Synopsis: A girl who has everything. A guy who has everything to lose.

Some things can’t be…

RUSHED

Alexis

Like there has ever been any doubt which sorority my family expects me to pledge. I’m a third-generation legacy. On the first day of rush, I realize I’m in trouble. I’m not like the other girls in the house. But as long as my parents control my college funds, resisting is futile. Until Zach, the live-in houseboy, who’s quite possibly the hottest guy I will ever meet, serves me a cupcake and flashes me a sympathetic look. With one enigmatic smile, he flips my heart and my world upside down. My parents will cut me off if they even suspect I’m interested in a house guy. But I can’t stay away from him. And so I pledge the house for all the wrong reasons.

Zach

Living in a sorority? I get flipped a load of crap about being a live-in servant, the help. Easy access to the hottest girls on campus? Not with the unbreakable rule—get caught with one of the girls and you’re fired. Immediately. Lose this job and I can’t afford college. I sure as hell can’t ask my parents for help. They wish I’d never been born. Considering what I did, I don’t blame them. I’ve learned to think of the girls like sisters. Until Alexis pledges the house. Now sister is the last thing on my mind.

The pursuit of peace is not always pacific.

Vincent Mallory Edgerton had always been an efficient FREGG operative. It was his family legacy and his pride. He had always loved his job, even when he had to leave everything behind for his safety and become Josh Heinz.

Every love story has a beginning.

Sémya Slotin had been coasting through life solving one mystery after another. While in Hawaii, her young protégée disappeared. When Sémya met Josh Heinz, her mind kept telling her to stay away from the handsome stranger with the hypnotic light brown eyes but she found herself inexplicably drawn to him. He awakened something in her and she was unable to resist him. It never happened to her before. Who was that man?

In Hawaii, Vincent had to work covertly with the sexy bold sleuth. Sémya’s beauty and intellect completely enthralled him, but his passion and growing love for her also changed him. There was nothing he wouldn’t do to finally win her trust and keep her safe, causing him to unleash events that would shape the rest of their lives. From the moment their gazes locked, Sémya and Vincent sealed their fate.

Note: This book is part of the series and is not a standalone. You might be able

to enjoy without reading Bird of Prey and The Plot Thickens first BUT I really advise to read Polliannah Got Married! first.

EXCERPT-

He patiently waited for Sémya to catch up with him. He could see her villa from where he was standing but they had to turn left and he wasn’t supposed to know that. The temperature had dropped and she put on thin blouse. Her hair was flowing in the wind. Without thinking he took her hand but let her lead the way. “So you didn’t answer me. Why do you need a driver?”

Sémya looked at their hands entwined and caressed his with her fingers. The gesture aroused him. “I failed the driving test about thirty times and in more than one country,” she mumbled back, her cheeks were a little flushed by the revelation. “I cannot drive.” She bit her lower lip.

Oh… he could write songs about her beautiful lips. “You were asking about my story earlier,” he said still looking at her lips. “My parents died when I was very young and I’ve been raising myself ever since.”

Sémya looked at him and stopped in front of her villa, “Why the ink?” She gently stroked his arm with her free hand.

 He leaned down. Please don’t be another assassin. “Why not?” She looked into his eyes then his mouth, back to his eyes again. They both startled when the small gate beeped and opened. She walked inside her property without breaking eye contact. “Sémya, what a big villa you have,” he said, following her.

Sémya smiled, guiding him toward the pool, “All the better to walk around, my child.”

He pulled her against him as they were standing next to the bar. “Sémya, what beautiful, enticing lips you have.” She felt so good against him. He very slowly bent his head down and passed his tongue across her lips. “Sémya, what delicious lips you have,” he moaned. He had been thinking about doing this for two whole days. She tasted just like he imagined her to or even better. He kissed the corner of her mouth while caressing her jaw and her neck. Her skin was so soft, soft caramel toffee. Sémya was moaning against him and her hands found his hair. He was about to lose control, “You are so beautiful,” he said against her lips as she massaged his scalp. They were both trembling and they hadn’t even kissed yet.  He ran his hands on her shoulders and slowly down to her back before groping her ass and pressing her against his erection. She let the sexiest shriek out and he covered it with his mouth.

Fuck, that’s a kiss… the moment their lips touched they both moaned and sighed. Sémya brought him even closer, teasing him with her tongue and Vincent deepened the kiss. He tasted, he nibbled, and he teased back. His hands were stroking her bare back and he removed her blouse. “You taste wonderful, Heinz,” Sémya moaned when they came up for air. She stood on her tiptoes and kissed his neck. She hungrily removed his shirt and backed away until she hit the bar, “Show me,” she groaned, mischief and lust in her eyes.

Vincent shook his head removed her bikini top instead revealing her small round breasts. He freed her from her pants and she stood in front of him in her back garden wearing only sexy black boxer shorts. She might just be the sexiest woman he had ever seen, “My God Sémya, you take my breath away.” He kissed her again before she had a chance to say something. She clung to him and he set her on the bar, placing himself between her legs. He never wanted a woman more than he wanted Sémya Slotin. He left her wonderful mouth for her breasts, sucking them softly first then with all the passion he felt erupting inside him. He heard her moans and that excited him so much, he lowered his pants and found one of condoms Clyde gave him. This was insane; so unlike him, having sex like this in the open. But he couldn’t wait… He brought his hard shaft against her and groaned against her breast, licking the valley between them.

