synopsis

Darkly sexy, emotional and forbidden, a woman unwittingly falls in love with the son of her abductor. The conclusion of a two-book contemporary romance series by New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy.

Lies hurt. Lies destroy. I tried my best to understand why Ethan kept his secrets but it was so hard. Until I realized that I couldn’t deny myself any longer — I needed to be with him. We needed each other. Despite my family’s wariness, the media’s fascination with us, the fact that his father still has a stranglehold on our lives, we belong together. No matter what. I will never let Ethan go. But sometimes love destroys us too, and we’re too weak to banish the demons. Especially when our demons are determined to ruin us…

Jennifer Reviews: What the Clocks Know by Rumer Haven

NEW RELEASE!
Released March 18, 2016
Paranormal Women’s Fiction
~ * ~

Summary:
Twenty-six-year-old Margot sets out on a journey of self-discovery – she dumps her New York boyfriend, quits her Chicago job, and crashes at her friend’s flat in London.

Rather than find herself, though, she only feels more lost. An unsettling energy affects her from the moment she enters the old Victorian residence, and she spirals into depression. Frightened and questioning her perceptions, she gradually suspects her dark emotions belong to Charlotte instead.

Who is Charlotte? The name on a local gravestone could relate to Margot’s dreams and the grey woman weeping at the window.

Finding a ghost isn’t what she had in mind when she went ‘soul searching’, but somehow Margot’s future may depend on Charlotte’s past.

Woven between 21st century and Victorian London, What the Clocks Know is a haunting story of love and identity.

Illustrated Temptations: The Revenger by Debra Anastasia

WOW. And yet again, Debra Anastasia WOWed me. First of all, happy release week to this wickedly wonderful lady! The Revenger is live and up for grabs! I just gotta warn you tho… this book is no dark romance! It’s a trap! Not sure what genre it should fall into, but it’s kind of a mind-fucking twisting-beautifully-sick-badass-fantasy-unsettling in a good way-kind of read! I really don’t know what I’m talking about. Like, I have no words or correct phrase to describe it. Whew! I devoured it in a day. I couldn’t wait until I got to know all the details, and so I had a one night stand with this book! I FLOVEd it!!! And the ending is awesome for me, others might wish for a different one but they are no Debra Anastasia. So yeah! Amazing job Deb! 😉

Illustrated Temptations: Saving Evangeline by Nancee Cain

I admit, I’m not a huge fan of the paranormal genre…but I do have a few of my faves on the list.  I’m so glad to be able to add one more author for keeps. I recently had the opportunity to read Saving Evangeline by Nancee Cain. It was her debut novel and I must say, AWESOME JOB! She’s now on my radar for a must watch author.

So as I was saying…the author slayed it with a beautiful writing flow, an amazing story line, and characters to fall in love with.  I loved the journey of these two souls who are both lost and trying to find themselves. They learn the meaning of life together; they learn how to live it; and they both learn how to love. Remiel and Evangeline are two special characters that will make you cry, smile, laugh and hope.

There is no questioning my love for Author Katy Evans, and it only grows bigger over the years that I’ve known her.  Yesterday, the final installment of the REAL series was released for everyone to read and enjoy.  I’ve told her so many times that Legend is an epic ending for the series. I remember how eager and curious I was way back when when I found out about Maverick. I trusted that Katy would deliver an interesting, consuming and captivating story. She never disappoints. I must say, I adore Maverick just as much as I love Riptide. 🙂

It is that amazing!

The Shadow is the second book from Sylvain Reynard‘s Florentine Series. Congratulations and happy release week SR! I don’t know where to start because I don’t have enough words to say how brilliant SR’s writing is. It is not a secret how much I love this author. I am utterly in love with his writing.

The Shadow is by far my favorite from the series. There’s suspense, politics and mystery but the passionate love and stunning romance is not lost in the story. It is truly a classy one. SR has the ability to make certain words feel like more than just words. It is captivating and you can feel it deep within your heart and soul.

I thought no one could really ever top Alex Waters in Pucked, but then again, you can never tell with this awesome author! I did love Miller in Pucked Up. But dood, RANDY BALLISTIC is the man!!!!

It’s really an amazing story.  And I hope… I hope there’s more.
