Synopsis

Phoenix has been stumbling through life since her brother Adric’s tragic death but after eight years, she is finally piecing what remains together. She has a nice apartment, a steady job and not to mention a fresh new ‘relationship’ with her childhood friend, Kade Haze. He’s the sexy boy next door that she never even dreamed of falling for, but can’t seem to stop the pull she feels toward him.

Just when life began to make sense again and a feeling of normalcy was on the horizon, Phoenix’s carefully constructed walls come crashing down.

When walking into the tattoo shop one day, the last thing that she’s expecting to see is Kellan Haze, Adric’s best friend that no one has seen or heard from since the day that they found her brother’s body. He’s nothing as she remembers him as a child, with his wild messy hair, tattoos that cover most of his undeniably sexy body and eyes so intense that it makes her legs quiver with one look. The one thing that even she can’t deny is the instant rush that she feels just by being in his presence.

But how can you choose between love and lust when one of these hold a dark secret, one that can crush your world to pieces and leave you gasping for air. Who can you trust when your mind is pulling you in two different directions and your heart has to choose for you?

The Haze brothers are sexy, daring and possibly . . . dangerous.

This Regret is a story of love, lust, betrayal and danger with an ending that no one saw coming.

Excerpt

I sit there fighting to catch my breath as I watch him run his hands over his face before running his fingers through his hair, tugging it.

“That’s all I’ll ever be to you, isn’t it? Adric’s little sister,” I say stiffly. “I’m not a child anymore and I have taken more pain than you know. You think you’ve been hurting over the years, well fuck you Kellan because I’ve been hurting worse.” I stand up from the desk and pull my skirt down. I’m in so much heartache right now, especially after getting to feel those lips on mine, just to take the feeling away and never give it again. It hurts like hell, but I refuse to show it. “Oh and don’t ever kiss me again. I don’t think your brother would like his lips to be where yours has been.”

The look on his face is as if I’ve just slapped him. It’s the same look that Kade had given me when I called him by his brother’s name. I don’t even know why I just said what I said. Maybe I want to hurt him just as bad as he has hurt me over the years.

He rubs a hand over his mouth and looks me in the eye. “You’re right. I don’t think he would like that either.” He stares me in the eyes while walking over to stand in front of me. His eyes trail down to my lips as he speaks again. “But I think I fucking hate his lips on yours more.”

Before I can speak, his lips crush mine again as he backs me up against the wall. This time he doesn’t even ask for entrance, he just takes it. He places his hand on my chin and pushes my head back, causing me to gasp as he slips his tongue into my mouth. His tongue hungrily caresses mine and this time, I feel the coolness of the steel in his mouth as he swirls his tongue around mine, before sucking it into his mouth. “Fuck the rules and fuck what Kade wants. Here’s to making this day better. Today, you’re mine.”

I look at his mouth as he runs his tongue over his lip and looks me in the eye. “Kellan, you don’t have to-“

“Come with me,” he breathes. “I have places that I want to take you.”

His Adams apple bobs as he looks at me waiting for a response. “What about the party and your family?”

“Screw the party, Phoenix. This day is about you and being sure that you never have to suffer on this day again. Give me a chance to change your mind.”

He looks at me pleadingly and I can’t help but to give in. A part of me doesn’t even care where he’s taking me as long as I’m with him. “Okay, take me anywhere you want.”

I hope this is the right decision or I’m in for a world of hurt.

Accepted Fate by Charisse Reid Cover Reveal

20131229-125108.jpg

20131229-125112.jpg

What do you do when everything you had planned out for yourself gets changed in one summer? Do you embrace the new or fight to keep things the same?

For seventeen year old Kinzleigh everything was going just as she always planned. She had great friends, went to a school she loved, and always knew she was destined for greatness. One step already completed towards acquiring the job she has forever dreamed of, a pro football cheerleader. Nothing and no one was going to stand in her way, especially not love. What she doesn’t expect is for her parents to suddenly change everything and send her spiraling into a life she didn’t want for herself, especially after meeting one blue eyed boy she can’t stop dreaming about. Her life is changing at every turn. She is learning that sometimes life has different plans than our own. When she finally accepts the hand fate has dealt, everything is ripped from her once again.

