About Ruth Cardello

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.

I, for one, can't wait to read it.  I've been a huge fan of Ruth Cardello from the start.  I've really enjoyed each and every one of her books so far.  Yes, I've read them all!!!  She is an awesome author and a lovely person as well.  Pick up one of her books today and I promise you'll continue on and read the rest of them.  She's that good.  I'll be sure to post my review once I've read the book!

Where the Streets Have No Name by Danielle Taylor

Two strangers. Two stories. One ending. Tasked with carrying out her grandfather’s final wishes, Amelia Quinlivan flies across the Atlantic and sets off driving around the coast of Ireland, spreading his ashes. Once finished, she plans on staying at her inherited cottage in Malin Head, and she plans on staying for a while. Accused of a crime he didn’t commit, Daniel Byrne might not know where he’s going, but he knows where he’s been; and that isn’t a place he wants to return to. When the feisty lass catches him by surprise, every instinct tells him to run from her and save them both the trouble he will undoubtedly cause. But love doesn’t always follow the rules, and when it’s worth fighting for, will Daniel let his pride get in the way of forever?

Cover Reveal!!! Target This by Lily White

I’m not sure what I was thinking that day. It was a normal Thursday, nothing new or exciting had occurred in the morning. I’d risen from bed, taken a shower and brushed my teeth. I’d then jumped on the 8:05 bus that ran a short distance between my house and the county library where I worked. The ride took its usual 15 minutes before it left me standing fresh faced in front of a building of gothic construction that was my favorite place in the world. After straightening my knee length skirt, I pushed open the door that led into the interior of the library. It was at that moment that my world would change – impossibly and forever. It was a fateful movement of wood that collided with the shoulder of a man that would alter my very existence. It wasn’t fear that I felt at that moment – more like the feeling of being watched. It was the feeling of knowing that danger lurks - the sensation of the hair standing on end at the back of your neck. Looking back on a moment that happened so many months ago, I now realize that I should have listened to that feeling. As I would later find out, the man standing in front of me referred to himself as Master Lucas… …and I was his next target.

Review Tour: Her Master's Courtesan by Lily White

It's one of the most talked about books this year!  Everybody has something to say about Her Master's Courtesan!


I am a Master.

You must know this fact to understand my story.

I capture women.

I break them down.

And I rebuild them.

If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.

I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.

Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.

I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.

And I am - in no way - a good man.

I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.

She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.

She was wrong.

A Sneak Peek!

     I heard steps approaching and when they stopped, his voice boomed out above me.
     “You will refer to me as Master. You will only speak to me when I’ve asked you a direct question.”
     I didn’t answer. Despite my nascent understanding that I was to submit to his demands, I couldn’t bring myself to respond and tell him that I would, in fact, submit. The idea rubbed across my thoughts like sandpaper – irritating and crude – the acts he’d already committed against me, making me detest him with such vehemence that I imagined returning to him the same level of violence. It was the first time I’d ever considered hurting another person and I felt the heavy weight of disgust with myself for believing that I would enjoy harming him, even though he was intent on harming me.

Amazon is once again letting the bullies win and has pulled HMC.

 It is still available on Barnes and Noble Buy Her Master's Courtesan at B&N  and Lily White has made it available on Smashwords Buy Her Master's Courtesan at Smashwords as well.


My Take On It:

First, I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. Now, on to the review:

Holy freaking crap! I'm not even sure where to start. I don't do spoilers and it's going to be hard to do this without them, but I'll give it a shot. This was, by far, the darkest book I've ever read. Darker than I expected. I have never read a book that made me hate, and I do mean HATE, one of the main characters. I seriously wanted to do him harm. I was like a tiny little cheerleader in the background, urging Rebecca to rain mayhem and a world of hurt down on Aiden's head. The fact that she didn't goes a long way to telling this story, although I didn't know it at the time. To say that Aiden is the master of the mind-fuck is putting it lightly. Somehow Lily White has managed to completely include the reader in the whole story and go through all of the emotions and ups and downs as Rebecca experiences them. I swear, at one point, I actually jumped at the snap of the lash! It's totally mind blowing. You definitely have to go into this book with an open mind, and be ready to go on a hell of a ride. You won't be sorry, and you might just learn a little bit more than you intended!!

