Forbidden by Elisabeth Naughton


Forbidden

by Elisabeth Naughton Publication Date: April 24, 2018 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
She has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin… He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist. I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma. I know he is a threat. He’s entwined in a dangerous world I don’t understand. But that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips. Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked. I need to discover what he’s hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin… **WARNING!** This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret. This is a big story that can’t be told in only one book so there is a cliffhanger – but never fear, book two releases three weeks later. The release schedule is as follows: Books in the House of Sin Series:
  • FORBIDDEN — Book 1 — April 24, 2018
  • DECEIVED — Book 2 — May 15, 2018
  • UNDONE — Book 3 – June 5, 2018

About Elisabeth Naughton

Before topping multiple bestseller lists—including those of the New York Times, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal—award winning author Elisabeth Naughton taught middle school science. A voracious reader, she soon discovered she had a knack for creating stories with a chemistry of their own. The spark turned into a flame, and Elisabeth now writes full-time. Elisabeth has penned over thirty books and continues to write in multiple genres. Her books have been translated into numerous languages and have earned several award nominations, including three prestigious RITA® nominations from Romance Writers of America. In 2017, REPRESSED, the first book in her Deadly Secrets series, won the RITA® for best romantic suspense. Her work has been praised by the Chicago Tribune as being filled with “deadly intrigue, high adrenaline action, and scorchingly hot passion.” Kirkus calls her “a writer talented enough at weaving a yarn to get her readers ensnared in it.” When not dreaming up new stories, Elisabeth can be found spending time with her husband and three children in their western Oregon home, wrangling two needy cats, or chasing after one very rambunctious Dalmatian.
 
My Review
4 Stars
Forbidden by Elisabeth Naughton is the first book in the House of Sin series.  This is the story of Luciano Salvaciti and Natalie James.  
Natalie's best friend Elena, died of a drug overdoes but Natalie thinks there more to it.  Natalie knows that her friend never did drugs and wouldn't...watch she does know is that she started a new job emailing her some clues of what she was into.  Natalie is out to find out what happened to her and she goes to get a job at Covet where she feels will help lead her to the answers she needs.  Luc runs the company and he knows there is something different about Natalie....an attraction that can't be denied. 
Please beware this is a dark romance that may have trigger issues for some. In addition, this does end with a cliffhanger to set us up for the next installment in their story.

Lord_of_Fortune_1800x2700Lord of Fortune, an all-new historical and romantic standalone from Darcy Burke is LIVE!

Dashing adventurer Penn Bowen is dedicated to preserving Britain’s history and his carefree, bachelor lifestyle. He’s happiest when he’s in pursuit of knowledge and the occasional liaison with the right woman. So he’s more than a little perturbed when the wrong woman inserts herself into his latest quest—proving that a valuable artifact in Oxford’s museum is a fake. Amelia Gardiner is smart and capable...and determined to prove that Penn is wrong about the treasure her grandfather found.

Amelia won’t allow Penn to denigrate her family’s legacy, and she certainly won’t join the ranks of women who throw themselves at his feet. As secretive and dangerous factions infiltrate their hunt, Amelia and Penn must work together to stay one step ahead. But passion ignites between them and suddenly their alliance is more than a simple convenience. When peril strikes too close, they’ll risk everything they hold dear: family, honor, and a chance for the greatest treasure of all—love.

My Review:
 5 Star
Misadventures with the Boss by Kendall Ryan is book 12 in the Misadventures series.  This is the story of Piper Daniels and Jackson Dane.  This is easily a standalone book.
Piper at a dry spell in her personal life but she just moved and will be starting a new job soon.  Her sister trying to help break the ice for her sets her up on a website for a hookup.  That hookup turned out to be the hottest encounter she has ever had but now it is on to work with the new job.  Piper is stunned to see her one night stand is now her new boss.  Jackson can't forget his time with Piper and he isn't going to let it past like she wants.
This was a great hot quick easy read...loved it!

