Title: Seducing the Billionaire's Brother
Author: Marquita Valentine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 28, 2019


Blurb
 
Pleasure before business. Always.
Connor Montgomery doesn't give a damn about his world-renowned last name or the endless list of women who only want him for his billions. There's only one woman for him... his best friend since childhood, Faith. Unfortunately, as a vital employee of his family's company, she's beyond off-limits.

Too bad he's never been one to follow the rules.

Faith Holt is in desperate need of money... for all the wrong reasons. Stuck between coming clean and falling off the face of the earth, she comes up with a crazy, over the top plan. But to pull it off, she realizes that the only person who can help is the last person she wants to involve since it may require crossing the line.

Too bad she can't stop herself from resisting Connor and his wicked ways.

After years of being "just friends" and looking out for each other in the best of ways, Connor and Faith may have to decide what's worse: resisting the temptation that's always existed between them or finally giving in to it.

This is a contemporary 'friends to lovers' billionaire romance.

Excerpt
 
“You can’t get rid of me that easily.” Connor struggled to keep his tone light. He had no idea what had gotten into Faith… unless her plans were code for a date with a new boyfriend.  Something she had every right to pursue, especially given that he hadn’t made a move on her.
Ever.
Their relationship meant too much to him. Faith was too precious to potentially lose, even if it meant he suffered in the meantime. However, that didn’t mean he liked the fact that she was looking for something he couldn’t possibly give her, not even with the billions he owned.
“I’m not trying to get rid of you, Mr.—”
“Connor. I think we’re past formalities, don’t you?” he said, peeved that she’d treat him differently because of his last name.
She leaned forward, her hair like a dark waterfall pooling on the top of the counter between them. “I’m at work and I have work to do.”
“I don’t care.” He slashed his hand through the air. “You’re using my last name to put a wall between us.”
“Here, there is a wall between us,” she said, her tone insistent. Her brows crashed together as she lowered her voice, “What’s gotten into you?”
He avoided meeting her gaze. “Are you dating someone?” He all but growled the question like an animal. He knew the day would come that she’d find someone to replace him, but it felt like a knife in the back.
“I have plans to go on a date.” She crossed her arms over her chest. “You should do the same thing. Heck, I’ll help you find someone. Okay?”
No, it wasn’t okay because he’d already fucking found his perfect match and she stood in front of him.  “Pass.”
She sighed thickly. “You’re being unreasonable.”
“I’m being honest,” he snapped.
“You’re being a jerk and that’s not like you.”
“Maybe I’ve changed.”
“In the last ten minutes?” She shook her head. “I don’t think so.”
He both loved and hated how well she knew him. “I have to go.” He stalked away, tossing over his shoulder, “Best of luck on your date, Ms. Holt.”
“Don’t you walk away from me, Connor Aiden Montgomery ,” she called after him.
He stopped, slowing turning, bracing for the impact of this woman who truly didn’t give a damn about his last name.
Faith raised her dark brows at him, her pale blue eyes flashing. Her cheeks were pink with anger. In her black pencil skirt, bright green blouse and conservative heels, she looked every inch the librarian.  And she was so damn beautiful that it made his heart ache.
She marched up to him, her finger wagging at him. “You need to apologize.”
He exhaled. “I’m sorry.”
“That’s better.” She smiled up at him, her plump lips a temptation that took every ounce of his will to resist. “When we get together for dinner tonight, I expect you to not only cook but to be in a much better mood.”
“Yes, ma’am.”
She narrowed her eyes. “Stop trying to distract me with your Scottish accent.”
He gave her an innocent smile. “Wouldn’t dream of it, lass.”
“Now, I have to go back to work.” She adjusted his tie, fussing over him and he loved every damn second of it.  “Are we okay?”
“Yes.” He grabbed her hand, pressing to his heart. “I promise to be on my best behavior this evening.”
“Good because I have high standards, and I need to know your opinion of the guy that I have plans with this weekend.”
His gut twisted.  “Consider me at your service.”  Only he knew, for the first time, he wouldn’t be able to be completely honest with her.
In fact, for the first time during their decades of friendship, he was jealous.

