His secrets will destroy her. Taken. Humiliated. Used. With his smart mouth, dirty talking, and possessive behavior, Sebastian Brand has me hooked in the most shameless way. I’m obsessed with him. However, now that I’ve escaped the mental hospital, he seeks to control my every move. The overwhelming aloofness in his attitude and the darkness in his mind tells me there is more to this man than sheer dominance. Depravity is his playground and pain is a necessary evil. Keeping me away was his first instinct. Capturing me was his second. Claimed by a man with the exterior of an angel and the mind of a brute, I will do anything to unveil his secrets and face my own demons. A body in exchange for freedom. A heart in exchange for truth. Life is never a given. Only a certain death.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway ~ After Forever by Julie Johnstone

After Forever Banner


after forever
A year after her husband’s tragic death, all Lady Julianna Barrows wants is to be left alone and forget that most of her heart went with him when he passed. Instead, she finds herself the subject of many a matchmaking scheme and lurid offer to ease her widowhood, as well as save her fading fortune. Desperate to avoid having to remarry, she takes on a position as a tutor, only to discover that the man she’s helping unexpectedly stirs her heart and passion. Nash Wolverton boxed his way out of the London slums and into immense wealth, but he couldn’t care less about Society’s approval. Except he has his by-blow daughter’s future to consider. To ensure her acceptance into Society, he’ll endure anything―including procuring a tutor to transform him into a gentleman so he can secure a suitable, boring wife. Yet what he wants changes the moment he hires Julianna. She may be a lady, but she’s far from tedious. Bold and compassionate, she is nothing like the women of the ton. Suddenly, she’s elicited a simmering desire in him, and even a longing to love and be loved that he always thought out of his reach. Knowing what he planned to settle for can now never be enough, he vows to win her love. But as the walls she’s built begin to crumble, Julianna’s fears threaten to tear them apart and she alone must decide if protecting her heart trumps breaking Nash’s.


Excerpt

He met Julianna’s worried gaze and smiled. Was she worried for him? That was a first. No, wait. It was a second. She had been anxious for him that night at the ball, as well. Every part of him wanted to learn more about this delicate creature standing before him. Like how she happened to be here. He’d bet his fortune she’d never willingly admit her secrets. “I suppose you’re here to seduce me,” he said, forcing a serious, contemplative tone. Her lovely mouth parted. “What?” “I have to tell you, I’m not one to be easily seduced.” He dropped his voice low, teasing. “But for you I’ll make an exception.” “How very generous of you,” she replied with a smirk, high color rising on her sculpted cheekbones. He purposely yanked his clothes into a semblance of order before catching her gaze once again. He stilled his hands and narrowed his gaze. “Should I be concerned about your dogged pursuing of me? You’re not cracked are you?” “I’m beginning to wonder,” she grumbled, forcing him to press his lips together to keep from smiling. She shoved her hair over her shoulders. “Rest assured I’m not doggedly pursuing you.” “How disappointing.” He allowed the truth of his feelings to shimmer at the surface for a moment before lightening his tone. “And here I thought I must have so intrigued you at the ball that you investigated me, learned where I had my country home, and made your way here with your daughter all in the hope of encountering me and trying to talk me into marrying you.” The color on her cheeks deepened and spread, rather alluringly, to her chest. Her gaze darted away for a moment before settling back on him. “Actually, I did come here in search of you, though not with marriage in mind.” He lifted his brows slowly, even as his blood raced through his veins. He really should not keep teasing her, but it was impossible to resist. “I like how you think, Lady Barrows.” Her brows furrowed together before her eyes widened. “I’m not thinking of you like that at all. I don’t even see you in that way. More like a dog in need of training.” “Your flattery is rather lethal,” he chided playfully, enjoying the rapid reddening of her lovely skin. She pressed her hands to her cheeks while a smile played at her lips. “You’re muddling my thoughts.” “Dogs can have that effect.” “Do be serious.” “Do you want me to be a good boy and sit?” “No, roll over and play dead,” she said straight-faced. He couldn’t stop the bark of laughter that escaped him. She grinned in return. “What I meant to say before you befuddled me was, I did come here to find you, but―” “Ah, ah, ah.” He wiggled his finger at her. “I find when women insert the word but into their sentences nothing pleasant follows for the man.” “Do try and listen.” “I am.” His repressed laughter vibrated his words. “Are you always this way?” she asked with a laugh. “What way is that?” He loved how her eyes twinkled when she smiled. “Do you always show so much affection to your daughter and banter so lightheartedly with ladies you barely know?” He quirked his mouth as if he were lost temporarily in deep thought. “I do always show an enormous amount of affection to my daughter. I grew up without the benefit of knowing whether my mother or father loved me, and I never want my daughter to doubt my love. And as for bantering with ladies I don’t know, I know you.” That husky sound had crept back into his tone. Something about this woman did that to him. Her eyes grew wide so that he could see that gold flecked the green. “What is it you think you know about me, Mr. Wolverton?” “Call me Nash.” He wanted to hear his name from her lips. He couldn’t say precisely why―it was another gut desire―and one he’d never experienced. She shook her head. “I couldn’t possibly.” “You could possibly.” He leaned close as if to whisper a secret. “I’ve just given you leave to do so.” “It’s not proper,” she said, her pink tongue darting out to lick her full lips. He had a brief image of taking her mouth with his and slipping his tongue inside her warm, beckoning caverns. He had no doubt she’d be sweeter than honey. “Are you always proper, Julianna?” Her hand fluttered to her neck. “Yes. I’m rather boring that way. Are you always this improper?” “I’m afraid so. I’m rather exciting that way.” He slid one finger down her bare, silken arm from the crook of her elbow all the way to her small hand. Taking her slender, cool fingertips in his he lifted them to his lips, telling himself he shouldn’t and knowing he damn well would anyway. He pressed a kiss to the edge of her fingers, the contact of his lips to her flesh making him ache painfully.

