Jonathan Stoker is a reluctant vampire who wants nothing to do with the dark world that turned him. He isolates himself, sucking nonlethal quantities of blood from helpless drunks and making a marginal living. However after he learns that someone he holds dear has been lured to the VampCon, a cut-throat vampire summit, Jonathan is forced to deal with his kind again.

 

 

But Jonathan and company quickly discover that the VampCon is much more than a meeting. It’s a conspiracy that holds the key to both the creation and possible extinction of all vampires.

 

 

Now Jonathan has no choice but to come to terms with his own dark side while working with a small band of troublemakers to stop a nightmare from coming true.

Meet the Sullivans #bookreview #amreading

I’m participating in a HUGE blog tour, hosted by Novel PubliciSullivan Tour Badgety. This tour is major, with a ton of awesome prizes, and the chance to be introduced to some great bloggers. The Sullivan series follows one large family, and each book is about one sibling falling in love. The good thing about this series, besides the great sex scenes, incredible emotions and wonderful characters is that it’s not required to read them in order. I started with Book 3, continued with Book 4 and skipped to Book 1 for my third choice. At my current rate, I’m finishing a book a day. I’m pretty sure I’ll be suffering from withdrawals when I finish the series! Now, before I give my review on Book 3, Can’t Help Falling In Love, I want to let everyone know what’s up for grabs just by participating in this tour.

The Prizes:

* iPad Mini
* Kindle Fire
* Nook Color
* Kobo eReader
* $100 Amazon gift cards (7 prizes)
* $50 Amazon gift cards (2 prizes)
* $25 Amazon gift cards (8 prizes)
* $20 iTunes gift cards (10 prizes)
* Custom prize baskets for EACH of the 7 books–including items such as wine gift set, silver bracelets, romantic photo books and photo frames, eReader and smart phone skins, and MUCH, MUCH more!

If you’re a fellow blogger and want to join in on such a huge tour, check out Novel Publicity. There’s prizes up for grabs for every blogger involved as well. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time, don’t ya think?

My Thoughts:

I started reading this book to ease a case of boredom. By page 20, I was hooked and couldn’t stop. I heard a lot of complaining from my husband and children because I refused to leave my computer until I’d reached THE END. The entire book took me two hours to read and I couldn’t wait to get started with the next book. The author did a wonderful job of creating a believable story, with memorable characters. I’m an avid reader and I rarely find characters with such depth, that I can actually relate to. I enjoyed watching sexy firefighter Gabe fall for conservative Megan and her spunky daughter Summer. As a female who had to go through a brief stint of being a single mom, I really appreciated the way the author showed the struggles of a young mom, who was reluctant to start a relationship, for fear of how it would impact her young daughter.

Gabe is a woman’s dream man. He loves children, and goes out of his way to include little Summer in the outings with him and Megan. I’m a sucker for men who love children, and have a high respect for any man who can take on the responsibility of another person’s child. Gabe was easy to fall in love with. Not only was he a great father figure but an incredible lover. The sex scenes in this story are super hot and erotic, without being trashy or unbelievable. My temperature certainly rose a few degrees after finishing just one of these books. By the time I’m finished with the whole series, it may take more than a cool shower and chilly weather to keep me from getting brain damage.

On a scale of one to five, I’d give this story a straight five, which is rare for me since I’m always finding some fault with every story I read. This is definitely a book I’d recommend buying.

BLURB: Cover-3-Cant-Help-Falling-In-Love-196x300

Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire…and can’t stop thinking about.

Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving – and losing – a man with a dangerous job again.

Only, when Gabe and Megan meet again and uncontrollable flames of desire ignite between them, how can he possibly ignore her courage, determination, and beauty? And how can she deny not only his strong bond with her daughter…but the way his sweetly sensual kisses are challenging her to risk everything she’s been guarding for so long?

This winter, if one – or both – of them aren’t careful, they just might end up falling in love.

