Landry Michaels, lead enforcer for the KinKaid pack has a secret. Well…make that more than one. He’s in love with the alpha’s sister, Rosa, and his best friend, Kaleb. Wouldn’t be so bad if having either of them was in the realm of possibility. Landry’s past, and his present, contain one too many stains, making him a bad fit for the pack’s beauty. And when it comes to Kaleb… The fact the male is straight is only the beginning of why he’s “hands off”.

Kaleb Dalton is a male who has it all. A great family. A job that allows him to work every day with his best friend, Landry. Everything should be great, right? Except for the fantasies about his partner that plague his days, and the desires for Rosa that taunt him in his dreams at night. Two people, if he had half a brain, who should not be on his short list for lovers. As a male who’s earned his reputation as a player, settling down with Rosa is out of the question. As for Landry…? Kaleb’s heterosexual, born and breed from one of the top families in the pack—so what the hell is the other male doing in his daydreams?

Ever since she was a little girl, Rosa Kinkaid has had Landry and Kaleb’s attention. But it was never anything serious. They were friends. Besides, there has always been plenty of time for her to choose a lover—a mate. Her family needed her, and they came first. Until now...

Rosa's going into heat.

But that's not their only problem. The KinKaid and Gregorson pack are on the verge of war. And there are long-buried family secrets, feelings, and hidden desires rising to the surface along with Rosa’s heat. Some will be shocking and others more disturbing than any of them are prepared to handle.

Hated her body’s betrayal by how quickly it became aroused, especially these past couple of weeks. Her heat was rising too soon. Yet, whether she was ready or not, Rosa wouldn’t be able to hide her condition or refuse the desire to mate for too much longer. But until then, she would fight its lure with every ounce of resistance she could muster. And for as long as possible.

Her mate would be chosen when Rosa deemed it time, not because she was forced to do so by lust.

“What’s going on?” Rosa asked, finally able to kick her diaphragm and voice box back into action. “Is Evin okay?”

“These two ransacked the alpha’s home earlier,” Landry stated. “We caught them before they managed to cross back over to their grounds.”

Rosa growled and shot the thugs a look that said she was about two seconds from clawing their eyes out if her twin was harmed. “And my brother?”

“He’s fine.” This time Kaleb spoke up. “It was Mason he was concerned about. He’d gone missing, and for a while there, Evin believed these bastards had him.”

“Oh, my God.” Rosa closed her eyes. Evin had to have been frantic. His distress must have been what she’d sensed while she was sleeping, and why he’d been too distracted to answer her call. She lifted her eyelids and fixed her gaze on the enforcers. “But he’s okay as well?”

Kaleb nodded. “Mason just got home. Doesn’t look as if his absence had anything to with these two.” He gave a slight yank on the Halo. His prisoner snarled and grasped at the stricture around his throat. “When we left, it looked like the alpha and his mate were about to have a serious…talk—if you know what I mean.” Kaleb gave her a lopsided grin and tugged on his prisoner, towing him forward to the enforcer’s SUV.

“Probably not the best time for a visit,” Kaleb added as he made his way around her.

“What are you doing out here in the middle of the night?” Landry shoved his captive in the same direction Kaleb had traveled.


What is the name of the weapon Landry uses to subdue his prisoner?

About Lea Barrymire

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Victoria is a business owner, a friend and a succubus, the latter being something she despises with her whole heart. As she works to free others like her from the daily need to feed from sexual partners, she stumbles across her mate. Now she’s fighting destiny and the call of his lust, refusing to sate her need on the one male made for her.

Dominick is a technowizard used to living his life his way. When he arrives at a business meeting and senses his mate, he’s intrigued. When she slams walls up around herself and refuses to even look at him, he goes on the prowl. He uses her sex phone business to get her attention, but can he keep her on the line long enough to capture her heart?

Purchase Link: Ellora’s Cave


Dominick knew the moment that she started feeding off his energy. The magical pull was slight but still there in the back of his mind. He couldn’t stop from smiling when her face finally relaxed and a beautifully peaceful look descended. She’d been distant and cool when first materializing in his mind. Now that he was feeding her, he could feel her loosening up, releasing some of the control she had on their session and her mind.

Moving his hands up under the dress was a taste of delicious torture. He could feel her smooth skin under his palms, feel her heat, but could only imagine what she looked like. Were her legs long enough to wrap around his waist if he hoisted her against the wall? Would they look pale against his tanned skin? Did she have any freckles on her ivory skin, or was it creamy and unblemished? He groaned, his imagination fueling his thoughts, feeding his desire to unwrap her like a present. He wanted to push the fabric off her legs and catch a glimpse of the prize he was after, but the longer he waited the better it would be.

