 Release Date: September 2, 2015


Billionaire Hunter Knox comes straight up – with a side of trouble.Heir to a bourbon fortune, he’s hired my ad agency to save his family business. It’s my chance to win a star client and prove I can play with the big boys, until my one-night stand comes back to haunt me like the ultimate hangover.

I’m going to need another drink.

Author Lila Monroe Billionaire with a Twist teaser 9.2.15



We were both whispering. I wasn’t sure why; the house was so big that we might as well have been in another county as far as the staff were concerned. But the darkness and the secrecy and the soft touches somehow made this moment illicit and stolen and not to be spoken aloud.

“I trust you,” I murmured.

There was a pause as Hunter took in my words. “Thank you,” he finally said.

My hand was still on his. As if they had a will of their own, my fingers began to stroke his palm—I blushed, glad that the poor light would hide it, and pulled away under the pretense of selecting a snack.

The tin was small, but it held a solid assortment of sweets, dried jerky, and home-made trail mix. I chose a chocolate in a bright green foil and unwrapped it, the foil rustling like a secret waiting to be told. When I bit down, a sweet cognac liquor burst across my taste buds, and I couldn’t keep from groaning in ecstasy.

Hunter laughed.

“Hey, you try eating this and not expressing your appreciation!” I shot back at him in a whisper, waving the chocolate in his face.

He raised an eyebrow at me, and then he bit right down on the chocolate in my hand, his soft lips just moistening the tips of my fingers.

I froze.

His rakish grin set my blood on fire as he leaned forward and carefully licked a smudge of chocolate from my thumb.

Calling all doctors, calling all doctors, Allison Bartlett’s heart has just stopped cold.

Hell's Flower Cover


button synopsis

Two people.
That’s how it usually starts right? I grew up believing one thing, only for one day to completely mess up everything I’ve ever been taught. Was I a good girl? No, not by any means. But, the world I’m about to be thrown into is unlike anything I’ve ever known.

Multiple people.
I live for club life. As the President of the Hell’s Storm MC I protect my brothers at all costs, and they do the same for me. After a rival club killed what was mine, I vowed to live in as many chicks as possible. Never tasting the same one twice. But, all it takes is that one look to completely bring a man, even me, to my knees. Two people. Brought up on different sides of the tracks. Two different paths in life. Both will be tested, taken to the very edge of darkness that threatens to consume them both. Will they be able to withstand the heat of hell? Or will they fight to death and lose themselves?

 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                        Wow! I just got finished reading The Prince of Punk Rock and I really enjoyed this very HOT read by Jenna Galicki. If you decide that you would like to read this book be warned there is some very HOT male on male action. Tommy Blade is married to Jessie and he is bisexual. He finds that he has fallen in love with the lead singer Angel Garcia in the Immortal Angel band. Jessie has known that Tommie was bi and she wants to keep her man so she lets Angel in their marriage and finds she is falling in love with Angel. But, Angel is gay and really wants no part of Jessie sexually although, they do fool around a bit. I do feel that Jessie has to keep making concessions in her marriage because she doesn’t want to lose Tommy and I hope that she actually becomes a stronger person in the next book. That is enough of the story telling because I don’t do spoilers but, you should get the drift.I really liked the story and lord knows The Prince of Punk Rock is a VERY HOT read! I had to fan myself a few times because it is very steamy! The book ends on a little cliffie (not a major one) Fortunately for me I am ready to get started reading book 2 in the Radical Rock Stars Series and it is out and ready for me to start. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review and I give The Prince of Punk Rock 4.5 stars. Now it is time for me to start reading “Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars Book 2).                                 Nikki K’s 4.5 Star Review                                                                             The Prince of Punk Rock tells a story of unconventional love, jealousy, and friendship. Sometimes being in love with someone means loving them and trusting them enough to allow someone else to share their heart and your bed. Jesse sees that Tommy loves her, but she also sees he needs more. 

Never wanting to label Tommy’s sexual proclivities, Jesse suggests bringing in a third to feed Tommy’s hunger. Not until Tommy joins the band Immortal Angel, do they realize his true nature is bisexual. Joining this Punk Rock band fills more than Tommy’s musical soul, it fills the empty part of his heart. The part that only Angel can fill. 

As a lover of both Rocker Romance and M/M, I was hooked by this book. Author Jenna Galicki has written a sexy, yet difficult story. The emotions, this book elicit run the gamut from lust to hate. More than once I was moved to tears by the turmoil ever present in the lives of this open-minded trio.

