Series Spotlight With Author Twyla Turner

Scarred SeriesIf you have not read Scarred by Twyla Turner, you better get yo life then go click it up! Sloan Stryker…whooo chile. That name alone makes you wanna drop the draws. When I saw the cover to Scarred, I was immediately sucked in. One, you rarely find a book cover that captures the true essence of who the characters are, and two, it’s a custom painting! This is Sloan Stryker! As you read this story, you will never question what Sloan looks like. The detail is phenomenal right down to the scars on his face. (Big ups to the artist who did these!)

Cover Reveal: Something Old by Emeline Piaget

Undeniable Love

Before we get to the cover reveal of Something Old, Something New by Emeline Piaget, let’s take a refresher course: Something Old is a spinoff of Undeniable Love. Wyatt and Stephane were the it couple in that story, but they also had a couple of BFFs who played strong, supporting roles. That would be these folks:

Phil and Syd
Phil and Sydney

If you’ve read Undeniable Love, then you know these two were destined to have their own story because these characters are a trip. So without further ado, I give you the cover to Phil and Syd’s story:

Is this not a gorgeous cover?! It’s so simplistically elegant. I love how the roses pop with subtle color against the black and white backdrop of the piano.

Now I can already see a few of you scratching your heads and are asking yourselves: I thought she only promotes IR/AA Romance? This ain’t IR, and it dang sure ain’t AA…

Well, it definitely isn’t either per se, but the supporting cast are, and there are elements of both infused into this story. Besides Wyatt and Steph making appearances, we have some new characters who play prominently into the storyline.

Something Old is dropping in early May. Make sure you add it (and Undeniable Love) to your TBR!

 

Cover Reveal: Autumn Grey Havoc Trilogy Box Set

I’ve read all three books, and it’s a good series. Now you can get all three books in one convenient volume on 4/28! Be sure to add to your TBR.

Title: Havoc Trilogy Boxset
Author :Autumn Grey
Genre : Romance , Erotic

 A three month modelling contract in Paris.

Two strangers drawn together by fate.

A stalker hell-bent on keeping them apart.

Selene Michaels is determined to never let anyone make her feel inferior again. After a painful divorce, she finds herself in Paris on a working holiday, hopeful that this will be the opportunity she has been waiting for. She intends to have fun and maybe find someone to flirt with; someone who will show her a good time, treat her right. What she does not expect to find is Remington St. Germain and his adorable son, Adrien. Remington is intense, devastatingly hot and a Prince Charming on the outside, but a dirty talking, insatiable devil behind closed doors and not the type to give up on something that he wants. Adrien makes her loss almost bearable. Selene soon realizes that life with Remington is not only interesting, but adventurous and dangerous. Someone is eager to keep Remington and her apart, and will go into great lengths to make sure that happens. 

Remington is at a crossroads. He can either let Selene go, forget about her. Or pursue her with determination, just like he does everything else. Otherwise he will be right back where he was before she came into his life. The clock is ticking, and danger looms closer. He will do anything to save the woman who is fast becoming a part of his soul.

 

Sometimes life gives you a second chance. But what happens when danger threatens that chance?

Another Exclusive Sneak Peek Of S&M IV by Vera Roberts

Warning: This post contains explicit content and is meant for mature audiences 18 years or older, so if you ain’t, then get ta steppin!

Vera

Ms. Roberts has blessed us with another hella hot sneak peek.

fire-starter-th

“Um…” Mariana wanted to press the issue but Scott made the decision for her. “…I wanted to say thank you for the very generous graduation gift. It was completely unexpected.”

“It’s something you’ve always wanted and I thought it would be a nice gift for you,” Scott admired Dove’s nude body before him. She kneeled down and crawled to him, resting her head on his lap and awaited his next instruction. “I’m just glad you enjoyed it.”

Mariana wanted to ask Scott if he actually attended her graduation and where was he hiding, if he did. It was something she was better off not knowing, after all. “I do. It was very nice of you.”

“Was there anything else, Mari?” Scott snapped his fingers and Dove rolled over on her knees. She unbuckled Scott’s pants and pulled out his cock. She began to suck it.

“Um…” Mariana wondered how badly did she want to bring up an old situation that might have been false. If Scott was unfaithful to her, it would’ve been with Caprina. Or maybe. He often traveled without her and gone for days at a time to oversee shoots and meet with other executives. She’d heard about numerous stories about executives having multiple families in different states and her mind went into overdrive.

Still, Mariana had to know. She needed a reason – anything, really – to hate him. “…Did you ever cheat on me?”

“Did I what?” Scott was certain he didn’t hear her correctly. “Cheat on you?”

“One of the women here said you two dated for over a year and I just wanted to verify with the source if that was true.” Mariana replied.

Scott already knew who it was. He made the mistake of sleeping with her after a night of too many shots and a severe case of misjudgment at the CLIO awards. The sex wasn’t half bad but Scott made it a point not to sleep with her again. It was that night he realized even he had hard limits. “Erin?”