BLURB:
Fans of New York Times bestselling authors Samantha Young, Sylvia Day, and E. L. James won't want to miss this modern---and deliciously wicked---take on a classic fairy tale . . . She never should have come here. Twice a week, Lily Moore comes to work for me, stealing my breath with her light and beauty and sweetness. She doesn't know the dangerous path she's on. All she knows is that I am a reclusive artist living on a crumbling estate. That I am scarred, broken by life. A beast . . . Lily ignites a hunger unlike anything I've known, one that could shatter the isolated world I live in. Even as I see the same longing for me in her oh-so-blue eyes, I know she belongs to another---one who does not deserve her. But it's just a matter of time before the tension between us breaks. For this beast will have what he desires. To hell with the consequences. This is my world . . . and I will claim my beauty.
ENJOY THIS EXCERPT: Grayson
I can't... Nothing I've ever created with my hands is as beautiful as Lily standing in the doorway of my studio. She's wearing a long-sleeved black jersey dress that accentuates every luscious curve of her body. Black stiletto boots adorn her feet, gilding her sexy form even further. But what has my cock hardened to the point of pain is her hair. I'm so used to seeing it tied up in a ponytail. This evening, however, it falls freely and cascades past her shoulders. How I want to run it through my fingers and then fist it as I take her... "Is something wrong?" she asks innocently. She has no idea how everything is so right at this moment. Say something, you fool. She'll think something really is wrong. "You are stunning, Lily. Words just fail me." A smile of relief lights up her pale face. "Thank you," she whispers, now turning a shade of pink at my compliment. Her eyes roam over me. "You don't look so bad yourself." I straighten out the collar on my suit jacket. I dressed up for her. I haven't worn a suit in years, and I worried if it would still fit me. But it did, like a glove. "My turn to say thank you, then," I reply. She takes a step toward me. "May I?" My heart stops when she comes closer. I can smell her now, a cloud of lavender wafting around her. She reaches up to adjust my tie. "You have no mirrors in the house, Grayson," she offers as an explanation. She pats it down and looks at her handiwork. "There." I swallow deeply, her scent intoxicating me. "Thank you." I can't take my eyes from hers. Suddenly a loud growl escapes her stomach. We both laugh as she blushes. "Well, that wasn't embarrassing." I offer her my hand. "Let's go feed you."

About the Book:
 
Declan Sinclair is a Highlander who believes his dreams never lie. When he spots Caya at a public house, he knows instantly she is the woman in his dreams—his future wife. Though her brother had promised never to gamble again, he engages Declan in a card game—and the prize is the lovely Caya.
 
Caya Pendarvis has no time for childish things like dreams or fairy-tales or love. She’s the sacrificial lamb on her way to the far north of Scotland to wed a wealthy merchant in exchange for settling her brother’s gambling debts.
 
Winning at cards is one of the many things Declan Sinclair does well. Unfortunately, the ability to court a woman—a talent he lacks—is the only skill he desperately needs to win Caya’s heart.

Excerpt from BETTING THE SCOT:
 
She smiled. “I live here now. I’m your wife.”
His mouth hung open. Did he not believe her? Did he not understand her? Or had he changed his mind? “You do still want me to be your wife, don’t you?”
An odd look appeared on Declan’s face. One she couldn’t interpret. “Well now,” he said. “That all depends.”
“Depends on what?” Oh, God. Was he changing his mind? Did he wake up and realize she was a fool for trying to save her brother?
“I ken you love me, but I need a wife who will trust me,” he said and took a step closer. “I ken it’s a hard thing for you to trust given all the lies your brother had told you. And me, I was wrong to take you from him the way I did. I gave more thought to my daft dreams than I did for your happiness and I’m sorry for that, but…”
“But what?” Hot tears pricked at the corners of her eyes.
“When I thought you were lost to me, when I thought I’d never see you again, I knew that I loved you more than my own life. I was ready to toss my life away to save you. That’s how much I want you, need you, love you.” He held out his hand just like that fateful morning in front of the Crown Tavern. “So, I’m asking you, do you trust me?”

