COVER REVEAL: No Ordinary Bloke (Mary Whitney)

Title: No Ordinary Bloke

Author: Mary Whitney

Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+

Publication Date: August 2014

Cover Design: Jada D'Lee Designs

Event Organized by: Literati Author Services,Inc.


I’m not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It’s all a matter of chance. It’s both your circumstances and the chances you take. So I've always been a gambler and a ladies' man — they love me and I love them. Now I've found one like no other — an American, Allison Wright. When I met her, the fates were on my side, but too soon I learned the odds were against me.

About the Author:

Mary Whitney blames Laura Ingalls Wilder and Margaret Mitchell for her obsession with romance novels. At an early age, Mary fell in love with the Little House series and its dreamy hero, Almanzo Wilder, who only wanted Laura to be Laura. Like many women, Mary later graduated to the ultimate, tall and dark bad boy, Rhett Butler, who loved Scarlett despite her flaws.

Mary has lived around the U.S., and after a first career in the non-profit world and politics, she's settled in Northern California with her husband and daughters. She spends her days writing characters she hopes somehow capture the romance of Rhett and Scarlett and Almanzo and Laura. She's a firm believer in what Rhett says to Scarlett: "You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.

LISA'S REVIEW: Being Sawyer Knight (Nicola Haken)

Being Sawyer Knight Blog Tour Banner

As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…
Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.”

This is a love story, a story where a best friends love is more than friendship. I also want to say this is a very great love story. Who isn't in love with a rock star at some point in your life? Jake is lucky enough that his rocker loves him back. Even if this rocker struggles to open up and come out. I'm not gonna lie, I got up and did a happy dance when Sawyer told Kip the truth. I wanted to slap Sawyer for waiting so long to tell the rest of the world but I also understood his fear. But, WOW, this is an amazing  from a read.  The only thing keeping me from a 5 moon rating is that M/M is not for every one. But, for this genre it is 5 moons and then some. One of the best romances I have read in a long time. Jam packed with emotions you feel right along with Sawyer and Jake. I am so on the fence about this rating because, it is a 5 moon romance. But, I cannot say it is for everyone. I can say that if you haven't read a M/M romance then this is the perfect book to try it out. I sat there reading this book and feeling the love between the two and hoping everyone out there gets to feel a love like this. Amazing and I cannot wait for Ryder's story!!!

young pretty kissing wedding couple against sky

Book Info:
Title: Primordial Dust
Author: Sarah Daltry
Genre: Fantasy (Romance/YA)

A princess, trained to behave. An assassin, betrothed to her. A thief, whose eyes she dreams of at night. A kingdom at war, torn apart by the suppression of magic and truth, as well as family secrets that threaten to destroy decades of peace.

Questions of loyalty, of morality, and of free will culminate in a fantasy novel about forging one’s own path and choosing one’s own destiny.

Alusia smiles wanly. “What happened in Kooram?” she asks.

“There was a party. We were dancing. Seamus and I were celebrating our engagement...” I pause, ashamed. He sits beside me, unaware of my role in this, oblivious to my own deception. “It was my fault.”

Seamus takes my hand. “Alondra, stop. You know this has nothing to do with you.”

“It has everything to do with her,” Alusia interrupts. “And her mother.”

“Look, although Alondra seems thankful for whatever you want to share with her, I don't care what these secrets are. This is not her fault and she does not need you blaming her.” Seamus's anger is new to me. I have been so amazed by his calm, his kindness; he is more like a Demorian now than I have ever seen him, and I have watched him cut a man's throat.

Alusia sighs. “I do not mean to assign blame. But we can no longer pretend that this was a rogue attack, that these events have not culminated in bringing you here, that fate has not worked its magic to get this book into her hands.” She runs her fingers along the book on her lap.

“It's fine,” I say. “But it was not fate. Maybe I did not make the only bad choices, but choices got us here. And I, for one, am tired of hearing about fate.”

“The attack,” Seamus continues. “It was sudden. A siren spell warned us before the mages were slaughtered. I don't know how they breached the Demorian guard, but without the dying spell of an elder mage, no one would be sitting here right now with you.”

“So you ran?” Alusia asks.

“I don't run,” I argue. “In fact, I am only here because someone kidnapped me in my sleep.”

“It was her father's wish,” Seamus mumbles.

“The forces came quickly. We spread the word to meet in the caves and Kooram split into two groups: those who were running for the caves, and those who would stay behind. My parents were with those running, but I stayed. Ereditus, our commander, rallied the troops. Seamus was already by my side. My friend, Lormander...”

