She can’t wait on Fleur de Lis to be restored to marry James. They need to wed pronto, before she reveals news sure to shock her family. James is determined to protect Branna. Since their engagement, his gun toting ex-fiancée has been dipping into crazy. He’s certain she’ll settle down after the wedding, but when she steals Branna’s heirloom pearls—her something old for the wedding—James takes matters into his own hands. And despite Branna’s ranting, he’s not agreeing to a quickie Vegas wedding. His fiancée will be a Fleur de Lis bride, just as tradition dictates. Or he’ll die trying. The path to “I do” is more challenging than Branna and James ever imagined, but they’re determined to get their happily ever after.

  Excerpt: “Who would do this?” she wailed. Bed linens, scooped from the bed, were piled in a heap on the floor. The mattress ruined by a large X from corner to corner, looked naked and raw. A bedside lamp had been smashed against the wall. A gaping hole in the drywall sprouted pink insulation. “Miss Lind. Do you have any enemies? This appears to be a threat or a message rather than a burglary. Can you identify anything taken?” “My pearls?” James stepped away. She raced to her dresser, her heart thudding faster than racecar pistons, she yanked on the top dresser drawer. A moment of hope shot through her as she reached for the dark blue velvet box. The string of perfectly matched, white pearls were gone. Her wedding would be incomplete without that special something old. The thief had robbed her unborn child of a precious family heirloom. “Oh, God.” rriving at the RV, he opened the door and climbed aboard. The passenger seat was empty. Where had Branna gone? “I’m back here,” she called out. “I need your help, please.” He paused at the sweetness in her voice, a tone he hadn’t heard since before they postponed the Labor Day weekend wedding. Her plea ignited his hero instincts. Anything for his woman. Checking the lock on the door, he then made his way to the rear of the motorhome where blackout shades shrouded the room in darkness. His eyes took a moment to adjust. “Hey there, handsome,” Branna cooed. A spotlight over the bed suddenly illuminated her. He sucked in a breath. Stretched out on white satin sheets, Branna leaned against several pillows with one knee raised. The pearls glistened around her neck… She motioned him closer. Ravage popped into his mind. He swallowed hard. He wanted to send her body into frantic need that only he could satisfy. He let go of a ragged breath. All other thoughts faded away. Only she existed in that moment.

RE-RELEASE BLITZ DAVID UNDONE (Mending A Broken Heart) BY JAMES LEE HARD


RE-RELEASE BLITZ
DAVID UNDONE
(Mending A Broken Heart)
BY
JAMES LEE HARD


SYNOPSIS

♡OUT NOW

After having his heart broken by his boyfriend, David buys a plane ticket and runs away from New York to the farthest place possible. He finds himself on the other side of the Atlantic, in a small country that’s as beautiful as it is frozen in time.
David’s successful career as a writer has stalled. His muse seems to have abandoned him; all he can think of is Steven’s harsh words about him and his neediness. So he retreats to a house in the middle of a beautiful mountain range, perched on a bay of crystalline, blue-green waters — the same one where he and Steven had planned to go and spend a romantic getaway together. Maybe Steven is right. Maybe David is pitiful and can’t do anything right.
Still jet lagged and questioning himself, David meets Manuel, a Portuguese hunk whose body looks like Michelangelo himself chiseled it. He’s handsome, easygoing, and exudes an aura of self-confidence that makes David want to know more about him. Manuel is everything David is not, and he finds himself drawn to him, his charisma pulling him ever closer.
But is Manuel enough to make him forget about his heartbreak and insecurities? Can David let go of his past?

READ A JUICY EXCERPT...

“He leaned in and placed his hand on David’s cheek, almost covering his whole face in the process. Time seemed to slow down as David saw Manuel lean in for a kiss and felt his own heartbeat against Manuel’s warm hand. Before he could realize what was happening, Manuel kissed him, his soft lips touching his, the taste of coffee invading him. David thought to protest and explain to Manuel things couldn’t be like that. He wasn’t an easy man who slept with the first guy that winked at him. His reasoning, however, was washed away by the lust that took ahold of his body, as Manuel’s tongue began to explore his. His slow exploration quickly transformed into a passionate kiss. Manuel moved in closer to David. His hands slid to his torso and grabbed firmly, pulling David closer to him. David marvelled at the ease with which Manuel pulled him in, as if he was light as a feather, but quickly forgot it as their chests bumped into each other. Manuel’s heart thumped wildly underneath his flannel shirt and his body heat enveloped David in an erotic embrace. Suddenly, David realised this was his chance to see what hid underneath Manuel’s clothes. He wouldn’t need to depend on his imagination anymore.”

Private by Xavier Neals Blog Tour #review #romance




Mogul or Monster?
Billionaire Weston Wilcox hasn't been seen by the outside world in almost a decade. No face to face meetings. No interviews. No social media accounts. Despite his ghost demeanor he continues to financially flourish and make his fellow investors richer with every decision. Throughout the years many have sought to discover the man inside the mogul while others have spread legends painting him as a heartless monster consumed by greed. None of it matters to him. Weston's true identity is secured away in his estate of solitude, which consists of the only people in the entire world he believes he can trust. That is until he's asked to allow a guest access to the property under extreme circumstances. One he knows he shouldn't. It doesn't take long before his world is turned upside down, unexpected threats arise, and Weston's forced to ask himself what really should be kept private?





