Operation Ginger Avenger, book 24 in Divine Creek Ranch series

Hello and welcome!

I just finished the latest release, book 24 in the Divine Creek Ranch series by one of fave authors, Heather Rainier.

Operation Ginger Avenger

Jessica Bright came to Divine, Texas seeking refuge for her and her unborn child from the man who had held her captive. With time she’s overcome the trauma, but in her eyes she isn’t just a hot mess, she’s the hot mess.

Tank Drummond and Troy Burnett have watched patiently as Jessica has gotten her life on track—perhaps too patiently. When a bit of innocent online matchmaking help from Tank’s mother goes viral, they’re pushed into pursuing Jessica even though they risk scaring her off completely.

Enter one scary dude doing the bidding of her original captor from his permanent prison cell. Four Bits owes Trevor Dornan a big favor and he always pays his debts.

Right or wrong, the ladies of Divine and Lusty, Tank’s mother, and even little Bella take matters into their own hands and pull off an adventure that will go down in Divine history as…Operation Ginger Avenger.

My review

5 stars

You would think that after so many books based in the same town, mostly same characters with new ones added in every book, it would get tiresome, right? Well, I can tell you that even after finishing the 24th one, the just released, Operation Ginger Avenger, every story in the series is unique and entertaining.

Mixing suspense, some drama, the dreaded small town mindset over which the main characters eventually win over, LOL humour, twists and some ‘scorching-I-need-ice-water’ hot scenes makes this story a page turner.

My heart was breaking for Jess seeing how she struggled with her PTSD trying to stay strong for Belle, her little daughter, to overcome the brutality of her captivity. With help and encouragement from her men, Troy and Tank, she finally makes headways and allows herself to hope and be happy. Beloved Grandma Kate (from the Lusty, Texas series) made an appearance again, with a little help from her and the support of the women (and men) of Divine, the Jess, Troy and Tank can finally find their HEA. Despite the overprotectiveness of the men of Divine, the women are strong , independent and I love seeing the next generation is brought up to be the same. The scene where little Rose Marie brings down the ‘bad man’ with her rope is awesome, I cheered for her. The feel of the close knit circle of friends left me with a good mood. The nicknames they come up with are hilarious. The ending scene is so happy *sigh*

If you like HEA stories with soul that also have ménage relationships, I recommend this book and the series.

Mach One, book 3 of ICE : International Clandestine Enterprise series

Hello and welcome!

If you remember I had a chat a month ago with Mike, the hero from Body Shot, book 2 in the ICE : International Clandestine Enterprise series by one of my fave authors, Amy Jarecki.

mach-one-web

The latest in the series, Mach One was released on January 2, 2017.

Just looking at the mysterious and stunning woman brings trouble.

But former Australian Airforce pilot Luke Fox isn’t the type to shirk away from a challenge. When ICE sends him in undercover to take down the most notorious drug cartel in Mexico, he’s not planning to encounter tempting and complex Mia. Further, Luke believes the woman to be part of the drug lord’s gang…until he uncovers the truth.

Intrigued by the cartel’s new pilot, she takes reckless risks.

Kidnapped when she was a child, Mia has lived her life in fear under the roof of a cold and heartless tyrant. Though she knows the punishment for her curiosity, she cannot help but seek to learn more about the new man who is so different from the others—and he’s the only one who’s not afraid to talk to her.

As forbidden romance blossoms, they face the most dangerous challenge of their lives.

Luke must complete his mission, but the stakes have just quadrupled. Shocked by the brutal truth, he refuses to end it without taking Mia with him. As the enemy closes in, all seems lost. Who saves whom in his fast-paced, heart-stopping struggle of good against evil?

Here is my review

5 stars – I listened to the previous 2 books in the ICE series in audio and they were both 5 stars across the board. This 3rd instalment is no different.
I was looking forward to read Luke’s story and he got his hands full with Mia. Joining their journey to freedom and finally to HEA is intense. His mission in Mexico is intense and it has a few nail-biting moments. Learning about Mia’s abduction and subsequent sale into slavery and what she has to do to survive is heart wrenching. She is smart and knowledgeable in many things but immature in others.
Loved seeing the other characters from the previous books making their appearance in this one too. Well done Ms. Jarecki.
I hope there will be more stories in the ICE series, I am looking forward to more adventures.

I really hope there will be more in the series. Ms. Jarecki? Pleeeeeze!

