::Synopsis::

“Cambridge isn’t very big, and Ben is a wealthy, handsome man. Of course we all know who he is. On top of that, he’s an absolute kinky man-whore!”

American preschool teacher Jane Andrews travels to Cambridge, England and meets the enigmatic Ben Hunt, a wealthy explorer who lives on the edge, both in the art world and in his erotic exploits.

Will the smoldering Ben Hunt be able to light a fire inside the innocent Jane?

Their path is full of twists and turns, relentlessly pursued by those who would stop at nothing to possess what they desire. Nothing is as it seems, and dark secrets from the past threaten to destroy them both. Trust no one, she was warned from the grave, and it soon becomes clear to Jane that this includes the charismatic man she is falling for.

Trust No One…

Due to strong language and frequent, explicit sexual scenes, The Hunt for Eros is intended for mature audiences only, 18 years and older. This is a standalone romantic erotica novel of approximately 57,000 words with a happily ever after ending.

Contains frequent profanity, voyeurism, multiple partners, group scenes, mild bondage, oral, anal, and exhibitionism. This is not a BDSM novel.

I rated this book 4 ****’s 

A very unique art treasure hunt

I LOVE the settings of this book. London is one of my top bucket list. This book is very adventurous and educational as well.

It is a very unique art treasure hunt. It is fun, sexy and hot. It is very funny as well. There are many laugh out loud moments and breathless too. It is also a beautiful story of family and trust. Fulfilling a very unexpected dream.

I loved this book. I highly recommend it if you love arts and travel.

::Excerpt::

I made it back to Mrs. Carr’s, soaking wet and freezing. She was standing outside her front door smoking and waved me into the main house. Sinking into the worn velvet sofa, a very fat gray cat immediately took up residence on my soggy lap. Mrs. Carr poured two tumblers of an amber-colored liquor and handed me one before sitting across from me on a small chair.

“Now dear, you must take better care of yourself. You need a proper mac.”

“A mac?”

“A raincoat, love.”

“Does the rain ever stop, Mrs. Carr?”

She shook her head at me as if the question was ludicrous. “No, it does not. The English should have webbed feet!” She laughed a loud belly-laugh, robust enough to startle the cat nestled into my lap.

“I’m supposed to find some work of art for my uncle’s estate, but I have no idea where to begin. The solicitor sent me to talk to Ben Hunt at the Fitzwilliam and he wouldn’t—”

“Ben Hunt! Now there’s a fine piece of man-meat. If I were thirty years younger I’d fuck that man sideways!” I gasped at her admission, surprised she even knew who he was.

“You know him?” I took a tiny sip of the strong-smelling liquor in my tumbler—I’m not much of a drinker. It was so strong that I nearly spat it out, but ended up getting it down and enjoyed the warm feeling it gave my chilled body as it slid down.

“Cambridge isn’t very big, and Ben is a wealthy, handsome man. Of course we all know who he is. On top of that, he’s an absolute kinky man-whore!”

I nodded, sipping more of the liquor in my tumbler, feeling less of the bite this time and more of the warmth. “Yes, I saw some of that firsthand, but he never even looked at the photo of the statue I’m supposed to find. I have no idea where to turn next. I don’t even have the photo anymore; I lost my only copy on the way back from the museum.”

“Ben’s mentor, Sean Devane, is a professor at King’s College here in Cambridge. If Ben won’t help, find a way to get your photo back and try Sean. He’s no Ben Hunt, but he’s a handsome old devil—I’d shag him.” She laughed hard again, causing the cat on my lap to flee as if shot at.

::About Sam JD Hunt::

Sam J.D. Hunt resides in Las Vegas with her husband, the inspiration for the young Thomas Hunt character, as well as her two children. Her debut trilogy, The Thomas Hunt Series, put a fun and unique spin on the popular BDSM genre. She followed up with the highly successful DEEP: A Captive Tale–a dark BDSM erotic captor/captive story about a pirate and his lady that spans time and space. Her fourth novel, the full-length standalone The Hunt for Eros is an erotic art adventure that combines spicy romance with a cultural adventure based on true life events. It has been described as being like The Da Vinci Code, but with lots of heat added.

