Author Lashell Collins

Genre: Romantic Suspense

New Release – September 20, 2015




Synopsis

The Kelly Family is back, and this time they must save one of their own!

Despite all the sibling rivalry over the years, the Kelly boys are tight. Everyone knows that. Even though on the surface they couldn’t be more different. Sweet, sexy Ethan is the fun-loving, gentle soul, while his older brother, Storm, is the hot-as-sin, bad-boy, panty-melting Dom. And though they’re both sworn to uphold the law as members of the Eastwood Police Department, their private lives are as wickedly divergent as the two amazingly beautiful women who share their beds. But when Ethan gets himself into a world of trouble on the job, it’s up to Storm to get to the truth and clear his little brother’s good name.

The Smoking Gun features two of your favorite Kelly Family couples, Storm and Nina, and Ethan and Heather, all in one book

Excerpt

He hated this case. One look at that poor, battered and emotionally broken young woman and Storm Kelly knew that he hated this case with a passion. Never mind the fact that he had spent nearly two months spinning his wheels on this one, on top of his already heavy case load. That wasn’t it. Storm never minded hard work. What he did mind though was chasing shadows and ghosts, and for some reason, whoever was behind this particular crime spree seemed to have the amazing ability to elude all of his efforts to find them. But even that wasn’t the issue tonight.

No. The problem tonight was that this case had just taken a vile turn that Storm couldn’t stomach. He was all for dispensing a measure of pain along with the pleasure, but there was a huge difference between that and what these dirtbags had done to that girl. She couldn’t have been much older than twenty, maybe twenty-two. His blood boiled as he watched the paramedics finally getting her loaded onto the gurney. Rape made him sick. Women were such exquisite creatures – they were meant to be cherished and protected. Fucked beyond all senses, to be sure, but cherished and protected at all costs.

“Though she may take pain well, and may even have a tough attitude, inside she is much more delicate than you could ever imagine. So yes, fuck her hard, but make sure you love her tenderly.”

The voice of his former mentor echoed in his head as he thought about the differences between inflicting pain within the confines of discipline and safe consensual play, and inflicting pain for the sheer sake of brutality and cruelty. The contrasts were staggering, and those who refused to see that — those who condemned the lifestyle as domestic violence and demeaning toward women — they simply didn’t understand. But that was neither here nor there, and right now he had a case to concentrate on. He watched until the ambulance pulled away from the curb, lights and sirens blaring as they sped off toward the hospital. Then he turned his attention back to the scene inside the house. It looked eerily similar to all the others.

Lashell Collins spent the last twenty years of her life working in Veterinary Hospitals and Garden Centers. But whether she was surrounded by the adorable puppies and kittens she helped care for, or by the beautiful flowers, trees and shrubs, she constantly pursued her favorite pastime – reading romance novels and imagining herself as the heroine in each and every one of them. She began writing as a way to work through her grief after the loss of a few people who were special to her, and she found it to be cathartic, so she kept at it. She self-published her first novel in 2013. Since then, Lashell has self-published ten titles across two series – the Pierced Trilogy (romantic suspense), and the Jagged Ivory Series (contemporary romance) – and is hard at work on another two series for this year. All of Lashell’s stories are full of heart and romance, with smart dialogue and spicy sex scenes. 

When she’s not writing, Lashell enjoys reading, shopping, eating Chinese food, and riding on the back of her husband’s Harley-Davidson. She loves watching General Hospital and Grimm. She is a huge music fan and is completely obsessed with Slash. Lashell is a member of the Romance Writers of America. Drop her a line; she loves to hear from readers.

Review:

If you have read about all of the Kelly clan then you know what their story is. This book is told from all their POV and more. Each member has issues but it's up to all of them to step up and help one another out. Murder, lies, and mayhem is what this is and it will keep you on your toes through the entire book. Storm was always my favorite and I'm glad I got to read more about him and his relationship. When a case hits to close to home can any of them survive? Just remember when reading this book it's about the story, the love story of each and every member of the Kelly family and their sacrifices as police officers.

Excerpt


Hunter brought the cold glass bottle to my lips, and I closed my eyes to better appreciate the flavor.

“Mmmmm.” Hints of caramel, a touch of cinnamon, and was that…nutmeg? I licked my lips. “Tastes like autumn.”

“Next,” Hunter said softly. There was a clink as he set down the bottle, and another as he picked the second one up. Then that cool glass was against my warm mouth again, and I shivered as I felt his breath ghost against the back of my neck. I could practically feel the heart radiating off his body behind me. A drop of condensation slipped down the neck of the bottle, rolling down the fevered skin of my neck.

Oh, right, the beer. I took a gulp, hoping the cool liquid would calm my disordered thoughts. No such luck—but it was delicious, strongly hoppy this time, notes of lime and orange and vanilla, with a peppery finish. “Damn, that’s good. It’s like spring!”

“I’m glad you like it,” Hunter murmured. His arm encircled my waist—no, he was just reaching for another bottle, no, that was his other hand, this one was definitely resting on my waist, lightly, just above my hipbone.

I didn’t dare open my eyes, for fear I would find I was only dreaming.

“Another?” Hunter invited.

“Yes please.” My voice was a whisper, hoarse with desire I hoped he couldn’t hear.

And there it came, his gentle hands guiding it to my mouth, the smooth glass with its beads of moisture kissing my skin, and that that ambrosia sliding slowly down my throat: brown sugar and anise and a hint of…chocolate.

“Ooooooh,” I moaned in appreciation. I licked my lips.

