King and Pup are back in this Limited Edition Box Set


King: Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from. A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex or a combination of all three. King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go. Tyrant: I. Remember. Everything. But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed. Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know. I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day. He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him. Even if that means marrying someone else…

Vegas Love Blurb

Hollywood actress, Ashlyn Roberts, just had the worst week of her life. Her ex released a sex tape of them and just when she was convinced her current boyfriend was a keeper for standing by her side, he breaks up with her at a friend’s wedding. She’s planning to drown her sorrows in booze when she meets a sexy stranger as she’s leaving the wedding and they end up in Vegas, married.

Cash Crawford is offered a dream job working with his brother as a junior talent agent. He’ll put his shiny new law degree to good use and make a bunch of money in the process. His first task is simple: Keep Ashlyn Roberts out of trouble and don’t sleep with her.

Which might be kind of tough, since they definitely consummated their Vegas wedding.

Will this one-night stand end in the quickie divorce they promised each other? Or will they realize they got lucky in love?

Spotlight: Royal Marriage Market by Heather Lyons

Received from InkSlingerPR

Received from InkSlingerPR


Every decade, the world’s monarchs and their heirs secretly convene to discuss global politics and social issues—and arrange marriages between kingdoms.

Elsa may be the Hereditary Princess of Vattenguldia, but she finds the entire situation archaic and unsavory. While she wants what’s best for her country, she isn’t about to jump into an unwanted relationship—let alone a marriage—with a virtual stranger. Of course, her feelings matter little to her parents, whose wheeling and dealings over trade pacts and alliances achieved at her expense begin the moment they set foot in California for the Summit. So when a blindingly handsome royal runs into her, she doesn’t hesitate to tell him there’s no way she’s marrying him.

Christian is all too happy to agree: no marriage. As the Hereditary Grand Duke of Aiboland, his main goal is to get through the summit without a bride being foisted on him. Which is why he suggests they help each other field potential intendeds. As Christian slowly gets to know Elsa, though, he realizes they have a lot more in common than just their feelings about the Royal Marriage Market. Only he can’t fall for her, because royal or not, they’re not meant for each other.

Elsa and Christian will have to evaluate matters of the heart verses those of state and crown, and decide whether or not tradition trumps love.

Review: Fighting for Devlin by Jessica Lemon

Title: Fighting for Devlin
Series: Lost Boys #1
Author: Jessica Lemon
Publisher: Loveswept
Publication Date:

Rating: 2.5/5

Synopsis from Goodreads

Devlin Calvary makes his own luck. Orphaned as a young child, he was taken in by a crew of bookies and gamblers—and they became his family. They’re the reason Dev’s running a trendy bistro, living in a high rise, and enjoying the good life with a string of women who never ask for too much. Until, one night, he finds out how much it hurts to trust the wrong people.

Rena Lewis sticks to the straight and narrow, determined not to slip up again . . . like the terrible night of partying four years ago that ended in tragedy. A waitress at Oak & Sage, she knows that sleeping with her boss is not a smart move. But when Dev shows up on her doorstep, beat up and clearly shaken, Rena’s not about to turn him down . . . or kick him out of bed.

Dev reawakens something primal within her—a need to go wild. And Rena soon finds out that the heart she’d sealed away years ago still has the power to fight for love.


I’ve read a lot of books recently because they have been promoted as being similar to some of my favourite authors, with that in mind I don’t know if I have been overly critical in my judgement of the stories because I have a pre-conceived notion of the writing style expected based on my favourite authors (you understand what I’m trying to stay right??) Well lesson well and truly learned LOL

Fighting for Devlin has intriguing characters where events have shaped them and placed them behind self-imposed barriers. However, I have to say I didn’t fully connect with the characters and therefore, it is this aspect that affected my overall enjoyment of the story.  Jessica does build an incredible plot that is both fast paced and thought-provoking so it was just my personal connection to the characters that was the main problem :)

Told in dual first person narrative with alternating chapters from Rena, the ‘good girl’ waitress and Devlin, the ‘bad boy’ restaurant owner. However, I did feel it was Devlin’s character development that was the heart of the story.

Incidents on both sides are hinted at through the narrative allowing the reader to jump to conclusion and therefore, fear the worse. So when the revelations happen they do feel a little anti-climatic following the dramatic build-up. Especially with the way Rena is filled with misplaced guilt and regret. Personally, I found Rena a little immature and naive,  While Devlin seems to be caught in a life to pay for his fathers follies. With links to organised crime and gambling addiction being woven into the plot. The narrative takes into consideration the addiction gambling can cause – the continual quest for the next big win dominating all rational thought. While I have no experience with gambling it was easily to relate it to the personal experience I have had with other forms of addiction, seeing it control a person’s life to the exclusion of everything else.

For me, Fighting for Devlin focuses on how events in your life can freeze you into being a shell of who you actually are. It took being together for Devlin and Rena to melt the ice holding them in place so they are able to move forward together.

Rating: 3/5

Synopsis from Goodreads

They’re friends online – but can they be more in real life?

Writer Tara McFadden has been friends with artist and drummer Hector Fernandez for years, long before his band became famous on reality TV – yet they’ve never met in person. They finally have a chance to connect offline when they’re both sent to Comic-Con to promote the graphic novel they collaborated on.

Hector’s secretly been in love with Tara for as long as he can remember, and once they meet, she sees him in a new light. All the years of longing lead to an incredible night of passion after one of his concerts, but neither is sure if their online relationship can translate into a real life romance – or if this will ruin their friendship forever.

Over four crazy days at Comic-Con, Hector and Tara must decide if they want a future together. But when their story seems to be over, it’s up to Hector’s entire band to make sure he and Tara get their happy ending.

I’ve had this series on my radar for quite some time, more since starting the comic book club in school. Yes I know it’s a weird reason but that is me for you 😀

Firstly, More Than Comics is an unbelievably quick read, I was surprised it was such a short book. Saying that it doesn’t lack for action and characterisation within the narrative.

Not having read the first book, More Than Music, I can honestly say it doesn’t matter as the main characters are different. the cross-over points between the series are quickly recapped and explained for people like myself who are new to the series.

The characters were well-rounded and a connection to them was easy to form. Although the relationship speeds along it honestly doesn’t matter because the length of time Tara and Hector have known each other outweighs any thoughts of insta-anything. Hector carries quite a bit of emotional baggage stemming particularly from his mexican heritage and deportation of his parents at a young age. In all honesty I didn’t fully understand his issues of abandonment and feelings of inadequacy, this did not diminish my feelings toward Hector at all.

I really enjoyed the way in which the plot played out with fate stepping in to guide Tara to where she should be and what she should be doing. The importance of friends was very well portrayed within More Than Comics.

Even more than the characters I think I loved the setting within ComicCon for this story – the workshops, the fans and most of all the amazing cosplay. I wish there were actual photos of the brilliant costumes described within More Than Comics.

Elizabeth does an amazing job of setting the background for the other books in the series. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for this motley group of friends.