I stop and think of that moment. Sanara's face, broken by the choice he was making, is etched into my memory. I watched her fingers slowly fall from his hand and the agony in her glance as she turned back to see him one last time tore me asunder. And now, somewhere, are they reunited? Did she lead everyone to Tallagut? Did he stay behind in the caves to face his death, remembering her kiss as the blade entered his heart? I choke on the images and tears rest on the precipice of my eyelids.

“We stayed,” I repeat. “There were so many of them. It was chaos. Smoke billowed from the streets, from our homes, from everything that was my childhood. I saw young boys, thinking they were brave, split in twain as the attackers stepped over the corpses, trailing death. What I remember most was the sound. The crash of swords, the screams of the fallen, the crackle of burning. The details are hazy. We left Kooram in ruins when we saw that we were outclassed. I walked through fields of carnage to the caves, only to wake on the other side, in a mirror world, yet untouched.”

“The king, he asked that we come here. He said you had the answers, the only weapon we could use against him,” Seamus adds. My shattered body sits beside him, but my mind and my soul are still with the dead.

“I am an old woman, and a forgotten mage,” Alusia says. “I am also the keeper of secrets and memories. I do not forge steel. My only weapon is knowledge. But that I have in abundance, and I believe it is time Alondra take her share.”

She rises from the dusty chair and approaches. I sense my hands as they lift to take the book she offers; the leather cover is hardened, but smooth to touch. I run my hand along the spine and trace the embossed seal.

“Please take this to your room. You will need time, and you will need privacy. When you are done, I will be waiting for your questions.”

Dream Cast:


A princess of a kingdom lost in time and wrapped in secrets. Snarky and difficult, because life has always been easy, she is unprepared to be the leader she needs to be when her city falls.


A trained assassin tasked with keeping his own city, and all the cities of the kingdom, safe. Betrothed to Alondra for diplomatic reasons. Much kinder than his profession reveals.


A young girl trained to be an assassin, sent to kill the son of the king. Her hopes rest on succeeding in her quest, because if she fails, there is no alternative but death.


The mysterious man who captures Alondra’s heart on a night before the world fell apart. His eyes whispered secrets, but they may be secrets that led to the ruin of everything she held dear.

    About the Author

    I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

    I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

    When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"

    Get Electrified with Rachel Blaufeld and the first book in her brand new Electric Tunnel series!
    Title: Electrified (The Electric Tunnel Series #1)
    Author: Rachel Blaufeld
    Release date: April 29th, 2014

    About Electrified (The Electric Tunnel Series #1)

    Everyone knows her as Sienna Flower.
    Her curves and long lashes tease and taunt from her very own billboard where the desert meets the Las Vegas Strip. She’s the hottest stripper in town, known for her sultry and indecent moves coupled with her virginal eyes.

    She’s a heady and unique combination, and a mystery to all who come to see her.

    Sienna captivates crowds nightly at the Electric Tunnel, leaving them wanting to know more about the sensual enigma. But no one ever sees beyond the heavily guarded stripper onstage. She is Sienna Flower 24/7.

    No one other than her closest friend and boss, Asher Peterson, who helped turn a young and frightened girl into who Sienna is today. Together they created the sexual illusion known as Sienna Flower. They will go to any lengths to protect her image, which is why Sienna is convinced she must remain unattached and alone.

    Like everyone else in Vegas, Sienna is hiding something and playing a role. A good girl in her former life, she was raised to be obedient and accepting of her fate, but there are some circumstances no one should be expected to accept. She escaped to a world light years away from the one she was subjected to…the Electric Tunnel.

    Now she can never be anything other than Sienna Flower. Not only would she be hurt, but everyone around her would suffer the consequences.

    That is, until she meets private detective Carson Graham, the dark and mysterious ex-FBI agent who watches her dance every weekend. With his dark hair and chocolate-brown eyes, Carson begins to heat Sienna’s heart and body, melting away the layers and secrets. Sienna doesn’t want to get attached to Carson, but when another man surfaces and starts hunting her down, bringing out the scars of her old life, she can’t help but seek comfort in Carson’s protection.

    With everyone trading on the secrets of her past, Sienna finds herself caught in an awful web of lies. Her ultimate fear is hurting her friends at the Tunnel, but she doesn’t know who to trust. Namely, Carson. Is he good? Or bad? Does she have the luxury of finding out?

    Author: Lisa Alder

    Genre:Paranormal Romance

    Publish Date: December 9, 2013
    Barbas, the Demon of Healing, has a secret. One he'd do anything to keep. Until the day that he meets his sworn enemy and finds himself drawn into her world. Certainly a Demon strong enough to survive being chained for a millennium beneath the Earth's crust can resist one virginal princess when she demands his help. To reveal the truth would make him a traitor to his people. So why does deceiving the princess make him feel like a traitor to his heart?

