Impressive cover reveal!

Hi, book buddies :-) I love cover reveals!! I was planning to do this cover reveal on my Instagram account (@babelreader), but unfortunately I got the materials too late and I wasn't able to take a nice photograph for you. Anyway, if I'm accepted for the blog tour, I will come back with a pretty pic :-D

Let us know what you think of the cover for Unraveled (Perfected, #3) 

by Kate Jarvik Birch, which releases April 3, 2018!

This cover reveal is brought to you by Entangled Teen.

About Unraveled:

Ella isn’t anyone’s pet anymore, but she’s certainly not free. After exposing the dark secrets about NuPet’s breeding program, forcing them to repeal the law that allowed genetically modified girls to be kept as pets, she thought girls like her would finally be free. She never dreamed that it would backfire. NuPet may have convinced the public of their intentions to assimilate pets back into society, but Ella knows it’s a lie. They aren’t planning mass rehabilitation...they’re planning a mass extermination. Now, with the help of a small group of rebels, Ella and Penn, the boy she’d give up her life for, set out to bring down NuPet for good. But when her group gets implicated in a string of bombings, no one is safe. If she can’t untangle the web of blackmail and lies that extends far beyond NuPet’s reach, she won’t just lose her chance at freedom, she’ll lose everyone she loves.

Midnight Hunter is amazing + giveaway

This is one of the best romances I've read in a long time,  this year and the previous included :-D It's got some dark romance elements and also a historical theme, with action and incredible sensuality. Read it!!!

Title: Midnight Hunter
Author: Brianna Hale
Genre: Dark Historical Romance
Release Date: February 7, 2018

He’s hunting me, and there’s nowhere to run.

East Berlin, 1963. I thought I understood the consequences of trying to flee to the West. Death. Imprisonment without trial. Instead I’m being hunted by the most dangerous man in the city, secret police officer Reinhardt Volker.

Now I’m his prize, no longer a traitorous factory girl but his elegant and pampered secretary. He wants to possess me, body, soul – and heart. I’ll do anything to get away from him, but first that means getting closer.

I want to feel only hatred for my captor but beneath his uniform I discover a man with a past as scarred as Berlin’s.

And if I don’t escape him soon it will be too late.


The impossible love between the lion and the gazelle

My heart is pounding even after I finished this read. It’s so powerfully arousing in its dark intent, and hopeful too, and a smart, emotional story that promises to be remembered.

The lion and the gazelle. The uniformed officer who hunts traitors at night in East Berlin. And he finds this defiant, innocent beauty he steals for himself. What a terrible dilemma! How can I like it so much, that this clever and tyrannical beast manipulates his little captive into needing him with her body and soul? Ah, but she also casts an allure on him. It was so exciting!

This story is beautifully written, and its magic resides in combining these characters that feel alive with their impossible personas as a couple and a twisted sensuality born out of oppression and longing and enmity.

I could feel how torn Evony is between the soldier, cruel and murderous, and the man, handsome and wounded and deliciously tempting. Can she get revenge on the monster or will she succumb to his strength even though she hates everything he stands for?

The plot also revolves around the political situation in Berlin during the 60s, with the Wall in place and all kinds of claustrophobic restrictions and laws. Shrouded in this climate, where fear breaths like a living entity, Reinhardt and Evony fight ceaselessly while they give in to opposing feelings. Lust, need, possessiveness. The guilty carnality of their union is slow and hot to come, which allows for a proper development of the plot and the personal growth of the characters. I loved the molten building of the physical nearness against all odds. I loved Evony’s strength of spirit, her inner struggle with her growing feelings for her enemy and protector, and his infinite patience, his immortal devotion towards her in the end.

She’s a prisoner and he’s her captor, but there’s so much going on at the same time. A poignant tale of forbidden love, espionage, drama, impossible choices and antagonistic views in life. Reindart and Evony are like Romeo and Juliet in war. Through blood, thrill and sacrifice they reach an epic finale. 

