It’s up to Archer, Gage, and Matt to make sure this day goes off without a hitch. But between brides and babies, there’s the not-so-little issue of the million dollar bet to attend to.

Pre-Order Links:



I’m going to have a baby,” Ivy declares as she stops directly in front of me. Well, her belly stopped directly in front of me, the rest of her soon follows.
Yes, indeed, my wife is definitely going to have a baby. Soon.
I’m getting ready—staring at the mirror as I mess with my tie, making sure it’s perfect—when she approaches me. I shoot her a grin, feeling good, feeling on top of my game. Life couldn’t get any better, you know? We’re celebrating today and with good reason.
“I know, sexy mama.” I turn away from the mirror and wink at her. “Trust me, I haven’t forgotten that I’m the one who knocked you up.”
She stares at me, no reaction to my wink or my words. She usually slaps my ass and kisses me. Says something sarcastic at the very least. But I’m getting nothing. And it’s kind of disconcerting. “Archer. I’m dead serious. I’m going to have the baby.”
“I know, babe. And I can’t freaking wait.” I study her, noticing that she looks a little pale and her pupils are dilated. Hmm. “You feeling okay?”
Rolling her eyes, she rests her hand on top of her protruding stomach, rubbing it absently. Then not so absently. As in, she’s clutching her belly like she’s in pain. “I’m in—” She sucks in a harsh breath, holding it for a few seconds. “—labor, damn it.”

Overwhelmed by You


Author: Nashoda Rose

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 3, 2014

Hosted by:Book Enthusiast Promotions


Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.


I don’t beg.
I don’t cry.
And I don’t give second chances.

Ream, the lead guitarist of the rock band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot.
I hate him.

Until …

Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he was loud and obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy. Except me … I don’t beg—ever.
But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s steady confidence that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers.


Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.


Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it and I hated it—until her. She was unfuckinexpected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past.
I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.

*Warning contains violence, sexual content, and coarse language. Mature audiences 18+*

A contemporary romance with lots of angst and a taste of dark.

Book Summary:

Madison Spencer is a serious medical student, focused only on work and hiding her beauty and her once-passionate spirit behind a quiet plain-Jane facade. Since she was drugged, stripped, assaulted and photographed by a vengeful ex, she has stayed away from men and kept her heart and body safe.

But when heart-stoppingly gorgeous Dr. Liam Mason walks into her world, she knows she’s in trouble. After finding out about her devastating past, Liam offers to bring her back to life with physical passion. Madison thinks she should be repelled, but she’s intrigued and can’t turn him away. Together they explore days and nights of pleasure, and slowly develop into something more than bedmates.

Deep inside they each wonder if they’ve found their perfect match. But with Liam’s fear of being dragged down by commitment, and Madison’s fear of being hurt by another man threatening to destroy the world they’ve built together, will they each be strong enough and brave enough to risk their hearts to have it all?

I can’t even blame it on the booze. There wasn’t any, or at least there wasn’t any for me. I was with Chloe, my bodyguard. Okay, actually she was my friend, but a really overprotective friend who knew all about what I’d been through and wanted to make sure it never happened again. So, no alcohol.

But, what she and I hadn’t counted on was him being there. There I was, minding my own business, putting in my time at the Med School Social, more than ready to head home for some studying, then Chinese food and a movie. And suddenly, him.

I was inhaling when I caught sight of him, but my breath just stopped. It felt like being punched in the chest. I kept telling myself, look away, look away! But it was impossible. I was paralyzed. His beautiful face and magnificent body were magnets, and my eyes were locked on them.

I hadn’t felt this kind of physical attraction since, well, ever. I had never felt like that. I had stayed away from men for two years. I was pretty much terrified of them, to tell the truth. But there he was. Unavoidable and irresistible.

I saw him in profile. Oh, that hair. Thick, almost curly, falling into his eyes. The kind of hair you need to gently push off of his face right before you kiss him. Or, the kind of hair you grab really hard right before you’re about to…

But, I’m getting ahead of myself. The point I’m trying to make is that my mind very clearly recognized all the dangers ahead and was saying, “Turn around, go, get out of here! Before it’s too late.” But then he turned around to look right at me. It was already too late.

