Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for much for stopping by to see my new cover for HIDDEN DESTINY. I love this one. The background, couple…everything. Scott Carpenter, my artist, did an amazing job. Also, one of my favorite authors, gave me a cover quote that made me cry.

“The Billionaire’s Beck and Call” by Delilah Fawkes (ebook)
I’m still not sure what to make of this one which features a heroine who becomes the hero’s assistant – and then his love slave. It was okay, but not entirely memorable.
“Do Not Disturb” An Erotica Collection” anthology (ebook)
This anthology has several erotic novellas featuring hotel rooms. I enjoyed most of the stories and found them very steamy.

Review to come. This one isn’t out until October 2013.

“Tie Me” by Olivia Cunning (ebook)
This erotic romance was okay. Overall, I enjoyed it. However, I had a hard time connecting with Kellen, the hero. I’m also not terribly interested in the characters in this series unfortunately.
“A Simple Twist of Fate” by HelenKay Dimon (ebook)
This is the second book in HelenKay Dimon’s Hanover Brothers series featuring three brothers who inherit a house – a house in a town where their deceased father fleeced many people. I got caught up in the series arc in the first book and was looking forward to Beck and Sophie’s story. I found the romance to be engaging and romantic. The sexual tension between Beck and Sophie was intense, fueled by a sexy scene where Sophie walks in on a naked Beck. I cannot wait for the third brother’s story which should end the series arc.
“Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet” by Darynda Jones (ebook)
I adore Charley Davidson, the heroine in this series by Jones. She is the Grim Reaper and is having an interesting sort of relationship with the son of Satan. Things with said son, Reyes, heat up considerably in this one. These books are perfect, fun, summer reads.
“Gabriel’s Heart” by Rebecca Joyce (ebook)
I kind of thought Gabriel (one of the two heroes in this book) was an ass. I wasn’t sure why he kept pushing the heroine away when it was so obvious she loved him (and he loved her back).
“Not Until You Part VI: Not Until You Surrender” by Roni Loren (ebook)
I feel as if I have to finish reading this serialized novel before I can formulate an opinion.
“Innocence Defied” by Lainey Reese (ebook)
I’m not sure that I can formulate my thoughts on this book coherently. It was a rough, rough read for me. I felt as if the heroine came across as a young teenager rather than a young adult. This made it very difficult for me to buy the romance. I was rather disappointed in this story, especially as I am a very huge fan of the other books in this series.

But when Sterling wants more than just one night with Candy, she's not sure she's ready to bet her heart on a one-night stand.
