Title:   Last Light  (Night Owl Trilogy Book #2)
Author:   M. Pierce
Release Date: October 28, 2014
Genre:   Contemporary Erotic Romance

Tensions rise, secrets grow bigger, and passions run deeper—and hotter—in Last Light, the second novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce.

Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead.

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret: she knows Matt is alive. After Matt's memorial service, she lingers on the East Coast with his family, but it soon becomes clear that his brothers' motives are less than gracious. Nate Sky is bent on tracking down the author of Night Owl, a book that charts the last days of Matt's life with uncanny and scandalous accuracy, and which appeared only after his death. Seth Sky is bent on getting Hannah into his bed.

Hidden away in the woods, Matt and Hannah strive desperately to maintain their ruse and their relationship—but their web of lies only tightens as Matt struggles with the consequences of his decision, and Hannah tries to escape Nate's libel suit and fend off Seth's advances...until Hannah is put in danger, and Matt must make a life or death choice.

Title:   After Dark (Night Owl Trilogy Book #3)
Author:   M. Pierce
Release Date: March 24, 2015
Genre:   Contemporary Erotic Romance

In the final novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce, can a passion that has withstood many ordeals become a love strong enough to last a lifetime?

At twenty-nine, Matt Sky is trying to return to normal, having faked his death and come back to life. He and Hannah move to a simple house in the suburbs, and strive to grow their relationship into something durable and honest. They become more and more entangled, in the best ways possible.

At twenty-eight, Hannah finally has the life she's always wanted: she's pursuing her career as a literary agent at Granite Wing Agency, she is writing her first solo novel, and she is living with her hot, passionate lover. For the first time, Matt and Hannah are able to explore intimacy without inhibitions—without lies, secrets, or jealousy—and the results are explosive.

Still life together is not as easy as it seems. Matt is estranged from his brothers in the wake of his cruel stunt; Seth Sky, embittered by his failed pursuit of Hannah, makes a play for Hannah's sister; and the topic of Hannah's novel—her relationship with Matt and the Sky family—is driving a wedge between her and Matt. The lovers are devoted to one another, having come through many ordeals, but is their bond strong enough to last a lifetime?


            Matt insisted on carrying me to the bathroom. I hugged his neck.
            “Matt, you realize I can walk with a black eye, right?”
            “I’ll be the judge of that.” He set me on the counter and I squeaked; the marble was frigid under my bare bottom. He dropped one of my bath bombs in the tub and watched it fizz and color the water purple.
Once, I managed to convince Matt to use a bath bomb with me. It was called a “sex bomb” and it was supposed to “put us in the mood” with “exciting scents” and “natural pheromones.” I grinned at the memory. As soon as Matt realized the bomb was coating his skin in sparkles, he leapt out of the tub ranting about “looking Twilighty” and “smelling like a girl.”
            “What’re you grinning at?”
            “You.” I smiled. “And this bath, which is such a transparent effort to avoid saying goodbye. Sweet… but transparent.”
            Matt frowned and paced the small space of the bathroom. Ha! I was right. Matt planned to leave me in the tub and slip away.
My poor, adorable night owl—he really had issues with goodbyes.
            “No,” he mumbled. “Maybe…”
            “Can I induce you to stay a little longer?” I uncrossed my legs deliberately and spread them. Matt watched. He folded his arms and tilted his head.
            “How does your cheek feel?”
            “They’re cold.” I grinned.
            “And you say I’m bad.” He slid me off the sink and turned me. I watched our reflection through the patchy steam on the mirror. Matt—God, he was so tall, and the look on his face was arresting. He wanted me. I knew that look.

