Review of Boots on the Ground (Homefront Trilogy #1) by Rebecca Crowley

Boots on the Ground

A nice way to plant your boots on the ground!

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance 

Book Length (Est.): 106 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

It takes a strong heart to connect roots with wings.

Homefront, Book 1

With a life that started in foster care and nearly ended in the mountains of Afghanistan, Grady Reid is more than ready to hang up his sergeant’s stripes when his Army contract expires.

Small-town Meridian, Kansas, seems as good a place as any to finally put down roots. He’s dumped his savings into a ramshackle farmhouse and is on his way to trading bullets for bull breeding when an exquisitely beautiful, totally unattainable blonde turns his head faster than a pivoting cutting horse.

Dr. Laurel Hayes longs to escape the confines of stuffy, small-town life for an adrenaline-fueled, transient lifestyle delivering medical aid in unstable regions around the world. Then she meets Grady, a man with enticing eyes, a slow smile—and not an ounce of the wanderlust that tugs at her soul.

Their lives are headed in opposite directions. But as something more powerful than attraction, desire, or even lust draws them together, something’s got to give…or their hearts could break under the strain.

Warning: Contains a strong, silent Texan military man with wounds he can’t name, and the gorgeous doctor tough enough to heal them.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Samhain Publishing in exchange for an honest review*

I always enjoy reading any story that has to do with a strong military man. Grady Reid is fresh out of the Army and must adjust to the civilian lifestyle. With him growing up in foster care he is accustomed to being on his own and making his own choices.

Dr. Laurel Hayes lives in a small town that her family practically built. Her only dream is to leave this town and volunteer in medical-aid missions around the world. Seeing a strong man in her exam room will definitely throw a wrench in her plans.

I really enjoyed this story. The author shows the readers what soldiers must go through coming back into the civilian life after years of deployment. Grady is very jumpy when it comes to loud noises and crowds. The instant chemistry between them is felt throughout the book. I did feel that Laurel kind of changed her mind as to what she could handle very fast. She just woke up and it was an instant mind change. I do believe we will read more about their story in the future but I really think this book could have used another chapter or two.

Overall, I think this is a good book for anyone that loves a romance story, just the right kind of emotional and a light but sexy read.

My Favorite Moment: I really like how Laurel tries to make light of the situation to make Grady feel like he can open up and talk to her.

“At least you get to travel in the Army. That’s pretty cool,” she offered.

“Yeah, Iraq and Afghanistan. Nice beach weather, shame about the IEDs.”

Review of Full Contact (Worth the Fight #2) by Sidney Halston

Full Contact

You’ll be begging as he slowly takes the bases…

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance (MMA)

Book Length (Est.): 288 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Sidney Halston returns to steamy Tarpon Springs, Florida, where a hell-raising bad boy prepares to get down and dirty for the woman he loves.

How could she have been so stupid? When Jessica Cross decides to give her violently jealous boyfriend—the otherwise influential and charming Dennis Stavros—a second chance, she very nearly becomes a statistic. After weeks of healing from a broken rib and collapsed lung, and with Dennis behind bars, Jessica finally feels ready to come out of hiding. But will she ever be able to take a chance on love again with someone new?

Mixed martial arts fighter Slade Martin knows he has a bad reputation. Hell, he’s probably earned it. So it won’t be easy to convince beautiful, vulnerable Jessica that she can trust him—that from the moment she walked into his life, she’s been the only one he’s wanted. Powerful and confident, Slade knows he can honor his vow to protect Jessica body and soul. Winning her heart will be another matter . . . but a woman like Jessica is worth the fight.

 

YAY – Double Review!

 

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

I definitely enjoyed this book. It didn’t have as much humor as its predecessor, but it still kept up with the same tension, love, and sex.

Slade has always enjoyed his bad boy image and took full benefit of the women who it attracted, problem now is that he’s attracted to Jessica and it’s not just her body he wants. He wants more. Question is: How does a playboy convince the super sweet and vulnerable Jessica that he wants more? And how will she react when she gets to see his harem of groupies up front and personal?

This book picks up where Slade and Jessica left off in the first one, her recovering from an abusive ex and him taking care of her…if she wants it or not. She brings out his protectiveness.

