Book Description:
Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who's been renovating her mansion for months?

Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it's Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons.

Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?
Check out this amazing excerpt the author prepared for you guys, I can´t wait to read this book!!!!! *coff coffTaryn Kincaid coff coff*
Veronica paced back and forth in the grand entry foyer of the Belmont mansion, the kitten heels of her Prada mules clacking on the marble floors.
The rest of the place might not be finished, but she’d insisted on having a few rooms completed, so at least she felt like she was living in a home, rather than a massive, never-ending construction project. Well, her contractor had insisted, even though working around the main entrance and central hallway created more work for him and his crew. But she was forced to admit he was right.
Her cell phone chimed on top of the antique credenza shoved flush against one wall. She leaped for it. Probably Geneviève, to regale her with all the fun she was having inParis. Or Sean, to advise her he couldn’t make it after all. She sighed and read the text message on the small screen.
Congratulations, Veronica. 1Night Stand has found your date. Have a good time.
With both anxiety and mounting excitement, she stared at the screen and waited. No other info. Outside in the night, thunder boomed. She jumped then laughed at herself.
Ghosts are one thing, but freaking out at the weather now? Cripes, you really do need this date!
She let her imagination run wild, then texted back for more details:
When? Where? Who?
An insistent pounding at the front door jarred her out of her fantasy. She swung the door open on another explosive crack of thunder.
Sean stood on her doorstep, his soaked T-shirt molding sculpted pecs and abs, his drenched hair flattened over his brow. Rain poured down as he fiddled with his iPhone, a bemused expression on his face. Behind him, jagged arrows of lightning tore the dark sky. He glared at the screen, glanced at her in confusion, then back at the screen.
Veronica’s own phone pinged again. Thunder roared. She read the message in disbelief.
You’re looking at him.

yup, you read rigth  this ain´t another PNR or UF review, you guys know how once in a while I look for some super cool, hawt, sexy reads to wipe my mind clean of everything paranormal and start fresh.
This time I bring you a Harlequin Title; this book isn´t out yet, is going to be published on april, and guys you better put it on your TBR pile right now. That is if you want to read everything about a cute scientific book worm nerd and the Sheik she wrapps around her tiny but feisty fingers.
I Loved Heir of a Desert Legacy, Sayid is not you average romantic joe, nope he´s a tough, unemotional, sexy, asshat, that won´t give a damm about anyone else´s feeling cause he doesn´t have any to start with.
When he finds out where Chloe is hidding the Heir,  she leaves him no way out other than to bring her with him; or so he likes to think. Truth is, he´s entranced by her and well, having her in his kindom might prove helpfull in more than one way.
Chloe´s love for the only family she has, changes her life forever, she´s not only taking care of an infant; a thing she knows nothing about, but her lifelong dream is suffering too. when Sayid knocks on her door and gives her a way out she has to decide between giving away her planned out life or following her heart to Attar. The thing is that her heart want to go to another country just as bad as her body.
I really liked this book, so much that I would have loved if it was longer. Sayid and Chloe have an amazing chemistry, whether it was fighting or burning the pages (teheee) this is a couple that hold my attention during the whole book.
 The Sex scenes are unbelivable hot and very well executed, I had to use the A/C  and well, lets say my hubs is a very, very happy man. (Thank you Maisey Yates  *wide cheeky grin*) ... coof, coof... errr... Anyway here is my fav line of the book. At this point I was way beyond drooling over Sayid and after reading this well...
"Where you make your home, Ishall make mine. For without you there is no home. Your people are now my people, as mine are yours. Where you die I will die.And there they will bury me."
Where the hell, did I put that hand fan?...
OMG!!! I know right, he´s amazing, and hawt and sexy and his voice is just... *sights* yeah I´m that bad I could hear his voice, his accent I even smelled his scent. his Characterization was THAT good. Want to meet the guy I picture as Sayid??? check him out.
Yup, yup, he´s yummy I know. I just have one question...
¿Why can´t I find men like this in my country?...

Stranded together, their passions will run wild.
Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.
Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.
Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go. Show more Show less

"Gentleness she’d never noticed before in Max was evident in his eyes. She watched him curl his large hand over her much smaller one. Her heart beat so loudly in her ears she feared he might hear it. He brought her hand to his lips and kissed it. Fire roared in her blood, and her breath hitched. He turned her hand over and brushed a warm, firm kiss over her palm while they stared at each other. “I’d never put you in danger.”

here was supposed to go an excerpt but, due to the hawtness level, I could only post this small teaser, trust me when I say this baby is as erotic as it can be.