And heard a sharp intake of breath from Hunter. “You like that?” he whispered.

“So much,” I replied, feeling the heat in my body gather itself tight and low.

Even with my eyes closed I was vividly aware of how close he was standing to me; I could smell him, hear each breath he took. His hand on my waist seemed to grip a fraction tighter, wrinkling the fabric of my dress—the hand holding the bottle seemed to tremble slightly, I could feel his breath ruffling my hair as he bent closer, those warm lips only inches from—

My eyes burst open and I almost leapt away from him. We didn’t have time for sexual tension! That was what had gotten us into trouble in the first place. My mind fluttered rapidly over possible topics of redirection.

It was difficult. It mostly wanted to think of Hunter shirtless.

Maybe pantsless too.

Yeah….definitely pantsless.

REVIEW

Evan's life has not always been so cut and dry he knows computers and he's a genius, but just because of that his life has sucked monkyballs. LOL Paige has always had a crush on Evan but neither of them have ever met. What turns out to be a one night stand leaves them both reeling with the reality that there is more to life than just sex. When disaster strikes Paige's company she knows she has to hire the best security around on top of trying to find out who is destroy her from the inside out. Evan and Paige's adventures start and neither of them know the ending. What Evan knows is that Paige will be his whether she wants to or not, but what Evan doesn't know is that he has always been hers. Find out who is behind the sabotage and if Evan and Paige can put aside their personal pain for one another to protect her life.

5 Super intense Stars!!

Once again I was blown away with Anne Conley and her ability to keep me guessing throughout the entire book.
On the day of a huge Corporate Takeover, Paige decides to to go out and celebrate and let herself go.... Even for JUST one night.. 
She never imagined running into the man she has idolized from her youth. One night is all she wants, but the stars and other evils have other plans and she much reach out when someone is out to destroy her and her company.

Evan was a prodigy in AI until people wanted to use it for the unintended. He goes off the Grid until he is saved by the owners of Pierce Securities and is hired to be their IT genius. He has a hot one night with "Sandra" and she disappears before he wakes up..... 6 months later the firm is hired to help uncover someone infiltrating an online RPG (role playing game) 
Evan gets a surprise when he meets the owner of PSL on his first day and it's an all out battle to find the culprit and try to fight the chemistry they both feel.

I was Totally on the edge of my seat the entire book. You get sucked in and are taken through every emotion till the very end!! Excellent book.. Bring on the next One!!!

LOCH Release Day Blitz

Title: Loch (The Powers That Be #3)
Author: Harper Bentley
Release Date: Sept 30, 2015
Find on Goodreads
Loch Powers was the hottest guy I’d ever seen in my entire life.

And I hated him with every fiber of my being.

I'd practically known him since birth. Heck, we’d literally shared a crib as babies at his mom’s daycare.

Then I’d crushed on him hard when we hit middle school but he wouldn’t give geeky, glasses-wearing me the time of day. When his mom made him take me to the sixth grade dance, he’d humiliated me and I vowed to never talk to him again.

The next year when my family moved away, I told myself that if I never saw him again it’d be too soon.

Now I’m back and attending the same college, but I’m no longer the skinny, ugly girl who was so infatuated with him. And I’m so over him it’s not even funny.

But now that I’m no longer the ugly duckling, he’s set his sights on me, and I’m just not sure what to do with that.

Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 22 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

After traveling the nation in her younger years as a military brat, having lived in Alaska, Washington State and California, she now resides in Oklahoma with her teenage daughter, two dogs and one cat, happily writing stories that she hopes her readers will enjoy.

Review:

Simone just that name alone you think of something beautiful and erotic. Simone is strong and an amazing person inside and out. However when the one person she thought she could trust and love destroyed her at a young age she never thought she would have to see him again. Loch what a douchecanoe he is and he thinks every women in town wants him. Well reality check is about to hit big time and it will be hilarious. Simone has moved back to her home town and is now face-to-face with the one person who tore her apart. But what she doesn't know is that he has never stopped thinking about her. It started off as revenge, turned into heartache, and then forgiveness. But how can two people who have known one another since diapers come together to forget the past. It's one thing to forgive and an entirely different to forget. Both of them have to sort out their feeling, but I will say by the end of this book I fell in love with Loch. Enjoy this story of strength, weakness, and forgiveness not to mention love.

The Seven have a code: find and protect Judgment Day (a weapon of mass destruction that poses as a harmless necklace) and the ones who possess it at all costs; and never, under any circumstances, divulge information about ourselves.

I have always abided by this code. Until Serena Callahan, a sassy, no nonsense female, found the damn choker, and now I’m the one being choked by my own emotions. Ever since the day she entered my life that code has meant nothing to me. And for the life of me I can’t figure out why I’m allowing a damn woman to lead me around by her slender finger. The rules have changed and she’s calling all the shots only she doesn’t know it. But if we can’t find the necklace soon, none of it will matter anyway.

My name is Sabin and I am the commander of The Seven.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR



 One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not)company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had ├╝ber quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head.Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss, and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author. Her books include the
 following: Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge and Kissing Fire (The Edge Series); The Guardians of Vesturon Series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent, and Beginnings); Dark Waltz, Death Waltz, Tragically Flawed (Tragic 1), Tragic Desires(Tragic 2), Exquisite Betrayal, Dirty Nights; and lastlyFreeing Her, Freeing Him, and Kestrelall part of the Hart Brothers Series.

Other than being in love with writing about love, she loves chocolate, ice cream, and coffee and is
 positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.