We held each other’s gaze a second longer than politeness required. Something inside me went click, and for the first time in almost two years, I felt young and alive, and really, really turned on. Every part of me suddenly woke up, and all the best parts started to tingle. I was breathing harder. My lips parted slightly, already begging to be kissed.

It was a little overwhelming. I was out of practice. No, actually, I had never had the kind of practice you would need to stay controlled in a situation like that. I think maybe you can have a soul mate for your mind, and also one for your body. And my body was saying “Get me over there right now!”

But I was still too afraid. I smiled a little and turned away.

I had to stay for a while, to look sociable, so I went over to the food table and stared at the snacks, which were already stale. Nothing looked very good, and my throat was too tight to eat anyway.

I was starting to formulate a plan for escaping without the other students or the teachers noticing when I felt the air move behind me, the softest caress against my bare shoulders. Then, a hand on my back, an electric shock to my body, wildly pleasurable. I gasped and spun around. Right into the arms of…

“I’m Liam.”

Liam. Right into the arms of Liam. Oh, he was even more beautiful up close. My hand rose all on its own to push that wonderful floppy hair from his face. I stopped suddenly, embarrassed, but he caught my wrist, and held my palm gently to his face. We looked at each other and knew.

“Wanna get out of here?” he asked, and of course, foolish, foolish woman that I am, I said, “Yes.”

I saw him my first day at the new hospital. I’m a medical student and had just finished the lecture part of things where we sit around learning about chemical reactions and body parts. That was over, at last, and we were moving on to seeing real live patients in the hospital.

The orientation was step one in getting us ready for our new roles. We each got a short lab coat and a tour of the locker rooms. We received our ID tag photos.

I’m not sure why I first noticed Liam.

Since the bad thing happened, I keep my head down and make eye contact with pretty much nobody. I wear my hair in a tight bun at the nape of my neck and my clothes are dull and loose. On that particular day, I was trying very hard to concentrate. I was excited to be starting work in the hospital, but I was mostly terrified. There was so much to take in and remember. My head was reeling after only two hours. The last thing on my mind was men. So, who knows why I took that second look as he walked by our group.

Well, actually I do know why. He was gorgeous. Ridiculously gorgeous. Dark wavy hair, just slightly overgrown so he looked like a happy surfer who’d tumbled out of bed. Smiling eyes. Sparkling, mischievous, movie star eyes. A little bit of stubble, likely because he had been on call all night. The rest of him looked pretty much immaculate. He wore light wool pants and a sky blue shirt. No tie, but the white lab coat made him look professional enough.

I was dedicated to maintaining my nun-like lifestyle, but, seriously, it was impossible not to look at him. Even Chloe noticed him. She looked at him, then at me. She shook her head lightly and whispered, “No”. I laughed a little because she sounded like a mom telling a toddler that she couldn’t have any candy. Well, that was pretty much what was happening, so I guess Chloe nailed that.

She was absolutely right. I didn’t want any trouble. Certainly not that awful, frightening feeling of falling in love. No time-consuming romance. And certainly not all the time I had lost trying to recover from the trauma of what had happened before. Even a plain old tiny heartbreak could set me back, and put me way off course in my career.

No, I didn’t have the time or energy for any distractions. Nothing. Just work and school.

So I ignored the stunning resident with the black hair, and tried to focus on the tall blond giving us the orientation spiel. This was much easier because I felt no attraction to him at all. He was really handsome, too. But something about him seemed mean. Or maybe arrogant. It’s hard to remember what I thought of him that first time, because the memory is so clouded with all that came after. I’ll just say he was a tall, slim blond who should have caught my eye, but didn’t.

Release Day Book Tour: Review + Interview~ The Temptations of Anna Jacobs by Robyn DeHart

Temptation of Anna Jacobs BannerWelcome to the Blog tour for Robyn’s Release Day Tour!!!

You do not know how excited I am about this book!!! So Lets get down to business!

The Temptations of Anna Jacobs
Release Date: April 15, 2014
Dangerous Liasons series, book 2

Love and justice…

When Drew Foster is released from prison, he doesn’t much care about salvaging his soiled reputation. Though he’s working undercover, everyone in Victorian London believes him guilty of the Jack the Ripper murders and that his brother paid for his “innocence.”

