The Consequences By Colette Freedman ~Release Day~

In the riveting follow-up to her acclaimed debut novel, Colette Freedman explores the aftermath of infidelity from three different perspectives--husband, wife, and mistress.

The end of an affair may be only the beginning. . .
Over the course of one tumultuous Christmas Eve, Kathy Walker confirmed her suspicions about her husband's affair, confronted his mistress, Stephanie, and saved her marriage. She and Robert have eighteen years, two teenagers, and a film production business between them--plus a bond that Kathy has no intention of giving up on. Yet though Robert is contrite, Kathy can't quite silence her doubts.

While Robert reels from his wife's ultimatum and his mistress's rejection, Stephanie makes a discovery: she's pregnant. Her resolve to stay away from Robert wavers now that they could make a real family together. And in the days that follow, Stephanie, Robert, and Kathy must each reckon with the intricate realities of desire, the repercussions of betrayal, and the secrets that, once revealed, ripple through lives and relationships in thoroughly unexpected ways.

Forty 2 Days (Billionaire Banker Series) Georgia Le Carre

Devastatingly handsome billionaire, Blake Law Barrington was Lana Blooms first and only love.  From the moment they touched his power was overwhelming. Their arrangement quickly developed into a passionate romance that captivated her heart and took her on an incredible sexual journey she never wanted to end.
The future together looked bright until Lana made a terrible mistake.  So, she did the only thing she could... she ran.

Away from her incredible life, away from the man of her dreams, but she should have known a man such as Blake Law Barrington was impossible to escape.  Now, he’s back in her life and determined that she should taste the bitterness of his pain.

Shocked at how rough the sex has become and humiliated that she is actually participating so willingly in her punishment, she despairs if she will ever feel the warmth of his touch—the solidity of his trust again?  And even if she can win his trust, loyalties are yet to be decided, and secrets to be revealed—secrets that will test them both to their limits.

Will Lana be able to tear down the walls that surround Blake’s heart, and break him free of the brutal power of immense wealth?

Can Blake hold on to Lana’s heart when she discovers the enormity of the dark secrets that inhabit the Barrington family?

Lana has always believed that love conquers all. She is about to test that belief…

Hahahaha....Nope not out til the 24th!!!
(Only 2 days left, I hear there's a padded room next to mine available!)

My Thoughts
I'll be very honest...I was sooooo upset after Billionaire Banker's ending that I almost went bonkers wanting to see what happened next. Dude Lana left after Blake jumped in front of a car for her. Oh, and she's pregnant and he doesn't know!!!

Lana was such a vivid character, nothing trashy, but just raw and likable now here in the second ...WOW!
What happened to dear sweet Lana?
Still so naive, but I have to say I'd be damned if I owed that man (Blake) anything, really WTF...if he was any man he should of not only marked her accounts but looked harder for her and wholly boogers I'd sure as all heck like to know what the letter said that dear Victoria concocted ....that snake!! URGH!!!
That being said I rather enjoyed the 42 days left from the original contract. It had some interesting scenes..Blake never seemed to have rough sex in him...although I'd give him an B for effort. (do remember this is a book for mature adults) The sex scenes we are graced with far exceed those from the first book. They are tastefully done and purely enjoyable.

The story on a whole is a non-stop ride. You really don't know who you should be watching or which person in the story you should trust or not. Trust being the key point with the whole tale. Just when you think everything is going to be the all fairy-tale ending....Hell no....
It's kinda like the whole Pretty Woman thing, but instead of Richard Gere doing the fire escape thing.....Blake does a reverse spy/ murder thing....Way cooler if you ask me....LOL
But that still leaves you to question...
What about the Snake , Victoria.....
What about Billie....was Muscle guy just a set-up????
Truly an AWESOME read.....I do recommend reading Billionaire Banker before otherwise you'll be missing all the cool stuff!!!!
Definitely an author to keep an eye on!!!

