Hard Play by Sheryl Nantus (Tour) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt

 

Hard Play Excerpt
 

Jessie swung at him with her right fist, a move easily blocked with his left hand. Instinctively Dylan stepped in and spun behind her, trapping Jessie against his chest. Her arms were pinned and she struggled to break free.

 

“Look,” he said in her ear, trying hard not to be aroused by her movements as she wriggled again, thrusting her hips back. “I get you want revenge. I get—”

 

He gasped as her elbow drove home into his ribs. Dylan released her with a grunt, pushing her away.

 

Jessie moved into a fighting crouch, gasping for air.

 

She was tough, he’d give her that.

 

But he wasn’t going to give in to her demands.

 

At least, not easily.

 

“You’re not in any shape to be trying this.” Dylan tried not to stare at her mouth, the flushed skin adding to his desire. “You should be in bed.”

 

He flinched inside at the double entendre.

 

Jessie raised an eyebrow and smiled. “Make me.”

 

Dylan pulled up, unsure what he’d heard.

 

Take me?

 

Make me?

 

She feinted to the side with a low laugh and he grinned, feeling the hot flash of adrenaline race through his body.

 

“Show me what you’ve got,” Jessie said. “I can take it.”

 

“We’ll see about that.” Dylan went at her with a roar, taking her to the ground with a measured fall.

 

Despite her week’s incarceration, she proved a tough opponent, sliding free of Dylan’s hands more than once as they grappled on the carpet.

 

He was surprised at her strength, her ability to hold her own. The simple twists and grips he’d started out with to test her skills had shifted to tougher, harder holds as she continued to press on.

 

He’d made a mistake, underestimated her recovery rate. She wasn’t just keeping up with him, there was a distinct possibility she was going to beat him.

 

That wasn’t acceptable.

 

He went at her, put her down on the carpet and pinned her there on her back, her right arm stretched and in danger of being hyperextended. Her gasp made him wince, knowing he was hurting her.

 

He didn’t want to. But he couldn’t let her think she was going to waltz into the line of fire with a kiss and a swish of her hips.

 

“Fuck.” The word came out through gritted teeth as she struggled to pull her arm free.

“Tap out,” Dylan said. “Just tap…”

 

She rolled and slipped away, landing a punch to his thigh in retaliation, dangerously close to his groin.

 

Jessie got up, shaking her right hand.

 

“That’s enough.” He stood up. “You’re good, but I can’t…”

 

She bent over and rushed him, knocking the air from his lungs as they fell together to the carpet.

 

“I’m more than good enough.” She glared at him. “I’m better.”

 

He didn’t hesitate now, gripping her hips and flipping her over. Dylan straddled her, pinning her hands at her sides.

 

“All right. All right. Now let’s stop this before one of us…” He swore as she wrenched her hand free and grabbed at his belt buckle, using the grip to pull him down on her and throw him off-balance.

 

He groaned, his hips instinctively thrusting toward her. The weakness had her springing free with a laugh.

 

Dylan rolled to his feet and shook his head. “You’re making this hard on yourself.”

 

She raised an eyebrow and fixed her gaze squarely at his crotch. “I think it’s the other way around.”

Ex-special forces ranger Dylan McCourt is a stone cold killer who cares only about his military brothers and doing what’s right. He’s used to giving orders and has zero patience for bullshit. Most people tremble when they look him in the eye, but not his infuriatingly sexy new rescue mission, Jessie Lyon. She just juts her chin and says she’s not leaving without clearing her father’s name, to hell with his rules. And was that a one finger salute he sees in her eyes or his imagination? Either way, he knows this is one job his training might not have prepared him for.

 

For fans of Maya Banks’ KGI series, prepare to meet the men of the Delta Force Brotherhood, a sexy new contemporary series where kicking ass and living hard is just how they roll.

