Sergeant Daniels is confident, moody at times, but utterly gorgeous. When Zoe meets him, her life takes an unexpected turn.

Zoe’s never been in love and doesn’t know what it feels like. What she does know is he makes her feel special and beautiful.

Sergeant Daniels has secrets, though, and his evasiveness and closed off attitude, at times, makes Zoe question his love for her.

Has Zoe met the one?

Or, is she in for a future full of heartbreak?

The idea for her debut novel, A Complicated Love came about rather abruptly one night in a dream.

A Contemporary Romance Standalone


They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me.

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life.

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table.

It worked.

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us.

We built our love on a foundation of gray.

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.

JACOB’S LADDER: ELI by Katie Ashley

Coming 26th March

One wouldn’t expect a sexy-as-sin rocker like Eli Renard to spend time with a woman just as a friend, but that’s exactly what Emersyn Wallace is to him. Just a friend. Even though she’s matured into a beauty, Eli still doesn’t remotely see his childhood pal as a sex-object. When tragedy brings her back into his world, Eli moves mountains to help Emersyn get back onto her feet by finding her a job as a backup singer for Jacob’s Ladder. At first, Eli is thrilled that Emerysn is along on tour, and he sets out to do his best to help her forget her sorrow through a range of crazy friend dates. But after spending so much time with her in such close quarters, Eli finds his feelings beginning to shift. He no longer sees Emersyn as the once awkward young girl he played some of his first songs with. Soon it’s not only his body that reacts to her, but it’s also his heart. He’s about to learn what a dangerous game it is to dry a widow’s tears.

After losing her husband and singing partner in a tragic accident, Emersyn Wallace spent the last eight months drowning in a sea of grief. With the bills piling up and her family and friends concerned about her emotional welfare, she reluctantly agrees to join the Jacob’s Ladder’s tour. While recapturing her lost love of singing and performing, she finds both comfort and healing in Eli’s gregarious personality and outrageous sense of humor. But as the anniversary of her husband’s death approaches, she finds herself in turmoil over her new amorous feelings for Eli.

Can Eli and Emersyn find the perfect melody to transition from friends to lovers, or will their relationship end out of tune?

Whiskey Lullaby, an all-new sexy and emotional standalone by Stevie J. Cole is AVAILABLE NOW!


We all have guilty pleasures.

Mine was the boy my father took in. The guy everyone said I was too good for. The one I knew would ruin me.

But I couldn’t help it. The way Noah Greyson’s voice sounded when he sang whiskey lullabies to me in the dark; how perfect his arms felt wrapped around my stomach, his nose nuzzled in my hair- that’s what made me fall. That intimacy was what made me so very weak. But now millions of women drift off to sleep while Noah sings the love story we wrote, and it was never meant for the world.

The worst mistake I made wasn’t loving him, it was thinking he loved me, too.

At least, that’s what I thought until now…

I’ve only read one book by this author and her co-writer, so I was amazed when I discovered that the genre of this standalone is one I really enjoy reading. Whiskey Lullaby’s title I found a tad confusing since I hadn’t read the synopsis which I have to say, was a good move. I love that element of surprise and if you do too, I’d definitely recommend doing the same as me. The pieces slowly started to fall into place with the cover constantly in the back of my mind. Just wow! It’s what dreams are made of! It portrays the male protagonist’s physical appearance as a young man, perfectly. Those jeans, his leather jacket and ooh my, those hands and scruffy beard! A total swoon overload of gorgeousness!

Bad-boy-meets-good-girl and second chance romances are trending a lot these days; thus, for any author to be brave enough to write a novel of this sort, has to be a challenge and a half for them. You see, I never put Noah in the bad-boy category, it is; however, a second chance love story. Even though Noah was a bit of a tearaway as a teenager, had a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude with the girls and trouble found him easily, his general outlook towards life was by no means negative or disrespectful. I had absolutely no trouble connecting with Noah; I understood him. Shame folk in the small town where he grew up seemed to think differently to me. Their stance showed me how hard it is to rid oneself of a bad reputation and how its ripple effect can change one’s future. Thank goodness for his adorable but grumpy grandmother. Her guidance and loving was to my mind, crucial for him to grow into the young man he would become. Blinkin’ heck, did she get a chuckle or two out of me, and I thought I had problems with punctuality!

