How Cassie Got Her Grind Back

Book Blurb:
How Cassie Got Her Grind Back can be pre-ordered now!
Cassie Villalobos promised Samson and Ivan Cutter on the day they graduated high school that she would pursue her dreams of becoming a singer-songwriter, no matter what.
Raised under the dictatorial thumb of her father, Cassie’s promise went unfulfilled. Newly single, her hands are full running her coffee shop, Divine Drip, and dealing with her aging parents, and lothario ex-husband.
Samson and Ivan left Divine after graduation, never intending to return, but they’ve never forgotten their love for Cassie.
Banked embers flare between the three at their thirty year class reunion. Although she has friends in ménages, Cassie is intimidated by the desire of two men, believing she is past her prime and the men set out to change her mind.
Samson’s passion for sadism is balanced by Ivan’s easy affection, and Cassie finds the combination irresistible. Hope flares for fulfilling all her dreams while stirring the distorted illusions of someone obsessed with controlling her.

Box Set: Divine Grace, Her Gentle Giant (Parts 1 & 2), Heavenly Angel

More excitement coming on May 6th! Siren-BookStrand is releasing the Divine Creek Ranch Collection boxed set, Volume One for $4.99. All three stories bundled together at a fantastic price for 500,000+ words...
In Divine Grace, with the help of three gorgeous men Grace is able to free herself from an abusive boyfriend. Jack, Ethan, and Adam know they have found the one woman they want to pleasure and protect, but the real difficulty comes in convincing her that their interest is in far more than just a fling. For them, this is forever.
In Her Gentle Giant, Part 1: No Regrets, Eli Wolf, a cross between Viking and Indian warrior, has found in Rachel Lopez someone infinitely more compelling than the women who flock to him nightly as security at The Dancing Pony Nightclub. When Rachel’s apartment burns down, Eli invites her to stay with him and begins the work of overcoming Rachel’s jealous nature, the one thing that could keep them apart.
In Her Gentle Giant, Part 2: Remember to Dance, as Rachel and Eli prepare for a future together, painful memories surface from Rachel’s past. Though she protests to be unaffected by them, Eli is not so fast to forgive. He recruits the men of Divine Creek Ranch in his effort to correct the offense. Rachel confronts a test of her own as she decides once and for all whether her trust in Eli is absolute.
In Heavenly Angel, Angel Martinez spends months patiently coaxing the beautiful Teresa out of her self-imposed shell. Teresa has left a painful past behind in order to begin a new life for her and her son. She cares deeply for the Divine Creek Ranch foreman but, just as she is ready to let her guard down, the arrival of Joaquin, Angel’s brother, throws her for a loop. Now her efforts of moving on are doubly tested as she considers the alluring possibility of having both the heavenly Angel and the devilish Joaquin.

Meet the Heroes of How Cassie got Her Grind Back
Samson Cutter, late 40s
Occupation: Emergency Services Dispatcher (911 operator). He served as an MP in the Army, and then as a police officer in Morehead, before being injured in the line of duty put him in the desk job. He’s also a Dominant at Hazelle House, an exclusive BDSM club in Morehead. He’s very popular among the masochists and submissives…now he just needs the right one to satisfy his darker cravings and lonely night.

Movies: the classic sci-fi action movies like Terminator, Alien, Predator
Band: AC/DC – I don’t “get” a lot of the tunes Joseph plays on the sound system at Hazelle House and I’m usually so busy I tune them out anyway. I like classic rock.
Song: Back in Black
Quote: “Life is hard; it’s harder when you’re stupid” by John Wayne. There’s also a more recent favorite from my good friend, Bunny Carrigan: “It’s not gonna spank itself, Sir.” Yeah, I know it’s not necessarily original with her but that little redhead is a hoot, and she sure keeps my friend Joseph on his toes.
TV Show: M*A*S*H (Yeah, I’m old school, I know.)
Holiday: Christmas
Sport: Football. Is there any other? And yeah, Dallas Cowboys rule! And Ivan can suck it.

