SYNOPSIS

Charlotte Daley is the daughter of the newly elected POTUS. An only child, she’s both spoiled rotten and entirely neglected by her powerful family. She’s been forced to eat with the right forks, smile at all the right times, and be the picture of perfection for months. Now that her father is in office and too busy to know she exists, she’s determined to exercise her new freedom before she heads back to college in New York.

Ex-SEAL Zane Parker has one job to protect the President’s daughter, all day, every day. But she’s been on a partying spree since the inauguration, heading down a dangerous path that threatens to ruin her reputation and cause a major scandal for her father. Zane will lose his job if he can’t get her under control. Except he wants to sleep with her as badly as he wants to set her straight. She needs discipline. And he might be just the one to give it to her.

When unexpected circumstances tie Charlotte to D.C. for the foreseeable future, Zane makes her an offer that’s anything but honorable. He’ll give the first daughter all the thrills she’s seeking in exchange for one thing… Her obedience. Fascinated by Zane’s dark promises, Charlotte agrees. Submission has never felt so good. But as Zane brings her deeper into his forbidden desires, enemies surface and danger lurks.

Mia Michelle fell in love with the world of books the very first time she stepped inside of her small hometown library. Growing up, she loved to spend time losing herself in the world of make believe by creating her own imaginative stories. The gift of a leather journal for her eighth birthday inspired her dream of one day becoming a writer. Though she kept most of her writing private over the years, a childhood best friend read the first draft of Rose of Thorne and encouraged her to take the leap of faith to bring her dream to life.

Mia fully admits to having a hopeless infatuation with her Kindle, and suffers from a one-click book addiction. (No intervention required). When she isn’t shuttling her two kids between cheerleading and football practice, or folding a massive pile of laundry, she can be found curled up in her favorite cozy chair with a pen in one hand and an adult beverage in the other.

Mia currently resides in a quaint little southern town in Tennessee with her husband, two children, and a fur baby.

Over the Edge – Reviewer Comments

“An intriguing, sexy story about unexpected love and balancing others’ expectations against your heart”

NYT Bestselling Author Shayla Black

“The third book in Wild’s Bridge series is a fantastic read, certain to woo new readers and satiate her returning fans. Over the Edge checks off all the boxes: it’s emotional, intense and extremely sexy. Wild taps into an often thought of as taboo fantasy — one woman sharing two men — and makes it a possibility, allowing the reader to live vicariously through the main character. While this is part of the Bridge series, it’s also effective as a standalone novel.”

Synopsis

Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.

Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.

Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…

**********************

The Bridge Series

Each book follows a different sibling’s journey and can be read as a standalone.

Hard-Love-Release-Week-Blitz

 

The international best-selling Hacker Series continues….and it’s never too late to start…

This is truly one of my all-time favorite series, with flawless writing and unforgettable characters. Read on…

Synopsis

Days after their wedding, Blake and Erica Landon embark on their honeymoon-a journey that deepens their bond and promises to fade the scars of their past. Just when their troubles seem safely behind them, scandal surrounding would-be Governor Daniel Fitzgerald’s election threatens their newfound peace. Back home, Blake finds himself at the center of the controversy, haunted by the transgressions of his hacker past that he has no wish to relive.

With Blake’s freedom at stake and their future in peril, Erica will stop at nothing to clear his name. But when Blake defies the authorities and refuses to seek the truth, their world gradually begins to crumble. Will he let his past win? Or can Erica convince him that their life together is worth fighting for-now more than ever…

Excerpt!

We walked the now familiar path back to our hotel, through the dark uneven streets out of Dublin’s city center. A hint of rain and the lingering scent of the fresh flowers that had been sold on the streets hours earlier filled the air.

