Between a Vamp and a Hard Place (Midnight Liaisons #5) by Jessica Sims

 Between a Vamp and a Hard Place is my first time reading Jessica Sims. In all honesty, I didn’t know that this was the fifth book in an existing series.  Having said that, not having read the previous books did not hinder my reading experience at all.

Two roommates (and business partners) are in Venice to hopefully reap the rewards of an estate sale. Finding great antiques and selling them online is a job for Lindsey Hughes as well as a calling. It’s when she stumbles upon a 600 year old vampire that things take a turn for the unexpected and otherworldly.

So… the down and dirty. I had a hard time believing reactions and acceptance while reading. It was a bit too much of insta-everything. Time to accept things and move on does happen, it just comes off somewhat immature and unrealistic at times. Having said that, I was totally invested ‘til the end. I wanted to know what would happen and by whom. I needed closure to the mystery as well. I totally got it and I’m glad I kept reading until the end.

I dunno guys… I didn’t LOVE it, but it wasn’t a bad read either. I know authors hate a wishy-washy review and I hate that mine is; but what can I say other than  my honest thoughts? I am sure Midnight Liaisons has a fan base and that they will love it.

In the wickedly funny spirit of bestselling authors Kerrelyn Sparks and Molly Harper, this sexy paranormal romance features an estate broker and a 600-year-old vampire out for revenge.

Lindsey Hughes loves antiques and couldn’t be happier to make a living in the estate sale business. But when her assistant accidentally buys an entire estate without her approval, Lindsey is forced to clean up the mess herself.

Lindsey travels to the newly purchased, age-old house in Venice, Italy, and soon discovers more than she (never) bargained for. While digging through the hoarder’s trove that fills every floor, she finds a secret staircase behind a wall that leads to a strange coffin…with an even stranger inhabitant.

Vampire Rand FitzWulf has been in his coffin for 600 years. But now that he’s awake, he’s ravenous, and there’s a delicious-smelling woman with a rare blood type in his basement. Luckily, Lindsey has more to offer than blood: she agrees to travel throughout Europe with Rand to help him get revenge on the one who turned him. But as the unlikely pair grows closer, will the billionaire vampire be overtaken by his thirst for blood—or his thirst for love?

Christian by D.B. Reynolds

The sexy French vamp is coming to the south! Christian Duvall, once a child of the enemy, is on his own and making moves to become a Lord. Along with a child of his own, he will challenge the cowardly Anthony and hopefully make an alliance with Raphael.

Natalie is a financial whiz, working to discover and understand past financial schemes she is taken aback when the enigmatic Christian walks in the door. An instant attraction and shared goal of removing Anthony from power will help bind these two together in the most delicious of ways.

Along with getting to see and interact with almost all of our couples in the Vampires in America series, we get an ominous look into the next book to come.

Captivating and brimming with brilliance, Christian is yet another defining addition to the ever-evolving world of Vampires in America created by D.B. Reynolds.

5 Powerful Sexy French stars!

Texas . . . the heart of a territory that stretches from the golden deserts of New Mexico to the turquoise shores of the Florida Keys. It’s big, it’s rich, and it’s the next battleground for some of the most dangerous vampires in the world.

Christian Duvall . . . charismatic and powerful, and determined to claim the South as his own. But with old enemies and new fighting to stop him, victory suddenly takes on a brutal, and far more treacherous, edge. Because what one of his enemies wants more than anything else already belongs to Christian . . . and her name is Natalie.

Natalie Vivant Gaudet . . . brilliant and lovely, a strong Southern woman who can unravel the most intricate financial schemes designed to swindle and steal. She loves her complex job and the simplicity of her life. And then she meets Christian. He’s beautiful, he’s complicated, and she’ll fight to keep him alive.

With allies trying to kill him, and enemies readying a horde of zombie vampires to roll over all of Texas, it will take every shred of Christian’s power and Natalie’s determination to win this war and give North America a brand new Lord of the South.

Searing Ecstasy by Setta Jay Blog Tour ~T's Review~

Setta Jay's Guardians of the Realms series returns with the long-awaited and much-anticipated story of Drake in Searing Ecstasy

Drake, the powerful dragon and leader of the Guardians, has spent his long life protecting all inhabitants of the four Realms, but fails to save the one who matters most. His mate. In the month since finding her feral, he’s been slowly losing control of his beast and soon he fears the dragon will reign free unleashing it’s fury upon the Realms.

