Blog Tour: Breaker Zone By: Nicola Cameron

When Dr. Nick Gardiner goes on the run from a psychotic ex and ends up at Olympic Cove, the last thing he expects to find is his friend Ian living with two redheaded demigods and learning how to be a storm god. Adding to the confusion is a wounded merman named Aidan who washes up in the cove, requiring Nick’s professional help. As it turns out, the handsome mer and his partner Liam have other plans for the ER doctor — to claim him as their agapetos, their destined mate, and fulfill his need to submit.
I highly recommend reading Storm Season prior to reading Breaker Zone.  While it can be read as a standalone, to fully understand the events that are occurring you need to know what happened in the previous book.

If you all have ever read my reviews before (which I hope you have, but if not I’ll forgive you this time lol) you know that I love paranormal romance, M/M romance, most anything to do with the gods, and a variety of other genres as long as the book keeps my attention, pulls me in and makes me want to continue reading it, I, 99.9% of the time will love the book.  At times I am hard to please and I go through ruts where nothing I read seems to work out.  So when I had the opportunity to read something that has paranormal type elements, Greek gods, to be more specific a fantasy sci-fi twist to it, along with M/M/M ménage action, I said sign me up.  I made sure to read the first book before starting this one so I didn’t miss out on anything.  I will admit the first book, while sexy and hot, took me a while to really get into.  I wasn’t sure I would even finish it to be honest but I knew I had to try since I was reading the second book for a review.  I am glad I finished because it made me want to read the second book and Breaker Zone is, in my opinion, so much better than Storm Season was. 
The chemistry between Nick, Aidan, and Liam is explosive.  They are soul mates decreed by the Fates.  Does this mean that things are cemented immediately?  Nope not even close, mistakes were made and it took work to fill in the cracks.  Is there drama?  Hell yeah there is but it is all a part of the story and it works.
I don’t want to give anything away because I want people to give this series a chance.  It actually pulled me into its world and has me wanting the next book just so I can see where this is all going to play out.  It is different and I think that is what made me enjoy it because it wasn’t the same story over and over again.  If you are looking for something a little different than your usual read, pick up the series and give it a chance.  I think you will enjoy it like I did, oh and have a clean pair of panties close by because these sex scenes are H.O.T. hot.

