Excerpt

“Climb gates around here often?” he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.

               He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize he’d likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. I’d have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasn’t it at all. It was purely because of him—the sexy Spanish-speaking god who’d saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.

               I’d have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized he’d asked a question I hadn’t retained.

               “Um, huh?” I asked, perfectly clueless.

               “I was asking if you’re a professional gate climber,” he said huskily.

               “No, I—”

               “She’s really fine after a fall from that height?” the officer asked as he came through the gate.

               “She never hit the ground,” my savior said, “since I caught her.”

               The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. I’d have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.

               “So now that I’m on this side I really need to get my—”
               The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. “Miss, please remain silent while I work out what’s going on here.”

               I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.

               The officer turned back to the Spanish model—I naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for men’s cologne. You know the kind of ads I’m talking about, right? There’s always a sexy guy giving you the let’s have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.

                He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn’t appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing me—which meant he knew I’d been staring at him. Again.

               I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. “Are you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?” he asked.

               I couldn’t resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale he’d be called el más caliente.

               His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. “My brother called, yes.”

               “What’s your name, sir?”

               “Alejandro Cruz.”

               Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.

               The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. “And your brother’s name?”

               “Rafael Cruz.”

               “And you?” the cop asked with a head nod toward me.

               “Kaya Porter.”

               “Can you spell that?”
               “K-a-y-a,” I answered.

               “That’s a weird name,” the officer said as he wrote it down.

               I wasn’t sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldn’t understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. I’d never been one to care one way or the other about a man’s voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.
               “So were you trying to escape or get in?” the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.

               “I was trying to get in,” I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything I’d said, “I told you—”

               “No, no, she is not the disturbance,” Alejandro interjected. “My brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldn’t have called the police—it’s animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and he’s been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.”

              My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. “Don’t talk about my little buddy like that,” I snapped.

 

Header I Want

QUE CALOR!!! Really, HOT DAMN!!! I feel like I should build a shrine for these Cruz brothers, because they are  whole new league of their own in matters of Best Book Boyfriend. 

Trust me, if you haven’t yet read the first installment, I Don’t, you need to. STAT! I though Mateo was as good as it could get, with all my ideals for main male character more than filled out. Well, seems I shouldn’t have supposed because Alejandro is just as dreamy and delicious! 

It didn’t matter because just like Mateo had said about the night he saw Avelina in the sunroom, I knew what Kaya was to me.

Yep, you got it right, Alejandro will conquer all your hearts and make you swoon, hard!

Alejandro and Kaya meet when she falls on his arms, literally, in her mission to recover her borrowed pet peacock, Elvis. Let’s just say it’s the most of unconventional first meets, but boy did it pack a punch. For both of them!

As much as I wanted to pretend I wasn’t, the truth was that I was beyond attracted to Alejandro Cruz.

Here it start the major swooning moments, given it only took that chance, brief encounter for Alejandro to know that Kaya is everything he’s been looking for – very unsuccessfully we might say,lol – and to know he’ll do anything to prove and show her she’s his one.

“Be careful, man. Your past—” 
“Is just that,” I interrupted. “It’s in the past. I never knew what I was looking for until I met her.”

Once again I was enchanted with how Ella developed this story, considering even though we have this instant-love/lust, their relationship has a wonderful slow built, starting with a good friendship, when both their bodies craved so much more, but Alejandro showed once again how incredible he was, because that is just what Kaya needed, patience, love and care. The insane attraction was always present, he just had to show her all they could be.

Our chemistry was electric, so much so that you could almost see it arcing between. I’d do whatever needed to be done to get her on board with being mine. Already I knew I was hers.

I can’t enhance enough how much I love all these characters, both the main ones and all the secondary ones, even the grumpy Rafael. And Elvis! OMG, he was bloody brilliant, and kudos to Ella for thinking so outside the box with not only in regards of the type of pet (loved all the extra info about this beautiful species I knew very little about), but also for giving him a more important role than I could have dreamt of! 

Alejandro was thankful to Elvis for all his help, and he was spot on! Without Elvis he never would have so easily conquered – or met – his soulmate!

I knew Kaya was different—had known it since the moment I met her. She wasn’t my past—she was my future.

From the first touch of his lips to mine I knew that Alejandro Cruz was in a class all of his own.

They really were PERFECT together! Completed each other in everything, and you could feel they were meant to be and I was rooting for them from the start, and so giddy with excitement right along with Kaya, because, hello? Hot swoon worthy, gorgeous latino! How could we resist?

