LV’s Monday Meanderings… December 9, 2019!

Cookie left, Scrappy right

Happy Monday Meanderers! For this week’s Monday Meanderings, I just had to share pictures of my family’s dogs with you. A couple of years ago, we had to put our sweet female German Shepherd, Laila, down. The gate had been inadvertently left open while my husband had been mowing the backyard and she’d gotten out. Unfortunately, she was hit by a car and the extreme nerve damage she sustained rendered her unable to control her motor or bodily functions, so due to the inability of the vet to restore her to a sustainable quality of life, he suggested we put her down.

That was a devastating blow to our family, but we ended up dealing with it, and Scrappy, our little one became quite the “king” of his castle. He has never been friendly to a single dog since Laila left us. Over the holiday, my son asked us to sit for his puppy, Cookie (his black and white pit). This little guy, let me tell you, is a whirlwind of activity. In fact, he’s quite exhausting given how much attention he craves. Scrappy wasn’t having it. He growled at the poor little puppy the whole time he was there, and just when he was getting used to him, it was time for my son to pick up his dog and take him back home. LOL

I’d like to tell you that Scrappy got used to him and they became fast friends, but little alpha dog that Scrappy is, I’m sure that’s not going to happen, unless another female comes around. He is super territorial. So, I’m sharing with you the calmest photo I could find of the two, co-existing peacefully over the last weekend. Enjoy!

THE REBEL KING BY KENNEDY RYAN

The Rebel King, the stunning, beautiful conclusion to the All The King’s Men Duet, from USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Ryan, is available now! Get ready for a binge read! 

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

EXCERPT

A fat raindrop plops on my nose, sliding down the bridge, followed by another and then a wet succession.

“Aw, hell.” I pull my jacket up on my elbows to provide some shelter for the two of us, but the rain trebles, more coming down and faster.

“We still have four blocks before my place,” I say. “Sorry, but the weather is unpredictable this time of year.”

Rain has already started molding the thin dress to her body, faithfully hugging every swell and curve. A hard shiver runs through her and her teeth chatter.

“Come on.” I grab her hand and duck into an alleyway. An overhang provides a tiny patch of dry ground and shelter. “We may be able to wait it out. These showers sprout up and pass over like they never happened.”

We’re sandwiched between two buildings and there is barely any light, but the moonlight finds her, sculpting shadows beneath her cheekbones and etching dark crescents of her lowered lashes. The rain has smeared her mascara, and water-slicked hair flattens to her head. She should look bedraggled, but she manages to be the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen.

I bend, tentative at first, even after last night. Even after making love to her again this morning when I chased her up the stairs. I approach slowly, giving her the chance to refuse, but she doesn’t. She meets me, eyes open, lips eager, hands bunched in my wet hair. It’s a freshwater kiss, made of rain and passion. Slow touches pick up steam until we’re frantic against the wall, hands searching, desperate to find the flesh under our soaked clothes. The inside of her thigh is slick with rain, and I trace the droplets with my finger before inching higher and burrowing beneath her panties, inside. 

“Do that, Doc,” she says, a breath-starved command. “Yes.”

I lean into the damp, scented curve of her neck, leaving kisses there while my finger is knuckle-deep in paradise. Every sound she makes gets me harder, ready. She kisses my jaw, my cheekbone, pulls my bottom lip between hers. 

“We should stop,” I pant across her mouth. “I can’t . . . let’s stop before . . .” How do I tell her that if we don’t, I’ll be fucking her in an alley with no regard for who might see? How do I say that without sounding disrespectful and selfish?

“Don’t stop.” She fumbles at my waist, tugging the belt from its buckle and pulling the button loose, the zipper down. “Do it.”

“Baby.” I drop my head back and groan. So tempting. I want to so badly. “The rain should let up soon. We can make a dash for it to my house.”

“Or,” she says, working her hand into my pants; finding me. Squeezing me. 

“Dammit, Nix,” I groan. “Don’t make me want you any more than I already do.”

“Or,” she says again, “you can do what we both want. Take what I want to give. Right here. Right now.”

