Ranson by Faith S. Lynn

Title: Ransom

Author: Faith S. Lynn

Genre: New Adult / Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: June 30, 2014

What would you do to get it all back?

Desperate, careless, frantic, hieness, and frenzied. These are just some of the words that could describe my state of being after everything was ripped from under me. I will do anything to get it all back. And I do mean ANYTHING. I just didn't expect what I would get in the process. She changes everything.

Carefree pretty much sums up my entire life. My father has made sure that I have never and will never want for anything. I have a fiance on the fast track to business success and a best friend that will always be there for me. My future is set and I couldn't be happier with it. Then it all changed in an instant. He took me away from everything that I thought I wanted, needed. Now nothing will ever be the same.


I am a New Adult author. From Lies to Promises is my debut novel! I am wife to the best husband of the freaking universe and mother to 3 majorly awesome kids! Reading, Xbox, cooking and WINE just barely scrape the surface of who I am. Everyone who knows me will say I am a nerd... and I would agree. Want to know a secret? I am a super hero. True story!

I have an obsession with anything people consider odd and I think learning is the bees knees. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and was an accountant for 7 years. I know, boooring! But I like having a problem and seeing a solution.

Maybe, just maybe, this is why I enjoy writing so much!

Zane's Choice by Mardi Maxwell

Title: Zane's Choice

Author: Mardi Maxwell

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

Publication Date: August 5, 2014

Beautiful, curvy, Ravyn Templeton was raised by a controlling father who forced her to marry a man she detested. Three years ago her husband, Charles Dolman, took her to a BDSM club in Houston to show her how a real woman could satisfy a man. When he chose a sub and began a scene with her, Ravyn refused to watch him and watched another Dom instead. The lesson she learned that night was what a Dom could do for a woman and ever since then the unknown Dom has haunted her dreams. After years of fighting for her freedom, Ravyn has finally managed to escape her abusive marriage only to discover her ex-husband tried to have her killed.

Zane Ramsey is an Assistant District Attorney and co-owner of Club Mystique, the BDSM club he and his brothers built on their Texas ranch. He’s also the Dom Ravyn saw three years ago in Houston. When they finally meet they’re instantly attracted to each other and against his better judgment Zane begins an affair with Ravyn. When her ex-husband Charles Dolman accuses her of laundering money for Carlos Mendez’ drug cartel, and Ravyn refuses to answer Zane’s questions, he leaves her. 

Ravyn is devastated but let’s Zane go to protect him. She’s being blackmailed by Carlos Mendez, and she doesn’t dare tell Zane the truth. After she’s arrested, Fate steps in and brings them together again. Now, only Zane can save her if he loves her enough to fight for her.

I was born in Utah but I’ve traveled throughout America and lived in west Texas and the mountains of Colorado. I wrote my first erotic romance in the summer of 2013. It was accepted and published that same year. Since then I’ve written three more books in the Doms of Club Mystique series. At this time I’m busy writing the fifth and final book in the series. My heroes are tough cowboys with military backgrounds and my heroines are strong, sassy and submissive. I want the reader to fall in love with my characters and feel their pain and their joy so I put a lot of emotions and suspense in my books.

Other than writing, I love to read, travel, garden, swim and hike with my family, as well as go to the local drive-in movie with a carload of friends and a huge container of home-made cheese popcorn.

The Baby Contract by Olivia Starke

Title: The Baby Contract (The Billionaire Bachelor Series Book 1)

Author: Olivia Starke

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

Publication Date: July 21, 2014

Liam Whitmore III is floored by the surprise stipulation in his father's will—provide an heir within one year or he'll lose the controlling portion of Whitmore Incorporated to his cousin Spencer. The corporation is Liam's life. He'll do anything to keep his cousin's hands off of it, including finding a woman who'll bear his child. Though finding the right woman seems an impossible task since he doesn't have room in his life for anything except running the company. He doesn't want a wife, just an heir.

Abby Haden's family is about to lose their ranch, the only life her ailing father and brother have ever known. She feels helpless and is desperate to help. When the most coveted bachelor in Austin, Liam Whitmore III, also known as the Takeover Tyrant, offers to pay her to have his child it seems too incredible to be true. She's all but given up hope of ever having a baby. Not only will her dream of being a mother come true, but she can also save the family ranch.

It was just supposed to be a business deal, but Abby and Liam find it hard to keep their hearts out of what it takes to make a baby. Even as they sort out their feelings, others have their eye on Whitmore Incorporated. Liam and Abby will soon discover how far they'll go to make sure Abby never produces that heir.

Content Warning: contains graphic sex, explicit language, mild violence, and a heroine with a history of domestic abuse

Olivia Starke calls the Ozarks home. One of the most beautiful areas in the country, she loves hiking trails with her dogs, kayaking on the numerous waterways, and enjoying southern Missouri's fresh air and sunshine.

She's also 'Mom' to four dogs, a growing number of kitties that show up at her door, and four VERY spoiled horses that do little to earn their keep. Not that she'd ever hold that against them.

She's a HUGE fangirl of Doctor Who and to a lesser extent Supernatural, and has a pretty interesting love triangle (or square?) going on in her head between the Doctor and the Winchesters.

My 5 Star Review for The Space Between Us by Anie Michaels

5 Stars! The Space Between Us by Anie Michaels

I absolutely loved this book!! I love how the author takes
you through the life of Asher and Charlie, not just one time period. You start
out seeing how Asher comes to Charlie’s rescue when they are in the 5th
grade. At the same time, you get to meet the supporting character, Reeve. We
quickly learn that Charlie recently moved to a new town after the death of her
mother from cancer. The story jumps to the three kids in high school. This is
where we see the fire burning between Asher and Charlie start, only Charlie
doesn’t see it. One of my favorite scenes in the school dance. Asher is trying
to be so coy yet at the same time he is yelling (figuratively) at Charlie about
his feelings.


Ahh, sweet high school love! The author did an awesome job
of pulling you into their budding relationship. It made me yearn for those
first sweet touches and gentle kisses of a new relationship. I could feel the
butterflies in my own stomach as Asher and Charlie shared their first kiss.

We see their relationship develop as they began to explore
one another and before we know the two young love birds are going away to
college. Once in college things erupt however. Although we have already fallen
in love with Asher, we fall again once we see how kind his heart is after Reeve
is fallen victim in a devastating situation. They we get to hate Asher for a
little bit as him and Charlie experience their first real fight. But don’t
worry, we fall back in love with Asher soon enough!

Before we know what is happening, the young sweet couple is
in their early 30’s. Asher is a lawyer and Charlie an artist. And this my
lovely readers, is where I end. The last several chapters will tear you apart,
they will make you cry with sadness and jump for joy because there can never be
a Happily Ever After without a little drama! The author does a marvelous job of bringing the reader (as well as Asher) back to the start and reminding us all why we love Charlie and what true love really is. So rest assure that this book with NOT leave you hanging!!
