Summary:

Perfect for fans of J. R. Ward, Nalini Singh, and Lara Adrian, bestselling author Virna DePaul’s new series of paranormal romances introduces readers to a thrilling world where vampires secretly co-exist with humans, seduction rules the night, and the stakes are nothing less than life and undeath.

Welcome to a mesmerizing world where vampires hide among humans. This centuries-old species has its own rules, code of conduct, and taboos. Only the FBI knows that vampires exist—and although the Bureau agrees to keep their secret, it also plots to give humans the upper hand.

Turning mortals into vampires is forbidden.

But there are creatures who refuse to play by the rules.

Ever since he was turned, FBI special agent Ty Duncan has had one mission: bring rogue vampires to justice. As a recruiter for Belladonna, a shadow agency formed to keep vampires in check, Ty must tap Ana Martin, a troubled ex–gang member and one of the few mortals who can infiltrate places that his kind and the law cannot. From their first encounter, Ty fights a hunger to make Ana his own.

When Ty claims to have information about Ana’s missing sister, Ana has no choice but to trust this captivating stranger who awakens her deepest desires. But as she and Ty climb the heights of pleasure and passion, an enemy is conspiring to destroy them both.

Can Ana help Ty find his humanity in a love that could heal them both, or will their passion lead them into a darkness impossible to escape?

AJ’s Review:

Gripping! Provocative! Sexy! Intense! Dangerous!  Thought-Provoking!  These are only a few of the words that come to mind after reading TURNED by Virna DePaul. The Belladonna Agency, Ms. DePaul’s new series is definitely a hit in my book. With passion characters, a compelling plot, sexy, yet sensual love scenes and action-packed drama to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end, TURNED had everything this reader was looking for in a paranormal suspense.

Ty immediately captured my heart with his brooding soul that was desperate for unconditional love and at times, full of regret. You could feel his anguish and desire for Anna in his tumultuous waves of emotion. Would he find unconditional love and acceptance in Ana…only time would tell? But what I do know is that was one dangerous vampire who protected what/who belonged to him and in his mind and dreams, Ana belonged only to him. The brutal honesty that this couple exhibited with one another only enhanced the sexual chemistry that was simmering below the surface. You couldn’t help but want this dynamic couple to find their Happily Ever After.

In some ways, Ana was a force to be reckoned with whether she realized it or not. I loved her mix of feistiness and vulnerability. Not only did it make her character more believable, but it also made her easy to relate to. It was obvious she had been placed between a rock and a hard place, but more important, it was self-evident that she was up for the challenge.

The secondary characters were an interesting bunch who only piqued my curiosity, especially regarding what Ana and the rest of the women who were recruited had in common. In fact, the more I learned about each of them, the more I couldn’t wait for their stories to see how this all played out. Ms. DePaul did an excellent job laying the groundwork for the series. The characters are three-dimensional, the dialogue is crisp, the danger is imminent, the suspense is climatic, the sex is hot, and the love is endearing. I can’t wait for the next story in the series because it is sure to be a doozy after reading the teaser.

If you’re looking for a sexy, paranormal suspense with grit, intensity, gutsy heroines, alpha heroes and wall-to-wall fast-paced action, then pick up a copy of TURNED by Virna DePaul. Ms. DePaul has hit the ball out of the park with her new series, The Belladonna Agency and I can’t wait to discover the endgame. :)

Teaser2FINAL

Whenever I’ve taken personality tests, I’ve always scored high in two different areas: creative and introspective.

This has played out rather interestingly in my life as my creative and thinking sides have often opposed but also complemented one another. I long to be creative and spontaneous, but I also need to think everything through.

Repeatedly!

I think this tension is pretty apparent in my writing, too, and it’s what makes me less likely to pull my punches. I’ve been told I write emotional romance with smoking hot love scenes, but also extremely complex, thought-provoking plots. One reviewer has said that whether a reader loves one of my stories or not, she’ll never be bored.