Can she accept the ugly fate that was chosen for her or will she fight to once again accept it.

Excerpt:

I finally reach the end and sit, placing my legs over the side, but because
of my height they do not reach the water. The night begins to replay through my
thoughts. I can’t believe everything I’ve worked so hard for is crashing down
around me. Being squad captain of one of the top 5 squads in the country
guaranteed me a spot on almost any college in the country. Even if this Hicksville
town, Mississippi has a cheer leading squad, will they even have room for
another cheerleader? Do they even compete? Now, I’m going to have to work
harder just to get a tryout at the colleges I’m interested in.

Why would my parents just pick up and move us when I have one year of
high school left? How do they expect me to just leave everything I know behind
and start over? I have friends here, family, that has to mean something to them.
This isn’t fair. Maybe I can think of a way to stay behind. I just have to. My
parents have got to understand what this will do to me. I just want to wake up
and realize this is all a dream. All I can do is stare out at the ocean, lost in
thought.

All of my emotions finally catch up to me and the tears start to fall, heavier
this time. I can’t stop them anymore. I don’t know what to do. Everything was
going great in my life and now the misery is about to begin. I don’t even try to
wipe the tears away anymore, I just let them flow. I don’t understand out of all the
states in the continental U.S., why my parents have to choose some po-dunk
town in Mississippi. I can’t imagine the kind of people that reside there. After that
big hurricane, Katrina I think, they had people walking around barefooted and
missing teeth. Do they even have shopping malls and designer clothes, I wonder,
or is it full of trailer parks and cow fields. My stomach turns at the thought.
I’m not sure how long I’ve been sitting there, staring at the water, but my
back is beginning to hurt and I’m growing tired from crying, but the tears continue
to fall. I should just go home and go to bed, but I’m not ready to face my parents
yet. I lay back against the pier, looking into the sky. Its dark, but the sky is clear.
There is not a cloud for miles. It’s beautiful glancing out at all the stars, shining
brightly. It’s also a full moon tonight. A strange peacefulness begins to wash over
me, causing me to close my eyes. Clearly my mind is not in normal territory,
because I would never close my eyes late at night on a public beach. There are
too many creeps out there.

I couldn’t have been laying there but what seemed like a few minutes. I
must have dozed off when, “Mind if I join you,” flows through my ears in a deep,
raspy voice. My eyes pop open and a tall familiar face is standing over me,
looking down, with a smile on his face.

I begin to panic and sit up in a hurry, embarrassed. Embarrassment is a
rare trait for me and this guy has brought it out twice in one day. “I’m sorry, I don’t
usually do this, it’s been a bad night.” I look back out at the water, gripping the
side of the pier, as if the most beautiful boy isn’t standing behind me. Right then, I
can feel his breathing on the back of my neck, quickening my heart rate. In the
short time, he has managed to squat behind me, the inside of each knee resting
against my side.

He begins to whisper in my ear, “May I keep you company for a while? I’ll
be quiet if that’s what you need.” His breath is so light, it tickles my ear. I can
barely breath, let alone speak, so I just nod. My head is fuzzy and I can’t think
when he’s this close.

He sits beside me and removes his shoes, placing his feet in the water. I’m
finally able to exhale the breath I’ve been holding. “How long have you been
here?” I turn and glance at him, to find that he’s staring at me. I don’t know where
this guy is from, I don’t really care, but he’s gorgeous. I never take an interest in a
guy, it’s one of my few rules, but following rules have gotten me nowhere,
obviously. I’m not thinking clearly anyway, I guess I can break my rule and enjoy
his company for a while. He is leaving soon anyway and right now I need a
distraction from all this bad news.

He reaches out slowly, as if he’s afraid I’ll run away, placing his hand over
my cheek, rubbing his thumb underneath my eye, freeing it from the wetness of
the tears. Great, I have no idea what I look like right now. “I needed to clear my
head and came to the beach, I saw you standing by the water earlier, are you
okay?”

