Secrets of a Chalet Girl

secrets of a chalet girl

What it’s about

Set in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Verbier, the winter playground of the rich and famous, Secrets of a Chalet Girl is the second book in Lorraine Wilson’s fabulous Ski Season series.


OK OK so the blurb doesn’t really give much away does it. Secrets of a Chalet Girl is a lovely novella from the wonderful Lorraine Wilson. Its the second book in her Ski Season Series. Set in the Slopes of Verbier its story centres on Flora and Zac whose story begins at the wedding of Holly and Scott. We of course already know Holly and Scott from the first book in the series – Secrets of a Chalet Girl. Flora is just beginning to recover after getting out of a bad relationship and as part of a dare kisses Zac during Holly’s hen night. You know the rest, girl meets boy, boy is hot, boy drags her back to his chalet.

This story follows Flora and Zac on their Holiday fling, the ups, downs, the twists and the turns.

It is a lovely way to pass an hour or two getting caught up in a short story that doesn’t require you to get heavily invested. And let me tell you this, no one – and I mean this, no one can fit a whole story into 70 odd pages the way Lorriane Wilson can. Good as she is though she will always leave you with a taste of more!

I for one am looking forward to Revenge of a Chalet girl out on December 19th. I can only imagine what Lorraine has in store for us!

Far Too Tempting


What is it all about?

Jane Black has written the breakup album of the century, earning her a Grammy, a huge legion of new fans, and the pressure to repeat her success. Sure, the heartbreak from her husband’s unconventional abandonment might have been her inspiration, but it hasn’t done her any favors in the dating department. So when Matthew Harrigan, the toughest music journalist out there, asks for an interview, Jane agrees—as long as her personal life is completely off-limits.

British, gorgeous, and way too tempting, Matthew’s the first guy Jane’s been attracted to since her husband. As she spends more time with him and their relationship heats up, though, so does her writer’s block. How can the queen of the break up pen the perfect follow-up when she’s seriously in love?

What I say
There is nothing quite like snuggling up on the couch on what may as well be a winters night with the fire blazing, something to much on and a good book. Even better when that book is from one of your absolute favourite authors and you have an advance copy. Yup thats right, ever since I read her first book, Caught Up In Us I just can’t get enough of Lauren Blakely and what have become known as ‘The Blakely Boys’.

This most recently Blakely Boy is no different, Matthew Harrigan is just as adorable and impossibly sexy, or should I say as ’eminently lickable’ as all those that came before him. Our leading lady is also just as fabulous. Jane Black, the woman who had her heart shredded and is fighting her way back.

As always I was totally hooked from the word go. Lauren Blakely always reels us in nice and quickly and we eat up the story. The only problem with that is that because we can’t get enough we read into the wee hours of the night, the story is over way too quickly and we are left with a book hangover. While that sucks as a reader I am sure it is music to an authors ears!

Far Too Tempting is also funny. While I always say I don’t ‘do’ comedy – this wasn’t comedy as such. It was witty. It was banter. It was very Lauren Blakely. If you have ever been lucky enough to have had interaction with Lauren you will know this book is all her. Even her emails are laced with it. It’s not forced humour or that she is trying to be funny, I’m guessing this is just Lauren’s personality and we are very lucky that it transpires into her books.

Basically what I am telling you is this book is awesome and you need to go and buy it.

Willing Captive

WC Banner


Title: Willing Captive

Author: Belle Aurora

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: September 26, 2013

Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets



Delilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years.
Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom.
Or so she thinks.

Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job.
There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily.

Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met.
Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right?

Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity.
What lengths would she go through to keep them?

(Author note: This is NOT a dark romance.)


WOW!! Sometimes a book stuns me and leaves me (almost) speechless. Willing Captive is one of those books. As usual, I did not read the blurb. I was expecting something along the lines of Fifty Shades, you know all dom and sub and she can leave when she wants – yada yada yada.