I held Blake’s hand, admiring the details of the building architecture framing the old streets, greeting the bright-eyed faces that met us on the sidewalk. It was almost midnight, but our schedule was a mess and I was in no rush to be anywhere as long as we were together. Seeing my old professor again had been a flashback to a simpler time in my life. So much had happened since that first meeting in the Angelcom boardroom that he’d arranged with Max’s initial support. I could have never known then that I’d fall head over heels for the cocky investor sitting across from me…that I’d be his wife. But here we were, bound together as closely as two people could be.

Blake caught me closer to his side and brushed a soft kiss over my cheek. “I like Brendan. I can see why he’s become a friend.”

I smiled. “It seems odd to call him that, but it’s true. He encouraged me to build the business when I had so many doubts. He’s the reason I took the path I did.”

“A path that led you straight to me.” He squeezed my hand. “Lucky me.”

I was lucky too. I couldn’t deny it. But I could have never imagined traveling the road I had.

“You’re quiet. What are you thinking about?” he asked.

I blew out a breath and shook my head. “The business, I guess. I can’t help but feel like I…failed somehow.”

He glanced down at me. “You didn’t fail. You learned.”

I scuffed the sole of my boots against the stones as we walked, avoiding his stare.

“I’ve been around the block a few times, you know. You should trust me.”

I smirked. “That’s why I married you, of course. For your business acumen and wealth of knowledge.”

He lifted an eyebrow.

“And your mountains of money,” I added quickly.

He frowned. “You’re trying to tell me you didn’t marry me for my dashing good looks? I might be insulted.”

I pursed my lips, trying to look serious. “If I had to pick one thing that tipped the scales, I’d say it was your exceptional skills in bed. I think that’s where you really excel.”

“Well then”—he laughed, his eyes twinkling—“at least my purpose is clear.”

He gave my ass a firm squeeze. Laughing, I pushed him away as we approached a street performer who was crooning for the barest of audiences. A small group of French-speaking tourists stood nearby, and an older man, dirty from the streets, sat on the opposite side of the street with a sloppy grin.

We slowed to listen as the tourists dispersed. The song was sad, but rich with love—raw and emotional the way he delivered each verse. Blake turned me to him, bringing us chest to chest. Our fingers laced, his breath warm against my hair, he led us into a simple nameless dance. I swayed toward him and closed my eyes, clinging to his muscular frame the way I clung to every magical moment between us.

Straining for the lyrics through the singer’s thick accent, I caught the verses.

When misfortune falls sure no man can shun it.

I was blindfolded I’ll ne’er deny.

Now at nights when I go to my bed of slumber,

the thoughts of my true love run in my mind.

Another moment passed as the young man’s voice faded into the night. The song was a somber one, made light only by his passionate delivery of it. Like so much of life, the pain was what you made it. He’d made something sad beautiful.

I sighed, still tight against Blake’s chest. His body emanated warmth. His heartbeat was a steady reminder of his support, his love—a force that had saved me, changed me, and healed me in ways I’d never thought possible. He tipped my chin up, the glint in his eyes matching the passion in my heart. He parted his full lips, but hesitated, a wordless moment passing between us.

“I’m going to show you the whole world, Erica.”

“I can’t imagine enjoying a minute of it without you,” I whispered.

He stilled our slow dance, tracing a fingertip over my lips, his countenance now serious in a way that threatened my next breath.

“And I’m going to make you fall in love with me all over again. Every morning and every night. In every city and at the edge of every ocean. I’ll remind you why you’re mine and why I’ve always been yours.”

I drew in an unsteady breath, feeling his promise all the way to my soul. Swallowing hard, I found my voice. “I think you’re on the right track.”

I arched toward him until our lips met. Soft and slow at first, the kiss went deeper, stealing every thought that didn’t revolve around his taste and touch.

We broke apart slightly when a gravelly voice interrupted us.

“Go make love to her, lad, before she changes her mind already.”

Behind us, the man who’d made his home for the night in the entryway of a high-end store offered an imperfect grin, pairing his words of wisdom with a friendly tip of his small bottle of liquor.

I smiled, and Blake, by the dark look in his eyes, seemed to immediately accept the stranger’s challenge.