Want to know about me? April Angel (aka Milly Taiden) was born in the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. She grew up between New York, Florida and Massachusetts. Currently, she resides in New York City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy. She’s addicted to shopping for shoes, chocolate (but who isn’t?) and Dunkin Donuts coffee. A bookworm when she can get her hands on a good story, she loves reading all Mina Carter, Cynthia Eden and Dianne Duvall among others.
When I put my hands on this book I was expecting a sexy read, nothing more, noothing less, from the cover I gather that it was going to be hot, but I guess I didn´t understand how much until the plane crashes.
OMG!!!!this book is a very fast read and it´s way beyond sexy, the author didn´t hesitate to call things by their name, so rest assured that you wont find things like, "He touched me... there" but a real 100% accurate play by play of the events LOL!!!! you know "plug A goes into slot B" and so on =D
This book is not just a sexy read,is erotica plain and simple, the sexual chemistry is amazing and the plot is well executed. Even though I could predict most of the things that where going to happen It didn´t detract from the story and at the end it turned out that things wheren´t as predictable as I thought, meaning, that I had no freaking clue who the bad guy was LOL!!!!.
Kara and Max are one of the best couples I´ve layed eyes upon, they fit perfectly together and bring the best out of each other.
My only regret is that the book wasn´t longer, I could have stayed reading about Max for days and days.  I could have happily read about them trapped on that island for a week or a month LOL!!!
That scene on the shore was unforgettable.

Abby Taylor walked out on her irresistible husband three years ago. Now she has no choice but to return to Italy to ask him for a favor. To pay for her grandmother's heart operation she needs his money, but it comes with strings attached.
Conte Dante Lombardi has it all—an Italian villa, a successful family business, and a noble title. But he needs a child to carry on his legacy and time is running out. He also hopes to satisfy the desire Abby rouses in him.
As Abby uncovers why he’s in such a hurry for a child, she falls in love with him again … just as she realizes it might be impossible to keep her end of the deal.

This book is a really good read, once in a while I want to break free of my paranormal love and read something normal LOL!!!!

I’m always looking for romantic, sexy books to take my mind of off things and do a cleansing of sorts. The Reluctant Wife did just that.

This is a contemp.  About Abby a girl that married way to young thinking she had the fairytale every girl dreams of, only to realize that Dante was a not too charming prince after all and with only 19 years. She did the only thing she could think off she runs away hurt.

Dante is a full blooded business man, he loves his family above all else but thinks himself as a love less being. He needs to have a son in order to secure his family state and his desire for Abby makes her perfect woman for the job.

I loved the chemistry between the characters and the fact that this is a story about second chances and forgiveness made it even more perfect.

The story was predictable but very well written Dante is a very alpha character that sometimes seems cold and calculative but has a heart of gold, he´s sexy, gorgeous and pow chika bow wow HAWT!!!

This book is sexy as hell just think of this, she needs a huge amount of money and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the devil; in return for his money he wants Abby his wife even though they been separated for 3 years, too give him a son and well… dear good my laptop almost scorched reading about it.

Great contemporary romance if you ask me

My 2011 debut Regency historical, INVITATION TO RUIN, is a Nominee for Best First Historical, RT Reviewer's Choice Awards.

I'm a proud reader and writer of Romance! Any romance, but historical romance in particular, and the Regency period is my favorite. I live in Wellington, New Zealand and I'm one of five sisters - and I am a twin! So no surprise that my first book is about twins!

I grew up on a farm in the Wairarapapa until I was twelve and I love the country. My dream is to become a full time romance writer and live in a rural retreat in the beautiful, sunny Hawke's Bay on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. I am finally on the way with the sale of my first two books.

Growing up I loved reading and watching TV, mainly because I loved anything that challenged my imagination. I loved Enid Blyton's Famous Five and The Secret Seven or C.S. Lewis's Narnia series. My twin sister also loves stories and we would often put on plays for our parents. Telling a story is what attracts me to writing. Bringing characters, plots and places to life.

Now I spend my time immersing myself in love stories full of passion, desire and of course the happing ever after. But that's not to say they don't have a number of hurdles to overcome along the way.

In my stories I have the rich playboy who just happens to be a Lord of the realm, with the ahead of their time feminist, who bucks Society's conventions and gives the hero a run for his money.

In particular, I love the dark, tortured souls, who don't think they deserve love or are, like most men in my stories, scared of love. My heroes are strong, alpha males with tortured pasts. They need the love of a good woman to save them and my heroine's are up for the task. They are not, sit back and let men run their lives, women. They grab life, shake it, and mold it, and most of all never give up.

