Excerpt: Enchanted Desire by Paul Lonardo

Image
Teaser When you dare to dream, you might as well dream to have it all
Blurb I had my life all planned out...until I met him. Kenny Honana is sexy and alluring. Mysterious. I’d always been drawn to the Native American heritage, and now I found myself dream-deep in a supernatural tribal ritual. Little did I know, his vision quest would involve me in a sexual odyssey beyond my wildest dreams. But when the quest is over...what becomes of us.

EXCERPT My disappointment quickly turned to delight when I saw the tall, broad figure that cut through the steam in the room. I knew it was Kenny right away.

“I had to see you.” Kenny’s voice boomed like thunder in my ears, making my body shudder.
“How did you—” I could not finish what I was going to say before Kenny crossed the room to the bathtub in three strides and gently put the tips of two fingers against my lips. “Sh-hhhhh.”
The sibilating sound lulled me back into tranquility. He slowly ran the fingers of his right hand along my …

Review: The Reaper's Sacrifice (Deathmark #2) by Abigail Baker

Image
SynopsisIt’s been two years since I tried to overthrow Death... 
Now, all I have to show for it is a life in exile without my lover and personal Grim Reaper, Brent Hume. He bargained his soul for my safety. If I could get him back, I would, but I don't don't have the first idea how. So I live for the night when Reaper’s bring nightmares to the living—and Brent visits me in mine. Doesn’t make for a good night’s sleep, but I’ll take what little of him I can get.

When Death comes calling, sending me into an old foe’s camp as a spy, my inner rebel awakens once more. If I play my cards right, I might improve upon my growing Master Scrivener powers and finally free Brent so that we can be together for good. I know he’ll do anything to keep me safe—even if it means I’ll never see him again. And that scares the Hell out of me.

SynopsisThree terrifying months. 
That’s how long Kitty Laughton has been at the mercy of the scientist who experimented on her town, killing over a dozen people and giving the rest of them unique powers. But Kitty doesn’t feel powerful, especially when she learns the crazy man plans to test his research on more unsuspecting people. She refuses to let anyone else die, but trapped with no one to help her she’s out of options…that is until sexy and exasperating Nick Degrassi arrives.

Review: The Prince's Bride by Diane Alberts

SynopsisAlicia Forkes went to a trendy club looking for a way to forget her troubles, and she found that in the arms of the gorgeous man who swept her off of her feet…and into one of the hottest encounters she’d ever had in her life.

Excerpt
Lily Brightwell stretched her arms up to the pulsing lights, then waited for the music to graze her fingertips. She closed her eyes and smiled, as the loud notes penetrated her skin and ran throughout her veins, along with her blood, guiding its course and speed. Her body swayed to the music, as her eyelids fluttered, then finally her pale-blue eyes opened to take in the crowd around her. The club was filled with bodies, perfumes, and colors. As she danced, Lily's gaze carefully searched for a suitable partner. As she considered the enchanted faces, Lily made her way through the throbbing crowd, still letting her body follow the pattern painted by the music.  While she moved, a young man with dark hair and flushed skin – his dancing endearingly clumsy – smiled at her, but soon looked away. A warm hand stroked Lily's, catching her attention; Lily turned and met a beautiful woman with short, blond hair. The woman's long, lithe fingers stroked Lily's white strands, …
