New Release: No White Knight by Angel Payne & Victoria Blue

The quest…The fight…The fall…

No White Knight (Secrets of Stone Book 8) 

by USA Today bestselling author Angel Payne & Victoria BlueRelease Date:  16th OctoberGenre: Contemporary Romance Goodreads

Synopsis
The quest… I’m Maclain Stone, and Taylor Mathews is my obsession, my reason to be a better human. Is that even possible? For her, I’ll try. Years of living in the fast lane—literally and figuratively—are catching up with me, as I fight to shift gears and win the right to commit to this incredible woman who has tumbled into my life.
The fight… I’m ready for change, but is she? So far, she’s rejected every offer I’ve made and shut every door in my face. If she can’t admit her feelings to herself, how can she commit to me?  The fall… She’s so close to showing me everything she is. I can feel her need in the fire of her touch, taste it in the connection of our kisses, and glimpse her surrender in the intensity of our passion. Yet I want more. But I can’t be her white knight until she admits she needs saving.
**Can this be read as a standalone? 
The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the instalments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.

New Release

We would date and act like a real couple, all in the name of research. And when the thirty days were up, we would go back to being just friends.

Title: All The Right Moves
Author: Becca Taylor
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2018

Being called the worst boyfriend can do a number on a man’s ego. 

 

But I handled it the way any full-grown adult male would—by eating copious amounts of carbs and wallowing over whether I was good enough.

 

I admit, it wasn’t the best of moments, but it made me realize I needed answers to the question, what are women looking for inside and out of the bedroom?
After I researched the subject, I compiled my data into a solution.
Thirty days. 

Thirty right moves.
But I needed to test out my newfound theories, and my best friend, Tenley, was going to help. 

 

It was a foolproof plan. 
We would date and act like a real couple, all in the name of research. And when the thirty days were up, we would go back to being just friends. 

Piece of cake, right?
Only, I forgot to take into consideration the multiple outcomes. Specifically, the one where it left me wanting more and refusing to go back to what we were… ever again.

One night, a dream turned into an idea. An idea turned into a chapter. A chapter turned into a novel and a new adventure began.

Reds Reviews and Recommendations

A few recommendations from the books I’ve reviewed recently.

I have been a reading and reviewing queen lately. Even taking the time to go back and make sure I have reviewed on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub. I found a few I flat-out forgot to review. Here are a few recommendations from the books I’ve reviewed recently. These reviews are by The Redhead.

*Due to the adult content in these books they are for 18+ readers only.


KickKick by Ali Dean
Amazon https://amzn.to/2QM2YHi

Kick and Jack stole my heart. Ali Dean writes a sexy story about Kick the wild college girl trying to figure out what she wants with her life and Jack who is more down to earth than most up and coming rock stars. It works. Jacks devotion to Kick made my heart swell up with happiness. So often you read a rock star book and it’s all about the hook up with groupies. I loved that Jack is not like that. The controversy in this book was difficult to read about but was an honest representation of how it could happen. I respect how the author did not turn Kick in a victim who couldn’t overcome her emotional battle.
Jack and Kick are an amazing couple. When a book leaves me wanting to know how a couple’s story will continue you know they hooked you.


 

Delicious: A Sexy Foodie RomanceDelicious: A Sexy Foodie Romance by Marci Belle

Amazon https://amzn.to/2RJ6h35

2 of my favorite things, food and sex. OK 3, hot man! Marci Belle starts eases us into the mind of Evie the food critic. How she meets the one man she should have never met, let a lone fall for. Reading this story kept me looking for more about each of these main characters. Great quick read and definitely left me wanting to see what else this author has for me in the future.


 

Ménage à MoiMénage à Moi by James Crow

Amazon https://amzn.to/2A4WAW7

Story within a story within a HOT STORY

James Crow has succeeded in writing the modern woman’s dirty fantasies. Jamie is like many erotica readers that devour books then seek relief. Sometimes not even waiting for the end. Then she makes sure to go back to the sexy parts as needed for her pleasure. Who would ever think that her fantasies could become realities? It’s too far-fetched to happen right?


Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle Book 11)Shot on Goal: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport

Amazon https://amzn.to/2ISUxqE

Nothing stops love

This story warmed my heart.  A relationship that should never happen can’t be stopped when sparks fly between Drew and Marina. Their story kept me turning the pages looking for the HEA I love. If you love Sports Rom you have to read Jami Davenport’s books! Hockey and Football players to drool over.


Pillow TalkPillow Talk by Luke Prescott

Amazon https://amzn.to/2IQtHzM

Loved it! I liked how the story unfolded and became intertwined in such a way I didn’t want to stop. I needed to find out what happens next.
I’ve recently become obsessed with male authors. I guess it’s hearing how their brains process the things we women see and feel into their words. Luke does an amazing job with his words.
Can you imagine being paid to seduce a man just to find out his business secrets? Brooke is a girl I would love to sit down with and listen to all of those secrets.

Red’s Author Chit Chat with Marsha Black

I love gaining new fans and being able to talk and interact with them.

Hi Marsha, Thank you for stopping in so we can get to know you better. You said your genre is more Young Adult but that your anthology stories might not be suitable for the average YA reader. Maybe for a more mature audience. That is great to know. Congratulations on your first book, The Triplet’s Curse – Hope’s Story: Book One. I can’t wait for you to tell us more about you and your books. 

1) Do you have a favorite character from The Triplet’s Curse?

Marsha: I really enjoy Hope. She reminds me of how I was when I was a teenager and I had so much fun writing her story.

Red: How interesting to get a peek into your teen years while reading this book. 

2) What is your favorite part of being a published author?

Marsha: I love gaining new fans and being able to talk and interact with them.

Red: Fangirling is a real thing. Trust me, just doing this interview with you I have to control myself. Authors are superstars in out world. 

3) Where is the strangest place you had a book or character idea come to you?

Marsha: I had a series idea come to me on the way to the dentist, lol. I thought that was quite funny.

Red: I ask this question of each author and I have to say that this a first for the idea box. 

4) I am sure you don’t sit with a timer but if you had to guess how long does it take for you to write a book? 

Marsha: This completely varies, I work full-time, taking online college courses and have a toddler, so with the help of my boyfriend I get writing done, but it’s not every day and not always a lot at a time.

Red: Sounds like me when I am trying to clean house. Writing is much more fun than cleaning up after a toddler. 

5) Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?

Marsha: I do read them. Thankfully I’ve only had good reviews, but I wouldn’t mind bad as long as there’s a reason why. I don’t see the point in giving a book one or two stars, but not explaining or contacting me about what you didn’t like about the book. I want to make my book an enjoyable read, and I can’t do that if I don’t know where mistakes are being made.

Red: Very well said. The star rating system is severely flawed in my opinion. Here at The Redhead’s Book Blog we don’t use stars. The written content in a review is what is important in determining the opinion of the reviewer. Ok, I am off my soapbox now. As you can see this is something I have put a lot of thought into. 

6) What do you do when you suffer from writer’s block?

Marsha: I have thankfully not had to suffer through writer’s block as of yet.

7) Which of your books do you wish more readers were aware of?

Marsha: I currently have The Triplet’s Curse – Hope’s Story released. A novella in Dark Waters: A Mermaid Anthology and The Triplet’s Curse – Destiny’s Story(Book Two) rereleased Aug 2018.

Red: You have been busy. 

8) Did you have a mentor when you started?

Marsha: I did not. I was a reader and participated in Facebook events before starting back writing.

9) What advice would you give an aspiring author?

Marsha: Go for it. It can be scary and nerve-wracking. You may worry about if anyone might like your story or not. The best thing I can say is…do it for you. There will be people who like it and people who don’t. If you enjoy writing the story and it’s something that you would read, then more power to you. Have faith in yourself. Even if you’re book isn’t well liked, you accomplished a goal in writing a book, and there are people out there who would be willing to help make it better by working with you on it. So never despair.

Red: That is awesome advice. I had some tell me to carry a notepad and if I felt like writing a few sentences to do it. It’s fun to go back a look at those little bits from months ago. 

10) What can we expect from you in the future?

42 & Beyond: A Space Opera Anthology is available for preorder and is releasing Oct 12, 2018. I’ll be working on the 3rd book of the trilogy. Fingers crossed I’ll get it released by the end of the year. I do have about 4 or 5 other anthologies I’ll be part of this year, all of varying genres and story lines. I have a YA Fantasy stand alone I will be working on as well as a series I’m hoping to start next year.

