The Kiss Thief Full Jacket

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.

Two men.

Three lives.

Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

Erotic Romance

New royal novella from Gigi Thorne.
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

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.

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.

Lydia Michaels

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


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.

If I’d Known by Paige P. Horne

It was the summer of 1972 and till this day, I can still remember the way my heart felt the first time I laid eyes on him. Travis Cole was more than just the bad boy from Ft. Pierce Florida. He was my always. 

Time is a thief, they say and if you’re not careful it’ll slip right past you, taking everything you hold dear in this world with it. My name is Charlotte Harris and I hold in my heart a timeless tale about true love, loss and everything in between. 

*Based on actual events, takes place past and present. 

How many times have you ever mumbled or thought those words, if only I’d known, or if I knew then what I know now, would I change anything? Make different choices? Follow my heart, instead of my head, or vice versa.

This is a romantic love story told differently than most, it’s heart-breaking, ugly cry read, that everyone should experience. Afterward, asking about their own life, questions like the ones above, what if? If you have known what was going to happen would you make the same choices? My bet is most wouldn’t change a thing, because I believe, everyone was meant to live the life they have. Their experiences make them the person who they are today.

Thank you, Shabnam Arora, from BookBistroBlog for recommending this author and book, I’m going to start calling you a book whisperer, except you scream your favorites. I’ll find the correct adjective.

Queen of the Knight by Lydia Michaels

Queen of the Knight

This is book two in the Surrender Games Series

If you haven’t read Sacrifice of the Pawn, you need to read it first before moving on the Queen of the Night!

The game has changed, and no player’s position is safe…

In a world of power, money, deceit, and lust, no player is exactly how they seem. Love and trust are at stake when the game is changed, and old enemies come out of hiding, disguised as friends. 

Isadora Patras must proceed wisely. After thirteen years of heartbreak and denial, she no longer trusts her instincts. One man embodies her past, the other could be her future, but which one holds her heart? Isadora must choose between her family and two very different men. Either way, her choice could cost her everything. 

In a game of kings, bishops, rooks, and knights there are no guarantees. But if Isadora wants to be a Queen, someone will have to lose.

This book has all the feels, the first date has never been more fun, the first kiss never sweeter, longing, built up the anticipation of what can be and what has yet to happen.

Two people who grew up too fast, too quickly, never having the opportunity to be children themselves, can they find what they have been missing in their lives? Is it true that everything you learn is taught in Kindergarten? This story will grab you by the short hairs, tug and pull until your heart pays attention. Excellent must read.

A Way to Get By Tina Torrest

At C.O.P.A. Saturday, April 1, 2017, when I came across Tina Torrest, heard the name but didn’t have the opportunity to read her work. Walked over introduced myself, turns out she is a North Jersey girl, just like me, I grew up in Paterson, she comes from Wayne, the next town north. She starts telling me about her books, WOW, really impressed, trying hard to rein in the fangirling, but it’s impossible. Sold me by saying, A Way to Get By is loosely based on Billy Joel’s song about Brenda & Eddie. Stranger album one of my favorites started singing as I was waiting to purchased the book, yup, embarrassing. Oh and Tina Torrest is now my new best friend, she may not be aware of this information yet, I’m trolling, stalking, fangirling really hard. Today, I sat down to read it in a few hours so here is my review. It’s nothing compared to her writing but it might or might not persuade you to read her work, if not, please don’t let her know it’s cause of this review.
This is Brenda and Eddie’s story, yes, they bought a waterbed and a couple of paintings from Sears. Truth be told this is no love song, no one compares to them. Their story is unique and so is the way in which the story is told, it will leave you shaking your head, singing to yourself, and remembering a fonder time in your life, that is, if you were born and lived in the late 70-80’s. BTW, this is an emotional read; feeling may range from anger, betrayal, frustration, hatred, love, and restlessness. I enjoyed reading this unique story and look forward to more of Ms. Torrest writing.

About the Author: Tina TorrestT.Torrest

T. Torrest is a fiction writer from the U.S. She has written many books, but prays that only a handful of them will ever see the light of day. Her stories are geared toward readers of any age that know how to enjoy a good laugh and a dreamy romance.

Ms. Torrest was a child of the eighties, but has since traded in her Rubik’s cube for a laptop and her Catholic school uniform for a comfy pair of yoga pants. She’s a pop-culture junkie, a movie aficionado, and an enthusiast of talking about herself in the third person. A lifelong Jersey girl, she currently resides there with her husband and two sons.

She also really digs it when she hears from readers, and is known to use words like “dig” in a non-sarcastic way.

Chasing After Me by RC Martin

Wow, just wow! A sweet love story involving two- people who on the surface may not be compatible. However, the more we get to know each character, we know deep in our hearts they belong together. It also reminds us, do not judge a book by its cover. This story is about compassion, friendship, and love. In addition, it teaches us to be our original selves, to go after what it is that we want in life and never to give up. Oh, did I mention, sex? Yeah, always about crazy sweaty monkey sex, and oh the kissing! A five star must read!!