I love discovering new authors and when I was invited to read this book I couldn't resist the blurb and I have to say it is a very entertaining read.

I loved the characthers, I loved the banter and conversations, I liked the storyline a lot.

This author writes awesome characters.  Their story is told in alternating chapters which gives us a rounded feel of both Wes and Bryn.

Brynlyn visits her sick mum at the private estate where her mother works and lives, on arrival she warns them she is not one to follow rules!

Wes is a private man, hides away from the world in his large estate and his dedicated staff. He has rules in his home but his not horrible, well I didn't think he was anyway. His very mysterious and walks around with his hood up. As the story progresses you get little crumbs of information about him to draw you in more. Early on you learn his parents are dead and his scarred....

Bryn, omg I love her she is a wicked character, she has great bravado. Wes can't help noticing her on arrival and starts watching her from a distance. Within 24 hours of being on the estate Bryn is calling J.T. 'puppet boy' and her invisible at the time host 'captain kirk'.

J.T needs a mention he is Wes's best friend, right-hand man and the face of the business. He gets on really well with Bryn and they have fun Star Trek themed conversations - I really liked J.T.

I loved watching Wes come out of the shadows, he doesn't calm Bryn down as she is great as she is, but they are good together. Their relationship does move quickly, Bryn knows what she likes and is not shy about getting it, she is not after his money though she wasn't even after his heart to begin with, but the more time they spend together the more they need one another.

The book ends HFN and there is another book to come, I will be adding this to my TBR.

4.5 stars

Excerpt #1

A sense of familiarity fills the space between us even though I know we haven’t met. This man is a stranger, but he looks at me as if he wants to know me. He looks at me as if he already does. There’s an intensity to his eyes when they sweep over my face, as firm and as telling as a touch. “I need…” A thud against my ribs as I think about all the things I need—a rewind button. One person in the city who doesn’t hate me by name alone. “I need a loan.” He gives me a slow perusal, from the nervous slide of my tongue along my lips to the high neckline of my dress. I tried to dress professionally—a black cowl-necked sweater and pencil skirt. His strange amber gaze unbuttons my coat, pulls away the expensive cotton, tears off the cotton fabric of my bra and panties. He sees right through me, and I shiver as a ripple of awareness runs over my skin. I’ve met a million men in my life. Shaken hands. Smiled. I’ve never felt as seen through as I do right now. Never felt like someone has turned me inside out, every dark secret exposed to the harsh light. He sees my weaknesses, and from the cruel set of his mouth, he likes them. His lids lower. “And what do you have for collateral?” Nothing except my word. That wouldn’t be worth anything if he knew my name. I swallow past the lump in my throat. “I don’t know.” Nothing. He takes a step forward, and suddenly I’m crowded against the brick wall beside the door, his large body blocking out the warm light from inside. He feels like a furnace in front me, the heat of him in sharp contrast to the cold brick at my back. “What’s your name, girl?” The word girl is a slap in the face. I force myself not to flinch, but it’s hard. Everything about him overwhelms me—his size, his low voice. “I’ll tell Mr. Scott my name.” In the shadowed space between us, his smile spreads, white and taunting. The pleasure that lights his strange yellow eyes is almost sensual, as if I caressed him. “You’ll have to get past me.” My heart thuds. He likes that I’m challenging him, and God, that’s even worse. What if I’ve already failed? I’m free-falling, tumbling, turning over without a single hope to anchor me. Where will I go if he turns me away? What will happen to my father? “Let me go,” I whisper, but my hope fades fast. His eyes flash with warning. “Little Avery James, all grown up.” A small gasp resounds in the space between us. He already knows my name. That means he knows who my father is. He knows what he’s done. Denials rush to my throat, pleas for understanding. The hard set of his eyes, the broad strength of his shoulders tells me I won’t find any mercy here.   


Excerpt #2

“Kinky stuff,” Gabriel says, the corner of his mouth turned up. “What do you know about kinky stuff?” My face feels hot. “I’ve seen the movie, okay? I know about things.” That’s a lie. I squirmed through the movie, lips parted in shock. How did people think of this stuff? Why would any girl like it? And I’m not just a random face in this city. My picture has appeared in the society papers. People know my father. Maybe some of the men were cheated by him, just like Gabriel. Would they want to hurt me in revenge? “Tell me what you know,” Gabriel says. The words are mocking, but something sparks inside me. “I know that some men like to hurt women. I know it makes them feel big and strong to hurt someone weaker.” “And are you weak, little virgin?” No, I want to say. Except I’ve lost everything in the past two months. My life, my school. My friends. I’m a shadow of my former self. Little virgin makes me fight back, though. Gabriel makes me fight back. “I’m doing what I have to do. Is that weak?” His gaze flickers over my body, the yellow of his eyes brighter in the lamp’s glow. When he meets my eyes, there’s a begrudging respect.
