BLOODSTAINED BEAUTY 
BY ELLA FIELDS

RELEASE DATE: November 6th 2018


BLURB

Fresh out of college and headed straight for my dream job, I didn’t think things could get any better.
Then I met my dream man.

In an instant, my happy ever after had begun.
The life I’d stumbled into was beautiful, and the man I loved was perfect.
But perfection comes at a cost, and I’d slumbered through all the alarms.

Then I met my nightmare.
The man whose bright eyes held untamed darkness.
The man who disarmed me with his peculiar behavior.
The man whose cold, merciless hands shook me awake.
In an instant, questions started to dismantle my happy ever after.

But whoever said the truth would set you free was wrong.
It wasn’t going to repair the cracks in my naive heart.
It wasn’t going to caress my face with comforting hands and reassure me it was all just a dream.
No, the truth shoved me down a rabbit hole, and I landed in the lair of a real-life monster.

Release Blitz with Review: Heartbreak Warfare by Kate Stewart & Heather Orgeron




Title: Heartbreak Warfare
Authors: Heather M. Orgeron & Kate Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Military Romance
Release Date: November 2, 2018



Blurb

Briggs,

Remember when I said we couldn’t speak after parting ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

“All too often I’m reminded just how short life is, and because of you,
I’ll die both soldier and thief”.
 

I had a strong feeling that when I started this book, that it was going to be one of those reads. You know the ones: staying up all night to finish it because just the thought of putting off a few more chapters for another day, was unacceptable. You’re feelings are now held hostage, and your heart, the one thing that pumps blood, keeps you alive, keeps you moving, well that thing? It’s no longer your own.

Normally I go into a little bit about the plot and say a few words about the characters but for this book, I will not be doing that. My emotions are honestly still over the place and I want nothing more than to just keep these characters to myself for a little bit longer. Call me selfish I don’t care, but when you read this story you will know exactly what I’m talking about.

I can tell you exactly how each chapter made me feel, I can tell you the moment I got frustrated, and I can also tell you the time I felt my heart being broken, but for the life of me, I cannot tell you how much these characters impacted my reading journey. These people were courageous, fearless, hopeful, passionate, raw, selfish in their own right, and down right kick ass fighters. They fought with everything they had, they loved with their whole hearts, and when the time came, when it mattered the most, they were SELFLESS.

“There are only two things in this life I’m sure of: my love of this country and my love for you” 

I haven’t felt this emotionally exhausted in a long time to the point where I had to sit and think about this book and go over everything that I went through with these characters. I was heartbroken, I was inspired, and above everything else, I felt the love between each and everyone of these beautiful souls. Now I know a lot of you will read this review and think, well if you loved it so much and it was everything to you, why not 5 stars? Well its simple. My heart was BROKEN!!! 24 hours after reading this and I still held out hope that I read the last few chapters wrong and I was holding on for dear life until the end. I’m a sore loser people, and I wanted things to be different and that’s just me.

If you’re looking for a full on passionate emotional story about love, brotherhood, and sacrifices, then this one is for you. 



Excerpt

“I need you to break my heart,” she declares, wringing her hands nervously. “Give me a reason to hate you, because wanting you this way is…it’s ruining me. It’s ruining my life.”

She is dead serious.

Lifting her chin, as if ready to take a blow, her turbulent eyes implore mine. “Tell me about them. Tell me about all of the women you’ve been with since Germany.”

“No.” I shake my head. “Hell no.”

“Oh, please, Briggs. How long did you wait? A few days?” She laughs sarcastically. “I bet you didn’t even make it a day.”

She’s coming out guns blazing, and I can see it’s physically killing her to do it.

“Are we playing the guessing game? Do I get to ask how many times you’ve fucked your husband?”

“Sure,” she says with a shrug. “We’ll trade. You go first.”

She’s bluffing, and I’m calling her on it.

“Don’t do this, Scottie. You don’t really want to hear about that.”

“Humor me, Briggs.” Her eyes plead with mine. “I need to hear this.”

“Fine. You want the truth?”

She nods.

“Complete honesty?”

Again, she bobs her head.

She stands stock-still as I pace the small room, feeling the blood begin to boil beneath my overheated skin.

