Happy Book Birthday to Eva Devon with her newest release, Wish Upon A Duke. I am looking forward to this read!

EVa DevonBlurb: Lady Imogen Cavendish loves making merry. After surviving years of marriage to an old man, having seized her freedom seems the only intelligent thing to have done. Even so, years of dancing her way through parties has lost its’ luster and all she wants now is to spend most of the year on the small estate she’s purchased in Scotland. There’s just one thing. Her neighbor is an infuriating, superior, and exceptionally handsome duke!

An Arrogant Duke Who Knows It All:

Duncan Hamish Fergus, Tenth Duke of Blackburn, does everything right. Duty might as well be his middle name. After his father very nearly ruined his mother and sister’s life, Duncan is determined to never let the family name be tarnished again. Sacrificing his own pleasure seems a small price to pay until he meets the mad capped English woman, Lady Cavendish. In all his years on the path of righteous, no woman has ever tempted him to stray into sin, but no woman has ever been as mischievous or voluptuous as his saucy sassenach neighbor.

Can Imogen teach the oh so proper duke how to have a little fun or will two hearts be broken by propriety?

Release Blitz: ABSOLUTE SURRENDER by Jenn LeBlanc

Today we’re excited to share Jenn LeBlanc’s newest illustrated romance, ABSOLUTE SURRENDER. This book, like THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE: Redux, has gorgeous images to enhance the story.

Meet Jenn:

Colorado. Canon. Curls. CJs. Chuck Norris.

Born and raised in this beautiful state —very nearly with a camera in hand— I never left. I started my own family, got used to the curls, went to college, built a CJ, started a business, and totally beat the daylights out of Chuck Norris, all with a camera in hand.

Spending my days in parenting chat rooms I got highly adept with one-handed typing and I can still type just about as fast with one hand as I can with two. It’s a great talent to have when engrossed in a scene and in need of a hit of caffeine. Once I finished my first novel I quickly realized: I was born a photographer.

From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of MY book my control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into this completely new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers. The Illustrated Romance.

I live and thrive off chaos and the constant flow of the creative process. I wears shorts and flip-flops year-round —much to the chagrin of my friends and family.

The images from my book started a ruckus, and from there, #StudioSmexy was born, I’ve since shot over 300 romance novel covers, and currently shoot custom images for very special clients.

My first novel THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE: REDUX is doing its own Chuck Norris impersonation with the time travel charts on Amazon, where it took up residence for over a year. You can find me on Twitter and Facebook sharing eye candy (NSFW) and being a total rock star.

EXCERPT“Who painted all of the new additions in the room?” she finally asked. “I did,” he offered from behind, his low voice surprisingly close. Too close. She turned and stumbled toward him, realizing his boots were standing on the hem of her gown. “What—” His large hands jumped to her corseted waist as he stepped off the hem. “Forgive me.” Tightening his hold on the curve of her waist, he lowered his head to hers. “I was admiring your perfume. It’s…” He searched her face, his mouth softening. “How are you?” He lingered, his large hands skimming and then tightening on her waist. He heatedly lowered his gaze to her lips. He leaned in closer, the scent of freshly starched linen and his hair tonic piercing the air between them.  She froze, fully aware that his arms were not only drawing her body against his own muscled frame but that his rugged face was hovering above her own face. His lips edged down toward hers. The scent of spiced ginger from his mouth now teased the remaining space between them.   Heaven forbid he unleash what he was holding in and kiss her. She’d be pregnant in a day. She slapped both hands over her mouth, bumping his arms and kept her palms firmly and rigidly in place. So he had no access to her lips. At all. He stilled, the heat of his mouth grazing her forehead. “Are you trying to be adorable?” he rasped. “Or is this your way of telling me you’re not interested?”

Night of Pleasure (final) @ 2700 high resAbout NIGHT OF PLEASURE: An arranged marriage is daunting, but not as daunting as seducing a spouse whose passions you do not understand… Derek Charles Holbrook, Viscount Banfield, knew his fate since he was seventeen when his father announced his union to the beautiful but mysterious American girl by the name of Miss Grey. To protect the troubled estate, Derek submits to his father’s wishes, not realizing he’s about to entangle himself in a hell of a lot more than marriage. Miss Clementine Henrietta Grey may be worth millions, but not a single coin has ever bought her a smidge of happiness. When she marries the charasmatic and dashing Viscount Banfield, whose only strife in life appears to be the uneven seams in his coat, she finds that siring the heir he wants requires far more than her heart is prepared to give. Unable to seduce his overly-serious and reluctant wife, Derek realizes his dreams of creating a loving family has turned into a nightmare. But with the unexpected assistance of a retired courtesan and her outrageous school, Derek and Clementine discover that passion is a language spoken not just from the body, but from the mind, heart and soul.


