Say When (Something More) by Tara West

Say When (Something More) by Tara West

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancé. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.

Christina Duval

Mist Warrior (Legacy of the Mist Clans) by Kathryn Loch

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
When he was twelve, his name was Branan Strickland. He was the heir to the Wardenship of Inglewood, a title to govern a Royal Forest and the land around it. But Branan’s father was an abusive sod, beating Branan and his mother for sheer sport.

Until the night when his father’s fist landed on the side of his mother’s head – a wound that would kill her in a few short hours. Devastated, Branan spent those last hours with her. Just when he thought his world couldn’t shatter any more, his mother told him the truth of his heritage.

Branan was not Strickland’s son, he was the son of a Scottish Laird, Raulf MacTavish. Strickland had murdered Branan’s true sire and forced his mother into marriage.

Raina MacTavish had just learned she was breeding when Strickland killed the man she loved more than life. Had she not carried Branan, she would have willingly died. Raina had told no one but Raulf of her breeding. After Strickland bedded her, a couple of months later, Raina announced her pregnancy. She did so only because she feared if Strickland knew Branan’s true sire, the blackguard would slay her babe – the last link to her beloved husband.

But now she is dying. Raina knows she must tell Branan the truth. Her heart grieves, she can no longer protect him, but there is a family nearby who once called Raulf and Raina friend.

Raina also knows Branan is growing into the spitting image of his true sire. Soon, Strickland will see his old enemy staring back at him.

Branan has one chance to reclaim what was stolen from him, his title and his father’s stolen sword, a huge Scottish claymore with an emerald set in the pommel and a thistle engraved on its hilt. He knows he must learn the ways of a knight and grow stronger. But Strickland discovers the boy’s heritage and tries to kill him.

Now on the run and wounded, Branan fears Strickland will catch him. He seeks cover in a forest when an intriguing lass with bright blue eyes finds him. To his shock, the girl knows the forest better than anyone. Her name is Catriona and she is part of the family his mother told him about. The girl leads him to safety.

Branan’s trials are only beginning, while he finds a brief respite with Catriona’s family, Strickland does not give up his quest. Branan is forced to flee to his father’s lands in Scotland. He abandons Catriona in the dead of night and leaves his beloved foster family behind.

10 years later, Branan’s foster-brother, Gavin, searches for Branan in Scotland. Gavin finds him and tells Branan, if he wishes to reclaim his legacy, the time to act is now. But Gavin has more news and Branan is devastated again when he learns Catriona has been betrothed to another man.

But Branan’s his heart is not prepared for what greets him when he returns to England. The home of Branan’s foster family and Gavin’s parents, has been burned to the ground. In the ashes, Gavin finds his father’s signet ring.

Catriona…what has happened to her? Many of the local villagers believe her dead as well, but rumors abound, one woman may have escaped fire to flee to the forest….

Cedar Hollow by Tracey Smith

Cedar Hollow by Tracey Smith

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Cassidy St. Claire still wasn’t sure what she’d been hoping to find when she began the search for her birth parents, but all she’d uncovered was a bunch of death certificates and one ailing great-uncle who’d finally kicked the bucket last week. Since Cassidy is the last surviving member of the family that means his estate, a small seaside bed and breakfast in New Hampshire, has been left to her. An odd stipulation in his Will requires that she appear in person to inherit the property. Cassidy isn’t very hopeful that this weekend trip will lead to anything more than a momentary distraction from her busy life, and an excuse to take her convertible for a long drive up the coast.

She certainly isn’t prepared for Mr. Tall Handsome and Brooding; Ben Riley has been running the bed and breakfast for the last several years, and he is definitely less than welcoming. His instant dislike for her is staggering, but his penetrating green eyes burn with a dangerous mixture of hostility and attraction.

Within days of her arrival an attempt is made on her life and then another. Suddenly Cassidy finds herself trying to unravel the mysteries of the past, while outrunning the dangers of the present and finally turning to the strong, protective arms of Ben Riley and a future she’d never imagined.

About the Author:
Tracey Smith lives in a small town with her husband and two small children. She began her writing career in 2009 with the publication of her first novel Love’s Fate. Since that first day when she decided to sit down at her computer and write a story, she hasn’t been able to stop. Writing is her passion and has become a necessary part of her life. Sometimes there are stories that just beg to be told.

The Nightlife: New York (The Nightlife Series) by Travis Luedke

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.

Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, pimps and dirty cops – the Nightlife New York is never boring.

Aaron Pilan’s life is forever changed when he’s shot trying to rescue a drop-dead gorgeous woman on the streets of New York. Aaron is thrust into the shocking world of vampiric slavery when Michelle shares her blood to save his life.

Michelle’s existence as a solitary vampire is also altered when she accepts this naive young man into her life. Bound by her blood, Aaron is subject to her authority. He walks a tightrope of strictly controlled feeding regiments and intense sexual adventures while catering to the neurotic control-freak tendencies of his new master. She vows to eliminate him if he proves too difficult to control.

This story is bold and evocative, infusing blood, sex, love and turmoil in an urban drama about two vampires battling evil outside and within themselves.

 

˃˃˃ “If you like your vampires vicious and bloody, and your erotica with a plot, this is the book for you.”

