Guest Post and Giveaway by Lisa Renee Jones

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to talk about IF I WERE YOU. Have you read it? Did you like it? I would enjoy hearing your thoughts. And if you haven’t read it -- I hope I can entice you today with a sexy excerpt and a little about the story!

First, a little about the story behind the story. This is a story that was inspired when my DH use to buy and sell storage units long before the television shows. He found a journal and couldn’t stop reading. He insisted I had to write a story with a journal found in a storage unit as the focus. I resisted but over time he wore me down and the story and characters began to slowly nag me as much as he did to get to writing!:)

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the book. Just comment and tell me your thoughts for your chance to win a $10 gift card to the retailer of your choice and a Yankee candle!

Also want to win $200? I have a cool announcement and contest!

If you haven’t heard yet to celebrate the release of IF I WERE YOU I’ve partnered with Tokii the first ever self-help relationship management platform, specifically designed to deepen and strengthen all types of relationships—to create an interactive game based on her sexy novel. The game will allow couples to discover each other’s innermost desires and fantasies in a fun new way! Lisa will also be giving away a $200 Amazon gift card via THE GAME at the Tokii website.


Rounding the corner, I enter the hallway, and Chris is suddenly there in the narrow passage with me, pressing me against the wall, his powerful thighs framing mine.

My hand goes instinctively to his t-shirt-clad chest. I am immediately aware of the intimacy of the touch, of my body’s reaction to the man who has betrayed me. “Don’t shove me against another wall and try to intimidate me, Chris.”

“I’m not trying to intimidate you. I was protecting you, Sara.” His hands move to my waist, scorching me, and my reaction to the sizzling touch is instant. I cover his hands with mine, trying to control what he does next, but it doesn’t help. Now, my hands are on his hands and his hands are on my body.

“Call it what you want,” I ground out, “but you had no right to do what you did.”

“He had to know he couldn’t manipulate your dream. Money, and my many resources at your disposal, does that.”

His words knock my anger and my breath away, and confusion consumes me. His actions and his words conflict at every turn. “Why would you help me? You said I don’t belong in this world.”

“Because I won’t watch him gobble you up and destroy you.”

I remember his words, and understand now that he wanted me out of this gallery, not this profession. “Because he’s a dark, messed up, arrogant asshole who will play with my mind and use me until there is nothing else left of me I recognize.”

“That’s right.”

“And yet you say you’re worse.”

He stiffens and cuts his gaze, seeming to struggle before fixing me in a turbulent stare. “I am, Sara, which is why you should run as far away from me as you can. And I should step back and let you.”

“Then why aren’t you?” I whisper.

His eyes hold mine, and what I see there, the depth of his desire, overwhelms me. He flattens his palm on my belly and I tremble beneath the touch, and he has to feel it too. “Because,” his voice low, seductive, his hand traveling up the center of my body, “I can’t stop thinking about you, and everything I want to do to you, everywhere I want to touch you.”

His hand presses to the swell between my breasts, and my nipples ache with a wish he would touch them. His boldness ignites something sultry and dark inside me, a side of me that defies the good-girl school teacher who is appalled I haven’t stopped this. I want him. I want him here and now, and any way I can have him.

And when his gaze lowers to my mouth and lingers, I know he is thinking about kissing me and I have never wanted to be kissed so badly in my life.

“Do you taste as good as I think you do?” he asks, but he doesn’t wait for my reply.

Suddenly, his fingers have tunneled into my hair and he’s dragging my mouth to his. I am all soft submission, yielding to the moment, to the man. I melt into him, welcome the hardness of his body pressed to mine. And when his tongue presses past my lips, a long, wicked caress, I taste his hunger, his need. There is possessiveness to his kiss, to his hand on my back, molding me closer. I am lost in the ache that has become my need for this man, this stranger I cannot resist. He says he’s protecting me; he says he’s dangerous. I am conflicted, and sure I should be angry with him, but I am completely incapable and unable of processing why.

About the book...

He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.


…. I was enthralled from the moment I picked up the book.

….I devoured this book

….I loved it, loved it, loved it!!! I can’t wait for the next book to come out!!! Two thumbs up!!

8. Wicked Werewolf Night by Lisa Renee Jones

Buy here
A witch after his secret. A wolf after her pleasure.
Nico Moore is the leader of of The Werewolf Society’s elite Royal Guard. Aylia Richardson is the witch who calls to the beast in Nico, but destiny has also made her the keeper of a gift that threatens the very existence of his race. To destroy this gift will destroy this woman…the only one he has ever dared to call ‘mate’.

