First Look: Lisa Marie Perry’s Sin For Me (February 21, 2017)

Sin for Me by Lisa Marie Perry

If you love FOX’s sudsy Empire, then Lisa Marie Perry’s sizzling Sin For Me is a must-read! The twisted, drama-soaked first book in the Devil’s Music duology is set amidst the Atlanta music scene, at a record label that’s growing new talent and age-old feuds. Dangerous wild-child Delilah Bishop, voted out of her family’s company by her three best friends, Joshua Drake, Emma Toledo and Chelsea Coin, wants back in at any cost. She’ll burn things down (literally), wreck marriages — and even throw her own brother, songwriter Dante Bishop, under the bus to get what she wants. But what Delilah doesn’t realize is that Devil’s Music holds its own allure for Dante — in the form of chief operating officer Chelsea, the woman who betrayed him and still enthralls him.      

Her smile could command his heartbeat. Her touch could freeze his mind and light his body on fire. Her pussy was immortalized in the hip-hop/R&B song “In You,” which remained unfinished and unsung, confined to the pages of an old notebook.

Funny how his church’s priest had never said that evil could be beautiful, could sound like the most unforgettable melody, could feel so damn good wrapped around you.

Evil was Chelsea, a woman who’d turned his love against him, betrayed everyone in her way, and preyed on a friend’s mental instability.

Are You a Betty or a Veronica?: The Riverdale Reading List!

 Betty or Veronica? Betty vs Veronica- The Riverdale Reading List!

By now you may have heard…Archie Andrews and his pals from the Riverdale comics are back!! And starring in a brand new, dark, gritty, sexual version on the CW Network. As a huge fan of the comics and now hopelessly addicted to the show after just one amazing episode, I’ve always wondered who Archie might end up: Betty, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, sweet, supportive, smart girl next door, or Veronica, the dark-haired, dark-eyed, sassy yet classy, city girl who falls hard for our favorite ginger haired hero.

I love that both girls are truly nice, as far as how they treat each other and Archie. It’s a real love triangle. I still can’t decide who I’m rooting for: the girl who’s always dreamed of being with Archie and has always supported him and his dreams, or the girl who’s lost her money, her friends and now is having to start over and falls for the charming Archie because he’s so different from her old life.

As a tribute to the exciting debut of Riverdale, I’m giving you the ultimate Betty vs Veronica book list that way you can read each week to satisfy your hunger for more Riverdale until the next episode airs.

[How 'bout a little Betty and Veronica?]

Kristen Ashley Excerpt: The Deep End

Kristen Ashley

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

Enter a decadent sensual world where gorgeous alpha males are committed to fulfilling a woman's every desire…

Olivier isn’t sure what he’s gotten himself into when he joins the Honey Club, only that a dark part of him hungers for the lifestyle offered by this exclusive club. Here, no boundary will be left untested…and one's deepest fantasies will become an exquisite reality.

When Amélie invites Olivier to surrender, she gives the alpha submissive what he craves. Soon they both find themselves falling harder than they ever anticipated—but as their connection deepens, the truth about Olivier’s past could destroy everything…

Get a sneak peek at Kristen Ashley's The Deep End (available March 7, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

One: There Could Only Be One

Amélie

Amélie sat in the semicircle booth at the back of the club, her lips to the rim of her champagne glass, her eyes to the bodies moving through the large space in front of her, her mind wondering when it had happened.

Seven years.

For seven years, as a day passed that she knew at the end of it she would be going to the club, she felt a mild but persistent anticipation.

This, as she’d make her preparations to go, she’d allow to build into excitement.

First Look: Lisa Kleypas’ Devil in Spring (February 21, 2017)

Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Lisa Kleypas
Devil in Spring (Ravenels #3)
Avon / February 21, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

Is there a book that is more eagerly anticipated by the romance community than Lisa Kleypas’s Devil in Spring? Why is that? The beloved protagonists of Devil in Winter, Evangeline and Sebastian, are now the Duke and Duchess of Kingston and they do a star turn as preternaturally youthful and passionate parents, now grandparents. Their oldest son Gabriel, the new Lord St. Vincent, inadvertently gets into a serious scrape with Lady Pandora Ravenel, the season’s most reluctant debutant. Pandora is her generation’s wallflower, much more interested in her budding board games business than looking for a husband at a ball. Gabriel has a very satisfying relationship with a sophisticated married lady. Marriage is the last thing on the mind of either Gabriel or Pandora. Shades of Georgette Heyer’s Devil’s Cub, no?

Inevitably the news of his oldest son’s indiscretion brings Sebastian to town. Over a game of pool at Jenner’s, Sebastian tells Gabriel that if need be, they’ll “buy a husband for her,” since Gabriel seems to believe that his only honorable option is to marry Pandora. Why then doesn’t Gabriel leap at the opportunity to avoid “a lifetime shackled to a girl,” that he seemingly can’t abide? That question certainly intrigues Sebastian, particularly after Gabriel pronounces Pandora “bloody ravishing.”

[That's a high compliment indeed!]

Beth Kery’s Make Me Is Part Erotic Romance, Part Psychological Thriller!

Make Me by Beth Kery

Harper McFadden established herself as an investigative journalist by being both compassionate and fearless.

