Hayden Patterson has a simple rule.
And he’s never broken it. Sleeping with a woman more than once simply isn’t going to happen. He’s always managed to hang onto his resolve, and so far, no woman’s ever blasted her way through. It’s one and done, with no prospect of ever having anything permanent. His childhood gave him that thinking and he has no plans to ever change.
Two women alone, and one of them is in more danger than anyone realizes.
It’s hard being a teenager. Kacey Flournoy knows that all too well. Stuck in a school district full of snobby rich kids, she doesn’t fit in on her single mom’s salary. When she’s cast as a bully, it only gets worse – especially since she’s the one being bullied. And her poor mom, Delaina, doesn’t know what to do. Since Kacey’s dad died while serving in the military, it’s all she can do to put food on the table.
When Hayden draws his first assignment through Citadel Security, he can’t believe it. No way does he want to follow a poor little rich girl around all day to guard her from a bully. It doesn’t take him long, however, to figure out that something’s terribly wrong. And when he tries to right it, he meets the one woman who just might make him break his long-standing promise. That would mean he’d have to let go of the past, but he’s sure he’s not ready and he never will be.
A novella nestled between the first and second books in the first spinoff series from the Love Under Construction series, One Broken Promise takes the hunted to the hunter, the oppressor to the oppressed, and one very scared man to a place that will bring him to his knees. If you’ve ever been bullied, you’ll feel the pain. But you’ll also taste the joy of a promise broken.
WARNING: Strong, graphic sexual situations, a heinous criminal act against both an animal and a person by a seriously sick individual, and a suicide. For readers 18+ only.

I love the Love Under Construction universe and all it’s spin-off stories including this one. I loved the emotional growth of Hayden and the chemistry that he had with Delaina, they were hot together. I also loved how much he cared for and wanted to protect Kacey. Of course the Walters clan is always there with open arms to new people and take care of their own. A great addition to the series.

ExcerptAs revenge tales go, mine was rapidly turning sour. A day earlier I’d been on track, discovering the bastard Ranulf’s name, getting a general location and finding a thrall who’d get me right into his lair. Now I was stuck with a contract, working cheap, for Apollo’s sake, and committed to a second job so demeaning that it would get me into endless arguments with even my own Guild.Also, being stuck in Caern was going to be dangerous. I would have plenty of people after me, looking for revenge, and working for the constable meant they would all know where to find me.To top it all, my thrall was prone to erupting into a foul-mouthed rant at the slightest provocation, determined to run away, and I couldn’t turn my back on her, seeing she was more than capable of taking me out.
BlurbWare Fletcher returns to find his home destroyed. Determined to avenge his family, he buys Lind, a thrall whose skills will secure his revenge. However, Ware quickly discovers that Lind is extremely difficult. Worse, she’s determined to run away - and if it’s over his dead body, that’s fine with her!
Fletcher is set in Prydain, an imaginary place that combines Anglo-Saxon England with Medieval England, the Teutonic Kingdom and the Viking Age. This story contains slavery, dubious consent and graphic violence, however, it is a love story rather than a dark romance. It is a standalone novel; no cliff-hangers.

This book was great! I loved being in the world of Prydain again! Ware and Lind are a very unlikely couple but they have a great connection and as the story progresses they both get to learn what it’s like to live in each others world. Ware is on a quest and he’s determined to do anything to achieve his goal but it’s not easy. There are so many people who are against him he has to fight hard. Lind is just living her life the way she wants to and fighting back the only way she knows how regardless of the consequences. Both of them together are a force to be reckoned with. Can’t wait to see what else comes from the Prydain world.

