Series: Black Inferno #3
Author: K T Fisher
Hosted By: Francessca’s Romance Reviews

Fresh out of rehab and into the real world, Roxie is thrown into the deep end of despair and temptation. Whilst in rehab, as well as recovering from her demons, there’s one thing she knows for sure. That Mason is the man for her but she fucked it all up in the arms of Joe. Now she needs to fix what she broke, if only Mason would just listen to her. Instead he flaunts women in her face and ignores her every try. Unfortunately for Roxie, in anger Mason points Joe in her path, not knowing the danger he has put her in.
Thankfully, she has much needed support from her girls and it’s not long until they reveal her hidden secret. The burden of it tears Roxie apart and on top of the buried addiction to alcohol, constant blackmailing and worry from Joe, everything is revealed in a bloody mess.

Torn between the right path and the wrong, can Roxie fight her daily craving for the bottle and heal from her scars? Can she escape from the greedy hands of Joe safely and will Mason finally give Roxie a chance to beg for his forgiveness and have one last and final chance?

I see Mason is standing inside, surrounded by the guys, but what I’m not prepared for is the half-naked woman standing at the top of the stairs when I walk inside. “So I see it’s true.” I cross my arms over my chest. “Rox, this isn’t what it seems,” Mason starts, but I give him a look. “Really, Mason?” He doesn’t say anything else, and that tells me everything. I try to calm myself down, because this is hard for me to see. Fresh out of rehab, and I’m already forced to see this shit. I was counselled to accept responsibility for my own downfall, so I try my best to calm my rage. “I don’t see why you had to bring her out of all people, Mason,” Crystal scolds. “This has nothing to do with you!” The girl, Natasha, shouts down to her. “Bitch, this has everything to do with me! You’re messing with my family!” Crystal shouts back. “Chris...” Booker warns, and I don’t miss the odd look Tate gives him. I look up at Natasha, and it hurts to see how skinny she looks. I have curves, a big bust, and here’s wannabe Barbie looking down at me like she’s the shit! That just pisses me off! I’ve gone through so much bullshit lately, and I’ve worked so damn hard I don’t need Natasha looking down at me. But still, I need to reign in my anger; this all comes down to me. If I hadn’t slept with Joe, I doubt my depression would have spiralled like it did. Maybe we wouldn’t be here right now, maybe I would be at the top of those stairs looking satisfied with myself. For me to start screaming and shouting right now is something I don’t want to do. Nor should I. “You need to get your skinny ass out of here, so go jump in your little Barbie car and fuck off!” I direct up at her, and I hear laughter behind me. “Rox,” Mason warns me and I turn to glare at him. “Don’t even fucking talk to me right now! You gave me shit yesterday for what I did, and I pay for that every-fucking-day, yet here you are, sleeping with sluts like it’s no big fucking deal!” I take a step closer to Mason. “I know we’re not together anymore, but seeing this so quickly after talking to you yesterday is fucked up. I thought we could maybe sort through this, because there’re still things we need to talk about, but I guess there’s no point now.” “Come on, guys,” Tate says, ushering everyone out. I stop them, “No, stay. I’m going now anyway.”

Braelynn and Peyton are finally headed down a path without torment—until he allows someone else to come between them.

With the remnants of her broken heart scattered, Braelynn begins to piece herself back together, piece by ragged piece.

Peyton has dark secrets of his own. Secrets that leave him no choice but to walk away from the only woman he’s ever loved.

But his desire for Braelynn has him fighting between what he wants, and what he needs to do to keep her safe.

Love can only withstand so much. The connection between Braelynn and Peyton has been tested before—could this be their breaking point?


She lay naked on the white linen sheet, her golden blonde hair fanned out across her pillow. She had been my all, the one to come into my life, cause havoc, and claim my heart. She had been my everything. My greatest desire. The fuel that pumped through my veins.

The sun beamed down on her skin, glistening on her flawless fair body. Almost flawless anyway.

The marks from our recent times in the playroom were still visible, her wrists that were tucked under her chin revealing a crimson burn from her pulling on the restraints. Her plump breast scarred from the lashes of the flogger, and her upper thighs holding the same marks as her breast.

I was terrified at the pain I had caused her, but horrified that I wanted to cause more.

Braelynn had repeated over and over that she loved the marks and the pleasures they gave her. Since she had rejected my proposal, I began to feel that she was slipping away. The grasp I had over her was fading and my need for her had been replaced with rage and want. I needed to punish her for saying no, whip her flesh when I felt her slipping out of my hands. Though I was sickened once we were done, massaging the welts kissing them with my love, I reveled in her moans and her screams of pleasure made me hungry for more.