Jessica is sweet and caring and the things she’s forced to do in this story are heartbreaking. Her ex is psycho and won’t give up until he’s forced to. She’s put into uncomfortable positions that no one should ever have to be in. And all the while she has to deal with all of the emotions that come with loving Slade…including jealousy.

Full Contact is a great sequel to Against the Cage. It has romance, a little suspense, and some hot “right here, right now” sex.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: It was hilarious when the women just started showing up at Slade’s house…while Jessica was there.

“He’s right. I’d totally slap a bitch right now. Damn him.” 

My Favorite Moment: The fourth date…and fourth base. LOL!

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review* 

Slade Martin is a professional cage fighter that has been instructed to never fight again. One more blow to the head could cause permanent damage or death. One thing Slade still has going for him is the ladies. They just fall all over him. Not being one for relationships he is kind of known as the man whore of Tarpon Springs.

Jessica Cross is coming out of an abusive relationship. Slade stood up for her one night and that caused the beating of her life from her fiancé. Lying in a hospital bed with multiple breaks and a collapsed lung she knows she has had enough and deserves much more.

Slade takes care of Jessica and never leaves her side in the hospital or after for that matter. He knows he has some intense feelings and they are well…….foreign. When Jessica agrees to go out on a date with him and the sparks will fly. Trying to be a perfect gentleman, Jessica wants no part of it. She wants what she reads in books, passionate, lustful, out of control sex and she knows Slade can deliver. Falling in love was not supposed to be part of the deal.

I loved reading this book. This is the second book in the Worth the Fight series. Slade is a typical bachelor that loves women, fighting and his friends. The way he is so passionate with Jessica is magical. I love the way Jessica handles herself and does not change for anyone. She can order a big fat steak and dessert and not feel bad. With that being said, when Jessica wants something she is not afraid to speak her mind and she knows exactly what to say to Slade to put him back in his place.

I would not just recommend this book; I am telling you that you have to read it! It’s a great love story about fighting for what you want and hey, a bad ass fighter that falls in love for the first time is really HOT!

My Favorite Laughable Moment: I laughed so hard when Jessica was getting ready for her date with Roger and Slade was trying to show how much he cared for her.

“Ah! I tore my stockings. Fucking stockings! Fuuuccking stooocckings!” she screamed as her climax began to build. “Just wait in the car. Be right out.” 

My Favorite Sincere Moment: I was touched when Slade was in the hospital and overheard Jessica talking to her parents.

Review of Flaming Hot (Firefighters of Lanville, TX #2) by Lynn LaFleur

Flaming Hot

Suit Up Boys and Girls…It’s Going To Be A Hot One!  

 

Genre: Romance, Erotica, Firefighter Romance

Book Length (Est.): 289 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Big and bold, strong and sexy, the firefighters of the Lanville, Texas, Volunteer Fire Department know how to turn up the heat…

Fiery

Sparks fly the moment Eve and Quade meet. Fear of heartbreak makes them wary but neither can deny the scorching waves of desire that leave them wanting so much more…

Flare

Paige wonders about Cort’s past but she can’t ignore the heat she feels inside every time he touches her. And things only get hotter when this sexy firefighter takes her to the heights of extreme carnal pleasure…

Flash

For years Kirk has kept a secret that not even his twin knows. But the arrival in town of a sexy newcomer turns up the heat and keeps the flames of passion burning all night long…

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received an ARC of this book free from Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review*

I fell in love with Lynn’s Lanville volunteer firefighters when the first story was published in a complication called Hot Shots. And I’m so glad I came across it! After that we got three more captivating stories in Smokin’ Hot. I couldn’t wait for Flaming Hot…I’m addicted.

 

Fiery 

Eve’s been hurt and doesn’t want to risk being hurt again, which is why dating isn’t even on her radar. There’s just one problem with that, she’s definitely on Quade’s, and although he’s a patient man he’s done waiting. He wants Eve and knows just how to be persuasive enough to get the chance.

Once Eve agrees to go out with Quade things heat up very quickly. Neither can get enough of the other. He’s falling for her too fast and she’s enjoying spending time with him, but she doesn’t want more, and when he drops an invitation on her lap she panics.

Thank goodness for meddling friends and talkative labs.

“I like when you look at me that way.”

