BLURB
When Michael goes on a photographic assignment to Brazil and fails to return, Kristi and her son fly to Rio de Janeiro, desperate to find him. Instead she finds that during the cold New Jersey winter, her husband has spent his time in steamy chat rooms with Nara, a young woman desperate for attention and involved in the Rio drug world. 

As she searches for Michael in exotic but crime-ridden Rio, Kristy finds herself way out of her league. She turns to Italian-Brazilian Federal Agent Tony Lamazzo for help. As the harsh truth of her marriage brings a dose of reality to her life, she finds the temptation of getting closer to the strong, capable—and totally hot—Tony difficult to resist. She’s in Brazil on the Day of Dead, a day when Brazilians go wild. Why shouldn’t she go wild with Tony, for just one night, before returning home to start the new life alone she’ll have to learn to make for herself? 

But when her son vanishes too, Kristi doesn’t know where to turn. Michael’s affair with drug-dealing Nara has exposed them all to the murderous wrath of a ruthless drug lord, and while she longs to trust Tony, she can’t trust his powerful and politically corrupt family. But in the dangerous slums and rainforests of Brazil, the danger mounts for both Kristi and her son, and a cold-blooded enemy has an agenda of his own. If she trusts Tony, she might save her son. Or it might just get them all killed…

REVIEW

The Romance Review

I am a huge fan of romantic suspense. As such I am always looking out for books in this genre and this one was definitely a good choice. I enjoyed this story immensely. It was addictive, suspenseful, intense, original and difficult to put down. Once you begin reading, you will find it difficult to stop until you have completed the story.

LETTING EVIL IN follows the life of Kristi, a married woman who is doing everything in her power to save her marriage. However, her husband, Michael, has other ideas. He was more interested in living a life that was separate and apart from his family. His interest was so great that he decided on a whim to travel to Rio De Janeiro to meet a Brazilian girl he had met in a chat room. While in Brazil he got caught up in some nefarious activities and had ceased communicating with his wife. Kristi, believing that her husband was missing, decided to travel to Rio to search for him. While there, she found herself embroiled in the world of the drug cartel.

This story featured strong female characters. Kristi was a fascinating and refreshing heroine. She showed strength, bravery and selflessness under the most harrowing of situations. Her actions revealed the lengths that a mother would go through to protect her child. Nara, the young woman that Michael went to meet, dreamt of a better life. It was her desire to become rich no matter the price. Like Kristi she was a fighter and a survivor. It could be said that Nara was selfish and greedy, but if we look deeper, one could see that she was more of a victim of her circumstances.

LETTING EVIL IN is a story that will keep you on your toes and have you guessing at every page turn. It causes you to question just about every event. As the title suggested this story had some dark elements, but it will not creep you out. You may be tempted to skim the pages just to have a clue as to what's coming next, but this is the kind of story that is best if you uncover all the mysteries as you go along.

I loved the author's style of writing. She created an air of mystery and suspense that was perfect for the story. The main focus of the story was on the thrilling events and situations that the characters found themselves in. The romantic elements, though minimal were hot, intense and steamy.


 LETTING EVIL IN is mysterious, suspenseful and riveting. If you love stories that are suspenseful, action-packed and enthralling, then give this one a try. -

Captivated by Susan Scott Shelley: Release Blitz



Book 2 of her Game Of Love Series 

Blurb

Domingo Torres, star center fielder for the Los Angeles Riptide, needs to stay off management's radar after a Spring Training game ended in flying fists and bloodshed. He's ordered to keep a lid on his temper and a low profile for the rest of the season. Keeping his focus solely on baseball isn't a problem- until he meets his sexy new neighbor, and his thoughts shift to a lot more than his batting average.
After years of complete control in handling every aspect of her brother's multi-platinum selling rock band, Irisa Rostov is ready to crack. And it doesn't help that the band is on the verge of self-destruction. Playing peacemaker and keeping them together for the last six weeks of their summer concert series is all that matters- until she meets Dom, and the feelings he stirs up causes the guards around her heart to weaken.
Getting distracted by romance is the last thing Irisa wants, and being in the headlines is the last thing Dom needs, but their attraction is undeniable, their connection is immediate, and staying away is impossible. 
But when being captivated by each other causes their worlds to fall apart, they must decide whether they're better off staying on the bench and out of each other's lives, or if love can find a way to win.

BURNING BRIDGES: COVER REVEAL


Title: Burning Bridges
Author: Tenaya Jayne
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: 30-Nov-15
Series: The Legends of Regia #4
Publisher: Cold Fire Publishing LLC 
Cover Designer: Erika Doucesse 
Editor: Finish the Story






The deadly game continues…

Kidnapped, tortured, and used as bait, Forest’s life hangs in the balance as Copernicus moves forward to claim the throne. In the shadows, an army of slaves waits to deal Regia’s new republic a killing blow. 

In the bloody aftermath of the first strike, a wave of rage builds through the races. No one is ready to lie down and hand Copernicus what he wants, least of all Syrus. 

Lives will be lost, reluctant heroes will rise, and past flames will be rekindled. But no matter what, Syrus won’t let Forest die.





“This dream is heartless,” he mumbled. “I want to wake up.”

The word heartless stung her. What did he mean by that? 

“Why do you want to wake?” she asked. 

“I want to be free of you, but you never let me go. I’m so sick of this torture. Dreams and fantasies are all I have, and they are not enough. They only leave me with this constant pain…Flesh and blood, that’s what I want. Since I can’t touch you, I wish you would go away. Leave me to my hopeless desolation and let me go numb to your memory.” 

“What if you had me again? Not a dream, but me?”

A feral sound rumbled deep in his chest and the depth of his eyes bottomed out, pulling her down. “I don’t think you could handle what I would do to you.” His hands clenched. “I don’t know if I could handle what would happen…I think if I had you in my arms again…we both might break.”

Blood Moon (SMVS, #5.5) by J.L. McCoy
Numb…I was numb. I didn’t know where I was being taken, but I didn’t much care at the moment. I was far away from the horrors the last five days had afforded me and anything was better than that…than them. Bruised, bloodied, beat to shit, and my soul utterly crushed, I walked away from that middle-of-nowhere airstrip in Podunk Purgatory a complete shell of the person I once was. I had experienced hell on earth and was shocked I’d lived through it. The things those monsters did to me…well, I was sure I’d have nightmares about my first night in captivity for the rest of my life. Certain experiences can change a person and I knew without a doubt that I would never be the same again. You could only take so much away from a person before there wasn’t anything worthwhile left.