***Release Day Blitz and Giveaway*** Cherished (A Masters and Mercenaries Novella) by Lexi Blake

cherished banner

Cherished_highres (1)
A doctor living a double life
By day, Dr. Will Daley is one of Dallas’s most eligible bachelors, but every night he dons his leathers as one of Sanctum’s most desired Doms. He’s sworn off looking for a long-term relationship but is captivated by the club’s newest member, Bridget Slaten, even though they couldn’t be more different. She comes from a world of privilege and he was raised in poverty. When he discovers she needs a date to her sister’s wedding, he makes certain he’s literally the only man for the job.
A woman no longer willing to live in the shadows
For most of her life, Bridget hid herself behind her laptop. She can write romantic, sensuous lives for her characters but not herself. Having Master Will as her date to the wedding is a thrilling prospect but he has a special request. He wants her to accept two weeks of his services as a Dom, a lover, and expert in BDSM, and that is an offer she can’t refuse. Their sexual chemistry is undeniable, but it’s in the tender moments that Bridget realizes she’s falling for a man who might never trust her with his heart.
A love strong enough to cherish
Together in paradise for a week, Will realizes he can’t imagine his life without Bridget.  As the wedding approaches, ghosts from their past come back to haunt them and threaten to ruin the peace they’ve found. With everything exposed, they will have to risk it all to claim the love that can set them both free.
“I thought you were staying for dinner.” He moved in, taking up all the space. This close, she could see that he had a five-o’clock shadow across his perfect jaw. She was a sucker for a square jaw. Damn it. Even his ears were hot. She kind of wanted to lick them to see if he was ticklish there.


“I think that’s a bad idea.”
“Because I’m not looking for anything serious?” Will asked. “Does everything have to be serious? Do you go into every relationship looking to get married?”
“No. I don’t think about getting married much.” Her parents’ marriage was so bad she often couldn’t stomach the idea. “But I’m getting too old to do the one-night stand thing.”
He moved in closer and she nearly forgot to breathe. He smelled so good. Clean and masculine. Sandalwood. He’d likely washed with it. All over. A vision of him soaping that body made her mouth water. “I didn’t say anything about one-night stands. I said maybe you shouldn’t take every relationship so seriously. Bridget, I want to spend time with you.”
And her nipples were hard. Yeah, they wanted to spend time with him, but her brain was still in charge. “My sister’s getting married in Hawaii.”
Oh, her brain was a traitor, too.
He loomed over her, his body inches away. His lips curled up in the sexiest grin. “Really? That sounds like fun. When is that happening?”
He was going to kiss her. His lips were going to touch hers and she had the sudden and deep fear that she wouldn’t be the same afterward. Still, she couldn’t quite seem to move, couldn’t get the will worked up to step back. She only managed to run her tongue across her lips to make sure they weren’t bone dry. “Soon. Next week.”
He sighed, his hands finding her shoulders. “Oh, I guess you’re going to be out of town then. I was hoping to see you while I was on vacation next week.”
She was mesmerized by his eyes. This close, she could see how green they were. His hands moved to her neck. “You could come with me. I need a date.”
Now she was kind of happy everyone else had turned her down. It seemed right to ask him, good to be here with him.
There was the sound of a phone ringing.
He shook his head as his hands sank into her hair. The way he was taking his time did something for her. The men she’d been with before had all just gone for it and would likely have already been pawing her boobs by now, but Will was moving with languid seduction. It was like a dance. “You need a date?”
The only thing pulling her out of the sensual haze was that stupid phone. Who had a landline these days? “I do. Shouldn’t you get that?”
His nose touched hers as his fingers ran along her scalp, sending pleasurable shivers through her body. “Don’t worry about it. The hospital requires I keep a house phone. And a pager. And a cell. If it’s really important, they’ll page me. This is more fun than answering the phone, don’t you think? Bridget, you know I won’t be able to keep my hands off you if we go to Hawaii together.”
She didn’t want him to. She was fairly certain she was going to fall into bed with him in the next ten minutes. Maybe he was right. Maybe she took everything too seriously and she should have some fun for once in her life. Maybe she could handle it. “Will?”
His mouth hovered right over hers, and there was no way to mistake the satisfaction coming off him. He wanted her. God, he really wanted her. “Yes, Bridget?”
“Do you want to come to Hawaii with me? We could have fun.”

