Genre: Romantic Suspense
Series: The Men of FTI, Book 3

She never thought she’d see him again. Not after what she’d done to them…

Sarah Cosgrove wakes from labor and emergency surgery to find her soul mate staring down at her. It’s been six years since she’s seen the face of the only man she’s ever loved. Since she broke Logan’s heart.

Logan Harper, a skilled killing machine and top ranking member of Fairlane Trade International, entered a hostage situation, expecting the task to be quick and easy. It becomes anything but when he finds Sarah—the woman who broke his heart six years ago—giving birth to another man’s baby. When she tells him her life is in danger from the powerful and abusive father of her child, Logan has no choice but to protect the woman he once loved and her newborn baby, but he vows to never love her again.

As they trek through Europe to get to safety, the mystery of the last six years begins to unfold, sparks fly, and emotions rise to the surface. Can Logan keep the love of his life safe without letting her back in his heart? Can Sarah learn to trust a man again after being abused? Will soulmates reunite?


Seduction in Sierra Leone, Book #1:
Seduction in Seville, Book #2:
Seduction in Scotland, Book #3: NEW RELEASE!

Initially, I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book and connecting with the characters, and to be honest, I'm not sure I ever did fully connect with Sarah or Logan, BUT—and it's a big one— the plot line was CAPTIVATING. This book had me HOOKED. The Logan and Sarah's story was fast-paced, action-packed, HOT, suspenseful, and truly addictive! Logan was a DELICIOUS alpha male through and through! 

Some of my favorite scenes in Seduction in Scotland were the flashbacks. We got to see Sarah and Logan meet and get to know each other while still in school!! Logan loved her from day one and it was swoon-worthy seeing him be very protective of her from the very beginning! There were parts during the book that I found myself feeling like I was at the edge of my seat! I knew Logan would stop at nothing to protect Sarah and Maddie, so it made me a tad nervous at times! 

Once I got into the book, I did not want to stop reading. I needed to know how everything would unfold and I needed to know the ending—which I FLOVED!

If you're in the mood for a thrilling novel that will surely make your heart race, Seduction in Scotland is the book for you!

“Sarah?” She blinked at him. A small smile formed on her lips. She looked tired, but happy. Her eyes seemed to hold a secret. Like there was something she had just learned that made everything all right. Logan watched as the light in her blue eyes grew dim, but the smile remained. 

“Sarah.” Logan put his hands on either side of her face. His fingers speared through her hair. 

“Take care…of her, Logan. Don’t let him find her. He can’t find her.” She pulled in a shallow breath. “Always loved you. Was always yours,” she whispered to him. She smiled a bit more, and then that was it. Her eyes closed gently. Her chest slowly fell. The heart monitor flat lined. Logan stared, unwilling to believe his eyes. Unwilling to believe his ears. He could hear the baby was still crying as they checked her over. Her lungs sounded healthy. 

He listened as the other doctors worked between Sarah’s legs, one pushing on her stomach. Sarah’s limp body moved from the pressure of the doctor’s hand. And then reality came crashing in at the same time a wave of heat spread over his body like fire. Sarah’s chest didn’t move. He watched another beat, not believing what he was seeing. No. Logan roared. His face never left hers as he roared to the fates. His whole body shook with anger and disbelief as he bellowed his denial.

“Sarah! No! No! Help her!” he howled to the doctors. A middle-aged male nurse was suddenly next to him and tried to push Logan out of the way. 

“Sir!” The nurse had his hands on Logan’s arms. No one would be able to move him from her side without his approval. 

“Sir, you need to move so I can help her.” The nurse spoke in heavily accented English. Numbly, Logan moved away from the one woman he had ever loved, from the one person who could bring him to his knees. 

He stumbled back as he watched the doctors and nurses work frantically to bring her back. Another nurse walked over to him and placed something in his arms. He gazed down. And he saw the most beautiful baby in the world. And just as Sarah was and had always been, so too, was Madeline. She was his.


Olivia Night, a fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.

Until him.
He makes the numbness go away.
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers.
A gilded prison.
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to.
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon…

I live by a code. The Vory code.
In this mafiya world, there are traditions.

And make her my wife.

RUSH by CA Harms
Montgomery Men #1
Genre: Romantic Suspense
I was running from my husband, a man I thought I’d known. Running from the hell he had put me through.

He’d nearly destroyed the woman I had once been and I would do whatever it took to regain my freedom.

I would lie, and cheat. I would steal if it meant that I never had to go back there.

I’d run and keep running…

But there was one problem. I hadn’t planned for Ashton Montgomery.

He was a distraction I couldn’t allow. Not if I wanted to stay safe. I had to remain distant, but he was relentless and had other ideas.

I caved because I hadn’t thought it all through, not in detail.

If I had I would’ve realized that you can only live in a fantasy world for so long before everything came crashing in around you.

