It’s the Devil’s little girl versus Daniel Webster…

Devlin’s keen legal mind had always kept her two steps ahead of opposing counsel. It didn’t hurt that she’d learned from the best dealmaker in the history of…well…existence. When your dad’s the Devil, expectations are high! She’d worked her tail off to become the best lawyer in town, and she wasn’t about to blow it all now.

When a business deal threw Daniel Webster in her path, Devlin had to wonder who she’d pissed off in another life! He was the most insufferable opposing counsel she’d ever had the misfortune of bargaining with. There was no way she was going to let Daniel the Douchenozzle derail her deal…no matter how annoyingly sharp or distractingly attractive he may be!

Can they find a way to see eye-to-eye in negotiations, or will they wind up eviscerating each other in the boardroom?

EXCERPT:

CHAPTER FOURTEEN

WHEN LIFE GIVES you lemons, squirt them in your enemy’s eye. Devlin was fuming, this was not what she expected when she’d asked to see company records. Daniel had clearly put a lot of thought into today’s campaign of torture. How had she ever been so delusional as to think there was a less offensive side to him? Daniel had buried her in boxes of paperwork, and to top it off, the contents were all jumbled. Devlin had spent the last two hours trying in vain to match statements and invoices, vendor agreements and payment terms, and various banking and legal documents. Thank Lilith Adrian had stopped by with a massive cup of coffee. They had turned out to be Devlin’s secret savior!

It had been eerily quiet working in the broom closet, but that was what you got when you were stashed away under the stairs. Devlin had actually started to get into a rhythm as she shifted from box to box when her concentration was broken by the sound of a squeaking wheel. She poked her head out of her hidey-hole and saw someone she’d never met before, wheeling a dolly stacked with more boxes of files toward her. Devlin felt her irritation morph into a low-grade, simmering rage. She gave the unfortunate delivery person a tense smile as they slid the boxes off the dolly. Her aura must have been pretty dark. She’d never seen someone back away from her that quickly in her life. Drawing on very deep reserves of self-control, Devlin lifted the lid off of the top box in the new stack…

Mother F… She ground her teeth to keep the shriek of anger in. The overhead lights in her cramped office flickered madly for a moment as she jammed the top back on the box and took a seat on the tiny stool she’d been given. Devlin rested her elbows on her knees and dropped her head into her hands. Daniel has his whole life to be an asshole. Why couldn’t he have taken today off!?!

Devlin raised her head at the sound of a new email notification. She reached out and slid her laptop across the tiny desk to read it. The message was from Daniel. He apologized for not meeting her when she arrived (yeah right) and was looking forward to their meeting at eleven (about as much as a root canal). He wanted to put in a lunch order so it would arrive shortly after their meeting concluded (food was good), so could she please let him know what she’d like (ok, that was actually thoughtful…weird). Hoping for the best, Devlin fired back a simple reply.

Thank you for ordering lunch. I’m not too picky when it comes to food, so please go ahead with anything you know is good at whichever restaurant you order from. The only thing I don’t like is fish. Thank you!

As she hit Send, Devlin caught the time on the corner of her laptop screen. Sifting through mountains of bullshit had definitely killed most of the morning. It was already almost eleven o’clock, and she had to hustle upstairs for their meeting. Why Daniel had chosen to email her about their lunch order instead of just asking her during their meeting was a mystery, but, hey, if it wasn’t another box of files—or hidden coffee—she wasn’t about to question it. Devlin shut her laptop, adjusted her hair and outfit, put on her most calm, professional expression, and strode out into the lobby and up the stairs to the second floor.

Thankfully Adrian had pointed out Daniel’s temporary office on their Black Ops mission that morning, so Devlin knew exactly where she was headed. His door was closed when she arrived, and she could hear the muted sounds of a conversation. Devlin took a seat in a chair just outside the door to wait…and wait…and wait…

An hour. Devlin was back to simmering rage. She had emailed him, texted him, and knocked on the door. Daniel hadn’t so much as acknowledged her presence the entire time she’d waited. This day felt like one of her dad’s torture scenarios, and to make things worse, the screen on her phone had been glitching on and off. She was about to get up and bang on his door again when it flew open, and there he was…with his coat on.