***Lesley Reviews Marked (Dark Protectors #7) by Rebecca Zanetti


Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice…

Lesley's Review

Where to start with this review....

It's a bitter-sweet one to be doing that's for sure. These characters have been in our purview since the very first book. Janie Belle and Zane have grown along with the story.. so, there is this attachment that spans 7 books. It's like watching your niece, nephew or god child grow, except hopefully, you don't have an ending to their stories for a very long time. But, this isn't just Janie and Zane's story ....All of our beloved characters say good-bye to us as well. It was kind-of an emotional one for me. I love The Realm and all those characters and it was just sad to say good-bye. (Although, the little epilogue makes me think it isn't goodbye. Wishful thinking maybe?)

 Anyway back to the point....

Marked was everything I hoped for and more. It was excellently written. Nothing seemed forced or rushed. With all the pressure of writing Janie and Zane's story, Rebecca exceeded my expectations and brought forth one of her best books. I wouldn't change a single thing in this book.  Even for the characters I didn't like so much, but still had this annoying soft spot for. You'll know who I mean. 

After so many books of pondering what Janie's story would be. Who would Janie end up with? Or would Janie have to sacrifice herself to save her loved ones? We finally dig into the prophesied one. The single human girl with an army of supernaturals either wanting to help her or destroy her. She has the weight of the world on her shoulders. She knows that it comes down to her and her life long "dream" buddies, Zane and Kalin. And lets just say Janie has her sights set on Zane being more than her buddy.
While attending the peace talks, Janie comes face to face with her dream friends.There is no easing into the grit, it's just there. Not everything is as it seems.  With her trust shaken up and the world's fate on her shoulders she pretty much thinks she'll sacrifice herself to save them all. Well, that is until some over bearing control freak steps into her way. She takes him on with all the adorable attitude we've grown to love. 

" It was time for Janie to grow up and let go of childhood dreams."

Who does she take on?  Well, that would be Zane. Sigh... I just love that man to pieces.  Rebecca can create some fantastic alphas to love. Zane is everything I wanted him to be and more. He may be rough around the edges and certainly not what Janie expected, but he doesn't take no for an answer. He will save those he loves at all costs. That cost could very well be his life. 

"A massive man, a true predator, a dangerous warrior."

Nothing about Janie and Zane's story is easy. With her family behind her and the man of her dreams they push forward to complete the mission.  Fate gets the big middle finger ....

"...Because you have been mine your entire life, and I'm tired of waiting."

AND that's it folks.( You know cause spoilers suck.) 

 5 PERFECTLY FANTASTIC stars. You will get everything you were looking for. I think pretty much all ends were tied with pretty red bows. I mean it has all aspects covered. The in-laws, the enemies, the love, the heart-break, the triumph. BEST of all KARMA. ;) Well done, Mrs. Zanetti.

***Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway*** Grayson by Lisa Eugene

All she needed was a job…
The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.

What she got was a mystery…
Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man-- and he's stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away?

What she discovered was heartbreaking…
Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world.

What she ended up with was a treasure…
Angie is determined to get through to him. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with erotic passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.

Early Sunday morning, I crawled out of bed in search of Grayson. I discovered him upstairs in the room with the books. They were piled all around him as he scratched at something on the floor with an old shovel. The room was saturated with an early morning chill, so thick I could feel it seeping through my skin. I hugged my torso, scrubbing my palms up and down my arms. I approached him hesitantly and asked what he was doing. My heart was in my throat because I never knew what to expect with Grayson. He stopped and leaned against the handle, his cloudy gaze finding my face. He was fully dressed. He must have gotten dressed again after we’d made love earlier. 

“Digging,” he acknowledged casually. “Digging a trap.”

I swallowed hard, emotion stacking like bricks in my chest. I shook my head, my mind grasping for purchase, trying to understand. “A trap for what, Grayson?”

