Jamie's Juicy Tidbits: Alpha Man


When I first thought about the idea of a weekly Juicy Tidbit post it was mainly to share some good reads with you. Why? Because I’m an addict. My name is Jamie and I’m a “one-click” addict.

Anyway, thanks to my addiction I’ve stumbled upon a couple of great books and I figured I would share them with you. So if you are in the mood for some sexy, dirty, Alpha males I have a couple of great stories.


Blog Tour: Guest Post with Nikki Navarre + Giveaway(International)

Nikki's historical alter ego Laura visited us earlier this year and we've glad to have her back. Nikki is currently on tour for her latest release, THE RUSSIAN SEDUCTION. Here at Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance, we're fans of the undercover hotties especially if he's got piercing eyes of blue like Daniel Craig or knows how to rock a shoulder holster... *wiping drool off faces* We'll let Nikki share her favorite cinematic spies but before that, let's give her a warm welcome back.

WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG NIKKI!!!

Meet Nikki:
Nikki Navarre is the sinister twin of unsuspecting historical romance author Laura Navarre. In her other life, Nikki is a diplomat who’s lived in Russia and works on weapons of mass destruction issues. In the line of duty, she’s been trapped in an elevator in a nuclear power plant and has stalked the corridors of facilities churning out nerve agent and other apocalyptic weapons. In this capacity, she meets many of the world’s most dangerous men.

Inspired by the perilous realities of her real life, Nikki writes romantic suspense set in glamorous international locales and laced with political intrigue. Her literary credentials are suspiciously similar to those of her innocent twin. A member of Romance Writers of America’s Published Author Network (PAN), winner of the 2012 Pacific Northwest Writers Association award for romance and a 2009 Golden Heart finalist, she has won the Emily Award for Excellence, the First Coast

Romance Writers Beacon Award, the Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award, the Golden Pen, Hearts through History’s Romance through the Ages, and other awards. Nikki holds an M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from the University of Southern Maine, an M.A. in National Security Policy from The George Washington University, and other alarming credentials. Based in Seattle with her screenwriter accomplice and two Siberian cats, she divides her time between her writing career and other adventures for U.S. government clients. Her notorious adventures in the world of diplomacy will get her in trouble one of these days.

The Russian Seduction (October 2012) may be the last mistake she ever makes.

Jamie + Kati Double Team Erotica Review: The Angel by Tiffany Reisz

THE ANGEL by Tiffany Reisz
Series: The Original Sinners #2
Format: ARC
Genre: Erotica
Length: 416 pages
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA (September 25, 2012)

No safe word can protect the heart...
Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren–whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin–is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora’s lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora’s protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora’s mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora’s past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

Blog Tour: Interview with Rebecca Rogers Maher + Giveaway(International)

Today we would like to give a warm welcome to Rebecca Roger's Maher. She is currently on tour promoting her new release, FAULT LINES.

WELCOME TO THE BLOG REBECCA!!!

Meet Rebecca:
 I am the author of the Recovery Trilogy—I’ll Become the Sea, Snowbound with a Stranger and Fault Lines. I’m a Vassar graduate, a former community organizer and Brooklyn public school teacher, and a mother to two insanely sweet boys.

I write contemporary romance novels with heroines like women I know — women I grew up with, women I pass on the street — strong women who make mistakes but learn from them. I believe these women deserve happy endings too, as well as lots of hot sex with genuinely kind men.

I live in Brooklyn, New York with my hot, kind husband and our children.

Contemporary eARC Review: Close Enough to Touch by Victoria Dahl

CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH by Victoria Dahl
Series: Jackson Hole #1
Format: eBook via Netgalley
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 384 pages
Publisher: HQN (August 28, 2012)

For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….

Cole Rawlins is a rugged Wyoming cowboy born and bred. Yet he can't help but be drawn to the fascinating big-city girl who moves in across from him. He wants to get close enough to Grace to see past her tough facade, but if he does, she might see the real Cole. The one with a Hollywood history gone bad. As they discover a sizzling attraction, it becomes harder for him to keep his demons at bay—and those fires from long ago may burn them both.

First off, this lovely debut author has been on our radar for quite some time. We first met her on Twitter, indulging and sharing in our love of everything man candy hotness. Soon, the RA Army was born and well, if you haven't seen Richard (why yes, we're on a first name basis) you're missing out. Whether he's rocking a cravat as John Thornton or looking smoking hot in head to toe leather, he's definitely worth a mention in any romance book.

