About CITY UNDER SIEGE

London is a city in flames. Tensions are high and a critical situation is about to go from bad to worse. The Prime Minister wants to send a message, and the SAS will be the ones to deliver it.

Emotional detachment is my specialty. I’m ruthless and cut throat, but there is nobody better.

Sarah Tatem is an innocent. Caught up in a world in which she doesn’t belong, and trying desperately to do the right thing. My job is to keep her safe long enough to get what’s needed, and bring an end to this siege of terror.

But something has changed. I’ve learned that the only thing stronger than loyalty is love, and now she’s gone.

My name is Lieutenant Tom Harper, and I’m about to unleash hell.

Read an excerpt from CITY UNDER SIEGE

“What’s going on in that head of yours?” he asked. Standing in front of me, he consumed my space until you could barely slip a piece of paper between us.

“I know you want to make sure I won’t break and mess up the operation, but this rest was just what I needed. If it would help, I can make a statement for your superiors stating that I threatened to pull from the operation if I didn’t get some space, so you brought me here. I don’t want you getting into trouble over this. Over me….”

He used his knuckle to raise my head until I was looking deep into those big brown eyes.

“The truth is, there are a million places I could’ve taken you to feel safe, but I wanted you here. Sleeping in my bed, cooking in my kitchen, and making yourself at home. I might not get the chance again. So stop worrying so much. Some people are worth a little trouble. I’ll get a rap over the knuckles at most, and I’d take that any day of the week for the chance to have you here.”

“You mean that?” I asked softly. My whole body relaxed in relief as he said the words I’d so longed to hear. Succumbing to the intimacy of the moment, I placed my hands on his chest as he rested his on the stove behind me, trapping me in the security of his arms. The unique scent of his soap and aftershave drugged my senses like nothing else, and I closed my eyes as I tried to memorise it. There were so many consequences to what we were about to do, a price that we would both have to pay. But in that moment, I didn’t care. All I could think about, all I could feel, all I could see, was him. His nose rubbed gently along mine as his warm breath danced across my lips. My whole body ached with the need to feel his weight pressed against me, and the small groan he let slip through his lips told me he felt the same way.

“What are you doing to me?” he whispered.

“Same thing you’re doing to me,” I whispered back.

I opened my eyes long enough to see the expression of pure torture on his face before it turned to resolve. As his head dipped towards me, my breath hitched, knowing, finally, he was going to kiss me.

Reviews:

Boom!!! This book was hard hitting from the prologue and didn’t stop until the last page was turned. And then I feel it could have carried on. I feel this story had everything and more. I was consumed by Smoke. Big, bold, tattooed and brazen. Smoke takes no prisoners when he works and what you get isn’t just work in this book. Its revenge of the highest order and he will stop at nothing to take it.

Smoke is a loner, has been his whole life, never speaks of himself, never gives anything away. But when he meets Frankie, well meets is a funny way of putting it, all of that seems to change. Frankie has balls and no fear, well she does but just doesn’t show it. She is tough, resilient and refuses to give up. She has a fight in her that you could compare to Rages but just not in the blow stuff up and slit a man’s throat way. She is bold brave and fights in her own unique way.

This book is a breath of fresh air in Tm Frazier catalogue. She has gone back to her old self and how I have missed the Tm Frazier of old, she is back to the no-nonsense balls to the wall style of writing that leaves you sated and surprised to hell. The cameos in this story just make this book that bit more special for me. Old scores are settled, circumstances are discussed and forgiven. This book for me has been a long time coming.

This book is a huge recommend for me. I wasn’t ready for just how much I would love this story. I was expecting disappointment, well disappointment didn’t come and I am so glad that I read this book…… Bring on the next one……  I need Nine in my life.

Freaking Awesome Book: Monsters by Melissa Jane

Title: Monsters
Author: Melissa Jane
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date:  February 9, 2018


Theirs was a secret they’d kill to protect. 

One.

Two.

Three cracks of thunder. Three reasons to run and hide.

When the lightning illuminated the night, I saw their bloodied faces. They were no longer the boys from next door. As quick as the storm rolled over the neighborhood, a crime of passion was committed, Lucas and Mason Carter dangerously altering the course of all our lives.

Ten years later, on my twenty-sixth birthday, when detectives come digging for information on a cold case, I find myself once again unwillingly tangled in the spider’s web.

I hold information on a heinous crime. I have become the number one target. More specific, I have become Mason Carter’s obsession.

While one brother seeks to destroy me, I have to believe the love I share for the other could somehow save us all.

