Finn exhaled forcefully, like he had been holding his breath for a long time. I looked into his electric-blue eyes and saw nervousness melt to relief. 

He squeezed my hand. “I could wait forever for you or take this as slow as you need as long as I know that you are here with me. I just needed to know that you are as committed to giving us a chance as I am.” 

I smiled at him, a little bit of wickedness playing across my lips.

I placed my hand on his left shoulder and slowly it brushed across his chest to his right shoulder. His eyes began to glow, and then they darkened to a deeper blue. Hmm, it wasn’t only my eyes that changed. Good to know. 

“You could wait forever, could you?” I taunted in a husky, low voice. 

“Ugh,” he grunted. 

I laughed, taking in his tortured expression and tense muscles. 

“You are a little evil,” he rasped. 

“No, baby. I promise I’m very good, and I don’t want to wait forever. Just a little bit longer,” I whispered.

“Get your sexy ass in the car before I toss you in the back seat and say the fuck with waiting,” Finn growled.  

I licked my lips and thought about taunting him a little more, but the flash of his eyes signaled the end of his self-control. I scrambled into the passenger’s seat and buckled up. 

Finn waited in the same spot for a long moment. He shook his head like he was clearing out an image and walked around the car, chuckling. “Good choice, but the other way could have been more fun.” 

“Oh, it will be. Just not tonight,” I promised. 


Central Coven #1
Chloë desperately wants a normal life. She wants to go to college, make friends, fall in love, and just be an 18 year old girl. There is only one problem, Chloë is a witch.
Soon after arriving at the university Chloë meets Finn, Anita, and Dean. The four college freshmen become inseperable. Love and friendship blossoms, but their carefree college days are violently interrupted. College students begin to go missing, and so have several powerful supernatural beings. Chloë and her friends are drawn to investigate by a mysterious visitor.

The four learn that the supernatural world has plans and expectations for them, plans they aren't happy with. Can they fight their destiny, or will they learn to accept it?



I've made up stories for as long as I can remember. My teachers accused me of daydreaming too much, so I figured it was only fair to share my fantasies with everyone.

Release Day Blitz! "Audrey Exposed" by Roxy Queen

Audrey Exposed
Author: Roxy Queen
Genre: Erotic Romance
For Audrey her body is her worst enemy. For Graham it’s his biggest temptation.

With his assistance she must embark on a journey to conquer her fears by allowing herself to discover feelings of pleasure, the power of her body and the thrill of sex.

With each revelation they sink deeper into one another, merging into the other’s lives in and outside their protective bubble.

There’s only one goal. One objective and together they’ll break new ground, layer by layer, until Audrey’s exposed.


I wipe my hands on my dress, staring at the numbers 806 on the gold metal plate. This is it, Audrey. You’ll walk in that door a girl and eventually come out a woman.
“I’m such a loser,” I mumble to myself, and twist the doorknob.
A man hops up from the love seat when I enter. He has dark hair and a defined, closely shaved jaw. He’s handsome, definitely not smelly or gross, and strangely familiar.
“Have we met before?” I blurt, trying to place him.
“Um… I don’t think so,” he says, flashing a heart-stopping smile. His eyes meet mine and they’re bluer than blue. Henry Cavill.
“Oh, I saw you going up the elevator last week.”
“Right. Of course, I remember that,” he says with an even brighter smile. Adorable dimples appear on his cheeks. He holds out his hand. “You were loitering in the lobby. I’m Graham.”
 I remember why I’m here and my face burns, surely, turning bright red. I take his hand anyway and say, “Audrey.”
“Right,” I repeat feeling like an idiot.
“Would you like to sit down?” he asks.
“I guess so, thanks.” I take the same spot as the other day but this time I sit in the middle, hoping he doesn’t try to sit next to me. What am I doing here?
Graham sits across from me and says, “I know this is all new for you, but please don’t be uncomfortable. Dr. Markson has told me all about your situation and I just want to help. I think together we have a really good chance of defeating your anxiety.”
His speech is so sincere and he’s giving me the most empathetic smile. I want to die of humiliation. Covering my face with my hands, I groan. “Oh God, this is so embarrassing.”
“Because you know I’m a defective misfit; and you’re here to help me with something I never share with anyone. Like ever, yet you’re just talking about it like its normal.”
“It’s your normal,” he says.
“Yeah. Whatever.” I cross my arms over my chest and nervously look around the room, anywhere but at him. I notice a small black journal on the coffee table. “What’s that?”
“Those are our instructions and guidelines for the day.” He picks the book up, and says, “Want me to read them?”
My stomach burns from anxiety. I want run from the room and never look back. “I guess we may as well see what this is all about.”