And of course lets not forget the villains. Creepy, very dangerous, often perverted but never undefeatable.
 Now don´tmiss the chance to read this amazing sexy as hell book, just remember this is an adult book, it contains lots and lots of scorching hot sex so if you are under aged,this isnot the book for you

Series: The Shadows Series, #1
Author: A. Sangrey Black
Genre: Paranormal, Erotica, Menage (m/m/f), BDSM, Vampire,
Publisher: Cobblestone Press
Words: Approx. 14,000
Book Description:
Calinda Byer is all assertiveness in her daytime life, but when it comes to the bedroom, she leaves her will at the door with her clothes. Her vampire Dom, Adam Straton, refuses to turn her until she has witnessed the darker side of immortality and the true depths of his sexuality -- including his male vampire lover.  A weekend at his country estate promises dark, twisted delights the likes of which Calinda could never have imagined. All she has to do is use the safe word, and she can return to the "normal" world alone. But will she?
About the A. Sangrey Black:
Alexia enjoys the darker side of entertainment, including literature from the classic gothic style to the modern horror novel, erotica and romance that walks in the shadows off the beaten path. She loves horror movies both psychological and gory, and nurses a fascination for and dedication to the rights and practices of alternative lifestyles. What two or more adults do in the privacy of their dungeon is her... rather THEIR business. Vampires are her great fictional (or are they?) love, but all things that hunt the night, human or otherwise, forever capture her imagination and demand that she tell their stories.

A denizen of the Adirondack Mountains of New York, there are plenty of legends, ghost stories, and creepy happenings in the deep forests and abandoned caves to keep her writing for the rest of her life.
A. Sangrey Black also writes more mainstream paranormal romance and urban fantasy as H.A. Fowler. She loves to hear from readers of both styles, so feel free to drop her a line or visit her blog or Facebook.
Here comes the juicy Excerpt
 “Are you certain you wish to go on?” he asked.

Calinda grinned in spite the horror-movie air and his grim demeanor and nodded. There were no shadows dark enough that would keep her from taking this journey with him. Nothing she wouldn’t do if he asked it of her, just as she knew he would, if he hadn’t already tasted all of her secrets.

Satisfied, Adam took her hand, pressed a small switch on the wall beside them, and led her
down a narrow set of stone stairs, now illuminated by a dim red light. The stairway curved sharply, and he was guiding her down and down forever, circling into the depths of who knew what. She had learned from experience that the border between the heavenly and hellish was very fine indeed. She liked it that way.

Calinda’s heart thundered, her stomach fluttering with nerves, and she relished each sensation, tucking it away in her memory like some women might keep tickets to a show she’d attended with her lover. She had been an adrenaline junkie since the day she was born. Instead of drugs, she far preferred driving fast cars, jumping out of airplanes, and dating ancient, sadistic vampires than pills or needles. This occasion, with its mysteries and uncertainties, was better than any shot of pure heroin straight into her system, and the vampire she loved was giving it to her. He had become so many things to her in the two years they’d been together, and adrenaline dealer had been one of the greatest of them from the moment they met.

She remembered with an electric shiver through her system the first moment when she realized what he was, when she invited him home knowing what he could do to her. The biggest charge of her life. She gave his hand a squeeze in thanks. No, she had no difficulty in taking this journey. There was only one thing that could be at the bottom of this staircase, spiraling them into the depths of the earth together: the darkness he kept talking about, made manifest. The deepest shadows inside him. She was so eager to see it she was already wet

Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle

Here is a small  Interview
Please tell us and our readers a little bit about yourself.
I’m a UK based author who writes mainly in the science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal genres, although I may break that rule from time to time. Apart from writing, my greatest passions also include fabric and stitching; I create bags, corsets and clothing in the vintage, retro and alternative style.
Describe your book series in a sentence to convince us to buy it.
Be prepared for a journey, an expedition that draws together fringe science, psychic powers, alternate dimensions, time travel, past lives, folklore, consciousness, conspiracy and ancient wisdom, in a soap opera for the soul. 
What was your inspiration behind ‘Seven Point Eight’?
It amalgamates all the things that interest me and that I’ve read about, including psychic powers, the universe, ancient wisdom and technology, quantum physics, mysticism, conspiracy, the universe. I wanted to create a highly ambitious series that encompasses life, the universe and everything, in an epic story revolving around five principal characters.
The concept revolves around visiting other worlds via the power of the mind, so you don’t need your physical body. Through consciousness alone, it’s possible to explore not only the universe, but your own spiritual heritage. The series involves a group of extraordinary people, and their quest for the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.
How many Chronicles will there be?
There are five in all. The First Chronicle came out about eighteen months ago, The Second Chronicle has just been released, and The Third Chronicle is scheduled for next year, no specific release day yet.
Each book will feature a main character on the cover, with the story involving them in a significant way. The first book depicted Tahra, as she is the key to beginning this whole journey in many ways, while the second one depicts Max, because I think his story arc is central to the action in the story, and links the character in a very dark and sinister way.
The Third Chronicle will feature Ava and in this book, her purpose and secrets will be revealed, as will her enemies and allies. I have something really wonderful planned for her, although it’ll change her life in ways she may regret. The Fourth Chronicle focuses on Paul to a large degree, because there’s a chunk of his life he hasn’t told us about, and it will be pretty explosive for the people concerned. Finally, The Fifth Chronicle concludes with the focus on Sam, his demons and dilemmas, plus, it wraps up all the story threads and mysteries running throughout the series.
I have some great story arcs lined up for all the characters, they’d better hold onto their hats!
What’s next after this?
In 2013, you can expect to see Seven Point Eight: The Third Chronicle, plus a soft sci-fi/ fantasy tale for Young Adults entitled ‘Hox’. You may also see an anthology of short stories, a novella for children, and a venture into screenwriting.
Why science fiction?
I like geeky science, but I also love the grand and epic scope that sci-fi offers. Speculative fiction really stretches the imagination and whole creative process, plus you can integrate all kinds of technology, while examining the moral aspects of it. There are many movies and TV series in this genre that remain favourites too, such as Star Wars, Contact, Star Trek, Star Gate, and Fringe.
From your writing, I’d say you're a believer of aliens/ other life-forms out in the vast expanse of space? Is that true?
Yes, it’s far too big a universe for us to be alone, that’s such a waste of space! I believe there’s a whole host of physical and non-physical life forms out there that we’re ignorant of. The universe is teeming with life at different levels.
The cover of the book is really awesome. Did you have any inputs on it?
I had a strong idea of what I wanted to achieve, although the difficulty lay in communicating that, so I highlighted some images that inspired me. Colour is an important element, as each book cover will reflect a different energy. The Second Chronicle uses red to convey action, passion, determination, but also anger and ambition. It’s also the colour of the base chakra.
If your book got turned into a movie, who would you select as your actors?
Seven Point Eight is written in the style of a TV series, with a complex and epic plot full of numerous story threads. If I had rich pickings, I’d cast Michael Fassbender as Dr Paul Eldridge, Henry Cavill as Max Richardson (with a bit of age added), Dianna Agron as Ava, and Nicholas Hoult as Sam. The cover girl for The First Chronicle is New Mexico actress, Monique Candelaria, and I’d love her to take the role.
Have you based any of your characters on someone you know, or real events in your own life?
No, the characters and story are products of my imagination, and the research I carried out for the underpinning science in the book. There may be elements of my own personality entangled in the characters somewhere, and influences from people I’ve met or known in my life. However, I never set out to encapsulate any one person in each character.
Who do you admire most in your life?
I admire people who follow their own path, regardless of what society thinks. It takes a lot of courage to do what you know to be right, rather than just following the crowd. Strong and successful women also inspire me, and people who stand up to the shortfalls of the system. Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, and The Occupy Movement stand against the immoral and greedy nature of our governments and banks. I believe in liberty, creativity, and spirituality.
Who has been your greatest inspiration from other writers, if any?
I think there have been many influences throughout my childhood, and as I moved through adulthood.  Initially, I always loved The Narnia Chronicles and had a geeky passion for Star Wars, covering both the fantasy and science fiction genres.  Through my teenage years, I was an avid reader of Stephen King books, although some of works could be considered as ‘drawn out’, as the market is in favour of tighter plot and pacing.  He can be a bit hit and miss.
