Brothers In Arms - A.J. Downey - Release Blitz





Title: Brother in Arms


Series: The Sacred Brotherhood Book III


Author:  A.J. Downey


Genre: MC Romance


Cover designed by: Dar Albert from Wicked Smart Designs







Rush had always been the brother that was the most up for adventure. Then
Grinder died and he realized that it was time to slow down. Fast-forward by a
year and more and his older brother Archer had found Mel. Hell, his own twin
was with a woman of his own! Rush is starting to get restless again, which was just perfect. Cue a string of anonymous hook-ups and one night stands. It was enough to feed the restlessness for a while, then an adventure of sorts came a callin’ by way of the VP’s estranged aunt and the President’s sister-in-law.

Her daughter was in need of some kind of white knight, which Rush could care less about, but the white knight routine did come with a pretty big perk.
It would mean that he got to go back to a job that had, once upon a time, felt
like a calling.

Of course, nothing was ever easy where Rush was concerned, especially when he actually set eyes on the damsel in distress. One, she wasn’t some paper princess, and two, she definitely didn’t want him around. After all, one-night hook-ups were supposed to be just that… one and done.

Brother to Brother: The Sacred Brotherhood Book I



Melody Beswick thought she was bringing herself and her thirteen month old son home to his father. It was her last ditch effort to make a better life for her and her boy. One in which Noah had a father to look up to and guide him. While she knew Grinder wasn’t perfect, she believed in him, and love always found a way, right?



Melody never thought her dreams for herself and her son could twist into such
nightmares, and that it was so true, the old adage, that the road to hell is
paved with good intentions. She’s about to find out that another adage is true,
that sometimes it’s better the devil you know, when instead of finding Grinder,
it’s his cold and critical brother Archer at the end of her long drive that she
must contend with.



With no other options, and no place else to go, Melody is about to make a deal with this devil that she can’t refuse. Who knew it could, quite possibly, be
the best decision she’s ever made?

Her Brother's Keeper: The Sacred Brotherhood Book II


Fate introduces people at both
the right and the wrong times…


So it is for Maren on the absolute worst day imaginable. When all hope was gone, and she was whittled away to little more than tears and despair, up walks Nox, an unlikely hero to save the day. Maren is about to discover that sometimes the good guys wear black, and there are times that the lines between good and evil blur beyond recognition.


Nox is a bad man with a heart of gold, or so it seems. It also seems that Maren has captured that heart with her wide, tear filled brown eyes. Nox never saw himself going for jailbait before, but that’s just what Maren is, all woman trapped in a seventeen year old package.
Still, what he wouldn’t do for her, including taking on the unlikely role of
keeper to her unruly preteen brother.


This mess could end beautifully or in some serious time spent behind bars for Nox, but sometimes, it’s worth risking it all.

When an international ring of sex traffickers kidnaps an eight-year-old girl in Boston, FBI Agent Lucas Randall heads undercover. But his rescue operation goes disastrously wrong and Lucas barely escapes with his life. Now the ruthless traffickers are hunting him down, along with everyone else who threatens their operation.

She has mad skills, and deadly secrets, and once she starts working with Lucas, she also has big trouble, because after years of pushing people away, she’s falling for the guy. The feeling is more than mutual, but as Ashley intensifies her online pursuit of the trafficking ring, her traumatic past collides with her present and suddenly Lucas can’t tell which side she’s on. And as the case escalates into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, it turns out Ashley isn’t the only one with something to hide.



If neither can trust the other with their secrets, how can they trust each other with their hearts?

4 Stars 

Cold Secret, is the seventh title of the Cold Justice series. This is a romantic suspense, full of action, thrills, intrigue and suspense. 

Told from multiple points of view, Cold Secret revolves around Lucas Randall and Ashley Chen, a pair of FBI agents, working together on a task force to bring down a pedophilia and sex trafficking ring. 

Ashley has secrets, that result in a very lonely and solitary existence. She's strong, stubborn, intelligent and very determined. At times as much as I admired her character, and found her to be realistic, she was not as like-able as previous characters in this series. 