Review: Skinwalker (Jane Yellowrock #1) by Faith Hunter

Skinwalker - Faith Hunter

Review featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures 

 

 

Skinwalker 

 Jane Yellowrock #1

 Urban Fantasy

First in a brand new series from the author of the Rogue Mage novels

 

Jane Yellowrock is a supernatural skinwalker--one sharing her body with the soul of a mountain lion. When the rogue-vampire hunter is hired to hunt down a particularly nasty vamp, Jane is drawn into the steamy New Orleans vampire society where she learns the ins-and-outs of the "sane" vampire culture, more about her own Cherokee heritage, and we are drawn into a rousing, fast-paced thriller.

The Jane Yellowrock series is one that has been recommended to me by many a book lover. I’ve had it on my TBR for years now and finally I’m starting this series and seeing what everyone is talking about.

 

Skinwalker is book one in the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter. It was a delightful start to the series. We get action, adventure, mystery, and a diverse bunch of supernatural creatures.

 

I enjoyed Jane and the Beast. They both are kick-ass and distinctive. I found the alternating POV’s between Jane and the Beast to be remarkable and gripping. I like that Jane’s heritage is Cherokee, she reminded me a little of Mercy Thompson from the Mercy Thompson series. I also enjoyed that her past is murky and that we only get little tidbits on her background. It wasn’t a lot, but enough to wet the appetite. I also liked that she enjoys tea’s. I find that refusing; especially in this day and age where authors have their characters drinking coffee all the time.

 

Skinwalker focused on the characters and a mystery. I enjoyed the mystery. The pace was steady and the mystery was not apparent until it was revealed. Always good to be keepet in the dark until the characters figure it out. Their was a lot of information on all the other paranormals in the world. With Jane very little, but we get a diverse bunch of supernaturals and information explaining them.

 

We also have a little attraction going on, no romance, but you can see that Jane or should I say Beast wants Jane to find a mate. Jane understands and notices an attractive guy, who wouldn’t notice a hot guy, but she doesn’t just give in to attraction. The chase is half the fun.

 

Skinwalker was a good read and I look forward to the next.

Review: Where Darkness Lives (Guardians of Eternity #8.5) by Alexandra Ivy

Where Darkness Lives - Alexandra Ivy

Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Where Darkness Lives 

 Guardians of Eternity #8.5  
 Alexandra Ivy  
 Paranormal Romance  
 Zebra  
 December 20th 2016  
 eBook  
 112  
 

 

Drama. Scandal. Secrets. 
And a whole lot of supernatural goings-on.

 

No one’s more surprised than Sophia when she’s struck by an unfamiliar maternal urge to move closer to her daughters. But there’s one obstacle to enjoying her luxurious new home near Lake Michigan: her fourth daughter, Cassandra. Revealed to be a rare prophet, Cassandra is missing. And that means the whole family is in danger. So instead of being greeted by a welcome committee, Sophia is targeted by kidnappers—and saddled with an exasperatingly sexy bodyguard…

 

Six feet of pure-blooded Were, Luc is gorgeous, ruthless, and immediately stunned by Sophia’s smoldering beauty. The man in him is on a mission to protect—while the wolf in him is on a mission to seduce, and possess. All the more reason to keep Sophia safe—assuming she doesn’t get them both killed first…

 

Goodreads

Amazon

 

 

**Read as part of The Real Werewives of Vampire County

 

This one was about Sophia, the mother to the four werewolf daughters in the series.

 

Sophia, I have never been a fan of. She is a total bitch and drop dead gorgeous. The author did try to give her a more softer side and explain why she is such a bitch.

 

Luc, is a purebred werewolf as well, drop dead sexy, and alpha to the core.

 

These two have an instant attraction and with the werewolf magic coming back and mates being found it works. They don’t give in, but fight the attraction until they both combust with some intense sexual encounters.

 

Their is also a mystery and I did not see who the bad guy was, until it happened.

Where Darkness Lives is a good read.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

First Chapter Reveal: Passion Restored by Carrie Ann Ryan

 

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the one brother who thinks he can handle it all and the one woman who could change that.

 

Owen Gallagher likes everything in its place and is organized to a fault. While his brothers have each dealt with their own personal tragedies and stresses, Owen figures he’s had it pretty easy. That is until his perfectly ordered world is rocked at its foundation and he’s forced to rely on others. Now, he must heal his body and his soul while trying to ignore his delectable and utterly off-limits neighbor.

