An erotic paranormal romance…

Dimitri LeBlanc, sexy and charismatic beta of Acadian Wolves, survives a brutal attack after his wolf succumbs to a dark force, threatening his very existence. Waking up, tied to a bed, his amusement transforms into lust as a beautiful stranger heals his beast. Intrigued by his mysterious savior, the tables quickly turn, when in the heat of a dark desert night, he rescues her from a barbaric Alpha. Dimitri is inexplicably drawn to the alluring woman, and the discovery that she’s his mate rouses his hunger to claim her as his own.

Gillian Michel, a New York City photographer, conceals a secret hybrid past and mystical abilities. An entire lifetime, she’s deliberately avoided wolves, but a seductive encounter with an irresistible beta leaves her craving his touch, his lips on hers. Passion ignites her desire, leaving her yearning to submit to the powerful wolf who tests her sexual limits.

Deep in the heart of New Orleans, Dimitri and Gillian seek a cure to the parasite maligning his mighty beast. Still on the run from a malevolent force, they lure their enemy into the bayou. Will Gillian sacrifice her gifts to save the man she loves, destroying her own immortality? And will Dimitri eradicate the evil that has invaded his soul while protecting his mate from an adversary who threatens to kill them both?

**Review** KING TOMB (Forever Evermore, #3) by Scarlett Dawn



KING TOMB (Forever Evermore, #3)
by Scarlett Dawn

Publication Date:  October 8, 2014

► Goodreads ◄

SYNOPSIS

From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spellbinding conclusion to the bestselling, first Forever Evermore trilogy.  

Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability. 

When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller's private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment. 

They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. 

But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can't control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.

 Micki's Review 

Have you ever had a moment where you look at your TBR list and think..."I have nothing to read". Which is a ridiculous thought because, if you are a true bookie, you know at any given time you have 100+ books waiting to be opened and enjoyed. Yet still, there are days when you just want to find that gem that hits you out of nowhere and completely kidnaps you with no chance of escape. 

It was one of those days for me. 

I had gone through my TBR list, scoured the free/99¢ listings on Amazon and trolled through my favorite blog sites to see if something caught my eye... and nothing.  
So I went to my FB profile and opened a message from a friend. At the end of this message, almost like an afterthought, it read...

Hey, have you read King Hall and King Cave by Scarlett Dawn? I stumbled upon them a couple days ago and  haven't been able to put my Kindle down since. I think you would really like them.

CLICK AND CLICK. 

Two books downloaded, one Sexy hot alpha vampire and a sassy little wolf shifter later... and I was hooked! 
Scarlett has a way of writing that sears her characters into your being. She brings you into their world with her words and  traps you there. She writes strong female characters with power and personality. Her male characters are the perfect mix of sweet and alpha. And by the way, this woman can write some steam! You will not be left disappointed by what happens in the bedrooms!

The flow of her writing style keeps everything moving, constantly making you wonder where she is leading you...  You blindly follow because these are the type of books that have you racing to the end to see what happens. Before you realize it, it's 2:00 AM, the first book is done, and you can't start the next one fast enough. 

So you can imagine how happy I was when I was able to sign up for an ARC of King Tomb! 

I could go on and on about this series, the characters and the plot of these books but I won't. I will say, however, that I am so happy that I opened that message. I found my gem and it turned out to be a mix of amazing writing, exciting plot twists, and an ending fit for a Vampire King and Shifter Queen.

Scarlett Dawn has skyrocketed to one of my favorite authors and as long as I have one of her books on my TBR list... I know I won't have to go far to find my gem.

I am giving each book and the entire series FIVE HEARTS. 

Dear Friend, 
Have you read King Hall, King Cave and King Tomb by Scarlett Dawn? If not, do it now. I know you will love them! 




 Lori's Review 

This series was recommended to me by Micki.  One day she told me she was reading this awesome paranormal book with some sexy vampires and I HAD to read it.  Even though Contemporary Romance or New Adult is my usual genre of choice, I do love me a good paranormal every once in a while.  And since I trust Micki’s judgement, especially when it comes to hot, alpha vampires, I started reading this series.  Let me just say that I have thanked her many times for the recommendation!

I LOVED these books!  Absolutely devoured them, obsessed about them, ate them right up.  After reading King Hall (bk 1) and King Cave (bk 2), I could not wait for this book!

With the intense ending in King Cave, I dove right into King Tomb.   The characters were still amazing – the chemistry between Lily & Ezra electrifying.  These two are so powerful, so passionate…certain scenes will leave you breathless.  And it wasn’t just these two that I loved.  I felt a connection to every character in this book - even the ones that I loved to hate.

