COVER REVEAL: The Raven by Sylvain Reynard

The Raven 
by Sylvain Reynard
 
Blurb: 
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel Series comes a dark, sensual tale of romance in a city shrouded in mystery…
Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery restoring fine works of 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 semi-conscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attacker’s 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. She returns to the Uffizi, but no one recognizes her and more disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of the events leading up to her disappearance, Raven also 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 baffled police force identifies her as its prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth about her disappearance. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets…

About the Author
I’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.
I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.
I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.

Silvia Day hasn’t set a release date yet, but she said something very important:

“The first 2 ½ books were Eva’s story. By the midpoint of Entwined with You, Eva has confronted the reality of Gideon’s sacrifice, her skeletons are out of the closet, and she’s faced some hard truths about her parents. Now it’s Gideon’s turn. He really needed Eva to be strong in order for him to get his life together. The last 2 ½ books are Gideon’s story.”

Book Review: Happenstance by Jamie McGuire

Happenstance

532531489pizapw1403557288

#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin “Alder” Alderman and Erin “Sonny” Masterson are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Easter isn’t–and they never let her forget it. Alder has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.

Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Easter’s feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Easter does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings … both for his future, and for her.

A shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, and Easter’s life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything she thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.

Wow, I’m blown away by this book!  You know when a book is so good you have nothing to say because it’s just that good?  That’s how I feel about Happenstance.  I thought this book was beautifully written.  Yes, it’s a novella and yes, it’s short but it was sweet and to the point.

I fell in love Erin Easter.  Her story gave me the feels like no other.  It’s one that will stay with me for a very long time.  Her life may not be perfect but I love how she never gave up.  If I was to trade places with her for a day, I’m not sure if I can handle all that life has thrown at her.  She’s such a strong individual.

I enjoyed getting to know Weston.  His courage to stand up and protect Erin was very heartwarming.  I also enjoyed seeing their friendship blossom into something more.

The twist in the book, I thought that was nicely done.

I highly recommend this book.  Jamie McGuire is a favorite author of mine and I absolutely love all of her books.  She’s exceptionally gifted in writing and I’m looking forward to reading more about Erin and Weston and see what’s in store for them.

Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons #1) by Christina Lauren

SYPNOSIS

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away

After this Night (Seductive Nights #2)

SYPNOSIS

Their world was passion, pleasure and secrets.

Far too many secrets. But Clay Nichols can’t get Julia Bell out of his mind. He’s so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can’t focus on work or business. Only her. And she’s pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though–she’s trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that’s been chasing her for months now, thanks to the criminal world her ex dragged her into. If only she can get out of this mess, then maybe she can invite the man who ignites her back in her life, so she can have him–heart, mind and body.

He won’t take less than all of her, and the full truth too. When he runs into her again at her sister’s wedding, they have a second chance but she’ll have to let him all the way in. And they’ll learn just how much more there is to the intense sexual chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night…

The Last Good Knight: An Original Sinners novella told in five parts

532531489pizapw1403557288

Part I: Scars and Stripes

It’s lust at first sight when Mistress Nora encounters a sexy newcomer to The 8th Circle. She’s happy for the distraction, since she left her lover, Søren, but her session with Lance is cut short when her boss, Kingsley Edge, reveals they’re all in danger….

Part II: Sore Spots

With a potential stalker on the loose, Kingsley hires Lance as Nora’s bodyguard, but stipulates no sex while he’s on duty. Frustrated by the ex-SEAL’s noble chivalry, Nora is driven to seek release with the one man she’s trying to forget….

Part III: The Games Destiny Plays

Shocked to see Nora’s bruises, Lance is furious that she put herself in danger and demands to know where she got them. As Nora confesses her true nature, she’s equally shocked to learn that Lance has some secrets of his own, drawing them together despite Kingsley’s orders…

Part IV: Fit to Be Tied

With her feelings for Lance warring with her recent encounter with Søren, Nora returns to Lance’s bed and finds herself toying with the idea of…toying with him on a permanent basis. But after she gets a glimpse into his personal angst, Nora realizes she has the power to rescue this white knight…

Part V: The Last Good Night

Now that the perpetrator has been apprehended, Nora sadly acknowledges she doesn’t need a bodyguard anymore. She adores Lance and wants to keep him but is faced with a dilemma—if she uses her connections to help Lance, she’ll have to give him up forever…

5 kinky stars

Tiffany Reisz’s books are the top of any BDSM book I’ve ever read, and this isn’t the exception. This book is pure kink from beginning to end, but I wouldn’t expect less from a story of Nora Sutherlin.

Mistress Nora is The Queen of the Underground and she does what and who she wants.

“She wore black thigh-high boots decorated with dozen silver buckles, a red leather skirt, red corset, black jacket and a black top hat complete with red band”

In this story, Nora is enjoying her life as a dominatrix, especially when she meets Lance, a hot marine who is willing to be all she wants him to be, and all she doesn’t even know she wants or needs.

“But I do see a lady in this room, the most beautiful lady I’ve seen in a long time. She’s strong, smart and completely comfortable with who and what she is”

The connection between them is evident since the moment they met, and not only in the dungeon, but in every other way. He accepts what she is, what she does and all her needs. He wants to protect her and be with her forever, but the odds aren’t in their side.

10171847_10152966929006490_8079100733501703197_n

There was this part I loved at the end of the book, when Nora and Lance were together, there was complete devotion to each other.

Of course, Nora is still affected by Søren, even though she finds out what she really wants for her life, she denies it anyway because Søren is still a big part of her life and he is always in her thoughts and affects all her decisions. They still have each other, and nobody knows Nora better than Søren, and for better or worse, he gives her the answers she needed to help Lance. I adored every part of the book with Søren, when she goes looking for him, when he knew what was going on in her mind, when they argued, they are all sign of their love to each other.

“Mine,” Søren said. “You are mine. That’s who you are”

1897935_10152966943466490_2460767479358782889_n

Nora’s sense of humor isn’t missing in this book, she and her smart mouth cracked me up with every kinky joke, most of all if it’s full of irony.

What I liked the most of every part:

Part 1: The new lover of Nora is HOT and is the best male submissive ever!!

“I’m going to beat the shit out of you tonight and fuck you. And then probably fuck you again, and you call me a lady?”

Part 2: What she likes the most of Lance reminds her of Søren

“Søren alone has the same air of ‘this is me, take it or leave it’ that she’d seen in Lance”

Part 3: Nora can’t forget about Søren and I don’t think she will ever forget about him. The way he knows her and gets her naked in every level is perfection and true love.

“Tonight she needed to be his, needed to submit, needed to be the one on her knees”

Part 4: One of the things I love so much about Nora is that while she loves Søren endlessly, she can also love other men, and she fell for Lance so fast and hard.

“You’re mine today”

Part 5: Every second Nora and Lance spent together.

“My property. My possession. My slave and servant. My knight and my protector.”

Tiffany Reisz lives with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

If she couldn’t write, she would die.
