Title: Absolving Blue ( On Call #4)
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Contemporary
Romance
Release Date: March 10, 2020
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

For long-time Durango Fire Department EMT, Ava ‘Blue’ Navarro, her teammates at Station 3 represent a family more loyal than her own.
However, when patients start dying on her watch, she draws the attention of local law enforcement. In particular the smooth-talking detective she’s successfully evaded for years, fearing he might stir up her quiet existence.
Detective Tony Ramirez considers himself a likable guy, which is why the perpetual cold shoulder from the athletic blonde first responder is confusing.
Now he finds himself in charge of a murder investigation that threatens to shake his world both personally and professionally. A situation that won’t earn him any brownie points.
When medical examiner, Calder Stonewall, is called in to assist, it only seems to throw more suspicion Blue’s way, and Tony has to pull out all the stops to prove her innocence while securing her heart.

“I really hate this,” she says when I lift my head.
“I must be losing my touch, then,” I joke, and she slaps my chest.
“Not that, you idiot. I hate being weak.”
“Now who’s being an idiot?” I lightly shake her. “If you sprained your ankle, would you think it weak to see a doctor? Do you think the people you tend to on a daily basis are weak?” When she reluctantly shakes her head, I push my point home. “So how’s this any different? We’re just talking about another part of you that needs some healing. Shit, if you think that makes you weak, you’re calling every cop in Durango a pussy. Wait ‘til I tell the guys.”
“You wouldn’t,” she snaps, her eyes spitting fire.
“If you keep spouting that nonsense, I might.”

The On Call series has become a favorite of mine, and with each new installment thus far, I fall further in love with Freya’s whole cast of characters—humans and animals!

Needless to say, I’m so happy that Tony Ramirez gets his happily ever after—apparently, no one is immune to where Cupid aims his arrow—not even a smoking hot, swoon-worthy, sexy-as-sin Latino detective! Yes, ladies, the Durango police department’s player extraordinaire is off the market, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Ava “Blue” Navarro is an EMT for Durango’s fire department and does just fine working and dealing with the guys in the firehouse on a daily basis. She may be pretty and tiny, but she certainly has the respect of her co-workers. Ava is also the focus of Tony’s attention.

There’s a reason Ava’s nickname is Blue, and it has nothing to do with the color of her eyes or her hair, which is blonde anyway. Just like so many of Freya’s characters, Ava has one helluva past, one that refuses to stay just where she left it.

This is where the suspense starts, the alpha heroes spin out of the telephone booths, chicken taco lessons are taught, and every bit of goodness, tenacity, strength, and loyalty explodes from the pages when someone in Durango is threatened or in harm’s way or needs some saving in more ways than one.

Tony and Ava are fantastic together. Their chemistry and understanding of each other’s job really goes a long way in making their relationship work. And let’s face it, Tony is just plain HOT!🌶🌶🌶‼️

Freya Barker conjures up some of the most genuine and likeable characters I’ve ever read, whether they’re the MCs or part of her brilliant supporting cast. She brings out their strengths, their weaknesses, and sometimes puts them through the wringer, but the best part is that in some capacity or another, they all find their way into every storyline. This is what world building is all about.

When I open up any one of Freya’s books, it feels like I’ve come home to visit my old friends, and then get to meet a new one—every single time, and Absolving Blue is no exception. Tony and Ava’s story is a perfect edition to this incredible series, and I can’t recommend it enough. Five stars for another spectacular read from the fabulous Freya Barker.

Title: Midnight Son
Series: True Alaskans #2
Author: Michelle Pace
Genre: Romance Suspense/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2020 

 

Screams. Flames. Shivering alone in the bitter Alaskan night – That’s all I can remember from before.