My Thoughts:

I typically don’t fall for the hero in the first chapter but I totally fell for Dereck in chapter one. The moment he brought out his tin full of ginger drops, I was hooked. He truly is a sweetheart from the first pages to the last pages. Don’t get me wrong he isn’t perfect but he is the guy you want your daughter to fall in love with and marry. Truly a prince charming. Now, I know what you’re thinking, easy, typical prince charming the heroine is so damaged that he fixes her and they live happily ever after. Well, eh, no, not exactly. Do they have a happily ever after? It’s a Delilah Mavelle book, what do you think? BUT like Ms. Marvelle’s books she has some very entertaining twist and turns that I will not elaborate about but they will make you enjoy the book even more.

The heroine, Clementine is a girl I can identify with on so many levels. How can you not like when an American crosses the Atlantic with  her own opinions about life? She really gives Derek a run for his money but when we see the layers come off Celmentine you’ll want to hug the girl. She is very strong but even the strongest woman needs a hug. I love that Ms. Marvelle changes the rolls a bit in this story. The heroine is a bit standoffish and the hero is all about love and devotion. It’s a good twist and I enjoyed it. This book is a book you won’t want to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the end.

Review: A Rake’s Midnight Kiss (Sons of Sin #2) by Anna Campbell

Oh Anna Campbell you never disappoint. I have spent a good part of my summer reading Anna Campbell books as. She is becoming a book household name.

MY THOUGHTS of A Rakes Midnight Kiss:

16007701-1Take a brilliant scholar that is tucked away in the country having her vicar father taking credit for her work, match her with one of London’s most notorious rakes known as a bastard add a valuable relic and what do you have? You have story full of laughs, mystery, romance and sexual tension.

Genevieve Barrett keeps secrets. Her number once secret is her brilliant mind. She writes papers and her father who is the local vicar takes the credit. She has a plan to take control of her life and work. However her plans goes awry when a very handsome young man comes to study with her father.

Sir Richard Harmsworth is known in London as one of the titled gentleman that is a bastard as his sire is questionable. He has used his handsome good looks and incorrigible personality to get what he wants. What he wants the most is for the world to respect that he is Sir Richard Harmsworth the rightful heir to his title and having a ancient relic will help prove his claim. With the help of his friend the Duke of Sedgemoor, Richard finds his way to country and changing his identity to Christopher Evans a young wealthy scholar wanting to study with vicar. What Richard doesn’t fit into the equation is a beautiful young lady that will question himself and beliefs and make him realize what is really important in this world.

From the first meeting in the dark the sparks fly and you know this is going to be an exciting story with explosive characters. Genevieve and Richard spark across the pages with their fun banter and explosive personalities.  There is a lot of secrets being kept among all the characters in this story and it makes it fun while reading it. Richard is a hero you will fall for. He may have London believing he is a rake of the worst kind but he has a big heart tender heart and you cannot help but fall for him. Genevieve is a sweetheart that has been driven to be hard because all she wants is for someone to really say, “Your writing and work is amazing, great job!”.

This read was very different from the first book in the series (Seven Nights in a Rogues Bed). This story had a lot of comedy built in with suspense and action. Anna Campbell has a well ensembles cast of characters that having you turning pages to see what they will and do next. My favorite part of this book is the epilogue. In fact I have coined it as the best epilogue I have ever read. I had tears streaming down my face while I read it AND becuase I try very hard not to give spoilers in my reviews that is all I will say… BEST EPILOGUE EVER!

Anna Campbell keeps bringing her A game to each books she writes. I enjoyed all the elements of this story and I look forward to reading all about the Duke of Sedgemoor in the next book in the series.

Buy on Amazon or B&N.

All about HIS voice…(Laura Kinsale’s Narrator)

While attending The Romantic Times Book Lover’s convention in Kansas City, I was lucky enough to meet Laura Kinsale (OMG! I met Laura Kinsale!!!) and listen to her pink headphones.

The fabulous Renee Bernard recorded while I and the gorgeous Rachel Daven Skinner listened to Nicholas Boulton. They say first impressions are lasting.. I would say the video below shows that.