For the most part, I’m drawn to darker characters. Flawed people that might create controversy. Tough situations that aren’t always comfortable for others to witness. In my very first published book, for example, my hero had loved the heroine for years and finally made a move on her, but he happened to still be married at the time. That wasn’t a situation everyone was a comfortable with, no matter how I motivated it (he was a vampire whose race didn’t believe in fidelity; in fact, his wife wanted the hero and heroine to be together.)

The characters in my upcoming Belladonna series aren’t run-of-the-mill either. Turned releases April 1, 2014, and features a heroine with a dark past—a Puerto Rican ex gang member who spent two years in prison and before that, did plenty of things to survive on the street that aren’t easy to overlook.

To give you a little idea of what Ana is like, here’s a little dossier I wrote up on her. In the series, she’s been recruited by Belladonna, a black ops agency that hunts vampire criminals.

Eliana Garcia (aka Ana Martin; Heroine, Turned)

Eliana is a Puerto-Rican American who grew up in the Bronx. Raised by a single mother, a drug addict and prostitute, she has a younger half-sister, Gloria.

Eliana became involved with a local gang when a core member named Miguel befriended her and saved her life during an attempted robbery. Eventually, she ran guns and drugs for the gang, and committed thefts; however, she steered away from committing violence on innocents. Although Eliana thought of the gang as her family, she never wanted the gang life to touch her sister. When she was eighteen years old, she tried to leave the gang…but ended up in prison for two years instead.

At the beginning of the book, she’s changed her name to Ellie Martin and owns a coffee shop in downtown Seattle.

When she realizes someone is following her, she confronts him at gunpoint. In the midst of combat, the last thing she expects from him is a job offer.

Skills: Street smarts/survivor skills, pool hustler, super techno wizard (she learned computer skills after she entered the juvenile system)

Weaknesses: Lack of sophistication, hot temper, occasionally lapses into bad grammar/street talk, afraid of heights

If She Was A Casino Game: Street dice (loaded).

Motto: Attack first, ask questions later.

Needs to learn: Sometimes subtlety produces the best results.

The Agency’s Offer: Complete her mission and be reunited with her estranged sister, Gloria.

Mission: Infiltrate a cult called Salvation’s Crossing.

Hero: Ty Duncan, the first of two of the Agency’s primary Field Training Officers. Powerful but with a sophisticated edge. British accent. He also happens to be a turned vampire.

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my new series!

The Hob by Dana Marie Bell
Series: The Gray Court, Book 4
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Erotic Romance
Length: 226 pages

Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook

Summary:

Robin Goodfellow has met his match.

The Gray Court, Book 4

When the Black Queen kidnaps one of the White Queen’s nephews, Robin Goodfellow is sent to ensure that the young prince safely returns to the bosom of his family. True to his role as Oberon’s Hobgoblin, he is ready for anything…except meeting his truebond, the very delicious, very human Michaela Exton.

Michaela has dreamed about a flame-haired rogue named Robin Goodfellow since she was a little girl, but everyone knows Puck doesn’t really exist. In real life, it’s a dark-eyed man named Ringo who makes her heart beat faster.

She is closer to her dream man than she thinks, and nobody knows it better than Robin, who wears the guise of Ringo. But there’s competition for her love in the form of Lord Raven, who holds a secret that will rock the foundation of Robin’s world. As a Black Court delegate does the unthinkable, leaving an enraged, grief-stricken Robin hanging onto his humanity by a thread, only Michaela has the power to bring him back from the killing edge—if she survives.

Warning: This book contains explicit sex, graphic language, Robin Goodfellow and… Really. Do I need to say any more?

Blackraven’s Review:

Dana Marie Bell has penned an enchanting, humorous, intense, passionate story full of fantasy, danger, and love. I knew The Hob’s story would ROCK MY WORLD and Ms. Bell did not disappoint.

Michaela is a breath of fresh air. She cares about her friends, family, co-workers, well except the boss, and has been in love with The Hob since she was a child. Somewhere in the back of her mind, she’s always known that her mysterious, sexy love who knows how to satisfy her physically and mentally truly existed, but she never thought in a million years that she would ever meet the man. Or, has she? Torn between Ringo who appeals to her on more than one level and her unrequited love for The Hob, will Michaela have to choose between the two sexy, mysterious men.