Was I in for a shock? Willing Captive is one of my favourite books of this year. I could not put it down which is funny because I have put off reading it for ages. It was totally gripping. Unlike most anything else I have read. The closest I think would be The Pleasures of Summer by Evie Hunter. Still though I was definitely the one held captive by Belle Aurora.

It has everything, it’s not dark but its edgy. It’s sexy yet not tacky or predictable. It’s compelling – from the outside Lily looks like she has it all. However she was lonely and isolated and had no life to speak of, then she finds happiness and it’s taken away from her again. My heart was broken for her. Did I mention the book was HOT. Nothing like a big sexy man getting in touch with his emotions. There aren’t many books I read a second time, but this will certainly make that list.

I told my sister in law to read it and thought I would share her ‘review’ with you;

photo (1)

I agree with her though. 5 blazing hot stars for Belle Aurora and Willing Captive.
Now I am off to find another fix from her collection!


A little taster?

Walking over to the door, I close it, taking my time so as to not make a sound. Once it’s shut, I open the dresser drawers, take out a pair of simple white underwear and a matching plain bra, remove the tags, then step into the panties.
As soon as I reach down to pull the panties up my legs, the door swings open. I see a scowling Nox, but when he sees the position I’m in, his scowl disappears to be replaced with a slightly gaping mouth.
I’m mortified. But the look on his face tells me he’s possibly just as mortified. Maybe more. And I certainly got the results of my experiment. Forcing down my flush to no avail, I clear my throat and check my watch. Nodding with pursed lips, I say clinically, “Forty seconds, give or take. Not bad, Nox.”

What? Who, me? Get outta here!

That is exactly how I felt earlier. Here I was driving home from College in bloody awful conditions and I heard my phone buzzing a couple of times. I had pulled into a petrol station and I had a couple of tweets. Congratulating me on my nomination for the Festival of Romance. I had no idea what they were all about. Then it happens. My phone dies. Yup, that’s kind of typical of how my days was going up til then.

I get in and plug in my phone and start up the laptop and I had a couple of Facebook notifications and more tweets. Thankfully one of them had a link. Then I almost pee’d in my pants. Like really. I have been nominated for Romance Blogger of the Year. ME!! Along with four other wonderful bloggers;

Finding Cinderella

Finding Cinderella

Findind Cinderella

What it’s about

This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone.

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen
+outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

What I thought

I think my heart literally broke reading this story. We all know Daniel as the joker of the pack, the ultimate piss taker. I thought his book would be just more of that. Should have known better. We know Colleen Hoover likes to pull at our heart strings. She didn’t just pull this time, the mean cow (only kidding!) twisted them too. I think I even heard one snap but I was so busy wiping the tears on my cheeks I couldn’t be too sure. Only, just to be a complete contradiction it was completely heart warming at the same time. It restores our faith in fate. You know that old saying “what is meant for you won’t pass you by!”. It reminds us how fragile love is and yet how strong it can make us. How with that person, our soul mate – our other half, we can overcome anything. For a novella this story packed a punch. It certainly isn’t one that I will be forgetting for a long time to come.

Oh yeah, did I mention that this book is free in all outlets?

I’d just like to add

Do you know how hard it is to make money out of writing books. I do, having friends in the industry it has become abundantly clear. We like to think it’s all glitz and glamour and these authors have it made. It’s so not true. The money we pay for books, in the early days even the signed authors don’t get a whole hell of a lot, even less if you are self published. We never hear them complain. They work so hard to bring us our books.

So when I heard that Colleen was releasing a Novella about Daniel and Six i was happy dancing all over my house. OK so maybe I only did that in my head but I was so bloody excited. Then hold up, it’s gonna be free?? Holy hell. You do know that everyone one of CoHo’s fans, and oh my God there are many, would have bought this book. It would have been a bestseller in record time. She would have made whatever money she would from it and been a happy little bunny. But no. Colleen wanted to say thank you to her fans. Her acknowledgement to fans is amazing. Never expected but much appreciated all the same. It doesn’t hurt that the book is pretty butterflying amazing either.