“I plan to,” he murmured, his tone all velvet and delicious threat. My skin tingled and he took my mouth again with a kiss that promised so much more.

It’s Author’s Day, a Perfect Time for a Tribute to Some of My Favorites

Photo image of the magic of books

Thank you, Authors!

November 1st is Author’s Day – it’s time to take a moment to stop reading and thank those who enrich my life with your words.

You’ve made me laugh, you’ve made me cry, you’ve made me feel, and think, and dream. You’ve brightened my days and warmed my nights (some of you perhaps a bit more than others…but – to quote a friend and his main character – “…I digress.”)

I’m never alone when I pick up a book – I’m surrounded by characters I’ve come to love, and the promise of new ones I’ve yet to meet. I’m drawn into a world not my own – a compelling story that takes me to places I can only imagine, as seen through the eyes of your wonderful heroes and heroines.

This is the magic you create, with a lot of very hard work, imagination, passion and a gift for writing that is wholly unique to you ~ your vision and your voice. You carry on a tradition of storytelling that is as old as human history…but is made new again with every word you write.  Your work and your words have changed my life, and you are appreciated much more than I can ever express.

My personal “Gallery of Greatness”

Everyone has their own list of favorite authors, for different reasons. There are many great authors out there that I haven’t met, and haven’t read, so next year, no doubt, there will be some additions. For today, here are those that have inspired me in the past year or so.

International Best-Sellers

Deborah Harkness ~ The All Souls Trilogy ~

I re-discovered the joy of reading as soon as I read the back cover and decided to buy A Discovery of Witches. This is a series that profoundly changed my life, by one of the kindest, most authentic authors I’ve had the pleasure to meet. These are books I will read over and over again for the rest of my life.  Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop are two of the best, most powerful, most passionate characters in contemporary fiction…and every character in the trilogy is simply unforgettable.

Sylvain Reynard ~ The Gabriel Series ~

Sylvain Reynard’s writing has a lyrical quality that draws you in and keeps you spellbound. I was so moved by the first few chapters of Gabriel’s Inferno that I stopped to email Sylvain in absolute awe of the story unfolding before me. He answered the email – and I was hooked.  Raw emotion, intense passion, coupled with a subtle sense of snarky humor keeps his characters powerfully real and completely unique.  Thank goodness, a new series begins early in 2015 with a transitional novella, The Prince, and continues with The Raven, book 1 of the Florentine Series. I can’t wait.

 E. L. James – the Fifty ShadesTrilogy ~

Erika James has changed more than a few lives with the story of Christian Grey and Ana Steele. She went from a fan fiction writer to a pop culture phenomenon in a matter of months, and the frenzy continues – fans of Christian Grey (including yours truly) are counting the days until it premiers on the big screen. Say what you will, this author opened a door for erotica to move from the back shelves to the mainstream, paving the way for thousands of new stories and authors to emerge.

Sylvia Day ~ The Crossfire Series ~  

One word, one name, one character: Gideon Cross.  Intensely raw. Frighteningly possessive. Incredibly broken. Powerful. Erotic. Suspenseful.  What more can a girl ask for?  In less than a week, my Kindle will be tingling with Captivated by You. I know I will be captivated. With Gideon, there’s no other choice.

 Christina Lauren ~ Beautiful Bastards and Wild Seasons ~

These two women are the dynamic duo of eroticism coupled with humor and a healthy dose of sass. All your favorite bad boys are here.  I loved the Beautiful Bastard books, and am having a wonderful time reading their latest series, The Wild Seasons.  Call it a guilty pleasure – pleasure being the operative word.

Emma Chase ~ The Tangled Series ~

I recently reviewed the conclusion of this wonderful series, reluctantly saying goodbye to one of the most charming and crazy couples in contemporary erotic fiction.  Emma’s had us Tangled, Twisted, Tamed and Tied, with the addition of Holy Frigging Matrimony as an ultimate teaser. She truly captures the male POV, giving us a hilarious look at ‘the male inner dialogue’ – but balances the humor with heat and heart. This is another series I will read over and over – the colorful cast of characters, the humor, the tenderness, and the sex….oh, yes, the sex.  I hope to read much more of Emma Chase in a future series, but until then, I’ll just hang out with Drew and the gang and reminisce.

