Seized by Seduction is Now Available!!



Seized by Seduction, an all-new sexy standalone from Brenda Jackson is now available!

One glance is all it takes

From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She's a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her—the closer, the better—as she's drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry.



Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there's no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar's strength and skill. If he can't risk the heart he's always held in check, they'll both lose for good…

Seized by Seduction is my first encounter with Brenda Jackson's writing. The Protector series is a series of stand alone novels that involve danger and desire, and the most definitely hunkiest of men.

Randi Fuller is a psychic consultant for the FBI. While wrapping up a case that involved saving the lives of Striker Jennings and Margo Connelly, she locks eyes with her soul mate. She and Quasar Patterson are destined for each other, but he doesn't know it yet. When the opportunity for them to meet in person finally arrives their desire creates sparks!

We've heard the whole knight and shining armor spiel a million times before, but Brenda Jackson takes it to a whole new level. A dangerous case involving a brewing gang war takes Randi to Quasar's home in LA. Even though he has to face the emotional drama of his family, when someone threatens Randi's life Quasar makes it his priority to protect her. Just imagine a lot of male posturing and protectiveness and you've got Quasar in a nutshell.

The romance is intense and intriguing all at once. Both Randi and Quasar are phenomenal characters that take your breath away because of their interesting backgrounds and sheer awesomeness. If you haven't jumped into this series, you're missing out!

RITA Nominated TELL ME HOW THIS ENDS Sale Alert!


In TELL ME HOW THIS ENDS Ryan is in love, Jude is in denial, and Lizzie wants both brothers, but by the time the truth comes out everyone is in too deep. No one wants to get hurt, but love and desire have a way of testing even the strongest bonds. Fans of Tamarra Webber and Erin McCarthy will adore this emotional and heartfelt RITA nominated family drama.

Snag it while you can for just $1.99! 

Dear Readers,

Years ago a restless, troubled man sprang to life in my head, and he wouldn't leave me alone. He had a younger brother that he loved more than anything in the world, so I sat down and tried to write their story. And it wasn't very good. But these brothers--Jude and Ryan--never left me. A decade later, I realized that, like Frankenstein's monster, they were waiting for me to create their loves. And a few months later, Tell Me How This Ends was born.

The book is the first in the Tell Me trilogy, which is heartfelt, fun, and sometimes emotional. It was my pleasure to follow Jude, Ryan, and their friends through three books. I'm not going to lie; there were tears when I wrote the final scene.

I am so honored that Tell Me How This Ends has been nominated for a RITA award, but I'm even more humbled by the readers who have taken the time to tell me they love the book. I hope you love it, too.

2017 RITA® Finalist

Brothers Jude and Ryan McAllister are inseparable. When Jude stepped in to raise Ryan after the death of their mother, it became the two of them against the world. But the scars it left were bone-deep. Then Lizzie Price comes along.



Lizzie hopes Ryan's kindness can help heal her wounds from a toxic relationship. But when she meets Jude, their powerful attraction makes him difficult to resist. The problem is, Lizzie doesn't realize Jude and Ryan are brothers, and they don't know they're falling for the same girl.

By the time the truth comes out, everyone is in too deep. Ryan is in love, Jude is in denial, and Lizzie wants both brothers. All of them agree that no one deserves to get hurt. But love and desire have a way of testing even the strongest bonds.

Victoria De La O's RITA nominated novel takes readers inside the lives of two brothers who mean everything to each other. Love struts between Ryan and Jude McAllister in the form of smart mouth Lizzie Price who finds both brothers equally fascinating for different reasons. Fans of Erin McCarthy will revel in Tell Me How This Ends!

The strong emotion and romance blend beautifully as these lovable characters battle their demons and conquer love. It's so easy to fall into Lizzie's story as she flirts with a man she knows is dangerous to her heart and instead, unknowingly, pursues his younger brother. Though she finds herself between two brothers, each with baggage of their own, Lizzie's determined to make another go at love. This is one love triangle that didn't incite gagging or any other less positive reaction. I don't have anything against love triangle's as long as they're not typical or have unsatisfying ends. Thankfully, Tell Me How This Ends exhibits none of those characteristics! It's believable because it finds balance in the chaos of emotions that could explode from such a situation. It's not overdone and really makes you feel for the decisions Lizzie, Jude and Ryan have to make.

I wasn't expecting to read from the perspective of Jude, Ryan, and Lizzie in alternating chapters, but it was a nice touch that opened the story and invited me in deeper. The snark and sass bring humor and delight to characters who otherwise would have come across as average college students just navigating life and love carrying baggage. The variation of personalities offer a little something for readers to grab on to.