Fuck it.

I stalk back toward her, stopping inches away. “You really want to know that there have been so many that I’ve lost count? How they’re all blondes with blue eyes? But the blue, it’s never right, and their smiles—all wrong.”

She swats at the fresh tears that trail down her cheeks as her lips begin to tremble. Reaching out, she places a hand on my chest, and I know that she must feel the way my heart is pounding against my rib cage, reaching for her. Always reaching for her.

I jerk myself away and brand that touch to memory.

In about forty-five seconds, my heart is going to implode. I start ticking them down.

“You want me to tell you all about how I have to drink myself stupid, till their faces blur enough that I can pretend…” I pause running a hand down my face. “So that I can pretend they’re you? You want to know how fucking miserable I am? How when I slide between their legs, I close my eyes, and it’s your face I see? How I’m always careful not to kiss them because their lips are all wrong. How every time I finish I want to fucking kill myself, because I can’t stand the pain of wanting the one woman I can never have.”

Thirty seconds.

 “Is that enough?” Her eyes snap to mine. “Hate me yet?”

Face crumbling, she gasps out a sob, wrapping her arms around her shoulders.

“Come on, Scottie. Let’s not kid ourselves. I’m still the same prick you hated when we met. Nothing’s changed. I think we’ve romanticized this situation long enough, don’t you?”

Taking another step away from her, I tilt my head. “You’re a housewife,” I say snidely. “Someone else’s wife and I’m a career soldier. This isn’t exactly ideal.”

She flinches visibly, and my heart bottoms out.

Fifteen.

I cut my hand through the air. “At the end of the day, this was nothing but a big mistake. And we never would have happened if—”

“Stop,” she cries out painfully, “stop, I’m good,” she whispers before rocketing toward the door just as I reach for her, my fingers curling in the space she just left. Handle in hand, she looks back at me with the sweep of her eyes until they meet mine. That’s how we started, and it’s only fitting it’s how we should end. For the moment, we’re right back there in the place we created, where we are perfect. Where our souls line up without any visible smudge on the seams. In a place where there is still so much love, so much that I can’t stop the tear that slides out before batting it away with the back of my hand.

An identical tear runs down her cheek. “Thank you.”

Three. Two. One.

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

A modern telling of a classic tale... This isn’t a typical love story. This is a story of what happens when love is so powerful and all-consuming that it has the ability to destroy everyone involved. It’s definitely not pretty and it’s certainly not a fairytale, but it’s their story and it couldn’t be told any other way.

Review Blitz: Royally Yours by Emma Chase

                          

Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t…is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them. ** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home. And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. ** Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

Wow!! 

This one came out with a bang from all corners!! I honestly had no clue how this was going to play out but I never expected the dark intensity and brutal passionate moments. I underestimated everything when it came to this story and I’m smacking myself for not being as prepared as I should’ve been. 



“My body is in tatters, my mind is in shambles, but my heart, my heart is broken beyond repair" 

Sophia is the very definition of a good girl. She’s a hard worker, stays out of trouble, and she keeps to herself at all times. Being close to her only brother and getting his phone calls in the bright spot in her week and she wouldn’t have it any other way. But you know what they say about being comfortable in your own space? Don’t be.

Kidnapped, lost, broken, with nothing but darkness all around her, Sophie, is now looking at her new normal and it’s not good. What happens when the life you had suddenly gets taken away from you? How do you get that back? Being a fighter just became her new shield and for better or worse, this girl is not going down without a fight. 

Creed is an a league of his own. After being a part of Sophie’s rescue, he knows that he’s still not a good person and no one could ever make him see differently. But Sophie has different plans for this brooding bad boy and when they find themselves in danger again, everything changes.

I have to say that I really loved this one!! It was raw and brutal and yes I did cringe a few times, I loved it!! I loved the intensity, the desire, the fight and I loved this heroine. Sophie was remarkable, and I really admired her strength and drive. I wanted to smack Creed a few times because quite frankly, he made me stabby but I grew to love him and respect what he was trying to do. Now as for the cliffhanger, fuuuuuuuuuuck!!! I’ll leave it at that.
