delta revenge

Are you ready to meet Javier Almeida?

 Cristin Harber's DELTA: REVENGE is available today! 

Make sure you pick up your copy of this explosive and incredible new novel from Cristin Harber!



A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible. Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs. 

CristinHarber_DeltaRevenge#2_HRMeets Sweet and Sassy Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore. Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man. 

It's a Game Changer Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even want to see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her. Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies. And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.


She couldn’t breathe. Her pulse jumped, and the most feminine part of her body came alive. A current of desire and electricity bounced between them, both their breaths quickening. He stepped closer until they touched. Her chest rose, and his fell. Javier’s hand moved to her bicep, drifting, sliding. He caressed up her neck— so careful, so delicate that he gave her pinpricks until he captured the back of her head with the force of his strong fingers threading harshly through her hair. Sophia sucked a breath and resisted him just because… hmm, just because his grip was iron strong and sure.  

“You want to move?” 

 The tenor of his voice sent trembles straight to her nipples. “I don’t.”  

Javier leaned toward her neck. His breath was hot, his lips even better. They were close enough to feel the heated tickle of skin on skin.  

“No?” Gently, he tugged her hair. “Sophia Cole…”  

Oh, God. He pulled again, firmer, tilting her face so their eyes lined up. She felt as though he could see her every thought without her speaking a word.  

Mmm, nice.”  

She couldn’t stop arching and making that same mmm sound he did. Her eyelids slipped shut, letting the feeling run through her veins, awakening every nerve.  

Paixão.” The whisper of the word contrasted with his hard body, which backed her to the wall. “So good for me.”  

His weight pinned her and, despite the dominant hold, nuzzled her neck. Stubble scratched her as the scent of his shampoo made her weak. Scratchy and coarse, his fingers flexed into her scalp. “It kills me you’re here, and I don’t believe what  you’re doing is about aid work—”  

“It is,” she barely whispered.  

“Liar.” His teeth grabbed her earlobe. The bite stung, and the pain skipped straight down her neck, igniting an erotic fire in her blood, making lust fire in her veins. She wanted more, needed to feel the bite again. But he released and licked the tiny spot and gave it a kiss, and all Sophia could do was tilt her head, a silent plea for him to do it again, which went unanswered. “Tell me, are you lying?”  

Melting at the protective, truthful accusation, she let sanity leave her. If only he’d give her a biting smack of a kiss again. “Maybe.”  

Javier moved faster than she could anticipate. His mouth took hers. A reward. Better than she imagined. His tongue probed, hot and needy. Wanting. His hands crawled over her body, but, God, her mind spun so fast she couldn’t place what was where or how it happened, just that he kissed like a man who could set her insides on fire and make a kiss turn into a touch passionate enough she could’ve been floating.  

She cupped his rough cheeks, and Javier moaned. As if something she did was anything as amazing as what he was doing to her. Their tongues tangled, and his hands clawed her, pulling her to his muscular chest, eating her mouth as though her lips were the only things that could keep the world turning. This tough, strong man telling her good girl, calling her paixão, was worshipping her body, and whatever she had done to deserve it, she wanted to do again.  

Javier growled again. Or maybe this time the masculine sound was a groan. Whatever the noise, he responded because of her. He gripped her hips, backing them again, this time to her bed. The mundane, utilitarian bed was nothing like the last bed they’d been in, and she couldn’t wait to jump into it.

Always For You: Jack by Alexis Morgan ~ Review

Always For You: Jack
Sergeant Joe's Boys #1
by Alexis Morgan

Praised by Susan Mallery as a bestselling author whose "heartfelt, touching stories never disappoint," Alexis Morgan introduces Sergeant Joe's Boys: three brothers living up to a legacy of courageous military service—and pursuing the women who have captured their hearts.

No one understands family loyalty like Jack McShane. He'd do anything to honor his foster father's last wishes, even if it means putting his own plans on hold to manage Joe's construction business. An ex-Special Forces operative, Jack thrives on the thrill of globe-hopping rescues. But now he's needed closer to home. His foster mother has her hands full with a troubled teen, and when Jack meets the hired tutor, he discovers a woman who stirs his protective instincts—and his deepest desires.

Caitlyn Curtis knows that good looks can hide a hot temper. After an abusive marriage crushed her dreams of a happy ending, she swore off men—until one intoxicating dance in Jack's strong arms breaks down every emotional barrier. Tough but tender, he leaves Caitlyn yearning for more of his gentle seduction. Despite the violence he's seen, Jack is a good man. And even though passion can be dangerous, the promise of Jack's kiss tempts her to believe that love is a risk worth taking.


