Unwrapping a Review of THE PROFESSOR'S SECRET by Peggy Bird

Always a fan of Peggy Bird’s romances because she conjures up the best characters, and with THE PROFESSOR’S SECRET, new from Crimson Romance, she did not disappoint.

***eARC provided by author in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

Blurb for THE PROFESSOR’S SECRET:

English professor Claudia Manchester secretly writes spicy romances as April Mayes, the Queen of Steam. She wants to keep her side job under wraps till she’s secured tenure, but when she’s pressured by her agent to appear at some out-of-state conferences, she agrees … if she can go in disguise. Dressed as her sexier alter ego, she meets historical romance writer and high school history teacher Bradley Davis and passion ignites. But can true love be built on lies? And will he still want her when she reveals her real self?

~*~              ~*~              ~*~              ~*~

As Sir Walter Scott said, “O, what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive.”

Claudia Manchester is a professor of English Lit at Portland State University, and is eagerly awaiting her chance to secure tenure but there’s only one problem…she’s also a romance writer and her agent wants her to start attending author functions such as writers conferences. Her pen name is April Mayes. When she finally gives in to her agent’s request, she agrees to go but only if she can go as April and not as Claudia – in disguise, in other words – but as her alter ego instead of her staid professor self. April is known as the Queen of Steam and so as April, Claudia discovers a whole new side of herself.  

When she encounters a hot and handsome fellow romance writer, high school history teacher, Brad Davis, she discovers that April is much more willing to have fun than Claudia ever was. But what happens when Brad discovers the truth that April/Claire isn’t the real her?

Knowing that a lot of romance writers use pen names, this was a fun story for many reasons. As an aspiring author, I’ve considered the use of one myself but since I’m not a very good web weaver, I figure it would be more trouble than it’s worth to try to keep a cover story straight. Just the problem that poor Claudia seems to find herself in when Brad, who also writes under a pen name – Davis Churchill – begins to unravel her woven web but instead of coming clean, she creates yet another persona tangling her web even more so.

I love how Peggy infused the world of romance writer conference with all that comes with it. How she plunked this poor introverted college professor/sexy romance writer smack down in the midst of it with the undeniably delicious temptation of Mr. Hot and Handsome Brad Davis to keep her on her toes, sweating her woven web, and trying to grab a moment when she can breathe even as she wishes he’d steal away her breath again.

I’ve never had the luck to attend a conference but I know Peggy has and I’m so glad she wrote a story that allowed us to experience one even if only through Claudia and Brad’s eyes. Peggy always creates the most real, alive, and wonderfully delightful characters, people that I would thoroughly enjoy knowing in real life. Claudia and Brad are no exception. They are wonderfully clumsy, each trying to impress, and deceive, while trying to make a connection that will last. Whether, she’s Claudia, April, or Claire, our heroine is as sweet, complicated, and adorable as any romance heroine and Brad is definitely her hero. 

If you love sweet, flirty, and terrifically fun romance, I highly recommend reading THE PROFESSOR’S SECRET by Peggy Bird. It’s a quick, fun read that will have you wishing for your own nom de plume to secret behind in hopes of meeting your own Mr. Hot and Handsome.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review Stop on the Tasty Virtual Book Tour for BLACK LISTED by Shelly Bell with #excerpt & #giveaway

Welcome to my review stop on the Tasty Virtual Book Tour for BLACK LISTED by Shelly Bell, the newest Benediction novel and trust me, this one is explosively good. Stick around for an excerpt & fab giveaway too.

***eARC provided by publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest and unscripted review – I already bought my copy because this one is a definite re-read.

Blurb for BLACK LISTED:

She sacrificed everything to keep him safe…

Five years ago, con artist Lisa Smith broke the first rule of hustling when she fell in love with—and married—her mark, billionaire Sawyer Hayes. The erotic nights spent acting out her darkest fantasies with her husband and Master were the happiest of her life. But when her ruthless father demanded she kill him and take his money, she had no choice but to disappear without a trace…or lose him forever.

He’ll risk everything to have her again…

Now Sawyer has found her, and he has an indecent proposal: submit to him for seven nights and he’ll grant her the divorce she desires. Forced to pretend she no longer loves him, each night spent in his arms is exquisite torture as they reignite their intense passion through role play and ménage. But when a deranged killer out for revenge targets Lisa, she must finally trust Sawyer with the secrets of her past…or neither of them will live to see the future.