Roxy Queen

Roxy lives in the south with her family, two dogs and a semi-feral cat. Her office window looks over a tree-fort and she secretly obsess over the college-aged neighbor down the street, zombies and how much glitter is too much (answer: there's no such thing). All of her books are rooted in a glimmer of reality with a heap of fiction.

I’m Carrie from Books,Coffee and Wine- and well to have the honor to be an advocate to one of the good guys makes me want to throw the sparkle dust all around.  BCW is a group of woman that are indeed moms, we've been around for over a year now, and have built relationships with everyone,  and with the #HUGE help of #TEAMDANE’s Street Team let us plead our case - let us begin the #DANEDEBATE

“I will never kiss another man’s girl…but you’re not his, Laney. You’re not mine…yet. But you’re not his, either. So the way I see it, you’re kissable.”

“I won’t share you, Laney. Not your lips, not your thoughts, not your body, and especially not your heart. You don’t have to give it all to me just yet, but give me nothing if any of it belongs to him. Do you understand?”

“Baby,” I say as I drop a kiss her forehead, “you can plan our dates, tell me what to wear, run the radio,” I wink, “you can even name our kids one day…after Disney characters even. But in the bedroom, the hot tub, against the wall or basically anywhere I have you naked and wet…let me lead.”

Thunderclap PROMO: "Always In" by M.R. Joseph

It's LIVE!!!

Always In by M.R. Joseph is now available for purchase! Happy Release Day!

Always In
The Shore Series #2
My name is Raphael Cruz. I was once a man made up of only flesh and bone. Never feeling, just existing. I indulged in the pleasures that others gave to me, and those I gave to them. That's all it was—pleasure. Physical pleasure. No emotions, no attachments. I didn't need all those feelings, didn't want them. There was no longing for love, no longing to let anyone in. Until I found her. And I gave in.

Harlow Hannum showed me what love was all about. I savored it and held it close, not even knowing I really wanted it in my life. She made me feel loved. She made me accept love. She taught me how to love in return. My heart was open to it all. My heart was hers. It belonged to her. But, she never knew. And then lies, deceit and betrayal forced me to lose the one thing that made me more than a man who just existed.

I should have told her I loved her when I had the chance. I should have told her I gave in to all the powers that love possess.

Will I ever have the chance to tell her? Will my past mistakes never give me that chance?

Now Available!

See where it all started.....

Giving In
The Shore Series #1
Raphael Cruz doesn't do it. He just doesn't. Cruz doesn't fall in love. He's a "get in and get out" kind of guy. Ladies love him and fall all over him for his swoon worthy good looks and overwhelming sex appeal. He knows how to talk to them and tells them exactly what they want to hear. When he's done making them scream his name, he shows them straight to the door. The meaning of the word love doesn't exist in his world. But that could all change with a wink of a girl's eye... And one hot-as-hell romp in a bar bathroom.

Harlow Hannum is your typical girl-next-door. She has the brains, the beauty, and the money. What she doesn't have is the luxury of being someone's first choice in the game of love. She always comes in a distant second place, leaving her guarded with her feelings. Lies, betrayal, and secrets of her past follow her wherever she goes, no matter how hard she tries to hide them. That is until she's reunited with the one guy who can ignite the spark in her heart that's been extinguished for so long.

With sunny days, heated nights, and love lingering in the air in the beach town of Sandy Cove anything can happen. Especially when fate steps in for Harlow and Cruz. Will their blossoming friendship turn into unexpected love or will the collision of their opposing worlds be the end of what could have been?

Review Tour Stop + #Giveaway: "Blindfold Fantasy" by D.L. Roan

Blindfold Fantasy 
by D.L. Roan
Genre: Erotic Romance ~ Menage
A gigolo? To celebrate landing the job of her dreams, architect Jayne Simon’s best friend hired a golden-tanned, tattooed sex god to fulfill her blindfold fantasy. No! No way! How could she possibly do that with him when just looking at his picture makes her blush?

The last thing CEO of Silverland Industries, Devin Kirk, expects to find when he tracks down his troubled best friend in Vegas is an overbooked gigolo-in-training. What the hell was Blake thinking? Staring at Blake’s new client’s hotel room door, blindfold in hand, Devin is soon asking himself that same question. When he said he’d do whatever it took to get Blake to take over his new project, visually impaired sex-for-hire was not in the plan. Neither was having the best night of his life with a woman he would never see.

The sooner Blake gets Devin’s new project off the ground, the sooner he can return to the land of fast booze and faster women and forget all the reasons he left L.A. in the first place. That’s if he survives Devin’s demon-spawned sister, a corporate spy and an unyielding hunger for SI’s newest architect.