Mariana almost choked on her spit. “Um…”

“You don’t have to play coy with me, Mari. I know who you’re referring to.” Scott looked down at Dove sucking his cock. “I’m well aware of what Erin has been saying.”

The cryptic reply didn’t help Mariana at all. If anything, Scott just added onto the rumors. “So it’s not true?” Mariana clarified.

“What difference would it make now?” He asked.

Mariana felt a swell of heartbreak and a curious anger forming within her like a category five storm. Was he messing with her emotions like he strangely used to on occasion when they were together? Or did he tell her in not so many words that the asshole she had come to known and loathed really did step out on her?

She briefly wondered why she even cared if the so-called infidelity happened within the past year. They may not have been together at that point and it bothered her more than it should’ve. “It makes a big difference, yes.”

“How?”

Mariana pulled the receiver away and wondered if she needed to clear her ears. How in the hell did he just flip back on her? The numerous trashy dramas and reality shows she loved to watch told her it was a defense mechanism and just maybe, he was confirming what Erin had said. “How?” She repeated and thought about why she even bothered entertaining the question.

“I thought you knew our relationship better than that.” His voice was calm as if they were talking about the weather and not a serious accusation. “Furthermore, I thought you knew me better than that.”

“The fact you’re not answering the question tells me yes.” She replied with a twinge of anger and sadness.

“The fact I am questioning why you’re asking me tells you nothing of the sort,” he shot back.

Monday Musings: No More Shhhh…Let’s Talk About The “R” Word

shhhh

This post has been brewing in my mind and in my heart for a minute, and truthfully, it’s been the reason I’ve decided to change the primary focus of this blog from interracial romance to include both African-American and multicultural romance. The “r” word I wanna briefly touch on is race-the big damn elephant in the room when it comes to not only interracial romance but mainstream romance as well.

More importantly though, I really wanna talk about what I perceive to be the deliberate bashing of black men that I often read about in some of these IR romance novels. I mean these brothas are portrayed as if Satan himself birthed him the way they do these sistas so dirty. Then she meets Mr. White Savior who rides to the rescue to save her from her brutish, black ex. I literally want to SCREAM when I come across stories like this!

10347632_10152620639169748_8186742826701542873_n

Now, don’t get me wrong, I get it-to an extent. The ex has to be a horrible person who has hurt this woman beyond repair, but damn, when I read some of these stories, my immediate question is often, “Who hurt you?” As in you, the author. What kind of message does this send? Or am I personally reading to much into this? Some may think so, but I be feeling some type of way when I read this mess…

The other thing that makes me wanna go into orbit is this colorblind sentiment I often read about. Noooooooooooooooooooooope. I do not subscribe to it, because personally, to tell me when you look at me you do not see color is to deny me of my humanity and all the struggle that black people have endured in this world, but I digress…Now, I understand this may all be a sincere attempt (or even your true philosophy) to be politically correct, but let’s stop pretending not to see race when we’re reading and writing these stories.

Isn’t the fact that this man is white (or non-black) one of the main attractions? Isn’t it the fact that this man’s skin is so vastly different from ours part of the appeal? I’m not saying it’s the only reason the dude is the end all, be all, but c’mon, if his skin tone weren’t a factor, then why is there a whole genre called interracial romance? Instead of “When I see you, I don’t see color?”, can we be like, “Yeah, I’m black, you’re white, I’m feeling your vibe, I acknowledge our differences, and it’s one of the things that I love about us so let’s not trip over it”?  While you may not “see” color, everybody else and they mama sure will…and will remind you of it too!

Also let me state that these are my opinions, and I speak only for myself. I know nothing will change, but I had to talk about it…

Book Review: Declan + Coraline

I haven’t posted a review in some time, and I need to get back to that. So…here we go….

Declan + Coraline (Ruthless People, #0.5)Declan + Coraline by J.J. McAvoy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first ever read by author JJ McAvoy, and I enjoyed it-overall. From what I understand, Declan+Coraline is the prequel to her popular series Irish mafia series Ruthless People. From the way this story reads, it can be considered as a standalone as the other installments in the series focus primarily on Declan’s cousin/brother Liam Callahan.

Declan Callahan and Coraline Wilson are polar opposites in every since of the word. He is a privileged, yet ruthless Irish mobster, while Coraline is a docile black American princess. They do have a few things in common though: They’re both wealthy in their own right (although by very different yet not uncommon means). As young kids, they both lost their parents violently, and they are wildly attracted to one another. The chemistry is off the charts falling off the page crazy good!