Awesome news from Tantalus!

Hello and welcome!

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were merry.

I had a relaxing week off and put quite a dent in my TBR pile, especially the audiobook one.

Now onto the awesome news from Tantalus!

I am having a great time listening to an audiobook in progress as it is finished chapter by chapter. The book is First Contact, book 1 in the Tantalus series by M.A. Abraham.

FCaudioCover

Twenty ships have left the gravitational field of the Earth with the intention of colonizing Mars. Each is independent of the other and set to become domed cities upon landing. The mission is simple: go forth to develop the new planet, make it an extension of our home. Well, it sounded simple.

No one expected life on Mars to be easy, they are pioneers and that is a type of life that comes with dangers. What they didn’t expect was for the settings of one of the ships to be off enough to miss their landing, to miss the very planet they were meant to settle.

Even more astounding was to find another planet within a three-week travel period that lies in the shadow of the red planet. It is where they will land, where their ship will unfold to become a domed city. Where life is dangerous in a hostile land and they find unexpected help. The indigenous winged people of the planet don’t live on the surface of the planet, they live in cities in the clouds, but they are willing to extend a welcoming hand to those who have come to their land, as well as teach them what they can to survive. Their relationship begins with three words.

“Welcome to Tantalus.”

I AM SO EXCITED and I can’t wait for you all to hear it when it releases soon, I do not have an exact date, but you can bet I will share it when the date is set.

The talented Brian Callanan is the one narrating it, he chatted with me back in October. If you missed it, you can find it here. It is such a pleasure working with Brian, he has an uncanny ability to capture the many characters’ temperaments and quirks and the progress is swift. I am hoping he will be narrating the whole series. I love his various voices, male and female, young or old, the colourful nuances, the way I can hear the emotions behind the words.

I will have a trailer for First Contact audiobook to share soon. Until then you can check out his voice on Audible or ACX.

Rising from the Ashes – NEW RELEASE

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited for this new release! CONGRATS M. A. Abraham!

RFTA-banner

Continuing from where the Elven Chronicles left off. We bring you the ONE EMPIRE SERIES.

The Drazon is dead, and the Demons have been eradicated from the Elven Empire. Now the Elves can begin anew, and this is exactly what they are about to do. Their lands are scarred by the war, their original Kingdoms fragmented and their people are in need of healing as much as the world around them. The boundary has been raised, to separate the Elven Empire from the rest of the world, and they settle down to work.

The new era starts with the Elven Kingdoms uniting as the One Empire, Life Mates are found, relationships cemented, and peace reigns. There is no better time to rebuild their world, and raise a family. First, the men who took advantage of Gabriel and Eden’s spell must convince their Life Mates that what they did was not such a bad thing. That could take a while, especially for any Male Elf who is bonded to a Light Elven Female.

Buy links.

 

My fave scenes in all the Elven books are the bonding scenes… Here is the one from “Rising from the Ashes” by M.A. Abraham.

“Séreméla, from the moment I saw you, I knew you were meant to be mine. You became the center of my world, the light of my soul. I reach for what my heart cannot help but yearn for and my heart cannot function without. Séreméla, I am yours.”

“Séreméla’s eyes met Åndorin’s, as he spoke, and she sought the golden thread she knew she would find, the one that would bind them forever more. It shone brightly, and the strength it revealed was astonishing. This was not something she could ignore, not that she wanted to. She held his gaze with hers, as she spoke.

“Even when we were battling the enemy, I could feel your presence, the love you felt in your heart surrounded me, and the strength of who you are held me close. I cannot deny what my soul needs anymore than my body can stop breathing the air it needs to survive. Åndorin, I am yours,” Séreméla declared.

“Séreméla, you who are the blood of my heart, and the light of my soul, I will always hold your words close within my memory, for you are mine,” Åndorin promised.

“Åndorin, forever you are mine,” Séreméla answered.

They then spoke the final words of bonding, “Together, we are one.” As they finished, they sealed their vows with a kiss.”

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Like the many Elfanatics out there, I was so happy the stories from the much loved Elven world were not over. After so many centuries of battle and struggles, the time for peace is here. But there is so much to do to restore the Empire and as in the past, the many kingdoms come together and work side by side to make sure it gets done.

Many of the characters we came to love are making their presence known, along with many new ones. There is laughter, there is heartache but there is also hope as many of the new Life Mate pairings make their way to where they can make their mark, like Séreméla and Åndorin who start a movement that spreads like wildfire and gets everybody mobilized and eager to help with what they can.

