Excerpt: Marz was playing with fire. He damn well knew he was. But that didn’t make him want to pull away. He just wanted more of the heat. 
Marz nuzzled the side of Emilie’s face with his nose, his lips. She turned her face toward him and offered her lips. He couldn’t refuse.
Capturing her mouth on a tortured groan, Marz poured every ounce of his longing and confusion and desire into the kiss. They grasped at each other and Emilie turned in his arms. 
He pinned her against the railing and planted his hands in her hair. She opened to him and accepted his tongue, sucking him in until Marz’s blood ran hot and his hard-on ached. He ground himself against her and devoured every little moan and whimper and gasp she spilled. 
Trailing kisses from her mouth to her jaw to her ear, Marz dragged a hand down her body and grasped her breast in his palm. She cried out and her head dropped back, drawing his mouth to her neck, where he licked and sucked and nipped as he kneaded her soft flesh. 
“You are so damn sexy.” Her hand flew to his hair and grasped the back of his head. “Touch me,” she said. “Don’t stop touching me.” Marz pulled away long enough to do a three-sixty scan. 
The lighthouse cast a dark shadow over them, and the pier was otherwise empty. His heart raced and his pulse hammered. He dove back in, trailing kisses down her neck to her collarbone, which he traced with his tongue. Her nails scratched deliciously at his scalp and her grip urged him down. 
Through the thin material of her blouse and bra, he mouthed and flicked at her nipple. He shifted the deep vee of the neckline to reveal a lacy royal blue bra. He tongued her through the lace until she was panting and moaning and writhing against the railing. 
“Oh, my God,” she rasped as he shifted her shirt and moved to her other breast. This time, he tugged the lace down to bare the deep pink of her nipple. She tasted and smelled like something fruity and sweet, and it made Marz hunger for more. 
“Derek,” she gasped. “Yes, yes, yes.” Her palm cupped and squeezed the bulge of his erection through his jeans. His hips jerked into the touch, craving more of her, all of her. He groaned and it seemed to egg her on, because she pressed and rubbed her hand against his trapped cock until he was panting and imagining taking her down to the ground. 
“Jesus, Emilie, you’re driving me fucking crazy,” he said as he worked kisses back up her body to her mouth. “I know just what you mean,” she said. 
Her molten hot gaze met his. Eyes hooded, lips shiny and swollen, cheeks flushed, she was a freaking goddess standing under the moonlit sky. He felt the force of her beauty every bit as much in his chest as in his cock. 
“You sure about that, babe?” he asked as he took her mouth in a deep, wet kiss. “Because my imagination has me stripping you of those fuck-hot jeans.” “Yeah?” She rubbed his cock in a long stroke with the heel of her hand. 
“Mine has us getting a room at the hotel back there. So I’m sure,” she said with a smile. Marz’s heart hammered against his breastbone and his cock jerked, clearly liking her idea, too. 
Except, if he took her up on it, he was going to end up buried inside her for as long as she’d have him. And so long as this clusterfuck of a situation defined their relationship, he couldn’t take things that far. Could he?




About HARD TO COME BY: 
Caught between desire and loyalty... Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his disgraced Special Forces team--sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there. When a sexy stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become. Derek's easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn't trust. As the team's investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away...

Reviewed by: Wendy

My Rating: 4 Stars


BLURB: Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun. 

Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn’t dimmed Abe Green’s optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.

For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.

REVIEW: Two men meet in a bar, one looking for a hot night of wild sex and the other looking for a fun night out with friends on his birthday. One man looking for a relationship and the other looking for a quick one night stand. Do you think they could ever meet in the middle to find happiness? Well, in this great book they do. Jason is a stressed out doctor looking for nothing but quick hot sex just to release some tension. Abe is a mild mannered school teacher looking for the perfect man to love. Jason hears Abe's laugh before he even sees him that night in the bar. Following the sound of the laughter Jason finds Abe getting ready to leave for the evening. One thing leads to another and Jason finds himself Abe's birthday present to himself. Jason knows in his head that Abe is only a one time deal but he can't seem to tell his heart that. Having fun for the night without sex is not like him at all, but spending time with Abe has become more important than the sex. 
When their two worlds collide Jason has to decide if he wants to keep having random sex with strangers or does he want to take a chance on the love and relationship that he always dreamed of having.