Without giving away the entire story, Declan lives by the family code, and it’s simply family first. Bros over hoes. Business before pleasure. Do.not.fall.in.love. Well you know what? Coraline bust all that bull wide open cause she had ol boy SPRUNG from the first time he laid eyes on that ass-literally! Coraline comes off as a little naïve which is understandable given her sheltered upbringing and living with her mooching aunt, uncle, and cousin. She sees the good in everything and everybody, whereas Declan is bow down or lay down. There’s also the cultural factor to contend with. The Callahan’s creed is “we stick to your own”. Will Coraline be accepted not only because she’s not Irish, but also because she’s black? Will the truth of Declan’s lifestyle and family history destroy what he and Coraline are trying to build? Or will she woman up and fight for her man?

This story could have been great if it were fleshed out a little more. The author admittedly wrote this after being pressured by fans to give Declan and Coraline their own story which leads me to believe that they really struck a chord with some in the Liam stories. I just wish it were a little longer and Coraline a little stronger…

Synopsis:

After a whirlwind week of hot sex and growing affection, Nicole and Gabriel were forced to part ways and to return to real life. For a while they danced around each other, meeting up when they could, the distance between them rivaled only by their desire to be together again.

Now these lovers are no longer star-crossed. They’re in the same city at the same time and can finally indulge their insatiable passion. At least until Gabriel’s increasingly popular band goes on tour.

But the ticking clock of his budding music career isn’t the only obstacle to contend with. A blast from Gabriel’s wild past, a guy that kept Nicole warm in Gabriel’s absence, and fear of what the future holds all converge just as they’ve begun to realize this might be love…

Monday Musings: Hypocricize Much?

keep-calm-and-girl-bye-3

Yeah, I made that word up because I see a lot of hypocrisy going on amongst romance readers and fans, and I’m like…

Go on wit dat bullshit

Example 1:

“I do not read stories about infidelity. Nope. That man/woman is the scum of the earth.”

On the flip side:

“Ooh, I just love dark romances! I love a troubled man who chokes his woman out, rapes has forced sex with her, then proclaims his love. He had a rough childhood so I forgive him.”

ME:

bye felicia

Example 2:

“I don’t write reviews.”

On the flipside:

In all the groups talking bout “Ooh this book was so good” or “This book was terrible. Please don’t waste your money”…

ME:

10392327_10204163866195430_2091178108925904300_n

Example 3:

“I don’t read books by new authors because I’ve been burned too many times.”

On the flipside:

Fangirls over sub par book by a veteran author because hey, that’s their fave or…

Complains that there aren’t any good books out…

Flirty
& Feisty Romance Novel
In the land of Igodomigodo in 1470, a man’s word was law. But in the hands of a wild
maiden, Uvbi, lies the future, where women might have a say. When her freedom
is endangered, Uvbi issues a threat to Nagudia before she disappears.
Nagudia, a renowned bronze caster conceals his past to gain freedom, but when he hears a
scream in the bush, he takes action and his destiny becomes intertwined with
Uvbi’s. Are their lives destined together or will the journey to come uncover
truths that will throw them apart?

(Paperback)

 

Excerpt: 
Uvbi’s
body shuddered, until recognition slowly drizzled into her soul. Indescribable
joy drenched her cold bones, when her heart put a name to the voice.
It was
the sharp, stern voice which plagued her since he rescued her from the bush.
Even
then, she proceeded with caution. One foot in front of the other, she found her
way to the doorway shielded by palm fronds.
What if
Nagudia wasn’t alone?
‘Uvbi, it
is me, Nagudia. I bring you good news.’
His words
rang in her ears.
Shocked
out of her wits, warmth mingled with relief. Her heart gyrated with joy. But
good sense stamped down the flood of elation.
‘Have you
come to send me back?’
The men
in Igodomigodo worked together. She trusted no one.
‘I do no
such thing. I’m a man of peace.’
She
didn’t wait to hear more. Uvbi rushed out of her hiding place, and brushed the
many discomforts, and worries of the past ten sunsets behind. Without
restraint, she flung herself into his strong arms.
Oh, her
heaving chest left him breathing too fast now, and again. Not to mention her
generous hips and legs, that could turn a man’s good heart into a sinful cave.

 

 
 

 

I love writing romance novels that are as intriguing and flirty as they are
entertaining. Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are a wide range of
toe-curling, skin-tingling romance books with compelling characters who have
heart and soul.The stories are dotted with unexpected twists and turns and conflict and are
set in fascinating Africa, enticing Europe and America. The witty dialogue
between the characters keeps you thoroughly entertained.

If you want to cuddle up and relax, grab a copy, travel with the characters and
sail away to Pleasure Island. They cure boredom and relieve stress!

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel. My first contemporary romance
novel; LOITERING SHADOWS was published in May 2010. Other Flirty & Feisty
Romance Novels are, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, the National Novel Writing
Month 2010 winning novel, THE GARDENER’s ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN, the spicy
hot HUSBAND to RENT, Stolen Valentine Kiss (Holiday Series #1) and Kiss My Lips
(Holiday Series #2).

I’m working on my first historical romance novel – a trilogy. My job is taking
care of my gorgeous, life-size hero of a husband and two vibrant and loving
‘near teenagers’.

I love to read romance novels, swim and watch TV shows.
