A Warlocks MacGregor Novel

Contemporary Scottish Magickal Romance

A little magickal mischief never hurt anyone…

Erik MacGregor, from a clan of ancient Scottish warlocks, isn’t looking for love. After centuries, it’s not even a consideration…until he moves in next door to Lydia Barratt. It’s clear that the shy beauty wants nothing to do with him, but he’s drawn to her nonetheless and determined to win her over.

Lydia Barratt just wants to be left alone to grow flowers and make lotions in her old Victorian house. The last thing she needs is a demanding Scottish man meddling in her private life. Just because he’s gorgeous and totally rocks a kilt doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for his seductive manner.

But Erik won’t give up and just as Lydia let’s her guard down, his sister decides to get involved. Her little love potion prank goes terribly wrong, making Lydia the target of his sudden embarrassingly obsessive behavior. They’ll have to find a way to pull Erik out of the spell fast when it becomes clear that Lydia has more than a lovesick warlock to worry about. Evil lurks within the shadows and it plans to use Lydia, alive or dead, to take out Erik and his clan for good.

If you like fun, paranormal romances….then you should pick this one up!
 
Now, I have never read this author before, but if all of them a filled with this fun, witty, snarky, dialog…sign me up for more of her books.  So, I was sneaking reading this one at work and there were quite a few times, that I had to stop myself from laughing out loud while reading.  Loved the part where Erik is been whammied with a love potion and he is singing outside of Lydia’s house. 
 
The book is not all fun and games though, there are some nastys out to get at not only Erik’s power, but someone is obsessed with Lydia.  This story is full of magickal beings; warlocks, witches, ghosts, and shapeshifters and though it has all these things the Author did a great job of blending them all into a cohesive world/story.
 
I loved the characters from Erik and his sexy, alpha male self to Lydia, who starts out shy and reclusive but comes into her own while dealing with Erik, his family and all the things happening around her.  Erik’s family is fun, they are like a bunch of 10 year old’s living in adult bodies…they are always up to mischief but are right there to help each other out in a crisis.  I am hoping we get to see more of Lydia’s best friend Charlotte, the poor thing gets put through the wringer in this book, so hopefully she will get a HEA.
 
Great story and I cannot wait until the next in the series!!!

Sara Jane Stone is a new author to me and she did not disappoint with Full Exposure.  I am a big fan of the best friend in love with a sibling story line.  Eric is such a sweet man.  He’s taken over the care of his nephew, Nate, and is so devoted to him.  The scenes with Nate are so adorable, I fell in love with him myself.  I haven’t read a lot of books where the heroine is former military so it was a refreshing change of pace.  You don’t hear a lot about her deployment but she is clearly still working through it.  Eric is trying to help her out by providing her with a job and a place to live.  It was inevitable that the attraction would finally break the untouchable line between them and when it does it is so hot my iPad overheated.  I am thrilled to have found a new author to add to my list.  The next one in this series is sure to be just as great.  I can’t wait for September!

Audio Review: Dare to Love

Dare To love Dare to Love by Carly Phillips

3.5 out of 5 Licks

Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. When it comes to his relatives, he gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. But one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.

Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority and she believes herself hardened to domineering men – until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and when he takes control in the bedroom, she’s stunned to discover she likes it. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.

Don’t think less of me but this was my first Carly Phillips book and I am so glad I to popped my cherry!  I can also confirm that it will definitely not be my last.  I generally only listen to audio books while I am at work or while commuting to and from work, but I couldn’t stop listening to this one.  Once I started it I couldn’t stop.  I love stories involving large families because that usually means lots more to come in the series and we all know I’m a series whore.  Ian stormed his way into Riley’s life and all but forced her to go on dinner dates with him, but he managed to stay pretty likable throughout that whole process.  Being such a dominant man is was really no surprise that he made an ass of himself a few times and came dangerously close to losing Riley, but it was her insecurities that wound up coming between them.  While in the end I warmed up to Riley she annoyed me there for a bit.  Her past left her just as untrusting as Ian was but she seemed to have a much harder time moving forward.  In the end they of course wind up happy, but it was definitely not a smooth path for the two of them.  I’m excited to read more in this series.  Alex’s story is next but I hope Olivia’s is soon!  I’m dying to hear more about what’s going on with her and Dylan.

Review: An Unsuitable Husband

21570691  An Unsuitable Husband by Ros Clarke

4 out of 5 Licks

Theresa Chartley has no time for marriage, and no room for disappointment–especially with French soccer player Emile Renaud. Sure, he’s gorgeous, but he’s wrong for a career woman like Theresa. If only her mother would stop pressuring her to get married and let her live her own life. Finding a very unsuitable husband to shock her parents into silence and put an end to the marriage campaign is the only answer. Emile will do just fine.

Theresa’s outrageous proposal is the answer to Emile’s problem. They’re complete opposites living in different worlds, but a fake marriage will let him ditch his clingy ex once and for all. Then he’ll be free of commitment and free to live his life the way he wants to.

A contract. Twelve months. And they walk away Scott free. But a year of marriage tests them both in unimaginable ways. Maybe Emile isn’t unsuitable after all, but how can Theresa let herself love him when she signed a contract to let him go?

