Some mistakes from the past haunt us forever… unless fate steps in with a second chance.

One ‘Dear John’ letter haunted Bobby Baker’s every living moment. It was the letter he’d stupidly written to his high school sweetheart, Belle, right after he had left to join the Army. The letter in which he’d told her that he wasn’t so sure they were ready for forever yet. Before he could let her know that the letter, and his second thoughts, were nothing more than a mistake, she disappeared from the small Georgia town they had both been raised in.

Fifteen years after the letter, Belle unknowingly walked back into Bobby’s life when her job as an ATF Agent forced her to work with a group of men secretly headed by the CIA to help her track down whoever was involved in funneling black market weapons to a drug cartel in Mexico.

Kaden Cross had it all: money, fame, and women, but he lost it all in one night. One night that would forever change him. Forced from obscurity and into the limelight as the lead singer of the band Mouth2Mouth, Kaden returns to the lifestyle that almost destroyed him. The last thing he wanted was to find a sexy drugged out redhead waiting for him in his bed. Finding out that she’s the victim of a sex slave ring, puts Mouth2Mouth in peril, because the only way to save the woman he’s started to love, means denying her the one thing she wants the most. Freedom.

Sawyer has had one dream her whole life, to escape the smothering love of her mother and a life of poverty. Her goal was just within her grasp when her world is turned upside down. Kidnapped and drugged, she is given to a man she knows nothing about except that he holds her life in his hands.

One night, and two lost souls with tainted lives, find a love strong enough to reveal a secret that just might kill them all.

“Did I give you permission to touch me?” This time it was Sawyer throwing his words back in his face.

Kaden gave a low, seductive laugh. “Did that make you angry, Sawyer? I didn’t mean to make you angry. Which do you appreciate more: something easily given, or something you have to ask for, something you crave?”

“I didn’t notice that woman sitting next to you last night asking to touch you.”

He shrugged nonchalantly. “Did you see me touch her back?”

Sawyer had to admit to herself that she hadn’t seen him touch the woman back.

“Do you want to know if I fucked her last night, Sawyer?” Kaden asked, leaning down to whisper his question in her ear.

Sawyer trembled under his seductive spell. She had never been so intensely pursued by a man before. She’d had several that had flirted with her—even Rick when he had been luring her into his sick web of lies had made her feel wanted—but she had always been aware that he would forget about her five minutes after leaving the restaurant. She had eventually agreed to go out with him because he had discovered her desire to eat at one of the finer restaurants in town whose chef had recently won a prestigious cooking award.

“N—no, I don’t, Kaden. I—I don’t care who you fuck,” Sawyer lied to both of them.

“I didn’t. I believe Alana ended up in Sin’s bed after he finished with Megan.”

“How benevolent of him to share himself around,” Sawyer said, disgusted.

“I believe that’s what he thinks. I, on the other hand, have learned that quality is much more exciting than quantity, so I spent my night taking cold showers and jerking off, thinking about you.”

I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always loved to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent at work and I write during the nights and weekends. I have two children who both graduate next year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently, I am writing three series of books- The Last Riders that is fairly popular, The Dark Souls series, which is not, and The VIP Room, which we will soon see. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose – the enjoyment others find in them and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas (hopefully be next summer). Right now, I am typing away on Shade’s and Lily’s story and the beautiful Kentucky winter weather.

After her car breaks down, Beth Kennedy is forced to stay in Florida, the target of Hurricane Sabrina. She stocks up supplies, boards up windows, and hunkers down to wait out the storm, but her plan unravels when she witnesses a car accident. Risking her life, she braves the winds to save the driver. Just when she believes they are safe, she finds out the man she saved could possibly be more dangerous than the severe weather.


Donovan Goldwyn only wanted to hide from the police, but the hurricane shoved his car into a tree. Now he’s trapped with a beautiful woman while the evidence that can prove his innocence to a brutal crime is out there for anyone to find.