“Oh, sorry! I totally forgot about our meeting!” Daniel exclaimed, leaning hard into a melodramatic performance of apology.

“Where are you…” Devlin tried to interject, to no avail.

“I have to step out. Put something in the books for another day and enjoy your lunch!” Daniel shouted as he barreled past her and down the stairs.

Devlin stood rooted to the spot in shock. What the actual fuck just happened? There was nothing left for her to do other than return to her storage closet. Devlin walked back down the stairs on auto-pilot.

“Ms. Laflamme?”

Devlin snapped out of her stupor at the sound of Max’s voice. “Max, yes, what’s up?”

“Mr. Webster wanted to make sure you got your lunch.” Max held out a plastic bag that clearly held containers of food.

“Thank you, Max.” Devlin reached out and took the bag. Eating her feelings seemed like a good plan.

Devlin collapsed onto her shitty, tiny stool and dropped the bag onto her desk. She attacked the knot tying the plastic handles together like a ravenous beast. When the bag opened, Devlin felt like crying. The smell of fish wafted from the takeout container, filling her tiny faux office and making her stomach turn. Devlin was done. She had no more fucks to give, and her reserves of cheek turning had run empty. She opened her laptop and fired off an email to Daniel.

Daniel, I have spent years dealing with difficult people in boardrooms and being underestimated as a legal professional. The treatment I have received at your hands makes every other experience pale in comparison. I have never felt so disrespected, targeted, and demeaned in a business or personal setting in my life. I will endeavor to conclude business between our companies posthaste in order to minimize and, if possible, eliminate any future interactions. I hope you’re proud of yourself. Sincerely, Devlin Laflamme

Devlin slid her laptop back into its bag, put on her coat, and walked out. Dealing with Daniel was like trying to play chess with a pigeon. He just flew around, shitting all over the board and acting like he’d won.

Bargin With a Beast

Bargain with a Beast
Grace Goodwin
Publication date: September 27th 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Science Fiction


Adrian Davis thought getting on a real-life, ‘beam me up, Scotty’, transport pad was adventure enough. Visiting her mother—and the Atlan beast her mom had chosen as a mate—on another planet? Setting foot in an Atlan prison? Completely crazy.

Like totally, bat-shit, what-the-hell-was-she-doing-with-her-life crazy.

She was supposed to spend a few days wandering around with her twin sister, seeing the sights, expanding her horizons. The trip was supposed to be a much needed break from the hectic schedule she was keeping in school. She was only nineteen. She had plans. Finish college. Medical school. Husband. House. Two-point-five perfect kids and a golden retriever named Buddy.

All that changed with one roar of pain. She heard him. A beast. He was out of control, locked behind an impenetrable wall, alone. Suffering the agony of mating fever.

Ready to die. Forsaken.

Adrian can’t let him go. She will have to fight a centuries old system, warlords on another world, and the beast himself to get what she wants.

To save him.

To keep him for herself.


Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

EXCERPT:

Turning my head, I found my mate and her sister both staring at me, hands on their hips. Stances, identical. Adrian’s expression? Determined.

The other female had more sense. She had the decency to be nervous, biting her lower lip. “I don’t know about this, sis.”

“They won’t even realize where I am until tomorrow.”

“I know. But you know how much I hate lying to them. What if they check on us when they get home?”

Adrian chuckled. “They won’t. Mom can’t keep her hands off him. They’ll be too busy bumping uglies to worry about where I am.”

Bumping uglies? Ugly what? And why would they bump?

“I’ll worry.”

“That’s why you’re going to be back here in exactly four hours and let me out.”

Stephanie looked at me, inspected me from head to toe. I remained silent. “What about him?”

“I’ll figure it out. After.”

After?

Stephanie’s head dropped backward so that her face looked up at the ceiling. She groaned. “God. And you were making fun of mom for being a horny wench. This is insane. You know that, right?”

“I know. I don’t care. I’m calling in my twin card.”

“Oh, I know. You told me. Why the hell do you think I’m down here again? And low blow by the way. I used my twin card for that stupid calculus test.”

Twin card?

