Dirty Rich Obsession (All Mine - #8 Dirty Rich) Lisa Renee Jones - Blog Tour








In this lifetime there is one person who will own you, who will know you, who will understand you like no one else could possibly understand you. That person for me is Carrie. I didn't want to love her. I didn't want to need her. But now that she's my world, no one is going to take her from me. Yet the minute I propose, that's exactly what the universe tries to do. It tries to take her from me.

My father and the many enemies my life as my father's son has created wants to take her from me.

They'll be sorry they tired.

She's mine.

All Mine.

And everyone, including Carrie, is going to know.

🌟⭐🌟⭐

All Mine brings Reid and Carrie's intense love story to a splendid finish.

After their engagement, Reid and Carrie go to Hong Kong to close one of their biggest business deals. All is well on that front, but there are some stumbling blocks which could threaten their business, their reputations and their happily ever after.

The rivalry between their fathers is still present. Carrie learns a few home truths about her father and Reid's father remains on his vindictive path. Reid unveils more secrets to Carrie. Secrets that could make or break their relationship. Then Reid's past returns to haunt him, again threatening his reputation and his relationship.

I like the change in Reid and the intensity of his incredible bond to Carrie. The support from Cat, Reese and the Walkers is constant. It's a sensual story, filled with lies and deceit. It's a great storyline. Nicely paced.

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

REID...


Reid pulls me close, his fingers tunneling  into my hair before he says, “Ever fucked in a limo, baby?” and before I can answer, his mouth closes down on mine and he’s crazy, hot kissing me.

“Well?” Reid challenges, his lips parting mine after a scorching kiss. “Have you ever fucked in a limo?”

“No,” I say, my hand flattening on his really hard and perfect chest, while my sex clenches in denial of my rejection about to follow. “I have not and I’m not starting now. Have you?”

“No,” he says. “Which makes it all the better that I do it with you. The only woman I plan to ever fuck again in this lifetime.” He kisses me and his hand slides under my shirt and over my breast.

“We paid a lot of money for this private limo,” he says. “Let’s enjoy it.”

“We?” I ask, catching his hand under my shirt but it does no good to stop him. His fingers shove down the lace of my bra.

“Yes. We. What’s mine is yours and just to be clear, you’re mine now.” He latches onto my nipple with his fingers and I moan with the sweet friction.

“Reid,” I whisper huskily.

“More, baby?” He rolls me to my back onto the long leather seat and then comes down on top of me. “You want my mouth on your nipple?”

“Stop,” I warn, clenching my thighs to no avail. His big body is separating them, and both of us have a leg dangling off the seat. “We can’t—”

He kisses me again, a deep, drugging kiss, while his hand squeezes my breast, and his thick cock nestles against my sex. I moan and he presses his cheek to mine, his lips at my ear. “I do believe you need my mouth on your nipple right now.”

“Reid,” I hiss, but it’s too late. He’s dragging my shirt up and over my head, tossing it aside and almost immediately his mouth is on one of my nipples, suckling, and licking. “What if—”

He kisses me. “I paid for privacy.”

I push on his chest. “We’re in Japan. How do you know you really paid for privacy?”

“It’s Japan, baby. They respect agreements here, more than Americans.” He kisses me again and his hand slides around my backside, squeezing and lifting me against him. “Maybe I should spank you right here.”

“No!” I say urgently, shoving on his chest again. “Not a chance in hell.”

He laughs low and sexy. “But I can fuck you?”

“Are you really  trying to negotiate right now?” I challenge.

“I’m just trying to get inside my future wife.” He strokes a lock of hair from my face, his expression softening, his voice tender now. “Wife, Carrie. I never thought I’d call anyone that. I never thought I’d want anyone like that.”

My heart squeezes. “Husband,” I whisper. “From asshole to husband. I never—”

“You changed me, Carrie. You. Just you. And I need you to know that I will protect you. That I will never hurt you.”

My fingers splay on his cheek and I know he’s thinking of the girlfriend that gave up her life for him. “Reid, you can’t walk around afraid for me. That’s not living.”

“I will protect you,” he promises, his tone guttural, as if I haven’t even spoken, his mouth covering mine in a deep kiss, before he returns to my nipple, this time I don’t fight the pleasure. He needs this right now. Maybe I do, too. I arch into the intimate touch of his lips, his tongue, into the taut pull of his teeth against my nipple. My fingers dive into his blond hair but he moves down my body, his lips on my belly, his tongue flickering into my belly button even as he unsnaps my jeans.

This jolts me and I grab his hand, lifting my head to look at him. “Are you sure we’re safe in here?”

Those beautiful blue eyes of his meet mine. “I promise, baby. No one will interrupt us.”

“You’re sure?”

“I promise and—”

“You never break a promise,” I say, stopping him there. “That’s a very marrying quality, by the way.”

His lips, those brutally sexy lips, curve. “Good to know. Trust me now, Carrie.”

Trust him.

