Author: LP Dover    

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Stars: 4 Really Like It!
Flames Spicy

Wow, this story is a real combustion of emotions! Geez, let me catch my breath and get my emotions under control. We have romantic tragedy that ends in a HAE; Korinne lost her husband from a fatal car accident. Just trying to get through her days and nights her college love enters the story. From there it’s a whirlwind. Korinne tries to pick up the pieces of what’s left of her life but can’t help feeling guilty having feelings for her college love, Galen.  Our love story begins and blooms, but of course things don’t go smoothly. Just when I thought it was going to end we get taken down another path with another twist. L.P. does wrap up this tearjerker so beautifully I had tears rolling out of the corners of my eyes! Holy, crap! If you want an emotion packed read you simply MUST pick up this book!    

I really like Korinne. She didn’t just jump but she didn’t completely shy away either. Even when it was hard she knew she had to finish accepting her grief to really be able to move on.

Galen is the sweetest sexiest man alive to me at the moment. He has a carefree romantic side that’s not afraid to go for it but has a brain to make plans and see them to life.  He brought out a side of Korrine that I didn’t expect and love.

The best part is this book is a on the high side of a spicy read. Keep an eye out for my favorite scene that happens to take place in a car.  ; )  I'll have to find the time to read L.P.'s other books! 

Korinne Anders had it all. She had the perfect job, the perfect house, and the perfect husband. When tragedy strikes, her world takes a devastating turn. Six months after losing her husband to a car accident, Korinne vows it to herself never to love again. If she doesn’t allow another man in her heart, then there’s no reason for her to feel the pain of loss. This plan seems to work, but is put to the test when Korinne’s best friend can’t stand to see her suffering any longer.
Korinne’s long-time friend, Jenna Perry, has an idea and it involves helping her friend find the spark of life in her soul no matter what it takes. Korinne didn’t know that Jenna’s plan meant bringing back a past love, a second chance with the man that Korinne had to leave in college, but always kept a place for in her heart.
When Galen Matthews learns of Korinne’s loss and that she’s finally moved back home, he wants nothing more than to be there for her. The love he felt for Korinne years ago has never left him, and now he’s given a second chance to not only mend her heart of her loss, but to also continue the love they shared in the past. Will his love and determination make her strong enough to give fate a second chance, or will her fear of losing another love make her run away?
What will Korinne do when she’s faced with a love so powerful that no matter what she does there’s nowhere to run from it?

Author Bio:
I am an avid reader that loves my collection of books. Writing has always been a passion of mine and now I am glad that I get to share my passion with the world. I live in North Carolina and I absolutely love being a southern girl. I spent several years in college starting out with a major in Psychology and then switching to dental. I worked in the dental field for eight years and then decided to stay home with my two beautiful girls. I spent the beginning of my reading years reading suspense thrillers, but now I can't get away from the paranormal/fantasy books. I knew ever since then that if I wrote anything it would be in a paranormal aspect. Now that I have started on my passion and began writing, you will not see me go anywhere without a notebook and pen.


With each determined step, I made my way over to the man that was beginning to steal my heart … again. Fear and desire coincided within me, but I couldn’t stop. I knew I shouldn’t let him in, but I couldn’t deny the way my heart was beating for this man. It was as if all of my desires, all of the pent up emotions and feelings in my body had me desperate for this man’s touch, Galen’s touch. The man I fell in love with years ago. His eyes grew wider the closer I got, but I knew I wasn’t going to back down. I needed to feel him in every way possible, and I needed it then. In one swift move I crushed my lips to his and wrapped my arms around his neck, holding him tight. His arms engulfed me, protecting me in his embrace, but also unsure of what to do.

“What are you doing?” he groaned, breaking away from the kiss. “I thought you wanted to take things slow.”

A fire so hot burned behind those pale blue eyes of his, and I knew taking things slow wasn’t going to happen. “I don’t think I can,” I breathed against his lips.

 “Please don’t say that. I don’t think I can control myself if you let me in. I’ve wanted you from the moment I saw you, and it’s already hard enough to keep my distance.”

“I don’t want you to keep your distance.” I sighed. “I need you, Galen, and I need you now.” Those words were all it took for the fire to consume him, to consume us both.

Release Day Blitz by: Roxanne Desired by Gena D Lutz

 Roxanne Desired (Book 2 in the Prime Wolf Series)
by Gena D Lutz   
 Adult Paranormal Romance
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Waking up fur covered and fanged isn't the easiest thing for a girl to deal with. Unfortunately, for Roxanne Delaney, that is her new reality. The only upside is finding herself the bondmate to one hot and sexy werewolf, Nathan Hayes. The downside; learning to adapt to a primal element that craves the rending of flesh and the oh-so-sweet taste of blood. Will this shy waitress-turned-wolf rise to the challenges of this new life—one that is now littered with otherworldly creatures hell-bent on destroying her and the people she cares for? Or will the pressures of a new-found love and difficult battles prove too much for Roxanne to handle?

