Synopsis 

There’s no turning back…
The second I spared Isabel’s life, everything changed. I used to deal in death wishes. Now the instinct to protect her charts the course. Because every time I turn away from her, something turns me back. She’s uncovered a side of me that I can no longer ignore. Doesn’t change the fact that she doesn’t belong in my world.
Isabel’s learning to hold her own, but nothing can prepare her for the life I’m being called back into. With a long road ahead of us, I won’t make promises I can’t keep. She can barely accept the dark deeds of my past—a bloody history spelled out in a ledger she’s more preoccupied with than I’d like. When an old associate sets a dangerous plan in motion, I can’t hide who I really am. And there’s no turning back…

Review by Susan:
After the last book I really had no idea which direction the author was going to take this story, I have to say, I wasn’t expecting that! The reader is once again kept on the edge of their seat, there’s so many twists that you just have to hold on and enjoy the ride. Old characters are back, some good, some not, also a few new ones. Secrets are revealed, new questions are to be answered, the ending!! I hope we don’t have to wait long for the next installment!  4.5 Stars

Review by Paula:

Wow I’m blown away! What a intense, crazy, dark, deep story! Valencia i love how strong of a character she is. That no matter what she never gives up. Lachlan what a dark soul but while reading you understand why and you think to yourself wouldn’t you want revenge. Two people in different worlds collide and become trapped in darkness and maybe the little of light will bring them together. At points this was a very tough book to read it shatters your heart. But in the end who is the devil and who is god? 5 Stars

 

About the Author:
V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

Talia
Hamilton has one mission. To have fun in college and for once, break out of her
shell. So who does she end up dancing with on her first night clubbing? Cage
Ward, the star of all her high school dirty dreams and the only man to ever
break her heart.
So much for breaking free.Cage Ward should be enjoying the single life. But all it takes is one kiss from
a mystery girl on the dance floor and he wants to brand her as his. That
is…until he realizes the sexy girl with lips to tempt and a body for sin, is
his best friend’s little sister. The same girl he just promised to keep his
hands, lips, and dick off of.

So much for friendship.

 

Review by Candy:
I freaking loved it! This was a short read but I totally fell in love with Talia and Cage. A definite must read. Wild fits the title because things get a little WILD in this one.  5 stars
Talia was different three years ago but she was friends with Cage and with a crush that he would never know about. One night Talia made sure he got home after drinking and to her surprise Cage kissed her and it was her dreams come true. Cage’s best friend Trevor had the best little sister that he could totally relate to and was good friends with. Then Cage got with Jenna and began distancing himself from Talia, little did he know he broke her heart for reasons he couldn’t remember. Three years later Talia and Cage are attending the same school, will they run into each other and will the past be brought to light for the friendship that was ruined?
These two characters will keep you on your toes and filled with intrigue as you want to know what happens along the way. M. and Nana great job as usual. You bring it with everything you got and I felt all the emotions, couldn’t put it down. Talia is a shy girl that I can totally relate too. She was very lovable and I rooted for her every step of the story. Cage was what we all want but can’t have but in our dreams. He had a heart of gold though and he was lovable just the same. Your stories bring the reader in and let them feel the characters emotions and lives. I love you both and enjoy the stories you bring to life. Each one different in it’s own way with heart and passion. You two are among many of favorites that I look forward to reading.

Keeping Her Close by Casey Diam

 

Title: Keeping Her Close
Author: Casey Diam
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 14, 2018
Blurb
When a heart is broken, it withdraws, shielding itself
from further pain, but also from further life.
Brandon Kuvat gave up on love ten years ago—the year he was set to
become a dad. A wealthy playboy pilot, he still sees plenty of action, but he’s
not the man he once was. Or the man he wishes he could be. The first time he
encounters Jordan, he knows immediately she is different. He also knows hurting
her is inevitable. Still, he can’t stay away, even if it means he’ll have to
settle for a friendship—but only for as long as that can last.

Wounded by a disastrous relationship, Jordan Artesian has put
her whole focus on work, nurturing her dreams of owning her own fashion line.
But though her creativity blooms, the rest of her is still frozen, that is,
until Brandon charms his way into her life. He’s irritating, but
somehow…intriguing. She hates that she finds his charming and challenging
ways attractive. He isn’t supposed to make her feel things she’s given up on
feeling.