The Hob is…well The Hob. I love this character because he does what has to be done and makes no apologies for it. He’s fierce and protective over the ones he loves, yet there is also a vulnerable side to this strong, stubborn man. Add to that his humor, quick wit, and strong sex appeal and who wouldn’t fall in love with him. But is he ready to find his soul mate?

The secondary characters only increase the depth and complexity of the story. I love catching up with characters from previous books because it seems to bring everything full circle, especially in a series. The dialogue is crisp, the sex almost melted my e-reader, the friendship is loyal, and the love is endearing. I couldn’t get enough of this captivating story full of danger and suspense. If you haven’t checked out Dana Marie Bell’s The Gray Court, then do so immediately because she is a mastermind at writing fast-paced, action-packed, drama filled stories with heart and soul. Her characters are always engaging and her writing skills definitely leave you begging for more.

Chasing Morgan by Jennifer Ryan
Series: The Hunted Series, Book Four
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense
Length: 432 pages

Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook

Summary:

Book Four in The Hunted Series …

FBI agent Tyler Reed trusts only facts and evidence, until the day a beautiful blonde delivers a life-saving warning … based on nothing more than a vision.

Five years later, the mysterious Morgan Standish has used her talents to help Tyler and the FBI bring down countless criminals. Still, Tyler knows next to nothing about her. She contacts him by phone—and by some sort of psychic connection he’s not prepared to admit exists—but has not shown herself once. Until now.

Morgan’s gift may let her see things others can’t, but it comes at a price. Getting too close to anyone is dangerous, especially the gorgeous, moody Special Agent Reed. For she’s seen the future: if they meet again too soon, an innocent could be lost.

But when Tyler’s latest case forces Morgan out of hiding, she is the one thrust into the path of a serial killer, the Psychic Slayer, who will stop at nothing to protect the secrets only Morgan can see.

AJ’s Review:

Jennifer Ryan is a mastermind at penning stories full of suspense, danger, drama, and fast-paced action that quickly draws the reader into the heart of the story and Chasing Morgan is no exception to the rule. This hard-hitting, action-packed story took my breath away. I knew that Tyler and Morgan’s story would be good just from the build-up during the other stories, but Ms. Ryan simply knocked my socks off and left me salivating for more. I love this series and if you haven’t checked it out, then what are you waiting for because the characters are engaging, yet real, the love is endearing, the sex scenes are sensual, and the friendship, respect, and loyalty that these characters have for one another is simply magnificent. I was captivated by this scintillating story from beginning to end.

Tyler is one sexy, stubborn, torchered alpha male who might miss out on his only chance at happiness if he doesn’t wake up and smell the coffee. In love with a ghost, but too afraid to admit it, Tyler embarks on a journey of settling, which is destructive in and of itself because he runs the risk of not only ruining his own life, but also others. His friends desperately want to help him because they see what Tyler is too afraid to admit…that he’s head-over-heels in love with Morgan.

Morgan is a sassy, intuitive, and psychic with many secrets. I love her caring heart, but also her fierce determination and strength that’s required to stand up to her sadistic family. Use to living a lonely existence, her only lifeline to the outside world has shut her out of his life. Fortunately, Morgan knows some things that Tyler doesn’t, but the one thing she doesn’t know is how all of this will play out. As the danger lurking in the shadows come to the forefront, it will take everything this couple has not to lose their faith, hope, and love for one another. But the cards are still up in the air, so it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen next.

The secondary characters were simply amazing. Not only did they increase the depth and complexity of the story, but they also added humor and a touch of reality to the plot. It was great catching up on what was happening with the characters from the previous books. Ms. Ryan’s The Hunted series is by far one of the most thrilling, sit on the edge of your seat, biting your nails series that I’ve read in a long time. What a pure delight and I’m hoping that she has more characters in mind because I definitely need more of this series. Please don’t tell me this was the last book because I might just cry. Jennifer Ryan has definitely hit a home run with Chasing Morgan and I’ll definitely be recommending this titillating read to my friends.