Excerpt

Her lips were glossy and covered with a thick sheen of red. I stared at her mouth while dragging a finger across them and let the paint follow a path down her chin, over her neck, and down her chest. The stain coated the light fabric of the white dress—spoiling it, just like I was spoiling her.
“You can see right through this,” I said roughly and dragged a finger underneath the neckline of the dress. Your little pink nipples are pushing right through it—aching and ready for someone to bite them.”
I let my teeth snap in her ear and then sucked the soft skin into my mouth. “A man like me sees a woman in a dress like this, and that’s what he wants. To touch the nipples you so willingly show off, to bite, pull, tug, and suck on them. He wants to pull those sweet little tits into his mouth, let his tongue run over them until your nipples are so hard they hurt.
She was shaking, but I wasn’t going to stop there. As if to show her exactly what I was talking about, I moved the palm of my hand over her shoulder and down to her chest. I cupped one of her ripe tits in my hand, squeezing softly at first, and then wrapped my fist around it tightly and pulled.
She whimpered, and her knees shook. I was testing her, and so far she failed. As badly as she thought she wanted what I had to give, she had no fucking clue what it meant. She wasn’t ready.
I released her from my grasp and ran my hand over her clavicle, smearing the rotten red mess all over her chest and the top of the dress before moving it down over her belly.
“I could see the valley between your legs when you walked down the hallway,” I growled in her ear. “I could see your little pussy, the sweet V where I’d sink my cock. All I could think about was your long, skinny legs wrapped around my back while I fucked you right there in the hallway.”
She whined. “Please, oh God.” She grabbed the collar of my shirt and tried to pull me closer. “Fuck me, Vince.”
My cock jumped in reply, but I ignored her and went on with my ministrations. I reached the hem of her skirt, and with a swift rip, I yanked it up over her hip. There wasn’t much of it there in the first place, so it was no big task. That pissed me off even more. There were maybe three inches of lift and I could see her pussy.
Rubbing my coarse finger over her soft, silky mound, I stood back and watched her face. I was testing her, but I wasn’t going to push her. If she showed an ounce of regret, I was done. But I had to see where she stood once and for all.
Her eyes fluttered open as if she could read my thoughts. They were as wide as a newborn chick, scared and astonished, but surprised and exhilarated.
But definitely not ready to leave the nest.
I gave her pussy one more swipe of my finger and then a light slap. The shock showed clear in her eyes, and her mouth fell slack with pleasure. I could feel that she was into it, slick and warm and malleable in my hands.
“That’s right, baby,” I said gruffly. “I want to tear this pussy up. I want to make this pussy cry. You have no idea what I want to do to you, and if you don’t stop teasing me, you’re bound to find out.”
She bucked her hips stubbornly, and I narrowed my eyes. Folding my fingers, I gave her clit a hard flick with enough force to knock a dog on its ass.
“You’re not ready for this—or me,” I said, lowering my voice. “I want to defile you in so many ways, but that’s not what you want.”
“Yes,” she said. Her voice shook, and I could feel her heavy heartbeat through her dress.
“I care about what happens to you, Kelsey,” I said as evenly as I could. “That’s why I took you home—where you belonged. If you think walking around in Jayne’s clothes will do you any good, you’re completely wrong. What I want to do with your body is the same thing every other man out there wants. The only difference is, they won’t stop.”
“Don’t stop,” she said weakly, tears sprouting from her eyes. “I can handle anything from you. I love you, and you damn well know it.”
She dropped to her knees abruptly and raised her hands to undo my fly. I had a brief moment of euphoria. This was a regular fantasy of mine to have her on her knees with her mouth on me. It was too fresh and way too clear for me to think straight.
I jerked her up by her shoulders and pinned her back against the wall. “Stop!”
She snarled and fought against my hold on her. “If you don’t want me, why do you care if someone else does?”
I slammed her lightly against the door and leaned forward again so we were eye to eye. “I do want you—that’s not the problem. I want to fuck you. There’s a difference.”