Sexy, French Soccer Star anyone???
Well, let me say…Me! Me! Me!
Maybe I just have not found them, but I say there should be more stories about soccer players, especially ones like Emile in this story.
I liked the premise of the two different people, who seem only to have a connection of convenience.  But what starts two people attracted to each other and need each other for issues in their lives, turns into friendship and eventually love.  Even though they seem total opposites, they are a lot a like.  They are both driven to succeed in their fields, are smart, sexy and really caring people.  I liked that the author showed different sides to the characters and made me really care about what was going to happen to Theresa and Emile.  And holy crap, they are sexy together!
Other things I liked about the story, was the setting; England and a trip to Brazil.  Being from the United States, so many Authors I read are from here and I like the different setting.  I also liked that it was about Football (soccer) and American football, which is so much more widely played around the world that I thought it was a great change from more typical stories, we see here.
This was a great story, funny, smart, super sexy.  I kept me entertained and reading until it was finished.

Ricochet Excerpt Tour and Contest

SJordan-RichochetBT1 (1)

After a tragic incident in Afghanistan leaves Master Sergeant Nathan Ryker the only man standing in his tight-knit team, he spirals into an alcohol-and-sex induced escape. A call from his lifelong buddy pulls Ryker from the shadows with a request for help with his stunt company’s latest blockbuster. If Ryker can survive the next three weeks of leave and get back to his remaining men, he might just be all right. But a sexy woman who can take his mind off his trauma is too hard to resist, and when he hooks up with Renegades’ sultry, snarky office manager, his sanity takes a backseat to his first glimpse of a future he isn’t sure he deserves.

Still reeling from a bitter romantic betrayal, Rachel Hart wants nothing more than an uncomplicated hookup. So when the mysterious Nathan seduces her with a little dirty talk and one delicious kiss, Rachel drowns all her good sense in a Mandarin and soda and gives herself over to a night of sexual bliss. But her memories tarnish in the morning light when Rachel discovers his real identity and his link to Renegades. Her job and her friends are the only thing holding her life together, and she won’t be ruined by one sultry night with this damaged and dangerously sexy man.

Ryker exhaled. Chewed the inside of his cheek. While he wouldn’t be messing with the direct wording of his CO’s orders, he would be seriously stretching the spirit of his meaning, “Do whatever the hell you need to do to get your head on straight. And don’t come back until it is.”

“Ry,” Troy said, voice low. “We need you.”

His CO was eight thousand miles away. Troy was right here.

He extended his hand toward Wes. “I’ll take the plans, look them over. No promises.”

Wes grinned and handed Ryker the role of blueprints, then bumped fists with Troy behind Ryker’s back.

“I haven’t agreed,” he muttered, glancing at the title bar on the plans.

“You will.” Troy slapped him on the shoulder. “Let’s hit the mountain, dude. Celebrate.”

“Hold on.” Rachel stood and pressed her hands flat on the desk. “He’s not going anywhere. I have a ton of stuff I need from him now.”

Man, he liked the sound of that. He’d like it better if she’d meant it the way he wanted her to mean it.

Troy rounded Rachel’s desk, nudged her chair aside, and drew open the bottom drawer.

She sat back and lifted her hands. “Hello. I live here. You can’t just push me out of the way because I’m smaller than you.”

“I’d never push you out of the way, Rach.”

“What the hell do you call what you just did?”

“Nudging.”

Ryker watched the exchange with amusement. They definitely acted like siblings. Troy was pulling papers from files, shoving them back in, and annoyance mounted in Rachel’s expression.

“Troy, stop it. What are you looking for?” She slapped at his hands. “Don’t mess up my files.” When he didn’t stop, she grabbed his wrists and shoved him away. “Stop. It.

“Dude,” Wes warned, “you’re lighting matches near leaking propane.”

“God,” she breathed, frazzled, angry. “Troy Jacobs, I love you, but you are seriously pissing me off. Get the hell out of my office.”

“It’s not your office. It’s our trailer. You can’t just kick me out because I’m bigger than you.”

“Troy,” Wes said, “if I were you, I’d step out of scorching range. Our little Rachel is breathing fire today.”

Troy pressed his lips together, planted his hands on his hips, and eased back and out of Rachel’s space.

“There,” she said on a breath, sitting straighter, hands still hovering over her files in protection. “Now, what the hell are you looking for?”

“A release form.”

“Fine.” She pulled two papers from the files. “Nathan, get over here.”

He jumped to his feet and stepped up to the desk. “Yes, ma’am.”

Her eyes cut to his, expression stern, but there was heat there too, and he knew she was remembering her “Then fuck me already” order the night before.

His cock swelled, and he shifted on his feet to relieve the pressure.

“Now, that is refreshing.” She didn’t sound as approving as she did relieved, but it was still the first positive thing she’d said to him since she’d set eyes on him again. “Could you rub off on him while you’re here?”

Troy made a disgusted sound in his throat. “You have no idea—”

“Don’t.” Ryker shot Troy a glare that promised pain. “Even.”

