I really love putting these posts together. Why? Because I discover books like Secrets and Sins: Malachim by Naima Simone, which is one HOT and suspenseful read. I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn't put this book down. It's the second title in Naima Simone's fascinating, dark, suspenseful, and sizzling Secrets and Sins series about four men who are closer than brothers. Born days spart in the same hospital, their mothers bonded together like sisters and name them for four angels. This series unravels a secret they all share and threats to their love interests. Naima Simone rocks and I'm now adding her to my must-read author list. Like Shiloh Walker, she serves up HOT and addictive suspense. Check this title out. It's free. But be warned, you'll be one-clicking the other the other three books too!
Secrets and Sins: Malachim (A Secrets and Sins Novel) (Entangled Ignite) by Naima SimoneLooking like sin and smelling like trouble…Boston attorney Malachim Jerrod doesn’t trust anyone. His father and his ex-fiancé taught him that hard lesson. So when a beautiful stranger arrives on his doorstep his first reaction is to back away—far away. Danielle Warren wants a job, but his law business is falling apart, and her credentials are bare-bones at best. Still, there’s something about her that, try as he might, he’s unable to resist. The vulnerability in her soft voice? The way she flinches when he gets too close? The yearning he sees mirrored in her eyes when she looks at him?
She’s the last thing he needs…Two years ago, Danielle barely escaped alive from her powerful and abusive ex-husband. Now her ex is out of prison, and he’s coming for her. She knows she must leave her new job and run. Disappear—to keep herself and those she loves safe. Including her sexy boss, who has sparked feelings in her heart she never thought she’d feel again. Yet, she can’t help but wonder...should she let down her guard and trust Malachim with the truth?
But the only one he desires.Working together brings them closer than ever—but reveals secrets and sins best left buried in the past. Their lives and their passionate love at stake, Danielle and Malachim must fight to survive to grasp the future of their dreams.
I really like Robyn Peterman. I'd never read her books before, Three Southern Beaches: A Summer Beach Read Box Set, her summer thee-book anthology (written with Kathleen Brooks and Christie Craig). But I really loved her irreverent humor in her paranormal romance. If you'd like to sample her laugh-out-loud hot romance style, one-click now for Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned Series Book 1) by Robyn Peterman, the first book in her Hot Damned series.
Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned Series Book 1) by Robyn PetermanVampyres don’t exist. They absolutely do not exist.
At least I didn’t think they did ‘til I tried to quit smoking and ended up Undead. Who in the hell did I screw over in a former life that my getting healthy equates with dead?
Now I’m a Vampyre. Yes, we exist whether we want to or not. However, I have to admit, the perks aren’t bad. My girls no longer jiggle, my ass is higher than a kite and the latest Prada keeps finding its way to my wardrobe. On the downside, I’m stuck with an obscenely profane Guardian Angel who looks like Oprah and a Fairy Fighting Coach who’s teaching me to annihilate like the Terminator.
To complicate matters, my libido has increased to Vampyric proportions and my attraction to a hotter than Satan’s underpants killer rogue Vampyre is not only dangerous . . . it’s possibly deadly. For real dead. Permanent death isn’t on my agenda. Avoiding him is my only option. Of course, since he thinks I’m his, it’s easier said than done. Like THAT’S not enough to deal with, all the other Vampyres think I’m some sort of Chosen One.
Holy Hell, if I’m in charge of saving an entire race of blood suckers, the Undead are in for one hell of a ride.
One of my favorite publishers, Bell Bridge Books, is offering a few first in series titles for free right now. Margaret Nava's Egret Cove caught my interest as it's a bit different from a standard romance, but who says love or dreams have to stop at 35? Check it out and one-click to add a little bit of verve to your eReader.
Egret Cove (The Angela Dunn Series) by Margaret NavaAt sixty-something years old Angela Dunn has given up on finding much excitement in her life. She's got her half-blind dog, Gizmo, a crummy retail job, a tiny house, and no close friends or family to call on in her Kokomo, Indiana hometown. But when her brother, Tony, calls from Florida with a house-sitting offer, Angela has to gear up all her courage to accept. What about the bugs? The alligators? Her fear of hurricanes? Not knowing what else to do, she sells her few belongings, loads the dog into her SUV, and soon, there she is: living in a cute-as-a-bug house trailer, being romanced by a handsome, gray-haired Italian, making friends with wild women, and trying very hard to let go of the past and find the joy in life once more.

