Forbidden Valentine Cover

Synopsis: Ever wondered if Ransom Scott would get his happily ever after? Find out February 16th!

It started with a drink.

It turned into a promise.

Ransom Scott lost his heart the day the woman he loved chose another man. Or so he thought. Estranged from his brother, distancing himself from the world, he’s been drowning his sorrows in cheap booze and women…determined to forget.

His world is falling apart, until a beautiful woman decides to take a chance on him.

Dani Deviche is as bewitching as she is innocent. Full of youth and vitality, she captivates him. Challenges him. She’s everything Ransom never thought to look for in the opposite sex, and he can’t get enough.

When a promise of friendship turns into something more, can Ransom fulfill his end of the bargain, or will a secret from Dani’s past destroy his last chance at happiness?

Author’s Note This book was written as a compliment to the Forbidden Trilogy. However, it can be read as a standalone.

FORBIDDEN VALENTINE

EXCERPT

Dani couldn’t catch her breath. Ransom was insatiable, devouring her mouth like a man starved. She curled her arms around his neck, throwing herself into his dark kiss, exhilarated by his need for her, and hers for him.

Of the few boyfriends she’d had, none had affected her like this man—a near stranger. Someone who was, as far as she could tell, damaged. And not an average, run-of-the-mill kind of damage that nearly everyone in the world experienced.

This was soul-deep. His heart hadn’t just broken. It’d been shattered. And it was obvious to her that he was desperately searching for something to numb the pain. Help him forget. He’d chosen booze, and because of her own past demons, she hated it. Which was why, when he’d confessed his affliction, she’d drawn a line, putting an end to his self-abuse.

Her need to help, to fix, was in full-effect. Her ex always said it was her worst quality. Told her on numerous occasions that she was a fool for caring so much. That it would be her downfall.

Maybe she was and maybe it would be, but at least she would know that, in whatever small way, she’d helped.

And even if Ransom didn’t know it yet, he needed her.

But maybe not in the capacity he was currently aiming for.

As much as Dani loved the feel of his mouth on hers, his tongue dipping and diving into every unchecked corner, stoking a fire inside that threatened to blaze out of control, she knew if she allowed this to continue, she’d be taking advantage.

“Ransom.” With regret, she broke the sensational kiss, determined to end this before it went too far, but Ransom only detoured, licking and nibbling a path down the side of her neck that made her shiver.

“You taste so good,” he murmured against her heated skin. “So sweet. And you smell like heaven.”

Obsession, actually. She’d picked up a bottle on clearance following the holidays…What the hell was she going on about? She needed to put an end to this madness before it got out of control. And with the way her body was responding to his every touch and caress, that moment was fast approaching.

Tunneling her fingers through his hair, Dani formed a tight grip, intending to pull him away, only to hold him closer as his warm, wet mouth found the top of her breast. The way he lavished her body with attention, feasting on every inch of her flesh with an almost feral passion, was addictive. Dani had never had a man react to her that way. It was as if he couldn’t get enough. His hands gripped her hard, one around her hip, the other her right butt cheek. His mouth skated across her cleavage, worshiping her as he forged a path toward her hardened nipples. And his body—hard in all the right places—pinned her in place, demanding fealty that she was tempted to give.

Her back hit a wall, rattling a painting, and his knee wedged between her thighs. Heat seared her, clenching her core, and Dani moaned. As his hand left the curve of her ass and slipped around her thigh, her head began to lighten, her thoughts growing foggy.

The only noise between them was that of heavy breathing and the soft lapping of his tongue. When she felt his fingers pass over the top of her thigh and sweep up the center, painting a vivid picture of what he planned to do to her, she clenched her eyes shut and hated herself for what she was about to do.

URBAN FANTASY BOOK REVIEW- RAISING CAIN BY KELLI IRELAND


Book Description
Publication Date: April 7, 2015
“If you love reading quirky humor, steamy scenes, and strong female characters, you’re going to love reading Kelli Ireland! Ireland is a gifted storyteller who keeps readers enthralled with her unique voice and clever writing. I love her!”
New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione

Hiding places are scarce when both Heaven and Hell intend to find you.

Dani Fayel’s backbreaking job as a stable hand at The Freaks’ Fair isn’t glamorous, but for someone looking to keep to the shadows? It’s perfect. Neither paranormal freaks nor human norms ever notice her. But when Dani is forced to either let a child die in order to maintain her anonymity or choose to save him and risk being discovered, she finds herself unwillingly thrust into the spotlight.

Cain, Hell’s premier assassin and a predatory incubus, is close to fulfilling his final contract and earning his freedom. Hired by the Archangel of Death to find his daughter, Cain follows her trail to the Fair. He works undercover, certain his mark is inside one of the portable canopies or traveling cages. Dead or alive, she equals his ticket to freedom.

When Cain’s objective is divulged, Dani realizes she can’t outrun her destiny. As the fabled Key—the one soul with absolute free will who is tied to the three realms of Heaven, Earth and Hell—only she is capable of opening the gates for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Whoever frees the Horsemen allegedly commands them. Now both Heaven and Hell are vying for her allegiance, and there are no limits as to how dirty they’ll fight to obtain it. With Hell raining indiscriminate chaos as Heaven maneuvers its players around her, Dani realizes her would-be assassin may be the only man capable of helping her survive.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

RAISING CAIN is a great start to this urban fantasy. The characters and story line are well-developed. Dani has been in foster homes since she was eight years old. She was kicked out of the foster home when she was 23 years old. She has been with the Freak’s Fair since. Now Demons are coming after her, for she is The Key. I loved this book and Dani’s struggle with the knowledge that she is The Key.  Now she has to try to stay alive until she claims what side she is on Team Sheol, or Team Malkuth. She has to choose freely to maintain the balance of choice and the free will of mankind. I recommend this book to everyone and cannot wait until the next book to see what happens. I give RAISING CAIN 5/5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW FOR “ICED” BY KAREN MARIE MONING

Product DetailsThis is a spinoff of the FEVER series, featuring DANI O’MALLEY. She has rare talents and possess the al powerful SWORD OF LIGHT. This is set 1 year after the Wall Crash. Now the Fae are free to hunt Us. Dani helps to keep the Fae at bay, and to give us a fighting chance. She also stay away from her ex-best friend MacKayla Lane, who wants her dead, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force.

They are after the sword and they will stop at nothing to get it. Ryodan asks for Dani’s help when his night club and parts of Dublin is blanketed by hoarfrost.  She has to figure out who or what is doing this to her beloved Dublin before everyone she loves and everything is ICED.

This was a really good book, and I can not wait for her next one.  Some people might have an issue with one of the characters having an attraction to Dani an he is much older than Dani.  At this point that is all it is, and I believe as a the story progresses the age difference really wont matter. We have had books with Fae and Human relationships with larger age gaps and we didn’t care. So as Dani ages and the other character doesn’t, the gap will close. That is my belief,  what the author is going for.

I give this a 5/ 5 stars. For a great story.

the next book will be:Product DetailsJULY 22, 2014.