She had turned me into the monster I now was. Possessive, demanding, and hungrier for her than I had ever been. Her arousal when I slid deep inside her had me on the brink of losing myself. The way she came around me, choking my cock … it was indescribable. But when she bowed her head, her blonde hair covering her face as she submitted to me, that had my inner Dom crawling out of my body, wanting to take full reign over hers.

And I did.

For the past six weeks she’d spent every night with me, letting me have full possession of her weak body. But the nagging voice in my head kept saying that our time was limited.

“You’re doing it again,” she whispered, her voice filled with exhaustion. Her eyes peered open when she spoke.

I leaned forward, kissing the tip of her nose. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” I lied.

“Yes, you do. You’re thinking so loud I can hear it in my sleep.”


“Stop it!” Her eyes flashed open, and a sea of green and brown specks pierced me. “You aren’t hurting me.”

I shook my head, completely disagreeing with her. “Look at the bruises on your skin.” I traced my hand over her soft breast.

“I have a safe word and I have yet to use it.” She pulled the cover over her blemished flesh and turned on her side.

She hadn’t used it yet…

But would she?

Friday Freebie: Time Thief (The Anomaly #1) by Anna Hackett

Being a lover of all things romance, one of the subgenres I enjoy is the Sci-Fi romances. I don't read a lot of them since I seem to be stuck in a paranormal or contemporary phase right now, but I do love some good Sci-Fi. I think it's from all that Star Trek watching in my younger days. Shhhh... don't tell anyone I'm a geek as well as a book nerd! Here's a lovely little Sci-Fi romance to get you kickstarted into the subgenre.

One Night of SinTitle: Time Thief (The Anomaly #1)
Author: Anna Hackett
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Publish date: 2 January 2014
Length: 98 pages
Genre: Sci-Fi romance
Purchase link: Amazon

“A fabulously steamy novella. Time Thief is filled with blood-pumping adrenaline and passion.” – Kate, Goodreads review

A woman who can stop time + the ex-Navy SEAL hunting her = a sexy, fast-paced action romance

Bay North wants revenge, no, she craves revenge. Hunted for her psychic ability to steal time and forced to watch her family die, all she wants is to make the crime lord who’s taken everything from her pay. But now he's set the ultimate hunter on her trail and Bay will need all her skills just to survive the gray-eyed, hard-bodied man out to kill her.

Ex-Navy SEAL Sean Archer has nothing left but a thirst for vengeance. After his team is killed in Afghanistan by a time thief, he came home a broken man. Now he hunts any of the monsters he can find, ready to rid the world of the dangerous mutation.

But when he finally tracks Bay to Denver, he doesn’t see a monster or a mutation, he sees a tough, beautiful survivor who ignites a desire he can’t deny. During a shootout, hunter and hunted find themselves thrust into a reluctant alliance that shatters all their defenses. Can Sean convince a woman honed in revenge that they can have more than vengeance, blood and killing?

Note to readers: This fast-paced novella contains a lot of action and adventure (think gunfights, car chases and a little breaking and entering), cool superpowers (stopping time and mind control) and a steamy romance (lots and lots of sexy steam between a muscled former SEAL and a gutsy time thief). It’s a little bit paranormal romance, a touch science fiction romance with a side of romantic suspense. So if you like it fast, and fun, and sexy, this is for you!

Includes preview of Book 2 of The Anomaly Series, Mind Raider.

annaAbout the author:
I'm passionate about action romance. I love stories that combine the thrill of falling in love with the excitement of action, danger and adventure. I write about people overcoming unbeatable odds and achieving seemingly impossible goals. I like to believe it's possible for all of us to do the same.

My parents are to blame for my insatiable need to mix action and romance. When I was young, I raided my mother's romances and my father's action adventure thrillers. I love being exhilarated and left just a little breathless. I love car chases, explosions and spaceships...and of course when the boy wins the girl. Oh, and I'm a sucker for that moment when the team is walking in slow motion, shoulder-to-shoulder heading off into battle. After reading, watching or writing an awesome action romance story, I'm left energized and feeling like anything is possible. I aim to give the same to my readers.

I love hearing from fellow action romance lovers!

New Release: Carolina Hurricane (Drive Me Wild #1) by Gwendolyn Grace


Book Title: Carolina Hurricane
Series: Drive Me Wild #1- Love in the Fast Lane novella series
By: Gwendolyn Grace
Release date: Feb 26th
Purchase link: Amazon


I was standing in the middle of nowhere with no real destination in mind. There was only the dire need to disappear from Charleston. With my head tilted up to the gray sky and my eyes closed, I let the light droplets of rain fall onto my face. I’d reached a crossroads in my life and was trying to find a reason to keep going. I had no idea a hurricane was coming and fate would choose that moment for our paths to cross.