“Oh yes,” Sémya groaned even louder, pushing herself forward. She unceremoniously removed her boxer and let him plunge into her. “Fuck yes…”

“Fuck yes…” Vincent repeated. She was warm and tight around him. He opened her legs even more and got even deeper, “Sémya,” he breathed in her ear and she shivered in his arms. He started to pound her frantically. He had no control over any of this, he was feeling too much, too fast. Each stroke drove him closer to utter madness. Sémya’s head was resting on his shoulder, kissing, nibbling, biting him, matching each of his strokes, and asking him to go faster, deeper. He lifted her up from the bar and wrapped her legs around his hips, bringing her so close to him, Vincent felt like they melted together. And then it happened… He felt and heard her release while his came crashing down and almost knocked him down.  “God, Sémya,” he babbled, trying to recover from what he had just experienced.

“I second that,” Sémya said, searching and finding his mouth.

Title- Heart of War

Series- Lady & Knight Chronicles #1

By- C.L. Foster & E.R. Rada

Publication Date- June 6th, 2014

Genre-  Historical Romance

image

The Hundred Years War rages around Adalira Mortimer’s life and country, but she is not what is expected of a Lady; instead of dresses and tea, she dreams about weapons and war. Bastian Kyros is not typical royalty. Being a warrior is in his blood, not paperwork and peace-keeping. Tradition drives their families. She is expected to don her manners and win a worthy husband, and he is expected to drop his sword and do what’s right for the sake of his family’s name, land, and future. Their chance meeting at the party of the season may offer them both the chance to find what they desire. Brought together by their longing for battle, their greatest fight may be in winning over their families and conquering their own pride. A lull in battle does not mean there is peace. The greatest of wars are fought in the heart. image “Hello, beautiful Adalira,” she heard softly from behind her. The voice husked itself across the back of her neck sending chills down her spine. She spun around and shoved the masked man standing behind her. “I beg your pardon, sir, but you are far too close to my person.” “Not nearly as close as I’d like to be,” he responded in the same hushed, husky tone while taking a step closer to her to compensate for the shove. “You definitely do not hit like a woman. I love that about you.” Beneath his royal blue and gold ribbon embellished mask, she saw a familiar smirk. “I don’t speak with men I don’t know in dark corners of fancy parties. So if you will excuse me -” “Very well, then speak to me in the center of a very well-lit dance floor,” he said as he took her hand and dragged her toward the other dancers. His perfectly tailored royal tunic and gold pants matched his mask beautifully and made his body look as if it were carved from a marble slab. She pulled her hand away from his and stepped back toward the column. “Normally, I would agree, since you asked so nicely, but I’ve come down with a terrible headache just this instant.” Her sarcasm and tone were unmistakable. He stepped closer to her than before. If she looked up even a fraction of an inch, his lips would meet hers. “Do you not know how to dance or are you just scared to dance with me?” “Sir, I don’t even know you and have no interest in dancing with you.” She turned her head to ignore his blatant challenge. He clutched his chest softly as he took a small step back. “You wound me, miss. And I was thinking that you would accept any challenge after how you fought the other day.” He tilted the mask down slightly so she could see his face. “Or are you afraid of me outside the training field?” “Ezra?” She stepped forward and punched him in the shoulder. “I thought you were a man.” His chuckle filled the corner they hid in. “I am a man, miss. I can show you if you like.” The lecherous glimmer in his eyes warned her not to accept his very real offer. “No, I meant, I thought you were some stranger attempting to woo the Prince’s daughter.” She flipped her hand indifferently at the mass of people flitting around the room. “Ah, yes. Well, I am a stranger for now and I am trying to woo the Prince’s daughter, so you weren’t wrong.” His smile was broad and beautiful. She rolled her eyes at him. “You have been properly warned by my father.” “I’ve still not unsheathed anything in your presence, miss. He has no need to worry… yet. Also, I was simply asking you to dance. Unless you have other activities we can accomplish in this dark corner? In that case, I am happy to keep you company.” “Oh dear, wipe that silly grin off of your face. I have no activities I am interested in doing with you at this, or any other, time.” “I can get you out of that very incredible dress and toss you a sword. Would that make you feel better?” “Yes. Well, no. Not now.” She sputtered through her answers. A fight was preferable, if she had a choice, but she promised her parents that she would be social at the party. “Fine. I will dance with you once so that my parents see me being social. Keep your hands to yourself. Don’t make me injure you.” “I wouldn’t dream of it, miss.” He bowed slightly to her and took her hand to lead her to the dance floor properly this time. image Goodreads- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20528822-heart-of-war Kindle- http://www.amazon.com/Heart-Lady-Knight-Chronicles-Book-ebook/dp/B00KTE0B2Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1404576795&sr=8-2&keywords=Heart+of+War Smashwords- http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/446888 Nook- http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/heart-of-war-cl-foster/1119697179?ean=2940046002867 Kobo- http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/heart-of-war-3 iBooks- https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/heart-of-war/id888225761?mt=11 image This novel was a great read especially since it was co written and it flowed beautifully together to where you couldn’t even tell. The plot was well encased and flawless to give the readers an insight on where or what was happening in the story line and scenery.  While you were introduced to many characters,  the authors did not fail to make it entertaining to the audience and even had me laughing at some points.  I especially loved the letters that was written back and forth because it gave you more insight into the main characters (there were lots of letters). To me it helped to build the romance between the two. However,  lets not forget that the lady in question definitely has a strong mindset and I will have to say she was my favorite character. Great job to both of the authors and I look forward to reading more! image

Never one to conform, he embraces his nerdy/geek tendencies and is well known for creating new and interesting ways to do things (see: stubborn/the hard way). In doing things his own way, he has earned his way through life with plenty of battle scars, knowledge, and memories. image Goodreads- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7045026.E_R_Rada Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/ERRada72 Twitter- https://twitter.com/EricRayRada   image