As Hurricane Sabrina wreaks havoc, Beth has no other choice but to trust Donovan to stay alive. But will she survive, or will she become another hurricane crime?






On the television set, which was fighting to stay alive, was breaking news. She caught bits and pieces of it as she emptied the bowl of blood-tainted water and threw out the cloth. It was about a high-speed chase that had occurred about a half-hour ago. Beth shook her head. Apparently, Donovan wasn’t the only idiot driving around during a hurricane.


She went back into the living room and began replacing all the medical supplies into the first-aid kit. Behind her, a reporter was explaining that the driver of the car was believed to be a murder suspect.


“The name of the—”


The lights flashed, prompting Beth to snatch up her flashlight.


“Donovan Goldwyn.”


Her fingers went cold around the plastic tube as ice frosted her veins. She straightened her spine and turned stiffly to the television, her heart wasn’t beating in her chest. On the screen was the picture of the man who was right now changing in her bedroom. Above it was a caption in bold letters that read—SUSPECT.


She gripped the flashlight in her frozen fingers. Her heart thudded fearfully. She stared into the immobilized violet eyes through the glass.


“Oh my god,” she gasped.


She had brought a murderer into her home!



Chrys Fey is the author of the short stories—The Summer Bride and Fallen. She created the blog Write with Fey to offer aspiring writers advice and inspiration. She lives in Florida where she is ready to battle the next hurricane that comes her way.

I turn to face him; he puts his other arm around me. We are in the same position as before when the last kiss attempt failed. My arms are tight around his neck, his arms around my waist. I look down. He lifts up my chin so I’m lost in his gaze. His hand goes back to my waist. He swallows; I think he’s as nervous as I am. He tilts his head and leans in … I back away quickly.

“What’s wrong?” he asks, looking hurt.

“Oh, no, it’s not you. I think … I might have garlic breath.”

He laughs and pulls me back to him. “So do I.” He pulls me in tighter, and before I know what’s happening, his lips are on mine. I give in and surrender to him completely.

This feels like one of my fantasies, only way, way better. He holds me tight as one hand moves from my waist to caress my cheek, kissing me softly but sensually. My hands move to the back of his head, and I grab a lock of hair in each hand. He moves our bodies so that I’m against the railing at the edge of the deck. He moves his hand from my waist to hold the rail as I still grasp his hair. The kissing becomes feverishly passionate; his tongue against mine as they intertwine with each other. Our breathing becomes faster and erratic. Our kissing becomes more intimate. We are in perfect sync with each other. I pull him closer to me, our whole bodies touching. My heart is pounding fast and hard. His hand moves from my face to the back of my head, pulling me tight. He moves my hair from the side of my neck, breaks our kiss and kisses my neck slowly and seductively. I sigh and breathe in a stuttering motion. I open my eyes to see the waitress standing there, gawking at us. I stiffen as I see her. He pulls back and looks at me. With my eyes, I gesture toward the waitress. He turns, looks, and lets out a little huff. He leans in towards me.

“Now that’s a first kiss,” he whispers as he grabs my hand and leads me over to the table. I can’t help but smile.

       My nerves start to get the better of me, I start to feel nauseous; those darn pesky butterflies attack again. I’m not sure why I’m nervous, whether it’s the shoes making me unstable or whether it’s the memory of our first date, our first touch, or our first kiss that’s making me bashful.
       I turn the corner to see him standing there with a bunch of red roses, in the suit that he changed into earlier, this time with a baby pink tie on. Behind him is that gorgeous waterfall cascading down the cliff with the lush greenery surrounding us. As I take a step closer, I hear music playing. “Thank You for Loving Me” by Bon Jovi. It’s our song. I feel my eyes welling up as all the emotion and love I feel for this man is becoming too much to bear.
       His smile is beaming from ear to ear when I approach. Finally I reach him. He holds out his hand for me to take. I take it, and he pulls me into a tight embrace.
       “This is perfect,” I whisper.
       “Perfection for perfection, my love.” He kisses my cheek, and places the bouquet of flowers on the railing.

