At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... 

The wrong man never felt so right...

Ex-fighter Reed Miller has been secretly lusting over his best friend’s girl for months, but he refuses to jeopardize a friendship over a woman—especially one who doesn’t like him all that much. Now that Darcy’s on the market again, it’s even more imperative to stick to his strict hands-off policy. But the sizzling attraction between them is too powerful to ignore, and once he’s had a taste of her…all bets are off.

Darcy Grant is tired of walking the straight and narrow path. She’s on the hunt for passion, and there’s no denying Reed is just the man to give it to her. Although she has no interest in dating a bad boy, and certainly not her ex’s best friend, it’s impossible not to melt beneath Reed’s skillful touch. Now it’s just a matter of setting a few ground rules—and hoping her rule-breaking, sweet-talking bad boy agrees to follow them. But if she lets Reed into her bed, does she stand a chance of keeping him out of her heart?


Thoughts:

One Night of Scandal is a sinfully sexy frienemies to lovers story that you won't want to miss!

Sean Connery, kilt wearing Scotsman, James Bond. Like that? Then you will love what our guest today has recently released. Welcome Victoria Roberts!


VR: Thank you so much for having me today, Lexi. I love chatting with readers.

Lexi: It seems not that long ago you came out with your debut novel, a sweeping romance with an irresistible Scottish Highlander. And you kept going! Thankfully, because you just released My Highland Spy, book one in the Highland Spy series and it has everything we have come to expect from your writing. Strong alpha highlanders, equally strong heroines, and the fun predicaments they find themselves in. So tell us, what was your inspiration for My Highland Spy? *crossing fingers hoping for Sean Connery*

VR: *laughs* I can tell you men in kilts are always an inspiration. I’m so glad you loved the Bad Boys of the Highlands series. I’ll let you in on a little secret. There may be a few more Bad Boys in your future.

A Secret Match by Kelli A. Wilkins (Guest Post)

Creating a Rough Road to a HEA
By Romance Author Kelli A. Wilkins


Hi everyone,

My name is Kelli Wilkins and I’m a romance writer who loves torturing my characters. Why? So I can get them back together for a happily-ever-after ending!

Let’s face it, romance readers know they are going to get a HEA before they pick up a book. The hero or heroine isn’t going to die—unless you’re reading a paranormal and someone turns into a vampire.

People read romances for different reasons: for great storylines, to live vicariously through the characters they care about, and to know that whatever obstacles these lovers face, they’ll overcome them together.

#BookReview: Brushing Off the Boss by Annie Seaton - 2.5 Wine Glasses

Rating: 2.5/5

The one passion they had in common was the one that would keep them apart.

Artist Sienna Sacchi is about to have everything she’s ever dreamed of, when sexy playboy Jack Montgomery comes strolling back into her life as the owner of her gallery. Her plan to buy it herself ruined, she refuses to let him interfere with the most important thing—her debut exhibition. But Jack’s not just taking over her workplace, he’s also intruding on her art studio, her home, and maybe even her heart.

Jack Montgomery has few rules for his carefree life, but never mixing business with pleasure is one he is determined to keep. He’d planned on finally satisfying the tension between him and Sienna, but discovering he’s her boss puts an immediate end to that. Unfortunately, being forced to share a tiny apartment with the gorgeous, tempting sculptor is pushing Jack to his limits. One brush with desire could ruin everything they’ve worked for.


Thoughts:
Art brought them together;  Now their art may keep them apart.

Blog Tour: NIGHT UNBOUND by Dianne Duvall (#Interview & #Giveaway)



Immortal Guardians number 5! Hello vampires and paranormal romance and welcome Dianne Duvall!

Thank you, Lexi!  I’m thrilled to be here!  AND I have exciting news to share.  I just found out that NIGHT UNBOUND hit the USA TODAY Bestseller list!  Thanks so much, everyone who picked up a copy and helped it get there!

Lexi: Book five! What an accomplishment, congrats on the release! When you started out with Darkness Dawns did you know you would bring the series this far?

I did.  From the very first, I envisioned the Immortal Guardians’ overall series arc as a snowball rolling downhill.  Bastien, the villain of DARKNESS DAWNS (and later the hero of PHANTOM SHADOWS), started the ball rolling when he raised an army of psychotic vampires, intending to destroy the Immortal Guardians, and enlisted the aid of Dr. Montrose Keegan.  Dr. Keegan then kept the ball rolling in NIGHT REIGNS with his own quest for vengeance by drawing mercenaries into the mix.  The enemies rising up against the Immortal Guardians have grown larger and larger ever since, the dangers they pose increasing exponentially.  And, as some of my Immortal Guardians continue to point out, it can all be traced back to Bastien.

SADDLES AND SIN by Jessie Evans (Guest Post & #Giveaway)



Robert “Bubba” Lawson, hero of SADDLES AND SIN interviews the author:

Robert: So…Bubba. What made you decide on that for a name? You like to make things hard for your heroes?

Jessie: No! That name has a special place in my heart. My best friend when I was toddler was named Bubba. We live on neighboring farms in Louisiana. We were the only toddlers around and our moms were besties, so I guess we had to be friends, but I still have very warm memories of him.
