Overkill

Vanessa is tired of her boyfriend Simon’s promiscuous vampire ways and stakes him, repeatedly- not close enough to the heart to kill him but close enough to make it hurt. But now she’s had a change of heart and considers embracing the sexual world of the vampire instead of being jealous of it.

Witch in the Middle

Ariadne is a witch torn between two men, a vampire and a human. Her heart doesn’t want to choose but the men force her to make a decision that could break her heart, unless with the help of the Goddess all three of them can come to a mutually acceptable…and enjoyable agreement.

When It Storms

Devon’s witchy girlfriend becomes insatiable every time a storm rolls around and he’s more than happy to give her exactly what she needs.

Monster Inside

Shannon’s never seen her vampire boyfriend, Logan, vamp out before. Then one night he has to kill to save her life. Can she ever look at him the same way again?

The Questioning Concubine


Elita, a pure blood witch, has come home to find who or what killed her parents and to take her rightful place as the head of the coven. After five years of investigating and exhausting all conventional methods at her disposal, she decides to do the one thing a good witch should never do—summon a demon. The demon is not what she expected. Elita is soon swept up in his power… and her own.

Renata

The residents of the sleepy little town of Flushing, Michigan had no idea a vampire lived among them, seducing and drinking from all the men in town. Renata walked among them, blending in, taking only what she needed. One night, while she was on the prowl for fresh blood at a carnival, a handsome carnie caught her eye. She had no way of knowing he was a vampire hunter and was there for her.

Sea of Blood

Liana made Nerissa a vampire centuries ago in the islands of Greece but she’s never tired of her companion or the way she hunts her prey.


A Halloween to Remember

What says Halloween better than a wild party at an old Victorian mansion complete with its own cemetery? Perhaps meeting the man of your dreams thanks to the magic of Halloween.

Adena can’t believe her eyes when she spots Dimitri in the library- he looks like something straight off the cover of a historical romance novel-the type of guy she’s always dreamed of. Too bad he disappears before she has the chance to introduce herself. When she finally spots him again later that night she decides she’s not letting him get away again. Adena thinks she’s finally found the one. Until she wakes up alone the next morning- in the cemetery.

Halloween magic brought them together but will it be strong enough to keep them together?

Humorous, spicy and sweet…definitely reading-time well spent.” ~Renata and The Questioning Concubine reviewed by Patrice F., Joyfully Reviewed

“Narrated with gutsy charm by Marissa, a young witch in training, this story begins with her outrage at finding Deirdre, the beautiful vampire who is training her, together with Jeff, Marissa's idiotic but well endowed ex-boyfriend.

Book Blurb !!!

Kendra, fifteen, hasn't felt safe since she began to recall devastating memories of childhood sexual abuse, especially because she still can't remember the most important detail-- her abuser's identity. Frightened, Kendra believes someone is always watching and following her, leaving menacing messages only she understands. If she lets her guard down even for a minute, it could cost Kendra her life. To relieve the pressure, Kendra cuts; aside from her brilliantly expressive artwork, it's her only way of coping. Since her own mother is too self-absorbed to hear her cries for help, Kendra finds support in others instead: from her therapist and her art teacher, from Sandy, the close family friend who encourages her artwork, and from Meghan, the classmate who's becoming a friend and maybe more. But the truth about Kendra's abuse is just waiting to explode, with startling unforeseen consequences. Scars is the unforgettable story of one girl's frightening path to the truth



Reasons Not To Hurt Yourself

Reasons Not To Hurt Yourself
by Cheryl Rainfield


  • Because you do not deserve to be hurt, not by anyone, not even yourself;
  • Because you deserve the same compassion, kindness, and love that everyone else does, and that you would give to a friend;
  • Because if you hurt yourself, you are repeating and reinforcing what your abusers or people who put you down told you, and none of that is true;
  • Because any relief you may get from hurting yourself is only fleeting and will not last, and because you will need to keep hurting yourself more frequently and worse to get that tiny bit of relief, and may end up doing permanent damage or may even inadvertently kill yourself;
  • Because you have already been through so much pain and do not need more pain added to that;
  • Because you have a voice and have a right to be heard;
  • Because you deserve to have compassion for yourself, the way others have it for you;
  • Because there are safer, gentler ways to find some relief and you deserve to find those ways;
  • Because even if you do not believe it, hurting yourself will hurt the people who truly love you;
  • Because you deserve to be treated gently and with love, not with hate;
  • Because you are not to blame for anything that happened to you as a child;
  • Because you will hurt your body and your body is not to blame for anything;
  • Because hurting yourself is abusing yourself, and you do not deserve to be abused;
  • Because it’s better and kinder to reach out to others and get support, or to find inner resources to rely on, rather than to add to your own hurt and torment;
  • Because one day you will see the beauty in yourself and know that you should be treated with care;
  • Because you are lovable and loved, and deserve to be treated with love; and
  • Because things will get better, and you will find more of what you need.

