“In Iraq, I promised you a bed of rose petals.” He grabbed my hand under the table, tightening his grip as if he were falling from a precipice and our connection was the only thing saving him from certain death.

“They were beautiful.”

“You smell like apples. Roses were wrong.” There was nothing soft about his tone, but his quiet words were for me alone. “I want everything to be right for you.”

“Caden, look at me.”

I caught his gaze and held it. He was confident. Arrogant. Sure he had a place in the world. And under that was the man who needed me to be that place.

“If I could…” He smiled and shook his head at a silly thought he wanted to dismiss but couldn’t—a contradiction in keeping with the whole man I married. “If I could write my love in the sky, it wouldn’t be big enough. I’d run out of room. I’d fall out of the air trying to say it all.”

He was saying it all.

Every day.

And he was falling out of the sky to do it.

Blurb

 
Maddy has only one decision left to make after the final bruise—leave him.

And she’s doing it. She’s finally free.

Her own home. Own life. Own Decisions.

There’s no-one to answer to anymore.

But when her job as an antiques moderator leads her to the mysterious Blandenhyme estate and the intriguing Mr Caldwell, that freedom begins to turn into an unconventional love lost in shadows and fog.

And as chilling voices whisper words to cloud her judgement, and dangerous liaisons bring terror and dread to the fore, she finds herself struggling to survive Blandemhyne’s sinister misgivings regardless of its beauty.

They say the dead never sleep, that they stalk this earth until retribution is served.

That time has come.

 
Standalone. Dark Romance. Spiralling. Thriller.

/ ARC Book Review / Dangerous Control (Dark Dominance, #3) / Annabel Joseph / Blog tour /

Not all fantasies are safe, sane, and consensual. Welcome to the world of The Gallery…
Milo Fierro lives for two things, dominance and music. At The Gallery, where depravity rules, he’s known for his passionate desires, but on the outside, he’s learned to hide beneath a veneer of dark-eyed professionalism. It’s too dangerous to be himself. Most women don’t understand.

Alice definitely doesn’t understand. Her father was his violin teacher for years, and now that she and Milo are adults, she thinks they can be friends. The girl he knew as “Lala” draws him in with her grace and kindness, unaware of his ugly, hidden side. He can’t touch her, or even stand near her. He doesn’t dare reach out to her, no matter how much her talent and beauty inflames his lusts. She deserves better, deserves a man who’s nothing like him…

If only she wasn’t so impossible to resist.

Synopsis
The agents of the renowned Investigative Collection Unit have to be the biggest, baddest, and brightest to take on missions no one else would dare. It doesn’t hurt that they’re also the sexiest. But in a shadowy world where reality means living on the razor’s edge of deception, few survive with their hearts intact . . .  

ICU intel expert Monty Buchannan’s idea of fun is creating software—not roughing it in a cabin off the grid in Alaska. But his team forced him to unplug when his intense need to be in control put a mission at risk. Being alone isn’t a problem; most people make him uncomfortable. But there’s

something about the woman he finds floundering in a frozen stream that warms his ice-cold heart . . .

Taylor Moore was once a spoiled socialite famous for her tabloid-worthy exploits until she broke out from under wealthy father’s thumb. Now she’s the self-made CEO of an online matchmaking service—and on the run from Russian mobsters who’ve hijacked her website. But when she’s suddenly plucked from a river by a half-naked mountain man, trust will become a matter of survival. And desire just might break down the defences that have kept them both playing it far too safe for far too long . . .

/ ARC Book Review / Ruthless (Sins of Seven #4) / Dani René / Blog Tour /

I’m an asshole.

And I make no apologies for it.

My life has been spent drenched in the blood of my enemies.

Our family legacy, left only to me when my brother walked away.

Women are pawns in a game for pleasure. Nothing more.

Until her. Madison Parker.

I’m enthralled. Captivated.

But my past is far too dark.

Pushing her away is my only option.

Yet her stubborn, sassy mouth and beautiful eyes weaken me.

I save her as much as she saves me.

Then blood is spilled once more, and I’ll forever live with the guilt.

Can light find its way through my darkness?

Can she truly be the salvation for this ruthless heart?
