Top 5 Favorite Dishes for Larissa Ione's of REVENANT Holiday Table (#Giveaway)

Hello, everyone, and happy holidays! Today I’m going to share my Top 5 Favorite Dishes for My Holiday Table. Maybe one or more of these will make your list!

Let’s get started, because I’m hungry!

1. Turkey. Now, I’m mostly a vegetarian, but when I travel and during the holidays, I tend to slip, and one of the reasons is turkey. I really love it smoked, but I’ll take it any way it’s served!

2. Dressing. Dressing, not stuffing. I love to mix it up every year and try something new…maybe with cranberries or apples and sausage…I’m all for tradition, but I also like to take one traditional dish every year and do something different.

The Kinky Christmas Blog Hop (#Giveaway)

Shout out to WeLoveKink for putting this Kinky Christmas Hop together! XOXO
It's Christmas time. It's cold outside, most places. We're all looking for a little something to warm us up and we all know that the naughtier the girl, the more interesting the present Santa leaves. *wink, wink* The hot Santa I'll be featuring today appreciates getting a little naughty over the holidays. And one that wears leather while riding a Harley definitely sounds like my kind of man in red! So what does a scarf, a belt, a pearl necklace, a feather pen and Christmas all have in common? Read this excerpt from SANTA WORE LEATHERS to maybe find out!

18868336"Aren't you teasing me, big guy?"

"I've only begun." He lay the pearls aside and reached for the feather pen. Turning it around, he flicked the feather beneath the curve of her breast and across her nipple. Her mouth opened slightly as her nipple peaked even more. "Every time you use your pen from now on, you'll think of the naughty ways I've used it." He moved to her side and trailed it down her stomach. "Naughty?" Her voice had a breathy quality which hardened him to the point of madness.

He flicked the feathers across the tops of her thighs near their junction and she arched again. "Oh, yeah, baby. Naughty." Tossing the feather aside because, really, why should it have all the fun, he scooted farther down the bed and began licking her ankles. Slowly he worked his way up her toned legs, inhaling her scent and loving every inch of her satiny smooth skin with his hands and lips.

When he reached the apex of the most luscious pair of legs he'd ever had the pleasure of tasting, her moans were a real turn-on, shooting a rush of hot blood to his groin. Still, it was nothing compared to her withering and fisting of the comforter when he feasted on her. With the second stroke of his tongue, she climaxed. The shriek of his name tumbling from her lips was something he'd not soon forget. he stayed with her, giving her tender kisses and touches until the spasms receded.

#Review: Blood Moon by Lisa Kessler - 4.5 Wine Glasses

23604924Title: Blood Moon 
Series: Moon #3

One bite can change you.
And one kiss can change your destiny... 

Nadya Dalca has been handed a death sentence. She's been bitten by the last living genetically enhanced werewolf―part of the Nero Organization's disastrous Moonlight project. With the poisonous blood now coursing through her system and pushing her to the limits, it is only a matter of time before Nadya's fate is sealed...

Gareth Takoda told himself he couldn't get involved. Caught up in a maelstrom of grief and bitterness, he has been isolating himself from his Pack. But when he is charged with watching over Nadya's first transformation―or bear witness should it go horribly wrong―Gareth is torn further by unwanted desire and the need to protect what is his.

One kiss changes everything. One shattering, all-consuming kiss. And with it, Nadya and Gareth face either salvation...or death. 

Linda's Thoughts:
Gareth - “No room in my world for drama, and the last thing I needed was more death. This beautiful woman would bring me both.” 
Nadya - “He looked dangerous, but in the short time I’d known him, he’d always made me feel safe."

Katie Lane's of THE LAST COWBOY IN TEXAS Favorite Holiday Memories (#Giveaway)

Favorite Holiday Memories

One of my favorite childhood memories was the year I got a GI Joe for Christmas.  At first, I was ticked off that I didn’t get Ken.  Every girl knows that Ken is Barbie’s one true love.  But my military dad thought Ken was a sissy so I ended up with a scowling Navy dude with bendable limbs and Kung Fu grip.  And guess what?  Barbie fell held over heels for her Alpha Joe.  Not only could he wrap his arms around her when they danced and kissed, but with Kung Fu grip, he could hold her purse when they went shopping.  Joe turned out to be the best gift ever and started me down the path of Alpha heroes.

