Blog Tour: Indebted Inheritance by Pepper Winters

“I own you. I have the piece of paper to prove it. It’s undeniable and unbreakable. You belong to me until you’ve paid off your debts.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Being the first born daughter, her life is forfeit to the first born son of the Hawks to pay for sins of ancestors past. The dark ages might have come and gone, but debts never leave. She has no choice in the matter.

She is no longer free.

Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.

There are no rules. Only payments.

A modern day Dark Erotic Romance
This is the first part of a series that will have you gripping your e-reader and compulsively turning the page until the end.  Sometimes I'm in the mood for a dark read and Pepper is the queen of this genre.
There are a lot of people in this story that get introduced as we go along but the main two are Nila Weaver and Jethro Hawk. 
Nila  is an up and coming fashion designer who is finally beginning to reap the rewards of her success, making a name for herself.  Her father and brother are her biggest fans and very protective of her.
Jethro has just turned 29 years old and been informed by his father about what his gift will be. Nila.
"I inherited her. I preyed on her.  I owned her life and had the piece of paper to prove it.  Nila Weaver.  Mine. And my task... devour her." - Jethro
When Jethro meets Nila in person for the first time it is purely to collect on his debt.  Nila is shocked that her father hands her over to willingly and has that gut feeling that something isn't quite right.
"I didn't look back.  I should've looked back.  I should never have placed my hand into that of a monster's." - Nila
Everything that Nila holds dear is about to be taken away from her, for good.  When she discovers why Jethro sought her out she is completely blown away. 
"Turned out, I was never an individual; I was a possession to trade.  I was never unique; someone had lived my life many times before, never free, never whole.  My life was never mine. My destiny was already written.  My story began the night he came for me." - Nila
I don't want to give any more away but prepared to be completely shocked and mind f*cked, the rest of this series is going to be a no brainer 1-Click for me :)
I give this 4.5 stars
Nina's POV
Huge disappointment, Ms. Weaver.” His cold glare sent a snowstorm wiping away the bonfire in my belly. “I’m done playing games, so cut the bullshit. Time to begin the day.” His voice gave no room for interpretation. A cold draft shot down my back.
My brief reprieve from debts and horrible Hawks was over. I’d been shown something I desperately wanted, but denied it because I failed to please him.
“You could teach me…show me how…” I couldn’t make eye contact with him. Mortification painted my cheeks for both admitting I was clueless and asking a monster to coach me.
Jethro laughed. “You think that will save you from what’s coming? Was that your little plan? To make me fuck you in the hopes I might feel something for you?”

Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway for The Viper (Untamed Hearts, #1) by Kele Moon

Title: The Viper (Untamed Hearts, #1)
Author: Kele Moon
Genre: Erotic / Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2014
Publisher: Loose Id
Tour Organized by: As the Pages Turn

 Marcos Rivera is a fighter. A gang member. Someone who has seen the dark side of humankind and survived. He has lost family and gained enemies. He has stolen cars and destroyed hearts, stripping one for money and the other for pleasure. His past is haunted and his future is bleak.

Until her.

Katie Foster is a high school history teacher. Smart, strong, and sexy. She is a woman Marcos shouldn’t want. Shouldn’t touch. Shouldn’t love. He met her in Garnet, a backwards, hick town that’s the last place in the world he wants to be, but he finds himself going back for a taste of the forbidden.

Katie represents all that is good in the world, and Marcos knows he’s nothing but trouble for her perfect life. He fights and he screws. He commits crimes and he breaks the rules. He will never change and he will never escape his gang lifestyle.

Or can he?

What happens when two different people from two very different walks of life risk it all by giving into the passion that threatens to consume both of them? Can a woman who only knows how to play it safe give her heart to a man who lives hard and loves harder?

Will she survive The Viper?

4 HEARTS out of 5

4 HEARTS The Hard Way! This book was NOTHING I expected it to be and I still LOVED IT!!

It’s a Hard Knock Life …

Marcos Rivera lives life in the fast lane making cash the fast way. He tried to go pro in fighting like his cousin Chuito did, unfortunately his criminal record stopped that from happening. He quickly found himself wanting to do what came easy. Stealing. The need to make ends meet consumes his an active gang member in the heart of Miami. All the while knowing his future will abruptly end in one of two places… In a coffin buried six feet under or in prison becoming a caged man for life.

Thug life cares not who you are and has a recurring pattern of taking people out of the game no matter the race, age or creed.

He’s tried to do things the right way. He got a job and worked for hourly wages earned legally. Only it’s not easy to do when the cops are breathing down your employers back looking for crimes not taking place in their work establishment. Due to the cops zeroing in on him Marcos finds himself let go from the blue collar jobs once the employer’s has had enough of being harassed by the Miami PD.

So life the hard way it is, because in his mind it was the only way.

“You know all those things going around in your mind. The stuff you know gangs do, but you’re telling yourself I’m different.  That I’ve never done them.”
Katie shook her head in disbelief.   “I don’t care if you’ve stolen a few cars”
“We’re not talking about cars.”

Katie Foster is the EXACT opposite of Marcos. She’s a straight laced history teacher living in Garnet, a small town where everyone knows each other. Garnet is the polar opposite from the fast streets of Miami; kind of like the two main characters themselves…Katie and Marc. Hmmm…is there a hint of symbolism in there Ms.Moon? *Grins*

While visiting his cousin Chuito, in Garnet, Marc and Katie cross paths in a way neither saw coming. That meeting sticks to both of them. You see, all it took was a chance meeting where two people  connect for an impression to take root.

 Gone is the ‘sweet go by the book and obey what you say Katie.’ Now she’s the ‘don’t tell me what to do or where to go because I run my own life Katie.’ She’s bolder and she likes it. All thanks to that one night where two totally different worlds collide.

