SOR - Spanish Flame by Patricia Bates

Spanish Flame by Patricia Bates

Can an ex-con and a Spanish noblewoman find love? Ex-convict, Adam Butler, is a man hardened by betrayal and violence. When he lands in Spain, his only intention is to find a paying job so he can buy his way further west, far away from the memories of his past. Wealthy and beautiful Evangelina Ortega yearns for the ability to marry for love even as her father is forcing her to wed a man she's never met. When she arrives at her betrothed's estate, she meets Adam Butler, a man with secrets and a checkered past. Can the Spanish lady and the ex-con find happiness or will their love be destroyed by her father's determination to regain the family honor?

Knowing Destiny by Tamsin Baker


Chase, a golden eagle shifter, is destined to be the leader of his flock, the shifters of the air. But he has a few problems. He’s not ready for the responsibility, he isn’t sure who he wants as his mate and there’s the little issue of an unsolved killing to sort out.

Ben is also a golden eagle shifter, Chase’s best friend and three time lover. He wants to be his best friend’s mate, but can he be honest about his feelings?

Ariana is a young peregrine falcon shifter who has loved Chase for years. But why would he want her when he can have anyone he wants?

Three shifters, three separate problems, all fighting to find out who they are and how they can love each other.

Ben showered and dressed quickly. What was he going to say?
“You’re going to be honest, just once, and then forget about it.”
Ben closed up his house and made his way to Chase’s place. He couldn’t live like this anymore, on tenterhooks every day, wondering what Chase was thinking, how he was feeling. Wanting to tel…

Mated Forever by Michaela Rhua

Consequences of Life.
Today I want to talk about one of the minor characters in my book Mated Forever.
Norah is the mother of Jorie. She is a widow, whose husband was an abusive drunk. For Norah, her life with him was as a consequence of her choices when she was younger. She has had to live with the choices she made and the life that was thrust upon her. Only now, her daughter Jorie faces difficult choices of her own that will have consequences. What does this mother do? Does she advise her to tread along the safe, conservative road or does she tell her to go for the more riskier route?
I will say nothing more but I'll leave you with the blurb and a quick taste!

Mated Forever by Michaela Rhua

Things That Make Me Go, Hum?

You wouldn’t believe some of the things I come across while doing research for the stories I’m writing. I stumble across crazy things I’m not looking for. Sometimes they make me chuckle, scratch my head and ponder, and sometimes they make me say, “Hum?”

Mid Week Tease - To The Rescue

Welcome! And thanks to author Sandra Bunino for starting and organizing this weekly event. This week I'm going to get naughty with Tied Up In Wonderland. Part of the Naughty Fairy Tale Line from Evernight Publishing.

Be Warned: BDSM, sex toys, public exhibition, anal sex.

Hey, Derik. This is Allison. Sorry to bother you, but I kind of need your help. I figured you’d be up, and I know its storming. Anyway, my car won’t start and I’m stuck in the parking lot at SU.

I pressed send. I tapped my fingers on my still wet thighs, and watched the rain distort the night through the front windshield of my car.
When I heard the ping on my phone, a sense of relief began to ease through me. Derik was up.

Allison. Which SU parking lot are you in?

I quickly typed my reply.

The south lot. The one closer to the dorms.

Derik was fast in his next reply.

I’m on my way. Stay inside your car, the storm is a nasty one. Lock your doors. I’ll be there as fast as I can.
I didn’t wait long. Derik was a man of h…