Hannah is the epitome of a good girl. A studious child, she kept out of trouble despite stressful things happening at home, and always put her family first. In other words, she could do no wrong and was totally selfless. I’m not sure young women like Hannah exist nowadays, but I’d be honoured to meet someone like her if there were. Another detail which caught my attention is we’re used to reading about family conflicts and troubled pasts. This is definitely not Hannah’s case. She might not have agreed with her father on various occasions, but she held him in esteem, and the unconditional love that existed between mother and daughter literally floored me.

Cole’s spun a touching story in such a way that not only was I kept stuck to the pages, but it also brought out all the feelings. Jumping between past and present worked well; nonetheless, there was a point in the story when I felt certain details could have been developed a tad more. Observing how Hannah and Noah changed over the years was a joy to read and their slow burn relationship couldn’t have been narrated any better. Bravo Cole!

Image may contain: one or more people and text



We were friends. Lovers. Soulmates… and very horrible people together.

I wonder, have you forgotten me by now? Have you forgotten the promises we made to each other?

Do you remember the person I became, how I fell for you even though I knew it would kill me to love someone like you? I knew better, Noah. I did. And this letter isn’t to admonish you or tear you down. No, it’s to make you see what you do to the people you say you care so deeply for.

When I was with you, you made me feel safe and loved and wonderful, but in the end, I felt stupid and so vulnerable. I want to believe you never meant to hurt me; that you never meant to make me hate you. I want to believe all the things you said were true, but it’s hard for me. With everything I’ve found out since we didn’t say goodbye, you must understand why I wish I could forget you.

I will forever hate that I was so weak for you, but I was only weak because I loved you. Despite it all.

I’ll always love you.

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.


Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. She’s a seventeen-time New York Times bestseller. Her novels are published in over a dozen languages and can be found in bookstores around the world.

The beauty of this novella, the first part in the Poison Series, is you don’t need to have read the Dirty Money series to get the gist of the story and get this, Part 2 and 3 are just around the corner, so hopefully the author will put me out of my misery seeing as the cliffy left me hanging on a precipice. If Seth Cage was mysterious then, I found him even more interesting this time around. In the espionage business, Jones’ protagonists are on a mission together and not out of choice. It’s a real page-turner taking the reader on a rollercoaster of a ride across the US. In extremely well-described scenes, I felt like I was alongside them and imaging this action-packed story in real life was dead easy. Indeed, the operative word being dead!

I’m glad there’s more from where this came from because unanswered questions, there are plenty! And hopefully we’ll discover if Amanda Skye, aka the Poison Princess and Seth, aka the Assassin’s warnings are threats and not promises. True to the author’s style, her narrative is fast-paced, intrigue abounds and delving into Seth’s innermost thoughts regarding how he felt about the woman who’s holding back on him put me in the picture…but of course, only up to a certain point since he’s a dark horse, too. I can’t wait to read Amanda’s point of view, if she’s true to her feelings or going to take matters into her own hands and that folks, isn’t figuratively speaking, either! Then again, when so much is at stake and believe you me, there is, can the two of them regain what they’d had?  

Told in present tense which I liked a lot and a well-known challenge for any author, my only objection is why this 3 part serial wasn’t published in one book. Having devoured the first part in no time at all, I would have happily carried on reading this sexy non-stop read overflowing with angst till the very end. Apart from this setback, the banter, character development and plot is perfect. Bravo Ms Jones!   

Poison Kisses: Part 2 releases 13th February! 