Is it surrender when you both want it? I’m not sure if it’s her will or mine that wins out, but I hitch her up, my hands full of her ass, and lock her legs at my back. I reach between us to push her panties aside and plunge in. 

I feel like a god. 

Yet every time she gasps and groans and tightens around my body, she conquerors me. She’s indelible. I may end up with someone else, may even love someone someday, but there is a place Lennix Moon has carved out inside of me in a matter of a few days where only she will ever fit. It’s irrational and goes against all the rules I’ve set for myself, but she feels like mine. For the next two days, she is mine.

And then we’ll walk away.

I Kissed The Boss by Lindsey Hart

Drinks + Christmas Party + Lost eye contacts = Flaming Hot Kiss

Except I have no idea who was on the receiving end.

I didn’t even see (extreme short-sightedness problems big time).
But it was definitely someone from the office.

New week, new day at work,
Annnnd my lips are still tingling whenever I think about it.
But it’s not like I can kiss every guy in the office,
And see who would turn out to be the charming prince of that night.

Not that I don’t already have enough on my plate as it is,
What with all the shooting glares my hotshot player of a boss keeps directing at me.

Why was he suddenly acting so out of character?
What was he so mad about?
Did I do something wrong?

Did I fax the wrong letter maybe?
Or clip his documents wrong?

This is a steamy 2-book romance novella box set. No cheating. No cliff-hanger. And the kind of ending you will just love. Team HEA all the way!!

Hometown Attraction by Annabelle Love

Second Chances in Small Towns…

This 3 book collection of small-town romances will turn up the heat and have your toes curling.

Hometown Knight: A Protector Romance

Where’s a knight in shining armor when you need him?

Andrew Holloway just walked back into town.
Muscle bound. Chiseled jaw.
Big, captivating, brown eyes.

Also… my Ex.

The man who broke my heart when he last left our hometown.
The man who chose his career over me.
The man who now wants me back?

Life isn’t a damn fairy tale.

I have debts and danger chasing after me.
I can’t afford a second chance at heartache.

So what do I do now that I’m pregnant?

Hometown Lover: A Friends to Lovers Romance

We’re best friends, not lovers.
So, how did I end up in my best friend’s bed?

Well, he did rescue me from my broken down car.
Plus, he’s grown into a complete hunk of a man and is hardly the beanstalk that I recall growing up with.

It just… happened.

I mean, if you call being trapped inside due to a snowstorm and then finding yourself being ravished in bed ‘just happening’.

A fling… that’s what we agreed. We know this can’t last, I’m only back in my hometown for a couple of weeks.

My life is in Vegas with the job I love.
And his is here with his ranch.
We physically can’t be together…

So, why don’t I want to leave?

Hometown Virgin: A Second Chance Romance

My biggest regret was breaking up with her.

Years ago I met Lauren in college, and I knew she was the one.
I pushed her away to protect her.
I wasn’t going to let her throw her dreams and aspirations away for me!

Now, I have everything I could want… except for her.

But fate has given me another chance.

She’s been here in her hometown exactly how I left her for all these years.
Still untouched… still waiting… for me?

Will I get a second chance with my first love?

***Each book is a stand-alone with toe-curling romantic scenes and REAL love. There’s no cheating, no cliffhangers, no escaping the oh-so-satisfying steaminess and a guaranteed HEA***

LV’s Monday Meanderings… November 25, 2019!

Happy Monday Meanderers! With this week’s Monday Meanderings, as always I bring you features and other great books for you to discover! This past weekend I experienced my second ever bout of food poisoning from a local Mexican restaurant which a co-worker and I had the misfortune to dine in last Thursday. My stomach is still rather sore and queasy from all the cramping, etc. LOL I would not wish this on anyone. So happy to not be sick as a proverbial dog.

Hating My Hero by Holly Jaymes

The man who once destroyed my heart is now demolishing my house!

I never wanted to see him again.

But now he’s back and to top it all off, he moved in next door!

He’s got the same sexy tats over a broad hard chest.

And a cocky smile that promises exquisite sensual delights.

I might let him in my house to renovate my home, but there’s no way I’ll let him back in my pants or my heart.

Even if he did save me…more than once.

If only he didn’t look so hot in his tool belt.

