Blog Tour: Identity Crisis By Rochelle Paige

A reclusive author…

Delia Sinclair is desperate to hit a looming deadline. With only two weeks to go before her manuscript is due, she heads to a remote cabin in the Smoky Mountains with no internet or cell service.


An ex-military security specialist…
Blaine West is halfway around the world when he gets a frantic message from his childhood sweetheart. She needs to lay low for awhile so he puts her in touch with someone who can help her until he can get back to town.


A dead body…
When Blaine arrives at the hotel where they were supposed to meet, he learns the body of a local author was discovered that morning but there’s no sign of his old flame.


And a case of mistaken identity…
Delia returns home completely unaware that the police believe she’s been murdered. With Delia alive and his ex still missing, Blaine has the skills and connections to find out exactly what happened and keep Delia safe.


Lead to a passion that burns out of control.
There are only a handful of authors that are an automatic, don’t even have to know what the book will be about, must have it no matter what buys; Rochelle Paige is one of those handfuls for me.  I have loved all of her books to date and when I saw that she was once again stepping outside of her normal genre and was doing a military romance with some suspense you know I was excited.  Because hello! Military! Romance! Suspense!  Okay that went a little yellow brick roadish but you get the point, I just had to read it.
Identity Crisis starts off with action and doesn’t let up until the very end.  Blaine and Delia have chemistry from the moment they met, well the moment that Blaine grabbed her that is.  I’ll admit it is instalust which moves into instalove but you know what?  For all you haters of that type of thing out there it can happen and so what if it does because the hotness factor just escalates when that happens.  Add in the sassiness of a female and the alpha badass tendencies of an ex-military man and it’s up another notch.  Were there a couple eye roll moments, yes there was but you know what I still loved the book even with them.

If you are a fan of Rochelle Paige I think you will like this one a lot.  If you are a fan of military romances with some suspense, then I think you will like this a lot.  If you are a fan of alpha badass males and sassy females, then I think you will like this.  Bottom line, give it a shot I don’t think you will be disappointed.

EXCERPT:

The sound of the garage door going up startled me, setting me into motion. It was a good thing I had been trained to make split second decisions with limited information because that skill set was being put to the test right now. I moved toward the kitchen as I ran the possible scenarios through my head. If it was Serena using a friend’s place to lay low, then I was in the clear. If it was a boyfriend or family member of the dead author, I was probably screwed. A cleaning person or friend, I might be okay. The bottom line was, I had no way of knowing which scenario I was about to face, but it didn’t matter. There wasn’t a chance in hell I was going out the back without knowing if the person walking through that door was Serena.


Right as my decision was made, I heard the sound of the garage door lowering, quickly followed by the door connecting the garage to the house opening and closing. A deep feminine sigh resonated, but I stayed in position, on the other side of the refrigerator and out of sight. The sound of footsteps got closer and then a woman entered the kitchen. I hadn’t meant to make a noise, but I shifted as soon as I realized who was standing in front of me. I moved toward her so I could cover her mouth and get her under control before she screamed and one of the neighbors came to see what was wrong. And holy fuck, there was plenty wrong with this situation since the woman was supposed to be dead.

About Me
I absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me “About time!”

Release Blitz: Black River Pack Series Box Set By Rochelle Paige

The Black River Pack Box Set.jpgMeet the Tate brothers… and the mates fate has in store for them.


Crying Wolf
Grace Shaw is on the run from her crazy ex-boyfriend who refuses to believe their relationship is over. He’s a cop and is willing to use police resources to track her down. So Grace comes up with a plan and tricks his fellow brothers in blue into thinking he is crying wolf a couple of times when he’s reported her missing. Little does she know she’ll go running into the arms of a real wolf when she finally makes her escape for real.


She just wants to be left alone, but then she meets Hunter Tate – the alpha of the Black River Pack. Grace tries to hold Hunter at arm’s length, but there’s just no reasoning with an alpha male werewolf who insists she’s his mate.



Shoot for the Moon
Eliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn’t able to save her mother or the alpha’s son and she found herself exiled – a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.


Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn’t recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it’s the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.


When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever. When another she-wolf insists she’s his mate instead, things get even more complicated. But Spencer isn’t the alpha’s second and enforcer because he isn’t willing to fight for what’s his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.



Thrown to the Wolves
Annora Channing’s entire world changes the moment she discovers she’s a bear shifter. With mated wolves for parents, she should have been a wolf also. When the man she grew up thinking was her father realizes she isn’t his daughter, he devises a plan to use her existence to his advantage in a way that will get her out from under his roof.


