One look, one touch, and there is no denying the heat…

Alexis Lopez just turned twenty-one, her parents are dead, and life isn’t exactly what she’d hoped. Her lackluster response to men is just one problem she’s eager to solve by volunteering for the Interstellar Bride Program. Sharing sensual dreams with her new mate is just the beginning. One look at the large, dominant alien who claims she belongs to him sets her body on fire. When he tells her, in explicit detail, how he’ll claim her in every way, she is eager to give her mate everything, body and soul.

But things aren’t that easy. Von of Everis is a Hunter. After years fighting the Hive wars, he’s home, and one of the top ranking military police in his region. But his bed, and his life, are empty until Alexis arrives. One look at his innocent little bride and he knows she belongs to him, but that claim is challenged by one of the most feared warriors on the planet.

Stolen kisses and mind-numbing pleasure won’t save Von from a deadly duel. Falling in love with his new mate drives a tenderness he didn’t believe he would ever feel. But Von is a Hunter, a warrior, a protector, and someone is trying to take what belongs to him. Someone is using his mate to set a trap…

Hey Grace Goodwin fans! Grace has come out with a new series in the Interstellar Brides Coalition, and this time, it’s all about the virgins! I’ll be honest, virgin books can be a real hit or miss for me, usually because of the way the heroine behaves for one, and then there’s the hero and how he behaves towards said virginity. But this one was a good one!

In the first book of the series, we have our heroine, Alexis Lopez, or Alex for short. She’s 21 and she’s held on to her virginity because no one has interested her enough to want to give it up to. But when she goes to the testing center, she quickly matches and has erotic dreams about her new mate. She also finds out that the birthmark she has is significant to her mate and his race on Everis as well.

Alex quickly makes friends with two other women who match and have marks as well.When she gets to Everis, before her mate, Von has a chance to claim her, a Major named Cosmo decides that Alex is his. He hates Von, and will do anything to cause trouble.

Will Alex find out what it’s like to have the Everis “Claiming Sequence” fully fulfilled, or will someone take her from Von forever?

This was a truly enjoyable read from Grace, as are all of the Interstellar Bride books. I do admit, I have a bunch to catch-up on in the whole series, but I’m going to have a blast doing it! I just LOVE this series!

This book gets 5 Super Stellar Stars

About Grace Goodwin

Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she’d grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead.

Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman’s pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very well taken care of.

She currently lives in Oregon where she spends her days writing, and her nights in the arms of her very own Prince.

Claiming Grace ( Book 1 of 2 in the Ace Security Series ) by Susan Stoker

Date of Publication: March 14, 2017

Blurb

For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it’s not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years.

Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family’s controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved.

Now, united by scars both visible and not, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family. But the Masons won’t let go easily—and they’ll do whatever it takes to keep the couple apart.

reviewfbknotty1

Susan Stoker has yet again come out with another wonderful, brilliant series. This time, it’s ACE Security, a company formed by three brothers, Logan, Blake, and Nathan Anderson. They form the company after the death of their father. This book is about Logan.

Logan is back in town after a 10 year absence, and he’s been avoiding his old high school sweetheart Grace Mason. He’s still mad at how they broke things off. But he doesn’t realize just how far Grace is under her family’s thumb. When he realizes the truth of things, he sets out to protect her, but will he be able to?

This was a fantastic, suspenseful book, and looks at abuse from an emotional and mental standpoint. As usual, Susan does a remarkable job dealing with sensitive subjects and writing a wonderful story with a great HEA.

Surrender to the Cyborgs: (Interstellar Brides: The Colony, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Surrender to the Cyborgs: (Interstellar Brides: The Colony, Book 1) by Grace Goodwin

Date of Publication: February 9, 2017

Blurb

Wrongly imprisoned whistle-blower Rachel Pierce would rather take her chances with her court appeal than accept her place as the first Interstellar Bride destined for the Colony. She’s stubborn and determined to seek justice—and her freedom—on Earth…but her mates are not willing to risk her life or her future on a system they believe to be both primitive and corrupt.

