The Officer's Wife (Because You Love Me Book 1) by Adrienne Ruvalcaba



This IR contemporary romance is high on my TBR list. I'm a military spouse myself so I enjoy reading about the romance side of military men. You can give this one a try for only 99 cents which is definitely a bargain for a full length story!

Happy Reading!
Monica (Monlat)

Synopsis:

Rebecca Graves tries to make sense of her harsh work environment and embrace the role of counselor to some of the most troubled teenage girls in the country. Rebecca isn’t the type of person who can settle into position as a mediocre cog in a machine. She knows she can do more with her life, and she sets out to prove it. During this journey of self-discovery she learns a great deal, including the dark secret that has shadowed her relationship with her mother for most of her life. She refuses to let this powerful secret shatter her world, but can she handle all of the challenges that soon come her way? 

Norman Gregory’s beautiful but vicious ex-wife almost shattered his faith in women. He spends his days serving as a Major in the Army and his nights as a lonely single parent, until he comes across Rebecca. On one of his isolated early morning runs, their paths cross and their destinies entwine in a story of love, friendship, courage, strength, and forgiveness.

Excerpt

"I know Selina can be stubborn," Chris said after moments of silence while the men drank. "But is she refusing to take the bracelet back?"
"No. She wants it. But I can't give it back to her until she knows everything about my past. I can't trust that she won't throw it at me when she finds out what my life was really like." Ben sighed, giving in briefly to the fear of what it would do to his heart if she spurned him again.
"I don't blame you," Kenny said, sympathy lacing his words.
"Shit," Chris muttered under his breath.
His friends understood his predicament. They were dominant men. Although Chris wasn't in a committed relationship, he had dated Selina before Benjamin met her. Kenny on the other hand had been married once. Still, they both understood his need for Selina, his overwhelming desire to have her submission.
She was a beam of light shining on the darkness that had lived in his soul since he was a teenager. He loved her. Wanted to possess her like no one ever did.
As a man who made a living from protecting others, no one drew out his protective instincts like Selina did. And he would make sure she was protected no matter the cost to him. If it meant taking down Tony Kana, he would do it in a heartbeat.
"I want to know everything Tony Kana does from now on. If he as much as sneezes, I want to hear about it." Ben tossed the rest of his drink down his throat as the need to be with his wife overwhelmed him. He stood and headed toward the door.
"You've got it." Kenny nodded as he stood too.
"Thank you," Ben said before punching the button to call the elevator.  Chris stepped inside with him when the door opened.
"Why are you so bent on tracking this guy?" his best friend asked. "Is there something I should know?"
Ben had asked Kenny, who had contacts in West Africa, to help him find Tony Kana but he'd never really explained to his friends why.
"Kana is Selina's ex-husband," he said in a matter of fact tone.
"And?" His friend understood him too well.
"He's the reason she has body issues."
"Body issues?" Chris's face puckered in a frown.
"When you dated her, did you ever get to see her full unclothed?"
His friend's dark brows drew together. "No. She always insisted on having those corsets on. They were damn sexy so I never minded. Although once I walked into the bathroom while she was in the shower and she nearly screamed the place down because she wanted me to get out."
Benjamin closed his eyes and sucked in a breath to stave off his rising anger. "Her abdomen is covered in scars. Someone cut her up pretty badly."
"Kana?" Chris growled the question.
"No." Ben opened his eyes and stared at his friend. He could see his anger reflected in his friend's eyes. "But he might as well have wielded the knife himself. He handed Selina over to the militia who wanted to use her as a sex slave. She fought back and they mutilated her for disobedience."
"And all you want to do is watch this guy? I want to put a bullet right between his eyes."
"Selina doesn't want any more bloodshed. I have to respect her wishes. Doesn't mean I can't take the guy down another way."
"Right." Chris nodded. "He has to pay."
"Oh, he's going to pay. No doubt about that."
They entered the bar and loud music erased the need for further conversation.

Wolfsgate by Cat Porter


Title: Wolfsgate
Author: Cat Porter
Date of Publication: November 20th 2014


About Wolfsgate

My resurrection, they call it.

They have no bloody idea.

Shipwrecked and lost, left for dead,
Abandoned by my own family.
Drugged and addicted.

My wife saved me, brought me home.
I didn’t even know I had a wife—can I trust her?
I know I want her.
Desperately.
We are two of a kind—the manipulated, the tossed off, the rejected.

Bitter disappointments, painful secrets, age-old jealousies are my new shipwreck,
and my wife my new opium.

Is satisfaction to be found in revenge or revenge in satisfaction?
One thing I do know, without each other we’re both doomed.
  

Wolfsgate

A sensual 18th century tale of deception, revenge, and the hunger for love and absolution.

When things take a turn for the worst, it leaves her questioning just how equipped she is for the hell she lives. She thought her marriage with Locks was it; that she had it all. But the past has a way of sneaking up and tearing life apart. Finding herself trapped as Locks’ ol’ lady, with the threat she will be his till the grave, her world spirals out of control. The only person risking it all to save her is the last person she thought would care: Bull.

President of the Devil’s Dust MC, Bull, is good at running women off and is even better at pissing off his brothers. When he sees the way his vice-president is treating his ol’ lady, he tries to keep his thoughts to himself. The one thing Bull insists on in his club is respect and loyalty: respect for the patch, respect for your brother, and loyalty to the club. However, after finding Babs in a harsh predicament after a run in with Locks, he can’t help but step in. Crossing lines and hurdling around life’s unpredictability, will they find refuge in each other or will they have to endure what life gives them?

Exchange of Fire by P.A. DePaul

9780698180949-ExchangeofFi_CV

Today we're having a book blast for Exchange of Fire by P.A. DePaul. I'm super excited about this blast. We'll be revealing a deleted scene from Exchange of Fire and it's on sale right now as well!! Enjoy and make sure you enter P.A.'s giveaway!!

 

Introduction from the author: 

Exchange of Fire’s gone through quite a few changes since I typed the first draft. Some of them major. This scene was one of the first ones to be changed. As I wrote it, the storyline started shifting to be more about Cappy and his wound then about an assassin coming after Wraith by invading Grady’s home. Not good and too much time was being wasted trying to bring it back on track. As I brainstormed, I realized this scene could be so much more suspenseful and really dive into both Grady and Wraith’s personal storylines if I didn’t include Cappy and shifted Mars outside, trying to pick them off. Ultimately, this one scene developed into multiple chapters of high action and personal suspense (Chapters 39-41 to be exact). Hope you enjoy a peek at an earlier version!     


  About Exchange of Fire: 

  Faking her death was easy, living with her past is harder, but nothing is more dangerous than falling in love… Sandra Walsh was a deadly sniper for the Sweet Briar Group, a covert agency with assassins for hire, until her last mission went horribly wrong, accidentally killing an innocent girl. Knowing she’s a danger to her team, Sandra goes off the grid, becoming a Shade—an agent declared dead but secretly hiding among the living. She intends to honor her vow never to pull another trigger or have contact with the spy world again. Until she meets Casper Grady… Grady is a former Marine with a troubled past and a debt to pay. His life mission has gone from protecting the nation to helping local children and their families. The moment he meets Sandra, he knows there’s more to her than meets the eye, but he can’t help but be drawn to the mysterious femme fatale. And when Sandra’s past suddenly catches up to her, Grady is determined to protect her at all costs, no matter how dark and dangerous her secrets are. As the danger increases, so does their intense attraction. But when they’re forced to choose between each other and the people they’ve sworn to protect, their growing love might not be enough to keep them together—or alive…
