But nothing could have prepared him for the brewing war, or the beautiful alpha female, Talia. Gene is instantly drawn to the mesmerizing she-wolf. He wants to trust Talia, but it’s hard to trust anyone–especially when they are related to your adversary. Enemies are everywhere, and Gene must fight to protect his pack. 

Natalia ‘Talia’ Alvarez grew up away from the pack. Talia’s first encounter with werewolves was when she was abducted and taken prisoner by her grandfather. This experience leaves her weary of her werewolf heritage and unable to trust her rescuers. As a new mother protecting her son is her first priority. Talia knows her only chance at freedom is to team up with Gene. Talia finds herself falling for the alpha as they begin to work together. The thought of trusting Gene terrifies her, and she can’t help but wonder if he will betray her too.  Continue reading

“Trouble With The Law” by Becky McGraw (#11 Texas Trouble Series)


beckymCriminal defense attorney Veronica Winters always wondered what it would be like with sexy former detective Trace Rooks. Even though he’s an ex-convict now, because of her, she still wonders. Ronnie has always felt damned guilty for recommending a plea deal that sent an innocent man to jail. When she finds out he’s back in jail and a friend asks her to question him about the situation, Ronnie thinks she might finally have the opportunity to set things right with him. 

At the jail though, she finds a changed man she almost doesn’t recognize. The scars on the outside are nothing compared to the scars he bears inside. Instead of the charming, easy going man she represented four years prior, his attitude now is as hard as his body. But she finds out the new, edgier Trace Rooks turns her on even more than the man she knew before. 

Trace Rooks, would love nothing better than seeing the Shark Lady get her due for sending him to prison unjustly. He would make sure Ronnie Winters eventually got hers, but at the moment, he had other priorities. Like taking down his corrupt father. The man who had paid off the woman touted to be the best criminal defense attorney in the state to help send him to prison. 

When Ronnie shows up at the jail asking questions, Trace isn’t giving her anything except a hard time. He believes she’s there on his father’s behalf again, and there is no way in hell he is falling for her lines again. Trace was a man that learned for his mistakes, and trusting Ronnie Winters had been the biggest of his life. 

But when Ronnie doesn’t get the answers she wants from him, she starts digging around on her own. Trace knows that can get him killed or sent back to prison again. He decides that the best thing he can do is heed his grandfather’s advice to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. He isn’t sure which camp Ronnie Winters falls into yet, but he’s going to keep her close until he figures it out. 

Maybe he could get the answers he’d been looking for the last three years. If not, he could at least get his pound of flesh from the mouthy, leggy redhead every man in Texas was afraid of. Trace wasn’t afraid of Ronnie Winters, but he quickly finds out he isn’t immune to her either. When that leads to thinking he might just have misjudged the beautiful redhead before, and maybe there was more to her than met the eye, Trace knows he’s in deep trouble. Continue reading

Skye Jordan/Joan Swan(Author)

You may or may not know this, but Skye Jordan is the pseudonym for USA Today and New York Times, Best Selling Author, Joan Swan.  Skye Jordan is the name she writes her “steamier” books under and we’re SO thankful she does!!

“Reckless” is the first book in her “Renegades” series as Skye Jordan. The second book, “Rebel”, which I’m dying to read, will be released in the Fall of 2013.

As Joan swan, she is the author of the “Phoenix Rising” series and the “Covert Affairs” series .  She’s also co-author of the New York Times Best Seller and the last winner of WHAT’S HOT, “Wicked Firsts”.  She collaborated with fellow authors, Alexandra Ivy, Elisabeth Naughton, Laura Wright, Katie Reus and Cynthia Eden.  Joan’s story in the “Wicked Firsts” anthology, is “First Temptation”. It is book 1.5 in her “Covert Affairs” series. “Intimate Enemies” is book 1 and book 2 will be released in late 2013.

She currently has three books out in her “Phoenix Rising” Series, “Fever”, “Blaze” and “Rush”.  I have yet to read these books, but they are on my TBR list and if “Reckless” is ANY indication of what an amazing author she is, then I’m in for a treat.

If you haven’t read “Reckless” yet, I HIGHLY recommend it.  It has become one of my absolute favorite books ever.  In my review I call Skye Jordan/Joan Swan the “Michelangelo of Erotica”, because she paints the most amazing picture with her words. It has the perfect amount of naughtiness to feed the bad girl in us and the perfect amount of class to let the good girl in us think we’re not doing anything wrong. Who are we kidding though right? Soon as a good girl reads about Jax, she wants to do so many bad things to him that we’ll forever be begging for redemption. lol  But oooh what a way to sin. Yummy!!

Bound and Freed Boxed Set by Nikki Sex


Bound and FreedThis is a collection of 5 BDSM books from the Bound and Freed Series by Nikki Sex. I have to say, I was pretty impressed!  I normally don’t read BDSM books.  Not because I don’t like them, I just don’t see them around that often and the last one I did read, I was seriously disappointed and annoyed with.  But OBVIOUSLY I haven’t been looking hard enough! Because here this amazing series is!

Since the books are short stories, ranging from the shortest at 42 pages and the longest at 172 pages, I DO recommend you buy the boxed set.  It makes the reading transition from book to book smoother and you’re able to fully appreciate the story in it’s entirety vs bits and pieces spread out.  I wish Nikki Sex had just made it into one glorious book, but I also respect the fact she had her reasons.  Many people like the short reads and as long as you’re aware it’s a short story series and there will be cliff hangers from book to book, then you won’t be disappointed.

“RECKLESS” by Skye Jordan


RecklessA couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life.

Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he’s given up acting. Finding a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping stone to success is virtually impossible, so when the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a chance at a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more. Lots more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle. And if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the rest. Continue reading
