  Synopsis-Banner-2

Misha, a successful banker, wonders why he doesn’t feel elated. His wife Sayuri has told him to leave home for a month to get his obsession with sex out of his system. Misha takes his guilt-free pass and heads to Mexico City.

There he meets a young woman unlike any other, in the most unlikely of places. She combines innocent idealism with a seemingly insatiable appetite for sex. His lust and heart pull him back to Mexico again and again, where he finds himself increasingly drawn to his young lover.

But as Misha’s month of freedom approaches its end, will he be able to tear himself away from the arms of this woman with whom he is falling in love? And is everything he believes about Sayuri actually true?

Then another woman enters Misha’s life — one who demands complete honesty. Or else.

Warning … This book contains numerous explicit situations (To quote a reader: “I thought my tablet would burst into flames.”) It is intended for adults only.

Meet-the-Author-Banner-2

My name’s Austin Briggs. I’ve spent over 10 years researching the history of the Aztec Empire and the Spanish Conquest with a dream of creating a historical fiction series that would fascinate readers who like a good history-based tale. I even went so far as to experience some of the magical rites of the ancient Mexica myself.

I’ve always been obsessed with learning about other cultures; in addition to my time in the lands that were once occupied by the Aztec peoples, I’ve also lived in Russia, Japan, England, Switzerland, Cambodia, Lithuania, and Uzbekistan.

I’ve been a soldier in the Russian army, an officer in the United Nations, and a global manager of a Fortune 10 company. I’ve been both a local and an outsider, a member of the majority and of a minority, which I feel makes me somewhat able to write from the perspective of multiple characters, all of whom have various levels of status and acceptance in their world.

We’re often told that history is written by the winners. My stories are told from the perspective of those who lost — though they went down fighting.

My fascination with the Aztec Empire during the time of the Spanish Conquest began because I’m intrigued by the idea of a society that is about to lose itself entirely. I wanted to show how difficult and painful — and sometimes strangely inspiring — that process can be.

Synopsis-Banner-2

A man who always sees beneath the surface.

Logan has lived his dream of being an artist for hundreds of years. He’s painted some of the most beautiful women in the world, but none of them compare to Meghan Campbell. When they are paired up to go after the next jewel, resisting her becomes almost impossible, but he knows he must. The witch is hiding something and until he knows what that is, he cannot fully trust her.

A woman who can lure any man.

As a witch with siren abilities, Meg has never had a problem with the opposite sex. That is, until she met Logan. The irritating man seems to be the one person in the world who doesn’t succumb to her spell. Unfortunately, he is the one man she really wants. No matter how hard she tries, he resists her.

As they embark on their quest for the next jewel, tempers flare and passion ignites. But when a new layer of the curse is revealed, they discover their failure could put lives in danger. The two must work together to fight the rising power against them and hope that those who support the Clan survive the fight.

Excerpt-Banner-2

She heard the sound of feet down the hall and knew her morning solitude was about to be broken. When Jack slid into the room laughing, she smiled in reaction until she saw his companion.

Logan.

The man brought about too many feelings to count. Dealing with him on half a cup of coffee was just not fair. And of course, he looked amazing. All that messy hair, his bedroom eyes, and the stubble he hadn’t shaved…how was a woman supposed to ignore all that beauty?

“Morning, Miss Meghan. How are you this morning?” Jack asked, drawing her attention away from Logan.

“I’m very fine indeed, Sir Jack.”

He giggled like he always did. “I am not a sir.”

She widened her eyes. “But you are the son of Angus, are you not?”

His smile grew. “I am.”

She looked up at Logan. “Good morning.”

“That’s your opinion,” he mumbled as he headed for the coffee. It was out of character for the artist. He’d always seemed to be in a good mood until the last few days.

“Did you wake Logan?” she asked Jack.

“Yes, but I needed to wake him. I had a dream,” he said sounding more like the solemn boy Maggie had told her about.

“Oh, don’t you know not to let dreams bother you.”

“Some of Jack’s dreams are premonitions,” Logan said as he placed his coffee at the head of the table. Where she liked to sit. Bugger.

“I understand. But, if they are premonitions, there is nothing we can do about it now.” Meg knew that better than anyone and had paid a steep price. She returned her attention to Jack. “So, Sir Jack, what would you like for breakfast?”

