Release Day for Sydney Logan’s: Soldier On


Hello everyone! I am so excited to share with you a story just released by the amazing Sydney Logan! I love Sydney’s writing style, as it is always sweet with some bittersweet moments that leave you really thinking about life and the human element. Her protagonists have issues- ones we can relate to, and you go into reading with the fervor to see your newest fiction friends make it to the happily ever after through everything that can be thrown at them. Nothing too angst-ridden- just honest. Real. 10151379_523200807788244_8207881945564334711_n

Soldier On is a wonderful journey for two young people who think they have their lives all figured out- and come to realize that life has a way of switching things up and testing your heart. Life will challenge your beliefs, your determination, and test your dedication.

When asked to read an Advance for Sydney Logan– a story about a modern day soldier and a complicated love story to boot– I was nervous to read based on some of my own past. Loving and losing the man you love to war is too close to my heart to usually allow me to even venture into a story about young soldier love.
But I love Sydney and everything she writes, because she writes what’s in the heart; her characters are always like one’s best friends while reading. So taking the advice of her title and her hero- I soldiered on and read this in one sitting.
And cried. Cried and laughed. Cried some more, and grinned like an idiot until my cheeks hurt. And even did a little happy, ugly crying to boot.
Brandon and Stephanie had plans for their last semester of college- and the future they had planned after graduation did not include a relationship. But a chance meet, that incredible feeling of a first kiss, and sweet chemistry changes that.
But Steph has some major hangups- like dating a soldier.
And Brandon’s a soldier.
Both have deeper stories that have shaped them- family histories that drive them to be who they are.
The love is clear. But with Steph’s issue about falling for a soldier, it’s a real test of their friendship, and their love.
Fear of being left behind, of losing the love you are desperately afraid to venture through with, of discovering that life isn’t perfect.
Because all you really need in life are three little things- Love, honesty, and respect- and as one of my favorite characters in the story says- you can’t have one without the others.
All this and more Ms. Logan covers with such ease, it truly is like riding the wave of emotions right beside every character.
So while I cried and ignored everything around me- I am left feeling content because this story was real. Close to home, but honest and respectful of not only our soldiers, but those that love them.

Grab a copy of Soldier On this weekend from June 20-22 for just 99 cents! And then enjoy a great read!

the blurb

10151379_523200807788244_8207881945564334711_n Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph’s only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.

Brandon Walker is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.

When faced with the realization that she’s fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present … and in her future?

Laura Kaye’s Hard As You Can Release

LKRDLGreeting, my friends!

As many of you are aware- I have a few favorite authors who I will drop everything and read whatever they have to offer- be it their grocery list, a tease of something they are working on, or their newest release in a series. Laura Kaye is one of those authors ( And as Laura shares a mutual love for Ben and Jerry’s- I KNOW her grocery list is Best-Selling!).

Laura’s newest release, Hard As You Can is the second novel in the Hard Ink Series- oh how I love former military men with a mission to correct the wrongs in the world! With ink! And attitude! Hard As You Can continues the action-packed story of five former Special Forces warriors- looking for the answers to their betrayal and dishonorable discharge. Shane McCallan takes front and center in this novel- out to fix the wrongs of those in need, namely, Crystal Dean. Crystal is struggling to get away from the seedy life she’s found herself stuck in due to family obligations and the underworld criminal bosses in Baltimore. When she bumps into Shane while on a secret rescue mission, the down on her luck waitress doesn’t realize she has just met her knight in shining armor.

Shane is just that: duty-bound, honorable, rough around the edges that makes any woman swoon, and capable of looking after the girl who’s caught his eye.

I just love Laura’s characters- every time I settle into one of her books, I know I will fall in love with every character she weaves. It is so true for this series. If you haven’t already read Hard As It Gets, the first in this series- RUN and grab it up. You will be so excited to have the sequel right there waiting!

HardAsYouCan Cvr Final 

Hard As You Can releases today and I am so happy to be a part of the Blog Blitz to celebrate Laura’s success with this series.

Now how about a tease to get you in the mood for a little Hard Ink?

A word and Excerpt from Laura Kaye:

It’s release day! And I’m so excited to share Hard As You Can, the second book in the Hard Ink series, with all of you here today! Hard As You Can follows the surviving members of a disgraced Army Special Forces team as they fight to regain their stolen honor, and finds their investigation crossing paths with a waitress willing to do whatever it takes to stay alive and protect her younger sister. For Shane McCallan, saving Crystal Dean is a mission he refuses to turn down.

