FLAMES OF LOVE by Melissa Foster (Remington's Series #3) @tastybooktours #giveaway #ebook

Book Two in the Remington's Series


As one of New York’s Finest, firefighter Cash Ryder is always prepared. When a woman’s car skids off the side of a mountain during a snowstorm, he’s there to rescue her. Cash is totally focused on the woman’s well-being, but within minutes of getting her to safety, he realizes that he’s nowhere near prepared for the heat that rolls off of sensual, smart-mouthed, and stubborn Siena Remington.

As a model, Siena Remington has dated some of the wealthiest, most handsome men in the industry, and she’s made peace with the idea that most men are just looking for eye candy and they wouldn’t know how to romance a woman to save their lives. When she’s rescued by a tall, handsome stranger, she thinks that maybe, just maybe, she’s found her own real-life romantic fairy tale—until he opens his mouth and everything that comes out is gruff, ornery, and aggravatingly sexy.

Thrown together during an annual firehouse calendar photo shoot, the passion between Cash and Siena sizzles, and neither one knows how to control the flames. After an evening of verbal sparring followed by a sinfully sensual night, their darkest secrets are revealed—and so is Cash’s warm, romantic heart. But Siena’s secret might be too much for big, strong, always-prepared Cash to handle—and Siena is forced to choose between a man who’s everything she’s ever dreamed of and an opportunity of a lifetime.

Winner's Choice

Lonerby guitarist, Luke Willoughby, knows he and his band are under management’s scrutiny since last week’s press conference puking incident by his little brother. The stunt got them suspended from the Sin Pointe tour and Luke fears they’ve blown it for good. The last thing he expects is the cute spy who management sends to observe him. When no-nonsense Sarrie Walker shows up at a gig and blows her own cover by announcing exactly what she’s there to do, Luke is impressed but knows instantly he’s in deep trouble with this one. Sarrie is a breath of innocent yet strong and sexy, calming air and seems completely disinterested in him until they end up stuck together in close quarters. She’s dangerously irresistible but so very off-limits.

Clearly Sarrie holds Luke’s second chance in her hands.

But what about his heart? By week’s end, it might be tangled in there too.

TRT: GERARD'S QUEST by Evie Knight (In Bed with the Enemy Series) #review #giveaway @tastybooktours

Enter Below to win a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card


Gérard Laurent has spent the past five years searching for a lost family heirloom. He’s tired of all the clues leading him nowhere and just when he fears he’s run out of leads his lover’s archenemy presents him with a lead he can’t turn down.

Brokenhearted by his actions, Julianne is determined to make his life miserable any way she can. Revenge is bittersweet but she succeeds until the tables are turned. Gérard steals a kiss reawakening her feelings for him, only he still won’t apologize.

Julianne is ready to forget Gérard when a notorious art thief offers her a painting she fancies in exchange for Gérard’s amulet. It’ll be the ultimate payback if she accepts it.

Will love conquer all?

Be Warned: anal sex, sex toys

GERARD'S QUEST by Evie Knight was a mix of sexy, sweet, and suspenseful with a side of spicy...a little something for everyone!

I am all about a heroine who doesn't let a man walk all over her, and Julianne certainly is a tough little gingersnap, funny enough I kept thinking of Julianne Hough from DWTS, and I think she is a great representation of this Julianne, a strong, determined woman, who wants to make her ex a little bit crazy with all her antics.

Gerard was certainly misunderstood, I mean, a little selfish...YES...but atleast he can admit to it.  He knows he was in the wrong, but with horrible communication between the couple, things just go from worse to better to worse again.  I certainly enjoyed the "Making-Up" the couple engaged in...HOT!!

Evie Knight has written a fun, exciting, sexy second book in the "In Bed with the Enemy" series, and I should have really read ARIEL'S SONG first, not that you have to, but I like to read a series in the correct order, so I recommend reading both.  They are quick reads, and will keep you hooked from page one!!

TVBT: THE WIDOW'S WALK by Robert Barclay #giveaway #guestpost @avonbooks @tastybooktours

Enter to win a Print Copy of
by Robert Barclay


His name was Garrett Richmond and he had always wanted to live by the ocean. So when the opportunity to buy-and renovate-the old home known as Seaside arrived, he leapt at the chance. Never mind that his friends and family thought he was crazy, he knew he could return this lonely mansion, worn by time, wind, and neglect, to its former beauty. But Seaside was more than just a project; it was spot that had called to him his entire life.

And then one night he saw her…

Her name is Constance Elizabeth Canfield and she tells him Seaside has been her home for over 150 years. But Constance is no ghost; rather, she claims that she has been somehow magically trapped between this life and the next. At first, Garrett can’t believe her crazy story-the woman had to be lying! And yet, there was something about Constance that was from another time...

