Spotlight Banner Author of the Week: Lilly Wilde

 Lilly Wilde is the Author of The Untouched Trilogy (Untouched, Touched and Touched By Him). She is a wife and mom who loves to fill each day with happiness and laughter. Lilly loves to dream, get lost in fantasy and create alternate worlds in which we can escape ever so often. She’s down-to-earth, engaging and compassionate with a great sense of humor. Her laughter is one of the first qualities that you’ll notice; you’ll become instantly drawn to her witty and fun-loving spirit. Lilly spent a lot of time daydreaming as a child which led to numerous hours of reading and eventually the writing of poetry. The first story Lilly began writing was entitled He Lied To Me, a novel she plans to complete in the near future. After years of starting and stopping several novels, she eventually set a goal to complete her debut novel, Untouched. Her stories are of strength, growth, facing demons and stepping outside your comfort zone; they often surround topics of family and love and the beauty of both.

What Readers are Saying about Untouched:
“Simply Exquisite!! This book is amazing! The description of the characters is so vivid and extremely catching. I felt like I was actually living the story. I was so drawn to Aria, Aiden and April. The communication between Aiden and Aria is so touching ... I laughed throughout the book and cried at the end. Cannot wait to read more ... I love the sensuality of it all. One of the best breath taking books I have read so far. Can’t wait to read the next one. Awesome job,Lilly Wilde! " ~Review from Amazon

“Lilly Wilde gives you the same excitement we got from 50 Shades and The Crossfire Series. Except Lilly delivered it to us in a whole new way. It was so much more realistic than the others that you not only finished it yearning for your own Aiden but you actually think it’s possible to find him. You are captured from the beginning to the end. You fall in love with this couple. This couple is so sexy and your mind takes you away to forbidden places and feelings. It’s a great story and a sexy read. You don’t want to miss out on this!!!!!”

Review of Physical Distraction (A Sinful Suspense Novel) by Tess Oliver

A sexy, new romantic suspense from bestselling author Tess Oliver.

Tashlyn Younglove has returned to Blackthorn Ridge, the town where her dad died sixteen years earlier. As she unravels the mystery behind her father's death, dark secrets are revealed, putting her in grave danger. All the while, Tashlyn finds herself falling hard for Jem Wolfe, the youngest son of the town's most notorious family. Can she trust the man who has stolen her heart?

Jem Wolfe returned to Blackthorn Ridge to keep his brother, Dane, out of trouble. When Tashlyn Younglove moves to town, she dredges up the town's dark history, a history that involves Jem's dad. At the same time, Jem finds himself falling hard for her. Will a long buried ugly truth push Tashlyn from his arms for good?

A Sinful Suspense Novel

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Hidden secrets in a small logging town are at the center of a sixteen year old mystery that saturates Tess Oliver's newest novel, Physical Distraction with suspense. The reader is pulled immediately into the life of the town's bad boy, Jem Wolfe. The arrival of a sheltered flower-child from the Grog, a compound of artisan hippies living and communing with nature, adds to the clandestine secrets of the town and its inhabitants.  Tashlyn Younglove was searching for answers about her father's accidental death in a small town called Blackthorn Ridge. Jem Wolfe and his family are notoriously known as trouble in this small community. His character develops before your eyes into a multi-dimensional entity as you read his and Tashlyn’s story. This is the path they take together to find peace, happiness, and love in an uncertain world.

Tash couldn't remember details about her life when she was found by a park ranger, cold and hungry.  She needed answers and decides to find out what had happened when she was a young child of seven.  Riding a bus to Blackthorn she meets Everly and they become fast friends.  Everly invites her to stay with her while she is in Blackthorn.  When Tash meets Jem Wolfe after being warned to stay clear of him and his brother Dane, she learns there are many different sides to this complex man.  Jem is intrigued by the girl he's dubbed "Woodstock" but still warns her that this town is not for her and she needs to leave.  The more time they spend together the more the attraction between them grows and Jem knows he will do whatever it takes to keep Tash safe.