Lucas is a handsome, intelligent and charming alpha. A compassionate, caring and good guy, who follows the rules he makes for an incredibly endearing character. 

Although their relationship is forbidden, and they seem like an unlikely pairing, this pair are inexplicably drawn together and their chemistry is off the characters. 

The plot is full of twists and turns that I didn't anticipate and kept me thoroughly and completely engaged with this entertaining and engaging fast paced story. 

Although the suspense outweighs the romance of this plot, I found it to be highly entertaining and thoroughly recommend this book to lovers of the suspense genre, and look forward to reading more of Ms Anderson's work in the future. 

She walked toward him and he forced himself not to move. She was only a few inches shorter than he was which was a change from the women he usually dated. Her hands rested on his chest as she eased up to kiss him. Her mouth was soft and sweet, and tasted like bourbon.

He wanted to unwrap that shirt from her body and drag her off to bed. But it didn’t matter how long it had been, this was a really bad idea.

As she was about to pull away, he cupped her face and took the kiss deeper, feeling the surprise, followed by the searing heat of her response. Her breathing hitched as her tongue met his. He fitted her more closely against him, his calloused fingers rough against the slippery satin of her blouse. Her arms wound around his neck and her hands sank into the hair at his nape. She was hot—body, face, mouth. His body begged him not to pull away, not to stop, but he did it anyway, and stared down into her pretty eyes.

“What was that for?” he asked gruffly.

“Curiosity.” Her lips were reddened from their kiss. Her honey skin held a flush of scarlet. “I wanted to see if you tasted as good as you looked.”

His throat grew tight. “What’s the verdict?”

She pulled away and walked over to where she’d dumped her laptop and coat. Picked them up.

He made himself stand very still as she walked away. Made himself accept that the kiss had been enough.

She opened the door and looked over her shoulder. “Better.”

Then she closed the door, severing the connection. And he knew a kiss was never going to be enough.





New York Times and USA Today international bestselling author, Toni Anderson, writes dark, gritty Romantic Suspense novels that have hit #1 in Barnes & Noble's Nook store, the Top 10 in Amazon and Kobo stores, and the Top 50 in iBooks. Her novels have won many awards. A former Marine Biologist from Britain, she inexplicably ended up in the geographical center of North America, about as far from the ocean as it is possible to get. She now lives in the Canadian prairies with her Irish husband and two children and spends most of her time complaining about the weather.

Toni has no explanation for her oft-times dark imagination, and only hopes the romance makes up for it. She's addicted to reading, dogs, tea, and chocolate.

I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire.
Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

Shopping For A Billionaire's Honeymoon - Julia Kent - Release Blitz

Need more of a Shannon and Declan fix? Or are you meeting this couple for the first time? Either way, you are going to love following Shannon and Declan on their hilarious and sexy honeymoon in this new book from Julia Kent, SHOPPING FOR A BILLIONAIRE'S HONEYMOON!




He is addicted to his phone and his new role as CEO. I’m addicted to getting some on my own honeymoon.
One of these things is not like the other.
I am pretty sure a serial killer’s lair is the only place in the world where I could stash my new husband so he can’t manage the acquisition of our new company.
And that seems a little drastic.
But only a little...
All I want is one week alone with him. Hours in bed, legs tangled together in ecstasy, room service and long walks on the beach in Hawaii.
Not vying for his kisses around a Bluetooth microphone. The Borg aren’t sexy in real life.
So I’m taking matters into my own hands and hitting “reboot” on our honeymoon.
We’re going to a place so remote that no one can find us.
Not even my mother.
Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon is now a full-length book of 150+ pages, with both Shannon and Declan’s points of view. Originally published with only Shannon’s viewpoint, this expanded edition is a result of reader feedback. People wanted to know what Declan was up to – so here you go. This book is meant to be read after Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife and/or Shopping for a CEO’s FiancĂ©e, but if you read it out of order (or even as a standalone), that’s fine. Shannon and Declan forgive you. ;)





Get your hands on SHOPPING FOR A BILLIONAIRE'S HONEYMOON:





My entire business empire rests in the hands of a man who just got dropped because my wife threw him in the toilet.

