Heres a teaser from one of the books to tempt you

Excerpt from Blood Flame by Caris Roane

Connor plundered Iris’s mouth, knowing he shouldn’t, but unable to help himself. He’d craved her for months. Now she was in his arms and telling him she was falling for him, too.

She tasted sweet, like a ripe plum. He licked her tongue and heard her moan in response. He slid his hand over her breast, her nipple already peaked as he began to fondle her. A streak of desire shot through his cock. He glided his hand to her waist and pulled her t-shirt from her jeans, then smoothed his fingers over her stomach and up to her bra. He caressed her again through the soft fabric then plucked at her nipples.

She groaned and pushed at him, though he wasn’t sure why. When he drew back, he saw that her cheeks were flushed. He was about to call a halt to everything, thinking maybe she was too weak to continue. But she suddenly leaned back just enough to take her shirt off and set her hair free from her ponytail. He held her loosely in his arms the whole time to keep her from falling backward.

She wanted this as much as he did.

His gaze was caught by the white mounds of her breasts. His jaw trembled with need. Using his arm to support her, she was able to reach behind and unclasp her bra.

His intake of breath was a slow hiss as his gaze floated over her bare breasts. Her nipples were erect and with a grunt he fell on her chest, taking as much of her left breast in his mouth as he could.

But his pants had become a serious hindrance. Time to get rid of some of these clothes. His voice sounded hoarse to his own ears.

She eagerly slid off his lap to sit on the grass. Shirt off, she commanded. I want to look at you.

He smiled, knowing the effect his muscled body had on women. He was on his knees as he lost the tank.

But she held out a hand, stopping him from moving. He didn’t know why, until her gaze took in his shoulders, his chest, his stomach. She shifted to her knees as well and with her hands caressed his chest, feeling him up.

The altered life had given him strength. He pumped iron, but only required a quarter of the time his human counterparts would need to get the defined look the Border Patrol men carried. She fondled his pecs, and he wasn’t surprised when she leaned into him and took some of his flesh in her mouth.

The suckling had his cock standing straight up and begging for the same kind of attention. While she worked his chest, he unbuttoned his leathers and began pulling them down, freeing his erection.

As she continued to touch him and suck on his pecs, she kept making small moans and coos, all sorts of sounds that helped him know how much she was into him.

Was this really happening?

He’d had many fantasies about making love to her, but none of them equaled the simple touch of her tongue, her lips, her hands. A soft witch energy flowed from her as well, as much an erotic sensation as everything else she was doing.

When she leaned back, panting, he went to work on her jeans. Of course by the time he had them peeled down to her knees, he realized he had to get rid of her shoes.

He untied them as quickly as he could. But once he had the rest of her clothes off, she surrounded his cock with both hands, fondling him. He was still on his knees and his leathers had him trapped. She scooted closer, smiling up at him.

All he could do was stare at her awestruck.

I think I know what you’re feeling, she said. It’s as though we’re the first people in the entire world to have ever done this.

Your touch is like that for me.


About the books in this offer:



Kissed by a Dark Prince

by Felicity Heaton

Olivia thinks it’s her lucky night when a dangerously handsome unconscious fae ends up on her inspection table. He’s her chance to redeem herself with her employer, the demon-hunting organisation, Archangel. But when the tall, dark and deadly immortal warrior awakes, she gets much more than she bargained for…

Attacked by his enemy in the elf kingdom, the last thing Prince Loren expects when he comes around is a beautiful angel watching over him. Hazy from his injuries, all he can focus on is the pulse ticking in her throat and the sweet allure of her blood.

One single bite reveals she is his eternal mate, triggering a bond between them that will leave him weakened until it is completed… or broken, and pulling Olivia into the crossfire of his ancient feud.

Will Loren be strong enough to place duty before desire and give up the one thing he has waited millennia for and craves above all others his eternal mate? And will Olivia be able to resist the incredible heat that burns between them and the temptation of her dark prince’s kiss?



Blood Flame

by Caris Roane

Connor, a powerful vampire serving as a Border Patrol Officer for his corrupt world, falls for a gifted witch who has the ability to kill him with a single touch…

In BLOOD FLAME, vampire Officer Connor of the Crescent Border Patrol tries to suppress his desire for the powerful witch, Iris Meldeere. Because the woman possesses the ability to kill him with the tips of her fingers, how can he possibly fall in love with her?

When a double homicide throws them together, he soon finds his deepest fantasies fulfilled as Iris succumbs to his seductions.

But as they battle together to stay alive, and love begins to consume them both, will the witch be able to forgive the dark secrets of his past?




by Felicity Heaton

They’ve burned for each other for two years, the forbidden attraction between them growing each night. Now resisting the sinful desires of their hearts is becoming impossible.

