Audiobook Review & Giveaway - Nice and Naughty by Jayne Rylon

Yeah, it is finally here!! One of my favorite naughty authors has been working on making one of her novellas into an audiobook!!! I was living vicariously through her with this project, as she asked my advice on narrators. I am one of the few audio-bibliophiles she knows, which makes me a pseudo expert! I promise not to let that go to my head, much!

It was such hard work listening to all those smexy male voices. Yummy gravely growls and deep baritones. Sigh, it was such a chore! In the end she picked a delicious narrator who really brings the story to life, while setting panties on fire!!

A thrill seeker at heart, Alexa Jones has learned to contain her adrenaline rushes to intense boardroom negotiations after a disastrous lesson in heartache. But when she cracks, and indulges in a high-octane encounter on the hood of her sports car, she becomes involved in more than a simple affair. Can one man
appease Alexa’s nice and naughty sides?

Justin Winston got more than he bargained for on his refreshing summer drive, but now he’s entangled the woman of his dreams in a web of murder and corporate espionage. That’s not the way to convince her scarred heart to trust him. He needs assistance from someone practical, controlled… safe. Luckily, he knows just the man to call on for help.

Or will it take two?

~~~~~MY REVIEW~~~~~

Nice and NaughtyNice and Naughty by Jayne Rylon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a yummy fun read!! It kicks things of fairly quickly, wicked little roadside steam!!! This is a very smexy read, loads of steam and variety packed into this short read. I love a hot twin menage!! Oh girl, forget the panties cause you will just have to change them later!

Even though the feeling develop quickly I am willing to let it slide, sometimes lust feels like love. And hey this is fantasy, ain't nobody got time to build a relationship!! Still, I felt the liking and the connection between the three.

The story is very well written and fast paced. The side mystery is interesting without being overly complicated. For such a quick story I was really drawn in, I even had a sniffle/tearing up moment at the end.

I listened to the audiobook and it was a real treat!! Hello smexy voice, Gregory Salinas can read to me anytime!! Seriously call me up and read the phonebook!! He has a delicious growl to his voice that makes a girl swoon. Warning - Do not listen to this at work, you will not be able to concentrate on simple tasks and stout balding co-workers will suddenly look appealing. All the result of one smexy voice and some wickedly hot detailed steam!! He reads with such energy and enthusiasm, that a girl has to pause or embarrass herself in public!!

I can only hope Ms Rylon puts more of her books on audio using this delicious narrator who gives multiple eargasms!!

Spotlight & Giveaway - Julie Shelton DARK WARRIOR

Title: Dark Warrior           
Genre: Erotic Medieval Romance/Menage
Flame rating: Scorching

Released: 1/15/2014

Publisher: Siren BookStrand

When Nicholas Herron, Duke of Berwick and his best friend, Rolf Torgesson, two of King Edward III’s most powerful and respected knights, discover a badly beaten young woman hiding in the forest, they swear to protect her.  By the time they learn that she is Lady Kathryn Weston, and that her attacker is none other than her betrothed, Robert Walford, the powerful and ruthless Duke of Pemberton, it is too late.  They have both fallen in love with her and she with them—a love so forbidden it could cost them everything, even their lives.
Bent on revenge, Walford uses his power as Chief Magistrate of the Crown to issue two arrest warrants, one charging Kathryn with attempted murder, the other charging Nicholas with high treason.  For years he has been abusing the authority of his office by bringing false charges of treason against loyal knights and confiscating their wealth to finance his scheme to overthrow Edward and seize the throne of England. Getting his hands on Nicholas’s vast fortune would finally allow him to accomplish his goal.
Traveling to Berwick to serve the warrants in person, Walford’s triumph is short-lived when Nicholas publicly humiliates him and sends him packing.  Incensed, Pemberton hastily assembles an army to lay siege to Berwick castle, vowing to take it apart stone by stone. But Nicholas has anticipated just such a move and he has taken countermeasures to assure the safety of everyone at Berwick—especially Kathryn and their unborn child.
But Walford does something no one expects.  He sneaks into Berwick castle and seizes Kathryn and all of a sudden certain victory becomes a desperate race for Rolf and Nicholas to save their home and rescue the woman they love.
Set amidst the turmoil and pageantry of 14th-century England, Dark Warrior weaves a vivid tapestry of three lost souls who find each other and a deep, abiding love that could ultimately destroy them all.

Guest Post & Review - Jade's Peace by Melissa Stevens

Why will you love Steve? Number one, he's hot. Steve is a little older than the typical romance hero, he's well established and sure of himself and his position in the clan. Aside from being the head enforcer for his clan, he also has honor, and he always has. When he first felt the draw to Jade, when he was in his late 20's and she still a teenager, he knew better. He left his home, and his family behind to keep from doing something he knew would be wrong. What he didn't expect was for her to turn up on his doorstep ten years later. He's reluctance to become involved with her doesn't stand a chance against her determination and their mating instinct. He knows it's not going to be easy, especially once he learns the demons that haunt her, but he never backs down, he never doubts that
Can you think of anything better than a guy who's not only there for the good times but stands beside you and helps you through the bad ones too? I can't.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading Escape, I was really interested in checking out this book. I was not disappointed. It took the world created in the short story to a higher level. We get the HEA for Rebecca and Nick's second in command Steve.

I love JV, or Jade as her mate calls her. She is a total kick butt chick and sassy fun to read! She has so much spunk and attitude that you might think she would find a guy more deserving of her affections. I was not a huge Steve fan for most of the book, he had his head up his butt about the mating. Seriously, ten years is no big deal these days. It might have been an issue when she was 17 and her was 27, but he was smart enough to leave. That does not explain why he did not come back when she was a bit older, or why he was fighting the attraction so hard. Happily he won me over in the end, mostly cause he pulled his head out of his butt!

This is mostly from JV's POV, with a few others mixed in every now and again. The extra POVs were great for getting insight into the supporting characters feelings and motives. They were also very clearly separated, not at all confusing. Really great device for moving the story along.

This story was a touch long at times, we went over a bit more day to day routine than I generally like. While the storytelling was smooth the pace could have been a touch quicker. I just needed more action throughout to keep my interest.

I was really digging the vibe of the whole story and can not wait for more of the series. There is serious potential here. I might even have to check out Ms Stevens other series set in the same world!

About Melissa Blue
Melissa Blue’s writing career started on a typewriter one month after her son was born. This would have been an idyllic situation for a writer if it had been 1985, not 2004. Eventually she upgraded to a computer. She’s still typing away on the same computer, making imaginary people fall in love.

Ménage à Troys by Holley Trent
At the Den of Sin anything goes, so instead of two newlyweds letting down their guards to finally consummate their marriage of convenience, three people desperate to be touched forge bonds.

About Holley Trent:

Because of that, she’s unapologetically snarky and her love of dark humor comes through her characters.

Holley writes sassy contemporary romances, romantic comedies, and light paranormal romances – usually set in her home state.
