Release Day – SHAME by Rachel Van Dyken

Everything done in darkness, will eventually be brought into the light.

I ran, but all it did was keep me one step ahead of my past. I tried to start over; new name, new identity. But you can’t change your soul.

A fresh start at college was just what I needed. For a while, it worked. I was the party girl, the one that seemed confident, but it was a lie.

When guys kissed me–I felt only pain.

When they touched me–Nothing but fear.

Deep inside, every girl wants to be the beauty in the story, to find someone that will see you as their world.

But the truth? I was the beast. And as much as I wanted redemption, I wasn’t fool enough to think I’d ever get it.

Until he walked into my life.

I wasn’t prepared to fall for someone. My scars were too deep, the wounds too raw. But he offered me peace, he offered me security. I should have known it was just another lie–I should have known that falling in love with my professor was a bad idea. But I was powerless to stop myself from falling. And he was powerless to catch me.
Because the darkness finally caught up to me, and as fate would have it, a cruel twist almost bled me dry. But I’m stronger than I knew. I’m stronger than you think.
You think you know my story, but you don’t….after all everyone has Shame in their lives– and I’m no longer afraid to show you mine.

Amazing journey with INDECENT PROPOSAL by Molly O’Keefe




 September 2014

Boys of Bishop, book #4



 Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.

With his chiseled jaw and his thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing and there is only one solution: marriage.

Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who’d given her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love.

My Review

I love the Boys of Bishop series and couldn’t wait to read Indecent Proposal.  Sex, politics, family and love…the makings of a story to remember.  At first I just wasn’t sure if I was going to like the Harrison and Ryan match.  It wasn’t very long before I was convinced it couldn’t be any other way.   Both are strong characters but we get that glimpse of vulnerability that is irresistible.

Molly O’Keefe continues to deliver emotion-packed contemporaries that are filled with realistic characters that stay with you.  If you haven’t picked up the Boys of Bishop, you’re missing out on strong characters that pull you into their lives and have you remembering them long after the last page.

Release Day – TYLER’S UNDOING by L. P. Dover

She was what he wanted … but she was also his undoing.
Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end. It’s a
decision that not only saves their friendship, but it’s one that will change
his life forever.
For the past couple of years, Tyler Rushing has been known as one of the UFC’s most memorable and sexy
heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the fame
he so deserves. He has everything he could ever want until Kacey Andrews walks
through the door of his gym, wanting nothing to do with him. Keeping his eyes
off of her is a challenge; there’s an innocence about her that draws him to
her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Little does he know
that Kacey Andrews isn’t a stranger. She’s a part of his world; he just doesn’t
know it. It’s a secret she’s worked hard to keep hidden.
Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who’s hated among the MMA elite
… her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she’s brought back into it when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart wins her over, drawing her in. The only
problem is that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler has a decision to make, and it’s one that can possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life …

“I have one more question for you,” she murmured, leaning her head against the seat and biting her lip provocatively.  Her skin tight green T-shirt hung so close to her skin I could see her nipples peeking through the fabric; I wanted to taste them, to roll my tongue around them and make them pucker more. I wanted to taste all of her.

“What’s the question?” I growled low, watching her tongue slide across her lips.

Slowly, she moved forward and stopped only an inch away from me, her mouth so achingly close. It killed me to keep my calm, to not pick her up, carry her into my house, throw her on my bed, and just fuck her like I’d been dying to do since the day I met her. I had never wanted someone so bad and not be able to have them.

“I’m ready for you, Tyler. Are you ready for me?”

Grasping the back of her neck, I brought her closer and gently nipped her bottom lip making her gasp. “You have no fucking idea.”



