Angela Waters juggles two high-stress jobs: nurse and earthbound angel. On a rare girls’ night out, she intervenes and saves the life of Mason Kearney, a stripper with southern charm and a secret. It’s a move that will force her to contemplate why in all the heavens she puts up with the injustice of being an angel, which leads to a bombshell that challenges everything she’s ever known.

In the midst of falling for the Alabama boy, she’s in for the fight of her life when a demon, hell-bent on taking her wings, shows up at the most inopportune times.

With a family of angels rallying behind her, she’s sent on a mission to learn everything about them, herself, and evil, to save all the earthbounds from an untimely demise.

Can Angela survive with her heart and her wings intact?



My Favorite Scene to Write in Virtue and Honor
by Randi Perrin

There are a lot of really good scenes in Virtue and Honor, so it’s hard to pin down just one.

The prologue was written to be jarring to anyone who was vested in the series, and I relished in how much I was going to shake up everyone’s world. I was literally doing the evil cackle as I wrote that.

The opening scene at the strip club, that one was fun as well. The first sex scene in this one took several tries to get right, but I loved how it turned out. It’s sappy and romantic, which is generally not my style, but for these two, it was so perfect.

I also had so much fun writing interactions between Mason and Angela’s dad. Next to Cheryl, he’s the most sarcastic character in the bunch, and so very much fun to write.

However, if I’m forced to choose, and it looks like I am, my favorite scene is the one in the garage when Angela is running late and has to pick up her work badge from Mason.

Why?

It actually happened. It didn’t involve a vintage Trans Am, rather my Mazda 3, and a pack of hot dogs instead of a work badge.

My friend apologized all over herself, as she knows how I am about my car, but I was laughing so damn hard I was crying. She looked at me and said, “that has to go in your next book.”

My response: “Challenge accepted.”

It took a couple tried to get it right, as my first instinct was to have it happen with a different character. With a pack of hot dogs. However, as writing is a whole lot of trial and error, that didn’t feel right, so I scrapped it and tried again with different circumstances. Finally, success.

Lesson learned: never throw something to someone in a running car in the rain.

Kingpin review, Alexa Riley

I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this book and chose to review it.

The Breeder series is my favourite of the dynamic duo's, so I was really looking forward to Kingpin. I was a little disappointed. I felt there was too much time setting up the relationship and not enough of the fun stuff! I liked Thea and Sal but the ending came too soon for me, I really wanted to see some of Sal when Thea was pregnant. 
The bonus story, Gio and Emma's, for me, was better than Kingpin. I felt the immediate reaction of him to her was really well written. I felt like the story was much more relationship based.

But Kingpin was still a good, quick read. It's everything we've come to expect from the girls and I enjoyed it. 📖📖📖📖

Havoc review and release blitz, Laramie Briscoe


I voluntarily received an advance review copy of this book and chose to review it.


I genuinely liked this book. I think Holden and Leighton are a great couple and I loved their story. I did find the details hard to follow at times as it's so intertwined with other books in the series. I also found it a bit light on details about the characters, besides what we already knew. I felt like I didn't really get to know them. But what did shine through was their relationship and I did genuinely like that.

This is a great series and I can't wait to read the other guys' stories!

Title: Havoc
Series: Moonshine Task Force #3
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2017



Blurb

When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that's what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

Amnesty release blitz, Cambria Hebert

Amnesty
Cambria Hebert
(Amnesia, #2)
Publication date: August 18th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

There’s freedom in remembering.

My past is a double-edged sword.

Damned if I remember; damned if I don’t.

Recollection beyond the horrors I already have will change me. Change us.

But what if I’m living a lie? What if everything I believe is wrong?

What if who I thought I was isn’t real?

If not her, then…

Who am I?

Eddie says it doesn’t matter, but deep down, I’m terrified it does.

I’m trapped. Held prisoner by a past I can’t remember and a future that may not belong to me.

There’s a light, though not at the end of the tunnel…

It’s wavering in the distance, calling to me from Rumor Island.

That light, it scares me far more than darkness. Am I brave enough to confront it?

So many questions, so few answers.

I don’t have a choice; the truth always finds a way to the surface.

Finally learning who I truly am will be a permanent life sentence.

Total punishment or absolute amnesty.

The Bunny and the billionaire cover reveal, Louisa Masters

Spending their fortunes and losing their hearts.
Title: The Bunny and The Billionaire
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 01-Oct-17
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Designer: Bree Archer
PREORDER BUY LINKS:
Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy LĂ©o Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. LĂ©o, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only LĂ©o's world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.

As they make allowances for each other's foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and LĂ©o widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance, and they're not ready to say goodbye.
Louisa Masters started reading romance much earlier than her mother thought she should. While other teenagers were sneaking out of the house, Louisa was sneaking romance novels in and working out how to read them without being discovered. She’s spent most of her life feeling sorry for people who don’t read, convinced that books are the solution to every problem. As an adult, she feeds her addiction in every spare second, only occasionally tearing herself away to do things like answer the phone and pay bills. She spent years trying to build a “sensible” career, working in bookstores, recruitment, resource management, administration, and as a travel agent, before finally conceding defeat and devoting herself to the world of romance novels.

Louisa has a long list of places first discovered in books that she wants to visit, and every so often she overcomes her loathing of jet lag and takes a trip that charges her imagination. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she whines about the weather for most of the year while secretly admitting she’ll probably never move.
