Rescuedheart_finalAbout RESCUED HEART by Tarina Deaton

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and Tarina Deaton comes an exciting collaboration…

“Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.”

The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend.

Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle. The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since.

Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.

Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?

Get your hands on RESCUED HEART and all of the Titan World books now!

reviewfbknotty1

I am a huge fan of Cristin Harber’s Titan Series, so I was a bit mixed on whether to start reading the World books. I have to say that Rescued Heart simply blew me away. Tarina Deaton did an amazing job combining Jared Weston’s Titan Group with her series. I went and bought the first book so I could read it, she’s definitely made herself a new fan.

Jordan Grant is called off a mission to help the Titan group in a rescue. He’s not quite sure why he’s been asked until he finds out that it’s Emmeline France, his best friend’s little sister and the girl he kissed years ago. She’s been kidnapped, beaten, and held for ransom.

Jordan spends time with Emme helping her recover. He also realizes he’s powerless to stop the attraction they both feel. But what happens when it’s time for the real world?

This book was truly amazing, it had me smiling, crying, and all sorts of emotional. It’s going right into my, “Read it again!” file.

Read an Excerpt

“Emme, talk to me.”

“I can’t,” she whispered. What could she say? She couldn’t even explain it to herself.

“Do you want me to leave?”

She moved closer to him and shook her head. That was the last thing she wanted. Jordan made her feel safe. Protected. She knew he wouldn’t let anything happen to her. He’d literally fought for her already.

“You’re killing me. I don’t know what to do.” His hands ran up and down her back, trying to sooth her.

“Kiss me.” Oh, jeez. Did she really just say that? Is that what she wanted?

“Emme—”

“Please, Jordan.” She unburied her head. “I want you to kiss me. I need you to. I need to feel something other than all the crap I’m feeling now.”

A small furrow appeared between his brows.

“Please,” she whispered.

His head tilted and hovered a hairsbreadth away from her lips. She slid her hand behind his head, running her fingers over the soft stubble at the base of his neck and pulled him closer. His lips were firm but gentle.

She didn’t want gentle. She wanted to feel.

She wanted to feel him.

Opening her mouth, she touched her tongue to his lips.

His sharp inhale signaled his surprise and he groaned. “Emme.”

“More.” She pressed her mouth against his again. He reciprocated and his tongue laved her bottom lip before delving into her mouth to tangle with hers. She moaned and pressed closer, closing the distance between their bodies.

Now she realized why he’d kept some space between them. His erection nudged her lower stomach through their pajama bottoms. She threw her leg over his hips, eliciting a deep groan.

He ended their kiss, pressing his forehead against hers. His breathing was harsh. Tortured. “Emme, we have to stop.”

“No, we don’t.” She tried to pull him back to her mouth, but he resisted.

“You’ve just gone through a horrible experience. I know you’re feeling a lot of confusing emotions, but this isn’t the way to handle them.”

“You don’t understand. You might think you do, but you don’t. All my power was stripped from me. I was beaten and tossed around like I was trash. I need to feel something good. I need to have hands on me that don’t bring me pain.”

Welcome To Titan World!

availablenow

Today is the day – the Titan World books are now available on everywhere! Don’t miss these incredible novels all set in Cristin Harber’s Titan World.

Did you miss what Titan World is all about? Here’s a recap from Cristin herself:

 

I am excited to announce the Titan World stories! From military romance and romantic suspense to contemporary romance and paranormal, a few of my favorite authors have jumped head first into our heart-pounding world and penned their stories with Titan twists. You will see familiar characters from popular, bestselling series as they collide in fantastic collaborations! Plus I’m excited to introduce two debut authors who you may already know if you are familiar with all things Team Titan.

Please join me in welcoming the Titan World authors: Claudia Connor, Gennita Low, Jessie Lane, M.L. Buchman, Megan Mitcham, Sharon Kay, Karyn Lawrence, Amber Addison, Anna Bishop Barker, and Tarina Deaton.

