Title: Degrade
Series: Flawed
Author: T.L. Smith
 Release Date: August 31, 2015


One rule, only one rule women need to follow when they’re with me.

Don’t ask for more.

This rule is in place for a reason, you won’t get more of what’s not there to give.


He is striking, and he’s all man. He is also the devil, or so I believe him to be. I gave him my heart, not realizing I was doing so. He likes to break me down, so I’m a shell of the person I once was. He’s chipping away at me, bit by bit. Though I’m not as weak as he thinks, and when I can’t handle it anymore, I will come back swinging.

I’m an idiot, I know this. I just can’t help myself. When it comes to him, I do as he says, do as he pleases. Even if it’s against everything, I believe in. He has a hold on me, which no other person has ever held. I don’t believe he loves me, but I love him. So that has to count for something? Right? My love is big enough. I believe it can hold onto both of us and wrap us up in a vice grip. See, I did tell you, I’m an idiot.

Blog Tour and Review: ‘He’s So Fine’ by Marie Mason


Title: He’s So Fine
Author: Marie Mason

Cage knew he was bad. Bad to the bone. A cheesy description, but one that fit the underground fighter perfectly. He loved to fight, he loved to f***. Despite his reputation, he tried to stay away from trouble. He usually succeeded. Until the day, trouble found him in the form of a curvy stepsister.

Abigail Snow was a good girl. Straight A student, attending college on a scholarship and… a virgin. When her stepbrother is invited to the Hamptons for a true family vacation, Abby knew she was in for a summer of heartache. He was big and strong with a cocky attitude… he was so fine.

But could he ever be hers?

WOW on so many levels. I have never read anything by Marie Mason but will definitely check out more by her now – especially as I have found out she writes paranormal shifter romances! The cover alone will make you want to read this one, I mean just look at that six-pack he is ripped!

Well what can I say about Cage – he is a cocky, self-assured man who loves to fight and f**k, and I completely loved him. He was so bold with saying it like it is in the beginning that you can’t help but be intrigued by him and his back-story to see how he has got to where he is. Cage has been on his own for as long as he can remember after his deadbeat mum died and then never knowing who his father was he bounced around foster homes until he had enough of his foster fathers beatings. He survived in the world using the talents he had available to him – being able to fight and f**k and being good at both of them. He is now on his way to being an MMA fighter at the age of 25 when he gets some unexpected news – his father has found him and wants him to spend the summer with him and his family at the Hampton’s. His coach talks him into going, he thinks he is just going to say hi, find out what happened in his past and leave. What he doesn’t expect is to take one look at the knockout that opens the door and want to stay for a whole new reason.

Abby is spending the summer in the Hampton’s with her family before heading back to college. Somewhere to relax and regroup before heading home and maybe somewhere she can find someone who can take her v-card. What she doesn’t expect when opening the door to her summer home to play tennis with her ‘Hampton friends’ is the sexiest man alive. She all but drools in his presence and only comes up straight when she realises who he is – her new step-brother.

Cage can’t believe his luck to have this beauty fall into his lap and after a horrifying moment thinking that he just got hard about who he thinks could be his half sister she says the magic word ‘step’. Now that is a very important word between the two of them as there is no blood relation – it’s just that his dad has married her mum. Now he knows its all good there is nothing that will stop him from going for her, as no one else has ever made him stand still and take notice for more than a few moments before. He just has to get her on side and well it is something he is very good at.

As soon as he figures out that she is still a virgin he comes up with the idea to help her out, train her in a way so she knows what is doing when she leaves at the end of the summer. He knows she is a good girl but as he keeps saying they are the ones who like the bad boys the most. When they start their training the words ‘scorching hot’ almost don’t cover it – they are completely on fire for each other. It soon becomes clear though that what they have started could be something a whole lot more than just a summer fling and if they aren’t careful then there could be some broken hearts at the end of it.

Blog Tour and Review: ‘Rose – Wildflowers of Montana’ by Vanessa Vale


Title: ROSE, (Wildflowers Of Montana)
Author: Vanessa Vale

Rose Lenox has grown up to be more comfortable on the back of a horse than wearing ribbons and bows like her seven adopted sisters. For years working the land was enough, but lately Rose finds herself wishing for something different. She wants her own ranch and freedom from her overwhelming and unorthodox family. Rose is determined to strike out on her own and forge her own path.

Lenox neighbor, Chance Goodman, has watched Rose grow from a spitfire of a girl to a beautiful and fiery woman. For years he’s waited patiently and watched her struggle to find her place in the world. When she leaves the Lenox ranch alone, determined to abandon her former life and to say good-bye to him, he knows the time has come to claim her. Letting her walk away isn’t an option. Chance knows exactly what she needs…and he’s going to give it to her.

Follow the eight Lenox sisters through this historical erotic series that’s as big and bold as the Montana Sky. The Wildflowers of Montana begins with Rose and her hot, Alpha cowboy.


Well who wouldn’t fall for a cowboy! Sexy historical erotic romance story, this book has it all.

Rose has always felt a bit out of sorts with her adopted sisters, being more feisty and boisterous than placid. They are more interested in bows and ribbons and what the latest gossip is, whereas she would prefer to spend all her time out running the Lenox ranch. The only problem is that even this is starting to feel like a chore. She feels like she needs to move on to something new and when she suggests this to her neighbour and friend Chance Goodman she doesn’t get the answer she was hoping for. Instead of maybe saying that he doesn’t want her to go anywhere or that he wants her for himself (which she has been wanting for a very long time) he simply says she doesn’t belong there any more. This leads Rose to make a rather rash decision that causes her all sorts of problems.