A life, future, and love I don’t get to choose.

I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
 
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants. Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother's arms.

Eighty-One Nights by Georgia Cates

 
Eighty-One Nights (Beautiful Illusions Duet #1) by Georgia Cates Release Date: April 9th
 
   
   
Blurb: Beautiful, penniless American girl meets handsome, wealthy Scotsman.
Sounds like the beginning of a fairy-tale romance?
It’s not.
This story begins with a contract.
And an exchange of money.
A lot of money.
An angel perches nervously on one shoulder.
A devil lounges smugly on my other.
And even that dark little bastard is leery of what I’m doing.
Maxwell Hutcheson wants the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And I’m going to give it to him.
I’m not supposed to enjoy being his whore.
I’m also not supposed to fall in love with him.
But I do. Both.
When our contract expires, I will walk away.
Because I have to.
But he’ll always have a piece of me.
I’ll mask my sorrow with a smile.
I’ll hide my love with indifference
… all while it’s killing me softly.
A fairy-tale romance.
It isn’t mine to have.
And this man I’ve come to love so dearly isn’t my happily ever after.
About Eighty-One Nights:
While the characters from Eighty-One Nights are entirely new, their storyline is a combination of fresh material and carefully selected themes, scenes, and settings from The Beauty Series, The Sin Trilogy, Dear Agony, and Indulge. This is intentional. I chose some of my favorite elements from previous releases and interjected them into Hutch and Lou’s story. Let’s call it a “story fusion” between our old favorites and new material. This work was briefly released under a pen name and was titled The Girlfriend Experience.
 
Excerpt: Brady watches the server’s arse as she walks away. “Tell me what kind of lass that you’re looking for and maybe I can help you find her.”
“I don’t have any particular physical characteristics in mind. I just want to look at her and… feel something.”
“Feel what? A stauner?” Brady can be such a dobber sometimes.
“I can get a hard-on by myself. I’m talking about a connection. I want to be drawn to her.”
“Answer this for me, Max. Do you want to hold her hand or fuck her?”
“I’d like to do both actually.”
Brady twists in his chair. “There are two kinds of Inamorata women—those who fuck and those who don’t. Look around. Some of the women have a pink rosebud pinned to their left shoulder. It’s a symbol meaning that they are willing to fuck and don’t mind being asked to do so. No pink rosebud, no pussy.”
I hadn’t considered that possibility. I guess that I thought they’d all be willing to have sex for money.
“You might want to keep an eye out for a rosebud while you’re looking for this lass that you want to connect with. Because your cock won’t be making any kind of connection with her if she’s not wearing a rosebud.”
I believe that my choices were just narrowed down significantly; many of these women are missing a rosebud.
“Two Tomatins,” the server says as she places our drinks on the table. “Can I bring you anything else?”
“That’s all for now. Thank you.”
Brady holds up his glass. “Here’s to you finally getting out again. And getting shagged.”
“I’ll drink to that.”
We toss back our whiskies and I look around, searching for that special woman who catches my eye. I quickly realize that I’ll never find what I’m looking for by sitting in the dark corner all night. “Come on, let’s do this.”
Brady and I talk to many women over the next two hours and I become discouraged. This gala is my only chance at finding a woman who will be agreeable to my terms, but no one stands out as a contender.
With each passing minute, tonight’s search is looking more and more like a failure. What a fucking disappointment. I was so sure that I was going to find what I was looking for.
“Now here is the woman that you must meet.” Brady takes her hand, kissing the top. “You’re looking lovely as always.”
The woman looks at me and smiles. “Always such a charmer.”
“Max, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Cora, the beauty and brains behind Inamorata.”
Long blond hair. Brown eyes. Flawless teeth and smile. Perfect cosmetics. She looks midforties, but I’d bet that she’s older and does a great job of pulling off the look of a much younger woman.
“This is my best mate, Maxwell Hutcheson.”
She holds out her hand and I choose to go with a simple handshake, leaving off the kiss. “It’s a pleasure.”
“How very nice it is to meet you, Mr. Hutcheson. I hope that you’re finding everything to your liking this evening.”
“I’m enjoying the gala very much. Thank you for extending an invitation for me through Brady.”
“It was my pleasure, but your arm is empty, Mr. Hutcheson. Have you not found an inamorata to suit your taste?”
I should choose my words wisely; I don’t want to insult this woman. “Brady and I have spoken to many beautiful and interesting women tonight. I’ve found it difficult to choose one.”
“I’d like the opportunity to change that. Would you be willing to tell me what you’re interested in? I’m certain that I can assist you in finding the perfect inamorata for your needs.”
I don’t see the point. Not a single woman in this room stands out to me but if she wants to try, then let her. “I’m looking for a three-month arrangement with a woman who is willing to remain completely innominate to everyone within my world except me.”
“Obscurity is my specialty, Mr. Hutcheson. I have someone in mind, but she’s fresh out of training. Is that something that you’d be open to trying?”
“Actually, inexperienced is preferable.” I want a true girlfriend experience with this woman. It would be a turnoff if her actions were robotic, as though she’s simply going through the motions like so many times before.
“I have the perfect inamorata for you. She’s brand new so you’d be her first client. The girl is beautiful, intelligent, interesting—the whole package. How does that sound to you?”
Sounds like a definite contender if she lives up to what Cora promises. “I’d like to meet her.”
Cora gestures to the back of the room. “Right this way.”
 