“Not my fault I saved mine for something juicy.” Adrian gathered her sister to her, their heads identical in height as well as form. In fact, the twins were remarkably similar except for my mate’s beautiful hair. “Look. I’m going in there. I know what I know. I can’t explain it, okay? You have to trust me.”

The brown-haired twin’s voice was muffled in her sister’s neck. “Okay. But if you die, I’m going to be really, really mad at you. Like, forever mad.”

I’m going in there?

Adrian’s words finally registered, and I moved forward to tower over them as much as I could with the energy barrier still between us.

“You will not enter this cell, my lady.” I was furious that she would take such a chance. Still, I could not force a threatening tone from my throat, not while I spoke to her.

And my lady? What evil spirit possessed me to speak those two words?

Fuck. What was happening to me? I should shout. Rage. Scream. Act like an out-of-control beast ready to rend and tear and kill. I could do none of those things. My beast, it seemed, had as tight a leash on me as I did on him. He would not allow me to frighten her. Would not allow me to disrespect her. Upset her. Injure her in body, mind or spirit.

Gods be damned. What the fuck was I going to do now? I could never offer her my mating cuffs. I could not. I would be executed in a matter of hours.

I could offer her nothing.

With a low rumble, my beast disagreed, shoving erotic images into my already fracturing mind.

Adrian released her sister and turned to face me. This close she was even smaller than she had at first appeared. Yet her eyes blazed with defiance. “Stephanie?”

“You sure? Really, really, really sure?” Her sister moved toward the control panel.

“Do not,” I ordered.

“Twin card. Playing it. Now.” Adrian ignored me.

Stephanie sighed. The energy barrier dropped.

Adrian took three steps forward. Her scent washed over me. My beast growled. My cock throbbed in pain. My vision blurred. I ordered my limbs to move, to remove this female from my cell. The beast took control of every cell, every muscle of my body. The transformation moved through me. My muscles screamed as they exploded, grew larger. My bones elongated. My beast shoved me aside as if I were no more than a wisp of fog in his peripheral vision.

The energy barrier reappeared, locking her inside the cell.

With me.

With my beast.

The Women of Wayward Mates

While I was creating these images, I had the great pleasure of once again visiting each couple. I found things that I’d missed before. So, take a minute and revisit some old friends!

Reluctant Retiree

Brought to Heel

  • Name: Skylar Owens
  • Species: Wolf, Alpha female

  • Mate: Dylan Grainger, Alpha of Calon Gwyllt

Marked and Mated

  • Name: Darby Callan
  • Species: Wolf

  • Mate: Griffin Owen, Alpha of Bae Diogel

Claimed and Mated

  • Name: Catherine Livingston
  • Species: Wolf, Turned Human

Claimed and Mastered

  • Name: Ava Rhys

Creatures of the Night

by C.A. King

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Zoe spent her whole life training how to fight demons—how to kill them. Not once did that curriculum include falling in love with one. Now, she’s faced with a hard choice: betray one to save the other.

Will she side with the family and friends who have always been at her side, or trade it all for the romance she so deeply desires?

Odds are, no matter which path she follows, her heart won’t make it out unscathed.

I was diagnosed with clinical depression after the loss of my mother, father and husband within three years of each other; all to cancer. 24/7 in-home care, coupled with the loss I felt, left its mark on my psyche.

Depression takes up a lot of my life. Reading and writing are the only things I have found that help (in connection with regular medication), even if only for a short time. To escape to a different world can make a big difference in my mood in real time.

To put things in perspective, when I was at my lowest point, I couldn’t open mail, talk on the phone, or even drive to the store. Walls of sadness surrounded me. As they closed in, tears would fall. There didn’t need to be a reason or trigger.

People ask me why I started writing. My answer is simple: I wanted to create a world into which other people with similar problems could escape. I wanted to share the one place that had helped me for many years.

I have always said that as long as one person finds a little bit of happiness out of my books, I am, in my opinion, an accomplished author. The same is true for every writer out there. Please don’t ever let anyone tell you different.

I read books as well as write them and have visited the worlds many different authors have created. Those worlds not only make me feel better, but give me the strength to face real life again. I want to thank everyone who writes—I want them to know they are making a difference.

