Erin's Review
 You think you have read them all before, wealthy sexy as hell guy meets ordinary girl. Then there's Stripped.  The one thing that stood out for me about Kylie and Evan is that they are real. Kylie is young with a baby. Couple that with a jerk husband that walks out on them and you have a scared young mother that will do anything for her child. I don't want to say she is naive, because she isn't but she's......innocent in her own way. Her hesitation about Evan are justifiable, her indecision about their relationship is believable and the love for her daughter is apparent. 
 Evan is, well, Evan. I will be brutally honest, there were times I didn't like him very much. Oh he was still sexy as hell, but damn can he be a real ass when he isn't thinking! It was nice to see a gu act like a guy. Jealous, not always sure of every decision he made, insecure about the relationship and sometimes, just being a downright ass. But a lovable ass none the less. 
 This is one of those books that just when you think everything works out, BAM! Reality slaps the characters in the face with yet another obstacle. That's life, and these two handled it as real as you can imagine. Their arguments had me nodding in agreement with both of them. I mean, who hasn't said something out of anger? Who hasn't stormed off before hearing the whole story? That's what I liked about this story, it was life, just a bit sexier. 
 Kylie and Evan together are hot. You can cut the sexual tension with a knife. You want nothing but happiness for them. Especially Kylie, she's been through enough. Evan isn't without his own struggles though. Overbearing parents, trying to be molded in to something you're not, and a conniving woman hell bent on doing what she has to to be the billionaire's wife.
 This story shows the reader that sometimes you need to take a stand. Fight for what you want, and don't give up. It shows that even in times of desperation, there is hope that things will get better, if you persevere. 
I loved Kylie and Evan, and I'm sure you will too.

COVER REVEAL: Shhh... Mack's Side by Jettie Woodruff




My name is McKenzie Perry. I’ve lived a life filled with secrets. Secrets that took me years to understand. 
Secrets that my bestie, Gia, and I kept from the world. Secrets that only I knew. I wasn’t afraid of the lies,
the secrets, or the hidden skeletons. That’s not what frightened me. I was afraid that one day they would come out, somebody would find out the truth. If I am the only one that knew the secrets, the lies, then they were safe, right? 

It took several years for me to understand the impact of lies. Lies I told, secrets I kept, and the lives they controlled. One of the things I know to be true is I did the things I did for a reason, even if I didn’t know it at the time. 

They all had a reason. 

My name is Mack and this is my side of the story. 







As most of you know I am Jettie Woodruff, author of the Amazon bestselling Underestimated series. I also hate bios...
I am a lifelong writer, published for a couple years now. I write romance, erotica, and some dark erotica. The main thing people need to know about my writing is, I don't really write your normal, cliché, romance. I like to write on the edge where I like to keep my readers.
My main goal when I write is to pull every emotion possible from my readers. I want you to, laugh, feel sad, get pissed off, and be happy. I also like to make you question your morals. That is probably my aim more so than anything, make you fall in love with the bad guy. Sometimes I can pull it off and sometimes not so much. I guess it depends on your forte. I like to write about the bad boy, and have you fall in love with him.
I have always read, for as long as I can remember. My first taste of a dark read was VC Andrew's, Casteel series. I need to read that one again.

Victoria Pinder - Chaperoning Paris - Virtual Book Tour




Contemporary Romance
Date Published: June 11, 2014

   
Gigi Dumont never forgot how she walked away from the only man she ever loved.
She’s a teacher who has led her students to the finals of an international French competition to be help in Paris. The night before the trip, the Principal tries to cancel the trip before he, in turn, loses his job to her high school boyfriend, Sean Collins.
Sean Collins has survived cancer, a divorce , and Gigi having aborted their child back in high school. He assumed he’d hate her, if they ever crossed paths again. But he discovers she’s exactly what he wants.
When Gigi and Sean are stuck together for a week in Paris, Gigi feels she has lost all her control. How can she survive her attraction to Sean? The man’s sexier now than he was back in the day, and once upon a time, he’d had her heart. She finds herself falling for him, even knowing forever is impossible.



