Molly Reviews, Guest Post and Giveaway: Too Good To Be True by Deanna Wadsworth (1Night Stand Story)

Blurb:
Disgraced former FBI agent Tim Burkhart desperately wants to reclaim his life and find happiness. Relocating his fledgling private security company to Miami—where his ex-wife moved their two daughters—hopefully is a start. When he’s hired to provide protection for an antiques dealer on his way to Scotland to sell a priceless ancient dirk, Tim believes the break he’s been waiting for has finally arrived. Maybe now he can make enough money to hire a lawyer and get shared parenting of his little girls.

Elliot James runs the antique shop he inherited after his grandfather’s death. Lonely and swimming in debt, he longs for a way to turn his life around but keeps making one mistake after another. Then he finds the ancient dirk tucked away among junk as he’s cleaning out his grandfather’s home. Placing it up for sale, he is thrilled when an out of country buyer purchases the priceless antique. The buyer wants the dirk immediately and sends Tim to ensure Elliot safely delivers it on time.

The moment Tim and Elliot meet, however, everything falls apart. Between break-ins, shoot-outs, stalkers, totaled cars, and the cops, it seems Tim and Elliot will never get to Scotland by the deadline. Despite all the obstacles, an unexpected attraction pulls them together, offering each man a glimmer of hope. But if they don’t deliver the dirk on time, they won’t get paid and neither of them will be able to pick up the pieces of their lives.

Will they complete this job and find a happily ever after, or is all of this really too good to be true?

Release Day Blast and Giveaway: Caught Inside by Jamie Deacon (Boys on the Brink Book 1)

Blurb:
Luke believes he has his life figured out…and then he meets Theo.

It should have been simple—a summer spent with his girlfriend Zara at her family’s holiday cottage in Cornwall. Seventeen-year-old Luke Savage jumps at the chance, envisioning endless hours of sunbathing on the private beach and riding the waves on his beloved surfboard. He isn’t interested in love. Though his rugged good looks and lazy charm mean he can have his pick of girls, he has no intention of falling for anyone.

Nothing prepares Luke for his reaction to Theo, the sensitive Oxford undergraduate who is Zara’s cousin and closest friend. All at once, he is plunged along a path of desire and discovery that has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. No one, especially Zara, must find out; what he and Theo have is too new, too fragile. But as the deceit spirals beyond their control, people are bound to get hurt, Luke most of all.

Blurb:
Vikash Soren, the perfect police officer except for his odd paranormal ability, never seems to lose his temper.

Unable to tell his police partner that he loves him, Vikash struggles silently, terrified of losing Kyle as a lover, partner and friend.

But life in the 77th Precinct doesn’t leave much room for internal reflection. A confrontation with a stick-throwing tumbleweed in Fairmount Park leads to bizarre consequences involving pill bugs, statues and…time travel? If Vikash manages to survive the week and stay in one point in time, he might be able to address normal things like relationship problems. He just needs Kyle to have a little more patience. Maybe a few centuries’ worth.

Molly Reviews and Guest Post: Four by Archer Kay Leah (The Republic Book 2)

Blurb:
On the outside, Mayr seems to have it all: a successful career as Head of the Guard for a prominent politician, family and friends who adore him, and the attention of beautiful women. But appearances are a good way to bury secrets, including the fact that while Mayr is a romantic at heart, searching for the one person to share his life with, his lovers keep leaving him.

When his last girlfriend takes him back and suggests an intimate night with Tash, one of her lovers, Mayr reluctantly agrees. The last thing he expects is to fall hard for Tash, who is nothing like Mayr’s previous lovers—and about to undertake the Uldana Trials. If Tash fails, he’ll likely die. If he succeeds, he must give up Mayr, and become the latest to leave Mayr standing alone with a broken heart.

Release Day Blast: Krane by Nicole Colville (A Knights to Remember Novel)

Blurb:
Prepare to be ruined for every other man who comes after Krane

At the age of thirty-seven, local giant and semi-professional rugby player Krane Buchannan had spent his life hiding behind a tightly locked closet door with a wife as a shield and a gut full of regrets. Coming out may not have been his choice, but ending his marriage was. With an ugly divorce looming and a vindictive soon-to-be ex-wife making his life a living hell, Krane finds his once comfortable life in the small Scottish village changed forever. Unprepared and unwilling to admit the truth, Krane has some tough decisions to make

For years he’d felt dead inside, going through life but never actually living. He’d given up all hope of ever finding that one special person who would make him feel complete, but when he meets an attractive brunette with legs to die for at his brother’s BDSM club, Krane’s world is tipped upside down.

I’m going to ruin you for every other man. You’re mine. I own you.”

The heat and passion ignite instantly, scorching them both, and in the space of a few hours, Bailey became much more than a one-night stand. Every touch from Bailey was branded onto his skin, forever imprinted like the intricate ink-work covering his body, something which couldn’t be washed off or forgotten, but worn forever.

“Bailey was showing Krane how life should be.”

Coming from entirely different worlds, both struggle to overcome their worries and fear of becoming part of each other’s life, but the searing white-hot heat which builds between them with every look can’t be ignored. With hesitant steps, Krane enters the secretive world of BDSM and Bailey cautiously re-enters the world he’s tried so hard to forget since the death of his lover and Dom. The world outside the club.

“Krane screamed power. Bailey could sense it simmering across the room and filling his lungs with his alpha aroma.”

There’s a sadness which clings to Bailey, and his unwillingness to open up about the dark secrets in his past makes Krane doubt everything, but he’s had enough of giving up and is prepared to fight for what he wants, and what he wants is Bailey. He just has to convince Bailey he wants Krane in return.

Guest Post, Interview and Exclusive Excerpt: Traces by Alexander Jalo

Blurb:
One seemingly insignificant moment sets into motion a whirlwind that would eventually suck the main character, Finnish Daniel Bremer, into its core. Daniel was planning to write a book about truth, but he didn’t expect to experience it himself in the most painful way. There is something behind the truth that eludes him. Sometimes, certain truths turn out to be too dangerous and it’s better to continue concealing that which is concealed. In the end, Daniel finds himself faced with conflicting feelings of love and guilt as a result of his own actions. And just when he decides that the truth will set him free, his life is met with tragedy.

Traces begins with Daniel having a romantic encounter with Marie Allègre in Paris and, as a result, being stalked by her jealous ex-boyfriend, Raymond Durand. As the story progresses, both Daniel and the reader are drawn deeper into Raymond’s dark world, a world that gradually becomes more complex. Daniel’s life raft comes from a surprising source in the form of CIA Agent Bruce Brock.

Traces, is an erotic thriller that delves into the world of intelligence. The story is driven by intense and intellectual solutions rather than relying on action and brutality. The objective of the book is to draw readers into a realm where they are confronted with deep and subtly developing mystical elements. Although Traces is full of hints regarding mysteries, it still manages to conceal that which is concealed. Traces might lead you to find your own special path, or you might lose track of the traces revealed if you, as a reader and tracer, are not sufficiently aware. Can you manage to resist the urge to find out?

Traces is the first book of the TML-trilogy, based on U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s warning about three great threats to freedom and democracy: the military-industrial complex, global banking and the scientific-technological elite. Although Daniel and Marie’s brief but passionate relationship takes place in the first book of the trilogy, its significance is not revealed until the final book. Some of the mysteries in Traces might seem unbelievable and, in truth, even the author was unaware of some of the strange synchronicities that eventually, in the third book, would provide a scientific explanation for these mysterious elements.