    Warning: This erotic romance novella contains sex outdoors, virginal sex, sex between sworn enemies, and lots of smokin' hot Demon and Fae sex!

    This futuristic fantasy romance series is set in the near future after a massive earthquake unleashes magickal Demons who have been trapped beneath the Earth's crust for the last thousand years. When they burst to the surface, their energy fries all electrical systems and throws the Human world into an industrial apocalypse. In this post-apoc, dystopian world Humans are caught between the warring Demons and their mortal enemy, the Fae.

    Demons and Fae draw magickal power from Human emotions. Each side gains victories and suffers defeats. But lately the Demons have been increasing in power exponentially, while the Fae are growing weaker.

    But the Fae have plans to change their luck


    A sexy Demon/Fae novella! Who could want more? I love Barbas, wow! He is a swoon worthy character for sure. The plot on this is great! I love the futuristic aspect, it's different for me and I love it. I want so much more from this. I really hope the next one is out soon because I feel like I was left with too many questions. This could easily be a full length book and I can't wait for more here. Was over too quick and will leave you begging for more Demon!

    Spice Box Title: The Kraken's Mirror (The Kraken's Caribbean #1)

    Author:  Maureen O. Betita

    Genre: Hot Romance Adventure

    Published Date: January 6, 2014

    Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of any place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman. Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on with life. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. Lucky to win an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, she finds herself transported by the Kraken's mirror through a magical portal to a land of Hollywood piratitude, where swashbuckling heroes own iPods. With little choice, Emily embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right? When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, he needs her to be whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken's mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?


    Fun and different! I love Emily! This was just a great read. Loved the plot and pirates! I got lost quickly and was sad to have it come to an end. The romance, the pirates, the curse, and the mirror made for a delight to read! Betita did an wonderful job of creating characters easy to relate to in such an unbelievable world. Which made it all so very believable for me! I loved it and so will you.

    Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey photo
    Title: Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Gray
    Author: Riley J. Ford

    Genre: An Erotic Romance Parody/Romantic Comedy

    Published Date: February 10, 2013
    What happens when you try 50 Shades in the REAL world?

    When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache. The unworldly but focused Ben decides he will do anything to rekindle his sex life, including imitating the erotic techniques of billionaire Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades series. Unable to withstand the pent-up ache radiating from his tender blue testicles, Ben decides to take Grey's methods to a whole new level in order to relieve the pressure on his . . . er, marriage.

    Shocked by her husband's unusual plan, Kate Weaver hesitates in giving him what he desires. But for all his trappings of non-success--his ordinary accounting job where coworkers steal his sandwiches and brag about their sex lives, his lack of wealth, his inability to seduce his own wife--Ben is a man with one saving talent: the driving determination to reignite his sex life no matter what it takes. When the couple embarks on a daring and dangerous physical adventure, Kate discovers her husband's fanatical zeal to explore all of Christian Grey's darkest desires, with calamitous results.

    Erotic, hilarious, and highly disturbing, Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey is a spin-off that will titillate you, amuse you, and stay with you until the next erotic romance crosses your Kindle.


    Laugh out loud, amazing! I could not get enough of this hilarious read. I could read this over and over. I have never read a parody before but I am so glad I did this one. Poor Ben, God love him, but nothing goes as planned for him. Kate's character was a little too over bard on her part but I still enjoyed this book.

     It was fun and a nice change for me. The comedy will have me coming back to this book over and over for a good laugh. This was perfect to me and I really had a great time reading this!

    Spice Box Title: Torn Between Two Brothers

    Author: Cathryn Fox

    Genre: Erotic Romance

    Published Date: April 4, 2011
    Lauren Gray loves everything about Adam Wilson, but she can’t deny that while she loves their frantic lovemaking sessions, there are times when she’d like to shift things into slow gear.

    When she discovers Adam asleep in his bed, she slips between his sheets and attributes his achingly gentle touch to his mellow state. Except come morning she realizes that it wasn’t Adam who was searing her body with slow, sultry lovemaking, it was his brother Garret. 

    Lauren can’t help but think that separately the brothers are amazing, but a combination of the two makes the perfect package. And when this good girl realizes she’s torn between two brothers it has her thinking about breaking all the rules…


    Such a quick read! I hate when they go by so quickly. But wow was this good! I don't like the brothers thing in a book but, this is written so well that I over look it completely! This is a very sexy read with two hott men. If Lauren would have had to choose just one then, I would have hated it, so for once I really loved the brother aspect in a love triangle. 

