Skye Warren & Annika Martin-Hostage Teaser

January 24 teaser

I never knew when he’d come to me. Only that he would.

I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.

He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.

The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.

So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.

Until it’s too late to turn back.

HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!

Mistress sitting on a chair with lash over dark background

BLURB:

Come and meet the Domme of Stronghold…

It takes a strong man to win the heart of an even stronger woman.

Luke Evans is a confident, commanding man who happens to really like a bossy woman in the bedroom, so it’s no surprise when he’s immediately drawn to Stronghold’s bossiest Domme, Olivia Williams. Unfortunately for him, while he’s just Olivia’s type in a lot of ways, she’s not happy that he’s in a position of professional power over her, a decision she was not privy to when it was made. She’s determined not to mix business with pleasure, no matter how appealing putting Luke Evans on his knees in front of her would be. But Luke’s just as much a go-getter as Olivia and he’s perfectly happy to join the class of new submissives in order to show her just how far he’s willing to go.

When it becomes clear Olivia has attracted the attention of someone else – and not in a good way – the tension among the entire Stronghold group goes through the roof and Luke can’t help but feel protective no matter how Olivia resists him.

With two strong personalities both used to winning, who will come out on top in the end?

Natasha Knight-Captive Beauty Available Now

Title: Captive Beauty
Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: January 24, 2018
Blurb
Cilla
The Beast had Belle.
Killian Black has me.
How I got here doesn’t matter, even though he says it does. Says it was
my choice. He doesn’t get it, though. It wasn’t ever a choice for me.
And now, he’s changing the rules.
The agreement was one month. For thirty days, I’d be his. He’s no longer
satisfied with my body alone, though. He wants my soul, too. Wants every part
of me. And even though I can pretend I’m safe when I lie beneath him, this man
does something to me. Something wicked.
A thing that will break me.
Killian
Cilla made the choice. She offered the deal. I just took her up on it. So
what if I changed the rules half-way in? I’m not apologizing for it.
See, Cilla and me, we’re the same. She’s dark. As dark as me. Something
happened to her. Something bad. It damaged her.
But it’s not a hero she seeks. It’s an avenging angel. A dark knight.
That, I can do. I’ll slay her dragons, but it’ll cost her, because in return, I
want everything. And I’ll take it.
She’s mine.
Author’s note: Captive Beauty is a standalone
romance. Think Beauty and the Beast, but twisted and dark in the best, dirtiest
ways.