11) Anything Else

About Marsha Black

Mother of 2, avid reader, lover of anything and everything paranormal/supernatural. Enjoys reading, watching TV, and hanging out with her kids. Hopes that through her written books, readers can escape from reality, as many books did for her. Writes clean YA/NA, with some toe-dipping in other genres. Loves reading reviews and interacting with new readers/fans, so don’t be afraid to befriend and/or get in touch with her.

The anthologies I am part of, even my stories may not be acceptable for teens, so make sure to check the ratings of anthologies if looking to get them for teens.

Adults, I prefer writing clean YA/NA. I can write make-out scenes as far as anthologies or possible co-writings may go.

Please keep these in mind going forward, since I don’t want any of my fans blind-sided by a descriptive make-out session within a story or anthology the is not rated PG-13 or below.

 

 

Reds Reviews and Recommendations

A few recommendations from the books I’ve reviewed recently.

I have been a reading and reviewing queen lately. Even taking the time to go back and make sure I have reviewed on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub. I found a few I flat out forgot to review. Here are a few recommendations from the books I’ve reviewed recently.

Angel Of MineAngel Of Mine by Zane Michaelson

Pre-order Amazon Link getbook.at/ZMAngl

This story is a new writing path for Zane Michaelson. All of his previous series and now this standalone book, have something new and original for the reader. No set theme or mold to fit into, just the telling of a story that flows from his mind to paper.

Angel of Mine made my heart flutter with sadness and joy. A deep story of love and total commitment. It isn’t full of physical love the way some of this authors previous books have been but it is no less romantic. It is full of pure love. Zane Michaelson slowly discloses Gabriella and Angelo story and reached inside my heart. I found myself tearing up in one chapter only to be smiling with the next. I am looking forward to reading it again. I have a feeling the words will take on a different meaning after reading the ending.

Side Note:
The only similarity I have found in Zane Michaelson’s books are the little twists that take you away from the direction you think the book will go. He has a creativity with his stories that keeps you on your toes. I am looking forward to Zane Michaelson’s next book journey not know where it will take his readers.


Destination WeddingDestination Wedding by Lily Ryan

Amazon Link https://amzn.to/2pgHqXv

This short read is the perfect bedtime book. Lily Ryan did an amazing job drawing me into this story and throwing some super hot and sexy scenes to keep me squirming while turning the pages. I can’t wait to read more by this author.


51+XIDuBMqL._SY346_His Weekend Wife by Rhonda Lee Carver

Amazon Link mybook.to/KntBro2

I reread this story after seeing the new cover Rhonda Lee Carver introduced recently. I forgot how much I loved this story. It’s a second chance at love which isn’t uncommon but Rhonda’s details as to why and how  they are getting this second chance just flowed perfectly to make this an amazing read.
Ash is a simple girl who just wants to love the man. Not his money. Declan has the money and the means to care for Ash is a hush class expensive way but that just doesn’t fit her.
I love how Ash works hard for what she want. She is real. Someone I would be friends with.
No spoilers so I just have to say this is a must read.
I really hope Rhonda Lee Carver will write more about the Knight brothers. The series is captivating and leaves me craving lots more from this family of sexy men.


The Lying Game (The Game Duet, #1)The Lying Game by Mickey Miller
Amazon Link https://amzn.to/2xmRi6l

Each time I read a book by Mickey Miller I fall in love with his writing a little more. I said his last book was my favorite but that one has been dethroned by The Lying Game and Lacy and her arrogant basketball star Carter. The back story of these characters is perfect. I can see these two as friends through elementary school and then how they progressed to more in high school. I was rooting for them the whole time. Lacy’s dreams and Carters career seem to be on different paths but I desperately want them to meet somewhere in the middle.

The sexy was hot but the story was what I loved more than anything. Please hurry up and write book 2. I am not as patient as these characters have been their whole lives.

——————————-
The Last Check (Hell's Phoenix MC Series #2)The Last Check by Kristine Dugger

Amazon Link https://amzn.to/2D8rEHP

Kristine Dugger has written a story that goes beyond the MC romance. Don’t judge someone by how dresses, their appearance, or their first impression. Get to know the real person. You may find a friend or the love of your life.