I’m so glad that this story has been written and that it now exists in my mind forever. I’ve just discovered my new favourite author.

Enjoy an excerpt
‘No. I will not let you go.’ His mouth is close to my ear and he doesn’t need to speak above a harsh, sinister whisper. ‘You don’t need reminders of your old life as you are never going back. Do you understand? This is your life now. You’re mine.’

Hearing him lay it out so coldly and brutally takes my breath away. I wish his housekeeper and secretary could see him now. They haven’t felt him ruthlessly hunt them down, catch them, possess them. Take sadistic pleasure in trapping them, body and soul. ‘You can’t make me forget who I am. I’ll always remember, and I’ll always hate you for what you’ve done.’

‘Oh?’ There’s so much scorn and amusement in that one brief question. His breath is warm against my ear and I feel him looking down at me, enjoying that he has me his mercy. He plants a slow, tender kiss on the side of my neck and I feel my pulse thundering beneath his lips. It’s a kiss that belies the cold cruelty of his words and the steel of his embrace. It’s the kiss of a lover, soft and sensuous, and something clenches low in my belly in response.

I expected cruelty, and armed myself against brutality, but I wasn’t prepared for this. I wasn’t prepared for him to be gentle and I don’t know how to fight it. He shifts his arms, one hand moving to caress my throat and I draw in a soft breath of surprise and need. He feels it, and his lips move up to my jaw, trailing burning kisses.

No, please, I don’t want this. He can’t strip me of my will to resist him along with everything else. I will garb myself in hatred for him. I will steep my body in antipathy and rage. Even so, it takes every ounce of strength I have to speak. ‘I’ll never be yours.’

But it comes out as a breathy whisper, not the defiant shout I wanted it to be.

His lips curve into a smile against my throat. ‘Oh, Liebling. Yes, you will. I have not even begun to try and you are already giving in.’

About the mastermind

There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.
I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I'm getting lucky. There shouldn't be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L'Etoile, everything changes.
1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.
2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can't I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.
Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I'm an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.

Addicted to your Poisson Kisses

Hello, book buddies :-) I'm not ashamed to confess that I'm addicted to the suspense romance that comes out of the rich imagination of Lisa Renee Jones. She's magnificient.

This time, the author has written an addictive story in three parts, sort of a serial, which works really well. Today it's release day for the first part. I liked reading it and biting my nails at the end, but I have to say that I couldn't stop there so I read the other two parts right away :-D

A sexy STANDALONE novel featuring Seth from the Dirty Money series! It is not necessary to read the Dirty Money series prior to enjoying this book. POISON KISSES will be released as three novellas in back to back weeks on Feb. 6th, 13th, and 20th!

Title: Poison Kisses Part One
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 6, 2018

Amanda Skye made me want her. She made me trust her. She made me love her. Then she betrayed me. And now, a madman brings us together again and before our battle with him is over, I will make sure that she never forgets my name: Seth Cage. The Fixer for The Brandon Family Empire, but to a covert CIA operation, I will always be The Assassin. And to Amanda, I will be the man who made her moan, sigh, and beg. And I will make her beg.


Addictive, fast-paced, clever and stimulating.

What happens when you mix the brilliant style of this author with the atmosphere of Kiefer Sutherland's TV series 24? Pure dynamite.

This former couple that mean to kill each other and met as agents on a mission years back, now have to forcibly work together again to stop a massive threat of security. They hate each other with a passion that can only be surpassed by the criminal secrets they share and the sheer vigour of their bond. Wow, what a heady cocktail!

Seth and Amanda get physical both in deadly and amorous ways pretty quickly in the story, which made my heart beat really fast. They are lethal weapons in and onto themselves, they act and speak accordingly. Sharp, smart, challenging. And oh the fierce chemistry between them! Enhanced by danger and mistrust, it jumps out of the page as a live wire. I loved how they work together, how synchronized their talents and skills. Despite the hatred for seemingly unforgivable acts on both parts, they are trained agents who ooze precision and efficiency. A killer and a scientist. Reminded me a bit of The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer and I adored that.