 

˃˃˃ “Luedke brings his main characters to life, both incredibly flawed and powerfully charismatic, with a wonderful writing style, in this unique twist on the Vampire.”

 

˃˃˃ “This is unlike any vampire tale I have ever read, and is as far removed from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, as New York is from Transylvania. Travis Luedke has fashioned a compelling tale of love, passion, violence and steamy hot sex, set against the backdrop of the Big Apple.”

A Matter of Marriage by Ann Collins

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Can a marriage of convenience become a marriage of forever?

After her father’s untimely death, grieving hotel heiress Julia Fairbanks is shocked by the stipulation in his last will and testament. She must marry within six months of his death or lose her livelihood and beloved home, the 400-room Hotel Grand Victoria on the shores of San Diego’s Coronado Island. Julia is determined to manage the hotel even though her bold choice raises eyebrows. Finding no way around the stipulation, she begins her search for a husband, unaware that someone in her midst wants her out of the hotel forever. Dead.

Alex MacLean, an emotionally and physically scarred drifter with secrets, arrives at the storybook-style Hotel Grand Victoria in answer to an advertisement for carpenters. A job offer for the position of husband is not what he had in mind. However, he can’t resist appointing himself protector of the hotel’s beautiful owner when an attempt is made on her life. His attraction to Julia grows quickly, but Alex wants love and a family, not a marriage of convenience. Not only that, Julia doesn’t know about his past, and Alex wants to keep it that way.

From Booklist

It’s been two years since Annie Galloway’s husband died, and she is finally putting her life back together, even though she stays in Shelter Rock Cove, Maine. Annie has never lived anywhere else, and her life is tied to the small community, which is a blessing and a curse. Her mother-in-law took her in at sixteen when her parents died, and she feels grateful for her love, but her husband was not the saint that everyone thinks he was. When she meets Sam Butler, a Manhattan investment broker hiding out in the small town and reevaluating his life, they instantly connect, but some townspeople are suspicious of the newcomer and his relationship with Annie. Sam and Annie do keep secrets from each other, hoping to keep their newfound love separate from the past, but prying neighbors may tear them apart. Once again Bretton creates a tender love story about two people who, when they find something special, will go to any length to keep it. Patty Engelmann

Vampire in Denial (Family Blood Ties) by Dale Mayer

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Warning – this book contains some swearing and has a cliffhanger ending!

Blood doesn’t just make her who she is…it also makes her what she is.

Like being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn’t hard enough, Tessa’s throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can’t get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the…blood.

Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle–high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He’s smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa’s dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.

Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one.

Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what? 
EXCERPT

No, Cody had some serious skills, at least according to David. It would take a lot for someone to get the drop on him.
“Psst.”
He just didn’t have much class. Turning around, Tessa watched Cody land in front of her. His graceful controlled landing made her instantly jealous.
“There’s no sign of anything unusual going on.” ”No, of course not. Why would there be? It’s not like they’re going to advertise that they’ve kidnapped humans.” She studied the huge stone mansion. “The captives are most likely to be downstairs,” she said slowly, eyeing the lowest level. ”Whoa. You’re not going into the house. If you’re determined to take this further, we go back to our parents and let them go to the council. They will determine the best course of action.” Tessa stared at him in disbelief. Everything about the night had taken on a surreal appearance. She was here, where Jared was being held, with someone who could actually help her and he wanted to go for their parents. No knight riding to the rescue here.
Then he’d been raised by the old belief that vampires don’t go against vampires – without just cause. She didn’t think she could come up with enough evidence to prove her case.She snagged his arm, willing him to listen. “We have to at least see if they are here.”
“No. No way.” He pulled away and turned, prepared to leave.
“Please.” ”No Tessa.” He shook his head, his vampire eyes glowing with terrible heat. “That’s enough. This isn’t a kid’s game. This is vampire business.” ”And who’s going to believe me? No one. I’m not like you. My word doesn’t mean anything to the others. If you don’t see that Jared’s been taken captive yourself, you won’t be able to convince them either.” He shook his head. Fine. She’d go in alone. Turning away, she headed to the back of the house. “Go back home. I don’t need you.” ”What the…” He raced behind her. “Tessa stop. You can’t go inside there. You’re not allowed.”
“And they’re allowed to take humans?” She snorted. “I don’t think so.” The moon slid out from behind the clouds, highlighting the lower level of the house. Off to the left, a set of stairs cut down to a narrow door. Probably the cellar. Perfect. She picked up her pace, reaching for the knob in seconds. She bolted though the unlocked door before Cody could stop her. Down a narrow hallway, she fled through another door that led to a wide open space. Empty space. Damn it. Could the prisoners have been moved already? How? There hadn’t enough time for that.”There, are you satisfied now?” She spun around at the sound of Cody’s voice. “No.” She walked the perimeter of the room. At the far end, the huge room curved down and around. At the far end, her nostrils flared. Her weird knowing sense kicking in. Animal. Fear. Pain. Ancient farm smells permeated the air. Hay. Manure. Blood. ”What’s the matter?” Cody whispered.She looked at him. “Can’t you smell it?” ”Smell what?” ”Pain.”