Series: A Brown Family Novel, Book Two
Publisher: Berkley
Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Length: 304 Pages

Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook

Summary:

KEEPING IT TOGETHER

Brody Brown has always been responsible for others. After his parents’ deaths, he gave up a promising artistic career to care for his younger brother and sister. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, has a nice house, makes a decent living, and he’s finally on his own.

Elise Sorenson has come to Seattle with her young daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina—and just as many years in a marriage gone bad—she’s looking for neither love nor attention. But she finds both when a handsome, honest man befriends her with no strings attached.

More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need—wild, physical passion without commitment. But it’ll take a shadow from Elise’s past to make them look beyond what they need—to what they truly desire.

AJ’s Review:

Hot. Sensual. Sexy. Breathless. These were only a few of the words that came to mind after reading Lauren Dane’s Coming Undone. Let’s just say by the time this riveting story came to a conclusion, I was completely undone and head-over-heels in love with Brody. Elise was one lucky woman and I’d switch places with her in a heartbeat. :)

I liked Brody from the moment he was introduced in Laid Bare. There is something so sexy about this gentle giant, who protects what’s his and whether Elise knows it or not, she and Rene belong to Brody and he will do whatever it takes to protect them from the past. While the sexual chemistry is off the charts, it’s the swooning and courting that wins me over. Once Brody realizes how much Elise means to him, he begins to slowly court her in a way that is simply sinful, yet sexy and sensual. Yep, it’s completely swoon-worthy. :) I loved how he had the come to Jesus meeting with Raven, yet still helped her realize that she was an important part of his life…just not the most important part because that ship had sailed.

My heart broke for Elise who was just trying to survive the past, the present, and hopefully embark on a future she never thought she would have or realized that she really wanted until Brody. What I loved most about Coming Undone is that Ms. Dane focused on Brody, Elise and Rene’s relationship as a triad because that’s exactly what it was…a relationship with multiple layers. Not only did this increase the believability of the story, but it also increased the depth and dimension of each character. Rene is an amazing little girl who you can’t help but fall head-over-heels in lover with as she brightens up each page with her quick wit, tenacity, perception, and resilience. She knew what her mother needed even before her mother did. :)

The more I learn about the secondary characters, the more intrigued I become regarding their stories. I can’t wait to see who Ms. Dane pairs up next and what trials and tribulations they will have to overcome in order to find their Happily Ever After. I loved Elise’s parents and was excited by the role they played in the book. The dialogue continues to be realistic and fresh, the sex smoldering hot, and the love so fulfilling and joyful that it simply burst at the seams from every page. Ms. Dane once again proves that sometimes you find love when you least expect it, which is definitely the case with Brody and Elise in Coming Undone.

Summary:

It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with wild, uninhibited rocker Erin Brown. What happened between them got under his skin—even if love wasn’t in the cards just yet…

Now that they’re back together, picking up where they left off is tough in light of Erin’s troubled past. As Todd earns her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected turn. Todd’s best friend, Ben, comes to play, arousing their deepest fantasies. The passion they share transforms Erin, but it may not be enough to face the evil she thought she had left behind.

AJ’s Review:

Lauren Dane is a mastermind at penning heartfelt stories that will break your heart, yet warm your soul, make your body sizzle, and incorporate several poignant messages the reader will walk away with and Laid Bare is no exception to the rule. What a compelling story full of brutal honesty that’s so real the characters can’t help but leap off the pages. If you’re not in love with Erin, Todd and Ben by the time you’ve finished reading Laid Bare then something is definitely wrong, because this dynamic trio is guaranteed to steal your heart, soul, and body with their amazing story of love.

