Benn by Laurie Olerich Coming Next Week

Book title:  Benn (Demons After Dark Book Two)
Series title: Demons After Dark
Genre: Paranormal romance

Release date: April 27, 2017

Blurb:

Known only as Trinity demons, they were stripped of their powers and violently exiled from Hell. Wrongly accused of an unthinkable crime, they’re left to survive with no memories and no weapons while a secret society quietly plots Lucifer’s demise. All is not lost though. Between some heavenly interference and the love of a few good women, the Trinity just might make it home before all Hell breaks loose. The new series continues with Benn and Lainey.

A former shrink in SuperMax, Benn’s positive he’s lost his damn mind when he wakes up in the body of an uptight antiquities professor. One glance in the mirror and he knows he’s not in Hell anymore. After he’s brought into Expat Security, he’s handed a mission he can’t refuse if he wants to get home again. Live in Rome, raft into jungles, and risk life and brand new limbs? Sounds like his idea of Heaven! There’s only one problem. He can’t do the job without the help of a beautiful grad student who can’t stand the sight of him. He may not remember their past, but he’s ready to make their present a whole helluva lot more fun.

Grad student Lainey Hayes has done everything she can to escape her mother’s embarrassing world of psychics and palm readers. Throwing herself into her studies, she’s perfectly happy until she’s assigned to a special project with the egotistical, narrow-minded, and condescending Professor Daniels. The smug academic discounts anything and everything related to the paranormal--including her mother. The idea of spending months tramping through ruins with him sounds like her vision of Hell, but she’s shocked to discover this adrenaline junkie with a zest for life is nothing like the jackass she remembered.





Excerpt:
After rear-ending Lainey with an oomph, Benn reached over her shoulder, his chest brushing her shoulder. He pointed at a half-wilted purple blossom clinging to a scraggly vine. “Unexpected beauty in the middle of all of this darkness,” he murmured wonderingly. “A gift from the gods.”
The flower was lovely, but so alone in the gloom. It was already wilting and limp. How long before it shriveled on the vine and fell to ground? She felt a little sorry for the delicate thing. “It’s a shame no one can see her beauty. She’ll die in the dark unknown and unremembered.” She embraced the poetry of the moment with a whimsical smile.
“Not so.” His supple muscles flexed against her shoulder when he wrapped his arms around her to pluck the blossom. “Turn around,” he ordered softly.
There wasn’t much room for that, but she wiggled sideways until they were almost face to face and she stood circled by his arms. His expression was unreadable for a moment and then he swept the flower beneath her nose, saying, “Breathe her perfume, Lainey. Let her scent fill your mind and nourish your soul. Now, she’ll be remembered. Her short life will matter.”
Were they still talking about the flower? She wasn’t sure anymore. Their playful poetry suddenly seemed more intimate. Uncomfortably personal. She started to move away, but he stopped her with a warm palm against the small of her back.

Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones Blog Tour

SBPRBanner-PROVOCATIVE-BT

Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: April 18th Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM
Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

Book Description:

Sometimes, it all comes down to timing…
Volunteering at a cat shelter is much calmer than the adrenaline-fueled skirmishes of Vivi Parker’s last deployment in the Marines, but her limp is a constant reminder of what she endured. The shelter is her sanctuary, her one relief from memories that haunt her. At a fundraiser, she runs into a man she could never have while she served, but had never forgotten.
Active duty had its challenges, but starting over as a civilian in Boston is more difficult than Jack Conroy anticipated. When his mom and sister drag him to a cat benefit, he never expects to see a woman he last saw wearing Dress Blues.
Vivi fears she’s no longer the woman Jack was drawn to, able to tackle rock climbing walls or other outdoor challenges. And Jack has decisions he must face.
Military rules forbade their burgeoning passion. But now, years later, the rules have changed.
Yet, so have they.
Is it ever too late for a second chance at love?
HomeForGood.png

