~Review: Trapped by a Dangerous Man (By a Dangerous Man, #1)~

What does she owe to the man who saved her life?

Despite growing up a bounty hunter, being taken seriously is a constant struggle for 24-year-old Audrey Stroop. When she stumbles across information on Corbin Lagos, she recognizes the chance of a lifetime.

One blizzard and a car accident later, she wakes up in gorgeous Corbin’s bed. She doesn’t know how he’ll react if he discovers that the woman he rescued intends to haul him in. She also can’t fight her attraction to him.

He’s nothing like the men she typically seduces and discards. He’s dominant. He’s dangerous. And he’s going to explode her life into a million tiny pieces.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Audrey is a member of her families’ bounty hunter business.  She has a twin brother that looks nothing like her.  Audrey wants to impress her father with two million dollars in bounty retrieval and so decides to go after the bad guy by herself.  The only problem Audrey has is a snow storm that is causing all kind of traffic problems and with her old car it is a hazard.  Telling no one where she is going she sets out to catch her criminal and ends up in a ditch almost snowed in.  Audrey is rescued by the very man that she wants to arrest. Sparks being to fly and Audrey cannot deny the attraction she feels for Corbin Lagos.
Corbin is a paid assassin and Audrey wants to collect the bounty on his head.  She goes into the situation without really investigating why Corbin is #1 on the Most Wanted List.  So when the two get up and personal it’s no surprise that Audrey finds herself unsure of what to do.  Especially when he calls a truce until the blizzard passes and they can once again join the real world again. 
Who is the real Corbin Lagos? A monster or a victim?  Why does he make Audrey want to stay with him? Can the two find a way to be together?

Hero – Corbin Lagos: 4 stars
Heroine –Audrey Stroop : 4 stars
Steam: 4 stars 
Plot: 4 stars 
Cliffhanger: Yes

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  This book starts out as an easy bounty hunter, hunting down the bad guy, but ends with a teaser of what if? It also has some domination between a hot, sexy bad guy and a good girl that could be pulled to the dark-side into the world of BDSM.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! I really want to know if Corbin is really who Audrey thinks he is or is he something more?  Can’t wait to read the next installment of Corbin and Audrey!

~Review: Relentless (The Marsh Brothers #1) by Anna Wells~

The last thing Michaela Prentice expected was to end up in bed next to her friend Jordan Marsh after a wee bit too much champagne. The sex was incredible but she doesn't want their one night to ruin their friendship.

The last thing Jordan Marsh wants is to remain friends with Michaela. They’d crossed the line from friends to lovers and that was where he was going to stay, after all he’d been relentlessly plotting her seduction for months.

Now Michaela has woken up to a slight hangover, a relationship with a guy she thought she knew, a mother planning a wedding, and a brother and a best friend who think it’s important to run a background check on your new man. What could be more normal?

Just as Michaela is beginnings to adjust to the status of their new relationship things start exploding; literally. 

Warning: This book is funny, steamy and contains sex scenes with chocolate that some readers might find delicious.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Jordan was instantly attracted to Michaela but she was engaged and he was dating a friend of hers. When Michaela finds her best friend and fiancé in bed together everything changes and Jordan has a chance to be more than just a friend.   Even though she is not engaged any longer, Jordan finds himself in the position of friend and can’t seem to get Michaela to look at him as something else.  Jordan had a plan, he would ease Michaela into a relationship and the end results would be that she would be his.
Michaela can’t believe how she is reacting to her best friend Jordan.  She is has a feeling that she is either falling in love or has a huge crush on her BFF.  When one of her friends states that Michaela and Jordan look like an item and that Jordan really has a thing for Michaela.  Michaela confesses that she wants more from Jordan but is not sure that he does too.  When they come together in a night of intense sexual pleasure she begins to second guess what has happened between them.  But Jordan is having none of that and tells her to DEAL with the new us!
Will Jordan convince Michaela to take a chance on loving him?  Can he get her to realize how she feels about him is more than BFF’s and he feels the same way about her?  Will Jordan’s secrets keep them apart?
Hero – Jordan Marsh: 4 stars
Heroine –Michaela Prentice: 4 stars
Steam: 4 stars 
Plot: 4 stars 
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  When you talk about perseverance this book has a man in it that will never give up on the woman he loves.  Add in the fact that he is funny, sexy and a billionaire to boot and you have the perfect love story plus don’t forget about the corporate espionage and the who done it part of the book.

