A copy of this book was provided to me by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Hola Chickies!  Welcome to another week of SINsual Sunday!  Our quote this week comes from Hunter's Moon by Lisa Kessler.  This one isn't SINsual but it's sweet!

The sound of your voice makes the chaos around me vanish.  The smell  of your hair clams my soul.  The sight of your smile tames the wolf inside of me, and touching your skin..."  He glanced at our joined hands.  "Touching your skin makes the broken parts of me whole." ~ Aren to Sasha

Taming the Alpha (Crescent Moon, #1)Title:  Taming the Alpha
Series:  Crescent Moon Series (Book 1)
Author:  Savannah Stuart
Genre:  Paranormal Romance

I have made it no secret that I LOVE shifter series, especially those that include wolf shifters.  I was pleasantly surprised to discovered Taming the Alpha, a little mini series written by Savannah Stuart and have enjoyed the little slices of life she provides readers of the Crescent Moon Pack.

Grant Kincaid is the alpha to the Crescent Moon Pack and owner of several pack businesses, including a bar that employs humans and shifters alike. Being alpha and a business owner, Grant has a strict policy to not date or sleep with any of his employees.  Well that particular policy gets thrown right out the freaking window when the sexy cute human Talia walks in looking for a job.

Talia has been having the time of her life getting hot and heavy between the sheets with Grant for quite some time.  Realizing that she's starting to feel more than lust for Grant, Talia makes the decision to issue him an ultimatum....give her more or end their fling!

Series:  Crescent Moon Series (Book 3)
Author:  Savannah Stuart
Genre:  Paranormal Romance

I am Ab-so-lute-ly LOVING this new shifter mini series by Savannah Stuart!  Tempting His Mate is book 3 in the series and features the mating of Ascher Kincaid and Ella Hayes.  As with the previous books in the series, Savannah Stuart makes it a point to give readers a glimpse of the couples previously featured, and how they are getting along in the Kincaid Wolf Pack.

Ascher Kincaid has been living the life of a lone wolf for more than a century....a fate he relegated himself to after losing his mate to rough jaguar shifters. Tired of being alone, Ascher makes the decision to come out of hiding and take a job as head of security at one of the pack owned resorts.  Cousin to the alpha Grant, Ascher is no stranger to shifter antics, nor is he a lightweight. In fact, Ascher is powerful enough to become an alpha of his own pack.  Especially after his time in solitude with nothing to do but hone his power, and think about all he lost when his mate died. Only participating in brief hookups with no relationship expectations, Ascher is resigned to his loveless future.....that is until he has a chance encounter with Ella Haynes which leads to the awakening of his wolf and desires he thought long buried.

Author: Cherrie Lynn
Narrator: Alix Dale

On one rebellious night, Candace decides to get a cute tattoo from the local parlor. Said parlor is owned by the sexy Brian Ross. Now, Candace and Brian are not strangers to one another because Brain once dated Candace's cousin. Candace has been in love with this man since they were first introduced but he was safely in the friend zone. Lucky for Candace, that friend zone was tossed out the window when it was time to get inked.

Hola Chickies!  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in my house, how about yours?  Well this month's list of upcoming book releases promises to give me lots of goodies to add to the list of items I need in my Christmas stocking!

Goodreads Synopsis.... Reaver by Larissa Ione (December 17, 2013)

Reaver  (Lords of Deliverance, #5; Demonica, #10)WARRIOR OF HEAVEN

Reaver is an angel with a past, a record, and a less-than-heavenly attitude. Powerful enough to fight alongside the fiercest battle angels-and crazy enough to risk his wings on a one-way mission to hell-he's agreed to go where no angel has ever gone before...to steal the most seductive and dangerous prize of Satan himself.


Harvester is one of the Fallen, a once-heroic angel who sacrificed her wings to work as an undercover agent in hell. But now her cover has been blown, and she's been doomed to an eternity of agonizing torture. Even if Reaver can snatch her away from Satan's lair, even if they can fight their way out of the underworld's darkest depths, there is one thing Harvester can never escape-her newfound thirst for an angel's blood...

OMG, I'm dying to get my hands on this one. Celie and I are long term fans of Larissa Ione and we loved the Demonica Series!

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

"I may not know myself right now, sweetheart.  But I know I wouldn't have let you go." ~Shane to Josie

I have been a fan of Rebecca Zanetti's Dark Protectors series for quite some time now so I thought I would give the Sins Brothers series a shot to see if it was just as good as Dark Protectors.  Well, I'm happy to announce that I Freaking LOVED it!

