Sable Hunter’s “Hell Yeah” Kindle Release & Giveaway

Hell Yeah! Kindle World

Presented by Sable Hunter


Connected by blood ties and bonds of friendship, the Hell Yeah! world chronicles the lives and loves of a family of Texas men and women, the McCoys, who live by the code of the cowboy. Adventure, unabashed sexual tension and tender intimacy plays out in a saga of stories that offer action and humor, all set in scenic locales from the Hill Country of Texas to the mysterious bayous of Louisiana. The plots of the tales are as varied as our own lives can be, but the world is one where right prevails, love conquers all, and holding out for a hero is not an impossible dream.

Empire of Dirt

The da Silva Heirs 3

Two broken hearts, one chance to heal.

Tate Verhoven was broken by an accident that destroyed his legs and his confidence. After a foolish decision, he also lost the woman he loved–to his brother. Feeling betrayed and broken, Tate hides in darkness. Even Cady McCoy is hard pressed to help.
Marcia came to Texas merely to help her sisters, Fatima and Lucy. The Verhovens also need her help after the devastating events of the past weeks. With a heart of stone and steel wall around it, she’s not there to make friends. Designing an expansive plan to help the Verhoven ranch thrive, Marcy is ready to take on the world.
It takes the death of just one head of cattle on a neighboring farm for the accusations of witchcraft and bad juju to start flying. Cady and Lucy are first for the guillotine.
While Tate’s fighting mental illness, superstition, and the mysterious death of cattle around Austin, he’s desperate to find his place again. Taking on the task of proving Cady and Lucy innocent may be exactly what he needs.
To his surprise, the da Silva girls aren’t done with him– or his heart–yet.

Phatt Farm

After twenty years in the military, Eazy Phatt realizes he’s seen it all, done it all, and regretted enough. He retires, planning to stay with family until he decides what to do with his civilian life. He’s thirty-eight and his priority is to find a woman who’ll love him as much as his mom loved his dad. And he’s hoping to do that before he turns thirty-nine.
He soon discovers his mother has invested in a harebrained scheme, capitalizing on the family name. She’s turning the homeplace into a weight loss center. Eazy’s not happy with the new business at all—until the last registered guest arrives accompanied by her dog.
The voluptuous siren is the woman of his dreams. But something has her spooked. She’s on edge, needs to unwind, maybe make a friend. Both she and her dog are watchful, suspicious, guarded. As a battle-scarred veteran, Eazy recognizes a victim of violence. He’s got six weeks to gain her trust and convince her to let him protect her too.
FBI agent Mackenzie Sierra Scott appreciates the irony in her situation. While she recovers from a gunshot wound meant to keep her from testifying against embezzlers, she’s spending six weeks in-hiding at a weight loss center. Her handler probably thinks he’s being cute, knowing she considers dieting stupid. Phatt Farm is going to be six weeks of mindless boredom.
But then again, maybe not. As soon as she meets the resident farmer, Mack thinks of many ways they could burn calories together. When he asks her to help him with farm work as an alternative to a daily regime of yoga, meditation, and pushups, she accepts, picturing hours of gratuitous sex.
Hot body aside, Eazy Phatt is a pain in the neck. Instead of becoming her lover, he turns Mack into a farmhand, keeping her busy from first light till bed. She drives tractor, stacks hay, picks apples, shucks corn, and somewhere along the way, falls in love. And that all happens before the shooting starts.

Without You

Even the strongest woman needs a shoulder to lean on…
Mason Sullivan remembers how he felt the day he learned his oldest brother wouldn’t be returning home. Not alive. Swearing he’d help others, he set a plan into motion. Flash forward…Mason has the life he wanted, but when a seductive, slice of heaven from his past comes back to Kerrville, his so-called “wonderful life” will have more holes than Swiss cheese. The only one who can fill the void is the same person who has the risk of flight. Sure, a cowboy has needs, and she certainly does make his head spin, but his heart isn’t immune to the beauty and he could lose her again…
Two things Kiernan Everhart loves most—her son and Double K Ranch. Years ago, she’d left home to pursue her dreams, but the big city wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Always there for her son, she helps him through the challenges of his medical condition, but sometimes even the strongest woman needs a shoulder to lean on. In Kerrville, she has the support of her family…and Mason Sullivan, the cowboy she stole kisses from back in the day. He’s grown into quite the perfect man and his bedside manner, as nurse and gentleman, sure can make a woman remember she’s more than a mother. She’d like to fall, right into his arms, but her priority is her son. And when her ex shows up, hijacking her happiness, all hell will break loose. Kiernan must perform damage control before the people she loves are hurt.
He didn’t plan to fall, but he did, and Mason would do anything to protect Kiernan and her son. He will not only have to face the demons of Kiernan’s past, but find out who is using scare tactics to send her packing. If it’s the last thing he’ll do, he’ll prove to her that he has the perfect place in his heart for her family.