Billionaire Banker By Georgia Le Carre

Time is running out for Lana Bloom.  She needs money desperately and fast.  And the only thing she has to sell is her body.  When she walks into that exclusive restaurant she does not know that the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied into the restaurant.

Utterly confident and breathtakingly handsome, Blake Law Barrington is the fourth generation of an illustrious banking family.  He has everything he desires, and everything under control.  As is the custom in the great, old houses, marriage is a time of consolidation and expansion.  Blake is due to marry Victoria Montgomery, daughter of the Fourth Earl of Hardwicke.

If he had left that restaurant five minutes earlier he would not have seen the girl in the cheap, orange dress and the six-inch high, plastic platforms walk in.  

His carefully constructed universe would still be intact…and his terrible secret, safe.

My Thoughts
It all started so simple....LOL
It amazes me how naive Lana really is going into all of this. It's so crazy thinking that her "good deed" would turn into such a huge ordeal.
I personally would have done the same thing in her shoes. I would have done my hair, borrowed shoes, and a dress, however I would have done a better check on the man I was going to try to sale myself to.
What a piece of poop!!! OMG!!! I know things were horrid but even some lines need to be drawn.
I was stand-offish with Blake.....he was just like as he said .....dressing his new doll....playing with his doll.....Only problem...
He was changing the rules, he was falling in love with his doll and not getting tired of her.
I enjoyed how detailed the author made all the scenes from shopping to eating , right down to descriptive sex scenes....passionate and forth coming. Well worth reading.
As with every great story the twists are bound to happen and turns aren't as pretty as love.....so when things just start to move forward and feelings start to shine....car accident....contract....money exchange....and we are left with a cliff-hanger!!!!

About the Author:
Bella Ross is a writer with many passions, two of which are writing and travelling. She wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat and her entrepreneurial spirit flourished instead. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned and the time was right to follow her bliss.
She believes it’s never too late to follow your dreams/bliss.
Her books/stories are her first attempt at erotic romance. She loves the genre and its endless creative possibilities. She likes pairing bold and dynamic (Alpha) men with sexy and strong women – which in her opinion – make for a hot and sizzling combination. With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her ‘Wanderlust Series’ take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. It’s the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires.
When she’s not writing, she’s reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas.
She loves to hear from readers, and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. You can also sign up for her mailing list to be notified about new releases and promotional offers.

The Transmigration of Cora Riley by Ellie Di Julio ~Cover Reveal & Giveaway~

The Transmigration of Cora Riley 

Urban Fantasy
Date to be Published3/4/2014

Average family. Average job. Average existential crisis.

After thirty boring years, nothing about Cora Riley’s life has measured up to her childhood dreams of being truly extraordinary. It’s too bad that the night she decides to seek out her specialness she crashes on a rural highway.

Cora wakes in the clutches of the Mistress of the underworld who sets her a seemingly impossible quest. If she wants a second chance at life, Cora must find her way through the dozen heavens and return to the castle in three days.

With the help of an unusual guardian angel named Jack and a little boy named Xavier, Cora navigates the afterlife doorfield and quickly learns that gods and monsters are very real indeed. Terrifying and tempting obstacles litter her path; only the power of belief – in the Otherworld, in her companions, and in herself – will return her to the land of the living.


Ellie Di Julio

Ellie Di Julio is a nomadic writer currently living in Hamilton, Ontario with her Robert Downey, Jr. lookalike husband and their three cats. Between nerd activities like playing Dungeons & Dragons or watching Top Gear, she enthusiastically destroys the kitchen and tries to figure out what it's all about, when you really get down to it. She also writes urban fantasy novels riddled with pop culture references and sexy secret agents.

Her first novel, Inkchanger, could easily be considered Forgotten Relics #0, and as such, rewards readers of the rest of the series, sort of like watching Thor before The Avengers. Her second novel, Time & Again with Kyeli Smith, has nothing to do with super powers or secret agents but is very cool nonetheless.