“I wish there were a way to explain just how much I love your touch on my skin,” he said. “It is everything, Kaya. Everything.”

He was too much and not enough all at once, the most perfect symphony of feeling I’d ever experienced in my life.

Sigh… How good and delicious his this man?! And HOT! Sexy hot! Loyal, devoted, loving and caring, and all wrapped up in the perfect and irresistible package! Ella Foy hit all the right notes with I Want, exactly like she did with I Don’t, giving us this enticingly captivating, sweet and super sexy little read, that left me now craving, longing, even more for Rafael’s story, I need. Specially after that tidbit at the end! Now I’m the one that needs it, and NEED IT, NOW! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Te amo.”
Her eyes widened and her lips opened in surprise. “Is that—did you just tell me that you love me?”
“Sí, mi amor. I love you, Kaya.”

“There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, Kaya. The instant you fell into my arms I knew you were my soulmate. Everything I’ve done since then has been about keeping you.”

Synopsis
 

Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends.  He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.

***

Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat.  She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks.  And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent.  Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?

Wrong.

This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

HOT DAMN!!!These girls are AWESOME!

And yes, I mean both this writing duo and these Coltraine twins!

One Coletrain fleeing is not good, but those two teamed up is bound to be catastrophic.

After reading the first book, Jail House Rock, I thought things couldn’t get much better and funny than Millie and Jake, but boy was I wrong! Tillie, the true outlaw sister, and Nathan – aka Oficcer Trent – were absolutely brilliant. They are the proof that opposites do indeed attract, and even though they’re on opposite sides of the law, nothing can stop their destiny.

There’s only one thing I’ve ever wanted more than being a cop, and currently, she is Sugar Hills’ number-one fugitive.

Officer Nathan Trent, resident all-around good guy. My heaven. My hell.

And if they try, Nate isn’t going to allow it, because one thing he has no doubt since he was a boy, and he took a look at those blue eyes, Tillie Coletrain was HIS. After that he just had to bid his time until she was ready for him to lay his claim. Well, seems that time has come…

Despite knowing how wrong we look for each other from the outside, I know—and have always known—we are a perfect match.

Tillie may try to run, hide or push him away – she has done it countless times, lol – , even though she has wanted him for long to, but considering she thinks she is not good enough for him, she doesn’t even contemplate he can be hers, but Officer Trent is not taking no for an answer, and uses all the guns at his disposal to prove to her, he knows all that she hides behind that sassy and badass persona, and he loves all of her. That, and he’s been waiting all this time for her! Yes, ladies, a virgin H! Just one of the reasons for which I ADORED him soooo much!!! Best Book Boyfriend material right here!

He kisses me like he’s forgotten every mouth but mine. He meets my lips with the kind of fervor that makes me feel like he thinks he’s the lucky one and I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to him. And I’ve never been anyone’s best anything.

Wild Thing was absolute smutty perfection! Über funny and lighthearted, a super sweet and sexy alpha that proves himself BBB material, with some smoking hot moments and a kickass heroine with a huge heart. Indeed a fast paced, addictive little read, that I loved even more than the first book. Can’t wait to see what these ladies will bring us next! Maybe the nutty Hannah and her very own version of SOA, Jax?! LOL <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“For fuck’s sake, Officer Trent. Put the artillery away,” I say, nudging his big bicep with my elbow. “We aren’t at the damn gun show.”

“Always knew my heaven could be found between your thighs,”

Synopsis
 

Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.
It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.
What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he’s supposed to rescue. But he can’t help being intrigued–and amused–by the defiance rolling off Audrey every time he so much as speaks to her. This fascination only intensifies with every single word from her delectable mouth.

***

It’s been six years since her assault, yet it feels like it happened just yesterday. Audrey’s sick and tired of feeling so useless. She’s had enough of being scared, she’s doesn’t want to be all alone for the rest of her life. All of that boils down to a woman who’s had enough of not doing anything to reclaim her life.
She’s at a loss as to how to move on, and every attempt she makes results in failure. Just when she’s ready to quit, a sexy biker is there to push her out of her comfort zone.
Under Tobias’ patient guidance, Audrey slowly makes her way back to herself. She lands a job that she adores, and she thinks she’s finally found her place in this world. Most surprisingly, though, she finds herself falling in love with a man that honestly scares her to death.
Just when she vows to take that final step that’ll put her past in her past forever, the life she wants to live is yanked away. Leaving her with nothing to pick up the pieces.