And those lives you’ve destroy along the way, make you no better than the monster you were trying to break free from.

How could I have been so careless? It wasn’t meant to turn out this way. But the Rush of my freedom took control and I forgot how important it was to keep the secret of who I had once been.

And now I had nothing…

Only the fear that the man I’d run from would find me again, and finish what he started.



I'm not sure what the author did while writing this novel, but OH.EM.GEE. she certainly NAILED it. Now, I've LOVED all her other books, but this one....this one was just so much better!! WOW! I was HOOKED and I seriously could not put this book down. The story line had more depth, more emotion...GAH! I don't know quite how to explain it, but this book was just EPIC. 

Ashton was DELICIOUS and Kinsley was a strong heroine. I loved how despite Ash being an alpha male, he knew how to treat and love Kinsley, especially after everything she had been through. I loved seeing her character grow and come out of her shell alongside Asheton. It was truly heart-warming. 

The plot had angst-driven scenes, hot and passionate moments, and some humor too (LOVED LEX!). Ashton's brothers we SO DAMN SEXY TOO, I cannot help but feel all kinds of excited to see what Ms. Harms has up her sleeves for this series. 


C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.

LAST DANCE by @ZoeBlackwood: #BookTour #Giveaway #Review

LAST DANCE by Zoe Blackwood
A Novella

My name is Parker, and this is my story. It is Joey’s story as much as it is mine, because she is the girl that I will love until I take my last breath. She is the light in the darkest corner and the person whose hand I hope to hold on my last day.

We never know when that might be: The end. The last dance. I didn’t know when mine would be. I didn’t know a lot of things. The best lessons in life hurt the most. That was the thing about betraying the person you loved, there was no way to take it back.

If you can, learn from my mistakes. We never realize what matters the most until we’re faced with losing it, and sometimes not until it’s gone.


— Short Excerpt —
As soon as it was in place, a jeweled crown over her brown hair, I was tossed back to that first night outside the theater when I’d noticed her standing there in a little dress that hugged her figure. Her hair was swaying and she was smiling that big, incredible smile she had when she was mostly unaware of how captivating and beautiful she was.

First off, I want to say how much I loved reading about Joey and Parker. Parker LOVED Joey so much and the author made an excellent job in making that clear as day! I LOVE it when I am able to fully connect with characters while readingit's always a huge, personal plus. 

Parker had made some mistakes, but being able to live everything with him made me understand him and root for him. While LAST DANCE is a short, quick read it's packed emotion and depth. It certainly does not lack anything, in my opinion.

If you're in the mood for a swoon-worthy book boyfriend, this is definitely the book for you!

Zoe Blackwood is a pseudonym for author, Kim Streible. She resides in Kentucky, surrounded by various wildlife and dogs, because as long as she can remember, there's always been a dog in the house. She hates getting lost on back country roads and sushi. She loves Batman, music and 80's romantic comedies.

Release Date: August 1, 2016

I live a life most could only dream of. Parties, women, fame—what more could I want?

As the undisputed MMA light heavyweight champ, I’ve faced the world’s toughest men. But, with a single glance, I knew that the five-foot-five redhead with a smart mouth and innocent eyes would be my hardest opponent yet.

Sidney O’Neil isn’t my type. While I spend my nights out drinking at the trendiest clubs in town, she spends hers taking care of her sick nephew. She lives for those she loves, and I only love myself. She is nothing I thought I wanted, yet she’s somehow become the one thing I need.

But what happens when the world is tipped on end and I’m no longer who she needs?

How do I convince her that we’re worth the fight when all she knows is defeat?

I’ve never lost a match, and I refuse to start now.

But, sometimes, the toughest fight of your life is outside the cage.


— REVIEW: 4-4.5 STARS —
This was a book  I was NOT expecting! It was better, actually!! Breccan was delicious (totally hoping he'd be!), but he was also so much more! He was not just a MMA fighter, he was completely captivating and swoon-worthy! His relationship with Connor was heart-warming.

It was clear as day that meeting Sidney was not something Breccan wanted or imagined. It certainly was everything he needed though....and then some. Sidney (and Connor) changed his life...improved it. They made Breccan a better man, a man he deep inside always was.

UNDISPUTED will make you cry. I promise you that much, but it will also make you swoon and smile. FANTASTIC debut, novel Ms. Teague!!