I can totally see why Tell Me How This Ends received it's RITA nomination! Victoria De La O provides readers with a story that pulls you in for a good time and sends you off with a treat.

Excerpt from TELL ME HOW THIS ENDS
Copyright © 2016 Victoria De La O

I can’t sleep, so I head to the kitchen. I don’t bother to turn on the lights, because the dark doesn’t scare me. Most of the terrifying things in life happen in the daylight.
Ryan must be up, too, because I see light coming from the kitchen. Sometimes we meet like this in the middle of the night and eat a snack. I make the PB&J, and he pours the milk.
There is someone standing at the faucet but it’s not Ryan, and my brain takes an extra couple seconds to compute what I’m seeing. Elizabeth is there, her back turned to me, her face in profile. Her hair is messy and long, and she’s wearing a shirt that comes to midthigh. She turns around and sees me. Her mouth and eyes go wide, but she doesn’t scream, like a silent movie actress.
“What are you doing here?” she asks, which doesn’t make sense to me at first. Then I see she’s wearing Ryan’s Panic! at the Disco T-shirt. My brain has apparently been dormant for the past two minutes, because suddenly, it chugs to life. My synapses fire, and I make connections, and I know that this is the girl my brother has just fucked, and even worse, has fallen for.
I can’t help it: I start to laugh. I laugh so hard that my eyes water, and I slide against the cabinets to the floor. She walks around the counter and stands in front of me. I stare at her legs, which are long and smooth. She crouches down, pulling her—Ryan’s—T-shirt down so I don’t see anything essential on the way.
“Stop it,” she says, looking at me like I’m crazy.
“Guess it’s going well with college boy,” I say, taking in her bedhead. “You definitely picked the better brother.”
“Oh, my God,” She covers her mouth, and I feel like a bully, but I can’t care.

Forbidden Promises Excerpt:
Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert
She nearly tripped over Jude when she opened the door, and that was the last straw. “What is your problem?”
He raised a single eyebrow, not looking perturbed in the least. “Sorry?”
“No, you’re not. You’re not sorry that you turned me down last night, or that you left in a hurry, or that you were an…an insufferable jackass this morning.”
If anything, his eyebrow inched higher. “You’re in a mood.”
“Are you kidding me?” She pushed at his chest, but he didn’t even pretend she had the strength to move him. “You weren’t interested last night, so you don’t get to waltz into the diner and order me to go out with you. I’ve taken orders my entire life, and I’ll be damned before I take one from you.” The outburst left her feeling deflated, but she clamped her mouth shut and refused to apologize. Maybe she was being the slightest bit dramatic, but that didn’t mean she was wrong.
Jude took a step closer, towering over her, his shoulders so broad, they filled the doorway. “Are you done?”
Just like that, she had a whole lot more to say. “Actually—”
“That was a rhetorical question, sunshine.” His big hand cupped the back of her neck, his thumb tracing over her jaw and up to drag against her bottom lip.
The touch shocked her into silence.
For a moment. “Jude—”
Apparently he wasn’t finished. “I didn’t say no last night because I wasn’t interested. I wouldn’t have apologized—twice—if I wasn’t interested.”
“But—”
“You want to know the truth? The truth is that I can’t look at you without wanting to strip you down, to run my hands over that tight little body of yours, to spread those sweet thighs and fuck you with my tongue until you’re screaming my name and begging for mercy.”
She swayed, her anger, her ability to think or move or talk or do anything except stare helplessly at him, all gone. She licked her lips, forgetting that his thumb was there, and stroked him with her tongue instead. His chocolate eyes went even darker, and he suddenly seemed larger.
Say something.
“You shouldn’t say things like that.”
“It’s the fucking truth, sunshine.” He stroked her bottom lip with his thumb, his hand gentle yet holding her in place easily. “You’re a good girl. I don’t have to spend any time with you to know that. You deserve better than the likes of me, even for a fuck. But that’s the difference between us. I’m not good. I might as well be the goddamn devil as far as you’re concerned, but I’ve never been good at walking away when I have my mind set on something. And, sunshine, I have my mind set on you.
She couldn’t speak, couldn’t take a step, though she was at a loss if she’d move away from or toward him. It was like he held her captive with only a single hand, stalling out any and all reasoning ability.
Jude’s grip tightened, ever so slightly. “I was going to take you out. It’s not my scene, but I was willing to give it a shot. I changed my mind.” He stepped into her, his chest lightly pressed against her breasts, his thighs bracketing hers, his…Oh my good lord. His hard length pressed against her stomach, and it felt perfectly in proportion with the rest of his massive body, not that she was an expert on these matters.
His other hand came to rest on her hip, fingers bunching the fabric of her dress as he kneaded her. “Tell me to stop, and it’s done. I’ll walk away, and I’ll do my damnedest to leave you alone. Tell me to walk away, sunshine. Just say the words.”
She knew he was right. He was no good for her, and this would only end in tears on her part. The man wasn’t asking to date her. He didn’t want to get to know her. He was telling her all the things he’d do to her body.
But she couldn’t say the words to make him leave.
Sloan had never taken anything for herself in her entire life. She’d stayed in the background and gone with the flow and done everything in her power to play least in sight. Her brothers ran off any boy remotely interested in her, and she’d allowed it to happen. If her father had decided to move forward on his plans to marry her off, she would have walked down the aisle to a man of his choosing.
She’d never done a single selfish thing in her life until she asked Teague to help her escape.
Until she tentatively ran her hands up Jude’s chest, sucking in her breath at the way his muscles tensed beneath her fingers. Until she looked up into his stormy dark eyes and said the word that would damn them both. “Stay.”