DEN OF SIN Book Blast & Giveaway!!



Den of Sin series Author's
 Ambrielle Kirk, Renee Luke, Mel Blue, Holley Trent


Reckless Attraction
by Ambrielle Kirk


My estranged husband, Rich, is a habitual cheater. He says he has a problem with commitment because he’s messed up in the head. I’ve called him on it more than once. No one likes a liar, no matter how handsome he is. He says he wants me to have casual sex with another man to even the score. I don’t need his free pass. I can do bad by myself. I already have…I spend my days working at the diner and my nights in an adult chat room with a sexy stranger, keeping my body at a distance and my heart safe.                      
Rich’s biggest mistake didn’t occur when he stepped out on me. His undoing was inviting Trevor Stanley into our bed. Trevor is cocky, arrogant, and holds nothing back, but when he looks at me, I’m drawn to him like light is to dark. Pending my divorce, Trevor seems to think I’m fair game and leaves more than his sex-laced advances on the table. He’s way too tempting and doesn’t seem to think it matters that my soon-to-be ex-husband is his boss. 
All I really want is a no-strings-attached fling. The opportunity comes when I receive an anonymous invite to the Hotel Beaudelaire’s exclusive Den of Sin Winterball. But every sin has a price…


Melt Into Me
By Renee Luke

Lawyer Taya Monroe’s coworkers believe she’s an ice princess, but in truth, she’s burning up inside and craving a man too dangerous to court. When a client slips her an invitation to the Den of Sin’s exclusive Winterball Masquerade, she decides to take a chance. She can experience all her sexual fantasies behind the anonymity of a mask, and she knows exactly whom she wants the matchmaker to set her up with: fellow attorney Aiden Cole. 
Aiden believes in working hard and playing harder, and commits to everything in his life with passion. However, although he’s had his fair share of lovers, he’s no player. His encounters are sins of the flesh—never the heart. His heart is already claimed. When he’s invited to the masquerade to meet with a secret guest, he accepts…and pegs the masked mystery woman as his untouchable ice princess the moment he sees her move. 
At the Den, anything goes, and Aiden’s ready to give Taya his body in addition to his heart. But will she survive the heat of their encounter when he makes her hard-won icy walls come melting down?



Unbidden Desires
By Melissa Blue


When your greatest enemy becomes your best lover… 
Zora Riley’s intentions were to discover the scandalous story her rival dug up on The Beaudelaire. If the whispers were true then a five-star hotel in New Orleans transformed into a Den of Sin. Just the name of one famous attendant could make the rest of her career, and if Alastair planned to report the story first then she had to be the one to scoop him. It was only fair since he’d been taking her stories for the last six months. But when a heated argument with Alastair turns into a toe-curling interlude, she’s shaken to her core.                  
Alastair Halliday left Great Britain to make a name for himself in America, but he didn’t come to the Den for a story. Working for years in a dog-eat-dog environment, with insane hours, has left him needing something a little less refined and ambitious…something that will feed his kink. The Den’s winter masquerade ball will allow him to be anyone, someone whose work won’t get in the way of something simple and primal. That is until he kisses Zora, his most tempting rival. 
When the weekend is over and the masks come off, will they go back to being enemies or will they stay lovers?


Winterball
Author: Holley Trent

The catcher calls the shots. 
When teammates Barton Lock and Evan Boswell arrive separately at the Hotel Beaudelaire’s exclusive Den of Sin Winterball, neither expects the staff matchmaker to pair them with the other. Evan is minor league baseball’s biggest ladies’ man, and Bart has spent way too many nights bearing witness to Evan’s conquests.
Evan came to the Den to play, but knowing Bart is the other party in his secret weekend rendezvous changes the game. Evan’s used to Bart calling the shots on the field, and wouldn’t mind so much if Bart did the same in his personal life, too. Unfortunately, Bart thinks Evan’s attempted seduction has more to do with changing his mind about retiring from their sport than hitting a relationship home run.

