Author Bio:


I have loved books and romance novels since I was in high school. The happy endings and endless possibilities are alluring and addictive. I currently reside in Texas and when I am not thinking up my next bad-boy character I am working in the community rescuing dogs while being a wife and mother to my wonderful family.

Lettuce, detergent, apple juice, sugar...oh, and some more of those yummy oatmeal cookies the deli makes fresh every morning. I also need to remember to stop off and drop off my dry cleaning.

"Oh baby, you feel so good." Gary moans.

Pulled out of my thoughts and mental to-do-list, I am back in the miserable present. I add in a quick, " too," and another fake moan for good measure.  At least one of us seems to be enjoying themselves.

I wish Gary would hurry up and finish so he can roll off of me and pass out. I am surprised that he has managed to make it past his usual five minutes of rutting on me without blowing his load yet.  How did my life get so pathetic? My friends talk about their sex lives all the time and how erotic and hot they are. I have never experienced that.

Gary was my first. My first real passionate kiss, my first serious boyfriend, my first orgasm from a guy (might not have been earth shattering, but it was still my first), and my first love. He was the handsome quarter back of our high school football team and I was ecstatic that out of all the girls following him around, he chose me. Even back then I knew we would be together forever. He was sweet, good looking, and considered a major catch. Lord, what girl in her right mind would not want a tall, built, athletic man with wavy brown hair and dark brown eyes to match?

We finished high school, joined the same college not far from home, and moved into our first apartment together right after graduation, a little over a year ago. I always thought sex was nice and my friends were just sluts who got off on things most normal girls did not enjoy. Normal girls like me. I want to be a slut who enjoys those things. Anything has to be better than making mental to-do-lists while a man sweats all over you and grunts like a pig.

Half the time I forget he is even doing anything, until I hear that stupid squeal he does at the end when he shoots his wad. That is when I remember to ooh and ahh before turning over and falling asleep. I want more. I want what my friends have. Hell, I want an orgasm from a man that makes me see stars, forget my name, and leaves me limp like a worn out doll.

"Oh yeah, that is it...Ahhhhhhh." Gary squeals and his body tenses right before collapsing on top of me.  I kiss his shoulder and tell him the all too familiar lie that he was amazing, before rolling to my side and pulling my cotton nightgown back over my body. I hide the single tear that escapes my watery eyes before he has a chance to notice that I am upset.

I am not even sure if anyone is to blame for the lack of zest between us. I tried a few times to spice things up between us before with lingerie, candles, and a few new sex moves I heard my best friends talking about, but it didn't help. Maybe I am the problem. Sometimes I feel like I might be broken. 

At only twenty-four I cannot imagine going the rest of my life like this. If it was not for my special pink vibrator I would have probably already shriveled up and died from lack of orgasms. I wonder if anyone could really die from never getting off?

Hearing Gary come back in the room and climb into bed after throwing away the condom, I slowly count to twenty. By the time I reach sixteen I already hear the soft sounds of his snoring that lets me know he is out for the night. He doesn't deserve my lies. He deserves a woman that actually enjoys his caresses and tender love making.

I really can't do this anymore. Closing my eyes I breathe a sigh of contentment. Come tomorrow I am going to leave. No more faking orgasms. The next time I moan for a man it will be because he actually did something to earn it. Gary will be pissed at first, but he will thank me later in life. I am doing this as much for him as for me. He deserves to be truly happy as much as I do.

A sliver of excitement mixed with fear stirs in my belly. Gary is all I have ever known and I have never lived on my own before. Even in college I lived with my girlfriends. My mental to-do-list has a whole new set of things added onto it as I map out my day. I smile as I succumb to sleep realizing that for once in my life I have a chance to live and be that girl I never dared to be.

Blog Tour: Hell’s Knights (The MC Sinners #1) Heaven’s Sinners (The MC Sinners #2) by Bella Jewel

Hell’s Knights (The MC Sinners #1)
Heaven’s Sinners (The MC Sinners #2)
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Biker Erotica
Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets


Sex. Who really knows sex?
I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details,
how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?
I thought I knew sex.
I've had sex. Heck,
I've felt lust.
Once, I've even felt love.
I thought I knew exactly what sex was.
Until I met Cade.
He's the meaning of sex.
He's a biker.
He's dangerous.
He's powerful.
He's dominant.
He wants me.
My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know.
But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful,
heart wrenching story most people have to tell.

It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

“I hate being the child that isn’t wanted. It’s a shitty feeling to have no one in the world that wants to love you. Not one, single person.”