“I can get my own,” he announced.

Logan, for his part, had prowled over to the sideboard to get himself some food. As she had thought before, he hadn’t been what she would have pegged as a stereotypical artist. He had the look. But, his temperament had been one of well, a normal, every day person. Artists, and she had dealt with more than one in her day, tended to be moody and well, more trouble than they were worth. Meg didn’t like moody men. She liked them to be happy and somewhat needy because that’s how she had earned her living for so long.

Still, it was hard to ignore the way he moved, or those long, artist’s fingers as. She could just imagine what he could do with those. Lord, to feel them dance over her flesh …

Jack made a sound and he was looking at her strangely. Oh, bugger. The boy could definitely read thoughts from time to time.

“What else is on your mind this morning, Jack?” she asked as she sipped on her coffee.

He shrugged as he sat down to the table and started to eat his bacon. He chewed for a few seconds, then said, “Did you know that Logan sleeps without any clothes on?”

She choked, spewing a bit of her coffee. “Does he indeed?”

“Spilling all my secrets, Jack?” Logan asked.

“I didn’t know it was a secret. You have to tell me. Besides, Miss Meghan was thinking about …”

“Never mind about that, Jack. Get to eating,” she ordered, hoping Logan didn’t notice her blush.

From an early age, USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to now retired AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter and spends her days thankful for their new home and the short trip to Wegmans.

Carrie

USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

Book Summary (courtesy of GoodReads)

Love.
Betrayal.
Deception.
Attempted Murder.

Aurora Alexander is everything headlines are made of.

Newly divorced single mother Aurora Alexander is trying to move on with her life.
After a string of unsuccessful blind dates, she turns to internet dating.
Everyone does it, so it has to be safe. Right?

Wrong.


My Review
This book in 8 words of less …
PASSION + DANGER = MIND FUCKING BLOWN!

For the first time I am trying something new … reviewing a book while I’m reading it. Usually I wait until everything is read and completely finished before putting my thoughts to paper … well let’s see if this way is more fun and interactive with what I’m reading and what my thoughts might be. So be prepared for this review to have spoilers.

Reading along and living vicariously through Aurora as she travels along this dating journey to discover Prince Charming I can’t help but get attached to these guys. Brent is perfect with his own adorable son and just like Aurora I can see him as being my BFF … only a male version. LoL! Next we have Wesley who is sexy and confident but has a cocky disposition at times that grates my last nerve but apparently has skills that wouldn’t have me kicking him out of my bed without taking a ride first. And then there is Jackson who is so freaking sweet and romantic but is still in touch with his inner child and can have fun even if it means getting his ass kicked by a girl in mini golf and go karts. See what I mean? How could you not be attracted to these guys? They’re freakin’ … YUMMY!

Well little do I realize while I’m in my lust bubble over Jackson and continue reading Statistic … BAM creep factor is introduced. Someone nefarious is creeping in the background and I am thinking it is the quiet one Jeremy who Aurora has only talking to a few times over the dating site’s messenger service. At this point I am currently 33% into the book so let’s see what the ever awesome Dawn Robertson has in store for us next.

Holy … Shut the Front Door! I am almost 66% finished with Statistic and let me tell you … I am so freaking in love with Jackson! Not only is he romantically sweet while being protective and gentlemanly, dear sweet Jackson is a dirty talker! After this discovery all I can say is two words … OVARY EXPLOSION!

Statistic-Quote

covergasm

Alrighty enough reviewing for now I’ve got to get back to the ever delectable Jackson and see if his cock really is made of magical wonder.

Son of a biscuit eater! I’m about 75% done and I’m like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot … the person I have suspected to be the mysterious creeper aka Jeremy is actually Jackson’s little brother! Holy freakin’ shite! So wasn’t expecting that Dawn! And now I am at a fork in the road … the person I thought was the creeper might not be the creeper and yet might still be because I have only just discovered this earth shattering news and who I thought was the BFF might actually be the real creeper of this tale. The tension is sky rocketing high here folks and the shit is getting real. So I’m off … on the edge of my seat gnawing my nails down to the quick to see where Dawn is taking me now.