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! Love this author and the way she weaves her storytelling web.  I will defiantly read more books as they come available.

~Review: Love Potions (Warlocks MacGregor #1) by Michelle M. Pillow ~

A little magickal mischief never hurt anyone...

Erik MacGregor, from a clan of ancient Scottish warlocks, isn't looking for love. After centuries, it's not even a consideration...until he moves in next door to Lydia Barratt. It's clear that the shy beauty wants nothing to do with him, but he's drawn to her nonetheless and determined to win her over.

Lydia Barratt just wants to be left alone to grow flowers and make lotions in her old Victorian house. The last thing she needs is a demanding Scottish man meddling in her private life. Just because he's gorgeous and totally rocks a kilt doesn't mean she's going to fall for his seductive manner.

But Erik won't give up and just as Lydia let's her guard down, his sister decides to get involved. Her little love potion prank goes terribly wrong, making Lydia the target of his sudden embarrassingly obsessive behavior. They'll have to find a way to pull Erik out of the spell fast when it becomes clear that Lydia has more than a lovesick warlock to worry about. Evil lurks within the shadows and it plans to use Lydia, alive or dead, to take out Erik and his clan for good.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Lydia’s was raised by her grandmother, a green witch or a naturalist and she had taught her everything she knew about herbs and making potions.  When her grandmother died she left everything to Lydia including Lydia’s childhood home.  Lydia is spooked by the feeling that something is coming, something really powerful.  She meets a beautiful man on her way to the post office and is immediately attracted to him.
Erik is an immortal warlock and is looking for a new home for his clan.  When he helps a young woman pulling a cart filled with packages he is instantly entranced with her.  He feels like there is something special about the reaction that they are both having to one another but his priority is finding his family a new safe home that will protect them from non-magick users. Finding Lydia is the icing on the cake for Erik.  He had given up on finding his fiorghra but he could still enjoy a beautiful woman and Lydia attracted him like no one else ever had. 
Will Erik be able to convince Lydia that she belongs with him and she should trust him?  Can he protect her from the evil that wants to use her to destroy him and his family?

~Review: The Saint by Tiffany Reisz~

The Saint by Tiffany Reisz
Release date: June 24th
Before she became Manhattan's most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor…
Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

My name is Dominic Powers. My software engineering company, DPS, is one of the top 500 companies in the world. Conducting a search for my Personal Assistant brought an unexpected candidate straight to me.

I knew she was different as soon as she walked into my high-rise office. She exuded innocence and inexperience. Those are two things in a woman that normally don’t attract me, but I am apparently making an exception for her. She’s young and delicate – and I’m afraid she won’t make it in my world.

But the carnal man I’ve kept hidden deep inside me says I have to try.

My good intentions always led to disaster. The cold hard truth is that I was never meant to be a father to Lily. Staying in Treepoint, Kentucky for a few weeks to get to know my daughter was meant to be a time of discovery, instead I find out that she’s married to a killer and living in a sex club. I’m going to find out how to destroy The Last Riders and give Lily the future she deserves.

He thinks I’m a whore; he doesn’t know me. I’m nobody’s fool, but he thinks he’s going to use me to find The Last Riders only weakness. That’s his biggest mistake of all. There’s more to me than meets the eye. King thinks he’s too good for me, that I’m less than dirt in his eyes. What the King of Queen City is going to find out too late is that I’m his judge, and I hold his life in my hands.

I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduate this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing four series of books- The Last Riders, The Dark Souls, The VIP Room, and Biker Bitches series. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother, and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written. 

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be this summer. Right now I am typing away on my next story and looking forward to traveling this summer!”

About the Author:
Hey! My name is Sarah Brianne and after living for twenty-two years the characters in my head told me enough was enough and I have finally put pen to paper (or is it finger to keyboard?) to tell their stories. Since I was a little girl I have watched every chick flick I could get my hands on, then when I became older I discovered a whole new world of romance novels. To me there is nothing better then a tale of true love and those are the stories that have inspired me to write. Like everything else in my life I have put my own spin on two lovers destined to be together. 

Next to my books my prized possession are my two beautiful fur babies, Kalypso and Khaleesi. I know what you’re thinking, do you pack them in your purse? Yep, right next to my kindle.
