A Masterpiece of our Love

Title: A Masterpiece of our Love
Author: Nikki Lynn Barrett
Rating: 4.8 STARS
OVERVIEW: The first in a brand new contemporary/suspense trilogy! 
Two Lives Torn by tragedy. 
Eight-year-old Becca and twelve-year-old Hunter cling to each other and life after surviving a plane crash which stole their families. 
Two Souls Seeking Love. 
Each year, from the time she was old enough to travel on her own, Becca met up with Hunter on the island that altered their lives forever. 
Until he stopped showing. 
Her constant. Her link to the past. Gone in the blink of an eye. 
Two Lives Bound by Secret. 
Suffering more heartbreak, Hunter returns to the one place he’s always sought comfort, the island where he and Becca met. It was the place that stole from him, and in the same instance gave to him. He hasn't been back or spoken to Becca in four years. 
Though he’s sure she must hate him for disappearing, Hunter discovers the girl gone, now a woman in her place. Hunter is determined to prove to Becca he isn’t the same twelve-year-old boy of yesteryear. 
But someone isn't happy about their reunion... 
Strange things begin happening. Letters start showing up in their hotel rooms and at home with cryptic messages. 
Two Broken Hearts Heal as One. 
With the mystery unsolved, Hunter convinces Becca to spend the remainder of the summer back home with him, both for safety and to give them a chance to discover the adults they’ve now become. 
Will love get a chance to blossom, or will the past come back and tear the masterpiece of their love apart once and for all?
REVIEW: what can I say about A Masterpiece of our Love? This story truly is a masterpiece. I can't imagine how Barrett has managed to conceive such a plot. I am awestruck at her use of imagery and words, every scene unfolded right In front of me. While the novel started out slow, the writing still captured my attention. But as the story progressed, the pace increased, and I was unable to move my eyes from the screen (I have puffy eyes to prove it). The storyline is very interesting with many twists and cliff hangers. Also, the way in which the story is written, I felt I was living Hunter and Becca's life with them. The characters were WOW.  Each one with a fitting personality. My favourite character would have to be Hunter. I loved the way in which Barrett has portrayed him as a strong yet soft hearted guy. I loved the way she wrote of his actions towards his demons, and how he responded to Becca as compared to the other characters. The love between the two main characters is written beautifully. However, now I'm stuck waiting for the next book in the trilogy, and i feel like I'm stuck with Hunter and Becca, until I read the next one. The storyline is very different to your usual stories. It's filled with secrets and suspense at every point. I suggest you grab this and read it soon. You might just discover a few steamy scenes as well ;)

The Seduction EPILOGUE & giveaway!!!



 

The Seduction Epilogue.

 

 

 

“Wake up, sleepy-head.”

 

I drift, drowsy from the soothing sound of the ocean. I’m having the the most amazing dream. I’m on a tropical beach, where clear crystal water laps the power white sand, and palm trees shade my lounger. And there’s a man. Mmmm. A gorgeous, sexy man stroking every inch of my body...

 

His fingers brush over my bikini top, playing with my breasts. I let out a moan.

 

“That’s right, baby.” He chuckles. He squeezes with my nipples through the thin fabric until they’re hard and aching. “Are you awake yet?”

 

“No,” I whisper, wanting to stay in the bliss of this dream. It feels so good.

 

“Hmmm... how about now?” His hand moves lower, over my bare stomach. I shiver. He traces lightly down between my thighs, stroking over my clit. Even through my bikini, the sensation spirals through me. I gasp, rocking up against his hand.

 

“Still sleeping?” he murmurs.

 

I smile, but keep my eyes shut. I want to see where this goes.

 

“You really are tired, poor baby. I wonder what’s been wearing you out?” He sounds amused.

 

“My boyfriend,” I murmur, still laying with my eyes closed. “He’s insatiable.”

 

“I don’t blame him.” He pushes my bikini bottoms aside and rubs my clit, a maddening rhythm that makes me writhe. “Just looking at you like this, I want to sink deep into that sweet pussy and fuck you slowly until you lose your mind.”

 

“So why don’t you?” I challenge, breathing faster as he strokes. God, right there. Yes.

 

He laughs. “Soon, baby. But it’s time to wake up. I’ve got something planned for us.”

 

“Does it involve your cock inside me?” I moan. He answers by sliding two fingers into my wet core. Fuck.

 

“You can bet on it.” His palm presses my clit as his fingers pulse deep inside me and I break in a delicious ripple of orgasm.

 

I open my eyes to find Vaughn kneeling beside me with a wicked grin.

