Synopsis

All Tatiana ever dreamt of was to be human.

With one kiss, Tatiana has discovered a love for a man she’d hated—the prince of Natatoria. Through the botched rescue attempt by her father against this union, an army of rebels has revealed their identity and intentions—treason. When the King is fatally injured, Azor takes things into his own hands and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants: to be king. Including killing Tatiana’s father.

Invited to help on a mission with Jack, leader of the underground army, Jacob learns the truth about the kingdom and of Jack’s daughter, a girl with beautiful blue eyes and a heart of gold. Falling for her—a promised princess—wasn’t supposed to happen.

Caught between the bond and her family, Tatiana, the future Queen, must overcome the promise to fight for what’s right and uncover the truths of the past or all will become Everlost.

Guilty Pleasures

34659067

Synopsis

How can something that’s deemed wrong, feel so right?

He’s moody and argumentative and as if that isn’t bad enough – he’s my stepbrother.

I shouldn’t have theses feelings about him, but sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants.

Spying on my stepbrother, Neal, from the treehouse across from his bedroom window has always been one of my guilty pleasures. But one night, after I caught a glimpse of him undressing, I’m sure I saw him wink. I never imagined that my feelings for Neal could be reciprocated, but maybe he’s not as unattainable as I always believed.

Neal can have pretty much any woman he wants so can he really want me?

Rake’s Redemption

Synopsis

 

Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.

Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled…and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.

King of Wall Street

32503680

Synopsis

The king of Wall Street is brought to his knees by an ambitious bombshell.

I keep my two worlds separate. At work, I’m King of Wall Street. The heaviest hitters in Manhattan come to me to make money. They do whatever I say because I’m always right. I’m shrewd. Exacting. Some say ruthless. At home, I’m a single dad trying to keep his 14-year-old daughter a kid for as long as possible. If my daughter does what I say, somewhere there’s a snowball surviving in hell. And nothing I say is ever right.

When Harper Jayne starts as a junior researcher at my firm, the barriers between my worlds begin to dissolve. She’s the most infuriating woman I’ve ever worked with. I don’t like the way she bends over the photocopier – it makes my mouth water. I hate the way she’s so eager to do a good job – it makes my dick twitch. And I can’t stand the way she wears her hair up exposing her long neck. It makes me want to strip her naked, bend her over my desk, and trail my tongue all over her body. If my two worlds are going to collide, Harper Jayne will have to learn that I don’t just rule the boardroom. I’m in charge of the bedroom, too.

King of Wall Street is a sexy, standalone romance.

The Sexy One

32686234

Synopsis

Let me count the ways why falling into forbidden love is not my wisest move…

1. She works with me every single day.
Did I mention she’s gorgeous, sweet, kind and smart?
2. She works in my home.
Playing with my five-year-old daughter. Teaching my little girl. Cooking for my princess. Which means…
3. She’s the nanny.
And that makes her completely off-limits…But it doesn’t stop me from wanting her. All of her.

***

The other nannies in this city don’t call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention, the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around.

I can’t risk my job for a chance at something more…can I? But I don’t know how to resist him much longer either…

Uncommon Lust

27200474

Synopsis

First short story branching off from the novel series ‘Stanley Swanson – Breed of a Werewolf’. When Natalie who is a werewolf falls in love with Gravakus which is a Dracklulis (not vampire) as a war supposedly is to one day happen, they make their way to a distant place of safety. What was not expected was having twins born regardless if Gravakus bit Natalie to save her life. Twelve short stories of each character of my choosing will follow to tie in with the novel. What Gravakus and Natalie did was uncommon and not expected in time of tragedy among the opposites.

Sinner’s Lust

34356719

Synopsis

My heart is as hard as my c*ck.

The day my wife left me, I swore I’d never love again.
I’d do one thing and one thing only: F*ck and leave.
F*ck and leave, f*ck and leave, over and over again.
Like a prayer, like a mantra.

As long as I could bury myself in some pretty little thing,
I could ignore the carnage she’d left in her wake.
But life has a funny way of forcing you to face that which you least desire.

A chance encounter, a woman in need of my help…
And of course, who is it?

Her.

That fickle b*tch.
That heartless whore.

I want to do to her body what she did to my heart:
Tear, plunder, destroy.
I want to wrench her hair back and make her scream my name.
I want to leave the imprint of my hand on her flawless skin.
I want to own her completely.

But she has shadows following close behind her.
Men who hunger for repayment in flesh.
They want her as badly as I do.

I have only one thing to say to them:
Too damn bad.

I will not rest until my lust is sated.