But other hands are resting on me. Moving on me. Stroking me over my clothes, pulling me out of the zone. The blue chemical water is a turnoff, but those hands...

Damn her.

Damn fine.

Business is my life. Giving in to baser urges is also my life. I’m a man.

My palm finds her knee, gliding up over those firm, sweet thighs, finding them bare and smooth, perfect for inhaling. Her skin is its own perfume, the swell of her hip crying out for a firm hand. I entwine the thin fabric of her garter – oh, sweet Jesus, it is so warm -- between my fingers, grasping at it as if I’m playing tug of war with myself.

Stay in the business zone and hold steady.

Pull hard on the lifeline Shannon’s garters represent, and join her erotic zone.

I have to make a decision. I’m torn.

So are Shannon’s garters now. Oops.

Decision made.

“Hey!” she squeals, her voice going to that timbre that says the words that are about to come out of her mouth mean the opposite of what she feels. “You can’t tear my clothes off like that!”

“I can, and I will.”

“Declan!”

“Didn’t you catch that line in the wedding vows at our ceremony yesterday? ‘I, Shannon Eveline Jacoby, do promise to let my faithful husband rip off my lacy lingerie at will.’”

“I don’t remember that line.”

“Let me help you remember.”

Before she can answer, I shut her up with a kiss.

Any Time, Any Place - Jennifer Probst - Blog Tour & Review




ANY TIME, ANY PLACE by Jennifer Probst

Billionaire Builders, #2


HGTV’s Property Brothers meets The Marriage Bargain in this second volume in the Billionaire Builders series, an all-new heart-wrenching and sexy contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When she was a teen, Raven Bella Stratton’s father was killed in a horrible car crash. The bigger shock was the discovery of a woman with him—Diana Pierce—and their two fully packed suitcases with airline tickets to Paris. Devastated by her father’s betrayal, Raven went to live with her aunt, never truly overcoming the traumatic event. When she discovers that the mysterious woman had a family with a husband and three boys, Raven vows to leave the memory of her father behind.

Until Dalton Pierce visits one night and suddenly her past challenges her future...

Leaving his life in California behind to run Pierce Construction with his two older brothers, Dalton Pierce has enjoyed returning home and studying his passion of woodworking. But when he visits the local bar with his brothers one evening, he’s immediately drawn to the smart-mouthed, badass, sexy bartender who sets his body on fire. Unfortunately, she doesn’t seem as intrigued by him, and his multiple advances are met with rejection. When he offers to restore the bar back to its original glory, he begins to work with her on a daily basis, and falls harder. His plan of seduction slowly weaves a web around them both, until they are caught up in the spell. But Dalton doesn’t know the secret that can either destroy them both...or finally mend two broken hearts.

4 Stars

Any Time, Any Place, is the second title in the Billionaire Builders series. I haven't read the previous title, and didn't feel at all lost with the story line so it can be read as a standalone. 

This series revolves around the three Pierce brothers, and Any Time, Any Place focuses on Dalton the youngest.    Raven and Dalton's story is told in a dual point of view, it's engaging and entertaining.  This is a story of loss, family and finding a happy ever after. Their story is a slow burn romance with elements of humor, steam and angst within a heartwarming story line. 

Raven Hawthorne is an independent, strong and sassy heroine, just the type that I love.  Raven is quite a closed off character due to her past, but the development of her character is really lovely and as the plot deepens her character opens up beautifully and we see how fragile she really is. 

Dalton is a sexy, sweet and intelligent man who is good with his hands. He's an incredibly like-able, endearing character, he's very much, what you see is what you get, hard working, honest and friendly. 

This pair of characters share a complicated past, one that not both of them are aware of, and they have both suffered a devastating loss, one that altered the path of both their lives. Both Raven and Dalton shared a very special bond with a parent that they lost.  Their chemistry is intense and the love scenes are quite hot and steamy. 

I thoroughly recommend Any Time, Any Place and look forward to the next title in this series.