“I was just dreaming about you,” I smile. The beach glitters, totally empty except for us. Vaughn leans down to claim my mouth in a hot kiss.

 

“Good dream?” He murmurs, stroking my hair. His eyes rove over me, dark and possessive.

 

“The best.” I let out a contented sigh, looking at the ocean, and the setting sun -- and him. “This is heaven.”

 

Vaughn lifts me to my feet. We stroll back to our beachfront cabana: the doors wide open to let the tropical breeze in. “You hop in the shower,” Vaughn tells me, “I’m going to get your surprise ready.”

 

I feel a jolt of anticipation. Vaughn loves surprising me, and his plans usually end with multiple orgasms. “Give me a hint?” I ask.

 

He shakes his head. “Not this time. Go on.”

 

He’s using that voice I love, the one that’s all man, so I follow his order and go shower off in the huge bathroom. It’s big enough for two, and we’ve definitely tested it out many times this vacation, soaping up for hours together under the jets.

 

When I step out of the shower, there’s a box on the cabinet, tied with red ribbon.

 

Wear this.

(And only this)

 

I open the box. It’s a gorgeous red silk dress, with a short skirt and tiny spaghetti straps. There’s nothing else in the box. No lingerie. I grin, slipping it over my head. The silk slides over my body in a shiver of sensation. The skirt flares mid-thigh, dangerously high, and my nipples are visible through the fabric.

 

Something tells me we aren’t going out for dinner tonight.

 

My cellphone rings just as I’m applying makeup. It’s Cam, holding down the fort back at the company.

 

“Hey boss,” he says, when I answer. “Still enjoying paradise?”

 

“I love it here, we might never come back.”

 

He laughs. “Don’t. We need you.”

 

“Everything running OK?” I ask, fixing my hair in the mirror to fall in loose, natural waves.

 

“Nothing that won’t wait. The police say Carter will do jail time for attempted murder, and there’s still no word from Brent.”

 

That reminds me. “Will you do me a favor?” I ask. “Check on Isabelle. I don’t know what’s going on with her, but I know she’s mixed up in something with Brent. I just have a feeling, she might need help.”

 

“Sure,” Cam sounds surprised. “I’ll keep an eye on her.”

 

“Thanks. I’ve got to run.”

 

“A busy schedule of beach and cocktails?”

 

I laugh. “Something like that.”

 

I hang up push open the bathroom door, stepping out into our suite.

 

“Vaughn?” I call, but there’s no reply.

 

Another box sits on the coffee table. I open it, my anticipation rising. Inside is a red satin blindfold and another note.

 

Later.

 

My pulse kicks. I’m going to like this surprise, I’m certain.

 

I hear movement outside. I step out onto our private patio to see a table laid for two with beautiful white linens and silverware. There’s delicious-looking food, and candles flickering as the sun sets lower over the ocean in a blaze of pink and gold.

 

“You look beautiful,” Vaughn’s voice comes from behind me. I turn. He’s wearing dress pants and a white shirt open at the neck, devastatingly handsome like something from a movie. He carries a bottle of champagne and two glasses to the table, pausing to murmur in my ear as he passes.

 

“You’re going to look more beautiful naked in that blindfold with your wet mouth wrapped around my cock.”

 

Still my Vaughn. I feel a rush of heat between my naked thighs. Vaughn chuckles and pulls out a chair for me.

 

I sit, taking in the gorgeous scene. “I can’t believe you did all this for me.”

 

“It’s our last night on the island,” Vaughn smiles across the table at me. “I want it to be a night you remember.”

 

“I remember everything,” I admit, feeling a rush of love and desire. “Every minute we spend together.” Ever since meeting Vaughn, my life has turned upside down. We’ve been through so much together, and even though I feel closer to him than anyone else in my life before, it still amazes me how new and exciting this feels.

 

He surprises me. He challenges me. And God, he turns me on.

 

“No regrets?” Vaughn asks quietly. His eyes burn into mine from across the table. He looks weirdly serious.

 

“None.” I swear, reaching to hold his hand. “I love you. I’m just glad all the mess with Ashcroft and Ridley is over now. We can just be together.”

 

 

Vaughn pulls his hand away. “One last surprise,” he says, pulling a final box from his pocket. He places it on the table in front of me, tied with another red ribbon.

 

A ring-sized box.

 

My heart stops. It can’t be...

 

I look up at him, but he just smiles. “Open it.”

 

I unwrap the ribbon with shaking hands. Inside is the most beautiful diamond ring I’ve ever seen in my life.

 

“Vaughn...”