Quick Q&A

Am I writing a story too? You betcha! Déjà vu will be Doc Tuska’s story. He’s not a Titan team member, but he is a familiar and constant face in the series—perfect for Titan World!

Which Titan characters will be in the other author’s stories? The authors had free rein. Some took on Titan like missions while others wrote backstories to characters and expanded on their families. They took scenes from current Titan books and expanded in a new direction.

What is the reading order of the Titan World? There is NO READING order (Even if one of the retailers has randomly assigned a series number. Ahem, I’m looking at you, Amazon.).

Okay, now on to the good stuff! You can order your books here:

harber-dejavuAbout DEJA VU by Cristin Harber

“Amnesia Allie” should’ve been one of Dr. James Tuska’s normal patients: another CIA asset who they wanted well-cared for and then sent on her merry way. Everyday work at his niche medical practice was never that interesting… until she claimed the impossible. “He’s my fiancé.” James had never met Allie, yet he couldn’t say no even if he was part of the Agency cover up. Now the Agency wants her dead.

Between the lies and the hiding, the woman who turned the CIA upside down with three words brought him to his knees.

And then Allie disappeared… Nothing would ever be the same.

reviewfbknotty1

So far, I’ve gotten a few books in this new Kindle World Series Cristin has so wonderfully decided to share. Over the next month, I’ll be reviewing the books I chose. Of course, I had to dig into Cristin’s Deja Vu.

Finally, the Titan team’s beloved Dr James Tuska gets the girl! Or does he? A woman dubbed Amnesia Allie is left in James care and told to bring her back as a civilian. The CIA doesn’t want her to remember who she is or what she knows.

But when he walks into the room, she points him out as her fiancee, and things get dicey from there. He finds himself attracted to her, and after she’s discharged, he checks in on her.

But “Allie” knows she’s not who they say she is, and it’s not until she disappears until he . realizes that he’s in deep, she’s in trouble, and he loves her.

It was a brilliant short read, and I was thrilled to see Dr T get his book, along with seeing the others in the Titan family.

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and best-selling author Jessie Lane comes an exciting collaboration…

What happens when Titan and Ex Ops work together?

Terror has gripped the NYPD. A rogue snipper took out, not only the NYPD’s SWAT snippers and police chief, but several others. Now they must turn to the only person they can trust: Jared Weston and the Titan Group.

There’s only one problem. The Titan Operatives are currently tied up with their own missions. Unwilling to leave the NYPD hanging, Jared Weston cashes in a favor from Commander Jaxon Wall. Only, Jared doesn’t want to send Jaxon’s Ex Ops Team for the job; he wants to send in someone Jaxon has kept secret: his goddaughter, Billie Jean Beasely, one of the best snipers working for the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, if only her male counterparts would let her prove it. The NYC mission could finally give her that chance.

Thing is, Jaxon Wall isn’t willing to send his goddaughter in alone. He wants to send one of his own men to help her. Chase Anderson.

Will Chase turn out to be yet another man who thinks Billie is less of a shot just because she’s a woman? Or will Billie finally meet a man who realizes she loves her bullets as much as bluebonnets?

About TWISTED DESIRE by Sharon Kay

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and award winning author Sharon Kay comes an exciting collaboration…

Rhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn’t expect. He’s good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.

Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn’t infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.

Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn’t human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.

About NEVER MINE by Megan Mitcham

From New York Times best-selling author Cristin Harber and USA Today best-selling author Megan Mitcham comes an exciting collaboration…

Jillian Cooper never wanted Callum, until a dream morphs him from her best friend’s husband to a singular nocturnal fantasy. Revolted by her own mind and loyal to a fault, she refuses to give the dream life. Still, it manages to make her awkward around her only family; Amery, Callum, and their two stunning daughters. As an orphan and an Explosive Ordinance Tech with the Navy, things have a way of crashing down around her. The world crumbling call came in the form of a single car, single fatality accident. Amery died.

