Review of Unbridled Temptation (Montana Double Riders 1) by Elle Saint James

Happy Hump Day folks! Today's Review is about Unbridled Temptation by talented author Elle Saint James. This is a story about a couple of good looking cowboys, a old western town in an amusement park, and a beautiful young woman looking for her runaway sister in said amusement park. She meets both mouthwatering men and can't help but to give them a ride..I mean try. *Wink wink*
Jocelyn Demarco has gone to great lengths searching for her runaway sister, including something she swore she’d never do. Taking a single day off to relieve some stress from her journey and also to enjoy her passion for history in an Old West–themed town, she finds sexy cowboys Kendall Forrester and Logan Pearson and can’t keep her lips off of either man. They take the occasion to tie her up and control her sexual bliss, teaching her about the pleasures they enjoy. Being bound and blindfolded becomes her newly discovered satisfaction. Confirmed bachelors Kendall and Logan never thought they’d find a woman who would make them ache at her departure. They’ve never wanted to settle down until Jocelyn came along. After she leaves, they discover her deception. Will their wickedly dark and sexy lifestyle intrigue Jocelyn enough to come back to Montana for another taste, or will the secret they’ve discovered keep them from trusting her to pursue a future?
My Review:
I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. It was fun reading a romance book about cowboys in a Western family amusement park. It was a different twist on your average cowboy who works or owns a ranch. Kendall and Logan are perfectly handsome rascals who own this authentic looking Western town who just like to recreate the Old West for families that wanted a small taste of the Old West without having to read about it in a history book. When Logan plays at being a highwayman and robs the " wagon" passing by, he meets beautiful innocent Jocelyn and since she doesn't have any fancy jewels or money, decides to "steal" a kiss instead. Sparks instantly fly between these two then comes Kendall as the sexy sheriff who can't help but to taste Jocelyn for himself as well. They decide to have a fun night filled with hot sex between the three of them before Jocelyn goes on her way again to find her wayward sister. She ends up coming back a few weeks later because she craves the dark tastes in the bedroom that those sexy men describe to her and she wants..MORE!! This story was a wonderful first book in this series and I can't help but to wonder what other sexy men there are in this little Western Town and what other delights they play out with their women. If you like sexy cowboys, innocent women who love to be tied up and a Old Western Town, then you will no doubt be in love with this series.

Review of Bewitched By The Moon and Interview featuring Morgan Fox, author of Bewitched

I am super excited today because I have the FABULOUS Morgan Fox here to harass, I mean Interview. She is the author of  Bewitched By The Moon. The fifth installment of her incredible Moonlight Shifter Series. First off, lets get to the interview and don't forget to check out my review afterwards and feel free to comment on what you think of Morgan Fox and her delightful Moonlight Shifter Series!
Please give a big welcome to the gorgeous Morgan Fox! First off Mrs. Fox I would like to say thank you for being here with me today and I would also like to say how much I adore your Moonlight Shifter Series.
What was your favorite book growing up and why?
Sadly, I did not read much as a kid. I didn’t sit still long enough. I was always day dreaming or being a busy kid with way too much imagination. I spent most of my time creating make believe worlds.
One summer I rewrote the Star Wars Trilogy to include a sexy love interest for Luke Skywalker. He so needed a strong woman to call his own.
But…the first book that ever held my attention long enough to complete didn’t happen until 1992 when I picked up a copy of R.L. Stine’s Goodnight Kiss. A Fear Street Super Chiller that was about a young girl who was lured away from her first love by another boy. His intoxicating kiss left her craving more. His kiss was the kiss of a vampire.
I couldn’t put the book down. I blasted through all 216 pages like they were nothing. That started my insatiable hunger for more books just like that. Now I have a personally library at home with more than 2000 titles covering my shelves.
Did you always want to be an author?
Some people are born knowing exactly what they are meant to do with their lives. I was one of them. Even though I tried to take a different path in life, I still found my way back to writing.
My first full book was completed when I was 15. It was about a family who was all musicians and while touring the country found the girls of their dreams.  
What can I say? Writing romance is in my blood and always has been.