 

Liz McKinley is stressed out, exhausted, and not in the mood for a bearded and growly man in her ER. When she patches him up to the best of his ability, she’s prepared to push him firmly from her thoughts. Of course, that would be easier if she and her best friend hadn’t bought the house next to his. Now their paths seem to cross daily, and she is finding it harder and harder to say no to the injured and angry man next door. But she’s been scarred one too many times in her life, and even though this Gallagher looks good enough to eat, she knows that sometimes, sating that craving is the worst thing she can do.

Passion Restored Ch. 1 Excerpt

 

There was just something about a woman in jeans. In fact, he had a particular pair of jeans on his mind. They were deliciously tight and molded to this woman’s body so perfectly that Owen Gallagher had to grip the edge of the bar so he didn’t fall to his knees in thanks. It wasn’t every day that a woman left him breathless by merely walking into a building. Owen swallowed hard, thanking God once again for tight jeans and the way a woman could move.

 

His younger brother, Murphy, raised an eyebrow at him before turning so he could follow Owen’s line of sight. Owen knew when Murphy had spotted her because the younger man whistled low through his teeth before he turned over his shoulder and tilted the neck of his beer.

 

“Nice,” Murphy mouthed as he turned back so he was standing side to side with Owen. This way both of them had a clear line of sight but could also talk to each other like they’d been doing before the woman in jeans showed up.

 

Owen swallowed hard, his mind going to dirty places better left untraveled. “Nice” wasn’t a good enough word to describe this particular siren in blue jeans. The woman was all curves and sex appeal, even if she hadn’t exactly dressed the part of a bar goer. In fact, when she’d stormed into the “bar just a few moments prior, Owen hadn’t missed the apprehension in her gaze before it turned to annoyance.

 

She’d scanned the space before stomping toward a group of men and a single woman in the corner. Owen hadn’t really paid attention to that group other than noticing them in passing and still wasn’t looking too hard. He only had eyes for the sexy, blonde woman in a decently loose shirt and tight jeans.

 

Even though her shirt wasn’t clingy, he could still tell that she was pretty damn stacked and would have more than enough to fill his hands. He loved when that happened. Loved putting his face between a woman’s breasts and sucking and licking until she came. He adored watching the way her tits swayed back and forth when he fucked her from behind, and how they bounced high when she rode him, her hands sliding down his thighs as she arched her back.

 

Of course, with breasts that perfect, he’d have to rise so he could lick them, suck them, and even bite down on her nipples. Then he’d cup her with both hands, rolling the tight nubs between his fingers as she continued to ride him like he was a damn pony.

 

It wasn’t just the blonde’s breasts that held his attention, however. The sway of her hips called to him, too, beckoned him closer with each step. She had a perfect set of curves and a delightfully lush ass that just begged to be fucked. He knew the curves of her butt would jiggle and shake when he fucked her, and he’d have more than enough to hold onto as he pounded into her. And those hips? Hell, those hips were the perfect handles, no matter the position the two of them took as they fucked until the sun came up.

 

His cock hardened painfully behind his zipper, and he let out a groan. Well, shit. He hadn’t fantasized like that about a woman he hadn’t even spoken to in a long while. Maybe Murphy was right, and he needed to get laid.

 

He’d turned into a damn lecher and he didn’t like it one bit.

 

Annoyed with himself, Owen sipped his club soda nice and slow so he didn’t choke on his tongue, and so he’d have something to do with his hands now that he’d let go of the damn bar.

 

The blonde woman spoke to another gorgeous, brown-haired woman, pulling her away from the men in the corner. The guys didn’t seem too pleased about that, but they didn’t crowd the women either. Owen counted that as a blessing, and before he did something stupid like drool over this unnamed blonde, he pulled his attention from her and shifted it to his brother.

 

The same brother who now stared at the two women with an equally hungry look in his eyes.

 

Well, shit.

 

“I’m not going to call dibs since we aren’t in high school and have grown beyond that, but…” Owen trailed off when Murphy chuckled.