Hunt’s next release was co-written with her husband. Dagger: American Fighter Pilot is a steamy contemporary romance, which follows a squadron of fighter pilots as part of the American Fighter Pilot read-in-any-order series. Following the release of Dagger, Hunt released the much-anticipated MMF/Bi/Ménage erotic adventure, Taken by Two. Next, Hunt plans to release DEEPER: Capture of the Virgin Bride as a follow-up to DEEP. When not writing, Hunt enjoys travel, community involvement, spending time with friends and family, and hiking. She spends her days writing and trying to answer the age-old question: is it too late for coffee or too early for wine?

Fall in love with Sam Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He’s fast, focused, and determined—and never at a loss for a willing woman to share his time with. The trouble is, the only woman he wants refuses him at every turn.

Physician assistant Faith Hayes escaped her painful past and built a safe, happy life in Peaceful Harbor. She’s also put what she’s learned to good use helping others by founding Women Against Cheaters, an online support group. When her boss’s sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn’t want, and she’s determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn’t have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it’s Faith who’s left with something to prove.

The Berlin Package Book By Peter Riva

Film producer Pero Baltazar thought he was taking a Berlin filming assignment. He needed the work, needed to get back in the saddle after fighting off a life-threatening experience in East Africa—alShabaab had attacked his crew, intent on a much larger terrorist attack. Suddenly he finds himself under orders from his part-time employers at the State Department and the CIA when he is handed a mysterious package. It’s an assignment he doesn’t want. The problem is, it’s a job contracted by mysterious patrons who are prepared to kill him if he doesn’t deliver.

 photo The Berlin Package_zpsi6cwut7h.jpg

Pero—now in far too deep—turns to friends, old and new, to help him unravel the mystery of the package, uncover connections to Nazi concentration camp gold recently sold by the US Treasury, and thwart the ex–Stasi chief, now head of a powerful banking group.

In this fast-paced sequel to Murder on Safari, Pero calls on Mbuno, his friend and East African safari guide, to anticipate the moves of his enemies as if they were animals—dangerous vermin—who have kidnapped both the film star and director. Mbuno’s tracking skills may keep them from getting killed—provided Pero can rope in more help and keep the CIA at bay.

Exhilarating and expertly crafted, The Berlin Package (Yucca Publishing; April 2016) is a gripping, page-turning thriller set in post–German reunification Europe.

Praise for Berlin Package

“An explosive radioactive thriller written with intelligence. . . . The reluctant spy motif works grandly. . . . An extremely thoughtful and terrifying exposure of the dangers inherent in a nuclear world.”

 —Ron Lealos, author of Pashtun and Don’t Mean Nuthin’

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

A heart thumping sequel

I am blessed to have an opportunity to read Mr. Peter Riva’s book The Berlin Package. It is a heart thumping sequel from his previous book Murder On Safari. Just like the first book, I loved reading this book as well. 

The first few chapters are slow to prepare you for the real thrill as you read along. The adventure never stops until you reach the last page of the book. I love the twist and turn of this story. It is never a dull moment once you are in the best part. The book is hard to put it down. From Africa to Germany, the author blown me away with his travels. It feels like you are part of his adventures and the characters of his book. 

I highly recommend this book. Mr. Peter Riva never stop to amazes with his trailer and suspense book which I loved to read.

City & Suzy are back!

I had everything I ever wanted—a wife, a kid, with two more on the way. I was living the American dream. After the babies were born, we hit a rough patch. I did everything to prove my love, to show Suzy that nothing was more important than her. After some work and a lot of time, we found our groove again. Just when life had evened out, a familiar enemy came back to haunt us. It wasn’t my past that followed us, but my brother’s. When the danger gets too close, I’ll do anything to defend my family. There’s nothing more important than the people I love, and I’ll protect what’s mine—even if it costs me my life.