“Hey! You okay?” A voice called out to me in a deep southern drawl, pulling me out of my fog. “Can I give you a ride somewhere?” I opened my eyes and found a pair of intense blue eyes staring back at me. His name was Fox. He had an irresistibly sexy grin, and judging by his fast car, a need for speed. His timing couldn't have been more perfect. I was looking to start a little trouble, since it was what I did best and he seemed like a good target. After sharing an incredible night together, I quickly learned that Fox was more than he appeared and full of delicious surprises. He gifted my body with unbelievable pleasures and unlocked emotions that I’d wanted to keep hidden. When I pushed him away, he left claiming a piece of my soul.

I never imagined that getting into his car that day would start a transformation within me and forever change the course of my life. Fox challenged every rule I’d ever made by tearing down the carefully constructed barriers around my heart. I never intended to fall in love with him but how could I resist a man who was so different than I’d expected and more than I ever deserved? The grayness in my life caused by loss and betrayal was waging a storm within me; Fox was the anchor I needed to stop the inner turmoil and bring me back into the light.

**Carolina Hurricane is the first book in the Drive Me Wild- Love in Fast Lane Novellas series**

New Release: Between Rubies & Opals by Sonja L Myburgh

I would like you to join me in welcoming Sonja L Myburgh to the blog today to promote her new release, Between Rubies & Opals. This book has been a long time in coming between the time I started beta reading it, getting published and Sonja finally having the time to promote the book. I remember really enjoying the story when I beta read it and I promise you that I would not promote a book I beta read just because I beta read it. If it was awful, it would not be on the blog. I haven't read the final version yet but Sonja has been kind enough to send me to copy so I just might have to fit it into the rotation but I recall enjoying the original draft. I am curious to see what changes have been made to the first draft that I read.

Here's Sonja and Between Rubies & Opals ...

CoverBetween Rubies & Opals
Sonja L Myburgh

Genre: Paranormal Romance / New Adult

Publisher: Amazon Digital Services

Date of Publication: 23 October 2014


Number of pages: 374

Book Description:

Since the dawn of time, there has been a violent race feud between the vampires and the werewolves, and many lives were lost through the centuries. Until this day, the feud continues…

For five centuries,Vampire-governor Marcus Wasilewski rules Algharakh with a marble fist, as he classifies the vamps as the superior race, which severely oppresses the wolf race. Racism is eminent and the wolves demand justice, as Senator Frank Morton, leader of the political party W.O.L.F, brings Algharakh on the precipice of a political shift.

In the midst of all the chaos, a forbidden love blooms between Sam, a werewolf, and Erin, a vampire. The two lovers, even threatened by attacks from their opposing races, do the unthinkable, and the illegal, not knowing the significant impact their decisions will have on the people around them, and on themselves.

Will their unique love withstand the cruel prejudice and put an end to the race feud that pumps through the residents of Algharakh’s veins, or will they be ripped apart by the very thing that brought them together?

"Even in the midst of tragedy, a silver lining managed to crawl out behind the darkness…"

Available at   Amazon 


     Erin plugged her headphones into her ears and started humming along to an old school rock ballad as she folded her clean clothes. Even though this was the first time that she did her laundry by herself, she knew exactly what she was doing, as she memorized every single online tutorial on how to properly fold clothes.

    A strange feeling crept up her spine and she got the distinct feeling that she was being watched. It could be her paranoia, which was already in overdrive. If her mother knew where she was, she’d be so incredibly dead. Well, figuratively speaking, of course. She stopped suddenly, staring at the half-folded shirt in front of her and slowly turned her head to the side. There was a guy, who looked about her age, standing a few feet away from her, shoving his light gray jacket onto a dryer, with an amused smile on his face. The gray shirt he had on made his shoulders look extra broad and Erin felt another strange, yet powerful pull towards this guy. He was tall, had light brown hair and was ruggedly handsome, everything that Erin liked in a guy, but with her recent catastrophe on the dating front, she was not sure what exactly she liked anymore.

    Her ex, Lukas was still a sore subject, and even when Anthony mentioned him briefly yesterday, she was feeling troubled.


    Even though Anthony apologized for bringing up Lukas’ name and the whole blasted situation, that had caused Erin unbearable agony for almost half a century, it still hurt. Hearing his name brought back so many vivid memories. Memories she would much rather forget. Memories that made her skin crawl and broke her stillborn heart all over again. Although Erin tried her best to shrug it off, it pained her more than she thought it would.