My only complaint is the opening scene which shows the hero in a very unflattering light.

I'm eager to find out if they can behave in their present mission without killing each other first. Or if desire will melt their brains :-D What is it that broke their love? Only one way to find out. The second part is coming!


Title: Poison Kisses Part Two
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 13, 2018

I loved her. She left me. She betrayed me but now it's time to open the closed doors. I'll tell her my secret if she tells me hers. Our history, is more than lies. It's our story, and I will do whatever it takes to reveal it all. I'm the Assassin, She's The Poison Princess. We're going to kill the bad guys, but we're still deciding if we're enemies. The one thing for certain, is we're both going to strip down and get bare.


What an intense middle chapter in this 3-part killer suspense. The author sets her two hard agents pitted against each other in a face-off in close quarters. I found it so arousing! Accusations fly along with demands for answers. They have to delve deep into what happened three years ago, and the plot thickens as more of the past resurfaces in flashbacks. The present mission gets darker, too.
Seth tells the story from his POV again, his feelings for his deadly scientist as powerful as his intent to uncover all the murky details of why she disappeared and if her guilt can be proven. 
Sleazy dealings and bloody terrorists tangle with hot reconciliation, all in that suspenseful and calculated style that the author masters. I truly love how she deals with stormy feelings while describing passionate lovemaking. Gorgeous!
And the cliffhanger in this installment is just awesome, heart-wrenching and oh so thrilling. Love it :-D
Favourite quote:
"You really are fearless, aren't you?"
"i fear things," she says. "Just not you"

Title: Poison Kisses Part Three
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 20, 2018

Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you. Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be the lie. I don't want to kill him. I don't want to leave him. I guess that's why they say there is a fine line between love and hate. I love and hate that man with such passion, that it damn near hurts. But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discovery about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it's time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.


 Espionage, deadly poisons and dirty operations run amok in this finale of the Poison Kisses serial. This is seriously thrilling. With a sharp style and no room for hesitancy, the plot tightens to a suffocating point. Seth and Amanda break through the last issue between them. Trust becomes a hot, deep, tantalizing test that reinforces their relationship and surely made my breathing heavy. What a scene!
The operation in motion reaches a crescendo, unburying the past in shocking ways. I enjoyed the scene with Bear and the piece of paper. Please, read that! Also, I'd love to read his own story and meet the woman who can handle all his glorious size. And Julie... what a phenomenal addition :-D
The threat to the population is handled through the skills and dedication of many minds working together. It shows the amount of thinking that was put into the investigation, how to link all the details and organize the threads into a coherent, smart and satisfying ending. I thought it would go differently, yet it was an interesting move. And the HEA is well deserved.

I'm addicted to this bunch of action men. I hope there are more stories in this world.

“I hate you, Seth Cage,” she proclaims in what I know to be an out-of-character emotional outburst that tells me I’ve rattled her.

And earns her my cool reply. “There’s a fine line between love and hate, sweetheart,” I say, but I don’t want her to hate me and it pisses me off. What is it about this woman that makes her my weakness? “I wonder if I missed the taste of poison on your lips, or did I just choose to ignore it?” And I need to know that answer. I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue sliding into her mouth, rough, angry, but she doesn’t respond. She doesn’t even touch me, and I won’t allow her that win. I fold her against me, cupping the back of her head, my tongue licking against hers until she finally fucking moans, and responds.

And damn it, she still tastes just as good as she did, just as right when she’s wrong, but at least I know now. Everything right about this woman will always be wrong, including the moment she bites my lips, drawing blood. “I still hate you,” she hisses.

Wiping my lip, I’m wildly aroused by what just happened, which proves how fucked in the head this woman makes me. And while I’m certain we’d both be more than comfortable with the idea of me pulling her skirt up and fucking her right now, and letting her think she’s manipulating me again, that has to wait until I have her someplace to myself. I release her, snatching up her gun and shoving it under my jacket, inside my holster. “Meet me at the south exit. If you aren’t there, I’ll kill you and then move on to Plan B and kill Franklin. And yes. This is a test. Pass it or you’ll be in my bed, in handcuffs for the rest of your life.”

