rock redemption cover


Kit Devigny could have loved rock guitarist Noah St. John. Their friendship burned with the promise of intense passion and searing tenderness…until the night Noah deliberately shattered her heart.

Noah knows he destroyed something precious the night he chose to betray Kit, but he’d rather she hate him than learn his darkest secret. All he has left is his music. It’s his saving grace, but it doesn’t silence the voices that keep him up at night. Chasing oblivion through endless one-night-stands, he earns a few hours’ sleep and his bad boy reputation.

When a media error sees Noah and Kit dubbed the new “it” couple, Kit discovers her chance at the role of a lifetime hinges on riding the media wave. Wanting—needing—to give Kit this, even if he can’t give her everything, Noah agrees to play the adoring boyfriend. Only the illusion is suddenly too real, too painful, too beautiful…and it may be too late for the redemption of Noah St. John.


Excerpt from ROCK REDEMPTION by Nalini Singh

Kit groaned at the sound of her phone. Reaching out blindly toward the nightstand, she hurled mental curses upon herself for forgetting to turn it off so she could catch some uninterrupted sleep before her four-a.m. makeup call.

It’d be fun and great for her career, her agent had said when recommending Kit take the superhero flick. Coming off two serious and emotionally wrenching projects, Kit had taken Harper’s advice and jumped on board the high-budget, high-octane venture. Unfortunately, Harper had forgotten to mention the four hours it would take to put her into the head-to-toe makeup required for the role. Daily.

“What?” she snarled into the phone without checking to see who it was.

“Hey, Katie.”

Every cell in her body snapped wide awake. Lifting her eyelids, she just stared at the ceiling through gritty eyes. Her heart thumped, her throat moving convulsively as she swallowed. She hated that he could still do this to her, hated it, but her visceral response to Noah wasn’t something she could stop. She knew because she’d tried for the past two years and three months.

“Noah,” she said flatly. “Do you know what time it is?”

“Two fifteen,” he answered.

Kit should’ve hung up. God, he’d hurt her. So much. But there was something in his voice that had her sitting up. “Are you drunk?” One thing she knew about Noah: no matter his bad-boy rep, he was never wasted. He might give a good indication of it, but look closely and those dark gray eyes were always sober.

“Probably.” A silence, followed by, “I just wanted to hear your voice. Sorry for waking you.”

“Wait,” she said when he would’ve hung up. “Where are you?”

“Some dive.” He took a deep breath, released it in a harsh exhale. “I’m sorry for being an asshole. I wanted to tell you that. I don’t want to go without saying that.”

“Noah,” she said, a horrible feeling in her stomach. “Where exactly are you?”

“The Blue Flamingo Inn off Hollywood Boulevard. Far, far, far off.” He laughed, and it held no humor. “It has a neon sign of a blue—surprise!—flamingo that’s flashing right through my window. Looks like someone stole the curtains.”

Having already grabbed her laptop, which she’d left beside the bed after answering some e-mails before sleep claimed her, she found the Blue Flamingo Inn. But Noah was already gone, having said, “I love your voice, Kit,” in an oddly raw tone before hanging up.

He didn’t pick up when she called back.

“Damn it! Damn it!” She shoved aside the blanket under which she’d been buried, having turned the AC to ice-cold as she usually did at night. Shivering, she tugged on a pair of jeans and an old sweatshirt over the panties and tank top in which she’d gone to sleep.

Pulling her black hair into a rough ponytail to keep it out of her eyes, she ran through the house, phone in one pocket, credit card and driver’s license in the other. In the kitchen, she grabbed her keys off the counter and shoved her feet into the tennis shoes by the door that led to the garage.

She was in her car and on the way to the motel three minutes after Noah had hung up, mouth dry and an ugliness in her gut. “Please be okay, please be okay, please be okay,” she kept saying, the mantra doing nothing to calm her down, but at least it kept her mind focused.

She wanted to call Molly and Fox, or the others in the band, but no one was currently in the city. Schoolboy Choir had completed the final show in the band’s hugely successful tour just over two weeks earlier. Day after that, they’d all gone their separate ways to recharge and regroup.

“Much as I love these guys,” David had said with a grin that reached the dark gold of his eyes, “I’ve been looking at their ugly mugs daily for months. We need to go blow off some steam separately before we start snarling at each other.”

