Fading Memories
by A.M. Willard
Release Blitz
Contemporary Inspirational Romance


Isabel Nichols’s life
changed in more ways than one through the years. As a young child, she
experienced a loss that devastated her. It wasn’t until she was an adult that
the universe around her shattered. In a twenty-four-hour time frame, she lost
what she’d thought was her world. What followed was a year of mourning, a year
of grieving, a year of darkness. Now, there’s one man who can show her the
Dakota Jackson left his
life behind on a whim, moving to a beach cottage away from the big city where
he grew up. He sees through Izzie’s clouds as he gets to know her, with the
drive to be everything that she’s ever needed. The only problem is, Dakota
holds the key to a secret that could ruin both of their hopes and dreams.
Passion isn’t always
enough to heal a broken heart; love isn’t always enough to guide you through
the darkness.
This is about two souls
that were meant to be together from the day they were born. Two people who have
to figure out a way to look past the memories. It’s the now; it’s living your
life as you’re meant to, loving the one your heart craves. It’s about letting
go of the grieving, learning to be who you are, and accepting life for what it
love cure all things despite its hardships?
Willard has the combination to unlock your heart. This is a elegantly written
book and an emotional journey that I highly recommend reading.” Author Addison
has positioned me over his leg as he moves us as one to the words. The gentle
sway back and forth and steady dips have ignited my core. It’s not just the
words being sung, it’s his touch, and the way he’s staring into my eyes. The
song I’ve loved for years is becoming something that is my life. He’s the one
who not only turns me on, but can turn me off in a split second. No one has
ever been able to cause the surge of emotions within me like he has in this
short time. The song ends just as he brings me up to his chest allowing out
foreheads to touch. My heart is beating so hard against my chest that it feels
like it’s going to jump out and into his. I know he hears the fast pace of my
breathing, just as I can hear his.

afters. She enjoys reading, sailing, and of course writing contemporary romance

I stopped
by Scorch to check on things as they started to heat up. 
on my usual couch, I took in the pretty scenery. Lots of beauties were getting
down on the dance floor as the crowd started to thicken.  Scanning the
masses, I noticed a woman shaking her hips back and forth as she got lost in
the sensuality of the music.

TSiD cover


Catherine O’Chancey is a reserved, demure, and graceful submissive. All traits she trained hard to enhance when she discovered the world of Dominance and submission in college. In an attempt to start fresh after the unexpected death of her last Dom, Catherine moves to Dallas, TX to escape the shroud of darkness he left behind in her life. She has tried to fight the need that resides deep within her to submit, but finally has to admit she can’t for it is not a choice, but part of who she truly is. After months of mental preparation, she ventures back into the lifestyle by attending a coveted open-night event at Dungeons and Dreams, an exclusive BDSM club.

Is it fate or coincidence that Catherine garners the attention of one of the club’s board members who happens to be on the hunt for the perfect sub – a partner who enjoys receiving pain and pleasure as much as he enjoys doling it out?
Jayden Masterson is many things: a firm Dom, a shrewd businessman, and a gentleman. What he isn’t, is someone who partakes in relationships outside of contractual ones with his multiple, uncollared, regular submissives. While he likes rough sex, he is not an animal, and can find pleasure only if it is consensual. What his harem is missing is a pain slut; could there be one in his future?
Upon meeting Catherine, Jayden feels an instantaneous spark inside him that has him wanting to know not just her body, but her mind. He wants to unravel her mysteries and discover her secrets. Through pain can they find the pleasure they seek? Can part-time pain lovers find full-time fulfillment when it’s not in their contract?

Over the past year of being Jayden Masterson’s collared submissive, Catherine O’Chancey has worked through the mental terrors left behind by her old Dom—she thinks. To celebrate their collaring anniversary, Jayden organizes a special day, during which her final limits and fantasies will be realized. Will it prove to be more than she can handle? Can she endure the erotic onslaught her mind and body will experience and survive unscathed?

While Catherine faces dark shadows and pleasurable highs, Jayden finds his own inner strength being tested. He has come to realize that, somewhere along the way, Catherine has taken possession of his heart, mind, and body. Now he faces his biggest challenge ever; he must let go of all his submissives but one: his jewel, Catherine. Can he leave his philandering ways behind? Has he made the ultimate mistake by putting his jewel into the hands of others?

