what a wicked earl wants
What a Wicked Earl Wants (The Sinful Scoundrels #1)
by Vicky Dreiling
Blurb:
WILL A RAKE’S WICKED WAYS
Andrew Carrington, Earl of Bellingham, believes in being a gentleman, whether it’s fishing a soggy stranger out of the Thames or assisting a fetching lady into his bed. If the stranger becomes a friend and the lady a mistress, all the better. He certainly welcomes the opportunity to help Laura Davenport, a dazzling young widow with a rebellious stepson. Her gratitude, he hopes, will take an amorous form. But from the moment he sets foot in her drawing room, he gets far more than he bargained for …

LEAD THE LADY ASTRAY?
It was a moment of desperation. On the brink of losing her stepson, Laura turned to the notorious Lord Bellingham for help. Suddenly she, a vicar’s daughter, is in the precarious position of resisting his tantalizing advances. How Bell earned his wicked reputation is clear; the surprise is how much more there is to him than the gossip sheets could possibly reveal. Now every moment with this dangerously desirable man puts Laura’s good name at risk-and promises pleasure unlike any she has ever known …

Any Duchess Will D0Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove #4)
by Tessa Dare
Blurb:
What’s a duke to do, when the girl who’s perfectly wrong becomes the woman he can’t live without?
Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season—or any season—but his diabolical mother abducts him to “Spinster Cove” and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl.
Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn’t dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week’s employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother’s “duchess training”… and fail miserably.
But in London, Pauline isn’t a miserable failure. She’s a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure—a woman who ignites Griff’s desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won’t be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess—can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart?

Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.
With a lady
Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.
And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be, she pretends.
In a tower.
But Edie’s inability to hide her feelings makes pretending impossible, and when their marriage implodes, she retreats to a tower—locking Gowan out.
Now Gowan faces his greatest challenge. Neither commands nor reason work with his spirited young bride. How can he convince her to give him the keys to the tower…
When she already has the keys to his heart?

Robbed of her sight by a childhood fever, Audrey has been kept in virtual seclusion by her family. And now the enigmatic Robert Henslow, Earl of Knightsbridge, has complicated her scheme to gain independence, insisting they pretend to be engaged.
Duty brought Robert to Audrey’s doorstep. As for what makes him propose marriage…it might be guilt. Compassion. Or something far more urgent and unexpected. Their counterfeit union was supposed to be for Audrey’s benefit. Yet it’s Robert who yearns to prove to the intriguing Audrey how much they both have to gain by making it real-and convincing her to submit to the most blissful passion.

secret-lady-julia-200The Secret Life of Lady Julia
by Lecia Cornwall
Blurb:
Just a year or so ago, Julia was a lovely earl’s daughter, celebrating her betrothal to David, the Duke of Temberlay and set for a life of elegance and luxury.
But at her betrothal ball, she meets a stranger, a man who makes her feel like the most beautiful woman in the world—and when your fianc√© thinks of you more as a little sister than a bride, that kind of attention can certainly turn a lady’s head.
Thomas Merritt is a thief with a secret past of his own. He attended Julia’s betrothal ball to steal her jewels, but ended up leaving with far more, utterly bewitched by the beautiful, innocent Lady Julia. After their one glorious evening together, Thomas leaves London, knowing he can never be part of her world again.
Julia’s steamy encounter with Thomas Merritt changes her life. Now, she’s no longer an earl’s daughter (disowned), or a duke’s bride-to-be (deceased). She’s an outcast and a mere paid companion to a lady who used to be her equal.
But things are looking up. She’s on her way to Vienna on a breathtaking adventure, and her employer’s handsome brother seems more than willing to overlook Julia’s scandalous past. Love is in the air, dear readers!
Julia and Thomas meet again in Vienna under most inconvenient circumstances during the great peace conference meant to determine the fate of Europe now that Napoleon has been defeated. All the crowned heads of Europe are in attendance, and at the lavish parties, salons, and grand balls, secrets lurk behind every fan, under honorable military tunics, and beyond every half-closed door, and Thomas is not the only thief in town. When Julia discovers a plot that could destroy her new life, Thomas Merritt is the only man who can save the day, and only she can save him from certain death.
And at yet another betrothal ball, they meet again….