Javier knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Lilah. The mortal female belongs to a powerful aristocrat patron of Vampirerotique, the theatre he runs with three other vampires. A single touch is all it would take to break the sacred law of his kind, sentencing himself to death, but his passion for her has become too fierce to ignore and he will risk everything to make Lilah his. When they find themselves alone in a private box during one of the erotic performances, will they surrender to their passion and live out their wildest fantasies in a night of wicked pleasure or will the threat of Lilah’s master keep them apart forever?



Embrace the Dark

by Caris Roane

Will she fall to temptation and give herself to a vampire…

Abigail doesn’t mind doing business with the realm-world, until she discovers she’s a rare commodity called a blood rose, something designed to satisfy the deepest needs of a mastyr vampire. She wants nothing to do with that kind of power and servicing a vampire is just wrong. But Mastyr Gerrod’s resistance to her gift, as well as his hot hunkiness in his Guardsman uniform, soon turns her head and she bends her neck to receive a sharp pair of fangs.

Mind-blowing sex, ecstasy, all good things follow. But how can she give up her human world to serve as a blood rose the rest of her life?

After parking directly in front of the house and exiting the vehicle, Julien opened my door and held out his hand for me. Hesitantly, I took it. The tantalizing fragrances of roses and lilies was soothing, helping to somewhat calm my nerves. Holding my hand, he led me inside. It was just as stunning as the outside, the two storey grand entrance graced with Italian marble and coffered ceilings leads to a Solid Oak charcoal stained Scarlett O’Hara staircase sweeping to the second level. High ten foot ceilings promote an airy feeling throughout. Italian Marble flooring with black marble inlay was gorgeous. A stunning crystal chandelier acted as the centerpiece of a grand enterance. Soft lighting that made the space seem warm despite how grand it was in stature.

I expected him to show me around a little, but after he closed the massive double doors behind us, in an instant I was spun around to face him, his lips seeking mine, his tongue demanding entry into my mouth. Upon contact, he groaned, devouring me. I could feel his hunger, the desperation in his kiss while he pinned me against the wall. The hot, wet, demand of his mouth pressed firmly against my own. My legs felt as if they would surely buckle beneath me if not for his hips against mine, holding me in place. While I matched his passion, his heat, kissing with equal intensity, he was overpowering me, taking control of all of me.

Oh, my God. He really wants me and God help me…I want him too.

“Do you know what you do to me, chérie?” he asked, breaking our kiss while running his hands all over my body, further inflaming me. He cupped my breast, stroking his thumbs deliciously over my erect nipples, and started kissing down my neck and along my shoulder, nipping me with his teeth. My skin came alive at his touch. My core was wet, dripping with excitement.

Without warning, he gave a sharp yank to my dress. The thin straps snapped in an instant. I was so lost in him that I barely noticed as the dress slipped from my body to pool around my feet, quickly followed by my black lace bra. He lowered his head and kissed, licked and sucked on my heavy breasts, making sure to circle my nipples with his magical tongue. Biting my lip, I threw my head back and moaned with each delicious flicker, savoring the heady pressure pounding through my body.

“Tell me that you want me, mon amour.”

He pushed away, causing me to whimper in disappointment. I stared up into his intense eyes, which seemed to bare his soul to me. They were filled with intense passion, lust, and desperation.

Where was the hint of overconfidence I saw at the club? I wondered. Maybe I had been too quick to judge, too quick to assume the worst of him, because standing before me was a man whose eyes told me all that I needed to know. He needed me just as badly as I needed him.

“Yes, I want you…” I murmured. My body trembled, giving away just how excited and nervous I was as I stood before him in only my high heels and a skimpy, black lace thong. My mind began to race as I stared into his eyes. He sparked such intense desire within me, like nothing I had ever experienced before. My mind conjured up all manner of dirty and sexy things that I wanted him to do to me…no, things I needed him to do to me.

‘I’ve seen death and I’ve faced my worst fears – I survived.’
A Mafia Romance
Contemporary romance for readers over the age of 18 years.
Amazon Universal Link –

It was in a small room in a hotel in Washington, DC that my life changed forever—again.
My son, Gerry, had hit his nose causing a river of blood to run down his chin and onto his dress shirt. Sam and I had taken him from the party to clean him up when all hell broke loose.
As we crossed the reception of the hotel, I noticed a man—one of the many security detail Robert had installed to ensure his fortieth birthday party was not disturbed. He watched me leave the ballroom and just as I entered the restroom, I heard him speak.
“Can I help you?”
I hadn’t turned to look and see if he was addressing me—I was too focused on Gerry. I had enough time to grab a fistful of hand towels before it happened.
Before an invisible force hit me like a tank and I was thrown forwards, landing heavily on my side. My ears rang, my vision was blurred and my heart raced in fear.
What had just happened?
A cloud of something grey swirled into the room. Was it dust or smoke? I wasn’t sure. My brain couldn’t compute what I saw, couldn’t comprehend what was going on. I heard screams, I heard shouts, but the ringing in my ears distorted the sound. The solid oak door to the bathroom hung from one bracket, a gap had formed but not wide enough for me to see through clearly.
The sound in my head lessened, replaced by the shrill of a fire alarm. Splatters of water hit my face. The smoke, or dust, must have triggered the sprinkler system.
I heard a moan and it was as if fingers had snapped in front of my face—my son was lying somewhere on that cold tiled floor.
“Gerry?” I called out. My voice sounded strained even to my ears.

