GOD OF WINE
Immortal Matchmakers, Inc #3
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Released Nov 25th, 2016


From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff…
Book #3 of the Immortal Matchmakers Inc. Series. (Standalone)


CAN ROCK-HARD ABS SAVE THE WORLD? HE SURE THINKS SO


Acan, the God of Wine and Intoxication, has been partying for over ten thousand years. And New Year’s Eve, when humans around the world succumb to his naturally occurring spike in powers, is his big night. Only this year, things are bit different.

A plague is sweeping the immortal community, and he’s turning downright evil. All those New Year’s bashes will turn into bloodbaths if he doesn’t stop it. Sadly, the only known cure is finding a mate, and he is a giant, rude, beer-bellied mess. Definitely not husband material.

But can a little gym-time and help from the pros at Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. turn him into a divine sex-machine? Absolutely!

So watch out, ladies! The God of Wine is lookin’ for love. And he has absolutely no clue what he’s doing. 


Forgetty picked up her cell and began dialing.

Who are you calling now?” he asked.
Jill, how the heck are you?” Forgetty said with a bland tone, speaking to his assistant. “We’ve got a situation.” Forgetty listened for a moment. “Nope, Belch did not superglue himself to the Empire State Building again.” She listened and then laughed. “Ouch. Yeah. I forgot about that rope burn accident. But his junk appears to be intact and enjoying its usual fresh air.”
Belch grumbled at Forgetty, knowing that she and Jill were discussing the time Cimil dared him to walk a tightrope over the Grand Canyon. Blindfolded. A very bad choice because when he slipped, he hadn’t been wearing any clothes and…well, his balls took the first hit. He then fell to his death. Luckily, however, when a deity’s body was destroyed, they were sent back into the cosmos, where they could return to the realm of the gods—if they weren’t currently banned—or return to the human realm with a new body. The whole process usually took a few days since the gods depended on sacred portals (aka cenotes, aka underground springs) in the Mexican jungle to rebuild them one molecule at a time—very low-tech, but tried and true. Still, ruining one’s human shell hurt like a sonofabitch.
Forgetty continued her conversation with Jill over the phone. “Sadly, this is a serious matter. Belch has got to find his forever someone or he’ll turn evil and be locked up. I’m putting you in charge of keeping him sober.” A moment passed. “Hello? Hello?” Forgetty pulled her cell from her ear. “I think she hung up on me.” Forgetty dialed again. “Voicemail! Can you believe her?”
Was going to fire her anyway. I think I’ve gone weeks without pants.” Oh well. Belch shrugged, feeling his throat dry out and hearing that frosty cold beer calling his name. “How about a beer to celebrate going on the wagon?”
No!” His sister shook her finger. “And so help me, Belch, if you touch one drop of alcohol, I’m going to—”
Forgetty’s cell beeped, and she took a peek. “Cimil is calling an emergency midnight meeting at her office.”
Wow. We’ve never had one of those before. Must be important.”
His sister gave him a look.
What?” he asked defensively.
You turning into a threat to humanity is important. And we just had an emergency meeting last week.”
We did? “You must’ve made me forget.”
I’ve never used my powers on you, brother.”
Really? Because he could barely remember the last ten thousand years.
She added, “It’s also against our laws to do so without permission.”
Then why’s it all a void?”
Uhhh…because you’ve been wasted for more millennia than I can count. But not like you’ve missed much. A few near misses with the apocalypse. Cimil got married to Roberto, the king of vampires, and had evil half-vampire, half-divine quadruplets, and…a bunch of the other gods got married. Even Votan has a son.”
The God of Death and War is a father? I definitely need to drink a keg. ASAP. “When did this happen?”
Over the last couple of years.”
Gods. He’d only been sober for two minutes and already realized how much he’d missed.
He looked at his sister and blinked hard. Whoa. That’s what she looks like?
Mistaking his expression for despair, Forgetty reached across the bar and squeezed his hand. “Do not worry, brother, we’ll figure this out.”
No. It’s not that.”
Then what?” she asked.
I always thought you had four eyes and two heads.”
Ha. Funny.”
Who said I was joking?” He really wasn’t.
All right. I need to finish getting everything ready for tonight’s party.”
Oh, is it ladies’ night? I love ladies’ night.” Just last week, he’d gone home with five women, who pleasured him all night long. That was the nice thing about being a deity—women found them irresistible. Their scent, their hypnotically sexy turquoise eyes, the divine energy wafting from their bodies. In his case, his very large cock was also a nice chick magnet. There was never a shortage of admirers. The only downside was that a god’s energy could kill a person—fry their brain—if the god didn’t make them wear a very special black jade to help absorb their potent powers. He personally had a lovely collection of black jade bracelets back home.
You mean the taco truck?
Oh yeah. Burned down my house. He’d have to go shopping tomorrow for a new house. Maybe I’ll go big this time and buy a bouncy castle.
Well, I’m ready to help welcome the women.” He rubbed his hands together.
You’re getting locked in the closet until I leave for the meeting,” said Forgetty.
It was only eleven in the morning. “No. I’m not.” He defiantly took a seat on the stool again.
She reached out and grabbed his arm. “Acan, listen to me. The party is over. And you need to grow up. Your reckless teen years are over.”
Grow up. Grow up? I’m the party god and this party ain’t ever gonna end!
Are you going to serve me or not?” he growled.
Not.”
Fine.” He rose from the barstool, his bare ass making a qwiiip! sound as it peeled off the vinyl cushion. “I’ll see you at Cimil’s office.”
Hey! Where are you going?” his sister yelled as he headed for the door.
To do what I do best!”
Belch! Dammit! No more partying!”
Screw that. If he had to find a mate, he wanted one who knew how to throw down and worshiped at the altar of wine like he did, not some teetotaler. Going to find myself a real woman. Fit for a god.