About the Author: Georgia resides in rural Mississippi with her wonderful husband, Jeff, and their two beautiful daughters. She spent fourteen years as a labor and delivery nurse before she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an author and hasn’t looked back yet.
When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. When she’s being domestic, she’s listening to her music and visualizing scenes for her current work in progress. Every story coming from her always has a song to inspire it.

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

What Reviewers Are Saying...

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

Before We Fell, an all-new contemporary romance from Stacey Lynn is releasing April 9th.

BeforeWeFell-FINAL.jpg

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The horror that rocked my small town last winter also brought Noah Wilkes into my life. The first almost broke all of us, but the second changed everything.

He stomped into my classroom all angry scowls and rudeness, the big-shot lawyer who was always too good for this small town. But the moment his smile softened toward his niece, it was me that melted.

The heartbreak that brought him back also brought me closer to him, to the man he hides from the world behind his swagger and aggression. The man I couldn’t help but fall for.

But life has a way of throwing a curveball when you least expect it, and this one could cost me everything--even him.

Turned out, our fates were written in the sky before we ever met—

Before we fell.

Excerpt
 
Pressing the doorbell for Olivia's place, I step back. Only the porch light is on. No light shines from inside. I can't imagine she and her roommate are already in bed. I raise my fist and knock, a soft three-tap, just in case.
 
From the other side, I hear a soft meow: Dio.
 
"Hey buddy." He meows again. I picture him rubbing his cheek against the door. "I guess no one else is home. I'll see you later."
 
Turning, I chuckle. Olivia's got me talking to her cat now.
 
She's got me doing all kinds of things—like picking up her father. I wanted to see her before I left, even if only to wish her luck for her first day at DCF. Maybe see if there's anything I should know before meeting him, or if there's anything she wants me to scope out before she meets him.
 
She isn't home, though, so there's not much I can do, other than go back to the club house and try to get some sleep.
 
I walk slowly back to the Screamin' Eagle. The last thing I want to do right now is go to bed, mostly because I don't want to get up at the ass crack of dawn to drive all the way to Lewisburg. Traveling by train would take longer, and neither my President or Treasurer were willing to pony up for a plane ticket. Worst of all, I have to take a cage. It'll be more comfortable than riding all the way down, but the more I ride, the less I want to be in a car.
 