There is a question in his eyes, a roughness to his voice. He proposed, but on the heels of so many opportunities for me to question him. This appeal to “trust him now” isn’t about sex in a limo. It’s about so much more. “I do trust you,” I say, and my voice isn’t a whisper, just a tremble of emotion spoken quite clearly.

He studies me for several long beats and then tugs my jeans down, taking the tiny strip of silk I’m wearing with them, with my shoes following. I barely have time to process just how vulnerable I am before Reid pulls his shirt over his head. “So you know you’re never naked alone, not again. Not ever.”

Emotion wells in my chest and he is already on top of me, kissing me, his cheek pressing to mine as he whispers, “I love you.”

“I love you, too,” I whisper back, only to have him slide down my body again.

The Warrior of Clan Kinkaid ( #3 Highland Warrior) Lily Blackwood

Author 
Lily Blackwood 

Publication Date 
31 July 2018 

Genre 
Historical Romance 



LOVE TAKES NO PRISONERS

Derryth MacClaren is on the run. Traveling under heavy guard, she has been sent from her castle home to avoid capture by the vicious nobleman known as the Wolf, who has vowed revenge against the Clan Kincaid, and any who support them. When a surprise attack leaves her vulnerable, Derryth ends up in the hands of an enemy warrior who claims her, with the Wolf’s blessing, as his prize. But her captor’s gentle words and touch seduce her heart—and body—completely...and when she discovers the tattoo on his arm that proves him to be the legendary, long-believed dead son of the murdered Laird of Kincaid, Derryth knows she must find a way to alter his fate—and her own.

Cull has no memory of his family or past—all he knows is the life of a warrior, trained to fight on behalf of the Scottish king. If he can help the king’s law officer of the North, the Wolf of Badenoch, defeat a rebellious faction of Highlanders, Cull will be met with untold riches beyond possessing beautiful, innocent Derryth. But now that she has informed him of who he really is—Cullen Braewick, the youngest son of the slain laird—he is torn. If Cull exacts revenge against the Wolf, who executed his father, he stands to lose the precious lass who he has come to love. What is he willing to sacrifice for Derryth to keep her safe...and in his arms?











4 Stars 
🌟⭐🌟⭐


I haven't read the first two installments of this series, and although I know that they would have been beneficial, I feel that this could be a standalone. There are enough references that give an idea of what happened to the Kincaids, except for the individual brother's story.

Cull has been trained to fight with the Scottish King since a young age when he was rescued from slavery. He is now a capable and respected commander of an army. 

Derryth has lived a fairly easy life, until now. When the Kincaids discover that there is an impending war upon them, Niall, the chief sends Derryth where she will be safe.

During their travel, Derryth and her guards are attacked by mercenaries Highlanders, working alongside Cull's army. He intervenes and mistakes Derryth for a peasant child. He becomes her protector and intends to set her and her bretherens free, once the war is over. Once Derryth is washed and cleaned, he realises that she is no child and fights his attraction for her. After all, he is disciplined and not much can stray him from his goal. The attraction is mutual, but they are on opposite camps. They become rather attached, but Cull has dreams and aspirations. Can he remain true to his King and win Derryth at the same time?

Cull is what I call a "gentle giant". He is tough when he has to be, but caring and considerate when he needs. Working for the evil Wolf isn't easy and even then, Cull weighs things up before making decisions. Considering, he has no recollections of his childhood and being trained by the Wolf could have made him a different man. Derryth is proper, but she plays the role of the peasant really well. She loves fiercely and is loyal to those she loves.

I really like the storyline and this well paced and crafted tale. There are lies. Deceipts. Betrayal. Jealousy. Revenge and greed. Cull and Derryth make some tough decisions. They have a hard time, but when they are together all is well in their world. Cull's true identity doesn't come as a complete surprise, but the subsequent results are well thought through. Once again, love prevails and good overcomes evil. A cunning and intriguing read indeed. 

I received an eARC from Netgalley and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Kiss of a Duke (#2 12 Dukes of Christmas) Erica Ridley



Author 
Erica Ridley 

Publication Date 
6 November 2018 

Genre 
Historical Romance 




Just one more kiss… (Milady, it’s cold outside)

Lady chemist Penelope Mitchell took England by storm with Duke, a perfume for men that has women swooning at their feet. To prove the same aphrodisiacal potency of her upcoming version for ladies, the new perfume must cause a rake to fall in love with her in ten days. And she has just the man in mind…

Sexy pleasure-seeker Nicholas Pringle—known as “Saint Nick” for his wicked ways—wants to end the absurd cologne that has every young buck believing himself a ladies’ man. How hard can it be to charm a spinster into changing her mind? But when Penelope does the charming, this rakish scoundrel must decide between losing the war... or losing his heart.

The 12 Dukes of Christmas is a laugh-out-loud historical romance series of heartwarming Regency romps nestled in a picturesque snow-covered village. After all, nothing heats up a winter night quite like finding oneself in the arms of a duke!














3 Stars
⭐🌟⭐

Life in the remote snow covered village called Christmas is full of fun and surprises. The Christmas spirit amongst the friendly villagers is quite entertaining.

