to keep my appointments.

So that being said, I apologize to my partners for not being able to maintain the schedule.

I have received a lot of ARCs from authors and as I was mentioning in another post, they will have priority. Also, my focus will be Romance (and all Romance related) and YA – I feel it’s easier for me to choose a Romance or YA book in a pile of titles. I noticed as well that it’s easier for me to listen to books that are out of my comfort zone than reading them. So I have some audiobook tours that I will be involved in which cover different genres.

I will come back with my April TBR these days. That’s it for now, enjoy Sunday and happy reading J

Sneak peek

Chapter One

Morgana

I hated to admit it, but I was a sucker for a good psychopath. The sinister, mischievous smile always seemed to get me. It didn’t help that some of my own screws got knocked loose awhile ago.

But I was a good person once.

Being a good person ruined my life.

I waited too late in the day to go for my run, but sitting in the house had made me restless. The knife I had hidden underneath the bathroom sink kept whispering for me to take it out. If I didn’t leave, I’d end up playing in a puddle of my blood, getting higher than a kite.

So, there I was, jogging down the barren road, Lana Del Rey blasting through my earbuds. The sun was obscuring my vision, but even partially blinded I could see the dog in the middle of the street. And the car that was approaching, speeding up instead of slowing down.

My moral obligation had me sprinting to scoop the brown and white bundle into my arms. Tires screeched, I screamed, and the car swerved around me. If my bladder had been full, I would’ve pissed my pants.

I pulled the earphones out in time to hear a sleuth of expletives come from inside the large muscle car. The driver had stopped over on the side of the road; his once shiny vehicle now covered in dust. The smell of burnt rubber lingered in the humid air.

Casting a nervous glance back at the classic car, I assessed the dog in my arms and began walking up the street on shaky legs. Away from the angry driver.

The engine revved and tires spun. With a speed that had dust particles rising back into the air, the car zipped passed me just so the driver could cut me off. I had a vague idea of who the driver was.

“What the fuck are you doing?” A man opened the driver door and began to get out. My mind flashed with instant recognition. He had sunglasses on, and I could still feel his eyes burning holes into me.

“You were going to hit him.” I adjusted the small dog in my arms, feeling his wiry fur scratch against my bare skin.

“So you risked your life for a stupid animal?”

“Don’t call him stupid! If you had been driving like a normal person, instead of trying to go fast like a typical douche bag with a sports car, you would have seen him.”

“I wouldn’t have changed course,” he shrugged.

“Then you’re a douche bag and an asshole. Congratulations.” I glared at him and walked passed the trunk, feeling his eyes follow me.

“Morgana,” said a deep voice with an intoxicating amount of sultriness. The amusement in his tone now that he realized who I was irritated me.

“Fucking awesome,” I muttered, turning to face him. Of all people to come in contact with on a barren country road, I run into, Julian Andreou.

The sunglasses on his face may have prevented me from seeing his eyes. But they didn’t hide his prominent jawline, his slight stubble, or the dark eyebrow he had raised at me.

“I was distracted.” He gave me a smile that had deep dimples appearing on his cheeks. Like water on a flame, my immediate anger doused.

“No apology for almost killing me?” He towered above my height of five-four, leaving me no choice but to frown up at him. My reflection looked back at me in his Aviators. God, I looked a hot mess. Strands of baylage brunette hair had escaped my fishtail braid, and a tiny bit of perspiration coated my bronze skin.

He reached up and removed his sunglasses, allowing the full intensity of his gaze to meet mine. His green hues were smiling, causing my stomach to dip for an entirely different reason.

Julian was a gorgeous, immaculately groomed man, and I knew he was indubitably aware of his attractiveness. His ego didn’t need any more strokes, so I always chose to act indifferent. This, in my opinion, is what made him so ‘interested’ in me.

That weird thing people do where one pulls away, so the other follows. That’s what this had to be. He was a patient wolf who wore a suit, and I was the little lamb he wanted to devour.

“I was distracted by staring at you. Something I’ve been doing for close to a year now.” He enunciated each word slowly. As if I could ever forget someone like him, kept trying to ask me out.

He dragged his burning gaze up and down my body. Cognizant I was only wearing a sports bra and tiny yoga shorts; the dog became my shield against his ogling.

“Goodbye, Julian.”

