Excerpt

Gambling on the Bodyguard by Sarah Ballance

Desire rocketed through him, the intentionally slow pace more brutal than any he’d ever known. He shifted, nudging deeper, feeling her leg slide the length of his. She arched against him, baring her neck, and he claimed the spot with his mouth. Fingernails raked his back, but still he held on. He tried not to think about what she was doing to him. What she allowed him to do to her.

Her body enveloped him, all heat and fire, and he held her with everything he had. Kissed her neck. Nibbled her ear. All the while, driving into her, rocking his hips, pistoning longer, slower, deeper. Breaking a sweat, tasting that she’d done the same.
And kissing her. Dear God, the sweet slide of her tongue with his was enough to leave him undone. He explored every crevice, tasted every part of her, swallowed every whimper. Forced himself to take her deeper, pushing against the bed with one knee, gaining traction. Nudging her across the sheets with his desire to consume her, to so thoroughly become a part of her body that he’d be there forever. He knew the moment she came. Knew she hadn’t been thrown off some cliff to flail, to seek purchase from thin air. 

That wouldn’t happen, not this time. He gave her something to hold on to while she trembled. Kissed her. Touched her hair, cupped her face. Held on until his own orgasm took over, stealing his sense of self, leaving him shaking and lost.Lost, with no real desire to be found.
When he went to the bathroom to clean up, he didn’t recognize himself in the mirror. Didn’t recognize what raged inside him.

Didn’t matter. Just went back to the bed and held her, knowing it had to be enough. Knowing damn well it’d never even come close. 

About the book:

He’ll guard her body all night long... 

Ski instructor Ellie Montgomery hits Vegas during a romance convention to meet the man of her 
dreams...only, the man of her dreams isn’t the cover model she’s there to see. He’s the hot­as-
sin bodyguard who catches her sneaking in the back door of a meet­and­greet, and he seems 
more than ready to do what it takes to prove he’s twice the man her pretty boy crush could ever 
be.

Jax Mathis couldn’t resist snagging a date with Ellie, but he didn’t count on the attraction being 
more than physical. They connect on a level he didn’t think possible–and he can’t run fast 
enough. She makes him want things he thought he’d never have, and maybe, just maybe, 
they’re within reach. But to have it, he’ll have to face the one mountain he swore he’d never 
climb...and with no guarantee she’ll be waiting on the other side.

ARC Review of Along Came A Rogue by Anna Harrington



This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it.    Emily and Grey are strong characters and the plot was smooth and well paced.

Grey knew Emily since she was a young girl, being best friends with her brother.   Her brother is wounded and wants to see his sister, so Grey goes to bring her home.  What he finds is a beautiful woman who is hiding secrets and whatever she is hiding  terrifies her.  They are attracted to each other and since she is a widow, there is no obstacles to them becoming lovers.
The sex scenes are hot and they become more and more attached to each other.  He will do anything to protect her, even risk his own life for her.  The mystery of the person who wants her dead is intriguing and the action is edge of your seat reading.
The love story is inspiring and the HAE is awesome.

Received this complimentary copy from the publisher for an honest review.

Virtual Blog Tour for The Hunter by Kerrigan Byrne





They're rebels, scoundrels, and blackguards-dark, dashing men on the wrong side of the law. But for the women who love them, a hint of danger only makes the heart beat faster...
A scandalous proposal.
Christopher Argent lives in the shadows as the empire's most elite assassin. Emotion is something he tossed away years ago, making him one of the most clear-eyed, cold-hearted, wealthiest, and therefore untouchable men in London. But when his latest target turns out to be London's own darling, Millicent LeCour, Christopher's whole world is turned upside down. Overwhelmed by her stunning combination of seduction and innocence, Christopher cannot complete the mission. She has made him feel again. Now, he will do anything to save her life, so that he can claim her as his own...
A perilous passion...
When Millie learns what Christopher was hired to do, she is torn between the fear in her heart and the fire in her soul. Putting herself in this notorious hunter's arms may be her only path to safety-even if doing so could be the deadliest mistake she's ever made. But how can she resist him? As the heat between her and Christopher burns out of control, danger lurks in the shadows. Is their desire worth the risk? Only the enemy knows what fate has in store..

Author Bio:
Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she's finally able to have the career she'd decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to "grow up to be a romance novelist." Whether she's writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.
Her first novel with St. Martin's Press, THE HIGHWAYMAN, is available now and will be followed by THE HUNTER in February of 2016.
She lives at the base of the Rocky Mountains with her handsome husband and three lovely teenage girls, but dreams of settling on the Pacific Coast.
MY REVIEW

The second book in the Victorian Rebel Series was an edge of your seat kind of read.  Christopher Argent was born and grew up in Newgate Prison .  He watched his mother sacrifice her body to the guards so that he could have a blanket or an extra piece of bread.  Until one night one of the cruelest guards let some vile male prisoners into their cell and raped, beat and cut his mother.  He held her dead bojdy and screamed all through the night calling for help that would never come.  That was the night that he lost his soul and vowed vengenance on all that had abused his mother.

Years later he is a assassin for hire.  He will kill anyone for a price and is ruthless.  He thinks of himself as an empty shell, a monster who has nothing and no one to care whether he lives or dies.  He accepts a contract ot kill an actress, he doesn;t know her and could care less why she has to die.  Millicent LeCour is an up and coming actress with a young son who is making her way in the world on her own.  When she first meets Christopher she thinks he is interested in her and there is something about him that fascinates her.  She accepts an inviatation to dance and then he leads her to a dark corner under a staircase to kill her and she thinks he is going to kiss her.  He is shocked to feel drawn to her and kisses her instead of strangling her.

This starts a journey that will test them both.  Millie is strong, determined and very protective of her son. Christopher cannot seem to kill her and makes a bargain to protect her from the person who wants her dead if she will have sex with him.


This book was amazing in so many ways.  Christopher is truly a man shaped by his experiences.  He doesn;t have friends or family and does not know what he is missing because he has never had anyone to care about him since his mother died.  Millie is hiding a secret that could get her and her son killed. This is truly a story about a love for the ages and a redemption of a man who was a victim of unspeakable violence and abuse. You have to read this book.  I admit I cried at the end, but oh was it worth it!!!