“What way?” she asked, her voice coming out huskier than she’d prefer.

“Like you’re thinking about all the things I could do to you with my tongue.” 

Their relationship is light for the most part and the sex is hot and heavy, but they never really delve into why she sucks at relationships. It just kind of glossed over it. Oh well, guess the reason wasn’t important.

4 Fiery Hearts! 

 

Flare 

Paige isn’t looking for Mr. Right, simply because she doesn’t expect to find him, so instead she’s looking for Mr. Light-My-Panites-On-Fire and boy oh boy does she find him.

Cort has business in Lanville, and it’s something he can’t share. He doesn’t want to be secretive, but he doesn’t really have a choice. Of course, he didn’t expect falling for a gorgeous woman in the few days he’d be there either, and that just complicated his situation.

“My God, you’re an amazing woman.” Cort turned her around, gently pushed on her shoulders until she sat on the bed. “I don’t think I’ve ever known a woman as sexy as you.” 

The attraction between Paige and Cort is instantaneous and neither do anything to deter that fact. Sometimes you can’t let something good pass you by. They can always figure out the details later, which thankfully they do.

The ending kind of seemed a little too bing-bang-boom, but it still wrapped up nicely.

3 Fiery Hearts! 

 

Flash 

Wow! Just wow! Now that was freaking H-O-T!

Kirk and Kory are the sexy twins. Kory’s the horn dog, always looking to get laid, and Kirk is the laid back quiet one who wants to settle down. Problem is…he’s gay, and no one knows. It’s probably the only secret he’s ever kept from his brother. But when a sexy stranger comes to town and leaves him breathless he figures it’s time to finally come clean to not only his brother, but also his parents.

Josh isn’t the typical rich kid. Yes, he has money, but he also wants to know how it feels to work with his hands for that money. With no work experience, Kirk hires him on the spot…of course who needs experience when you have a nice ass. Only problem is that he only needs a job for a few months and then he wants to continue on down the road.

Kirk and Josh hit it off from the start and it doesn’t take long for Kirk to open up to him. Their romance is filled with want, need, and a whole lot of passion.

“Watching you jerk off was one of the hottest things I’ve ever seen.” 

But what happens when those few months are up and it’s time for Josh to get back on the road? Sadness, that’s what.

This was my favorite story and I absolutely loved the ending, PDA and all.

5 Fiery Hearts!

 

Flaming Hot continues the greatness that is Lynn LaFleur’s Firefighters of Lanville, TX. With every character comes a completely independent story, but at the same time keeps in all the characters we’ve grown to love. I can’t wait to see whose next. I’m betting someone can get Kory to settle down…wonder if it’ll be that sweet waitress he secretly has eyes for.

Review of Heat of the Moment by Robin Kaye

Heat of the Moment

All is fair when you play with fire… 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Book Length (Est.): 106 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Cameron O’Leary, a 4th generation firefighter turned arson investigator, thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world—after a year of sickness in the family, everyone’s finally on the mend, and his life can go back to its even keel. But even though Cameron has moved to Boston to be there for his family, some sort of live-in nurse is still necessary, given the demands of his job.

Erin Crosby is financing her master’s thesis in social work by acting as a home health care nurse. Working for Cameron seems like the perfect gig—low key, plenty of time to work on her thesis, and the patient is lovely. She might never have lived with a man before—she’s never found anyone she cared about that much, had barely even considered it—but Cameron is easy to live with, and an easy friendship blooms between them.

But it gets harder and harder for Cameron to keep his hands off of his charming employee—and for Erin to remember that she hasn’t really moved into Cameron’s life.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Penguin Group/InterMix in exchange for an honest review*

Cameron O’Leary is a 4th generation firefighter and is now an arson investigator that needs a live in nanny for his daughter in order to meet the demands of his job. He has lived a dating, sex free life, and has not even thought about it in two years. Cam’s focus is his job and his daughter, Janie.

Erin Crosby is trying to get her Masters and is acting as a home health care nurse. When her best friend sends her on an immediate interview she gets more than she bargained for. Becoming a live in nanny will be very challenging as her boss is H-O-T and single. Not to mention his daughter is amazing and very smart.