When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up. He can’t resist her smile, or her curves. But Justice’s past doesn’t make him husband, or father, material.
Patience and Justice think they’ll succumb to just one kiss… Then one more… Okay, just one night together. But they might learn that falling in love is beyond anyone’s control.

Review: Dream Nights with the CEO by Kathy Lyons

DNwtCEO-500px Title: Nights with the CEO
Author: Kathy Lyons
Release date: May 27, 2013

Dream Nights with the CEO is Kathy Lyons latest new release~! Or will be since it’ll be released in a couple of hours ;) But anyways this story was a huge change from what I would usually read and I’ll say I was hooked on it. It was also my first read of Kathy Lyons’ book. Although I read her as Jade Lee :D

The heroine, Megan, is an assistant – and sometime personal assistant- to her hot hunky billionaire boss, Wyatt Monroe, who owns and runs a hotel chain and Bed and Breakfast houses around the country. She goes on a business trip with him to St. Louis looking to buy and add more B&B to his business. But every waking moment spent with Wyatt is making it harder for Megan to keep her task a business one since she has been having hot and erotic wet dreams about her hunky boss. And she’s not afraid to do lots of naughty and delicious things with him, I mean come on, it’s only a dream, right? ;)

Low and behold to Megan’s unbeknown fantasy, Wyatt is have the same exact dreams! And he loves it. Knowing that he can’t breach their boss/ assistant relationship and ruin a perfect partnership he can only dream of being with her and that will be enough to satisfy his needs- barely.  Every time he dreams of his sexy assistant he can’t help but hide his feelings for her as the morning calls for business and working side by side with her is making it difficult to concentrate. But as the dreams progresses and the steamier it gets, their work relationship begins the change and feelings begins to develop outside of the dream realm. But this is a short business trip and he can’t lose his best assistant to a night of fling nor lose his chances with her as things begins to heat up.

This was a fast and hot read and I enjoyed it rather more than I thought I would. I have never really read anything like this before so it was a great start to get me going. As many may already know, Ms. Kathy Lyons also writes under the Historical romance author name of Jade Lee which I love~ So reading her paranormal erotica New Adult romance was a great shift from what I was used to from her works.

This was also a different kind of plot from what I know of and really was what caught my attention to this book. I mean, having erotic wet dreams of a certain person (or persons) is rather enticing and hot, but to have the same hot dream as that person, doing naughty things together is rather scary and…..habba habba… ;) Me likey

There was one point in the story that I lost interest and didn’t really care for and saw it as a moot point in the story. I found it unnecessary and should have been structured in a different set up.  I love you Kathy/Jade but that part was just ridiculous. I rolled my eyes (rolled it!) I didn’t see that coming, and I never rolled my eyes but I did :(   I know it had everything to do with the hero and his love of comics but, no, it just didn’t work with me. And I love comics too.

I also had a moment in the story where I had to google up something after I read it towards the end of the book. I had to literately stop reading and pull up google to search up the answer. I wasn’t sure if that “thing” was possible in such a short time frame but I guess it can happen from what I found, so I guess it turned out all okay.

But other than those things everything was on point and fabulous! I loved both characters and they really compliments each other’s characteristics and wants and needs. They have great personalities and well you can’t help but just love them! I will be looking forward to more of this :)

Jude has spent the whole twenty three years of his life running. From what, he wasn’t quite sure. His mother tried to keep him safe; a low profile, a constant move on the horizon, a week’s pay always stashed away. She tried to instill in him that he was special somehow, though would never elaborate. He never felt different. He was so completely normal and vanilla that he wondered if it had all been in her head. But then she was murdered and all he saw was a running silhouette of a man as his mother said three final words to him. Three words that changed his whole being.
Never stop running…
Now he’s semi-settled into a big town. The college is huge and easy to blend into. It’s been three months since he had to move because ‘Biloxi’, as he calls the man who killed his mother, found him once more.
Then Marley, an eighteen year old girl who is as infuriating as she is blissfully ignorant of her gorgeousness, smashes into his car with hers. Then smashes into his life as he realizes that whatever it is he has that Biloxi wants, she has it, too. And now, they’re after them both.