Nicholas, known as "St Nick" lives up to his name of being London's famous rake, but he has a secret which could ruin his carefully portrayed reputation.

Penelope is a Scientist who has recently developed "Duke", a perfume for men, which has all of London gents wearing said perfume.

Nick isn't impressed by the effect of "Duke" for to him it's cheating. He didn't need such a scent to attract the opposite sex and earn his reputation. He intends to put a stop to the production. He has to convince Penelope, somehow! Little does he know that she has other plans to equal the playing field for women. Who better to be the "guinea pig" than St Nick himself? Being a sworn bachelor, he is confused by his new habits and alien feelings. He isn't the only one though. Has Penelope fallen into her own trap? Will Nick forgive her once he learns the truth?

I really like the real Nick. He shows a side that condradicts his reputation. The interactions between him and Penelope are sometimes sweet and sometimes hilarious. It's a well woven romance with just a touch of angst. It's a light and easy read with a worthy conclusion. 

Arc received from Netgalley and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Accidentally in Love with the Pilot by Terri Anne Stanley



Author 
Terri Anne Stanley

Publication Date
13 September 2018 

Genre 
Contemporary Romance 



Fighter pilot Ben Rutledge loves his solitude. Which means spending a month of leave in overcrowded, over-glitzy Las Vegas isn’t up his alley, especially after his friend ditches him. His first inclination is to bow out, and quickly. Instead, he finds himself sharing drinks—and a whole lot more—with a sexy woman celebrating her birthday. After all, it’s just one night, and he can go back to his quiet life tomorrow.

Megan Shuttlekrump doesn’t have time for a boyfriend, much less a husband. But a night of celebratory drinks with a handsome stranger ends with a ring on her finger—and no memory of how it got there. Her new “husband” is over the top hot, but he’ll be out of her life once his leave is over. As long as they can find out which of the thousand or so chapels in Vegas married them…
 










3 Stars 
🌟⭐🌟

Accidentally In love With A Pilot is a light and easy to read story about a chance meeting and the subsequent outcome.

Ben is a fighter pilot who is on leave for a month. He is shy and avoids being in the limelight.

Megan is in the family entertainment business. She organises the events amongst a myriad of other business and family day to day occurrences. 

There is a change of plans in Ben's organised life and he is suddenly in limbo. He is volunteered to deliver a birthday cake on behalf of a friend and this is where he meets Megan. Whilst having drinks at the bar, they exchange stories and find that they both have abandonment issues. What happens next is a mystery as when they wake up the next day, they have little to no recollections of the night before. The obvious rings on their fingers point to one conclusion. Megan loves her job and her family. Being tied to anyone is the last thing on Ben's mind. Can they resolve this most unexpected turn of events? If so, how?

Despite his shyness, Ben is a gentle and lovable person. He handles the situation wonderfully well, considering there might be other complications. Megan means well, but her constant denial and the need to please her family wears a little thin. It's not an unusual concept, but it's a fairly good story. Despite the family demands, their predicament and their jobs, Ben and Megan develop a good relationship. Even though they deny their true feelings during their time together, they have a happy ending.

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

Run to You (#1 Standalone 100 Series) Lara Adrian - Cover Reveal



COVER REVEAL for Lara Adrian's upcoming contemporary romance, RUN TO YOU!!

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian’s sizzling, suspenseful 100 Series continues with RUN TO YOU, a scorching new standalone contemporary bodyguard romance featuring friends of billionaire Dominic Baine and his artist fiancee Avery Ross.

Combat veteran Gabriel Noble survived the war overseas, but the stoic Baine International security specialist is in for the fight of his life when he's tasked with bodyguarding beautiful lingerie designer Evelyn Beckham.




Synopsis


Once a celebrated model, Evelyn Beckham dominated the fashion runways of New York, Paris, and Milan. But life under the lights nearly destroyed her, and at the height of her career she walked away from it all. Now, five years later, Eve’s built a new life at the helm of Manhattan’s premier high-end lingerie boutique, L’opale. Chosen to design the bridal ensemble for billionaire Dominic Baine’s fiancΓ©e, Avery Ross, it seems Eve’s stars have finally realigned—until her return to the spotlight thrusts her into the crosshairs of a danger that’s been watching from the shadows, waiting for the chance to strike.

Gabriel Noble didn’t go to war to become a hero, but when he returned from the battlefield in Afghanistan it was with a chest full of medals and a broken body filled with shrapnel. Losing his leg derailed more than Gabe’s career, and when no one else was willing to take a chance on him, Baine International put him on their security team. Now, Gabe would do anything for Dominic Baine—including keeping a covert, protective eye on beautiful Evelyn Beckham as a personal favor to his boss and friend. But keeping Eve safe means keeping her close, and soon the lines between duty and desire begin to blur into a consuming passion too powerful to be denied. With Eve’s life in escalating peril and her faith in him certain to shatter, Gabe will have to risk everything to protect her while facing the most intense fight of his life . . . the battle for Eve’s heart.