That was Addison’s life, a life she lived with her drug-addicted whore of a mother.  photo ca0efbe3-92d2-4e59-9723-343a756db32a_zps99f4212b.jpg She knew nothing else, raped by Jasper her mother’s pimp over a span of many

years, she accepted it,
it’s how she survived until that one day, the day her mother died. With nowhere else to go, she contacts her father a man hasn’t seen in years and everything is about to change.

Her father, Jackson (Jacks) is the President of the MC Hell’s Knight’s. I was sucked into this book from the prologue, chapter after chapter I found myself turning the pages faster and faster, I fell hard and fast for Cade Duke, dark messy hair, green eyes and the clubs VP, he has eyes and a hard on for Addison.
I loved the banter and angst between Cade and Addie; he’s a hard ass biker who doesn’t take any shit and demands total control and Addie just found her freedom after years of abuse and won’t be ordered around

Angst bears the most delicious and amazing sex Addie has ever experienced and Cade needs to claim
her as his own.

I like how the author slowly meshed the father/daughter relationship together and hearing his side of what happened between him and her mother. We are introduced to Spike, a biker from a rival MC who holds a grudge against Cade he’s another hard ass whose story will tear your heart out.

Life seems to be getting better for Addie only she has a secret she’s not telling, one that could lead her back into the hands of her mother’s pimp. “Not all stories have to be told, you know, sometimes…sometimes they are better left closed” I can’t wait to read Spike’s story in Heaven’s

Spike knows tragedy, he knows that feelings are better left hidden.
He refuses to put his heart out there again, it's a pain he's not willing
 to ever let himself feel.
He's got a mission.
He's got a goal.
 Nothing is going to get in his way.
He will seek his revenge.
But then there's Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife.
She's beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his
life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won't hear of it, and
Ciara refuses to give up.

Who will win the battle of wills?

Hopefully you have already read Hell’s Knights where we were introduced to Spike and Ciara, if not that’s okay you can read this as a stand-alone. Spike is the President of the Heaven’s Sinners MC Club and Ciara is his deceased wife’s (Cheyenne) sister. They had a past before he married Cheyenne one of friendship only both wanted more but never shared their feelings out of fear of losing the friendship. After Cheyenne’s death blame was placed, feelings were hurt and guilt buried itself deep inside both Spike and Ciara. Now brought back together the two struggles with the hurt and pain each endured. First, let me tell you about Spike, muscular, tattooed, and sexy as hell

and his cock barbells have spike ends that the “ladies” pull off with their teeth!

He loves to f**k and gets off on watching others while they f**k/suck!
Oh yeah, he’s my man.
Ciara is cocky and strong willed, she wants/needs Spike’s forgiveness and she won’t give up until she gets it. She grew up in the shadow of her sister and that pain is still raw. I sat on the sidelines cheering that these two would set aside the past and move forward, I wanted them to be together. They were like a pot of boiling water with the steam needing

Title - The Perfect Distraction (Book #1)
Author - Melissa Rolka
Genre - New Adult
Release Date - October 1, 2013
Hosted by