I really enjoyed The Price of Punk Rock and the underlying theme of love, trust, and tolerance. I rate this book a 4.5.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                          Tommy is in a band. Tommy is bisexual, and his wife Jessi allows him to enjoy other men. Her rule is the encounters can only be one-night stands. Only she can have his heart. This arrangement seems to work for them, and it’s their secret. Through certain circumstances, Angel Garcia enters their lives, and nothing is the same. Tommy is immediately attracted to Angel, and the feeling is mutual. Jessi sees this isn’t like Tommy’s usual hook-ups. She sees Angel as a threat to their marriage, and is not happy about him being around. Until she finds herself falling for the loud and proud rocker.

A marriage with two people is tough enough, add a third, and it’s even tougher. Through all the ups and downs, these three people discover things about themselves and each other. Maybe they were meant to be together. I really enjoy reading M/M books, and this one was definitely different. I liked the rocker storyline. And the sex was really, really hot!

The Prince of Punk Rock is the first book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                       Lita’s Review: 3.0 stars                                                                                            The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Star #1) by Jenna Galicki

Book one introduces the readers to Tommy Blade and his wife Jessi. Tommy is a gifted guitarist and is able to fulfill his dream of playing in a band due to wife. Jessi is the rock of the family and has done everything she can to make Tommy’s dream come true. She is his biggest cheerleader so much so she is the only one with a job and even quit fashion school in her last semester. Jessi is the only woman he has ever been with and loves her dearly, however Tommy likes sleeping with men.  When a new band is looking for a new guitarist Tommy ends up playing for Immortal Angels. The front man for the band is charismatic Angel Garcia and he is openly gay. Angel has an eye for Tommy and their chemistry on stage is something to behold. They both feel the electricity between each other and they definitely want to explore their relationship. Because Jessi loves Tommy so much she has given her blessings to bring Angel not only into their bed but their family. This is their story. It is a strange and emotionally taxing relationship considering Jessi loves Tommy with all her heart and likes Angel physically, Tommy loves both Jessi and Angel physically and emotionally and because he is truly gay he loves Tommy to the utmost but Jessi physically he cannot stand the touch of her but loves her emotionally. This is their struggle especially for Tommy who is stuck in the middle. I can say I struggle with what Jessi was willing to endure to make Tommy happy. Definitely could not get next to what she put up with but I can say the author’s graphic scenes between the 3 of them was something. I give this story 3 stars.          


 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              Let me just say I am really enjoying reading the Radical Rock Stars Series. What you need to know is that this is a menage book with MMF, MF, MM erotic romance. If this isn’t what you like to read then don’t buy the book.Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the continuation of Tommy & Jessie Blade & Angel Garcia. Theirs is not a typical relationship. Tommy is bisexual and married to Jessie. Angel is the third in their marriage. Angel is gay he really doesn’t want to do much with Jessie although he has fooled around a little with her too and actually more in this book than in the first book in this series. What they find is that it isn’t easy to make a relationship like this work. They all have to get on the same page and all 3 have to work at making this relationship arrangement work. Oh and while they are working on their marriage the sexual encounters are Hot, Hot, Hot! Between a Rock and a Hard Place is about conflicts & jealousy. Life is full of “tough choices” and the 3 or them have to work at keeping their relationship intact. I can see why this might be a problem. I got my HEA although, their story will continue in Punk Rock Resurrection. I received a complimentary copy of Between a Rock and a Hard Place for an honest review and I give this story 4.5 stars.    

Nikki K’s Review: 4 Stars

The Sexy Trio of Jesse, Tommy, and Angel return in the 2nd edition of Radical Rock Stars Series. 

Immortal Angel has hit the big time. Tommy, Angel and the rest of Immortal Angel are about to embark on their first World Tour. Jesse has been a part of Tommy’s musical career since the beginning.  She has given up her dreams to help him pursue his.  The only problem is, Angel was never HER dream.

When Jesse realizes her unique fashions for the band have sparked interest with the public, she decides it’s her turn. Rather then following Tommy and Angel to Asia, Jesse follows her dream. She returns to college to get her degree in Fashion design. Will Jesse’s step towards her goal of opening her own boutique and designing her own line of clothing cause a rift between her and Tommy? Or will it bring them closer?