An exciting beginning into the new era of the Elven Empire. Looking forward to more.

 

I hope you give this new series a chance. I promise, you will not be sorry.

Dance of the Dragon Sorceress, book 3 in Tangere Tales

Hello and welcome!

If you are following my blog, you know I read books 1 and 2 in the Tangere Tales by Heather Rainier. I fell in love with that world. I just finished book 3, Dance of the Dragon Sorceress, released on December 1, 2017.

hr-sorceress-tt-full

Basile and Rainger are sworn to defend and foster the baby dragons of the Eastern Kingdom. While searching for the heir to the dragon king’s throne, they fall under the spell of a bewitching brunette. Desire takes a back seat to duty because they must find the baby dragon before it falls into the hands of the evil queen, Draconia.

Seeking shelter from a storm for herself and the odd little stray she picked up, Elaina takes refuge in the stronghold of the Knights of the Order of the Dragon. She’s discovered sound asleep with the tiny dragon king curled up beside her, and mayhem ensues when the prince, the huntsman, and the seven knights learn firsthand she’s not some damsel in distress.

When Draconia learns of the enchanting beauty has stolen the hearts of the men whom she desires for herself, she sets a plan into motion that endangers Basile and Rainger’s love for Elaina before it’s barely begun.

5 stars
I have to say this is my fave tale so far of the Tangere series. It is Snow White’s story, but with spice AND dragons. Ms. Rainier! You had me at dragons LOL
Just as the previous two tales in the series, this story takes us from the contemporary world of Elaina’s camping trip to the fantasy world of Tangere.

I laughed out loud at the names Elaina was coming up with for the little dragon she found and the expressions she confounded the men with. With her backpack full of stuff, no wonder they thought she was a sorceress, the lightsaber scene was hilarious 😀

The Dragon Knights replace the dwarves in this adaptation and them being named with colour names in French is a great touch. The Skittles crew indeed LOL
Selena is one mischievous Fae Princess and I have to laugh how the men are scared of her. I wonder if Sir Violet will capture her heart finally.

I am glad Elaina found Rainger and Basile and they get their HEA, but their journey is quite deadly. She was able to assist in defeating Draconia, now that one is an evil power-hungry woman! shudder

The ending was so happy, loved the reunion of the friends and the banter. Zayrgrud’s future Queen, Faerhyss will be a handful for sure, especially if the Dragon Nanny will be her trainer LOL

Star Keeper – NEW RELEASE!

Hello and welcome!

LH-banner01

Excited to be part of the release day celebrations for one of my fave authors, Kate Reedwood who joined with Chris Heinicke to create the Legacy Hunter series.

BOOK 1

LH-QK-ebookCover

Queen Killer, book 1 was released in July 2017, and is available in ebook and print.

Stardrives.
Powerful, beautiful, bio-­‐mimetic energy in its purest form. A benevolent gift meant to launch humanity into a new age of space travel. They were the hope for the future. The key to the next stage in human discovery. But every gift has its price.

Nearly a thousand years after Earth took its place in the network of galactic commerce, the planet is depleted of resources and on the edge of collapse. Can stardrive technology bring the Earth back to life? Adventurer Axel Ryan is betting his life that it can. But there aren’t any stardrives left to be found on Earth, and ships capable of interstellar travel are hard to come by. His only choice is to enlist the aid of mercenary pirates to steal one. With the stakes high, and the future of Earth on the line, does it matter he’ll have to betray the love of his life?

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer has always been Element Cruz’s motto. And it couldn’t be more true with Axel Ryan. Drugged, abandoned, and her ship stolen, she’s more than ready to let the price on his head kill him. Except Axel holds the key to saving humanity. And if there’s one thing Ellie can’t refuse, it’s the chance to win.