Warning: Scenes depicting BDSM, fisting, MMFMM, consensual non-consent, and references to abuse.



My Review:

Let me just say straight out…I love the Benediction series. I cannot get enough of it, and even though it is not a series for everyone, I think everyone should try it on for size just once. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I do either, but it is truly addicting.

We first met Lisa Smith in the White Collared books and frankly, I didn’t like her much. I thought her conniving and was always feeling as if Kate needed to watch her back with her. I guess there was a good reason for that…she’s a con artist. Not just someone who manipulates to get things her way but an all-out, criminally minded, con artist, who came from a family of con artists, and is now hiding out from them—and her husband, Sawyer Hayes.  

Lisa’s real name is Annaliese Hayes nee Hunt. She married Sawyer Hayes, the sexy billionaire computer genius who helped clear Rachel and Logan of murder in BLUE BLOODED. She married him because that’s what her father wanted her to do then divorce him for the money, only he changed his plans and decided she should kill him instead, and take it all. Only one problem with the old man’s plan…Lisa had fallen in love with Sawyer, so she took enough money to appease her hateful father, and left. She left the man she loved, the life she wanted with him, and took along with her a Black List that could put her entire family away for a very long time…her included. She warned her father that if anything happened to Sawyer, the list would go straight to the FBI. She gave up her life to save Sawyer’s. All was well until her picture appeared in the newspaper and Sawyer showed up at Cole and Danielle’s wedding.

Lisa asks him for a divorce. Sawyer says he’ll agree only if she agrees to spend one week as his submissive. Seeing that he was, and still is, her only Master, Lisa agrees because she still craves this man, still loves this man, and wants to protect him by making sure he goes away and stays away from her. The problem is…if Sawyer could find her…so could her father, her brothers and any one of the many marks, she’s defrauded over the years.

As I read each book in the Benediction series, I think Shelly Bell can’t possibly thrill or keep me enthralled as well as the one before but she can, and she does. Having just come off reading RED HANDED immediately before reading BLACK LISTED, I thought nothing could surprise me more, but it did.

BLACK LISTED, book three in the Benediction series by Shelly Bell is raw, rough, suspenseful, and not for the faint of heart when it comes to sex scenes but it’s also, beautiful, emotional, passionate, and overflowing with an intense love between two perfectly matched characters that are getting a second chance at love, marriage, truth, and the future. We are used to second chance romances where a couple who had unspoken feelings for each other come back together and reignite their love and relationship but this time, in BLACK LISTED, this is a married couple, a Master and Sub, two people who had already committed themselves and their hearts to a union torn apart by secrets and lies. It’s unique, it is heart wrenching, and we can’t help but be drawn into their world, their love, and feel the same sense of healing when the truths—all of them—finally come out.

Frankly, I hope Shelly never ends this series but I know it will happen eventually…happily, these are stories I will be revisiting many times in the future. I highly, highly recommend that if you love good suspense, characters rich in realism, a world of the sexually unusual—one that intrigues and makes you wish you were brave enough to venture into—and experiencing love that you wish could exist outside the realm of romance novels then please…read BLACK LISTED by Shelly Bell, and welcome the addiction.

Happy Reading Everyone! 


Excerpt from BLACK LISTED:

Lisa turned and caught sight of Rachel walking toward her with two men by her side.
It took only a moment for it to register.
The long blond hair she loved to tug on during rough sex.
The stubble lining his jaw that used to scratch the skin of her inner thighs as he worked her over with his mouth.
The roguish and lighthearted appearance he maintained in public and the dark dominance that lurked beneath the surface.
It was him.
He was here.
Her Master.
He had found her.
She blinked a few times, trying to see if maybe she was imagining that the man she’d run from four  years ago was suddenly only feet away and talking with her friends as if he knew them. That was impossible, right?
Her heart galloped a wild beat, and the sounds of the crowd disappeared under the roar of her pulse.
She wanted to run from him.
She wanted to run to him.
All the sorrow and regret she’d buried deep down inside came rushing back with a force that nearly bowled her over. And when the ghost from her past stood right in front of her and looked at her like a stranger, the glass of red wine slipped from her shaking hand onto the green grass, the liquid pooling beneath her heels.
Seemingly oblivious to her shock, Rachel smiled, a twinkle of mischief in her eyes. “I’d like to introduce you to Logan’s friend, Sawyer Hayes. Sawyer, this is Lisa Smith.”
Logan’s friend? Sawyer was Logan’s friend? This was the man who had helped Rachel and Logan in Las Vegas when they were framed for murder and running from the FBI?
“Hello,” Sawyer said cordially, standing so close she could feel his body heat radiating off him and smell a scent that reminded her of the best days of her life. “It’s nice to see you again, Annaliese.”
Her mind was a jumbled mess.
Like she was prey caught in the sights of a hunter, she became entrapped in his eyes.
She couldn’t breathe.
Couldn’t speak.
Couldn’t move.
“You know each other?” Rachel said, her brows wrinkled in confusion.
“You could say that,” Sawyer said slowly, still holding Lisa captive with his eyes. “She’s my wife.”
“Lisa is the woman who conned you?” Logan asked incredulously.
Shame heated her cheeks, and she suppressed the threatening tears. Her friends would hate her when they discovered what she’d done. Not that she deserved any less.
And what did it matter? She was about to lose everything. She wouldn’t be surprised if she was arrested at any moment.
Rachel took her hand, but she still couldn’t look away from Sawyer. “I’m sure if she did, she had her reasons.”
Yes, she had her reasons. Dark, dangerous reasons that sometimes woke her out of her sleep in the form of violent nightmares.
And now with Sawyer’s appearance, her nightmares were one step closer to becoming true.

