First Look: Tiffany Reisz’s The Night Mark (March 28, 2017)

The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz
The Night Mark
Harlequin MIRA / March 28, 2017 / $15.99 print, $7.99 digital

She has nothing to live for in the present, but finds there’s something worth dying for in the past…

Tiffany Reisz transitions to women’s fiction tinged with magical realism in her newest release, The Night Mark, while still retaining everything readers love about her erotic fiction—banter, beautiful prose and deep, emotional relationships. (And sex. Of course, there is sex.)

An aching meditation on grief and loss, The Night Mark uses a lighthouse as both a touchstone and a catalyst when deeply unhappy Faye Barlow finds herself at an emotional crossroads. Trapped by a marriage to her dead husband’s best friend, mired in the memories of a blazing first love, she obtains a quickie divorce and flees to Beaufort, South Carolina to restart her career as a photographer. Bride Island — which Reisz fans will recognize from The Bourbon Thief, immediately fascinates her. As she digs into the history of the island and its decaying but dazzling lighthouse, she’s gut-punched by an old photograph. Carrick Morgan, a lighthouse keeper from the 1920s, looks exactly like her first husband, charming baseball player Will Fielding.

First Look: Christine Feehan’s Bound Together (March 21, 2017)

Bound Together by Christine Feehan

Christine Feehan
Bound Together (Sea Haven Series #6)
Berkley / March 21, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

Bound Together reads like a three act play. The first act, Viktor Prakenskii and his loyal band of warriors take down an ineffably evil motorcycle club from the inside. Viktor aka Czar tells his people to leave him to it, that they’ve walked into a trap. He doesn’t want them to follow him “straight to hell.”

Dmitry “Storm” Koval sighed heavily. “We all voted, Czar, just like always. Stop trying to carry us on your shoulders. We chose this life. All of us.”

Viktor clenched his teeth. That was a blatant lie. None of them had chosen their life. Not a single one. They all shared a common beginning. Each of them had parents murdered by a man named Kostya Sorbacov, because their parents hadn’t agreed with Sorbacov’s politics.

The children were tortured unmercifully but under Viktor’s leadership, they became a fearsome fighting unit. Bound Together opens at a climatic crossroads. For five years Viktor’s life has been devoted to stopping one man.

Evan Shackler-Gratsos was the number-one human trafficker in the world. Viktor knew he couldn’t stop everyone, but he was determined to take the man down. That decision had cost him five years of his life, possibly his marriage and the knowledge that the men he called brothers had made the choice to follow him into hell, just as they always had.

Viktor surrenders to the inevitable and the fight is on. Christine Feehan portrays the battle between good and evil in stark, poignant, excruciating detail. When it’s all over, Viktor decides there’s only one person who can give him peace, give him a reason to live—his estranged wife Blythe. In a wry aside, “ice-cold, expressionless” Reaper gives Czar some relationship advice, after Viktor makes the pronouncement that they “can get out of this life.”

First Look: Ruthie Knox’s Madly (March 14, 2017)

Madly by Ruthie Knox

And yet again, Knox’s heroine bumps into hers in a random bar.

First Look: Alyssa Cole’s An Extraordinary Union (March 28, 2017)

An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole

Alyssa Cole
An Extraordinary Union (The Loyal League #1)
Kensington / March 28, 2017 / $15.00 print, $9.99 digital

“They risked their hearts and their lives. For freedom. For justice. For love…”

Alyssa Cole’s An Extraordinary Union is the first in what promises to be a riveting series. In this novel, Elle Burns is a former slave turned spy for the Union during the Civil War. The year is 1862, the setting Virginia. Elle meets Malcolm McCall, a Scotsman turned Pinkerton detective. I read the first few chapters in small bites, absorbing details as Alyssa painted a scene rich with details of time, place, and societal norms. Once I hit the main spy story, however, there was no stopping.