Manly-man Jaxon becomes a victim and has to rely on Empath and Healer Dr. Mandi Thompson to discover what is going on and how to save him. As the clock ticks down, Mandi realizes that keeping Jaxon alive has become more than a professional task. She’s fallen in love with the jaded Special Agent and will do anything to keep him safe.

Can Jaxon get past his stubborn values and take the chance on love before it’s too late? Or is Mandi doomed to remain in Rianza forever, a lonely recluse?

Back to the Blogasphere

As I work on promoting my new books, I realized it’s been almost a year since I’ve published anything to my blog. Time has flown by and I’ve went through some dramatic changes. My mind has become full circle back to my passion of writing. I’ve just published four books, two novels and two short erotica stories. I’ve chosen the self-publishing route once again and hope it pays off. In addition to these books, I’ve also managed to finish the one novel which has plagued me since the beginning of my writing career. With it came the blank slate of not knowing where to go next. However, I refuse to allow myself to bask in my accomplishments and I’m hard at work on finishing the revisions for my first ever Suspense/Thriller. With luck, I’ll have both of these books ready to be released to the public before the end of the year.

To celebrate the upcoming Christmas holiday, and the publishing of my work, I’m giving away a free copy of my short Erotica Christmas story to anyone who comments on this post. And that’s not all…One lucky winner will get a choice of either of my Paranormal Romance novels. Pregnant men, or a sexy bodyguard. Which would you choose? If you don’t win, don’t be dismayed. For a limited time, each of my books are on sale for just $0.99! Be sure to follow my blog and leave your email in the comments box for your chance to win. And share with your friends! Everyone loves a sexy, naughty Santa!

Bad and NaughtyNormally, I’m a naughty girl, especially when writing erotica, but today, I think I’ll be nice. I’ve been shocked into submission by some of the blogs I’ve visited lately that have more nudity and cock than I’ve seen in Playgirl. Not that I’m complaining. It’s great inspiration and a nice visual aid. Just very, very unexpected. Why, I’m not sure. Regardless, you won’t be seeing any naked pictures here. “AWW! That sucks!” Yes, I know. To be honest, the reason I don’t post pics of hot and sometimes naked guys is I have no idea where to find them. I’d hate to just type in naked men into my browser, copy that pic and then have someone come after me for piracy.

I hope to one day be able to figure out where my wonderful friends get such delightful eye candy QueenTutfrom so I may share a snack or two with my wonderful readers. So cross your fingers ladies! Hopefully we’ll have some sexy men soon. Until then, we’ll have to live vicariously through others’ blogs. Don’t think I won’t be burning up the links of the participating authors for this hop. I hope to find more great photos like I did at Queen Tut’s. Wowsa! Y’all be sure to make this a stop on your list if you’re interested in great prizes and yummy naked, full frontal men!

Rules for Contest:

1.) Comment on the question with an answer and add your email into the message. Also remember to hit “like” for this post.

Heart Over Mind Blurb:Heart Over Mind

A Life Changed Forever
Nala Arpaia, psychiatrist, lives a boring, routine life…until her knight in tight blue jeans comes to whisk her off to a family castle full of fabled creatures. It’s like something out of a book, all the way down to the life or death situation she finds herself in. As the last member of the most powerful blood line to ever exist, Nala is now the final mark of Broncestan Milivak, who’s goal is world domination.

Nala has to master her powers if she wants to save the free world. All she really wants…is her protector Gabriel.

Stubborn to the Core
Gabriel Ricardo’s job as head Graida, a magical bodyguard, is his life. He eats, breaths and sleeps work. When his boss, head Elder Elam Korbin gives Gabriel the task of retrieving his niece, Nala, Gabriel’s all business. Until, he meets the psychiatrist. Things go down hill from there. This case isn’t like any other. Illusions, magic, and attempted kidnap he can handle. The presence of the strong, and irresistible attraction he feels for the doctor he can’t. As things get dangerous, Gabriel has to force his mind to focus on the case, and not the lust burning him alive.