He watched her face as he stroked both hands up along her legs. He stopped at her knees and skimmed his palms back down to her ankles, lightly running his fingers over her skin. He grinned as she shivered under his ministrations. He did the circuit again, up slowly along the outside of her calf then back down to her ankles. The feel of goose bumps under his touch made him want to shout in triumph. She was reacting to the session even if she didn’t want to.

Shae Shannon "Always and Forever" Blog Tour

Genre: Erotic Paranormal Menage Romance
Flame rating: Scorching
Released: 6/6/2013
Publisher: Siren BookStrand
Word count: 54K

Tour long Giveaway:

4 eBook sets of Decadent Delights series


Shae Shannon was born in California where she lived until the age of 13. Her family decided to uproot and move to a small town in Oklahoma. It was fate, Karma, or coincidence that had put both Shae and her future husband on the paths of destiny and love. She spotted him in the back of a pickup truck while cruising town, his hot sexiness capturing her attention and her heart. One introduction later and she knew that he was her soul mate. Dustin was also from California, and had grown up only 30 miles from her.

After marriage, Dustin joined the Army. They spent 9 years in northern New York and 4 years in Georgia. He served 3 tours overseas, and numerous stateside training exercises. It was during the long, stressful, lonesome deployments that Shae found she could escape into imagination and majestically teleport into juicy books. Her most prized gift came in the form of a kindle, sent from her husband in Iraq. She quickly filled her digital library, and adds to it every week.

They are blessed with three kids ages 16, 10, and 5. Two dogs, a hamster, and a fish make for a chaotic crazy daily routine that Shae handles like a pro, and with a lot of humor.

Needing to branch out more, Shae picked up her laptop and began to write, allowing her boisterous imagination to fly. After what seemed like an eternity, she finally created her first novel that soon became published by Siren Publishing. She was finally on the path of her dreams of becoming an author.

Shae currently lives Oklahoma, where the tea is sweet, the grass is green, and people still say ma’am and thank you. Every summer, they load up the family and head for the lake for swimming and fishing. There is not a water park or swimming pool in the world that could ever compare to a rope swing and a floaty. The only thing that will change is that Shae will be scribbling and writing as she floats on the water and works on her tan.

When she runs into the man of her dreams, her libido goes into overdrive. She has finally found someone that is a hot, mouthwatering, pantie-twisting party of orgasms wrapped up in a sexy hunk of a man who just happens to be a vampire. Just when things start to heat up, someone wants to sacrifice her. Freakin’ figures. Gabriel Jacobs has been waiting centuries for his one and only mate. He must work to capture her heart, while protecting her from an ancient evil vampire with a self-made Frankenstein army. With his growing need to claim and protect her, their destiny is on the line. Can this be their beginning of eternity?

Book Two: Always and Forever

An alpha wolf, and an alpha panther—both of which are hot, sexy, brick walls of ooh-la-la wrapped up in "yes please, give me more"—decide to pursue Giselle Shalay, things explode in a supernova of desire and need. She is torn between what her body craves and what her mind protests. She is a free-spirited, independent witch who could never succumb to the role of an obedient, mindless, submissive wife. Aiden Grey refuses to share Giselle, whether Brandon Knight is meant to mate her or not. Brandon tries to show him reason, but any discussions end up in blows. When push comes to shove, he turns to his pack and declares war against the panthers in a fight to win her hand.

Can they come to terms with what fate has dealt and work together in convincing Giselle that her place is with them, or will egos and misconceived ideas keep destiny from joining their hearts forever?

Buy Links: Bookstrand


Brandon spotted her from across the room. He was thunderstruck and rendered paralyzed. She was the most magically, erotically, sensually, gorgeous woman he had ever laid eyes on. Her movements were like a spell, weaving around her in a web of delight. When he was able to pick his chin up off the floor, he darted in her direction. A low rumble oscillated in the caverns of his chest, threatening to exit in a roar. Mine.

Giselle let go. Dancing was more than fun to her. It was a way of life. Her witch heritage used dance for many spells and rituals. It was part of her being, allowing her to shimmy and sway all stresses away. She was barely aware of the body that had pressed up against her from behind. The movements coming from her esoteric dance partner fueled the fire that had cast inside of her. She ground backward, against the steel structure who met her sway for glorious sway. She dipped down, entwining her arms as she went to touch the floor and arch her way back up. Without skipping a beat, she was turned and embraced in the cage of enormous arms. Her surprise was evident, but instead of her stopping or freezing momentarily, her mouth curved into a flirtatious grin at the violet-eyed, sexy hunk of meat holding her. She began testing him, intensifying her moving and curving against his body. She fluttered her way down his towering length, keeping her face a breath away from his body until she reached his crotch. Giselle lingered there for a moment, continuing her grinding to the beat of the song, before slowly making her ascent. A feral look flashed in his eyes.

