ABOUT SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:
A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series….
She was the one who got away…
Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice.
Easier said than done…
Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him – maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years.
But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past.
And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present…
SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is book one in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each book will follow a new couple.
KERRY’S 3.5 Star3 REVIEW
“My friend Ally showed me a video she saw on Facebook,” Shannon began. “It’s this clip of a girl who grinds on her boyfriend in public while his hand is under her skirt, and they don’t even try to hide that he’s fingering her and getting her off.”
“I like getting you off,” Brent said with a naughty glint in his brown eyes.
“You cannot resist segueing back to dirty talk when I’m telling you a story.”
“I’m so sorry,” he said, placing his palms together. “The story was about a guy making a girl come. Forgive me for thinking about making you come. It’s only my favorite thing in the entire world to do.”
She shot him a tell me more look.
“It’s a hobby I once practiced a few times a day,” he added. “One I’m very interested in taking up again.”
A ribbon of warmth spread through her chest, both from the suggestion of one of her favorite activities, too, but also from the way he was so quick on his toes, so fast with a joke. The man had always made her laugh.
“Anyway, back to the video. So the funny part is they had no clue they’d been caught on camera, even though they were totally obvious. They thought they were being quiet and sneaky when he was trying to make her come.”
“I could make you come quietly,” he said with an easy shrug of his shoulder. “I can make you come loudly, too. I can make you come in pretty much any way.”
She scoffed. Not because it was untrue, but because he was so damn sure of himself. “Confident much?”
“Yeah, I am. I have the track record to prove it. You’re pretty much the only class I aced in college.”
She laughed, looking down at her lap. He was too much sometimes. “Straight As, Brent?”
“Hell no. Higher. I earned A-pluses across the board in your pleasure.”
She rolled her eyes. “You’re relentless.”
He leaned forward across the table, flashing her that cocky grin she’d loved so much. “When it comes to delivering multiple orgasms for you, yes. Relentless is precisely what I am.”

Since Hadleigh, Melody and Bex—the best of best friends—entered into a marriage pact, two of them have found (and married) the men of their hearts. But Bex doesn’t think she’ll be as fortunate as the others. Her own first love died years ago in a faraway war, and Bex has lost hope for a happy marriage of her own. She concentrates on her business, a successful chain of fitness clubs, instead.
Then, when single father Tate Calder comes to Mustang Creek with his two sons in tow, who befriend Bex’s eight-year-old nephew, she and the handsome, aloof newcomer are constantly thrown together. But is the marriage season over? Or can a man with doubts about love be the right husband for a woman who wants it all?
Nicole’s 4 Star Review
For Bex Stuart, successful entrepreneur and gym goddess, first love equaled only love until the day that her first love died while serving his country. It was at that moment Bex began to wonder if she could ever find that kind of love again, or if it was even worth the risk. With a successful business to run, a nephew that needs her more than ever and best friends having babies, she really doesn’t have the time or energy to question her love life (or lack thereof) all that much. When Tate Calder moves to town with his two boys, events and opportunities occur that bring Bex and Tate together again and again. It isn’t all that long before sparks start to fly between them and Bex is forced to look inside herself and see if she wants to take the risk and fall for Tate.
Linda Lael Miller doesn’t hold the title of Queen of Western Romance for no reason. Her abilities to paint the picture of life in the West and invite the reader to become part of the culture of the West are amazing. All of the characters in this book are relatable and believable. There is way more to each of them than meets the eye, and that’s what keeps you reading. They are loyal, genuine, vulnerable, strong and true. You can’t get much better than a cast of characters that all leave their mark on the story and the reader. While The Marriage Season is a stand-alone novel, and can be read without reading the other two books in the series, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it. While the story is all Bex’s, there are elements and events that are referred to that I wish I’d had the backstory to. That said, The Marriage Season is a great read, perfect for losing yourself in and escaping for just a moment or two.
About the Author
Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold FLETCHER’S WOMAN in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
Livia Chadwick is a photographer by day and a self-proclaimed rock slut by night.
Her dating life is a lackluster parade of evasive jerks and
her boss is an unrelenting nightmare of a human being.
What else can a girl do but rent a beach house with her girlfriends
And blow off a little steam every weekend?
But hey, she’s from Jersey. Barhopping down the shore all season is sort of mandatory.
All is going according to plan… until she meets Jack.
Jack Tanner is a contractor-turned-musician in a small-town cover band
suddenly thrust into the limelight.
