The Purest Hook (A Second Circle Tattoos Novel Book 3) by Scarlett Cole is gritty, sexy and emotionally raw. One quick note before diving into this review, Scarlett is a DOUBLE nominee for the 2016 RITA’s in Best First Book and Romantic Suspense categories. This was the first book that I read by Scarlett and now I’m quick to add her backlist to my e-reader.
Sarah-Jane “Pixie” Travers has worked hard to move beyond her troubled, terrifying and dangerous past. With the help of a few strangers her life and future have promise. If only she could allow herself a few pleasures, specifically Dred Zander, maybe then she’d feel normal.
Dred Zander, a reality star and musician has the hots for Pixie but she won’t let him in. Try as he might he’s relentless and won’t give up. In fact he uses every opportunity he can to woo her with his charm, but each time she rejects him. The banter between them is fresh, flirty and fun and adds a nice balance of comfort while the suspense in the story builds. It gives hope and we love to read about the possibility of hope!
Both have troubled pasts that fill us with rage. Each afraid of losing to a past beyond their control they avoid the truth. Will these two lost souls find salvation?
Can Pixie finally uncover the truth around that fateful night? Will Dread walk away when he learns the details? When the press uncovers secrets and the media attempts to harm any chance of happiness for Pixie and Dred it will take a leap of faith and trust to work through it.
While these two look to find their own happy-ever-after this two peppers spicy latte hot delight has just enough sizzle to make you tingle. Oh, and yes, it’s for mature readers 18+.

Scarlett Cole is a writer of contemporary romance and a two-time RITA finalist. Her debut, THE STRONGEST STEEL, has already become an Amazon best seller in romantic suspense, was a Best Debut Goodreads Author Finalist 2015, and Authors On The Air Global Radio Network Contemporary Romance Pick of 2015.
When Scarlett isn’t writing, she spends her time reading, hoarding mason jars, and working out to off-set an epic sour candy habit. She likes hot men, cold beer, and expensive shoes.
Having travelled the world for work and fun, Scarlett is a citizen of both Britain and Canada. A true city-dweller, she considers Toronto and Manchester home and likes to set her books in vibrant locations such as Miami and Los Angeles.
Three Week Arrangement (Chase Brothers Book 3) by Sarah Balance is a romance story about overcoming loss and learning to love again. Sometimes a leap of faith or a little divine intervention is what you need to get back out into the world.
Rue Campbell has her life mapped out and her career sorted, too bad her family can’t accept her plans. When a childhood friend insists she accompany him to a work gala, she does what most women would do, stretch the truth. By declaring that she’s already acquired a date the story begins an adventure of the heart. Especially since her date hasn’t been with a woman in years.
Ethan Chase can’t let go of his deceased wife despite the fact that it’s been three years since she passed away. Kudos Sarah on making what could be an awkward first encounter hilarious and charming.
While Rue needs a date, Ethan could benefit from a little distraction. A woman to show his family that he can move on and get back into the world. What will Ethan do when he discovers that Rue is the first woman to move him and ignite dormant feelings? Will he allow himself to fall in love again or push her away before things heat up?
Both have a few obstacles to overcome and expectations to work through. Rue is focused on her internship and has not thought through her plan. When she discovers that Ethan is possibly the one will it be too late?
Once again, Sarah Balance delivers characters that are real, charming and part of a family you dream to be a part of. I’m so in love with the Chase brothers and the rest of the characters their paths cross.
While Sarah’s book can be read as a standalone, this sexy and emotional book is the third installment in a must read series. These characters are witty, creative and willing to go outside the box for love. The perfect recipe for this contemporary romance.
This two and a half peppers spicy latte hot 2 Jalepenos delight has just enough sizzle to make you tingle. Oh, and yes, it’s for mature readers 18+.

