American lass seeks brawny Scot...

As if being newly single isn’t brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield's friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up. When Sloane insists she's waiting for a certain sexy fictional Highlander to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland to find her a new boyfriend. She’d rather have a root canal. But if she can find a Highland hunk to “break her heart” before her friends arrive…

In a remote Highland village, Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the family pub afloat. Everything is falling apart, he’s running out of money, and now there's an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad. But then Sloane asks Galen to be her pretend Highland boyfriend...and offers him enough money to save the pub. It’s only for a few days, he figures. What's the worst that could happen?

New Release: Exit Strategy (EXIT Inc #1) by Lena Diaz


Exit Strategy
EXIT Inc. # 1
By: Lena Diaz
Releasing June 30, 2015

Buy Links:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Kobo | Publisher


Lena Diaz launches her thrilling new series featuring the undercover vigilantes of EXIT Inc. with a skilled operative putting his life—and his heart—on the line for a woman in trouble...

When Sabrina Hightower awakens to the sound of an intruder, she figures he's there to rob her, murder her— or worse. She doesn't expect to be carried off by a muscle-bound stud with male-model good looks... or that he came to rescue her.

Mason Hunt became an enforcer with EXIT Inc. to eliminate the bad guys—terrorists, militia groups, all those who would do America harm. But his latest target is innocent. If EXIT could lie about sultry, strong-willed Sabrina, what darker truths might they be concealing?

Going rogue in the rugged North Carolina Mountains, Mason risks everything to keep Sabrina close, especially now that EXIT's lethal assassins are chasing them down. The heat is on... but it's nothing compared to the slow burn of seduction.


    She wasn’t sure who was more surprised. Her, because he’d managed to break into her home, again, in spite of three bodyguards. Or him, because she was naked.
    One thing was for sure, he wasn’t shy about enjoying the view. His dark gaze roamed leisurely over the upper swells of her breasts crushed against his chest, before he looked her in the eyes. The sudden pressure against her belly told her he wasn’t unaffected by her nakedness.
    Her face flamed and she tried to tell him to let her go, but her words came out muffled against his hand. His erection continued to harden against her belly, and since that’s where her hands were trapped between them, she was literally getting a handful of him.
    A flash of heat swept through her, making her lower belly clench and her toes curl against the floor. To her shame, her body was just as turned on as his, and the shiver that swept through her was just as telling as his erection.
    His mouth curved in a knowing smile.
    Damn him.
    He bent down toward her. Was he going to kiss her? She hoped so. Because this time a Kevlar vest wouldn’t save him from her bite.
    But instead of kissing her, he pressed his lips close to her ear, his warm breath tickling the fine hairs on her neck.
    “We need to talk,” he whispered, his lips brushing against her skin, raising goose bumps. “I’m going to move my hand. If you scream and alert the guards downstairs, I may be forced to kill them in self-defense. Neither of us wants that. I just want to talk to you. That’s all. Do you understand?”
    He waited, his body pressed against hers so tightly that she could feel his heartbeat against her breasts. She didn’t doubt what he’d said. If she screamed, he really would kill the men tasked with protecting her. She slowly nodded, letting him know she understood and that she wouldn’t make a sound.
    “Only whispers,” he said. “We’re going to have a calm, quiet conversation.”
    She nodded again.
    He moved back, just enough to pull his hand away from her mouth.
    She licked her dry lips.
    His erection pulsed against her hands.
    Part of her was so mortified that she wanted to crawl under the bed and hide. The other part, a part she didn’t even recognize, wanted to stroke that impressive erection through his jeans just to see how he’d react.
    “Please,” she whispered, refusing to meet his gaze, afraid he’d see the confused jumble of fear and desire roiling inside her. “Let me get dressed.”
    Surprisingly, he immediately stepped back.
    The heat in his gaze reminded her that she was still standing there, completely naked. She ran into the bathroom for a towel.

Review: Stately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse

Book coverStately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse
Purchase link: Amazon

My rating: star star star

Heat rating: Flame  Flame  Flame  Flame  Flame

Three's a magic number in this steamy love triangle set in a British stately home. Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It's only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it's the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs. Unfortunately, things don't get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what's happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, throw an ultimatum at her, she's so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal. When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, she realises that perhaps it isn't such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.

This is a very sexy story, so if you're not into sexy stories with a little bit of kink, this may not work for you. Alice was sweet, slightly awkward and likeable, and Jeremy and Ethan were delicious. I loved that all three protagonists were genuinely nice people and that they got along well as their relationship developed. The sexual relationship developed really well over the course of the story, but I would have liked to have seen more emotional depth and development of the characters, as their personal relationship developed. Overall an enjoyable and fun read, and a great diversion on a rainy afternoon.