Today, I’ve got a super sexy scene to share with you, one that was a total surprise to me as I was writing it! I hope you enjoy this peek at the first time Shane and Crystal find themselves alone with each other:


“Do you like to dance, Crystal?” Shane asked in a low voice.

 “Uh, what? Why?”

His smile was crooked, playful. “ ’Cause dancing’s something people do when they’re getting to know each other.”

 “Really?” Maybe where he was from. Then again, she worked in a strip club. Dancing was something people did to make money. So, okay, maybe her view of dancing was a bit jaded.

 “Absolutely. Ask anybody.” The song faded away, followed by the announcement of a Southern rock station’s call sign. A new song started, and Shane turned to her with a smile. “Dance with me.”

 Crystal peered up at him without the slightest idea how to respond. Because her body was saying hell, yes!, while her brain was screaming bad idea, really, really bad idea.

He stepped closer, arms raised, expression full of all kinds of invitation.

 The next thing she knew, her right hand was in his and her left had slipped around his neck. Ohmigod, ohmigod, ohmigod, ran over and over in her mind. What am I doing? But then he tucked her hand against his chest and tugged her against him with the hand that settled at her lower back. And the closeness stole her breath.

He moved them to the beat of the song, a slow, sexy, bluesy number she didn’t know but would never forget. Some songs carried memories like the images were imprinted upon the very lyrics themselves, and she had no doubt this would be one of them. 

All of a sudden, the air in the room felt ten degrees warmer. As they swayed to the beat, Shane’s body pressed against hers from thighs to chest. With every step and move and turn, Crystal’s breasts rubbed against the hard plane of his chest. Strong hands held and guided her body, making her want to feel them explore her everywhere. Arousal rose like a waking dragon inside her. Cautious. Curious. Dangerous.

This was wrong and stupid on so many levels. But, scary as it was, it felt so freaking good that she couldn’t force herself to pull away. One song. It’s just a dance. Just a dance just a dance just a dance.

And, holy crap, she wasn’t the only one aroused.

Against her belly, Shane hardened.

 Crystal sucked in a breath, and he pressed his lips close to her ear. “We’re just dancing here. That’s all. I promise,” he said. But the adrenaline was already in her blood, setting her to a trembling she couldn’t control. Part curious interest and part instinctive fear. “Sshh,” he almost cooed. “Just dancing.”

 The echo of her own thoughts from a moment before allowed her to draw a breath that almost calmed. They turned and swayed to the music, moving closer, pressing tighter, Shane’s lips so close to her face that she could feel his breath shudder across her cheekbone.

 He was a fire she had no business playing with. She knew that even as she leaned her face against his . . . and got exactly what she’d hoped for.

He kissed her.

Just a brush of his lips against her cheek, but a kiss all the same.

And as much as it made her head spin, it was the little catch of breath in the back of his throat that sent a jolt of electricity down her spine to settle low in her belly. Light as a feather, he caressed her cheek, her temple, her ear with his lips. With him, always such gentleness, so different from almost every other sexual experience she’d ever had. It made her feel safe to allow this to continue.

 Between them, his erection was firm, long, totally unyielding.

 She shivered, caught between interest and fear, desire a river moving faster and faster inside her. The whole experience was a revelation—that her body had the capacity to respond this way, that a person existed who could pull these reactions from her.

For a moment, she gave herself over to the dizzying sensations. In her mind’s eye, she saw them undressing, fumbling their way back the hall, falling naked and wanting on the bed. What would it be like, just once, to take something that she wanted without worrying about anyone else, without being afraid? Just one wild, secret night, all for her? What would Shane be like? 

So that’s Shane and Crystal for you! Did you have a favorite line? Thanks for reading!


“Edgy, sexy, and full of suspense! A great read from a great new author!”

~J.R. Ward on Hard As It Gets

About Hard As You Can:

Five dishonored soldiers.

Former Special Forces.

One last mission.

These are the men of Hard Ink.

Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he’s shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister’s sake, Crystal can’t get too close. Until her job and Shane’s mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed.

Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation. Nor can he walk away from Crystal. The gorgeous waitress is hiding secrets she doesn’t want him to uncover. Too bad. He’s exactly the man she needs to protect her sister, her life, and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this good, you hold on as hard as you can–and never let go.

Qwen Salsbury’s The Plan

Greetings my friends!