I loved her. She left me. She betrayed me but now it’s time to open the closed doors. I’ll tell her my secret if she tells me hers. Our history, is more than lies. It’s our story, and I will do whatever it takes to reveal it all. I’m the Assassin, She’s The Poison Princess. We’re going to kill the bad guys, but we’re still deciding if we’re enemies. The one thing for certain, is we’re both going to strip down and get bare.

Poison Kisses: Part 3 releases 20th February! 

Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you. Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be the lie. I don’t want to kill him. I don’t want to leave him. I guess that is why they say there is a fine line between love and hate. I love and hate that man with such passion, that it damn near hurts. But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discover about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it’s time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.

It should have been easy.

I needed the money. He needed a babysitter to keep him from snorting himself to death.

I was cherry-picked especially for him. Responsible. Optimistic. Warm. Innocent.

The worst part is that I should have known better.

Alex Winslow. British rock star. Serial heartbreaker. Casanova with whiskey eyes.

“Don’t get near the devil in a leather jacket. He’ll chew you up and spit you out.”

Sounds familiar? That’s because it was a headline in a tabloid the second time he got arrested.

Guess what? I didn’t listen.

I signed the contract.

World tour. Three months. Four Continents. One hundred shows.

My name is Indigo Bellamy, and I sold my soul to a tattooed god.

Problem was, my soul wasn’t enough for Alex Winslow. He ended up taking my body, too.

Then he took my heart.

Then he took my all.

Shen hasn’t held back and delivered a passionate bittersweet story overflowing with emotions. The male protagonist’s hardwired personality took a little getting used to and to be quite honest, his lack of finesse, his obnoxiousness and sarcasm made me want to jump into the book and give him a good talking to…most of the time! Although I could carry on citing negative adjectives to describe him, I won’t. You see, when a character such as he brings out all those feels, not only does my inquiring mind want to know more about the whys and wherefores, but my curiosity also wanted to know if he had at least one good bone in his body. More important; would I be able to change how I felt about this rockstar with a huge chip on his shoulder.

Despite not being a huge fan of this genre, Alex Winslow Brit to core, (chapeau to the author for pulling off the lingo), mesmerized me. He has just about all the traits I look for in an antihero! His musical talent is indisputable, his hang ups were towards the end of the story, comprehensible! But how he would run rings around the heroine, manipulate her feelings, frustrated the pants of me!

I didn’t like Indie Bellamy. I loved her. This young gal’s naivety screamed off the pages and all I could think of was what the hell had she let herself in for. The world she’d chosen to encroach upon for reasons to be revealed wasn’t hers to be in and although it had a time limit, her sadness for doing what she had to do became mine. While reading, I felt as if she was going to be consumed by people who couldn’t have cared less for her. The question is, was I wrong in my assumptions!

Two opposites are thrown together. They don’t like each other, both of them have to knuckle down and get on with the job neither are happy about. When Indie turns out to be more than Alex could have ever imagined, things take a turn…for the better or worse you may ask yourselves! That folks, is or you to discover. What I can say is I thought their rocky relationship was unmendable, especially when presented with a twist and a half I never saw coming. How they go about it with so much interference from third parties is a story in itself. Narrated in past tense from a dual point of view which in my book, makes for easy reading, the author certainly had me fooled in a story that’s dynamite waiting to be ignited!

In the beginning, I had trouble getting my head around all the names of the band members, the PR, the manager and the entourage per se. Once I’d got everyone in the picture, it was plain sailing. There are moments in this book when I had to come up for air. Crushing scenarios literally did me in. I cried, shouted and my Kindle is only in one piece because no Kindle, no reading lol!  

The author has outdone herself with certain facts, helping me understand how a person’s self-control can be affected by a harsh social issue, and how easy it is to full into its trap again and again. Alex finding inspiration from the least unexpected source, him jotting down his thoughts and songs and where he wrote them, was an absolute joy to read. Outstanding banter, quirky responses and the ending…goodness me, I sobbed like a baby. If it were ever possible, Shen’s writing seems to get better and better, her protagonists’ story is a must read not to be taken lightly. Bravo!