Review – The Homespun Holiday by Sarah O’Rourke.

Homespun Blog Tour Banner
 Homespun cover 4
Dr. Mackenzie Daniels was a loner. He had the divorce, a
far-away family, and well-known cranky persona to prove it. And if he had his
way, he would continue on his loner way, in spite of the attempts of the townspeople
to infiltrate his life with their irritating, so-called charming ways. That
was…until he met the beautiful Nurse Millicent Robbins.
Millie Robbins had done the love and marriage thing, and all she could say was
that she got a beautiful daughter out of the entire debacle. Love was not in
her long-term plans when she graduated from nursing school, thank you very
much….until she found herself falling head over heels for the grouchiest but
most gorgeous doctor she’d ever met.Can Mack and Millie find their way to love in spite of their histories? Can
happiness actually exist for two star-crossed lovers?

Join the entire town of Paradise for a Christmas celebration of lasting love!

television.  It was already half past
five.  She was expecting him by six.  Since she only lived ten minutes away, he had
plenty of time.  Dropping into the
leather recliner in the corner – the one where he sat and read at night – he
dropped his head back against the chair.
“Fuck,” he groaned out loud.  He
didn’t know whether he dreaded tonight or was excited by it.  It had been years… literal years… since he’d taken a woman out on a date.  Sure, he’d fucked women more recently than
that, but those were chicks he’d picked up in a bar or at a medical conference
… women that he’d had a few hours of shameless fun with before sending them
on their merry way.  Each one of them had
been carefully selected and knew the score before their clothes had ever come
off.  If any of those ladies had been interested
in more than the number of orgasms he could give them, he’d sent them off on
their way with a wave and a smile.

And not just because she had a kid, either.
Millie was the type of woman with whom a man put down roots.  That kind of guy bought a house.  That type of man would get a dog.  That man would help her raise a family.  Holy shit, he’d already done two out three of
those things, he realized with a horrified gasp.

long-haired dog.  “Millie couldn’t be
more different from Tiff if she tried.”
First off, Millie wasn’t injected with as much plastic as a Barbie doll.  Her tits still bounced when she walked,
unlike his ex’s that sat like stone against her chest.  Millie loved babies and kids.  Hell, she even had one of her own that she
loved with a passion that rivaled any parent’s love he’d ever seen.  Tiff, on the other hand, couldn’t stand
babies.   Sad, since he’d loved children
and had wanted them to have at least a couple of their own. She despised the
idea of having to be responsible for another person.  Although, in hindsight, he supposed it wasn’t
really shocking since she could barely accept responsibility for the things she
did.  Most important of all, though, was
the fact that he could never see Millie being unfaithful to him because she had
something his ex-wife had always lacked.
Something called integrity.  If
Millie wasn’t happy with him, she wouldn’t troll the local bars looking for an
easy hook-up to dull the pain.  Hell,
no.  Millicent would march right up to
him, rip off his scrotum, and shake it over her head much like the Native
Americans did when they’d taken a scalp from an enemy.   Oh, Millie would probably give him the
opportunity to make things right with her before she resorted to violence, but
if that was unsuccessful, he had no doubt she’d go the other route. 
Millie could be a firecracker when crossed.
now he was thinking of her with highly possessive pronoun usage?  He was well and truly screwed.


review by nicola

This is the first book in have read by this author, or should that be authors?!
Although it’s stated it’s a stand alone I felt as if I have missed a few parts that I can only guess have been in other books BUT that doesn’t take away from the fab festive read!
Mack, the grouchy, arsey, baby deliverer who has escapes the clutches of his ex wife is living in Paradise, although at times he doesn’t seem happy about it! He has the hots for his younger nurse who has the cutest 5 year old, Paisley,  who knows more about the birds and the bees then I probably did at 12! What should be a forbidden relationship between boss and employee, not to mention the rather large age gap, these two seem to bring out the best in each other. Their story, even though I felt like parts were rushed, is a beautiful one. With the added character of Paisley and her wish to Santa (may have cried at that) this is a great festive read.
This book had me laughing,  crying and a couple of LOL’s. It’s a quick 13 chapters read. I’d like to read more about the characters in and around Paradise, especially about Macks sister and mother (did they move?) They definitely sounds like they keep Mack on his toes when Paisley isn’t!
Favourite parts of the book, Mack flipping at the principle, even if he did step over the boss/employee boundary in my eyes….. also the whole tea pot and Santa part, sweet lord I almost choked on the lump in my throat 😥
I will be having a Goodreads snoop at the other books from the series.

Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other. Between them, they have four children and eighteen years of marriage…one to a super soldier and the other to egomaniac engineer. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers…and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!
