Luke Boone doesn't know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it-the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he's finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set-one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it's not exactly legal, Luke's never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain. 

 Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game-at only twenty-six years old, she's one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington D.C. major crime unit, and she's just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the west coast's most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she'll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle's footsteps. 

 As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she'll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she'll even want to.



Screwing the customers . . .” Miller grumbles, pushing the filing cabinet shut with a loud metal bang.

Only the pretty ones.” And she is that. It wasn’t until she lifted her sunglasses that she had my undivided attention. Those big, blue eyes up against an olive complexion are striking. I wouldn’t have guessed Italian. Mediterranean, definitely.

Exotic, dark-haired, killer body—my type exactly.

“You’re going to lose business for the garage.”

“Relax. I wasn’t the one fishing.” And there was definite fishing on her part. For a long while there, I wasn’t sure I wanted to take the bait. Everything about her—her upscale style, her expensive car, her cool demeanor—says she’s my kind of girl, and therein lies the problem. My kind of girl is good for one thing, and it’s not having lunch over at the food carts of Portland. Or conversation, in general.

Give those kinds of girls more and suddenly they become work, and money. Endless streams on both accounts. Rust warned me about them years ago. Thank God I haven’t tumbled into any of their traps. Even Priscilla, my fallback lay, who I consider a friend, knows exactly where we stand in terms of our “relationship” and that I don’t have the kind of money she wants—even she will occasionally try her hand at sucking more out of me. A new bracelet, cash for rent, a tank of gas for the BMW that her last sugar daddy handed her . . .

But Rain was cute today, in a feisty way, humoring me by taking a bite of that sandwich that she was so obviously not going to enjoy. Her nose crinkling up at the sight of it. Her witty little insult. The way she hung back, waiting, hoping for a chance to see me again but not willing to come right out and ask after already being so forward earlier. Girls like Priscilla would have kept pushing. But Rain obviously has some self-respect.
And when she started walking out of the office, I couldn’t help myself.


I punch her number into my phone so I can call her after work. If I’m lucky, I’ll also have her naked and tangled in my sheets later tonight.

And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…

Burying Water

Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** iBooks ** Kobo ** IndieBound

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away. 

 Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him? 

 Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried. 

 The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

COVER REVEAL: Doves for Sale by Lila Felix


“Love isn’t crazy. Love isn’t a degree of insanity. Love is sanity at its purest. It forces your soul to make a rational choice—a choice to make another person’s happiness your priority, to allow them access to your heart and soul. Letting Ezra go was choosing to love him. Letting him go was the best way you knew how to choose his joy over your own. I can see it in both of you. This love isn’t one that will go down without a fight.”

Seven months is a long time to wait.
Ezra has three goals. There is no choice. He has to get better, for himself and for Aysa.
Except, his best friend Roman has moved in in his absence. He’s given Ezra’s girl a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and a fighting chance at winning her heart.
Aysa knows who her heart belongs to.
But loving Ezra is no easy task.
Ezra never promised simple, he only promised his heart.
Aysa has two paths in front of her, one carries peace and one carries a love that never ends.

Coming March 20th!

 Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch... Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave? God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch. I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience. My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups. But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

00  Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

BLOG TOUR: Dream of Me by Quinn Loftis


Welcome everyone!!! I am so happy to have you here on my stop for the DREAM OF ME blog tour...
Such an amazing book and don't just believe me...Check it all out below...
Make sure you enter the GIVEAWAYs at the end...

Since the dawn of time, Brudair, otherwise known as the Sandman to the world, has faithfully lived out his purpose, faithfully performed his duties. He has never questioned his lot among the immortals, until now, until her. Sarah Serenity Tillman, a consummate beauty both inside and out, is a high school senior five months from her graduation. She has great plans, dreams of leaving the small town of her childhood behind her forever. But destiny has other plans, and it’s the Sandman’s job to make sure those plans are fulfilled.

The tall muscular Sandman, known as Dair to his friends, dressed in black, wrapped in shadows, is more than a myth. And he has a job to do. His very existence makes him a creature of the night, because dreams, (yes the legends got that part right), were indeed his specialty. But his purpose was more than just weaving dreams for sleeping children. No, his dreams were made to influence, made to ensure that certain special individuals, those individuals who would change the course of history, actually accepted their chosen destiny.
Little does Serenity know that she is Dair’s next assignment. And the dream that he weaves for her, if she follows its influence, will change the course of, not only her life, but possibly the whole of history as well. But she isn’t the only one being influenced. The beauty inside of her was weighing on the Sandman, lighting up the darkness that was his constant companion. Her light was warmth, it was life, and he didn’t understand how he had survived the previous millennia without it.
The Sandman was indeed greater than anything humans had ever imagined, and his purpose was vital to the course of history. So what happens when the weaver of dreams gets so distracted by a mere human that he ignores his own duties in the immortal realm? How can an immortal who was never meant to have a mate, join a young woman in her destiny without irrevocably changing the lives of millions and potentially altering history in a way the Creator never intended?