What the hell had he done? No ship was worth this.
     “Warning, hull breach imminent.”
     “Escape pod. Now!” he shouted. Built for two, the women would be protected by the automatic defense system on board, while the pod sped them to the safety of the nearby Terran colony on Europa.
     “Oh God,” Rose said, panic clear in her voice as she checked Ellie over. “I think it’s her leg.”
      “I’ll bring her. Just go!” Axel picked up Ellie, ignoring the way she winced and screamed as her left foot banged his thigh, and hurried in the direction of the escape pod.
      Smoke was seeping in around the edges of the main door, making the red light of the emergency system a hazy mist. The sound of stressed metal reverberated throughout the room. As did the resonant hum of blasters being fired.
     “This is all your fault, you bastard!” Rose screamed at him, speaking aloud what Axel already knew to be true. It was his fault. All of it. The betrayal. The hurt. All of it.
     The pod door slid open with the touch of Rose’s hand. Her expression sparked with hatred as she pressed herself into the upright harness of the cylindrical tube and reached for her daughter. Axel helped Ellie into the other tether as he counted the seconds in his mind, willing the main door to hold just a heartbeat longer. One, two, three—
     Boom!
     The stressed metal exploded, breaching the room.
     “Axel!” Ellie screamed. She reached for him, her green eyes wide.
     “Only room for two,” he said and hit the release button.
     The capsule door slammed shut, separating the two women from his view. Then it was gone, disappeared down the launch tube.
     Safe.
     Axel gasped for breath in the thinning atmosphere of the room and raised his hands into the air.
     If there was one thing in life he found impossible to mistake, it was the cold hard steel of a blaster, pressed to the back of his head.

BOOK 2

StarKeeper-cover

Star Keeper, the second book in the series, is released today.

Axel Ryan is running for his life. Pursued by bounty hunters with a price on his head, he should disappear into the stars to hide and continue his search for Stardrives. But his soulmate, Element Cruz, has resurfaced and after spending the last six months searching for her with no luck, finding her again is worth gambling his life. She’s putting her own in danger by infiltrating an illegal slave auction where the Star Keeper of Endaria is being sold; a woman with empathic abilities, worth more credits then Axel can legally gather. It should be an easy mission. Crash the auction, save his girl, and fly off into the galaxy to live happily ever after together. But the universe has another destiny in store for Axel, one he’ll need to embrace to save them all, or die trying.

Here is an excerpt…

LH-planetprimer-02

 “Ellie!” Axel screamed as he raced through the door on the left of the corridor he was in. Through a meter-­‐wide window, he saw the tired face of Element Cruz. Relief collided with panic and turned to rage. She was still alive, but for how long? And why the frell did she have a fist-­‐sized welt on her cheek? The mark was dark red and stark against her skin, swollen and painful.
     He ran up and touched the window, her face on the other side. “Who the frell hit you?” he yelled, not sure if Ellie could hear. When she stared at him blankly he shook his head and added, “I will get you out of there!” He could dole out justice to whoever had harmed her once he knew she was safe.
     She gestured at her comm where it hung useless and broken from the collar on her suit and put her hand up against the window too. She mouthed the words, “It’s a trap,” clearly enough for Axel to understand the lip movements. “Get out of here!”
     He glanced around the room he was in. Some kind of observation chamber, he guessed. But for what purpose, he had no idea. Shiloh had led a peculiar existence. The room itself was divided, a couch and table on this side with a glass partition separating him from the other where Ellie and Iris and Shiznit were held captive.
     Iris had escaped her own bindings and was working on undoing Shiznit’s restraints with her fingers. Ellie banged her fists against the glass. “Leave!” she screamed.
     Axel ignored her and tried the cell’s door, first with a tug on the handle, then with his blaster, but the laser fire bounced off the glass without doing any discernable damage.
     Axel turned back to Ellie, so close to him but separated by safety glass that would take more fire power than he could muster right now to break. She may as well be on the other side of the galaxy.
     But he refused to give up and let her and the others die. Darius wasn’t going to win.
     The charges. Where were they? A blinking light caught his eye by the edge of the cell window. Rectangular and about the size of his palm, the explosive charge had been attached to the wall. One of several, in fact, he realized.
     He moved to the charges and studied them. He was no expert, but the arrangement seemed simple enough. Square casing. Couple wires. Blinking red light, the flashes increasing in speed. A countdown in progress? Shit.
     The others banged on the window. Axel glanced at them but ignored their frantic expressions and pleas for him to leave. He needed to focus on diffusing the situation.
     “Who am I kidding, I’ve never done this shit,” he said out loud. He did know the red digital display was just that, a display, but that there was some type of timer inside that was counting down to zero. The nearest charge had been placed at his height, and he knew that the first thing he should do was try to pull one of the wires out to disrupt the circuit. But which one? Black or red? And if he picked wrong, would it instantly detonate and set off the others?
      Sweat poured from his brow like a slow dripping tap, and he quickly wiped it with the back of his hand.
      He could stand here and wait, or he could take a chance and act. The others were shrieking frantically, banging on the glass. The right wire would save them. They were dead for certain if he stood here letting time run out. Fifty-­‐fifty chance. Life or death? Red or black? Which future did fortune favor?
     He chose black.
      Pulling with all his strength, he broke the wire free of the charge with a snap. The blinking stopped and became a solid red light, glaring at him with its brightness. A high-­‐pitched whine filled the room.
     “Oh shit.” I’m so sorry, he thought. “Ellie! Get back!”

