MY REVIEW of

Lady Archer’s Creed #2

Publisher’s Description:

A determined woman…

Wild and reckless, Lady Georgina Seton has plans for her future. Driven by the pain of past heartbreak, she will do whatever it takes to gain what she wants… and she is determined to control her own destiny. By becoming the best female archer England has ever known she will safeguard her future without the need to marry.

An ambitious man…

Born the spare, Felton Crauford is hell bent to secure his own future by amassing wealth. The mineral vein he discovered promises to be a boon, but there is one problem…the deposit runs into a neighboring estate. To his fury, the hoyden next door does whatever she can to get in his way. All while presenting a temptation he cannot ignore.

Felton and Georgina are caught up in an unstoppable yearning that threatens to destroy both of their plans. Worse, they are powerless to stop the white-hot desire blazing between them. Georgina must place her wager: Open her heart once more or risk losing everything.

My Thoughts:

This is book two of the Lady Archers Creed series and like book one it is a novella length story.

Georgina is a Duke’s daughter and the only one of the friends who met and bonded through their attraction to the sport of archery. They met while in school and Georgina is the only one of the young ladies who actually has money at her disposal. That is until her father cuts off her access to funds due to her stepmother.

I liked this short read and finished it quickly.

I gave it 3.75 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization. I would have liked this story to have delved deeper into Georgina’s relationship with Felton. The relationship seems unfounded and why does he call her Lady Bug?

This is a sweet clean historical with no real sensuality.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have voluntarily read and reviewed.

WHEN THE BEAST WITH A HEART OF GOLD

Everything changed for Jasper Benedict, the Earl of Ailesbury, the night his family died in a tragic fire–the same fire that left him disfigured. Now, his scars have given him the name the Beast of Faversham. But when he stumbles upon a damaged carriage during a tempest, the beautiful woman inside reminds him of the man he wishes he could be: free of his past, and able to love.

TAMES A BEAUTY WITH A WICKED PAST

When her carriage breaks down outside Faversham Abbey, this is just the most recent in a long series of misadventures for Miss Adeline Price. Her beauty hides a fatal flaw: she’s quick to judge, and rarely looks beneath the surface. But the longer she’s around Jasper, the more she begins to want to be better–someone deserving of him.

But when it comes time to reunite Adeline with her family in London, will Jasper believe that she sees not his scars, but the good, honorable man he is?

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, comes a new Romantic Comedy.

Henry Walton has been called many things throughout his life—fatty, bathtub, tree trunk, moose, walrus, lardo—you name it. But at over six foot five and weighing two hundred and eighty pounds, Henry is now solid muscle and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment he’s been waiting for: fame, money, women, and glory. Okay, there’s also a ten-million-dollar contract in it for him.

There’s just one teeny tiny problem: He can’t quite get over being dumped by the coldhearted shrew with thick glasses and a genius IQ he dated for a mere few weeks. Elle.

God, he so hates her and that stupid little squeaky laugh—a laugh that sounds like music to his ears and sweet, sweet victory to his career. Because for those two perfect weeks, his game was perfect. And now that she refuses to talk to him, everything is falling down the crapper.

Call him superstitious, but he’s got to get her back. Even if she’s the last girl he really wants and she hates his guts.

He’s the hot quarterback all the girls want.
She’s the smart girl he loves to pick on.
And now that they’re all grown up, things are about to get geekin’ ugly…

My name is Tass. I’m smart, I’m driven, and I am determined not to let prankster Hunter Johnson continue raining on my parade. When we were little, he’d pull my hair and call me names. When we were teenagers, he’d throw food and tease me for being a flat-chested virgin.

But now that we’ve ended up at the same college, he’s out of his hot head if he thinks he can keep messing with my life. It’s like he’s fixated on me or something. Well, guess what, Mr. Amazefootball? I’m not that geeky little girl anymore and you do not screw with a smart woman.

So what’s my plan?
It’s definitely wild, and he’s about to find out…

Publication Date: August 22, 2017

Lake Union Publishing

E-Book Currently $1.99

Available For Pre-Order in E-Book at:

Publisher’s Description:

Nina McCarrick has it all: a loving husband, two beautiful boys, a well-appointed home and more time than she knows what to do with. Life is perfect. Until her husband, Finn, is killed in a car accident and everything Nina thought she could rely on unravels.