“You said you’d kill me.”

“After I cuff you to my bed.”

I move to the door and exit into the staff hallway, and then the main school hallway, the scent of her, sweet jasmine, clinging to my skin. Damn it, I used to love that smell.

I’m halfway to the exit when suddenly she’s beside me. “As I know you know from whatever file they gave you on me,” she says without looking at me, “I watched people die because of that man in China seven years ago when he set off poison gas in the subway. I’m not sitting back while he does it again.”

I don’t reply. I just keep walking, but now she’s by my side again, as she was for three solid months, three years ago. Her words and actions are reminding me of what I’d found so damn appealing about this woman: her conviction and her moral compass that were greater than mine, that made her too good for me, and yet, made me want her all the more. Only, it was an act, a façade maintained even now and well. She’s an enemy in an uncomfortable alliance. I don’t believe a word she has said.

We reach the exit and I pause with her directly to my right, my eyes capturing hers. “You’re with me now and no one gets to take you from me. And I’m the only one who gets to kill you.”

“You’re so damn romantic,” she says. “No wonder I missed you.”

“You missed me, sweetheart?”

“That wasn’t literal.”

My lips curve. “And yet you kissed me like you missed me.”

Let's make a deal and not fall in love

I confess that I was drawn to the funny and sexy premise that the title so clearly states :-D And the result is so spectacular. I loved the story!

The Baby Maker

Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 5, 2018

What does HE say?

Some men are troublemakers or dealmakers. The men in my family? We’re baby makers.

For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven.

Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line.

But then one night Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse—she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor…

A big, fat, baby making favor…

What does SHE say?

When I hear women have gotten pregnant shaking hands with Hunter men, I know I need Dylan Hunter’s…ahem, special skills…way more than I need to expand my vineyard.

I’m ready to give my heart to a child and I’m tired of waiting for my late-to-the-party Prince Charming to make my dreams come true. So I promise Dylan—three months of hot, heavy, baby-making s-e-x and then I’m out of his hair forever.

But what if when it comes time to say good-bye, all I want to do is keep bottling up more memories with this big-hearted man?

This sexy Standalone romance will make you laugh, swoon, and blush baby-makin’ red. Heat level: A risk of getting knocked up during download. Paperback and audio versions are especially dangerous. Handle with care…


Wanna go on a baby-making spree? 

Funny, witty, and deliciously hot. Add to the mix a lively writing style with catchy dialogues and explosive chemistry, and the story is just a  winner.

I absolutely loved this romance. There's nothing to complain about and everything to praise. The premise is too exciting to resist. A woman cannot suppress her desire for a baby any longer. Accidentally, she overhears about the Superman reputation of the Hunter men when it comes to impregnating matters. Thus starts her plan to lure her grouchy, yet staggeringly attractive neighbour into her babymaking plans.

It's also the start of a memorable comedy romance that I loved till the very last and truly sweet page. Both characters are adorable. Emma is ingenious and optimistic, Dylan is steadfast and hardworking, loyal to his family. From enemies to lovers, through a hilarious and daring pact, they fall into ardent bed times that could burn sheets with no incredulity on anyone's part.

Beyond those delicious scenes, the relationship is beautiful and full of laughter, cheeky banter, a great bunch of relatives, a dreams for the future only tempered by natural fears that endeared them to me, and a fantastic backdrop of a winemaking landscape and a quaint town.

Reading this felt like a breeze. I laughed, I got excited, and it turned a bad day into a good one. Great way to meet a new author!

Are you a Good Girl?

I don't know about you, book buddies, but sometimes being a good girl pays off :-D


GOOD GIRLS SAY YES by Penny Wylder is LIVE!!

Release Date: January 31st



99¢ and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!!

