Stripped Bounty Cover Reveal and Review

Written by Jennifer Porter

StrippedBountyDorothy F. Shaw’s next book, Stripped Bounty, is out on August 9th. Check out the hot cover for this erotic, contemporary romance featuring a relapsing stripper and bounty-hunting bouncer.


Stripped Bounty by Dorothy F. Shaw (erotic, self published, August 2016)


Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.


Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.


After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.


When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.


So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.

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?

Written by Jennifer Porter

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.

Review: Make Me Love You by Johanna Lindsey

Written by Jennifer Porter

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.

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.

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.

Mini Reviews for Week of May 16, 2016

Written by Jennifer Porter

wickedheartWicked Heart by Leisa Rayven (contemporary, St. Martin’s Griffin, May 2016)
In Wicked Heart by Leisa Rayven, the third book in the Starcrossed series, is a cute, yet emotional romance reuniting Liam Quinn and Elissa Holt. These two met and fell in love five years ago on the set of Liam’s first acting job where Lissa was the stage manager. Liam was on the cusp of stardom and ended up breaking Lissa’s heart when he moved across the country and started dating his co-star. Fast forward to a new play where Liam and his now fiance (Angel) are starring in another stage production that Lissa is managing. There are some seriously unresolved feelings between Liam and Lissa, despite his commitment to Angel - who happens to be a sweet and caring woman. There is no evil fiance to act as romantic foil here. Things aren’t necessarily what they seem between Liam and Angel, and this situation provides the majority of the external conflict.


Overall, this one is a heartwarming romance with some very funny moments. This story will satisfy fans of the reunited lovers trope - and possibly make them hate publicists and agents.