Book Club Thursday:Free Day December 2016


Hi Readers! Thank you for joining us here for Book Club Thursday. It's the holiday season and I can't believe how fast the year has gone. Thanks for joining my good friends and fellow bloggers at BCT as we bring you the last FREE DAY of 2016.
      It's the Christmas season so I wanted to read something Christmasy (I hope that's a word,lol) and what can be more warm and fuzzy than a romantic story featuring puppies and children? Well, in this case one puppy and one little girl. My pick-BORDER COLLIE CHRISTMAS by Nancy Warren. It is the first novella in a quartet of four short stories featuring the love story of Erin and Jared who meet at Christmas.
     

BORDER COLLIE CHRISTMAS
Author: Nancy Warren




When Erin Nash hears a baby crying outside her door on a cold December night, the baby she discovers is a lost puppy with a red, and very wet and dirty, Christmas bow still hanging around its neck. When she attempts to unite the dog with his owner, she meets Jared a man trying to raise a-five-year old daughter, Sadie, alone. Jared begins to rethink the wisdom of getting his daughter a puppy for Christmas. She’s already lost her mother, what if she lost the puppy as well? As Erin and Jared get to know each other, one small Border Collie with a big personality and no name, begins to unite two hurting people.


BORDER COLLIE CHRISTMAS is a sweet and heartwarming tale, perfect for a cozy evening curled up in a favorite chair with something warm to drink. It's the story of Erin and Jared, two people who have both experienced loss, brought together by a puppy.
     Erin makes jewelry and ignores Christmas. One night she discovers a cold and wet puppy crying outside her home. This brings her to find the puppies owner, a widower named Jared who bought the pup for his little girl.
     I bought this story because I wanted a sweet holiday read. Nancy Warren is a longtime favorite author and the description of the story called to me. The story brings two lonely people together at Christmas thru a cute puppy. It is a heartwarming tale as Erin, Jared and his little girl find a new beginning and a chance to heal and find love again. When I bought this, I didn't know that it was part of a four book set of stories  from a series called A Romance in Four Seasons and show how Erin and Jared's love story blossoms over four holidays thru the coming year. So while they have the promise of a new love at Christmas, there is more to their road until they find their happily ever after. I haven't read the other stories yet, but I plan to. The second story takes place at Valentine's day.

The next stories are:

Release Day Blitz: CHRISTMAS WITH AN ANGEL by Debbie Mason!




 CHRISTMAS WITH AN ANGEL: A Short Story
Author: Debbie Mason
Series: Harmony Harbor, #1.5
On Sale: December 6, 2016
Publisher: Forever Yours
eBook: $.99 USD



It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences—until one bad decision landed her in jail.

That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her—and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.



CHRISTMAS WITH AN ANGEL is a short and sweet novella which is the second story in Debbie Mason's new Harmony Harbor series. It takes place the day after MISTLETOE COTTAGE leaves off. This is Michael Gallagher and Shay's possible second chance at love.
     I must admit, I didn't care much for Michael originally, at least not when he was younger. He was rich and arrogant and cheated on his then girlfriend Sophie (and I really like Sophie.) with wild child,Shay. She's the girl from the wrong side of town. I can't go into the complexities of their past, you have to read that yourself. And now Sophie is with the man she should be with, Liam. And Michael is now unhappily engaged to a bridezilla Bethany and their wedding is on Christmas. At the final moment the wedding is called off and the bride is holding his dog hostage.
      Michael has changed over the years and is really a good guy. He and Shay are off to a rocky start but the embers are there. He knows that he has a lot to answer for and Shay has had it rough for too long. She has every right to wary of him, but he knows she has troubles and he wants to help her. Since this is a short story, it offers the promise that maybe things can work out for them in the future. I look forward to reading more about them in the future and other couples as well. I can't wait to read more in the deliciously heartwarming Harmony Harbor series.

Exciting New Read: TAKEN by Cynthia Eden- Tour with Review & Excerpt


The hunt for a serial killer just got very personal . . . 


