High Heeled Wonder by Avery Flynn

 
 
"When a fashionista and her bodyguard get tangled up together, watch out for sizzling sex and surprising plot twists." - New York Times best selling author Rebecca York
 
Sylvie Bissette may be one of Harbor City's youngest glitterati, but only her best friends know her most closely guarded secret. She's the woman behind The High-Heeled Wonder, a must-read blog for fashionistas everywhere. Gossip, fashion advice, exposés. Too bad some people can't take a little criticism. When an internet troll discovers her secret identity and escalates from stalking her to threatening her life, Sylvie turns to security expert Tony Falcon for help. The investigator from the other side of the tracks is the olive oil to her Evian water and aggravates her to no end, but it's not just her temper he's inciting...
 
Tony Falcon wouldn't know a kitten heel from a tabby cat, but since most of the bad guys he tracks down aren't wearing stilettos, it's never been a problem...until he meets Sylvie. When a murder investigation leads him to the same place Sylvie works, he realizes the feisty fashionista may be his best chance at catching the criminals who killed his best friend. It all leads back to the cut-throat fashion world. But solving that case means going after the people Sylvie cares about, and soon his attraction for her--and the danger she's in--has him wondering if solving the case is worth hurting the woman he can't stop fantasizing about ...


When Sylvie's almost run over in broad daylight, Tony goes undercover as her boyfriend to infiltrate the close-knit fashion community. And when they discover Sylvie's stalker may be linked to Tony's own investigation, what started as a simple plan to find his friend's killers turns into a hot bed of secrets and revelations. In a world full of overblown egos and dog-eat-dog ambition, Tony and Sylvie must work together to find her revenge-obsessed stalker before Sylvie ends up with a literal knife in the back.

Claire Layton expects the usual busy Saturday night at Harvest Bistro to be killer on her stilletto shod feet. She never imagines there’d be an actual murderer on the loose at her restaurant in rural Dry Creek, Nebraska. But when she discovers a customer dead in a dumpster, the killer demands she find the victim’s phone and flash drive or face fatal consequenses.

Jake Warrick, a cocky and mind-numbingly hot private investigator, becomes Claire’s unlikely ally in the search. Jake just wants to solve the case and get out of this hick town, but the diminutive and curvaceous Claire turns his plan upside down as they uncover a more complex crime than they ever imagined. The two bicker and banter like Tracy and Hepburn caught in a whirlwind of intense sexual attraction as they try to find the killer before it’s too late.


 
"I do believe I can arrest you for looking at someone like that. You've got to be breaking some indecency laws."

Taking a deep breath, she recovered her bearings. Mostly. "You're out of your jurisdiction, sheriff."

Dry Creek County Sheriff Hank Layton is the stuff of dreams. Nasty, steamy, delicious fantasies that leave Beth Martinez weak-kneed and desperately wanting the man she can never have.

Hank can’t stop thinking about Beth to the point where he’s afraid of becoming permanently bowlegged. And even though the sexual tension between them is thick enough to trip over, she runs every time he chases.

But when a mysterious developer forces her neighbors off their land, Beth becomes the one person standing between the scoundrel and millions of dollars. Only Hank can help her uncover the truth. Together they risk their lives exposing decades-old secrets and learn that everything is not as it seems in their rural Nebraska town.


 
Uptight history professor Sam Layton may have the abs of a movie action hero, but he stopped believing in the joy of adventure a long time ago. However, when a one-night stand with a tattooed bombshell leads to a treasure map for the long-buried Rebecca’s Bounty, the call to action is too strong to ignore.

All Las Vegas cocktail waitress Josie Winarsky wants to do is paint. But when she lands smack dab in the middle in a mob plot, she has to push aside her dreams to find a treasure in Dry Creek, Nebraska and save her family from harm. With Sam at her side and a Vegas loan shark on her tail, the treasure she finds turn out to be much more valuable than emeralds and rubies.
 
About Avery Flynn
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey's Mallory books. It wasn't long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin's four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn't long before the local book stores' staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

MY TAKE ON IT:
Right from the beginning I got pulled into the story. My little girlie girl heart skipped a few beats as fashion, great shoes, and hot guys were woven together to tell a tale of love and mystery and danger. In this story you've got a woman who has risen to success on her own merit, a man who is hell bent on righting a wrong, a pair of fathers who are determined to keep their little girl safe, and a stack of jealous and bitter fashionistas who can't help but bring extra drama to the mix. Add in a little bridezilla and a psycho and you've got a great tale that is sure to entertain for hours!! And great shoes, don't forget the shoes!