Maxim of Prillon Prime fought ten long years in the Hive wars. Captured and tortured with his second, Ryston, they escaped only to be rejected by their own people and condemned to life on the Colony with the other “contaminated” cyborg warriors. As leader of Sector 3, it’s Maxim’s duty to set an example for his warriors and summon a bride. When she refuses transport, he can’t allow her rejection to demoralize an entire planet of battle hardened but jaded warriors. Maxim and Ryston transport to Earth where they decide she’s theirs and a maximum security human prison will not keep them apart.
Getting Rachel to the Colony is only the first challenge they will face. Convincing their beautiful mate to surrender to not one, but two dominant warriors is another. Even if they can win her love, a new evil is rising on the Colony and someone close to Maxim will be its first victim. Maxim will be its second, unless Rachel’s love and relentless pursuit of the truth proves strong enough to save him.
reviewfbknotty1
There once was a day where I didn’t even think to entertain reading sci fi romance, but now it’s such a huge genre, I gave up the fight and gave in. Besides, with a lot of great writers taking up the mantle, I just had to give in.
I’m glad I did with Grace Goodwin.
While The Interstellar Brides Series isn’t new, this spinoff of it, The Colony is. The Colony is a planet where all of the warriors who were taken by the Hive and “infected” by being given their body parts, are sent to.
Rachel Pierce is a scientist who’s been wrongly convicted of multiple crimes because she was a whistleblower on a cancer drug that was dangerous.While she waits for a retrial that the owners do not want. So she becomes a bride. While on board with her two sexy mates, Rachel discovers something sinister is going on, so she sets about to try figuring it out before lives are lost, including one a little closer to home.
I greatly enjoyed this book, though the mating rituals are a bit off for my tastes with the whole rush to get pregnant. The storyline and the characters, however get a solid 4 Stars for being so enjoyable!

Marrying Emily by Susan Stoker

Marrying Emily (Delta Force Heroes) by Susan Stoker

Date of Publication: February 7, 2017

Blurb

Few people know better than Delta Force soldiers that life is unbearably short and achingly precious. So Cormac Fletcher isn’t waiting one more day to marry the love of his life, Emily.

Fletch has already adopted her daughter, Annie. Now it’s time to officially make Emily his too.

Emily understands just about every woman experiences a few wedding snafus―but they’re usually not of the harrowing, life-or-death variety. Fortunately for her, a guest list full of Delta soldiers and SEALs will make this an event to remember―for both Emily and the uninvited guests trying to ruin her special day.

reviewfbknotty1

Marrying Emily is part of Susan Stoker’s Delta Force Heroes series. If you remember, Fletch met Emily when she rented out the apartment over his garage. She was already having a hard time making ends meet and raising daughter Annie. A disgruntled soldier was shaking Emily down for money and making her believe it was at Fletch’s doing. Luckily, Emily wasn’t 100% fooled and Fletch has smart little Annie on the case as well.

Now, Fletch has adopted Annie and he’s about to make Emily his as well. But it wouldn’t be a Delta wedding without some drama at the reception. And you’ll all just have to see how that plays out. It does involve a mighty fine performance.

Despite this being a novella, it was full of the action and romance that Susan Stoker is known for, so you won’t feel cheated here. It’s full of humor, love, and suspense, and if you pay close attention, you might catch a whiff of a new series to come. (And I don’t mean the new Ace Security debuting in March)

Of course, aside from the Delta Force guys, we have heroes from our Badge of Honor series and the Seal of Protection series, including my favorite, Dude. (If you have to ask why he’s my favorite, you haven’t been paying attention. Just sayin.) I can only hope there are more…ahem…commanding guys like Dude in future books.

Dangerous Interference by BJ Wane

Dangerous Interference by BJ Wane

Date of Publication: January 6, 2017

Blurb

After her sister goes missing, Alena Malloy travels to Blue Springs, Maine—her sister’s last known location—to track her down. As she begins her search, however, Alena’s efforts quickly bring her into conflict with Randy Janzen, the local sheriff, and Nash Osbourne, a Scotland Yard detective involved in the case due to its similarity with a recent disappearance in the UK.

Randy and Nash make it quite clear to Alena they expect her to avoid interfering with their work, and when she defies them one time too many she earns herself a painful, embarrassing spanking. The humiliating punishment ignites a powerful desire in Alena, and despite her sore backside she finds herself yearning to be mastered more thoroughly.

