INTRODUCINGTHE DOMS OF PASSION LAKE

BRAND NEW EROTIC BDSM SERIES

BY JULIE SHELTON

Virginia is for lovers. Passion Lake is for…kinky lovers. Welcome to Passion Lake, a town owned and operated by a group of ex-Navy SEALs. A town where they are free to live their kinky lifestyles without fear of

 interference or censure.

A group of former SEAL teammates get together and buy the derelict, bankrupt town

of Porterfield, Virginia, along with thirteen square miles of surrounding land, and turn

it into the thriving tourist destination of Passion Lake, Virginia. Located in the foothills

of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the town boasts not only the large, deep-water lake from which it derives its name, but also farmland, grazing land, a couple

of creeks, scenic trails, and a World War I era airfield. The amenities offered include

a lodge with cabins, camping, boating, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, a main street

featuring both quirky and elegant little shops, and excellent restaurants. Passion Lake

is around 30 miles down the road from Marshall’s Creek, where Jesse Colter, Adam

Sinclair, and Sarah Marshall, the heroes and heroine of Loving SarahOwning Sarah,

and Keeping Sarah live.

Many of the Doms of Passion Lake were minor characters in my three books about

Jesse, Adam, and Sarah. Along with many of my readers, I felt they deserved books

of their own. So, if you’re curious about what happened to Clay “Raven” Nighthorse,

Nik “Iceman” Rostov, Jay “Dizzy” Gillespie, Ted “Solo” Solomon and all the other hot

hunky former SEALs, you’ll find out in this new series, The Doms of Passion Lake.

The first book in the series is Passion’s Dream.

My Review

This was a first book by this author for me and I have to say yay for me. I couldn’t be more pleased with the story and the characters.

Can one believe that chemistry between two people can be felt, in just one meeting? I am a firm believer that it is very possible. Since divorcing her cheating husband, Leah has pretty much kept to herself, do what she need to but more or less robotic, I’d say just existing. That one time at the beach with the stranger, she just cant shake the thoughts.

Clay is an ex-seal he and some of his crew up and bought a town and together its thriving. He also does side security jobs, just because. He’s been with women and enjoyed them, but yet the one that ran away is still haunting him.

my favorite line ” She might be the submissive in this relationship. But he was the one owned.”

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about this book, except that it ended. (smiles).

All the characters are easy to adore, the interaction between them fits into the storyline wonderfully. The love at first sight, the funny quips and teasing, the bit of mystery and danger just makes it a well read book. Not really BDSM heavy, but elements through out the very hot scenes.

Loved it and hope to read the others in this series, I do recommend it and Enjoy

 ADULT EXCERPT

Lifting his hand, he placed his fingertips against her cheek.

She jerked her head away, but otherwise couldn’t move. It was as if she’d been turned

to stone. “Don’t touch me!” She’d meant it to be an icy command, but instead it came

out a choked, frightened whisper.

Ignoring her, he sent his fingers on a journey along the line of her jaw, down the slender

column of her neck. He paused at the base of her neck, holding the tip of his index

finger over the pulse hammering there, betraying her agitation. The journey continued

down over her collar bones, across the creamy, sloping mound of her breast to the edge

of her modest bathing suit top. When she made no move to stop him, he hooked his

forefinger into the stretchy material. When she still didn’t move, he allowed his fingernail

to scrape against her tender flesh as he traced the outline of the fabric down to its lowest

point—the point where it stretched across the shadowed valley between her breasts.

“Don’t—” It was a choked whisper. She closed her eyes, but she made no attempt to remove

his hand. She was trembling, every clamoring nerve aware of his nearness, the potent

sexuality of his hard, male body so close to hers. “I-I’m engaged to be married.”

“Ah, yes.”    His lips twisted. “The ever-devoted fiance. Tell me, Leah,” he tugged her toward him, the weight of his hand pulling

the stretchy, jersey top outward, threatening to release the rounded fullness of her

breasts. “Tell me about him. What’s it like making love to an old man?”

She should have pushed him away. She should have stepped back—anything to put distance between them. Except she wasn’t standing. She was floating in

the water, anchored by her elbow on the pool deck and his finger hooked in her bikini

top. Unable to get away, she stared up at him helplessly, trapped as much by the

confusion leaping within her as she was by the sensual spell he seemed to be weaving

around her like a web.