When Todd first meets Erin, she’s a free spirit who sets his body and soul on fire. Unfortunately, fear enters the scene and prevents this magnificent couple from finding their Happily Ever After. Ten years later, they meet again and the sparks are still there, yet so much more…tragedy, loss, pain, anguish, and regret. In essence two broken souls that are in need of healing. I loved how Ms. Dane allowed the reader to experience all of the tumultuous emotions that was radiating between Erin and Todd. My heart broke for both of them. In addition, the reader was able to witness the difference in both Erin and Todd as they accepted their sexuality and was willing to give one another what they truly needed, both in and out of bed. And as if that wasn’t enough, Ms. Dane incorporated another twist that involved best friends becoming lovers and so much more, which is always a favorite trope of mine.

The sexual chemistry between Erin, Todd and Ben is off the charts, but it’s the love and respect that these three have for one another that won me over. Their willingness to put it all on the line and venture into an unconventional relationship is inspiring. Moreover, their ability to help one another heal and deal with the past, which is dark, dangerous, and simply heartbreaking, is a testament to the complexity of this story and the situation. If you don’t crack a tear or two while reading this compelling story full of compassion and love, then something truly is wrong in my humble opinion. :)

The secondary characters were absolutely amazing and made me want to know more about them as the story progressed. Brody and Adrian are amazing brothers who have stood by Erin no matter what without judgement and that’s an amazing feat in and of itself because often family are our worst critics. Ella was so sweet and I can’t wait for her story. Raven piques my curiosity on so many levels that it’s simply scary. Ms. Dane has created an amazing group of characters with enough drama to give any daytime soap a run for it’s money. The dialogue is refreshing and believable, the sex is scorching hot, and the love is endearing and everlasting.

If you’re looking for a riveting story that will give you a new perspective on life, help you remember the importance of accepting yourself as well as your loved ones, and rev up your sex life, then Laid Bare is the perfect book to read. Ms. Dane has crafted an amazing story in which our heroes and heroine triumph over adversity to find their Happily Ever After. Bravo!

Publisher: Montlake Romance
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 206 pages

Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook

Summary:

A wife by Wednesday…a love for a lifetime

Blake Harrison:
Rich, titled, and charming…and in need of a wife by Wednesday. Blake turns to Sam Elliot, who isn’t the businessman he expected. Instead, Blake is faced with Samantha Elliot, beautiful and feisty with a voice men call 1-900 numbers to hear.

Samantha Elliot:
Owner of matchmaking firm Alliance and not on the marital menu…that is, until Blake offers her ten million dollars for a one-year contract. And there’s nothing indecent about this proposal. The money will really help with her family’s medical bills. All Samantha will need to do is keep her attraction to her new husband to herself and avoid his bed.

But Blake’s toe-curling kisses and sexy charm prove too difficult for Sam to resist. It was a marriage contract that planned for everything…except falling in love.

AJ’s Review:

Wife by Wednesday is a sexy, enchanting, entertaining story full of romance, drama, and endearing love. In fact, I loved the whole concept of this book.

Sam’s no nonsense, professional attitude is refreshing even when she encounters the delectable Blake Harrison who simply exudes sex appeal. Let’s be honest, the man has every quality a woman would want and when you add an indecent proposal into the mix, this couple sizzles with lust. Ms. Bybee keeps the plot and dialogue fresh, yet realistic with a few twists and turns that creates havoc for our hero and heroine while bringing them closer together.

Although some may disagree, I think it’s the chance that makes this story so intriguing. I mean, yes they are married…temporarily. So, when their emotions begin to join in the fun along with their libidos, sparks begin to fly and the race is on to find their Happily Ever After whether they want to admit it or not. The hurdles that this dynamic duo had to overcome was realistic and only increased the depth of the plot. The secondary characters were a mix of naughty, nice and downright nasty, which kept the reader as well as our hero and heroine on their toes. I loved that Ms. Bybee allowed the story to play out without forcing our characters into a relationship or down a path that they wouldn’t have normally taken.

If you’re looking for a romance with a whole lot of spice and everything nice, then Wife by Wednesday is definitely the book to read. Not only is it a quick read, but also an enjoyable one and a great way to spend an afternoon.

Summary:

Sequel to Wife by WednesdayThe New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling novel that launched Bybee’s Weekday Brides series

Carter Billings:
Sandy blond hair and Hollywood good looks, Carter could have any woman he wants. When he makes his bid for governor of California, he knows he must settle down and become a family man. His choice for a running mate between the sheets: matchmaker Eliza Havens.

