Excerpts for Always and Forever (Secrets of Shadow Hill, Book One)


I stood motionless watching her as she lay peacefully, giggling quietly to herself as she dreamed. I noticed for the first time the delicate dimples she had when she smiled. The sun was beginning to set and the air had more of a chill than when we got here. The time had melted away.
My thoughts were quickly interrupted by a loud growling sound. It went from sounding human to a deep, foul terrifying rumble of excitement. I knew instantly that was our enemy. I wondered what form they had taken to capture Ava. The Sabatinos rarely did anything in their human form. They thrived on the fear they instilled in their victims by changing forms.
Ava sat up quickly, ripping her earphones off and threw them an inch from where I was hiding. Her eyes were full of fear.
Suddenly an enormous creature emerged from the clearing charging straight to Ava. My heart raced as I quickly ran from the opposite side of the clearing as fast as I could to get there before the creature had. Although I could run much faster than a mortal, so could this creature if it were truly a member of the Sabatino coven. This was going to make for a much more difficult fight.
The creature was closing in on Ava quickly with evil red eyes fixated on its prey. I wasn’t sure if I could make it in time. Overwhelming fear shot through my entire body. I wasn’t just failing Connor, I was failing our coven.
Ava stood frozen. I started to yell for her to run when she suddenly lifted her shaking arms and yelled at the creature. Right then the creature was frozen in midair and Ava fell to the ground unconscious.


I approached the Fox house and saw Ava step out onto her porch closing a bright red door behind her. Her long sandy blonde hair hung over her face making it hard to see her eyes, but I could sense she was very upset. As I walked closer, I was struck by another very powerful aroma. I felt as if I had just stepped into a strawberry field bursting with a scent so sweet it made my mouth water. I realized instantly that Ava had enchanting abilities. To look at her was enchanting enough, but that fragrance was intoxicating.
I flew up into a tree a couple of feet ahead so I could stay out of sight, but keep a good eye on our surroundings. The wind gusted past us, blowing her hair back over her face and I could see she was in pain. She wrapped her slender arms across her purple button down shirt and started walking slowly seemingly unaware of anything around her. I could tell she did not realize I was following her. She seemed deep in her thoughts listening to music. Aiden had said that the Fox girls were good looking, but this was an understatement. Ava’s long body was overshadowed by the innocent beauty of her face. Most of those with enchanting abilities are beautiful; it is part of their seduction, I reminded myself.
Her crystal blue eyes were filled with worry as she walked down the long shady street towards a large wooded area. The perfect target. If Connor was correct, the Sabatinos had someone watching her too, waiting for the best opportunity to strike.
Ava began to slowly walk through the forest and I thought it best if I went around so that she would not hear my footsteps. I did not like having her out of my sight for any point in the woods, but I remembered how important Connor said it was to keep our presence unknown to her unless there were no other options. He said he owed it to Victoria.
Connor was always very respectful and compassionate, which made him such a good leader. I did not question him when he told me my boundaries.
I ran through the other side of the woods, zigzagging around trees and jumping over rocks and fallen branches. The damp leaves on the ground would make others slip or lose their footing, not me; my speed left my feet hardly touching the ground.
All I could think as I glided through the dense woods was why had she chosen such a secluded place to go by herself? Evil wizards or not, this was not safe for any girl alone. I came upon a clearing and noticed a large faded green water tower.

Ava was already lying on a large pile of leaves, her delicate arms stretched out to her sides, eyes closed. The wind made the leaves gently dance around her perfect body as if they could hear the music she was listening to. She looked so peaceful, so breakable…like an angel.

Balance (Off Balance, #1)Balance by Lucia Franco

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Balance by Lucia Franco
A “10” 5 star read

Let me start of by saying Lucia Franco has put herself in a whole new playing field with this forbidden romance. The story has depth, it has emotion, it has angst, hurt, and pain but it also has light hearted, witty moments. The story plays out like no other forbidden romance I’ve read. It’s not just a “let’s bang because you’re older and off limits”. No, we find ourselves caught up in an unwanted love story and in the midst of that love story is a man who struggles with the feelings and attraction he has for someone much younger than he.

“We will both be our ruin if we do not stop while we are ahead.”

Adrianna Rossi is a fifteen-year-old competitive gymnast. She has this desire buried in her to become an Elite gymnast and from there she hopes to go on to the Olympic trials. Through her father’s connections she’s able to join an Elite gym to live, eat, and breathe gymnastics. She thought she had been training with the best there was locally but much to her chagrin she finds out she still has a lot of growing to do. Through sheer will and determination she begins a grueling schedule of training, conditioning, dance, and school work. With the schedule she’s pulling there’s no way she will have time for friends, fun, or boys.

Konstantin Kova is a decorated Russian gymnast who had been in two Olympic games. He is an acquaintance of Adrianna Rossi’s father who called in a favor to help his daughter get to the Olympics. Kova is a hard ass who only wants the best for his gymnasts. He expected his gymnasts to give it their all and with Adrianna he may have expected more because she was so far behind the others and never mind the fact that he sees a little bit of himself in her. So on top of her other training she now has to do one on one training with the illustrious Kova.