I’m nervous about what I’m going to say. I’m not sure how she’ll react or if she will even believe me. Afraid I’ll chicken out, though, so I start talking.
“I’m sorry.” The words were surprisingly hard to get out. Apologizing is not something I’ve done often, and I’m not even sure I know how to do it properly.
Sidney raises her eyebrows and presses her lips together. I study her face for any indication of what she’s thinking and notice that her eyes are pink and puffy, like she’s been crying.
The guilt I’ve recently begun experiencing returns. I’m sure I’m the reason for her tears, and the thought of her crying because of me kills. I cup her jaw in my hand before lightly rubbing her cheek with my thumb.
Her eyelids flutter shut and she sighs while tilting her face into my palm. Her reaction gives me the fuel I need to keep going. I pull my hand away, but I’m not ready to stop touching her, so I grab her hand.
“I’m an asshole, Sid. I’ve always been a selfish prick. I’ve never had anyone care about me though, so I’ve always had to be the one to care about me the most. I’m used to doing what I want, getting what I want, and taking what I want. I don’t know how to care about others.” I scrub my palm over my thigh.
“That’s not true, Breccan. I’ve seen you—”
I cut her off with a shake of my head. “I’m a virgin, Sidney,” I say solemnly.
A short burst of laughter escapes her mouth, and she shakes her head. “Yeah, right, Breccan. Do I have ‘dumbass’ stamped on my forehead?” She laughs again.
I rush to explain myself. “Well, I mean, not a virgin virgin. I’m a relationship virgin. I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing here. Hell, I had more finesse the first time I had sex than I do with this whole boyfriend thing.”
Her eyes widen at the word boyfriend, but she only says, “Oh.” Then she takes her hand from mine and brings her thumb to her mouth to chew on the nail.
Disappointed at the loss of contact with her skin, I pull her hand out of her mouth and lace my fingers through hers once again. “After you left, I went to my favorite club.” I purposely leave the part about destroying my kitchen out. “I couldn’t even get out of the car, Sidney. I sat there staring at the people dying to get inside and all I could think about was that I was dying to get out of that life. I don’t want to go to the clubs anymore. I’m tired of that shit. I just want to be with you. Here. On this couch. Eating fucking sushi if that’s what you want.”
I grimace, and she giggles.
It’s the fucking truth. Sitting in my car outside of Raw, all I could think about was how desperately I wanted to feel Sidney’s lips on mine and have her scent in my nose. I would have gladly choked down a pound of that crap if it meant I could go back and undo our fight and what I’d said.
“I’m sorry I freaked out when you called yourself my girlfriend.”
Her face falls.
I use my free hand to tip her chin up before I confess, “I don’t know how to do this. I have nothing to compare this to.” I use my hand to gesture between us. “But I can tell you that I want you. I want to hear you laugh. I want to make you smile. I want to hold you when you cry.” I run my thumb across her cheek. “I can tell you that I need you. I need your mouth on mine, your hair in my hands, your skin under my fingertips” Taking a chance, I lean in and place a light kiss on her lips.
She doesn’t pull away, so I continue speaking.
“I can tell you that no one else makes me laugh the way you do. No one else makes me feel stronger than you do. I miss you all the fucking time, Sid. Every minute of the day that I’m not with you, I’m dying to see you. My phone dings and I hope it’s you. When it’s not, I’m always so fucking bummed.” Lifting my shoulders in a shrug, I admit, “I’ve never felt this way about another person before, and I’m fumbling around like a kid trying to cop his first feel in the dark. I didn’t realize until tonight that I want you to be my girlfriend. I want to do all the cheesy couple things that people do—with you. And, Sidney, I’m really sorry I didn’t remember you from the club. I don’t know how I could have possibly forgotten you. But it’s not because you are forgettable. Because, ever since you fell down your fucking stairs, I haven’t been able to get you out of my head. And I don’t want to.” I blow out a breath when I finish and glance away from her penetrating gaze.

A.S. Teague enjoys the warmth of South Carolina with her husband and two daughters. The stereotypes about peach cobbler and sweet tea are not overstated. After years in the medical field, she is now enjoying every minute of being a stay-at-home mom. She loves wine, the beach, wine on the beach, and crying at Disney movies. When she doesn’t have a book in her hand, she can be found pestering her husband with pictures of animals she wants to rescue, as well as debating whether to exercise or take a nap.

“Running is easy, but staying and fighting for love is difficult. Choose wisely.”

OMG. I am absolutely IN LOVE with Rhett and Darby. I loved how much they loved each other! SUCH PASSION and INTENSE CHEMISTRY! Holy hotness—the pages sizzled!

“Rhett,” I whisper onto his lips. Instead of responding, he kisses me gently. “Why do you make it so easy to fall in love with you?”

Rhett and Darby go through a TON of hardships, and by a ton, I mean A TON. Their lives weren't easy, by any means, and their relationship wasn't either. They battled inner demons and outside forces that were very much against them. It was heart-wrenching at times to read, but in the end, everything was worth the pain. Have tissues ready. I promise you will need them.

Overall, I truly loved this book more than book 1, Dirty, which I devoured, by the way! Rhett and Darby were PERFECT for each other in every way possible. Their love story is HOT, raw, passionate, and heart-breaking all at once! It's quite the roller coaster, but one I highly recommend! FIVE FILTHY STARS!