Presley and Avery have strong armor surrounding their hearts. Its how they protect themselves. Presley and Avery are not what they project to the outside world. Like I said, looks and first impressions can be deceiving. Once they break the seal around their hearts you learn who they really are.

This story brought me to that ugly cry place which breaks your heart and heals it again with the love story between this unlikely couple.

Book 2 has left me anxious to learn more about the Hells Phoenix-Freedom Riders MC club. Red Recommended

Red’s Author Chit Chat with Dawn Doyle

I’m an Indie Romance Author, but I tend to write under many sub-genres such as Contemporary, Suspense, Paranormal, and even Fantasy.

Today’s interview is with an author that is totally new to me. When searching for authors to highlight Dawn Doyle answered up and agreed to talk with me. I met Dawn in The Redhead’s Reading lounge, one of my Facebook reader groups. We play, talk about the books and authors we love and have a giveaway here and there. I would love to see you there. Where as only 1 or 2 authors and books are shared in this blog each day, the Facebook groups allows for me to share 10 times as many books and authors with readers.

The Redhead’s Reading Lounge Facebook group link

Thank for joining me today Dawn. I see you listed romance as your genre and when stalking, I mean researching, for this interview I noticed you write multiple books within the romance book world. I also see you have a new release coming on 9/24, Blaine. That cover is HOT! The blurb and buy link are at the bottom of the interview. I am anxious to hear more about you and your books so let’s get started.

1) When did you start writing?

Dawn: Romance 2014, but I was dreaming up stories for myself for years.

2) Which one of your published books is your favorite? How about a favorite character from your books?

Dawn: I think Witch Hunter will always have a special place in my heart because I love anything magical. I think Lucian is my favourite right now.

Red: Just the name Lucian makes me shiver.

3) Do you have a specific way you choose the characters names?

Dawn: For the names, I just think of how the character looks and try to place a name to the face. If not, I search name sites for something that stands out to me.

Red: I can imagine the names are difficult until you describe them. 

4) What is your favorite part of being a published author?

Dawn: When a reader tells me they loved the story.

Red: <smiling>

5) Where is the strangest place you had a book or character idea come to you?

Dawn: On the toilet.

Red: You are the second author to mention this. The room seems to bring on a creative, ummmm shall we say, flow. 

6) I am sure you don’t sit with a timer but if you had to guess how long does it take for you to write a book? 

Dawn: The quickest was five weeks, the longest was eight months. I try to write at least an hour a day, but life gets in the way most of the time.

Red: Time does fly and there never seems to be enough hours in the day. 

7) Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?

Dawn: I do. With the bad ones, and I hope I’m not the only one who does this, I check to see if they like the same books as me by comparing our ratings. If I like a lot of the stuff they don’t, then it makes sense. If there’s a problem with my book, I want to know about it. But, I’ve come to realize that no matter what you do, or how good you are, there’s always somebody out there who’s going to hate your work no matter what.

Red: Personal commentary here. I believe that the star rating system is severely flawed. At The Redhead’s Book Blog we are working on a way to rate a book beyond the stars. Hey, that’s a great tagline for my new review team. You brought out my creative side. 

8) What do you do what you suffer from writer’s block?

Dawn:  Think of different scenario’s and see if they work any better. Sometimes, I leave my writing and read a few books, or I’ll work on another story.

9) Which of your books do you wish more readers were aware of?

Dawn: Soul Guardian and Witch Hunter. Paranormal and Fantasy are difficult to promote.

Red: Hopefully this interview will help with that. 

10) What advice would you give an aspiring author?

Dawn: Don’t give up. If you think your work is bad and nobody will like it, remember that we all do exactly the same thing. You won’t know until you try.

Red: Great advice!

11) What can we expect from you in the future?

  Dawn:  I’m writing the second book in the West Norton Boys .

13) Tell us something fun. Anything that can make us smile or giggle. Life is too short, lets spread some smiles around.

Dawn: I have a two-year-old English Bulldog named Jake. He farts…a lot.

Red: My dog is rude like that too or maybe its really one of the men in the house and they are just blaming the dog. 

Thanks for stopping by to chat with me today. It was great getting to know you better.

~Red xoxo