My eyes close at the warmth from his hand. I should be mad he followed
me, but I can’t. I just want him near me, but no personal questions. I don’t need
him to know me or what makes me tick. I don’t need any complications. I open
my eyes to him staring at my lips. “Can we just exist together without trying to
obtain personal quota? Let’s just enjoy casual company, two people needing
nothing from each other. Clearly you’re not from here, meaning you’ll be gone
soon. I’m not one of those girls that needs or wants to know everything about you
nor do I want to spill my entire life to you. We don’t have to pretend with each
other, lets call this what it is. Can you do that?”

He just stares at me as if he’s trying to figure me out, like I’m a book full of
secrets. He seems lost in my eyes, amused, confused, I don’t know. We sit there
staring at each other as if we can’t pull away. He doesn’t say anything, just bites
his lip as if he’s trying to answer his own question, or to make a decision. I’m
about to get up and walk away, when his other hand reaches behind my neck,
pulling me closer. His lips stop in front of mine, close enough to touch, when he
whispers, “Beautiful,” and crashes his lips to mine.

His lips are so soft and full, but needy. His warm tongue slips through the
opening of my lips, requesting entry. Our tongues taste, touch, and dance
together. A moan, barely more than a whisper, escapes my lips. I run my hands
across his arms and up his neck, into the back of his hair. My heart is beating
wildly. Foreign emotions are running through my body. I have never felt this need
before, but it’s as if my body needs more. Suddenly, I feel like I need to cross my
legs from the spasms down below. What is he doing to me? What does this
mean? He turns, laying me against the pier. He has one hand on my waist, the
other beside my head, holding his weight above me, like when we were at the
beach. He continues to kiss me, taking my bottom lip into his mouth, lightly
sucking. He makes a low growling sound from his throat. I’m not sure why until I
feel his need pressed against the bottom of my belly, making my eyes go wide
from surprise. Oh no, I can’t go there. As if he can sense my panic, he stops. He
kisses me one last time softly and releases my lips.

He looks me in the eyes, a smile growing across his face. He brushes his
fingers through my hair, down my arm and grabs me by the hand, interlacing his
fingers with mine. “Nothing personal huh, I think I can do that.” His lips brush
mine quickly before he moves back to his spot of the pier, pulling me by my hand
to sit between his legs. “I promise I’ll be good for the rest of the night. I’ve just
wanted to do that all day.”

I’m completely and utterly speechless. I have no idea what I’m doing. I
never do reckless or unplanned things like this. I have no idea who this guy is,
really, and now I’m sitting on the pier making out with him. I really need to get my
head back in the game. I always think everything through before I make a
decision. Being around him takes away my ability to process. Right now there are
so many unknowns, but what I do know is that I’m not ready for it to end just yet.

Synopsis:

Arianna Moore is one half of the female rock duo, The Daughters of Darkness. She has walls built up around her heart that are taller than any skyscraper. But when an unexpected gig throws her and Jayde Kimberland a deal of a lifetime, Arianna finds herself intertwined with the rock star bad boy, Bryden Rowe, who leads the platinum selling rock group, From Yesterday. His reputation isn’t the best and she doesn’t want to be another notch on his belt.

When the past comes knocking on both their doors, emotions run high, and tensions run even higher. Will they be able to break past all the barriers and find comfort in one another or will it only last while on the road?

Excerpt

“What are you doing, Bryden?” My voice came out in an exhausted sounding tone.

He turned back to me and caged me in with his arms once more. His grey-blue eyes were piercing into me and all I could do was slouch back against the elevator wall. “Why do you have such a negative outlook about me, sassy girl? What have I done to make you feel the way you feel about me and what can I do to change that?” Bryden closed his eyes and placed his forehead back against mine. His breath was slightly blowing against my face as he breathed. The faint smell of whiskey and honey lingered in the air. “Let me in…please…just let me in.” His lips were so close to mine and I wanted so badly to kiss him again, but I knew that I couldn’t.

“I can’t.” I whispered.

He opened his eyes and the sadness that I saw almost caused me to cave but the sudden ringing of my cell phone startled me out of the moment. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I looked at the screen, Brett’s name was flashing. “I’ve got to take this…” as Bryden pushed off the wall and turned away from me. “Hey Brett…” I chimed into the phone. I could see Bryden working his jaw back and forth at the sound of his name which caused my heart to ache. He leaned forward and un-did the stop button to allow the elevator to continue climbing up the floors. Then he pushed floor twelve, it was his way of letting me know that I needed to go back to my own room. I wasn’t listening to what Brett was rambling on about in my ear; instead I was watching Bryden standing there like a sad broken man would. My heart was officially confused.