Interview with Samson
What is your most cherished possession? By this question I assume you mean inanimate objects. I try not to get too hung up on possessions but if pressed I’d have to say my impact toy collection, mainly whips that I’m especially fond of using, and my book collection.
How do you feel about being the center of attention? I don’t mind it. I like being in a leadership role which often means having eyes on me. At the club, I don’t generally notice, especially during scenes. My focus needs to remain on whoever I’m working with. I take that responsibility seriously.
What makes you blush? Compliments…and questions about what kind of underwear I prefer to wear.
What makes you laugh out loud? The stuff Bunny says to Joseph at Hazelle House just to see how he reacts, usually with a ball gag and a paddle…or orgasm torture if she’s especially naughty.
How do you feel, generally, about the opposite sex? Unworthy, and I mean that in the larger sense and not as a lack on my part. I grew up with loving parents and in general I love the fairer sex. I think they’re stronger than men in almost every way except for possibly the physical sense…but then I think of them giving birth and yeah, nope. They’re stronger all the way around.
What is your worst habit? Not going to the gym more. And maybe cussing.
Do you have any irrational fears or phobias? Heights really bug me.
How do you think your exes would describe you? Distant, maybe? I think in the back of my mind I was holding out because no one compared to Cassie.
How deeply does your job / social role define you as a person? To a high degree. I like being in a position of leadership and direction, whether it’s on the job or at the BDSM club. People rely on me and I enjoy that role
What are you the most hopeless at? Small talk. I hate wasting time with chit-chat. I prefer action to talking.
What would you never do, no matter the price? Cheat in a committed relationship. In my line of work in both the military and as a police officer I’ve seen a lot of it, as well as the consequences and the collateral damage.


Ivan Cutter, late 40s
Occupation: Executive Chef at Hermione in Morehead, Texas. He had dreams of attending college on a football scholarship but those were dashed when he was injured his senior year. His knee injury also kept him from his Plan B which was to serve in the Army along with Samson so he went to school and became a chef. He worked for Texas’ most mercurial and demanding restaurateur, Hermione Jones, creating great meals, feeding lots of people, and enjoying life…and then a gorgeous brunette from his past came back into his life.

Ivan’s Favorites:
Food: Any kind of food if it’s well prepared. I have a special place in his heart for a good spicy shrimp/crab/crawfish boil eaten outdoors with an ice cold beer.
Color: Green and blue
Book: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and sci-fi fantasy graphic novels. Oh, and Shakespeare.
Movie: See up above translated into movie form.
All-time Favorite Singer: Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble
Song: I love too many songs to have a favorite. Top three: “Pride and Joy” by Stevie Ray Vaughan; “Stuck On You” by Sugarland; and “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge.
Quote: “If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen,” from Harry Truman,  and from Shakespeare, “When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.” I always thought that last one was pretty romantic.
TV Show: I work so many nights I don’t have any favorite television shows, although I was a big fan of “Dirty Jobs” and “Friends” which I can usually find late night on reruns somewhere on satellite.
Holiday: Christmas
Sport: Football. Oh, and the Dallas Cowboys SUCK! *cough*So does Samson*cough*

Which Do You Prefer?
Pepsi or Coke: Cherry Coke with real cherries, not the bottled stuff.
Boxers or Briefs: Cotton knit briefs. Gotta be cotton because the kitchen gets hot and I wouldn’t want a heat rash, ya know.
Die Hard or Terminator: Die Hard, of course! “Yippee-Ki-Yay, Motherfucker!”
Ford or Chevy: Fords Rule! (I said that just to piss Samson off. *cough*Chevy’s suck!*cough*
Steak or Chicken: Either if it’s cooked right.
Star Wars or Star Trek: Star Wars
Beer or Wine: Wine

