Tease Me Tour by Melissa Schroeder (Day 1)


Hello, everyone and welcome to my seven day blog tour!!! Seven days of different prizes and fun about my new series,  Semper Fi Marines!

Everyone who read The Santinis knows about the Johnson brothers. Hardheaded but softhearted heroine MJ, from Leonardo, has three brothers, all Marines, just like their dad. Tease Me is the first of the novellas featuring them. 

Semper Fi Marines, book 1

Check out the Trailer

A man who thinks he has what he wants.
Bran Johnson always knew he wanted to be a Marine. What makes it even better is longtime gal pal TK is now stationed at the same base. Unfortunately, Bran is having a hard time dealing with his feelings when he realizes that TK is considered a hot commodity on base. Worse, he finds himself taking a backseat to her admirers.
A woman who always wished for more.
Tess Keller has loved Bran since they were in high school. The former football captain always treated her like a friend so she tried to move on. Unfortunately, he’s in her business constantly now. One passionate argument leads to more than either of them expected. Tess knows it isn’t going to last because Bran is never going to settle down. So, to save face, she suggests they stay friends, only with the side benefit of being sometime lovers.
A Marine determined to win at all costs.
Bran agrees to the friends with benefits idea just to keep himself close to Tess. She might think he’s not around for the long haul, but this is one Johnson brother who knows exactly what he wants…and just how to get it. And what he wants is Tess in his bed and in his life forever. Nothing will stop him, not even Tess herself.

 photo mel-about.jpgFrom an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.
Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, twelve nominations for AAD Bookies, winning both Most Accessible Author and Author of the Year, and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She recently had her first USA Today bestselling book, The Santinis Collection.
Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, happy her husband is finally retired and they are living where the bugs die in the winter.

That is, until her baby sister announces she’s marrying a country-club boy from the bright lights of Dallas. Charlie’s got two months to defeat her sister’s she-demon Maid of Honor, keep her cousins from ruining the nuptials, and decide whether her one-time, one-night stand Alex Ramirez is worth a second chance.

Alex has thought of almost nothing but Charlie for two years, since the morning he woke up alone in her empty hotel room. Her sister’s upcoming wedding to his best friend seems like the perfect opportunity to reconnect with the girl who got away, but he underestimates her pull on him and soon finds himself torn between love and duty. 

With the wedding fast approaching, Alex and Charlie’s relationship will be put to the test. Hillbillies, debutantes, and the old southern divide of rich and poor threaten to keep them apart. One thing's for sure, it's about to get interesting in Harlow County.

The Billionaire's Best Friend by Christina Tetreault + Contest

The Billionaire’s Best Friend
Christina Tetreault

The one man she never stopped loving is back in town.  Now Lauren McDonald must decide between the man who promises her the world and the man who has the power to crush her heart again.


Despite a wonderful family, a career she loves, and great friends, a void has existed in Lauren McDonald's life ever since her best friend Callie married billionaire Dylan Talbot. Although they have remained close, Lauren and Callie now lead very different lives, that is until Lauren meets wealthy CEO Kevin Walsh. Lauren believes he could be the man who will help make her life whole again.  That is until the night Nathaniel Callahan, her high school sweetheart and the one man she has always loved, shows up. 

Although Nate ended things with Lauren before heading off to The Naval Academy and his life with the Marines, he never stopped loving her. Now 15 years later he is back to correct the mistake he made all those years ago. 

With Nate back in town, Lauren must decide between the man who promises her the world and the man who has the power to crush her heart again.


The main doors of the room opened as Lauren paused her scan; the guest of honor was about to enter. Grabbing her camera, Lauren stood—only to immediately collapse back down into her chair when her knees gave out at the sight of Nathaniel Callahan standing in the doorway.

“Oh my God.” Her stomach hit the floor.

“What's the matter? Are you okay?” Callie's concerned voice sounded as if it were traveling a great distance to reach her.

Lauren glanced over at Callie and then toward the door again. Perhaps she'd imagined him. After all, why would he be here? The last time she'd heard anything about him, he was doing his third tour in the Middle East. Despite her hope that she'd started to hallucinate, when she looked again, he was still there, dressed in a black suit rather than his Marine uniform, his brown hair cut military short and looking much the same as he did the summer he'd broken her heart. She latched her hand onto Callie's arm. “Nate Callahan. He's here.” 

She kept her eyes on him. Since that awful day the summer after senior year, she'd only seen him once. She'd been home visiting her parents during holiday break her freshman year of college. She’d spotted him in his parents' driveway from her bedroom window. They'd received more than two feet of snow the night before and he was helping his father shovel. That morning she'd stood and watched until the entire driveway was cleared. When he and his dad finished, he went back inside his house without so much as a glance toward her home.

“What?” Callie asked, her voice louder than necessary.

Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Kevin and Dylan headed back to the table. "Nate just walked in," Lauren hissed.

"Lauren that . . ." Callie's voice trailed off and she sat up straighter. Her head moved to keep him in sight as he walked toward his parents. "What's he doing here?" she asked, her voice lower now.

Leaning closer, Lauren whispered, "I don't know. We don't exactly speak." 


Author Bio:
I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother's manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you'll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story.

Review ~

I was so excited when I heard that author Lacey Thorn was going to continue her Pleasure series. I loved the previous three books and her latest release, Guarded For Pleasure, did not disappoint. Who wouldn't want to read about three sexy bodyguards? *sigh* And be jealous of the woman that gets all their attention. LOL! 

Meg aka River is running scared as an ex-boyfriend continues to stalk her after she leaves him and her old life behind. Enter Luke, Phil and Rick who have been starring in her fantasies and ready to make them come true while trying to keep her safe. I loved how protective they were of River and taking matters into their own hands so she could reclaim her life and reunite with her best friends again. All four of them had great chemistry and the sex scenes were scorching HOT! 