Hola Chickies! This week we're doing something a bit different for SINsual Sunday by welcoming
Ashlynne Laynne to the blog to bring us a SINsual worthy except from her latest book Blood Reborn!
A house full of guests were gathered in the next room, but Ascher became too impassioned to stop. He swept her into his arms, walking them to the wall farthest from the living room. Wrapping his fingers around the pink cotton, he tore the panties from beneath her matching gown and murmured against the hollow of her throat, “We have people in the living room.”
Her hand swiped across the black double dresser, scattering crystal figurines and papers onto the floor, adding to the mess from her earlier rage. “Ash, I so don’t care right now.” She squeezed his dick through the jeans, her tongue slipping along the pale skin of his neck. “I won’t scream if you don’t. You can be quiet, can’t you?” She grazed the razor point of one fang across the two moles near his throat.
Her action caused his cock to jump in response. Grasping a handful of her hair to lift her gaze to his, he growled, “You know what that does to me.”
“I know exactly what it does to you. Question is, what are you going to do about it?” 
Ascher tossed her on the dresser, spreading her legs to allow his fingers access to her clit. His thumb circling the swollen button, he moaned, “I’m going to take you right here on this dresser.”  
“Good, because I can’t wait until tonight.” Her fingers undid the button-fly in his jeans, her hand freeing his hard on from its denim prison. She nipped at his bottom lip, drawing blood, and then sucked on the soft flesh until the sting travelled the length of his body, making his erection pain in her hand.
Ascher knotted his fingers into the loose hair at the crown of her head. “You keep that up and you’re going to get it.”
“You promise?” With a careless lash of her clawed digits, Shauna stripped the nightgown from her body. Her bare breasts sprang free, the velvety nipples pointed with excitement. Her stare grew serious and flashed a stormy gray. “Come and get me, Ascher.”
He pulled on the French braid in her head, running his fingers along the plait until loose ribbons of dark flowing locks spilled down her back and over her face. She looked so fucking sexy, and he used every ounce of his restraint to hold back the urge to screw her into exhaustion.
Seizing her face in his hands, he took her mouth, pulling her against him and pinning his shaft to her soaked folds. “You’re mine,” he growled, edging his hips forward to feel her. The heat of her sex taunted his cock, firing an inferno in his blood. “I can’t believe you’re finally mine.”
Her head fell back in submission. “Yes. Yours. I’ll always be yours, Ascher.” She breathed winded pants. “Now fuck me.”
One minute she was restrained beneath him, her body writhing and arching against him, begging for his dick. The next, she pushed him beneath her, taking matters into her own hands. “Lie back,” she demanded, sinking to her knees and pushing him back against the wall. “I have a surprise for you.”
“Shauna, there are people in the next—Ahhh, baby what are you doing?”
“Pleasuring you.” She caught him with the full force of her silvery gaze. “Do you want me to stop?”
He felt powerless to stop her. “No.” His hands gripped the edge of the dresser, his claws shredding the black lacquered finish. “Don’t stop.”
Getting Rowdy | [Lori Foster]

Omega (Penton Legacy, #3)Title:  Omega
Series:  The Penton Legacy
Author:  Susannah Sandlin
Genre:  Paranormal Romance

Holy Smoke! Susannah Sandlin delivers a finale that kicks ass and sucks all at the same time because Omega is the final book in the series!  But.....hold on.....stop the freaking press, she's doing a spin off to the series that is sure to make fans happy! Considering how Sandlin resolved the many lingering issues of the Penton scathe, the Omega Force spin-off is sure to keep the story lines going and may even bring us a little page-time with some of our favorite characters from the series.

Omega picks up just where Redemption left off with the citizens and vampires of Penton living in Omega and trying to figure out their next move against Mathias Ludlam. Determined to make Aiden, Miran, and Will pay for their crimes against him, Mathias ramps up his forces to bring the 3 to heel and tears Penton apart in search of their elusive hideout.

Absolution (Penton Legacy, #2)Title:  Absolution
Series:  The Penton Legacy (Book 2)
Author:  Susannah Sandlin
Genre:  Paranormal Romance

The Penton Legacy just keeps getting better!  Absolution, book 2 in the series, picks up a few months after the big battle between Aidan and his brother Owen leaving the citizens of Penton scared and waiting to see if the Vampire Tribunal and Matthias Ludlam will somehow retaliate.  Absolution features Mirren Kincaid and the super funny Glory Cummings. 

 Mirren Kincaid, better known as "The Slayer" for his previous work as the Vampire Tribunal's enforcer and executioner, has been hiding out in Penton and living a shadow of a life believing he is unworthy of ever finding love and true friendship.  The only person Mirren has even come close to calling friend is Aidan and even Aidan is kept at an arm's length to Mirren.  Frequently punishing himself by using acid to burn his skin to represent the lives he has taken over the years, Mirren is unprepared for Glory to come along and turn his world upside down and make he finally acknowledge that he has a heart!

Mine to Keep (Mine, #2)Title:  Mine to Keep
Series:  Mine (Book 2)
Author:  Cynthia Eden
Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Wow! This book took me on an intense ride and at the end I felt like I left my stomach at the top of the first big hill.  Mine to Keep picks up just a few weeks after the huge showdown in Mine to Take.  We find Skye and Trace hiding away on a secluded island trying to heal from the trauma of Skye's stalker ex-boyfriend attempt to kill both Skye and Trace.  Unfortunately, the couple doesn't really have time to connect before the next crisis arrives.  Will the couple survive Trace's secrets?  Can Skye accept living in the dark and never really knowing who Trace really is outside of his relationship with her?  