I absolutely loved this story. After reading about Nico and Aylia in Lisa's Hot Vampire series I am so glad that she wrote their story. What really got me about this story was that thought they didn't mate in the traditional sense that werewolf's do they were mates none the less. Loved seeing all the old familiar characters and even though these stories are short they are action packed sexy little bites of romance with alpha males to die for and heroines that have you rooting for them all the way. I am giving this one 5 stars and I don't usually do shorts that way but this one is just that good.
Go forth and buy this. It's a lovely story for only $.99 and if your a prime member of amazon the way I am you can read this for free. But either way run go get this one for yourself. I was lucky enough to have the author send me an ecopy for review with no strings attached. All I can say is Lisa you must write faster. I need the next book. lol. Up next is my review for Kole. yummy

Wanna Win Shiloh Walker's next great book

Check out Shiloh's latest project...Blade Song. Enter to win a galley to review...and she's giving away 50!
You can enter via her blog. You can tweet about it. And if you post about it to your blog, you get a couple of extra entries...
Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.
So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.
Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.
If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

7. Review: Dangerous Secrets by Lisa Renee Jones

Buy here for $2.99 right now

Product Description
The Walker Brothers...

Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.

Dangerous Secrets --- Luke and Julie's story!

Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn't all it's cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn't last, and she's sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he's always wanted and couldn't have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie's clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex wife ends up dead. Julie's next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find ... the end?


Her hand went to his wrist and heat darted up his arm, but it was the vulnerable, insecure look on her face that undid him. She didn't think he wanted her. Despite his attention, despite the kisses that would, and should have, set off a five-alarm blaze, she didn't know.

He slid his hand to her neck. "I only want one woman and that's you."

"Then act like it, Luke," she said, "because you're confusing me and I don't know what you want. I--"

He covered her mouth with his and for the first time since his return, he let her taste his desire, let her feel the hunger inside him that no one had sated since her. His hand slid over the sexy curve of her hip to the dip of her tiny waist.

Her arms wrapped around his neck, and she molded herself to his body. She was no longer vulnerable or timid. She was the seductress she could be, the seductress he knew had just lured him to the very place he'd sworn he wouldn't go. To the land of lust and forgetfulness where she ruled, where sex was a weapon, and a wall of separation grew despite the absence of clothing.

I want me a Seal or in this case an ex-Seal. Luke is definitely a sexy alpha hero and I want me one. He is so protective maybe a little overprotective and that is not good for Julie with her issues. Though this book can defintely stand on its own it left a few major issues unresolved and I am so hoping that the next brother's book will take care of that.  This book has it all romance, sex, suspense, sex, drama, and did I mention hot sex plus some truly scuzzy bad guys. If you love books with seals, sex, or suspense this series is a must read for you. And btw this book though it was part of a series it reads very well as a standalone.

Lisa sent me a digital copy of this book with the only requirement that I post an honest review. I give this book a 4 1/2 stars and am looking forward to the other two in this series.

6. Review: Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston

Click here to purchase
Product Description

He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by own his game. . .

Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But once someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's lone-bear world upside down--and bringing his passion out of hibernation. . .

As a member of an elite feline protection unit, Marcella Malone has no problem body-dropping anyone who hunts her kind. But Crush is proving one major pain in her gorgeous tail. The only reason she's joined forces with him is to track down the wealthy human who's got her entire species in his ruthless sights. It sure isn't because Crush's stubborn and contrary attitude is rubbing Cella in all the right ways. . .

Let me just start by saying Jello Shots and bears don't mix well. Roflmfao at the opening scene of this book had my hubby looking at me like I had lost it. It wasn't the first time he's done that when I'm reading one of Shelly's books and probably won't be the last. I want a bear like Crush.  A bad ass bike man bear who is honest as the day is long. He is totally nice guy and well let's just say that the same can't be said for Marcella "Bare Kuckles" Malone. She's totally my kind of heroine. She doesn't take no crap from anyone and loves to mess with folks. I really like that about her. We didn't learn much about the bad guy in this book except that he's a smart, ruthless, full-human that likes to hunt and stuff shifters. Not good at all and even though they didn't get him this time I am hopeful that the next book will take care of him. What I like this series is that each book is about a different couple but that you also get caught up with the others in this series in each book. Don't know about you but I seriously want Hannah's book but may have to wait since she's young by any standards.
I bought this book for my reading pleasure and what a pleasure it was. I give it 5 stars.

5. Review: Oracle's Moon by Thea Harrison

Click here to purchase

Oracle’s Moon

As a second daughter, Grace Andreas never had to worry about the intrigues of the Elder Races. But when her sister, Petra, and Petra’s husband are both killed, Grace inherits the Power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister’s two young children – neither of which she is prepared for.

Yet, she is not alone. Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid – driven by his genuine caring for the children – has decided to make himself a part of the household both as their guardian and as an exasperating counterpoint to Grace’s impudence toward the Elder Races.

But when an attempt is made on Grace’s life, she realizes that Khalil is the only one who can protect her – and offer her more than a mortal man…

I loved Grace in this book. She is a very strong individual. Even though she knew there was a possibility of her becoming the Oracle she definitely didn't expect it since her older sister wasn't much older that her and inherited those powers. But when her sister died become the Oracle she did and she also gladly took on the responsibility of raising her young niece and nephew without much support financial or otherwise. And when Khalil enters her live she is not overly impressed with him nor is he with her. But as these get to know each other and Khalil especially goes about figuring out how to interact with humans especially little manipulative ones like Grace's niece they finally come to an understanding.  I love the way Khalil gets Grace the financial wherewithal to support herself and the kiddos that she needs all the while proving that she can depend on him.. what we learned about the Oracle's powers in the last book helps us understand how Grace takes the Oracle's power in a wholly different way and I suspect this will be useful to the Elder Races in the coming books more than we can tell right now. Her special twist on those powers was a little convenient to the story but loved it non the less. At least she didn't go around saying I see dead people lol.