We know that you have your Texas Stallion Series and the Moonlight Shifter Series which are both incredibly good, but which series would you consider to be your favorite?

       An author loves all her babies. There is something unique and magical about each and every one of my stories. I often take a stroll back through the books and get swept away by the words and see it all happening again as if I was writing it for the first time and learning each character from scratch.
       The Moonlight Shifters was the first series I started so that makes it very special. Plus, the characters have blown me away with their strength, courage and love for one another.
       Texas Stallions was my first western series and I loved the drama of the stories, living on a ranch, strong men chasing down villains to save the women they loved, and the hard working souls that poured out of each character.
       I’ve also written a series called Cowboys & Werewolves. This series is amazing to me since I took pieces of both the Moonlight Shifters and Texas Stallions and created a little Texas paranormal world all my own.
       I can’t seem to pick just one…
How many more books are going into your Moonlight Shifter Series?

Currently there are six books in the series:

Seduced by the Moon
Tempted by the Moon
Enticed by the Moon
Ravished by the Moon
Bewitched by the Moon
Enslaved by the Moon
All books are available, except Enslaved which I’m currently working on now.

Which Moonlight Shifter book is your personal favorite and why?

      I’ve loved each book so much in the series, but one in particular has stood out in my mind. Ravished by the Moon. I am in love with Dominic and Reyes and the relationship they have with the heroine. I found their chemistry explosive at times.

       And as I’m writing Enslaved by the Moon, I feel so much of what I liked about Ravished by the Moon. The passion of these characters and the turmoil they must face…simply breathtaking and a pleasure to write.  

Thanks So much for stopping by and I can't wait for the next book in your delightfully sinful Moonlight Shifter Series!

I gave this book a Four out of Five stars. I really like Tiffany. I can totally get a image of her as a fey witch. She has all the right traits for a innocent young fey. Smart, shy, gorgeous, and not really a fighter. BUT she does have a spark of feistiness in her that gives her a smidgen of awesomeness that I look for in a good heroine. Now Zane he is a great alpha male. Full of testosterone and oozing sexiness, curiosity, and the kind of smarts you don't find in really good looking men. He has a burning passion for this young witch that makes it that much brighter reading their story. I like how there never seems to be a boring moment. There is ALWAYS something going on in all the pages. Fighting attraction, fleeing from or taking down the enemy following them, jealousy when another man comes around Zane's mate and vice versa. Incredible! Morgan Fox created a world you want to be in where males show their females who is in charge and why they make such great protectors. I love her style of writing and can easily get lost in one of her books. Honestly, I couldn't ask for more in a great read. If you want a spicy, erotic romance with sexy werewolves and brave yet innocent heroines then I suggest you pick up one of Morgan Fox's Moonlight Shifter books.

ARC: Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones

Never underestimate the power of a woman
on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high.

      Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper.  She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire.  However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case.  Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth…but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.  When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help.  Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.

Ask me about life after death.
—T-shirt often seen on Charley Davidson,
    a grim reaper with questionable morals

The dead guy at the end of the bar kept trying to buy me a drink.
Which figured. No one else was even taking a second look and I’d
dressed to the nines. Or, at the very least, the eight- and- a-halves.
But the truly disturbing part of my evening was the fact that my
mark, one Mr. Marvin Tidwell, blond real estate broker and suspected
adulterer, actually turned down the drink I’d tried to buy

Turned it down!

I felt violated.

I sat at the bar, sipping a margarita, lamenting the sad turn my life
had taken. Especially to night. This case was not going as planned.
Maybe I wasn’t Marv’s type. It happened. But I was oozing interest.
And I wore makeup. And I had cleavage. Even with all that going for
me, this investigation was firmly wedged between the cracks of no and
where. At least I could tell my client, aka Mrs. Marvin Tidwell, that it
would seem her husband was not cheating on her. Not randomly,
anyway. The fact that he could’ve been meeting someone in par tic ular
kept me glued to my barstool.

“C-come here often?”

I looked over at the dead guy. He’d finally worked up the courage
to approach and I got a better view of him. I figured him for the runt
of the litter. He wore round- rimmed glasses and a tattered baseball
cap that sat backwards on top of muddy brown hair. Add to that a
faded blue T-shirt and loosely ripped jeans and he could’ve been a
skater, a computer geek, or a backwoods moonshiner.

