Blurb: Stylist Elle Olsen lives in fear of someone discovering her secret identity as Princess Eloise. But the men who killed her entire family in a bloody coup have done just that and now they’re coming for her. All Elle wants is to disappear into anonymity again, but the panty-melting billionaire who kidnaps her isn’t about to let that happen.



On the society pages, smoking hot financier Dominick Rasmussen is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. As a secret resistance fighter, his one goal is to get Princess Eloise on the throne and restore the monarchy. The biggest problem? His stubborn and sexy undercover princess has no interest in ever wearing a tiara again.



Their goals couldn’t be more opposed, but neither Dom nor Elle can deny the attraction bringing them closer together. As the stakes rise and danger increases, they are forced to choose between love and country…

Excerpt

:
“Dom—”



The rest of the sentence was smothered by the white cotton cloth he held in his free hand and forced against her nose and mouth. Shock froze Elle to the spot. She couldn’t blink. She couldn’t breathe. All she could do was feel the banging of her heart as panic sent it into overdrive. The people who killed her family had found her.

“This is for your own good,” he said as he looked down at her. “I couldn’t take the chance you’d fight me, and there isn’t time to explain.”

Too damn bad for him, because her fight-or-flight response zinged into action. Whatever was in the cloth, she didn’t want to breathe it in. Adrenaline clawed at her, demanding life-giving oxygen, but she refused to give in. They might have murdered everyone she loved and sent her into hiding, but she wouldn’t go down without a fight. She grabbed his arms, yanking and stabbing her nails into the sliver of his wrists not covered by his shirt. He didn’t flinch.

Dom kept his cold gaze on her, a icy determination making them even bluer somehow. “Just relax and breathe.”

Fat fucking chance. Holding on to his forearms for leverage, she slammed her knee upward, aiming for his most vulnerable spot. He deflected the move with an ease of a natural athlete or a man trained to do whatever it took to force the world to do his bidding.

She fought against him, kicking and hitting, but he kept the cloth pressed against her nose and mouth. Her lungs burned with the effort not to breathe as she struggled in his iron grasp, but it didn’t do her any good. Blackness ate around the edges of her vision, the lack of oxygen taking its toll. She didn’t have long before she’d pass out, with or without the help of whatever chemical was in the cloth.

Ten years. She’d made it a decade without anyone finding her, without her secret coming out. Foolishly, she’d thought she was finally safe. Now she’d pay the price for a crown she’d never worn and a kingdom she’d never ruled. Dom pulled her close to his hard chest so she wouldn’t fall to the cold marble floor, holding her tight but without cruelty. No doubt that would come later.

“Everything is going to be okay, Princess Eloise,” he whispered against her ear. “I promise.”

But it wouldn’t. She knew better than to ever trust a man who promised happy endings in the middle of a kidnapping.

Review: I thought this story was very interesting take on a royal romance. Both lead characters were strong willed and Eloise was no typical damsel in distress. The only thing I thought was a little strange is how quickly they wanted to shag, but hey if the sparks are flying I say inginite that fire. Overall it was a good romantic read with a very interesting twist.

Unleash the Storm Blog Tour Stop + Review + Giveaway



Visit the World of the Steel & Stone Series by Annette Marie in the Highly Anticipated Finale, UNLEASH THE STORM



Piper started out as a magic-less apprentice only to become the wielder of the most powerful weapon in existence, but the cost of that power has been blood and pain.  As she and Ash retreat into the Underworld to escape the coming daemon war, he’s all she has left – but if she can’t find her strength, she’ll soon lose him to dangers in his world that even he can’t fight. Read the exhilarating conclusion to the Amazon best-selling YA urban fantasy series in UNLEASH THE STORM by Annette Marie…



People are raving about the Steel & Stone series!