The two stern, handsome lawmen agree to share Alena, and soon enough she is begging for more. But when Alena’s continued meddling in the investigation puts her life in grave danger, will Randy and Nash be able to protect her?

Publisher’s Note: Dangerous Interference includes spankings and sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

reviewfbknotty1

This is a more suspenseful book coming from BJ, but with the same juicy, kinky, spankalicious sex we’ve come to know and love from her. And as great as I think her writing is, I swear it only gets better every time!

A New York City forensic police photographer with the NYPD is looking for her missing sister. Her search brings her to Blue Springs, Maine. And Alaina Malloy just wants to find her troubled sister and leave the sleepy, backwoods town and get back to the hustle and bustle of busy New York.

But, she hadn’t counted on their sheriff, Randy Jenzen, or his friend, a Scotland Yard detective, Noah Osbourne, to show up every time she tries to investigate. Neither of them want her to compromise the case, especially when Noah’s involvement is supposed to be a secret, and one of Randy’s best friends may know what happened. So they show Alaina what happens when she doesn’t listen. Soon, incidents start to happen, and Alaina just may be in the line of fire. Can her two, strong, dominants keep her safe?

You’ll most definitely want to check this book out! The sex scenes were hot! The suspense was explosive! BJ Wane has arrived!

Girl Breaker by Harper Kincaid

Girl Breaker (Break On Through Book 3) by Harper Kincaid

Date of Publication: January 17, 2017

Blurb

Sometimes the best thing a good girl can do is make a bad decision.

Jessica has always been the girl with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book, only dating the “nice guys”. But when rough-around-the-edges Viking-biker-god, Mad Max, and his precocious little girl move onto her street, Jessica falls hard and fast for both of them. Max is no stranger to women wanting to share his bed—and he’s always been more than happy to oblige them all. He’s lived wild all his life—that is, until a daughter shows up on his doorstep and he meets a redheaded angel down the block.

There’s nothing more he wants than to claim Jessica as his, to bring the gorgeous spitfire to his bed. But a man like him doesn’t get a happy ending with a woman like her. He’s got a whole other life, one he’s kept secret for good reason. If Jessica found out what he really is, there’s no way she could love him. He should keep his hands to himself. But he’s Mad Max—he’s never done the right thing, and he’s not going to start now.

Warning: Contains a dominating alpha male who’s a lot more than he seems, and a good girl with a swirl of flavors under her vanilla

reviewfbknotty1

Harper Kincaid is a new author to me, but reading the blurb of this book, I decided to take a chance and see what it was all about. I’m really glad I did. Of course, as usual for me, I come in late. There are two other books in this series, this being number three. So I did what any self-respecting blogger does, I obtained the first two.

Girl Breaker was honest to goodness a wonderful book, and Max was one sexy, growly, highly dominant hero. He’s an ex-SEAL who is now working on motorcycles and has a daughter that is way too smart for her own good. Jessica is a teacher who lives right down the street from him, she’s also reduced to mush every time she sees the man, but he usually has a parade of women at his house.

After avoiding Jess, Max finally admits he wants her, but her older sister Samantha knows Max, leaving Jess to make the decision of whether or not she can really handle Max or if she’s as fragile as her sister says she is.

This book was a quick read for me, and though I wish the sex scenes were a bit hotter, Max was still enough to get my motor revving. There were a few times I worried that Jess was maybe being a bit too judgemental on Max, but Samantha was the worst of the lot. All in all, a highly enjoyable book, and I am excited about digging into the first two.

reviewfbknotty1

I will be the first to admit, I thought this book was going to be something ver different than it was. I’d read the blurb on the back cover, thought it sounded interesting, and went with it. I was so wrong.

I’d failed to realize that there were other books before it, which would have made this soooo much better for me. However, I still really liked this book, enough so that I went and got those missing books so I could find out just what I missed, and so I could learn more about Logan’s life. But I honestly enjoyed the world that Tia has created, and I’ll be thrilled to read more of it. I’ll probably read this book again and love it even more, having gleaned the much better back story with Zelda and Ava’s beginning with the royals.

Logan is a sexy, loyal body guard to the queen regent, and Kass is the second chance, kick butt heroine from his past. I thought these two absolutely deserved their HEA, especially Kass. This was just some terrific writing, and you can bet I’m going back for more. Tia Louise will be adding up in my TBR pile!