Coffee and a Chat at the Beach with #CMCon18 Author Deborah Blake

As one of the #CMCon18 featured bloggers, I get to chat with a few of the talented authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2018 in Daytona Beach, February 22 – 25th.  Since we are in the first quarter of a new year, I thought we’d talk about beginnings and first times.

Joining me for Coffee and a Chat at the Beach is  CMC Featured Author Deborah Blake.

Deborah BlakeDeborah Blake is the author of the Baba Yaga series from Berkley (Wickedly Dangerous, Wickedly Wonderful, Wickedly Powerful), the Broken Rider series, and the Veiled Magic series from Berkley. She has also published ten books on modern witchcraft with Llewellyn Worldwide.

☕ Coffee and a chat with Deborah Blake

Tamye: What inspired you to become a writer? Did you always want to be a writer or did you come to it later in life?

Deborah: I’ve been writing most of my life. I think I wrote my first novel in 6th grade. In math class 🙂

Tamye: What was the inspiration for your first book, if different from question #1?

Deborah: A dream, actually!

Tamye: How many times have you attended Coastal Magic? Please tell us about your first time, and what you are looking forward to this time.

Deborah: This will be my 3rd time. So many of my author friends said how much they loved it, I had to try it out. And I loved it too! Everyone is so friendly, it is fun and relaxed, and BEACH. Plus I get to hang with a lot of great people. Did I mention the beach?

Tamye: When and what was the first craft you seriously pursued?

Deborah: I have been a professional jewelry maker for about 30 years. I do way less now that I write (no more shows) but I do sell the things I make at the shop I run and occasionally online.

Tamye: Here are a few examples of the wonderful jewelry Deborah makes.

I’m new to Deborah’s writing.  The first book I read of hers was “Dangerously Charming, book one in her Broken Riders trilogy. Then I devoured the next in the series, “Dangerously Divine. Now I’m eagerly awaiting the third and last book in this exciting trilogy, Dangerously Fierce

From the author of the Baba Yaga novels, a brand new series set in the same “addicting”* world, filled with wild magic, enchanting damsels, and the irresistibly daring men who serve the Baba Yagas…

The Riders are three immortal brothers who protect the mythical Baba Yagas. But their time serving the witches has ended—and their new destinies are just beginning…

Dangerously Charming (Broken Riders Book 1)

Dangerously CharmingEver since a near-fatal mistake stripped Mikhail Day and his brothers of their calling to be Riders, Day has hidden from his shame and his new, mortal life in a remote cabin in the Adirondack mountains. But when a desperate young woman appears on his doorstep, he cannot resist helping her—and cannot deny how strongly he’s drawn to her…

For generations, women in Jenna Quinlan’s family have been cursed to give up their first born child to the vengeful fairy Zilya. When Jenna finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she is determined to break her family’s curse and keep her baby, even if it means teaming up with a mysterious and charismatic man with demons of his own…

To unravel the curse, Jenna and Day will have to travel deep into the Otherworld. But the biggest challenge of the journey might not be solving an ancient puzzle but learning to heal their own broken hearts…

Review by Tamye

Never say never, or you might just be lucky enough to have the universe take up the challenge.

I was completely captivated by Mikail Day and Jenna Quinlan and the people of the Otherworld. Faeries, Baba Yagas, Dragon-Dogs, Bagpipe playing lizards, chameleons, trolls, and so many more. Wonderful world building combined with an enchanted and well-thought out storyline kept me turning the pages, eager to see what would happen next, and who would rescue whom.

I loved this story, and am thrilled that the next one was recently released so I can dive right into Gregori Sun’s story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves romantic fantasy with an HEA.


Dangerously Divine
(Broken Riders Book 2)

Dangerously Devine

The author of the “wonderful” (Tamora Pierce) Baba Yaga novels and Dangerously Charming is back with a magically mesmerizing new tale about the dashing and daring Broken Riders…

The Riders: Three immortal brothers who kept the Baba Yagas safe, now stripped of their summons to protect. But fate is not finished with them—and their new callings are even more powerful…

Though his physical wounds have healed, Gregori Sun, the eldest of the Riders, remains in spiritual turmoil. His search for his mother, the one person able to heal his soul and save his life, is failing—until he crosses paths with a beautiful and fascinating librarian who might be the key to his salvation…

Ciera Evans’s bookish ways are just a guise. The product of a difficult past, she has dedicated her life to saving lost teens—by any means necessary. She works alone, but when a dark, brooding stranger proposes they team up to solve both their problems, she is tempted—in more ways than one…

After Ciera and Sun’s plans are derailed by dangerous enemies, they find themselves entangled in an ungodly affair—one that will force them to either find new strength together or be forever haunted by their pasts alone.