Author Jenna Galicki has once again infused heavy emotions with deep desire certain to keep the reader wanting more. The Love affair between Tommy and Jesse is stressed in this edition and Jenna shows the ugly side of poly relationships. That being said, the sex scenes in Between a Rock and a Hard Place left me needing to be near a hard place 😉 

If like me you are into tatted, sexy rocker dudes, and emotional rollercoasters, then this book is sure to strike a chord. 

I really enjoy reading about Jenna’s punk rockers and I give this book 4 stars. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 stars                                                                        And so the story from The Prince of Punk Rock continues. The band’s success continues, and they’re about to go on a world tour. Bad news: Jessi has to miss the beginning of this tour, and that means Tommy and Angel are on their own.

When Jessi makes it back to the guys, they’ve got their groove and routine going, and Jessi feels out of place. She doesn’t like it, and is resentful of the relationship. Angel does his best to keep everyone happy, but sometimes fails miserably. Anything worth having usually takes a lot of work. For me, this book was way more emotional. You get to really see and feel their struggles, worries, but there is some fun. After all, they are rockers!! On top of their burgeoning superstar status, can they really handle all the work this relationship will no doubt require?

Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the second book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                      Lita’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                       Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock #2) by Jenna Galicki

Bok 2 is a continuation of their story. Immortal Angels has made it big and is getting ready to embark on a tour of Asia. There is one problem Jessi will not be able to make the tour since she has decided to do something for herself. She has went back to finish her fashion degree and wants to open her own store with her own creations. While at home in the States she has to deal with being home trying to focus on her schooling she has to endure photos in the papers with captions insinuating things regarding Tommy and Angel being together without their wife. Once she joins the European part of their world tour the pressures of getting her store open, still helping with working with the band and her insecurities of the time Angel and Tommy spent together are taking a toll on their relationship. Than when the band’s new manager is putting pressure on them to cut an album while on tour which leaves Jessi by herself while Angel and Tommy are forced to spent more time without her she is almost at wits end. When she is told there are issues at her store she goes back to the States without telling Tommy she was leaving. This action causes a chain reaction that could destroy the band in the middle of the tour and the album. This is what they go through to save their family. There are more graphic sex scenes between the 3 of them and they are quite hot. I give this story 3.5 stars.


Tanya’s Review:  4.5 stars                                                                        Wow I just finished reading Punk Rock Resurrection. This is Damian Hardy & Alyss Taylor story. I really felt for Damian Hardy. He later changes his name and you will see why once you read this book. He had a horrible life growing up with a mother that never loved him and felt he was an imposition. His mother kicked him out on his 18th birthday. Alyssa is one bad a** woman. She is a strong woman and I loved her character. And, the story continues from there. I can’t say more because I don’t do spoilers. At least I don’t intend to. Damian is really a very nice guy with a lot of anguish! Oh and really “Elvira” I loved her. (I can’t say who or what she is because again no spoilers).I really enjoyed reading this book. And as Jenna said you could read it as a standalone but, why would you because you will understand more about the characters that were written in the first 2 books. #1The Prince of Punk Rock and #2Between A Rock and A Hard Place. This book originally was an ARC for me. But, when I found out it was also on Kindle Unlimited I also got it through Amazon so that it could be a verified purchase. Anything to help out our Author friends. I give Punk Rock Resurrection 4.5 stars.

Oh and another book will be out soon by Jenna Galicki: Radical Rock Stars, Book 4 and this one is about Jimmy Wilder Coming Fall 2015. 🙂                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Theresa’s Review: 4.0 stars                                                               Damien Diamond is the bassist for Immortal Angels. He had a rough upbringing, and until Angel helps pull him from his black hole of drugs and alcohol, he was still having a hard time with life.

Alyssa is exactly what Damien needs; someone who isn’t impressed with his persona and will tell him exactly what’s on her mind. She sees him for who he really is, not that hardened, badass bassist. Without giving too much away, Alyssa allows Damien to put his tough act on the shelf for a bit while she manages things. He’s been through so much, and he finally finds a way to deal with his past without chemical dependency.

More hot sex and a really good story line. You get to see where Immortal Angels began. I kinda hoped Damien was getting his own story when I read the previous books in this series, and I was pleased to find out he did.