The mystery behind her father's death and Jem's father's past collide into a story you do not want to miss! Not knowing who the real villain is or where the next strike will come from, attests to the grip this author has on the reader.  The knowledge of the mysterious disappearances of young girls adds another element of tension to the storyline.  Tess Oliver masterfully weaves suspense and romance together, creating an unforgettable read that will satisfy anyone that craves a novel filled with mystery, intrigue and passion.  From my perspective, this is a must read and a great addition to my library.

Review of Seven Years (Seven #1) by Dannika Dark

Seven years ago, my world ended.
Seven years later, my new life began.

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier. Dammit.

Austin Cole has returned to the city where he grew up, and just in time. He's lived a hard life these past seven years, and the shadows of his past are threatening to destroy Lexi's family. It's time that she learned the truth about her brother, but there is a shocking twist that Austin never saw coming. Now he must protect her family when her mother and sister wind up in mortal danger. Will Lexi learn to accept the truth about who he is, and can Austin salvage a relationship from the ruins of their past?

Destiny will find you.

What if Shifters really did exist, and lived in secret? 

Overall Rating:  4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★

While sugarplums danced in their heads…or was that while shifters, shifted in their heads? In this remarkable paranormal romance by the talented Dannika Dark, we meet two extraordinary characters, Lexi Knight and Austin Cole.  Seven Years is the first book in the Seven Series and creates a world of shifters that is nothing like anything I have read before!  It is filled with love, loyalty, warmth of family and of course the unknown! You will find yourself asking what will happen next.

Life sometimes can be full of tough choices. Like, am I going to sell candy for the rest of my life?   Like, can I forgive and forget that my best friend left when my family and I needed him the most? Now that he has decided to come back home after seven years, will I still feel the same about him?  Will I be able to put behind the crush I had on him?  Is that all my future holds? When Austin walks back into Lexi’s life, secrets are revealed that may destroy not only her but him as well.

Things are the same but different when Cole returns home.  His feelings for Lexi are still in turmoil, they have not changed.  But he is a shifter and it is forbidden for his world to mix with hers.  Not only that, but when he left he thought that she would be protected.  Her family would be safe and taken care of; only that is not what he finds out happened.  Can they find away?  He is the Alpha of his pack and must follow the rules.  

Threats from the past resurface and threaten not only Lexi but her family as well. Cole has put them under his protection, but who will protect him?  This is one shifter tale that you will not want to miss!  I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

Congrats & Happy New Release to T.S. Joyce! Last Immortal Dragon is available now!

Damon Daye is the last immortal dragon shifter, and has been protecting his mountains and the people who live there for years. His outlook on life is simple. Remain cold enough that no one ever touches his heart. This is the only way he’s learned after all this time to protect himself, but the bear crews in his mountains have been breaking down his walls little by little, and no one realizes how dangerous the consequences can be. When his best friend, Mason, brings a woman to him to settle his want for a child, Damon is stunned to find she is the exact physical replica of the woman who destroyed him eons ago. Unfortunately for all, the more attached he becomes to the beguiling woman, the more dangerous his dragon becomes.

Alpha bear shifter, Clara Sutterfield, thinks she has everything figured out. After the tragic loss of her crew, she is bound and determine to face this harsh world alone as a closed-hearted and minimally talented psychic. Tarot cards and palm readings are her gig, but lately, she’s been dreaming of otherworldly creatures with wings, and teeth, and fire. When she’s hired to help a rich landowner with his ghost problem, she has no idea she is walking into a hoax set up for her to meet the man who has been visiting her in visions. The more she gets to know about the cold dragon, the more he warms her heart, but there’s a reason her fate has led her to Damon, and they are both about to face a storm that could end the world as they know it. Her options are simple: run away and survive the dark destiny that is coming for her, or stand and fight with the dragon who now protects her heart. And if she survives Dangerous Damon, she just might find that she can survive anything.