I truly loved this book. A single dad trying to raise his sick daughter and keep up with the demands of his job….WOW! Cameron and Erin have instant chemistry although neither wants to admit it. This is a quick read and the storyline tends to jump where needed, keeping you interested the entire time. I really fell in love with the characters and would definitely recommend this to well…..everyone!

My Favorite Moment: I really loved the interview. I feel like the ice was broken right away so everyone could be comfortable living together. However, it also really made me laugh.

Review of Teach Me (Southern Nights #1) by Ella Sheridan

Teach Me

Fight For Me!

Love Me!

And I Will Never Give Up! 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance, Suspense

Book Length (Est.): 223 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

A woman determined to heal…

Shy researcher Jess Kingston spent the last eight weeks recovering from her ex-boyfriend’s brutal attack. Body healed, she’s ready to put her life back together—except her ex isn’t ready to let go. She won’t cower in a corner while Brit tortures her, but she’s powerless to fight back.

A man determined to resist…

Ex-military security specialist Conlan James avoids commitment like the plague. His job, his Harley, and the occasional one-night stand are all he needs, until the day he rescues Jess from a tense situation and realizes he can’t get her off his mind. He can teach her to protect herself, but protecting his heart is another matter.

A madman determined to win…

As the deadly game of cat-and-mouse with Brit heats up, so does the hunger between Con and Jess. Safety might be found in numbers, but in bed, all bets are off—and the wrong move could lead to heartbreak. Or death.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of All Night Reads in exchange for an honest review*

She has a crazy ex. He has a broken past. Neither expected to find the intensity they found in each other.

After being brutally attacked by her ex-boyfriend Jess just wants to move forward. She wants her life back. What she doesn’t want is her completely insane ex stalking her. But that’s exactly what she gets.

After seeing something that brightened his day, Conlan began going for coffee every Monday morning in hopes of seeing the one woman who’d unknowingly caught his attention. He went weeks without seeing her again, and then bam there she is. He’d blinked though and then she was gone, or at least he thought she was until he went out into the parking lot. What he found there brought out his possessive side and that in its own made him aware that he should stay far far away from her.

Conlan isn’t relationship material. He doesn’t want commitment. He tells her straight out. So why can’t he keep his mind, and occasionally hands, off her? Mixed signals can cause not only confusion, but hurt, especially when things go from hot to freezing cold in mere seconds.

Jess won’t let Conlan push her away though. She’s survived too much just to roll over and play dead and if she’s going to risk anything it’s going to be well worth the potential heartbreak. She’ll fight him for him until he has no choice but give into his own desires…her.

Together Jess and Conlan will face the enemy, her conniving ex who’ll stop at nothing to make her his again. And it isn’t pretty. There is definitely violence when it comes to her ex. Friendly warning: if you have issues reading about women getting abused then you may not want to read this.

Teach Me is chalked full of violence, suspense, sex, and romance. It never stops moving forward, which makes it very difficult to put down, each chapter leaving you ready for the next.

Downside – the end jumps forward a little and after all the detail throughout the book it fell flat for me. It almost seemed emotionless, which is weird because Jess was experiencing a lot of emotions.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: This was actually a tender moment, but I swear I couldn’t help but laugh… Two stokes…really? LOL

Review of Anything He Wants & Castaway by Sara Fawkes

Anything He Wants

Dysfunctional Brothers

Incapable of Love  

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Erotica 

Book Length (Est.): 667 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

A powerful billionaire who always gets what he wants.An innocent protégée who will explore the darkest reaches of her own desire.Experience their intoxicating tale—now available for the first time as a complete saga… 

Anything He Wants: Lucy Delacourt’s temp position isn’t quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. But everything changes when the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn’t know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn’t nearly enough to satisfy his need.

Castaway: As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But Jeremiah has no place in his life for love, and as Lucy falls deeper for him, she risks having her heart shattered. Making matters worse, Jeremiah’s fiercest rival is determined to steal Lucy’s affection…and to do it, he’ll show her the sinister side of Jeremiah’s opulent world.  With nowhere to turn and no one to trust, there’s only one thing Lucy knows for sure: she’ll never be free from Jeremiah’s sweet possession.