Resting his left elbow on the underwater shelf, he released her top and lifted his hand

to shape the back of her head, those long, lean fingers threading through the damp silk

of her hair. “Does his touch arouse you?” Slowly, sensuously, he pulled her toward him,

closing the distance between them, until his firm, mobile mouth was less than an inch

from her own, his breath warm against her lips. “Does he set you on fire?”

The hard contours of his body brushed tantalizingly against the softly rounded curves

of her own as the cool water undulated against them.

“Does he kiss you like this?” Clay persisted, dropping a warm, feather-light kiss near one corner of her trembling mouth, “like a father?  Or perhaps like an

uncle or older brother, like this,” he pressed his lips first to her cheek, then, tilting her

head down, her forehead. “Or does he kiss you like a lover? Like this—”and his mouth closed over hers in a dark, golden storm, his lips expertly parting hers

to admit the probing sweetness of his tongue.

Leah stiffened and tried to pull away, but it was too late. The flame ignited by his touch

was all-consuming. Without volition, her arms went around his neck, her legs circled his waist,

ankles locking behind him. The sheer size of the erection pressing against her sex made

her gasp. Her belly plummeted, sending moisture gushing out of her pussy onto the

strip of fabric that was the bottom of her two-piece. She’d never been so aroused in her life. Her traitorous body arched toward his,

her hips grinding her sex against his cock. She moaned into his mouth as his arms went

tightly around her back, crushing her soft breasts to his hard chest. Locked together,

they sank beneath the surface of the water. Instead of panicking and struggling to break

free, Leah wound her arms tightly around his neck and held on, trusting in his care of her.

~Review of Predator’s Trinity ~~by Rosanna Leo

Predator Trinity

Predator’s Trinity

(Gemini Island Shifters #6)

Genres
Paranormal  Shapeshifters
Expected Release: August 24th 2015

Blurb:

Librarian Suzan Marsh is an empath and has always felt assaulted by the

feelings of others. She has had to distance herself from the people in her life,

raising a mental barrier to ward off unwanted emotions. When wolf shifter

August Crane abducts her, he breaks through the walls she constructed, forcing

her to accept a frightening new truth.

Jaguar shifter twins Percy and Byron Moon are familiar with the evil ways of

August Crane. Because of him, their childhood was destroyed. Because of him,

their way of life at the peaceful Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort is threatened. And

they won’t rest until he is dead.

When Crane drags Suzan into his cult and decides to make her his “concubine,”

Percy and Byron know they must save the human woman. Their connection to her

is strong and they cannot deny the dream they always held close. That they could

share a woman and make her their mate.

But even after rescuing Suzan, none of them are free from Crane’s clutches.

The wolf shifter has plans, ones that involve the demise of every shape shifter at

the Ursa Resort. Not only must Percy and Byron keep Suzan safe, they must

convince her to accept them both. In order to stop Crane from hurting everyone

they love, they must learn to fight together.

                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

After her shower, she toweled off and dressed in the clothes provided, choosing

a pretty green V-neck T-shirt to accompany the jeans. Everything fit perfectly,

from underwear to outerwear, as if the Moons had already

known her. It boggled her mind, but she couldn’t lose the sensation they were

connected by more than just circumstance. Her instincts never lied. After slipping

into a pair of soft white socks, she made her way toward the kitchen.

She heard Byron and Percy before she saw them and stopped to catch an excited

breath. When she heard what they said, she paused a moment longer.

“How’s your jaguar holding up?” Byron asked his brother.

She knew it was Byron. Despite them being identical twins, there were slight differences

in their voices. Byron’s was the smoother voice. Percy’s had the odd touch of sexy gravel.

“My dumb cat,” replied Percy on a near growl, “was up all night long. He keeps

pawing at me, trying to get to her.”

Her? As the burn of jealousy sizzled in Suzan’s gut, she gnawed on her bottom

lip in a futile attempt to quell it. Maybe Percy had a girlfriend and he was dying to

see her. Maybe he couldn’t wait to escape the cabin so he could meet up with this

woman and, well, let his jaguar loose.

“Yeah,” Byron said. “My cat’s in agony, too. I think my ribs are black and blue inside,

it pounds them so much.”

Oh, great. She wasn’t sure why this information astounded her. Of course men

like them would have girlfriends. Hell, they might have mates. She hadn’t bothered

to ask, had she? She’d already heard the mate bond was a powerful thing, that it

would drive any shifter to distraction, both sexually and emotionally. Why had she

been naïve enough to think these men might be single? She knew enough to know

the good ones were always taken.