What is your most cherished possession? My knife collection and my cookbook collection.
How do you feel about being the center of attention? Love it!
What makes you blush? Nothing, honey. That’s just the heat from my Viking stove.
How do you feel, generally, about the opposite sex? Love them. LOVE THEM. Especially this gorgeous brunette I knew in high school. Man, she was an angel. Too bad she wound up with a total dickhead who didn’t deserve to kiss the soles of her feet.
What is your worst habit? I’m bad about forgetting to return calls. I tend to procrastinate. Oh, and I suck at parking.
Do you have any irrational fears or phobias? Clothes shopping.
How do you think your exes would describe you? Too committed to my career and the long hours restaurants keep. And when I’m not cooking I’m talking about cooking…or thinking about cooking.
How deeply does your job / social role define you as a person? Deeply. I want to feed everyone. It’s genetic. My mom is the same way.
What’s your favorite smell? Remember that brunette I mentioned earlier? She owns a coffee shop and bakery in Divine, and a friend of mine brought me one of her fancy cupcakes in a gift box. I opened that box and this heavenly aroma of vanilla bean, hazelnut, and some exotic spice... My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Now I associate that smell with my memories of her.
What are you the most hopeless at? Understanding women. I think I need a woman who likes to cook as much as I do and then we might understand each other.
What would you never do, no matter the price? Bungee jumping. And cheating in a relationship. Never gonna happen, either one.
Find out what happens when Samson and Ivan encounter the woman who has haunted their dreams and fueled fantasies for decades

Excerpt from How Cassie Got Her Grind Back:
“Whatever you do, Samson, don’t give her the steely-eyed dominant stare. And what are you? A nervous thirteen-year-old girl calling her BFF for pointers on how to act around the boy she likes?”
Samson had called Ivan while waiting for Joseph and Bunny’s wedding to get started to let him know Cassie was in attendance. Samson watched as the woman of their dreams entered the hallway outside the suite Bunny had been holed up in for the last two hours.
Samson scowled at his phone and then put it back to his ear. Chuckling silently, Jack Warner looked over at him and lifted his chin inquiringly at the phone. Samson shook his head and looked down at the floor. “Lower your voice, man. I just wanted you to know she was here. I guess she’s one of Bunny’s bridesmaids or attendants. I didn’t know they were that close. Shit.” He wasn’t smooth like his brother, and the first thing he’d thought when he’d laid eyes on her was to call Ivan.
“When you get a chance, just slide on up to her and start a conversation with her. Don’t give her the stare.”
“What stare?”
“The one you give people who you want to do your bidding. Probably the same one you use when you want to beat on one of your poor masochists.”
“They’re not my ‘poor masochists,’ fucker,” he ground out as he walked a short distance down the hallway. “I only give them what they need, and I would think you’d know that by now since you know how to use Google. I’m not a monster.” Jack snorted in amusement and Samson stepped farther down the hall.
Ivan’s chuckle on the other end made him grind his teeth. “No, you’re a big squeez-y teddy bear. You got all that growling out of your system now? Take a deep breath and…just smile at her. Offer to get her a glass of champagne. Dance with her. Don’t say anything about the past, and for fuck’s sake, don’t tell her you like to spank naughty girls.”
Samson grinned, imaging for a split second how her lush bare butt cheek would feel under his hand. “At least not yet.”
“Just never in front of me, okay?”
“She’s in a mansion housing a BDSM club, and she’s friends with several subs. I think they’ve talked. So it shouldn’t come as any big surprise to her. Fine, I won’t say anything about my sadistic tendencies, okay?”
“And I wouldn’t say anything about attending the class reunion. Just let her be surprised.”
“I wasn’t going to since you need to be with us before I say anything about…you know.”
“Right. So just establish you’re the nice guy she remembers and you’re still single. And try not to give her the impression she’s in your sights.”
“Our sights.”
“Whatever. I’m not getting my hopes up until I get a green light from her. I have to go. My ganache is thickening.”
Gazing at her delicious form from the rear, he admired the sensual sway of her hips and the graceful curve of her bare back and neck as she moved past a window. “That’s not the only thing thickening. Later.”

I am reviewing Alyse Zaftig's The Panther's Baby. 

I found this story to be fast-paced, sexy, daring, and downright YUMMY! I loved the sweetness, the pleasure, and the shifter elements. It was hard to resist this opportunity to read another Alyse Zaftig story since her previous books were just as great. I think paranormal romance fans will ADORE The Panther's Baby. It is greatly written with desirable characters and a plot that is irresistible. 

Usually the whole instalove, instalust thing can be a bit much, but with shifters, I find it to fit just right because I picture them finding and loving their mates instantly thanks to their animal DNA so, yea, there is nothing wrong with the instalove thing in this book at all.