AMAZON PAPERBACK: http://amzn.to/2GxH9qA
Add to Goodreads:


At a very unorthodox wedding, Emma has an unforgettable encounter with a man whose intense challenge will change her to the core. This tale about trust and lust shows how a woman learns about her own sexuality in a very unconventional way. The scenes are lush, erotic, and they show the learning process of the Dom/sub lifestyle. 

Mathew Forester is one charismatic man. I might have been anxious in her circumstances, but it was certainly thrilling to witness all the little lessons and advice he had for her. I liked the corset metaphor so much! I loved the narrative and the well set emotions and atmosphere.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of bossy doms who issue punishments and decide everything for their subs, but the very sensual and intense setting of this relationship is definitely enjoyable.

Emma's struggle to overcome her fears mixes with the schorching-hot intimacy to create a very entertaining and naughty romance where a man falls in love with his new sub and a woman finds out what she's been missing thanks to the patience of her Dom.


He promises he'll have me on my knees in three days.
When I found out my friend is getting married, I was happy for her. But I had no idea who she was marrying.
Apparently he's a Dom. So are all of his friends. I'm learning a LOT about her lifestyle, now that I'm in the middle of her wedding.
That's how I met him.
He's calm and cold and hotter than hell. He also thinks he knows everything about women.
Thanks to a little liquid courage, I give him a piece of my mind.
I tell him not every girl wants to be conquered by an alpha male – especially one who thinks too highly of his own skills in bed.
He offers me a bet. If he can get me to do whatever he says, after just three days with him, then I'll have to spend a month as his “good girl” submissive. If he can't, he gives me $100,000.
It's a stupid bet, but it's win-win for me. I get to prove him wrong and walk away with 100 grand? Sign me up.
But I don't know what I'm walking into.
I don't know what he's capable of.
I don't know how easy it'll be for him to get me on my knees... begging him to just do whatever he wants.
Telling him that I'm a good girl.
And screaming the word yes, yes, yes!

This is a standalone FULL LENGTH NOVEL with a HEA and NO cheating!
Penny Wylder writes just that-- wild romances. Happily Ever Afters are always better when they're a little dirty, so if you're looking for a page turner that will make you feel naughty in all the right places, jump right in and leave your panties at the door!



“Hands above your head.” His tone doesn’t leave any room for argument, and I raise my hands. Matthew catches them, crossing them at the wrists and holding them captive in one hand. He’s strong—I might as well be wearing handcuffs for all that I’d be able to pull away from him, and my heart beats a little bit faster at the thought. He said to say ‘Red’ if I’m uncomfortable, but I’m not yet, even if my body instinctually recognizes danger.
“If we had more than fifteen minutes,” he says softly, “there are lots of things that I could do to show you what this life is about. But right now, it’s simple. Submission isn’t about me holding you down for sex, or about you becoming a doormat. It’s about trust, and offering something to one another. At the most basic level, you offer me power over you in exchange for pleasure, and I offer you freedom from having to make every decision.”
The most basic level, he said. What are the other levels? But now he’s kissing me and I can’t think because I’m once again on fire. Hot arousal rolls through me like a wave, and I moan, unable to help myself. Matthew simply chuckles against my lips and deepens the kiss, as if he knew that I would react this way.
I want more of him. More, more, more is the chant in my brain, and I try to move, to pull him closer, but I can’t. Shock and frustration hit me as I remember that I can’t move my arms. He has them pinned against the wall and all I can do is let him kiss me. My breath goes short in my chest, and I realize that he’s made me wet again. Damn him for being such a good kisser, because that’s all it is. I’m turned on from the kiss, and not from the fact that he’s restricting my movement.
He pulls away for a moment. “Spread your legs.”
I do.