Header For the Love of Beard

4.5 ‘Healing Hearts’ Stars

Hot damn! Lani Lynn Vale did it again, and I’m equal parts sad to see my LLV’s FAV series go (though we know we’ll get more at some point from the Dixie Wardens Rejects, yay) and so, so very happy, because For The Love of Beard, Tobias and Audrey story, really was the PERFECT conclusion for the series. A story of rebirth and healing at its very best, with Toby stealing my heart with the way he cherished and loved Audrey from their very first encounter! I Adored these two, their tale and all the feelings they created, so very much!

As we know from Beard Up – if you haven’t yet read this amazing story, you NEED to! – Tobias was sent to save and protect Audrey from a possible and terrible fate, what he hadn’t counted was to fall in love at the spot.

I was that annoying man who followed her around like a goddamned puppy.

 

It was the longest two days I’d ever experienced. 
On the plus side, we got all her crap packed. The downside? I lost my heart.

Audrey, as we LLV’s fans know, is Tunnel’s sister, and was horribly sexually assaulted six years prior – Life To My Flight – and has sense retracted on to herself, just revealing a snappy and sassy persona, and kidding her true self, and protecting her heart behind steel walls.

Fully acknowledging all this and the rough path that laid ahead for him, Tobias took an amazing way to approach Audrey’s prickly demeanor, showing how much he understood and cared for her beyond everything else. 

On the outside, I may look undamaged. But if it was possible to see to the heart of a person, mine would look torn, mangled and bruised.

Toby really was the perfect match for her in every way, and I couldn’t have pictured a better person to understand all that Audrey had been trough and its subsequent damaged. After all broken souls and damaged hearts is something his family is well versed in. Something that luckily Lani will allow us to explore in her upcoming new series, Hail Raisers.

Through a lot of patience, true love and care, Audrey’s soul slowly started to heal, and Toby’s heart, to his own surprise, gained a new life, in his love for her. They truly healed one another.

All of it was gone, and in its place was Audrey. 
She surrounded me, filled my heart, and I never wanted her to leave.

And when Audrey couldn’t resist the handsome, tattooed and bearded biker, that was a standing feature in her life, anymore, and gave in to their attraction, and let go, it was everything and more that Toby could have wished for, so much more. It was explosive! 

He plundered my mouth, his tongue tangling with my own, as he claimed me. 
And it was a claiming. Everything in that kiss told me exactly what I needed to know.
I was his. Now. Tomorrow, and next week. He wanted me, and I had to either accept it, or fight.

Once that line was crossed there was no stopping them, and oh boy, were they HOT!!! Prepare yourself, because this book has the steamiest sex scenes in any of Lani Lynn Vale’s book! *cue fanning myself*

Until then, I’m going to be the best roommate you’ve ever had.” 
“A roommate with benefits?”  She started to chuckle. “Will you sneak into my room at night and have your dirty way with me, Mr. Dixie Warden Reject?” 
I grinned widely. “Yeah, but you won’t be leaving my bed after we’re done.” 
“Why is that?” I turned my serious eyes back to the road, too. 
“Because you won’t be able to feel your legs until morning.”

And their banter! It was so incredible awesome and hilarious at times! I’ll say it again, and again, truly PERFECT MATCH!

I was more than aware of the consequences. I’ve attended nine police officer funerals in my years as a cop. I knew better than she did the sacrifices we had to make each day, and the possibility of putting that shield on over our hearts one day, but not the next.

As per LLV usual we have all those suspenseful, hilarious, steamy and emotional moments, as well as a touching sensibilization for the hard and dangerous reality that is working in Law Enforcement. Lani’s main characters, are, imo, so incredibly enticing for the realism in which she portraits them, and Tobias and Audrey are the perfect example of it. I loved them beyond words, and I’m said to see these Rejects go, but I’m sure this isn’t the last of we’ll see of them. Now, counting down the days until LLV’s new series and their first installments, Pitch Please and Hail No! Lani’s really spoils us rotten, and I couldn’t love her more for it! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

There were a lot of people in love in the world, but only the ones who truly felt it the deepest, and were willing to fight for that love, were the ones that stayed together.

“I love you, Audrey Morrison, soon-to-be Hail.” I squeezed his neck tighter. “I love you right back, Tobias Hail.