Alone, bereft and faced with a mountain of debt, Nina’s life of luxury quickly disappears and she begins to question whether she ever really knew the man she married. Forced to move out of her family home, Nina returns to the rundown Southampton council estate—and the sister—she thought she had left far behind.

But Nina can’t let herself be overwhelmed—her boys need her. To save them, and herself, she will have to do what her husband discouraged for so long: pursue a career of her own. Torn between the life she thought she knew and the reality she now faces, Nina finally must learn what it means to take control of her life.

Stirring and empowering, this novel from bestselling author Amanda Prowse once again plumbs the depths of human experience in this tale of one woman’s loss and love.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have read by this author. Like the other one this book often brought tears to my eyes.

Nina is a cosseted protected wife with two sons, one ten year old and one young teenager.

Suddenly she finds herself a widow with nearly nothing. Her husband has hidden the state of their finances from her and she and her sons are now without a home.

Where will they go and how will they survive thrust into virtual poverty? She hasn’t held a job in years and has only a small stash of cash that hasn’t been taken away.

I couldn’t put this book down. This well written poignant story is both sad and inspiring.

I gave this story 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and character development.

I received a complimentary copy via NetGalley from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

From a secret duo of USA Today Bestselling Authors, comes the first COMPLETE STANDALONE in the Modern Love Series.

Who knew sleeping with the enemy could be this fun?

Was the one night stand a good idea?

Well, no. Probably not in retrospect.

In my defense I had just moved back into my grandparent’s house, I’d lost my dream job, and a guy on Tinder had stood me up. It was like life had suddenly stamped ‘LOSER’ on my forehead.

So when the guy behind the bar started giving me THE look…you know, the one that promised I’d be screaming his name into the wee hours of the morning? When that guy also has the perfect amount of scruff on his chiseled chin, biceps bulging out of his t-shirt, and a cocky grin you knew he’d earned in the sack…when he gives you that look, you don’t bother to figure out what your six degrees of separation are. You jump on that horse and ride it!

Pun fully and completely intended. And accurate by the way.

I fully admit to feeling sorry for myself and acting impulsively, but by the time I’d figured out WHO the bartender was, I was already falling for him.

A Sexy Romantic Comedy Standalone.

SYNOPSIS:

Sean McMillan has always lived a life more human than shifter. Upon joining Alpha Squad he is thrust into a whole new world which is taking some getting used to. When two shifters turn up dead under suspicious circumstances in the otherwise quiet town of Inverness, Scotland, Alpha Squad is sent in to uncover the truth. So far, so easy; murder investigations are what Sean does best. Trouble is, one of the witnesses is able to distract him just with her presence. And he can’t shake the feeling that she knows more than what she’s letting on.

Lab assistant Erin Reid thought her work at the research project led by leading Geneticist Professor Blake was benign enough, if excruciatingly boring. Little did she know that they were all embroiled in a deadly conspiracy. When she finds out what she’s been involved in, the resulting guilt weighs heavy on her and she vows to make things right.

What starts off as an ordinary murder investigation quickly turns into something bigger and more dangerous than anyone on Alpha Squad could foresee. Is shifter enemy No. 1 Victor Domnall back with a plan more devious than ever? Can Sean and the squad put all the pieces of the puzzle together before it’s too late?

E-Book Available for Purchase at:

Amazon | iBooks | Nook | Google Play | Kobo

SYNOPSIS:

In the face of danger, the thin line between love and hate is blurred and rules are broken. But are these two prepared to face the consequences?

Dr. Kate Wheeler is an independent, feisty emergency medicine doctor with a perfect life, or at least that’s what everyone sees from the outside. Her world is turned upside down when she is forced to allow twenty-four-seven protection, disrupting her independent lifestyle leaving Kate to adjust, or not. She finds herself in uncharted territory as she balances a new love interest at work, never being alone and dodging multiple attempts on her life. If it weren’t for her two best friends by her side the stress would be too much, even for her to handle.

Her newly assigned security detail, Casey Weston, is harsh, dismissive, and overbearing. His sexy, strong body and bad boy tattoos are just the exterior to this thoughtful man who has secrets of his own. As he works to keep Kate at arm’s length he finds himself equally frustrated and fascinated by this woman who pushes his boundaries. Weston’s rules are intense and focused solely on keeping her alive. But as time goes on will his better judgement falter?