 I threw the pillow off to the side and jumped out of bed. The small nap that Nathan had forced me to take had done wonders and I was feeling good as new; that was if you didn’t count the headache quickly forming from Paige’s warm-up music. I walked past the handsome hunk of mine and opened the bedroom door wide. I exited the room without explanation. Nathan didn’t complain, just poked his head around the jam, watching my retreat. I stopped in front of the entryway of the room right next door to ours and began to pound my fist hard against it. When my knock received no answer, I brought my fist up and pounded again. This time, the door flew open, revealing an irate she-wolf. Her body was covered in sweat, a large round stain forming from the neck of her wife beater and expanding out and down in between a pair of firmly rounded breasts. She brought her arm up, her hands adorned with boxing gloves, and wiped the sweat from her hairline.

“What the fuck is it?” Paige spat, the rims of her eyes opening wide when she recognized which wolf was at her door. She looked at me with such rage in her eyes that I thought I would spontaneously combust into flames where I stood. I had to stop myself from going pale faced. I willed that from happening with all my might. I wasn’t going to allow this Alpha wolf to have domination over me. I was way too pissed off for that.

“Show the rest of the house some common courtesy by turning that god-awful music of yours down,” I growled.

Paige jerked her chin up and crossed her arms. “And if I don’t?”

Well hell. That was a good question. What could I do if she decided to slam the door right in my face?

“The music is extremely loud, Paige. How about giving us all a break?” Nathan said from behind me.

I hadn’t heard him walk up. I whipped around shoving my finger at him. I was acting like a crazy person. I knew that. However, for some reason I didn’t give two shits about it.

“I have this handled.” I said with a low growl.

“Hi, Nathan.” Paige purred over me. “I will turn the volume down right away.” She pinned him with a smoldering look, a look that made my fingers tingle in want of ripping those green peepers out of their damn sockets.

“But, only because you asked so nicely,” she added before slamming the door in my face.

*WARNING* Opposites is a majorly M/M New Adult novel that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples.

In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.

Lucky for us TM has stopped by today to tell us a little bit about one of the fantastic characters in Opposites. Take it away TM! 

Hello everyone, and thank you Brenda for having me here today! I decided to talk a little about Maeve today, as no one ever wants to talk about her. In my world, the world of Opposites, to be gay or lesbian is the norm. Since part of the story in this world is what happens when someone pushes those limits, there are all forms of relationships squeezed in there. M/M M/F and F/F. I will readily admit that the F/F scenes were the hardest part to write.
What I loved most about Maeve was her fierceness. She is going to stand beside Aiya regardless. Even when Aiya falls in love with a man, Maeve never wavers. Since I decided to give page time to a few of the gay couples as well as the straight couple, I couldn’t very well not give Maeve some time. So the character of Autumn was created. Maeve has a thing for red so Autumns red hair, green eyes and pale skin captivate her attention from the start. There is more to the maid than meets the eye though, but that secret is only shared when you read the book!
Just never forget that Maeve is a fierce warrior, who just happens to like girls. If you mess with her family, friends or Aiya she can and will kick your ass! Her weapon of choice is a 12 foot chain with a steel ball attached to the end, and goddamn she knows how to twirl it.

Naughty Bit:
Autumn stood unbuttoning her dress and dropped it to the floor, swiftly stepping out of it and into the tub. She slowly lowered herself into the water as Maeve moved closer to her, grabbing her legs by the thighs, pulling her onto her lap and wrapping them back around behind her. Maeve ran her fingers up Autumn's spine, to the base of her neck, then twined them through her hair. She fisted a handful and gently jerked Autumns head back, the electricity between the women was intensifying now and Maeve hungrily brought her mouth down on Autumns devouring a long, slow kiss.

Pulling back, she gently tugged at Autumn's bottom lip, then touched her nose to hers.
She reached up and fingered Autumns hair again then moved it behind and off her shoulder, slowly lowering her mouth to her neck. Autumn closed her eyes and a soft moan escaped her lips, Maeve slowly moved up her neck leaving soft kisses in her wake making her way to her ear. She flicked her tongue out and over Autumns ear then inside as she gasped and tensed in her lap, Maeve could feel the heat coming off her body as Autumn began to grind against her stomach. She ran her fingers up twining through her hair then grabbed a handful and gently jerked Autumns head back, the electricity between the women was intensifying now and Maeve hungrily brought her mouth down on Autumns devouring another long, slow kiss.

Maeve was certain she would explode from the heat that was coursing through her body as Autumn lapped up her tongue, moaning and grinding against her. Autumn gasped as Maeve pulled her tongue from her lips and placed her hands on her hips, lifting her gently and setting her on the edge of the tub, Autumns back braced by the wall. She slowly spread Autumns legs, running her hands up both of her thighs and eyeing her sweet, wet sex. Maintaining eye contact she ran her tongue up and down one leg while gently brushing her fingers across the other. Autumn let her head fall back slightly, resting on the wall. She reached down and ran her fingers through Maeve’s dark flowing locks and moaned continually.

I can't wait to dive into this one!