She’d been so stupid to think they had a bond. Bullshit. Clearly, her empathic

tendencies had let her down for the first time.

“I can’t believe how quickly my jag … recognized Suzi,” said Percy.

Oh. Last she heard, she was the only Suzi around here.

Byron grunted. “I feel the same way. I’ve never felt like this. My head’s not working

properly. Fuck, I couldn’t even hold a bowl of eggs without losing it. Percy, we need

to discuss things. Seriously.”

“I know.”

“If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share, we can’t afford to make any wrong moves,

especially with Crane in the picture. We need to support her and not let our egos

get in the way.”

“Agreed.”

If Suzi is the one we’re meant to share…

Holy hell.

Predator’s Trinity will be available August 24 at www.lsbooks.com.

My Review

* *  * *

I’m pretty sure I just found another new fav author to add to my list. I had the pleasure of reading and Reviewing Predator’s Trinity. Rosanna’s style makes it easy for her to be a favorite. Decent length, not too short or too long, the characters filled out enough that you got a good feel for them. This is book 6 and though I haven’t read the ones before, its still a easy read and I had no problem following the story-line.

Often anything that is different gets shunned or made fun of, not many people take the time to get to know a person. But when family does it well it just makes you want to turn them in for a new brand. (smiles) The sexy and curvy Suzan and the gorgeous hunky twins the Moon brothers, would more than welcome the chance to have different family.

Because Suzan is a empath she has spent most of her time alone, the constant barrage of feeling everyone’s emotions is just too much for her. Byron and Percy they are Jaguar shifters and on a mission, they’ve heard a woman was kidnapped by their nemesis, they know just what happens to females under the “Great Alpha’s” care and they set about gaining her release.

What a great read it has sassy females all ready to protect their men, males with a bit of me tarzan you jane mentality, oh lets not forget the evil bad and he puts a whole new meaning to being a baddie. The honor as well as the evil will have you on your own mission to finish the story. Love and loyalty, saddness and compromise. Top that off with a big fat cherry of hot sexy make ya have to fan your face.

Oh yeah I can’t wait to get my paws on some more of Ms. Leo books. Enjoy

Excerpt

“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek.
“That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her.
“No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands.
“I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.”
I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.”
Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable.
My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.”
“Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.” A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other.
I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips. “It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes.
“Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?”
I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.”
“You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke.
All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her.
Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted.
“Another?” Lisa interrupted.
“We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off.
“Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away.
Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered.
Was she jealous?
“I don’t want her.”
“She’s a sure thing though.”
I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.”
“All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.

My Review

Whats fun is usually the unexpected, we work so hard at reaching out goals whether

they are simple or a bit more complex-ed I’ve had the pleasure of reading Chelle’s books before and just love them and her

characters.

Oh I so love Fran DeLuca, though Im sure if she was my parent I’d find her annoying.

(smiles) Seeing some of the characters from previous books was just a big hit for me.

You have a drop dead gorgeous male home from a tour of duty, not sure what direction

he will take in his life. He’s been a loner and thinks he likes it like that. Then a job

opportunity comes to him that just may have him second guessing his way solitary life.

Meet the workaholic, her whole being is her work. She is so focused on climbing that

ladder that she simple has lost herself. Sexy and sassy and in your face kinda business

woman. She is used to being in control and running her life. When scandalous threats

come to light, she cant control the outcome and it pushes her to seek help.

This was so much fun, the back and forth between Race (love her name) and Morgan,

the play between the families. How they stuck by each other, just hella cool. Nice plot

and the added danger makes a bit of tension as you read through the pages. Added to

the wonderful personalities is the heated scenes that only make you wish you were Race.

(smiles)

Thank you Chelle Bliss for this wonderful reading opportunity. I do recommend it. Enjoy

Release blitz for~ I See You by D.H Sidebottom & Ker Dukey

I See You Blitz Banner

CU Book Info

Title: I See You

Co Written By: D.H Sidebottom & Ker Dukey

Genre: Dark romance

Release Date: June 15, 2015

CU Synopsis

 

I watch you, I see you in ways no one else can, and through my lens I create a life of you for someone to dissect. I capture you in your vulnerability; that smile, your laugh, those tears. I document you and sell your secrets.

When I watch you through my lens you’re mine until I pass you to the buyer. I, like most people, have a fetish for pretty things and in my job I get to be around a lot of pretty things. They pay me to watch them and capture them in a frame for many purposes, and sometimes I like my profession a little more than I should.

