From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect night.

For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I’m not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine—multimillionaire. But who’s counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I’ve ever met, who happens to like dancing, witty banter, and hot, passionate up-against-the-wall sex as much as I do.

There’s no need for names or business cards. And that’s why I’m eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge…bank account.

Everything’s coming up aces. Until the next day when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash — a lot complicated.)

***

He’s charming, brilliant, an incredible lover, and right now I want to stab fate in the eyeballs.

I’ve had one goal I’ve been working toward, and lo and behold, my mystery man is the very person who stands between me and my dream job. A job I desperately need since my hard-knock life has nothing in common with his star-kissed one.

But it’s time to put that fairytale night behind me, and focus on learning what makes him tick. Too bad it turns out his quirks are my quirks, and his love affair with New York matches mine.

And as we spend our days together, I discover something else that feels like a cruel twist of fate — I’m falling for this naughty prince charming, and that’s not an ending I can write to our story.

REVIEW:

Once more Lauren Blakely has done it again, written a book that has the most wonderful man in it. I’m so in love with Flynn who is a thoroughly nice guy with such an awesome personality. Having been bitten in the past by a woman who wanted him for his bank balance. Flynn just finds it hard to trust women. As soon as he met Sabrina it was lust at first sight.
Our heroine Sabrina is feisty, intelligent who also has plenty of heart. I loved this book, it was entertaining, funny and Lauren at her best. I can’t wait to get the audiobook. They first meet at a masquerade party, both wearing costumes and masks. They just clicked and decided to meet again. Of course their journey to their happy ever after is paved with great entertainment. This one is a must buy

ARC Review: DARK DESIRES ( A Novel of The Dark Ones ) By AJA JAMES @megami771 @RABTBookTours

 

Paranormal / Fantasy Romance
Date Published: April 5, 2018

“A human and a vampire. An Assassin and his target. They made an impossibility possible, despite his past, despite their present. They had the future—they had Eternity.”
 
Ryu Takamura is the Dark Ones’ Assassin. He has never missed his target…until now. Until her.
 
Ava Monroe is a talented geneticist who holds the key to the vampire race’s future…and perhaps her own as well.
 
Their attraction is explosive from the first. She would do anything to have him. He would sacrifice all to protect her.
 
But will their love triumph over seemingly impossible odds as they battle enemies new and old? Especially the demons from Ryu’s past? And deep within his heart?

REVIEW:

This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Dr Ava Monroe meets Ryu on a plane travelling to Tokyo, while Ava is a geneticist and her work is her life. The moment she meets him she is captivated and he is all she can think about.
Ryu is a vampire one of the dark ones as he was made. He is tracking Ava because of the research she is involved, and the research team she has come to work with.
This is an enjoyable series, and another exciting take on the vampire world. Ava was funny with her comments that should have stayed in her head. I absolutely loved Ryu he was HOT. That’s all for now I’m not spoiling the story, so you have to read it yourself.

About the Author
 

Aja has been writing stories since the age of six, and novels since the age of thirteen. While she’d be the first to admit that those early efforts weren’t particularly good, she sure loved putting them down on paper!
 
The best part of writing, according to Aja, is that it’s completely organic, the way the stories develop. When the inspiration hits, she writes just so she herself can learn where the characters are headed because oftentimes, they take her by surprise! It is her ultimate dream to share her stories with as many readers as she possibly can.
 
Her other loves include art, cooking, old movies (anything with Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Clark Gable, and all the song and dance numbers because she can’t watch them and not be happy!)
 
She adores taking long walks with her husband and running after her two rambunctious kids. She has traveled extensively (all seven continents except Antarctica) and has had a multi-cultural upbringing. She speaks two and a half languages and binge watch TV shows when the mood strikes.
 
Aja has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Comparative Literature and Economics and two Master’s degrees, one of which is in East Asian Studies.