When running proves futile, I’m left with a choice. Reveal the deadly truth, or dare to take on the monsters lurking in the dark.


Melissa Jane is a writer of strong Alpha’s and feisty heroines. Her love for action and romance means she puts her characters through some epic adventures and compromising situations, all with a healthy dose of uncontrollable passion.

The Winter Games have begun…

I’m the life of the party. A little loud and some buzz kills might say obnoxious, but if you’re around me I guarantee you’ll have a good time.

Unless your name is Demi Harrison.

If that’s the case, you’d act like I’m the devil incarnate and go out of your way to avoid me. Which makes zero sense because at the last Olympic Games I rocked her world.

Whatever though. I need to concentrate on winning gold anyway. I was at the top of the standings coming into the games, but since arriving in Korea I’ve lost my edge.

I was never one for superstitions, but I can’t deny that there’s only one difference between my previous medal winning games, and these ones—her.

I’ve pulled off amazing feats in the past, but getting Demi to agree to sleep with me throughout the games might require divine intervention.

by Lani Lynn Vale
Genres: Romantic Suspense

Today we have the release blitz for HAIL MARY by Lani Lynn Vale. This is the next standalone installment of The Hail Raisers Series! Check it out and grab your copy today.

Title: HAIL MARY
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Series: Hail Raisers
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: February 9th
Photographer: Furiousfotog
Cover Model: Quinn Biddle

Synopsis

Mary Persephone Hail
Mary—well-wished-for child.
Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

Review

A heart wrenching but heart warming story of family, love, loss, and a little lady named Mary. Dante is a man whose whole world collapsed when his wife and children were tragically killed in a car accident two years previously.. he cut himself off from everyone until the day Mary comes into his life and teaches him how to feel again. Cobie is a lady who comes into his world like a whirlwind he wasn’t expecting, but he was there for her at her weakest and their connection grew from friend to something more which caught them both off-guard. This book will capture your heart and imagination, you will be on the edge of your seat until the very last page as this story has so many twists and turns, highly recommend another great Hail Raiser novel.

I really enjoyed this intense, edge of the seat thriller come love story. It’s an unusual book in that amongst the chaos lies, a beautiful love that branches a decade, through the hurt and pain. It still grows and can never be tainted.

This book drifts backward and forwards in time. Which is needed to get what is really happening. It gives you first hand what happened at the points in time. The Characters are great and although some appear weak, they most defintely aren’t. Gemma, Lucas and Mason all play their parts in this sad and violent tale. That shows monsters don’t always hide in the dark, they hide in plain sight.

This book is a dark and emotionally exhausting read but what a read it is. I was left gobsmacked on occasion and cheering on from the sidelines in others. This book isnt hearts and flowers. Its fists, torn innocence and a huge fight to survive. Because a promise to remain silent just isnt good enough, when you’re not playing by the rules they choose.

This book is a complete recommend from me. I love a good story that leaves you without any questions. Sometimes the truth is enough to set you free.

Just
call him a rule breaker…
Zephyr Donovan knew the sacred rule. Never

. With the demons in his past, all he wanted was a fresh
start. He wasn’t looking for trouble. But trouble tasted so damn good.
There
are reasons for the rules…
Malia Adams had a complicated life. Well, actually it was pretty simple. Survive. Stay off the streets by any
means necessary. And that was a nightly struggle. She didn’t have time to get
involved with anyone.
Especially not the one person she can’t have.
All he needs to do is stay away. All she needs to do is forget him. Too
bad that was all easier said than done.

I really enjoyed this book, it was the first book I have read by this author and what better way to start than with a forbidden romance. The story was great, flowed and kept me engaged.

The relationship between the characters was a slow build but it ended up being great. I loved Zephyr and Malia and although they both have huge issues and both need more than a little help. They are good together. I was drawn into this book and didn’t want to put it down.

I recommend this book and I feel that although everyone will have different views. We will gain something from reading this book.

REVIEW

Wow! What can I say about this heartbreakingly beautiful written story. The way this book is written is spellbinding and the emotions that came with it, was expected but I really didn’t think I would feel this way after reading it. It touched my heart so much.

To find a soulmate in life is just magical and for you to lose that is just devastating. But to find a soulmate for a second time is a fairytale come true and as much as this book made my heart sad, it made me so happy too. It just seemed that fate had Theo and Meghan together even when they were fighting against it. It seemed that the dice were cast and it was beyond their control.

Putting all the sadness to one side. You are still left with a fantastic story that you will find so hard to put down. I never wanted it to end. This book is yes, very hard to read but it contains everything you are looking for in a second chance at love romance. It’s a huge recommend. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Read an excerpt from MIDNIGHT VALENTINE:

“Hi, there, Megan, this is Coop.”