Netgalley eARC Review - Devil And The Deep by Julie Ann Walker!


Cocktail parties, political fundraisers, and charity events are Maddy Powers' way of life. But the daring man who appropriated her father's yacht a couple of months ago is still out there, somewhere, and she wants to pay him back for the scorching kiss they shared.

Behind his suave smile and ladykiller eyes, Bran Palladino carries a dark secret that keeps him from pursuing Maddy… even though he can't get her out of his head. But when Maddy is kidnapped as part of a grand scheme, it's time to put up or shut up… because Bran can't live without Maddy now. 


Want a book that is thrilling, exciting, full of angst and has great romance? Devil And The Deep by Julie Ann Walker is for you then. The story shocked me with where it took me. I was thrown into time, then bounced back and into a dangerous situation with memorable characters, suspense, action, and sizzling romance. Its full of surprises and lots of angst. 

You will really like Maddy. Strong, feisty, beautiful and stubborn while Bran is tough, mysterious, sexy, and dark enough to weaken your knees. He fights his attraction to Maddy but is is undeniable, hot, and too much and soon both are running from danger and giving into their HOT HOT HOT chemistry! Its a very enjoyable story that has a lot to offer a reader. You just don't know for sure where the author will take you, until you actually read it.

Netgalley ARC Review - Conquered Match (Coded For Love: Book 3) by Lynne Silver!


The Program: an organization of elite soldiers with superior strength, agility, and intellect. These men put their lives on the line to execute the government’s most dangerous missions. 

When soldier Ryan Lopez learns his beloved wife, Thea, has betrayed his team by going to the media and spilling Program secrets, he takes matters into his own hands and punishes her the only way he knows how—by seducing her until she’s begging for release. 

The more Ryan takes control of her body, the more he realizes he’s never fully understood Thea’s dark desires. And now that he’s had a taste, he doesn’t want to stop. Testing both their limits in a night of unbound passion, it will take every bit of Ryan’s strength to prove to the woman he loves that she is also his conquered match.


HOT HOT HOT!! OMG, how I enjoy this series! It is dark, dangerous, overwhelmingly sexy, and full of spark. Ryan and Thea, they BURN the pages in this story! I freaking squirmed like hell with this one. 

Lynne Silver has a real winner with her Coded For Love series. Enhanced soldiers and the women that fall in love with them...just YUM! Conquered Match is indeed, the perfect title to this book. Because that is EXACTLY what Ryan has to do with Thea. He takes, he conquers and boy, is it H-O-T!

Conquered Match gets a FIERY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its dark, sexy, thrilling. An absolute MUST READ!

A Witch In Time (Magic and Mayhem 3) by Robyn Peterman!


One of these things is not like the others—life threatening community theatre, wire hangers, chipmunks, tree-house sex-capades with a hot werewolf and head-shrinking with a porno-loving rabbit Shifter. 

Actually none of these things are even remotely like the others, but it’s my life and I’m going to make the pieces fit into a perfect puzzle—even if I have to shove it together and glue it with magic. 

New leaf, new leaf, new freakin’ leaf. 

Caring for people wasn’t in my repertoire until I landed in Assjacket, West Virginia. Falling in love wasn’t anywhere on my agenda. It’s messy. However, I’ve been told messy is what showers and therapy are for. I’m hoping that info is correct because Goddess knows I’m trying. 

Never until now have I been a witch that wanted it all—the guy, the job, the friends and the place called home. Now I just have to fix my slightly irresponsible and somewhat unstable witchy ways so I deserve it. 

I’m going for perfect…or at least a loose definition of the word. 

Messy…here I come.


Magic, Mayhem, fun, sexy good time...THAT is exactly what I got in A Witch In Time the third book in Robyn Peterman's Magic and Mayhem series. I am always eager to read one of Miss Peterman's books because I KNOW that she will deliver a book that is fun and full of laughs, outrageous things, and sexy alpha males. Heck, I grinned even before I started it because, again, I KNEW what was to come! 

I love Zelda and Mac! These two are combustible together and add in the fun and completely insane shifters, this book was a GUARANTEE win! I enjoyed the many array of shifters. Things are always popping up that will leave you rolling on the floor laughing, and shaking your head with the outrageous things that seem to come out of some of their mouths. It is pure fun and always a good time. I would absolutely LOOOOVE more in this series!

