Shout out to February ALBTALBS Sponsors!

Hi friends! I don’t talk about it much, but there are costs to running a blog, and I try to offset the monetary loss by offering advertising spots! It’s not something I do aggressively, but I’m always happy to have sponsors. I’ve also taken to highlighting them because well, it’s a win-win, right? Recently I also had someone who bought ad spots as gifts for friends, and I thought that was super cool too. Just something for you to keep in mind. 😉
And who doesn’t like to hear more about books?

Some secrets just can’t be kept.

Dr. Kayla Wright has lived on the outside of Star Canyon’s social circles for years, unlike her vivacious sister, Jenny—yet Kayla’s always been drawn to handsome and sexy Romero Dark. But Kayla knows that her attraction to Romero can never mean anything, not with her reputation in Star Canyon—and especially not with her knowing an explosive secret about the Dark family’s father, the beloved Captain Dark, who died mysteriously in a warehouse fire the year prior.

But when the passion between Kayla and Romero bursts into flame, Kayla knows she’s done the unthinkable. She can’t stop herself from being near Romero, yet she knows it’s not possible for her to devote herself to him under these circumstances. Will Kayla stay quiet about Captain Dark, or risk losing Romero’s love forever when she tells him the real story about a night Star Canyon has never forgotten?

The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall.
Balvan, the Refuge’s Gatekeeper, is huge, green, and has a reputation for crushing skulls. He’s a modified humanoid, genetically designed to be the ultimate warrior. One of a kind and considered monstrous by many, he never expects to find his mate, the one female meant for him.

Elyce, snatched from her home half a solar cycle ago, has finally escaped her brutal captors. She arrives at the Refuge barely alive. Only a blood transfusion from the largest male she has ever seen will save her life. But it will also bind her to him forever. Staring up, up, up at him, she wonders why she wants to be free. His gentle touch revives yearnings she thought dead. His lips set her skin ablaze. His massive muscles make her feel safe.

That feeling could be an illusion. Elyce’s captors want their slave back and they won’t stop until they have her. To give his mate her freedom, Balvan might be forced to give up everything he has – his role as the Gatekeeper, Elyce’s love, and his life.

Some love can last a lifetime-their love was destined to last longer. Angel’s first words to Kel were I’m going to marry you.

She was seven at the time. He was eight. And he didn’t laugh when she spoke the words. Best friends as children, lovers as young adults, they had an unexplainable bond. Their future looked set. Until the night they were attacked by a creature that couldn’t exist.

Angel survived the attack-barely. But Kel didn’t. Or at least, nobody thought he did. His body was never found and Angel’s life would never be the same. The attack might not have killed Kel’s body, but it sure as hell killed his heart.

Twelve years later, there’s one part of his former life that he can’t move past. Angel. He can’t let her go, but he can’t have her either. She doesn’t even realize he is still alive. But when a threat surfaces, Kel’s willing to do whatever it takes to protect Angel. Even if it drives them both to the edge of insanity and back.

Warning: Some violence. Some sex. Some bloody violence. Even a little bit of bloody sex. Not all of the sex is between the hero and the heroine, even though every time that happens, the hero closes his eyes and thinks of England…er, Angel. Not exactly a traditional romance, but I promise it does end with an HEA.

The debut book that contest judges cannot put down! Finalist for 2016 Book Buyers Best Award, The Maggie Award for Excellence and The Carolyn Readers Choice Award.

Kit Foster thought a week in the woods would be the perfect way to recover from the family scandal that shattered her world. No reporters, no gossip and no drama. Then a helicopter dumps an injured man in her path.
Mick Harris is having a bad day. It was bad enough that he botched an op, but then he awakes beaten and left for dead in the middle of a forest. He is lucky to be alive, but now he is at the mercy of Kit- the only person who knows the route home.
During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction. While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.
However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness. Can a second chance bring them back together?

Holidays are best spent with the ones you love, especially when adventure is in the offing.

It’s the Christmastide season, and the Hawkins family is at their country estate in Kent. Emmaline, the Countess of Archewyne, is excited, for it’s her first Christmas with her little family as well as one of the few she’s spent in England.

Passing his leisure time with his loved ones gives Miles Lawrence Hawkins, the fifth Earl of Archewyne, great pleasure, as does anticipating their faces when they open his gifts. And he’s found the most splendid thing for his wife—a fresh archeological dig of ancient Roman origin on his property.

When plans for Christmas Eve preparations go awry and Miles is taken hostage at gunpoint, Emmaline is at her wit’s end. Heartsick and worried, only a clue from some overly affectionate geese will be able to save her beloved’s life. If she can reach him in time, they’ll both find themselves beguiled on a Christmas morning.