Fast forward to today…

Genre: Dark Paranormal Academy Romance

Dark Paranormal Academy Romance. *Enemies-to-Lovers*
OCTOBER RELEASE 2022


We are the monsters in your stories.
Vampires, Knights, Fae and Shifters,
All so merciless and bloodthirsty.
But even monsters have things to fear in the dark.


Vampires are the elite of the Shadow Realm, and since I’m one of them, I should be sitting pretty in the world my parents designed for me… an arranged marriage to some other vamp to continue the bloodlines.
That’s my purpose: Marry and have a child.

Simple, right?
It should be. Problem is, I’m a
stunted vampire. It’s no secret, either.
Powers I
should possess escape me. No matter how hard I train at the Moon Academy, I can’t muster a single ability.

It’s my final year to break free from this mockery shadowing me, produce some sort of power that makes me worthy to my wicked society. My sole focus will be the manifestation of my dormant powers—

At least, that’s what I had intended. But when my attention starts shifting to a Knight who is forbidden to me, and savage murders are rampaging through all of our hidden towns, schools and cities, I’m starting to worry I might not make it to the end of the year at all…


Please be aware that the Blackbird worlds and characters are dark and don’t hold their punches.

DEN OF SERPENTS is a *dark* paranormal romance. Here, you’ll find vampires, hunters, fae and shifters as brutal as lore intends.

Hades – Cover Reveal

Hades
Felicity Heaton
(Guardians of Hades, #9)
Publication date: October 4th 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance


The fate of our world rests in their hands.

Hades, god-king of the Underworld, has uncovered the mastermind behind the uprising destined to set his realm and the mortal world on a collision course. But his enemy has gone to ground and finding them is proving impossible, and the longer they elude his grasp, the stronger the darkness within him grows, slowly stealing control.

Persephone, god-queen of the Underworld, can only watch as a storm gathers on the horizon—a deadly war that threatens to strip her beloved family from her. As Hades fights his own battles against their enemy, she fights to keep the darkness within him at bay, never more aware of the danger he would be if she failed to keep it tamed.

But when their enemy strikes out at them from the shadows, dealing a blow that changes the course of the war and incites Hades’s wrath, the leash on the monster within him snaps and he is plunged into the darkness.

And saving this world might no longer be an option.

Hades is the epic conclusion to the Guardians of Hades paranormal romance series from NYT / USAT best-selling author Felicity Heaton.

Rules of the Pack

Alisha Knight is a down-to-earth woman who just so happens to have her sights set on the beta of a large werewolf pack. But despite the way her body reacts to his powerful presence, bitter experience has shown her that a wolf pack is no place for a human girl.

As his alpha’s trusted second-in-command, Phil McKenna takes his responsibilities seriously, even when that means taking disobedient females over his knee for an attitude adjustment. Though he is smitten with Alisha, the feisty little human friend of his alpha’s mate, humans and wolves don’t usually mix well and her presence could easily put both her and the pack in danger.

Yet try as he might, Phil can’t keep his hands off Alisha. His fearsome urge to mark her, claim her, and dominate her completely is only increased when her defiant attitude earns her a hard, bare-bottom spanking. But when the pack is attacked by a cunning, vicious enemy and Alisha’s life is put in grave peril, Phil must decide if he is ready to cast aside caution and take her as his mate.

Phil is the beta enforcer of a werewolf pack. He takes his job very seriously, handing out punishments when someone shows him or another ranking member disrespect or puts themselves or the pack in danger. Alisha is a human, but grew up knowing about werewolves her entire life. When she meets Phil, she knows that he's the man for her. The only problem is, Phil's not convinced that she would be a good mate for him because how do you have a human woman as a mate in a werewolf pack that is surrounded by danger?

This was a really great story. As I was reading, I thought I knew what was going to happen next and then a twist would happen, changing up the entire story.

I loved the tension between Phil and Alisha. They both clearly liked each other, but due to their pasts they both tried to fight their attraction for one another. Phil wanted to keep Alisha safe and Alisha also knew that being a human in a werewolf pack maybe wasn't the smartest idea. As the old saying going, 'the heart wants what it wants'. These two hearts wanted each other and when they finally got together, it was explosive.