Synopsis

Anya is getting ready to go to college, but she’s sad to leave her bodyguard behind. Sasha has been everything to her over the year, even more than he knows. She’s fantasized about all the ways he could do more than just protect her, and leaving him is making her heart ache. What she doesn’t know is he’s got his own plans, and they include more than she could have possibly dreamed of.

Sasha is the big Russian bodyguard everyone stays clear of. He’s intimidating, rough, and knows how to kill. But there’s a soft spot inside him, and it’s name is Anya. He’s made a promise to her father and to himself that he won’t touch her until he’s fulfilled his duty. But that time is almost up, and her innocence is free to claim.

Warning: We know how our readers love it dirty with a side of sweet so we’ve stolen a book from Jessa Kane, and added our own little sparkle to it. It’s the filthiest ever, so bring a spoon. You guys are going to eat it up.

But when he’s finally rescued, he can’t return to the Wildlands with the other prisoners. Not without the female he was forced to watch being impregnated. The female who has gone missing.

Beautiful and broken, Valli just wants to run away and never look back. But with the shocking news of her pregnancy fresh in her mind, she wonders if that’s even possible. Told by her captors that one of the caged animals assaulted her, she knows she must do everything in her power to keep her unborn child safe. But when a glorious male tracks her down and claims her and her baby as his own, will she have the strength to walk away?

Excerpt

 

Walking out of the kitchen with careful steps, Valli wondered if Fran suspected she wasn’t feeling well. Again. If so, the older woman would insist that she go upstairs to bed. It was such a temptation, but it would not only leave Fran alone to deal with both cooking and waiting tables—it would be a reminder of the last time she’d been unwell. And she couldn’t risk losing her job, even if Fran let her stay upstairs while she hired out again. She had to push through.

Once out of the kitchen, she scurried down the short hallway that led to the women’s bathroom. Crossing to the sink, she splashed cold water on her face, taking deep breaths.

After a moment or two the dizziness receded but was replaced by a strange sense of euphoria. As if something, or someone, was filling her with pure joy.

Unnerved by the sensation, Valli rushed out of the bathroom, only to slam into a man who was just entering the hallway.

Dr. Scott Richards reached out to grasp her by the shoulders, preventing her from bouncing away like a pinball.

“Valli, are you okay?” he asked in concern.

She instantly pulled away from his touch. It wasn’t personal. The doctor was young and boy-next-door handsome, with his dark blond hair and bright blue eyes. He even had dimples. But since her return from the clinic she didn’t want anyone touching her. Especially not men.

She forced a smile to her lips. “Sorry, Dr. Richards.”

He clicked his tongue. “How many times do I need to tell you to call me Scott? Dr. Richards was my dad.”

She took another step backward. Since her arrival in Bonne, she sensed that Scott wanted more from her than just a doctor/patient relationship.

“Scott,” she reluctantly offered.

“That’s better.” He flashed his dimples. “Now why don’t you join me for a cup of coffee? You look like you could use some caffeine.”

“I’m fine.”

He frowned. “You’re pale.”

“I’m working a double shift, so it’s been a long day.”

“Hmm.” His gaze studied the shadows she knew marred the skin beneath her eyes before lowering to her loose smock. Did he suspect there was something she was trying to hide? Or was he just surprised in her choice of uniform? “I think you need to come in for a checkup.”

A flush of anxiety moved through Valli at his words. She pressed herself against the wall and began to inch her way toward the back door that served as an emergency exit.

She liked this man. She really did. But there was no way in hell she was allowing him to examine her. No way in hell she was letting him even get close enough to try.

“I told you when I returned to town that I was cured.”

 

 

 

 

Header Blade

 

My FAV of all the Bayou Heat and Blade was the best (even surpassing Hakan) Hero! The Perfect Pantera! *Swooning and sighing simultaneously*

It was a strange thing, family. It wasn’t found only in blood—sometimes it wasn’t there at all. Sometimes it was found in the hearts and souls of those who were lucky enough to love.

Blade and Valli were put together in the most horrible of circumstances, and treated and abused like animals, so when they were finally rescued they get separated, and after being lied to, Valli runs and tries to hide her surprise pregnancy. But Blade would not allow for the beautiful and hurt female that was carrying his cub to stay away, unprotected and alone.

“It’s over now, ma chère. No one will ever hurt you again. I swear it on my life.”

Valli was hard to convince, specially when her brain was telling her to protect herself against the handsome green eyed stranger, but her heart end up winning the battle, because deep down she knew her connection with Blade was so much stronger than all the deceit she was told.

