Day 12 of the 13 days of S.A. Price: The Bride Wore Latex

Its here!!  Its here!!  Finally Friday!!  Welcome to Day 12 of S.A. Prices 13 day event.  I will be wrapping this up but I am in no way done with reading this authors work!!  Next up is The Bride Wore Latex, not exactly what your picturing ...but close.  It was a naughty number given to her by some of her new family....Let's take a look:

This story takes place in the space between the last chapter of the book THIS IS FOREVER and the Epilogue. It is in no way a stand alone, so we urge you to not read this until you have read the other books in the series, or this will not make any sense, and just seem like erotica. It is not. 

If you have just stumbled across this story, (possibly because you liked the name of the book or the cover photo) the series, 13 Shades of Red starts with the prequel story You Burn Me, goes to Giving up the Ghost, followed by The Serendipity of Karma, and then This is Forever. It should be read in order. 

We hope you enjoy this extra, and that you stick with us for book #3 in the series, Make Damn Sure, coming Spring 2014.

Its true...the title does make it sound like a little hot erotic short, when in actuality its a continuance in the series.  It sort of wraps up Lola and least it puts them on a different level.  While I loved seeing these two again, I was also extremely happy to see our other demons popup!  This truly is a fun-filled series and I cant wait for the next book!!

Day 11 of the 13 days of S.A. Price: You Burn Me

Happy Thursday!!  I just can't wait for this week to be over so I can be on my way to Savannah and AAD!!  So much stuff lined up and I get to visit in person with the amazing S.A. Price.  A true treat.  So we are back to the series that I absolutely love:  13 Shades:  You Burn Me.    Hands down, once I started reading it I could not put it down!  Its engaging and creative and just all around fun!!  So let me intoduce you to X and Dante:

A priestess of The Morrigan, Xxieda Rolla is a woman who has known success in her business, fulfillment in her family life and is only missing one thing: the love of the man that would have her for always. Sent to Shadow Heights New York by her goddess to find him, she meets the ever tasty, ever surly Dante Barratt. Sparks fly, and so does Amaretto Latte.

Dante, a dealer of rare and illegal commodities, and a very tempestuous fire demon might want the woman who's brown eyes haunt him, but knows better then to get involved with someone who just screams purity. Shes hot, and successful in ways he never could be, and knows a man that just gave away his soul like he did didn't deserve a woman like that.

After a chance encounter on a dark street corner, and an earth shattering kiss, Both are powerless to deny the chemistry between them... until Xxieda tells him her secret: shes a virgin.

Caught between his head and his heart, can Dante accept the fact that Fate sometimes gives us exactly what we really need, not what we think we want?

This book was one of my favorites, from the second that Dante got coffee spilled in his lap.  He was a total jerk and completely deserved it!!  XXieda is one of The Morrigan's favored priestess and is such that X has remained pure all of her life in order to best serve her goddesss.  When Morrigan tells her that her fated one is near, X sets off on an adventure to find him.  All she knows is that he was in Shadow Heights.  Considering the area size, that wasn't a lot to gone on, but, X had waited this

X is probably one of my favorite characters in the series. She is lucky professionally and spiritually but not so lucky in the love department.  I can completely relate.  She loves her job and cares very deeply for the band and her goddess.  Combine that with her fashion sense and amazing humor, you have one killer package!!   Unfortunately up until now she was the only one that noticed.

Dante is a bit of a loner type.  He has friends and associates he works with but he truly would rather be alone.  So hes surly and a tad rude and completely at a loss on how to deal with X.  Especially when they keep bumping into each other (literally).

The best part of this book  (to me) is a particular scene where the Morrigan is talking to Dante about X.  She tells him she had other plans for X but because of his kiss, that future was wiped away as a possibility.  I liked that.  Sort of a fate vrs free will.  It was very unique to this book and made the book just that much more enjoyable!!!  This is an incredible story!!

Day 10 of the 13 days with S.A. Price: Consort

Happy Hump Day my tantalizing team!! Today we are going to talk about Djinn.  Now there is an interesting mix of folklore about their actual exsistence.  Personally, if you watch Supernatural?  They probably are more like that.  Lulling you into a blissful dream while eating you.  You die happy...the Djinn gets dinner.  Win  I would imagine that this species would be arrogant, immortal and extremely powerful...not unlike our own Nick.  Let's take a look at his story:

Two stories... one book. 

The Bargain 
As a Djinn, the most powerful race of genies, Nicodemus Marsh is 
sent in to deal with a fiery Janey Duvall after she refuses to help 
the exiled demon prince get rid of the problems in a business 
endeavor in the east. Oozing with sex appeal, Nicodemus begins 
a seduction Janey can barely resist. After a very erotic encounter,
Janey finds out she’s bound to Nicodemus, and has three wishes 
to make. The bargain? Three wishes, and in return, she’s his sexual 
slave for one hundred years. 