Okay I’m 90% through this book and I couldn’t be more confused … my mind is a complete whirlwind of thoughts that I don’t know which direction is the right one. At first I think there is just one creeper and as the pages turn my thoughts on who that person is has become clear … Mr. BFF. But as I read on I get this feeling that something isn’t right … that me, figuring out that it was Professor Plum in the library with the rope was just too easy of a mystery to solve. So now I think there is a second creeper involved. Let’s continue on and discover what the conclusion of Statistic will reveal.

Holy fuckin’ shit! I have finished Statistic and I couldn’t be more fucking shocked by the ending if I was bit in the ass with a cattle prod. As I sit here with a tear-stained face my mind is totally fuckin blown! Dawn Robertson is known for surprising twists and unexpected turns in her books that I shouldn’t be shaking my head while saying “What the fuck …” right now but damn it is just too unavoidable. I reread the epilogue numerous times because my shocked brain refused to believe what was finally revealed. I know I have dropped some spoilers but I am not revealing the surprise ending … from reading this review you know who I have been rooting for to capture Aurora’s heart but damn Dawn did you have to screw with me like that! If you want to know what the shock value was that made this book my favorite Robertson book by far you are just going to have to buy it and I apologize for the language but my vulgarity just exemplifies the shock factor that my idled brain has found itself to be in right now.

Excerpt-Banner-2

What makes a person tick? Is it the way they are raised? Perhaps it is a genetic predisposition. Our DNA coded from the moment of conception to write out the entire way our life will play out. Of course some things will be left to chance; fate better yet. But I can tell you from personal experience, some people are just born bad.

I always did my best, despite having the genetic odds stacked against me. Saying I didn’t win the parental lottery would have been one of the understatements of the century. Yet, I was always able to skate by in life. Trying not to become a statistic. Little did I know other people would take my choices away from me.

I guess most of my problems started when I got married. I was such a naïve twenty year old. I thought the world was all sunshine and roses. He was my world, my reason for living. That was until he lost interest in me. A high risk pregnancy, bed rest, sex restrictions, and a colicky baby will kill intimacy for anyone. Breastfeeding isn’t sexy. Neither are the stretch marks Liam left me with. I didn’t care, and I still don’t. But he did, and that is why I caught him in bed with my eighteen year old babysitter when my son was barely three.

I know, my life is starting to sound like a soap opera. I wish these were the darkest days. Back then, I thought they were. I thought going through a divorce with a four year old son was the end of the world. Ha. I wish I would have known what my future would hold. What damage could be done at the hands of a stranger I thought I knew.

Does anyone truly ever know another person? My answer to that question would be no. Even the most open and honest people have dark secrets. Shit they would never reveal to anyone. You know you have those type of secrets, we all do. Hell, I do. I typically would never tell anyone. Except since the world knows most of them now, it is my turn to tell my own story.

The true story of Aurora Alexander. The real dangers of picking up strange men on the internet under the guise of dating, and new beginnings. It all began as a game. A way to spread my wings, and learn the dating game after being out of it for a decade. It ended in a violent attempt on my life. I am a fighter. I have lived to tell my story. No one can silence me. Not even him.

ALH Pleasure

Is it love, or a little harmless pleasure?

Cynthia Myers meets Chris Dupree at her former fiance’s wedding. After a little dancing, and champagne, she ends up back in Chris’s hotel room. For one night of down and dirty sex. That’s it, that’s all. He lives far away, and she has other things to do … like get a life.

Chris is a switch. He likes to dominate but he also likes to play the role of a submissive from time to time. His last relationship with a sub turned nasty and since then, he has shied away from anything but straight vanilla sex. When he meets Cynthia, he finds a woman who could change his mind. His mate. The only problem is he has to convince her.

In a carefully orchestrated seduction, Chris teaches Cynthia about submission and dominance, allowing her take the reins. As he leads her through pleasures she thought she’d never experience, Cynthia’s self confidence soars and she finds herself falling in love with him. But, when he asks for submission in the bedroom, can she surrender to prove her love or was it all about a little harmless pleasure?

This book was previously published, but has been substantially revised and expanded for Samhain Publishing.


ALH Lie

Falling for her might be easy, seducing her may be damned hard, but keeping her alive might just be deadly.

Coming from nothing, Micah Ross now has more than he knows what to do with. His Hawaii BDSM club is flourishing, and he has his pick of women. Except one. Dee Sumners is cute, sexy, feisty and, since she s on his payroll, off-limits. Plus, she insists she isn’t into the life. Until one heated kiss hints that his head bartender secretly hungers to be his sub.

