How were they supposed to know that one night would change everything?

Devyn has life all mapped out. She just needs to accomplish one more thing before graduating college and becoming a full-fledged adult—lose her virginity. And who better to assist her than her best friend, Riley?

Riley is the self-proclaimed king of fling. His college years have been filled with meaningless hookups until the one night that ruined him for all other women. The one night he spends with his best friend, Devyn. Right before he screws it all up.

Balls to the wall, baby!

Now five years later, Riley is determined to atone for his mistakes and prove that he can be the man that Devyn deserves. Little does he know that Devyn’s been keeping a secret from him all these years. A big secret. Now he has to figure out how to win back the only girl he’s ever loved while navigating the pitfalls of her unexpected revelation.

Deal Breakers is filled with lots of laughs, a sexy romance, and an overflowing swear jar.

"What should we toast to?”

I think about it for a second. “To new friends?”

With an unbelievably sexy grin he asks, “What if I want to explore being more than friends?”

I roll my eyes. “Do you ever give up?”

I find myself staring at his dimples as he replies, “Not when I see something I want.”

Laura's passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story.

Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!


Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury's chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she's not writing or watching HGTV, she's reading anything she can get her hands on. She's a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires or cowboys!

They say my father was mad, so corrupted by evil and tainted by sin that he did what he did. I came home to find them all dead; their throats savagely cut. My sisters only five and eight were gone as well as my brother who was twelve. My mother too lay butchered in her marriage bed. The bed her children were born in...- 

After young Rose Baines discovers the savage murders of her family by her mad, incestuous father, she is plunged into a nightmare of hell and incarcerated in two madhouses. In time, she is helped to obtain a position as governess at Blackstone House. Nothing is as it seems for Blackstone House, and its inhabitants have numerous secrets. Amid the unimaginable horror there is love - which comes at a terrible price. 

The House on Blackstone Moor is the first novel in Carole Gill's Blackstone Vampires Series. It is both a tale of the eternal struggle between good and evil, and a story of love that strives to prevail, despite all odds.

What a fantastic and horrifying read. Carole Gill pulled me in from the very beginning and her writing abilities had me feeling the suffering and grief that Rose was experiencing. This is more than just a vampiric tale; its good versus evil down to the core. This is a superbly written story line, captivating world building with well developed characters. I am ready to continue this demonic roller coaster ride.

I live in Yorkshire. I love history and reading. That is why much of my fiction is historically based. Most days you will find me writing or planning what I am going to write next. My husband does occasionally manage to drag me away from my laptop, though it isn't easy.

An incubus who feeds off the sexual desires of others, Roth de Lis has never been denied the pleasure of a woman’s body...until now. Lilah, once a warrior maiden in the service of a goddess, languishes on Earth after being cast out from the slopes of Mount Olympus.

Lilah will do anything to return home to Olympus, including betraying Roth. As she spins her web of lies, Roth begins a slow, wicked seduction that eventually threatens to consume them both.

Roth made his way back through the VIP room and into the dance area. Half a dozen women had approached him before he could make it to the door, slipping him phone numbers he’d never use and telling him names he didn’t care to know. One in particular got a little too frisky, trying to corral him into a kiss before he gently set her aside and continued making his way out.

He was only interested in one woman’s kiss, but Lilah had decided he wasn’t worth her time. And she’s right. Roth knew he didn’t have anything to offer one such as her, but he wanted her all the same. Want her. The incubus echoed his thoughts back to him, as if it were puzzling over the same riddle—how to make her… What? Make her love me? Impossible.

The hope at such a fairy tale died in his breast as he remembered how she’d turned from him after he revealed his terrible secret. He’d done so much to so many that he would forever be tainted. The incubus would never leave. To do so meant death for the both of them. She was repulsed by his evil, as she should be.

He would have sighed had he been the sort, but instead he pushed out the front doors, nearly breaking them off their hinges. He noted his empty car with a total lack of surprise. Lilah had a problem following directions, as he well knew. Her bullheaded nature made him smile to himself.

