Freebie Friday : Copper King by Vivian Arend

Freebie Friday : Copper King by Vivian Arend

Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon’s to-do list: women, work… and more women. It’s a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York — he’s got the money and the power to do anything he wants. Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he’ll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes. With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie’s finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She’s got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she’s eager to do this up right. It’s the… Keep Reading »

New York Admirals captain Scott Hunter takes his pregame rituals very seriously. In this case, it’s not just a lucky smoothie he’s craving—it’s the man who made it.

So, when a smoothie made by juice bar barista Kip Grady precedes Scott breaking his on-ice slump, he’s desperate to recreate the magic…and to get to know the sexy, funny guy behind the counter. Kip knew there was more to Scott’s frequent visits than blended fruit, but he never let himself imagine being invited back to Scott’s penthouse. Or kissed with reckless abandon, never mind touched everywhere all at once. When it happens it’s red-hot, incredible and frequent, but also only on Scott’s terms and always behind his closed apartment doors. Scott needs Kip in his life, but with playoff season approaching, the spotlight on him is suddenly brighter than ever.

Friday Freebie : Recommended Romance from Eve Langlais

Friday Freebie : Recommended Romance from Eve Langlais

Hi all! I’m back from vacation – hope you all didn’t miss me too much 🙂 Today, the recommended Freebie is from the wonderful Eve Langlais. If you haven’t tried her work before, you must; she writes larger than life, slapstick, paranormal comedies that never fail to make me laugh!   Dammit , just how many toes was she going to have to stomp on before people realized she was a Delicate Freakn’ Flower? Naomi doesn’t want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five, testosterone laden brothers where none of the dishes ever matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand any catastrophe, and where crazy glue was bought by the case. When fate–with a snicker–makes her meet not one, but two mates, Naomi digs her heels in and refuses to do what her wolf–and her body–demands. No way is she voluntarily allowing herself to get hitched to a pair of dumbass–totally hot and muscled–lacrosse players. Can Ethan, the… Keep Reading »

Searching for my reading Mojo ….

Searching for my reading Mojo ….

I haven’t reviewed in weeks. It isn’t that I haven’t been reading (boy have I been reading….) but I can’t seem to get out of my re-read cycle! In the last two weeks I’ve reread Cat and Bones (One of my all time favourite UF series), some of the Penny Reid Dating in the City (not all. I really don’t like a few) and I’m on to the O’Kane series by Kit Rocha (I may be here a while guys because….   So what did it? What killed the best reading streak I’ve been on in years? It was a book. Not a bad book, just a meh book. The issue with following so many book bloggers on twitter is that you get caught up in the excitement. When you read tweet after tweet about a book and how much others love it, you get VERY excited to read it too and share the love. I went into said book thinking ….   I came out thinking …   I… Keep Reading »

Hot Cover Monday : Avoiding the Badge by Dorothy Shaw

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED   Rayna Michaels may be a veterinarian, but she knows a little something about the human heart—especially when it comes to worried pet owners. Law enforcement’s bonds with their K9 partners are legendary, and Derek Hansen is a perfect example—he’s had his dog Axle in more times than she can count in the last few months. And Derek’s sculpted muscles and heart-stopping smile would be truly irresistible, if only he wasn’t an officer of the law… Derek can’t get Rayna’s stunning face and no-nonsense smarts out of his mind. Any excuse to see her will do, until he works up the nerve to ask her out. He’s not sure where her resistance to cops comes from, though he’s more than willing to prove he’s one of the good ones. But when casual dating turns into explosive lovemaking, Derek knows he has to come clean about his past before the woman he loves finds out what he’s been hiding and turns tail to run…
