Series: Black Ops: Automatik, book 2


He was her safety.


She was his backup.


Former navy SEAL Ben Jackson knows that sexy "Mary Long" is nothing but a cover; that beneath the stylish clothes and flirty smile is a stone cold super-soldier no one ever gets close to. Until her kiss hits him like one of her sniper rounds. But Morris Flats is no place for a hookup—menace hums through the town, and the more the two operators keep pushing for answers, the more deadly the current seems to run.

Need a Romance to Read?

InkEduringLooking for a menage romance? Menage romances aren’t as prevalent as they once were. I certainly haven’t read too many over the past year. But recently, I did read Carrie Ann Ryan’s Ink Enduring, the fifth book in the Montgomery Ink series, a wonderful and angst-filled m/m/f romance. Maya and Jake have been best friends forever (at least throughout the entire Montgomery Ink series), but there was always a hint that there could be more between them. But one problem is Jake’s unresolved feelings for Border, a past love. And when Border shows up, Jake and Maya’s complicated relationship becomes more so. But there is a strong attraction between Border and Maya, opening up the possibility of a three way relationship. There are some very hurt feelings between Border and Jake, complicated feelings between Jake and Maya and fledgling feelings between Maya and Border. All of these need to be worked out for these three to find happiness together.

MakeMeLoveYouMake Me Love You by Johanna Lindsey (historical, Gallery, July 2016)


One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.


Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.

June #SpurtCount2016

DamagedGoodsBooks Read: 39

Spurts: 20

Love Spurts: 17

Non-Love Spurts: 3



  • Several books had two spurts each: Auctioned to the Gentle Dom by Doris O’Conner (1 love & 1 non love spurt), Burn Down the Night in M. O’Keefe (2 love spurts), Bad Bitch by Christina Saunders (2 love spurts), Playing for Keeps by JC Grant (2 love spurts), Damaged Goods by Ainslie Paton (2 love spurts - kind of - see below) and Stormy Weather by Desiree Holt in Hero to Obey anthology (2 love spurts)


Spurt of the Month: ʺCan't get erect, can't spurt, can't get a woman pregnant.ʺ from Ainslie Patton’s Damaged Goods (which is out on July 29). This is the first time a character has said the word spurt in a love-spurt context. The hero, Owen, has suffered a spinal injury and is still recuperating. As a result, he is impotent and here he is bemoaning the fact that he can’t spurt. Kudos to Ainslie Paton for her creative spurt use.

Review: What Remains by Garrett Leigh

WhatRemainsWhat Remains by Garrett Leigh (Riptide Publishing, July 4, 2016, $6.99, 283pp)




Web designer Jodi Peters is a solitary creature. Lunch twice a week with his ex-girlfriend-turned-BFF and the occasional messy venture to a dodgy gay bar is all the company he needs, right?


Then one night he stumbles across newly divorced firefighter Rupert O’Neil. Rupert is lost and lonely, but just about the sweetest bloke Jodi has ever known. Add in the heady current between them, and Jodi can’t help falling hard in love. He offers Rupert a home within the walls of his cosy Tottenham flat—a sanctuary to nurture their own brand of family—and for four blissful years, life is never sweeter.

StealingHisThunderStealing His Thunder by Sparrow Beckett (erotic, InterMix, June 2016)


Series: Masters of Adrenaline, book 1


Nothing gives Addison Kennedy a rush like stealing cars. The Lexus was the perfect target, but before she can get its engine purring, she's cold-cocked unconscious. When she comes to, she finds herself on a bed with a blonde, tattooed god standing over her.


Fox Larson is shocked to discover the thief he knocked out is actually a hot girl. Bringing her home may not have been the smartest move, but he wasn’t about to leave an unconscious and defenseless woman in a parking garage. Besides, if she’s part of an auto theft crew infringing on his territory, he needs to pump her for information.