Chance has been binding his time for when Rose would come of age to marry and even then he waited a bit longer. He has always been able to see right through her façade that she holds up for everyone else to see. So when he sees her banging the hell out of a nail into a post he knows she is frustrated and needs to talk. When she says that she feels like she needs to go he knows this is the perfect time to make his declaration, only problem is she runs away before he gets the chance. When he does catch up to her she is caught in a rather comprising position as a man is trying to get her up to a room in the saloon. Only Rose could get herself in this situation so fast, so Chance sees his moment to get her where he wants her, with him for good. He has held out for long enough and now he wants to claim her as his in every way possible.

Rose can’t believe her luck when Chance says he wants to marry her and more to the point that he wants her to help with the running of his ranch. When he says: “You’re mine, Rose. Always have been.” she actually feels like the world is spinning. All her dreams seem to have come true, except that she isn’t quite getting the complete freedom she thought she was and Chance seems to be picky about what she can and can’t do with the running of the ranch, going on a cattle drive being one of them. She needs to learn to let go and trust that he will lead her in the right direction. He will protect her from everything, even herself.

You can feel the tension building between them and know that when they come together it is going to be explosive and tantalizing good. There is a small amount of BDSM in this book but it is more about the pleasure and trust that grows between Rose and Chance that makes the story so great. Their relationship is all about the journey they go on, physically and figuratively, and even though it was a short story you do feel the depth of their feelings for one another. What a great start to the series, I can’t wait to see what all the other sisters get up to.

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Erotic Western and Historical Erotica

Who doesn’t love the romance of the old West? Vanessa Vale takes the sensual appeal of rugged cowboys a step further with her bestselling books set in the Montana Territory. They are much more than just sexy historical westerns. By introducing sexual taboos into this otherwise traditional romantic setting, Vanessa has won the loyalty of a fan base that never knows quite what to expect with each new series.
“Montana Maidens” was the first to push the envelope with strong BDSM themes. “Montana Men” followed suit with softer themes but lots of deliciously graphic sex. “The Bridgewater Series” showcases ménage relationships because sometimes one hot cowboy isn’t enough. No-holds-barred, graphic descriptions, strong storytelling, engaging characters and breathtaking landscapes all combine to make very naughty reads.
And as a resident of Wild Wild West, Vanessa Vale finds plenty of inspiration for her work, for who doesn’t love a handsome cowboy?

Cover Reveal: ‘Splinters’ by M. R. Field

Title: Splinters
Series: Running on Empty #2
Author: M.R. Field
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le
 Release Date: September 28, 2015


I’ve spent my younger years acting, safe in a world of make-believe. I learnt to transform into roles to hold onto a sense of harmony in my life.Years later, still in that moment, I am another face. Another mask. I am not me—the forgotten daughter, the quiet friend, the unrequited love.

Until the pretending becomes meaningless.

And my life hardens again.

I’m tired of acting for my friends when my parents ignore me. I’m tired of acting for myself when I want the world to stop being so hard. I’m tired of holding back from the only man I’ve ever loved.

Even though being drawn to him petrifies me above all else.

When I act to him, he sees right through me.

Each and every time.



She has haunted my dreams for years. The girl I teased to watch her blush. The girl I watched in quiet agony. The girl I had a chance with, one I ruined when I pushed her away.

Now, after all these years, she’s returning to work for me. A ruse to make her mine.

I will show her that she deserves to be cherished, and loved. I’ll bring back that goddess who took my breath away when I was twenty.

You only live once. Side by side, I only want this final lifetime spent with her.

Available Now



Without turning, I know it’s Robbie standing there. I hear a muttered “fuck” as he clears his throat. That familiar wave that I’ve felt all this time returns. No matter where he is, I sense him. My body feels in tune with his, like a well-loved instrument. I want to be strummed, my pulse to rise while everything else fades away.

“It’s okay,” I assure him, my voice deep with desire, “you can come in.”

I don’t risk turning around just yet. I know those eyes will loosen the grip I have at my side, and the fingers will release my costume until it flutters to the ground.

“Ten minutes to show time, Hazel.” His voice breaks. A breath flutters out of my throat.

In the corner of my eye, I see him move closer until he is standing behind me. My grip tightens on the fabric as I feel his warm breath against my neck. Goosebumps tease along my skin and I can’t help it. I have to look at him. My eyes turn and stare into the molten depths of the eyes of the most beautiful man I have ever known. Without a word, his fingers reach out to my hips and begin to slowly zip up the corset. As the zip drags up my side, his warm fingers tease my skin until soft pants escape my lips. I swallow hard. I run the tip of my tongue along the inside of my lip, not caring that I’ve probably coated it in lipstick.

He finishes zipping me up and runs his fingertips along the feathered tulle that peaks out at the top from under the seam of the corset. He hisses as the heat from my body rushes to the surface, giving my skin a pink glow.

He gently turns me to face him and I watch nervously as his eyes trail up and down my body.

“You are magnificent.” He breathes, his voice only marginally returning.

“Th … thank you for the flowers,” I stammer, too turned on to function. A slow smile warms his face as he leans forward to leave a gentle kiss behind my left ear. “Anytime,” he whispers in my ear.
