Re-release of Elle Kennedy’s Out of Uniform

Three sizzling-hot stories from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

Give a SEAL an inch, and he’ll take your heart.

Heat of the Moment

For almost a year Shelby has lusted over swoon-worthy Garrett, but she can’t figure out why he’s not interested… until she overhears him saying she’s too vanilla for his taste. When a heat wave sends the sexy Navy SEAL into her bakers, she finally has the opportunity to show him exactly what he’s missing…

Heat of Passion

Holly has too much on her plate to think about a series relationship. A hot fling with a SEAL, though, is the perfect way to take the edge off. The last thing she expects is to run into her gorgeous one-night stand weeks later, and to discover that Carson wants the one thing she doesn’t: more. In the face of his methodical seduction, her resistance is crumbling…

Heat of the Storm

Will has waiting fifteen years for the storm that sends Mackenzie into his arms. He’s the one man not scared of her psychic gift, and their one night of passion is enough to convince this tenacious SEAL that they are much, much more than friends. Now he just has to convince her of that…

Warning: Contains dangerously hot Navy SEALS, and heroines not afraid to take them on one—or two—at a time.

Book Review 31: The Roman by Sylvain Reynard (The Florentine Series #4)

Title:The Roman
Author:Sylvain Reynard
Release Date:06 December 2016
Publisher:EverAfter Romance

Raven and her sister, Cara, are at the mercy of a small detachment of Florentine vampyres, who are delivering them as a peace offering to the feared Curia in Rome.

Though she’s unsure William survived the coup that toppled his principality, Raven is determined to protect her sister at all costs, even if it means challenging Borek, the commander of the detachment.

In an effort to keep Raven from falling into the hands of his enemies, William puts himself at the mercy of the Roman, the dangerous and mysterious vampyre king of Italy. But the Roman is not what he expects …

Alliances and enmities will shift and merge as William struggles to save the woman he loves and his principality, without plunging the vampyre population into a world war.


This stunning conclusion to the Florentine series will take readers across Italy and beyond as the lovers fight to remain together. Forever.

Rating: 5/5
Review:
I didn’t want to read The Roman when it finally downloaded to my Kindle because I didn’t want Raven and William’s story to end so soon. However, my curiosity won out and I finished it in less than a day.

Giving a thorough review would lead to spoilers so let me just say that The Roman was a seamless, breathtaking, heartbreaking, swoon-inducing, and thrilling read. Sylvain Reynard really knows how to wield a pen. SR can make you feel as if you were right next to Raven and William as they fought their battles. All of the characters, both old and new, are far from one-dimensional and very easy to envision – meaning that some other characters are downright bone-chilling (Yes, that character. And that. And that…). I love how the book was written and I can’t wait to get my hands on the paperback (I’m counting on you, Book Depository!) to read it again. I was a bit uncertain about the twist in the end but I came to the conclusion that I wouldn’t want the story to end any other way. Although, I do have a question which I can’t ask without giving anything away… Drat.

To anyone looking for something different, I highly recommend Sylvain Reynard’s works. I look forward to reading more of SR’s works in the future.

In misTaken by Laurelin McGee, Jaylene is an independent woman whose feminist values run deep. The last thing she wants is a man telling her what to do. Until she meets her mysterious new neighbor.

In Burn for Me by Shiloh Walker, Tate longs to spend his nights with Ali, a woman he’s loved for years. But while Ali’s heart aches for him, her head has reservations.

Author: Sylvain Reynard

Release Date: February 3. 2015

Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi gallery restoring Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semiconscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attackers’ screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her . . .

Cassita vulneratus.

When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. Upon returning to the Uffizi, no one recognizes her. More disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of her disappearance, Raven learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history—the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the police identify her as their prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and most elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets . . .

Book Review 11: Once Upon A Rose by Laura Florand

Title: Once Upon A RoseOnceUpon_Cover3_2
Author: Laura Florand
Release Date: January 26, 2015 (ebook)

Coming at last is the launch of the much-awaited new series! Book 1 of the Vie en Roses series, Matt Rosier’s story, is ONCE UPON A ROSE. This series takes us to the heart of one of the great, old fragrance families in that famous fragrance region in the south of France, where valleys are full of roses and jasmine, lavender and olives grow on the hills, and one family, the Rosiers, has been establishing power since the Renaissance and is not at all interested in giving any of that power up.

Excerpt

The scent of roses reached her from Matt’s hand, mixed with the apples of her shampoo, and she closed her eyes against a wave of hunger. It didn’t help. Closing her eyes meant that all she could do was feel—his hand shifting in her hair, his breath brushing over her lips, the cool shade of the street after the sun of the fields, and the press of a knocker against her back. The silence of the stone seemed to hold her safe in it. A gentle echo sounded of someone walking down another cobblestone street below. She wanted him to talk again, into her darkness.

“Are you going to kiss me?” Layla whispered.

“Yes.” Just that one deep vibration of his voice through her, while his hand sank deep enough to cup her skull at last, cushioning it from the hard door as his mouth closed over hers.
