Review ~ Stately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse

SPStately Pleasures
by Lucy Felthouse

Blurb:

Three’s a magic number in this steamy love triangle set in a British stately home.

Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It’s only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it’s the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs.

Unfortunately, things don’t get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what’s happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, throw an ultimatum at her, she’s so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal.

When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, she realises that perhaps it isn’t such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Diana’s Review:
Absolutely enjoyed this book. ***Warning*** It is very sexually explicit. If you are not interested in reading the sexual scenes you will want to pass on this. I didn’t mind at all. Shy insecure girl, gets dream job and scandalous yet dream worthy offer from two hot guys. What’s not to like.

The indecent proposal in this story is rather outrageous and at the same time rather intoxicating. It was extremely difficult to put down so I could get a few hours sleep. Once you start reading it you will know why. I love fictional romance novels that go beyond PC, push boundaries and lean towards VERY erotic.

Went to sleep with a big smile on my face. . .

Review- Blessed- Ann Mayburn

blessed

Eliana Shay is an ordinary college girl with an extraordinary birthright. When handsome professor, Aiden Klemenson, sees her, he singles her out as a potential Chosen of the benevolent gods of Creation. He tries to convince Eliana that she is born to do the work of the gods—something unique and powerful. But Eliana’s past doesn’t allow her to have the trust she needs—in Aiden’s gods and the man himself.
Aiden must employ all of his considerable charm to break through her defenses, while trying to keep their relationship strictly platonic. A difficult task when the lush and curvy Eliana’s obvious desire and seductive aura shreds his self-control. Despite his best efforts, desire burns between them with an enchantment all its own.
The gods of Destruction will stop at nothing to keep Eliana from becoming a powerful force against evil. Cunning and deceitful, they send demons and magical serial killers to exterminate her before she can become a Creation god’s Chosen hand on earth. In order to survive, Eliana will have to learn to have faith in her own strength and the warrior who stole her heart.
This title is previously published and has been extensively revised and lengthened in content.

Tamara’s Review
The world of the Chosen is rife with Magic and Mystery, Mythology and Legend, Creation, Destruction, Passion and Love. Yeah, I kinda love this world!
I have a real soft spot for stories based on ancient myths. I love delving into the history and the Chosen draws all the pantheons of the Gods together in one new world. The Greeks, Romans, Celts, Nordic, African, Egyptian… all the Gods from everywhere, so what a base Miss Mayburn has to choose from in creating her stories.
Blessed had me from page one. I felt an immediate connection to Eliana. I generally don’t like young 20’s heroines (Eliana is a college student) but Ellie is mature, funny and snarky. She is a wonderful combination of emotional innocence and inner fire. This poor girl gets some sh*t thrown at her that would make your head spin and she doesn’t whine and wail, she accepts with an open mind, pulls up her big girl panties and moves on.
The men who enter her life: Aiden, Jack and Devon are hot, hunky heroes, with a tremendous responsibility to both society and their Gods. Aiden and Elaina were great together, but I loved the addition of the other males, not as love interests, but as protectors and secondary characters. I can tell you I am totally stoked to read Devon’s story in Dreamer! I can’t wait to see what kind of girl will win his heart.
Blessed was a fast paced read that kept you turning the pages. There was a new danger around every corner and enough hot love scenes to make your panties melt. I was dying to get to the end… but didn’t want the ride to be over.
I highly reccomend Blessed to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.

Blog Tour ~ Trailer Park Princess ~ Delia Steele



Add to GR 

Amazon 

Rory used to count down the days until she could leave, but now with a younger brother in tow, it would be hard. She could never leave him. Rory is trapped in the Trailer Park like a princess in her tower, with her mother playing the big bad, drunken, fire-breathing dragon.  The dream of her knight coming to save her faded away about the same time her goals changed. Feeling useless, and angry Rory starts her new school and gets trampled by none other than the Monroe Falls Golden Boy, Tobias West. She finds herself seeing him as the knight she dreamed  of; though, she believes it to be just that, a dream. 



Tobias (Toby) is Mr.  Popular/ Mr. Perfect/ Mr. Money-in-the-bank. He is too high on the social ladder  to step down to her level. Or is he?  Toby is smitten with Rory. Toby’s ex, Ashley, refuses to lose out to trailer park  trash, and Rory finds herself the fuel to Ashley’s newfound hate. On top of  Monroe Falls High School drama, Rory still has to deal with her drunken mother  and needy brother. She doesn’t have time for childish games.

Reality hits Rory  hard when her mother brings home a ticking time bomb for a bed mate and the need for that shiny knight becomes real.  Rome appears like she conjured him out of thin air with magical powers, and instantly becomes her best friend. He seems to always be around when she needs someone to talk to and seems to always know just how to fix it. (Did I mention he is drop dead beautiful?) Two knights in shining armor? Nope!! That doesn’t happen. Not in fairy tales, and definitely not in real life. 
Rory finds herself realizing there is a thin line between relationships and friendships, lines that are starting to blur. With Toby getting ready to leave for college, Ashley’s nonstop meanness, and Rome showing up, can Rory handle the pressure? Her old friend reality takes another whack at her, causing her dread and despair to take over. Rory is questioning herself, and it’s wreaking havoc on the strong girl she’s always considered herself to be. Have her poor choices doomed her to life in the trailer park, or will she be able to exceed even her own expectations?  Will she ever realize she is truly a princess worthy of getting her prince? Or will she simply survive? How does Rory’s story end? 


This book is suited best for readers over the age of 17 due to sexual content and some language, as well as a few different types of abuse that are rarely talked about: Verbal, Mental, and to some extent, Sexual and Physical.


“So,
Princess, you gave away the golden key to the court jester, huh?” He lets out a
sad, pitiful laugh and looks up at me. I swear I see his eyes water up. Taking
our cups, I head into the living room and slide down beside him.
“Yes.
Prom night.” I feel about a foot tall. “It was the most horrible thing ever. I
mean I really hated it.” He puts his hand on my knee.
“You
can tell me if you want. I may not like it, but you can always tell me. You’re
my best friend, and I want to be here for you.” I lay my hand over his.
“Trust
me, Rome, you would likely be ready to beat his ass again afterwards, so let’s
just not.” We stay like that a while, and I think he’s letting it go.
“Ok,
you don’t have to tell me, but I still need to know it wasn’t forced. He didn’t
force you, did he?” I shake my head no, but I never look at him. He stands up,
and I can see him flexing his fist.
“I’ll
be back in a few. Gonna grab the boys from Mrs. Crazy and bring them here. They
can crash in there with Mr. Drunkard tonight. Mando will be here in a few, and
she’s bringing over bowling and her Wii.” He smiles and walks out the door.





My name is Delia Steele. I am 30 years old and reside in Tupelo, Mississippi. I have been here my whole life, minus the year stint I took to be a beach bum in Destin, Florida. I am happily married to the love of my life, and we have two wild and crazy kids. I do have a dog, but I am not a fan of him AT ALL. That little wiener isn’t good for anything except yapping. I am more of a ferret kind of girl. I have a full-time job and a part-time job outside of writing. My words are more of a hobby for me. I enjoy writing, and it calms the voices in my head. My highest education comes from a Job-corp Facility and my major was NOT English. I was more about learning to rebuild cars back then. All of my books have meaning, and it usually revolves around accepting people for who they are, not who you want them to be. I usually write about strong females, with a supportive Adonis on the side! If I had to pick five words to describe me, they would be in no order: honest, loud, eclectic, extreme, and obsessive. I believe we should all live like we are dying, and if we do something stupid, we should write about it!
Not sure, what else to tell you but if you want to know something, just 
ask =]