Illicit Temptations EBOOK FOR WEB_1
Michael Valente
My father was the underboss of an organized crime family. He was murdered when I was a teenager leaving me broken. My mother died in a tragic accident, her death annihilated me. My life was in shambles until Victor Pastore, one of New York’s most notorious gangsters and my late father’s best friend, recruited me to work for him.
Everyone expected me to walk in my father’s shadow, to be the prodigal son, the next big thing to hit the mob. I was torn between filling those expectations and walking the straight line my mother wished I had. Nothing made sense and I felt as if I was just passing through life.
The only beacon of light in my otherwise dark world was the one girl that was off limits to me. The one girl who could bring me to my knees consuming my mind, body and soul.
She’s the sweetest temptation I’ve ever known and the most illicit.
Nikki Pastore
My father’s a gangster. My boyfriend’s is the king of New York’s night clubs. I am often labeled as Vic’s daughter or Rico’s girl, never just Nikki. I struggle for people to acknowledge me for the woman I am and not for the men in my life. I’m fighting a losing battle.
There is only one person who sees me for me, my Mikey.
He’s wild.
He’s reckless.
He’s hot as hell.
He’s completely unattainable but oh so tempting.

He set his coffee mug on the counter before stepping precariously close. “Say it again.” He demanded, barely audible. He was close, too close hogging up all my air. I planted my palms on his chest and pushed. “You’re a dick.” I hissed. He closed his hand around my wrist and leaned against the counter tugging on my wrist pulling me against him. I wriggled my hand free, but he took hold of my hips and flipped us around so that my back was against the counter. He let go of my hips bracing one hand on each side of me as he gripped the edge of the counter and boxed me in. “Christ that mouth of yours will be the death of me.” He said huskily, his eyes diverting back and forth between my eyes and my lips. “I wouldn’t be so sure about that considering bullets were flying passed your head last night.” I said my voice sounding raspy. I cleared my throat, wishing I didn’t sound so much like a phone sex operator. I was mad at him, my voice should sound angry not sexy. I let my eyes wander his body because I was the queen of mistakes. How was it that even in a rumpled suit he looked so enticing? I conceded that there was definitely something wrong with me. I was engaging in this ridiculous sexual tension while we were hiding out in a safe house waiting on word for why the hell we were shot at in the first place. My mind should’ve been on my dickhead ex-boyfriend trying to figure out what his part in all this was but instead I was itching to hump Mikey’s leg like a bitch in heat. “It didn’t work did it Princess?” He said looking down as my body betrayed me and arched slightly to his craving his touch. He smiled coyly giving me what I needed wedging his leg in between mine. “What?” I croaked closing my eyes because Naughty Nikki the phone sex operator was back. Yes, I now named my alter ego. “Staying away from me, pretending this thing between you and I didn’t exist wishing that it hadn’t just been a phone call that sent you over the edge, it didn’t work did it?” His voice sounded so controlled making me resent him and fight the urge to knee him in the balls. “In fact, I’d say it backfired right in your pretty little face.” He nuzzled the side of my neck, pushing away my hair with his nose, his lips grazing my skin ever so slightly. “Should I do it Nikki? Should I slip my fingers under your skirt and see how much it didn’t work?” His hands began to fumble with the hemline of my skirt and I thought about stopping him but I didn’t want to. I wanted him to touch me. I wanted him to fuck me up against this counter, but I’d settle for his hand. “Should I dip my fingers into that pussy of yours? Tell me Princess are you wet?” He whispered, taking my earlobe between his lips giving it a tantalizing suck. He shifted his body slightly pressing his erection against my thigh. I involuntarily wrapped my fingers around his wrist guiding his hand under my skirt. “Are you going to let me watch you come this time, or are you going to be a coward again?” He asked, his words sounding like a dare. Did he really just call me a coward? His fingertips worked along my thigh inching closer and closer… almost there. What was I saying? I was a second away from taking his finger and sticking it inside my aching pussy myself, but the front door of the cabin slammed open. Mikey’s hand dropped away from me and he reached behind him for the gun that was tucked into the back of his pants. I didn’t know if it was because of my current state or if I had simply lost my mind, but watching Mike holding a gun was incredibly sexy. His muscles were all taut as his arms extended pointing the gun at the intruder… my father.