For these two, friendship will never be enough—not when she’s what he needs to
heal, and he’s what she needs to feel again. But can they find their way down
the path of friendship to truly love and trust one another, or will they only
destroy each other’s hearts all over again?

Review by Candy:
That was an incredible read. A must read for sure. 5 stars!
Two broken souls who are attracted at first sight. But only end up friends till it’s too much. Jordan is a shy designer wanted to get her designs out there. Brandon is a wealthy man who isn’t feeling the same as he did when started his carefree attitude. An outing for Brandon brings him in contact with Jordan, but she’s different than the others. Will he get her in more ways than one or not at all?
Jordan is a great character that you’ll fall in love with cause she is a shy feisty woman. Brandon on the other hand you’ll want to slap or strangle, but in time fall in love with as well. The build of this story was on spot if you’d done it differently it wouldn’t have been the same. Casey I totally couldn’t put this story down once I started. You had me from the beginning straight to the end. Times you had me laughing and others in tears. I could feel both characters feelings because you delivered them well with your words. The story flowed between the characters point of view.
Excerpt
He handed
her a glass and clicked his to hers. “To happiness and beautiful people.”
“And
official first dates,” she added.
When she
finished her glass before him, he poured her another.
“Is there a
drinking contest I don’t know about?” he asked.
“No. I need
it. I just remembered where we’re going, and I need to relax.” She frowned as
she remembered her dates with Todd. They were always awkward. She was always
the outsider with his smart lawyer friends, and tonight would be the same with
Brandon. She wouldn’t know anyone. This was Brandon’s lifestyle and friends,
and she was just an accessory.
“You
shouldn’t be nervous. You’re with me,” he soothed, taking her free hand in his.
His touch warmed her body. “It’ll be fun. I promise.” He kissed the back of her
hand, causing her lower abdomen to flutter at the softness of his lips.
No,
don’t do that, 
a
small voice in her head squeaked. Tension spread out from his hand still
connected with hers.
She
swallowed champagne until a nice buzz settled over her. To letting go
and starting over,
 she mentally toasted. Taking a deep breath, she
relaxed into her seat and closed her eyes. “I feel it now. You need to get on
my level.”
He
chuckled. “Oh, really? And which level are you on?”
“Mmm, about
level three and a half. Maybe four.”
He laughed.
“I’ll be there with you in a few.” He released her hand, picked up the bottle
of champagne, and started to chug it. But then he stopped. “On a second
thought, I shouldn’t.”
“Why not?”
“Because I
can’t be tipsy and alone with you in that dress in here. I’m already too
tempted as it is.”

Midnight with the Devil by Emma Castle

Release Date: August 13, 2018

Cover Design: Covers By Combs

 

Synopsis

 

He’s sexy as sin and hotter than hell and—oh wait.

What would you do to save a loved one’s life? Make a pact with the Devil?

In Diana Kingston’s defense, it was the middle of the night in the deserted hospital chapel… surely it was just a dream. She hadn’t really sold herself to a brooding stranger to save her father’s life, right? Then she wakes and her father is fully recovered and a mysterious letter arrives from the tall, dark, handsome—um, Devil? Yep, it was right there on the contract, Lucien Star, aka Lucifer Morningstar, that had been his name in the dream… Gulp. What would the Devil himself want with her? Sex. Three months of hot, sweaty, Friday night sex.

Ooookay. Breaking a pact with the Devil doesn’t seem like a smart move. So she’ll do it—but she won’t like it. Not much anyway. But she starts liking it – a lot—and every night they spend together, she likes it and Lucien a little more. Being with him allows her naughty side to come out and play, but Diana starts to see more than just a sexy-as-sin, rock-hard … er…Anyway, he might be Satan, but even he was an angel once. Kind. Noble. And she sees glimpses of that man still inside him… But how in Heaven’s name do you save the Devil from himself?

Review by Susan:

This is a new to me author and also their first book, this is not the usual book I read but I was hooked after reading the blurb! It is a wonderful read, it has love, lust, heartbreak and some steamy scenes, the story focuses on Lucien and Diana and the pact she made with him. The chemistry between them is off the charts from the moment they meet, my kindle nearly went up in flames from the heat they were giving off! I did wonder how it would work as he is the actual devil but it does make sense and proves that love conquers all. The story is well written and flows well, this book was a refreshing change and I highly recommend it. 5 Stars

Tripp by Somer Hayes

 

 

 

Review by Victoria:
This was a delicious and fun read! Tripp and Hannah are hawt from page one!

