An Excerpt from Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply

A couple of hours later, Susan called Pepper. “You are not going to believe this. You have to mate him, Pepper, or I will.”

“What did he do now?” Pepper assumed it was something positive, as excited as Susan sounded.

“He picked up groceries for you! I know I shouldn’t have, but I was curious and I asked to see what he had gotten for you and wow, some of the choicest cuts of steaks, more chocolate mousse pie, everything you’d want for breakfast, and a couple of bottles of wine. He even got you fixings for a lobster bisque he’s going to make. Sounds to me like he’s planning to stay for a while. Which would be a totally good thing, as far as I’m concerned. If he becomes a burden at your place, just send him over to mine. He can bring the groceries too.”

Lobster bisque? No wonder Susan was ready to grab the wolf and mate him.

“Anyway, he declined breakfast and said he’d throw something together at your place.”

Pepper was surprised to hear he had turned down breakfast at Susan’s place. Was he afraid Pepper would view it as Susan making a play for him? If so, he was a lot more intuitive than most guys she knew who, even if they hadn’t wanted anything to do with Susan romantically, would have at least enjoyed a home-cooked breakfast.

“Oh, and he said not to worry. He’d clean up afterward. He asked if you had a Crock-Pot. He said he was going to make his special lobster bisque, but the steaks? Another night maybe? I loaned him my Crock-Pot, in case yours wasn’t easy to find. Please tell me you don’t want him. I’ll let him down gently, and then I’ll do whatever I need to do to claim him.”

Pepper laughed. “Are you sure you could handle him?”

“Seriously? I’d definitely give it a shot. If you don’t want him for a pack leader mate, he’d still be a great addition to the pack—for protection, at the very least—if he were my mate.”

Pepper didn’t believe Eric would be happy as just a follower if he had the opportunity to be a leader. Even if he became a sub-leader, she was afraid that wouldn’t be enough. “He’s a leader at heart.”

“Right. So mate with him so I don’t have to embarrass myself.”

“How would you embarrass yourself?”

“He’s only got eyes for you. And I’d get turned down. You know how it is. A woman is just as hurt by rejection as a man. But I’d feel so much better about it if you caught him. You know we all loved Harold like a brother, but I’ve seen the way Eric is interested in you. And it’s not in the least bit brotherly. With me?” Susan sighed dramatically. “He’s just like Harold was with me. So tell me this business of Eric staying over is becoming a steady habit you don’t want to break.”

“Okay, Susan, part of me says he’s a good bet. That he would be the right one for me and for the pack.”

“Hot—”

“It’s forever you know.”

“Absolutely.”

“Not just for me, but for the whole pack. With Harold, everyone knew him from the time we were children. He was a known quantity. With Eric—”

“Yeah, yeah, so everyone knew Harold would do everything you said he’d do.”

Pepper let out her breath. “Harold didn’t ever want to take charge or suggest anything, even as much as I encouraged him to do so. He just wasn’t a leader. Even when he said he wanted to lead, he didn’t have the personality to make it happen. If I take a new mate, it means change. I won’t control everything with the pack.”

“You don’t think Eric could bring some fresh, new ideas to the pack that would improve things?”

“What if you or others in the pack don’t like his ideas?” What if he turned their whole pack upside down with his different notions?

“We’ll voice our opinion like we always do.”

“What if he doesn’t want to help lead the pack?”

“Fine, then he can just be your hot lover and mate and be part of the pack like the rest of us.”

A hot lover sure had its appeal. And if he could colead without taking over completely, Pepper would sure rethink having a mate. “I’ve got to go, Susan.”

“But you’re seriously considering it, right?”

“I’m…considering it.”

efede-coollogo_com-20005795If you know me at all, you know that I love my paranormal reads.  Terry Spear did not disappoint.

Pepper is the alpha of her pack but the truth is she finds it difficult to trust.  You can’t really blame her.  She is independent (which we don’t always see in were stories), powerful and leader of a pack.  All of those things scream for a male to come in take over, right?  Not.  We see her dealing with a pain in the butt alpha who seems to think she is his for the taking.