Soon this mysterious woman, and flesh and blood man share a closeness they cannot deny. But just as their love begins to bloom, Constance’s presence starts mysteriously fading away, soon to be gone forever. Is their love doomed--or is it strong enough to transcend time, and even death itself?

What My Office Looks Like

I have often wondered what other authors’ offices look like, and sometimes I even took pains to try and view them on the Internet or on YouTube, to see if I could find out. I was able to do this in a few cases, most notably Ian Fleming's office at his retreat in Jamaica, where he wrote all of the James Bond novels. As such, I thought it might be interesting for the reader to hear a little bit about mine.

My office is fairly small, and located on the second story of our home in Florida. There's a double window with plantation shutters to the left of my desk, which looks out onto a palm tree-lined street. The window is just high enough for me to watch the palm tops sway back and forth gently whenever there is a nice breeze. Sometimes I enjoy looking out that window for inspiration when trying to find my next thought, or when organizing a new paragraph. Most people seem to think, (especially those who live up north), that when one lives in Florida, one is sort of obligated to furnish his or her home with light woods, pastel colors, bamboo and rattan, etc. But that really isn't the case. In many of the homes I've visited here, people are just as likely to decorate their houses with dark, heavy woods, such as I enjoy. 
My desk and all the associated furniture in my office are of that type. And my overall office, I must admit, is a very eclectic place. One might even call it my "man cave". On the wall behind my chair there are several famous autographs; two from the actor Errol Flynn who was my boyhood hero, and another from Bruce Lee, whom I met personally at a karate tournament when I was a teenager. There are also antiques here: a poster advertising a barnstorming pilot for a county fair in 1920, an old neon Pepsi-Cola clock that hangs on one wall and still burns brightly 24/7, and an old, refurbished Underwood typewriter from the 1930s which rests on the credenza just below my window. Every time my wife Joyce walks into my office she just sort of shakes her head, trying to understand the whys and the wherefores of it all. But if any of you ladies reading this are married to a man whose pride and joy is his man cave, then I don't really need to explain that they’re places where good taste goes die.

In any event, now when you read "The Widow's Walk", you will have at least some idea from whence it came, and I hope that you will approve. 
Best personal regards and happy reading, --Robert Barclay

When fireman Fred Breen rescues a bachelorette party after a construction crane collapses onto their limo, the media labels him the "Bachelor Hero."

Lauren Layne Prize Pack 
(Tote, Mug and Review Copies of Series)


New York’s hottest “sexpert” has been living a lie—and it’s up to one man to keep her honest . . . all night long.

Riley McKenna knows sex – good sex, bad sex, kinky sex…Her articles in Stiletto magazine are consistently the publication’s most scandalous—and the most read. But Riley has a secret…all that sexy talk? Not an ounce of it comes from personal experience. Her own bedroom escapades are more limited than even her best friends know. When her editor requests that all columnists write something more personal for Stiletto’s anniversary issue, Riley turns to the one man she’s always been able to count on and calls in the favor of a lifetime.

Sam Compton would do anything for Riley McKenna. Anything except be her experimental sex toy. He refuses her request. At least until she tells him that it’ll either be him or she’ll go to someone else. And that, Sam can’t accept. Reluctantly he agrees to her terms—one night of completely meaningless sex in the name of research. Riley thinks she’s prepared for what awaits her in Sam’s bed.  After ten years of writing about sex, actually doing it shouldn’t be that different, right? So wrong. What starts as “one time only” becomes “just one more time.” And then one more. And before they know it, Riley and Sam learn first-hand that when it comes to love, there’s no such thing as just one night.

If you haven't read any of the books in the Sex, Love and Stiletto's Series by Lauren Layne, you need to get on that RIGHT AWAY!  This Contemporary Romance Series is Flirty, Fun and Fabulous!  Lauren Layne writes with personality, and the characters literally jump off the pages...there is not ONE character that I don't LOVE!!

JUST ONE NIGHT, the third book in the series, features our "Sex-Expert" Riley, and the man she has been crushing on FOREVER....Her brother's best-friend, Sam.  Let's just say the sparks are FINALLY being ignited and you better stand back, or you might get burned by the heat these two create.  Years of sexual attraction is finally being put to good use, and you won't be sorry that you were there for the wild ride!

Emotional, Exciting and Enticing...JUST ONE NIGHT will have you devouring page after page, and wanting MORE..MORE...MORE!  I already harassed Lauren on Facebook to see if Emma and Alex will be getting their own book...and I KNOW you all will feel the same way after you read the series.  Clear your schedule, cause once you get started with the Stiletto Girls, you won't want to stop!!

Lauren Layne is a Contemporary Romance Writer to watch! I can't tell you how happy I am that I found her and she is now a MUST-READ Author for me!!  And the Sex, Love and Stiletto Series is a MUST-READ for all romance lovers!!
