I was lucky enough to receive a copy of the book in exchange for my objective review. Science fiction is one of my favorite genres, and this unique story of alien abduction caught my interest right off the bat. The characters, both major and minor, are sharply drawn, and the complex plot was convincing. The author has created a wonderfully imaginative world. I'm looking forward to the next in the series. Than being said, be forewarned, there is a cliffhanger.  

Black Hole Bounty
by Sienna Bronwyn



Destiny is written in the stars? Maybe, but when you’re in a black hole you make your own damn destiny.

It’s not every day you get abducted by an alien general, but then, Jerusa Whichab isn’t having an average day. Earth is fading from view and she’s got a decision to make – cooperate with her despotic, yet unnervingly attractive captor or receive an injection of goo. General Toyeb can’t be trusted, and his body-healing, mind-blowing Theta waves leave her panting for more. But what choice does she have if she’s to stay alive?

None, if enemy bounty hunter Berwyck dal Korth has his way. Intent on capturing Jerusa, he performs a binding ritual to ensure she cannot escape him – a ritual with unforeseen side effects for both of them. Forced into hostile proximity, Berwyck and Jerusa battle to subdue their rising attraction, but will they conquer their desire – or succumb?



My skin tingled with awareness. Someone, something was observing me from the shadows. I had to risk a peek, one tiny glance in the direction of that menacing energy.


The voice was male, clipped, but it had a hollow quality, as though it were filtered through a long tunnel. It sounded as if it came from the bottom right corner. I blinked rapidly, but my effort revealed only a fuzzy, humanoid shape. I ached to ask questions, demand answers, but couldn’t see who or what to demand them from. Where the hell were my glasses? Oh. Right. They’d fallen off during the Cessna crash. One minute I was hurtling to my death over my Caribbean island, and the next—the next my body felt as though it were being deconstructed, catapulting through the air and onto a spaceship. An experience my stomach had punctuated by hurling the beans and rice I’d had for lunch.

“Who’s there?” I croaked out. “Show yourself.”

“Are you rational?”

Good question. “Am I on a spaceship?”

“A military war vessel, to be exact.”

“Then I think I’m crazy.”

“Your behavior suggests as much.” This with a hint of irritation.

“Well, you’d act crazy, too, if you’d been through what I have,” I said, none too cautiously. “You abducted me.”

“No, I saved you.”

Was his emphasis on “saved” meant to make me feel grateful? “Thanks, much appreciated, but you have to take me back now.”

A heavy, put-upon sigh. “That is what you always say.”

An Interview with Raine

Hi Raine! Where do you find your inspiration?

Hi, thanks for having me! I’m inspired by totally random things, because I’m a very random person! Sometimes my dachshund will give me a quizzical look, and voila! Inspired! 

The days are 25 hours. How do you spent that extra hour?

I’m not even going to pretend that I would work harder or be a better global citizen with my extra hour…I’m going to straight up play video games. 

What is the book you would bring with you on a desert island?

The Dhammapada—no question. This text has seen me through the hardest times. I’ll use my imagination to make up all the rest of the stories!

How do you come up with your titles?

I’m one of those people…yes…a lot of time it’s just song lyrics I’ve borrowed!

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Sylvia Cassedy. Even though she passed away a long time ago and she wrote for children. She so easily captured emotions on the page. I know I seem clumsy next to her amazing stories. 

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Be brave always! You’re going to get bumped and jostled along the way and you’ve just got to be brave enough to get through it, even if it’s unnerving. I promise, it’s worth it in the end.

What are your current projects?

I’m currently working on a novella for a collection with LJ LaBarthe and Cate Ashwood as well as the sequel to Sweet Giordan, Please Remember and the sequel to Bowl Full of Cherries.

Twelve-year-old Autumn's world is shattered when her beloved Great-Pop, Tommy Johnson, suffers a stroke that leaves him comatose. With everyone around her resigning themselves to the inevitable, Autumn is the only one not willing to give up. She and Great-Pop have more secret stories to share with each other, after all. More stories about Roy McMillan—the great love of Tommy's life whom he lost fifty years ago.

Autumn struggles to keep Great-Pop on this side of death's door. But how can she compete with the beautiful and mysterious Valley—a place of surreal magic where the sun never fully sets? Especially when there's someone familiar in the Valley who will do everything he can to keep Great-Pop from returning to her.

