The Police Woman by Justin W.M Roberts



Author                         Justin W.M Roberts 
Publication Date       31 October 2016
Genre                          Thriller Suspense Romance 





In the year 2026, narcoterrorism wreaks havoc on the world as drug cartels operate as dominating, murderous dictatorships. The powerful Irish Drug Cartel has set up drug manufacturing plants in England, Ireland, and Indonesia and they will kill anyone who gets in their way. 

Sarah is an ambitious policewoman from an antiterrorist unit called Densus-88. She's also smart, beautiful, and extremely good at her job, which is why she is assigned to an Interpol Incident Response Team, set up to find and stop The Cartel. Alongside colleagues from the United Kingdom's SAS, she must quickly learn new Close Quarters Battle tactics and apply them to a vengeful and threatening battlefield. 

Sarah's investigation appears to be going well until the fight turns personal. She must now struggle to save her friends, family, and even herself. Spanning the globe with a keen knowledge of special forces tactics and some genuinely shocking twists, this book warns of a bloody, drug-addled future we may soon face. 







This thriller is about the fight against The Irish Cartel and drug trafficking. This organisation has established a very profitable network across Great Britain and Indonesia. The key members are highly skilled and ruthless in their dealings.  

Sarah is a high ranking officer in Indonesia, handpicked by the antiterrorrist unit because of her skills and abilities. She is dedicated and ambitious with good future prospects. 

Michael is currently working undercover for Interpol in the UK. He is part of a team made up of officers from the different specialist units such as MI5 and SAS. This team's main aim is to track down and eliminate the Irish Cartel. A task which is proving to be difficult and dangerous.

Sarah has been drafted on secondment to assist this team in England because part of the Cartel's operation is based in Indonesia. She settles in very quickly and becomes a valuable member of this elite team. They work well together whilst brainstorming strategies to help accomplish their mission. Although Sarah gets on well with all the team members, she spends more time with Michael in and outside of work. 

They start comparing notes and when Michael comes up with a plan, she has no hesitation in playing her part. Whilst snooping around, they attract the attention of the wrong people and soon find themselves in a dangerous predicament. Having survived an ambush, they are now in a more dangerous situation than before. The Cartel doesn't take too kindly to this opposition and wants blood. Sarah becomes a target but The Cartel is in for a shocking surprise!

This novel is fast paced and action packed with no end of twists and turns. The team spirit is impeccable. The skills involved in each and every fight are very graphic. The Cartel uses brutal and psychotic torturing methods. There are traitors within the official departments. The training is very robust and life like. Despite all the carnage, there is love, laughter and humour. There are some heartwrenching moments,when I had to contain myself and ask why oh why? Then there is more! 

Although, this is fiction, there are some very interesting and informative historical facts throughout the story. I absolutely loved the interactions between Michael and Sarah as well as the banters with their colleagues. An engrossing and fantastic thriller with supreme tactics.

Loved by a Dragon (#7 Fallen Immortals) Alisa Woods



Author                             Alisa Woods 
Publication Date            24 March 2017
Genre                               Adult Paranormal Romance 






Book Seven of the bestselling Fallen Immortals series 

**START with KISS OF A DRAGON (Book 1)**
 

LEKSANDER

I am a Dragon Prince of the House of Smoke… and I am in love with the wrong woman. 

I never meant to fall for an angeling. And I wasn’t supposed to have the duty of fulfilling a ten-thousand-year-old treaty to protect humanity. But now I’m trapped between the immutable facts of magic and the irresistible force of my love. When a fae queen offers unparalleled sex and an unprecedented renewal of the treaty, the temptation is substantial. If only the prospect didn’t leave me hollow inside…

ERELAH

I am Protector class, Chastity faction—an angeling whose sworn duty and greatest joy is protecting humanity. The House of Smoke is likewise a guardian, and their prince is one of my oldest friends. Any angeling worth her wings would struggle with the Sin of Envy to take my place. But they know not of Leksander’s stubbornness in refusing his duty to mate and produce a dragonling. How hard can it be to win a human’s heart? I would give my life if it would help. All depends upon this… 

He must win her heart or finally let her go. Her vow of Chastity means she’s never known love. Either they’ll save the mortal and immortal worlds with a Love that is True… or they’ll bring a Fall like the world has never seen.

The House of Smokes has arrived at its last hurdle to fulfil the prophecy. The last unmated prince has to find true love to avoid the looming disaster. It's easier said than done! 

Leksander has been in love with an angeling ever since they first met eons ago. His love was doomed from the start and now that he has to fulfil his part of the prophecy, his primary duty is to find a mate. 

Erelah is an angeling who has never known love. Leksander is one of her only two friends. She has this intense love for humanity and knowing that their future lies with Leksander, she will give anything to make it happen. Except for her love. She is sworn to chastity. 

This instalment of the series is totally different from the previous ones. Leksander has always been diligent when it comes to his brothers' welfare and the prophecy. He knows that gaining Erelah's true love is near impossible but he is convinced that there must be a way. It turns out that he knows very little about her, even after being her best friend for so long. So much about her are mysteries to him. He is about to find out though. 