Love Between the Sheets


Book Trailer

When Katherine “Kate” leaves for her freshmen year at college, a grounded and stable piece of her is missing. She pushes away the ghosts of her past, determined to start her college life single, carefree and distracted. Throughout high school Kate was reserved and shy, with little experience. Now, on her own, with little holding her back, Kate is ready to branch out. She bonds with a tight knit group of friends and even starts casually dating. What starts out as innocent flirting on the tennis courts slowly turns into a friendship and eventually something more complex. Reed comes into her life giving her the distraction she craves more than anything; but is she ready to give her heart away so easily? Things get complicated when Kate’s ex-boyfriend and first love continues to pursue her. Kyle deeply regrets breaking her heart when he left for college the year before and is now on a mission to reclaim her. Kyle’s persistence and relentlessness is nothing short of obsessive. He will stop at nothing to win her back and prove his love. Kate finds herself torn between her past and the unknown of the future. Her determination to stay distracted may just be her downfall or the beginning of something new and wonderful.  
Once we reach the bottom of the stairs, I gain my confidence and take his hand leading him to the dance floor. “Let’s dance!” I don’t give him time to respond, nor do I stop to look at his face to see his expression. Instantly, Maggie spots me and her eyes light up like a deer in headlights. I smile and threw my head back as I grab onto Reed. I start swaying my hips and moving provocatively to Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado. The look on his face is priceless. “You don’t fool me, little girl,” he whispers in my ear as he moves my hair to the side. Goosebumps travel all the way down my neck and down my spine. Then he moves his hands to my waist and turns me with my back to his front. This reminds me of last night in my dorm room. Maggie moves closer and mouths to me “bad girl”. I throw my head back into the crook of his neck and giggle. Kelly and Derek are still dancing nearby. I can’t read the look Derek is giving me, but then I see him gaze at Kelly with amusement. I think he may be surprised to see me with Reed again. In this moment I feel at ease and carefree. I turn back around and quickly become aware that Reed is in a sandwich. Luckily it is just Quinn dancing behind him and when I look at her she winks at me. Soon after she is pulled by her hips to Matt’s grinding moves. The music turns to a slower Cold Play song and Reed pulls me closer to him. He starts to sway us softly. I dare myself to look up and when I do his eyes look heated and deeper, almost sapphire. Nervously, I bite down on my bottom corner of my lip. Reed runs his hands up to my cheeks and kisses me teasingly slow while lightly sucking on my bottom lip. It feels so good to be like this with him and I am wishing we were back upstairs in the bathroom or back in his room. Moving his head into the crook of my neck he plants sweet kisses just under my ear. As I feel myself getting lost in this moment, I am suddenly broken from it when someone grabs at my shoulder pulling me out of Reed’s arms and turns me around. With alcohol swimming in me I lose my balance, but I immediately notice the mixed green and hazel eyes that I had once found so loving. Reed shifts behind me and moves his hands protectively around my waist. The anxiety I had been feeling earlier quickly consumes me. I stare in disbelief and fear.   heartdividerPost

I dissolved into the seat of his amazing car. A low moan escaped my lips but Killian just showed his dimples and buckled me in. I wondered what he’d do if I pulled him tightly against me and sniffed… for an hour or two.
He opened his door and folded into the seat with absolute grace regardless of his size.
“Ah hell,” he muttered and turned my way. Unlatching my seatbelt, he pulled me in for the most mouthwatering kiss I’d ever had.
His lips, soft but firm, molded to mine. His tongue ran over my teeth, tasted, dipped deeper, and then plunged. He effortlessly slid out the elastic holding my hair before spreading his fingers to either side of my scalp. The kiss intensified and Killian made promises for the night ahead with his lips.
He tasted so damn good.
When he pulled back, I actually whimpered and smiled at the low rumbling growl that came from Killian’s throat. He took my lower lip between his teeth and pulled slightly before letting go. He put distance between us leaving me bereft.
“We’ll eat at my house.” He kissed my forehead, reached over, grabbed the seatbelt, and fastened me in again. My hands went to my hair as I looked around for the hair tie.
“Leave it.”
I stopped my search but couldn’t help running my fingers through the mussed tangles. Killian’s hand captured mine. “No.” He released my fingers just as fast as he verbalized the one word.
I wasn’t a pushover, didn’t have much experience with guys, but I had some. I should have argued, straightened my hair anyway, or even voiced some sort of displeasure. An electrically charged pulse shot straight to the junction of my thighs, and there I went and tried to stain his car’s upholstery.
I kept my mouth shut.

Blog Tour: Surrender to Fate by Jacelyn Rye

Title:   Surrender to Fate (Fate’s Path #1)
Author:  Jacelyn Rye
Genre:   New Adult Romance 18+
Publication Date:  September 17, 2013
Cover Designed By:  Damonza 
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.


Some say fate holds the cards. But what if love deals the hand? No love goes untested. Ever. Indeed, true love is left to prove itself. And that is exactly where fate steps in to play the game.

For William and Sarah, that game begins with growing up, in the unspoiled mountains of Colorado. In a time and space as clear as the Rocky Mountain skies above, these young souls together learn about life, what matters most, what endures, what doesn’t, and about love. Innocent young love moves ever so surely toward lives they both can picture, lives spent loving each other in a place they know so well and cherish.

Will and Sarah are ecstatically swept away in the swells of new love. And it is in their rarefied bliss that they make the fragile promise of first love, a promise that fate will soon rock and pound into doubt, guilt, and epiphany.

Unexpected and unprepared, these young lovers are suddenly torn apart, first by distance, and then by the far greater pressures of temptation that test the very fidelity of their heart-held promise. No longer able to console each other, hold each other, touch each other, they face the inevitable decision: move on to other loves, or cling to the faith that they will someday be together, again.
Will and Sarah stare down an unknown path, sensing destiny will not wait long before it comes to take them. Wracked with doubt, they wonder if their love was real. Caged by guilt, they both feel tempted by others intent on stealing their hearts.

