Get a sneak peek at COLD HEARTED:Darsh pushed through the crowd of spectators who lingered despite the lateness of the hour and the sub-zero temps. He hoped someone here had the smarts to photograph the onlookers in addition to the crime scene. Killers often came back to observe the chaos they wrought. It was all part of the thrill. Unlike most fictional killers and rapists, the real life versions were generally as smart as a thumbtack. He flashed his creds at the police officer manning the outer perimeter and ducked under the tape. “Agent Singh. FBI. I need to speak to whoever’s in charge.” “You’re FBI?” He ignored the skepticism. “That’s what they told me when I graduated the academy.” He pocketed his gold shield as the officer shouted to one of her colleagues before leading him to the two-story clapboard house surroundded by yellow crime scene tape. “Sorry.” The rookie was flustered. A dark blush worked its way into her cheeks and matched her cold-looking nose. “I wasn’t expecting a fed to show up.” Darsh signed his name on the log, put paper covers over his boots, latex gloves on his hands, and walked into the house. It was just as cold inside—front and back doors were wide open. At least it would slow decomposition. The rookie button-hooked a right and walked up to a blonde who wore a gray pantsuit beneath a black parka with a fur-lined hood. The blonde had her head down but seemed vaguely familiar. She looked up, and a pair of smoky blue eyes collided with his. Every neuron in his body sparked to life as recognition slammed into his gut. Her pupils dilated, but apart from that, she betrayed no visible reaction. Fuck. There was no smile. No “Hey, how’re ya doin’?” But then their last encounter had been conducted under very different circumstances. Horizontal. Naked. Panting.”

The Greek’s unexpected parting gift…
Stergios Antoniou hasn’t seen his exiled, troublemaking stepsister, Jodie Little, since the night they finally gave in to their forbidden attration. Learning she’s turned to Athens during a business deal too crucial to jeopardize, he holds her prisioner on his provate island until it’s over.
Jodie wants to retify the past, but being so close to Stergios’s potent sensuality, she’s once again a slave to their destructive desire. One last illicit night should have put their affair behind them, but Jodie leaves the island with more scorching-hot memories.
I love Greece, I would totally love travel there and get the magic of the Mediterranean coast; saying this, I also love to read romance base in this country, I felt that there something unique and exotic of the culture, food, history and places that hold me into the magical of it. However, I’m not fool about the lacking of plot consistence in the romance genre and the fact that pretty much everything is another copy of, what it seems, the same pre-produce script.
With all of this into motion, I also have to say that these Greek romances are my guilty pleasure and I won’t end to read them anytime soon. Illicit Night with the Greek was a good book to read for a great afternoon, it does have romance, drama and lot of family problems. What I love of this book was the romance itself, that even when it’s kind of sick, it’s still very pretty. By other hand what I didn’t like was the fact that everything happened so fast that we don’t have time to process the whole thing. I expect more drama and story unfold.
But, I think for lovers of romance this will be a great book because it has all the elements we like about when we read these kinds of books. I recommend it to spend a pretty afternoon with some coffee and biscuits!

Love can heal and love can make you soar, but Nate’s expression said my love had broken him. The thought of Nate not knowing how much I wanted him back shattered me. As his eyes filled with utter confusion, he waited for me to continue.
“Then why didn’t you ask me?” Nate scowled. “What changed your mind? Or should I say who changed your mind?” He didn’t wait for me to answer. Instead, he gripped his hair with his fists and walked away.
“It isn’t what you think.” I searched for the best words to explain.
I might have screwed up finding the right words. It was hard to concentrate with him standing there shirtless, water dripping slowly down his chest from his wet hair.
God, he looked sexy as hell. He had no idea what he was doing to me. I wanted to lick every single drop. In my mind, my hands traveled all over his toned chest, wiping away the water like I was his towel.
Nate glared at me, unbelieving, as if he expected me to lie. Then he rushed to me and punched the wall with an expression of rage I’d never seen. His body so close to mine, almost touching, caused my focus to slip away.
“Don’t fuck with me, Olie,” he gritted through his teeth. “It isn’t what I think? I wasn’t given the chance to think.” He pointed to himself. “There wasn’t much to think when I saw Troy practically on top of you.”
I had known that moment would cause me problems. Nate’s expression eased when I began to tremble. His anger and how he’d reacted seemed to surprise him, too. I found my composure again and continued before he had another episode that was so out of character. There was no going back.
“I couldn’t tell you because of Troy. Not because I wanted to be with him, but because I was scared of him.”
“What?” His eyebrows pinched at the center, and his pitch rose again. “What do you mean you were afraid of him? Did he threaten you? Did he hurt you?”
When I nodded through unrelenting tears, Nate guided me to the bed with his hand on my back. I wiped my cheeks and sat next to him. His proximity drove me insane,
especially when my hand accidently grazed his chest.
“Tell me everything.” he said softly, but it was more of a demand. I could tell his anger had turned toward Troy and away from me.

