Summary:
Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.

Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever . . .

MY REVIEW:

I loved this short story of a gothic romance in a haunted Inn. It was fun, had that great gothic vibe that I love and was very romantic. For such a short story it had a lot, the characters grew on you, the world building was fascinating and I feel like I want more of Blackbird Inn. It would make a wonderful setting for a series.

Blog Tour: HIS TO DEFEND by Rhenna Morgan

HisToDefend

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for His to Defend, by author Rhenna Morgan! I’m so excited to share book #1 of the sexy NOLA Knights series, and its gorgeous cover!

Read on for more details and an exclusive excerpt!

His to Defend cover

His to Defend (NOLA Knights #1)

Publication Date: October 14th, 2019

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Carina Press

Length: 384 Pages

Book one of NOLA Knights, the heart-stoppingly sexy spin-off series by Men of Haven author Rhenna Morgan

His world. His rules. Her love.

Though his methods may be rough, when it comes to protecting what’s his, Russian vor Sergei Petrovyh’s heart is always in the right place. That’s never been more true than when the gorgeous Evette Labadie asks him for a job. He knows enough to keep his hands off someone as beloved by the locals as Evie, but there’s something about her that calls to him—no matter how badly he burns to make her his.

Don’t think Evie hasn’t noticed the powerful Russian mafia boss who makes her favorite diner a regular stop. How can she not? He’s as hot as his reputation is dangerous. But everyone in her struggling New Orleans neighborhood knows he’s the man to turn to. And right now she needs money to get her son out of trouble.

Her other needs—needs she knows damn well Sergei can more than satisfy—will have to wait.

Evie soon finds herself playing Cinderella to a man who, despite what people believe, is definitely more prince than villain. She can’t help falling deeper in love with each passing day. But when a turf war between Sergei and a rival brings violence to her doorstep, Evie must come to grips with loving a man who will do anything to defend her…or walk away from her best chance at a happily-ever-after of her very own.

Excerpt

Evette pinched the business-size check from her former employer a little tighter and glared at the cleaning company’s logo in the top corner. On any other Friday, the money would have meant inching closer to some semblance of security for her and her son, Emerson. A step toward unraveling the mess she’d created for her life. Today, the unexpected termination that had come with her weekly pay felt more like a sucker punch to the gut. Yet another obstacle to overcome after too many damned years running the gauntlet and never even glimpsing the finish line.

Maybe she could get a job cleaning at one of the hotels. God knew the French Quarter was packed with them, and she was pretty sure she could count on regular shift work, like the office cleaning crew she’d been on. Though, how she was going to land one by Monday when it was already close to 4:30 on a Friday afternoon was beyond her. And landing something quick was the only way this latest setback wouldn’t force her into dipping into Emerson’s school fund. Plus, there was the hurdle of what would happen if they called her old company for references and found out she’d been fired for a security breach.

Not. Good.

The commuter bus swung onto Tulane headed toward Mid-City, and Evie’s spirits sunk a little lower. If someone had told her when she was growing up that she’d be a single mom living in one of New Orleans’s rougher parts of town at twenty-eight years old, she’d have laughed in their face. She was going to be a fashion retail buyer—or at least have some kind of career in fashion. She was going to travel the world. See things. Know people. Adventure her way through life and suck it dry.

Then her mom had died, and she’d gone off the rails.

She sighed and slunk a little farther down onto the hard plastic bench, the run-down stores, bars and restaurants along the roadside passing in a blur while the vibrations from the bus’s engine rattled clear to her bones.

Get knocked down seven times, stand up eight.

If she had a dollar for all the times her momma had said it and all the times Evie had echoed it in the last eight years, she’d be driving a Porsche toward the Garden District right now instead of a barely livable apartment.

But her momma had made it.

Mostly.

Raised Evette through her tumultuous preteen years after her daddy’s death and made it look easy. It hadn’t been until a year after Emerson had been born and Evie had found the courage to read some of her mother’s journals that she’d realized just how much of a challenge her mother had really faced. How much she’d given up and how alone she’d felt through every second.

Evie understood it now. Knew to her very marrow the sacrifices that had been made on her behalf.

And she’d thrown it all away nursing her grief.

Resolve and a whole lot of stubbornness revved her energy and forced her taller in her seat. Pity was what had gotten her into this mess to begin with, and she’d be damned if she went that route again. Labadie women didn’t quit. Didn’t give up. They faced whatever they needed to face, and they smiled doing it. Eventually, she was going to find a way to give her and Emerson the world. She just might have to scrimp a little longer and get more creative to make it happen.