Life in the limelight isn't all it's cracked up to be. After years of constant touring, and a close call with an overly obsessive fan, Bristol Lachlan has reached her breaking point. Running on fumes, and fighting a wicked case of writer's block, the lead singer of Absent Without Leave has gone missing in action.
Tage Crosby has taken more than his share of hits, both on and off the ice. Hanging up his Captain's jersey, he now spends his time running the only bar in the small town of Grindstone Harbor. The last thing he expected was for a woman to come into town and rock his world, but his beautiful new neighbor has a way of leaving him tongue tied and tripping over himself every time he gets near her.
Bristol knows her time in Grindstone Harbor is only temporary. The recording studio calls and so does the stage. But, what happens when your private life is exposed by flashing lights and what you see suddenly isn't enough anymore?
Do you go after what is missing and pull it closer to you?
Warning: This is a hilarious romantic comedy that may cause you to need spare panties for several reasons. The pages are full of steam, awkward moments of hilarity, and general epic fails of the human kind. Please read with caution.

What a fantastic book to read kept me entertained the entire way through. Moo the beast dog what a great character to write he is tops. The other characters in this book are do well written in Cat Masons style that you know you are going to love each and everyone. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I was gifted this ARC for a fair and honest review.

55M years of resolve. And only one man can break it.

Fifty-five million years. In that length of time, you’d think Esther Summers could’ve found a man.
Thing is, she didn’t want to die.
But once she’s confronted with a danger that she had almost forgotten about, it will take every resource she has to keep herself from being ended. Her wits. Her powers. Her talents. Her circle of witch friends.
And one hotter-than-sin heat and air guy, Alan Hamlet. No HVAC unit on the planet could cool off the fire he lights inside her.
In all her years of survival in Earth’s dimension, Ez never factored in the desire she’d have for Alan, or the idea that any human could get that close to her. But Alan throws every switch in her sex-starved body and love-starved heart. Worse yet, every time she turns around, there he is, acting as her protector, as if that’s his job.
As if he knows.
Laid Bare, the first book in the Witch of Endor series, turns Ez’s world upside down and wrong side out. She wants Alan. But is she dying to have him?

This was a really cool first book in a new series. I loved Ez and Alan. The world that Deanndra created is so intricate and very interesting. It just makes you want to know all about the world in which Ez’s comes from. Loved the supernatural elements of the book. I want to learn more about Ez’s mates and if she’ll every find a portal back to Endor and what she would do. The cliffhanger killed me! I really wanted to know who the hell Alan is. I’ll be honest right now I don’t like him very much because he’s kind of wishy-washy. I know there is something secret about him and the ending proved it to me. I’ll just have to wait and see in future books what’s going to happen. So many more questions left unanswered.

Nineteen of today’s bestselling authors… Plus Nineteen tales of tempting teachers and seductive students… Equals One HOT anthology for an epic cause. Sexy, spicy, romantic, angsty, funny, or sweet-however you like your fantasies, these nineteen original novellas guarantee extra heat. 100% of digital sales profits will go to ProLiteracy, promoting and supporting literacy programs for all ages, genders, and cultures.

This is a fun collection of stories from some of the best authors. These stories are about teacher/student relationships. Sometimes the teacher pursues the student and sometimes it’s the student that pursues the teacher. This has something for everyone and not just traditional male teacher/female student. Some of my favorite stories were, Teach Me Sir by Julia Sykes, Schooled by a Senior by K Webster, Star Pupil by Rochelle Paige and Behind the Wall by Jane Harvey-Berrick. If you’re looking for some hot teacher/student stories than this is the book for you!

five-stars


One man, broken by bad choices, seems determined to lose himself in his job as battalion chief of the Dallas Fire & Rescue Paramedic Division—and in the beds of as many willing, nameless women as possible.

One woman, on the cusp of a milestone birthday and making her third million selling Dallas real estate, is resolute in her goals to succeed, despite all obstacles in her path and her near ten-year relationship drought.

Neither Wade Roberts nor Samantha Weaver understood what they truly wanted from their lives. And their first inauspicious meeting didn’t help. But fate has a way of interfering with life’s plans, and by the time Wade accepts the fact he can’t live without her, it could be too late.

I have had the pleasure of reading lots of Liz Crowe books and as usual she has a way of drawing you into the story. I have not read a book of hers that I have not enjoyed and this was no exception. Much to my delight there is a character in this book that we meant Love Family books. Keep writing Liz Crowe you have a way with the written word.