What Colleen Hoover said

I can’t count how many times I’ve been told I was insane for giving this novella away for free. Maybe so, but I’ve never been more excited about the a release as I have been about this one. I’m so thankful to be able to show my gratitude to all the readers who have supported me over the past two crazy years. This novella is for you, for completely changing my life.

Says it all really….We love you too Colleen!

What I thought
Any of you that are regular readers of this blog know that this is not my forte. I often say that I don’t ‘do’ paranormal but I suppose that this isn’t entirely true seeing that as time goes on I seem to be racking up quite a few paranormal books on my ‘bookshelf’.

This is the first book that I have read by Ashely Fontainne so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The result of this was me stopping for a quick coffee on my way home from 12.30 before doing the housework, lighting the fire and having dinner ready when everyone got home at 5. What really happened was we went home at 5 to a cold messy house and I made hotdogs for dinner.

I loved Ashley’s style of writing, it’s the style I like to think I write in, though she is obviously so much better at it. Its easy to read, almost like you are having a conversation and this is another reason she is able to get you hooked so quickly and easily.

A must read for all fans of paranormal and yet a great read for those who are not a fan or only skirt around the edges. I will admit I found the start of the book a tad confusing and will even say it messed with my head a little. However the further you go in everything becomes clearer. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way and many shocks in store for the reader. Ashely Fontainne has a great knack of keeping the reader hooked.

The best interview?

Of all the interviews I have done on this blog two of them still receive hits on a daily basis. With only 10 hits between them I thought I would put it out there and see who you thought deserved to be labelled ‘Best interview of 2013’ in my end of year awards.

Did you know I was having an end of year awards? No? Me either I just decided about two lines ago 😉 The seed was actually planted back in August by the lady we all have to thank for me starting this blog, none other than Carmel Harrington.

So who do you think should win this (not so) coveted title?

The fabulous Neda from The SubClub Book Club, who just cannot fathomm that her interview was so popular! I mean, of course it was. She has one of the best blogs around for us readers that like it a bit hot 😉 To have a look at Neda’s Interview click HERE.

Boots Blog Tour Banner

Brooklyn James is an author/singer/songwriter inspired by life in the Live Music Capital of Austin, Texas. This year marks the Three Year Anniversary of her first novel, The Boots My Mother Gave Me. In celebration, her camp has re-released the Anniversary Edition with a new cover (as chosen by a fan) and a new epilogue, setting up the anticipated sequel.

The Boots My Mother Gave Me – Brooklyn James

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]What they say:

‘Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through life in someone else’s shoes?

Strong-willed tomboy Harley LeBeau puts you in the boots her mother gave her, as she takes you along her journey of escape from an abusive childhood and the desire to find herself as she comes of age. Made to feel a burden to her father simply by her gender, Harley is determined to prove her worth and independence, leaving the small town she grew up in and the one boy who gave her a soft place to fall, Jeremiah Johnson. Torn between saving herself and abandoning her mother and younger sister, Harley chooses her own life in hopes they will choose theirs, too.

A mature, candid read for everyone. A must for women. The Boots My Mother Gave Me explores the dynamics of abuse and dysfunction, the courage to overcome, the strength in sisterhood, and the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mothers and daughters. Climb into Charlene the Chevelle for a fast-paced story about a girl who is tough enough to survive and tender enough to learn to trust in love.’

What I say

There is nothing that I can say about this book that will do it justice. I could rave about the depth of characters, the compelling stories and the heartbreak that runs deep but still I wouldn’t be able to tell you how good this book is. Recently I have been more drawn to New Adult and books of a more erotic nature. I wasn’t even sure I would enjoy this book but I had signed up for the tour so I had to suck it up and get on with it. Charlotte Foreman, who is over seeing this Blog Tour said to me, “I wish I was reading it again for the first time”. Now I can understand why. The book is exquisite. It’s delicate, if that makes any sense. Brooklyn James had handled a story which is heartbraking with absolute care. She didn’t over dramatise when the opportunity was there. There was no embellishment to make the unthinkable even more horrific. She dealt more with feelings than the graphics.