The Job 
Janey Duvall, newly bound consort to the Djinn Nicodemus Marsh, is 
having a few minor problems with the delivery of a contract, namely, 
the assassin is refusing to finish the job. Knowing this is not normal 
behavior, she decides that going to Beijing, the city the hit is 
supposed to take place, is the best course of action. 

Marsh is intrigued by the idea, having a few of his own that involve 
Janey and an auction, and agrees to go, even calling in his marker 
from his most recent job of taming the fiery woman that became
his consort to help with the investigation. 

When Marsh is faced with the task of transforming Janey for their 
investigation, will his glamour hold up to the scrutiny and allow
them to prevail, or will he lose the one woman he could ever 
give his heart to?

WOOOW.  This was a smoking hot read.  I loved loved loved Janey's character!!  She was a complete bada++, even though she was sick.  Nic was well quite unexpected.  He was assertive, powerful, all consuming, dominate, and down right sexy to the core.  Do I blame Janey for falling for him?  Hec no!!  I think I was a little in love with him myself at the end of the story.  So book one is the meeting and hooking up of these two.  My my my...I just can't say enough about Nic..especially on the picnic!!

Book 2 is more about getting to know the personal details of the people.  You learn about Janey's past and you learn about Duvall itself.  Its very building and the story is an interesting one, I just prefered the raw nature of the first one myself, even though I'm usually the detail hog!!

Both were great books in their own way.  This is another series that I couldn't put down.  After the first chapter, you'll see why!!

Destiny's Favor: Orlosian Warriors Bk.2. by the lovely Dariel Raye

Orlosian Warriors Banner Twitter

Destiny's Favor cover via Cora Blu

Destiny’s Favor (Orlosian Warriors Bk. 2)

Destiny’s Favor synopsis:   His world shifted the moment she was born. Now, nothing can stop him from making her his. Imagine meeting a man who looks like an angel, wings and all? What would you do if this man told you he existed with only one purpose – to claim you and only you? Destiny Carter is a feisty, take charge, Rubinesque beauty with a tough façade, who finds herself in that age old quandary, “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” A string of lackluster relationships leave her hopeless and ready to settle…Until she meets Japheth, the man her fiancé claims is his best friend! Japheth’s arrival is heralded by an attack on Destiny’s life, and instinctively, she knows this is just the beginning. Born more than 200 years ago, Japheth looks like an angel but he’s far from it. In his world, the ratio of men to women is 500 to 1, and although he’s a superior being, he’s willing to break the most sacred law of his brothers, even drink human blood, to have one meant for him alone. When he meets Destiny, he knows she’s the one he’s been searching for. To claim her, he will have to betray a friend, risk his life, and hardest of all, humble himself enough to win her love.

Only $0.99 for a limited time


Caught in a Kiss:    As soon as they left the room, Destiny removed her hand from his and reached for her book. She gave him that suspicious look again, pursing her lips before she spoke. Sitting in a chair directly across from the sofa, she narrowed her eyes and openly asked, “What is it about you that sets me on edge?” Japheth lifted one corner of his mouth. Charming. This little female continued to challenge him. “You tell me. Can you sense that we are connected?” He crossed his arms, taking special notice of the quickening of her heartbeat and imagined her luscious chocolate nipples tightening to taut buds just waiting for his tongue. He braced himself for the lie, her sweet scent of arousal even stronger now. “You and me? No. I’ve never met you before.” And there it was, right on cue. She placed the book on the table beside her and stood, her expression daring him to come closer. “I don’t think Robert would like…” The air shifted with her movement, and Japheth closed his eyes briefly, basking in her scent. Just one taste. He opened them, moving toward her. “Robert. You’re not going to say anything to Robert. If I decided to take you for myself right now with Robert in the next room, he would be the least of my problems. Whether or not we’ve met before has nothing to do with our connection.” Destiny glared at him and took a step back. “If you decided to take me?” She pointed her index finger at him as she continued. “You listen to me, you arrogant bastard, you don’t decide to do anything…” J narrowed his eyes and took another step toward her, closing the distance she’d tried to put between them until he was mere inches away. His conscience, long quieted into silence, balked at the idea of entrancing her and taking her so far from Robert she would forget he existed. There was something about her that made her willingness to be with him more important than his desire for her. Her wants and needs took precedence over his own. He shook his head, silencing his conscience again. Destiny stumbled forward, an apparent moment of dizziness, placing the index finger of her right hand at her forehead and the palm of her left hand on his shoulder to steady herself. She blinked several times, her dark lashes appearing to move in slow motion, and looked into his eyes as if seeing him for the first time. J wasn’t sure what was happening. He hadn’t done anything to entrance her. He had wanted to, but he was certain he had restrained himself, yet she tilted her head up and kissed him. A mere brush of her velvety-soft lips sent a spark of possession through his entire body. He gripped her upper arms, dragging her body against him, and deepened the kiss. Seekers. He couldn’t shake the feeling that they were getting closer this time – that his contact with Destiny would make him and her easier for them to locate. His feelings were always right. He loosened his grip, allowing her to step back. The fact that she had already been attacked at least twice meant his enemies had found her. Although she had not described her attackers, J knew that the same evil creatures he had decimated at the bus station had attacked Destiny before his arrival. He had quickly wiped Destiny’s memory of the attack as well as Robert’s, but to his surprise, guilt twisted inside him. He did not like wiping her memory or altering her in any way. Her connection to him placed her in danger, and he wanted her to fully understand whatever decision she made. She stared into his eyes. “Oh, I, um, that’s not what I, I mean, I didn’t…” Destiny’s gaze shifted slightly, and she took in a sharp breath. J frowned, clenching his jaw before turning to face Robert. Dammit. His heart plummeted when he saw her reaction. He had sensed the moment Robert awoke, but Destiny commanded every bit of his consciousness. She was all he could think about, and he needed her away from Robert. He also didn’t want her hurt in any way. He felt her pain and confusion, the new sensation throwing him off balance for a moment. He had always known he had the ability to feel another’s emotions, but until now, he had never allowed anyone to get close enough.