Victoria Pinder

Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.
During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.
Besides her full time job of teaching, in 2013 and 2014, she sold on her own sold books to three different publishers. The Zoastra Affair, Chaperoning Paris, Borrowing the Doctor, and Electing Love will be published from Soul mate Publishing. Mything the Throne will be published with Double Dragon Ebooks. Favorite Coffee, Favorite Crush will be published with Jupiter Press.
Now she is represented by Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency and she hopes to continue selling her novels that she writes. Moving up to the next level from hard work and determination is rewarding, and partnerships bring new opportunities.
Also she’s the Vice President of Programs for the Florida Romance Writers. She’s gone to multiple conferences and intends to continue. She learns and meets so many people at conferences. Her website is www.victoriapinder.com, and she’ll continue to grow my web presence. She is working hard on other projects and found the time to plan her wedding this year.
Before writing, her father had taken her to many star trek conventions and on her own she grew up as the only girl in the 90s at the comic book store. Science Fiction was her first love, but contemporary romance was her second. She’s sticking with contemporaries for the near future.
Member of Florida Romance Writers, Contemporary Romance, Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal chapter of RWA, Celtic Hearts and Savvy Authors.

VEILED TARGET
Veilers #1
Robin Bielman
Released July 22nd, 2014



Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.

Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancĂ©’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.

Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.

Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction. Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.

“Cut the crap, Tess. Why were you following me?”
“How do you know I was following you?” Oops. She meant to say, “What makes you think I was following you?”
He gave a knowing smile—that looked ridiculously sexy rather than irritating. “I know you don’t want to insult my intelligence so let’s just say for argument’s sake, if you were following me, why would that be?”
At least she’d gotten him to change his tone.
“Truthfully?” She leaned a little closer to him. She couldn’t help it.
“That would be nice.”
“I’m really not a very nice person,” she announced.
“Neither am I.” He reached out and moved a strand of hair behind her ear.
Was he trying to confuse her? Because it was working. She’d nearly fallen into his hand before he pulled it away. He was indeed a very bad man.
“That’s good. I hate nice guys. So where does that leave us?”
“I haven’t got all night, Tess.” He lowered his chin, indicating—she presumed—he was growing tired of their banter.
She lifted an eyebrow. “No? That’s too bad. I’m a night owl. I can—”
“Answer my question before I haul you to your car over my shoulder.” His tone sent a little zing of pleasure right to the tips of her breasts.
“As if you could—” She was over his shoulder in one second flat. He moved swiftly, quietly and with superhuman strength. Uh oh. “Hey, put me down!”
He started down the alley, seemingly unbothered by her spastic attempts to get him to let her go. “You ready to walk and talk now?”
“Fine,” she conceded, although the view of his backside was pretty damn good.
When both feet securely hit the ground, she tugged down her dress and shifted the V-neck into place. He watched her squirm to put the rest of the material back where it belonged and his roving eyes heated her from the inside out.
“I followed you because I wanted to help.”
He started walking. “Do I look like I need help?” A little gleam—and major interest?—flickered in his sideways glance.
“Well, no. But I’m very capable and I didn’t feel like going home, so I decided there was no harm in making myself available to you should you need me.” She took a deep breath. It was time to put the question out there. “Did you know Dane is a—”
“Wolfen? Yeah I know.”
“How do you—”
He stopped and turned toward her with confusion and passion in his deep blue eyes. For several seconds he stared at her, like he was trying to get inside her head. Guess what she was thinking. “I’m the leader of the Night Runners,” he finally said.
She imagined he’d told her something he’d never told another human being before.
What the hell was she going to do now?

Watch Me, Baby



Watch Me Baby
by Kristin Secorsky
Tour Organizer N K Author Services




Alison is a gorgeous yet socially awkward assistant in the human resources department. Never dating often, Alison prefers her cyber world. She meets Colin, a sexy new hire in the IT department who catches her looking at naughty pictures on her phone at work. This embarrassing first introduction turns into a steamy weekend of online cybersex between her and Colin. After watching each other online, they are ready to do more than just watch when Monday comes around.