Life on the run doesn t allow Dee to indulge in long-term relationships. Still, Micah manages to work his way through her tough armor and under her skin. Yet even as she succumbs to his skilled seduction, her survival instinct forms a plan to leave the island she has grown to love and the man she s in danger of loving.

When Dee disappears, Micah s anger turns to fear when he realizes she didn t leave willingly. Calling on his skills as a former bounty hunter, he tracks her to the mainland only to discover she is entangled in a web of lies and deceit that not only threatens their love, but her life.Warning: This book contains more Hawaiian settings, a Native American Dom who always thinks he s right, a woman on the run, sexy kisses, murderous relatives, a trip to Sin City, and a seduction that is sweet and hot and everything in between. Ice water and a towel are recommended while reading.


ALH Ride

 

When this Dom falls hard, he will do anything to protect the woman he loves.

Elias St John has lived a life most people wouldn’t believe. An Aussie by birth, he has found his way to the Big Island working as the right hand man to Joe Kaheaku. When his boss dies and leaves the ranch to Eli and Joe’s niece Crysta Miller, Eli finds himself more than a little attracted to her.

After finding her fiancé in bed with another woman and helping her father through his illness, Crysta is ready for a new start. The offer of the ranch far away from home is perfect. The only problem she has is with Eli who constantly tells her what to do. When an argument turns into a passionate kiss, both of them get more than they were expecting.

Eli finds himself completely enthralled with Crysta as his submissive. As seemingly simple accidents turn deadly, Eli realizes that someone is bent on destroying the ranch by any means possible — even murder.

Synopsis-Banner-2

Everyone has secrets. No one has secrets like Watts.

Catherine Kolb has found the perfect diversion from her life of nearly complete seclusion: a virtually anonymous correspondence with a man she knows only as “Watts.” Intelligent, intriguing, and with an insatiable appetite for sex, his words begin to draw her out of her closely guarded world.

Watts insists on privacy. He has no choice. In the wrong hands, his secrets could get people killed.Including him. And Catherine.

But curiosity and lust prove stronger than reason and safety. A planned one-time encounter sets into motion a series of events that bring Catherine and Watts to the edge of ecstasy and the brink of peril.

Two very private people. One risky night. A shot at love and redemption.

Due to mature themes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

Excerpt-Banner-2

The situation was risky enough, and now I was dealing with the fact that she worked for what many people consider the world’s premier law enforcement agency.

I decided I needed to check her out. So as I left early Sunday morning, with Catherine still asleep in her bed, I found her purse where it always was—on the kitchen counter. I quickly rummaged through her stuff, found her wallet and got her name off of her driver’s license.

Catherine Marie Kolb.

On the drive home I made a phone call to Justin, a guy who occasionally did a little work for me.

I gave him Catherine’s name and birthdate, telling him all I needed was any information regarding her connections to the FBI or any other law enforcement or intelligence agencies. I asked him to keep it quiet.

“Don’t I always?” he asked. “You don’t need to tell me that, dude.”

“This is different. It’s personal.”

“Not for me,” he said. “My lips are sealed. Usual hundred bucks, dude.”

“You got it.” Dude.

I had been introduced to Justin by one of my associates. He was a grad student at Boston University, and apparently some kind of computer whiz who had turned down job offers from Microsoft, Apple, and various smaller tech firms right out of high school, opting instead to go to college. Smart kid. Damn brilliant, actually, and very eager to help out. For a small fee, of course.

Justin could get in and out of any computer in the world without leaving a trace. That’s what he claimed, at least. I wasn’t sure how true that was, but whenever I needed something that turned out to be deep within a highly secured computer network, Justin had been able to get it.

As I drove home, I mentally kicked my own ass for not having done due diligence before spending this much time with Catherine. She had given me no reason to suspect that she worked for a law enforcement agency. She’d given me no reason to believe she did anything other than some boring clerical job.

Just as I was entering the city of Baltimore, forty minutes later, my phone rang.

“She’s clean,” Justin said. “All she does is work in the department that scans incoming parcels. Sounds boring as shit, if you ask me.”

“No other jobs with the Bureau?”

“None. And no previous law enforcement or military activity. But there is something odd.”

I pulled up to a red light. “What’s that?”

