Smitten by Juliet Braddock - Cover Reveal



 COVER REVEAL



January Gallimore has arrived at a crossroad in life.

A short-lived scandal that had made her the darling of the BDSM community did little to damage her status as America's sweetheart. However, her career starring in romantic comedies hasn't given her any insights into figuring out her own love life. 

For five years, January shared a long-distance love affair with French rock legend, Etienne Marceaux. Their relationship is passionate but comfortable. Caught in the whirlwind between New York and Paris, they indulge in stolen moments in between their chaotic celebrity lives.

Although Etienne certainly knows how to entertain her with his Dominance, January realizes that something is missing. Now a thirty-something actress, she wonders how long her career will endure, and she questions some of the decisions she’s made.

On a spontaneous trip with her best friend to Provence, January encounters a chance meeting with a younger Englishman, Nigel Hereford-Smyth. With his naivete and somewhat awkward aristocratic ways, Nigel, nevertheless, sweeps January off her Louboutin pumps.

As they romp about the French countryside, January tutors her young suitor on the finer points of BDSM, and Nigel unwittingly leads January on a deep exploration of what really matters in her life. While she allows herself to revel in the bliss of a possible new man in her life, she also realizes that Nigel carries his own set of baggage.

Forced to leave Nigel by her filming schedule, January returns to the hustle of Hollywood, only to find her confusion mounting.

Will she choose Etienne, who makes her body sizzle…or Nigel, whose charm and manners leave her SMITTEN?

Amazon bestselling author Juliet Braddock’s first efforts in creative writing came long before she learned to put crayon to paper.  In fact, she began spinning stories in her head nearly as soon as she could form complete sentences.  As long as she can remember, she’d always created sagas about imaginary friends, family members and pop culture icons, and kept everyone around her entertained with her witty—but often very tall—tales.

For her sixth Christmas, Juliet’s mother got her a child’s typewriter to preserve all of those creative thoughts filling her head, but she quickly switched to ball point pens and notebooks when the ribbon ran dry. 

Most of Juliet’s early attempts at writing romance focused on members of Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet or young leading men on Broadway.  However, as she matured as a writer, she decided that it was just as much fun to create her own romantic heroes and heroines.

At an early age, she also developed a love for big cities, and the tallest of skyscrapers were never high enough for her.  Juliet’s wanderlust would eventually lure her to New York, a city she often visited during her formative years, and her love affair with Manhattan began.  She’d promised herself that one day she would return for good. 

Juliet’s passion for writing and for big cities converged, and after graduating with a degree in Journalism, she decided to set out on a journey to find her heart…just where she’d left it. 

A week after her college graduation, Juliet made the big move from a small town to New York City, where she has made her home ever since.

In between building a career in communications and writing on the side, she’s indulged in international travel, theater and art.  A wine and food buff, she’s by no means a connoisseur, but she can give a few good restaurant recommendations if you’re in the city. 

“There’s something so inspiring about living in a city like New York that’s so rich in culture and so very vibrant. Every neighborhood has its own story to tell,” Juliet says.  “I often do my best plotting on the subway, just observing the lives unfolding around me.  New York truly has a billion stories nestled between the skyscrapers.”

Since she initially started writing, Juliet developed a condition called Pseudotumor, and while she is legally blind, she continues to turn out her steamy, romantic stories with the help of magnifying software for the vision-impaired.

“Throughout my lifetime, I’ve been through a lot, but I never let anything stop me from doing what I love to do,” Juliet says. “Writing has been my passion since I was a child, and as long as I have stories to share with my readers, I will continue.”

A proud New Yorker, Juliet couldn’t live anywhere else—except for Paris, perhaps—and is a gushing cat-mom to a Russian Blue mix who was rescued as a kitten from the streets of Brooklyn, where they make their home.

Juliet is legally blind, and spins her sexy romances with the assistance of software for the vision-impaired.