Blade was EVERYTHING! Absolutely perfect from the very beginning, even when Fate threw this situation his way, he was flawless in his reaction to Valli and her pregnancy. He recognized his reaction to her, and fought for them, non-stop.

“If you don’t want me to devour you right now, make you tremble and cry out, tell me to get the fuck out of here and never come back.” 
He waited. Dying of thirst, nearly going mad, he waited.

Their attraction was palpable and impossible to fight, so when they came together, oh boy, it was HOT! And made me swoon even more for this Pantera! My Fav, for sure. Sigh… <3

“Goddess, you feel like heaven,” Blade said, his eyes never leaving hers as he remained buried deep inside of her. “My heaven.”

If we had gotten even more in the end and more about their future it would have been the full 5 stars! Blade and Valli more than deserved it, but even though this is the standard ending with this series, I craved and felt we could have gotten a bit more on them. Nonetheless superb read and an all time PNR fav! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I’m grateful. I want more. I want this to never fucking end. I want to touch you, kiss you, lick you, make love to you every day of my life.” His eyes met hers. “Don’t you see, female? Freedom is all the more beautiful because you’re in it with me.”

She belonged in the Wildlands. 
With Blade. 
With her mate. 
He was her true home.

About the Author

Alexandra Ivy - headshotAlexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Alexandra: “I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.

Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.

Laura Wright - headshotLaura Wright is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Laura: “Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.”

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong—but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents…

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

Synopsis

Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there’s been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he’s ever had to fight for.

5 Billion ‘Soul Deep Love’ Stars

First of all I’d just like to state, that years after I read these books and hundreds and hundreds after, REMY IS MINE!!! His love, devotion and heart gripping emotions towards Brooke made my ALL TIME best book boyfriend, the ultimate Perfectly Imperfect Hero, and I couldn’t have loved him more.

Their story was one of the most soul touching, heartfelt, tear inducing (happy and sad) I’ve had the pleasure of reading, and again, years passed and a reread done since RACER is coming (OooooooMmmmmGgggg, I need it now!!!), and I never forgot, and never will!

This kind of EPIC love, truly is as REAL as could be, and will be forever branded in your soul! As Remy, the very definition of Romantic Hero himself will, so don’t go trying to steal my man, but if you haven’t yet read this series, you NEED too stat!

Now, counting down the days until Racer is here to see if it’s really ‘like father like son’ and he will be up there on H Olympus! Not easy, having those high shoes to follow, and I Can’t freaking wait!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Excerpt

It was the prickle on the back of his neck that warned Blade he was being followed.

Slowing his steps, he forced himself into a casual stroll as he checked out the streets of Bonne, Louisiana. He feigned interest in several glass storefronts that lined the town square, nodding toward the occasional pedestrian who studied him with blatant curiosity—and if he wasn’t mistaken—which he rarely was—a thread of fear.

Clearly, the small town thirty miles south of Baton Rouge didn’t get many visitors.

Of course, it was possible that the men stared because he was six foot four with the hard muscles of a trained athlete that flexed and rippled beneath his faded jeans and ivory thermal shirt. And the women…well, their gazes were clearly trained on his short gold hair, midnight eyes, finely chiseled features, and those wide lips that normally smiled with a charming ease, but were now pressed together with grim determination.

Turning onto a side street, he thankfully found it all but deserted. The town had obviously never been a bustling metropolis, but over the years it’d faded to a sleepy village. Which meant he could deal with his stalker without unwanted attention.

Maintaining his leisurely saunter, he passed by an abandoned gas station that was next to an empty lot. The breeze tugged at his short hair, chilling his skin.

Louisiana had two seasons. Hot and humid. Or cool and humid.

Today it was the latter.

Come on, my friend, he mused to the male who was tailing him. Just another couple of blocks and we can…chat.

At the edge of town, it didn’t slowly ease from commercial to residential to suburbs like most places. It just ended. As if the thick woods ahead of him refused to give way to progress.

Turning, his back to the stand of trees now, he folded his arms over his chest and studied the seemingly empty street.

“Show yourself, Hiss,” he commanded in a low voice.

Synopsis
 

Ghost [gohst] noun:  the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.

That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision.  He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing.  Her.

