#NewRelease “Torrid Throne” by Julie Johnson

Image may contain: sky, text and outdoorAUTHOR: Julie Johnson

SERIES: The Forbidden Royals Trilogy, #2

RELEASE DATE: March 25, 2019

Sarah’s Musings…


While there are moments I loved, Torrid Throne, ultimately, didn’t have enough development with the plot or the characters for me to fall in love with it like I did Dirty Halo.

There are moments within this story I would give 5 crowns to. Any moment with Carter and Emilia is one million percent electric. You can feel the want and angst permeate the air whenever they are near each other. Their desires licks the air. It is palpable, and I loved every single moment.

The pacing and plot development of this story is too slow for me. There are too many avenues presented: danger from the anti-monarchy group, the betrayal of Owen, the issue with potential suitors, the current threat to the throne, Carter’s past relationship, the forbidden romance between the two. All of these areas are talked about but few are really developed, which left the plot feeling very underdeveloped and very much like filler for book 3. It also leaves me feeling, as a reader, that I have no idea where the story is going or even how all of these plot details that have been introduced will be resolved in the final book. Because now that they have been introduced to the story, I need all parts resolved to in Sordid Empire.

The last chunk of the book, though, would get 5 CROWNS. I loved it. Couldn’t get enough. There was plot progression, emotional and sexy moments with Emilia and Carter. It was everything I hoped the whole book would have been.

While Torrid Throne missed the mark for me, I still enjoyed Julie Johnson’s writing, and I’m still largely invested in Carter and Emilia’s romance. I’ll be excited to see how this all ends.

#NewRelease “Envy” by M.N. Forgy

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.
I am Envy.Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

#CoverReveal “Well Suited” by Staci Hart

Today is the day for the cover reveal of the fourth and final book in the Red Lipstick Coalition Series. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book, even if it means the end of an incredible series. Today I am excited to share with you the cover reveal for Well Suited, Katherine’s story, coming May 2, 2019!


Chemistry is my love language.

I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

When: approximately five weeks ago.

Who: one night stand.

How: prophylactic malfunction.

The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit. I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

Sarah’s Musings…

I generally enjoy P. Dangelico’s writing, so when I read this synopsis, I just knew that I had to read this book. With each teaser I saw on FB, my anticipation only increased, and now is the time! It is almost here!



Reagan Reynolds…

Water polo god.
Owner of a face that belongs under Wikipedia’s definition of drop dead gorgeous.
Too charming for his own good.
But most importantly––the worst driver on the planet.

No, really, I’m pretty sure his blind nana taught him how to drive.

I had no idea who he was until he almost ran me over. And frankly, I kind of wish I still didn’t because then I wouldn’t have a sprained ankle to show for it. And my leg wouldn’t resemble a boa constrictor that’s swallowed a feral pig.

Yeah, it’s that bad.

I’ve spent years saving every penny I’ve ever earned to be able to transfer to Malibu University. And now my entire future––including my scholarship––is in jeopardy.

So I either accept the help he insists on giving me or lose everything I’ve sacrificed for.

In the meantime, I’m going to ignore the fact that we’re becoming friends.

And I’m definitely going to pretend he’s not turning into the object of my…umm, dirty fantasies.

That’s not happening.

Not even a little.

Because the minute I clapped eyes on him I knew he was nothing but trouble.

#BlogTour “A Lesson in Thorns” by Sierra Simone

A Lesson In Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone
Cover Reveal: March 13th ♦ Release Date: March 21st
Cover Designer: Hang Le ♦ Image: Trevillion Images

Sarah’s Musings…

4 Married by Thorns CROWNS

A Lesson in Thorns is unlike anything I have read, and yet it was a tad reminiscent of the Camelot Trilogy with the relationships and allusions to ancient traditions and tales. It is different in that there is bit more of a hedonistic nature to the story, as Thornchapel is built upon traditions and customs that have evolved from pagan times to present. And while, this was not my normal read, I was enthralled but it all just the same.

The host of characters runs the gamut. They all have different professions, different personalities, different socio-economic statuses, and yet something draws them all to each other. They are all connected to this home, to the land, to Thornchapel, and, as a result, to each other. The one thing that they all have in common seems to be their sexual proclivities, which is also a key component to the story. The one thing, though, that I always love about a Sierra Simone book is that this isn’t for shock value or to read a steamy, hot book. The sexuality of her characters turns into an examination of the human psyche – what we want, crave, desire. There is an examination of how these cravings form personalities and affect relationships. There is a freedom her characters have that makes it freeing for the readers, too.

The story was a bit slow for me in parts. There are many, maybe too many, moments that talk about the connection to the land and Thornchapel. These parts began to slow down the plot for me, and while I understand the need for this land and place to become its own character, in a sense, it took on such a large part of the plot. As the story progresses, though, and secrets are revealed, I became entranced by the mystery surrounding the place and that summer so long ago. I become intrigued by the involvement of parents and how that is going to play a part in their relationships. I need to know about how all the relationships are going to change and alter and grow. I need more Auden, Saint, and Poe. I need more Beckett. I need more Delphine and Rebecca. And I need more story after the way the first book ends.

