Beyond the Reach of Judgement by Jo Bissell
Publication date: April 19th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal
Synopsis:

“Did we leave any sin out?” She replied with a forced weak laugh.

“No. Between the two of us, I think we have managed to cover them all.” He mumbled as that uncomfortable lump in his gut returned.

Julien Rene Durant was once a good man. Born in France, he took the oath as a Jesuit Priest in the 1600s. He dedicated his life to spreading the Gospel. Now, he was a monster surviving off the blood of others; killing for survival even as he wished for nothing other than for his own extinction. After almost four centuries of guilt and hopelessness, he encounters someone who might just be able to rescue the good man trapped within the monster, but will his judgements deny him a second chance?

Mary Ruth Jacobson-Ryan is nothing special; a small town girl stuck in a rut. Married to the local Iraqi War Hero who turned out not to be the perfect guy she fell in love with before the war, she is desperate for a way out. When things turn from bad to worse, she runs with plans to never look back. She quickly finds, however, that her search for a better future may lead her down a path with no future at all.

New Release and Giveaway: The Replacement by Rachael Wade

Another new book from Rachael Wade–doesn’t she ever sleep? ;)
Replacement Teaser 3
The Replacement by Rachael Wade
Publication date: January 27th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
Synopsis:

*Contains sexually explicit content and mature subject matter, including language and elements of abuse.*

A gritty New Adult drama about a young woman’s self-destructive quest to find purpose, self-worth, and love in a broken world.

My name is Elise Duchamp. I’m twenty-three years old and I’m known as the town whore.

No, not the kind who exchanges sexual favors for money. The other kind. The kind who gives it all away for free, whenever and however she likes. I am that girl. The one everyone whispers about and the one none of the girls seem to like, because all of their boyfriends either want to sleep with me or already have. Promiscuity is my thing—the kind that slowly, violently turns my insides black, but gives me something I need.

All things considered, I’m not completely reckless. I’m safe, and contrary to popular opinion, I do have a heart. I live in a world of careless choices, and with those choices come careless people. I cannot judge them, because I am one of them. I too bow down to the altar of the self-serving. I am not a good friend. I am not and never could be anyone’s girlfriend. I’m convinced any goodness in me shriveled up and died long ago.

But I am a replacement. That is something I know how to be, and this is a story of the lengths I’d go to in order to keep it that way.

Excerpt:

“Stop!” I shriek, thrashing on his lap like a fish out of water. “Ryder, stop!”

He digs at my hip again, sending me tumbling into an endless fit of laughter. My lungs burn because I can’t breathe and my sides ache from the exertion. I topple over and land on my side, and Ryder comes with me, sliding on top of me in one smooth, swift movement. “I think we’ve played enough games for today ,” he says, running the palms of his hands up the sides of my thighs. His thumbs roll slow, soothing circles into my skin before hooking into the sides of my panties to peel them down my legs. My laughter subsides and I look up at him, my chest heaving as I regain my breath. We lie there on the floor in a tangled heap of limbs, while the fire’s warmth gives Ryder’s face a soft glow.

Small pops crackle from the fire and gravitate toward us, saturating the silence.

Lowering his forehead to my shoulder, Ryder kisses the skin there. “Do you feel it yet?”

“Feel what?” Desolation? Helplessness? Excitement? I feel all of those things.

“This.” Ryder’s hand slides down my chest and torso like silk, slipping beneath my skirt, easy as breathing. I gasp as his fingers slip inside of me. “Desire. The same kind I feel for you.”

“You know I do.”

He strokes me for a moment then stops, leaving me panting while he reaches back to the couch to pick up the bowl of ice cream. It’s melted now, each color swirling together like mixed paint. “Feed me,” he whispers, lifting the bowl to me.

My dazed gaze drifts to the bowl. I hesitantly sit up on my elbows and cradle it, watching him curiously as I begin to spoon him the milky leftovers. He accepts a spoonful, then another, groaning in appreciation. He pushes the spoon away when he’s satisfied and I set the bowl down, watching as he brings my hand to his lips. Sucking one finger then the next, he moves slowly from tip to tip, drawing me farther and farther away from our question-and-answer session.