He’s comfortable as a Dominant, but still finding his way as a lover and equal partner. Jayden is also learning that he can’t protect his jewel from everything—nor should he. Some battles she must fight on her own.
The travesties of Erin’s past still haunt her, and as the couple move forward in their merging relationship, they must now cope with the physical damage left behind by her abuser.
Catherine and her Master have a lot to learn—about each other, and about themselves. If Jayden and his jewel can overcome the challenges they’ll face on the next leg of their journey, their ending just might be . . . Surreal.

Savage by Jade C. Jamison


Savage By Jade C. Jamison Release Date 3/31/15




Kill or die…

From erotic romance author Jade C. Jamison comes a story about second chances and learning let go and find oneself again.

Nina Hardwick has had a rough life since leaving high school, but inside she is still the girl looking for a silver lining. The past several years have left their toll on her psyche, and just as she feels like she’s climbing out of a deep abyss, her life and the lives of millions of others fall into shambles as a virus overtakes the country and leaves a plague of undead armies scouring the land.

In a desperate attempt to get away from the infected, Nina and some neighbors speed out of town, nearly killing a man on a motorcycle. When they stop to rescue him, Nina realizes that he is the one man from her past she never got over, the guy who should have been her high school sweetheart until she messed it up. But this unrequited love, Kevin Savage, says he doesn’t even remember her. Or does he?

Nina, Kevin, and her neighbors head to the wilderness and fight to survive not only the plague but also hunger, cold, their inner demons…and even each other. Will they survive and, more importantly, will her heart?


All those thoughts were in my head, whether buried or at the forefront, as the tears began to stream down my cheeks. I hardly registered when Kevin pulled me into his chest and held me tightly as I sobbed, letting it all go.

Once my crying jag was over, I marveled at the man holding me. It wasn’t too long ago that he had said he never knew what to do when someone was crying. So I swiped at my face and nose with my hand, realizing his coat had absorbed a lot of the teary evidence, and looked up at him. “You did just fine,” I said.

He started laughing. “So did you.”

Then I laughed hard. Between that and the tears, I was beginning to feel like a whole new woman. “No, I didn’t mean this,” I said, waving my hand toward my back, indicating the fully dead bodies in the snow behind me. My voice was softer when I said, “With me crying. You said you never knew what to do when someone started crying.”

“Oh.” Kevin was a quiet man, speaking less now than he had when he was younger, but I believed I had rendered him mute.

“What you did right there was perfect.”

It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness



It Will Always Be You by Tina Ness (You #1)  Publication date: October 26th 2014 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


It Will Always Be You can be read as a stand-alone

After surviving four years with a commitment-phobic boyfriend, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to settle down. Too bad the man she desires, Marshall Roderick, leaves her flustered, trembling, and unable to utter a single word when he’s near.

Assuming he’s the very definition of a womanizing bachelor, Elizabeth relegates him to fantasy-land and makes no move to get to know him. That is, until a chance encounter along the shores of Lake Superior leads to drinks and a steamy romance.

Confident, successful, and freakishly handsome, Marshall is everything Elizabeth has been looking for. But when an unthinkable act of violence shakes them both to the core, she discovers that Marshall isn’t as carefree and put-together as he led her to believe.

Now it’s up to Marshall and Elizabeth to figure out if their love can heal the scars of the past and turn them into the people they’ve always wanted to be.

My Review


Marshall lost his wife in an accident and he thinks he will never be able to love again. Deep down he has this fear; his sense of having to be the protector and having failed. He doesn’t like to talk about the past; he feels anything that happened in the past should stay there. Marshall is hot, a true gentleman, sensitive, loving, thoughtful and caring. Everything we want in a man: “How did you know it was my favorite flower?” “I overheard you telling Krystal how gorgeous you thought they were about a year ago.”

Elizabeth’s low self-esteem keeps her from going after the things she wants; one of them being Marshall. She has moments of assertiveness; but her failed relationships have her doubting herself. Elizabeth is beautiful in the eyes of others: “You don’t see it, do you?” “See what?” “How goddamn beautiful you are and that you, Beth,” he runs his thumb over my lips, “are in no way inferior to your twin.”

This is a beautiful love story and it had my heart fluttering. The moments between Marshall and Elizabeth are beautiful. Their lovemaking was hot, sensual and loving: “Slow, steady, rhythmic perfection melts us into the bed, where we lie breathless. I never knew vanilla sex could be that good.”

The twists in this story have Elizabeth grow into a confident woman. There are fun moments and very sad moments, along with a twist of suspense. Loved it!! This story is going into my “all-time” favorite list.