A Witch In Time gets a OUTRAGEOUSLY FUN FOUR SHOOTING STARS! This book will keep you giggling and smiling long after you read the book. Keep these books coming Robyn Peterman...I NEED MORE!

Netgalley ARC Review - Falling In Deeper (Wicked Lover 11) by Shayla Black!


A tragic past threatens to destroy a passionate future in this dangerously sexy new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wicked for You.

After a violent tragedy nearly destroyed her, Lily Taylor ran away, changed her name, and started over. When her deadly nemesis resurfaces to eliminate his loose end, she turns to the last man she should trust—a stranger with a history of violence and an intoxicating sexuality she can’t refuse…

Though strong-armed into locating Lily to help put away a drug lord, ex-con Stone Sutter isn’t anyone’s snitch. When he finds the terrified beauty, he vows to keep her safe—but he isn’t sure he has the strength to shield her from his own desires.

As an unquenchable fire sparks between them, Lily’s tormentor stalks ever closer, and she must overcome her darkest fear to survive. Can she trust the bond she and Stone have formed as they’re falling in deeper?


I never thought in a million years, that I would fall in love with an ex-con hero, but I did, and I know its ONLY thanks to Shayla Black! I don't think there is another author that could of created an ex-con who turned out to be the ABSOLUTE BEST hero... bottom line. Stone Sutter is the definition of both a bad boy and a true protector. And Lily, dang how her story had me just feeling so much empathy and sadness and I wanted her desperately to have her own Happily Ever After. Stone was gorgeous, stubborn, but surprisingly sweet, caring, a tad pushy when needed, and a wonderful endearing man. Lily is shy, and sweet and had an inner strength that I admired SO MUCH! She amazed me and I couldn't of thought of a better woman for Stone then Lily.

Falling In Deeper is the absolute BEST story so far in the Wicked Lover Series. I thought nothing could top Wicked For You, but I should of known that Miss Black would do it with flying colors. I am dead serious when I say, that Falling In Deeper knocked out Wicked For You and Axel. Stone stole my heart and Lily is my new favorite heroine! This book had ALL the feels. I cried for everything Lily went through and I sighed SOOOOOO FREAKING MUCH with Stone and how he treated Lily. This story is one of a kind and I am so honored to have had a chance to read and review this incredible story. Fans will fall head over heels for Falling In Deeper, no doubt about it!

Falling In Deeper gets a HEART FELT AND SEXY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! If I could give it a 100 stars, I would. In a heartbeat! This story is incredibly passionate, breath-taking, sexy, and about the best feeling book I have read in this series so far. Every book is amazing but Falling In Deeper had an extra special something that I can't even put into words. Well done Miss Black! I can hardly wait for the next book.

Netgalley ARC Review - One Night With The CEO by Mia Sosa!


After some disappointing dates, Karen Ramirez has concluded that great sex is for other people. Especially since medical school won't leave her much time for romance anyway. Then she runs into tall, dark, charming, and ridiculously wealthy Mark Lansing--and quickly reconsiders celibacy. Adding to temptation? Mark will be the best man at her sister's wedding and the nuptial destination is sultry Puerto Rico. Now this trip might just be sensory overload--or the perfect chance for Karen to find the groove she's never had.

For CEO Mark Lansing, his perfect match would be smart, sweet, and funny, with long legs and silky hair the color of dark chocolate. In short, someone a lot like Karen. But Mark's looking to settle down, while a relationship is the last thing on Karen's mind. So Mark proposes a plan: he and Karen will use their weekend in paradise to sizzling advantage--before downshifting to friendship. The only problem? Karen is all Mark can think of when he gets home. Now his most challenging negotiation will be for the one thing money can't buy . . .


God, how I enjoy a book with a sexy rich man and a hard working woman. But the first thing I noticed about the story was the very pretty cover. It just screams of a romance that will sweep you off your feet and just keep you melting and sighing long after its finished, and this book DEFINITELY delivered!

