Review of Bear Fur Hire (Bears Fur Hire #2) by T.S. Joyce

**The full-length second book in T. S. Joyce’s new Bears Fur Hire series.** 

Lena Rhodes is a professional runner. Life is a lot easier when she is throwing everything she has into being a nature photographer for an elite outdoor magazine. And now, she is on her biggest assignment yet: Alaskan brown bears. She’s been training for years for this opportunity, but the growly, sexy outdoor guide charged with taking her to the bears is turning her world on its axis. She had everything figured out. Eat, sleep, take photographs, and never let anyone get too close. Too bad Jenner is making her forget all her rules. But his secrets are deep and dark, and as it turns out, the dangerous Alaskan grizzlies she is here to photograph are the least of her worries. 

Jenner Silver is just trying to get from one day to the next without his inner bear shredding him. But when a feisty, beautiful wildlife photographer shows up at his lodge begging a tour to find brown bears, his protective instincts go into overdrive. The harder he tries to stay away from her, the more he wants to know about the woman, but both of their survival depends on him keeping his head out in the Alaskan bush. Torn between maintaining a professional relationship, and the bone-deep desire to claim her for his own, Jenner will have to decide if he’s ready to share his secrets. And only if Lena can stop running. 

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

Lulu's Loves Printable 255 Cream 6x9
I'm Barbara, I read. I write. I come from the northeast, born in Havre de Grace, MD, and grew up in Pennsylvania. In my teens we moved to the Space Coast area of Florida. Now I live in Middleburg, Florida (Jacksonville area) with my husband, Gene.
I've worked in the electronics industry, and most recently in healthcare. I give back by volunteering whenever I can, and in 2009, I received The American Cancer Society's HOPE Award for volunteerism.
The stories I write come from my heart. I'm never sure where they are going until I get there. Most often, a song begins to paint a picture that becomes a love story. Sprinkled through my stories are humor and sadness based on real life experiences shared with family and friends. I write with emotion, pulling from memories and events that made me who I am. My readers tell me they feel like they know the characters I share with them. I like to call my writing 'the sound-track of my life.'
A reviewer on Amazon recently said, "This isn't a romance, it's a love story." (readingmaven)
As a writer, I hope you continue this journey, travel with me, see what song inspires me next, and I hope that you see more growth with each page you turn.
I love to read; it's a gift that was shared with me by my mom - Alis. She introduced me to her favorites like Little Women, Christy, and the Nancy Drew books. Books are an escape, a journey into new and different places and I've been many places I never dreamed of. My favorite genre is romance. I to explore and support other authors who paint a picture through words that allow me to feel the story. Some of my favorites are Adriana Trigiani, Maggi Myers, and Nora Roberts.

Release Date: June 28th, 2016


New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the “wild and raw”* world of the Reapers MC with the story of Gage and Tinker…

The club comes first.
I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.
Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.
I’m coming for you, Tinker.

Cover Reveal: Dolce by Rachel Blaufeld

Title: Dolce (Love at Center Court #2)
Author: Rachel Blaufeld
Release Date: Jan 21, 2016
Find on Goodreads
“Who just stole my thunder across the Hafton airwaves, you ask? Right now, right this very second, listeners, I have Hafton’s one-and-only, the main man with the ball in hand, Blane Steele is in the studio. Mark my words—he’ll not only steal the ball, but your lady’s heart too. Watch out, gentlemen, the Stealer is in the house!”
— Sonny B. Knocking Boots, Hafton Radio 96.9
Coed antics.
Angst-ridden twists in fate.
Caterina is an intern. Sonny is her shock-jock boss. And Blane is a good-hearted baller…except when he steps on the court. Between on-air dares, an evil feminist professor, a straight-shooter of a coach, and rumors from the league surrounding Steele, these three are destined to screw it all up.
Rather than a love triangle, this is a friends-to-lovers story where the disc jockey acts as the catalyst, and a basketball player finds his life transformed when center court intersects with love.
I stood, flipped off the asshole who’d just destroyed my social life, and strode toward the door. The curvy chick opened it wide for me before I even remembered she was still standing there.
“Thanks,” I mumbled. “After you.”
I leaned into the door frame as I propped the door open with my elbow and gestured for her to walk ahead. Avoiding my eyes, she slipped past me with a muttered thank-you.
As the door clicked shut behind us, I said to her, “Yeah, well, a hand job may be nice, but I guess that’s out after what I promised inside there.” I tilted my head back toward the studio and laughed at my own joke.
She turned and shot me a hard glare, her oversized sweatshirt sagging off one shoulder.
Most other girls I knew would have been fine if I dropped trou right there and whipped my dick right the fuck out. Their hands would have been just itching to grab me. But not this one.
“Kidding. I was kidding.” I lifted my hands in the air in surrender.
All of a sudden, I felt ashamed of my behavior. I wasn’t that guy. Was I?
She raised an eyebrow, making me question my character some more.
“I’m serious. Kidding. Listen, don’t let him boss you around. Once upon a time, Sonny was an intern too. A lowly, pimply one.”
“I’ll keep that in mind.” Her words were thick with an East Coast accent and heavy with doubt. “See you around,” she said, dismissing me at the supply closet.