“Ryder,” I breathe.

He closes his lips over my right index finger and sucks, drawing it slowly from his mouth. The mixture of cool and warm coats my skin, and I wonder how I’ll ever enjoy ice cream without Ryder after tonight. “I really want this,” he says. “Us.”

I shut my eyes and he moves in, brushing his lips against mine. “You have us. Right here.”

“Do I?”

My eyes drift open.

He deepens the kiss, murmuring against my mouth. “I’ll never just drive away, Elise Duchamp.”

The words zap me like a stun gun. My voice comes out in a light rasp. Small and breathless. “I’ve hurt people, Ryder.”

He studies me for a moment but doesn’t respond, only deepens his kiss. I cave into him, letting him devour me whole. I don’t know what I can give him. I don’t know if I have anything at all. But I do know that Ryder Jacobson is trouble.

The good kind.

Day 5

I lost my virginity at age thirteen. I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is no. I wasn’t raped or molested. Nothing horrible happened to me. I didn’t have a daddy complex or a shit life I needed to be rescued from. I just happened to like boys…a lot. I like them all. 

Tall, short, skinny, buff, light hair, or dark—I don’t discriminate. My favorite kind, though, are the ones who like other boys too.

I realized early on that one man isn’t enough for me. It’s a simple mathematical fact. Why have one man when you can have two? Any more than two gets complicated. But it’s worth it. Sometimes every woman has to make an exception though—two crappy losers or one smoking hot man.

The night I laid eyes on Hunter Coy, I made my choice. At least until he introduced me to his best friend, Mason Wynn.

Laura Kaye is thrilled to share with you the cover to her next Hard Ink book, Hard to Hold On To which releases on August 19, 2014! Check it out:

HardToHoldOnTo hires

 

Edward “Easy” Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves–which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna’s the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can’t describe how he makes her feel–and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

A Note from Laura:

Hey guys! I am so excited about Easy’s book that I can hardly wait for August to get here! Easy’s character was a total surprise to me. When I initially plotted out the series, there were four surviving members of the Army Special Forces team and therefore I planned for and sold four book in the series. But then, when I sat down to write Hard As It Gets, all of a sudden the story demanded there were actually five guys, and Edward “Easy” Cantrell was born. And I’m so glad! Because Easy’s character is a totally tortured hero, which I adore writing! So I’m super happy that we added his story and this novella into the series, and I can’t wait for you to learn about Easy in Hard to Hold On To!

Is it August yet???

xo, Laura

New Release Review: The Affair by Lily Maxton (Sisters of Scandal series)

 Entangled’s Scandalous line has another new release out right now–Lily Maxton’s historical novella The Affair! Read all about it…

AffairFinal_500

Book Title: The Affair
Author: Lily Maxton
Release Date: 4/14/14
Genre: Historical Romance Novella

 

The Affair Book Synopsis:

She was his for one week only…

When a beautiful stranger ducks into his bookshop during a rainstorm, Cale Cameron, well-known rake, is instantly attracted to her. Elizabeth, Lady Thornhill, is restless and hungers for something she cannot name. Society would never accept a countess and a mere bookseller, so they agree to a one week affair to indulge their desire.

As their passion ignites and their connection grows, Elizabeth threatens the one thing Cale has protected above all else—his heart. Letting her go is the only solution…and the one thing he is not prepared to do.

Review:

A well-written novella is like a happy sigh…and Lily Maxton’s historical novella The Affair is a very, very happy sigh indeed.

Other than the fact that I’d love to hear more, more, more about Elizabeth and Cale–because I absolutely adored them both–I have not a single complaint about this book. Unlike with some shorter works, I don’t feel as if I need to know more about them. Their characters are well developed and sympathetic. The progression of their relationship feels realistic and not at all rushed–much is left to the imagination, due to the abbreviated format of the novella (81 pages, according to Goodreads–will Amazon ever give us actual page numbers in our Kindle versions?) but it’s still well-fleshed out and has a timetable that feels real. There’s just the right blend of sexual chemistry, foreplay, and romance–with a nice dollop of steam for flavor.