Alluring Ties Review Tour

                                             Disclaimer from Bradi St. James

There are some situations which are not for everyone included in this novella: cheating, male/male romance and sex, and like all of Skye’s books, explicit language and hot ass sex.  If you can’t handle it, don’t read it. It’s that simple. But if you want to know more about myself and Erik, then turn the page and get started!

Alluring Ties is NOT a full length novel, but is a companion novella to the Bayou Stix series.
It is recommended to be read in this order:

Alluring Turmoil, Book 1 Bayou Stix  Amazon  B&N

Alluring Seduction, Book 2 Bayou Stix  Amazon  B&N 
Alluring Ties, Book 2.5 Bayou Stix                              

In Alluring Turmoil, we were introduced to Lexi Sloane’s two best friends, Bradi and Erik. Alluring Ties will take you on a journey into their pasts and bring you to their present.

Bradi St. James is a force to be reckoned with. She’s strong, independent, and has something to prove. All of her life, she’s watched the world around her and is determined to have a different fate from what she’s grown up with. The path you’ve always believed to be the right path, may not be your destiny after all.

Erik Jenson is a kind man. A nurturer and the kind of friend everyone wants to have. Growing up surrounded by friends and family who support him, he’s a confident man. The choices he must make and the chances he must take as he lives and grows make him the strong, loving man he becomes.

Alluring Ties contains explicit sex, including some male/male, strong language and is not intended for anyone under the age of 18 or anyone who does not like M/M romance

My Take On It:

First off, I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions here are my own.  Secondly, Alluring Ties was my introduction to this series, so yes, I read them out of order.  I will, however, be going back and starting at the beginning with Alluring Turmoil, because after this introduction, I absolutely have to.

Bradi St. James.  She's bold.  She's daring.  She's got it going on, and she knows it! 

Erik Jenson.  He's "that" guy.  The one we all want.  He's sweet, he's kind, he's sexy as hell.  He's got it all going on too.  Unfortunately for us, he's gay.

Together with Lexi, Micah, and a whole campus of people they embark on a  7 year journey that will lead them to where they are today.   They'll have to find their way through lies, and deceit, through bad decisions and drama.

From page one, I was sucked right in.  I absolutely loved how bold Bradi was.  I loved learning about who she is and what made her that way.  I have to say that the way Skye Turner tells a story is captivating.  These aren't people on a page.  These are friends and people you know.  You can't put down this book without knowing these people intimately and well!  And Erik?  Mr. Yummy?  I'm with Bradi, he's just too gorgeous to not be straight, it's just not fair, lol.  Not only is he delish, he's a great guy.  He loves his friends and shows it.  He's loyal and smart and funny.....see?  just not fair!

Do yourself a favor, pick this series up today.  You'll be so glad you did!

Review: Lissa: Sugar and Spice

Lissa: Sugar and Spice (The Wilde Sisters)Lissa: Sugar and Spice by Sandra Marton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

She's beautiful. She's talented. She's smart. She's stubborn as a goat. She's prideful as only a Wilde can be! She's determined to fix her life and do it without her family ever knowing it was broken.

He's gorgeous. He's a household name. He's cranky and snarly. He's buried his head in the sand and he's the only one who doesn't know it. Barely hanging on, yet not quite ready to give up.

Their worlds collide when a slightly devious (HA! slightly, lol) common acquaintance manipulates them both. The sparks start flying immediately. Their unknowing mediator? A huge dog named Brutus!

You'll find yourself giggling, outright laughing, and ok, I'll admit it, at least one inappropriate laugh (sorry Nick!). You'll experience the sadness and the betrayal and the struggle they go through as they learn about themselves and each other. You'll get to hang out with the rest of the Wilde gang as they gather to protect and defend their Melissa! Join Nick and Lissa as they fight for their HEA!!

We won't even talk about the HUGE and SHOCKING surprise!!

Sandra Marton takes us on a Wilde ride yet again. Throughout the series I fallen in love with each of the Wilde siblings and their mates.