Out of the entire series, this is definitely my favorite. Punk Rock Resurrection is the third book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 4 stars.                                                                                                                                                    Lita’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              

Punk Rock Resurrection (Radical Rock Star #3) by Jenna GalickiBook 3 is the story of Immortal Angels bass guitarist Damian Diamond and how he met Angel, his wife and why his wife will leave him if he gets back involved with drugs and alcohol. Damian has had a hard life. Growing up he had to endure an alcoholic mother who was distant and cold. She was emotionally and physically abusive. At a certain age his only salvation was a bass guitar which he worked for at the local music store and used as a life preserver in a life of hell. Unfortunately he also found his mother’s pills and alcohol as a way to deal with the pain. Once his mother put him out at the age of 18 he found himself living on the streets. It was on the streets his friendship with Angel had been cemented. Playing the bass for the Immortal Angels, his friendship with Angel and his job at the tattoo parlor where he worked was all he had in his life. One day while at his job at the Tattoo parlor the new piercer show up Alyssa. Damian is smitten with her. This is his story of how he made Alyssa his wife and how he was able to get clean. Damian is a heart wrenching story when you learn what he had to endure and the head trips his mother placed on him. My heart went out to him and I loved his journey to finding love with Alyssa. I can say I enjoyed this book the best out of the 3 and I am looking forward to the next book which is the drummer’s story Jimmy. I give this story 4.5 Stars.    

  Nikki K’s review: 4.0 OOOO’s (O’s for Orgasms)

PUNK ROCK RESURRECTION Radical Rock Stars: Book Three Author: Jenna Galicki The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” certainly works for Damien Hardy. His PUNK ROCK image would lead one to think he is no more than a rebellious irresponsible punk. In reality he is a sweet, gentle musician who happens to like blue mohawks and the Ramones. Damien’s childhood was lacking in many ways but most of all in love. Never did he ever think love would be a factor in his life, unless you’re talking about the love of his bass guitar. Alyssa Taylor is a goth goddess with a sadistic sensibility. A one time nursing student, she finds she has a penchant for sticking people with needles. Realizing her talents are better served in a nontraditional profession, Alyssa embarks on a career as a piercer in a Tattoo studio. The same studio that Damien works in for tips and free ink. As a free spirit, Alyssa was not looking for love or a relationship, but she didn’t run from it when she found it. As soon as the two meet, it’s instant chemistry. Never is the question “if”, but only “when”?! When will their punk and goth worlds collide? Will they be able to overcome Damien’s demon’s from his past. Is Alyssa able to overlook the black heart displayed on his chest in favor of the living man beneath the colorful surface? My only critique is that the level of pain and torment that Damien displays seems disproportionate to the details we are given of his past. I know it is macabre to say I was looking for the real pain to be brought to the surface, but that’s what I did. I would have liked a more detailed account of the real abuse he suffered. It would have made his actions more understandable. However, the depth of his emotional state is very evident and his need for love and acceptance is heartbreaking. Overall I enjoyed the story of Alyssa and Damien’s blossoming love. While I love the “Alpha males”, seeing a vulnerable man able to let his submissive side be shown was hot. When he allows Alyssa to take command of their sex life, I must admit to being nearly as excited as Damien. If you like hot tattooed rockers, kinky sex and a Domme with a soft side, you’ll really enjoy Punk Rock Resurrection. ** I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Letters Home by Rebecca Brooke

Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture.

Irons by MJ Fields 

Jax I was born and bred to be the man I am today. My father and his father were both graduates from The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Both went on to become helicopter pilots. Both had seen plenty of action. Both had met and caused devastation. Both men, who I respect more above all, had served and protected the United States and her people honorably for decades.

My best friend, William Cruz, who attended the academy with me, had flown beside me, had lived the same life as I had and shared the same ambitions in life, was gone now. This was not part of the plan. Will and I were supposed to have each other’s backs, support each other and never let anything supersede our bond.


I sat on Norfolk Beach needing to feel close to him on the anniversary of his death. It was a beautiful day in May and I was cutting class. I had done the same every year since he passed.

Jaxson Irons was only supposed to be in Pensacola for a year. But now three years later I still hadn’t heard from him. I saw a man running down the beach and I knew immediately who it was.

Jaxson didn’t respond the way I had dreamed he would. He told me we would catch up someday soon. I stood and watched until he was gone.

Thump, thump. I placed my hand on my chest as I felt my heart beat again for what felt like the first time in three years. Thump, thump. I felt the blood moving quickly through my body. It’s heat once again present. Thump, thump. I looked up at the sky and let out a breath. A breath that I had been holding forever. Thump, thump.

I felt tears fall down my face as I raised my hands in the air and laughed out loud.

