Blurb

After a decade spent claiming a throne for himself in the seething violence of the criminal underbelly, all Donatello Vanici craves now is peace.

Only a union forged between his heir and the most powerful mafiya family in existence could ever be strong enough to end the bloodshed for good, but the Stepanov head resists his overtures at every turn…

Until tragedy strikes, and forces Donatello’s hand.

Haunted by a past that dogs her every thought, Willow Stepanov will do anything for the man who adopted her—until a chance encounter with the enemy lands her right in the middle of a dangerous power struggle and a war that grows more violent and vicious each day.

But it’s not just her future her captor holds hostage.

He is a man with nothing left to lose—while she may just lose everything.

Her life, her family, and her heart…

 Mice and Men is a new standalone series in the War of Roses Universe.

Queen of Thorns: A Dark Mafia Romance: War of Roses Universe: (Mice and Men Book 2)

Release Date: TBD

Ruthless King: Teaser 

Cold, his eyes rake over me. From my scalp, down to my heaving chest. His jaw twitches, his breathing audibly unsteady. Heavy. Rasping.

“You can’t be her…” To prove it, he brushes the thumb of his free hand down the length of my cheek. Did he ever stop to picture how his little _____ might look seven years after his betrayal? Did he imagine some weak, broken, mournful creature?

Anyone but me. I am not broken, holding his gaze even as tears blur my vision. I am not some sniffling little victim.

Teaser from Moth (book 1 in the Duet):

“Tell me something, does he appreciate your little hobby? Your boyfriend?” He laughs again, but the sound is decidedly colder this time. “Don’t answer that. Describe me instead. Describe me with your writerly words.”

“An asshole. A creep. A fucking liar,’” I snipe. “There. Satisfied?”

He lets me go, turning away. “I’ve been called worse. I bet you have too, rabbit.”

I bite my lip. Have I? Yes. The words echo, distorted, and muted by memory. You’re so selfish, Hannah. Fucking selfish…

“I’m leaving now,” I say, struggling to sound like I mean it.

“Not before I get to critique your assessment.” He whirls to face me, stroking his chin. “A creep. Asshole. Well, I am all of the above…except that last thing. I’m not a liar.”

I meet his gaze again, but the darkness I find there is unwaveringly steady. He’s telling the truth, or at least he thinks he is.

Which strikes me as strange. Out of all the attributes on that list, I wouldn’t expect him to deny that one.

“So, you never lie?” I ask, still holding his gaze.

“No,” he says. “So think carefully about whatever you’re going to ask me next. Make sure you can sleep with it.”

I do. The air catches in the back of my throat as I open my mouth and ask, “Why pick on me?”

He laughs. “I told you.” He moves slowly, giving me every chance to escape his advance. When I don’t, his hands return to my hips. “I want to know what makes a rabbit scream.”

One by one, he spreads out his fingers, and I’m riveted by the sight of them—long and slim, streaked with dirt. Or paint? Gradually, they slip between the denim of my jeans to connect with my skin. Greedily, seeking more. More. Once he’s gained enough leverage, he tugs.

I inhale, raising my hands. “S-Stop—”

“No,” he growls, yanking me into him. “Close your eyes.”

Something in his voice reaches past my logical brain, the part of me I’ve listened to my entire life. He goes deeper.

“Feel,” he commands in a tone that ripples down my spine. “What does this feel like? Tell me, and I’ll stop.”

Softness mingled with a slightly rougher texture. Definitely paint. Warmth from the fingertips traces a blazing path over my chilled flesh. Down, down, down…

“Breathe, rabbit,” he urges, his mouth near my ear. “I won’t hurt you. Unless you ask me to.”

*COVER REVEAL* ~ Warlord, by Jagger Cole

Goodreads – https://bit.ly/35dROW7

Synopsis

She wants me dead. I want her as my wife.

They call me a savage. A beast. A jungle warlord fighting a forgotten war in a place the world forgot. And believe me, that suits me just fine. No rules, no BS, no baggage.

That is, until the very second Isla Carrington steps off a plane and into my world as my captive.

She’s everything I’ve ever run from – brains, sass, and beauty. A literal royal duchess, for God’s sake. She also might be everything I’ve ever wanted. It’s dangerous for her to be here. Not because of the bullets, mortars, or the man-eating tigers that prowl this jungle. It’s dangerous because her being here temps me.

I should send her packing. But a rival wants my head on a plate after a misunderstanding. The only way I keep it on my neck is if I pretend my gorgeous captive is my new wife.

I threw myself into a jungle war for the freedom to be alone and escape the world. Now, I’ll do anything to keep her with me. And all to myself.

About the author 

Jagger Cole likes his romance books like he likes his martinis—extra dirty, with a twist. A reader first and foremost, Jagger got his start with steamy romance almost ten years ago, writing especially dirty and somewhat perplexing Star Wars erotic fan-fiction for online message boards.