At the time, Kit had nodded in understanding, having had that same experience while working on location for long periods. Tonight, however, she wished the others were all here, not scattered across the country, because something was very wrong with Noah.

“Noah doesn’t do drugs,” she told herself as she drove as fast as she dared, not wanting to risk getting pulled over and further delayed. “He isn’t the kind to—” She couldn’t say it, couldn’t even think of Noah ending his life. “No,” she said firmly, her hands white-knuckled on the steering wheel. “Noah isn’t like that.”

I’ve been wanting to read Kit and Noah’s story and couldn’t wait for their turn. Rock Redemption hits the right notes.  I loved them together.  At times the struggle for them to finally get together was lengthy but felt realistic.

One of the best things in a series is seeing more of past featured characters.  I love the guys of Schoolboy Choir.  I’m looking forward to the next installment in Nalini Singh’s Rock Kiss series.

Once Upon a Dare Synopsis:

The first night was a dare. The second night was trouble…

Advertising guru Olivia Masterson is all work and no play. But on the eve of earning her dream promotion, her best friend dares her to drop her ice queen façade for one night and seduce a sexy stranger. Olivia’s worked her ass off to get where she is-why the hell not?
Cole Bennett never thought he’d run into his feisty one-night stand at the office, furious that he stole her promotion. No matter how hard she tries to ice him out, they can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves…or their clothes on.
Olivia’s talented-maybe even more than Cole-so when his dropped hints to the boss net her a promotion of her own, he’s ready to celebrate…until she accuses him of fueling office rumors that she slept her way to the top. She wants to earn her own way? Fine. So what the hell does a guy have to do to permanently melt an ice queen?

Teaser 5


“Take it from me,” Chloe grumbled. “I’ve got a long list of one-night stands to prove that a night of great sex doesn’t equal ‘I do’. Why deny your carnal urges? Look around.” She gestured to the crowd. “Are you really that oblivious to all this sexy man candy?”

“I appreciate a good looking guy as much as the next girl, but—”

“Bullshit,” Chloe argued, crossing her arms and giving her ample breasts an unnecessary lift that was sure to turn a few heads.

“What? I do!”

“Oh, really?” Chloe smirked, locking eyes with Olivia. “Prove it, Ice Queen.”

“Would you cut that out? What are you even talking about?”

“I dare you to seduce one of these delicious stud muffins,” Chloe challenged, a lascivious grin transforming her face. “And I get to choose which one.”

“Man candy? Stud muffins?” Olivia arched her brow. “Are you hungry? Do you need me to get you a snack?”

“I. Dare. You.”

“You cannot be serious.” Olivia scoffed, tapping her fingers idly on the table and avoiding Chloe’s intense stare. “What are we, twelve? I am not going to have sex with some random guy on a dare.”

“Your loss,” Chloe chided, smiling coyly. “Don’t you at least want to see what you’re missing?”

She looked up at him, feeling the need to break the awkwardness of this encounter, but she wasn’t sure how. “Gavin, I said some things the other night…”

“We both did.”

She stopped and met his eyes this time, something she’d been trying not to do. He had this power over her when she held his gaze. “I was dealing with some things at home, and I took them out on you.”

“We both overreacted. It happens.”

Was this Gavin being reasonable? She expected the hot-tempered Italian, not the easy-going man before her. “Yeah. I was dealing with my mom and—”

“It seems we both have some stressors in our lives,” Gavin whispered to her. His breath was warm on her face. All she had to do was tilt her head up, and they’d be touching. And man, she wanted it, but was too afraid to take it. “Eventually, though, we have to deal with them.”

“Oh, my God, just kiss and make up already!” Misha called from the living room. “It’s kinda sickening how stubborn you two are.”

Zoe’s face warmed even more. She’d forgotten about Misha.

Gavin grinned. “He’s got a point.” His warm hands came around her face, holding her jaw in his palms. He tilted her face up toward his, his nose barely touching hers. “I’ve wanted to do this for days.” His mouth came down on hers before she could say a word. Warmth and strength surrounded her, some from him, most just caused by him.

He coaxed her mouth open and slid his tongue inside, gently caressing hers, but not yielding control for a moment. She gripped the collar of his shirt like a lifeline as one of his hands gripped her neck, and the other slid from her face to her hip. He pressed them together at the hips and before she knew it, her back hit the wall behind her.