❃ ❃ ❃ ❃ ❃


NewlyExposedAdam James is a corn-fed, Nebraska raised, piece of man meat with a chiseled body and baby face. He is in desperate need of a paycheck and will do just about anything to get one, including stripping down to his skivvies and lathering up in baby oil.

Solo Cohan is a quirky hipster with a strong work ethic,raised by two gay dads who are head over heels in love with Harrison Ford and Star Wars, hence the name, Solo. She works for Teeg Model Management, the same modeling agency that decides to book Adam as their next up and coming model. Sparks ignite between her and Adam the minute her baby oil soaked hand connects with his practically naked body.

Even though Solo can’t stop thinking about Adam during photo shoots, she quickly and awkwardly, shows Adam her distaste for male models and her inability to engage romantically with them. Adam is captivated by her nerdy talk and peculiar tendencies and sets out to make it his mission to turn the Star Wars loving hipster to the dark side, where mingling with models is widely arousing.

Review by Tanya: 5.0+ stars                                                                              I know you must hear this often Meghan Quinn! But, you knocked this book out of the ball park again for me. I am a faithful follower of your books. You write a book with amazing humor & sex appeal. I am working my way through her books.

Wow! what an interview Adam James had for a modeling job! He really needs money and he doesn’t want to say why. Apparently willing to do almost anything. Meghan ~ “Just-In Beaver” & cannolied really? Hehe! Remember I said that Meghan writes with a lot of humor.

I love how endearing Adam is. I mean who wouldn’t want him! Adam is only 20 years old, raised in Nebraska. He meets Solo Cohan who also works for the modeling agency in a Solo has 2 dads that raised her and they were you guessed it Star War & Harrison Ford fans. Solo has been hurt before and guards her heart which Adam is determined to break down. Because of the hurt she has to keep apologizing to Adam because she has a hard time trusting. Now no more I can’t give the story away because you really need to read this book. Oh and did I say it is HOT! Well it is!

If I could give Meghan Quinn more than 5 stars for Newly Exposed I would but, since I can’t 5 stars will just have to do. I received a complimentary copy for an honest review. I can’t wait to read more books by Meghan Quinn.
Review by Lisa G. 4 yummy Cinnamon Buns also known as Stars                                                                                                                                   Arc provided in Exchange for an honest review.

This was my first book by Meghan Quinn and she did not disappoint. This book was a breath of fresh air.  I loved the “geeky” references that not only made me smile but at times I also laughed out loud. You’ll read about everything from Star Wars, to Mahjong to Ninja Turtles, to Just – In Beaver! …. AND the Cinnamon buns, my goodness the Cinnamon buns!

Adam “Axel” is new in the male modeling world, he sign up because he needed the money, desperately – this sweet, innocent – all American good hearted boy would blush at lifting his shirt for a picture.  The innocence of him alone makes you fall in love with him. HOWEVER, get Adam in the bedroom and you meet a different man:

“I leaned down and ran the tip of my nose along her jaw until I reached her ear, where I said “Clearly, I’ve been giving you the wrong impression of me then”” Hot Damn!!!!

Solo’s job is to be in charge of the models – she does not date them or trust them and for good reason.  Solo, you guessed it, was named after Star Wars, by her two gay dads (oh her dads – I LOVE THEM!!!). She immediately sees that Adam is different and lends a helping hand, literally! Solo had some trust issues and growing up to do – I few times I wanted to reach into the book and strangle her, yet you couldn’t help but to love her.

One of my favorite quotes from the book: “Isn’t this what love is? A constant battle of your heart connecting with another’s? Love isn’t easy; it’s not a walk in the park. Fight until you take you last breath, because if you don’t, you will forever regret losing the battle.”

Enough said…

4 yummy Cinnamon buns!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Review by Lita  4.0 stars                                                                        Newly Exposed by Megan Quinn. Adam is in need of money and he needs a lot of it and quick.  Nebraska born and fed he goes on a casting call to be a fitness model. He has all it takes to be a model tall, good looking, a nice body and the infamous V. He gets the job but he is a fish out of water. Los Angeles is something new and strange when you someone from Middle America. Solo is part of Duo the team that runs the models of Teeg Modeling Agency. She is not like most Los Angeles woman, she marches to the beat of her own drum. Being raised by 2 gay fathers who have a love for Harrison Ford, Star wars and Hans Solo. Even though she maybe a geek and her style of dress is strange she is a beauty. All the models have a thing for but she has a rule that she does not date models. Adam is different and the attraction between the two is undeniable. He really likes her and she likes him but doesn’t want to care for him. Adam is different than all the other models and his persistence is working on Solo. They have so many things in common especially Star Wars and Adam gets her. Adam is struggling in his new world and Solo knows how to get him to relax to get the shots needed to propel him to becoming a star. Theirs is a sweet but rocky journey. Even though Solo is a natural beauty with a banging body she still has many insecurities that mess with her budding relationship with Adam. A really enjoyable story that made me laugh and cry. A story that put a smile on my face and Adam was as sweet as he needed to be and would make any woman melt. I give  this story 4 Stars

