Put A Ring On It – Book 3

By Maria Luis

Release Day – Sept 26

They call her America’s Sweetheart.

And me? I’m the so-called “inked god” she dumped on TV. 

I’ve tried to forget her. I’ve tried to move on.

Until I discover that her family is opening a new restaurant next to my tattoo parlor. 

If I were a gentleman, I’d offer my congratulations and go my own way.

If I were a gentleman, I’d let her be . . . but I’m not.

Savannah Rose may claim I’m nothing more than a friend, but that slight hitch in her breath whenever I get too close says that America’s sweetheart is nothing but a liar.

All it takes is one scorching kiss, and I vow in her ear: “You’re going to beg, Savannah. Beg me to touch you, beg me to give you more, and if you’re real good, maybe I’ll do it all over again before you have to beg for that too.”

I’m no gentleman.

But Savannah Rose? She’s no one’s sweetheart but mine.

​When she’s not writing about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet, Maria is a historian who specializes in medieval England and 19th century New Orleans. What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime–Maria’s favorite topics. ​

Maria lives in New Orleans with her better half, where she can generally be found hiking with her two dogs, Zeus and Athena, kayaking in Louisiana’s inter-coastal waterways, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

RELEASE REVIEW: Truly Yours by Kennedy Fox

Truly Yours, the anticipated conclusion of Mason & Sophie’s story is here from Kennedy Fox! 

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever. I just didn’t realize how much.

As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could.

Bad timing strikes again.

When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted–him.

My Review

I have to admit…I went into Truly Yours with more than a little bit of trepidation. I knew with the issues of timing and conflicting emotions as well as the mental and physical scars that were fighting to control one or the other that a happily ever after for Mason and Sophie would be one hell of a battle, and as much as I would like to say that I always held out hope that these two would find the right time…would find a way past the pain and anguish…would fully heal in order to give themselves completely over to one another, there were times that I didn’t think it would happen…times where I felt like they were trying to get over an insurmountable amount of darkness, but that’s more a testament to Kennedy Fox allowing readers into the heads and hearts of their hero and heroine…because as much as Mason was Sophie’s light, she had to take the proper steps to get to the point where he could offer her himself and she could reciprocate.

It’s essential in an angsty read like Truly Yours that readers are allowed to gain a clear perspective from both main characters, which is exactly what Kennedy Fox gives us in the second part of Mason and Sophie’s duet. These two characters have had to endure so much, both individually, as friends, and as something more, but life and circumstances beyond their control have always left them a bit too far apart, forcing them to think and act and heal quickly, which just can’t happen in the situation that they find themselves in and the chaos that has them spiraling.

Healing may not be easy, especially given the circumstances that Sophie finds herself in, but it’s not impossible and the fact that she has a man like Mason to help her cope, to make sure she doesn’t go somewhere that she can’t recover from. His strength, his protective nature, his determination are aid in these two finding their way back to each other, despite the time spent apart and the immense storms they’ve had to weather. Mason is most definitely someone I want in my corner when I’m fighting to take my life back that was destroyed by bad choices and low self-esteem. But as much as it would seem that Mason could pull anyone through their hellacious experiences, Sophie had to do a large part of the healing, the coping, and the ‘reprogramming’ for lack of a better word that would allow her to come out of these devastating battles, strong enough and cleansed enough to fully give herself to the man who has always, always been hers.

Amidst the tragedy, the guilt, the pain, and the grief, light still exists, and while it remained overshadowed by darkness for quite some time, as soon as Sophie took back control, even if it was only a small amount at a time, it was still a step in the right direction and with Mason by her side, they walked that journey together, through the highs and lows, the overwhelming emotions, and the battle scars, and in the end, Sophie saved herself and her reward was a man who has only ever treated her as the amazing person she was always meant to be.

4.5 Poison Apples

Book 1 – Truly Mine

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.

As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint.

Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.


It’s all we can ever be.

After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches.

And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

My Review

Anytime Lexi Blake takes readers back to Bliss, Colorado, in her Nights in Bliss, Colorado series, it’s a given that there is going to be a heavy dose of quirky characters, beyond steamy and erotic scenes, a salacious amount of sexual tension, and a litany of suspenseful, dramatic, and hilarious moments along with characters who need to deal with their pasts in order to have the futures that they want.

Since I’m a huge fan of this series, I’ve seen Logan Green as a supporting character in a litany of scenes in previous books, so the fact that he was finally having his story told had me anxious to head back to Bliss and witness Logan find a way to work through his past while still remaining in his hometown, and hopefully, find a way to be back where he belongs with his best friend by his side and one dynamic lady between them, sharing in everything they want to give her and giving unconditional love in return.

It’s clear, from the start, that Georgia Dawson affects both Logan and Seth Stark, which is perfect, considering that these two men grew up together, know everything about one another, and share a bond that won’t break regardless of the time passed or the fact that Logan’s been in a bad place for quite some time. I enjoyed the separate times that Georgia had with both men, but what I most wanted to see was just how much time it would take for Logan and Seth to get back their friendship and revel in the fact that they can make things right this time.

Because these characters have been a part of the series for quite awhile, readers can verify just how much they’ve grown up, how much they’ve changed from the people they were into better versions of themselves and despite the fact that there are still significant hurdles to jump over for these three, I never lost hope that they would find a way because not only did they deserve their happily ever afters, but the fact that they never stopped fighting to reach their dreams, even when it seemed hopeless is exactly why they would get everything they wanted and more.

It’s always difficult to say goodbye to characters who have been a part of your life since the start of the series and because the people of Bliss, Colorado, are one of a kind, it’s even a bit harder to leave them, but I know that anytime I want to visit this small town haven for people down on their luck, looking for a second chance, I only have to head back to Bliss through one of the stories and I’ll be reminded all over again, just how special the town and its inhabitants are.

Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.

Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.

It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.

Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.

But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.

All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.

Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.

By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.

My Review

Make Me, Lani Lynn Vale’s newest release in her KPD Motorcycle Patrol #4) series, is an apt name for Royal St. James and Justice Rector, primarily because I can totally see both of them up in people’s faces, saying that exact phrase, provoking and taunting in a way that may get them in trouble but more than likely will have others backing away before things come to blows.   

Each heroine who Lani Lynn Vale creates is an independent, quirky, intelligent, and snarky woman, but there’s just something even more authentic about Royal St. James than any of Vale’s other female leads; she’s aptly given a unique name to go with her unique self and the more insight readers receive about this kickass, take no prisoners’ alpha female, the more I want her to keep fighting the fight, proving herself worthy of every single aspect of life, especially love in its truest form.

Justice Rector absolutely comes off as a hardass, which he absolutely needs for his job, but there’s more to him than his brash exterior, and with Royal, regardless of how infuriated he gets with her and her antics – those that seem to put her and him in difficult situations – the tension between them is palpable and it’s only a matter of time despite forces working against them that they found their rightful place next to one another.

Like most of Vale’s story lines, things move rather quickly in terms of the main conflict; both the hero and heroine place themselves in rather precarious positions – one, because she can’t not protect those she loves, and the other, because he sure as heck isn’t going to allow the fiery redhead he can’t stop thinking about get into anymore trouble than she’s already been in – even if that means blowing his cover and potentially his case.

Of course, there isn’t a Lani Lynn Vale story out there that doesn’t include an array of supporting characters who add another layer to the story line, not to mention the suspense and intrigue that the story itself displays. And all of that together culminates into one satisfying ending, at least for the good guys.

All the Forbidden Things by Lesley Jones is LIVE on Apple, Nook, and Kobo and will be exclusive to Amazon on September 12th! 


When all that you want, is all that’s forbidden…

I’ve known him my entire life.

Before marriage.

Before fatherhood.

Before betrayal.

Now, he’s one of rock’s bad-boys trying to be good.

Trying to be the best father he can for his daughter.

He’s my brother’s best friend.

He’s my boss.

He has a wife.

Max isn’t mine to have, but I want him all the same.

And I haven’t survived all that I have to not go after what I want.

Her story is a tragedy, mine’s a publicity disaster.

Just when I needed her most, she walked back into my life, and the timing couldn’t be worse.

With a newborn baby, a divorce, an album to record, and a world tour to plan, I don’t need the distraction.

She’s off limits.

She’s my best friend’s little sister.

She’s my nanny.

Billie’s a golden drop of sexy sun on a grey autumn day, tempting me into the light and a life full of possibilities.

A life not meant for us.

Add to your Goodreads TBR:





It’s at that point I notice Billie climbing from the car. Although, if Mel hadn’t told me, I’d never have recognised the girl standing on my drive as Billie Wild.

She closes the car door and turns towards me.


She stares down at her feet as she moves slowly along my driveway. When she reaches the front of the car, she looks up. The bluest of blue eyes meet mine, and she stops moving.

Deafening silence.

No birds singing.

No traffic sounds.

The silence is so loud it hurts my ears.

What. The. Actual. Fuck?

She takes a step towards me, and my hearing returns. The gravel crunches beneath her green biker boots, a pigeon coos, brakes screech, engines rev . . . a bomb could fucking drop, but nothing, not a single thing can divert my attention from Billie Wild as she moves towards me.


About the Author

Lesley was born and raised in a small working-class town in Essex, just outside of East London. She’s married with three sons and in 2006 they all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about fifty kilometres outside of Melbourne, Australia.

Lesley is currently ‘a stay at home mum’, but in the past, she has worked at ‘good old Mark & Spencer’ for thirteen years and as a teacher’s assistant.As well as writing, Lesley loves to read and has been known to get through four or five books a week, when she’s not writing that is.

Her other interests are watching her boys play football… the round ball version. She’s happy to admit to being an addict of social media and owes a lot to her Facebook and Twitter family in promoting her book. Lesley is also rather partial to a glass or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being her favourite.

Being a born and raised Essex girl, she will happily admit being a big fan of spray tans, manis, pedis, and is regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although she doesn’t own a pair of white stilettos.

RELEASE BLITZ: You Can Have Manhattan by P. Dangelico

YCHM - RB banner.jpg

You are cordially invited to the worst wedding of the century.

You Can Have Manhattan, an all new standalone contemporary romance by P. Dangelico is LIVE!

Cover You can Have Manhattan.jpg


I’m no stranger to hard work. It’s the one constant in my life. And with no family or friends to speak of, it’s been easy to pour all my time and everything I’ve got into my career as general counsel for Blackstone Holdings.

And, hey, I’m not complaining. I mean, life is good…sort of…mostly. It was perfectly fine until my boss offered me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. One I’d be crazy to pass up. All I have to do in return is marry his good-for-nothing son. I can do this. I can handle it…I think.

* * *


I’ve had my fair share of fun. Some would even say I used to be somewhat of a party whore. Pardon, party animal. I haven’t been that guy in a long time, though. Not since I moved to Wyoming, bought a failing cattle ranch, and turned it into a profitable business.

Life isn’t just good––life is great. Until a phone call from my father threatens the quiet, simple life I’ve built. Marry or lose everything. And to a woman who can’t stand me, no less. Well, I’m not going down without a fight. I’m never going back to Manhattan. Not if I can help it.

About P. Dangelico

Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.