 

 

 

I don’t know where I came from or who I am, and I’m fairly certain I don’t want to. I am absolutely certain about Andi Campbell, though; she’s my light at the end of the tunnel, but I can’t tell her that.
Most of True, Alaska, still shuns me because I won’t speak, but not The Campbells – and that would change if they ever found out what Andi and I did when her mother was missing last summer. Andi seems to agree, and we steer clear of each other now.
But Andi’s sister Delilah is getting married, and it’s impossible to avoid one another at Hennessy Cove, the secluded inn the bride and groom booked for their intimate ceremony. From the moment we touch down, something about the place fills me with dread. And every time I cross paths with the smiling innkeeper, I break out in a cold sweat.
Knowing Andi’s sleeping in the room next door just makes that fever worse.

I’d been fighting all my life.
Making it my career choice seemed…logical.
Sticking to what I was good at seemed…illogical as often as I ended up in the ER.
Then my occupational hazard began to feel like more of a perk when I met, Katy. She was a night nurse at the ER I frequented. She could barely hide her contempt for me, which naturally made the curvy brunette with long wavy hair all the more irresistible.

They called him Dagger, for the looks he gave.
He knew I hated him on sight, but still, he teased me and tried to sway me.
There’s no way it would work. I was on the run and still healing from a relationship with a ‘roid-raging powerlifter. No way was I going to give it a go with someone trained to cause pain for a living.
Then my ex tracked me down. And suddenly, having a fighter in my corner didn’t seem like such a bad idea.

Callan Rose.
That hadn’t always been his name.
When we were children, he was nothing more than a servant boy in my family.
He was an amusement to me.
A nobody.
A weak soul who refused to fight back.
It was so easy to take advantage.
 
But then my father died, and I was stolen. The family moved on without me. Until I was penniless with no place to go.
 
I returned to the Rose Estate not knowing Callan was the head of it.
He’d honed his body and temper in the underground fighting ring. The scars only made him more beautiful.
 
Now I’m trapped by a seductively dark man who has nothing but vengeance running through his veins.
 
I’d always wanted him to fight back, but you know what they say:
Be careful what you wish for.

Title: Liam
Series: The Chaos Chasers
Author: C.M. Marin
Genre: Romantic Suspense/MC Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2020

 

LIAM
Endless red hair, skin of a porcelain doll, legs that run for miles… Erin is the epitome of sexy. The best thing about her? She has no clue how beautiful she is. And she’s so much more than beauty, too. I had never felt like something was missing in my life until I spent an entire afternoon with this kind, sweet girl whose cheeks redden with shyness every time I smile at her.
She’s all I can think about now. She triggered a need that’s been digging deeper roots in my chest with each day that has passed since she left town. And after a few weekends of enjoying her smiles, listening to her voice, and worshipping her body, I’m more than ready to beg her to choose Twican as her new home. Especially after her life has been threatened. I want her close to me, and it’s time to let her know that.
But life doesn’t always make it easy for you, does it? 
 
ERIN
Everything in my life is going as planned. I’m now officially a nurse, and even though my current job is temporary, I know I’ll eventually find the position I’ve always wanted. Everything is going to work out like it’s supposed to; I can feel it.
And then, there’s Liam. Strong, fierce, tattooed and muscled, he’s the kind of man I never thought would even spare me a brief glance, yet we’ve been seeing each other for a few months. We’re complete opposites, yet he makes me happier than anyone else ever has. We haven’t put a label on our relationship, but I don’t need labels to know how much Liam means to me. In the span of just a few months, he worked his way into my heart, grabbing small pieces of it until he owned it.
All in all, life has been pretty much near perfect. Unfortunately, life only needs one moment to snatch back what it gave you.

Title: Bound (The Devil’s Due)
Author: Eva Charles
Genre: Romantic Suspense & Alpha Hero/Protector
Release Date: February 20, 2020

Father Creighton and Smith Sinclair.
Two dangerous men inexplicably drawn to me.
One bound by a holy vow, the other by duty and honor.
 
One emphatically covets my soul.
The other, despite his regrets, desires my heart.
Each demands I surrender my body to his control.
 
A priest and a soldier.
A demon and a knight.
An eternity in darkness, or a lifetime of love and light.
 