 

He goes down on one knee beside me. Vaughn takes the ring box, and cradles my hand. “You’ve changed my life, Keely. I was lost before I met you. I never thought that I could have this. Us. That I would love someone like I love you.”

 

I feel a sob rise in my throat. “I feel the same,” I whisper. “I’m so happy I have you.”

 

“Be mine forever,” Vaughn asks, and already I’m crying too much to get the words out. I just nod,

 

“Yes! Of course, I say yes.”

 

He slides the ring on my finger and then pulls me into his arms. I fit just right, made to press against his firm muscle and heat. It’s overwhelming, the thought of him forever. All Vaughn. All mine.

 

“You and me, baby,” Vaughn murmurs, claiming my lips in a scorching kiss. “I promise, I’m going to spend the rest of our lives making you smile... making you laugh...”

 

His hands slide lower, under the hem of my dress.

 

“Making you scream.”

 

THE END

Defender's Blood: Alex's Destiny



Title: Defenders Blood Alex's Destiny
Author: Ava K. Michaels
Rating: 4.7 STARS
OVERVIEW: Alex has no idea her life is about to change beyond her wildest imaginings. She is the last in a long line of very special females born for a dangerous task, and she isn't sure she is up to it. Zach, her vampire protector, is just as sure she is. 
Demon attacks, angels and even the ultimate, divine intervention, shake Alex to her very core. Can she do this? Can Zach keep her safe? The alternative is unthinkable: demons once more ruling the earth. 
Zach has to ensure that Alex puts a stop to this - and quickly! 




REVIEW: While I was reading this book, I found my excitement level increasing. There is a lot of drama in Alex's story, with vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches, angels, demons, and lots more. This made the book packed with interesting plots. The storyline is fast paced and the writing is quite good. I found that the characters were thoroughly planned with great personalities. The best thing about this book was the names of the characters. Each name fit the character like a puzzle piece, and this made the book what it is. I loved the ending, and the story was constantly surprising me. My favourite character was Irina. She was such a subtle personality, and I loved her name. There is a lot of Passion and heat in the story and a strong emphasis on soul mates. Michaels has portrayed a unique storyline with a lot of twists and action. Hot guys! Brave women! Jealous witch! This book has a lot! You don't wanna miss out. Moreover, Defenders Blood Alex's Destiny, is now FREE FREE FREE!

*RELEASE BLITZ*---> The Key To My Heart by Nikki Lynn Barrett

                                          

Blurb: 

One dream fails, a passion burnt out...

With no set plan and a desire to find a passion, Blaine Grant hightailed it out of Harmony's Echo a year out of high school to find herself. Finding a passion didn't come as easily to her as it did for others she knew. Now, Blaine has come home for good with mistakes she'd like to forget, but the past doesn't want to forget her. Everyone thought she'd been selfish to not come back when she was needed the most, but Blaine never let anyone know the emotional hell she went through. 

Another dream is just beginning to see the light...

Randy Hughes has always been the shy guy until he discovered his love of music. It wasn't until joining the band that he grew out of his shyness. The oldest sibling and the only boy, he's pressured by family expectations to set a good example. He's the one who takes everyone in when they need it, and he's the one whose own dreams are ignored. Now that big things are happening for the Baby Stetson band, Randy has to decide how to handle his family when his dreams are on the line... 

A friendship is changing.

One spur of the moment, impulsive move leads Randy and Blaine into a dire situation that may bring them together, or pull them apart, just when he's finally able to gather the courage to tell Blaine how he's felt about her all these years...

Revisit the characters you've come to know in small town Harmony's Echo, as more changes settle upon them.

EXCERPT
She snuggled closer, resting her head on his shoulder. Randy slid his arm underneath her pillow and pulled her to him. She nestled in the crook of his arm.
"You definitely grew up. You used to be so gawky. Not any more," Blaine mumbled, her voice now sleep-filled.
He laughed. "Gee thanks." He loved her blunt honesty. If it weren't the truth, he just might have been offended.
"I meant that in the nicest of ways."
He leaned over, brushing a kiss to her temple. "Go to sleep crazy woman."
"Kay. I still want more secrets from you. I keep spilling mine."
His biggest secret was the way he felt about her, which she must have guessed now after the other night. "I'll dig deep down and find a few for you, then we'll call it even."
All he got in response was a deep sigh, signaling she'd pretty much given in to sleep.
As he laid there with Blaine all cuddled up against him, he knew he should get up and go. She was vulnerable. For once, he felt needed for real. Even though Blaine didn't know how she felt, she still needed him. After all these years, he had a feeling she might just start seeing him the way he saw her.
       