New Release and Review - Makeshift Mate (Bad Alpha Dads, Meet Your Alpha) Alpha Singles Series

Makeshift Mate (Bad Alpha Dads, Meet Your Alpha)
Alpha Singles Series
“This single father gig isn't so hard. Not hard at all. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, really. It's been a breeze! Or so I thought.”
When Alpha Locke Winfield’s pack decided it was time for him to step up and take care of his own child for once, his whole life turned upside down. Too busy for tea parties and ballet recitals, he hadn’t realized his daughter, Sara, was no longer a little girl. And preteens, he was learning, were a whole other breed.
Locke needed a woman. One who could do more than take care of his daughter. He couldn’t remember the last time a woman had taken care of him. Which was why he joined the online dating site, Alpha Singles.
Sara needed a mother. And Locke needed a mate. ASAP.
There were thousands of women out there. Surely he could find one who was willing to take on a workaholic Alpha Wolf and his moody preteen daughter.

Review
This story is about Locke, the Alpha of a wolf pack, and Isa the human business woman


Locke is a little moody, his a busy man with a daughter and a pack to run. When the pack do an intervention on him for being a 'bad dad' his forced to do something drastic - join an online dating site.



Isa is very successful in her business and works hard, she would like some love in her life and joined the site Alpha Singles.



Locke and Isa are a match by the computer but could they be in real-life? 



I thought Locke came across a bit draconian to begin with, looking for a woman to care for his daughter, cook and clean. Isa isn't impressed by his ideas either, but when he meets Isa things change for him.



The story is an enjoyable easy read.  The characthers are engaging and the storyline keeps you turning pages. I will be adding next book onto my TBR list.


Scroll down to find details of the prequel to this series.

New Release and Review - Remi by Elaine Barris


Blurb

A Vampire’s Thirst… Dark… Dangerous and Undeniable

In the world of high stakes poker, Remi Bellerive is the undisputed champion, his name renowned in gaming circles. With his lover, Michelle, at his side, Remi is living his vampire life according to his rules with no apology. 

His nemesis, TripleAce, however, has other ideas, and plans to use his lucky charm to unseat Remi at the upcoming live poker tournament. Filled with envy and jealousy of Remi’s fame and standing, TripleAce is dead set on defeating Remi by any means necessary.

After being drawn into TripleAce’s dark world and seeing firsthand the despicable things he’s capable of, Sophie is desperate to escape. Though scared of what his henchman, Hans, will do to her if she’s caught, the terror of living and dying at his whims spurs Sophie to jump at the only chance she has of running away.

Amidst this backdrop, a rash of murders has drawn the attention of The Directive, a mysterious collective that polices all supernaturals, and holds them to account for any wrongdoing. Magno Zara has dispatched his lead investigator, Clarence Collins, and his second in command, Jana Noskova, to team up with New Orleans local, Ethan Boudreaux, to locate and bring to justice those responsible for the crimes.

A strange affliction, an overwhelming thirst has hit Remi, causing his desire for blood to increase to astounding proportions, placing the human woman he cares for in dire danger.

Is Remi to blame for the killings? Has the Thirst turned him into a vampire gone rogue? Or, has he discovered something he wasn’t looking for… his bloodmate?




My Review

Diving back into Ms Barris vampire word is always a delight and this book grabbed me early on.

Remi is a vamp and plays poker, he comes across as a little cold to begin with but I felt him warm as the story went on. Remi is in a relationship at the start of the book, to be honest I didn't feel a connection between them to begin with and then I did and then the author changed direction on me lol - I had to put my kindle down for a minute as was gutted for Michelle.

Sophie is on the run from a bad vamp and his twisted friend when she meets Michelle and everything starts changing for everyone.

This was read was full of preternatural men and women, I love my vamps but love seeing a shifter or two always adds more interest.

This is a rollercoaster of a read, the relationships, the baddies, the danger and of course Remi, the dark and brooding yet passionate and caring vamp.