In the end, I have only seconds to decide.
Sinclair takes hold of a small section of my hair, twirling it around a finger. When he releases it, the soft curl bounces off my cheek. “I love redheads,” he murmurs in a low seductive voice. “Is it true their pain threshold is higher?” His nimble fingers find my hair again, combing roughly through the strands. Just before he reaches the ends, he furls his hand and tugs firmly. “Is it, Kate?” My mouth falls open, but I can’t form words. “Do you enjoy having your hair pulled?”

I hate having my hair pulled. At least that’s what I always thought. But the tugging called my body to attention, put every nerve on high alert. And yes, I did enjoy it—all of it. But I especially enjoyed the way my scalp and pussy tingled in sync, as though they were engaging in an erotic dance for my pleasure alone. I’m still enjoying it. Although I have no intention of telling him that. I shake my head in response.

His eyes are dark slits. “Liar,” he murmurs, a breath away from my temple.

The warm sensation caresses my skin. It’s a stark contrast to the cruel word, liar. Is that what it would be like with him? Cruelty swathed in a tender caress? Would I enjoy that, too? Oh, God.

My throat is parched. My brain thick with fog. I’m aroused. And confused. With every circuit misfiring.

“How badly do you want those answers?” He hooks a thumb under my chin, forcing me to meet his gaze. “What are you willing to do to get them?”

His last question jolts me out of my he-is-hot-as-sin and I want to melt in the fires of hell trance. “You’re kidding?” I pant softly.

He smirks. It’s a menacing little smirk. “I’m not kidding. If I’m going to answer your questions, you’re going to make it worth my time. Or at least make it interesting. It’s not too much to ask, is it, Kate?” He stands inches from me, his voice sultry and rich when he says my name.

I don’t move. I can’t. My heart is pounding. It’s all I hear. That, and the small voice of reason nearly obscured by his chiseled features and strong hands. Go, Kate. Now! While you can, it shouts. But I don’t. My feet are stuck to the floor, and there’s nowhere to go, anyway. I can’t get out of this place without the codes, and he could overtake me easily if I run. My eyes dart around the room looking for an escape. I should at least make some effort to leave.

“Relax. We won’t do anything you don’t want to do.”

His voice has lost the perilous edge, but I’m not convinced he’s any less dangerous. Or maybe I’m not sure that I need much convincing to do whatever it is he has in mind.
After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.
 
When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Title: Dirty Girls
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 29, 2020
They were the boys any good girl knew to avoid.
Rich and privileged.
Gorgeous and cruel.
The poster boys for rebellion…their tongues so sharp they cut to the bone.
 
We worshipped them despite their dangerous games.
We laughed even as we cried.
 
It was all fun and games until the first dirty girl died.
 
Now, as the bodies pile up, I believe I can endure their wicked ways. Only time will tell if I’ll escape.
 
Because when wealthy boys are accustomed to getting everything they want, not even the lives of those around them are too high an asking price.
Warning: This book is a dark romance. If you are looking for a sweet and tender story, you won’t find it here.

“Lily White at it again, she likes to whip you with suspense, choke you with mystery, and keep you guessing until very end!” ~Amazon review

“… a fascinating, disturbing, intriguing and thought provoking read.” ~Amazon Review

I was putting distance between us with each step, the numbers growing faint until I barely heard ten. They had to be a good distance away, but I didn’t think it would be enough.

Already, thin branches had grabbed at my hair and ripped individual strands from my head. My feet had stumbled over stones on the ground and roots that were growing too high up.

Every so often, thick patches of bushes would block my way, causing me to turn left or right to avoid them.

I was engulfed in darkness, the moon and stars hidden above the canopy of trees, and eventually the forest around me grew silent. I could only hear my heavy breathing. But I didn’t stop. Didn’t turn to see if I could hear footsteps behind me, didn’t slow down to give myself even a second to catch my breath. I just kept going without concern for where I would end up, as long as it was away from them.

For a moment I believed that I’d somehow outrun them, but when a tree blocked my path and I had to dodge to avoid it, a hand slapped at my arm causing me to scream.

I turned again and ran in a different direction with deep laughter booming from where I had been.

I was being corralled, but still I kept running, even when my body wanted to give out.