Two is always better than one.
What would you do if you were given the chance to spend the night with not one, but two fighters? Would you do it? Could you open yourself up to the pleasures they offered and do exactly what they said in order to pass on to the next round?
It was common knowledge that Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the bed as they were in the ring. The only problem was that if you didn’t pass their test on the first night, then you didn’t proceed to the next round. They loved a good fight, and that’s what they got when they met Ashleigh Warren.
Ashleigh knew what was going to happen when the twins approached her with a proposition, and needless to say, she knew exactly how to handle them … or so she thought. The rules had changed, and in order to get them both she had to first spend one night with each and last until they were done with her. It was a proposition she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. However, it was one that she was going to enjoy.
When you’re told to stay away from someone or something it only drives the urge to go after it more. In this case, that was exactly what happened. For years, Gabriella Reynolds—younger sister of MMA’s Heavyweight Champion, Matt Reynolds—was warned by him to stay away from his fighter friends; she deserved better and they would only break her heart.
Did she listen? Yes, for a while, but temptation can only consume you so much until you fall into its trap. There’s a certain fighter she’s interested in, and it just so happens that he’s her brother’s best friend, the only one that is completely off limits to her. However, she’s not the only one fighting temptation. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction to her, but he’s afraid she’ll want more and he can’t give that to her. When he finds out that’s not the case … everything changes.

Secrets can be dangerous, but they can also be thrilling and intense. Gabriella and Tyler have no choice but to keep their time together a secret … and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.

Adult Contemporary Romance

Second Chances Series

Release: October 6, 2014


From the author of No Reverse, comes a life-changing journey to Paris and a chance to find l’amour again.

Eleanor Carrington knows how to love, and to love deeply. She also knows how it feels to have your heart torn to pieces. The blue-blooded daughter of a political heavyweight, she has never wanted for anything…

… Except the love of two very different men.

She was engaged to her second lover, Joshua McBride, only to find out he already had a wife and a child. After that ego-bashing experience, she flees to Paris to stay with her self-medicated mother. While keeping her mom from popping pills like gummy bears, Eleanor launches a new, no-strings-attached life plan: sleeping around and absolutely NO falling in love whatsoever. On her part at least, because her self-esteem could do with one or two Frenchmen going un peu crazy for her.

What she doesn’t need is for Grand Amour Number One to burst back into her life. What she doesn’t need is all-American Zachary Murdoch—or a more mature and sensitive version of him—to schmooze his way into her life again.

Now a club-owner in Paris, Zach is intrigued by the troubled woman who was once the sweet girl he had to give up. Offering a shoulder for her to cry on is what he owes her. Falling for her is what he has lost the right to.

But Paris is known as the City of Love for a reason…

Will he be her turn at love?

*** You Turn is a contemporary adult romance and part of the Second Chances series. However, Lenor’s story can be read as a stand-alone novel. There is no cliffhanger. ***

L.M. Creations Testimonials

‘Louisa @ LM Creations is a skilled cover artist and designer. Reaching out to her as an author, alien to the world of design, I was immediately reassured and felt confident in her talented hands. She has an amazing eye for detail, and walked me through every step of the design process, offering suggestions, ideas and always wanting the best for me and my book cover, A Perfect Moment. I will definitely be returning to Louisa @ LM Creations, for my design needs.’


Covers sell. First impressions count. Give your book the best chance by having a professional cover done by a cover artist who has the skills and talent to transform the vision from your words and story into an artistic masterpiece that will help you not only sell more books, but stand out from the overcrowded marketplace.

There are a few things that can be a real pain in the butt for an author – one of them is finding a cover artist who has the talent, the vision and the understanding to translate a brief (the authors ideas) into a spectacular work of art.

And that’s where I got lucky. I met Louisa from LM Creations through a mutual friend whose covers were sensational and I wanted to give my books the same chance to be noticed by readers.

Louisa is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is talented, interprets an authors vision with ease, but even more so, she is lovely to work with, delivers over and above what is expected and goes the extra mile to make each cover special. I plan to work with Louisa on many more covers in future, because I know I’ll always get what I want. There is no bigger recommendation than going back to work with somebody again because you trust them with your baby. And I trust Louisa 100%.

I only have one small problem with Louisa’s work: how on earth can I keep the beautiful finished covers to myself before reveal day and sit on it without showing it off to the world?? I am so in love with the awesome cover for “No Regrets” that I’m going to have a hard time waiting to share it.

Louisa also did the cover for the Born To Ride Biker Collection and it was pot on, exactly portraying through images what the set was all about. They say a picture is worth a thousand words – Louisa has that nailed!

Thank you Louisa for the beautiful work you have done and I look forward to working with you on many more covers.

Best of luck for your future career,

Jani Kay’