More recently, I would say Star Trek, Lost and such programmes encapsulate the storylines and human interest themes that I like. One of my favourite films is ‘Contact’ with Jodie Foster, and in my first book, there are a few tiny little tributes to it. Screenplay writing is a major interest of mine, and at the moment, I’m studying the pilot scripts for Lost, Fringe and V. ‘Seven Point Eight’ would make a fantastic TV series.
When did you know you would be a writer?
I was always known for writing stories when I was at school. The teachers would read them out to the class and at age 12, I expanded an English class assignment to a novella about my class being stranded on a desert island after the cruise ship sank. It was rather Lost-esque, with giant rabbits and aliens, but the class mostly enjoyed all the interactions between the characters, as they were the stars!
Since then, I’ve written a few more novel length books, but I wanted my stories to have maturity so I waited until I was much older before I put one out. I think it’s best to write with the wisdom of experience, of relationships and of people. It creates stronger characters and enriched interactions between them. So in conclusion, I think writing has always been in my blood.
Marie, was the research for the novel huge or hard?
Once I’ve highlighted the needs of the plot, I tend to take notes from the books and web pages I’ve read, indicating how it fits in with my story. Smaller details and any location research are often researched as I progress through the book, reflecting where I need more detail. It can be quite difficult to capture the feeling of a country or city if you’ve never been there, but I find there’s plenty of information online, such as tourism sites and YouTube.
What are the best aspects of writing?
In many ways, I’d say the second draft is the most pleasurable, in that you’re not faced with a totally blank page. At this stage, you can really lay down the more emotional aspects of the story, such as the character’s thoughts and feeling in each situation. It’s where you really cut the diamond. I enjoy writing both action sequences and relationship interactions, one because you get to create dangerous and exciting situations where you can kill characters in highly imaginative ways, and the other because you can really touch the soul of the reader, creating joy or heartbreak.
What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Like many writers, I find sections of a book where it doesn’t flow so easily and when you’re staring at a blank page, it can be frustrating. The final read through can make you want to gouge your eyes out, so it’s handy to have something else to work on for a bit.
Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?
Most of The Second Chronicle, I wrote at home although in the spring and summer, I get cabin fever. There’s a great little tea and coffee shop in Nottingham, where I can plug in my laptop and enjoy a cultured and chic atmosphere. When I need to get out of the house, I take everything with me.
It is often said that if you can write a short story, you can write anything. How true do you think this is?
A short story is a brief concept, the pacing, plot and character development differs greatly from a novel, in that the it’s very concise. Character development is often quite superficial because there’s no time to present much of a back story. A novel builds the plot and character through a longer series of scenes, and it’s much harder to correctly pace and present each element of the story. There’s so much more to keep a handle of. A screenplay is different yet again, as it has a specific formula, plus, it’s much tighter. It relies on a lot of show as opposed to tell, everything must be styled very visually, using action and dialogue. A stage play or radio script is another matter, something I don’t write.
Any advice to aspiring writers?
Don’t rush; craft your story with care, patience and above all, passion. Pass it to a variety of people to read in beta form, and ideally one or two people you don’t know very well, so you can get a more unbiased opinion. Take on feedback and appraise your work with honesty. Then after it’s published, be prepared to work extremely hard promoting it.  See it as a journey and enjoy the ride.
Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
I’ve always been a staunch advocate of paperback books as you can curl up on the sofa or in bed with them, but e-readers such as the Kindle make an excellent case for the digital age. E-books are often a lot cheaper, so you can afford to buy more reading material. I prefer my Kindle for fiction, but still use paperbacks for research or reference.
What are your thoughts on book trailers?
I’m not sold on them, as many just look homemade using PowerPoint. I think you can end up marketing the trailer instead of the book.
Do you write under a pen name?
Not at the moment, although I intend to write more general fiction for women under a pen name, to keep my genres separate.
Do you ever write in your PJ’s?
Of course! Writing feels so cosy in a pair of fleecy PJs!
What are your pet peeves?
Poor spelling and terrible grammar. I hate it when people keep writing ‘gawjuss’ instead of ‘gorgeous’, and ‘your’ instead of ‘you’re’.
Stupid people becoming famous for no reason seriously bugs me too. We should celebrate each other for contributing something of value, not for being dumb.
Cats or dogs?
I like the independence of cats but also the loyalty of dogs.
White wine or red?
White, or rose. Red wine is too rough :-/
Coffee or tea?
Coffee in the morning and late afternoon, tea in between or at night.
Vanilla or chocolate ice cream?
Chocolate :-p However, I prefer the really extravagant Ben & Jerry flavours.
What do you normally eat for breakfast?
Porridge, with a mug of coffee.
Laptop or desktop for writing?
Laptop. It keeps you warm in the winter!
If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you?
I wouldn’t want to be deserted with anyone famous, their vanity, superficiality and ego would annoy me so much I’d punch them, and they wouldn’t be able to do anything useful anyway. Give me a soldier, musician, and comedian any day. The first to build shelter and hunt, the second for the soul, and the third for laughter.