Despite her genteel upbringing, Anna Jacobs is intent on finishing medical school and becoming a physician. Society’s ridicule has never bothered her, but when her brother, the Yard’s best detective, is scorned for letting Drew go, she confronts the one man who can set the record straight at a ball. She certainly doesn’t count on the rogue being dashing and handsome, nor on him stealing a passionate kiss.

Anna’s brazen contempt for his dangerous reputation captivates Drew, but he is harboring secrets that make him unfit to court any proper woman. As he finds himself an outsider among his colleagues at Scotland Yard, the feisty beauty offers up her medical knowledge to assist him on the case. But when the real killer returns to London to continue his reign of terror, can Anna find safety in Drew’s arms?

Interview with the amazing Robyn DeHart!!!

Welcome Robyn! I think this is the first time I’m hosting you here at Doing Some Reading. I hope it’s not too cramp with my loads and loads of piles of books everywhere.

Not even a little bit. I love squeezing in among all these books! And thanks for having me.

dcfd3-secretsofmiadanversI cannot tell you how excited I am for Drew and Anna’s story~ As you may remember, I hit you up with an email right after I finished your first book in the Dangerous Liaisons series with, The Secrets of Mia Danvers. And I got some very tasty information *wink wink*

Oh, yes, I totally remember your email. Made my day. When a reader finishes a book and then just HAS to write me, that’s when I know I’ve done my job as a writer.

But yes, of course, the interview! Lets not forget that ~

1. So Robyn, What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

Well, my schedule is sporadic now that I have kids. I used to have an actual schedule and I suspect someday I will again – when they’re both in school. But for now I write on Tuesdays & Thursdays when they go to Mother’s Day Out and then during naptime and after bedtime. When I’m on a tight deadline then my family helps – my mom will babysit or my husband will take them on the weekends. So we make it work. It’s not easy, but that’s the way it is with most working moms, I suppose. :)

2. What inspired you to write your first book in the series?

A sick fascination with Jack the Ripper. LOL! That’s the honest truth. I’ve always had an unpleasant fascination with serious killers. Even got my degree in Sociology with a focus on deviant behavior where I learned how to profile and all kinds of other cool stuff. You should see some of my old text books. Okay so you start with that and then a long-time love of historical romance and well, the two were bound to meet at some point. I’ve been killing people in my books for years (for those of you who read my Legend Hunters series, you know I left quite the body trail) so to tackle the baddie of the bads, was too tempting to pass up. Then more than that I had this character, Mia Danvers, the blind heroine from book 1 that just wouldn’t let me go.

3. Did you have it all planned out before hand with heroes and heroines for this series or did they just suddenly ended up being the one? (example: for Drew and Anna, I did not see that coming)

I have it all planned out. With the exception of the secondary romance in Anna Jacobs – that one surprised me a bit. But I have the couples lined up for book 3 too (not yet contracted so nothing definite on the horizon). With these kinds of books where you have such plot-heavy storylines, I really have to do a considerable amount of plotting. That doesn’t mean I figure it all out before I write, stuff changes and I come up with new ideas sometimes on my 3rd draft. But I do a lot of planning ahead of time.

4. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in writing Drew and Anna’s story?

I suppose it was the types of forensics they had in that time period. Autopsies and the like seem like such a modern advancement, but there are official reports on all of Jack the Ripper’s victims. I took that info and sort of ran with it with my storyline.

5. What was the hardest part of writing The Temptations of Anna Jacobs?

I’d say dealing with Drew’s struggles with alcohol. They didn’t really discuss addictions the way we do today so to have to deal with his cravings and whatnot and keep things historically accurate was difficult. I also wanted to be realistic with his struggles without taking all the romance out of the situation. :)

6. Were there any challenges (research, literary, psychological, and logistical) in bringing it to life?

In order to write the scenes where Drew is familiarizing himself with the Ripper’s previous murders, I read through all of that stuff, looked at the pictures and well, it’s hard not to get disturbed when you’re in Jack the Ripper’s world to that extent. I creeped myself out on more than one occasion writing.

7. How much of the book is realistic? (character personalities, history, life experiences, etc…)

There’s a lot of real history in all of my books, but I’m also very aware that I write fiction so I don’t sacrifice story for the sake of getting something 100% accurate.