Scarlett Dawn’s writing flows smoothly, makes you visualize every last detail, and takes you away – making you forget about the real world around you.  You will want to sneak-read at work and crawl into the pages to be part of the story.   When the author can make you feel so many emotions throughout the book, that (to me) makes a rock star author. I am now a huge fan of Scarlett Dawn!  King Tomb gets FIVE amazing hearts from me!

By Genna Rulon



Synopsis:

"Life is messy. Love is messier." -Catch and Release

Meg Adeio has led a life of isolation—not by choice, by necessity—until one act of heroism forces her out of seclusion. Despite a past shrouded in mystery, Meg is “adopted” by an eclectic group of friends that become the family she never had. Life was good for the first time in…ever.

Or it was until Westly Black reappeared on her doorstep. She knew he was the last man any woman should give her time to—only good for one thing—yet a temptation no woman could deny. Wes might make her life messy, but Meg’s eyes were wide open and she had it under control. At least she thought she did.

When past and present collide, loyalties are tested, forcing Meg to sacrifice her future to protect those she loves.

Temper For You is a gripping story of regret, deception, and redemption – filled with raw emotion, sarcastic wit, intrigue, and love’s propensity to forgive.

*********************************************************************************


★ Excerpt #1 ★

I may have slept, but I didn’t rest.  My dreams were plagued by warm caramel eyes that promised endless hours of yet unknown satisfaction.  Damn the man.  He was the single most beautiful creature I had ever seen…devastating, that was the word for him.  If the whole sleazebag-lawyer thing didn’t work out, there’s no doubt Calvin Klein or Armani would be knocking down his door.  His defined bone structure with high cheek bones, prominent jaw, and strong brow were every woman’s fantasy.  And his lips…I wanted to bite those full, luscious lips.  Add the chocolate brown hair that begged to be pulled while locked in an undulating embrace…irresistible!

What was wrong with me?  I knew he was a conscienceless miscreant.  Shouldn’t that knowledge work as a sedative to my recently awakened—and usually dormant—sex drive?  But no, my otherwise mute inner hussy jumped up and down, shouting like a drunken sorority girl after losing her third game of flip-cups, every time he entered a room.

It had taken months after I’d learned who he was and what he had done to force him from my mind.  I lied to my friends, pretending to dismiss him without a second thought, but I couldn’t lie to myself—I still craved him in an unfamiliar and overwhelming fashion.

And now he was going to live next door.

We didn’t even have a few feet of lawn separating us…no, he was a narrow flower bed away.  I could only wonder what I had done to piss off the bitch known as karma to justify this turn of events.

That’s a lie.

I knew what I had done, and I deserved every torturous moment.

Lying alone in my bed last night, I could practically feel his presence seeping through the sheetrock, tormenting me.  As my hand slid down my stomach in response, I chided myself before firmly tucking both hands beneath my pillow to ward off any temptation.  Subsequently, I spent the next hour debating the merits of moving out before vowing not to let him run me off.

He. Would. Not. Win.

Yep, a double dose of chocolate was necessary this morning.

************************************************************************

★ Excerpt #2 ★

Unable to resist, I opened my eyes to find him staring at me intensely.  His gaze was hungry—a starving man before an opulent meal—but there was more.  Behind the craving was gleeful amusement, and I could tell he was savoring every minute as much as me.  In that moment, a deep and acute connection was created, borne from the raw exposure of my weakness and our joint mission to overcome.  It was not love.  It was a mixture of empathy and lust, both of us surrendering to the desire that hammered ruthlessly.  Both of us understanding that sex was all we had to offer the other, and both of us accepting and wanting nothing more.

**Cover Reveal** BATTLE by KJ Bell









Battle
by KJ Bell

Release Date:  October 2014



SYNOPSIS:

A battle is fought by soldiers on the ground in a time of war. Or at least that’s what I used to think.

I’ve never had to fight for anything in my perfectly planned life, and I certainly never thought I’d have to fight for love.
I was wrong.

One wild, carefree night, and one stupid dare made me realize you can’t appreciate love until you’re forced to fight for it. I want the complex, sexy bull rider who stole my heart in the middle of a deserted wheat field. But Battle McCoy doesn’t believe in love.

What do you do when you aren’t prepared for battle? When someone you care for becomes your greatest enemy? And your surrender is imminent?

I’m going to fight.

There’s a chance he’ll destroy me, but my heart will go to war to make him mine.