Praise for The O’Malleys Series

"It can be hard to make a ruthless assassin into a sympathetic character, but Robert handles the task with ease. She also deftly shows Sloan’s transformation from a pampered and protected naïf to a strong woman with a backbone of pure steel. A tension-filled plot full of deceit, betrayal, and sizzling love scenes will make it impossible for readers to set the book down."—Publishers Weekly on FORBIDDEN PROMISES

“You will finish it in one sitting and die after you’re done because the next book isn't out yet. This was one sexy ride!”—Reviewer Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews on FORBIDDEN PROMISES

“Katee Robert's has created a fictional underworld of such veracity, that one almost expects the characters to turn up on the front-page news. It never feels over the top or implausible; the author writes extremely well-crafted stories… The romance between Cillian and Olivia is very beautiful, tender and real.”—Fresh Fiction on AN INDECENT PROPOSAL

“Will keep you turning pages.”—RT Book Reviews on THE WEDDING PACT

“If you like angsty reads, this book is right up your wheelhouse.”—Heroes & Heartbreakers on THE WEDDING PACT

"Dark, dirty, and dead sexy."—Tiffany Reisz, bestselling author of The Original Sinners series, on THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT

About Katee Robert

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it 'a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension." When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Blog Tour: The Last Chance Matinee (Review)

From New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart comes the first novel in her all-new series, The Hudson Sisters, following a trio of reluctant sisters as they set out to fulfill their father’s dying wish. In the process, they find not only themselves, but the father they only thought they knew.

When celebrated and respected agent Fritz Hudson passes away, he leaves a trail of Hollywood glory in his wake—and two separate families who never knew the other existed. Allie and Des Hudson are products of Fritz’s first marriage to Honora, a beautiful but troubled starlet whose life ended in a tragic overdose. Meanwhile, Fritz was falling in love on the Delaware Bay with New Age hippie Susa Pratt—they had a daughter together, Cara, and while Fritz loved Susa with everything he had, he never quite managed to tell her or Cara about his West Coast family.





Now Fritz is gone, and the three sisters are brought together under strange circumstances: there’s a large inheritance to be had that could save Allie from her ever-deepening debt following a disastrous divorce, allow Des to open a rescue shelter for abused and wounded animals, and give Cara a fresh start after her husband left her for her best friend—but only if the sisters upend their lives and work together to restore an old, decrepit theater that was Fritz’s obsession growing up in his small hometown in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. Guided by Fritz’s closest friend and longtime attorney, Pete Wheeler, the sisters come together—whether they like it or not—to turn their father’s dream into a reality, and might just come away with far more than they bargained for.

Mariah Stewart has blown me away with her new series featuring the Hudson sisters. The Last Chance Matinee is a multifaceted story of family and what happens you put three sisters together to bring their father's dream to reality.

When Allie and Des come together to hear the reading of their father's will they learn of their half-sister Cara. The three girls are stunned to learn about their father's double life. Add to that revelation, his will indicates that they must head to his hometown to restore their family legacy: the Sugarhouse Theater. The only way to ensure their inheritance is to complete the restoration without bailing on the project. So the girls head to Hidden Falls, Pennsylvania to fulfill Fritz's dying dream: for the girls to know each other and their heritage.