“Danger. I have to be prepared. I have to protect us.”

I reached out a hand, trying to keep it steady. “You’re safe, Grayson.”

His gaze shifted to my proffered hand, but he didn’t move. He didn’t believe me. Fear and skepticism drew a roadmap of worry on his face. His jaw squared and he tightened his lips into a brittle line. I watched his body uncurl as he grabbed the shovel and silently started scraping at the floor again. That’s when I saw it. There was a large, jagged crater in the dusty wood that must have been covered up by the scattered books. It was directly over the small cracks I’d seen in the ceiling downstairs, the network of spider veins I’d noticed soon after starting here. I wondered how long he’d been working at this trap. I could already see exposed beams and fluffy insulation. If he kept this up, eventually he’d put a hole right through the wood floor.

“Go back to bed, Angie.”

“I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying with you, Grayson,” I said sternly, plopping myself down on the floor next to him. 

He stopped again and stared at me, his blue eyes almost cobalt in the gray dawn. His hair was a loose mane framing his face, giving him an unruly look. “You’ll be tired. You haven’t gotten much sleep.”

I squeezed my eyes shut, hurting, thinking of the reason I’d been up most of the night. We’d held each other, made exquisite love, bathed in a temporary utopia where I could pretend he was okay. 
But Grayson wasn’t okay, and as I spent more time with him, I realized the extent of his fractured thoughts. My Grayson was funny and brilliant. My Grayson was tender and passionate. My Grayson could melt my heart with the tiniest smile. But this man, too, was my Grayson, a man who was sometimes out of touch with reality, who lived in the distorted world concocted by his brain. It was a world of doubt, fear, and distrust.

I’m a Lisa Eugene fan for sure. I have read and reviewed each one of her books (this is #4). In my humble opinion, with each book Lisa’s talent has grown and so has her confidence. I’ve come to know what to expect – a suspenseful, sexy, read with a woman in peril and a strong guy to help save her. Well Lisa Eugene blew all my expectation the heck out of the water with Grayson. This one is a departure in her style and a stretch of her skill in the best way possible. I absofreakinglutely loved it!  
Angie Roberts is no damsel in distress. She is drowning under a sea of student loans, rent and trying to make ends meet in general. When she sees an ad offering cash to spend a few hours a week cleaning out an old house, she thinks it’s a win win. She is hired and specifically told not to go upstairs. To her surprise she walks into an old house that looks like the inside of a Hoarders episode. Wait – there is one more thing - you know how the beast in Sleeping Beauty told Belle to stay out of his section of the castle? So of course, she has to go up there and see what he’s hiding? Well, Angie does exactly the same thing. To her surprise, she finds this gorgeous man taking care of his business - with one hand if you know what I mean! What follows is the hottest scene I’ve read since Taken by Kelli Maine. I admit to contemplating a cold shower.  
Now why would this gorgeous, rich, obviously virile man spend his time locked away in this dilapidated old house? Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia and paranoia. Despite these facts and the age difference, the first meeting between Angie and Grayson breaks the ice in a way that leads to a “friendship” between them. That friendship turns into an all-consuming attraction and love between these two. You think Angie would run like hell but her medical education lets her see things differently than most. You might also think that Grayson is just some nut job recluse. There is more to him and little by little he shows Angie more and more of himself. 
Lisa Eugene does a great job of describing his manic episodes in a way that is believable, sometimes cringe worthy, without sugar coating it. It felt very real to me. 
Grayson made me laugh, made me cry, made me fall in love with this broken soul of a man who just needed someone to believe in him. Someone to pull him off the edge. Someone to bring him back to life.  
Don’t think the road to love runs smoothly. It does not. There is trouble waiting in the wings. Can these two overcome the odds? The odds are stacked against them.
If I have a negative, if you can call it that, it is that I wanted just a little more.  Nonetheless, I was completely and totally invested in this story, from beginning to end. You will too.

Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn't get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.

When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance.