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

The family that stays together stay forever

I fall in-love with Suzy and City on the first book. Since then I am hook with Ms. Chelle Bliss. I am so glad that she write another story of Suzy and City thru Honor Me.

This book not only keep their family united but at the same time stronger. The family that stays together stay forever. You will read more of The Gallos’ and their extended family from this book.

It is very sizzling book to read. It also tackles postpartum depression and how to deal with this worst problem after a woman gave birth. It is very funny especially with their eldest daughter Gigi. Their parents also cracked me up. These two never stop to spicy up their marriage despite being old. 

My favorite part is how the family always protect themselves especially the kids. They are always there for each other through thick and thin. This book is very suspense too. Hold on to your eReader while you are reading in that part. 

I LOVED every moment while reading Suzy, City and the rest of The Gallos’. I highly recommend this book.

Excerpt

Suzy glared at me. “What’s this we shit? I’m the one with two aliens inside of me, trying to claw their way out of my body. I’m the only one pushing them out of my tiny vagina. Not you. Not her. Me!” She waved her hands frantically in the air. “I’m the one doing everything while you sit there calm, sexy, and without your body splitting in two. I’m going to be the one tearing wide open as I push two humans and their giant Gallo heads out of my body.” She collapsed, gasping for air, and closed her eyes.

I bit my lip. Pregnant Suzy was unpredictable, but in-labor Suzy was just downright scary. “I know, sugar. You’re doing all the hard work. I’m just here to cheer you on and support you.”

Her nostrils flared and her eyes grew wide when she glanced up. “Support me? If you want to support me, you’ll never knock me up again. You want to cheer me on?” She rolled her eyes and made a noise low in her throat. “Stop fucking talking.”

I braced myself, waiting for her head to do a 360. I brought my mouth right next to her ear. “My sweet little wife, you beg for my cock every day. It takes two to tango, sweetheart. I didn’t put you in that bed.” I lowered my voice further, whispering, “Your sweet little cunt did.”

She closed her eyes again and moaned. “You’re just too damn good. I can’t keep my hands to myself. It’s still your fault, my dear husband.”

I couldn’t hold it in any longer. I burst into laughter. “Now, I fuck you too good?”

“Yes!” she screeched, pounding her fist on the crappy, plastic hospital bed. “If you weren’t so good at it, I wouldn’t be lying here right now.”

Just as I was about to reply, the nurse walked in. “I hear someone is ready to push.” Her voice was so chipper, kind of like my wife’s used to sound like before pregnancy. “Are we excited?” she asked, moving a tray of instruments next to the foot of the bed.

“I just want this over. I’m so freaking uncomfortable.”

“That makes two of us,” I muttered and nodded at the nurse with a fake smile on my face before leaning over and kissing Suzy’s forehead. “Ready, sugar?”

I never wanted to eat Hershey’s Kisses this bad again

Claimed By Love by Ms. Melissa Foster is another amazing series from The Ryders’ brothers. This book is another fun, hot and hopelessly romantic story between Duke and Gabriella that I cannot put my Nook down.

I have read so many books of Ms. Foster but her story always put a smile on my face. It is always different though the characters are related with the other books. You will never get dull reading her writings. You will always get bothered (the best kind) when you read her books. I never wanted to eat Hershey’s Kisses so badly again. No wonder I love munching those tiny chocolates and I get the feeling of Gabriella and Addy every time they eat this chocolates. It melted not just in your mouth.

Duke is another heroine that makes you head fall in-love big time. This guy is not only tall, handsome, successful but carrying his heart on his sleeve. No girl cannot resist his charm and Gabriella is one of them. These two are insatiable. Their intimate scenes are so special that feels like you are in the story. I LOVED it.

It is a heart thumping read

My very first time to read the author’s writing. I LOVED this book Uneven Exchange by Ms. S. K. Derban. It is a heart thumping book to read.

I LOVED reading suspense or mystery. This book never fails me. I cannot put it down. It is so suspense. My heart never stop to beat faster. The scenes seem like so real to read. Druglord and undercover is the main exciting scenes. It makes you breathless.

