****Spotlight and Giveaway Author Vella Day****

Author: Vella Day
                                 Genre: Romantic erotica

Killing is wrong. The reason doesn’t matter.
When oncology nurse, Amber Delacroix, learns her reckless brother has been in a paralyzing motorcycle accident, sorrow fills her soul. He’s murdered a few days later, and now she’s utterly devastated. Adding to life’s cruelty, the cowboy cop assigned to her brother’s case brings her in for questioning.
Stone Benson, the paramedic who brought Amber’s brother into the hospital, stays by her side throughout the tragedy. He treats her with kindness and compassion—something she hasn’t experienced much in her life. Amber yearns for more than his comforting words, and they embark on a tremulous journey. Just when she feels that their relationship is at a turning point, he reveals that he likes to share his women with his good friend and roommate, Cade. That turns out to be a huge problem, because Cade is the cop who believes she’s guilty of killing her brother.
As chance would have it, another murder occurs when both Cade and Amber are in the same location. Realizing she’s not the mercy killer, Cade offers a heartfelt apology—one that includes dinner and a sharing of souls. When things heat up between them, she succumbs to his passionate ways. The big question that plagues her now is where does Stone fit in?
Stone knows exactly where Amber needs to be. Right between him and his best friend, Cade. He'll do whatever is necessary to convince her that she has finally met two men she can trust and build a life with.
Too bad the killer has other ideas. When he goes after Amber, what will the men need to do to save her in time to pursue a loving ménage relationship?

You aren’t free to love until you realize you can’t make someone love you back.
As builder Pete Banks is finishing a remodel for psychologist Zoey Donovan, she arrives home dazed, injured, and distraught. As he calms her down, she draws him in with her halting story of how Thad Dalton, a local cop and Pete’s roommate, saved her life. When Pete learns Thad was shot, he’s torn between staying with a woman in need and being there for his roommate.
Zoey never intended to blurt out to a man she’s never met how she almost died, but Pete’s understanding nature alters something inside her. Usually, she’s the one trying to figure out her clients’ needs, not the other way around. While Pete Banks is one of kind, she can’t tear her mind from Thad, the man who risked his life for her.
Detective Thad Dalton was never so scared in his life when a madman grabs Zoey in the hospital corridor and threatens to kill her if his demands aren’t met. Thad ends up taking a bullet to save her but would do it again if it means having her in his life.
When Zoey, Thad, and Pete attend Thad’s parents’ anniversary party sparks fly. She realizes she wants a more personal connection to these two men. While Thad's on board, Pete doesn’t think he’s worthy. His self-loathing forces him to retreat and casts doubt on their future together.
Zoey and Thad are justifiably both mad and hurt. It's going to take a miracle to patch this threesome back together for their happily ever after.

When two men chase her, she manages to escape, but the near attack shakes her to the core. Now more than ever, she needs to take back control of her life.

Arson investigator, Max Gruden, is called to a blaze at an abandoned warehouse only to learn a man was found clinging to life inside.

***Review and Giveaway of Crimson Reign***

                                                             Buy at Amazon


A pulse of light preceded the gift of life breathed into the coldest and darkest of souls. Bathed in the glow of celestial love and swathed in a blanket of black satin wings nestled a king among kings, a vampire born to destroy the decay threatening to eradicate the race he was destined to save.

An angelic heart torn by yearning, suffering and pain throbbed to the rhythm of the life he created; a life prophesied in the scriptures by the Creator’s own hand. A vow of servitude given in blood sealed the fate of a Seraphim's heart and tied it eternally to the creation he craves, protects…loves.

Ancient treaties are lost and reborn, rising from the ashes as the Nephilim ravage the vampire race. The deviant desire that soared in Malachi Denali's blood threatens to bring Rome to its knees when Malachi's world, his soul and his heart are brutally shattered and torn apart.

Will purity born of an angel's love be enough to calm the savage mind of Malachi Denali? Or will Laziel be doomed to a life of purgatory for loving the life he was gifted to create…

This is not a HEA, or even a HFN....Who knows what will happen to seal their fate...only time will tell. Vampires, angels, demons and wolves together with love, betrayal, sadness and yearning make up the ongoing story that is...

The Crimson Nights Saga.

