Sheriff Zeke Monroe loves one woman…Honor McKinnon. He is willing to stake his entire future on protecting her…no matter what the cost. 

Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one…not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff…can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down Honor’s walls…and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer. 

He’s already killed for her once…and is willing to do it again if it means she’ll know safety and happiness. 

What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save Honor when her life is in danger once again? 

Join Sarah O’Rourke in this epic culmination of the Men of the McKinnon Sisters stories…and find out how the Passion in Paradise series is always scorching hot! Standalone, romantica suspense.

Alysha’s Thoughts:

Man of Honor, by Sarah O’Rourke, may have started out kind of slow, but it ended with a huge bang. This turned out to be a good read, I was a little confused on following the story line at first. Once you get it all together and straightened out though you can’t put the book down.

Zeke Monroe made and awful decision 8 years ago, once that will haunt him everyday for the rest of his life, but it will continue to haunt Honor in more ways than he could protect her from.  Honor being a young girl and just waiting for her ride fell victim to several men wanting to have a piece of her. Honor had to fight for her life on those terrible days, but she wasn’t aware she would only have to continue to fight for her life and sanity until the danger finally stopped. Being many years older than Honor, Zeke hadn’t realized he was in love with her until after she turned eighteen, two years after her innocence was taken. From that moment he realized his love for her Zeke made a promise to make sure he was always by her side and no more danger would ever come to Honor. Only that task would prove to be more difficult than he thought, since someone was still obviously trying to kill Honor. So Zeke decided to change directions and instead prove his love to Honor, and help her face her demons. He wanted to help Honor fight for her life, to live the life she dreamed of without being scared all of the time. Zeke had waited six years for Honor, he knew he would wait forever, but he needed Honor to face his love once and for all.

“Like hell I will. Where you lead, I follow, Kitten. Whether it’s to the hospital, into the pits of Hell, or straight through the Pearly Gates of Heaven, I am always going to be one step behind you. You’re never gonna get away from me, Honor. Never. Understand?”

Man of Honor – Excerpt

“Not necessarily, but I wouldn’t mind,” Zeke replied truthfully.  “Honor, darlin, you’re a gorgeous woman.”

“Not without my clothes,” she mumbled, bending her head to stare at her clenched fists.  “Ugly,” she muttered.  “I’m ugly.”

Tensing, Zeke’s jaw clenched.  “I don’t know why the hell you’re saying that, but there’s not a single ugly thing about you.  Not when you’re naked.  Not when you’re tryin’ to bring yourself to release.  Not ever, Honor Grace.  You do not ever have to be ashamed of your body.”

Honor slowly lifted her mortified gaze to him.  “You’ve never seen me without my clothes, Zeke.  There are scars.  So many scars.  They’re raised and bumpy.  Some are red and raw.  It’s disgusting, Ezekiel.”

“Bullshit.  Every single one of those marks remind me of one thing, Honor.  One,” he growled, holding up a finger between them.  “You lived.  You survived.  When all the odds were stacked against you, you defied modern medicine and every one of those damned doctors predictions, and you lived.  And all those scars will ever do is remind me of how lucky I am to still have you.  Don’t you ever tell me you’re ugly because you’re the most beautiful thing in my world.  You wanna be scared to share your body with me because of what happened to you?  I get that.  I can accept that.  But worrying about some marks on your flesh?  I love you, baby, but that’s insane.”

Honor stared at him a long time, gauging his sincerity.  “It doesn’t feel silly,” she finally grumbled.

“You need to reassess your feelings then because I assure you, it’s one of the silliest concerns you ever had.  Christ, baby, how long have you been agonizing of a worry as pointless as your scars?” he asked, shoving a frustrated hand through his dark hair.  “I could have put these fears to rest ages ago, Honor, if I’d known about it.”

“It’s hard to talk about,” she revealed in a low voice as her head twisted to look at him.

“Yeah?  Is feeling like shit alone better than talking it over together with me?” he returned calmly, reaching up to tenderly tuck her hair behind one ear.  “Baby, you gotta start getting this.  When you hurt, I hurt.  When you suffer, I suffer right along with you.  Don’t make either one of us feel that way needlessly, Kitten.  Just talk to me.  I know you have scars.  You’ve got them on your body, and you’ve got them on your soul.  I’ve sat by your hospital bed too many times to count and watched you while you did your damnedest to heal them both.  Those wounds are not new information to me and they don’t change shit.  I still love you, and I don’t allow those scars to do anything other than remind me to treasure every day I have with you.  Okay?”

Honor’s eyes were soft as they locked with Zeke’s.  “You really do love me a lot, don’t you?” she asked in a small voice.

“So much that I ache with it, Honor.”

Feyness

Title: Feyness

Author: ES Carter

Genre: Dark Romance

Release Date: August 23

Add to your TBR: http://bit.ly/2b7a4qC

Synopsis

I don’t see dead people.

I see you.

I see every incarnation of you.

I see the history of your soul.

I can see your aura soaked in the blood of your previous lives.

Most people are inherently good or evil.

Some flit between darkness and light.

Few can change the fabric of their essence; it’s a fight that most are too weak to win.

He was once darkness.

An evil so pure that his very soul is black and yet I am drawn to him like a moth to a flame.

Some days, I feel like I am drowning, the waves of my feelings stealing the very air from my lungs.

Other days, I feel nothing at all.

I’m unsure which is worse; gasping for air or dying from this thirst.

Can you learn to breathe underwater when you find someone worth drowning for?

Feyness is a dark standalone.

Readers of a sensitive disposition may want to step away from the book.

Step away, nothing to see here.

Readers who like to dance on the dark side, come on in and enjoy the ride.

Blended By Sasha Brummer

Blended_FrontCover

Cover Design: Sommer Stein/Perfect Pear Creative

Release Date: September 19, 2016

Synopsis

Clichéd sentiments of love are not my thing. Instead, I give into raw temptation and thrive on the physical aspects of what men have to offer. Unemotional, carnal connections are what I live for, and they seem to keep me in a blissfully naïve state.

I’ve gone years with a different man in a different bed each night, but one glance from a ruminating stranger as he lifts my panties to his nose narrows my attraction from multiple men to only one.

I’m not entirely sure how to process the thoughts and passions battling in my mind until he gives me no other choice…until I’m thrust into an unstable emotional high that I cannot seem to resist.

His objective is to break me in and savor me as if I’m his favorite bottle of single malt whiskey.

I’m well aware of my sensual dependencies.

He’s unaware that his still exist.

Synopsis

When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises.

Not a jail.

I’d been kidnapped and imprisoned.

I wasn’t alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I’d loved since I was a kid.

The man I couldn’t be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was.

Someone wanted to torture me.

Torture us.

One of us deserved it.

It wasn’t Garin.