He’s already had enough of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, and groupies have never been his thing.
Then again… there’s a gorgeous brunette in the audience tonight, checking him out with the most incredible green eyes he’s ever seen.
She’s looking for a fling.
He’s looking for forever.
It’s gonna be one helluva summer.
Set in the summer of 1995, DOWN THE SHORE takes the reader on a tour through some of the Jersey shore’s hottest hot spots over one, sleepless, flannel-clad summer.
It’s a look back to a time when the music was groundbreaking, the rock clubs were king,
and bar bands ruled the world.
***Not recommended for anyone under the age of 18, and/or any readers who are slut-shamers, guido sympathizers, beach haters or anti-music. Other people who should walk away from this book immediately: Readers who have sticks up their butts about offensive language, those who don’t like detailed sex scenes in their stories, idiots who think “Jersey Shore” has anything to do with actual New Jerseyans, and anyone who can’t appreciate the mother-effing nineties.***
READ WHEN YOU’RE IN THE MOOD FOR:
Light, sexy, funny, romantic, and nostalgic.
I have to be honest…I have been on a T.Torrest binge this past week! 4 books in 6 days.
I read the Remember when series in 3 days…yup 3 books in 3 days. I HAD to read Down the shore ASAP! First of all, I am fangirlling a bit over T.Torest. So mad I didn’t read these before the Author signing in Atlantic City a few weeks ago because I would have totally been stalking her!
So, we met Liv and Jack in the Remember When series but this book is all about how/when they met!
I think I may love these book so much because I am a product of the 80’s and 90’s and hearing these characters reference my teenage and younger years just brings a smile to my face! They all graduated in 1990 (or near that). I am a proud graduate…CLASS OF 87’ IN THE HOUSE!! I am a Philly (suburbs) girl but the music Liv listened to, was what I listened to (maybe add a little Hooters music in with it ←——local Philly band).
These two just made me smile. I loved that Liv just wanted to be carefree and have some fun and Jack wanted something a little bit more. Most books have it the other way around. It gave it a nice twist. They took their time, got to know each other and really KNEW each other before they jumped in. We had the chance to watch this relationship blossom and it was so sweet and nice and yup VERY H.O.T. at times. The cast of characters made this couple who they were and such an important part of the entire story. No one was a friend who just was there, they all were such an important part of each others lives, it was just such a great coming of age story with a few twists and turns.
If you are from Jersey or Philly especially, you NEED to read these book. If you were a teenager in the late 80’s and 90’s you need to read this book. And if you are only in your 20’s o 30’s read these books, get your YouTube app going and read away and listen to the music that is referenced in the book.
On that note…what a blast from the past…The Banana Splits theme song!! Omg, my husband and I were cracking up listening to and we remembered it the moment it began to play!!
Jack will have you swooning…
“I was waiting for you before I even met you. And finally, one night, there you were. With your witchy green eyes and you perfect pouty mouth”

Every life has a different path full of sharp turns, smooth curves, and steep drop offs.
Hollis Murphy has a plan—college, career, boyfriend, love, marriage, family. A predictable, normal life. She’s on track until an outside force causes her to crash and burn. They call it an accident, because that’s the only word they know to explain what happens to her. It helps everyone move on with their lives, except for Hollis. She holds on to the belief that she’s been targeted for a reason.
Risher Stevenson is intelligent, caring, sweet, and the hottest boy Hollis has ever laid eyes on. He fits perfectly into her original plan for a normal life. Everyone loves him.
Benton Daniels is intelligent, caring, sweet, and the bravest boy Hollis has ever met. He doesn’t fit into her life but gives it purpose and makes it extraordinary. Everyone hates him.
One is bullied. One is tormented. All are judged. How will it STOP?
Nicole’s 4 Star Review
How do you explain a book that is so much more than just words? How do you explain the depths of emotion that have you from start to finish? I’m not really sure, but this is my attempt to explain why I loved Stop! by Alison G. Bailey.
Stop! takes place during that pivotal freshman year of college where re-inventing yourself or finding yourself are finally within reach. Independence is at your fingertips. For Hollis, Risher and Benton, the opportunity to explore themselves and the world around them is critical to their success. Each of them has a physical challenge that they must endure and similar reactions from society that they must rise above. It isn’t easy. All three have insecurities, doubts and fears that are never far from the surface. They come together through a series of events that are tough to imagine and difficult to read.