Dark Horizon, book 3 is scheduled for release on March 29, 2018. Further books in the series are pending.

My Chat with Michael

Hello and welcome!

Today my guest is somebody I met recently and oh boy did he leave an impression.

Please welcome Michael!

What is your full name?
Michael Zorn. Come to think of it, my parents never gave me a middle name. he chuckles I guess I was destined from the start to appreciate efficiency.

Do you have a nickname?
My younger brothers Eli and Nick have tried to give me certain nicknames over the years.  he clears his throat Most of them have started with the word, “ass.” You know, asshole, asswipe, that sort of thing.
What are brothers for, right? LOL

What is one word best describes you?
Focused. *grins* I like to give all my projects my, um, undivided attention.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Pretty much what I wear most days. Faded jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt and my favorite Timberland work boots. Does my tool belt count? My girlfriend Emily says it’s the sexiest thing in my wardrobe but I’m still trying to figure that one out.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Michael frowns I think Ms. Leo spent too much time talking about my muscles. Emily told me that’s the best part of the book. Personally, I think the author should have spent more time talking about our tile installation in Emily’s kitchen. Did you see the placement of the grout? Those lines were pristine. I would have dedicated a whole chapter to that grout.
I can barely hold my grin back I think Ms. Leo did it right, muscles are yum, grout not so much I wink

What makes you laugh out loud?
Two words: Property Brothers. I hate that show.

What is your favourite dessert?
Oh, man. Emily is known for her soups but she’s got a talent with sweets as well. She makes these Nanaimo bars that are so delicious my eyes roll back in my head just thinking of them. he has this dreamy smile… sigh One of these days, I might just ask her to wear that chocolate for me.

What is your favourite drink?
I’m a man of simple tastes. Give me a cold beer on a hot day and I’m happy.

What is your greatest fear?
A shadow crosses Michael’s face Since you read A Good Man, you know about the incident I was involved in last year. It was a bad moment in my life and it’s taken me a long time to deal with my feelings. Luckily, because of Emily, I can now. What happened that day … well, let’s just say my greatest fear would be something like that happening to Em. I don’t think I’d ever recover from that.

What is your favourite colour?
Michael’s eyebrow arches Eniko, do I look like the sort of man who has a favorite color?
I arch my eyebrow at him I have to pick one? Okay, green. Em’s eyes are green.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
And again, I ask, Eniko, do I look like the sort of man who wears anything to bed? winks
I had to ask, readers want to know this kind of stuff 😀

What is the perfect romantic date?
I’m not much of a fine dining kind of guy. The best day I ever had with Emily was a day she planned at the Toronto Islands. We went on the ferry boat, toured the islands on a tandem bike and ate burgers. It was an awesome day and it ended in the best possible way, with her in my bed.
Oh I haven’t been there in more than 20 years, I should plan a visit with my son next summer.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not telling. No, seriously, Eniko. Back up. Put that finger away! Do not tickle me under my arm! Do not. manly giggles as I tickle him Stop, woman. Please, you’re killing me. Oh, my God. Do you want to see a grown man cry?
OK OK I’ll stop, just don’t cry 😛

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Emily makes this one soup that is so delicious. It’s her Spicy Thai Soup. She served it to me when we were, um, just starting to flirt with each other. It smelled so good, full of lime and lemongrass. Every time I smell it now, I think of that night and how we almost kissed.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I know it might sound dumb but I think I fell a little bit in love with Em even before I met her. We had been trading emails about her appearance on Handymen. Her enthusiasm and warmth just made me feel so good and so happy. Don’t get me wrong. I love a curvy figure as much as the next guy but if there’s no substance behind it, I lose interest.