While she spins in dizzying circles, the girls she’s loved since they were in their momma’s belly cling to her. When Callum’s strong arms fortify them and keep them all from falling apart, Jillian’s inner struggle reaches a breaking point. She does the only thing she can to honor her friend’s memory…run to the other side of the world to contract for Titan Group, an elite private securities force in need of an EOD.

Callum Bradfield adapts and overcomes. Even after the tragic death of his wife, his core values as a Navy SEAL march him forward…to safer waters. His gig as mission transport for Base Branch—the special operations force for the UN—isn’t as adrenaline laden, but he refuses to make his girls orphans.

Things are beginning to regroup when Jillian bales on his girls—and him—without a word. To ensure she’s safe, he hacks her personal information and follows the crumbs into Titan’s database. Crossing that line gets them both under a microscope in the middle of a desert, searching for the proof they need to show their innocence, while he tries to convince Jillian he’s more than just her dream.

As a former Army Ranger, I get the job done.

reviewfbknotty1

You know, I wasn’t too sure how I’d like this book. Military romances can be give or take with me depending on the writer, and this is actually my first book by Caitlyn. I’ll definitely be reading more! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The characters were three-dimensional, the writing was superb. I loved the interplay between Declan and Allison.

Declan was a Special forces Major who’s teammate betrayed him and caused chaos and devastation in his wake. Declan, being in charge, still feels guilty over all of this. He has formed a special elite black ops group known as the Shadow Alliance. FBI agent Allison Davies hunts Declan down while he and the team are helping flood victims to question him about the teammate who betrayed him. But it seems Allison is after him for reasons other than an on=the-books operation, and Declan plans on finding out why. But then they both wind up needing to be kept safe from the same enemy.

This was a great book, and I’m glad I got in at the beginning of the series, because I’m most definitely going along for the ride with this one!

This book gets 5 Special Forces Orgasms

EXCERPT

“I want to know about you.  I want to know what makes you tick.  What makes you happy.  I want to know about Allison Davies.  Is that so wrong?”

“I guess not,” she said hesitantly.

“We read the same books.  Well, I don’t read the bare-chested men books.  But that one that you re-read…I might have to buy that one.”  She hit me on the arm.  I’d hit a nerve.

I pressed closer until her breasts were against my chest.  Heavenly.  Her nipples hardened.  Pulling her hips close to my body, I bent to nuzzle her neck, and drink in her scent.  Fuck, she smelled good.  Peaches again.  I didn’t even realize my hands had moved until I felt the soft flesh of her tits.  Oh God, had my dick ever been this hard?

But I needed to take it slow.  Whether she knew it or not, she’d just admitted that plants were too big of a commitment for her.  I didn’t want to rush her into sex, not until we’d broken down a few more barriers.  But there was no way I was going to deny myself another kiss.

“Declan, please.”

“I’m here, baby.”  I brushed my thumb across the edge of her bangs and looked into the midnight depths of her eyes.  I kissed her nose and was rewarded with a languid smile.  Taking her hand, I guided her out to the living room.  I sat down in the corner of the couch, and drew her onto my lap, she curled up like a kitten.

“You’re so beautiful.”

She looked down and tried to hide her face with her hair.  I tucked it behind her ear and trailed kisses along her cheek.  “So beautiful.”

She shook her head.  I kissed the tear that formed.

“Ah, honey.  You make me ache.  I watch you, and I want you.  Your eyes draw me in and take my breath away.”

She shook her head again, but I could tell she was listening.

“I told Conroy to buy you that blue dress so it would match your eyes.”

Her breath caught, and she looked at me.

“You were an absolute mess.  Nothing but a camp bath.  But when you took the dress out of the shopping bag, I couldn’t erase the vision of you wearing it.  Do you know what I did?”

She shook her head, and I hesitated, but her eyes were so shy and hopeful.

“I jerked off in the shower imagining you in that dress, Allie.”

“You did not.”

I kissed the tip of her nose.  “Did too.”

She giggled.

“Can I kiss you now?”

