Wait for Me Duo

Wait for Me (The Montgomery Brothers, Book #1) by Samantha Chase is a refreshing and sweet beginning into the world of The Montgomery Family. Lucas Montgomery was a promising NFL star until an injury sidelined him and erased his dreams of professional sports in a split second. Now a life of solitude is what he prefers, at least that’s what everyone thinks.

Emma Taylor has worked for the Montgomery’s for a while and has secretly admired Lucas from afar. Mr. Montgomery senior, her boss, has noticed her desire for his son Lucas and feels that perhaps a little matchmaking might lure this recluse out of hiding. However, Lucas prefers to have very little contact in the office and that is where the fun begins.

Unfortunately this meddling matchmaker isn’t aware there’s a blizzard on the way. When a simple request to deliver a package leads to one unexpected detour, will Emma forgive either of the Montgomery men for what happens next?

Can Lucas admit his true feelings towards Emma or will he continue to push people away? If only he could stop hiding the truth and stop living with physical and emotional pain maybe he’d have no regrets.

Signals get crossed just when Emma thinks she’s finally figured Luke out.  When it all comes to a boil, Luke has a lot of explaining to do. Will Emma listen to him or keep him on the bench permanently?

I received this book from the publisher for a fair and honest review. This first book is available as a stand alone or you can buy the first two books as a bundle. Either way- it’s a must read!

Trust in Me (The Montgomery Brothers, Book #2)

In this second installment of the Montgomery Brothers it’s all about Jason Montgomery, the regimented and workaholic brother who thinks that every woman looking to work for him wants to sleep with him too. Convinced that there isn’t a woman out there who will fill the requirements, he allows his dad to find a solution. What happens when he gives his dad one simple request for his upcoming travel itinerary is where the adventure begins. Can Mr. Montgomery curb his matchmaking itch?

Maggie Barrett has a secret and working with the Montgomery family has kept her hidden and she’s been just fine with that. What will happen when Jason discovers the real reason Maggie has kept hidden at work? Determined to not let the past guide her she vows to stick to the plan. Unfortunately Jason missed that memo. Will Maggie be able to trust again? Will Jason realize what he needs before it’s too late?

Me

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

Romance and politics become a deadly combination in this thrilling book from four #mustread #AwesomeAuthors

11701370_10205543720644847_1156339885_o Capital Danger

Capitol Danger is a collaborative story in four parts by authors Suzanne Ferrell, Jeanne Adams, Nancy Northcott and J.D. Tyler. It’s the night of the Inaugural Balls in Washington, DC and the setting is at one of the swankiest hotels in town. Everyone is there undercover and no one knows who they can trust. Which missions will be compromised? Whose paths will cross?

This joint effort begins with Unmasked (an Edgars Family Novella) by Suzanne Ferrell as we discover that the hotel is under siege and the attackers are still unknown. Luke Edgars and Abigail Whitson have one job and when the unexpected happens, will they be able to save themselves and their mission? Luke and Abigail must work as a team and when secrets surface will it distract them or keep them on point? Suzanne has written four books with sexy and edgy Edgars men.

Once again, she delivers us a great story with Luke and Abigail. Can they make it through the gunfire with their love intact? Maybe a little gunfire is what they need to put their relationship into perspective and finally commit to each other. The perfect beginning to this on-the-edge-of-your-seat story.

Looking for more from those sexy Edgars men? Check out Suzanne’s series Edgars Family Novels, there are plenty to choose from.

Death Under Glass (Deadly Charms novella) by Jeanne Adams continues the inaugural evening by introducing us to Edward Millner and Retta Geminous who are there to celebrate Retta’s glasswork that is decorating the room for the gala. Everything is sparkling and shimmering in red, white and blue until the room is attacked. When bullets fly and her work is shattered it will take everything to ensure that Edward and Retta make it out alive. Edward’s past as a Special Force medic will surprise many, can he shake what happened in his past to survive the night in one piece?

Pay attention readers. Just when you think you have it all figured out the story shakes things up and turns on the heat. Take note of the little touches in this novella, Jeanne is a master with those fine details and plot twists.