After tragedy strikes her family, she moves to the shores of Lake Tahoe to find some peace. But when mysterious software mogul Jacob Latimer enters her life, her thoughts turn from her own healing to an insatiable desire to get closer to him... No one knows what secrets lurk in the past of Jacob Latimer. He built his corporation from nothing, but rumors abound about his mysterious rise to power. Harper is the last person he should let into his life. She could expose the truth about his origins. But Jacob knows things about Harper’s past that draw him in. He wants nothing more than to make her his—and Jacob is a man who always gets what he wants...

Make Me was published as a serial, and I'm super excited that this is now available in book form. (*whispers* I'm not the biggest fan of serials—too impatient, I like reading stories all in one go.) I loved Beth Kery's Make Me when it first came out, and re-reading it for the “compilation” release just brought that home. The end just made me want to hug something - which is saying a lot.

Rachel Grant’s New Flashpoint Series Is Off with a Bang

Tinderbox by Rachel Grant

Reading Rachel Grant’s books is like being in the middle of an Indiana Jones movie. Only, in her stories Indy is a heroine, and Miriam is a soldier. Since Grant, herself, is an archaeologist, her plots always include badass science—but they also weave in exotic settings and sexy suspense. And in this new Flashpoint series, she incorporates even more of a healthy dose of adventure.

In Tinderbox, we meet Dr. Morgan Adler and Master Sergeant Pax Blanchard. Morgan’s work on a dig in the Djibutian dessert is already dangerous enough, just by geopolitical standards; but when you add in her desperate race from a dig to the closest military base … with a stolen artifact in the trunk … all bets are off. Poor Pax, acting on a tip-off about an en route with a “message” from said Warlord, has no choice but to detain Morgan. Out in the field, choices are made quickly or hesitation can mean death—whether the choice is being made by an archaeologist or a soldier.

First Look: Megan Frampton’s My Fair Duchess (February 28, 2017)

My Fair Duchess by Megan Frampton

Megan Frampton
My Fair Duchess (Dukes Behaving Badly #5)
Avon / February 28, 2017 / $7.99 print, $5.99 digital

Fun Fact: Megan Frampton is the former community manager of Heroes and Heartbreakers—we now love being able to talk about her historical romances!

As you might suspect, My Fair Duchess, the latest in Megan Frampton’s Dukes Behaving Badly series is a retelling of the classic My Fair Lady. Yes, there’s a makeover and a reluctant man overseeing the education of the plucky young lady. The real hook, however, is an inversion of the governess-artistocrat trope. I loved it.

Our heroine, the newly-minted Duchess of Blakesley, is an anomaly. She becomes a duchess due to an old forgotten ruling in her family line that allows any direct heir to inherit, not just the most closely related male. A note at the beginning of the novel should clear this up for you in case you are thinking “oh come on, that’s not a thing!” (It was a thing in one family, one time.) Having been raised by servants in the country while her father allows the duchy to languish, Genevieve is woefully unprepared for the role. She needs a new wardrobe, training in estate management, an entire new staff, and the confidence to pull off the demeanor expected of a duchess.

Candis Terry Excerpt: Perfect for You

Candis Terry

Perfect for You by Candis Terry

Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll do what it takes to protect their legacy—but what happens when love gets in the way?

Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately, though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be . . .

What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love . . .

Get a sneak peek at Candis Terry's Perfect for You (available February 28, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

He’d been denied many things in his life. Forbidding himself at least a taste of Brooke was going to be like sitting in front of a decadent slice of chocolate cake with a shark cage between them.

Just before he swung the Infiniti onto the freeway onramp, she said, “Pull over.”

“What?”

“Right there.” She pointed to yet another gas station.

Against his better judgment—because today he seemed to be minus a few marbles—he complied. “Did you forget something?”

What Is the Difference Between a Rake and a Rogue?

Rake or Rogue?

If you’ve ever walked down the aisle of a bookstore in the romance section you’ve no doubt scene one or two words that consistently jump out at you when you peruse the historical romance titles. Rake and Rogue seem to be the most popular and possible the most misused.

So what do the words Rake and Rogue actually mean when it comes to historical romance books? I’m going to break it down for you!

So what is a Rake (also known as a Rakehell?)? A rake, short for rakehell (analogous to “hellraiser”), is a historic term applied to a man who is habituated to immoral conduct, particularly womanizing. Often, a rake was also prodigal, wasting his (usually inherited) fortune on gambling, wine, women, and song, and incurring lavish debts in the process. Comparable terms are “libertine” and “debauchee.” The term rakehell itself comes from the idea that these men are so bad or wicked that they will be having their feet raked over the coals in hell, hence Rakehell. So a basic definition for a rake is that he’s a seducer and a charmer.

So what then is a Rogue? It seems to have a far more negative connation with definitions ranging from: vagrant, tramp, a dishonest or worthless person, or a mischievous person. A basic definition for a rogue within a romance novels is that a rogue is a wild card, a man who is really unpredictable and possible dangerous (but not to the heroine in a bad way)

How Do You Like Your Retellings: Close to the Source or Just Inspired by It?

Retellings and reimaginings can be tough. You're taking a pre-established story line and making it your own. Personally, I love a Beauty and the Beast reimagining or a Pride and Prejudice. However, how the retelling is handled—and how much the reader likes it—can depend on how close to the source material the retelling is. 

Can something be too close to the source material? Do you like it when a retelling is just inpired by the source material and do you prefer and beat-by-beat retelling?