Review by Tamye

This book has it all; An Asian looking dude with a Russian accent, who’s lost his inner cool. He leaves Otherworld to rejoin the land of the Humans to become a Buddhist monk at a monastery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He’s also searching for his mom, who was a powerful Mongolian shamaness, and who might or might not be alive. So, of course, he goes to the library to conduct research where he meets librarian, Ciera Evans.

Ciera might look like the stereotypical librarian by day, but that is only one aspect of her nature. She trades her uptight bun, and understated clothing, for jeans, a hoodie, a braid and volunteer work at a local soup kitchen. Boy, is she in for a surprise when the luscious looking Gregori Sun show up for his first night as their volunteer.

Both have secrets, both have no time for the opposite sex. Monk, remember? But the universe and others have their own agenda, and things quickly heat up.

This is a slightly twisted story that I loved to pieces. Keira and Sun are just friends (so they keep saying), helping one another while lusting after, and falling in love with each other. Not that either will admit it. Just to keep things jumping, we have teenage runaways, a Baba Yaga or two and their companion dragons (luckily disguised as earthly pets), a god, a goddess, a couple of villains, and lots of monks. That’s when things cool down, way down.

Lots of action, twist, turns, hilarity, and an intriguing cast of characters that are so real, and fantastical, that I can’t get enough of them. Thankfully there are more books in this wonderful world of which the author has done a fantastic job of creating.

The only thing which kept me from giving the book a higher rating was the fact that Keira suddenly knew things towards the end, that she couldn’t have known. Oops! But thankfully, it wasn’t enough of a distraction to prevent me from enjoying the story and eagerly awaiting the next.

I will be reading lots more books by this author.

Dangerously Fierce (Broken Riders Book 3)

Dangerously FierceThe Riders: Three legendary brothers who kept the Baba Yagas safe. The Riders’ immortality was stripped away, along with their mission. But they are still much more than Human, and their story is far from over…

His brothers may have found new paths to follow, but Alexei Knight isn’t even looking. If he can’t have the life he was meant to lead, there is no second choice. So he is bent on drinking and brawling his way across the country until he winds up on Cape Cod in a bar called The Hook and Anchor, where he finds challenges he was never expecting, a feisty red-haired bartender, and maybe a lot more than that…

Bethany McKenna left behind an almost-completed law degree to return home and care for her cranky disabled father and run his bar for him. If that wasn’t enough, she also agreed to foster a very pregnant Great Dane. She has enough to deal with without adding in a giant bearded brawler, no matter how appealing he is. Yet somehow he ends up living in the guesthouse, taking care of her father, and sneaking his way into her heart…

Alexei and Bethany both think the lives they wanted have come to an end, but after dealing with a mysterious sea monster, pirates, dragons, and some adorable puppies, they might just discover that love is the greatest adventure of all…

#CMCon18 – A Chat with Renee George, a Review, and a Free Book

Coffee and a Chat at the Beach with #CMCon18 Author Renee George

As one of the #CMCon18 featured bloggers, I get to chat with a few of the talented authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2018 in Daytona Beach, February 22 – 25th.  Since we are in the first quarter of a new year, I thought we’d talk about beginnings and first times.

The second CMC Featured Author joining me for Coffee and a Chat at the Beach is my friend, Renee George.


USA Today Bestselling Author, Renee George writes paranormal mysteries and romances because she loves all things whodunit, Otherworldly, and weird. Also, she wishes her pittie, the adorable Kona Princess Warrior, and her beagle, Josie the Incontinent Princess, could talk. Or at least be more like Scooby-Doo and help her unmask villains at the haunted house up the street.


When she’s not writing about mystery-solving werecougars or the adventures of a hapless psychic living among shapeshifters, she’s preyed upon by stray kittens who end up living in her house because she can’t say no to their sweet, furry faces. (Someone stop telling them where she lives!) Okay, the first kitten totally showed up one day and suddenly she’s got a new pet named Simon. I think he told his pals what a soft heart Renee has.

She lives in Mid-Missouri with her family and spends her non-writing time doing really cool stuff…like watching TV and cleaning up dog poop.


 Coffee and a Chat with Renee

Tamye: What inspired you to become a writer? Did you always want to be a writer or did you come to it later in life?

Renee: When I was four years old, I told my mother that I wanted to write stories. She told me I would have to learn how to spell first. “grin” I wasn’t deterred. I already knew my alphabets, so I used to string letters together and drive her nuts by asking if I made a real word. So, I guess I would fall into the category of always knowing.

Tamye: What was the inspiration for your first book?

Renee: My first book is one that no one has ever seen. It was an 800-page high fantasy tome inspired by the likes of David Eddings, R.A.Salvatore, and Anne McCaffrey. It’s not good, but it taught me a lot of the “don’ts” when it comes to writing. My first paranormal book was inspired by Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake books. Those were the first stories I’d read where the monsters weren’t always the bad guys, and often, they were the heroes. It made me fall in love with urban fantasy and all things supernatural.

Tamye: This is your first time at Coastal Magic. What influenced your decision to attend?