REVIEW!! Confessions of A Sex Demon (The Sex Demon Trilogy) By Jaye Shields (@JayeShieldS, @TastyBookTours)


Excerpt from Amazon:

Zahra proves that sex demons do it better as she goes from captive to captivator.

Sex Demon Zahra Aniron is a closet romantic. Too bad she spends her time having hot, kinky sex with paying strangers. But she needs the money to pay off her sister’s debt to wizard thugs. There could be worse things than getting paid for pleasure, especially since a sex demon needs climax to survive.

As a blacksmith, Lennox Aegros puts his fury to good use pounding steel into swords. When he arrives at a new town, his real cause for being there isn’t to sell weaponry, it’s for revenge. When he finds the succubus he’s been searching for, her beauty means he can mix business with pleasure. But the joke’s on Lennox, because as he succeeds in torturing his victim by repeatedly bringing her to the brink of orgasm and then denying her the release that she so desperately needs, he realizes that Zahra’s slow demise means the breaking of a heart he didn’t think he had.

I fell in love with this story!  Zahra is an amazing woman who is putting family before her own desires.  I know that she needs to climax in order to survive but she is not the type that wants to be a whore but is using what she needs to save her sister.  I can respect that.

Lennox is hellbent on revenge against Reza for stealing Emmerie and the best way he knows how is to kidnap and brutalize Zahra.  However, that is not the type of man that Lennox has always been.  As he tortures Zahra by withholding pleasure, he realizes that there is more to the beautiful succubus then what he believed.

Passion, regret, family, love and honor are all wrapped up into these two tantalizing characters.  Jaye Shields has an amazing story on her hands and the talent to share it with the rest of us!

AUTHOR INTERVIEW AND REVIEW!! Her Perfect Match By Jess Michaels

Excerpt from Amazon:

She will do anything for him…except surrender.

Mistress Matchmaker, Book 3

Vivien Manning, the notorious Mistress Matchmaker, is tired. Tired of the parties, tired of the lovers, tired of being her. Yet she can’t simply leave London. Not until she learns the fate of the young courtesan she matched with Lord Fincambe, whose drunken, violent tendencies are now aimed at Vivien herself.

As Fincambe’s threats intensify, Vivien is forced to turn to the one loose end she has never been able to tie up. Former lover, Benedict Greystone—the only man she couldn’t control with a smile or twitch of her hips.

When Benedict learns Vivien’s predicament, all the hollow reasons she gave for breaking it off melt away. He will not see her harmed, but his help comes with a price. She will come to his bed, where he plans to show her all the reasons they belong together.

Their rekindled passion is a firestorm of heat and need—but it may not be powerful enough to overcome Lord Fincambe’s determination to have Vivien for his own. Even if someone must die.


I am so excited to have Jess Michaels with us today for an author interview! 

Brandy, Romancebookworm: (Brandy)  Jess, thank you so much for being on Romancebookworms’s Reviews today!  I have to tell you that I love the idea of the Mistress Matchmaker.  How did you come up with this idea for a series?

Jess Michaels, Author: (Jess)  The series really stemmed from the character of Vivien Manning, the Mistress Matchmaker. I really wanted to write a story where a notorious matchmaker for gentlemen and their lovers met her own match, but I wanted to build that up to let readers see her in action and get to know her. So then it became creating the kind of women she would match for. One is the utter innocent (An Introduction to Pleasure) and one is the jaded mistress (For Desire Alone). It’s been a hoot to write the books and see how positive the response has been to them.

Brandy:  A Perfect Match is your third book in this series.  How excited are you for the release of this book?

Jess:  It’s been bittersweet, really. I’m sad to see the series end, but I’m excited to see how readers like Vivien’s story and also to start moving forward with my next series, which I’m writing right now.

