Tall, Dark and Alpha is a collection that has a little something for everyone. This set includes a total of ten  Contemporary, Sports Contemporary, Paranormal and Sci-Fi reads, so it will appeal to a vast audience of readers. The stories are woven together with the prevalent Alpha male theme and if you love a good Alpha, you will love this collection.

I hate to play favorites, but well, I just can't help myself. My favorite book within this set was  Sex with an Ex by Eve Vaughn. Ethan is what every Alpha male should be :) This was my first read by all the authors within this set, and there are several that I am already looking for what else they have published.  Even if some of the genres within this set aren't a part of your normal comfort zone, take a chance on reading something new!  For the ROCK BOTTOM price of .99- this is a great roll of the dice :)

Review & Giveaway: Three Weeks with Lady X
by Eloisa James

The next fabulous romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James. Having made a fortune, Thorn Dautry, the powerful bastard son of a duke, decides that he needs a wife. But to marry a lady, Thorn must acquire a gleaming, civilized facade, the specialty of Lady Xenobia India. Exquisite, headstrong, and independent, India vows to make Thorn marriageable in just three weeks. But neither Thorn no India anticipate the forbidden passion that explodes between them. Thorn will stop at nothing to make India his. Failure is not an option. But there is only one thing that will make India his... the one thing Thorn can't afford to lose... his fierce and lawless heart.

As a fan of Eloisa James I am about to make a really BIG statement. Three Weeks with Lady X is the best of her books I've read to date.  Thorn Dautry is the bastard son of the ny well loved character the Duke of Villiers (A Duke of her Own). After building his fortune, he wants one thing, a family, and not just any family, he must marry a lady. He wants to do everything he can to insure his future children have every advantage. Thorn has his eyes set on a certain lady, but in order to marry her he needs a respectable property. Lady X is in high demand because her ability of  organizing a household is second to none. Her skills have allowed her to build her own fortune and have forced her to turn down more proposals than she can count. Lady X knows she must enter the marriage mart soon, so reluctantly (at first) takes on this last project to make Thorn and his property respectable. What neither of them expected was the fire that ignited between them!

I had trouble putting this book down once I started reading, the story is full of vivid details, lots of back story, an insane amount of passion and it kept me turning pages late into the night to see what was coming next. This book is unpredictable in the most delicious way!  I gave Three Weeks with Lady X,  5 STARS and can honestly say as I stated earlier, this is my FAVORITE Eloisa James book to date. This is a must read for not only fans of Eloisa James, but ALL fans of this genre.

Last Second Chance by Caisey Quinn

Caisey Quinn has a new series starting!!!




He flashed her a sexy grin and stepped right back into her space. “I don’t want some chick. And you’re not that good at hiding your emotions, beautiful. You snapped on those nurses at lunch and ran out of my room so fast I barely had time to blink. Any particular reason why?” He trailed a finger down her cheek and over her lips. Instead of an answer, a whimper escaped her throat. A painful throbbing began between her thighs, intense and demanding.
His touch deepened the pain. Her policy was no dating people in her workplace. She certainly wasn’t going to date Van Ransom. He’d probably never taken a girl on a proper date in his life. But right now she didn’t care about any of that. She just wanted him to take her up against the back of the barn, hard and fast. She was a country girl at heart after all.
“Stella Jo, you going to answer? Or do I have torture it out of you?”
The way he said her name, the one she was used to hearing drop only from the lips of family members, made her shiver. She let her head loll back to rest on the wall behind her. “Do your worst. I’ve dealt with animals much bigger than you.”
Leaning in until his nose brushed hers, he let out a soft growl. “You sure as hell better be talking about horses, because if you’re talking about Dr. Dickhead or any other man who's put his hands on you in a way you didn’t want, they’re fucking dead.”
She grinned and winked at him. “Guess that’s for me to know, darlin’.” Her breath was still coming too fast, but she was gaining confidence. She was having as much of an effect on him as he was on her. A competitive streak she thought she’d buried rose to the surface. “Speaking of men putting their hands on me, if this is your brand of torture, I’m disappointed.”
Thrusting himself up against her, he growled again. “Baby, my brand of torture involves that riding crop you bent over to pick up. Matter of fact, it involves you being bent over also.”
An audible gasp of surprise escaped her. His threat pulled at something deep inside of her that she didn’t know was there. Something dark and terrifying that she knew she should feel dirty and ashamed of. But she didn’t. Because apparently he wasn’t the only one who was twisted like that.
“Surprised?” he asked with a knowing look in his eyes.
“That you know what a riding crop is? Yeah.” She forced herself to smirk at him so he wouldn't see that she was a trembling mess of desire.