Tempers and emotions flare when these two headstrong individuals go head to head, both used to having their own way and unwilling…or too afraid…to give an inch.

With Kate’s life in the crosshairs and Weston determined to protect her, will their future be happily ever after or torn apart by the same threat that brought them together.

About Kennedy L. Mitchell

kennedyI live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony).

Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel.

When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”).

My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.

My Review of

Lady and the Wolf

A Re-Telling of Little Red Riding Hood

Tangled Tales Series Book 1

by Elizabeth Rose

Buy E-Book Now For $0.99 at:

Publisher’s Description:

Tangled Tales Series, Book 1
(A twisted, tangled, romantic retelling of the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.)

Lord Hugh de Bar, known as Wolf, has been cursed and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. He vows to kill the man responsible for his torture, Earl Roland Chaserton of Tavistock, but the man has avoided this confrontation by staying locked away in his castle in hiding. But when the man’s granddaughter appears in the woods alone at night, Wolf realizes he can take her captive to lure the earl out of hiding so he can kill him. However, he needs to proceed with caution since the girl is armed with a crossbow and skilled at killing wolves – and also very alluring.

Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton has defied her grandfather’s orders and sneaked out of the castle to investigate a mysterious hidden door in a knoll that she’s seen on one of the hunting trips with her grandfather’s knights. Alone in the dark and without an escort, she has only her crossbow to protect her. But when she feels she’s being followed by a wolf, the handsome lord of Babeny appears to protect her instead. She is intrigued by the presence of Lord Hugh de Bar, and lets down her guard. However, things aren’t always as they seem, and when she’s taken captive by him she realizes there is more to this dark lord than meets the surface. He says he despises her for killing wolves and being the granddaughter of his archenemy, yet his eyes tell her a different story. His gaze devours her – and she feels like he wants to eat her.

Will magical forces come between a lady and a wolf, or bring them together instead? And will the de Bar family finally find redemption from the dark magic that has been bestowed upon each of the siblings and brought turmoil into their lives?

My Thoughts:

Who doesn’t love fairytales and this adult twist of Little Red Ridinghood is a well written version of this tale filled with fantasy and magic.
A much loved fairytale has been morphed into an adulthood version but still keeps the flavor we have all come to love.

Wolf is our hero instead of the villain in this retelling. The villain in this case is a witch who has cursed his family turning his twin brother into a wolf, full-time and himself into a shape shifter who turns from human to wolf.
Will our heroine find it in her heart to not kill the wolves? Will she discover the mysterious secrets behind this man/wolf she has come to love?
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames.
I purchased this title via Amazon in 2016 and read it. I remembered it when the author offered me a complimentary digital copy to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have re-read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

At the age of five and twenty, confirmed spinster Isabella Peregrine is given an unexpected ultimatum by her new step-mother: find a husband or I’ll find one for you.
Thoroughly in a tizz, Isabella proposes a marriage of convenience to the nearest male to her – who just so happens to be the brooding, intimidating Duke of Blackmore. When he rebuffs her clumsy advances, Isabella leaves for London, determined to find the man of her dreams and soothe her bruised ego.

Michael Linfield, Duke of Blackmore is a legendary, fearsome, war hero; famous for reducing debutantes and their mothers to floods of tears with just one glance. The brooding, giant of a man is hiding a secret however – a debilitating stammer that has haunted him since childhood. When the delightful Miss Peregrine proposes a marriage of convenience to him – with no benefits – Michael is so startled that his stammer reappears and all he can manage to reply is “N-n-no”.
When news of Isabella’s success in London soon reaches his ears, Michael is determined to go to town and win her as his own, if only she’ll give him a second chance at love.

This sweet and clean Regency Romance is a stand alone novel with a guaranteed HEA.

Amazon #1 New Release in British & Irish Literature

Publisher’s Description:

Would my lady care to dance?”
“My lady would rather eat a live chicken.”