I realize that I’m being a little too vague here, but I can’t seem to say more without risking spoilers. Just know that the challenges and emotions are real, and that just being witness to them is tough. My emotions ran the gamut from giggles to anger, then disgust and pain. Thank goodness, I read this in a day as taking another day to ride the emotional roller coaster that Alison Bailey created would’ve been too much! Though Stop! is a work of fiction, what happens in it REALLY happens. I think that that is why I loved this book. The story is just a story, but the themes that provide the story’s foundation are so very real. It’s that authenticity that grabs you and makes you stop!!

“Name?” she said, impatiently.
I was so flustered that for a second I’d forgotten who I was. “Hollis Murphy.”
She scribbled something on a spreadsheet and handed me a packet with my name and the number two hundred ten typed out on the front sticker, which I assumed was my room number.
In a flat bored voice, she said, “Everything you need to know is in the packet. Should you have any additional questions or needs after reading the information, please ask your RA. Have a productive semester. Next!”
Clutching the envelope to my chest, my gaze shifted back down, and I walked quickly out of the office.
As I turned the corner, a loud deep woot! jerked my attention down the hall. I took one step before crashing full force into something solid and warm. Stumbling back, I dropped the envelope. Once my balance returned, my eyes focused on a gray T-shirt with cut off sleeves, stretched across broad shoulders. When I glanced down in search of my envelope, I couldn’t help but spot the narrow hips and round ass covered in black basketball shorts. As I squatted to pick up the envelope, a tanned forearm came into view. My gaze roamed up to find the arm was covered in bulging muscles.
“Oh god, I’m so . . . sor…ry,” I stammered, my cheeks heating with embarrassment.
“Here ya go,” a deep voice said.
Reaching for the envelope, my gaze inadvertently shot up to the warmest green eyes ever created. His dark brown hair was cut short on the sides, longer on top, and tousled. The perfect amount of scuff peppered his strong jawline, with deep dimples framing a sexy lopsided smile. The air was immediately sucked from my lungs. He wasn’t just hot, he was boy band hot.
A deep chuckle drifted down before I realized he had stood up and was extending his hand to me.
Oh boy! I get to touch him.
I slipped my hand into his and felt an immediate jolt of electricity. The muscles in his arm twitched. He felt it too.
“Thank you,” I said, as he helped me up.
“I’m Risher Stevenson.”
He was actually introducing himself to me.
It had become a habit not to look directly at anyone, especially a stranger. I automatically angled my head down and to the left, to hide the messed-up side of my face. But those green eyes locked me in place.
“Nice to meet you Hollis Murphy.”
“Sorry again about running into you. I need to do a better job at watching where I’m going.”
The tip of his tongue slipped between his lips before they formed into a slight smirk. Just as he was about to speak, his name came barreling down the hallway.
“Rish! Get your ass down here. We’ve got a ton of boxes to haul in.” A blond-haired guy was standing at the end of the hall.
“I gotta go finish helping my friends move in.”
Risher took three steps before turning back toward me. “Don’t do too good of a job.”
My eyebrows squished together in confusion.
“At watching where you’re going. I hate to think I won’t get rump bumped again.”
He winked before jogging away.
I Sasquatched those shoulders, those hips, and that ass all the way down the hall.

The ride of her life . . .
Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy—until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa’s pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.
Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he’s the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa’s acting, it’s clear she’s falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker’s secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa—or ride away forever . .
My Review 4 stars
This book started incredibly strong. Carson Steele, aka Joker grew up in a horrendous environment. Despite his tragic past, the man he grows into is a beautiful, strong, full of heart type of man. I loved him. He embodies so much of what I love an alpha character to have.
He not a dick.
I’m a huge Kristen Ashley fan and sometimes her males can come off like dicks, he is not one. (This is brutally honest, but the attitude works for all of her men) Joker may be up there with Hawk Delgado, Tack Allen and Luke. Just saying, Joker is an awesome man.
This is Carissa’s story of a second chance at romance. I enjoyed her and how she was honest with Joker. She doesn’t sugar coat what’s going on with her. She lays her feelings out there and it’s refreshing.
I do wish the pace moved faster. I was full steam ahead with this at first and then after a bit, I slowed down because the pace slowed down. It also felt a tad anticlimactic.
The love story here is so beautiful, that despite me wishing it was a bit shorter and things moved a bit faster I really loved it.
Kristen Ashley writes great love.
Q&A with Kristen Ashley
Definitely beginning. Oh yes, absolutely the beginning! It’s also the best part of reading a romance, when the hero and heroine meet, the dance they start to dance, getting to know each other, the banter or the tension or the passion.