When her situation goes from bad to worse, Annora escapes but is badly injured in the process. Luckily, Elias Reve comes to her rescue while on his way to Wolf’s Point and the daughter he lost years ago. With nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to, Annora joins him on his journey and ends up running smack-dab into the arms of her mate.


Parker Tate knows Annora is his the moment he lays eyes on her. When he manages to mate and mark her within hours of when they meet, he considers himself lucky. Then the trouble nipping at Annora’s heels finds her and Parker realizes the path to claiming his mate won’t be as easy as he thought – especially not with the bears involved.

This is book three in the Black River Pack series. Each novella features a different couple.
In the third book of the Black River Pack series we finally get Parker’s story and it was worth the wait.  Parker knew that his mate would be thrown away so to speak from her pack but he wasn’t prepared to be so affected by Annora’s past when he learns of it.  Unlike his brothers, he doesn’t wait, he claims her the second he recognizes that she is his mate.  The twist?  She isn’t a wolf, she’s a bear so now we have a wolf alpha and a bear alpha to contend with.
I loved that even though Parker knew about his mate because of his grandmother’s visions, that he still reacted so intensely and was still amazed by his mate.  Annora’s past is not pretty and what she has suffered made me want to hunting a certain wolf, but it made her stronger in the long run and was the fated mate for Parker, who because of knowing the vision his grandmother had was more willing to help a female in need.  It just made me like him more.  Oh and the fact that he is just as hot and sexy as his brothers makes him almost perfect in my opinion.
Even though the books in this series are novellas, you don’t feel shorted because of their length.  While I wish they were full length novels just because I can’t get enough of these wolves, I can’t complain about the length of each one.  They are a great paranormal series, one that I can’t get enough of.  I started this the second it had hit my kindle, and even though at the time I had other books due for review I just needed to get my wolf shifter fix.  I really hope that Ms. Paige will continue writing about not just the wolves we have come to know and love but the bears who have come into the picture as well.

Excerpt:

The door had just started to close behind them, so I almost missed her dad’s next words. Thank fuck I didn’t though.
“Besides which, I left Annora at the table when I saw you pull up,” he explained. “Poor girl probably thinks I’ve abandoned her, and she’s still too sore to move quickly enough to catch up to me.”
“Annora,” I whispered in wonder.
My brain was catching up to my wolf as I grabbed the door and swung it open to catch up to them only to stop dead in my tracks. The scent that drifted to me was sweeter than anything I’d ever smelled before. Like cotton candy on a hot summer’s day.
Breathing deeply, I zeroed in on the curvy brunette sitting in the corner booth. She really was here. My mate.

Blog Tour: Shoot For The Moon By Rochelle Paige

Shoot for the Moon BT Banner.jpg
shoot for the moon cover.JPGEliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn’t able to save her mother or the alpha’s son and she found herself exiled – a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.

Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn’t recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it’s the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.

When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever.

But Spencer isn’t the alpha’s second and enforcer because he isn’t willing to fight for what’s his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.

This is book two in the Black River Pack series. Each novella will feature a different couple.
Eliza is cautious about not just her heart but also her ability to have visions and the impact on others that they cause.  Her visions have shown her pain, death and heartbreak.  She has seen her future with Spencer and she is scared to open her heart fully.  I could totally understand her fears based on her past, but she should have opened up to Spencer a lot sooner.
Spencer knows that he messed up, boy does he ever know and is suffering for his mistake.  He is determined to show Eliza that she can trust him, love him, everything.  He wants his mate and is willing to be patient, well as patient as a male wolf can be.  I loved Spencer, he is one sexy wolf that’s for damn sure.
If I thought that Crying Wolf was explosive with the sexual chemistry, well then Shoot For The Moon is a step below from a nuclear explosion because this is one hot book.  But it is also so much more.  It is about acceptance of someone different, forgiving someone you love for have hurting you and it is about trusting that that same person won’t ultimately hurt you once more.  I knew going in that Shoot For The Moon would be a more angst filled emotional read because of the circumstances and once again I couldn’t put it down once I started.  I am impatiently awaiting for Thrown To The Wolves to be released, which is the next book and one I can’t wait to take a bite out of once I get my greedy reviewer hands on it.  I really hope that Ms. Paige writes more shifter books in her future because she is doing a damn good job so far.
Excerpt:
“You’re in my fucking bed, Eliza. You don’t need to wait until you have solid intel. You come to me the instant something’s wrong,” I argued.
“And say what?” she asked. “‘I think Grace is in trouble because I had a dream about her’? Bullshit! The second I laid that on you, you would have been out of my bed quick as a flash. You’ve had one foot out of it since the second you decided you wanted in. You made that damn clear to me when we started this.”
“If you’d ever actually shared what was going on in that head of yours before tonight, then I would have had you mated, marked, and claimed so fast your head would have fucking spun,” I bit out. “Instead of being an ass because I was so fucking pissed off you made me feel things I was only supposed to feel for my mate.”