Unlike, with the heroines in the previous episodes, it took me a while to be able to connect to Erelah. She is of a complex but pure and innocent nature. The angeling regimes are rather harsh and she is conflicted by her feelings and her duties. The whole story is a sad state of affairs. The cliffhanger at the end raises more than one question and it will be interesting to see how the story unfolds. 

I have been a fan of this series from the beginning and now that the angels are more involved, I am even more intrigued. 

I received a complimentary eARC from the author and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Untapped - Weston Parker - Release Blitz




Untapped




Weston Parker
Publication date: March 28th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Thriller

Some desires are better left uncovered
Erik Bertinelli is the son of the vilest mob boss in all of New York’s underbelly. He’s the enforcer, the hitman for the syndicate, and the type of guy who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. His hideaway is as unconventional as they come… the New York Public Library.

With a thirst for knowledge and a grand getaway at his fingertips, he loses himself daily in the dusty tales of old. Life is too f*cked up most days of the week. Peace would be beyond welcomed.

Grace Adams desires more than anything to live fully alive, and yet, she’s doing just the opposite of that. She’s a librarian at the New York Public Library and spends her days wishing like hell that she could disappear into one of the romance novels she reads.

With an imagination that would shock her family and friends, she keeps to herself and lives in the colorful parts of her mind – alone. Untapped.

When the same deliciously dangerous alpha male keeps showing up between the bookshelves, her daydreams quickly dive into passion that feels too good to be true. The kind that could burn anyone involved. The kind she would do anything for. Maybe even kill…





EXCERPT

Grace

“It’s finally starting to get cold.” Thomas glanced over at me and smiled as we jogged side by side. His freckles were fading now that summer was gone, but a faint splattering of them was still there.

“This isn’t cold.” I snorted and reached up to tug at my ponytail as we ran past the University. The library rose up in the distance, and I felt a sense of belonging. I’d been working there for a while, and even though I had some difficulty with some of the staff, most of the people there liked me. And it was where I could find Erik.

“Hey. Did I lose you?” My brother reached over and tugged on my sleeve.

“Oh yeah, sorry. There’s this new guy at the library, and I think I’m going to ask him out.” I turned the corner and slowed for a minute as my lungs screamed for air.

“A new guy, hm?” He didn’t look too thrilled. “I don’t like it.”

“You’re my older brother, dimwit.” I stopped by a cement bench and dropped down to fix one of my tennis shoes.

 “You’re not supposed to like it.”

“When do I get to meet him?” Thomas ran in place as he scanned the lawn in front of us. His smile widened as he lifted his hand and waved. “Kara. Nancy. Hey girls. Looking good.”

“Oh brother.” I stood up and reached up to adjust my hair again as I turned to see who he was waving at. Cheerleaders. Had to be. Their shorts looked more like panties, and they were wearing sports bras. “There should be a dress code out here. That’s just offensive.”

He laughed. “Just because you dress like a Granny doesn’t mean you have the right to be ugly about other girls dressing their age.”

“Oh yeah?” I lifted my eyebrow and ran my hands down my long-sleeve t-shirt. “And you’d be okay with me wearing what they have on?”

“What?” His brow pulled tight. “Hell no. That’s not happening.”

“Right.” I rolled my eyes and started to jog away from him. “What did you want to talk about that we couldn’t talk at home where it was warm and cozy?”

“Mom and Dad were there, Grace.”

“You could have come by my apartment.” I glanced over at him, noticing the dark circles under his eyes now that I was really looking. He’d been a little on edge lately, but he was nearing his last senior semester at NYU. I assumed it had everything to do with that. What other stress could he have in his life? He was president of the largest fraternity on campus and everyone worshiped the ground he walked on.

Everyone but Jenna. I forced myself not to chuckle. My poor brother had been after my best friend for years, and Jenna was oblivious to it. Now he was too late. She was dating a hottie bad boy from the coffee shop where she worked.

“I hate going to your apartment.” He shook his head. “It’s embarrassing enough getting caught in a movie that has a sex scene with your little sister, but to go to her apartment and hear the perverts next door bonking every fifteen minutes is sick. No fucking way. Count me out.”

“They’re in love, Thomas. It’s cute.”

“Fucking all the time is cute?” He lifted his hand as he paled a little. “You know what? Don’t answer that. We’re good just talking out here.”

“Alright. Spill then.” I laughed as he gave me a ‘watch it’ look. My brother was a bit of a prude from what I knew, but we never really talked too much about our love lives. That was gross.

Love life. What a fucking joke. I’d never been tongue kissed by a guy, much less anything else. After my mother had Thomas when she was sixteen, she used a scare tactic to keep me a virgin, and it worked well.
I’d never been around anyone that left me wanting to defy her and my father and spread my legs anyways. Not until Erik Bertinelli. The thought of him left my heart racing, my body tightening. The things I wanted him to do to me were over the top, horrible, embarrassing.




