Medicine Man by Saffron A. Kent

unnamed (1)Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.

The medicine man.

WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.

For me, this was one of the most antipated books for the year written by one of my favorite authors and was so thrilled to be granted an advance readers copy (ARC). The story is forbidden between a doctor and his patient not just any doctor but a Psychiatrist.  The story was slow to start however stay with it and soon all the vagueness becomes clear, some questions become clearer as you get further into the story.  Parts of this story is heart-wrenching, blubbering emotional mess, others are enlightenment and hopeful. I’m sure most people with have issues with this type of story, I’m happy it was written because there was a story behind and it needed to be written, not just for shits and giggles or shock and awe. However, you be the judge, read at your own risk.

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at
you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling
author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her
who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy

ROYAL by Gigi Thorne! Get yours today for #99cents or #free with
#KindleUnlimited!


Erotic Romance

Blurb:
New royal novella from Gigi Thorne.
Luke
Suffering due to sins of the father is typically how it goes, but as the son of a
predatory and entitled mother, I’d fallen victim to the consequences of her
indiscretions.

Her deathbed confession revealed my darkest secret. At my lowest point, I shared it
with the two people I trusted the most.

It proved to be my biggest mistake.

For the last five years, I’d watched the woman I love reign with a man I despised. He
stole my life, she allowed it, and I was about to make them both pay.

The only way to bring down a king is by stealing his queen.

Sarafina
Five long years without a single look my way. Luke believed that I’d betrayed him
and I’d suffered in silence while he’d torn me apart with his playboy ways.

Set on vengeance, he refused my truth but not without doling out punishment I
couldn’t resist. Little did he know I had plans of my own—if he’d only let me get
close enough.

I feel the need to tell you all about this amazing woman.

Lydia

We met in person about a year ago at a signing, I was embarrassed about meeting her without reading her work. However, she took her time to tell me about her work and asked a lot of questions about what I liked to read. My journey started with SACRIFICE OF THE PAWN and continued on from there and I still haven’t read everything she has written, she is so prolific! When I say no two books are alike I mean it, she writes everything, no holds bar! She makes you feel all the emotions and makes you laugh out loud, the best way to describe it, she makes you live your life to the fullest, whether it’s in her books or meeting her personally, she gives you her all, every time, every day,and with every book.

Izzy As Is by Tracie Banister

The party is over for bikini model Izzy Alvarez. For six years she’s made a good living by flaunting her God-given assets on runways and in front of cameras, but now as she approaches the big 3-0, the bodacious Latina is shocked to learn she’s aged out of the profession that’s kept her in mojitos, mani/pedi’s, and designer thongs. What’s a girl with a taste for the finer things in life and no marketable skills to do?

Getting a regular job is too boring to even consider, so Izzy decides to follow in the footsteps of her newly-engaged frenemy and become a trophy wife. Although she’s desperate and too broke to get a chipped nail fixed, Izzy still has standards for her future husband, which means no uggos, no vertically-challenged guys, and no geezers who need to pop a blue pill to perform in the bedroom. Enlisting the aid of her computer whiz nephew and her closest pals, Izzy goes on the prowl for a rich, marriage-minded man, encountering likely candidates in a lot of unlikely places.

The high life she’s dreamed of may be within reach when Izzy meets a charming, successful man who’s not only hotter than a steamy summer night in Miami but ready to settle down. Now all Izzy has to do is make sure her loud, crazy Cuban family doesn’t scare off el hombre perfecto—oh, yeah, and squelch those pesky, romantic feelings she keeps having for the sweet, cash-strapped guy she’s known forever.

Will Izzy’s hunger for money win out, or will her fiery heart demand to be heard?

About the Author: Tracie Banister

An avid reader and writer, Tracie Banister has been scribbling stories since she was a child, most of them featuring feisty heroines with complicated love lives like her favorite fictional protagonist Scarlett O’Hara. Her work was first seen on the stage of her elementary school, where her 4th grade class performed an original holiday play that she penned (Like all good divas-in-the-making, she, also, starred in and tried to direct the production.) Her dreams of authorial success were put on the backburner when she reached adulthood and discovered that she needed a “real” job in order to pay her bills. Her career as personal assistant to a local entrepreneur lasted for 12 years. When it ended, Tracie decided to follow her bliss and dedicate herself to writing full-time. Her debut novel, the Hollywood-themed BLAME IT ON THE FAME, was released in January, 2012. And she’s following that up with the fun summer read, IN NEED OF THERAPY.