 

“Yeah, no dibs necessary. I’m pretty sure your stare like a puppy that just found a delicious new chew toy to chomp and hump in equal measure was for the blonde.” Murphy winked. “I’ve always been partial to brunettes myself.”

 

Owen shook his head, a smile playing on his lips. “Good to know.” He took a sip of his soda. “I wasn’t that bad, was I?”

 

Murphy raised a brow and set his half-empty beer down on the bar. They had both driven here tonight and had a one-beer limit, though Owen had opted for club soda since he had a headache.

 

“You couldn’t keep your eyes off her. I’m surprised you didn’t follow her around, trying to catch her scent. Plus, your jaw dropped just a little bit, though you somehow kept in the drool. Good for you.”

 

Owen flipped Murphy off before setting his drink down next to his brother’s beer. “Shut up. I wasn’t close to drooling.” He wiped his chin just in case, and Murphy threw his head back and laughed. “See, no drool.”

 

“That’s probably not the best way to show you weren’t acting like a horny teenager. Been a while, has it?” Murphy grinned, and Owen resisted the urge to punch the other man in the shoulder.

 

“It hasn’t been that long.” Owen winced as he remembered that he hadn’t slept with anyone since Tracy, and that was over three months ago. He and Tracy slept together off and on when their schedules and relationships matched up. Recently, there hadn’t been much matching. If he were acting this hard-up for a woman he didn’t even know, maybe he needed to call Tracy and see about letting off some steam. Yet even thinking that didn’t appeal. Didn’t really sound like a good idea at all.

 

“If you have to qualify it, then it’s been too long,” Murphy explained. “Why don’t you go ask her out? Or at least talk to her. What could you lose?”

 

From the way Blondie glared at her friend, Owen was pretty sure he could lose something like a finger…or worse.

Heated Pursuit (Alpha Security) - April Hunt

 

From the reviews I've read. I feel like I'm reading a totally different book then what everyone else read. 

 

I'm not feeling Penny. She shouldn't be on this op mission. 

She was informed that their would be bugs everywhere in every room and no place would be safe to talk or drop character, yet as soon as they get to the bad guys place and in the room that was given to them, she almost blew their cover by opening  her mouth and only Rafe kissing her asap stoped that from happening. Then she realizes that she almost blew their cover. 

 

Yet, she does this same thing again later in the book. It is frustrating. 

 

I will say one thing Rafe and Penny do have some hot chemistry off the charts steamy sex and sexy moments, but I'm so frustrated with our heroine/lead Penny at the moment that I don't think I can finish this book. 

Review: Angels’ Dance (Guild Hunter #0.4) by Nalini Singh

Angels' Dance - Nalini Singh

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

 Angels' Dance 

 Guild Hunter #0.4  
 Nalini Singh  
 Urban Fantasy - Paranormal Romance  
 Berkley  
 December 31, 2012  
 eBook  
 128  
 Library  
 

 

The gentle teacher of angelic young, and the keeper of her people's histories, Jessamy is respected and admired by everyone who knows her. Yet, born unable to soar into flight, she has spent thousands of years trapped in the mountain stronghold of the Refuge, her heart encased in painful loneliness...until the arrival of Galen, warrior angel from a martial court.

 

Rough-edged and blunt, Galen is a weapons-master at home with violence, a stranger to the sweet words it takes to woo a woman--but he is also a man determined to claim Jessamy for his own, to dance with her through the skies denied her for so very long...even if their exhilarating passion proves as dangerous as the landscape of war and unrest that lies before them.

 

Angels' Dance previously appeared in the anthology, Angels' Flight.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

** Read as part of Angels’ Flight.

 

Angels’ Dance is also published as a single title.

 

If you have been reading the Guild Hunter series then you have caught glimpses of Galen and Jessamy, but in this novella, they shine.

 

I have been wanting their backstory for sometime. Galen is one of Raphael’s Seven. We get glimpses into him and what he does, but here we find out their is so much more to him. I loved Galen. He’s fierce, loyal, protective, and honorable. Jessamy is the teacher of angelic young, a library, and the keeper of angelic knowledge/archives. She’s fragile, strong willed, and has a strong heart. 