Unable to Resist…
As Broncestan’s attacks get stronger, and more dangerous, Nala finds it more important than ever to experience the kind of relationship she’d always wanted, but never had. Seeing Nala suffer at the hands of a power-hungry Damned soul, Gabriel realizes keeping his distance isn’t working. Soon, they give in to the passion and proclaim their love. Just when things are supposed to work out, things hit rock bottom again.

Their Future Looms in the Balance…
Will they ever be able to defeat Broncestan and enjoy a relationship together or are they doomed to live their lives alone and miserable?

Excerpt:

“I love you Nala.”

She looked up at him and knew he meant it.

“And I love you. Will you make me yours now?”

Reaching down, he spread her legs and slipped one finger inside. “God, you’re so wet.”

Nala begin to squirm as he sped up his ministrations. Pressure built as he pleasured her. She tried to stop him but he pushed her hands away.

“Let go.”

She surrendered to the feelings. A scream exploded from her throat as she climaxed. When she came down, she noticed Gabriel looking down at her.

“That was great.”

Gabriel gave her a feral grin. “That’s nothing compared to what’s next.”

He slid into her, letting her adjust before going deeper. He groaned in ecstasy as he moved in and out, gaining speed but holding back so he would not hurt her. Nala gasped and sobbed at the feelings he evoked. She went higher with every thrust and was just about to fall over the edge when Gabriel stopped. Nala followed her instincts and moved her hips, rocking against him.

“Nala, you have to stop.”

She heard the strained words and felt the strength of his hands at her waist, but kept going.

“In a minute.”

She could feel it building. Her breath came in pants as the first ripples started.

“Open your eyes.”

She obeyed his command. Her eyelids felt heavy as she forced them to open against the pleasure. When Gabriel started to glow a pale white, Nala gasped. She looked at her own hands in surprise. She was glowing too.

“Gabriel, what’s happening?”

He smiled. “It’s the mating ritual I told you about. Look over there.”

Nala followed the sound of increasing mumbles. A group of see-through figures hovered over the floor, staring right at them as they spoke in a strange language. They started to move closer. Nala squirmed to get out from underneath Gabriel.

“Let me up. I don’t want anyone seeing us.”

Gabriel held her under him with a tender kiss. “Don’t worry. They don’t see. They just sense when a mating ritual is occurring and appear to bless the union. Once they’re done, they disappear.”

12 Days of Christmas

12 days of Christmas

Welcome to my addition of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. You may have noticed that I’m participating in a lot of blog hops this month. That’s because to me, Christmas is about giving. That’s why every hop I enter this month will have a free copy of my paranormal romance, Heart Over Mind smashwordsHeart Over Mind available to one lucky winner. For those of you who don’t win, keep your head up. There’s a bunch more chances to win. I’m hosting giveaways on my website, and on my Facebook fan page. And for those of you who don’t win the book, you can still opt in to win two bookmarks, one from myself and one from the fabulous Gracen Miller.

If you’d like to enter for the bookmarks, please state in your comment. I know some people don’t collect those.

If I could have one thing for Christmas, besides for my children having the time of their lives and getting everything they want, it would be a white Christmas.White Christmas Some people are probably a bit curious about this. See, I live in West Tennessee, where the most snow we see is usually less than two feet. That often occurs in the middle of February. We’re lucky to see four snow storms a year. I don’t want anything heavy, but it would be nice to wake up Christmas morning to a bit of white stuff on the ground. If only we could have that without intense cold, I’d be a happy camper! I hate cold weather. Thank goodness the coldest it ever gets here is 7 degrees. I don’t think I could handle sub zero temps. And I want to visit Alaska! Ha. I’m a walking contradiction.