Bad Things by Varian Krylov


Book Name: Bad Things

Series: Book 2 after Dangerously Happy

Author's Name: Varian Krylov

Genre: M/M- Contemporary

Main Characters: Xavier and Carson

Release Date: 09/15/2014


Book Provided by: ARC by Author

Reviewed by: Wendy

My Rating: 4 Stars 








BLURB: 
Xavier makes a lot of people nervous. The rest, he flat-out scares. More than his hulking, tattooed body, it's his predator's gaze that makes people feel vulnerable, as if he had the power to read their thoughts and see their soul. For his lovers, it's Xavier's ravenous appetite for all things carnal—for the taste of flesh under his tongue and the feel of a trembling body under his control, for whispered pleas and muffled cries—that makes him dangerous.
But recently, driven by a festering rage against the men who attacked his sister a decade ago, Xavier has developed a taste for a different kind of hunt and conquest: stalking men who do truly bad things and punishing the predators he sniffs out. The problem with vigilante justice, though, is sometimes the man in your trap is innocent.
Carson suspects he's playing a risky game with dangerous men. But the lies are convincing, especially when they're slipped to him among hundred dollar bills. He never guessed how big and dark the secret hidden under all the lies and money could be. And he has no idea he's not the predator, but the prey, until it's too late.
And you can't beg for mercy when there's a gag in your mouth.
But when Carson escapes from Xavier's trap, he's forced to accept that Xavier is far from his most dangerous enemy. Xavier may even hold the key to overcoming the painful past that has kept Carson prisoner for almost two decades.


REVIEW: I don't know where to begin with this review, it's actually taken me over two weeks to sit down and write it. To get this out of the way first, the author's writing is outstanding, that I really enjoyed. I think it was more of the story line that made be sit back and think on it before I sat down to write a review. 
Xavier is a hard man to hate but an even harder man to love, now I know that probably makes no sense so I will explain it. His love for his sister is completely heartwarming, he wants nothing but the best for her. But he wants justice for her past to come at his hands. Having rage and vengeance leading him will cause nothing but trouble. Working behind his sisters back and going undercover he meets Carson, a straight man who lets his glances linger longer than they should for a man not interested in sex with another man. 
Now this is where I come into the hard time loving Xavier. Kidnapping Carson to find out what he knows is understandable but the sex is very much on the edge on non-consensual to me, NOT that he raped Carson (that is not what I am saying). I felt he talked Carson into more than what he was ready for but what he did opened Carson's eyes to what he really wanted in life. His feelings that he was told were wrong for so long now didn't seem to be as wrong as his parents made him think. 
What I will stop with is "Love is Love, sometimes it takes people longer to get there than others" and not all methods to open someone's eyes will work on everyone, but Xavier did what was right for him and Carson both. 
I will go back and read book one just to get more of what made Xavier the way he is. 
This is an ADULT book, if you can't handle Male on Male action then don't bother picking it up. Would I recommend this book to a friend- Hell Yeah, just because I want someone to talk to about the relationship between Xavier & Carson!

D.B. Reynolds' VINCENT Blog Tour plus Guest Post and Giveaway!!


Guest Post 
by

D. B. Reynolds 

I was looking for fresh topics for my blog post, and decided to put it out there for my readers (the best readers in the world!) They came up with some great subjects, but rather than pick one, I’m going to answer the several questions that resulted. So, here goes …

Q. What makes best friends so important in a story line?

A. Mostly best friends serve to humanize the character, so she doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Interaction with best friends is a vehicle for insight into a character, into the emotional and social history that made her who she is.

Q. Looking at the world we live in now, do you think it would be better off if vampires truly did exist?

A. I don’t know if the world would be better off, but it would certainly be more interesting. It would depend on the vampires, of course, but I’d also worry that humans would hunt them down, since that’s what we do. Anything we don’t understand … kill it!

Q. Do you ever feel like maybe the world is a script being played out, and we are all nothing more characters playing our parts?

A. Hmmm. No. I think it’s all pretty much random.

Q. I have been re-reading the series in prep for Vincent. I am on Lucas right now. One of the things he mentioned is that the boundaries for North America were established long ago. How did they become established?