 Meredith Wild ~ The Hacker Series and On My Knees ~

Powerful characters, powerful emotions, breath-taking eroticism and so much more. Meredith is one of a handful of authors that makes me one-click the preorder button as soon as the link goes live.  I’ve loved every one of her books, and I will grieve (for a short time) when the Hacker Series ends, as I have when every series I love comes to its conclusion. But based on the incredible story, On My Knees, Meredith has many more treats in store for her fans and future readers.

Indie Authors and Friends (in alphabetical order…)

Everyone knows I hold a special place in my heart for self-published authors, and am honored to call many of them my friends. (You know who you are and what you mean to me.) Thanks to you, I’ve witnessed, first-hand, the sacrifices required to take a risk and realize your dreams. I’ve also experienced the joy of reading, reviewing, and promoting some of the best books in contemporary fiction. I’ve been inspired by each of you in a unique way and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to be part of your writing journey.

I hope someday to join this hard-working, dedicated community with a book of my own (it’s underway, but a long way from publication). In the meantime, my driving passion – the one that makes the grind of real life entirely worthwhile –  is supporting, encouraging, promoting and celebrating self-published authors at every opportunity.  For more information about what that truly means, visit my business blog, Paula’s Passionate Promotions, (Author Services Page).

 A J Linn ~ The Gentleman’s Series ~

I discovered AJ on Twitter, during my fanatical Fifty Shades phase, and became hooked on his blog, christiangreypov.wordpress.com.  I give him credit for inspiring me to write and post my first book review on Amazon, for his debut novel, A Gentleman’s Affair. Being a member of “Team Fifty” for awhile in 2013 gave me my first glimpse of the indie author world, and my passion for promoting self-published authors soon followed. This blog wouldn’t exist without his influence and encouragement. AJ’s writing style is natural, clean crisp, “fresh” in every sense of the word – it has a “raw male quality” – an erotic edge – that is completely unique. If you haven’t met Donovan Hart – it’s time.

 Cameron Lincoln ~ Writer. Poet. Gentleman.

Cameron is an acclaimed blogger, the friend of a dear friend, and the author of two sexy favorites, Mine, Body and Soul, and Perfect Pleasures.  His sensual poetry and prose is perfect for curling up with a glass of red wine on a chilly evening — truly a treat for the senses.  Cameron has an avid following on Facebook and Twitter as well as a Blog and a Website. He is a man of many talents…and always a gentleman.

Edward A. Stanbridge ~ Captive in the Storm

 Photo image of author Edward A Stanbridge

Edward is another charming, drop-dead sexy gentleman author and blogger,  another dear friend of a dear friend with a gift for writing stunningly erotic fantasies. Currently published in blog installments, every chapter of Captive in the Storm is an adrenaline rush, a guilty pleasure of the best kind. I hope to see it as a novel in the future…but you can read it today on his blogspot site. Prepare to be Captive-ated.

Jake Malden ~ Gentleman. Scholar. Rogue. ~

If you can imagine it, Jake has written about it. If you haven’t imagined it yet – you will, when you read Jake’s alpha-male-driven, uber-erotic stories.  I can’t even begin to list favorites, because they change with my mood, but he has a stunning collection you can discover on his Amazon Author Page.  His novel, The Tempting of Neely J, is a wonderful place to begin, but if you like your bad boys really, really bad, download his latest collection, The Gavin McClain Stories, Volume 1.  Gavin might be bad to the core, but as the cover says…his stories are tantalisingly good.