Brandy:  I know you write several different types of books.  Do you have a particular genre that you love to read or are you open to anything? 

Jess:  I am very open to anything. I wish I had time to read more romance, but I try not to read it when I’m writing it and it seems like I’ve been writing a lot of it lately, so I’m shut out a bit. But I do love lots of genres and writers.

Brandy:  I saw on your website that you make jewelry and I checked out the store.  I love the superhero pendants.  What pushed you into designing this type of jewelry?

Jess:  I do it as a fun hobby really and when I realized I had a ton of necklaces, I figured I’d start up the etsy store. It’s just another avenue for creativity for me and I really enjoy making the necklaces.

Brandy:  One of my favorite questions to ask in my author interviews is to tell us three interesting things about yourself that might not be common knowledge.

Jess:  I’m a pretty open book, I’m not sure there’s a lot people don’t know that I would be comfortable letting them know. LOL Um, okay I’ll try. 1. I’m a nosy neighbor. My desk faces the window and I love to people watch out neighbors and call out neighbor updates to my husband, whose office is across the hall from mine. 2. I’m trying to walk 10,000 steps every day. I got a pedometer for Christmas and have been making the effort to walk more and get out more. 3. I have 3 tattoos. Two are writing-related (one for my first book, one for my 10th book). The other is my favorite and more personal.

Brandy:  I have to admit, I started laughing when you said nosy neighbor.  Now I have this mental image of you yelling to your husband, “The neighbors just had a new baby!  They bought diapers at Costco.”  I am one of those as well so we are in good company!  🙂 You said on your website that your husband encouraged you to follow your dream of writing.  Had you done any writing prior to that?

Jess:  Oh yes, I wrote in school and wrote my first book in college. But he was the one who pushed me to pursue it as a career.

Brandy:  My husband is that way as well.  I am working on my first book and he is the one that keeps encouraging me.  What is the best thing about being a published author?

Jess:  Probably getting to interact with readers. It’s really very special to know that someone has read what you spent hours, weeks, months crafting. And then liked it!

Brandy:  As a fan, I can tell you the best thing in the world is interacting with your favorite authors.  It is an amazing experience for us as well!  What is the worst thing about being a published author?

Jess:  How little control we have over the success of our work. When a book doesn’t do as well as I feel it should, it feels like a personal failure to me.

 Brandy:  I can understand that.  An Indie author told me that it was like watching her child fail at a sport and feeling like it is your fault that it wasn’t better.  Any thoughts or advice you would like to give to aspiring authors out there?

Jess:  Write a book. Then write another book. Edit the books as best you can. Keep learning your craft. Don’t be in such a rush to “publish” that you forget to make a good story as great as it can be. You learn by writing, so keep writing.

Thank you, Jess for being here with us today and we are grateful to you for taking the time out for an interview! 


I am never disappointed in a Jess Michaels story!  I was given this story by the author in return for an honest review.  I am not compensated for my opinion.

This is the third and final chapter in the Mistress Matchmakers series.  Vivien is a strong, powerful woman who lives life on her own terms.  Being the mistress of powerful men, as set her finances where they need to be.  Her life is her own, or is it? 

Benedict Greystone is the one man that she has never been able to fully understand or get over.  He is the one that broke through her mask and saw the real woman behind the mistress facade.  When Vivien decides that she is done with this type of life, she makes a list of things she wants to complete before disappearing and starting a new life.  One of those things is Benedict.  She needs to purge him from her system.

I find that when someone has been on your mind and heart for several years, it is a safe bet that love is involved.  Benedict never got over Vivien and the fact that she believes they cannot be together is a blow to his heart.  When she makes it obvious that she wants to start up their affair again, he believes this is his chance.

When heartache and secrets are revealed, I am amazed at the strength both characters display.  I do think that Benedict could have been a little more direct with his brother’s interferring but when he chooses Vivien is a powerful moment.

I recommend this series to anyone that loves historical romances!

Rated 4 stars