Setting an interracial romance during the Civil War is a risky undertaking, but Alyssa has handled it with aplomb. Drawing on her experience writing about the Revolutionary War and the Civil Rights movement, she’s given us a story that reflects the complexities of being both a patriot and an agitator for change. Despite the government- and society-sanctioned abuses suffered by her race (and her own family) Elle is a woman who loves her country and is willing to give her life in service to making it a better place. I cannot think of a person more patriotic than she, and knowing that the character is based on a real woman made me read parts of the story with tears in my eyes. (I cheated and read the Author’s Note before the rest of the book.) Elle is my new favorite heroine. She has an eidetic memory, but she’s also capable of making connections and acting in roles that others wouldn’t stand.

First Look: Jess Michaels’ The Daring Duke (March 14, 2017)

The Daring Duke by Jess Michaels

Jess Michaels
The Daring Duke (1797 Club Series #1)
Jess Michaels / March 14, 2017 / $13.99 print, $3.99 digital 

I have a confession. Historical romance just might be my favorite sub-genre of romance. I know, don’t tell my alter-ego who writes Contemporary and is dabbling with Young Adult Fantasy. So, any opportunity to discover a new author (new to me, maybe not new to others), I will jump at the chance. I was elated I had the opportunity to review The Daring Duke by Jess Michaels. To sum up in less than five words? She is the bomb!

The Daring Duke is the first in a ten book series (and you’ll have to suspend reality for a moment) about ten dukes who form a club while still in school. I’m all about suspending reality because this means they’ll be nine more to come. If the subsequent stories are anything like the first, it’ll be a welcomed reading addiction.

James Rylon, heir to the dukedom of Abernathe, is the leader among these ten young teens. At age fourteen, he and his two best friends form the 1797 Club, named after the year of its creation. Future dukes from his year in school, and a few below, make up this ten-member exclusive club.

First Look: Patricia Briggs’ Silence Fallen (March 7, 2017)

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Patricia Briggs
Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson Series #10)
Ace / March 7, 2017 / $27.00 print, $13.99 digital 

Patricia Briggs takes readers on a darkly humorous trip of a lifetime in her tenth Mercy Thompson series installment when Mercy is kidnapped and taken overseas by an overly curious vampire in Silence Fallen. Mercy finds her ability to communicate with Adam and the pack almost completely cut off but using her wits and skills she engineers an escape and heads out into the unknown. Looking to stay alive long enough for help to arrive, she finds herself landing on trouble’s doorstep. Again.

“Sometimes in the last few years, I had longed to be alone. Just for an hour or two. And here I was. Alone. Sometimes getting your wish really sucks.”

Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorite urban fantasy series to date due to its remarkable heroine, delicious romance, and the relatable yet ever changing world. Though this version of Seattle is saturated with the supernaturals, Briggs’ effortlessly uses her readers’ own humanity and experiences to help bridge her world with ours. Racism, bigotry, jealousy, anger, sorrow etc...are all powerful sentiments that Briggs’ uses to fuel her stories. Sentiments that readers are easily able to empathize and connect with from all viewpoints; not just with the heroes but also those we consider the villains.

First Look: Kit Rocha’s Ashwin (March 7, 2017)

Ashwin by Kita Rocha

Kit Rocha
Ashwin (Gideon's Riders Series #1)
Kit Rocha / March 7, 2017 / $14.99 print, $4.99 digital

The start of a new series is a tricky thing. It’s not any easier when it’s the extension of a wildly popular, erotic romance series whose rabid super fans are ready and eager to consume every new volume. How do you satisfy the unique elements of a new series while, at the same time, remaining true to the loyal readers who have brought you this far? How do you attract new readers to a dystopian, post-apocalyptic series without losing those same dedicated fans?

Well, fear not. Ashwin kicks off the new Kit Rocha series, Gideon's Riders, and boy, howdy, does it not disappoint.