 

Reading about these two was exquisite. They matched perfectly. The sexual tension was amazing. The writing is magnificent. The scenes are so vivd bring the characters and world to life. 

 

Angels’ Dance was a beautiful crafted novella. I loved everything about this one.

Must Love Hellhounds was interesting and each novella featured a hellhound in someway. I have previously read Angel’s Judgement in Angels’ Flight and I re-read Magic Mourns. The Britlingens Go to Hell and Blind Spot where new novellas for me.

 

I like to pick up these type of books from the library. They give you a chance to try new authors and find new series to read. I enjoyed this anthology.

 

The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris – Rated: 3 Stars

 

I enjoyed this story, but I felt like I was missing something. I don’t think The Britlingens Go to Hell is part of a series and I felt like it needed to be. It was a little weird; especially since we don’t get enough backstory or world building. Their is a lot of action and no romance or sex in this novella. As for the hellhounds they play a minor role. I enjoyed them, but wish they played a bigger role and helped the little group in other ways.

 

Over all The Britlingens Go to Hell was enjoyable to read. 

 

 

Angels’ Judgement (Guild Hunter #0.5) by Nalini Singh – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Read as part of Angels’ Flight

 

This one we get Sara Haziz’s story. She is a human-born Guild Hunter who later becomes the Guild Director for America. Before she becomes the Director she is sent on a mission and tested by the Archangel’s – The Cadre. But, she’s not alone. Yummy, Deacon is at her side. He’s their to offer protection and to help Sarah on her mission.

 

It’s action-packed and gritty. I loved every moment of it. They are hunting one of their own, a Guild Hunter who may or may not have gone off the deep end. Sarah uses her mind along with her crossbow to her advantage. Deacon was amazing. He does his job well, but he can also be light and funny. The chemistry was off the charts with these two and those love scenes, steamy.

 

Angels’ Judgement was a treat. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Deacon become lovers. This novella was perfect. Their is action, danger, blood, and romance.

 

 

Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews – Rated: 5 Stars

 

** Previously read as a single title

 

I re-read Magic Mourns. I just LOVE the Kate Daniels series.

 

Magic Mourns can be read as a standalone title or part of the series. The Andrews team does a fabulous job giving you all the pertinent information about the world that you need to enjoy this novella.

 

Andrea Nash, works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid and she’s also a Beastkin, but that’s a secret only a few know about. She’s a kick-ass women who loves her guns. I love Andrea. She is such a wonderful character and a great friend to Kate Daniels.

 

Raphael is a werehyena and bouda to the hyena clan. He’s been trying for 6 months to get Andrea to give him a try.

 

We are treated to Andra’s POV. Where this novella starts Andrea is filling in for Kate who’s on medical leave. A call comes in about a big dog chasing a shapeshifter and so she goes out to investigate. What she finds is Raphael being chased by “the coolest thing ever, a twenty foot tall three headed dog.”

 

It’s was nice to see Andrea loosen up a bit. It was also nice to see Raphael not give up and wear her down. These two have such a fun flirtatious banter between them in this novella and their romance explodes once they give into their desires and decide it’s ok to give a relationship a try.

 

This story is full of action, world building, mystery, mythology, and exciting characters. The world they live in is an uncertain one and Magic comes and goes as it pleases. 

 

Magic Mourns is a fabulous read.

 

 

Blind Spot (The Guardians #5.5) by Meljean Brook – Rated: 4 Stars

 

I’ve only read one other novella in this series and have yet to try out The Guardians series.

 

Blind Spot features Maggie as she tracks Colin’s, (her employer), kidnapped niece and retrieves Blake, Colin’s nephew. I found Blake aka Geoff interesting. He’s blind, but with a special ability. Maggie is pretty kick-ass. These two ended up working together and in the process start to develop a more then working relationship.

 

The hellhound, Sir Pup, was a great addition. He doesn’t talk, but you can tell by his actions he understands whats going on and has a sense of humor. I found him to be enjoyable.