I am so excited to share with you the exciting new release of The Plan, by my good friend, Qwen Salsbury! This story is amazingly snarky, funny, hot, and unique in its styling. Written in the perspective of our heroine, Emma’s, daily journal- we discover her plight in her daily work life- wishing that she could simply be noticed by the gorgeous, yet very difficult Mr. Canon. Does she succeed? Can she invade his steely armor of anal retentive perfection? Can she make it through her duties as his assistant unscathed and triumphant?
And what is the reason for pineapples?
Well- you’ll just have to find out!
the blurb
For the last year, Emma has watched as Alaric Canon roll through personal assistants as each of them doesn’t measure up to his impossible standards. With his piercing eyes and the way that his suits fit his body, Emma decides she needs a plan to get noticed by the temperamental Mr. Canon. When her number comes up to be his PA, however, the plan goes awry and she is definitely noticed…not exactly how she had hoped.
“Emma! You have got to wake up.”
Canon is holding me, but I feel jostled. He’s been shaking me. I gulp down air.
“Shhh.” His hand smoothes my hair out of my face and down my back. Pulling back, he looks at me. “I thought…oh, God, I thought you were being…and I heard you, and I could see the lights, and then and then and th—oh, my God, what the motherfuck are you wearing?”
He propels himself backward from the bed.
This is all so weird. I look down and remember the pity party that ended in donning a peach negligee with black lace inlays and fabric that makes Clara’s sheer robe look like plaid flannel.
“This? This is actually lingerie.”
I told him he would know it if I wore it. I don’t do things halfway.
Deer in headlights. Yeah, that description works here.
And just to keep things straight, I’m sporting the headlights.
Maybe we could call them blips.
I may have just set off the radar…
There’s something about flustered Alaric Canon I can’t get enough of. I’m practically naked, yet he’s the one uncomfortable.
“Why? What did you expect me to wear?” I stand to usher him out…and show off the cute little coordinating panties. “Did you think I sleep in the nude?”
“Goodnight, Ms. Baker,” he calls behind him. He has already crossed the hall.
“And a goodnight to you, Mr. Canon.”

Sydney Logan’s Holiday Short Story- The Little Drummer Boy

It’s release day for Sydney Logan’s latest holiday short story, “The Little Drummer Boy!”

little drummer  the blurb     It’s Christmas Eve, and Justin Banks is on the hunt for a last-minute gift for his wife, Megan. With the help of a homeless man and the beat of a drum, Justin stumbles upon the one thing Megan has always wanted. The one thing money can’t buy.

    It’s amazing what we can hear if we just take a moment and really listen.


Rum pum pum pum.

It’s faint, but it’s there. A quiet, rhythmic beat that blends into the night. How this old man heard the sound is beyond me.

“You hear it, don’t you?”

With a nod, I look around, hoping to find the source of the sound. The man points toward the coffee shop’s covered alleyway.

“Back there,” he says.

The carolers begin their rendition of “O Holy Night,” and once again, I hear the “rum pum pum pum” coming from the darkness.

Intrigued, I step away from the old man and walk slowly toward the alley. Each step brings me closer to the beat, until finally, I see a little boy, nestled in the corner. His only light comes from a lantern, and a snare drum rests in his lap. The drum is scarred and the strap is frayed, but it’s obviously his most prized possession.

Probably his only possession.

Does he live here? In this filthy alley? And where are his parents?

His clothes are dirty and ragged, and the faded blue jacket he wears is about three sizes too big.

“Shall I play for you?” he whispers.

A Fangirl’s Review of Laura Kaye’s HARD AS IT GETS

HARD AS IT GETS smaller release graphic

To say that I am a huge fan of Laura Kaye’s writing may be a bit of an understatement (puts away the Number #1 Foam Finger and settles in for a mature review). I have followed Laura’s career since the very beginning-waiting with bated breath for each novel she has written to be released; and with eager anticipation, enjoyed the news of every new series.

*sidebar* Laura- I promise to never ever go Annie Wilkes on you.

So imagine my excitement when I received my copy of HARD AS IT GETS at a writer’s conference this summer. She even signed it and suffered my furious blushing and stammering. She’s a reader’s joy when she talks with her adoring fans!

Imagine me if you will- scores of books piled up- ready for reading…

Decisions, decisions… whose novel do I leap at the first chance I get?

Pishah… Laura’s of course!

Let me preface this also with a plea in my defense. Forget for a minute that I love everything that Laura has ever penned:

Just LOOK at the cover for HARD AS IT GETS:

HardAsItGets mm c

Hot man- tattoos, a little camouflage and I’m done for. But wait! There’s more!

Because Nick Rixey isn’t just some former military dude with some tats… oh no. The man is former Special Ops (my personal kryptonite) He OWNS the Tattoo parlor our fine heroine finds him in,and has a troubled and tortured past. MERCY!

Add to that a sense of honor, duty, loyalty and commitment to service all wrapped up in a muscle car-driving, tatted up beauty of a man who has issues with coming to terms with his past? Count me in for this series!