Unwrapping a Review of RED HANDED, a Benediction novel by Shelly Bell

The Benediction series by Shelly Bell continues to blow me away. I know I’ve read them out of order, but it doesn’t matter…I’m totally addicted. RED HANDED by Shelly Bell had me hooked from page one and she surprised me with a bang of a bad guy in the end.

***purchased for my own reading delight but sharing an honest and unscripted review.

Blurb for RED HANDED:

Shelly Bell returns with another steamy and suspenseful thriller set at the exclusive sex club Benediction …




An exhibitionist who's waited her whole life to be seen … 

After her stepmother is abducted, Danielle Walker has no choice but to follow the kidnapper's cryptic instructions. Under the guise of a sex slave trainee, she must infiltrate Cole DeMarco's BDSM club and find evidence of his offshore bank account … or she'll never see her stepmother alive again. But Master Cole is no stranger, and despite the dark past they share, Danielle cannot resist his magnetic pull.

The voyeur who's always been watching … 

As Danielle begins uncovering Cole's secrets, the artistic voyeur arouses her deepest desires, and she surrenders to a fiery passion she never expected. But with time running out to save her stepmother, Danielle and Cole will face off against an evil growing more ruthless by the day … and discover a twisted web of lies, betrayal, and murder that neither saw coming.


~*~               ~*~                ~*~               ~*~

Danielle Walker wakes in the night to find a stranger in her home, her stepmother’s life being threatened, and she’s given instructions to retrieve bank account information hidden in a place where no one but one man has access…the private quarters of the owner of the most prestigious sex club in Michigan—Benediction. So her only choice is to become a sex slave in training under the one man who has haunted her dreams and sexual fantasies since she was a teen—Cole DeMarco.

Cole DeMarco is surprised but pleased that Danielle Walker, the daughter of his former partner, has submitted an application to sex slave training at Benediction but he can’t help but wonder what she’s up to, and if she’s up to all it means to be a sex slave. When unusual things start happening with Danielle in the center of the action, Cole is determined to discover who, and for what reason, is behind it all. 

Danielle may have set out to seduce him but she ends up being seduced by the world of delights available to her and Cole at Benediction.

RED HANDED, the actual book one of the Benediction series by Shelly Bell simply blew me away. Having read these out of order didn’t interfere with my enjoyment of the series at all but I am surprised that the first real Benediction book turned out to be one of the best. Having already read BLUE BLOODED, I knew somewhat what to expect but in fact, I had no idea just how seductive the world of BDSM as Shelly paints it could be.

The characters, the mystery, the suspense, and the sensuality of RED HANDED is what hooked me in, seduced me, if I may say, and now has me totally addicted to this series. Shelly’s characters are alive and people that I would love to know in real life…especially the men. She kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing who might be behind everything but I have to admit, who it was…I never saw it coming. She got me and that’s usually very difficult to do.

The Benediction series by Shelly Bell, as well as the White Collared books are not exactly for everyone but if you’re willing to take a step on the wild side, or if you read the dreaded SHADES books, then I highly, highly recommend reading RED HANDED by Shelly Bell. Darlings, the SHADES books haven’t got a clue as to how hot, how amazing, how inviting, and downright exhilaratingly sexy, BDSM can really be.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Unwrapping a Review of NO EXIT, book two in the Exit Inc. series by Lena Diaz

There is nothing I love better than a good action read and NO EXIT, book two in the Exit, Inc. series by Lena Diaz gives the reader that and mystery as well as steamy sexy romance. I didn’t want this one to end.

