Ash Taylor lives life without making deep connections with anything other than his brothers and his bass. His past has jaded him to love and makes him fear getting too close. Then Michelle walks into his life. Every night, she invades his dreams and stars in his fantasies. She makes him question himself and his ways. However, he is sure she could never date someone like him. So much so, that he convinces himself that she is married.
Michelle Reynolds has been jilted so badly, that she doesn’t want to date again. Her friend Beth tries to encourage her, but all of her relationships end badly or don’t last. She is sick of disappointment. When Ash comes into her life, she feels an immediate spark. He makes her feel special without effort. His big heart and deep voice mesmerize her. As soon as she finds out he is a rock star, her hopes are crushed. In her eyes, it could never work because musicians are not faithful, and she is not good enough for him.
Can these two polar opposites find a way to make a relationship work? Will all that dating a rock star entails break them or bring them closer? Find out in the first book of the Velocity series.

Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough. After her father turned her on to Queen, there was no going back. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Playing guitar became a pastime, which didn’t turn into a career… until she started to pen her fantasies and publish them.
Originally from Brooklyn, New York City, she grew up with access to clubs like L’Amour and CBGBs, hung out in Greenwich Village, as well as had plenty of friends in bands. No wonder rockers stayed on her mind. Bringing her ideas to life was a long time coming.
She is now living near Tampa, FL with 3 kids and 2 grandkids, as a single mom. Her family supports her writing even when it seems to take up more time than they feel is necessary. Can’t stop the muse, ya know!
Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.

New Adult Romance

Blurb

Do you choose your dream job—or the guy you’ve always wanted?

Three years ago Hannah met a sexy surfer while on vacation in Westport, WA.  After a whirlwind summer romance, he ghosts. She’s tried to move on, but no other guy has ever measured up.  And now she comes face to face with him on the first day of her new internship.  To make matters worse, he’s one of her managers, and he has no idea who she is.

Matt’s tired of being the third wheel around his friends, especially when he was the only one who ever wanted a girlfriend. And then Hannah Glover shows back up in his life—the girl who simultaneously made him want a relationship and ruined him for anyone else without him even realizing it.  He wants her now more than ever, but she doesn’t trust him after the way he ended things before.  Which should be fine since he’s her manager at his first job out of college, and their company has a strict no fraternization policy.  But Matt just can’t seem to help himself where she’s concerned.  And she won’t be an intern forever, right?

Will he be able to convince Hannah to give them another shot?  Or will their past and their present conspire to keep them apart?

Excerpt

Hannah held Matt’s gaze for what felt like an eternity, or maybe just a second. He stepped back from the table. She looked down at the empty glass in her hands, then out over the moving crowd, anywhere but at the space he’d occupied. A pang of disappointment reverberated below her ribs, fighting with the music for space in her body.

She took a deep breath, lifting her head. It shouldn’t matter. She came here with Elena and now wanted to hang out with Evan. He was funny, attractive, and interested. She shouldn’t feel disappointed that Matt was leaving and not looking at her anymore.

“I wouldn’t have expected to bump into you in a place like this.” Hannah drew in a deep breath at the low voice in her ear before she turned, her nose almost bumping into the center of Matt’s chest.

She raised her eyes, looking into his face. His expression gave nothing away. He’d gotten better at that face since she’d known him last. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

He tilted his head, examining her face. “From the way you dress in the office you look all prim and proper.” A smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. “Or do you have an inner naughty librarian thing going on?”

Hannah’s nostrils flared, and she didn’t know how to respond. She narrowed her eyes.  “Maybe I do. And I’m not sure seeing me at work a few times gives you enough information to judge my character.”

He opened his mouth and closed it again, shaking his head a little, the playful smirk now gone. “You’re right. Seeing you a few times wouldn’t give me that kind of information.” He leaned in closer. “But my window overlooks the front doors. I’ve seen you every day.”

The low rumble of his voice sent shivers down Hannah’s spine, but she didn’t want to let him know that he affected her. Still. After all this time his presence and his voice in her ear had arousal zinging down her spine and wetness soaking her thong. Instead she gave him a cheeky grin. “Stalking me now? That seems inappropriate for an HR manager.”

He sucked in a breath in response, his eyes going wide. “No. What? I’m not—”

Hannah laughed, both at his stammering response and that her flippant comment had reduced him to this. When she’d known him before, he’d been smooth and unflappable. The only time she’d been able to get him flustered or losing control was in the bedroom. Or the back of the car, or covered by a blanket under the stars on the beach, or … Yeah, she needed to stop thinking about that. She laid a hand on his arm, the memories making her feel closer to him than she should. “I’m kidding, Matt.”

His eyes zeroed in on where she touched him. She realized what she was doing and jerked her hand away. A look passed over his face, almost like disappointment, but then he put his neutral mask back in place.

Book Review: ‘Vampire Forgotten’ by Rachel Carrington

vampire-forgotten

Title: Vampire Forgotten (Vampires Destined Book 2)

Published: 29th May 2012

Author: Rachel Carrington

Facebook: www.facebook.com/AuthorRachelCarrington

Twitter: @rcarrington2004

Synopsis:

Vampires Destined Series

Three vampires. Separate destinies. All desiring a woman to love them for who they are not what they are.

ALL TITLES ARE STANDALONE AND DO NOT NEED TO BE READ IN ANY ORDER.

Vampire Forgotten
Book II

Forgotten in the mountains of Romania. Forced to live a life he didn’t choose. Suffering the daily pain of loneliness. Spending an eternity without the touch of a woman’s hand.