My Master’s Nightmare ( 1-5) by Marita Hansen Blog Tour

20131229-141911.jpg

I didn’t see it coming, didn’t realize how different everything would be within the space of a month. I would fall in love with one man, I would kill another, and I would lose my body, my mind, my soul – my freedom to them. I was an operative, a strong woman, someone sent in to save others, but under these two men I became weak – or pretended to be. I didn’t like being weak, it angered me. If I had free rein I could cut my masters in two. But I wasn’t there for pride, I was there to free those women and to take down the two men who sold them as sex slaves.

Those men needed to be punished

And I would do it

No matter the cost

Or how much I lost

Because I am Rita Kovak

CHARACTER INTERVIEWS:

Frano:

1)How would you describe yourself?
I’m the biggest prick in the world—but in a good way. And if you ladies want proof, I’m more than happy to show you. But apart from that, I’m a six-foot-one, muscular Caucasian male with black hair and dark-olive skin. That’s what the FBI printout said. It also said I’m a slave trader and the head of the D’Angelo family.

2)Tell me about the place where you live?
I can’t tell you that, otherwise the FBI will turn up at my house with a warrant to enter, and I don’t want them seeing my slave cells. But I can say that I live by the sea. My great-grandfather built the family’s two-story house, but I renovated it, along with the furniture.

3)What is the thing you are most proud of?
That I am the head of my family. Being a don is a great honor.

4)What is your most prized possession?
Right now: a female FBI agent. And yes, she is a possession, I own her.

5)Are you a sports fan?
Most definitely. I love sport, especially football, or what you Americans call soccer. I used to be a striker and the captain of my team, but unfortunately I had to give it up when my father fell ill with dementia. However, when I’m not working, I like to go outside and kick the ball around with Thierry. He’s a lovely kid.

I was also the wrestling champion at high school, and competed in the European Games at eighteen. My father was very proud of me.

6)What’s the first thing you wash in the shower?
I don’t really think about it, but I assume it would be either my hair or cock. Can I say cock in the interview?

7)We’ve heard from a VERY reliable source that you moan the name Jahayra while stroking. Can you tell us a little bit about this mystery women?
I don’t know who Jahayra is, but she has a very unique and lovely name. Maybe when I moan or breathe heavily, it could sound like her name, which is why you might have assumed this. Unless you’ve been spying on me, which you better not, because I will find where you live and make you pay.

8) If you could change anything about your appearance, what would it be?
Nothing, I am happy with my appearance.

9) What is your favorite sex position?
If you’re asking me this, then obviously you haven’t been spying on me after all, so I will allow you to sleep easy in your bed tonight. And if you really want to know what my favorite sex position is, it would be a woman riding me. I like strong women who take control of my cock. And you never answered whether it was okay to say cock, therefore it’s your own fault if your readers don’t approve.

10) Can you talk dirty to us in Italian?
Ti voglio scopare duramente (I want to fuck you hard).

Jagger:
1)Do you have a childhood nickname?
It was Jagger, my real name is Gabriel, but I don’t use it because it reminds me of… someone I hate. When I was a little ragazzo, I used to love dancing to The Rolling Stones, so my father nicknamed me after the main singer.

2)If you had a day to do anything you wanted, what would you do?
Go skiing.

3)Do you prefer boxer or briefs?
Briefs.

4)How would you describe yourself?
Beautiful. It’s what everyone else says. I have wavy black hair and dark olive skin. I’m of average height for a man, slim but with lean muscle. I dress very well, whether casually or formally. I’m not a very social person, but I do enjoy talking to women, although I have an aversion to men. I don’t like them much nor do they like me. They tend to get paranoid when I’m around their women, so they are quite often hostile towards me, except for the gay ones, which is why I tend to avoid nightclubs because I get groped a lot. I don’t like men touching me.

Personality wise: I’m a manipulator and a seducer.

5)What’s the name of your favorite cologne?
I don’t have a favorite; I wear whatever cologne Bianca buys me. She has very good taste though, because people often comment on how nice I smell.

