Veilers #1
Robin Bielman
Released July 22nd, 2014

Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.

Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancé’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.

Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.

Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction. Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.

“Cut the crap, Tess. Why were you following me?”
“How do you know I was following you?” Oops. She meant to say, “What makes you think I was following you?”
He gave a knowing smile—that looked ridiculously sexy rather than irritating. “I know you don’t want to insult my intelligence so let’s just say for argument’s sake, if you were following me, why would that be?”
At least she’d gotten him to change his tone.
“Truthfully?” She leaned a little closer to him. She couldn’t help it.
“That would be nice.”
“I’m really not a very nice person,” she announced.
“Neither am I.” He reached out and moved a strand of hair behind her ear.
Was he trying to confuse her? Because it was working. She’d nearly fallen into his hand before he pulled it away. He was indeed a very bad man.
“That’s good. I hate nice guys. So where does that leave us?”
“I haven’t got all night, Tess.” He lowered his chin, indicating—she presumed—he was growing tired of their banter.
She lifted an eyebrow. “No? That’s too bad. I’m a night owl. I can—”
“Answer my question before I haul you to your car over my shoulder.” His tone sent a little zing of pleasure right to the tips of her breasts.
“As if you could—” She was over his shoulder in one second flat. He moved swiftly, quietly and with superhuman strength. Uh oh. “Hey, put me down!”
He started down the alley, seemingly unbothered by her spastic attempts to get him to let her go. “You ready to walk and talk now?”
“Fine,” she conceded, although the view of his backside was pretty damn good.
When both feet securely hit the ground, she tugged down her dress and shifted the V-neck into place. He watched her squirm to put the rest of the material back where it belonged and his roving eyes heated her from the inside out.
“I followed you because I wanted to help.”
He started walking. “Do I look like I need help?” A little gleam—and major interest?—flickered in his sideways glance.
“Well, no. But I’m very capable and I didn’t feel like going home, so I decided there was no harm in making myself available to you should you need me.” She took a deep breath. It was time to put the question out there. “Did you know Dane is a—”
“Wolfen? Yeah I know.”
“How do you—”
He stopped and turned toward her with confusion and passion in his deep blue eyes. For several seconds he stared at her, like he was trying to get inside her head. Guess what she was thinking. “I’m the leader of the Night Runners,” he finally said.
She imagined he’d told her something he’d never told another human being before.
What the hell was she going to do now?

TVBT: BLUE MIDNIGHT by Tess Thompson (Lanigan Clan Collection) #Giveaway #Promo @Booktrope @Tastybooktours

Win a Digital Copy of TEA AND PRIMROSES

“If you change your mind, here’s this.” Finn Lanigan kissed a young Blythe Heywood one last time under an Idaho star-scattered sky. Then she left, returning to her fiancé and the wedding she’d committed to. It was the last kiss that ever weakened her knees, the last sky she noticed for over a dozen years.

Thirteen years later, newly divorced, she finds the forgotten slip of paper in the back of drawer.

Finn Lanigan - 208-555-2004

She’d tossed it years before, hadn’t she? Surely she had, in one of the moments that first year of marriage when her loyalty was resolute. Apparently not. Here it lived. Her temptation. Her road not taken.

Facing three weeks without her young daughters, she sets out to find the man she left behind so long ago. With only the name of the small town where he once lived, Peregrine, Idaho, and the memory of their last kiss under a starry sky, she heads across the Pacific Northwest in search of him.

What she finds in the foothills of Blue Mountain and the tiny town of Peregrine changes her life forever. But it is her destiny and destinies cannot be denied.

The first book of the Lanigan Clan Collection, laced with Thompson’s complex and diverse characters, “Blue Midnight” is a mature love story about second chances, family and the complexities of trust and vulnerability after betrayal.

Just finished...ahh...and I have to say...what a lovely novel from Tess Thompson.  I got a wonderful romance with just a hint of mystery to keep me turning pages.  Perfect for my followers who are fans of Contemporary Women's Fiction, since the book is light on the "bedroom activity", but so much fun watching Blythe and Kevan fall in love...was magical!

As someone who watched my divorced father find love a second time around, I truly felt for Blythe, and I wanted her to find that "Special" that had been missing in her marriage to Michael.  (ugh....Micheal...what a douche) *Please pardon my french, but it needed to be said!

BLUE MIDNIGHT was a beautifully written novel about truly finding yourself, picking yourself up, dusting off and finding that Happily Ever After.

Enter to Win
An early paperback copy of “THE COMPLETE BIRD OF PREY SAGA”, 
Sémya Slotin Mystery Book 1-4 
(US, CA, UK only,  release date September 15th.)

The truth this time, and nothing but the truth…

Polliannah Koch Guryev is in trouble and her boyfriend is dead. It's not the first time amateur sleuth Sémya Slotin finds herself on the first plane to rescue her best friend, but nothing's prepared her for what she finds in Toronto. Polliannah is a widow and her late husband John Allen was a hit man for the powerful Dovos family. What did they want from her? Why is this happening? One thing they do know: their carefree life back in London is officially over.