My first time to read a book like this that the main character has perfect resemblance to a certain person. I can imagine the Mexicans and undercover that I can watch in the news while reading this book. It is so good. The book is funny too. It has also romance. I highly recommended it.

1. How did you do research for your book?

After developing my plot, I met separately with a DEA agent, and police detective. They both provided valuable assistance, and were gracious enough to take my calls when I had follow-up

questions.

2. What made you write a book about a woman working undercover?

My mind is always filled with adventure stories, and working undercover is one of the best. When I write, it is like being able to live in any fantasy I desire.

3. What advice would you give budding writers?

Stop what you are doing right now and go write at least one page! When you finish one book, write another. Do not stop writing even while you are trying to get published. Good writing will find a way!

4. Do you have another profession besides writing?

As a real estate Broker, for a number of years I owned and operated a real estate company. Then, after selling the office, I was recruited to work as the Executive Director for a real estate, tax, law firm. I remain with that firm in the capacity of a consultant, in order to allow more time for writing.

5. What is your next project?

Presently I am working on another mystery romance with the working title of Circumvent. I am hoping for a publication date of Christmas 2016.

6. Do you snack while writing? Favorite snack?

Although I am not a big on snacking, I also get grumpy when I am hungry. To make it worse, I am also lazy, and will grab the easiest thing to open! Instead of being tempted to reach for the chips (one simple chip clip away) I have a container of raw walnuts and almonds at eye level in the refrigerator.

7. If you could go back in time, where would you go?

To Highclere Castle of course! I know this is fiction, but one can dream! Oh how I would love to be a member of the Crawley family in Downton Abbey.

The Immigrant Wife Book By Madhu Bazaz Wangu

As a girl on the brink of womanhood in 1960s India, Shanti Bamzai has big dreams. Rather than enter into an arranged marriage like her sister, Shanti embarks on a journey into the unknown, leaving her family home behind for an education and a chance to chart her own destiny.While India experiences an upheaval of cultural and societal changes as old-world traditions collide with the modern global era, Shanti navigates college, a marriage of her own choosing, and motherhood, fighting a constant battle between the pressures of traditional expectations and her own burning desire to be an artist and an independent woman.A move to America presents exciting new opportunities, but Shanti is disappointed to find herself still hemmed in by the restrictions of her Indian upbringing. As her children become adults and her marriage becomes a shell of what it once was, Shanti must find the courage to step out of her husband’s shadow and into the life she’s always dreamed of.

I rated this book 5 *****’s 

Love conquers all

I LOVED this book so much. It is a very long book. It is all worthy when you finished the entire story. 

I am always an awe with an Indian beauty. I am so glad to learn more about their beliefs and traditions. Shanti is one gorgeous girl with a very rare talent. Though some members of her family disagreed. This girl has dreams and perseverance to reach her dreams. I LOVED her values especially dignity. She is one woman who is very inspiring.

I can relate to some of Shanti’s story especially being an Immigrant myself. It is not easy leaving all your loved ones and adjust to everything.

This book is very special to read. I am sure that most women can relate to Shanti. This book talks about family values, marriage tragedies and everything in between. It is an adventurous book and very emotional too. 

I hate her husband so very much until the end. Shanti is very understanding and compassionate and marvelous as a Mom. If Shanti is an American, she is divorced by now especially of what she has been through with her marriage. I am so glad that her star shines though tragedies strike. She was lost. She is willing to give up everything especially with her husband. Love conquers all and everything went back to happiness with her husband. 

Life is full of surprises with Shanti and her family. This girl has been through a lot and in the end  she become very strong and amazing Immigrant Wife. I highly recommend this book. It is one of a kind.

