Se7en Deadly SEALs

by Alana Albertson 
Publication Date: January 23, 2017
  Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Erotic, Romantic Suspense, Romantic Mystery



I DON’T RECOGNIZE THE DAMAGED woman in the mirror staring back at me—platinum-blond hair, blood-red lips and nails, curves laced up in the finest lingerie. I have transformed into a bombshell to exonerate my brother, United States Navy SEAL Joaquín Cruz. He’s been languishing in a jail cell for the past six months, accused of a murder he didn’t commit, his honorable career as a SEAL ruined, his spirit crushed. I’ve gone undercover as a stripper to entertain the men of SEAL Team Seven—I’ve given up my acting career, my dreams, my home—everything to free Joaquín and discover the truth. But I didn’t count on having to conceal my identity from my ex-boyfriend, Navy SEAL Grant Carrion. The man I lost my virginity to was caught up in an endless web of sins and temptations, unable to escape from his demons. As I strip down to my lingerie and dance for Grant, I know that every humiliating moment will be worth my sacrifice—if only I can give my brother back his life. And just maybe, find a way back to Grant’s heart.

Earl of Wainthorpe (Wicked Earls' Club #3) by Collette Cameron. Historical Romance, Release & ARC Review.


Add To


Could you ever love the unrepentant rake who won you in a wager?

He didn't gamble on losing his heart when he won her at the gaming tables.

Pierce, the Earl of Wainthorpe has finally thwarted his worst enemy. Except he can't revel in his victory after winning his foe's ward in a winner-takes-all wager. If Pierce refuses to assume Bianca Salisbury's guardianship, the fiery-haired beauty with a matching temper may very well find herself sold to the highest bidder.

The shameful secret she guards makes it impossible to love a rogue.

Desperate to escape her blackguard cousin, Bianca Salisbury ventures to London to find a husband or employment. Instead, she's bartered to a notorious rakehell. She either risks being compromised and accepts The Earl of Wainthorpe's protection, or flees him and her guardian. But without money and a place to go, she fears she'll face the same tragic fate as her mother.

Caution: This romance features a sexy, irredeemable scoundrel determined to thumb his nose at the haut ton, a saucy country miss unafraid to speak her mind but terrified of even a hint of scandal, a unlikely aristocratic matchmaker, a trio of busybody sisters you'll adore, and a very pregnant calico that is convinced humans are only around for her convenience.

For a page-turning Historical Romance novel brimming with Regency England's rakish dukes and rapscallion lords, buy this passionate adventure sprinkled with suspense and humor. You won't be able to put it down.
 

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


Pierce Chamberlain,  Earl of Wainthorpe has set out to destroy the man he holds responsible for his mother's death.  The time is now at the card table.  There is however a big surprise added to the pot.  Will that change his mind?. 
Bianca Salisbury is the typical poor relation dependant on the whims of a distant cousin.  Her life has had more than her share of bad luck and heartache.  This time is likely to see her ruined completely. 
Our hero is one of the "Wicked Earls" and has a reputation as a rogue, but he is actually a big softy at heart.   The card game is going to be the talk of the town. 
This book will draw you in from the start. Our character´s histories play a huge part in the people they have become. It is very emotional at times and lots of fun. 
 We have lots of secondary characters that I´m sure we will see more of in other books in the series. I look forward to reading about them.

Title: A Wild and Unremarkable Thing
Author: Jen Castleberry
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Fantasy Romance, Arthurian
Release Date: January 23, 2018 
Cayda has spent her entire life training to slay a Fire Scale. Now the time has come to leave her dragon-ravaged village behind, march into the Summer Alps, and reap the rewards of a Champion. But the road between poverty and prosperity is rife with beasts, betrayals, and baser temptations. Sensible Cayda soon discovers she’s not the only Champion with her eye on the prize, or the only one wearing a disguise. A Wild and Unremarkable Thing pits girl against dragon in a stunning blend of Greek mythology and medieval lore. Don’t miss the thrilling novella that readers are calling poetic, enchanting, and a must-read for fans of fantasy!
“A wild and remarkable journey…Polished, vivid, and extraordinary…Completely mesmerizing!”  -Chantal Gadoury, author of The Songs in Our Hearts “Poetic…The perfect balance of simplicity and eloquence…I highly recommend it to lovers of fantasy and dragons!” -Harley Is Reading “Poetic…Fairytale like…Laugh out loud!” -Laura Bookish “An enchanting read filled with dazzling descriptions and a sumptuous plot!” -January Rabbit “Must read!

The Fire Scale flies low over Ithil. Its body is the breadth of a circus tent. Its breast is striped by veins as broad as the boughs of a mighty oak. Its roar is like the howl of an angry wind. It gleams in the starlight. Its scales are ruby-red. No wonder just one of them is worth its weight in gold, and there must be thousands. They sparkle, catching the glow of lamps and torches below - flat, fluttering discs that ripple against its skin like a scarlet coat of suns. Its leathery wings beat, once, twice, like a tribal drum, like a thunderclap, and out of its yawning mouth, a blaze erupts, engulfing everything. One breath, and Ithil is black as ash. Ithil, gloating Ithil, built of white sandstone. Built by the hands and backs of scholars. One breath. Libraries and the proud, columned summer homes of wealthy merchants are set alight. Every inch of lush, green earth in the airy market square is grit and gravel in an instant. Screams rise up like a symphony, sobs and the worst swears men can muster. Just outside of the town gates, in a field not far enough away for anyone’s liking, crystal champagne glasses fall into the grass. Girls in their finest gowns faint or flee, and some are trampled underfoot. In the heart of Ithil, beneath a brightly embroidered tarp, drunks and costumed children lie dead or dying. They make groaning prayers as they bleed and burn, mouths flush with the rose-cobbled street. One, two. The Fire Scale is high above the burning town. It gapes, and smacks its lips. Embers teeter over its tongue and tip out between its wide-gapped fangs. One, two. The Fire Scale breaks through the clouds and inky phantoms swirl in its wake. Some Ithites watch its yellow talons shove aside the stars. So quick, it came, it left. A breath. A fast-ascend, and it is gone. And Ithil…Ithil is on fire.

Buried in Lies, by T.L. Smith. Romance Suspense. Release & Giveaway.

Title: Buried in Lies
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: January 23, 2018



His lips told me he knew me. 
His hands touched like old lovers. 
His eyes held secrets of a past I’d never known.
I was lost you see. 
Lost as the flowers that grew in the meadow. 
The devil told me he knew me. 
But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn’t want them to. 
The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burnt at every touch, every linger, and I let it burn all the way to my core. 
A devil made you sin. And my devil was the worst. 
But now that devil wanted my last kiss, and it wasn't one I was willing to give. 
He could take the acid and leave the burn behind.
I was keeping my heart, even if I died trying.