Tracie Banister

My Review: So many first for me with this book, reading this author and having such strong opinions about the main character, Izzy Alvarez, mostly dislike loathing, and contempt. Not really sure if I wanted to continue reading the story. Then I stopped and thought about my reactions and have to say if anyone could get me to react this way that is some damn good writing to invoke all those emotions.  So I continued reading and have to say I’m very glad I did, not that Izzy redeemed herself or her qualities (lack of) but she became more of a human being when she stopped trying so hard. This also reminded me of an old colleague, also Cuban-American and her ideas of getting a second husband (smiles). Tracie gave us some great one-liners, some laugh-out-loud moments, and some food for thought, especially if you have strong reactions to characters. Thank you so much for allowing me to read your work. ****



We’re celebrating the release of  SOMEONE
ELSE’S OCEAN by Kate Stewart! One-Click today!!!

Contemporary Romance

Stand Alone
July 31, 2018
Cover Designed by: Amy Queau- Q Design Cover and Premades

Blurb:

The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six
years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars.
The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent
and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of
life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. 
We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found
each other and managed to reclaim our stars…until we both got swept away.

About the Author:


A Texas native, Kate Stewart lives in North Carolina with her husband, Nick, and her
naughty beagle, Sadie. She pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as
well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a
reader. Kate is a lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and
rap. She dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity,
and on occasion, does very well at whiskey.

Two Weeks Notice by Whitney G.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to formally announce my resignation from Parker International (& the arrogant, condescending CEO) effective two weeks from today.

This was a VERY EASY decision to make, as the past two years have been utterly miserable. I wish his next executive assistant all the luck in the world (she’ll need it) and if my boss should need me to do anything over the next two weeks, kindly tell him that he can do it [his] goddamn self…

Sincerely (Not Really),
Tara Lauren

That’s the version of my two weeks’ notice I should’ve sent to my boss, because the more professional version–the one where I said I was “grateful for all the opportunities,” and “honored by all the rewarding experiences” over the years?

That letter was rejected with his sexy, trademark smirk and an “I highly suggest you read the fine print of your contract…”

So, I did.

And now I’ve realized that unless I fake my death, poison him, or find a way to renegotiate my impossible contract, I’m stuck working under one of the cockiest and most ruthless bosses in New York.

Then again, I thought that was the case until he called me late last night with an emergency proposition…

**This is a standalone contemporary romance.**

Hardwired by Andrea Bills

Hardwired1When Navy Seal Operative Luke Kiersey is finally granted leave after five years, he finds himself driving to a house he doesn’t recognize in a town he’s never been to. The house is home to a beautiful woman and a little girl with big blue eyes. Day after day, he drives back only to hide in the shadows and wonder why he can’t seem to walk away from them.
His therapist says is PTSD.

His handler tells him he’s just not cut out to be part of the civilian world.

Luke can’t help but feel like it’s more.
Hardwired2
The dog tags that once hung proudly around his neck, now feel like a collar; leashing him to a life that he fears he didn’t choose. After the terrible things he’s done in the name of freedom, could he possibly be worthy of something as precious as the woman and child he continues to watch?
Hardwired3
When the two worlds collide, Luke needs his mind to be stronger than the implant the government placed in his back. They’ve told him he can’t survive without the implant they use to control him, but Luke’s wondering if he can survive without the little girl with big blue eyes and the gorgeous woman she calls mamma.

First, take a look at this cover, who doesn’t love BT? It’s great, right? Well, this story is a little suspense-mystery, little sci-fi (which by the way, I don’t normally read) and it’s a romance with a hot Navy Seal. It has a little of everything, but more importantly, it will leave you feeling all the feels and good versus evil, not knowing which will prevail in the end. Andrea Bills writing style is growing with each book she publishes and if she can convince me to read something so far outside my comfort zone, you should take the risk as well. Yippee Ki Yay!