SEVERINE by Jaden Sinclair

The year is 9045 and the Nations control almost everything in the universe. They have brought order to many planets and cultivated others, but behind closed doors they’ve raided and pillaged the planet’s resources for their own gain. She is one of the many children who have been ripped from their home for their selfish cause. Trained at a young age, she was developed into just what the Nations hoped to accomplish. A perfect weapon. But when control is lost and the weapon goes rogue, the Nations learn firsthand just what they’ve created and just what their weapon will do for her freedom and for a family she can never forget. He is sent to find her. Another trained and burned by the Nations, Byron Suthland is hired to find the weapon, only he doesn’t want to find her for them. He wants to find her for himself and bring back a woman, not a weapon. Knowing she can kill him instantly means nothing, but caring about her means everything.
Severing


 *********Excerpt**********

“And where are you going to go?” “Home.” “Do you even know where home is?” “No, but you do and you’re going to be kind enough to give me the information.” “It isn’t that easy.” She lost her temper and walked right up to him, bringing the gun she had tucked behind her right out. He didn’t fight her when she put her hand up to his throat, shoving him back against the wall, her gun now pressed right between his eyes. “What are you going to do, Severine?” Byron asked. “Shoot me?” “If I have to.” “Then what kind of information will you get?” They had a kind of standoff. Both refusing to back down or look away. However, Byron made a move, one she wasn’t expecting. His hand came up slowly, his body didn’t move. With the back of his hand, knuckles only, he touched the side of her face. Severine moved back. “What are you doing?” She frowned at him. “Something I think hasn’t been done to you in a very long time.” “Don’t do that.” His hand went back to her ear and into her hair. “But I want to do this.” When his face began to lower down to hers and both of his hands moved to her waist, Severine changed the position of the gun. She now pressed it up under his chin. “I can shoot you and keep you alive.” His face was mere inches from her own, lips so close she could feel his breath upon her own. “And I think this will be well worth getting shot.” They touched. His lips touched her own gently, softly. She had never been kissed before. The only type of touching she’d been subjected to had always resulted in pain of some kind. Yet this wasn’t painful, but it confused her none the less. He didn’t do much of anything else either. In fact, if she wasn’t mistaken, she thought he was trying to show her how to kiss. Why she let this happen, she couldn’t answer. But Severine did give in mostly due to her curiosity. She wanted to know what this felt like. What it was like to be held by another and not made to suffer for it. However, before anything more could go on, the gun she held under his chin was taken from her hand and the light kissing simply stopped. He pulled back enough to look her once more in the eye, one arm still around her. Keeping eye contact with her, Byron uncocked the gun, let it drop with his finger still on the trigger so it would flip butt first back to her. “I’m not going to hurt you, Severine. Ever. And I will help you find what you need, but not with a gun at my head. Next time, just say please.” She took the gun from his hand, he let her go, and moved around her toward the steps, taking them two at a time up, leaving her right where she stood.

Betting on You by Sydney Landon


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:
 
In this seductive new novella from New York Times bestselling author Sydney Landon, Mia
 
Gentry refuses to give up her independence—until Seth Jackson shows her just how hot
losing control can be…
 
Living the life of a rich socialite was never in Mia’s plans, much to the chagrin of her wealthy
parents. She’s made her own way, studying computer science at Brown and snagging a coveted
position with Danvers International after graduation. Her plan to avoid parental involvement
seems to be going well until her mother buys her a date at a charity auction—with the hot resort
owner who she’s been eyeing on her latest work project.
Seth never mixes business with pleasure, but something about Mia drives him to distraction.
Giving into his desires for just one night will hopefully clear his head enough to keep his hands
off her during office hours.
But when one mind-blowing night turns into weeks of flirtation, frustration, and companionship,
Mia realizes that their workplace fling may be developing into more—and that Seth might be the
perfect man she’s been waiting for…
Excerpt:
 