Renee: I decided to attend because I was asked in a really flattering way that made me feel like Sally Fields at the Oscars. Besides, Damon Suede promised me that it would be a great time. Add to that, I get to room with one of my best friends, Robyn Peterman, and I couldn’t say no!

Tamye: Do you craft?

Renee: I actually have crafted in the past, candles, crocheting, wooden signs, essential oil blending, etc. I just haven’t done it in a very long time. I get all my crafty things from my BFF Michele Bardsley.  LOL



Renee just released a new book in her Peculiar Mysteries series, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced copy.

Review By Tamye

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Furred Lines (Peculiar Mysteries Book 6)

While I’ve read every book in this hilarious series, this book can easily be read as a stand alone.  But you’ll probably want to go back and read the rest of the books in the series because they rock, and you’ll want to find out more about all the intriguing characters that make up this unique shifter town.

Our main characters, Mr. Hot, hot, hot ….. Senior Agent FBI man, Dominic Tartan, and Special Agent, (Yeah, she’s special, as in wereraccoon special.  And just like one of those little bandits, she can pick a lock in no time flat), Dr. Nicole Taylor.  He’s gruff, and she’s a bit klutzy, at least around him.  Things soon heat up.  Between the two agents sizzling hot chemistry, (Oops, not supposed to jump the senior agents bones.) and the dead bodies….   Yep, someone’s not behaving.

Things just get better when you add in the dynamics of returning to Nicole’s hometown of Peculiar.  Parents, ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, possible killers, wacko survivalists, and a few other quirky individuals to keep things interesting, or embarrassing, depending on who you ask.

Furred Lines made me smile, laugh, cry and cheer.  It also managed to surprise me a time or two.  The story flowed well, and the characters had a depth that made them real.  I loved this book so much, I went out and bought my own copy as soon as it was released.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good laugh, and a town full of shapeshifters with their mystery.

Furred Lines teaser 1

Synopsis

Wereraccoon Nicole Taylor, a recent Quantico graduate, is eager to prove herself. She’s been assigned to work with oh-so-yummy field agent and werebear Dominic Tartan to catch the serial therianthrope kidnapper Little Piggy.

Dom doesn’t know what to make of the sexy recruit he’s been tasked to train. Half the time he wants to ditch her, the other half of the time he wants to kiss her. Nicole struggles with the urge to sock him one or jump his bones.

The case gets personal when Little Piggy takes a citizen from Nicole’s hometown of Peculiar, Missouri. Dom and Nicole must catch the supernatural criminal—before his latest kidnap victim ends up dead.

Excerpt

“I’ll take the open-faced roast beef sandwich piled high with mash potatoes and extra brown gravy,” a man behind me said. I whipped my head around hard enough to wrench my neck. Dominic Tartan stood a few feet away. He raised his brow at my unasked question. “I finished up early in Springfield. Thought I would join you for lunch.”

I’d texted him about my plans, but I didn’t think he’d track me down.

He turned his gaze to the table, and his expression brightened immensely when he saw Chavvah. “Well, hello, Chav. Is it still Trimmel, or has the good doctor nailed you down yet?”

“He nails me every chance he gets,” she said as if she was commenting on the weather. The slight uptick of the corner of her mouth and the way she reached up to move a lock of hair from her shoulder told me she didn’t mind the flirting, but I’d seen her with Doctor Smith, and if Tartan thought he had a chance in hell with the tall, leggy brunette, he was sorely mistaken.

“So not married.” Dominic smiled.

“We’ve set a date,” she said.

“March twentieth,” Sunny said. “The Spring equinox or some such nonsense. Werewolves are a pain in the ass.”

“True story,” Chav said, “and they sure know how to ruin a perfectly good party.”

Dom spread his hands. “Well, if it’s a party you want…”

Selena, who had been waiting patiently for our orders, giggled.

I stood up. “There isn’t room at this table for another chair. Agent Tartan and I will take the one Mr. And Mrs. Smart just left.”

Selena’s smile grew tight. “I’ll get it cleaned up for you two.” She looked at the deputy. “Should I make it for three?”

I said, “yes,” while Dominic said, “no.”

Eldin shook his head. “You two go on. I’ll finish lunch with Sunny and Chav.”

After we sat at the new table, a small one near the kitchen, I sipped my coffee and glared at Dominic.

He ordered an iced tea then turned to me and said, “What?”

In a quiet shout, the kind that’s all about tone without volume, I said, “What top secret information did you learn that Eldin couldn’t hear?”

“Other than what’s in the files, there’s nothing new to learn.”

“But the victim is definitely a therianthrope?”

“They’re rabbit shifters.”

“That explains the five kids and another on the way. Though, we have a woman in town, a deer shifter, who would give those rabbits a run for their money.”

“You mean Ruth Thompson.”

I assessed him again. “I get you spent a week here a couple years back, but damn, you really paid attention.”