Nick meets Becca Merritt (our stubborn and strong heroine) under strained terms. He has issues of blame towards her father, his former CO who Rixey feels is the reason he and his team were relieved of duty to forego a scandal, but something about Becca’s bright blue eyes and plea for his help nags at him. Enough to see him giving in to his stalwart wish to forget about his past and instead help her with something that may, in the end, help to clear his name and his team.

Becca is equal parts vulnerable and strong-willed. She can be as tough as her late father, the Colonel, but fragile and nurturing as a good tough man sometimes needs. And she needs a tough guy. When she discovers her brother, her only family member left alive, has gone missing with a cryptic note to search out Rixey, she is left with few options. And upon meeting Rixey, who’d want to ever leave his side?

The chemistry between the two is scorching. Laura never disappoints her readers in the HOT and STEAMY department. These two sizzle on the pages. Their relationship and the mystery interwoven in the storyline is scintillating and intriguing. While this story could easily stand alone, I am so very excited for the rest of the series- to see how these two solve the mystery, clear their names, find resolution and perhaps (oh yes! oh please) we learn a lot more about the rest of the Special Ops team: Marz, Shane, Easy and Beckett ( OH MY!)

HARD AS IT GETS is available November 26th (that’s today! RUN don’t walk!) with the second book, HARD AS YOU CAN scheduled for February 25th, 2014- There’s four books in all (FANS SELF)

I give this book Five glorious stars- which is better than any four star General. This book is a must read and I can’t wait for the next three!

And just in case you need more to convince you- here’s a hot trailer with tattooed men and Laura Kaye herself:

Guest Post- B.L. Wilde’s Roadside Service Cover Reveal!

Hello friends!

Once again, I would like to introduce you to a wonderful friend of mine and her story! B.L. Wilde will be releasing her book, Roadside Service on September 27th! Here’s a sneak peek at her cover and a naughty little excerpt! Thanks B.L. for letting me share this! 


Cover Design by Jo Matthews

Genre: Erotica

Scheduled Release: September 27, 2013


When fate brings you face-to-face with what your heart desires, how can you ignore it?

Violet Weathers, the world’s top supermodel, is in Omaha, Nebraska for two weeks shooting a campaign for a new skincare line that she’s the fresh new face of.

When her car breaks down on the way to the hotel, she is rescued by a hot mechanic who just might make her stay in Omaha more bearable.


“Have you brought many girls here? Is this like your make-out spot?”

“No, you’re the first,” he chuckled, running his fingers through my hair. “Do you have any idea how beautiful you are? Any guy would give his life to be me right now.”

“I doubt that, Blake.”

“You, Violet, have so much light in you. I’ve never felt so alive before and I know it’s because of you.”

“You can be incredibly sweet,” I groaned as he pulled me down toward his lips. My hands dug into the sand when he deepened the kiss, sweeping his tongue in to meet mine.

Kissing Blake was quickly becoming one of my favorite pastimes.

“I want you, Violet,” he snarled, snaking his hand down my back.

“Here?” I gasped. What if someone saw us? I couldn’t chance any paparazzi catching us and taking pictures. It would be on the front page of every trashy tabloid out there within hours. Something like that coming out could put an end to my career.

“No one comes here. It’s a secluded beach,” he purred, running his fingers up my legs. “Let me love you here, Beautiful.” I couldn’t resist him—I didn’t want to.

Blake effortlessly rolled us over so he was hovering above me. His lips began to move down my jaw while his hands continued their way up my dress.

“I’ve never had sex outside before,” I murmured into his ear as his mouth moved toward my neck.

“Violet Weathers has never had sex outside?” Blake teased, acting horrified at the thought.

“Don’t mock me,” I pouted, slapping his arm playfully.

“I guess I better make this good then, huh? No pressure,” he smoldered, slipping his hand into my panties.

“Fuck…B…Bl…Blake,” I groaned, fisting the sand above my head as his fingers slipped inside me. “A little warning would have been nice.”

“Oh, you love it when I do this,” he mused, stroking my clit. “You’re getting wetter by the second. What is it, Baby? Is it being outside? Does that excite you?” I nodded frantically, closing my eyes as he began to really work my body. “Open the top of your sundress for me,” he said huskily. I did as he asked, quickly unbuttoning it and exposing my baby pink bra to him. “Pull the cups down, too,” he demanded. Blake almost had me at the brink already; I could feel my climax quickly approaching. Pulling my bra cups down, I exposed my breasts to him.

The moment he leaned down and sucked my right nipple into his mouth, I exploded around his fingers.

“Oh…God…Blake,” I groaned out into the open air.