    That was the trouble with being the way she was. All her emotions were intensified. When she’s happy, she’s ecstatic, the world was hers for the taking, but when she’s sad, depressed and empty, her whole world crashed down around her, and she would feel less pain if her head was ripped off her body by an angry wolf. She often wondered why she experienced her emotions so intensely, and sometimes felt jealous of her brother, being able to feel nothing at all. Maybe that would have been better altogether.

    She gathered her train of thought, before it went flying off a cliff and realized that she was openly and shamelessly staring at this guy. Embarrassed, and slightly ashamed, she dropped her head and continued to fold the shirt in front of her.

    Then, as a saving grace, her favorite part of the chorus blared through her headphones and for a brief moment, she forgot about everyone around her and belted out the chorus to herself. She glanced over at the guy again, but this time he was looking straight at her, with a crooked smile on his sexy face. He was hot – bottom line - and she felt herself blush as she removed her headphones from her ears.

    Cringing inwardly, she knew she had done it again. “Oh god, I was singing really loud, wasn’t I?”

    “Just a little,” the guy said to her, his words rolling off his tongue like melted chocolate.

    Erin let out a long, slow breath and it felt like everything was moving in slow motion. “I’m sorry, it’s a habit.”

    “You like old school rock?” he asked her and walked up to her.

    “A little too much. It’s my favorite era.”

    “You didn’t strike me as a rocker girl.”

    “Oh really? So the leather jacket wasn’t a giveaway?” She pointed to her leather jacket that was draped over the backrest of her seat and raised an eyebrow at him.

    “Not really, you look more like a hippy girl to me,” he said with a smile as he touched her dark side braid.

    “It keeps my hair out of my face, especially on days like today. The rain makes it go extra fuzzy.”

    “I know the feeling,” he nodded with a sexy smile.

    “Besides, nobody remembers anything from the hippy era, they were all high.” Erin pulled a face and suddenly looked around her. “Which reminds me, where’s Lex?”

    “The tall, blonde girl?” he asked.

    “Uh huh,” Erin cringed, knowing that he obviously noticed Alex first. It was always like that.

    “She’s over there, chatting up my friend.” He motioned to the door and Erin saw Alex talking suggestively to a guy, who looked vaguely familiar. He had pitch black curly hair, but couldn’t really make out his face. Turning her attention back to the guy in front of her, she noticed his hair was straight and not as dark. His eyes were something she had never seen in her almost-300 years in this world. They were the brightest blue she had ever seen, with slivers of silver that sparkled like diamonds every time he looked at her.

    Erin took a deep breath, and composed herself, or at least tried to. She hadn’t fallen down yet, so that was a good thing.

    “Right, of course she is. I can’t take her anywhere,” Erin sighed. “I should really consider getting her a leash.”

    “Good idea.”

    “Well, at least now I get to see the guy she’s sleeping with tonight, which is definitely a first.”

    “I highly doubt she’s his type.”

    “Why is that?”

    “He’s not really a blonde girl type of guy. Much like myself, we prefer brunettes. Even redheads.”

    “Your subtlety is almost commendable,” Erin grinned at him and he let out a laugh.

    A deep, throaty laugh, that made her knees feel weak.

    “Thank you. I’m Sam, by the way.” He held out his hand to her.

    “Erin. It’s nice to meet you, Sam.” Erin placed her hand in his and looked at him, feeling the slow motion movement return. His eyes swirled around like the dark depths of the ocean, and she had to fight with herself to look away. Luckily, Sam let go of her hand, making everything go back to normal speed. She let out another slow breath and watched as he crossed his arms.

    “I’ve never seen you here before,” he pointed out.

    “That’s because this is my first time. Here.”

    “Your first time? To a Laundromat?”

    “As a matter of fact, yes.”

    “Why is that?”

    “I have no idea. It was always done for us.”

    “Rich daddy?”

    “You could say that.”

    “And I’m guessing, by the way you look around all the time, they don’t know you’re here, right?”

    “Not at all. My mother would kill me if she knew where I was,” Erin chuckled nervously.

    “Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.” Sam knocked his knuckles against the door of the dryer.

    “So why are you here then? I don’t see any clothes…” Erin raised an eyebrow at him.

    “You do realize that it’s raining outside?”

    “Yes.” Erin nodded and looked outside at the rain falling down. “But it’s just rain, you know.”

    “I don’t like getting wet.”

    Erin let out an amused giggle and looked at him. “And you’re only drying your jacket?”

    “If you want me to strip down, just ask,” Sam said to her with a crooked smile that almost made her skin melt off her body.

    “I’ll remember that.”