WARNING: Blindfold Fantasy is a MFM erotic ménage romance containing sensual sex scenes that will scorch your eReader and two-yes two-angsty sex gods who throw around the "F-word" a little more than is socially acceptable for some sensitive readers. If you can't handle the heat, please stay out of the kitchen...the back seat...the office with a view…the... Yeah, you get the picture.

 I will preface this review with the fact that I absolutely love DL Roan. I fell in love with her Second Chances and Second Nature books last year and I just knew I was in for a treat when I got the synopsis and teasers for this one. After reading this book, I can safely say that she isn’t a one trick pony. She can write! She has the ability to wind you up and set you off….in such an erotic and sexy way. To say that I felt honored to be able to be a part of her tour for this book would be an understatement.

DL really can write a super steamy, sexy HOT ménage scene…..but reading this book, I can see the intense sensuality that played out in this one. This book was such a good, sensual and sexy read. It just was. Oh my gosh…to see a guy that goes into this ‘fantasy’ half-hearted, but comes out deeply affected, yep. DL did THAT. To ME. But on top of all that, I got a good laugh too. For a book to be so intense yet you can still laugh and not pull away from the intense feelings, that was awesome writing on her part. I laughed, I swooned, I lusted (I may be married, but I’m not dead!) and I felt the pain…all the emotions they felt, I felt.


To set it up, based on the synopsis alone…..Jayne has a super outgoing best friend in Roxy. Roxy lives life and enjoys it and they have been the best of friends for years. They have taken care of each other through all their hard times and they are pretty much sisters. To celebrate Jayne’s new big job, Roxy wants to celebrate BIG TIME—Las Vegas style BIG. Jayne is so….so… Quietly beautiful, even though she doesn’t know it, she is always safe in her decisions in life. Roxy is the one that adds the spice of life to her life! Needless to say, Roxy talks her into fulfilling one of her fantasies and Jayne is not too sure about this one!

“Trust me Jay. A man who knows what he’s doing can make you come just by the way he undresses you. You want the whole experience, don’t you? ~Roxy

That is how we meet Devin. Devin is all man….ALL man. Alpha, in control, always has things figured out and gets what he wants, when he wants it. He never settles. He showed up at his best friend’s house and Blake needed some help out with a “job”. I watched as Devin ends up with Jayne this fateful night and just fell into deep love. With a sensual and deep connection that even surprised him after their amazing night together, Devin is seriously shocked at what he feels. The way their night plays out, I really could have read an entire book based on that night alone!!

He had no idea what she looked like or who she was, but there was something infinitely more real and fragile about her; something special he wanted more of.

DL truly put the emotion and sensuality into this part of the story that just made me feel and swoon right along with Jayne. I think it’s safe to say, I fell in love with Devin…..I was in Devin Heaven!! With mind-numbing pleasure caressing Jayne’s body at the hands of Devin, the connection between these two is felt equally powerfully on both sides.

A sharp nip to her inner thigh was followed by the warmth of his tongue, soothing away the sting.

She was drunk on this man’s touch and it felt so unbelievably good to let go of everything and just….feel him.

He took care of her in every way possible…..but it wasn’t an in and out job. Nope. One promised orgasm turned into an entire night of desires and heart stopping, breath stealing moments of pure bliss. I meant it when I said that I could have read an entire book based on this night alone….it was pure sensuality based on senses alone. AAACK!! I loved it!!

If you think for one second that I’m leaving this room before I make you cum around me at least three more times, you can just get that thought right out of your pretty little head, angel. We’re just getting warmed up. ~Devin

So how did Blake worm his way into Jayne’s (and MINE) heart?? Well, I am a firm believer in fate. I love it when it plays out in a book so perfectly and it is actually a believable storyline. Blake is a carefree guy….on the outside. On the inside, he is trying to escape a painful past and live his life happily with no regrets and no pain.  The way he meets Jayne makes the story all that more enticing. Just watching it play out in Jayne’s mind….and then seeing Blake’s realization, yep. It was entertaining to say the least. I loved it. So funny! But Blakey-poo has a naughty side….one that would make a guilty pleasure come to life effortlessly, because he would be riiiiiight next to you enjoying it as well. HOT!!!

Heart stopping affection……that is what the three of them had. Magnetic? Intense? Erotic and sensual? Multiply that by 100 and you might be getting close. It was a force they had no control over.

The feelings they stirred inside her could never be described in a single human language.

However, the heavy pull on my heartstrings was evident when a problem arose, and we shall name that problem BITCH. To see them go through something so heartbreaking for as strong as they were caused by something so evil and so blindsiding, I truly felt the pain. It gave a whole new meaning to keeping your enemies close….

Some things are just hot……and DL really knows how to write a sexy and steamy ménage scene. I was so invested in this storyline. I felt a part of it….I was feeling their emotions, their love, the intensity between them and the heartache they went through. You want a good ménage story that is intense and believable and insanely sexy….pick up this book. I mean it. DL is easily one of my favorites, but I would never lie about something so important.

