It was Evangeline Wyatt’s dream to work for the NFL so she certainly didn’t mind starting at the bottom with the Miami Thunder.  Her current position is titled ‘team behavior manager’ though in all honesty Evan believes the job is nothing more than glorified babysitting.  Evan figures she did something bad in another life because her current charge is NFL darling Hank Ryder, a total pain in the ass and Evan’s ex.

 

The team is in New York for a game so of course Hank insists on going out late to a BDSM club of all things and Evan is forced to accompany him to keep him out of trouble.  A problem with her entry into the club is solved by a hot stud that comes to her aid.  Evan quickly realizes she’s playing with fire because the guy is none other than rival player Nick Aitken of the New York Vikings.  Surviving the night without incident is a close thing since the chemistry between them is electric.  Thank god Hank was too occupied to notice and behaved.

 

When Evan and Nick meet again she’s not on the clock and their time together is explosive.  From then on they steal every moment they can to be together.  In the meantime her working relationship with Hank is becoming more and more contentious and unpleasant.  Between a career with the Thunder and the love of a Viking Evan’s in hot water.  Something’s gotta give.

 

There’s a whole lot of scorching hot love in The Billionaire’s Dare.  This Dare to Love story features a clever plotline, witty dialogue, and honest emotions between the characters.  Sexy, erotic encounters are balanced against ugly, offensive confrontations and make a superb drama come alive. The Billionaire’s Dare is a truly pleasurable read. Enjoy.

Jeremy Porter and Owen Finn grew up with very different home lives, yet that never stopped them from being the best of lifelong friends.  When Jeremy’s parents found him looking at male nudie magazines at fourteen they disowned him and shuttled him off to an alcoholic aunt.  Owen on the other hand spent his childhood in the arms of loving parents and a houseful of siblings.

 

Both found success in their chosen fields, Jeremy as an acclaimed cartoonist and artist while Owen started his own construction company.  As adults they are also known for their prolific sex lives.  Ironically Jeremy got a name for being bisexual rather than gay.  His best friend is well known as a one night only ladies man.

 

With all the literal notches on his bedpost Jeremy never slept with the one person he truly wanted, Owen.  He refused to make any advances in fear of destroying their friendship or the love of the Finn family.

 

Then, out of the blue on Owen’s thirty-fifth birthday he arrives on Jeremy’s doorstep and backs his best friend into the corner with sexual advances.  Believing it’s a one-time event Jeremy relents.  Their one night of incredible passion changes everything between them.  Owen wants more.  Jeremy fears of losing what he treasures most in life if they continue, yet Owen is fulfilling every dream he’d ever had.  Which way can he turn except into Owen’s open arms? But for how long before everything crashes and burns?

 

Curious will absolutely make your toes curl.  Such passion and emotion blaze as Jeremy finds himself between a rock and a hard place trying to realize he can have it all with Owen.  If he finds the strength that Owen has.  Author R.G. Alexander knows exactly how to write an honest, sensitive erotic love story.  The pages burn with such heat and the emotional drama rings true.

Identical twin sisters Sue Wanda ‘Swan’ and Sarah Anderson had an extremely unique upbringing.  Separated as young girls, Swan was raised by her Special Ops/survivalist father and Mafia princess assassin stepmother, while Sarah lead a gypsy lifestyle with their grifter mother.  Finally reunited as teens they had difficulty reconnecting until a misunderstanding over a boyfriend almost destroyed their bond completely.

 

Living on her own in Houston, Swan works as a waitress at a strip club to support herself and pay for a second master’s degree.  Swan is unaware that she’s being guarded, watched over by Miguel ‘Smoke’ Santos, Master at Arms for the Austin chapter of the Iron Horse MC  Her protection began weeks ago because her mother stole something belonging to the Iron Horse MC, something the Russian mob wants and something men in Vegas are interested in.

 

Innocent of any involvement in her mother’s actions, Swan is embroiled in the mess because of her mother and because Sarah is engaged to Beach, President of the Iron Horse MC based in Austin.  Everyone is aware that Sarah is trying to find their parent, more importantly very few know that Sarah has an identical twin sister.

 

Trying to keep Swan safe and ignorant of what’s happening becomes impossible so Smoke is told to bring her to Austin.  Already half in love with the sweet, virginal twin Smoke’s feelings are returned as Swan falls under his spell.  Everyone is after Swan to use her for leverage of one kind or another, except Smoke.  All he cares about is keeping his woman safe and well loved.  As the dangers mount their love becomes stronger.  Unfortunately powerful loving won’t protect them forever.