If only my body didn’t crave to feel his touch.

If only I could trust that he wouldn’t betray me again.

If only I could resist him.

Now I’m falling all over again.

Can I trust that this time around it will last forever, or am I building my dream on a house of cards?

A Warm Touch by Rebecca Howard

My favorite part of her?
Her curves.

Charlotte is a baker.
We’re total opposites.
She’s sweet and sexy.
And me?
I’m a ruthless detective.
Still, I’m nothing if not utterly obsessed with her.
She turns my world upside down.
And all I want to do is pleasure her.
Charlotte doesn’t think she’s worthy of my love.
What she doesn’t know is that she has me.
Now and forever.
And I’m about to show her just how far I’d go to win her over.

My Way To You by Lyndell Williams

“Passion and interpersonal politics collide. This interracial romance handles tough topics unflinchingly.” – Talia Hibbert, author of Mating the Huntress

Lawyer Simon Young is smart, confident, and adept at keeping things with women casual—until he meets his best friend Marcus’s sister, Regina. Immediately intrigued by Regina’s beauty, Simon becomes increasingly enthralled and ultimately risks his friendship to have her for himself.

Social justice writer and activist Regina Kent is usually cautious and savvy. Yet, unable to resist her attraction to the handsome Simon, she plunges into a torrid affair, knowing that she chances angering big brother and her less tolerant followers, many of whom will not accept that one of their most popular pro-Black bloggers is dating an Asian man.

As their clandestine romance evolves, Simon and Regina fall deeper in love. Making sure that things stay between them becomes progressively impossible, and neither knows how much longer they can keep Marcus in the dark and the world at bay.

“Lyndell Williams is an incredible writer with an amazing ability to captivate readers with her stories. My Way to You is a witty and gripping BWAM romance full of passion.” Love Journey Books

“My Way to You is a compelling interracial romance that shows how hard it can be for two people to stay together in a world divided by race.” – Nasheed Jaxson, author of Her Justice.

THE KINGMAKER BY KENNEDY RYAN

Power. Passion. Betrayal.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.

BLACKBIRDS NOVEL DUET

ETHAN’S CHOICE: BLANK PAGES I BY LILY JAVA

Stand-Alone: yes
Series: Blackbirds, Book 1
Publisher: Hot Java Press
Publication Date: October 18, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Literary, Family Saga
Heat Level: Sensual


BLACKBIRDS NOVEL DUET

When Elliott Vance sees his parents, Serena and Ethan, together for the first time, holding hands; it causes a tectonic shift in his perception of reality. Answering all the questions that bubble to the surface, will not always be easy or pleasant. But, there’s always a beginning, a middle, and an end to most stories, including Serena and Ethan’s.

The reconnection between Serena and Ethan Vance will lead to explosive revelations and a thousand and one questions about their past. But will it also give them and their only son Elliott, the closure they all so desperately need?

‘Ethan’s Choice: Blank Pages I’ and ‘Serena’s Vow: Blank Pages II’ by Lily Java brings full circle the story of Elliott Vance’s parents, Serena and Ethan, first introduced in the novel ‘Blackbirds’.

L.V. ‘s Review of Ethan’s Choice

Lily Java amazes me, first of all, as an author, because she’s done something spectacular in writing a duet of more than six hundred pages! Secondly, this first story, Ethan’s Choice, itself is a tour de force. Java writes about Ethan and Serena, their meeting, their falling in love, and the baggage they each bring into a relationship juxtaposed against a backdrop of the Bronx in the 1970’s and 1980’s . Her words draw the reader into the boroughs of NYC as if you lived and breathed in the “city that never sleeps.”

As you get to know Ethan and Serena, you also meet everyone else who played a part in their lives, particularly Ethan’s as Java expertly peeled back layer after layer of the nuances that made Ethan the man he was and what ultimately led him to make the choice he made. I confess, I read Ethan’s choice with a bit of low-key jealousy, because I kept thinking how I want to be as adept with stringing together my words and phrases as Ms. Java is. One particular scene that I practically salivated over was the one where there’s a deliberate POV shift involving Ian, the red-head and his run-in with an avenging angel, if you will. That was brilliant!