Thanks for having me Reading Between the Wines!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

#CoverReveal: ASA by Jay Crownover

Today we are super excited to help reveal the cover for Jay Crownover's 6th book in her fantabulous Marked Men series - ASA! I can. not. wait for this book. It is going to be soooo... good! 

(Marked Men #6)
by Jay Crownover 
Paperback, 416 pages
Expected publication: April 21st 2015 by Harper Collins
ISBN 0007579098 
Jay Crownover’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with the much anticipated story of southern charmer and certified criminal Asa Cross.

Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn’t it change its spots and Asa has always been a predator. He doesn’t want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one luscious arresting cop who suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is hard, and it’s easy to hit bottom when it’s the place you know best.

Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career but her partner’s life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends she’s trying to muddle through her confusion and devastation all alone. Except she can’t stop thinking about the sexy southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on Asa is the last thing she needs but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already shaky career and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak.

A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong . . . but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

Audio Book #Review: Maiden and the Monster by Michelle M. Pillow - 3.5 Wine Glasses

15890822Title: Maiden and the Monster
Author: Michelle M. Pillow
Narrated by: Mason Lloyd
Length: 10 hrs and 55 mins 
Format: Audible Audio Edition
Version: Unabridged
Published: July 1st 2012 by The Raven Books

Rating: 3.5/5

Vladamir of Kessen, Duke of Lakeshire Castle, is feared as a demon in the land of Wessex. The Kings have granted him a title of nobility in exchange for his part as a political prisoner. Discontent, he bides his time in his new home until war will once again rip through the land. But boredom soon turns to devious pleasure as the daughter of his most hated enemy is left for dead at his castle gate. Now the monster bides his time plotting revenge.

Lady Eden of Hawks' Nest doesn't know what to think of the man who saved her life, but she can't wrench her thoughts away. His words are those of a tyrant, true to his vicious reputation, but his touch is that of a man, stirring passion and lust when there should only be fear. It would seem the infamous monster is not as monstrous as he appears.

Rating: Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, and violence.

Linda's Thoughts: 
“Will she survive it? I told his lordship she would. I didn’t want to give him an excuse not to help her. Methinks that if he suspected she was near death, he would turn her out.”

“I don’t know. Methinks it depends on her will to live. If she doesn’t want life, she’ll die.” Haldana sighed. “I’ll stay with her and watch over her. Please, direct the girls to take over my duties.”

“Yea. ‘Tis already done.” Ulric narrowed his eyes in heavy contemplation, drawing back the coverlet at the girl’s bruised throat. His frown deepened. It looked as if she’d been strangled. “M’lord has put her in my charge until she awakens. He wishes to speak to her then.”

“Methinks that m’lord is more frightened of her being here because she is a woman and a woman of his class.”

“Yea, methought it also. He didn’t think much of me saying she was a beauty.” In truth, Ulric only saw the line of the lady’s slender body outlined by the coverlet and the fullness of her lips, but he’d mainly called her beautiful just to aggravate his lordship. He let go of the coverlet, letting the old material fall once more to cover the noblewoman’s neck. He moved his fingers to stroke the wiry hairs of his mustache.

  “Wouldn’t it be nice if she was sent here to melt the curse from his lordship’s heart?” Haldana sighed, wistful. “Yea, even the curse from this castle. Then the Monster of Lakeshire would leave us be once and fer all.”

“You are a romantic dreamer, dear girl.” Ulric kissed Haldana briefly on her forehead and turned to leave. “Let me know at once when she awakens.”

“Yea, Ulric, I will.” Haldana let her girlish giggle echo in the chamber as he shut the door. From outside the chamber, he heard her say, “Poor child. You don’t know what you have gotten yerself into coming here.”