But Rook had no interest in waiting for permission. He’d come forward, snaking his arms around Toren’s sheet-covered waist and pulling him hard against his body. “It’s just a kiss,” Rook breathed before he put his lips against Toren’s. Should he protest? Had he protested? Toren couldn’t remember. In that moment there was nothing but Rook’s firm lips, gently teasing his own apart. Toren kissed back, tasting the other man, sucking at his bottom lip. Rook’s mouth was intoxicating, and quite suddenly, Toren forgot why he’d ever resisted. He liked kissing Rook. But after only an appetizer’s worth of his mouth, Rook pulled away. The sensation of their mouths pressed together lingered, and Toren was dumb with the moment. Lost on it. Uncertain what they’d even been talking about.

“Do you remember me now?” Rook asked.

“Mmn,” Toren agreed, warmth lingering on his lips. “Rook.”

Silence was his reply. The arms around his waist fell away, leaving him feeling cold.

Toren slowly opened his eyes to find he was standing alone, clutching his sheet, as Rook walked away from him toward the staircase.

Release Blitz: Romancing Robin Hood @jennykaneauthor#contemporary #romance

Romancing Robin Hood by Jenny Kane 


Dr Grace Harper has loved the stories of Robin Hood ever since she first saw them on TV as a girl. Now, with her fortieth birthday just around the corner, she’s a successful academic in Medieval History, with a tenured position at a top university.

But Grace is in a bit of a rut. She’s supposed to be writing a textbook on a real-life medieval gang of high-class criminals – the Folvilles – but she keeps being drawn into the world of the novel she’s secretly writing – a novel which entwines the Folvilles with her long-time love of Robin Hood – and a feisty young girl named Mathilda, who is the key to a medieval mystery…

Meanwhile, Grace’s best friend Daisy – who’s as keen on animals as Grace is on the Merry Men – is unexpectedly getting married, and a reluctant Grace is press-ganged into being her bridesmaid. As Grace sees Daisy’s new-found happiness, she starts to re-evaluate her own life. Is her devotion to a man who may or may not have lived hundreds of years ago really a substitute for a real-life hero of her own? It doesn’t get any easier when she meets Dr Robert Franks – a rival academic who Grace is determined to dislike but finds herself being increasingly drawn to…

It was all Jason Connery’s fault, or maybe it was Michael Praed’s? As she crashed onto her worn leather desk chair Grace, after two decades of indecision, still couldn’t decide which of the two actors she preferred in the title role of Robin of Sherwood.
That was how it had all started, ‘The Robin Hood Thing’ as Daisy referred to it, with an instant and unremitting love for a television show. Yet, for Grace, it hadn’t been a crush in the usual way. She had only watched one episode of the hit eighties series and, with the haunting theme tune from Clannad echoing in her ears, had run upstairs to her piggy bank to see how much money she’d saved, and how much more cash she’d need, before she could spend all her pocket money on the complete video collection. After that, the young Grace had done every odd job her parents would pay her for so she could purchase a myriad of Connery and Praed posters with which to bedeck her room. But that was just the beginning. Within weeks Grace had become pathologically and forensically interested in anything and everything to do with the outlaw legend as a whole.
She’d watched all the Robin Hood films, vintage scenes of Douglas Fairbanks Jr and Errol Flynn, Richard Greene, Sean Connery, and Barry Ingram. As time passed, she winced and cringed her way through Kevin Costner’s comical but endearing attempt, and privately applauded Patrick Bergin’s darker and infinitely more realistic approach to the tale. Daisy had quickly learnt to never ever mention Russell Crowe’s adaption of the story – it was the only time she’d ever heard Grace swear using words that could have been as labelled as Technicolor as the movie had been.
The teenage Grace had read every story, every ballad, and every academic book, paper, and report on the subject. She’d hoarded pictures, paintings, badges, and stickers, along with anything and everything else she could find connected with Robin Hood, his band of outlaws, his enemies, Nottingham, Sherwood, Barnsdale, Yorkshire – and so it went on and on. The collection, now over twenty years in the making, had reached ridiculous proportions and had long since overflowed from her small terraced home to her university office, where posters lined the walls, and books about the legend, both serious and comical, crammed the overstuffed shelves.
Her undergraduates who’d chosen to study medieval economy and crime as a history degree option, and her postgraduates whose interest in the intricate weavings of English medieval society was almost as insane as her own, often commented on how much they liked Dr Harper’s office. Apparently it was akin to sitting in a mad museum of medievalism. Sometimes Grace was pleased with this reaction. Other times it filled her with depression, for that office, its contents, and the daily, non-stop flow of work was her life – her whole life – and sometimes she felt that it was sucking her dry. Leaving literally no time for anything else – nor anyone else. Boyfriends had come and gone, but few had any hope of matching up to the figure she’d fallen in love with as a teenager. A man who is quite literally a legend is a hard act to follow...