I took a job to capture her… I wanted to capture and keep her in more than just the image. This time I will take myself away from the lens and become the client because I cannot resist her, she reminds me too much of my first, I need to have her.

Traumatised from a vicious attack, Nina Drake finds herself shut off from the world until her neighbour brings her out of more than just her nightmares. Even after moving and changing her name, she still can’t shake the feeling of being watched. The memories are so close.

And so is the shadow of the creator of them all.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Title: The Alion King

(Paranormal Dating Agency #6)

by Milly Taiden

Isabella Barca is great at organizing—not so great at keeping her nose out of trouble. When Bella goes to work as Mrs. Wilder’s assistant, the opportunity of a lifetime pops up: travel with Gerri to another planet, a shifter planet, and help Gerri find a lion king his mate.

Alyx Treyvaal isn’t known for being patient. A lion doesn’t ask for help. A lion doesn’t apologize. And he most certainly does not purr. But once he meets Bella, he finds himself doing all of the above…except for purring. He will not purr.

With wolves stirring all kinds of trouble for them and a cousin who would like to shred Bella to ribbons, things are not simple for the couple. Not at all. One thing’s for sure, when his mate is taken and threatened, the entire planet will hear the lion king’s roar.

Reader Note: This book contains panty-melting sex (the kind that makes you need ice cream and a cold shower), adult language (we like some freaky dirty talk), and mild violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with a sexy Alion King on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!

Can be read as a standalone

My Review

Just have to say loved it!. I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC of the 6th book in the PDA Series. Milly brings it to us again. A bit of everything wrapped up in a story that I read through to the end at one sitting. The story line easy and smooth with no having to go back and re read. The characters are full of personality and easy to adore… ok like. (smiles) Hell who doesn’t want Gerrie as a grandmother?

If you were a King would you want to know beyond a doubt the woman you are going to spend the rest of your life with, is about you not about you being royal. Alyx the King of the beast, is just that King, proud as well as stubborn and has been on a mission that well, just hasn’t worked out. His best friend sends for the Matcher, and when Gerrie bring her new assistant with her, its were magic begins.

A sexy male whispers in your ear in smoking hot dirty detail what he’s going to do you. Would have any girl squeezing her thighs together. Bella knows in her mind things are moving a bit fast, but when you find a gorgeous man that doesnt seem to mind your size, yeah want to jump all over that.

Milly wrote some scorching scenes I be like damn girl.. bring it. All about that sizzle. a moment or 2 of WTH danger, just to keep it interesting.

I loved it a great new addition to an already fab series. A stand alone. Enjoy

Evie Carter has faced trials and tribulations her entire life. Her teenage years have been ripped away from her as she battles cancer. Just when things can’t get any worse, her doctor delivers the news that it’s finally time to make a life or death decision. Her options are limited and come with deadly consequences. The miracle drug that is meant to save her life changes her on a cellular level. She might not be damaged anymore, but she might just be damned in her new life.






“I’m so sorry—” begins Dr. Lu“—but, Evie isn’t going to survive her treatment. Her body is beginning to shut down.  She was just too weak to make it through the procedure. I thought she would be strong enough after her pre-trial exam, but even I could not predict her reaction to the procedure. I fear that in just a few short hours her brain activity will cease and her blood pressure will rapidly begin to drop. We’ve made her comfortable so you can say your goodbyes, but barring a miracle or an act of God, Evie is gone.” Heavy sobs fill the room as my family breaks down at the news.

Gone? How in the fuck am I gone? I’m right here! I want to scream at Dr. Lu for scaring my parents like this. I just need to get more of these drugs out of my system so I can show them that I am still here. I feel fine! I feel better than I have in months and she’s telling my family I’m dying? I don’t understand!!  I AM RIGHT HERE! 








Avelyn Paige is a born and raised Indiana girl. She may be a Hoosier by birth, but she’s a Boilermaker by choice! Avelyn lives in rural Indiana with her pastor husband, 2 spoiled cats, and one very odd looking dog.  She’s an oncology research scientist by day and a writer and book review blogger by night. She enjoys reading anything she can get her hands, baking, and spending time with her friends and family.

Never intending on ever writing her own book, the idea behind the Damaged series came to her on a drive to work early one morning thinking about her father who’d recently passed away. His strength during his cancer and rare blood disease battle inspired Avelyn to do something she’s never thought about before. She’s excited to see where this wild ride takes her.