    This was a great example of how to make it work and work well. I enjoyed it a lot and hope for more like it in the future!

    Eternal Ever After photo 18891482_zpse80b7939.jpg
    Spice Box Title: Eternal Ever After (Ever After #1)

    Author: A.C. James

    Genre: Paranormal Romance Erotica

    Published Date: April 3, 2014
    His past holds a secret...

    Arie Cush has a secret that he thought he'd left behind. When his past follows him to Chicago he must protect someone that reminds him of all the painful memories he's tried so hard to forget. But when every touch from her sets his heart and body on fire--he finds it hard to maintain his aloof façade.

    ...that becomes her nightmare.

    Holly Ellis has secrets of her own. An encounter with the handsome stranger who frequents her coffee shop reveals a vampire with baggage. Even though it might be more than she bargained for, she can't resist the one person who understands her. But her life is in danger and a supernatural threat could reveal the underground world of vampires to humankind in this Gothic Cinderella re-telling.

    Heat Level: This book is a steamy romance. It's the development of a romantic relationship that contains more explicit language and sex. The sex is not an inherent part of the story, character growth, or relationship development, and if removed you still have an amazing plot. 

    Warning: This book is fictitious. The bdsm portrayed in this story does not portray the lifestyle. Vampires will be vampires. They don't exactly stop to discuss a scene, pain thresholds, and there is no aftercare involved. Trust is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle. Use due diligence and research before deciding to make fiction into reality.


    So this is not my favorite in the set but not bad either. There are things I love and things I hate but overall a good vampire book. I was on the fence for this ones rating but the good writing won out and I say go and read this! 

    The thing that I don't like is that Holly reminds Arie of Katarina, this just bugs me. I don't know why but it does. I do love the mystery surrounding Holly though. A book with passion, mystery, suspense and paranormal makes for a really good read. One you should definitely pick up and give a try.

    His to Keep photo HistoKeepnew_zpse5c22c9d.jpg
    Spice Box Title: His To Keep (DeMarco Investigations #2)

    Author: Stephanie Julian

    Genre: Erotica with heat and heart

    Published Date: February 25, 2012


    One phone call is all it takes to throw Nic DeMarco’s carefully controlled world into chaos. The woman he's loved for years has been threatened, and he'll do anything to keep her safe… only, she's not his to protect.

    Annie Reed has been in love with her best friend’s brother since she first laid eyes on him, but he's kept her at arm's length. When she takes a job at the DeMarco family private investigation firm, Annie tries to keep her emotions in check. But Nic is too much to ignore.

    As Nic and Annie get closer, so does the danger that stalks them...


    Who doesn't love a good romantic suspense. Hot and steamy and throw a little danger into the mix... It creates one fun read. With a well written story line and great characters, this book was hard to put down. I was extremely pleased with this read.

    I loved Nic. That strong alpha male that makes these romances so fun to read. Annie was a fairly easy character to relate too. She wasn't my favorite heroine, but I enjoyed her character just the same. I always love when you add action to romance, so this story was the perfect read for me.

    Goodreads for Red Tape


    Loved this one! It maybe my favorite of the set. So much going on and so much to lose. I really loved this set up for a book. BDSM, suspense, behind the scenes of the White House, and so much more. 

    A great read. Love Zoe and Jason. The past they have together only adds to the current mission. Who doesn't love a book with secret missions that are about sex? Great plot and one I will read over and over again!

    Spice Box Title: Arouse (Spiral of Bliss #1)

    Author: Nina Lane

    Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

    Published Date:  March 17, 2012
    "One day I'm going to touch you in a thousand different ways and show you how to touch me," he said. And he did.

    Struggling with a tormented past, undergraduate Olivia Winter once led a practical but isolated life. Then she met Professor Dean West, a brilliant scholar of medieval history who melted Liv's inhibitions and taught her the meaning of both love and erotic pleasure. But after three years of a blissful, lusty marriage, Liv and Dean now face a crisis that threatens everything they believe about each other. And when dark secrets and temptations rise to the surface, the fallout might break them apart forever.


    This book was very difficult to read. More than Once I wanted to slap Live for her poor choices in this story. Dean is not much better. It is a good story and well written, but I was too angry during the book to enjoy it.

    Just when I would start to get happy I would get pissed all over because of one thing or another they did. I also hate cliff hanger endings so that was just one more thing to add to my anger. Well written just not for me, but that's not stopping me from reading on to see if there will be a happy ending for Liv and Dean. 

    Having read the rest of the series now I say this book is well worth the time to get to the great rest of the series.