Breaker Zone Excerpt © Nicola Cameron
Nick headed into the master bedroom. The bed looked insanely soft and comfortable, and he felt an intense urge to do a faceplant into the coverlet and let sleep take him away. 
Someone cleared their throat, and he turned to see Aidan and Liam in the bedroom doorway. “Where should we sleep, Nick?” Aidan asked.
That was a good question. He scrubbed at his face, trying to think. “Do you need to go back into the water?”
“No, we’re good for a day or two at least.”
“Okay. I guess there’s always the guest rooms.”
A flicker of disappointment ran through those green eyes, but Aidan nodded. “We’ll let you get some sleep.” He turned to leave.
“No.”
Nick’s eyebrows went up. “Excuse me?”
“No,” Liam repeated, calm but unmovable. “We’re supposed to be your bodyguards, according to Lord Chiron. That won’t be easy if we’re sleeping in separate rooms. We need to sleep in here with you.”
Annoyance bubbled to the surface, tempered by the allure of curling up between his mers. “Look, no offense, but I don’t think that’s a good idea,” he said, trying to sound firm. “I’m really tired, and I don’t think I’m up for anything tonight.”
Liam stepped even closer. “We’re not supposed to leave you alone,” he said, hazel blue eyes shadowed in the twilit room. “Listen to me, chuisle. You’re exhausted, and understandably so. You were threatened by your former lover, and then you had to deal with one of the most powerful gods on the planet, followed immediately by a long study session. You’ve done enough for the day. Let us help you relax.”
That low voice, like a cello with its rich intonation, was impossible to resist. “Just relax?”
Liam smiled. “More if you’re in the mood. But it’s up to you.”
He didn’t want to admit it, but he was already getting aroused at the thought of both of them touching him. “I … okay. Yes.”
The tall mer took his hands, lifting each one to his mouth in turn and kissing it. “Yes, Maighstir,” he said with a smile.
It sounded like ‘master’ with a Gaelic lilt making it into ‘maister’. Nick’s last bit of resistance disappeared, and he felt boneless with pleasure at the anticipation of what was to come. “Yes, Maighstir.”
“Mm. Good boy.”
***
Liam let Nick’s hands go. They dropped to the human’s sides and Nick’s dark head tilted, exposing the long line of muscle and tendon just waiting to be decorated with bite marks and sucking kisses. Oh, their chuisle knew how to lure attention.
But Liam knew how to wait. Instead of putting his mouth to Nick’s offered throat, he whispered, “Now, we’re going to take off your clothes.”
A shiver ran through Nick at that. Liam paused, trying to judge if it had been caused by lust or fear. The reality of the situation came back to him—the last time Nick had played with anyone, his trust had been shattered and his body damaged. They were swimming through shark-infested waters here, and one wrong move could drive their mate even further away from them.
He bent close to Nick’s ear again. “If something upsets you, you will tell us immediately, do you understand? We’ll sit down tomorrow and have a long talk about what you can and cannot do, and I swear to you that Aidan and I will respect your limits. But tonight is purely for your pleasure and comfort.”
He heard Nick swallow, and the shivering died down. “Good. Now, take a deep breath.”
Their mate’s ribcage expanded, filling with the air all his kind needed. “Another.” Liam ran his hands over Nick’s shoulders, enjoying the feel of the curved muscle there. “Good. I’m going to take off your shirt.”
Moving with deliberation, he slid all the buttons through their holes, tugging the smooth fabric off and tossing it to the side. He took in a soft breath, admiring Nick’s body. His muscles weren’t as pronounced as a mer’s, but his back and shoulders had beautifully delineated hollows and rises that implied strength and agility. Liam’s mouth watered with the sudden urge to bite into one firm shoulder.
Instead, he ran just the pads of his fingertips across Nick’s skin, tracing the outline of his upper body. On the other side Aidan had stepped closer, running his own fingers along Nick’s chest and abs. Their mate made a soft, hungry noise deep in his throat, and Aidan flashed that irresistible smile. “I think you like this, chuisle.”
“Mmm.”
Liam leaned close, nipping Nick’s earlobe again. “Use your words,” he ordered gently.
“Yes, I like this, Maighstir.” The response was soft, almost dreamy.
Liam caught Aidan’s eye, then glanced down meaningfully. At the same time he slid his hands down Nick’s arms, gently ringing his wrists and drawing them behind his back. “You’re still wearing too much.”
“Far too much,” Aidan agreed, sinking to his knees. Liam watched over Nick’s shoulder as the other mer started undoing Nick’s belt, teasingly drawing the leather through the loops, before easing down his zipper. Nick made another noise, deeper this time.

He likes being restrained and controlled. Liam felt his own desire rise, and firmly corralled it. Tonight is for him, to show him he belongs with us.

Nick gasped suddenly, twitching in his grip. Glancing down, Liam saw his other mate planting an open-mouthed kiss at the base of Nick’s hardening cock through his underwear.
“Did I say you could do that, boy?” he asked Aidan, putting a growl into his voice.
The green-eyed mer leaned back, face shadowed in the room’s dim light. “I’m sorry, Maighstir. I couldn’t resist a taste.”
Liam was tempted to correct him, but their focus had to remain on Nick. “I’ll deal with you later,” he rumbled, and saw goosebumps rise on Nick’s skin. The idea obviously appealed. “Hm. Would you like that, chuisle? I could tie you to the headboard and make you watch me punish Aidan. I’d bend him over the end of the bed and turn his ass a lovely red as you watched. Then I’d put him on his hands and knees and fuck him while he looked at you.”
This time both his mates groaned at the image he’d created. “I wouldn’t let him come for a long time,” Liam murmured, enjoyed the sensation of his own cock plumping out and pressing against the fabric of his shorts. “And every time I thrust into him, his mouth would come closer and closer to your cock, almost close enough to suck it. But never quite close enough. And all the time I was fucking him, all you could do is sit there, hard and aching so badly, and watch us.”
Nick’s head dropped back onto his shoulder. “Please, Maighstir,” he whispered.
“Mm. Such a good boy.” He nodded at Aidan, and the other mer finished taking Nick’s trousers down, then his briefs. “If you’re very good and earn it, I may let you come tonight. No promises, though.