So readers, what do you what most for Christmas? (Oh, did I mention I also want a Kindle Fire? For purely selfish reasons of course. Hey, Momma’s allowed to ask Santa for stuff too! LOL)Dear Santa

Heart Over MindHeart Over Mind Blurb:

A Life Changed Forever
Nala Arpaia, psychiatrist, lives a boring, routine life…until her knight in tight blue jeans comes to whisk her off to a family castle full of fabled creatures. It’s like something out of a book, all the way down to the life or death situation she finds herself in. As the last member of the most powerful blood line to ever exist, Nala is now the final mark of Broncestan Milivak, who’s goal is world domination.

Nala has to master her powers if she wants to save the free world. All she really wants…is her protector Gabriel.

Stubborn to the Core
Gabriel Ricardo’s job as head Graida, a magical bodyguard, is his life. He eats, breaths and sleeps work. When his boss, head Elder Elam Korbin gives Gabriel the task of retrieving his niece, Nala, Gabriel’s all business. Until, he meets the psychiatrist. Things go down hill from there. This case isn’t like any other. Illusions, magic, and attempted kidnap he can handle. The presence of the strong, and irresistible attraction he feels for the doctor he can’t. As things get dangerous, Gabriel has to force his mind to focus on the case, and not the lust burning him alive.

Unable to Resist…
As Broncestan’s attacks get stronger, and more dangerous, Nala finds it more important than ever to experience the kind of relationship she’d always wanted, but never had. Seeing Nala suffer at the hands of a power-hungry Damned soul, Gabriel realizes keeping his distance isn’t working. Soon, they give in to the passion and proclaim their love. Just when things are supposed to work out, things hit rock bottom again.

Their Future Looms in the Balance…
Will they ever be able to defeat Broncestan and enjoy a relationship together or are they doomed to live their lives alone and miserable?

Excerpt:

“I love you Nala.”

She looked up at him and knew he meant it.

“And I love you. Will you make me yours now?”

Reaching down, he spread her legs and slipped one finger inside. “God, you’re so wet.”

Nala begin to squirm as he sped up his ministrations. Pressure built as he pleasured her. She tried to stop him but he pushed her hands away.

“Let go.”

She surrendered to the feelings. A scream exploded from her throat as she climaxed. When she came down, she noticed Gabriel looking down at her.

“That was great.”

Gabriel gave her a feral grin. “That’s nothing compared to what’s next.”

He slid into her, letting her adjust before going deeper. He groaned in ecstasy as he moved in and out, gaining speed but holding back so he would not hurt her. Nala gasped and sobbed at the feelings he evoked. She went higher with every thrust and was just about to fall over the edge when Gabriel stopped. Nala followed her instincts and moved her hips, rocking against him.

“Nala, you have to stop.”

She heard the strained words and felt the strength of his hands at her waist, but kept going.

“In a minute.”

She could feel it building. Her breath came in pants as the first ripples started.

“Open your eyes.”

She obeyed his command. Her eyelids felt heavy as she forced them to open against the pleasure. When Gabriel started to glow a pale white, Nala gasped. She looked at her own hands in surprise. She was glowing too.

“Gabriel, what’s happening?”

He smiled. “It’s the mating ritual I told you about. Look over there.”

Nala followed the sound of increasing mumbles. A group of see-through figures hovered over the floor, staring right at them as they spoke in a strange language. They started to move closer. Nala squirmed to get out from underneath Gabriel.

“Let me up. I don’t want anyone seeing us.”

Gabriel held her under him with a tender kiss. “Don’t worry. They don’t see. They just sense when a mating ritual is occurring and appear to bless the union. Once they’re done, they disappear.”