                                                       Review :

When I first seen the cover of Crimson Reign I fell in love.  Crimson Reign is the story of Malachi Denali ,The Vampire, and Laziel ,The Angel. The story starts off to me on a sad note and sets up the whole story nicely.  As the story moves along you really fall in love with the characters and feel for them as you would someone you have known for years.  The whole story is nicely written and has a nice flow to it. I myself am ready to get my hands on book two in this amazing series. I can't wait to see where the authors takes these characters to next. If you love paranormal romance I would give this on a go... I give it 5 cogs

Review of Time Trap and Time Return by Micah Caida

Author: Micah Caida
Genres: Young Adult Science Fiction
**** This Book will be available for free in June at You will be able to read it on ANY device.****
Her memory is blank.
Her future's in question.
Her power is dangerous.

Waking up in an unknown world, Rayen learns only that she's seventeen and is hunted by a sentient beast. Terrified that she may never learn who she really is or find her way back to her home, she's captured in a land that is at times familiar even if the people and the structures seem alien. When local law enforcement delivers her to a private school, she's labeled as a Native American runaway, and Rayen discovers a secret with deadly repercussions. Forced into an unlikely alliance with a computer savvy street punk and a gifted oddball girl to save their world - and the future - Rayen finds the key to an identity that no person would want.
Time Trap is the first  book in The Red Moon Trilogy.  At the beginning of the story you meet Rayen who wakes up in a desert with no memory of who she is or anything about where she is from. On her journey  to find out about herself she meets Gabby and Tony. The fun thing is though the story you get to learn about Rayen as she learns about herself and the world she woke up in in this amazing SciFi adventure. Through the book you are taken from our world to another that is so different from our own some of the difference sound awesome others not so much. There are so many twist and turns that keeps Time Trap interesting and the story going that you can't wait to turn the page to see what happens next.   The thing I liked most is how the author describes everything in such detail that you can actually get a visual of what the world is like for these characters. I will be the first to admit I am not a overly huge SciFi book fan but Time Trap won me over from the first page and I can't wait to see what is in store for Rayen, Gabby and Tony in book two. I give this book 5 Cogs!


Author: Micah Caida
Genres:Young Adult Science Fiction


Rayen promised to return, Gabby must return, and Tony can't return.

Three teenage friends are connected by a shared secret that forces a decision with consequences no one expects. When Rayen arrives on the Red Moon sphere again, she finds shocking changes. Her arrival causes more upheaval and danger for the MystiK children, creating a heart wrenching challenge for Callan who must choose between duty and holding onto the one girl he can't have. But walking away is harder than he expects when a new MystiK male in the sphere is poised to take Callan's place. Under threat of attack from an unexpected enemy, Rayen and Callan must put their personal feelings aside to unite a village in chaos.

Choices backfire, trust is forfeit and alliances shift as elements of the Damian Prophecy begin to fall into place and the time of reckoning is closer than anyone expected.

Time Return is the second book in the Red Moon trilogy. What can I say about Time Return that I haven't already said about Time Trap. Time Return begins right where Time Trap ended. There is no guessing what happened to the characters in-between books. This book actually eclipses the first book to me. You again get taken on a journey as Rayen and  friends struggle to get back...To where I won't say in case you haven't read the first book yet... If you think you have things figured out by the end of Time Trap don't bet on it. This book if fill with the same amount if not more of the twist and turns and up and downs. Yes there are characters you want to beat over the head to knock some sense into them and others you just want to beat over the head. Overall I say it is a must read.. This trilogy is doing nothing but getting better and better! I can't wait to see how this trilogy is going to end!  I give this book 5 Cogs!
About the Author:
USA Today bestseller Micah Caida is the melding of two voices, two personalities and two minds - one NYT bestseller and one Award-winner - which often turns up the strangest ideas. Micah enjoys exploring how different characters react and deal with similar situations. Life is often filled with the unexpected - both good and bad. While creating the Red Moon series, Micah hit upon a very unusual "what if" that exploded into an epic story filled with teenagers who face impossible odds, but are the only ones who can save the world from itself.