I beez in the trap
Katie attempts to reach out to Marc after that night. What should be easy instead becomes difficult. She finds herself being hit with opposition. And Marc…well he finds himself in the trap.
(NOTE: The trap is street vernacular for someone who hustles to get fast cash)

The Characters
My heart ached for Marco. He just cannot seem to catch a break. Trying to steer clear of gang life becomes nearly impossible as much as he may try. His past finds a way to bite him in the a**. He quickly gets sucked back in. What I loved was his feelings toward Katie. He really likes her and he openly admires her strength and beauty. He’s also honest with himself knowing that with his lifestyle a future with her is inconceivable.

Katie in turn is pretty much down for whatever as long as it includes Marcos being part of her life. She wants ALL of him…The good, the bad and the ugly.

My Thoughts
I loved it!! Kele Moon pulled me in and held me from beginning to end. I was actually expecting something different but found myself very happy with what I got. Two true to life characters facing everyday adversities pertaining to their lifestyle and what each has lived through. That’s all I can say without spoiling anything.

The Chemistry is explosive between Marcos and Katie. Kele Moon writes some pretty steamy scenes with these two.
The writing overall flows well and will definitely have you wanting to know the secondary characters just a bit more.

My Ratings
Characters- Sweet, Sexy and Intriguing. I want MORE Chuito
Writing Style- Strong and Genuine like it’s characters
Plot/Storyline- Good girl changes after meeting a bad boy with a troubled heart who comes off as if the whole world against him. The good girl grows a back bone and then decides she wants her bad boy.
Steam Factor- High/Steamy On a scale of 1-10 I say 7.5
Entertainment Level- From Lo-Med-Hi I say Medium
Overall- I loved it! My recommendation is READ THE BOOK!

Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!

A freckle faced, redhead born and raised in Hawaii, Kele Moon has always been a bit of
a sore thumb and has come to enjoy the novelty of it. She thrives off pushing the
envelope and finding ways to make the impossible work in her story telling. With a mad
passion for romance, she adores the art of falling in love. The only rules she believes in is
that, in love there are no rules and true love knows no bounds.
So obsessed is she with the beauty of romance and the novelty of creating it she’s lost in
her own wonder world most of the time. Thankfully she married her own dark,
handsome, brooding hero who had infinite patience for her airy ways and attempts to
keep her grounded. When she leaves her keys in the refrigerator or her cell phone in the
oven he’s usually there to save her from herself. The two of them now reside in Florida
with their three beautiful children who make their lives both fun and challenging in equal
parts–They wouldn’t have it any other way.

Blog Tour: Vanquish by Pam Godwin

Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only
It is recommended to read after Deliver, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6x8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.
I have a thing for bad boys. I always tend to fall for them in all the books I read. The badder the better. And Van fit that description, perfectly! He was the one you knew you were supposed to hate in Deliver but there was just something about him. You have to be willing to look past his dark, twisted side. Once you do, it is easy to see that he is very broken.

Amber has a whole host of issues of her own. She suffers from Agoraphobia and OCD. It is because of these conditions that Van is instantly taken by her. He witnesses her fears one night while she is attempting the task of retrieving her mail for her mailbox. Such a simple thing, yet for Amber, it is a crazy, gut wrenching, nerve-wracking ordeal. 

But her flavor of crazy is even too much for Van to take after that first encounter. He walks away but returns after realizing that Amber may be his only hope of gaining access to the one thing he wants most. He kidnaps her and that night is the beginning of a f*cked up relationship between two very f*cked up individuals. 

Yet, they balance each other. And the sex. Let's just say, make sure you have a tall cup of ice cold water and a change of undies handy! 

But can these two find relieve in one another from the demons that haunt them? Or are they too broken to ever be fixed? This a book you definitely want to read to find out the answers! 
He stalked toward her, mirroring the tilt of her head, knees and shoulders loose, and his gaze holding her prisoner. A breath away, he paused, soaking in the subtleties of her tipped-up chin, parting lips, and glossy but resolute eyes.

With the next breath, he launched, hands on her jaw, fingers spread around the back of her head.

His elbows dropped, shoulders raised, and he yanked her to him, lifting her on tiptoes, guiding her mouth, taking it. His grip twisted through her hair as he drew in her upper lip and shoved her against the fridge, following her with the weight of his body.

The kiss went fucking wild, their lips mashing in a frantic battle. His tongue plunged her mouth, attacking, thrusting in and out, possessing her movements, owning her. Breath for breath, lick after lick, he ate at her mouth, tasting, devouring.

He dropped his hands to her breasts, squeezing ruthlessly as he rolled his cock against her cunt.

His tongue tingled, his skin burned, and his head swam. God, she was a drug, and he was so fucking high.

She gripped his biceps, bit at his lips, and threw her arms over his shoulders, her fingers scratching the fuck out his back. He shuddered, loving it, but he was in control.

Reaching back, he grabbed her wrists and slammed them above her head. Their bodies ground together, his forearms pressing hers to the fridge, their tongues dancing and clashing. Chest-to-chest, hips fused together, he flexed his ass, dry humping her like a horny teenager.

Jesus, fuck, he didn't care. He wanted her.

He leaned back to study her face and found strong smoldering eyes, sharp breaths, and swollen wet lips. Whatever she saw in his expression made her mouth chase his and her fingers curl around his hands. They kissed endlessly, fueling the fire and pushing his control long past the point of discomfort before pulling back and starting all over again.

When he broke the kiss with a hand on her jaw, they panted as one, mouths open and so close their bottom lips brushed. She peered at him through lowered lashes, and he stared back in awe. What trembled between them wasn't an if? Or even a how hard? Those were foregone. The question they shared was simple.