The Boots My Mother Gave Me left me speechless and wondering how I would ever be able to have the right words to write a review. This is it putting it out there, read this book. You simply have to. It will make you dig deep and think. Brooklyn did an amazing job here and I am so glad she rereleased it for the 3 year anniversary. Otherwise I would never have read it. I am counting down time now until her next book.

KPI Records - WKYTVThe Boots My Mother Gave Me was chosen as a Quarter Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards, and has ranked in Kindle’s Top 100 Coming of Age and Women’s Fiction. Accolades for the book include a host of radio and television appearances, book signings, live music events, televised public readings and a music video release of the title track ‘Can’t Get It Right’ from the original music soundtrack to the novel, viewable on YouTube.

“Brooklyn James’ soundtrack to her novel The Boots My Mother Gave Me does more than give a clever feminist twist to the title. Her songs serve as chapters themselves, underlining James’ deft ability as a storyteller and songwriter.” – Margaret Moser, The Austin Chronicle.

DFW Romance Book SignAuthor Bio:

Brooklyn holds an M.A. in Communication, and a B.S. in both Nursing and Animal Science. Her nursing career has seen specialties in the areas of Intensive Care and Labor & Delivery/Postpartum, which she’s hoping will come in handy as she and her handsome hubby (the inspiration behind Jeremiah Johnson from The Boots My Mother Gave Me) are expecting their first child this Christmas. You can read about such experiences on Brooklyn’s Blog, if you fancy.

A self-professed Jack-of-all-trades, she has enjoyed careers in massage therapy, personal training, teaching, day labor at a cattle company (doing everything on horseback, the old-fashioned ‘cowboy’ way), radio DJ, TV news writer and reporter, waitress, bartender, even amateur actor. To date, her most fun experiences in front of the camera have been starring in a Weezer video, being a ‘stand-in’ for Mira Sorvino on the set of TNT’s Trooper, and as background in When Angels Sing with Harry Connick Jr. Brooklyn says he couldn’t have been more of a gentleman and oh so swoon-worthy!

She takes great pleasure in performing as part of an acoustic duo in the local live music scene in Austin. Got a little video here from a set at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. Her hobbies include, spending time with family and friends, dancing until her feet are sore, weight lifting, running, paddleboarding (anything outdoors really), reading, watching The Big Bang Theory and anything on The History Channel, partaking of a good cup of Joe and trying out new and local food fare. Brooklyn also serves as a guest speaker from time to time with a focus on awareness and prevention of domestic violence and suicide, a cause near and dear to her heart.

Thank you so much for being so kind to take the time to check out my blog hop! Light & Love – Brooklyn James.

The Rocker That Loves Me

The Rocker That Loves Me

image (2)

What it’s all about

I was the fun loving, easy going, different girl—okay, different girls every night—Demon. One look into a pair of violet eyes and all of that changed. She doesn’t even realize how beautiful she is and that makes me want her even more. Realizing that she is just as damaged as I am breaks my heart. Harper is a part of me, my other half. If only she would open her incredible eyes and see how I feel… The Beauty… I knew that I wasn’t Shane Stevenson’s type. Hot rockers don’t go for plain girls like me. Years of my mother telling me just how unbeautiful I am has assured me of that. I have nothing to offer a guy that is so used to hot girls drooling over him. So why is he always there when I turn around? And why does it feel like little needles piercing my heart at the mere thought of him with someone else?