The Key To My Heart is a standalone novel set in the series, but you'll learn about the other characters featured in this story as well.  Baby Stetson is book one, featuring Avery and Lucas, and book 2 is The Melody In My Head, which is Jameson and Melody's story.  

Baby Stetson is currently part of the Pasisonate Kisses boxed set with nine other authors and available for 99 cents. The Melody In My Head is currently $1.99

Breaking Free by Brandy L Rivers




BOOK SYNOPSIS

They say that dreams can come true, but as a dreamwalker, Devlin had yet to experience anything but nightmares. Then again, the druid had been held by sadistic vampires and dark mages for twenty years, forced to do their bidding. Newly escaped, he stumbles upon a dreamrealm where he can’t resist a little werewolf.

Jamie just wants someone to call her own. She feels like she’s been waiting for an awfully long time, when a man who teases her memory begins to visit her while she’s dreaming. From the moment she feels his turmoil, she’s drawn in, wanting nothing more than to heal his broken soul.

Before Devlin can decide what to do, he has to make a trip to Edenton. His first goal is to make sure someone who can’t remember him is safe and happy. The little werewolf of his dreams happens to live there, and she’s even more irresistible in real life.

When you’ve been taught all your life to run, what will make you change? Can Jamie convince her mate to stay and fight? Will he risk everything to have what he needs? Or run to save them all?

EXCERPT

The moon shone bright over a crystal clear lake. Thousands of stars were reflected, like floating diamonds sparkling. The breeze blew gently through red cedar, pine, and maple. The clean mountain air reminded him of camping with his family when he was a boy.

It had been so long since he had the liberty, and desire, to enjoy nature. The water called to Devlin. Carefully, without a sound, he pulled the clothes from his body and placed them on the stump beside him.

With a slow breath, he walked into the gentle ripples, creating larger crests of his own. Warm water greeted him. He dove under, swimming deeper.

A splash caught Devlin’s attention. He broke the surface to find nothing, and no one. Closing his eyes, he reached out with his senses. A lone werewolf was close.

Panic flared through him, and he started for the shore, but a woman surfaced before him. A slow smile spread on her face when he flailed back, splashing her in his surprise.

“Your heart’s pounding.” Amusement sparkled in her pale blue topaz eyes as she placed one small hand over his chest. Warmth washed through him offering a calm he couldn’t remember ever feeling.

Yet, he was terrified the Dales were tracking him. A dream, nothing more than a dream. They can’t find me, he reminded himself.

“You startled me,” Devlin replied.

“Hmm.” Her foot brushed against his calf, sending a shiver through his entire body. She tapped her finger to her chin. “You remind me of someone, but I can’t figure out who.”

Intrigued, and certainly heading toward aroused, he asked, “What makes you say that?”

One corner of her shiny pink mouth lifted impishly. “Don’t know, but you do.” Her voice had taken on a husky purr which effectively made his blood pump faster.

A dream, just a dream, he told himself. Then he did something bold, something he hadn’t done in so long he was sure he’d fail, even in a fantasy. “What’s a sweet little wolf like you doing out here all alone?”

Her giggle was melodic as her already dazzling eyes lit up. “Looking for love in all the wrong places.”

As if on cue, his resistance broke. Her tiny waist fit perfectly in his hands, her hips flared in a way that made him groan. Devlin propelled them closer to the shore, until his feet touched bottom.

Before he could make his move, her legs locked around his hips and her fingers caressed up his shoulder and neck to delve into his hair. She grazed her lips over his. Afraid to take things too far, he slid his hands up her back, pressing her full breasts against his chest.

Needing more of her taste, he deepened their kiss. Devlin felt more alive than he could remember. A dream, just a blasted dream, his brain chimed in. The knowledge didn’t stop him from sweeping his tongue into her mouth when she opened to him.

Her body undulated in tune with his, and her heated core slid against his hardened length. The urge to bury himself in her was too much.

Pulling back, he panted, “Your name? Need your name, Precious.”

“Precious?” She licked her lips as she stared back at him with something like awe in her big blue eyes.

He tipped his forehead to hers and breathed in her wild but seductive scent. “You’ve set me free of my old life. You’ve given me something to look forward to.” He didn’t know where the words came from, but he didn’t dare take them back. They felt right.

“Jamie Abrams. You better come to me.” There was a command hidden in her sweet sassy voice, one he truly wanted to obey. “I’ll be waiting.”

He nodded, rolling her name through his head like a fine wine over his tongue.