When Eric comes around she thinks he is one more that wants to take her pack from her.  However, Eric is different and it doesn’t take long for Pepper to realize it.

Great story that can be read as a standalone!

POST! DANCE WITH MY HEART BY MEDA WHITE

dance with my heart
Synopsis

Traumatized by her past, former police officer Jane Dillon gets a new start in Los Angeles as a bodyguard. If she weren’t so good at saving people, she might seek a new career. At least when she moonlights as a dance teacher, no one shoots at her. One impossible-to-please macho boss, one hunk of manly hot action hero, and one oversized Southern family set her on a course she never saw coming. Former Navy SEAL, Danny Baker, has a lot to deal with between his dad’s health, his sister’s public breakup, and figuring out how to get rid of a female employee without getting a sexual discrimination suit filed against him. He’s always believed it to be his duty to protect women and children, but seeing the beautiful and lethal Jane in action turns his worldview upside down. He’d almost rather go back to the jungle, except the dance floors of L.A. and the woods of Georgia are providing plenty of excitement. If they can overcome their differences, Danny’s family, and Jane’s past, they might find that they make the perfect team. 

Excerpt:

“What about you?” Danny asked. “Who taught you to dance?” “My grandfather, sort of,” Jane said. “He put me in karate and dancing when I started kindergarten. He didn’t know what to do with a little girl. I guess he tried to find balance for me.” “Thanks to him, you can kick my ass and dance circles around me,” he said over his shoulder as he did a merengue step in place, while she literally danced around him. “I’ll have to thank him if I ever meet him.” Before she returned to face him, she flared her fingers as she ran her hand across his back, feeling the taught muscles there. She tore her gaze from the fluid movement of his hips to see his eyes twinkling with laughter. What had he been saying? Oh yeah, Grandfather. Jane didn’t have the heart to tell him her grandfather had passed. Because it reminded her of how alone she was in the world, she didn’t like to think about it.

Review and Giveaway! Owning Violet by Monica Murphy

I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.

Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.

One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

My everything.


I was given a copy of this amazing story in return for my honest review.  Violet was a great character.  She is the one we are told to be like.  She knows the role she is supposed to play and does her hardest to stick to it.  She is is poised, elegant and doesn’t rock the boat.  Until him.

Ryder is the street kid that was pulled from the gutter and has begun to make a success out of his life.  When his mentor makes a bet with him it is the perfect opportunity for him to ruffle the feathers of the woman that has intrigued him since he met her.  Violet is the pinnacle of the untouchable but Ryder knows that he deserves the woman, the job that he craves and the opportunity to showcase his talent.  So he takes the bet.

These two characters are breathtaking in the development of their relationship.  I am so excited to see where this series goes.  Monica Murphy has developed a group of characters that I fell in love with.  The romance in this book is hot and Ryder has hands that can make any woman sing.

BLOG TOUR STOP! TAKEN BY LOVE BY MELISSA FOSTER (@TastyBookTours)

Taken-by-Love-Melissa-FosterCover(30)Blurb

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

Review by Victoria

Taken by Love is the fifteenth book in the Love in Bloom series and the seventh book in The Braden’s series.   While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.

 Daisy Honey left Trusty Colorado to go to college and never planned on returning other than seeing her parents. However, her father got hurt so Daisy returned for what she hoped was temporary to help take care of her father’s farm. Daisy is a gorgeous woman and was gorgeous as a child as well. She fielded rumors left and right, and the local girls always taking cheap shots at her. Daisy has no true reason to stay well that is until she meets Luke Branden.

 Luke Branden is a hot and sexy man. Luke is a local horse breeder and one of the best.  He is the youngest out of all his brothers as well. While Luke wants to settle down he has not found anyone worth his time, well that is until Daisy walked into his life. Daisy has Luke looking back at his childhood and wanting answers to question that have always plagued him. Therefore, Luke goes looking for the answers he seeks.