“Ruth is a friend of Chav’s.”

A knot formed in my throat. “Just how well did you get to know Chavvah Trimmel?”

“As well as any man could with a jealous werewolf breathing down his neck.”

I snorted. “So not as well as you’d have liked.”

Dom winked at me, and the knot in my throat tightened.

“Do any of the victims have ties to Peculiar? I really don’t see how any investigation here is going to produce a lead.”

“Actually, there is one thing that ties them all together.” He leaned forward. “They were all at the Tri-State Council Jubilee here in two summers ago.”

“When did you find this out?” Because if it was sooner than the past four hours I was going to be unhappy.

“I got the information when I was driving here from Springfield. You know Wilhelmina Boden, your dad’s new deputy?”

“Oh, yeah, the red-head engaged to Brady Corman.”

Dom’s eyes darkened. “That’s her. She was head of security for the Tri-State Council before her move to Peculiar. She managed to get her hands on a complete list of all the people who attended the event. She gave your dad and me a copy.”

“Did you find out if there are any more killings in this same vein prior to the last three?”

He shook his head. “Not yet.” I noticed for the first time how tired he looked around the eyes.

“We should get to the interviews with the Blonde Bear owners and staff. Mr. Lieberman’s life may depend on it. Though I don’t know what we can learn here. Strangers stick out like sore thumbs. I think Blondina and Roger would have told my dad if anyone around here fit the bill.”

“That’s just it.” Dom rubbed his chin. “I think it’s someone who lives here.”

I nodded, not wanting to agree, but there was no other explanation. “We need to start a list of people who could leave town without drawing suspicion.”

“Agreed,” Dom said. “And we need to do it in a way that doesn’t alert the unsub.”

In a town of less than two-thousand people, my partner was asking for a whole lot of impossible, but there were other things to consider with this criminal.

“This guy is smart. Organized. So, let’s narrow it down by skilled employment or white-collar work.” I planted my elbow on the table as another thought occurred to me. “This killer is real ballsy. He takes his victims outside their homes and returns them. That takes a lot of confidence.”

I felt a hand on my shoulder and turned to see Sunny Haddock staring down at me. Her eyes were glazed, and her very worried-looking best friend stood behind her.

“What is it?”

Chav shook her head. “I’ve never seen her like this.”

With a blank stare in my direction, Sunny said in a monotone voice, “Duck when you see the yellow man. Step over the crack. Skipped stones on the lake. Beware the lying owl. Falling glass. Death.” Her voice grew even more hollow. “Death strikes at twelve.” She blinked, her pupils flexing to focus. “What in the world? That’s weird.”

I let out a noisy breath I’d been holding. “You’re not kidding.”

Get it now!

There she’s able to open up through the stories she shares and the sexual experiences she desires. Without anyone knowing who she actually is. It’s perfect. Who needs a man when you have a chest full of toys to satisfy you?

Fate has a different plan when it throws a motorcycle riding tattooed temptation her way. Their chemistry ignites, and they seem to have a lot in common but she’s wary.

Brody Mace, just Mace to his friends needed a change, so on a whim he moved to Kerrville to help out a close friend at her tattoo shop. What he didn’t count on was running into a brunette vixen the moment he hit town. Becca’s shy at first, unlike anyone woman he’s ever met, and for the first time in his life he wants more than one night. He’ll take as many as she’ll give him.

Old Dog, New Trixie

In the Ignition Infantry…
Love comes FAST!
Love comes HARD!
Love comes KINKY!
And, so do these bikers.

Dog has no family left…except for the IGNITION INFANTRY. He has no designs on trying to change that either.Who would have thought that a trip to the local baby supply store would possibly change that?Trixie hadn’t had a picturesque childhood. Left by her mother at the Shady Lady Brothel to be raised by the ladies of the night was quite an interesting way to grow-up. But, they’d done right by her. Hell, they’d done so well that not only had she finished high school early but she’d walked across that college auditorium stage with a degree in her hand by the time she was twenty-three.Now, here she was stocking shelves of diapers and breast pumps when he walked in and flipped her entire world upside down.Dog took a helluva lot more than the few baby gifts he’d purchased for the Isaac and Avery McCoy’s baby that day.Could he really fall for a woman who owns a million pastel teddybears and seems to be obsessed with The Golden Girls?And, could Trixie convince Dog that age is nothing but a number, and that everyone needs a little Sofia, Dorothy, Blanche and Rose in their life?

The Long Shot

Only one woman can make Gavin risk it all for love.
by Kandi Silvers
When did she become so bold?
Regina Perkins played by the rules. She did what was expected of her and lived life between the lines. No one would ever accuse her of taking chances. Being a risk-taker was not in her DNA. But, the first time she saw Gavin Carpenter, all those things went out the window. Dating the father of a student wasn’t strictly forbidden and to Regina’s mind, that meant she had permission.
When did he decide to believe in love again?
Gavin Carpenter spent years shielding his heart from women who weren’t any good for him, or his son Riley. After a betrayal at the hands of his son’s mother, he swore off women, and relationships and was just fine with his life. Until she strolled into his life with her soft smile beguiling eyes. Regina Perkins was the one woman who made him willing to risk it all for one chance to hold her in his arms.