Romancing Christmas

Romancing ChristmasThis is my post for the Romancing Christmas blog hop. It was due up yesterday but as I’m prone to do, I procrastinated and ended up posting late. :/ Yes I know. Waggle your fingers at me. But I would like to blame the error on my internet. I’ve been having so much trouble with it for the last month and up until Monday, I’d done without internet for TWO whole weeks. Gasp. I know, I had withdraws. But, I’m back and I hope it allows me to fulfill all my blog hop obligations. So, without any more rambling…

Christmas Romance Christmas is a time for family. It’s a great time to show a person who much you love them with fancy gifts and expensive jewelry. Perhaps it’s my simple upbringing, but I don’t ask for these types of gifts. My biggest gift is seeing my children have a wonderful holiday. I know a lot of people who use Christmas as the backdrop for proposing marriage. Engagement ringA good friend of ours did it last year. To my tastes, it’s a bit overdone but I applaud anyone who chooses this method. At least they know it’ll be a Christmas they’d never forget.

This year, I had hopes of writing a Christmas romance but I never got around to it. Heck, I couldn’t even get to the plotting stage. All I could think of was that I wanted it to be about Christmas. So, I did the smart thing and continued working on my very first suspense/thriller/mystery. I’d hoped to have it done by December 1st but that didn’t happen so I set a new deadline of January 1st. And I’ve already planned out my resolutions. Trust me, it’s probably pointless. I never accomplish them. Back to romance…I know a lot of generous authors who are offering their holiday stories for a discounted price this Christmas season. Amazon is a great source, and then there’s the publishing houses. Two of my favorites are Decadent Publishing and Ellora’s Cave. They sale the hottest stories around!

One lucky commenter will win the ebook edition of my new paranormal romance. All you have to do is follow these steps. Forget one, and I may have to disqualify you. I’ll use Random.org to select the winner. 

Merry Christmas

EXCERPT: 18+ Only

The night was cool and clear, and the moon shone bright, surrounded by millions of stars. Nala walked along a riverbank, the dirt soft and cold beneath her bare feet. She was looking for someone. Through the hanging limbs of a weeping willow tree, and over a fallen log. Then, in the darkness, she made out the silhouette of a man. He stood with his back to her, naked. Just like her. She gasped as she looked down at her own exposed body. She felt unaffected. She kept moving towards the mystery man, her hand outstretched.

Her fingers brushed his tan, muscular shoulder and his body tightened. Then he turned around. He was such a handsome man; the most beautiful she had ever seen. Muscles corded his thick arms and jagged scars crisscrossed his left bicep and right forearm. Puckered white marks from what looked like bullet holes dotted his chest and stomach. There were dozens of other scars along his ribs, knees, thighs, and even one on his foot. Nala spent time studying each of them, using her fingers and then her tongue. Each flick seemed to push the man a little further into arousal.

His hand shoved into her thick, dark hair and jerked her head up. She watched, dazed, as his mouth began to lower towards hers. It seemed to take an eternity. Just as she thought she would die of deprivation, his firm lips covered hers. His tongue thrust past her lips, into the moist cavern of her mouth as his hands began an intimate search of her body. He stroked her in places she had never expected to be touched. Her breasts ached as he caressed them, his thumbs flicking over her hardened nipples. As his fingers dipped towards her throbbing center, she arched towards him.

He burrowed through the curls concealing her womanhood. Moving with slow purpose, he slipped a finger inside her wet, throbbing center. Waves of heat curled throughout her body as he thrust with alternating pace. Her breath caught as an unfamiliar feeling took over her body. Muscles clenched around the man’s finger as spasms took her away to a place of ecstasy. Nala clung to him as her body spiraled out of control. When she came back to earth, he was watching her, desire burning in his eyes. He reached for her hand and guided it down his stomach to his rigid male member.

Nala gasped at the size and hardness of it. Going by instinct alone, she began to slide her hand up and down. His eyes glazed over and his head went back on a groan. She increased her pace and smiled when he began to squeeze her arms. The faster she went, the tighter his grip became. He began to pant and then he stiffened up. “Oh Nala. I’m about to cum.”

Her hand kept working up and down his long, thick shaft as he began to get his release. “Do it Gabriel. I want you to.”