6)Do you have any spiritual beliefs?
I used to believe in Catholicism until someone in the church hurt me. I wish I still believed, because ignorance was bliss. That might be an insensitive thing to say, but you cannot judge me until you’ve walked in my shoes. I will move onto the next question, because this one is making me feel uncomfortable.

7) What are your 3 greatest strengths?
1. Manipulating people into doing what I want. I just wish I can do this to everyone, because it would make my life so much easier.
2. Getting women into my bed.
3. My appearance, but that is also a weakness.

8) Are you aware you have a stalker named Chippy?
No. I have a lot of stalkers; I can’t keep count of them.

9) If you could change anything about your appearance, what would it be?
I would have an ordinary face so no one would notice me.

10) Can you give us your signature come on line?
I don’t use one; my face is all I need to get women.

Rita:
1)Do you have any siblings?
Not that I know of. I was brought up in an orphanage and by foster parents.

2) Favorite childhood memory?
Due to a head injury, I don’t really remember my childhood, while my teenage years were a bit rough. Though, I have fond memories of Christmas day at my Italian foster parents’ home, especially since all their past foster children would bring me presents. And my foster mother made the most wonderful food. I always got a stomach ache from eating too much, but it was definitely worth it. I miss my foster parents terribly.

3)Who was your teenage crush?
Enrique Iglesias.

4) Was there any outside influences that made you want to join the FBI?
I never thought about joining, they approached me.

5) Do you regret signing up for this assignment?
Yes, because I wish I’d never met Frano D’Angelo. He is an utterly infuriating man who thinks far too much of himself, and he always thinks he’s right. And when you return what he has done to you, he gets all high and mighty as though he is the only one who has been wronged. And anyway, what I did to him isn’t the same as what he did to me, what he did was far worse, since I was only trying to teach him a lesson. Karma is a bitch when you fuck with me.

6) Do you have any pet peeves?
People cracking their knuckles, it drives me insane. And of course: rapist scum bag dons.

7) What’s your favorite dessert?…. Frano !…oops, that’s my answer.
Chocolate mousse, and don’t get me started on Frano again, I can rant about him all day, and no, just in case you ask, I wouldn’t eat the mousse off his body, no matter how delicious his body is, because he’s a bastard who would lord it over me.

8) Would you ever remarry?.. Do you want children?
I don’t think I could trust anyone enough to remarry. What Matteo did shocked me to my core, the way he so easily deceived me. The man was utterly believable, although if I thought about it, his need for anal play really was a warning sign.

I don’t know about children, plus my life isn’t really conducive to having them.

9) If you were stranded on a island who would you choose to be stranded with Frano or Jagger?
Frano, so I can drown him.

10) What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Chocolate mousse.

Alberto:
1) Tell us a happy childhood memory?
Swimming in the lake with my brother.

2) Favorite superhero?
Superheroes are boring, I always preferred the villains. I like Darth Sidious.

3) Do you have any hobbies?
Boxing and watching Jagger.

4) What is your favorite dish?
That is impossible to answer, because Maria, the family cook, makes the most magnificent food, it is a thousand times better than any restaurant. Here are some of my favorites dishes that she makes: Tiramisu, Creamy Scalloped Potatoes with Artichokes, Veal Marsala, Herb Ricotta Gnocchi, and Penne alla Vodka.

6) How does your conscience allow you to sleep at night?
I sleep fine, my conscience is fine. I don’t know why you would ask such a question. I feel like you are insinuating that I have done something wrong, which I haven’t.

7) Matteo sounds yummy, why the hell aren’t you attracted to him?
He is a control freak, and doesn’t take no for an answer. And I prefer raven-haired beauties. Put Matteo next to Jagger and he fades away into nothing. But I’d advice you not to tell him that, because he is intensely jealous of Jagger, and has a habit of throwing tantrums that can turn violent.

8) If your house was on fire and you could grab only 3 things before leaving, what would they be?
Can people be counted? Because I’d grab Jagger. And I’d make sure Frano was safe too and of course the cook. That is three. But if you want inanimate objects, I would choose the photos of my mother.