First Kiss by Elaina Lee

Needing something short n sweet, and a romantic read I saw this book posted over at one of My favourite authors sites so I decided to delve in and buy it and read it !! Well I must say for all those after a short romance filled with heat and passion !! and a great storyline to boot should read this one.. I love the cover  and whats inside doesnt dissapoint.. Here my thoughts ...

First Kiss by Elaina Lee


Michelle Seabourne works as an Audio Engineer for her current music label company and has been assigned Alexander Trent a famous musician to mix his music. Michelle and Alexander have a past, fifteen years prior Michelle remembers the heated First Kiss in the closest. A kiss she never ever forgot and a kiss that lingered in her memories all these years. Luckily for Michelle, Alexander doesn’t know who she is, her school crush will remain a secret. For now!

Alexander’s sapphire blue eyes, six foot two frame, handsome and good looking features now taunt her thoughts on a daily basis, the New Year’s kiss leads to a one night stand. A night filled with passion, love and lust that neither of them has ever experienced before. Alex puts the wall up around his heart, to guard against everyone and leaves Michelle in bewilderment as to why she ever thought there may have been a future with someone like him - As she considers herself not worthy enough. Alex alone proves her theory, leaving her a gift box, as a thank you and farewell for the night they spent together. Feeling hurt and Shocked Michelle decides to ditch Alex and show him a thing or two and moves to another contract. She definitely has spunk!!

Alex can’t help but think that he and Michelle have met before, but she has assured him they have not, she doesn’t think he would remember her anyway. However he is still unconvinced - Something about her reminds him of the past. Alex does not believe in complications his life is to busy, and full, he guards himself against all love and happiness to fulfill the dream he thought he wanted. Alone and without love he decides he has missed out on too much in life, he wants more than money and fame can buy him – he wants a real and a normal life, his First kiss to be his last kiss - but will it cost him his First Kiss and love?

***
First Kiss is a romantic, tantalizing, and passion filled story, entangled with romance that will not on give you butterflies within, but will have the pages heat up from the electricy flowing between the characters. The hot love will singe your eyelashes, and smexy scorchin love scenes that make your eyes twinkle and flip frantically through the pages. * Im a romantic at heart, I love a good love story, filled with heat and passion.

It had a predicable ending, happily ever after, but hey I’m not disappointed, all the events that take place before, will still have you piqued from page one till the very end.

Michelle and Alexandra have a smoking – hot lustful connection, more than just hot sex, and affection they both share equally, but desires that run wild when they are together. An attraction evident on all levels, physically and emotionally. What can I say!!! Likeable characters and more than just sex, romance but also a great plot.

Alexandra was a conflicted man, having had fame since an early age of 19, he has experienced all that most would wish for, but rich and famous is not all is cracked up to be. He feels he has missed out on all the stuff normal people do. Alex was an assertive character, slightly withdrawn with his life, but set on leading the life he most desires, a life where he is not loved for his money and fame but for himself. Elaina gave us one hotty here, lusty and sexy, and well great all departments. ** Lusty wink ** lol. I love a man who takes charge !!!

Michelle has a lot of insecurities, many of her own. Not thinking that she is memorable enough for anyone to want. She is a strong willed character with spunk, and strong enough to struggle through her career to be the best woman she can in a males society. She is a woman who knows what she wants...

First kiss at only 115 pages, is an intriguing read, that will have you not only captivated from page one, but swept along with the love story, which is fluently paced - each chapter flowing smoothly from one to the next . A story I recommended to all, short but sweet and defiantly a treat!!!

One of my favorites **gently he touched his mouth to her, kissing her slowly and easy. ** I was your first kiss Michelle and I want to be your last **

** sags in chair and sighs ** how romantic !!!!!

Sigh – It all about the first kiss!! Whether it is ravenous, passionate,or pleasurable but sometimes always memorable....