 

Exquisite Trouble brings a raw, gritty, and brutal world to light where innocence and purity walk hand in hand with death.  Swan is an enigma, virginal, and genuine, yet because of her upbringing she can name, clean, and shoot any weapon you hand her.  Smoke and the world of Iron Horse MC he inhabits is a place few could survive.  The language is rough and the people even more so.  The Iron Horse MC novels are original and entirely fascinating.  A character driven suspense filled tale Exquisite Trouble blends a pulse pounding drama with a believable romance.  It’s not tender, it’s erotic and it’s purely addicting.

It feels as though the entire world of criminals and cutthroats have Swan and Sarah Anderson on their radar.  Swan and her lover Miguel ‘Smoke’ Santos are heading to Denver after getting a tip from the local Iron Horse MC that the twins’ mother and Sarah have been sighted in Colorado.  It’s also a fast learning curve for Swan to get acclimated to the life of someone in a relationship with a biker, especially one as high up in the Iron Horse hierarchy.  Loving Smoke has been the easy part on her heart and the hard part for her independent nature.

 

Finding out that the twins’ mother stole a huge amount of money and a trailer full of weapons explains why everyone wants her so badly.  There’s no love lost between the girls and their mother, but she is their mother so finding her before anyone else is imperative.  Even worse Sarah is still out there alone trying to find her.

 

False rumors endanger Swan after arriving in town and meeting the Denver chapter which forces them to accept the fact that there are traitors in their midst. Swan and Smoke must find her mother and Sarah as well as expose the guilty within the club.  Then they can explore their intense feelings for each other and take things to the next level.  Easy, right?

 

Suspenseful for the start, Exquisite Danger takes readers on a heart pounding romantic adventure.  Intense characterizations continue to develop in the second Iron Horse MC Novel series.  Swan and Smoke have a fierce relationship, passionate and erotic, while at the same time rough and raw.  The dialogue is gritty and realistic for the biker lifestyle.  Exquisite Danger is an exciting love story, but definitely not your average romance.

Luna Black is a woman with no past and at this point, doesn’t have really great aspects for the future either.   She is one of the best at discovering encryptions at the Alien and Earth Defensive Alliance, or the AEDA as most refer to it.  Many years ago, Luna was in an accident which supposedly wiped out all of her memories.  The only thing she has to show for her past is a strange tattoo, which appeared on her back.  Not even Luna’s talent with encryptions has helped her figure out what it means.  Luna was recently brought into a tangled case, which involved several of the AEDA agents and their mates, and now Luna is in serious danger.  The question is, who is after her and why?

 

Kristjan, an Ahnjel, and Volker, a Vhampire, have been friends and partners at the AEDA for a while now.  For the last several years, they have been doing individual assignments for the company and haven’t been around the office.  One of the strongest ties that Kristjan and Volker have is that they are destined to share a mate, but to date, neither has met this woman.  Surprisingly, they are both home together and have some free time when an assignment comes up to protect a fellow employee.  Kristjan and Volker decide to volunteer for the assignment, which is something that will change their lives forever.

 

Luna is scared, but willing to allow two agents she has never met be her bodyguards based on the reliance of an agent Luna trusts.  She is amazed at the instant attraction she feels for both Kristjan and Volker.  All of them are overwhelmed as the truths come out, first that Luna Black just might be her real name as that is the name that marks the mate for her guards, and second that instead of human, Luna might just be something altogether different.  Determined to discover the truth and make sure their mate is beyond safe, Kristjan and Volker work with other agents and Luna’s slowly returning memory to find out just what her past is and why she was cast out in the human realm.  What is discovered shows that the danger to Luna was much closer than anyone would have guessed and that the danger that has been plaguing the AEDA and its agents is much deeper than expected.  Piece by piece, the puzzle is put together and betrayals are revealed.  The outcome not only gives Luna, Kristjan, and Volker a chance at the love they are just discovering, but it will also greatly change their lives because some of Luna’s secrets were big ones.

 

When a woman with no past and who is scared of the future meets the two men who are destined to be hers, the outcome is an overwhelming passion and a discovery no one ever expected. Luna’s Lovers takes Luna, Kristjan, and Volker on a madcap journey which involves major betrayals, danger and, of course, a deep love, which overcomes all of that.  I loved the stunned realization that all three came to as they first met, and their true relationship became known.  After that, what caught me was just how strongly Kristjan and Volker worked to not only protect Luna, but worked to discover just what had been done to her, who she really was, and how to make sure she was never in danger again.  I loved just how their journey was rolled out and especially how bright their future was as the book ended, especially when shown against just how bleak Luna viewed her future as the book started.  Luna’s Lovers takes you on quite the ride from beginning to end, yet the solid backbone of passion and strength makes this love story an enjoyable night’s reading.