Ashwin’s core story is about the long germinating relationship between the deadly Makhai soldier, Lieutenant Ashwin Malhotra, and the extremely skilled Doctor Kora Bellamy.

Kora and Ashwin have been dancing around the fringes of the O’Kane stories since Beyond Temptation. Ashwin’s back story is brutal and murky. Designed since before birth to be the perfect, emotionless soldier, he has no toolbox by which to deal with emotions when and if they arise within him. He is wired to purge any and all emotion so that they don’t compromise either his mission or his loyalty. Makai soldiers are also at danger of fixating on a person, taking obsession to perilous extremes, that can end in death for both the soldier and the object of their obsession. Sometimes, these deaths are orchestrated by the military base commanders. Sometimes, they’re the tragic result of the relationship.

First Look: Kristen Ashley’s The Deep End (March 7, 2017)

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley
The Deep End (Honey Series #1)
St. Martin's Griffin / March 7, 2017 / $15.99 print, $3.99 digital

If you never have read a Kristen Ashley book, this quick note is for you about her books—otherwise, you can skip to the review.  She is the queen of writing the strongest, most powerful, and HOTTEST Alpha males.  Her style of writing is direct and straight to the point.

With that said, when I heard that this author was releasing an erotic book about a hero that is an alpha sub, I got concerned because I had never heard of an alpha being a submissive. It just doesn’t even sound right—like it’s an oxymoronic statement.  Let me be real; I haven’t read a book I didn’t like that she wrote, and I enjoy her alpha male hero in her books and the story she spins around them, but I have to say I was very skeptical on how she was going to make this work.  I’m used to powering my way through her books because of a funny scene or a one line statement from the hero that makes your heart squeeze.  Her her alpha males' one-liners are legendary, which drove me to really want to find out the direction of a story. I dove in praying that this story would be believable and have the same effect on me that her other books do. 

When I first started reading the book, I got a firm layout of where I was and what was going on in The Honey club (BDSM), who the characters were, their personality traits and why they were there.  So far, the first three chapters just covered the bases of this world but not the real story to come.  So, I powered through and hoped that she could convince me how this Alpha/Sub thing was going to work.

First Look: Kerrelyn Sparks’ How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (March 7, 2017)

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

Kerrelyn Sparks
How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (Embraced Series #1)
St. Martin's Press / March 7, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

Fans of Kerrelyn Sparks who have been mourning the loss of Ms. Sparks’ literary wit for the last year can finally rejoice.  In the same style as The Princess Bride, Kerrelyn has created an entire new world for us to savor with all of the marvelous characters and sparkling humor we have come to expect.

She has created a world where the night sky shines with the light of twin moons.  Here there are five kingdoms and the four that share borders are constantly at war.   But no matter which kingdom you hail from, any children born on a night where the two moons are intertwined in the sky are born Embraced.  Those who are Embraced are born with a special ability and are much feared in all the kingdoms.  How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days gives us our first introduction to those who are Embraced. 

The current King of Eberon is so greedy to own all the land in his Kingdom that he sets nearly impossible goals for this Lords and failure to succeed at the King’s demand can be a death sentence for you and your family.  And his demands on his own family is even harsher.  Leofric of Benwick is the Lord Proctor of the Realm tasked with keeping their enemies from crossing the borders.   Leo knows that he was given this position since the King hopes that Leo will be killed in a skirmish with their enemies which is a much simpler way to get rid of a possible successor to his throne then simply killing Leo outright.  Not that he could kill Leo in a fair fight.

Stormchaser by Cherry Adair

Cherry Adair
Stormchaser (Cutter Cay Series #4)
St. Martin's Press / March 7, 2017 / $7.99 print & digital

I’ve been a Cherry Adair fan since Kiss and Tell seventeen years ago. She’s one of the OG romantic suspense authors who drew me into the genre and got me addicted to the breathtaking notion of falling in love while running for your life.