She grunted, but she didn’t let go of him. Her leg wrapped around his, pulling him closer as they kissed. She was losing herself in his arms, and she didn’t think she could dig herself back out. Not that she wanted to ever let go. But when they separated for air, it didn’t help Zoe. She was still breathless.

Clapping behind Gavin surprised her. She dropped her leg with a sharp, audible intake of breath. Misha stood behind him, slow clapping with a big grin on his face. Meanwhile, Gavin’s erection pressed against her pelvis, straining against his jeans. His big body held her while his head dropped to her shoulder, not moving away from her.

“You’re such an asshole, Misha,” Gavin said against her collarbone.

“You guys put a hell of a show on,” Misha said, his Russian drawl thick with interest. “Don’t stop on my account. It’s hot.” Zoe’s eyes drifted from Misha’s broad shoulders, down to his narrow waist. Gavin chuckled against her shoulder, the vibrations of his laugh echoing through her body.

“You find this funny?” Zoe whispered in his ear.

He lifted his head and met her eyes. “A little bit.” His hands wandered over her body, one cupping her breasts, and lightly kneading the soft flesh.

She hissed. “Stop.”

“Do you really want me to stop?”

No. “Yes,” she said, but even she could hear the doubt in that word, and by the sound of his chuckle, so did he.


debbiesreviewScoring His Heart is the third book in the Texas Highlanders Ice Hockey series.  I enjoyed this latest in the series.  Gavin, Zoe and Misha are likable characters and I was turning the pages to see what was going to happen next.  Scoring His Heart was a quick read and maybe a longer story would have let me feeling like there was more of a resolution in their relationship.  I’ve missed the first two books in the series and will be looking to catch up on those stories.

“Are you not pleased with the items that I have arranged for you?”

My brow furrows. “How did you know what I like? Do you have spies watching me to ensure that I’m not digging into your business a little too much?”

He chuckles. “You act as though you still believe me to be afraid of you, Margo. I thought by now we’ve figured each other out. I don’t seem to rattle you, and you damn sure don’t affect me.”

“So what’s with all my favorite things on this flight?” I fire back.

He shrugs. “I’m observant. There’s not much that I don’t notice about the people around me, and let’s just say that I’ve taken a very big interest in what you’re up to. I like to know what makes people tick. It makes it easier for me to break them.”

Blog Tour – GETTING DIRTY by Mia Storm


GD Amazon SW GR



A poem by Blaire Leon


If sex is dirty, why would I do it with someone I love?

If sex is dirty, then didn’t we all come from the dirt?

What if I like the dirt?

What if I want to get dirty?

What if I want to roll in the mud until I’m so fucking filthy that I’ll never be clean again?


When twenty-five-year-old graduate assistant Caiden Brenner asked Blaire Leon how old she was, she said she was a senior. He chose to believe she meant in college. They connect over Lord Byron’s Don Juan and, as their conversations become increasingly thicker with sexual innuendo, Caiden finds himself obsessing over a totally off-limits undergrad who’s bold, beautiful, brilliant, and one of the most passionate poets he’s ever met.

But it turns out Blaire hasn’t been totally honest. She’s the seventeen-year-old valedictorian of her high school class, taking courses at Sierra State while awaiting her acceptance to Stanford.

Will Caiden get too deeply into Blaire to back away before he finds out the truth? Or will their connection be enough to seduce him into risking his entire future on Jail Bait?

GD teaser 1 (1)


“What year are you?” I don’t even realize I’ve said it until it’s out of my mouth.

Her eyes flick from the book to mine. “A senior.”

I feel my eyebrows arch before I can stop them. “You look younger.”

She bites her lips between her teeth for a moment. “Is that good or bad?”

“Neither, I suppose.” But my insides burn, knowing that she’s not as off-limits as I originally thought. It’s nearing the end of January. Commencement will be here soon enough. She graduates and all bets are off.

“So…” she says, twisting a finger into the ends of her hair. “I know you like old, dead poets. How do you feel about hearing something fresher?”

I lean toward her. “Such as?”

“I’m reading in a poetry slam tonight. It’s just something over at Tino’s in Jonestown on the fourth Friday of every month. There’s no prize money or anything, but I perform something new pretty much every month.”

“A poetry slam…” I want to say yes in the worst way, but it feels dangerously like a date.