Photo of the cover of The Gavin McClain Stories, volume 1, by Jake Malden, author

Kuhl Waters ~ Erotic Romance Author from Down Under…(pun intended)

Photo depiction of the avatar for Kuhl Waters, erotic romance author

I was fortunate to get to know Kuhl during a recent takeover and am delighted to call him a friend. ‘Kuhl’s Kinksters,’ – the ladies on his Facebook street team – are some of the most devoted fans I’ve seen on social media.  Kuhl’s specialty is the intricate weaving of romantic intimacy, fantasy, passion and eroticism in poetry and prose. That sense of deep intimacy and loving affection clearly distinguishes Kuhl from other authors who explore the dynamics of the D/s relationship. Follow Kuhl and find out about his latest release, To Meet Her Needs, on his website…prepare to be breathless.

 Liv Morris ~ The Touch of Tantra Series ~

Liv recently released the series as a collection…it should NOT be missed. I’d like to say I fell in love with the sexy alpha-male Adam Kingsley on page 1 of Adam’s Apple, book 1 of the Touch of Tantra series (Adam’s Apple, Temptation, and Adam’s Fall). That would be a lie, because at first introduction, Adam Kingsley is an over-sexed, self-absorbed, self-serving jerk. That’s where the magic begins. He meets Kathryn Delcour, a beautiful young widow, a gutsy heroine, and a highly skilled tutor in the tantric arts. What follows is an incredible trilogy, primarily told from Adam’s POV.  I believe I set a personal best speed-reading record because I simply could not put this trilogy down. In the end, you can’t help but fall in love with Adam as you watch Kathryn rock him to his core.

Rebecca Sherwin ~ Second Chance Hero (Seaside Series) and Survival (Twisted Series)

Rebecca is a passionate, funny, talented young author with a bright future ahead. She is one of my dearest friends and I’m proud to be her publicist/PA. Rebecca re-defines the concept of a happy-ever-after in book 1 of the Twisted Series, Survival. Not every ‘happy’ results in an ‘ever-after’, and the twists and turns in Survival will make your head spin — but it’s a journey well worth taking. Two of its compelling characters, Skye and Curtis, continue their stories in Book 2, Revival, set for release near the end of the year. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Riley Mackensie ~ Beautifully Awake, and Beautifully Done

Like Christina Lauren, Riley Mackensie is the name of a dynamic duo of writers who have quickly become two of my favorite contemporary romance authors.  Powerful characters, complex family dynamics, joy, heartbreak, humor, heart-stopping suspense and breath-taking eroticism combine with compelling storylines to make a deeply emotional reading experience that will leave you wanting — no, craving — more. Discover the books and their author(s) on their Amazon Author Page.

Sydney Jamesson ~ The Story of Us Trilogy ~

I’ve written many posts about this wonderful series and its author, Sydney Jamesson.  My friendship and professional relationship with Sydney is something I’ve treasured for well over a year, and watching this series unfold is among the peak experiences of my literary life. As I’ve detailed in so many blog posts, this series is truly unique, defining a new type of 21st century fairy tale, blending elements of romance, eroticism, suspense – even the paranormal – in a breath-taking tale of infinite love and ultimate sacrifice.  I look forward to reading whatever Sydney publishes in the future, because I know it will be thoughtfully researched, deeply passionate and genuinely one-of-a-kind.

Tracie Podger ~ The Fallen Angel Series ~

Where do I begin? I met Tracie when I had an opportunity to join the tour for Fallen Angel, Book 2 and review her first two novels.  I was ensnared by the enigmatic, powerful, seductive survivor, Robert Stone, from the moment he appeared behind Brooke Stiles in that office break room in Washington, DC – the moment where their lives intersected – that defining moment when each knows their lives will never be the same. What a ride it’s been since.  Tracie has become a very dear friend – a partner and colleague – and, not unlike Robert and Brooke, I think our lives have been changed  – separately and together – by this series.  Tracie has a limitless imagination, amazing energy, passion and authenticity.  We’ve laughed our way through tours and takeovers, and next year – the gods be willing – we’ll be taking the signing circuit in the UK by storm.  In the meantime…Fallen Angel 1 and 2, Evelyn, and Robert are drawing new, devoted fans by the day; Fallen Angel 3 will join them in December; then Travis – wonderful, sexy, charming Travis – will have his own story. After that? No spoilers. Just watch, wait and prepare to be amazed.

