A twist of spice keeps this festive romance on track

Mr. Frosty Pants (Home for the Holidays, #1)Mr. Frosty Pants by Leta Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As ever with a Leta Blake romance the narrative has a twist of spice to go with the sugar and an undertone of bite which brings human frailties along with the love.

Joel was a complex and complicated character who had only firm convictions of his lack of worthiness to keep his emotions banked hot and the fires in his belly alive.

I loved reading how Casey’s unwavering commitment – once he had decided that he was just as much in love with Joel as he had been four years earlier – began to break down the ice he’d covered his heart with.

As Joel melted into his relationship with Casey, so did my feelings for this prickly young man.

Although this is a young/new adult romance, with the characters just 22, I do honestly believe they had the love and the legs to be a forever love.

Oh and first-time virgin everything in the talented pen of Leta – not only powerfully emotional but also quite deliciously sensual too.

Book Blitz: Dark Arts And A Daiquiri by Annette Marie

Dark Arts and a Daiquiri | Annette Marie

The Guild Codex: Spellbound #2

Publication date: November 16th 2018

Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

When I found myself facing down the scariest black-magic felon in the city, practically daring him to abduct me, I had to wonder exactly how I ended up here.

It all started when I accidentally landed a job as a bartender—but not at a bar.

At a guild, populated by mages, sorcerers, alchemists, witches, and psychics. Good thing this lame-o human is adaptable, right?

Then my favorite guild members—three sexy, powerful, and intermittently charming mages—asked for my help.

Did they want access to my encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails? Oh no. They wanted to wrap me up in a pretty ribbon and plunk me in the crosshairs of a murderous rogue to lure him out of hiding.

So that’s what we did. And that’s why I’m here. About to be kidnapped. Oh, and our grand plan for safely capturing said murderous rogue? Yeah, that completely fell apart about two minutes ago.

Why did I agree to this again?

Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

Tori has no problem getting herself into trouble in every book in the Guild Codex series, but each one is a complete adventure—no cliffhanger endings.

Author Bio:

Annette Marie is the author of Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series Steel & Stone, its prequel trilogy Spell Weaver, and romantic fantasy trilogy Red Winter.

Her first love is fantasy, but fast-paced adventures and tantalizing forbidden romances are her guilty pleasures. She lives in the frozen winter wasteland of Alberta, Canada (okay, it’s not quite that bad) with her husband and their furry minion of darkness—sorry, cat—Caesar.

When not writing, she can be found elbow-deep in one art project or another while blissfully ignoring all adult responsibilities.

Gorgeous new adult romance from Kaje Harper

Fair Isn't LifeFair Isn’t Life by Kaje Harper

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kaje Harper wrote one of my most favourite MM historical romances  Into Deep Waters – and now she’s just added to that with this excellent contemporary new adult romance.

It’s surprisingly sexy for a Dreamspinner Press States of Love entry and I loved the care and devotion Mason offered up to Luke as he slowly introduced him to all the many ways two men can be intimate in a relationship without having full penetration.

(Don’t worry, it eventually gets there too and the scene is beautifully done.)

This level of care is extended throughout the narrative as two former school friends meet again after life has hammered one of them almost to breaking point.

Both characters also break the often overused stereotypes of ‘jock type’ and smaller, more femme MC, and I loved seeing Luke just hand over all responsibilities to Mason because he had trust in him to not steer him wrong.

This is just all over a truly sweet romance.

Book Blitz: Never Touched by Laney Wylde

Never Touched | Laney Wylde

Published by: Crimson Tree Publishing

Publication date: November 12th 2018

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

What if you woke up from your worst nightmare, only to find the world watching it? On repeat . With relish.

What if those viewers found you? Cornered you until you performed the nightmare live?

Would you run? Fight?

Or charge admittance?

This is Sawyer’s reality. She’s a survivor—gritty and determined—but the struggle to put it all behind her is something that’s with her every second of every day. Her abuser is in jail now, but he’ll never truly let her go.

When she tries to shelter in something good, the darkness inevitably follows. The effects of the abuse flow through her life like ripples of pain in this raw, at times darkly comedic, coming-of-age saga that explores what it means to survive the unthinkable—and find the courage to rise up and keep fighting.

Please Note: Story contains graphic sexual content, including mentions of abuse. Strong language throughout.

Author Bio:

Laney Wylde is enamored with all things southern California–the traffic, smog, surprise earthquakes, and nonindigenous palm trees.

Consequently, it’s the landscape her strong and sometimes lovable female leads paint their stories on. Her New Adult novels Never Touched and the After Twelve series are bright with provocative themes, steamy romance, and inappropriately timed humor.

When Laney isn’t writing, she’s singing Taylor Swift with her little boy or asking her husband not to tell her about his work as a surgical resident while she’s eating.

She daydreams about using her math degree to get into law school, then realizes that would be too much work and that she should just play pretend court on paper instead. While she loves a good book, nothing beats 30 Rock with a bag of popcorn and M&Ms.