A. The territorial boundaries are the result of powerful vampires, like Raphael, claiming as much territory as they could hold through a combination of raw power and vampire supporters/fighters. Theoretically, the boundaries could change, assuming a ruling vampire lord could seize enough of his neighbor’s territory to shift the boundaries, the way Klemens tried to do with Lucas.

Q. What about more on the differences between the North American vampires and the European vampires. Are there vampires in other countries such as Asia?

A. Yes, there are vampires all over the world. In Sophia, for example, there was a some discussion of the vampires in South America, and there are undoubtedly vampires throughout Asia. The older countries, that is countries that have had large human populations for a longer time, have more and generally older vampires. That’s why the European vamps want to take over North America, because they’ve run out of new territory and have too many vamps, while North America has its population spread over large swaths of territory.

Q. What makes one vampire have special powers while another is so much weaker?

A. No one really understands how this works. It’s been discussed more than once in the books, and not even Raphael understands it.




Vincent
(Vampires in America Book #8) by D.B. Reynolds
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: ImaJinn Books
Release Date: November 1, 2014


Sinaloa, Mexico . . . haunting deserts, hot nights, and vampires, who’ve been there for hundreds of years, watching from the shadows, playing their games, manipulating humans, and surviving at any cost.
Vincent Kuxim, powerful and charismatic, was made vampire by an ambitious leader looking for soldiers to pave his way to the rule of all Mexico. But more than a century later, Vincent’s Sire is looking over his shoulder as Vincent closes in for the kill, ready to claim the title Lord of Mexico for himself.

Lana Arnold is a bounty hunter, smart, beautiful, and determined to chart her own future. So when the most powerful vampire lord in all of North America enlists her help in tracking down a very old and elusive bloodsucker, Lana sees nothing but opportunity. There’s only one catch. The client wants her to take Vincent—a vampire she neither knows nor trusts—along on her hunt. Then again, maybe it’s herself she doesn’t trust, because Vincent Kuxim is sex walking in a pair of tight black jeans.

Thrown together by circumstance, Vincent and Lana soon find themselves battling an evil they didn’t know existed in a fight that makes Vincent all the more determined to destroy his Sire, seize Mexico for himself . . . and keep Lana by his side forever.

Ever After by Kim Harrison

Book Name: Ever After

Series: The Hollows #11

Author's Name: Kim Harrison

Genre: M/F- Urban Fantasy

Main Characters: Rachel and Trent

Release Date: January 22, 2013

Book Provided by: Purchased

Reviewed by: LT

My Rating: 4.5




Blurb: The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels the human world, is shrinking. If it disappears completely, so does all magic. It's up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to avert catastrophe and keep life from changing... for the worse.

While saving the world is important, it isn't Rachel's only motivation. There's also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, setting off a chain reaction of unfortunate events. That little mistake has made her life forfeit unless she can fix it. It's also made her more than a few enemies, including the most powerful demon in the ever after—a terrifying entity who eats souls and now has an insatiable appetite for her. He's already kidnapped her friend and goddaughter to lure her out, and if Rachel doesn't give herself up soon, they'll die.

But Rachel has more than a few impressive and frightening skills of her own, and she isn't going to hand over her soul and her life without one hell of a fight. She's also got a surprise: elven tycoon Trent Kalamack. With this unlikely ally beside her—a prospect both thrilling and unnerving—she's going to return to the ever after, kick some demon butt, rescue her loved ones... and prevent an apocalypse before it's too late. Or, at least that's the plan..



Review: Rachel has always known herself to be a witch. But new information has surfaced proving her to be a demon. This is not something Rachel was willing to accept easily. But with her new powers growing daily and with the teachings of her demon teacher Al, she learns how to twist curses to her advantage. She also finds herself yet again having to save the world or save the Ever After, which is the world of the demons. It's hard for Rachel to defeat the person that caused the destruction of the Ever After because.. it was herself.  While trying out her new powers and jumping lines before she had the skill, Rachel made her line dangerous and it started to affect all others lines. Lines are what all magical beings pull their power from. All the while Rachel has a Super Demon-made Demon out to kill her and all the other demons. Rachel is out powered by him and needs to team up with an unlikely couple to save everyone.
Trent is powerful and rich and was recently outed as an Elf. He likes to hire Rachel off and on to help in his mission to make his people strong and united again, like in the past before the demons escaped from them. But Trent is torn between his two daughters, one by blood and one adopted. Lucy's mother, his ex, wants him back and with their marriage it would unite the Elves. His other daughter Ray,  just lost her mother at the hands of Super Demon and he needs to help Rachel save them.  But who will save him from the choices he has to make?

Review: Even though the demon that possessed the reaper, Kylen for so long has been killed, what remains of Kylen, is not the same. All those years took a toll on his mind and body, and in ways he still feels the tethers that tie him to evil. Everyone fears he will soon be lost to the dark side. The burden of losing the only woman he ever loved tears him apart, he has lost faith, and hopes his job of now killing demons will be done soon as well as his own life. Drawn by screams in an ally, he saves a young woman from being possessed and takes her to safety. Still on his path of destruction, his thoughts begin to take a turn as he repeatedly allows his energy to flow into her and heal her.
Olivia’s days are quickly numbered. The cancer has spread and there is no hope. Trying to fulfill her written down bucket list, she only has a few left to be marked off. One she never thought she would be able to accomplish was #60 on the list, save a life. She just hopes in her last hours, she can save Kylen before it’s to late, for both of them.

Sometimes great evil is necessary to keep what you love most.
After centuries on the run, Rhane can avoid justice no longer. Primes have called him home and now he must finally answer for the sins of his past. But the situation in Rhane’s homeland is far worse than anyone could have imagined, and the judgment Rhane faces is a brutal one.

Kali and the other kin work tirelessly to secure Rhane’s freedom, but many obstacles stand in their way. Wesley offers a solution that hinges upon resuming a dangerous search for the Siren’s Heart. Trusting him, she and the kin set out once again to find the elusive artifact, believing Rhane and Warren’s freedom can be bartered in exchange for the statue. But other creatures are searching for the Heart. And with greater resources and a head start, their enemies may reach it first.
In Book 3 of this Amazon bestselling series, Kali and Rhane’s struggle to defend their love continues. Mysteries are solved even as new secrets unfold. Agendas become clearer.

BANEWOLF
Dark Sirens, #2 
New enemies are made.
New allies must be forged.
Kali is beginning to regain her memories. In doing so, she discovers old secrets and betrayals that threaten to unravel her present and shake the foundation for Rhane’s belief in her innocence. While her maturing abilities present unique challenges, a bigger problem arises when Kali learns her ex-boyfriend has made a misguided deal with the enemy in order to win her back—a decision that may ultimately cost him his humanity.
Keeping Kali safe has become a full time job for Rhane. And struggling to gain control of the immortal Banewolf isn’t making that task any easier. The power to eliminate the growing threat against Kali lies at Rhane’s fingertips, but using it means risking his friends to the insatiable blood lust of a monster. So Rhane is forced to forge a shaky alliance with creatures he has sworn to destroy. Despite these new allies, the danger pressing on their borders intensifies, culminating in a heartbreaking and shocking finale.
The strength of the bond between young and ancient lovers will be tested…and if Kali and Rhane are to survive, they must find a way to be unbreakable.

DARK SIREN
Dark Sirens, #1 
To survive, their bond must be unbreakable.
When the mysterious and passionate Rhane rescues Kali from an attacker in the theater parking lot, they form an immediate, smoldering connection. But Kali doesn't remember Rhane or anything from their past. As far as Kali knows, she's just a seventeen-year-old kid coping with an insatiable hunger for the “spark” or energy of others, feeding on classmates to survive.
A unique artifact—one that may hold the key to returning Kali’s memories—is uncovered by the archaeology firm where she works part-time, sending Kali and Rhane on a dangerous journey that leads them to the Forbidden City, into the unforgiving Gobi, and into the ruins of Rhane’s ancient homeland. As they fight for survival, Kali begins to discover who she really is and the true power she possesses.
But Rhane still harbors a secret that could destroy Kali…unless old enemies kill her first.
