Author: Cheryl Ann Smith
Series: Brash & Brazen, book 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 14, 2017
Publisher: Lyrical Shine
Formats: Kindle, Paperback
Goodreads’ Rating: 4/5 stars
Synopsis: Harper Jane Evans is so over pro cheerleading but she’s not quite ready for prison.  Good thing she’s got a badass ex-boyfriend ready to go to bat for her . . .
Sure, Harper made a few unsavory threats against her team’s manager—she’d had a few drinks and she despised the skimpy uniform he expected her to wear. That didn’t mean she wanted him dead.  But when the sleazy dude is found murdered in his tighty whiteys, Harper is the number one suspect—and former FBI agent Noah Slade is the one man who can help. Too bad she once told Noah she never wanted to see him again . . .
Noah may have done a number on Harper’s heart all those years ago, but he’s determined to do right by her now. Yet the fiery beauty isn’t the only demon from his past, which makes hunting down a murderer by her side . . . complicated—never mind the powerful attraction still pulsing between them.  Good thing he’s willing to do just about anything to keep from losing Harper again. And an old love just might bring her a new career—assuming she can stay out of jail . . .

about author

authorNational bestselling author Cheryl Ann Smith became hooked on romance at age fourteen when she stayed up all night to read The Flame and The Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss. Her own writing journey
happened much later, when one afternoon she ran out of books and decided to write her own. Previously, she has published five sexy Regency novels and one novella with Berkley in her School for Brides series.

“Harper dug through her closet and pulled out a little red dress that she’d been saving for a special occasion. A charity event with Noah was the perfect place to dust it off. Small crystals edged the hem and bodice, giving the dress sparkle and she needed sparkle. After his comment in the car, she wanted to knock Noah’s feet out from under him.
Since his confession, she’d been feeling warm and fuzzy. Despite locking down her heart with a chain Noah couldn’t break, she just couldn’t completely shake him off.
 Yes, she agreed to sex, no frills, all fun, sex. But she couldn’t quite fully give him her trust.
 What if they dated, got married, and had kids? Then something crappy happened. Would Noah run for refuge with another woman? He had before. Could she take that risk?
 Equal parts of her were worried, and ready, to take the next step. She so wanted to test his lovemaking skills.
 With the tide turning away from her as his best suspect, Mignon was unlikely to interrupt her and Noah again. By the end of the evening, she hoped to be knee deep in the sheets with a warm and naked Noah.
 After showering and flat ironing her hair for a different look, she put on makeup and a barely-there red bra and matching tiny panties. Next, she slipped into the dress and loved the feel of the satin against her bare skin.
 Shoes with sparkles on the straps completed the picture. She’d just found her dress clutch when Noah arrived. She’d left the door unlocked. “You ready?” he called out.
 Taking a deep breath with her hand on her chest, she walked into the living room on high heels.
Noah went still. “Wow.”
 Dressed in a tux with a white shirt and bowtie, he was heart-stoppingly handsome. Not only had he shaved, but he’d had his hair trimmed. “Yeah, wow back.”
 She joined him. He took her hand and kissed the inside of her wrist, sending tingles up her arm. Up close, he smelled spicy and male. If not for the chance to speak to Betty Anne, and having spent too much time on her hair, she would’ve chucked their plans and taken him right to the bedroom.
 Noah offered her his arm. “Is it appropriate to be very aroused right now?”
 Laughing, she linked her arm through his. “I hear you.” She steered him to the door before she lost her resolve to behave. Going with an attempted baseball analogy, she said, “You’re pitching pheromones that I’m catching.” “

Blog Tour Spotlight Stop: Subhuman by Michael McBride

Hey there bookworms!
Today’s post is a stop on the tour for the book Subhuman by Michael McBride. This tour was organised by Silver Dagger Tours
Unit 51 #1
by Michael McBride
Genre: Horror, Thriller, Supernatural, Aliens

At a research station in Antarctica, five of

the world’s top scientists have been brought together to solve one

of the greatest mysteries in human history. Their subject, however,

is anything but human . . .