“Beautiful and lush, The Immigrant Wife takes the reader on one woman’s touching, turmeric-drenched journey from naive but determined art student in India to longing-filled American wife and mother. The author Madhu B. Wangu has written a maharaja’s banquet for the senses.” – (RITA Award Winning Author) Gwyn Cready

“A winner. The Immigrant Wife: A Spiritual Journey is beautifully written. The story weaves many small strands into an intriguing tapestry, much like the paintings of our heroine, Shanti. It paints two pictures one of the beautiful valley of Kashmir and the beautiful hills of Western Pennsylvania. Shanti’s quiet determination to stay true to herself, her art, and her family is inspirational. I loved it! – Professor Laurence Glasco (University of Pittsburgh)

“In her debut novel, Madhu Bazaz Wangu, conjures a mysterious time and place. The protagonist, Shanti, begins her life as an idealistic but naive girl from the valley of Kashmir. As the story unfolds in America, she learns to heed her desires and shape her life, no longer rolling along like a stone turned in the tide. Wangu creates rich, dynamic images of India, comparable to her watercolors, evoking every sense. The indigenous sights, sounds, and smells are so vivid that I swear I could find my way to Shanti’s home. Wangu’s style is gentle and quiet like the protagonist, and deeply powerful. This tale of love and nurturing, loss and growth, and transformation will stay with readers long after they finish the novel.”  – Kathleen Shoop (IPPY Award Winner of The Last Letter)

Lion’s Vineyard Book By Alexandra Iff

Synopsis

“Living as a reject and in his own personal hell, Connor Martins abandons his family home in  Lodi, California, and decides to shun them forever. But eight years is a long time. Especially  now that his grandfather is frail, and in a need of his help ­ the Frankel family are back with a  vengeance.

When Evie Frankel learns of her mother’s wicked plan to take the land belonging to Connor’s  grandfather, she never imagined she’d have to deal with Connor Martins himself. For he was  long gone, and banished from Lodi. In a desperate need of affection, Evie crosses the line. In a desperate need of deflection, Connor crosses the line.” Excerpt  “Evie,” I hate it that I’m doing this. I don’t need anyone, I know, and yet, she is all I’ve been  thinking about.

Evie stands up and looks at me boldly. She wasn’t this daring when she was at my house. “Don’t you dare say my name you….” “Or what? You’ll show up in my house, dressed like a whore again?” Her eyes bulge in shock. She looks to her right, checking if Maria has heard me but lucky for  her Maria has left the bench the moment I decided to ignore her.

“Get off of my property before I really hurt you,” Evie huffs between her teeth.  “Right now you are standing on my property, Evie. I think it’s you that should step back.” She stands up, lifts her chin in a sign of protest and crosses her hands over her chest.  “Before I come too close.” That shocks her. She’s staring at me half confused half frowning.  “W­what does that mean?” Naïve curiosity spills out of her in abundance.

Which is why I can’t say another word. I’m beguiled with this woman who comes from the  very blood of Satan herself. My eyes glance at her lips, and my secret is revealed. It’s out  there, for everyone to mock me with. Her lips are too succulent not to dream of and her doe  eyes are too innocent not to believe them.

 photo Teaser 1_zpsslxw65no.jpg

She glances behind her again, checking if she’s alone and then she licks her lips for me. It’s  for me. I know. The way she looks at me, my eyes, and, my lips. Her eyes give off the  depravity hidden inside her. Our eyes have just kissed. Our lips may never do that.

I rated this book 5 *****’s

My favorite book from Ms. Alexandra Iff yet

I LOVED this new book of Ms. Alexandra Iff. It is my favorite book of her yet. The story is so good. It is slow at first but it’s getting intense as you read along. The story is so emotional. It is way better from her past writings.

There is vengeance, betrayal but above all forgiveness. You will LOVE her new characters especially the guy. This is a very unique story which is beautiful. You will get mad from other characters except the two main characters. It is a hate and love relationship. I really enjoyed reading this story so much. I am looking forward for the next story.

I received the ARC of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Alexandra, a singing and dancing force not to be reckoned with, especially when  she holds a microphone, is someone who imagined her life will be just like in the  film ‘Grease’. So she found her ‘Danny’, married him and right at this moment she  is annoyed his car doesn’t fly.

She is known for her love of fast cars and her pumps which she has way too many  pairs of. Correction, you can never have too many pairs of pumps!