She wound her arms around my neck.  “I want to kiss you.”

I waited.  Her mouth parted, and she licked her plump lips.  Jesus, I thought I might die.  She pulled my head downwards, and I dove in.  So soft, so perfect.  And there was that electric shock again as we touched.  She shivered.  I stroked her long hair, and she moaned as our tongues met.

I traced her jaw, her skin was so soft and her mouth flowered open, allowing me to explore further.  My hand moved to cup the back of her head and slid down to the bow that tied her dress.  I hesitated.

No, Declan.

Yes, Declan.

By the time, the ‘Yes, Declan’ had been said, the bow was untied, and blue silk was drifting downwards.

She whimpered.

“Are you okay?” I whispered against her wet lips.  She nodded.

“Words, baby.”

“Yes.”

My hand cupped the silky texture of her breast, so warm and soft.  I rolled her nipple between my fingers.

“Ahhh.”  Her head fell back against the arm of the sofa.  I bent and suckled.  She gripped my head.  Pressing me harder against the hard tip.  She whimpered again, and I looked up.  Her lips were open and shiny.  I needed another kiss.

I surged upwards and took her mouth and plundered.  My head spun.  She moaned.

Oh God, this is not what I wanted for her.  Not yet.  I needed to slow things down because I couldn’t be trusted.  I pulled away, then kissed her eyelids, and then her nose.

I tied her dress.  Then because I couldn’t resist, I kissed her mouth again.

“Are you sure?” she asked.

“I need more time to savor you, love.  But know that this is killing me.  I’ve never had a more beautiful woman in my arms.”

She rolled her eyes.

I pinched her butt.

“You listen to me and believe me when I call you beautiful.  That’s the new rule.”

“Fine.”  She sighed.  “But if I forget, you have to kiss me.”  I loved that little bit of self-confident sass.

Book Blurb:

With a gun and a duffel bag full of cash, Moriah Jensen is on the run from the police and ruthless drug dealers. She’d fled Chicago after her family was murdered and has spent the past four months trying to stay alive. Using an alias, she has bounced around from town to town, state to state, trying to stay at least a few steps ahead of the people chasing her.

KC Malone is on a two-week leave from his Navy SEAL team when he arrives at his uncle’s beach house to find a beautiful woman pointing a gun at his chest. What the hell had he just walked in on?

When the two become reluctant, temporary housemates, KC offers to train Moriah to defend herself against an alleged abusive ex-boyfriend. But then her past catches up with her and Moriah has to decide between her love for KC and running for safety. To stay would risk both their lives. To run would mean leaving her heart behind.

Review:

Somebody pass me a towel, or a fan, because this is some hot stuff. Nuclear even! Samantha A. Cole writes some steamy, sexy, action filled suspenseful romance filled with those hot alphas we love so much. This book is a bit more tame and vanilla than the Trident Security books, but the sex scenes are still just as panty-wetting.

The action starts from the beginning as Moriah Jensen is on the run from mob members for stealing a duffel full of cash and a gun. She’s managed to find a beach side house to rent for a while and lay low.

KC is a Navy SEAL just off a long assignment. He has a nice, long, R&R coming up and he wants to spend it at his Uncle Dan’s beach house. He isn’t prepared for the surprise  waiting for him in the house.

KC and Moriah come together, and he offers to train her in self-defense and how to shoot. Moriah has told KC that she’s fleeing from an abusive boyfriend, but he soon suspects there’s something more. As roommates become lovers, Moriah has to decide whether to come clean or keep him safe by fleeing again. You’ll want to grab a copy of Take the Money and Run to see what happens!

I loved this book! Definitely another for my keeper pile, and this author is on my automatic buy list for sure. She writes stories that keep you riveted from word one with yummy alpha heroes, sassy heroines, and exciting, sexy storylines that keep you from ever putting your e-reader down.