And warmer temperatures on the horizon mean Adair’s latest installment of the Cutter Cay series, Stormchaser, is hitting the shelves at the exact right time. Fans of Jacques Cousteau and his magical underwater world will love this story!

We meet Dr. Callie West, a marine archaeologist hired by Jonah Cutter to work with his team aboard the Stormchaser on a salvage off the shores of Greece. From the get-go, she assumes Jonah is just another “modern-day treasure hunter” like the rest of his family. She also assumes she’s only going to be working on the Ji Li. Boy is she wrong on both fronts.

Every Little Thing by Samantha Young

Samantha Young
Every Little Thing (Hart's Boardwalk #2)
Berkley / March 7, 2017 / $15.00 print, $5.99 digital

Enemies to lovers is one of the most electric tropes in romance.  There are no two people on the planet who are trying their utmost not to fall in love.  But never have two E2L’s wanted a round of hot, angry sex more desperately than in Samantha Young’s newest novel, Every Little Thing.

Bailey Hartwell, owner of the quaint bed and breakfast, didn’t believe there was any place on the boardwalk for the slick hotel and conference center that NYC hotelier, Vaughn Tremaine, was planning on putting up.  So for three years she has been the antagonistic thorn in his side.  First, she tried to keep the City Council from approving his plans.  Then as the building went up and it wasn’t the eyesore she feared, Bailey kept provoking him mostly out of the desire to keep the handsome and charming man from her thoughts, especially when he never chose never to be nice to her.

First Look: Colleen Oakley’s Close Enough to Touch (March 7, 2017)

Close Enough to Touch by Colleen Oakley

Gah, I loved everything about Close Enough to Touch—though I have to admit—I went into reading it with a bit of skepticism. Because how can a woman who has an allergy to other humans ever form a romantic attachment? Well, I will never question Colleen Oakley’s writing abilities again. The story unfolds so beautifully. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, I groaned in frustration, then I swooned again.

Jubilee Jenkins has an extremely rare disease where she essentially is allergic to other humans. A Type IV Contact Dermatitis to foreign skin cells. So is this like bubble-boy? Nope. Totally different. Yet the consequences of her having skin contact is life threatening. Hence, after an event her senior year nearly kills her, Jubilee hermits herself in her home for ten years. Until she’s forced to interact with the outside world again and get a job.

Sinful Scottish Laird by Julia London

Julia London
Sinful Scottish Laird (The Highland Grooms #2)
HQN Books / February 28, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

Sinful Scottish Laird is the second installment in Julia London’s historical Highland Grooms series but is structured to be comfortably read as a standalone. This sensual, heartfelt, and amusing story brings together a young widow who is determined to live her life on her own terms and a conflicted Scotsman whose former dealings with the English has left a bad taste in his mouth.

Lady Chatwick (Daisy Bristol) dutifully married the man her parents choose for her despite loving another. Though her husband was much older, she grew to care deeply for him, staying faithful and by his side when he contracted an illness that confined him to bed. Having developed an affectionate relationship with him, she was shocked when he told her that she would have to remarry within three years of his death or their son would forfeit his inheritance.

When you are the last remaining single brother in a close family like the Kellys, all your happily married sibling are always looking to help you out. But Joe Kelly is content to remain blissfully unattached, even if he surrounded by lovebirds. The idea of spending your whole life focused on one person is insane. Right?

Maya Banks bring us the downfall of the last bachelor standing, Joe Kelly, in Brighter than the Sun. Joe has happily sat back and watched over the last few years as his brothers fell, one by one, for their wives. He has been quite content with life while they started families of their own. And he is very, very certain that he has no interest in taking the fall himself.  He is quite comfortable in his life as a confirmed bachelor.  That is why watching him fall just as hard as any of his brothers is so much fun.

The Hot One by Lauren Blakely

Lauren Blakely
The Hot One
Lauren Blakely / February 28, 2017 / $10.99 print, $3.99 digital

At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back. 