After deciding to hang up his writing boots, Jagger worked in advertising for a number of years pretending to be Don Draper. It worked enough to convince a woman way out of his league to marry him, though, which is a total win.

Now, Dad to two little princesses and “Daddy” to a Queen, Jagger is thrilled to be back at the keyboard.

When not writing or reading steamy romance books, he can be found woodworking, enjoying good whiskey, and grilling outside—rain or shine.

*ARC REVIEW* ~ Search and Rescue: A Contemporary Reverse Harem Romance Novel (The Dreadnoughts Book 1)

#reverseharem #adventure #romance

 

Blurb

Kim’s trying to save the world—but is she actually going to make things worse?

Kim Medhurst is an ex-British military intelligence officer turned scientist and climate activist. A thrilling, potentially world-changing discovery leads her to a cave on a remote island off the Scottish coast. But before she can return to the mainland, a natural disaster traps her in the cave with limited food and water. Fortunately, she is an intelligent and resourceful woman who made a backup plan even before she stepped out of her own front door.

Enter Jason Chastain—owner and operator of a private security firm—and his friends Aidan Smith and twins Taylor and Joshua Greig. The foursome are also ex-military, so rescuing Kim should be a walk in the park for them. However, her discovery is so top secret she hasn’t even told Chastain and his buddies precisely what their mission is—instead relying on money and intrigue to get them to do the job. It works, until a series of events turn the rescue mission into an escape mission. Throw in a further revelation that will change all of their lives irrevocably and Kim begins to wonder if she’s bitten off more than she can chew.

Should she have left things well alone, or can this colossal mess be turned into something positive? This is about so much more than just five human beings, after all.

PLEASE NOTESearch and Rescue has a cliffhanger ending.

Search and Rescue is the first book in The Dreadnoughts reverse harem romance series.

Review

Fabulous start to series ~5 stars

This action packed Reverse Harem by Lucy Felthouse is a fab start to her new series The Dreadnoughts. It contains Kim, a confident and feisty heroine, four gorgeous ex Special Ops –Jason, Aiden, Taylor and Joshua and an astonishing discovery that took me, the reader, completely by surprise!

The read kicks off when the four guys embark on a retrieval mission to a remote Scottish island. They soon encounter a lot more than they bargained for and find it difficult to walk away from their mission once it is accomplished. Kim is a woman who is not used to relying on others and I loved how she slowly grows to trust her rescuers as the plot unravels.

The read is a suspenseful one, with danger and adventure and a slow burn romance between the main characters which not only sets the scene for future instalment but contains some smexy times.  I particularly enjoyed how the author portrayed the growing attraction and banter between Kim and all four men, who have very different personalities.

The book ends on a cliffhanger and I am itching to know where the story will go next!

~*ARC Review*~ Prey (A Fantasy Reverse Harem (Omegaverse), by L. V. Lane

#Fantasy #ReverseHarem #Omegaverse
Adult/18+ Read

 

Book Blurb

I am prey.
This is not pity talking, this is an acknowledgment of a fact.
I am small and weak; I am an Omega. I am a prize that men war over.
For a year, I have hidden in the distant corner of the Empire.
But I am running out of food, and I am running out of options.
That I must leave soon is not a decision for today, though, but a decision for tomorrow.
Only tomorrow’s choices never come.
For tonight brings strangers who remind me that I am prey.

Publisher’s Note: Prey is a fantasy reverse harem omegaverse with three stern Alphas, an Alpha wolf-shifter, and a stubborn Omega prey. It includes smoking hot sexual situations, spankings, and domestic discipline.

My Review

One wild ride! – 5 stars

Belle has spent much of her life in hiding since she revealed as an Omega and is clearly struggling to survive on her own. In step three uber-sexy and dominant Alpha Imperium Guards who unexpectedly come across her cottage whilst on a mission. These brothers never expected to be blessed with an Omega and as soon as they scent Belle they go all out to make her theirs, knowing that all their lives  will be changed forever… Cue one wild ride and one very lucky Omega!

If you are after a sweet romance with a slow burn this is cough cough, perhaps not the book for you. Although it has romantic moments it is an out and out lusty read – explicit, with plenty of down and dirty scenes and domestic discipline in the context of an Omegaverse. I loved how although Belle accepts her alphas, she is not a pushover and I enjoyed how the developing storyline showed how the bond between them strengthened as each day passes. Belle has plenty of sass and the read contains some humorous scenes and situations. I adored all of the Alphas, who have very different characters, my soft spot being for Nate, the wolf-shifter.

In the midst of the three brothers claiming Belle, there is also plenty of danger and suspense from those who seek to claim an Omega of their own. This thread woven into the rest of the plot certainly added to my enjoyment and I enjoyed the many twists and turns.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