Release Blitz: Seduced by the Daredevil @jorjalovett #MF #Romance

Seduced by the Daredevil – Jorja Lovett
Thanks for hosting me today, and sharing in the new release madness! Seduced by the Daredevil is available now and is a bit of a departure from my usual style. It started life as a medical romance, but there are definitely moments of rom com in there, as you can see from the excerpt…

Sparks fly when 'Miss Stuffy Knickers' Andrea Bolan meets her match in daredevil Matt King. There's nothing quite like a passionate kiss to motivate a girl to jump off a building in the name of charity. With her inhibitions left far behind she begins to see the benefits of no-strings fun and sets her sights on her sexy abseiling instructor, but things don't go exactly to plan. 

Adrenaline junkie Matt fights his demons by living his life on the edge and an uptight dietitian definitely isn't his usual type. But, when they're thrown together at work there's no denying the chemistry. Lust is easy for him to deal with, but he doesn't do commitment. 

A sizzling affair catches them both by surprise but if they're not careful their pasts might just cost them any chance of future happiness. 

Matt was eternally grateful he had bought the apartment close by, overlooking the River Lagan. He had enough trouble keeping his hands off Andrea for the duration of the five-minute journey. Small talk with a driver in no obvious hurry was the last thing he wanted, with seduction on his mind. He held it together until they pulled up outside the apartment block.
"Cheers, mate." He threw a few notes through the window and pulled a giggling Andrea from the passenger seat.
Lust fuelled their journey and they half-ran to the entrance of the exclusive new complex. The few steps leading to his front door were taken in such a frenzied rush to reach their destination that Andrea stumbled on those impossibly high heels.
"Are you okay?" On autopilot, he knelt down to her crumpled position on the step and carefully removed her shoe to check for any swelling.
"I'm fine." She giggled again and held up the broken heel of her shoe.
"Thank goodness that's the only casualty," he said, and swept her, and the broken stiletto, up into his arms to carry her the rest of the way. With one hand fiddling with the lock and the other cradling Andrea close to him, who said men couldn't multitask?
Once inside, he set her back onto her feet and closed the door shut with the force of his body pinning hers against it. He wanted her naked, and that damn sweater which had teased him all day needed to go. Andrea didn't resist when he lifted it to reveal the bounty beneath, but tugged at his T-shirt in response until pressing his naked skin to hers became as necessary as breathing. He impatiently hiked her top higher to strip her completely of it.
"Hold on a sec." Andrea's muffled voice came from the tangle of blue wool wedged around her head. He yanked until her head popped free, leaving that once-silky hair a veritable bird's nest.
"That's better," she said. "Now you."
He broke contact to get rid of the barrier, and those few seconds let him drink in the sight of her. In a white bra and jeans, hair mussed, and lips swollen from his tending, she was a far cry from the priss-miss he'd first encountered.
Man, what a turn-on.
The rapid rise and fall of her chest mesmerized him, but restrictive cotton denied him the full effect of her voluptuous cleavage. Eager to free her from all conservative binds, his fingers sought to unhook the fastening of her bra. A well-rehearsed tug and flick failed to open the catch, and he distracted her with a passionate kiss while he worked on it. First with one hand, then with two, he pushed and pulled to no avail.
Finally, he had to admit defeat. "I can't get this bloody thing open, Andie."
Resisting the urge to rip it off, Matt waited while she reached to undo it herself. She whipped her underwear off to release her pert breasts into view, and slung it in his direction. The bra catapulted directly into his face, the tail end popping him in the eye. Instinctively he clutched his eye and stifled a verbal wince.
"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry." Through a watery haze, he saw her hand fly to her mouth in horror.
"Don't worry, Andie. It's not your fault." He tried to blink back the watery sting to ease her guilt, but full apology mode had already kicked in.
"That was a stupid thing to do. I don't know what I was thinking."
His one good eye saw her bend to retrieve the makeshift weapon. She stood up and accidentally head-butted him between the legs, his groin suffering the next hit. His tongue nearly didn't make it either, he bit it so hard to stop from crying out. The crippling agony doubled him in two and he fought to breathe through it. When, oh when, had his tried and tested methods of seduction turned into a comedy of errors?
"Why don't we take this somewhere safer? Like the bedroom?" he asked in shallow bursts amid ragged breaths.
Andrea placed a self-conscious arm across her chest and limped to his bedroom, one foot shoeless and the other wobbling on a stiletto. He followed when the ache down below receded enough to allow movement.

Book Tour: Walk A Mile @SarahMadisonFic #Gay #Suspense #Giveaway

The awesome Sarah Madison is here today with excerpts and a giveaway for her new release - Walk a Mile. But first let's find out a little more about Sarah.

Hi Sarah! Where do you find your inspiration?