Mindy’s Review:

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review*

Anything He Wants:

Lucy Delacourt works as a temp doing data entry to pay her bills. Making sure she gets to work on time everyday just to ride the elevator with a handsome stranger. When her handsome stranger seduces her she loses control of herself and gives into the divine temptation that is Jeremiah Hamilton, the CEO of Hamilton Industries. With him cutting all temp jobs he decides to give her an opportunity she cannot refuse.

Jeremiah Hamilton is a very complicated man. Being a billionaire and running his business means nothing when you were forced into the family business. Having an abusive childhood leaves no room for love when it comes to Jeremiah having relationships. When danger comes knocking for the entire Hamilton family his only goal is to keep Lucy safe. But when she confesses her love to him….he walks out the door, and Lucas now has the ability to kidnap Lucy.

This is a great read with contracts, hot sex, and of course family drama. Lucy falls hard for Jeremiah and it is just so hard to tell his true feelings. Sometimes I was not sure if I really liked him or not. I guess every man carries a little of their father in them.

 

Castaway:

Lucas Hamilton is the older brother that has a lot of hate for his family. When his father died everything was left to Jeremiah excluding himself and his mother. Lucas feels that Jeremiah has taken everything from him forcing him into a life of crime.

Kidnapping Lucy has become the thrill of his life. He gets to make his brother jealous and he can use her for his own business as a translator. Although being in a dangerous job brings more danger to Lucy.

I have a lot of mixed feeling with Castaway. I kind of felt like this was a complete different story with the same characters. The romance was left behind and it turned into suspense. Of course Jeremiah comes in to try to save the day….too late and not before she has slept with that brother as well. The best part of this story was Jeremiah has to face his true feelings for Lucy if he wants to keep her around.

I was not a big fan of Lucas in this book. He will do anything to get back at his brother including using Lucy to his advantage.

Review of Ruse by Kaley Copely

Ruse

Even revenge can be HOT! 

Genre: Erotica 

Book Length (Est.): 54 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

WARNING: This story contains explicit sex.

My pussy has a craving: Broad shoulders, finger-trapping thick hair, a voice to melt your panties off and eight inches of rock-hard mounting sensation.

Asta Everly is a bitch.

. . . Everyone knows it.

One of the wealthiest girls on campus—maybe even, the wealthiest.  But as long as people know their place, Asta’s middle name could be bitch—for all she cares.

But lately they’ve attached a new name.  Whore.  And the frenzy has stuck viciously in her mind.

When there’s no going back, the best consolation she has is to destroy someone else’s reputation—someone not so wealthy, someone not such a bitch, someone untouched—too pure to even hook up one time before saying— I do— the girl on campus whose face is smattered over every pathetic, waste of time, good deed, fundraising poster.  She just needs to enlist a game player to even her private score. . .

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Asta Everly is one of the most popular girls on campus. And I don’t mean the good kind of popular. Being named the whore of the campus has really struck a nerve down deep and she will stop at nothing to clear her image, even if she has to take down the cleanest image on campus to do so.

Shay McCallahan is known as the charity girl. She has the cleanest reputation on campus. Still being a virgin at her age, waiting for the right man and marriage makes her an easy target for Asta.

Bryson Cooper is the star campus athlete that is completely in love with Asta and is willing to do anything that she asks.

When I first started reading this book I was a bit disturbed by Asta’s actions. I am more the type to help people that are being picked on and really just wanted to kick her ass for being such a bitch for her own pleasure. However, I continued to read and actually really liked the story. Although a very short read the writing is really good, lots of humor and true love was found.

I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a short story, friendship and love.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: Asta really knows what she wants and how she wants it. Never settle!

“Pure pleasure for me – and the best-taste-of-woman, forever imprinted into his mind-my gift to him.”

Review of Oh, Naughty Night! By Leslie Kelly

 

Oh Naughty Night

Brings a whole new meaning to ‘I’d like to make a deposit’!  

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 224 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Hot for the holidays!

Every Halloween party has its share of eye candy, and journalist Chaz Browning has just spotted a treat he can’t resist—a deliciously wicked witch with sparkly red hair and deep, dark eyes that promise all kinds of sexy tricks. She wants no names. No strings. Just a night of lust-filled magic.