I swing onto the bike and grab my helmet. Securing it in place, my fingers pause. Olivia might be working tonight. That would explain why she isn't home. There's also a chance she's at my cousin's, but I'd rather not ride all over town trying to track her down. If she's already at the club, I might be able to talk her into staying the night. That way she can crash in my room after work, and I can see her before I go. Maybe even see her naked.
 
Two birds, one stone.
 
With that happy thought, I fire up the Screamin' Eagle, wincing a little as I imagine poor Dio hiding from the noise. Ever since Eli, he's been so skittish. If Olivia hadn't already killed him, I'd kill the motherfucker myself. Who the hell tries to kill a tiny, defenseless kitten?
 
I wish she'd told me what was going on before it got that bad.
 
That's Olivia for you. She can take care of herself, which is one of the things I love most about her.
 
I nearly stomp on the back brake.
 
I love her.
 
It's a whole-body realization. The road tips upward, the bike falls down into the sky. I float for a moment, fingers and toes tingling. Then I slam back into my seat, the bike firmly on 63. Somehow I still have my balance.
 
I have to tell her. I've never been good at keeping my feelings to myself. My father's headstone is proof of that. It's either tell her, or walk away, and I already know I can't do that.
 
I can't tell her, either.
 
She shut me out when I suggested we move in together. I can only imagine what she'll do if I tell her I love her.
 
I love her.
 
The more I repeat it, the more woozy my stomach is, like I've had a few drinks and I'm warmed all the way through. At the same time, it makes me need a drink.
 
There's a good chance I don't really love her.
 
I have no idea what it feels like to be in love. I know what it's like to love someone—my little cousin. I know what it means to be loved—my cousin again. But the odds that I wholly, truly love the first woman I laid eyes on after getting out—not to mention fucked in the back of a station wagon—are slim to none.
 
I've been lonely for so long, I'm just imprinting on her.
 
That's got to be it. Because there's no way someone like me can really love her, not now. What I think I feel for Olivia can't be real.
 
Not after twenty years of crushing in noses with my fists. I don't deserve it.
 
She doesn't deserve me.

My Review
5 Stars
A Risky Prospect by Elizabeth Barone is book Two in the River Reapers MC Series.  This continues the story of Cliff and Olivia, so you should really read the previous book 'A Disturbing Prospect' first.
We pick up their story with Olivia working to move forward by graduating and getting a job as a social worker.  Cliff is still working as a bouncer along with growing his feelings toward Olivia.  But then the past comes forward and revenge is set in motion...but will they survive the past and revenge.
This is a page turner of a story but it is a Dark Romance so there are upsetting scene that might not be for everyone, so please consider the strong subject matter before getting this book.  With that said if you are into Dark reads then this one be one for you.

Blurb

After a bad decision lands me a role on a reality show, I expect it to be my big break as a TV star. Despite getting kicked off the first night, I land on my feet again when a talent agent who saw the show offers me an audition as back-up dancer for a popular rock band.

Knowing this could be my stepping stone is exciting, but the real thrill is watching Brody bang on his drums every night. It’s a bad idea for a dancer to hook up with a band member, but after he kisses me, I can’t stay away.

Facing the consequences was inevitable, and it only takes one scandalous mistake from my past to cause our complete destruction.

Bad decision or not, I always manage to come out on top… until I don’t.

Salvatore by Cecy Robson

SALVATORE

by Cecy Robson Publication Date: March 13, 2019 Genres: Adult, Gritty, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

 
 

SYNOPSIS

Desperate men do desperate things . . .
Salvatore Torre is a dangerous man. If you’ve lived the life Sal has, rage is to be expected and maybe so is heart. After his father killed his mother in a jealous rage, Sal was left to raise his two younger brothers, becoming a parent long before he was ready.
Desperate for money to support his family, Sal sought help from his old friend, Vincent Maggiano, the son of New Jersey’s top crime boss being groomed to take over his ailing father’s empire.
Sal never planned to join the mob. He also never planned to fall for his brother’s sweet and ultra conservative counselor, Adrianna Daniels.
Aedry isn’t the type of girl Sal is usually drawn to. Her skirts are longer, her hair is tamer, and her heels aren’t clear. But he can’t deny the attraction he feels. And Salvatore’s dark, sexy, and dangerous persona is the exact opposite of the clean-cut business men who usually catch Aedry’s attention.
Neither planned on a life of crime nor did they plan on love. But now, both are in too far.