Top Three Thursday – Books I Had Strong Emotions Over

Hello, wonderlandians. How is your day going? I just want to start off and say I am sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have been a little off. I am working on getting back on track and I will have some awesome stuff this month. Today, I am going to be talking about the three I have had strong emotions over.

Number 3.

Synopsis

Billy has long dreamt of owning not one, but two, dogs. So when he’s finally able to save up enough money for two pups to call his own—Old Dan and Little Ann—he’s ecstatic. It doesn’t matter that times are tough; together they’ll roam the hills of the Ozarks.

Soon Billy and his hounds become the finest hunting team in the valley. Stories of their great achievements spread throughout the region, and the combination of Old Dan’s brawn, Little Ann’s brains, and Billy’s sheer will seems unbeatable. But tragedy awaits these determined hunters—now friends—and Billy learns that hope can grow out of despair, and that the seeds of the future can come from the scars of the past.

My Thoughts

I remember reading this book back when I was in 8th grade so it has been 11 years since i have rad this book. I loved this book. I listened to audiobook when I was school. The way that Billy has to save and work for the dogs that he has wanted for a long time really teaches kids a good lesson. You have to work for what you want in life. Plus having those dogs really helped him learn some responsibility. Defiantly would recommend to all kids.

Number 2

Synopsis

After severely injuring Peter Driscal in an empty parking lot, mischief-maker Cole Matthews is in major trouble. But instead of jail time, Cole is given another option: attend Circle Justice, an alternative program that sends juvenile offenders to a remote Alaskan Island to focus on changing their ways. Desperate to avoid prison, Cole fakes humility and agrees to go.

While there, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear and left for dead. Thoughts of his abusive parents, helpless Peter, and his own anger cause him to examine his actions and seek redemption—from the spirit bear that attacked him, from his victims, and from himself.

My thoughts

I really don’t remember this book being as dark as the synopsis says it to be. I do remember the boy getting mauled by the bear. If I am not mistaken there is a little bit of the Greek mythology Sisyphus. He was the guy punished to roll the boulder a hill for he rest of his life only to roll back down once he got it to the top. I don’t know why this stood out to me. I was in the 8th grade when we read this book. I remember having a strong feeling towards this book.

Number 1.

Image result for among the hidden

Synopsis

In a future where the Population Police enforce the law limiting a family to only two children, Luke, an illegal third child, has lived all his twelve years in isolation and fear on his family’s farm in this start to the Shadow Children series from Margaret Peterson Haddix.

My thoughts

This book took me into the world. I was the girl next store. I was the mother trying to keep my boy safe. I was in every part of this book. It consumed me. That is the best way I can described it.

What are some book that you have had strong emotions for? Have you read any of these? If so, which one was your favorite?

Cover Reveal – Thigh Highs

Hello, wonderlandians. Today I have a cover reveal for you. Thank you to Xpresso Tours.



Thigh Highs
Katia Rose
Publication date: October 26th 2017
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Modelling lingerie for her arch-nemesis was not on Christina’s to-do list.

Then again, neither was he.

Aaron Penn might be the talk of the advertising school they both attend, but to Christina he’s just an egomaniac with a cocky smirk to match. Fast forward to the end of term, when a class project gone wrong has her stripping down to a negligee and letting Aaron photograph her to advertise a line of women’s underwear.

She expects suggestive comments and smarmy-eyed stares, but when Aaron gets behind the camera he treats her body like a work of art. Even though all she’s got on is a scrap of satin, the room suddenly feels way too hot.

As the tension between them builds to expensive-panty-melting-levels, Christina finds herself caught between falling for the complicated artist who knows just what poses to put her in, and wondering why he acts like such an irritating hotshot around everyone else.

Goodreads / Amazon

 

Author Bio:

Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.

Hello, wonderlandians. Today I have a cover reveal for you. Thank you to Xpresso Tours.



Dragon Blessed
Ophelia Bell
(An Immortal Dragons Novel)
Publication date: March 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Dragon-blessed twins Neela and Naaz have waited nearly three thousand years for their chance to awaken their fated dragon mates. On the brink of a war with the enemy who enslaved them, their commander finally sends them to do just that.

But the twins’ mission isn’t called “Operation Wildcard” for no reason. These dragons are unique. Zorion and Asha are the children of the Immortal Blue named Belah; Zorion was sired by none other than The Void himself, and Asha is the product of Belah’s ancient union with the dragons’ former enemy who is now their most powerful champion in the war. These dragons’ powers are unknown, and Neela and Naaz will be the humans to reveal them and recruit them for their cause.

But their true enemy is ever watchful, and when Neela makes a risky decision to reveal her new lover’s powers, things go wrong. It will take nothing short of immortal dragon fire to set things right, and neither twin will emerge quite the same.