Beautiful, titled, and wealthy to boot, Lady Lydia Beaufort was expected to have a spectacular London Season. There was just one problem; the eccentric daughter of the Earl of Galway had no intention of becoming the ton’s darling. Especially if it involved humouring the awful herds of fortune hunters and greedy second sons, intent on making her their bride.
All Lydia wanted was to be left alone in peace, to read her beloved Lord Byron. That is until an incorrigible rogue of a Marquess burst into her life, and turned all her ideas about love upside down.
Charming, congenial, and ever so handsome, Gabriel Livingstone, Marquess of Sutherland could have his pick of any of the season’s debutantes, but the only rose he longed to pluck, was the very thorny Lady Beaufort. Just when he thinks he might finally have won her heart, fate, in the form of an Italian Count, a mischievous Gypsy and a political assassination plot, gets in his way.
Can the mismatched pair find their way through all the obstacles life, and London have to offer, to find love?
Read this final installment of the Regency Black Heart Series to find out…

*This is the third book in the Regency Black Hearts Series but can be read as a standalone novel. It is a clean, friends to lovers themed romance, that will bring a smile to your face – and perhaps a tear or two.*

PUBLISHER’S DESCRIPTION:

She might be the one fire he can’t put out…

Caitlin Tyler doesn’t do bridges—she just doesn’t know it until she lands her dream job and freezes halfway across her new town’s towering death span. Cue the cocky, infuriating fireman who goads her off the bridge. He’s hot, but he’s also exactly the kind of guy she wants to avoid…which she manages to do for a whole four hours.

Lt. Shane Hendricks is only two weeks away from leaving Dry Rock. He sure as hell doesn’t need to get involved with a woman he has to rescue twice in one day. The fact that she’s clearly annoyed by him doesn’t deter him from throwing down a challenge—one that proves hard to resist for all the wrong reasons.

They’re moving in different directions. Leaving should be easy, but falling for Caitlin might be the one fire he can’t put out…

Crimson Cloak Publishing

Sometimes you land a great job, meet your soulmate and live happily ever after—nothing else required. This isn’t one of those times.

Annie Caslo is a successful, young doctor, but when she begins rethinking the career choices she’s made, she makes a decision to find a way to stay focused and achieve her true ambitions – that is until fate steps in and she is thunderstruck by Colt Ballard. He’s six foot three inches of heart-stopping hotness, an adept, roguish soccer star and also one of her interns. But he’s a player – on and off the field – and Annie has better things to do. Still, the combustible chemistry between them is impossible to resist – Colt brings out feelings she never knew existed and Annie’s swept off her reluctant feet.

When she continues to second-guess her life choices, opportunities and obstacles begin piling up higher than the greasy Mexican food stacks she hates to admit loving. While in a state of emotional turmoil, she gets a celestial visit from a hunky, Hollywood heartthrob, lookalike, who claims to be her guardian angel. He takes her on a magical road trip to self-discovery with the help of several, dearly departed film icons.

Drawn into the excitement of a life she’s always dreamed of, this new life threatens to shatter the LIFE and love she already has—unless her quirky angel can help her find a way to have it all.

When she’s not juggling work responsibilities and writing, she enjoys swimming, knitting and hiking the beautiful hills and woods around her home and spending time with her family.

MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of

The Wolf of Kisimul Castle

482990504Publication Date: August 14th, 2017

Highland Isles Book #3

by Heather McCollum

$0.99 in Digital Format at:

Publisher’s Description:

Mairi Maclean is kidnapped on her wedding day by the enemy of her dead husband. Taken north to the water-surrounded Kisimul Castle, she is held captive in the name of retribution. But The Wolf of Kisimul Castle soon learns Mairi is not a docile pawn in this game of war between neighboring Scots. Nor will she be frightened into walking down the aisle to wed the fierce Highland chief.

Alec MacNeil is set on revenge. When he finds his enemy dead, he takes his wife to replace the one that was murdered. An eye for an eye. A bride for a bride. But Mairi is more tiger than kitten and refuses to bend to his will. Set stubbornly against one another, the passion that flares between them threatens to tear Alec’s strategy to shreds.