Salvatore by Cecy Robson is the story of Salvatore Romero and Adrianna Daniels.
Sal had to take over raising his brothers after his father and mother died at his father's hands.  So he ended up going to the family mob Vincent Maggiano to be able to keep his family together.  Which he pretty much sold his sole to keep his brothers.   Now Sal is knees deep in and he meets Adrianna who is his brother school counselor.  Adrianna is the button up, awkward bookish type so different from what women Sal goes with.  But Adrianna is nothing but loving and caring which slowly makes Sal want to be the man that Adrianna deserves.
Enjoyed their story.

The Winter of My Love

by J.L. Lora A Love for All Seasons, #2 Publication Date: March 15, 2019 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone

AVAILABLE NOW!

 
 

SYNOPSIS

Spencer Grayson’s structured world is collapsing. The surrogate he hired to carry his and his late wife’s child has gone missing and the wrong woman is inseminated. There weren’t supposed to be loose ends in this transaction, but it’s turning into a zero-sum game he can’t afford to lose.
Artist Winter Alexander has painted a perfect picture for her life. But when a routine procedure results in an accidental pregnancy, the realistic portrait she painted turns surreal. It’s an error she can’t brush away with a tube of titanium-white, no matter how much she might want to. Especially not when the Grayson is determined she become his substitute surrogate.
To Grayson, Winter is an abstract piece, a collection of soulful shapes and swirls he’s hopelessly mesmerized by. One he wouldn’t have envisioned in his life before. Winter finds Grayson controlling at first, but beneath those cold eyes lies a longing, a torch of desire and vulnerability that makes her agree to things she’d never considered.
They embark on a 40-week journey in the name of a child, navigating through a sea of self-doubt, conflicting emotions and rising feelings. When these nine months are over, will Grayson be able to convince Winter to make him and the baby part of her picture-perfect landscape? What happens next is something neither of them sees coming.

5 Stars
The Winter of My Love by J.L. Lora is book Two in the A Love for All Seasons Series.  This is the story of Winter Alexander and Spencer Grayson.  I haven't yet read the previous version, so for me this was a standalone book. 
Spencer wife has died and he has went forward to have the baby that was wanted but finds out the surrogate who was to carry his and his past wife has gone.   But he does soon learn there was someone else that was inseminated with his child.  Winter is taken by surprise for sure when she finds out that she hasn't just been sick but pregnant after a routine procedure.  So now Winter has a unexpected pregnancy along with a very unexpected baby daddy in her life.  At first she find Spencer cold and harsh but she slowly starts to realize that he is just protecting himself from future hurts.
I really enjoyed their story and a different take on a romance story.  Its one that you won't be able to put down...loved it.

