Synopsis
The Connections series continues with this spin-off novel.

He didn’t think, he didn’t question—he just acted.
What she wanted, she took—without regard.
It was only one night, but it changed everything.

After losing his fiancĂ©e, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But when he sees Bell Wilde, he’s so deeply drawn to her, that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting this spark between them...or maybe it’s his second chance at love.

Bell has just gotten her life back on track and may not be up for the challenge of Ben Covington. But once they’re reunited, there’s no holding back—even if a secret from Bell’s past just might shatter them both.

FRAGILE REIGN

We're thrilled to help reveal the cover for FRAGILE REIGN (Mortal Enchantment #2) by Stacey O'Neale! Check out the cover below, and let us know what you think in the comments. Then be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $100 Amazon or B&N gift card!



Details about the cover, from author Stacey O'Neale:

In case you're curious about the cover, the model represents Marcus. The background represents the woodland court and the caves at the bottom are where the members of the royal family live. I chose caves because the woodland court protects the forests of the world. I didn't think they would choose to cut down trees to make a castle, so the massive caves worked out nicely. If you zoom in, you can see where the doors and windows are cut out. The inside is very lavish. If you read FRAGILE REIGN, you'll learn all about it.
FRAGILE REIGN (Mortal Enchantment #2) by Stacey O'Neale | November 18, 2014

It’s been a week since all hell broke loose…

Rumors of King Taron’s weakened powers have left the air court vulnerable. Kalin is desperate to awaken her akasha powers, except she doesn’t know how. Tension within the court is at an all-time high. Pressure is mounting for her to ascend to the throne, but a halfling has never ruled over any court. To solidify her position, the council has advised her to marry Sebastian—a high ranking air elemental she’s never met and her betrothed.

Will Kalin sacrifice her relationship with Rowan to strengthen her court?

Rowan and Marcus return to a fire court in turmoil. Liana’s death has fueled the fire elementals’ distrust against the air and woodland courts. The unbalanced elements have set off natural disasters all over the mortal world. Rowan takes the throne to restore balance, promising to unite the fire court. But not all elementals are happy with his leadership. Many are secretly loyal to Valac, which means Rowan needs to find allies for his cause.

Can Rowan unify the court of fire before the elements destroy the world?

Amazon Final


It's Christmas morning and June Evans is wondering how a vacation in search of a white Christmas led her to having a hot and hard man moving between her trembling thighs.

Tom Allen was meant to be spending a quiet holiday with his family, but a freak snowstorm traps him with what he wanted most this year, a chance at love.

playlist


excerpt
1 AWHCPlaylist
"Oh God!" I gasp loudly with pleasure, as the man above me moves in long, hard and possessive strokes.

I'm only half aware of my surroundings and of the Nor’easter still raging outside. Somewhere nearby fire embers crackle loudly, wind whistles and bare branches knock on the windowpanes.

In this moment, the only things that matter are the soft warm bed beneath me and the man above, who’s pounding white hot pleasure into me.

As I become enveloped in sensation, my thighs begin to shake from where they are wrapped tightly around his back. My newly manicured nails dig into his back and my last coherent thought as I fall into the oblivion is, "How the hell did I get here?"

The Winter People

The Winter People 
by Rebekah L. Purdy

Book: Stand Alone
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pub Date: Sept 2 2014

Book Links:
Goodreads  Amazon

An engrossing, complex, romantic fantasy perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore or Maggie Stiefvater, set in a wholly unique world.

Salome Montgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. Haunted by the voices and images of the strange beings that pulled her to safety, she hasn't forgotten their warning to "stay away." For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. But when failing health takes her grandparents to Arizona, she is left in charge of maintaining their estate. This includes the "special gifts" that must be left at the back of the property.
 


Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin, who she finds trespassing on her family’s property. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, his interactions with Salome take her life in a new direction. A direction where she'll have to decide between her longtime crush Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. Or Nevin who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop. An evil that, given the chance, will kill her.

My Review: Salome had done well to avoid the winter woods. But after being in charge of her grandparent's home, she is about to head back to those woods. Salome has magic around her all the time and she is about to jump into that world. 


Doing her chores that her grandma wants her to do, it leads her into the woods. She does it because she asked, no matter how much the winter has scarred her. There is also three guys we get to meet and you can probably imagine the love triangle. The good guy, the bad guy, the protective one, the mysterious one. You know the usual. But, these three guys were better developed than some I have read in a love triangle, so Rebekah did a super awesome job with that! She feels for each guy, but which one would be the best? Who can she go to when the voices are stronger and she has no idea what to do and how to deal with it. 

Salome doesn't exactly get a break here. She already fears winter, and now this winter she may lose her life if she doesn't stay focused. Having a family curse can really suck. Salome has to take all the fight she has a make it through the winter, or just let it take her life. Salome is an amazing character and I loved watching her become strong and pull through everything. Despite the past about what winter has done to her, and no matter what, you'll feel for her and keep rooting until the very end. Plus, it could have gone smoother if the boys would just tell her everything right away. They knew so much about this world and it wasn't far to keep her in the dark about things. Salome is the one who has everything riding on her, so why not just spill! I mean come on people. I swear guys like driving us crazy and never say things right off the bat, at least never the super important stuff. 

Oh well...I loved this whole book. I may have lost sleep just because I didn't want to put the book down, but once I was in, it was just hard to leave this world. Rebekah did an awesome job and I can't wait to see what else she can write up!


I give it 4.5 stars!

Rules of the Game by Elaine Raco Chase

"You need an attitude adjustment!" Samantha Logan told Adam Rourke.

She didn't care that he was rich, she didn't care that he was handsome, and she didn't care that her boss was his surrogate father.

She tried to ignore the fact that his deep voice hit her behind the knees and made her feel oddly off balance. And she was sure those heart palpitations were the result of drinking two five-hour energy drinks in less than thirty minutes and definitely not from a pair of broad shoulders, green eyes and a sexy stubble.

The Sexperts: The Girl With the Pearl Necklace by Melinda DuChamp

In the future, some people are still prudes...

And the most prudish of all are the righteous defenders of righteousness at the Purity Foundation.

Fanny and Peter, along with new instructors Chastity and Milo, have devoted their lives to ensuring everyone can enjoy a healthy, prosperous sex life.

She understands his emotional attachment, but she has poured her life into its survival and has more at stake than anyone knows...

With Luke battling a skyrocketing career and the medically unknown and Amy terrified to look over her shoulder at all times, it is no wonder that sparks fly when they meet. However, can their hearts, and their careers, survive the secrets they've been keeping?
