Illicit Heat Series By Ann Lister

NEW RELEASE!!

Billionaire’s Toy: Illicit Heat (book 3)

Amazon: http://ow.ly/JF3M50jULZH

Synopsis: 

What do you give a man who has the money to buy everything … literally? Yourself. That is, if by some miracle he’d ever see you as anything other than his best friend. 

Jake: I’ve been in love with him since he was a pimply-faced, preppy boy. Okay, that description isn’t exactly accurate—he’s always been gorgeous. Now, he’s an uber-rich millennial and takes my breath away every time we share the same space. Who am I talking about? My best friend, Barrett. The man who I’ve known I wanted to share my life with since the age of fourteen. Now that we’re older, I want him in ways I know aren’t possible. And why? Because I’m bisexual, and he’s straight. 

Barrett: My fortieth birthday is in a few days and my good-intentioned best friend wants to throw me a party with all of our friends, but that’s not what I want. Full disclosure? I want a private party with Jake. One that has a no-clothing theme and involves a big bed.

That kind of sounds as though I want my best friend. You wouldn’t be wrong about that. I’ve been in love with him since before I understood that it was okay to have feelings for another guy. He was my first love and I want him to be my forever. The problem? Jake doesn’t see me that way. Never has … and he never will. The Illicit Heat Series is a new collection of short, erotic stories. Each story in this series will be under 15,000 words and can be read as a stand-alone.

Amazon: http://a.co/d/blGphU2

Synopsis:

It was on the suggestion of Christian’s therapist that he spend more time outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and get a little exercise in the process. His family and friends were constantly harping on him to do the same. 

“Live a little and don’t be afraid to take chances,” they said. 

“Life’s a journey best enjoyed with a healthy dose of adrenaline,” others said. 

But their droning words of advice was exactly why he found himself walking around in circles—lost in the middle of an unfamiliar hiking park—east of Nowhere and a little south of Wherethehellami.

The only human he’d managed to see in the last three hours, the one person who could possibly point him in the direction of his car, was a gorgeous man who preferred to do his hiking … naked.

Who hiked around naked in the woods like that?

Derek did, and he was about to show Christian exactly why hiking naked was the only way to experience the sport.

In “Climbing The Longhorn,” Christian sets off for the hike of his life with Derek as his personal trail guide. Turns out, hiking naked up the Longhorn is just one of many erotic adventures Derek exposes him to that weekend, and the fresh air and exercise never felt so good.

The Illicit Heat Series is a brand new collection of short, erotic stories by Bestselling Author, Ann Lister. Each story in this series will be under 15,000 words and can be read as a stand-alone.

Title: That Was Yesterday
Author: HJ Bellus
Genre: Contemporary Romance (standalone)
Release Date: December 4, 2018
One call. That’s all it took to change everything. The sweet voice on the other end of the line delivered a blow I never saw coming. Fighting for our country’s freedom and staring death in the eye was nothing compared to this news.

History has one hell of a way repeating itself. Kate Wilson’s voice didn’t waver once as she turned my worst nightmare into a reality, and her words weaved a cruel poetic justice. 
 
I hadn’t been back home in over two years. Once I pulled into the one-horse town, I was greeted by the gorgeous blonde.
 
Kate extended her hand and offered me a warm smile. The connection was made. The innocent beauty has no idea that she just flipped my life upside down.
 
She’d unearthed secrets that can never be buried.
 

HJ Bellus is a small-town girl who loves the art of storytelling. When not making readers laugh or cry, she’s a part-time livestock wrangler that can be found in the middle of Idaho, shot gunning a beer while listening to some Miranda Lambert on her Beats and rocking out in her boots.

🏳️‍🌈Review of Rend by Roan Parrish

30697638-C41D-4103-B655-9552B54C8543Rend (Riven #2) 

by Roan Parrish

Amazon: http://a.co/d/7cffljT

SYNOPSIS:

After a whirlwind romance, a man with a painful past learns to trust the musician who makes him believe in happy endings.

 

Matt Argento knows what it feels like to be alone. After a childhood of abandonment, he never imagined someone might love him—much less someone like Rhys Nyland, who has the voice of an angel, the looks of a god, and the worship of his fans.

Matt and Rhys come from different worlds, but when they meet, their chemistry is incendiary. Their romance is unexpected, intense, and forever—at least, that’s what their vows promise. Suddenly, Matt finds himself living a life he never thought possible: safe and secure in the arms of a man who feels like home. But when Rhys leaves to go on tour for his new album, Matt finds himself haunted by the ghosts of his past.

When Rhys returns, he finds Matt twisted by doubt. But Rhys loves Matt fiercely, and he’ll go to hell and back to triumph over Matt’s fears. After secrets are revealed and desires are confessed, Rhys and Matt must learn to trust each other if they’re going to make it. That means they have to fall in love all over again—and this time, it really will be forever.