This is the first contemporary romance I have read by Alexis Morgan, I have read her Palidins & Talions sci-fi romance series and loved those. Sergeants Joe's series looks like it will be 3 books long, with each book focusing on a different "brother". Sergeant Joe and his wife couldn't have children, instead, they rescued & adopted 3 boys from broken homes. Always For You is Jack's story.

Jack never thought he would be taking over his father's construction business, but with a career ending knee injury and the death of his Father, he figured the least he could do was finish up his Dad's "to do" list. While working on a job-site, Jack notices a homeless teenager hanging around and recognizes in the boy a bit of himself and offers the kid, Ricky, a job. 

Ricky is seriously injured and hospitalized and the police contact Jack because the kid has his business card. Jack offers, with some help from his Mom, to watch over Ricky while he heals. While Jack is slowly trying to build up trust between him & Ricky, he hires a tutor, Caitlyn, to get Ricky caught up with his school work. 

Sparks fly between Jack & Caitlyn, who has her own trust issues to deal with when it comes to her ex-husband. This book is not your usual romance, it was a full-on emotional read for me. There is more emphasis on outside issues than the romance itself, but it was a very nice change for me. I cannot wait to read the other brother's stories.  

USA Today Best-selling author Alexis Morgan has always loved reading and now spends her days imagining worlds filled with strong alpha heroes and gutsy heroines. She is the author of more than thirty books, novellas, and short stories that span a variety of genres: American West historicals (as Pat Pritchard); paranormal and fantasy romances; and most recently, contemporary romance. Alexis has been nominated for numerous industry awards, including the RITA© from the Romance Writers of America, the top award in the romance genre.

Happy Release Day to J.C. Cliff ~ Quinn: Undaunted Men series ~ Review of books 1 and 2 & Giveaway!

Undaunted Men series book #1
by J.C. Cliff

They’ve done all kinds of work, from private investigations to highly classified governmental operations. Former military, their tight-knit brotherhood is now Atrox Security. These men fear nothing, they are unwavering, unafraid, and unrelenting. They are the Undaunted Men.


He doesn’t want to take the job, but he has no choice. He owes a debt to the Moretti mob, and last he checked, they don’t take no for an answer. 
He takes a moment to soak in the information. A pregnant mafia princess, wanted for murder, and he's supposed to track her down. 
The professed father is a childhood friend, yet he’s considered a potential enemy of the family. This could get very interesting.

What starts out as a simple task, one that could easily take him one day to execute, has turned into so much more than he bargained for. 

They’re each fighting their own personal demons, and it’s more than just a chase at hand. They both have secrets, hearts are on the line, and he resolves himself to go above and beyond the call of duty for reasons he can’t understand. The last thing he ever intends on finding is an angel.

Undaunted Men Series Book #2
by J.C. Cliff

They’ve done all kinds of work, from private investigations to highly classified governmental operations. Former military, their tight-knit brotherhood is now Atrox Security. These men fear nothing, they are unwavering, unafraid, and unrelenting. They are the Undaunted Men.


He never wanted to take the job, but he had no choice. He owed a debt to the Moretti mob, and last he checked, they didn’t take no for an answer. 

Lexi has no phone, no camping experience, and there’s no way to get her back except to track her down. He's put it all on the line…his heart, that is, and she's run away with it. 

He will do anything to protect what is his, and when Lexi blurs the lines between trust and betrayal, she turns his life upside down. He is left to wonder if she ever truly was his angel.

Neither Quinn nor Alexis will ever be the same after surfacing from those mountain trails. They survived the wild, but can they survive each other?


I am choosing to review Quinn as one entire book instead of 2 parts. Please be aware that Quinn book #1 is a cliffhanger!

Quinn is former military and works for Atrox security, he doesn't believe in commitment, unless it's in regards to his dog. Quinn is asked to find the daughter of a mobster who he owes a favor to and the adventures begin from there.  

Lexi is a pampered mafia princess & on the run from her fiancee, who only wants her for the power she can bring him. With the help of a friend, she makes her escape & takes off along the Appalachian trail...with no idea how to actually survive in the wilderness.

Quinn meets up with Lexi along the trail and watches out over her while trying to figure out who is actually after her and why. They have an almost instant sizzling hot connection. 

I only had one small issue in this story and that was the part of Quinn being told that Lexi was pregnant. The circumstances may have called for this in the storyline and I can see that...but it was Lexi's father who told Quinn this info and he should have (?) known that she supposedly has health issues and couldn't get pregnant ??!?? ~ It didn't really detract from the story for me too much.

Overall,  I thought this book was fabulous! Quinn was what I would consider a perfect read...It was full of suspense, action & drama and the characters were just blistering hot!