I was a good girl.

 
I ate my vegetables, volunteered at the local autism centre and sat in the front pew of church every Sunday.
 
Then, I got cancer.
 
What the hell kind of reward was that for a boring life well lived?
 
I was a seventeen-year-old paradigm of virtue and I was tired of it.
 
So, when I finally ran into the man I'd been writing to since he saved my life as a little girl and he offered to show me the dark side of life before I left it for good, I said yes.
 
Only, I didn't know that Zeus Garro was the President of The Fallen MC and when you made a deal with a man who is worse than the devil, there was no going back...
 
This is Daddy Zeus Garro's story from Lessons In Corruption. A standalone in The Fallen Men Series.

Welcome to the Dark Side by Giana Darling is book Two in The Fallen Men Series. This is the story of Zeus Garro and Louis Lafayette 'Lou'.I have read the previous book (and loved it) but feel this is easily a standalone book.
Zeus happen to meet Lou when she was 7 years old. Lou was an innocent victim of a shoot out wheres Zeus saved her life. But they both were hurt by a bullet and Zeus ended up killing a person. They never met before but she felt he was her guardian monster angel. Because of that bullet they found out early she had cancer and it help to start treatment early. Lou and Zeus spoke at the hospital and someone how formed a bond that never went away. They became Pen Pals and Lou felt Zeus gave her the strength to fight the cancer and she never lost her feelings that he was her guardian monster.
Later when she became a young teenager Zeus stop writing her scared that she would for a crush or love attachment knowing that she was a good girl not needing to be corrupted by his bad life.
But Lou never stopped wanting to turn away from the girl image and took to the Dark side anyway.
Now Zeus if fighting to do the right thing but Lou is his and always has been so he going to take what is his!
I an a fan of Ms. Darling books so I knew I would enjoy this book but I didn't know how much. I completely loved it and could not put it down....read until I finished it a 4:00am. So worth my book-hangover!!
 
 

 

A Match Made in Bed by Cathy Maxwell


Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as “the Spinster Heiresses” . . .
Miss Cassandra Holwell is too tall, too bookish, and too smart—but she does have money and a father who wants a grand title for her. Cassandra hasn’t felt a desire to marry until she meets the sinfully handsome Duke of Camberly, who captures her imagination . . . until Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry and her family’s sworn enemy, steps in the way.
The Holwells ruined Soren’s family, and he’s lived on the knife’s edge trying to resurrect their fortunes . . . until he considers marrying the Holwell Heiress. Not only would her dowry give him the funds he needs, he has secretly had an eye on the independent-minded bluestocking since they both first realized the differences between men and women.
She likes to read; he has no patience for books. She knows little of sex; he is a man of the world and willing to school her. Her family destroyed his; his offer of marriage may be her only salvation.
Now Cassandra and Soren must learn to love each other for who they are, not what they are—and the lessons are becoming an exercise in absolute pleasure.

Excerpt:
 
Copyright © 2018 Return of the Lycan King: Book 2 Lex and Elizabeth
Candace Blackburn
 