8. If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

Always. I can’t name anything specific because once I’m done with all the passes for a book, I try not to look at them again. I’m terrified of finding stuff that I hate, stuff I’d want to change, etc. Books are never done, never perfect enough, but at some point you just have to finish and turn things in. So it’s as good as I could write it and I hope readers love it. I’m really proud of this series and these books, they’ve been incredibly challenging and finishing books that are difficult, well, there’s a certain amount of gratification that I get from that.

9. Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

I try not to do messages as I think writers can be a bit too heavy handed with them. My job as a writer is to create characters that are compelling and put them in a story that readers fall into. I think overall my message is always that love can conquer anything.

10. Does the past two characters from the first book make an appearance?

Yes, you’ll see Mia and Alex again in this book.

11. Last and for most, Who is the killer? Will we get to find out who he is in this story? And can this be read as a standalone?

Yes, this book can be read as a stand-alone. And no, I won’t tell you who the killer is. :) At least not yet.

Oh and do share a bit about The Temptations of Anna Jacobs which released April 15, 2014!!!

Here’s a small snippet from the Prologue:

Andrew Foster sat in what he fondly referred to as “the hole” and waited. It was all he could do. Sit, wait and listen. The other inmates fought and wailed and hurled curses at one another. It was a wretched existence.

The metal gates a few cells down from his opened and then closed with a heavy slam, and he heard voices. It was dark in his pit; although torches spit and sparked on the walls outside his bars, they offered no real solace from the black surrounding him. After all those years of heavy drinking, it would have been easier if he had finished the job and drunk himself to death. It would have at least saved him from this wretched fate.

Of course it was the damn drink that had put him here in the first place and made him feel so piss-poor. The retching had stopped, but he still suffered from the tremors.

Footsteps sounded and then his own gate rattled.

Thank you so much for visiting the reading room Robyn and letting me fangirl while interviewing you~ I cannot wait to see what you have plan for us next!

My pleasure. Feel free to fangirl in my direction anytime you want!


Giveaway Time!!!

During the tour Robyn will be gifting a Victorian Necklace and a $25 Gift Card (Amazon or Barnes & Noble) to 1 lucky follower!!!

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh oh my gosh Oh my gosh!!!I’ve been waiting for this book ever since I finished the first book and waited even more through all of her other releases for Entangled and….. Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s finally here!!!So, we left off at the end of the previous book with no murderer. But we got a glimpse of who it was. Well, sort of. The murderer is able to move among the ton and the noble with ease~ So that’s super chilling.

And as we all know, Drew is the brother that was accused of the murders!

But of course, why is he the hero in this book if he was sent to accused to be sent to the gallows? Maybe because he’s the brother of Alex, the Eighth Duke of Carrington, the previous hero. And of course because he was sent free on a mission by Investigator Simon Jacobs! Whom we found, because of his actions was shipped off the somewhere in Scotland.
So Drew is set free on a mission to find this killer knowing full well that everyone will be against him, thinking him as the killer. More the better to use that as his cover to figure out who’s framing him!

But of course troubles comes his way and trouble comes in the form of Anna Jacobs, Simon’s sister!
She believes him not the killer, but something much more, a drunkard arrogant prig! But very smoldering sexy. And it was his fault for getting her brother sent off to who knows where in Scotland to be punished for not catching the “Ripper”!

Of course things get hectic and their attraction to each other is fast and steamy! But then the killings is always there and once again throwing Anna and Jacobs together to solve the case.

Both of them are super sweet together and I just couldn’t kept from smiling. Sure they bantered but it was super fun to watch and learn that both of them didn’t judge each other nor care much for what society had termed them.

Sure Drew was dumb enough to get pinned for the murder but he’s turning around and trying to get his life on track. Most definitely his drinking which I was super happy that he was coming to terms that he had a drinking problem. And I loved that he cared about what Anna thought and how she saw things so they made for a very fun couple to follow through this dark and thrill seeking ride.

One thing I had troubles with was the title that Anna kept referring to Drew. Lord Carrington. Shouldn’t Lord Carrington be referred to his brother the “Duke of Carrington”? That really bothered me sadly. But I do have an advanced copy so hopefully it was caught and edited.