Review:

I FREAKIN LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I sucked this one down in 24 hours! I just couldn’t put it down!!!

This is a Mafia Romance with some twist and turns and suspense thrown in. The love story between Evette and Sergei was so, so captivating!! The passion and intensity of their connection just pulled you in and left you sighing!

The way Sergei was so protective of Evette and her son, Emerson, was intense. No one hurts his family. Here he is a Russian Mafia Boss (or pakhan, in Russian) and Evette knows he’s dangerous, but she goes to work for him anyway. He’s drawn to her from the beginning and tells his men that they are his family and should be protected at all costs. Evette begins to see glimpses of the man behind the mask.

“Yes, he was a predator. A wolf barely contained by the human confines of flesh. But she sensed something else beneath as well. A lost soul. Once aching like everyone else.”

I loved so much about this book. I fell completely in love with Sergei & Evette. I also came to really love young Emerson and some of Sergei’s men, especially his two captains Roman and Kir! I loved how it took place in New Orleans and the descriptions of the place were fascinating. Plus I learned some Russian words, not that I’ll remember them, but that was cool!!

I am really impressed with the way Rhenna Morgan writes!! I will be checking out more of her work!!!

Review: Scarlet Huntress by LeAnn Mason

Title: Scarlet Huntress
Series: Tales of Grimm Hollow Series
Author: LeAnn Mason
Publication Date: October 29, 2019

6699BA32-6BDF-4292-97DA-B615D0AF7DC9

Summary:

The woods have always housed my nightmares.

It’s where my grandmother was torn apart by wolves. Where, for years, I was held captive by evil shape-shifting witches. I thought it was for my Shaman abilities. I was wrong.

But their ritual failed. Instead of dying, I survived, while another’s blood stained the forest floor.

In my escape, I discovered Grimm Hollow—a place deep in the forest in which I hoped to hide. The secret town teems with magic and a Shifter who wants to help me hone my skills. But the big, bad witchy-wolf is hot on my scarlet tail, and he won’t hesitate to destroy everyone and everything to get me back—or kill me.

Hiding is no longer an option. Instead, I must become the hunter.

Bring on the big, bad wolf.

*Grimm Hollow books are loosely based on the Grimm Fairy Tales in a modern paranormal setting.*

My Review:
Scarlet goes from a victim to a strong, determined huntress. Watching her grow, along with her feelings for Hunter/Jason was fascinating and swoon inducing.

Grimm Hollow is such an interesting place with so many fascinating characters!! I am looking forward to more stories taking place there!!

LeAnn does an extraordinary, breathtaking job with world building and writing her characters. She describes enough to stir your imagination, but not so much to take that away. Her writing is phenomenal. This is definitely a favorite overall and for 2019!! I look forward to the next book in Grimm Hollow!!!

My Review:
Visions, dreams of future events, four good friends, romance, suspense and twist/turns of a thriller. What a ride!!!

Garcia’s writing is incredible!! You are grabbed right from the first page and taken for a thrill of a rollercoaster ride!! The characters are endearing, frustrating and some are plain evil. Hannah and Rory start off as best friends, crushing on each other. As the story progresses they grow up and begin to realize their feelings are becoming more than a crush. I loved watching their relationship blossom. But also the group of four friends become more like family to each other. So much happens, but they stick together and look out for each other. The paranormal/suspense/thriller aspect of it has you on the edge of your seat at times, turning the pages to find out what is going to happen!!

Don’t miss this thrilling, suspenseful, paranormal, romantic, coming of age story!! It is a wonderful genre bender!!

Excerpt

Abby

A chorus of agreement rings out around the room as everyone, unanimously, confirms their support.

Adrenaline courses through my veins, and I just know this is it.

The pivotal moment where everything changes.

Where the power shifts and the people in this room are primed to take back control.

I cast a glance over everyone again, and powerful emotion swims up my throat. Before, the guys were fond of tossing out sentiments that they would kill for me or take a bullet for me, and I was skeptical. Especially when everyone in this room has betrayed me in some way.

But that’s in the past.

Because I look at them now, and I know it’s the truth.

I know they are in this with me.

That they want this as badly as me, and they will do whatever it takes to help me reclaim control over my life.

It’s a surreal feeling.

To know I have such a formidable group of guys standing behind me, watching my back, and supporting my decisions. The feeling of empowerment is incredible. Indescribable. And exactly what I need to get me through the weeks and months ahead. It’s not going to be easy, especially the part I have designated to play. But I know I’m up for the challenge with my crew at my side.

We will make it happen.

This time, the bastard is going down.

And there will be no getting back up.