I must say that I enjoyed Mine to Keep much better than I did Mine to Take mainly because Eden allows Skye to emerge as a formidable mate for Trace.  Skye has been through hell and she survived!  She allows this knowledge to propel her into reclaiming her life without being overshadowed by Trace's overprotective instincts.  Additionally, Skye faces off with Trace and demands he allow her to live her life without constantly being watched and guarded.

Holy Smoke!  I abso-freaking-lutely LOVE Shield of Winter book cover!  This one will feature the arrow Vasic and a new unknown heroine named Ivy!  While I must do an uber pout because Singh has started to focus more on the Psy race which means that I don't get my Hawk fix, I still love the series and will be *cough* calling in sick for the release of this one.  It comes out on June 3, 2014!  I like this new look for the series, how bout you?  Drop us a line and let us know what you think!

Mine to Take (Mine, #1)Title:  Mine to Take
Series:  Mine (Book 1)
Author:  Cynthia Eden
Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Every now and then I feel the need to randomly pick a book based solely on it's book cover and give it a shot.  Mine to Take was that book for me this month and while I can't say that I LOVED it, I can say it was solid book that held my interest and kept me guessing all the way to the big reveal at the end.

Trace Weston (you know like Michael Weston on Burn Notice) became enthralled with Skye Sullivan when she was just 15 years old and he was forced to rescue her from a nasty foster brother that was attempting to rape her.  The two bonded body, soul, and mind until Trace made the ultimate sacrifice by letting Skye go so that she could pursue a career as a ballet dancer in New York.  Forcing her to hate him by telling her he no longer wanted her in his life, Trace joined the military and attempted to move on with his life.  Now, ten years later, Trace is still keeping tabs on Skye from afar and fighting with himself to leave her to her life when she walks into his security company racked with fear and anguish because she has an unknown stalker.

Blood Will Tell (Chimeria #1)Title: Blood Will Tell
Series: Chimeria (Book 1)
Author: Meredith Mansfield
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Purchase the Book:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble

The Chimeria Series was gifted to me as part of this virtual tour in exchange for an honest review. After reading a description of the book, I was excited to enter the world known as Chimeria. WOW, did this book take me on a rollercoaster ride. Once I started the book, putting is down was not an option. (Sorry to all the people I ignored.)The different dynamics of each character made the perfect story.

The main character of Blood Will Tell is Valeriah, who had the good luck of being part wizard, unicorn, and werewolf. Chick has almost hit every genetic code in Chimeria. Unfortunately, werewolves are like an outcast and Vallie cannot actually shift. This made life hard for Vallie because she had to work ten times harder than everyone else. When Vallie was a child, her family was murdered by an unknown being, and she spent the rest of her childhood living with her grandfather and cousin Cristel. Once she reached adulthood, Vallie became a Portal Watch. Her whole life, Valeriah has wanted nothing more than to find the being that is responsible for murdering her family.While out on assignment, Vallie got the bad news that her grandfather was about to die. Rushing to be by his bedside, Vallie did not know how her life was about to take a tail spin.

This week our SINsual Sunday quote comes from Mine to Keep by Cynthia Eden.

His fingers slid between her legs.  One yank, and her panties were gone.  He stroked her, caressed her, had her own fingers twisting in the bed covers as the need grew within her. ~ Trace and Skye

Hola Chickies!  Our WACKY Wednesday photo this week is often how I feel when my kids bother me while I'm reading!

...and he really meant it
Welcome to this week's On the Couch with Celie feature! We had lots of good stuff happen this week on our favorite shows!  Check it out below:


Ollie was his usual sexy self yet another week! On this episode, the story continues with Sara trying to decide if she would come out to her dad and Laurel. Laurel is now working on Ollie’s mom case and to me that is SOOO a conflict of interest…guess that was the point. Ollie should feel great that his pill popping friend is working against his family. (Did you catch the sarcasm?) Moira, Ollie’s mom, is on the fence about taking the plea deal that was offered to her because chick has some skeletons in her closet. But like the great children they are, Ollie and Thea were able to talk her into fighting. YAY TEAM! We did get a little more about what happened to Sara after the boat crash. One part of Ollie’s story was true, Sara did get sucked out the boat but she did surface. Sara had a Titanic moment after the crash by floating on a piece of the boat when the prisoner ship came along. That is how she ended up with the League of Assassins in which she spent four years with them killing people. Bringing things back to the present, Sara went AWOL from the league which is shy we have ninjas all over the place now. In the end, Sara came out to her dad and made him promise not to tell Laurel about her then disappeared. I surely do not believe that will be the last time we see of her.