What happens when six years later she returns? The only woman he has loved. A woman who has changed herself! When all the lies surface will she be able to forgive everyone she has trusted in her life or will Calla turn to the man who destroyed her?

Excerpt Reveal Beyond the Cut by Sarah Castille @sarah_castille

Sinner's steal excerpt reveal.jpg

sinner's steel teaser 4.jpg

“Take off your clothes.” Evie leaned against Zane’s bedroom door, more for support than a means of escape.
“Evie . . .”
A growl curled in her throat, her anger growing as she realized this was the beginning of the end. Once she saw what was under his shirt, there would be no going back. “Take them off. I want to see what he did to you.”
He pulled his shirt over his head and tossed it on the bed, then he stripped down to his boxers. Her legs trembled as her gaze swept over his body, starting at his feet, her strength leaving her as she took in the discolored skin on his shins and thighs, the cuts on his wrists, and then gave out when she saw the full extent of his bruised and lacerated torso.
Her beautiful Zane.
She sank down to the floor, wrapped her arms around her legs and buried her head and sobbed, the grief ripping her apart inside. Tears spilled down her cheeks dripping on the floor with each ragged inhale. She cried not just for him, but for them, and the knowledge they could never be together.
“Fuck.” Zane’s voice was harsh, raw as he crossed the room to kneel beside her. “Sweetheart, it’s not as bad as it looks.”
She shook her head, held herself tighter, unable to speak for the images spinning around in her mind. Jagger had no bruises on his body. That guilty look on his face when he’d come into the shop . . . the marks on Zane’s wrists.
Zane hadn’t fought back. His hands were tied and he hadn’t fought back.
“Let me explain.” He cradled her in his arms, as if she was the one hurting. She supposed, in a way, she was.
“There’s nothing to say that could make this acceptable to me.” Evie sniffed back her tears. “I can’t do this, Zane. Seeing you like this is tearing me apart. I’ll never be able to forgive Jagger, never forget what he did to you. I won’t even pretend to understand how you agreed to it. The fact that you live in a world where this kind of thing goes on is bad enough, but on top of it . . . your patches . . . blood . . .”
“I’ll leave.” Simple words and yet they weighed heavy on her heart.
“I don’t want you to leave.” She held herself stiff, afraid to touch his battered body. “This club means everything to you. That you would take that beating from your best friend tells me how much you love this life. You would hate me every day for taking you away from it.”
“I love you more,” he said. “I have always loved you. I’ve lived my life in the shadows because I couldn’t let you go.” He drew in a ragged breath, brushed his lips over her hair. “I can’t lose you now. I went looking for Viper because I couldn’t bear to lose you.”
She struggled to sit, pushed herself to standing. “I can’t bear the thought of losing you either, but I don’t even know who I am anymore. All I know is that I’ve been stupidly naive, and this life you lead isn’t for me. I want to be with you, but I don’t see how this can work.”
His face smoothed, eyes darkened. Even now she knew him so well, she could see his emotional retreat.
She closed her fist and hit it to her breast, her eyes stinging with tears all over again. “It hurts me to see you in pain. It hurts me to think of you suffering. It hurts me to think of you in such danger that you have to take a life. I’ve spent my whole life hurting because I wanted you and couldn’t have you. I just can’t take the hurting anymore. I love you, Zane, but it hurts just too damn bad, and now you’re taking risks for me that could get you killed. I don’t want that. Even if we can’t be together, I need to know you’re alive and happy and doing what you love to do.”
His voice, when he spoke, was thick with pain. “You want to walk away? What about Ty?”
“I don’t know.” God, why couldn’t she stop crying? “I need some time to think about it. He adores you. He’s so happy to have you in his life, I can’t take that away from him.”
She turned, reached for the door, but it felt too wrong. Unfinished. There was something she needed to do.
“Will you let me do something for you before I go?”
She gestured to his bruised, battered body. “You did this for me. I want to give something back. I want to take care of you so when I leave I’ll know you’re going to be okay.”
His life was all about pain.