"Alexei, are you okay?"
"No. I'm not." He turned, facing her now but still staying by the window. Keeping distance between them. "If those two... damnable women had not drugged my stew. If you hadn't seen me with them. If you hadn't been attacked. So many what ifs, and so many lost years. All this time, we could've been together. We could've had every night together. Met every morning in each other's arms." He slashed his arm through the air. "No weeks or months spent wondering if I'd get to see you again. No missing you with every beat of my heart."  The tears steadily flowed. His canines had dropped, and his eyes held the unmistakable telltale yellow of a transitioned Lycan. Claws tipped his fingers. Wolf and man seemed to battle for control, and Lex was emotionally raw. "So many nights I wished you were there, so I could tell you I loved you. Every night, I prayed you were safe. And many nights, I asked God why you couldn't be mine. But. You. Were. And the idiocy of three people cost us two thousand years of happiness."
"You're right," she said as she rose off the bed. "I can't understand why any of this happened. I've questioned the very same thing, and can find no answer. But we're here together now. And isn't that what counts?" He watched as she took slow steps toward him, and his expression slowly began to soften. "In a matter of speaking, you claimed me that night in Portugal, and we've been together since."
His eyes momentarily widened in surprise. "Yes, but we spent so many nights apart. Nothing should have separated us. Nothing." He was right. There was no sense trying to talk him down when she believed what Lex said just as strongly as he did. "You mentioned Portugal. Were you following me?"
Nodding slowly, she now stood in front of him. "Yes. Jules made sure I had control of my hungers, and taught me how to use my strengths. Once that was done, and I was confident in my abilities, I went in search of you. By that time, you were serving the King. And I followed you on your missions."
"When I saw you, I damned near lost track of what I was doing."
She smiled, remembering making eye contact with Lex for the first time. The sensation was electric, the pull of a Lycan mate bond weakened, but still present. "But you did your job, and then you came to me."
His claws retracted, and a smile curling his full lips, he nodded. "And then I came to you." He pulled her into his arms, and embraced her firmly. "I mourn all the moments we lost."
"As do I, Alexei. But we have the future."
His chest shook as he exhaled a ragged breath. "Yes we do. I can't lose you again, Elizabeth."
"I'm here now, and I'm not going anywhere.”

My Review:
4 Stars
Candace Blackburn Return of the Lycan King: Lex and Elizabeth by Candace Blackburn.  This is the story of Elizabeth and Lex.  I have read the previous book and feel you will enjoy this one better if you do too because this one starts shortly after the other book left us.
Elizabeth was once a Vampire but now has been transformed back in to a Lycan.  Elizabeth is having to learn to move forward with her mate Lex.  Lex knows he will do anything to protect Elizabeth from getting hurt again. 
I loved reading Lex and Elizabeth feeling toward one another and catching up with the other characters from the previous book.
Overall a exciting read that is hard to put down.

Because I’m not good. I never wanted to be. And I won’t let her go anymore. See, I’m not the hero. When I touch her, it’s with dirty hands.

My Review:
4 Stars
Sergio: A Dark Mafia Romance by Natasha Knight is the story of Sergio and Natalie. 
Natalie had a problem with being clumsy and in the wrong place at the wrong time.  That is how Sergio and Natalie first met when she accident was in a convince store when she was around 14 years old being rob and one of the bad men tried to rape her.  Sergio saved her and took care of the bad men.  Now 6 years later she was trying to get pictures for getting a internship and was caught in a deal that Sergio people were doing.  Sergio knew he wanted her and couldn't seem to let her go. 
This book took you in from the start and I couldn't not put it down until I finished it.  I loved their story but did wish for a ending that would be the level of their love.
Overall enjoyed this book and hope to read more by Ms. Knight.

THE HARDEST FALL by Ella Maise

SBPR-BLOG TOUR (1).jpg
The Hardest Fall, an all new tantalizing contemporary romance by Ella Maise is NOW LIVE!
The Hardest Fall Cover
The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.
At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.
I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.
Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.
He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.
He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.
The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.
Falling.
Hard.

Excerpt:
I stopped speaking when Dylan’s gloved hand—his huge gloved hand—cupped my cheek and gently tilted my face up. The world around me slowed down, and I stood still. I swear to you, I watched his eyes roam my face in slow motion.
“I like having your eyes on me, Zoe.”
I managed to force a nervous smile. His thumb moved on my cheek, rendering me…basically completely helpless.
Forgetting myself, forgetting where we were, I whispered, “I like watching you.”
His tongue peeked out and touched his lower lip. “I know.”
Oh, Dylan, why did you do that?
“I meant I like watching you—liked watching you play tonight. I didn’t mean it to sound like I like watching you when you’re not playing. I definitely wouldn’t watch you if you were just standing there, or I don’t know…I wouldn’t watch you when you’re working out, and I would never watch you if you were—”
“You know why I like watching you?”
The question shut me up pretty quickly, which was probably for the best; who knew what else I would spew out.
“Because I can’t take my eyes away from you. Everything else…it all disappears, and…”
And… And…
“And?”
I tried my best not to look eager for his answer—or let’s say not too eager, because there was no way he couldn’t tell I was very interested and invested in hearing what he was about to say.
He let out a heavy breath and decided not to finish that particular sentence. I’d seen it in his eyes, a slight change, there and gone.
Goddammit!