Don’t get me wrong, I dig a delicious ending. I am dedicated to providing the best epilogue I can give to any book because I want my readers to go away with a **sigh,** feeling entirely certain the hero and heroine are living a happily ever after.
But the meeting…and then those early moments…love it. Love!
Language is dynamic. There are no rules. You can do anything you want with language. We do not write like Beaowulf. Language is ever-evolving. So don’t get stuck on the rules. Just write.
In the style of his mentor, although Carissa can cook, Joker does most of the cooking…and gets very good at it!
There’s a little bit of me in nearly every heroine I write. I do that to give them a basis in reality so that (hopefully!) readers can identify with them. So when I get this question, it’s more, which of my heroines am I least like. And those would be Sylvie fromCreed and Ally from Rock Chick Revolution. And thus Sylvie and Ally would be the heroines I would most wish to be more like—because they’re badass and fearless.
Next up is an independently published title, the finale of my ’Burg series, Hold On, the story of Garrett Merrick and Cher Rivers. I hope to have that out by the end of summer, early autumn. Then readers will be getting more Chaos with High and Millie’s story told in Walk Through Fire which will release on October 27. After that, I haven’t decided. But I must since I’m starting a book on Monday…I just don’t know which one it’ll be!
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better
Rivers Edge Book 4
By Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Nate Stevens loves three things: Work, Family, Women. In that order. Having absolutely no desire to follow in three of his siblings’ footsteps by settling down, Nate lives for his work as a firefighter. That’s why his chance meeting with Lia leaves him unsettled like never before. There’s just something about the beautifully shy and reserved woman that he can’t walk away from.
Run. Hide. Keep moving. That’s exactly what Lia Walker has done for the last nine months. Escaping from her past, Lia continues to move from place to place before finding herself in the small town of Rivers Edge, Missouri. Following a chance encounter with her new boss’ brother, Nate, which leaves Lia feeling confused and vulnerable for the first time in months, Lia has to make a decision: to run or to stay.
When pasts are finally exposed, Nate and Lia find themselves at a crossroads. Nate will do anything to protect Lia from her past, but the question remains: Will Lia let him? When Lia’s past finally catches up with her, will running be the only way to protect the ones they love most in this world?
The smell of bacon and coffee wakes me from the best night of sleep I’ve ever had. Muscles I didn’t even know existed are screaming their protest as I stretch against the cool sheets. The other side of the mattress where Nate slept mere hours ago is vacant, but the smells coming from the kitchen tell me he isn’t too far away.
My mind fills with memories of Nate waking me up in the very early morning. He was gentle as he worshiped my body, bringing me to orgasm no less than twice that time, too. My body is singing as I climb out of bed and reach for a shirt. Nate’s shirt from last night is thrown on the end of the bed along with all of the clothes we were both wearing yesterday, so I slide the big shirt over my head and walk into the hall to the bathroom. The shirt still smells deliciously like Nate. It’s all musky and rich with just a hint of sweat. I can’t help but run my nose along the cotton material as I inhale deeply yet again.
After using the bathroom and brushing my teeth, I head out to the kitchen to see what kind of deliciousness Nate has cooked up. My stomach growls loudly as I turn the corner and stop dead in my tracks. The sight before me is so damn sexy that I can’t even laugh at how comical it is.
Nate stands at my stove, frying bacon, and wearing nothing but my white apron. And I mean nothing but my apron. The ties are wrapped around his lean waist and tied around his amazing lower back. Muscles move and strain as he works the tongs, flipping the bacon.
Nate’s back is a-freaking-mazing! There is no other word to describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life. I had no clue that definition and muscles like that existed. The tribal designed tattoo spread across his shoulder blades is dark with hard lines and looks so astounding stretched across his taut muscles.
But the muscles of his ass are what hold my attention right now. I wish I had a quarter because I’m pretty sure I could bounce it off his rear and get some serious air. Below his butt are the most well-defined, muscled thighs and calves I’ve ever seen. They scream power as he stands there in front of my stove.
I will never be able to wear that apron again. The mental image I will carry with me for the rest of my life of Nate wearing it this morning is something I will never, ever forget. It’ll be one of the happiest memories I will cherish as I continue to move from place to place, searching for the life I know is out there. One that makes me feel safe and sound. One that is so very close to how I feel with Nate.
He moves towards the skillet, grabs the spatula, and flips what appears to be French toast. I have died and gone to heaven. I don’t know when it happened, but there is no way this is actually happening in real life.