This is a 5 Orgasm Read

Blurb:
Cookie “Hunter” Knox was good at his job, infiltrating behind enemy lines was one of his specialties. His SEAL team relied on him to do his job, just as he relied on them to do theirs. Ever since two of his teammates found a woman that completed them, their dangerous Ops seemed a bit more intense. Cookie knew if he had a woman who belonged to him, he’d never let her go. Little did he know the SEAL team’s latest mission to Mexico would change his life forever.

Fiona Storm resigned herself to the fact that it was highly unlikely she would make it out of the jungle alive. Kidnapped by human traffickers, abused, and without family or friends looking for her, Fiona knew wishing for rescue was as realistic as having a big, juicy hamburger fall from the sky. Unbeknownst to Fiona, the SEAL team, including Cookie, were on the way, but their assignment didn’t consist of rescuing her.

Review:

Susan Stoker’s novels are something I’ve quickly become addicted to, much like any drug. They are well written, and keep me glued to my e-reader from start to finish. This one even had me in tears a few times because it was so emotional. Lucky me, I still have quite a few books to go, and I promise I’ll bring everyone along for the journey!

Hunter “Cookie” Knox is on a mission with his SEAL team to rescue a privileged Senator’s daughter from human traffickers in mexico. But when Cookie goes to leave the filthy hut with the spoiled princess, he finds another prisoner at the far end of the hut, in far worse shape than the one he’s sent to rescue.

Fiona wasn’t expecting to be rescued, even when the big, handsome man came to rescue the other prisoner, she figured he wasn’t there for her. But he took her anyway, and she manages a trek through the jungle in horrible shape, impressing Cookie to no end. He never knew he’d end up needing her.

When they are safe at home, the terror for Fiona doesn’t end there. But this time, she has Cookie in her corner. Cookie just can’t leave Fiona’s side, and he doesn’t want to. But what happens when he has to?  See all these answers and more when you read for your very own.

Just another truly remarkable book in the SEAL of protection series, and since I skipped Abe’s book, I’ll be going back soon! But this book definitely gets a 5 Orgasm SEAL of Approval!

Starting this month, Knotty Girl Reviews will be recognizing outstanding books. While pretty much most of the books I select to read are pretty amazing, sometimes a book will stand out for its content, writing, and the emotions it brings out in the reviewer. This month’s selection, Protecting Caroline is one of those books.

From page one of this book, I knew it was something special. I have reviewed some of Susan Stoker’s books previously and I positively love them. What’s not to love about alpha military men who not only protect our country, but treat women with respect, kindness, and just plain hot sex.

Caroline is a plain, unassuming woman who is on her way to Norfolk, Virginia to start a new job as a chemist. Men don’t notice her…at all. When she notices the big, muscle-bound hunk sitting next to her in the middle seat of the plane, obviously uncomfortable, she switches seats with him.

Wolf is used to women coming on to him. On his way to Norfolk to visit an old SEAL teammate with two of his other teammates, he’s stuck in a too small middle seat. When plain Caroline switches seats with him, he wonders what her angle is. But when he realizes she was just being nice, he starts talking to her. Caroline starts to notice odd things on the plane, and when she gets her drink, she smells something off with the ice. She stops Wolf, who she insists on calling Matthew, from drinking his and tells him something is wrong. From there, they manage to stop a terrorist take over.

The next day, they realize Caroline slept in the airport. When she brushes them off, Wolf angrily stalks off, but the eagle eyes of a teammate realize something is wrong. Caroline was hurt during the terrorist takeover. She ends up on the transport, and from there, Wolf and the team realize just how amazing Caroline is. But the drama doesn’t end here. Someone has told the other terrorists that Caroline was the one who figured them out. Now, her life is in danger. From there, the excitement keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

At some points, my hands were actually shaking. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with Wolf and Caroline. Susan Stoker brings the reader right into the story and right along for the tumultuous ride. And the kicker? Nah, I’ll let you find out for your self. You just HAVE to read this book. And I recommend you keep right on going with the rest of the series. I am.

I give this book my very special Multi-Orgasm (Think of it as 10 stars!!!)