Meredith Wild


Software mogul Blake Landon has met his match in headstrong Erica Hathaway. While his controlling nature and her independent spirit continue to battle, Blake has no intention of letting her out of his life again.


Erica has given Blake her trust and her love, determined that they will conquer any challenges together. But when he demands more and tests the boundaries of her commitment, she is forced to face the dark desires he’s kept hidden.

As their bonds grow tighter, their enemies close in. With Erica’s start-up in danger, Blake’s frustration grows as he tries to protect her from those who would ruin her only to get to him. Can their relationship survive when Blake’s enemies cross the line and threaten more than her livelihood?

Despite Blake Landon’s controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loves. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.

Ready to start this new chapter in her life, Erica is determined not to let anything come between them, even if that means giving Blake back some of the control he craves in and out of the bedroom.

But when demons from her past threaten their future, Erica makes a decision that could change their lives forever.

Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn’t prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who seems determined to derail her presentation.

Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.

But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create.

On My Knees, by Meredith Wild: Love, Regret, Forgiveness and Destiny

Disappointment

I thought it was difficult to read On My Knees, the latest release from Meredith Wild; but I found it even more difficult to review. It was a difficult read because it was deeply emotional, even painful to watch Maya and Cameron deal with the consequences of a single, life-changing decision; and to appreciate how much their sense of regret fundamentally changed them in the years that followed. At times I had to will myself to keep reading, hoping that the reward would be a happy ending, all the while remembering that happily ever afters are more often the stuff of fairy tales than life.  By the end, of all the words I might use to capture the overall impression left by this story, the word “real” wins, hands-down.

On My Knees was even more difficult to review because the story was so thought-provoking that I spent three days simply trying to capture its theme in a way that might compel other readers to take this often-difficult journey. On My Knees is a very unique story with an uncommon plot line that is simultaneously frustrating, heart-warming, and suspenseful; sometimes incredibly steamy; and always deeply passionate.

Readers, be prepared: this is not a casual read.  On My Knees will take you through the emotional wringer – with a relatively peaceful plateau – before the struggle resumes both within and between the former lovers.  You will be left wondering, right up until the end, if they can overcome past pain and present demons; allow themselves to trust each other; acknowledge their shared destiny; and experience joy together in a “new” relationship.

As I prepared to write, I looked for quotes that would capture my interpretation of the theme. The first one speaks to the sense of betrayal each character feels as their relationship ends and their shared dreams literally die. The next one speaks to the aftermath of their tragic break-up, as Maya and Cameron are imprisoned in their own private visions of Hell.  As they continually re-live the consequences of their actions, they are fundamentally changed.  Each makes  decisions – and, especially in Maya’s case – often impulsive, irrational ones – in an unsuccessful attempt to escape the pain and keep their personal demons at bay.  It is only when Maya and Cameron allow themselves to give in to their darkest fear that they are able to risk loving each other again; each hoping it isn’t too late.

Forgiveness

On My Knees is a powerfully-written story with unforgettable characters. For a story of such emotional depth, it is remarkably straightforward. Alternating points of view provides much-needed insight into the battles within and between Maya and Cameron.  Their individual, internal dialogue engages the reader in a way that conveys the depth of their conflict; the extent of their fear; the height of their passion;  the memories of their joy; and the darkness of their despair as they embark on a perilous journey to find themselves again.

Once again, Meredith Wild proves herself to be an author with a broad range of writing talent that is worthy of accolades.  I highly recommend this book for those who want something more substantive than a casual romance. Although it was often painful to experience, there are aspects of this story that anyone who has experienced betrayal and hurt by someone they love and trust can relate to ~ and find hope for healing.

Love and Forgiveness