It seemed like they had everything, but they didn’t have Jack.

Without question Spencer Hartley burns hot for his girlfriend, Rory, but his other desires are hidden down deep. He might blow things up for a living and climb mountains for kicks, but the scariest thing in his life is the truth about his sexuality. 

Jack Rothman works hard and plays dirty. After long, demanding days in his family's engineering firm, he indulges in the pleasures of silk restraints and fine wine. Lots of hot meaningless sex helps him forget that he’s suffocating, with no one to give him a reason to breathe.

When a catastrophic accident traps Spencer in a flooded subway tunnel with Jack, they need each other to survive. But something strong stirs down there in the darkness, and it’s more than their desperation to live. There’s a spark between them that’s impossible to ignore.

Rory Campbell would love to give Spencer the one thing he doesn’t have, the freedom to explore his secret desires. But how does that fit into her picture-perfect relationship? When Jack invites the couple to his sprawling Hamptons beach house, Rory realizes that she has secret desires of her own—the kind only Jack’s Dominant hand across her bare bottom can satisfy.

It’s not conventional, it’s not easy, but fate has brought the three of them together. Will real life tear them apart or can they let their special connection shine?

Review: Kissing the Maid of Honor by Robin Bielman

Kissing the Maid of HonorKissing the Maid of Honor by Robin Bielman

Released date May 20, 2013

Blurb:

Kissing her best friend’s brother never felt so right… Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend’s older brother. Positive he’s the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the frustrating—and frustratingly tempting—Luke.
As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for his rejection all those years ago? He didn’t see that coming. Sela inspires a passion he’s never known, and the more time they spend together, the more he craves her. But can he prove to the maid of honor he’s become a man of honor?

Review:

This was a great and sweet story to read. This was my first read of Ms. Bielman’s work and I’ll say it was amazing.

Sela Sullivan has had a crush on her best friend’s older brother and her own brother’s best friend, Luke, for years. After a humiliating event that took place during their high school years, Sela had vowed never to be in associations with Luke ever again, that is until she found out she was paired up with him as maid of honor and him as the best man at her best friend’s wedding.  Vowing to be on her best behavior her vow to stay away from Luke-emotionally- was going to be a piece of cake-or a disaster.

Luke had finally came back home after years away making a name for himself. When he first arrive back home he didn’t even notice that the beautiful young lady amidst his family was the same little sister of his best friend. Harboring his own secrets and demons it was hard for him to hide it from Sela’s knowing and trusting gaze. As unknown feelings began to cloud his responsibilities as best man and best friend, will Sela be the one to bring him home for good?

I was hooked from the start of the story till the end. Although towards the middle I got frustrated, but in a good way, and I loved the story.

I enjoyed seeing Sela try to keep herself sane by keeping her mind occupied with anything else but Luke. And her trying to be the best maid of honor her best friend will ever have even if it means she’ll have to spend time with Luke; she’ll suffer through it. I like her spunk and rational mind of keeping distance from Luke and always thinking of what’s best for her best friend and the wedding. She has a responsible tendency and caring factor that she carries with her throughout the story which I loved and worked very well with her personality.

Luke on the other hand was a great character. From the gecko he knew it was Sela in his parent’s kitchen he knew where he was to stand on their relationship, being best friends with her brother and all. But he couldn’t help but remember their shared kiss and the humiliating end he brought to it upon her in high school. He regretted humiliating her but he couldn’t bring himself to admit that she was an amazing kisser in front of her brother! And he knew he had to apologize before he had to leave again after the wedding. Yet every time he spent with Sela was like sun shine to his cloudy day and didn’t realized he missed home until Sela came into his life again.

This was a fun fast paced read and Robin did a great job taking you through their history and obstacles to get them to their HEA.