“Hi, Coop. What’s up?”

Long, awkward pause.

“Uh…I’m still standin’ outside your house.”

I walk to the windows, and there he is, out on the sidewalk near his truck.

“Are you having car problems?”

“No, I’m, uh, just waitin’ on Theo. He’s comin’ out to see you. I texted him what you said, and, uh…” Coop clears his throat. “Well, anyway, he’s on his way. I thought I’d give you a heads-up.”

The circus never stops with this guy. “That’s unfortunate, Coop, because I just got off the phone with Craig from Capstone. He’s going to handle the job.”

Coop scoffs. “Craig? That self-important S.O.B.? You like flushin’ your money down the toilet?”

“No, I don’t. Which is why I negotiated a discount.”

“Lemme guess. He probably quoted you…” He thinks for a moment, looking up at the house, then names a number which is only a few hundred dollars off from Craig’s quote, which is very irritating.

“You seem like a nice guy, Coop, but this conversation is pointless, considering your boss has no interest in working with me.”

“I never said that,” he says quickly. Our gazes meet through the window. I see how serious he is suddenly, his easy grin nowhere in sight.

“I wasn’t going to tell him you did,” I say, sensing this is somehow a matter of great importance.

When Coop blows out a breath, looking relieved, my hunch is proven right. Before I can say anything else, however, he straightens, looking down the street.

“He’s here.” He flashes me a look full of warning, then hangs up, steps out into the street, and holds up a hand.

Fascinated, I watch as a classic Mustang slowly rolls up the street, engine rumbling. It’s black, with windows tinted so dark I can’t see inside, and chrome wheels that gleam in the sun. The car stops in the middle of the street, then Coop walks over and bends down to the driver’s side window.

Several minutes pass and Coop is still standing there, talking to Theo. Or drawing pictures or whatever it is he does to communicate with Mr. Incommunicado.

“What the hell is it with this guy?” I mutter, growing more irritated by the moment.

Finally Coop straightens and the Mustang pulls up to the curb. The engine shuts off. I want to look away, but I’m rooted to the spot, staring out the front parlor window, waiting for what feels like an eternity until the driver’s door opens and Theo steps out.

Black hair.

It’s my first thought when his broad shoulders rise up over the roof of the car. I’ve only seen him in a raincoat, his head covered, but now I see he has a lot of thick, black hair, the length past the collar of his leather jacket. It’s messy. Windswept and untamed, like he only ever combs it with his fingers.

When he turns and looks toward the house, it’s like he knew exactly where I was standing. Our eyes meet with the sensation of a key fitting into a lock: a smooth, inevitable click.

A tremor runs through me, something close to fear but more primal, a pulse of restless energy that makes me want to break into a run.

I’ve never met anyone with more naked emotion in his eyes. His face is stony, but his eyes burn with a thousand unspoken things, all of which are dark.

I resist the urge to step back. We stare at each other until it becomes uncomfortable. I move first, turning to head to the front door, taking deep breaths to calm the sudden throbbing of my heart.

When I open the door, Coop and Theo are walking up the brick pathway toward the porch. Coop is in the lead, smiling nervously. “Hi, Megan!” he calls, as if he hasn’t seen me in forever.

“Hi, Coop. Long time no see.”

Coop ambles up the steps onto the porch that wraps around the front of the house, but Theo stops at the first step and looks at me, as if for permission.

“Sure, Dracula,” I say drily, unamused by this strange situation. “You’re welcome to come in. I’ll put away the garlic and crosses.”

A muscle in his jaw flexes. He doesn’t look amused, either. He steps slowly up, one big boot at a time, until he’s on the porch and I have to look up as he walks toward me with thunderclouds churning over his head. He stops a few feet away and stares down at me as Coop looks back and forth between us, visibly worried.

But I can’t pay attention to Coop anymore. Not with the boiling cauldron standing in front of me. The rumbling mountain of magma about to blow. The seething pool of silent emotions clad in a leather jacket and jeans. If I were a cop, I’d arrest this guy on the spot for disturbing the peace. All by himself, he’s a riot threatening to destroy the entire town.

On the left side of his neck, a snarl of scar tissue peeks over the collar of his shirt. His nose was broken once and not fixed well. There’s a ragged white scar above his left eyebrow that disappears into his hairline, and he walks with a barely perceptible limp, favoring his left side. And those dark, dark eyes. God, how they burn.

Whatever the accident was that he was involved in, it’s left its mark on this man, in more ways than one.
