Blog Tour & Giveaway: Storm by Nina Levine...

Release Date: 26th November 2013

Life can be a bitch but love can get you through any storm.

Madison Cole’s family is the Storm Motorcycle Club. Her father is the President and her brother is the VP. She grew up surrounded by bikers, crime and violence. Two years ago she walked away from her family and the world they live in. Her soul was shattered, her heart was broken and she had an addiction she couldn't shake. She picked up the pieces and put herself back together. Now her family wants her back. The club is being threatened and they send a club member to return her home to safety; the one person that could destroy everything she has worked so hard to build.

Jason Reilly has sacrificed a lot for the motorcycle club he calls family. Two years ago he made the biggest sacrifice of all; he gave up the woman he loved for them. Now he is being sent to bring her back and he is conflicted. He thought he was over her but discovers their connection is as strong as ever. Their love was all-consuming, passionate and fiery. It was also their undoing and he doesn't know if either of them is strong enough to battle the demons that ripped them apart, to find love again. 

Madison and Jason are brought back together by a force out of their control; one that pushes them to a breaking point. Can they overcome their past and discover a love worth fighting for or will the harsh reality of their world finally and completely break them both?

I grabbed my purse and headed outside to go and buy lunch.  J was on the phone, but saw me come outside and signalled for me to wait.
“I’m going to buy lunch, J.  And I only get an hour so I don’t have time to wait for you,” I said, tersely.  He kept talking and scowled at me.  I turned and started to walk away from him, towards the cafe where I always bought lunch.
I could hear him muttering something into the phone and then he must have ended his call because he went silent.  Then, he barked, “Madison!”
The last thing I wanted to do was stop for him, but there was something in his tone; a ‘don’t fuck with me’ command.  So I stopped, and turned around to look at him.  Oh, my.  He was shitty. 
He stalked to where I was and got in my face.  “Why the fuck do you have to be so difficult about this?” He was fuming.
Well, I could see him, and raise him in his anger.  “Maybe it has something to do with the way Scott has gone about this.  And the fact that he sent you!”
He flinched.  It was only for a second, and most people wouldn’t have even noticed it.  But I knew J, and I saw it.  It surprised the fuck out of me.  “Well then, it looks like we’ve got some shit to sort out, babe, because I’m not going anywhere.”
“I don’t want to sort shit out with you.  That ship sailed two fucking years ago, J,” I spat.
He gripped my arm, pulling me closer, “No, it fucking didn’t,” he growled, eyes blazing, “And you can’t deny there’s still something here.  I feel it and I know you feel it too.”
I laughed.  No, actually, I cackled.  “You wanna fuck, J?  I can feel that, and, yeah, if you wanna go there, I’m all for it.  But don’t mistake my desire for your cock for anything else.”

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Lovers Unchained by Siren Allen...

Title: Lovers Unchained
Author: Siren Allen
Release date: August 15th, 2013
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Tour: Irresistible Reads Book Tours

A Cursed Demon

Twenty years ago Jude made a huge mistake resulting in him and four of his best friends being cursed by the Dark Witch. For twenty years he has searched for his mate-the only being able to break the curse placed upon him. Until he finds her he will not be able to release the pent up sexual energy that is driving him insane. On his journey to find his mate he is captured and held prisoner by Lana, a vicious vampiress.

A Sex Crazed Vampiress
Lana is intrigued by Jude's ability to resist making love to her. She doesn't know of the curse placed upon him years ago. No matter how hard she tries to seduce him she always fails. His life means nothing to her and she is ready to end his existence, but first she must know what prevents him from succumbing to her seduction. She wonders if it's her or if Jude is like this with all women. To test her theory Lana places one of her female prisoners, Carissa, and Jude together. To her dismay, sparks ignite between the two captives.
A Witch on a Mission
Carissa is searching for her friend who is rumored to have been captured my Lana and her men. She doesn’t plan on finding love but she can’t resist the attraction she feels for her fellow captive, Jude. She senses the desire raging through him and yearns to ease the tension coursing through his muscled body. However, their lust for one another angers Lana and can only lead to one thing…death for both her and Jude.
Now that Jude has found his mate he must get them both to safety before Lana destroys them.
Will Jude lose his mate so soon after finding her or will they escape Lana's wrath and form a bond so strong nothing and no one can break it?

Lovers Unchained (Lana and Jude)

Lana straddled him. She ran her hands up his chest.
Jude kept his eyes closed. “Why didn’t you teleport in?”
“I was trying to be polite.” She licked his nipple. Between her legs, she felt his cock jerk and felt his hardness through her leather suit. She wanted him badly; more importantly, she wanted him to want her. He was an obsession she couldn’t get rid of; a puzzle she couldn’t figure out.
Lana ground her sex against his, drawing a moan from both of their throats.
“I have some friends I want you to meet,” she whispered. She pulled back a little and watched for his reaction. Unfortunately, all he did was yawn; he didn’t even open his eyes.
“Aren’t you a little curious as to who I want you to meet?” Once again, he ignored her. His nonchalance only made her want him more. Every time he ignored her, or pretended to not want her, it only made her work harder to please him and make him want her. Every prisoner she owned would give their last breath to have her show them the amount of attention she wasted on Jude.
Lana licked his nipple again. She refused to give up; defeat was not a feeling she was accustomed to. She placed soft kisses from his nipple up to his neck, and then nibbled along his jaw line. She tried to kiss his lips, but he turned his head causing her to kiss his cheek instead. Lana hissed in frustration.
She was tired of playing games with him. When she told her brother about all the problems this slave was giving her, he asked to borrow Jude for a month to train him, but Lana said no. She wanted to be the one to break him. She gave him plenty of chances to give in to her demands. If she couldn’t have him by choice, she would have him by force.
Without warning, Lana teleported Jude to her bedroom, where they landed on her bed; she quickly climbed off of him.
“Handcuff him to the bed,” she said to her servants waiting in the shadows. She was tired of playing nice. It was time for her to be the bitch he thought she was.