Excerpt
Prologue 1
Cilla
He’s watching me.
I know he is. He has cameras everywhere. Why wouldn’t he have one here? In
this, the “special” room? He told me he likes to keep an eye on his things. And
that’s what I am. A thing. A possession.
His.
Fucking his.
And today I
fucked up.
Today he’ll take
it out of my skin.
I shudder with
the thought. With the knowledge of what I know is coming.
I’ll fight him. I
wonder if he expects me to. Wants me to, even. All I know is I can’t submit to
him. I can’t let him break me.
But I am
breaking. Little by little.
I wonder if
that’s why he took me.
This is a game to
him. My life is a game.
I hug my knees to
myself. This room is so cold, unlike the others.
I pull the
blanket up around me, as much for the cold as for protection. It’s not like I
can hide my fear. He knows. He knows the real truth. Knows everything now.
My dress is torn
and I’m barefoot. He took my shoes away when he put me here. I guess the heels
could be used as a weapon. As if I could somehow manage to overpower him.
I try to swallow
but the lump in my throat makes it impossible. I’m scared and I hate it. I
don’t want to admit it. Not even to myself.
Tears wet my eyes
but before they have a chance to fall, I cover them with my hands and rub them
away. I don’t want him to see my weakness. He gets off on it.
I did this. I
pushed him. And I can survive this. I fucking have to.
It’s when I’m
giving myself that ridiculous pep talk that I hear his footfalls in the
hallway. Hear his voice, muffled so I can’t make out what he says. Probably
dismissing Hugo, his fucking henchman. Like he needs one.
Every hair on my
body stands on end when he slides the key into the lock. When he turns it. And
when he pushes the door open, it takes all I have not to crumple. Not to cave.
It takes all I
have to stand and ready myself for battle against this beast of a man.
Prologue 2
Kill
She claims I took
her, but that’s not the whole truth.
I gave her a
choice. She made it.
Someone needed to
be punished. It didn’t need to be her. She chose this. Chose to be here.
Well, okay, not
right here. Not like this. Standing against the far wall, her pretty, jade eyes
wide with fear, the delicate skin around them pink from tears.
She’s scared.
And she should
be.
She knows what’s
coming.
I warned her and
she fucked up.
I take her in,
pretty in pink. Pretty Priscilla. Even with her hair a mess. Her mascara a
black smear across her face. Her dress ruined. She’s scared shitless, but she’s
defiant. I like that about her. Like her fire.
It makes my dick
hard.
I close the door
but don’t bother locking it. No need. She’s not walking out of here tonight.
I’ll be carrying her when I’m through.
When I take a
step, she makes a sound, something like a frightened little rabbit would make
if they could make sound. Her hands are flat against the wall behind her. It’s
like she’s trying to melt into it.
“I guess we were
always going to end up here,” I say.
She has no
response apart from the sudden trembling of her body. She wraps her arms around
herself. I can even hear her teeth chatter. She’s too proud to beg though. Beg
me for mercy. I respect her for that. But I do like the idea of her on her
knees at my feet, clinging to me, pleading with me to spare her this one
thing. 
I slide off my
suit jacket and hang it over the back of the chair. I watch her reflection in
the mirror as I take off one cuff link, then the other, and set them both on
the table. I’m rolling up my sleeves when I return my attention to her. Her
eyes slide to my forearms. My hands.
“I know, Cilla,”
I say.
She looks up at
me.
“I know
everything.”

Anna Edwards-Fallen For Shame

Anna Edwards has come up with a great PNR series about the Glacial Blood pack. The newest one is Fallen For Shame. Now, this is the first Anna Edwards book I’ve read, but it’s not going to be the last. I’m going to have to go back and read the rest of the series. I wasn’t overly lost when I read this one, the third in the series. It’s about an individual couple set into a larger story arc. There was enough backstory that I had no problem with understanding what was going on.

The Glacial Blood pack is a multi-breed pack. It’s run by a polar bear, has some lions, some wolves, a snow leopard, and an Asiatic wild dog named Teagan.

Teagan has been looked down on her entire life just because she is a wild dog shifter. They are really considered the 2nd class citizens in the shifter world, considered vermin, and trashy. Everyone has always treated Teagan poorly, including her so-called best friend. That’s why she went to Glacial Blood. They have a reputation for being very tolerant and taking in just about anyone. That’s not all she found though. She also found Tyler, a wolf that she has been crushing on and lusting after.

Tyler is a wolf with the pack. Among other things, he cooks for them and is the local computer nerd. He has his own secrets and while Kas, the alpha, knows about them, he wants to keep them hidden from everyone else, especially Teagan, since he has some very warm feelings for her. He’s not sure that Teagan returns her feelings, that is until she is teaching him how to dance and they nearly kiss. Too bad something happened that scared him badly and made him run from the room.

Alright, you know the drill. I enjoyed this book. I like the world that Anna has set up and the way her shifters work. I think they are slightly more cohesive than some other shifters I’ve read about because they don’t seem to see themselves as a human self and an animal self, they just see a self. Or at least, that’s my take on it. I could be totally wrong. It happens. On occasion. Rarely. Maybe. Anyhow, Teagan and Tyler do end up with a helluva connection. It’s a thing of beauty. Although, I think that she should probably kick his ass more often. It would be good for him.

fallen for shame

According to Wikipedia, this is an Asiatic wild dog. Cute, right? Isn’t that just a face that says play with me, you know you wanna?