Looking for more action? Jeanne’s #FaithfulDefenders series starts with Dead Run and it’s fantastic. Check out my reviews here: everyone-needs-a-faithful-defender-that-will-protect-and-serve.

Wait, there’s more…check out this teaser for Dead Reckoning here:https://booksilovealatte.wordpress.com/2015/07/03/icymi-heres-a-teaser-for-dead-reckoning-by-jeanne-adams/

The Deadly Charms series is forthcoming. So, check out her previous books that are just as fabulous!

Danger’s Edge (An Arachnid Files Novella) by Nancy Northcott is a tale of agent versus agent. Everyone is suspect and secrets are piling up as fast as the bodies are in this siege. The tension between Greg Reed and Kelsey Mitchell is fantastic and the banter is superb. All I can say is there is a moment that I went from on the edge of my seat to laughing out loud. What will happen when Kelsey must reveal her identity to save herself? Will Greg give in to his feelings or just add her to one more body on the casualty list? After his last mission he was injured and recovering, will he be able to respond when lives are on the line?

I have read Nancy’s Mage series and she’s just as amazing at straight suspense. From sexy mage’s to edgy FBI agent’s Nancy writes stellar suspense books with edgy FBI agents in this world to sexy mage’s from beyond. While each of her books can be read as a stand alone I enjoyed reading them in order.

Check out my reviews here for Sentinel:
A Mage, an Artist and a whole lot of chemistry make this one fantastic sexy paranormal romance novella to start the series!

Warrior: https://booksilovealatte.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/a-mage-an-artist-and-a-whole-lot-of-chemistry-make-this-one-fantastic-sexy-paranormal-romance-novella-to-start-the-series/

Lethal Target (An Armed and Deadly Novella) by J.D. Tyler ends our adventurous evening with Dalton McCoy and Jolie Montfort at the hotel. Jolie is a reporter looking for a scoop and will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. An Inaugural Ball is the perfect place to get a hot story from politicians and constituents while they are having a great time and drinking it up.

Dalton McCoy wants nothing more than to be back in Texas with his target apprehended and behind bars. When his mission is compromised, will he have the strength to finish it out? Can he trust Jolie to keep his identity a secret?

Who will finally be the one to catch the maniac leader of the terrorist group that everyone has been hunting for, throughout this multilayered and complex, but gripping set of connected stories?

This anthology is brilliant, well written and seamless as we journey from one story to the next. Each author brings her own voice and unique style to this collection and the collaboration is absolutely genius. Every detail is figured out from beginning to end and there are no holes or loose ends. From the hotel layout to the plot that weaves into and out of each story, it all works and leaves you satisfied with one seriously crazy Ball and a bunk of hunky agents!

If you have never read J.D. Tyler, or any of these three suspenseful Romance Bandit’s books I suggest you download this book now and then dive into each of these author’s backlists. There are so many great books to choose from, from each of these authors and they are all must read delights!

J11715030_10205543756045732_1072337318_o JD Bio pic

National Bestselling Author J.D. Tyler is best known for her dark, sexy paranormal series Alpha Pack, and the popular Firefighters of Station Five and Sugarland Blue series under her pseudonym Jo Davis. PRIMAL LAW, the first book in her Alpha Pack series, is the winner of the National Reader’s Choice Award in Paranormal. She’s also been a multiple finalist in the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence, a finalist for the Bookseller’s Best Award, has captured the HOLT Medallion Award of Merit, and has been a two-time nominee for the Australian Romance Readers Award in romantic suspense.

J.D.’s books regularly appear on the Barnes and Noble, Neilson Bookscan, BooksOnBoard, and Amazon bestseller lists, among others, and she was named by BooksOnBoard as their #1 Bestselling Romance Author.

When she isn’t writing, J.D.’s idea of a good time certainly isn’t cleaning house (sniff), bungee jumping (not in this lifetime, or the next), or camping (her idea of “roughing it” is a slow bellboy). She enjoys reading, being pampered like the diva she is, and spending time with her awesome family. J.D. lives in Texas with her two kids, a spoiled Boston terrier, and two cats.

