Sunday Spotlight: Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti

Posted October 8, 2017 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 3 Comments

Sunday Spotlight is a feature we began in 2016. This year we’re spotlighting our favorite books, old and new. We’ll be  raving about the books we love and being total fangirls. You’ve been warned. 🙂

Sunday Spotlight

I am loving dystopian romance right now. There are several authors that write it and Rebecca Zanetti is one of my favorites. I’ve been waiting for Grey and Moe’s book for awhile and I know it won’t disappoint. If you are wanting to give the post-apocalyptic world a try, you won’t go wrong with the Scorpius Syndrome series! Isn’t the cover hot?

Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti
Series: Scorpius Syndrome
Genres: Dystopian/Post-Apocalpyse Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2017
Publisher: RAZ INK LLC

Even before surviving the Scorpius bacterium, Greyson Storm was a lone wolf navigating minefields. As a kid, he learned to take a hit and find safety. As an adult, he joined the military and quickly learned how to protect and defend. When the world ended, he created a mercenary camp with military precision, no entanglements, and a promise to avenge a fallen friend. As part of that vow, he kidnapped Maureen Shadow, but now that he has let her go, her blue eyes and intriguing mind keep haunting him…

As possibly the only Biotechnology Engineer still living, Maureen Shadow might be humanity’s one hope to survive the aftermath of Scorpius, making her frighteningly valuable to both allies and enemies. Even after sexual tension explodes with Greyson, she’s not sure which camp he belongs to—friend or foe? Worse yet, survival may mean thwarting his prime mission, putting her in even more peril. When danger and seduction collide, there is no safety in this new world.

Excerpt

Clouds covered the moon and threw rain onto the sand, but the chill was serving to finally focus Greyson. He made it to the deck before he noticed that Moe’s outside doors were open. Soft candlelight filtered outside. What the hell?

He paused.

She stood in the doorway, watching the storm pummel the ocean. The candles lit her from behind, making her hair glow. Those blue eyes cut through the darkness somehow.

He moved for her, unable to stop himself. “Your doors should be closed.”

She jumped and then pivoted. “Greyson.”

Was that relief in her voice? He stepped closer. “Did you hear me?”

She crossed her arms. “I’m not deaf.” Her voice slurred a little.

“Okay.” He wanted her to smile again like she’d done the other day. Just once. “I’m sorry I had to kidnap you.”

She huffed out air. “You didn’t have to do anything.”

Yeah, that was true. “You look like an angel with the candles behind you.”

She swayed. “Greyson.”

Man, his brain was screwed up. Too much booze and fighting. So he reached for the door. “Go inside, Moe. I’ll lock up.”

“No.” She pushed at him.

No? He didn’t move. “Yes.”

She stepped into him. “You like me.”

The scent of wild bluebells covered him, tempting him. His body went from zero to a hundred in a second flat, and his cock woke up like it had a place to go. “I do like you,” he mumbled, wishing she’d stop splitting into two people in front of his eyes.

She ran her hands up his chest. “I don’t want to like you.”

“Don’t blame you.” Her hands created too much warmth. Man, he wanted to be warm. Step back. He really needed to step back.

She leaned up and nibbled beneath his chin.

Desire cut through him with a painful sharpness. “We can’t.”

“I know,” she whispered, pressing her full breasts against his chest. “Kiss me, just once.”

He couldn’t say no. So he lowered his mouth, taking hers. Sweetness. She made a sound, one he’d never forget, in the back of her throat. Then she kissed him back.

At that point, he was lost. Completely.

Greyson. sigh

Monthly Reads: September 2017

Posted October 3, 2017 by Holly in Features, Giveaways | 7 Comments

MR-New

Casee: None books. I just want you all to know I haven’t disappeared. I think I need book therapy.

Holly: September was a strange reading month for me. I started out craving contemporary romance and ended up reading most of Julie Garwood’s historical backlist.

The Will by Kirsten Ashley (reread) | 4 out of 5
Soaring by Kristen Ashely (reread) | 4 out of 5
The Time In Between by Kristen Ashley (reread) | 3.75 out of 5
Whiskey Sharp: Unraveled by Lauren Dane | 4 out of 5
The Secret by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Ransom by Julie Garwood (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
The Prize by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
The Bride by Julie Garwood (reread) | 3.5 out of 5
The Wedding by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
The Lion’s Lady by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4 out of 5
Castles by Julie Garwood (reread) | 3.25 out of 5
Honor’s Splendour by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.25 out of 5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood (reread) | 4.5 out of 5
The Kingpin of Camelot by Cassandra Gannon | 4.25 out of 5
Temporary by Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry | 3.75 out of 5

Aside from re-reads, my favorite read of the month was The Kingpin of Camelot. It was so much fun. I can’t recommend it enough if you’re in the mood for something light and sweet. King Midas 4Ever! I didn’t really have a least favorite this month. I didn’t enjoy Temporary as much as I thought I would, but it was still a good read.

Rowena: September means summer has officially come to an end and the school year has begun and with a new school year brings football! My family finally has someone playing under the Friday night lights and that’s where I’ve been spending most of my Friday nights.

I did manage to get some reading done. Loads more than I thought I would. Check it out.

The Final Score (Play by Play #13) by Jaci Burton | 4 out of 5
If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout | 4 out of 5
Chasing Christmas Eve (Heartbreakers Bay #4) by Jill Shalvis | 4 out of 5
Duke of My Heart (Season for Scandal #1) by Kelly Bowen | 3 out of 5
The Wedding (Laird’s Fiancees #2) by Julie Garwood | 4.75 out of 5
The Prize by Julie Garwood | 4.75 out of 5
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood | 5 out of 5
Ransom (Highland’s Laird #2) by Julie Garwood | 4.5 out of 5
Only with You (The Best Mistake #1) by Lauren Layne | 4.25 out of 5
Made for You (The Best Mistake #2) by Lauren Layne | 4.25 out of 5
Ready for Wild (Grand Valley #3) by Liora Blake | 4 out of 5

My favorite reads of the month are probably my Julie Garwood re-reads because those will always be my comfort reads and I loved them just as much this time around as I have the other times I’ve read them. The Prize, The Wedding, Saving Grace and Ransom are just damn good reads. My favorite of my new to me reads were Made for You and Only with You by Lauren Layne. Those books were great, quick reads that just hit me in my feels. Both heroes wrapped me up in heart eyes and I just adored their stories.

My least favorite read was Duke of My Heart by Kelly Bowen. It was a good story but I didn’t connect with it nearly as much as I did the other books.

This month we’re giving away:

The Kingpin of Camelot by Cassandra Gannon
Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis
