Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
A killer is hiding in Plain sight…
The hunt for a serial killer leads Homicide Detective Josiah Troyer back to his Amish roots. To catch a madman preying on young women, Joe must return to Lancaster County and regain the trust of a shattered community.
The FBI knows Joe is the best chance they have of solving this case. By returning to Lancaster, he will face shunning, and resentment from the people he once called family and friends.
Hannah’s heart was broken when Josiah abandoned her eight-years ago to live with the Englishers. Forced to wed a man not of her choosing, her husband’s untimely death has left her struggling to put her life back together.
When unspeakable tragedy strikes again, Josiah unexpectedly returns, investigating the murder of her sister and two other young Amish women. Hannah quickly discovers the man that’s come back is not the same one she fell in love with.
Gone are Josiah’s easy smiles and gentle ways. He’s harder, colder—a true Englisher… But not even shunning can stop the attraction from consuming them both, and Josiah soon opens Hannah’s eyes to a world of passion and pleasure she never imagined. Choosing Josiah would mean walking away from the only world she’s ever known.
Josiah’s investigation begins to unravel when he discovers the killer is closer than he thought. Soon, he’s in a race against time to save the only woman he’s ever loved before she becomes the next victim.

My Review:
This was my first book by Melynda Price and to me she knocked it out of the park. This book was filled with mystery and romance. It is a bit different from most books I have read including the Amish. 

Eight years ago Detective Josiah "Joe" Troyer left his family and the Amish community where he was raised in Lancaster County Pennsylvania after asking for the love of his life's hand in marriage and was turned down by her father. By leaving the community he is shunned. In the Amish community this means no one will speak to or even acknowledge a shunned person. Joe goes on with his life in the English world and becomes a detective in the police force. 

The FBI is looking for a madman who is killing young Amish women and taking their hair as trophies. The FBI comes to Joe knowing his acquaintance with the Amish. Joe decides to go along with the FBI and be part of the investigation, even with his doubts of going home so to speak. 

Hannah has been heartbroken for 8 years. When the love of her life just walks away one day. While working in a small inn near the Amish Community she lives in she comes face to face with the only man she has ever loved as well as the man who broke her heart.  Detective Josiah "Joe" Troyer.

When they meet face to face all the pain and the love come back to both of them. Hannah's husband has passed away and her younger sister was one of the victims of what the FBI are calling the "Barber", Joe asks Hannah to help him with talking to the other families and members of the community knowing they will not speak to a shunned person. Reluctantly Hanna agrees. Needing to know what happened to her sister and to get justice for her. 

With Hannah's help Joe sets out to bring the "Barber" down before he takes another victim. But they have to survive the investigation themselves.

GENRE: YA, Sci-fi, Romance

One pre-apocalyptic Earth. One desperate space mission to find a solution. One unexpected alien.

When Dr. Sakota Thorell signed onto the mission to scout out a new, habitable planet, she knew discovering extraterrestrial life was always a possibility. But she never expected to find an alien adrift in space, nor for that alien to be so intriguing. Sakota feels an instant and undeniable attraction to Astraeus, but he represents a million possibilities, and just as many threats.

There are others hunting Astraeus, and his rescue may cost Earth its last hope.

Read an excerpt:

She moved to pull away, but the man’s fingers closed over her wrist.

“Let me go.” She jerked her arm, but he wouldn’t release his grip. She gave him a cautionary look, and he loosened his fingers, though he still held her. Warning bells went off. What if he’s not here in peace? But his eyes sparkled impishly. He seemed to enjoy her skin pressed against his. Maybe he hadn’t been touched in a while. Or maybe he had a crush. Who knew.

Before she could extricate herself, the intercom chimed. “Sakota, are you okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine. He’s just being friendly—”

The man’s forefinger trailed along her arm again. She sucked in a breath and shut her eyes as a series of images flashed through her mind. A high wall made of stacked stones. A hand spread out to touch the tips of tall, golden wheat of a field. Multihued buildings in the distance under a purple sky. Children’s laughter and then screams. She jerked when the images changed. Strange rain, like metal. Black ships attacking from the sky, horrible screams which rent the air, death. A gentle brush against her hand again. She inhaled and opened her eyes. The man searched her, calm and patient. She struggled to see straight, but her mind spun.

“W-was that your—”

The isolation walls shot up. Rutledge burst into the room and advanced like an angry bear, brutish, immaculate, and combat ready in his black Oceanstone fatigues. “Let her go,” he snarled.

