SYNOPSIS:

USA Today and International bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

She has a secret she’s desperate to keep…

With danger looming on the horizon, former FBI agent turned bunny, Bambi Lane, isn’t taking any chances. Taking refuge in a nearby town, she builds a new and comfortable life under the radar, but when trouble comes knocking on her door, she finds that the one thing she’s worked so hard to protect is about to be exposed.

He has a desire that won’t be denied.

Curtis “Taco” Nash, the Spartan’s road captain, has always marched to the beat of his own drum, his only loyalty to that of his brothers and the club. Only one person has ever successfully clawed their way under Curtis Nash’s skin, and when she disappeared from his life without so much as a goodbye, he wrote her off—at least, he tried to. One mention of the one who got away, and he’s consumed with desire—and anger. He wants answers. He wants her. He’s about to get a lot more than he bargained for.

As the war between the cartel and the Spartans heats up, Taco has to decide if he’s going to protect his brothers or the new life that’s waiting for him. When everything hangs in the balance, one thing is clear: No one is safe. Will Bambi and Taco be able to come together and find the strength to take a leap of faith before time runs out?

SYNOPSIS:

Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid.

Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.

SYNOPSIS:

Talia McKinnon said goodbye to love the day she signed the divorce papers and moved across the country looking for a fresh start. With work occupying her days and nights, a relationship is the last thing on her mind, until a run-in with a hot-as-Hades, leather clad biker changes her mind. He’s everything she shouldn’t want but has to have. The problem is, he’s not that easy to catch.

Tucker “Country” Abrams believes in two things: brotherhood and women. He takes his job seriously and his women hard, but at the end of the day, the only loyalty he has is to his club. So when a night with a beautiful stranger threatens to change everything, he’s quick to apply the brakes. But when a little detective work reveals that Talia may be much more than a one-night stand, Tucker is tasked with an impossible decision. Will he push her away, or go against every instinct he has and pull her closer?

Review & Book Giveaway: Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall by Author Eva Darcy

36235875

Book: Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall

Publication date: September 11, 2017

Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC

Price: free with Kindle Unlimited, $2.99 without

Link to purchase: Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall

Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall is a standalone erotic charged retelling of a classic Greek myth. Persephone daughter of Demeter Goddess of harvest and agriculture is taken by Hades the God of the underworld, Ms. Darcy puts spicy spin on a much-loved classic. This book is not for the faint of heart, this story contains scenes that some might find disturbing. If you have a great appreciation for dark erotic romance and can keep an open mind, this will be a satisfying short read.

The story opens with Kore a young woman eager to see the world, she falls in love with the idea of being desired. She soon learns that seduction is a dangerous game with costly consequences. Aidoneus is a tortured soul who does not believe in love, when his eyes lands on the beautiful Kore he is drawn to her innocence and her naiveté. Kore learns that being in love is not all roses and sunshine when your love interest is the God of the Underworld. Erotic romance writer and history scholar Eva Darcy weaves her extensive knowledge of the Greek Gods into a tasty morsel of forbidden romance. The only growth area in this story is it was too short, it leaves an ache to read more and to know more.

The characters were complex, well-developed and believable. The scenes were painted exquisitely on each page, pulling the reader from reality and into a world created by Ms. Darcy. If I had to describe this story in a few words it would be fresh, enticing and electrifying. This is a story told by maiden Kore and then by Persephone the Queen of the Underworld. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Darcy.

After reading this story I loved it so much that I am giving four of my readers an opportunity to read this wonderful book. Below is a link to a digital book giveaway, four lucky readers will be gifted Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall by Eva Darcy. In support of indie authors don’t forget to leave a review as a courtesy, it is not required but will be appreciated.

Summer Maiden: Persephone’s Fall Digital Book Giveaway

About the Author

Eva Darcy is a writer of erotica with a grad degree in history, who used to teach Western Civ. (And secretly spent too much class time dreaming about the stories behind the ancient stories…) Love of writing, love of history, and a slightly naughty romantic streak have all converged into writing stories based on mythology and history. She began with the ancient Greek myth of Persephone because that myth has always resonated so strongly with her. When she saw Bernini’s “Rape of Proserpina” statue in the Borghese Gallery in Rome, she knew she had to write Kore’s story. SUMMER MAIDEN is a stand-alone story, but Darcy intends to write more stories in this world, so expect more cross-over characters in other erotic romance novellas. Next up? Apollo and Daphne.

Family is the only important thing to her, after living for centuries as vampire the only thing she cares about is preserving her human blood line and protecting her last human relative Abigail.

Marie haven’t felt an intense attraction to anyone other than her late human husband; Odin unleashes a desire in her and she can’t seem to ignore it. Marie must stay focused to protect Abigail but a certain sexy wolf won’t let her out of his grasp.

Reborn the first book in the “Princess of The Blood” series is an addictive paranormal romance with a special helping of history. Reborn holds your attention and doesn’t let go until the end. Marie is a well-developed and relatable character that mesmerize, not only the wolf Odin but the reader as well. This is a well-researched book that touches on old traditions and breath-taking imagery of France and the paranormal world nestled in the states.

A love story within a love story is the only words to describe Reborn, the supporting characters Abigail and Egon adds color and depth to an amazing love story. A perfect exploration of an immortal in a modern world, I believed in these characters and I fell in love with them. The only downside of reading this book is it didn’t quench my thirst, it left me desperate and wanting more. Reborn is a beautifully told paranormal love story with a cliffhanger. I look forward to following the story; after reading this story the characters have become a permanent fixture in my life and I must see where life takes them.

Thank you, Ultimate Fantasy Books, for giving me the opportunity to read this wonderful book.

Review and Book Giveaway: The Sheikh’s Accidental Heir

leslie-north

Ahmed Al-Qasimi also known as the Playboy Sheikh seeks to live his life to the fullest. Being the youngest son of the Sultan of Sharjah comes with its special kind of hell. Tired of his brothers and father’s lectures he takes special interest in a caterer Melanie Martin. Melanie is a hardworking chef with her own catering company, she never had to depend on anyone but herself. When the sexy Sheikh Ahmed unleashes his charm she melts and realizes she doesn’t want to turn down his advances. Known for her all work no play demeanor this sexy brunette finally let’s her hair down and shows this sexy royal a side a New York he’ll never forget. Sultan Mohammed Al-Qasimi has had enough of his son’s reckless behavior bringing dishonor to their family name. He arranges a marriage for his youngest son with a woman he sees as the perfect wife to tame is irresponsible son. Ahmed is faced with a tough decision, he must choose between his duty as the Sultan’s son or true love. Can these two star-crossed lovers find true love no matter the obstacles in their way or will duty and life little surprises get in the way?

The Sheikh’s Accidental heir is the second book in the Sharjah series and it can be read as a standalone. This is a happily ever after love story with no cliffhangers. This book shows the allure and the beauty of New York City and it further delves into Arabian culture and customs. The characters were imperfect and relatable. Melanie Martin is an independent woman from a free world and it was refreshing to see her navigate a culture where women don’t have the same rights as she does in her home land. Real fears present themselves but the story shows me why I love romance so much; love really conquers all.

The only growth areas in this book was I would have loved to see more of Sharjah the place. She showed him her home (NYC) it would have been nice to see Ahmed in his own land showing her the splendor of a country with such a rich culture. I enjoyed reading this book and as a follower of the series, Sharjah became a real place for me. The Sheikh’s Accidental heir is a story about love, family and making tough decisions.

If after reading this review you would love to read this book, click on the link below. I am giving 10 readers a free copy of this wonderful love story. Hurry up and get your free copy while it’s there. It’s first come first serve.