Shaking my head, I turned on my heel and continued walking. Seconds later, a door slammed shut, and he pulled off. I couldn’t hide my amused smile when his car pulled up beside me, moving forward at a snail’s pace.

“Get in the car, Morgan. I’ll take you home,” his smooth baritone voice softly called out to me.

The rumors about his family swirled around in my head. My cheeks heated in shame when I realized what I was doing. Judging him. Just like everyone in town did me.

The people who knew the least about you always had the most to say. In Riverview, a girl giving a boy a small kiss on the cheek spun into a story about her giving blowjobs in the church.

It was a quaint town, which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing unless you were someone like me. A girl that had been smacked with a crazy label.

Riverview gossip spread faster than wildfires. They took a truth, twisted it, and ran wild with lies. When someone found out a tidbit of information about me, I was suddenly a weird recluse that belonged in a freak show.

“Come on, Morgana. I only want to take you home.” His words were saturated with double meaning. I glanced over expecting to see his cocky signature smirk, but all he gave me was a genial smile.

I shouldn’t have considered his offer, but I did. My house was a good thirty minutes away. Satan had lit Hellfires on earth; the heat was kicking my ass, and the dog in my arms felt like he’d been put in an oven.

“Okay,” I omitted, slanting my eyes down to the blacktop and walking around his car. The dog turned its head but didn’t do much else.

Julian climbed out and quickly came around to open the passenger door for me. Once I was settled into the cool leather seat, he went back to the driver side.

Something in my head was telling me this was a terrible idea.

Book Tour: The Mood for Trouble

The Mood for Trouble
Agent Provocateur Book 1
by Wynter S.K
Genre: Romantic Suspense
It takes a special blend of insanity and courage to answer the call to
become a United States federal agent. CIA officer Charlotte “Chase”
Moreno is equal parts crazy and brave, which, when combined properly,
creates one kick-ass, dead-shot, often reckless spy.
Chase and sexy, roughneck DEA Special Agent Jonathan Harper are forced to
work together to bring down an international drug and weapons
syndicate, and there’s one problem: they can’t stand each other.
But when he comes to her rescue on their first mission together, it’s
impossible for either of them to deny their growing feelings, or the
heat that’s boiling just beneath the surface between them. But one
sizzling, unforgettable night between them in Sin City might have
just changed the tide–forever.

Excerpt:

I extended my hand and offered a one-sided smile. I almost gave her my real name, but caught myself at the last second. “Liam Hughes. Pleased to meet you.”

She glanced down at my hand, then grasped it. Hers was cool, small, but her powerful grip took me by surprise. I suppressed a wince of pain.

“Charlotte Moreno.”

“Charlotte,” I repeated, disentangling my hand. I subtly flexed my fingers. “Lovely name for a lovely woman.”

She tilted her head. “Everyone calls me Chase.”

I breathed in the delicious scent of her perfume, and the delicate scent of her hair. Both made me light-headed. “Are you the chaser or the chasee?” Smooth, Harper.

My lame joke only brought on another enigmatic smile, her eyes glittering. “Depends on if I’m in the mood to be the prey or the predator.”

Wynter S.K. is her name, and razor-sharp romance is her game. She considers
herself a pioneer of the notion that crème brûlée is a good source
of calcium, and has the uncanny ability to explain to you, in detail,
why wine is basically salad. She’s turned vocal novelizations of
her favorite TV shows (Supernatural, anyone?) into a drinking game,
and frequently laughs herself into asthma attacks.
She’s mom to two furry kids, the Pushy Pomeranian and the Contemptuous Cat.
Oh, and you know those idealized, Alpha male, “book boyfriend”
types we all love that are super tough and sweet and hot, all in one
unfair and unrealistic package? Yeah, she’s married to one. He’s
a cop and a U.S. Army soldier, and after over a dozen years together,
he still makes her heart go ka-thump.
Wynter S.K. is a romantic suspense writer, with a special emphasis on
strong, heart-of-gold, gruff Alpha males and butt-kicking heroines—no
damsels in distress over here! Her favorite pairings are two souls
drawn together under crazy circumstances and recognize their soul’s
counterpart in the other. Mutual healing, painful growth, and of
course, lots of red-hot romps.
Wynter lives for the happily-ever-after, but if, and only if, it follows a
hard-wrought battle. Wynter loves to (figuratively, of course) stab
readers in the heart before making it all better again, so all you
have to do is trust her to tell you a good story, and strap yourself
in—it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