So, I was curious...and I wanted to know what Quinn Loftis chose the Sandman...So I asked...Here is her reply to this intriguing question...



Why the Sandman?

So basically I've been wracking my brain for a storyline that hasn't been beaten to death. I mean I'll never stop loving my werewolves regardless of how overdone they are, but when I decided to do a new series I wanted to do something different. So I started looking at characters in myths and legends that hadn't been really hit on. The Sandman is one that seems to only be done in horror books and movies. I decided that I could somehow make him sexy and significant and maybe bring him out from legend to truth. He just really seemed like an intriguing character and I truly hope I've done him justice. 

Totally cool and I think she has done a FABULOUS job...check out my review in a few to see what I thought of her new series...




Quinn lives in beautiful NW Arkansas with her husband, 2 sons, Doberman and cat (who thinks she is a ninja in disguise). She is beyond thankful that she has been blessed to be able to write full time and hopes the readers know how much all of their support means to her. Some of her hobbies include reading, exercising, crochet, and spending time with family and friends. She gives all credit of her success to God because he gave her the creative spirit and vivid imagination it takes to write.

    


See the trailer




I find it such an honor to be able to read anything by Quinn Loftis...and when I saw she had this new book coming out AND it was about the Sandman, I have to admit...I was very curious as to how she was going to write a story around this mythical being.
Well...never underestimate Quinn Loftis is how I need to start this...
As I had no idea of what to expect when I opened up to the pages ahead of me...She completely drew me in with such an epically beautiful story.  
Do YOU believe you could fall in love with the Sandman?? Well..get ready ladies...Dair, aka the Sandman, will totally make you melt...The way he speaks and I don't mean the way Serenity feels when she hears is voice...I mean in the eloquence of his speech.  He speaks in mannerisms that truly capture your heart.  It is mesmerizing and I wish more men spoke like that to this day.
But, that doesn't encompass all of what this story is.
I thought it would solely be about a love story of Serenity and Dair but OH MY WORD...it was so much more than that...
Dream of Me has touched my heart in so many ways...I seriously don't think that I could truly capture the exact feelings that I have walked away with from reading this tale.
I believe I experienced so much...I was filled with laughter, joy, anger, and sadness...I was holding my breath at what I thought would come to pass and as I drew to the end of the book..My fear won.  There are things happening in this world that is magical and spiritual.  The good and bad are fighting an endless battle and Dream of Me taps in to all that so we can sample the power of our Creator and the wonderful beings that are around us everyday...
Thank you Quinn Loftis for such a breath-taking tale.  I am so eager to see what book 2 holds and I can't wait to see how the love of Dair and Serenity grows....
Highly recommend you read this book and it definitely is one of my top reads of the year so far!!

Becoming Rain teaser 1


After reading Burying Water, which by the way was sooooo freaking awesome, I wasn't really sure how in the world KA Tucker was going to write Luke Boone's story.
I mean, if you read Burying Water, then you know he had a few short comings and that also kept me from just warming up to him from the start.
BUT..he did have redeeming qualities AND through it all...he just has that deep down good ole boy heart.
Does that mean he always makes the right decisions??
Bahahaha!!! That would be a huge NO...which brings us to this amazing book...Becoming Rain.
We start this intriguing tale by meeting Rain Martines, aka Clara Bertelli.  Undercover cop and making her sights to climb the success ladder.  That is what she is looking at...Bring down whoever it is in her way to make sure she has a spotless and impressive arrest record...
BUT...this assignment has opened her up to a whole new world of going to extremes to get her perpetrators. Now...as she meets Luke, she finds that there is always more than meets the eye...And everything she may have read in a file doesn't always fit what she sees right in front of her...
I absolutely loved the tale that KA Tucker weaved here.  She caused me to question so much.  The lines of morality are blurred and it makes you dive down deep to see what you would do if you were in the exact same position.  Love can cause you to make choices that others can't understand...But are they the right ones in the eyes of the law??
GAH...

This book really worked my mind.  I stayed up all night to read it...I seriously could not put it down because I had to know what was going to happen to these two characters.  I loved Rain...she was strong and funny...yet when she was vulnerable, it was such a beautiful thing..Her relationship with Luke was raw and slow..I felt it complimented exactly who they were and grew to be the type of true love that we all strive for.
And then the end came...OH MY FREAKIN WORD...I felt my heart breaking..the decisions....Ahhhhh...
Just pure genius...Totally wrapped up in this and then a complete undoing of me...
I hated seeing this book come to an end...I wanted more and more and even as I sit here and write this I am needing more...
I highly recommend you pick this book up...It is a fun, action-packed, suspenseful story that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start until the very last page....


 

  And don’t forget BURYING WATER, the first book in this thrilling series…


Burying Water