Sémya’s long-time boyfriend Josh Heinz knows more than he lets on, but as usual he’s not telling her anything. In fact, everyone knows more but nobody’s talking. But that never stops Sémya Slotin, Detective Extraordinaire, from finding out the truth beneath the lies…

But at what cost? Old conspiracies and secrets resurface that put them all in peril. Sémya’s worst fears about her relationship with Josh and his past are confirmed, and the rift between them may never heal.

Sémya and Polliannah’s world is falling apart. Will they be able to come out of this stronger?

Oh, and did I mention that Polliannah got married?

Note: This book is part of the series and is not a complete standalone. However, it can be enjoyed without reading Bird of Prey and The Plot Thickens first.

Every love story has a beginning.

Sémya Slotin had been coasting through life solving one mystery after another. While in Hawaii, her young protégée disappeared. When Sémya met Josh Heinz, her mind kept telling her to stay away from the handsome stranger with the hypnotic light brown eyes but she found herself inexplicably drawn to him. He awakened something in her and she was unable to resist him. It never happened to her before. Who was that man?

In Hawaii, Vincent had to work covertly with the sexy bold sleuth. Sémya’s beauty and intellect completely enthralled him, but his passion and growing love for her also changed him. There was nothing he wouldn’t do to finally win her trust and keep her safe, causing him to unleash events that would shape the rest of their lives. From the moment their gazes locked, Sémya and Vincent sealed their fate.

This is the final chapter of the Bird of Prey Saga.

Note: This book is part of the series and is not a standalone. You might be able to enjoy without reading Bird of Prey and The Plot Thickens first BUT I really advise to read Polliannah Got Married! first.

TVBT: SINFUL REWARDS 1 by Cynthia Sax #MeetHawke #heroprofile @tastybooktours #review #giveaway

Enter to Win Digital Copy of 

Belinda “Bee” Carter is a good girl; at least, that’s what she tells herself. And a good girl deserves a nice guy—just like the gorgeous and moody billionaire Nicolas Rainer. He is everything she wants in a man.

Or so she thinks, until she takes a look through her telescope and sees a naked, tattooed man on the balcony across the courtyard. Hawke is mysterious, the bad boy she knows will bring only heartbreak. He has been watching her, and that makes him all the more enticing.

But when a mysterious and anonymous text message dares her to do something bad, she must decide if she is really the good girl she has always claimed to be, or if she’s willing to risk everything for her secret fantasy of being watched.

Is her mystery man the reclusive billionaire with a wild side or the darkly dangerous bad boy?

(Cynthia Said "This" is her Hawke)

Name:  Hawke Masters
Age:  32
Security Specialist, Tattooed Biker, Former Marine and All Around Bad Boy
Physical Description:  
Six foot forever, built like a barn door, scarred, tattooed, intense pale blue eyes, short brown hair, perma-stubble (and he doesn’t care), fists larger than Thor’s mighty hammer. He wears a hideous (according to Bee) black T-shirt, faded blue jeans and huge, always polished army boots.
Standing on his balcony naked, riding his customized chopper through Chicago, and watching a certain brown eyed brunette in three eleven south.
Liars, wearing a suit, and hostiles
Relationship Status:  
Single and looking (at a pretty little constantly cleaning brunette)
Typical Friday Night: 
Settle in with a deep dish pizza and watch Bee buzz around her condo, plotting the best way to meet her. Then a hostile blows up a building and the night goes completely FUBAR
Drink of Choice:  
Beer. When he’s feeling sophisticated, he drinks it out of a glass.
Favorite Food: 
Bee’s Macaroni and Cheese. He hasn’t tasted it yet but he’s heard the stories and it looks delicious.
Favorite Song: 
Born To Be Wild – Steppenwolf
Choice of Transportation: 
Customized chopper with one thousand CCs. It’s like having a beast between your legs
Boxers or Briefs: 
None, he can’t be contained
Best Memory to Date: 
When he first got his driver’s license, he borrowed the car and drove around the countryside all day with his best friend, Rock. They felt like the Kings of the World, free and happy.
Words to live by:  

“There are many reasons to go to war. I fight to protect the quiet moments everyone else takes for granted.”

Next Month....Meet Nicolas

The start of somethin' Good!  

That's what I have to say about SINFUL REWARDS Book One of the Twelve Part Serial.  As a HUGE fan of Cynthia Sax's Erotic Romances (The Seen Trilogy,  Breaking All the Rules, etc), I was so excited to get my hands on SINFUL REWARDS One and Two (yes...I will be reviewing Book Two Next Month).  The little sneak peaks are soooo not enough for me...I need MORE MORE MORE (just imagine me stomping my feet on the ground). we day YUM!  Not that I don't like a man in a suit or in this case Nicolas, but Hawke...a tattooed bad boy biker with a spicy side...whoa mama!  Bee doesn't know what she is missing if she doesn't test BOTH waters before taking the dive!

So at this point...I am so on Team Hawke...but I think Nicolas might be able to persuade me!!

Bring it on Sax...Bring it on!!