His cause of death was not immediately apparent. No stab wounds
or gaping holes. No missing limbs or tire tracks across his face. He
didn’t even look like a drug addict, so I couldn’t tell why he’d died at
such a young age. Taking into account the fact that his baby- faced
features would make him look younger than he probably was, I estimated
him to be somewhere around my age when he’d passed.

He stood waiting for an answer. I thought “Come here often?”
was rhetorical, but okay. Not wanting to be perceived as talking to
myself in a room full of people, I responded by lifting one shoulder
in a halfhearted shrug.

Sadly, I did. Come here often. This was my dad’s bar, and while I
never set up stings here for fear of someone I knew blowing my
cover, this just happened to be the very same bar Mr. Tidwell frequented.
At least if it came to a knockdown drag- out, I might have
some backup. I knew most of the regulars and all of the employees.

Dead Guy glanced toward the kitchen, seeming nervous before he
refocused on me. I glanced that way as well. Saw a door.

“Y-you’re very shiny,” he said, drawing my attention back to him.

He had a stutter. Few things were more adorable than a grown
man with boyish features and a stutter. I stirred my margarita and
pasted on a fake smile. I couldn’t talk to him in a room full of living,
breathing patrons. Especially when one was named Jessica Guinn, to
my utter mortification. I hadn’t seen her fiery red hair since high
school but there she sat, a few seats down from me, surrounded by a
group of chattering socialites who looked almost as fake as her boobs.
But that could be my bitterness rearing its ugly head.

Unfortunately, my forced smile only encouraged Dead Guy.

“Y-you are. You’re like the s-sun reflecting off the chrome bumper of
a f-fifty- seven Chevy.”

He splayed his fingers in the air to demonstrate, and my heart was
gone. Damn it. He was like all those lost puppies I tried to save as a
child to no avail because I had an evil stepmother who believed all
stray dogs were rabid and would try to rip out her jugular. A fact that
had nothing to do with my desire to bring them into the house.

“Yeah,” I said under my breath, doing my best ventriloquist impersonation,

“I’m D-Duff ,” he said.

“I’m Charley.” I kept my hands wrapped around my drink lest he
decide we needed to shake. Not many things looked stranger to the
living world than a grown woman shaking air. You know those kids
with invisible friends? Well, I was one of those. Only I wasn’t a kid,
and my friends weren’t invisible. Not to me, anyway. And I could see
them because I’d been born the grim reaper, which was not as bad as
it sounded. I was basically a portal to heaven, and whenever someone
was stuck on Earth, having chosen not to cross over immediately after
death, they could cross to the other side through me. I was like a giant
bug light, only what I lured was already dead.

I pulled at my extra- tight sweater. “Is it just me, or is it really
warm in here?”

His baby blues shot toward the kitchen again. “Hot is m-more
like it. S-so, I— I couldn’t help but notice you t-tried to buy that guy
over there a drink.”

I let my fake smile go. Freed it like a captured bird. If it came back
to me, it would be mine. If not, it never was. “And?”

“You’re b-barking up the wrong tree with that one.”

Surprised, I put my drink down— the one I bought myself— and
leaned in a little closer. “He’s gay?”

Duff snorted. “N-no. But he’s been in here a lot lately. He l-likes
his women a little . . . l-looser.”

“Dude, how much sluttier can I get?” I indicated my attire with a
sweep of my hand.

“N-no, I mean, well, you’re a l-little—” He let his gaze travel the
length of me. “—t-tight.”

I gasped. “I look anal?”

He drew in a deep breath and tried again. “H-he only hits on
women who are more s-substantial than you.”

Oh, that wasn’t offensive at all. “I have depth. I’ve read Proust.
No, wait, that was Pooh. Winnie- the- Pooh. My bad.”

He shifted his non ex is tent weight, cleared his throat, and tried
again. “More v-voluptuous.”

“I have curves,” I said through a clenched jaw. “Have you seen
my ass?”