Can Dylan win the most important fight of all—the one for her heart and their future? Or will he retreat back into the one-dimensional existence of working and fighting?

Book Four: Finding Resolution

Release Date: February 28th 

Finally, Dr. Jasmine Carter (Jazz) was getting her shot at taking the lead on one of the Centre’s highly covert operations. Great, wonderful, a dream come true even—you’d think. Well, that was until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broody—Quade Roston, her fellow Centre co-worker—was assigned to be her partner.

For the last twelve months, these two had been at war. In fact, they’d elevated trading verbal barbs to the level of an international sport. For all the antagonism, the chemistry between them was just as strong. They both knew it—their teammates knew it. But what the hell were they going to do about it?

Simple—Jazz issues a challenge to Quade that she thinks he’ll never accept nor live up to.

Then their seemingly straightforward assignment to investigate a few cases of a mystery illness suddenly morphs into something much more deadly. Jazz finds herself the unknowing target in the middle of a bikie war. Now she’s dealing with threats from all corners. But maybe, just maybe, the biggest threat will be to her heart.

In a dystopian future, fertile women are so hard to come by that they are now bought and sold for huge sums of money across the world. You could say that women are the new currency.

However, she had no idea she would end up being sold to two young and handsome bachelors named Blake and Steven. They are both dragon shifters and they are intent on mating with her and producing a baby as soon as possible.

With not enough fertile women to go around the brothers have no choice but to share the curvy beauty among themselves. Something that allows Kira to fulfill her every sexual fantasy....

Review: Windburn (Nightwing #2) by Juliette Cross

Windburn (Nightwing, #2)Windburn by JulietteCross
Purchase link: Amazon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Heat rating: Flame  Flame  Flame

No man can win her heart—until now…

In the Gladium Province, the boundaries between humans and Morgons, the dragon-hybrid race, continue to blur as a new generation surrenders to long-forbidden temptation…

Sorcha Linden does whatever she wants whenever she wants, and no one can stop her. Least of all a man. After all, they’re good for only one thing—warming her bed. But then she meets Lorian Nightwing, brother of Lucius. Seductive and iron-willed, he is determined to melt her emotional defenses—and warm her rebellious heart.

The beast within Lorian longs to cage Sorcha and mark her as his own. Forever. Yet the man within also longs to protect her. When a stalker starts leaving Sorcha suggestive gifts with cryptic messages bearing an ancient blood cult symbol, Lorian’s dragon side takes over. With her life at stake, Sorcha can no longer deny the love they share. But when evil tracks her into the night, will she be too late to claim it?

While I was reading this book, I was thinking, how do I write this review? I love the world that Juliette has created and I love her Morgon men, but this heroine, Sorcha ... I really did not like her in the beginning.

I found Sorcha to be brash, loud and I didn't like her attitude. I didn't like that she didn't think before she spoke, that she had a smart mouth and that she used sex as a weapon to keep people at bay. It cheapened her as a woman and made her come across as slutty. As the book progressed, I grew to see that underneath all the bravado was a scared little girl who was afraid to love and trust, and she was using all that swaggering to cover up a wounded heart. It helped me to understand her and it helped me to dislike her less but it still didn't excuse or wash away her behavior in the previous book and the beginning of this one for me.

Now Lorian ... I loved. I was expecting him to be much darker and broodier from his introduction in Soulfire and his past, but he was just a strong, dominating alpha male who knew what he wanted and went after it. He understood Sorcha and her past better than she probably did herself and forgave her for it. I enjoyed seeing her pursuit of her and how he progressively broke down those walls so that at a point when Sorcha thought she was in danger, he was the first one she called. A definite change in her attitude from thinking of him as just another one night stand to someone she could count on and trust.

The mystery of who was stalking Sorcha was a good one too. Finding out who was actually the stalker really surprised me and it was a great twist to the story.
I'm really enjoying these Morgon men that Juliette has created and I'm glad that I didn't have to wait too long between Soulfire and this one. I'm looking forward to Nightbloom when it comes out in September ... September seems so far away ...

One last thought, Juliette Cross packs a punch in 100+ pages.

To close, here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the book:

Juliette Cross“When he was rough, my body soared. When he was gentle, he slayed me.” 
 Juliette Cross, Windburn

“I let myself feel everything. Just this once, I wanted it all. I let him push our passion to the cliff, let my body synchronize to his in perfect harmony. Just this once, I let more than my body fall over the edge. With him.” 
 Juliette Cross, Windburn

“... But I won't be your prey. There's only one hunter here." His grin sent a shiver down my spine. "I want something more from you, Sorcha Linden. More than your body.”

 Juliette Cross, Windburn