Excellent writing. Excellent story. Excellent characters. Excellent all around.

Her body was no longer hers. They were truly one in that very moment; one body, one soul, one fantasy come true.

5 super sensual and steamy stars. I can’t say it enough how deeply I felt the emotions in this book. Mind numbing, soul searching, heart stopping love. It was all there. It’s yours for the reading.

Release Celebration: Review and #Giveaway! "Come to Me Softly" by A.L. Jackson

Happy Release Day to A.L Jackson as we celebrate her new book Come to Me Softly!!

CTMS Release Celebration Facebook Banner


The Come Closer Series #2

From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Quietly comes
a scorching new adult romance in the Closer to You series.
A second chance at life…
A second chance at love…
  Jared Holt never thought he deserved either—until he found both in the arms of Aly Moore. Aly has loved Jared for as long as she can remember, and she’s more than ready for the future they’re making together. But Jared can’t help remembering his own family. And he’ll never forgive himself for what happened to them. How can he allow himself the very happiness he once destroyed? To live a life worthy of Aly, Jared knows he has to stop running and finally put his past to rest. But when he decides to face his demons head on, he encounters more than he bargained for: a dangerous mix of jealousy, lies, and dishonest intentions. When those intentions threaten Aly, Jared loses all control, giving into the rage that earned him his bad boy reputation years before. And he’ll fight to protect her no matter what it costs…even if he destroys himself in the process.

5 Stars!

If you have yet to read Come To Me Quietly, book one in The Come Closer Series, I highly suggest you stop reading here. You HAVE to read that book prior to this one. The plot picked up right where book one ended. And trust me, you do NOT want to miss out on meeting Jared. <3

"I'd always believed love wasn't something I deserved. I didn't get happiness."

Brilliantly emotional! A.L. Jackson has a way with words that fully grabs you from beginning to end. Come To Me Softly is a beautifully heartbreaking story you MUST read. Can't stress this enough. I fell in love with Jared and Aly in book one, Come To Me Quietly, and now, I'm in #HEA heaven!! Jared is that broken and tortured hero you can't help but root for. I wanted him to get his happy ending so desperately. I craved it. I needed it. Suffice it to say, A.L. Jackson delivered it....with excellence!

"I loved this man, the beauty and the heart, and every single flaw."

Jared was still haunted by his horrible his heavy-as-lead guilt. His memories overshadowed his present......his future. But Aly didn't allow him to give into that darkness. She stood by his side, guided him, and supported him in every way possible. She helped him realize -- truly feel in his heart -- that he belonged there....with her. He'd already taken the very huge, first step. And that was coming back to her, so Aly knew -- she believed -- Jared was home.

Unfortunately, that was easier said than done. Jared didn't want to face his past. He ignored it. He'd rather live pretending nothing happened, yet, he was very much still haunted by everything. So really, how can they move forward when the past was still holding on so strong? How could they really start their family when just the thought of his family broke Jared down?

"I've only belonged to one person, Aly, and that's you."

Trust me, this book was nothing short of an emotional roller coaster. It took me through one hell of a journey and I honestly loved every minute of it. I did NOT want to put this book down. Jared and Aly's story was far from easy in book one, and it was just as tough, if not more, during this one. They faced more challenges that at the end, only brought them closer. Like I mentioned in the beginning, I could not have asked for a better or happier ending. My heart is elated. That ending was simply breathtaking.

This book...hell, this series, truly tugged at my heart. It has left a HUGE mark and I will never forget these characters or their heartfelt journey. 

I cannot wait for Christopher's book!!! Seriously....cannot....wait.

I HIGHLY recommend this book!!! HIGHLY.

"When beauty breathes life back into the broken."



Come to Me Quietly
The Closer to You Series #1
Aleena Moore is content with her life. She has goals and dreams and an easy smile. She also has a secret she holds locked inside. Jared Holt believes he doesn’t deserve to love or be loved. He destroys everything he touches. Haunted by the mistake that shattered his life, he’s fled from the memory of that pain. Jared doesn’t know why he’s compelled to return, but finds himself drawn back to the place where it all began. The exact place where it ended. When he runs into his childhood best friend, Aleena’s older brother Christopher, he agrees to share Christopher and Aleena’s apartment while he looks for a place of his own. Aleena is no longer the little girl Jared remembers from his past and evokes feelings in him he never wanted to feel again. Terrified of destroying her, he fights to keep her away. But her touch is something he can’t resist—the touch that sealed his fate. Their pasts are intertwined and their futures uncertain. The only truths they know are the secrets they whisper in the night.
