Review: Glamour: Contemporary Fairytale Retellings - In A Stranger's Bed by Sophie Jordan

In A Stranger’s Bed is a modern retelling of Goldilocks with a very naughty twist.

Thea finds herself lost and alone in the highlands of Scotland after being accidentally left behind by her tour bus. Caught up in a torrential downpour, she comes across a lone house at the top of a hill. And in true Goldilocks fashion, Thea enters the empty house and quickly makes herself at home.

This story may be short, but Sophie Jordan does not cut corners. We get steam, the pit in your stomach moments, romance, and the sexy—a whole lot of sexy. Holy hotness this was sexy. Our bear equivalent in this story is Niall, a gruff, hot, dirty talking, Scottish sheep farmer whose peaceful solitude is shattered by the intruding Thea. And his hot factor does not go unnoticed.

I loved reading this reimagining. Niall and Thea are good for each other. He awakens a side of her she never knew existed, and likewise she ignites a part of him he thought long gone. Topping the many things I really liked, was the way Ms. Jordan interwove snippets from the classic tale, drawing the connection to her telling. Something so simple, but it brought it all together.

“Face to face with the bear, Goldilocks had never seen so fierce a creature.
His hungry eyes, his snapping teeth, his dark pelt…”

Excerpt Reveal: Easy Magic (Boudreaux Series #5) by Kristen Proby


EM Banner 2

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes the next sexy and captivating standalone title in the Boudreaux Series, EASY MAGIC. Take a trip to the Big Easy and fall in love with Beau and Mallory’s passionate story on April 4, 2017 in this upcoming contemporary romance. Check out the excerpt below and preorder your copy today!


The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Family. Responsibility. Stability. 


As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him.

If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting.

Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are.

When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day.

Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

EM Teaser 1

I turn to look at him and he’s leaning against the door jamb, watching me with lust written all over his face. I don’t have to be psychic to see it. He wants me. He slowly pushes away from the door and moves toward me, his shoulders broad in the white button down shirt, his arms hard where the shirt is rolled to his elbows. His jaw tightens as he gets closer, towering over me because he’s so damn tall, but I’m not afraid of him in the least. He doesn’t say a word as he lifts his hand to cup my cheek, his thumb brushing under my eye. I wrap my hand around his wrist and lean into his touch, soaking up his warmth. God, I’ve missed being touched. Being touch by Beau is like being touched for the first time in my life, and I never want him to stop. He lowers his lips to mine, brushes them lightly, nibbles the corner, and then sinks in for the kiss of my life. He gently urges my mouth open, and licks my lips, and devours me. His hand dives into my hair, and the wall is suddenly at my back as he continues to explore me in ways I didn’t even know existed. He braces his free hand on the wall above my head, and I fist my hands in his shirt at his sides, holding on for dear life. Finally, he pulls back, breathing hard, his eyes bright and dilated. And in the moment, I know. His touch is safe. I can trust it. Him. I’m not bombarded with someone else’s emotions, and I am free to simply feel my own while being intimate with him. “So that’s what all the hoopla’s about.” He smirks, and I realize I spoke aloud again, but I’m not embarrassed. Not in the least. He takes a deep breath and drags his knuckles down my cheek. “I want to keep you here all night,” he murmurs before kissing my forehead. “So I’d better take you home.” I smile. He could talk me into staying. But he’s not. And I’ll be damned if that doesn’t make me like him even more.

New Release & Excerpt: Vanek (Demons After Dark #1) by Laurie Olerich

Introducing Demons after Dark, a Primani World crossover series. It's hot paranormal romance featuring antiheroes who will make you laugh, cry, and swoon. Known only as Trinity demons, this band of brothers was stripped of their powers and violently exiled from Hell. Wrongly accused of an unthinkable crime, they’re left to survive with no memories and no weapons while a secret society quietly plots Lucifer’s demise. The new series begins with Dylan and Vanek in the book Vanek.

Thanks to her family’s curse, Dylan has been promised to a sadistic soul broker and she’s desperate to escape a terrifying future. After an impulsive act leads her to Morningstar Sanitarium, she’s inexplicably drawn to the sad and mysterious Vanek, but the connection is broken when they escape. Forced into hiding, Dylan turns to Expat Security for protection. Stunned to find Vanek working there, she almost walks away. Another demon is the last thing she needs in her life.

Formerly one of Hell’s most renowned Painkillers, Vanek is horrified with being human until he discovers he’s been thrown into the body of a badass mercenary with a definite kinky streak. Wondering how he got so lucky, he jumps into his new role at Trinity’s Op Center--Expat Security. When Dylan’s soul broker recognizes him as one of the Trinity demons, he knows they’ve got to take her case. As his attraction to her grows, so does the conspiracy that landed him in Brooklyn.

Is Vanek’s past the key to saving his future--and hers?

Clearing her throat, Dylan strove for a seductive, worldly tone. “They say anticipation is a powerful aphrodisiac. Thoughts?”
She watched his lean fingers casually grip the fork and spear a pea. Sucking it off of the tines, he chewed and swallowed. With fork poised over a piece of penne, he angled partway across the table, a challenging gleam in his eyes. “Going to tease me, angel?”
She blushed again but doubled down. “And if I said yes?”
He didn’t answer right away. He chewed thoughtfully and drained his wine. Leaning back in the chair, he tapped his fingers on the table for a few seconds before finally saying, “When it comes to sex, I live by one rule and only one rule. No restraint. Period.” His eyes darkened on her startled expression. He leaned farther across the table, capturing her hand and nibbling along the inside of her wrist. Her arm fairly vibrated with the sensation of his hot mouth on her skin, his tongue flicking along her palm. Her clit pulsed in anticipation of that tongue. “Can you do that, Dylan? Can you let yourself go and do whatever feels good? No matter how dark? No matter how animal?”