“Note to self: His default personality is dick. Got it.”

Kova and Ria begin to spend a lot of time together. Alone. Through all the lifting, the stretching, the innocent touches, and heart to hearts a fifteen-year-old girl is going to start thinking about her coach in a different type of way. But this really isn’t a fifteen-year-old crush, this is real chemistry, real attraction, and even passion. Kova fights like hell to ignore the feelings he was having. He was at war with himself over it. He knows it’s wrong. He knows what could happen to both of them if it went any further than just longing glances or fleeting touches. He could lose his gym, she could lose her chance at the Olympics, and he could face jail time and being labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life. He seriously fought himself over the fact that he was feeling the things he felt. Ria is more mature than most fifteen-year-old girls. She has a drive and a desire to succeed. She knows what she wants and goes after it. Kova sees this and it endears her to him even more.

“You’re either with me or you’re against me, Kova.”

Gymnasts are put through a grueling curriculum, if you will. If you’ve watched gymnastics at all you can see the muscle tone and the near perfect 0% body fat bodies they have. They work hard for that. Nonstop. Their friends are their teammates, there aren’t many others. They literally are gymnastics. There’s no time for anything else. Lucia takes us behind the scenes and we are able to get a small glimpse at the not so glamorous life of those cute tiny gymnasts.

She gave a young girl a power that maybe she isn’t ready for but she handled it very well. She also gave her the ability to stand toe to toe with a man who, by all rights, should wield all the power in the relationship. There’s a give and take between the two of them that speaks volumes. She’s taken a not so easy taboo and turned it into a hard hitting, thought provoking, heart stopping novel.

“Fear challenged courage. It challenged the mind. Once we found courage, it meant never looking back. It persevered and defied. It gave strength to conquer the obstacles that rendered one weak.”

In a message to Lucia after reading this I sent her this:

You put us in their lives. Their day to day. You showed us how she noticed him yet how he viewed her. He was harder on her because he KNEW she was better than the shit coaches she had before. We watched their feelings grow, him fight them with all his power, an inevitable weakness in every man. So so damn good.
This is one of the very best forbidden romances I’ve been lucky enough to read. I cannot wait to see what gives us next.

Stepdaddy Dom (Step Dom) -
An erotic taboo tale  by T.S. Irons
#BDSM #erotic #taboo

My life was almost perfect. I had a job I loved that made me a ton of money. I had the perfect wife who was sexy, smart, and loved to play games in the bedroom. And then there was Riley, my eighteen-year-old stepdaughter, the bane of my existence. She was a spoiled brat that needed to be taught a lesson, and I was going to bend her into submission.

#BDSM #taboo #erotic


Step-daddy said I was a spoiled brat and needed to be taught a lesson. Well, two can play that game. If he wouldn’t play with me, I’d find someone else to take the dungeon. I didn’t plan on getting caught. Next, I was kicked out of the house, landed on the doorstep of the Church of the Brotherly Bonds. Pastor Damian was too hot to be a man of the cloth. Seeking salvation has never been more fun.

#erotic #menage #taboo

They say everything is bigger in Texas. I witnessed it first hand: the men, egos, and lifestyles. I was smack dab in the middle of it. My name is Cassandra Wade. I gave up a successful modeling career to be the trophy wife of Jackson Wade, the famous oil magnate. It would have been great if it weren’t for Jackson’s twin sons, Derek and Damon. They were polar opposites: the angel and the devil incarnate. While Jackson offered me security, Derek and Damon offered something very different. Something I tried to resist, but the urge and desire was too strong and I succumbed to temptation. What will happen if Jackson finds out? It’s sure to be an epic battle of wills because losing isn’t a word the Wade men tolerate.

Growing up in Hollywood, we’ve always had an unconventional family. Nothing is ever as it seems. When the lines between reality and fantasy become blurred, what’s a guy to do?

revelations.jpgRevelations: Confessions of a Dirty Girl by T.S. Irons
#eroticromance #suspense #99cents

Revelations is a full length novel

I lead a charmed life on the Upper East Side of New York with a doting daddy who adored me.
Then one day it all came to a screeching halt. I escaped the only life I had known. In a new town with a new identity and no friends, I had two choices—wallow in pity or embrace my new life and the possibilities it could bring me. With the FBI in pursuit, I decided to stop worrying about things I had no control over.
I was free from the proper, privileged life I had lived. I was also free of a very boring, uptight boyfriend whose idea of sex was five minutes in missionary position followed by a shower to clean himself off. Now I could take a journey and follow my own sexual urges.
It was all fun and games until Patrick Shannon showed up with a beer and pizza and wanted to talk, which lead to him spending the night. As feelings brewed beneath the surface and the FBI closed in, I grew anxious. Should I take a chance with Shannon, who pissed me off just as much as he excited me? Or should I flee the man I was falling for to stay one step ahead of the FBI?
