Excerpt Love and Lust in the Tropics by Derrick West 

She knew their time was very short, and she knew this was the end. She had to have him close to her just one more time. To feel the fire of his passion envelop them, wrap itself around her, become one with her. To feel the heat of him inside her, the warm explosion of his desire filling her.
He felt it too. Pressing her back, he lifted her up on the edge of the table in the cabin, lifting her skirts as she parted her legs for him. Their ship rocked with the explosion of their cannons firing on their pursuers as he pressed himself into her. Their eyes locked together, drawing their souls into each other as she drew his hard desire into her. The fire of passion burst within her, their eyes blazing into each other as they were rocked by a climax they knew would be their last in this lifetime.
Their eyes remain locked as their lips were drawn together.
“My God, you know how to love me, Leif! Never again in this lifetime will we get to feel our love so closely and so wonderfully.”
“Not in this lifetime, dear woman; this is the end of this chapter, isn’t it?”
“But just this chapter, darling man. In our next lifetime, let’s not be pirates. Let’s be respectable people. Let’s settle down and raise a proper family. Maybe a house and a garden.”
He looked deeply into her soul, his eyes soft now with tempered passion. His lips lingered close to hers as he spoke softly. “And could you live a domesticated life, dear woman? Your heart and soul are wild and free, and you know as much as I do how much you adore running full sail before the wind, fighting the damnable overlords who oppress anyone they can, just to feed their greedy need for bloody profits. It’s what you live for.”
“I don’t know, Leif. All I know is that this love we have is something bigger than we understand, and we need to be sure and find each other again next time, and try and get this right. I want more than a few years with you next time. I want a lifetime with you.”

dance with my heart

Traumatized by her past, former police officer Jane Dillon gets a new start in Los Angeles as a bodyguard. If she weren’t so good at saving people, she might seek a new career. At least when she moonlights as a dance teacher, no one shoots at her. One impossible-to-please macho boss, one hunk of manly hot action hero, and one oversized Southern family set her on a course she never saw coming. Former Navy SEAL, Danny Baker, has a lot to deal with between his dad’s health, his sister’s public breakup, and figuring out how to get rid of a female employee without getting a sexual discrimination suit filed against him. He’s always believed it to be his duty to protect women and children, but seeing the beautiful and lethal Jane in action turns his worldview upside down. He’d almost rather go back to the jungle, except the dance floors of L.A. and the woods of Georgia are providing plenty of excitement. If they can overcome their differences, Danny's family, and Jane's past, they might find that they make the perfect team. 


“What about you?” Danny asked. “Who taught you to dance?” “My grandfather, sort of,” Jane said. “He put me in karate and dancing when I started kindergarten. He didn’t know what to do with a little girl. I guess he tried to find balance for me.” “Thanks to him, you can kick my ass and dance circles around me,” he said over his shoulder as he did a merengue step in place, while she literally danced around him. “I’ll have to thank him if I ever meet him.” Before she returned to face him, she flared her fingers as she ran her hand across his back, feeling the taught muscles there. She tore her gaze from the fluid movement of his hips to see his eyes twinkling with laughter. What had he been saying? Oh yeah, Grandfather. Jane didn’t have the heart to tell him her grandfather had passed. Because it reminded her of how alone she was in the world, she didn’t like to think about it.

#1 bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and steamy Slow Burn series with this second book—a twisting tale featuring a strong yet vulnerable heroine in danger and the sexy alpha hero who must save her.

Abandoned as a baby to a young wealthy couple and raised in a world of privilege, Arial has no hint of her past or who she belonged to. Her only link lies in the one thing that sets her apart from everyone else—telekinetic powers. Protected by her adoptive parents and hidden from the public to keep her gift secret, Ari is raised in the lap of luxury, and isolation. That is, until someone begins threatening her life.

Beau Devereaux is no stranger to the strange. As the head of Deveraux Security, he’s more than familiar with the realities of physic powers. So when a family friend approaches him about protecting his daughter, he’s more than ready to jump on board. What Beau isn’t prepared for is the extent of his attraction to his beautiful and powerful client. What began as a simple assignment, just another job, quickly turns personal as Beau discovers he’ll do anything at all to protect Ari. Even if it costs him his life.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review.  

I have to say that I wasn't sure if this was going to be something that I enjoyed or not.  While I love romance, I am not huge into suspense novels.  It is one of those things that I have to be in the mood for.  That being said, I really did like this book.

Ari is a girl with a secret.  It has been one that she has had all of her life.  When it comes out into the open, she has no choice but to run to the man that her father told her to, Beau. 

I like Beau.  I think he was a  good guy who has the luck to be attracted to a woman that is gifted.  

The story was well-written and there was good character development.  This is the second in the series but I think you could read it as a stand alone. 

Now, that being said I do think there were times when the dialogue was a little dry and repetitive but that happens.  I am also a little tired of the instant love scenarios.  I completely understand being attracted to someone but it seems like everyone is instantly jumping into bed, saying I love you or just things that seem a little outside of reality.  I know its a romance book but still...