Excerpt
 
“The dark night of the soul? Mind telling me what the hell that was about?” The heavy wooden door echoed through the tight chamber when it slammed against the door jamb.
Bastien remained still across the small sacristy, head bowed as he continued to work quietly, deft fingers sliding thin, golden ropes of sacred fabric through his fingers. “I’d rather know what you think.”
Frustration thickened my blood. “I’m your dark night of the soul?! I think you went a step too far.”
“If that’s what you call a step too far I’d hate to hear what you call indecent.” His body was against mine in an instant, my breasts heaving with shallow irritation and grazing the fabric of his vestments.
This profoundly infuriating man was under my skin like no one else had ever been, and just like a bad tattoo, I’d pay a professional to gouge him out of my soul if I could.
“This, for instance,” he hissed, “is surely a step too close to your precious comfort zone.” His body pressed closer, the deep ridge of his arousal cutting at my hip and causing my throat to crack and turn to dust. “Don’t trick yourself into believing that you know you more than I do, Tressa.”
His dark eyes glinted in the dim light, heartbeat vibrating in my ears the only noise in the room. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
I couldn’t catch my breath, his fingers crawling their way past my wrists, grazing the underside of my elbows before his thumbs dug in and he was as far deep inside my own heart as he could possibly go.
“You like the dance, sweet dove, but just when things get intimate you pull away.”
His scathing truth cut like a hot blade.
“No,” I squeaked.
His soft chuckle my only reply, my eyelids already glued shut in opposition of his words.
“You think you only show me the side of you you want me to see,” Bastien’s thumb danced the arch of my brow, “but I see so much more than that.” His eyes flicked down to my lips, hips working softly against mine.
“I’m trained to see the broken parts you’ve spent a lifetime hiding. I’m trained to be your light in the darkness, Tressa, but all that darkness,” his thumbs worked inside my elbows, swaying me against his body as he grit against my neck, “it weighs on me some days. Seminary doesn’t teach a flesh and blood man how to channel all that darkness into…” he flexed behind his robes, my body humming with pure desire for anything more he had to give, “productive activities.”
I didn’t have a reply for him, the way he swallowed my space and caused my heart to thrum like a hummingbird was distracting enough, but his skin setting flame to mine was beyond unbearable.
“What about you, then?” I summoned my earlier anger. “You fancy yourself some sort of holier than thou saint? Forgive me Father, but I call bullshit.”
Bastien’s eyes held mine, the amusement chasing through his chocolate irises giving me enough satisfaction to live on for days.
I squared my shoulders. “You’re a prisoner to your belief.”
His eyebrows rose, shock striking him before his face settled to that same well-orchestrated calm he reserved for his parishioners. “You can bet I’m a prisoner, but not for the reasons you think.”
His admission caught me off guard, but not more than the next moment did.
His palms caught my face, thumbs trailing down the warmth of my throat before he smashed our lips together.
His kiss defiled as much as it gave life.
He raped me to the depths of my soul without ever removing a strip of my clothing.
“But that’s where my beliefs with the church diverge.” He lips teased at the corners of my mouth before his tongue darted out, tasting the bow of my top lip.
Oh sweet fucking heaven.
“I happen to believe it isn’t living if you’re not breaking a rule every now and again.”
He caught the soft whimper on my lips with his, swallowing it instantly before his tongue pushed past the barrier and he was sheathed in me again.
His taste, far deadlier than I’d remembered.
“Despite what my church may believe,” Bastien’s thumbs hooked at my shirt, the warm pads of his fingertips sliding against my skin and cutting through my nerves like hot butter, “I can’t renounce you.”
His palms slid up my torso, divesting me of my shirt while one hand cupped a shiny chalice, drips of wine already making their way between my breasts. Staining the satin bra I wore, pooling in my navel, soaking a rebel river of red overtop the elastic of my panties.
“I know the taste of sin, sweet Tressa, I’ve tasted it every night in my dreams. Craving you is a new and deadlier form of hell than the last I’d overcome.” He dropped to his knees, the empty cup slipping to the floor and soaking his white robes in scarlet before his tongue met my flesh in slow swipes, eyes glinting as he held me flush to his mouth.
Soft mewls formed on my lips as my body fell apart in his arms, limbs loose as he worked his way up my body, tongue tasting every inch of the blessed wine from my skin as he went.
“I am very surely a prisoner to you, my sweet dove.”

My Review
5 Stars
Rebel Saint by Adriane Leigh is the story of Bastien Casteneda and Tressa Torrado.
Tressa has been hurt and let down by life, now at her lowest point in life.  Tressa goes to St. Michael's Catholic Church where she has gotten comfort but when she goes there to find a new Priest, Father Bastien.  Bastien gives her sanctuary but it doesn't take long before their growing feelings become more than they can ignore but can there be something between then in this taboo relationship? 
Enjoyed their story.
