 13 sentences from the novel
1. Never in her wildest imagination would she have believed that she would be ill fated enough to be forced into this marriage - this unholy alliance with her brother's murderer.
2. However, when her sword struck his shield with the force of a great man, he quickly changed his mind.
3. Ethan would never forgive himself if anything happened to Daniel.
4. He stared at this beautiful little creature standing before him possessing more courage than he had ever seen in any knight on the battlefield.
5. "I've always known that my life would be mercifully short..." he paused and cleared his throat, "…and untouched by love.
6. . "Jules, your brother is dead and his murderer stands before you now!"
7. He grabbed the shivering girl in a tight embrace, his hands running across her tense back, his lips pressed roughly against hers.
8. All those years ago, she had seen so much anger in him, but there was also such sweetness in his kind looks and the way he touched her - like she would break if he pressed too hard, very much the opposite of the way he touched her the day before, possessively and with little regard for her feelings.
9. She loathed this man, but she could not deny the strange stirring inside of her every time she saw him.
10. "The duke of Rocksavage," he continued.
11. "To my bride," he said, the look of a warrior who has just conquered a nation twinkling in his eyes.
12. He pulled her to him in a protective embrace, burying his head in her hair.
13. Ethan watched the water trickle down the length of the blade.

#MFRWauthor Book Spotlight: The Sun King @skylewrites by Sandra Kyle

Sandra Kyle released The Sun King, an Erotic Historical.
Young Cecilia Danet is introduced to the opulent world of royalty when she joins the court of King Louis XIV—the Sun King. Having been groomed her whole life for the role of a courtesan prepares her for everything but the intense passion she feels with the brooding and powerful Louis. Their romance builds, but an intriguing twist changes the trajectory of Cecilia’s course and leaves her caught in the middle of a royal love triangle.
REVIEW
"Sun King is a beautiful, sexy novel filled with all the pomp and circumstance of the era. The descriptions were so evocative and visual that I felt like I was right there in the French ruler’s court. Thanks to the immediacy of the storytelling, I fell in love with the Sun King right along with Cecilia.

Although the love story (or should I say stories) turned out to be somewhat unorthodox and surprising, as a reader I rooted for the heroine all the way through to the end.

I tend to be a slow reader, but I finished the book in just a few sittings. The only book I ever finished faster was The Great Gatsby. I will definitely be looking for more stories by Ms. Kyle."

EXCERPT
He moved closer. His perfection crept toward me with ease. His hands gripped my shoulders, guiding me to face the mirror once again. I met his gaze in the mirror as his reflection fell over me. His fingers traveled lightly across my bare skin. They found their way over my back and neck, into my hair. He bent down, lifting my curls to meet his nose. He deliberately inhaled my scent.

He found the last remaining hairpins at the crown of my head and released them. The locks tumbled around my face. Grabbing at the tresses, he rested them behind my shoulders. His fingers ran through them again.

“So dark and beautiful.” He spoke to no one in particular. I took the moment to spy upon him. He continued the luxurious combing, wrapping my curls around his skin. Brown tendrils of wispy hair framed his face, falling around his shoulders. The hair, so perfectly arranged at the dinner table, broke free. A few strands fell against his forehead, obscuring one of his azure eyes. A hand lifted from my lap momentarily, wanting to brush them back.
This is his time.

“You have interrupted my thoughts often since I saw you that first time. What it would feel like to touch you. How you would feel beneath me.”

A gasp left my mouth, my thoughts envisioning his words. His hands pulled my hair to the side, over my shoulder.

“Stand up, my treasure.”
I rose slowly from the chair. As I stepped to face him, his gaze wandered over my body again, looking down at me. “Do you know why you are here?”
I nodded before he demanded, “Tell me.”
I stammered. “I-I am here to please you.”
“Do you know how?” I hesitated, not quite sure what response would be appropriate. “It is all right. I will show you.” His hands found my waist before sneaking around to my back. He pulled me against him. The silk of our clothing swished together. His mouth opened. Hot breath washed over me. He licked his top lip. “Do you want me to show you?”
“Yes, Louis.”

 13 Sentences from  A Legacy of Love and Murder:
1-Thirteen years later, this fairytale fortress,although not pink, loomed larger than Cinderella’s castle.
2-When his brown eyes regarded her, August thought of warm, toasted almonds and was immediately annoyed with herself.
3-At least fifteen years August’s senior, he had a kind of James Bond quality about him, exuding a seductive confidence with his every move she couldn’t ignore, in spite of her irritation.
4-“I’m sorry.” He glanced at both of them before speaking. “Herr Luschin is dead.”
5-Mom might classify falling-apart balcony walls and cabinets as accidents, but she had an edgy sensation.
6-“If you mean I want to know more about my great-grandfather, about how he died and about you, my last living Austrian relative, then yes, I guess I am.”
7-Lenhard didn’t seem the type of man to practically lure his granddaughters to Austria only to commit suicide and use them to further torture his nephew.
8-The glint in Wolf’s eyes when August suggested he spend the night in the suite with her was…wolf-like.
9-The personal interest he had in this case charged every nerve in his body. “Lacy’s had another attempt on her life.”
10-With a blink of thick lashes, and a tug of a spiky, golden-tipped lock of hair, she continued as if nonplused by his reaction to her tease; although, her crooked smile spoke volumes.
11-12-“Thomas Siegel has seen him being friendly with some Burschenschaften members.”
“Ach, the Nazi ties again.”

13-“Someone will die, Tobias, but are you willing to play this out and see who?”