I bought this book for my personal enjoyment and I give it a 4.5 stars. If you've not read this series what are you waiting on run to the nearest book store. These books are one the best series I discovered last year.

4. Review Archangel's Blade by Nalini Singh

From the Back Cover

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh is back in the shadows of a deadly, beautiful world where angels rule, vampires serve, and one female hunter must crawl out of the darkness to survive...

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand, and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting...and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more...
This book is in the same world as Elena and Raphael but Dimitri is no Raphael. He's a very dangerous man and Honor has been through at lot but man when she starts taking care of herself and living her life. She takes on the biggest bad around. I love the way she stood up to Dimitri and wouldn't take any of his crap. After you figure out what is going on you realize that they are perfect for each other no matter the age difference. I am glad we get to see more of this world that just Raphael and Elena's story. And we also see where Dimitri and Raphael met. Love these tidbits. I hope Ms Singh continues this trend. I wouldn't mind seeing books about most of the angels we met so far. I bought this book myself for my own personal pleasure and give it a solid 4 stars.

3. Review Serpent's Kiss by Thea Harrison

Recently, Vampire Queen Carling's power has become erratic, forcing her followers to flee. Wyr sentinel Rune is drawn to the ailing Queen and decides to help find a cure for the serpent's kiss-the vampyric disease that's killing her. With their desire for each other escalating they will have to rely on each other if they have any hope of surviving the serpent's kiss...

I love Thea Harrison's books and this one was no exception. I love that Rune is a griffin but was somewhat disappointed in not learning more about that race which she didn't explore as she did the vampire race. And for Carling to be so powerful and ancient it seemed that she gave up through most of this book. But with Rune as her cheerleader she got better. And why wouldn't she Rune sounds like an extremely hunky fellow. I still don't see how someone as intelligent and powerful as she was could let that nuthead do what they did. Go read this for yourself and you shall see what I am talking about.  And in this one we got glimpses of the whole gang from previous books which is always fun.  All and this one was a good solid read but not quite as enjoyable as the first two and the excerpt from the next one has me salivating over it. I want it like now.

I bought this one for my personal use and I give it  3 1/2 stars.

2. Review: Storm's Heart by Thea Harrison

  Thea Harrison

Storm's Heart

Product Description

He’s a wyr warrior, a god of storms. She’s the heir to the Dark Fae throne. But desire will bring both to their knees in this all-new Novel of the Elder Races.
During the rule of her murderous Dark Fae uncle, Thistle “Tricks” Periwinkle found sanctuary among the wyr in New York. Her ethereal beauty and sparkling personality won the hearts of the public, but after her uncle’s death, there are those who don’t want to see her ascend to the throne…
Able to wield thunder and lightning, wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the wyr’s best weapons. And he’s sent to protect Tricks when she’s almost assassinated in Chicago.
Soon, both Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them—a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds…
I thought Ms. Harrison's first book Dragon Bound was fantastic but to me this one was better. I love the hero in this one. Can you say tortured hero. He rocks and the way he treats Tricks is fantastic. And I really liked her. Even though she was younger than him she didn't take any of his crap. And she really comes into her own in this book. I love the way this book ended and can't wait to read the third and fourth and any more she writes in this series.
I give this one 5 stars and I bought this one myself. If you haven't read this series please do. You won't be disappointed.

1. Review Thea Harrison's Dragon Bound

  Thea Harrison
Buy New $7.99

Temper is Not Easily Extinguished

Half-human and half-wyr, Pia Giovanni spent her life keeping a low profile among the wyrkind and avoiding the continuing conflict between them and their Dark Fae enemies. But after being blackmailed into stealing a coin from the hoard of a dragon, Pia finds herself targeted by one of the most powerful–and passionate—of the Elder Races.
As the most feared and respected of the wyrkind, Dragos Cuelebre cannot believe someone had the audacity to steal from him, much less succeed. And when he catches the thief, Dragos spares her life, claiming her as his own to further explore the desire they’ve ignited in one another.

I was late to these books but I love them. This one in particular I really liked cause I love dragon shifters and Dragos is the top shifter of the bunch.  Pia was tough heroine. And the cast of character in Ms. Harrison's books were fantastic. I wanted to join this and meet these characters in person. I really lost myself in this world. I wasted no time in purchasing the second one in this series and that is not my usually mo. Most times I can wait but this is one of those series where you have to devour these books as soon as they are available. I have the third one now and its near the top of my tbr pile.

I give this one 5 stars and I bought it myself and my opinion in my own. Run go buy this series. If you love dragons or any other type of paranormal creature then you need to read this series.