Review: Crying Wolf By: Rochelle Paige

4 Stars!
Running from her crazy and abusive ex-boyfriend, who is also a cop, Grace knows it will only be a matter of time before he finds her.  So far she has been able to run for months but she needs money and wants to settle down.  She ends up in a town of shifters, the only thing she has no idea that werewolves or shifters period exist.  Luckily, she lands up working for the Alpha of the Black River Pack, who unknown to her is her mate. 
Hunter doesn’t want any non-shifters working in his bar.  When he finds out that his brother hired a human, let’s just say he is far from happy. Well that is until he realizes that she is his mate.  He can sense immediately that she is on the run from danger and will need to take his time with her.  He knows that she wants him too, but he is losing his patience taking things slow.  When her safety is placed at risk he wastes no time claiming Grace for his mate.
I couldn’t put Crying Wolf down once I had started it.  I love shifter books, and to have it be by one of my favorite must reads authors was just another plus in my book.  Hunter and Grace are what each other needs.  Grace needs someone to protect her at all costs, and Hunter needs his mate, add in that she is his destiny and that makes it even better.  The sexual chemistry between these two is explosive and it was only a matter of time before there would be a reaction that had me wishing I was Grace.  Did I mention he is Alpha of his pack?  Yeah for this reviewer that just makes him more panty melting in my opinion. 

Crying Wolf is the first novella in this series and for it being the starting book it is smoking hot, addictive and it leaves you wanting more.  I want the next one now.  You are introduced to who the next couple is and I am anxiously waiting to see how it plays out.  Shifter fans, Rochelle Paige fans, and anyone looking for a quick steamy read will not be disappointed with Crying Wolf.

Review and Author Interview: Push The Envelope by Rochelle Paige

Alexa has her priorities, them being school and flying.  After having her heart broken and dealing with her ex, boys are nowhere close to being on her radar.  Her best friend Aubrey forces Alexa to go out and have fun, even when she doesn’t want to.  School keeps her busy and helping her dad by piloting the with the Mile High Club flights that allow people to charter a flight to join the Mile High Club.  She even has to co-pilot a flight that asshole Drake Bennett chartered, she is insanely attracted to him but he has been an asshole to her the last two times they ran into each other.  So when Drake sets his sight on her and declares he is making her his, things get interesting for Alexa.

Drake just transferred into Blythe College and is playing for the Rugby team.  He wants Alexa for his own, and he has his work cut out for him.  She tries to resist him but he isn’t just going to give up.  He is determined to win her over and make her his.   I will give it up to Drake though, he is one sexy alpha bad boy and wasn’t going to stop in making Alexa his. He slowly works his way into her heart.

The attraction between Alexa and Drake is instant, too bad they clash like a pissed off cat and dog at first.  I loved how Alexa didn’t take Drake’s shit when he first got on the plane with her.  These two are explosive sexually when they get together, they are perfect for one another.  Where can I find a Drake of my own?

When Drake royally fucks up, yep I said it he fucks up, I thought there would be no coming back from that.  He was such an asshole to Alexa, but once he finds out how bad he screwed up I will give it up to him he shows how much she means to him and apologizes and admits that he was wrong.  (Yep ladies he actually admits he was wrong, shocking I know since most men don’t know how to do that.)  He truly loves Alexa and doesn’t want to lose her.

I love the friendship that Alexa and Aubrey have as well.  They have been best friends since they were little girls and always have each other’s backs.  She was there for Alexa when Drake screwed up and did it in the perfect way I think.  I wish everyone had a friend like that, I know I am lucky because I do.

