New Release From One of My Favorite Authors!

This month I wanted to share my friend and fellow Blushing author Brandi Evans' latest release. I met Brandi years ago when I was a budding author, and over this summer she was able to salvage my hot mess of website and turn it into something logical and user friendly. Which took some ninja skills. 
I ❤❤ her latest series! I admit, I don't read much BDSM but I'm able to connect with Brandi's characters. I'm a fan of her heroines because she gives them attitude, and I love a gal who speaks her mind. But Brandi makes them flawed and vulnerable in just the right way to make me root for a hero that can save them from their inner demons. I've posted the blurb below and links below. Check it out if you like steamy BDSM. 😉
I’ve spent my life depending on one person: myself. I’ve learned the hard way that other people will only let me down. I’ve worked for everything I have, but thanks to my drug-addicted mother, I’m about to lose the one thing I’ve craved for years. Needing to make some extra cash, I ask my boss at Restrained Fantasies, a Dallas BDSM club, for some extra shifts. Much to my chagrin, Master Carter Burkes is with him, and he leaps to my rescue, bound and determined to save me  only I’m not the kind of girl who needs to be saved. 
I can’t sit by while Raven, a recurring figure in my fantasies, is in trouble. My job as a detective keeps me busy, but I’m not looking for a relationship, just a sub to assist with a class I’m teaching: Reading Your Submissive. Raven always claimed she wasn’t a member of the lifestyle, so imagine my surprise when I discover a budding submissive inside her. She gets under my skin in ways I can’t fight, but emotions are dangerous. I learned that the hard way. Is getting close to her a mistake? Will I destroy her life like I destroyed the life of the only woman I’ve ever loved? 

This is book two in the Restrained Fantasies series but can be read as a standalone. 

Publisher’s Note: This romance contains elements of danger, suspense, mystery, power exchange, sensual scenes and adult language. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

Author Bio
Brandi Evans was raised by a caravan of traveling Gypsies. She spent her days learning the ways of her people and her nights lost in legends as old as time. Okay, not really, but that's way more interesting than the truth!

In reality, Brandi grew up the oldest child of an ordinary family. Grade school, middle school, high school. Nothing extraordinary happened until she left the nest. She joined the military, went to college, got married, and became a mom. And somewhere along the way, she discovered she liked to read--and write!--stories hot enough to melt eReaders.

Bearing It All is almost Here!

Good afternoon everyone! I'm a bit late, sorry! I have been burning the midnight candle at both ends and to be honest, not sleeping. Which is totally not good for me.

Anywho... Michele and I have been trying to finish up a couple of books for release this summer, Caden being one of them and a few others.

But, today, I would like to share with you, Bearing It All...

BIA (As Michele and I refer to it, is Bodhi--Hayden's twin's book and Emma, our soft, gentle can get along with anyone, bear.

We also have a contest going right now for everyone to participate in. So, at the bottom of this, please fill out the form for your chance to win! Also, as a little reminder, Bearing It All is only 99 cents until it releases!!

Emma Monte has three really big secrets. One, she’s the guardian of her little sister Cassidy. Two, she loves everything 80’s inspired and three, she’s throwing the biggest wedding she can for her friends—okay, so maybe the second isn’t really a secret. When she’s invited to spend spring break with Hayden and her family in Window Rock, Arizona, all of her secrets will be revealed. 

Bodhi Raferty has been biding his time. He knows the little bear is his mate, but he’s willing to wait—if it means spending more time with her. When the opportunity arises to go home, he ready to take that final step and claim Emma for his own. However, his mate is hiding something huge. The only question is, can he help her pull it off?

Bodhi and Emma aren’t the only ones in for a surprise. As the week’s events unfold, there is a pair of Rafertys ready to be introduced, and they have the ability to upstage them all.