My thoughts

Oh sweet divine mother of Christ. Terri Anne Browning. How do you do it? My insides are churning even thinking of this story. I am not going to go into the plot. This is book 4 and I sure as hell don’t want to be giving anything away or spoiling previous books. After Drake’s story you would be forgiven for thinking that the story had reached its peak. I mean have you read Drake’s story? If not, why not?? Make sure to start at the beginning though with Emmie’s story. Anyhoo back to the point. The Rocker That Loves Me certainly was not any form of an anti climax, step back or toned down effort. It was f*&^ing awesome. AWESOME. Fanfreakingtastic. Oh my God I loved this story.

It was emotional, heartbreaking, hot, steamy, angsty, soft, gentle or as my dad would say “powerful gripping stuff”. I need Nik’s story like yesterday. I don’t know how we are meant to wait. I want steam coming off Terri’s fingers. Come on Terri you gotta hurry!!

A couple of teasers?


“I’m yours, Harper. And you are mine.”
I blinked, unable to understand his words at first. “What?”
“I belong to you. Tell me you know that.”
My breath felt like it was trapped in my lungs all of a sudden. “Shane… I…”
“I love you, baby.”
Tears burnt my eyes and I quickly blinked them away. “Don’t say that.”
“Why not?” he asked softly.
“Because… Because…” I broke off, not completely sure why he shouldn’t say those words to me. “Because I want to believe you.”


“Still scared?” she murmured, tracing her nails up and down the length of my stiff shaft.
Reaching out, I cupped her beautiful face. “Terrified,” I assured her with complete sincerity.
I flipped Harper onto her back. We fit just as I knew we would—perfectly. The way she spread her legs for me, so trusting. My cock fit like a missing puzzle piece against her. The way those incredible breasts pushed against my chest. She was my other half, and I was going to show her just how perfect we were for each other.
I wanted to tell her. The need to make promises that I intended to keep to my last breath was almost overwhelming. I knew she wasn’t ready to hear them. So I showed her instead.

About Terri Anne Browning


Terri Anne Browning
Hated school and reading until her aunt handed over her first romance novel at the age of twelve, as crazy aunts tend to do. It gave her a passion for the written word that has only increased over the years. At sixteen she started writing her own novellas, forcing her sister to be her one woman fan club. Now she has a few more fans and a lot more passion for writing. Reese: A Safe Haven Novella was her first Indie published book. The Rocker That Holds Me changed the tables and kicked off The Rocker… series featuring the sinfully delicious members of Demon’s Wings.

A Little Too Far

Tour Banner

Today I am taking part in the Blog Tour for A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers.


What it’s about

Have you ever gone just a little too far?
Lexie Banks has.
Yep. She just had mind-blowing sex with her stepbrother. In her defense, she was on the rebound, and it’s more of a my-dad-happened-to-marry-a-woman-with-a-super-hot-son situation. But still, he’s been her best friend and confidant for better part of the last few years…and is so off limits. It’s a good thing she’s leaving in two days for a year abroad in Rome. But even thousands of miles away, Lexie can’t seem to escape trouble. Raised Catholic, she goes to Confession in hopes of alleviating some of her guilt…and maybe not burning in hell. Instead, she stumbles out of the confessional right into Alessandro Moretti, a young and very easy on the eyes deacon…only eight months away from becoming a priest. Lexie and Alessandro grow closer, and when Alessandro’s signals start changing despite his vow of celibacy, she doesn’t know what to think. She’s torn between falling in love with the man she shouldn’t want and the man she can’t have. And she isn’t sure how she can live with herself either way.

I must admit when I first read the blurb for this book I was worried. I thought for part it sounded too much like another very popular book even with a similar name and wondered was it going to play out along the same lines. Answer, No.

A Little Too Far is an emotional read. It is a sexy read. The book is hot. Not only that though it has stuff going on beneath the surface. It has its dark elements which gives the story a bit of grit to keep you hooked.

I actually saw it described as a cross between Thornbirds and Flowers in the Attic and I am a big fan of both.

Looking at the blurb of this book you might not feel the pull but take my word for it, pick it up and give it a whirl. I doubt you will be disappointed.


A Little Too Far is a great read that will certainly warm you up on these cold wintery nights.