“Heavier!” he blurted out.

“I weigh— Oh, you mean he likes bigger women.”

“E-exactly, while I on the other hand—”

Duff ’s words faded into the background like elevator music. So
Marv liked big women. A new plan formed in the darkest, most corrupt
corners of Barbara. My brain.

Cookie, otherwise known as my receptionist during regular business
hours and my best friend 24/7, was perfect. She was large and in
charge. Or well, large and kind of bossy. I picked up my cell phone
and called her.

“This better be good,” she said.

“It is. I need your assistance.”

“I’m watching the first season of Prison Break.

“Cookie, you’re my assistant. I need assistance. With a case. You
know those things we take on to make money?”

Prison. Break. It’s about these brothers who—”

“I know what Prison Break is.”

“Then have you ever actually seen these boys? If you had, you
would not expect me to abandon them in their time of need. I think
there’s a shower scene coming up.”

“Do these brothers sign your paycheck?”

“No, but technically neither do you.”

Damn. She was right. It was much easier to just have her forge my

“I need you to come flirt with my mark.”

“Oh, okay. I can do that.”

Nice. The F-word always worked with her. I filled her in and told
her the deal with Tidwell, then ordered her to hurry over.

“And dress sexy,” I said right before hanging up. But I regretted
the sexy part instantly. The last time I told Cookie to dress sexy for a
much- needed girls’ night out on the town, she wore a lace- up corset,
fishnet stockings, and a feather boa. She looked like a dominatrix. I’d
never been the same.

My Review:
As Soon as I heard there was a Fifth installment for the Charley Davidson Series, I was instantly and utterly anticipating this book. Then, when I got a looksee at both the title and cover, I was lost. I knew this was going to be epic and once I got a hold of this I was never going to be the same. This was even better then the first four books and I didn't think that was going to be possible. I mean really, better then the last four? Oh yea. WAY BETTER. There is more Reyes, more mystery, more passion, more witty dialogue from our favorite characters and a whole ton of never ending surprises. I was entranced in the story as soon as I opened it. Stuck in Charley's world full of doom, gloom, and fun-loving friends and family. Oh and that sexy Son of Satan, Reyes Farrow who lives right next door from Charley! Oh how I envy Charley.. and maybe a bit of Cookie too! Don't know what I'm talking about because you haven't read it yet? Well lets just say Cookie got a little something out of the deal with Reyes. I won't say more because what would the fun be in that? *smirks*  Anywho... I LOVED This book! Utterly and truly LOVED it. I gave it a Five out of Five Stars! No contest. No hardship. This book is MY personal favorite and I truly think it is the BEST so far in the Series. There is NO DOUBT in my mind that Darynda Jones will outdo herself in the next book. NO DOUBT! Every time I think she couldn't make a better one, I was wrong, so now I shall forever be anticipating and craving the next one... and the next one after that and so on and so on. If you haven't checked out this book, or this series, I highly suggest you hightail it to the nearest B&N or Amazon page and pick up your book. Or even go to your local bookstore and pick the paperback up because I'm telling you, You will be glad you did.

Review of MacRieve by Kresley Cole

I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July. Even though the fireworks I went to see, weren't all that great, I still had a very good time. I am thrilled to be doing a review today for MacRieve by Kresley Cole. This is the next book in the IAD(Immortals After Dark) Series by Kresley Cole. This is one of my favorite series of all time! They have any and all kinds of Immortals you can imagine. Valkyries, vampires, Fey, Demons, Lykae, Witches...and so on. I have a personal favorite for the Lykae. They are amazingly seductive, strong, kind, loyal, and can turn into a "Beast" when their mates are in danger. Plus they are Scottish! How I love me some sexy Scotsmen.

Uilleam MacRieve believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood. But when a brutal torture revives those ancient agonies and destroys his Lykae instinct, the proud Scot craves the oblivion of death. Until he finds her—a young human so full of spirit and courage that she pulls him back from the brink.


Seized for the auction block, Chloe Todd is forced to enter a terrifying new world of monsters and lore as a bound slave. When offered up to creatures of the dark, she fears she won’t last the night. Until she’s claimed by him—a wicked immortal with heartbreaking eyes, whose touch sets her blood on fire.