The chemistry between Luke and Daisy is blistering. It was apparent from the first sight that they had a connection. I enjoyed seeing how both Luke and Daisy tried to fight the attraction and failed. I enjoyed seeing that Luke was not going to force Daisy to stay but let her make the decision that is best for her.

I found this book well written. The main and secondary characters are interesting and engaging.   I loved seeing past characters of the other books make an appearance. Overall, this was a wonderful book. Each book I read by Ms. Foster gets better and better. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

 

Review by CeeCee

 

Foster has the uncanny ability to continuously deliver stories that enchant, entertain, and enthuse!

Daisy and Luke are lovable, as well as relatable. She’s hell bent on the big city, while his roots are firmly planted in Trusty. As these wonderful characters branch out from their comfort zones and get to know each other again, a beautiful story unfolds.

You just can’t go wrong with these novels! They’re easy to read in one sitting, the romance is perfectly timed, and there’s always an update on past characters. If you’re looking for a feel good story with a little drama, and some very sexy men, this is definitely your book! Can’t wait for the next!

When trust issues arise regarding Tate’s behavior, she turns to none other than her beautiful past – the beach god, John Rider who is conveniently available and still waiting.

Review3

Atonement is the second book in the Attainment series by J. H. Cardwell.  Reese Stanford is off to college at Wake Forest.  She is dating Tate and life is good.  Reese and Tate have several bumps as the both grow up and become adults while they are in college.  Tate becomes aggressive when anyone looks at Reese.  Reese has grown up and is more level headed than in the first book. 

Tate is still the hot and sexy man from the first book.  He is also still head over heels in love with Reese.  Tate’s biggest problem is deciding what he wants to do beyond college is it the majors or what and how to fit Reese into it.  Tate also seems to forget to talk to her about what is going on with him and his plans.

John is still around and waiting for Reese to wake up and pick him.  John has it so bad he tries to meddle in Tate and Reese’s lives.  The one thing that John accomplished was pushing them together.  I wonder if John did not meddle as he did, if Tate and Reese would even be together. 

I loved how the book ended.  I fully expected the ending to be much sooner than it was.  I loved that I was kept at the edge of my seat wondering how it was all going to play out.  I found this story to be well written.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  Overall, this was a great story and I cant wait for the next book in the series!

BlurbThere are many ways to capture a person’s love, but unwilling, full attainment is never the best option.
Life hasn’t been easy for 18 year old Reese Stanford. After a traumatic incident a year ago, she has a hard time trusting any guy. She finally allows herself to fall for the heart throb, Tate Justice, only to realize he too comes with his own set of issues.
Swearing off men, she meets a beach ‘god’ who will settle for no less than all of Reese. That is at least, until she learns a truth about Tate that changes the game entirely.

Review3

Attainment is the first book in the Attainment series by J. H. Cardwell.  Reese Stanford is only 18 and yet has had a rough life.  Reese is a sweet and levelheaded young woman.  She is trying to make her way in life in college and in romance.  She learns at a young age how precious life is. Reese is a strong woman to be able to go through what she did and come out whole and not forever broken. 

Tate is a young man who seems to know what he wants in life and is not afraid of his emotions when it comes to Reese. He is a hot and sexy athlete.  I loved how respected her wishes about not having sex until she is married and did not pressure her in the least.  Tate can come across as desperate at times but at his young age, it is not too unrealistic. 

John is a hot and sexy man who fall in love with Reese from the first time he see her.  John is also rich and is more than willing to throw his money around to help win over Reese.  However, while John has some good qualities, he never fully eclipse Tate for Reese. 

The author tackles some tough issues including rape.  I do like how the author handled it.  She showed it affected Reese but did not control it and also brought up that Reese was in therapy.  I was not fond of how the book switched from first person to third person.  I am also not fond of switching from Reese telling the story to different characters telling the story.  The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic.  Overall, this was a good story in spite of the tough issues raised with the book.

When friends become lovers . . .