Roan Parrish’s pitch-perfect Riven novels can be read together or separately:

RIVEN | REND

I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that Rend was not about Theo and Caleb, the couple from Riven, but it is about Caleb’s oldest friend, Rhys.  We already know Rhys is married to Matt, and Rend is their story.

The first half of the book is, well, rather boring.  It tells of Matt’s day to day life, and I just felt like it was almost void of any emotion from Matt.  Rhys is full of life and is madly in love with Matt, but Matt is struggling.  The second half of the book, you learn more about Matt’s heartbreaking past, and it had me wondering if the author made the first half emotionally boring to make the reader feel so much in the second half, because the emotions hit you hard. Matt started questioning if he was good enough for Rhys, even feeling unworthy of being loved.  His childhood is full of heartache and hurt, and you begin to understand why Matt is so afraid, but Rhys will fight for him.

Yes, Theo and Caleb are in this book, quite a lot, actually.  I enjoyed catching up with them and seeing such a strong bond between Caleb and Rhys.

Once again, the author’s writing will hit you with all the feels, and I have a feeling this story will be with me for a long time.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Title: Christmas Wish
Series: Insurgents MC #12
Author: Chiah Wilder
Genre: MC Holiday Romance (Standalone)
Release Date: November 27, 2018

“Chiah Wilder brings all the biker holiday spirit in Christmas Wish!” ~The Red Hatter Book Blog


“What a fantastic addition to the series! From the very beginning I was drawn in and the characters kept me hooked from start to finish!” ~Amazon Review


“A Gritty, Intense, Heartfelt Holiday Read” ~Amazon Review


Ryder Rossi dropped out of life.

He came back from the war a broken and angry man. They gave him a Purple Heart, but it sits in the bottom of an old chest his dad gave him years ago. He doesn’t feel like a hero. Hell, he doesn’t even feel like a man. Honorable Discharge was what he got after losing a leg to a landmine. Hawk from the Insurgents MC has been his best buddy since Ryder came back to Pinewood Springs. The ruggedly good-looking biker used to be an Insurgent but he gave that up a long time ago along with everything else. All he wants is to ride his Harley and be left alone. 

When Savannah Carlton and her young son, Timmy, homestead on Ryder’s property, he sees red. It doesn’t matter that the pretty blonde pushes some buttons in him that haven’t been in use for quite a while. He doesn’t want her near him, and her son reminds him of the son he’s been forced to forget. 

Savannah is running away from her ex-husband’s family who want Timmy. Her beat-up RV died on Ryder’s property, and even though the surly biker tells her to leave, she sees kindness behind his anger. She finds herself making excuses to talk to him, but she doesn’t want to fall for Ryder. Her life is screwed up enough, and the last thing she needs is a high maintenance biker. 

Can two mismatched, lonely people find the Christmas light in their darkened lives? 

This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/ graphic sexual scenes . HEA. No cliffhangers. The book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

“Timmy was so exhausted that he fell fast asleep. He had such a great day. Thanks for helping to make that happen,” she said.
Savannah was beaming, literally glowing with excitement. Ryder’s heart tripped over itself at the sight of her blonde hair in loose waves around her shoulders, with no makeup, and wrapped in a green robe that hugged all her curves. It took every ounce of restraint not to scoop her up in his arms and whisk her off to the bedroom.
Damn, he wanted her. Ryder couldn’t remember ever wanting anyone as much as he wanted Savannah at that moment.
“I’m going to make some hot chocolate. Do you want some?” “
You’re fucking obsessed with that drink.” He chuckled. She giggled.
“I am—I never realized it. Although I think tonight I’ll try it your way with a shot of whiskey.”
“In that case, I’ll have one too, but make it a double shot.” “You’re so bad.” She ran her fingers through his hair, and he grasped her hand and kissed it.
“You look beautiful,” he said, his voice thick.
Savannah withdrew her hand gently and smiled. “You’re good for my ego.” He watched while she padded away, groaning as her hips swayed just right in the sexy-as-shit robe.
Actually, it was just a standard flannel robe that he wouldn’t even have looked at twice, but the way it clung around her curves got his dick punching against his jeans. He tossed a throw pillow on his lap and shook his head and smiled. Damn that woman.
 

Chiah Wilder writes about rough, sexy men who know how to treat their women.
Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner.
Her love of reading has always been center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her books. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, romances with tough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons.

Angry. Desperate. Broken. Mine.

I’ve always been on my own. No one had ever fought for me before. Why should anyone start now? But she did, no matter how much I tried to stop her. I knew I was nothing, unworthy of her, but she was persistent. Once she got under my skin, I couldn’t let her go, because where I end, she begins.
