Author Bio

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under. 

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance. 

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. 

Humorous romance novels. 

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. 

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. 

With words. 

With writing. 

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.

Covert op partners Astrid Scarre and Kane Langford click on a level that defies logic. Astrid wants to say yes to the sexy Kane. But the guy who stole her heart and then shattered her soul twelve years ago shows up. Seeing the Dragon magus, Zannis, again ignites a wild physical attraction, but doesn’t eliminate her simmering hatred. Astrid is torn between her physical need for Zannis and her emotional connection to Kane.

Kane will never turn his back on Astrid, even when she gets inducted into the Scimitar magi, an organization he knows well and respects. His gorgeous ex-spy partner might push him away at every turn, but that’s too bad. He’s exactly the man she needs to protect her life and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this right, you don’t let it go.

THE RHYTHM OF MY HEART

(MATTERS OF THE HEART #1) 

SYNOPSIS:

** This book is recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual content.**

Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what's most important: her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.

Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants someone to share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone who will love him for him and not his or his family's status.

"Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it's because of you—because you're near me, because of your smile—because you take my breath away."

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly made.

But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline, or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?

FIRST DEBT by PEPPER WINTERS - INDEBTED # 2 - DARK ROMANCE - BLOG TOUR - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY






By: Pepper Winters
Published By: Pepper Winters
Released : Available Now
Details: Digital copy for honest review, 320 pages

RATING: 5 TWISTED MIND GAMES STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.

She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.

Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.

Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Why hadn’t I seen it sooner? Why hadn’t I seen past what he projected and looked deeper into his golden eyes?He was so tangled up in what he thought he was, he had no clue what he might be.

The Indebted serial is a full length set of books which will eventually reveal all of the dark and twisted tale and we will get the full picture of what Miss Pepper has wanted us to see. With each release we will discover more and more about what is going on with the characters who we can’t seem to look away from.

What I liked about this instalment is Pepper really gave us a healthy dose of understanding. What I mean is, we have been given enough of certain characters to be satisfied and urgently wanting more in this twisted tale of complicated characters.

Nila has Jethro Hawk really in a twist. He is a complicated character to understand. He is dangerous, he is on a mission to see the debt through, but he is getting all twisted up in Nila.

Jethro muttered, “Smugness is not becoming on you, Ms. Weaver.”

I shot back, “No, but vulnerability is such a fetching result on you, Mr. Hawk.”


Nila is proving to be a worthy opponent in this game that is being played out. She takes what is dished out to her but she doesn’t give in.

She won’t.

If I was to be truly honest, I am still having a little trouble with the actual debt and the reasoning, which we find out more about, and how it has stood for 600 years, but, eh, it is fiction.

The characters involved in this debt are starting to really take control of my mind and my addiction to this serial is rather consuming.

I am quite bamboozled at this stage how I am going to feel about Jethro by the end. This guy played out the First Debt and he did it with fierceness, but then he went and played with my mind... again.

I think Nila is about the straightest shooter in this series so far.

Kes is playing with my mind. Good cop, bad cop...??? He is kinda blase’ or acclimatized to how things happen in his world.

The moment I entered, Kes’s golden eyes lit up. He bounced from his chair and came to offer his hand, tugging me closer to the bikers. “Nila. What a pleasant surprise.”

... " Ouch. I’d heard he hadn’t held back." 


Kes, you really are somebody I am watching. * raises one eyebrow* I don't like raising one eyebrow it gives me a wrinkle.


Kes cupped my cheek. “ Nila...talk to me. You okay? He didn’t hurt you again, did he? I know the First Debt needed to be paid, so I can’t get angry about that payment, but anything else outside what is owed is completely uncalled for.”


Kes, you are a mind f*&^ck for me.

I paid careful attention to things in Debt Inheritance and I was correct with what I discovered in First Debt about something. Keep your eyes peeled because Pepper is dropping these little tiny seeds and if you aren’t paying attention you will miss them. I listen when Jethro is talking, I listen carefully to all the characters. In a way Miss Pepper is playing a game with us readers too.

I listened to something regarding one character that has left me quite intrigued.

Nothing Pepper will do will be straight forward, there will always be a twist. It’s what she does. There are still a handful of debts to play out. 

One can only imagine, after the first debt being the easiest.

Whahhhh!

Well done Miss Pepper, yet again.

Touche’!

Title: Tatted Cowboy
Series: Down Under Cowboy #4
Author: Kasey Millstead
 Release Date: November 17, 2014 


Synopsis


One moment was all it took for my entire life to shatter.

One moment.

I had everything . . . and then, I had nothing.

When all you’re left with are the pieces of your broken heart, there’s nothing you can do, except try to rebuild. So, that’s what I did.

One moment was all it took for me to feel the first flutter of hope I’d had in a long time.

One moment.

He barrelled into my life, covered in tattoos and surrounded by an aura that enraptured me, determined to be the glue that held every broken piece of me together.

I wanted to push him away, because I was scared to lose anyone else I loved.

But, I wanted to hold him close because without him, my life was empty.

Excerpt

With pain, comes blame. We blame the ones we love, we blame the one we lost, but most of all, we blame ourselves. It buries itself deep. So deep that on some days it feels like it’s in the marrow of your bones.

It destroys everything. The love you thought you had? Blame will chew it up and spit it out faster than you can blink.

Blame is like cancer; it eats away at all the good. It consumes you and if you are not careful, it will kill you.