Contemporary ARC Review: Blame It On Texas by Christie Craig


BLAME IT ON TEXAS by Christie Craig
Series: Hotter In Texas #2
Format: ARC
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 464 pages
Publisher: Forever (August 28, 2012)

Zoe Adams has always been content with her quiet nights at home, watching TV alone-until her life turns into a real-life episode of Unsolved Mystery Hunters. The story of a kidnapped girl triggers unexplained memories, and Zoe is dead-set on figuring out why. Her search leads her to one of the Lone Star State's richest families-and to sexy PI Tyler Lopez.

Tyler has sworn off women, especially redheads with killer curves who poke their noses into his clients' private lives. Still, he can't deny the attraction any more than he can deny that some of Zoe's crazy story makes sense. But when she becomes a hit man's target, this cold case starts heating up. Suddenly, Tyler will do anything to protect Zoe-even risk his heart.

Contemporary eARC Review: That Thing Called Love by Susan Andersen

THAT THING CALLED LOVE by Susan Andersen
Series: Razor Bay #1
Format: eBook via Netgalley
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 384 pages
Publisher: HQN (July 31, 2012)

He’s the last man on earth she should want…

For a guy she’s fantasized about throttling, Jake Bradshaw sure is easy on the eyes. In fact, he seriously tempts inn manager Jenny Salazar to put her hands to better use. Except this is the guy who left Razor Bay—and his young son, Austin, who Jenny adores like her own—to become a globetrotting photojournalist. He can’t just waltz back and claim Austin now.

Jake was little more than a kid himself when he became a dad. Sure, he'd dreamed of escaping the resort town, but he’d also truly believed that Austin was better off with his grandparents. Now he wants—no, needs—to make up for his mistake. He intends to stay in Razor Bay only until he can convince Austin to return with him to New York. Trouble is, with sexy, protective, utterly irresistible Jenny in his life, and his bed, he may never want to leave…

Guest Post with Beth Yarnall + Giveaway (International)

We've known debut author Beth Yarnall for a while now. We used to giggle, swoon and drool over hawt men on Twitter for #mancandymonday. It was fun! So naturally, having a fellow man candy Monday maniac on the blog was a definite heck yes! You don't want to miss out on Beth's debut, RUSH.

WELCOME TO THE BLOG BETH!!!

Meet Beth:
Beth Yarnall writes romantic suspense, mysteries and the occasional hilarious blog post. A storyteller since her playground days, Beth remembers her friends asking her to make up stories of how the person `died' in the slumber party game Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board, so it's little wonder she prefers writing stories in which people meet unfortunate ends. In middle school she discovered romance novels, which inspired her to write a spoof of soap operas for the school's newspaper. She hasn't stopped writing since.

For a number of years, Beth made her living as a hairstylist and makeup artist and co-owned a salon with her very best friend. Somehow hairstylists and salons always seem to find their way into her stories. Beth lives deep in the heart of `The O.C.' California with her husband, two sons, and their dog where she is hard at work on her next novel. For more information about Beth and her stories please visit her website- www.bethyarnall.com.

Release Day Giveaway: A SEASON FOR SIN by Vicky Dreiling + Giveaway (US/CA)

We are very excited to share A SEASON FOR SIN with you because it features our favorite hero, Bell, from Vicky Dreiling's previous series. He just appeared out of the blue and we fell in love. Thankfully, Vicky decided to give Bell a book and thus began our love affair with him. Just a note: This novella is a prequel to just introduce you to Bell and the Boys. It is not the first few chapters of the new book in the Sinful Scoundrels trilogy. This is just something to tide you over until Vicky releases Bell's book.

Meet Vicky:

Triple Rita®-finalist Vick Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble”. A native Texan, she holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

***DISCLAIMER: This giveaway is in no way sponsored by Vicky. We are giving A SEASON FOR SIN away because we love Bell and want to share.***

Publisher: Forever Yours (September 4, 2012)

Introducing the Sinful Scoundrels...

The Earl of Bellingham is nothing is not a creature of habit: money, meals, and mistresses must be strictly managed if a man is to have a moment's peace. It's a system that works splendidly for him--until now. With his oldest and dearest friends succumbing, one by one, to wedded bliss, Bell is now restless and a trifle lonely. Enter the Sinful Scoundrels--Colin Brockhurst, Earl of Ravenshire, and Harry Norcliffe, Viscount Evermore--who drag him back into society and draw his rakish eye to the ton's new beautiful young widow. Bell isn't after a wife, but a challenge. And Laura Davenport should fit the bill quite nicely...

When the gossip papers link him to Juliette, one of the most beautiful and celebrated courtesans in London, chaos doesn't begin to describe what happens next...

Until she came along...
Juliette is nicknamed the Duchess of Dalliance and has the cream of the nobility at her beck and call. It's disruptive to have the duke who is the biggest catch on the Marriage Mart scaring her other suitors away. Then she discovers William's darkest secret and decides what he needs in his life is the kind of excitement only she can provide...
