Mitch Knight

1. Loves a good challenge
2. Never turns his back on a dare
3. Loves to create nicknames
4. Nobody cooks better than him
5. Doesn’t believe in love.

When Parker Welsh sells Mitch Knight his organic restaurant, Willows, he not only gives Mitch ownership; but everything entangled with it. Including the annoying pastry chef who supplies the muffins and cupcakes.  

Hayley Roth-Welsh

1. Loves To-Do Lists and Five-Year Plans
2. Has her dream job of baking sweets
3. Always tries to make others happy
4. Never seems to succeed with her family
5. Is still a virgin, waiting for love.

Hayley played by her mother’s rules for the first eighteen years of her life, instead of heading to college as her family expected, she rebelled and opened a bakery, Pieces of Heaven.  Her family expects her to fail and head back to school and their wish may come true once Parker sells his restaurant to the handsome, arrogant Mitchel Knight. It’s either join forces with him or lose her dream.




Hayley
“I received the email. Now go and change,” Mitch barks, as he closes his phone.
I just emailed him my end of the year numbers and for the next two weeks he’ll come daily to observe and analyze what we need to take the next step—or so he says. I’m weary about his recommendations-no-I fear that he’ll say this is a lost cause.
“Change?” My forehead automatically becomes a frown. “You said wear comfortable clothes, these are my comfortable clothes.”
I point at my Nirvana T-shirt, then my shorts and finally my flat thong sandals.
“Should I switch my thongs for tennis shoes?”
“I really didn’t need to know that you’re wearing a thong, unless you’re willing to show me.”
I point at the shoes.
“Thong sandals, you, idiot.” Then I head for my satchel purse and walk to the door. “Ready.”
“You’re wearing a t-shirt of a band from last century, and… can you wear something less, Today is laundry day and these are the only clean items I found.”
“As I said, these are my comfy clothes. No, I won’t choose another outfit. Unless of course, we’re heading to have tea with the queen, then I’ll think about changing my attire. What’s the plan?”
“Tea with the queen, what does that mean?”
“Mom’s motto. Every morning, you need to dress as if you’re going to have tea with the queen.” I did it for eighteen years, even when she was out of the country with Dad but after I left her controlling grasp, I made sure to wear what I liked. “For Mom specifically it means wearing famous designer’s clothing with high heels and a gallon of her expensive perfume.”
“Can you wear something in between?”
“Yes, but I choose not to.” I respond with a sweetly tone, open the door and wait for him to follow so I can lock the door. “Are we leaving? Because as you know, my bed time is seven and we don’t have much left… unless you need a refresher on how to tell time.”
“You can be obnoxious, Miss Hayley Mae Roth-Welsh.” He heads outside.
“One of my charms.” I stick my tongue out before locking the door behind him.



AUTHOR Q&A:  

Tell us about your first book. What would readers find different about the first one and your most recent published work?  

First and most, Where Life Takes You is in one word, Drama, while Standing By has a fun, light hearted touch to it. I also want to think that the readers will find a degree of maturity on my writing from WLTY to Standing By. A growth so to speak. 

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

Definitely, always remember that everyone struggles in one way or another, and that even the most put together person can be a total mess on the inside.  

Does music play any type of role in your writing? 

It’s a huge part of my first drafts I like to listen mostly to Alternative-Indie music. Upbeat with angsty lyrics my favorite.

Who's behind the mysterious death of popular Blue Girl Roz whose body was first discovered by seemingly naive innocent Staci Atussi, the new girl at The Blue Room? What happened to Rita, Staci's friend who worked at the Blue Room? Is Terrence Blue, who wanted Staci to quit so she could be his exclusively, the one behind all these disappearances?

Who is Mr. X really and how is he connected to The Blue Room besides being one of the most elite patrons, and why can't Staci stop herself from seeing him only as a patron? As Staci falls further into the alluring fantasy world of The Blue Room and into love with both Terrence Blue and now Mr. X, she risks becoming the killer's next target but discovers there is far more to everyone and everything at The Blue Room.