The he saw her. She stood as if frozen, somehow dumbstruck as a male slung his arm around her and groped her ass.

In an instant, Roth decided he would kill the male for touching her, but first he would make him suffer.

Liberty by Kim Iverson Headlee {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

 

 

Liberty
by Kim Iverson Headlee 
Publication date December 16, 2014
Genre: Historical Romance

 

VBDiva

 

They hailed her “Liberty,” but she was free only to obey—or die.

Betrayed by her father and sold as payment of a Roman tax debt to fight in Londinium’s arena, gladiatrix-slave Rhyddes feels like a wild beast in a gilded cage. Celtic warrior blood flows in her veins, but Roman masters own her body. She clings to her vow that no man shall claim her soul, though Marcus Calpurnius Aquila, son of the Roman governor, makes her yearn for a love she believes impossible.

Groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps and trapped in a politically advantageous betrothal, Aquila prefers the purity of combat on the amphitheater sands to the sinister intrigues of imperial politics, and the raw power and athletic grace of the flame-haired Libertas to the adoring deference of Rome’s noblewomen.

When a plot to overthrow Caesar ensnares them as pawns in the dark design, Aquila must choose between the Celtic slave who has won his heart and the empire to which they both owe allegiance. Knowing the opposite of obedience is death, the only liberty offered to any slave, Rhyddes must embrace her arena name—and the love of a man willing to sacrifice everything to forge a future with her.

They met with a clash of arms as fierce as any bout between seasoned men. The veteran Hyperosa landed her blows more accurately, but Ruth was by far the more swift and agile, causing some of her opponent’s strikes to miss. The rest, Ruth blocked with her gladius in an impressive show of strength.

As the match progressed, the crowd warmed to the fiery Pict.

The warmth Marcus felt for her he attributed to a different reason.

He turned toward her owner, who was perched on his usual seat in the governor’s box, leaning forward to rest elbows on the rail and chin atop his steepled fingers.

“Name your price, Jamil.” His voice felt husky, and he cleared his throat. He wasn’t sure how much raw desire he’d managed to bleed from his tone.

Jamil’s gaze never left the arena. “You must speak with Hyperosa’s owner, Aquila.” As the women paused for breath after an aggressive exchange, he smiled smugly at Marcus. “Ruth is not for sale.”

That didn’t surprise him, but it was worth a try nonetheless.

The bout might have lasted longer, but Ruth risked disengaging to dive for the spear. The whip slithered free of the spear’s shaft, and Ruth flung the barbed missile at Hyperosa, who couldn’t raise her shield high enough to deflect it. The spearpoint embedded into her right shoulder between the fringes.

With a startled outcry, Hyperosa dropped to her knees, releasing her gladius and clawing at the quivering shaft with her left hand. Her face contorted with agony as she ripped the weapon out. Blood gushed from the wound. Ruth wasted no time in claiming victory, grabbing a fistful of her opponent’s flaxen hair and thrusting her gladius under Hyperosa’s chin. In that pose they froze, facing the governor’s box.

“Definitely not for sale,” Jamil stated.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review when I signed up and was selected for the book tour. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions are my own.

What an amazing historical romance! In this book the author via her unique story telling transports us to ancient Rome. Rhyddes is sold by her father and she ends p being trained to be a gladiatrix. She falls for a Roman man even though this is an impossible relationship as she maintains her Celtci heritage and he is a noble man. This was a well written and developed story with beautiful and strong characters. You will feel a range of emotions throughout this fantastic book. I continue to enjoy reading this author's books as they continue to transport me to different times and places.

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet.

Kim is a Seattle native and a direct descendent of twentieth-century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim’s novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband’s ancestor, the seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.

For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles, and other novels. She has been a published novelist since 1999, beginning with the original editions of Dawnflight (Sonnet Books, Simon & Schuster, ISBN 0671020412) and Liberty (writing as Kimberly Iverson, HQN Books, Harlequin, ISBN 0373771347).