Nicola Cameron is a married woman of a certain age who really likes writing about sex. When not writing about sex, she likes to knit. And she may be rather fond of absinthe. Well, it’s true!
Okay, the full version: Nicola Cameron has had a healthy interest in sex since puberty, but it wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to write about it. Turns out that the skills picked up during her SF writing career transfer rather nicely to erotic romance and erotica — who knew? She’s currently working on Book Three in her Olympic Cove series and hopes to turn it in by mid-January. When not writing, she’s usually making Stuff™, kissing her husband, or entertaining her cats.

Review: Saved by Venom (Grabbed #3) by Lolita Lopez

The Grabbed series by Lolita Lopez has brought a wonderful new world to me. It’s the future. We have hot alpha males out to get their brides. The brides are looking for a better life, but they’re scared of the rumors about the sky warriors. You gotta love propaganda!
Once again we have a warrior who had earned the points needed to be part of the Grab and get a bride. Once again we have a bride who doesn’t roll over and take what ever he dishes out. Even though these aspects have been the same in all three Grabbed stories, the stories themselves have been different.
Ms. Lopez has kept to the original premise of the series, without making them all the same. Each of the characters has been unique, but carries the characteristics of their race and culture.
Venom is an alpha-male who loves ropes and bondage. Dizzy has always felt most comfortable when bound or weighted down. They are a match made to be together. Venom goes all alpha-male, chest thumping and Dizzy stands up to him.
As usual, things are not as they seem. We have some intrigue, some people with secrets, others have secrets revealed, there’s a little fighting, a little mayhem and some pretty tense moments. We also have some seriously hot lovin’ going on!

I’m loving this series and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Lopez comes up with next. I know who I hope gets his HEA next. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Blog Tour, Review, and Giveaway: Hers to Cherish by Patricia A. Knight

Sci-Fi, BDSM, intrigue, mystery, hot alpha male and a feisty heroine. All of this adds up to an interesting story by Patricia A. Knight.
Ramsey DeKieran is a disgraced nobleman. Staffania Rickard is part of an elite fighting team. She’s fierce, she’s independent, and she longs to submit.
This was an interesting story. We have an entire planet that is dedicated to the idea of domination and submission. I say idea because what they really are, is assholes who want to oppress women and abuse them.
Ramsey and Steffania are sent to this planet to rescue noble woman who was taken there against her will. Ramsey and Steffania are everything that is good in the world BDSM. Not only are they what BDSM should be, they are battle hardened and don’t lose.
There were a great number of impressive things about this book. Ramsey and Steffania are two of them. They had a connection, they sizzled and they complement each other very nicely.
Some of the secondary characters were just as good. Tok was one. Love the lumbering giant. He was a nice surprise. Pansy was another. Both of them just go to show that looks can be deceiving.
The retro-gladiator games were pretty cool as well. It was neat to see these ancient games taking place on this advanced planet. Well, technologically advanced, because they were definitely backwater in their treatment of women.
There was really only one thing that bothered me about this story. When they were on planet for the games, their quarters were bugged. At times, they would be talking about things in quarter that would have been picked up on the bugs and put them in danger. There were only a couple of times it was mentioned Steffania had disabled the bugs for a few conversations, not all of them.
The same thing happened when they were at Narr’s residence. They didn’t discuss any bugs, but it seems Narr would have had them in the rooms there.