Deep beneath the ice, the submerged ruins of

a lost civilization hold the key to the strange mutations that each

scientist has encountered across the globe: A misshapen skull in

Russia. The grotesque carvings of a lost race in Peru. The mummified

remains of a humanoid monstrosity in Egypt . . .


When a series of sound waves trigger the

ancient organisms, a new kind of evolution begins. Latching onto a

human host—crossbreeding with human DNA—a long-extinct life form

is reborn. Its kind has not walked the earth for thousands of years.

Its instincts are fiercer, more savage, than any predator alive. And

its prey are the scientists who unleashed it, the humans who spawned

it, and the tender living flesh on which it feeds . . .

Praise for Michael McBride

A fast-paced and frightening ride. Highly recommended for fans of

creature horror and the thrillers of Michael Crichton.”—The


McBride writes with the perfect mixture of suspense and horror that
keeps the reader on edge.” —Examiner

Michael McBride was born in Colorado and still resides in the shadow of

the Rocky Mountains. He hates the snow, but loves the Avalanche.

He works with medical radiation, yet somehow managed to

produce five children, none of whom, miraculously, have tails, third

eyes, or other random mutations. He writes fiction that

runs the gamut from thriller (Remains) to horror to science fiction

(Vector Borne, Snowblind) . . . and loves every minute of it. He is a

two-time winner of the DarkFuse Readers’ Choice Award.

Blog Tour Spotlight: Fall of the Cities by Vance Huxley

Hey there bookworms!

Today’s post is a spotlight stop on the tour of Fall of the Cities by Vance Huxley. This tour has been organised by Silver Dagger Book Tours!

Title: Fall of the Cities: Planting the Orchard
Author: Vance Huxley
Genres: YA Fantasy; Apocalyptic
Published: November 27th, 2015 by Entrada Publishing
Pages: 369
Formats: eBook, Paperback
Goodreads Rating: 4.27 / 5 stars
Synopsis: The world is falling apart. Terrorists spark a worldwide oil and gas crisis while imports grind to a halt. Europe and Britain are erupting into chaos as food runs out and desperate people take matters into their own hands.

As the government begins to seal off rioting parts of the city, Corporal Harry Miller takes an offered discharge to get his sister and her kids to safety. But he’s not fast enough. Trapped in the city with a rag-tag collection of ordinary citizens, Harry struggles to create a small pocket of stability – a place to ride out the coming confrontation between rioters and the Army, and save themselves from complete annihilation.

Vance Huxley lives out in the countryside in Lincolnshire, England. He has spent a busy life working in many different fields. Eventually Vance tried writing though without any real structure.
Then he actually sent one off to be read. As an editor and beta readers explained the difference between words and books, he tried again.

Now he tries to type as often as possible in spite of the assistance of his cats, since he is no longer mobile. An avid reader of sci-fi, fantasy and adventure novels, so his writing tends towards those genres.

Blog Tour: Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats by Carla Rehse + Giveaway!

Hey there bookworms!
Welcome back to my blog for another post. Today’s post is a stop on the tour for Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats by Carla Rehse. This tour has been organised by Silver Dagger Book Tours (you can find more info about them down at the bottom of the post, if you wish to).

Title: Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats
Author: Carla Rehse
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Published: July 24th, 2017
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing
Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old homecoming queen, Gracie Mason, is a budding burglar.

While attempting her inaugural break-in, Gracie blacks out and wakes up far away from the scene. It turns out she accidentally intruded on a male witch’s “circle of power,” and now she’s bonded to him for life.

Gracie quickly learns that dissolving the bond with Asher, admittedly a very handsome and charming witch, is more complicated than she initially thought. To break the bond, Gracie must delve deeper into a society of witches that involves a secret club, a shadowy council, and all sorts of magical mischief. And right when it seems things can’t get any worse, witches start turning up dead.

It’s clear that Gracie is out of her depth as her quest to sever the bond magically turns into a murder investigation. But if Gracie and Asher don’t quickly uncover the killer, they might be next on the list.