Leading Her Witness Cover Reveal

Title: Leading Her Witness
Author: Cheryl Ann Smith 
Genre: New Adult Release Date: October 13, 2014
Publisher:  Tulip Romance Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours
Synopsis: Goons, deadbeats, and murder: A tenacious process server’s unconventional techniques get her into loads of trouble. So much so that her boss jokes that he keeps the coroner on speed dial just in case. Still, most of Andie Dixon’s job is pretty tame if she doesn’t count snapping dogs and homeowners squirting her with garden hoses. That changes when she serves papers on a notorious crime boss and puts her life in real jeopardy. But despite this close call, Andie will not let threats keep her from doing her job. She puts the matter behind her until a hunky U.S. Marshal tracks her down and solicits her help to find the fugitive. Again. At first Andie adamantly refuses, but eventually agrees when she’s swayed by the Marshal’s persistence and rather dreamy brown eyes. However, when crime boss Sammy Gilroy, finds out she’s back and close on his heels, he threatens to make her disappear for good this time.
A fan of romance fiction since the dark ages, author Cheryl Ann Smith loves to throw her heroines into danger, just to see what they’ll do. Her dream of publication came true in 2011 when the first in her historical romance series came out with Berkley Sensation. And just this year, she sold a new contemporary series to Tulip Romance, thus allowing her to mix her crazy sense of humor with suspenseful elements to write about process server, Andie Dixon, the kick-ass heroine Cheryl has always wanted to be.
Cheryl lives in Michigan with her family, two cats and a very hairy dog. She enjoys outdoor adventures and traveling, when she has the time, and hopes to make her first visits to Europe and Australia in the very near future.

Title: One Night Only
          Authors: Stephanie Julian, Caridad Piñeiro,                      Raven Morris, and Willow James
ONE NIGHT ONLY... An erotic romance anthology featuring four sexy and enticing novellas by Caridad Pineiro, Stephanie Julian, Raven Morris & Willow James. JUST ONE NIGHT by NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Caridad Pineiro When you only have one night, take a chance... AN INDECENT AFFAIR PART I by Stephanie Julian One night. One woman. Two men. Twice the desire. TYED by Raven Morris It's Kylie's birthday and she'll do anything to ensure her one night with Ty isn't a once-in-a-lifetime event... Anything. PUMPED by Willow James Skylar Sole's fantasy becomes reality when the object of her affection shows up with that sexy, lopsided grin and a tantalizing proposition.



JUST ONE NIGHT by NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Caridad Pineiro

“What's up, Jase?  Why did you almost drag me out of the party?” she asked and leaned against one of the thick pilings for the boardwalk.
He braced his forearm just above her head on the support and shifted until her warm breath spilled against his face.  She smelled of something flowery and of Nicole and he inhaled deeply to memorize that aroma.
With his free hand, he brushed away a windblown lock of her hair and then skimmed his fingers down her smooth cheek.  She trembled beneath his touch and he hardened as he imagined how smooth the rest of her skin would be and how she would shiver against him while they made love.
“I want you, Nickie.”
Her eyes widened in surprise and the words rushed from her.  “Hell no.  I don't believe you.”
“Believe it, Nickie.  I’ve wanted you for a long time,” he said and moved ever closer until his body was pressed to hers.
At that touch, she sucked in a shaky breath and closed her eyes.  In a husky voice she said, “Don't play with me, Jase.”
He chuckled and her eyes snapped open to meet his gaze.  “Babe, I am so not playing with you.  At least not yet,” he said and dropped his hand to trace the rounded swells of her breasts visible above the bodice of her killer dress.  It was the kind of dress that invited him to touch and to see.


“Maybe you should back off for tonight,” Adam suggested.
Tristan shook his head. “We do that, she has time to barricade herself into whatever safe hole she’s got.”
“What if she bolts anyway?”
“Then we follow.”
Adam looked at him with raised brows. “And I suppose you know where she’s going to bolt to?”
Tristan just stared back. 
Adam conceded the unspoken point with a slight shrug. “Of course you do. And you don’t think she’ll be freaked out when we show up on her doorstep?”
“She’s going to have to get used to us sometime.”
Because Tristan wasn’t about to give in and go home.
He’d been waiting too damn long for his chance with her. To show her how much he wanted her. How much pleasure he and Adam could bring her.

TYED by Raven Morris
The elevator dinged the arrival at their floor. Ty sighed and did up his shorts. “I don’t know why I’m bothering. It’s not as if there’s going to be anyone out there waiting to see. I pay good money for my privacy.”
“This is private?” she asked when the doors opened to wall of windows, floor to ceiling, with a stunning view of LA spread out before them, all the way to the ocean, not a curtain to be found. More windows filled the wall on the right, too.
“You see how high up we are?” Ty said, leading her into the space. “Only someone with a telescopic lens is going to see us and hell, no one’s safe from those anywhere.”
She walked over to the window. The Pacific ocean sparkled in the distance, one of the few days the air was smog-free enough to see it. “It’s gorgeous.”
Ty came up behind her and put his hands on either side of her on the glass, trapping her there with his body, his scent, his very presence. “So true.” 
She met his gaze in the window’s reflection. “You’re not talking about the view, are you?” 
“Not the one outside the window.”
It felt so good to feel desirable. Bill hadn’t been into flattery—or even a general, feeling it vibe. Sex between them had been stagnant from day one.
What was moving against her behind was anything but stagnant.

