Check out this awesome giveaway! RTC19 was an amazing event…

SEELKs fire & ice

Hello and welcome!

I mentioned in one of my earlier blogs about my plans to attend Romancing the Capital in Ottawa, Canada again this year, I did and had a blast. Got to see old friends, made new ones and as usual I went over the budget by a smidge 😉

Eve Langlais and her minions rocked it as usual. Looks like this is it, at least for a while, so I am glad I went. I want to thank all the sponsors, the authors and those who helped them for a great event.

The VIP bags were full with the generous donations from the authors.

Thursday afternoon I was so excited to finally met in person one of my longtime on-line friends, Gayle, AKA Dark Angel, and we had a great meal and got caught up on our lives.

Then in the evening, I attended the “Audio & Crafts…

Blurb:
I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.

But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.

And so do I.

Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.

If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.

But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.

And darkness.

 

 

Excerpt:
Shame, hot and prickling, needles everywhere at my face and chest and belly as I begin to bend down to the floor. The cool air that caresses my pussy is now everywhere as the position begins to expose my most secret flesh, and there’s no pretending away the reality of what I’m doing. I’m doing something I’ve never done before, I’m offering up the filthiest part of me for inspection, and despite everything the three of us have shared in the past twenty-four hours, I’m flooded with shame. It’s real shame now, not play-shame, and my safe word floats to the top of my mind, a buoy in the clear waters.

Convivificat.

I don’t want to safe out right now, I’m nowhere near the edge, but it’s nice to have it there all the same. Reassuring. There’s nothing they can do that I can’t stop.

And anyway, this is who I am—who I’ve been growing into ever since I found the words to define it.

As Fate Would Have It by Dee Lagasse

We’re celebrating the release of As Fate Would Have It by Dee Lagasse! One-Click yours today!

As Fate Would Have It (Caparelli & Co, #2) by Dee Lagasse
New Adult Contemporary Romance

Designed by Dee Lagasse

 

Blurb:

Six months.

That’s all that stood between Paxton “Pax” Callaghan and his new life. A life out of New Hampshire, far away from a past that continues to haunt him. After promising his family he would give it six months in his mother’s hometown of Abbott Hills before leaving, Pax settled in with a plan. A plan that is all but forgotten about when a certain beautiful blonde keeps appearing when he least expects it.
A favor.
When her mother’s childhood best friend’s heartbroken son moved to town, Nicole “Cole” Christian begrudgingly agreed to head the welcome wagon. The second she came face-to-face with Pax and his perfect smile, Cole immediately knew she made the right decision.
But small-town drama and a past they can’t escape make Pax and Cole realize they’re in for a fight… between their own heads and hearts.
Review by Candy:
Captivating! Small Town romance. Absolutely loved it! The title fits it perfectly! Sad to say I was sad it was over so soon that the end came when I wasn’t ready. This truly was a story at the hands of fate. Dee you did a fantastic job bringing Cole and Pax’s story to life. This story is a must read! 5+ Stars! It flows perfectly and you’ll be reading and then it’ll be the end before you know it and that’s where Dee, you rock! Pulled me in and kept me there. You’ll laugh and cry but love every minute. The characters are passionate and strong, you’ll fall in love with them.

Brick by ML Nystrom

Title: Brick
Author:  ML Nystrom
Series: Dragon Runners, book 5
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 6, 2019
Cover Designer: Booksmith Design
 Add to TBR
Available now!
All other links: books2read.com/brick
In the beginning, there was one determined man and one strong woman. In their struggles, they created a dynasty.
Brick had one mission since he was a boy: become a Dragon Runner.  The motorcycle club meant everything to him. Blood and bone from his brothers paid the Dragon’s dues time and time again. And watching it split apart was more than he could handle.
Then he met Betsey.
An unwanted daughter born into abuse, Betsy lived her life beatdown under a rigid thumb, never allowed to be herself.  Her one goal was to leave her abusive family and be free.  She fought on the losing end of that fight.
Then she met Brick.

This is the fifth book in the series but can be read as a standalone, we are taken back to the beginning of Brick and Bessie’s relationship and it leads the reader through their ups and downs. It’s a fast paced, jam packed story which gives you the insight of how Brick becomes the president of the dragon runners mc and also the history of how the club ended up the way it is now.

We get to see how some of our beloved characters got together and met some new ones, I devoured this book in one sitting, I was totally captivated from the beginning and didn’t want the story to end! This was a fabulous addition to this series and I can’t wait to see where the author takes us next.

I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!
I’ve spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean I’m pigeon-holed into one mold.  I’ve been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, “Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities.”   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

WRITTEN WITH YOU by Aly Martinez

WWY - BT banner.jpg

“Aly Martinez is one of the best in the business. You have to read her books.” –Meghan March, New York Times Bestselling Author

Written With You, the emotional and highly anticipated conclusion to The Regret Duet from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez, is available now!

WW You FOR WEB.jpg

When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

Review by Paula:

Wow what a amazing ending to a incredible series! This one is full of suspense and every question is answered! I’m sitting here still in shock with the outcome but I loved every page! Hadley, Willow and Caven’s story is heartbreaking and thrilling all into one deep story. Things happen for a reason and definitely with them three it truly did! I didn’t want the story to end and I couldn’t stop reading it! Definitely don’t pass this series up! 5/5 stars

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

About Aly

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

Smoke by Gemma Weir

 

 

Book: Smoke by Gemma Weir (#5 in the Archer’s Creek Series)Genre: Series-interconnected stand-alone contemporary MC Romance**NOW LIVE** 


BUY SMOKE NOW

Review by Candy:
That was an awesome read! 5 Stars! Being part of a series it was easy to read as a standalone. Loved it! There was so much tension between the main characters that it made it a page turner. Riley and Smoke aka Justin are great characters. Their personalities are total opposites but makes them seem likely to attract to each other but they may not either. Can’t give it away, lol. Gemma thank you for writing Riley and Smoke’s story. I see you struggled and glad these two won to over to be completed. Easy flowing story line with both characters point of view (my favorite). Highly recommend as a standalone or the series because great characters to want to find out more about.

 

Synopsis: 

Smoke I know women. I love them and they love me. I don’t chase them; they line up and I pick out whichever takes my fancy. Only now there’s her. She’s unimpressed, disinterested. She’s different and I can’t look away. I don’t understand her, but I need to make her look. I need to make her see me and then never look away again.
Sometimes the things that don’t come easily are the things that we should fight the hardest for, and with Riley I’m in for the fight of my life 

 Riley I’ve been hurt and my heart’s still bruised. I know who Smoke is. I’ve seen it all before, the arrogant ‘king of the world’ attitude. So I’m mean, cold, and harsh because offense is the best defense when it comes to protecting myself. Only what if he’s not who I think he is? I don’t want to want him, but I just can’t help myself, and sometimes what we shouldn’t want is exactly what we need.
