New book release The Day My Kisses Tasted Like Disorder, a collection of poems by Emmanuella Hristova


"The Day My Kisses Tasted Like Disorder" is a collection of poems that explores a tumultuous year of love, heartbreak, and all kinds of unimaginable loss. Emmanuella's debut poetry book documents the birth and death of a relationship, and the death of her sister. Each poem is an emotional time-stamp that plunges the reader into the depths of the author’s feelings as they burgeon and wane. The book reads like a diary and chronicles the boundaries of the things that we all feel: passion, heartache, and pain that gives way to hope.

New book on the market for the erotica lover with all things naughty... Sugar Plum'd by Leon Mauvis


Sugar Plumb'd is 21,500 words. 
It's a BDSM, Fantasy/Scifi, Suspense,
Action/Adventure, Multiple Partners,  Mystery, Thriller, Shape-shifters, M/M Romance. 

It's a holiday adventure about love blooming between enemies turned allies.

It's like "Rudolph" & "50 shades of gay" meets "Mad Max" at Santa's workshop!

LONG BLURB:

As a young were-deer, all Pembroke has ever dreamed of is being harnessed to Santa’s sleigh. Yet his world comes crashing down when Santa’s slain. 

A war erupts in the Arctic Circle-pitting elf against reindeer. Pembroke is sent on a perilous mission. If he fails, his herd will be lost. When the mission goes awry, the stag-shifter must put his trust in an unlikely ally. Where does one turn in a land of ice and blood?
What happens when the enemy infiltrates your heart? What begins as a wavering alliance, takes both stag and elf farther than they both could ever imagine.

SHORT BLURB:

It’s the North Pole’s final carol. Santa’s been slain. A war’s erupted, pitting elf against reindeer. When a young weredeer’s mission goes awry, he must put his trust in an unlikely ally. Who can you trust in land of ice and blood? An unlikely alliance sweeps Pembroke past the polar skies and all he’s ever known. 


EXCERPT:


              “I hear,” Kassel’s whispers filled the empty stalls of the barn, “the *Toy-Maker* can be quite demanding.” Pembroke didn’t care. He would prove himself.

             He arched his back as if he was getting ready to be harnessed to the sleigh. His shoulders back, Pembroke held his head high. His flanks rising in the air as if supporting an uplifted tail.

             As if he was still in stag form.

             “No.” Kassel said, “Like I’m *really *Him.”

             Pembroke felt the rough sole of Kassel’s foot against the broadest part of his back. Pembroke was caught off guard by the pressure. His face forced down, Pembroke felt his haunches rise till his ass, like a halved plumb, split open for the Toy-Maker’s inspection. Pembroke flinched as he felt the weight of a large buckle fall between his shoulder blades. Kassel dragged the cool metal down Pembroke’s spine, resting it on the small of his trembling back.

             Kassel paused only for a second, before dragging the metal even further, splitting his friend’s cheeks, teasing the soft pink skin of Pembroke’s puckered hole.

             Without thinking, Pembroke let his shoulders take the weight of his prostrate body as his fingers lifted to spread his cheeks further apart.

             He felt Kassel’s hot breath blowing across.

             “Now how many days till you guide my sleigh?” Kassel asked.

             Thwack.

             A sting blossomed against Pembroke’s hole. It leapt away as fast as it came. A bolt of lightning zapping through his body.  The pain surprised him so much that he hadn’t heard the question.

             Thwack!

             There it was again.




About the Author:

"Sugar Plum'd" is Leon Mauvais' debut! He's a beret-wearing sprite who fell asleep in the cornfields of Pennsylvania.

Some mistakes don’t deserve forgiveness. Destroy Me by Ella Sheridan




Some mistakes don’t deserve forgiveness. Lyse Sheppard planted the bomb that almost killed everyone close to her, including the man she loved. Now in hiding, she spends her days making amends the only way she knows how—using her genius computer skills to save women enslaved by the bastard who blackmailed her. And every night she punishes herself by watching the man she lost live his life without her. Fionn “Irish” McCullough can’t let go of the rage Lyse ignited the night she betrayed his team. Betrayed him. After months of searching, he’s no closer to finding his prey—until a mysterious message points him toward Ireland and a deadly threat against the only family he has left. Caught in the twisted web of his past, Fionn must choose between revenge and keeping his mother safe. But the one weapon he needs—and the one touch he craves—may be the woman he can never forgive.