 

The world is interesting and has peeked my interesting in checking out the series. Blind Spot was an enjoyable novella.

Heated Pursuit (Alpha Security) - April Hunt

 

I was confused at the beginning. How does Penny know WHO the guys are in this Alpha Security team? She's been estranged from her brother for a very long time. So, how does she know them?

 

I was a little puzzled in the first few chapters. I didn't feel that the start and introductions to the characters and world was all that great. 

 

Not a whole lot has gone on yet in the suspense or action part. I would like more of an intro into the Alpha Security team members. They sound interesting on what little we have gotten. 

 

Penny and Rafe, well their is lust and lots of it happening. You can fell the lust oozing off the pages. 

 

I'm undecided on this read. I've read so many great reviews for Heated Pursuit, but I'm just not feeling it.

Book Depository

 

 

Loved this book full of novellas in the Guild Hunter world. Each story was a treat. Fans will love getting the fist glimpses into characters who have come to mean a lot and those who haven’t started the series get a taste of the world; before it became something altogether different.

 

 

Angels’ Pawn – 5 Stars

 

This one we get a closer look at Ashwini, Elena’s Guild Hunter colleague and Janvier. It’s a little moment in time with these two; before they get their full Novel Archangel’s Shadows.

 

In Archangel’s Shadow they mentioned this moment this assignment briefly and it made me want to find out more on the backstory of Ash and Janvier’s relationship.

 

Ash is smart, tough, and can kick ass. She also has some “talent” or a curse, depending on who looks at it. Janvier is the ban in her existence. She’s hunted him in the past, but here he stands by her side for a Guild assignment. He has a talent for making friends with anybody.

 

Angels’ Pawn focuses on the action rather then the romance. The chemistry is their and we Sigh does a wonderful job giving us a taste of, Ash and Janvier’s, budding teasing flirtatious relationship. As for the world it’s terrifying and riveting.

 

I loved Angels’ Pawn.

 

 

Angels’ Judgement – 5 Stars

 

This one we get Sara Haziz story. She is a human-born Guild Hunter who later becomes the Guild Director for America. Before she becomes the Director she is sent on a mission and tested by the Archangel’s – The Cadre. But, she’s not alone. Yummy, Deacon is at her side. He’s their to offer protection and to help Sarah on her mission.

 

It’s action-packed and gritty. I loved every moment of it. They are hunting one of their own, a Guild Hunter who may or may not have gone off the deep end. Sarah uses her mind along with her crossbow to her advantage. Deacon was a amazing. He does his job well, but he can also be light and funny. The chemistry was off the charts with these two and those love scenes, steamy.

 

Angels’ Judgement was a treat. It was wonderful to see Sarah and Deacon become lovers. This novella was perfect. Their is action, danger, blood, and romance.

 

 

Angels’ Dance – 5 Stars

 

If you have been reading the Guild Hunter series then you have caught glimpses of Galen and Jessamy, but in this novella, they shine.

 

I have been wanting their backstory for sometime. Galen is one of Raphael’s Seven. We get glimpses into him and what he does, but here we find out their is so much more to him. I loved Galen. He’s fierce, loyal, protective, and honorable. Jessamy is the teacher of angelic young, a library, and the keeper of angelic knowledge/archives. She’s fragile, strong willed, and has a strong heart.

 

Reading about these two was exquisite. They matched perfectly. The sexual tension was amazing. The writing is magnificent. The scenes are so vivd bring the characters and world to life.

 

Angels’ Dance was a beautiful crafted novella. I loved everything about this one.

 

 

Angels’ Wolf – 3.5 Stars

 

I read this in Angels of Darkness.

 

I enjoyed this short story. I liked both Nimra the Angel and Noel the Vampire. Nimra needs help and Raphael sends Noel, but he thinks he’s been cast aside; because of what happened to him. Both of them needed healing in different ways and they come to find what they need in each other.

 

Angel’s Wolf  is a sweet, sad, and enjoyable read.

