Rycks by Marteeka Karland blitz with Xpresso Book Tours

Marteeka Karland
(Black Reign MC, #1)
Publication date: June 11th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Lyric: I’m in so much trouble. My orders are to find the highest ranking member of Salvation’s Bane or Black Reign MCs and sleep with them. Worm my way into their bed for longer than one night so I can take back information to Kiss of Death. Little did I know I’d find the one man I could never forget. The man who broke my heart six years ago and left me to fend for myself against a ruthless club who would break me the first chance they got.

Rycks: The second I saw here I wanted to punish her. Lyric ran out on me six years ago. Not that I’d given her any reason to stay. Now, she waltzes back into my life with an agenda I can’t figure out. When I do, I can’t decide what to do. The truth is as scary as it is infuriating. Lyric is my torment. She’s sent to me as bait in a bigger plan I can’t fathom. Mainly because I’m too distracted by what she reveals. Now I’m questioning my loyalties to both her and my mentor, El Diablo. She pulls at my need to protect at the same time she might just prove herself to be a traitor.

WARNING: Contains scene of violence, explicit language, and adult situations. Rycks is the first book in the Black Reign series. While you can read it as a stand alone book, you may better understand the characters and situations if you read books in the Bones MC and Salvation’s Bane MC series.

“Look. I can’t stay here past tonight. But if I go back with something that looks important, you could control the information I’m giving them.” Was it my imagination or did he look disappointed?

“I don’t like it. I’d have to discuss it with Thorn, and he’d have to decide what you tell them, but it’s not something I want to risk.”

“It’s the only option I have.”


“I’m sorry?”

“Why do you have to go back, Lyric. You’re here with me now. You’re safe.”

“All you need to know is that I have to go back. I want to go back.” If the look on his face was any indication, I’d just thoroughly pissed Rycks off.

“You’re staying. End of discussion. You want to go back, you tell me why.”

“It’s personal. That’s all I’m saying so don’t ask again.”

Rycks sighed and reached for me to pull me onto his lap, straddling his hips. He stood up and turned to sit in the same chair he’d plucked me out of. Those strong hands held me still. Like I’d dare move.

“Are you telling me you want to go back to that lot? They’ll use you until there’s nothing left. I’m surprised they haven’t already. You’ll die in that place if you go back. You have to know that.”

“No. I don’t know that. Dangling information from someone high in rank at Black Reign would keep them off of me. Plus, they need me working at my job in the city. It’s the only way they’re able to get their information.”

I tried to ignore how good it felt to be in his arms again. Rycks was my first lover. He’d made me feel special despite his refusal to keep me. Even that had been because he’d thought any danger I faced wasn’t anything like what I’d face with him. I had no idea if he’d been right, but I knew where I was now was as deadly dangerous.

“You’re a damned fool,” he snapped. Then he did something unexpected. He slid his hand into the hair at the back of my head and pulled me to him. “Girl, I’m surprised they let you leave at all. Surprised they haven’t already made you a whore in the most violent way possible. It would be Rat Man who’d start with you. You know that, right?”

I shivered. Rat Man. Even saying his name gave me the creeps. The man knew no depravity he didn’t indulge in. If there was a repugnant sex act out there, chances are he’d done it.

“Yes. I can see you do know. I can also see you’re afraid.” He sighed, loosening his grip on my hair, but not letting me pull away from him. “I suppose that’s something.” With a sigh, he pulled me to him until my head rested on his shoulder. “You’re going to be a problem, I can see. Not sure the word brat even covers you.”

“Why would you call me a brat?” Maybe I was, but it was only because, for some reason, I felt safe to let that side of myself out when I was with him. Sure, he tried to come across gruff and dangerous – -and I was sure he was under the right circumstances — but I knew in my heart he wasn’t like anyone at Kiss of Death. He was a protector first. A killer only when someone he was responsible for was threatened.

“Because you’re testing me when you should be following orders.”

“Never been much good at following orders.”

“I can see that. Also,” he said, taking a deep breath, “you’ve got to tell me why your family went missing from Ismay. And why you’re the only one of them ever to turn back up.”

Cover Reveal - Vic Vaughn is Vicious by J.A. Huss.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious
J.A. Huss
Publication date: August 31st 2021
Genres: Romantic Comedy

My name is Vicious. God-given name, I cross my heart.

