I was nineteen when I became Jayden’s knight in shining armour, her Paladin. At only fourteen, she developed a teenage crush on me, the man who rescued her. I gave her time to grow, waiting for her feelings to mature. As years, when I was forbidden to touch her, passed, I never doubted she was mine. I just wasn’t allowed to show it. Circumstances send us to Colorado, away from the restrictions and over-protective brothers. At last we have a chance to be together. What could be better? What could be worse? A new club. A new life. Out of my depth, I don’t fit in. A different president and his old lady who’ve been married thirty-six years. That their marriage is on shaky ground spills over into how they treat us. For some reason, Hellfire and Moira want to force Jayden and I apart. Jay and I are just beginning. Or, is it the end? After all this time, will we make it work? Or have the years I’ve spent waiting been wasted?


After commuting for too many years to London working in various senior management roles, Manda left the rat race and now fulfills her dream and writes fulltime.  She draws on her background in psychology, the experience of working indifferent disciplines and personal life experiences in her books. Manda lives in the beautiful countryside of North Essex with her husband and two slightly nutty Irish Setters.  Walking her dogs gives her the thinking time to come up with plots for her novels, and she often dictates ideas onto her phone on the move, while looking over her shoulder hoping no one is around to listen to her.  Manda’s other main hobby is reading, and she devours as many books as she can.  Her biggest fan is her gay son (every mother should have one!).  Her favourite pastime when he is home are the late night chatting sessions they enjoy, where no topic is taboo, and usually accompanied by a bottle of wine or two.

Book one in the Surviving Series

“Perhaps love is too strong of a word, maybe it’s only a feeling touching the edges of love,
momentarily blinding our perception of the profound emotion.” 
Having never fully healed from that fateful night so long ago. Dr. Theodore Grants simply exists, traveling into the deepest darkest places of his past. Living where life and love no longer breathed. Unprepared for the cure to come. He was a prominent, renowned psychiatrist. He had it all: wealth, prestige, respect. Or so he thought. When tragedy unexpectedly struck, he was forced to help his best friend’s daughter. What he didn’t know was that he needed her, like his own breath. He fought the desire leading him astray, but in the end, he wanted only one thing: Her. She found his demons and slayed them with her innocence, crept into his heart like a spark of light. Passion sizzles, and sparks fly when the beautiful wounded Eden appears, to hell with what was right. Losing everything never factored in. All he wanted was live in the moment. Her moment. Eden and Theo’s journey continues in book two where Alex and Madison take center stage. 

*Content warning: Taboo yes, but Eden’s charter is of consenting age, it contains adult content, language, and scenes that may not be suitable for all audiences. Intended for 18+ audience. *

Beauty, brains, and money. Alexa has it all, and luck is her middle name. She’s the first to defend her family and friends and never needs help in return. Men fall at her feet—except the abrasive police officer Kent, who seems to despise her. But a series of strange events punctures her protective bubble, exposing her to fear and self-doubt. She doesn’t know who she should be more afraid of, her unknown pursuer or the sudden protective, softer side of the officer.

Kent has watched the women he loves the most in his life suffer unbearably, unable to save them himself, and now he refuses to get close to anybody. To most people, he’s a heartless, angry cop without a soft interior. Until one stormy day, fate teases him with a warm ray of Alexa’s sunshine, melting a piece of his icy heart. Kent believes he hates her, but when her brightness dims, his hate turns into something else. Something he refuses to let another person take away from him, especially the stranger lurking in the shadows.

A debt that she may not have the strength to repay.

Dr. Tessa Freeman is dedicated to the well-being of her patients, and when battered girls come into her ER, escaping from an underground slave ring, Tessa risks it all to save them. Unfortunately, no good deed ever goes unpunished.

Captured by the slave master, her fate seems worse than death, when a mysterious debt collector comes to her rescue. Locke is not what he seems, full of darkness and secrets, however, he agrees to offer her sanctuary if she repays her debt to him, by completely offering him her body.

Temptation is everywhere, and Locke plays with her mind by sharing her with his best friend Gage, when he’s not ravaging the fierce cage fighter himself. Lust and secrets blur her mind, making it difficult Tessa to know what she desires beyond the two men owning her body. The debt is hiding more than it appears and Tessa won’t be satisfied until she gets the truth. And the man she wants.


Writing for me is like being caught in the eye of a storm and loving every single minute of it.

Dear courageous readers, who dared to thread inside my wild imagination, filled with adventures of amazing women and courageous men, welcome to my world. When all seems to be lost, strength, intelligence and love will help my heroes fight back darkness, and find their way to each other. And you know what? That’s my favorite kind of story!

When I’m not writing about sexy thieves, dashing soldiers and cunning villains, I am traveling the world to find inspiration for my next story. Human nature is the greatest muse

Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3) by Sharleen Scott – Review by Emily Walsh

Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3)Caught in Make-Believe
BySharleen Scott
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Caught in Make-Believe (The Caught Series Book 3) by Sharleen Scott was a fast moving, suspense, romance that had me hooked from start to finish.

My first read by this author and this series, I was pulled in right away by the, in your face opening, that not only set the stage it showed us were this story was going to go. I love those cold opens, sometimes being tossed into a story in progress is the best way to get submerged, if done right, and Sharleen Scott more than did it right.

As this being the third book, and me being me, not starting were I should, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything, as this does read as a standalone. As I got to know more about the side characters, I learned that they have stories of their own, and if they’re anything like this one, I’m going to be in for a treat.

Jumping in we meet Sam in a very, unplents situation, we get a good look at her as a person, and I liked her right off the bat. Girl got no time for BS. Now for Jace, even though he came across as a t-bag, there is a sadness to his character, and right away you can’t help but be drawn to him. As we get more into his backstory and his dark past, you get a better sense of why he is the way that he is. As these two get closer and connect, and fall, it just makes you all melty. It progressed at a steady pace, nothing felt forced and you can’t help but root for them.

The overall plot, and subplot is intriguing and gives this story a little something special. The added suspense mystery adds a danger element to the sweetness, making the story feel balanced and entertaining. That aside the writing was easy to follow, the POV switches were clean and clear as who was talking. I never felt confused or lost. This book is damn near perfect, and I can’t wait to dive into the other two books.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will get sucked into this world and be unable to put it down.

Happy Reading

Release Blitz – False Memory by Meli Raine


Title: False Memory
Series: The False Series #1
Author: Meli Raine
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 13, 2018
It all started with the bereavement flowers with my name on them.
Not the best way to wake up,
right? I work in a flower shop. I know a funeral arrangement when I see one.
I know a killer when I see one,
too. And one is standing in my hospital room right now, straight behind the man
who saved my life.
I can’t tell anyone the truth, because that’s the fastest way to really
die. So I do the next best thing. I “lose” my memory.
I fake my amnesia.
Pretending not to remember a
brutal attempted murder has its perks. The killer is backing down, spending
less time around me, loosening the noose.
The less I claim to recall, the more my rescuer, Duff, works to help me
“remember.” I hate lying to him.
But he doesn’t understand that my memory is dangerous. To me. And to him.
Fooling everyone isn’t easy. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Except it’s starting to look like I’ve been fooling myself.
In more ways than one.


Coming Soon
Releasing December 11, 2018