The Last Chance Matinee lays the foundation for the series while simultaneously highlighting each of the sisters' personal situations and revealing the secrets of their father's past. To further engage readers there's romantic tension, of course, and the drama of three blindsided sisters getting to know each other. This complex storyline will suck you in immediately, because Mariah Stewart is just that good! On top of all the details she must have amassed to write a vivid, emotional story Allie, Des, and Cara are distinct characters that each have their own stories. Though The Last Chance Matinee places Cara at the forefront of this novel, the voices of all three sisters are heard throughout the story. When I realized how the story was set up in the outset of the novel I knew that I was going to breeze through. Even as Stewart juggles these three storylines the story is well-planned and easy to follow.

There's something about plots set in small towns that make for the most memorable and entertaining stories. Mariah Stewart's creation of Hidden Falls is no exception. Between the 'everyone knows everyone' connections and its quaint appeal I was really hoping that Hidden Falls was a real place I could go visit, especially since it's still firmly stuck in my head! Just as readers are able to paint a vivid mental picture of Hidden Falls, the Hudson sisters find bits and pieces of their father's childhood to paint a picture of the man he was before death. Not only are they beginning to solve the mystery of his actions, they learn the history of their descendants. Stewart knows how to keep you reading while providing a full, rich plot. Every scene leads somewhere interesting and by the end of the novel you'll know there's more to come.

I've only read a couple of Mariah Stewart's previous novels. The Last Chance Matinee seems to be written in a similar vein to the Chesapeake Diaries while also offering something different for long time fans. It would even appeal to readers of Kristan Higgans or Sophie Kinsella. I highly recommend this story to Chesapeake Diaries fans and even readers who haven't yet given Mariah Stewart a chance!
*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*

From the Preface, The Last Chance Matinee:
Everyone is familiar with the adage “write what you know”; it’s a saying that has dictated much of my decades-long career in publishing. But this time, it was what I (or rather, my mother) didn’t know that formed the basis for this first book in my new Hudson Sisters series.

When my mother was in her mid-forties, she received a letter from a woman named Alice, the wife of her recently deceased cousin Bill. Alice thanked my mother for the sympathy card she’d sent her, and finished her note by saying, “You do know that Bill was your half brother, right?”

Ah, no. She did not.

…Of course, I was fascinated. My grandfather died when I was four or five years old, and I have very little memory of him other than his deep, hearty laugh. I’ve been thinking for years that this foundation of a love child and secret siblings would make a great story; but not knowing all the facts, I was free to fill in the blanks—and so I did. Years passed before I felt I had the right story in my head. This is that story. I hope you enjoy my version of what could happen under such circumstances

Blog Tour: An Inspiring Romance: Any Day Now (Review)

The highly anticipated sequel to #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr's What We Find transports readers back to Sullivan's Crossing. The rustic campground at the crossroads of the Colorado and Continental Divide trails welcomes everyone—whether you're looking for a relaxing weekend getaway or a whole new lease on life. It's a wonderful place where good people face their challenges with humor, strength and love.

For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet.




Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future. In Sullivan's Crossing Sierra learns to cherish the family you are given and the family you choose.

Robyn Carr is a mastermind when it comes to creating realistic, touching stories. Any Day Now is no exception as readers are introduced to a young woman who suffered a traumatic experience, but comes out on the other side stronger than ever. This is an inspiring romance for readers of Mariah Stewart and RaeAnne Thayne!

Sierra Jones, the baby sister of Cal Jones from the previous Sullivan's Crossing novel, What We Find, has finally made the move to Colorado. She's struggling with her dark past but is determined to recover and remain positive about her future. What she doesn't expect to find is that Sullivan's Crossing is just what she needs to heal her soul. The air, the view and the people, especially a certain hunky firefighter, convince her that it is possible to have it all.

I enjoyed Any Day Now for so many reasons, but the foremost is because of how real the characters are. Even the secondary characters like Tom Canaday and Lola, who get a little romantic page time, have a story that reflects the situation of single parents. The writing is vivid and humorous. When it comes to writing the scenes that are more intense and dark in nature, Carr follows up with lighter interactions and the antics of the cutest puppy in literature!

Sierra is a well rounded character with a big heart and even bigger future. I love that she isn't perfect and hasn't always made the right choices, but still pushes toward redemption and happiness. The Sullivan's Crossing series will surely continue in the same vein and I'm excited to see whose story is next.