About Ella
I’m a big dreamer. And that’s how it all started for me, really. Reading and dreaming. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face even when smiling is the last thing on your mind. Crushing on fictional characters is also another bonus. Through my words, if I can manage to make even one-person smile, it means I’ve done my job well.
Writing became my world and I can’t imagine myself doing anything other than creating new characters and telling their stories. You know how some things simply makes your heart burst with happiness? A really good book, a puppy, hugging someone you’ve been missing like crazy? That’s what writing does to me. And all the hard work, all the sleepless nights, all the anxiety that comes with publishing…everything is worth it at the end.

THE HARDEST FALL by Ella Maise is the story of Zoe and Dylan.
This was such a fun read! I loved the funny story how they met. Zoe was a beautiful shy girl where Dylan was the all-around sports guy heading to the NFL.
This was such a easy sweet read! Loved it!
 

 

When Stars Burn Out by Carrie Aarons.


 
 
 
Title: When Stars Burn Out
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Adult
Release Date: April 22, 2018
 
 
 
Blurb

Stars die in one of two ways.

So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.

But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.

And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.

She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

“I’m proud of you for not arguing with me, little one. Maybe you’re starting to learn,” he chuckled his response before bending to kiss her, but this was no mere kiss. The earth stopped on its axis. Her heart began to race, and she could feel it in her ears, but that didn’t matter while he was kissing her. Eventually, he pulled away and looked her in the eye, both of them breathing heavier than they had been.

“You are a gift to me Lainie, and I can’t wait to explore this lifestyle with you. I want you to get cleaned up and get the paperwork filled out. Then after you send it to me, go to bed early. You’ve had a big day, and tomorrow night will be even more.” He walked away before she could answer his demands. After a few steps, he stopped and turned. “The questions will turn you on. You are not to touch yourself tonight. Do I make myself clear?” he asked with his right eyebrow raised.

“You can’t be serious,” were the only words she managed before he was chest to chest with her, leaning over to speak directly in her ear.

“I am totally serious, Elaine. After today, you are mine. That pussy of yours is mine, and all of your orgasms belong to me.” With that, he turned and walked away, taking her breath with him and leaving her unable to argue. So, she did the only thing she could. She did as she was told.

Faced with unimaginable grief and guilt, while learning to simply walk again, Jaymerson knows nothing will never be the same. Family and friends want her to get back to how things were before. But she’s no longer that girl. The only one who understands what she is going through is someone who she has always hated. The other survivor. Hunter Harris is totally off-limits and full of secrets of his own. Though each blame the other for the tragedy, they start to help each other repair their shattered lives. But as the undeniable pull between them intensifies, Jaymerson starts to wonder if she will ever learn the secrets Hunter’s been hiding—or if she even wants to.

Blurb

The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.
 
At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.
I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.
Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.
 
He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.
 
He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.
 
The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.
 
Falling.
 
Hard.

And all the hard work, all the sleepless nights, all the anxiety…everything is worth it at the end. And I'm hoping that reading my books will leave you with that same happy feeling.

My Review:

5 Stars

THE HARDEST FALL by Ella Maise is the story of Zoe and Dylan.
This was such a fun read! I loved the funny story how they met. Zoe was a beautiful shy girl where Dylan was the all-around sports guy heading to the NFL.
This was such a easy sweet read! Loved it!