Author Bio


Romance is a genre that is oftentimes written by women, but my novels give you the chance to see through the eyes of some of the men that perhaps you fantasize about, and the opportunity to read about passion from the other side for a change. Stories told about real relationships, legit problems and past experiences… unless you’re an ex, in which case any resemblance to women living or dead is merely a coincidence. ;)

My name is Weston. I’m a full time firefighter during the day, but I’m not here to put out any fires. I’m here to start them. Hope you enjoy my stories and feel free to reach out at any time. I love to flirt.

5 Stars 
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

More Than a Feeling portrays someone who goes from being a pauper to a famous rock star. 

Cooper's childhood is far from being normal. His determination drove him to make something of himself by leaving his hometown, never to return. He is now the lead guitarist of a prominent band. 

Daisy is working in partnership with some of the locals to raise funds for a resort which would benefit the community. The preparations are going well until one of the participants lets her down. 

Despite his vow to never return to his hometown, Cooper returns after a phone call for some urgent news that her mother is about to disclose. He is on break from a tour and intends to stay for just a couple of days. He bumps into Daisy who was in his music class and now that they both have a problem, they start to work together. This will be beneficial to both of them. 

Cooper has been crushing on Daisy for as long as he can remember but his way of life at the time made her off limits. To his surprise, he discovers that she has been carrying the same crush. There has always been this connection between them but a long term relationship won't work as neither of them will leave their current situation. 

When Cooper's mother gives him the news, he is surprised and has so many mix feelings that he is at a loss. Daisy proves to be a tower of strength. She has her own problems but makes time to help everyone in need. During their time together, their feelings get stronger but can they indulge as they both know that it can only last for so long? 

This novel is very deep. There is one surprise after another. The love and heartaches are palpable. Cooper is a loving and lovable character, proving that the past can be overcome. Daisy is strong and determined. She has a knack of putting things in perspective for the benefit of others. Family values are very much in the fore front. It's an emotive love story which I will quite happily read again. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Excerpt 

As they stood so close in the shadows of the covered porch, the connection between them alive and vibrant, Cooper realized his desire for her had changed. His attraction wasn’t that of a kid with a painful, unrelenting crush. He was a man who wanted things from her he didn’t have time to explore. “I should go. Thank you for everything. Today…tonight…” He shrugged.  

“I’m glad I could be there for you.”

He should go, but the potent energy between them kept his boots rooted. “Are you dating anybody?” He had no business asking, and yet he waited for her answer with as much anticipation as finding out his paternity.

“No. I mean, it’s Snowberry. The dating pool’s not that big. And if you break up, you’re stuck in each other’s faces the rest of your lives. I had two boyfriends in college, and I dated a little when I took my first job in Blue Sky, but going out with tourists grew old quickly. What was the point?” She looked away. “I think I’m just at an age where I’m not going to waste my time hanging out with someone who doesn’t excite me.” And then she let out a shaky breath. “If it doesn’t feel like this” –she wagged a finger between them—“then why bother?”

A fireball of heat rocketed through him. His heart thundered. He stepped closer and cupped her elbows. “What exactly does this feel like?” He shouldn’t have asked. Because as surprising as it was to learn about her interest in him as a kid, it didn’t have the same impact as feeling her body heat up, watching her lips part, and her lids lower. 

“It feels…” Her tone held a hint of whimsy. “Inevitable.”
When her fingertips touched his chest, electricity raced across his skin. His rational mind blurred, as he leaned into her, his mouth drawn inexorably to hers. Her raspberry-pink lips, close enough to kiss, elicited a fierce pang of desire that struck so deep and wide his heart ached. 

“Cooper.” She reached up and cupped the back of his neck, and with a tug she bridged the distance, joining their mouths. Just the barest contact sent a shiver of the sweetest, most perfect burn down his spine. 
He’d never wanted any woman the way he wanted Daisy Charbonneau. And when her fingers gripped the hair at the back of his neck he had to have her.

The moment he closed his mouth over hers, she leaned into him, holding him in place as though she feared he’d stop.

But he couldn’t. And when he licked into her mouth, their tongues touching, lust punched him. He went completely, painfully hard.

Daisy. This is Daisy. Her scent enveloped him, and her hair feathered over his arms, his hands. Like everything else she did, she threw her whole self into the kiss, and when she shifted closer, pressing her curvaceous body against his, he thought he’d go up in flames. His palms spread wide on her back, needing to touch every inch of her at once. With firm pressure, he slid them down—slowly, so he could feel the rise of her ass. When he had her cheeks in his hands, he couldn’t resist giving them a lusty squeeze. She moaned. Jesus, Daisy moaned, her body melting into his.

A bark of laughter from the path ripped them apart. He took a step back. The cool of the evening air snapped reason back into him. “Sorry.”

Her fingertips touched her mouth, and she looked disoriented.

“I’ll, uh, I’ll let you go.” He turned and jumped off the two stairs of her porch. But with each step he took away from her, the more frantic he became. Because this was it. He’d leave in the morning, and he wouldn’t see her again. He stopped at the end of the walkway and found her stepping into the warm yellow light of her house. 

“Daisy.”

She leaned against the frame, her hand resting on it like it had on his chest.

Haloed in the warm light she looked soft and round and so damn beautiful. He would never forget the way she’d moaned in his arms. “Goodnight.”

She nodded, pushed off the frame, and disappeared inside her home.