I loved Mark. He was charming, a bit arrogant, devastatingly good looking and SO, SO delicious. Karen is a independent, sexy nurse who isn't looking for forever and just thinks sex is a bit overrated. Mark wants Karen and not just for the night and comes up with a plan to win Karen over. Sparks fly, romance soars, and these two definitely proved that love is something these two cant deny. One Night With The CEO is SO worth reading again and again!

A SOARING FIVE SHOOTING STARS is what I give to this book. Mila Sosa is a talented writer with the knack for bringing a story to a sizzling, soaring peak with phenomenal characters and a scrumptious plot! 

Netgalley ARC Review - To Seduce A SEAL by Sara Jane Stone!


U.S. Navy SEAL Dante Raske is all about guarding his heart and serving his country, but now that he’s busted his knee on a mission, he needs something to keep his mind busy. Playing bodyguard for a sexy little country starlet until he’s cleared for duty? Just what the doctor ordered.

Chrissie Tate refuses to be a one-hit wonder. If she’s going to take care of her family, she can’t let herself get distracted—especially not by the hot as hell Navy SEAL hired to be her bodyguard. But when a crazed fan attacks, she changes her tune. She’ll keep Dante around…if he agrees to teach her self-defense.

Except their close-contact lessons quickly become steamy bedroom sessions. And it’s up to this Navy SEAL to save Chrissie’s career—and his heart—before their explosive passion consumes them both…


What a fabulous sizzling romance featuring a sexy SEAL and a gorgeous country star! To Seduce A SEAL was one heart-thumping, seductive, AWESOMELY written story. I loved how the author kept me eagerly turning the pages with her wonderful characters that had spunk, spirit, crackling chemistry and a great plot. I did not want to stop reading and was disappointed to see it end. I really LOOOOVED Dante and Chrissie. Their chemistry was off the charts H-O-T, and they each had terrific personalities that meshed well together.

To Seduce A SEAL is one of those stories that grab a hold of you and don't let go until the end, and once its over, you want to let it soak in for a while. The romance was truly beautiful and everything I hoped for. I definitely want to read more books by Miss Stone!

This incredible romance gets a SMOKING HOT FOUR SHOOTING STARS! It sizzles, it delights, and it features a sexy SEAL and a Country star...what more could one want?

Impulsive Destiny Tour stop with Review and Excerpt!

ID Banner




Tensions in the born vampire territory are high as intrigue and betrayal threaten to tear apart the main vampire council. In the center of it all is a woman who remembers nothing beyond the day before the initial Moon virus outbreak.
Lexi has been called crazy more than once in her life, so when she finds herself in a creek with no clue how she got there, she assumes she’s finally lost her mind. That is until she discovers her frightening heritage and ends up in the care of a sexy shapeshifter who refuses to accept that she’s too much trouble. As Lexi comes to terms with who she is, an unknown enemy is determined to use her as a weapon against her father. Will she end up being little more than a pawn in a madman’s scheme?
Zane has always been impulsive and somewhat irresponsible, knowing that as the youngest, his father doesn’t expect much from him. That is until his father’s position as leader of the lynx shapeshifters is threatened, and he issues Zane an ultimatum—find a mate or accept the mate his father has chosen for him. Zane has little hope of finding his true mate until he rescues a mysterious woman. He has no clue how she ended up in lynx territory—he only knows that Lexi is his, and he will do anything to protect her.

Impulsive Destiny Teaser 3

Impulsive Destiny Teaser 4.JPG


Another explosively tempting read in Cassandra Lawson's Moon Virus series! Impulsive Destiny was a real joy to read. I loved Lexi. And Zane, WOWZA, was he YUMMY! I absolutely adore the world that Miss Lawson created. The many types of paranormal creatures out there are amazing. I loved seeing some old faces and new ones too. And I REALLY liked the mystery behind Lexi. And the fact that she isn't 100% sure about her heritage either, was a fantastic surprise!

The chemistry between Zane and Lexi was undeniable and yummy as all get out. I loved the danger and the even the violence. Its full of action, lots of sizzling passion and yummy sex! And the plot...perfect!

Impulsive Destiny gets a WILD FIVE SHOOTING STARS! These books get better and better. I love the unexpected and I feel Miss Lawson delivers on that in every book. A DEFINITE MUST READ!