This story took me as a Hostage

Skye Warren is back, book buddies, and she's plotting with Annika Martin to make us a HOSTAGE to their dark writing :-D

Hostage by Skye Warren & Annika Martin 
Publication Date: January 30th, 2018 Genre: Romantic Suspense

I never knew when he’d come to me. Only that he would.
I’d never even kissed a boy the night I met Stone. The night I saw him kill. The night he spared my life. That was only the beginning.
He turns up in my car again and again, dangerous and full of raw power. “Drive,” he tells me, and I have no choice. He’s a criminal with burning green eyes, invading my life and my dreams.
The police say he’s dangerously obsessed with me, but I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about him. Maybe it’s wrong to let him touch me. Maybe it’s wrong to touch him back. Maybe these twisted dates need to stop. Except he feels like the only real thing in my world of designer labels and mansions.
So I drive us under threat, until it’s hard to remember I don’t want to be there.
Until it’s too late to turn back.

HOSTAGE is a dangerous standalone romance by New York Times bestselling authors Skye Warren and Annika Martin. It’s set in the same world as PRISONER, but can read separately!


Dark romance is a guilty pleasure. For the never simple reason that it delves deep in your phyche and kindles its most secretive desires. In the hands of these two authors, the guilt and the pleasure take a new, twisted, unbearably intimate meaning.

Imagine a flower of a girl and a soulless killer meet one night of terror. She sees something forbidden, he sets out to kill her. In the way to the dark deed, a connection happens, and their incompatible path changes course forever.

In a beautifully poetic and subtle writing, the authors have spun a tale of grit, blood and tender breaking of innocence, and reshaped it into an improbable yet powerful love. The vulnerability of a victim comes across in harrowing detail while the struggle of a killer to let go of his rules is palpable.

In one night, these characters forge a bond that grows from sickening menace to clinging hope. The frightening lust turns into molten desire and the hell of two broken lives gives birth to a journey of what trust truly means and how men can become animals, sometimes even come back from that to be human again.

I loved the cruel scene of Stone vowing to kill his sweet victim and how it all changed. I loved the evolution of their relationship, so terrible and soulful. It was like witnessing a fallen angel falling in love with an untouched angel. It was a painful joy to see all the men in the gang, bonded in blood and misery, at their headquarters, plotting and coping. And Stone was a veritable force of nature, an avenging father to them all. I also loved Brooke, full of light yet suffocating in a life with no real feelings. They have to cross through fire in order to get to paradise. All worth it. Like this incredible dark romance that deals with dark issues and the darkest side of men. The sensuality was both menacing and freeing. Priceless! 

Impressive, sensual, eye-opening, and beautiful.

It’s him or me. It’s stand here and let a man die, or do something—for once in my life, do something that’s not wearing a dress and smiling and getting it all wrong. So I run out there. I watch myself do it, like a movie almost. “Stop it,” I yell. The attacker just keeps on, a dark storm, all fists and fury. My presence means nothing to him. My words don’t touch him. It’s as if I’m yelling at thunder. My heart beats out of my chest. I’ve risked everything, come out in the open, but it’s not enough. I stamp my foot to get his attention, crushing gravel beneath my mother’s Louboutins. 

  “The cops are coming,” I say. The man stills and looks up. It’s a shock when it happens, even though I’ve been trying to get him to see me. His eyes seem to blaze into my chest, hot and bright. Breathless, I back away. He stands, leaving the man in a groaning, whimpering heap. I retreat slowly, showing him my phone, as though that might protect me. “Cops are coming,” I say again. A lie. I couldn’t punch in the code. He’s coming at me, expression unreadable. He’s a few years older than I am—late twenties, maybe. My back hits something hard. The van. He keeps coming. I try to spin and run, but he grabs my arm and slams me back into the van. 

“Where do you think you’re going, little girl?” I stare up at him, panting. His warm breath is a feather on my nose; the heat in his eyes invades me. He grabs my hair and tilts my head back, forcing me to stare into his face, as if he’s trying to read my eyes. A moment later, he looks up at the night sky. He seems almost wolfish, and I’m conscious, suddenly, of my bare neck so close to his snarling mouth. I wonder if he’s staring at the moon. It’s like he’s going to howl or something. Then I get it. He’s listening for sirens. “You’re a little fucking liar.”