Release Day Book Review ~ Hitched by Karpov Kinrade


HITCHED-LaunchBanner

HITCHED, the first book in the deliciously schmexy Red Shoe Memoirs series by
wife-and-husband writing duo Karpov Kinrade, is here!
WARNING: This book contains a lot of sex and a lot of swearing. Now go enjoy it.
Get it on Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble | Nook Add it on Goodreads
"Hitched is a deliciously fun romp in the sheets with a swoon-worthy man.  If you're looking for a sexy read, look no further."  - Courtney Cole, NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author -

Hitched-KarpovKinrade-Cover

He called me "wife." This man standing naked in front of me. Tall. Dark. Sexy as sin... He's my husband?


Disjointed images from the night before, the night I can't entirely remember, float into my mind. Meeting him in the bar. Sharing tidbits of our lives. I own a company that plans bachelor parties. He's a pediatric heart surgeon. We both live in Las Vegas, but we come from very different worlds.

And then I remember that kiss. The way his lips brushed against mine, gentle at first, then harder, deeper, with more urgency. Sex in the elevator. Hot, forbidden, delicious.

I remember the way he made me feel. The way our bodies fit perfectly together. But I don't remember marrying him. And now, he won't let me go. Dr. Sexy who saves children for a living. He wants the summer to prove we are meant to be.

I can give him a summer. But can I give him a lifetime?

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...or it changes your life forever.


This is the first book by writing duo Karpov Kinrade that I have read. Unless you want to count the children's book by Kimberley Kinrade that I read with one of my daughters a couple of years ago!

Hitched is based around a tried and true theme; woman wakes up from a drunken night in Vegas with no recollection of the night before - and lo - she's married! Not that I have a problem with this popular theme, but I started reading Hitched with an expectation of something to break it from the box I had inadvertently put it in.

The romantic story of Hitched is pretty good. Sebastian and Kacie have their lives pretty much mapped out and are on track to get what they want from their careers and friendships etc. But all that is put to the test when Sebastian decides he wants his impromptu marriage to Kacie to continue and begins wooing his reluctant and fiercely independent wife.

Kacie is not interested and immediately sets in motion an annulment, but all the flowers and gifts, and the sexy doctor himself, wear down her resolve and a relationship ensues - if only temporarily.

Hitched is a rather sex laden read, I'm not sure I'd go as far as to say the sex was erotic - exuberant yes - but I didn't really get a hot and sexy, erotic feel from it. In fact it was pretty normal sex when compared to some of the more well known erotic books hitting the headlines these days!

Overall I liked the story and Hitched was a relatively quick and easy read, although the second half of the book was filled with frequent short chapters that took away from the flow somewhat. I would also have liked more character building if anything as I found Sebastian and Kacie both lacked depth and therefore I wasn't 100% invested in them.

Still a good read for fans of an almost fairytale romance, 3.5 stars.