“No,” Emma answered. “I need space for two. Me and Cassidy.”
Bell glanced at the list. “Cassidy signed up for Tate's truck. She'll be with Tate, of course, Henry, Victor, and Shelly. By the way, who's Cassidy?”
“My sister,” Emma answered. Maybe she’d been a little too cautious when it came to keeping things to herself. “Surprise.”
“I already gave her the speech, don’t look at me,” Hayden said shrugging as she squeezed past them. “Are we ready to get this shindig on the road?
“You and I have so much to talk about on the way,” Bell said, as they headed for the door. “Lucky for you, we have one more seat in Jackson’s truck.”
Emma grimaced. “I don’t know. I don’t want to interrupt anything with you, Christoph, or Jackson.”
“You won’t be,” Bell answered, waving her off. “Besides, Bodhi is joining us.”
What, did everyone know about her deal with Hayden’s twin? “Uh . . . well . . . I guess, right? I mean it is the last spot.” She gave a nervous laugh.
“Oh, don’t be such a silly billy,” her friend chided. “We’re going to have fun. It’s only for a few hours.”
“Right. A couple of hours. What could go wrong?”
“Are we ready to go?” The deep, soulful sound of Bodhi's voice rocked Emma to her core.
“We were just finishing up car assignments.” Bell beamed. “Let’s go every—”
“They’re already outside, I came back in to get the both of you.” Bodhi pointed at Emma. “Little brunette out there said, and I quote, “you suck, carry your own shit,” end quote.”
“I am going to kill her.” Emma rubbed her forehead. “Sorry. She’s mad because she’s not at the lake with her friends.”
“’S okay,” Bodhi said. “I grabbed your stuff and put it in the back of Jackson’s truck.”
Did he have ESP, too? “Uh, thanks.”
“You’re welcome. We’re burning daylight, though.” Bodhi motioned for them to get going.
“You heard the man,” Bell said. “‘We’re burning daylight.’”

Exclusive Sneak Peek of His Scandalous Love

Her steps took her away from the main hub of town into the more residential section. Not that Jackson Hole was an overly large city by any measure. It was really more of a blip; the nearest large city was Cheyenne, a few hours south. Not once had she turned or looked over her shoulder in his direction during their trek. It was like she was in her own little world, hefting two reusable grocery bags from Lucy’s Market.
He just hoped like hell it wasn’t a case of mistaken identity.
She stopped at a duplex building. Really, the structure was nothing more than an oversized home that had been split into two residences. So clearly, if it was Jenna, she was living here in Jackson Hole. Why? Not that he would complain if it was her. If it was, he’d be elated about the chance to get some answers. Like why she’d fallen off the face of the earth only to end up in his town. The exterior of the duplex was finished in a deep, dark cherry colored wood, much darker than his ranch house but with the log cabin rustic theme that a majority of the homes in the area tended to have. His intended target climbed the wooden set of stairs, up to the second-floor dwelling.
She was no sooner inside the front door than Carter took the wooden stairs two at a time. When he reached the top, he drew in a deep, calming breath. To be this close after so much despair these past months… This was what he’d been waiting on for almost a year. A chance to see her again, hold her, paddle her fucking ass for ever leaving him and bury his aching cock inside her welcoming heat.
Or he was mistaken and had just followed a strange woman who could have passed for Jenna’s twin all the way home. If so, he would apologize profusely and leave at the soonest opportunity.
He lifted his hand, his fingers curled around the brass knocker and he banged it twice. If it was Jenna, what was she doing here? Why hadn’t she sought him out? How long had she been in Jackson? A myriad number of questions ran through his mind as he waited for her to answer the front door.
Then it opened, the hinges creaking in protest at the movement. Sunlight from the setting sun basked her visage in gold. And the pent-up breath he’d been holding expelled in a rush.
A smile spread over his face and a part of himself that had been missing these long months slid back into place. His eyes roamed over her, drinking in the sight of her standing so close.
“Well, well, darlin’, fancy seeing you here,” Carter purred, stunned at finding Jenna in his own backyard.