Hi Everyone! There’s a lovely bit of dialog from one of the early episodes of Castle, in which Castle and Beckett are waiting in the hallway for someone to open the door, and Castle says something about inspiration, to which Beckett says, “I thought I was your inspiration.”

“Oh, you are, you are,” Castle assures her.

“Well, watch out. Inspiration might strike you sooner than you think.”

That’s kind of the relationship I have with inspiration. Ideas bantering with each other and bouncing off each other in my head until they suddenly erupt into a story. It’s snappy, and witty, and just plain fun. My favourite ideas usually evolve out of some kind of ‘what if?’ question. What if gargoyles came to life every night? What if touching something in a museum gave you extraordinary powers? My problem is not finding inspiration. My problem is finding the time to spin the thousands of stories in my head.

What is for you the perfect book hero?

Lord Peter Wimsey is pretty hard to beat. I read my first LPW story as a pre-teen, and let me tell you, he was a tough act to follow. Wealthy, aristocratic, wickedly clever, always quick to come up with the appropriate quotation, had he not fallen in love with a woman who wouldn’t have him, he might have come across as too, too perfect. But when Harriet Vane steadily refused him all those years, he patiently waited for her bruised heart to heal, and steadily wooed her. When push came to shove, when it came down to letting make her own choices, even if they endangered her life, he let her go. And in doing so, won her completely. The moment when Harriet first sees him clearly as a sexual being, as something distinct from the intelligent dinner companion he’d been all that time, well, let’s just say it remains one of the hottest scenes I’ve ever read.

When you start a book, do you already have the whole story in your head or is it built progressively?

Hah! This made me laugh! I do tend to be more of a punster than a plotter, though the longer I do this, the more organized I become. Typically I start with an idea. It can be one of the ‘what if?’ questions, or an image I see in my head (The Boys of Summer started out as an image of a WW2 fighter pilot leaning alongside a Spitfire…). The idea percolates in my head for a while, and then usually a title springs out of me from nowhere. This is kind of important, actually, because without a good title, the story is sunk. I have a rough idea where I want to go and what I want to do—and I begin writing. The pattern starts to develop as I go, and as I see underlying themes or ideas I want to expand upon, I start weaving those threads into the overall story. Sometimes I get stuck, and I have to let it sit for a while until the way becomes clear again, but most of the time I bang away at it until I can find the path. Too much outlining is a positive story-killer for me, but as my stories become more complex, I find that more outlining is necessary to keep up with all the threads.

What are your current projects?

I’m working on the next in the Sixth Sense series, the sequel to Walk a Mile, tentatively titled Truth and Consequences. I have plans for sequels to Crying for the Moon, my vampire/werewolf novel, as well as possibly a spin-off for the novella, Raincheck. I’m also planning a series of M/F paranormal romances set in the 1950s, in which my hero and heroine work undercover for a secret government organization investigating supernatural events. My biggest roadblock to writing is having an emotionally and physically taxing day job, which often leaves me with lots of ideas and too little energy to write. The dream is to write full-time, but that’s all it is right now, a dream.

Six months after starting their hunt for a serial killer who is still at large, FBI agents Jerry Lee Parker and John Flynn are partners in every sense. But Jerry has serious doubts about their relationship and whether they would even be together if not for the way Flynn changed after touching a mysterious artifact in a museum.

Flynn hates the extraordinary power bestowed on him by the artifact and wants nothing more than to have a normal life again. Jerry fears that without the unusual connection they forged, Flynn will no longer want or need him. Chasing after a similar artifact takes them back to Flynn's old stomping grounds in Washington D.C., where his newfound abilities uncover long-buried secrets, the kind people would kill to protect. But they aren't the only ones looking for these powerful relics, and what they discover will threaten their relationship—and their lives.

Jerry returned his attention to the tableau unfolding in the aisle. Flynn was making his way casually toward Jerry; he yawned, taking his time. 15-A hesitated; Jerry could see that he had stepped into the aisle, but was thinking of sitting back down again. Just then, the door to the toilet opened and the toddler came out into the aisle. Picking up on the air of tension, the child immediately started to wail.

15-A snapped like a wire stretched beyond its tensile strength. Whipping off his sunglasses, he reached into the pocket of his hoodie and pulled out a glass vial. Holding it up high over his head for everyone to see, he shouted, “Everybody stay where you are!”

People glanced up and turned around in their seats, startled and immediately alarmed. 15-A looked around sharply, making sure that no one was trying to rush him. Several people had started halfway up out of their seats to see what was going on; Jerry knew they were remembering United Flight 93.

15-a moved his hand in a broad semi-circle so that everyone could see the vial tucked in his palm. “I have Sarin!” he announced. “If anyone moves, I break the vial. Someone make that child shut up!”