 
Sticking his hand out, he said, “It’s Seth and you must be Mia. I take it Margie showed you
around. Did you have any other questions?”
“Nope, I think Margie gave me the 411 on everything. I’m just going over your equipment now.
Do you want to keep your hard drive? I can dispose of it, but some people are funny about that.”
Seth couldn’t believe that the words equipment and hard drive had his cock stirring to attention.
What in the hell was wrong with him? Why was he suddenly incapable of thinking of anything
other than bending her over the control desk and fucking her senseless? He had to get out of this
room before she noticed the tent in the front of his trousers. “Um, yeah, you can just keep it. I’m
sure my hard drive will be safe with you.” Holy shit, did I actually just say that to her? So not
cool. Just get out now before this gets worse. “I’ve got to get back to my office. Just let Margie
know if you need anything.”
Mia looked at him in confusion and then to the space beyond him. “Isn’t that your office?”
“Oh, sure, yes. I meant to say, I was heading to lunch. You might be gone when I get back.”
God, he really hoped so.
She looked down at her watch, seeming surprised by the time. Almost as if by some cruel twist
of fate, her stomach growled at the same moment. “Where are you going for lunch?”
Before thinking better of it, he said, “I usually grab something from the restaurant downstairs.
They have an excellent lunch buffet.”
Mia moaned and Seth started sweating harder. “Oh, they so totally do. It’s been ages since I’ve
eaten there. Do you mind if I tag along? I hate to eat alone and I’m starving.”
“Er . . . sure. Just give me five minutes to finish a few things and I’ll be ready.” He could only
imagine what she thought he had to “finish up” when he headed straight for his private restroom
on the other side of his office. He just needed a few minutes to collect himself before what would
undoubtedly be a long lunch hour.

Sydney Landon lives in Greenville, South Carolina and has spent the last twenty-five years
working in accounting. Sydney met her own prince charming in 2000 and received the most
romantic proposal on a pier in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, thus creating her eternal love for
the city. The fact that her future husband was a fellow computer geek completely sealed the
deal for her. She credits him with keeping her calm and rational while also understanding her
need for a new pair of shoes every other week. They have two children who keep life interesting
and borderline insane, but never boring. The idea of the Danvers’ Series popped into her head
and refused to go away. She started writing the first story never imagining that it would ever
be finished. Three months later it turned into her first book, Weekends Required. Within a few
months, it had quickly made the best-seller list on Amazon, and went on to make the New York
Times Best Seller List. Barely taking a breath between books, Sydney followed up with the
second book in the series, Not Planning on You. Within the first month, this book also became a
best-seller. The third book in the series, Fall For Me was released in February 2013 and became
a New York Times Best Seller. The fourth book in the series, Fighting For You releases in
paperback in February 2014. Sydney is currently working on the fifth book in the Danvers’
Series. When she isn’t writing, Sydney enjoys reading, swimming and being a mini-van driving,
soccer mom.

wealthy CEO. Gray is a man who goes after what he wants. And, after their first meeting, he
wants Suzy.
Even though he looks like every fantasy she’s ever had, Suzy is wary of the powerful
businessman. She likes her newfound independence, even if her best friend thinks it’s an
excuse not to risk her heart again. Besides, she doesn’t think Gray could ever be interested in a
relationship with someone like her. When he calls her bluff, Suzy agrees to one night together.

her that two opposites can be a perfect fit—Suzy realizes that she might just have found the one

night together, she is surprised when it leads to a relationship.

MY TAKE ON IT

This is the first book by Kristen Ashley that I've ever read.  It very definitely won't be the last!  I loved Gwen and Hawk!  She's strong and smart and she spoke clearly to my inner shoe diva.  We are now sisters.  So be it.  He is OMG drool worthy.  Gwen can have him, as long as she doesn't mind the rest of us drooling and dreaming!  I won't give any secrets away, in case, like me, you've obviously been living under a rock and never read this amazing writer's books, but holy hell, the trouble that seems to hunt for Gwen!  Take my word for it on this one, come out from under the rock and start reading!!

Illusion by Ashley Beale



What if everything you thought you knew was just an illusion?

Everything in Zoey's life was destroyed the day her fiance never made it home from the war. Now being a year later, and still dealing with the horrible tragedy, she makes a move to New York City for her job, hoping to finally start healing.

The last thing Zoey ever expects to find is someone she can feel so comfortable and happy with. Everything about Harvey draws her attention, and she can finally feel herself heal. There are times things seem too perfect, but she tries not to question it much as she holds onto the passion she has for him.

When everything unravels and Zoey is forced to face a truth she can't seem to grasp, she has to make a choice to finally move on, or stay lost in a world of illusion.

