Executive Seduction by Jennifer Probst

Executive Seduction
by Jennifer Probst

Previously published under the tile: Heart of Steel

Logan Grant knew Chandler was trouble the moment he laid eyes on her. He agrees to her business proposal because he wants a guaranteed profit...and he wants Chandler Santell. But a dangerous game of love, power and greed play out behind the scenes. The payout is worth millions, but only if he can claim her heart.

Chandler Santell has successfully avoided rich and powerful men who believe more in money than in people. But when her Yoga and Arts Center is on the verge of financial ruin, there's only one man who can help her: Logan Grant--the most ruthless CEO in the finance industry. He's her only hope and she's willing to do anything to save her dream.
Absolutely anything. 

*~*My Review*~*
I loved this story!  It was intense yet satisfying!  I want to know what happens with Olivia!  Is there more to this world?  I really like how a yoga teacher (though very smart former corporate braniac)makes a ruthless hard core billionaire fall for her without really even trying!  It was a sweet story of love at first-ish sight.  I really enjoyed how Logan stood up to Chandler's dad, and how sweet it was to see how it played out.  I love Jennifer Probst's Marriage to a Billionaire series and other books so I figured I would like this one, but it was even better than I hoped!  I loved how even after Chandler was dumb and kept pushing Logan away he finally got her to cave and that weekend was a fairy tale in and of itself!  Five stars for sure!

Death and the Girl He Loves Blog Tour

Death and the Girl He Loves
by Darynda Jones
(Author Extraordinaire)

The fate of the world is not something a girl wants on her shoulders, and that is especially true for Lorelei McAlister.  Unfortunately for her, that is exactly where the world’s fate has decided to take up residence. Lorelei has seen firsthand the horrors that lie beneath our everyday world. And those horrors are getting her friends killed. Because of this, she agrees to leave the sanctity of her hometown and is sent to a different world entirely. A boarding school. But even here she is being watched. Someone knows what she is. What she carries inside her soul.  And on top of that she’s seeing visions.  This is nothing new for Lorelei.  But these visions are something more: death, destruction, and the end of the world.   Lorelei must face the fact that there are people who want her dead, and no matter where she goes, no matter how far she runs, the lives of her friends and family are in mortal peril.  Lucky for her, her friends and family include the handsome Angel of Death, a fiercely protective half-angel, and a ragtag group of loyal supporters who aren’t afraid to get a little dirty in the name of fighting pure evil. 

~*~My Review~*~

I loved every word of this book! It being the third and last in the Darklight Trilogy I was anxious for the ending,on how Darynda was going to wrap it all up.  I was enthralled with the story just as I was for each of the other two books, heck with all of her books!
  Lorelei is hilarious, and when you add Glitch and Brooke it is wonderful the things that are said.  I really loved getting to know Kenya she was a wonderful addition and I thought it brilliant the huge role she actually played.  I think the reason the reality in Darynda’s books are so addictive is that even though they have a feel of reality to them in the midst of the turmoil the humor shines through like a rainbow after the storm.  
 Truly I laughed out loud, I sniffled back tears and most of all I couldn’t put it down until I devoured the story completely!  Jared is yummy yummy and even Cameron brooding and all is smokin’. I wish I had me some Jared and what I would give up to have the Angel of Death as my own!  The emotion in this book makes me long for an epilogue novella, a 'what happened after and who is loving on whom'. Oh in a perfect world *wink
Anyway even without the novella, the Trilogy far surpassed my expectations and after reading Charley Davidson they were somewhat high!
 Love love love and I recommend to all and of course give 5 huge Angel of Death stars (you know hot, sexy, smoking, shiny, need I go on?)

First Rapture by Alexandra Ivy

First Rapture
by Alexandra Ivy

FROM NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER the first book in a new erotic series.
FIRST RAPTURE by Alexandra Ivy

Madison Philips has only one reason to return to Las Vegas: Luc Angeli. The tall, dark bad boy took her virginity on her eighteenth birthday and then walked away, now she’s back, and ready for revenge. Luc Angeli spent his youth trying to earn the approval of his philandering father. Now he’s his own man, but there’s still something missing from his life. He doesn’t know what it is until he catches sight of Madison across a balcony. Suddenly he knows this woman is what he’s been searching for, and this time he’s not walking away.
Approximately: 20,000 words 

~*~ My Review~*~ 
I really enjoyed Maddy and Luc's story, I will readily and happily read anything Alexandra Ivy writes from now on! 

 I was not expecting how intense this short story would be and I loved how Alexandra hit perfectly on what it would feel like to have what happened to Maddy happen to them. 

Luc was sweet and wonderfully reformed!  I wish it would have been just a tad longer so that the changed didn't feel so abrupt from hating (even though it was a mock type of hate) to loving. 
Good story a total 5 star steamy romance!

Author Bio:

I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books.  Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me.  I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.
Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries?  Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few.  I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays.  In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on. 

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

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

Juniper's Princess Blog Tour October 7-11

Fiction Addiction is coordinating...

Come follow my first Blog Tour
of my debut book 
Juniper's Princess!
 Daniah is different, she always has been and now her dreams and visions of the future are increasing, she knows her life is changing. She just doesn't know by how much...

Jaiden is different, but he knows why and he knows his responsibilities. He must find the saviour of his race, the angel human half-breeds who are fighting a war for humanity's souls. If he can't convince Daniah she is more than just a little different - she is the princess of their people - they are all going to die.

Unfortunately Daniah doesn't have many reasons to trust Jadien, especially when he is caught in a web of his own lies.

In a world where half-breed angels walk among us, fighting an evil for our souls, Daniah must find the strength to become the princess we all need.

Chelsea O'Neal has a unique voice in storytelling, threading the characters lives together intricately to give us a complex web of good versus evil in a world descending into chaos...