Even though there’s probably a million books out there featuring a young widow who finds real love for the first time with a so-called rake, this story made it seem like a fresh and new plot idea instead of a rehashed and tired one.

There’s a crazy amount of bookmarks in my Kindle for such a short piece–here’s just one of my many “I had to highlight that” scenes:

His gaze met hers. “Who were you dancing with before you left the ballroom?”

“The new Earl of Thornhill, my husband’s cousin.”

“I see.”

Her back stiffened. She turned to gaze in front of her. “I can already tell he’s much kinder than my husband. And I’m not young and foolish anymore.”

“Your parents would be in favor of the match, I assume.” The careful neutrality of his voice made her feel like she was being accused of something.

“Yes.”

“But what do you want?”

“I want to please my parents and further my sisters’ chances at good marriages,” she said. As an aristocratic daughter, her duty in life was to marry well. Useless desires didn’t signify; it was who she was.

“You never wish for something different?”

“Such as a bookseller?” she asked lightly.

She saw his smile in the dim light. “Contrary to common perception, booksellers are rather exciting people.”

“I have no doubt of it.” At least when it came to one very specific bookseller. She was sure she could walk with him until the sun crested the horizon without experiencing a second of boredom.

Honestly, every time Cade and Elizabeth’s banter includes a reference to his being a bookseller, my bibliophile heart did a little extra flutter. There’s just something about book characters who appreciate books, isn’t there? Seriously, it made me love him even more–and trust me, he’s very lovable. Plus, he has Clark Kent-like glasses. Swoon! ;)

I was thrilled to note that this book is the first in the Sisters of Scandal series–I’m sincerely hoping that the sisters in question are Elizabeth’s younger sisters Olivia and Anne. The handful of scenes they’re in in this novella are enough to convince me that their books should be just as entertaining. (The scene where the three sisters make a wager at a ball about their mother’s social prowess is just too funny. I can just imagine what havoc they could each wreak with their own storyline–can’t wait!)

Rating: 5 stars/ A

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review…and ended up buying my own copy before I’d even finished it!

Blurb:  For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down.

Review:

Well-written, but a bit confusing–it probably would be a good idea to read the first book in the series before this one. It doesn’t quite work as a standalone. Right from the first page I felt a bit as if I were floundering, trying to catch up with the characters. Even by the book’s end, I still didn’t quite feel totally on top of things.

That said, it is an interesting world that Reese Monroe has built here–I just need a cheat sheet! I like the good versus evil theme, the concept of the Mates, and the idea of the Artifacts that were created to (hopefully, one day) defeat evil. The identity of the seventh artifact blew me away-I absolutely didn’t see that one coming! Justin and Yvonne/Dyre are sympathetic characters, and I’m looking forward to seeing where they will go in the future books in the series.

But hopefully by then I’ll have read book one, so I’ll more completely understand what’s going on! ;)

(It’s absolutely worth the 99-cent price right now, though–pick it up while it’s still on sale and then indulge yourself with book one. That’s my plan!)

EXCERPT:

I’m going to have a baby,” Ivy declares as she stops directly in front of me. Well, her belly stopped directly in front of me, the rest of her soon follows.

Yes, indeed, my wife is definitely going to have a baby. Soon.

I’m getting ready—staring at the mirror as I mess with my tie, making sure it’s perfect—when she approaches me. I shoot her a grin, feeling good, feeling on top of my game. Life couldn’t get any better, you know? We’re celebrating today and with good reason.

“I know, sexy mama.” I turn away from the mirror and wink at her. “Trust me, I haven’t forgotten that I’m the one who knocked you up.”

She stares at me, no reaction to my wink or my words. She usually slaps my ass and kisses me. Says something sarcastic at the very least. But I’m getting nothing. And it’s kind of disconcerting. “Archer. I’m dead serious. I’m going to have the baby.”

“I know, babe. And I can’t freaking wait.” I study her, noticing that she looks a little pale and her pupils are dilated. Hmm. “You feeling okay?”

Rolling her eyes, she rests her hand on top of her protruding stomach, rubbing it absently. Then not so absently. As in, she’s clutching her belly like she’s in pain. “I’m in—” She sucks in a harsh breath, holding it for a few seconds. “—labor, damn it.”