I think Teagan is my new hero. I mean, she is smart, tough, and the way that she stands up for herself and others is just impressive. I found myself wanting to give her a standing ovation myself. I think that she’s going to do all kinds of wonderful things.

I hate her so-called “friend”. Nothing but a condescending bully. Calling her a bitch works, as she’s a female canine, but isn’t mean enough. She definitely needs to get her head pulled out of her own arse. But hey, she got her comeuppance, so I’m happy with that. LOL.

OK, that’s all I have to say on this book. Go check it out. Keep your eyes on this space for new and exciting things. Meanwhile, happy reading!

Iris Ann Hunter-Tragic Beauty

This is dark. And when I’m warning you that it’s dark, you know I mean it. Tragic Beauty was my first real WTF did I just read book of 2018. I mean, there are some points where I just was questioning my sanity, let alone Iris Ann Hunter’s. But, I got through it with just as much sanity as I went into it with. Probably. When I read the next part of it, I will probably wonder where my sanity went again. But, right now I’m counting down the minutes until Iris announces that she’s publishing #2.

As a side note, I really debated marking this as BDSM. There are a lot of activities that you would see in a BDSM relationship, but that’s not what this is, so I didn’t mark it that way, so just be aware.

Ava has just buried her father. He has been sick for years. At her father’s funeral, Shayne comes up to her and reminds her of their deal. She asks for a couple of days to mourn her father and put her affairs in order. He reminds her that he owns her now and that he’ll be picking her up on Saturday.

Now, Ava is a sweet and virginal young woman who has spent the last 5 years, since she was 16, trying to really avoid Shayne. He is a bully, entitled, and won’t leave her alone. She knows to run away from him is to just provoke the beast, so she just does what she can to hide from him.  That never seems to stop him though. He just is hyperfocused on her and can’t leave her alone.

Shayne is the local rich, entitled douchebag. His parents have died. His brother died. He has all the money and owns most of the town. He has the cops in his pockets. That means that he gets away with pretty much whatever he wants. No one is going to stop him from doing anything he wants. And he wants to do Ava.

Poor Ava. She’s dreading the fact that all her choices are being taken away from her and that Shayne is going to be her first. She decides that she’s going to do something about that. That’s where Gavin comes into the picture.

When Ava is broken down on the side of the road, Gavin rescues her and takes her home. They spend some time together, and he helps her lose her virginity.

OK, this is where we are going to break off. I’m sure that you can guess that it’s going to end up a love triangle. It’s kind of obvious from the blurb, right? But, yeah, this is a triangle. It’s a very sharp triangle. My heart bleeds for Ava because she stuck at the very sharp end of that triangle. This book is sometimes really hard to get through. There are some very graphic scenes, so please make sure that you are aware of that before you go in and if graphic is not your cup of tea, then pass this one up. I have other books coming up that aren’t quite as dark, so maybe wait for one of those.

tragic beauty

Shayne is half a bubble off, if you know what I mean. His cheese done slipped his cracker, fell off the table, and hit the floor, only to be carried off by a mouse. The thoughts that come into his head are just wrong, wrong, wrong. We really don’t see anything of his POV, but we can tell some of what’s going on in his head because of what we see him do. I do not like Shayne, can you tell?

Gavin. Now him I like. But he needs to have a dope slap up the back of his head sometimes because he can’t get his own head out of his ass. Luckily, he does get better, but it still took him too long, in my opinion. We do get to see some of Gavin’s POV. Another author I read said that if you see the hero’s POV it makes you empathize with him more. For a villain, she never shares his POV, for someone who is supposed to be the good guy, she shares his POV. I thought that was really interesting because I can kind of see this here. I’d like to see what other people think about it and what you all have to say about it.

Ava, poor Ava. Poor, poor Ava. I hate Shayne.

OK, I’ve had to be really careful to not spoil anything, and I think I managed. If dark isn’t your thing, stay tuned, I’ve got some not dark coming later. Meanwhile, happy reading!