But I super loved this and was hooked right from….well, ever since I finished the first book so I’m biased! LOL

But I really do recommend this and I hope you get ready for the last book in this thrilling ride for when we finally capture the Ripper!!!

(Secret Wishes #3)

Playing it safe never felt so risky.

Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…

As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…

As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

Kissing the Maid of Honor      Her Accidental Boyfriend


I can’t believe it!!! I super love this story~ And I thought I super loved Luke and Sela and Shane and Kagan!

I have to say I was hooked right from the start and couldn’t put it down. I’ve read the others in this series and well, it just gets better every time!

I did have to run back to the past books to reread some of the past scenes just to refresh my memory and to see how these two met and interacted with each other and well, I’m so surprised that I didn’t see this coming! Well, maybe I was suspicious at first but that has been a while so now I’m just super happy to have this story to add to the Cascade town!

I love that these two have their own fears and wishes to over come. And I super loved that they each, during the process of trying to over come those fears, helped each other find their strength.

Yes, they have been attracted to each other from the gecko but because of their own…. I wouldn’t say insecurities because both of these characters, Troy and Erin are super sexy, so because of their fears of being heart broken, they didn’t hook up right away, I’ll say. But it was super great seeing them together and bantering and having a great time. Even the lusting was enjoyable~

You see, the both of them are super family oriented so being there for and having family around is really important to them, but then they’re both super closed off too about their life and struggles. Secrets and fears being apart of that so it was super difficult to let people in.

I really connect with the both of these. Not that I had been through the same things but that I myself aren’t so warm on opening and letting people in so it really connected to me. Maybe I should make a wish list of suitable boyfriend and find myself a wingman?? Hea hea hea~

But as they went through the process of finding Erin a boyfriend and Erin helping Troy fight is own fears, they begin to see each other in a different light of how everyone around them sees or assumes them to be. And as they start to know each other it gets harder to deny their attraction.

I super love how these two always seem to know something about the other before doing something. Like Troy knowing how Erin is ticklish because at one point he had to save her hand from bleeding to death and she couldn’t keep still as he stitched it back up. Or that Erin knows how Troy would react to certain things just by observing and watching and waiting for him to open up to her.

I just really like how these two get along and how perfect they are together. Opposites attract and these two are definitely opposites with secrets, wishes, and a past that got them that way, so it was super amazing to see them both see that of each other and then opening up about those pasts.

I can’t wait to see we get next!

Pub. Date: April 14, 2014

Salem, Colonial

The moment the stranger’s dark eyes meet hers, Anne Scudder’s world is immediately overthrown by chaos. That single flare of desire is immediate, driving away all notions of propriety. Instead, Anne is consumed with sinful thoughts—ones that no unmarried girl should ever have for a man who isn’t her husband…

But Josiah Cromwell is no stranger.

It’s been six years since Josiah stole kisses from Anne, his best friend’s younger sister. Six years since Josiah left after his best friend’s death, burdened by the knowledge that he was responsible for destroying Anne’s family. Now he’s returned to claim the woman he can’t live without. But even as their desire threatens to consume them both—body and soul—the dark workings of suspicion and witchcraft are afoot.

Because in Salem, too much passion can lead a woman to ruin… and condemned to death.

He has to convince his father—and his company’s board—that he’s ready to settle down if he wants a promotion. But convincing Sabrina to be his fake girlfriend turns out to be the easiest part. What he didn’t count on was their intense attraction and how easily their lie would escalate. Sabrina’s still hung up on her ex, and Jack will never settle down. But fate has other ideas…

She’s his best friend’s sister, but he’s ready to break all the rules…

Country veterinarian Celia Gamble is in trouble. A misunderstanding from her past is rearing its ugly head and the only person she can turn to is Jonah Clarke—her family’s lawyer and, as it turns out, her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. She always wanted Jonah to see her as a bona fide woman, but as a woman who’s being blackmailed for seducing a married man? Not on her life.

Jonah is happy to help Little CeeCee Gamble, if only she’d come clean about why she’s being blackmailed. But with his best friend Zach’s wedding on the horizon, and Zach’s fashionista fiancée Desiree giving CeeCee a makeover, the little duckling Jonah remembers is turning into a definite swan. And the unwritten law on sisters is clear—hands off. Jonah must resist or lose the only true family he’s ever known.
