Billy Blade is a hardworking, hard living, razor sharp musical force. Mysterious behind his dark shades, the rough around the edges Texan mesmerizes with his haunting harmonica and tantalizes with his dangerous looks and smooth country charm. His latest album is topping the charts. He’s the newly crowned King of the Bacchus Krewe. He’s definitely living the rock star dream.

Exotic Creole beauty Thyme Bellerose couldn’t be more content. She has it all. An adoring grandmother. A handsome Tulane medical student beau. A satisfying job in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Her life is as rich as the ice cream she creates. She’s got everything under control.

But control is an illusion. Dreams can turn into nightmares. And now during Mardi Gras, otherworldly powers stand ready to shape their destinies in ways they could never imagine.

Shadow and light. Magic and mystery. Reality and myth. All come together in a place where rules bend and lines blur. Even those between life and death.

STRANGE MAGIC is a novel in two parts. Part Two, the finale of STRANGE MAGIC will be released on February 5th!

Unforgettable: Tempest #5. A Tempest/ Brutal Strength mashup. Coming soon!

Michelle Mankin is the Amazon bestselling author of the Black Cat Records series of novels.
Romance with subtext.
Reimagining classic stories with sexy rock stars and thought provoking issues.
For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn’t kill her but the hours and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.
Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock ‘n roll industry.
Things take a bit of an edgier, once upon a time turn with the Tempest series. These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.
Rock stars, myths, and legends collide with paranormal romance in a totally mesmerizing way in the Magic series.
When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.

Cover Reveal Twenty2 by Grace Waters





Have you ever reflected on your life and thought, “If I knew then what I know now, my life would be very different”?

I want to be the one to tell you my story so you’ll understand me. So you’ll see more than some guy who’s been thrown in jail more times than he can remember. More than a guy who’s thrown away a promising future in baseball to party instead. More than the thug you see when you look at all my tattoos. More than what you see when I’m messed up on drugs, or drunk on more alcohol than humanly possible.

So listen up because I have a lot to tell you. Take a walk with me through my life, at a time when everything started to go wrong, but I was too young to know.

If I could go back and know what I know now, everything would be different.

Heart of Marley by T.K. Leigh $.99






To the moon and back…

From the stars to the ocean…

That was Marley and Cameron Bowen’s secret code.

Twins born just five minutes apart, they have the perfect life… Until tragedy strikes just weeks after their eighth birthday and their father is killed by a drunk driver. Having trouble coping with the loss of her soul mate, their mother tries to find comfort in drugs and alcohol… And an abusive man with a penchant for underage girls.

No longer able to stand listening to his sister’s screams and cries every night for nearly three years, Cam takes matters into his own hands and they’re finally able to escape the nightmare.

They’re finally able to start over…

But the nightmare still haunts Marley. The years go on and she is forced to put on a smile, making everyone think that she is the perfect, well-adjusted teenager that she is supposed to be… Until she is faced with a painful reminder of her past during her senior year of high school and she’s no longer able to keep on the mask that she has been compelled to wear.

Heart Of Marley is a prequel novel to T.K. Leigh’s Heart of Light.

Sandy Grassini’s review Jan 09, 15
5 of 5 stars
bookshelves: bdsm-erotica

This book has 22 erotic poems. I have to say, I’ve never read a book of poems before, so I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, each poem more beautiful then the last. These poems seem to read like a story of a submissive and her experience with her Master. Each poem goes into erotic description of a scene. They show the intimacy and the bond between a submissive and her Master or Dominant, whichever you prefer. This book took me on a ride, and I was fanning myself because they were hot.

The writing in this book was beautifully done. I gave this book a 5 star rating because as I said, you see how beautiful the BDSM lifestyle can be.

Sandy’s Review Jan 08, 15
4 of 5 stars
bookshelves: m-m-bdsm, m-m-romance

I really didn’t know what I was going to think when I purchased this book.
This genre has to be one of my favorites. MM plus a little bit of BDSM thrown into it. If you don’t like spankings you should not read this book. If you do, you will not be let down. Brennen certainly knows how to get in trouble, and Dimitri knows how to swing a belt. I did find Brennen’s character kind of annoying at first, because I found him to be whiny. Then I took under consideration that even though he is an adult, he has every reason to be unhappy. He has been under Dimitri’s protection. He’s never been able to do things on his own. He hasn’t had a chance to grow as an adult.

I don’t understand why there is so much negativity regarding this book. I admit the writing is a bit choppy but the overall storyline is very good. I love it when two men come together and express their love for each other. Throw in some BDSM and that makes it in my opinion, even better.

I feel that this book is a great start for this author. I can’t wait to read her 2nd book Bend Over.

Their is going to be a book 2 and I can’t wait to see where this author takes Dimitri and Brennen’s relationship.