Rutledge yanked the man’s hand off her and pushed her aside. She fell to the floor on her back in a dizzy haze, reeling from the vision. She turned her head. The man bellowed and tore loose from his restraints. His and Rutledge’s images faded into one as they collided and fought. Rutledge’s weapon whirred as he strained to activate it. The rifle propelled over her head and hit the wall.

“Stop.” Her pleas fell on deaf ears. She closed her eyes.

The men barged into the room with heavy footfalls and angry shouts. She opened her eyes, but her vision swirled. The blurred image of the alien lifted Rutledge’s lieutenant like a kitchen chair and catapulted him in the same direction as the weapon. “Stop,” she hollered to the men. “Don’t shoot him. He wasn’t attacking me.”

Another soldier fell to the floor with a sick thud, holding his stomach. “Yeah? Well, he’s attacking me.”

The alien pounced over her, crouching low. He caged her with his body and made a guttural rumble in his throat, a warning to the men. She turned her head to the marines, who zeroed their weapons in on them.

Adventures of Little Lady Jane by Breanna Hayse

Little Lady
of Little Lady Jane Book 1
Breanna Hayse

Historical Romance 


Victorian Age-Play is a unique tale of love, pain, discipline, and
trust that extends across the globe. From the hard, gray lines of
Victorian England to the colorful magic and mystery of India, this
story unfolds with the opening of the ancient Indian book of sex –
the Kama Sutra. The book contains sensual/disciplinary spankings and
explicit sex scenes. If such material offends you, please do not buy
this book. If it does not, then sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy
a Victorian romance like no other.”

love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. – David

Foster, the ward and fiancée of Marquis Philip de Courtier, never
knew how the forbidden book stolen from Philip’s library would
change both of their lives. For hours, she would sit on the garden
swing and secretly study the pictures illustrating the ancient text.
She longed to be like the beautiful, sensual women who twisted their
bodies into works of art; and to be anything other than Philip’s

was easy for Jane to call him ‘Papa’. She had teasingly done so
for years; but as an adult, she discovered that the term came with a
price- bare bottom spankings for breaking his rules. And Jane made
certain to break plenty! Her rebellion grew every time he left her
alone in the cold, dark manor. Rebellion that turned to
neither knew that the words in the Kama Sutra had taken root in their
hearts- Philip through the teachings of his friend, the Raja; and
Jane, through the stolen moments with her book. Upon his return from
his latest trip to India, Jane found the confidence to express her
needs. The cries of her heart were heard and, on that fateful night,
Philip’s Little Janie was (temporarily) transformed into his Lady
Jane had a secret. One she was afraid would repel Philip and make him
change his mind about making her his wife. She found new friends
within the Palace walls of the Raja and his family, and they helped
her accept her secret with pride. She learned quickly that as much as
Little Janie was loved by ‘Papa’, Lady Jane was the center of his
heart and the desire of his body. She also discovered that as painful
as his loving discipline was, the sexual satisfaction was even
greater. Like the positions on the Kama Sutra, nothing was left for
the imagination.
fictional story of Little Lady Jane encompasses the essence of the
Kama Sutra in a real life scenario, and shows how possible true
transformation (in the heart, mind, spirit and body) can be achieved,
even the stringent society of Victorian England. The sensuality and
sexuality of India replaces the rigid rules and uncompromising
dictates of Victorian society, and a story of passion, pain,
adventure, and sexual awakening blooms from the depths, like the
lotus flower arises out of the darkness of a muddy pond.

and strictest of the Raj’s rampantly sexual wives, and then going
on to practice all she’s learned on her handsome fiancé.

blossoms in her discovery of sexual and sensual freedom, but she
still struggles to curb her recalcitrant streak-one which frequently
lands her in hot water with Philip, Usha, and even the Raja, who does
not hesitate to show her how strictly (and unusually) he deals with
disobedience with his own ladies.

Jane as her relationship with Philip continues to grow in this, a
tale of exotic beauty, Victorian age-play, scorching, explicit
lovemaking and, of course, creative and rigorous discipline.

Primal Possession
Tabitha Black
(Alphas of Sandor, #1)
Publication date: May 30th 2019
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

If only I hadn’t been captured on market night…

Despite being born an Omega, I refused to spend my life in a facility, waiting for a suitable Alpha to claim me as his. Instead, with the help of my family, I broke the law, hiding among the Betas, trying to live a normal life.

It worked for five long years…

… until I was caught.

Now I’ve been chosen by Arius, the second most powerful Alpha in Sandor. The moment my scent reached him, overcome by the rut, he had to take me. As his mate, I can have anything my heart desires – anything he has the power to give.

The only thing I don’t have is a choice.