REVIEW
Mar 05, 2016 HEA Addict rated it really liked it
Shelves: erotica, paranormal
Owning the Night (Hunting the Dark Lord #4) by Ann Jacobs is a quick erotic read. Ann Jacobs is able to pack so much detail in just a few paragraphs; it took just six chapters to delve into a world of cops, hunters, and vampires.

EXCERPT
“Fuck.” The epithet slipped through Alex’s lips, a guttural cry that echoed against the heavy air that surrounded him. ""You’re certain?""

""Reynard landed right outside the gate to this deserted estate on Biscayne Bay and went inside. There’s only one way out, and I’ve been watching it. I swear he hasn’t gone anywhere unless he’s found a way to slip through stone walls. But since he’s been in Miami, three women have died. His work. I’m sure of it, though I don’t know how he gets in and out.""

Most vampires, Alex included, could move with stealth when circumstances demanded it. But Alex had been studying Louis Reynard since his pattern of serial killings began, and he’d never observed that the bastard could cloak his presence from fellow vampires—or that he could move through solid walls the way Alex and his clansmen could if they were sufficiently motivated. Still, the wily vampire had obviously managed to sneak out from under Philippe’s watchful eye. Three times so far.

It became more evident every time Alex encountered Reynard that while he might be old and battered, even for a vampire, he possessed an unequaled arsenal of powers. Alex shouldn’t have been surprised. After all, Louis had been honing his supernatural abilities for evil since centuries before Alex had been born.
 
What should I do? Philippe’s tone broadcast his frustration, a sentiment Alex echoed.

""It’s all right, my friend. I should be there very soon—assuming the winds don’t change direction."" Damn. He, Stefan and Claude shouldn’t have expected a made vampire, no matter how well Philippe was motivated, to be able to destroy Reynard or even keep him under surveillance once Reynard had sensed his presence. 
 
They themselves had failed to end the serial killer’s life, and they’d been three against one. Alex let out another oath as he broke through the clouds and zeroed in on the bright lights of Florida’s Gold Coast. 
No. Reynard still lived to wreak havoc on mortal women. And to horrify and terrify Alina, his cousin and the d’Argent clan’s beloved queen. Alex concentrated hard, cut through the damp air with a satisfying whoosh and sped toward his destination with hardened resolve. 
This time he wouldn’t fail. Louis Reynard would die. And d’Argent honor would be restored.
ABOUT Ann Jacobs
Before settling down to raise a family and write stories about to-die-for Alpha heroes and the women who tame them, Ann Jacobs spent several years on staff of a national CPA firm and a few more as financial manager of hospitals and a health maintenance organization in west-central Florida. She began writing while her children were babies, making her first sale to the Berkley Publishing Group in 1996.

Almost twenty years and more than a hundred books and novellas later, she still lives in Tampa, Florida, with her own personal hero, her youngest son, a sometimes neglected orchid collection, and four very spoiled and much-loved cats.

Ann loves hearing from readers and tries to meet as many fans as possible at one or more conferences each year. You can learn more about Ann by visiting her website at annjacobs.net.

Where does #MFRWauthor Brenda Whiteside @BrendaWhitesid2 get her Story Ideas?

MFRW Author Brenda Whiteside talks about where her story ideas come from.
Convinced she was born to be an artist, Brenda never took her love of writing seriously…until sometime after college, after marrying a man doing a stint in the army, and after the birth of her son, she found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color.

Brenda and her husband are gypsies at heart having lived in six states and two countries. Currently, they split their time between the prairie in Northern Arizona and the RV life. At home or in the RV, she spends most of her time writing stories of discovery and love entangled with suspense.

My stories are character driven. Many of the characters who populate my novels are inspired by the people who populate my life, past and present. More often than not, a trait, an event, or something as simple as a comment from someone I know will be the springboard for a story.

I’ve always loved to make up stories and write. If how I fared in school was any indication, I was meant to be a writer. But for reasons I can’t remember, I wanted to be an artist. My painting talents were decent, and I received accolades in art classes, too. As an adult, I finally came to enjoy writing more after taking a creative writing course.

I didn’t choose to write romance. Romance chose me. My goal was to write stories of human relationships. What I found was the strongest and most complicated of all is the relationship of love. Choose any genre and a story of romance can be woven into the novel.

Over the years, my stories have progressed from being closely derived from my own life to total fiction. But always there are facets of my own personality that leak into my writing. It could be as simple as a character having my love of flavored coffee to their heritage being part Native American. I always use settings where I have lived or enjoyed lengthy visits.

A Legacy of Love and Murder is set in Austria. I’ve spent time in Austria and have a very good Austrian friend who lives in the area I use in the book. This is the third book in the series and the second book to deal with searching out ancestral connections. Lacy Dahl, from book one, is traveling with her daughter, August. Inheriting an Austrian Castle is an Alpine fairytale for August, until someone begins killing the heirs.

A Legacy of Love and Murder
In Austria to meet her great-grandfather and explore his castle estate filled with priceless art, August
Myer arrives to find he’s died suspiciously. As one of the heirs, her life is in danger, turning this fairytale Alpine adventure into a nightmare of unexplained accidents, neo-Nazi threats, and murder.

Inspector Tobias Wolf splits his time between his profession and fighting the spread of neo-Nazism. But when the beautiful, intriguing American crosses his path during a murder investigation, ensuring her safety challenges his priorities…and his heart.

When August learns the handsome inspector’s involvement with a major female Nazi is more than he’s admitted, and the death of her great-grandfather is somehow connected, she takes the investigation into her own hands. The outcome could be the death of both of them.