Kaitlyn Savoy might’ve been raised human, but she’s fully embraced her shifter side in her role as Guardian. Protecting her species calls to her blood, but unfortunately, so does her new partner. She pretends indifference to his cutting remarks about her heritage and the inconvenient blackouts she experiences after each shift.

 

Chayton Eagle’s honorable bloodlines include an ancient father and full-blooded Sioux mother. When he joins the West Creek Guardians and meets Kaitlyn, he can’t believe fate chose her to be his mate. But it’s too late. He already swore himself to another female.

 

When the two Guardians have to partner for a mission, it brings them too close to resist their attraction. Until Chayton discovers the promise he made in the past may kill his future.

Chayton stormed to his cabin. 

 

A four hour drive. With Kaitlyn.

 

Spending the night. With Kaitlyn.

 

Roaming the woods. With Kaitlyn.

 

His heart pounded, his nostrils flared, and he huffed like a bear after a marathon. Slamming his front door open, he charged through and kicked it shut behind him.

 

Only then did he double over, hands on his knees, sagging to catch his breath.

 

Kaitlyn Savoy. 

 

The sexiest thing he’d ever laid eyes on. 

 

The shifter he was never supposed to meet. His mate.

 

And she was oblivious to it. 

 

He stomped through his cabin. Her lack of mating insight was for the best. If he had his pick of shifters, she’d be the last on the list. Besides, he was promised to another.

“That was good, right?” He propped himself on an elbow. “You know I want you. But you gotta be up for this as well. All of it. Not just once, but something real.”

 

I wanted to say yes. I wanted to tell him that we were going to live happily ever after. Whatever I was doing right now could not continue. I’d lose all the business from the guys and Becky and I would be broke. But a little fling. I could have that, right? One night where I could feel wanted, cherished, loved.

 

I looked into his eyes and whispered, “I want you.”

 

It was the only thing I could promise right now. I knew he wanted more, but I couldn’t give him that. I could only give him right now.

 

His arms went rigid. “No. Not just want, not just now. Tell me this is more than just a quick fuck for you. Tell me you want more, or I’m going to stop.” His eyes were steel as they searched mine.

Tell Me Something Tuesday: Who are your favorite romantic couples new and old?

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where we discuss a wide range of topics from books to blogging. Weigh in and join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments. If you want to do your own post, grab the question and answer it on your blog..

 

This weeks question:

 

Who are your favorite romantic couples new and old?

 

 

Kate Daniels series: Really their is no explaining this couple Kate and Curran. They just rock and how their relationship develops between the books into what it is now going into the last and final installment. Amazing. I LOVE both these two. 

 

 

Mercy Thompson series: Another no explaining this couple Mercy and Adam. Their dynamics work. I was frustrated with Adam at one point in the series, but still this couple will always work for me. 

 

 

Hidden Legacy series: Nevada & Rogan. These two aren’t a couple yet, but are on their way. Rogan has his eye set on winning Nevada over. I’m looking forward to see how these two battle it out; before they get together. Both are such strong and unique characters. 

 

 

Moonshadow: Nikolas and Sophie. They have this connection that works, even with all the head butting, and once they give in, oh boy, do the sparks fly.

  

 

Beauty and the Highland Beast: This one sticks out for me, because I don’t read Historical Romance, but just look at that cover. The cover and blurb, plus a recommendation from Herding Cats & Burning Soup had me having to give this story a try. 

 

Fia and Dair. Both have scares inside and out, he’s bold and she’s gentle, so they complement each other. They both needed someone to see them, help them heal, and see past the scars. Watching them come together was sweet and endearing.

 

 

Psy-Changeling series: Ok, so I can’t just pick one in this series. I have a few couples that are my favorites. Lucas & Sascha, the couple that started it all, Slave to Sensation. Judd & Brenna from Caressed by Ice. Hawke & Sienna from Kiss of Snow. And, Last for now is Kaleb & Sahara from Heart of Obsidian.

   

 

 

I could go own, but these couples have become my favorites. Ones that have stuck with me and continue too. I’ve reread their books and will keep rereading them. 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d love for you to share with me some of your favorite couples new or old!
