Angel of Mine - Jessica Louise




Amazon Buy Link




If you had the ability to heal with just one touch, the capability to absorb other’s pain by making it your own, would you do it?


The gratifying feeling she gets from helping others intoxicates Ally; the glowing warmth within constantly simmers, incessant on bursting free. Ally was born to do this, but how much more damage can her body take?

Theo finds himself getting close to the girl that continues to inflict pain on herself. When he discovers her secret, his overwhelming concern drives him to do everything in his power to prevent Ally from getting hurt, no matter how lovely her intentions are.

Theo also has secrets and will take any measure to keep them hidden from the girl he is falling in love with. He knows better than to let her get too close. She can never find out the information he conceals because she cannot help him anyway.

Devastating circumstances. Helpless love. Where there's a will, is there actually a way?

Something really dark, something real, with no hea.

I was born in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and raised in Alice Springs (the very center of the country). I have always loved reading and telling "tall tales" and wrote poetry all the time. My greatest influence was my grandpa Majid who kept us entertained all the time with his stories, music and passion for writing. 

I didn't tell anyone I wrote when I started because I was to shy, I have no idea why I was like that. I don't care now, I have stories to tell and I want to share them. I am not, and never will profess to be an awesome writer, but I will try to entertain, while bringing to life the history of my country, one page at a time.

In Love by Design By Tracy Ellen Cover Reveal

In Love by Design (The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod #3) by Tracy Ellen

Release date:  September 12,2013





In Love by Design welcomes you back to Northfield, Minnesota and the life of Anabel Axelrod.

Its official--the sexy, blonde bookstore owner with a sassy attitude, a brain that never stops, and a reluctant penchant for helping her family and friends out of trouble has fallen madly in love.
Anabel doesn't get to prove what a fabulous girlfriend she'll make for more than eight hours before Luke disappears out of town. Instead of getting to enjoy being a girl passionately in love, Anabel’s shiny new feelings and trust in her boyfriend are immediately being tested.
Who is the darkly powerful and charismatic Luke Drake? What are his secrets? Does he really love Anabel, or has he been manipulating her to further an intricate plan of cold revenge in the making for over twenty years?
This third book in the series finds the confident Anabel desperately needing her sense of humor and all her understanding of human nature to deal with life. But Anabel soon learns the hard way she has even bigger issues to worry about than family problems and an incredibly hot, but very tricky boyfriend.
She’s made some bad enemies recently and someone wants her dead. After the first attempt on her life, Anabel and Luke team up to solve this mystery, but Anabel is beginning to wonder if she can trust her Dark Prince. Or Is this one fairy tale where love does not conquer all?

Meet Tracy Ellen...When I was eleven, I got about a hundred bucks in cash between my birthday and Christmas presents. This was BIG money back then. I spent every red cent of it on five pair of darling shoes and a couple of heaving bosom / manly muscle romance novels. For all of my life, I've always had a thing for shoes that make me say "Oh yum", and a thing for reading books with plots centered on dangerously smart men and sassy, intelligent women. It's not an exaggeration to say I've avidly read everything I could get my hands on to find these jewels.One day this past year or so, I realized that I spend more money on books now than I do on shoes. I was stunned. Should I be ashamed of this fact or proud? Then an even stranger thing happened. It was like a switch turned off/on inside me. All of a sudden instead of wanting to read about romance, I wanted to write my own stories about the building sexual attraction between a confident woman and a mysterious man.So began my budding writing career. Then I made another happy discovery; I absolutely love writing! Since then, I've become a writing fiend. My self-published books include A Date with Fate and Courted by Karma in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series. I'm releasing the third book in this series, In Love by Design, in September 2013. For those of you who may want to know some pertinent facts: Don't worry--I still adore yummy shoes and always will, even when I have one foot in the grave. Also, I was born in Indiana, the third out of five hellions. (My mother wanted to go to work every day.) I've always lived in the Midwest, except for six steamy months in Florida when I was nineteen. Currently, I reside in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota with my family. The college town of Northfield featured in Anabel's Adventures is just down the road a jaunt. 
I love, love, love connecting with readers. Reviews, comments, posts, and emails are always welcome. Follow my blog (although, I’m sorry to say it's boring because I'd rather write books than write posts in my blog) or like me on Facebook to be aware of events, giveaways, new books I'm publishing, or a rare posting of something that strikes my funny bone. (Hmm, for a woman who loves to connect, I'm actually quite unsociable in the social media forum...)

VIXEN IN VEGAS (A SINFUL NOVELLA, #2) BY EMMA NICHOLS REVIEW








Well what can I say, Emma has done it again, I loved it, I could not wait to start this one.
Wow what a rollercoaster of emotions this book took me on. If you have not read Sin at Sea go and grab a copy now before hitting this one.

We kick off right where Sin at Sea ends, after the cruise the girls start packing up so they can head to Vegas. Alysin has alot of fear and hesitation about the whole thing with BE.
Can she let herself go long enough to allow herself to have a real go at a relationship.

Jolie is Sin's rock and makes her see sense all through this book lol, she is cool - we all should have a best friend like that aww. In a way I did feel sorry for Jolie having to put up with Sin's for 10years having a different flavor of the month, but hey thats what best friends are for, lol.

They get to Vegas and its hot as soon as Sin sees BE they get all hot and heavy yes there is alot of sex but its totally different from the sex they were having in the last book.
They decide to break all the rules in this one and you finally found out BE name (but I am not sharing sorry you will have to read the book to find out)

After spending some time in Vegas BE wants to show Sin his home in California so they go off for another adventure. They discover so much about each other on this trip, can their love keep them together or will it all fall apart...

That was a great second book. I can not say any more but wow, I so did not see that coming and I was kinda shocked. This is a fab book and would highly recommended it...












What made her decide to be an erotica author?

Simple.

How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?

Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn't believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life's cliche moments spicy.

Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.