I know what it is since I already read the book, but can you elaborate more on Handymen for our readers?
Well, that’s the DIY TV show that I host with my two brothers on the Inspiration Network. We help families realize their home renovation dreams. Emily was one of our guests, her and her douchebag fiancé. Sorry… did I say that out loud? What I meant to say was … never mind. I meant “douchebag.”
You can say it, and yes he was… what an ass…

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Bashful smile I guess I’ve mentioned Emily a lot, huh? She’s awesome. I love her. We’re getting married, you know? She said, “yes.” I’m the luckiest man in the world.
I heard and congrats to both of you!

What is one word that best describes her?
Persistent. I love that about her. She never gave up on me, even when I pushed her away. Oh, and she has the best smile. It lights up a room.  he laughs I guess that’s way more than one word, huh?

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
You bet! My book, A Good Man, is book 1 of the Handymen series. From what I understand, Ms. Rosanna Leo has been snooping around my brother Eli lately. I hear she has some adventures in store for him. Oh, and you know we can’t leave our youngest brother Nick out of the fun. I can’t wait to see him get what’s coming to him! And I hear there might even be a surprise hero in this series. I guess you’ll all just have to read and follow Ms. Leo for details! I won’t give her secrets away … not even if you tickle me.
No more tickling, crying men are just not something I can handle LOL I am looking forward to reading their stories too and I hope we get news on you two also.

Thank you Michael for taking the time to chat with me, sending hugs to Em!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for joining us today and I hope you enjoyed the chat.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

As Michael mentioned, he hails from A Good Man, book 1 of Handymen series by one of my fave authors, Rosanna Leo.

Today is release day! Congrats Ms. Leo!!!

Not only is Michael a star on a successful home improvement show, he’s also seen as a local hero. But no one knows about the demons he carries inside him ever since the day he risked his life to save others. All the accolades and honors only make the memories stronger and the pain unbearable. He would do anything to be able to forget, to put his past behind him and move on. Michael takes on a new home improvement project, convinced it’s the perfect distraction. Little did he know that Emily, the woman who’s supposed to be nothing more than a client, would turn out to be a huge distraction…and engaged. While Emily battles with her own personal problems, Michael is determined to keep his distance. The last thing he needs is woman trouble. But when it becomes clear that the attraction is mutual, he realizes staying away from her is not an option. Now Michael needs to decide if he’s willing to risk exposing his weakness, and his heart…by giving in to temptation.

Here is a taste… and you will see why it was so easy to fall in love with him 😉

“Come with me. I want to show you something.”
“Sounds mysterious.”
“I will admit I was keeping this a secret, but I’ve made an executive decision to break with Handymen tradition.”
“What will Lacey think?”
“Let’s not go there.” He brought her upstairs, to the room that used to be the master bedroom, the one where several crew members stowed their belongings most days. Michael opened the door. At the far end of the empty room sat a large object, covered in a long tarp. “I’ve been working on something for you.”
“You mean other than renovating my house?”
He grinned. “Remember those old family photos Lacey borrowed from you?”
“Yeah. She said they wanted to include a montage of old pictures in the show introduction.”
“That might have been a slight fabrication. I just needed a way to get some photos from you. Anyway, I was saving this for the big reveal, but I think I want to show you now.” He grabbed the edge of the tarp and pulled, revealing the object hidden beneath it.