Professional portrait - JPA 2012

Although Jeanne Adams likes calling North Carolina home, she lives in DC, where The Tentacle Affaire is set, and often jogs on the C&O towpath with her dogs. Her favorite holiday is Halloween. She starts planning the annual yard decor on November 1. Alas, in this case however, the “Adams Family” – one husband, two sons and three dogs – is all bark and no bite.

On another spooky note, Jeanne used to work in the funeral and cemetery business, and knows a thing or two about getting rid of the body….bwhahahah! (She even teaches classes about it to other writers!)

Jeanne has written suspense novels for Kensington/Zebra Publishing since 2007. THE TENTACLE AFFAIRE, her first urban fantasy/romance, was released in Nov, 2014, along with two new Romantic Suspense Novellas, DEADLY DELIVERY and BEHIND ENEMY LINES. A short story, featured in TINY TREATS #2, St. Patrick’s Day, heralds a new series which will start next year.

Nancy_headshot_new

Nancy Northcott’s childhood ambition was to grow up and become Wonder Woman. Around fourth grade, she realized it was too late to acquire Amazon genes, but she still loved comic books, science fiction, fantasy and YA romance.

Her debut novel, Renegade, received a starred review from Library Journal. The reviewer called it “genre writing at its best.” Nancy is a three-time RWA Golden Heart finalist and has won the Maggie, the Molly, the Emerald City Opener, and Put Your Heart in a Book.

Married since 1987, Nancy and her husband have one son, a bossy dog, and a house full of books.

Suzanne Ferrell discovered romance novels in her aunt’s hidden stash one summer as a teenager. From that moment on she knew two things: she loved romance stories and someday she’d be writing her own. Her love for romances has only grown over the years. It took her a number of years and a secondary career as a nurse to finally start writing her own stories.

Currently there are two main series she’s actively writing in: The Westen Series, a contemporary small town series based in a fictional Ohio town where “things aren’t always what they seem”, and features Close To Home, Close To The Edge and Close To The Fire. The second series is the Romantic Suspense books KIDNAPPED, HUNTED, SEIZED and VANISHED, featuring the Edgars family as they fight for justice, even if it means stepping slightly outside the rulebook.

KIDNAPPED and HUNTED were both Golden Heart finalist, and SEIZED, book #3 in the Edgars Family Novels, was a finalist in the novella category of the OKRWA’s National Reader’s Choice Awards contest.

Suzanne’s sexy stories, whether they be her on the edge of your seat romantic suspense or the small town romantic suspense stories they’ll keep you thinking about her characters long after their Happy Ever After is achieved.

Passion, rumors, betrayal and spice in the Tudor Court

WolfBride

Wolf Bride (Lust in the Tudor Court) is a historical erotic romance by Elizabeth Moss that’s shows a steamy and spicier side side of the Tudor Court and King Henry VIII.

It’s January 1536 and Eloise Tyrell, a lady in waiting to Queen Anne Boleyn, is frustrated when her family informs her of their plans regarding her future. Upon discovery of an arranged marriage to a man she doesn’t really know, Eloise is conflicted. The notion that she needs to cast aside her own desires is unthinkable. Will she give up everything because she is told to do so? Will her life be submissive and focused on heirs and spares?

When Lord Wolf discovers Eloise has a few secrets, will it prevent her from finding love and all that she desires? Devising a few plans of his own, Lord Wolf is determined to make sure innocent Eloise is enlightened. Survival from this wolf will depend on risk, trust and lust of the heart.

A H-O-T must read this summer that takes you on a journey into a world of love, lust, Lords and libation. If you like Tudor romances with a bit of spice then you will LOVE Wolf Bride. This new series has just enough sizzle to make you tingle. For mature readers +182 Jalepenos

Coffee With Elizabeth Moss

Rebel Bride US Sourcebooks cover elizabeth moss

If we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Latte 🙂
What would you order?

I would also order a Latte, but a large, skinny, one-shot Latte. Too much caffeine fries my brain.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer a few questions. When you write, it’s either historical romance, historical or contemporary romance. Your latest series – Lust in the Tudor Courts, is very “spicy” as I like to call it here on the blog! It was captivating and unique to read a Tudor Series that was steamy and engaging.