She must read the hesitation in my eyes. “If it’s too weird, no worries. I just thought, since you like poetry…”

She leaves the thought dangling. Like a noose. And I jump right into it. “Yeah. Why not?”

The answer to that rhetorical question is that it’s not May yet and she hasn’t graduated. I’m risking everything I’ve worked the last three years toward. My entire future. But the voice of reason is being drowned out by the raging waves of something rolling up from the deepest layers of my being like an undertow. Something base and essential. And unrelenting.

“Do you want to meet me there?” she asks, standing from her seat and giving me a better view of the entire exquisite length of her.

“Yeah…that’s probably best.” Plausible deniability. No, Dr. Duncan, I didn’t have any clue she’d be there. Just went to hear the poetry.

“Great,” she says as she gathers her book and shoves it in her bag. “It starts at nine. There are usually five or six poets and it’s a random draw, so I don’t know what time I’ll be reading.”

I nod without standing, no longer able to tame my erection. “I’ll be there at nine.”

“You know where Tino’s is?”

Electricity crackles under my skin. I’m really doing this. “Yeah. I’ll find it.”




I loved Getting Dirty!  A few days have passed and I’m still thinking about Blaire and Caiden.  Mia Storm does an amazing job with a controversial topic, delivering a steamy, sexy read that had my emotions running the gamut.  I’m looking forward to reading more from Mia Storm.

Road Captain of the Devil’s Dust Motorcycle Club, Bobby has the scars to prove just how dangerous his life is. He gives the world he knows hell and loves every moment of it. Wearing a panty-dropping grin along the way, his fierce life has never been a problem for him, until her. Jessica is the only female who has him distracted in his game. After taking him to bed, she’s the only woman to tell him to take a hike. Waking with her gone, he can’t resist her pull. He’s seen the marks on her body, ones which tell the horrors she’s lived through. He’s also seen the fear in her eyes when she lets herself become weak to his advances. Bobby has a decision to make. Can he help Jessica, or will it mean giving up his carefree life?

Jessica, also known as Doc, lives life in fear. Years back, she ran to the Devil’s Dust for protection, seeking the demise of her abusive, dominant husband. Her mind and soul tortured by her past, she can’t allow herself to move forward. The only thing in her sight is her daughter’s safety. Even if she has the attention of one particular tattooed biker, she can’t succumb to his charm and drag her daughter back into a world of danger, no matter how much he thinks he can save her.

Mistakes will be made.

Fears will be faced.

Pain will be remembered.

Can Bobby and Jessica survive the dangers they bring upon themselves?



Do I fight my fear? Triumph the terror wracking my mind and soul and gamble on the chance that Bobby can reset it all, make me forget my past and actually restart and build a life without being afraid? Or do I do what I know best, resisting, and run home behind my door with the security of three deadbolts and wonder what if?

Not having read the preceding stories in the Devil’s Dust, I was a little lost in the first part of The Fear That Divides Us.  Forgy gives the readers a nice set up with the prologue but the intricacies in relationships are missed without reading the earlier books.

I did enjoy Bobby and Jessica’s story.  I loved that we see character growth and their relationship development.  And I thought it was a bit fresh that it wasn’t necessarily the guy that was backing off on the issue of commitment and a relationship.

I’ll need to get caught up on the Devil’s Dust series.  I’m looking forward to seeing where this series goes next.

 A Succubus Kiss Novel, Book 1

New Adult Paranormal Romance

Release: February 24, 2015



Life isn’t so bad for succubus, Kenna Blake. True, she seems to be the only succubus with a conscience and a specific strategy for finding her male meals, but she has a cute new apartment, a budding graphic design business, and the most unique friends she’s ever had.

Her personal love life, however, is non-existent.

Until the legendary vampire Randal Vincent sweeps into her life. Even though he isn’t someone she set out to date, at least she can kiss him without killing him. But when you’re dating some- one who’s the inspiration for Dracula, there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way…

It’s been some time since my last paranormal read and Seduce was a great re-entry to the genre.  I enjoyed this first book in the Succubus Kiss series.  I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

Seduce was a fun, easy and enjoyable read.  The characters that are introduced will have you wanting to know more.  I loved Dex, he kept me smiling.  I liked Kenna and can’t wait to see what awaits her in the next book.  And Randal, he is still all mystery.