Rachel clicked a pen on the desk and pointed to the paper on the right. “Release form—if you kill yourself, it’s your own stupid fault.” Then to the one on the left. “Emergency contact—the person we call to tell them how stupid you were.”

Ryker grinned as he scribbled his signature and the basic information into the blanks. He liked her more by the minute. Wanted her more by the second.

Same Book Different Review (Excerpt 11)
joanswan-skyejordan_headshot

Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan.

 

Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

 

And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.

 

Skye (aka Joan) lives on the central coast of California in the heart of wine country with her husband and two daughters. As often as possible, she retreats to a hotel with critique partners for a power-writing week where much drinking, laughing, and yes, even working, ensues. When she’s not writing, Skye goes to breakfast with her hubby, attends her daughters’ barrel races, and spends a lot of time with her own horse, Riddle…while her two dogs, Paxton and Indie, tag along. She also loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.

Review: Addicted

Addicted Addicted by Tracy Wolff

2.5 out of 5 Licks

As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.

Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.

But that’s not why I’m with him.

I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.

But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?

Honestly I’m not sure I liked this story over all. I’m assuming this would be classified as a NA book, which would explain all the whining that comes from Chloe.  I think the problem is NA is just not my thing.  It’s like YA just with sex-way too much angst and annoying characters.  It is hot at times but overall I needed more story and more connection between Chloe and Ethan.  It felt like Ethan was just throwing gifts at Chloe to get her to like him.  That feeling was slightly addressed in the book but there wasn’t really a resolution.  This book is a continuation of Ruined.  After reading Ruined and suffering through the cliffhanger, I wanted to know where the relationship between them would go.  I was hopeful I would be sucked in but I just wasn’t. The ending was rather rushed and I feel like many of the issues were unresolved.  Mostly the issue was the characters did nothing but fight and have sex.  Overall I needed a lot more talking and less wallowing.

Audio Review: Night Is Darkest

NightIsDarkestFulleSize-300x300 Night Is Darkest by Jayne Rylon

4 out of 5 Licks

Some secrets refuse to stay hidden.

Lacey Daughtry’s perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother’s murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother’s best friends and fellow officers for protection…and comfort.

Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she’s dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she’s harbored for so long.

But the partners are holding out on Lacey. Determined to suppress the most extreme facets of their lust, they agree to settle for sharing the woman they crave while concealing their desire for each other. Until Lacey cracks their resolve, unleashing a torrent of emotions that threatens to distract them when they can least afford it.

Their blossoming relationship is complicated by secrets. And the only way to evade the killer threatening their lives is to bare their souls in the darkest hours of the night. Or everything will come crashing down, just before the dawn.

Warning: After reading this book you’ll never look at a pair of hot cops, a cemetery or a can of Spaghetti-O’s the same way again.

I read this eBook a few years ago close to the release date.  I already know I love this series, but I knew listening to Gregory Salinas read it to me would make it even better!  As always that man makes everything sound so damn sexy!  I love going back through a book I’ve already read before.  I always find new reasons to love the book.  It starts off so freaking sad.  I cried for the first bit, but the sexy stuff comes soon enough and it’s quickly followed by action and drama.  Mason and his crazy stubbornness just about killed me.  I found myself wanting to both jump him and ring his neck constantly throughout the book.  There are lots of twists and turns going on in this book.  While I did remember who was behind all the craziness and bad things that happened the story was compelling enough to suck me in all over again.  I can’t wait to listen to the audio versions of the rest in this series!

Review: Intoxicated

Intoxicated-chsn-237x383 Intoxicated by Monica Murphy

3 out of 5 Licks

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy wraps up her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series with a wedding to remember. But this time, they’re not bachelors anymore, and the groom … is one of them.

It’s Gage and Marina’s wedding day, but wedded bliss seems a long way off: Ivy’s just gone into labor. Marina’s missing her matron of honor. And Bryn’s giving Matt the silent treatment.

It’s up to Archer, Gage, and Matt to make sure this day goes off without a hitch. But between brides and babies, there’s the not-so-little issue of the million-dollar bet to attend to. If only they can figure out who won … and who’s paying up. Is everyone a winner? Or will someone leave broke—and brokenhearted?

I previously reviewed the first three books in this series so of course I had to read the last to find out how they wrap up the bet. This story is told from all 6 characters point of views.  I really liked that we were able to get in everyone’s head.  I’m nosy and I love knowing what they are all thinking.  This book starts with a bang.  Ivy is in labor and it’s Gage and Marina’s wedding day.  Almost all of the characters have become likable to me over the first three books, but Marina really tested my patience in this book.  I get that it’s her wedding and that is a stressful time but she came across as a big she clearly went more than a little crazy for a little while.  By the end though she seemed to go back to being herself.  Before the reception is over Bryn seems to catch a bit of the crazy from Marina and goes a little wonky herself.  But all ends well for this happy little group.  We even get to find out how the bet ended.  I’m not going to tell you how, but needless to say Matt manages to come out smelling like roses in the process.  Overall this is a great little quickie that gives a nice resolution to the bet story line and a peek into how the couples are faring now.