“I love watching you climax,” he grinned from in between my breasts.

“You are very good at making me cum,” I giggled, watching him undo his trousers before tearing open a condom.

“I’m better when I use this,” he mused, gesturing toward his covered erection. Blake pushed my dress up around my waist, caressing my skin as he went. I wrapped my legs around his hips, surprising him by my sudden advance as I drew him closer to me. “A little anxious, are we?” he winked.

“I want to see what all the fuss is about when it comes to outdoor sex,” I countered, lifting my ass up slightly to feel the tip of his cock at my entrance.

Blake’s eyes turned hooded with a deep desire as he grabbed my hips and filled me in one swift motion.

“You better hold on,” he grunted, pulling almost completely out and then slamming right back inside me. “This is going to be rough.”

“Ugh…yes,” I groaned, letting Blake take me to new heights as the sun caressed my skin. I’d never had a sexual experience like it.

“How was that for your first experience with outdoor sex?” Blake asked, doing the buttons on the top of my dress back up.

“Amazing,” I panted, holding my stomach as I tried to regain my breath. “Feeling the breeze touch your skin while someone is bringing you to life…I have no words.”

“Is that how I make you feel?” He looked stunned.

“You make me feel a lot of things, Blake,” I admitted, stroking his chin.

The air between us began to thicken before he finally spoke. “We should open the champagne,” he muttered, watching my lips.

“Good idea,” I beamed, stretching to get the glasses that had fallen into the sand.

The rest of the afternoon was blissful as we lay on the blanket talking about anything and everything, and occasionally getting lost in each other.

My Mr. Manny Book Tour


Hello my friends! I’m so excited to help spread the word for another fabulous author (and another Jennifer to boot) on her whirlwind, debut novel Book Tour! Please let me introduce you to my friend, Jennifer Garcia and her book, My Mr. Manny:



Mia Balducci misses her childhood days and yearns for the big, Italian family that she left behind in small town Massachusetts. At the tender age of sixteen, Mia moves with her bachelor father to Los Angeles, but no matter how many years pass, it never becomes home to her. The years spent living with her father aren’t easy, especially since she can’t stop thinking about what she once had. Her enrollment in the University of Southern California promises to bring exciting changes to her life, but Mia winds up with big problems instead. When she runs into an old friend from her old hometown of Winthrop, she gets swept up in nostalgia, and she soon loses herself in a quickly-progressing romance. When the fantasy falls apart, she is left to raise her precious little girl, Lucia, on her own. The demands of Mia’s work schedule and Lucia’s needs increase, and their lives become increasingly hectic. It is soon clear to Mia that she needs help. Luckily, her life-saving cousin saves the day and brings the mother and daughter a male nanny – their new “manny.”

After losing his high-pressure job on Wall Street, Dominic Roberts wants to follow his dreams to have a family. He’s already one fiancée down, and there are no likely prospects for another. In order to find the family he so desperately wants, he finds himself getting into the manny business. Since he is fully qualified to provide child care and is eager to leave New York City behind, his sister-in-law is able to land him a job in California working for his first client – the beautiful and intriguing Mia Balducci.

Will Lucia like the new man in her mother’s life? Will Mia? And will this new trio discover the happily ever after they all so desperately seek?


I rolled over to face Dominic and he began to stir. I watched him breathe and took inventory of his precious face. His lashes were thick and short against his cheek. The stubble on his face had thickened a bit more and his lips stuck out in a pout. I pecked them and his eyes opened.

“Good morning, sleeping beauty,” I said as he stretched and yawned. He scratched at his stubble and rubbed his eyes. He was adorable in the morning.

“Mhmmm, it is a good morning,” he said with a sleep-coated voice. He wrapped and tightened his arms around me and then squeezed. “A very good morning.”

“I need to get up and get ready for work. Lucia will be up in a bit. But …” I began to say.

“What’s wrong?”

I exhaled a deep breath. “No, nothing’s wrong, but … well I really want you to move into my room now. Too soon?” I wasn’t afraid he’d say no, but for some reason I felt strange asking him that.

He scoffed. “Did you think I was going to sleep in my room after last night? I had the best night of my life” he said while peppering soft, slow kisses on my face.

“It was my best night, too, baby.” I kissed him one more time and got up. “So, it’s official then. You’re moving in here and we’re a real couple.” I jerked my head in a nod to emphasize my statement.

He rolled on top of me, pinning me down on the bed. “I thought it was a given, Mia. You’re stuck with me forever now. I hope you can handle me.” He laughed.

“Mhmmm, I can handle you all right. I just hope you can handle me.” I kissed his lips.