Day 9 of the 13 Days with S.A. Price: Bargain by Starlight

Its Tuesday!!  Thank goodness Monday is over and we can start looking forward to the weekend.  I'm super excited because this makes the one week mark until I leave mark for Savannah!  I can't wait for AAD!  It is a bit bittersweet considering this will be the last one.  Hopefully our amazing con director will just come up with something better!!  Today we are going to be talking about Bargain by Starlight.  I enjoy all of S.A Price's series, but I must caution you on this particular one.  Its dark and involves many of the not so happy parts of real life....let's take a look:

  When Prince Dimitri, premiere pimp of Russia falls for a beautiful prostitute, he has no idea how special she really is. Still, hes determined to make her his companion, and save her from the hell she's created for herself.

Please Note: This is a prequel story to the Eververse series. It is the Origins of the character Snow, Heroine of the Second Eververse book, Silk and Steel. 

Warning: Drug use and delicate themes in this story. Discretion advised. 

This story is definitely not for everyone, but I dug it.  I mean you basically have your ever day story of what happens when children are neglected and not shown a different way of life.  Its kind of like a street girl Cinderella story, with a demon prince.  He truly does give her a second chance at life, but that is literally the only thing he does give her.  His best friend continues to make her life out her own personal nightmare because he feels shes not worthy of him.  Only time will tell.  But in essence, it makes a very fascinating beginning!!!

Day 8 of the 13 Days with S.A. Price: Entwined by Fate (weresnakes)

Happy Monday my naughty biters!!!  Its the start to a new week and a continuation of our jaunt with S.A. Price!  Today we are back to the weresnake series which I happen to love!  This book is about Merrick and our lovey Knossos nest Archon Elise.  They have quite a past together and it turns out that while the past held much pain, the future is all about the pleasures to be soon as they can find the missing people in their nests.  Let's take a look at Entwined by Fate:

Thirty females of the Ophidian race have gone missing. Believed to be dead by every Archon in the states, Merrick leads a quiet and unassuming life, saving those of his race that are lost and need it most. It’s a solitary existence, one that he hates every day. He yearns for his mate, the woman he left over a decade before, and the woman who thinks him dead to this day. When Elise Rizdon gets the official invitation to the Archon meeting in Ohio, she never expected to see the love of her life at the woman’s side, a man she was told was dead and buried. She lost him once upon a time, and she never fully recovered. Focusing on the issues, and not the man that has always made her body burn is not going to be easy. A disturbing event is on the horizon, one that threatens all Ophidian’s and their way of life. In order to survive they will have to work together, give up old grudges and take chances on the things that matter most. Love, life and the continuation of their race.

I absolutely think that this particular shifter is sexy...especially if you think about the actual animals  Elise has been called into meeting with a new Archon that no one has ever heard of.  Expecting to be more trivial land battles, she was shocked to come face to face with the love of her life....who has supposedly been dead for years.

Merrick had been laying low and faked his own death in order protect those that were dear to him.  But in this process he lost the love of his life.  Now is the perfect opportunity to unveil himself, but will his deceit kill the last remaining love within his mate?

This was a fascinating story filled with little mini stories of mates finding each other, not to mention a lot of HOOOOT sex!  Elise is a very caring and generous leader.  She deserves her happily ever after...but has to much time passed?  Can she forgive him?  Read and see!  I love this series so far!!  Can't wait until the next book!!
