The Surviving Series #4
Ada Frost
Releasing Nov 28th, 2015

Her Man.

Their Hero.

His Pain.

What happens when you pray for death and you’re ignored?

You have to live.

You have to survive.

But what if the last thing you want is to take your next breath?

To the world, Ryan is a hero, an ex-marine, brother, son and protector. He has devoted his life to keeping others safe. He will do anything and everything to ensure his loved ones are protected, even if that means destroying his very own soul. After an explosion on the battlefield ends his career in the Marine’s, Ryan is sent home with an honorable discharge. But the war hasn’t ended for him.

He is home, he is free and he’s breathing, but he’s dead inside.

He wants nothing more than peace, but the nightmares in his mind will not grant him that. They taunt him, tease him and torture his waking moments. The darkness within him is slowly consuming him, blackness has seeped into his veins and is rotting his core. Ryan is a man on the edge of destruction. For once he is the one in need of saving. He needs a saviour.

He needs her.

Ryan is commissioned as a bodyguard to Aloura Cavendish. When he initially meets her, he believes her to be a spoiled rich brat, wasting his time. But the fire inside her astounds him. When he pushes, he never expects her to push back. When he runs, she chases. For the first time in his life, Ryan has a protector willing to fight his demons. The only problem – he is too afraid to release them.


Hi! What to say about myself...I don't really have anything
interesting to offer other than I love to read, and create stories for others
to enjoy. I've always been told I have a vivid imagination, I just lacked the
confidence to pursue putting it onto the the written page. But finally I
embarked on making a single dream come true.

I love to read, and write. I only read romance, any genre really,
but it has to have a beautiful romance. I also demand a HEA, even if it takes
two or three books to get there. Reality is too broken and jaded without having
to live through the trauma and angst in a book for it to end unhappily.

Forbidden Men #7
Linda Kage
Releasing Nov 28th, 2015

the same old “girl posing as a boy” story but with a rock-n-roll twist.

Remy Curran dreams of one day being
in a band, except the group she wants to join refuses to hire a girl drummer.
So, she auditions as a guy...and makes the cut.

Becoming “Sticks,” a member of
Non-Castrato, isn’t quite what she dreamed it would be, though. She spends most
of her time keeping up the subterfuge and learning how to walk, talk, act, and
drink like a man.

But what’s even harder to deal with
is acting oblivious when the band’s heartthrob lead singer, Asher Hart, treats
her like one of the guys and not a woman. She never imagined he’d be so much
more than a pretty face with a nice voice. But he’s better than perfect. He’s
perfect for her.

When love and lies combine, Remy
must keep up the act or lose everything. But who knew lying to reach one dream
could prevent you from attaining an even bigger dream?

Asher Hart. I’ve been waiting for your book for the longest time (it feels like, anyway) and it’s finally here! YAY! I am a huge fan of Linda Kage’s Forbidden Men series. Each one of these books and heroes has something special about it/them that draws me in. Though they have mostly the same ‘formula’ there is something different about them all. All the men, all their stories are unique in some way.

Remy Curran has only wanted one thing for as long as she can remember. A chance to play with a band, a good band, as a drummer. She is an amazing musician, she just wants a chance. When she auditions for one of her favorite bands, Non-Castrato, she is sorely disappointed. Because they don’t even let her audition. Just because she’s a girl. Remy decides to have her friend make her over, dress up as a man, and auditions anyway. She blows them away and gets in the band. Awesome, right? Well, maybe it would be- if she didn’t start falling hard for the lead singer, Asher.

Putting on a little disguise to get my dream to come true should never have had the power to hurt anyone else. But I had a sinking feeling it just might upset the one person in this entire situation whom I didn’t want to hurt.

The chemistry Remy and Asher has is incredible. I know it sounds crazy, but some of my favorite parts where when Remy was her male persona ‘Sticks’. I loved the friendship she and Asher developed. Their banter was great, and she really got to know him on a deeper level as a friend this way.

If you’ve read the previous books, you know that Asher is hung up on his Incubus girl. Asher may be a lead singer of a band and good looking, but he’s not the player you would expect him to be. He wants something significant, something that means something like his friends have with their women. I loved that about him.

Her eyes were like brown pools of temptation and I was a drowning man. I tried to resist, I even pressed my forehead to hers, but I already knew it was too late. This woman owned me.

There was a lot I loved about this book- one of my favorite things, the plethora of scenes with my boy, PICK in them! I was so excited to see him in so much of the story. His relationship with Asher was perfect. I’m not gonna lie, when I saw the length of this book I was a little nervous. It’s much longer than her others, but it doesn’t feel long. In fact, it read very fast. So don’t let the length deter you from reading. This is a fantastic addition to the Forbidden Men series! And now, after reading this, I’m dying for Brandt’s story! I just know it will be epic!

Man in the Mirror by Andrea Smith


              Amazon UK:

In recognition of November being Alzheimer Awareness Month, this Limited Edition boxed set is being released, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Alzheimer's Foundation to search for the cure! This set includes both books in the Limbo Series: Silent Whisper and Clouds in my Coffee. Having traveled along on my father's seven year journey with Alzheimer's Disease, I have shared my personal story of what it was like up until the end. 

Silent Whisper - Parrish Locke, a 27 year-old fashion model never expected her life would be forever changed on that dark, snowy winter night when her car spun off the road and into a cemetery in Chester, WV. She meets someone in that cemetery that awakens Parrish to a gift that she has, and thus begins their journey back to the 1980's where some unfinished business awaits them! 

Clouds in my Coffee - Parrish Locke never in her wildest dreams thought spending some quality time at her father's ski resort in Park City Utah would present the opportunity for her to use her gift to help a stalled soul nearby! Enter the smokin' hot Marco Trevani Jr., and a cameo appearance by BAU Agent Taz Matthews who will help Parrish uncover the truth on a decades old murder! There's mystery, romance, suspense and laughter when one relationship fizzles and another one sizzles! 

Adult Content. 18+


The Man in the Mirror is such a significant title for me. I am a nurse, and the field I’ve worked in for the 7 plus years I’ve been nursing is memory care. I care for those with Alzheimers and Dementia. It’s what I do and it’s what I love to do. I’ve seen so many patients look in the mirror and not recognize themselves. Some, like Smith’s father, have conversations with this stranger. Some get aggressive thinking that someone is out to get them. I’ve actually had to cover all the mirrors in one of my patients rooms because he would try to hit the mirrors and started screaming at ‘that man’ who was invading his space.

All proceeds from this boxed set with go to support Alzheimer’s research. It’s a cause that is so near and dear to my heart. I love what I do and I love my patients but it is heart breaking to see someone lose their memories. Someone not recognize a family member. To see someone who was the kindest person their entire life scream, curse and hit you and other staff members. It breaks their family’s hearts. And there is no cure. It can happen to anyone. I love that this author is taking something from her personal life and giving back to help others.

The Man in the Mirror is a box set of Smith’s Limbo series. If you enjoy paranormal books, this is a set I highly recommend. It’s engaging and captivating. I loved looking through the past and these stories through Parrish’s eyes. The stories are romantic, they’re original, there is mystery, suspense, twists and turns. I love the unique paranormal romance that is in it. Support a great cause and pick this one up!