She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

I run, as fast as I can. I’m not athletic. I don’t play sports. I know he’s going to catch me. That’s what I want, right? For him to catch me?My legs feel like jelly. I feel his hand graze my arms once, twice, then I’m caught. I should have started running sooner, faster. It doesn’t matter. He would have caught me regardless.

“You shouldn’t have let me catch you, Gracie.” He pulls me back into his chest, lifting my feet off the ground, as the meaning behind his words begins to register.

“Who says I let you?” I know challenging him isn’t a good idea, but I haven’t learned how to filter my thoughts around him.

“I do. I know you can run faster than that. I think you wanted me to catch you.”

“Really?” I say, struggling to break from his hold. It’s no use. He’s much stronger than me and since he’s holding me off the ground, I can’t use my legs for leverage.

“Yes, really. I think you knew what would happen when I caught you.”

“And what is that?” I begin to struggle again and this time he lets me break free, but I don’t get far. Two steps, maybe, before he’s got a hold of my wrist and is pulling me back to him. This time we are chest to chest. I crash into the front of him and can’t hide the way my body reacts. I’m sure he can see it, feel it. My breathing is ragged and it’s not from running.

“Look at me, Gracie,” he commands and I do as he says. Not because I want to but because my body wants to.

“Why do you insist on calling me that? It’s not my name, you know?” I love it, though. I would never tell him that, or anyone else.

“Because. You’re my angel fallen from grace. It suits you. You’re beautiful and you know it. What I don’t understand is why you want me?”

“Who says I want you?”

How the hell did he figure it out? No one knows.

“Your body says a lot of things. It’s telling me right now how much you want me. The question is – what exactly do you want from me because there are a few things that I can offer you.” He wraps his arms around me a little tighter as I contemplate how I want to answer him.

The ache in Gregory’s knees brought him closer to God. Hunger gnawed at his belly and reminded him of his connection with the Lord. For three days, he had fasted and prayed, waited for God to show him the way to enter into service. God remained silent.

He must pray harder and keep at it until he had his answer. God’s way was not always the way of man and His divine timing did not always answer the impetuous call of sinners.

Something clattered through the bars of his cell.

Gregory started, but kept his eyes closed. He could afford no distractions in his wait for God to deign to speak with him. Sweat broke out on his brow. He bowed his head. “Dear Father in Heaven…”

Another skittering across the floor and Gregory opened his eyes.

A pebble lay almost within reach at his knees, a pale trespasser against the dark stone floor of his bare cell. A thin pallet rested against one wall, stripped of linen except for a rough blanket. On the opposite wall a tiny barred window overlooked the fields were they worked each day. Above it, a stark wooden cross served as a reminder that all here was by Grace alone. Beneath the casement stood a plain wood table and a bench.

The Abbey bell tolled Terce over the undulating chant of the monks reciting the second of the Little Hours of the Divine Office. Father Abbott had understood his need for private meditation, but he would be expected at Lauds.


Not God at all, unless the Almighty had grown a set of large hands and gripped the bars of his cell so tightly His knuckles turned white.

A dark head popped over the lip, followed by dark eyebrows and the sharply drawn planes of a face many a lass considered handsome.

“Garrett?” Gregory’s knees creaked as he rose. Sharp pain lanced through his long-frozen muscles. Three days, most of which spent on your knees, would turn any man’s limbs into a grandfather’s. “Is that you?”

“Aye?” Garrett blinked away a sweat droplet that snaked down his brow and into his eye. His face turned redder. “Only could you come down, I am not sure how much longer I can hang on.”

“Did you climb the side?”

Teeth clenched, Garret said, “Aye and I am about to go tumbling on my ass, so get down here.”

Garrett’s head disappeared from view as he scrabbled down the side of the two-story dormitory.