Two Texas brothers, different as night and day.
Three hearts, about to be shattered.
Fatima da Silva—princess and veterinary student—followed
her sister to Texas on business. Tate and Caldwell Verhoven weren’t part of the

sweet, nerdy IT guy, won her heart.
Or did he.
Despite trying her very best, she can’t seem to
keep the guitar-shredding punk rocker Caldwell out of her mind. Plagued by
guilt, she sticks firmly by Tate’s side.
Nothing is ever easy for the Verhoven brothers,
though. Tate has demons too, but it’s a spiteful rival family that causes the
most damage.
And Fatima will be left with a heart-rending
decision.

In Deep

by
Deelylah Mullin
Leona Adieux wandered the streets of the French Quarter wondering what she would do with her life—what her next step would be. As a voodoo practitioner, she found a home in the accepting city. But she still felt unsettled—like something more was out there.
As he safety checked the last diving apparatus of the batch, Alphonse Rousseau wondered when he’d find the help he desperately needed to keep Rousseau Dive, on Bayou Teche, afloat. He couldn’t run it alone, and while he believed in all things supernatural, the odd feeling he had of being watched in the dive shop couldn’t be mere coincidence. Especially after the latest bout of rearranged product in the store. Maybe he should get someone over to check things out.
When Leona met Alphie the first time, she knew there was something special about him. Besides the physical attraction, there was a spiritual one, as well. He connected with her inner witch in a way no man ever had—even La Vendeuse Macabre owner and voodoo queen, Geneve Gabon didn’t reach her in the primal and powerful way Alphie did. But the dark presence in his shop—connected to the property, best she could tell—sets her on edge.
When the sun goes down over the bayou, critters aren’t the only thing stirring.

ARC Review, New Release & Giveaways: BOHEMIA NIGHTS by Lucy Lakestone

Bohemia Nights by Lucy Lakestone

A DELICIOUSLY INDECENT PROPOSAL …

Thea McKay likes her quiet, private life well enough. She creates pop-up paper art that no one ever sees, hangs out with her friends and admires men from afar. But then, at a play premiere, she meets gregarious video blogger Duncan Flyte. An incorrigible charmer with dubious motives, he’s handsome, hilarious and overwhelming. When he says he won’t stop showcasing her to his legions of fans unless she agrees to spend seven nights with him, her world turns upside down. The offer is both outrageous and tempting. Those seven nights don’t have to be passionate, but what if Thea wants them to be? Can she raise the stakes with this adorable Scottish import — especially when Duncan’s cheerful campaign to woo her may be just one more spectacular lie that will break her heart?

This is the fifth novel in the award-winning Bohemia Beach series, each a steamy standalone romance set among a circle of young artists in the enchanting Florida city they call home.

Review By Tamye

Disclosure:  I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my sweet bananas!  I absolutely fell in love with this book and its cast of characters.

While this is the fifth book in the Bohemia Beach series, it was the first book I’ve read in this series, and by this author.  It definitely stands well by itself.  No need to have read the previous four books to understand the story. That being said, I now want to read the first four books because the lead characters from each book were in the fifth book and I’m dying to hear their stories as well.

I glanced at the first paragraph and I was hooked.  I only wanted to see what point of view the book was written in, as I was in the midst of reading something else. But I couldn’t put it down, I had to to read more.  I had to know why Thea McKay thought Duncan Flyte was a ……. nope not saying.  Get the book and see for yourself.  But be warned.  You will be hooked as well.

The story easily comes to life.  Plopping you smack dab in the middle of this exciting set of friends, with a snarky, yet insecure heroine, who has no idea why this sexy Scot would want to have anything to do with her.  Therefore he must be using her for publicity.  Right? Smart guy that he is, Duncan uses Thea’s dislike of being in the public eye to his advantage.  In exchange for her spending seven night with him, Duncan promises to refrain from featuring Thea on his vlog every night during that time.  Then if at the end of the week she still wants him to get lost, he will.  Or course, Duncan is going to do his best to change her mind.  Thus the fun begins.

Thea agrees despite her certainty that Duncan will break her heart. Somehow her mouth said yes, while her head was saying, “No freaking way!”  It could have been her hormones, and she might have a bit of a crush. One she would deny to everyone, including herself.

Kudos to the author for weaving this tale in a such a way, that while being lighthearted and fun, it also had depth, self-discovery, and enough heat at times to light a fire.

I recommend this to anyone who wants a contemporary love story, that goes from “Hell No!” to “Oh Yes!”.  One that will make you yearn for one of your own.