It was an old wooden ladder, one he’d found months ago at a salvage yard. He’d decided to repurpose it, turning it into a set of frames for the old photos they’d borrowed. Faces now smiled out from the six gaps between the rungs. Nonna Olivia hugging two blond children, Emily and her brother. Nonna Olivia and her husband on their wedding day. Six photos in total, all part of the heritage Emily so treasured. He hoped she’d like the rustic look of the ladder. Rather than sanding and painting it, he’d left it rough and worn, so that it looked as if it might have been sitting in Nonna Olivia’s toolshed, just waiting to be used. All Michael had done was affix the appropriate hooks and backings and had blown all the photos up to sizes that would fit the spaces.
Emily gazed upon her grandmother’s face. Her chest heaved. She blinked once, then twice. All at once, big, fat tears began to roll down her cheeks. “Michael, it’s…”
“I hope you don’t mind I used the photos. I thought it might be nice for you to have mementos of your grandmother in the finished store.”
“Oh.” Her hand covered her mouth but it shook so much she was unsuccessful at covering her open mouth.
“I hope you like it. You’ve had a shitty week and I thought you could use a pick-me-up. I was supposed to keep quiet about it, so maybe you could keep it under your hat until—”
Emily threw herself at him and wrapped her arms around his torso, cutting off his words and his breath. Only when he hugged her back did he realize how hard she was quivering.
She wasn’t just crying about the old photos.
“It’s okay, Em. Let it out, sweetheart.”
The collar of his shirt grew wet but he didn’t care. Wardrobe had tons of shirts. Besides, she felt good in his arms, all soft and warm. He rubbed her shoulders and the back of her waist, exploring and familiarizing himself with her luscious body. He breathed, drinking in her scent. His nasal cavities had never known such bliss. It was like that first clear breath after a long period of congestion. His fingers were pretty happy too, enjoying the give of her womanly body. It was all he could do not to slide them down, cup her sweet ass, and pull her up against him.
Just not while she was crying over another man.
She lingered in his arms and he did nothing to push her away. In fact, it surprised him how badly he wanted to keep her there, so much so that when Emily finally extricated herself, he wanted to pull her back into his embrace. Instead, he wiped her cheeks of the remaining tears.
“The makeup ladies are going to kill me for making you cry.”
It might have been his imagination, but her tears made her eyes appear even greener. In fact, her entire face seemed a riot of tempting color. Each shade called to him. The crushed roses in her cheeks. Her strawberry lips, so plump and moist. Even the doeskin brown of her freckles fascinated him to no end. He wanted to count them, to kiss and mark them all.
Kissing her made a whole lot of sense right now. Kissing her senseless seemed even better.

Emily’s eyes widened. Her lips parted in invitation. Michael paused, knowing it was wrong, even though every raised hair on his arms told him it was right.
As he debated with himself for a split second, she brushed her lips against his. It was quick and soft, hunger masquerading as something platonic. Even though a spectator might have called it a friendly kiss, he knew the truth. As brief as it may have been, he felt her yield to him, even if just a little.
From the startled look in her eye, Emily knew it too.
She took a step back. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that.”
“You’re right. I should have been the one to do it.” Michael licked his lips. “Your lips really do taste like strawberries.”
“Michael, I can’t.”
“I think you just did.”
“You know what I mean.” She waved her hand between their two torsos. “This. I can’t do this.”
“What? Point at my chest?”
“You’re teasing me.”
“Maybe a little. Listen, Em, I understand. As unexpected as that kiss was, as much as I want to taste your lips again, I know it’s too soon.”
“It’s too much, too soon.”
He reached for her hand. “I get it. It’s okay.”
“Thank you.”
“But that doesn’t mean I won’t be spending all my waking hours waiting for the moment I can make it happen again.”
“Michael.”
“Don’t worry. I’d never force the matter. Besides, I enjoyed having you thrust yourself at me.”
“Are you ever going to let me live it down?”
“Not in this century, sweetheart.”

A Good Man Kissing her teaser (1)

My review:
5-stars
Heartfelt and realistic, this story is compelling in many ways. It deals with heartbreak, loss, consequences to actions in life, but most of all… HOPE… that it will be ok and also LOVE… a powerful force that can conquer and heal.
It is hard not to fall in love with Michael, strong yet vulnerable, humble and loyal, protective to the core. No wonder Emily falls for him, and she is a strong woman, loyal, warm. Ms. Leo made a perfect match, he helps heal her broken heart, she helps heal his spirit.
I am looking forward to the next stories, especially Eli’s, who caught my attention in this book.

Midnight of the Fae, book 2 in Tangere Tales

Hello and welcome!

Today I would like to give you my impressions of the book I just finished today, an adult twist on my fave fairy tale from one of my fave authors, Heather Rainier.

hr-midnightfae-tt

After discovering an odd little canine while exploring a cave, Caresse stumbles into a world where fae magic and shape shifters are commonplace. She even has her very own distractingly handsome faery bodyguard.

On notice that the queen will pick a bride for him if he won’t cooperate with her plans to become a grandmother, Prince Sebastien wants nothing to do with any of the debutantes his mother keeps pushing at him.

Sebastien’s fae cousin Leandre has a bombshell of a secret. Her name is Caresse, he’s her faery bodyguard, and he loves her even though she’s meant for Sebastien.

Caresse is unaware that she hasn’t just stumbled into the mystical Southern Kingdom of Tangere, she’s actually returned home.

A powerful bond develops between the three of them as she comes into her own unique powers, jeopardizing the plans of an old, malevolent enemy.