Sometimes life is simple, sometimes love is unexpected. Sometimes we're exactly where we need to be, when we need to be there.
Then sometimes everything we thought we knew is just an illusion.


This [New Adult] Contemporary Romance novel contains mature themes, graphic sex and language, and is recommended for readers 18+ in age. Please be advised, this story also deals with PTSD, depression, infertility, attempted suicide, and other very mature situations, and is not recommended for all readers.
 
MY TAKE ON IT
Heart-wrenching from the very beginning.  There were moments of joy, moments of madness, and moments of tragedy.  The emotional roller coaster ride I went on while reading Illusion was incredible.  I laughed, I cried, I was incredibly sad, and fearful for this poor woman who was made a victim of her own mind.  As the story took her on a dark and dangerous path, I was taken along with her.  Even when Zoey starts to embrace life again and learns to be happy, I was still choked up.  An emotional read, for sure!

Breaching the Billionaire: Alethea's Redemption

Breaching the Billionaire: Alethea's Redemption (Book 6) (Legacy Collection)

Releasing on 1/13/2014

                                 
 
 
Alethea is at a crossroad. For as long as she could remember, it was her and her best friend, Lil, against the world. Now that Lil has met Prince "I have my own helicopter" Charming and reconnected with her family, Alethea is on the outside looking in, justifying who she's always been to people who have never understood her. When she uncovers a looming threat to Lil's family, she's determined to save them, even after they tell her not to get involved and assign their best man to stop her.

Marc Stone has been watching Alethea ever since she waltzed through his security system and right into his late night fantasies. As a decorated Marine, he's seen war, but nothing could prepare him for this wild redhead. Strong. Beautiful. Flawed, and fiercely protective. Hard to love, and impossible to deny.

If she'll stop fighting him long enough, he'll show her just how perfect they are for each other. That is, if she doesn't get them both killed first.

MY TAKE ON IT

Once again Ruth Cardello has hit a homerun!!!  I have yet to read a book by her that wasn't a great read.  In this book, she took a character that was abrasive and fairly unlovable and made the reader looker deeper to find her value.  Once we got to know Alethea a little better and understood a little more what made her like she is, the affection for her just kind of blossomed.  And hello?  Marc....serious yummy going on there.  Hot and alpha and definitely knows his woman.  The two of them set the book on fire!!

I'll Remember You


Book 11 in the Hell YEAH series by Sable Hunter


"I'll Remember You - Hell Yeah! Book Eleven is not meant to be a stand-alone book. It ties loose ends together from previous books and brings Aron McCoy home. There will be references to earlier events."

Continuing the Hell Yeah! Series with Book Eleven – Aron’s Homecoming!
Aron and Libby McCoy became husband and wife. No woman could desire a more perfect love. But tragedy struck... while diving on their honeymoon, Aron does not come up from beneath the blue waters off the Cayman Islands. A massive rescue mission is launched, but the only clues found were his wedding ring and later a shredded wet suit covered in blood. The McCoy family is devastated. Libby is heartbroken - but none of them are willing to give up.
At the end of Skye Blue, Noah McCoy receives a phone call from his cousin, Jaxson, that he has spotted a man who is the mirror image of Aron working at a ranch in Northern Mexico. Noah, determined to make his family whole again, takes off with Skye to see for himself. But on the way, he calls their PI, Roscoe, and finds out that there is more at stake - Aron may be alive, but he may be in more danger than the family ever thought possible.

'I'll Remember You' will give the reader a chance to see the whole McCoy clan and friends come together to right a wrong that is tearing apart a family. There is action, adventure, a wedding, babies being born, a Christmas family reunion and enough love and tenderness to make you grab your heart and wish you could be a McCoy.

*Content Warning: This version of the Hell Yeah! Series is the Explicit Version.

I have to say, I've been a fan of Sable Hunter from the first time I picked up one of her books.  I've followed this series right from the beginning.  I've shared every joy with the family, and every heartbreak as well.  My poor heart just broke when Aron went missing on his honeymoon.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I wanted to smack that evil bitch who found him.  Can you say SPOILED BITCH???  Nope, we don't like her.  I won't go into spoilers, but nope, we really don't like her!
If you haven't yet met the McCoy family, head to amazon and meet up with them.  You definitely won't regret it.  Also, be sure the check out Sable's website (http://sablehunter.com/

Happy Reading!