After her mother’s sudden death, Ryanne Myers is home again. It has been fifteen years since she escaped Mount Pleasant and everyone and everything in it. Now she must oversee the closing of her mother’s affairs.

The only bright spot is Ryanne’s blossoming friendship with boarder CJ Richter. Ryanne senses that CJ just might be her soul mate, but the handsome excavator is somewhat of a standoffish loner.

After an unthinkable event, Ryanne’s life spins out of control, and she must deal not only with her grasping, selfish sister, but also a manipulative, wannabe suitor. CJ offers Ryanne a way out, but at what price? Beware: Everyone has secrets in Mount Pleasant…And they enjoy them!

Drama, romance, mystery, and murder, all centered around a little town. THE GOOD SISTER is an outstanding debut novel from Amielise Gable.

5 Stars TOP PICK Night Owl Romance


Opening the front door, she found herself standing across from the stranger, who wore a black knit cap pulled down low on his forehead. His eyes hidden behind mirrored sunglasses, and his body shrouded by a heavy black jacket. 

“I’m looking for Miss Myers,” he informed her.

She detected an ever so slight trace of an indefinable accent in his deep voice. “That’s me. You must be from the excavation team.”

“I’m the owner. My name is CJ Richter.”

She noticed how large his hand was when she shook it and how he towered over her. “Come on in. I guess you’re going to be my boarder for the next few months.”

“Well, Miss, it will be just for the minimum amount of time it takes to finish the job.”

He was just as anxious to leave as she was to get back to London and away from this mess. Good, she thought. Maybe that means he’ll finish the job ahead of schedule.

“Would you like a cup of coffee…ah…CJ?”

“That would be great, Miss.”

He followed her into the kitchen and she took his jacket and hung it over the back of a chair, but he waited until she offered him a seat before he sat. As she turned to place a steaming mug of black coffee in front of him, she caught her breath. He had removed his sunglasses. Not only were his eyes green, but ethereal. She had never seen anyone with eyes like his. They were spellbinding, and she wondered, if she looked long enough into his unique eyes, could they hypnotize her?

Quickly, she recovered and turned her attention back to the coffee before he noticed her stare. Or had he already noticed?

Danica Avet "Caption This" Tour

Woot! It's a fun tour, in honor of Danica Avet's new release, Primal Flavor, Book Three in the Cajun Heat Series. When you get a taste of Book One, Primal Song, from the excerpt in this post, I think you'll want to buy all three books!
Make sure to read the instructions for the Caption This contest, and have at it!

Primal Flavor

Series: Cajun Heat
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Flame rating: Sorching
Released: 7/2/2013
Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Word count: 80K

Tour long Giveaway: $50 gift card (Amazon, B&N or ARe) and set of 3 ‘Primal’ ebooks 

Book Specific ‘Caption This’ Contest:

To enter the Book specific ‘caption this’ contests you need to add your ‘caption’ as a comment on this blog. The author will be selecting a winner for each book-level contest from the captions left throughout the tour. Winners will be selected by author based on actual comments, not on random selection. ‘Best Caption’ wins. Make sure to leave your EMAIL address along with your caption in the comments. Winners will be notified via email.


Danica Avet was born and raised in the wilds of South Louisiana (that would be somewhere around Houma) where mosquitoes are big enough to carry off small children and there are only two seasons: hot and hotter. With a BA in History, she figured there were enough fry cooks in the world and decided to try her hand at writing.
Danica is the lucky pet of a compulsively needy dog and two cats. The pitter-patter of little feet has been known to make her break out into a cold sweat.
Writing is how she gives the voices in her head a way out. When she isn’t writing, working or contemplating the complexities of the universe, she spends time gathering inspiration from her insane family, reads far more than any sane person would want to, and watches hot burly men chase an oblong ball all over a field.


Deputy Daisy Picou is not impressed when Ram Reinhardt prowls into town all rock star swagger and big cat ego. She’s been burned by a lion before and has no intention of playing the fool twice. But with one scorching glance the mating frenzy ignites and passion trumps reason. An intense first encounter levels Daisy’s reservations—and most of her living room. And she’s not so sure she minds.