This was a quick, sexy read and I enjoyed the romantic suspense element in this story. I have to thank Lacey for listening to her fans who begged for more Pleasure stories (that would be me, LOL!). I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Double the "Trick" fun!

Today we have double the fun with a double review 

Dirty Trick by Christine Bell

Title: Dirty Trick
Series: Perfectly Matched, Book 1
Author: Christine Bell
Released: September 23, 2013
Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Length: 250 Pages

Publisher: Entangled Publishing : Brazen 

ARC Review: Received book in exchanged for an honest opinion.
Reviewer: Lola Loves Books


Grace Love is lousy with men. She can spot a match for someone else a mile away, and her balls-on instincts are why her matchmaking business is thriving, but finding her own Prince Charming? The only guy who makes her sixth sense tingle is her playboy best friend, Trick, and no way is she risking their friendship, no matter how hot she knows the sex will be.

SWAT officer Trick Matthews is a patient guy, but Grace’s inability to see what’s right in front of her is grinding on his last nerve. Yeah, he blew his shot at breaking out of the friend zone when he tamped down the urge to lick her from head to toe the day they met, but he’s got a plan that’ll change her mind. Incognito at Salem's hottest Halloween party, he’ll show her exactly how good they could be…and that he’s the man for her.

Trick or treat? I’ll take Trick, for sure!

Who doesn’t love a story about best friends who’ve pined for each other secretly? If that’s one of your favorite tropes, then this book is for you.

Patrick “Trick” Matthews, is Grace’s neighbor and friend. He’s a sexy member of the local SWAT team and experiences no lull in the hanky-panky department—women have been streaming in and out of his house for years—until lately. His sights are now set and Grace is in the crosshairs. The upcoming Halloween party is the perfect chance for him to show Grace they’re meant for other. But there’s a flaw in his plan...

Here’s the irony... Grace’s love life is nonexistent, yet she’s an owner/operator of a matchmaking business. She and her friend Serena must go to this Halloween party in order to land an important client, one who can help skyrocket their business, Love Will Find a Way, to success. At the party, she runs into the mysterious “Cat Man” and even though she lacks a bit of self-confidence, she throws caution to the wind and enjoys every nip, lick and thrust this stranger has to offer.

Enter Trick’s flaw—When, if ever, is the best time to tell her he is Cat Man? Trickery gets trickier (say that three times real fast) in this cute story. It’s a definite page-turner, drawing you in because you have to know how Trick is going to get himself out of this mess with Grace—all the while I bet you’ll be rooting for him, hoping Grace will be able to forgive him.

Dirty Trick is a super cute story full of sexiness and witty banter. Grace is loveable, Trick is undeniably sexy, and Serena... Well, let’s just say she’s a real kick in the pants and hopefully gets her own story sometime soon!

I was so excited when I heard that author Christine Bell has an upcoming release titled Dirty Trick. Doesn't this just give you all sorts of ideas, whether it's dirty, naughty or just plain tricky? LOL! Well, let me tell you that this story had all three which I loved including a sexy hero in uniform and then a mask *sigh*

Trick is a SWAT officer and known as a "player" by his best friend, Grace and the woman of his dreams. Grace has seen a string of women coming in and out of his house ever since she's known him and she's even felt a "tingle" for her sexy friend. Or is he just a friend?
 I love stories where the hero and heroine are best friends and there's an underlying attraction beneath the surface waiting to be explored. Trick is tired of waiting for Grace to see him as something more than a friend, so when the opportunity to change that falls into his hands, he acts on it. Donned in his mask, he approaches Grace at a Halloween party and she is instantly attracted to him. The air between them just sizzles and they end up having sex. I really enjoyed the spontaneity of the moment and the passion that surrounded them. It does not stop here. Wait until you get to the movie theater scene...holy smokes that was one hot scene *fans self* 

Even after these passionate encounters with her "masked" man, Grace can't stop thinking about Trick and how much she loves him and not just as a friend. She now realizes that Trick is everything she's been looking for and ready to tell him so. Will Trick finally get the woman he's been longing for or will he lose Grace when she finds out about his alter ego and his dirty trick?

Kudos to this wonderful author for writing another sexy and emotional story that I could get "lost" in for a few hours and become totally invested in. What a wonderful way to start a new series! I loved the interaction of all the characters in this story and the friendships among them. I enjoyed the playfulness and bantering between Trick and his SWAT buddies and the strong bond between Grace and Serena. I hope we will get to read stories for all of them. I'm really looking forward to Serena's story as we got a quick glimpse that she's been hurt in the past. I'm dying to find out what happened and want to see the man that heals her heart.

Finding the Right Girl ~ Violet Duke ~Cover Reveal ~ Contest

Cover Reveal

Finding the Right Girl
by Violet Duke
 Release Day : October 28, 2013

Blurb ~

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington’s, and the other to his brother.  And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t gotten a bit more cautious, however. Lately, Brian’s been thinking that maybe his brother’s now retired nothing-but-flings rule wasn’t such a bad idea after all. But as the unofficial nice guy poster boy, Brian needs some help with the whole thing. So he looks to the outrageously ‘unique,’ inexplicably enigmatic, provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels.

There’s absolutely no way he’s falling in love with this one…right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She’s never been flung and she sure as heck doesn’t know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. Tessa blames her temporary lapse in sanity on the can’t-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever she’s around him. Not only does he have her being more herself than she’s ever been in her life, but he’s the only man that seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What’s more, he’s got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.