Living in a small town can have it’s benefits and it’s downsides. For Hannah, she’s hoping her speciality bakery will fill a void in her small community. But she’s also hoping they’ve forgotten where she came from. She’s determined to make her dream come true, free of her past, and she wants to do it on her own. That is until her landlord becomes a rancher she never thought would be interested in her.
Tripp never thought he would run the family business. Rancher at heart, Tripp has only ever dreamed of living on his land, ranching until the end of his days, not going from one meeting to the other and dealing with rental properties. That is until a woman catches his eye and his thoughts, not something easy when all he cares about is ranching. He has far too much on his plate to be helping a young entrepreneur, even as she takes over his thoughts.
Hannah and Tripp have both come through so much as they find each other. Their story will worm it’s way into your heart before you realise it. Somer has written my favorite kind of happily ever after, their love never feels forced, moves at a reasonable speed with their own bumps and sidetracks along the way. Hannah comes into her own, not because of Tripp but for Tripp. Tripp realizes his own mistakes and discovers the true value in life his own way. This isn’t a read you’ll want to miss! 5 stars!

 

 

 

The oldest of five boys, Tripp shoulders the heavy burden of running the family businesses. His responsibilities bring with them bitterness, as his only desire is to work the family ranch away from the annoyances and frustrations of the city. However, the love he possesses for his younger brothers drive him to assume the role so they may be free to pursue their lives outside of the onerous name of Maverick. He finds himself withdrawing from the things he once loved and fears happiness is a noun that will never again apply to his life.

Hannah Price has worked hard for everything she has – which isn’t much. Born into a family mired in poverty to parents who dealt with addiction, they struggled to take care of themselves, much less raise their only daughter. Refusing to feel sorry for herself, Hannah quickly learned the value of a dollar and through her entrepreneurial spirit scraped and saved enough money to open her own business. However, the niche she thought she would be filling has been slow to catch on as the red meat loving cowboys all around her aren’t impressed by a fancy, gluten-free bakery.

Unwittingly, their paths collide and heads butt. Their struggles to reach their dreams seem to depend on the successes or failings of each other. Soon, the hard line Tripp draws between business and pleasure begins to blur, and the infallible Maverick falls.

**Standalone**

 

I shoved the last bite of a bran muffin in my mouth and washed it down with my third cup of coffee that morning. Four o’clock had come early, and I wanted to be sharp for my first day with the Mavericks. I hated the feeling of being indebted to someone and had resolved to myself that I wouldn’t be intimidated by my current situation. I was determined to see this arrangement as an opportunity rather than a last resort. I would prove to Tripp that my bakery and I were worth the chance he’d given us.
The sky was slowly changing from black to blue to purple with the coming of the sun when I reached the entrance to Maverick Ranch. About twenty minutes north of Great Falls, a log arch bearing a wrought iron ‘M’ spanned the road leading to the estate. Everyone knew where the Mavericks lived, so I’d had no trouble finding my destination, but this was the first time I’d ever pulled into the driveway. I tried to ignore the awakening of butterflies in my stomach as I followed the long path up the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Almost two miles later, I glimpsed the peaks of the roof of the Maverick home. I’d heard stories about the beauty of their property, but none had come close to doing it justice. Pulling around the last bend, the house came into full view, and I gasped.
The log home was massive. Standing proudly at the base of the foothills, the entire front of the house was glass and reflected the pristine, acre-size pond that rested in front of it. The driveway I was on circled between the front door and the water, and as I drove, I tried to take in every gorgeous detail. The surrounding landscape was perfection with the use of boulders, native grasses, and trees. I pulled past the house to the garage where I counted ten stalls and parked in front of the last one.
I took a moment to gather myself, then squared my shoulders and went to the front door. I wasn’t sure if I should ring the bell that early in the morning, so instead I knocked softly. Seconds later the door opened, and I gasped for the second time that day. There stood Tripp Maverick in nothing but a pair of low-slung jeans. I’d known he was a big man, but I was still taken back by the layers of bulky muscle covering his chest, abdomen, and arms. I yanked my eyes up to meet his before they could follow the sprinkling of hair traveling below his navel.