Winning Lord West is the third installment in the Dashing Widows Book series from Anna Campbell and once again this series just get better and better. From the first sentence you know that you have unwrapped a treasure filled with empowerment, friendship and love!
Once again we are thrown into the world of strong women who have not let their situation get the best of them. A beautiful sexy story of two souls that have waited years to connect.
These Dashing Widows have embraced their new found freedom and decided that life should be lived and matters of the heart be explored.
Helena Wade is finally at peace with being a widow and welcomes her fate, she no longer needs to marry for financial reasons. Ready to enjoy life, and all the experiences, including the possibility of taking a lover.
Vernon Grange, the distinguished Lord West has waited years to be with Helena. Now that the stars have finally aligned to bring them together, what will happen? Will Helena finally permit Lord West to woo her?
I can’t say enough how satisfied I am after finishing one of Anna’s books or novellas. Anna writes stories of strong women who despite their unfortunate predicament are determined to enjoy life with or without a husband.
The journey the Dashing Widows have taken leads to a very brilliant conclusion, one I didn’t want to end. Every character is thought out, not only are they compelling, charming and witty but they tug at your heart long after the last page has been turned.
I was given this ARC by the author for a fair and honest review. If we are lucky dear readers perhaps there will be m look forward to the widow’s we’ve yet to discover and their journey too! Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long, I hear the next book will be out later this spring.
Decide for yourself with this excerpt:
Richmond Park, London, May 1820
Lord West made an effort to lighten the tone. “I arranged this picnic purely for the pleasure of seeing you flying across the grass on the back of a galloping horse.”
Oh, dear, that wasn’t what Helena wanted to hear. She’d imagined he’d put this party together to further his pursuit of Caro. Helena didn’t want West noticing her. For years, he’d been content to treat her as a distant acquaintance. “Really?”
“Yes, really. It’s been a fancy of mine since I saw you restricted to a trot in Hyde Park. The experience was most uncongenial for an observer. You looked like someone was strangling you. Slowly.”
She frowned, resenting that West made her the focus of his attention. And that his conclusions were so accurate. “Town isn’t the place to ride neck or nothing. I’ll soon be back at Cranham.”
West signaled to a groom. “Such a pity.”
“That I’m leaving London?”
“No, that you don’t want a good gallop, when I went to such trouble to bring you a suitable mount—and a suitable saddle.”
The groom led a pretty chestnut mare toward them. Helena immediately noted the gleaming sidesaddle. Her hand curled at her side as if it already held a crop. Despite her misgivings about the man offering the favor, she itched to throw herself onto the lovely horse. The groom passed the reins to West, bowed and left.
West’s smile was mocking. “If you deny me, I’ll think that you don’t like me.”
She ran a gentle hand down the Arab’s jaw and bit back a sigh of longing. The mare truly was a darling. “I don’t.”
That wasn’t completely true. Her feelings for West had always been more complex than mere antipathy. When they were children, he’d been her hero. Shreds of that fondness lingered, although she’d long ago recognized that he was cut from the same cloth as her depraved husband.
She studied West, as with unconvincing nonchalance, Silas wandered off in Caro’s direction. “You don’t believe me?”
West shrugged. “Explaining exactly what I believe requires more time and privacy than we now enjoy. Even if you insist on seeing me as the enemy, I hope you’ll still accept Artemis as a gift.”
“Gift?” Helena stared at him, appalled. “What on earth do you mean? I can’t take such an extravagant present. Have some sense, West.”
He stood unmoved by her refusal, tall and lean in his immaculate dark green coat and fawn breeches. “Nonetheless, she’s yours.”
“That’s…” Helena struggled to understand what lay behind this ridiculous and inappropriate gesture. West had been out in society all his adult life. He knew how the world would interpret his generosity.
His gaze remained unwavering on her face. “Yes.”
“Yes, what?” she snapped, although she had a sinking feeling she knew.
“Yes, it’s a declaration of intentions.”
Horror flooded her. She faltered back across the grass as if he’d made an unwelcome physical advance. “This isn’t funny.”
“I’m deadly serious.”
“Then you’re wasting your time.” She straightened and glared at him. Her mind worked a thousand miles an hour to make sense of this abrupt alteration in their dealings. “I was a rake’s wife. Be damned if I’ll be a rake’s mistress.”