Eliza Havens:
Eliza’s happy that her best friend has a wealthy, adoring husband. It’s the husband’s best friend—sexy, dashing Carter Billings—that drives her crazy. No man has ever squabbled with Eliza this much…or made her heart race this fast. Matching couples is how she earns a living, but long-held secrets mean getting married isn’t an option. Until now.

AJ’s Review:

ABSOLUTLEY BRILLIANT! Ms. Bybee amps up the fun and the pleasure in Married by Monday. I love the unrequited love trope and when you add a touch of danger and suspense to the plot, things begin to heat up.

Eliza Havens is a woman of mystery who knows how to take care of herself. She’s experienced things that will shock her friends, but when this damsel in distress decides to stop running, her friends have her back.

Carter Billings is sex on a stick and has eyes only for Eliza. If he could get past her defenses, sharp tongue, and dark secrets, these two would burn up the pages with their uninhibited desires because the sexual chemistry simmering below the surface is smoldering.

What I enjoyed the most about Married by Monday is the fact that Catherine Bybee incorporates plenty of twists and turns to make each story in the Weekday Brides series unique. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters. The dialogue and humor is witty, the sarcasm is in abundance, the sex is decadent, and the love is everlasting. The secondary characters continue to be a joy to read about as they provide our heroine and hero with advice and bring us up to speed with what’s going on in their lives.

Married by Monday is a compelling story full of pure unadulterated lust, good clean fun, sinful pleasures, genuine friendships, a touch of danger, and an overwhelming abundance of unconditional love. The characters will entice you, the danger will pique your curiosity, and the love will keep you coming back for more. Bravo Ms. Bybee! You’ve hit a home run with Married by Monday and I’ll definitely be recommending your Weekday Brides series to my friends.

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense
Length: 341 pages

Amazon Kindle Barnes and Noble Nook

Summary:

From New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes the newest installment in her popular Weekday Brides series.

Gwen Harrison:
The beautiful, high-born daughter of an English duke came to America to take over her sister-in-law’s matchmaking business. But just because she’s the boss doesn’t mean she can’t fantasize about making her own perfect match with bodyguard Neil MacBain. Will the enigmatic man who haunts her dreams cost her more than she bargained for?

Neil MacBain:
The retired Marine can’t deny the effect blue-blooded Gwen has on his troubled soul or his battle-hardened body. But as a client, Gwen is off-limits—until a threat from Neil’s past returns…and Gwen is caught in the crossfire. Now to keep her safe he will risk it all: his career, his life…and his heart.

AJ’s Review:

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible, this series gets better and better with each installment. Catherine Bybee pulls out all of the stops in Fiance by Friday with our stubborn Marine, Neil MacBain, and our feisty Brit, Gwen Harrison. Yes, I described Neil as a Marine instead of “retired” or “former” because once a Marine always a Marine, and this sexy, alpha male has no problem proving that when the woman he loves is in danger.

Gwen is a hoot, especially when the other women begin Americanizing this proper British lady who has her eyes on the sexy, stubborn, off-limits, possessive, protector, Neil McBain. I loved Gwen and McBain’s snappy comebacks, intense passion, and vulnerabilities, which made their characters come to life. The action is fast-paced and it quickly becomes difficult to determine who is friend and who is foe. Ms. Bybee does an excellent job of keeping the reader in suspense as she weaves a complex tale of lies, deceit and betrayal.

Although the reader is afforded a few snippets of our former couples in the series, Catherine Bybee’s primary focus is on our hero and heroine as they risk it all to catch a killer from McBain’s past while conquering their fears in order to find their Happily Ever After. Fiance by Friday is entertaining, suspenseful, and sweet, yet full of explosive passion that will make your toes curl. The dialogue is crisp, the danger is imminent, and the love is free-flowing. If you haven’t read Catherine Bybee’s Weekend Brides series, then you’re definitely missing out. So grab your copies today.