MidnightFae-Heather-banner

5 stars

Cinderella is my fave fairy tale I grew up with and this version is my fave so far.
Yes, it is an adult version, even better. I devoured it in one morning and it left me with a feel-good satisfied mood. Ms. Rainier sure knows how to twist a tale and make it fun AND sexy.
Had quite a few giggles at the acronyms both Caresse and Leandre came up for him and her nickname for one of his Tangere forms, Doop-Doop, cracked me up.
Happy that Caresse returned home and found her HEA she deserved and not with one, but two princes. Loved Leandre’s playful manner which complemented Sebastian’s more reserved intense nature.
I liked that the step sisters in this versions were not as bad as in the original fairytale, but the step mother sure was evil. Again Selena makes quite an appearance and she is mischievous in a good way, but dangerous when crossed.
Now I can’t wait for the next story.

Available now at Bookstrand.

Personal Disaster Teaser

EXCERPT

Poppy stiffens on the passenger seat beside me, and despite my best efforts to glare straight ahead, I see her out of the corner of my eye. I see her glance down at her recorder, and turn it off. I see her jaw tighten, then relax, and I see her sigh and turn to look out the window.

I see her cross her legs, flashing me another few inches of soft thigh.

Damn it. Now my jaw is tight, too.

That’s not to say I don’t like it. I do, but it’s a performance.

A trick.

If a woman is going to slide her skirt up her thighs for me, it’s gotta be because she wants me to chase the hem with my tongue. Because she wants to get lost for a few hours, and part company with a mutually fond memory.

Not because she thinks I can be distracted by my dick.

She taps her fingers on her knee, then sighs and lifts her hand to her mouth. Her lips part, pink and shiny, and she sinks her perfect white teeth into the fleshy pad of her thumb.

This was a mistake. I can’t drag her around the park with me. Another few hours of this antagonism and who the hell knows what will happen?

Maybe you can chase her through the forest and convince her to let you peek up her skirt.

Not happening.

I slam on the brakes and jerk the truck off the path. She scrambles to hang on to her recorder, her skirt, her plan of seduction.

I don’t care. I point to her door. “Get out.”

“Excuse me?” She spins around, looking back up the road.

Yeah, we’re a few miles from where she left her car.

Not my problem.

“Get. Out.”

“You get out,” she says hotly. 

Fine.

I leap out the driver’s side and stalk around to her door.

More thigh greets me as she holds up her hand—clearly, she’s figured out I’m serious, and she doesn’t want me to touch her.

Fine by me. I don’t want to touch her either. Not much, anyway. Definitely not in anger.

I actually want to touch her way too much for a stranger who’s poking around my life.

I step back and cross my arms over my chest. “What are you playing at?”

She slithers to the ground and straightens her dress. “Nothing.”

“With your little display in the truck.”

“What display?”

“Letting your skirt ride up. Biting your thumb. Turning off the recorder.”

Her eyes go wide as I list what she did. She stares at me, stock-still, then gasps again and shoves her hands hard against my chest. “You… you… you…”

I step back, and she shoves me again.

“You… beast!” She laughs, and shakes her head, but when her gaze collides with mine, there’s no humor there. Just angry, pissed-off woman. “Okay, let’s start at the top. I’m wearing a skirt. Yes. I have legs, that’s a fun fact, too. And you saw part of them. Whoop-di-fucking-doo, Ranger Boy. Second, if I was biting my thumb, it was to keep from criticizing your reckless fucking driving. And finally, I turned off my recorder because this interview is a waste of my fucking time. And if you think for a hot second that I might use my feminine wiles to get a story out of you, you’re a fucking asshole who deserves to be hunted down by paparazzi. I’ll make sure that happens just as soon as I get off this fucking godforsaken mountain.”

“You’re going to give up, just like that?” I move forward again, crowding into her personal space. “Lose your story?”

“There’s no story here,” she spits, her jaw set and her eyes glittering. “Not one worth writing.”

“Because I barked at you?”

“Because you leered at me.”

I had done that. Twice. Maybe three times. And I’d done it mostly to scare her away, but also a little bit because she itched at me. That itch now flares up, hot and red and annoyingly principled. “I was trying to scare you off.”

She laughs again without humor. “It worked, you pervert. How the fuck am I supposed to get back to my car now? Because I’m sure as hell not getting back in your truck.”