Ram Reinhardt has burned through and brushed aside just about every adrenaline-inducing thrill life’s thrown at him. But Daisy sets the gold standard for a premium rush. Her combative personality should turn him off, but every time they fight they end up in bed, or on the floor, or against a wall—and the sex is always more combustible than the time before. He’s not about to give that up. Ever.

“I can’t do this,” she whispered.

“My nose tells me otherwise.”

Some big-ass bear she turned out to be. She wilted at his words. Her robe slid off her shoulders to pool on the floor, the tie having given up the fight when he knocked her down. He bent his knees so the hard crown of his cock nestled right up against the slick lips of her pussy and glided back and forth. Her heart thumped in time with his slow, easy movements. Her cheeks burned with embarrassment and arousal at how wet she was for him, for a complete fucking stranger.
“I…physically, yes, I can do this, but I shouldn’t,” she protested weakly. Hell, she leaned forward and arched her hips back.
Ram’s cock settled between her folds, their combined slickness helping him slide along her groove. Her breath hitched every time the head of his cock brushed over her clit. She clenched her hands into fists against the wall, rocking her hips back to meet his gentle thrusts.
“Why not?” he whispered against her nape. His fingers pinched and teased her nipples. “Why not enjoy this?”

Yeah, why not? You want him, he wants you. It isn’t like he wants to mate you. It’s just sex. Oh the temptation was there, or rather behind her with a huge cock and clever hands, but she’d promised herself she’d settle down. This was not settling down and being responsible. This was insanity.

Release Day-- He Watches Me by Cynthia Sax

I'm so excited for Cynthia Sax today--it's release day for He Watches Me, Book One of The Seen Trilogy! I've been waiting for this day and haunting Chapters/Indigo's website, waiting for it to appear. I. Can't. Wait. To. Read. This. Book. There's a sexy excerpt here, on a previous post, for those of you who want a little taste of the goodies awaiting in this book. And now I'll turn the 'floor' over to Cynthia.

She’s Got A Friend

Cynthia Sax

Although we often focus on heroes and heroines in our stories, they don’t live in isolation. These characters have family, co-workers and friends, just like everyone else does (I consider Anya to be a dear buddy of mine – she’s a friend any woman would be lucky to have).
Of the three, I find friends to be the most indicative of a character’s personality. A heroine can’t choose her family but she can choose her friends.
Or she can choose not to have friends. Maybe she moves around a lot or she’s scared of being hurt or she has a dangerous secret a best friend would be certain to uncover (because we all know how best friends are – grins).
In the case of Anna, the heroine of He Watches Me, it is all three. Anna is running from her past. A beloved family member made a bad decision and this decision has haunted her, causing her to be judged, rejected, hurt. Anna moves across the country to L.A., seeking a fresh start, hoping to escape her undeserved reputation.
Anna is lonely and she desperately wants friends but she knows, in order to keep her past a secret, she’ll have to lie to them. She’s not a good liar and she’s uncomfortable with not telling the truth. Anna also knows when her new friends find out the truth about her, they’ll reject her. Then she’ll have to move again, leaving them behind.
She decides it’s best for everyone including herself if she avoids making friends, if she stays invisible, fading into the background. She goes to work, does her job quietly, eating lunch alone, and goes directly home, to an empty house. She is so disconnected with the outside world, she doesn’t even have a phone.
This is a great plan in theory. In reality, it doesn’t work. Camille aka Goth girl decides Anna will be her new friend. She sits beside her at work. She eats lunch with her. She defends her when co-workers tease her. She decides she likes Anna.
Anna, however, knows Camille doesn’t truly know her. When Camille finds out the truth, she’ll reject her. The smart response would be to reject Camille first, before Anna cares too much, before Camille can inflict more pain. Anna can’t do this. She knows how hurtful rejection is.
Anna now has a friend she desperately wants yet shouldn’t have. Pain is coming… for all of them. Anna simply doesn’t know when. Until this day arrives, she’ll enjoy Camille’s company, knowing how precious friendship is.
What do you love about your best friend? How long have you known her or him?


He Watches Me


She desires to be seen. He wants to watch.
Anna Sampson has a naughty secret. Every night, she slips into her neighbor’s yard and swims naked in his pool. She fantasizes that the dynamic young billionaire watches her nightly nude aquatics, his brilliant green eyes gleaming with lust.
She discovers this isn’t pure fantasy. Gabriel Blaine has been watching her via his security cameras, and now that he has returned to L.A., he doesn’t plan to stop. That’s all he wants—to watch. Anna knows she shouldn’t allow him and she certainly shouldn’t want more, but she craves Blaine’s attention, needing his gaze fixed on her body.
