Blog Tour & Giveaway~Scent Of A Mate



 

Blurb

Mission: Scent a Mate 

Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up. 



Mission: Stake a Claim 

Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate.



Mission: Survive an Alpha

When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan's strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

Excerpt

“Sounds like the perfect date.” She snickered and almost choked on her wine.
“This is why I didn’t want you there. You, Emma, Nicole, and Karla are so going to get caught.”
“We won’t! We won’t. We’ll be super–spy, research ninjas. Quiet, but sexy smart.” She grinned.
“Oh brother,” Ellie groaned.
“Speaking of brothers. Are, um, your brothers going to be there?” What she really wanted to ask was if one particular brother was going to be there. God, she hoped not. The first time she’d seen Aric Wolfe, she’d been a thirteen-year-old with a crush the size of Alaska. One look was all it took, and her poor teenage heart had been in puppy-love for years. And though it’d been a crush for a long time, it had never gone away. In fact, with years, it had grown. She’d tried to date other men and rid herself of the idea that he’d ever look at a non-shifter for more than a friendship, but it was useless. With time, her attraction for him had grown deeper, into something she didn’t want to think too much about or it would make her hyperventilate.
Blue sparkles lit in Ellie’s eyes. “Yes, all my brothers will be there.”
Oh hell. “Then, yeah, I will hide off somewhere and never move a muscle. I promise.”
Ellie’s laughter, filled with unabashed delight, made her smile. “I still don’t understand why you’re so afraid of being around them.”
Yeah well, Jordan knew all about that super smelling-power shifters had. The last thing she wanted was for Aric to know how one glance at his body and those damn sexy muscles got her so turned on she’d likely start a fire. She could probably melt butter on her skin. “I think it’s best to keep my distance. I know your parents weren’t fond of their only daughter hanging with so many humans.”
Ellie shrugged. “It was either send me to regular school, or deal with packs of horny wolves hitting on their baby girl.” She grinned, grabbed her glass of wine, and sipped. “They knew humans don’t have our scenting or go into heat, so they decided to take the chance.”
Jordan drank her own wine, letting the fruity flavor slip and slide over her tongue. “Yeah, but I bet they didn’t think you’d end up bringing home an annoying, fat Latina for your new pet.”
Ellie rolled her eyes. “Who’s the wolf here, you or me?”
Good point. Ellie’s parents had cared for Jordan. A lot more than Jordan herself could ever understand. Even after all those years being so close to them and Ellie, she still couldn’t make any sense of why they done so much when her parents hadn’t cared at all. What was it about them that made them different? And there had to be some resentment in there. They’d practically adopted her.
“Alright. I’ve become like a second daughter since we became friends. That has to be annoying for them. I mean if they wanted more kids, they’d have had more the old fashioned way.”
Jordan found the whole shifter community absolutely fascinating. If it were up to her, she’d be all in their business trying to figure out how the whole animal-human thing worked.
“Why would you say they’d be annoyed by you?” Ellie’s face creased in a frown. “They like you. Heck, they love you more than any of their sons’ previous girlfriends. In fact, they like you more than most family we have. You’ve grown on them.”
Jordan snorted. “Yeah like fungus or a rash.”
“No, not like that. Like an unusual but lovely woman who needs a mate.”
“What?” She spit out the wine she’d had in her mouth. “Who said I needed a mate?”

***Kj's Review***
 Jordan had the hots for Aric, and Ellie is her best friend. She was taken into the Wolfe family as an angry teenager and finally treated well. When she wants to watch a scenting ceremony she gets so much more than she expected. But, along with the good comes the very worst, will Jordan survive it all to be able to live her dreams?
 Another hit for Milly Taiden, she proves just why she is the best at what she does. I adore her shifter books, I melt with the heat they provide. Funny thing is I say I don’t care for erotica, but I love these books with all my heart and soul. So thanks Milly for doing what you do because it makes me forever happy!

~~Kj's Review~~
 Melissa wishes she could trust a man, after all her ex-husband really ruined her view of men. She enjoys playing the field until that one night, she met a man she broke her rules with, and he finds her again. Brett makes her rethink her view of men, and makes her want to say…I trust you.
 I really enjoyed this book, it was very good. I recommend it to those who enjoy romance with steamy sex. L.P. Dover really made this book a hot one, the emotions were dead on and the sexual attraction real to life. A solid 4 star book for me.

Rumor Has It Giveaway Blast


Rumor Has It
Limelight #1
By- Elisabeth Grace
Expected Publication Date- November 2013


All publicity is good publicity, right? Unless you’re recent college grad Ellie Wagner and an embarrassing video of you and your boyfriend goes viral. Every man in your life abandons you, but who knew a one-minute clip of your latest doomed relationship would brand you a slut, prevent you from getting your perfect job, and force you to keep doing the one thing you swore you’d never do again…live with your mother.


But staying with mom and her latest boy-toy (is this husband number four or five?) until your life turns around might not be all bad. Especially when you fall – literally – at the feet of a sexy, green-eyed stranger who offers you freedom and a life of luxury on a gold-rimmed platter.
There’s only one liiittle problem – the man of your dreams is none other than Mason Nash, the latest hip-hop star busting up the music charts. Fame and fortune are his calling cards and he’s vying to steal the show on a new reality TV series that will catapult him into mainstream stardom. Hello spotlight.


The man behind the famous persona is perfect for Ellie in every way, but can she overcome the ugly pitfalls that come with Mason's celebrity status? Or will she be forced to choose between the man she loves and the independent life she longs for? After all, fame and fortune aren’t always what they seem and not all publicity is good publicity…

Published By- The Wild Rose Press


Blurb-

Ethan Tanner, an ambitious and tantalizing journalist, joins her at Thanksgiving for an in-depth look at the promising candidate. But he has an agenda of his own that's not entirely honorable.

Book Links
  

~~Kj's Review~~
 Audrey is a strong, peace loving woman running for public office, Ethan is a tabloid news writer determined to undermine her campaign, together, they go to her home for Thanksgiving. She has been living a promise that she feels she owes, that means hiding the accident and what followed it. The fact that her home town hated her has journalist Ethan frothing at the mouth to find out more…. Will Audrey break and tell him what he wants? Will he break her with the seemingly wonderful scandal he has found? Will they give in to the chemistry between them?
 Audrey’s Promise is a wonderfully written novel that made me cry in places, get mad in others and feel the currents running through the characters at any given time. I recommend this book to others because it is a very good read. My only issue is my imagination wanted to make more of this book…is me only. I could see a whole series around this family for whatever reason. I am not saying a thing negative here, just loved the author’s storytelling capabilities. Thank you Susan Sheehey for letting me read your book to review it, I enjoyed it!

Book Links

***Kj's Review***
 I was immediately in love with this book for no apparent reason, can’t even begin to explain why. I just know this story touched me right down to my soul. Amanda and Beau, May and December, they were just right, no matter what age. Amanda had been pulled to the old Broadway music from the time she was a tiny girl, sang along with songs that were no longer even recognized. Beau was part of the team that created some of that music and he was looking to do it at least one more time. 
 I flat out recommend this book to everyone, I can’t say enough good about it. I cried at the sad parts, laughed at the happy parts, I was in for the ride of my life. I want to thank Susan Sloate for giving me her book to read and review, it was a pleasure. I still cannot stress how awesomely beautiful this story was, I am probably going on a bit much but I want more like this. I give this book 5 stars.