Genre: contemporary erotica romance
Release Date: November 25, 2013
Published by: Entranced Publishing
Jessica Hunter lost her heart and her husband at the same time. He died, and she discovered his infidelities, leaving her a shattered mess.
Five years later, Jessica still isn't interested in a relationship. That is, until she meets sexy, lead actor Penn Jackson on the set of a popular tween movie and her life gets turned upside down. Swept away by Penn's carefree attitude, she lets him into her heart and her bed even though Penn warns her that being with him will change her life.
Penn's warning doesn't mean much to her. But when his publicist begins a campaign to get rid of her, and a trip to the emergency room turns into a tabloid explosion, she doesn't just lose her anonymity, but also her job. Now, Jessica will have to choose between the man she loves and the life she's always known.

Penn’s free hand came up and brushed my jaw. I reached for the towel, trying to control the rush of heat he was causing. When I brushed against his hand, electricity charged through me.
I saw it coming. I hadn’t been with a man in five years, but this might as well been a neon sign. The kiss was definitely not a surprise and I could have stopped it. But I didn’t. I wanted it so bad I had to restrain myself from throwing myself at him. His eyes darkened, his head tilted, his hand slipped around my jaw, and then my neck, pulling my mouth to his. A power pulsed and tingled from my lips before his lips hovered over mine.
“Stop me now if you don’t want this,” he whispered.
My hands moved to lightly rest on his chest and our mouths came together. His touch was feather-light at first, testing to see if I would push away. He leaned back and looked into my eyes, searching for an answer to his unspoken question, “Was this okay?”
A smile of embarrassment tugged at my mouth. I tried to drop my head, but his hand held me where I was, his thumb caressing circles on my cheek. He brought his mouth to mine again, asking for more. He slid his other arm around my back and pulled my hips against him. His lips opened slightly, his tongue explored. I could taste the rich beer he’d been drinking. The moan I suppressed earlier escaped my throat.
I pushed back and turned away from him, straightening my shirt nervously. I fanned myself with my hand, babbling. “I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me.” I refused to look at him and I headed for the door. “I’m sorry. This is a mistake. I don’t do this.”

Book Review Tour & Giveaway: Alex's Destiny by Amy Gregory...5 out of 5 rating...

a Rafflecopter giveaway

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Title: Alex’s Destiny (Racing to Love #4)
Author:  Amy Gregory
Expected Publish Date:  11-1-13
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Book Synopsis:
Her destiny was written for her, long before she was ever born.  She embraced it, wanting nothing more than to give everything within her back to the sport in which she was considered royalty.  Her family’s legacy would live on, revered by all.  And she thrived on the long work days she spent teaching at the academy her blood was tied to.  Alexandra Sterling needed that dirt track as much as she needed her next breath.
That same track was the one that drew in a young student years before.  Alex had given her heart away the day they met, knowing that he belonged to only her.   For years she’d waited, knowing without a single doubt that he’d make her his when the time was right.  
But…she’d never asked Dallas if he felt the same way.  
Her hurt leaves her vulnerable, her days dark and her instincts dulled. After one night of hell, Alex is lost. Her world is crumbling around her, and without her lifeline and best friend beside her anymore, there’s nothing to keep her from sinking with it.
Dallas Hunter is a pro rider on the motocross circuit, following in the footsteps of his father Eli. For Dallas, it’s always been Alex, but he’s kept his feelings locked away out of fear, his love for their family, his biggest obstacle.
One short and chilling phone call to her puts him on high alert. Knowing something is terribly wrong sends him racing across the country, back home, back to her. But what he finds almost kills him.
Now he’s watching her slip away right before his very eyes. Figuring out how to help Alex before it’s too late, might turn out to be harder than any race he’s ever ridden. And he has to do it with his team and sponsors screaming at him from the other side, trying to pull him back to the world he’s dedicated his entire life to.  
Dallas knows he has to help his best friend, the woman he loves…and do it without tearing his family apart.

Book Links:

I'm a big fan of Amy Gregory and of this series. I had mixed emotions about reading this book. I was so excited to read about Alex and Dallas but sad to see this wonderful series, that I have grown to love so much, come to an end. I think that this story was definitely my favorite of the series. I also think that it was the most emotional and I loved every second of it!!

I fell in love with the potential romance between Alex and Dallas in Eli's Honor.  They were so cute together and I loved how Alex at such a young age grabbed onto Dallas and didn't let go.

This was such a great story that had me crying both happy and sad tears. I loved how Dallas was there for Alex and gave her the support she needed to heal. He knew her so well that he just instinctively knew what she needed and was able to give her the security and comfort that she was unable to obtain on her own or from anyone else. I actually loved how she relied only on him and was able to have that peace with him ~ so sweet. I just loved Ruby and the necklace Dallas gave Alex ~ the significance of that necklace had me sighing!! 

I am still hoping for a book for Tasia and Levi ~ they were such a cute couple and maybe jack as well. *crossesfingers*

I was so happy to read about all my favorite characters again and see how they are years later. Just a great emotional read that was so typical of Amy and why I love her books so much. 

Author Bio:
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs.  The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”.  She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions.  Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years.  And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well.  At least she’s grateful most of the time!  Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!