I found Ethan’s Choice to be rich in description that doesn’t succumb to purple prose, which paints a vivid picture of the story of Ethan’s turbulent life and Serena’s seemingly charmed one. The fraught relationship that Ethan has with both his father and his uncle make for a riveting read, placing the reader right in the middle of the actions that made Ethan the man he became, despite resisting his arrival there literally “kicking against the pricks.”

If you want to read a story that goes so much further than the surface of a relationship, one that carries you all the way back to its origins, that will have you rooting harder for these fictitious characters than you’ve ever done in your life, you must read, Ethan’s Choice.

ETHAN’S CHOICE: BLANK PAGES I BY LILY JAVA

He thought he planned for everything. But, what he didn’t plan for, was her.

Whether we are we born into the world a blank page has been argued since the time of Aristotle. Is it nature or nurture that makes us who we are? Do we choose our own fate, or are we chosen for the roles we play?

Serena Clay is a golden girl living in a soulful, turbulent time. Beautiful, intelligent, pragmatic, and so well cared for, one would think she’d be better prepared. But there’s no way, she could’ve known how overwhelming and passionate it would be to fall in love, until she met Ethan Vance—a fierce, charming, and enigmatic young man.

Ethan Vance lives a life filled with secrets and lies. He longs to be free of them as well as of the violent family legacy they stem from. With careful planning and avoidance, he hopes to keep the woman he dares to love and the person most precious to him, in his life forever. When things go bad as they often do, Ethan has a choice to make but now his heart won’t be the only one on the line.

Keeping her promises has often meant sacrifice. But is it ever too late to try and live your best dreams?

Sometimes, re-imagining your life is your only road to salvation.

Long ago left by the man she loved and trusted, with a young son to raise alone, Serena Vance is now a grown woman. The vows she and Ethan made to each other, she has had to forget. Now there is nothing more important than helping her son become the best man he can be. But will reaching that goal come at the expense of her own happiness?

Ethan Vance is a lost, broken man—angry, alone, and teetering on the brink of disaster. The people and things that meant the most to him are disappearing from his life one by one. Every day has become a nightmare, and to survive he must turn his life around.

But is it ever too late to have a second chance at living your best dreams?

In the winding journey these two former lovers take further away from each other, they both lose a significant part of themselves. To thrive again, they must re-invent their lives apart … and maybe, in doing so they will find their way back together.

ETHAN’S CHOICE – EXCERPT

Serena was lying in his bed, reading. They’d made love late that afternoon. He’d elevated the hurt wrist and told her not to move it, no matter what he did. She was obedient, though he did not make it at all easy for her. As she writhed against his treacherous mouth, tongue, and hands, he kept her in endless pursuit of an orgasm until she could barely move from the effort. The sun set over their warm, conjoined bodies. 

He never seemed to have enough time with her to his liking. And now here she was— lying in hisbed, in hisshirt—and he still felt that way. He’d been studiously watching her while pretending to work on something else. It wasn’t just that she was beautiful. It was her earthiness—how full of grace she was. It made him feel like having her in his life was the only thing he needed to be sure he’d stay safe, grounded, and in touch with everything around him. That as long as she was there, as long as he could look at her every day, he wouldn’t lose himself to the dour or murky thoughts he sometimes had about his life—about the world in general. 

She reached the end of a page and adjusted herself while turning it when she noticed he was staring. 

Everything he’d been thinking, everything he’d been planning, Ethan blurted it all out at once. 

“There’s something I want to tell you. I’ve made a decision. I’m going to leave school after this semester.”

Her brow creased ever so slightly. He got the impression she was holding her breath a little. Stabilizing herself against the conversation, she took a deep breath, and then another, before she spoke. 

“Where will you go?”

“I’m thinking about going to the country for a little while.”

“The country? What do you mean?”

“I mean I’m thinking about renting that house we stayed in but for a longer time than just a weekend.” 

Serena sat up in the bed, pushing the book aside.  

“In Claverack?”

“Yeah.”

“Why there?”

“Good memories.”

He knew her downcast eyes and the subtle smile meant she was remembering too.