I could not put it down! It had everything I want to read in a UF – action, great characters, awesome world building, diverse species, secrets and lies, twists and turns and a smidge of romance…. Now I want more! – Book Passion For Life


Review: Unleash the Storm is the fifth book in this series and can I say what a bitter sweet ending to this story arc. First off I highly recommend you read the other books before this one or you will be lost. From Chase the Dark (book 1) to Unleash the Storm (book 5) the growth from all the main characters is amazing. I felt like everyone finally matured and most of the lose ends were tied up. I also loved the blending of the old with the new. There was so many new characters to keep us engaged but the old characters blended in nicely and I felt like everyone had know each other forever. I am not going to lie, sometimes, I felt like there were no breaks for Piper and Ash, also, I won't even discuss the ending.  This book was great though, there was romance, battles, finding oneself, mysterious pasts come to light, and sacrifices. I highly recommend this series, it was engaging and entertaining and I am sad that I wont get to ship Piper/Ash anymore.

Review of Dove Antiperspirant

I recently received Dove Men and Women's antiperspirant in conjunction with Influencer to review. I though with V-Day around the corner what could be a better gift then not smelling like B.O. The man in my life and myself recently wore the spray out to go to dinner. I didn't smell or have those white deodorant marks on my dress. All he said was "yeah it works." Guy huh! Right now target is carrying both of the products below, so if you want to get your own head to your nearest one.

Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs Book Review

Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.

Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?

Review: I have read this series since it first came out and have reviewed some of the predecessors on here. First off can I say just how BA this cover looks. I felt this book had a different tone though. In the last book there was some much craziness and excitement that it just made this one feel a little flat. Mercy seems to realize in this book that she is not immortal and is playing the game a little safer. There is however lots of action with new an old faces alike. Also, the end kind of bummed me out because I like *spoiler* a certain fey item . To be frank I thought the story added to the series but was not my favorite in the series. I think it showed how far Mercy has come from removing parts from the rabbit in Adam's yard, and I think that was the point of this book.

House of royals book review

Description: Every town has its history and skeletons, but Silent Bend, Mississippi’s are darker than most. Ruled from the shadows by the House—the immortal Born and their aging, enslaved Bitten—everyone knows not to go out after dark and that the police will never look into crimes involving blood.

Alivia Ryan didn’t know the man who claims to be her father through a will even existed until she inherits the Conrath plantation. Instead of the sleepy house she expects, she finds a mansion and a staff who look at her with fear in their eyes.

Ian Ward tried to kill Alivia the first time they met, and then insisted he train her to defend herself against the House, who he claims will try to manipulate and take her in for their own political reasons. And the growing attraction between them will threaten their lives—Ian is a sworn enemy of the House.

In Silent Bend, people disappear, the threat of a demented King and the legend of his resurrecting Queen hang over everyone’s heads, and proving loyalty means far more than blood. You’d better watch who you trust in this town…

Review: I was scared to read this because the description made it sound very similar to some other YA books I have read. This book was not like what I thought it would be, instead this book was engaging, exciting, and contained main characters that used cunning and creativity to make it through some politics and other subterfuge plots. My favorite part is that Alivia does not care what other people think, she does what she wants, but for all the right reasons. I even felt engaged with all the secondary characters. The only thing I disliked was how long some of the information was beat around the bush. It was a good read though and after the ending I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Review of Chomp Snack Sticks+ giveaway


Still looking for holiday gift ideas, well check out these Chomp Snack Sticks.
Description: Chomps Snack Sticks are an awesome new health product made with 100% Non-GMO Grass-Fed Angus Beef which is sourced from New Zealand. The sticks contain no artificial ingredients (no nitrites, nitrates, MSG, colors, flavors) and are shelf stable for a year with the help of celery juice!

I had the opportunity to try out three of the flavors offered, Crankin' Cran, Hoppin' Jalapeno, and Original. I really liked the crackin' cran and original. The Hoppin' Jalapeno didn't taste bad but it was to hot for me to handle. I was skeptical when I read it had celery juice in it, but it really tastes like other jerky's you just feel better when you eat it. The packaging also super easy to throw in my purse or gym bag for a to go snack. Interested in getting some here's the link.