With enemies circling, MacRieve spirits Chloe away to the isolated Highland keep of his youth. But once he takes her to his bed, his sensual mate becomes something more than human, evoking his savage past and testing his sanity. On the cusp of the full moon, can he conquer his worst nightmare to save Chloe…from himself?
I gave this a Five out of Five Stars! It was an incredible story. Uilleam  MacRieve was tortured by Webb, a  former military man who formed the "Order" to capture, study, and destroy the Immortals thinking they were preying on mortals. When he escapes, he is out of his mind, crazy with all the things done to him in the Order's prison plus by a past that still haunts him featuring a perverted Succubus who used him when he was only nine years old. When he finds out that a batch of Witches captures Webb's daughter, he goes to pay revenge only to find his mate in the beautiful yet brave young mortal. Turns out after he claims her, that she is an immortal herself and his worst enemy..a succubus! Now Imagine poor Chloe as she finds herself changing but not knowing what she will be changing herself into until her "awakening". She gets kidnapped, her father abandons her, and she finds a crazed Lykae who claims she is his mate. When she hops into bed with the sexy Will, her awakening turns her into a gorgeous young Succubus, the very creature who tormented Will and helped kill his parents when he was just a boy. He of course, hates her at first for what she is, but when she becomes ill do to his hate, he realizes that not all Succubus are the same and is determined to save her and win her heart. This book had me biting my nails, giggling, sighing and had me at the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading. Mrs. Cole's IAD world is an intriguing place filled with violence, passion, many species of immortals, and love that won't be denied. Just when I think this world can't get better, I turn out to be wrong and I couldn't be happier being wrong. For all you IAD fans, you will no doubt find yourself enthralled with the latest IAD book and will pray, beg, and cry until the next one is released. For those that haven't given this incredible series a go, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST! Its super addicting and full of adventure and crazy immortals you will both love and hate. A MUST MUST MUST READ!

Review of Caught By Menace by Lolita Lopez

It's almost the FOURTH OF JULY!! YAY! I am reviewing Caught By Menace by Lolita Lopez today on my blog. I have been transfixed by this series since Grabbed By Vicious. It has all the elements I love about a romance. Strong, brawny men, wet-your-panties-by-the-page passion, a fiery yet curious woman, a easy to follow storyline, and the slight touch of consensual BDSM. YUM! Menace is the kind of male any red blooded woman wants in a man. He is strong, sexy, kind, patient, and SO GOOD at seduction. Throwing in the BDSM made this book that much more enticing.
Grabbed, Book Two

Menace’s plan to catch a docile woman is shot to hell when he’s tackled by a dark-haired beauty who wants to save her friend from being Grabbed. Refusing to leave the planet’s surface empty-handed, Menace claims the spitfire with his collar.

Naya clawed her way off the streets of Connor’s Run and vowed to never let any man control her. She plans to make Menace so miserable he’ll set her free, but the ruggedly sexy warrior disarms her with his unexpected patience and kindness.

Against her better judgment, Naya surrenders to Menace’s masterful hands and mouth. Submitting to her new husband brings more pleasure and happiness than she’d ever imagined possible. For the first time in her life, she willingly trusts a man to protect her.

But when past misdeeds catch up with her, Naya puts the depth and strength of that love to the test. Determined to prove he’s worthy of her trust, Menace will stop at nothing to save her.

Now I gave this a Five out of Five Stars..EASILY. I loved the characters. Naya was such a loyal young woman and so curious and passionate at the same time. Not to mention completely brave when it came down to it. The BDSM elements were wonderful. Light, consensual, and erotic as all get out. I was amazed at how well the story came along for the characters and I hope I don't have to wait long for the next book. I want to know what happens to Terror and see some more rockin' BDSM sex! If you liked Laurann Dohner's Zorn Series and  books featuring light BDSM, you will no doubt fall in love with this series. Lolita Lopez is a stupendous writer and knows how to create a unique world and erotic, sensual delights with characters that leave you smiling, crying, groaning, angry and just plain attached. I totally recommend this series.