Review of Enslaved (Brides of the Kindred #14) by Evangeline Anderson

Enslaved is book number 14 in the Brides of the Kindred series. It is a plus-length novel of around 168,000 words

Anything for you Mistress…

Thrace S’ver is an unwilling slave. Drugged and bound, he is taken to the Flesh Bazaar and put up for sale to the highest bidder. But this is not the first time Thrace has been on the auction block—he has a past full of horrors he doesn’t intend to repeat. Desperate to be free, he swears he’ll kill whoever buys him.

Lonnara Trin is the Captain of a merchant ship from the all female planet of Zetta Prime where sexual relations with a male are considered unnatural and wrong. She has no use for males personally, but she needs a big, muscular slave or her business will suffer—Thrace fits the bill.

Soon Mistress and slave are embroiled in a desperate conflict which draws them intimately together. To her surprise, Trin actually begins to have feelings for her slave. And though Thrace swore to be free, he finds himself devoted to his new Mistress. When their differences threaten to tear them apart, Trin tries to grant Thrace his freedom. But she doesn’t realize that his heart has already been… Enslaved.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
What would happen if a slave and his mistress fell in love?  What if they were from two very different worlds, one all female and one all male?  Could it really work out?  Enslaved book fourteen in the Brides of the Kindred series by Evangeline Anderson, once again brings us to the collectively created world of Kindred Warriors, strong women and bonds created by the Goddess herself.  
Continuing the storyline from the last novel, we are thrust into a story that will have you in stitches one moment, in tears the next and yearning for more until the very end.  Ms. Anderson’s creative mind will blow you away as you read page after page.  The visions she develops, both captivates and inspires.

Thrace S’ver is a Havoc.  The Havoc long ago were a part of the Kindred race, but renounced their partnership and declared never to bond with any female.  The Havoc much like the Kindred are huge males, who protect those they care about.  When Thrace was young he was sold as a slave.  It was a dark and horrific experience for him.  However, after finding himself on the auction block again he vows to kill whoever buys him.  Then he meets his new mistress, Trin and unwillingly, everything changes for Thrace.

Lonnara Trin is from Zetta Prime an all female world.  She is the captain of her own ship and has found herself in need of a male for business purposes, of course.  Trin must acquire a male from the Flesh Bazaar to serve as her slave so that she may sell her goods to a dominating sister world, Yonnie Six.  Instantly when she sees Thrace up for auction she is drawn to him.  Although she doesn’t understand this desire he creates in her, they set out on an adventure that only the Goddess herself could've predicted.  

When push comes to shove, Evangeline Anderson delivers time after time.  Her masterful art of penmanship has me enthralled as a reader. I can’t seem to get enough of her Brides of the Kindred series.  This book as well as the rest of her series is a must have in any library. With every word and every page I become more deeply entrenched in her novels.  Hoping that the stories will never end.  I can’t wait to see what happens in the next novel.

As soon as I was within reach, he reached out and linked his hands around my waist. I dropped my purse to the carpet and wrapped my arms around his neck. The warmth and comfort of his arms instantly relaxed me, my body leaning into his. It was as if Aiden was exactly what I’d been needing, even when I had no idea I needed anyone. He was more than that, though. He had always been more than a man I would spend time with, a man I slept with. It was deeper than that. I knew that the friendship between us would last even after the physical side of our relationship eventually stopped. “Forgot how good you smell,” he replied, pulling his head back. “And I forgot how good you are for me in all ways.” “You’re good for a man’s ego, Aly,” he said with a grin and a squeeze of his arms. “Now, are you gonna make me stand out here all night, or are you going to invite me in?” “Detective Lawrence,” I said in feigned shock, holding my hand over my heart. “Shouldn’t you be warning me against inviting strangers into my apartment?” He pulled my body hard against his, dropping his lips first to my mouth then dragging them along my jaw before he stopped just below my ear. “I’ve been inside you more times than I can count, Aly, and I still can’t get enough of you. Doesn’t that tell you something?” Every word he said, every stroke of his fingers on my hips as he said them, sent jolts of electricity through me. My breathing sped up and my heart raced. He always had that effect on me and in that moment—and the head space I was in—it was exactly what I needed. I turned my head and ran my tongue around the curve of his ear before sucking his lobe between my lips and letting it go. “Wanna come inside, Detective Lawrence?” I rasped. He stepped back and bent down to pick up his duffle bag and my discarded purse. “Thought you’d never ask.”   taste teaser 1