Publisher’s Note: This dark MF Omegaverse romance contains elements of power exchange and explicit scenes which may trigger some readers.

Goodreads / Amazon


Saskia willed herself to stop trembling but it was damn near impossible. Especially when the huge, intimidating man stopped in front of her, pinned her in place with a piercing gray stare, and went absolutely still. It was as though he were carved out of stone.

His nostrils flared as if in slow motion and her heart beat a frantic tattoo in her chest as he inhaled and she watched his expression change from one of mild curiosity to a look of raw, primal hunger.

He looked like he would devour her.

She had seen one or two Alphas from a distance, but never before had she stood in such close proximity to one. Even more impressive than the trademark expensive clothing they wore, which she had only ever viewed from afar, this one up close radiated power and dominance in a way she had never experienced before. He was undeniably attractive, in his perfectly tailored gray suit, but the way he was staring at her—like a cat eyeing a mouse—was distinctly unnerving.

Breathe through your mouth, her mother had always warned her. If an Alpha’s pheromones reach you and he’s a breeding match, it will all be over. He’ll go into rut, you’ll go into estrus, and you’ll be powerless to stop him. It’s imperative that you don’t smell him.

Saskia squeezed her eyes shut; the only way she could think of to escape that penetrating gaze he was leveling on her. But even against the sudden dark backdrop of her closed eyelids, his face remained as though imprinted in her mind.

His long, shaggy black hair.

His slightly hooked nose.

His full, sensuous lips.

The stubble coating his square, tense jaw.

And those eyes… those iron-gray eyes which seemed to see right down into her soul.

Saskia concentrated on breathing through her mouth until he interrupted her with a growl.

“I thought I told you to look at me.”

With a supreme effort, she forced her eyes back open and herself to meet his stare head-on. Determined not to cower or show any sign of fear, she lifted her chin and took a deep breath.

Too late, she realized her mistake.

Author Bio:

USA Today bestselling author Tabitha Black has been writing erotic romance for well over a decade, mostly in the age-play and historical genres. More recently, she's discovered the joys of writing more contemporary books with a greater emphasis on BDSM, as well as darker, edgier fiction.

Having lived in four countries on three different continents, she likes to "write to discover what she knows."

She has a weakness for great coffee, strong, kind but dominant men, and tattoos. At the time of writing, she lives in Germany with her very own dominant, sadistic and loyal romantic hero, and a lilac cat who likes to sneeze in her face.

“Hey, Mia Hamm,’’ a deep rumbling voice called from above
I turned in the direction of the voice. The handsome man I
saw yesterday playing football with his son was calling to me from the second-floor
“Mia Hamm. The famous soccer player.”
“I know who Mia Hamm is. I’m not her, and you’re in Barbados
where we call it football.”
“Well, I don’t know your name. Why don’t you tell me what it
is so I know what to call you and then you can tell me where you learned to
play football like that.”
“I think you’ll find that most people who grew up in the
Caribbean can pass a football with some skill. I’m not special.”
“I don’t know if I agree with that.” He grinned, and I felt
myself flush. “And you still haven’t told me your name.”
“Where are your wife and son?” I asked, deciding to nip this
little game in the bud.
His brow furrowed in confusion before realization hit.
“What? No. She is not my wife and Philip is not my son.”
Something that felt suspiciously like hope caused my heart
to flutter at his words, but he was probably lying.
“That little boy looked exactly like you.”
“Hey, I’m not saying he’s not a good looking kid.” His grin
returned, and so did my flush. “He’s just not my kid.”
“Well, his mother seemed interested. Why don’t talk to her
about soccer?”
“I’m not interested in his mother.” He gave me a pointed
look, his grin still firmly in place.
My stupid heart fluttered again.
“I’m already taken,” he said.
The fluttering stopped.
“But the problem is, she won’t tell me her name.” He tucked
his bottom lip between his teeth, still grinning.
And the fluttering returned. A deep breath helped me calm
myself and regain focus before I pressed the elevator button again, knowing
that it would do nothing to make the elevator come faster.
I glared at him and rolled my eyes. He was leaning over his
balcony waiting for an answer.
“No,” I said finally.
“No, what?” he asked.
“Whatever you want. Whatever you think this is. The answer
is no.”
“It can be whatever you want it to be.” That line would’ve
been incredibly sleazy from anyone else, but he made it sound so sincere and
almost convincing that it was clear I needed to keep my distance from him, no
matter how charming he was and no matter how long it had been since I felt a
man’s hands on my body.
“Good,” I said. Mercifully, the elevator arrived at that
moment, and I stepped inside. “Nothing it is.”
