Hard Ride (Part 1) by Opal Carew
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin (June 30, 2015)
Series: Ready to Ride, 3
Genre: Contemporary Erotica

Maggie never expected to find herself trapped in an alley facing a band of rough bikers. And she certainly didn't expected to see him again…

Shock is a biker with a mysterious past. The son of a wealthy billionaire, he inherited it all at a young age. But for Shock, wealth was a shackle, and all he wants is to break free on the open road. With no worries, no responsibilities, just him, his gang, and his bike. What more could a man want?

That is until he encounters an old flame in a dark alley. Seeing Maggie again sends him spiraling. Still as beautiful as ever, he's enraged that sweet, funny Maggie is alone and penniless with on one to protect her. But more than that, he's concerned about the risks she seems to take. In order to keep her safe and finally have her for himself, he makes a sensual deal: his help for her body. But will Maggie be able to let her inhibitions go and fall for the hard rider?

Kame's Pick:

Locked in Stone by Tory Michaels
Publisher: Entangled: Covet (February 23, 2015)
Genre: Paranormal Romance

A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint…

Her enemy is her only hope...

Rose Johnson's adoptive mother was murdered, and Rose is next. She may be the last gargoyle in the world—the last being who stands between this world and the evils of Otherworld. In order to keep her existence a continued secret, Rose needs to find the stone that holds her adoptive mother's soul. Which means enlisting the help of her enemies the Sentinels...

Sentinel Cal Levesque never forgave himself for failing Rose's family years ago. Seeing Rose alive is shock enough, until the stunningly beautiful gargoyle attacks him upon sight. As they strike an uneasy peace—and unexpected and escalating attraction—Cal knows he'll have to tell Rose who really betrayed her family. And with Rose's life in greater danger than ever, Cal has a chance to make up for the long he doesn't fall in love.

Kame: I do not read Sci-Fi – I can’t get my brain around it – but this cover is beautiful – love the shades of black and gray, and well then there is that chest

Pat's Pick:

Lachlan's Revenge by R.L. Syme

Genre: Historical Romance

They took his family, they took his freedom... but he's back to reclaim it all...

He managed to take back his ancestral home and restore his son's inheritance. But the English threat has never truly abated. According to his nephew, invasion is immanent. Tired of being subject to the whims of the English, Lachlan will take control of his own destiny. By any means necessary. 

Lady Evangeline, daughter of an invading English earl, has been raised to privilege and the expectation of an advantageous foreign marriage. She is as eager to escape her father's machinations as Lachlan is eager to kidnap her, though the wilds of the Scottish Highlands could be a tad more welcoming.The secret she holds could have deadly consequences--not only for Lachlan, but for his entire clan, not to mention the proud English lady and her retinue. But this is one secret she cannot wait to spill...

The_Book_Queen said...

Hehe -- sounds like something I'd say. :D

Sophia Rose said...

Well ladies, you've presented some really good candidates for lustworthy-ness. I have to say Kame's atmospheric shades of black and gray really grab me (and the blurb grabs me too) though who can resist a tattooed man and a highlander?

Red Iza said...

Veeery nice choice for the week, thanks ladies, you're brightening my day :)

The_Book_Queen said...

TRUTH. It's almost impossible to pick. :)

The_Book_Queen said...

Happy to do so! :D