Firefighter and former Marine Jackson Wilder has tough guy down to an art, but he’s learned the hard way that promises were made to be broken. Abigail Morgan was once his best friend, his first kiss, his first love, his first everything. He’d just forgotten to mention all that to her and she blew out of his life. Five years later, she’s back and he’s battling a load of mistrust for her disappearing act. But for some reason he just can’t keep his lips—or his hands—to himself.

It can lead to disaster or . . .

When her stint as a trophy wife abruptly ends, Abby returns home to Sweet, Texas, and comes face-to-face with Jackson—her biggest and sexiest mistake. Time and distance did nothing to squash her love for the act-first-think-later stubborn hunk of a man, and when he suggests they renew their old just-friends vow, Abby realizes she wants more. She’d cut and run once. Could she do it again? Or could she tempt him enough to break his promise?

BLURB:

Living in a world built on pretenses, Everleigh Wright discovers how carefully orchestrated her Upper East Side life has been. Trapped in an arrangement for social prestige and financial gain, she finds life is not as idyllic as she once thought.

William Ryder leads a life rich in family support and endless determination. While attending university in Manhattan, he becomes enamored with a classic beauty who holds many secrets beneath her quiet propriety. William falls head over heels crazy for her, and she falls for him and his unfaltering optimism and kindness.

 William and Everleigh may come from different worlds, but their attraction is instant and their love undeniable. Hoping love conquers all, they will find out if their love is unstoppable when faced with the consequences of breaking a prior engagement.

 “Right here, right now is all that matters.”

EXCERPT:

She kissed him not caring about how she looked or propriety. She did what she felt and she felt like kissing him twice, so she did.

After lunch, they did a little sightseeing, stopped for frozen custard then headed for the train station. As the train barreled back to Manhattan, Evie turned to William. She felt shy, but wanted a photo of him. “May I take a picture of you?” She knew once again she was crossing a line, but she felt selfish and wanted something just for her.

He chuckled at her formality. “Yes, if you want.”

She took a picture of him looking at her the way she most liked to see him, in like of her. His darkened eyes said more and everything that they both knew it was too early to say and she hoped to hold onto that look forever with the photo.

When the photo loaded onto the screen, she stared at it. She was soft spoken, but he heard her. “You look sexy like this.”

The right side of his mouth lifted into a smile, a bit confident, a tad cocky. He pulled his phone out and flipped through the options. William stopped and smiled at his display. “I think you look really sexy like this.” He turned the phone around for her to see and her mouth dropped open.

“When did you take that?” She tried to act mad, but she thought the picture was funny.

“I like the way you’re about to lick the ice cream, tongue out all greedy-like.” He laughed again when her fist hit his arm. “Okay, okay. I shouldn’t have taken it without you knowing, but I really do think you’re pretty damn sexy eating ice cream. That right there is what fantasies are made of,” he said, pointing at the picture.

“Ewww! Stop it right now. No doing anything dirty while looking at that picture,” she demanded, trying to grab the phone.

He held it out of her reach and continued the joke. “I don’t need this picture. It’s burned into my brain.” He felt her playfully hit his arm again. Grabbing her hand, he eyed her. “No worries. I only have chaste thoughts about you.” He tried to sound convincing by saying that with a straight face.

But her expression changed. “Well, that’s disappointing.”

Putting his arm around her, he squeezed her into his side and laughed. His grin got even bigger when she relaxed into him for the remainder of the ride back to New York.

Luck was something Evie didn’t feel was on her side. She was focusing on more proven methods of destiny, like action.

REVIEW:

Amazing doesn’t begin to describe how awesome of a storyteller this author is.  Everleigh is engaged to a powerfully controlling man named Tom.  Didn’t like him at all but I understand the entanglements that evolve when money and families are involved.  William is heartbreakingly perfect for her in every way and my heart aches at the trials and tribulations in this story. 

I refuse to ruin this story with spoilers and have to say that this needs to be on your TBR list.  If not, you are not a true romance reader.  A lot of stories have a happy ever after, but this is the story that demands that love conquers all.  It succeeds beautifully.