9) Have you ever had romantic feelings for your wife Bianca?
Of course not.

10) What animal might best describe your character?
People say I look like an ape, but they are just being nasty, because I don’t. Instead, I think I’m like a bear: big and strong, and not afraid to tackle threats head on.

Matteo:
1) What do you think are people’s first expression of you?
I’m hot and they want to fuck me. Or get fucked by me.

2) What is your motto in life?
Take what I want.

3) Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
I don’t know.

4) What kind of car do you drive?
A red Ferrari.

5) Was it love at first sight when you met Rita?
Hell no! I’m not attracted to women. Though, I think it was love at first sight for her, which you can hardly blame her for, considering how hot I am. Ha! That also answers your other question about what word I over use. It’s ‘hot’. And if you must know, I love Alberto.

6) In your opinion, what is your best feature?
Why pick one? Everything about me is perfect.

7) Are you a morning person?
Yes. I love getting up when the air is still crisp. Running in the early hours are the best, because it can get very hot during the day.

Okay Matteo answer these question with the first thought that comes into your head:
*Hot or Cold: Hot, like me. There I go again, looks like I can’t escape that word, but when you look like me it’s understandable.
*Summer or Winter: Summer.
*Coffee or Tea: Neither, I like ‘Hot’ Chocolate. *Sniggering*
*Chicken or Beef: Chicken.
*Catcher or Pitcher: Catcher. I like receiving, not giving—in everything. *wink, wink*

Synopsis

(Conflicted Love is book #2 in the Needle’s Kiss series and should be read AFTER Tattered Love to fully grasp the story.)

Trip’s life motto is simple: get in, get off, get out. His lifestyle works for him, that is until he finds himself in an unexpected situation with the one girl he can’t seem to get out of his mind.

Teeny has been strong for too long. One amazing crazy night, with her best friend’s cocky colleague, leaves her with more than just unwanted feelings and cravings she just can’t seem to quench.

She’s knocked up.

He’s freaked out.

Life is about to get crazy for two people who can’t stand to be close, yet can’t seem to pull apart. Tension and confusion turn into mood swings and midnight snacks. How can things ever go back to simple times when every direction leads to chaos?

My review:

I thought I loved Mace and Scar’s story in Tattered Love. I do, but Trip’s story brought Lola Stark’s writing up a notch. In true Lola fashion, there’s a lot of sex and cursing with a very sweet, funny and tender side.  ❤️
Trip and Teeny have a love/hate relationship that is hilarious and unlike any other. The sex is sizzling 🔥 hot, every situation turns up being funny and in a weird way, the reader can relate to both Teeny and Trip’s very different points of view. 
Teeny’s pregnancy issues had me crying because I was laughing so hard. 
“I knew exactly how unreasonable my tears were, but at that point, it was completely out of my control. I crawled over to the coffee table and snagged my phone. Shit, it was late; Scarlett would be asleep; besides, I wasn’t in the habit of bothering her and Mace. This left me with one option. Trip. Looking between the kitchen and my phone, I weighed my options. Did I dare call him? Were pickles and ice cream really that important? Yes, yes they were.” ~ Teeny

Trip is sweet, hot as hell, and tender. He tries so hard during the whole book. 

Don’t push me, Princess. I’m clear out of give–a-fucks and my dick’s so hard it could hammer nails. Move that sweet ass before I bend it over and fuck it into oblivion,” I growled in her ear driving the point home with a quick swat to her ass.” ~ Trip 

I absolutely loved the fact that she incorporated into the story the beginning of other characters’ stories that will make for next books. And that she didn’t forget about Mace and Scarlett, the kick-ass couple from Tattered Love. 

Guest review by Dimaris Rossi :

Lola never disapoints! I new I was going to love everything about this book! Trip and Teeny are great characters- they grow together and your going to love all the process! It will make you laugh and make you say “aaawww”. Oh, and in this journey this two are always HOT! I totally saw where Teeny was coming from with all her worries, they are very legit worries-everyone wants to be loved for who they are, without doubts… And it’s good that even though this 2 are in denial, they deal with every situation thrown at them. Specially the gorgeous cocky Trip- he is full of patience because Teeny is feisty as hell and I love that about her. This series keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait for the next one!