***purchased a copy for my personal reading and sharing an honest and unscripted review


Blurb for NO EXIT:

Lena Diaz returns to the thrilling world of EXIT Inc., with two enemies who become unlikely allies—and discover that only through love can they save each other...

As an agent of the Equalizers, Jace Atwell will risk everything to destroy EXIT Inc., the corrupt antiterrorist group, before more innocent lives are lost. The only way to infiltrate EXIT is by getting close to the CEO's beautiful daughter, but when they get a little too close, Jace finds himself falling for the woman he is duty-bound to deceive.

Whatever clandestine activities EXIT is involved in, Melissa Cardenas refuses to believe that her father is responsible and is determined to prove it. So when sexy, smooth-talking Jace comes clean about his motives, Melissa drops a bombshell of her own: she's been investigating too—and she wants to help him find the truth.

The chemistry between Melissa and Jace is undeniable, but their opposing views of justice make teamwork tricky. With their lives on the line—and the truth something neither of them expected—the only way to survive will be to trust their hearts and each other . . . if they can.

~*~            ~*~              ~*~              ~*~ 

Melissa Cardenas has been suspicious of her father, Cyprian Cardenas and secrets he may be keeping in regard to business as usual at Exit, Inc. (EXtreme International Tours) where she works too, for a while. So when a mysterious van runs her off the road one day, and a handsome and very sexy ex-Navy SEAL comes to her rescue, she begins to suspect everyone, especially Jace Atwell.

Jace is on a mission for the Equalizers, a group dedicated to taking down Cyprian and EXIT, Inc. before any more innocent people are killed under manipulated orders. Having done surveillance on Melissa for a while, he’s ready to get close and try to determine if she is a good guy or bad. His ‘getting connected’ to her didn’t go quite as planned but he got close anyway. When she proves smarter than expected, he comes clean threatening to overthrow the entire mission and the safety of the Equalizers so instead, teams up with her to find out the truth—a truth that threatens their lives.

Lena Diaz delivers an action-packed story from the first page to the end. I was glued to the pages from the start and barely took a breath as things became more and more dangerous for Melissa and Jace…even as things got more and more sexually tense between the two of them. Okay, the ending seemed a little rushed but frankly, after the rollercoaster ride of action, danger, sexual tension, and edge of the seat nail-biting…who cares.

NO EXIT, book two in the Exit, Inc. series by Lena Diaz delivers and delivers BIG! As usual for Lena, the characters are alive, intelligent, skilled, and the interaction between them is palpable and real. I even found myself ignoring a few errors I stumbled upon along the way. I didn’t care because the story was that good, and I had to keep turning the pages.

If you love action, romance, danger, and a story with more twists and turns than a cross-country road race then you will definitely want to read NO EXIT by Lena Diaz. If you don’t like suspense, nail-biting tension, and excitement then by all means…pass it by…I dare you.

Happy Reading Everyone!

If it lives, it can die...

For a thousand years, the Ilyium druids have hunted the Dracones without mercy.

At seven, in a terrifying moment, Tierney lost her world and fled to Earth, keeping her true nature secret from humans.

But a nightmarish past is not easy to escape.

Now, years later, that truth is abundantly clear every time she looks into the eyes of the man she secretly loves, seeing a torment that draws her to him even as he pushes her away.

Jax battles his desires for Tierney alongside his inner demons, ashamed to speak of a past he cannot forget.

Tierney's claws raked him again while her inner walls gripped his cock and squeezed. Exquisite bliss consumed him, tearing a ragged shout from his throat. Tierney shuddered and climaxed with a strangled cry, her arms holding him close.
"Oh! Don't stop, don't stop!" she cried, eyes glowing a deep dark purple as her walls released and gripped him again. Jax’s dragon blazed inside him and he frantically licked his way up her sleek, exposed neck, seeking what, he didn't know.

Release Blitz for STRIPPED RAW by Prescott Lane with #giveaway

 
 STRIPPED RAW
by Prescott Lane

available now in print at Amazon

Kenzie
I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie—the yes girl! In every area of my life, but one—Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love—to Kane—to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw?


Kane
Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy, as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugar coat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your shit, and hope they love you anyway.