Excerpt

“How about that dance?”
Vivi sucked in a breath. The moment she'd both anticipated and feared was here.
“Sure.” She feigned indifference, terrified her pounding heartbeat would give her away.
He took her hand and led her out onto the main floor. It was as if sparks ignited where they touched. The way she heated up from that small gesture was nothing short of exhilarating. Forget dancing, it was a wonder she could put one foot in front of the other.
Will you get a grip? When you met him, you were in the Marines, a tough-ass warrior. Not some teenager with a crush.
She'd been so lost in her thoughts that she hadn't noticed what was playing, A Kiss to Build a Dream On, sung by Louis Armstrong.
Jack turned to her and dropped his hand to her lower back, pulling her toward him. Although she yearned to close the remaining space between them, she kept her expression neutral. She wrapped one arm around him and followed his lead.
Being supported by Jack took some of the pressure off her injured leg. She moved so lightly on her feet, rather than the usual encumbrance on her left leg, like she was dragging an anchor around.
She was dancing. Dancing!
Neither spoke, but energy sizzled between them. Or maybe she was imagining it. It was hard to tell. It was even harder to breathe. He was so achingly close she could barely function. Whatever his scent was, it teased her with a faint, delicious hint of male musk. Aftershave or something. If she leaned toward his neck, she could drink it in deeper…
“I remember seeing you in Dress Blues.” When he glanced at her, his eyes twinkled. “And now you're wearing a blue dress.”
She stumbled on hearing those words, but steadied herself, hopefully before he noticed.
“You okay?”
No such luck. “Yes,” she stammered. “I haven't worn these shoes in a while. Or danced.”
“We were supposed to dance that night. We never had the chance. So, this is long overdue.”
He remembered. She exhaled. He hadn’t forgotten after all this time, as she’d feared. After all, they’d never had a chance to be together. As soon as they'd inched closer, they'd been torn apart.

Early Reviews

Wow! Dress Blues is an awesome, fun, short must read in contemporary romantic fiction with a side of hot military characters and some sweet, fuzzy furballs! ... Lisa Carlisle always hooks me from the first page, to where I don't want to stop reading until I'm done, but then leaves me wanting more :o lol ... This has a fresh storyline, great descriptions and witty dialogue that will engage readers & keep pages turning! And who doesn't love second chances with a HEA, right?! I highly recommend this & can't wait to read more from this author!

A Wild Wicked Weekend with BFFs


Masquerade Night at Wild Wicked Weekend


Last week was Wild Wicked Weekend and TinkNCognito and I spent some rowdy times drinking, dancing, and receiving dances.  There were games, prizes and late night maracas (security may or may not have been called).  And we did this with our friends, readers and authors alike. 

We love Dick's on the Riverwalk, where Lori King got a table dance from the waiter while a mariachi band played.  We enjoyed several drinks with the rest of the Brat Pack in attendance.  Lori King just recently released Paw Prints on Her Heart, a stand-alone in the Crawley Creek Ranch.  Lori gave us some awesome swag, including a tattoo heart that I wore to accent my, ummm, heart.  In this book, Payton Storm served her country with honor until an IED ended her career and scarred her for life. Struggling to overcome PTSD, she agrees to a long-term stay at Crawley Creek Ranch under the care of a PTSD specialist. Single father, Luke Gillian, has been the Montford veterinarian for most of his adult life. In fact, he's barely left the town he grew up in.  A ray of sunshine appears in his life with her injured service dog. Could Payton be the change his life needs? 
You'll have to read to find out! 


Most days and nights, I was hanging out with some pretty awesome authors.  Laurie Olerich writes Primani stories about Angels who give Black Dagger Brotherhood a run for their money.  Elizabeth SaFleur writes The Elite Doms of Washington stories set in Washington, DC, with BDSM elements.  She excels at the cute-meet!  Victoria Saccenti's Destiny series is about two sisters coming of age against the turmoil of the late 60's/early 70's as they juggle traditional and modern values.  Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is winning her awards for her suspenseful mysteries and √©migr√© short stories. I'm telling you--it was never a dull moment. 


Be sure to check out their books!

Book 1 and 2 are currently FREE on Kindle!