PUMPED by Willow James

They grabbed iced coffee from the deli and Skylar thought they’d sit down to talk.  Instead, Griffin gestured for her to follow him outside. 
“Let’s take a walk.” Griffin held the door open for her and waved goodbye to the deli employees. “The park is just up the street and it would be a good place for us to talk privately.”
“Sure.” Standing in front of the deli, Skylar glanced at him and damn if her stomach didn’t flutter when those gorgeous green eyes latched onto hers. A smile played at her lips before she sipped her coffee. Looking at him over the rim of her cup she said,  “As long as it’s not too private and there are still people within screaming distance.”
“Funny you should mention that.” Griffin brushed past her, his arm grazing her hers with the lightest of touches. Without turning around, he murmured, “Making you

Review: Eversea and Forever Jack By:Natasha Boyd


                    Title: Eversea 
             Genre: New Adult, Drama,
              and Contemporary Romance  
                             Buy at Amazon
An orphaned, small-town, southern girl, held hostage by responsibility and self-doubt.

A Hollywood A-list mega-star, on the run from his latest scandal and with everything to lose.

A chance encounter that leads to an unlikely arrangement and epic love affair that will change them both forever.

When his co-star and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her new director, A-list hottie, Jack Eversea, finds himself in sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina. Jack hopes the sultry southern heat in this tiny coastal Lowcountry town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend, but his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it. He doesn’t count on meeting Keri Ann Butler.

Keri Ann has relied on herself so long, dealing with her family’s death and the responsibilities of keeping up her family's historic mansion, that boys and certainly the meager offering of eligible boys in Butler Cove, have never figured into her equation. But fate has other plans. Suddenly face to face with the man who played the movie role of her favorite fictional character, Jack has Keri Ann yearning for everything she has previously avoided ... and Jack must decide whether this funny, sassy girl is worth changing his life for, before his mistakes catch up to him. 


Eversea is a New Adult contemporary romance. Eversea is a beautifully written story.  When the story opens we meet  Keri Ann Butler. She is just your everyday small town southern girl you can’t help but to relate to her.  Then you meet Jack Eversea! He is your average hollywood movie star. I truly don’t know where to start on this story. I loved everything about it the characters the setting.  Keri Ann is determined not to be another notch in Jacks belt which is one of my favorite things about Eversea. Keri Ann didn’t just go right into Jack’s arms.  When you first met Jack is so self centered and arrogant that  I didn’t like him, but  as the story progressed you get to see the real Jack and you fall in love right along with Keri Ann. There are some twist and turns in Eversea that I didn’t see coming and no I will not tell what they are you must buy it to find out. I would so recommend any contemporary romance  readers to pick it up. Over all I give it 5 cogs!

Title: Forever Jack

Author: Natasha Boyd
Genre: New Adult, Drama,
and Contemporary Romance  
A feisty small-town girl and the Hollywood star who broke her heart

An all-consuming love threatened by fame

One last chance at FOREVER

Keri Ann Butler's life changed on the night she met movie star, Jack Eversea. She thought she knew a Jack that was very different to the man adored by fans the world over. In the wake of his betrayal and abandonment, Keri Ann has had to pick up and move forward with the life she was supposed to live and has put off far too long.

Suddenly Jack is back, and his explanations for why he left seem more and more plausible, and his declarations more seductive. But being Jack's latest tabloid accessory isn't on Keri Ann's career agenda, no matter how much she is attracted to him. And how can she can ever trust him again?

Jack knows he let the only 'real' thing that ever happened to him slip through his fingers. And his hands have been tied to try and stop it. Until Now.

Jack is now fighting to save his relationship with Keri Ann, even as his crazy life threatens to tear them apart. Again. The question is, can he convince her she can have it all? And have him? Forever?

Forever Jack is the second book in the Eversea books.  This book picks up right where Eversea stops. Normally book two is always lacking that something that I loved in the first book but Forever Jack breaks that rule with me.  In a way I actually enjoyed  Forever Jack a bit more than I did Eversea. Kari Ann has come to find herself and Jack well he learns some things about himself also. They  both learn that things are not always what they seem to be. I actually have to say the only thing I wish was a bit different was that we would get to see a bit more of Joey. I found myself liking him a lot. Over all I would call Forever Jack a win! Over all again I give it 5 cogs!