Meet Anna

Anna Karam enjoys reading and writing erotica. She currently has three self-published erotic short stories out. Anna lives with her family in Texas.

Excerpt

            I need some sexy time…and a drink. I stared at the little clock in the bottom right hand corner of my computer. Hurry up five o’clock! I have forty minutes left at work before I can get out of there for the weekend. I look around my drab cubicle surveying the contents: calendar, tissue, hand sanitizer, lotion, a big refillable coffee mug for my caffeine addiction, and a picture of my cat. Yes my big, fluffy, white Persian cat, Sebastian. His big, blue eyes stared back at me looking bored. Oh my God I am so pathetic. My workspace didn’t have pictures of kids or a husband…not even a boyfriend.
            My last relationship ended badly, which is why I was now working as an assistant in the human resources department instead of running it like at my last job. I made the mistake of sleeping with my old boss. I quit my job when that didn’t work out and took a lower paying job as an assistant just so I could keep my condo.
            Thirty minutes left! I begin filing away documents and saving open files on my computer. When there was nothing left to do, I opened up Facebook on my Iphone and scrolled down the wall. Who cares…cute…blah blah blah… I kept passing mindless posts but paused when I saw a scorching hot image from one of my favorite erotica authors that I follow online. All I could see was a naked woman straddling a man on end of a bed with his face buried in her pussy. The woman’s hand gripped the sides of his head as she gazed down, watching him devour her. Fuck that is so hot! I feel a familiar tingling between my thighs. I stare at the sexy image, knowing I would need to go straight home and take out my rabbit.
            “Excuse me,” a male voice says, interrupting my dirty fantasies.
             I slam my phone down on my desk quickly and look up embarrassed as if he knew what I had been looking at. I felt the warmth of blood rushing to my cheeks as I stare up at the sexiest man I had seen in some time. He appeared to be in his late twenties like myself, short brown hair, blue eyes, and stubble I want to rub my pussy against. Don’t fantasize about him while you talk to him! My mind is screaming at myself to stay focused as I try to find words to talk to him.
            He chuckles and smiles at me flirtatiously. “Are you alright?”
            “Yes,” I say breathily. “I’m sorry you just caught me off guard. Can I help you?”
            “Is Deb still around?”
            “No she left early to take her kid to the dentist. Is there something I can do for you?” I ask. My mind immediately returns to the dirty path. Maybe something I can do TO you?
            “Yes, there is something you can do for me,” he says mysteriously. “But for now I need to leave this new hire paperwork with someone.”
            “I can take it. Debbie would just have given it to me to process anyway. I will let her know you left it with me though.”
            “Thank you,” he replied. “I’m Colin by the way.
            “Alison,” I reply shyly. I am not good with people. Call it shyness or social anxiety but I feel most comfortable in my little online world. I don’t go out often to meet people, which is probably why I got mixed up with my old boss. “Nice to meet you, Colin. What department do you work in?”
            “IT,” he replies. “I am a computer geek.”
            I laugh and he smiles at me. He bends over inches away from my face, presses the button on my Iphone, and slides the unlock button, opening up the screen to the naughty picture I had been looking at moments before he came to my desk. God he smells good...like Dolce & Gabbana.
             “I had to get a second look at that,” he says, looking at the bright screen. 
            Second look! I realize he had seen my phone when he came to my desk. I stare at him open-mouthed and embarrassed. I had been too distracted by his delicious scent and his proximity to realize what he was doing with my phone. 
            Colin winks at me and gives me a devilish smile, “Naughty girl…” Then he walks off, tapping the top of my cubicle with his hand as he passes by. “Have a good weekend, Alison,” he calls out from the other side of the cubicle. I have never been so embarrassed in my life. How will I ever be able to look him in the face again? I am never calling for IT help…ever!

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.
So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all...
(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)
The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.