Very well done Ms. Raine. I can't see what couple you write next for this series...maybe Cal and Portia...please. 🙂

Reading this second book of the gifted author, Adaline Raine, was a wonderful treat. It was like seeing old friends and catching up since Marked By The Alpha and more about the pack. It again had romance, suspense, danger, violence, erotic sex and spanking. I would love to see a third book, hint, hint.

Phil is the enforcer in the pack, he makes sure that everyone follows the rules and is respectful to one another. If they aren’t, he’ll give them a firm spanking. When he meets Alisha, a human, he can’t help but be attracted to her. Alisha is also attracted to Phil, but after a few bad experiences, she tries to fight her growing feelings.

This was the first story that I’ve ever read of Ms. Raine’s. I have to say, I found it quite enjoyable. This story flowed very well, even though it was a sequel, I didn’t feel lost while reading it. The sex and spanking scenes were hot! Especially the build up to Alisha and Phil finally mating!

I really liked all of the characters. They all seemed cool. I wish that we could have gotten to known Portia better. She seems like she’s hiding something. Maybe that was something in the first book I missed. If not, then I hope that there is a third book to explain what Miss. Portia is hiding.

Overall, this was a great story and I look forward to going back and reading the first in the series.

Shifted Reality: A Multiverse Fated Mate Romance (Looking Glass Multiverse Book 1)

This is such a wonderful story. Almost like a retelling of Alice through the Looking Glass, but not quite. The theme of dominant males continues to hold sway with this new series. Angelique and Rogan are great together. I love her response to everyone. So looking forward to reading more!

The Reluctant Retiree

One moment in time was all it took…
I shouldn’t be here. I’m not even sure how I got here—wherever here might be.

Angelique
I find myself swept into the arms of a stranger before he passes through a looking glass into another world. He tells me I am his fated mate and he is claiming me. I don’t know him…except he looks eerily familiar to the alpha in my successful wolf-shifter romance novels.

Rogan
Imagine my shock when I looked through the mirror my mother has magicked and my fated mate was on the other side. I did what any great alpha would do… I stepped through and took her. She is mine and I will not allow anything to take her from me. Not even another reality in the multiverse.

Can Angelique find happiness with the alpha of the pack or will she somehow be pulled back through the looking glass?

Lily who had been mate to the Alpha until he had been murdered had now been continued living with her son who had taken over the Summer Port pack as Alpha and like his father before him was a strong Alpha, he protected his pack and ensure that they were all well cared for.
Rogan had been looking for his Fated Mate and he had continued to search for her and was surprised when his mother Lily had told him that she knew where his Fated Mate was and that once found would never be separated from in life, in death they believed they pass into the ever-after together.
Lily had also been mated for the second time to her second fated mate and the fact that Bryson who was also his Beta and had known for many years that Rogan’s mother was his fated mate but had been prepared to wait until his Alpha was in agreement for them to be mated.
The fact that Angelique had been living her life through the void where she spent her days as an author that wrote romance books, at present she had been writing a small series of books that had been based on wolf shifters, they resided in Summer Port and the Alpha that had taken over after the death of his father was Rogan.
When Lily finally negotiates with her son that she had found his mate and if he would simply view her via the mirror if she was correct, he would have found his mate, if not the mirror would be lost forever and the void would close, no one but Bryson, Rogan and Lily would know about the magic mirror, it would no longer exist and his mother could then become Bryson’s fated mate, the mating agreement carried out before her son and omega with them instantly going into seclusion.
This is a wonderful start to this amazingly different series that already suggests a wealth of different characters and stories for us lucky readers to enjoy.
I assure you that you will love every moment of this book it is simply a fantastic read.

“Magick Mirror on the wall, tell me who is the fairest of them all.”
"If all he’d ever given her was flattery, he wouldn’t be where he was—lost in the darkness and separated from the light, with only occasional glimpses into the lives and souls of those outside the Void… outside of time and space. But it is here in the inky blackness that he belongs, for he helped her with more things than just flattery. Many believe the tales of Snow White are fantastical and untrue. They are wrong."
James, Delta Shifted Reality: A Multiverse Fated Mate Romance (Looking Glass Multiverse Book 1) (p. 5). Kindle Edition.