TAKEN
LOST Series #5
Cynthia Eden
Releasing Nov 29th, 2016
Avon Books



In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s latest novel, the Last Option Search Team (LOST) returns— and for one agent, the hunt for a serial killer just got very personal . . . 


HE SWORE TO PROTECT HER . . .

Bailey Jones somehow survived her harrowing abduction by the infamous Death Angel. But while her physical scars have healed, she can’t stop wondering about a woman she helped to escape, who simply disappeared. When LOST agent Asher Young is assigned to her case, Bailey instantly feels an attraction to the intense ex-SEAL who seems to be carrying dark secrets of his own.

BUT KEEPING HIS PROMISE . . .

Asher can’t afford to let his growing feelings for Bailey distract him from his job. Only she can soothe his horrific nightmares, but the last thing he wants is for the demons from his past to ever hurt her. Bailey has gotten past his guard, and the emotions he feels for her—they’re as dark and dangerous as the past he doesn’t want to face.

COULD COST BOTH THEIR LIVES

When corpses begin surfacing—all marked with the same tattoo depicting the Death Angel’s calling card—Asher must race to stop a twisted killer who wants nothing more than to claim his next prize: Bailey . . . 



Cynthia Eden is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and TAKEN is another great addition to the "Lost" series. The story is dark and intense and it grabs your attention with a kick-ass heroine and the broken hero who believes in her.
     Bailey is the only survivor of a serial killer and suffers from PTSD. One of her main problems is that she can't get anyone to believe that there was another woman there the night she was rescued. Not her therapist and not law enforcement. Knowing that she will never move forward knowing that she had helped the other woman escape that night, she takes matters into her own hands and goes to the LOST organization for help. Asher is assigned to the case and from the start, he feels that Bailey is being truthful. He has some baggage that he deals with and feels a kindred spirit with her.
     The story takes off after Asher comes to town and that worries someone. Soon, Bailey's life is in danger again, but this time she has someone who believes. When Asher sometimes wants to investigate on his own, Bailey lets him know that she is no hothouse flower and she going to be part of the investigation. She needs to find that woman especially since she sometimes doubts her own sanity. Sparks fly between them and as they spend more time together, they help each other heal. 
     I thought the story was exciting and there were lots of twists and turns. You had no idea if the killer was still around or if he was a copycat. I had a hard time trying to figure out who the bad guy was and I was glad that law enforcement began to take Bailey seriously, especially since her life was still in danger. I also cared for Asher and Bailey and was touched by how together they found the person who soothed and restored their once broken souls. I love this series and look forward to another. What an intense read!


     “Bailey Jones . . .” Asher said her name softly, as if tasting it on his tongue. “There are a few things you should know about me before we begin.”
     There are things you should know about me, too. But I’m not going to tell you . . . or you won’t help me.
     “First, you don’t have to fear me. Part of my job at LOST—well, let’s just say Gabe hired me on because he wanted a bit more muscle. Protection is my role. I’ll keep you safe and track down any clues about that missing woman. On my watch, nothing will happen to you.”
     She nodded even though—
     I don’t believe you. There is no safety. I learned that.
     “And second . . . you don’t have to bullshit me.”
     Now she blinked in surprise.
     He laughed, a deep, rough rumble of sound that Bailey found she liked to hear.
    “You think I can’t tell when you’re wearing a mask? You’ve got yourself locked down tight, under careful control, don’t you? But you don’t have to do that with me. I’m not one of the North Carolina deputies. I’m not going to judge you. And I’m not some lame-ass reporter who wants to splash your story all over the world.”
     I wear a mask all the time now because something is wrong inside of me. It has been, ever since that fire. That hole. That hell.
     “So let’s put a no-bullshit rule in effect,” he murmured.
     Her hands curled around the steering wheel. “Liking rules, is that more of a military thing again?”
     “Wanting to break rules . . . that’s why I left the SEALs.”
     He’d been a SEAL? She turned to look up at him. “Is there a rule number three?”
     “We’ll get to that rule later . . .”
     She started the vehicle. “I’ll follow you to your place.”
     “Do you have any rules for me?”
     Don’t hurt me. Don’t judge me. Don’t pity me. Bailey cleared her throat. “I’m sure we can get to those rules later, too.”
     He slammed her door shut. Through the window, Bailey watched as he strode away—not to another car, but to a shiny, big monster of a motorcycle. He climbed on, revved the engine moments later, and that rumbling growl filled the parking garage.
     Asher slid the helmet over his head—a black helmet with a dark visor that completely obscured his face. Her heart beat faster as she stared at him.
     Dangerous.
That had been her first thought when she’d seen him in the conference room.
     But he was on her side. Not a threat to her. He’d help her.
   At least, that was what she hoped. Because if something didn’t change soon, Bailey was afraid that the deputies would be right about her. Her shrink would be right.
     I may go crazy.