Ex-Navy Corpsman, Nicholas Hart, has moved to Hawks Mountain in hope that its timeless Appalachian serenity will help him overcome his painful war memories.

Her novels have been translated into seven languages and are sold in seventeen countries. She lives in St. Augustine, Florida, with her husband and two dogs.
I really enjoy Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's snarky humor in her Accidentally Yours series and was delighted to see this new Indie title. Confession time.

So what could they possibly be doing inside?
Harper Branton thinks she knows their dirty little secret, and it’s just the story to save her mess of a journalistic career. There’s just one problem: her competition. He’s sexy, he’s arrogant, and he’s about turn Harper’s life upside down with a few secrets of his own.
OMG I love Juliana Stone. I. DO. She's one of those authors I discovered when putting together a free post a few months ago. After I read first one of her series, then the next, I realized she's one of those writers that just "gets the characters." Not all of them are admirable at first, but they grow on you - and mature in themselves. I really, really liked this book when I read it back in February. Now it's free. Don't resist, one-click it away!
Tucker (The Family Simon Book 1) by Juliana StoneWhen all hope is gone, can love still will find a way?
Tucker Simon has given up on love. After a tragedy, it’s just not in the cards for him, and he wishes his family would get off his back. He’s fine—or at least he thought he was--until a family wedding forces him to address a few things, namely his date, Abby Mathews. She's been put in the ‘friend’ category, mostly because she deserves so much more than what he can give. But the more time that he spends with her, Tucker begins to think that maybe there is a chance for love after all...
Abby Mathews has been in love with Tucker Simon since he walked into her family’s bar nearly a year ago. But he’s got baggage and heartache a plenty. His one-night-stands isn’t going to lessen that no matter what he thinks. Tucker needs a friend, but Abby wants to give him more, and as they navigate their way through a weekend in Florida, their attraction can’t be ignored. Abby has to make a choice. Does she cherish their friendship and take what she can get? Or does she go after what she really wants, which is Tucker’s heart…

I really LOVE Joni Hahn's paranormal / scifi romance series, The D.I.R.E Agency.

Raised in the art of warfare, Former Navy SEAL, Tristan Jacobs, has always been a force to reckon with. Now that D.I.R.E. has successfully implemented his scientific enhancements, he’s a walking weapon. Unstoppable, as long as he stays focused. No relationships.
When ex-BUD/S teammate, Aidan Monroe, interrupts his long-awaited sabbatical to call in a favor, Tristan reluctantly fills the simple request: take out his sister’s fiancé.
One problem: Rachel Monroe - smokin’ hot, kind-hearted, and in desperate need of a protector. After the best sex of his life, Tristan’s afraid unstoppable is just a memory. Knowing Aidan’s temper, Tristan could be, too.
Rachel Monroe had a plan to help her mother. Her brother ruined everything when his gorgeous, super-agent friend teleported her to some forsaken island - and his bed. She’s drawn to him despite the fact he’s a professional agent, much like the people suspected of killing her father.
Now, his enemies have come to her small town, looking for vengeance. Have they found more than they bargained for? Or, does the past have its own retribution in mind?

Jessica Scott's military romance Coming Home series is on my must-read, must-buy list. It should be on yours too. Scott is an author who KNOWS what she's writing about and her military men and women are authentic. When I read her books my heart breaks a bit. I laugh a lot. And I cry. Why?

But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.

For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other.

Except, the more time he spends with her, the more he falls under her spell. Can he trust her, or is he walking into another deadly trap?
Book 3: Deathtrap
She'd been "the sick girl" for most of her life. She refused to go straight to "the weird girl". Heart-transplant recipient Sophie Curtis has been in her own antiseptic bubble for so long, she just might not be able to venture out into the real world again. Her spooky body memories are scary enough, but then she finds herself in the cross hairs of a killer.
"Love was blind, people said. But lust was blind, deaf and reckless." Ethan Bing hadn't been a great romantic before he became a cop. Whatever shred of optimism he had left after becoming Broslin Chief of Police had been seared out of him by the unsolved murder of his wife two years before. A new case brings the killer within reach just as Sophie pops into his life. She gets through his defenses like no other before, but soon it becomes clear that she's been selected as the killer's next victim.