I am a fan of Maya Banks and I would recommend you check out the series and let me know what you think.

Fat Louise

Biker Bitches # 2 
Jamie Begley
Releasing Jan 23rd, 2015
Young Ink Press

She needed a hero; instead, she got Cade.

Cade was no hero. He was a nomad, a wanderer with no ties and he liked it that way. Hired out to save Fat Louise and her spoiled sister from a cartel run Mexican city was a risk he was willing to take, for the right price. With a certain gray eyed woman on his mind, he sets out to find her, fuck her and forget her. No harm, no foul. But it's all easier said than done when it comes to this plain Jane.

He expected a biker bitch who knew the rules; instead, he got Fat Louise.

Fat Louise wasn’t about to put her crew in danger. She had to learn to handle problems on her own, even if they included a six-foot biker she was forced to rely on, if she was going to rescue her sister. She never expected to see Cade again after she'd left Mexico, but all it takes is one night with him to prove that even a bitch’s heart can be broken.

"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Divine Atrophy by Fox Chapman


In the quiet town of Barra, Scotland, darkness is falling…

To Reverend Alan Wallace, the tiny town is his haven and its people his flock. When an ancient artifact is unearthed within the catacombs of his church, he seizes the opportunity for greatness and to cleanse his Barra of sinners and nonbelievers, but as with most good intentions, a darker purpose lies beneath the surface just waiting to arise…

In the town of Barra, Scotland, lies the key to mankind’s destruction in the guise of salvation…
And with the beginning of the end nearing, six strangers find themselves brought together by an ancient horror and a need for survival. Drawn to Barra for their own reasons, they will need to rely on one another if they are ever going to get out of this hell alive…

Because in the town of Barra, the fallen shall rise…everything else will fall…



Grotesque, terrifying, and simply too good to put down!

Cleverly written, the story unfolds one point of view at the time. With each chapter, my anxiety level escalated and I couldn’t seem to read it fast enough. Just when I became sure that I had perceptively figured everything out, the story took another turn. The characters are placed strategically, sometimes with heartbreaking consequences, and every jolting experience had me chasing shadows. While the ending leaves an opening for the next installment, this segment wraps up rather nicely!

I’d like to add one small note:

I abhor, and I mean hate, young children involved in horror novels or movies. I have literally walked out of movies or stopped reading books from certain authors, due to this hang up of mine. The brilliance of Fox Chapman is that he made his monsters, MONSTERS. There was no hang up to have here. His evil creations were gory, scary, and something I wanted dead, FOREVER.

Triumph and Treasure
Highland Heather
Romancing a Scot Series

A disillusioned Scottish gentlewoman. 

Angelina Ellsworth once believed in love—before she discovered her husband of mere hours was a slave-trader and already married. To avoid the scandal and disgrace, she escapes to her aunt and uncle’s, the Duke and Duchess of Waterford. When Angelina learns she is with child, she vows she’ll never trust a man again. 

A privileged English lord. 

Flynn, Earl of Luxmoore, led an enchanted life until his father committed suicide after losing everything to Waterford in a wager. Stripped of all but his title, Flynn is thrust into the role of marquis as well as provider for his disabled sister and invalid mother. Unable to pay his father’s astronomical gambling loss, Flynn must choose between social or financial ruin. 

When the duke suggests he’ll forgive the debt if Flynn marries his niece, Flynn accepts the duke’s proposal. Reluctant to wed a stranger, but willing to do anything to protect her babe and escape the clutches of the madman who still pursues her, Angelina agrees to the union. Can Flynn and Angelina find happiness and love in a marriage neither wanted, or is the chasm between them insurmountable? 


This is a quick, romantic read that starts off a little erratic and then evens out to reveal a beautiful story.

I love the main hero, here. He’s intelligent, compassionate, and strong. He’s better tempered than most Scotsmen in the fictitious world during this era, and his love of family enhances his character. I say “main” hero because there’s a few secondary characters that go to bat for our enchanting couple, earning them the title as well.

Although the heroine is naive, she is intelligent. I like the fact that the author makes her easily relatable, as we’ve all had our momentary lapse of reason when we were young. As with the hero, there are a couple of women that could claim the title of heroine in this story.

With That Being Said…

I have to mention that although I enjoyed the story, there were a few times that I felt a little overwhelmed. There is so much unneeded drama! The story turns more than a carousel, and there are several side stories that may play out in the rest of the series, but seem unnecessary in this book. I was a little disappointed and felt there was a lack of focus, which is surprising for such an outstanding author.
On The Other Hand..
In the author’s defense, I haven’t read all of her previous novels. Although this novel is the beginning of a new series, it includes a few couples that are obviously from former stories. However; this does not take away from the current story completely. If anything, it adds intrigue, and makes me want to grab the rest of her writings! I’ve been following her for some time, and I know that her extensive knowledge of the Regency era is extraordinary. This knowledge is one of the reasons I adore her so, and I enjoy the way she utilizes it through her novels. 
I recommend this for those who love drama, laughter, love, and heartbreak!