If Garrett was here, something was amiss at Anglesea. Sir Arthur might have sent him with news. My Lady Faye. His blood thrummed in his ears. Fresh sweat prickled over his skin as he wrenched open his door and trotted down the empty corridor. He took the stairs three at a time. Unease spurred him into a run.

From the chapel the monk’s voices called and responded in prayer as he entered the kitchen yard. Singing voices reminded him he had left his former life behind, but he needed to check all was well.

Garrett appeared out of the dark shadows around the dormitory.

The smell of incense hung heavy in the air.

“What is it?” Gregory closed the distance between them.

Garrett’s expression was grim, his shoulders tense. “You must come.”

“To Anglesea?”

“Aye.” Garrett turned and motioned him to follow.

Gregory took a step and froze. He couldn’t go with Garrett. Outside these walls was not his life anymore. His calling lay here at the Abbey. “I cannot.”

Sharp strides driving divots into the soft, bare earth, Garrett strode back to him. “You must come. Sir Arthur sent me for you.”

Sir Arthur would not have sent for him if it weren’t urgent. Sir Arthur had sponsored him as a postulant to the Abbey and he owed the man for that. But he owed God his obedience and he had put his former life aside. “My place is here now.”

“Your place is where you are needed.” Movements sharp and jerky, Garrett gestured to outside the Abbey.

He didn’t want to ask the question. It did not concern him. Yet, his stubborn gut demanded an answer. “What has happened?”

Garrett clasped his arm. “It is Faye.”

“What?” His muscles bunched in response. The words rasped from his throat. Dear Father, please do not let her be…

What? Hurt, or worse, reconciled with Calder. He grabbed the other man’s tunic, twisting his hand in the fabric.

Garrett shrugged him off. “I will explain as we ride.”

He couldn’t go. He couldn’t not go. Again, the same tussle within him. Faye or the Abbey, his lady versus his God. It never ended.

Garrett stepped closer until his face was inches away. “Beatrice is worrying herself sick. She carries our first child and if I have to tie your saintly ass on a horse, you are coming with me. Faye needs you.”

Faye needed him. The confusion cleared. It was all Garrett need say. Clean, crisp purpose flooded his being. “Do you have a horse for me?”

Garrett’s grim face softened into a smile. “Come on, before one of your monks catches sight of me and tosses me in there.”

Release Day – Under My Skin by J. Kenner


Jackson and Sylvia are back in the third and final part of J. Kenner’s sizzling erotic trilogy. You definitely don’t want to miss how their story ends!

undermyskinAbout UNDER MY SKIN

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks are back in the powerful finale of a provocative, sizzling-hot new erotic trilogy set in the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, andComplete Me.

He’s the only man I’ve ever loved, and the one man I can’t bear to lose.

Jackson Steele is my light in this world. Charismatic, bold, and always in control, he knows what he wants and how to get it—and absolutely nothing stands in his way. His hold on me is magnetic, his claim on me complete, his kiss my ultimate escape.

We both harbor dark secrets that could tear our lives apart. Though we’ve tried to bury our pasts, there are certain people who won’t let us forget. But the closer danger comes, the brighter the fire between us burns—our ecstasy consuming and soothing us both.

There’s no telling what lies ahead, but I know that Jackson never gives in without a fight. I’d do anything he wants to keep him safe, give him anything he needs. And now that we’re in deep, nothing can make me run.

Under My Skin is intended for mature audiences.

Nikki K’s Review

This couple has gone through hell to be together, and they prove once again in Under My Skin that nothing can stand in their way. The revelation of secrets in the first story threatened to tear them apart, and in this edition, the threat of those secrets going public pushes their limits, but their love is one for the ages.

Jackson and Sylvia continue to have a sex life that makes me swoon. Sylvia is able to give more of herself over to Jackson, and he willingly accepts. When life gets too dark and intense, they lock the world out and find solace in each others arms.
One of the reasons I am drawn to the Stark Novels is the intrigue wrapped up in the love story. And this book does not disappoint.

That being said, I have to admit I enjoyed Say My Name more than this book. However, this is still a good read. I must also confess, I have not read the second book as I did not have time to fit it in prior to reading this one. While I may have missed some details from the second book, It was very easy for me to follow the storyline.

Throughout the book, I found myself having aha moments plot points from the trilogy are revealed and questions answered. J Kenner has done a superb job of tying up all of the loose ends and leaving no stone unturned. I thank the author for finishing this trilogy as she did; it ended as I would have hoped.

I rate this book a solid 4 stars and recommend it to anyone with a penchant for angsty, sexy love stories.

