From the Depths by Author Kate Bonham

Carys, the favorite daughter of the King of Atlantia, has always wanted something greater for herself than to marry young and have more mer-children. She wants to be human—to marry the young sailor she’s seen by the docks. When she’s given the opportunity to become human, she jumps at it, hoping to meet her dream man.

Only problem is—humans are not what she has thought all her life. They are greedy, money-hungry monsters. What if the man she’s secretly hoping for, is the one she was destined to marry? What if it’s not always greener on the other side?

And I don’t even know his name.

Until they tell me.

Book Review: ‘Lesbian Poker Night’ by Ava Sterling

Lesbian Poker Night

Title: Lesbian Poker Night

Published: 11th September 2015

Publisher: Red Lace Publishing

Author: Ava Sterling

Twitter: @ava_sterling

Synopsis:

Poker, chicken wings, and bragging rights…what could be better than that? Add a lesbian rendezvous and you have your answer.

Mina and Tiffany have had their eye on Chloe for some time. She is blonde and beautiful–who wouldn’t? Promising to introduce her to their mutual friend Alex, they bring her to the apartment for a poker night.

What begins as a clean game of poker quickly turns into strip poker, and with every article of clothing removed comes a less inhibited Chloe. Mina takes things a step further, hoping Chloe will follow along, but in this game of high stakes, all three of them could turn out to be a winner.

(This explicit story is intended for adult readers only)

Review:

Chloe has been down on her luck in the man department for a while now, something that Mina and Tiffany don’t need to worry about. So when her friends suggest a poker night to introduce her to Alex a friend of theirs she jumps at the idea. When she gets there though she’s a bit disappointed to find out that he can’t make it, though as a reader you have a sneaky suspicion that maybe he wasn’t really invited. This is where the fun starts to begin though with her mind slowly being changed with what she might really want.

The story didn’t seem rushed and you got a good feel for the characters personalities right away – the shy one, out going one and the bold one that takes risks. It’s almost like as a reader you happened to stubble upon the story somewhere in the middle of when their friendship started and from where it will more than likely be going after their poker night.

The idea of a poker night was a fun idea, as a reader you could see where Mina was going to go with this very early on, not that Tiffany minded. I liked that, even though they had high hopes for how they wanted the night to go, they didn’t rush into making a move with Chloe. I feel that if they had gone too quickly then she would have been startled off and felt weird about what they wanted to do. Because you could see the evening unfolding you could see how Chloe was starting to relax and come out of herself a bit more, and be turned on by what was happening around her – the others stripping down to just their thongs helped!

The evening itself obviously takes a different turn of events than what Chloe had expected but she seems to be a quick leaner, something Mina appreciates a lot! They all seem to have a fun night and at the end you get a feel that this is going to be the first of many fun poker nights, or just naked nights, these women are going to have in the future.

Cover Reveal: ‘Black Swan Affair’ by KL Kreig

 

Title: Black Swan Affair
Author: K.L. Kreig
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 17, 2016

 

Blurb

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into a woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.

He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.

I married his brother, Kael.

Now we’re one big happy fucking family.

*NO CHEATING STANDALONE*

 

 

Author Bio

I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