“Fionn, I never would’ve hurt you.” She blinked up at him, a suspicious sheen in her eyes. Everything about her was suspicious. “I wouldn’t hurt anyone, but especially not you.” He snorted. “Why? Because you’re kind and sweet and naive? None of us are buying that shit anymore.” Lyse squeezed her eyes shut. He could see the fight going on inside her, the need to defend herself. She could try all she wanted; it wouldn’t be doing her any good. Opening her eyes, she focused on his jumper, not meeting his gaze. “You know why. I couldn’t hurt you, Fionn. I...” Something mean sparked in his gut. “Why? Because of your little crush?” Her pale cheeks went pink, her gaze dropping to the floor. “You didn’t think your case of puppy love meant anything, did ya? Those big eyes staring up at me, full of hearts.” He leaned in, planting his hands on the seat on either side of her thighs, bringing their faces close. He wanted her to see him, wanted her feeling it when he delivered the blows. “All that pathetic hero worship almost got my team killed. Why? Because we trusted you. Because no little girl who was naive enough to believe she’d have a chance with me could be a threat, yeah?”

Writing has been my passion since childhood, but like many writers, life got in the way. After earning a BA in English Literature, I married and started a family. But the worlds and characters that swirled through my mind just wouldn’t go away, and at a particularly difficult time in my life, I picked up pen and paper (or laptop) and tried to release some of that difficulty onto the page. I’ve been writing ever since. Now I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, run an accountability blog to help writers reach their goals, and am pursuing publication with the same passion I feel for writing. Nothing pleases me more than sharing the stories of my heart with you, the reader, and I hope, in some small way, these stories will touch your heart too.

Book review With every letter by Sarah Sundin




Book review - 5 Stars

Where to start with my review?

First off - to the author who has done a brilliant work, creating a fiction story in the midst of actual events. So many books were written about the Second World War but the author's research brought a brand new perspective to those events. I really have to congratulate her on creating such a lovely plot that mesmerized me from beginning to end.
I really could relate to Tom, Mellie and every other character in the story. It was lively, filled with enough tension to keep you going and her writing was superbly done. This is a book I will recommend to all who loves a good plot, a very romantic story and strong characters.
Throughout the storyline, the love for the Lord is tangible and real as you journeyed with the characters to North Africa during the tumultuous times of WWII. Every small detail highlighted by the characters own struggles as they trust the Lord for protection and leadership. In the process, you can literary see the Lord's hand in every situation without great difficulty. The easy flow helping along as it draws you deeper into the plot.
I loved how both Mellie and Tom found their way through rejection, fear, the making of new friendships, being a leader and breaking the preconceived views of the groups they travelled with. Through their struggles, mercy flowed gently through the story with such ease that you cannot help but feel connected to every person involved.

Beauty runs deeper than skin... that is very true in this story. When we look past the physical and connect, that is when we get to know each other... and this was clearly illustrated through the letters Tom and Mellie wrote. Through their anonymity, they could find common ground and learned to trust, cherish and love each other in a deeper way. In the end, the meeting between them was perfectly orchestrated to really bring it all home. This is a must read to all readers out there.

And, I cannot end this review without mentioning Sesame's part in this story. Without giving anything away, his role was the perfect balancing act that grounded everything for me and I fell in love with him from his introduction.

I am looking forward to book 2 in this series...

My Goodreads TBR list so far for 2018 - 2019


Here is my list for the next year - so far... 💟📚


My books to read grows rapidly by day, week and month but my books read not so much. As you can see I like a wide variety. From Historical to bad boys in paranormal romance, thrillers and war, a good mystery and yes, even time-travel. I like the challenge and the discovery of new styles and genres from each author. Many of these books are on my Kindle since 2012. I am always busy reading new authors books due to demand but this year and the year to come I want to focus on the ones that I have bought, received as gifts or won in a competition, and some I bought. 

The self-help books are on my list for selfish reasons. To grow, and prosper and help me to be a better speaker in my work and as a radio announcer. 

Each of us understands what books mean to us and why it is important to have them in our lives. Without them, we feel lost, missing something bigger than ourselves... forming a big part of our ideas, thoughts and yes, the way forward. 

My wish is that your own list grows with rapid awareness of all the literature out there and be inspired in your daily walk. May you find peace within the pages of each book and conscious of life.

I wish you a read-full festive season and a very happy new year.