And it fits.

I’m a hot-as-f, inked-up tattoo artist at the trendiest shop in the Rocky Mountains.

I have the looks, I have the bike, I have the reputation.

That means I get the ladies.

Sure. There are lots of women out there who hate tattoos. Wouldn’t be caught dead with guys like me. And that’s fine. I’m not looking for girls like that.

I’m looking for that other kind of girl.

The wild one, the bad one, the crazy one.

Funny thing is… the one I fell for isn’t that girl.

She’s the Good Girl.

And maybe back when she was nineteen I came off as a ‘maybe’, but after seven years of distance I am now the definition of ‘not a keeper’.

But I can be a keeper.

I can make the good girl swoon.

I can be the dream guy she never saw coming.

If she would just… not press charges… I’m pretty sure I can turn this whole relationship around.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious is a bad-boy-trying-his best-to-win-her-back romantic comedy about a misunderstood tattoo-artist-biker called Vicious and a good girl named Daisy who ghosted him seven years ago after she came to her senses. It’s filled with funny twists, dreams of grandeur, and all seven members of the most inappropriate family in all of Colorado.

Review: Unforgivable - Mia Jones ( Broken Roses Series)


Review: Unforgivable - Book #4 Broken Roses Novellas Series - Mia Jones - April 2021

After reading the first two in this series and enjoying them, even though they are each written by different authors. I decided to continue with the series and read Unforgivable by Mia Jones. This one I could relate to a bit as we meet our main female character Shay who has moved back to a small town which she never thought she would ever set foot again. She is only here as her mother is dying and doesn't have long left. Shay soon realizes that her mother leaves her what she can after her sister and Dad ripped and cleared her mother's savings out. Shay's sister Brooke reminded me of my own and when my Dad dies, I can only imagine the situation will be similar. Being back home also brought up some nasty memories for Shay as when she was in high school she was bullied and one of the worst bullies was Jayden.  Shay is about to get the surprise of her life though when she learns that Jayden was covering up his feelings by bullying her and in fact, he may very well be her soulmate. Unforgivable was a sweet yet edgy and quick read. I am now looking forward to reading the rest of the Broken Roses Novellas Series which has one main thread of Second Chances when it looks like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Review: Have You Seen Me ? - Alexandrea Weis

Have You Seen Me?

Review: Have You Seen Me ? - Alexandrea Weis - August 2021

After enjoying Death by the River which Alexandrea co-wrote, when I was asked about this book - I said YES. This book grabbed me for several reasons from the fact it is a YA thriller set in a boarding school environment and also the book has missing persons related to it. Set in an elite boarding school where the wealthy attend amongst the odd scholarship student, over the years students have vanished and are never to be seen again. When teacher Aubrey LaRoux was at Waverley Prep, a girl who bullied her Marjorie disappeared and was never seen again. This was ten years ago. Now ten years later Aubrey has come to teach History and to her surprise, another girl has gone missing - Lindsey who turns out to be Marjorie's sister. Lindsey and her friends were investigating Marjorie's disappearance and the previous three that went missing in the '90s and discovered the identity of the killer. Now the killer is cleaning house and everyone who knows her secret is in trouble. Can Aubrey help solve the crime before any more of her close students are discovered dead? Have you Seen Me? by Alexandrea Weis reminded me of the late '90s / early 2000's slasher films like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer.

PRE-ORDER BLITZ - Lessons in Sin by Pam Godwin

Title: Lessons in Sin
A Midnight Dynasty World Novel
Author: Pam Godwin
Publisher: Dangerous Press
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: June 29, 2021


There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done.
But I found a way to control my impulses.
I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student.

Until Tinsley Constantine.

The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her.

One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life.

As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.




"Pam Godwin has penned a sinfully beautiful masterpiece in Lessons in Sin. An absolute must-read for lovers of dark and dangerous romance!" - Trisha Wolfe, author of Born, Darkly

"LESSONS IN SIN is problematic, inappropriate, and blasphemously delicious. Pam Godwin writes unapologetically and from a place of primal desire. Enter all sinners." - CJ Roberts, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Captive in the Dark

"Forbidden desire sparked into a blazing inferno in Lessons in Sin. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." - Aleatha Romig, New York Times bestselling author


New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
