What's On The Reading Radar #WishList #TBR

What am I doing? Well, this week I worked on Lucky Charm. I'm at about 15k which is good. It means I had a good writing week, mostly. I spoke to a couple of Molly's friends on the phone later in the week. They wanted to know about her last days, so, yeah Friday was a super difficult day for me. 

I'm hoping that I can get in a weekend of reading. When did finding reading time start to feel selfish? I need to reassess my thought process and toss that feeling. There is nothing selfish about reading.

There are a lot of contemporary reads coming out. I'm having trouble finding my favorite genre Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I did read some intriguing reviews this week that had me adding a couple of books to this week's wishlist. And as always, I'm always looking for recommendations. :)

Creating beauty with his large, scarred hands was his happy place—the place where he fit in the world. Although, nothing could remain perfect forever, his boyfriend of over a year decided to move on and up without him in tow. He had two choices, return to living with his friends and co-workers or take an offer too tempting to pass up.

Landon Phelps grew up in an unconventional home as the only child to Legendary Tattoo Artist Gib Phelps and mother, Peaches.

Boundaries were in place early on; he didn’t date the employees of Twirled World Ink. Sometimes rules were meant to be broken. Bezerker was his idea of perfection, large, husky and tattooed; the thick, grab-worthy beard was a bonus. So when the boyfriend became the ex, Landon decided it was time to get his man.

With the help of the matchmaking Twirled Crew, can Landon finally get Berzerker to see him as more than a friend and the employer’s son?

Notes: So. I read a review for the 2nd book in this trilogy, America Prince, and had to read it. But when I looked it up, I discovered it was a trilogy following these three characters and knew I needed to begin at the beginning. But this is so far outside what I normally reading. I usually stay far, far away from political intrigues because I usually find them unrealistic or boring. But I keep going back to the blurb for the second book...


It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

This is the story of an American Queen.

Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she's built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv's plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club's clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society's walk and talk society's talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He's proud of who he is and where he came from, and he'll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

BlurbPrepare to be ruined for every other man who comes after Krane

At the age of thirty-seven, local giant and semi-professional rugby player Krane Buchannan had spent his life hiding behind a tightly locked closet door with a wife as a shield and a gut full of regrets. Coming out may not have been his choice, but ending his marriage was. With an ugly divorce looming and a vindictive soon-to-be ex-wife making his life a living hell, Krane finds his once comfortable life in the small Scottish village changed forever. Unprepared and unwilling to admit the truth, Krane has some tough decisions to make

For years he’d felt dead inside, going through life but never actually living. He’d given up all hope of ever finding that one special person who would make him feel complete, but when he meets an attractive brunette with legs to die for at his brother’s BDSM club, Krane’s world is tipped upside down.

I’m going to ruin you for every other man. You’re mine. I own you.”

The heat and passion ignite instantly, scorching them both, and in the space of a few hours, Bailey became much more than a one-night stand. Every touch from Bailey was branded onto his skin, forever imprinted like the intricate ink-work covering his body, something which couldn’t be washed off or forgotten, but worn forever.

"Bailey was showing Krane how life should be."

Coming from entirely different worlds, both struggle to overcome their worries and fear of becoming part of each other’s life, but the searing white-hot heat which builds between them with every look can’t be ignored. With hesitant steps, Krane enters the secretive world of BDSM and Bailey cautiously re-enters the world he’s tried so hard to forget since the death of his lover and Dom. The world outside the club.
“Krane screamed power. Bailey could sense it simmering across the room and filling his lungs with his alpha aroma.”

There’s a sadness which clings to Bailey, and his unwillingness to open up about the dark secrets in his past makes Krane doubt everything, but he’s had enough of giving up and is prepared to fight for what he wants, and what he wants is Bailey. He just has to convince Bailey he wants Krane in return.

Still, she has to fight for what she wants-especially since what she wants is to depose a brutal territory overlord. For that she'll need the help of Devlin, a handsome, brave human who inflames her desire far more than any man or beast.

Even though she could easily lay her claim and take Dev on as a fully marked servant, she resists the urge-especially since Dev is still tormented by something in his past. But when her enemy makes an unexpected appearance, Dev surprises them both by yielding completely to his feelings for Danny and showing her the devotion of a true servant-until she decides to take his freedom without asking...

Rillian Mascini is one of the most knowledgeable mages in the world. Spending his days and sometimes nights with his nose in a book has taught him magic and histories that few care to remember. He has a passion for dragons that pulls him to learn all he can about them, including their language. He is one of the last people left alive who can speak to the magnificent beasts.

Conwyn D'Aver is squad leader of the Dragon Riders. He will do whatever it takes to protect the dragons and people he has given his oath to serve. Nothing is more important, and when Neela, his personal dragon, is attacked, Conwyn is out for blood. He vows to find the threat and defeat it. 

When an old spell book is found that gives a person the power to control all dragons, Conwyn will do anything he can to keep it from getting into the wrong hands, even if that means teaming up with the bookish Rillian to find a way to overcome the evil enemies who seek to gain the power.

Together with the dragons, the two men must find a way to protect everything they both love, but while doing so, they risk losing their own hearts to each other. As their enemies seek to destroy them, they learn that sometimes it takes love and trust to defeat the things we fear the most.

All it takes is one wrong choice to change the course of your life forever. It was all planned out; I was going to be someone special. That was me in a nutshell. But, when everything has been in your grasp, how do you live when it all slips away? 

My life has been a series of bad memories, bad moves, wrong turns and pain. Lots of pain. Then I met him. I thought that pain would be a thing of the past; I guess not. I thought I was living, but I soon found out I was simply surviving until I met him. 

After years of watching from afar, I realized that there is so much more to him. Wyatt Crown is beautiful to watch, lovely to imagine and a dream come true in the flesh. Every woman knows that. Did they know there are darker, more devilish pieces to his soul? 

There’s things he can’t show the outside world that is not part of decent society, but, it’s a need he can’t deny.


I’m wealthy beyond what I’ll be able to spend, I have a family that cares, I have everything I could ever ask for -- yet, I’m alone. There’s a hole in me that can’t be filled. There’s a darkness that can only be fed by depravity. Disguised as loved, it’s my bedfellow of choice. 

I’m from a family of daredevils. We call ourselves race junkies. I need the roar of the crowd, the rush of pushing limits and most of all -- success. My father is, my sister is and my brother too. We race to win. Nothing less is accepted. If I can’t win, there’s no living with me. 

This isn’t your sweet, he said/she said, they found true love. This is dirty, dark, twisted and full of partial hope. Don’t expect a happy ending, but if you get it; you can thank me later.

Genre: Romance / Fantasy / Gay / 

Notes: Love this cover.


Black clouds of xenophobia gather over Radvadur, the western province of the Empire. The political climate is strained and fragile. A surge of Nymph refugees has stirred widespread hostility towards non-humans. When the investigation of a gruesome triple murder linked to the refugee camp ensues, it takes Inspector Käyru Skaer and his lover, Count Ellydhar Finn-Jánn, along an unusual path, at the end of which a precious gift awaits.

Käyru and Elly are worlds apart in social standing, but they have found common ground in the bedroom—up against the wall and the stable doors, too. The arrangement between them ought to have been temporary and of no consequence. As their circumstances change, will they find the courage to risk their hearts?
