Truth or Dare by Mira Lyn Kelly - Spotlight/Giveaway


Truth or Dare
Dare to Love # 1
By: Mira Lyn Kelly
Releasing September 16th, 2014
Loveswept



Blurb

In a deliciously sexy twist on the classic game, USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly proves that when playing truth or dare—always choose dare.

After her one attempt at commitment ends with the discovery that her fiancĂ© already has a wife and kid, Maggie Lawson vows that the only people she’ll love ’til death do they part will be her friends. Unfortunately that means Maggie letting her bestie rope her into a year-long dating dare: score a new date each month or pay a penalty. Seems doable—until Maggie’s date stands her up, leaving only one option: the sexy stud who just moved in upstairs. The problem? He and Maggie can’t stop fighting—and that’s just the beginning.

His name is Tyler Daniels and the last thing he needs is his neighbor distracting him with her girl-next-door smile and sharp tongue. Tyler’s in Chicago for one reason: to woo back his selfish ex in order to reclaim the child he once thought was his—and that means keeping Maggie out of his bed. A tall order, since Maggie has become a bigger temptation than he ever expected to face. But before they can even consider leaving the past behind, Maggie and Tyler must accept a brand-new dare: real, forever love.

$10.00 Amazon Gift Card





Ten years ago, he saved her life … and she’s never forgiven him for it.

Claire Masters never planned to return to Pecan Creek. After a suspicious fire killed her mother and sent her own life up in flames, she was ready for a fresh start – far away from the small Texas town.

Ethan Banks never asked to be the fire chief, but it’s the family business. Asking the FBI…and Claire Masters for help is the last thing he wants to do.

When a series of fires strikes the town, as one of the FBI’s top arson investigators, Claire reluctantly returns before the fires take a fatal turn.

Now the pair is forced to work side by side, and they’re reminded the heat between them has nothing to do with fire.

Beauty's Beast by Amanda Ashley - Review #kLover



Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself. . .

And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born--that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts...




I was prepared to enjoy this story a bit, but I wasn’t prepared to fall in love and be unable to put it down. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite fairytales, and this retelling was done beautifully and with enough uniqueness that I was waiting anxiously for what would happen next.

Kristine is an innocent young woman, who is hours away from the gallows, when she’s saved by the mysterious Lord of Hawksbridge. I loved Kristine because even though her marriage starts off a bit rough, she’s determined to make her marriage work. I love her for her courage, and her willingness to let Erik hide his issues, and not press him even though the curiosity is killing her.

Erik, was a good guy, he didn’t deserve the curse, and I think by allowing us to be in his point of view, the author endears us to him. At times his actions are very brutish and fitting with his curse of becoming a beast, but because we get to see his remorse and his true feelings, and I fell a little in love with him too.

The curse isn’t broken in the way I expected, and I liked that the author kept me guessing. I was very satisfied with the ending, and I would easily re-read this story again.





I received a copy for the purpose of review. I was not compensated for my review.