And yet the pain in his body was nothing compared to the pain in his heart. Zane’s hand clenched on his breast. If he could rip his damn heart out of his chest he would. Go back to the darkness that had sustained him for the last nine years, back to the shadows. Out of the damn light.
He heard the rush of water in the shower from the en suite bathroom, a luxury afforded only the senior patch brothers who kept rooms at the clubhouse, but he couldn’t go in. He was too wound up, too out of control, too damn emotional.
What else could he do? He had meant every word when he told her he would fight to be with her. He just hadn’t realized she would be the one standing in his way.
With a roar, he thudded his fist against the wall. His hands were about the only place on his body that wasn’t bruised. Might as remedy that problem because he had saved them for nothing.
When he felt no release from his assault on the wall, he ripped a drawer from the dresser and smashed it on the ground. Clothes flew across the room and the wood cracked and splintered. Like his heart.
But now that the floodgates had opened, he couldn’t stop. He lifted the drawer and smashed it down again, his aching muscles protesting the impact. “Do you want him, Evie? Is that it? Is that what this is all about?” He knew it was ludicrous. She had seen who Viper was, but he needed a reason, something he could change.
“No, baby. You know that’s not true. Now come let me wash you and look after those cuts and bruises.”
Smash. Smash. Smash. He tore the drawer apart. He loved her compassion and yet he hated it if it meant the last time he touched her he would be in pain.
“I’ll shower with you so I can look after you properly.” She clasped the bottom of her T-shirt and tugged it over her head. Zane froze mid-strike, his primal instincts sharpening at the sight of her skin and her beautiful breasts encased in blue satin.
“I don’t want your help.” He threw the remnants of the drawer across the room.
“Too bad. And if you can’t it for you, then do it for me.” Evie undid the bra and tossed it on the bed with her shirt. “It will make me . . . feel better.” She slid her jeans and panties over her hips and then kicked them off. Gloriously naked, quietly confident, undaunted by his rage, she turned into the bathroom. “Come on.”
Zane’s body shook, torn between going after his woman and unleashing his frustrations on the rest of the furniture.
Don’t go in. He knew what would happen if he followed her, and it wouldn’t involve standing still while she treated his wounds. And with his heart raw and exposed, he didn’t think he could handle that level of intimacy without totally losing control. With a growl, he ripped out another drawer, and hammered it against the wall until it shattered, pieces flying in all directions. Exhausted, he sank down on the bed, the ruins of the drawers scattered at his feet, his muscles quivering at the exertion. He could hear the shower behind him, feel the breath of steam, smell the floral fragrance of shampoo.
Loves me.
Leaving me.
Overwhelmed with the need to touch her, he stripped off his clothes, all thoughts of staying away forgotten beneath the desire to hold her in his arms one last time.
Evie turned when he stepped into the shower, rivulets of water streaming over her beautiful body. “Took you long enough. Did you break all the drawers?”
Words deserted him. He took her in his arms and held her against him.
“It’s okay,” she murmured against his chest, her arms tightening around him. “We’ll be okay.”
He didn’t know how long they stood under the warm water, but his heart finally slowed its frenetic beat and the tension eased from his body.
“You’re mine.”
“And you’re mine. That won’t change.” She slid her hands up his chest ever so gently to circle his neck.
She was right about that. Nothing wouldn’t change. He would find a way. He would fight for her until he couldn’t fight anymore.

Tall, dark, and dangerously handsome, Zane "Tracker" Colter is the strong, silent type of tattooed muscle biker who drives women wild. But as a master of strategy for the outlaw MC club, Sinner's Tribe, he doesn't have time to play around with groupies and biker chicks-especially when he can't stop thinking about Evie, the girl who got away...
Evie's been in love with Zane ever since they were children-until he broke her heart and disappeared. Now he's back in her life, bigger and badder than ever. Zane is stunned by how beautiful and confident Evie's become, using her artistic talent to customize motorcycles. He wants her so bad, he'd ride through fire to win her back. There's one problem: Evie is dating his deadliest rival-the leader of the Black Jacks-and if Evie and Zane hook up, there'll be hell to pay... in Sinner's Steel.