For those readers who don’t know anything about this series – it takes place in the Court of King Henry VIII and Queen Ann Boleyn. What was it about King Henry VIII that inspired you to write a Tudor series about him and give it a steamy/”Spicy” twist?

Henry was clearly a very lascivious king – not only did he have all those wives, but he had numerous mistresses too! So it was not hard to imagine the Tudor court under Henry as being a place of sexual intrigue among the courtiers too. Like master, like servant.

What type of research did you do to prepare yourself?

I had already written six books – as Victoria Lamb – set in Tudor England, though slightly later, so all I had to do was read up on the Henrician court and Anne Boleyn in particular, whose trial forms the political backdrop to this novel.

Will there be more than three books in this series?

Not at the moment. I do have three further Bride books all planned out for the Elizabethan court, but no publisher for them so far. Any offers, dear publishers, you know where to find me!

For those who are not familiar with your work, you write under a few different names. You must be super organized to keep that all straight!. Is it easy to switch around when writing? How do you keep every character and story line straight?

It is easy for me to switch around most of the time. I sit down and my writing ‘voice’ changes automatically to fit my readership. That part comes quite naturally to me; I’m a bit of a social chameleon too and my writing is an extension of that facility. Being organized is not so easy, alas, but somehow I manage. I don’t keep fact sheets – that’s way too organized for me – so I just have to keep all the characters and story lines straight in my head while writing. Again, I mostly manage that. Though sometimes I have to stop and check back to see what colour someone’s eyes are! That’s always an issue when you write books quickly though, especially back to back or even overlapping.

Many readers are drawn to a book strictly based on the cover and I admit, I love a great cover. For the Tudor Series did you have input in the design?

No, but then I like to leave such jobs to the designers. I self-publish sexy Regencies too as Elizabeth Moss – and other stories under other names! – and hate people interfering in my cover choices. So I do as I would be done by. 🙂

Earlier this year in May here in the states, Wolf Bride was released. I’ll be posting my review tomorrow. When can we expect to read Rose Bride and Rebel Bride?

Rebel Bride is Book Two, and is due out in December for the Christmas market. I expect it will be up for pre-order in early autumn. Book Three, Rose Bride, which is my personal favorite, is out in May 2016.

Sounds great! Just in time for the holidays 🙂

I hope you are enjoying your summer and am thrilled we were able to hang out – I had a blast! Thank you so much for your time.

THANK YOU, Rae! Lovely coffee, by the way! 😉

8 Tantalizing Tidbits 🙂

1. What is your must read book and why? Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke – I’ve had the book for years, but was put off by its huge size. But recently I saw the BBC adaptation and was blown away by it. So that’s the one I have to grapple with in 2015.

2. What is one place I should see if I visit your hometown? Oddly, I only moved to Devon from Cornwall in England a month ago so I’m still finding my feet here. But nearby is Dartmoor, a wild and desolate high place, and well worth a visit to blow the cobwebs away and remind us what life may have been like for early humans.

3. Castles or Beaches? Beaches, definitely. Castles scare me, even though I write about them so much in my Tudor novels!

4. What is one thing readers would be surprised to know about you? I used to be a semi-professional snooker player in my twenties, and was seeded 24th in the world for women’s snooker. So I know all the British pool players who emigrated to America a decade or so ago, like Allison Fisher, Kim Shaw, Karen Corr, Kelly Fisher etc. But that’s a whole other story!

5. If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for research, where would you go? Australia, probably. I’ve never been and the outback sounds amazing. I love wild, lonely places.

6. What is your guilty pleasure? Writing poetry. It feels so self-indulgent.

7. What are you afraid of? Spiders. Even tiny ones. I scream when I see one, and run away like a mad woman.

8. If you could pick a book you’ve read and make it into a movie, which book would it be (besides yours 🙂 ? I I’d love to see Georgette Heyer’s THE GRAND SOPHY as a novel. It has everything, it’s a marvellously layered and witty romance.
