Betrayal by Jenna Jaxon

Time Enough to Love
Book Two
Jenna Jaxon

Genre: Historical Romance

Tagline:  The worst betrayals come from within.

Book Description:

After a night of passion with her betrothed, Sir Geoffrey Longford, Lady Alyse de Courcy is eagerly looking forward to her wedding.  But when Geoffrey is forced to marry another, a heartbroken and possibly pregnant Alyse finds herself in her own private hell. She must either gamble with her reputation or marry someone she does not love.

A reputed connoisseur of women, Thomas, Lord Braeton, has dallied with many ladies of King Edward’s court, although he has favored none.  However, as Geoffrey’s best friend, Thomas has sworn to serve and protect Alyse, an oath now sorely tested when he agrees to marry her—in name only—to guard her reputation. Yet, as they grow closer, and Thomas discovers Alyse’s sweet but spirited nature, he comes to desire a marriage in truth.  Can he overcome her memory of Geoffrey or is Thomas doomed to burn with passion for a woman he can never possess?

Uncertain how to distract him from his obvious goal, she strove to reply lightly. “I am sure whatever they have in the kitchen will be fine.” Her words emerged rather higher pitched than normal, drawing a laugh from her husband.
“Then I will send word to say we will be down directly.” He brushed a brief kiss over her lips and left the bed to don his clothes, giving her a clear look at the well-muscled back and wonderfully taut buttocks.
Oh yes, she remembered those.
Her sharp intake of breath must have reminded him of his nakedness, for he turned his head to her. “Look your fill, my sweet. Turnabout is fair play.”
The silence grew while she reasoned out his words. Then her squeal rent the air. “Thomas! You did not!”
Clad only in his braies and hose, he turned to face her. “You are quite beautiful, Alyse. All of you, I might add.” He looked hungrily at her. “I am a man who has had the pleasure of seeing many women in his life, and I must confess, you are one of the loveliest. You should not be ashamed to take such a compliment from your husband.” He winked at her. “Of course, your husband is the only one who will give you such compliments from now on.” He continued his leisurely dressing.
“I could say the same thing for you, my dear.” Her words caught Thomas by surprise, as she had intended, and his brows rose. She sensed his question and hurried to make sure he understood. “That you too are quite beautiful.” Then a devilish idea took root. “Unfortunately, I have little experience of other men to judge you by, which makes my judgment worth much less.” She pretended to think, one finger propping up her cheek. “Unless, of course, you will allow me to gather some knowledge of other men’s bodies. If not, I fear I will have to remain a poor judge of you.”
Thomas’s head popped through his tunic as she uttered that sentiment. His startled expression sent Alyse into a fit of laughing. He began to stalk her, a roguish smile playing about his lips. “You want experience of other men’s bodies while you have little enough of your own husband’s? Come, sweet goose, let us become better acquainted.” He leaped for her as she shrieked and dove across the bed.

In A Heartbeat by Hilary Storm

Eaven Bennett is a college student with a passion for photography. She has high hopes of completing college and starting a new life as she moves away from her hometown with her best friend, Ivy Adams. Her last boyfriend ruined any chance of her trusting ever again.

Talon Walker is the dark and intriguing drummer for the up and coming band ‘Rebel Walking’. A tragedy in his past has left him empty with no desire for a relationship. That is until he meets Eaven.

One minute your heart is filled with love, the next your entire life comes crashing down. Everything can change in a heartbeat. Can Eaven and Talon overcome the obstacles in their way and find love?

I was given this book for an honest review.

This book was SO good! I was already really looking forward to reading it, and the author did not let me down. I was so engrossed in the story I was agitated at every disruption and couldn't put it down. I loved how feisty all the characters were and they made for a very interesting novel. This book had humor and sweetness and was full of hot and spicy scenes. I enjoyed every minute of this book without a doubt. I felt the author portrayed each emotion beautifully and captured this love story perfectly! My only complaint; which isn't really that big, is that there were a lot of "I am" and such phrases that should really have been shortened and combined to better depict a more common language. Other than that it was perfect and I cannot wait to read the next installment!

A Beautiful Mess by T.K. Leigh

Beautiful Mess Book Blitz Banner Synopsis 
 What happens when you lose everyone that promised they would always be there for you? How can you protect the few pieces of your shattered heart that remain? Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. Until Alexander Burnham walks into her life one night and changes everything. But he has issues of his own. And he’s keeping a secret that could change everything. Will Olivia let Alexander in enough for him to get close and protect her from a force threatening her very existence, or will she push him away, scared of letting Alexander in, in order to protect her heart? A Beautiful Mess is the first installment of a three part series sure to captivate the heart with a story of secrets, courage, and love.
 Olivia eyed Alexander as she tasted the delicious wine. “So, Antonio seems excited that you’re here with me. Any reason for that?” Alexander placed his wine glass on the table and grabbed Olivia’s hand. “To be honest, it seems we have a little something in common, Miss Adler. I don’t really do the relationship thing either. I like to fuck and leave all those emotional attachments out of it. I’ve certainly never taken a woman out like this before, apart from the obligatory charity functions I am expected to be at.” Olivia looked down, not wanting to hear what he was going to say next. She actually enjoyed spending time with Alexander and for once wanted more than just an occasional hook-up, but it sounded as though that was all he was interested in. But why the Red Sox game? Why the wine and dine? And why didn’t he make his move at Beer Works when Olivia made it rather clear that she wanted him to kiss her? Alexander continued speaking, breaking her away from her growing unsettled emotions. “But, there’s just something about you, Olivia. You make me want to break all my rules. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I’m beginning to not care.” Butterflies erupted in Olivia’s stomach at his words. She felt the same way. Looking up, she smiled as she met Alexander’s eyes. “That doesn’t mean that I still don’t want to fuck you senseless, Miss Adler,” he winked as the waiter arrived to take their order, leaving Olivia completely shocked.

Billionaire Luke Blackwell made the biggest mistake of his life when he married the wrong Walker sister, but that’s one mistake he intends to rectify.

Cailin’s stayed away for the past three years to fight what she feels.

But all it takes is one drunken mistake for passion to ignite.

Losing it all might just be worthy.

The FORBIDDEN LUST novellas are erotic romances intended for mature audiences.

I was given this book for an honest review.

This book was good, but left me jumping back and forth on how I felt about the situation. I think the author made a realistic choice for the ending and still left readers happy. They have their work cut out for them, but it seems fate is finally taking a stand and bringing these two lovers together. I enjoyed reading it and thought the characters developed well within the relationship. It was a quick read and good for any reader who likes a good second chance at love story.

“Landry, honey, are you hurt? Landry, look at me.” Jack reached over and pulled her up by her shoulders. Once she was standing, he wrapped his arms around her and held her tightly. He could feel her shaking and she buried her head into his chest. They stood there like that for several minutes until her tremors subsided then she straightened up and pulled herself out of his arms. “Are you hurt?” he asked again, lifting her chin with his finger so that he could look at her. An angry knot twisted in his stomach when he saw the dark mark on her face. Her cheeks were wet and streaked from the tears that had fallen and he couldn’t resist the temptation to wipe them away. He slowly brushed his thumb across her cheek, first one side then the other and heard her soft intake of breath. In the dim lamplight, he saw her eyes widen as he lowered his mouth to hers and kissed her. It was a soft kiss, the merest brushing of his lips on hers but it was enough to make him instantly hard. He pulled away and took a step back, trying to get himself under control. After what she had just been through, he didn’t think it was entirely appropriate to take her to bed, which is what he wanted to do in the worst way. No woman had ever had this effect on him before. He had known Landry for over two years. How had he never noticed her before?