She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

“** Sweet Jesus– Couldn’t put it down ** Absolutely LOVED IT!!!” – 5 Star Amazon Review

Header Beard Up

5 Million ‘7 X Unforgettable’ Stars!!!

Mind blown! Seriously, completely and utterly blown away! First, Lani Lynn Vale was killing us with the suspense around Ghost’s identity – which I’m not even hinting at, btw, believe me you’ll thank me for hanging onto every word until it’s revealed, like I did -, and now, she totally and utterly KILLED IT with Ghost’s story!!!
Since the very first book of the Dixie Wardens Rejects, we all been dying to know and read Ghost’s story, so much so that ended up as origin and speculation in endless threads on media. Beard Up became of the most anticipated Release of the year, and undoubtedly of all of LLV’s books.
Well, I can honestly say all the anticipation and built up were surpassed by the book, and specially the main couple. I never thought it would be possible to come up with a explanation for Ghost’s decision where I would completely forgive him, but damn, Lani sure proved me wrong, because I was rendered speechless. Completely understandable and without another choice, no one would have chosen the alternative, so I hurt for him, as much as for his wife and child.
His wife’s reaction was another of the highlights, totally unexpected, and so humanly realistic, I cried right along with her, and felt what she felt.

“I made a promise to myself a long time ago,” she said, her voice heavy with grief. “To God. To anyone that would listen.”
I swallowed thickly, not sure that I wanted to hear what she had to say.
“What?”
“That if I ever got another chance…if you came back to me some way, that I wouldn’t squander it. I wouldn’t scream. I wouldn’t yell. I wouldn’t question. I wouldn’t hate. I’d love you. I’d love you for every single second that you were gone. I’d hug you. Kiss you. Never let go.” 

More of a surprising, honest and heartfelt explanation I couldn’t have asked for. Their reunion brought simultaneously to tear and smiles, and heart as full as the MCs themselves. I adored every devoted word, every caring gesture and loving feelings. Beard Up was one of the most realistic and truly heartfelt stories I’ve ever read. This married couple’s love and devotion made me fall in love all over again, not only with Lani Lynn Vale’s writing, but with all Romance all over again! Top Three best reads of the year and fav LLV of all time! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

My heart was full.
I had the love of my life in my arms, and our kids in our bed. My club—both of them—at my back.
It was a long, painful road back to this point. I’d never take any of this for granted because life just didn’t get any better than this.

Synopsis
 

Ghost [gohst] noun:  the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.

That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision.  He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing.  Her.

She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

5 Million ‘7 X Unforgettable’ Stars!!!

Mind blown! Seriously, completely and utterly blown away! First, Lani Lynn Vale was killing us with the suspense around Ghost’s identity – which I’m not even hinting at, btw, believe me you’ll thank me for hanging onto every word until it’s revealed, like I did -, and now, she totally and utterly KILLED IT with Ghost’s story!!!
Since the very first book of the Dixie Wardens Rejects, we all been dying to know and read Ghost’s story, so much so that ended up as origin and speculation in endless threads on media. Beard Up became of the most anticipated Release of the year, and undoubtedly of all of LLV’s books.
Well, I can honestly say all the anticipation and built up were surpassed by the book, and specially the main couple. I never thought it would be possible to come up with a explanation for Ghost’s decision where I would completely forgive him, but damn, Lani sure proved me wrong, because I was rendered speechless. Completely understandable and without another choice, no one would have chosen the alternative, so I hurt for him, as much as for his wife and child.
His wife’s reaction was another of the highlights, totally unexpected, and so humanly realistic, I cried right along with her, and felt what she felt.

“I made a promise to myself a long time ago,” she said, her voice heavy with grief. “To God. To anyone that would listen.”
I swallowed thickly, not sure that I wanted to hear what she had to say.
“What?”
“That if I ever got another chance…if you came back to me some way, that I wouldn’t squander it. I wouldn’t scream. I wouldn’t yell. I wouldn’t question. I wouldn’t hate. I’d love you. I’d love you for every single second that you were gone. I’d hug you. Kiss you. Never let go.” 

More of a surprising, honest and heartfelt explanation I couldn’t have asked for. Their reunion brought simultaneously to tear and smiles, and heart as full as the MCs themselves. I adored every devoted word, every caring gesture and loving feelings. Beard Up was one of the most realistic and truly heartfelt stories I’ve ever read. This married couple’s love and devotion made me fall in love all over again, not only with Lani Lynn Vale’s writing, but with all Romance all over again! Top Three best reads of the year and fav LLV of all time! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

My heart was full.
I had the love of my life in my arms, and our kids in our bed. My club—both of them—at my back.
It was a long, painful road back to this point. I’d never take any of this for granted because life just didn’t get any better than this.