    Author: Travis Luedke

    Genre: Sexy Paranormal Erotica with a bite

    Published Date: November 17, 2013
    Her mother named her Esperanza Salvación - Hope for Salvation. But when a girl works as an escort for Colombian cartel in the ghettos of Spanish Harlem, there wasn’t much hope, or salvation.

    Hope’s telepathic ability keeps her a step ahead of ruin, but her unusual gift attracts the attention of a psychotic vampire bitch. Trapped in a Manhattan penthouse with the psycho, she thought she was dead meat.

    Her survival lies in the hands of Vampire Master Enrique. He seems to respect her, perhaps even care. As a measure of protection, he makes her his personal Bloodslave. Helplessly addicted to his bite, Enrique rules her every moment. As always, Hope must adapt to survive.

    Swept into the decadent nightlife of Manhattan's elite, she falls in love with Enrique and prays someday he may grow to love her, too. But is it simply a relationship of convenience? Is she nothing more than a concubine desperate to satisfy his nightly demands for blood and sex?

    And forever in the background is the fear that one day the cartel boss she abandoned will hunt her down to collect on old debts.


    This book is for all yiou lovers of sex scenes! Add in a paranormal twist and you have Blood Slave. Though there is loads of sex and violence it's still a very great story. So much happens and I just kept on thinking WOW! or OMG! I absolutly love Hope's character and found her beautifully written. Loved the end and so worth every second for me. 

    A real page turner and I really enjoyed it. This is the first of it's type I have read that is written by a man and I must say I will be reading more of Travis Luedke's books. This was amazing!

    Blood Avenged photo 2600194_zpsa4d2ef42.jpg
    Spice Box Title: Blood Avenged (Sons of Navarus #1)

    Author: K.M. Scott writing as Gabrielle Bisset

    Genre: Erotic Paranormal

    Published Date: December 10, 2013

    Long ago, the first vampire was born from the love of the goddess Macaria, the daughter of Hades, God of the Underworld, and Navarus, the human male who fell in love with her. As her consort, he walked the night as she always had, becoming the first vampire. Loving her, he turned her vampire and together they had eight sons. The youngest, Idolas, had a vision of the world long after ancient Greek times, of a time when the Archons, those vampires chosen to keep law and order in the vampire world, would move to overthrow the elders in the Order of Macaria and impose their iron rule on all.

    The vampire world is now very far from the love Macaria and Navarus shared millennia ago. The Archons have moved to fulfill the Prophecy of Idolas and begin the takeover. Standing in their way are the Sons of Navarus, eight vampire warriors chosen by the Order of Macaria to protect the way of life vampires have enjoyed for thousands of years and defeat the Archons when the day Idolas prophesied came true.

    That time has come and for the eight Sons of Navarus, this war will test all their strength and courage. They must unlock the secrets of the Prophecy of Idolas to defeat the Archons or perish in trying for none of their kind can be safe if the Archons win this battle.


    What a great starter to a new series. Left me dying to read about the next characters while still loving every second spent with Vasilije and Sasa. Boy was it a steamy read! Erotic doesn't seem to define it :). Add the revenge path of Vasilije and you have a great book. Looking forward to lads more from Bisset and her work and so much more of the Sons that are to come!

    Author: Jan Springer

    Genre: Science Fiction Erotic Romance

    Published Date: March 1, 2013


    When Sex Squad Detective Sky Kelley informs her fiancé, Detective Jim O’Brien, that she wants to wait until they’re married before they have sex, he dumps her! Angry and defiant at his rejection, Sky undertakes a dangerous mission into the dark and sensual world of sex slave training on one of Saturn’s pleasure moons.

    When Jim discovers Sky has volunteered for the mission, he’s enraged. She’s too pure and innocent for such a naughty assignment and he has no choice but to follow her. However, Sky isn’t anybody’s damsel in distress and she’s going to prove it in ways Jim has only dreamed about…

    Please Note: This story was previously published as "Loverboy" by another publisher and has been re-written for Spunky Girl Publishing.


    Interesting story line! I am not sure how I feel about the story it's self though. It is very well written but Jim is a jerk so I really don't get why Sky was with him and why he gets mad over her job. He dumped her so it's not his business. That whole part was hard for me to get over but other than that I liked it. I read it straight through and enjoyed it. I just didn't connect as well with the characters as I usually do and that held me back a bit. 

    Would I recommend this read? Yes! Like I said I really liked it. My hang ups are me and me alone.

    Oh wow! This was the perfect way to end this little series. The cover is great! A really fun read. I loved this incredibly sexy read!

This is the kind of series you pick up over and over again. And honestly I can't wait to relive this series again and jump into the new series this preludes to!