The witch’s mask may hide her face, but Lulu Vandenberg knows exactly who Chaz is. They spent most of their childhoods tormenting each other. So the moment Chaz touches her and everything turns to lust, Lulu knows she can never reveal her identity. But desire has a memory of its own, and Chaz has vowed to find his fantasy woman before the holidays end…

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Harlequin in exchange for an honest review*

I’m not quite sure which holiday I enjoyed more. The delectable Halloween treats, the silent Thanksgiving admissions, or the emotional gift giving Christmas. Hell, who am I kidding, I loved them all.

Lulu was looking to get back into the proverbial saddle and thought a one night stand would do the trick, but when her potential man turns out to be a lot less than she’d hoped for and can’t even spark her flame she feels utterly frustrated. Not only that, but then she sees her childhood next door neighbor, the same one she’d spent years tormenting, looking hot as sin…and looking directly at her. Only bad thing, he doesn’t recognize her, which leads to a night neither will soon forget.

Chaz fell hard for the sexy witch, and couldn’t get her out of his mind, even after she disappeared without so much as a word. When he searches for his mystery woman, he finds Lulu instead, and much to his surprise she grew up, and grew up hot. But to him, she’ll always be the reason his tailbone occasionally hurts.

As neighbors once again Lulu and Chaz begin spending more and more time together. She wants to tell him the truth about her being his mystery girl, but at the same time fears his reaction. Friendship is all they’re meant to have. But sometimes passion ignites even between friends and lines that once were suddenly become blurry.

Oh, Naughty Night! is as sweet as it is hot. From the tender ‘friend’ moments to the scorching public sex you won’t be able to put it down. I know I couldn’t.

Downside…the beginning seemed to drag on forever. Yes, it was hot. Yes, I didn’t want to put it down. But holy hell, one night took up a quarter of the book.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: Throughout the story it tells of all the mean things Lulu did to Chaz when they were children, but when she explains the real reason behind the ladder incident I couldn’t help but laugh. Guess their parents were right. 

My Favorite Moment: There are a lot of crazy hot moments, especially the ones in the first quarter of the book, but Lawrence’s casual response to a question regarding Lulu and Chaz and their responses made for the perfect moment. Not to mention how the rest of the weekend turned out. OMG! Yum!

Cover Reveal: The Ultimate Killer (Battles in the Dark #2) by Kimberley Clark

The Ultimate Killer

The Ultimate Killer (Battles in the Dark #2)

Release Date: November 5, 2014

Brought back to life, Kira awoke to a world where she no longer belonged. She was one of them now…a mythlend, the scourge that she’d lived her entire life hunting. What was worse, she had become the species that she and a number of other mythlends had tried desperately to stop from being awoken…the Hunrati.

But they had failed.

By the time Kira had opened her eyes, the Hunrati were already living up to their reputation, torturing, massacring, burning cities to the ground like all indestructible killing machines do when they see themselves as gods; any resistance to their actions were therefore deemed futile within days of their first appearance.

Kira wanted to stop them, but she had become their prisoner when she attacked their Queen out of rage for what they had done, and as such, she was rendered incapable of using any of her abilities.

Trapped, alone, and not knowing what had happened to those she cared about, her only way out was to earn their trust. That meant getting close to the volatile and extremely attractive Pheres, and doing everything he instructed, regardless of how depraved it was.

But how close was she willing to allow such a dangerous creature when he wasn’t the man she loved?

Better yet…how far was she willing to go before she lost her humanity completely?

 

Excerpt:

Knowing Pheres wouldn’t wait long for her to cooperate before he decided to punish her; Kira grabbed either side of the tub and pulled herself upwards until she was standing. The water and soap suds cascaded down her body, her wet hair clinging to her breasts.

Trying not to act as if she cared she was on display in front of him, her stare held fast on his face.

Those golden-amber eyes of his scorched her skin as he looked her up and down, taking in every part of her and making her want to cover herself with her hands. Kira managed to restrain herself and kept them by her sides. It became worse as those luminescent eyes became focused on a number of soap bubbles making their way down one of her breasts, curling around one pink nipple, then following a path down her stomach till they found their way between her legs. His eyes stopped there, not following the soap as it continued to travel down her legs. Instead becoming transfixed on that one spot which for some reason seemed to escalate in temperature, as did the cheeks on her face.
