Ten Authors I REALLY Want To Meet

I think there may be more than ten authors that I really want to meet. But I will try to make a list of the ten I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to meet.

1. Anne Bishop
Loved every book of hers that I have read so far. The world building is second to none.

2. Pepper Winters
The queen of dark romance for me. Need I say more

3. Anthony Horowitz
The only male author on this list so that really must mean something. I started reading the Alex Rider series, but truly fell in love with the power of five series. Top notch.

4. Kristen Painter
Loved the House of Comarre series. Epic urban fantasy series.

5. Christina Lauren
Beautiful Bastard was really something else and couldn’t put it down.

6. Jodi Ellen Malpas
Lord of the Manor!

7. Alice Clayton
Wallbanger! Don’t really need to say anything else after that. If you have read the book you’ll know what I’m talking about.

8. Kresley Cole
Immortals After Dark. Yes please! Still have to get around to reading the game marker series thou.

9. J Kenner
How can you not feel for Damien? He really is the alpha male.

10. K.M. Golland
I read temptation in one siting. That alone says everything I need to say.

Of course there are more and I can’t wait to finally meet some of the authors when I attend the Fictionally Yours event in Melbourne, Australia in October.

{Release Blitz} Caress of Pleasure

About CARESS OF PLEASURE

I’d thought that he was mine, the dark, arresting man who commanded not only my body but my heart. Dante had swept into my life, and I’d succumbed to the burn of passion in his arms.

I’d believed we had a love that would last forever, but he’d shattered my dreams and broken me into pieces when he’d walked away, taking a piece of my soul with him.

Now he has come back seeking my help, and though I try to keep my distance and protect my heart, I cannot deny that the fire between us burns hotter than ever. And I cannot help but fear that this time our passion will reduce us both to ashes.

Excerpt

“Do you remember what you said back in Malibu the other day? We were eating breakfast.”

I grin, certain I finally see where this is going. “I said it felt very domestic. That I liked that.” I ease closer, then grind my pelvis against his. “What’s the matter? Already feeling shackled by matrimony?”

“Shackled wouldn’t be a problem,” he says, “though I’d prefer it was you and not me. And no. But I don’t ever want us to become . . . settled.” As he speaks, he steps back so that he can run his finger down my dress. He eases the skirt up, then growls low in his throat when he finds that I’m not wearing underwear.

“I don’t want to be settled, either,” I say huskily.

“Dear god, I love you.” He tightens his hand around my waist and I arch back, letting him explore me, letting his touch excite me. I know that we are outside, but it is dark and this is Damien, and I don’t care. I want this. I want him. And I want the passion to fire so hot between us that it burns away everything else.

“Inside.” His voice is rough. “If I don’t get you inside right now, I swear I’m going to fuck you right here against this wall.”

{Release Blitz} Aphrodite’s Delight

aphrodite-cover

ABOUT APHRODITE’S DELIGHT

Nikko has never been the kind of superhero that plays by the rules. But when he finds himself on probation—and in danger of losing his superhero status—he knows he needs to prove to the Council that he can do what superheroes are expected to do: save the world. Not an easy task under normal circumstances, but in New York City, where every eagle-eyed kid mistakes him for the comic book hero Silver Streak, it’s turning out to be nearly impossible.

Shy and introverted, comic book fan Lydia Carmichael doesn’t have the gumption to break out of her cubicle and away from her patronizing boss and her soul-crushing job. At least not until a pair of magical new shoes bring new levels of confidence (not to mention speed and dexterity) – and put her face to face with the comic book superhero she’s been crushing on for years – the Silver Streak.

There’s no denying that the chemistry between them is as incendiary as a comic strip’s Blam! But Nikko has no idea who – or what – Lydia really is, and Lydia knows that if she tells him the truth, she’ll not only lose him, but lose the chance to help save the world.

But if a pair of magical shoes can help a girl like Lydia find the superhero inside herself, then maybe Lydia can find the courage to fight for—and win—the man she loves.

{Review} Complete Me (Stark Trilogy #3)

Complete Me by J Kenner
Stark Trilogy #3

5 stars

addtogoodreads

Synopsis:

Desire runs deep. But our secrets cut close. Beautiful, strong, and commanding, Damien Stark fills a void in me that no other man can touch. His fierce cravings push me beyond the brink of bliss – and unleash a wild passion that utterly consumes us both. Yet beneath his need for dominance, he carries the wounds of a painful past. Haunted by a legacy of dark secrets and broken trust, he seeks release in our shared ecstasy, the heat between us burning stronger each day. Our attraction is undeniable, our obsession inevitable. Yet not even Damien can run from his ghosts, or shield us from the dangers yet to come.

Series Reading Order:

#1 Release Me ~ my review
#2 Claim Me ~ my review
#3 Complete Me

Review:

There is no doubt that this is an exceptional conclusion to the Stark series. Complete me starts right were claim me left off, and never let down. It was so sad when I read the last page and I had to put the book down.
Complete Me is much heavy and darker than the first two books, but still very enjoyable. Damien and Nikki are just perfect, and can show us that love does over come everything. The press, friends, enemies, jealous lovers are nothing if you truly love someone.
I will be sure to visit their story again in the future.

addtogoodreads

Synopsis:

For Damien, our obsession is a game. For me, it is fiercely, blindingly, real.
Damien Stark’s need is palpable – his need for pleasure, his need for control, his need for me. Beautiful and brilliant yet tortured at his core, he is in every way my match.
I have agreed to be his alone, and now I want him to be fully mine. I want us to possess each other beyond the sweetest edge of our ecstasy, into the deepest desires of our souls. To let the fire that burns between us consume us both.
But there are dark places within Damien that not even our wildest passion can touch. I yearn to know his secrets, yearn for him to surrender to me as I have surrendered to him. But our troubled pasts will either bind us close…or shatter us completely.

Series Reading Order:

#1 Release Me ~ my review
#2 Claim Me
#3 Complete Me

Review:

Still as addictive as the first one. Which is a good thing. It is so disappointing the the series starts to fall away after a really first good book.
Claim Me continues the story of Damien and Nikki and their struggles in the world. The story starts right from the end of Release Me, making it feel us as if you have never left. As their relationship increases in intensity, the world around seems to start crumbling little by little.
If you haven’t read the first one, it is a must before reading the next one in the series.

5 Stars

addtogoodreads

Synopsis:

For fans of “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Bared to You” comes an erotic, emotionally charged romance between a powerful man who’s never heard “no” and a fiery woman who says “yes” on her own terms.
“He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. ”
Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me.
Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past–and risk breaking us apart.
But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him–and us–forever.
“Release Me “is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Review:

OMG!!! Like how a moth is drawn to the light, I was drawn to this book and was immediately sucked into another world. I never wanted to leave it. The characters are so strong and well scripted. The story line just flows perfectly; it’s like actually watching it play out in front of you. I felt Damien and Nikki’s every emotion along their journey.

“Do you know what passion is?”
I blink, confused.
“Most people think it only means desire. Arousal. Wild abandon. But that’s not all. The word derives from the Latin. It means suffering. Submission. Pain and pleasure, Nikki. Passion.” The flash of heat that burns across his expression is unmistakable. “Do you trust me?”

The only problem is that it was over too soon; or I just read it way too quickly.

One if your a fan of the Crossfire Novels.