When Danny Blue of the Never Knights inherited his playboy billionaire father's businesses and legacy, he didn't realized his father's pet project was the Blue Room, the most elite and secret club in the highest circle. He was happy to let his half-brother Terrence Blue run the club, but with Terrence's womanizing ways and carefree attitude when it came to everything, he wasn't sure if that was a good idea.


Terrence Blue wasn't sure that was a good idea as well because it would cramp his style as a former patron of the club, but when he spotted virginal Staci Atussi starting at The Blue Room, he had a change of heart. Not only was Staci Atussi a knockout without knowing it, but she was the challenge he had been craving.

For Staci Atussi, working at The Blue Room was her solution to a desperate situation, but as she became integrated into the world of The Blue Room and the mysteries surrounding its patrons and the sexy Blues, she wondered if she had traded in her desperation for something far more sinister.

HIS EVERY FANTASY (Sultry Summer Nights #2) by Delilah Devlin | Review



HIS EVERY FANTASY
(Sultry Summer Nights #2)

by Delilah Devlin


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18170499-his-every-fantasy?ac=1




A Sultry Summer Nights Novel
The last thing ex-SEAL Sergei Gun needs is a complication. As part of a powerful black-ops company, he's led an extraction team into the Mexican jungle to rescue two men who have been kidnapped. Everything has gone according to plan until Serge discovers a third hostage-an exquisitely beautiful woman with a secret haunting her stormy gray eyes . . . a woman who refuses to make this rescue easy. With no choice but to bring her back to the compound deep in the sultry, steamy Louisiana bayou, Serge vows to protect her, body and soul . . .

Kara Nichols never imagined that she'd capture the interest of a powerful man like Serge. Yet from the moment they met, she's fantasized about his strong hands caressing her naked skin, his musky scent lingering on her sheets. What began as a simple rescue mission ignites into a passionate affair. As Serge teaches her the tantalizing art of surrender, Kara finds herself more than willing to shed every last one of her inhibitions and submit to him fully. But the dark, dangerous forces that captured Kara aren't ready to let her go so easily . . .




 OK!  This book is excitement, thrills and mystery from the first word you read.  We are talking highly trained ex-SEALS working to protect citizens who have been kidnapped or threatened by terrorists or drug cartels. These men live up to their legend.  They are smart, well-trained, deadly fighting machines when they are called to protect.  They are also a family to each other in their team, willing to lay down their lives to protect each other.

Sergei is such a man.  As you have probably read in blurb, this mission started like any other mission, until the surprise of saving a female hostage was sprung on them in the middle of an extraction.  Unwilling to leave a woman in peril, he tells his team to scramble and flex in order to extract this new hostage.  The rest is a story passion, first loves, comradeship... and Oh, yes, BDSM initiation.

Kara Nichols is a virgin when she is saved by Sergei.  The unusual chemistry between them surpasses the appreciation a hostage feels for their savior.  There is respect and trust between, which combined with the undeniable attraction, prepares the way for a full on power transfer relationship you will not soon forget.

Brilliantly written, this story is more than an erotic romance.  The under currents of danger from the drug cartel, set the stage for a thrilling and passionate story.  I look forward to reading more stories about these ex-SEALS.  They all deserve to find one true love to come home to after these perilous missions.

 For fans of Sylvia Day and E. L. James, comes awarding-winning author Delilah Devilin's first book in her sensual eroitic romance Sultry Summer Nights series.

The moment Tilly Floret sees the sleek Bentley driving down Main Street, she knows trouble has arrived in her sleepy little town. A mysterious job posting keeps appearing at the diner where she works, and she can't resist applying. No matter that the entire town of Bayou Vert is whispering about the wealthy, powerful man behind it all and his scandalous return home. The moment his ice-blue eyes meet hers, he ignites an all-consuming desire she never imagined possible, one she can't deny.

Ex-navy SEAL Boone Benoit never thought he'd set foot in Louisiana again. As soon as Tilly starts her new job in his pleasure club, he senses a kindred soul. One who has carefully guarded secrets of her own-and a simmering hunger for the taboo rites of mastery and submission. The only difference is she doesn't yet know it. Now as Boone tutors Tilly in the tantalizing world of leather and lace, she will shed her every inhibition and surrender to him, body and soul.