Nathan Cross is a struggling actor waiting tables at a local restaurant to make ends meet while he attends endless auditions. Though his hopeful career moves at a slow pace, Olivia is the strength and sunshine in his life… until she leaves him. One day, he is offered a contract with a modeling agent, leading him to work for Knight Fashion Magazine—a dream job he never imagined would become a reality.
Olivia swore she would always put her career first and that’s precisely what she did when she left Nathan. Having a deadbeat dad and watching her mom work two jobs to make ends meet have been her driving force. When she is offered a modeling career, she drops everything—even the love of her life—and moves to New York. Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened.
Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?

About SOMETHING GREAT:
She didn't know what she was missing...until he found her.
Maxwell Knight was dangerously good-looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble. He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did NOT need now.
Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends, the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she'd never felt before--dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat. Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were beginning to change around her. When she lands her dream job and travels to New York for Fashion Week, can she focus on her career instead of on Maxwell?
Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she
miss out on the chance of finding something great?

Dragon Storm by Katie MacAlister
Series: dragon Falls #2, Dragons Sept #12
Genre: Paranormal / Romance / Urban Fantasy
Pages: 232 (ebook)
Publication: November 24th, 2015 by Forever
Rating: 4 HEARTSSynopsis:
TURN ON THE CHARM
According to some (including himself), Constantine is one of the greatest heroes of dragonkin who ever lived. Too bad he’s now lonelier than ever and his biggest adventure involves a blow-up sheep-until he has an opportunity to save his kind once again. All Constantine has to do is break into a demon’s dungeon, steal an ancient artifact, and reverse a deadly curse. The plan certainly does not involve rescuing a woman…
TURN UP THE HEAT
Bee isn’t sure whether to be infuriated or relieved when Constantine pops up in her prison. The broody, brawny shifter lights her fire in a way no one ever has before, yet how far can she really trust him? Their chemistry may be off the charts, but when push comes to shove, Constantine will have to make a crucial choice: to save the dragons or the woman he’s grown to love with fierce intensity.
Like I always say, I’m a huge fan of Katie MacAlister’s books, and I’ve read lot of them, especially about the Dragon world. She started with Aisling Grey and the Green dragon sept, then with Mayling and the Silver dragons, and I personally swoon over Baltic, Ysolde and the Light dragons, and now we get into the Black dragon sept. And after read the first book of this new series, Dragon Fall, and the crazy things about the dragon curse, I needed to know more about, beside the fact that Baltic would appear on it.
Dragon Storm tells the story of Bee Dakar, who we previously meet on Dragon Fall, as the betrayer sister of Kostya new mate, Aoife (I really like this name). Bee is… well, I quite don’t understand what she is, a “charmer” or something like that, but she is very powerful and is assigned to help dragon lift the curse they have upon. She has to work with the former silver wyvern, and the most annoying dragon of all, Constantine Norka, to put everything together and saves dragon once and for all.
I like this book, I think that the characters were well presented and the story unfold quite well, but I also felt that it lacks of something; I think that I feel this ways because I love the first series so much and when I spend great time with this new one, it doesn’t feel like It could be that good. However, is as entertaining as the others and you can spend a great time with it, and love Constantine. Well, I didn’t fall in love of Constantine but I liked him better now.
Though, not my favorite book of the dragon world, I truly recommend read it because it perfectly lightly to spend a great time with a hot dragon and a woman who, for sure, is going to make him beat his arrogant, stubborn and old head against the wall. And, also you can read the whole dragons sept series because is awesome.
I'm Giovana - I'm a 22 journalist and book lover. I share my love for books, life, food and all those pretty things I like about this world. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy write it for you.