Fate plays hardest when love is tested. And Will and Sarah are no exception, letting go of their happy past to embrace hope for an uncharted future. Love plays hardest when fate tests. And so it is, even through their trials of the heart, Will and Sarah never really stop loving each other. Theirs is a love so real and pure that each just wants the other to find happiness, even if it's with another.

But fate does not surrender so easily. Dealing blow upon blow, both Will and Sarah are each struck by jolting events that take them to the very edge of life, itself.

Sarah and Will hold tightly to their past, but steadfast promises begin to wane. Life continues, filled with romance, drama, and two souls yearning to understand the challenges brought with coming of age, and learning that fate is ultimately in control. What happens to love when life is on the line? Can they both relinquish control when love is on the line? Will fate even allow them to find out?

Blitz: Someone To Listen by A.T. Douglas


Someone To Listen
A.T. Douglas
Book Synopsis:
Abby wanted a fresh start, a new life thousands of miles away from her four difficult years of high school and the rumors that followed her. As she begins her college experience in Boston, she finds friendship and love she didn’t expect, people who show her that she doesn’t have to be alone.
She is torn between two paths, inexplicably drawn to two completely different guys. One understands her and reminds her of who she used to be, the broken shadow of a person wandering through life but not truly living. The other is the key to her future, the guiding hand that she waited for years to pull her out of the darkness and into the light.
When Abby’s newfound happiness and renewed existence are threatened, everything changes. She can fall back to that dark place within her or fight to save her future.
She faces the same struggle she has all along: getting someone to hear her, finding someone to believe her.
All she ever needed was someone to listen.

Blog Tour: Rose of Thorne by Mia Michelle


When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local cafĂ© and struggling to pay the bills. 

Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life. 

Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away…the one person he hates ..his father.

Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams. Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.

Haunted by their past, these two want nothing more than to have their life given back to them. But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

* BOOK 2 THORNELESS will follow VERY VERY SOON!! Contains sexual content and abusive situations. Recommended for readers 18+ years.

Mia fell in love with the literary world at a very young age and began putting her active imagination to pen and paper by the age of six. Over the years, she has filled up numerous shelves with her notebooks and journals of her favorite stories. Twelve years ago, Mia began drafting The Thorne Series and through encouragement of a close friend, decided to finally take the leap of faith to bring her dream to life. She openly admits to having a hopeless infatuation with her Kindle and suffers from the one-click book addiction (No intervention required). 

Mia is currently a stay at home mom who has mastered the fine art of making a PB&J sandwich in between laundry and shuttling kids to ballet and swimming. In her spare time (“What spare time?” She laughs), she enjoys photography, traveling, and having a girls night out with her pals. She enjoys the simple things in life, such as sleeping more than 3 hours per night and 10 minute showers without being interrupted by children yelling “mommy” from the other side of the bathroom door. 

Mia Michelle resides in Tennessee with her soul mate and husband of 18 years and their 2 beautiful young children. She is currently working on her Masters in Counseling and drafting her new series. 
I stare as Lucas wraps his hand in hers and leads her on through the restaurant. The waiter sits them in the far back secluded corner of the dining room. From where I am standing at the bar I can see her face clearly. The warm restaurant lights make her glow as she sat smiling from across the table at him. She looks at him shyly as he leans in to whisper something to her. I notice her delicate skin blush and then he takes her hand into his and gently kisses it.
 Damn it! She is so damn beautiful!! Get your fucking paws off her, Lucas!
 All I want to do is take her into my arms and kiss her senseless. I want to throw her over my shoulder and spend the entire night kissing every delectable perfect inch of her body. Her stunning face brightens as she begins laughing at something he says. The very thought of her being in Lucas’ bed later tonight sets me over the edge and I know I have to get the hell out there. The blonde looks at me confused as I grab my leather jacket so I grab her ass to indicate that I am ready to head back to my place.
Truthfully, I have lost my feel for her, but knowing that I can fuck some of my frustrations out with her has me grabbing her hand and pulling her out of the lounge.
As we make our way to the front door of the restaurant I brave one last glance towards Skylar’s table only to find her beautiful eyes upon mine. Her glance is full of hurt, pain and pure sadness. She quickly blinks and looks down then excuses herself from the table. I find myself wanting to run to her but I don’t. I have to get myself under control and fast.
I am Sebastian Thorne. Ruthless, arrogant Sebastian Thorne, heartless to the core.