Push The Envelopeis the first book in the Blythe College series and already I am hooked.  I want Hit The Wall, the next book in this series, to be out right now damn it. While this is part of a series, it doesn’t have a cliffhanger ending like so many books seem too lately and while I love cliffhangers it was refreshing to not have one with this book.   Rochelle Paige has an instant fan with me, and if the rest of the series is as hot as this one was then she will have a fan for life.  Put this one on your TBR piles!!!
Hi everyone! I have Rochelle Paige with us here today at My Secret Romance to tell us a little about herself and about her new book Push The Envelope, which I loved by the way.  Thank you for being here!
Rochelle: Thanks so much for having me. I’m happy to hear you enjoyed my debut book!
Janna:  Please tell us a little about yourself.

Rochelle: I absolutely adore reading – always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing. I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
Janna:  I loved Push the Envelope.  Can you tell our readers a little about the book and if it is part of a series?

Rochelle: Push the Envelope is the first book in my Blythe College series. Alexa is a college student paying her way by offering Mile High Club charter flights through her dad’s company. She grew up in the cockpit and plans to follow in his footsteps after she gets her degree. She is sweet and sassy. Her last relationship ended badly, and she’s stayed out of the dating scene until she meets Drake. He just transferred to her school to play for their rugby team. He’s never been that interested in getting serious with anyone, but when he sees Alexa he’s determined to get to know her better and won’t take no for an answer.
Janna:  When will the next book be available because I for one can’t wait to read it.

Rochelle: Hit the Wall is set to release on March 10. It will be Jackson’s story. He wasn’t supposed to be next, but he was pretty insistent that it’s his turn.
Janna:  Where any of the characters in Push the Envelope based on anyone that you know?

Rochelle: Heck no! There are some traits that were inspired by people I know, but the characters are completely fictional.
Janna:  Who are some of your favorite authors, books, or series?

Rochelle: This is such a hard question. If I had to pick my current favorites, they would be the Corps Security series by Harper Sloan, The Neighbors from Hell books by RL Mathewson, pretty much anything written by Kristen Ashley, the Until series by Aurora Rose Reynolds, and the Fixed trilogy by Laurelin Paige.  And no… she and I aren’t related. The name is a total coincidence.
Janna:  What inspires you?

Rochelle: The craziest things spark ideas for me. For example, my teenage son mentioned a Huffington Post article about a charter company in Ohio that offers Mile High Flights. It stuck in my brain and just wouldn’t go away! Somehow that connected to memories of some of my fellow students back in the day who used to fly out of the small, local airport near my college. The next thing I knew, I was writing Push the Envelope!
Janna:  Before you became an author, what did you do for a living and what caused you to start writing?

Rochelle: Most of my professional career has been spent in marketing. I still work full-time for a local health system, but I’ve recently moved into management with them. The second part of your question is a lot more difficult to answer because my decision to write came on the heels of the two most difficult years in my life. Books have always been my escape, and during that time I read more than I ever have in my entire life. I discovered some amazing indie authors who revitalized my dream of being an author myself.
Janna:  Are you currently reading anything?
Rochelle: I just finished reading Consumed by Emily Snow. Lucas Wolfe… sigh!

Janna:  What are some of your favorite quotes from Push The Envelope?

Rochelle:  Favorite quotes:

Alexa – “Stop right there! I get that you’re hot. I am sure lots of girls will put up with your crap because they want to be with you. But that’s not me. First of all, you have no right to tell me how I can and cannot speak. Second of all, the only reason I am swearing in the first place is because you are being an A-S-S. There. Is it better for you that I spelled it instead of just saying it?”
Drake – “Shhh, Alexa. Just needed to get out of there before I did something we both regretted. The sight of your lips wrapped around that spoon. Your eyes on me as I savored the taste of you mixed with chocolate. Then that damn sigh. I swear to you that you will make that same fucking sound again, but next time it’ll be in my ear with my cock deep inside your pussy.”
Aubrey – “Not gonna happen. Not with me here to help pick up the pieces. Flying is much scarier than falling in love because the risks are bigger. You’re just used to those risks. The only way you’re going to get used to them in relationships is if you give this a real chance. No holding yourself back. Really try to make this work with Drake. As scary as it is to think about having sex with only the second person in your life, it’s better to take the plunge with someone you’re starting to care for than to go out and have a string of one-night stands, right?”
Janna:  Where can your readers get in contact with you?
Rochelle: There are so many ways to connect with me online. Here are my links:

Thank you again for taking the time to be here today and telling us more about you and your book.  I can’t wait to read Jackson’s story in Hit the Wall.
