Review of Slightly Wicked

Slightly Wicked (Bedwyn Saga #2)
Amazon          B&N 
by  Mary Balogh
3.5 of 5 Stars

Description:
With his laughing eyes and wild, rakish good looks, Lord Rannulf Bedwyn is a hard man to resist. To Judith Law, a woman in need of rescue when her stagecoach overturns, Rannulf is simply her savior, a heroic stranger she will reward with one night of reckless passion before she must become a companion to her wealthy aunt. Imagine Judith's shock when the same stranger turns out to be among England's most eligible bachelors...and when he arrives at Harwood Grange to woo her cousin. Certainly, they had made no vows, no promises, but Rannulf never did forget his uninhibited lover...nor did she forget that one delicious night. And as scandal sets the household abuzz, Rannulf proposes a solution...but when Judith refuses to have him-in love or wedlock-Rannulf has only one choice: to wage a campaign of pure pleasure to capture the heart of the woman who has already won his.

Review:

Mary Balough is a new to me author and I think she is one of my new favorite historical romance writers. 
Slightly Wicked is the second book within this series, which I did not know when I picked it up in the store. However, this book read as if it were a standalone, which I love. 
This book had me hooked from the start.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

Today's teaser is from my upcoming release, Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4).
The release date is to be announced.

~ Rain ran like rivulets down his face, the droplets caught on his lashes like tiny crystals, a delicate contrast to the harsh gun metal gray of his eyes.
Falcon studied the group of Red Order Hunters that gathered in the ally below. Shadows clung to him, concealing him with their darkness. His prey's laughter sailed on the wind, their merriment grating his nerves. Falcon's hand tightened about the grip of his dagger, his knuckles turned white. 
Poor bastards, they were peacefully oblivious to the specter of death that stalked them. ~

Review of Mail-Order Bride

Amazon
Mail Order Bride
by Susan Donovan 
2.5 of 5 Stars

Description:
Desperate to escape an arranged marriage, Charleston belle Camille Sinclair answers an ad for a mail-order bride which will lead her all the way to San Francisco. Taking a husband sight-unseen is better than marrying the older lech her aunt had suggested -- and may give her the freedom she needs to finger her long-lost brother. But when Camille arrives, she discovers handsome logger Seth Braden has absolutely no desire to marry...until she charms him with her sweet nature -- and even sweeter kisses. (From Goodreads)

Review:
This book has been sitting on my shelf for years...probably since high school. Wow!

Sexy Snippets Tuesday

(Sexy Snippets is a weekly feature hosted by Reading Between the Wines for the 18+ crowd.)

    Tuesdays just got sexier.

Today's snippet is from my current work in progress, Passion's Prey 
- Can the demon seduce the angel?-

~ Amber tipped her head back riding him in a slow, deep, languorous rhythm, every stroke tore at his very being, his heart, his soul. 
Gregory dug his nails into the palms of his hands, straining against the metal of the handcuffs.  He needed more.

Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4)

Work on Caressed by Shadows (Rulers of Darkness #4) is under way. I do not have a release date as of yet, since the book is still a work in progress. However, I do have the cover and I will be sharing it and a sale date in the coming months - be on the look out!
Caressed by Shadows has been a long time in the making for our hero and heroine. Falcon and Sonya have been denying/resisting their feelings for one another for 200 years - spending as much time a part as possible. Their romance is forbidden. According to vampire law, a Black Knight (Falcon) and a noble (Sonya) cannot have relations of any kind, for a knight is to protect and guard the nobles with their lives and conflicting interests can be fatal.  

Here is a peek at Sonya and Falcon from Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1):

Excerpt from Chapter 27

~ Glancing over his shoulder at the women, Dorian chuckled, “And this will be the perfect opportunity for you and Sonya to become better acquainted.”
            Falcon’s eyes turned sharp. “You know that nothing could possibly happen between us. It is forbidden.”
“Have you ever thought that some rules are meant to be broken?”

Review of Before the Moon Rises

Before the Moon Rises (Ritter Werewolves, #1)
Amazon       Barnes & Noble
by Catherine Bybee
3.5 of 5 Stars
Novella

Description:

After a twelve-hour shift in a busy emergency room,  Janet O'Brien is beat. Her last patient arrives unconscious and naked. She's lead to believe he is a psyche patient off his meds. However, once he awakens, Janet is charmed by his million-dollar smile and agrees to give him a ride home.

Werewolf, Max Ritter notices the sassy nurse when he awakens after a night under the full moon. Unfortunately  his arch-rival is drawn to Janet as well. In order to keep her out of harm's way, he opts to keep her close. When the chemistry between them sparks, Max discovers a completely new reason to keep Janet safe.
(From Goodreads)

Review:


In  this paranormal world there are werewolves. One can be born a werewolf or be changed into one. Those that are born have the option to accept the change and take wolf form every full moon or to remain human – if born were transforms once, they will always transform. These werewolves are not immortal, but that does not mean they aren't sexy.
Janet O’Brien tired and more than ready to go home after a long shift in the E.R. The handsome, naked, unconscious man was to her last patient of the day.