Delta James has hit it out of the park with her new series, "Looking Glass Multiverse" and the first book, 'Shifted Reality' is beyond anything I expected. I've provided a small teaser from the Prologue of the book and it just gets better from there. I've sat here and typed, then erased several times trying to write this review but I find myself wanting to share so much of this story that I finally came to the conclusion I couldn't do it … not to another reader or to Ms. James, so this is what I'll tell you. As I was reading this story, I could literally picture Ms. James as the main character for a bit. I giggled at her attitude and could see her typing at the laptop and having those silent conversations with herself and it was like I was immediately a part of her life. Now, for the rest of the story. The Hero and heroine are absolutely the perfect foil for each other. Both with strong personalities. Rogen's mother Iris is a force to be reckoned with, for sure. As a matter of fact, she becomes a heroine in her own right. There are multiple fated mates at play here and a magical mirror who is trying to atone for misdeeds. If this is what is representing the remainder of the series I can barely contain my excitement because this book was wonderful

Iris, who dabbles in magick, has located her son's fated mate. She whispers to Angelique, giving her the wolf-shifters' stories. Angelique has no idea, until Rogan picks her up and takes her to his own reality. From there, the steam rises and threatens to melt your kindle.
Multiverses? Wolf shifters as the apex species in the world? Yes please! I've read most of Delta James' books, and each one outdoes the previous ones. Advance was my favorite book, but this one? Wowza. Plenty of spankings and alpha and beta wolf vibes abound here. When two couples find their HEA's in one book, you know the author is doing something right. The next book in the series is set up in the epilogue, and I'm waiting with bated breath for it. Seriously, one click this one right now and get lost in an amazing world.

I received an advance reader copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest review

Marked by the Alpha

Dani had always been a lone wolf and she had no desire to join a pack, but that didn’t matter to a true alpha wolf like Mason Daniels. When he finds out that human hunters have been threatening Dani, he puts his mark on her.

Unfortunately, the hunters are foolish enough to disregard his mark, and Dani is captured. After Mason and his pack rescue her from certain death, Dani is given no choice about joining Mason’s pack for her own protection. She soon learns that Mason is fully prepared to spank her bare bottom as often as is necessary to teach her to respect and obey him.

With more hunters closing in and the pack under threat, Mason begins to realize that he must claim Dani as his mate for life—whether she likes it or not—before his need for her drives him mad. At the same time, she is forced to learn her role in the pack and come to terms with her instinctual need to submit to Mason as her alpha and her mate.

Dani and Mason immediately draw you into their story and world of shape shifters. Dani is a feisty independent wolf shifter who has ran into problems with the local hunters. Mason is a man who is most definitely all Alpha and determined to protect not only those in his pack but ones like himself.

Right from the start I drawn to Dani and Mason and the passion that sizzled between them from the first time they meet. Dani has always been a loner and never had the love of a pack or family behind her except for her best friend Alisha who has caught the eye of Mason's second in command Phil.

If you like hot sex, strong alpha's and feisty women not mention a hint of danger all rolled into one story then I highly recommend Adaline's paranormal erotic romance. You won't be disappointed.

This is a fun were-spanking read! Dani, an alpha female who has grown up without a pack, finds herself attracted to the alpha male of a large pack but is unwilling to commit herself to pack life, especially trusting and leaning on others. Mason gives her a few over the knee lessons in respect and obedience, but resists claiming her until she's on board with it.

I enjoyed this first book from Adaline Raine and look forward to reading future books by her.

Mason and Dani spar from the very beginning. They are both alpha wolves, but he will be respected, or her butt will pay. Dani is slow to trust anyone except her bestie, so she won't be sitting pretty. This is the first book I've read by this author. Looking forward to more, especially since this tale is set in the same world as one of Delta James' Wayward Mates series books. Mason is much more likeable though.

On the surface this is a paranormal werewolf romance and discipline and alpha male story but what I really loved about it was the way it put into a story the conflict in a modern woman's mind of the need to be independent, strong and self-sufficient versus the much deeper and harder to define desire to submit in spite of her independence. A book that can speak to your soul as well as your imagination