In true Sierra Simone fashion, I was enchanted by her prose, by the sexual freedom of her characters, and at her examination of human nature. Add to that the mystery she seems to be developing, and I am in for the long haul.

#CoverReveal “Eleanor & Grey” by Brittainy C. Cherry

Cover Designer: Hang Le ♦ Photographer: Rafa G Cátala

Eleanor & Grey FOR WEB.jpg

Greyson East left his mark on me.

As the young girl who first fell for him, I didn’t know much about life. I did know about his smiles, though, and his laughs, and the strange way my stomach flipped when he was near.

Life was perfect…until it wasn’t, and when we were forced to go our separate ways, I held on to our memories, let go of my first crush, and wished for the day I’d find him again.

When my wish came true, it was nothing like I imagined.

I couldn’t have known when I took the nanny position that it would be his children I looked after, that my new boss would be that boy I used to know, that boy who was now a man—a cold, lonely, detached man.

The smile and laugh I had loved so much were gone, now distant memories. Every part of him was covered in a fresh pain.

When he realized who I was, he made me promise to do my job and my job only.

He made me promise not to try to get to know him, not to recall the memories I’d treasured all this time.

But, sometimes, I saw the boy I’d once known in his stormy eyes. I saw the Greyson who smiled and laughed, who had stolen a young girl’s heart, and there was no doubt in my mind that this boy was worth fighting for.

I was given a second chance with the one who’d left his mark on me. All I hoped was that somehow I’d leave a mark on his soul, too.

#CoverReveal “Heartthrob” by Robin Bielman

He likes a challenge…

Heartthrob - CR Banner

Heartthrob, the first steamy standalone in the American Royalty Series from USA Today bestselling author Robin Bielman, is coming May 7th and we have the hot cover for you!



Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have an instant connection to someone. Which means I’m in serious trouble. Chloe’s a smart, sexy distraction I can’t afford, but one date can’t hurt, right? Only she turns me down. And just like that, it’s game on.

She’s sworn off love…

Finn Auprince is the hottest player in the major leagues. Look up “It Factor” in the dictionary and there’s his handsome face. He’s also my biggest client and I don’t care how easy it is to talk to him or how fun it is to manage his social media accounts, I will not give in to his charms. Then one drunken night, I tell him about my curse: all my previous boyfriends have found their soul mates while dating me. One more heartbreak, and I’ll never recover. But Finn doesn’t believe in curses—he believes in me. Professionally and personally. He sets out to prove the universe isn’t against me, and that his one true love isn’t waiting around the next corner.

The problem is…can we play the game of love and both come out on top?

#ExclusiveExcerpt “Sweet Fatality” by Desiree Adele



Image result for desiree adeleBlurb:

Everyone loves a hot, broody jock, right? The kind who’s stare sets your body on fire and all common sense flies out the window?

Well, not this girl.

Sure, Keith Montgomery has the looks, but in his case, beauty is only skin deep. He’s egotistical, obnoxious and the most shallow person I’ve ever met.

And I’m his new roommate.

Turns out we were both desperate.

But that’s where our commonalities end. He’s indecisive where I’m sensible, chaotic where I’m organized. So why do I ache for those minutes alone with him?

I’m not the type of girl who likes to get burned, but suddenly the idea of playing with Fire is getting harder to resist.

As a hitman for hire, Percivale is no stranger to violence.
From the moment he saw Blossom Jaymes through the window of her bakery, he knew he was in too deep.

He dealt in death and crime. The even bigger issue? Percivale’s next hit is on said sweet little baker who doesn’t seem to realize how much danger lurks around her with each passing day.
If he doesn’t get the job done, who will?

When Percivale has to decide what’s more important to him—the life of a woman who may very well be innocent or getting his revenge on the men who murdered his family—the lines become blurred. Morals are twisted and a deathly chase ensues that can only result in one thing—Blossom buried six feet under.
Or can it?
Can Percivale let his lust for revenge go in order to save Blossom from the bounty on her head, or will the power she unknowingly holds over him be what gets her killed?

#CoverReveal “Before We Fell” by Stacey Lynn

BWF - CR banner.jpg

Before We Fell, an all-new contemporary romance from Stacey Lynn is releasing April 9th.



For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The horror that rocked my small town last winter also brought Noah Wilkes into my life. The first almost broke all of us, but the second changed everything.

He stomped into my classroom all angry scowls and rudeness, the big-shot lawyer who was always too good for this small town. But the moment his smile softened toward his niece, it was me that melted.

The heartbreak that brought him back also brought me closer to him, to the man he hides from the world behind his swagger and aggression. The man I couldn’t help but fall for.

But life has a way of throwing a curveball when you least expect it, and this one could cost me everything–even him.

