A most delicious challenge…

Jasper St. David isn’t looking for distractions, but he’s fascinated by beautiful, fiercely opinionated Emily when she moves into the office above his. And when he learns of her determination never to succumb to male charms, he can’t help but see it as a challenge! After all, Jasper’s always found nothing more tantalizing than the thrill of the chase…

Undone By His Kiss

Excerpt 1

She was a beauty, no doubt. All fluster, indignation and tempting female. Her nose tipped up at the end and the fitting observation caused him to smile. Miss Shaw struck him as a female who turned her nose up on a great many things.

He was an easygoing sort. Why he’d become obsessed with a stranger who appeared as relaxed as a wasp’s nest proved baffling. He had more important subjects to consider and the distraction of a lovely female was the last thing he desired, never mind he’d had trouble chasing her memory from his thoughts all day. Still, she fascinated him for some illogical reason. He’d watched her mouth form every word, captivated by her lips, perfectly heart-shaped, plump and kissable, and instead of comprehending her message, he wondered of the taste of her kiss, the feel of tongue.

Terribly done of him, really. Miss Shaw appeared less than interested. Her back had been rigid, her shoulders squared, yet she really was all soft skin and feminine curves.

 

Excerpt 2

His mouth found hers with uncompromised precision, lost in the glory of her adamant return. Her fingers slid through the hair at his temples, locking him to her in an expression of eager participation that made his heart pound and his cock ache. She tasted like a dream, an ambrosial combination of feminine sweetness and forbidden fruit, the freedom he yearned for and the divine fantasy he’d conjured, united in the hot slick rub of her tongue against his, the petal-soft press of her mouth against his jaw, his chin, his cheek. She rasped some delicious little noise, a murmur in the back of her throat, an entreaty for him to pleasure her, and he supplicated with fervor, dragging his mouth across her cheekbone to find the delicate shell of her ear where he whispered all the wicked thoughts kept buried in his heart.

She stilled. Perhaps he’d revealed too much, offended her refined gentility. His pulse hammered, while he waited, his breath hard and fast. Then her lips found his, her tongue next with a timid caress of his lower lip, licking, tasting his mouth to continue their kiss until all thought became impossible, obliterated by the thrum of passion and urgency and need. He pressed her against the velvet bolster, his shirt against her dress little barrier to the soft skin she hid beneath. Her fingers twined in the braces at his shoulders, as if lifelines to anchor her, the threat of their passion enough to sweep them away.

He wanted to strip her bare, discover every inch from neck to navel, to tell her she’d answered the silent prayer he hadn’t known lived in his soul. To drive into her delicate honey-sweet sex and make her his alone. He fought the desire with all the strength he owned.

Author Bio
Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A nursing student, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
Love Hurts is her debut novel and she is currently working on the next in the series along with whatever other voices are clamoring for attention in her mind.

‘Juliana’ by Vanda Cover Reveal

 

Juliana
By- Vanda
Genre- LGBT/Literary Fiction/Historical
Expected Publication Date-  September 14, 2015
 
It’s 1941 and Alice “Al” Huffman comes from the potato fields of Long Island with her childhood friends to make it on the Broadway stage, only to find she has no talent. She meets Juliana, the glamorous, perpetually-on-the-brink-of stardom nightclub singer whose voice sounds to her like “warm milk slipping down the whole of my body.”
 
Juliana, a sexual risk-taker with a secret, easily reels in a mesmerized Al who has never felt a love like this before.  Al is determined to hang onto Juliana no matter what. The only problem is that Juliana is more a woman of her time than Al could ever have expected.
 
Through Juliana, Al enters a secret world that includes men who wear frilly bathrobes and grass skirts and women who smoke cigars and wear pants with the zippers in the front.  Cameo appearances are made by Liberace, Ethel Merman, Talulah Bankhead, Lauren Bacall, Angela Lansbury and other 1940s celebrities.

HAPPY JULY!!!! Who wants a PREZZIE?

fireworks

Man oh man am I rusty.  I can’t believe how long it’s been since I chatted on here about books.  It has been a crazy busy time with the kids plus trying to write another book. PHEW…clearly I suck. LOL

Well I have read some really awesome reads. I just finished Chance Encounter by the amazing Christy Reece.  Up on my immediate list is Debra Webb’s See Him Die and Pamela Clare’s Soul Deep. I also have a few ARC’s that I am going to dive into.  Come be my friend on GR to see. I at least have been writing some reviews there and on Amazon.

How about a little treat for y’all.  Tell me your favorite genre and something you are really looking forward to this summer. AND I will dig deep in my bookshelves for a PREZZIE.

I hope to finish my book with my writing partner.  I will be visiting my favorite beach thanks to my awesome sister in law and brother in law, I hope to catch up on my reading too.  I want this summer to go slowly even though I have been a driving fool for my kids because…in August I will be delivering 2 kids to college. And I have to say…it is weighing heavily.  Especially taking my baby girl. 

I have really missed this blog, and I hope to get back into it.  Being busy has got to stop being an excuse from getting to write.  It soothes my soul to sit and write.  Maybe this summer I will remember to do a little bit for me.

Happy 4th !!!!

❤ ❤ ❤

Depraved (Faces of Evil, #10)Depraved by Debra Webb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

HOLY SMOKES…

CAN I JUST SAY…OHHHH MAH GAWD!

I was lucky to get an early copy to proof AND CAN I JUST SAY (again, I know I am repeating myself)…

PERFECTION!
RIVETING!!
BOOM!!!

I could not put this book down. I was completely captivated. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed the journey of getting to know AND love Jess and Dan. I am a HUGE fan of murder, suspense and a hard core serial killer. To be able to also combine all of this AND a kick ass love story…WELL THAT IS PERFECTION.

THIS story kept me on the edge of my seat. I kept putting my e-reader down, my heart was literally pounding. I was so torn…I wanted to know what was going to happen…BUT I was worried. LOL

I FLOVED the ending…what a wild crazy ride. AND the TWIST at the end…HOLY SMOKES….I knew that that character was off BUT HOT DAMN. I will not write spoilers…NOT how I roll. BUT I will tell you this series is A MUST READ. I can’t wait for The Wedding AND I am over the moon that while this case is closed. We will continue to see these characters in future books…

One of the best things about this series is that the supporting cast of characters are awesome too and I am looking forward to also seeing them in future books. Something tells me that Jess & Dan, Lori, Chet and even Buddy have lots more crime solving as well as other fun things in their future. These are characters that will stay with you long after the story is over.

Fans of romantic suspense MUST TAKE THIS RIDE…Debra Webb is a force to be reckoned with. An author that never disappoints me AND AN AUTO-BUY for sure.