She slams the door shut, the limo pulls back out onto the street, and I am left beside Jackson who sits perfectly, dangerously still.

I swallow, my skin prickling from the rising heat.

I’m breathing hard, my breasts rising and falling. My skin is warm, and beads of perspiration have gathered at the nape of my neck.

He turns his head slowly, his eyes meeting mine, wild and feral and hard. There’s a hungry glint to them, and for a moment I fear that he will tear me to pieces. That I will truly stand as proxy for the bastards who leaked the news. For the fear that I know must be consuming him, just as it is consuming me.

But haven’t I repeatedly told him that I can handle it, no matter how bad it gets? That I will be his release valve, his safety net?

That I’ll willingly take in his pain—and then we’ll turn it around into passion.

I am still holding his gaze, and I feel locked in place simply from the force of his will. He has not touched me, and though we haven’t spoken, I know that he will not until I acquiesce. Not tonight. Not when he needs to push. To go as far as he needs, and then some.

“Yes,” I say.

A muscle twitches in his cheek, but he doesn’t otherwise move, nor does he say a word to me. He simply watches me for one beat, then another. It is as if he is sizing me up, testing my resolve. I stay where I am, looking back at him. But slowly—very slowly—I part my thighs.

Jackson sucks in a breath through his nose. Then he twists at the waist so that he can reach the intercom button. He jams his finger down on it.

“Don’t go home, Edward.” His voice is hard. Tight with control. “Just drive. I don’t care where. Just drive until I tell you to stop.”

Author: Amélie S. Duncan

Genre: erotic romance

Releases September 8th

Lily loves Jonas, but implicit trust is another matter. After all they’ve been through, she still can’t believe he’ll stay no matter how deep or dark her secrets are. With her ex, Declan, up to his worst, Lily’s embarrassed and ashamed…but she’s once again underestimated Jonas. He has brains as well as beauty. With the same ruthlessness he uses to dispatch his business rivals, he vows to annihilate Declan.  

Lily is glad to relinquish control. Jonas is determined to personally oversee her recovery and she lets him. She’s still too weak to deal with the chaos that’s become her life. Jonas whisks her away to a secluded luxury loft in Tribeca and pampers her with sensual decadence. Every caress, every lingering honey-sweet kiss they share says he loves her—even the way he possesses her body in the sultry heat of the night…but will Jonas commit? Will he ever be able to say those three little words she craves to hear from him?

Yes Shannon and I were the lucky ones and got to read Tiger Lily already!
Tanya’s Review: 5.0 ★★★★★

Tiger Lily is the wondrous story about of course Tiger Lily. I have loved each story in this Trilogy.

The story with Jonas & Lily continues in the last book of this trilogy. I have to say that I love all the characters that Amélie S. Duncan has written in Tiger Lily. Well almost all. Isn’t there always someone you love to hate in a story! Well of course there are 2 not very nice people and one of them is Declan, Lily’s ex-fiancé. And, the other person I can’t say because you just need to read this book. But, you as the reader will need to start at the beginning. With Tiger Lily #1. This book is not a stand alone!

I always take some notes while reading so I won’t forget about them and here are a few of my notes that I took.

→I now need to read Mary’s & Ian’s Story! And, Mary can stop pretending she isn’t interested in Ian! Amélie please write more so I will know their story.

→I love that Dani (ex wife to Jonas & mother to Paul) can be such good friends with Lily & Jonas.

→Paul is such a charmer just like dad.

Anyway I hope those were little teases will make you curious and you will want to read this series and of course Tiger Lily #3.

This ARC was a complementary gift for an honest review. I love this author and I hope that you will love Tiger Lily as much as I did. I can’t wait to read more books by Amélie S. Duncan.

Review of Tiger Lily #3 by Amelie Duncan

I would like to thank Amelie Duncan for the opportunity to read Tiger Lily part 3. I have loved this series from the very beginning and she does not disappoint with this book either as it’s the continuation of Jonas and Lily’s story. I absolutely loved that Lily was a much stronger woman in this installment while Jonas exposed his more vulnerable side.  I have found myself completely invested in each character including the supporting ones. I would love to read more about Paul (Jonas’s son) after he has aged some. Although he has given us a glimpse as to what a teenaged Jonas may have been like.  I also really enjoyed the teasing of a story between Mary and Ian.

I give 4 stars to Tiger Lily part #3 and can’t wait to see what Amelie Duncan comes up with next.

*I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