Book Description – Bleeding Hearts by Ash Krafton

Sophie Galen is an advice columnist whose work leaves her neck-deep in other people’s problems. Thanks to her compassion, her gut instinct, and her magnetic charm, Sophie really knows how to attract little black clouds.

Marek Thurzo is no little black cloud; he’s a maelstrom. Marek is Demivampire, a race with the potential to evolve into vampire. A warrior who’s taken his share of spiritual damage, he hovers dangerously close to destruction.

He seeks salvation. She’s driven to save him. But what if he can’t be saved?

Sympathy for his plight becomes true empathy as Sophie’s hidden nature is revealed. Marek suspects she may be one of the Sophia, oracle and redemption of the damned Demivampire. She alone can turn back the evolutionary clock.

All she needs is the courage to face her fears. Can she save him from Falling?

Excerpt from BLEEDING HEARTS Demimonde Book 1 by Ash Krafton

In the great hall housing the Egyptian exhibitions, I immediately noted the change in the atmosphere. The room was cool and dry, its climate controlled to mimic the conditions in which the relics had existed in their native land.

The entire room had been designed to resemble an Old Kingdom temple. The main lights were dimmed while strategically-placed spotlights emphasized massive columns and magnificent wall carvings like sunbeams through temple windows.

I scanned the room. No other tourists. Even better. I meandered, enjoying the rare opportunity to linger.

Craning my neck, I ran my gaze up each of the columns, reading the images, admiring the palm leaves carved at the tops like great stone trees. Eyes toward the ceilings, I turned slowly around, admiring the handiwork of the ancient artists.

What was it like to live in those lands and those times? Could an ancient version of my spirit have been there, stepping barefoot and silently through a sandy temple like this one?

Lost in contemplation, I was completely unprepared for the shock of smacking into someone, bumping him hard enough to lose my balance. I’d have fallen had he not caught my arm. Wide-eyed with consternation, I stammered an apology to the handsome but serious-faced gentleman.

“You are not hurt, I hope?” His voice, deep and smooth, sent shivers marching down my neck, between my shoulders, down my spine.

“I’m okay.” I shook my head, too shy to make direct eye contact, wishing I’d checked my hair and lipstick before coming in. “I’m far too adept at being inept.”

He flashed a grin and I caught a glimpse of nice white teeth. “Temples are places for spiritual reflection. It is forgivable if your vision was turned inward, rather than toward where you were walking.”

His expression softened by amusement, he tilted his head toward the pillars. “Majestic, aren’t they?”

I stole another glance at him—black hair smoothed back into a discreet tail, clear light skin framed by long sideburns, strong jaw culminating in a square, cleft chin. Like the other items in the museum, something about him made me want to look closer, inspect each detail.

A subtle flush warmed my cheeks and ears so I quickly turned back to the heights of the exhibition. Murmuring a sound of agreement, I circled the column, stepping a few feet away so I could see both him and the stone. “Do you visit this museum often?”

Furtive glances allowed me to take in more of his appearance a tiny section at a time. Clothing dark as his hair. Long blazer, something in between a suit coat and an overcoat. In one hand he carried a bound book and fountain pen, as if he’d been making notes.

His gaze was calm and steady and entirely on me. Taking a deep breath I permitted the contact of the direct look. My boldness was well-rewarded. His Paul Newman lips brought to mind the sculptured busts on display in the Greco-Roman Quarters and he wore a stern expression that cast a veil of hardness upon his features, enhancing the impression he’d been carved from marble.

Except for his eyes. The Roman busts bore eyes that were blank and white but this man’s eyes were alive with bright green color. Like gemstones, they glittered and drew my gaze.

“No, actually,” he said. “My first time here. Although, I admit, I’m drawn to places like this.” His voice made music of the words—deep bass notes and soothing rhythm.

“Ah!” I said. “A man after my own heart.” His left eyebrow arched so sharply I thought it might disappear into his hairline and I hurriedly continued. “Are you a professor?”

“No, nothing like that. I do studying of my own, it’s not a living. It’s more of a hobby. Personal research, of sorts.”

“Studying past times is one of my pastimes. It’s my preferred form of entertainment.”

“Mmm.” Eyebrow cocked again, he cast a disapproving look at me and swept his hand around the contrived temple. “Would the gods be pleased to know they are reduced to the level of entertainment?”

“I hope so.” I kept my tone light. Considering the seriousness of his expression, I didn’t want to accidentally insult him. “Otherwise, they’d have to be content with staying dead, right?”

His gaze swept over me and I shivered again as if the touch had been tangible, a brush of fingertips against my cheek.

“Well, I’ll leave you to your worship. I mean, your wanderings.” He gave me a conspirator’s wink. “Unless…”

He hesitated, with a quiet clearing of throat as he tucked his notebook and pen into an inside pocket. “You wouldn’t mind a companion? Sometimes one sees things differently when seeing through another’s eyes. I would appreciate a new perspective.”