Turned out, our fates were written in the sky before we ever met—

Before we fell.

#NewRelease “Fleeting” by Carrie Aarons

Today we are celebrating the release of the newest standalone title by Carrie Aarons. FLEETING just went live, and it is the first book in the Nash Brothers series! Purchase it now or read for FREE as part of Kindle Unlimited, and follow Carrie for exclusive updates about the book.

Book Blurb:

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

#BlogTour “Heart of the Devil” by Meghan March

Heart of the Devil (Forge Trilogy, Book 3)

by Meghan March

Release Date: March 12, 2019

Sarah’s Musings…

GAH! This is why I love Meghan March’s books. Her brilliant mind ties all these seemingly unrelated pieces of the plot together for an epic conclusion, and I’m left reeling as each revelation occurs.

Jericho and Indy continue to be a favorite couple. Jericho is the epitome of a Meghan March hero with his alpha protective ways, but Jericho at the end of this book has me swooning. SWOONING. Indy comes into her own her. With the final book, she takes charge of her life and becomes the heroine we love and come to expect from Meghan. I love that she dusts herself off and comes for her HEA with metaphorical guns blazing .

The story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Being book three in the trilogy, it starts of with high emotion and continues with action packed events. There isn’t one dull moment in the whole thing. I could devour it fast enough.

I LOVED this trilogy. Sexy and suspenseful, The Forge Trilogy is one of Meghan March’s best works. I was consumed by their journey.

A Lesson In Thorns (Thornchapel #1) by Sierra Simone
Cover Reveal: March 13th ♦ Release Date: March 21st
Cover Designer: Hang Le ♦ Image: Trevillion Images


Once upon a time, six children stumbled upon a wild place hidden deep in the moors, shrouded by secrets and fog. There we played a game among the roses and the thorns that would change us forever, that would follow us the rest of our lives. A game that ended with a hard kiss in the rain and tattered flower petals fluttering from above…

And twelve years later, we’re back.

The heir.
The dreamer.
The priest.
The genius.
The socialite.
The saint.

I’m not going to dream of a forgotten place covered in thorns every night.
I won’t be enchanted by Thornchapel and its glossy, glamorous people. I’m not going to fall in love or have my heart torn in two.

I’m not telling the truth.

Because as this place slowly tightens its coil of secrets and thorns around us, as we uncover the knotted mysteries that grow here, the six of us begin to unravel into filthy, holy pleasure and pain. Fulfilling the promise we once made as children in those whispering ruins, and awakening a fate that will either anoint us or leave us in ashes…

#NewRelease “Malum” by Amo Jones

Malum Part One (The Elite King’s Club book 4), an all new dark romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!

Sarah’s Musings…


Just like the previous three books in the series, Malum will keep you riveted to its pages, trying to decipher any little clue, any piece of foreshadowing, and lost in the hate and love that is transitory between Nate and Tillie.

You think you know Nate. You don’t. Getting to see behind the playboy we met Bishop and Madison’s story, reveals this jokester playboy is just a mask. We see him struggle in this one with his emotions and with balancing his responsibilities as a king. Amo Jones even brings the softer side of Nate, and all I can say is hold onto your ovaries! You will melt into a pile of goo on the floor. Don’t worry, though, Amo still keeps that hard exterior that we love, the glimpses of the playboy, the moments that make readers all hot and bothered while simultaneously wanting to ring his neck. I simply loved the complexity of his character, and where she leaves him at the end of part 1 makes me a million times more excited for NATE part 2.

Tillie is the perfect counterpart to any king, but is her true match in every way. Although, not from their world, in a sense, she fits in the dynamics of their complex kingdom like she is. She understands the nuisances and knows when to push and when to retreat. She truly is Nate’s queen with her subtle strength, acceptance of his devious ways, and intelligence. She is one of my favorite Amo heroines.

As with any Amo Jones book, there are moments where I wanted to yell at her and even Nate to act or say different things because these characters are often volatile, violent, free spirited with narcotics, alcohol, and sexuality, but Amo Jones keeps her characters consistent and this is the world they live in. They have unlimited power, no real consequences for their behavior, live their lives unchecked, and are in essence young. They aren’t your standard youth in any way, and I loved reading about all the moments of chaos and corruption.

Because there are so many layers and intricacies to her plots, Malum is complex. In order to get it all and not miss many of the hints and important puzzle pieces, readers need to examine every moment, which won’t be hard because once you start this book, you won’t be able to walk away! You’ll demand people read it so you can theorize, dissect every detail, relive that final scene, and lament over the wait! It will be delicious torture, just the way the Kings and Amo Jones like it.

This isn’t your traditional romance. It has its dark moments, its dangerous and impulsive characters, and its sexually free and often amoral scenes, but it is everything we love about Amo Jones and the world of the Elite Kings. This is the world that brought me to the words of Amo Jones. It will forever be a favorite, a must read, and highly recommended series. Her words consume my time and I get lost happily in the corruption and love of the KINGS.