“Catherine Marie Kolb didn’t exist until eight years ago.”

Synopsis-Banner-2

When the Darkness meets the Light … and claims it.

He’s caused havoc. He’s brought Hell to earth. He’s taken more souls than he cares to remember. When Samuel comes face to face with a woman he has 
centuries of history with, she makes him work harder than he’s ever worked on claiming a soul.

Anauel has been charged to end Samuel, once and for all. She hates who he’s become, she cannot stand his existence and she plans to do whatever it takes to bring him down. What she doesn’t count on is his 
seduction making its way into her heart.

Anauel plans to destroy him for everything he has 
become. But a big ‘what if’ lingers over her: Can she send him down the path of atonement, or will Samuel lure her over in hopes of claiming her soul?

Fighting lust and temptation, Anauel will need to fight harder than she’s ever fought before; for her soul to live. In claiming the soul of an angel, Samuel will find himself also fighting against something he’s completely unfamiliar with; the ability to feel something greater than lust and seduction … love.

My Review
This book in 8 words of less …
ENERGETIC, FLIRTATIOUS AND CHARMING = AWESOME SAUCE!

Where to begin? To say I enjoyed this story would be an understatement of epic portions because if I were to really be honest I would admit that I haven’t pulled my eyes away from kinkier reads to allow the enjoyment one would find between the pages of a charmingly sweet Contemporary New Adult Romance in quite a while.

Anywho, this book offers everything you would expect from a budding relationship … the flirty playfulness and the passion filled nights to many heartbreaking situations couples have to face sometimes.

You can’t help but fall in love with the characters from this story. Charlie and Bentley are perfect for each other. They are both well developed characters with colorful personalities. Even when their past causes some hiccups along the way you can’t resist the attachment you feel towards Charlie and Bentley. Besides if the story was all rainbows and my little ponies from beginning to end without any chaos thrown in the mix readers wouldn’t be able to relate … it would feel unrealistic in my opinion.

The one part that just drew me in and brought tears to my eyes (insider’s secret – all it takes for the water works to flow is to witness a man get so choked up with emotions that even he has tears in his eyes) was also the most heartbreaking moment of the whole book … not the fights or the fires or even the crazy stalker bitches (although they provided the necessary suspense to make Take Me Out more interesting) … it was when Charlie and Bentley go for their eleven week check up on their precious gummy bear. Talk about a hot mess … tears just kept coming. I could never imagine how one would survive after experiencing such a life change situation.

Lucky for us readers Dawn brought the love and fun back by tying in the characters love for baseball and each other with the support of their family and friends. I would really enjoy a sequel only this time a touch long and perhaps Charlie and Bentley could get another chance at being parents but this time two gummy bears … seriously how cute would that be … you know it would be to freakin adorable.

So how about it Dawn? Any chance for a second book?

PC Cover

Everyone has secrets. No one has secrets like Watts.

Catherine Kolb has found the perfect diversion from her life of nearly complete seclusion: a virtually anonymous correspondence with a man she knows only as “Watts.” Intelligent, intriguing, and with an insatiable appetite for sex, his words begin to draw her out of her closely guarded world.

Watts insists on privacy. He has no choice. In the wrong hands, his secrets could get people killed. Including him. And Catherine.

But curiosity and lust prove stronger than reason and safety. A planned one-time encounter sets into motion a series of events that bring Catherine and Watts to the edge of ecstasy and the brink of peril.

Two very private people. One risky night. A shot at love and redemption.

Due to mature themes, this book is recommended for readers 18+.

Excerpt …

I knew him only as “Watts.” Since we had an entirely email-based relationship, he said he preferred to keep it anonymous.

Once, when I asked if Watts was his first or last name, he wouldn’t say, and told me he would prefer that I didn’t force the issue. I promised him I wouldn’t ask again, not knowing at the time that I would break that promise and the consequence would be so harsh.

This was part of his “privacy code.” Actually, it was the most innocent part of his code, which I would eventually find out. For six months our contact was exclusively in the form of the written word. It was safe, which was what I wanted.

It was also stimulating in a number of ways, which was something I didn’t even know I needed until Watts entered my life.

His words alone—those seemingly simple black and white letters on a screen, strung together to form ideas—awakened in me something that I had no idea even existed: an aspect of my being that at times I thought was better left unexplored.