But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
He's the one who got away...
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping at my job, showing off his rock hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not...? 
He's the one I've tried like hell to forget but just can't. Maybe I'm cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's a new man? I won't fall for him again. 

But how do you resist the hot one...

Calling all reunion romance lovers. The Hot One is the book for you. 

​We've met both Tyler and Delaney in previous books. Tyler has been a recurring character in Lauren Blakely's other novels, and we met Delaney in The Only One. ​

I don't often say this but ... the blurb is misleading.

​ Tyler isn't so much a new man as the man he's always been. He's matured and undergone personal growth as humans are wont to do, but he was a good guy, and he still is a good guy. In a way, Delaney​ is the one who has to undergo the most change in The Hot One

​In the case of this romance, they're both hot. Ridiculously perfect, well established New Yorkers, living the dream. Tyler is a hotshot entertainment lawyer, and Delaney owns her own business in the city. They met at Brown, both thinking they'd be lawyers. (I know, I know, if you're at all in law as well, just ... imagine my expression right now. I read a book where it talks about the characters being pre-law. I had to suspend disbelief for some of the “law stuff” but it wasn't a deal breaker here.) Tyler obviously continued down that path, but Delaney became a massage therapist. They both excel in their fields. And speaking of hot, the book is too. Tyler and Delaney meshed sexually in college, and it's even more now.

Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost

Jeaniene Frost
Into the Fire (Night Prince #4)
Avon / February 28, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

In the explosive finale to New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series, Vlad is in danger of losing his bride to an enemy whose powers might prove greater than the Prince of Vampire’s…. 

In the wrong hands, love can be a deadly weapon.

For nearly six hundred years, Vlad Tepesh cared for nothing, so he had nothing to lose. His brutal reputation ensured that all but the most foolhardy stayed away. Now falling in love with Leila has put him at the mercy of his passions. And one adversary has found a devastating way to use Vlad’s new bride against him.

A powerful spell links Leila to the necromancer Mircea. If he suffers or dies, so does she. Magic is forbidden to vampires, so Vlad and Leila enlist an unlikely guide as they search for a way to break the spell. But an ancient enemy lies in wait, capable of turning Vlad and Leila’s closest friends against them…and finally tearing the lovers apart forever.

There are so many elements I look forward to in a Jeaniene Frost novel.

A heroine to be the heartbeat of the book and keep its pace.

A hero who is undeniably devoted and worthy.

A well-rounded ensemble cast that I enjoy butting in instead of grumbling at time away from the OTP.

Into the Fire achieves all of these, but manages to accomplish a few bonuses.

A Lady's Code of Misconduct by Meredith Duran

Meredith Duran
A Lady’s Code of Misconduct (Rules for the Reckless #5)
Pocket Books / February 28, 2017 / $7.99 print, $6.99 digital

Trapped in the countryside, facing an unwanted marriage and the theft of her fortune, Jane Mason is done behaving nicely. To win her freedom, she’ll strike a deal with the most dangerous man she knows—a rising star in politics, whose dark good looks mask an even darker heart.

The bitter past has taught Crispin Burke to trust no one. He’ll gladly help a lovely young heiress, provided she pays a price. Yet when a single mistake shatters his life, it is Jane who holds the key to his salvation. And in a world that no longer makes sense, Crispin slowly realizes that she may be the only thing worth fighting for...

Meredith Duran’s latest is an amnesia story, which is a harder trope to find these days. Amnesia plotlines used to be a dime a dozen, but they became such a romance cliché that they have become rare in the last decade or so. A Lady’s Code of Misconduct is a very good amnesia story and reminds me why these storylines were so popular and should be again when in the hands of a gifted storyteller like Duran.

Crispin Burke is not a nice man. In fact, he’s a horrible man. He has spent years bribing, blackmailing and backstabbing his fellow Members of Parliament in his quest to become Prime Minister, so pressuring a young woman in dire straits to spy for him is child’s play.

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.