“Hey,” he says with a huge grin and sparkling eyes, breaking me from the trance of my private thoughts.
“Huh?” I ask, wondering how long he’s been talking to me and I’ve been staring at his bare ass.
“Enjoying the view?” he asks with another hint of laughter.
“I never thought my apron would look so good,” I reply with pinked cheeks.
“Well, bacon grease isn’t something you want splattering in this region,” he says waving a hand at his white apron covered package. A package that is thickening and saluting me before my lust-filled eyes.
“Breakfast first, beautiful,” Nate says with a smirk, drawing my gaze back up to his handsome face.
“Are you sure?” I ask, walking towards him and stopping right in front of him. I run my hands up his bare chest and along his well-defined shoulders.
Nate clears his throat before replying, “Yes. You need food.” He leans forward and kisses me square on the lips. “And energy for what’s going to happen as soon as I take my shirt back,” he says with a wink.

I’m a book nerd turned writer who loves the ‘Happily Ever After’ mixed with a bit of suspense, drama, and the occasional cliffhanger! My love of books started me on my writing journey. I began writing my first book in July 2012 and since that time I have created 2 series. The first series ‘The Reunion Series’ debuted in November 2012 and two books followed. My new series ‘The Shore Series” debuted in March 2014 and claimed Best Selling status shortly after the release of the first book. There will be 6 Shore Series books in all. I’m also the author of the Romantic Comedy, 39 & Holding. I live in Philadelphia with my adoringly handsome husband, and pretty cute kids if I may say so myself. You can always find me with the Kindle glued to my hands or in my car with the music turned up while
embarrassing my children with my mad car dancing skills.

VIOLET THINGS by Callie Hart
You’re never really out until you’re dead. That’s what the mob bosses, gunrunners and car thieves of Seattle will tell you, anyway.
Zeth Mayfair, ex mafia enforcer, has other ideas. Since falling for Sloane, he’s managed to turn her life upside down. Now, he’s determined to give her a stable, happy and, most importantly, safe life. If that means he has to sleep with one eye open and one hand on a shotgun, then that’s what he’ll do.
Mason Reeves is just looking for a way to take care of his sick sister. Since their mother left, things have been hard, and they’re only getting harder. Prescription meds don’t come cheap, and working as an auto mechanic only pays so well. If he wants to give Millie the life she deserves, he’s going to have to earn it with his fists. And who better to teach him how to fight than the guy who took down the biggest gangster in Seattle?
You can try to get out…
You can try to be good…
You can steer clear of trouble…
But it’s only a matter of time before trouble comes looking for you.
*** Zeth and Sloane are back alongside a cast of new characters in the new Chaos & Ruin series ***

DAWN’S 5 STAR REVIEW
Another 5 Smokin’ Stars for me!!
Zeth, Sloane, Michael and the infamous black duffel bag are back!! I could not be more elated!! As soon as I started reading, it was like meeting up with old friends. Callie Hart has done it again. She sucked me in, got me hooked and left me desperate for more!!
In Violent Things, Zeth and Sloane have started to create a life for themselves, away from his past and his old “business.” But once your in his line of work, can you ever truly get out? Is it possible to live a normal life? Well, it seems they aren’t out of the woods just yet…. Zeth may be playing nice, but he’s still his bad ass self. Callie continues to keep him true to form (thank you). The man oozes sex, power, danger and now LOVE. He may not say the words, but it’s in everything he does. Him and Sloane heated up the pages in this book. That magical duffel bag made quite a few appearances, that left me flushed and panting. You can feel their devotion and loyalty for one another. It is so intense and unwavering. There was the always present feeling of lurking danger, mystery and suspense. Their story continued, but Callie also introduced us to new fascinating characters. A brother and sister, Mason and Millie. Mason is all heart. He seems smart, resourceful and courageous. He will do whatever it takes to survive and take care of his baby sister. They haven’t had it easy, especially with no one to rely on but each other. I found them so endearing, I just wanted to take them home with me. Looks like our boy Zeth has taken an interest in Mason. I can not wait to see where this goes and learn more about them….
Callie you are one evil lady, you gave us just enough of a taste… such a tease! I am so eager and a tad bit scared to see where Zeth and Sloane’s journey will go next. I just pray you go easy on us!! My heart is still fragile from the last book. I will never get tired of reading about Zeth & Sloane. Keep going with it lady and THANK YOU for giving them back to us!!
