Book Spotlight: Seduced in Secret by Shiloh Walker

Book Spotlight: Seduced in Secret by Shiloh Walker Release Day Spotlight: About the Book: Best laid plans…are meant to be broken. Life laid out, Tessa had everything set. Engaged to marry the perfect man, a rich, great-looking doctor, she was content with her life, or so she thought. Then the gift arrived. Delivered to her office on Valentine’s Day, it was filled with handcuffs, sexy little toys and a suggestive little card. It wasn’t from her fiancé, either. When the emails and the phone started coming, she should have been able to brush them off, except the man said something that left her uneasy…and not because he scared her, but because he was right. Your fiancé will never make you happy, Tessa. Confused, she starts looking at her fiancé, her life…and other things…in a whole new light. One of the things she finds herself considering is her best friend and neighbor, Caleb. He’s always been there. Even when he spent years in the Navy, Caleb was the one she could count on and now isn’t any different. He’s there to listen when she needs an ear and he’s got nice, strong shoulders when she needs one to lean on. It doesn’t her long to realize that one thing is certain—her fiancé can’t make her happy. But now she doesn’t know whether she wants to take a chance on her sexy secret admirer…or Caleb, the man who’s been there waiting for her all along. It includes a short bonus story called Don’t Walk Away. Read an excerpt on Shiloh’s blog HERE Seduced in Secret was previously published as Whipped Cream and Handcuffs.

Review: Misery’s Way by J.C. Daniels

Review: Misery’s Way by J.C. Daniels Misery’s Way Author: J.C. Daniels Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Frankie is a non-human of unknown origin. She keeps her true nature and identity hidden for fear of being captured, or worse. She’s torn by her dark side, which craves and needs misery and suffering. However, she also has a side that longs to heal and fix pain. She balances both parts by posing as a faith healer; however now that someone has discovered Frankie, it’s time to move on. Misery’s Way is a short story told from the first person POV of Frankie. It is set in the Colbana Files world, and although not told from Kit’s POV, the story is germane to Kit’s whole journey and the overall series. So, it’s a “must read” for series regulars, and probably not the best place for newbies to begin. And honestly, if I hadn’t read all of the books in the series, I would have been lost at times. One issue I had with Misery’s Way was the feeling of disconnectedness as the story jumped from scene to scene, especially when Frankie explores Kit’s memories. And with that, I have mixed feelings about Misery’s Way. First, the story is VERY SHORT and is more like the prologue to the next book, albeit told from someone else’s POV. Second, the book ends at the 38% mark of the mobi version, followed by a previously released novella (which I’ve already read and reviewed), and then an excerpt from the author’s upcoming sci-fi title. With those two things in mind, I struggled to understand why this short story wasn’t integrated into the next full-length title rather than left as a stand alone story. Granted, it is from another person’s view point, and it does add value to the overall series and world, but it just felt so incomplete, it left me frustrated. Overall, the storyline is interesting. I enjoyed reading about Frankie and her partner, Saleel. However, I’m so used to reading from Kit’s POV, I struggled a bit with confusion when reading the book from Frankie’s POV, especially when she shared page time with Kit. However, Frankie and Saleel both intrigued me, and I expect they will be a large part of an upcoming Kit book based on what happens between Kit and Frankie. I honestly look forward to that, regardless of my frustration with this story in particular. Misery’s Way is an interesting and intriguing addition to the Colbana...

Book Spotlight: The Professor’s Student by Bronwyn Green

Book Spotlight: The Professor’s Student by Bronwyn Green About the Book: Six weeks in Ireland on a Bronze Age archeological dig is exactly what Josie Cooper needs. She loves teaching, but fieldwork is where her heart is, and working with Professor Declan O’Shaughnessy is a dream come true…until she meets the man. Declan is brilliant, gorgeous, and unapologetically arrogant. By the end of the first week, Josie is ready to push him into the Atlantic. Unfortunately, annoyance doesn’t stop her physical reaction to him. Nor does it stop the way every accidental touch makes her crave more. More of his hands on her skin. More of his lilting voice in her ear. Knowing Josephine Cooper’s reputation in the archeology world, Declan is thrilled that she’d accepted his invitation to work the dig. However, he hadn’t counted on his overwhelming attraction to the American professor. Though he tries to maintain his distance and keep things professional between them, that plan goes to hell when he learns that Josephine returns his interest. And when an opportunity to act on that attraction, as well as explore her submission, presents itself, he jumps at it—taking complete control. For the next five weeks, Josie agrees to submit to Declan. His instruction awakens needs she didn’t know she possessed, and she learns more about desire and herself than she would have thought possible. But what happens when their time is over, and Josie has to give up being his student to go back to being the professor again? Excerpt: Note: This excerpt falls more into the NSFW side of steamy than PG-13. Warning… it’s hot stuff! Josie stared down at the remaining bit of metal in her palm and fought to keep from hyperventilating. Declan wanted her to put these little torture devices on her nipples. And wander around this pub without a bra. “The loo is right back there,” he pointed out helpfully, a wicked smile curving his lips and excitement brightening his seawater-colored eyes. “Okay.” She sighed. “Okay…?” He was clearly waiting for something. It clicked. “Okay, Professor.” She felt a little silly saying it, but a perverse thrill also shot through her veins as she did. He nodded his approval, and she pushed her chair away from the table and walked back to the bathroom on trembling legs. She was really doing this. She was going to submit to Declan. She was going to let him do god knew what kinds of kinky things to her. And it was starting,...