Though damned as a vampire, Rhad Valentine has been given what some might call the gift of psychic sight. He sees it as a constant reminder of real life going on without him—a life he cannot live.

Mischa Bonovich is on a desperate mission to find her missing sister, Rianna. Led to the mountains of her homeland by the faint call of Rianna’s voice, Mischa needs Rhad’s gift and his strength.

Wild hunger, both foreign and welcome, drives Rhad to his knees. He’d never held a woman so soft. Kissed one so responsive. And in spite of his inner protests, he’ll do anything to help her. Anything to feel just one more touch of her hand.

In the dark forests of Romania, Rhad’s desire won’t be quenched until he tastes what only Mischa can offer, but first, he must save her from a man who has nothing to lose. A man who holds a deadly secret that could tear Mischa from Rhad’s arms before love can happen.

Review:

I found this one had much more depth to the story and its characters. It draws you into the world created a bit more than the first one in series. Even though it is part of a trilogy its not the same characters from the first so can be read as a standalone. More enjoyable than the first one I felt though.

Rhad Valentine is pleasantly surprised by the gift left on his doorstep – a half naked female gift that is. Only problem is that she is unconscious and from the looks of it almost frozen to death. His second thought is to get her inside and warmed up, his first being that he hasn’t seen someone so beautiful in quite some time. He is intrigued more than anything so finds himself in a waiting game to find out why she came to his door.

Mischa wakes naked in a strange bed with no recollection of how she got there. To say she is concerned would be putting it mildly. More so when a man comes into the room and none other than the one she had come to see, Rhad. He was the last person her sister Rianna spoke about before she went missing so she is determined to get answers out of him. Well that and for him to explain how she got there. Seems neither has a clue on that one but us readers get a heads up from two friendly ghosts (one being a powerful shaman) as they were the ones that brought them together for a reason. Rhad is the only one who can help Mischa and its not just to help find her sister but to help keep her safe from the danger lurking.

Danger in the form of Hamrick, a man with nothing to lose so is willing to do whatever it takes to get to the shaman. He knows he is the only one who can save him but little does he know that the fates have other ideas in place for all of them.

The chemistry between Rhad and Mischa is subtle to begin with. She knows what he is – a vampire – but still finds herself drawn to him. Even in the midst of chaos around them from looking for her sister, Rhad’s haunted past bringing nightmares front and centre and the danger that follows them they still manage to connect on a deeper level. Rhad is different from other vampires, something he tries to explain to Mischa whether she willing to listen and accept or not. She can be hurtful with how she treats him at times but from how she makes it up to him I get a feeling that he won’t hold grudge for long.

Seems the ghosts are watching fate play out the course that was foreseen for Rhad and Mischa’s many years before. They are connected on more than a physical level but to their souls. They just have to be willing to let the other one in and really see them for it to work. Well that and try to outsmart a killer on their tracks.

Book Review: ‘Vampire Cursed’ by Rachel Carrington

vampire-cursed

Title: Vampire Cursed (Vampire Destined Book 1)

Published: 3rd May 2012

Synopsis:

Vampires Destined Series

Three vampires. Separate destinies. All desiring a woman to love them for who they are not what they are.

ALL TITLES ARE STANDALONE AND DO NOT NEED TO BE READ IN ANY ORDER.

Vampire Cursed
Book I

Cursed to live alone. Existing as cold, soulless vampire. His life is no longer his own.

Nathaniel, Duke of Lehr, has been waiting for someone to love, a woman to break the witch’s curse that holds him captive within the walls of his own home. For only unfettered, unconditional love will sever the ties binding him to a reality he abhors.

Abby’s been drawn to Castle Lehr for a long time. She wants an interview with the elusive owner, a chance for a big break in journalism. But the story isn’t one she can write about in the newspaper.

One moment, one connection, is all it takes for Nathaniel to realize his heart will be forever bound to Abby’s, but could she ever trust a vampire much less love one?

Review:

Goes down as another off my 2016 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – a book with a castle in it. Short and sweet but over far too quickly when the story had only just gotten started. I would have liked the story to be developed more.

Abigail thinks her big break has come when she gets to write a piece about an old castle in England and its elusive owner. From the moment she draws near to the door she is filled with longing to go back and to go forward at the same time. Not sure which she really wants to do but when the door opens her choice is made for her. Once inside Castle Lehr she almost has a feeling of being home but soon pushes that aside. She wants to focus on her story and the Duke – even if she thinks it’s a bit funny that there is still a real Duke living there. The moment she sees him her laughter ends as she is drawn to his beauty, as much as the house and from the look in his eyes the feeling is mutual. When he tells her the real reason she’s there though will she stay or run?

Nathaniel has waited 300 years for Abigail. She’s the one woman who can break the curse that a witch cast on him all those years ago. Immortality wouldn’t seem so bad if he had someone to share it with, not that he would really want to curse Abigail to stay. He wants her and wastes no time in saying that its destiny that brought them together whether she wants to believe him or not. He knows her better than she knows herself. Well to a point anyway but when an 18th century man tries to tell a 21st century woman what to do you can imagine it won’t go over so well.

There is some chemistry between them that grows slowly when they get close. They are like magnets being drawn together but it seems the witch isn’t too happy with this development. It appears she wanted him all those years ago and being spiteful thought if she can’t have him no one will. Who would love a cursed vampire? Nathaniel’s hoping Abigail, if only for a short time.