This is the third book in the Verdantia series. I’ve not read the others, but I had no problem following this one. I intend to go back and read the other two. It should be interesting!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Wikomsette by Emerald Lavere


Regina lost her husband four years ago. Now she lives a solitary life—by choice. But her preferences are tossed aside when an unseen force drops her into a remote jungle. There, a mysterious band of handsome, athletic men are waiting to show her that the woman who takes on their tribe has no chance to remain lonely…or unsatisfied. Enlisted as the group’s “Wikomsette” or “Wife”, her emotional and physical desires are at first resurrected, then fulfilled.

Eight men, but only one will truly claim her heart. Niku, the leader, is the first to re-awaken desire in Regina. Brannon, second in command is the most stunningly beautiful man she has ever seen, but his sweet talking may only lead to another heartbreak. Most of the other men could win her over as well, with some exceptions, such as Ax, who infuriates her mind as strongly as he  melts her body.

Maneuvering her way through the tribe emotionally, is not Regina’s only concern. Kept in the dark about who they are and what their mission is,  leaves her to consider several theories. Could they be covert military men? Aliens? Part of a secret cult? Eventually she will learn not  only the shocking truth of who they are, but that she may play  a much bigger role in the mission than any of them could have  guessed, changing forever the course of her life, and of all life on Earth.

Excerpt:


The doctor was gentle but, through Ax, asked a thousand questions about my health history.  He pulled a number of things I’d never seen before out of his bag.  Ax told me the doctor’s instruments were for taking and testing samples of my tissues and fluids.  That information was nerve-racking, but other than some mild discomfort, the examination wasn’t painful.  Brannon held my hand during the pelvic exam.  I told myself to pull away from him but couldn’t.  Ax looked on from the side with an unreadable expression.

“The doctor wants to know how many sexual partners you’ve had?” Ax eventually asked.

“Five,” I said, concentrating on a spot on the ceiling.  The clear gel created odd distortions and shapes as the light reflected off it.

“Plus three more now, eh?” said Ax.

“No.  I mean, two, up until yesterday.”

A few seconds of silence passed.  I glanced sideways at Ax’s dumbstruck expression.  Then he must have repeated what I’d told him, because after he spoke in the other language, the doctor and Brannon looked at me with surprise.

Brannon jumped up and ranted loudly, first at one man, then the other, and then at no one in particular.  The doctor seemed to be trying to reason with him.  Ax remained silent and motionless.

“What’s wrong?” I asked.

By way of reply, Ax shook his head, his expression vacant as he stared at the floor.

The doctor spoke to At.  Brannon sat back down, hands in his hair, muttering under his breath.

Ax’s voice was monotone when he spoke again.  “Your exam is over.  Dr. Sebastian says you are in good health and will be capable of fulfilling your purpose here.”

“And what is that?  Just what the hell is that supposed to be?  I don’t even know how I got here, but I want to go home.  You can’t make me stay!”

In a tone full of irony, Ax replied, “Can’t make you stay?  Woman, the fact is, even if we wanted to, we couldn’t make you go.”

A fan of just about every genre, she aims to write stories that contain something her readers will find sweet, and something surprising as well. If hot, explicit, sexual encounters happen to be included in those stories, well, it’s really not her fault. She is only recording the facts of what happens in the alternate universes, that the voices in her head tell her about. Often the voices won’t shut up until their stories have been told, so really, what else can she do?

Living in Southern California with her family and a fluffy dog she met at the local shelter, Ms. Lavere enjoys time with her family, reading, and walks. A former professional performer, she now dances for fun whenever possible, and sings often, and loudly, in her car. When she has alone time and is not working on her writing, she enjoys watching old Smallville episodes, because hot damn, there are some fine ass men on that show.