Delia has changed. No longer a carefree young woman, she is now a nightmare in the making. After her abduction and torture she unwillingly houses two beasts and more power than she can ever contain on her own. She can never be released. Nor can she have the male who gives her any semblance of sanity in her new world, the one she craves more than her own freedom.

With unknown enemies on the horizon and yet another God awakened will they lose themselves in the madness of an impossible mating? Or will they come together in searing ecstasy, bonding them in a way that sets them both free?

Warning: Sexually explicit content (beds actually get burned down, people) and alpha males and females with bad language.

What an amazing read! Truly, the Guardians of the Realms series has hit its stride. I was absolutely glued to the pages. Its intense, creative, and magnetic coupling of Delia and Drake is one of the best duos thus far in the series. 

Author Setta Jay is developing a family of characters in her Guardians world that has the potential to become one of the best PNR series around. The more I get into the series the more I want to know. Adding in the secondary characters paralleling the main couple is a fantastic way of keeping up with the “fam” and I love it!

Book number seven has just blown its predecessors out of the water. Mighty dragons, mystical mist, and sultry nights combine into one epic read. Searing Ecstasy is a dark, uplifting, and erotic read and, quite frankly, one of Jay’s best works to date.

Oh and P.S. the last paragraph…. O.M.G!! Book eight cannot get here soon enough!

His Contract by Rebecca Grace Allen

Lawyers know when to play by the rules…and when to break them.
Harvard law professor Jack Archer once balanced his professional life with the private world of dominance, surrender, and trust he shared with his wife. Since cancer stole her a year ago, finding love again—her final wish for him—is the furthest thing from his mind. From his empty house to the classroom, grief follows his every move. Until he meets a young woman with shadows in her eyes even darker than his own.
Once a shining star at law school, Lilly Sterling's dreams died when the Dom she trusted left her heartbroken and lost. She's starting fresh in a new city as a paralegal, but meeting Jack reawakens all her old demons—and her lingering desires.
Jack offers to become Lilly's mentor for both the courtroom and the playroom, but tells himself it's not a relationship. Their carefully worded contract guarantees that. But when their trial agreement starts heating up, both Jack and Lilly must decide what will tip the scales: the letter of the law…or love?
Warning: All rise for a book that contains a wounded submissive and a Dominant who wants to retrain her while retaining control of his heart. Discovery phase may involve spankings, bondage, edging, and blindfolds. Is it hot? You be the judge.

Who's ready for The Score?

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over

Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

Rebound Remedy by Christine d'Abo

Absolutely adorable! The good guy has finally had it! Cole is standing in an airport watching his boyfriend of six months being proposed to. The worst part of all is It’s nothing new. Oh and did I mention its almost Christmas?

Bartender Owen sees people drowning their miseries in booze all the time, but when he sees one of his regulars looking so unhappy, he takes it upon himself to try and remedy it.

What happens next is that two people really connect. Become friends and, albeit it unsure, combustible lovers. With the holiday’s fast approaching, Rebound Remedy is a sweet, adventurous and uplifting story of the good guy not finishing last for once.

Total stocking stuffer read!

The last thing Cole expects to get for the holidays is dumped. But there he is, in the airport on his way to Banff for a romantic getaway, helplessly watching as his boyfriend’s ex declares undying love, proposes—and is accepted. With a few weeks to go until Christmas, Cole’s mood dives from jolly to jaded. But instead of sitting at home alone and feeling sorry for himself, he goes to his favorite bar, McGregor’s, for a pint and some company.

The moment Owen McGregor sets eyes on Cole, he knows there’s something wrong. So he takes it upon himself to ensure that Cole has a happy holiday: twelve outings for the twelve days before Christmas. Even if he can’t quite think up twelve activities that don’t involve getting the forlorn hunk into his bed.

With each outing they take together, Cole realizes that the love he thought he’d shared with his ex was less than perfect. And that Owen might prove to be more than just his rebound remedy.

A message from Christine d'Abo

Hello, my name is Christine d’Abo! Thank you so much for having me here on the blog today. I’m very honored to have been asked to participate in the 2015 Riptide Holiday charity anthology. The holidays are the perfect time to not only give back to our community, but to raise awareness of the struggles that some of our youth endure.

When these teens should be enjoying candy, presents, movies and fun, they’re struggling with their families, friends and their self-images. No one should feel anything but love and support this time of year.

This is my small way of helping out, of paying it forward. I want to challenge each of you to do something this holiday season to pay it forward. Volunteer at a local food bank, soup kitchen or other community support organization. Buy a stranger a coffee. Pay for the meal of a young family. Give someone a hug.

Every small act of kindness makes the world a better place.

I wish you all the best this holiday season.