First, if we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Latte with Coconut Milk 🙂
What would you order?
Thank you so much for inviting me for coffee. If we were meeting at a coffee shop, I’d be drinking green tea with lots of sugar. I love the smell of coffee but have never developed a taste for it.
Thanks so much for hanging out with me today.
Thank you for the opportunity to get away from my work zone for a while. I’m looking forward to it.
Congratulations on your RITA nomination for Falling into Bed with a Duke. Super exciting and what an honor.
Thank you. It really is an honor, especially considering some of my fave authors and reads also finaled in my category, so there will be happiness no matter who wins.
For those who are not familiar with your Hellions of Havisham series can you tell us a little bit about it? Are you planning any more books in this series?
Several years ago, I was researching another book (A Matter of Temptation) when I read about Charles Dickens being involved in a railway accident and also losing a brother to a railway accident. When railways first got started, there were so many accidents. The stories stuck with me, and when I needed something to tie my new heroes together, I decided they would be connected by disaster. When the Duke of Ashebury and the Earl of Greyling, along with their wives, perish in a railway accident, their sons are sent to Havisham Hall where they become the wards of the Marquess of Marsden, who also has a son—Viscount Locksley. Since I wanted them to have an unusual upbringing, I decided the Marquess would be quite mad, in the way that Miss Havisham in Great Expectations was mad (Hence, Havisham Hall, my nod to Dickens). He lost his way when his wife died. So my lords are a little wary of love, having been raised by a man who lost the love of his life. The third book, The Viscount and the Vixen, will be released in December. Then in early 2017, I’ll close out the series with an e-novella that will tell the tale of Marsden and his great love. It’s tentatively entitled Making Merry With the Marquess.
Every time I read your stories I’m swept away with strong and daring heroines and the heroes. They are bold, sensual and usually have an element of mischief. Sometimes the heroes are just plain wicked ;). Do you have a favorite?
My favorite is usually the one I’m writing at the time, and that’s because the characters that I’m writing are what I need at the time. I will admit that it was difficult to let Ainsley, Rafe, or Rose go. But all my characters give me a challenge—in one way or another.
Was there one that gave you a challenge while their story developed?
My current hero, Edward, in The Earl Takes All, is pretending to be his twin brother, which on the surface can seem like a betrayal to his brother’s wife and yet he’s doing it out of love. The challenge was to make him sympathetic and to ensure readers could forgive him. I think writing any character carries that challenge—the reader has to like the characters and has to understand their motivations.
For those who have not read your books I find that fact that you’ve published in a few different genres exiting. Do you have a favorite? Does that present any challenges for you as a writer?
Historical is my first love. When I discovered the romance genre, I devoured historical novels. I have expanded my reading options to include all romance sub-genres as well as young adult. I haven’t had any challenges switching between historical and YA because I write historical in third person and YA in first, so there is a little switch in my head that turns on and off as I move between genres. For the most part, the YA is contemporary or paranormal; they’re just fun to write. I think because I read so broadly now that I’m more open to writing different things.
I love your Scoundrels and Scandalous Gentleman of St. James series, can we expect anymore? Your latest release is the second book in the Hellions of Havisham. What can we expect?
I do hope to write some more of the St. James characters as I have a whole generation waiting in the wings. I know some of their stories, and I’m looking forward to exploring them. Some of the characters will make cameo appearances in the second book in the Hellions of Havisham, The Earl Takes All. When I first began writing British-set stories, I was creating new secondary characters for each book/series and it finally occurred to me that I could just use existing characters so I wouldn’t have to keep coming up with so many names. It’s always fun to run across someone we’ve seen before.
When you research for these amazing reads are you able to travel to any exotic locations for research?
I did go to Scotland a couple of years ago with a group of writers. That was an amazing trip. I’m hoping to make it to London soon (I haven’t been since I was a kid). But for the most part, my research is done between the covers of nonfiction books.
Thanks again for hanging out! Time for another Latte 🙂
Thank you! I’m off to make another pot of tea.
Happy Reading Dear Readers.
Happy Writing Lorraine!
***** 8 Tantalizing Tidbits *****
1. What is a must read book and why?
Wild at Heart by Patricia Gaffney, if you can find it. It’s the beautiful story of a man raised by wolves and the daughter of the professor who is studying him to determine if he possesses any humanity or if he’s as wild as the wilderness in which he was raised. I love this story. It’s on my keeper shelf.
2. What is one place that I should see if I visit your hometown?
The fairgrounds. The county fair (I lived in the county seat) was the most exciting time of year. I grew up in a very small (pop. 10,000) town. The restaurant where I was a waitress when in high school is no longer there and the high school isn’t the one I attended. The drug store where I used to go for lunch (they had the best pimento cheese sandwiches) is no longer there. But the fairgrounds, the county fair in the fall, and its corresponding rodeo are still an important feature of the town.
3. Castles or Beaches?
Beaches but castles are a close second.
4. If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for research, where would you go?
5. Binge watcher or weekly viewer? Which show(s)?
Binge watcher (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad)
6. What’s your favorite TV show and why?
Game of Thrones. So well done, such an interwoven story.
7. If you could pick a book you’ve read and make it into a movie, which book would it be (besides yours 🙂 )?
Paint the Wind by Cathy Cash Spellman. It’s an epic tale and would probably do better as a mini-series.
8. What’s your favorite movie of all time and why?
Casablanca. Because Rick, who starts out so hard and cynical, in the end is so noble.

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals and computer code, but something was always missing. When she read a romance novel, she became not only hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She’s been writing about them ever since, for both adult and young adult readers (as Rachel Hawthorne and Jade Parker and with her son as J. A. London). Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards including RWA’s RITA®. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

The Duke and The Lady in Red by Lorraine Heath is absolutely sinful, seductive and captivating. As the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James Place series comes to an end, this Rogue is absolutely wicked and surprising. Although this book ends the series, it reads brilliantly on its own – you don’t need to have read the series to delight in it.
Rosalind Sharpe needs a man and sets her sights upon The Duke of Avendale but has no idea what he’s capable of. A man who always has his pick when it comes to women and until now has never cared what they really wanted.
What is it about Rose that drives Avendale to her? Pleasure? Desire? Control? This is not a man who likes to be denied. What will he do when he discovers she’s not completely honest with him? The sexual tension is absolutely H-O-T, and when paired with a game of chance, it sizzles!
This book is part of an amazing series and I’m sad to see it end. Rose and Avendale are the perfect way to end this and it’s nice to see familiar faces once again as the story progresses. There is nothing better than a plot rich in suspense and secrets. When Rose must decide what to reveal to Avendale she fears everything will fall apart. Too much is on the line. What will happen if she tells him the truth? What exactly is she hiding?
Family is everything to both of them so when she must make a choice in order to protect her family the options Avendale presents will challenge her at her own game. How many risks would you take? Would you insist on conditions?
I received this ARC from the publisher via The Tasty Book Tours and am thrilled to be a part of this blog tour. Lorraine Heath’s book is a must read and at a pre-order price of $4.99 it’s a no brainer! Thank you Lorraine for The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James Place. I can’t wait to discover what’s next!