Book Spotlight: Into the Aether by PJ Schnyder

Book Spotlight: Into the Aether by PJ Schnyder From the Author: This collection of short stories is the beginning of an adventure for me in many ways. For one thing, I love writing steampunk adventures for feisty, strong heroines and I plan to continue doing so. I’m delighted to be able to include Evie, Phailin, and Cadence in this first anthology. For another, I’ve been considering self-publishing–or indie–for quite some time and have launched the self-pub aspect of my hybrid career with this collection. It is important to me to maintain quality in all aspects of the production of this book from authoring and editing to cover design and layout. I hope readers of either the ebook format or the print format will appreciate the attention to detail I strove to adhere to with my editor(s), cover artist, and layout team. This is the beginning, and I hope you will all enjoy the adventure! I’ve got an Amazon giveaway running to celebrate the official release of Into the Aether. I hope you’ll enter and give my steampunk collection a try! https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/abb6874f3894e673 About the Book: Journey Into the Aether with award-winning author PJ Schnyder in a collection of daring and sometimes explosive adventures: In Evie’s Gift, Evie travels to England with her brother to find a sponsor for her first season in London.

In A Swan in Siam, Agent John M. Alvey of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences searches for the source of a swan feather of peculiar properties in the court of the King of Siam and encounters both an assassin and a living legend.

Book Spotlight: Drawn That Way by Bronwyn Green

Book Spotlight: Drawn That Way by Bronwyn Green About the Book: Tristan Weaver, accountant for a successful video game company, is in way over her head. Honestly answering a company-wide survey and criticizing the sexist stereotypes used in the company’s games was enough to catch her boss’ attention.  But speculating on his sex life within his earshot has unexpected consequences when her hot, but nerdy, boss invites her to model for him. Owner, artist and lead developer of Brecken Games, Rory Brecken, has a strict no fraternizing with employees rule. However, when he overhears Tristan’s conversation with her friend about his rumored kinks and begins to suspect her curiosity about the submissive side of sex, he’s more than a little tempted. When her interest is undeniably confirmed, he suggests a onetime only, colleagues-with-benefits hook-up. Though neither want a relationship, once isn’t enough for either one of them. As their encounters become more intense, Rory makes a huge mistake that may cost him the woman he’s coming to love. Excerpt: The imprint of Rory’s hands had been seared into Tris’ shoulders. She swore she could still feel his touch as she pushed up on her elbows and stared at him. What had been an easy camaraderie moments before seemed to vanish into thin air. He glanced at her, then away, as if he were uncomfortable again. Of course, that may have been because she’d been lying there wanting him to kiss her, and it had been painfully obvious. That was more than enough to make someone pull back. She was an idiot. She’d let her libido get away from her and imagined an attraction where there was none. He extended his hand toward her, and she took it, letting him pull her up off the mat with a surprising amount of strength. Releasing her, he walked to the camera, turned it off and removed it from the tripod. “You’re really good at this,” he tossed over his shoulder as she picked up their swords from the mat. “Any chance you’d be willing to come in and do it again? I have a feeling we could get a lot of usable footage.” “Yeah. I could definitely do that.” “I’d pay you, of course.” She shrugged. “You don’t have to. This was a better workout than going to the gym. And a lot more fun.” Granted, she wouldn’t mind the money, but she’d feel guilty getting paid for something she’d do for free. He shook his head, frowning slightly. “I’d feel better about...

But when his past catches up to him, threatening the life of an innocent, he must place his trust in the hands of a woman with a deadly secret in order to save more lives than his own. Excerpt: A moment later, a dark-haired woman stormed into the room. The door slammed against the wall as she headed straight for their trauma bay. Her bright blue glare fixed on the boy, and her lips were set in a thin line. Annoyed, Bastian stepped in front of her. “Miss, you can’t be in here until I remove the bullet from his stomach.” She faced him and narrowed her eyes. He swore he saw a slight color shift before she glanced away. “He’s my son, and he can’t be here.” Forcing himself to calm down, he held her narrowed-eyed glare. “I’m afraid your son may need surgery.” “He can’t stay here,” she repeated, shaking her head and darting her gaze to the door. “Your son has been shot.” He kept his tone low. “I can have a nurse show you to the waiting area.” The muscles in her temples flexed as if she clenched her jaw. She glanced around,...