I mulled it over, listening to the rain spattering the windows and distant voices echoing faintly from other rooms. Although I’d looked forward to a quiet afternoon, it might be nice to spend it with someone who seemed to share my interests. He certainly was attractive, and his pleasant voice intrigued me.

I realized I’d become used to living inside a shell. This man made me want to step outside for once.

“I’d like that.” I smiled at his pleased expression. “I’m Sophie, by the way.” I stuck out my hand in introduction.

Instead of shaking my hand, he bent his head over it and pressed polite lips to the backs of my fingers. The quaint gesture would have seemed strange and out of place had we been elsewhere. “I am Marek. Pleased to make your acquaintance.”

Fingers tingling from the unexpected kiss, I fought the urge to curtsy. “Well, Marek. Lead me into the past.”

His almost-smile sent a thrill down the back of my neck. “That’s exactly the sort of thing I’d hoped you say. Shall we?”

He turned on his heel and swept out a hand with a slight bow, indicating the archway to another exhibit. For the first time since I’d been coming to this museum, I wondered what I’d see on the other side, and was surprised to realize I wasn’t afraid to find out.

Review By Tamye

⭐⭐⭐⭐ and 1/2⭐
(4.5 stars)

Intense! Page turning! Edge-of-your-seat heart-stopping Suspense!

From the first page to the last I was totally captivated.  This fast paced romantic suspense would not let me put it down.  I had to know what would happen next.

I liked the fact that while Melissa had complete confidence that C.J. Would dome to her rescue she wasn’t willing to rely solely on him and showed some backbone and worked with what, and who was at hand to save themselves when the opportunity presented itself.  As to whether that worked remains to be seen.  (Read the book)

The characters were real, with both flaws and strengths.  I laughed, awwwwwed, and “bawled my eyes out” at one point.  Needless-to-say, this book evoked a gamut of emotions.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves romantic suspense.
Warning:  It can be very graphic in nature at times and is not for the faint-at-heart.

He’s re-invented himself. Now he’s the Premier Danseur and Choreographer at the hottest ballet company in Chicago.

He’s also a premier player. All the dancers know it.

Moving from girl to girl. Bed to bed. No one has ever compelled him to be faithful.

No one has ever felt like home.

His stunning boss and artistic director, Mariette Gallant, bets him he’ll be in love in three months.

The prize if he doesn’t?

A night with Mariette. Max takes the bet-eagerly. This will be an easy win.

Enter Awkward.

Victoria Awkward.

The gorgeous, strawberry blonde ballerina with the unfortunate last name.

She is ANYTHING but Awkward and she can dance and charm as well as he can.

The best way to motivate Max to do something is to forbid him.

Mariette has put Miss Awkward off limits.

All bets are off.

Excerpt

The alarm on Victoria’s cell phone goes off. She’s set it to go off every night at eleven forty-five so she can get home by midnight. Tonight when it sounds, she groans and drops her head to my chest in frustration.

I lift her head with both hands and bring her gaze to mine. “I know you have to go, but before you do, one more lesson from the teacher.” I run a thumb across her soft, full lips and then lower my head to allow my lips to take its place. The kiss is soft and lingering, and just as I believe it to be ending, my awkward girl surprises me and opens her lips ever so slightly to allow me to taste her sweet mouth and tongue fully. She steps back even as she kisses me more.

“Mmm.” She breaks our kiss. “I don’t want to go, but I have to.”

“I understand.” I turn her toward her dance bag and give her a little nudge. The last thing I want to do is have her mother get upset and refuse to let her out at night to rehearse, or worse, tell Mariette.

She slings her bag over her shoulder and blows me a kiss.

I catch it. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Yes, tomorrow. No boxing tonight.”

“Don’t worry, Miss Awkward. I have no desire to box tonight.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 3, 2017
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

Fantabulously fun read.  Which is surprising, since by the end of the first chapter I was thinking, “What the heck!  This guy’s a total jerk!  I agreed to review this, Why?” But I had promised to review the book.  And I believe in sticking with it, and seeing a book through.  Luckily in this case, I was rewarded.  Without the author showing us what a total smuck Max Devereaux is.  We wouldn’t be able to appreciate how much he has to grow to become worthy of winning the prize.  As to what that prize is, you’ll have to read the book to find out what the true prize is.

Even though I couldn’t stand the hero at first, I was pulled in and held captive by the writing itself.  As I shook my head over Max’s caveman like behavior, I eagerly kept turning the pages, waiting eagerly to see how Victoria Awkward would reactive to his antics, and what hoops she would make him crawl through to gain her attention and affection.

All in all.  I came to love the main characters, and enjoyed reading about Max’s journey down the road of love.  There are a few surprises, that give the story a nice twist as well.

I definitely recommend this book to contemporary romance and dance readers and look forward to reading more books by this author.