My Thoughts:

A bride who is abducted on her wedding day, a laird bent on revenge, children who know nothing of a loving parent, this is only the start of this well written if convoluted tale by Heather McCollum.
Alec McNeil knows nothing about the care and nurturing of his children so he needs a wife to accomplish what he can not. His soon to be bride has been killed by his enemy so he will avenge her murder. An eye for an eye so to speak. So when he finds that enemy dead he abducts the man’s wife.
Mairi was wed to that enemy and has been promised to the new laird, even though the match is not to her liking. She is abducted on her wedding day by a neighboring laird and ensconced in his dungeon when she refuses to do his bidding and marry him. His children have been assigned to her care and due to their lack of supervision they soon have the dungeon cell looking like a luxurious bed chamber instead of the dank cell Alec assumes she is in.
Will these two enemies come to an understanding and will that lead to love?
I enjoyed this read. Particularly the characterization of the two children. This story would not be the same without their inclusion.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a high sensual rating of 4.5 of 5.0 flames.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title via NetGalley from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Ava Sutton is on the run from a dangerous man and makes her way safely to Scotland. Masquerading as a titled, English lady, she must convince the darkly handsome chief of the Macleans of Aros to wed her before she is tracked down.

Tor Maclean, the new chief of Aros Castle, has sworn off marriage. Despite his efforts to scare away the Englishwoman his father arranged for him to wed, Tor is nonetheless drawn to her passion and beauty. But he doesn’t know if he can forgive the untruths that have come to light for a chance at a once in a lifetime love…

My Thoughts:

Although I had not previously read any titles by Heather McCollum I have yet to find a book presented by Entangled Publishing that I haven’t at least liked and most of the time loved the read.

As I said this is my first time reading this particular author but I wasn’t at all disappointed in the quality of the read. I love a good Highland story and this one most assuredly qualifies. I will be on the lookout for additional titles as well as more in this new series by this author.

I was not however in love with the character of our heroine. She just puts on too many airs and seem pretentious to the extreme. Come on, who does this sort of thing when supposedly running for one’s life even if it is to save her own life as well as that of her friend.

Our hero on the other hand drew me in from the first. I know his actions are not always perceived as noble but he does have the right to feel that there was some deception and betrayal on our heroine’s part.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for character development and storyline and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5 flames.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley from the publisher to read and give a voluntary review. This in no way altered or affected my opinion of this title.

Doggy Style

by Alana Albertson

Publication Date: October 3, 2017

Preorder: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Google Play

When it comes to doggy style, he’s behind you 100%.

Preston Evans is a legend in and out of the bedroom. He’s six foot two, gorgeous, and famous because his celebrity ex snapchatted his huge package. I hate him. I hate his stupid puppy store, Doggy Style. I hate the way he looks at me like I’m a piece of meat. I don’t care that his abs are chiseled, his arms are tattooed, and his face belongs on the cover of a magazine. Every dog bred means a shelter dog dead!

I chain myself to his store in protest, but instead of calling the cops, he throws me a bone.

If I spend one week with him in Hawaii pretending to be his fiancée to snag an investor, he will transform his store into a shelter dog adoption center, saving thousands of dogs’ lives.

One week and I never have to see this sexy, dirty-talking jerk again. How hard can he, uh I mean it, be?

Sex is off the table. So why do I want him to bend me over it?

Young and innocent Raven Gables was strictly off limits, a fact Creed Lyons made sure to remind every surrounding male—including himself. Keeping her at arm’s length Creed was content to watch the young beauty from afar, but cruel fate always found a way to laugh in his face.

From the moment Creed arrived to rescue her, Raven knew the taciturn soldier covered in tattoos would change her life forever. Over the years he had become more than just a proxy “uncle” in her eyes, he was the dark-eyed man that haunted her dreams. The question was, would Creed ever see more than just a tragically orphaned schoolgirl?

Like family, it was his job now to care and look after her, but God help him he wasn’t prepared for this type of hell. There was only so much a man could take staring back at wide innocent eyes that begged the predator inside to devour her.

About Stacy Reid:

stacy-reid

I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. From an early age, I started writing short stories for pleasure. I knew the dozens of romance novels I devoured were onto something when I met my husband at fifteen and fell in love after a week!

Life got in the way and I stopped writing for years. Then at the age of twenty-six with a degree in Human Resource Management, I decided to focus on my passion—writing. I especially love romance and adore writing sensually hot paranormal fantasy, historical and contemporary stories.

I live a lot in the worlds I create and I actively speak to my characters (out loud). I have a warrior way “never give up on my dream.” When I am not writing, I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from Walking Dead, watching Japanese Anime and playing video games with my love—Dusean.
